The MessengerNEWS Nepean-Carleton MP Pierre Poilievre listens to the orders of the day at a simulation of the war in Afghanistan at Camp Wainwright in Alberta. Poilievre was embedded with the Van Doos, the Royal 22nd Regiment for three days.

Poilievre returns home from Afghanistan war exercise By Bev McRae Pierre Poilievre sits, cramped, inside the light armored vehicle, as the patrol motors towards the scene of a roadside bomb blast. An Afghan police vehicle is in flames. There appear to be several bodies on the ground. Afghanis are shouting and waving the Canadian soldiers over to help. The Nepean-Carleton MP doesn’t understand the language, but fear has no mother tongue. He can feel the tension, sense the danger. Are the strangers police or Taliban trying to lure the soldiers to certain death?

The Canadians ascertain that the Afghanis are police and hurry to offer medical assistance. Poilievre is not in Afghanistan. He is embedded with the famed Royal 22nd Regiment of Quebec, the Van Doos, on a military exercise at CFB Wainwright – an exercise that is as real to the war in Afghanistan as the Canadian Forces can make it. Situated in rural Alberta, CFB Wainwright is the major training area for all Canadian troops deployed to Afghanistan. The landscape is similar – grassy plain and low-lying hills. The military has

constructed Afghan-like villages, an army camp, roads and outposts. Actors of Afghan or Muslim descent who are able to speak Farsi, Dari or Pashto portray Afghan villagers, mullahs, translators. The exercise is so realistic that amputees have been hired to portray the dead and wounded. Thousands of Canadian troops spend six to eight weeks at Wainwright, training for the war in Afghanistan, adapting to the geographical and cultural terrain. The Van Doos and the Fifth Regiment spent the summer are preparing for their deployment

to Panjwaii District in Afghanistan, where Canadian troops fight Taliban insurgents every day for control of the area. “They use six to eight scenarios,� said Poilievre, who spent three days at Wainwright, “that are designed to exercise the entire battle group. It could be a reenactment of a meeting with a tribal chief, or reconnaissance to hunt down a person of interest suspected of being Taliban. We got nightly briefings on the profiles of participants and on story lines. It’s not just target practice.�

The MessengerNEWS POILIEVRE continues from page 2 Poilievre and two other MPs were embedded with the Van Doos as part of the Canadian Forces Parliamentary Program (CFPP), which allows parliamentarians to spend up to five days with the Navy, Army or Air Force in the summer months, often during major exercises. It’s a hands-on experience for senators and MPs, not a VIP visit. “I was outfitted with army fatigues, boots, a helmet, gloves and a fleece for the extreme cold,� said Poilievre. “I stayed in the barracks, slept on a cot and ate field rations like macaroni and beef, vacuum packed. It tasted like hamburger helper, not too bad.� The MP’s real life military experience did not include weapons, however. The closest Poilievre got to a gun was artillery practice. “I did fire a 20-foot long howitzer that launched a 105 mm shell. The power that comes out of the gun is massive. It almost knocked me off my feet and my ears were ringing for hours afterwards,� said the MP. Poilievre and the other MPs also experienced some of the armed forces’ other technology first hand. “When we arrived, we took a tour of CFB Wainwright and its four bases in a Griffin helicopter,� he said. “On the second day we inspected the Cougar armored vehicles. They have a v-shaped bottom to deflect a land mine blast sideways instead of up through the core of the vehicle.� Poilievre developed even more appreciation for the value of military equipment when he tried his hand at the controls of a computerized robot used to clear fields of land mines and roadside bombs. “It’s tricky,� he said. “It took me five minutes to pick up a bottle.� The value of the CFPP trips is twofold, Poilievre says. First, MPs get a sense of why the Conservative government has spent billions in the last four years upgrading

the Canadian Forces’ equipment. “In the House of Commons we’re often asked to decide on very expensive equipment purchases,� he said. “We get detailed briefings but never really have the tangible feeling of its use because we’re on Parliament Hill not in a theatre of operations. Seeing that equipment in battlefield conditions reinforces why the forces really need it and why it matters.� Secondly, says Poilievre, the trip to Wainwright provides insight into what life is really like for Canadian troops in war conditions. “It gave me a picture of the physical and psychological challenges soldiers encounter over in Afghanistan. We know about the war wounds and the gunfire, but we don’t understand the daily grind, the stress of twisting, bending and folding your body to fit inside an LAV, the strain of carrying a 100-pound pack every day, or sleeping on a cot for 100 nights, surviving the extreme heat and extreme cold, standing near the massive blasts of the

He was impressed, he says, with the toughness, the strength and stamina of the Canadian soldiers. “They are very impressive physical specimens,� he said, “but the most important muscle

is between the ears and these soldiers are very smart and very well educated. There’s a lot of brainpower in that group.� The Canadian troops are inspiring, says

Poilievre. Despite the harsh conditions of the war in Afghanistan and the prospect of missing their families for months, “I didn’t hear one complaint for the three days I was there.�

The MessengerELECTION 2010


Rideau-Goulbourn candidates field your questions


n Part 1 of our two-part series, candidates in the Rideau-Goulbourn Ward give us their answers to questions submitted at the recent Manotick Village Community Association All-Canadidates meeting

Question 1: The City of Ottawa purchased the buildings of Dickinson Square for $2.4 million dollars. By City Council direction, this money must be returned to the City through the purchase or prepaid long term lease of these buildings. Given that Dickinson House is a key building in the Square, how do you think Dickinson House should be used by the community, that would be self-sustaining and provide income to help in the repayment of these funds to the City?

Glenn Brooks: Like the Mill, Dickinson House is the key to future tourism in the Village of Manotick. Thus, the renovations to the building must begin immediately and I have pledged myself to that task. Presently, the building is being used by the Rideau Historical Society and their programs are well received by the general public. Until business and work plans are developed, it is simply impossible to determine the building’s use go-

ing forward. That Plan ought to be ready for community discussion (input) within the next 6 months.

Bruce Chrustie: I believe the community should work towards submitting suggestions of what types of businesses they would like to see in Dickinson House. The village of Merrickville has several excellent examples of turning such houses into businesses that retain the character of the community. As a candidate I feel that I have the best experience in working to produce a viable business plan to draw in potential businesses and ensure we repay the funds.

Iain McCallum: Realistically, I don’t see how, as a stand alone venture, it can pay back the $2.4 million. We need to integrate it together with the Mill and the whole of Dickinson Square by promoting it for events, like the ones that are already there now. Then we could work to pay back the money. It is a good thing that

the City of Ottawa bought it, as it is a heritage site that needs to be preserved. So we need to work to promote the square and the whole Village of Manotick as a tourist and

couldn’t become a similar entity, thus ensuring funds for the preservation of Dickinson House as a historical museum of what Manotick once was.

it now stands is that the city owns the square as a heritage protected area and would like to see a return on investment. Purchase would therefore be a revetment to the private ownership as before which the city purchase was intended to protect against. Hence, I see the only method of maximizing the Dickinson House as a rev-

event destination.

Scott Moffatt

Bruce Webster:

I believe the best way to preserve the Square and Dickinson House, itself, would be to set up something similar to the Billings Estate. The City should promote the Square as one of its heritage sites. The Billings Estate charges admission and rents out space for events. There is no reason why Dickinson Square

The question seems to be somewhat ambiguous in the statement of purchase or long term lease. My understanding of the situation as

corporate all of the square as a village life type example during the Summer and could also be rented out for special occasions such as weddings. I would also note that this is a heritage designated property and area and if the city is in need of funds to support this and other deemed valuable lands/ structures that the city could sell other vacant tracts to offset the costs of acquiring such properties as these. Question 2: Ottawa has a $34 billion investment in infrastructure that taxpayers expect to see protected, just as they protect their own investments in their homes and automobiles with regular preventative maintenance and replacement.We all hear about the importance of electing a Mayor and Council that has vision and makes fiscally responsible decisions that they follow through with. What will you do to ensure that the infrastructure Renewal Deficit is reduced?

Glenn Brooks: Council adopted Councillor Humeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two per cent levee (2008) dedicated funding for infrastructure renewal. I supported that motion and shall continue to do so. It is absolutely essential that our infrastructure is maintained and improved.

Bruce Chrustie: Ottawa has a very adhoc approach to development charges and at times it seems as though we are not properly funding our infrastructure requirements through these development charges. In fact, Ottawa has some of the lowest development charges of comparable cities. Often we hear how City Councillors are in the pocket book of developers and we need to start to remove this burden from the taxpayer back onto where it should be. Growth is expected and yet given the size of the City of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s various planning and infrastructure departments leads me to believe we are doing a very poor job of proper prioritization. Specifically I will work to ensure that we start recovering the cost of growth from the development charges and not the general taxpayer population.

Iain McCallum: I agree wholeheartedly that we have to have a proper preventative maintenance schedule. Unforeseen circumstances will arise, but generally we must have proper maintenance schedule of our infrastructure and stick to the schedule. As in your car, when you abide by the proper maintenance schedule to replace your oil, you can extend the life of your major engine repairs. As my little Scottish mum says â&#x20AC;&#x153;An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.â&#x20AC;?

Scott Moffatt: Being a City Councillor is about making tough decisions, and being a leader. Residents here, and in other rural communities, demand value for their tax dollars. Core, essential services need to be the priority when it comes to city spending. If ensuring enough money is readily available for infrastructure renewal means less spending in other areas, I am prepared

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2010 Page 5

The MessengerELECTION 2010 to make that choice. I will work toward extending the stimulus money from the federal government, and if that ceases to be an option, then it is up to the city to make this a true priority.

Bruce Webster: Once again, we are faced with a city which does not truly understand the definition of BUDGET and until we can work to a true budget we will always be trying to catch up. I cite as one example the 22 per cent of your taxes which go towards â&#x20AC;&#x153;Growth related infrastructureâ&#x20AC;?( ref. city website) wherein we are effectively subsidising developer Conclusion. Petition the province to change the development rate structure so it would become a true reflection of public versus private for profit costs. The city for some reason is in awe of the Queens Park oversight of OUR affairs

Bruce Chrustie: I think that both architecture and density play a role in both feel and tone of the village. Given that a retirement home is going to increase the density, we can work to ensure the architecture fits within

Bruce Webster: The city has erred in the application of â&#x20AC;&#x153;one size fits allâ&#x20AC;? in this case by using for example the

Iain McCallum, on the proposed high-density seniorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s apartment building in Manotick

Glenn Brooks: Our Secondary Plan and the Official Plan of the City allows for this senior residence to be located on the site. We have held several public meeting with the community. Further the Manotick Village Community Association appear to support the proposal. I firmly believe that this facility is needed and will be well received within the greater village.

surroundings in which to live. I do not believe this land use meets those criteria. Question 4: How will you improve public transit in the Ward?

Glenn Brooks: Public transit will lag other modes of transportation until external forces (gas prices) create the need. When that occurs, the City must be ready to provide affordable, reliable transit options. In-village Park and Ride facilities for passengers and a system to get passengers to the proposed LRT and BRT systems within a reasonable timeframe.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;This location will cause many difďŹ culties with such things as vehicular and pedestrian trafďŹ c at that juncture in the Village.â&#x20AC;?

Question 3: Our Secondary Plan states that Manotick and Bridge St. are to be low density residential. Now a huge, three-story apartment building is proposed. This is high density and will be as large as the independent grocers and three stories high. Do you think that this proposed â&#x20AC;&#x153;retirement homeâ&#x20AC;? is consistent with the feel and tone of the village?

a choice and such depend on pubilc transport. This clearly is not the case for this proposal and hence I am opposed to any changes which will add to the congestion on Bridge St. Seniors need safe, accessible, comfortable

items that we can use to our advantage to ensure development is controlled. I will work with our traffic planners to come up with viable solutions for congestion and until that happens we should be restraining high density development.

Iain McCallum: It is unfortunate that as it stands now, it has already been approved with disregard to the Secondary Plan. This location will cause many difficulties with such things as vehicular and pedestrian traffic at that juncture in the Village. In the future, we will need to pay attention to the planning that has been made.

Bruce Chrustie: There are a couple key points of consideration. Public transit in a village setting will never be

Iain McCallum: Public transportation in this Ward is a major issue in some of the larger villages, such as Munster, Manotick, Fallowfield Village, Richmond, Kars. We need to continually work with the ridership to come up with the best solutions for scheduling as well as the types of vehicles that are used. I do not think that a tunnel in the downtown area will solve any of the traffic volume issues that we deal with on a daily basis. We need a viable system such as the heavy rail/ Go-train system to move people in and out of the City, not through the City to relieve the congestion on the 417 East and West as well as the traffic coming from the South.

CANDIDATES continues on page 7




Scott Moffatt: Still in the planning process, I believe this project does have the ability to fit in with the village. The architecture of this building will be an im-

comparable to that which our urban and suburban neighbors enjoy. It is my belief that OC Transpo needs to expand its fleet to take into account the ridership within the villages. Quebec City does have small capacity hybrid buses that they utilize which may make more economic sense for Manotick. We also need to work to increase ridership to ensure that it is sustainable economically and compelling to the OC Transpo management. Within the community we can also work to promote and enable alternatives such as carpooling, even if it is just to the suburban boundary where transit alternatives are much more available.

MessengerEditorial Steady as she goes


NDP shooting daggers into McGuinty government could probably count the number of times that we have applauded the NDP â&#x20AC;&#x201C; either federally or provincially â&#x20AC;&#x201C; on, well, about zero hands. But NDP provincial leader Andrea Horvath has been relentlessly chipping away at the McGuinty government and the HST fiasco. In fact, while local MPP Lisa MacLeod has been spitting out fire and brimstone, as she did at her campaign launch with Tory leader Tim Hudak last week, Horvath and the NDP have been operating a very aggressive, yet controlled campaign on the latest tax grab. There are two big obstacles that MacLeod and Hudak face on this seemingly endless game of Blame-McGuinty-for-everything. The first is that, according to many insiders, McGuintyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s HST plan was mandated by the federal Conservative government. Was it? Was it not? We, the common people, will never really know for sure. But the perception is out there that Ontario and B.C. were given the direction by the Harper government. The second obstacle is that, despite the aggressive opposition and the cries of violation, Hudak has no immediate plans to reverse the HST if elected. He said in an interview with us earlier this year that he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. The legislation to make the change, he said, would take five years to go through. So, if thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the case, should we not just move on and start hammering at McGuinty for something else? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not like they have a shortage of material. But Horvath, meanwhile, has taken a less animated and possibly a more effective approach to the HST. Her finance critic, Peter Taubins, announced last week that despite McGuintyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s promise of an additional 600,000 jobs because of the tax, the real result in Ontario has been the loss of 30,000 jobs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thirty-thousand more people are looking for work this Fall and all the Premier can offer is empty promises,â&#x20AC;? said Tabuns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;McGuintyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new tax on everything from keeping the lights on to filling up has been bad for families and bad for jobs.â&#x20AC;? Statistics Canada reported last week that 23,000 jobs in Ontario were lost in September, including nearly 13,000 full-time jobs. The unemployment rate remained unchanged as young people stopped looking for summer work and went back to school. Since the introduction of the HST on July 1, Ontario has lost more than 30,000 jobs and the unemployment has risen to 8.8 per cent from 8.3 per cent. The devastation has not hit Eastern Ontario as hard as it has hit southern Ontario. The unemployment rate is now 9.2 per cent in Toronto, 9.7 per cent in St. Catharines-Niagara, 10.0 per cent in Sudbury, 10.6 per cent in Oshawa and 10.9 per cent in Windsor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not only are Ontario families paying hundreds of dollars more for the basics, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re seeing fewer opportunities for jobs,â&#x20AC;? noted Tabuns. Recent reports by RBC and the Conference Board show that Ontario has the lowest consumer confidence in the country, and TD Economics says the HST is a â&#x20AC;&#x153;headwind restraining growth.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The HST dampened the confidence Ontario families had in the economy,â&#x20AC;? added Tabuns. Regardless of who is pointing fingers, the HST has been a failure. It has been nice for the opposing parties to point this out to us. But this is Hudakâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest challenge. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to point fingers. But will he offer solutions and alternatives? He could start with a plan to get us out of this burdensome tax. Jeffrey Morris

The MessengerELECTION 2010

CANDIDATES continues from page 5 Scott Moffatt: With community growth, we will see growth in the transit system in our growing communities. For those who are not serviced by public transit south of Manotick, we need a solution. My proposal would include a service station development at the commercially zoned corner of the 416 and Roger Stevens Drive which could host a Parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Ride to service the Kars, North Gower and outlying area.

Bruce Webster: Bruce Webster did not answer this question. Question 5: Suburban and rual residents will be forced to take a bus to the edge of the core where LRT is proposed. Do you support extending the O-Train on existing rail to reach every corner of the municipality?

Glenn Brooks: It has always been the long-term plan of the Master Transportation Plan (MTP) to extend LRT outward from the core. Rapid Bus Transit will be needed certainly in the rural areas where LRT isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Further, heavy rail needs to be further explored with VIA and CN.

Bruce Chrustie: No. It is simply not economically viable. Given that approximately 80 per cent of Ottawa is in a rural area, it does not make sense. What I do not agree with in the current LRT plan is that it will only make its way to Algonquin College for the west end residents and will be BRT beyond that. At a minimium LRT should extend out to Stittsville in the west.

Iain McCallum: The LRT in my opinion does not go East and West atleast not far enough East and West to deal with major traffic issues that we

have in the City. I do agree with the idea of the Otrain extending South to areas that would make use of the system, such as beyond the City limits South, East and West. Ultimately, in due time, I would like to see it extend to places such as Brockville in the South, Carleton Place in the West and Rockland in the East. As I see, the only way to deal with the abundance of traffic on our roads is to provide a viable option for these people who, must drive now, to leave their cars at home.

Question 6: What do you think of Glenn Brooksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; proposed Borough Model?

Francis/ Loubert LLP






â&#x20AC;˘ Urban Core issues â&#x20AC;˘ Suburban issues â&#x20AC;˘ Rural issues We need a model that is implementable by a risk adverse council, and why I have proposed this as a starting point.

Iain McCallum:

from the Agricultural and Rural Affairs Committee. By giving more autonomy to ARAC, we achieve greater power to get things done in a timelier manner. This also frees up City Council to deal with the bigger issues. The Borough Model has no support at City Council and will never be the answer. We need effective, fair leadership now and we can achieve this through an autonomous ARAC.

Bruce Webster:

Borough system of governance is supported by the majority of RideauGoulbourn Community. It is NOT another level of government! It is a governance model that encourages greater public participation â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the foundation of democracy!

Bruce Chrustie: I do not think he has the model right at all. He has had 5 years to get Council approval and it simply has not happened, zero success. While it is at best a Ward sub-council, it is not a Borough. A true Borough system would be made up of several Wards in joint decision making. In my proposed


model, bylaws would be passed and voted on by segments including: â&#x20AC;˘ Ottawa wide regional issues


(Service available in English, French, German & Arabic)



The Borough System, in the past we have seen boroughs become small cities and small cities become amalgamated cities. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think that need to go back and start this all over again. With the strong community associations that are in place in the towns and villages in our ward, we can work together to have everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concerns and issues dealt with, in a timely and appropriate manner. The borough system will become another layer of government that will be accountable to nobody, a group of unelected people that will have no power/rights at City Council.

Scott Moffatt: An unelected and unaccountable body is an inefficient solution to a lack of representation and leadership. We need leadership from our rural councillors and we need more power and control

I believe that if after 2 years and 20 plus meetings an organization should have demonstrated its value and necessity. The Ward 21 council, composed of now some 25 members (down from over 80 as originally proposed) has passed only ONE motion which was not an original motion but a copy of othersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; work. The use of dedicated people and their time in this fashion seems to be a waste of good talent and time and is symptomatic of bureaucracy gone wild, building layers of protection and levels of unnecessary staff to support the waste of our taxes Ottawa needs councillors who will reduce not add to our tax burden and representatives who will work to make Ottawa a whole city not a city divided. Yes we need to address our differences but not in a divisive manner. Broadband is an example of the Officer of Rural Affairs working as a result of The TWO RURAL SUMMITS to bring urban quality internet to the Rural and Village areas This was NOT crafted by the councillor for ward 21 but was done by the citizens of Ottawa working in a constructive collective way!

What started as a mission for Kelly Ross to find information on safety for her own kids is now benefitting children and families throughout the region. On her quest for information online, Ross came across Kid Proof Canada, an organization devoted to teaching children about safety both at home and in public. She was interested in the organization and the material they provide for children, and she would become an instructor. Last year, she took over the Ottawa-Carleton area as a franchise owner and operator. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remember going online to find information because I wanted to educate my children,â&#x20AC;? said Ross. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I found was Kid Proof Canada.â&#x20AC;? Ross started out with courses in the community room at Rossâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Your Independent Grocer, the store she and her husband, Ken, operate in Barrhaven. The classes have been popular and they have grown. She now has classes not just at their store in Barrhaven, but also at Moncionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Your Independent Grocer in Riverside South and in Kanata and Orleans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Barrhaven courses are always full, and now we are starting to expand out to Riverside South and other parts of the city,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have had a lot of interest from kids in Manotick, Osgoode and Greely for

Geared toward children aged seven to 10, the class prepares children for the occasions when they find themselves at home alone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We cover safety, what to do in an emergency, how to call 911, first aid, what to do if you have lost your key, things like that,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a preventative and pro-active course that is really good for kids who may be alone before or after school.â&#x20AC;? The Home Alone course is just one of several offered through the Kid Proof Canada program. Also offered is a babysitting and first aid course for young teens 10 and up, which covers everything from how to babysit to how to prepare a resume and look for a babysitting job, to how to change a diaper and how to prevent accidents. For girls aged 11-14 years, there is a course called A Girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Way, which focuses on how to handle peer pressure and the transition from elementary to middle school and high school. Changing social environments and maintaining a healthy and positive attitude toward oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s self are key components of the course.

The MessengerNEWS McLeod, Hudak promise “good-bye party” for McGuinty government Ontario now a have-not province of have-not households By Bev McRae Voters in Ontario will have a chance to restore the province as a powerhouse in Confederation from its current status as a have-not province of have-not households, promised provincial Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak, as the Tories kicked off their election campaign in Nepean on Wed., Oct. 6. “We are here tonight to say enough is enough,” the Leader of the Opposition told the crowd of several hundred cheering PC supporters at the Nepean Sportsplex. “Ontario families want change. They need change. And one year from tonight, to the very day, we will deliver that change.” Hudak was guest speaker at Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa MacLeod’s nomination meeting as the Progressive Conservative candidate in the Oct. 6, 2011 provincial election. “Ontario is swimming in debt,” said Hudak,

“Good paying jobs have fled our borders. And, once the engine of confederation, Ontario is now a have-not province. But worse yet, after seven years of higher taxes, higher fees, higher hydro bills, higher auto insurance and tuition, we now have a province of havenot households.” Families say they just can’t afford it anymore, he said, urging PC supporters to work harder than ever in the election campaign, warning that the Liberals will “pull out all the stops to try and steal this election.” The Liberals’ multimillion dollar attack ad campaign, bought by the Working Families Coalition, shows that the McGuinty government speaks for special interest groups, not for hard working families who pay the bills, Hudak said. There is no better place to celebrate the one-year countdown to Dalton McGuinty’s godbye party, he said, than Nepean-Carleton. “We will put forward

a plan to govern Ontario that will put families first, get government focussed on the basics again and make job creation a priority,” he said. MacLeod was acclaimed for the third time. She was first elected in a by-election in 2206 and won the seat in the 2007 election with the highest vote total of any PC candidate in the province. MacLeod is one of the best legislators at Queen’s Park, the PC leader said, “putting it to the Liberals each and every day for all of their tax hikes, for all of their broken promises, for all of their pie-eyed, ill-conceived, energy schemes and for all of their chocolate-milk-banning, bake-sale-cancelling, sex-ed-for-six-year-olds, promoting-dandelionpolicing ideas.” That is why he gave her the most challenging portfolio as critic for accountability and revenue, he said. “The biggest issues in this campaign are

pocketbook issues,” said MacLeod, “like the greedy HST grab, unaffordable hydro rates, and mismanaged government agencies like E-health and the cancer care centre.” Ontario voters will have a choice in next year’s election, she promised, between a Progressive Conservative Party that believes in strong families, tax relief and self-reliance and a Liberal government of high

taxes and scandals. McLeod and Hudak have been critical of the provincial government’s $7 billion Samsung consortium deal to build wind and solar farms over the next 20 years. With energy bills recently spiking 17 per cent across the province, Hudak promised that a Tory government would pursue a dramatically different energy strategy. “We would invest in

nuclear power and hydro-electricity, clean and green fuels that aren’t going to chase seniors from their homes or turn the lights out on businesses across our province,” Hudak said. The Ontario PC caucus has launched its Have Your Say, Ontario survey at, asking residents what their answers are to job creation, social programs and taxes.

ITR Dinner Theatre returns Oct. 30 with show in Osgoode By Andrea Jermacans Isle in the River Reviewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dinner theatre is back by popular demand this fall. After a year-long hiatus and some serious number-crunching by the theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive committee, the tradition continues for Jitters, a three-act comedy directed by Len Trembley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We needed to see if it was feasible to have a dinner theatre without losing our shirts,â&#x20AC;? explains Second Vice-President, Lynn Jolicoeur. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For awhile it was done by a family member of one of the executive team and he did it basically for free. But now heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s retired so it was tough to replace him while keeping ticket prices reasonable for the audience.â&#x20AC;? The dinner theatre begins at 6 p.m. on Saturday, October 30, at the Osgoode Community Centre. Tickets are $45 per person and include the 8 p.m. performance. The dinner will be

prepared and served by students from the Kemptville campus of the University of Guelph. The buffet selection will feature hip of beef, fresh baked rolls, three salad choices, coffee, tea, and dessert. As usual, ITRâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cash bar will also be open serving beer, wine, soft drinks, chocolate bars and chips. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These students are the same ones who put on the Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Feast at Osgoodeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Medieval Festival this year,â&#x20AC;? says Jolicoeur. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard nothing but positives from people who have eaten their food before. I think people will be happy with it. The presentation should be nice.â&#x20AC;? Jolicoeur adds that because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re students, the University was able to offer ITR great rates. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They provide everything, like dishes, cutlery and staff, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard for other companies or individuals to do on our budget. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big expense,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think this is great because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re basically supporting our

local students.â&#x20AC;? Plus, she adds, combining dinner with a show makes for a jovial audience and a relaxed atmosphere. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to rush home and have supper first. You can just make yourself beautiful then get to the community centre, sit down and take it easy,â&#x20AC;? says Jolicoeur. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dinner is already made for you. Just have a glass of wine and enjoy the show.â&#x20AC;? Jolicoeur says several of ITRâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s patrons said they missed having a dinner theatre in the last year, including a corporate sponsor that traditionally uses the event to host its annual staff party. She organized the event, but Jolicoeur herself wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be dining this season â&#x20AC;&#x201C; sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be too busy playing Jessica, the female lead in Jitters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So have a drink and a slice of beef for me,â&#x20AC;? she laughs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to have any.â&#x20AC;? To reserve tickets, call 613-860-1291 and leave a message.

horoscopeS 30)9(:LW[6J[

Libra, your love life is full of complicated patterns and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not quite sure in which direction to go. Talk to your partner and find out what he or she desires.


Scorpio, you could find that all thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needed is a small spark to rekindle a big flame in the romance department. Focus a lot of energy on your love life this week.



Aries, you must express a great deal of passion in your heart. Find that special someone and let him or her know just how you feel.


Trust your instincts, Taurus, even when it seems they may be holding you back. Realize that you know more than you think and have a good handle on the situation.


Sagittarius, you have been going to extremes in your life as of late. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be that way, though. Mellow out and take a more centralized approach.

Gemini, now is the time to take a trip with a friend or loved one. You need a break from reality, and this is your chance to get away for awhile. Expect work when you get back, though.





70:*,:-LI 4HY


Capricorn, avoid questioning the motivations of others this week. Pay such thoughts no mind at all. As long as you trust your instincts, all will work out.

Aquarius, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get swept up in old patterns. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to try something new and gain a fresh perspective on your life. All it will take is a few minor changes.

Pisces, you have a great deal of energy but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know where to focus it. Why not visit a friend and spend time together?


Cancer, seize the day and make the most of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at hand. Get outdoors, socialize and be adventurous. You will enjoy what happens as a result. Thursday is a power day for you.

Things flow very well for you this week, Leo. Where issues of love and beauty are concerned, you will find great success. Watch out for Aquarius in the days to come.

Go for the gold, Virgo. Sitting back and doing nothing this week will get you nowhere. Feel free to experiment with things you enjoy or want to try.

The MessengerNEWS The Appeal of Cenotaphs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Part 1 Key Club at South Carleton

Across Canada, there are more than 6,000 war memorials found in communities large and small. They come in different shapes and sizes and can be seen at street side, in a park or cemetery. Their structure can be a variety of stone, iron, marble or bronze, some of simple design, some bearing inspiring sculpture. All focus on the great human sacrifice in time of war. When our war memorials draw the attention of the young child or the visitor from a distant land they may ask: â&#x20AC;&#x153;What do these memorials mean to you?â&#x20AC;? Basically they signify a communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tribute to local people who sacrificed their lives in armed conflict, in pursuit of peace and in defense of values precious to a free people. Names of the fallen may be inscribed o the memorial; they remind us of sons and daughters, husbands and wives who never came home


GOOD LIFE by Larry Ellis

from distant battles. A war memorial also represents the grief of a community and the resolve that the fallen shall never be forgotten. Federal Governments did not plan nor fund these community memorials. If such had been the case they would in all likelihood be of the same size and design across the land. After the end of World War 1 communities began to think of erecting suitable memorials in honour of the men and women who gave their lives. The projects, would of necessity, involve considerable planning in terms of location, design, consultation and not least the raising of funds, the latter aspect largely determined what may be possible.

can imagine the arguments that sometimes delayed the progress. The axioms on cenotaphs are as varied as the epitaphs. One town we know of has the words â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peace on earth, good will to menâ&#x20AC;? and others have the simple statement â&#x20AC;&#x153;They died for peace; let us live for itâ&#x20AC;?. As we approach Remembrance Day, we remember the thousands who died and many more thousands injured during the two World Wars, the Korean War, Afghanistan and Peace-keeping rolls around the world. Today we are in the midst of a different kind of conflict, one with known and unknown enemies of democracy. Try and attend a November 11th Remembrance Day ceremony; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important that you do; encourage the young people to attend and take the children; they need to know the significance of November 11th.


Colombe, Directors, Bob Simpson, Colin Crosbie, Brian Cromie, Claudette Periard, Dave Lochead. The Kiwanis sponsored Key Club at South Carleton High School in Richmond is led by Kiwanians Gail Brooks and Diane Alguire. The Key Club is off to a good start this fall with new members every week; they meet at noon every Tuesday for about an hour. They are a very active group of young people that support local needs; they eagerly embrace leadership roles and feel a deep and genuine enthusiasm for service. They enjoy serving together and socializing, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why this club is like a second family to most members. If you are a parent reading this

and have students attending SCHS, I suggest you encourage them to attend a meeting. We look into the future and what do we see? What does Kiwanis look like? What is it doing? I see a Kiwanis family that is strong in membership, strong in leadership, and most importantly, strong in service. We have what it takes, the passion within each of us to make a difference. We are all fired up! The Kiwanis Club of Manotick invites you to join us as we continue to serve the community; we know that many of you have skills and the desire to help; let us hear from you.

Graovac a playmaking forward with size and vision the nerves and excitement that comes with my first game it was blown away when I scored in my first game. It has been my highlight so far in my career.

Name: Tyler Graovac Hometown: Ontario

Bobby Orr. I never got a chance to see him live but from watching tapes, hearing experiences from my dad I have tried to follow his footsteps by wearing number four in my minor hockey career. Aside from your immediate family, who was the most influential person or coach in your hockey

career before you made it to the OHL and what was something special that they did? I have had a lot of great coaches growing up, some have helped me with my skills and aspect of the game. But most importantly, two brothers that I have known for over a couple years have helped me mentally and made

The MessengerFINANCE How can I plan for my childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s education?


We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stress enough the importance of early planning, but if you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t started yet, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t panic!

The Cost of Learning Funding an education savings plan is one of the most valuable gifts you can give a child or grandchild, but unfortunately, it can also be one of the most expensive. The projected annual cost to attend the average Canadian university for one year (including tuition and room and board) is expected to be more than $24,000 by 2023*. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not alone if you think a financial goal like this seems intimidating or out of reach. But with careful planning and early saving, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be.

ings plan is to estimate how much money youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need. To reach this number, you should take into consideration the type of college or university your child may be interested in, your time horizon and, of course, inflation. Starting early and investing consistently are two key factors to reaching your goal. This is not to say that the only way to reach your goal is to start saving when your child is a newborn. And we also understand that not everyone is able to save hundreds of dollars a month - but that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean sending a child to post-secondary school is any less realistic. If your savings wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to cover all of your education costs, other family members may be able to help and you can also consider student financial aid, scholarships, grants, loans and other programs.
