‘This is a long-term war’: Teron ‘Father of Kanata’ builds war chest to fight highrise proposal Hazeldean library branch will temporarily close for six months starting in January.

CONTROL An abused woman tells her story and how she took control of her life.

BLAIR EDWARDS blair.edwards@metroland.com

Bill Teron, the “Father of Kanata�, is vowing to fight what he calls “a systemic sickness� in the city’s planning process, rubber-stamping requests for infill developments even if they don’t fit the identity of a community. Teron said he is recruiting the country’s top urban planners, architects and lawyers to fight spot zoning requests for highrise buildings in low-rise communities. “This is a long-term war,� Teron told the KourierStandard. “We will have the top architects and planners, the top lawyers on urban matters,� he said. “We have a systemic problem in Ottawa of urban spot zoning.� Teron said he will spearhead a fundraising effort to amass a $1-million “war chest� to fight spot-zoning requests across the City of Ottawa, working with community groups across the municipality. He said $250,000 of that money will be needed to fight a proposal to build a 16-storey highrise at the site of the old Canada Post building at 2 The Parkway in Beaverbrook. Teron spoke against the proposal during a meeting hosted by the City of Ottawa, at the Mlacak Centre on Monday, Dec. 12. During his speech, he received a standing ovation from the hundreds of people in the packed hall.

Meaghan Pearson continues to inspire others JESSICA CUNHA jessica.cunha@metroland.com

Family and friends of Meaghan Pearson, the young women who passed away from cancer earlier this year, gathered at The Ottawa Hospital Rehabilitation Centre for the unveiling of a new inspirational poster on Thursday, Dec. 8. Bernard Houle, a graphic artist at the hospital, created the poster in memory of Meaghan and to encourage other patients at the centre with her inspirational message: “It’s not what’s been taken from you, it’s what you do with what you have left.” “This is just perfect,” said Karen Pearson, Meaghan’s mother, as she, her husband Jim and son Ryan pulled a white sheet from the poster for the first unveiling. “It’s what Meaghan would have wanted.” The Kourier-Standard published Meaghan’s story last August, where the 22-year-old shared her positive outlook on life after being diagnosed with cancer and given one month to live. Meaghan passed away one day after the article was printed. The poster, which features photos of Meaghan and her

met,” said Helen Zipes, clinical director for the rehabilitation centre and family health teams. She said Meaghan’s message of working with what you have been given, and not focusing on what has been taken away, will

help other patients who are recovering at the rehabilitation centre. “It really is inspirational to patients and to families,” said Zipes. “That’s important, that’s our message here.

“I think going past that poster is going to help, I think it’s really going to make them think about what’s important in life.” Meaghan was diagnosed at the age of 21 with rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare and aggressive form of cancer. The young woman shared the story about her personal struggles and ultimate acceptance about what life handed her during her final weeks. Take everything as it comes, be thankful and don’t worry about what you can’t control, was the message she wanted to spread. “What makes someone truly special is the impact they have on other people,” said Gerald Wolff, one of Meaghan’s doctors at the hospital. “(Meaghan) wanted to go beyond and help others. She thought it was important to disseminate her message. For this, I’m thankful. “We will continue to share her message with others, to honour her memory.” Family and friends reminisced about Meaghan and her impact on each of them. “I’m very, very pleased with it,” said her father, Jim, about the poster. “I think it depicts Meaghan. It captures a lot of what (life is) all about.”

The Capital Hoedown was the main issue discussed at the Katimavik-Hazeldean Community Association meeting on Monday, Dec. 5. Although members of the community raised a few concerns, the majority are for the country music festival being hosted at Walter Baker Park next year, said Rod MacLean, president of the community association. “We kind of like the idea,” said MacLean. “I hope this is a success. The idea of bringing that many people into Kanata sounds almost overwhelming but it’s worth a try.” Some of the issues raised by residents include the lighting for the event and parking on the streets. “Some people are quite concerned about how the parking is going to work,” said MacLean. “The essential thing we can do is say that bylaw is aware of that…I don’t think we’ll have too much of an (issue) with Capital Hoedown.” Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley said he’s working to ensure side streets don’t become parking lots during the three-

day festival. “We’ll probably go to designate several of the side streets as no street parking,” said Hubley. “Residents will be given a permit if they want side street parking.” He said there will be a strict ticketing policy in place for people parking on side streets without the proper permits. Hubley added he is working to create a “strong shuttle service” for the event to help control the number of cars parking in the area, and there will be a big lot for bicycle parking. There will be no parking at the Kanata Recreation Complex or in the parking lots off Maple Grove Road. “There will be no public parking on site,” said Hubley. There will be a main pedestrian drop-off area at the recreation centre, including for Para Transpo users. The shuttle will use the parking lots off Maple Grove to drop off passengers, he said. Lighting for the event is another concern raised by residents, said MacLean, who added he was told lighting would be directed away from Katimavik. “It will be what is described as street lighting throughout the park,” he said.

making every effort to ensure that the concerns are brought to the appropriate attention,” he said. “This is kind of our real first full fledged experience of a three-day event. We want it to be a success.” COMMUNITY UPDATES

Walter Baker Park will play host to the Capital Hoedown three-day festival next year. Hubley said most of the lights will be turned off after the festival shuts down each night, but a few will be left on for safety reasons. “The lights will be facing away from the houses,” he said. Alcohol consumption and over indulgence was another issue residents voiced. “The police are fully aware of what’s required. The organizer is aware that they have to make sure that if you ask to be served you meet all the qualifications,”

said MacLean. “With police backup that should be manageable, that should work out.” Hubley added there will be control points on site to ensure no one is sneaking booze onto the grounds and to monitor consumption. “(We’ll be) monitoring service at the site to make sure no one is over served,” he said. MacLean said he is satisfied with the planning so far for the country festival. “As far as I can see (Hubley is)

MacLean updated residents on a number of areas concerning the community at the association meeting. Young’s Pond, which is turned into a skating rink during the winter months, now has a water pump on site. The city will no longer be taking care of flooding the rink, said MacLean, so the community association is looking for volunteers to monitor and flood the rink surface. Those interested in volunteering can send an email to president@khca.on.ca. The Katimavik-Hazeldean association is also hosting a Christmas-Holiday Season Home Lights Contest. Deadlines to submit homes is Friday, Dec. 16 and judging will take place on Dec. 18. Prizes will be handed out to the top three homes at the next community association meeting on Jan. 9.

Development needs have changed in Beaverbrook: urban planner TERON, from 1 Ken Hoppner, vice-president of Morley Hoppner Group, brought several technical experts to provide details of its proposed highrise. Miguel Tremblay, a landuse planner with FoTenn Consultants who represents the builder, said the development needs for the community have changed since Beaverbrook was first designed by Teron in

the 1960s and ’70s. The City of Ottawa has made a commitment to encourage infill development and to restrict the growth of the urban boundary, he said. A highrise will allow people who are looking to downsize to remain in the community of Beaverbrook and offer homebuyers a greater selection, he said. “You should have a wellrounded housing stock,” he

...no Strings Attached

said. “The reason why you feel your community is special is the same reason the developer wants to contribute to that community,” he told the crowd, who responded with immediate laughter. “Nonsense,” shouted one man in the crowd. In an earlier interview with the Kourier-Standard, Hoppner said the proposed highrise will have up to 125 units and 160 people are already on a waiting list. Condos have recently become popular in the city because they meet the needs of an aging baby boomer community, Hoppner said. The Morley-Hoppner Group said building a highrise would allow the developer to preserve a larger section of greenspace and trees. After the hour-long presentation, Teron was invited to speak. “There’s an unfortunate policy in the City of Ottawa right now, in which it appear that our city government actually encourages and approves random spot zoning any place,” he said. Teron asked the com-

munity members at the meeting to fill out a survey, asking residents if the highrise proposal meets various criteria in the city’s Official Plan or zoning bylaws. Teron said he believes the highrise will be approved by council, and, if appealed, by the Ontario Municipal Board. “But I can tell you, five minutes later, we will be putting in our appeal with our war chest and our determination and other neighbourhoods behind us.” Teron promised to take unwanted infill development proposals all the way to the court of appeal. “There is a systemic sickness, a systemic problem of random spot zoning which defies the rule of law and defies planning,” Teron said. “Planning is to avoid conflict, between density, between noise, between industry and all the rest of it. “We welcome you guys with all your projects and what have you,” he added. “But you’re not going to do this in the community, except over our dead bodies.”

The team wanted to show their appreciation to the community, so they made a $50 donation to the Kanata Food Bank last week.” The cheerleaders, who practice at the facility on Iber Road in Stittsville, have been hosting birthday parties as part of their fundraising effort. “The cheerleaders lead the birthday group in games, stretches and an easy cheer routine, and then the (birthday) group gets to use the party room for their cake and presents,” said Morrison. The parties are hosted by experienced team members and supervised by a certified coach, said the Storm’s website. A twohour party for 15 children costs $150. All the proceeds from the birthday parties will be used to help fund the Storm’s senior team’s trip to Orlando in the spring. The junior and senior teams attended their first competition of the season, The Cheer Alliance Cheer for the Cure, in Oshawa on Dec. 10. The tiny, mini, youth and parent teams will perform for the public at the Capital City Storm Holiday Showcase on Dec. 16, at 7 p.m. at Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Stittsville, where everyone is welcome, said Morrison.

The Hazeldean library branch will be closed from Jan. 23 to June 15, 2012, the city has announced. Services will be available at the Beaverbrook branch during that period as the Hazeldean library undergoes much-needed renovations, including an update and centralized location for borrower and information services within the branch. There will also be upgrades to make the branch more accessible. The changes are needed because the Hazeldean branch has remained virtually unchanged for 30 years, noted a city report. This renovation will make it viable for another 10 to 15 years. “We recognize there’s an inconvenience here,” said Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley. “The library is in need of these updates and it will be done as quickly as possible.” Kanata South will also benefit from the additional of a

new bookmobile stop coming to Bridlewood in January, Hubley said. Books and other materials checked out from the Hazeldean branch will need to be returned to a different branch during the closure. Any materials held in the Hazeldean branch’s collection won’t be available during the closure, but holds from other branches will be sent to the Beaverbrook library. The new Bookmobile service in Bridlewood is also set to start in January of 2012. Staff from the Hazeldean branch will be transferred to other branches during the closure, but will still respond to requests for visit from day cares, schools and community organizations. Homebound service will operate normally.

City to start paying rent for Beaverbrook Community Centre LAURA MUELLER laura.mueller@metroland.com

The city is getting ready to sign a 20-year lease for the Beaverbrook Community Centre, which it occupied rent-free in the past. A long-term lease with Coplan Realty Company Limited and McKeen Foodmarkets Limited is up at the end of this year, and the landlord wants to start charging rent. The new agreement, which would let the city continue to use the space at 2 Beaverbrook Rd. until 2031, would see the city paying a base rent of $37,210 per year. On top of that, the city will pay an operating rent of $12,549 plus HST per year, and $6,000 plus HST for the outdoor pool area. That’s a reasonable rate at the low end of the spectrum, according to a third-party assessment contained in a city report. It’s also a much better deal than having to find a new location and develop comparable facilities such

as the pool, said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson. Although the landlord gave the space to the city rent-free in the past, that doesn’t mean the city didn’t spend any money on the community centre. In the past, the city covered all of the community centre’s expenses related to operating the outdoor pool and public tennis court. The city also paid for its proportionate share of the operating costs for common areas such as parking lot maintenance. Those expenses added up to $24,721 the city paid to the landlord in 2010. On top of that, the operating and maintenance cost for the city’s programs amounted to $66,000 in 2010. The centre includes a nursery school and offers programs such as Irish dance, Scouts/Guides, fitness and wellness classes and cultural programs. Those programs are operated through an agreement with the Kanata Beaverbrook Community Asso-

ciation (KBCA), which is set to receive $24,264 in city funding in 2012 to offer those programs. The city itself provides swimming lessons and public swimming at the outdoor pool. The city also runs the only two public tennis courts in the community at the Beaverbrook Community Centre. There is a risk that the Beaverbrook facilities could “dwindle” in the next five years, after the new Kanata North Recreation Complex is completed and residents begin using that facility instead. To that end, the new lease will contain a clause that lets the city out of the contract with six months notice. Along with the building’s other tenants, the city will also be responsible for paying for a new roof for the community centre, which will cost $3,789 per year over 15 years, plus 15 per cent interest. The community centre has been located at 2 Beaverbrook Rd. since 1988.

EDITORIAL

Allow police to do their job

B

alancing the need to keep the public safe with protecting the integrity of an ongoing criminal investigation, Ottawa police are acting in everyone’s best interests after linking a series of murders in the city. When police Chief Vern White addressed the media during a press conference at the Minwaashin Lodge last week, he was sparse with his details about what appears to be a pattern of homicides targeting women working in the sex trade. But that’s not to say he didn’t get his message across. White said police believe there is potential danger lurking in our city, and women, particularly sex workers, are the target. He warned them to “be vigilant and exercise good safety practices” – good advice at the best of times, but especially when there is a specific threat to women’s safety in the city. He did not, however, provide any further detail. No description of a suspect, no indication of any specific area under threat, no mention of which murders might be linked, nor what particular clues led police to come to that conclusion. Nor did they need to. In fact, to do so might have allowed the criminal or criminals to avoid the law.

Police have to walk a fine line between informing the public and not tipping off suspects. Driving suspects underground, or even out of town, only serves to douse the threat until the heat dies down or, perhaps worse, causing it to leave town, foisting our problem on to some other unsuspecting city that must then connect the dots. At least a portion of police work comes down to instinct. In this case, Ottawa police may have a strong hunch about the threat, and rather than waiting to discover some more credible evidence, they have chosen to warn the public now. Even if their hunch is wrong, keeping women on their guard at night does no one any harm. But prematurely releasing unconfirmed information may cause unneeded panic and allow a killer to escape. When the police need the public’s help, we should trust that they’ll promptly ask for it. As it stands now, police are conducting an investigation into what appear to be a series of related crimes against women in the sex trade. The public has been warned and should be on their guard. We now need to remain vigilant and allow the professionals to do their jobs.

Lining up to be one of the first

T

he world is divided into two types of people and you saw one type at the IKEA opening last week. There are those who have to be part of the crowd on the first day of any event and there are those who wouldn’t be caught dead anywhere near it. I’m in the second group, which is nothing against IKEA. I might trundle on out there in a few weeks when the excitement wears off. Being in the second group, I have difficulty relating to the first group. Some of it I can understand. People might want to get their picture in the paper for being first in line. People might like the excitement of being in a crowd. I always thought crowds were too crowded. And I always thought standing in line was one of the least fruitful forms of human endeavour. For example, when my kids were of pub-going age, I would frequently bore them to death with my theory that standing in line to get into a pub was stupid because once you got in there you’d have to stand in line for everything else. The looks I got. I didn’t understand, and still don’t. I’m the one happily

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town eating at the place down the street, the one where nobody goes. In happier days, a bunch of us would make the trek down the 417 to catch the Montreal Expos opening day. It was fun, but flawed. The place was packed, but there were too many drunks and thrill-seekers there, the kind of people who have to be somewhere on opening day, rather than the kind of people who liked baseball. They wouldn’t be back on Day 2. So some of us took to going down the 417 for the second day of the season. That was much better. It was quieter, we could concentrate on the game and we had the stadium pretty much all to ourselves (which is maybe one reason why there are no Montreal Expos to see

any more). Those of us who don’t care if we’re first, don’t suffer all that much. We get our iPads a few months later, we get a good meal at the unfashionable restaurant around the corner, we see the hot new movie in its second week. Best of all, we never have to sleep outdoors on the pavement in a tent. Now it’s true we miss out on the Boxing Day specials and we will never experience Black Friday. We don’t consider these major disappointments. There are quite enjoyable things you can do on Boxing Day that don’t require being outside at the crack of dawn. There are people who would not understand that, just as there are people I will never understand, like the guy who stayed outside IKEA all night before it opened and told the Citizen: “I just want to check it off my bucket list, to say I’ve waited all night for something.” I just checked my bucket list, and that didn’t seem to be on it. We are two solitudes, the ones who have to be first and the ones who don’t, the ones who stand in line and the ones who don’t, the ones who are drawn to

crowds and the ones who are drawn away. To be fair, it is not an easy thing to be first in line. There is the camping out, which will be cold and unpleasant and you could get hungry. It is not an easy thing to be part of the crowd on opening day. If you’ve ever seen the intersection of Greenbank and Iris, you know it’s pretty gruesome at the best of times. Imagine it when a lot more people want to use it at the same time. You need patience and dedication. Both of which I admire. I always wish you well, from a safe distance.

People’s Choice Awards seeking nominations JESSICA CUNHA jessica.cunha@metroland.com

The Kanata Chamber of Commerce is looking for the public’s input to see what businesses should be nominated for a People’s Choice Business Award. Online nominations are now open for residents to submit the names of businesses in the Kanata, Goulbourn and West Carleton areas for outstanding contributions in the community. The nomination period will close at midnight on Dec. 22. “This event is a great way to showcase the many businesses and individuals who make our community of Kanata, Goulbourn and West Carleton such a great place to live, work and play,” said Rosemary Leu, general manager of the Kanata Chamber of Commerce. “Most people like to feel appreciated. I think if you have a business or individual who goes above and beyond in their work and for the community than this is a fabulous way to give them recognition for the effort they put into what they do.” Voting for the nominated businesses will open on Jan. 9 and close at midnight on Feb. 3. Award categories range from community support non-profit, to organization of the year to restaurant of the year. “As human beings it’s often a little harder for us to stop and thank and recognize people, and I think this is a great way to do that,” said Leu.

Twenty-seven awards will be presented to businesses, organizations and individuals in the three geographic regions represented by the Chamber. The awards recognize exceptional service in the community, as voted by those who know them best, the residents of Kanata, Goulbourn and West Carleton, said Leu. This year’s 13th annual Kanata Chamber of Commerce People’s Choice Business Awards Gala will take place at the Brookstreet Hotel in Kanata on Feb. 23. The event will be centered on the organization’s 20th anniversary, which it celebrated this past October. “It will still be very much a glitzy, glamourous awards theme like last year,” said Leu. “I can’t give away too much, but the 20th anniversary is the key part.” Last year, the Chamber received a record number of over 10,000 votes for the nominated businesses, with 254 nominees in 12 categories. All those interested in submitting nominations and placing their votes for this year’s awards can find more information on the website at www.kanatachamber. com. The Kanata Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit organization that helps create a positive business environment and contribute to the success of the Kanata, Goulbourn and West Carleton business community by providing leadership, representation, information and networking opportunities.

The city is finally preparing to roll out a new fee for developers aimed at providing some benefits to the neighbouring community in exchange for taller, denser developments. In the vein of some recent negotiations that have seen developers provide additional money for community projects in exchange for rezonings, the city wants to make use of a Planning Act provision that lets it ask for money to pay for community centres, sidewalk improvements, child-care centres, parks and other amenities that will serve the residents of the new development and their neighbours. It’s a move aimed at calming some of the stormy community reaction that often follows development proposals that exceed existing height restrictions on their properties, especially in the city’s urban areas, in favour of intensification. Encouraging more people to live downtown is a key city policy meant to curb urban sprawl, but changing the zoning to allow for intensified development often leaves neighbours feeling shortchanged. Taking advantage of community benefits through “Section 37” payments (the section of the provincial Planning Act that allows them) should make intensification less of a bitter pill to swallow for downtown communities, said city planners who explained the policy to about 40 people gathered at city hall on Dec. 6. Those people, many of whom represented community associations, have been awaiting the guidelines as a way to get something back for the community when large developments come into the neighbourhood.

City planners Stan Wilder and Alain Miguelez explain how the city will ask developers to contribute financially to community improvements, known as “Section 37”. But many of them were unhappy with the results of the guidelines, saying the policy wouldn’t collect enough money to make it worthwhile. City planner Stan Wilder cautioned residents not to expect “many millions of dollars.” Instead, the payment from each new, large development would likely fall within the hundreds of thousands. “This is peanuts. It’s worth nothing,” said Paul Goodkey from the Old Ottawa East Community Association, adding, “It’s not worth the time.” But Alain Miguelez, another city planner, noted that getting some form of community benefit is better than nothing, which is what the community gets now.

say developers can absorb that additional cost because they already have a low profit margin. “The question for a developer is how much is he going to raise his prices to pay the blackmailer at the city and hope to end up with a few pennies in his pocket,” Herbert said. Developers feel penalized by the policy because they feel the upzonings are needed in order to hit the intensification targets the city has set, Herbert said. “They basically put a gun to our head and said, ‘These are the only projects we’ll approve,’” Herbert said, referring to dense development, and now there will be an extra fee to do that, he added. CALCULATING THE CONTRIBUTION

DEVELOPERS DISSATISFIED The policy has also left a bad taste in the mouths of developers, said John Herbert, executive director of the Greater Ottawa Homebuilders’ Association. He said developers are simply going to tack that additional fee onto the price of new homes or condo units. He said it’s a “red herring” to

The calculation is complicated, but at a basic level, the city would calculate the value of the zoning “uplift” for larger proposed buildings of more than 7,000 square metres (approximately nine storeys) where the request represents a 25per-cent or higher increase in the height or density allowed.

SECTION 37, from 10 Those same figures would be used to calculate the increase in the gross floor area of the development, and a value (calculated annually and approved by council) would be applied. From there, amounts would be subtracted based on the age of the existing zoning (the developer would have to pay less if the zoning is considered out of date), the relevance to the city’s Official Plan, the retention or rehabilitation of heritage features

and the implementation of the proposed benefits. That “reduction pyramid” structure was confusing and imprecise to some, including Katie Paris of the Wellington Village Community Association. While it’s mostly applicable to intensification target areas, the city decided to make the fee apply to developments across the city. The worry was that if it was only charged in certain areas, the fee would discourage development in those areas and lead to more sprawl.

However, the Section 37 fees would be calculated at a different level for the inner urban, outer urban and suburban/ rural areas of the city. Some people in attendance at the meeting, including Jay Baltz of the Hintonburg Community Association, pointed out that including some semi-suburban neighbourhoods like Alta Vista in the “inner urban” area would drag down the uplift value the community would get for the densest developments downtown. Brian Bourns, who lives in both Cen-

tretown and West Carleton, agreed, saying the policy “discriminates against dense development” by making it cheaper to build low-density developments. Ottawa is pioneering this rate-based system for calculating Section 37 benefits. Elsewhere, the contribution is appraised for each development. The city will use the rate-per-squaremetre system for a one-year trail period. If it doesn’t work, Ottawa could revert back to the more-common practice of individual development appraisals.

Fourteen candles for 14 women. A 15th flame for the nameless victims of violence. The white pillars were lit to honour the women killed in 1989 by a gunman at École Polytechnique and all the nameless women who have suffered violence at the hands of others. More than 100 people attended the Dec. 6 vigil at the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre in Kanata to honour and remember the 14 women killed in the Montreal Massacre, as well as all abused and murdered women everywhere. “We are here to remember,â€? said Judy, who escaped an abusive marriage 22 years ago. “It has been a slow climb up the ladder of self-esteem but I did it.â€? Judy’s story is “similar to everyone else’s,â€? she said. “We ignore the red flag signals.â€? She suffered through years of emotional and verbal abuse before seeking help at a Carleton Place women’s shelter. “My funny, nice partner was an abuser,â€? she said to the crowd of people gathered outside the resource centre. “Why didn’t I have bruises so people could see I was abused?â€? Judy, who didn’t want her last name

published, said she was told repeatedly she was “useless,â€? a “whoreâ€? and an “ice-princess,â€? words she began to believe were true. “I feel useless; isn’t that what I’m always told?â€? she said. “My bruises were on the inside. “My bruises were no less hurtful.â€? There are many reasons why women may stay in an abusive relationship, she said, citing a lack of resources, children to consider, a fear of leaving, a fear of the unknown and “the fear to let others know your happy little family is a sham.â€? But there is hope, she said, adding the vigil is a way to remember those women who suffer and have suffered at the hands of others. ‘END THE VIOLENCE’ Every year the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre holds a vigil in honour of the women killed in the Montreal Massacre. On Dec. 6, 1989, a 25-year-old man walked into École Polytechnique in Montreal with a rifle and a hunting knife. He entered a classroom, separated the men from the women and then shot

the females, claiming he was “fighting feminism.� He gunned down 28 people, killing 14, before turning the rifle on himself. “It’s something that shocked all of us at the time, that this type of thing was still possible,� said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson. “It’s destroyed so many lives, I just think of what the waste is for society.� Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley said the vigil is a way to prevent a recurrence of the tragedy. In 1991, Parliament recognized the tragic event by declaring Dec. 6 the National Day of Mourning and a National Day to End Violence Against Women. “Tonight we remember those women,� said Cathy Jordan, executive director of the resource centre, adding 476 women have been murdered by their partners since that day. “There’s much to be done by everyone to stop violence against women. Together we can end the violence.� Violence against women is still prevalent, said Mayor Jim Watson. “These are our mothers, our sisters, our daughters,� he said to the crowd. VIGIL, see page 13

their support. “It shouldn’t happen and it shouldn’t be tolerated,” said Kappa Sigma president Adam Zavadil, who lives in Nepean, about violence against women. “I think it shows to the community – because we are a fraternity and there are stereotypes – that we do care and we do support the community. We come out here every year.”

It’s been five years since Maryanne left her abusive boyfriend. Five years of freedom from a man who told her who she could talk to, how to dress, and where she was allowed to go outside of the house. Five years since she took her life back. Now the west-end Ottawa woman is speaking out in the hopes of aiding other women in hurtful relationships seek the help she found. “It’s important for me to be able to give back,” she said. “I wanted women to know that there is life after this. I mean, it’s not going to be easy but you can do it.” Maryanne is a pseudonym to protect her identity. Sitting in a board room at the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre – which offers a vast array of community, health and social programs in the Goulbourn, Kanata, West Carleton and Nepean areas – Maryanne is dressed in a grey-knit sweater that hugs her trim frame and dark-washed blue jeans. Just that morning, the middle-aged woman dyed her short spiky hair a deep and vibrant shade of red, something she wouldn’t have been able to do five years ago without her partner’s consent. “I think (abuse is) like cancer,” said Maryanne. “There’s no discrimina-

tion, it reaches across all walks of life, all financial walks of life.” ‘IT’S A CYCLE’ Maryanne and her partner both grew up in abusive homes. “It’s a cycle,” she said. “Growing up I always thought, ‘I’ll never be like my mom, ever.’ Guess what? I turned out just like that because I went right into that type of relationship.” She and her partner had been friends before entering into a romantic relationship. Maryanne had heard rumours that he could be controlling but she shrugged them off. “We were friends for a long time, he was always good with me and I knew what my character was so I thought he’d never be like that with me,” she said. “I guess I should have taken it more seriously. That was the mistake I made.” The abuse lasted for a number of years before Maryanne sought help for her and her toddler. He wasn’t physically abusive towards her – which was one of the reasons why she stayed so long with him. Because she didn’t have visible bruises it was hard to classify what her boyfriend did as abuse, she said. Instead, he hurt her mentally and verbally. Maryanne’s partner told her where she could go, who she could talk to, what she could wear and how to style

her hair. Maryanne couldn’t take their child to the park because her boyfriend was afraid she might talk to another man. If he didn’t like her clothes, she changed them. She couldn’t dye her hair without his consent. Lipstick and nail polish colours needed his approval first. “I was a stay-at-home mom and I was very much kept under thumb,” said Maryanne. “I went from being a very independent, confident person right down to the bottom.” She had thought about leaving before, looking up services for women and even threatening to leave. But she didn’t do it.Then one day several years ago, the abuse escalated into a physical confrontation. Maryanne decided she had had enough. “We got into a bit of a match; he was grabbing me,” she said, adding their child witnessed the attack. “I said you need to stop this, our child is watching.” The infant was removed from the room but the assault continued. “That’s when I picked up the phone and called the police.” Her partner was charged with assault and tossed in jail for the night, and Maryanne was left with nowhere to go, with no job to support herself or her child. So she picked up the phone and started making plans. TAKING CONROL, see 15


TAKING BACK CONTROL

ROAD TO RECOVERY In the days and months that followed, Maryanne used a variety of services available for abused women. She moved into a women’s shelter, signed up for welfare, and registered with a social housing agency. “I think it’s about grabbing every straw that you can get, using every service available,” she said. “They say it takes a community to raise a child; it takes a community to help a woman. If she reaches out, that community can be there to support her and her children.” Maryanne joined group counselling for women who had been abused at the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre (WOCRC). “I reached out,” she said. “I think it was just to know that there were other women out here. It’s to know there are other women that went through it; for

people get into these types of situations and they don’t know where to turn, what options they have. I think it’s an important piece of the work that we do, helping women make the best decision for themselves and for their children.” Maryanne said it’s important other women realize there is a better life out there and they don’t have to put up with an abusive or violent partner. “This is a great place, a great centre. You have good people here that care,” she said. “If it doesn’t feel right, than don’t do it. Get out, find a way, reach out. Know you can access services. There’s power in people. There’s a lot of power in women.” IMPROVEMENTS NEEDED Maryanne said the legal system isn’t strong enough in terms of helping women and changes need to be made to better help females end their feeling of being victimized. Many times legal proceedings are stalled, or pushed back, keeping the woman in a perpetual state of anxiety, she said. “You’re re-victimized through the process but you’ve still got to keep going,” she said. “That’s challenging, just to go through the system. But I managed to go through it.” TAKING CONTROL, see 16

“Maybe I used the anger I had built up. I jumped off the cliff without fully engaging my wings but as soon as I jumped, I realized I could flap. I got myself organized, packed everything up and went to the shelter,” she said. “You have to get on the ground and start pushing and pushing and pushing. This is your life you’re fighting for, your child’s life you’re fighting for.”

me, that was really important.” She said meeting other women who had similar experiences and receiving the support from counsellors helped her to begin again. It’s important to have someone who is trained in dealing with abusive situations to talk to; someone to say the decision to leave was the right one. Abusers are so good at what they do “you think you’re going crazy,” said Maryanne. “You need councellors to tell you, ‘No, this isn’t right.’” The decision to leave an abusive relationship is never easy – especially when there are children involved, said Cathy Jordan, executive director of the WOCRC. “Being able to access the services when you’re ready for them is really, really critical,” Jordan said. The resource centre offers a host of programs for women and children caught in violent or abusive situations, including one-on-one counselling, group and peer support counselling, transitional housing support programs, a child witness program and a number of in crisis lines for those in immediate danger. According to its 2010-11 annual report, the WOCRC hosted 3,104 counselling sessions in the violence against women program. “The services that we offer aren’t just about women leaving; it’s about women being safe,” said Jordan. “Sometimes

Ending the cycle of abuse TAKING CONTROL, from 15 Improvements need to be made in the school system as well, said Maryanne. Violence against women programs are taught in high schools, but students should be educated earlier. “I think our system needs to change, start teaching kids at a young age that this is unacceptable,” said Maryanne. “You’re always programmed what goes on in the house stays in the house. Well guess what, it doesn’t.” One year after leaving her abusive partner, Maryanne went back to school, studying in a program that would allow

her help to other women. She completed her school placement at the WOCRC before taking a job with the city working with others in need of a helping hand. “I want to be a part of that system, always, to give back,” said Maryanne. Through her job, she’s referred a number of clients to the community resource centre in Kanata. “I tell them I know first hand what the programming is,” said Maryanne. “I think for anyone to reach out, it takes courage. “It’s like climbing a ladder one rung at a time but knowing there’s a top.”

After a successful year which saw the Kanata Seniors Council break new ground with the introduction of the two-week long West Fest Fun Fest, and organize a West Ottawa Seniors Summit attended by nearly 60 participants, it’s now looking at a possible melt down in one of its staple and consistently popular programmes, The Council Café. “We’re really up against it,” said Frank Zeitlhofer who, as café scheduler knows the ins and outs of keeping the cafe going. “What a lot of people don’t realise is that we’re all volunteers. It says a lot for the professionalism resident here – whether it’s our shoppers who look for the best bargains, the cooks who whip up imaginative, nutritional meals, or those who wait on tables, do the cash, keep the dishwashers stacked and going. “And we do all of this in accordance with the very stringent public health regulations that we are bound to meet in serving the public.” However, not only are volunteers in short supply but the position of cafe manager has now fallen vacant. John Kern, who has rendered outstanding service in his position as café manager, will be retiring at the end of January. “It’s a challenging position,” said Kern, “but it’s one of the most rewarding I know. It involves working with our kitchen volunteers, whether they be students or seniors, training them in their various positions, keeping an eye on supplies, menus and costs, setting out the goals and objectives for the coming year, and generally being responsible for all facets of running a program which, on an average day, feeds about 50 patrons at lunch time.” Kern said, in some cases the

the elements, are free to use the public computers and printer the maintenance and costs of which are also the responsibility of the council. Over and above those regular programs, the council organizes and runs a number of special events which, in the words of council president Kay Dubie, “we could never do were it not for the

hot lunches are the only full meal that some of their patrons will have in a day. “Contrary to popular belief, our cafe is open to all but, to meet the demands of what is a steadily growing public, we need our volunteers and we need them badly.” Students volunteering to work in the cafe can log in the hours as community service. “We’ve got a tremendous team,” said Zeitlhofer referring to the student volunteers, “but a lot of them are moving on.” Zeitlhofer said that Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays are “looking pretty lean at the moment.” The shifts are not that long, he said. The Monday and Friday shift runs from 11.30 a.m. to 3.15 p.m. and the Saturday one from 9.45 a.m. to 2.15 p.m. The crisis at the cafe is real and, said Kanata Seniors Council president Kay Dubie, “one of a magnitude we’ve not faced before. We really need some help. It’s a great opportunity help out in your community, to meet some wonderful people and ... incidentally ... enjoy some really great food.” Those interested can contact the council by telephone: 613599-8156; by e-mail: council@ kanataseniors.ca marking the message to the attention of Kay Dubie or even drop in to take a look at the senior centre at the Mlacek Centre, 2500, Campeau Drive, Kanata. and perhaps enjoy a cup of coffee or tea in the Council Café. Apart from the Council Café, which forms one of the most popular permanent programs organized and run by the Kanata Seniors Council, there are others which include the successful “trips” program and the equally popular computer tutorials where seniors can sign up for a package of three hour-long oneon-one sessions with a qualified instructor and, after mastering

Roadshow is in Ottawa...3 Days Left For complete information see ad below

TERRY INKLER Canadian Collectors Roadshow Staff Writer After very successful shows in Newmarket and Burlington, The Roadshow is coming to to Barrie. Ottawa.SoSoyou youhad hadbetter better search search through your attics and garages, go through your lock boxes and jewellery, because you may be sitting on a small fortune and not even know it! Roadshow experts are here to examine all your antiques, collectibles, gold and silver.

Local Roadshow Expert Examines Some Gold Jewellery

During a show near Toronto, a woman came in with a jewellery box that she had just inherited from her late aunt. “I don’t wear jewellery,” explained Barbara Engles, “so it was an easy decision to come down to the Roadshow to sell it”. She was very excited when she was able to walk away with a cheque for over $2,100 for jewellery she was never going to wear anyway. Expert Elijah Gold explains, “We have no-

ticed a substantial increase in the amount of precious metals such as gold and silver coming to the Roadshow, which makes sense considering how high it’s currently trading at. He added, “The Roadshow is great because it puts money in people’s pockets, especially during such hard times. Lots of items that are just sitting around collecting dust in basements and jewellery boxes can be exchanged for money, on the spot!” At another Roadshow event, a woman, named Mira Kovalchek, walked in with a tin full of hundreds of old coins that were given to her as a young child by her grand-

father. She finally decided to come in to the Roadshow and see what he had given her. She was ecstatic to learn she had coins dating back to the late 1800’s, some of which were extremely rare. Roadshow consultant Perry Bruce explains “We had uncovered an 1871 Queen Victoria 50 Cent piece, valued at over $2,000!! She had a

nice assortment of coins that were not rare dates, but she was able to sell them for their silver content”. She explains, “I never would have thought that my old tin

of coins was worth so much! I can finally afford to renovate my kitchen”. Perry Bruce continued, “Canadian coins prior to 1967, and American coins prior to 1964 are all made with silver, and we have noticed a large increase of customers coming to the Roadshow with coins and cashing them in for their silver value”. Experts at the Roadshow will evaluate and examine your items, FREE OF CHARGE, as well as educate you on them. The Roadshow sees hundreds of people during a one week event, and they have been travelling across Canada to different cities and towns, searching for your forgotten treasures. Trains, dolls, toys, old advertising signs, pocket watches, porcelain and bisque dolls, pretty much everything can be

sold at the Roadshow. Any early edition Barbie’s are sought after by the Roadshow collectors, as well as a variety of Dinky Toys and Matchbox cars. Lionel Trains and a variety of tin toys can also fetch a price, especially if they are in their original box or in mint condition. If a collector is looking for one of your collectibles, they can always make an offer to buy it. A man brought in a 1950’s Marx Tin Toy Robot, in fairly good condition, still in its original box. They were able to locate

a collector for that specific toy within minutes, and that gentleman went home with over $700 for his Toy Robot and a few other small toys. So whether you have an old toy car, a broken gold chain, or a Barbie sitting in the closet, bring it down to the Roadshow, they will take a look at it for FREE and it could put money in your pocket!

See you at the roadshow!

21 Kanata Kourier-Standard - DECEMBER 15, 2011

File photo

The Ottawa fire department, paramedics and Ontario Provincial Police responded to a vehicle rollover on Dec. 9.

A woman was extricated from her vehicle after it rolled over on a Queensway on ramp in Kanata during the early morning hours of Friday, Dec. 9. The Ottawa fire department, paramedics and Ontario Provincial Police responded to the rollover around 2 a.m. on the Hwy 417 west bound on ramp at Terry Fox Drive. A witness called in the accident, said J.P. Trottier, spokesman for the paramedics. The witness tried to access the rolled-over vehicle but couldn’t get the door open. The female had to be extricated from the vehicle by the fire department. Firefighters had to pop the rear door on the driver’s side of the vehicle, clear away broken glass and slide her out on a backboard, said Marc Messier, spokesman for the fire department. The woman, believed to be in her 30s, was treated at the scene for a “minor head injury” by paramedics, said Trottier, but she refused transportation to hospital. The police are investigating.

Ottawa Police are warning women across the city, sex trade workers in particular, that they may be in danger after a pattern was identified in a series of homicides. Police Chief Vern White called for women in Ottawa to remain vigilant and take extra precautions in their daily routines during a press conference held at the Minwasshin Lodge. He said the pattern was identified by investigators looking at the murders of sex trade workers in the city. “In light of this, I am asking women, particularly those involved in the sex trade, to be vigilant and exercise good safety practices,” White said.

“Let me stress my message extends to all women.” White declined to comment on the homicides or identify any specific threats. Castille Troy, executive director of Minwaashin Lodge also declined to comment further on the warning, but said the lodge, which offers support for sex trade workers, was very concerned. Troy spoke directly to sex trade workers. “We know you are vulnerable and at risk,” Troy said, addressing the city’s sex trade workers. “Today, we feel we are in danger and in even greater risk of being harmed, seriously harmed or even murdered.” She stressed the need for these women to only approach their regu-

lar “dates,” yet remain suspicious of everyone. While White talked of Ottawa women, but said the advisory is not restricted to a geographical area. The chief also said police were unsure if a single individual was behind the deaths or whether it is a sign of a wider trend of violence against women.
