Ottawa takes action on river plan JENNIFER MCINTOSH

jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

The city has decided to take action on a plan for the Ottawa River. Staff have recommended that councillors go with option B, a $90 to 140-million plan to deal with wastewater. The plan calls on an agressive goal of zero overflows in years with average rainfall. The plan would have under-

ground storage facilities to hold rainwater until it can reintroduced into the city’s treatments plants. The decision went to the city’s planning and environment committee after Nepean This Week went to press. While the plan would take five or six years to implement, Bay Coun. Alex Cullen said residents would be see a reduction in the number of beach closures almost immediately.

“It’s a good plan,” he said. “Both in cost and for the environment Michel Chevalier, manager of wastewater and drain operations for the city, said the plan was recommended by the environment commissioner. “We could have gone with a cheaper plan that would have had us in compliance,” he said. “But residents have said they care about the river and want something better.” 361483

COL. CHARGED

The race is on in KnoxdaleMerivale ward, with three people already declaring their candidacy. The incumbent, Coun. Gord Hunter announced on Feb. 1 that he will not be running. “My advice for people is that if they want to run, they have to show that they have performed some service to their community,” Hunter said. Lawyer and Craig Henry resident Keith Egli has decided he would like to join public service because of a love for the community. “There is always some thing to do and everyone is very community minded,” Egli said. James Dean captured 22 per cent of the vote in the last election. Dean, a high tech professional and businessman, said he expects the race to be a little easier this time around because of Hunter’s retirement. “I am not taking anything for granted but it’s really hard to beat an imcumbent,” he said. “I really want to represent the residents so I will be knocking on doors and getting peoples’ opinions. The third candidate, Rod Vanier has been practicing lawyer in Nepean since 1981 and was a Liberal candidate for NepeanCarleton in the 2009 provincial election.

Union refuses final offer, sets strike date

jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com In a last ditch effort to avoid a strike, the College Compensation and Appointments council will be taking its final offer to the faculty. The Ontario Labour Relations Board has scheduled a vote for Ontario Public Service Employees Union members on Feb. 10. Rod Bain, a member of OPSEU’s bargaining team and an instructor in the heritage and masonry program at Algonquin College’s Perth campus, said that the union has moved back the strike deadline to Feb. 17 in order to allow time for negotiations if the vote fails. Originally, the union had set a strike deadline on Feb. 1. Bain said that he had confidence faculty would reject the college’s offer. “I know the strike vote was close, but it’s really hard to vote in favour of a strike,” he said. “It’s a lot easier to vote

against an offer that essentially has no improvements over their original terms and conditions.” Dr. Rachel Donovan, chair of the colleges’ bargaining team, said that she has confidence in the merits of the proposal. “We think the agreement is fair and we believe that faculty should have a democratic right to vote on it,” Donovan said. The union’s 9,000 members have been without a collective agreement since talks broke down in November. “Even if they manage to take it to the faculty for a vote, I don’t think they (the colleges) are going to get the results that they are hoping for,” Jack Wilson, vice president of Algonquin College’s OPSEU local 415, said. “The offer is essentially the same one faculty rejected in January.” Wilson cited workload as the major contention. One part of the revised offer is to make special arrangements to support instructors that are teaching more than 260 stu-

dents — something the union says falls quite short of the mark. “This was an issue in 2004, we almost walked out then. We did walk out over workload in 2006 and it is an issue now,” he said. “I find it shameful that after all the work of the task force and the bargaining teams all they can do is offer a solution that at best helps five per cent of the faculty.” Regardless of the conflict over workload, Donovan said at a Feb. 2 press conference that the latest offer was the best the union was going to get. “It’s the best we can do in terms of the economic climate,” she said. “We have shortened the length of the contract to leave the union in a position to bargain again if the economic situation im354788 proves.” Wilson said that the union has been pushing for binding arbitration for

months. “A binding arbitration would find the best solution,” Wilson said. “So it seems to me that if the colleges were as confident in their offer as they say they are, then they would be willing to look at that solution.” Donovan said that arbitration is not the answer. “We believe the right approach is to allow the faculty to vote on the offer, not to bypass them by giving the responsibility to a third party. In an earlier interview with Nepean This Week, Algonquin College Students’ Association president Mike Hirsch said that students had some worries about what will happen to their classes if the teachers walked out.

Newsbites Pam FitzGerald gets NDP nod New Democrats in Ottawa West-Nepean joined NDP Leader Andrea Horwath to nominate Pam FitzGerald as their candidate in the by-election on March 4 at a packed nomination meeting today. Pam has served as School Trustee at the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board since 2006 and as the Executive Director of the Canadian Health Coalition. As the Executive Coordinator of the Midwifery Group of Ottawa, she helped establish the first legally-recognized practice of midwives in the Ottawa area. Pam has served on the boards of two community health centres and a daycare, as the chair of a community housing project, and for two years as the chair of Ottawa-Carleton Assembly of School Councils (OCASC).

Graham Tory candidate Beth Graham, a one-time political aide and longtime community activist, will represent the Conservatives in the provincial riding of Ottawa West-Nepean after winning the riding association’s nod in a lively nomination meeting Feb. 5. Riding officials would not release the vote results, but an estimated 250 people attended the nomination meeting, held at the Tailgaters Sports Bar in Merivale Mall. Graham, who resigned her job as a political staffer for federal Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq, will face Liberal candidate Bob Chiarelli, a former MPP, regional chairman and two-term Ottawa mayor, in a March 4 provincial byelection.

The request still requires approval from City Council.

OC Transpo and la Société de transport de l’Outaouais (STO), in partnership with Transport Canada, today launched a new Transit-Secure initiative to help make public transit in the National Capital Region more secure. The goal of the joint campaign is to increase transit security and public awareness. Riders and the general public are being asked to help keep transit safe by being alert. If they see something suspicious, they should not hesitate to say something by calling 310-2828. Transit riders in both Ottawa and Gatineau now have access to a dedicated phone number to report anything suspicious. Callers don’t need to dial an area code – just dial 310-2828 and they’ll be connected to their respective transit authority, which will investigate their report. For life-threatening emergencies or crime in progress, residents should always call 9-1-1. The security awareness campaign received funding support from the federal government, which has committed $2.2 million for programs promoting security in public transit in the region since 2006. Starting this week, the public will begin seeing promo-

JAMIE DOGGART jamie.doggart@metroland.com A fire tore through CTV’s Ottawa newsroom and caused an estimated $2.5 million in damages. The fire started early Feb. 7, sometime before 4:30 a.m. on the second floor of the former CJOH-TV building in Nepean. It took 70 firefighters and 18 fire trucks more than two hours to bring the blaze under control. An overnight security guard was working when the blaze broke out. He suffered no in-

juries and no other injuries have been reported. The entire newsroom, including expensive equipment like television cameras, editing equipment and archival footage was entirely gutted by the flames. An ongoing investigation into the cause of the fire means it could be days before staff can return. However, plans to continue production from the A Channel building in the Byward Market are moving forward, reports CTV. The cause of the fire has not been determined.

Bell students heading down the beamline

JAMIE DOGGART jamie.doggart@metroland.com Bsync, a group of five Bell High School students are heading to Saskatoon on Feb. 16 to experiment on plant life. 366327

363653

Sherry Chu, Dajian Lu, Tim Xu, Eric Langlois and Nicole Sidebottom have been planning their experiments since October. The students are studying the affect of nanomaterials on plant life. Using a common bean plant, the soil was contaminated with various concentrations of titanium dioxide which the bean plants were then planted in. Some of the plants were planted from seedlings while others were transplanted once they were already established. Mineral levels will then be measured in the plants’ leaves, stems and roots. The students are hoping to see the particles metabolized within the plant with no detriments to the plant life. This would mean that the plants could be used to clean up the soil. Another possible scenerio is that the nanomaterials cause mutations. “Nanoparticles are in 70 per cent of things that are white, like paint and sunscreen,” Xu said. The students developed the entire experiment by themselves and are collectively making all the critical decisions. University of Ottawa student Victor Malkov and Bell High School teacher Diana Hall are mentoring the kids. “We’re all really excited about going to the Canadian Light Source. We hope to find some-

thing in the plants but it’s okay if we don’t,” Lu said. “We could be leading up to future research by real scientists.” One year after the completion of the experiments the students will have the chance to publish an article on their findings. The students are participating in a program sponsored by the Canadian Light Source called Students on the Beamlines. The program connects high school students with world-class research opportunities. The students will be learning actively from experimentation rather than

demonstration. The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) has donated eight hours of synchrotron use to the Bell High School team. The Canadian Light Source has a third generation synchrotron, which is a particle accelerator. The circular shape allows charged particles to be bent and as a result, produce light. This light is then used to measure various aspects of the subject depending on the level of radiation used.

This project is being planned in accordance with the province’s Transit Projects Assessment Process (Ontario Regulation 231/08). This process requires the consideration of alternative designs, public and agency consultation, an assessment of potential environmental effects, the identification of mitigation measures and the preparation of an Environmental Project Report. In order to engage the public and obtain feedback into the planning and design for this facility, a consultation program has been developed that includes three public open houses. At this second open house, members of the public will be presented with the following information: • Project history and background; • The new Transit Projects Assessment Process; • Preliminary design alternatives; • Further opportunities for public participation; and • Next steps. Representatives from the City of Ottawa and the consulting team will be available at the open house to discuss the project, answer any questions and receive public feedback on any aspect of the study. With the exception of personal information, comments will become part of the public record.

s students worry about whether or not their semester is going to be wasted, Ontario teachers are preparing to walk out. Members of the Ontario Public Service Employees Union had a chance to vote on an offer from the College Compensation and Appointments Council on Feb. 10. While we sympathize with the students and the parents, we think faculty should vote no on the offer and put pressure on the colleges to look at instructors’ workloads. The standard workload formula in Ontario Colleges has not changed since 1985, despite the fact that class sizes have grown year by year. That also doesn’t take into account all the different avenues of contact that students now have to reach their instructors outside of class. Jack Wilson, a communications instructor at Algonquin College and vice-president of OPSEU local 415, said that when he started teaching in 1983 he didn’t have his own phone. Now his students can reach him with e-mail, voicemail and on the phone. While this is better for students, it means more work for instructors who have to take time out of their schedules to answer follow up questions and advise on projects. Some will say this is simply part of their job, but as class sizes have grown, so have time demands. Workload was an issue in the 2004 negotiations. It was also an issue in 2006, the last time faculty walked out. How is it still an issue after a provincially-mandated task force got together in 2006 to make recommendations around that same issue? The college has said they are willing to make special arrangements for faculty that teach more than 260 students. Wilson said this only impacts about five per cent of instructors. We find this latest “final offer,” from the colleges inadequate and urge faculty to vote no. Such a rejection may delay learning, but it will also mean students get a better education in the long run.

LETTERS

Parliament should honour all veterans Open letter to MP Pierre Poilievre While I appreciate the recognition of those that this medal was recently issued to, I, as are many thousands of other veterans are still wondering if their own contributions and service to our nation since 1947 will ever be recognized by the nation they volunteered to protect. The proposed Governor General’s Volunteer Service Medal petition has now been read in the House of Commons 12 times and thousands more Canadians have added their names in support. The online petition continues to grow with hundreds more signatures since the start of the new year. Thousands of veterans that have served with digni-

ty, courage, conviction and honour since 1947 and there are thousands of them that, on Nov. 11, once again stood “medal-less”among their comrades on Remebrance Day. Why? Our ancestors of yestercentury were honoured with a volunteer service medal. As recently as midNovember, yet another petition was read in the House and if one were to go to the online GGVSM Petition website and read the comments and views of Canadians, it becomes clear that Canadians – thousands of them – are wondering why we are forgetting our veterans that have served from 1947 to the end of the 20th century.

Canadian Legion in the Ottawa, zone G5 and a member of the Legion branch in Barrhaven, in your riding. Doug is a Canadian sailor that served at sea, in the Gulf of Mexico and the Carribean Sea during the Cuban Missile Crisis and the Soviet naval blockade. Comrade Doug is just one of thousands of veterans that voluntarily served with pride and honour, yet he is one of our medal-less veterans. The creation and issuance of the GGVSM to veterans such as comrade Doug would bring back the dignity to these forgotten veterans. Comrade Doug was once again on parade Nov.11, and he took his place with his comrades, but he stood there bare-chested, not wearing one single Cana-

dian medal for his service to our nation. Pierre, as you know by the very first response to the petition, on Feb. 28, 2008, it cleary indicated that our prime minister has sole ministerial prerogative for the issuance of honours. It should be our prime minister that tells the honours and awards department to bring about the GGVSM, not the other way around. It seems that someone is getting advice about not creating this proposed medal for our veterans and our troops but it doesn’t seem to be the advice that is needed to honour our forgotten veterans and Pierre, thousands of Canadians would like to know why.

“For too long, Bells Corners has been a place to drive through. Today, we begin the process to make it a place to drive to.” That’s how College Ward Councillor Rick Chiarelli kicked off the first ever Annual General Meeting of the Bells Corners Business Improvement Association (BIA) this morning at Local Heroes restaurant in the heart of the Bells Corners commercial strip. The launch of the BIA is the product of three years of hard work by Chiarelli and business community leaders after Bells Corners was moved into College Ward and under Chiarelli’s jurisdiction right after the most recent municipal election. Most wanted improvement because of the eyesores. “The rundown and abandoned buildings like The Vox, the former Dairy Queen and the former Hooters helped to focus the minds of area business leaders, but the problem is much worse than that,” the Councillor explained, “I went on a photo tour of the area and photographed a total of 17 empty, borded-up storefronts, crumbling sidewalks, scruffy properties, poor pedestrian and bike access and no coherent concept for the area.” Chiarelli’s office set out to fix many of the problems. He has recruited new hotels to the area to meet the strip’s new focus

which the Councillor says must be “hospitality.” He also secured funding for a complete sidewalk replacement program for the strip which was completed only weeks ago. But the job couldn’t be done fully without a solid partnership with the crucial business community. Chiarelli personally visited most of the strip’s 400 businesses. Information packages were sent to all. A series of information meetings were held and finally, last fall, a formal BIA Steering Committee was formed. Chaired by Mark Kosmos and boasting members like Jim Sourges (owner of the Electrical and Plumbing Store) and Mark Kantor (owner of The Butchery), the group worked with Chiarelli to plow through the array of legislative requirements leading to Council approval of a Statutory Survey in December 2009. Under the law, once Council has approved a Statutory Survey, a BIA is formed unless 30 per cent of businesses object - in the end, only four did. Chiarelli says a number of challenges await him and the fledgeling organization. The City has identified Bells Corners as next on the priority list for a Community Design Plan which could redefine the area from a traffic and secondary plan perspective. The Bellwood Mobile Home Park is on the verge of returning to the status of a secure home for trailer park residents as long as the property behind it

is developed in a manner friendly to residents and businesses of Bells Corners. As one of Ottawa’s only truly sustainable walking communities - you can walk to virtually anything from anywhere in the neighbourhood - the new BIA hopes to partner with residents to take advantage of synergies. Chiarelli has already been in discussions with area community representatives and these talks have produced great ideas. “We plan to have a bike exchange program that will let hotel visitors grab a bike and take advantage of bike paths through the nearby Greenbelt and even to bike tour their way to Parliament Hill or Bluesfest”, he said. Chiarelli also invited to this morning’s event the renowned mural artist responsible for many of the works in Westboro and at CHEO. Steve Sammon also just happens to be a Bells Corners resident and he will help the BIA Board come up with plans for new branding of the area. The Board of the new BIA, as elected this morning, includes Jim Sourges, Mark Kosmos, Dean Basilas, Sam Saikali, Mike Wolynice, Chris Foley, Kevin Delaire and Betty Montsko. Rick Chiarelli closed off the meeting by saying: “In addition to all of this, there are many surprises coming to Bells Corners. All of those people who were LET’S MAKE CANCER HISTORY quietly asking for change will For information about cancer, www.cancer.ca services or to make a donation 1-888-939-3333 soon by beaming with pride.”

Insurance Fraud is not a victimless crime, we all pay the price for others’ greed; insurance fraud costs our economy billions of dollars annually, and results in increased premiums, higher taxes, and reduced benefits for all. Fraudulent claims account for a significant portion of all claims received by insurers, and according to both the Insurance Information Institute (2001) and Insurance Research Council (1996), costs the economy billions of dollars annually. The varieties of insurance fraud are diverse, and have negative impacts on every sector of the economy. Insurance crimes also range in severity, from exaggerated claims to deliberate destruction of property. Fraudulent activities affect the lives of innocent people, through accidental or purposeful injury and damage, which leads to higher insurance premiums. Insurance fraud poses a very significant problem, and governments and other organizations are focusing efforts to deter such activities. Insurance Fraud varies in scope from neighbors committing false claims, to million dollar fraud committed within

large businesses. A more proactive and organized approach has been necessary to effectively deter fraudsters and their negative impact on our economy. With feedback and direction from special investigation units, www.InsuranceFraud.com was launched, an online hub for the public to report any form of insurance fraud, which is directed to the appropriate insurance company and investigative units. It is up to the public to participate and help stop those who make others lives’ harder through their greed and dishonesty, and now there is a central hub to report it. The detection of insurance fraud generally occurs in two steps. The first step is to identify suspicious claims that have a higher possibility of being fraudulent. This can be done by analysis by claims adjusters or through the reporting of suspicious activity by the public. Due to the sheer number of claims submitted each day, it would be far too expensive and labour intensive for insurance companies to have employees check each claim thoroughly for symptoms of fraud, which is why public reports are so vital. The InsuranceFraud.com hub connects fraud reports with those who have the power to stop it.

The OSU Force 97 U13 boys are this years provincial indoor champions SPECIAL TO THIS WEEK OSU boys crowned as new provincial indoor champions. The OSU Force 97 U13 Boys traveled to the Soccer Centre in Vaughan, Ontario eager to compete in the Ontario Indoor Cup Championships on January 30, 31. After training hard all winter season, the team came out strong and well prepared to face teams from other Ontario districts. The opening game had the boys playing against a strong Ajax Spurs team but not strong enough to hold back the scoring power of the Force’s offence. With a decisive 6-1 win the boys were off to a great start. The boys continued their excellent style of play in the second match against the displaced Sault Cruzll Eagles sending them home with a 16-0 loss. The third game proved to be more of what the team expected from the Toronto area competition. The Brampton Blast came out very strong raising the level of play, but the Force’s defensive playing ability stepped up to the challenge and lead them to a nail biting 2-1 victory. On day two, the Force once again with its undeniable skills, scored a big win in the semi-final, defeating Erin Mills Storming Eagles 5-0.

The U13 Boys Final started with a high level of intensity with both teams well matched, driven, and hungry for victory. The Force fought hard to overcome the challenges that the very tough and physical Dixie team presented. Through hard work and determination, OSU scored their first goal of the game on a give and go shot to the top corner, scored by Kristopher Twardek, assisted by Samuel Lowery. Dixie then responded with a goal, tying the game at the end of the first half. Submitted photo Both teams showed passion as OSU boys pose with their medals after winning the provincial indoor championship Jan. 30-31. they continued to push for the 367090 advantage. The hard work paid off for the Force with Charles Andrascik scoring the second goal to take the lead. Dixie kept challenging but OSU held their ground winning the Final Game 2-1 and taking hold of the title Provincial Champion. Throughout the tournament the boys remained focused, worked hard, and displayed many of the qualities that make up a championship team. The team and Head Coach Abraham Osman represented the OSU club very well and received many compliments from the spectators including opposing team’s parents and coaches. Congratulations to Coach Abe and our Force 97 boys on this wonderful accomplishment and a great start to the year!

• FEB. 19 Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind requires foster families to home a puppy in training. The puppy must

be welcomed as a member of the family, learning basic obedience and be introduced to a multitude of situations that will aid it in eventually becoming a working guide dog for the blind. An adult has to be home most of the day or have permission to take the dog to work with you. The foster family is responsible for training the dog obedience and socialization skills, working closely with a professional dog trainer from Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind. For the volunteer, it’s much like having your own puppy, but you must add specific commands and rules which are geared towards this puppy becoming a guide dog. It’s a long-term commitment of twelve to eighteen months, having the puppy accompany you almost everywhere you go, and adapting to the fact that the dog must be given back to enter into formal training at the end of the fostering stage. A large part of the reward is the chance for the puppy you raised to graduate as a working guide dog, to provide an incredible gift to a visually impaired person, and to have the opportunity to meet the person that the guide dog is matched with. Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind provides all food for the puppy and is responsible for all veterinary expenses. Attend an Information Session on Feb.19, March 5, or March 19, 2010. Registration is required. To register or to get more information, phone 613-692-7777 or email cgdb@sympatico.ca.
