Vote could save local school JENNIFER MCINTOSH jennifer.mcintosh Parkwood Hills Public Schools parents are breathing a sigh of relief after Ottawa-Carleton District School Board trustees voted to keep the school open at a Jan. 4 committee of the whole meeting. The vote was in response to Barrhaven/Knoxdale-Merivale trustee Mark Fisher’s motion to keep the school open. “I think the committee did a great job making decisions on the basis of the metrics they were given,” he said. But I didn’t see the value of closing a viable program. In the new 2009 Ministry of Education guidelines, enrollment is just one of the factors for measure, it also looks at the benefits to the student and the community.” Fisher added that the province should be looking to model the success of PHPS, which is operating at 95 per cent capacity. The final vote came to the OCDSB regular board meeting on Jan. 12. Nepean This Week went to press before that decision was made. PHPS was one of two schools in the Merivale-Baseline area recommended to close in a staff report released early in October, along with McGregor Easson Public School.

In the Merivale-Baseline area, seven elementary schools could close: McGregor Easson, Carleton Heights, Century, Parkwood Hills, Meadowlands, Sir Winston Churchill and Fielding Drive. Enrolment in the area declined by 1,400 students between 2001 and 2006, and the opening of Longfields Davidson Heights Secondary School is expected to draw away about half of the 600 students at Sir Winston Churchill. “I think regardless of enrollment, we still have a viable program at Sir Winston Churchill as well,” Fisher said, adding that he would be looking into future shared uses and partnership with the City and community groups. PHPS parent, Shannon DavisErmuth, of a committee that surveyed the community in hopes of determining the parents’ actions should the school close, is happy with the decision. “PHPS has become a community school for us,” she said. If the school were to close, the students would be divided up between Sir Winston Churchill and Meadowlands Public School. “We live south of Hunt Club so Meadowlands would not be a community school for us,” DavisErmuth said. Another contention was taking students out of a single-track, early French immersion program and moving them to a untested, dualtrack system at Meadowlands.

Grassroots group working on survey responses for Bayshore action plan NEVIL HUNT Food, traffic and safety topped the list of local issues identified by more than a dozen Bayshore residents who took part in a focus group that met for more than

two hours on Saturday, Jan. 9. Staff from the Pinecrest-Queensway Community Health Centre helped launch an action plan discussion, which will try and find solutions after focus groups and a community-wide survey identified key issues. Food is the number one issue because

the roughly 7,000 residents of Bayshore have no grocery store nearby. The shopping centre has been home to grocery chains in the past, but each has closed. The nearest fresh food store – near the corner of Richmond Road and Carling Avenue – also closed, making Lincoln Fields and Bells Corners the closest op-

tions. One resident suggested shuttle buses between Bayshore and the grocery stores may be an answer, while others suggested Bayshore Shopping Centre host a new grocery store or bulk food store. See ‘Bayshore’ on page 3.

McGrath targeted victims mostly under the age of 15. The last victim was an 11-year-old girl. The assaults caused many women and young girls in the area to be afraid to leave their houses. McGrath was arrested after police set up command post in Ottawa’s Trend-Arlington park to monitor a suspect wanted in assaults.

The residents, gathered in the Bayshore Public School library, also discussed the possibility of a food co-op or a community kitchen. The latter a concept that sees people meet to cook a communal meal. Larissa Williams of the PQCHC said finding a location for a community kitchen may be impossible without a large investment by the city. She said the Bayshore fieldhouse, located next to the outdoor rink on Woodridge Crescent, isn’t large enough to host many residents, especially if space for childcare is required as adults meet to cook. The volume and speed of cars on local streets was the second most important issue for the people at the meeting. “It would be nice if there was some way to make the cars go 40 (kilometres per hour),” said resident Debora Percival, referring to the posted speed limit on Bayshore Drive and Woodridge Crescent. Residents also discussed the need for more pedestrian crosswalks and longer walk signals at the exisiting crosswalks. A city staff member at the meeting said a new crosswalk is being considered for Woodridge near the new Transitway stop. At least two residents expressed the opinion that crime and safety has improved in recent years. Some called for more patrols by the security staff provided by the landlord, Minto. Another concept discussed was multiculturalism. Suggestions ranged from a cultural conference to a music festival celebrating the diversity of the community. This idea may become part of the annual Bayshore Fun Days. The other issues identified included * garbage, * community programs, * childcare. Jyoti Singh facilitated the meeting on behalf of the

She said the centre’s location makes it more challenging to help locally. “The best way to provide a service is to be in the community, but we’re four kilometres away,” she said, referring to the centre’s home near Lincoln Fields.

can’t afford it. I have seen plans to clean the river for $130 million. That would be about 60 to 65 per cent run off, but it’s something I can live with.” Mark Taylor, the other candidate to throw his hat in the ring, says he wants to look at ways to bring and keep business in the ward. His campaign launch at Shoeless Joe’s on Jan. 6 was a testament to that principle. The owners of Shoeless Joe’s, in the parking lot of the Coliseum Movie Theatre, moved there despite being warned about the neighbourhood of Michele Heights. “About half of the staff is employed from the immediate area,” Taylor said. “And it has become a real draw to the community; people are coming from all over to eat here.” Taylor said the key is getting people into the community so they consider living there. “When people are here, they see it’s close to the Ottawa River and all the amenities we have and they think it wouldn’t be a bad place to live.” Taylor is the alumni relations manager at Algonquin College and is excited to have the opportunity to serve in public office. He said he plans to limit himself to two terms — what he feels is time enough to accomplish the goals he has for the ward. Like Awgu, Taylor said he has already been out pounding the pavement and knocking on the doors to get a sense of where the community would like to see improvements. “At my campaign launch about 175 people attended and no one said, ‘there is a problem with this or that street,’” he said. “The concerns all seemed to be with the city as a whole and taxes.” Taylor said his plans are fiscally conservative and would like to see a more responsibly run city. “Residents will also be pleased to learn that I pledge not to spend tax dollars that we cannot afford and that I am eager to address the challenges currently before city


The next election may be more than 10 months away, but the competition to fill Alex Cullen’s seat in Bay ward is already heating up. Lawyer and vice-president of a real estate and development company called LIKO corporation, Ike Awgu is taking a second run at public office. The 26-year-old ran for Ottawa mayor in 2003, at the age of 19, when he was still studying at Carleton University. “I really had no illusions about winning in that election, I just wanted to raise attention about some issues,” Awgu said. “This time I am quite serious about winning.” Awgu said he thinks change is going to be one of the key elements of the election and he has a lot to offer in terms of new blood at the council table. “I think people are disappointed with council and I could be the change they need,” he said. Awgu said he plans to get out there and get people who traditionally don’t vote to go to the polls this time around. They did a study a while back and the apartments around Bayshore have a 17 per cent voting rate, this means people are not engaging with the process and that’s not good,” he said. “I plan to go knocking on doors and do whatever it takes to let people know what I am about.” Awgu said as part of the younger generation he will be using his website and facebook page, but he knows that it won’t reach many members of the ward. “People going to my facebook page are like preaching to the choir,” he said. “If they go to my page they already like me, and I want to reach a new audience.” For Awgu, there are three key issues for the residents of Bay ward — taxes, crime and cleaning up the Ottawa River. “I think there are two kind of people, the ones that promise they won’t raise taxes and the ones that say we need services so taxes have to be raised,” Awgu said. “I plan to a third type, one who speaks honestly and openly about taxes and practices fiscal responsibility.” One of the things Awgu thinks would benefit the ward are youth programs, like drop-in centres to keep young people busy and off the street so they are less likely to commit crime. “That’s an example of a responsible solution,” he said. “One that would cost a lot less than hiring new police officers.” Awgu also said he would like to focus on the Ottawa River clean up, but see a plan with a less hefty price tag than $2 billion. “It all comes down to whether you want Perrier or toilet water,” he said. “Sure I like Perrier but a lot of people

Thanks to a new model of care, a clinic at the Queensway Carleton Hospital may be able to reduce the wait times for knee and hip surgeries from 18 months to 182 days. The model seeks to improve access to assessment services, placing more diagnostic power into the hands of frontline workers. Originally, patients would be seen by a nurse or physiotherapist, but the diagnosis ultimately had to come from the surgeon. “That will mean that surgeons are only seeing the patients that are absolutely candidates for surgery, which will reduce wait times,” Maureen Sly-Havey, acting project manager of the regional hip and knee replacement program. “Initially we found, only about 60 per cent of the patients assessed really needed surgery. The others were able to be treated with more

conservative methods.” Sly-Havey said thanks to the assessment centre, the QCH is the only hospital in the province that is meeting the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care’s suggested guidelines for knee and hip surgery wait times. The Champlain Local Health Integration Network — a body that coordinates healthcare services from Ottawa to Deep River funded the program at four hospitals — The QCH, the Montfort Hospital, the Ottawa Hospital and Cornwall Community Hospital. As of Jan. 4 physicians can request consults by faxing the regional hip and knee replacement program. If the patient turns out not to be a candidate for surgery, recommendations are sent back to the referring physician. Candidates for surgery can request a specific hospital, surgeon and language or simply go the centre that has the first available space. “The patient becomes much more involved in the care,” Sly-Havey said.

Centrepointe resident Bruce Sanford has been in some of the toughest climates this country has to offer. He has fought frigid temperatures and black flies, doing sedimentary studies and mapping rock formations for the Geological Survey of Canada. For his work, Sanford is one 57 Canadians appointed to the Order of Canada by Gov. Gen. MichaĂŤlle Jean, announced Dec. 30. While he is very excited and honoured to be selected, it is the work that keeps him making contributions to the knowledge of our country’s geological composition. “I love it,â€? he said. “There is always some new discovery, either major or minor — from the ages of the rock to the composition. They tell the stories of the history of the continent.â€? He has been published in scientific journals and has studied the Canadian Shield for salt deposits for Atomic Energy Canada Limited. “That was one assignment, where they were looking to use salt to store high-level nuclear waste, so we identified some areas that would be useful for disposal sites,â€? he said. Despite having been “retiredâ€? for 20 years, Sanford has been in western Quebec, mapping the Potsdam sandstone, writing for scientific journals and getting his PhD in Earth Sciences from the University of Ottawa. Sanford’s love of geology was at first sight.

Sanford has been married for almost 60 years and says that travelling to Hudson’s Bay for research or living in the field for months at a time, was hard on his family, but they survived and will be celebrating another landmark anniversary in July. Sanford feels proud that the work he has done will be a legacy. “A lot of the information we collected off the coast of the Atlantic is still being used to identify possible future oil deposits,â€? he said. Of this latest honour, Sanford said he was, “very excited,â€? to be appointed to the Order of Canada and looks forward to attending the induction ceremony with national celebrities, researchers and politicians. When he attends the order’s induction ceremony alongside local and national celebrities, politicians and researchers, Sanford said, “I’ll be very nervous ‌ But I’ll be thrilled to death.â€?


When Sanford, originally of Princedale, Nova Scotia, returned in 1945 from serving with the Canadian Army in the Second World War, he enrolled in engineering at Acadia University. But when a friend showed him the geological maps and cross-sections he was making for class, Sanford said he

Saluting our police services

Vets deserve better

Some dates stick in our minds because they are tied to tragic events that shake us a group, whether as a community, a city, a nation or a world. Ottawa residents experienced such an event on Dec. 29, 2009, when Ottawa police Const. Ireneusz “Eric” Czapnik was murdered while on duty at the Civic Campus of the Ottawa Hospital. That collective grief was on display in downtown Ottawa last week, during the funeral of Const. Czapnik. Thousands of police officers from across North America gathered at Carleton University on Jan. 7 for a funeral procession to Lansdowne Park, following a hearse carrying Const. Czapnik’s body. They marched past thousands of residents who gathered on the street to show their respect for the slain police officer. A scattered few shouted out “Thank you!” as the hearse passed. When Const. Czapnik was murdered, we all lost an opportunity to say thank you to one of the people who work every day to keep us safe. Const. Czapnik was more than a police officer. He was a husband, a son, a friend and a father of four children. We hope his children know their dad was a hero, but no words can explain his sacrifice, no sympathies lessen their pain. It’s been more than 25 years since the previous death of an officer. It was not long enough. Police officers have difficult jobs, dealing with people often at their worst: domestic disputes, victims who are traumatized, crime scenes that are disturbing. It’s a difficult enough job few of us are suited to take on. If you add in the dangers as well, even fewer citizens are willing and able to serve the rest of us as police. Czapnick’s death should be a reminder that all our police officers serve the greater population and the greater good. We need them to do their jobs without fear of injury or death. Now is a good time to let every police officer and every civilian employee of the Ottawa police service know that they are valued. And that we will support them in their work: the routine, the difficult and the traumatic.

In my humble opinion, I believe it is time to take the gloves off and challenge Veterans Affairs Canada directly with two forms of audit. • The auditor general should do a complete review of the departments (VAC) books. This is to see exactly where money is going and if, in fact, there is enough money in the budget to ensure all disabled veterans of the CF and former members of the RCMP, can have access to benefits and services based on need, not based on what is left in a budget. • To parallel this financial audit, an independent medical board should be established to audit all files that have been turned down upon first application for benefits, and a review of the entire amount of files that have been appealed to the VRAB with negative results. Enough is enough. We owe it to the men and women who serve to ensure that every possible avenue is available for them to receive benefits and services based solely and entirely on their needs. Dennis Manuge


City water meter project is a huge waste of money The City of Ottawa is planning to spend $25 million to put time-of-use water meters in our homes. The decision to do this has to make you scratch your head in wonder. There are already meters in every home and the vast majority of them work just fine. Putting in new technology will not bring in one more cent of water revenue to pay for this unnecessary project. So let’s talk reality. As with most things, government and businesses always operate on the assumption that somehow, somewhere, someone is affecting their revenue by stealing them blind. They would rather deal with that mythical reality than admit their business is just


plain unprofitable or unsustainable. When it comes to our water the city obviously feels that someone, somewhere, is stealing them blind. They would rather believe that than admit the system has leaks, or that we have gotten the message to become more water efficient. Frankly, the system probably does have leaks. Let’s take a few seconds to explore the possible ‘leaks’. Could the leaks include the water used to cool those big commercial, water-cooled, air conditioners that suck thousands of cubic metres of water per hour all summer? Then there are the billions of cubic metres used by our fire services. Next there are the thousands of cubic

metres used in the summer to flush the water system, the streets or fill swimming pools. The city doesn’t even lock the fire hydrants and I have seen contractors opening them to fill their own street flushers and private pools. You’ll note that I have yet to address the real leaks. Let’s face it, the driver for all of this isn’t missing water, but instead, missing water usage. For years the city drummed into us that we were using too much water. A couple of years ago, that message hit home with me, and according to the city, to many of my neighbors. We became more water efficient. Much more efficient. Rather than admit that this was a problem for the city, they would

rather believe that they were being robbed. So, this all comes down to whether we spend $25 million to find out if someone is stealing us blind. Yes, ‘if ’ someone is stealing us blind, and ‘if ’ it turns out that no one is stealing any water, then we have wasted $25 million. And even if we do catch a few people, how many would we have to catch to get that $25 million back? Let’s face it, that $25 million could be better spent elsewhere. Many of the councillors who want us to buy into this $25 million program are thinking of running for mayor. Are these the kind of people we want running our city?

Freestylin’ beats and skis Ty Hall & The EZ3 donate money from online single sales to National Freestyle Ski team Local band Ty Hall & The EZ3 are taking an active approach to the Vancouver Olympics. With each download of the band’s new single “Pirates Gold,” 50 cents will be donated to the National Freestyle Ski team. The idea came about because the band was looking to help out Canadian athletes in some way. The National Freestyle Ski team was chosen because Hall and City Lights Entertainment General Manager Michael Wood have a mutual friend who used to compete for the team. “We saw the hardships she went through to compete,” Wood said. After Hall and Wood saw what their friend went through to get to Turin, they wanted to do something to help out and support athletes in their bid to get to the Olympics. “The struggle between musicians and professional athletes is similar,” Hall said. “There’s little money and some support. It’s the same and we can all relate to it.” With the recent release of their album “Dollars & Nonsense” and the new single “Pirates Gold” hitting the airwaves, the

band hopes that the partnership will provide mutual support to the athletes and the band. Freestyle ski athlete and team member, Olivier Rochon has been competing with the National Freestyle Ski team for four years and spends most of his time trainPhoto by Chris Topp ing or competing.

Police, residents join in honouring fallen officer JENNIFER MCINTOSH

the work he did while he was still on the street. “In this case it really brings home the danger that we face,” he said. “He was just sitting in his car writing notes. So you never know what can happen.” Retired Ottawa Deputy Chief and Nepean resident Larry Hill said that each time a comrade falls, it makes him remember the ones before. “I have been to funerals of officers in Montreal and Cobourg,” he said. “Each one is awful. But this one, for an officer to be murdered is so much harder. I know every officer here is thinking about what they would have done.” College Coun. Rick Chiarelli said that the brutal attack of an officer had turned into an attack on the whole community. “It’s very important that we come out and show the support for the family at this time,” he said. “Const. Czapnik’s death reminds us how lucky we are to have these brave men and women looking out for us.” Czapnik graduated from the Ontario Police College at the top of his class and was hired by the Ottawa police shortly after. At his unit, Czapnik went by the nickname Pickles for his love of a good pickle and the occasional vodka on the side. “When he was addressed by an NCO as ‘Eric’ he would say in his thick Polish accent, ‘You can call me Pickles sir,’” Const. Troy Froats, a platoon member and friend of Czapnik’s said. “His pride in his career and in his family and the life they had built together was obvious.” White, who was so choked up at times that he was reduced to whispers, pledged the support of the police family to the one that Czapnik had left behind. “One senseless act took away a son, husband and father from his family,” he said. “There is a blanket of emotion that covers us as we grieve.” Czapnik was stabbed outside the Civic Hospital’s emergency room doors on Dec. 29 while making notes on an unrelated case. Nearby paramedics restrained the suspect and tried to save Czapnik, but were unable to. His accused killer, 43-year-old Kevin Gregson, is a suspended member of the RCMP. Czapnik is the first Ottawa police officer to be killed on the job since 1983. “Words can’t replace a husband, a son, or a father,” Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty said. “But we mourn with you (the family). And we will remember him every time we think about an officer racing to the scene or in a simple act of kindness. He will not be forgotten.”

In a fitting tribute to his memory, Constable Ireneusz “Eric” Czapnik’s hat lay on top of his casket. It was a true testament to the career he loved, one he had selected at a time when most are considering retirement. Called a hero by his stepson Luckasz Galaska, Czapnik was the oldest recruit in the history of the Ottawa police force, donning the uniform in 2007 at the age of 48. Ottawa police Chief Vern White told the story of how Czapnik had joined the force, following in his father’s footsteps. “When many officers are nearing the sunset of their careers, the sun was rising on his,” White said. “When he was hired the recruiting officer simply said, ‘I have never seen anyone who wanted something so bad.’” Despite his being new to the force, the Czapnik service was attended by more than 8,000 people at Lansdowne, with many more braving the January weather to sit outside and watch the procession arrive from Carleton University. Bank Street was a sea of blue on Jan. 5 as police officers paraded towards the Civic Centre to remember their fallen comrade. “I stand before you today so extremely proud and so very humbled, heartbroken and amazed at the sheer magnitude of outpouring my family has received from the entire world,” Galaska said. Denyse Baizana was a volunteer at the Ottawa Hospital Rehabilitation Centre where another Ottawa hero, Const. Robin Easey attended after being shot in the 1984 Bayshore shooting. She waited outside to see the service because she felt the community had something to give back to Czapnik. “Police officers are out there everyday risking their lives to keep us safe,” she said. “I think it is very important to show them that they have our support.” A woman, who wished to be identified only as Jennifer due to the fact that her husband does undercover work for the Ottawa police, said times like these can drive home the danger her husband faces everyday. “You can’t think about it too much or you would go out of your mind,” she said. “But it was important for me and my husband to be here to support the (Czapnik) family.” Officers came out in the thousands because their membership in the force is akin to being in a family, said one member of the Toronto police force, Andrew Ecklund. “Absolutely we are a family,” Ecklund said. “It’s a To see video, go to tragic loss.” Ecklund said he knows his own family worried about /videozone

Some of the 4,000-plus police officers and other emergency services workers arrive at the Urbandale Centre in a procession for the funeral of Const. Eric Czapnik. The route led from Carleton University to the arena on Bank Street. Some officers travelled to Ottawa from as far away as British Columbia, Nova Scotia, New York City and Cleveland, Ohio.

JAMIE DOGGART For most people, attending the Grammy Awards would be a dream come true. For Nepean musician and general manager of a local entertainment company, it’s a reality. Michael Wood, the general manager of City Lights Entertainment is going to the Grammy Awards this year and he’s voting. “It’s a huge honour to be amongst your peers like that,” Wood said. There are more than 100 music categories to pick from but members are asked to choose only 9, Wood explains. “You’re

asked to vote on what you know best. For me it’s rock, pop, country, that sort of thing.” Wood laughs as he remembers a story from the last Grammy Awards he attended. He left his camera and cell phone at the hotel because they weren’t allowed at the show. “No one wants to get kicked out of the Grammy’s,” Wood said. “When I get there, everyone has their cameras and cell phones,” Wood said. “And there’s Smokey Robinson taking pictures. I wanted to know where I could find a disposable camera fast.” Tickets to the award show don’t have assigned seating so it’s likely that guests

will be rubbing elbows with big names in the industry. However, tickets are divided into four categories and are available through invite only. Despite the star-studded scene Wood says people are attending for the love of music. It’s about going to be part of the industry as a whole. “For someone from Ottawa, it’s pretty

cool,” Wood said. Not just anyone can become a voting member of the academy. Applicants must meet a certain number of specific accomplishments before being extended a voting membership. The candidate must have six commercially released tracks, which are distributed on a non-consignment basis, in order to be eligible to vote in the Grammy Awards.

Contest remembers the fallen The Bells Corners Royal Canadian Legion branch 593 presented the awards for their annual poster, poem and essay contest. The contest is open to all the schools in the former City of Nepean, excluding the schools in Barrhaven. “This contest is about rememberance. The quality of the submissions this year show the truth of those words,” branch president Maureen Nicholls. Once the submissions are judged at the branch level, the first prize winners go onto the district and national levels.

Left: Samantha Adeli won second place for her essay, called “The wisdom of rememberance.” Below: College Coun. Rick Chiarelli and Bells Corners Legion’s Poet Laureate and judge presented students with their awards in the poetry category.

Nepean This Week welcomes new reporter Hello, my name is Jamie Doggart and I’m the new reporter for the Nepean This Week. I’ll never get tired of saying that because it’s taken me a long time to get here and let me tell you dear reader, I’m glad to have made it. The writing bug first bit me at the age of eight. I was reading when an uncle walked by and said “you read so much, why don’t you write something?” That was it for me, I was hooked. In high school, my friends often told me I had a “listening face,” whatever that looks like. Fortunately, it seems be an asset. I love hearing stories and people like talking to me. I’m the stranger in line at the grocery store that always seems to be having a conversation with the people behind them. Annoying? Possibly. Entertaining? Always. I believe that talking to people is the best way to get a feel for a community. I grew up in Whitby, a town in the Durham region, but left to pursue a career in journalism, starting with Carleton University. A Bachelor of Arts Honours in English and History didn’t quite offer all of the preparation needed to be a reporter.

Comrade Bernie Pelltier congratulates an award recipient in the essay competition.
