Police have identified the body found in the Rideau River on May 12 as that of Michael Pineau, a 19-year-old Nepean resident who went missing from his Chesterton Drive home in March. The family has declined to talk to the media, but did offer a public statement. “Our family is devastated. We lost an amazing, talented, extremely generous and intelligent son, brother, grandson, nephew and cousin,” the statement reads. Police received the dental records of Pineau on May 17 and announced the identification two days later. Friends and family launched a large scale search for the missing teen after he left a house party in his home on March 15. Pineau had been drinking and was joking with a young woman when she slipped and fell on the ice. Friends said he had feelings for the woman and was distressed by the incident. His roommates and friends thought he would just cool off and come back, but no one had heard from him since. Pineau’s mother Liz came to Ottawa from the family’s hometown of Mattawa, Ont. a few days into the search and helped her daughter Miriam to coordinate hundreds of friends and volunteers in a city-wide search for her son. “We have been just wowed by the support we have received from people in Ottawa helping us in the search,” Liz said, 10 days after her son’s disappearance. Michael was officially reported missing on March 16, but by then police decided it was too late for a ground search, so they started monitoring his credit and debit cards and posting pictures from Ottawa to Montreal and Toronto.

Nepean woman wins lottery jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

Faith Townsend got an unexpected windfall from an Instant Quest for Gold Crossword. The Nepean resident won $50,000 on May 19. “This is such a wonderful amount to win,” Townsend said in a press release from OLG.

The winning ticket was purchased at a CNIB Lottery Kiosk on Merivale Road. Instant Quest For Gold Crossword is a scratch ticket that requires players to scratch and match words on a crossword grid. The more words matched, the bigger the prize. Proceeds from the Quest for Gold game support Ontario’s amateur athletes through the Ministry of Health Promotion and Sport.

Candidates left in cold in wake of Denley announcement JENNIFER MCINTOSH jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

Randall Denley may be billed as a star candidate, but some of the former nomination candidates from Ottawa West-Nepean are feeling less than stellar. Ontario Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak flew into Ottawa on May 17 to announce the candidacy of Denley, saying he was proud his party was attracting his calibre of candidates. Up to the surprise announcement, nomination hopefuls Brent Colbert, Beth Graham and Ade Olumide were still gathering memberships and knocking on doors. Olumide, former president of the Ottawa Taxpayer’s Advocacy Group, said that he was initially approached by a member of the party two weeks before the announcement, encouraging him to step down for the (unknown at the time) “star candidate.” “I initially declined the request and said I would still stand up for nomination as long as I had supporters,” Olumide said, a day after the Denley announcement. A week later, members from the party attempted to contact

“We don’t pick our candidates in backroom deals. ” Tim Hudak PC Party leader

Olumide again, but he refused the meeting. On May 17, Olumide was informed by the president of the Ontario PC party that he wouldn’t be able to contest the party nomination in Ottawa West-Nepean. “I was informed that they will ‘find another venue’ for me to be part of the 2011 team,” he said. While Olumide said he plans to back Denley if he is named the candidate, he said he wants to shed light on what he feels is a flawed process. “I spent six months knocking on doors in the rain, drumming up memberships,” he said. “When I was pondering to put my name up for nomination in January they should have told me about this star candidate.

I looked at Beth and Brent and I felt I could win, that’s why I ran.” Olumide said he had 500 nomination signatures, more than the 150 each of the other two candidates. “I felt sure I was going to win, until this happened,” he said. Long-time Ottawa West-Nepean Ontario Conservative riding association member Geoffrey Sharpe called the naming of Denley, a “basic affront to democracy.” Sharpe, who makes no bones about having supported Beth Graham — the candidate of record for the conservatives in the March 2010 provincial byelection, compared the party’s treatment to “getting kicked in the groin.” “Beth worked really hard and managed to whittle down the liberal vote in Ottawa West-Nepean,” he said. “She was only 1,200 (1,267) votes behind Chiarelli, a far cry from the 2007 election.” Sharpe said when Graham received the party nomination in 2010, Mike Patton’s supporters got behind her, because the process was done properly. “I don’t see that happening in this case,” he said.

Sharpe added that he received a letter in the mail from the Ontario PC party stating that nomination deadline was May 23 at 5 p.m. Sharpe said the letter was posted a day before the Denley announcement. “That’s just spitting in the face of the other nomination candidates,” he said. Graham chose to step down on May 18. “This was not my first choice,” she said in a press release “But I believe that it is in the best interests of the future of our province that we stand united as Progressive Conservatives in our fight to replace Premier McGuinty’s Liberals.” Graham encouraged her supporters to stand behind Denley. Colbert announced his resignation from the race on May 16 with a message on his website. “Unfortunately it has been decided that someone else will seek and win the nomination for the Ontario PC Party in Ottawa West-Nepean,” he said. “I remain loyal and dedicated to our leader Tim Hudak who I know will be a great leader.” The conservatives took a hit in Carleton-Mississippi Mills after Ontario Landowners Association activist Jack MacLaren

defeated veteran MPP Norm Sterling. When asked about the process in that riding during a talk at a Greater Nepean Chamber of Commerce breakfast, Hudak said that he didn’t want to interfere with grassroots campaigning. “We don’t pick our candidates in backroom deals,” he said. Jon Pammet, a political scientist at Carleton University, said that while it is not unheard of for members of party leadership to engineer nominations, it is generally avoided. “Generally the parties are reluctant to do it because it gets noticed and reflects on the local democracy,” he said. “Parties are losing members because very few people join political parties now and if you take away the option to run for a local nomination there is even less chance that people will sign up,” he said. Pammett added that while he didn’t know much about the local situation, he said that party leaders would have to weigh the positive aspects of name recognition to offset any negativity over the process.

From ‘Candidates’, page 4 “This is done for a number of reasons, it could be to get a particularly competent person in the cabinet or to increase the number of women in a given area, but I think in this case, it has more to do with the win ability factor,” Pammett said. Denley said his candidacy is legitimate. “No, I don’t think there is anything backroom about it,” Denley said. “It’s always difficult for parties to work things out to have the candidates they want. It’s just part of politics, I think. All three of the previous candidates are supporting me. So I think we’re going to see everybody in the conservative family in Ottawa West-Nepean fighting together.” A nomination meeting is to be held in the riding, but at the time Ottawa This Week – Nepean went to press, the date had not been set. As for the incumbent, Denley said defeating Liberal MPP Bob Chiarelli is a “big challenge” that all Ottawa West-Nepean conservatives are going to work on together. “I don’t have any sense that we’re not,” he added. Chiarelli is anxious to take on Denley. “I’m looking forward to a very interesting campaign. I think the debate in Ottawa West-Nepean will be more elevated,” he said. “We’re prepared to be held accountable for our government and our policies - but I hope Mr. Denley will be a catalyst to keep Mr. Hudak accountable.”

Whether they taught with chalk or smart boards, teachers Judy Clapp and Kevin McCarthy agree that the thing that kept them going was that one moment of magic. “When a kid gets something that they didn’t understand the day before, that’s why you do it,” McCarthy said. McCarthy, Clapp and a whole host of other educators gathered to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Our Lady of Peace Catholic Elementary School in Bells Corners. The event, for which teachers, students and parents have been preparing for an entire school year, culminated with a musical performed by the choir and library technician Michelle Costello. The musical, which ran through songs and skits to represent each of the five decades the school has been in existence, dealt with the changing technology and cultural landscape. “When they showed the reels I can remember how difficult they were to operate,” said Nicole Dickinson, who taught at the school from the ’70s until she retired in 1992. When the school opened it was a different time and students came to

school dressed in a shirt and tie or their formal dresses. And when you got the strap at school, it was likely you were going to get it at home too. “There was a lot more respect for the profession then,” said McCarthy, who went to the school from 1961 to 1967 before he taught there later as an adult. McCarthy added that he could remember getting the strap once in Grade 3 and then dreading the talk he would receive from his father once he got home. When OLP started in 1960, it was known as RCSS #4 and was a fourroom schoolhouse. By 1967 it was known as CRCSS (Carleton Roman Cahtolic Spearate School) for Goulbourn, Kanata and Nepean. McCarthy said he could remember when he came to the school from one in Kanata where the parents all worked at Mitel. “At that school we had Apple 2Es and then I came here and they had these huge computers called Icons with track balls the size of a bowling ball,” he said. “If one went down then the whole system went down it was so frustrating.” But whatever they taught with, all the teachers at the celebration agreed they do it for the kids.

Josée Tremblay, who has taught at OLP since 1991, said she likes her job because she gets to teach the whole family. “I teach French so I get them in Grade 2 and then again in Grade 6,” she said. “And then they come back to me and they are mothers and fathers. It is very rewarding.” Principal, Ann Marie Duncan only started at OLP last June, but she said she was immediately struck by the warmth of the school community. “I was told that the school was a mainstay in the community and I believe it,” she said. Zone six — Knoxdale-Merivale/College trustee Gordon Butler, congratulated the school on its success and remembered being in Grade 2 at St. Thomas Catholic School in Crystal Beach during one of the scenes depicted in the musical. The class was watching the 1972 hockey game when Canada beat Russia 4-3 in Moscow. “This was a wonderful trip down memory lane,” he said. Director of Education Julian Hanlon thanked the former staff in attendance for their commitment to Catholic education. “The times may change, but the staff are always here to help,” he said.

Career fair explodes with I.T. business opportunities LJ MATHESON laurie.matheson@metroland.com

It was a match made… at the Nepean Sportsplex. Not only was it a dream come true for job seekers in the information technology (IT) sector but it was a perfect opportunity to recruiters from some 40 local companies to meet with potential employees. The fourth annual :ITO 2.0 career fair was a chance for those looking for work to meet potential bosses in a comfortable setting. “I love this atmosphere because it takes away the formality and the pressure of having

a one-on-one interview,” said Christine Dalrymple, a resident of Carleton Place who handed out all 15 of her resumes, including to Microsoft’s Bryan Clayton. “I’m looking for a project management type of position and meeting people here is a great way for them to meet me in person.” Clayton said Microsoft has over 100 positions across Canada they are looking to fill. “It’s not just technology… it’s relationship building. This (career fair) is the meeting place between the people and technology,” Clayton said. “From a job seeker’s point of view, it’s less intimidating and not as

stressful.” Networking, making connections in the technology industry and making the right fits are criteria that Karen Yates of :ITO 2.0 knows all about. She’s been the team’s employer consultant for the past 10 years. As such, she liaises with I.T. company managers and those seeking employment. “It’s about sending out the invitations to employers to get them here to the career fair and then opening the doors to those people who are looking to make that job connection,” she said. For Kanata’s Anna Dolisini, diving back into the workforce has been somewhat of a stressful time. Since being laid off from Nortel in 2002, she’s only had contract positions. “I’m looking for something fulltime,” said Dolisini, who has been working with :ITO 2.0 to hone her resume, explore her career options, access other employment opportunities and obtain job placement help. “I have been doing a lot of job training with :ITO 2.0 and they’ve been wonderful.” She added that looking for full time employment has been hard, “but hopefully, I see the market changing so there will be more opportunities.” Dolisini says she’s thankful for career fairs like this one where she has been able to get out and meet managers and recruiters who may have a place for her in their company. “The nice thing about this job fair is that :ITO 2.0 does all the market-

He too is a former Nortel employee who has been working through a lot of contract positions for the past few years. “Today is an opportunity for me to follow up with some potential employers,” he said. “I will send out some more resumés and get some leads on my next contract, which will hopefully turn into fulltime employment.” The :ITO 2.0 career fair organizers were expecting to see more than 2,000 people come through the doors. According to Fred Nesrallah, media spokesperson, said the event is a chance for perspective employees to have an on-the-spot

interview. “Many who visit will be in jobs already, but a lot will be out of work,” he said. “We have seen a lot of college and university graduates as well as job seekers from across the city. These companies here today are actually all hiring and this event is one where we can help fill some of those voids.” For over 10 years, :ITO 2.0 has been a service provider of knowledge based labour market intelligence as well as specialized career /training strategies bridging the skills gap between industry employers and high tech job seekers. :ITO 2.0 provides a wide variety of services to both employers as well as job seekers including labour market intelligence, labour force adjustment, outplacement, career transition services, industry recruitment and career event services.

Communication key on bus changes LAURA MUELLER laura.mueller@metroland.com

the system. Working on scheduling and providing detailed information to bus operators is also a priority, said Alain Mercier, the head of OC Transpo. These details will also help OC Transpo determine how many drivers it will need in the future as well as what type of bus will be needed for each route. The most important part of the work to be down before the new route system takes effect on Sept. 4 is communicating to riders how their commute will change. “We want to ensure that all customers have an effective, proper commute, so that it doesn’t snowball from other changes such as stop times,� Mercier said. The transit authority wants to “get customers engaged in the change,� Mercier said, and is looking for innovative ways to do that, through the media, advertising and other less-traditional methods. OC Transpo will be letting people know about the changes by advertising in print and on the radio, by providing updated maps and schedules (both hard copy and online at www.octranspo.com) and making the inline Travel Planner “go live� with the new routes before the changes take effect.

The city’s bus-route optimization has moved from the big picture of planning a sustainable transit map to the detail of outlining exactly what every route – and the approximately 9,500 stops on each route – will look like. By the end of the summer, the city’s transit authority will have ironed out the details of changes that “optimized� 103 routes (two-thirds of the routes in the system), but not before tackling thousands of minute details on each route. OC Transpo staff presented 17 additional tweaks to the route changes that have been made since the transit commission since the overhaul was approved on April 20. In most of the cases, transit service design manager Pat Scrimgeour said staff found enough time in the schedule to extend some routes beyond what was originally proposed. In Ottawa West and Nepean, the changes include: - Routes 87 and 140 will operate on the roadway that runs through the Canada Post complex at Heron Road and Riverside Drive, which will avoid two signaled intersections and save about a minute of travel time.

- Route 116 will now extend to Merivale Road and Viewmount Drive, which will re-instate some connections that would have been lost under the previously approved plans. - In order to serve churches in the Prince of Wales Drive area north of Heron (particularly the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints), there will be two special trips on Route 118 on Sundays – one around 12:30 p.m. and a return trip at around 5 p.m. • A limited service from Crystal Beach to Bells Corners will run on Route 152 (formerly part of Route 166). • On Route 182, trips to Herzberg will be extended to Schneider Road/ Carling Avenue. After rounds of public consultation and hours of debate, the major changes and cuts have been made. But now that the framework of a revised bus system is in place, the real heavy lifting begins. The city will need to update 6,000 transit signs, and bus stops and shelters will have to be moved. Some routes will even get a few new bus shelters. From co-ordinating with school boards to revising snow-clearing schedules and even upgrading intersections to enable buses to get through, OC Transpo is now getting into the nitty-gritty of overhauling

Water safety is everyone’s responsibility

A

s temperatures rise, many of us cool off by jumping in the water or going for a boat ride. Whether you dive into a pool, swim at the beach or cottage, or simply taking a leisurly boat ride, it is important to keep water safety in mind. Safe Boating Week is May 21-29 and typically announces the start of the boating season. Drinking and boating is just as deadly as drinking and driving. According to the Ministry of Transportation, .05 blood alcohol concentration is enough to have a licence suspended. There is always a drowning risk around water, but children are especially vulnerable. The risk increases in spring as ponds, lakes and rivers begin to thaw and oftentimes, the flow is at its peak. Even though the outside air temperature is rising quickly, it gives a false sense of warmth. The water temperature of lakes and rivers is still dangerously cold. Children are curious creatures. They are often drawn to fast-flowing water but do not understand the dangers that are close at hand. Adult supervision of utmost importance, and it’s essential no matter how well your

child swims. For children under the age of five, drowning is the second leading cause of accidental death. Two-thirds of these drownings happen to those who never intended to get wet in the first place, but they are often drawn to the brink of potential disaster. Unattended children are especially at risk of drowning because they are mobile and very curious. You can plan to reduce the risks of drowning during the months ahead. Stay within arm’s reach of your child at all times in and around the water. Enrol your children in swimming lessons and learn CPR and First Aid. Always use a personal floatation device, like a life jacket, when you are in a boat or a watercraft. Be vigilant – drowning occurs most commonly in swimming pools, just when parents turn their backs for a split second. Install four-sided fencing around all pools, measuring at least 1.5 metres high and include a self-latching and self-closing gate. Raising the awareness of water safety and drowning prevention for parents, caregivers, children and youth is everyone’s responsibility. Be safe. Be water smart.

Why you don’t throw your column into the ring

M

y former Ottawa Citizen colleague Randall Denley has decided to abandon his newspaper column at least temporarily and run for the Conservatives in the next Ontario election. His opponent, the Liberal incumbent Bob Chiarelli, will be all but drooling as he sees a chance at revenge for the nasty things Denley has written about him over the years, beginning when Chiarelli was mayor of Ottawa. That’s one of the differences between columning and politics. In politics, your opponents can get revenge. In journalism, your opponents can issue a denial, or write a letter to the editor, both of which are less than satisfying. There are other differences, which help to explain why most columnists choose to remain columnists rather than enter politics: — A columnist does not have to smile all the time, or ever. — A columnist does not have to attend ribbon-cuttings and banquets in honour of causes he has never heard of. — A columnist finishes the day’s column and goes home. A politician goes on to the next event. — A columnist rarely turns on the TV to find someone denouncing him on the news.

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town — When a columnist is not interested in the burning issue of the day, he writes about something else, such as cats. When a politician is not interested in the burning issue of the day, he has to be interested in the burning issue of the day anyway. — A columnist does not have to pose wearing silly hats. — A politician’s enemies scour his previous speeches for embarrassing utterances or signs of flip-flop. A columnist’s previous utterances are safely wrapping fish. — Unless he chooses to write about them, nobody knows anything about a columnist’s family, hobbies or religious views. For a politician, all those things are on public display. — On a good newspaper, a columnist can publicly disagree with the policies of his bosses. Try that in any party caucus. — A columnist is allowed to have a sense of humour. Politicians who make

jokes are immediatley denounced by representatives of interest groups who are offended. There are, to be sure, some similarities in the two occupations. A columnist can dust off an old column on a slow day, and a politician can trot out an old speech. A politician can invent and demolish straw men. So can a columnist. Both politician and columnist develop the art of feigned outrage. Denley said an honourable thing in announcing his candidacy: “As a newspaper columnist you can say: ‘Other people should do this, other people should do that.’ You can’t really do anything yourself. If you’re going to make a difference, you have to get involved in the process.” Some columnists would disagree, saying that they are contributing to the process by influencing public opinion. But it is true that it takes far more courage to become actively involved than it does to stand on the sidelines making pungent comments. Other columnists have made the decision Denley has made. It worked for some of them. Christy Clark once wrote a weekly column in Vancouver and is now premier of British Columbia. On the other hand, Michael Valpy, a Toronto Globe and Mail political writer, ran

unsuccessfully for the NDP in 2000 and returned to the paper where he does not write about politics. Then there is Garth Turner, a business columnist for the Toronto Sun who sat for many years as a Conservative member of Parliament but was tossed from the caucus in 2006 for being too independent, a trait columnists have. Then he moved to the Liberals and was defeated. Another guy who used to write a column: Michael Ignatieff. That leads to the biggest difference between the politician and the columnist: When the readers don’t like a columnist on election day, he’s still a columnist the next day. That’s why most columnists stay put, and are grateful to do so.

Algonquin launches new hospitality and tourism degree program JENNIFER MCINTOSH jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

Thanks to three years of hard work, Algonquin College was able to launch its new hospitality and tourism management degree program on May 17. The four-year program will be a mix of applied, frontline work and critical thinking. Program coordinator and developer Michael Tarnowski said the course was designed in response to calls from the business community. “Our industry partners who help us with our diploma program asked us to bring in a degree because they were really seeing a vacuum in the industry and a lack of leadership,” he said. The first students will be welcomed in September, with two intakes — the first will be high school graduates and the second will be students who have graduated from the existing diploma program. Tarnowski said the students from the diploma program will be able to take a series of bridging courses and be admitted into the degree’s third year. Anticipation is high and Tarnowski said that enrolment numbers are already higher than projected. In the first two years of the program students will be training for their cooperative placements with applied work in places like the college’s Restaurant International and the wine labs. “We will do a lot of applied work up front to get the students ready for their two co-ops,” Tarnowski said. “Frontline experience is absolutely essential in our industry, but we want our students to be able to solve in-the-moment problems and have long-term visions for

Matthew Gifford, a student registered in the new program, said in a press release that he has been in the industry for about five years, but he wanted to go back to school and learn how to help himself move up the ranks faster. “After looking into a few costly schools overseas, I was thrilled to learn Algonquin College was launching this new program in the fall,” he said.

Affordability tips for first time homebuyers

(NC)—Owning your first home is a milestone as well as an exciting experience. However, many first time homebuyers can be nervous about the process, as they don’t know what to expect or how to make the best decisions. RBC Royal Bank research shows that homebuyers between the ages of 18–34 worry that buying their first home will mean living outside their means. “With the proper advice and budgeting tools you can still live within your means and purchase your first home – you can do both,” said Kavita Joshi, director, Client Strategies. “A mortgage specialist can help you understand all the financial aspects of owning your first home, by offering tailored advice and support.” Joshi offers a number of tips to help first time homebuyers stretch their dollars even further: Determine how much you can afford – before beginning your house search in earnest, review down payment options, household income, current debt, estimated monthly housing–related costs and closing costs.

CREATE YOUR WISH LIST ESTABLISH YOUR DOWN PAYMENT AMOUNT It’s helpful to establish an amount you are comfortable with prior to making your purchase. You’ll be glad to know that there are options available depending on how much of a down payment you can afford. FACTOR IN YOUR CLOSING COSTS It helps to know upfront what your closing costs will be. When calculating closing costs, it’s fairly safe to assume you’ll need at least an additional 1.5 per cent of the purchase price. GET PRE–APPROVED FOR YOUR MORTGAGE If you are unsure you qualify for a mortgage or how much you qualify for, speak with a mortgage specialist who can see if you can pre–qualify, so you’ll know what your mortgage options will be. UNDERSTAND YOUR PAYMENT OPTIONS Many first–time homebuyers give more thought to interest rates than the mortgage solution itself. While rates certainly have to be considered, the different types of mortgages, various payment structures, terms and

flexibility may have a much greater bearing on your overall costs of homeownership. CONSIDER UNFORESEEN EXPENSES AHEAD OF TIME When you’re buying a home for the first time, there are a number of related costs that you may not be familiar with, including: professional home inspection, lawyer fees, land transfer tax, property tax and property insurance. You also should take into account “one–time” costs, such as moving expenses, and ongoing costs, such as heating, electricity and water. BE REALISTIC You may be under–or over–estimating how much you can afford for a home. Online mortgage calculators make it easier to estimate accurately, by providing you with information on the maximum mortgage payment amount you can afford each month. Check your local mortgage specialist or bank for up to date information. LOVE YOUR NEW HOME Once you’ve received the keys to your new home, it will be time to sit back and enjoy every minute of being a new homeowner.

Ottawa wins bid to host women’s world hockey championship BLAIR EDWARDS

GROW THE GAME

blair.edwards@metroland.com

Ottawa has won its bid to host the 2013 IIHF women’s world hockey championship. The nation’s capital has beat out two other cities competing to host the event, announced Hockey Canada today, May 18. The games will be played in April, 2013 at Scotiabank Place and the Nepean Sportsplex. The event will generate $35 million in economic activity, with $20 million from the games and $15 million from the Ontario Women’s Hockey Association provincial championships. A minimum of $500,000 in profit will go to minor hockey programs across Canada. The Ontario Women’s Hockey Association will host its provincial championships during the worlds and will bring more than 500 girls’ teams and 12,000 players of all ages to Ottawa. “Today’s announcement reaffirms my continued commitment to bring world class events to Ottawa,� said Eugene Melnyk, owner of the Ottawa Senators hockey club. “We have been strong supporters of women’s hockey for the last decade. The opportunity to host the 2013 IIHF World Women’s Championship is a culmination of that decade-long commitment.�

Mayor Jim Watson and Gloucester South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches share the news that Ottawa will host the 2013 IIHF World Women’s Championship of Hockey. The event will draw thousands of tourists internationally and generate $20 million for the local economy. Hockey fans can purchase tickets to the event by creating an account with Hockey Canada – only 3,000 tickets will be available in the 100 level of the Scotiabank Place arena. “Ottawa is a real hockey town,� said

*LUOV¡ 1LJKW2XW

Michael Chan, Ontario’s tourism minister. “With 21 games over eight days, this is a first-class sports event that will generate local economic acitivity and boost tourism.�

Ottawa’s girls’ hockey minor leagues can expect a boost in membership with both the world championship and provincial finals coming to Ottawa in April, said Jody Thomas, the president of the Kanata Girls Hockey Association. “I think it’s just an enormous and wonderful opportunity for them to see hockey at the highest levels and inspire our players to be the best players they can,� said Thomas, who is also the president of the Ottawa Senators Women’s Hockey Club. Manitoba experienced a growth spurt in girls’ hockey after Winnipeg hosted the 2007 IIHF women’s world hockey championship, said Scott Farley, vicepresident of marketing and events for Hockey Canada. “We expect the same in the Ottawa area,� Farley said. The Ontario Women’s Hockey Association and the Ottawa Senators are looking at providing activities between periods during world championship games for minor league players. “To be part of this hockey festival I think will be a memory of a lifetime for our players,� said Thomas. “I think it continues to grow the game.� Team Canada may feature a few local players, said Thomas, including Jamie Lee Rattray (Kanata), Isabelle Menard (Orleans) and Stephanie McEough (Gloucester).

Knowing that stand-out defencemen Zach Carriveau and Grant Telfer would be moving on from the Central Canada Hockey League (CCHL), the Nepean Raiders looked to their blue line at the draft on May 18. The Raiders used their first pick, seventh overall, to select Nepean native Mitchell Allen of the Ottawa Senators minor midget AAAs at the Earl Armstrong Arena. The five-foot-11, 170-pounder led the Sens in scoring from the backend with three goals and 16 points in 28 Ontario East Minor Hockey League games. The Raiders then selected three more AAA bantam blue-liners in the second round – Mathieu Galipeau of the Eastern Ontario Wild, 15th; Michael Constantine of the Sens, 19th; and Mitchell Kellar of the Sens, 21st. Each player will have to return to him minor-hockey team for minor midget. “Good defencemen are just hard to come by,” Raiders general manager and head coach Peter Goulet said. “I don’t like passing up on good defencemen.” Growing up playing through the Nepean ranks, Allen said he’ll cherish playing for his hometown team. “It’s right in my backyard, so it’s per-

fect,” the 16-year-old said. “Furthering my hockey career with Nepean would be great. “I’m just going to come in and work really hard all summer.” Goulet didn’t want to predict if Allen would crack the team’s opening-night lineup, but believes the future is bright for him. “It’s too hard to predict that right now, he said. “He’s definitely on our radar screen. We think he’s a great young hockey player and a great young man.” In other news, Nepean acquired forward Brandon Lesway and Gloucester’s second-round pick – used to draft Kellar – from Kemptville in exchange for a player development fee and rights to protect third overall pick Blaine Bryon. Lesway has signed with the Ontario Hockey League’s Kitchener Rangers and isn’t likely to play for the Raiders this season. He recorded 28 points in 62 games for Kemptville last season.
