EMC news - Now that a decision has been made regarding one Beaverbrook midrise, the community association is looking for input on the next proposal. The Kanata Beaverbrook Community Association is collecting comments from residents on a proposed 15-storey building by developer Phil Bottriell at 1131 Teron Rd. “As an individual citizen, your input, especially if it’s well articulated, (makes a difference). It does have an impact on the city,” said Neil Thomson, planning and legal executive member for the KBCA. “We’re looking for people in direct proximity (to) give their personal perspective on how this will affect them.” Community comments helped in the city’s decision on the proposal for 2 The Parkway. It saw the development lowered to seven-storeys from the original 16. “We know the (Official) Plan well now,” said Thomson. “We know how to make a case. We know it’s essential people continue to come forward.” Residents in Bethune and Jackson courts, as well as on Varley Lane, are the closest to the proposed development. “It’s about compatibility and transition and appropriate height for a low-scale community,” said Thomson.

EMC news – With the new changes announced to the federal electoral boundaries due to kick in for the anticipated 2015 election, Gordon O’Connor’s newly configured riding, with about 101,000 voters, will be called Kanata-Carleton. The current Carleton-Mississippi Mills seat will be reconfigured in such a way that he will no longer partially represent the northern tip of Lanark County in the House of Commons. Now, fellow Conservative MP Scott Reid alone will represent the whole county. “At the moment, I have 155,000 people in my riding,� said O’Connor during a telephone interview last week, including Kanata, Missis-

sippi Mills, Goulbourn, and West Carleton. “I will lose about 50,000 (voters). About 15,000 to 16,000 are Mississippi Mills and the plan is that those would be attached to the (newly re-named riding of) LanarkFrontenac, which is Scott Reid’s.� Meanwhile, 34,000 to 35,000 voters in Stittsville and Goulbourn will be switched to Conservative MP Pierre Poilievre’s newly-named riding of Rideau-Carleton. “There is a huge shift for Pierre too,� said O’Connor, with a new riding called simply Nepean being created, taking in Barrhaven and Bells Corners, as part of 15 new ridings being created. All ridings are not created equal however, and the usual give-andtake of the Canadian federation does make for complicated ridingmaking.

“The best part of my job is when I succeed at making a significant difference in the life of a child or youth.�

“It gets complicated,� said O’Connor. “We are locked into certain constitutional positions.� O’Connor pointed to Prince Edward Island, a province beloved by not only Anne of Green Gables’ fans, but also constitutional and parliamentary policy wonks as well. “The rule is that they have the same number of MPs as senators,� said O’Connor of PEI’s four senators and members of parliament. “They have a population smaller than my riding,� and they have more MPs. “At some point, there has to be some kind of constitutional balance,� O’Connor said, noting that in five years, his riding has seen a 16 per cent rise in population. However, he was adamant that losing so many rural voters would not affect his re-election chances in two-and-a-half years, stating that there “are the same potential as the other (ridings),� he said. “We have a good level of support for the Conservative party.� However, he said he will be sad to see Mississippi Mills go. “I don’t want to lose any (of my riding),� said O’Connor. “I am happy with the riding as it is now.� The Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission for Ontario released its report on the changes on Feb. 25, adding 15 new ridings in the province. Interestingly, the report singled out O’Connor’s riding, stating that it was important that Scotiabank Place be included in the riding as it had always been associated with Kanata. The report also made mention of Mississippi Mills and Reid’s request to keep all of Lanark County under one MP.

Firefighters brighten dim situation at Walden Village Crews carry residents to rooms after eight-hour power outage Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - A Kanata retirement home was delighted by support offered by firefighters last month after a power outage left residents in the dark for eight hours on Feb. 28. The power outage had many residents of the Walden Village Retirement Residence in Kanata Lakes stranded from their rooms. But quick action from Beaverbrook’s Station 42 B group brightened an otherwise stressful situation. A group of firefighters helped carry residents who couldn’t physically manage the stairs to their rooms. “This was more than a job that

they did. It was phenomenal,” said Pam Thoms, executive director at Walden Village. “It meant everything to us and the residents.” The power went out around 6 p.m. at the retirement home. Thoms said she tried to contact Hydro Ottawa, but couldn’t get through. So she called 911, which connected her with the local firehouse. The station contacted Hydro Ottawa and lent residents flashlights. When the power still hadn’t come back on by 8:30 p.m., the fire crew came back to the residence to help people return to their suites. “They were here for about an hour,” said Thoms, adding firefighters carried 10 to 12 people to their rooms. “They carried all our resi-

dents that couldn’t take the stairs.” She said the team, led by fire Captain Cameron Fletcher, was “very gracious and very professional.” “They considered this part of their job,” she added. “They made what could have been a traumatic experience for everyone seamless. “I just want to commend them.” The power came back on around 2 a.m. “The next day everyone was like ‘Wow, this was awesome,’” said Thoms. Thoms visited the B group on March 13 to give each firefighter a $15 gift card to Tim Horton’s and a signed thank-you card from the residents. “I’m very thankful. I just want

JESSICA CUNHA/METROLAND

Firefighters from the Beaverbrook station helped carry residents to their suites during a power outage on Feb. 28. to show our appreciation to them. Sometimes they don’t get thanked enough,” said Thoms. Ottawa fire spokesman Marc Messier said the practice is a stan-

dard one. “We would definitely help people in those types of situations,” said Messier. “Public service is one of the call types that we often do.” R0031955683

The city agrees with Thomson, saying a 15-storey building is too high for the area. “The feedback we’re getting from the city is that they believe it’s way out of line,� said Thomson.

EMC news – The city is looking to crack down on misleading donation boxes with a new bylaw requiring operators to clearly identify themselves as either a charity or forprofit. The proposed bylaw will also require operators to maintain the area around the boxes and immediately respond to complaints from the public, said Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley. “We want to make sure all the boxes that are out there are following all the rules and not misleading residents,” said Hubley. “I just want people to have the information they need to make an informed decision on what they do with their donation.” In 2011, after receiving complaints from residents about mysterious collection bins popping up throughout the community, Hubley led an effort to remove for-profit boxes from Jack Charron Arena and the Kanata Recreation Complex. Registered local charities, such as Neighbourhood Services, reported a drop in donations after the for-profit bins started appearing throughout the city, said Hubley. The following year, city council banned donation boxes on all city property if they weren’t owned by a registered charity. “These boxes, before I got involved were at all the park and rides,” said Hubley. A staff report on the proposed bylaw going before the city’s community and protective services committee on March 21 will take the city ban one step further, said Hubley, requiring donation box operators to clearly identify themselves as either a for-profit or a registered charity. The city isn’t prepared to issue an outright ban of the for-profits, said Hubley. Staff will recommend launching a public awareness campaign, he said, informing the public about the new rules for donation boxes.

Kanata to walk the cross Steve Dool steve.dool@metroland.com

EMC news - This Good Friday will mark the 28th anniversary of the annual Walk of the Cross event in Kanata. The walk starts at noon, Friday March 29, at St. Paul Anglican Church, 20 Young Rd. It will have stops at the Kakulu Medical Centre, Castlefrank Rd, Holy Redeemer Catholic School, 75 McCurdy Dr., and Trinity Presbyterian Church 110 McCurdy Dr., before returning to St. Paul. “It’s an important community event that has become a tradition, said event organizer Mark Buccino. “It’s an important day for our faith, we all have one thing in common on that day.” This is Buccino’s second year organizing the event and he has been participating since he was 10 years old. The ceremony signifies the Passion of Christ and helps prepare parishioners for Easter. Every year, a different church hosts the event rain or shine and the walk features the same cross provided in 1985 by Tom Flood, a former organizer of the event. The cross weighs about 57 kilograms and is 4.8 metres long by 2.4 metres wide. People take turns carrying the cross between destinations in groups of about 10 and significant scriptures are read at

The 28th annual Walk of the Cross will start at noon on March 29 at St. Paul Anglican Church, located at 20 Young Rd. The walk is open to all denominations. every designated stop. “As you carry the cross and feel the weight, you are reminded why you are doing it,” said Buccino. This year, Glen Cairn United Church will host the event and Father John Bridges, pastor of St. Paul Anglican Church, will start the event with a short welcoming ceremony. The walk is open to all denominations and offers Kana-

ta residents a unique way of commemorating one of the most important days in the Christian faith. Last year, more than 200 people took part in the Walk of the Cross. “It’s an ecumenical event and a chance for all Christians to come together in worship,” said Buccino.

EMC news - The Canada Pension Plan has embarked on a series of changes that may cause you to rethink when to begin receiving your CPP pension benefits. The amendments are intended to provide more financial flexibility depending on each individual’s chosen retirement path and to encourage Canadians to work longer.. That’s why these changes provide greater incentives for those willing to work past the traditional retirement age and significant reductions for those taking CPP benefits before age 65. Some of the changes are: • The work cessation rule has been eliminated. Now, starting at age 60, you can continue working and still receive CPP benefits. • The earnings drop-out provision has been changed. Under the old rules, if you retired at age 65, you could drop out seven of your lowest earning years from age 18 to 65 when you were eligible to contribute to CPP. Now, that drop-out period has increased to 7.5 years and will increase again, to eight years, in 2014.

New website provides forum for parents Kids in Kanata aims to connect local moms and dads Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

SUBMITTED

Katimavik mother Jennifer Perlin launched the website, Kids in Kanata (kidsinkanata. com) on March 13 as a forum for local parents. She and her daughter, Lucy, are seen at the computer while her husband Michael and son Konrad play in the background. product reviews. “The goal in the idea is to help promote Kanata and Kanata entrepreneurs,” she said. She will be blogging about the importance of prioritizing marriage, the “princess phenomenon” in girls, body image and advertising, and its effects. Perlin, who works for the government, said she plans on continuing to post and update Kids in Kanata when she goes back to work. “I love being at home with them but I do love being a working mom as well,” she said. “As people become more aware with what’s going on with it we could have some people buddy up (and contribute).” Kids in Kanata is offering a chance to win a gift certificate to Jask Salon

and Day Spa for everyone who registers on the website. “Other moms ... they’re telling me what a great concept they find it,” said Perlin. “I’ve been really pleased with the positive feedback.”

EMC news - A new website is providing parents in Kanata with a one-stop shop for all things relating to motherhood, fatherhood and children. Jennifer Perlin launched the website Kids in Kanata (kidsinkanata. com) to provide a community forum for busy mothers and fathers. “It’s really exciting. The feedback has been incredible,” said Perlin, who launched the website on March 13. Perlin, who lives in Katimavik with her husband Michael and their two children, developed the idea for a web-based community when she was on maternity leave with her now two-year-old son Konrad. She spent her downtime surfing the Internet looking for resources. “There wasn’t any one place that satisfied what I was looking for. So I got a little bit frustrated,” she said. Now on maternity leave with her six-month-old daughter Lucy, Perlin said she buckled down and created Kids in Kanata. “It’s now or never in my eyes,” she said. “Having those extra hours during the day I figured I really got to get on this.” Perlin said her website is different from other parenting sites because it offers local solutions and a forum where parents can talk, ask questions and share their experiences. “A forum, that’s the one thing that Ottawa doesn’t seem to have anymore, just in talking to different people in the area,” she said. “If you want to know about ‘When should I start feeding solids to my child,’ you could post that question on the forum and have someone answer who lives within a kilometre of you.” The website will also offer contests and a local events page. “When your child is sleeping, nursing (the website is) something to go to that’s fun and relevant,” said Perlin. She said she plans on updating the blog three to four times a week with posts about parenting, lighthearted and serious issues, and book and

A fresh look at consultation

I

t’s good news when the city rethinks a process that’s been around for decades. Public consultations deserve a new look. Until now, the city has come to the public with a proposal and then asked people to react. It leaves residents with the impression that the city has already made up its mind about what it wants to do and is just going through the motions of consulting. Michael Powell from the Dalhousie Community Association has commented that city consultations are “like always being asked what you want on your hot dog, but never what you might like to eat.� There is also a sentiment among members of the public that consultations happen too late in the process to make a difference. Residents find out about a new city bylaw, p[olicy or program after it has been finessed with city staff and politicians behind the scenes. The city really needs to look at not just how it seeks input, but when. There is also value to tapping a diverse selection of people so that the true diversity of public opinion is captured. Too often, community-level

consultations, as well as public open houses at city hall, are like a reunion. The same people come out for everything. Mostly its because they’re engaged and they have time – retirees are one example – but it’s also because the processes, mechanisms and jargon are confusing and off-putting for outsiders and people who are new to civic engagement. The city needs to find a way to get all those voices into the process. Formal meetings alone don’t do the job. While on-the-street interviews may not capture opinions of people who have given an issue considerable thought, they are grassroots ways to find out how people who pass by a particular property feel about development plans. It would also be easy to phone people who live near a proposed building site, and then call them back after they’ve had a chance to consider the plans. To expand the circle of input even further, the city could involve students at local schools. After all, it’s the kids of today who will often have to live with the results of both good and bad planning deicions for decades to come.

Tackling yet another pesky first world problem

Y

ou’re probably familiar with the term “first world problem.� It refers to the kinds of things people living in a privileged country like ours worry about. Not having enough room in the garage for the second car would be an example. If you look for people with first world problems you find them all around you – in the letters to the editor, on the phone-in shows, at parties, in politics. There are people whose wi-fi is too slow, who don’t get enough cable channels, who don’t get a tax break for their private school fees. Canada as a whole is beset with first world problems. Anyone who travels to less privileged countries is always struck by this on returning. You have just come from a place where people are not free and don’t have enough to eat and you pick up the Canadian newspaper and find that our politicians are arguing about the constitution. That’s a first world problem. Some places don’t have constitutions. In some places, arguing about the constitution gets you locked up. All of this is by way of introduction to the fact that I don’t like the new money. Those new polymer 50s and 20s are too shiny, not to mention slippery. Mind you, W.L. Mackenzie

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town King, who is on the 50, was pretty slippery himself. They don’t feel like money. They don’t even smell like money. There have been questions about the authenticity of the maple leaf. And so on and so on. First world problem: many people in the world would like to have new Canadian 50s and 20s. Still ... you can see right through the new money if you hold it up to the light. Does that seem like money to you, something you can see through? What it seems like is play money. The kids see these shiny pieces of not-exactly-paper lying around that they can see through and they want to play with them. They are more fun to play with than the Published weekly by:

Canadian Tire money which, by comparison, now seems more like real money. So does Monopoly money, come to think of it. First world problem: Canadian kids play with money. Not too much was heard of all this until fairly recently. That’s because the first new plastic – well, polymer – bills issued in 2011 were 100s and 50s. The plastic 20 didn’t hit until last November, which is when ordinary people began to notice that the new bills stuck together, didn’t always work in vending machines and smelled wrong. In a related development, a poll reported in the Globe and Mail says that the people most likely to be happy with the new money are people with high income and education. Seventy-three per cent of people earning more that $100,000 a year were happy with the new money. And why not? If you had lots of 100s and 50s, you’d be happy too. Somehow your displeasure over bills sticking together would vanish if the bills sticking together were 100s. The Bank of Canada’s official explanation for the use of shiny money is that it will last longer (not that many of us will have it around long enough to notice) and that it is harder to counterfeit. That, you can understand.

Also, the new 20 depicts the Vimy Memorial, which is a worthy thing to do. However, this could have been done without converting everything to plastic. Printing it up on good old paper would have done the trick. (By the way, do you remember when the previous version of the paper bill was introduced? That was 2004. It was durable, had cotton in it, and hard to counterfeit.) More is to come. By the end of the year, new polymer 5s and 10s will be issued. Then the complaining will begin all over again. As Canadians know, it’s tough living in the first world.

f you’ll forgive me for my testiness as of late, I hadn’t been on a vacation in 18 months. Last week, that all changed. “Are you going to Florida?�

one lovely person asked me over the phone. Others, recently returned from Cuba, Mexico, Europe and the like all had similar questions.

“Nope,� I replied. “I’m looking for somewhere to refresh and rejuvenate.� While tropical beaches and hot sun, Disney cruises and walks around Paris sound exquisite in some ways – I wasn’t really keen on keeping up with the Joneses for my vacation. In fact, it was the Joneses I wanted to get away from. I wanted to “get away from it all.� A lovely person, who shall remain nameless, offered us her mountain chalet at the bottom of a ski hill in Quebec. It was an hour-long drive, perfect for a couple of parents who don’t see the journey as part of the vacation experience, at least not when there are three children

We turned off television and video games and cell phones and the Internet, keeping our eyes and ears available for the natural world in our midst. Each morning, we awoke to fresh mountain air, excited for what the day would bring. Exploring the trails with our snowshoes, we saw early signs of spring: Water trickling under frozen creeks; birds looking for seed; frozen waterfalls embedded in eroding cliffs.

Coyotes an issue on local trails To the editor, Our neighbour goes cross

country skiing in the winter and jogging in the summer along the National Capital Commission’s Old Quarry Trail and enjoys seeing the deer. Recently they noticed there are fewer and fewer, but

they were truly disturbed to come across a coyote den and met a very unwelcome reception. The other day was even worse. There was a dead deer with blood all around and parts

Evita Roche is convening an initial organizing meeting for a new support group. Possible content for future meetings: legal information, emotional support, practical tips, storytelling, divorce coaching, separation rituals, videos, etc.

If people become reluctant to use the area it defeats the purpose of having a park. If the government thinks that this is natural selection, think twice. Here is their reply “We would also strongly urge you and your neighbour to visit the Ministry of Natural Resources website at the link below, as it provides a wide variety of educational information regarding coyotes, including encounters, biology and behaviour, and

protecting your property.” Now if that isn’t passing the buck what is? The NCC tells you that the province sets the rules. Is this park for people or coyotes? Is the government’s approach to nature having children see deer torn apart and various body parts strewn all over the place? Owen Prince Kanata See LETTERS, page 11

Quality family time more important than location

When: Wednesday, March 27, 6:30 pm Where: Downtown Ottawa (precise location to be sent to all registrants)

Continued from page 9

Dinner will be provided. Bring your ideas! This initial meeting is free, but registration is required. Contact Evita at evitar@sympatico.ca

Evita Roche was Canada’s first full-time lawyer-mediator. Since 1979, she has helped over 5,000 couples mediate the issues arising from their separation. In the 1990’s Evita was a Professor of family law and mediation at the University of Ottawa Law School, where she received the first Excellence in Teaching Award. Her private practice is restricted to separation and divorce mediation, and she frequently delivers seminars on subjects related to family law.

of the body strewn around. His fear is that with the reduction in useable land for the deer it will be easier for the coyotes to hunt them. The next logical step is for the coyotes to hunt other animals when the deer migrate. That has happened in the country areas nearby where they attack domestic pets for food. Another couple was walking their dog and was stalked by two coyotes and they did a hasty retreat from the park.

There were toboggans and downhill skiing and chili in the slow cooker. One day it snowed and the signs of spring were hidden under a blanket of white. There were big, fat flakes and small icy ones. The mountain looked freshly winterized when we awoke on the third morning to sub-zero temperatures and a land of ice. Every day there was sun. One day it rained for a little while. But well-prepared with our rain gear and hiking boots, our winter boots and our balaclavas, we went out in all weather. In the rain, the rocks beside the creek exposed themselves as semi-precious stones, a rich collection for a six-year-old. In the warm afternoon sun – warm as in 5 C – birds of prey squawked overhead. In the evenings, we opted out of using the electronics at hand. Instead, we raided the

games cupboard – you know, the old-fashioned kind: board games. As a family, we laughed over cups of hot tea and chocolate, playing Skip-Bo and Scrabble, and trying to think of funny definitions for words in Balderdash. We spent quality time talking of our adventures and our plans for the rest of the vacation. And when the sun went down, we tucked ourselves into flannel sheets and wool blankets and padded quilts, sleeping peacefully until morning – even the baby, most nights. Nope, it wasn’t Florida or Cuba. It wasn’t Mexico or Europe. But it was one of the richest vacations I’ve had. I came away with a clear head, a clear idea of what I wanted for my family, my finances and my business. In nature, I was restored. Amazing that the best vacation I could have imagined was less than an hour away. It was worth the world in gold.

Street renaming for public safety

Correction: A letter published in the March 14 edition about the yield sign on Stonehaven Drive at the Eagleson Road intersection slowing rush hour trafďŹ c was printed with an incorrect headline.

To the editor, Re: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Renaming city streets,â&#x20AC;? letter to the editor, March 7, KKS. I noted the opinion piece in the paper on the matter of correcting street name anomalies. I wish to clarify certain points. Ms. Seymour is correct that 911 is able to locate the caller using a land line, whether or not the caller is able to complete the call. However, this is not the case for cellphones which are of concern given a higher proportion of the calls now coming in from them and the inability to locate the caller should he/she not be able to complete the call. Pierre Poirier, chief security and emergency management of the city, advises that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the ability of cellphone providers to geo-locate cell phones is still rather primitive (not robust or reliable). The issue will not be resolved until there is a location accuracy performance standard which may still be years away. The issue of similar and similar sounding street names remains a public safety concern for ďŹ rst responders. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to resolving this issue is important to our community.â&#x20AC;? Ms. Seymour is also correct that there are costs involved in changing street names and this is why staff was directed to prioritize the list of streets. The list was whittled down to 110. Costs depend on the number of street name blades and the size of signs.

Comparing the Second Line Road renaming to that of Richmond Road in Bells Corners is not an apples-toapples comparison. The Richmond Road street name change was not part of the 110 but rather a special business identiďŹ cation initiative and additional funding was sought to cover the large overhead highway signs. The cost for changing the street name blades for Second Line Road will be substantially lower and the funding comes from the regular sign replacement program. Finally, a review of the related bylaws is underway to improve the system for assigning street names for new developments (some of the names of newer streets were approved before amalgamation before consistent and clear criteria was established and it is these names that appear to be discordant with the present bylaws). A report will be presented to city council this fall. Council has also directed staff to come back with a plan to expedite resolving the remaining streets. That report is scheduled for May.

EMC news - The emerald ash borer has moved into the community and a meeting this month will discuss the options on dealing with the destructive insect. The Kanata Lakes Community Association and Ecology Ottawa will host a meeting on March 27 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Mlacak Centre, hall D, to discuss the options to save Kanata’s canopy. “The emerald ash borer is becoming a fairly large issue as they move into Kanata,” said Adam Caldwell, vice-president of environment for the KLCA. “The meeting will be answering a lot of questions, dealing with misconceptions.” The meeting will also give communities the opportunity to co-ordinate efforts to reduce the impact of the emerald ash borer. The city is monitoring, injecting or cutting down ash trees on public land, but homeowners are responsible for treating or removing any tree on private property. “We’ll be talking about the financial aspect as well,” said Caldwell. “It can put a 10 to 15 per cent dent in your property value, losing a large tree like that.” Aside from the financial aspect, a healthy

It’s been 10 years since members of South Nepean United and the Osgoode-Rideau Soccer Association approved the merger that gave life to Ottawa South United Soccer Club, and set out on an ambitious quest to become the best youth club in Ottawa and amongst the best in Ontario and Canada.

“We thought if we followed the principles and vision we setup, that it would realistically take more than 15 years,” recalls OSU Founding President Bill Michalopulos, who remains President of what’s now the only Ottawa based club to: earn a top position in the provincial soccer club Terra rankings, a Gold Level Club Excellence Award from the Ontario Soccer Association and win a couple of gold medals in North America’s most prestigious showcase tournament; the Disney showcase, while helping to place scores of soccer players in universities and colleges on soccer scholarships in North America.

“By any tangible measurement, I think, thanks to our volunteers and full time operating staff, we’ve exceeded our vision in record time,” Michalopulos adds.

OSU hit many key milestones along the way to its 10th anniversary, including establishing strategic alliances with leading clubs in the U.S. and Europe – the Dallas Texans and Everton FC – and providing a dedicated and qualified staff approach to running a club in order to provide better programs.

“We still depend on our volunteers who are a key link to our community, and we’re very thankful we have our volunteers to carry most of the load,” Michalopulos notes, adding that those same people recognize the indispensable value of having full-time staff such as Jim Lianos, Club General Manager since almost Day 1.

Emerald ash borer a destructive beetle Continued from page 13

The emerald ash borer is a nonnative beetle that feeds under the bark of ash trees. According to the city’s website, the insect has an average life span of 12 months, but can survive for up to two years. The larvae feed under the bark of ash trees, disrupting the circulation of water and nutrients, eventually killing the tree. Once the beetle matures, it chews

“We knew that a completely volunteer-based club was not a sustainable model if one really wanted to improve the delivery of soccer and be efficient,” Michalopulos emphasizes. “We knew we had to ‘professionalize’ some aspects of the club while retaining the right type of genuinely soccer-loving and experienced volunteer Board of Directors in order to maximize resource efficiency, maintain value for money and to make sure that our soccer playing youth could be the best they could be. “We were able to put together a sustainable environment for excellence. On a grand level, we have simply pushed soccer forward in Ottawa and significantly improved the level of play of our youth. That’s our biggest accomplishment.”

A major project – which now stands as a physical symbol of the club’s progress – was the construction of six playing fields in Manotick to accommodate a growing membership base that’s now reached 6,500 – from youth recreational/developmental soccer to competitive/elite, through to adult & sr. levels.

Within two years, a home clubhouse will be built at George Nelms Sports Park, a further signal of the bright future that lies ahead for OSU.

Moving top players onto the next level is an OSU trademark, with over 80 players receiving scholarships to play university and college soccer in Canada and the U.S., and others recruited into pro team academies. Without discounting the tremendous success OSU has achieved in becoming a force locally, provincially and throughout North America, perhaps the biggest source of pride is seeing the deeper impact the club has made on members’ lives over 10 years.

“We’re a huge part of the community. You walk around in the summer and every field is being used by the club and you see soccer players all over the place,” observes founding board member Rene Braendli. “It’s been a fantastic journey, but this is not the end. We’re still pushing ahead and we’ve still got to do better. We cannot stand still.”

EMC news - Healthcare watchdog groups are demanding answers about staffing cuts at the Ottawa Hospital. The Ontario Health Coalition, its national counterpoint and the Ontario public service workersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; union told media on March 12 that the hospital and the agency that oversees it, the Champlain Local Health Integration Network, did not follow the proper procedure or assess the impact of closing the Riverside campus endoscopy unit or cutting 1,500 cataract surgeries annually to deal with a $31-million annual budget shortfall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are deeply concerned about the depth of cuts and the amount of privatization,â&#x20AC;? said Natalie Mehra, director of the Ontario Health Coalition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the first case we have seen of a hospital purposefully offloading hospital services to private entities.â&#x20AC;? The hospital has not said how cutting 5,000 endoscopies will affect access to that service, nor how cutting the equivalent of 290 full-time staff will impact the services the hospital offers. And Rick Janson, campaign officer for the public servantsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; union, OPSEU, said there are more cuts to come. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is our understanding that this is just the beginning,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding the hospital has begun a review of its outpatient services. Mehra said the cuts are â&#x20AC;&#x153;arbitrary, without proper oversight.â&#x20AC;? Under the act that governs the local health networks, they are required to consult the public and have the support of their own boards if they wish to transfer services to another entity (either private or not-for-profit), Mehra said. She argued the cuts to the Ottawa Hospital fall into this category, called an â&#x20AC;&#x153;integration,â&#x20AC;? but neither the hospital nor the Champlain network undertook any public consultation or discussion about the cuts. According to Mehra, the Champlain networkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board of directors did not pass a motion to approve a transfer of services. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more unclear than ever to patients where they are supposed to access services,â&#x20AC;? she added. But the head of the Champlain network says the agency followed all the rules. The cutbacks donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t count as an â&#x20AC;&#x153;integration,â&#x20AC;? so no formal consultation or board decision was required, said Chantale LeClerc, the networkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive director. At the moment, the three watchdog groups have asked the Champlain network to disclose a full list of services that will be cut, transferred and/or privatized, as well as any evaluation that was used to determine the impact of the cuts. The coalition had not yet received a response the day after sending the letter. If the Champlain network refuses to provide the information they are asking for, the watchdog groups said they might take their complaints to the ministry of health. See CUTS, page 17

Cuts moving system out of public hands, advocates say Continued from page 16

Janson said OPSEU has not decided whether to take legal action on behalf of the employees who have received layoff notices, because the union is

waiting to see if the hospital will “play by its own rules” and offer those employees a chance to keep doing their jobs with the new provider of that health service. Michael McBane, execu-

The conference will also provide time for celebration with several â&#x20AC;&#x153;bragging sessionsâ&#x20AC;? scheduled throughout the four days that draw attention to the success of different youth centres. Although Voakes says the opening evening always has a lot of energy and excitement, he would choose the dinner scheduled for Saturday evening as the eventâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highlight. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the ultimate bragging session,â&#x20AC;? he said. The evening will also include speeches by former members of youth centres. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can tell youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been around for a long time when former members come in with children,â&#x20AC;? said Voakes. Although registration ofďŹ cially closed March 12, the conference will still welcome last minute requests to attend.

EMC news - For four days members of youth centres and organizations from across Canada will gather in Ottawa to celebrate their past and plan for their future. The Unite and Ignite conference will take place at the Travelodge Hotel and Conference Centre, on Carling Avenue, from March 21 to 25. All 10 provinces and the territories will be represented by youth centres from inner cities, rural areas and remote Northern communities, says Les Voakes, executive director for Youth Centres Canada, the conference host. Voakes, who expects about 250 people representing 60 or-

ganizations to be present, has been with Youth Centres Canada since it began as a project under Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Drug Strategy 20 years ago. Since then the Youth Centres Canada has grown from a local project to a nationwide organization, with ofďŹ ces in Merrickville, Ottawa, Toronto and Edmonton. The organization held its ďŹ rst annual conference 15 years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I never thought it would be what it is,â&#x20AC;? said Voakes â&#x20AC;&#x153;people picked up on it.â&#x20AC;? Youth Centres Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s purpose is to help youth and youth groups in rural areas, towns and small cities. This year the Unite and Ignite conference will represent all of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coasts with guests from Yellowknife, Iqaluit, P.E.I. and Vancouver, says Voakes. The gathering will focus on discussion and planning aimed at some of the key issues that affect youth. Some issues include violence in womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lives, bullying, suicide, mental health and substance abuse.

Mayor Jim Watson is looking for the same sweetheart deal that Toronto got when it comes to building a new casino in Ottawa.

Watson could pull plug on Ottawa casino Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Mayor Jim Watson is set to pull the plug on a new Ottawa casino if he doesn’t get the same sweetheart deal offered to Toronto. The mayor sent a letter to that effect to Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation chairman Paul Godfrey on March 15 after it was revealed that

R0011978292-0321

OLG will offer a preferential revenue sharing agreement for a proposed gaming centre in Toronto. “I strongly disagree with the OLG’s suggestion that it is planning to introduce preferential revenue sharing for the City of Toronto that, by function, would discriminate against all other Ontario municipalities,” Watson wrote in the letter. But in a statement issued

later that afternoon, Premier Kathleen Wynne insisted “there will be no special deal for Toronto.” Wynne said the OLG is taking the same approach in Toronto as it is in the rest of Ontario. Watson’s letter was prompted by a report in the Globe and Mail revealing that OLG was planning to give Toronto a sweetheart deal that would give that city more than double its share of gaming revenue if Toronto allows a casino to be built on its waterfront. Toronto stands to receive $50 to $100 million in hosting fees, according to the Globe report. Wynne said OLG’s approach to hosting fees will be the same in all the areas being considered for a new casino, but Toronto’s fee would “reflect the size and scale that global gaming companies have confirmed is possible in (that) city.” “If the same capital investment and job potential are possible elsewhere, the same hosting fees would be generated,” Wynne wrote. In a letter to the City of Ottawa last November, OLG said a revenue-sharing agreement for Ontario gaming facilities “will not be changed,” even if the facility is relocated within the gaming zone. See TORONTO, page 22

Toronto deal to discriminate against Ottawa: mayor That would be the case for Ottawa if a new casino is approved here. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s negotiations

with OLG were based on the understanding that the funding formula would stay the same for all Ontario municipalities, Watson wrote in his letter.

OLG is hoping to open five new casinos in different zones in Ontario as part of a â&#x20AC;&#x153;modernizationâ&#x20AC;? strategy. Toronto is the only affected municipality that has yet

to vote on whether to accept a new facility. On Oct. 10, Ottawa city council voted 19-5 to â&#x20AC;&#x153;signal its interestâ&#x20AC;? in a possible new gambling facility somewhere in the city. Actual proposals from private developers willing to build a casino in Ottawa wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t arrive until this fall.

The city stands to gain more than $1 million extra from a new slots revenue sharing agreement with OLG signed last fall. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still unclear whether that funding formula would also apply to a new casino. During a city council meeting last November, city clerk

effect April 1 (2013) and then if and when a new casino is built, that will be the same funding agreement with the City of Ottawa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nothing changes.â&#x20AC;? Over the past five years, the city has received between $4.3 and $4.4 million annually from 1,250 slot machines at the Rideau Carleton Raceway. The new agreement would add $1.3 million more per year to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coffers if slot revenue remains the same. The agreement means the city gets 5.25 per cent of first $65 million of net slot revenue, three per cent on next $135 million, 2.5 per cent of the next $300 million and half a per cent of the remainder of net slot revenue.

and solicitor Rick Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor assured city councillors that a new money-distribution agreement for the slots at Rideau Carleton Raceway would not be binding on a new facility, as the OLG looks for a private developer to build a new casino in Ottawa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have a new arrangement and a new agreement if council decides on a new casino,â&#x20AC;? Mayor Jim Watson said. That understanding was based on discussions he has had with OLG over the past couple of weeks, Watson said. Not so, said OLG spokesman Tony Bitonti. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(The current agreement) will apply to a new casino as well,â&#x20AC;? Bitonti said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The new agreement takes

Power of imagination eases childhood fears

A

t an early age, I developed an ability I thought at the time saved me from many a disappointment, worry and even heartache, and put me in another world. It took a lot of patience, a great deal of practice and much trial and error, but when I had perfected the exercise, it gave me great satisfaction and peace of mind. Through deep concentration and forcing my mind away from an unpleasant situation, I was able to move my thoughts from the source of my anguish and into a more pleasant place. This time of year, there were many occasions for me to put into practice this talent I had developed. The ice was gone from the Bonnechere, the current was fast and the mud pout could be seen from the shore. The three brothers had been watching the spring breakup for weeks, and now the time had finally come for them to do some fishing. I hated the very thought of the method used by the brothers to catch the fish. Using spears, some of which were made from a pitchfork from

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories the barn, they straddled an old tree that had fallen across the river at a narrow point and stabbed them without mercy. When the mud pout became part of our supper, Mother, aware of my squeamish stomach, would put a slice of meat on my plate, or let me have scrambled eggs. Then, as I sat at the supper table, I would put into place my talent. I would picture in my mind pieces of bologna, my very favourite treat, sitting on the platter of mud pout in front of me. Even when my tormentor of a brother Emerson would smack his lips for my benefit, I was able to change, in my mind, the picture of the mud pout and turn it into bologna. This talent was put to good use at the Northcote School on more than one occasion too. If my rival Marguirite was getting on my nerves,

which happened at least once a day, I would picture her in my mind with homemade flour bag underwear under her skirt. She made sure every girl at the Northcote School knew that her underpinnings came from Walker’s Store in Renfrew. I got so good at this trick of imagination, that I could even see Pride of the Valley written across her seat. Emerson often said I was scared of my own shadow and that wasn’t all that far from the truth. This escape talent came to good use on Sundays too. We sat in the front pew at church. Our minister, a giant of a man, would come swooping down the aisle and climb into the little cubicle raised above the floor, scanning the congregation before he said a word. I was sure he was singling me out with his eyes, and

for all the world like a large black bird. That’s when I would look over his head to a spot on the blue painted wall. I would pretend I was an angel, and my mission in life, in my mind, was to help the starving Armenians. These were the people Mother always said

we took the food right out of their mouths if we didn’t eat everything on our plates. I thought they lived in Arnprior. So when I took on the role in my mind’s eye of this little floating angel high in our church, I pictured myself doing good deeds. The fear of the minister vanished.

EMC lifestyle - Spring is here and soon enough we’ll see the early varieties of annual plants start to appear in garden centres, providing reassurance there will be warmer days ahead. After a long cold winter, the cheerful colours and varied textures of annual plants are welcome additions to gardens, baskets and planters. It’s important to choose your annuals wisely. Annuals can be costly and considering the growing season in our region, it is important to choose plants that will thrive in your environment and provide the desired effect. Master gardener Diane McClymont Peace will present “The Beauty of Annuals” at the April 2 meeting of the Kanata-March Horticultural Society. Peace will discuss different uses for annuals, how to choose the right plants for your property based on soil conditions, sun versus shade, and what performs well in containers and borders. The meeting runs from 7:30 to 9 p.m. at the Old Town Hall, 821 March Rd. The entrance to the Old Town Hall is on Klondike Road across from the Shopper’s Drug Mart. There is a $5 fee for guests. Our society members are gardeners from novice to expert in experience, who share a common love of plants, gardening and take pride in their home’s landscaping.

Irish society hosts celebration for Rideau Canal workers Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

Kevin Dooley plays traditional Irish music at the Rideau Canal Workers Designation at St. Brigidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Centre of the Arts on March 14. The event welcomed dignitaries, families and friends to commemorate the immigrant workers who helped build the canal. Two plaques marking the contribution will be placed at both ends of the canal in August by Parks Canada. ficially announced it would formally recognize the construction workers who built the canal. The evening saw Mayor Jim Watson, Ottawa Centre MPP Yasir Naqvi and representatives from the Irish Embassy in attendance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to thank all those individuals who worked so hard to get those workers designated,â&#x20AC;? Watson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are fortunate to have individuals who worked so hard and

they deserve our eternal thanks for recognizing the workers. A job well done and I thank you.â&#x20AC;? The celebration began with a look back at the history of the building of the canal, featuring poems from local authors, who helped the crowd fall back in time to when bricks were being laid and lives were being lost. Irish Ambassador Ray Bassett, was unable to attend the celebra-

tion, but sent a letter applauding the committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efforts and the official designation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Rideau Canal is a monumental achievement realized by these workers,â&#x20AC;? said a statement read at the event by Bassettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assistant Caoimhe Bennis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The inclusion of these workers is a testament of their hard work.â&#x20AC;? Bassettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s words had the crowd erupt with applause and cheers.

Once official ceremonies were complete, it became an old fashion good time, with music provided by Kevin Dooley and friends. Two plaques will be placed on 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 English and French.

EMC news - It was an old-fashion good time as members of the Irish society, family and friends gathered to officially celebrate the designation of the contribution made by Irish workers to the construction of the Rideau Canal. St. Brigidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Centre of the Arts was packed on March 14 at a celebration of the official designation from Parks Canada. While the event was months in the making, it has taken years for a dedicated group of people to actually reach the point where the placement of two commemorative plaques at either end of the canal will become a reality. Sean McKenny, president of the Ottawa and District Labour Council, made a special point to thank the hard work of his friend Kevin Dooley for working for more than five years to reach this point. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A tip of the hat is to a friend of mine, and a friend of all of yours, who rightfully demanded the workers be recognized,â&#x20AC;? McKenny said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thank you, Kevin.â&#x20AC;? The Rideau Canal was built between 1826 and 1832, a Herculean effort that saw thousands of Irish and French immigrants laying the brickwork for the world-famous waterway. It is estimated that 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 a ad hoc 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, but on Nov. 2, 2012, Parks Canada of-

Condors hockey spreads wings Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - To live the Canadian dream is most kid’s fantasy, growing up playing hockey to eventually make it to the big leagues and play for their favourite NHL team. For some kids and families, the dream is a bit more modest. The Canadian dream for some parents is to just sit in the arena stands on a Saturday, sipping Tim Hortons, while the kids skate around the rink playing a game. And up until a few years ago, for families of many disabled children in the region, that’s all it was: a dream. But for the last year and a half, parents of 17 disabled youth have been able to get up on Saturday mornings and drive to a rink in Rockland so their kids can take to the ice with the Capital City Condors, an organization founded five years ago in Kanata by Jim and Shana Perkins. “We don’t understand how much it brings to the family,” Jim Perkins said. “It’s part of our culture as a country. Even if it’s a special needs group, the kids love it.” See KIDS LEARN, page 33

Kids learn to skate, have fun on the ice The qualifying details to get on the team are fairly simple. If kids can’t qualify to play for any of the other teams in the city, they can join the Condors. “Hockey is Canada’s sport and every child growing up has dreamt of playing hockey and playing in the NHL. It’s no different for these kids,” said Condors East head coach Jeff Kelly. “Up until this program came around, they couldn’t even participate in a regular hockey program.” Jim went to help his fatherin-law with special hockey while visiting in Cambridge, Ont. and the family decided to find an equivalent organization in Ottawa to get involved with back home. Problem was, there wasn’t one. The program in Kanata has grown so much, that last year an east-end Condors group started up at Canadian International Hockey Academy Arena in Rockland, though most players come from Orléans and east Ottawa. The league is home to 17 players and 17 individual stories, said coach Kelly, a retired police officer from Orléans. “I could tell you a story on each and every one of them, and that’s the thing – every week they continue to do things that amaze me.” One player came to the league unable to skate without grasping a chair on the ice for some time. He worked with coaching staff over the season, and one day let go of the chair, skating on his own from the blue line to the red line. “He said, ‘Isn’t this awesome? Look at me, I’m awesome,’” Kelly said. “So now he’s known as Mr. Awesome, and he has not stepped on ice with a chair ever since.” Mr. Awesome is just one of the kids who have had their dreams come true. “We have little guys that think they’re going to make the Senators,” Perkins said. “They have the same dreams as every other kid.” Perkins said many of the children on the team have spent years watching classmates and siblings off to hockey tournaments and practices, unable to do the same. One player’s parents were even told that he would never walk. And now, when jersey day rolls around at school, the kids can don their Condors jerseys. This year, players were able to do the same thing as many of their classmates during a busy hockey weekend and participate in the Bell

Capital Cup, which ran a special hockey division this year. There is a wide range of ages and abilities stepping on the ice every Saturday. Some kids have physical disabilities, like one player who was born without a hip socket, while others have developmental disabilities. It’s taught coaches to roll with the punches. Two kids want to play goalie? Five kids all want the number of their hero, regular volunteer Kyle Turris? It’s all ok. “What determines success for us, it’s that they’re still smiling,” Perkins said. The current challenge is balancing players who are getting too old to play with some of the younger children,

but don’t want to leave their Condors family. They’ve split the groups up in Kanata, but a separate league for older players and adults is the next step for the growing organization. Kelly would like to see the east Condors move to a more central location in the future, but also grow in player numbers as Kanata has. “There are a number of families who probably aren’t aware of this amazing program that’s out there,” he said. Kelly said any parents interested in signing up their kids should visit www.capitalcitycondors.com and contact Perkins and himself to see if it’s a good fit.

“They have their health issues and their challenges, but for the hour and a half they’re at the hockey rink, it’s like their NHL,” Kelly said. “There’s something magical that happens every Saturday.”

Police prepare to launch race data project Ottawa police service

EMC news - The Ottawa police service is preparing to launch its traffic stop race data collection project. A series of final steps and preparations are currently underway to launch the project including: • Testing the data collections process • Officer training and a public

awareness campaign • Finalizing the method and study design with the Ontario Human Rights Commission and the team of experts from York University. “This is a significant project. We want to ensure a meaningful study with ongoing police (and) community dialogue,” said Insp. Pat Flanagan, Ottawa police project lead.

A significant amount of consultation and ongoing dialogue has been undertaken for this project. Those comments, ideas and feedback are being incorporated into the planning for this project. To prepare for the project launch, the human rights commission and the police services board are extending the launch date by two months, to no later than June 27.

“This extra time will help ensure that the best possible data is collected. It will also provide sufficient time to consider and incorporate the feedback that has been received so far from the public and officers,” said Barbara Hall, chief commissioner of the human rights commission. A report on the project will be presented at the May 27 meeting of the police board.

I hope everyone had a safe and fun March Break and St. Patrick’s Day. Although both annual events are a sign of the warm weather of Spring drawing close, they are also a warning that the Spring melting season is near. I would like to ask all residents to help city crews to keep the catch basins clear on their street. Any blockage created by ice or debris leaves melted snow with nowhere to flow, and can cause mild flooding. If we all work together, we can ensure your streets remain clear, and avoid any unnecessary water build-up. I would like to remind drivers to exercise caution when using the roundabout in Kanata. For a full explanation on how to use a roundabout, as well as helpful vehicle safety tips like “Who has the right of way?” please visit my website and look under the infrastructure tab on www.councillorallanhubley.ca

Week in Review: I hope you had the opportunity to take-in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade on March 16. I had fun joining my City Council colleagues on the City of Ottawa float. On March 18, I spoke to physicians and staff at CHEO as part of the roll-out for their refreshed mission, vision, and strategic direction for the upcoming three years. This was a good reminder of the important work of this world class institution in our community. This week I attended the Annual General Meeting for the Kanata Food Cupboard, which was held at St. Paul’s Anglican Church. I have always been a strong supporter of the crucial service they provide to those in our community in need. To find out how you can donate or volunteer, please visit kanatafoodcupboard.ca

Upcoming Events: April 6, 2013 – Community Breakfast I will be hosting a community breakfast at Don Cherry’s Bar and Grill featuring celebrated journalist and Sun TV personality Brian Lilley as a guest speaker. The cost will be $15.00 per person with all net proceeds being donated to the Kanata Food Cupboard. The breakfast will go from 9:00-11:00am with tickets available at the door. I hope to get a chance at the breakfast to talk to you about the issues that concern you and your family.

Councillor’s Newsletter: We are preparing a quarterly e-newsletter to keep residents informed on activities in the ward and at city hall. To be added to the recipient list, please email my office or visit my website. My latest e-newsletter was sent out earlier this week, if you would like to receive it, please contact my office.

Treatment centre gets cash donation for new building Steph Willems Steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news – Famed restauranteur Dave Smith’s dream of a new building to house his youth treatment centre is close to coming to fruition. With 10 hectares in rural Kanata ready to accept construction of a new 30-bed office and residential complex, the centre’s foundation got a vote of confidence (and large cash donation) from the Rotary Club of West Ottawa last week. Smith was the guest of honour at the March 12 luncheon, where his foundation, chaired by Stephen McGill, was handed a cheque for $25,000. The money was raised through the sale of the 2013 Ottawa Rotary Cash Calendar, which featured photos donated by Ottawa artist Brigitta von Dulong. Annual Cash Calendar sales allow the Rotarians to contribute to humanitarian and educational causes in their community. This is the second year the Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre has been the major beneficiary of the club, with another committed year to follow. “Thank you for providing us the

Thanks to financial donations from community groups and individuals to its foundation, plus ongoing funding from the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care and the Champlain LHIN, the centre is ready to consolidate its facilities. A plot of land just north of Scotiabank Place was selected to be the new home of the centre, which would have two 15-bed residential buildings (one for each gender) as well as offices, common rooms, and recreational space. “Currently we’re operating out of what we always intended to be a temporary situation,” said McGill, who has served as foun-

dation chair for 12 years. “One location means we can be a lot more efficient … It’s the perfect environment for these young people to have.” The centre caters to youth aged 13 to 21 who are experiencing addiction or mental health issues, though often those issues happen concurrently, making treatment challenging. Parents and caregivers can also receive counseling at the facility to increase the odds of long-term recovery. McGill listed the social and financial impact of mental health and addiction issues in Canada, which cost the government $40 billion each year in Canada, and $6.7 billion annually in Ontario alone.

“The encouraging news is that for every dollar spent on treatment, four to seven dollars are saved on health care alone,” said McGill, thanking the Rotary Club for giving the centre heightened credibility through their ongoing support. Dave Smith, who was raised in Lowertown as one of 13 kids, has spent 56 years in the restaurant business in Ottawa, and has been giving back to his community for most of that time. He sees the centre that bears his name as, “Making an investment in our own backyard, which is so important.” Displaying his characteristic sense of humour, Smith thanked the club for their support, but jokingly encouraged them to do-

nate more, adding the rationale, “It’s fun.” “You have no idea how we are able to change these kid’s lives,” said Smith. “We have counselors who are so dedicated to these kids, it’s unbelievable … Thank you for coming on board with us, thank you for the money you donate to us – with your help, we can do unbelievable things. We have the know-how, we have the knowledge … When this new centre comes out of the ground, we’re going to have a lot to cheer about.” Smith and McGill hope work begins this spring on the new centre, as a building process has already been approved and an architect chosen.

Summer art camps allow children to develop their creativity.

Summer art camps: creativity at its best EMC lifestyle - Specialized summer camps are now allowing young artists to develop their passion on an intensive basis. Summer art camps offer classes which are both educational and lots of fun. Children can develop their skills and broaden their interests while being supervised by competent instructors, all in an entertaining atmosphere. There are many different facets to the world of visual arts. At summer camp, young people can learn about kinds of media that they have fewer opportunities to explore at home or school, such as pastels, char-

coal, oil paint, and clay. They acquire theoretical notions and draw inspiration from the great masters of the art world. Some art camps even organize an exhibit at the end of the camp so that friends and family can see all the creations. Theatre is a great way to break out of one’s shell. At summer camp, children will be able to set aside their shyness and learn to express themselves in public. They will improve their memorization skills and they will also be able to study different actingmethods. Dramatic art includes many

behind-the-scenes activities, and during theatre camp children will be introduced to many of them, including lights and sound, costumes, makeup, and stage design. The performing arts are also a great way for children to discover their talents, develop a work ethic, and build self-esteem. All branches of the performing arts teach students about teamwork. At a performing arts camp, children are given the opportunity to work on a project throughout their stay and then have the very rewarding experience of presenting it in front of family and friends.

Camp Guide 2013

Choose a specialized camp for an unforgettable experience

There are many reasons why you should be thinking about summer now.

Reasons to think about summer now EMC lifestyle - While it may seem like spring has just sprung, summer will be here before you know it. According to the education experts at Oxford Learning, that means that it’s time to start thinking about summer learning plans. “Summer learning is a critical – and often overlooked – part of students’ learning. By planning for summer learning now, parents will help their children avoid the summer learning brain drain,” says Nick Whitehead, founder and CEO of Oxford Learning. He offers these five reasons why planning for summer learning this spring is so important: 1. Summer is going to be here soon. Spring may have just begun, but before long, students will be studying for exams and handing in their final term projects, which means that it’s not too early to think about what kids are going to be doing this summer. 2. Summer can undo what children are learning right now. Without maintaining learning momentum and study skills over the summer break, students easily forget everything they’re working hard to learn right now, which means

that next year, students need to repeat the same workbooks and materials they are learning right now. 3. Summer can have an impact on how children learn next year. After a summer off, it can take kids up to three months to get back into the swing of learning. That represents a huge amount of wasted learning opportunities, and it means that students are not up to their potential from as early as the first day back to class. 4. Kids want to learn in the summer. Research in summer learning studies shows that 56 per cent of students want to be involved in a summer program that helps them keep up with summer schoolwork or prepare for the next grade. 5. Summer programs fill up fast. Most programs are already accepting applications and taking reservations for summer enrolment. Schools, camps, and supplemental tutoring facilities such as Oxford Learning are no exception.

EMC lifestyle - Does your child love the visual arts or maybe expeditions into the wilderness? Is he a sports fanatic? Specialized summer camps will give him the chance to discover a whole new world, broaden his knowledge and develop his talents. Specialized camps offer activities for all ages and for all tastes throughout the summer. Young people can participate in exciting programs involving them in enriching activities within a stimulating and friendly environment.

Whether it involves excursions into the wilderness, an immersion course in a foreign language, a science or music camp, team sports or outdoor activities, there’s something to suit everyone. Summer camps offer events that involve all the campers, outings and cultural visits. The staff also plans alternative activities just in case Mother Nature doesn’t co-operate. Staffed by professionals and students, specialized camps can offer young people the opportunity to develop abilities in

areas in which they could one day build a career. As well as having a lot of fun and meeting other children who have the same interests, these young people acquire a broader knowledge and understanding of many different subjects. Their camp experience is something they will never forget. Reservations have to be made early in the year as these specialized summer camps are very popular and the number of places often limited. So now is the time to make your choice.

EMC lifestyle - Parents who are looking for a specialized camp for their sports-mad children next summer have lots of choice. More and more businesses and summer camp managers have developed expertise in order to offer programs specifically adapted to the expectations of young athletes. By participating in a sports day camp, a child can acquire techniques and knowledge which will be very profitable when the time comes to return to regular activities with the hockey, basketball or volleyball team next fall. Hockey is still one of the most popular sports during the summer. One or two weeks at a specialized summer school will allow young hockey players to develop their abilities and improve their play thanks to the advice and supervision of a qualified team of instructors. Apart from training sessions on the ice, the program usually includes off-ice exercises, video sessions and other recreational activities. Over the years, soccer has gained so much in popularity across the country that many camps now specialize in this sport for its young fans; a great way for players to develop their talents and improve their technique. As well as being able to practise their favourite sport during the summer, fans of golf, tennis, baseball and athletics can also improve their skills at specialized camps.

Sports camps offer children the chance to boost their skills under the watchful eye of experienced instructors. The programming at these camps can vary as to content and often include extracurricular activities. In short, there is no lack of choice for young people in-

terested in a particular sport and who wish to develop their potential while experiencing a wonderful group adventure. Metro Creative Graphics

EMC lifestyle - Here is a list of questions to ask any camp director before you register. Pick and choose the ones that are relevant to you and your child. • Who do you hire as counsellors? Are they experienced? How old are they? Are they certified in CPR and first aid? Have they undergone a criminal record check? • What are your hours of operation and for pre- and post-camp care? Is there an additional cost for extended hours? • What is the ratio of campers to counsellors? Ratios of 8:1 are common. A ratio of 10:1 is probably the most you would want. • Are snacks or a lunch provided? Is the lunch program optional or mandatory? • What do you do on rainy days? Are your facilities air-conditioned? • Do the children swim every day? What are your rules for supervision at the pool? Is there a wading pool for young campers? • What is included in the price of camp? Do you take any field trips? Do you offer any

discounts for multiple registration, multiple weeks? • Can you provide a list of references or testimonials? Word of mouth is the best reference. Ask around and find out where other parents are sending their children. • How are different age groups divided? Are boys and girls divided? Can my child be in the same group as his/her friend? • What if my child doesn’t like the camp? Do you offer a guarantee? What is your cancellation policy? • Where can I find more information about your camp? Do you have a website? • Can I register online? Can I pay by credit card? • Can you accomodate children with special needs? life-threatening allergies? • Which weeks of camp are still available? • How and when will I receive confirmation of my registration?

more, but their levels of attention, enjoyment, and motivation really blast off. In fact, camp is such a terrific community for learning that schools are now following the lead of camps as they look for ways to reach students. Parents have surely noticed that their children are spending much more time in school now working with “manipulatives” (hands-on materials to learn concepts) and “realworld” situations. Kids do stuff like that at camp every five minutes.

R0011968202

1 - Camp leads the way in using the best methods to help children learn and grow.

Camp is a lot more than “something fun for the kids to do when they are out of school.” Actually, camps are outstanding places for children to learn and grow. Why? For over 125 years, camps have been the leader in using the number one key secret to teaching: children learn most from doing. They learn most from hands-on discovery and practice, especially in small groups. The fancy name for this is experiential learning. When children are actively involved in high-participation activities, they not only learn much

0321.R0011983652

EMC lifestyle - People who have attended or worked at a camp know that it is a very special place. Powerful and positive things happen in the camp environment that don’t happen anyplace else. The camp community and culture produce changes in people that are unique and long-lasting. It would be hard to make a complete list of all of the factors that make camp different. Here are five examples:

Kanata Kourier-Standard EMC - Thursday, March 21, 2013 51


Camp Guide 2013

Camp provides many opportunities to learn Continued from page 51

2 - Camp communities remove the typical pressures from school, and support children in a positive atmosphere that cherishes effort and persistence. One fast way to explain the incredible power of camping is in two words: no grades. It is amazing how children blossom when the burdens of constant evaluation and a permanent record are taken off their backs. Achievement is rewarded at camp just like it is at school. But what makes camp a special community is its focus on

celebrating effort. It provides recognition when children try their best even if they don’t succeed right away. In this low-pressure atmosphere, children learn more readily what positive things to say and do when they make mistakes or face challenges. At camp, children learn to be persistent and positive. These values build stronger children. 3 - Camp has distinctive value in preparing children for future success. How do we prepare children for life in a modern world? Key current buzzwords in the workplace are teamwork and

greater responsibility for independent problem-solving. There are higher expectations for employees to get along with others and to think for themselves. Again, camp has been leading the way by creating communities where kids make daily decisions about activities. They are put into situations every hour where how they act and meet their responsibilities will affect everyone else in their groups. It’s important to teach our children to get along with others, especially in an increasingly diverse world. Camps make a unique contribution

here. Camps are communities where children are put into groups with many children that they may not know. This is often not true at school, for example, where children may move from grade to grade with many children from prior classes who may live on the very same block or not much farther. Campers may have a special friend or two in their group, but at most camps the group assignments encourage building new relationships and provide lots of practice in cooperation and compromise. 4 - Camp offers an unequalled variety of opportunities to develop well-rounded children. Camps cut like a laser through the negative expectations and beliefs that can stick to children and hold them back. Each year of a child’s life, he or she finds new things they can accomplish. It’s a tragedy that children often decide what they are good at and not good at when they very young. These early, limiting selfassessments may last through adulthood. When children get more recognition for abilities in, for example, math and athletics than they get for reading and music, then their choice of future activities and how they spend their time will naturally tend to gravitate toward areas in which they have had the greatest success in the past. Like most parents, I want my children to be well-rounded. One of the big reasons my wife and I have sent our children to camps is because they encourage dabbling. Children

Math French

can participate in, learn about, and enjoy a wide variety of activities without any need to be an expert in all of them. Camps offer a fantastic variety of different opportunities throughout every day. I cannot identify any other institution that comes even close to the range of recreational, dramatic, musical, artistic, environmental, and other interest areas that are offered to boys and girls at camp. 5 - Camp combats youth isolation by offering positive and accepting communities. Camp is about belonging; belonging to a group that respects and values each member. The traditions and customs of each different camp are like a secret code that allows those who know it to feel embraced by something unique and very special. Adult camp alumni often return many years later to camp still thrilled by the inside

Time

All Students Need Summer Learning The research is clear: kids who take a complete break from learning in the summer fall behind. They fall behind in math. They fall behind in reading. They lose school motivation.

Summer camps offer a variety of opportunities for kids.

knowledge of camp legends and rituals that continue to inspire loyalty and a sense of connection. Camp is, at its core, about learning how to make positive connections. The directors and staff of camps work hard to create a community that is enormously positive and accepting. Campers are urged to include, not exclude, others. They are praised for choosing new partners and not always the same ones. They are encouraged to respect the differences between people. In an increasingly sarcastic world, camps aim to be an oasis of personal safety where demeaning comments and disrespectful behaviour are not tolerated and children are taught responsible and positive ways to resolve conflicts.

From left, Leesa Franklin and Leesha Cunningham hope to one day offer discounted painting to lowincome seniors whose houses need a touchup. Between the two of them, they cover most of the amalgamated City of Ottawa, but Franklin said a lot of their business comes from new developments in the suburbs of Orléans and Barrhaven.

EMC news - Undercover Boss Canada has inspired two enterprising Ottawa women to be their own bosses. Leesha Cunningham and Leesa Franklin, owners of the Ottawa franchise of Wow 1 Day Painting, wanted to get into business together and were inspired when they saw the offshoot of 1-800-GOT-JUNK on one of their favourite television shows. “We liked the focus of getting everything done in one day and bring professionalism to the painting industry,” Franklin said. Both women come from what they called “non-traditional careers” and plan to use their expertise in their burgeoning business. Franklin worked in the military and in the food service industry, while Cunningham was a drafting technician with Rogers and then went on to be a project co-ordinator for a construction company. The pair did a lot of work to start up the Ottawa franchise – even heading to Vancouver twice for interviews with the corporation. “We really did a lot of research,” Franklin said. “We talked to painters. I really liked the idea of having a franchise but being able to put our touches on it.” Cunningham said some of the contractors she talked to expressed doubt the jobs could be pulled off in one day. “I remember being approached coming out of a store buying supplies and a man we had interviewed before said, ‘there’s no way you’ll be able to do it one day,’” Cunningham said. She added organization and a good crew make it easy. “We hire as many people as we need for the job. Either people we have on staff or people we subcontract to,” Cunningham said. Cunningham said some customers are pleased to be able to deal with women. “When I come out to quote a lot of women said they feel more comfortable with me and don’t feel the need to have their husbands present,” Cunningham said. The customer just has to fill out an appointment card at wow1daypainters. com. The pair started out at their Sandy Hill office in August and are pleased with the growth of their enterprise.
