Tensions had been running high in the Britannia Village community over a project to prevent flooding, but a recent public update meeting gave residents on both sides of the issue the chance to speak their minds. “Having everyone in the room

took away a lot of tension,” said John McWhinnie, a resident in the village who’s against the berm project. “It was a good information exchange.” The meeting was hosted by former Bay Ward councillor Alex Cullen and included city staff, Bruce Reid of the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority who is responsible for the project and new Bay Ward Coun.

Mark Taylor. While at city hall, Cullen had positioned himself in favour of the flood barrier project for houses that sit along the Ottawa River in an existing flood plain. On Nov. 29, he gave a brief overview of the project and Reid discussed the next steps in moving the project along. “The basic message is the project is moving forward,”

said Cullen. “Even though there were rumours floating around and a petition as well, it doesn’t change the nature of the project.” While Cullen said the project is moving forward, McWhinnie said he felt most people were in opposition to the flood proofing barrier. See QUESTIONS on page 36

Heritage committee happy with convent plans Significant areas of site protected KRISTY WALLACE kristy.wallace@metroland.com

428824

Developers and residents aren’t completely happy with adopted plans for the development of a former Westboro convent site, but the city heritage committee is pleased with the result so far. “From a heritage standpoint, it’s so much more improved from the first options we saw,” said Chris Mulholland, chairman of the Built Heritage Advisory Committee. “It’s come a long way.” The committee recently heard the update on the convent’s status and was presented with what council supported in terms of the heritage designations placed on the site. Mulholland said there were no negative feelings towards what was presented and the revised statement of heritage attributes was much more substantial than it was before – including

more emphasis on plans for the grounds of the site, including trees and a walkway. Currently the whole site is designated as heritage and the new proposal endorsed by council excludes any new buildings on the site. However, this won’t be finalized until after a conservation review board hearing in January. Still, the Built Heritage Advisory Committee is happy that aspects of the site will be maintained once the condominium is developed. The portions of the site that will be maintained include the gardens, trees, monastery, open space around the convent, space along the east side of the property including the walkway towards Byron Avenue and areas along the south and west edges of the property. “To protect landscape is not something often done in Ottawa,” said Mulholland. “It’s a positive move forward to designate something with no building on it and focus more on the landscape.” While he admits there were contentious moments between

of this, it’s that we need to work together and the result will be a lot better,” he said. Since the land where the new condominium building is go-

ing will likely not be designated heritage, Mulholland said his committee’s role will be diminished on those aspects of the property. He wants to make sure the areas that will maintain the heritage designation will not be affected in the years to come. “We can assume it’ll be a sharp looking condo, and design-wise there won’t be a huge affect on heritage attributes,” he said. “As long the heritage won’t be overshadowed, we won’t be involved in direct commenting on the design of the building since it’s not on heritage land.” He said the committee feels the project has come a long way in terms of maintaining the heritage aspects of the property, but he added that the committee can see how the developer wants to push for something more while the residents have strong feelings about the project’s affect on the area, including increased traffic. “Our only concern is the heritage, and as long as it’s protected we’re reasonably happy,” said Mulholland. “To us, the heritage is the most important part.”

Infrastructure deadline change will save city $2.7M JENNIFER MCINTOSH AND LAURA MUELLER jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com laura.mueller@metroland.com

All of Ottawa’s 130 infrastructure construction projects will be done on time after the federal government announced on Dec. 2 it will extend the funding deadline until October of 2011. The extra time will mean the city will save approximately $2.7 million – the extra amount it would have had to pay to cover the federal government’s por-

tion of the remaining work. The new deadline will give the projects another full construction season – to Oct. 31, 2011 – to complete the work. The city was already on schedule to complete 98 per cent of the work by the spring deadline – ahead of its urban counterparts, which had an average of 8 or 9 per cent of projects expected to go past the deadline. In Ottawa, construction on Hazeldean and Terry Fox roads was expected to go over the spring deadline. The extension will save the

city about $2.7-million dollars, city officials said on Dec. 3. While about $8 million of the city’s construction projects were expected to take longer than March 31, 2011, the province already extended its deadline, so Ottawa would have been on the hook for its own $2.7-million share, as well as the federal government’s contribution of the same amount. That’s very good news for the city, said Mayor Jim Watson, who said municipalities and the provinces have been lobbying the feds to loosen the deadline. The March deadline didn’t mean much for local construction projects, which were rushing to completion before the ground froze. “Paving plants shut down here

in the winter,� Watson said. In addition to Terry Fox and Hazeldean, as the Wellspring Ottawa Cancer Survivorship Centre project off of Alta Vista Drive will benefit from the deadline extension, said John Baird, MP for Ottawa West-Nepean. “I know that for the Alta Vista project, they were talking about bringing in a tent and a heater for the ground so they could work through the winter, so now they have a little more breathing room.� Baird said the extension would also mean the continuation of construction work, keeping people employed longer. “Once these projects are done, we will be very close to the beginning of the start of the work for light rail in Ottawa.�

The total value of the city’s 130 Economic Stimulus Fund projects is around $409 million. There were 8,800 stimulus projects done in Ontario and provincial Minister of Infrastructure Bob Chiarelli said about 98.5 per cent of them would be completed under budget and on time. “There are only about 166 projects in the whole province that won’t be completed on time and they have very good reasons, like soil conditions and the like,� he said. The funding program was announced in February 2009 as a way to kick-start the economy. The federal government has given out around $16 billion for approximately 23,000 projects across the country.

Members of Ottawa’s business community gathered downtown on Nov. 29 for the 13th annual Trees of Hope contest to raise funds for the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. “The Trees of Hope event is the beginning of the Holiday season for us,� said Norma Lamont, vice president of community development for the CHEO Foundation. “When you see the trees, all lit up, hear the choir singing, see the kids faces who attend the event – that sparkle in their eyes, and hear the adults talking about the holidays and looking for gifts for loved ones, it is all so magical,� The large crowd gathered in the ballroom at the Chateau Laurier for the tree decoration competition and to bid in a silent auction to raise funds for CHEO. The Elmwood School Choir also performed at the event. At the end of the night, the decorated trees are displayed throughout the halls of the hotel for all to enjoy throughout the upcoming holiday season. The hotel expects approximately 8,000 visitors during the holiday season, all of whom will have the opportunity to cast a vote in the people’s choice awards until Jan. 2, 2011. Money from the corporate entry fees and donations from the people’s choice award will be combined with the proceeds from the silent auction and donated to CHEO.

Elementary school students helped in the gift wrapping party last year for the Be a Santa to a Senior campaign. Above, they are pictured with Santa Claus at the annual gift wrapping. ity in the donations is reflective on the people of Ottawa. “There’s a modesty in Ottawa,” he said. “People are doing this because it’s the right thing, not to receive accolades.” Sullivan said some of the gifts requested by the seniors include toiletries, creams, scented soaps, blankets, bathrobes and chocolates. Fenn added that he’s noticed that seniors often request slippers. “Foot comfort so important, especially in the winter,” he said. The first weekend the campaign launched this year at the mall, Fenn said all the tags on the Christmas tree were gone and they had to bring more. It’s been the same every year, he said, adding that people from outside Ottawa even come to the shopping centre to buy gifts for seniors. Sullivan said last year she collected more than 500 gifts and this year there are more than 600 names she’s received from organizations in Ottawa that supports seniors.

This holiday season, many seniors across the Ottawa area might not have a family to share Christmas with and risk being isolated or forgotten. That’s why you might see a giant Christmas tree in the middle of the Carlingwood Shopping Centre food court with hundreds of presents accumulating beneath its boughs. It’s all part of campaign by Home Instead Senior Care called Be a Santa to Senior. “It’s always important to do things like this and be part of it,” said Frank Fenn, Carlingwood’s manager. “And it’s good for the community.” This is the third year the west-end shopping centre has been participating in the campaign during the holidays. Be a Santa to a Senior encourages shoppers to pick up a paper tree ornament at the shopping centre’s food court and buy the item on the senior’s wish list written on the ornament. Then, the shopper returns the gift unwrapped to the participating location with the ornament attached to it. The Home Instead Senior Care network has 29 locations across Canada and partners with members of the community who help make the initiative a reality. Lesley Sullivan, owner of the Home Instead Senior Care in Ottawa, said the initiative started in the United States and Ottawa adopted it three years ago. “Christmas tends to focus on kids and families,” Sullivan said. “And we wanted to make sure that we could provide a focus on as many isolated seniors in Ottawa.” Fenn said one thing he’s noticed through the three years of taking part in the campaign is how generous the community has been. He said the tree is placed in one of the mall’s high-traffic areas and he said he’s been astonished at how many donors are picking up ornaments or anonymously dropping off gifts. “They quietly take the ornament and buy the gift,” he said. “They try not to be obvious that they’re doing something.” He added that the hint of anonym-

EDITORIAL

Ottawa’s eyes could be bigger than its stomach From the bleachers, and the press box, it would appear to be an exciting time for sports in the nation’s capital. Minto CEO Roger Greenberg announced on Nov. 30 that his Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group (OSEG) is likely to lock up a North American Soccer League Div. 2 team by the end of the calendar year for the 2013 season. Ottawa’s latest Canadian Football League franchise – to be renamed Rough Riders if Greenberg has his way – is scheduled to attempt its third try that same year as well. On top of that, the Toronto Blue Jays have even been rumoured to be bringing a minorleague affiliate team to town.

Throw in one-off events like the 2012 NHL All-Star Game and, to a lesser extent, the 2015 Canadian Little League Championships, and everything appears to be nice and rosy. But has Ottawa bitten off more than it can chew? Remember this is the same city that has already lost two CFL franchises – albeit more so for ownership reasons. It is the same city that’s gone through three separate baseball franchises in as many years and doesn’t exactly pack Ottawa Stadium for games involving the Inter-County League’s Fat Cats. But, most alarmingly, Ottawa is also the same city whose fans couldn’t sell out the Scotia-

bank Place for the return Dany Heatley on Dec. 2. Sure those who did attend were a boisterous bunch, denouncing public enemy No. 1 every chance, but to have a reported 1,000 empty seats doesn’t exactly paint Ottawa as a strong sports town. Undoubtedly, the price point for any new sporting business will cater more to families than those wearing suits and ties, but this is supposed to be “Hockey Country.” And if your stomach is too full to enjoy bread and butter, dessert might not be the best option. So while it certainly looks like Ottawa’s sporting scene is ballooning quickly, it could end up being just a lot of hot air.

COLUMN

A debate that keeps going around in circles The subject of roundabouts is moving up on the list of topics people in and around Ottawa like to fight about. Right now it trails the two leaders — lawn chairs at music festivals and pedestrians vs cyclists on bicycle paths. But, as a scan of the letters-to-the-editor pages shows, the roundabout is moving up and could soon hit the top. The topic owes its current popularity to the introduction of a roundabout at St. Joseph and Jeanne d’Arc Boulevard in Orleans. Some are delighted by it. Some are confused. Some may still be going around inside. All have an opinion. As an example, check out the CBC and CTV news websites, where readers offer dozens of contradicting opinions. Actually, the subject is not all that new. For years people have been offering their view that traffic congestion could be eased by replacing stop lights and four-way stops signs with the roundabout, which is said to work wonders in Europe. Now these people have been joined by less enthusiastic citizens, who say that the roundabout system is too confusing to work here. Some have not driven the Orleans roundabout, some have. To complicate matters still further, many have driven the Prince of WalesExperimental Farm roundabout where

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town a different set of rules has been in place until just recently. Only years of practice will determine whether the roundabout system will work here. Meanwhile, it is fun to ponder why we argue so hard about such matters. My theory, which took a while to get to, is that Canadians are divided into two irreconcilable solitudes once again. In this instance, the two solitudes are Euro Wannabes and North American Diehards. The Wannabes want Canada to be more like Europe. Having people drive around in circles would be a step in that direction. Euro Wannabes also like the idea of having children drink wine at the age of 12. They can’t figure out why North Americans don’t vote for policies that work really well in Sweden. And

they can’t for the life of them figure out why soccer, which is such a beautiful game, has not displaced hockey and our version of football from the hearts of North Americans. North American Diehards embrace the culture that has developed here — including baseball, drive-thru fast food, gigantic cars and loud music and eightlane intersections with turn arrows pointing in all directions. They complain about European countries having so many elections, although Diehards Canadians have stopped talking about that so much in recent years. As you can see, there is a little bit of unreality in both positions. In a perfect world, North American cities would be full of pretty little squares, tiny cars and cute cafés where people actually sat down to drink coffee, rather than rushing along the street carrying it in a takeout cup. Mind you, in a perfect world, Europe would be a bit more welcoming to immigrants and have places to park. Also comfortable chairs in restaurants. Clearly it is not a perfect world. Still, the debate could be useful if people recognized that we are different and that elements of one culture don’t always transfer to another. Some North American free spirits think the permissive drug policies of the Netherlands would

be splendid here, but that will never happen. On a more basic level, the siesta is a wonderful feature of some European countries. But it will never happen here, and we know it. As for baseball, a truly beautiful North American game, being adopted in Europe, forget it. Now, it is not true that we, or they, are completely unable to change. Just think how little smoking there is now, compared with 30 years ago; think how many designated drivers there are now, compared with then. This may give encouragement to those who think North Americans can learn to drive in circles. Belgians playing baseball might take a little longer.

Elvis enthusiasts still spreading Christmas cheer BY KRISTY WALLACE kristy.wallace@metroland.com

It’s Christmas time and the king of rock n roll’s spirit is still alive and well in Westboro – just ask the Elvis Sighting Society. The registered Ottawa charity is once again holding its annual Christmas dinner at the Newport Restaurant – reflecting the giving spirit of Elvis Presley. “Elvis was known for his charitable work,” said Rita Hansen, a member of the society. “Our mandate is to provide aid and comfort to women, children and people who are in less fortunate circumstances.” The Newport Restaurant has had its doors open on Christmas for quite some time, and the Elvis Sighting Society volunteered to help organize the dinner. What started as a dinner mainly for the needy has turned into a dinner for everyone – from young couples to university students who can’t get home for the holidays. Paul Kuster, a volunteer on the society’s christmas dinner committee, has been volunteering with his wife Ruth at the dinner for almost 20 years. He starts preparing for the event as early as late August to get everything ready. “I can’t imagine Christmas without coming here every year,” said Kuster. Over the years he has seen his share of different people with different stories

come out and spend their Christmas at the restaurant. He’ll always remember the one year when three men who has just immigrated to Canada from Russia a few days before Christmas and hadn’t eaten anything since they got to Canada. The men ate three meals each and even took some leftovers home. Years later, one of them came back to the restaurant with their wife and new baby to celebrate the holidays. “It’s a great atmosphere to be in on Christmas Day,” said Kuster. He added that over the years the event has also brought in more people – thanks to word of mouth advertising. “The event is for everyone,” he said. “No one should be alone at Christmas.” In addition to the full turkey dinner served all day, a fire truck full of presents also gets delivered to the restaurant. This dinner also has expanded to provide food to Meals-On-Wheels on Christmas Day and even has a home delivery service for those who might not want to leave their home. “It’s a word of mouth thing. People start lining up at 10:30 a.m.,” she said. “It’s just a matter of being all inclusive.” She added that everybody gets a gift when after they finish dinner and are ready to leave.

Customers still loyal to local shops this holiday season Relaxed atmosphere, personal touch offer alternative to malls BY KRISTY WALLACE kristy.wallace@metroland.com

Some of the most popular gift ideas this year might come from big box stores – but local shops in Ottawa’s west end are still thriving. “There’s more loyalty now than there has been in the past,” said Cheryl Parrott, an active member of Hintonburg’s economic development committee. While big box stores like Walmart and Future Shop might carry many gifts that are high in demand this year, Parrott said this type of customer loyalty at the local level is one thing that helps community businesses thrive. She remembers when Giant Tiger in Hintonburg burned down a couple years ago and the emotional impact it had on residents in the community who regularly shopped there. “You build relationships with owners and staff and it becomes very pleasant to shop rather than be a chore,” said Parrott. Annie Hillis of the Wellington West BIA agrees that the personalized cus-

Cheryl Parrott, an active member of Hintonburg’s economic development committee, says local shopping this holiday season can provide a much more relaxed experience to when compared to malls or big-box stores. tomer service local stores offer shoppers keeps them coming back, but comparing big box stores to smaller shops is like comparing apples and oranges. “We’re the mall-ternative,” said Hillis. “Our chief strengths are the unique ex-

perience and personal touch we bring to those who shop here.” Parrott added that local stores have a bigger benefit to communities like Hintonburg and Wellington West, which are very much “walk and shop” com-

munities where shoppers might not have cars to get around. If they ever need anything or want to go Christmas shopping, the stores they need to get to are just steps away. Hillis agrees that the local shopping experience is a much more relaxed atmosphere than fighting the crowds at bigger stores. “We have this image of the harried and stressed out shopper at this time of year, but shopping doesn’t have to be an unpleasant task,” said Hillis. “We’re making the experience nicer.” When it comes to fears of more people shopping online or traveling to the U.S. for shopping, Hillis thinks it’s largely anecdotal. “People still need to see, touch, taste, smell and hear what they are buying,” she said. “Shopping is as much about the physical experience as it is about price point.” Hillis adds that she finds more and more people are discovering what it means to shop local, which also fits in well with environmental and sustainability movements. Parrott said Hintonburg’s economic development committee encourages people to shop locally – especially at such an important time like the holiday season. “You need to support businesses here and then they support the community,” Parrott said. “It keeps your community vibrant.”

School boards sign community-based violence protocol The four regional school boards and the Ottawa Police signed a community-based violence and threat-assessment protocol on Nov. 30 in an effort to implement collaborative and pro-active planning in relation to safety issues. “The plan has really developed from the time of the Columbine shooting to deal with those kinds

of issues,” Sgt. Mark Houldsworth, with the Ottawa police youth section, said. “The bonuses to having the protocol is having the police, the schools and the community partners come together and share resources.” The Ottawa-Carleton District School Board, the Ottawa Catholic Board, The Ottawa Police, le Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est and le Conseil des écoles publiques de l’Est de l’Ontario came together under

Public hearing on racial profiling turns to Bonds case JENNIFER MCINTOSH jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

Members of the city’s ethnic community packed into a public consultation held at the Confederation Education Centre on Nov. 30 to hear the details of a draft policy on racial profiling developed for Ottawa Police. Tempers ran high at several points as people questioned the speakers about the recent case of Stacy Bonds, a 27-year-old black woman who was strip searched after being arrested on Rideau Street for public intoxication. An Ontario Court of Justice stayed the charge in a verbal ruling issued on Oct. 27. Even though the meeting had been scheduled months before details of the Bond arrest became public, tempers ran high as people demanded answers from police. Police Services Board chair Eli El-Chantiry said the board and police would not be able to talk specifically about the Bonds case because it is the subject of investigation. Ottawa police were also conducting their own investigation into the incident before the SIU began its probe. But the case was on the minds of many in the crowd, some of whom shared their stories of alleged profiling. Andrew Nellis, spokesperson for the Ottawa Pandhandlers Union, had some harsh words to say to the police, calling the officers that patrol the market “meatheads” and accusing the police of being in league with Byward Market and Rideau Street Business Improvement Areas. “We have restaurant owners allowing officers to sit in their place of business and patrol the streets, and the officers see a black person and think that they are a crack head,” he said. Oni Joseph, former candidate for Bay Ward and member of Leadership Ottawa, accused the police of putting the cart before the horse. “You can’t really call it a public consultation if the document was created before the public has a chance to see it,” she said to University of Windsor law professor David Tanovich, who helped develop the policy, which is expected to be implemented in the spring of 2011. Tanovich said the development of a policy would help address some of the issues people are worried about. Tanovich said that are a lot of myths about racial profiling and that debunking those myths was the key to moving forward.

this partnership. One of the strengths of this school board-community partnership lies in the multi-disciplinary composition of the response team to respond appropriately to threat making behavior. While the school officials and police form the basis of the response team and the protocol, support may be sought from other community partners depending on the circumstances. The response team will share and

review student information and together will create a plan of action that benefits students, staff and the community. “Each school board had their own plan in place before,” Petra Duschner, with the student services, psychology department at OCDSB said. She said the protocol would look at “worrisome” behaviours like disturbing drawings and start action earlier to nip bullying and threat-making behaviours in the bud before

they become violent and require the involvement of the police. The overall design and approach of the local protocol is based on the work of Kevin Cameron of the Canadian Center for Threat Assessment and Trauma Response. Cameron lead the crisis response team in Taber, Alta., when a Canadian student entered his school with hundreds of rounds of ammunition, just eight days after the tragedy at Columbine.

Elite ballers poised to clash in new league BY DAN PLOUFFE

May, JUEL teams will come together for their league contests. The centralized location allows university and college recruiters to keep an eye on the best talent more easily, while the limited number of games and competition weekends should help teams gain more practice time and keep from burning out. “This is kind of a pilot project at this age level to see how it works,” says Nationals coach Dave Malowski, a Glebe Collegiate Institute teacher who recently moved from Manitoba. “If it flourishes, you’re probably going to see it filter down to all the levels in hopes of trying to better the game of basketball.” The Ottawa region finds itself a step up on their provincial competitors since the Nationals and the Capitals formed a separate entity from the club system (which features geographic-oriented teams such as Gloucester-Cumberland, Kanata and Barrhaven) specifically for the junior age group. “The clubs are competitive,” Shoup notes, explaining the best players from a club they’ve been with since childhood may not want to join a rival club. “If there was only one JUEL team in an area, we’d be forcing through boundar-

On the eve of the start of the inaugural Junior Elite League (JUEL) provincial basketball season, the Ottawa Capitals and Ottawa Nationals find themselves participating in a competition loop that could serve as an ideal model for other regions, and other sports. JUEL play begins on Dec. 11 in Kingston and Windsor for the 22 best under-19 girls’ club teams in Ontario. “We’ve played tournaments (with competitive clubs of all levels) for years, and if you’re lucky, you get two good games out of five,” recalls Ottawa Capitals coach Murray Shoup, noting it wasn’t useful to strong or weak teams to have games decided by upwards of 30 points. “We’d have tournaments where we’d have five or six games in a weekend. By the time you get to the last games, it’s just about who survives, not who’s any good,” Shoup adds. “Now, all these weekends should have three reasonably competitive games.” On every second weekend throughout the winter until the championship tournament in

Here, it’s not associated.” The coaches of the University of Ottawa Gee-Gees and Carleton Ravens women’s basketball programs were also involved in the initial setup of the Ottawa JUEL squads, chose Shoup and Malowski as coaches, and continue to oversee the teams as mentors. The Ottawa Shock club, previously run by Gee-Gees coach Andy Sparks, no longer exists. It’s a concept many boys’ basketball participants envy – par-

ents often grumble that since the Next Level Academy is associated with Ottawa U and the Guardsmen with Carleton, players essentially have to pick a university destination in their early teens. The JUEL season also doesn’t interfere with the high school campaign, which was certainly appreciated by members of the LouisRiel Rebelles, who captured an OFSAA title Nov. 27 and make up a good portion of Ottawa’s JUEL teams. The 26 players for both the

Capitals and Nationals were selected through joint tryouts in September, but didn’t have their first practices until last week. The local teams aren’t really sure how they’ll fare in their first season, mostly because they don’t know if the top players in other regions gravitated towards the JUEL entries, or stuck with their own clubs. “I do know we have the best kids in the Ottawa area,” Shoup says, adding that three other local club teams will continue to compete towards the Ontario Cup as in past years. “I see us easily both being in the Top 10. If they all go together well, we’re in good shape.” The Nationals will be led by youth national team members Kellie Ring and Rashida Timbilla along with Catherine Traer, while the Capitals should feature a lineup with a bit more depth top-to-bottom. “The whole goal wasn’t to pick an ‘A’ and ‘B’ team to win the whole league. It was about where they were going to benefit the most,” explains Malowski, highlighting that the formula fits nicely overall into Basketball Canada’s longterm athlete development model. “Getting these kids to mesh together from the various clubs and play together I think is a good thing. The game is about teaching lifelong friendships also.”

Tough national opponents serve Ice well at home tourney BY DAN PLOUFFE dplouffe@metroland.com

The tournament headquarters at Jim Durrell Complex was abuzz all weekend as 56 teams visited for City of Ottawa Ringette Association’s 28th-annual tournament Dec. 3-5, which saw the host Ice capture three division titles. “It’s a fun competition,� says Ice player Alicia Hall. “Away tournaments are really fun too, but it’s nice to see different teams from different places.� Hall’s Junior ‘AA’ squad got to match up with the opponent that traveled the furthest for the event. Even though the Manitoba Magic downed them 5-2 in the final to win the category, Ottawa enjoyed receiving the tough test even though the championship wasn’t theirs. “When we heard they were coming, we were all really excited,� notes Ice coach Hugh Kellam. “We knew it would be a really good challenge and it’s a great opportunity for us to play against some of the western competition, which we don’t get to do every day.� From the other side, the

Magic also savoured the chance to play against some eastern clubs. Manitoba coaches Megan Hingey and Meaghan Pacholek, – both university students who previously attended the tournament as players – observed that the style of play was different in Ottawa with more aggressive opponents. “We picked the Ottawa tournament because we knew there’d be good representation from the Ontario teams,� explains Hingey, whose girls made sure to get in some time as tourists by visiting Parliament Hill and munching on Beavertails. “They’ve been really welcoming here.� The Ice were glad to face such a quick, fast-paced team to help them build towards making a run at an Ontario title, which would allow them to compete at the national championships and potentially get another shot at the Magic. “We want to get to provincials and win,� states Hall, a Grade 10 Immaculata High School student. “That’s what our goal is every year, and every year we come really close and just miss it, but this year, I have a feeling we’re going to get it.� The Ice will attend a couple

more tournaments in Waterloo and Whitby before the big show at the end of February – the ‘AA’ provincials, which will be held back in Ottawa this season. “It should be nice to have that home-court advantage, and we’re looking to take advantage of that,� smiles Kellam, whose group was ranked No. 2 in Ontario two years ago. “There’s a lot of expectations for our team. These girls have been working hard off the ice and on the ice. I think we’ve got a really solid group.� In other action at the CORA tourney, the hometown Ice won ‘A’ division crowns in the two oldest levels, as the Belle group downed West Ottawa 3-2 for the title and the Juniors beat Nepean 5-1. Two Ottawa teams met in the Tween ‘C’ championship, with the purple team prevailing. Nepean topped Gloucester to take the Junior ‘B’ event, and also knocked off Ottawa 2-1 in the Tween ‘AA’ final. Clarence-Rockland matched Ottawa’s trio of titles with triumphs in Petite ‘B’ (over Metcalfe) and ‘C’ (over Ottawa) as well as Novice ‘C’, while Gloucester won Novice ‘B’.

REMEMBERING THE FALLEN Dozens of people gathered to mark the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women at Minto Park in Centretown on Monday, Dec. 6. An aboriginal women’s drum circle from Minwaashin Lodge performed before volunteers from the audience read out the names of the 14 women shot and killed at Montreal’s Ecole Polytechnique 21 years ago. In addition to remembering the massacre that shocked the country, the day is an opportunity to reflect on violence against women in general. According to Status of Women Canada, an average of 178 women and girls were killed every year between 1994 and 2008. In 2008 alone, there were 146 female victims of homicide in Canada. Of those, 45 were victims of spousal homicide. Volunteers also read the names of local women who died at the hands of men in the past year.

Linda moved from nursing, to educating nurses, to designing programs to educate nurses, to helping schools design programs to educate nurses. She did this while raising two daughters, making a home with her husband and anchoring the family life of her 5 siblings. As if that wasn’t enough, she’s spent her retirement sitting on boards, seeing to the quality of health services. This level of commitment – though exceptional – is not entirely unusual for nurses. Three weeks ago, led by Chief Nursing Executive, Dr. Ginette Rodger, close to 400 nurses from The Ottawa Hospital celebrated a major career milestone achieved in 2010. Some completed a Master’s Degree. Some moved from a Registered Practical Nurse to a Registered Nurse role (with the additional clinical responsibilities that this entails). Others presented research to healthcare conferences in Canada and abroad. Still more obtained recognition from peers and patients for their compassionate care. All have one thing in common. They make the hospital a better place. The next time a doctor cures you thanks to their skills, technique, or technology, take a look around.

Ottawa residents will be able to spend more time at the beach this summer after the city flipped the switch on a new control system for its sewers. The improvements aim to reduce the number of times sewage overflows into the Ottawa River each year. The cutting-edge technology will give city staff more control over sewer regulators throughout the city. It’s part of a larger, $100-million Ottawa River Action Plan that was initiated two years ago after it came to light that raw sewage was being dumped into the Ottawa River. Mayor Jim Watson credited Orléans Coun. Bob Monette with being the “hero of the Ottawa River” for bringing the issue to light after the councillor took a tour of a wastewater facility two years ago. “We’ve been able to make a lot of positive movement for the river,” he said. “The public expects and demands clean and safe water … . This is a step in the right direction.” Watson said the sewage spills are unacceptable from an envi-

money to the City of Ottawa, adding that the move was in response to the “huge amount of disgust” and public uproar over news of the sewage leakage. The federal government will introduce legislation that will see any such spills banned within the next 20 years, Baird said. In order to achieve that goal of zero spills, Chevalier said the city will be building reservoirs within the next five years. In the meantime, the real time control system will allow city staff to remotely activate the overflow equipment in the city’s underground sewer regulators. It also allows staff to closely monitor flow data in the combined sewers, which handle both wastewater and stormwater runoff. Watson noted that his involvement in the Ottawa River Action Plan has come full-circle, as he first announced funding for the project while he was the province’s Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing. Ottawa-Orléans MPP Phil McNeely and MP Royal Galipeau were on hand for the event, and Galipeau was the only politician to brave the climb down to the sewer control centre.

A ceremonial cheque was presented to Prostate Cancer Canada on behalf of the Ottawa Movember campaign.

Successful Movember draws to a close BY: CHRIS KLUS Close to 100 people descended on an Elgin Street restaurant on Nov. 30 to raise money for prostate cancer. The air at Johnny Farina’s was bristling with Mo Bros – men who had grown moustaches during the month of November – to decide on the first prize best moustache and the second prize “best try.” The Movember movement, a slang term created for the growing of moustaches in November, originally started in Australia in 2003 as a way to raise awareness and money for men’s health with a focus on prostate cancer.

tinued to grow year after year and last year’s Canadian campaign was the second largest in the world behind Australia, with 35,156 Mo Bros and coming together to raise $7.8 million for Prostate Cancer Canada. The event was hosted by Dino Iafeleice, the owner of Johnny Farina’s and organized by Greg Miskie. Featured guest speaker Harvey Nuelle, president of the Prostate Cancer Association of Ottawa and a prostate cancer survivor himself, said there is a continuing need to increase awareness of and to provide counselling and support for men diagnosed with prostate cancer.

CHEO dream home more than just a lottery miracle Children real winners in sweepstakes EMMA JACKSON emma.jackson@metroland.com

If winning the CHEO dream home in Manotick this December seems like a miracle, it’s nothing compared to the daily wonders at the very place the lottery tickets support. Owen Varty, a six-and-a-halfyear-old Riverside South resident, is one of those miracles, having been transferred to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario the day he was born and undergoing emergency surgery at only two days old. After his c-section birth, doctors discovered that his stomach and intestines were pushed into his lung cavity and that his lung had collapsed. A mobile CHEO team put him on life support before transporting him to the hospital. “They showed me what he was going to look like beforehand, because that’s a real shock to see them all hooked up, and they let me say goodbye and then they took him,” explained

Owen’s mother Monica Coyne, who was a first time mother that day. But Owen survived, and from then on he has been in and out of CHEO for a number of reasons, most recently to receive his second cochlear implant to account for severe progressive hearing loss. “When he was about 10 months old, I got concerned that maybe he couldn’t hear,” Coyne said. “He didn’t turn to his name, and there were quite a few other things that I noticed. The neonatal sent us to an audiologist who found he had significant hearing loss in both ears.” By 13 months, Owen was outfitted with hearing aids, which Coyne said opened up a whole new world for her son. “He took to it quite quickly, and he realized, ‘Hey, I like hearing!’ It was like his eyes were opening up, like ‘wow, this is cool,’ ” she said. By age 2, Owen’s hearing had dropped to the point where the aids weren’t helping anymore. A year later, Owen received his first cochlear implant, an innovative computerized hearing device that is surgically placed

Owen has been a regular CHEO patient since the day he was born, most recently in September when he received his second cochlear implant to help him hear. inside the inner ear. “Once he got that implant, he really took off,” Coyne said, adding that his speech barely lets on that he can’t hear.

“He really does sound like a child his age, which is the most amazing part.” In October, Owen’s second cochlear implant was switched

on. “Now with the second one his hearing is even better,” Coyne said. “He does still have some difficulty in noisy environments, and directionality things can be hard. But in a one on one setting it’s the same as you and I.” Although no parent wants to take their child to the hospital, especially on a regular basis, Coyne said the CHEO staff have always made the experience more bearable. “The things we had to experience were hard, but they really do keep you upbeat and they never let you lose hope. No one ever did. Owen thinks going to CHEO is a blast, and his younger sister asks, ‘Why can’t I go?’ ” A year and a half ago, when Owen had to have bowel surgery caused by scar tissue from his infant surgery, he was hospitalized for six weeks, but the staff made life easier. “They have so many fun things for the kids to do, and as soon as he could walk again he went straight to the air hockey table. It really is a great place and they take care of the families as well,” See KIDS on page 25

Children the real winners Toy to help kids Kinect at CHEO

From CHEO on page 24 Coyne said, adding that it was hard to keep life normal when one parent was always at the hospital. “But his younger sister would go, the nurses would remember her and she could do crafts with him as well.” Owen’s experience at CHEO is only one among thousands, and the ongoing CHEO lottery sales are meant to drum up funds for research and resources to further help the hospital treat and save children. Walking through the CHEO dream home is another kind of miracle altogether: it’s the culmination of an entire community coming together for a good cause, said Connie Lebrun, a corporate development officer at CHEO. She was responsible for soliciting and facilitating the many trades, products, and donations that make the dream home possible. “This year we’re up 65 per cent in terms of our trades and suppliers helping with the home,” Lebrun said, explaining that about 115 companies, most of them local, have contributed.

“I think over the years everyone’s realized that it’s so important and so fortunate that we have CHEO in our backyard. You’ll always hear from the donors that someone’s been touched by CHEO, or their neighbour has. It’s a small enough community to make it feel like family, and people want to give back.” The exquisite 4,200 square foot Manotick house, located off First Line road, includes a stunning kitchen, an enormous master bedroom, three fantastically decorated children’s bedrooms, and four and a half bathrooms. The basement includes a home theatre, a full bar, a home gym and a sauna. The extensive yard has been fully landscaped and includes a gazebo and a complete set of patio furniture. The lottery tickets are $100 each, and the deadline to buy is Friday, Dec 17. Nearly 5,000 prizes, including the dream home worth nearly $1.6 million, are available with 1 in 14 odds of winning. For more information or to order a ticket, visit www.dreamofalifetime.ca.

Life got a little brighter for children undergoing treatment at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario on Dec. 2 with the arrival of the latest video gaming gadget, the Kinect for Microsoft’s Xbox 360. To mark the fifth anniversary of the Child Life Interactive Computers for Kids (CLICK) program, Microsoft Canada announced the donation of more than 200 Kinect devices to 14 hospitals across Canada, which allow players to use their body and voice to play games. The CLICK program provides patients access to technology, helping to provide a sense of normalcy for the children while at the hospital. It allows them to stay in touch with family and friends, to explore the Internet or keep up with school work. “I think kids continue to be kids while they’re in hospital,”

Niall Barron, 18, shows 13-year-old Tyler Preston, right, the ropes while the pair play the game Joyride using the Kinect motion capture device for the Xbox 360 at CHEO on Dec. 2 while Laureen Harper, 2nd left, and Gavin Thompson, director of citizenship for Microsoft, look on. said Maureen Jones, Child Life specialist at CHEO. “The fact that they can (use technology) to keep up with their friends while they’re here and continue to increase their level of proficiency with the gaming is a big thing.” Video games provide a distraction for children undergoing sometimes difficult treatments at the hospital and can serve as a

therapy enhancer, Jones said. “Kids can actually utilize (the games) to focus away from any pain from treatment, and really allows the treatments to go a little easier.” The donation was an expansion of the CLICK program, a partnership between Microsoft and Children’s Miracle Network hospitals.

HOLIDAY SURVIVAL TIPS

MARGARET’S QUICK DECORATING TIPS • When decorating our home, my natural instinct is to stick to a dedicated theme, usually defined by a particular colour or materials or both. The holiday season is no exception.

• Thanks to post-Christmas sales from years gone by, there is a “cobweb” of transparent shopping bags hanging from the joists in our basement. Each bag is filled with ribbon, bows, balls or decorations of a particular colour.

• Candles of this year’s colour theme join my growing array of decorative resources.

Margaret Dickenson, who for 28 years accompanied her Foreign Service spouse to 8 fascinating countries, is a multi-international award winning cookbook author, recipe/menu developer and TV host.

• With resources assembled, I realize that I might have to make several dozen bows if this year’s colour theme is a new initiative. Oh dear, that will add a couple of extra hours to my time-sensitive agenda!

• Our holiday theme always begins by choosing balls and matching ribbon of a non-traditional colour—purple with gold, blue with silver, copper with gold, old rose, metallic red, burgundy, pistachio and sage green.

• Out come the indoor and outdoor wreaths.

About Margaret

• Larry sets up the tree and will decorate it while I take care of the rest. I allow him 30 bows and so many dozens of balls plus lights to do the tree. From then on, everything else belongs to me! • I then turn to the dining room table. Once decorated, all other resources may be used as desired. • Remaining balls are attached to wreaths and spilled into chosen containers—baskets, clear tall vases, decorative sleighs, drums, etc. • Bows make our holiday decor “pop”! They are attached to wreaths, garlands on the staircase, sconces, baskets, decorative items of all kinds. • Finally, the wreaths are thoughtfully and affectionately hung in strategic locations—on doors (inside and outside), on garden lamp posts and so on. • Wow! Yes, we made it! The decorations are up in record time. • This is what Larry and I do. You may adopt/adapt some of our tips; however, do what suits you.

From our home to yours, Happy Holidays!

Margaret’s latest cookbook, “Margaret’s Table – Easy Cooking & Inspiring Entertaining”, has won 4 major international awards. During the Frankfurt Book Fair, it was recognized as the “Best of the Best Cookbook in the world in the past 12 years” in the entertaining category. In September 2010, Ottawa Life Magazine announced “The Tenth Annual TOP Fifty People in the Capital”. In saluting Margaret as one of the top 50, the magazine referred to her as “Ottawa’s Julia”. In 2009, Margaret was named “Culinarian of the Year” by the Cordon d’Or International Culinary Awards. This reflected her remarkable successes, career development, contributions to charity and community activities. In addition, Margaret repeatedly wins international culinary competitions for her innovative recipes, creative menus and food styling. For more about Margaret visit margaretstable.ca

A 16 year-old who was shot and tossed on a Booth Street sidewalk in broad daylight has been identified as Notre Dame High School student Yazdan Ghiasvand Ghiasi. “We do know he was an assistant coach of his wrestling team, an outgoing person and a good student who was in grade 11,” said Mardi de Kemp of the Ottawa Catholic School Board. “The death did not occur at the school and doesn’t appear to be school-related.” The day after the shooting, counselling was available to Notre Dame students and family. In a media release, the school board added that crisis counsellors and chaplaincy support would be available at the school throughout this week. In the coming weeks, there will be a prayer service or memorial for Ghiasvand Ghiasi. “The school is also in touch with Yazdan’s family and is offering them support,” said de Kemp. Ottawa police have made two arrests in connection with the shooting. A family friend answered a phone call made to the family. He said the family was out of the house and had asked him to check up on the home. “I just got here, I haven’t seen them,” said the family friend, who didn’t identify himself. “I can’t say much. I’m sorry.” -- With files from Eddie Rwema

Champlain LHIN adds ‘assisted living’ spaces across the region laurie.matheson@metroland.com

As part of its Aging at Home strategy, the Champlain LHIN has expanded its assisted living program, which helps older residents live independently and with more dignity in their own homes.

Over the next several months, 10 new assisted living projects will be launched in the region, resulting in 545 new assisted-living spaces for high-risk seniors. Assisted living services include 24-hour on-call response, personal support, homemaking, and care coordination. “The assisted living servic-

es will be provided to seniors where they live – in their own homes, apartments, subsidized housing, condos, and townhouses – so they are spaces and not beds,” said Chantale LeClerc, senior director planning, integration and community engagement with Champlain LHIN. “The only exception is 50 units in a building on Murray Street in the Byward Market. The rest of the spaces will accommodate seniors living in Centretown, Alta Vista area, Ottawa East, Vanier, Orleans, Ottawa West. We have not been able to make the services available in Nepean or Barrhaven yet.” Funding for the new projects is roughly $9.4 million annually. A significant portion of the spaces will be provided to highrisk seniors currently in hospital who need support to return safely to their homes. One of the many aims of the program is to relieve pressures on hospitals. “The assisted living services include help with every day activities such as bathing, dressing, grooming, shopping, meal preparation, housekeeping, banking, home maintenance, etc.,” LeClerc said.

The services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Services also include care coordination (linking seniors with other complementary services they need to stay at home) and ensuring an overall plan of care is monitored and adjusted accordingly.

‘The assisted living services will be provided to seniors where they live – in their own homes, apartments, subsidized housing, condos, and townhouses – so they are spaces and not beds.’ Chantale LeClerc, Champlain LHIN “For the time being, as these services start ramping up in December, we will be working with hospitals to identify seniors who no longer need acute

hospital care and could go home with these services as well as community agencies who may already be caring for a senior who is at very high risk of becoming hospitalized if they don’t receive this type of care,” noted LeClerc. The central point of intake is the Community Care Access Centre. In the future, they will publicize the availability of these services to the broader community. People will have to apply through the CCAC. “The Ontario government, in partnership with the LHINs, is leading the way in innovation by expanding communitybased health services for an aging population,” says Jim Brownell, MPP for StormontDundas-South Glengarry. “The new assisted-living programs provide seniors with the type of assistance they both want and require.” The projects are located across the Champlain region, including Almonte, Carleton Place, Cornwall, Iroquois, Killaloe, Ottawa and Renfrew. Services are delivered by community support agencies. The Champlain Community Care Access Centre is also a partner.

Questions still remain From BERM on page 1 “There were a lot of questions and they were quite clearly more against the project,” he said. McWhinnie added that he gets the impression the RVCA hasn’t moved past the information-gathering stage. “It was clear that the RVCA isn’t doing too much on it in terms of starting the engineering work and design,” he said. Reid was at the meeting on behalf of the RVCA and said he was planning to return at the end of February with a report on the project. First, the RVCA will be looking into administrative matters to update and review the agreements the authority has with the city of Ottawa. The authority will also be looking at agreements with engineers as well as putting together a package with all the background information on the berm project. Most of the package will come from information that’s been accumulated over the years, but Reid said it would also be worth taking note of the comments made at the meeting. For example, he said there were questions raised about building a flood control barrier. He said the RVCA is required to consider all the alternatives to a project when they conduct an environmental assessment. “The undertaking here is to build a

flood control barrier or some version of a barrier,” said Reid. “But there are other ways of dealing with flood risk that wouldn’t involve building a flood control barrier.” Matilde Hahn, a Britannia Village resident who has supported the berm project said she wants to see the RVCA involved in the flood proofing initiative and take ownership of it. She said she believes the city is aware of the public risk, but some people living along the waterfront don’t understand how damaging a flood could be. “I think people on the waterfront don’t perceive the risk, period,” she said. “But there’s nothing to tell them it’s not risky. The reality is because there are so many steps, it’s harder to get something going than to stop it” Taylor has made it known that he isn’t choosing sides in this issue – he just wants to get the facts. He said when the RVCA comes back with more information at the end of February, it will help fill in the gaps for both residents and himself. “I’m looking forward to working with Mr. Reid well before February to make sure we can identify what these information gaps are, and I can get fully up Handout to speed on the extensive background of this project,” said Taylor. “We have A handout map shows the area of Britannia Village often affected by high water levels to make sure we have the right solution and is the subject of a plan that could see a protective berm constructed to prevent futhat addresses all the various interests.” ture flooding.

East Nepean to host Canadian Little League Championships Winner will play in Williamsport in 2015 DANIEL NUGENT-BOWMAN daniel.bowman@metroland.com

Canada’s best mini sluggers will be coming to Ottawa for the first time in 2015. East Nepean Little League has secured the city’s first major-division Canadian Little League Championships for August 2015. The major division consists of 11-and-12-yearolds, and the winner of the Ottawa event will earn a berth in the Little League World Series – the famous Williamsport, Pa tournament. Tournament games will be played at South Nepean Park’s Eagles Nest – the organization’s home field on Longfields Drive in Barrhaven. As hosts, East Nepean will receive an automatic entry along with winners of the British Columbia, Prairies, Ontario, Quebec, and Atlantic divisions. The championships will be played during the organization’s 60th-anniversary season. “We’ve proven that we can put on a good show,” East Nepean Little League president Bruce Campbell said, noting the organization’s success running past provincial and national junior and senior tournaments. “We’ve also shown that we can be competitive. To be a host, you want to be part of the group. “No doubt, that will be a big part of our development moving forward. We want to be competitive and push the teams coming in here to be at their very best to come out a winner.” The decision was reached during a during the

Ontario division’s annual general meeting in Thunder Bay in October. Since division gets to host the Canadian championships every five years, East Nepean defeated Oakville for the right to host the Ontario event. Ancaster, a suburb of Hamilton, hosted the event this year. While the championships will cost the organization $15,000 to run because of a banquet, meals, and souvenirs for the players, plus park maintenance, Campbell said East Nepean will hopefully reap bigger rewards in the future. In order to host the tournament, the Eagles Nest will require a two-storey media building for scorekeeping and public-address announcements.

“That’s going to be part of my legacy: to build a park to call a home. This will be a perfect set up. You’ve got the ball diamonds and then all the little amenities and adding the media building would finish it.” Having started as the Cityview Little League in 1956 – encompassing just Nepean households in the Baseline and Merivale roads and Meadowlands Drive areas – Campbell has seen the organization grow mightily to the point where in now includes families in Barrhaven and Manotick. Currently there are over 600 boys and girls from age four to 18 playing in the East Nepean Little League. The organization will make a formal announcement on May 2.

United Way Campaign getting closer to their 2010 goal

The United Way has raised $31.4 million to date on their 2010 fundraising campaign. The campaign, which started on Sept. 23, surpassed last year’s total by $700,000 and as the campaign enters the final leg of their fundraising, Cassie Doyle, United Way’s Campaign Chair believes they could raise more than the goal the $33 million dollar goal they set at the beginning of the campaign. “It’s not over yet,” Doyle said. The campaign celebrated and thanked their 80 loaned helpers from government offices and businesses across the city. They helped run the campaign for the first four months, to get the campaign on its feet. Most of the loaned representatives last day working for the campaign were Dec 3, 2010 and United Way thanked them at their achievement night event. A few will remain on for the next few months as well the regular staff at United Way will maintain the campaign. “It is such a huge job, we need as many people as we can get,” There are still 1,800 campaigns continuing in the city and Doyle said some more may even start in the next few weeks. The money raised will go out to non-profit organizations in the community and the amount will be decided by the applications and proposals sent to the United Way throughout the year.

Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder anticipates that the improvements will cost about $250,000, which the city plans to help support along with sponsorships. East Nepean will also require its own storage space for maintenance supplies, which would allow the organization to save money from having to rent space throughout the city. Campbell said that money could be reinvested in the program like it did this summer with the construction of a batting cage and a patio. “One of the reasons why we went and bid on it is we wanted to develop our home at the Eagles Nest,” Campbell said of the two diamonds that opened in 2000.
