EMC news - The 14th annual Kanata Chamber of Commerce People’s Choice Business Awards honoured the best and brightest businesses in Kanata, Goulbourn and West Carleton at the Brookstreet Hotel on Thursday, Feb. 21. “When we become adults we rarely get those gold stars we covet as youth,” said chamber president Greg Weatherdon. “Tonight, we celebrate your excellence.” The number of votes was unprecedented this year with 18,500 cast, said Rosemary Leu, executive director of the chamber. “It truly is the people’s choice awards,” she said. “It is about the fantastic Ottawa west community we are all a part of … It’s a celebration of excellence. That’s what we’re here for.” Twenty-seven awards were presented to those voted mostdeserving by the public.

“As a committee, we couldn’t keep up,” said Rick Chase, chair of the awards organizing committee. This year, 281 companies, non-profits and individuals were nominated for an award in 11 categories in the three geographic regions – Kanata, Goulbourn and West Carleton – represented by the chamber. “Your patrons, your clients … are recognizing you,” said Chase, adding a nomination recognizes and validates the work done by businesses.

The Kanata Food Cupboard took home the award for Community Support/Non Profit Organization of the Year in Kanata. “We get a tremendous amount of support from businesses and the city,” said board member Jenna Sudds as she and client co-ordinator Karen Waters accepted the award. See KANATA, page 3

EMC news - The Kanata Beaverbrook Community Association has filed an appeal against the city’s decision

to rezone for a seven-storey building at 2 The Parkway, but the group might not back it up with a fight. The community association was set to discuss whether to move forward with the appeal

at its annual general meeting on Feb. 27. There is a chance the association might elect a new slate of board members and they might not want to spend the time and money to fight the city’s decision to re-

zone for a seven-storey building on that site. However, the deadline to be able to appeal the decision to the Ontario Municipal Board passed a week before the community association’s meeting, so the group filed an appeal so it could keep that option open for the membership to pursue if it wishes. “We wanted to share with the membership the stats and

give them an opportunity to choose to move forward,” said Gary Sealey, current president of the association. The community association gathered a focus group of about 45 people representing a cross section of the association’s membership on Feb. 13 to discuss the situation and future options.

This graphic shows the seven-storey building developer Morley-Hoppner received approval for at 2 The Parkway. The local community association filed an appeal to the province, but that appeal might be dropped after a Feb. 27 meeting determining the future of the community association.

Drop OMB appeal: Wilkinson Continued from page 1

The developer, MorleyHoppner, originally proposed a 16-storey condo building on the site of the former Canada Post building in 2011. After several changes, the city’s planning committee eventually approved zoning

for a seven storey, 95-unit building on the site, over the objections of Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson, who tried to have it reduced to five storeys. Many Beaverbrook residents were vocally opposed to the development, saying the size and density of the

based on its 10-storey application. The developer agreed to withdraw that appeal if the city approved its alternate seven-storey proposal – if there were no other competing appeals. Since the community association now has an appeal in, the Morley-Hoppner appeal is still in play. “There is a lot of opposition to going ahead with the appeal, even within the community association,” Wilkinson said. “Simply because we’ve really probably gotten as much as we can on that one ... All the indications we’ve had – including from our own planners and the ones (the community association has) hired – is that an appeal would likely be unsuccessful.” Wilkinson said she would like to see the community association drop the appeal and focus on working in partnership with Morley-Hoppner to make improvements to the building’s design, landscaping and transportation issues. “If the developer spends hundreds of thousands of dollars on (an OMB) hearing, that (money) is going to come out of the building,” Wilkinson said. “So let’s put that money into the building.” Sealey was reluctant to say whether he intended to return as president of the community association, but he said he would be “happy to see a rotation” of the executive. He said he would leave those recommendations up to the community association’s nomination committee.

Kathleen Ellis, Daniel Alfredsson win Citizen of the Year Kanata Chamber business awards honour both for community service Jessica Cunha

jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - This year, two dedicated and hard-working community members won the Citizen of the Year award at the Kanata Chamber of Commerce 14th annual People’s Choice Business Awards. “This year, we will do things a little differently,” said Greg Weatherdon, president of the chamber, before the awards were handed out. “When evaluating the contribution to our community from each of the nominees, it became clear that with such differing candidates, it would not be possible to bestow just one award.”

With such differing candidates, it would not be possible to bestow just one award. GREG WEATHERDON PRESIDENT, KANATA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

Kanata’s Kathleen Ellis, member and current treasurer of the Rotary Club of Ottawa Kanata Sunrise, and Carp’s Daniel Alfredsson, captain of the Ottawa Senators, shared the honour, which has been given to only one nominee in the past. Ellis, who joined the rotary club in 1999, thanked her friends, family and rotary club members for their support along the way.

“I had a tremendous amount of help,” she said. “The motto is service above self … the community becomes what we put into the community (and) we live in the greatest community in the world. “We live in a caring, loving community.” Ellis, who has volunteered her time to a number of organizations and non-profits, was described as “exceptional, devoted and a thankyou angel,” said emcee and television broadcaster Kurt Stoodley of the testimonials received by the chamber in favour of Ellis. “The dedication of Kathleen Ellis is extraordinary, and her variety of endeavours is incredible,” he said. Ellis has volunteered for the following organizations: • The Majorettes • OPP community police office • March Kanata Skating Club • Heart and stroke, cancer, and kidney foundations • United Way • Rotary Club of Ottawa Kanata Sunrise • Sens Foundation • Rogers House • Knit-wits “In 2004, Kathleen founded Knit-wits,” said Stoodley. “Since then this dedicated group has knitted teddy bear sweaters for the Sens Foundation, toques for newborn babies at the QCH, and blankets and quilts for seniors at nursing residences, toques and mitts donated to CityKidz Foundation and the Mission, and blankets and baby clothes

DANIEL ALFREDSSON to the Salvation Army.” Knit-wits also collects toys for Toy Mountain and nonperishables for the Kanata Food Cupboard. “Kathleen’s dedication to helping others has touched the lives of many in our community,” said Stoodley. “Her personal belief is that ‘You always get back more than you give,’ and she has lived by that.” ‘SO MUCH MORE THAN NUMBER 11’

The pride of the Ottawa Senators club, long-time captain Daniel Alfredsson, was named co-winner of the Citizen of the Year. The franchise player couldn’t make the event to hear kind words from the presenters about giving his limited time “generously” to area causes as his team was busy beating the New York Rangers 3-2 in a shootout. Alfredsson was called an “invaluable part of this community” and “so much more than number 11 for the Ottawa Senators.” Club spokesman David Chadala shared a message from Alfredsson as he accepted the award on the hockey

Alfredsson has volunteered his time for numerous organizations, appearing in a video supporting You Can Play, a campaign dedicated to fighting homophobia in sports. He is also associated with You Know Who I Am, a Royal Ottawa Foundation campaign to dispel the stigma surrounding mental health, an issue that has touched his family. Alfredsson has won an Olympic gold medal for Swe-

den; made the NHL all-rookie team in 1996; played in six all-star games; was named top penalty-killer in 2008; and took home the King Clancy Memorial Trophy last year. “Daniel’s leadership role has earned him the respect of his team players and the admiration of his fans,” said Stoodley. “He is an outstanding role model and an invaluable part of our community.” The Citizen of the Year award recognizes people who have made a significant contribution to their community in some exceptional manor, such as outstanding commu-

nity service, charitable work or heroism. The third Citizen of the Year finalist was John Curry, editor of the KourierStandard’s sister paper the Stittsville News. Curry, who won the award in 2009, was honoured with a plaque for his contributions to the Goulbourn community. The gala, held at the Brookstreet Hotel on Thursday, Feb. 21, honoured the best and brightest businesses in Kanata, Goulbourn and West Carleton. With files from Derek Dunn

Metroland editor among finalists for Citizen of Year Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

Curry also edited and produced the Sunday bulletin for Holy Spirit Catholic parish every Sunday, and chaired the committee which compiled the 150-year-history of Catholic education in Ottawa. He served on the board of directors of Friends of Hospice Ottawa from 2008 to December 2012, as well as serving on various committees associated with community groups or projects. Curry was impressed with this year’s ceremony, which had a record participation rate with 18,500 votes cast. Always quick to bringing the conversation back to community, he commended the Kanata Chamber of Commerce for a worthy event. “These awards are really a celebration of community,” said the Metroland Media employee. “That’s all I’ve tried to do with being in community newspapers.”

EMC news - Among three finalists for Citizen of the Year at the 2013 Kanata Chamber of Commerce gala last Thursday night was the editor of the Kourier-Standard’s sister newspaper in Stittsville. John Curry, editor of the Stittsville News since 1975, was among the prestigious award’s seven nominees. In the Brookstreet Hotel banquet hall it was announced that Curry, along with NHL player Daniel Alfredsson and Rotary Club of Ottawa Kanata Sunrise member Kathleen Ellis, were finalists. “That was a tremendous honour – to be on that list,” Curry said after the award was split between Alfredsson and Ellis. “To be one of the finalists, you can’t put that kind of honour into words.” Curry was quick to add with

a laugh that he “just missed out” on playing an NHL allstar game with the superstar captain of the Ottawa Senators who lives near March Road and Huntmar Drive. The Stittsville resident has contributed to his community in many ways. He has held elected office for 25 years; first as a commissioner and then chair of the Goulbourn Hydro Electric Commission and then as the Ottawa Catholic School Board trustee from 2000 to the present. He was a member of the local architectural conservation advisory committee, chair of the Goulbourn Sports Wall of Fame committee, and a member of the Goulbourn Museum committee. He was also the inaugural chair of the parish council of Holy Spirit Church in Stittsville, and even wrote a book on the history of Richmond (Richmond on the Jock) in 1993.

Outlet shopping centre to be built near Scotiabank Place Construction of U.S.-style mall gets thumbs up from planning committee laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - A proposal for a new U.S.-style outlet mall near Scotiabank Place was a slam dunk for the city’s planning committee on Feb. 26. The mall would open in 2015 and be located on a vacant 25-hectare site at 333 Huntmar Dr., south of the future Campeau Road extension (planned for this year), north of Highway 417 and west of Huntmar Drive. The mall itself would be 37,160 square metres and include a hotel and restaurants. Similar to the style of outlet mall that the proponent, Tanger Outlet Centers, Inc. operates in the United States, the Ottawa outlet would contain pedestrianoriented private streets lined with storefronts “to create the ambiance of an outdoor pedestrian mall,” according to the planning report. The buildings would feature “structural elements” to protect shoppers from bad weather. The mall would be two parts: retail outlets would be situated on the north section of the site, while a hotel and restaurant-themed section would be located south of Feedmill Creek. The plan still needs city council’s final approval. Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson has said outlets are “an alternative type of shopping that a lot of people like.” The new mall has the potential to keep people shopping in Canada, she said, since many people in the area already travel to the United States to shop at similar outlet malls. “It will probably save some people in fuel,” she said, “And it will keep jobs on Canadian soil.” She couldn’t say which stores were planned for the mall, but she said it will include a mix of Canadian and U.S. high-end retail. Wilkinson said RioCan looked all over Ottawa before choosing the Kanata West location, but the Huntmar site is best situated to capture shoppers from both the city and the surrounding Ottawa Valley. Its proximity to Scotiabank Place will also be beneficial, Wilkinson said, because people could come and shop in the afternoon before taking in a hockey game or a concert in the evening. The plans include a roundabout for vehicle traffic entering the mall at Huntmar and Campeau. Including that roundabout was key for Wilkinson, who was the chairwoman of the transportation committee until recently. The roundabout will be critical for traffic flow, she said. A 1,400-unit subdivision is developing immediately east of the proposed outlet.

The proposal also include plans for a previously identified multi-use pathway along the creek that would link into citywide paths. Many of the public comments the city received questioned the development’s impact on the creek and the natural environment. In response, city staff wrote: “The protection of the Feedmill Creek corridor is the centrepiece of this subdivision, where the natural heritage system and functions will be preserved to tie this site to nature. Opportunities to enhance the natural corridor and educate the public on natural habitat in this area will be examined through the site plan control process associated with this development.” The land had already been set aside as a development reserve zone. The city made a tweak to the zoning to allow “architectural towers”

EDITORIAL

Voters deserve chance to weigh in on Wynne

P

remier Kathleen Wynne came to town last week, offering Ottawans their first chance to take the measure of Ontario’s new leader. That first impression may be important, as the province may very well have an election on its hands this spring, something that should be embraced, albeit grudgingly, by the electorate. Why embraced? It comes down to the fact Wynne is looking to take Ontario in

a fundamentally different direction from the one we were following under Dalton McGuinty, despite the claims made by Tim Hudak and the Progressive Conservatives to the contrary. That fact alone means voters need the opportunity to approve a new mandate. McGuinty, while he focused on deficit reduction to a certain extent following his 2011 election victory, spent much time looking to implement and expand programs

such as full-day kindergarten. He will also be remembered as the premier who introduced the feed-in tariff program, harmonized the provincial sales tax and gave a 30 per cent rebate to postsecondary students. He was a premier focused on programs and ways the province could help out its citizens. Wynne, based on the speech from the throne delivered on Feb. 19, is looking to focus the province’s efforts on “fiscal responsibil-

ity, economic growth and increased employment.” In practice, this doesn’t need to be a drastic departure from what came before: FIT was designed to boost the economy, helping students can lead to more jobs and freezing teachers salaries is one way of taking fiscal responsibility. But the premier undoubtedly brings her own ideas to her new office and those ideas deserve to be vetted by voters, who should have the

chance to compare Wynne’s plan with those being offered by both the PCs and the New Democratic Party. We’ll have a much better idea of what the Liberals are all about under Wynne in the coming weeks when the budget is presented at Queen’s Park. It should provide a detailed account of how her government plans to reach its new goals. Andrea Horwath’s NDP has pledged to support the minority Liberals on the speech from the throne, so

Wynne will survive to table the budget. It’s better that we head to the polls sooner than later, as the province is facing a number of challenges that really can’t wait to be addressed: the decline of manufacturing and the transition of the wider economy, deteriorating infrastructure, rising health care costs, all under the shadow of a massive deficit and ballooning debt. It would be much better for voters to choose from among the latest visions for Ontario’s future, rather than be stuck with a new path chosen by Liberal party faithful.

COLUMN

Prime downtown property CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

T

hose were wonderful scandals coming out of the Senate, with people allegedly claiming expenses they didn’t deserve because they didn’t live where they said they did, and so on. For a while, there was the faint hope that the thing would finally be abolished, but for various reasons too constitutional to mention, that is very unlikely to happen. Too bad, as it would free up a beautiful piece of real estate in the heart of downtown. Still, it is pleasant, although maybe not too realistic, to consider alternate uses for the Senate chamber, once the Senators have made their deliberate move to the exit. Many years ago I proposed in print that the Senate chamber would make an excellent basketball court. The dimensions are about right, there is parking nearby, plenty of security and the visitors’ gallery has lots of good seats. You might ask, why basketball, when hockey is our national sport? That’s a good question. The difficulty is that the dimensions of a hockey rink are too large for the space available. Further, the taxpayer might balk at installing ice-making machinery in Centre Block. Finally, where would they put the Zamboni? For these reasons, basketball made more sense. However, the proposal was somehow not seized upon by public officials. Also there was a complete lack of public excitement and eventually, Scotiabank Place was built. Too bad, because it would have made a nice basketball court and years of embarrassing scandal could have been avoided. So we move on. What other uses could be made of the space now occupied by the Senate?

Well, what about the National Portrait Gallery? You’ll remember that it was once intended to move into the old United States embassy building across from Parliament Hill, then the government changed and the museum faded from sight. We could use a good portrait gallery. The Senate would have lots of space for it, because remember there is more to the Senate than just the chamber. Once the Senate is abolished, all those senators’ offices will be vacant, along with the Senate committee rooms and the place where the senators store their overcoats and shuffleboard equipment. Acres and acres of portraits could go in there. Some of them could even be of senators. The ones who live in Ottawa should not be hard to find to take their pictures. Even some ones who don’t officially live in Ottawa might, unaccountably, be close by. For the generations yet unborn, we would want a permanent photographic record of those who graced the institution and explaination of what they did. Some might oppose putting the Portrait Gallery in the Senate on the grounds that our need for historical portraiture will be covered in the conversion of the Museum of Civilization to the Canadian Museum of History. So other possible uses need to be explored. The suggestion that the Senate be turned into a downtown casino will not be dignified with a reply. However, there is nothing to stop the Senate from becoming what most of Canada is becoming – a condominium. Some of those offices suites could make nice apartments, once they are thoroughly cleaned to get rid of the smell of pork. The Senate chamber could be made into a party room, instead of a political party room. The idea certainly has merit, since having more people live downtown has long been one of the city’s goals. It could help put more people onto Sparks Street, as the condo owners emerge from Parliament Hill in search of somewhere to party, or at least get a sausage. The big lawn would be an attraction, the view is very nice. All that needs to be done is to get the neighbours in the House of Commons to keep it down.

to sleep and keeping them there. Most evenings our kids have zero screen time, but we’re far from the norm. Statistics suggest that up to half of children in the United States have TV sets in their bedrooms – nevermind those that are playing with smartphones, portable video game consoles and tablets in their beds. Fresh air and exercise are key elements to good sleep. We like the kids to run around for at least an hour in the late afternoon. Too much indoor time and they have a lot more trouble

settling. Finally, I find the kids don’t fall asleep unless it’s been at least two hours since their evening meal. This last “rule” is probably the most difficult for working families to implement. Admittedly, we eat supper at 5:30 p.m. daily – at least that’s the goal. If we miss the mark, it’s guaranteed to be a regular party at bedtime, with sleep the last thing on their minds. If I watch the clock – which I frequently do – I note they nod off precisely at that two hour mark. There are many in my social and family circles that consider me a fanatic when it comes to good sleep. But the fact is, getting the kids to bed at the same time each day is not only good for their health, it’s good for mine too. If I can count on them bedding down

How can you possibly get the kids to go to sleep that early? In my opinion, sleeping is the kids’ responsibilities. My job is to exercise them, feed them, read with them and yell lights out in my serious mom voice when the clock strikes half-past seven. As a recent feature in the Globe and Mail highlighted, there is much evidence to suggest sleep is imperative to good health. Despite this, reports Erin Anderssen, a combination of urbanization, technological interruptions and the glorification of busy seem to have relegated a good night’s sleep to the sidelines. And while many of us make the connection between nutritious food, exercise and good health, sleep doesn’t often find its way into the same conversation. Anderssen cites a number of studies that link lack of sleep to everything from obesity to depression to attention deficit disorder. And of course, the negative effects of sleep deprivation have also been well documented elsewhere. But if one is in the habit of getting only fragmented and irregular sleep, how can you make a change? I’m not a health expert,

CONTRACT

The church signed a 20-year contract with Hydro Ottawa, which will pay the church for the power it generates.

Toft said the initial cost of purchasing and installing the panels will be paid off within six years and the “profit from then on is profit for the church,” said Toft. Glen Cairn United’s expected revenue is more than $6,700 a year from the energy it produces.

“With a 20-year contract, they’re going to be producing income as well as green power,” said Toft. Moe Wright, chair of Glen Cairn United’s property committee, said Toft did great work. “John really carried the whole project,” said Wright.

A liveable Kanata is active and green, residents say Zoning certainty essential to people at west-end Official Plan consultation Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Creating active, green communities is as much of a concern in Kanata as it is for neighbourhoods in the urban centre. That was the message during a consultation on the city’s Liveable Ottawa inititiave held at the Mlacak Centre on Feb. 25. The meeting, held jointly by Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson and the Federation of Citizens Associations, is the first in a series of community-based meetings to seek feedback on how to shape Ottawa’s master policies in order to ensure the city develops sustainably for the next 17 years. Other community-specific consultations are in the works, with no firm plans as of yet. Similar to feedback gathered during initial sessions held at city hall, Kanata residents were adamant that pedestrian and cyclist-friendly communities with lots of green space would be essential to maintain and improve on for Kanata’s future. And there is lots of room for improvement, according to

approximately 50 people who participated in group discussions on Feb. 25. Instead of trying to build physically separated bicycle lanes downtown, like the controversial lane on Laurier Avenue, a couple of participants suggested a route like March Road would be perfect for segregated lanes. The vehicular traffic moves fast, so many cyclists are intimidated to use the existing painted lanes. But there are few intersections or driveways along the route and no on-street parking to complicate matters, as there is with the downtown route. Other participants wanted to see more cycling pathways, rather than bike lanes – particularly paths that connect with employment areas like the technology park. While cycling was a point of discussion for several groups, by far the major theme of the evening was zoning certainty. Both residents and developers at the session begged the city to use this opportunity to create a realistic Official Plan and ensure it can be enforced through zoning, which outlines the specifics of what can be built on a site and what kinds of uses are allowed

there, whether it is residential, commercial, institutional or other uses. “We need to put meat on the Official Plan,” said Chris Teron, a local developer and son of Bill Teron, a planner known as the “Father of Kanata.” Chris said predictability is even more important to developers than residents – developers want to know what they will be allowed to build on their properties and avoid spending large amounts of time and money seeking rezonings or fighting Ontario Municipal Board appeals brought on from local community groups. That was the case for a seven-storey condo building at 2 The Parkway in Beaverbrook. That rezoning controversy was mentioned frequently during the Official Plan consultation and everyone agreed it is the type of thing the city should work to avoid in the future. Developer Morley-Hoppner had originally proposed a 16storey tower on the former post office site, but the Kanata Beaverbrook Community Association argued the land should be kept for institutional use, and that high-density development like the condo building would be better suited to the nearby Kanata Town Centre. The association has filed an appeal to the OMB. “I think that’s what has galvanized this community,”

Chris said. “We can’t have developers asking for something outrageous (as a way) to set up negotiations.” “I think we’re all on the same wavelength with this problem,” replied Marjorie Edwards of the March Rural Community Association. It’s an issue that’s not lost on the officials at city hall. Planning committee chairman Coun. Peter Hume has committed to ensuring new zoning in the Official Plan provides certainty for residents and developers. Hume has repeatedly insisted that the review will result in a zoning bylaw that matches and implements the policies outlined in the Official Plan. “Providing certainty for the community and the development industry is a theme you’ve heard me talking about a lot in the past year,” Hume said. “Our refreshed Official Plan will be more prescriptive than ever before in terms of where the vision for height and density is in this city. “(Planning manager John) Moser and his staff are committed to bringing forward the necessary zoning bylaws in 2014 that will implement these height permissions such that there is absolute certainty for all and fewer disparities between the Official Plan and the zoning bylaw.” In addition to providing more certainty, some residents,

Bike lanes, similar to the segregated paths on Laurier Avenue, are a topic of interest for many Kanata residents at a Liveable Ottawa consultation on Feb. 25. including Beata Myhill, said the city needs to have a more cohesive planning process so that things like transit and land-use planning align. Using a possible future Transitway extension on March Road as justification for approving intensified development “gives no consideration to the reality of the community,” Myhill said. Participants at the Kanata

consultation were also interested in seeing the city evaluate whether it is achieving the goals set out in the Official Plan. The idea of a report card outlining things like how many times the city had to rezone properties was a popular one among participants. Undertaking community design plans for all Ottawa neighbourhoods was also suggested.

Spring colours help take chill off winter

A

lthough Father kept telling Mother there was a lot of winter left, she refused to believe him. She was sure she saw a robin. Father said it was a blackbird. I was never sure if Mother hated the winter because we were locked in for weeks, only venturing as far as church and Briscoe’s General Store, with trips into Renfrew – only if it was necessary – or because she remembered milder weather this time of year in her beloved New York. But by the time February started to wane, Mother’s patience with the snow, the bitterly cold nights huddled together in the drafty kitchen to keep warm and the frostcovered windows all took their toll on Mother’s usually happy mood. Even though the days were getting longer, the evenings stretched out before her and I could tell she ached for spring and warm nights, when she could open the windows and feel the cool country air coming in. One Friday evening she announced that even if the snow came down in buckets, she was going into Renfrew in the morning and yes, I could go with her. The old Model T had long since been up on

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories purse bulged with coins from her sales. She seemed to know exactly what she was looking for and we headed to the back of the store, pausing for a few seconds on the big iron grate in the middle of the store where heat from the coal furnace puffed up warm air. Here was where the bolts of materials were stored, on long shelves, like books in a library. Mother said she was there to look at the Dan River cottons. The sales clerk pulled the first pile down off the shelf and Mother asked if she wouldn’t mind bringing down the pile next to it. I knew exactly what she was looking for. This pile had several bolts of Dan River plaids in glorious mauve and pink colours, the colours of spring. Mother lifted one bolt off the pile and put it to her nose. She inhaled as if she was smelling a bouquet of roses. “It’s 19 cents a yard this week,” the sales clerk said, and I knew she was wonder-

blocks in the drive shed, so Queenie would be hitched to the cutter for the 20 kilometre trip into town. Mother’s peddling eggs, butter and chickens waned during the winter, but that day, under piles of blankets, she was prepared to visit her warm-weather customers so that she could have what was called “egg money” back then, because there were things she needed. She had written out a list and we dressed like mummies, with hot bricks at our feet. We set out, just Mother and me, for the long cold trip into Renfrew. Queenie’s breath seemed to freeze in the air and the cutter bit deep into the snow along Northcote Side Road, but the fur rug, wrapped tight to our chins, kept us warm. Mother was in much better spirits than she had been all week, for which I was grateful. We headed right for Walker’s Store after Mother got rid of the chickens, butter and eggs, and her little change

We left the store with four pieces of Dan River cotton all in the palest of colours, and even though they had been put into a Walker’s Store paper bag, I could smell the sweetness of the new material as I carried the parcel back to the cutter.

After supper, all of us sat around the big pine table, with the exception of Father who was in his usual spot in front of the Findlay Oval, and Mother took out the pieces of Dan River cotton and spread them out before her. They would become house dresses,

leading outside and into the summer kitchen. The kitchen was as warm as we could make it. So Father was right. The back of winter had not been broken -- there was more to come. As the storm raged outside, Mother let out a deep sigh and rubbed her hands over the new pieces of Dan River cotton.

EMC news - Ottawa police are warning the public about aggressive door-to-door salespeople that have been reported in the Kanata and Stittsville areas. Const. Lori Fahey, with the community police centre for Kanata and Stittsville, said alarm company representatives are asking alarming questions and using pushy tactics. “They’re asking questions like ‘Do you live alone? Do you often go away on holiday?’” said Fahey. “The tactics are pushy.” There have also been complaints of questionable methods, such as false claims and questionable data being provided by door-to-door salespeople to “encourage residents to purchase,” said Fahey. “We all want to be good neighbours, we all want to be friendly … but do not feel pressure to answer questions,” she said. “You don’t have to let them in.” She spoke to the alarm company, which is based in Hamilton, who in turn talked to his employees about their

behaviour, she said. Residents should call the police if they have questions, concerns or if sales people won’t leave their property. “Unless you called for a service, you don’t have to feel obliged” to let anyone in the door, said Fahey. There have been other reports of a water-testing company sending sales reps doorto-door. The salespeople are telling homeowners their water isn’t safe to drink and that they should buy a water filter system, said Fahey. “City water systems are perfectly safe,” she added. It’s important for residents to do their own research on a product, she said, adding homeowners can ask the salesperson to leave a pamphlet or advertising material. “Do not feel pressured to answer questions or to allow a stranger into your residence,” said Fahey. “And feel free to terminate the conversation when you no longer wish to engage with them.” If a salesperson refuses to leave, call police at 613-2306211. The police recommend the following tips: • Lock your doors and use

the door viewer when possible. • Avoid leaving items of value in plain view of doors and windows. Shut your blinds and curtains when away from home. • Report suspicious activity to the police. • Trim trees and shrubs that could easily hide intruders. • Have adequate exterior lighting. • Improve home security with deadbolts or other locking mechanisms.

PREPARATION

INGREDIENTS

Lightly grease a baking sheet and place dough on it. With floured hands, press out the dough into a 27 by 17-centimetre (11-by-7 inch) oval. Brush with 10 ml (2 tsp) of the oil and let rise in a warm place for 45- 60 minutes. (To create a warm place for dough to rise, turn oven on to 100 C (200 F) for one minute, then

• 500 g (1 lb) pizza dough or frozen bread dough, thawed • 45 ml (3 tbsp) olive oil, divided • 340 g (3/4 lb) fresh mushrooms, thinly sliced - you can use a mixture of white, crimini, portabella, shiitake and oyster mushrooms • 250 ml (1 cup) thinly sliced red or sweet onion

Tips: Prepare your own dough using half whole wheat flour to make it more nutritious. Kalamata or Nicoise olives cured in oil or brine are more flavourful than canned olives. Variations: Crumble goat cheese on top of baked foccacia and return to warm to melt. Pass herb or spiced flavoured oil to drizzle on as desired.

turn it off and place the dough inside the warm oven.) Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in large skillet. Sauté the mushrooms and onions for four minutes or until moisture has evaporated. Add the oregano and garlic, cook for one additional minute. Let cool slightly. With thumb or end of wooden spoon make dimpled surface on the foccacia and top with the mushroom mixture, pressing lightly into dough. Top with olives if you’re using them, as well as the black pepper and Parmesan. Bake at 200 C (400 F) for 20 to 25 minutes or until bottom is lightly browned and crisp. Let cool slightly and cut in wedges or slices to serve. Makes 12 pieces

Surgeon and MP to give Women’s Day keynote speech jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - Dr. Kellie Leitch, a pediatric orthopedic surgeon and MP for SimcoeGrey, will give the keynote speech at a Women’s Day event in Kanata on March 6. The event will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Kanata Recreation Complex, and is hosted by Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley. “I think it’s important to support these initiatives,” said Leitch. “The more that I can do to encourage young women to build their local economies, I’m happy to participate in local events like this. We want all young women to feel like they can participate in their local economies. “We want to make sure that they have the support they need to do that.” A sitting member of parliament, Leitch also volunteers her time at CHEO, where she’s on-call about once a week. “Thanks to the support of the prime minister, I’m still able to practise medicine part time to maintain my licence,” she said. “The prime minister truly appreciates that I still … have something to contribute to Canadian families.” Leitch received the Order of Ontario in 2010 for advocating for children and youth. She said she’s looking forward to being a part of the Kanata event. “I hope that I can bring forward some ideas the women in the room find valuable in developing their businesses and community projects,” she said. WELL RESPECTED

Although Canada is still working towards “true par-

ity” between men and women, Leitch said women are still very well respected. “I think my experiences show that we have progressed; Canadian society is very respectful of the role women have,” said Leitch. “We have a very mature democracy. We have a very mature professional society. “It doesn’t matter if you’re male or female … you can actively participate in Canada’s economic world.” Leitch earned her doctorate of medicine at the University of Toronto and master of business administration at Dalhousie University. Aside from her roles as a MP and orthopedic surgeon, Leitch is also an associate professor of surgery and boasts an extensive resume of organizations she’s belonged to, including: • Former chair of the Ivey Centre for Health Innovation and Leadership • Board member of the YMCA and Community Living • Council member for the National Research Council of Canada • Board member of Genome Canada • Director of the Greater Toronto Area YMCA • Vice-president of the Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research • Founder of the Sandbox project • Host of an annual golf tournament to raise funds for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. “Dr. Leitch was a very accomplished doctor before she even got into politics,” said Hubley about his choice in guest speaker. “She’s an amazing individual.” The first International Women’s Day was held on

March 19, 1911, in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. In 1977, the United Nations adopted a resolution to proclaim a day for women’s rights. Canada chose March 8 to celebrate Women’s Day. Now, the international day is celebrated in a week-long series of events and activities across the country. “I think people should come out just to celebrate the day. I think it’s extremely important that internationally, Women’s Day is celebrated,” said Leitch. “I think it’s just a great day for Canadians to participate in.”

Among her positions, Wilkinson was the reeve of March township from 1976 to 1978, mayor of Kanata from 1978 to 1985 and has been councillor of Kanata North from 2006 to the present. “In my lifetime, I’ve seen a lot of changes for women,â€? said Wilkinson. “There’s still a way to go but I’ve seen a big change ‌ women are better treated.â€? One example is mothers can now receive a year of maternity leave. When Wilkinson had her children, she received no compensation. “There are so many things that have happened; we’ve made huge changes here in Canada, but think about the rest of the world too,â€? she said, adding Women’s Day is also “a way to support women around the world who are still struggling.â€?

EMC news - A local senior care organization is looking to recognize older adults who have volunteered their time this year to charities. Home Instead Senior Care, based in Kanata and serving the Ottawa-area, is sponsoring the 2013 Salute to Senior Service award program, which honours adults 65 years and older who volunteered 15 or more hours a month to a nonprofit. “So many organizations rely on seniors,” said Lesley Sullivan, owner of the Home Instead Senior Care office located in Kanata. “We want to honour them and recognize them.” Older adults are more likely than other age groups to volunteer 170 hours or more annually, according to the 2007 Canada Survey of Giving, Volunteering and Participating. “These volunteers account

Meals on Wheels, one of the non-profits Home Instead contacted, helps provide food to people who are unable to shop for themselves. “Volunteers make it happen at Meals on Wheels; without their contribution, we would never be able to get the food to the clients,” said Baudouin St-Cyr, executive director of the not-for-profit, in an email. “Volunteers deliver the food into the clients’ hands day in, day out, no matter the weather conditions. They provide the nutrition and the caring contact. Without their contribution, Meals on Wheels could not exist.” For more information or to nominate a volunteer, visit SalutetoSeniorService.ca or mail a nomination form to Salute to Senior Service, P.O.

for 78 per cent of all volunteer hours annually – yet too often these selfless individuals remain unnoticed,” said Sullivan. People can nominate themselves or others and the submission period is open until March 31, with online voting taking place from April 15 to 30. The winners will be announced in May. “It is a national program; there will be a provincial winner chosen and a national winner chosen as well,” said Sullivan. The provincial winners will be determined by online votes and a panel of judges will select the top national volunteer. Home Instead will host a local event to honour any nominees that come from the Ottawa area. “I’m hoping that we’re going to have the provincial winner,” Sullivan said.

HMS Pinafore sets course for Algonquin Comedic opera new take on Gilbert and Sullivan classic Jennifer McIntosh

jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

EMC news - A Gilbert and Sullivan comedic opera HMS Pinafore has set a course for the new Commons Theatre at Algonquin College. Set to hit the stage fromApril 11 to 13 and then 18 to 20, the play is presented by the Savoy Society of Ottawa. The story takes place aboard the British ship HMS Pinafore. The captain’s daughter, Josephine, is in love with a lower-class sailor, Ralph Rackstraw, although her father intends her to marry Sir Joseph Porter, the first lord of the admiralty. Réjean Mayer, from Cumberland, plays Sir Joseph Porter. He calls the role as “kooky.” “It’s fun to play it,” he said. Mayer, who just won a Capital Critics’ award for best actor in a community theatre Production for his role in another Gilbert and Sullivan piece called The Mikado, will be working alongside his adopted daughter Courtney Di-

The character, also known as Mrs. Cripps, is a bumboat woman – someone who provides supplies to the sailors aboard the Pinafore. “There are many nuances to her character,” Floyd said. “In some ways she is motherly to the sailors, but she makes a very definite play for one of the sailors many years her junior. She’s a lot of fun.” Floyd just came off a role as Mother Abbess in the Sound of the Music with Es-

She studied voice at Dalhousie University and now works as a counsellor at the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health. Morris said she refining

her character. “Sometimes I do her a little over the top and I am still working on the accent, but I will have it down pat by show time,” she said. In the meantime, she just enjoys being a part of the group. “Savoy societies are like a big family,” she said. “I worked with one here and one in Nova Scotia and it was the same both times.” For more information on the play and to get tickets, visit www.ottawasavoy society.org.

Neighbourhood grant winners announced Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Four groups hit the jackpot last week when the city announced it would give them up to $30,000 each towards small-scale projects to improve their communities. Brewer Park Community Garden, Leslie Park Community Association, Kanata Chinese Seniors Support Centre and Vanier Community Association were selected from 41 applications for the first round of the Better Neighbourhoods program. The aim is to tackle small projects that improve the quality of life in urban and suburban communities. A fringe benefit is improving the working relationship between the city’s bureaucracy and politicians and community groups. The four groups were selected on the following criteria: strong volunteer commitment, innovation and the potential benefits for a wide range of residents in the neighbourhood. For more information about the Better Neighbourhoods program, which will return in 2014, and the city’s Neighbourhood Connection office that oversees the program, visit ottawa.ca/neighbourhoods and sign up for the e-newsletter.

Kanata Chinese Seniors Centre

When older Chinese immigrants move to Canada, their affection for gardening can translate into a backyard full of crops – sometimes to the chagrin of their families, joked Wen Jean Ho, head of the Kanata Chinese Seniors Centre. Ho started the outreach seniors “centre” as an outreach program in 2011 (it doesn’t have a home base and sets up programs at community centres), and participants have been clamoring for a way to channel their energy and knowledge of food production, she said. A community garden led by the Chinese seniors groups would provide them an outlet for their passion and knowledge of farming, and a way to pass that expertise onto the wider community, Ho said. She hopes that some of the produce can be donated to the Kanata Food Cupboard. No location for the garden has been identified yet. The second idea will give Ottawans a chance to have a cultural and culinary experience that’s new to Ottawa. Ho hopes to organize an Asian night market – a onetime event featuring a range of booths selling crafts, gifts, cloths and snack foods, not to

mention performances. “It really has an Asian touch,” Ho said. “You’ll find things that you wouldn’t find in a regular store. It’s something that’s more exotic.” Brewer Park Community Garden

The community-driven garden in Old Ottawa South started last summer with a waiting list twice as long as the number of plots available. The non-profit group told the Old Ottawa South Community Association last month that it hopes to add another 30 raised beds to the existing 28. Ten of the existing plots are allocated for children to learn about where their food comes from by growing it themselves, and five plots are set aside for people in need. “We are committed to providing a growing space for individuals, families, and the local community including a children’s garden and a space to grow food for those in need, based on sustainable organic gardening practices with no chemical fertilizers or pesticides,” reads the presentation given by Michael Oster and Danielle Cantin, who organize the garden, New this year, the group hoped to start up a biodome with the help of the city’s Better Neighbourhoods program.

File

The Kanata Chinese Seniors Social Centre was one of four groups awarded a Better Neighbourhoods grant. The city announced the winners of the first round of funding on Feb. 21. Members of the group show off items used in their New Year celebrations. The raised garden bed covered in a dome would also feature a fish tank that would send nutrient-rich water into the soil. It’s a temporary structure first developed in the 1980s as a way to grow food year-round with a minimal amount of water. Brewer Park’s proposed biodome would be about five metres in diameter and about 2.5 m tall. The structure would enable the group to showcase different ways of growing food and provide educational opportunities delivered by community members. There are plans to partner

with architecture and environmental studies students from Carleton University and Algonquin College to help design and build the biodome. Leslie Park Community Association

According to Lee Ann Snedden, manager of the Neighbourhood Connection office, the Leslie Park community is hoping to revitalize and make better use of a pathway that traverses the community east of Costello that connects to the schoolyard at St. John the Apostle Catholic School, which has four play

structures, a baseball diamond and a large field. The path crosses Graham Creek via a pedestrian bridge. “They want to promote quality space to enhance the neighbourhood,” Snedden said. The path enhancements would also address safety concerns, Snedden said. There have been concerns about squatters using the space in the past. The EMC was not able to connect with representatives from the Leslie Park Community Association before press time to get more details on the proposal.

City hopes to sell books through library website Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - The Ottawa Public Library wants to become the second library in Canada to let people buy – not just borrow – e-books. On Feb. 11, the library board endorsed a plan to partner with an e-book publisher to put a purchase button for ebooks on the library’s website catalogue. It’s a way for the library to earn revenue since the library would get a percentage of each sale that started with the library’s website, which currently gets about 950,000 visits per month. “It’s a bit of a departure from our usual mode of service,” said Jennifer Stirling, the library’s manager of system-wide service and innovation. Customers already use the library to discover books they want to read, Stirling said. If an item isn’t in stock at the library, some people turn to e-book retailers or bookstores to purchase the item, but right now, the library receives no benefit from serving as the conduit for that purchase. Launching a retail affiliate program, as it’s called, would enable the library to benefit

financially from the role it already plays in helping people discover books, Stirling said. Library must still negotiate an agreement with publishers and vendors, so the amount of potential revenue is unknown. The library would likely receive between three and four per cent of sales that originate with customers clicking through from biblioottawalibrary.ca. That’s a firm number set by publishers, but it didn’t impress some board members. “We’re acting as a sales agent. We’re direct advertisers,” said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson, who sits on the board. “Four or five per cent is very low.” Stirling emphasized that the project is a pilot and it might provide insight that will help the Canadian Urban Library Council to negotiate a larger percentage jointly with other cities. But there is another benefit for the library. Publishers are extremely reluctant to sell ebook licenses to libraries because it cuts into profits, so libraries like Ottawa’s cannot offer many bestsellers in ebook form, Stirling said. In some cases, publishers only make a small percentage of

their e-books available for licensing by public libraries – or none at all. Ottawa’s library hopes partnering through an affiliate program will make publishers more open to providing e-book licenses. “The public doesn’t understand the challenge we face with digital (materials),” said Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder, the chairwoman of the library board. “Publishers are so threatened because we are a public library and don’t charge … so they are just not making (e-books) available to us.” Toronto is also planning to implement a “Buy Now” program over the next few months, said spokeswoman Anne Marie Aikins. The Toronto Public Library’s website receives 1.6 million visits per month. Leveraging those visits could provide new revenue and give library customers access to a larger volume of material while still allowing them to support and invest in their library, says a Toronto library board report from last June. The percentages discussed by Toronto’s library included a possible credit for six per cent of sales from the Overdrive publishing catalogue, one of the top e-book vendors.

Sewer construction to enter final phase this summer Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

EMC news - This will be the last summer residents along Meadowlands Drive will have to cope with construction and torn up roads, said city planner Tara Blasioli. Blasioli, who is the project manager for the Meadowlands reconstruction, gave residents an update at a public meeting hosted by Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Egli on Feb. 21. The construction work sought to replace water mains, sewers and associated service connections – as well as full reconstruction of the road surface between Fisher Avenue and Tiverton Drive. The project was done in three phases. The first phase started at Fisher Avenue and ended at Hogan Street. The final phase will be from Inverness Avenue to Tiverton. “A lot of people wanted us to do this section first because there were so many (water main) breaks,” Egli said. “But we had to do things the way we did.” Blasioli said the work would begin in April and be finished in the fall, with some light paving work to be done in the following construction

season. Traffic will be allowed eastbound on Meadowlands during the construction, with westbound traffic rerouted to Inverness Avenue, Bowmoor Avenue, Tiverton and back to Meadowlands Drive. As part of the construction, a permanent signal light was added to the intersection of Inverness and Meadowlands. Egli said it wasn’t originally planned but there was a need for one during the construction period. “There was a significant interest in the community to have a permanent one,” Egli said. “This was an efficient and cost effective way of achieving this goal for the community.” So far the project is on time and on budget. The portion of the contract that was awarded to Greenbelt Construction cost $6.6 million for the section from Inverness to Fisher. The third phase of the contract has yet to be awarded.

she said. “Even though in the later years we learned there may be ways to change the flow, we found it was easier on people if it stayed the same.” Cousineau also said construction crews started using more flexible barriers to block off the road during construction. “We found with the hard barriers some people were driving up and around on the grass,” she said. “So we’ve had to be a little more flexible.” Egli said while the construction has slowed down traffic and made things difficult for residents over the last couple of summers, it was necessary work. Several people were left without water during the water main breaks in the summer of 2010. “Once the work is finished everything will be running a lot more smoothly,” he said.

LESSONS LEARNED

Heidi Cousineau, who was the project manager on the reconstruction for the earlier phases, said staff used the same road detours over subsequent years. “People learn the route,”

Gymnasts celebrate Gymnastics Week Kanata Rhythmic Gymnastics Club

EMC sports - National Gymnastics Week in Canada ran from Feb. 13 to 19 with more than 700 clubs taking part across the country. The clubs were aiming to increase awareness of gymnastics and to promote the benefits of the sport in all its forms. Rhythmic gymnasts in programs with the Kanata Rhythmic Gymnastics Club celebrated the fun of the sport by sharing it with their parents during a class-watching day, and with their friends at a bring-a-friend to gymnastics day the following week. KRSG recreational programs take place in five different locations in Kanata and Stittsville. National Gymnastics Week highlights the benefits of gymnastics for a fun and active life. Rhythmic gymnastics helps to develop overall fitness, flexibility, strength, and coordination. Please visit krsg. org for details of upcoming events at the club.

EMC news - What if you could read See Spot Run to a Dog? Sounding out words with man’s best friend can take some of the pressure of children who are learning to read said Reading Education Assistance Dogs (R.E.A.D) co-ordinator Julie Davies. The program is part of the larger organization called Ottawa Therapy Dogs – a charity that uses animals to comfort and care for patients struggling with physical or mental challenges. The R.E.A.D program partners children with dogs and their handler so kids can work on phonics with a furry friend. Kristen Schoenhals, whose son Nathanael just finished the program at Ruth E Dickinson and is already registered to start at Centennial on March 30, swears by the program. Nathanael is in French immersion at school and was having trouble learning to read in his native tongue Schoenhals said. “He really didn’t have any interest learning to read in English,” she said. “The difference now is amazing.” Davies said when children are struggling at school they can be terrified of being chosen to read out loud. “When they read with the dogs the handlers take some of the pressure off,” she said. “Often they will say things like, ‘Spot can’t understand that word either, maybe we will sound it out.’” There are currently 20 teams of dogs and handlers participating in school and library programs across the city. The program is so popular that there is currently a waiting list. Davies said the small, Manotick-based charity only has one full-time staff. “It’s a challenge, but it’s such a great program,” she said. Nathanael’s favourite reading friend is a St. Bernard named Brutus, but Davies said the program offers friends as large as Brutus or as small as a daschund. Davies said there is even a dog that will bark when prompted with a sign that reads “speak.” Holding the program at local libraries means the children have a variety of books they can choose from. “This way they learn to read books on a variety of subjects,” Davies said. More information on the program is available at www. ireadwithdogs.ca. To register with the program at Centennial Library, call 613-828-5142. The program is on Saturdays from 2 to 4 p.m. starting March 30 and ending June 22.

EMC news - Reading is an important life-long skill—and developing strong reading habits from an early age sets the stage for life. “While we know that it’s important for young children have strong reading skills, getting kids to embrace reading is not always as simple,” says Nick Whitehead, the founder and CEO of Oxford Learning. Fortunately there are several strategies that parents can take to help their kids improve both their love of reading and their reading skills. According to Dr. Whitehead, the number one thing that parents can do to improve their child’s reading ability is to simply make books available in the home and to have a regular reading time. He also suggests some other simple ideas to encourage reading such as going to the library together, reading books together as a family, reading a book series, or listening to audio books in the car. For parents who have tried all the basic tips and still have difficulty getting their children to embrace reading, Dr. Whitehead suggests that parents of older children give their kids banned books or let them read above their skill level. Studies have shown that telling a child a book is banned sparks their interest to read it more. For younger children, parents can stop reading right at a pivotal point to guarantee that children become interested enough to read on by themselves to find out what happens next. News Canada

MEETING REMINDERS: Radon Gas Information Session: Monday, March 4th, 7-9 pm, Mlacak Centre

EMC entertainment - Spring may yet be several weeks away, but the warm sounds of the Kanata Symphony’s latest musical offerings remind us that it’s closer than we think. The Spring Family concert will be held Saturday, March 2, starting at 7 p.m. at Glen Cairn United Church, 140 Abbeyhill Rd. The program features works by Wagner, including The Meistersinger Overture and an excerpt from the opera Lohengrin. Also on the program is Peter and the Wolf by Prokofiev. Peter and the Wolf is a children’s story, spoken by a narrator and accompanied by the orchestra. Prokofiev was commissioned to write this piece with the purpose of cultivating musical tastes in young children. Each character in the story is played by a particular instrument and has its own musical theme. The piece tells of the exploits of Peter (string section) and his animal friends the Bird (flute), the Duck (oboe), and the Cat (clarinet), as they try to outsmart the mean old wolf (French horns). Saint-Pierre has been with the Ottawa Storytellers for two years and loves the combination of stories and music. He also tells stories in French with the Cercle des conteurs de l’est de l’Ontario. Lohengrin is a romantic opera in three acts composed and written by Richard Wagner. It is the story of a mysterious Swan Knight, who is sent to protect Elsa, a young woman who has been unjustly accused of murder. Later, Elsa and the knight are married, and tragic consequences ensue as it is revealed that he is Lohengrin, a Knight of the Holy Grail, and that the revelation of his true name means he must leave the mortal realm and abandon his new bride. Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg (The Mastersingers of Nuremberg) is a comedic opera by Wagner. The meistersingers, or master-singers, were guilds of poets and musicians who promoted poetry and singing in various German towns during the 14th to 16th centuries. The opera is set in Nuremberg in the 16th century and tells the story of a song-contest held by these Meistersingers. The Overture, which we will be presenting, is a popular concert item in its own right. Tickets for the concert are $10 for adults, $8 for students and seniors, and $25 for families. Tickets are available through Domenic’s music, CD warehouse, orchestra members, or at the door. Refreshments will follow after the concert.

Wynne promises science and tech support for Ottawa area Eddie Rwema and Sydney Steele eddie.rwema@metroland.com

Premier Kathleen Wynne, right, enjoys a laugh with David Ross, left, CEO of Nepean-based Ross Video, during the new premier’s first visit to Ottawa since being sworn in to her new position. first visit to Ottawa sends a signal that she understands Ottawa is the second largest economy in the province. “We wanted to make sure that we get her to spend as much time (as possible) understanding our issues and working with us on everything from light rail, environmental cleanups to economic development,” said Watson. He said the premier was briefed on the importance of the size of the technology economy in Ottawa. “People think technology is bigger in Kitchener and Waterloo. We are in fact much larger than they are when it comes to technology and (the) number of companies,” he said. Recent and continuing federal job cuts are said to be hurting Ottawa’s economy, and the mayor thinks something must be done to fill those voids.

“At the end of the day, we want to make sure that we have the jobs to keep people here especially young people who are graduating from colleges and universities,” said Watson. HOPEFUL TO PASS BUDGET

Wynne said she was hopeful she can work with the

opposition to pass the spring budget so as to avoid an election. “My sincere hope is that we will be able to put together a budget that occupies the middle ground and will allow the opposition parties to support us,” she said. “I know we have challenges. I am not going to be naïve to the challenges that we face,

but at the same time I believe that we do have an opportunity here as the minority government to capture the desires of the province and have the opposition work with us.” The premier added that she would continue to work with the opposition, to the degree that they are willing, to make sure they capture the best ideas for the province.

“If the opposition is not willing to work with us and if they want to trigger an election then we are fully prepared to go into an election,” said Wynne. “I don’t think anybody wants an election. We’ll do our best to bring in a budget that will pass and hope that Hudak and Horwath will work with us.”

EMC news – Job creation in Ottawa was front and centre at a business roundtable hosted by Premier Kathleen Wynne on Feb. 22, in her first official trip outside Queen’s Park. Wynne chose to hold the roundtable at Ross Video, a video production company in the west end of Ottawa to emphasize the need to support research and innovation. The premier met with several business leaders, calling for their support in creating more jobs in the Ottawa area. She said her government will continue to support research and innovation, building an environment that will reinforce Ontario’s position to attract companies seeking a smart and skilled workforce. “It is our collective goal to be a government that creates the conditions for jobs to be created by private enterprises,” Wynne said. But the premier refused to commit her government to a boost in spending on science and technology in the coming provincial budget. Research and development are crucial in unleashing creativity in the province, she said. “Ontario is already a powerhouse in information communications technology (ICT), and we need the expertise and insight of this sector to help us to advance innovation and create new opportunities for the people of Ontario,” she said. There are more than 18,000 innovative ICT companies operating in Ontario, according to a release from the premier’s office. The sector is said to be creating more than 270,000 jobs and contributing more than$28 billion to the province’s gross domestic product. David Ross, chief executive officer of Ross Video, said the province needs companies like his that are growing, stable, with high technology and creating manufacturing jobs for Ontarians. “She has an interesting challenge trying to balance a budget deficit with trying to stimulate growth at the same time,” Ross said.

Spring into Action! Extracurriculars return

EMC news – Extracurricular activities are set to resume after the Ontario Secondary School Teachers Federation decided to end its political action. The Feb. 22 announcement means that public high school students across the province will once again enjoy extracurricular activities. A statement posted on the federation’s website announced the provincial council of the federation voted to recommend to members to suspend their political action related to extra-curricular and voluntary activities. “We expect that this sign of good will from our members will prompt the government to have genuine discussions that can lead to a fair resolution to this current impasse,” Ken Coran, president of OSSTF said in a statement. “We still maintain that voluntary activities are just that: voluntary,” he said. “We encourage members to review recent information and decide if they are willing to return to participating in the activities we know they feel so passion-

ately about.” Students across the province protested the loss of their extracurricular activities when teachers withdrew voluntary work after Bill 115 imposed a two-year wage freeze on teachers’ salaries. Premier Kathleen Wynne said she was happy to hear the results of the vote by OSSTF members. “I’m so glad that teachers, support staff and students across the province will once again enjoy the extracurricular activities and programs that mean so much to them,” Wynne said in a statement. “For the past few weeks, my team and I have been meeting with our partners in the public sector and engaging in positive, frank and collaborative discussions about our shared priorities.” The move by the high school teachers’ union puts pressure on the Elementary Teachers Federation of On-

tario. However, elementary teachers’ union president Sam Hammond said he doesn’t feel any pressure, given that the two situations are different. Hammond said his union’s meetings with the province will continue, and that its executive will “review the situation, the progress at the table and take a lot of things into account” next Wednesday and Thursday, before making any decision on extracurricular activities, which is expected by March 1. “We are going to make our own decisions, based on our own situation with the government, on how we are going to move forward,” he said. Earlier, Yasir Naqvi, MPP for Ottawa Centre, said he was confident the government can resolve some of the outstanding challenges. With files from Torstar News Service

EMC news - A Greely musician is hoping his song can help the world put an end to suicide. Larry Pegg wrote his song Weight last October while attending the Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention convention in Niagara Falls. The upbeat but emotional song was motivated by the grief he’s endured since his daughter died by suicide at the age of 20 in 2007. The song’s message, Pegg said, is to convince everyone to slow down and let others help you carry your burden. “We all carry weight, and there are times when we feel crushed by the burden of it and darkness can become frightening and unbearable,” Pegg wrote on his blog. “My objective with this song is to try and help those that have lost hope to reach out and at least to find some comfort in and through the

music.” Pegg took his song and message to the next level through CBC’s Searchlight contest, a national competition to find Canada’s next big artist. Under the artist name LPGroove, throughout February Pegg was busy mobilizing an army of voters to help his song win the contest with the promise that all proceeds will support the mental health and suicide prevention cause at large. Although the song did not make it past the first round of voting, Pegg is determined to keep the momentum going to help the suicide prevention cause. By May, he hopes to release his first album during Mental Health Week, featuring Weight and another nine to 13 songs. He is recording in studio now. Titled Before and Afterlife and the Theory of Positivity, the album will feature collaborations with a number of Canadian and international

musicians. All proceeds from the album’s sales will go to mental health programs, although Pegg hasn’t decided which organizations will benefit from his music yet. Weight’s lyrics climax with the words, “You’ve got to wait/Just share the weight/ This love is great.” Pegg said it captures the feelings of every parent who has endured their child’s suicide. “You’re screaming out, ‘please wait, don’t do it, come back, we love you,’” he said through tears at his kitchen table. “This has become my raison d’etre.” Pegg said that if his song had won the contest, everyone would have won because “the world (would) be healthier.” “CBC sees it merely as a popularity contest, but I see it as an opportunity to focus the power of the mental health and suicide prevention network, and music.” But win or lose, Pegg said the contest served as a convenient platform for suicide prevention. “(It’s) a way to keep sending the message,” he said.

Bomb scare leads to downtown traffic chaos Re-routing of buses, snowstorm results in hours of gridlock Steph Willems

steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news – The investigation of a suspicious package at the Tom Brown Arena led to a miserable trip home for thousands of westbound commuters on Feb. 19. The subsequent late afternoon closure of both Scott Street and the Transitway in the vicinity of Bayview Station caused vehicle and bus traffic to be funneled down Somerset Street and Wellington Street West between Lebreton Station and Tunney’s Pasture. O-Train service was also suspended at Bayview. The sudden re-routing, coupled with the onset of rush hour and a ill-timed snowstorm, led to hours of gridlock in the affected areas and made for the unusual sight of numerous suburban route double-decker OC Transpo buses inching though the centre of Hintonburg. As Bayview Street was also closed between Scott and Wellington, some confused motorists could be seen driving their vehicles through the non-vehicular intersection of Somerset and Wellington.

That intersection has been closed for years, though several vehicles were able to squeeze through the gap in the barriers in order to continue heading west. One man walking east over the Somerset Street Bridge said he had just “escaped” an OC Transpo bus after sitting nearly idle for an hour, and was planning to “save time” by walking to Bank Street.. A police established a perimeter around Tom Brown Arena following the 2 p.m. call regarding suspected explosives left in a gym bag. Officers could also be seen stationed underneath the loading ramp behind the City Centre building. In addition to manning the cordon, officers were kept busy managing traffic flow. Ottawa police lifted the road closures after announcing the resolution of the situation. “It is believed that the contents of the package were pyrotechnics or energy type devices and have been successfully detonated by the Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosives (CBRNE) team,” police said in a statement issued later

Agriculture Museum readies spring programs, new space Renovated heritage building can now welcome visitors all year long Steph Willems

steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - Spring is right around the corner - at least according to the calendar – and the Canada Agriculture Museum is looking forward to inviting the public into a new year-round programming space. Until now, the museum, located in the Central Experimental Farm, had to forgo winter activities due to the lack of heated indoor space, but the recent renovation of a heritage building has changed that. The museum’s new Learning Centre is scheduled to open on May 4, and will allow organizers to offer new activities and programs. “Right now the exhibition spaces are closed for winter,” said spokeswoman Kelly Ray. “With this new building we will be offering programming year-round.” The extensive renovation also added modern plumbing and heat, while leaving the exterior appearance relatively unchanged. The original flooring and sturdy wooden beams also remained. “The renovated heritage building … used to be an

old mechanics shop,” said Ray. “We’ve gutted it and added space to the second floor that allows for a 100-seat lecture hall and three learning labs.” Originally constructed in 1930, the building’s new purpose will open up the farm to more visitors looking explore the country’s agricultural roots through museum programming. The inaugural exhibition in the new Learning Centre will be one that holds a distinct appeal to children. Titled A Piece of Cake, the exhibit invites children and adults alike to learn exactly what goes into baking a simple apple cake. By focusing on how each ingredient in the cake is created, farmed and processed, visitors will gain knowledge of the food chain and will likely appreciate the existence of their neighbourhood grocery store a little more. Other annual events are scheduled to return, starting next month. The museum kicks off programming with its Barnyard Break, running from March 2 to 17, while Easter at the Farm runs March 29 to April 1.

Years of hard work pay off for Irish society New plaque to commemorate Irish immigrants’ contribution to the Rideau Canal Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

Michelle Nash

A committee dedicated to honour Irish workers who helped built the canal plans a celebration in Lowertown for March 14 which will officially commemorate the many Irish immigrants who helped build the famous waterway. and it was rejected twice but what I think happened was the public’s opinion changed,”

Dooley said. “There is a bigger picture, the canal is a living part of our culture and you can’t mess with the canal and with that we found with that was people started to catch on that this cause of ours was important. “Our catch phrase was that this country was built on blood, sweat and tears. it was hard but they built it something and I think that once the heritage committee saw there was interest they began to change their minds.” On Nov. 2, 2012, Parks Canada officially announced

it would formally recognize the construction workers who built the canal. McKenney credits Dooley as one of the individuals who made this upcoming event possible. “A lot of people have done a lot of work to make this happen, but if it weren’t for Kevin I don’t think we would have ensure that forever more the workers will be recognized for their work,” McKenney said. Two plaques will be placed along the canal: one located at Jones Falls in Elgin, Ont.,

and one located at the Corktown footbridge in Ottawa. The plaques will be large with two interpretive panels that will tell the story of how the canal was built in both official languages. The evening’s celebration on March 14 will be part of the annual Irish Festival and will welcome the mayor and representatives from Parks Canada and the Irish Embassy. Doors open at 7 p.m. with finger food to be provided by the organizers. A cash bar will be available.

R0011911487

EMC news - After years of work to get recognition for the sacrifices of Irish workers who helped build the Rideau Canal, a celebration to mark the official commemoration will feature fun, laughter and good old fashion tune or two. The Irish Society of the National Capital Region and the Ottawa and District Labour Council are sponsoring the event full of music and poetry to help mark the very special moment for Irish descendants, who will receive two plaques commemorating their contribution to the building of the Rideau Canal on March 14 at St. Brigid’s Centre. “It may sound corny, but a lot of us sort of appreciate if we close our eyes on that day, we will all feel those workers looking down on us saying ‘thank you,’” said Sean McKenny, president of the Ottawa and District Labour Council.

The Rideau Canal was built between 1826 and 1832, with thousands of immigrants, including many from Ireland and France, laying the foundations of the world-famous waterway. It is estimated more than 1,000 workers died of malaria during the construction of the canal. In 2006, the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada was asked by an adhoc committee made up of members from the Irish Society of the National Capital Region and the Ottawa and District Labour Council to consider the contributions of the Irish workers for designation. Over the past six years, the nomination has been denied twice. Local Irish musician and author Kevin Dooley worked with the committee. After years of trying to make the case the Irish workers’ contribution with no avail, Dooley is happy this day is finally drawing near. “Our group did the work

lems. “It seems to be reasonable as long as peoples’ feelings are considered,” Joyce said. FUTURE TRAIL EXPANSION

Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson said that, if all goes well, he foresees an expansion of approved ATV trails in other rural wards. “If it works, and I think it will, then we can expand,” Thompson said. “I’m open to that. I think we’ll know better after the first year of this. We’ll have a good summary of how effective the bylaw was.” Thompson said that ATV ownership is increasing Gough estimates 12,000 ATVs to 7,000 snowmobiles in the city - and it makes sense to start regulating their use now. “If we don’t do something we’re going to have major problems,” he said. “This way we have rules and regulations and the police are involved.” Fitzroy Harbour resident Brian Wilson would love to see ATVs allowed across the rural parts of the city. “I’d like to see ATVs allowed wherever snowmobiles are. It would be an easy fix,” Wilson said. He uses his ATV to travel from one farm to another using the shoulders, and he’d like to use it to get to the river or go to a friend’s place as well. While he supports the project in Osgoode, he’d like to see more. “That’s not helping us in West Carleton,” Wilson said. “How about the individuals out there who want to do this?” Feedback about the project can be sent to ruralaffairs@ottawa.ca until March 14.

The campaign received international attention through pop star Justin Bieber and talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres.

EMC news - Though blowing snow may have kept the crowds away, the residents who did come out to discuss a local ATV pilot project seemed satisfied with the plan. The Nation Valley ATV Club based in North Dundas has been working with the City of Ottawa to allow allterrain vehicles to drive on some shoulders and unopened road allowances in Osgoode Ward. Currently, ATVs in Ottawa are only allowed to cross roads at a 90-degree angle, as per the province’s Highway Traffic Act. However since 2009 the act has allowed municipalities to pass exceptions to that rule as they sit fit, which Greely resident Kris Gough has been trying to accomplish in Ottawa for several years. Now a two-year pilot project is set for a vote at the city’s Agricultural and Rural Affairs Committee on April 4. The plan would allow club members and other licensed ATVers to use 8.2 kilometres of shoulders and unopened road allowances, including shoulders along Cabin Road between Doyle Road and Manotick Station Road and Manotick Station Road between Cabin Road and Springhill Road. The majority of the proposed trail network follows unopened road allowances connected to Dozois Road, Blanchfield Road and Third Line Road. Gough would like trail users to be able to park at the Red Dot Cafe parking lot and use Second Line Road to access the trail. ATVs would have yearround access to the trails, except during spring thaw and hunting season, and would only be allowed on the trails between 30 minutes before sunrise and 30 minutes after sunset - even during the shortest days of winter. “We don’t want to ATV at night because we can’t see the track,” Gough explained, noting that snowmobilers can use their machines at night because their preferred path is straight and flat. The plan would only apply to standard ATVs without modified exhausts to avoid noise concerns, and speed limits would be enforced on shoulders. Generally, in areas where cars drive 100 km/h ATVs must drive 50 km/h. In 50km/h zones, ATVs must stick to 20 km/h. Phil Edens, a traffic engineer with the city, said the proposal is viable if proper precautions are taken to keep everyone safe. He wants the city to only approve use of shoulders that are two metres wide, and to install No Stop-

ping signs so that parked farm machinery and other vehicles will not force ATVs into the roadway. He would also like the ATV club to post their own signs to show trail users where to go and warn drivers to watch for the off-road vehicles. “We want (drivers) to have the expectation that there may be an ATV,” Edens said. Constable Neil Lockwood with the Ottawa police marine, dive and trails unit, who also stopped by the meeting for more information, said he has no immediate concerns about the proposal, as long as ATV users respect the rules the city decides to put forward. “We’ll just wait for it to come into place and then we’ll enforce what we have to enforce,” Lockwood said. “It’s no different than snowmobile trails.” Rideau Forest resident Harry Joyce lives in the subdivision at the top end of the proposed network, along Dozois Road. He was hesitant to give the plan his full approval, but said he was satisfied with the precautions the city and club had taken to make it workable. “It ought to be possible to work something out that pleases everyone,” Joyce said. “The concern is that that (portion of trail south of the subdivision) is where people walk and go with their kids.” He was also concerned the ATVs might try to hook up with a new snowmobile trail that appeared this winter along Dozois after Hydro One cleared the ditches. The curfew, however, is a welcome provision to avoid noise prob-

Greenbelt plan supports west end equestrian park jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

EMC news - Thanks to comments from residents the NCC will be hanging onto Greenbelt land near the Queensway Carleton Hospital. The latest details of the NCC’s vision for the Greenbelt were unveiled at a public meeting at the Nepean Sportsplex on Feb. 19. The Greenbelt master plan – which is set to go before the crown corporation’s board in the spring – will also see Pinhey Forest designated as natural area Other changes to the westend portion of the Greenbelt include an amendment to the Nepean National Equestrian Park to allow for the proposal submitted by the Wesley Clover Foundation. The Greenbelt Research Farm, a federally-owned facility on Woodroffe Avenue across from the Sportsplex, will keep its current footprint. The study of a master plan for the 20,000-hectare expanse of land started in 2008, then moved to a series of consultations that looked at land uses, potential additions and conservation. If the plan is approved by the commission’s board, it would be implemented between 2014 and 2067. “We wanted to make the

Greenbelt more relevant,” Lalonde said. “We wanted to give it a clearer identity and roles.” Lalonde said core natural areas like Shirley’s Bay, Pine Grove and Mer Bleue make up 40 per cent of the Greenbelt. Agricultural lands make up another 29 per cent. “The natural environment is a priority,” Lalonde said, adding they are also looking at sustainable agriculture practices and links to bring together the different sectors of the Greenbelt. Due to a lack of interest from private landowners, planned additions to Mer Bleue, Shirleys Bay, Carlsbad Springs and the airport will likely not happen, Lalonde said. But Green’s Creek will remain a core natural area. Lori Thornton, acting chief of planning for the NCC, said just because private landowners didn’t want to surrender their land to the Greenbelt, it doesn’t mean they aren’t watching over the wildlife. KANATA

In Kanata, land on Eagleson Road near Stoney Swamp is flagged for sustainable agriculture projects. Peter Ruiter, a dairy farmer in Ottawa that leases land from the NCC, said he was concerned the sustainable agriculture focus will result in more regulations for his

farm. Ruiter lost $100,000 this year because of the dry summer. He also replaced a barn on the property a few years ago but said the next generation likely won’t want to invest on leased land. There are currently 70 crop farmers leasing land from the NCC, as well as three dairy farmers. “They are currently trying to build something like the Greenbelt around Toronto, but it’s much more difficult after the fact,” Thornton said. “So we are ahead of the game.” As part of the master plan, the NCC is working with the city’s transit master plan to identify spaces for roads through the Greenbelt to alleviate traffic in the city. Sol Shuster, a resident of Nepean and chairman of the Greenbelt Coalition, said the coalition has no problem with the removal of airport lands, but doesn’t want to see roads going through the Greenbelt. “Particularly projects like the widening of Richmond Road, which would go right through Stoney Swamp,” he said. Thornton said just because the roadways had been identified through the city’s master plan doesn’t necessarily mean the NCC would give all the proposed routes a green light. “They are just being considered,” she said.

Melanie Adams, director of the Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation, welcomes the Fab Five to the Bushtukah store in Stittsville on Feb. 22.

Hospital starts wellness campaign with Fab Five Jennifer McIntosh

jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

EMC news - Sharleen Piotto is one of the Queensway Carleton Hospital’s Fab Five. The west-end resident will be one of five women to participate in the hospital’s inaugural Wheels for Wellness fundraiser. The event will raise money for the hospital’s $40-million Better Tools for Better Care campaign. Melanie Adams, director of the Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation, said the funds will go to buy equipment to outfit the newly-expanded hospital. The team was chosen through the Women Leading Care Network, which brings together women leaders in the community to discuss healthcare issues. Adams said the women were chosen from 25 applications. “We wanted a broad age range,” Adams said. “And we wanted everyday people to show that anyone can do it.” The women will participate in a 50-kilometre route in the city’s west end. Most are new to cycling and all are new to marathons.

Piotto, who recently had a hip replaced, said she used to run marathons. Because of the surgery she can no longer do that, so the chance to take up cycling was something she didn’t want to pass up. “It’s such a great opportunity,” she said. The five participants will received coaching, nutritional support and equipment as part of their program. Adams said the team’s fundraising goal is $10,000. She said the goal for the event itself is to raise $500,000. Nancy Penk, 57, said she is healthy but couldn’t pass up the chance to get fit. “I was going to the doctor and the tests were OK, but I want to make sure I am good shape before it’s too late,” she said, adding she plans to start biking to her area corner store when the weather warms up. A Stittsville native, Penk said she is excited to share her journey to fitness with the other women on the team. Karen Sparks, a west Ottawa resident who recently had a baby said she was excited to join because being a new mom lends some challenges to maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

“It’s tough to stay active when you have a new baby,” she said. Sparks is an equestrian and has done some mountain biking, but has never participated in a marathon. Dave Morton, who is the general manager at Bushtukah, helped outfit the team with their bikes and trainers so they could start cycling at home before the snow melts. Jim Brockbank, who serves as a volunteer on the hospital foundation’s board of directors will coach the amateur athletes. “I came to cycling myself a few years ago and I think it’s great what these women are doing,” he said. Jennifer Camirand, from Be Well Nutrition, will offer nutritional support in the form of counselling, meal plans and grocery shopping tips. “We can even clean out kitchens if it’s needed,” she said. Anne Paliwal, with YW/ YMCA said the participants would also get a six-month membership to the fitness club. “These women are setting examples we can all follow,” she said.

Aries, a mountain of responsibility has put pressure on you. Although you cannot shy away from what has to be done, you can put a smile on your face when tackling your tasks.

Libra, a chance encounter has you rethinking what you want to accomplish in the next few weeks. You are secondguessing all of your plans because of this surprise.

Taurus, something special will take place in the next few days and you will be on hand to experience all of it. Magical moments are to be made with a romantic partner.

A decision you made could have long-term effects, Scorpio. You’ll probably find that you have to do some damage control this week to get things back on track.

Gemini, you may want to think before you speak when a friend asks for advice. The truth might hurt, so it could be wise to keep quiet for the time being.

Sagittarius, all indications point to a monumental change in your life. Wait to see what occurs and put big decisions or vacations on hold.

Cancer, a stroke of inspiration leads you on a creative journey. Things will calm down toward the end of the week when you have to focus on more tangible things.

Capricorn, it can be tempting to toss away your responsibilities and simply have fun. But then you will be so backed up it could take quite a while to dig out from under your to-do list.

Leo, someone you know wants to step things up to another level, but you may not be ready to take that kind of plunge. Talk over your feelings in a kind way.

Fun By The Numbers Like puzzles? Then you’ll love sudoku. This mind-bending puzzle will have you hooked from the moment you square off, so sharpen your pencil and put your sudoku savvy to the test! Here’s How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

Aquarius, just when you need a bit of sunshine, a satisfying piece of good news arrives. Your spouse or partner plays a significant role in this positive development.
