consider that,” said Michele Green, Canada Day in Kanata president and event organizer in a text message. Organizers have raised only 40 per cent of their target: $100,000 in cash donations and $50,000 in in-kind contributions, money needed to keep the July 1 festivities running.

A number of sponsors couldn’t provide cash donations, while others reduced their contribution amounts. “Every time a sponsor does not return or reduces the amount of sponsorship it leaves a significant hole in our budget bucket that requires filling,” said Green.

SMALL BUSINESS CHALLENGE

Continued from page 1

“Since most of our board members have full-time jobs as well as working on Canada Day in Kanata, it is a great deal of added pressure to raise the additional funds,” said Green. The title sponsor slot, at $20,000, is still available and Green said she’s hoping someone will step forward to fill the role. “We are resigned to the fact that at this late date we won’t find too many ‘big dollar’ sponsors, but if 100 $250 sponsors or 25 $500 sponsors would adequately fill the hole in our budget bucket,” she said. “If every household in Kanata donated just a loonie or a toonie we wouldn’t have to be having this conversation every year.” The Canada Day event is not a city-funded event and is run entirely by volunteers. “Without sponsorship there would be no event,” said Green. “This event is funded 100 per cent through sponsorships, donations and grants.”

The Challenge is On!

SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

Free

A number of sponsorship opportunities are available, including: • Fireworks: $12,000 • Platinum: $5,000 • Gold: $3,000 • Silver: $1,500 • Chrome: $1,000

energy assessment, up-to $1,500 of energy-efficient lighting, and a touchscreen, programmable thermostat.

TRAVIS FISCH

The Canada Day in Kanata committee is still looking to fill 60 per cent of its funding for this year’s event after a number of sponsors backed out. The July 1 festivities, held at Walter Baker Park, attract an average of 30,000 people each year. • Bronze: $500 • Friends and Neighbours: up to $500 Depending on the level of sponsorship, the Canada Day in Kanata committee offers onsite signage, company advertising on its website, onsite booth space and public announcements, logos on its flyers, and

VIP tickets to the Top of the Hill, said Green. “We strive to support local business whenever possible, and many of our event vendors and suppliers are local. As well, the majority of our programming and entertainment is supplied by local organizations and artists,” said Green. The all-day festival sees an average of 25,000 to 30,000 visitors each year, with people coming from all over the city and as far away as Detroit, said Green. “Canada Day in Kanata provides members of our community and surrounding communities an opportunity to celebrate being Canadian in our own neighborhood. There is something for everyone; great daytime activities and entertainment, good food, beer tent, amusement rides – all within close proximity to their homes. “No traffic or massive crowds to deal with,” she added. “Folks can come out and enjoy some of the daytime activities, take their little ones home for a nap and come back for an awesome stage show, this year featuring Trooper, and the best fireworks display outside of downtown.” Three years ago, the committee was unsure about the future of Canada Day in Kanata and there was talk 2010 would be the end of the event. But sponsorship picked up and the event continued. “This is a concern every year,” said Green. “Next year will be our 10th year and we struggle to secure sponsorship each and every year.” Green added the committee is also looking for someone with WordPress experience to take over content management on the Canada Day in Kanata website. Onsite donations will also be accepted on July 1. For details and other sponsorship opportunities, visit canadadayinkanata.com or email Green at michelegreen@rogers.com. Canada Day in Kanata is held at Walter Baker Park, off Terry Fox Drive, and admission is free.

EMC news - The Kanata North community town hall meeting highlighted many projects taking place in the ward on April 29. Construction on the West District Library, formerly the Beaverbrook branch, has closed the front entrance of the Mlacak Centre. People can enter the building through the arena entrance, which is on the left side of the main doors. The front entrance will be closed until September, said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson. Construction is “going to really start moving,” said Wilkinson. “It’s going to be nice when it’s finished.” The Kanata Civic Art Gallery, Wilkinson’s ward office, the arena and Kanata Seniors Centre continue to run as normal.

Fun Fest in the Far West Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - The third-annual Far West Fun Fest kicked off with a community breakfast on Thursday, May 2. This year, 147 people signed up for the numerous activities and events, organized by the Kanata Seniors Council and hosted by retirement residents, the legion, city facilities and golf and lawn bowling clubs. “We had no idea it would ever snowball to this size,” said event co-chair Kay Dubie. “There’s just so much enthusiasm.” The first year, around 60 people signed up

for the two-weeks worth of events, with the second year bringing in close to 100 seniors. “It’s a lot of work but it’s a lot of fun,” said Dubie, who worked with event co-chair Liz Tucker. “They all have such a good time.” Events include a photo rally where photographers are invited to capture 12 subjects, a bingo tournament, flower arranging and fitness activities. “It’s hugely social,” said Dubie. “You build friendships.” The Far West Fun Fest will wrap up with its closing ceremony on May 16, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Kanata Seniors Centre.

Golf tournament raises funds for Condors Second annual event helps support special needs hockey team Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

Funds raised at the second annual Condors Classic Golf Tournament, to be held June 3 at the GreyHawk Golf Club, will go towards ice time and registration costs for the hockey team for special needs youth. Ottawa Senators player Kyle Turris and a few of his teammates joined the team for on-ice drills and a scrimmage last year.

EMC news - The second annual Condors Classic Golf Tournament is continuing to raise funds to keep its hockey program on the ice. The Capital City Condors is a hockey team for special needs youth, with groups in the west and east ends of the city. Funds raised through the golf tournament, which will be held on June 3 at the GreyHawk Golf Club, will go towards purchasing ice time and to help keep registration costs low. “As the program grows we need more ice every year,” said Shana Perkins, co-founder of the Condors with her husband Jim. Funds will also go towards the 2015 Special Hockey International Tournament, which the Condors will

host. Last year, Ottawa Senators players Matt Carkner and Chris Neil attended the tournament, which drew around 110 golfers. “They went and played a hole with each group,” said Perkins, adding that this year “We’re hoping, depending on how things are going with the playoffs, we’d like to be able to have hopefully (Sens player) Kyle (Turris) and if there’s anyone else he could drag along that would be great.” Turris, the Condors honourary captain, is a big supporter of the hockey team. “Five years ago, a small group of people in Ottawa, headed by my friends Jim and Shana Perkins, realized that there were a bunch of kids who loved hockey ... but they never got to play themselves. They had a physical or intellectual challenge or disability that made hockey something they could only watch,” said Turris in an open invitation letter. A group that started as three players, the Capital City Condors has now grown to almost 80 participants, he said. “It has been an absolute blast getting to know the kids and their families, and especially fun to get on the ice with the Condors teams,” said Turris. “The Condors Classic is a fun day of golf, and an opportunity to recognize these special kids. Together we’ll help raise funds needed to keep this program growing and available to more players.” CONDORS PLAYER TO SPEAK

“We were really pleased and sort of surprised,” Perkins said about last year’s turnout. “We didn’t have very good weather, but we still had a ter-

NIGHT AT THE RACES

The Capital City Condors will also host a Night at the Races on May 23 at the Rideau Carleton Raceway, in partnership with the Ottawa chapter of the Down Syndrome Association. “It’s really a social thing,” said Perkins of the third-annual event. “The point is just for the adults to have a fun night out and we raise a little bit of money at the same time. The event includes a buffet dinner, followed by horse racing for those who want to partake. Tickets are $45 and available online at dsancr.com.

rific day.” This year, tournament organizers are hoping to fill all 144 spots. “They’re going to get to interact with Condors players and they’re actually going to hear one of them speak at the dinner,” said Perkins, adding a parent of a first-time player will also talk about what the team means to her. “This is our biggest fundraising event for the year,” Perkins said. Space is available for 144 golfers for the shotgun start and there is a dinner only option for those who don’t golf but still want to support the cause. Tickets are $200 for an individual or $700 for a foursome and include lunch, golf cart rental, 18 holes and dinner. The dinner only option costs $50. Organizers are also looking for a title sponsor, hole sponsors and silent and live auction items. The event takes place at GreyHawk, which is located at 4999 Boundary Rd., Cumberland.

clean, I guess. The worship songs at the end made me clap my hands and dance a bit with a smile on my face -- authentically, even! In the end, I decided, you know what -- maybe I’ll always be a lousy Christian. Maybe I’ll never be as joyful and faithful and good as the “other Christians.� Or maybe deep down we’re all the same -- wavering between faith and doubt, sin and repentance, quiet ponderings and charismatic worship. So I’m going to keep going for a while because, maybe it’s selfish, but it makes me feel good and I need it -- kind of like going to the gym.

self-disappointment happens to be a function of my Christian heritage. Recently, however, I decided that, whatever my current beliefs or behaviours, my faith is important enough to ensure my daughter is baptised into it. I searched around for a church and decided to return to a downtown community. I don’t usually “return� to a church because I’m always fearful that people will be disappointed, angry or unhelpful, given my prior desertion. Usually, I like to shop around for a new church, a clean slate. But there’s one particular

And you have a baby!� I stood through the contemporary gospel music, took part in the Anglican liturgy, the reading of the gospel, the prayers of the people and finally through communion, and I shed a private tear.

Sometimes I disrespect my parents, work through the Sabbath and forget to forgive people. I’m also uncomfortable talking to non-Christians about my faith, which makes me a terrible evangelist; I’m too private and stiff-upperlipped to wave my hands in the air and chant “Jesus, Jesus,� authentically; and I’m incredibly fickle with my interests. I’ll go for months reading Bible passages, trying to figure it all out. Then in a snap, I’ll exchange the Bible for a business magazines and racy novels.

Even then, all he did was offer a simple analogy about church-going and kickboxing (yes, he’s a kickboxing priest -- cool, huh?). The message was “sometimes it’s hard to get to church/gym, but once you’re there it feels great and you realize how much you need it in your life.� Subtle enough to get me through the doors the following Sunday.

aseball continues to flounder at Ottawa Stadium. Pity the poor fan awaiting the opening pitch of a new season. The sun is shining, the fans are ready, but there’s no team on the field. The stop-start process of trying to snag a AAclass team for Ottawa Stadium has been frustrating. City staff once proposed condominiums for the parking lot, but that was shot down because fans might need somewhere to park once a AA team gets here. In negotiations to bring a high level of baseball back to Ottawa, teams have thrown the city a few curveballs. So far the Ottawa has whiffed. The Fat Cats of the Intercounty Baseball League were kicked out of the stadium because the city wanted to renovate prior to the arrival of AA ball. Now that AA is guaranteed to miss the 2013 season, the eviction has proved unnecessary. People went to see the Fat Cats. They were family oriented, with low ticket prices and the highest attendance numbers in the league. Forcing the team out prior to a AA deal being finalized now seems like the wrong move. We’re left with a wonderful site and no team. The earliest we will see a AA team – or any pro

baseball at all – will be the 2014 season. It means a whole summer will go by with an empty park. Surely the city would have enough advance notice of the pending arrival of a AA team to get the place fixed up. The negotiations to get a new team to Ottawa have been a mystery. It’s understandable that there will be a period of secrecy during active negotiations to bring a new team here, but there must be some clue if an upcoming season is going to happen or not. With no pro team this summer – and no renovations planned in the short term – the gates of Ottawa Stadium should be thrown open for the community to enjoy. Former Fat Cats general manager Duncan MacDonald has proposed the park could host family events, men’s leagues and Little League baseball this summer. He’s willing to co-ordinate the process, providing turn-key service to the city. It’s a proposal worth considering but the city has said no. The stadium is paid for with residents’ tax dollars; who better to round the bases than the city’s own ball players? There’s only one answer to MacDonald’s proposal: play ball!

f it’s your birthday and you make the proper phone calls, you and some friends can ride in the pace car at Rideau Carleton Raceway. It’s pretty good to be one of those friends. The car, a big Cadillac limousine with a wide metal gate attached to the rear, drives along ahead of the horses. A man in back controls the gate and, in the initial stages, also controls the accelerator. When he accelerates and swings back the gate, the driver in front takes over, the race begins and you in the birthday group, facing sideways, get to watch the race up close, hearing the sounds and feeling the speed – even if you see a bit more than you might want to of the drivers’ encouragement of the horses. You get let off beside the winner’s circle where the happy owner waits. Then you walk back into the building and up to the restaurant area where people enjoy the buffet and place bets at their table. If you play your cards right, to mix a metaphor, you can have a nice meal and only lose a few dollars on the horses. You can tell, as you wander over for a second dessert, that most of the people are enjoying themselves. They holler encourage-

To enter the restaurant from the parking lot you first have to walk through the slots area. It is brightly lit with lights flashing on the machines which produce a bonging noise that, put together, sounds like music. As an aside, the intriguing thing is that the machines are all in tune. Somebody must have to make sure the slot machines are not flat or sharp – another modern-day occupation. But we digress. Aside from the bonging and flashing, the most noteworthy characteristic of the casino is that no one is smiling or laughing in it. I have walked through Published weekly by:

this room many times on the way into the track and I have never seen anyone laughing or smiling. I see people sitting or standing solemnly in front of their chosen machines, methodically feeding money into them and waiting gloomily for money to come out. From there, walking into the restaurant and the sight of the race track is like walking into the light. The paradoxical thing about this is it’s still gambling, whether you’re betting on a horse or a machine. But it feels different. To bet on a horse, you may scan the racing form and other available information for clues – what did the horse do in the last race, did it start strongly and fade or did it move up in the late stages of the race; who are its owners, its driver; what are the odds, who are the handicappers picking? Or you might just decide you like the horse’s name. Two dollars on Stanley Cup to win. Somehow going through the process makes you feel like you have a stake in the outcome, and if you win, it is a testament to your skill. If you lose, well it’s only $2. This helps keep you smiling, while you return once again to the dessert table. On you way out, after emerging from the

According to the industry, tens of thousands of jobs are at stake. Now, it’s unfortunate that the racing industry needs the slots to support itself, but if the choice is between keeping the track going and constructing another gleaming palace of gloom, it’s not difficult to know which one to cheer.

Food cupboard thanks volunteers

THIS WEEK’S POLL QUESTION:

What do you think the city should do with the empty Ottawa Stadium?

A) Use it to host Little League baseball and men’s league and family events. B) Use the hiatus of no professional baseball to renvoate the stadium and fix up the surrounding area. C) Explore the possibliity of using space, such as the parking lot, for development. D)Not a thing. Just wait for the return of AA baseball, hopefully next season. PREVIOUS POLL SUMMARY:

Do you think a tunnel beneath Richmond Road is the best route for the western branch of the LRT?

A) Yes. It is the optimum route and the underground track will cause the least disruption to the community.

a deal with the NCC so the tracks can go down the river parkway. I could care less where it runs.

To the editor, The Kanata Food Cupboard has moved to a new warehouse. The families who seek our assistance will continue to visit our main site at St Paul’s Anglican Church at 20 Young Rd. However, due to the pending development of the current warehouse site at 2 The Parkway, we are relocating to 340 Legget Drive. The old Canada Post site provided us with unequalled capacity to sort and store the food donations we receive, and to handle the major efforts associated with preparing the Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas hampers. We would like to thank Ken Hoppner and Brian Morley of Morley Hoppner Group for their significant generosity during the 18 months we leased their space. We also would like to thank Waste Management, Investors’ Group, Golder Associates and The Senators Foundation for joining the “builders’ Club” and contributing funds to offset our lease costs. We also want to give a shout-out to Rob Byers for all the maintenance work he did on our behalf and to Jarrett Gibbons for clearing the snow at no charge. As I mentioned, we have now moved to a Kanata Research Park facility at 340 Legget Dr. This has been made possible due to the

very generous and accommodating folks at the Kanata Research Park, especially Linda Sprung. We will be situated near the Ottawa Furniture Bank, which also does important work assisting those in our community. To all our volunteers who put their backs into helping us with our big move, thanks for lifting all that inventory. Without your ongoing help, we could not carry out our work.

If anyone is interested in visiting our new warehouse, or would like to volunteer, please e-mail our volunteer co-ordinator at volunteer@kanatafoodcupboard.ca or visit our web site. Marc Dumais Kanata Food Cupboard chairman See LETTERS, page 10

Goodbye Sippy Cup It was a sad day yesterday for me and other parents in the community to hear the news. After close to three years of business, Sippy Cup Cafe is closing its doors. I have been going to the cafe in Morgan’s Grant since

my two-and-a-half year old son was about six months old, when all he could do was sit in the high chair and watch me enjoy a latte while I visited with my friends. After the birth of my daughter, I loved going to Sippy Cup even more. The café became a bit of a respite for me when my husband was out of town for work, when the days sometimes felt endless.

It was a place I could go and watch my little guy play as I nursed my baby girl, not having to worry about my toddler sticking his fingers in electrical sockets or playing with the dishwasher, as I do at home. Sippy Cup was a convenient and easy excuse to get out of the house for a change of scene, and a place where my son could play with other

kids and enjoy different toys. Over the past three years, Sippy Cup Cafe had become that go-to place for myself and many other parents and even grandparents in the community. It was a place where tired, busy and sometimes lonely moms could get a break and some much needed sanity. It was the only cafe in the community where parents could watch their kids play from the sidelines, knowing they were happy, safe and not bothering anybody. What I loved most about that place was that I could go even if I hadn’t arranged to meet somebody there. Often I would run into somebody I knew, or I would just start chatting with other parents who had brought their kids. It was a friendly, local place to relax and get a snack. As sad as I am for the impact on me, I can’t even begin to imagine how devastated owner Preston Martelly and his family must be. Even with Preston’s passion for the café, and the amazing connections he made with other local business owners, it wasn’t enough to keep the business sustainable. Preston put his heart and soul into the café.

He hosted date nights, concerts, birthday parties, readings from local authors, workshops for business owners and much more. He regularly updated his menu, Facebok page, and he always served great coffee. He also supported the local community in any way he could. He helped local companies advertise and promote, and he was always willing to help out by providing advice, encouragement and support for new business ventures. Specifically, he was a source of inspiration to me to get Kids in Kanata started. He provided the right mix of enthusiasm and knowledge. Local store owners have also been affected by the sad news. Patti Taggart, owner of Tag Along Toys in the Kanata Signature Centre, and Sarah Kelly, owner of Elm Hill Kids next store, are both crushed that Sippy Cup had to close. Being Kanata business owners, the news hit them really hard. Of course they also feel sad for Preston who has a young family. Patti Taggart told me yesterday how upsetting it is for her to see local businesses fold. Chiquita baby, Three Bags Full, and Casual El-

egance in Stittsville are a few examples of local stores that have recently suffered due to a lack of support from the community. Local blogger Chris Read, aka Canadian Dad, who is very supportive of local businesses is also saddened to see the café close. “Preston was so involved in our community and its events. They will be missed for sure”. Based on the reaction from the community, including all the kind words people have written on Preston’s Facebook page, it would appear that we have lost so much more than just a coffee shop. We have lost a community builder and a means for parents to connect. I wish Preston Martelly nothing but the best in his future endeavours, and I know that the community shares this sentiment.

EMC news - McDonald’s Restaurants of Canada Limited has submitted an application to the city to build a restaurant in north Kanata. The fast-food chain has applied for a zoning change and site plan approval at 886 March Rd. near Maxwell Bridge Road, across from the Sobeys. The proposal includes a free-standing, single-storey restaurant with a drive thru window and 58 parking spaces. “The applications are still under review,” said city planner Lily Xu, at the Kanata North community town hall meeting on April 29. She will also present the plans at the upcoming Briarbrook, Brookside,

Morgan’s Grant Community Association meeting on May 15. One resident whose house will border the proposed restaurant on the Brookside side was worried about the lack of noise and visual barriers. “Now I’ve got parking spaces facing my house,” he said. “I don’t see right now any buffering.” Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson said the proposal is not finalized and comments will be taken into consideration. “We don’t want to have any light spills either,” she said. The proposal can be viewed at Ottawa.ca/ devapps. Comments can be submitted to Xu at lily.xu@ottawa.ca or by calling 613580-2424 ext. 27505.

Broughton Lands Park proposal to feature natural elements Jessica Cunha

jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - A new park in the Broughton subdivision of north Kanata will incorporate the natural environment into its play areas. The neighbourhood park proposal was presented during the Kanata North community town hall meeting on April 29 and will incorporate natural features of the land such as large rocks. “(We will) work with the natural features of the park,” said Diane Emmerson, a landscape architect, adding planners will “integrate the play areas into the existing rock features” making it an “interesting adventure experience for the kids.” Fences have already been installed around unstable areas to keep residents safe, said Emmerson.

A steep slope will be turned into a winding path to make navigating the land as easy as possible. A second entrance will have more level access to the park from the opposite side. “We will try to make it as accessible as possible,” Emmerson said. The budget for the 0.8 hectare Broughton Lands Park is $400,000. Construction will likely begin in late summer or early fall of 2013, with completion scheduled for some time next year, said Emmerson. “Having (a park) in the neighbourhood will be really helpful,” said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson. Right now, children in the area are crossing Kanata Avenue to get to the nearest park area. “It’s quite a good size park,” Wilkinson said.

EMC news - Canada’s latest new bank notes became out of this world when Commander of the International Space Station Chris Hadfield helped unveil the new bills. The new polymer $5 and $10 bills were revealed at the Bank of Canada on April 30. Images on the bills include the Canadarm2 and Dextre-robotics innovations used to build and maintain the Space Station on the $5 bill and an image of the Canadian train traveling around the Rocky Mountains on the $10 bill. Orbiting more than 350 kilometres above the Earth Hadfield showed off the new $5 bill. “I try to inspire young Canadians to aim high. This new $5 bill should do the same,” Hadfield said. “By giving prominence to Canadian achievements in space, this bank note reminds us that not even the sky is the limit.” The front of the $5 features a portrait of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Prime Minister of Canada from 1896 to 1911. Sir John A. Macdonald, who was Prime Minister of Canada from 18671873, and an image of Macdonald from the time of the railway completion, is on the front of the note. This is the final two notes in the new polymer series, with the $20, $50 and $100 unveiled previously. Minister of Finance Jim Flaherty, Bank of Canada Governor Mark Carney and Paul G. Smith, Chairman of the Board at VIA Rail Canada joined Hadfield for the official unveiling. “Canadians can be very proud of their new polymer bank notes,” Flaherty said. “One can see ... the unifying theme that underlies them all - the profound courage, determination, and ingenuity of our nation and its people.”

Kanata Symphony to perform year-end concert The Kanata Symphony is hard at work preparing an impressive program for its final concert of the year, on May 11 at Glen Cairn United Church (140 Abbeyhill Dr.) beginning at 8 p.m. The concert will feature soloist and acclaimed young cellist Bryan Cheng, who will perform the “Cello Concerto No. 1 in C Major” by Joseph Haydn. Also on the program are the “Ruy Blas” overture by Mendelssohn and Dvorak’s very famous Eighth Symphony. Ottawa-born 15-year-old cellist Cheng has been playing cello since before the age of four. He made his orchestral debut at age 10 with I Musici de Montreal Chamber Orchestra, and since then he has been the guest soloist with I Musici for numerous concerts. He has also soloed with the National Arts Centre Orchestra, Ottawa Chamber Orchestra, and the Nouvelle Génération Chamber Orchestra and Kanata Symphony Orchestra. Bryan regularly performs with his pianist sister, Silvie. The Cheng2 Duo has performed at many concert halls in North America, including Carnegie Hall, and has reached audiences in Europe and Asia. In summer 2013, Bryan will be part of the NAC Young Artists Program (YAP). As an avid chamber musician, Bryan has performed in various ensemble forms. He is a first-prize winner at the Canadian Music Competition, Ontario Provincial Music Festival, Sorel Classical Music Festival in Quebec, and the Kiwanis Music Festival National Capital Region. He is currently a grade 10 student at Lisgar Collegiate Institute, where he enjoys all subjects. The “Cello Concerto No.1 in C Major” was composed by Haydn

around 1761-1765, and has become a staple of the cello repertoire. For many years, this concerto was thought to be lost; only its first two measures were known from the handwritten catalog Haydn had kept of his own works. Tickets for the concert are $10 per adult, $8 per student or senior, and $25 for a family and are available through Domenic’s music, CD warehouse, orchestra members, or at the door. Refreshments will follow after the concert. Mark your calendar for May 11th and bring your family to enjoy a breathtaking performance by extraordinary soloist Bryan Cheng.

Hydro rates not a factor in economic growth: Chiarelli steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - Speaking at a media event with fellow Liberal MPPs following the release of the 2013 provincial budget, energy minister Bob Chiarelli called rising hydro rates a “bubble” that will eventually pass. The minority Ontario Liberal government is currently promoting a budget filled with spending designed to garner the approval of the New Democratic Party, whose support is needed to pass the budget and avoid an election. However, the budget plans were announced against the backdrop of the ongoing gas plant scandal and related legislative committee hearings. The expenditure of an estimated $600 million to cancel the construction of two Toronto-area gas plants is an issue that dogged former Premier Dalton McGuinty and former energy minister Chris Bentley in the year leading up to the prorogation of the legislature last fall and resulted in the resignation of both men. Despite new faces in both positions, the issue is still a thorn for the

Liberals, especially since the cost to cancel the two plants will be covered by ratepayers already facing rising electricity costs. During the May 3 media conference, Chiarelli responded to a question regarding the uncertain costs of the gas plant cancellations. “Part of the costs of relocation, what they call the sunk costs, the actual money that was spent on the projects in the ground ... those costs have already been put on the fiscal plan and included in the budgets last year and the year before,” said Chiarelli, before saying the Ontario Power Authority didn’t factor in longterm costs to the final figure. “The long-term costs are ongoing into long-term rate impact,” he said, adding the costs pertaining to the cancellation and relocation of the plants will be incorporated into general expenditures that include current and future hydro generation projects. In other words, Ontario ratepayers will pay for the cancellations just like any other electricity grid improvement. “The impact will be there, but it will be included with

billions of dollars of other expenditures that are made over a 20-year-period in the electricity system,” said Chiarelli, adding, “There are steps that are being taken in the medium and long-term to mitigate the increases in rates.” The province’s solar and wind providers, as well as the gas plants needed to offset the finicky generation output of those renewables, were signed to 20-year contracts by the Ontario Power Authority. According to the Ontario Energy Board, off-peak electricity rates have risen from 2.7 cents per kwh in May of 2008 to 6.7 cents per kwh in May of this year. In the same time, onpeak rates rose from 9.3 cents per kwh to 12.4 cents. Speaking with Metroland Media, Chiarelli was asked whether he thought the province’s electricity rates -- elevated due to the cost of implementing the many aspects of the Green Energy Act -- were a factor in the state of Ontario’s struggling economy, especially the deflation of the province’s manufacturing sector. Chiarelli said that while rates were being pushed upwards by capital expenditure

Fire Hydrants: Testing for your Safety This summer, as in past years, the City of Ottawa will be testing municipal fire hydrants on various streets throughout your community. Fire hydrant testing may result in temporary inconveniences, such as poor water pressure and brown or rust-coloured water. It is important to note that temporarily discoloured City water is not harmful to your health. This ongoing maintenance procedure ensures that our hydrants are ready, should Fire Services require their use.

the economy -- the expansion of the Ring of Fire up north, for example. The mining sector is expanding dramatically, and that is going to require more investments as well - you incorporate those factors into the long-term energy plans.” The Ring of Fire, a large, O-shaped deposit of chromite (the key ingredient in stainless steel) in Ontario’s far north is appealing to prospective mining companies, though the remote area lacks basic infrastructure and would pose an expensive start-up challenge to companies wanting to extract the chromite. On that topic, Chiarelli said the province is re-directing

some of the surplus power it sells at a loss to neighbouring jurisdictions to the industries that need it. “We actually have created a new energy program for new industrial facilities and a second one for expanded industrial facilities, which leverages our surplus power,” he said. “The Independent Electric System Operator -- IESO -- has created projections on what our surpluses will be, and we’re using that surplus energy – instead of selling that power cheap – we’re selling it in Ontario to industrial expansion companies to mitigate their rate increases.” That program is in existence now, Chiarelli said.

y sister Audrey said she was tired of the same old routine day in and day out. Since I was so very young when she made this comment, I had no idea what routine was. So I asked Audrey to print the word in my scribbler and say what the word meant. Even at that early age I was very interested in words and kept a record in a fat scribbler whenever I heard one I hadn’t heard before. My scribbler was getting quite thick and even though I went over it often, I would forget what a word meant and Audrey would have to explain it to me all over again, which didn’t please her in the least. Well, Audrey could say what she liked about routine and how bored she was with it, but I liked how our lives on the farm were so orderly, and as far as I was concerned I wanted nothing to change. Every Monday morning, our beds didn’t have to be made up because that was the day the sheets were stripped and Mother did the washing. It didn’t matter if the snow

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories was coming down in buckets, or it was raining so hard you could barely see the barns, Monday was wash day. I knew that on Monday night there would be fresh sheets on our beds, taken right off the clothes line and smelling of spring and the outdoors. That night, I didn’t mind in the least going to bed. Every Tuesday when we came from school, we could smell in the kitchen the scent of newly ironed clothes. Shirts would be draped over chairs, tea towels stacked neatly in a pile on the kitchen table ready to be put in the drawer in the backto-the-wall cupboard. Even our pinny aprons would be ironed and hanging on the hook by the stove. Without fail, Tuesday was the day the ironing was done. At mealtimes, things never

varied. Breakfast was the very same every morning: big bowls of porridge, fried potatoes, back bacon and thick slices of homemade bread slathered with butter and jam. Dinner was always at noon – there was no such thing as lunch in the middle of the day. The routine of mid-day dinner never varied. Father expected, and got, meat, potatoes, one or two different vegetables and an ample piece of homemade pie. After all, his work had begun at dawn, and even though his breakfast was ample, by noon it had worn off and he was more than ready for what he called “a decent meal.� The routine continued at supper: meat and potatoes, but dessert would be preserves. We never went to bed

without something to tide us over to morning. I couldn’t imagine this routine being broken. This was all part of our life on the farm. Friday night was always the time to get ready for peddling Mother’s wares in Renfrew the next day. There was a regular routine that never varied as long as we lived in Northcote and was one of my favourite evenings

in the entire week. Audrey and I would gather the eggs from the hen house. Audrey would wash them in warm soapy water and I would dry them with a clean flour bag tea towel. Mother would weigh them into their sizes on the egg scale – small, medium and large – and we would carefully pack them into 11-quart baskets. Mother’s sticky buns would

be wrapped in wax paper, freshly plucked chickens singed and laid out on the bake table on a clean white sheet, ready to be packed in the Model T in the morning. Then every Saturday without fail, Mother headed into Renfrew to go door-to-door with what we had prepared the night before. See THE SAME, page 33

Mother’s Day is about looking good and feeling great from the inside out!

The importance of strength training: § Develop strong bones – strength training increases bone density and reduces the risk of osteoporosis. § Control your weight – as you gain muscle, your body will burn calories more efficiently – which can result in weight loss. § Reduce your risk of injury – building muscle helps protect your joints from injury. It can also contribute to better balance, which can assist in maintaining your independence as you age. § Boost stamina – as you get stronger, you won’t fatigue as easily. § Manage chronic conditions – strength training can reduce symptoms and signs of many chronic conditions such as arthritis, back pain, depression, diabetes and osteoporosis. § Sharpen your focus – some research suggests that regular strength training helps improve attention for older adults.

Makeover

Begin her morning with a cup of warm water and the juice of half of a lemon to wake up the digestion. Save the other half of the lemon to make an awakening hot towel by mixing hot water with the juice of the other half of the lemon. Lemon is a natural astringent and will leave her skin feeling fresh, clean and glowing. Then treat Mom to a refreshing bowl of quinoa with berries and lemon zest. The high fibre helps to balance blood sugar and helps collagen production to keep her skin glowing and healthy. As a gift you can make her a Grapeseed Avocado Oil Night Moisturizer with this simple recipe, and then enjoy your Mother’s Day with family and friends!

Grapeseed oil (great for normal, oily, or acne-prone skin) Avocado oil (incredibly regenerating, this oil is known for

its firming & anti-aging abilities – as a bonus it penetrates deep into the skin for better absorption of nutrients like vitamin A, D, E giving you wonderful anti-inflammatory properties.)

Fill your small bottle just under ⅔ of the way with grapeseed oil. Add the avocado oil until the bottle is almost full. Apply topically to the face at night to help moisturize and reduce fine lines.

Grateful for CHEO’s Support Jonathan was diagnosed with epilepsy, a complex neurological condition. Although some people with epilepsy have mild symptoms, others like Jonathan have full-fledged convulsions that leave him unconscious. After the initial excitement that his seizures were under control thanks to medications commonly used to treat epilepsy, they returned with a vengeance. In fact during one such episode his parents had to call 911 to ensure their son would make it to CHEO as quickly as possible because he was struggling to breathe.

By Isabelle Mailloux Pulkinghorn

Jonathan Puerto was born healthy but a few weeks later began having seizures after he woke up from his naps. Worried, his parents Elizabeth Pineda and Jose Eduardo Puerto took him to their pediatrician who referred them to CHEO. Under the trusted care of Dr. Sharon Whiting, a pediatric neurologist, Jonathan underwent testing to identify the cause of the severe seizures he experienced on a daily basis, some of which left him unconscious and fighting to breathe. Tests revealed a lesion on the front left side of his brain, the result of a stroke he had likely suffered at birth. Then at six months of age, following additional testing to eliminate other conditions,

To make things worse, when Jonathan was six years old, he had a severe allergic reaction to the standard seizure drug that paramedics carry and went into anaphylactic shock.CHEO specialists were able to help him and to search for another medication to control his seizures.Dr. Whiting herself called paramedic services and officials at Ottawa Public Health to lobby for Jonathan. They were very receptive and now have a specific care plan specifically tailored to needs, and Jonathan now carries his new medication with him at all times to ensure paramedics can access it when he needs to be transported to CHEO. “That is the CHEO difference. Our son’s doctor took the time to not only identify the best medicine for him, but she made calls herself to various agencies to ensure they’d use this new medication to keep our son safe,” explains Elizabeth, who shudders as she recalls a particularly severe seizure that lasted 24 hours. “Without that care plan, Jonathan’s life would be at risk.”

Further tests revealed that Jonathan also suffers from cerebral palsy, and he’s since been diagnosed as having autism.Despite those additional challenges, Jonathan is thriving. He speaks three languages, and is in a special needs grade four class where he loves working on the computer, playing with trucks and being with his friends. One role he particularly enjoys is that of older brother to his 18 month old sibling David. Ultimately, the goal is for Jonathan to live his best life, seizure-free and safe. For now, there has been some progress: though he still has occasional seizures they only last 10 minutes or less, as opposed to hours at a time—and their frequency decreased from daily episodes to once every two weeks.If Jonathan’s seizures were to come back at a higher frequency, the next step would be brain surgery but his parents are hopeful that he can avoid that… at least for a while. “Jonathan is a good boy and he’s so handsome,” coos Elizabeth. “My husband and I are very proud of him because despite all his health issues he remains a positive little boy who is very loving and caring. Every morning he wakes up with a smile on his face. We are lucky to have him and his brother David.” Jonathan will be ten years old in June.With the help of his loving family, their friends and the expert CHEO staff, this young boy can trust that he is in good hands and that he will be well cared for with a treatment plan tailor-made to his needs.And this is something the Puerto family is truly grateful for.

Then in June 2009 Griffith’s life turned upside down. He was diagnosed with mantle cell lymphoma, an aggressive and incurable form of lymphoma.

His record of his cancer journey has now turned into a book – Living with Cancer: A Journey.

He immediately underwent treatment at The Ottawa Hospital, where, over the next three years, he went through a cycle of recovery, relapse and further treatment. He decided to chronicle his experiences, reactions and reflections on how he came to terms with his fate, and documented the numerous physical, emotional and relationship challenges he faced. His writings became a journey of self-discovery. During the writing process he realized that the disease

Teen artists honoured at awards gala West Carleton Review Font_PalatinoLinotype_Bold

ALL TYPE OUTLINED

EMC news - Anna Bullock had a good workout last Sunday night. The Grade 12 All Saints Catholic High School student was put through the paces walking back and forth to the awards table during the Young at Art ceremony held at the Mlacak Centre on May 5, where she was honoured five times for her mixedmedia work, Patience Cradle. The piece won her Brian’s Pick, a category judged by gallery member Brian Gallup; the Senior Award for mixed media artwork; Best of Mixed Media Award and the Young at Art Founder’s Award. “They mean a lot,” said Bullock. “I was very honoured to be awarded them.” Bullock was also named this year’s recipient of the Ben Babelowsky Award, handed to her by the famed local artist himself. “He’s a prominent artist in the community and it feels really nice to be recognized by him,” said Bullock. The young artist plans to study chemistry and fine arts at Queen’s University next year, and she hopes to eventually study art conservation in the university’s graduate program. Bullock was one of 380 young artists from 60 schools across the city who entered the 17 th annual Young at Art contest, with prizes going to junior and senior participants in three regions: east, west and central, with separate award nights and gallery exhibits. This is the seventh year the contest has been open to youth between the ages of 13 to 19 across Ottawa; previously, the event was hosted by the Kanata Civic Art Gallery for local participants. “The success of this idea led to the present citywide event that now in-

A few of the artists picked up several awards. Ryan Lee, a Grade 12 Earl of March Secondary School student, snagged two: The Ottawa Art Gallery Award of Accomplishment and the Ottawa Guild of Potters awards for his clay piece, Life Cycle. Lee has been working in the clay medium since he was six years old, when he started studying the discipline at the Nepean Visual Arts Centre. “Clay has that meaning of your hand in it,” said Lee. “It’s like your

piece is you.” Lee said he hopes to study medical imaging at McMaster University next year, but that art will always have a place in his life. “It always will be a hobby of mine,” he said. Laura Manyoki also won two awards – the Rosemary Randell Award of Merit and the David W. Jones Award – for her graphite drawing Old Balinese Lady. Jones, one of Canada’s foremost landscape painters, presented the award named after him in person to Laura, calling her up onto the stage to praise her work. Jones said some people may have been surprised to see a landscape artist choose a portrait as the winner of the David W. Jones Award. “I was judging solely based on

merit,” said Jones. “It was a wonderful drawing. It had a strong element of being insightful, probing, investigative and skillfully drawn.” The Grade 11 All Saints student said that she hasn’t decided what she wants in life yet, but that could change, especially after receiving two Young at Art awards. “It’s nice to know that other people like my art,” she said. “Right now art is just a hobby, but it opens my eyes to my future, what I possibly could be doing.” Other award winners were: • Junior Award for Drawing: Jeremy Kovaks, All Saints, for his drawing Remnants of Our Past • Senior Award for Drawing: Yingfei Sun, Bell High School, for her colour pencil work Recncontre • Best of Drawing Award: Yingfei Sun

• Junior Award for Painting: Hanna Zhang, Canterbury High School, for her watercolour painting Speldosa • Senior Award for Paining: Megan Wang, Earl of March Secondary School, for her painting The Voyage • Best of Painting Award: Hannah Zhang • Junior Award for Mixed Media: Colleen Russett, Canterbury High School, for her watercolour and colour pencil work Exploring the Mind • Mixed Media honourable mention: Tina Sun, Franco west French high school, for her artwork Tradition Meets Modern Inner Journey in Perspective • Junior Award for Other Media: Darien Drevniok, Venta Preparatory School, for his print Dog Sled Trip 2013 See ARTS, page 33 R0012079925

Most of the winners were also given space at local galleries, like the Kanata Civic Art Gallery, to showcase their work. “It’s an opportunity for them to be taken seriously,� said Young at Art organizer Judi Miller. “The kids come in and they’re really supportive of each other, and they do like to see their peers recognized.’ This year, Young at Art introduced the theme of Samuel de Champlain’s first voyage up the Ottawa River, in honour of the 400th anniversary of the historic trip. The Young at Art winning artwork will be on display until May 10 at the Kanata Civic Art Gallery, located in the Mlacak Centre, 2500 Campeau Dr.

The same old routine Continued from page 25

Perhaps this was why Audrey complained so much about the routine: she was usually left at home to clean the house, while I was allowed to go with Mother. But that didn’t mean I was spared from Saturday chores. When we got back to the farm, it was my job to churn the butter in the middle of the kitchen. Wrapped in a long white pinny and sitting on a straight-back chair, I plunged the round wood disc into the fresh cream, waiting for the change in the sound coming from deep in the churn, when I would know that my labour had paid off, and soon there would be butter. Saturday was butter day and that never varied. Saturday was also bake day. Bread

would be ready for the oven by the time we got back from Renfrew, pie crusts would be filled and as always a slab cake would be at the ready just in case neighbours dropped in for a game of euchre that night. Every night, without fail, we had our prayers. They were said on our knees around Mother who sat in the rocking chair in the corner of the big upstairs hall, which my sister Audrey and I called our bedroom. Our prayers never varied either. Sometimes we prayed so long, I would doze off with my head on Mother’s knee. Another day would be done, another day, just like the one before it, marked with its special chores, and Audrey would lament again about the boredom of it all.

In natural environments, such as the South March Highlands, wildlife is present and there are province-wide laws about dogs chasing wildlife. In every area, dog owners are required by law to pick up the feces from their dog and return it to their home for disposal (dump down the toilet or put it in your garbage). I have heard of many incidents where bags containing feces have been thrown at the side of a road, along the hydro corridor, or in the woods. None of that is legal. Because of the number of complaints I have asked City Bylaw officers to cover areas where this is happening and take action. Help keep our lands clean, respect your neighbours and look after your dog(s) responsibly. BIKE MONTH May is Bike Month. The City is holding bike safety sessions and workshops at Bike to Work workplaces and a Bike Buddies program that matches new cyclists with experienced riders to give them confidence. See the City website for various cycling training courses. Remember that children under 18 must wear a helmet and I strongly recommend that everyone else wears one as well. I do! The City has cycling maps for many cycling pathways. Pathways through parks in Kanata North are duel use – make sure you give way to pedestrians – use your bell (it is compulsory to have one) and go around where possible. Riding on sidewalks (any path alongside a road) is prohibited except for very young children. I have had numerous complaints about cyclists, sometimes riding abreast, using the sidewalk along Campeau where there is a cycling lane along the road. A number of senior citizens have been hit or fallen jumping out of the way. Bicycles are vehicles – use the road safely – and drivers given them room. Police have been asked to monitor this situation and tickets could be issued.

GIVE AWAY WEEKEND June 1-2 is Give Away Weekend. This event started in the former City of Kanata and has now spread City-wide. Garage sales are primarily held in May and then you can put out any other item you no longer want at the curb on Give Away Weekend, together with a sign (just hand write) saying Free and others will find that what you no longer want is perfect for them. Help reduce waste in this way. HOUSING OPENS DOORS I learned much about how to ensure everyone has safe and affordable housing at the Congress on Housing & Homelessness held last week in Ottawa. You can find out more by attending an event that shows that providing affordable housing is an investment (not a cost). Housing Opens Doors tells the story of how affordable housing helps families to succeed, improves health and education, creates jobs and helps build a stronger economy. Visit the “Travelling Doors� event in the Byward Market (George at Sussex) on May 25. Starting at noon, you can ‘ring the doorbell’ on 16 message doors. Find out more at www.housingopensdoors.ca CONGRATULATIONS: to Lucinda Novell, the only rhythmic gymnast from Ottawa competing at the senior national level of the 2013 Canadian Gymnastics Championships taking place at Carleton University to Xixi Jin, from All Saints who was a winner of Photovoice, where students documented issues through photography. to all of the winners of Young at Art in Kanata for their wonderful submissions.

EMC sports - Heather GiffordSeaman and Michael Chambers share much in common. They’re both professionals: Seaman-Gifford, a project officer with Ottawa Public Health, spends her days helping seniors to keep active, and Chambers, a lawyer, has decades of litigation experience under his belt. The pair spent a good chunk of their lives living in Kanata – Chambers was a Glen Cairn original who lived in the west-end community during its early years in the 1970s, while Gifford Seaman calls Morgan’s Grant home. They also share a passion for ex-

nity since it first opened its doors in 1968. Gifford-Seaman and Chambers will join the previous 247 inductees during a ceremony held at Jean Pigott Hall in city hall. “Our new inductees join an esteemed group of athletes, coaches and builders who make up Ottawa’s rich sports history,” said Mayor Jim Watson. GIFFORD-SEAMAN

Gifford-Seaman said she was humbled when informed of the honour. “I was just blown away,” she said. “It took me by surprise.” The 57-year-old said she plans to attend the event accompanied by her husband, children, family members as well as some of the women she used to compete with on the Ottawa women’s water polo team. “This is pre-Titans,” she said. “Way before the Titans program.” Gifford-Seaman first took up the sport in 1972, as a Grade 10 student at Canterbury High School in Ottawa, when she was an active athlete. Eventually, she joined a city league, then Ontario’s team from 1974 to 1982 and the national team in 1977, and 1980-82.

Gifford-Seaman, a former goalie for Team Canada’s 1981 women’s world water polo championship team, still keeps her toes in the water, serving as head coach of the University of Ottawa’s women’s water polo team, while Chambers recently finished a long-stint as president of Canada’s Olympic Committee. On May 9, they will share one more thing in common, when they are inducted into the Ottawa Sports Hall of Fame in honour of their long and distinguished contributions to Canadian sport. The sports hall of fame is inducting five members this year, with James McKenny, Charmaine Hooper and Gifford-Seaman in the athlete category; Thomas Clarence Foley in the media category (posthumously) and Chambers in builders category. “We are thrilled to announce and welcome this year’s new members to the hall,” said Mike Flanagan, chairman of the sports hall of fame. “This year’s class represents a diverse group from several eras that have made significant contributions to elevating sports excellence within our community.” The Ottawa Sports Hall of Fame has celebrated the contributions of athletes, builders, teams and the media to the city’s sporting commu-

Water polo world champ inducted Continued from page 34

As goalie for the national women’s water polo team, she led Canada to its first-ever gold medal at the world championships in Brisbane Australia in 1981, and was selected as outstanding goalie of the games. One of her pinnacle moments playing the sport came in the gold medal game against Netherlands,

where Canada upset the Dutch 1110 in a hard fought game. “We were by far not favoured,” said Gifford-Seaman. “It was a bit of an upset.” She credits her development as a player to the instruction of then Ottawa Women’s Water Polo club coach David McClintock and 1981 national team coach Dominique Dion.

Gifford-Seaman is a member of the Ontario Aquatic Hall of Fame and the Aquatic Hall of Fame of Canada. She is a former coach of the City of Ottawa Junior women and a former vice president in charge of women’s development for the Ontario Water Polo Association. She also served as vice president on Water Polo Canada’s board of directors and was in charge of national women’s team development and was

commissioner of the Canadian Water Polo League. Gifford Seaman later coached the Ottawa Titan’s I Love Water Polo program, where she introduced her three children Eben, Logan and Hannah to the sport. In 2009, she jumped back into the pool, playing goal for the Ottawa Golden Girls, a team that is preparing for the World Masters Water Polo Championships in Montreal in 2014. CHAMBERS

when he found out he was to be named to the Ottawa Sports Hall of Fame. “I realized what great sportsmen and women are being inducted,” said Chambers. “To think I’m going to be coming into the Sports Hall of Fame at the same time as these people is very humbling.” Over the past 40 years, Chambers has journeyed through the various tiers of amateur sport in Canada, ranging from the board of directors of the Rideau Canoe Club to Canada’s Olympic Committee to serving as the president of the national organization for nine years, through the 2010 Vancouver Winter Games. “I started out helping out with the Rideau Canoe Club,” said the 63year-old west Ottawa man. “I’m the son of parents who met each other in the 1930s at the Rideau Canoe Club.” As a teenager, Chambers competed in the sport during the late 1960s. He joined the club’s board of directors in 1981, and from 1986 to 1988 was president of Canoe Kayak Canada, an organization that in 1984 asked him to become the organization’s representative on the national Olympic committee. “That started my Olympic journey,” said Chambers. In 1986, Canoe Kayak Canada hosted the world canoeing championship in Montreal, the first time it had ever been held in North America. See I HAD, page 37

‘I had a busy and such a rewarding decade’: hall inductee Continued from page 36

Chambers moved up the ranks in Canada’s Olympic Committee, and in 2001 was elected the organization’s president, a position he held until the spring of 2010. Chambers was involved in Canada’s bid for the 2010 Games from start to finish. “I was there from the plant-

ing of the seed to the harvesting of the crowd,” he said. In 2003, he travelled to Prague, the Czech Republic, and celebrated with the rest of his team when the Games were awarded to Vancouver. He went on to co-chair the Games’ organizing committee, together with Jack Poole, who died of pancreatic cancer shortly before the Olym-

pics opened. “I had a busy and such a fun and rewarding decade,” said Chambers. “I don’t know if anyone could have had a better ride for the first 10 years of the 21st century.” Canada had never won a gold medal during previous Olympic Games held in Montreal and Calgary – Canadian athletes brought home

14 gold medals from Vancouver. “For someone whose avocation is sport, it was a little experience of heaven on earth, being the host of the world at a Games that was a tremendous success for Canada and is considered now to be the Games that subsequent Games will be measured by.” Chambers is a founding director of the Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival and served as chairman of the annual event from 1999 to 2001. He also sat on myriad other boards including the Brittania

Yacht Club and the Alzheimer Society of Ottawa during the early 1990s and is presently serving on the board of the organizing committee of the 2015 Pan American Games and is a member of the executive council of the worldwide association of Olympic committees – the first Canadian ever appointed. Chambers was also a member of the International Olympic Committee’s working group that fought against illegal and irregular betting in the sport. Chambers said his proud-

est moment in his career was when he was able to initiate and take the lead in the appeal to the court of arbitration for sport following the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympic Games in which two doping Russian athletes were placed ahead of Becky Scott in her cross country sprint races. “That led to Becky ultimately being awarded the gold medal that she so justly deserved in that race,” he said. “I’ve never climbed Mount Everest, but that was my top of Everest type feeling.” R0012086540_0509

11 Critical Home Inspection Traps to be Aware of Weeks Before Listing Your Home for Sale Ottawa & Area - According to industry experts, there are over 33 physical problems that will come under scrutiny during a home inspection when your home is for sale. A new report has been prepared which identifies the eleven most common of these problems, and what you should know about them before you list your home for sale. Whether you own an old home or a brand new one, there are a number of things that can fall short of requirements during a home inspection. If not identified and dealt with, any of these 11 items could cost you dearly in terms of repair. That's why it's critical that you read this report before you list your home. If you wait until the building inspector flags these issues for you, you will almost certainly experience costly delays in the close of your home sale or, worse, turn prospective buyers away

altogether. In most cases, you can make a reasonable pre-inspection yourself if you know what you're looking for, and knowing what you're looking for can help you prevent little problems from growing into costly and unmanageable ones. To help homesellers deal with this issue before their homes are listed, a free report entitled "11 Things You Need to Know to Pass Your Home Inspection" has been compiled which explains the issues involved.

Retired Royal Canadian Navy captain and Blackburn Hamlet resident Mark Eldridge has created a group called Soldiers Helping Soldiers after a chance meeting with homeless veterans last fall.

Helping homeless veterans Gale Real Estate, Team Realty

EMC news - When retired Navy captain Mark Eldridge met a number of homeless people downtown during a fundraiser last fall, he was surprised to learn he was looking into the eyes of his fellow brothers-in-arms. Last October, the Blackburn Hamlet resident and a group of other servicemen and women were in downtown Ottawa running a fundraiser for Soldier On, a group that supports ill and injured Canadian Forces members to be active in sport and recreational activities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That bothered us tremendously, that in the course of a few hours, we were engaged by six folks who are living on the street,â&#x20AC;? Eldridge said. In a city with multiple layers of

government and lots of resources, â&#x20AC;&#x153;How the hell does this happen?â&#x20AC;? Eldridge asked. A group of about a dozen people who were involved with the fund-

WELCOME TO Servicemen and women THE 2009 2013

seeking out at-risk vets Continued from page 39

Since January, the group has grown to around 40 members who have visited the Ottawa Mission and Shepherds of Good Hope shelters to serve lunch on two occasions. Soldiers Helping Soldiers members identify themselves as Canadian Forces through markings on their aprons and ball caps. Eldridge is hoping this subtle action will open a door for veterans living on the margins. Offering a sense of belonging and an opportunity to reconnect with a community they identify with can be a way in. It’s the first step in guiding them along the path to accessing the right services that are going to make a difference for them, Eldridge said. “It’s just a way of bringing them back,” he said.

This story doesn’t wear a uniform ... It’s not about their military service. MARK ELDRIDGE RETIRED NAVY CAPTAIN AND FOUNDER OF SOLDIERS HELPING SOLDIERS

There is no way to know how many homeless people in Ottawa are former Canadian Forces members, said Dave Gordon, executive director of the Ontario command of the Royal Canadian Legion. “We often get the question, ‘How many homeless veterans are there in Canada?’” Gordon said. “I always say, how many snowflakes fell in the last snowstorm? I have no idea.” Eldridge said he was surprised that any veterans identified themselves during Soldier’s Helping Soliders’ first two shelter visits. He said there is no way to estimate the scope of the issue in Ottawa, but he guessed there may be in the neighbourhood of 100 homeless veterans in the city. The issues they face and the conditions that led to them ending up on the streets are the same as the issues faced by any person who becomes

homeless, Eldridge said. “This story doesn’t wear a uniform,” he said. “It’s not about their military service.” Addiction is an issue and alcohol abuse is easy to fall into when there are few distractions on a military base, Eldridge said. But addiction is a common thread for many people who become homeless, he said. “I doubt very much that the circumstances in the military are very different than anywhere else,” he said. A lack of transferable job skills can lead to a downward spiral for anyone, Eldridge said. When their career experience amounts to “combat,” it makes sense that some veterans can’t find work after they complete their service. By the time they reach that stage, they’ve completely forgotten the information they received – and thought they would never need – while they were in the military, Eldridge said. It’s something Eldridge can connect with. “When you see your brothers-inarms on the street … you have to do something about it,” he said. “The underlying issue is that agencies aren’t asking the question,” Eldridge said. After his talk, Eldridge was flooded with questions from people representing service providers who admitted they never thought to ask if someone served in the Canadian Forces. But all of them said it’s a practice they’d now adopt. At the networking event, Eldridge was shocked at how many organizations are available to assist veterans and others who are living on the streets. “I’ve got a dozen business cards from organizations I’ve never heard of before and another dozen from organizations I’ve heard of but didn’t have a connection.” Continuing to build that network is a priority, as is connecting with veterans in need. People looking for a way to connect a homeless or atrisk veteran with the proper services can email Eldridge at markeldridge_ 12529@hotmail.com.

Home&Garden Easy home makeover EMC lifestyle - Instead of making major renovations, transform your home by simply rejuvenating and modernizing. Give a favourite old couch a new look. Add some throw pillows in all sorts of colours and textures. Why not give your old chairs a new look too? Reupholster them in a rich-looking new fabric. You’d be amazed by how great a space can look once it’s cleared of knick-knacks, paperwork and random items. Why not plan a thorough spring cleaning and, while

you’re at it, be ruthless and toss or give away what’s no longer needed. Organize what’s left by investing in storage such as decorative baskets and boxes. This will help you show off those special pieces such as coffee tables, bookshelves and cabinets. Then rearrange books, picture frames and vases where they can now be seen and enjoyed. Fresh paint on the walls can instantly open up and appear to enlarge a room while also creating a dramatic or even subtle change in decor. Be ad-

venturous, but choose colours that will enhance your furniture and floors or carpets. For that finishing touch, paint your old furniture and picture frames a bold new colour that complements the room. Baseboards frame the entire space of your home, so keep them looking fresh and bright by vacuuming and cleaning. Plastic blinds and paper shades can do the job but won’t make the most of your windows or decor. Use options that will not only do the job but also look gorgeous.

Choose roman blinds in a beautiful fabric, wooden plantation shutters or luxurious looking curtains. Any of these affordable options gives long-term value, whether you plan to stay or sell. If your home is older, try lifting a small piece of carpeting. You might find gorgeous hardwood floors beneath. It will be worth the work to remove any carpet adhesives to be ready to finally sand and finish. www.newscanada.com

Instead of a doing a major renovation, try rejuvenating your home by modernizating it.

So, how do you choose the right dazzler for you? “We guide homeowners and renovators by asking a lot of questions about their taste, beauty preferences, family size, kitchen size and home decor,” says Diana Elliott at Blanco Canada, an industry leader in kitchen art technology. “Your choice may also be influenced by a favourite colour or material, by craftsmanship, or by a design you’ve already seen – and you may also be influenced by practical considerations like budget, installation challenges, and the amount of surface space available. “We always advise homeowners to take their time in choosing the very best quality they can afford since it is usually quite costly to upgrade later after countertops are cut and installed.” If you’re looking for excitement though, she says, don’t miss all the fuss right now over silgranit, a superstar material for sinks that was showcased this year at the 2013 Interior Design Show in Toronto. “Silgranit is a patented material that combines 80 per cent natural granite stone with a premium acrylic resin formula to deliver unprecedented strength and durability,” Elliott said. “Silgranit sinks are non-porous for exceptional hygiene and easy care.” More information is available online at www.blancocanada.com.

Renovating a bathroom, step by step EMC lifestyle - The work of renovating a bathroom starts with the plumbing and electricity. Those steps should be entrusted to qualified professionals who are aware of current building regulations and can conform to standards. Tell your plumber where you want the bathroom fixtures, taking into account the layout of the floor joists and the position of the drain. Explain to your electrician where you need electrical outlets and ventilation. If you want a heated floor or a whirlpool bath, he or she will ensure that there are free circuits available on your breaker panel. If there are none, the panel will have to be upgraded. Painting the walls and ceiling and replacing the floorcovering are much easier when the bathroom has been stripped of its old fixtures. Start with the paintwork and then proceed to the floorcovering; be sure to choose coverings that are easy to maintain and water and humidity resistant. The next step consists of installing the new fixtures and the taps. If you have opted for a custom ceramic shower that has to be built on site, start with that job, which shouldn’t present any difficulty for an experienced handyman. Next, install the bath, toilet and pedestal sink. Proceed with the sink first if it

OSU Player Kris Twardek becomes 1st Ottawa Player to sign with Pro Club in England Kris Twardek has struck the biggest goal in his career yet. The Ottawa South United (OSU) striker is no stranger to filling the net locally, and now he’s set to try his luck in England as a member of Championship side Millwall FC’s youth academy based in London. “It’s like the start to a dream come true,” reflects the Grade 10 Arnprior District High School student, who was introduced to OSU from the West Carleton Soccer Club when he was nine, in order to get the best possible soccer training available in Ottawa “I’ve always wanted to play soccer in a professional environment and this was an opportunity to do it. I’m thrilled.” Twardek went for a “nerve-racking” one-week try-out with Millwall back in November. Building on his experience from previous trials with Everton FC, the OSU player of eight years, made an impression in a hurry, scoring “more than I’m used to when I go overseas” during game action with the club. Millwall, who recently reached the FA Cup semis against Wigan FC, told Twardek they were interested in him before he left, details were ironed out with Kris his family and OSU, over the winter, and he’s now set to officially spend the next two years in southeast London once he arrives in June. Twardek, who will stay in a billet home with another teammate, had a peek at what his training schedule will look like and immediately felt energized. “It’s basically soccer all the time. That’s all you can ask for, really,” smiles Twardek, who’s headed to one of London’s dozen-plus pro clubs. “The atmosphere for soccer there, you couldn’t even compare it, I would say, to the hockey here. It means everything, for everybody.” Club ‘proud’ of model player OSU club head coach Paul Harris says it’s Twardek’s personality and mental edge that really makes him the full package, on top of tactical awareness, physique and the technical prowess that makes the standout dribbler an “exciting” player.

Twardek will become the first OSU product to sign with a pro academy overseas, on the heels of two other OSU Force Academy players recently joining Major League Soccer clubs in Toronto and Montreal. Harris, the former Everton FC youth academy coach, who also trained such players as Manchester City’s Jack Radwell and England’s U21 Ross Barkley, said that “We think that maybe we’ve got the players at a young age who now have this role model and will later be able to go on to this level.” Goodbye to ‘best friends’ The downside of joining Millwall, Twardek states, is that he’ll be leaving the club that’s provided him with so many opportunities, such as competing at the Gothia Cup in Sweden with OSU’s affiliate club from Dallas, winning the Robbie International Soccer Tournament and the Disney College Showcase with OSU, and finishing second in the Ontario Youth Soccer League this past summer.

“We’re delighted for Kris,” Harris signals. “To get a player from Ottawa, Canada – not a well-known football environment – to a professional environment in England is obviously something we’re really, really proud of and will firmly put OSU on the map as development club overseas.” Bill Michalopulos, OSU club President, added that “Kris’s achievement personifies all the hard work and exclusive networks that OSU has generated over OSU’s relatively short time in existence as a soccer club in order to provide the very best opportunities possible for OSU players on a global level and that all of 6,500 player strong OSU is proud of this milestone”. Jim Lianos the club’s General Manager stated that “Kris’s hard work and positive attitude for continuous improvement gave him the edge required to be seen and promoted by OSU at such high levels. It could not happen to a nicer kid”

“It’s been a journey with OSU Force97’s team and OSU. It doesn’t really stop here, but I mean, I’m leaving,” Twardek sighs. “The whole team is like my best friends. We’ve had lots of success together and we’ve had bad times together too. The team and OSU is like a family and we’re all brothers. “But I want to make a career out of soccer and this is a good opportunity to make that happen.”

Celebrating Children and Youth in Care

Innovation and Renewal

On May 14th, 2013 join the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa (CASO) in supporting Children and Youth in Care Day.

Glen Cairn Public School Open House You are invited to join us and share in our new vision! Thursday, May 16, 2013 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

This month, we are celebrating the strength and resilience of the approximately 700 children and youth in care. CASO becomes involved with families in the community when there may be a concern that a child or youth is at risk of abuse or neglect. Some of them are removed from their homes for a short period of time until circumstances are improved, some remain in care on an extended basis, and still others are adopted into new families. While their life paths are different than those of their peers, they face many of the same hurdles and challenges, and share the same hopes and dreams. We recognize the bravery and resilience shown by these children and youth in the face of adversity. The strength they have developed is admirable.

Over these many years together they have camped, hiked & canoed with family and friends. They keep active, in the city, with curling, golfing, “Mario services”, cooking scrumptious meals for friends & family, gardening & looking after their grandchildren. They are best known as “Grandma & Grumps” to the 7 grandchildren (Justin, Kayla, Katherine, Liam, Connor, Quinn & Kathleen) from their 4 sons Martin, Thomas, Kevin & Brendan. They also have 2 grand-dogs (Daisy & Toby). While they enjoy retirement & time to travel the world, D’Arcy can be found relaxing with the newspaper or his iPad accompanied with a glass of wine in hand. Erna does enjoy wine too, but she is equally content to sit with her husband of 50 yrs. with her cup of tea as she knits or plays Suduko. Congratulations for the many miles behind you and the many more yet to come!

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21

SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22

Aries, you may feel like you need to move faster to get ahead, but the opposite is true this week. Slow down and focus on the details and you will benefit. Taurus, though the first few days of the week may seem disastrous, hang in there and you will find things will turn around quite quickly.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21

Gemini, sometimes you have to make some noise to be heard, which may seem out of character for you. If the cause is that important, you will do what is necessary.

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22

Here’s How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

Cancer, you can’t get enough of a certain thing, but you may need to pace yourself. Otherwise your interest may start to wane. A surprise situation arises on Thursday.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23

Leo, there are things you need to say to a particular person in your life. But you do not know how to express your opinions in a way that’s easy to understand. Speak from the heart.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22

You may be feeling a bit under the weather this week, Virgo. It’s likely due to you pushing your schedule to the limits. Schedule some recovery time for yourself.

Libra, you need to rely on someone this week for a big project, but you don’t know who to choose. Make a list of your best prospects, and then you can narrow it down from there. You can use a break from the daily grind, Scorpio. It might be time to plan a getaway. You may want to make this a solo trip so you can fully recharge.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21

The truth can sometimes hurt a bit, Sagittarius. But a dose of honesty this week provides the reality check you have been needing. Make some changes.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20

Capricorn, an event this week gets you fired up and excited. It could be the news you have been waiting to hear from work or from a significant other.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18

Aquarius, knowing when to keep quiet can be difficult, especially when you suspect something is off-kilter. This week you will be put to the test.

PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20

Pisces, the week may begin somewhat aimlessly, but things will all come together by the middle of the week.
