Condos proposed for Meadowlands JENNIFER MCINTOSH jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

The “for rent” sign at 145 Meadowlands Dr. has been replaced by one letting residents know about a proposed condo building. Clausi Developments Ltd. bought the four properties between 145 and 151 Meadowlands with the purpose of building a four-storey condo. College Coun. Rick Chiarelli said the proposal would include somewhere between 49 and 51 units. The existing zoning allows for detached dwellings and other residential

uses, but a low-rise apartment building is not a permitted use. The developer would also require a change to the 9.5-metre height restrictionon the property, because the proposed building would be 12.5 metres tall. A report by a consultant hired by Clausi, Meloshe and Associates Ltd. says the main entrance of the building will be from Meadowlands Drive. “The site is currently well-served by transit along Woodroffe Avenue and Meadowlands Drive,” the report reads.

BEHIND BARS

Minister of Education Leona Dombrowsky was greeted with cheers from a class Laurier Carrière French Catholic school in Nepean on June 15, following an announcement that will create six additional classrooms. Chair of the French Catholic school board, Diane Doré, said the money comes just in time. “We have really seen our numbers grow,” she said. “We hope to have 20,000 students across the board by September. Our students are having some of the best successes and that’s thanks to the partnership we have with the province.” The funding announcement will mean approximately $650 million in new schools, and renovations and additions to existing schools. The money will be doled out over the next three years. The new funds will mean a French Catholic and a French public high school in Kanata and a new elementary school in Barrhaven – something Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa MacLeod has asked for several times to address the growing population in Barrhaven. “The Barrhaven and Riverside South communities of Nepean-Carleton are two of the fastestgrowing communities in all of Ottawa, if not all of Canada,” she said during a March 29 question period.

as minister of Infrastructure he sees the benefits of new schools to the local economy. “This allows us to focus on acheivements and better outcomes,” he said.

MacLeod said the population had nearly doubled from 2001 to 2006, reaching 52,000. “It…is expected to double again to over 100,000 within the next five years. That means there’s been a demand on the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board and the other three in my riding for more public education, she said.”

43 NEW SCHOOLS This year, work will begin on the 43 new schools – with another 30 receiving additions or retrofits. “Investing in our schools is critical to helping every child reach his or her potential and succeed,” Dombrowsky said. “Our government is committed to making the necessary investments and planning to ensure the future success of our children and grandchildren.” With files from Emma Jackson

phone hookups. Drouin said she has seen some increase in the number of calls she takes over the last two years, but she thinks it’s due in part to increased awareness of elder abuse. NROCRC held a tea and discussion at Merivale Mall as part of the proclamation, something Drouin said was to foster discussion between service providers and clients.

The city followed the rest of the world in acknowledging June 15 as Elder Abuse Awareness Day. The day has been recognized internationally since 2006 by the International Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse and was recognized with an official proclamation by KnoxdaleMerivale Coun. Keith Egli on June 15. Joyce Drouin, the elder abuse prevention coordinator for the Nepean, Rideau and Osgoode Community Resource Centre (NROCRC), said she was happy to see the city mark the important date. The elder abuse referral and response program at NROCRC gets $35,000 in annual funding from the Champlain Local Health Integration Network — an administrative body that manages health funding for agencies across eastern Ontario. That allows for Drouin to work parttime at NROCRC taking calls from the public concerning possible cases of abuse. “We take the call and then we assess whether the police need to be involved, or if they are in crisis and need to be moved. Then they are linked to the appropriate services,” Drouin said. Drouin said if she had a wish list she would love to have funding for a transition worker to help community

THE OTTAWA HOSPITAL FOUNDATION In October 2009, Rhea Ferguson’s father, Bill, was

diagnosed with esophageal gastric cancer at age 59. After successfully undergoing treatment at The Ottawa Hospital Cancer Centre, the family received some devastating news – the cancer was back, and this time, it was inoperable. Ferguson also knows more about the need for cancer research than the average person. She recently completed her Master’s degree in cancer epidemiology at McGill University, has worked with cancer researcher Dr. John Bell at The Ottawa Hospital Research Institute (OHRI) and is currently working as a database manager for the Hospital’s ovarian cancer bank. “Cancer research has always been a big passion for me,” said the 26-year-old Ottawa native. “There’s a history of cancer in my family. I lost all my grandparents to it.”

Ferguson, who is riding as a member of the Cancer Trailblazers, the OHRI Cancer Centre team, said she reached her fundraising goal of $1,500 in just two weeks. “People are so generous,” she said. “Everyone knows someone who is affected by the disease. “It would be amazing to have another treatment option that is… not so hard on the body,” she said. “The research needs to continue.” With her father’s health rapidly declining, she said she will be thinking about him when she does the ride on Sept. 10. “I’m hoping to be able to tell him about it,” she said. To support Rhea Ferguson’s ride, or to join her mother, Sheila Ferguson, as a volunteer, visit www.ridetherideau.ca

Looking for a way to make a difference, she learned about Ride the Rideau, a 100 km cycling fundraiser from Ottawa to Merrickville to support cancer research at The Ottawa Hospital, and immediately signed up. “It’s raising money for where I work, and it’s going to where my dad was treated,” she said. “It was a perfect fit.” Ferguson’s mother, Sheila, also got on board as a Ride the Rideau volunteer.

Ride the Rideau participant Rhea Ferguson with her parents, Sheila and Bill.

“My mom and I are involved because my dad is dying of cancer,” she said. “We want to do something for him. It’s a personal cause for both of us.”

Go Green with Metropolitan Rust Proofing Inc. You’re committed to protecting the environment? So are we. The first rule to go green is to aim for a long life for your vehicle. Anyway, the longer you keep your vehicle in good condition, the more you save on vehicle repairs and replacement costs. And that’s excellent for the environment: it holds off the moment your vehicle will go to the junkyard, and also delays the use of energy and material needed to manufacture a new vehicle to replace it. That’s where rust proofing steps in. But not just any rust proofing, from any supplier. Go with Metropolitan Rust Proofing Inc., the only company in Canada dedicated to vehicle rust proofing and registered to ISO 14 001 (2004) an Environmental Management System. You will be sure you are dealing with a company who emphasizes on recycling and waste management, and also preventive equipment maintenance. And there’s more. We now have green rust proofing! Ask for our treatment using our new vegetable oil based rust proofing. Contrary to products made of grease and solvents, our oil is biodegradable, so it’s harmless to the environment and it can treat 15% to 20% larger surface area than the same amount of traditional rust proofing. Also, it has no volatile organic compounds (VOC), which creates urban smog. Lastly, it will not harm your personal environment, because there is no dripping from the vehicle after the treatment. So you can go green for a long, long time...

Compassion in the service of care, Jamie MacDougall and the Order of Canada

Jamie MacDougall is the founder and Director of The Ottawa Hospital’s Institute for Rehabilitation Research and Development. He grew up in Overbrook, a brisk run from the General Campus. He went to high school at Lisgar, beside City Hall. His commitment to Ottawa is obvious. It is his commitment to Canada’s Deaf and persons with disability that led to his investiture in the Oder of Canada, on May 27. “You immediately think of all the people that made it possible, especially those with disabilities who inspired me. It is validation for thousands of people,” says MacDougall of the honour. Deafness and disability is personal for MacDougall. His parents, Peter and Gladys, were both deaf. His daughter, Paige, suffered a serious head injury at age 17, bringing his awareness of disabilities even closer to home. “People with disabilities have greater potential than we realize,” says MacDougall. “They have to overcome a lot of stereotypes…Just like everyone else, they aspire to realize their full potential.” Rusty Wendt, the head Carleton University’s Department of Psychology, understood this calling early on, convincing McDougall to take a summer job working with deaf parents seeking better means to communicate with their hearing children.

MacDougall left Carleton for McGill, getting his Masters and PhD in Clinical Psychology, studying the psychological impact of sensory deprivation and the link between deafness and literacy. Moving to Newfoundland’s Memorial University, he studied the impact of resettlement on cognitive development in children. From there, he went on to Rochester New York’s National Technical Institute for the Deaf. Then, back to McGill, where he spent 40 years teaching in the area of deafness and disability, and lead the Mackay Centre for Deaf and Disabled Children. His research is rooted in the everyday challenges faced by the Deaf and persons with disability. “Whether its children or adults,” says MacDougall, “I’ve been touched by the courage of extraordinary people.” Those people, in turn, have enabled valuable research. “The strength of clinically driven research is that it is both practical and sophisticated because of the problems it allows us to explore”. During one particularly complex case with a deaf Inuk in Nunavut who was said to have no language, MacDougall discovered the Inuit had their own sign language – Inuit Sign Language. His ability to extend clinical work beyond the hospital into the real world sets MacDougall apart. Working with advocacy groups such as the Canadian Hearing Society and the Canadian Association of the Deaf, he fought to ensure people with disabilities enjoy the full protection of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. His example brings The Ottawa Hospital a step closer to its vision of providing each patient with the world class care, exceptional service and compassion we would want for our loved ones.

Be a donor Imagine having the potential to save eight lives and enhance 75 more. It’s all possible by registering online as an organ and tissue donor. More than 1,500 Ontarians are on the list waiting for an organ transplant. Every three days, someone in this province dies while waiting for a life-saving transplant. Thousands more are waiting for a tissue transplant that could help enhance their lives. You can change that. All you have to do is take a few minutes out of your day to register as an organ and tissue donor online. Signed donor cards are no longer an acceptable option; the card may not be available when the information is needed and your wishes will go unknown.

The online registry stores your information in a Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care database and shares your decision to donate with the Trillium Gift of Life Network, Ontario’s organ and tissue donation agency. When you register, you ensure your decision to donate will be carried out in the event of your death – donation is only an option after all life-saving efforts have failed. Granted, death is a morbid subject – especially when it comes unexpectedly. But your organs and tissue won’t do any good for anyone when they’re six feet under. Corneas could help a woman see the world around her. A skin graft could help a burn victim heal. A new pair of lungs could

give a child with cystic fibrosis the breath to carry on. A new heart could give a father the chance to watch his son grow up. Anyone can donate regardless of pre-existing medical conditions and lifestyle. You can also choose what to give. The doctors assess the organs and tissue and make the decision from there as to what’s viable. The only requirement is that you are 16 years of age or older. Don’t leave the burden of choice up to your loved ones. Register online at www. beadonor.ca, visit a ServiceOntario centre or download and mail in the Gift of Life consent form to become an organ and tissue donor. Save a life. Save eight lives.

Yet another good reason to head for the lake Next week the fighting will start – the people who want to go off to the cottage for Canada Day against the people who want to stay in town and see Will and Kate. There are other subgroups, the people who want to stay in town to see the jazz festival and the people who want to stay in town for the fireworks, but that’s quite a different matter. You might think this upcoming battle is a battle of the sexes – the women wanting to see the royal couple and the men wanting to go fix the dock – but that’s old-fashioned stereotyped thinking. It’s more complicated than that. Back in April there were an awful lot of people, both male and female, who got up at five in the morning to watch the royal wedding on TV. Around that time, I remarked casually to a group of like-minded people that it was crazy and perhaps even un-Canadian of the CBC to send Peter Mansbridge over to London to cover the wedding just three days before a Canadian federal election. Turns out that many people were less like-minded than I thought. There was much leaping to the defence of the CBC and defending of the histori-

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town cal importance of the royal wedding. This, of course, doesn’t mean I was wrong. Anyway, the whole argument will now start up again. Some people will say that the way to go about being a good Canadian on Canada Day is to go to a lake and do something with a canoe or a tree. In doing so we are honouring our ancestors and our heritage. Others will argue that the Crown is part of what makes Canada special and that we should salute it in person whenever the opportunity arises. Not all of these people are old codgers. Now, it’s true that the motorcade isn’t going to stop for them, nor will they be able to get close enough to salute, but it’s the thought that counts.

It should also be noted that there is a rapidly growing number of Canadians whose heritage includes neither lakes and canoes nor royal couples from England. If you’re in that group, you might be very confused by it all, and should maybe just hang out at the jazz festival, where neither God Save the Queen nor O Canada is likely to be played. Mind you, you might hear the CF-18s and the 21 guns. One of the reasons the monarchy has survived so long in this country is that people tend to be rather good-natured about it. It helps that most of our royal visitors in recent times have been rather pleasant and it is difficult even for a committed republican to direct the necessary amount of outrage against them. Will and Kate, too, seem quite nice. If you want to work up a case against a royal visit it is necessary to search for some other reason. The only one that springs to mind is that having a princess in our midst might encourage more of our Canadian little girls to want to be princesses. Feminists and other sensible people have been worrying about the princess phenomenon for some time now – par-

ents dressing their daughters up in frilly pink costumes, sometimes even with little crowns and tiaras. It is the result of a marketing ploy some people blame on the Disney empire. Whoever is at fault, it isn’t doing much to persuade our daughters to become doctors, engineers, soldiers, hockey players or any of the things they can be that don’t involve marrying princes. It’s unlikely that Kate, when she gets to Ottawa, will be wearing a crown or anything frilly and pink, but you can never be too careful, which is why heading for the lake isn’t such a bad idea. Everybody knows you can’t be a princess and climb a tree at the same time. Ottawa This Week Nepean welcomes letters to the editor.

Who will fix hospital wait times? In a new radio ad and email campaign, Bob Chiarelli is crowing about the great success that his Liberal government has had in reducing health care wait times: “According to the Fraser Institute, Ontario now has the lowest wait times in Canada.” • Angiography - down by 39% • Cataract surgery - down by 61% • Hip replacement - down by 46% • Knee replacement - down by 55% • CT scan - down by 54% • Cancer surgery - down by 24% • General surgery - down by 12% While I agree that those are significant reductions, the job is not done. That still means that Ontarians are facing unacceptably high wait times for important medical care: • Angiography - 34 days • Cataract surgery -122 days

• Hip replacement - 188 days • Knee replacement - 199 days • CT scan - 37 days • Cancer surgery - 60 days • General surgery - 103 days One overwhelming factor in successfully treating many conditions is early diagnosis and rapid treatment. If your doctor suspects you may need cardiac surgery, but you have to wait 34 days for an angiography to be sure, you could be dead before you get the diagnosis. If your doctor orders a CT scan to find out if you have a tumour growing in your brian, it will continue growing for 37 days before they know about it and then you can wait another two months for cancer surgery to have it removed. Does that sound like world class health care? Not to me. Not to my mother who

has to wait more than six months to get routine hip surgery. Not to my grandfather who has to go through every day nearly blind waiting for cataract surgery. What is the plan for getting rid of these wait time entirely? How much will it cost? How long will it take? Ordinary people don’t care about partisan politics. They don’t care about who said what in question period. They have real problems and they deserve honest answers about real solutions. It is time for serious leadership in Ontario. What is your plan Mr. Hudak? Ms. Horwath?

The birds are singing A look inside the Wild Bird Care Centre in Nepean JENNIFER MCINTOSH jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

When you turn into the gravel driveway that leads to the Wild Bird Care Centre on Moodie Drive, you can see why one volunteer called it “the place that feeds the soul.” Deep in the woods, off of the Beaver Trail in the Greenbelt area surrounding Stony Swamp, the centre is home to 175 different species of birds and is open 365 days a year — barring Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. Just in the first part of June, the centre took in 290 birds — a number executive director Deborah Hass says will probably double by July. “We are absolutely swamped this time of year,” she said, as the centre takes in birds that suffer from everything from cat attacks to habitat destruction. One domestic duck, which has been temporarily named Strawberry, was found by a concerned citizen at Billings Bridge Plaza with neon-pink spray paint on her back. While the staff tries not to get attached to the birds, it has quickly become popular and garnered a spot on a blanket in the small office near the lunch room. “I can’t understand why anyone would do that,” Hass said. And there are hundreds more. One permanent resident — Violet, a turkey vulture that was shot — spends her days outside the centre. She will never be released back into the wild because she can no longer use one of her wings. While the mandate is to rehabilitate and release, Patty Summers, education tour coordinator at the centre, said that sometimes it just isn’t possible. In another room sits a hummingbird, whose tail was torn off by a cat. The little bird will likely be released this summer — but in the meantime, feeding her is a challenge. Staff attempted to use a sugary solution, but she was soon dubbed Jelly Bean, because her feathers soon became coated. Jelly Bean will be released into the

The babies sometimes have to be fed as often as every 20 minutes throughout the day, and the sound of their cries can often require the use of ear plugs. wild once her tail grows back fully. Hass said 95 per cent of medical treatments are done on site and requests from as far away as California. “Once we got a call from Nunavut for a Tundra swan, and another time we had to return an Atlantic puffin to Sudbury,” she said, adding that when calls come in, they can’t assume they are coming from Ottawa — or even Canada. It’s a long way from the first patient — a hummingbird named Pip — whose founder Kathy Nihei treated in her own home. Nihei, who passed away after a battle with cancer in 2009, is fondly remembered by staff and volunteers as having a way with the birds. “I have never met a person who was as kind hearted as Kathy,” Hass said. “And she cared passionately for animals.” Nihei lived with the birds in her home for 11 years before the building off Moodie Drive opened up. Now the centre rents from the National Capital Commission, and they are feeling the pinch. Hass estimates that utility bills and other costs have gone up about 30 per cent in the last few years. “We know our donors are feeling the pinch too,” she said. The centre accepts birds from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Visitors can come and see the centre and its patients from noon to 3 p.m. every day. During their busy summer months, Hass said the centre employs approximately nine staff including summer students. They also have about 20 or 30

During the fall and winter month, the staff dwindles down to three full time and one part-time member — which can be a challenge because some of the babies and smaller species need to be fed as often as every 30 minutes. Summers said she has been working

and volunteering at the centre off and on since she was 16 years old. The days are long and at times, can be shrill, but Hass said it is all worth it. “It’s the kind of job you can be proud of,” she said.

Dharma Developments second new home community

Orville Station is set to be located at the former site of the Canadian Pacific Stittsville Railway Station. This is a mixed-use project in which the residential phase of the development consists of 36 condominium suites in the heart of Stittsville Village. All models are priced starting from the mid $200’s. These stylish one bedroom lofts and two bedroom suites are ideal for home buyers looking for a low-maintenance, modern lifestyle in a healthy environment. Perhaps some of the most compelling aspects of this development are the location – in Stittsville because of the nature of this quaint village, but also the goals of the developer which include building a community for people that is focused on people. Providing those from different socialeconomic status either the opportunity to buy their first home in Stittsville or a home to down-size into and allow them stay in the community they love. The development was designed to make the best use of the land available on the site, in order to provide home owners with green space to admire

and enjoy; something that most condominium communities don’t provide. To give people a clean, healthy environment where they can breathe easy. To bring more people into the community without taking too much land to do it, help revitalize the south end of Stittsville Main Street and support the new and old businesses in the immediate vicinity. To take advantage of the public transit that is available right outside the front doors of Orville Station. Dharma is one step closer to bringing this innovative and important community to Stittsville. With foundation complete for the first phase and phase two selling, It also provides an example for other developers and the greater City of Ottawa to embrace sustainable development. With less and less land becoming available to developers at city limits to build homes, it is more important than ever to build consciously and responsibly within city limits. Building homes that fit within the existing community promote health, community growth and grow tax revenue for the city.

Dr. Bruce G. Firestone, a broker at Partners Advantage GMAC and Professor at Ottawa University is a proponent of this type of development and has shown support for Orville Station citing that we need to “build cities for people; cars are an important consideration, but they should be a lower priority.” He also thinks that if density in a neighbourhood increases, so should the property values of the surrounding homes as it brings more people to live, work and shop in the area. This increases demand because more people will want to live and work in the area and so pricing should increase as well.” This movement towards sustainable development of quality homes and maximized use of land helps our natural environment and maintains or improves the health of people within communities. We will see benefits for years to come – better health preservation which could lower impacts on the healthcare system, increased value in home investments, lower energy consumption and greater sense of community.

The city’s coolest cats managed to raised top dollar for the Ottawa Humane Society (OHS) on June 16. More than 150 guests and 17 “top dogs” and “cool cats” turned out and raised $75,000 during the charity’s first bailor-jail fundraiser as part of the groundbreaking campaign. Volunteers were “imprisoned” until they solicited their own bail from friends and family. “We were just blown away by the response,” said Bruce Roney, the executive director of the OHS. Even before the event, the groundbreaking campaign had garnered 85 per cent of the OHS goal of $9.5 million, according to Roney. The June 17 event called on pet lovers across the city to do time in a dog cage trying to raise money. Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Egli had managed to raise $1,200 part way through the night. “This is a great event and the new facility is going to really benefit the ward,” he said. Dave Smythe, who said he was jailed

the size of the older Champagne Avenue facility. Roney said the air quality is also largely improved, nearing that of hospitals. The animals will be housed in glass enclosures — something Roney said will help reduce their anxiety. There will also be a year-round cat porch and more surgical tables. Roney said the new facility would have better hours and they plan to offer things like obedience classes, grooming and classes for pregnant women on how to introduce your pet to your new baby.

Tom Green has been going back to his comedy roots. The Gloucester native and Algonquin College grad has been touring for the last two years getting back into the standup scene and will be making a stop at the Elgin-Street Yuk Yuk’s on June 28. Green said he originally had a spot in Toronto and decided to come to Ottawa to see family and friends when he called up the owner of the comedy club in Ottawa to ask if he wanted him on stage. “I thought I’d do a show to keep up my stage legs while I was in town,” Green said, adding that he’s excited to perform in from of some friends. Green first started doing standup on the Ottawa scene when he was 15 years old, but later went on to take television broadcasting at Algonquin College, then to produce his own program, The Tom Green Show which ran on the Comedy Network and MTV. Green said that while he never dreamed of hosting Saturday Night Live or being on the cover of Rolling Stone while he was in class at the college, he did get there by doing what he set out to do. “I just sort of envisioned doing exactly what I did, by making my own show,” he said. Green is also well known for his roles in Freddy Got Fingered, Road Trip, Stealing Harvard and Charlie’s Angels. Having done everything from radio to rap, Green said he is returning to the basics with stand up. “It’s really the root of all that other stuff,” he said. “You’re just up there and there are no scripts or TelePrompTers.” Green said only regret is not going back into standup sooner. He has been writing material for the last couple of years now and said he has about two hours of stage time saved up, even though he prefers to do about an hour. He said his material is very fast paced and said Ottawans can expect a good laugh and a great time. Submitted photo To learn more about Green’s tour dates, vis- Ottawa’s own Tom Green will hit the Yuk Yuk’s stage on Elgin Street next week to deliver a standup routine. The return to it tomgreen.com or follow him on Twitter @ town comes after his work on TV and in numerous Hollywood films. tomgreenlive
