The app, for Android, iPhone, BlackBerry cellphones and tablets, is a free download and offers information on all the events taking place, an interactive map, and more. “They’ll be able to get a listing of all the performances, the entertainment on site and the times,” said Sarah Dehler, head of environmental initiatives

on the committee. “In the past we’ve published it (in the Kourier-Standard) … but this actually puts it in people’s hands on site. That’s a big plus, as well as having information about the performers. We have a music tab where people can have access to downloads … the interactive map so they know what is where.” The app was developed by Preston Martelly of Java Logix Inc. and Mea-

gan Hanes of Love Digimedia. Users will also have the ability to upload photos of themselves enjoying the festivities. As well, the committee can send out alerts over all the accounts to keep people informed, said Dehler. “And really important there is the capability to make a donation to Canada Day in Kanata,” she added.

Residents give hospice thumbs up jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - Many residents think having a hospice in the Katimavik-Hazeldean neighbourhood in south Kanata is a good idea. Jill Jones, who lives across the street from Hospice Care Ottawa’s newest acquisition, said she’s pleased to see the organization moving in. “I’m just very happy to see the hospice coming here,” she said after a public meeting on June 19. “It all sounds good.” Hospice Care Ottawa, the umbrella organization of Friends of Hospice Ottawa (located in Kanata) and the Hospice at May Court (located in the Glebe), recently purchased the building at 110 McCurdy Dr., the former home of Trinity Presbyterian Church. The organization is preparing to move all of its administration programs in the west to the building, with the idea of building a residential hospice area in the future. “I like the attitude, I like the approach they’re taking,” said Jones. “When I got the letter in the mailbox (announcing the meeting) I’ve never been so pleased,” said another resident. HOSPICE CARE

Hospice Care Ottawa held an information session for residents to learn about the organization’s plans. Around 80 people attended the

gathering at the McCurdy Drive building last Wednesday. The move will take place in three phases, said Lisa Sullivan, the executive director of Hospice Care Ottawa. The first phase will be to move the administration side of Friends of Hospice by this fall. The second phase will be to expand the day programs offered by the organization and have more available at the Kanata site by 2014. The third phase is to build a 10-bed residential hospice on the site by 2016. “All these things are coming together,” said Sullivan. Residents raised questions such as what the residential hospice will look like, how much traffic the hospice will contribute to the streets and what will happen to the greenery on the property. Right now, nothing has been planned, said Sullivan, adding the hospice is committed to fitting in with the community and retaining the beauty of the property. She said traffic at the May Court property, which is nestled in the Glebe, has never been an issue with residents. Colizza Bruni Architecture will be helping to design the new hospice. The organization said it will keep the lines of communication open with the community as plans advance. “Our commitment is to provide you information so you know what is happening,” said Sullivan. “I want the hospice to become part of the community.” Traffic studies and design plans

will be available as they are completed, said Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley. “This is a much better proposal than a 10-storey building,” he said. “Everyone seems pretty happy with it.” FUNDS NEEDED

Hospice Care Ottawa is currently fundraising $6 million to help with the plans for the Kanata site. As well, the organization is looking for volunteers to join its team and will host training sessions in September. Palliative hospice care provides end-of-life treatment to people in their last days and or weeks. It also offers support to family and caregivers. All the services are free-ofcharge in a home-like setting. “It’s not only a sad place where people die,” said Sullivan. “It feels like home.” Trinity Presbyterian Church will be moving to a new location on Richardson Side Road to accommodate its growing congregation, said Rev. Shaun Seaman. “If we do have to leave this beautiful place, can we think of a ministry or a service more beautiful than a palliative care hospice?” he asked. “We feel blessed by that.” Sullivan said this move is a dream come true. “We are just thrilled that this is becoming a reality,” she said.

Emotional service marks Trinity Presbyterian’s final day Church gives way to hospice Emma Jackson

emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - A Kanata congregation is breaking down walls as fast as it can build them. Members of Trinity Presbyterian Church held their final service on Sunday, June 23, as they prepared to leave the building on McCurdy Drive

for a new church at the corner of Richardson Side Road and Huntmar Road. The new church is set to be finished in time for Easter Sunday next year and until then the church’s 135 families will worship at the Kanata Community Christian Reform Church on Castlefrank Road. Trinity Presbyterian Church held its first service on McCurdy Drive at 3 p.m. on May 24, 1981. Bringing those 32 years full circle, on June 23 Rev. Shaun Seaman included the same hymns and scripture readings in his service that

carried down the aisle while Seaman carefully unhooked the simple wooden cross at the front of the sanctuary. He carried it out of the church over his shoulder. Outside, the congregation gathered in a circle for a small ceremony outside with the items. In honour of the emotional day, Seaman delivered a hopeful sermon to the small congregation, which encouraged members to break down figurative walls between themselves and others even as the church strives to build physical walls around its new church. Seaman said walls stand between us when we fear or judge each other out of ignorance or prejudice. By breaking down those walls, he said, the church can foster unity, peace and community with all people, regardless of gender, race, religion or sexual orientation. He reminded his congregation that the construction of the new church offers an opportunity to welcome everyone in, rather than keep certain people out.

were read on that first day of worship. Morgan Strickland then sang a version of the Lord’s Prayer in a soaring operatic voice, after which she promptly burst into tears. From then on, there were few dry eyes in the sanctuary as the service drew to a close. With an upbeat hymn keeping tears at bay, members of the church slowly stripped the sanctuary of its sacred items for a symbolic procession out of the church at the end of the service. Banners, paintings, candles and small tables were

ing to expand for a long time. “We’re building a bigger church, so we’re hoping to make it available for more people to come and worship,” he said, adding that the church wants to be an active part of

the larger community. “We’ve been very restrictive in terms of community use here so we’re hoping to make our new facility much more available to community groups.” Rev. Ralph Kendall was the church’s first minister and he came from Toronto to take part in the final service. He said the change was a long time coming. “My dream when I was here was for this to happen,” said Kendall. “This wasn’t a closing so much as a moving forward.” The Hospice Care Ottawa will take over the church building this summer.

Fahey offered a list of tips to help people avoid being marked: • Ensure your garage, shed, home and vehicle are always locked, even when you are home. • Ensure car windows and doors are closed tightly and locked. • Park facing the street and in a well-lit area so that anyone tampering with your vehicle is more noticeable. • Don’t leave valuables in your vehicle, such as personal identification, vehicle registration, insurance certificates or credit cards.

Safety tips also apply to drivers to increase the safety of cyclists: • Treat bicycles as you would any other vehicle on the road. Cyclists generally ride in the rightmost through traffic lane, about one meter from the curb or parked cars. • When passing a cyclist, leave a safe distance between your car and the bicycle. Give extra passing distance during slippery road conditions. • Pass at a moderate speed and give plenty of space on quiet roads. Cyclists may be startled by fast-approaching vehicles. Shoulder check and signal all lane changes and turns. • Check for bicycles in your side view mirror before opening your car doors.

EDITORIAL

Well, what now Queen’s Park?

S

o, the province has declared it won’t support an interprovincial bridge crossing at Kettle Island. OK. This newspaper has supported the construction of at bridge at that location in the past, but barring a change in the political winds, the route favoured by the National Capital Commission appears to be dead in the water. But what does the city do now? That the capital region needs another Ottawa River crossing does not need any further justification: the last bridge, Portage, was built by the NCC in 1973 when the area population stood at about half of what it is now. As cities grow, the need for infrastructure grows along with it. So what do we do now? The province has said it will work with the city to develop a new transportation master plan to accommodate future growth, but the need for a new interprovincial crossing can’t be ignored by such an exercise – Ottawa and Gatineau don’t exist independently of one another. Some have suggested constructing a tunnel beneath the river to divert truck traffic away from Lowertown – King Edward Avenue is currently the most-used route into the city for trucks moving to and from Gatineau – but such a plan would cost

significantly more than a bridge. Perhaps one of the other routes studied by the NCC, at Lower Duck Island or McLaurin Bay, would be better. Except they have both been identified as being more expensive, according to the NCC’s studies, and would require significant additional infrastructure to connect with the rest of the road network. Whatever the answer, action needs to be taken. An east-end interprovincial crossing has been discussed for decades and the issues are not going away any time soon. The efficient transport of goods to and from the city is vital to economic growth, which effects employment, wealth and consumer prices in the capital region. Now that the province has taken its stand, what will it do to address the problem? It was not particularly helpful to denounce a plan without offering an alternative. Perhaps the government wants to take some time to study the issue, but haven’t we been doing just that for more than 20 years? It would have been more responsible of Transportation Minister Glenn Murray to resist making his announcement until the province had something tangible to offer the residents of Ottawa in the way of an alternative. No action simply is not a responsible choice when it comes to Ottawa’s future.

You can’t get there from here in a big city

T

he other day someone was talking in the paper about light rail and the lamentable absence of a north-south route. As luck would have, this discussion coincided with a couple of drives to the airport and back, in the period between 4 and 6 p.m. Don’t ever do this. As far as I can figure out, having tried all the available routes to and from the middle west of Ottawa, you can’t get there from here. And you can’t get back. And sure, you can suggest picking some other time of day, but you might have a hard time convincing the airlines to change their schedules. The big problem is that everybody wants to go south and more and more of them are choosing the Airport Parkway (by the way, how come it hasn’t been named after Sir John A. Macdonald yet?). Most of them don’t use the parkway to get to the airport. They us it get to other places and the parkway, nicely narrowing from four lanes to two just when the four are most needed, can’t handle the traffic. Nor can Bronson Avenue, as the people who live in the Glebe have long known. And even getting to the parkway is no pic-

At certain points the east-bound and west-bound travellers can stare across the median at each other as they sit mired in traffic. That leaves the Merivale-Hunt Club-Uplands Drive option, which worked pretty well about 15 years ago. Merivale is, well, Merivale. And Hunt Club has a huge jam-up, just about any time of day, at its Riverside and Prince of Wales intersections. Still, it takes about the same amount of time as the Baseline-Merivale-Airport Parkway option – which is to say, twice the amount of time it takes in off hours. You’d think it would be easier coming back, but it isn’t. The parkway sails along

nicely, but Hunt Club has the same problems going east. Baseline-Heron has the same congestion going west. Face it, everybody wants to go everywhere. At a certain time of day, every direction in Ottawa seems to contain a favourite destination. You can sit still in your car no matter which direction you are facing. One driver, lulled by a smooth ride north on the parkway, decided to stay on it, head north on Bronson to Carling. That worked well until three blocks from the Carling intersection, when everything decided to stop moving for 15 minutes. An option would have been to keep going and turn onto the Queensway, but why would anyone do that? It is easy enough for an occasional visitor to the airport to complain, but there are people who have to do this, or a variation of it, every day, usually at a time when everybody else is trying to do it as well. And you only have to drive south a bit and look at all the new construction to realize that the situation is going to be way worse in the near future. It would be nice to think that the new Strandherd Bridge, if it is ever finished, will make things better, but it is hard to see how it can help much. Building some light rail out there would

really help, but that is probably decades in the future, not to mention many millions of dollars. More houses are going up and more people are traveling on the same roads. Maybe some of them will start working from home. Maybe some employers may decide to locate where the people are. You can only hope. Meanwhile there will be considerable agitation to build more lanes on this road and that, which never seems to solve anything. We wanted to become a big city. Well, guess what.

Sleep isn’t a luxury – it’s essential BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse influence of alcohol, even putting women at higher risk of sexual harassment and unwanted pregnancies. A 2011 Norwegian study on the subject shockingly concluded that long-term sleep deprivation triples women’s risk of getting fibromyalgia. Researchers began by interviewing 12,350 healthy, pain-free women about their sleep habits. A decade later, those who had identified sleep difficulties at the beginning of the study were three times more likely than those who said they slept well to have developed fibromyalgia symptoms. All this is horrible and shocking, but is it enough to make a nation of fatigued individuals change our behaviour? Probably not. But what if we consider how inadequate sleep affects our children? I have friends -- mothers -- that haven’t had a full night’s sleep in more than a decade. They don’t believe in sleep-training, they say, which means they’ve got toddlers waking every two hours to feed and school-aged children refusing bedtimes or waking up frequently with night terrors. Children need a lot more sleep than parents realize. School-age kids need 10-11 hours of uninterrupted sleep per night to be healthy. Kids under four need 11-12 hours of consecutive sleep per night, plus 2-3 hours during the day. And what happens if

they don’t? Well, not only does it put their immune systems at higher risk of contracting viruses, but, as Savage notes in her Maclean’s piece, researchers have found “inadequate sleep in children has been linked to hyperactivity and even incorrect diagnosis of attention deficit disorder (ADD).”Recently, we were experiencing some issues with one of our children. Was it ADD? He seemed chronically anxious, temperamental and frustratingly inattentive. It wasn’t until I started researching sleep that I realized he’s been running a deficit for several weeks – call it endof-school fever. We rolled

back his bedtime by an hour and, within a week, he’s become a different kid. When I’ve advocated for sleep training to some parents, they’ve made the false assumption that sleep training causes anxiety. In fact, the opposite is true. Most disturbing to me, as a parent, is the link between sleep deprivation and depression, including chronic depression leading to suicide. As a parent, I see it as my responsibility – not a mere choice – to teach my kids to respect sleep, and show them, with love, how to get there, from as early as possible. I’m working out two hours per day minimum. The only exception is on days when I don’t get a good night’s sleep. Thankfully, even with an infant (who sleeps 11 hours consecutively per night, on average), we’ve managed to keep those to a minimum.

f health statistics are to be believed, I spent most of the winter living like most of you, dear readers. In other words, I ate too much, sat too much, drank too much and failed to get 150 minutes of exercise per week, (like a shocking 80 per cent of adult Canadians). These are all things that contribute to chronic disease and early death. As a recent Maclean’s cover story highlighted, however, there’s something else that’s debilitating and slowly killing us -- sleep deprivation. Adults require 8.5 hours of sleep, on average, per night, yet most of us are running a devastating sleep deficit. The June 24th feature highlighted a number of disturbing medical studies that would suggest it’s time to better prioritize sleep in our lives. One, out the University of Chicago, restricted seven healthy, thin volunteers to 4.5 hours of sleep per night. “Their very cells had been transformed,” summarizes journalist Luiza Ch. Savage in Maclean’s. “It was as if the bodies of the otherwise healthy specimens had been swapped with that of someone else: someone heavy and sick.” Savage goes onto summarize a number of international studies that not only link sleep deprivation to depleted cell growth and repair, diabetes and obesity, but also to decreased pain tolerance, weakened memory and impaired social judgment. One scientist quoted in the article went so far as to suggest that sleep deprived individuals act in a similar way to those under the

CANADA DAY LETTERS

Connected to your community

What makes you proud to be a Canadian? Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - What makes you a proud Canuck? This week, the Kanata Kourier-Standard prints some of the letters sent by our readers telling us what they love about Canada.

Being Canadian in Greece

SUBMITTED

Kanata resident Kim Han was pleasantly surprised to find that being Canadian carries weight when travelling abroad.

Dear Editor, Weighed down by our backpacks, my daughter and I trudged through the streets of Athens looking for a hotel where we could spend the last night of our stay in Greece. We had just arrived from Hydra, one of the prettiest Greek islands in the Saronic Gulf that rises almost 600 metres above sea level. Characterized by its rocky hillsides and pine forested valleys, Hydra is a trekker’s paradise. No cars, motorbikes, neon signs and high-rise buildings are allowed on the island to preserve it as a national historic landmark. The only transport is by donkey, bicycle or on foot. This is where wealthy Athenians head for relaxing week-end breaks, away from the hustle and bustle of Greece’s national capital. Athens was crowded with masses of people. Air pollution and traffic noise were a stark contrast to the clean air, peace and quiet of Hydra. With our map in hand we walked wearily from one hotel to another. There were no vacancies anywhere! It was May 1. We didn’t know it was Labour Day. People were off work and had come to Athens to celebrate.

Our backpacks weighed heavily on our backs when we spotted a hotel, some 30 metres away. Again we were told there was no vacancy. Dejected, I heaved a heavy sigh: “Our flight home is not until tomorrow. We really need a place to spend the night.” “Home? Where is home?” the clerk asked. “Canada.” “Canada?” he hesitated, as if struck by an idea. “Wait a minute. I talk to management.” A couple of minutes later he appeared. With a flourish of his hand and a smile he said: “For Canadians, we always make room.” Our eyes lit up in surprise and our hearts filled with pride to be Canadians and have Canada as our home. Kim Han Kanata ***

History a valuable lesson Dear Editor, My name is Vedashri Shimpi. I am a Grade 7 student at Roberta Bondar Public School. In history (class), I am learning about the rebellions of Upper and Lower Canada. I am glad the rebellions happened because they made the Canada we have today. We wouldn’t have a democracy, we wouldn’t have a Canada if it weren’t for such a “small” event in history, which was in reality, a huge event. We should be thankful for the amazing country we live in. Why does everyone move to Canada? Because Canada is a wonderful country! Why does Canada have a high Human Development Index (HDI)?

Simply Canadian Dear Editor, What makes me proud to be a Canadian? The answer is very simple; we are simple people from coast to coast. We sing Oh Canada when needed and we are happy when we support our sports teams win or lose, simply because we participate. When the Ottawa Food Bank announces they are running low on food collection, we flood them with donations. We participate in every run being held, whatever the cause is, to show support and I am sure it is the same from coast to coast. That’s what we are: we are simple Canadians. We moan and groan about weather and we say few things about scandals (never a dull moment) about politics whether it is at federal, provincial and city level but we carry on. We are simple Canadians, nothing more nothing less and this is enough of a reason to be a proud Canadian. A proud Canadian, Anant Nagpur Old Ottawa South

EMC news - Construction of the Richcraft Recreation Complex is well underway and staff are now looking at the types of programming the facility will offer. Two recreational sport groups – badminton and table tennis – were well represented at a meeting on June 20 that drew a handful of residents to discuss possible programming at the new centre. Kevin Willington, who lives in north Kanata, said there is a need for more badminton programming in the west end. With a number of clubs and drop-ins already at capacity, there is a long list of people waiting to hit the courts. “All the clubs have waiting lists,� he said, adding he wants to see drop-in times, opportunity for training and courts available for clubs at the recreation complex. Willington, who coaches youths, said the Kanata Junior Badminton Club, which plays on Fridays, has a minimum of 180 children registered, with 40 to 50 always on the waiting list to play. “(There’s a) need to cater to juniors,� he said. The Kanata Badminton Club, of which Willington is a member, holds games five nights a

week and is always at capacity. The club “has a membership of 150 adults and has been at full capacity since the late 1970s,� said John Russell, who’s been playing the sport for 35 years. Russell, past president of the Ottawa and District Badminton Association, lives in north Kanata and coaches in schools. He said badminton appeals to a broad spectrum of people, making it a popular sport. “Badminton is moderately inexpensive, it’s non-contact, it’s gender neutral,� he said. “This is a sport that can be played by ... anybody and everybody,� said Willington. “And you can learn at any age. It’s a very social sport.�

Many at the meeting also wanted to see available space and times for table tennis. Table tennis is a popular sport among Kanata’s large Asian and Chinese community, said Wen Jean Ho, founder of the Kanata Chinese Seniors Support Centre. Alyssa Kong said her husband has to pick up their children by “3:30 sharp� in order to beat the rush hour traffic downtown so they can play and practice.

The Kanata Lakes family makes the trek three to four times a week. “We have to play far away,” said Kong, adding it would be nice to have table tennis available in Kanata for children, youth and adults, instead of having to travel outside the community. Horatio Pintea and his wife Lijuan Geng are founders of the Geng Table Tennis Academy and both are big names in the sport – Pintea played in the 1996 and ’98 Olympics and Geng is a four-time world champion. Pintea said there is one table tennis drop-in twice a week in Glen Cairn, but it’s “always full” and only for adults. “There’s nothing in Kanata (for youth),” he said. “We have a table tennis club but no gym space.” PROGRAMMING

The city will focus on three areas of programming for the Richcraft Recreation Complex: aquatics, fitness and recreation, said Chantal Laport, the new manager of the facility. Aside from traditional programming in those categories, such as aqua fitness, group exercise classes and recreational sports, residents offered up other innovative possibilities.

It’s going to be a very lively, active place. COUN. MARIANNE WILKINSON

At the table discussing youth programming, a resident raised the point of starting a Rainbow Club for youth in the community. Another idea was a one-time drop in class, where teens can try their hands at an activity before signing up for a full course. Aside from programming, fundraising efforts to help pay for additional features to the complex are still underway. Time capsules, as well as paver stones for the community walkway can be purchased from Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson’s office. Construction on the Richcraft Recreation Complex is set to be finished around September, said Wilkinson, with the facility open for use in November or December. “It’s going to be a very lively, active place,” she said. “It’s coming together now.”

CFUW sponsors guide dog training Jessica Cunha

jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - A Kanata women’s group is sponsoring the training of a guide dog in memory of a former member. The Canadian Federation of University Women/Kanata donated the second portion of the Claudette Tougas scholarship trust to the training of Tess II, a yellow Labrador-Golden retriever. “Claudette had a guide dog of her own from Manotick that served her very, very well,” said Monique Tougas, Claudette’s sister. “(Delilah) was her beloved dog as well as her beloved companion and her eyes for many years.” Claudette, who was visuallyimpaired, was a long-time member of the women’s federation. She graduated with a degree in psychology from the University of Toronto, worked for the government, was a published author and champion for the blind. “As a fully bilingual and completely blind woman, she pioneered the development of

support services for disabled employees … she successfully challenged the City of Ottawa for the inclusion of visually impaired persons for the use of ParaTranspo,” said her obituary. Claudette died after a fouryear battle with breast cancer in 2010. The bond between Claudette and Delilah was one of the reasons the women’s federation decided to donate the second portion of the scholarship to the Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind. “The dog went to her as soon as it was trained and retired with her,” said Monique. “She retired from the government and the dog retired as well, and then was with her until (Delilah) passed away.” The first portion of the scholarship was donated to Kendra Matthews-Gramer, a then-Grade 12 student at Notre Dame High School in 2011.

Tess II will remain in pre-training until fall 2014, when she will begin training at the Manotick centre. “The organization has trained and provided 724 guide dogs to visually impaired Canadians (since 1984),” said Steven Doucette, special events and guider co-ordinator.

In 2010, the charity launched an assistance dogs division, which trains canines to help those with mobility-related disabilities, said Doucette.

Food cupboard launches a revolution Clients now have access to fresh items:board Jessica Cunha

jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - The Kanata Food Cupboard has launched a Fresh Food Revolution. Clients of the organization now have the opportunity to select fresh foods and produce, along with other items under the cupboard’s grocery store concept.

“As part of the grocery store concept ... at the end they have access to everything in our fridges,” said Jenna Sudds, who sits on the board of the food cupboard. The first phase of the Fresh Food Revolution, the grocery store concept, was launched last November. It allows for clients to select their own food from the cupboard’s shelves, based on their needs and any dietary restrictions, instead of receiving a pre-arranged basket of goods. With the second phase, clients will always have access to apples, carrots and potatoes, and then a selection of in-season fruits and vegetables, as

well as milk, eggs and meats, said Sudds. “It’s a huge change,” she added. The official launch of the Fresh Food Revolution is July 2, but the food cupboard has been collecting donations since June 15 at the Kanata Farmers Market. “When we left, we had two big baskets of food and a jar full of money,” said Sudds. “We had a great variety (of produce).” The food cupboard’s summer student, Taylor Davidson is hosting the booth every Saturday until Aug. 3 at the farmers market, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. where people can donate fresh foods or funds for the initiative. The program has already received compliments from clients, said Sudds, adding people are happy they have the option to select healthy and nutritious items. Aside from donations at the

farmers market, the food cupboard is also receiving fresh goods from Laura’s Your Independent Grocer. “She’s delivering food for us twice a week,” said Sudds. Sudds said the food cupboard is also encouraging people to plant an extra row in their garden with vegetables for the organization. She said she received a call from a woman two weeks ago who said her building had planted six additional beds on the roof with items for the food cupboard. People wishing to donate items need to call ahead to ensure someone is there to receive the goods and put them in the fridge, said Sudds. To schedule a drop-off, call 613-836-7847 or email info@kanatafoodcupboard.ca. For more information or to donate online, visit the website at kanatafoodcupboard.ca.

Kanata North celebrates citizens of the year Jessica Cunha

jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - Kanata North celebrated its residents and businesses with the inaugural Community Recognition Awards on June 18. Fourteen people were nominated in four categories – business, youth citizen, senior citizen and adult citizen of the year. “I thought it would be nice to honour the volunteers in Kanata North,” said ward councillor Marianne Wilkinson. “There are so many volunteers in our community.” Residents were invited to submit the nominations. Judges Jo-Anne Poirier, Suzanne Jacobson and Mario Poirier poured over the submissions and selected the winners in each category. “I want to congratulate all the nominees,” said Wilkinson. “Each one of you is deserving.” Next year, Wilkinson said she expects to see more people nominated and is looking at adding a new category for non-profit of the year.

“The Williams were instrumental in fundraising for the Ron Maslin Playhouse and the Kanata (Civic) Art Gallery, as well as volunteering for the Kanata Food Cupboard,” said Angela McGree, assistant to the councillor and emcee for the event. Bill passed away last September. “Bill, he would have been amazed, absolutely stunned. I was,” said Ann of the award, adding she wanted to thank those who nominated her and her husband. Ann said her mother instilled the spirit of volunteering at an early age. Ann also volunteers at the San Francisco botanical gardens when she visits her family in the United States. “I’ve known Ann and Bill for a long time,” said Wilkinson. “They did work together on so many different things.” See NINE, page 16

Councillors seek help for victims of ‘sewer blasts’ Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley is spitting mad over the city’s lax procedures to help homeowners who fall victim to the city’s “sewer blasts.” There’s no way to put it delicately, Hubley said. The way the city clears blocked sewer pipes can sometimes cause the sewer’s contents – including human waste – to explode from a toilet into someone’s home. This happens to an average of 55 buildings in the city each year, according to a 2009 city report. “It’s hazardous waste,” Hubley said. But there is a simple way to prevent it, he said – one that he has been working with city staff to implement since shortly after he was elected in 2010. “(Staff) told me the simple solution is … what your mother told you as a young boy: to put the (toilet) seat down,” he said. Since he found that out thanks to an inquiry by his predecessor, Peggy Feltmate, Hubley has asked for staff to let him know before they show up on a street to clear the sewers. He sends out a flyer to all the affected homes to let them know how to prevent issues. Hubley thought that was being done for councillors across

Trout with fresh jerk sauce tantalizes the tastebuds EMC lifestyle - The delicate texture of farm raisedtrout is enhanced by a light coating of cumin-scented cornmeal. As a contrast to its mild sweet taste, we’ve created a bold sauce from fresh Ontario vegetables. Preparation time: 15 minutes. Cooking time: 20 minutes. Serves four with 375 ml (1-1/2 cups) of sauce. INGREDIENTS

Fresh Jerk Sauce • 4 green onions, sliced • 3 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped • Half a jalapeno pepper, seeded and coarsely chopped • 1 sweet red pepper, cut into chunks • 3 large tomatoes, coarsely chopped • 15 ml (1 tbsp) packed brown sugar • 2 ml (1/2 tsp) each dried thyme leaves, ground ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and garlic salt

• 1 ml (1/4 tsp) cayenne pepper • Canola oil •125 ml (1/2 cup) chopped fresh coriander (optional) Trout • 2 rainbow trout fillets (375 g/12 oz each), skin removed • 175 ml (3/4 cup) cornmeal • 15 ml (1 tbsp) ground cumin • 1 ml (1/4 tsp) salt • 1 egg • 75 ml (1/3 cup) milk • 20 ml (4 tsp) butter PREPARATION

Fresh jerk sauce: Place the onions, garlic and jalapeno in a food processor. Whirl until the contents are coarsely ground. Add the sweet pepper and tomatoes with seeds and juice. Add sugar, thyme, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, garlic salt and cayenne pepper. Pulse until the mixture is chunky and pepper is chopped, about 10 times. Don’t puree.

In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the sauce and boil gently, uncovered and stirring often, until thickened – about 20 minutes. Stir in the coriander, if you are using it. Trout: Cut fish into serving-size pieces. In a shallow dish, combine the cornmeal, cumin and salt. In another dish, whisk egg with milk. One at a time, coat both sides of fish in egg mixture and then in cornmeal mixture. In large skillet, melt 15 ml (1 tbsp) of the butter, over medium heat. Add the coated fish and cook until golden, for about three to five minutes. Add remaining butter to side of pan. Turn fish, letting melted butter flow over pan before placing fish down and cook for about three to five minutes. Remove to plates. Spoon the jerk sauce on top and beside the fish. Foodland Ontario

Father overworked, overtired this time of year

W

ould he topple over and fall out of the rocker? Would he hit the floor with a thud, maybe banging his head on the oven door? I was sitting at the kitchen table. I was alone. My sister Audrey said she had better things to do than waste time looking through the Eaton’s catalogue. The three brothers were doing what they did every night in the summer: they were outside throwing balls, using their sling shots or shooting off their B.B. guns. The sun was still streaking through the west window and the kitchen had been redded up. Bedtime was just a couple hours away. I sat very quietly watching Father. He looked smaller, I thought. Maybe it was the way he was sleeping in the rocker. He didn’t hear his pipe fall to the floor and the Ottawa Farm Journal lay across his knees unopened. His chin was on his chest and I could see him breathing, his plaid shirt rising and falling gently. It had been a long day for Father. Chores were done before sun-up. The plow and other pieces of farm machinery had been moved on the stone boat to the back fields across the Bonnechere and over the West Hill weeks before. By the time Father was finished with the morning chores, got the milking done and eaten his breakfast, he would be ready to take the team across the shallowest part of

MARY COOK Memories the Bonnechere and head over to the back fields. He would have picked up the basket of lunch Mother had made the night before, and we wouldn’t see him again until it was time to come back home for the evening chores. Dust of the fields still clung to his face. He had taken off his work boots and his heavy wool socks were covered in soil and bits and pieces of grass. I could see the edge of his combination underwear showing under his plaid shirt, and I wondered if I dared go and straighten up his head, so that he would be more comfortable. But of course that would wake him from his much needed sleep. I wondered why he didn’t go to bed right after his supper, as I sat and watched his worn out body curled uncomfortably in the old rocker. But then he wouldn’t be able to check on the barns, which he never failed to do before falling into bed. There were fields to plow and cultivate, and grain to plant. There was scant time to do it in, as Father tried to outsmart the weather. So from dawn to dusk, Father

like every other farmer around us, was tied to the habits of the season. Father wasn’t a big man. The three brothers were all taller by several inches. My brother Emerson towered over him. But Father was wiry and as straight as a die. But as I sat and watched him, I was scarcely breathing and making not a sound, so that I wouldn’t disturb his rest, I thought he looked so much older than he did before summer planting began. The heat of the day was heavy on him and even though it was summer, he still wore his plaid shirts with the long sleeves. So I sat quietly, watching Father breathe, not a muscle stirring in either of us. And I was overcome with a deep sadness, as I looked at him in the rocking chair, his feet in their usual place on the turned-down oven door. I wondered, can someone die from overwork? What if one day he didn’t come home from the back fields? What would happen to us? The sun had gone down behind the grape arbour and the kitchen was darkening, but yet there was daylight and I was still alone at the old pine table, Eaton’s catalogue unopened in front of me, and with my eyes never leaving Father. He would stay there until everyone came in from outside, banging doors and scraping their feet on the mat, tossing their bats and balls into the

box beside the stove. Mother would stop a moment in front of Father and then she would do what she did every night this time of year: she would tap Father on the shoulder. She may have to do it several times to bring him out of his deep sleep. He would slowly raise his head and look around the kitchen as if he were lost. I would move myself away from the table and go over to the rocker and pick his pipe up off the floor and put the Ottawa Farm Journal on the bake table.

Father would shuffle over to the bedroom door off the kitchen and he would turn to Everett and tell him to be sure to check the barns before he went to bed. Soon I would hear the creaking of the bed springs and if I listened closely from my spot at the kitchen table, I would hear a deep sigh, followed by soft snores as Father settled down his tired body for the night. It was just another day, no different than the one before, and no different than the one coming after.

Home of the Ottawa Senators to be renamed Canadian Tire Centre Tire shares those values,” he said.” In addition, the partnership will see the launch of a new series of marketing and community programs with Canadian Tire, and also bring their charities even closer together to serve our community. “Without a doubt, this is a partnership that is good for our business, our hockey team, and most importantly, good for our community and our fans,” said Melnyk.

EMC news – The Ottawa Senators have scored with a new partnership. Senators Sports & Entertainment announced on June 18 that the home of the NHL team, Scotiabank Place, will be renamed Canadian Tire Centre. Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk said the longterm agreement will include enhanced community and grassroots activities to help get more kids into the game. The agreement takes effect July 1 and arena-related signage will be in place in time for the 2013-14 NHL season. Present during the announcement were Sens players Daniel Alfredsson, Chris Neil, Kyle Turris, Patrick Wiercioch, and Chris Phillips. Children from Canadian Tire’s Jumpstart program were also on hand to meet their favourite Sens player after the formal announcement at Scotiabank Place. Melnyk called the partnership one that dated back to the club’s establishment, and which the organization could

Ottawa Senators enforcer Chris Neil signs the shirt of one of the Jumpstart program’s participants after the hockey club announced the renaming of what was formerly Scotiabank Place to Canadian Tire Centre on June 18. be proud. “We have many corporate and community sponsors that we are very proud to be associated with, but few who can say they’ve been with us from the very beginning,” he said. “It is a long and storied partnership that has strengthened over more than two de-

cades in large part because of a mutual passion for the game of hockey. Needless to say, it’s a partnership we are very proud of, and are pleased to be able to build upon today’s announcement.” Melnyk said they decided to partner with the corporation not only because of its

iconic brand, but because of its healthy relationship with its customers. “As our fans know, I am deeply committed to supporting our great city on so many levels in the past decade, and I want our fans to know, and the great people of our city to know, I will always work very, very hard to grow our team of partners who have those same values of being committed to community service. Canadian

Senior vice president of corporate affairs for Canadian Tire, Duncan Fulton, said the signing of the agreement allows them the chance to review the contract every decade or so, with an unlimited number of tender renewals. “The deal we have essentially allows us to be here as long as we’d ever want,” said Fulton. “This is a long term deal for us, and our history in sport and in this region should give everyone comfort that we are here for a very, very long time.” The partnership is a natural fit, said Fulton, because both organizations share the same passion: sports. “We take seriously the role that we play in helping Ca-

nadians be active,” he added, before going on to say how Canadian Tire developed a program, Jumpstart, providing children with the opportunity to participate in sports and other activities. “We knew there were families that couldn’t afford the expensive after-school and weekend sports, so we started a charity, Jumpstart, that has helped 600,000 families put their kids into a whole range of activities – hockey, soccer, karate and even ballet,” said Fulton. “We also feel incredibly strongly about making sure all of our kids are more active.” Ottawa Senators president Cyril Leeder echoed Melnyk’s and Fulton’s comments, saying how the Canadian Tire brand has always been associated with hockey across the country. Scotiabank, he mentioned, will continue to be the official bank of the Ottawa Senators under a long term agreement. He thanked them for their long time partnership and support over the years. Part of that contract with Scotiabank was set to expire next year, said Melnyk, and Ottawa Senators were looking to take more of a direction towards sports, knowing full well their direction was more towards financial services.

families in the community in which we live and work is very important to us,” said Jeff Darwin, vice-president of Scotiabank’s Ottawa River District. “Our entire staff and customers have done whatever they could to help make such a significant contribution.” Walk, Roll and Run honours the memory of Roger Neilson, a former Senators assistant coach who died June 21, 2003, after a lengthy battle with cancer. This year the event paid tribute to Neilson by asking children to draw a colourful tie for the event T-shirt. Neilson was renowned for wearing a crazy assortment of colourful ties. The contest was a huge success with more than 180 submissions. Noah Barrett, 6, drew the winning design. This year’s event again featured Roger’s Dream Team - six courageous children currently receiving care from Roger’s House - and Roger’s All-Stars, a group of families who have come together to support fundraising efforts and celebrate the lives of their deceased children. Both campaigns were a success. “Our community is so fortunate to have a facility like Roger’s House. The care and support it provides to kids and families is second to none,” said Neil who is honourary co-chair of Roger’s House along with his wife, Caitlyn. “Seeing all the kids and families here today to support this annual event is incredible.” “The Sens Foundation is truly overwhelmed with the support from the community to come together once again and join us for a fun-filled day of celebration,” said

Victory moves club into first place tie with Montreal Transit EMC sports - The Ottawa Invaders’ turned in their best defensive effort of the season as they handed the Tri-City Outlaws a 30-13 loss at Beckwith Park Saturday, June 22. The win moves the Invaders into a first place tie with the Montreal Transit in the Northern Football Conference’s East Division. Both teams head into next week’s showdown in Montreal with identical 3-1 records. The Outlaws fall to 3-2. The Invaders defence held the Outlaws to just six yards passing, with three completions in 18 attempts. Christian Contreras and Craig Hodge had interceptions for the Invaders, while Hodge, Mike Lafond and Luka Gagnon had fumble recoveries. The Invaders took a 1-0 lead on a single by Jeff Morris, and then increased their lead later in the first when Jeff Hildreth tossed a 21-yard touchdown pass to Danny Mullins. Leith Fisken fired a pass in the end zone to Dan Buckley for the twopoint conversion, giving Ottawa a 9-0 lead. In the second quarter, the Outlaws got a big break as the Invaders

fumbled a missed field goal attempt in the end zone. Mark Fernandes recovered the ball in the end zone for the Outlaws. Jeff Mandelker added the extra point to make the score 97. Late in the quarter, defensive lineman Craig Hodge intercepted a pass to set up TJ Williams’ one-yard touchdown. Morris added the conversion to make the score 16-7 at the half. In the third quarter, Adam Gourgon scored on a three-yard run and Morris added the conversion to make the score 23-7. The Outlaws bounced back and put together a long drive, which culminated with quarterback Jeff Nosal scoring on a 10-yard run. The Outlaws went for the two-point conversion, but Nosal’s pass fell incomplete. In the fourth quarter, Fisken came in to finish the game for the Invaders, and he tossed a five-yard touchdown pass to former CFL star and Grey Cup legend Eddie Brown. Morris kicked the extra point to make the final 30-13. Hildreth completed 10 of 15 passes for 147 yards and one TD. Mullins caught three passes for 58 yards, while Andrew Foss had three catches for 34 yards. Gourgon had 60 yards on 12 carriers, while Williams added 29 yards on nine carries.

EMC news - Castlefrank Elementary School celebrated the end of the year and the end of an era on June 20. The school said goodbye to a number of students and staff, who will be moving to other schools next year. The elementary school will shift to a junior kindergarten to Grade 3 structure as part of new measures to help ease classroom overcrowding. “We’re marking the end of an era,” said principal Ron Henry during a school assembly. “This place is full of

memories, your memories.” During the celebration, the school unveiled a new mural, designed by parent Andrea (Andy) Pumphrey and her daughter Jordan, who will attend Katimavik Elementary School next year for Grade 8. The mural will be a permanent reminder of those who graced the halls during their years at the school, said Henry. “There’s probably close to 400 handprints on there,” said Andy. “Every single student and all the teachers and the staff (are represented).” The new mural contains a handprint of every student and staff member,

in the school’s colours, from the past year, along with silhouettes composed from a number of different students. “I think it’ll be really cool for the younger kids,” said Jordan. “This was once a place where some of their role models were.” PASSING THE TORCH

A ceremonial passing of the torch also took place. “As we say goodbye to our older students, we don’t want to lose their wisdom,” said Henry. Older students who will be attending

new schools next year passed along a symbolic item, along with a few words of wisdom, to the younger students who will stay on at Castlefrank. Items passed along included a library book to symbolize learning, a notebook to grow knowledge, a soccer ball to encourage fitness and good sportsmanship, and a can of food to represent helping others. The school also planted three firebushes in the front of the school. “The fire-bushes are meant to signify the fiery breath of Castlefrank’s dragon,” said Henry. The dragon is the school mascot. “We celebrate that

we’ll all be entering a new role this fall … to begin our next great adventure.” Grade 4 students and best friends, Caelan John, Gina Dang, Kate Hirkala and Jenna Marriner, said they’re excited to be moving to Katimavik next year, which will house grades 4 to 8 students, but that they are also sad to be leaving Castlefrank. Each of the four students helped to shovel some dirt onto the bushes to signify new beginnings. After the ceremonial planting, students, staff and parents enjoyed the school fair, which offered a bubble station, tug-of-war and other activities.

Police honour individuals, officers with awards sabine.gibbins@metroland.com

EMC news – The Ottawa police paid tribute to officers, emergency personnel, volunteers, and members of the public during their annual Community/Police Awards Ceremony, honouring individuals for their acts of bravery and service to the community on June 18 at Tudor Hall in Ottawa South. Mayor Jim Watson said he was honoured to attend such a moving ceremony. “Tonight we are recognizing a number of individuals who have made significant contributions to both our community and to the Ottawa Police Service,” he said. Chair of the police services board Eli El-Chantiry said it was the police services turn to say “hank you”. “It’s not just what you do on the job every day, it’s what you do over and beyond the job,” he told the recipients. Police Chief Charles Bordeleau said in all the circumstances experienced by the award recipients, they manifested at least one, if not all, of the following characteristics: dedication, selflessness, bravery,

compassion, and helpfulness. “This ceremony is a way of thanking you for possessing those admirable qualities and acting upon them,” he said. “This evening, we thank you for being the person that saw something that needed to be done, and did it. It’s important to recognize people who have shown dedication and commitment to our service and this great community.” PRESENTATIONS

Province should step in to help arbitration: El-Chantiry pleboeuf@metroland.com

EMC news - Arbitration reform at the provincial level is needed to keep police costs sustainable, says Ottawa Police Services board chair and West Carleton-March Coun. Eli ElChantiry. The Ottawa Police Services board agreed to cap the 2014 police budget with an increase of 1.99 per cent. This translates into about $3.6 million dollars which will need to be cut. El-Chantiry believes this target will be reached by cutting spending on fuel and storage and decreasing spending on printing and advertising. Though the nearly two-per-

COUN. ELI EL-CHANTIRY cent increase was agreed by all parities on Monday, future budgets may not be so easily ratified. Over the past decade, policing cots have doubled and every

year the increase is a “moving target” besieged by the whims of union arbitration. “Last time, we budgeted for 2.5 per cent and it came out to three per cent, so that half a per cent along in the police salary budget is over a million dollars,” said El-Chantiry. To avoid such a financial kerfuffle, deep changes must happen, namely that arbitration should be held at the provincial level, said El-Chantiry. “My only option is that the province takes on negotiations,” he said. “They negotiate teachers’ salaries and benefits, for nurses and doctors and others. Why don’t they take on emergency services and negotiate their salaries?”

Workers fired for taping children to beds Blair Edwards and Emma Jackson blair.edwards@metroland.com

Two workers at a Hunt Club-area day care have been fired after allegedly using masking tape to keep children in their cots during nap time. Three or four children were involved in the incidents at the day care at Bayview Public School, but none were injured, according to reports. The early childhood educators were suspended and later fired following an investigation by the nursery in February, by the Ottawa School Day Nursery, a not-for-profit organization that leases 13 facilities at elementary schools from the Ottawa public school board. “They don’t fall under the school district,” said Hyacinth Haddad, spokesperson for the board. Mark Fisher, trustee for Gloucester-Southgate/Osgoode, said he was taken aback by the reports of abuse at the Bayview centre. “I was just shocked when I read it,” he said. “I was just floored.”

He said the self-governing nursery will fall under the board’s governance starting in September. “OSDN will be merged back into the school board so we can use those assets and those people to help run the full-day kindergarten program,” he said.

There needs to be a balance in what the city can afford to

Policing alone doesn’t make a community safer, he claimed. One out of five police calls are mental health related and support is needed. “That’s what’s missing in this conversation,” said the chairman. “Let’s go back and evaluate what the police job is and what they should be doing.” El-Chantiry has been pushing for arbitration reform since

pay, what police deserve to be paid and what is being paid. Every half per cent increase in the policing budget equals to about $1.3 million that the city must pay. “That’s why I put the call out to the province,” said El-Chantiry. “Like either you fix arbitration so we have something balance here or you take on the negotiations with all emergency services.”

INCIDENT REPORTED

President of the Ottawa School Day Nursery Inc. Deborah Cooper said three or four children of unknown ages were not injured by the taping. The investigation was done in response to complaints from parents after it was revealed a child had been taped to a cot, Cooper said.

Cooper said she contacted the Children’s Aid Society and the Ministry of Children and Youth Services, as she is required to do, as they are responsible for Ottawa School Day Nursery Inc.

United Way to invest $24M in community Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - The United Way Ottawa announced it will be investing million dollars in the community this year. The United Way made the announcement that $24.5 million will be invested to programs, organizations and front-line services this year at the Michele Heights Community Centre on June 17. About half of the funding will go directly to three of the

organization’s focused areas: “growing up great,” “belonging to community” and “turning lives around.” Jamie McCracken, chairman of the United Way board, attended the event, saying this funding announcement was only made possible because of the support from donors. “Today’s announcement shows that thanks to the generosity of our donors,” he said. “You can see how this work is changing lives today and contributing to the positive

community improvements we want to see tomorrow.” The organization also released, for the first time, a report which details how donations made to the organization help contribute to change in the city at the announcement. The organization changed the way the way it allocates money raised from its annual campaign more than two years ago, crafting priorities and funding criteria in order to appeal to donors.

Hoping for some one to notice me and open their hearts and home and I could spend the rest of my life making them feel loved and happy. Come and meet me you will see what I say is true.... I am delightfully sweet.

Jeffrey Dale, chairman of the United Way’s community services cabinet, said the new report points to the impact of donations have on the community’s future. “Donors want to know how their contributions are invested and how they are making a difference,” he said. In March, United Way announced that $30 million was raised for the community campaign. Of the $24 million to be handed out, $12.8 million will be directed towards front-line programs, community-wide initiatives, targeted community investment and research focused on United Way’s three focused areas. “Growing up great” will receive $2.9 million to support community development work, with 29 front-line programs delivered by 20 agencies receiving $2.2 million, the Ottawa Child and Youth Initiative and other community development strategies receiving $299,000 and the targeted community investment receiving $$383,000. “Belonging to community” will receive $3.9 million, with $2.6 million being given to 32 agencies that run 45 different

Latest west LRT plans meet with mixed reaction While some satisfied with plan to partially cover parkway section, others still unhappy steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - The famous quote that begins with “You can please some of the people all the time …” can be applied to almost all major infrastructure projects, and the city’s western LRT plan is no different. The June 17 open house for the revised “Richmond Underground” plan, held at Ottawa city hall, brought residents into contact with planners, city engineers and political representatives, who all did their best to explain the details of the $980 million plan. Changes totaling $80 million had been made to the previous iteration of the plan, unveiled in April, to mitigate the effect on residents living close to the planned route. Reaction to the revised plan depended on who you talked to. The anticipated effects for residents living close to the line’s proposed route were still seen as too great in some cases. For others, making the best plan to benefit the most people was paramount. The Richmond Underground route has the LRT vehicles leaving an expanded Dominion Station at the western entrance to the existing Transitway trench, going underground about 300 metres west of that point, near the northern edge of Rochester Field. The line follows the Richmond Road corridor (underground, using a cut-and-cover technique) upon reaching Cleary Avenue (where Cleary Station would be located), heads past the proposed station at New Orchard Avenue before turning south and leaving the tunnel to meet the existing Southwest Transitway at Lincoln Fields. Opposition had been fierce to the first version of the plan, which would have had the LRT operating at-grade until reaching the proposed Cleary Avenue station. Other concerns raised including blocked access to Ottawa River bike paths, noise and visual pollution.

While the city says pathway access would be preserved and effects mitigated, opposition began as soon as the revised plan was unveiled the week prior to the open house. A local community group called Underground Solution, led by Skead Street resident Leslie Taylor, denounced the modified plan at the outset, saying that the entire western LRT line should be buried. Rich Brandau, a member of the group who lives on Westminster Avenue, sat down with an engineer at the open house to discuss his group’s concerns. He came away from the meeting still concerned about the greenspace along the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkways, between Cleary Ave. and Dominion Station. Despite a large portion of it being buried, surface vegetation would have to be removed and then replanted, he said, leading to a period of deforestation before it all grows back. “As a capital city, the view (heading downtown) on the parkway is important,” said Brandau, adding the at-grade stretch would still act as a barrier. “It is just a few acres (of land), but it’s all there is between the city and the parkway. It’s there for a reason, and it’s not without cost.”

STEPH WILLEMS/METROLAND

Residents discuss LRT options during an open house at city hall on June 17. Despite this, he said the plans show access to the river pathways being “way better than it was before.” While he said burying the entire line would solve much of the community concerns, Brandau stated he would prefer to see more early focus on the use of Carling Avenue as a secondary transit route. City treasurer Marian Simulik said cost is the deciding factor in why the city is proposing the Richmond Underground plan. Costing of alternate routes had pegged the Carling corridor at $2.31 billion (via the O-Train corridor) and $2.2 billion (via Churchill Avenue), thus making them too expensive.

“It’s a bit of an engineering challenge,” Simulik said of the Carling options, adding that the price tag for burying the entire western LRT line would also be prohibitively expensive. Simulik said the beauty of LRT – besides offering less congestion – is in the inherent operational cost savings when compared to internal combus-

that would result from using extra financial resources to serve one neighbourhood. “My role is to gather all of the concerns from all the different interest groups, and there are a lot of them -- one group does not speak for everyone, one group does not represent everyone,” said Hobbs. “There are a number of different neighbourhoods, condo complexes, interest groups - what we have to do here is work with all of that, all of the feedback, and design something that is affordable and is a good transit solution for the city. What we have to do is keep it under $1 billion, or we don’t have transit going further west, south and east, and that is not acceptable … . The cost of putting track to Kanata could be $400 million. It is unjustified to say I’m going to take that $400 million and apply it to a 300 metre section in Westboro.” Meetings and refinement to the plan will continue for the next two years before the city goes to the National Capital Commission for approval and begins seeking federal and provincial funding.

tion-engined buses running on exposed asphalt roadways. A 20 per cent reduction in operating costs can be expected, she said, minus the initial capital investment. Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs said city engineers have worked hard to mitigate the LRT’s local impact, but stated they have to work within a $1 billion envelope. “What we’re trying to do, as a city, is to mitigate the largest concerns as they were given to us at the April 25 meeting, and the ongoing communications at that time,” said Hobbs. “Although there is a group asking for everything to be underground, the likelihood of that happening is slim because of the budget we’re working with, and probably some engineering issues. The area we have underground is the area in front of the houses. The area we do not have underground is one small area – there are no houses there.” With opposition to the revised plan limited to distinct geographical regions and perceived impact to those neighbourhoods, Hobbs said residents need to keep in mind the impact to other communities

sen a winning design for the monument, which will overlook the National War Memorial and Wellington Street from the high ground at the southeast corner of Parliament Hill. Toronto-based artist Adrienne Alison’s contribution, titled Triumph Through Diversity, was selected following a design competition and lengthy judging process that involved a public open house. During the March 20 event, residents weighed in on two finalists. “The War of 1812 was an incredibly important turning point in Canada’s history,” said Alison via media release. “As a sculptor, it’s a great honour to be selected to create this monument for Parliament Hill so that all Canadians can connect with this pivotal time in our history.” Created to mark the 200th anniversary of the beginning of the war that saw colonial and first nations forces repel an American invasion of Upper and Lower Canada, the monument will be unveiled in the fall of 1814. The war brought with it a new sense of national unity within the fledgling British colony, leading to expansion and growth and paving the way for Confederation a half century later. Triumph Through Diversity consists of seven bronze figures perched close together atop a granite pedestal, flanked by two small stone boats. The monument represents the “coming together” of the diverse array of combatants in the conflict, who each set aside their differences and took up arms to repel the invasion. Alison’s work illustrates the two theatres of that war, which occurred on both land and water. Etchings into the stone will tell the story of the War of 1812 to Parliament Hill visitors. At March’s open house, Alison said she wanted to create a monument that was educational, but also easy to understand.

Parkbus a new option for car-less campers

Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - Love camping but don’t have a car? No problem. That’s the message the creators of Parkbus are spreading to Ottawans, now that the provincial park bus service that began in Toronto three years ago has come to the capital. Parkbus founders Boris Issaev and Alex Berlyand joined a group of campers at the Mountain Equipment Co-op in Westboro for the Parkbus’ inaugural trip from Ottawa to Algonquin Park on Friday morning. With stops at campgrounds, canoe access points and lodges, the bus is designed to open up the province’s largest park to urbanites who don’t own their own vehicles. “We’ve been running for the past three years out of Toronto -- ridership has been increasing, things have been going well, so we’ve started a new pilot project out of Ottawa,” said Berlyand. From its humble beginnings, starting with seven outdoor enthusiasts and a white van, the initiative soon attracted hundreds of Torontonians to the service. Ontario Parks quickly signed on to support the project, with funding also coming from the provincial government. Mountain Equipment Co-op, not surprisingly, is a strong supporter and partner of this initiative and many others. The outfitter has been funding Ontario Parks’ lifejacket loaner program for several years as a safety initiative. After the inaugural park run,

another trip will take campers and kayakers to the park in August and again in September. Bradley Fauteux, managing director of Ontario Parks, called Parkbus a “green, accessible policy” that all governments should support, referred to Algonquin Park as “the crown jewel” of Ontario’s parks system. Algonquin Park was created in 1893 as the first provincial park in Ontario, preserving a vast tract of pristine wilderness for residents to enjoy, and to protect. “We’re really committed to providing sustainable recreation and camping ongoing, so Parkbus is the kind of initiative we hope to support more of in the future,” said Fauteux. “Certainly, the entrepreneurship shown by these two young men is marvelous.” Ottawa Centre MPP and Labour Minister Yasir Naqvi said he hopes to see the Parkbus service continue in his community. “We’re calling it a pilot right now, but hopefully we can make it permanent,” said Naqvi. “I think it’s such a neat idea. If you don’t own a car, you still have the right to go to Algonquin Park and have a grand old time.” Information on the Parkbus’ schedule and destinations can be found at www.parkbus.ca

INTERNATIONAL BIRD AREA Did you know that there is a large area along both sides of the Ottawa River that is designated as an International Bird Area? This is due to its importance as both a fly zone for thousands of species who migrate north each year as well as a nesting area for many birds. I learned this at a presentation at the Museum of Nature last week where an informative exhibit is still on display. The area runs from Britannia to Constance Bay along the former course of the Ottawa River which is now swampy and contains several small lakes. Birds are an important part of the world’s ecosystem and I particularly am happy to see that many eat mosquitoes! A good place to visit is where Watt’s Creek empties into the Ottawa River (follow the road leading to the Connaught Range to the river).

West Carleton firefighters 40th anniversary reunion Patricia Leboeuf

pleboeuf@metroland.com

EMC news - The bond created between those in the fire service lasts for years, even decades. And that is why a 40th anniversary reunion of all former West Carleton township volunteer firefighters is being planned. If West Carleton, which was formed when the townships of Fitzroy, Torbolton and Huntley amalgamated in 1974, hadn’t been amalgamated into the new city of Ottawa, West Carleton, and its fire department, would have turned 40 in 2014. “It’s a chance to get together, see old friends, tell some stories,” said co-organizer and former volunteer firefighter David Burke Working with the current administration of the Ottawa Fire Services (OFS), who now provides fire protection to the former township, organizers still need to gauge interest among former West Carleton members and current Ottawa firefighters, stationed in the

West Carleton area. The event will be open to all who have worn the West Carleton Fire Department (WCFD) crest, or worked in the area as in the case of the current OFS members. Attendance and interest could fluctuate.

It’s a chance to get together, see old friends, tell some stories. DAVID BURKE

The old West Carleton department had 120 members working from its six stations at the time of amalgamation. Turn over in any volunteer fire service always occurs and Burke believes there could be several hundred in attendance, if the idea for this event is well received. A lot of the new current

men and women who work for OFS at West Carleton stations, might not know the history of the old department or area, said Burke Together they went thought many fire, prevented devastation and helped countless people. “Whether it’s fighting a neighbour’s fire, assisting them in a medical emergency or running a fundraising or charity event, you have a vested interest in your own community,” said Burke. “You never know if it’s going to be your neighbour who needs help.” He hopes that this community spirit will translate in a pronounced interest in the reunion. Former West Carleton firefighters, as well as current OFS members working in the area, as well as former dispatchers, or anyone who was at all associated with the WCFD interested in such an affair should email him at wcfd40th@ottawa.ca with contact information as well as former or current affiliation.

Perley and Rideau celebrates new affordable housing wing Sabine Gibbins

sabine.gibbins@metroland.com

EMC news –The Perley and Rideau Veterans’ Centre continues to grow its affordable housing options for seniors. The official opening of the first phase of 45 new affordable rental housing units for the facility’s Seniors Village was held on June 19. The project is a partnership between all three levels of government. There to mark the grand opening was Premier Kathleen Wynne, Alice Wong, Minister of State for seniors and Mayor Jim Watson. The hospital received $4.5 million in funding from the federal and provincial governments under the CanadaOntario Affordable Housing Program Agreement to create more housing for veterans and seniors living on low income.

One of the largest not-forprofit long-term care centres in Ontario, the centre has expanded its programs and services to create the Perley Rideau Seniors Village, which includes two buildings with 139 specially designed apartments, assisted living services for those in need at home or in the new apartments, respite care to help caregivers of family members with dementia, convalescent care, and various on-site health oriented services. “Our government is investing in affordable housing here in Ottawa, to help create jobs and improve the quality of life of our seniors,” said Minister Wong. Wynne said putting seniors first is a priority for the Ontario government. “It is part of our proud history, but it is also an essential factor in our collective vision for the future,” she said.

“As Ontario grows, as our population ages, we have a responsibility to continue to care for one another, To keep pushing ourselves to adapt to the needs of our communities. We must find ways to offer people the lifestyle they deserve and the attention they require. And that’s why this new Seniors Village is so important.” With the passing of the provincial budget, she said, it means they can move forward with their plan to invest $260 million this year in home and community care across Ontario. “That’s an unprecedented investment, but it is absolutely necessary if we are to adapt to the shifting demographics we see in our communities,” Wynne added. She mentioned the government would continue with their Action Plan for Seniors,

SABINE GIBBINS/METROLAND

Community and political leaders celebrate the official opening of the new affordable housing wing at the Perley and Rideau Veterans’ Centre on June 19. which provides coverage for prescription drugs, in order to ease the financial strains many confront. The federal and provincial funding is balanced by more than $1 million in municipal financial incentives and by a $32-million mortgage from Infrastructure Ontario.

The Perley and Rideau Veterans’ Health Centre provides quality care for seniors, serving veterans and an increasing number of other seniors from the community. Ottawa South MP David McGuinty called the moment a proud one for seniors and veterans across Ottawa and the

Business Directory

province. “This really does show how we can cooperate across all levels of government,” he said. “It was the right thing to do. It’s exactly the type of model we need to replicate over and over again. McGuinty said he hoped to see more of an engaging discussion take place on this topic. “It’s not like we need fewer (long-term care facilities),” he said. In the future, McGuinty added, they need to ensure the right tax incentives are put in place for seniors, and be able to provide seniors with more options – long-term care versus private home care, for instance, decisions families struggle with as their loved ones grow older and require round-the-clock assistance. “This is a good moment to be inspired by Perley and Rideau,” he said.

Patience is necessary this week, Aries. Without it, you will grow frustrated quickly over the course of several days. Relax and make the most of the situation. Expect to feel energetic and enthusiastic this week, Taurus. You may not know the source of all this energy and optimism, but that’s irrelevant as long as you enjoy these feelings. You may be feeling a little psychic lately, Gemini. Give your insights the benefit of the doubt and try to understand the message that is being conveyed. Some intellectual conversation has you aiming for bigger and better things, Cancer. You may start a few creative projects as a result of these discussions. Leo, don’t be surprised if some changes regarding your career come your way this week. A raise, promotion or a new job may be on the horizon. Embrace these changes. Virgo, a release of tension is just what you need. You may find that something that has been restricting you and holding you back disappears in a few days.

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!

Libra, sheer luck that brings strange and wonderful things is in the big picture this week. The things that you have been wishing or dreaming of just may come true. Scorpio, a business or romantic partner brings good news your way. This news erases a funk that you have been in. The news may help you resume a goal you had abandoned. Sagittarius, don’t worry about an upcoming doctor’s visit. You may just get a clean bill of health from your doctor this week. This will definitely ease up some stress. You are full of creative energy, Capricorn, and must turn it into projects that may help you to earn some money in the near future. Get started while you are motivated. Expect some news that sheds light on a difficult issue that you have been trying to resolve, Aquarius. You may feel so relieved that a celebration is in order. Exciting changes are coming, and they all center around you, Pisces. It may be embarrassing being the center of attention, but try to enjoy it.
