Voters filled the municipal centre’s theatre chairs – some even sat in the aisles – as they listened to their candidates discuss the future of North Grenville. Concerns ranged from the municipality’s growth to concerns over the water supply. Hosted by the North Grenville Chamber of Commerce and moderated by Paul Jansen, the meeting started with opening statements from each of the candidates. They were then asked questions based on a chamber poll of the top five issues voters wanted to know about. A question was raised regarding the possible potable water supply shortage in the municipality due to an increase in development in the area. Councillor incumbent Terry Butler said the municipality follows the Clean Water Act every year to ensure it’s doing what it needs to do. “This legislation since Walkerton has been hard and stiff. We review it every year and we’re 100 per cent in compliance,” said Butler. “We have enough capacity to handle what’s on the books. That’s been assured by our CAO and our treasurer.” Deputy Mayor incumbent Ken Finnerty said while there were problems with sewer lines in the past, the municipality coped with it and now there is no problem.

In the Oct. 14 issue of the Advance, there was a feature section with information of all area municipal candidates in this year’s municipal election. Pages 14 and 15 included North Grenville’s candidates, but Incumbent Councillor Barb Tobin was missed. Barb Tobin will be one of the candidates on the ballot this year. The Advance regrets the error and any inconvenience this may have caused.

Barb Tobin considers herself an act – not react – person who likes to be informed when making a decision. “My last four years have provided a good foundation to be able to continue to work on the community’s behalf,” said Tobin. Having completed her first term as councillor, Tobin believes she has gained experience and a better understanding of municipal government that she can put to good use. If re-elected, she would like to continue to build ties in the cultural community and work on improving communication with residents. “I hope we can continue to build on making it a simple process to get information and understand how it fits into the big picture,” said Tobin. Tobin wants to thank the people who elected her to the council seat four years ago. “If re-elected, I will continue to work in a professional positive manner to represent constituents of North Grenville at the council table.”

North Dundas voters know what they want from their council. More than 150 voters packed the South Mountain Agricultural Hall on Thursday, Oct 14 to hear their 2010 municipal election candidates explain why they should be the ones voted onto the North Dundas council on Oct. 25. The mood was festive in the hall as the all-candidates meeting, sponsored by the North Dundas Chamber of Commerce, got under way. The evening of questions and candidate speeches was introduced by chamber president Owen Shortt who said to the crowd, “Please get involved, ask questions - hear what they (candidates) have to say.” Each of the candidates took turns explaining their various platforms and concerns to the crowd at the hall. Growth, accountability and better service from the township was high on the list of goals candidates wanted to achieve. Adding to the municipal shopping list was a promise to market North Dundas better, while visioning for the future and to develop definite plans regarding the township’s roads. Mayor Alvin Runnalls said that he was happy to campaign on his track record. He sited several high-profile projects such as the Chesterville/ Winchester water plan and the Chesteville waterfront project as examples of how the township can get things done. “We have the people and the talent in the township to meet the challenges in the future,” he said. Runnalls pointed out that the council was made up of five members and knowing the art of compromise was crucial. Mayoral candidate Eric Duncan stated, “I have a passion for serving

Breaking the cycle of poverty

Theatre calls for auditions

The all-candidates meetings going on around the countryside reflect specific concerns from each area. Some overlap but for the most part, voters in any area tend to stay close to home when it comes to what they want to see. The folks in North Dundas are no different and one of the questions asked of the candidates in their township was about affordable housing. There is not much of a leap from affordable housing to the concern they have about poverty in the area. It is on the rise and affordable housing is just one of many solutions being considered. Unfortunately local councils, though they are closest to the front line, have to contend with getting their piece of the social pie from the next level of government, the united counties. The issue of rural poverty is a big one for the House of Lazarus in Mountain and the Salvation Army in Kemptville. You do not hear much about it at any council table. Way back in 2008 the Ontario government released a poverty reduction strategy. The theme behind it was “breaking the cycle” Every person in Ontario was to having the opportunity to reach his or her potential. The focus was on children and their families and “unleashing the potential in communities.” Well that was two years ago. We have seen all kinds of infrastructure money pouring into this part of Ontario and for all the right reasons but very little news about poverty reduction. While all of the candidates from North Dundas to Merrickville-Wolford talk about how they will work to keep their townships growing and their planning logical, those caught up in the cycle of poverty are being left behind. It is not all about how much money you make as much as it is about the kind of community you belong to. Each and every community in the area has proven how much they are willing to give of their time and money to help their causes. All that we need now is for local government to place a few words of encouragement in the ears of the various levels of government to work on levelling the playing field.

COLUMN

From the big city with love I’m a city boy, born and raised, but don’t hold that against me. When I was hired to be the new reporter for the Advance, I was nervous and skeptical about my ability to thrive in a small town environment. I still am to an extent, but after seeing the sights of the town, meeting some of its residents, and coming into a friendly office with passionate reporters and employees has allayed a lot of my fears. From the moment I took exit 34 off highway 416 and drove down County Road 43 towards Kemptville, I found myself repeating one key word to myself: “charming”. While I drove past the various strip malls, big box stores, and empty development fields, I was impressed with all the big city amenities that are available in a town that is truly anything but, but my true wallop punch came as I turned left off County Road 43 and into Old Kemptville. “This is exactly what I was expecting Kemptville to be!” I exclaimed to myself out loud over my blaring radio. I was instantly swept up in the

ANDREW SZTEIN beauty of the classical brick buildings, none taller than two or three stories, the largest structures being the silver cones from the myriad churches and places of worship sprinkled throughout the town. No, I’m definitely not in Ottawa anymore, and I realized the power that a tight knit community has over a person when I began dreading the heavy traffic, loud honking, crowded sidewalks, and looming structures of the big city on my way home. I am one of the lucky few who gets to leave the city to work, an opportunity that not too many get in their careers. The next day, I found myself looking forward to jumping into my car and heading back to the little slice of small town nirvana that is my new place of work.

this? First impressions are very important, and your town has made a doozy of one on me. Outgoing reporter Kristy Wallace recently took me on a tour of your idyllic little town and introduced me to several of the movers and shakers who call Kemptville home. She showed me the municipal hall, the arenas, the churches, the small businesses, the university campus, and a lot of green space in between. I understand that Kristy has become an honorary member of the community in her time as a reporter at the Advance, and I hope I am able to capably perform in her role. She may be a full foot shorter than me, but she has left me some very big shoes to fill nonetheless. I look forward to bringing you the stories that matter to residents of this fine area and working out of the heart of this charming community. The commute may be long, but my enthusiasm matches the mileage. It seems that there’s room for some country in this city boy after all.

With a little help from their friends, the North Grenville Accessible Transportation (N.G.A.T.) is putting a new bus on the road. Thanks to a generous grant of $76,500 from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, its representative Betsy Heately and Leeds Grenville MPP Steve Clark, the North Grenville Accessible Transportation (N.G.A.T.) was able to purchase a brand new accessible bus to help celebrate its 11th year of providing convenient and accessible transportation for citizens of North Grenville and the surrounding areas. “I’m excited that the On-

tario Trillium Foundation is providing this $76,500 grant to allow North Grenville Accessible Transportation to purchase its new accessible bus,” said MPP Steve Clark. “This new vehicle will ensure N.G.A.T. can continue to provide mobility for all citizens, which is critical in rural municipalities.” With the previous bus being in need of expensive repairs at the time, the cost of maintain the bus became quite pricey. The decision to purchase a new bus became a simple one when the benefit of safe transportation for the citizens was assured. Many businesses and organizations throughout the municipality of Leeds and Grenville provide N.G.A.T.

tation Don Gilchrist spoke of his pride toward his community saying “It is so great to see diversity in our church congregation, knowing that people with mobility issues can now regularly attend church activities.” North Grenville Accessible Transportation (N.G.A.T.) began in 1998 by concerned citizens. It then became a non-profit organization in October of

hosting a special evening of singing on Sunday, Oct. 24 at 2 p.m. The songs have been reproduced in Kemptville on a music CD called “Songs of he Combat Soldiers”. While some of the music dates back to the first and second World Wars many are from the Korean War and have never been heard by the public. Tickets to the performance are $10 for adults and $5 for children. The profits from the performance will go to the widows of Korean War Veterans. For more information about the book and the CD please call Terry Meagher at 613-258-5539.

Music can trigger memories as rich real as the day they were formed. As the 60th anniversary for the Korean war considered by historians to be the “Forgotten War”, Canadian war veterans of the conflict join together to preserve their memories and history. The Canadian soldiers defending against the Chinese army during the war had little to keep their spirits and courage up during the conflict. At night in their barracks and in their mess tents they would find solace and comfort in songs. A book called “The

Canadian infantry soldier in Korea, and The Songs He Sang”, put together by Terry Meagher, a veteran himself of the Korean War is about to be published. The book recreates the times, trials and tribulations of Canadian soldiers as they stood their ground in a country rife with disease, rats and the enemy. The songs the soldiers sang in their camps and as they huddled on frozen Korean hillsides represent the only comfort they had. As a tribute to those who lost themselves in the music as history rolled by them changing their lives forever, the Kemptville Legion Branch 212 will be

Internet voting and phone voting are new to North Grenville in this year’s municipal elections. For those who have received their pin numbers in the mail, here are some helpful tips while you vote for your favourite candidates this year. Tips for Internet voting -When opening the website page, you might see a box with a series of numbers and letters. This appears because the computer needs to make sure the voter is a person accessing the website.

Type the words/numbers you see in the box and the website will let you continue further. -If you leave the computer alone for five minutes, the system will log you out at the five-minute mark. Don’t panic when this happens. If you log back in again, the system will take you where you left off and will save your changes. -You are always asked to confirm your vote before you send it. It’s the equivalent of changing your vote before putting it in the ballot box. To select “vote now� is the same as putting your ballot in the box. -if you select too many candidates, you will get a message saying you cannot do that. In other words, e-voting and phone voting does not allow a voter to spoil their ballots.

Morrisburg ......... 613-543-2375 David K Thomas, Director

Tips for phone voting: -Like voting in person or via the Internet, phone voting allows you to change your vote before you confirm it. -In a specific category, for example councillor candidates, a voter can vote for a maximum of 4 councillors each one after another or vote one at a time and wait for a prompt to continue. -It will be helpful to have the list of candidates from your voter instruction letter in front of you when you go to vote, so you can remember who is running in what category. The letter will include your PIN number voting instruction, and candidate information.

“There is nothing wrong with our three wells and there’s no reason to be drilling another well,� said Finnerty. Development in the municipality was also a major issue that candidates addressed. A question came in with a concern about development suffering if the current council isn’t re-elected. Councillor challenger Elwood Armour said he feels development won’t suffer. “It might be slightly re-directed, but this place is an easy go [for developers],� he said. Councillor challenger Gary Schuck agreed that development will never stop, and challenger David Shanahan said he hopes development will continue in a way that values green space and heritage. “We need a better deal for the people. To turn this into a metropolitan suburb of Ottawa is not what we want,� he said. “It’s about attracting rural and small-town aspects - not pouring concrete over every field in sight.� The mayoral candidates were questioned about the many challenges facing council, and how as mayor they would direct the council. Candidate Barrie Taylor said the next four years won’t be different than the issues the municipality is facing now. “You have to guide it properly,� he said. David Gordon, also a candidate, said the major challenges will be growth and how council deals with that growth. “We would have to look at the infrastructure first before we go forward,� said Gordon. “And, focus on the quality of life

we have. We have an aging population, where will they be? We also need to bring more jobs into North Grenville, not just retail jobs.� Incumbent Bill Gooch said it would be important to look at the community plan and update it, as well as encourage all developers to come build condo and apartment developments for an aging population. Candidates were also asked about how businesses in Old Town Kemptville can survive. Challenger Brent O’Reilly was met with applause when he said there needs to be parking in the old downtown. “The first thing we need is a plan in place for people to park their car,� he said. “And people need a way to get to their businesses.� Roweena Cooper, chair of the heritage committee, was one of a few people who went up to a microphone to ask a question. Cooper asked them if they would consult the Official Plan when disposing of municipally-owned heritage buildings – referring to the recent sale of a few heritage buildings in the area. Candidates agreed they would all consult the plan, and that heritage is an important aspect of North Grenville. “I agree with heritage. It can compliment the future. Without the past, we have no future,� said Gordon. Candidates each gave their closing remarks and the public was invited to mix and mingle with them afterwards.

The youth centre has received funding from the Municipality of North Grenville, the Rotary Club, and they have applied for grants

for accessibility from the town. They have received a generous donation of paint from Canadian Tire. This has given them a good start to their project but they are still going to require more help. “We’d like to thank the community that has come forward,” said the CEO. The community is sure to help the youth centre pull through.

The Kemptville Youth Centre (K.Y.C.) is looking for partners to help it make their new building a home. The youth group has moved to the formal Pentecostal Church in Kemptville on Oxford Street West from Prescott Street. The K.Y.C. has been working out of Prescott Street ever since it was created in 1993. Since then it has been a place for the youth of the community to meet and interact with one another. The former K.Y.C building was in need of repairs and did not have the room necessary for the group to grow and offer the kinds of services that were needed. Executive Director Stacey Tenbult said that they wanted to be moved as soon as they possibly could. “We’re on track to be open by the end of the month,” said Tenbult. Until that time, they are looking for any volunteers as well as businesses and contractors to help make the proper repairs to the church.

Food and funny will be on a collision course as amateur theatre troupe Isle in the River hits the stage at the Osgoode community centre for a performance of Canadian comedy play, Jitters. The troupe is returning to dinner theatre after a year-long hiatus brought on by fiscal difficulties. “We needed to see if it was feasible to have a dinner theatre without losing our shirts,” said second vice-president and Jitters star Lynn Jolicoeur. “For a while it was done by a family member of one of the executive team and he did it basically for free. Now he’s retired so it was tough to replace him while keeping ticket prices reasonable for the audience.” However, the show goes on for Isle in the River after they had a successful spring run in Said the Spider to the Spy, a more light hearted farce than the current production of Jitters. “(Jitters) is a play about the challenges and relationships that go on when producing a play,” said director Len Trembley. The play is set in Toronto as a new production begins rehearsals. The goal of the play is to give a humorous look at what goes into a production of Canadian theatre. Like much creative Canadiana, there are a few playful jabs at the differences between Americans and Canadians, in this case focused on the theatrical differences. “In the U.S. you think of Broadway, but here, most theatres are not all that profitable,” said Trembley. “There’s a great line in the play about Canadian theatre, ‘Where else can you be a star and still die broke and anonymous?’”

Jolicoeur not only helped organize the dinner theatre event, but is also playing the lead of Jessica, a fading Broadway star who is using a stint in Canadian theatre as a springboard to another shot at the big stage. Along the way she’s joined by a cast of kooky characters, some who are just as frighteningly determined as she is. In an instance of drama mirroring reality, this production of Jitters has had its own production problems including constantly changing producers and a frantic search to find a new Courtesy photo actor to play the role of Tom, an Amateur theatre group Island in the River will be preironically unreliable actor in the senting Jitters. The cast of Jitters is pictured above. play. “We lost the actor who was originally going to play Tom, so ITR went through a lot of ups and downs trying to replace him. It’s pretty appropriate that the character causes similar strife in Jitters,” said Trembley. Regardless, the show is ready to go on with a full pre-show dinner prepared and served by students from the Kemptville campus of the University of Guelph. The meal includes hip of beef, fresh Municipality of North Grenville 420701-41-10 baked rolls, choice of salad, and dessert. Drinks and snacks will also be served at a cash bar. “I’ve heard nothing but positives from people who have eaten their food before. I think people will be happy with it,” said Jolicoeur. The show kicks off at 8 p.m. at the Osgoode Community Centre on Friday Oct. 29, and the dinner performance will be held Saturday Oct. 30 at 6 p.m. A slew of other performances will take place throughout the first week of November. The dinner performance tickets are $45, while the other shows are $15 for adults and $13 for students and seniors. Tickets are available by calling 613-860-1291 or at the door.

roads based on how bad a road was, where it was and how much traffic was on it. He explained the township could create a list of road work priorities. Runnalls said that roads and taxes go hand in hand. He said that even though

the township did have a plan to fix roads, the plan would change based on the road situation at the time. He suggested the township borrow the money it would need to repair as many roads as possible and pay the loan back with the savings from using less gravel during the year.

goals. Nick Duhn scored his third of the year. With the game tied 3-3, the overtime period of four on four had no scoring. Carleton Place captured the extra point with a victory in the shootout. Up next for the 73’s will be an equestrian affair with the Kanata Stallions and the Cornwall Colts coming to town. The Stallions will be visiting on Friday, Oct. 22 with game time at 7:30 p.m. and the Colts will be here on Sunday, Oct. 24 with game time at 7 p.m. Come out and support the Kemptville 73’s, your local Junior A team.

When I discovered the polished mahogany box I always put my hand on it and whispered, “There you are. I love you.” Dad’s pancreatic cancer revealed itself as more than just a persistent back pain in August of 2007. By September 11, despite surgery, it had spread and he was diagnosed terminal. We lost him just four months later, on January 14, 2008. Maybe we held onto his ashes for another two and a half years because we weren’t ready to say goodbye yet.

We do our own wailing here, thank you. After the ceremony, Mom explained that when she told Dad she had chosen a spot for them to be buried together in Oxford Mills, his reply was, “Oh.

His remains are in a much safer place now, and we all have a place to visit.

”...when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.” - from The Prophet, Kahlil Gibran. After a few days of cold rain and harsh winds, we were blessed with warm sunshine and a cool breeze on October 16, the day we chose to bury Dad’s ashes. The sun shone through yellow leaves onto the black tombstone that Mom had so carefully chosen to mark Dad’s final resting place. It has been engraved with a waterside scene of two Adirondack chairs on a dock, with two loons floating near the shore. Dad was happiest near the water. For the past two and a half years, Dad’s resting place has been various locations of prominence in the house where he spent the last 24 years of his life. It became a bit of a game for me, every time I dropped in at

16 Election Insider

Our city is changing…

Who will you vote for? On October 25, 2010, Ottawa will elect a new mayor and city council. This election is one of the most important and closely contested in recent history. With a wide slate of candidates and many important issues at stake, it is important to stay informed.

Group, publisher of 11 weekly community papers in the Ottawa area, has chosen to provide you with up-todate, comprehensive coverage in our papers and online of all of the candidates, the local issues and how they plan to tackle the issues.

Having so many choices can be daunting. For this election, we have been asked to choose from of a record number of potential candidates. The key is not to let the sheer multitude of choice keep you from voting. If you allow that to scare you off, you will be effectively turning over the keys to the city to people who may not share your opinions or the needs of your community.

All of the candidates who chose to participate are profiled in this issue in one complete, informative section. We interviewed and met with all the mayoral candidates and asked council candidates to answer questions on some of the key issues in each ward. In this way, you can follow how each candidate stands on the key issues in their own words.

Thorough research and consideration should be given to all candidates and that is why Metroland Media

We hope that this election feature will help keep you informed and will encourage you to get out and vote on election day.

1) Who can vote? You can vote in the municipal election if you are: • a Canadian citizen • at least 18 years old • a resident of your respective municipality • a non-resident owner or tenant of land in your respective municipality, or their spouse • not prohibited from voting under any law

2) What should I take with me to vote? Your voter information card and acceptable pieces of identification, which include the following: • One piece of ID showing your name, address (where you currently live or own property) and signature or two pieces of ID — the first piece showing your name and signature and the second piece of ID showing your name and address. • If you do not have acceptable identification you will be asked to swear an oath before being issued a ballot. • Your voter information card cannot be used as identification

3) What offices will the City’s electors be voting for?

Which ward do you live in?

Cesar Bello A PhD in social anthropology, resident of Ottawa for more than 20 years, and owner/ director of Mundo en Espanol Newspaper in Ottawa, Bello says he’s running to stop crime and unnecessary spending. He vows to improve social services and create more jobs, to promote clean energy and recycling and improving - make affordable and reliable - the public transit, and to limit property tax increases to below the rate of annual inflation. Cesar Bello is not your everyday politician. Not only is he not afraid to change his stance on an issue if it means doing what residents want, but he doesn’t believe in belittling his mayoral candidate rivals. In fact, he doesn’t even believe he’s pitted against people in the race. “I am not in competition with anyone,” Bello said. “When you’re in competition, there’s fighting and nothing gets accomplished.” Bello was inspired to run for mayor after reading a column about the city-wide bus strike in February 2009. He filed his papers on April 16, citing a need for action. Bello vows to make transportation more affordable and an essential service in this city. “I saw a lot of pain in the residents,” he said, noting he would do a review to decide whether buses or light rail would be the transportation method of choice in the future. “There were people having to stay home and people losing their jobs.” Born in Peru, Bello has lived in Ottawa for 20 years and loves the city’s “friendly” nature. “This is our home and we have to work hard to keep it beautiful,” he said. “Whenever some asks where I’m from, I say ‘This is home.’ I love Ottawa.”But there are parts of the city Bello knows that need some improvements. The 47-year-old said taxes have risen at an alarming rate recently. Though he knows freezing tariffs are not possible, he said the increase should be more in line with inflation rate. “No more money taken from Joe taxpayer’s pockets,” he said. “Poverty in our city is an issue, but it never was before. How come? We’re in Canada.” With a PhD in social anthropology, Bello understands negotiation and said he’s able to work effectively both by himself and in a team. “It’s not one person’s work, but everyone’s,” he said. “Together we can make things work.” He said finishing the work he sets out to do, instead of fighting, is paramount to gaining the residents’ trust and respect. Doing so will create a vibrant community filled with richness and prosperity, he added. “I do what my people want me to do. My commitment is to the people.”

• The Mayor is elected at large by all electors. • Councillors are elected by the eligible voters of each ward – one Councillor for each of Ottawa’s 23 wards. • School Board Trustees are elected by zones, which comprise one or more City wards. The board you are entitled to vote for is determined by your school support status, as shown on the voters’ list.

Idris Ben Tahir Idris Ben-Tahir, 71, has a B.A. from the University of Ottawa and retired from the Royal Canadian Air Force in 2004. He ran for the Conservative federal nomination in Ottawa Centre and ran in the Somerset ward in 2006. He retired in 2004, but is back and ready to make this city better.

Idris Ben-Tahir wants to make changes in the way Ottawa is governed. Born in India, the 71-year-old decided to run for mayor on Sept. 10 – the last day of registration. Ben-Tahir said he had been thinking about it for a while “but wanted to study the matter thoroughly.” “I’ve wanted to make a difference in the way Ottawa has been run for a long time,” he said, adding the current has a myopic vision. “The city has been using Ottawans as tax producers for their trove without contributing to the welfare of both the city and its denizens.” As someone who had served with the RCAF Primary Reverse since moving to Ottawa in 1960, Ben-Tahir has lived in around the downtown core ever since – save for a year in Cold Lake, Alta. where he worked editing the engineering performance reports as part of the air weapons range. As a result, Ben-Tahir said he is running for “neglected Ottawans” in the rural areas of the city who have let down by the city since amalgamation. Ben-Tahir’s top priority is to build a bypass south of the highway 417. But that doesn’t mean he’s forgotten about public transportation. The candidate doesn’t think Ottawa has an acceptable transit system for a G8 capital, especially since Toronto and Montreal have more efficient methods. “Nothing is connected in this city,” Ben-Tahir said. “You arrive at the bus station or the airport and you have to take a taxi. Why do we make life difficult for people?” Ben-Tahir wants to have a light-rail line from Kanata to Orleans, branching from Hazeldean to the airport with stops in Riverside South and Barrhaven. “Then there should be buses in places light rail cannot go,” he said. Many feel that light rail is too expensive, but Ben-Tahir said it’s irrelevant when it comes to future impacts.“The cost is not the problem,” he said. “Once you build it, the economic benefits will be huge.” The monarchist lists former prime minister John Diefenbaker – whom he met in the late 1960s – as one of his biggest mentors.“I think it’s about time somebody does something to help this city,” he said. “I’m coming out of retirement just to help the citizens of our national capital.”

Clive Doucet BIO: Clive Doucet has held the Capital Ward council seat for 11 years. He began his career at the Federal Ministry of Urban Affairs, then worked on local government reform at the Ontario Municipal Affairs Ministry. He is married with two children and three grandchildren. Trailing by a significant margin in the polls, Clive Doucet knows he faces an uphill struggle in the remaining days of the mayoral race, but he insists quiet support is building and his platform is working.“I think people are going to be surprised when the vote comes on Oct. 25,” he said. “People behind the scenes are very, very supportive.” Few will state publicly their support because he is battling large corporations that small business people need to work with, he said, adding that doesn’t accept donations from developers. Doucet, in municipal politics since 1997, points to support for his small business and farms plank, to urban and suburban commuters for his transportation ideas, and to youth interested in his plan to reform spending effectively and reform governance. The son of an Acadian father and English war bride, the 64-year-old Doucet has long wrestled with Canada’s two solitudes identity. It appears here and there in his 15 books, and in his politics where he often champions the underdog while offering what he sees as practical solutions. When it comes to small business and farmers, Doucet offers to focus money and talent on the burgeoning green economy and improve food distribution facilities.“I’ve been working with small business and farmers for a long time now,” he said. “When I was first elected we didn’t have a single farmers’ market. We now have one in every neighbourhood.” A new transit system has to come now, said Doucet, not in 10 or 20 years. He champions a surface light rail transit, calling it affordable, efficient, reliable and economically sensible. As mayor, he vows to: start an eastwest rail corridor along Carling Avenue, extend the north-south O-Train to the airport, use Laurier Avenue for light rail, build light rail east to Blair Road and delay the planned tunnel. Doucet doesn’t believe in offering a catch phrase like “zero means zero” or a promise to reach 2.5 per cent tax increases. His pledge is to spend revenue more effectively, find savings – such as cancelling the Lansdowne deal – that will offset the need for high tax increases. Both the tunnel and Lansdowne will cost taxpayers dearly, he said.

Robert Furtenbacher BIO: Joseph Furtenbacher, 50, has been living in Ottawa for the past 16 years. Self-taught in economics, foreign exchange and philosophy, he is a former band player and lives on a provincial disability plan. Mayoral candidate Joseph Furtenbacher said he decided to run because the city is in dire need of an overhaul. “Everyone else is doing everything wrong,” said the 50-year-old. “They’re pulling ideas out of a hat.” Self-taught in economics, foreign exchange and philosophy, Furtenbacher said the city needs a progressive tax reform. He said he wants to see good zones and bad zones and tax each accordingly. Bad zones, like gas stations, would be taxed more heavily than good zones. Furtenbacher said he also wants to see city council take a pay cut. “I have philosophical reasons for working for (less money).” He said he would accept around $40,000 and the rest would be spent for city projects. “If everyone who works for this city paid ourselves less, there would be more money for projects,” said Furtenbacher. Furtenbacher said he wants to see above-ground rapid transit, similar to the GO train in Toronto with feeder buses to alleviate traffic congestion. “I’d start with an east-west line and add more as it goes,” he said. He would have connecting loops around the major areas in the city, including Kanata, Barrhaven, Orleans and Centretown. Much of the line would use existing tracks. “I like to have a rationale behind it,” said Furtenbacher. “There’s no rationale to going underground.” He also wants to see the current Lansdowne project scrapped in favour of more green space. “I would get rid of the pavement,” he said. “I would keep the historical and outlying buildings.” He said he wants to put a stop to council selling public land to developers. “There’s been too many bad decisions,” he said. He said the city’s bicycle bylaws need to be changed because biking in the city isn’t safe. “The only reason I haven’t been hit is because I break the rules.” He said bikes should be allowed to use the sidewalks, especially when needing to make a left-hand turn.He said drivers don’t pay enough attention to cyclists and it can be a gamble sitting on a bike in the left turn lane.

“Instead of looking at the tax cut, try and look at where your government is spending its money,” he said.

Robert Gauthier Bio: Robert Gauthier is a long-time Parkwood Hills resident who now lives downtown. He is a 73-year-old widower with three children and two grandchildren. He is retired from a career that has included construction, engineering and sales. Gauthier now works part-time in a fast-food restaurant to supplement his retirement income.

Andrew Haydon BIO: Andy Haydon is the former mayor of Nepean and also served as chair of the regional municipality of Ottawa-Carleton. Haydon, 76 and his wife, Sherry live in Barrhaven. He has two sons and two daughters, and two friendly dogs.

The little guy has a friend in Robert Gauthier. The 73-year-old is in the mayor’s race because he believes the electoral process is unfair to anyone who’s not considered a front-runner.

Trains or buses? It’s Ottawa’s $2.1-billion question. It’s the elephant in the room. But no one seems to be taking expansion of our bus system seriously, with mayoral frontrunners Jim Watson and Larry O’Brien on record supporting light rail.

“We have to change the process because candidates are not being heard,” Gauthier said. “Give people an opportunity to evaluate the 20 candidates. It shouldn’t be a rich citizen’s race or an influential citizen’s race.”

Former Nepean mayor and regional chair Andy Haydon wants to change that. He wants to get people talking about buses because the cost of expanding the existing system is much lower than scrapping chunks of the Transitway in favour of rail.

In that vein, Gauthier said he has already filed a statement of claim against organizers of an Oct. 5 mayoral debate at the National Arts Centre – to which only Jim Watson, Larry O’Brien, Clive Doucet and Andrew Haydon were invited. “It’s really an impediment to the proper function of democracy in Canada,” Gauthier said, taking the opportunity to state his campaign slogan: “Democracy means choices.”

Haydon does agree with rail-backers on one count: the need for a downtown tunnel to ease congestion on city streets above. But he said that tunnel could just as easily carry buses, and exhaust won’t be an issue with electric-hybrid buses that can switch to battery power as they pass below the city’s core.

He said he’s seeking “the fast-food vote,” by which he means the average worker. “The people who make minimum wage aren’t represented,” he said. Gauthier arrived at an interview still wearing his uniform from a shift at a fast-food restaurant, and was proud to do so, insisting on pinning on his name tag for a photo.

“For the last 100 years, trains have remained unchanged,” Haydon said. “Bus technology is advancing all the time.” He sees buses running along our existing Transitway, zipping through a tunnel as efficiently as any train, and popping out the other end to complete the cross-Ottawa trip without need for transfers. And if you only need a tunnel – without rails – the city could have a budget surplus on its hands.

“The bottom line of a balance sheet isn’t money, it’s people,” he said. “There are lots of people out there who make minimum wage and those people want a community that respects the people rather than the influential.”

Haydon said his goal will always be the highest ridership at the lowest cost, and he believes light rail misses the mark. He knows he’s up against a proposed rail system that tugs at voters’ emotions. He says rail is “sexy.” But maybe voters can come around if they can bear to look at Haydon’s very unsexy numbers.

Some of Gauthier’s priorities include a freeze on bus fares and better maintenance of existing infrastructure. “Broken buses are number one,” he said. “I’ve worked in transportation and I know rolling stock, and you have to maintain them better. (The city) buys expensive buses and then they don’t maintain the roads. The priority should be what you buy and what you build.” Still on the issue of buses, Gauthier said that if he serves as mayor, there won’t be any bus strikes. “I think it’s better to work with labour and I support labour,” he said. “That doesn’t mean I’m anti-management, but you collaborate.”

He estimates the city’s taxpayers will be on the hook for $13,600 per household when it comes time to pay the light rail bill. And those costs may go up because the provincial and federal governments have capped their commitment to this city’s transit system, making any cost overruns the responsibility of city council.

Gauthier is also interested in ways to reduce crime. He said 90 per cent of crimes can be traced back to a small number of people, and the best way to handle the perpetrators is to educate them.

“If they debenture it (borrow the funds) you can double it,” he said. “If you want to pay that, then you deserve to have light rail.” Instead, he sees buses running along our existing Transitway, zipping through a tunnel as efficiently as any train, and popping out the other end to complete the cross-Ottawa trip without need for transfers. And if you only need a tunnel – without rails – the city could have a budget surplus on its hands.

Robin Lawrance BIO: Robin Lawrance, 56 years old, emigrated to Canada from Scotland. Lawrence said he served 10 years with the Canadian Forces and has been involved in politics since the 1980s.

Fraser Liscumb BIO: Fraser Liscumb, 62, has lived in the St. George’s area of the west end for the past 22 years. He has worked as a janitor at Carleton University while serving as a full time “Mr. Mom” as he believes that family comes first. Fraser Liscumb views himself as a troubleshooter, a fixer, a visionary.

Mayoral candidate Robin Lawrance said those elected to city council need to start paying attention to the taxpayers – and letting the next mayor do the job properly. “If you’re going to be the boss, they (the councillors) have to let him be the boss,” said the 56-year-old. “But the mayor also needs to listen to the taxpayers.” He said there is too much talking within council, without any action. “I’m not going to say I’m going to; I will,” said Lawrance. “You know the problem with this city? Too much talking and not enough doing. I see there is a great need for someone at the helm who’s going to care.”

That is why he is running to be mayor of the city of Ottawa in the upcoming municipal election. He wants to use his ability to solve problems and come up with solutions to remedy what’s wrong at city hall. And he will do this all, he says, by working with people and communities.“I always believe the community is only as good as the network you have helping each other,” he says. He believes that people should try to make a difference in life and that’s what he wants to do as mayor, especially since he feels he understands the plight of ordinary individuals who right now are hurting and need solutions, not problems, coming from city hall. He promises to get people involved. “I have the skills, the tools, the imagination to get them involved,” Mr. Liscumb says.

He said the idea of underground transit is absurd in a city that is prone to earthquakes. “It’s stupid to go underground when we have rail tracks,” said Lawrance, who estimated it would cost around $8 million to clean and convert the tracks. “Ain’t it a better deal than digging underground?”

Indeed, this is why he is running to be mayor as he does not believe his own children will be able to live in their hometown if things keep going the way they have been going. “I don’t sit back if a see a problem, I make a suggestion,” he says.

Lawrance, who said he served with the Canadian Forces for 10 years before being honourably discharged after being hit in the back of the neck, which caused his vision loss, wants to see taxes frozen.

He says that he never gets involved in things unless it is to make a difference and that if he does get involved, he does end up making a difference.

“Why don’t we freeze them for a little while, then put it up for what we need and not for profit,” he said. “Do you know what the problem is with this city? They’ve forgotten about the people. At the end of the day it comes back to this, their pocket book.”

Liscumb is making only one promise when he becomes mayor. He promises that he will not make decisions alone but will do everything with community input.

He said taxes are being spent on projects the city doesn’t need. “I want to see the taxes being properly spent in this city. Not on silly projects.”

He also believes that people want change at city hall.“If they want change, I will give them such good change that no one will ever go back,” Mr. Liscumb says. This will be done by working with others and the community, he pledges.

Lawrance said he considers Lansdowne one of those projects.“If I go in as mayor, I will tear up the Lansdowne project. There is nothing for kids, nothing for teens, young people or seniors.”

He is an advocate of having a 21st century transit system as he says a city cannot compete in today’s global economy without such a system as it indicates to the world that the city is progressive. He advocates an electromagnetic rail system that would run alongside roads, carrying passengers in pods.

He said he would turn it into a historical park instead, with rides and attractions that offer historical background information.“Like a little Disney World,” he said. “Tourists would flock here. That’s using your imagination.”

Mr. Liscumb is an advocate for paying city staff at least a living wage plus ten per cent. He says that his own household has had to scrimp to get by at times and so he understands the need to pay decent wages.

Mike Maguire

Larry O’Brien

BIO: Married with two daughters, Mike Maguire is a long time resident and community volunteer in Ottawa. Mike has also spent years working on numerous political campaigns at all levels of government.

BIO: Mayor O’Brien was born in Ottawa and graduated from the Algonquin School of Technology in 1972 with a diploma in Technology. He founded Calian in 1982 as a one-person consulting company and built it into an internationally competitive technology firm.

Mike Maguire is taking a two-pronged approach with his mayoral platform: improving transportation and lowering taxes.

Larry O’Brien said he’s learned a lot during his past four years as mayor – what works and what doesn’t at city hall, and what he has to fix.

The self-employed analyst wants to create a rail system that’s similar to the Toronto area’s GO Train, with four separate lines across the city. He said his idea is cheaper because there is no service rail, it doesn’t contain a tunnel and it uses existing rail track in places like the Strandherd train station.

The incumbent said he will start by revisiting council’s decision to reject city staff’s recommendation to expand the urban boundary by 850 hectares, approving only an additional 230 hectares. Developers immediately appealed the decision at the Ontario Municipal Board.

The Kars resident added that any tunnel and light-rail plan that’s been proposed would bear a 16 per cent increase on taxpayers, especially given the expenses associated with maintenance and operations. “Let’s hear Mr. Watson and Mr. O’Brien address that,” Maguire said. “You might as well say it should be serviced by unicorns. It’s not possible.” Maguire analyzed the previous north-south light-rail proposal and recommended its cancellation in 2006. However he said the current other big-name candidates have “tunnel vision” and are not thinking about the effect the new system would have on the taxpayer. For instance, in rural areas like West-Carleton and Osgoode, Maguire said people would have to $460 per year compared to just $15 under any proposed transportation method. Small businesses would see a greater increase. Self-described as a “back-room guy for 20 years,” Maguire worked on Mayor Larry O’Brien’s campaign in 2006. The 49-year-old said he decided to run because he became “disenchanted with the last four years,” particularly with O’Brien’s failed promise of not raising taxes. “If he lost and I beat him, that would be provocative stuff,” Maguire said. “If he loses decisively, that’s a referendum on the decisions he has made over the last four years.” The two other top concerns for Maguire surround Lansdowne and language fairness. He said revamping Lansdowne on the taxpayers’ dime is an unbelievably risky idea, given the examples of SkyDome in Toronto and Olympic Stadium in Montreal, and should be a low priority because of taxes. Maguire doesn’t want Ottawa to be classified as bilingual. He would use the savings to help promote services in other languages like Chinese, Hindu, Arabic, and Somali, which he said are more popular in the city.

Council made a mistake that taxpayers will pay for fighting a losing battle at the OMB, said O’Brien. “Let’s get ourselves out of the legal mess we’ve put ourselves into,” he said. “The first thing I’m going to do (if re-elected) is move to accept staff … recommendations of urban boundary expansion.” Next on the agenda is city governance, said O’Brien, who is considering creating three new committees aligned by geography: urban, rural and suburban, offering the idea as an alternative to a borough system. O’Brien wants to remodel the budget-making process to allow the mayor to present the budget instead of city staff, which can later be debated and changed by council. The incumbent said he still wants to hold the line on tax increases, but that he’ll need the support of council. “I’ll need to have a group of like-minded councillors on the financial side only,” said O’Brien, adding that he opposes political parties in municipal politics. A list will be released identifying candidates who support O’Brien’s ideas of fiscal responsibility, said the incumbent. Part of his proposed spending controls includes a plan to “freeze the city’s wage envelope,” he said. O’Brien said he’s “prepared to reduce services and cut staff” if the unions representing city staff aren’t prepared to negotiate wage controls. He also wants to create an independent transit commission to oversee OC Transpo and debate the future of the infrastructure renewal fund. O’Brien said he’s proud of council’s accomplishment’s which include approving an east-west light rail project, a renovated Lansdowne Park and cleaning up the Ottawa River.

Michael St. Arnaud BIO: Michael St. Arnaud is a 62-year-old retired draftsman who has lived in Nepean over the past decade. He holds a diploma in retail management from Algonquin College and has also studied in the police foundation program, the private and public investigation program and a law clerk course Ottawa needs a mayor who is going to speak up for the city’s most vulnerable citizens, said Michael St. Arnaud, a 62-year-old retired draftsman. Someone has to speak up for isolated seniors, people with disabilities and tenants seeking good housing in the city of Ottawa, he said. St. Arnaud declared himself a candidate for Ottawa’s 2010 mayoral election after looking at the slate of candidates. “I don’t think anybody’s advocating for the people of Ottawa,” said St. Arnaud. St. Arnaud said he has a history of sticking up for the little guy, as a volunteer at the Shepherds of Good Hope and helping low-income residents as a member of West End Legal Services and ACORN Canada (the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now), an organization of low and middle-income families that advocates for affordable housing, tenant rights and on other social issues. St. Arnaud, who has rented an apartment and a house in Nepean over the past two decades, studied the Landlord Tenant Act at Algonquin College, where he took a law clerk course. “That’s one of the reasons I’m going into the arena (of politics), to promote the idea that landlords should be licensed,” said St. Arnaud.

Jane Scharf BIO: Jane Scharf has a legal and social work background. Her primary interest is humane, rational and fair social policy. She has been a political activist for a number of years with many successful battles with city hall under her belt including the Homeless Action Strikes.

Jane Scharf is not just a one-issue candidate. “A lot of people say my only issue is homelessness, actually I think the city is making great strides in that area,” Scharf said. “But there is still a lot that we need to work on.” Scharf said city hall needs someone like her, who is ready to challenge the status quo. She wants to make sure that Ottawa is an inclusive city. “I will achieve this, not by running the city as a business which leaves vulnerable people out,” she said. “The business approach does not save money because the social fallout costs such as mental health costs, as well as the cost of policing and jailing the destitute is staggering. A well-run community is fiscally responsible and it does so without leaving anyone out. A community tries to make fair and reasonable decisions for all of us including the sick, weak and vulnerable.” Scharf would like city council to start a discussion in three areas: accountability, tax reform and the institution of a food security committee. She also said she believes a lot more done if the local politicians would spend more time on policy decisions and less time networking. “As a mayor I will not participate in any community events during office hours,” she said. “Community events I will attend after hours as a regular citizen.”

St. Arnaud said he’d like to see OC Transpo provide improved and more compassionate service for its ridership. More bike racks on buses would be a nice start, he said. Drivers and bus inspectors shouldn’t be so quick to ticket people who hop on the bus without paying, he added, suggesting that they allow a day’s leeway to purchase the fare.

She also believes in the creation of a police policy committee made up of a broad-based membership that will consult the public on desired policing issues.

Another hot-button issue facing candidates is taxes. St. Arnaud said he couldn’t see how council could offer a tax freeze and that it must balance any increase with the needs and wants of the citizens of Ottawa.

Her next move under the umbrella of accountability would be the creation of an inspector general’s office. The function of the office would be to conduct independent investigations and audits. “The Children’s Aid Society and school boards (have similar offices) to detect and deter waste, fraud, abuse, and misconduct, and to promote integrity, economy, efficiency, and effectiveness in all these operations,” Scharf said.

The retired Nepean man said he had a host of ideas aimed at helping low-income residents: - Encourage cycling in Ottawa. St. Arnaud said he’d like council to look at a free bicycling system used in France that provides free bikes for people to travel within the cities. - Create a support group for isolated seniors that runs like Meals on Wheels.

On the issue of tax reform, Scharf said the candidates should not promise arbitrary property tax increases, but advocate the federal and provincial governments for the proper funding to maintain our programs and services.

“I don’t think (any of the council candidates) are advocating for the City of Ottawa,” said St. Arnaud. “I don’t think they have the skills (needed to fix the problem.)”

Charlie Taylor

BIO: Working in journalism, Charlie Taylor (currently completing his Bachelor of Journalism degree at Carleton) has a vehicle to learn about and express his views for helping lead positive social change. Being mayor also would provide opportunities for Charlie to promote change for residents of the City of Ottawa. Charlie Taylor calls himself a breath of fresh air. He has set about a grassroots campaign since February, trying to make himself heard in the increasing number of voices seeking Ottawa’s top spot. “The more candidates there are, the less likely the serious candidates will be heard,” Taylor said, adding that major media outlets only tend to focus on the three or four top runners. “I feel like if I had equal media coverage, I would have a really good chance,” he said. Taylor ran for mayor because he didn’t feel there would be a candidate that represented his views. He describes his political bent as similar to those of the Green Party, but he stresses the fact that he’s just an average Joe. “I have worked a number of jobs and traveled to 45 countries on five continents,” he said. “Chances are I know what it is like to be you — I have been a bartender, a waiter and now I am a student. I can represent you better than a career politician or a successful businessman.”

“My complaint is that this municipal tax crisis is caused by federal and provincial downloading which forces the city to raise taxes to offset the shortfall from the transfer payments or lose the program or service,” she said.

Jim Watson BIO: Jim Watson stepped down this year as Ontario’s Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing and MPP for Ottawa West-Nepean to run to become mayor of the city of Ottawa. Mr. Watson was a councillor with the preamalgamation city of Ottawa as well as its mayor. This election campaign is “T” time for city of Ottawa mayoralty candidate Jim Watson. No, it doesn’t mean a tee time for golfing, although the campaign has not been without its times when candidates, especially Mr. Watson and his chief rival, incumbent mayor Larry O’Brien, have teed off on each other with various criticisms. And it doesn’t mean tea time, that traditional brew, although Mr. Watson, a former provincial cabinet minister, is legendary for his ability to schmooze with the best of them, whether it be over a cup of tea or a church supper or just on the street. But “T” time does stand for the three themes in his mayoralty campaign – taxes, transit and trust.

The 33-year-old Carleton journalism student can speak six languages and has close ties to Ottawa — where he was born and raised.

On municipal taxes, Mr. Watson is quite clear – annual increases of no more than 2.5 percent. He views this as a “realistic and affordable” proposal that will allow the city to manage without gutting important community services. He predicts city residents will not be hoodwinked with a promise of zero tax increases as happened in the last municipal election, followed by four years where taxes went up a collective 14 ½ per cent.

Taylor’s buzz word is sustainability — be it for the environment or for taxes—he wants to find a way that our municipal government can manage growth and provide services in a fiscally-responsible, sustainable way. “The elephant in the room is that over half of the city’s annual $2.2-billion budget goes to compensation,” Taylor said. “Salaries have risen 550 per cent since amalgamation — an increase that is out of proportion with inflation.”

On transit, Watson is committed to proceeding with the proposed east/west light rail plan with a downtown tunnel. “Let’s not flip flop again,” he says in reference to the cancellation of a light rail plan to serve the south end of the city after the last municipal election. He pledges to keep the new light rail plan on time and on budget and has proposed the appointment of a private sector board of management to oversee the project to ensure this.

Taylor said he if he is elected mayor he is willing to take a 50 per cent pay cut. He added that it’s possible to cut administration position through attrition, so no one has to be laid off.

“We can’t do everything at once,” he says in response to criticism that the light rail plan does not serve the south end of the city nor the far east and west suburbs. He says that the light rail system has to be built from the centre of the city out and promises to work to get more funding from other levels of government in order to quicken the time frame to serve these left-out areas.

The other big issue for Taylor is transit. “Our transit is the most expensive in Canada,” he said. “Prices were raised in March in order to meet the arbitrary goal of having 50 per cent of the cost covered by riders and 50 per cent covered by taxes.” Taylor calls this goal reasonable but says increasing fares may be a disincentive to riders. He also believes there are ways to make transit more efficient and less costly. “I want to make a greener, happier, healthier, wealthier city,” he said.

Trust is the third theme in Watson’s campaign, leading to what he calls his integrity package. This includes appointment of an integrity commissioner, registration of lobbyists and posting online the expenses of all elected officials. “This would set the gold standard for ethics in municipal government,” Mr. Watson says.

Ward 20 - Q&A

1 2 3

What are your plans for the 21-kilometre, multi-use pathway? What is your opinion of the green-bin program? What is your opinion of the borough system?

Bob Masaro BIO - Bob Masaro and wife Kathy have two children, Andrew and Paul, and have been residents of Osgoode for the last 20 years. He is currently working as a substitute teacher. He has worked on the roads for the city of Ottawa, in real estate and for several years in an oil refinery as a warehouse supervisor. His educational background is in urban geography, history, political science and law.

2. Creating viable alternatives for waste management is important. However, the way the green bin program was forced upon us, particularly in rural areas, was disgusting! A 20-year contract with Orgaworld was not logical. I feel that alternative programs for waste such as the proposal by Plastco should be considered. 3. The “borough system” of governance could be the undoing of any voice Osgoode Ward has on Council. Mr. Watson and Mr. Thompson are the only candidates expressing an interest in this system. Neither have provided any details or explanation as to which form they are interested in. This would create an additional layer of government and could remove Osgoode Ward from any say over a wide range of issues such as transportation and police services. We would still be paying for city taxes, but it is not clear if we would have any representation on council. I cannot emphasize how ill thought out this is for us. Our very existence as a voice may hang in the balance!

Doug Thompson BIO - Doug Thompson graduated from Carleton University, with a BA in History and Political Science. He has been an elementary school teacher for 35 years, has coached minor hockey and baseball and has been a resident of Osgoode Township since 1967. He served as councillor for the Township of Osgoode for 14 years during which time he was a member of every municipal committee and community board.

1. I was disappointed that this pathway was ever approved. One of my guidelines for improvement is that we need to stop wasting taxpayers’ money. This is costing approximately $1.4 million, during recessionary times, on a project that can only be 1. I am in support of this pathway on the railway deemed to be “nice to have”. I am supportive of recreation, however, the timing of this project is right of way, however, I have a very firm position questionable. Furthermore, this pathway is on the on the use of the pathway through the village of existing right of way that has always existed for Osgoode. I do not support the use of the pathway for commuter rail.

Ward 21 - Q&A

How will you ensure that large-scale developments proposed for Manotick and Richmond do not overwhelm the existing community’s infrastructure and adversely impact the community’s quality of life? What changes, if any, do you advocate for the governance of the city of Ottawa? Rural drainage and wetland designations are two concerns of many rural landowners. What is your position on these issues?

Our city is changing…

Who will you vote for?

Glenn Brooks BIO - Glenn Brooks is the incumbent Ottawa city councillor for the RideauGoulbourn ward, having been elected in the 2006 municipal election. Prior to that, he had been the city councillor for Rideau ward which was combined with Goulbourn in 2006 to form the current ward. A former North Gower farmer and a retired principal and teacher, he has been around the local political scene since 1976. 1. Under the Provincial Planning Act, the city has to acknowledge the receipt of planning related proposals within 20 days. The proposals are circulated to a number of agencies for comment. Public meetings are required under the Act. Large developments are phased in at 40 units per phase. There is no better way in determining socialeconomic and quality of life impacts on a community than through open dialogue through the creation of a Community Design Plan supported by a community advisory committee as I did in North Gower, Manotick and Richmond. I conduct numerous public meetings (227 from 2006 to 2010) in an attempt to determine public concerns regarding social and infrastructure matters. I strive to find consensus going forward within the community, staff, council and the proponent. 2. The borough governance model will return local decision making back to local residents on local issues where it belongs. This system complements the present one tier system and will reduce costs and

snowmobiles through the village. Background: I am a current member of the snowmobile club, and my young lads have snowmobiles, and memberships as well. The snowmobile trails are very important to the rural community. The folks in the village of Osgoode have made it clear to me that they do not want the noise and speed of the machines running through the center of the village. We do not have machines running through the center of any other villages in the city, so it is my position, if elected, to ensure that the snowmobile trail is diverted around the village of Osgoode! 2. I have fought the green bin program from the start, and am still fighting it! This is a multimillion dollar waste of money. The contract that was approved by Doug Thompson forces the taxpayer to deliver 80,000 tonnes of organics, and if we cannot deliver, we have to pay anyway! The tipping fee is directly related to the cost of living, with no cap, so this program could easily cost us $360,000 million over the next 20 years, plus trucking, start-up costs, and maintenance. 3. We do not require a borough system. We have enough red tape!

1. The Multi-Use Pathway will become one of Osgoode Ward’s premier recreational areas. This 22-kilometre pathway has the potential to connect the villages of Osgoode, Greely, and Manotick as well as the new Park and Ride at Leitrim. The limestone-packed surface will allow biking, jogging, and walking for residents of all ages in the summer. In the winter, the Snowmobile Club will groom the trail for their use; their work will allow cross-country skiing and winter walking to be more pleasurable. We anticipate it will create an economic boom for our rural villages and a remarkable opportunity to increase our outdoor activities. 2. This program was first initiated in 2003 and over the years through a variety of pilot projects in residential areas. In January 2010, the organics collection program began for single-family homes and in July, multi-residential homes were added to the collection cycle. Early in 2011, apartment buildings will become part of the program. 3. I support the creation of a modified borough system in the City of Ottawa. With this type of governance system, the local ward councillor and a volunteer ward council would be able to make local decisions without having to go through bureaucratic red tape or a complicated system for approvals by committees. Our city is 90 per cent rural with only 10 per cent of the population. We need a modified borough system to ensure our rural needs and goals are met in a more localized method. ”Communities BIO - Mark Scharfe has should govern communities”. worked for the municipality for over 28 years.

save time in the decision making process. 3. In rural areas, farm drainage is just as important as roads. Presently, drainage projects are fast becoming unaffordable. Thus I have asked that the province via the city’s Rural Affairs Officer Derek Moodie to review the Drainage Act in order to reduce the “red tape.” Further, I have asked that agencies requesting studies pay for those studies. The Ministry of Natural Resources must stop identifying “artificially” (due to poor drainage) created wetlands as significant wetlands at the owner’s expense without compensation.

Bruce Chrustie BIO - It was Ottawa’s label of “Silicon Valley North” that brought Bruce Chrustie to the area in the mid 1990’s as a recent engineering graduate. He eventually completed a graduate degree in Business Administration. He became more involving working in the community when it became apparent that continued mismanagement of rural issues was not going away. He focused on ensuring that the municipality did not overstep its authority on issues by providing guidance as required.

few years. Before we went into the Ontario Municipal Board appeals, we should have had city staff do their homework and determine what the area specific DC will be to cover off the infrastructure needs. 2. City council fears change. We need to keep it simple and categorize bylaws as either city wide or segment specific. The three segments would be urban, suburban and rural. That way, when an issue comes up, only those councillors who are in the segment get to vote on applicability for that area. Getting four councillors to decide a rural issue is much simpler than getting 23 to come to a conclusion. 3. I don’t believe there is a candidate who has greater knowledge of the Drainage Act than I have, given recent activity and appeals within the ward. The city must start acting on behalf of the rural residents when it comes to drainage and be an advocate, not adversary. Wetlands designation is driven by the province and yet again we have limited support from city officials on trying to come up with a winning scenario for landowners.

1. To ensure that large-scale developments proposed do not overwhelm existing infrastructure, we must ensure the developers have in place the proper infrastructure as they start the development of these communities – our roads as well as parks, sports fields, etc. The issue of water in Richmond, in particular, is a big concern as these developments plan to use deep community wells. The developers must be held responsible that if this causes an issue for the present residents’ wells, that they will be responsible and made to rectify those issues. 2. For changes in governance, we must leave local issues to local residents. With the strong community associations that are in place in the various villages of our ward, we can work together with the communities to have the issues dealt with. If we can have standard guidelines in place for repairing roads, maintenance issues and traffic calming measures, then these can be dealt with automatically as they arise, instead of wasting time at the city council table. 3. First and foremost, landowner rights must be protected. Designations must not be changed on landowners due to the change in development in the surrounding areas. Wetlands do not just become wetlands. In many cases, the landowners have their retirements tied up in their property value. When these designations change, this can decimate families and put more of a burden on society than necessary. Landowner rights must be protected.

Bruce Webster BIO - Bruce Webster, a resident of Richmond for 40 years, served as president of the Richmond Village Association from 2003 until earlier this year. He also has been president of the Rural Council of Ottawa Carleton since 2006 and a member of the city of Ottawa’s Rural Issues Advisory Committee since 2004. He was deeply involved with the Rural Summit, being a member of the task force which organized it.

1. City council has unfettered discretion to control investment in infrastructure without fear of being overruled by the Ontario Municipal Board. Development does not pay for itself as demonstrated in the last three city budgets: 22 percent of all tax dollars were spent to support development. Recreational and educational investment lags behind. Villages need to mature into sustainable towns, not an aging settlement with a suburb attached. By controlling capital investment better we will build sustainable communities and serve taxpayers better. 2. We continue to struggle with “one size fits all” problems. Our administration is too big and too expensive. Every councillor is tasked with every city decision regardless of its “local” or “general” nature. Committees are organized by city function rather than on geographic lines. We need to organize them into sub-groups which will be devoted to service rural, suburban and inner city areas.

Implementing new roads to reduce pressure on current arteries Our city is changing… is essential in welcoming these developments. For example, the widening of Eagleson and developing a new road north of and parallel to Perth Street would assist in diverting the Mattamy traffic. In Manotick, a First Line Road extension would alleviate pressure from Prince of Wales and Bankfield and help the rush hour commute. Furthermore, new infrastructure on either end of Hunt Club Road will contribute to less truck traffic and allow the potential for truck restrictions during peak hours. 2.

Durie, Carol Aug 31, 1943-Aug. 20, 2010 After a courageous fight with cancer, Carol (Chapman) Durie lost her battle on Aug. 20, 2010. Born in St. Catherines, ON, raised in Toronto where she attended Earl Haig Collegiate. A dedicated teacher, coach and mentor for 20+ years with UCDSB, a successful business owner of Gaelic Glen Stables and the greatest fan of her beloved grandchildren, Carol enjoyed life to the max. As witnessed by the 1000+ who attended her visitation, she will be sorely missed. She is survived by her loving husband of 46 years Gary, her children Suzanne (Mike) and Todd (Stacey). Much loved Nanna to Bryson, Ashton, Cameron, Billy and Caitlyn. The family would like say a special thank you to Royal Lepage Real Estate for all their support, the extended family of teachers who made the last period of her life so much brighter and Dr. Blake and staff whose persistence and dedication are greatly appreciated.

But keep going. IN MEMORIAM

After a few seconds your lungs begin to strain, your head aches, and your palms start to sweat. Remember, you can stop when you’ve had enough. But people with cystic fibrosis can’t.

It’s how they live every day...

Dolan, Jim April 15, 1922-Oct. 24, 2000 I wish heaven had a phone so I could hear your voice again. I thought of you today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday and the days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All I have are memories and a picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake, from which I’ll never part... God has you....in his arms, I have you in my heart. Bonnie, Richard, Earl, Rose and Jim, Ann and Henry, David and especially me, Jilly. We miss you very much.

Kemptville Advance - OCTOBER 21, 2010

The


Kemptville campus helps Tanzania school KRISTY WALLACE kristy.wallace@metroland.com

The majority of people living in Tanzania are small-scale farmers. Now, the University of Guelph Kemptville Campus is one of three schools in Canada helping Tanzanians improve their farming practices. Four officials from Kihonda College in Tanzania were recently at the campus as part of a twoyear international project called Education for Employment. “We have a lot to share with our people back home,” said Ed-

ward Henry Maghali, human resources manager with Kihonda College. Education for Employment is aimed at providing competencybased vocational training in agriculture for informal sectors of the economy. It also helps with communitybased training in entrepreneurial skills. The University of Guelph Kemptville Campus is in national partnerships with Lakeland, Carlton Trail and Olds colleges in two separate international development projects in Tanzania. Kemptville Campus is the lead

institution for Education for Employment with the Kihonda college project. And, it is a partner institution for the Ministry of Agriculture Training Institution – Uyole project. Dr. Don Mercer, Patti Goodman, and Patricia Remillard make up the Kemptville team. “Kihonda is one of 12 Vocational Education and Training Institutions in Tanzania, and it is hoped that they will provide a model in competency-based training in agriculture,” said Remillard. “And, that core programming

developed though this initiative can and will be replicated throughout all [training institutions] across the country.” Dr. Claude Naud, director for the University of Guelph Kemptville Campus, said the focus of this initiative is to help improve the lives of people all over the world. “This is a great opportunity to become more aware of challenges facing other nations,” said Naud. “In terms of dialogue, it will assist in the process to find solutions.” The four college officials from

Tanzania included the school’s principal, human resources manager and two teachers. They said they looking forward to bringing the tools Canada equipped them with back to Tanzania – literally. “A lot of the technological advancements here are good,” said Maghali. “On big farms, we want these types of machines.” In addition, Maghali said the group’s time in Canada taught them values about everyday life that they also hope to bring back to their country. “Canadians are good people,” he said with a smile.
