Loudspeaker Sale

Arnprior Chronicle-Guide Paul Barton started building and selling speakers while he was still in high school in the early 1970s with the goal of producing natural, pleasing sound. PSB (Paul and Sue Barton) have now grown to worldwide distribution with over a thousand dealers. The company is based in Pickering, Ontario and a lot of the R&D is done here in Ottawa at the National Research Council. PSB loudspeakers consistently win awards and rave reviews for delivering high value in each of their prices ranges. Whether you are spending $200.00 per pair or $5000.00 per pair, you can be assured you are getting more than your money’s worth. Paul’s new M4U2 headphones have won several awards for technology and sound performance well beyond their price range.



Tiny but huge sound. Cambridge Audio Minx Series speakers use a patented technology called BMR or ‘Balance Mode Radiator’ for wide dispersion and spacious sound with deeper, more powerful bass than comparable sized mini speakers. Available in two sizes; a single cube called Min11 or double cube called Min21. Team them up with your choice of Minx subwoofer for a tiny speaker system that has sound to stir the soul.


Bowers & Wilkins is the best of the British/European speakers and are Rolls Royce build quality. Most of the music we listen to was mastered using B&W speakers. Bowers & Wilkins are used by Abbey Road and Skywalker Sound recording studios for their accuracy and purity of sound. Their R&D led to the development of diamond dome Nautilus tweeters, mid-drivers made from Kevlar and Matrix cabinet re-enforcement so you hear all the music and not the speaker.

Organization plans to hold more fundraising events

Jessica Cunha

EMC news - The Kanata Food Cupboard helped more than 2,500 families in 2012, up from 1,670 in 2011. It also implemented new initiatives, including the grocery store concept and a warehouse to help streamline the sorting process, said Marc Dumais, chairman of the food cupboard, at the annual general meeting on March 20. With a growing client demand and new projects, for the first time the food cupboard ran a deficit in 2012. The organization was in the red more than $31,100, with revenues coming in at $199,800 and expenses sitting at $230,900. In 2011 revenues sat at $238,000 while expenses totalled $216,000. One of the reasons for the drop in revenue was a 53 per cent decline in business donations. Total donations declined by eight per cent in 2012, while total fundraising was down by 23 per cent. One of the biggest expenses was renting the warehouse location at 2 The Parkway, which cost $28,300, but that was in the plan, said Dumais. The organization has four large fundraising initiatives a year and in 2012: • The Canada Day Races at Earl of March Secondary School in July brought in $3,000 and 68 kilograms of food.

More than 200 girls from across the Ottawa region converged at Scotiabank Place on March 24 for the ninth annual Girls HockeyFest. The girls – aged seven to 12 – practiced off and on-ice skill training with members of the University of Ottawa and Carleton University women’s hockey teams. The workshop is offered to girls in novice, atom and peewee levels. The girls also heard from Cassie Campbell-Pascall and Sami Jo Small – both of whom are two-time Olympic gold medalists.

Food cupboard users prefer grocery concept Number of

clients nearly doubles

Continued from page 1

• The Food For Thought event at the Holiday Inn in November raised $8,145 and 220 pounds of food. • The Santa Claus Parade in November brought in $5,000 in cash donations and 5,500 pounds of food. • The OC Transpo Fill the Bus event in December raised $ 3,200 and eight tonnes of food. Board member Pat Dowsett said the food cupboard is looking at new opportunities, which includes possible partnerships with the Sens Foundation and the CIS National Basketball Championship.

The food cupboard spent $74,600 in food vouchers in 2012, up from $69,120 in 2011. Although the organization is planning for another deficit in 2013, Dumais said the food cupboard is planning to expand its fundraising initiatives and get back into the black. “This is not a cause for concern,” he said about the deficit, adding the food cupboard has a reserve fund of $193,000 in assets. In 2012, the Kanata Food Cupboard launched its Grocery Store initiative, which allows families to shop for the foods they like and need, instead of receiving a pre-packaged hamper. “Our clients prefer the Grocery Store concept,” said Dumais. It’s also a time saver, said board member Jonathon Dicker, because volunteers no longer have to pack the hampers. “It took a lot of work but it was worthwhile,” said Dicker. “It creates

An important message from

The food cupboard is also working towards providing a phone answering service during operation hours. Currently, clients must leave a message and wait for a call back from volunteers for a time they can pick up their items. The answering service will give clients better and quicker access to the organization, said Dumais.

“Our several hundred volunteers are the reason we’re able to carry out our mandate,” he said. The Kanata Food Cupboard also announced a partnership with Target Canada, which will be moving into the Hazeldean Mall, and membership with the Ontario Association of Food Banks.

EMC news - The Kanata Food Cupboard is looking for volunteers to help support the needs of the community. Volunteer co-ordinator Kerry Beer said they need “as many hands as possible” to fill a number of positions. The food cupboard has a number of new projects starting this year, including the fresh food initiative, which provides clients with fresh produce, and a new phone answering service. Volunteers are also needed for pickup, delivery and stocking. “We’re always in need of drivers,” she said, adding they are also looking for volunteers who can help prepare for Christmas and the holidays. “You’re supporting your community,” said Beer. High school students can get community service hours working at the food cupboard. The Kanata Food Cupboard helped more than 2,500 families last year, compared to 1,600 in 2011. More than 5,700 adults and more than 4,400 children received assistance from the organization in 2012, compared to 4,600 adults and 3,400 children the previous year. Most of the volunteer shifts are between 9 a.m. and noon on weekdays. For more information, email

World Water Day flows into the classroom

EMC News - Knowledge was flowing at Stephen Leacock Public School as students and staff held their second World Water Day celebration. Students worked together to create a gallery with the intention of educating themselves and others about water issues that face our society. “It takes five litres of water to flush a toilet, more than many around the world have in a day, “ said Aliza Itskovich, a Grade 8 student, whose class focused their study of water issues through a science theme. Every grade participated in the event, contributing artwork and subject-themed projects that adorned most of the school’s main hallway. “There are water issues not just in the Third World but also in Canada,” said Gaynor Kondric, a Grade 3 teacher and an organizer of the event. Some places in Canada, such as native reserves, don’t have clean water and this can lead to people getting sick, said Lauren Eggleton, a Grade 8 student. Each grade explained the importance of water issues through different areas of their curriculum. For instance, the third graders worked with social studies. “If the pioneers didn’t have water they would have had to return to Europe,” said third grader Eric Lou, referring to Canada’s

earliest settlers’ use of rivers and lakes for transportation. “Our goal is to continuously sensitize our students to global issues so that they begin to develop awareness of their own contribution and potential for making the world a better place for all,” said Kondric. This is the second year that the school held celebrations for World Water Day. Last year students made pledges on vinyl water drops that were sent to Ben Mulroney who then brought them as a banner to Tanzania. JIGSAWS

This time around several classes chose to raise awareness in another way. In an exercise dubbed “jigsaws,” classes were divided into several groups, where each member had the responsibility of becoming an expert in a different aspect of water issues. They then moved into different groups to share what they had learned and hear what the other experts had to say. “The dialogue helps students to develop their ideas as they become critical thinkers about important issues,” said Kondric. Keeping shower times under five minutes and using reusable water bottles were some of the tips given by students to conserve water. World Water Day was first celebrated in 1993 after a United Nations General Assembly designation. Its goal is to focus attention TYLER COSTELLO/METROLAND on the importance of freshwater and advocat- Grade 5 students Maya Worthing, Jade Yeung and Sara Kotick hold up a piece of ing for sustainable management of fresh water artwork created by their class to celebrate World Water Day.

Stormwater study to provide baseline for future development EMC news - A report looking at stormwater management concerns in the Shirley’s Brook and Watt’s Creek area has found five road crossings that don’t meet the city’s criteria for overtopping. “(There) appears to be a bit of a spill,â€? said Darlene Conway, senior project manager at a public meeting discussing the study on March 18. “There is erosion but it’s not considered excessive.â€? The areas are: • Legget Drive on Kizell Drain • Goulbourn Forced Road between the Kizell Wetland and Beaver Pond • Goulbourn Forced Road, March Valley Road and the DND crossing downstream of March Valley on Shirley’s Brook. The city gave residents an update on the report, which aims to provide a baseline study of the existing surface water conditions before more developments are added to the area, on March 18. The first phase of the report, completed in 2011, found that the Beaver Pond stormwater management facility was already at capacity. Phase 1 looked at the existing performance of the Beaver Pond system, which included the Kizell wetland, for current development on both sides of Goulbourn Forced Road. Phase 2, now underway, is looking at existing flood and erosion sensitivities and how to manage the remaining KNL development phases. The report also aims to provide a baseline study of the existing surface water conditions before more developments are added to the area. Phase 2 has found locations on both Shirley’s Brook and the Kizell Drain/ Watt’s Creek “are sensitive to erosion of the stream bed and banksâ€? while other locations along both waterways are prone to sediment accumulation. “The point of this study is to understand what’s going on now,â€? said Conway. KNL Developments, a partnership between Urbandale and Richcraft Homes owns land within the Beaver Pond. “We’re providing an existing condition,â€? said Conway. “There has to be


some further work done.� The information from the study done by AECOM Canada Ltd. will address the capacity constraint existing in the Beaver Pond “prior to additional development proceeding,� said the report.






Ranked in Top 10 for MLSÂŽ Sales in Ottawa* *based MLS statistics January 2005 - February 2013.



A number of residents at the meeting said they were worried about flooding if more development is built in the area. “I don’t want to be flooded out,� said one resident. “It’s going to go into our basements,� said Steve Hulaj, who lives near the Beaver Pond. “There’s no way anymore water can fit.� To make comments, email darlene.

Turning people’s lives around with one small gesture Jessica Cunha


A team of six under-20 youths make up the Small Gestures Change Lives organization. Founded by Roger Collins, SGCL aims to help others through acts of kindness. Members gave out free hugs last month during Kindness Week. Algonquin College. She said one of the hardest aspects of starting Small Gestures Change Lives is making people realize that young people can make a difference. “I think there’s a lot of judgment sometimes towards youth,” she said, adding many people can be mistrustful. The team is hoping to partner with a local school, church or organization that will accommodate the plans for fundraising activities, and is looking for more members of all ages to become a part of the summer fundraising committee.

All funds raised by Small Gestures Change Lives for Moving Mountains “will be used directly in Kenya to support the education of some of

“It’s like it was meant to happen,” he said. “Most people were really, really, really thankful.” The group also came up with the idea for a Free Hug Day as part of Kindness Week 2013. The team posted video footage of the day and people’s reactions on the Small Gestures Change Lives Facebook page. “Putting yourself out there is the first step,” said Collins. “It was amazing.” As for long-term goals, Collins said one would be to get Small Gestures Change Lives on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. “(We’ll) keep working on making a name for ourselves,” he said. “We’re trying really hard to do something good for the community around us.” For more information, search Small Gestures Change Lives on Facebook, follow them on Twitter @teamSGCL or email Collins at roger.sgcl@

Their goal this year is to raise awareness about Small Gestures Change Lives and $10,000 for Moving Mountains, a charity that helped the Finding Life expedition members when they travelled to Kenya. “They made it possible for us to climb Mount Kenya,” said Collins. “They support some of the most underprivileged in Africa.”

Recently, they put together nine care packages, filled with bottles of water, granola bars, pairs of jeans, sweaters, socks and personal hygiene items, and delivered them to people living on Ottawa’s downtown streets. As they gave out the packages, a lady who hadn’t seen what they were doing stopped the group and asked if they had an extra pair of socks. “Her teeth were chattering,” said Collins. They had one care package left, with a woman’s sweater and three pairs of socks inside. The woman was extremely grateful.

EMC news - Roger Collins turned his life around thanks to a number of small gestures by people who believed in him. The young Bridlewood man is now using his experiences to help other people with his organization Small Gestures Change Lives. “I was going down a really bad path as a younger kid,” said Collins, who was criminally charged as a youth. “Now, I’m trying to give back.” He was charged with two criminal offenses as a 16-yearold but thanks to the persistence of the people around him, he managed to get himself on the right track. A big turning point in his life came when he was selected to travel to Solio, Kenya, with Finding Life to hike Mount Kenya and build classrooms when he was a student at Holy Trinity Catholic High School. Finding Life was founded by Elia Saikaly as a way to engage students to create positive change in the world. The non-profit organization uses adventure, technology, film and charitable organizations to inspire others to find a meaningful life. Saikaly said Finding Life offers a journey of self discovery. “In Kenya, Roger Collins spent his time saving goats, building classrooms, connecting with hundreds of Kenyan kids by bringing joy and laughter into their hearts and being an inspiring responsible leader and role model,” he said. Collins personal transformation was evident on many levels, shown through his daily actions and gestures and his blogs, said Saikaly. “If our Finding Life project ignited a spark of positive change then we certainly achieved our goal. He changed people’s lives. Including his

own,” he said. Collins is a young man with a huge heart and incredible potential, said Saikaly. “He (may have made) some poor choices in the past, as we all have, but today he remains in my eyes a young man who has the potential to lead, inspire and make a difference in the world.” After Collins returned from Africa, he said he didn’t want to stop making a difference. He tried to volunteer with local organizations, but having a criminal record kept many of those opportunities out of his reach. “I realized how much my record affected my life,” said Collins. “I wanted to start doing volunteer work on my own but I didn’t know how.” He thought about the small gestures of kindness and encouragement he received as he worked to turn his life around – from a school chaplain, a teacher, his mother and Saikaly – and turned that into a model that could be applied to others. “Some people put it upon themselves that they need a really big act to change something,” said Collins. “But it’s the small gestures. “We’re trying to start a movement; small things are the biggest thing.” With the help of five friends – Glen Cairn resident Kerry Brezynskie, Michael Paul Robinson of Stittsville, Roxanne Ibrahim a resident of east Ottawa, Stittsville’s Alex Potvin and Katie Saikaley from Alta Vista – they brought Small Gestures Change Lives to life. “I love helping people,” said Brezynskie, who also graduated from Holy Trinity. “It’s something I really, really enjoy.” The young Glen Cairn woman had more than 400 hours of volunteer service when she graduated from high school and is now studying nursing at the University of Ottawa and

Hosting a venting session


ast weekend, the city hosted a roundtable discussing managing climate change by curbing greenhouse gas emissions. A laudable goal, but we can’t help wonder if it isn’t also simply an exercise in “fuel-tility.” The first topic of the meeting was discussing the most effective strategies for the city to reduce greenhouse gases. The first and really only answer to effectively lower the nation’s carbon footprint is to lobby the federal and provincial government – really the only bodies with the power to act as effective agents of change. Did the city really need to spend taxpayers money on an environmental venting session, before writing a letter to the provincial and federal ministries – as well as assorted MPs and MPPs? We’re not suggesting that individuals, municipalities, companies and other assorted organizations and NGOs can’t make a difference – but any effective change will require the concerted effort of cities, provinces and ultimately nations. Ottawa’s proper role in the discussion is to work with other municipalities to pressure the federal and provincial governments to address

the problem. The greenhouse gas roundtable was set up following months of pressure from a loosely connected group of activists who have been mounting a campaign using Twitter and other social media. Activists were pressing the city to meet its committment to come up with a new climate-change action plan that included clear greenhouse gas reduction targets and a timetable for that plan. The question remains, what kind of actions can the city unilaterally take in reducing greenhouse gas emissions that can’t be easily overturned by the provincial and federal government – especially if these actions are ones that lie outside municipalities purview. The City of Ottawa did not need to shell out money and waste time hosting a meeting that ultimately will result in another letter-writing campaign and perhaps small changes to building design requirements, city vehicle fleets or wastemanagement practices. The city’s time would be better spent holding a forum discussing its trash collection policy or the need to address the municipality’s aging infrastructure problem.


What we really need is an app for real city living


ast week it was revealed that there are now two apps to tell you when your bus will arrive. Apparently one was not enough and someone felt the need to come up with a better one. This is the way our economy works nowadays. Most of the time and energy available to our inventors, entrepreneurs and marketers is now spent developing things for phones. Some of them are useful, some of them are just fun. Yet just about the time we get comfortable with them, our inventors, entrepreneurs and marketers come up with new phones. Our old ones are obsolete. The entire economy stands or falls on this stuff now and we might as well get used to it. Sure, some people think that what we need is more factories, better crops, better vaccines, more alternate sources of energy, improved schools and hospitals. Never mind. What we get is better phones. And more apps for them. There is an app that works like a flashlight, which is pretty useful, and I have musician friends whose phones contain the chord progressions for hundreds of tunes. But there is also an app that allows you to use hypnotherapy to improve

Thousands more apps are in existence, millions more are on the way and we can’t stop them. Besides, the economy would crumble if we did and there may not be an app to save it yet. So we might as well go with the flow and begin to search for new apps that will make our city life more bearable. What more can our phones do for us?

would tell you when the city plows are approaching your street, so that you can move your car. The bolder among you might use the app to tell you when to stand by the curb imploring the operator not to leave the mountain of snow at the end of your driveway. In the spring, an app can tell you when the spiders are invading your barbecue. In summer, the mosquito app can tell you when it’s safe to go outside. When fall comes, the maple tree app will tell you when the last leaf is about to fall and you can finally go out and rake. Now it’s true that you could discover these things just by going outside and looking around, but where’s the fun in that when you can do it on your phone? Don’t forget the one that shows how long you will be on hold when you’re trying to phone the phone company.

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse here. We’re a pretty active community. The day of the most recent snowstorm, I saw two of my neighbours decked out for winter and cycling to work. Come spring, anyone walking through our neighbourhood would think people are home all day because of the number of cars parked in the driveway. But no: People are actually actively commuting. I think I’ve written before about my friend a few doors down who jogs the six kilometres home from work each day. I’d need three hands to count the number of bicycle commuters. Even the retirees in my neighbourhood are out daily walking, running, cross-country skiing – not only does this mean they’re not sitting at home getting fat, but they’re also not feeling isolated and depressed, two further benefits of protecting green space. So as the NCC continues its deliberations, the impact on the health of our communities needs to be one of the top considerations. After all, unless we are content to look like the characters in the film WALL-E within the next 17 years, urban planners need to increase and protect green space – not slash through it with another conduit for motor vehicles.

How important are heritage buildings to our city?



anada is fat. No, I don’t mean phat, as in “cool.” Although we’re that as well, on occasion. Canadians are fat, as in large-waisted. And about a quarter of us are really fat, as in obese. One quarter! According to researchers at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, if we keep going the way we are, the obesity numbers will double by 2030, which means every second one of us will be shopping in the plus-sizes section. This is not a vanity issue. Obesity affects everything, including public health, the economy and mental wellbeing. People that are obese are more likely to suffer from stroke, Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and depression. As a result, obesity affects workplace productivity, personal relationships and it’s proving to be a huge drain on our tax dollars. Imagine half of us being in this condition in less than 20 years. The answers are complex. There are many things contributing to the obesity epidemic: what we eat, our working conditions, the amount of time we spend in front of screens. But another key contributor is just starting to receive some mainstream attention -- where we live. A number of studies over the past two decades have linked higher rates of obesity to the urban lifestyle. Over-reliance on cars, urban sprawl, longer commutes and lack of access to green space are proven deterrents to active lifestyles. Green space, in particular, is essential to keeping our waistlines trim. So while obesity obviously falls under the purview of public health and food regulators, it’s also an issue to be carefully considered by urban planners. Ottawa’s overweight and obesity statistics are on par with the national average. This is surprising in a way because I always consider Ottawa to be a relatively green city. We have a number of vast public parks, a relatively sophisticated (and ever-improving) bike-lane system and we’re all within spitting distance of Gatineau Park. But as the city goes forward to think about tackling obesity in a complex way, it must consider how to incorporate even more green into that plan. It’s one of the reasons the Kettle Island Bridge – currently one of three potential commuter routes under consideration by the National Capital Commission – is inherently flawed. The plan – if it were to go forward – would see a bridge built east of downtown, with the goal of diverting three thousand cars twice daily, plus transport trucks away from the urban core. Instead, the NCC feels that heavy traffic cutting through a vast and unique green area surrounding the Rockcliffe and Aviation Parkways is a positive solution. In the interest of full disclosure, I happen to live in one of the neighbourhoods that would be affected by the bridge. And you know, one of the reasons I was surprised to discover that Ottawa’s as fat as the rest of the country is because I don’t see that many fat people

Blanding’s turtles threatened with local extinction: study Further development could wipe out at-risk species Jessica Cunha

EMC news - A study on the endangered Blanding’s turtles in the South March Highlands has found the species is at risk of local extinction. Current and past developments pose an “immediate threat on the already at-risk animal,” said the report, completed by Dillon Consulting Limited, contracted by the City of Ottawa. The South March Highlands Blanding’s Turtle Conservation Needs Assessment looked at the current population and stressors and concluded the South March Highlands population is “at high risk of decline and eventual extirpation.” Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson hosted a meeting on March 18 to discuss the study. Around 60 people attended the assembly, which also talked about a report on Shirley’s Brook and Watt’s Creek phase two stormwater management study. This was one of the biggest stud-

ies done in Canada on the Blanding’s turtle, said Wilkinson. Nick Stowe, city planner, said it’s a sound analysis, which was reviewed by two experts: one was conservation biologist and professor Gabriel Blouin-Demers from the University of Ottawa, the other professor emeritus Justin D. Congdon, an internationally recognized Blanding’s turtle expert with the Savannah River Ecology Laboratory. “In 2010, the city began the Terry Fox Drive extension. As a requirement of the environmental assessment, the city had to do a four-year study on the Blanding’s turtle,” said Stowe. The city estimated there were about 30 Blanding’s turtles in the South March Highlands, but the study found the number to be between 100 to 200. “That becomes a population that is possibly viable in the long term,” said Stowe. But with past and current development in the area reducing the natural habitat and cutting off the connections to other Blanding’s populations, the South March Highlands group is at-risk. “Being a small population it’s sensitive,” said Stowe. “It’s become an isolated population.” The South March Highlands population lives in an area that includes

and Richcraft Homes. A subdivision planned for the Beaver Pond lands will see 3,200 houses built. “More urban development would increase the risk of the population,” said Stowe, adding “It does not mean KNL cannot proceed.” If the developer can prove mitigating measures or compensation to ensure the negative impact would be lessened, then they can move forward with construction. KNL has to apply to the Ministry of Natural Resources, said Stowe, which will make the final decision. “They must show that in the end the population will be better off in the long-term.” If KNL gets the approval from the ministry, then approval under the planning act is guaranteed. “It’s a harsh way to put it but that’s how these two acts work together,” said Stowe. “It seems like an impossible task to mitigate,” said one resident at the meeting.

All guests must be 19 years of age or older with valid gov’t issued photo ID to enter the SLOTS & Dining Room; everyone 19-25 will be required to show a second piece of non-photo ID.


Population monitoring does show the turtles using the tunnels along the Terry Fox Drive extension, said Stowe. There were a number of road mortalities in the first year but there have been no Blanding’s turtle deaths on the road in the past two years, said Stowe, adding the railroad tracks are still an issue. The report states the “Blanding’s turtle conservation and management in the SMH must remain a priority of the City of Ottawa and other stakeholders to help preserve this threatened, unique species.” It continues that “the recommendations made to curtail habitat degradation and other threats to the SMH Blanding’s turtle should be explored prior to any further urban development in the area. The protection of species at risk requires collaboration and enforcement by government, landowners, researchers, nongovernmental organizations and the public.” The report recommends reducing the rate of adult turtle road deaths, increasing hatchling success, limiting urban development in sensitive areas and improved connectivity to other habitats and populations to support the South March Highlands group in the long term.

Tanger mall will have 95 stores Tyler Costello

EMC news – A huge U.S. outlet mall under construction north of Scotiabank Place will provide shoppers with a selection of 95 stores. The Tanger Outlet Mall, set to finish construction in 2014, will feature numerous shops that will be organized around a series of pedestrianonly walkways and common areas, according to a site plan proposal. City council has approved zoning for the mall and there are currently no formal objections to the proposal, with two weeks left to file an appeal. Workers will begin turning sod by mid-May with construc-

tion set to begin sometime this summer, said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson during a ward council meeting on March 25. The 37,160-square-metre mall will be located south of the future Campeau Road extension, north of Highway 417 and west of Huntmar Drive, according to the site plan control proposal. There will also be a roundabout provided for traffic entering the mall from the intersection of Huntmar and a yetto-be extended Campeau. There are plans to build an eight storey hotel and restaurant section just south of Feedmill Creek that runs east-west through the area. A walking bridge will link

the hotel and restaurant area with the storefront. The hotel and restaurant area will be built in a second phase of construction. The mall will be a joint venture between RioCan Management Inc. and Tanger Outlet Centers, Inc., which operates in the United States, and will be the first one Tanger has built in Canada. Although Tanger has previously converted a mall in Toronto, this will be the first one actually built in Canada, said Coun. Wilkinson. The outlet, which will be built just west of a 1,400-unit subdivision currently under construction, will have a multiuse pathway situated along the Feedmill Creek.

KBCA collecting 50 years of community history Kanata Beaverbrook Community Association

Visit us Online at

EMC news - The Kanata Beaverbrook Community Association reached the first step in a lengthy project to assemble almost five decades of KBCA history on March 14. A dozen file boxes were placed in the care of the new archives at the James Bartleman Centre. The files include public decisions, proposed plans, rallies and celebrations, advice to several levels of government and have been accumulated and stored as the historical files of the KBCA since its inception. They amplify treasured back-files of the Kanata KourierStandard. “This is a unique collection,” said Faith Blacquiere, who undertook the arrangement of historical files. “It documents the planning and evolution of an established satellite garden city from farmer’s fields. With the KKS EMC historical files it may be equaled nowhere else in Canada.” The KBCA is the civil society centre of the satellite town garden city of Kanata, now part of the city of Ottawa. “It’s a good time for family and business histories too,” said Gary Sealey, president of the KBCA. “Canada’s anniversary is coming. Perhaps we could look forward to a citizen learning centre in western Ottawa, so that children and new adult arrivals can learn about the place where they live. A community history project could promote intergenerational learning and heritage for populations now and to come.” Bill Teron’s vision of Kanata as an entire city was projected on marginal farmlands beyond the Ottawa Greenbelt conceived in the Greber Plan. Beaverbrook house sales began in 1965 from the first constructed units of its 20th century modern residential

sector of rental, condominium and freehold low-rise townhouses, bungalows and flats. The development was designed so that many community services were within walking distance, famously within the reach of a child’s travel by tricycle. Residences were arranged in loops rather than in a grid system, to emphasize community and neighbourliness. Additional services and employment were to be served by a planned town centre. All of this settlement was encircled by a growing and valuable hi-tech research and development manufacturing area. The whole was served by schools, churches, parks and other public institutions. Through these common facilities and many fun activities, a broad range and mix of public social and economic classes enjoyed life, work and play together, limiting segregation and promoting community. From the beginning, Teron, required that home purchasers purchase a membership in the KBCA as a condition of their home ownership. As Kanata continued to grow, to complete the initial residential plan totaling 2,156 units of mixed housing, KBCA participated with March Township and in particular its reeve, John G. Mlacak, in the creation of planned public facilities, a newspaper, library, equestrian park, parks and pathways and in creating plans and zoning guidelines to evolve further. After the completion of the Beaverbrook community of approximately 25 neighbourhood clusters, adjoining communities were created within Kanata, including Kanata Lakes and Morgan’s Grant/Briarwood. Following its initial founding, KBCA was incorporated in 1969 with officers elected across the Beaverbrook settlement and with directors elected by members within each of the clusters. At that time, the median age of Kanata was mid-thirties and there were no residents aged sixty or more. The first mayor of Kanata, Marianne Wilkinson, served a term as president of KBCA in 1973. As of 2013, many of the first inhabitants of Beaverbrook continue to live in the community they helped to set up and nurture. Residents of Beaverbrook started the first household recycling program in Canada, said Sealey, adding the KBCA hopes to “get funds to digitize the files, which can perhaps augment the Kanata Room and form the basis of a neighbourhood public heritage project.”

Star Wars coming to a museum not so far away Michelle Nash

Open TODAY 9-9 Closed Friday Open SAT 9-5


“I think I will go home and watch them, it seems really cool,” Mombourquette said. X3 Productions collaborated with the Montréal Science Centre’s team of experts in a variety of fields to build the exhibition. Jacques-André Dupont, president and executive producer of X3 Productions, said the teams’ knowledge and expertise have shaped the exhibition’s structure and their input has been essential in developing its scientific and educational content. “This exhibition offers a fresh perspective on the beloved characters of Star Wars,” Dupont said. “We get a deeper understanding of their identities, and, at the same time, we get a deeper understanding of our own ... . It’s a characterdriven adventure into identity.” Exploring the complex notion of identity in both the real world and in the films, X3 Productions hopes shed light on each of the components of identity. The exhibition will divide the study of the characters from the movies identity into three major themes: the origins

of the characters, the influences that shape them, and the choices they make during their life. It’s by looking at these characters’ identity that patrons will have the chance to learn about the components which make up their own human identities, such as species, genes, parents, and culture. The museum promises many fun aspects to the new exhibit including a making-of featurettes which explore the stories behind the development of many iconic Star Wars characters and explain how they became who they are, and how different creative choices could have made them different characters altogether. There are interactive identity quests, scientific content and the chance to follow Luke and Anakin Skywalker through their journey. Online ticket sales for the exhibition opened on March 23, with opening day beginning on May 10. Visitors can also begin their identity adventure online at Adult tickets are $23 and children are $13.25. The exhibition will run until Sept. 2.

Michaela Hawdur, Chelsea Frake and Rachael Mombourquette hang out with a couple of characters at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum on March 20. The museum launched its summer exhibition, Star Wars Identities, which will open on May 10.


EMC news - The space museum has gone out of this world to find its summer programming this year. The Canada Aviation and Space Museum announced Star Wars Identities: The Exhibition on March 20. A museum showcase will feature the characters from the famous film series, including Darth Vader, R2-D2, Chewbacca, Yoda as well as Anakin Skywalker’s full-sized Podracer, offering both old and new fans of the films the chance to explore what forces shape the person or species you become. Created by Montreal’s X3 Productions in collaboration with Lucasfilm Ltd., the exhibition first appeared at the Montreal Science Centre in the spring of 2012. It has since travelled to western Canada, and will move to the capital starting on May 10. “We are extremely happy to host this wonderful exhibition, which asks fascinating questions about how identities are developed,” said Denise Amyot, the chief executive of the Canada Science and Technology Museums Corporation. “We are certain it will prove to be extremely popular with the National Capital Region’s residents and visitors. It will be a wonderful complement to our fascinating exhibitions on aviation and space travel.” The museum invited a group of students from Georges Vanier Catholic School to meet some of the characters of the series, including Darth Vader and a few Stormtroopers. Student Rachael Mombourquette said her family has all the movies at home, but she admitted she was never really interested until now.

City looks to crack down on for-profit bins Laura Mueller


EMC news - The city is cracking down on messy donation bins that appear to be collecting clothes for charity, but are actually run by businesses. Bins on private property will have to display whether the operator is a registered charity, (along with the registration number), a non-profit organization or a for-profit business, under a proposal that will be voted on by council on March 27. The sign will also have to display contact information for the operator, as well as the pickup schedule. There will also be rules to ensure the property owner keeps the area FILE surrounding the bin clean and debris The city may soon require clothing donation bins to be kept tidy and display information how the money free. “This is a very good, made-inraised by sale of the items will be used – either for charity or for profit.

Bags of clothes that are left to pile up around the untended donation boxes are sometimes torn open. “So it becomes a burden on the employees of the city to have to clean this thing up,” Hubley said. The bins sometimes attract thieves who try to break into them, according to the city report. There are also issues with bins blocking sightlines and creating safety hazards for traffic or undesirable activity. There are benefits to the bins, a city report says. They divert unwanted clothes from landfills and they sometimes assist charitable efforts. Sending city staff to remove bins that aren’t allowed could ramp up city staff costs so it’s not recommended. While it could be offset by the fee associated with donation-bin licences, there are also issues of perceived interference, the staff report says. The new bylaw will come into effect June 3 if it gets council’s approval this week.

Kourier-Standard reporter wins provincial newspaper award Staff


Jessica Cunha, right, celebrates after taking third place for best feature/news series at the Ontario Community Newspaper Association’s Better Newspaper Competition Awards, held in Toronto on March 22. At left is, Mike Mount, vice-president and regional publisher of Metroland East. she has also won two Metroland Editorial Awards: first place for best news photograph and third place, together with a team of reporters at Metroland East, for their work on Puck Pride: Celebrating Canada’s Game in the special section category. FIVE AWARDS

Metroland East newspapers received five awards and one honorable mention at the provincial newspaper awards gala, including: • The Renfrew Mercury finished third in the general

excellence category of newspapers with a circulation between 12,500 to 22,999. • Interim managing editor Theresa Fritz finished third in the best news category for her story about the hit and run death of 26-year-old mother Eric Vance in the West Carleton Review. • Derek Dunn, West Carleton Review, took third place in the best rural news story category. Brier Dodge, Orleans News, took second place in the health and wellness category for her story about teenage mental health. R0011995717/0328

EMC news – Kanata Kourier-Standard reporter Jessica Cunha was honoured with a provincial newspaper award last weekend. Cunha, together with two other reporters, took third place in the best feature/news series category for their Fundraising Fever series at the Ontario Community Newspapers Association (OCNA) Better Newspaper Competition awards and gala, held in Toronto on March 22. The special investigative series ran in all Metroland papers, and competed among 53 entries from newspapers across Ontario. “This is a great series. All the reader’s questions are answered and it brings forward something that is of high interest to all readers, and a topic that many may not be aware of. Layout is well done with blocks of text efficiently broken up as well,” wrote the judge in this category. “The use of the fundraising breakdown chart, too, is a great way to pull a potentially uninterested reader in, and I can only assume that would be good enough to then make them read the stories. Great job. This is a story that’s been done before in other markets, but never quite in this way, that I’ve seen. Any time a reporter can take something and make it his own – while putting an entirely news perspective on what’s happening – that’s worthy of placement.” Cunha learned last week

Tasty winter treat tainted by a dark discovery


inding clean snow in the yard at the farm was almost impossible. This caused a great concern for Mother. At this time of year, we five children begged for toffee-on-snow as the sap poured from the trees, and that meant hauling in a roaster of spotlessly clean snow. As well as the boilingdown in the big flat pan in the bush, Mother would boil big pots of sap in the kitchen filling the house with sweet heavy steam. Each night we children begged for toffee-on-snow, but often Mother would say it was a Saturday night treat and we went to bed out of sorts that we have been deprived of one of our favourite treats. Each night that we were allowed this indulgence Everett or Audrey, being the two oldest in the family, would be sent out for a roast pan of snow. Mother kept sending them farther and farther afield for clean snow. Father said she would soon have us going across

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories the river to Admaston, which of course was an exaggeration. But Mother was fastidious about anything that came within a country mile of our mouths and using a roast pan of snow where the livestock had trod was out of the question. So either Everett or Audrey was given the task of finding clean snow for the toffee -- Emerson couldn’t be trusted to go beyond the barn yard. That night it was dark as pitch outside. It had been a heavy snow for late March. Mother said we would be staying home. No church party had been planned and no one had offered their home for a game of cards, so we had a rare Saturday night at home without

a house full of neighbours. It was a perfect night for toffee-on-snow. Audrey would carry the lantern and Everett the roast pan and the big soup ladle, ready to bring in the freshly fallen snow. Mother had put a small pot of already boiled syrup on the front lid of the Findlay Oval and it was fair jumping by the time the clean snow was brought into the house, just perfect to pour out on the snow for a feed of sticky toffee. Although Mother always trusted Audrey or Everett to go well away from the barn yard, that night she took a big spoon and dragged it through the roaster of snow, just to be on the safe side. Well, what happened next was something like you

would see in a picture show in Renfrew. There, buried in the pan of snow, was something that proved they hadn’t gone far enough. Mother stared at the black lump, which wasn’t big enough to fill a teaspoon, but big enough to send her into a fit. Father, used to Mother’s obsession with cleanliness, never took his eyes off the Family Herald and Weekly Star that he was reading by the oven door. She demanded to know where the snow came from, and both Audrey and Everett vowed it came from the farthest reaches of the yard where no livestock ever went. Well, that didn’t satisfy Mother. Even though she had no idea what the black lump was, she knew it had spoiled the entire roaster of snow. Audrey said she would get rid of it and that the rest of the roaster was perfectly clean. Well, she might as well have told Mother the lump was just a raisin. Mother was having no part of her story.

“Dump it out, Audrey,” Mother said. “Goodness knows what else is in the roaster. There’ll be no toffee tonight.”

Mother had put a small pot of already boiled syrup on the front lid of the Findlay Oval and it was fair jumping by the time the clean snow was brought into the house, just perfect to pour out on the snow for a feed of sticky toffee. Well, did that cause an uproar. Emerson accused Everett and Audrey of getting the snow from behind the cow byre where we dumped the manure, Everett took a handful of the snow out of the roaster and flung it at Emerson, who paid him back by throwing his gum rubber

at him, hitting him square in the face. Audrey was ready to stomp off upstairs. Mother ordered her back to the table and she was told to scrub the roaster with hot water and lye soap, even though the teeny bit of black came no where near touching the pan. The commotion in the kitchen was like something you’d see in a movie. Father got off the rocking chair, folded the Family Herald and Weekly Star, tapped his pipe into the stove and he could be heard muttering about the crazy family he was living with – “A man can’t even read the paper in peace.” While he was heading for the bedroom off the kitchen, he added, “Hauling snow in the house, throwing it around like it was nothing. Washing a perfectly clean pan, I tell you the whole house is going straight to hell in a basket,” which was a saying Father hauled out every time something came up that riled him. That night he was as riled as I had seen him in a long time.

Bill Teron honoured for lifetime achievement Blair Edwards

EMC news – The Father of Kanata has been named this year’s recipient of the Jane Jacob’s Lifetime Achievement Award from the Canadian Urban Institute. Bill Teron has established a reputation as “a passionate advocate for quality design and had an equally influential career in public policy,” said the institute. The lifetime achievement award is given to a person who has a made an extraordinary contribution to the public realm, and is the capstone to the institute’s Urban Leadership Awards program which honours individuals and groups that have improved the quality of life in Canada’s cities and urban regions. “It’s very meaningful when I put my entire life to be honoured this way,” said Teron. “It’s a very rare honour and it’s a great honour and I’m very moved by it.” The 80-year-old developer, who in the 1960s designed and built Beaverbrook, paved the way for the high-tech industry to create Silicon Valley North in the Kanata North Business Park.

Over the past half century, Teron has worked on a variety of projects focused on improving Ottawa’s urban setting including Somerset Gardens, Park Square, 300 Driveway and Canal 111 as well as suburban communities such as Lynwood Village, Qualicum and Kanata. Teron said his guiding philosophy for designing and building homes and communities is improving the human condition. “It’s all about building the potential in people,” he said. “The environment is the theatre but all the considerations have to be human. “That shapes the urban fabric,” he said. “We build people. We don’t build buildings – we’re not bricks and mortar; everything is human based.” In 1971, Teron came up with the idea of the urban park waterfront concept for Toronto and provided land that became Harbourfront. Born in Gardenton, Manitoba, Teron moved to Ottawa when he was 18 and started his own company Golden Ridge Developments Ltd. The future real-estate mogul cut his teeth designing and building suburban developments in the Bells Corners, housing estates called Lynwood Village. Teron started working in Ottawa shortly after the concept of the Greenbelt was created, a master plan developed by Jacques Breber in 1950 to prevent urban sprawl from gobbling up the rural areas of Ottawa. The belt of green undeveloped land was cre-

ated to contain a city that could provide municipal services for half a million people. Armed with a plan to create a satellite community on the western outskirts of Ottawa, Teron bought 1,200 hectares of greenspace in the former March township. The plan called for housing, schools, an industrial area that would later be developed by the high-tech industry and recreational facilities. Beaverbrook was designed to be a garden city, Teron said, with nature as the primary architecture and streetscapes of trees, not buildings. When the community was first designed, thousands of trees were planted throughout the neighbourhood to provide an envelope of nature for the houses. Streets were given curbs of greenery instead of hard concrete and the community was surrounded by large open spaces – 40 per cent of common green space instead of the five per cent guaranteed under law. Hydro poles and wires were eliminated from the design and street lighting was designed to blend in with the community’s natural surroundings. The Kanata project was later given a design award from the Canadian Housing Design Council. Former prime minister Pierre Trudeau took notice of Teron’s achievement, and in 1973 appointed him chairman and president of Canada Mortgage Housing Corporation, a position he held until 1979. As chairman, he introduced policies and programs encouraging non-profit, co-op, rural and native housing and well as inner city redevelopment. He also started the assisted home ownership program, resulting in a big boom in the nation’s housing production. n 1976, Teron was named deputy minister of the ministry of state for urban affairs, which saw Canada Mortgage and Housing and urban affairs expand their roles as project partners in many large-scale urban projects, such as the redevelopment of Granville Island in Vancouver. Teron has served on the board of governors of Carleton University and as a trustee of Pearson College, serving as chair of both schools’ building committees. He served as a founding trustee of the National Arts Center and a trustee of the National Gallery of Canada Foundation as well as a director of the Canadian Housing Design Council and the Canadian Council on Urban and Regional Research. Teron was made an Officer of the Order of Canada in 1983 and is an honourary fellow of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada as well as an honourary member of the Ontario Association of Architects. Teron will receive the Jane Jacobs Lifetime Achievement Award during the Canadian Urban Institute’s annual Urban Leadership Awards, which will be held at the Westin Ottawa on June 17.

Enjoy an easy, nutritious pot of oats this weekend


Snowy tales for early spring Local children’s author Molly O’Connor reads her book Snow Business to the children at The Greenwoods Academy in north Kanata on March 22.

EMC lifestyle - Mornings are hectic for many families. Between getting out the door to school on weekdays and extra-curriculars on weekends, finding the time to cook and eat breakfast can be a challenge. A national poll of family breakfast habits, recently found that half of Canadian families – 49 per cent – spend less than 10 minutes preparing breakfast, while more than half (60 per cent) spend less than 15 minutes eating it. So to make the most of that tight time window and take utmost advantage of the most important meal of the day, quick options are a must. Realizing that time and convenience are key to the solution, the Canadian Living test kitchen has created a “make ahead and forget about it” breakfast recipe slow cooker peaches ‘n’ cream oatmeal that is sure to become a family staple. Hands-on time: five minutes. Total time: six hours.



• 315 ml (1 1/3 cups) steel-cut oats • 4 ml (3/4 tsp) salt • 45 ml (3 tbsp) packed brown sugar • 5 ml (1 tsp) ground ginger • 500 ml (2 cups) chilled peach juice beverage • 250 ml (1 cup) milk • 250 ml (1 cup) water • 15 ml (1 tbsp) vanilla • 500 ml (2 cups) frozen peaches • milk or cream (optional)

Lightly grease the inside of the slow cooker. Add oats, salt, sugar, ginger, juice beverage, milk, water, vanilla and peaches and stir the ingredients together. Cover and cook on low for six hours. If needed, set slow cooker to keep the oatmeal warm. Spoon into bowls and drizzle with milk if desired. Makes six to eight servings

Olympians join the fray, fun at Girls HockeyFest Jennifer McIntosh

Jennifer McIntosh/Metroland

Former Canadian hockey star Cassie Campbell-Pascall, left, skates with one of more than 200 girls who got the chance to hit the ice with Campbell-Pascall and fellow Olympian Sami Jo Small at Scotiabank Place on March 24 as part of Girls HockeyFest.

EMC sports - It was a girls day out on March 24. More than 200 girls from across the Ottawa region converged on Scotiabank Place for the ninth annual Girls HockeyFest. The girls – aged seven to 12 – practiced off and on-ice skill training with members of the University of Ottawa and Carleton women’s hockey teams. The workshop is offered to girls in novice, atom and peewee levels. The girls also heard from Cassie Campbell-Pascall and Sami Jo Small – both of whom are two-time Olympic gold medalists. Campbell-Pascall called Scotiabank the hockey bank, thanks to their support of the Canadian Women’s Hockey League. The Clarkson cup – named after former governor general Adrienne Clarkson – was on display at Scotiabank during the HockeyFest. “Boston wanted to take the cup home with them, but it had to come here first,” Small said. Small, who turned down a job in Silicone Valley to play hockey in Toronto, said the sport has given her lifelong friends. “I wouldn’t change it for any-

thing,” Small, who served as goalie with Team Canada in Nagano and Salt Lake City. Campbell-Pascall was the captain of the Canadian women’s hockey team and has received 21 medals in national, international and Olympic competitions – 17 of those medals were gold. She said the first year she played hockey her teammates didn’t even know she was a girl until the swimming party at the end of the year. “I had short hair and I had my helmet on all the time, so when I showed up in my bathing suit, everyone was like ‘Cass, what are you doing?’” Campbell-Pascall said. She said in all her years of playing since then, she has gained friends for life and learned to be passionate about her goals. “Girls can have people lead them away from their goals, by telling you that it’s not something women do,” Campbell-Pascall said. “But hockey teaches girls to respect others, and more importantly, to respect themselves.” Jana Masiewich, a manager with Scotiabank said the bank wants to promote women’s hockey because of the values team sports instill in young women.

New Stanley Cup statue planned Michelle Nash

EMC news - A monument on Sparks Street is planned to honour Canada’s hockey heritage. It was on March 18, 1892 when then-governor general Baron Lord Stanley of Preston announced he would donate a champion’s cup, later to be named the Stanley Cup, to the champion hockey team of the Dominion (Canada) of that year. On March 18, 2013, the Lord Stanley Memorial Monument Committee revealed plans to build a monument during an announcement at D’Arcy McGee’s pub on Sparks Street. Paul Kitchen, president of the committee, announced the monument will be placed at the corner of Sparks and Elgin Street, in front of McGee’s, to commemorate Stanley’s contribution to Canada’s and Ottawa’s hockey history. “This is the perfect location,” Kitchen said. “Where better to have a work of public art than in this hockey neighbourhood?” The Lord Stanley memorial monument is aimed to be complete by March 18, 2017 - just in time to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation, 125 years to the date that Lord Stanley donated the cup and 100 years since the National Hockley League was formed. “Four years may sound like a lot of time but we have a lot to work out,” Kitchen said. The cost, Kitchen added will be well into seven figures, and raising money for the project is one of the committee’s first priorities. The design of the monument remains to be said but the goal is for the project to reflect the city’s hockey heritage, inform and entertain people and visitors to Canada and will be a sculpture of Stanley

with the original Stanley Cup bowl. The committee will be accepting ideas and submissions from artists, nationwide, and the final design will be selected by a jury chosen by the committee. Local architect, Barry Padolsky and his firm, Barry Padolsky Associates Inc. will be the professional advising team for the design competition. Mayor Jim Watson, Federal Minister of State Sport Bal Gosal and Hockey Hall of Famer Murray Costello joined Kitchen for the announcement. “Hockey is part of the Canadian fabric and I congratulate the monument committee on their efforts to honour Lord Stanley’s gift in this fashion,” Watson said. “I think it’s fitting that this is where the gift was announced by the governor general of the day.”

Hockey Hall of Famer Murray Costello expresses his excitement at the announcement of a memorial monument of Lord Stanley of Preston, Canada’s sixth governor general, who donated the Stanley Cup as a champion prize for hockey. The announcement was made March 18 at D’Arcy McGee’s on Sparks Street. MICHELLE NASH/METROLAND


In its early years, the cup, first named the Dominion Hockey Challenge Cup, was a challenge trophy and could change hands during the course of the season. The Ottawa Senators have won the cup 27 times, between 1903 and 1927. Les Gagne, executive director of the Sparks Street Mall, said this announcement is great news for the street, which is currently working hard at reinventing itself as a top tourist and shopping destination. “We are really excited to have this monument on our street,” Gagne said. “It should create a real impact for the area, and possibly bring thousands of people to Sparks Street.” Gagne added the association would like type of monument or sculpture for the pedestrian-only street. “This is going to bring in a wow factor and I encourage everyone to embrace this project,” he said.

Bus-arrival board hits Centretown coffee shop OC Transpo is a year behind new open-data start-up

to offer the display boards in transit stations or on city property because the city has already chosen a company to do that. Part of the reason is that there are many hoops to jump through when it comes to doing something for the city, include stakeholder engagement and bilingualism requirements, Tierney said. In that way, it’s not a competition, he added – companies like Beyond 2.0 can meet a need for businesses, while the city can focus on its own transit stations and buildings. That type of collaboration is the spirit of the open data movement, Androsoff said. Androsoff and Kibbee plan to enter their innovation into an opendata contest the city is currently running called Apps 4 Ottawa. If the test board at the Treats coffee shop is successful, Beyond 2.0 would look at adding bus arrival time boards at other businesses that are interested. Adding the bus-location capability to existing digital displays in places like doctors’ offices is another possibility, Androsoff said. Business owners can head to www.beyond20. ca to fill out a pre-registration form if they would like to be considered as a location for future bus arrival boards in the coming months. Eventually, the pair could look at other open data streams offered by the city, province, federal government or even international agencies, Androsoff said. “The opportunities are limitless,” he said. Other companies have tried to make a go of a similar venture in other cities, but Androsoff hasn’t found anyone who successfully built a company around the concept.

EMC news - Software developers from Nepean and Barrhaven beat the city by a year by putting a digital board displaying bus times at a Centretown coffee shop. If Ryan Androsoff of Nepean and Sean Kibbee of Barrhaven are successful in expanding their company, Beyond 2.0, and putting more boards in Ottawa businesses, they will also be the first entrepreneurs to build a business based on the city’s open data program. The display is located in a Treats coffee shop at the corner of Albert and Kent streets in the business district. “It occurred to us if you’re sitting in a coffee shop, it would be great if you could look over at the wall and find out when the next bus is coming, especially in an Ottawa winter so you don’t have to wait in the cold,” Androsoff said. “Sean and I are both transit users and we both deal with that in our daily commutes.” It’s a win-win situation for the coffee shop, said owner Adib ElKhoury. People come in to check out the bus times and buy a coffee while the wait inside in the warmth, he said. Nepean resident John Scanlon said the display board is one of the reasons he chooses to come to the Treats shop.

Laura Mueller/Metroland

“I quite like it,” he said. “It lets me know if I have to scarf down my food.” The city began making data streams on everything from the city’s cycling network to flu-clinic times and locations freely available in 2010. GPS locations for OC Transpo buses came along last year and hobbyist developers released a number of mobile applications and websites that use the information to let riders know when their next bus will arrive. Kibbee was one of those developers, and along with his friend, An-

drosoff, wondered if there might be an opportunity for savvy entrepreneurs such as themselves to build a business – and maybe an entire segment of the local economy – around making open data useful to people. The duo began talking about the idea last fall, but really got down to work in January, Androsoff said. With the building blocks of Kibbee’s website, Beyond 2.0 created the display board prototype in about six weeks. The city is likely a year or more away from putting similar displays into transit stations, said Beacon

Hill-Cyrville Coun. Tim Tierney, who sits on the transit commission and heads up its subcommittee on technology. Tierney applauded Androsoff and Kibbee’s work and said he hopes to see more businesses spring out of the city’s open data venture. “I’m very, very supportive and happy,” Tierney said. “I encourage other entrepreneurs and businesses o get involved in this and start putting boards up all over the place if they want. There is little chance of Beyond 2.0 actually partnering with the city

Mayor’s Report The Older AdulT PlAn By Jim Watson In less than 20 years, the number of seniors in Ottawa will double. In that time, there will be more seniors than children under the age of 15 for the first time in our city’s history. This means even more seniors will be taking transit, visiting libraries and registering for recreation programs. It also means that our city will enjoy the priceless benefits of the skills and knowledge that come with older adults who volunteer their time in community activities. Looking ahead, the key will be building an age-friendly city, one that puts issues that matter to seniors at front of mind. We need to set the right priorities to help older adults reach their full potential. This is why the City of Ottawa has recently launched its Older Adult Plan, a set of actions that we will take to create a more age-friendly city. It is the product of about two years of hard work and consultations with older adults and service providers. Our work began in 2011 when I hosted the Mayor’s Seniors Summit at City Hall, which was a commitment I made in the last election. The event was the first in a series of valuable discussions

about how the City can better serve older adults and how we need to plan for the future. The Older Adult Action Plan commits the City of Ottawa to 74 concrete actions over the next two years in priority areas such as outdoor spaces, transportation, housing, communication, recreation, civic participation and social inclusion. For example, work has already begun on installing more accessible features in City facilities. We have also published an Older Adult Activity Guide to connect residents with recreation programs. You will soon start to see improvements made for pedestrian safety, access to volunteer opportunities and a wide range of other areas to enrich the lives of older adults. This is just the beginning, but we are on the right track. In fact, we were recently recognized by the World Health Organization, which added Ottawa as a member of its Global Network of Age-Friendly Cities. If you are interested in reading the Older Adult Action Plan, printed copies are available by calling 3-1-1 or e-mailing seniors@ottawa. ca. You can also find out more by visiting

Mutchmor addition gets OK Laura Mueller

EMC news - A large, modern addition to Mutchmor Public School in the Glebe is fine by the city’s new heritage committee on March 20. The 789-square-metre, two-storey addition will deal with overcrowding at the school by adding at least nine new classrooms where there is currently a paved yard. There is also a possibility of adding three additional classrooms in the basement. The first portion of the school was built in 1895 and represents a “great example” of Romanesque revival architectural style, said city heritage planner Lesley Collins. The city designated it as a heritage building in 2000. Because of the positioning of the addition and the inclusion of the courtyard, the addition will only touch the older portion of the school where the entrance is constructed on Fifth Avenue. That will help preserve the integrity of the heritage building, Collins said. The flat-roofed addition was designed by local architect Barry Hobin and features large windows and coloured metal panels, as well as red brick to match the rest of the building. Collins said she supports the proposed addition because its modern, glass-filled design is sympathetic to and distinct from the heritage portion of the school. “It is physically and visually compatible to the original building, and it’s subordinate… it’s lower, and it’s distinguishable as a modern addition,” Collins said. Local advocacy group Heritage Ottawa supports the design of the addition. The addition will also make the school more accessible. The entrance will feature a ramp and there will be an elevator in the addition. The project is set to cost the public school board $7 million, although the final figure won’t be known until the design is approved by planning committee and council. Construction is supposed to take between 11 and 14 months and will be completed by September of 2014.

New committee OK’s conversion of Lowertown office Union du Canada tower to add four floors, become hotel Laura Mueller

EMC news - The Union du Canada building on Dalhousie might be an iconic part of Lowertown’s skyline, but it’s not an attractive part, the city’s new heritage committee says. The committee, which is made up of four councillors and three members of the public, supported a renovation to update the 1960s-era tower at the corner of York Street by adding four floors and converting it into a hotel. The project is a good example of the adaptive re-use of an existing building in the heritage district, and the changes are warranted because

the 11-storey office tower doesn’t relate to the other heritage buildings in the area. Since it’s already out of place among the early 19th-century lowrise buildings that dominate the ByWard Market, it might as well become taller and more attractive, city heritage staff recommended. The committee unanimously agreed. “It clearly is out of scale and not sympathetic to the neighbours … we wouldn’t approve it today,” said Leo (Sandy) Smallwood, a public member of the committee. “It has now developed as part of the context of the neighbourhood.” Changing the building and ensuring it continues to be used will “strengthen the story of Lowertown,” said Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder, chairwoman of the built heritage subcommittee. The decision must still receive the approval of the planning committee and city council. But community members are bemoaning the loss of a piece of

almost 150 years, said Lowertown Community Association president Marc Aubin in a press release. “This organization, started as a mutual aid society, was involved in the francophone community’s struggles to protect its linguistic and educational rights and to resist the assimilation of French-Canadians in Ontario,” Aubin wrote. A heritage assessment of the building that was included as part of the heritage conservation district for the area in the early 1990s rated the Union du Canada building as having little to no heritage value. That review was conducted more than 20 years ago, said Lowertown Community Association member Mario Gasperetti, when there was a different understanding of “heritage value.” “I fear that council seems to be making decisions based on a very old document that might not reflect current ideas about architecture,” he told the committee on March 20. Indeed, heritage staff and councillors noted that Ottawa recently designated an entire district of buildings from the same era in the east-end Briarcliffe neighbourhood, making

the city one of, if not the first in Canada to recognize an entire district of mid-century buildings as “heritage.” Katherine Grechuta from Fotenn, a planning consultant who represents the developer, Claridge, said the heritage impact study the developer had to conduct found changing the building would not impact the rest of the heritage district in the ByWard Market, so Claridge wants to convert it to have “a more modern response to the exterior.” Grechuta said the conversion will make the tall building fit in more harmoniously with the streetscape. The city is requiring Claridge to install a plaque inside the lobby describing the building’s heritage. Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs, who sits on the committee, worried that the changes would eradicate an element of the building that architectural experts consider to be an artistic achievement: the angled windows. The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada, among others, wrote to councillors urging them to consider respecting the work of Laure Major, an artist who created two murals in the lobby of the building, and who also collaborated with the architect, Louis Lapierre, to create the unique pattern of the reflective windows. Jim Burghout of Claridge said the windows are in bad shape and must be replaced anyway, but the angled pattern doesn’t lend itself to the building’s use as a hotel, so the angled pattern won’t be replicated. The project also includes a neighbouring condo tower that will be debated separately at an upcoming planning committee meeting. The local councillor, Mathieu Fleury, was unable to comment on the plans because he has a conflict of interest due to his father’s employment with Claridge.

Libraries bursting at the seams with held items

EMC news - The library is grappling with the problem of truant readers who put items on hold and never pick them up. Minor changes to the circulation policy at the Ottawa Public Library sparked a debate and led the library board to send staff back to the drawing board on March 18. The board shot down library staff’s proposal to remove limits on the number of audio-visual items such as CDs and DVDs that a library user can have checked out at once. The idea is a way to get around challenges that arise from people putting large numbers of those items on hold and checking them out in sequence. That leads to delays for other customers and it means items are out of circulation for long periods as they’re being processed, said Jennifer Stirling, the divisionwide manager of service and innovation for the library. “Our circulation is being impacted by our own policy,” she said.

Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder, the board’s chairwoman, said the number of holds is increasing and it is becoming a problem at the library. “The hold business is taking up huge real estate in our libraries,” she said, adding that some branches have maxed out the amount of space they have available to store items that people put on hold. “I think this is a bigger issue,” she added. But the problems are caused by a small number of guilty parties, said board member Christine Langlois. Library board member Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson said the issue could have been solved another way: by putting a limit on the number of items a person can put on hold at one time or adding a fine for people who don’t pick up held items when they become available, she said. “I worry about this,” Wilkinson said of the staff proposal to remove check-out limits. “Somebody could take out 200 … It makes them unavailable for others.” Board member Danielle

Lussier-Meek was also concerned because she anticipated people who rack up expensive late fines if they had too many materials checked out at one time. “It’s unreasonable to have no limits,” Lussier-Meek said. “There could be abuse of the system.” That shouldn’t be a problem because the library alerts people before the return date and it is easy to renew items to extend the due date, staff said. At the end of the day, library users are responsible for their own accounts. Library staff agreed to come back with a different set of recommendations in May relating to the issue of holds and circulation limits on audio-visual materials. Two other changes did get the library board’s approval: the addition of a $5 per hour fine (up to $30) if people keep iPads in branches for longer than their two-hour loan period and a new $10-per-day fine (up to $50) for reference materials. New iPads were introduced at the North Gloucester, RoseFile mount and Ruth E. Dickinson The Ottawa Public Library is looking at how to encourage people to pick up items they branches last year. put on hold, especially CDs and DVDs.

Imagine Gala to fundraise in memory of Ottawa constable Brier Dodge

EMC news - Const. Karla Santos always thought big when it came to fighting brain cancer. “She always said, ‘Imagine there was a cure,’” said her sister-in-law, Leah Harding. “She would do anything to help someone in need.” Santos passed away in June, but her husband, Adam Collins, and his siblings are keeping the fight alive for her with the Imagine Gala, which will be held April 6 at the National Arts Centre, a fundraiser for the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada. Harding is one of the four siblings, including Adam, Tim Collins and Sara Mormul, who are planning the event. Last year Harding, Mormum and Tim organized the Fight for Karla to raise money for the family while Santos was in the hospital. Held at the Nepean Sportsplex, over 500 people came out in support.


City Councillor, Kanata North FEDERAL BUDGET Several weeks ago I attended Committee Meetings of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM). At that meeting we had a confidential briefing on what the federal government had indicated to FCM would be in the budget and as it turned out, they came through with everything. Of particular significance is indexing the gas tax funds received by municipalities (presently $50 million for Ottawa) starting in 2014-15 at 2% annually. As Ottawa is using these funds to pay for the Light Rail project, that is particularly good news. They have also extended the Building Canada Fund used for major infrastructure projects in Ottawa to 2023, although it is not indexed. That fund will likely be used for projects to reduce sewage from entering the Ottawa River. They will also continue to rebate HST paid by the City.

Now Adam wants to pay it forward and give back to the Brain Tumour Foundation

As Chair of the Board of Ottawa Housing, I was particularly pleased that they are renewing critical housing programs and reaffirming the federal role in addressing the challenges of housing affordability and homelessness.


Despite the four siblings living in different areas – Harding near Navan, Tim in Kingston, Mormul in Peterborough – they put long distance phone bills aside and got busy planning an event for Santos and Adam, both Ottawa police officers. “It was huge, it blew our minds. Now Adam wants to pay it forward and give back to the Brain Tumour Foundation,” Harding said. “There really aren’t a lot of treatment options.” Santos was a police officer who worked out of the Elgin Street Station and had already fought brain cancer twice before being diagnosed for a third time shortly after the birth of her second daughter, Ainsley. She was hospitalized in February 2012, about eight months after Aisnley’s birth, and stayed in the hospital until June 22 of this past summer, when she passed away. Her daughters Ainsley, now 2, and Ella, 5, will be at the event start of the event, but will later be tucked in bed by relatives, as the all-evening soiree will be a late night. It will have a three-course dinner, silent auction, live music and dancing. The silent auction includes signed Coldplay and Dallas Green of City and Colour albums. Both bands were some of Santos’ favou-

Details on how this funding will be allocated will be available later, but having the government accept that they have a role in helping municipalities provide and maintain the critical infrastructure that is needed to serve communities and businesses – which in turn provides the funding the federal government receives – is a major step forward.


Leah Harding holds up a poster for the Imagine Gala, a fundraiser being held for the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada in memory of her late sister-in-law, Const. Karla Santos. rites, and the ones she would respond to in the hospital, even after she lost her ability to speak and most of her motor skills. The usually still Santos would move, or look over at her husband when the songs came on, Harding said. At a recent Coldplay concert, lead singer Chris Martin dedicated a song to Santos and Adam. Other aspects of her will be incorporated into the gala, from her love of live music

and social events, to decorating with tulips, her favourite flower, and stars, which she loved. “That’s what she is now,” Harding said. “A star in the sky.” There are 250 tickets for sale for the Imagine Gala, with a portion already sold. Tickets cost $100. To purchase tickets or donate to the Imagine Gala, visit or email

ACORN demands $14/hour minimum wage Tyler Costello

EMC news - A small group of protests from the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, known as ACORN Ottawa, took to Preston Street to launch their campaign to have Ontario’s minimum wage increased to $14 an hour, March 21. “Hey-hey, ho-ho, poverty wages have got to go, $10.25 is way too low,” was chanted by protestors as some drivers honked to show their approval for the “honk to raise the minimum wage” sign. The group of about 20, braving the snow and wind outside the provincial Ministry of Labour offices, took turns addressing those gathered. Event organizer Nadia Willard explained that 534,000 workers in Ontario make minimum wage, nearly one out of ten workers. “The three-year freeze on minimum wage has effectively lowered their income by seven per cent,” she said, referring to the provincial government’s decision to freeze minimum wage in 2011. “This will help everyone in our community from small business people to workers and families if the minimum wage is increased,” said Willard. “You shouldn’t have to be going to the food bank if you’re working fulltime.” Megan Holliday, a minimum wage worker and ACORN member, shared her experience working at the current minimum


ACORN Canada launches their campaign to have Ontario’s minimum wage increased to $14 an hour outside the Ministry of Labour office on Preston Street on March 21. wage, an experience that eventually led her to move back in with her parents. Most of those in attendance were members of ACORN, but one man representing CUPE was in attendance as well as Sean McKenny, president of the Ottawa and District Labour Council. “If a person could live a month making what is currently our minimum wage, they would see how difficult it is,” said McKenny after the event. “Everything is going up yet you still have folks that are stuck in that minimum wage, they don’t have the benefit of any kind of collective agreement or any kind of contract with the employer … they’re working for that minimum wage, no benefits, it’s really the bare minimum,” he

said. Mahdi Mohammed, who joined ACORN after having trouble with his landlord, expressed one of the themes of the protest, that increasing the minimum wage will help all of Ontarians. “I think the economy all around would get better instead of getting sucked up by the top one per cent, it will get spread, people will get more money, and they’ll spend more on the businesses, so it will help everybody,” said Mohammed. ACORN Canada is an independent national organization of low and moderate income families which, according to their website, has over 40,000 members across the country. Ontario, British Columbia

and Manitoba are tied for the highest minimum wage of the provinces at $10.25 an hour, while Alberta has the lowest at $9.75. Nunavut’s minimum wage is $11 an hour. Naqvi defended the government’s position in a release sent to the Ottawa East News. “Our government increased the minimum wage almost 50 per cent since 2003. It was only fair after being frozen for nine years under previous governments,” Naqvi said in the statement. “We recognize that there is more to do,” he stated, pointing to future discussions with business, labour and community groups as a means to determine an appropriate minimum wage in the future.

EMC news - We’ve all heard the saying, “if it looks too good to be true, it probably is”. But when it comes to investments, how do you know what’s too good to be true? “Investment fraud can be devastating financially, but research also shows that it can affect your emotional and physical well-being, says Tom Hamza, president of the Investor Education Fund (IEF). “Knowing how to recognize a scam can help you protect your savings.” Here are four signs that an investment might be a scam: • You can make a lot of money with no risk. Investments that are considered low risk typically have returns close to current Guaranteed Investment Certificate (GIC) rates. If your expected return is higher than this, you’re taking more risk with your money. • It’s a hot tip or insider information. If the hot tip is false, you will lose your money if you act on it.

Round two for Cullen’s NDP bid Trustee wants more

powers for ombudsman

Laura Mueller

EMC news - After a failed bid to return to provincial politics in the Ottawa Centre riding, former city councillor Alex Cullen will now seek the NDP nomination in Ottawa West-Nepean. The riding association sought him out after he lost the Ottawa Centre nomination to public school board chairwoman Jennifer McKenzie. While Cullen admitted that the left-wing party has a better chance in Ottawa Centre than in Ottawa West-Nepean, he said he’s ready to stand for an election he expects to come sometime this year. “It’s the riding where I live. It’s the riding where I have a lot of political capital,” Cullen said. “I am pretty confident that I will get that nomination.” His first campaign in Ottawa West-Nepean was actually a successful run for the Liberals in a 1997 byelection. Cullen left that

party and sat as an independent, but later vacated the seat and ran for the Ontario NDP in Ottawa West-Nepean in the next election. If he is successful in gaining the Ontario NDP’s nomination in Ottawa West-Nepean, he would be running against MPP Bob Chiarelli, who served as mayor while Cullen was a city councillor, as well as Progressive Conservative Randall Denley, a former city-hall columnist for the Ottawa Citizen. “We are three middleaged white guys who know each other too well,” Cullen said. The nomination is uncontested, as far as Cullen knows. Wendy Byrne represented the party in the 2011 election. Ottawa West-Nepean has often been held by the Liberals provincially. Chiarelli has held the seat since 2010. Before that, Mayor Jim Watson held Ottawa West-Nepean for the Liberals from 2003 to 2010.

ALEX CULLEN Federally, Conservative John Baird has held the riding since 2006. Cullen said the NDP still has a chance in the riding even thought it hasn’t had a strong showing in the past. The Liberals have been discredited by financial mismanagement scandals, Cullen said, and the Conservatives are too polarizing with right-wing “slash-and-burn” politics. “I am expecting a threeway fight. It’s not the same situation as in Ottawa Centre where the NDP have come a strong second,” Cullen said. “I wouldn’t count us out.” No nomination date has been set for the Ottawa West-Nepean NDP riding association. The riding association president, Marlene Rivier, could not be reached before deadline to confirm whether Cullen is the only candidate. If is not successful in

gaining the NDP nomination in Ottawa West-Nepean, Cullen said he does not intend to seek further nominations in other ridings. “That would be it for the provincial election,” he said. After his last foray into provincial politics, Cullen returned to city council before making a failed run at the mayor’s seat during the 2010 municipal election. When he withdrew from the mayoral race late in the campaign and attempted to return as Bay Ward’s representative, it was too late for him to gain momentum and he lost to Mark Taylor. He has since been working as an assistant to NDP MP Mike Sullivan on Parliament Hill. Cullen began his public life as a school trustee and served as a regional and city councillor in the 1990s. 0328.

EMC news – A south Ottawa trustee is pushing to give the Ontario ombudsman extra authority to investigate and intervene in complaints that aren’t resolved within the school boards. Mark Fisher, public trustee for Gloucester-Southgate, brought forward a motion that seeks support from his fellow trustees to write a letter to the premier and leaders of the official opposition, asking them to reintroduce and support legislation to modernize the Ombudsman act. If passed the law would allow the ombudsman to investigate public complaints involving school boards as well as the governing bodies of universities, hospitals and municipalities. “Over the last few years, we have experienced a number of situations where parents go through a process to get certain complaints resolved, but end up receiving decisions that are not satisfactory to them with no any other lever of recourse that is available to them,” Fisher who was preparing to table his motion on March 19 said. He said many provinces have moved in this direction. “It would provide third-party recourse for parents when conflicts with a school board are left unresolved,” said Fisher. “In our case we’ve got superintendents (who) spearhead most of these investigations. It is basically teachers investigating teachers. I am not sure in all cases that parents are getting as fair hearings as they probably should be and I want to rectify that.” According to the 2011-12 annual report of the ombudsman, Ontario has fallen behind in oversight of organizations providing critical public services referred to as the “MUSH” sector - municipalities (except for the ability to investigate complaints about closed meetings in some cases), universities, school boards, hospitals, nursing homes and long-term care facilities, police, and children’s aid societies. The report said the ombudsman of Ontario’s authority with respect to this sector is the most limited in Canada. While Fisher preferred not to give any specific examples of the cases be-

cause of the privacy around those issues, he noted that majority of them are around bullying and harassment cases between teachers and students. “That is generally the area I hear the most, with parents not feeling satisfied with how situations are handled,” he said. “I think it is important that parents have an independent level of recourse to turn to have another fair impartial hearing about their child situation.” In 2011-12, the ombudsman received a record number of complaints and inquiries about the MUSH sector. During the same period, the ombudsman received 119 complaints and inquiries about Ontario’s school boards. None of them could be dealt with. Many were from parents concerned about things like student suspensions, lack of adequate special education supports, the treatment of students with autism, insufficient consultation about school closures, and inadequate responses to bullying. These complaints had to be turned away or referred elsewhere. “I am going to make the case and see whether trustees will support the motion itself. My job is to put it on the table and make the pitch on why I think it is important and hopefully, people will see that it is the right thing to do,” said Fisher. Since 2005, there have been nine private member’s bills calling for expanded ombudsman oversight over various MUSH areas. To date, none have progressed into law. “There is multi-party support around this and I think it will be a good signal if a school board can send a signal to the legislature to say – We agree with you,” said Fisher. “We all know that the ombudsman’s office is the avenue of last resort. I am not proposing that Ombudsman take over the complaint process within a school board, it is just providing that additional back stop that gives parents a little more fair and impartial hearing.” Fisher said it was discomforting seeing Ontario behind the trend in Canada in terms of modernizing the ombudsman responsibilities and giving them the authority to look at the MUSH sector.

Future of Rockcliffe base discussed Michelle Nash


Canada Lands Company will hold its second round of public consultation concerning the former Rockcliffe air base on May 25. This consultation will focus on design ideas and concepts. begin has yet to be determined, but Schultz has been meeting with various resident associations, organizations, city officials and site neighbours, including the National Research Council, which has agreed for Canada Lands to incorporate some of its lands into the development planning, in an effort to create more access to the future community. “Our understanding was there were concerns with Hemlock Road access, but that is why we are working on different alternatives, the more access we have the more we can disperse the traffic,” Schultz said. The team has also been working at creating public advisory groups, with an established group of community associations and residents who live next to the site already in place, as well as one for nearby neighbours, one on housing and development and a group focused on social and arts and culture development. Schultz has also been reaching out to the four school boards to determine the needs for schools on the land.

In the past, Schultz said, Canada Lands has redevelopment other former bases - all of which Schultz said have included multiple affordable housing options. According to Schultz, the Algonquins of Ontario and Canada Lands have an agreement concerning development on the site, which includes a commemoration of the history of the Algonquin people, participation in all stages of the concept development, land use planning and detailed design, and the use of qualified Algonquin companies for the project.

EMC news - The next public consultation concerning redevelopment on the former Rockcliffe air base is set to take place in May. Development planning for the former Canadian Forces Base Rockcliffe is moving ahead as scheduled, with the Canada Lands Company prepared to hold its second public consultation at the Hampton Inn in Overbrook on May 25. According to Don Schultz, a director for Canada Lands, the consultation will offer area residents the chance to roll up their sleeves and participate in a workshop that will showcase preliminary designs for the new site. “We are working on different design ideas for the new community,” Schultz said. “We are going to want to hear from people in response to the different alternative design ideas and we are going to want to find out what they think are the positive aspects of these designs.” The workshop will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and residents wishing to attend must pre-register online at www., or by calling Schultz at 613-998-7765. If residents do not have all day to spend discussing design elements, Schultz said not to worry as his team has constructed the consultation to meet anyone’s needs, with a less formal, drop in option available where people can meet with Rockcliffe Lands team members, look at the designs and updates since the last public consultation took place in November. “We want to provide as many different opportunities for people to get informed and get up-to-date,” Schultz said. The last consultation, dubbed the “ideas fair,” was well attended, with more than 650 turning out to the event at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum to meet the project team and to look at the preliminary findings and plans for the 136 hectares of land. Since that evening, the management team has summarized the comments made. “A lot of the concerns were made around transportation,” Schultz said, adding he believes that by working with the city, the concern could be addressed by creating excellent access to public transit, including creating a transit corridor through the site. Another hot topic the team heard, he added, was affordable housing: people want to be sure that both market-affordable and community housing options are made available

The Governor General said he has a soft spot for women’s hockey – all of his five daughters played growing up. “Each grew up with a hockey stick in their hands,” he said. “It’s so wonderful to see young girls taking such interest.” Hockey Canada president Bob Nicholson said hockey has come a long was since the first women’s world championships.

Carleton students gather to celebrate CIS championship Tyler Costello

EMC sports – Ottawa will host nine Federation of International Football Association Women’s World Cup matches, including a quarterfinal game, the association announced on March 21. Fans can now mark their calendars with the world’s largest women’s football tournament, which will dominate the Canadian landscape from June 6 to July 5, 2015. “As the largest single sports event for women in the world, and the first single sport event in Canada, we are excited to host the FIFA Women’s World Cup”, Mayor Jim Watson said in a statement. “Ottawa is once again the stage for a major sporting event that will attract the eyes of the world.” For the first time, the 2015 tournament will welcome 24 teams from around the world, a milestone in women’s soccer as the game continues to grow in all regions of the globe. Ottawa will host two games on June 7, two on June 11 and two on June 17, along with two round-of-16 matches on June 20 and June 22 and a quarterfinal on June 26. John Pugh, president of the Ottawa Fury Football Club, Ottawa’s North American Soccer League franchise, said soccer fans and the country are looking forward to the competition. “Our women were a great success at the Olympics and that captured the nation’s excitement and definitely this event is going to be an amazing one,” said Pugh. “If we all enjoyed the 2007 U-20 men’s event, this is going to be the same as that, but magnified many times over because of the number of teams that are participating.” He hopes Team Canada can win on home soil. The games will be played at the

new Lansdowne Park stadium. In a release, Noel Buckley, president and CEO of Ottawa Tourism said the event is a great opportunity to showcase Ottawa to the world. “Hosting nine regular games and a quarterfinal game in a newly built stadium at Lansdowne Park will not just be a major economic boost to the region, it will inspire the next generation of local soccer players to pursue this exciting sport.” The competition will kick off with the opening ceremony and opening matches in Edmonton. In total, 52 matches will be played over 30 days from coast to coast in six venues. The final match will be played in Vancouver. The qualification matches will begin in April. As host country, Canada will not play qualification games. Team Canada coach John Herdman is optimistic his team put on a great show. “Being in Canada, the whole set of play is going to give us a competitive advantage,” he said. But to do well, the team will rely on support from the home crowd, he added. He said the event provides a once –in-a-lifetime opportunity for the players. “What you hear from the players - the ones that understand what this means is, they want to do everything they can to leave the best impression possible for everyone in Canada,” said Herdman. Canada finished without a win in the 2011 World Cup. The national organizing committee announced that the highly sought-after tickets will go on sale in the third quarter of 2014.

Public weighs in on 1812 monument finalists Two concepts judged for 2014 Parliament Hill installation Steph Willems

EMC news – As part of the federal government’s effort to recognize the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812, two artists unveiled their monument concepts for public viewing last week. Residents were invited into the National Capital Commission’s Elgin Street offices on March 20 to cast a critical eye on the designs, which were chosen as finalists by a jury of fine arts, heritage and landscape architecture experts. The War of 1812 monument design process is being led by the NCC in partnership with Canadian Heritage. Artists Adrienne Alison of Ontario and Brian Cooley of Alberta were present to discuss the aspects of their designs, both of which incorporate references to the diverse mix of cultures that took part

in the conflict. A spot has been chosen for the monument overlooking Wellington Street near the East Block on Parliament Hill. Cooley’s concept depicts 20 bronze figures – First Nations warriors, British infantrymen, French Canadian voltigeurs, African–Canadian soldiers and a female nurse bandaging a patient. Cooley wanted to ensure the role of women in the conflict was referenced. While the actions of noted figure Laura Secord are well-recorded in history books, Cooley said he wanted to commemorate “all the other women who did so much and never got recognized.” The figures in the monument would be six feet tall in full-size form, atop an eightinch stone base. Alison’s work, titled Triumph Through Diversity, consists of seven figures (representing key demographics)

The two finalists in the federal government’s War of 1812 Monument competition are seen during an open house at the offices of the NCC on March 20. Artists Adrienne Alison and Brian Cooley were on hand to explain their concepts, while public feedback was recorded for the final judging process. on a central stone flanked by two small, granite boats. Etchings in the stone would further tell the story of the conflict. “(The base) is only 18 inches tall, so people can sit on it in the summer,” said Alison, explaining how the site’s close proximity to the National War Memorial led

her to decide to go with a tight group of figures for her concept. Alison said she tried to represent the cultures involved in the British side of the conflict “as much as you could,” adding “I wanted it to be something that was educational, easy to understand, which is

why I wanted the etching.” The full-size monument’s figures would be seven feet tall atop a two-foot-tall pedestal. Residents were encouraged to record their thoughts on a large sheet of butcher’s paper, which was spread across a large table in the centre of the room.

“All of the information from (the open house) will be shared with our client, Canadian Heritage,” said NCC spokesman Charles Cardinal. While no date has been set for the announcement of the winner, Cardinal said the monument is slated to be unveiled in its Parliament Hill location in the fall of 2014.

“It’s a weak point already,” Sacks said. “If you reduce the driveway or parking, the city will have to limit parking on McKay, which reduces our assurances we have been getting from you that there will be enough parking surrounding the building.” Many of the concerns raised will be addressed during the city’s site plan review process, said Bliss Edwards, the city planner working on the project. This did not ease the minds of residents gathered at the event however, with many continually raising the same issues during the question and answer period. Minto presented its proposal at the top of the meeting, which featured small changes from the initial design presented to the public in January at a community association-led consultation. Included in these are spaces for more retail stores on the site, additional sidewalk

Units will more than likely be purchased by people seeking to downsize, or younger professionals who do not own a car or prefer to use transit Jack said. The design of the Minto building is an eight-storey mixed-use development with retail planned for Beechwood Avenue. It also features an open courtyard at the corner of Beechwood and McKay with residential space facing McKay Street. Preliminary plans predict 157 residential units and 188 parking spaces, with some surface parking at the rear of the building for the retail stores, accessed on McKay Street. The building design is a glass and concrete structure, stepping back from the street five-storeys up, to give the appearance of a smaller building. One of the biggest concerns for residents is the proposed driveway used to access the building.

EMC news - Traffic and retail space remained top priorities for those residents who attended the most recent Beechwood fire site meeting in New Edinburgh on March 19. At the city-led public consultation for a proposed eightstorey mixed use building to be located at 7-23 Beechwood Ave. and 409-411 McKay St., residents expressed concerns about parking, traffic and a lack of retail space after looking at the updated designs. “If you turn all the traffic out to McKay, you are going to put a lot of pressure on that street,” said David Sacks, president of the New Edinburgh Community Alliance, at the St. Bartholomew’s hall event. Consulting firm Delcan prepared the traffic analysis for the site and Ron Jack, vice president of the Ottawa office, attended the meeting to discuss the findings with residents. “This project is located on a good transit corridor,” Jack said. In total, according to Delcan, it’s estimated 30 to 45 cars worth of traffic per hour will

space along Beechwood and McKay and adjustments to the building materials that make the brick portions lighter. Brent Strachan, vice president of development at Minto, said the developer is currently entertaining the retail prospective for the site. Architect Prishram Jain from the Toronto firm TACT Architecture Inc. said he has designed a building aimed to fit into the neighbourhood. Some residents said they didn’t believe he had met that goal. “Everything seems out of touch, what fits?” Katherine Greer-Close said. Jain answered it was his professional opinion that the colour, look and feel of the building was complementary to the street. Some in the crowd said they appreciated the design, including New Edinburgh resident Dale Smith, who used to own an art gallery on Beechwood. “I don’t mind the colour, Beechwood is a monochromatic street and I think that when you get used to this, it will be OK,” Smith said. “I’m encouraged that Minto has responded to some of our concerns, I’m hopeful this will continue.” Smith went on to say that she is older and more inclined to like something typical of what was built three years ago, but that she is also a pragmatist and the new building will find its place in the neighbourhood. A desire to see retailers return to the location was also expressed by residents. Since the March 2011 fire that devastated the site, a local food service, watch repair shop, dry cleaners, barber shop, diner and a Home Hardware store were lost. Residents pleaded with the Minto representatives at the meeting to bring back small, local shops to the area. Construction would not be complete until either late 2015 or early 2016. Strachan also told the crowd that the purchase for the site is not yet final.

Fundraising campaign nets college visit from Rick Mercer Steph Willems

EMC news – Algonquin College students got their close-up on March 18, and for a good reason. The school received a visit from CBC television personality Rick Mercer, who was taping an episode of The Rick Mercer Report on campus following the release of fundraising numbers for his Spread the Net Student Challenge. Of all the post-secondary campuses involved in the anti-malaria initiative, Algonquin came out on top, with $40,394 raised through the actions and donations of students and staff. The school’s goal was $15,000. A group of very enthusiastic students gathered in the Algonquin Commons Theatre to await the fundraising total and the appearance of the challenge’s creator. David Corson, president of the Algonquin Students’ Association, called the occasion “a celebration of hard work,” describing how the whole thing started last year when a student approached him with both a dream and a plan to make it happen. “We said ‘what can we do,’ and it looks like everyone else said the same thing,” said Corson. “We had two months in which to achieve what we did, and that shows the size of the heart of Algonquin … You all came together – it’s amazing. You inspire me every day.” Algonquin College president Kent MacDonald praised his students for their generosity and energy, explaining that those qualities will take them places. “Every single one of us can

Algonquin College students, pictured with their mascot Thunder Cat, went wild for television personality Rick Mercer when he visited the college on March 18.

Television personality Rick Mercer brought his CBC show The Rick Mercer Report to Algonquin College on March 18, where he welcomed organizers and participants in the Spread the Net Student Challenge. be a leader in an organization like this,” said MacDonald. “The staff and faculty decided this was so important that they brought the idea forward,

they had a dream and a goal, and you’ll hear shortly that it was greatly surpassed.” MacDonald congratulated the students for taking the ini-

tiative to take their learning outside the classroom, and for affecting change in the lives of people they’ve never met. Mercer – with his trusty

cameraman – arrived onstage in distinctive showman’s style, walking out from behind an ascending panel, backlit, with artificial fog to amplify the effect. The students responded in a big way. “I realized when we started this contest that it was kind of an unfair contest,” admitted Mercer, describing how from the outset the winning school would be the one to get the publicity. However, he said, students

didn’t seem to care. “They believe in this, they believe in (Spread the Net), they believe it can happen, students like yourself,” said Mercer, describing the $1.1 million raised countrywide by students who supported the initiative. “You might be the biggest school in Canada, you might be the biggest college in Canada, but certainly Algonquin College, as far as I am concerned, you are the most generous.”

EMC News - Underdog candidate David Bertschi announced his resignation from the federal Liberal leadership race at a press conference March 21.

The decision was reached after his campaign staff, “realized there was a lack of support needed to win the nomination,” said Leo Bourdon, director of communications for Bertschi’s campaign. Bertschi becomes the third candidate to drop out after

George Takach and MP Marc Garneau called it quits earlier this month. There are now six candidates left in the running. Although Takach and Garneau put their support behind MP Justin Trudeau, Bertschi will not make an endorse-

ment, preferring to let the supporters of the party decide, said Bourdon. The Ottawa-based human rights lawyer, who unsuccessfully ran as the Liberal Party’s candidate for the Ottawa-Orleans riding in the last federal election, has

dealt with questions about his campaign after his campaign manager and financial agent quit earlier this month. Bertschi will run for the Liberal nomination in the Ottawa-Orleans riding in the next federal election, said Bourdon.

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.

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

PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20

Pisces, a tangled web is forming around you, but with quick wit you will manage to steer clear of the melee.
