Hobbs defeats Leadman KRISTY WALLACE

A CENTURY OF STORIES New condominiums will soon be built on a heritage site that used to house a French convent. Ottawa This Week looks into the history of the former convent - where stories of the site date back to Confederation.

A crowd of Katherine Hobbs supporters crowded her campaign office on Wellington Street Monday night, cheering for their new councillor for Kitchissippi Ward. Hobbs won over incumbent Christine Leadman and challenger Daniel Stringer with roughly 44 per cent of the vote Monday night. She was at her campaign office eagerly waiting for her results. When she won, the party started at O’Connells’ Pub on Wellington with a team of supporters, family and friends celebrating her win. “I’m thrilled to win and serve the people of Kitchissippi,” said Hobbs. “When I went door to door, people wanted to share information with me and they had great ideas about improvements here.” Hobbs listed a number of issues as part of her campaign platform in hopes of benefiting Kitchissippi Ward. Intensification and growth in Kitchissippi Ward is one issue that Hobbs hopes to look further into – including adding green space, supporting the idea of “prezoning” for traditional streets like Wellington and Richmond, capping building heights to five stories and holding regular town halls for residents to voice their opinions on what’s happening in their community. She discussed the controversy surrounding the condominium development on a former convent heritage site at 114 Richmond Rd. “There might not be much we can do in the way of the convent,” said Hobbs. “But in the future, I want to make sure the people of Kitchissippi do not lose their vote when it comes to development.” Hobbs added that she is committed to enhancing youth and senior services while she serves out her term over the next four years and providing recreational facilities for both age groups.

opponent’s. “We entered late and we only had two months of knocking on doors while my opponent had 10 months,” Cullen said. “We left the mayor’s race too late, I am not entirely surprised. We gave too much away and he earned it.” Cullen’s advice for Taylor was to remember that he now represents a very diverse ward. “He is going to have to learn to be a champion for the seniors and the residents that live in poverty, even when it’s not popular around the council table to do so.” Taylor declared his candidacy in January and throughout the campaign has put his money where his mouth is. See ELECTIONS page 4

Mark Taylor bested incumbent Alex Cullen in Bay Ward because of 10 months of hard work, according to the ousted councillor. The newcomer handed Cullen a sound defeat, with a lead of 1,109 votes or eight per cent. “What an incredible 10 months and I’m expecting an incredible four years thanks to you and the voters in Bay Ward,” Taylor said to his supporters at Shoeless Joe’s on Carling Avenue when the results were released. Cullen credited his opponent’s victory to bad timing on his part and hard work on his

Teenagers living in Michele Heights might be too young to vote, but the youth led a fierce campaign this year urging their community to get out to the polls. “We wanted to try and raise voter awareness by connecting with the younger audience and with youth,” said Sharmaarke Abdullahi, Michele Heights Community House co-ordinator. “We presented it to our youth group and they loved the idea. And then it just snowballed from there.” The Michele Heights Youth Council is a group of young adults who are working hard in their community to also advocate for safe roads, giving female youth more time on the area’s basketball court and fundraising after the earthquake in Haiti. The youth council is housed in the Michele Heights Community House, which is affiliated with the Pinecrest-Queensway Community Health Centre. Earlier this summer, the area teens organized a mock election to help increase voter turnout

sues,” said Abdullahi. “Members of the community voted on what they wanted

“Our youth have done a great job in telling people there is a point to voting.”

In the last municipal elections, the Michele Heights voter turnout was only at 41 per cent. Abdullahi said many people feel like their vote might not matter. But with the youth spreading awareness, adults are starting to get excited about the elections. “People are going to the allcandidates meetings,” said Abdullahi. “Now people are understanding that it’s their responsibility and their right.” He added that he has learned a lot about what these youth are capable of accomplishing. “The kids’ true intentions were just to educate people about the process and for communities that might feel marginalized – let them feel included in the process,” said Abdullahi. “I’ve learned how influential non-voting citizens can be, especially at a young age.” The Michele Heights Youth Council started just this past spring.

River Ward Coun. Maria McRae will return for a third term in Ottawa council chambers.

McRae returns to River Ward APRIL LIM Special to Ottawa This Week

Maria McRae has represented Ward 16 since 2003 and now she will add another term as councillor of the diverse and sprawling River Ward following a comfy victory. McRae garnered 59.57 per cent of the vote – over 5,500 more ballots than runner-up Ian Boyd. Michael Kostiuk and Nadia Willard also finished well behind McRae, who celebrated her re-election at Wild Wings on McCarthy Road. Supporters that filled the restaurant chanted “four more years!” as McRae took the podium to deliver her third consecutive victory speech. McRae thanked residents for giving her a River Ward “hat trick,” and gave a special and tearful thank you to her parents and her husband. McRae said she wants to ensure the little details of the ward continue to be looked after, especially when it comes to traffic and safety. She added that

transit is an important concern not just in her ward but for the city as a whole. “Transit is an issue that feeds into traffic both from a volume perspective and a safety perspective,” McRae said. “We are going to work street by street, neighbourhood by neighbourhhood.” McRae is looking forward to working with newly elected mayor Jim Watson, who represented a section of River Ward as MPP, noting they worked on several city projects together in the Central Park and Caldwell communities. “We have a great history together,” McRae said. “We get along really well together and I’m looking forward to collaborating with him.” McRae also hopes that people will become more involved in the community during her next term. “I want to see some way to engage the community the way they’ve engaged me at the door,” McRae added. “I’m so inspired by the ideas I’ve heard.”

At a debate at Maki House in Crystal Beach on Oct. 13, Taylor committed to not taking the $6,000 car allowance given to councillors. “It’s a small amount, but something I want to put back in the hands of taxpayers,” he said. Taylor has also committed to having a ward office and monthly meetings with the various community associations. He has also limited himself to two terms. The former executive assistant to Jim Watson and current Alumni relations manager at Algonquin College is familiar with the political stage and will have less of a learning curve than some of the other candidates. The race built up to 11 candidates while Cullen was out seeking the top spot at the council table and petered out eight after he re-entered the ward race. George Guirguis came in third at just over 12 per cent of the popular vote. The local businessman held a large portion of his campaign out in the cyber world, with something like 115 campaign videos making their way onto YouTube.

Two-time candidate Terry Kilrea came in fourth with eight per cent of the vote. “Congrats to Mark Taylor,” Kilrea’s Twitter feed read. “A great campaign and lots of hard work. Good luck and party tonight! You deserve it.” Shawn Little, probably the candidate with the most experience, thanks to the nine years he worked as councillor for Kitchissippi, only managed to secure six per cent of the vote. Poet and activist Oni Joseph came just shy of four per cent of the vote, despite an impressive performance during the

ward’s many debates. Joseph did have the support of Greg Ross, the candidate Cullen endorsed while he was still running for mayor. Erik Olesen and Peter Heyck captured about one per cent of the vote between the two of them. Taylor will be sworn in on Dec. 1 and is ecstatic about his win and anxious to get to work. “My deepest thanks to our entire Bay Ward team for an amazing year,” he said. “I was honored to work with you all and look forward to continuing.”

Hobbs takes council seat in Kitchissippi From “Katherine” on page 1 “I’d like to look back in four years and see lots of recreation opportunities for children, recreation spaces and businesses in the area,” she said. When it comes to the light rail transit system, Hobbs wants it to serve the Richmond-Wellington corridor where it is most busy. In addition to her platform on transportation and transit, Hobbs wants to improve bike safety and travel as well as improve OC Transpo reliability. “It hasn’t been popular because it isn’t great to have a route going through your backyard,” she said. “But that’s one of the things I’m interested in – that transit goes forward and rolls along.” In addition to her platform on transportation and transit, Hobbs wants to improve bike safety and travel as well as improve OC Transpo reliability. She also thanked former

councillor Christine Leadman – who was in the incumbent in this ward – for everything she has done for the community. “Christine Leadman has been serving in Kitchissippi Ward for four years now, and before that as executive director of the BIA,” Hobbs said. “We have to thank her for everything she’s done.” If she was successful in this year’s election, Leadman wanted to implement the Development Permit System.

This legislation has been approved by the province but has not been implanted in Ontario yet. It provides additional tools – but also constraints – to help move intensification along while also having a positive influence on the community. Hobbs said ultimately, she has to the voters to thank for her success. “People have been fantastic to me,” she said. “Thank you to the people of Kitchissippi.”

Jim Watson celebrates victory on October 25, 2010

BLAIR EDWARDS Barrhaven Ottawa South This Week

The winds of change swept city hall on election night. Ottawa elected a new mayor on Monday, Oct. 25, as Jim Watson cruised to a lopsided victory collecting 131,258 votes, or nearly half of the vote, easily trouncing the incumbent, Larry O’Brien by 66,405 votes. “Tonight we are celebrating but the hard work starts tomorrow,” said Watson, who celebrated his win with hundreds of well wishers at the Ukrainian Banquet Hall on Byron Avenue. “Each and every one of you embodies the spirit of our capital. I’m truly honoured to accept this privilege to serve as your next mayor.” Watson isn’t the only new kid on the block on council, with voters electing nine new councillors and unseating an unprecedented six incumbents. O’Brien took only 64,853 votes, a result that marked the end of his four years sitting at the helm of city council. Clive Doucet finished third with 40,147 votes or 14.9 per cent of the vote, signalling the end of his 13-year career at city hall where he served as councillor of Capital Ward. Former Nepean mayor Andrew Haydon fell into the fourth spot taking 18,904 votes, nearly seven per cent of the vote, followed by Mike Maguire who attracted nearly 2.5 per cent of the vote. The remaining 15 mayoral candidates collected only three per cent of the vote, led by Robert Gauthier with 1,413 votes. The polls attracted a low turnout

with only 269,547 registered voters casting a ballot in the 2010 mayoral election, down from 300,039 votes cast in the 2006 election. PREDICTABLE MAYORAL OUTCOME The results of the mayoral race came out as expected with Watson winning a landslide victory over O’Brien. Watson led in the polls since he declared himself a candidate, holding a double-digit lead over his opponents a week before the election. This is Watson’s second kick at the can serving as mayor of Ottawa – he was elected mayor of pre-amalgamation Ottawa in 1997. In 2003 Watson was elected MPP for Ottawa West-Nepean and he served in Premier Dalton McGuinty’s cabinet as minister of consumer and business services, health promotion and later municipal affairs and housing. O’Brien trailed behind Watson for the entire election. O’Brien congratulated Watson during his concession speech at Broadway’s Bar and Grill in Nepean on election night. “I think people like Jim Watson,” he said. “Certainly (the win) was not about getting things done.” O’Brien said his four-year term as mayor had its ups and downs. Earlier this month, the incumbent apologized to voters for his first two years as mayor, calling them “a disaster”. Watson will be joined by a host of neophytes to city hall including Tim Tierney, who defeated Michel Bellemare by 181 votes in Beacon HillCyrville and Mark Taylor, a former aide to Watson, in Bay Ward.

The other new councillors are: • Scott Moffatt, who defeated Glenn Brooks in Rideau-Goulbourn. • Katherine Hobbs who beat Christine Leadman in Kitchissippi Ward. •Stephen Blais beat Rob Jelllet to take Cumberland Ward. • Matthieu Fleury defeated Georges Bedard in Rideau-Vanier by 88 votes. “He’s been blessed with a wonderful crew,” said O’Brien of Watson. “He has a council I would have been happy to lead.” Watson will need the support of council to bring about his plan to shrink the number of councillors and to limit tax increases to 2.5 per cent per year as well as introduce a borough system allowing communities to make local decisions. Doucet told supporters at his Wellington Street campaign headquarters that he had no regrets. “We didn’t lose,” he said. “We just didn’t win – there’s a big difference.” Doucet said he didn’t lose because he campaigned for “the right reasons:” a vision of a city linked from east to west by light rail and a prosperous city filled with strong neighbourhoods. Doucet said it is now time for him to step back from the public stage and reflect on the future of the world’s cities, and perhaps visit some of them. Doucet choked on his words as he closed his speech by saying: “But my home, my heart and my greatest hopes will always be for my city, the City of Ottawa.” With files from Laura Mueller and Lois Siegel

Municipal Election 2010


OTTAWA THIS WEEK - WEST - October 28, 2010


New mayor, fresh start

Congratulations Mr. Mayor. Voters have given you a four-year mandate to lead city council in governing the City of Ottawa. The position is nothing new for you; you were mayor of Ottawa before amalgamation. But a lot has changed since then. Amalgamation brought together a mish-mash of rural, suburban and urban communities; a variety of councils have struggled over the past decade to address the needs of this family of former municipalities. It’s a big city now, facing some large problems: suburban growth, pollution, higher-thaninflation annual tax increases to name just a few. Council has many issues on its agenda, including a multibillion dollar light rail project, cleaning up the Ottawa River and the city’s struggles to maintain its planning vision

in the face of objections from developers, who are often supported by the unelected Ontario Municipal Board. Voters were a bit frustrated with council’s performance over the past four years, which, we’re sure you’re aware helped you at the polls. Everyone who voted for you shared a common trait – hope. Hope that a Jim Watson-led council will turn the problems facing Ottawa into opportunities and solutions. Opportunities to build a world-class transit system, promote business and tourism and build a city where we can live, work and play. The people who voted you into office are counting on strong leadership from the mayor’s office. That doesn’t mean issuing edicts from the mount – as mayor, it will be your role to

set the legislative agenda and forge consensus on council. Ottawans don’t have an appetite for tax increases – residential taxes have gone up exponentially over the last four years despite the pledge of “zero means zero” from your predecessor. We’re happy to hear your vision for growth does not include urban sprawl and we’re hoping council will be able to work with developers and communities to form a consensus on infill development. We also hope you will move quickly to introduce your promised borough model of municipal government, giving more decision-making power over local issues to communities. You have a lot on your plate Mr. Mayor, but take a few days to enjoy your election win.You have the support of the greatest city in Canada behind you.



Ottawa car stars in new movie – or maybe not

pproaching the parking lot around midnight, I saw lights blazing and recognized it as a movie set. It wasn’t a movie set when I left my car there a few hours earlier and my first thought was not, “Oh, good, a movie!” It was, “Oh no, how am I going to get my car out of there?” Perhaps some of the sense of wonder has gone out of my life. After I determined cameras were not rolling, I trudged past a lot of people who didn’t seem to be doing anything over to where my car was. Except that my car wasn’t there. Around the spot where I thought I had left it was a grey car with a Pennsylvania licence plate. I stood there looking puzzled long enough for a movie person to offer assistance. “I’m looking for my car,” I said. “What does it look like?” he asked. I was starting to say that it was grey when I noticed that the grey car with the Pennsylvania licence plate had a familiar-looking dent behind the back door. “Um …,” I said. “It’s a sticker,” the movie guy said, reaching over and peeling the Pennsylvania plate off, revealing my Ontario plate. Too stunned to ask him anything else

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town – such as, what’s my car’s motivation? – I got in, backed out, helpfully directed by several movie people, and drove off. As I bounced along Sussex Drive, I pondered what profound conclusions could be drawn from this experience. The best I could come up with is that you think you know Ottawa but you don’t. I’ve lived here for 36 years and still can’t predict what will happen. I often arrive way too early for events because I figure that everyone in town will be there and I’ll have to drive around for hours to find a place to park. When I get there, I park right in front of the door and find 14 people inside, not counting me. Or it can work the other way. My first traumatic memory of the city is

of trying to drive my family across the Champlain Bridge to see the autumn leaves in the Gatineau. How could I have known that everybody in Ottawa drives across the bridge into Quebec to look at leaves? It’s not as if there are no leaves in Ontario. For a while, I was working on a theory that people in Ottawa will go to anything if it’s free. And there’s something in that. But there are some very expensive events, galas and whatnot that are sold out every year. So then I developed the theory, equally flawed, that people in Ottawa will go to anything if it costs them $500. In terms of outdoor behaviour, my working theory is that Ottawa people will go to anything if they can take a lawn chair to it. None of this explains why a parking lot on Clarence Street would turn itself into Pennsylvania. Unless, the movie is really about a Pennsylvania car, played by mine, that, through a series of wacky coincidences, winds up in a lot in Ottawa. Of course, Mr. Google helps here, and through him, I learned that the movie is called The House at the End of the Street. It involves murder in Pennsylvania and has been described online as “Psycho-

80 Colonnade Rd. N., Ottawa, Unit #4, ON K2E 7L2 T: 613-224-3330 • F: 613-224-2265 •

esque.” So you can see why Ottawa would be the logical place for it, although there are no reported plans for filming in the Senate. One thing I’ve learned in 36 years in Ottawa is that Psycho-esque behaviour is all around us. True, it is mostly confined to the letters-to-the-editor pages, but you can sense the undertone of violence as people rage on about whether pedestrians should walk on the left or the right side of the bicycle paths. As a famous film character might have said: “I have a feeling we’re not in Pennsylvania any more.”

Charles Gordon returns to humour writing in Ottawa This Week LAURA MUELLER

One thing you can’t accuse Charles Gordon of is being impartial. The longtime Ottawa humour columnist has taken jabs at everything from the Mike Harris government to Sunday shopping, and now his informed satirical wit can be found in the pages of Ottawa This Week. Being opinionated is all Gordon has ever known. Circumventing the usual career trajectory for a newspaperman, he went straight from being a political science student and pithy political commentator for Queen’s University publications to serving as the editorial page editor for Brandon, Manitoba’s Sun newspaper. It was 1974 when Gordon first hit the pages of the Ottawa Citizen, and the city has never been the same since.

Although he says he “never quite got the hang of the reporting thing,” readers know they can turn to Gordon for a reality check that’s rooted in well-researched facts – and be entertained at the same time. His goal, he says, is to keep readers laughing, but also to spin some kind of lesson out of his prose. “Without making them feel like they are being lectured at, of course,” Gordon says. “It’s my way of delivering a message.” Since his 2005 retirement from the Citizen, Gordon has imparted his expert style of wordsmithing to others – specifically, new journalists training to be part of a free and open media in Rwanda as part of the Rwanda Initiative. The project, which is run out of Carleton University’s School of Journalism, aims to address the shortage of journalism educators in Rwanda and help improve journalism standards in the country – no small task for an opinionated retiree from halfway around the world who had no teaching experience. Despite the language and cultural barriers, Gordon says he felt like exposing the African students to his world of opinion writing was something that left an impact on them. “It wasn’t a concept that was familiar to them,” he says. “The press there

OTTAWA THIS WEEK - WEST - October 28, 2010


Light the Night brightens hearts Ottawa’s first Light the Night event surpassed expectations, with over 2,000 participants gathered at city hall on Oct. 16 for the five kilometre walk. The event raised over $200,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada.

Melissa Clarke carries a tribute to her aunt, Terry, who was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma in 2008. Clarke said her aunt wanted to participate in the fundraiser, but had to return to hospital the day of the walk. Fourteen members strong, Terry’s Team raised over $2,200.


Participants at the first Light the Night walk in Ottawa observe a moment of silence for those who lost their battle against cancer.


Exciting changes to Ottawa’s media landscape The media landscape in Ottawa has made a dramatic and positive change with the debut of four new community newspapers, including Ottawa This Week West. Bucking the trend of downsizing at some area newspapers, Metroland Media – Ottawa Region is expanding. Four new community newspapers launched on Thursday, Oct. 28 and all will bear the name Ottawa This Week, but each one will have content targeted to the diverse neighbourhoods it serves. “We are very excited to be launching four new papers in some very vibrant areas of the city,” says Deb Bodine, editorin-chief of Metroland Media – Ottawa Region. “While the mainstream media is filled with tales of layoffs and downsizing in the newspaper industry, it’s a great feeling to be the one that’s beating the odds and hiring talented staff for both print and online products.” Over 35 full-time staff members have been hired, and over 2,000 carriers will be delivering 100,000 copies of the tabloid-sized weekly papers within their community each Thursday. With the addition of Ottawa This Week, Metroland Media – Ottawa Region now publishes 15 community papers that reach 320,000 households, including some of Canada’s oldest newspapers, the Perth Courier and The Renfrew Mercury. “We are very excited to be expanding across the city of Ottawa,” says Chris McWebb, VP and publisher of Metroland Media – Ottawa Region. “Ottawa is a vibrant collection of communities, which is a perfect match for our commitment

to providing readers with the most important news and information affecting their neighbourhood.” Ottawa This Week will provide hyper-local content to the communities it serves with hard-hitting news, profiles of residents, thought-provoking editorials, entertaining opinion columns and coverage of sports, upcoming events and arts and culture. Its accompanying website,, will offer residents daily news updates and multimedia content. “There is a definite opportunity to provide readers with more focused local content, while offering advertisers targeting and flexibility that was not previously available – a win/win combination for everyone,” continues McWebb. “We are also very proud to be the only newspapers in the region to be using 100 per cent recycled newsprint,” adds Bodine. “Despite the fact it is more expensive than the whiter paper used by others, we truly believe it is the right way to go.” Not only will Metroland Media – Ottawa Region bring more local stories to the homes of Ottawa West, the company is also committed to partnering with the community. Our focus is to be a part of our communities from the ground up, helping to brainstorm, build, and celebrate with both business and community groups. Many of our staff sit on boards, volunteer at events, and take pride in the communities we cover and live in. Metroland has been forming generous partnerships throughout the city. We were proud to sponsor the first-an-

Ashcroft Homes plans to turn the site of a convent into land for a condominium project.

Westboro convent site raises questions of use KRISTY WALLACE


The site of a former convent in Westboro is testing some neighbours’ faith in the city’s planning process. A section of the Planning Act never used before in Ottawa is now being tabled as an option to deal with the old convent site and the development surrounding it. The decision comes after months of consultation with community members, city officials and Ashcroft, the developer of the land. The convent site was designated heritage in April 2010, and Ashcroft brought forward its idea to build condominium sites around it. Lorne Cutler, president of the Hampton-Iona Community Group, said height and density were major issues surrounding the Ashcroft plans. ‘They came forward in March with plans that the community was quite upset about,” said Cutler. “A few days later, they submitted it to council for their review and comments.” In May 2010, he said the city appointed an independent design review panel which reviewed Ashcroft’s proposal based on its design, heritage and the architecture. The density and height of the condominiums were brought down from 700 units in March to just under 600. On Sept. 28, Coun. Diane Holmes introduced an option of using section 37 of the Planning Act, which has never been used in Ottawa. The section says if the developer gives something back to the community – such as heritage designation or something for public use – higher density can be given

in exchange Currently, all plans have been put on hold until a Nov. 16 meeting of the city’s planning and environment committee, where a compromise under section 37 may be considered. Cutler says he was told there would be a public meeting about decisions being made, but hasn’t heard a date for that. Michael Fitzpatrick, chief of public affairs with the City of Ottawa, said talks are currently in the works. “We’re looking for alternative uses and will come back with some options,” he said. Meanwhile, Fitzpatrick said Ashcroft has filed a motion with the Ontario Municipal Board. Under the Planning Act, a developer has a right to have their application heard within 120 days. Ashcroft hasn’t heard back from the city within that time frame. Ottawa’s heritage advisory committee recently heard about zoning from architect Roderick Lahey and planning and urban designer Ted Fobert, who are representing Ashcroft. The pair presented their plan to allow the committee to give their comments on the zoning application. Lahey, who presented at the meeting, said the maple trees on the site would be saved and they would make it “pedestrian-friendly,” using walkways, widening the sidewalk and creating a storefront as part of the condominiums. The main problem the committee had with the plans was the height of the development. Committee members will draw up a memo that includes their concerns and comments.

Rich history surrounds former Westboro convent KRISTY WALLACE

Historical reminders still linger on the ceilings of the former Soeurs de la Visitation Monastery d’Ottawa. In large, artistic lettering, religious mottos in French are still painted on the ground floors’ ceilings. These mottos that reference saints also run along the hallways and the dining room. These paintings will be gone soon, since heritage designation only protects the 100 to140 year-old stonework, woodwork, bell tower and windows, among other parts of the former convent. For 10 years, Ottawa west resident David Jeanes has been a member of Heritage Ottawa and has spent time researching the history of the former convent that might soon be home to condominiums. “I’ve gone by the convent many times on the bus or by car,” said Jeanes. “I’ve always noticed the roofs behind the wall and wondered what was behind.” Jeanes pursued his interest in the old building and dug a little deeper into stories and information that lay behind the tall, grey concrete walls – and the nuns who lived quietly in isolation behind them. SKEADS MILLS It wasn’t always nuns who lived on the Richmond Road property. A gothic-style house attached to the former monastery was built by Sidney Frapp during Canada’s Confederation era. When Westboro was founded in the 19th century, it was called Skead’s Mills – named after a senator and lumber man, James Skead. Skead was one of four prominent owners who lived in the house before it was sold to the 400 year-old Soeurs de la Visitation order. The house’s gothic style was very unique to the Confederation era, and Jeanes said there were 12 built in the area and six are currently left. “These houses became the standard house for an upper-class person of that era,” said Jeanes. “Some of the people who lived in this house were significant and prominent in business, public affairs and politics.” The owner of the house around 1909 offered it to the Royal Ottawa hospital – which declined because the

$25,000 asking price was far too much. SOEURS DE LA VISITATION When a group of eight nuns from the Soeurs de la Visitation order left France and immigrated to Canada in 1910, they had financial help from a convent in Maryland to buy the house and use it for their convent. They recruited three more nuns in Canada. “This was an order of nuns who were cloistered and contemplative,” said Jeanes. “They didn’t run hospitals, they didn’t teach, they didn’t go out and help the poor. They stayed in their convent and looked to the power of prayer. They would pray for people, but they wouldn’t actively get involved face-to-face with the public.” The 11 nuns shared the house’s eight bedrooms while the rest of the convent was built attached to the house in 1913. With help from Ottawa’s Catholic community, this new convent would give them bigger rooms and the facilities they needed to support themselves – which included a hospital, pharmacy and even their own palliative care facility where the older nuns would go to die. The main focus of the U-shaped convent centred around a courtyard, which included a statue of the Virgin Mary and flowerbeds. “One of the things about their life was they wanted a very peaceful and contemplative existence. To walk around and look at nice things was part of having the right attitude towards their prayer,” said Jeanes. “These were not the kind of nuns who gave themselves a very hard life, sleeping on bare boards. They actually attracted daughters of wealthy families and they provided a fairly comfortable existence.” Once a woman would become a nun within the order, their life became completely enclosed behind the large concrete walls of the monastery. The only exception to this rule was a half-hour long visit from close relatives once a month. Even then, the nuns would talk to their family behind a screen which was a hole in the wall They also didn’t talk much to each other. The tall walls that are erected around the former convent allowed the nuns to have recreation time for half an hour a day where they could walk the pathways and even ride a bicycle.

“But they stayed within the original rules of the order very strictly so they wore the long black garments and the head covering under the hood,” Jeanes said. “These nuns stuck very close to original rule.” The nuns also provided a service for the community. If someone was in crisis, they would go see the nuns and ask them to pray. “It was kind of like a prayer-on-demand,” Jeanes laughed. During hardships like the First and Second World Wars, Jeanes said it’s possible that people would ask the nuns to pray if their loved ones were going off to war. He added that the nuns even had a little shop inside the monastery where the public could go and buy purses, crafts and other items they made. MARIAN CONGRESS The convent was significant for the Catholic community in 1947, when Ottawa hosted a Roman Catholic conference called the Marian Congress. Hundreds of thousands of Roman Catholics came to Ottawa and paraded a statue of the Virgin Mary. They brought the statue to the Soeurs de la Visitation Monastery d’Ottawa. “The only place this statue came was at this convent in the west end,” said Jeanes. “It was a focal point of Catholics in Nepean.” The convent was at its peak around 1959 when it housed 35 nuns. They even had a mini hotel of one or two bedrooms attached to the convent where a visiting priest might go to stay, or someone who was in a major life crisis and had nowhere else to turn. The room was isolated and the person staying there would have no contact with the nuns – windows in the rooms couldn’t even look out into the nuns’ private gardens. The number of nuns in the convent slowly dwindled down to 16 by the late 1960s. Towards the end of their time there, it was down to only eight. “As they were getting into their 60s and 80s, providing medical care for each other wasn’t working,” said Jeanes. They moved to another convent in Pembroke this year that isn’t part of their order, said Jeanes, but they will try and maintain isolation in one wing of their new location.

After 57,000 kms, Liberals hope their leader has turned a corner CHRIS KLUS Special to Ottawa This Week

Photo by Chris Klus

‘Education, health care and rebuilding Canada’s reputation in the world.’ Federal Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff has refined his priorities after a summer-long bus tour across Canada.

Michael Ignatieff ’s round trip across Canada came to an end at Sala San Marco on Preston Street last week. More than 300 Liberal supporters turned out for the cross-country tour’s final question-and-answer session with the party’s leader; an evening dubbed Open Mike. Ignatieff ’s 57,000-kilometere motorcoach journey to more than 180 communities may have helped him connect with voters. The summer-long trip provided Ignatieff with a chance to bring the party’s priorities into line with Canadians. The Liberal faithful hope his new to-do list will make him the country’s next prime minister. “Education, health care and rebuilding Canada’s reputation in the world,” Ignatieff responded when asked the country’s needs. The questions from the audience at Sala San Marco covered a wide

range of issues but returned many times to health care. When asked about elder care, Ignatieff said it’s a critical issue as Baby Boomers retire and require more assistance. He said a Liberal government would propose an elder care leave program to give workers up to six months paid leave to look after their parents at home. On the issue of a national pharmacare program, Ignatieff said he would negotiate a national standard across the provinces so that there is “equality for being a Canadian citizen.”

We can get the deficit under control because we did it before. • Michael Ignatieff A question about Canada’s failed attempt to win a seat on the United Nations Security Council brought out a more passionate Ignatieff. “We used to have a great reputation in the international community but Harper has thrown all that away,” he said. He talked about how the Liberals

under prime minister Lester Pearson were once at the forefront of the international community and instrumental in establishing the United Nations. “You need to trust the advice of professional public servants in the Department of Foreign Affairs,” said Ignatieff, the son of a former Canadian ambassador to Yugoslavia. “We now have to earn our way back in (to the Security Council).” He said that will require greater co-operation with the UN and the development of better international relations. On the current economic situation in Canada, Ignatieff said his emphasis would be on training and education, not more stimulus packages. “We can get the deficit under control because we did it before,” he said, pointing to Liberal MP Ralph Goodale in the audience. Goodale was finance minister from 2003 to 2006. The Open Mike evening in Ottawa’s Little Italy included other members of the local Liberal team, including Ottawa-Vanier MP Mauril Belanger and Ottawa Centre candidate Scott Bradley and retired lieutenant-general Karen McCrimmon, who is the party’s nominee in Carleton-Mississippi Mills.

Queensway Carleton begins final phase of expansion The Queensway Carleton Hospital is growing again. Just weeks from its 36th anniversary, the hospital has officially announced the final phase of its expansion. “In four short years we will be looking out that window and seeing a whole new building,” said Andrew Falconer, QCH chief of staff. “In the past 36 years we have really grown from a community hospital to one that serves the whole region.” The centrepiece of the hospital’s plan includes a new fourstorey building that will add 13,000 square metres to the existing structure. Another 6,500 square metres will be renovated. In the future, another two floors – including one that could accommodate an extra 34 beds – could be added to the new building. “Ottawa’s west end is one of the fastest growing communities in the country,” OttawaWest Nepean MPP Bob Chiarelli said.

The expansion will mean a 40 per cent increase in the number of operating rooms, bringing the number from seven to 10. It will also add 15 kidney dialysis stations, and a second MRI and CT scanner. Ambulatory care, diagnostic imaging, administration, laboratory and pharmacy services will also see upgrades. The $126-million project is expected to be completed by early 2014. In addition to the new 18,580 square metres of space in the first two phases of the expansion, a number of the Queensway Carleton programs have now partner with other hospitals in the region to expand and increase access. Seemingly always under construction, the hospital has already opened the doors to the new $96-million Irving Greenberg Cancer Centre earlier this year. “I know when we did the first part of the expansion staff were just delighted,” June Lemmex, past chair of the QCH Foundation said. “They told me, ‘Now we are able to provide the kind of care we want to.’”

Nicolas Ruszkowski VP, Communications Ottawa Hospital In 1992, I moved in with my Polish grandparents; Babcia (grandma) and Dziadzio (grandpa). Before long, I noticed my grandmother’s calling as a person who communicated, rather frequently, with Ottawa’s hospital establishment. One day, I found a file folder that belonged to Babcia. It was literally bursting at the seams, filled with two dozen letters to hospital CEOs around the city. “Wait times are too long,” she wrote. Why are emergency departments so busy? Why don’t I have easier access to my patient records? Can you do more to manage the pain I’ve had since my hip replacement? Are those child-like people in white lab coats really doctors? Now, in my role as Vice-President, Communications and Outreach at The Ottawa Hospital, I often think of Babcia. Wait times, high occupancy, patient records,

pain management, quality and safety of care; the issues she worried about then are still completely relevant today. How would she feel about that? She would hate that we still deal with the same problems, but she’d appreciate our progress. She would love writing to one hospital CEO, instead of three, since the merger of the General, Civic and Riverside hospitals into The Ottawa Hospital. She would be impressed to know The Ottawa Hospital serves 1.2 million Eastern Ontarians, and sees more patients in a year than any other academic health science centre in Canada. She would remind me that hospitals, imperfect or not, were always there for her and Dziadzio. Fractures were painful, but surgeries allowed my grandparents to walk well into their nineties. She would want to know what hospitals do, in spite of their challenges, to ensure they still provide the comfort, care and hope our communities need to keep thriving. This column is for Babcia, and anyone else who cares about their healthcare. Nicolas Ruszkowski is VP, Communications and Outreach at The Ottawa Hospital. Each week, he will share behind-the-scenes insight from the hospital. E-mail him at

Hintonburg group takes action after prostitution ruling KRISTY WALLACE

Pat O’Brien wants sex workers to be protected, but he also relates prostitution to drugs, crack houses and pimps – and he wants to make sure his community is protected. That’s why O’Brien, president of the Hintonburg Community Association, recently held a meeting with police and other community members to see how they’re interpreting the recent prostitution ruling. He’s also hoping that community groups will get involved in the final decision. “We’re saying to the government – at the municipal, federal and provincial level – that when it comes time to come up with a solution, talk to the communities,” he said. Ontario Superior Court Judge Susan Himel recently struck down three provisions: communicating for the purpose of prostitution, pimping and operating a common bawdy house. It’s still against the law for sex workers to stop or attempt to stop motor vehicles, and to impede the flow of pedestrians or vehicle traffic. GRACE PERIOD

While she acknowledges that there are sex workers who are drug users, they don’t always accompany one another. “This idea that with one comes the other, that’s a questionable assertion,” Bruckert said. “The empirical evidence does not support that.” She adds that if communities are concerned with sex workers who are also drug users, there are already laws in place for

“You have to appreciate that sex workers are a part of the community.” Chris Bruckert, University of Ottawa criminology professor drugs and crack houses. “The police have a very large toolbox and there are adequate laws in place to deal with nuisance,” she said. “In my opinion, we have to realize that there are too many laws to regulate sex workers.” O’Brien said he’s heard from residents in Vanier’s community association who have complained about feeling insecure in their own neighbourhood because of drug use and prostitution. He said it’s important for the

community to feel safe, while making sure sex workers are safe as well. There have to be solutions to drug problems and crime in a community where prostitution is being practiced, O’Brien said. “The solutions are best made in consultation with the communities affected,” he said. In the case of Hintonburg, O’Brien said nobody defended the recent decision at his meeting with the police and community. However Bruckert said communities need to be careful in making generalizations about Canadian society as a whole, and how Canadians view prostitution. She said an Angus Reid poll came out before Himel’s decision that indicated 50 per cent of Canadians want prostitution decriminalized. “Sex workers live in places like Hintonburg and Vanier,” Bruckert said. “You have to appreciate that sex workers are a part of the community. You have to acknowledge the multiplicity of the community and exercise caution.” She added that she’s surprised that a community association would be concerned with the recent prostitution decision. “Even if her judgment took effect, they would be able to work in small establishments and apartments,” she said. “It seems to me a community interested in the safety of sex work, and interested in the neighbourhood, would really embrace

these laws.” O’Brien said that the recent discussion has people talking about the issue, which is a good start. “Whether you agree with the ruling or not, society tackled this as opposed to swept this under the rug or did the hush-

hush,” he said. “Let’s see what we can do as community to ensure that those in the community practicing the profession are safe, and ensure the communities are safe.”


Himel originally delayed her order from taking affect for 30 days at the end of September, but a “grace period” is now in place for it to be extended for an additional 30 days. O’Brien said Hintonburg used to be an area with high prostitution and drug use in the 1990s and early 2000s. He said the community worked together to implement programs, get citizens involved and create community patrols. “The issue we’ve primarily had with prostitution was not prostitution itself, but everything that comes with it,” said O’Brien. “We have a completely different community today.” Because of this community work in trying to abolish prostitution in Hintonburg, O’Brien said it’s important that communities be involved in the ultimate decision regarding sex workers. “It’s the citizens with practical experience who have worked in this area for years and years who should be consulted,” he said. “We want to be part of the decision-making, which we think would be better than just having something imposed.” Chris Bruckert, a University of Ottawa criminology professor and former sex worker, said she understands that communities are concerned. But, she said the relation between sex workers and drugs isn’t so clear cut.

October 28, 2010

A PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM THE PREMIER On behalf of the Government of Ontario, I am delighted to extend warm greetings to the readers of Ottawa This Week as this fine publication launches its inaugural issue. A community newspaper is a dynamic forum for the exchange of opinions and ideas, and a vibrant reflection of the public it serves.

Please accept my best wishes for success now — and in the weeks and years to come.

Dalton McGuinty Premier

Mayor Larry O’Brien City of Ottawa

FROM MP, NEPEAN-CARLETON Dear Metroland Media, I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate your business on its outstanding achievement and contribution to the community. Metroland Media has consistently provided a strong commitment to the NepeanCarleton region, especially through the weekly publication of important regional newspapers such as Nepean This Week and Barrhaven/Ottawa South This Week. I was delighted to hear the recent news of Metroland

Media’s expanding its coverage area. This expansion will see a total of 100, 000 papers issued through the circulation of the company’s local weeklies. Metroland’s expanded services will provide the citizens of this community with a more accessible source of local news as well as a means of connecting the people of Ottawa to important events in their region. Metroland Media’s expanded service provide a glowing example that hard work and successful business practices have contributed to the economic growth now pulling Canada through these tough economic times. As part of this expansion, 35 full-time jobs have been created in the region. Furthermore, the distribution of the company’s papers employs 2, 000 part-time workers. These jobs provide a means of economic support and provide meaningful work to many people in the region. I look forward to seeing this expansion in action, and the

benefits your company’s hard work will bring to our community. Congratulations again, Sincerely, Pierre Poilievre, MP Nepean-Carleton Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister and to the Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs FROM MP, OTTAWA SOUTH Dear Friends and Neighbours: As Member of Parliament for Ottawa South I am pleased to extend my sincere congratulations to Metroland Media on the launch of four new community newspapers. Community newspapers are an invaluable resource

to the residents of Ottawa as they provide a window to our community through words and photos. Because of the dedication and hard work of the staff, residents are kept up to date on the issues that matter in our neighbourhoods. I look forward to working with Metroland Media. I would like to remind residents of Ottawa South to contact my office if I may be of assistance. Sincerely, David McGuinty, M.P Ottawa South Official Opposition House Leader FROM MPP, OTTAWA CENTRE Dear Ottawa This Week, It is an honour to congratulate you on the launch of Ottawa This Week, a distinctly local community newspaper to serve the needs of our unique neighbourhoods. Metroland Media has a solid reputation of providing reliable and informative news throughout the Ottawa region. The addition of Ottawa This Week will continue the tradition of providing a window to the community through words and photos: hard-hitting news stories, interesting profiles of local residents, thought-provoking editorials and entertaining opinion columns. Ottawa is a diverse quilt of unique neighbourhoods. From Westboro to the Glebe, Britannia Beach to Orleans, each community has a character all of its own. These communities need a voice to tell their stories and share the news that matters most to them. Strong, independent media is the cornerstone of our society. In this digital age where social media and the 24 hour news cycle dominate our attention, sometimes our local stories get lost in the vast volume of information that is at our fingertips. It is in this context that community newspapers have become more important than ever – serving as a tool to keep us connected to our neighbours and to preserve our unique neighbourhoods. Ottawa This Week will play an important role in making sure that the communities throughout our city have a local voice all of their own. I am pleased to welcome Ottawa This Week to our community, and I look forward to reading your paper for years to come! Best of luck! Yasir Naqvi MPP Ottawa Centre

PC leader vows end to local health networks Hudak wants to fast-track foreign accreditations DESMOND DEVOY

a visit to the town of Perth, just west of Ottawa. He added that, if he is elected premier next year, he will seek to accelerate the accreditation of new Canadians with foreign credentials, and would open up more spaces to educate more doctors.

Ontario Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak has vowed to eliminate the province’s Local Health Integration Networks (LHIN) if he wins next year’s election. Hudak was in eastern Ontario on Friday, Oct. 22, to meet with seniors groups at the Montgomery Royal Canadian Legion Branch on Kent Street in Centretown, offering up talking points that are likely to be included in next year’s stump speech. Many communities in eastern Ontario are facing a doctor shortage, prompting smalltown mayors and councillors to call for help in attracting new physicians. Hudak says he has answers. “We should reward doctors who serve in underserviced or rural areas,” said Hudak during

HEALTH NETWORKS Premier Dalton McGuinty’s Liberal government created Local Health Integration Networks to delegate health care decisions to regional bodies, rather than concentrating policy within the province’s health ministry. The LHIN concept came under fire from Hudak, who called them “an expensive layer of middle management…They do nothing for front-line staff.” Hudak estimated the provincial government spends about $250 million on LHINs and that his government would close them down and redirect the money to where it is needed. Numerous hospitals in eastern Ontario are in competition to attract new doctors to their communities. “They’re beautiful facilities


with a rewarding lifestyle,” Hudak said of the various towns seeking MDs. “If we expand the pool of doctors…we’ll have more doctors in rural Ontario.” Hudak also said he wants to replicate what the British Columbia government has done, appointing a cabinet minister to follow through on cutting red tape in the government. “I’d like you to spend more time with your family, more time with your small business, rather than time with your paperwork satisfying the premier,” said Hudak. Lanark, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington MPP Randy Hillier spoke during the Perth stop, telling his supporters that he was ready for next year’s battle. “Next October will be a watershed moment for this province,” Hillier said, alluding to the next election. “Ontario needs change. It’s time for government to leave us alone. We don’t need a government that will prescribe our every move.” Hudak said he wants to pick up seats in suburban Toronto, Ottawa and northern Ontario in next year’s vote.

Safe community initiative gets funding boost






Ottawa’s west end communities are going to be a lot safer thanks to a $154,000-windfall from the provincial government on Oct. 14. The funding was given to the Pinecrest Queensway Community Health Centre’s United Neighbours Program, along with a three-year commitment for funding.

ally drive the bus.” Chiarelli said that although we see flare-ups in the media about crime in parts of the city, Ottawa is still a city worth living in due to community organizations like United Neighbours. The west-end initiative encourages residents to take ownership and responsibility for issues in their community.

Wanda MacDonald, executive director of PQCHC, said this is done by getting people to talk in meetings and coffee shops. “By doing that, we’re getting people engaged in those discussions and looking at ways that they can become involved in contributing to the goals of the overall project,” she said.

UNITED NEIGHBOURS “The United Neighbours initiative recognizes and develops that strength by bringing together residents of all ages and backgrounds,” Bob Chiarelli, provincial minister of infrastructure and MPP for Ottawa West-Nepean, said. The goal of United Neighbours is to enhance sustainable broad-based community development and to give residents the tools to make their neighbourhoods a better place to live.

“Sure there is room for improvement, but to talk about doing away with them isn’t the answer,” he said. “When things were all done through the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care everything was very Toronto centric and the communities were underserved.” Cushman said community needs are best determined at the local level. “Maybe we will move to regional health authorities, but

Five years ago, Dr. Robert Cushman started his work at the Champlain Local Health Integration network with a weekly paycheque and a Blackberry, now he heads up a region that covers the area from Deep River to Hawkesbury. His response is to Auditor General Jim Carter’s recent criticisms concerning waste and over-use of consultants.

I don’t think the answer is to move backwards,” Cushman said. On the horizon, the folks at the Champlain LHIN will be working with the community care access centres (CCACs) to developing aging at home practices — something that would greatly benefit hospitals like the Queensway Carleton Hospital — which had to cancel scores of elective surgeries last winter due to full beds. In an earlier interview with Metroland Media,

chief of staff Dr. Andrew Falconer said one of the reasons for the bed shortages were the number of elderly patients waiting for alternate levels of care. Since then, the hospital, the CCAC and the LHIN have been working with local retirement residencies and nursing homes to place patients in interim care beds until they are ready to go home. The Total Joint Assessment Clinic, a centralized triage centre at the QCH, is another program that was developed in

partnership with the LHIN. The program, slashed wait times for knee and hip replacement surgeries by giving patients the options to choose their hospital and surgeon. Cushman said these developments were possible because LHIN staff works on the ground with the hospital and health care practitioners. “Is there room for improvement?” Cushman said. “Yes. But I think we are headed in the right direction.”

In a press released sent out on the same day, a spokesperson for the company said they expect the sale to close at the end of the year. The company filed for bankruptcy protection in January

Nortel Networks has sold its sprawling Carling Avenue campus to the federal government, for the tidy sum of $208 million. The campus was on 370 acres of land and is comprised of 11 buildings – totalling over 185,807 square metres. The sale agreement provides for Nortel to continue to occupy parts of the campus for vary-

2009 and has been auctioning off parts of its business in an effort to pay back debt holders. After Nortel vacates the building, all leases will be assumed by Public Works and Government Services Canada. The lease with Ciena will be shortened from 10 years to five and will result in a $33.5 million repayment – to come from the sale proceeds. Minto’s executive vice-president Greg Rogers said the sale

was a good deal for the federal government. “We had participated in the bidding process, with a mind to obtaining the property and leasing it back to the federal government,” he said. Minto’s involvement in the bidding battle went three rounds. Rogers speculated that the feds wanted to buy the property rather than lease because of the unique security needs of the De-

Rope in

partment of National Defense, which is likely to be the newest tenant. “I wish we had won but the federal government is getting buildings and land at a phenomenal price,” he said. Other commercial property owners could benefit from the sale as the other technology companies. Those who could benefit include Ciena, Avaya, Ericsson and Genband will now be looking for new homes.

Welcome home – to a concert in Westboro KRISTY WALLACE


Nicole Colbeck has always loved music – and house concerts. As co-founder of a music company called Nutshell Music, the Westboro resident spent lots of time co-ordinating large events and was heavily involved in Bluesfest and Ottawa’s Folk Festival in addition to other popular concerts in the city. She’s also hosted house concerts for the last 12 years – eight of those years at her Stittsville home and four years now at her current Westboro house, where she serves up Westboro House Concerts. The name is just how it sounds. Every six weeks or so, Colbeck will invite an artist – usually folk – to come play at her house and allow an audience to enjoy the concert. Moving around the furniture in her living room and dining room, she transforms her Westboro home into an intimate folk venue. “It’s very much about having a heart for supporting artists. That’s always been a passion for

me,” said Colbeck. “Also just being able to see that your space can do it – there’s an excitement to that.” There are about 12 other house concerts in the Ottawa area; one as close by as Hintonburg. Colbeck said the idea is particularly popular out in the Prairies and might have evolved from kitchen parties. “If anything, I think it may have come out of the fact that people wanted to support artists,” she said. “Rather than clicking through the channels, an artist would rather spend the night playing – even if it’s to a very small group.” Her concerts have a cap of about 35 people, which can sometimes get a bit snug. When Colbeck first started hosting house concerts, she said it was mostly friends and family who attended the shows. Over the years, her audience has shifted from loved ones to the artist’s fans – and general music lovers. “People have come back just because they’ve had a good time,” said Colbeck. She said all house concerts have different rules and pro-

Each is a social occasion: ‘There’s time where you’re meeting people in your community who are like-minded,’ she says. tocol, but the idea of bringing some strangers into her home has never bothered her. She said in her case, she never gives out her address publically and she often corresponds with audience members by email or phone before they come into her home.

“There’s a big element of trust. You have to be able to trust people,” she said. She adds that she’s never had a problem – or even a noise complaint – in her years of offering the concerts. The only problem she had was that a person who left without

paying, which only happened one time. She adds that no two house concert hosts are the same, and each have different rules or might offer something different. In addition to having an intimate setting with an artist, Colbeck said another bonus to going to a house concert is the social aspect for the audience. “The break here is often 30 or 40 minutes, and it’s usually on a Saturday night,” she said. “There’s time where you’re meeting people in your community who are like-minded because they’ve come to a house concert as well. It’s a gathering. It’s a rich evening.” She said just about any size house could host a concert, and she would love to be able to also coach people on hosting them too. “You can never have too many people doing this,” she said. “It’s a fun evening even as a host. Even if you don’t want to host, come and walk in and really soak it in. It’s fun.” To track down Colbeck, search for “Westboro house concerts” on Facebook.

This year, the celebration is happening once again at St. Paul High School on Draper Avenue on Oct. 30 from 4 to 8 p.m. “There are lots of celebrations happening all over India with different stories,” said Biju George, head of the India Canada Association. The association hosts many events throughout the year including the annual Diwali Mela. George said it will be the same favourites this year – including Indian cuisine, jewelry and many other items on sale. “There will also be a cultural program,” said George. “A different group will be performing this year, and they’ll be local talent.” Those who attend this year’s event can also look forward to popular film songs, folk-pop music and dances from different regions. “You will have a chance to enjoy the Gol Guppa, Chatt Papri, Kachori and many more goodies,” said George. He said the association expects between 500 and 1,000 people to come out and celebrate. “Getting all these people together is not an easy thing,” said George. “But all people join in this celebration.” For more information visit the India Canada Association website at:

The men behind the statues

Artists explain the work, and their vision, behind the Wellington marbles KRISTY WALLACE

For two years, the day usually started in a warehouse near Almonte. Dust filled the air as blistering cold weather seeped through the walls. Using chisels, hammers and 10-pound saws, Ryan Lotecki and Marcus KuceyJones carefully crafted the marble fire hydrant statues currently scattered along Westboro’s Wellington Street. “We live in a society where things come out of a box,” said Kucey-Jones. “But this didn’t.” The pair were successfully awarded an opportunity to create public art along the street after showing their sketches and work to judges. It came as part of the city’s efforts to revitalize Wellington – with one per cent of that budget funding public art. Kucey-Jones and Lotecki travelled to Europe where they got a tour of Italy’s marble quarries. “It was our choice of material,” said Kucey-Jones. “There was no suitable stone in our area and to do it in marble, it was necessary to get it from Italy.” The statues lining the street are made completely from marble since it is the most predictable type of stone that is the easiest to work with, Lotecki said. The fire hydrant theme is incorporated at the base of each statue – and there is a reason for this. The pair said they needed a symbol that carried through each piece to allow for continuity.

They also needed a lot of patience to work on each statue – which took two months each to complete. The most challenging part of creating the statues were the top parts that reflect the community. Lotecki said the ones that were most difficult were the statues depicting vegetables. “It was all imagination,” he said. “You have to start right away, imagining where it’s going to be and hope it’s not going too far.” They added that as artists, there are many things they have to keep in mind when creating public art. “You have to open your mind, but also remember that it’s in people’s face,” said Lotecki. “And you have to make sure it’s not hurting them in any way and that they’re not offended by it. You’re trying to give a gift on behalf of the city.” While the statues aren’t particularly offensive, Kucey-Jones said he’s heard people say that the $255,000 budget they had to work Photos by Kristy Wallace with was too much, and should Marcus Kucey-Jones and Ryan Lotecki are the artists behind the Wellington Street marble statues. The pair have gone to something else - like divided the work to create the 18 statues scattered along the stretch. keeping the streets clean. A fire hydrant, of all things, is a symbol that’s inclusive of all communities. “The fire hydrant is an object that decorates communities everywhere, and they’re an integral part of community,” said Lotecki. “It connects everybody.” After scouting the businesses and buildings along Wellington, Lotecki and Kucey-Jones got their inspiration for the tops of the fire hydrants. The 18 statues scattered along Wellington each

have a different top that reflects a nearby organization – like a piano that’s perched on top of the statue in front of a music store. Once they had their ideas in place, they got to the chiseling, cutting and shaping. “The hydrant part of it required mathematical equation to carve it out,” said Kucey-Jones. “But the majority of other parts of the sculpture was really just using your eye and direct carving. Each one presented different challenges.”

The team wanted a symbol common to all pieces. They settled on the ubiquitous fire hydrant, found in every community.

SMALL FOOTPRINT Kucey-Jones has also heard others say that they created a carbon footprint by bringing the marble over from Italy. However, he said the jury who chose their work said they had the design with the lowest carbon footprint. And, the budget included everything from tools, to bringing the marble over, to rental space over the two-year project. Kucey-Jones has also heard is that their work reminds some people of male and female body parts. “I’ve heard things that are just ridiculous,” said Kucey-Jones. “But on the whole, the response has been really good.” Lotecki added that as an artist – especially one who creates public art – they expected the criticism. “There were days that I didn’t like it,” he said. “But maybe people who aren’t sold on it right away will realize it’s a part of their environment. Like their favourite tree, or shop window.” Whether people are saying good things or bad, the pair is happy that their hard work has generated talk along Wellington Street – and Westboro as a whole. “Public art has an important role,” said Kucey-Jones. “It gives our city a voice. And anything that makes people stop and think is good thing.”

Jersey Shore, Mad Hatters top Ottawa Halloween trends When you hear knocking on your door this Halloween, don’t be surprised if the trick-or-treater is teen pop icon Justin Bieber. Or even the eccentric Lady Gaga. Halloween is here, and stores across Ottawa West are selling out of many interesting and unique costumes this year. “The Alice in Wonderland is the most popular this year,” said Samantha Sudds, costume co-ordinator with Value Village on Clyde Avenue. “The Alice costume we’re sold out of. A lot of the Mad Hatter costumes are selling too.” The Alice character has been the most popular women’s costume this year, with Lady Gaga wigs also selling out. Brian MacInnis, store manager, added that warrior costumes this year are selling out for men – reflecting a new television series Spartacus: Blood and Sand. “Transformers costumes are also popular too,” he said. “And with a lot of classic comics coming back, we’ve been selling a lot of Wolverine costumes.” MacInnis added that the classic witch, pirate and hippie costumes are still popular – but a unique cast of a reality television show has also made for interesting costumes. “Jersey Shore costumes are also very popular,” said MacInnis. “I’m very serious.”

Monster Blowout Franchise Representative and District Manager Carol Connolly agrees that the Alice in Wonderland and Mad Hatter costumes at her stores have been selling out, as well as Super Mario and Luigi costumes. “We have Jersey Shore. We just got them so I imagine we won’t have them tomorrow,” she laughed. “We’ve been selling everything like mad.” Ron Lahaie, Halloween co-ordinator at Value Village in Ottawa South, said his store usually gets university and college students who have unique costume ideas. He said with the popularity of vampire movies, there have been a lot of sold-out vampire costumes. But this year, he said he noticed people want something different. He remembers one customer’s request that still makes him laugh. “The other day, someone was looking for a Justin Bieber wig. It didn’t say Justin Bieber on it, but it looked like his hair,” said Lahaie. “We had an actual toupee that looked like a Justin Bieber haircut.” MacInnis said his store usually holds a post-mortem after the Halloween shopping is over to discuss what they can improve on and how the season went. As early as June, staff get together to discuss what costumes they’ll be ordering. “It’s our Christmas,” he said.

Employees from Value Village on Clyde Avenue model some costume ideas during a Halloween costume fashion show. MacInnes added that they often look at what movies will be coming out to decide what kind of costumes they’ll order for

the next year. “The A-Team costume will be popular next year,” he predicted.

Market space reduced in Lansdowne’s first draft Design will evolve, architect says

An initial vision planned for Lansdowne Park includes reduced space for the farmers market, a taller tower at the base of the Bank Street Bridge and roads circumventing the retail and residential section. The public had a chance to view the plans during the Stage 1 site plan meeting. The meeting was the first chance to see how the three components of the park development – the stadium, urban park and retail/residential mixed-use area – would fit together. There will be two towers on the site: one at the corner of Bank Street and Holmwood Avenue, which will feature retail storefront space with condos above, and another at the base of the Bank Street Bridge, which has been increased from a proposed 1,959-squaremetre structure to 3,175 square metres, or around 14 floors. That building is a potential site for a new art gallery. The taller buildings will help give the site “landmark status,” said city planner John Sit. Another tall structure on the site is the Beacon, a 27-metre-tall piece of public art which houses a filtration system to provide clean water for a future splash-pad, as well as irrigation. Other buildings on the site along Holmwood Avenue will be three- to four-storey structures with retail on the ground level. A network of roads is proposed for the park to take visitors through the commercial and retail section of the development off Bank Street. The main driveway off Bank gives visitors a view of the Aberdeen Pavilion and would lead motorists to one of the entrances to the underground parking lot. “It is predominately pedestrian, but it will tolerate cars,” Richard Brisbin, one of the plan’s architects, told a group during a breakout session on the mixedused section. Aberdeen Square, the area in front of

Aberdeen Pavilion, would be a multiuse space with an area for the farmers market that is about half the space the market currently takes up. Landscape architects said the site would allow for 150 vendor stalls in a more space-efficient configuration, but audience members decried the reduction in space. Marta Farevaag, one of the landscape architects working on the urban park, said Aberdeen Square was only recently included as part of the urban park section, and the design for the square will evolve as the architects are able to consult with user groups. The urban park also includes an heirloom orchard, a 15,000-square-metre Great Lawn and a network of hard-surface pathways to allow crews to set up performances throughout the park. NEXT STEPS City planner John Smit emphasized that it is a two-stage site plan process. While the first stage focused on bringCourtesy of the City of Ottawa ing the three elements together into A network of roads is proposed for the park to take visitors through the commercial one vision and creating the basis for and retail section of the development off Bank Street. how the site will be organized, feedback received in Stage 1 will be used to help fine-tune the design for Stage 2, the audience was told. “City staff and partners will continue to work to refine the design,” Smit said. The second stage of the process is set to be completed by June 2011, when council is expected to give its final approval to the project and construction can commence. Cannon Design will take on the stadium aspect of the Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group (OSEG) development, while OSEG will focus on the mixed-use area.

As part of this contract, the existing combined sewer overflow pipe located underneath Scott Street and the transitway must be slip lined with a new pipe. In addition, a separate storm sewer will be constructed on Scott Street.

During construction around the transitway, buses will be temporarily detoured onto Scott Street. This work will occur over two consecutive weekends when bus volumes are at their lowest. Lane reductions will be required during construction. Also, throughout this construction period, traffic on Scott Street will be temporarily reduced from four to two lanes and if necessary, the speed limit will also be reduced through the work zone.

Get vaccinated: say ‘Boo!’ to the flu

The influenza vaccine is now available at doctors’ offices, community health centres and walk-in medical clinics throughout the city. The vaccine is publicly funded and recommended for all people aged six months or older that live, work or study in Ontario. “The flu vaccine is safe, free and the most effective way to protect yourself and your loved ones from the flu,” said Dr. Nadine Sicard, Ottawa’s associate medical officer of health. “Getting the flu vaccine is an easy way to avoid missing school or work, or passing on the flu to those around you”. In the coming weeks, most residents can receive the vaccine from traditional providers such as their family doctor, health care practitioners or at a workplace immunization clinic. There are 727 doctors at 312 sites across Ottawa who will be providing flu vaccines. Ottawa residents will also be able to get the flu vaccine at 37 public clinics in neighbourhoods across the city beginning later this month. “We are seeing a trend where young and middle-aged adults are skipping the vaccine. This is cause for concern as many adults between 20 and 64 years have a chronic condition like lung or heart disease, which puts them at increased risk for complications from influenza” said Sicard.

“Taking this easy step, along with washing your hands often, is the best way to stay healthy this flu season.” This year’s Canadian flu vaccines will cover three strains: the 2009 H1N1 strain, a new H3N2 strain and an influenza B component, which was included in last year’s vaccine. Sicard also reminds Ottawa residents of these key steps to avoid the flu: • Wash your hands with soap and water, or use hand sanitizer. • Cover your coughs and sneezes with your arm, not your hand. • Stay at home if you are sick. The flu is a serious, infectious respiratory illness that is caused by the highly contagious influenza virus. This virus spreads rapidly from person to person, usually by a simple cough or sneeze. Everyone is at risk. On average, people who get the flu can be bed-ridden from one week to 10 days. According to Health Canada, up to 8,000 people, most of them young children and seniors will die this year due to flu-related complications like pneumonia. Visit or call the Ottawa public health information line at 613-5806744 0r 311 to obtain a list of health care providers and community clinics that are administering the flu vaccine. You can also follow Ottawa public health on Twitter @ottawahealth.

Heritage Ottawa will push for provincial intervention at Lansdowne BY LAURA MUELLER

With so much change proposed for the redevelopment of Lansdowne Park, some critics are asking the city to look to the past before it looks into the future. The public finally got a look at plans for the site during the Stage 1 site plan meeting on Oct. 14, and while the proposed retail and condo buildings drew a lot of attention, Heritage Ottawa is hoping to spread the word about how the changes will impact the historic value of the site. There are two heritage buildings at Lansdowne; the most recognizable is the Victorian architecture of Aberdeen Pavilion, known as the Cattle Castle. But the second structure – the more humble Horticultural Building – could prove to be a sticking point for the whole development. Plans released on Oct. 14 show the Horticultural Building moved to the north side of the Aberdeen Pavilion to make way for a series of gardens and orchards planned for the site. Even if the building was not relocated, it would have to be moved in order to allow construction of the underground parking lot that would hold 1,100 cars for the retail and stadium section of Lansdowne, along with 250 spaces allotted for the residential section of the development. Heritage advocates say they don’t want the building moved and they will ask Toronto-area MPP Michael Chan, the minister in charge of culture, to place a stop-work order on the project. “This is our line in the sand,” said David Flemming, president of Heritage Ottawa. Under provincial legislation, the minister has the authority to stop work on a culturally significant building if alteration or removal is likely to damage it. “In any other place in the world, you don’t move a (heritage) building to build a parking lot,” said Flemming. Representatives from Philips Farevaag Smallenberg Landscape Architects, the group that is working on the urban park section of Lansdowne that encompasses the Horticultural Building, said that the decision to move it was “complex.” “There is no question that it is not the best heritage practice to move a building,” said Marta Farevaag during an Oct. 14 site plan meeting. A historical overview prepared by Commonwealth Historic Management Ltd. last February falls short of what is needed to really assess the potential impact of moving the building, says Heritage Ottawa. “Heritage Ottawa urges the disclosure and public discussion of the Cultural Heritage Impact Statement before any discussion of rezoning, in conformity with the legislation and principles of transparency,” the group said in a statement released in September. Another issue is the cost of moving such a delicate building, Flemming said. The city has pegged the potential relocation cost at about $3 million, which would be taken out of the $35-million budget for the urban park at Lansdowne. “They are taking (almost) 10 per cent of that budget to move a building so a developer can build a parking garage,” Flemming said. “That’s pretty weak, as far as the justification goes.” Even though the Horticultural Building would be relocated to benefit site developer Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group (OSEG), that $3-million cost will be paid by the city, Flemming said. “I think it’s scandalous,” he said. The city’s heritage committee will review the matter on Nov. 4. It then heads to the committee of the whole on Nov. 19, and council will vote on it on Nov. 24. Flemming said he isn’t holding out hope that councillors will change their minds and refuse to allow the building’s relocation. The final plans for Lansdowne won’t be approved until June of 2011, after the second stage of the site plan process. With regards to the Aberdeen Pavilion, the On-

tario Heritage Trust has told the city and developers they must maintain sightlines to Aberdeen from Bank Street. The provincial heritage organization has a say in the development because it contributed about $2 million towards the building’s renovation. In August, the Heritage Canada Foundation named Lansdowne as one of Canada’s 10 most endangered heritage sites. That danger increases if changes like the relocation of the 96-year-old Horticultural Building are permitted, Flemming said. Even if the building does end up being moved and remains intact, part of its heritage value will be lost. “It takes it out of context,” Flemming said of moving the building. “Part of what makes it a heritage building is not just the bricks and mortar – it’s what it rep-

resents.” Moving the building without a safety reason compromises its heritage value, Flemming said. According to a history of the building prepared by Heritage Ottawa member Andrew Elliot, the Horticultural Building was designed in the Prairie style by Francis Conroy Sullivan, the only Canadian pupil of Frank Lloyd Wright. The two-storey front section at one time housed an entrance hall and banquet room. The back section served as both an exhibition area and curling rink. Currently, the building’s rear space is used to store equipment and the front area is largely unused. It was designated in 1994 under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act.

Football Faucons flying high DAN PLOUFFE

The Franco-Cité Faucons are one step away from an undefeated season in the National Capital Tier 2 senior football league. And as the second-year team reaches for the milestone on Friday, Oct. 29 at Holy Trinity, the program that brings together players from all city French Catholic schools shows no signs of slowing down. “So far, so good,” smiles Serge Boisvert, the Faucons’ coach who launched the city’s first Frenchlanguage high school football squad in over 20 years last fall. “I think every team’s got the same goal – to go all the way. But I think the only people that can beat us is ourselves.” Although the Smyth Road school has enjoyed plenty of on-field success – the Faucons went 4-2 in the 2009 regular season and then lost 3-1 in the semi-finals to league-champion St. Patrick prior to their 5-0 start this year – that’s not how Boisvert measures the program’s overall success. “Football is a great way to keep them in school,” explains Boisvert, noting he wouldn’t have gone to college and university himself had he not been playing football. “That was the reason I stayed in school.” When he compared students’ attendance and grades from previous semesters, Boisvert saw across-the-board improvements during the semester they were in the football program. On top of spending a portion of their school day training as part of the Franco-Cité sports-études (sports-study) program, the students’ course work is also football-related. In math, for instances, they might use football stats in their problems, and in language classes, they’ll read football books. The French Catholic school board’s two-year pilot project also allows students from other school boards without football teams to attend Franco-

Alvan Julien and his Franco-Cite Faucons escaped the clutches of the Colonel By Cougars in a 24-14 victory last week. Two players from Franco-Ouest also suit up for the Faucons thanks to the French Catholic school board’s pilot football program.

Cité for a semester before returning to their home schools. Of the Faucons’ 42 players, 15 are visiting students – mostly from Samuel-Genest, a couple from Garneau and Franco-Ouest, and one player from Béatrice-Desloges on the outskirts of Orléans, Olivier Miguel. “I really wanted to experience the high school feeling of football,” notes Miguel, who leaves for school at 7:30 a.m. and gets home around 8 p.m. after hour-and-15-minute bus rides each way. “It’s a lot harder, but you adjust. And the team spirit is the best. We’re all like brothers. It’s just awesome.” The Grade 12 defensive captain is certainly enjoying his team’s undefeated campaign thus far, including a pair of shutouts. “It’s a good feeling, and I hope it keeps going because I just want to get to the final and graduate with a championship,” Miguel says. “We want to show that Franco has a lot of talent and make St. Pete’s scared for next year.” Before the Faucons can try to give the two-time defending champions a run for their money in the Tier 1 ranks, they’ll have to get approval to carry on the football program year-round because of different transfer rules for the top-level league and the provincial championships. Boisvert expects to find out later this month if the year-long idea will get the thumbs up, which would also give him the chance to work with players in the off-season to improve their conditioning – a necessity in his eyes to be able to compete with the likes of St. Peter. “We’re ready for it – our coaches and our system will be ready for it,” says Boisvert, who also looks forward to having a field to play on next season after construction forced his team to practice on the school’s baseball diamond all year. “At St. Peter, it’s like a machine that’s constantly turning. We want to build something like that.”

Audrey Hanniman In fond remembrance of “my old friend� who passed away Oct. 28, 2009

My Old Friend Today I said goodbye to my old friend I pray some day we get to meet again Under one more clear, blue sky Up there where the eagles y And we’ll go walking in the sunshine With a big smile on our face, Race the river to the ocean, Go splashing in the waves, And I’ll wrap my arms around you, We’ll be together once again. And I’ll tell you how much I’ve missed you My old friend. I know you’re up there looking down On that rainbow bridge we talked about, There’s a place for me and you Somewhere up there behind the moon. (Song & lyrics Johnny Reid)

I think of you often Reina
