A provincial labour union slammed the practice of rolling closures at the Queensway Carleton Hospital to make up for funding shortfalls. In a press conference held at the national Canadian Union of Public Employees office on June 6 to obtain public support, Local CUPE 2875 vice-president Peter Anis said that the two-week closures of three operating rooms in July and August would likely result in a backlog of 240 surgeries. The Local 2875 represents the nurses and support staff at the Queensway Carleton. During that period, emergency, cancer or wait-time targeted surgeries such as hip and knee replacements would proceed as usual, but elective procedures such as hernia operations and plastic surgery would be postponed. Anis said when the union met with management they talked about extending the closures into December, March and February. See ‘City’, page 2

Rolling closures should account for shortfalls From ‘Rolling’, page 1 The hospital is yet to receive its funding allocation for the current fiscal year, so the closures are to make up for multi-million dollar budget shortfalls. Anis said the closures were nothing new, with the hospital normally closing three of its eight operating rooms to accommodate vacations, but he worries with the increased use of this practice in the winter, that the hospital won’t be able to make up for the backlog of surgeries. “It will put more pressure on the already busy times,” he said. “And if they find this formula works, what’s to stop them from making it permanent?” Chief executive officer of the hospital, Tom Sch-

onberg, accused CUPE of creating a grim picture. “The original plan without knowing the budget included potential shutdowns for March and February, but when I met with them last Thursday I said I was optimistic that we would be able to avoid budget-related slowdowns in December,” he said. Schonberg said that negotiations with the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care would continue into June and hopefully result in a 1.5 per cent increase in the hospital’s budget. “There are monies we are going to get because of wait time strategies and monies for the expansion because of increasing patient volumes,” he said. “So I am optimistic.” Anis said the union decided to make a public statement because public support ended up reversing the decision to use rolling closures at other Ottawa hospitals. Michael Hurley, Ontario Council of Hospital Unions president, said that Ontario has the lowest number of hospital beds per 1,000 people of any province in the country. He also said our hospitals are the most efficient, spending $250 less per citizen than any other province. While Anis said he didn’t know what to suggest to the hospital to make up for the budget shortfalls, he said cancelling surgeries was not the way. “We need to be having these surgeries,” he said. About 50 staff will be displaced as a result of the closures and the union is currently working on redeployment — which may mean staff working in another area of the hospital. Anis said approximately five staff members would have to be temporarily laid off during the closure period. Watch www.yourottawaregion.com for updates.

Condos for Bells Corners? LAURA MUELLER laura.mueller@metroland.com

After a year of rumours and planning, condos are set to come to Bells Corners, says Coun. Rick Chiarelli. Attracting multi-residential housing to the main strip of the community, now called Lloyd Francis Boulevard, is the next step in the councillor and business improvement area’s (BIA) plans to revitalize Bells Corners. “It would represent a significant change to the strip,” Chiarelli said. “A mix of uses along the street is better, and it would help balance traffic throughout the day.” Chiarelli said an application for a multi-residential building for the site of the former Vox night club in Bells Corners will be filed within a couple of weeks, with a possible second application to follow. Chiarelli said he expects at least one “major” building, but he wouldn’t say how large – or tall – the building might be. And it won’t be a rental apartment building, Chiarelli assured. He says Bells Corners will ride the condo wave that has made other Ottawa neighbourhoods, such as Westboro,

into the most popular places to live. That’s the main concern the councillor has heard from residents as he has chatted with them over the past year. “Some residents are really opposed to it because of the height.” Most of the buildings along the strip are in the two-storey range. But Chiarelli is working to convince residents that taller multi-residential buildings on Lloyd Francis Boulevard will mean there is less pressure to develop the surrounding areas. That pressure will begin when the Department of National Defense moves its operations to the former Nortel campus, which will likely mean some DND employees will want to relocate closer to the Kanata location, and Bells Corners is well-placed as a viable option for new housing. Without multi-residential housing, Bells Corners will begin to see situations where three houses are built on what used to be two lots due to intensification pressure, Chiarelli said. Seniors supports the move to multi-res housing, the councillor said, because condos offer a easier – but still independent – lifestyle for people as they age.

‘Palliative care needs to be part of transformation of healthcare’: Alex Munter jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

When Alex Munter is asked how the Local Integrated Health Network system works, he likens it to air traffic controllers. “We don’t fly the planes, but we make sure everyone gets there safely,” he said at the annual general meeting of Friends of Hospice Ottawa, held at the Bells Corners United Church on June 2. In 2008, Friends of Hospice Ottawa started to receive an annual grant from the LHIN that would account for 29 per cent of the charity’s annual operating costs. Munter championed that decision during his talk at the annual general meeting, saying that palliative care needs to be part of the transformation in healthcare. “Our healthcare system was developed in the 1960s and based on an acute care model that doesn’t work anymore,” Munter said, adding that 80 per cent of Canadians over 45 have at least one chronic disease. “Their needs aren’t being met by acute, episodic intervention,” he said. Munter said Friends of Hospice is filling a need in the community. Friends of Hospice Ottawa is a registered charity dedicated to providing coordinated community-based hospice palliative care programs. Hospice pal-

liative care aims to relieve suffering and improve the quality of living and dying. It serves people in their homes in the west end of Ottawa — from Bells Corners to Woodlawn. “Only 15 per cent of people have palliative care available in their own home,” he said, adding that when he was on the Ottawa Carleton Regional Region District Health Council in the 1990’s seniors needing an alternative level of care taking up hospital beds was an issue. “We have some of the world’s best equipment for our clinicians,” he said. “The General campus of the Ottawa Hospital just got a brand new MRI machine, but doctors are still sending out faxes. The administration is 10 years behind, so we could do things like a centralized waiting list. We could easily do that to improve wait times.” Munter said that there is a need for people to be able to end their journeys in their own homes and Friends of Hospice represents what the healthcare system can and should become. “Please continue to do what you do with people who are on their final journey,” he said. “We will get there.” Beth Ada, outgoing president of the Friends of Hospice board of directors, said the organization has received more support than ever this year — including a $92,000 grant from the Trillium Foundation.

Executive director Kathryn Logsdail-Downer said clients are growing at a rate of 25 per cent per year and a third of clients are receiving support from three or more services the organization offers. While Logsdail-Downer said that most of the clients have cancer or AIDS, there has been a 10 per cent increase of clients with other forms of chronic illness. “The community hospice program is proven to lengthen the amount of time people get to remain in their homes,” Logsdail-Downer said. Carolyn Byck, a nurse with Friends of Hospice, shared the story of one of their clients. For privacy reasons, she called her “Alice.” Alice stays in her home, despite having a life-limiting illness, being hearing and visually impaired and being restricted to her wheelchair. She receives a visit from a Friends of Hospice volunteer once a week to take her shopping or just to have a chat. “We can’t add days to one’s life,” Byck said, “but we can add life to one’s day.”

Managed with pride by CAREGARD

Would you pay more for your electricity? Tom Heintzman, co-founder and president of Bullfrog Power is hoping that you do. The company, which was founded in 2004, involves persuading consumers and businesses to pay more than they need to for electricity, in order to support green energy generation. Heintzman said the average homeowner could help reduce their overall consumption and make greener choices for less than $1 per day. Heintzman was speaking as part of Algonquin College’s Champions of Sustainability Series held on June 1. “People can make choices about the food they buy or the clothes to lessen their environmental impact, but there is very little choice in energy consumption — which obviously has the largest impact on the environment,” Heintzman said. Choice is how the idea for Bullfrog was born. Thanks to the company, 8,000 homes and 1,100 businesses across the country are reducing their carbon footprint by paying more for their electricity. Bullfrog’s customers continue to use power normally, but the company pumps into the grid an equivalent amount of electricity it buys at a premium from renewable projects across the country. The event highlighted sustainable choices in the menu as well, with the college’s chef Bob Gélinas telling guests

about the sustainable menu choices. The event, which was put together as part of a partnership between the college, the City of Ottawa and the Ottawa Chamber of Commerce’s environmental committee, was powered with 100 per cent green electricity. The college was attempting to make the event carbon neutral by greening the events power requirements with Bullfrog and choosing sustainable food items. “We will be scoring the luncheon on the college’s website in a few days,” said Doug Witherspoon the executive director of advancement at Algonquin College. The profits from the luncheon were to go to provide a bursary for the college’s green business management program. Erin Kelly, executive director of the Ottawa Chamber of Commerce, said that the speaker series would continue into the fall and the chamber’s environmental committee’s goal was to influence government on sustainability issues. Heintzman said the voluntary role of consumers and having conversations about the environment are key, as part of the speech he noted some influential people — like Gord Downie of the Tragically Hip — who had signed up for Bullfrog Power. “By making clean energy choices in their homes and businesses, individuals can reduce their emissions footprint, support the development of new renewable generation in Canada and send a powerful message to business leaders and policy makers that green energy is important to our environment and our economy,” Heintzman said.

Grads prep for post secondary JENNIFER MCINTOSH jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

While younger students are thinking of camping trips and lazy days on the beach, the Merivale High School seniors are pondering some pretty big questions about their future. To help them with planning, guidance counsellor Janice Johnston arranged to have a panels of Merivale alumni come back and share their experiences from their first year of university. It’s all about timing and organization a lot of the university veterans warned. “Don’t leave assignments until the last minute,” said Karen Cheung, who is currently taking radio and television broadcasting at Ryerson University. “I remember once, I finished an assignment and then the computer wouldn’t release the disk. It literally ate my homework. I was just lucky to have a professor who was understanding.” Travis Suitor, a recent graduate of the firefighter program at Algonquin College, echoed his peer’s comments. “You have to decide what really needs to get done and set priorities,” he said. The panel was grilled on everything from assignments to their social life. “You don’t want to be a bookworm,” said Daniel Hanrahan, a business student at Carleton University. “The connec-

tions you make in university might last a lifetime and could help you with job opportunities.” Kristine Gai, who is studying commerce at Queen’s University, said that she became part of her school’s commerce society. “We are a tight-knit community and we help each other,” she said. For Suitor, who may have to work for 10 years before successfully landing a job in his career choice, connections are everything. Suitor will be applying to volunteer with the Stittsville Fire Department, while he waits for Ottawa to begin hiring again — something it only does every two years. “You really have to show that you have experience,” said Suitor, whose course lasted three semesters, paid $12,000 for his schooling. Others talked about spending upwards of $16,000 per year on lodging, books and residence fees. “You just have to apply for everything,” Cheung said, adding that she received so many scholarships in her first year that she is going to Banff this summer. Johnston reminded students that the deadline to apply for the Queen Elizabeth Aiming for the Top Scholarship. Students who apply to the Ontario Student’s Assistance Program before the end of June are eligible to be considered for the scholarship.

In an effort to be “proactive� about renaming the City of Ottawa archives, the city has issued a 30-day callout for name suggestions. The renaming process kicked off when Mayor Jim Watson rescinded his controversial suggestion to name the new building in Nepean after former mayor Charlotte Whitton. Instead, the name will be chosen by following the city’s own policies that were created to guide the commemorative naming policy – but with a twist. Given the level of interest in naming the Central Archives Ottawa Public Library Materials Centre, city spokesperson Jocelyne Turner said city staff is acting “proactively� to solicit possible names. Normally, the commemorative naming considers individual name suggestions for city property such as buildings, roads and parks. However, for the archives, the process will be slightly different. Each suggestion will be investigated to see if it complies with the city’s commemorative naming policy (for instance, the same name cannot be used twice for safety reasons). The suggestions that comply will then be considered in bulk to determine which name best suits the city archives building. Members of the committee include the city clerk (or representative), the mayor, the ward councillor (in this case, College Ward Coun. Rick Chiarelli) and the general managers of several city departments (people servic-

Some south-end residents and councillors aren’t happy that a long-term plan to expand Prince of Wales Drive would mean portions of 127 properties may need to be expropriated. Several properties are at risk of having to be completely bought out, according to a city report. A 10.6-kilometre stretch of northsouth roadway between Fisher and Woodroofe avenues needs to be widened from two to four lanes in the coming decades, with the project’s completion expected in 2031. The preliminary budget for the ambitious project includes $119 million for construction and property acquisition costs. City staff said “most” of the costs will be spent on construction, not buying land. An additional $27 million in design and project management costs are expected, plus a $29million contingency fund, for a total of $175 million. Pending a city council vote, the June 1 decision means the city will undertake an environmental assessment to study the impact of the proposed project, but money to actually rebuild the road would need to be approved in the future. Losing portions of properties was not the only concern raised when the city’s transportation committee discussed the environmental assessment

study for the project on June 1. Before approving the study with a few changes, the committee heard from several residents who were worried about how noise barriers would affect their quality of life. Residents who live in the Waterford Drive area feel they will be particularly negatively impacted by the project, which would include noise barriers a metre away from the patios of six homes at the south end of the community. Residents were alarmed when initial plans did not include any noise barriers, but when barriers were added to the project, residents were concerned about the look and placement of them. Terri Grannary, the owners of one of those six homes, said she was happy that Coun. Steve Desroches asked city staff to work with the National Capital Commission to negotiate noise barriers on city right-of-ways, further away from Waterford homes. The issue is that the area is surrounded by views of the Rideau River (a UNESCO heritage site) and Greenbelt lands that are managed by the NCC. But Grannary said the city needs to work with the NCC to overcome those difficulties, because otherwise, residents like her are the ones who will have to deal with the negative effects of the expansion. “Reduce property values substantially,” Grannary said. “We paid a premium to enjoy these views.”

While a noise barrier is needed, residents argued, the proposed barrier is not in the right place. It would also cut off access for some Waterford residents to a shared park green space, argued Terry Phair, the president of the Ottawa-Carleton Standard Condominium Corporation, representing the newest phase of Waterford that is closest to Prince of Wales. Additional traffic on Prince of Wales wouldn’t just mean more noise, it would increase ground vibrations that could impact people’s homes, said Bruce Ricketts, who lives at Baypoint Crescent. The minor changes made to the project at the June 1 meeting included: directing city staff to work on a road alignment that requires less expropriation, to attempt to provide more berms and landscaping along Prince of Wales, and to work with the NCC on the potential location for noise barriers and to fund two cattle crossing tunnels. Approximately 80 well or septic systems would be affected by the construction. Most of those homes are located from south of Merivale Road to the South Greenbelt boundary, within the Greenbelt and between of Amberwood Drive to Fisher Avenue. Municipal water and sewer services could be extended to many of those properties, but around five would need to have their septic systems moved to another spot on the property.

Jo Marr, a native of Bells Corners, has shot movies all around the world. The veteran filmmaker returned home last year to shoot “Going Thru a Thing� — a film that is loosely based on the relationship between his brother and his daughter. “The dad is a screw up in the eyes of his 13-year-old daughter, but a teacher’s strike means she has no one to coach her basketball team, so the two of them are forced to bond,� Marr said. The film, set to be released on DVD in the fall, was available for a private screening at the new Centrepointe Studio Theatre on May 31, with donations going to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Held in partnership with College Coun. Rick Chiarelli’s office, Marr called the event a success. “Chiarelli wants to do it again and I would be absolutely pleased with that,� Marr said. One of the organizers of Film Tiger, which provides production services for partners looking to maximize film and television budgets, Marr said the shoot in Ottawa was his first. “As a result of the financial crisis, the film industry has changed dramatically,� he said said. “So I decided to take a break and come home and visit my family. It was a dream come true to be able to make a film in my own backyard of Bells Corners.� The filming began last July and was done in Bells Corners and Stittsville. Stittsville resident Aelah Thomson was a rare find for Marr, who saw Aelah and her mother Sandra in a restaurant. “She just had the right look,� Marr said, adding that it took some convincing. “But it was worth it, she was so calm behind the cam-

NCSSAA has some explaining to do

T

he National Capital Secondary School Athletic Association has some explaining to do. Over the course of the past month, Ottawa’s regional high school sports body has stripped a championship title from the Earl of March Lions senior boys’ rugby team and disqualified both Earl and the Louis Riel Rebelles senior girls’ soccer teams from competing in their sports’ provincial finals. All because of minor clerical errors – each of the teams’ coaches forgot to enter a player’s name on the Ontario Federation of Schools Athletic Associations’ website roster. The Rebelles players were so upset they went to court and won a temporary injunction allowing the team to play in the OFSAA championship last week.

It was a crushing decision for Colonel By’s girls’ soccer team, who had won the city championship after the disqualification of the Rebelles in the city semifinals. They were sent home from the OFSSAA finals in Hamilton on a bus. Then there are the two teams from Glebe – the school’s boys’ rugby team was awarded the city championship after the disqualification of Earl, and Glebe’s girls’ soccer team lost the city finals to Colonel By. Who’s to say they wouldn’t have beaten Louis Riel if the Rebelles had advanced to the city’s championship final? Five teams were ultimately affected along with dozens of players and parents — many of whom are looking for answers from the NCSSAA. This week, the NCSSAA reversed its decision and returned

Earl of March’s city championship, but no mention was made of any plans to fix the root of the problem — the rule itself. Marg McGregor, the CEO of Canadian Interuniversity Sport said the NCSSAA should review its eligibility rules and introduce less severe penalties for clerical errors. University’s varsity teams make innocent clerical errors all the time, said McGregor, but the penalty isn’t an automatic disqualification. The CIS lets the penalty fit the crime, often slapping a fine on teams that innocently break the association’s rules. The NCSSAA should follow their lead and impose less draconian penalties on teams that make clerical errors filling out a roster sheet. Hopefully they are considering that option right now.

It’s not your grandfather’s NHL, Winnipeg

M

ost people are pretty happy that Winnipeg has worked itself back into the National Hockey League. If there is a city where hockey belongs, Winnipeg is it. But amid the joyful voices are dire warnings. Winnipeg better sell out its arena every night, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman warns, or else. Winnipeg is too small, others say. No matter how much people love hockey in Winnipeg, there are not enough of them. Of course, we heard that lots in Ottawa when the Senators first began playing here almost 20 years ago. After the heady first couple of years, reality settled in. We had a losing team and people stopped going to see it. There were warnings then, some of them from the owner. People started going again, maybe because of the threats, but probably because the team began winning. When the team wins, the fans come. It’s a formula that works just about everywhere. When the team wins, other good things follow. Merchandise sold better. Corporate sponsors were easier to attract. The Senators began appearing on television more often, a helpful thing for the revenue stream. All of that can happen in Winnipeg,

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town which is about the same size as Ottawa, although there is a smaller population base to draw upon in the surrounding area. It will be great if it works in Winnipeg, if only to discredit the assumption that pro sports, and particularly hockey, have been working on for many years. That assumption is that population is more important than fan interest in determining a team’s future. Following that reasoning, the NHL expanded into a number of cities in which there was no interest in hockey but were really large. One of those cities is Atlanta, which has now lost its second franchise in 30 years (don’t forget the Flames, which moved to Calgary in the ‘80s.) The success of the new Winnipeg team will disprove the theory that hockey has become too big to survive in

medium-sized cities. Sure, it is big. The salaries are huge, and so are other costs. To pay them the teams set ticket prices discouragingly high. Can people in Winnipeg pay them? Apparently people in Ottawa can, although another losing season would be an interesting test. Those ticket prices are high. One report says that Winnipeg will have to charge an average of $80. Did you ever notice that if you tell someone you went to a Senators game, the question is inevitably: “Did you pay for your ticket?” It is always assumed that no one would go to the game unless they got a freebie somehow. Is everything getting too big? Look at all the people who are staying home, watching stuff on giant living room screens, rather than supporting the arts or their team. Stores are too big and too remote. The small one in your neighbourhood is gone. You have to get into your car to get to the large one. There are reports of a big cinema complex that will go into Lansdowne Park, causing smaller ones to be closed. So it goes. Even the Ottawa International Jazz Festival, which has always operated on a reasonable scale, has become too big. In order to attract enough paying customers to keep the festival going on its pres-

ent scale, the festival has to abandon jazz on its main stage in prime time. If it works, is that good or bad? Returning to smaller times, is not an option, experts say. If the jazz festival goes small, it loses corporate and government sponsorship. If a neighbourhood bookstore stays small, people who want to buy knickknacks and scented candles won’t go there. Apparently a bookstore that doesn’t sell scented candles goes out of business. The odds are that pro hockey is never going back to the days of affordable salaries and affordable tickets. Welcome back to the NHL, Winnipeg. Think about winning.

East Side Mario’s Celebrates 20 Years in Bells Corners Grant Webb can’t believe it’s been 20 years since he opened his East Side Mario’s. It was June 1991 when Grant and partners Roy Bartlett and Rick Haggar opened their doors in Bells Corners and welcomed everyone to the feel of ‘Little Italy’. Being the 17th East Side to open in Canada, and offering great Italian and American fare with a focus on family, friends and fun, East Side Mario’s had the recipe for success. ‘We can boast of having Nepean’s only rooftop patio, making our restaurant a unique destination’, says Grant. ‘And our Kids Eat Free on Mondays and Dinner & Movie Wednesdays, make us a popular choice with everyone’. Serving Nepean in other ways, East Side Mario’s Bells Corners location offers extensive local and community support to the Queensway Carleton Hospital, the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and the Nepean Hotspurs. The Barry Statham Memorial Charity Golf Tournament is held annually. The tournament is named after a loyal guest, a father of 4 past and present East Side employees. Proceeds go to the Queensway Carleton Hospital – Cardiac Unit. To celebrate their 20th year, Grant has planned a variety of events including an Alumni Party on June 17th. Everyone who has worked or is working at the Bells Corners location is welcome to attend. On June 16th, there is a VIP reception with live entertainment and complimentary appetizers. And from June 6th to June 19th, East Side Mario’s Bells Corners menu will showcase some of their most popular dishes at retro prices! ‘It’s not all about the past, though’, says Grant. ‘We’ve got great plans for the future, including renovations this fall which will carry us through the next 10 years.’ If you’d like to know more about the 20th Anniversary East Side Mario’s celebrations, please call 613.820.3278 or email nepean@eastsidemarios.com.

The decision to strip a Kanata high school boys rugby team of their city championship because of a clerical error is unfair, says the head of the governing body of Canadian university sports. The Earl of March Lions were disqualified after it was discovered the team’s coach failed to enter one of the players’ names into an online roster at the beginning of the year. When the error was discovered the Lions were told to return their trophy and to cancel plans to compete in the provincial championship tournament held in Oakville, Ont. from June 1 to 4. This week, the National Capital Secondary Schools Athletic Association reversed its decision and returned the championship trophy to Earl of March. The reversal comes after an Ontario court judge last week overturned an NCSSAA decision to disqualify the Louis Riel Rebelles senior girls’ soccer team over a similar administrative error. “In light of the recent court decision regarding the senior girls’ soccer team at Louis Riel, the NCSSAA executive has decided to grant the Earl of March senior boys’ rugby team the AAA/AAAA senior boys’ rugby championship,” said Cheryl Hyndman, president of the NCSSAA in a press release. But the press release made no mention of any plans to change the NCSSAA’s eligibility rules. Marg McGregor, the CEO of Canadian Interuniversity Sport, said the NCSSAA needs to review and change its eligibility rules. “I clearly think changes are merited because it is not a student-athlete friendly approach,” she said. “I’d be surprised if there’s not changes after what has oc-

curred in Ottawa.” This is the second time this year a team has been disqualified by the NCSSAA over a clerical error made on a team roster. Last week, the Louis Riel Rebelles girls’ senior soccer team learned it had been disqualified from competing in the league championship against the Glebe Gryphons. On June 1, an Ontario Court judge granted an injunction to the Rebelles allowing the team to compete in the provincial championship. Administrative slip-ups such as the ones made by the coaches at Earl and Louis Riel happen in university sports, said McGregor. “We don’t penalize the student athlete and we do not penalize the team by disqualifying them,” she said. “Mistakes happen. There should be penalities but it shouldn’t be the gravest penalty.” The CIS, for instance, will sometimes assess a financial penalty to a team. “The severity of the penalty should match the severity of the infraction,” said McGregor. Any rule changes will have to come from the NCSSAA, said Doug Gellatly, the executive director of the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations. “The associations are autonomous,” said Gellatly. Each of Ontario’s 18 regional athletic associations have their own constitutions, bylaws and rules which may or may not fall in line with OFSAA policy he said. The NCSSAA’s rules and regulations are set by the member schools, he said. “It’s not one person deciding,” he said. “It’s all the members and the member schools that send representatives that would vote on what their rules are.” The NCSSAA did not return the newspaper’s numerous phone calls.

Legacy Skate Park. But the one thing everyone could agree on was that Bells Corners needs a skate park. “I get to go to Centrepointe or Kanata, but sometimes I can’t go if my mom can’t drive me,” Matthew Sanderson, 11, said. “It would be really convenient to have one in Bells Corners.” His mom agrees, particularly after taking Matthew to Centrepointe and seeing the positive atmosphere at the park. She said all the users help each other out, especially if someone gets injured. “I fully support it,” Allison Sanderson said. “I’d love to have more things for them to do in Bells Corners.” Aside from the park being built in Bells Corners, Chiarelli said he’d like to have the park have an in-ground component. That aspect would allow the skate park to be more permanent as it couldn’t easily be transferred to another community. Therefore finding an ideal location is paramount. Chiarelli said he hopes the park will be built in a quiet, yet still densely-populated, area much like Centrepointe. He added that he will work will area community associations, the Bells Corners Business Improvement Area and emergency service personnel – who would like the site to be visible from the major roads and accessible for ambulances and law enforcement. But in the end, his experts will play an important role in the construction of their skate park as well. “There will have to be a level of community fundraising by the kids,” Chiarelli said. “That gives them ownership and it avoids a lot of problems down the line. When the park is operational they tend to be more protective of it and there’s far less vandalism.”

Skaters give their thoughts on potential Bells Corners skate park College Coun. Rick Chiarelli is bringing in the experts as he begins his public consultation board meetings for a new skate park in Bells Corners. A bus load of children departed from the Westcliffe Estates Community Fun Day on June 5 on route to skate parks in Nepean, Kanata and Goulbourn. Their mission: to test three parks and provide feedback for a design closer to home. “What we need to do is have the kids reach a consensus on what type of park they want,” Chiarelli said, noting that a second such test will occur in the coming weeks. “Once they know what style they want, we can then show them what means in terms of budget.” Once they know style and budget, a site is chosen. That’s when the formal public consultation will begin, Chiarelli said. While the timeline is uncertain at this point, Chiarelli noted that the process would be quicker if the park was built on city land as opposed to if it is privately owned or in the hands of the National Capital Commission. Right now the only stipulation is that the park will be constructed within Bells Corners. “We’re trying to leave it as flexible as possible at the start,” Chiarelli said. “We’ll start to narrow it down based on the needs the kids identify and the community’s choice.” Judging by the amount of varying options from the testers, Chiarelli might have a tough time reaching a consensus. Jesse Stewart, 11, said he wanted a park with lots of ramps with a secondary area for BMX bikes, while Daniel Cristea, 11, said he’d like to see many in-ground bowl areas as featured at Centrepointe’s

For wood materials, try Krylon’s outdoor spray stain, and to cover rust on metal – or to prevent it in the future – Krylon’s Outdoor Spaces has the colour and finish to suit any décor needs.

The powder room is a space you use every day – and that guests also view. For this small space, test out a new bold colour that you may not be as daring to use in other larger areas. According to industry experts, green is one of the most popular hues in the bathroom this year. Splash the walls with a coat of paint in a vibrant shade. Or simply update your decorative accents throughout the room with contrasting colours to make a beautiful design statement. FRESHEN UP FURNITURE

“Spray painting is a simple project that even a novice DIYer can feel comfortable doing,” said Katherine Merkle, Krylon brand manager. “With just a bit of prep work and a quality product, your project will be the envy of your neighbours in no time.”

AMAZING ACCENTS If you’ve grown tired of the colour scheme in your living areas or bedroom, updating fabric accents can make a dramatic change to your rooms for years to come… or simply for the season. To brighten chairs, loveseats and couches add new decorative throw pillows or drape a new blanket over the back. In the bedroom, a new comforter can add new style (and comfort) to the room. Plus, these accents can be quite affordable and are easily changeable when you’re ready for a new hue. With a few simple updates, your home’s style (and your mood) can be elevated with new bright colours. More information can be found online at www.projectsinacan.com. www.newscanada.com

SYNCHRONIZED SWIMMING The Nepean Synchro Swimmers are congratulated on a record performance at the Ontario Open Age Group Synchronized Swimming Championships. Nepean received top honours by winning the Club Aggregate Award Trophy for top synchronized swimming club in Ontario. Swimmers brought home four gold, four silver, and three bronze medals.

DANIEL NUGENT-BOWMAN daniel.bowman@metroland.com

In the wake of the May 31 announcement that the NHL’s Atlanta Thrashers are flying north to Winnipeg, former Jets defenceman Jim Kyte believes the league’s present economics will allow the city to house a successful team. The chair of Algonquin College’s marketing and management studies program, who was selected 12th overall by the team in the 1982 NHL draft, said the strengthening of the Canadian dollar – which hovered around 70 cents American when the team left for Phoenix in 1996 – combined with the league’s latest collective bargaining agreement should allow for financial stability. “I’ve always thought the salary cap is there for the owners to govern themselves,” Kyte said, citing the agreement that was signed in 2005. “For the owners, it was about shooting themselves in the foot by overspending on players. “Now there’s cost certainty in terms of what your salaries are going to be.” Kyte played with for the Jets for parts of seven seasons from 1983 to 1989, registering 11 goals and 25 assists while playing his home games at the old Winnipeg Arena. Now that Winnipeg has the MTS Centre, which opened in November 2004, Kyte feels the team is much better equipped to

handle NHL hockey. The only problem he foresees is the arena’s capacity of 15,015. “You’re going to need to have a full building, but it’s better to play in Winnipeg and for the next five to seven years and enjoy a great honeymoon period, than play in Atlanta in front of an empty building with no passionate fans,” Kyte said, referencing the Thrashers’ attendance woes. “The team does need to expand the building, there’s no question. It’s a gatedriven league.” Kyte added fans should be thrilled that one of the men funding the team, media magnate David Thomson, is the 17th richest person in the world according to Forbes magazine. Like Kyte, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman warned at the introductory press conference that the building must be full. But the former Jets blue-liner said Thomson owns a lot of real estate in downtown Winnipeg, which could offset many possible losses. “There are some spin-off benefits from the fact that the NHL team is playing in the building downtown. It’s going to make the value of his land higher too,” Kyte said. “It’s not a millionaire’s club anymore it’s a billionaire’s club. I think they (the fans) can feel pretty comfortable with the ownership.”
