The right tools for school JAMIE DOGGART


This year the Nepean, Rideau and Osgoode Community Resource Centre (NROCRC) has launched their own Tools 4 School fundraising program. In past years, NROCRC has teamed up with Child and Youth Friendly Ottawa (CAYFO) to supply their communities with school supplies. However, due to increased demand, CAYFO could only supply half of the amount asked for. “It was the last week of September and I still had 40 people on my waiting list,” said Kim Ethier, Tools 4 School program coordinator for NROCRC. Last year, NROCRC handed out over 280 backpacks and helped 78 local families. This year the resource centre has decided to start early and take a more hands on approach. The expectation is that the implementation of full day learning and HST will drive up the number of people who will apply to the program. NROCRC is asking the community for donations of new or very gently used backpacks and school supplies. The centre will also accept monetary donations. “The more they can help, the longer we can keep the program running,” Ethier said. But she specified that the supplies have

to be in good condition because they don’t want to risk embarrassing the child or put them in a position to be teased. Cash donations will be used to purchase Best Tools for School kits through CAYFO. Kits contain everything a child will need throughout the year. Normally a kit for a junior grade child is approximately $63 but the kits are being made available to the charity for much cheaper. “It’s a financially stressful time for parents,” Ethier said. “I’m a mom and I feel the pinch.” CAYFO also feels the pinch and is pleased that NROCRC – which normally only distributes – is fundraising this year. Julianna Cronk, the program coordinator for Tools 4 School with CAYFO, said that she thinks it’s excellent that NROCRC has branched out on their own with the charity. “They’re taking it upon themselves this year to raise for themselves, which is great,” she said. To help boost awareness and donations, this year Tools 4 School had a kick-off event July 13. “It’s always been a bit of a slow start,” Cronk said. Registration begins Aug. 3. Visit for information. See, “Price comparison” on page 3.

Residents along Meadowlands Drive were left without water due to a water main break last week. According to residents, half of the buildings along Meadowlands, east of Fisher Avenue had their water shut off due to the break. One of the buildings affected was 1157 Meadowlands Dr. where residents saw no water three separate times within a twoweek period. One of the tenants, Barry L. – who didn’t want his last name used – said that the water was off at 6 a.m. when he woke up and didn’t come back on until after 2 p.m. that afternoon. “No one even asked ‘would you like a bottle of water?’ we’re in the middle of a heat wave,” he said. The water main first broke on Wednesday then Tuesday of the week of July From “Price comparison” on page 1.

5th. The city was out to address the break but the repaired section of pipe ruptured again on July 13th. Residents felt like they weren’t warned of the water repairs and were left high and dry during the heat. According to a city official, Minto was made aware of the water being shut off and it was up to the company to notify tenants. “Minto buildings use sprinklers. We didn’t have a sprinkler system – there was no fire safety,” Barry said. According to a city official, the water main in question has broken six times over the past 11 years. However, residents claim that it has broken four times in the last two years. The pipe broke last winter as well, causing the water to be shut off to the street. A city spokesperson refused to comment on the questions of why the pipe broke or whether the latest fix will hold.

On the Campaign Trail

Creating beautiful landscapes since 1974

VIDEO BLAMED ON RIVAL A YouTube video of mayor Larry O’Brien’s campaign launch speech has been edited and put on YouTube. The video is mocking in nature and highlights some of O’Brien’s gaffes. The edited video showed O’Brien mixing metaphors and mangling his words at a speech outside his downtown condo. Opposing candidate Jim Watson’s camp has been blamed for the video. While Watson said that staff has been


directed to videotape speeches from opponents, no one associated with him is responsible for the video. “It’s regrettable that Mr. O’Brien and his wife made untrue accusations against our campaign,” Bruch Graham, Watson’s campaign manager, wrote in an email. “Besides encouraging thousands more to view the video, it sidetracks the debate from the substantial issues that Mr. Watson is focusing on in order to bring change to city hall.”

CANDIDATE COOKS UP TALKS ON ISSUES Bay ward candidate Mark Taylor hosted a barbecue with Michele Heights residents at the park and community centre on July 18. The barbecue was a chance to get feedback from the residents of the ward. “Essentially we are trying to…engage a collection of neighbourhoods that often don’t participate much at election time — despite there being a big need


for services in the area,” Taylor wrote in an email. In addition to the fun, Taylor’s campaign team worked on de-mystifying the voting process for those worried about the mechanics of casting their ballot. Taylor launched his municipal campaign on Jan. 6 and is currently the alumni relations manager at Algonquin College.

Chief says south-end station key to future July 8 – August 1

Professional Live Theatre in Morrisburg, Ontario


LongWeekend By Norm Foster 399582

Standing on the corner of Earl Armstrong and River roads, Vern White could all but envision Ottawa’s policing future. The city’s police chief was looking out over the future site of the Strandherd-Armstrong bridge during a Riverside South walk around with GloucesterSouth Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches on July 13. With the bridge scheduled to be finished by March 2011, its construction will provide quicker access to the Ottawa police’s new station likely adjacent to Carleton Lodge – a long-term care facility. “Without the bridge it’s not the best location,” White said. “You end up trying to figure what’s the easiest way around the (Rideau) river. The bridge will be essential for us.” The station is slated to be complete by the end of 2012, just before White’s term as chief ends. Though White could not confirm the size of the station other than to say it would be built on six hectares city land, Jimmy Mui, executive director of corporate support for the Ottawa police said in the March 18 edition of the Barrhaven-Ottawa South This Week that it would be a two-storey, 9,000-square-metre building. Mui said that approximately 40 per cent of the station would be used for patrolling purposes, a quarter for emergency operations, another 25 per cent for a communications call centre, with the remaining space for miscellaneous use. Mui believed the facility could house the marine unit as well. White said costs have been budgeted at $12 million in each of 2011 and 2012. Mui estimated the cost of the

facility would be $26 million, which White said could be the case if a fire training unit is included. Even with the additional facility, White doesn’t anticipate having to make any new hires since growth patterns have been set to 2013. He said officers will be redeployed from other city station on Bank Street, Tenth Line, and perhaps even its central location. The station on Greenbank Road could become a specialized office, White added. The south Ottawa location will now give the city central, east, west, and south patrolling station. “From a patrol standpoint, we’re probably done for a decade-and-a-half,” White said. The station will serve Barrhaven, Riverside South, Findlay Creek, and Manotick and other rural areas. Like White, Desroches said the Strandherd-Armstrong bridge is an important cog in the whole project. Desroches said the bridge construction proposal was “pulled from the ashes” once the light rail transit plans were scrapped. “It’s back on track and it’s really opened the doors for a southend police station,” he said. “We’re looking at it a year earlier because of the progress that’s been made on the bridge.” While the bridge is commonly referred to as the StrandherdArmstrong bridge because it will connect Strandherd Drive and Earl Armstrong Road, the final name has yet to be determined. During the second half of White’s community visit, he was asked by a member at the Barrhaven Legion if the bridge might be named after former Ot-

tawa police Const. Eric Czapnik, who was stabbed to death on Dec. 29, 2009 while taking notes in his car. “It’s something I would consider,” White said, adding that blue ribbons will soon be placed on the bumpers of police cruisers to remember all fallen officers. “There may be some discussions around that, and, if not we’ll figure something out.” The city will have the final say in the bridge’s naming, but it’s not something that’s been discussed yet. “The focus has been 100 per cent on building the bridge,” Desroches said. “I think once that milestone is achieved and we open traffic, I see us having a very open and broad consultation on naming the bridge.” However, the city has given the legion the authority to select names for some yet-to-be constructed streets in Barrhaven and the surrounding area. “When we do that, we won’t

Province launches special waste removal program BLAIR EDWARDS

Throwing out hazardous waste just became a whole lot easier, said Stewardship Ontario. The non-profit agency has added 13 new material categories and thousands of new products to its list regulated by the province. Stewardship Ontario is a non-profit agency responsible for overseeing the province’s recycling and hazardous waste removal programs. The organization was created by the Waste Diversion Act in 2002 by provincial legislation. Starting this month, the organization rolled out Orange Drop across the province, a program designed to make it easier for residents to remove their hazardous waste. The list of materials now accepted includes batteries, pharmaceuticals, syringes and aerosol containers. Orange Drop follows the municipal hazardous or special waste program, in-

troduced in 2008, said Sean Magee, Stewardship Ontario’s promotion and education co-ordinator. The special waste program accepted nine waste material categories including paint and solvents. The program is expected to divert 27 million kilograms of trash from Ontario’s landfills – 10 million more kilograms than last year. “The more we can divert away from landfills the longer their lifespan will be,” said Magee. “The main goal is to protect the environment.” Manufacturers of products that end up as hazardous waste pay for its transport and removal, said Magee. “That really can be a great brand recognition for them,” Magee said. Last year, the municipal hazardous or special waste program cost $25.6 million to run. Residents pay no fee to drop the items off at the province’s 92 municipal recycling depots, 2,700 pharmacies and 738 retail stores that collect either or both

paint, batteries. The cost of the program is passed on to manufacturers. “There’s going to be more drop-off locations,” said Magee. “Any cost along the way (to consumers) is going to be a barrier.” Additional drop-off centres will encourage more people to recycle their hazardous waste, Magee said. Stewardship Ontario is currently promoting the new program across the province using radio, television and print ads as well as sending a representative to festivals, fairs and other large events where people congregate. The organization has organized 217 special waste collection events across the province over the next few months. Information about drop-off sites is available on the website; and is also promoted on social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter. “Orange Drop is designed to raise awareness about what is

considered a hazardous or special waste and to encourage Ontarians to make returning these items part of their regular recycling routine,” said Lyle Clark, vicepresident of operations of Stewardship Ontario. The only hazardous and special waste drop-off spot in Nepean is at Trail Waste Facility, 4475 Trail Road. However, there are other drop off sites listed close to the Nepean area to accomodate community residents. Check for more information about the type of waste that can be dropped off at each location.

Take care on summer swims

Ramped up

July marks the halfway point of summer. We’ve entered into the full swing of summer and everyone’s thinking about how to stay cool. As the city flocks to the beaches, water safety is often the last thing on the mind – that is until something goes wrong. According to the Canadian Red Cross, the most drownings happen in the months of July and August when temperatures are typically at their highest. Now is the time to think about water safety – before your toes touch the water. The City of Ottawa website states that the leading cause of drowning with children is a backyard pool. Make sure the pool is properly fenced with a padlocked gate to prevent children from falling in. It takes as little as three minutes for a child to drown. When it comes to swimming in open water, women are more likely to observe safe water practices. Every year, more men drown than their female counterparts. Canadian Red Cross statistics show that 81 per cent of all drownings were men, particularly in the 35 to 44 age range. Over 90 per cent of drowning fatalities related to boating were male, as well as 83 per cent of recreational swimming fatalities. Often swimmers over estimate their abilities and get a cramp then can’t make it back to shore. So how can swimmers stay safe? The most important thing is to never swim alone. Make sure that if something goes wrong, there is still someone around to call for help. Children should swim within arms reach at all times. Having supervision close by can prevent a tragedy before it has time to start. Use common sense and avoid the water after a few drinks.

Dear Premier McGuinty: In June 2005 the Provincial Government which you are the Leader of passed the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disability Act (AODA) which means that Ontario would be fully accessible by 2025. The Customer Service Standard became law on Jan. 1st, 2010. On Thursday, July 8th, 2010, I stopped by your Ottawa office located at 1795 Kilborn and I must say that when I arrived I was shocked to find out that your office was not accessible to persons with disabilities who use wheelchairs and or scooters! The AODA is now 5 yrs old! I would like to know when people with disabilities can expect more than lip service from you and when you might start to practice what you preach!

Does Harper want to know less about Canadians? NEVIL HUNT

If information is power, why does the federal government want less information? The Conservatives recently announced the end of the long-form census, the document that helps many organizations – and the government itself – make the right decisions about a community’s needs. At the same time, the voluntary short form will go to more homes. End result? More forms, less information and greater cost. Voluntary data is always suspect. Some demographic groups will fill them out more than others, and will therefore be over-represented. Industry Minister Tony Clement asked Statistics Canada to scrap the long form without any public consultation. Now the people who need accurate stats are complaining. Clement has since said he won’t

change his mind, pointing to Canadians’ fears of government intrusion, although the census folks soon pointed out that complaints are just about nil. In the interests of research, I printed out a long form from a recent census and filled it in on behalf of Jane and John Doe. Remember that all the info that could identify the Doe family is kept out of the hands of researchers for at least 92 years. If the Does are paranoid, they can even choose to check a box that ensures their names are never linked to the census, even if they’re dead and buried. The Doe family shared the following information for consumption by researchers and the public: sex, birthdate and marital status, • disabilities, • place of birth, citizenship, lan• guages spoken, their race and families’ ancestry, • if they’ve moved lately, • level of education and field, •

“There was some really bad weather,” Hunter said. “We lost that season in terms of building.” Since Hunter believes Hunt Club and Greenbank roads represent the centre of the city, Alottawata is in the perfect location, especially in the wake of Calypso water park opening 35 kilometres east of the city this summer. “This is an unbelievable location,” he said, adding that water-park visits are very spontaneous. “That’s why we’re so bullish on it.” The 25-year-old company has had its technology used at such places as

With the usual sweltering summer temperatures ripping through the city, people around the Barrhaven area should be happy to know there will be some relief coming – eventually. After delays in construction, the Alottawata Water Park will open off of Moodie Drive, just north of Brophy Drive, by June 2012. The park will be home to over 10 unique rides and a 3,000-square metre wave pool on nearly 40 hectares of land. Rick Hunter, president and CEO of the Ottawa-based company ProSlide Technologies that owns the land and the designs and equipment for the rides, knows Alottawata will be a lot of fun for everyone. “We’re going to have a mix of rides that are going to be absolutely worldleading,” Hunter said, adding the Tornado 60 and an on-grade river would be included. “We’re not playing our hand… but we’re going to have a mix of rides that are second to none in this area.” ProSlide – which also owns Mont Cascades 30 kilometres north of Ottawa – was originally supposed to open Alottawata in 2009, but pushed back its opening until 2010. Hunter said the economic crisis and last summer’s rainy weather put a damper on construction until 2012.

Disneyworld in Florida and at the Beijing Water Cube, where the swimming events were housed at the 2008 Olympic Games. Therefore Hunter decided to take a wait-and-see approach when it came to following Calypso’s opening, especially when he knew Alottawata would be built no matter what. “People are going to build their stuff anyway,” Hunter said, adding that he still presently has Mont Cascades to compete in the area with Calypso. “There was a little bit of eye-brow testing going on in terms of who’s going to open first. “It never hurts to know what people are offering, does it? We know what we’re doing with our water-park designs and layouts.” Hunter acknowledged the disappointment local residents have had with the delays, but he believes it will be worth the wait. Right now Mont Cascades is offering a $10 entrance fee for all patrons because of a 20th anniversary promotion, and an adult day pass at Calypso is $30.97. Hunter wasn’t willing to commit to prices for Alottawata yet, but said he is “committed to family value” and that they would almost certainly be cheaper than Calypso. It’s all part of Alottawata’s plan to attract a lot of people. “A water park done well,” Hunter said, “never stops growing.”

Tyke Knights Win Nepean Lacrosse Tournament Championship The tyke (age 7 and 8) Nepean Knights won the championship game of the Nepean Knights Lacrosse tournament in dramatic fashion over the visiting St Catharines Athletics by a score of 4-3. With the game tied 3-3 with less than a minute to play, Kayle Osborne made a

strong check at the centre of the floor, grabbed the ball, raced in on a breakaway and put a beautiful shot past the Athletics’ goaltender to put the Knights ahead for good. It was Osborne’s third goal of the game. The Knights went into the third period with a 3-1 lead. The two teams had played earlier in the round robin, with St. Cath-

arines winning 7-6. In the final, the Athletics pulled even early in the third but the Knights defence held strong and kept the game tied until Osborne broke the deadlock. The win is a huge boost for the young Knights team coached by Shawn Thompson as they head to the provincial championships in Whitby in early August.

In earlier tournament action, the Knights were never really tested; they won 10-2 over Gloucester, 17-3 over Kahnawake and again 17-3 over Akwasasne. The tyke Knights’ championship was a highlight of the 14th annual Nepean Knights Lacrosse tournament that drew 58 teams to the city from across Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick.

Head over heels for gymnastics summer camp JAMIE DOGGART

Let your child hop, skip and play while improving their basic motor skills. Nepean Corona School of Gymnastics is offering a gymnastics, sports and activity camp again this summer. The added twist is that new this year, the school is offering a camp for four-year-olds. The program is similar to the five and up camp with fewer campers. There is a

higher counsellor to camper ratio so the children get the care they require. A typical week at camp includes gymnastics first thing in the morning. After snack, campers get to choose another activity to try – from cheerleading, art, indoor/outdoor sports, or more gymnastics – until lunch time. Thursdays are field trip days where the children climb into the bus and are taken somewhere fun for the day. Past trips have included Camp Fortune and Calypso waterpark.

Camps run in one week sessions from 9:15 a.m. to 4 p.m. and campers are collected from the school except for days the campers are swimming at the university. Kids would then require a pick up from Brewer Park. Sarah Ritskes, the program director at Corona, said that though the four yearolds are young, they’re actually at a good age to be learning gymnastic basics. “They’re at a great age to pick it up,” she said. “They’re just learning to move

their arms and legs separately.” The school has special equipment for the campers – the same equipment that gymnasts use, like the balance beam and the bars, except they are made for kids. “They’re learning gymnastics, but learning in a fun way,” Ritskes said. A week at camp in the all day 5 to 15year-old program is $215 and the same program for the 4-year-olds is $230. For more information visit http://

What are you doing this summer? Wouldn’t it be great to spend your summer having fun with a new puppy? Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind is looking for individuals or families that would like to foster a puppy and, eventually, turn that puppy into a well-rounded ‘good dog’ suitable to enter formal training to become a working guide dog for a visually impaired person. The puppy must be welcomed as a member of the family, learn 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.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 and provide an incredible gift to a visually impaired person. If your dog graduates, you get the opportunity to meet the blind person whom the guide dog is matched with.You must be available to attend regular training sessions, have access to a vehicle to get to veterinary appointments, and have plenty of free time. This volunteer position is referred to as Puppy Walking. Although it’s actually fostering the pup or dog, a large component to the program is walking the dog several hours daily. Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind provides all food for the puppy and is responsible for all veterinary expenses. Attend an Information Session on July 9, July 23, or August 6, 2010. Registration is required. To register or to get more information, phone (613) 692-7777 or email .

Use sunscreen - use a sunscreen with • an SPF of 30 or more for children over 6 months of age. Choose a “broadspectrum” brand made for children. Put sunscreen on areas that cannot be covered by clothing, such as the face, ears, feet and backs of hands. • Never leave children in vehicles - the inside of a car or van can become very hot in minutes. For more information on staying safe in the sun this summer, visit health or call Ottawa Public Health Information at 613-580-6744. •

Sunshine in the spring and summer invites us to be outside after the long cold winter. Ottawa Public Health wants to remind you that sun and hot weather can be dangerous for babies and young children. Follow these tips to keep children safe from the sun and heat. Look for shade - keep babies under • one year of age in complete shade: Everyone should avoid direct sun between 11 am and 4 pm. Cover up - when outdoors, protect • skin with loose clothes, and a hat with a wide brim to shade the face, neck, and ears.

It’s Time to Say ‘Good-Bye’ After almost thirty years of greeting and helping the people of Nepean and the surrounding area, I will be saying “Good-bye” on July 28.

tions of the same family as they come to our office for their eye care. I look forward to my first year of retirement as I travel to Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, Ireland and Mexico. At this time, I would like to say “Good-bye” to one and all and thanks for making my working life such an enjoyable time. Because of you, our patients, I will have a lot of wonderful memories to take with me into retirement. Thank you. Pat Cassidy
