Board leaves no stone unturned Committees offers many options to reduce overcrowding in elementary schools blair.edwards@metroland.com

A community-based committee looking for solutions to overcrowding in Kanata north’s public schools is leaving no stone unturned, said Cathy Briggs, co-chair of the Kanata North Accommodation Review Committee.

Dozens of parents and community members turned out for the public meeting held at Earl of March Secondary School on Thursday, June 16. “The answer is not going to be just one concept,” said Briggs. “I have a feeling its going to be a combination.” After nearly half a year of discussion, the committee drew up a list of seven possible

scenarios to address the problem of overcrowding, including: • Do nothing and wait for construction of a new elementary and high school expected to be built near the corner of Terry Fox Drive and the yet-to-be realigned Goulbourn Forced Road. OVERCROWDING, see 4

It has arrived By Howaida Sorour The much anticipated – oh so green - M35 Infiniti luxury sedan has hit the streets of Canada and is on display at the Tony Graham Infiniti showroom in Bell’s Corners. A new venture for Infiniti, this luxury car is powered by the auto-maker’s all-new, in-housedesigned, full parallel hybrid powertrain. According to its specifications this sedan, comprises a 3.5-liter V-6 engine working together with a single electric motor and two clutches. “Its brilliant,” says Infiniti customer and local business owner Phil Nguyen. “I wasn’t expecting this level of innovation, which still retains the look and feel of a luxury sedan.” W h a t makes it so special is that unlike so many other hybrids on the market, this puppy, manages to combine an environmental conscience with pure luxury, seamlessly. “I couldn’t tell I was driving a hybrid – with most hybrids you can tell when the transition from gas to electric is being made – with this one you couldn’t,” says Darren Sproule, General Manager at Tony Graham Infiniti, with genuine wonder. In any hybrid the basic idea is for the car to switch to electric power as often as possible. Infiniti developed a technique that uses twin clutches to decouple the gas engine from the transmission and shut-off the engine completely. The result is a very smooth transition of power to the rear wheels. The M35 is a luxury sedan that can deliver 11.4L/100Km on city streets compared to Infiniti’s M37 V6, which does 6.1L/100 Km in city traffic.

“It’s extremely smooth with no lack of performance,” says Thomas O’Keefe, the Sales Manager at Tony Graham Infiniti. Sounds like they know how to make an excellent sales pitch – well they do, but they aren’t pulling the wool over anyone’s eyes when they talk about their product or promise to be “the best dealership you have ever done business with.” Their customers back them up enthusiastically. “They offer outstanding service, the whole experience has been fantastic,” says Jim Cooper, president of Canarm Limited, and three time Infiniti owner. Cooper says he’d buy his next car from them in a “heart beat.” The service is so good, and so reliable that he’ll just call them with his requirements and they’ll take care of the rest. “When you have people you can trust, why would you look anywhere else?” he asks. That ‘outstanding’ service isn’t just confined to their line of new cars either. “They treat you like royalty and a friend!” says Nguyen. “I’ve bought both pre-owned and new from them, and I was extremely thrilled when I bought a pre-owned car and they still gave me a hundred percent service.” It’s all in the small considerations, chuckles Sproule, like an Infiniti loaner every time a guest – not a customer – drops off their vehicle for service or the weekly car-wash offered to all Infiniti guests every Saturday morning.

A developer has announced plans to build 252 houses and stacked townhouses in Morgan’s Grant and Briarbrook beginning this fall. Minto Group Inc. presented plans for the three residential housing developments at a ward council meeting hosted by Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson at St. John’s Church in Briarbrook on Monday, June 20. The plans call for construction of: • 160 four-storey stacked townhouses on 780 March Road, near the Blue Heron Co-op and St. John’s Church, with the houses ready for occupancy in 2014. Minto is asking the city to change the property’s zoning from rural to medium-density residential. • 76 terrace homes and urban townhouses on a piece of vacant land west of the Shopper’s Drug Mart on Klondike Road, with construction to start this year. • 16 single family homes on Flamborough Way, where a warehouse is now located. Minto is asking the city to change the property’s zoning to allow for medium-density residential housing.

from Flamborough to Newcastle Avenue, following safety complaints from parents whose children walk to school at Kanata French public elementary school and Jack Donohue Public School. The City of Ottawa has two crossing guards stationed at Penrith and McBrien streets and Halton Terrace and Goward Drive. “It’s getting the kids to the crossing guard that’s the problem,” said Wilkinson. “We have people who drive the kids to school who are absolute maniacs.” But some of the homeowners along the affected roads at the public meeting said they didn’t want the city to build sidewalks if it meant losing several feet of their driveway and front property. “We can’t park our car because the lot size (will be) so small,” said one homeowner at the meeting. “What are you going to do buy me a shorter car,” said another resident, during a flurry of discussion about the sidewalk proposal. The homeowners could lose five to six feet of their front property.

Several hundred Briarbrook and Morgan’s Grant residents filled a room at St. John’s Church to listen to the development plans. “The biggest concern is the amount of traffic we’re going to be getting,” said a Kanata woman. “March Road is stopped from 7 a.m. on,” said another resident. “How do they expect people to get on?” Minto said it plans to conduct a traffic study of the affected roads. Right now, there’s no money in the city budget for road improvements for that area, such as the widening of Klondike Road to handle the influx of new traffic, said Wilkinson, adding that development fees would not pay for the necessary work. “(Council) just throw their hands up and say there’s no money,” said Wilkinson. “There’s definitely a safety issue,” she added. “I’m fighting to get it for the road.”

‘This one is outside the box’: committee chair OVERCROWDING, from 1 • Introduce dual-track English and French immersion programs at all Kanata north schools. • Shuffle student populations at schools by changing grade structures, for example, with some schools offering kindergarten to Grade 4 and others offering kindergarten to Grade 8. • Send junior and senior kindergarten students or grades 7 and 8 students to a satellite school, using a rented building. • Provide more portables at each of the schools. • Retrofit Earl of March and A.Y. Jackson Secondary School to accommodate grades 7 and 8 students. One of the solutions called for the school board to introduce an all-year school calendar, allowing students to attend school in different groups on a rotating schedule; or the schools could offer a split-day schedule, with half of the students attending the morning shift and the other half attending the afternoon shift. “This one is outside the box,” said Briggs, before introducing the option. The all-year school calendar and split school day schedule option was greeted with laughter from some of the parents. Some school boards in the United States use both options to deal with overcrowding, said Briggs. If the Ottawa Carleton District School Board wanted to introduce an all-year school calendar or split school days, it would have to request legislative changes from the provincial government and deal with the concerns of teachers unions. “I would urge you to keep (the allyear-school calendar and split-day schedule option) on there,” said one parent during the meeting. “I believe it shows the Ministry of Education how desperate we are.” KANATA SOUTH Earlier that night, the Ottawa public school board hosted another meeting investigating overcrowding in elementary schools in Kanata south. About 100 parents and community members attended the Kanata South Accommodation Review Commitee public meeting held at A.Y. Jackson. The committee offered a list of options: • Create community schools – in essence, allow children to attend the school nearest them – by making most schools in Kanata South dual track, English and French immersion

schools. • Adjust grade structures. • Realign the boundary between Earl of March and A.Y. Jackson so that students living south of Hwy. 417 will attend A.Y. Jackson and those living north of the highway will be directed to Earl of March. • Move junior kindergarten and part of the middle French immersion program from Katimavik Elementary to Castlefrank Elementary School.

I don’t have a lot of confidence in the process. • Jennifer Timlin Katimavik parent

Some of the parents at the meeting said they were frustrated with overcrowding at Kanata’s elementary schools. “I don’t have a lot of confidence in the process,” said Jennifer Timlin, who has a daughter attending one of the community’s most overcrowded schools, Katimavik Elementary. Timlin said she was frustrated when the board announced construction of a kindergarten to Grade 6 school in Stittsville. Meanwhile, children from Stittsville are bussed in to attend overcrowded Katimavik Elementary, she said. “It doesn’t make any sense to me,” she said. “None whatsoever.” Timlin also has a daughter who over the years has been forced to switch elementary schools because of overcrowding issues. The Grade 9 student may have to switch high schools if the board changes the high school boundary, said Timlin. OVERCROWDING Earlier this year, trustees approved short-term measures to address overcrowding at Stephen Leacock and Katimavik Elementary schools. The board agreed to move the kindergarten and French immersion pro-

grams at Stephen Leacock and Katimavik Elementary this September to reduce enrolment pressure. The measures are Band-aid solutions at best, said Kanata trustee Cathy Curry. But it gives the board some breathing room while it waits for the reports from the two accommodation review committees in December – a study of boundaries, programs, transportation and growth patterns – everything in the collective schoolbag. After a round of public consultation next winter, the board will deliberate and make a final decision in April, 2012. The Ontario Ministry of Education this week announced it will fund the construction of two French high schools in Bridlewood and on the Kanata Fernbank lands. Ottawa’s public board was left out in the cold because it doesn’t have any shovel-ready property to build schools, said Karyn Ostafichuk, manager of planning for the Ottawa public school board. “We’re certainly looking at alternatives to see what is out there,” she said. The problem of overcrowding at Kanata’s schools is the result of rapid development in the city’s west-end and the demand for French immersion programs, she said. Four schools are bursting at the seams in Kanata: Katimavik Elementary School (199.9 per cent above enrolment capacity), Jack Donohue (126 per cent) Roch Carrier (148.8 per cent) and Stephen Leacock (156.6 per cent). By 2014, Stephen Leacock will be at 173 per cent capacity, South March Public at 137 per cent, and W. Erskine Johnston at nearly 193 per cent. Those numbers don’t take into account the impact of the introduction of all-day kindergarten at all Ontario elementary schools by 2015. Anyone who would like to offer a suggestion or comment about the options provided by the Kanata North Accommodation Review Committee should email kanatanorthelemarc@ ocdsb.ca, and to the Kanata South Accommodation Review Committee by emailing kanatasouthelemarc@ ocdsb.ca. All submissions must be submitted by July 13.

WARD COUNCIL, from 3 Wilkinson said the land is city-owned property. The City of Ottawa has a policy, she added, to fill in missing links of sidewalks along neighbourhood streets when the municipality has the money. Wilkinson said she would recommend construction of the sidewalk along Flamborough and hold off on any decision on Halton. “I’ll take a good long hard look at it,” she said. WEST DISTRICT LIBRARY

tion of the new west district library in Beaverbrook. After considering several options, the library board has decided to move ahead with a two-storey addition to the existing branch, located in the Mlacak Centre. Wilkinson said the city will have to fundraise between $1 million to $3 million to help pay for about 500 square metres of additional space for the future west district library. The city has set the library’s budget at $10-million, any additional money needed for space or extras, such as technical programs, must find funding through fundraising, said Wilkinson.

I want to know where he stands.” El-Chantiry said he thought Cornell would make a good MPP. “I can say she will honour the progressive work we have done with Mr. Sterling in the years he was around,” said El-Chantiry. “I don’t think it was an endorsement as much as a statement of fact.” Cornell said she’s looking forward to engaging the public in the time leading up to the election, which is set to take place on Oct. 6. “Frankly, when I speak to people right now there’s a real feeling that it doesn’t matter who your local representative is, no ones listening to you anyway . . . I just find that so distressing,” said Cornell. “I’m pretty excited about the campaign and about engaging the community to care about who their local representative is.”

Megan Cornell stepped down as president of the Kanata Chamber of Commerce today and announced she is running for the Liberal nomination in the riding of Carleton-Mississippi Mills. Cornell said she was excited to declare her intention to run on Monday, June 20. “To me it is really about having a voice for our community that’s going to represent all aspects of our community,” said Cornell, who ran as the Liberal candidate in the riding of Carleton-Mississippi Mills in the 2007 provincial election. “There’s some really crucial items on the agenda for us in the next little awhile.” Cornell’s three main items to look at are health, education and the high-tech industry. “If we don’t have somebody in there . . .this is the core of what represents our community,” said Cornell about Kanata’s high-tech sector. “Our area just doesn’t have that spokesperson, that voice that puts it at the political table time and again.” Cornell wrote on her blog back in January that she would not be seeking the Liberal nomination for Carleton-MississippiMills, but a new post that went up today said “things changed since that time.” After Jack MacLaren was voted to be the Conservative representative, ousting veteran MPP Norm Sterling, Cornell made the decision to enter the political race. “It was a real game-changer,” she said of MacLaren’s nomination. “You can’t have a single issue politician representing such a diverse riding.” West Carleton Coun. Eli ElChantiry backed Cornell in a press release. “With what happened to Norm Sterling, we no longer have a progressive voice in Carleton-Mississippi Mills,” said El-Chantiry. “We need Megan Cornell to be the next MPP for this riding to continue the progress we’ve made in health and education over the last eight years.” El-Chantiry said he wants to know what platform MacLaren will be running with and if he’s willing to work with the city and area councillors. “Mr. Sterling, with the Progressive Conservatives, we managed to work with him throughout the years even though a lot of times we didn’t agree on the same politics,” said El-Chantiry. “It’s on Mr. MacLaren to prove to us that he is willing to work

Be a donor - save eight lives Imagine having the potential to save eight lives and enhance 75 more. It’s all possible by registering online as an organ and tissue donor. More than 1,500 Ontarians are on the list waiting for an organ transplant. Every three days, someone in this province dies while waiting for a life-saving transplant. Thousands more are waiting for a tissue transplant that could help enhance their lives. You can change that. All you have to do is take a few minutes out of your day to register as an organ and tissue donor online. Signed donor cards are no longer an acceptable option; the card may not be available when the information is needed and your wishes will go unknown. The online registry stores your information in a Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care database and shares your decision to donate with the Trillium Gift of Life Network, Ontario’s organ and tissue donation agency. When you register, you ensure your decision to donate will be carried out in the event of your death – donation is only an option after all life-

saving efforts have failed. Granted, death is a morbid subject – especially when it comes unexpectedly. But your organs and tissue won’t do any good for anyone when they’re six feet under. Corneas could help a woman see the world around her. A skin graft could help a burn victim heal. A new pair of lungs could give a child with cystic fibrosis the breath to carry on. A new heart could give a father the chance to watch his son grow up. Anyone can donate regardless of pre-existing medical conditions and lifestyle. You can also choose what to give. The doctors assess the organs and tissue and make the decision from there as to what’s viable. The only requirement is that you are 16 years of age or older. Don’t leave the burden of choice up to your loved ones. Register online at www.beadonor.ca, visit a ServiceOntario centre or download and mail in the Gift of Life consent form to become an organ and tissue donor. Save a life. Save eight lives.

Yet another good reason to head for the lake Next week the fighting will start – the people who want to go off to the cottage for Canada Day against the people who want to stay in town and see Will and Kate. There are other subgroups, the people who want to stay in town to see the jazz festival and the people who want to stay in town for the fireworks, but that’s quite a different matter. You might think this upcoming battle is a battle of the sexes – the women wanting to see the royal couple and the men wanting to go fix the dock – but that’s old-fashioned stereotyped thinking. It’s more complicated than that. Back in April there were an awful lot of people, both male and female, who got up at five in the morning to watch the royal wedding on TV. Around that time, I remarked casually to a group of like-minded people that it was crazy and perhaps even un-Canadian of the CBC to send Peter Mansbridge over to London to cover the wedding just three days before a Canadian federal election. Turns out that many people were less like-minded than I thought. There was much leaping to the defence of the CBC and defending of the historical importance of the

KANATA

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town royal wedding. This, of course, doesn’t mean I was wrong. Anyway, the whole argument will now start up again. Some people will say that the way to go about being a good Canadian on Canada Day is to go to a lake and do something with a canoe or a tree. In doing so we are honouring our ancestors and our heritage. Others will argue that the Crown is part of what makes Canada special and that we should salute it in person whenever the opportunity arises. Not all of these people are old codgers. Now, it’s true that the motorcade isn’t going to stop for them, nor will they be able to get close enough to salute, but it’s the thought that counts. It should also be noted that there is a

rapidly growing number of Canadians whose heritage includes neither lakes and canoes nor royal couples from England. If you’re in that group, you might be very confused by it all, and should maybe just hang out at the jazz festival, where neither God Save the Queen nor O Canada is likely to be played. Mind you, you might hear the CF-18s and the 21 guns. One of the reasons the monarchy has survived so long in this country is that people tend to be rather good-natured about it. It helps that most of our royal visitors in recent times have been rather pleasant and it is difficult even for a committed republican to direct the necessary amount of outrage against them. Will and Kate, too, seem quite nice. If you want to work up a case against a royal visit it is necessary to search for some other reason. The only one that springs to mind is that having a princess in our midst might encourage more of our Canadian little girls to want to be princesses. Feminists and other sensible people have been worrying about the princess phenomenon for some time now – parents dressing their daughters up

in frilly pink costumes, sometimes even with little crowns and tiaras. It is the result of a marketing ploy some people blame on the Disney empire. Whoever is at fault, it isn’t doing much to persuade our daughters to become doctors, engineers, soldiers, hockey players or any of the things they can be that don’t involve marrying princes. It’s unlikely that Kate, when she gets to Ottawa, will be wearing a crown or anything frilly and pink, but you can never be too careful, which is why heading for the lake isn’t such a bad idea. Everybody knows you can’t be a princess and climb a tree at the same time.

The Ministry of Education has given the green light to build two French-speaking high schools in Kanata south. The two high schools are among the 43 new schools and 30 additions to be built across Ontario over the next three years under a $650-million funding program. Education Minister Leona Dombrowsky announced funding for schools in Ottawa at Laurier-Carrière French Catholic elementary school in Nepean on Wednesday, June, 15. The money will also pay for a new French Catholic elementary school in Barrhaven. The minister was greeted with cheers from a class at Laurier Carrière after she announced money to build six additional classrooms at the Nepean elementary school. Chair of the French Catholic school board Diane Doré, said the money comes just in time. “We have really seen our numbers grow. We hope to have 20,000 students across the board by September,” she said. Bob Chiarelli, MPP for Ottawa-West Nepean said as Minister of Infrastructure he sees the benefits of new schools to the local economy. “This allows us to focus on achievements and better outcomes,” he said. This year, the work will begin on the 43 new schools — with another 30 receiving additions or retrofits. “Investing in our schools is critical to helping every child reach his or her potential and succeed,” Dombrowsky said. “Our government is committed to making the necessary investments and planning to ensure the future success of our children and grandchildren.” KANATA SCHOOLS

The French Catholic School Board of Eastern Ontario will build a high school on a 5.6 hectare piece of property on the Kanata Fernbank lands and the French Public School Board of Eastern Ontario will build a high school next to the newly-constructed Martin Lapointe French Elementary School in Bridlewood. Bernard Roy, director of education for

the central-east French Catholic school board, said his board expects to hit an enrolment of nearly 20,000 students this year. “We’re one of the fastest growing school boards in Ontario,” he said. More and more parents want their children to be bilingual, said Roy. Couple that with the inflow of Frenchspeaking Canadians into Ottawa’s west end and a pressure is created to build more French Catholic and public schools, he said. “I think more people are moving to the west-end because of high-tech and jobs,” he said. “If you build them they will come.” The board is now hiring an architect to draw up plans for the $19.7-million school, which will have a capacity for 739 students and offer programs for grades 7 to 12 students. “We know probably we’ll have more students,” said Roy. “We always plan our schools to have additions – we know our school is going to grow, is going to need more space.” The board is already planning to build another school in the Fernbank area. “We need schools and they’re always full,” said Roy. The school will open in September 2014. “It was very good news for the parents of Kanata,” said Roy. “They were asking for many, many years to have a high school in Kanata.” Francois Benoit, the director of education of the French public school board of Eastern Ontario, said he was very pleased with the funding announcement. The new French public school will house 500 students in grades 7 to 12. The board hasn’t set a timeline for construction of the French public high school. “We hope as soon as possible but I cannot tell you the date right now,” he said. Benoit said there is a growing demand for French-language schools in Ottawa’s west end. “DND is moving in the west end; you have the RCMP in (Barrhaven),” he said. “You have a lot of people coming from Montreal because of the technology. “They know the value of having two languages,” he said. “That’s why there’s a growing demand in Canada.” With files from Jennifer McIntosh and Emma Jackson

HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE CASH IN ON MODERN DAY GOLD RUSH! By Jason Delong

Got gold? Next week, visitors can cash in on antiques, collectibles, gold, silver, coins

STAFF WRITER Yesterday at the Country Inn & Suites, hundreds lined up to cash in antiques, collectibles, gold and jewelr y at the Treasure Hunters Roadshow. The free event is in Kanata all week, buying gold, silver, antiques and collectibles. One visitor I spoke with yesterday said, “It’s unbelievable, I brought in some old coins that had been in a little cigar box for years and some old herringbone necklaces—in less than fifteen minutes I left with a check for $700. That stuff has been in my jewelr y box and dresser for at least 20 years.” Another gentleman brought in an old Fender guitar his father had bought years ago. The man said,

Above—Roadshow specialist, Tony Enright, talks with a family about the gold jewelr y that they brought in. “Dad had less than fifty bucks in that guitar.” The Roadshow specialist that assisted him made a few phone calls and a veterinarian in Seattle, Washington bought the guitar for $5,700.00. The seller continued, “I got another $150.00 for a broken necklace and an old class ring. It’s not every day that someone comes to town bringing six thousand dollars with your name on it.” Jeff Parsons, President of the Treasure Hunters Roadshow, commented, “Lots of people have items that they know are valuable but just don’t know where to sell them. Old toys, trains, swords, guitars, pocket watches or jewelry is valuable to collectors. These collectors are willing to pay big money for those items that they are looking for.” This week’s Roadshow is the best place to get connected with those collectors. The process is free and anyone can bring items down to the event. If the Roadshow specialists find items that their collectors are interested in, offers will be made to purchase them. About 80% of the guests that attend the show end up selling one or more

More than 100 seniors gathered at the Kanata Seniors’ Centre to celebrate Canada Day two weeks early on Thursday, June 16. Almost everyone was decked out in white and red, with Canadian pins, hats, flags and adornments.

John Kern, Captain Canada himself, was dressed in red and white, complete with a maple leaf hat, remnants from when he worked in the Ottawa tourism industry, he said. Tables of people competed against each other to answer challenging Canadian history trivia, such as which prime minister held the shortest and longest

Members wonder whether they should sell current O-Trains

laura.mueller@metroland.com

A proposal to expand O-Train service during a meeting of the city’s transit commission on June 15 turned into a debate over the merits of keeping the trains the city already owns. That idea was planted by David Jeanes, the president of advocacy group Transport Action Canada, who told commissioners to support the expansion – but rethink the need to sell the trains. The expansion is based on the purchase of six new dieselpowered trains to increase the level of service on the existing O-Train route between Bayview and Greenboro stations. The expansion, which the transit commission approved on June 15, also includes the construction of two passing tracks. City council will have the final vote on the expansion. Along with purchasing new trains, the plan presented by city staff included selling the three trains that are currently in use at some point in the future, likely in 2013, for around $3 million. “Three trains we have are worth more to us in the future than the $3 million we may be

able to get from them in the future,” Jeanes said. Some members of the transit commission were surprised to hear that VIA Rail is successfully restoring trains from the 1950s and ’80s to be used for their heavy rail lines. Either way, the expansion is “desperately needed,” Jeanes said. The cost of keeping the existing trains in service would be around $5.8 million, Mercier said. The total cost of the project is $59 million, which would be financed through debt, and that number would go up by $5.8 million if the city decided to keep the trains, Mercier said. Construction on the passing tracks would be done by 2013, when much of the LRT construction gets underway. The O-Train expansion is geared at reducing the pressure on Hurdman Station as construction on the city’s light-rail transit line gets underway. The improvements will cut bus traffic at Hurdman Station by six per cent. Right now, that station sees up to 200 buses at the same time during peak periods, putting it at or near its maximum capacity, Mercier said, adding there are four firms interested in bidding on the contract to provide the new trains. A report on the possible further expansion of the O-Train line south to Leitrim will be coming to the transit commission in the fall.

THE OTTAWA HOSPITAL FOUNDATION In October 2009, Rhea Ferguson’s father, Bill, was

diagnosed with esophageal gastric cancer at age 59. After successfully undergoing treatment at The Ottawa Hospital Cancer Centre, the family received some devastating news – the cancer was back, and this time, it was inoperable. Ferguson also knows more about the need for cancer research than the average person. She recently completed her Master’s degree in cancer epidemiology at McGill University, has worked with cancer researcher Dr. John Bell at The Ottawa Hospital Research Institute (OHRI) and is currently working as a database manager for the Hospital’s ovarian cancer bank. “Cancer research has always been a big passion for me,” said the 26-year-old Ottawa native. “There’s a history of cancer in my family. I lost all my grandparents to it.”

Ferguson, who is riding as a member of the Cancer Trailblazers, the OHRI Cancer Centre team, said she reached her fundraising goal of $1,500 in just two weeks. “People are so generous,” she said. “Everyone knows someone who is affected by the disease. “It would be amazing to have another treatment option that is… not so hard on the body,” she said. “The research needs to continue.” With her father’s health rapidly declining, she said she will be thinking about him when she does the ride on Sept. 10. “I’m hoping to be able to tell him about it,” she said. To support Rhea Ferguson’s ride, or to join her mother, Sheila Ferguson, as a volunteer, visit www.ridetherideau.ca

Looking for a way to make a difference, she learned about Ride the Rideau, a 100 km cycling fundraiser from Ottawa to Merrickville to support cancer research at The Ottawa Hospital, and immediately signed up. “It’s raising money for where I work, and it’s going to where my dad was treated,” she said. “It was a perfect fit.” Ferguson’s mother, Sheila, also got on board as a Ride the Rideau volunteer.

Ride the Rideau participant Rhea Ferguson with her parents, Sheila and Bill.

“My mom and I are involved because my dad is dying of cancer,” she said. “We want to do something for him. It’s a personal cause for both of us.”

New summer bus schedule OC TRANSPO On Sunday, June 26, the new bus summer schedule takes effect and several improvements to the transit system will be introduced. New summer schedules will be reduced to reflect the lower demand for service during the summer vacation period. School routes will be suspended until the fall, and minor schedule reductions will be made to mainline and peak period routes. Customers should also take note of the following improvements: • Route 94 will have two new early morning trips added from Tunney’s Pasture to Orleans, and an additional early trip from Orleans to Tunney’s Pasture. These new trips will improve service for early morning commuters. • In Barrhaven, the Transitway between Strandherd and Marketplace stations will be completed, which will ensure that Routes 95, 170 and 171 offer a faster travel time, as they will no longer follow a detour. Further, buses will return to the regular station platform stop at Strandherd Station. New printed timetables are available at online at octranspo.com, at OC Transpo sales centres, through the mail or by calling 613-741-4390. For automated bus arrival information, customers can call 613-560-1000 plus their four-digit bus stop number. For more information and travel planning, visit octranspo.com or call 613-741-4390.

‘All options are on the table’: environment committee chair LAURA MUELLER laura.mueller@metroland.com

Following a decision to change how Ottawa residents’ garbage is collected, the city is now looking to create a waste master plan for the next three decades. The city already has “master plans” for areas such as transportation, cycling and parks, so why not garbage and recycling, asked environment committee chair Maria McRae. A study will take 18 months to complete and the city will have a municipal waste master plan in place by 2014, said Sally McIntyre, the city’s manager of environmental programs. She gave the environment committee a brief overview of the plan on June 16, but more detail will be coming in the fall. The process is kicking off this week as the city begins to meet with small, targeted groups to address unique concerns.

The process is kicking off this week as the city begins to meet with small, targeted groups to address unique concerns. The city really wants to engage ths public in these discussions, McIntyre said, and city staff will be co-ordinating with other departments to spread information in less-traditional venues such as fun fairs. By spring, the study should yield some idea of the policies and programs the city will need to adopt in order to achieve those goals. A plan to implement those policies would be in place by the fall of 2012, McIntyre said. All options are on the table, McIntyre told city councillors. Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley wanted to know if the STARTING AT study could include a “serious discussion” about the option of incinerating garbage. Stittsville Coun. Shad Qadri asked that the study look at his suggestion from a few years ago about including an automated STARTING AT waste that would be built into the underground infrastructure of new communities in order 39”/54”/60” to whisk garbage away without trucks. “On the record, everything is on the table,” McRae promised.

will be included in those initial discussions, McIntyre said. A broader consultation will get underway in the fall, when the city will hash out the draft goals of the plan.

Social media can land you a job KRISTY WALLACE

Kristy Wallace photo

Len Fardella, president and owner of the Peter’s New Jobs website, gave a talk to a group of people at the Pinecrest-Queensway Community Health Centre’s employment services on how to get a job using social media. Fardella added that there’s even a space for users to in ject some of their personality and where they can highlight volunteer experience. “You should figure out what makes you special and what makes you different,” he said. Twitter, he said, is another important social media tool that people can use in landing their next job interview. While there is a lot of stuff on Twitter that might not be valuable, job seekers can follow relevant people to stay current in their field. “You get to choose who you talk with and who you follow,” Fardella said, adding that all these social media websites can be beneficial to someone’s career. “(These websites) encourage people to take ownership of their careers. You can be the captain of your ship.” 356908

LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and Google aren’t just websites where you connect with friends – they’re also forms of social media that can land people job interviews in their fields. “Looking for jobs on the Internet is a waste of time. Limited people find jobs on the Internet,” said Len Fardella, president and owner of the Peter’s New Jobs website, who was at the Pinecrest-Queensway Community Health Centre’s employment services branch on June 9 to give a presentation called Google and You. The focus of his talk was to help close to 40 people who showed up to the event land job interviews using social media. The first major website Fardella discussed was Google, and how important it is for job seekers to have information on themselves on the first page. “If you’re a job seeker, you want to own the first page of Google,” Fardella said, adding that about 80 per cent of employers will Google your name if they’re thinking of interviewing you. “Their biggest fear is hiring the wrong person,” he said. “If the wrong person is in a company, it’s a nightmare.” He said having yourself on the first page of Google allows for you to stand out from competition – which is critical since all resumes can start to look the same. While searching for a job, Fardella said it’s also important to brand yourself. Branding, he said, has made successes of politicians like President Barack Obama and even Oprah Winfrey. “Oprah isn’t an expert in anything, but she branded herself,” he said. “We have a relationship with these people, so when a hiring manager looks you up, they’re going to create a relationship with you.” Fardella also used the example of Starbucks coffee versus Tim Horton’s coffee. “At the end of the day, it’s two cups of coffee that are pretty close in taste,” he said. “But they do all this branding to perceive a value.” He added that LinkedIn, a website that allows people to upload their resumes and make professional connections, is also key in finding a job. “If you’re looking for an office-based role and you don’t have a good LinkedIn profile, you’re screwed,” Fardella said. “You’re putting yourself at a severe disadvantage.” He said the website has more than 100 million users and more than 1 million companies, and is designed to let employers go through your credentials quickly.

Wildlife refuge asks for public support JESSICA CUNHA jessica.cunha@metroland.com

Lynne Rowe has hit a financial snag in her plans to open a wildlife refuge in western Ottawa. The founder of the Constance Creek Wildlife Foundation said she hasn’t received enough support from the community to fund the wildlife refuge. When she applies for funding grants, many of the applications ask for a list of volunteers and the amount of financial support collected from community donations. “If they see we aren’t sustainable, you won’t get the funding,” she said. She said she’s looking to the residents of Ottawa to let her know that a wildlife refuge for small mammals and deer is something they want to see in their city. “I’m looking for ways the community will let me know they’re in,” said Rowe, who began building the wildlife refuge last year on her property in Dunrobin, which also houses a farm animal sanctuary. Two summers ago a person brought an orphaned fawn to her farm and the closest place that could take it in was in Napanee, Ont., she said. That spurred her to take action and begin to construct a wildlife centre. Now, Rowe is facing the possibility of having to put her dream aside – at

least for the time being. “This is the hard stage,” she said. “We need people to believe in it to make it true.” She said if she can’t get it up and running this year she’ll have to take a step back and try again sometime in the future. “I will just bide my time. I’ll scale it down,” she said. “It’s taken its toll on me financially and emotionally.” Deborah Hass, the executive director of the Wild Bird Care Centre in Nepean said patience and determination are two needed factors when starting a wildlife refuge. “It’s hard and it is discouraging,” said Hass, who came onboard with the bird refuge in 1987, six years after the centre was first established. “It sometimes feels like one step forward and three steps back.” Hass said it took Kathy Nihei, the founder, 11 years to move the Wild Bird Care Centre out of her home and into its current property. “You start very small,” said Hass, adding a five-year timeframe is not enough to become fully functional. “It is a slow process.” She said it can be hard as a not-forprofit running solely on community donations with no government support – there is never enough funding. “I know people give what they can,” she said. “I know they’re feeling the pinch.” She said the most important thing to do when starting a wildlife refuge is to build up volunteer and resource support; from labourers, to lawyers, to computer technicians and consultants to rely on when questions arise. “It’s slow to build up – absolutely,” said Hass. ENCLOSURES Rowe has managed to finish a number of projects for the refuge, including erecting a large fence along the back of her house and acquiring cages that will be used to house raccoons. There is still plenty to do though, she said, before the wildlife refuge is approved by the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources. Rowe is hosting an activity day on Sunday, June 26, at 2494 Dunrobin Rd., where people who are interested in vol-

Lynne Rowe, pictured with rescued pig Wilbur, is the founder of the Constance Creek Wildlife Refuge. The centre has received some funding to help get the property ready to receive injured and abandoned wildlife, but Rowe can’t go any further without the backing of the community.

unteering, donating or getting more information can visit her property and look around. “This is so they can actually see the hard-working people behind this,” said Rowe, who added there is no government funding for the refuge. “We’re really happy to take in high school students and give them their (community service) hours.” The CCWR is holding a raffle where people can win a Robert Bateman print “Awesome Land - American Elk” or a set of opal and diamond earrings and a necklace. The tickets are $10 each. As well, for people who love to shop online they have the opportunity to sign up for iGive.com for free where up to 26 per cent of each online purchase goes to the refuge. “Taking care of animals is very resource intensive,” said Rowe, adding she loves what she does but she can’t afford to keep using money out of her own pocket. The CCWR website has a list of ways people can help, either by donating items, services or funds. Visit www. ccwr.ca for more information.

Video chat allows teen with cancer to train Jim Vellan is a very active, focused and bright 16-year-old. He is an A student at Holy Trinity Catholic High School and plays the baritone horn and bass guitar in the school’s Concert and Rhythm and Blues Bands. In 2008, he joined 872 Kanata Kiwanis Air Cadet Squadron and became involved with the band, ground school and biathlon team on top of regular cadet activities. That all changed in the fall of 2010, when Jim began to experience severe abdominal pain. After a lengthy investigation, he was diagnosed with Burkitt’s lymphoma, a very rare and extremely fast growing cancer. Life for Jim and his family was instantly put on hold while they dealt with the unthinkable. Cadets and staff at 872 Squadron were saddened by Flight Corporal (Flt.-Cpl.) Vellan’s diagnosis and his absence from cadets. His many cadet friends made cards and some visited him at the hospital and at home when possible. Maj. Diana Dixon, Commanding Officer of 872 Squadron, and her Deputy CO, Capt. Dave Burniston, were talking one evening about Vellan’s loss of a training year due to his illness,

and Skype, a computer software which allows communication via the internet. “We basically had this eureka moment that we could have him there virtually,” said Dixon. Pat and Paul Vellan, Jim’s parents, agreed to try it out and see if it would work. Every Wednesday night that he is able, he links in to 872 Squadron from 6:45 to 9 p.m. and joins in the lessons for that week, either from his home or the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO). At 872’s end, he can see the instructor and chalkboard and can hear everything that goes on. Most weeks his image is projected at the front of the class so that all the cadets can see him as well. The system has not only helped raise Jim’s spirits immensely by giving him something to look forward to every week and allowing him to continue his training, but it has also strengthened the squadron and reinforced the camaraderie of the cadets. ABLE TO PASS At the beginning of the experiment, the plan was only to keep Jim engaged and to take his mind off his illness. But soon after it became clear that it would be possible for him to complete enough of his training to finish

the level and continue on with his friends when he returns. “He can join in all lessons that are not physical in nature.,” said Dixon. “We are adapting some of the physical ones like drill.” Recently, he worked with a few other cadets at his home to prepare the night exercise for a bush weekend. Jim has now completed eight rounds of chemotherapy and will be having another MRI scan in a few weeks to look for any new growth. In the meantime, he is allowed to take short rides on his bike and see his friends. He recently received an Academic Perseverance Award from Holy Trinity and was nominated and received an honourable mention for a Spirit of the Capital Award by Child and Youth Friendly Ottawa. When Jim returns to cadets he hopes to achieve the Power Pilot Scholarship, a summer camp where cadets earn their private pilot’s license, and he plans to study aerospace engineering after high school. The cadets of 872 Squadron were pleased that Jim felt well enough to attend the annual Ceremonial Review on May 28, at the Richmond Arena. Visit our website www. 872-squadron-rcac.ca for information on becoming an 872 Air Cadet.

We know with the support of our communities, we can reach this target – no problem. The first year, we raised $5000 and were able to double it the second year to $10, 000. We thought why not aim to double the number again!” Therien is a huge supporter of CHEO and has been raising money for the charity over a number of years. Hana said: “Our owner, Randy Cooligan has personal experience with the amazing people at CHEO. Both his daughters have been diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis and both are still quite young. Needless to say this is a cause that is very close to his heart.”

Over 600 people turned out for the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay For Life event in Kanata, held at the Walter Baker Park on June 17 and 18. Around 60 teams registered for the 12hour walk around the track, from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m., with over $140,000 raised. A large number of survivors walked the very first lap of the evening to cel-

ebrate hard-fought victories against the disease. Luminaries, paper bags with names of those who have passed away and candles inside, filled the spaces next to the pathway the participants walked, a glowing reminder of those who lost the fight. Claire Wise, a mother of two, and her team walked under the name of Mom’s For Life, dressed up in fairy wings, halos and glitter.

Wise lost her mother after a brief 10week battle with kidney cancer. “Our hope is that our kids can grow up with their mom’s,” said Wise about her team name. Her two daughters, Payton, 5, and Brynn, 3, were also dressed up and walked the first lap of the relay with the team.

Claire Wise’s mother passed away from kidney cancer after a brief 10-week battle. Her team, Mom’s For Life, was created in the hope that their kids won’t lose their moms to cancer, she said. With Wise are her daughters, Payton, 5, and Brynn, 3.

Participants walk the track, which was lined with luminaries remembering those who passed away. The event ran overnight, from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m., June 17 and 18.

Library now offers birthday parties OTTAWA PUBLIC LIBRARY The Ottawa Public Library (OPL) is taking a new and innovative step in launching a pilot project to host children’s birthday parties, starting on June 1. The project, which will run until May 2012, will see OPL become the first large public library in North America to offer birthday parties for children. The library sees the idea as an innovative way to maximize library resources and as a potential source of future revenue. “We’re giving the community something new,” said Jane Venus, manager of

children and teen services at OPL. Three OPL branches, Ruth E. Dickinson, Orleans and Greenboro, have been chosen as host sites for the initial project. “After speaking to many parents about this idea and receiving significant positive support, I was pleased to bring the idea to the OPL board and management for consideration,” said Jan Harder, chair of the OPL board. “The kids are going to love it.” For more information, please visit www.BiblioOttawaLibrary.ca or call InfoService at 613-580-2940.

It’s been quite the year for west-end indie-rockers Autumn’s Canon. The five-piece band ended 2010 with a $5,000 cheque after winning Live 88.5 radio station’s Big Money Shot contest and then signed a management deal shortly thereafter to help guide them. Now the group will be playing its biggest show to date: an afternoon slot on the main stage at Bluesfest Sunday, July 10. “We’re ramped about it,” Nepeanbased guitarist Nick Beaton said. “Most of us being local, we’re certainly know what the exposure that Bluesfest can do for you. We’re super excited.” Now they’ll be playing a 45-minute set at the Ottawa music festival comprised of some new material and songs from their five-track, self-titled EP. It was recorded at Pebble Studios in Barrhaven and released shortly after winning the Big Money Shot. A very raw-sounding compilation, aimed at “capturing the performance of the tracks in the studio,” what you hear is what you get from Autumn’s Canon. “We do pride ourselves in being an off-the-floor, performance-style group,” Beaton said. “We just focus on getting some good solid takes and giving people an off-the-floor experience. We wanted that to come across on the disc.” It’s been quite the transition from the band’s humble beginnings where they played acoustic songs on patios of local bars two summers ago. Autumn’s Canon was formed when Shaun Francisco headed east from Maple Ridge, B.C. to Toronto to compete on Canadian Idol after the passing of his mother.

After finishing in the top 25, Francisco continued eastward to Ottawa where he met Barrhaven native Mike Hogg – the band’s current drummer – while the pair worked at a music store. Hogg got in touch with Beaton, an old high-school acquaintance, and convinced him to play guitar. Beaton knew Kanata native Marty Sobb, keys player and guitarist, and then Metcalfe’s Mark Laforest answered the band’s ads for a bassist. But it’s Francisco who sparks the band’s creativity, since most of the lyrics written by him are inspired by his mother’s death. “He’s a campfire type guy with an acoustic guitar and a melody,” Beaton said. “The majority of the stuff, he comes to with an acoustic and the band gets to put its touches on it. We like to think it’s a team effort but the idea spawns from Shaun putting the original idea together.” Beaton describes the group’s music as “Canadiana-style rock,” drawing from artists like Tom Petty, Matt Mays, and Kings of Leon for inspiration. But the band said it is open to change and wants to use big shows like Bluesfest and North By Northeast in Toronto on June 18 to round out its sound. The hope is to hit the recording studio in at the end of the summer so that a full-length album will be released next spring. “We’re pretty big on the whole thought that you only get one chance to make a first impression with an album,” Hogg said. “So the first, full-length album will come out under the guidance of our management team and it’ll be something we put a lot of time and effort into.”

Dharma Developments second new home community

Orville Station is set to be located at the former site of the Canadian Pacific Stittsville Railway Station. This is a mixed-use project in which the residential phase of the development consists of 36 condominium suites in the heart of Stittsville Village. All models are priced starting from the mid $200’s. These stylish one bedroom lofts and two bedroom suites are ideal for home buyers looking for a low-maintenance, modern lifestyle in a healthy environment. Perhaps some of the most compelling aspects of this development are the location – in Stittsville because of the nature of this quaint village, but also the goals of the developer which include building a community for people that is focused on people. Providing those from different socialeconomic status either the opportunity to buy their first home in Stittsville or a home to down-size into and allow them stay in the community they love. The development was designed to make the best use of the land available on the site, in order to provide home owners with green space to admire

and enjoy; something that most condominium communities don’t provide. To give people a clean, healthy environment where they can breathe easy. To bring more people into the community without taking too much land to do it, help revitalize the south end of Stittsville Main Street and support the new and old businesses in the immediate vicinity. To take advantage of the public transit that is available right outside the front doors of Orville Station. Dharma is one step closer to bringing this innovative and important community to Stittsville. With foundation complete for the first phase and phase two selling, It also provides an example for other developers and the greater City of Ottawa to embrace sustainable development. With less and less land becoming available to developers at city limits to build homes, it is more important than ever to build consciously and responsibly within city limits. Building homes that fit within the existing community promote health, community growth and grow tax revenue for the city.

Dr. Bruce G. Firestone, a broker at Partners Advantage GMAC and Professor at Ottawa University is a proponent of this type of development and has shown support for Orville Station citing that we need to “build cities for people; cars are an important consideration, but they should be a lower priority.” He also thinks that if density in a neighbourhood increases, so should the property values of the surrounding homes as it brings more people to live, work and shop in the area. This increases demand because more people will want to live and work in the area and so pricing should increase as well.” This movement towards sustainable development of quality homes and maximized use of land helps our natural environment and maintains or improves the health of people within communities. We will see benefits for years to come – better health preservation which could lower impacts on the healthcare system, increased value in home investments, lower energy consumption and greater sense of community.

Smart Move. Smart Home.

Waste Management of Canada Corporation Environmental Assessment for a New Landfill Footprint at the West Carleton Environmental Centre Existing Conditions & Evaluation Criteria Available July 4th The Project Waste Management of Canada Corporation (WM) is undertaking an Environmental Assessment (EA) seeking approval for a new landfill footprint at the existing Ottawa Waste Management Facility (Ottawa WMF). The new landfill footprint will be one component of the proposed West Carleton Environmental Centre (WCEC), an integrated waste management facility that will include: • A new landfill footprint for disposal of residual waste materials; • Waste diversion and recycling operations; • Composting operations; • Renewable energy facilities; and, • Recreational lands for community uses. The Environmental Assessment The new landfill footprint is the only component of the WCEC that requires EA approval under the Environmental Assessment Act (EAA). The proposed location of the WCEC and the new landfill footprint component is within the City of Ottawa in the area shown on the adjacent map. The purpose of the EA is to study the potential environmental effects (positive or negative) of the proposed new landfill footprint. Key components of an EA include consultation with government agencies and the public; consideration and evaluation of alternatives; and, the management of potential environmental effects. Conducting an EA promotes good environmental planning before decisions are made about a proposal. Get Involved In Phase I and Phase II of the EA Process, the public was consulted regarding existing conditions, evaluation methodology, and evaluation criteria and indicators. The following reports will be available for public review beginning July 4th: • Existing Conditions and • Evaluation Methodology, Criteria, and Indicators. These reports can be accessed in two ways: • Electronic versions are available under the “Resources” tab on the project website (http://wcec.wm.com) and • A hard copy version is available for in-person viewing at the WM Ottawa Hauling Office – 254 Westbrook Road. Those wanting to review the materials in person are asked to contact one of the individuals noted below to arrange for a time to view the materials. Open Houses will be scheduled to take place in September to provide a summary of the existing environmental conditions; present the methodology for the comparative evaluation of the proposed alternative new landfill footprints; and to identify the preferred new landfill footprint. Notification of specific dates, times and locations for the Open Houses will be provided to the public through advertisement, direct mail, and email, as done previously for other Open Houses in the EA Process. Please check the project website for updates regarding the public consultation for the EA process. Have Your Say As always, we welcome you to submit your written comments in person, to the project website (http://wcec.wm.com), or via mail, email or fax to the coordinates below.

Dangerous terrain, fighting fear central in The Drop Kanata author pens mystery novel for teens JESSICA CUNHA jessica.cunha@metroland.com

A Glen Cairn author has published his first young adult novel, The Drop. Four backcountry patrol hopefuls face a series of challenges in remote and often dangerous terrain, confronting their fears in Jeff Ross’s The Drop. The teens try to solve the mystery about how a snowboarder vying for the position disappears seemingly out of nowhere on a mountain range in British Columbia. His first publication with Orca Book Publishers, Ross tells the fast-paced story of Alex and three other teens vying for a position as backcountry patrollers, an elite group of snowboards who patrol the un-groomed and remote slopes of BC. The young hopefuls run into trouble when one of their own disappears overnight. “I didn’t really know what sort of mystery it was going to be,” said Ross, who teaches scriptwriting for television and animation at Algonquin College. “I didn’t really plan it.” The book is one of a number of short novels in the Orca Sport series, which is geared towards reluctant middle and high school readers – all with a sport theme. “It makes it a lot easier,” said Ross about writing a young adult novel. “It’s not easy to write but it’s easy to change to that style.” The books are fast-paced, with a bare-bones narrative. “It was changing it (the writing) to the basics of what was going to happen,” said Ross, who’s been snowboarding since he was 16. “Keep it moving.” With two more Orca Sport novels set for release, the skateboard story Power Slide in September, and the surfing book Dawn Patrol in May 2012, Ross said he enjoyed penning the tales. “I guess I’m still pretty immature,” said the 38-year-old dad of two. “I’ve gone skateboarding twice today.”

Glen Cairn author Jeff Ross released his first novel The Drop, a snowboarding mystery, last month. ‘IT’S WHAT I DO’ Ross has published around 30 short stories and written a number of adult literary novels. After joining the Capital Crime Writers Association and writing his Orca novels, he said he’s planning on sticking with the crime genre for young adults. “You can do anything and you can do whatever you want and it’s accepted,” said Ross, who’s been writing since he was 19. “It’s what I do; I write.” He said crime novels are a far cry from literary pieces but he enjoys the structure that come with the field “It gives you the plot in some ways. It gives you the structure,” said Ross, who has lived in Glen Cairn now for two years. “I’m going to stick to writing young adult novels.”

Musical acts Go Long for Canada Day in Kanata JESSICA CUNHA jessica.cunha@metroland.com

Local band Go Long (!) is looking to have fun at this year’s Canada Day in Kanata celebration at Walter Baker Park. “We just try to have a good time,” said lead guitarist Lucas Haneman, who lives in Katimavik. Haneman, who has played with Eppiphane and the Lucas Haneman and Elyssa Mahoney band in past Canada Day in Kanata events, is joined by Danielle Allard in his newest band, Go Long (!). “I’ve been lucky to be back all the time,” said Haneman, who also plays the mandolin and sings backup vocals. The band plays unconventional music, which Haneman described as “folk-comedy,” taking well-known tunes or funny songs and turning them into acoustic ballads as well as writing their own material. “I think it’s a real mixture of extremely serious and extremely ridiculous (music),” he said.

“That’s why it’s fun what we do,” said Allard, adding their show is family friendly. “It’s fun to see the kids dancing around.” Allard, a Carp native now living in Morgan’s Grant, and Haneman will celebrate their one-year anniversary as a musical group three days after Canada Day. They are looking forward to the July 1 festivities and the other bands they’ll be playing alongside during the evening. “The bands that we’re playing with are extraordinary musicians,” said Allard, who sings lead vocals and plays rhythm guitar and the ukulele. “We’re excited.” Both Haneman and Allard enjoy the Kanata event; Haneman said he has early childhood memories of going on rides at the fair ground, and Allard worked as an enchanted princess over the last four years. Gigs have picked up for the band since the new year, including shows at the Great Canadian Cabin, Maverick’s and The

Heart and Crown. “We’ve got a lot of shows all the time,” said Allard. The duo is planning on recording an album over the summer, with a possible release set for the fall, said Allard. “We’re excited to get something together,” said Haneman. Go Long (!) is set to perform at 5:15 p.m. at the Canada Day in Kanata event on the Urbandale Stage, followed by Open Sky, Plush Garden and headliner Sloan. Haneman and Allard are keeping hush on their set list though. “We don’t want to give it away,” said Haneman. Derek Hill photo

Compassion in the service of care, Jamie MacDougall and the Order of Canada

Jamie MacDougall is the founder and Director of The Ottawa Hospital’s Institute for Rehabilitation Research and Development. He grew up in Overbrook, a brisk run from the General Campus. He went to high school at Lisgar, beside City Hall. His commitment to Ottawa is obvious. It is his commitment to Canada’s Deaf and persons with disability that led to his investiture in the Oder of Canada, on May 27. “You immediately think of all the people that made it possible, especially those with disabilities who inspired me. It is validation for thousands of people,” says MacDougall of the honour. Deafness and disability is personal for MacDougall. His parents, Peter and Gladys, were both deaf. His daughter, Paige, suffered a serious head injury at age 17, bringing his awareness of disabilities even closer to home. “People with disabilities have greater potential than we realize,” says MacDougall. “They have to overcome a lot of stereotypes…Just like everyone else, they aspire to realize their full potential.” Rusty Wendt, the head Carleton University’s Department of Psychology, understood this calling early on, convincing McDougall to take a summer job working with deaf parents seeking better means to communicate with their hearing children.

MacDougall left Carleton for McGill, getting his Masters and PhD in Clinical Psychology, studying the psychological impact of sensory deprivation and the link between deafness and literacy. Moving to Newfoundland’s Memorial University, he studied the impact of resettlement on cognitive development in children. From there, he went on to Rochester New York’s National Technical Institute for the Deaf. Then, back to McGill, where he spent 40 years teaching in the area of deafness and disability, and lead the Mackay Centre for Deaf and Disabled Children. His research is rooted in the everyday challenges faced by the Deaf and persons with disability. “Whether its children or adults,” says MacDougall, “I’ve been touched by the courage of extraordinary people.” Those people, in turn, have enabled valuable research. “The strength of clinically driven research is that it is both practical and sophisticated because of the problems it allows us to explore”. During one particularly complex case with a deaf Inuk in Nunavut who was said to have no language, MacDougall discovered the Inuit had their own sign language – Inuit Sign Language. His ability to extend clinical work beyond the hospital into the real world sets MacDougall apart. Working with advocacy groups such as the Canadian Hearing Society and the Canadian Association of the Deaf, he fought to ensure people with disabilities enjoy the full protection of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. 475977

His example brings The Ottawa Hospital a step closer to its vision of providing each patient with the world class care, exceptional service and compassion we would want for our loved ones.

You left peaceful memories, Your love is still our guide And though we cannot see you, You are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, And nothing seems the same, But as God calls us one by one, The chain will link again. May the winds of love blow softly, And whisper for you to hear, That we still love you dearly, And wish that you were here We hold you close within our hearts, And there you will remain, To walk beside us all our lives, Until we meet again. We share so many memories, Of which you had a part, And we will keep them always, Treasured in our hearts.

LAURA MUELLER laura.mueller@metroland.com

OC Transpo riders will be tapping a PRESTO card instead of showing a pass starting next spring. The transit authority outlined a detailed schedule for when Ottawa transit users will see the long-awaited “smart card” introduced during a city transit commission meeting on June 15. Six years after talk of the project began at city hall, riders will be able to buy their pass or top up their card online (or in person or over the phone) and swipe or tap it in front of a card reader as they board the bus (it will even work from inside a purse). Simplicity and convenience are key for both riders and the transit authority, said Alain Mercier, the head of OC Transpo. “It makes our lives a little easier,” Mercier said of OC Transpo’s operations, while at the same time making it easier for regular riders to pay their fare. But a day pass for tourists would still be a couple years off, Mercier said, something Innes Ward Coun. Rainer Bloess said

would deter casual riders. Cash fares would still be accepted, and tickets would have to be slowly phased out because many social service programs hand them out to participants. By the end of April next year, the first PRESTO passes will go on sale and 30 per cent of buses will have card readers at each set of doors. It’s part of a roll-out of the program that will happen over the summer, with adult passes implemented first, followed a month later by seniors’ passes and then Ontario Disability Support Program pass holders. While only 60 per cent of buses will have card readers by July of next year (OC Transpo expects all buses will have readers by August of 2012), Mercier said riders can still take any bus – they could just show the card to the driver and it would be assumed that the pass was paid for. Pre-loaded $25 PRESTO cards will be available at more than 300 vendors across the city next spring. For monthly pass holdes, the cards themselves will cost $6 to purchase initially, although Mercier said OC Transpo was

looking at some incentives as the program rolls out next spring. “SMART” CARD? Councillors are very interested in letting people use the PRESTO card for much more than riding the bus. Everything from borrowing library books to buying a coffee at Starbucks was discussed at the transit commission, but Mercier said the reality is that those options are far off. While the cards themselves have the technology to allow it, it would be up to each department or business to re-organize its priorities and re-jig its own technology to make it compatible. For instance, a card for parking at city lots and on-street spaces will be introduced later this year, but the “back-end” technology for the parking card doesn’t match up with the PRESTO card. “As technology evolves, those can be merged,” Mercier said. The city will also look into creating mobile PRESTO technology so that a rider’s pass could be read as an image on his/her cellphone.

Watch for turtles! SPECIAL TO THE KOURIER-STANDARD With the return of the warm months, turtles are emerging from their winter hibernation. Many turtles will attempt the hazardous trek across roads and highways in search of nesting sites. Unfortunately, a turtle’s shell is no match for motor vehicles and many turtles are killed on roads every year. Such traffic fatalities are devastating for the turtle population, as they tend to target adult females looking for places to lay their eggs. In Ontario seven of our eight species of turtles have been classified, by provincial and national authorities, as endangered, threatened or of special concern. The good news is that there are about 700 turtle crossing signs installed on highways throughout Ontario, thanks to the dedication and efforts of the Turtle S.H.E.L.L Tortue (a registered charitable organization – www.turtleshelltortue. org). We can all do our part by paying close attention to the road and shoulders in these desig-

If you see a turtle crossing the road please help it across. First, make sure that it’s safe to help (do not endanger yourself or others by walking into heavy traffic). Move the turtle in the direction that it is traveling – this might not be toward water.
