two years ago from prostate cancer at the age of 51. Although it was his wish to die at home, that proved impossible due to the need for around-the-clock care. “I felt fortunate, that when the time did come, May Court had a bed avail-

able for him,” said Sterling, who lives in Richmond and has organized a fundraising golf tournament for the hospice for the past three years. “The compassionate care he received, as well as the kids and I, left a lasting impression with me.” His final six days were spent at the Hospice at May Court, located in the Glebe.

“Unfortunately for the kids and I, we lost a loving, wonderful husband and father. We miss him every day,” said Sterling. “This was a devastating time in our lives but to have our loved one cared for. ... in his final days gave us great comfort. ”

“We were allowed to be his wife and children without the stress of his daily care. But most importantly, Lennox was allowed to die with dignity,” said Sterling. Lennox spoke about her family’s experiences at an event to launch a new hospice in Kanata last week. 10-BED HOSPICE

Hospice Care Ottawa, which operates the May Court and Friends of Hospice Ottawa, took possession of the key to the former Trinity Presbyterian Church on McCurdy Drive in Katimavik on June 27. The or-

ganization is planning to add a 10-bed residential and day hospice on the grounds by 2016. The Kourier-Standard first wrote about the purchase in April. With the new building, Hospice Care Ottawa will be able to “provide more services and end-of-life care for people who need it,” said Lisa Sullivan, executive director. “We’re just thrilled.” There is a need for 60 to 80 hospice beds to serve the Ottawa-Carleton region. Currently, there are nine beds available at May Court, and Friends of Hospice Ottawa has four temporary beds at Embassy West Seniors Living, with a total of 10 beds to be available this

summer. The organization is working to raise the $6-million needed to open the residential hospice. To date, around $1.7 million has been collected. This is a project where the community has come together to support the community, said Dr. José Pereira, professor and head of the palliative care division at the University of Ottawa, and medical chief of palliative medicine at the Bruyère Continuing Care and Ottawa hospitals. “I think this has been an amazing process.” For more information, or to donate, visit en/hospice-ottawa-west-campaign.

Firefighters hooked into Amber Alert News - The Ontario Amber Alert program has partnered with Ottawa’s firefighters. The arrangement between Ottawa Fire Services and police will assist the OPP and other partners to quickly locate children who are missing or who may have been abducted. Now, Ottawa fire’s communication centre will alert firefighters that an Amber Alert is in progress. Ottawa Fire Services has more than 1,500 personnel who will now receive Amber Alert notifications, which can only increase the likelihood of locating missing or abducted children. “Through our network of 45 fire stations spread over an area of over 2,758 square ki-


lometers, we are pleased to become part of the team that will work toward locating abducted children and make our communities safer,” Ottawa fire Chief John deHooge said in a press release. The OPP facilitates the Ontario Amber Alert program under the direction of the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services, and collaborates with partners across the province to locate children who are abducted in Ontario.

Katimavik student wins national contest French essay on Canadian freedom takes first place Jessica Cunha

Community - A Katimavik student took top honours in a national French writing competition. Grade 8 Katimavik Elementary School student Ellen Li’s French essay on why Canada is a great place to live won first place in the Passages to Canada inaugural Write and Make Art! Challenge from the Historica-

Dominion Institute, which asked students in grades 1 to 12 to explore themes of immigration, diversity, identity and racism in Canada. “I wrote about the freedom of Canadians,” said Ellen, who will be attending Colonel By Secondary School next year in its advanced academics program. “As Canadians, we have lots of freedom. We have the ability of free choice … we have things other countries don’t have.” Ellen was born in Canada, but her mother, father and sisters emigrated from China. Ellen said she’s visited China a number of times. “It’s really hot, there are lots of people and it’s really loud,” she said. Her teacher, Chantale Hart, gath-

ered all the teachers and Grade 8 students in the band room to announce the win. Hart said she started reading from the winning essay and it took Ellen a few sentences to realize it was hers. “I was more shocked than anything,” said Ellen of her win. “At first I didn’t think it was (mine).” “She wrote a really nice essay,” said Hart of her student. “I was … very excited, very proud.” Hart said she didn’t edit any of the work her students submitted, preferring to keep the original essays as is. “It’s the message that’s important,” said Hart. Ellen received an iPad as her prize for first place. “The compelling pieces that we received in the challenge’s first year, show just how much youth in Canada have to say about immigration and multiculturalism in their communities,” said Anthony Wilson-Smith, president of The Historica-Dominion Institute in a release. “We are thrilled to share the work of this new generation of artists and storytellers.” Close to 200 entries were submitted and six national winners were selected from across the country. Passages to Canada offers people the opportunity to share stories of their heritage and identity with schools and community groups. A

West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry and Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson host a meeting on the urban boundary expansion on June 26. More than 150 residents packed into the hall at St. John’s Anglican Church to hear about the plans.


News - A new residential community planned along March Road as part of the urban boundary expansion is anticipating about 3,000 residential units and 8,000 people, according to the project manager. Murray Chown, project manager with Novatech Engineering working on the housing project, said the minimum density for the area is 34 units per net residential hectare. This does not include space set aside for infrastructure, parks, schools or commercial structures. “It’ll be a community unto itself,” he said. The Fairwinds project in west Kanata is similar in density to the planned community, he said. It was standing room only as more than 150 residents packed into the hall at St. John’s Anglican Church on June 26 to hear about plans for expanding the urban boundary up March Road. Currently, the area is part of the West Carleton-March ward, but will be added to Kanata North once it’s complete. The earliest construction could start is sometime in 2016, said Chown. Many rural residents who will border the new urban development wanted assurances they wouldn’t be staring at the sides of other houses, while those living in residential communities, such as Brookside, want to ensure they keep a natural buffer between their communities. “I don’t want to look out of the back of my house and see a wall of vinyl siding,”

said Ryan Ross, who lives in Marchbrook Circle, which will border the new development. “I don’t want light pollution and I don’t want sound pollution.” Julia Hunt, who lives in Brookside, wants to see the row of trees behind her house protected with a buffer.

phase of planning and more public meetings will be held as it progresses. The project team will conduct technical studies on traffic, stormwater management and land use concepts over the summer, said Chown. There is the potential for two new schools in the area, he added, saying the team will reach out to all four school boards to see if there is an interest. Another public meeting will be held in the fall or winter to discuss the technical findings and start looking at concepts with residents, he said. “We’ll start to talk about options,” Chown said. “We have to plan the entire community.” Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson said nothing can be done about the density, but the public will have the opportunity to discuss plans about how that density could be spread out. “Try to think about how to make a nice community,” she said. “Come up with such a great plan that you want to live there.” Judy Makin, president of the March Rural Community Association, who sits on a community advisory board for the urban expansion, said the groups will represent the views of area residents over the course of the planning process. “Where we’re at right now is to make the best community we can,” she said. “We will represent your views.” More information can be seen online at KanataNorth. Comments can be submitted to city planner Wendy Tse through email, or by phone at 613-580-2424 ext. 12585.

Local acts make Bluesfest great


ttawa is spoiled for festivals each summer. Dragon Boats hit the waters of Mooney’s Bay. Jazz drifts through down-

town. Countless other events draw people each weekend, with Canada Day leading the way. On LeBreton Flats, blues – and an amalgam of other sounds – draws thousands of Ottawans and visitors to this city. We’re lucky to live in a city that hosts the second largest blues festival in North America (Chicago holds top spot). While the headline acts at Bluesfest garner the most attention, it’s local acts that make up the majority of the entertainment. They may play earlier in the day than B.B. King or the Tragically Hip, but every one of the local musicians is really what makes Bluesfest work. Without the input of Ottawa artists, Bluesfest couldn’t fill multiple stages for the festival’s 10 days. The payoffs from this commitment to the local community are immeasurable. Not only does Ottawa get an economic boost as thousands of visitors arrive to take in the shows, the

local musicians get a chance to share their material with large crowds of music fans. For the Ottawa entertainers, there’s the added bonus of getting to open a stage for national and international stars they might never have the chance to meet at any other time. The RBC Ottawa Bluesfest always draws a few grumbles for straying from its blues roots, but the crowds that arrive each year suggest the lineups meet with mass approval. The growing list of genres that can be heard each year also means more and more local acts can try to snag an invitation to play. And every note – in some way – can be traced back to the blues, because it’s the root of almost every North American musical style. And because Bluesfest draws such large crowds, ticket prices can often be much more affordable than an arena show by one headlining act. Once you have a ticket for that famous act, you’re also able to arrive earlier or stay later to take in everything the music fest has to offer. Including all those local acts. If you’ve never spent a lazy Saturday or Sunday wandering between six musical stages, taking in unknown acts and finding real gems, you’ve been missing out. Grab your lawn chair and sunscreen. And have fun right here in Ottawa.


We’ll miss having our own man in Toronto


oo bad Dalton McGuinty had to leave politics in such an awkward way because he actually was a pretty good premier until things started to go a bit weird toward the end. It would be an exaggeration to say he will be impossible to replace, because his replacement seems to be doing all right so far. But in one respect, Kathleen Wynne cannot replace McGuinty. She is not from Ottawa. McGuinty is. That meant that for the 10 years McGuinty was premier we had a premier who knew that Ottawa existed. Knowing that Ottawa exists is not as easy as you might think. The government of Ontario resides in Toronto and Toronto is a needy place. Amplified by Toronto’s rather noisy media, the city’s needs are all too evident. To remember that Ottawa exists, it helps to be from here and come back on weekends. On those visits, a premier can leave behind Toronto’s traffic, its urban sprawl, its overcrowded schools and understaffed hospitals and notice our traffic, our urban sprawl, our overcrowded schools and our understaffed hospitals. No matter what is going on in the 416, the premier will be reminded of the Queensway,

Not to mention some of the things that make Ottawa unique, such as the presence of the federal government, its departments and agencies and the need to go through nine layers of government (it seems) before action can be taken on any problem. Born and raised in Ottawa, McGuinty couldn’t help but be aware of such things. Wynne is from Toronto. This doesn’t necessarily mean that she thinks all problems can be solved with latte. In fact, her instincts on the casino issue seem to be surer than McGuinty’s. While he was in power, it looked like we would get one downtown whether we wanted it or not.

and it began to appear that the Rideau Carleton Raceway might in fact survive. But being from Toronto, Wynne gets overexposed to all that Toronto stuff. Lately she has been musing about improving the provincial government’s relationship with the city. “I’ve prided myself and ourselves on being able to rebuild that relationship,� Wynne said, as reported by the Globe and Mail. “It pains me that it’s not as good as it maybe has been, and I hope that we’ll be able to rebuild those relationships.� This can hardly be seen as good news. Toronto’s municipal leadership being what it is, rebuilding those relationships is going to take most of the time the premier has available. It is also going to take a lot of money, given the rather expensive list of things Toronto needs – such as subways. And while that is going on, the rebuilding process with Toronto, what happens to Carling Avenue and the Queensway and OC Transpo? Not to mention light rail, which it sometimes seems we will never get. Would it help if Ottawa had a more colourful mayor? Not meaning any disrespect to Jim Watson, but his demeanour does not demand attention, it does not cry out to the provincial government that if Ottawa does not get what

it wants he will hold his breath until it does. Other Ontario cities have mayors that. So maybe Watson needs to develop a few rough edges, become colourful, learn how not to keep his temper in check. As soon as he does that, he becomes a problem and a problem needs to be solved. Right now, Watson is not a problem for Queen’s Park. That was OK when an Ottawa guy was premier. But now, Watson not being a problem means Ottawa is not a priority. Can Jim Watson learn how to become a problem? Maybe. You should never underestimate a politician.

Please don’t tell me what to do

N it.

o one likes to be told what to do. Kids get annoyed by it. Adults detest

And there are some, like me, who always do exactly the opposite of what we’re told. I like to think of it as a healthy disrespect for authority. It’s the main reason I went to journalism school. In fact, I believe queries about this should be on the journalism school application forms: “Do you have a healthy disrespect for authority?” “No? You may be applying for the wrong program.” “Yes? Automatic entry with full scholarship.” So much do I hate to be told what I “should” do that I even reject the little voice of authority in my own head. I’m sure I’m not alone in this. In fact, I realized recently that others among

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse you must have this handicap. Why else are we not all sipping Evian hourly, eating loads of veggies, exercising daily and basically just doing all the things we’re told we “should” do to lead healthy lives? Because rules are made to be broken. And I don’t know about you, but when that voice of authority speaks in my head, I just crave potato chips and dry rosé. I started my own fitness routine in early April. After working like a dog all winter, sitting at my desk, tipping the scale and living on a steady diet of cortisol spikes,

it was time to make a change. In the first month, I forced myself to meditate on the voices of my doctor, my husband, my mom, my business coach, and even my six-year-old: “You must exercise, sleep, eat well and get outside more.” It wasn’t working. At every moment of weakness – let’s say I was feeling too tired to work out one evening – I’d think about those authoritative voices and do something self-defeating like open a bottle of wine or take on a new magazine assignment. To override that inner

authority, rather than try to discipline myself enough to listen to that overbearing voice, I decided to try making the inner voice my friend. (After all, healthy disrespect for authority and unhealthy tendency to give into peer pressure often go hand-in-hand). Former church minister John Izzo writes about the importance of “mindfulness” in his book, The Five Secrets You Must Discover Before You Die. He recommends setting one goal at a time and keeping a reminder note in an obvious place like your pocket or wallet. I did this. My note says: “Your best body.” It’s a bit cryptic and people who do goal-setting exercises would probably criticize its vagueness. But the note is just a reminder, not the actual goal spelled out with all the blood, guts and determination it’s going

to take me to achieve it. So I carry this note around with me. And I take it out and I read it throughout the day. I’ve been doing this for eight weeks. It’s my pal. When I need to make any one of hundreds of decisions throughout the day, I take it out and read it. What’s the result? I’m working out two hours daily, eating healthier than ever, forgoing weekday wine. And the best part is I’ve lost 16 pounds, which is four pounds away from the goal I set for September. Skeptical? Well, here’s how being mindful works. The other day, after waking at 5 a.m. with a baby, running around all day doing errands, cooking food and typing articles, the boys’ two-hour round trip to swimming lessons had done me in. Any thoughts of getting in a workout were out of the question. Tired, more than hungry, all I wanted to

do was toss a grocery store pizza in the oven, drink a glass of wine and go to bed. But I happened to make a quick stop at my friend Kay’s place. She mentioned she was going to the gym after supper. I got home and took the note out of my pocket. I thrust the pizzas at my husband and said, “I need 30 minutes alone in the basement.” I put the TV on, stretched, got on my exercise bike and pedaled my butt off for 12 kilometres. By the time I got upstairs, the wine was open and the pizzas cooked. My carbcraving exhaustion gone, I showered, drank about a gallon of water, and then had a single piece of pizza and some spinach and edamame salad. Oh yeah, and a guiltfree glass of dry rosé – all because of that single, friendly voice that detests authority as much as me.

Federal funding aimed at human trafficking Jennifer McIntosh

News - The federal government hopes to have an impact on human trafficking in Ottawa. Rona Ambrose, the federal minister responsible for the status of women announced that $200,000 would be given to Persons Against the Crime of Trafficking in Humans Ottawa at a June 24 event at city hall. “This project will help to support the safety of women and girls in our nation’s capital,” Ambrose said. “Our government is taking action to protect the most vulnerable women in Canadian society. We are doing this through action plans, new laws and essential women’s projects.” Ambrose added the federal government recently launched a national action plan to combat human trafficking. To improve the safety of women and girls across Canada who are targeted for sexual exploitation. The money will fund a two-year study that aims to prevent trafficking through education and collaboration. PACT Ottawa, along with the Ottawa police and Crime Prevention Ottawa will be working together to compile the data. Consultations within the community will aim to find gaps in programs. Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches said there have been charges of human trafficking laid by the Ottawa police in the past and he supports the initiative because it will work with stakeholders to protect the city’s women and girls. “Our organization is committed to ending the victimization of women and girls that results from the crime of human trafficking,” said Christina Harrison, director of project imPACT for PACT Ottawa. “We are pleased to partner with the Status of Women Canada and local

agencies on this timely project, which will focus on vulnerable girls and young women from varied socio-economic backgrounds.” Insp. Uday Jaswal, who will be the lead on the project from the Ottawa police side, said it can be hard to identify trafficking victims because of under-reporting. “I think there’s also a wealth of information in the many agencies locally that provide support for victims of human trafficking, but they don’t often get a chance to collaborate,” he said. The project will be entitled Working Together: Engaging Communities to End Violence Against Women and Girls.

Resource centre celebrates past year Volunteers log more than 20,000 hours Jessica Cunha

News - The Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre celebrated its past year with an open house and scavenger hunt on June 24. Cathy Jordan, executive director of the centre, said four words really encompass the work completed over the 2012-13 year: partnership, community, commitment and passion. “We do it because we want to make a difference in people’s lives,” said Jordan. “Here at the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre, they are truly more than just words.” Volunteers donated more than 20,000 hours in the past year to programs in the communities of Kanata, Goulbourn and West Carleton said Jordan. “It really is a volunteer-positive environment,” said Laine Johnson, volunteer co-ordinator. “We really empower our volunteers to work directly with clients.” Johnson added volunteers can work in a variety of different capacities and aren’t relegated to “paper pushers.” The resource centre’s Bullying Prevention Program reached more than

5,500 students this past year. The antibullying initiative was established 13 years ago to positively impact children and youth through a school-based program. “Whatever the need is, you’re there to help,” said Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley, who has participated in some of the anti-bullying program’s past events. “I appreciate what you do.” REPORT

More than 100 people visited the centre to learn more about its programs and services, which are offered at lowor no-cost for children, youth, adults, parents and seniors. Some of the organization’s programs include community support and counselling services; a Violence Against Women program; a shelter for women and children; services for children, youth and families; and an Early Years Centre, which celebrated its 10th anniversary. “The annual review provides a bit of a glimpse,” said Jordan of the work accomplished over the past year. Going forward, the goal is to create a “vibrant, safe and healthy” community. Last year, the resource centre received $6,811,400 in funding from federal, provincial and municipal governments, donations, programming fees and other sources for its services. The centre’s Meals-on-Wheels

program delivered more than 24,000 meals. Volunteers provided more than 5,300 drives for seniors and adults with disabilities. The Early Years Centre had more than 25,400 visits by parents and children; 861 counselling sessions were provided through the Violence Against Women program, and 4,418 clients were seen by the general counselling team. More than 140 women and children received shelter through the centre’s Chrysalis House, a safe and secure shelter in Ottawa. “It is a place where a woman can go to protect herself and her children from violence and abuse,” said the report. However, 504 women and children had to be turned away last year due to a lack of space. Jordan thanked the volunteers and staff at the centre for their hard work

2013-14 board of directors News - Robert McGaraughty, chair of the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre board of directors, said the past year has been an active one. The board’s goal, which is composed entirely of volunteers, is “to guide this organization into the future,” he said. “Please don’t keep the great

work we do a secret … Tell your friends.” McGaraughty added that two vacancies had to be filled. The centre received 17 applications for the positions. The 2013-14 board of directors include: • Robert McGaraughty, chair • Johanna Lamarre, vice-chair

• Todd Sloan, vice-chair • Michael Merpaw, vice-chair • Shelley Bond, director • Eric Saemisch, director • Mary-Ann Rowan, director • Teisha Gaylard, director • Cathy Smithe, director • Cindy O’Leary, director • Trevor Kraus, director • Cathy Jordan, ex-officio member

Mary tries her hand at milking the cows


’m telling you, she’s too young,” Mother said. Father said he milked a cow the day he learned to walk. Mother said “that’s nonsense, and you know it.” Rarely did I have so much attention sent my way and I loved every minute of it. With four siblings, rarely was I singled out, but that day I was getting my share. The subject was if I was old enough to milk. Once a calf got to the cow stage, I lost interest in her and I had little desire to sit with my head on her belly and try to get milk into a pail. But Father said it was time I did my share like everyone else in the family. Needless to say I was never consulted as to how I felt about the issue. And so on a Saturday, Father put a three-legged stool at the rear end of the quietest cow in the cow byre, put a pail under her and without a word of instruction told me to go ahead and milk. The old cow turned her head in my direction and then back to chewing her cud. After watching my three brothers and sister do the milking often enough, I figured there wasn’t much to it. Well, I pulled and I tugged, and I spit on my hands and kept saying “sooo

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories Bossie.” Nothing worked. The brothers were real pros at the job. The barn cats lined up on the other side of the gutter and every so often a squirt of milk would be headed in their direction. Without fail, the milk went right into their opened mouths. But here was I who couldn’t even get a drop of milk into the pail. My arms ached right up to my shoulders and a couple times I almost fell off the three-legged stool. It was beyond me why the milk stool only had three legs in the first place. To add to my misery, it was fly season and the poor old cow kept swishing her tail trying to rid herself of the pests. With each swish, however, I took a lash square in the face. Mother was right -- I was too young for this job. But to convince

Father was another matter. First of all, I didn’t like the cow byre. It was full of cobwebs, the cows smelled differently from the horses and I wouldn’t put it past any one of them to give me a good kick, especially when I was engaged in something as personal as tugging at her private parts. Emerson, Everett and Earl were into the snickering and I knew it wouldn’t be long before I was into the tears. It was my beloved sister Audrey who finally came to my rescue. She finished milking her cows, the milk had been emptied into the cans, and came over to where I was sitting hunched over, still tugging away with absolutely not a drop to show for my efforts. “Let me try,” she said, and I gladly surrendered the stool. The milk spewed out on the first

try with Audrey. I blamed it on the cow. I thought I was doing exactly what my sister was doing, but it certainly wasn’t working for me. I was convinced the cow didn’t like me any more than I liked her. Audrey tried her best to show me how to milk. Nothing worked. Finally, she went up to Father who was at the far end of the cow byre. “Mary’s hands are too small,” she said. “And the cow’s too big,” I offered. Father ran his hand over my head. Even though it wasn’t near my nose, I could smell cow and milk off him, neither of which were my favourite odours. “Well, we’ll try again some other time,” he said. I was out of the barn before you could say “milk pail.” I ran to the house and told Mother I wanted to change my clothes. She knew exactly why. I bundled up what I had on in the barn and brought the whole pile down to the summer kitchen to wait for the Monday wash. I asked Mother for a pan of hot water and wash cloth and towel, which I hauled upstairs to the privacy of the bedroom. I washed every square inch of my body I could reach, but I

thought I could still smell the cow byre off my skin. I opened my sister Audrey’s drawer of the little wash stand we shared and took out her precious can of Lily of the Valley talcum powder and slathered it on with abandon. Then I put on clean clothes from the inside out. When we sat down for supper, my try at milking was never mentioned. I figured the brothers had been warned not to bring up the subject and I knew, without a doubt, my milking days were over, but only for the time being. Everyone had to pull their share back then and I knew the time would come when I would be led back into the cow byre and made stick at it until I could fill a milk pail like the brothers and Audrey. Not a word was spoken all during supper about how I had failed at a job that everyone worth his or her salt would be expected to do growing up on a farm long before modern milking machines did the job for you. Even Audrey, who guarded her belongings like a mother hen guarding her chicks, never said a word about how I smelled of Lily of the Valley.

613.831.3400 Kanata Kourier-Standard EMC - Thursday, July 4, 2013 15

Kanata’s Newest Chiropractors Kanata’s Family Chiropractic Centre has a long history of excellence in chiropractic care, with over 25 years worth of experience in treating local families. Established in 1987 by Drs. David Lovsin and Andrea Fefferman, F.C.C. quickly established its presence within the community and it continues to be committed to helping patients and their families achieve their maximum health potential. If you’ve visited the office in recent months you will not only have noticed a new look, but you will have also been introduced to some new faces - Drs. Lauren and Rodrigo Guerrero, who are both chiropractors, have recently joined the practice and are a welcome addition to the team at F.C.C. With the addition of Dr. Lauren and Dr. Rod, the clinic now has extended coverage spanning six days a week, making it even easier for you or a loved one to receive excellent care in times of need. Nestled within the heart of Kanata at the Kanata Medical Arts Building (99 Kakulu Rd.), the Family Chiropractic Centre conveniently offers chiropractic as well as registered massage therapy. Front: Lynda O’Connor, Bev Pauling, Dawn Egan, Doreen Gobby Back: Dr. David Lovsin, Alexandra Gaudreau, Dr. Rodrigo Guerrero, Dr. Lauren Guerrero

New Beginnings at F.C.C. As a three-year-old, donning a permanent smile and pigtails in her hair, little Lauren Burkett never would have imagined one day becoming a chiropractor and joining the practice of her mentors, Drs. Andrea Fefferman and Keith Mahoney. But after seeing just how chiropractic could help her to lead an active life, Lauren knew from an early age that she was meant to be a chiropractor.

Dr. David Lovsin, Dr. Lauren Guerrero, Dr. Rodrigo Guerrero

Although she doesn’t remember her first chiropractic adjustment, Dr. Lauren Guerrero fondly remembers the woman who not so subtly inspired her to become a chiropractor - Dr. Andrea Fefferman, who sadly succumbed after a long battle with ovarian cancer in October 2012. Andrea’s husband, Dr. Keith Mahoney entrusted his practice to Lauren in February, and since then she has continued in the legacy of her predecessors, providing excellent chiropractic care to local families. She and her Australian husband, Dr. Rodrigo Guerrero, met in Dallas at an international chiropractic conference and they maintained a very long distance relationship until June 2012, when they reunited in Australia. While there, Lauren and Rod welcomed their now nine month-old son before making the long journey back to Canada in January 2013. Going from +40°C to -40°C was certainly a shock to the couple’s system, particularly Dr. Rod who had never experienced those temperatures, but they have since acclimatized and are going strong as

Dr. Rod Dr. Lauren and their son Hayden

the Family Chiropractic Centre’s newest power couple. Dr. Lauren and Dr. Rod are very excited to be joining Dr. David Lovsin and the experienced team at F.C.C. and look forward to the potential of inspiring the next generation of patients and future chiropractors to achieving better health and wellness through chiropractic.

Rugby a safe sport for youth: Ottawa Indians Rugby Football Club team, rather, you belong to a rugby club and the social aspect for players, parents and spectators is fantastic.” Jane Howes is playing her second year of ruby and is the only girl on the U12 team. Jane insists on being part of the forward pack because she enjoys the close encounters and tackles. Jane’s father, Bob, is not overly concerned about major injury. He said the quality of coaching that the players receive calms any reservations a parent might have about his or her daughter playing in a contact sport with boys. Melissa Duff has been the Indians’ youth co-ordinator for the past six years. Despite the fact that she plays and coaches rugby herself and that she does not have children, Duff gives countless hours to organizing rugby for the youth age groups. She has seen the youth program grow from seven players in 2008 to over 100 players today. For the tournament, Melissa and her volunteers organized raffle tables, 50/50 draws, and refreshments for the participants. She also ensured that a professional physiotherapist was on hand in case of player injury. There are no restrictive geographical areas for rugby but the Indians teams primarily are made up of boys and girls from Stittsville, Kanata, Richmond, West Carleton and other communities in the west end suburbs. The club welcomes new players to come out to Thursday night 6 p.m. practices at Holy Trinity High School in Kanata to either watch or even give it a go.

Ottawa Indians Rugby Football Club

Opinion - Rugby is a well-coached sport that emphasizes technique and safety, despite the sport’s reputation for aggressive play and potential injury. Matt Muzzi, one of four experienced coaches for the Ottawa Indians Rugby Football Club’s under-14 team, ensures players “walk through” tackling plays and rucks to teach them the correct and safe way to play the game. Contact and tackling at the U12 and U14 ages tends to be more about “pushing” and “wrapping opposing players up” rather than inflicting bone-crushing hits. Maintaining team possession of the ball and seeking advantageous field placement is the emphasis of games. “Parents are easy going, there is a great learning environment, and it’s a sport that any size or shape or sex can play - everyone touches the ball. It’s easier for kids to pick up rugby than other sports,” said Muzzi. “Get rid of the myth that rugby is a barbaric sport.” Andrew Armstrong, another of the four coaches for the Indian’s U14s, has played for Team Canada at an international level. Armstrong’s two boys are involved in different sports including competitive hockey. From his perspective, he feels that youth rugby is an appealing sport for many simple reasons. “The cost to play is low; the kids practice once or twice a week on a set night, there is a position for everyone to play no matter your size or shape. You don’t belong to a specific

Ottawa Valley Tours


Twin Elm Ruby Park was the site of the Ottawa Indians Rugby Football Club Youth Rugby Tournament on June 15. Eighteen teams from Ottawa, Kingston and Chelsea, Que. played in various age groups ranging from under six up to under 14. Unlike other sports, youth rugby tournaments don’t have champions or trophies. Instead, all play for the love of the game. The younger teams, from U6 to U10, played either flag or touch rugby with the coaches of the respective teams not only coaching, but refereeing and teaching the youngsters as they played. The games were 20 minutes long with five-minute breaks between halves. Six-year-old Ryan Kipping and his mother, Jody, made the trek from Kingston to participate. Asked what he liked most about rugby, the two year veteran stated, “It’s the blood and the sweat!” The U12 and U14 games were 30 minutes long. Ruby Canada restricts the number of minutes any individual child can


Eighteen teams from Ottawa, Kingston and Chelsea, Que. participated in the Ottawa Indians Rugby Football Club Youth Rugby Tournament at Twin Elms, near Richmond, on June 15. play in any one day. Because of this, the Indians’ tournaments started at 9 a.m. and was finished by 1:30 p.m. For many parents present, the balance of having

their children participate in a sport renowned for conditioning and team play while still having a portion of the day to do other things makes youth rugby very appealing.

Chinese support centre visits Stonehaven Retirement Residence Kanata Chinese Seniors Support Centre

News - The Kanata Chinese Seniors Support Centre organized a visit to the Chartwell Stonehaven Retirement Residence on June 12. This is an ongoing program that brings Chinese seniors who live in the Kanata area to visit seniors residences at least once a month. These visits serve many purposes, such as allowing the Chinese seniors to break out of their isolation. With their rich background in traditional cultural and folk dances, pugilistics, stretching exercises, calligraphy and painting, the Chinese seniors are able to showcase their multiple talents during these visits. This is an important aspect of the program as it helps to boost their self-esteem. The activities also help stimulate the mental health of both groups of seniors. The Chinese seniors are actively learning how to speak English and in time will be able to overcome their language barriers and mingle and bond with other seniors in the community. It would also enhance their smooth transition and integration into mainstream Canadian society. On this particular visit, the Kanata Chinese seniors lined up an exciting program for the residents, with powerful renditions of Chinese

traditional folk songs and cultural dances to loud applause. It was amazing to watch the dancers showcasing their graceful steps, all the while remembering to wear big smiles on their faces. The Taichi Ball demonstration by another senior was fascinating. All eyes were glued on her as she manoeuvred an ordinary rubber ball, on a hand-held table-tennis bat with a taut canvas centre, without it dropping onto the floor. The ever popular tai chi demonstration that consisted of 108 steps captivated everyone’s attention. Each movement was fluid and deliberate, yet they all packed a punch. On hand to showcase his deft calligraphy strokes was an accomplished artist, who wished the residents happiness written on a scroll. At the end of the performance, we had everyone on their feet to participate in an unique Chinese exercise called pai da cao that involved patting and slapping various parts of the body to stimulate the “qi”. “Qi” is a vital energy that courses throughout the body which keeps it healthy and invigorated. Participants wrapped up the visit with a simplified tea serving ceremony. There was also a special Taiwanese delicacy, pineapple pastries to accompany the tea.

Local youth to get business school Jennifer McIntosh

News - The Pinecrest-Queensway Community Health Centre is lending a hand to local youth. The centre is accepting applications for a program targeted at high school students in low-income neighbourhoods that offers entrepreneurial training. Matthew Teghtmeyer, who will be running the program for the Pinecrest-Queensway centre, said there are lots of entrepreneur programs targeted at youth aged 18 to 25, but nothing for the 14 to 19 age group. “It’s a great time, Teghtmeyer said of the teen years. “Because they should be starting their career planning and unless it’s (entrepreneurship) presented to them as an option it’s not going to be on their radar.” Teghtmeyer said the program was developed by the centre, who then reached out to Bayshore Shopping Centre, the Rotary Club of Nepean-Kanata, Invest Ottawa and Bridgehead for financial and in-kind donations. The first session starts July 9 and will run for the summer. It will last eight weeks and offer students lessons on developing a business plan, marketing and making presentations.

“There will be talks from local entrepreneurs who will give them an in-depth look at what it means to start your own business,” Teghtmeyer said. Each session will have a 12-student capacity. Youth are encouraged to apply through the PQCHC youth employment Facebook page or by calling the centre at 613-820-4922. “We developed the program because there is a lack of employment for youth,” Teghtmeyer said. “We are primarily looking for west-end applicants because that’s our catchment, but any youth living in a low-income neighbourhood can apply.” The students will also get a chance to tour Bridgehead’s main roasting centre on Preston Road and enjoy a coffee and chocolate tasting seminar while listening to tips on business acumen. At the close of the course, graduating students will get a $100 gift certificate to Bayshore and will be encouraged to apply for the summer company grants offered by Invest Ottawa. The second session of the program will last 12 weeks and start in the fall, with a winter session starting in January. “The youth should learn a lot and have fun while they’re doing it,” Teghtmeyer said.

How much driveway is just right? Tell us what you think!

Michelle Nash

City Planning staff are working on an amendment to the Zoning By-law that will make it easier to build a wider driveway in existing communities outside the Greenbelt. The study on Residential Driveway and Parking Regulations in Outer Suburban Neighbourhoods will explore options to allow property owners to enjoy the convenience of side-by-side parking. You have an opportunity to complete a short survey on the City of Ottawa’s website. The survey will illustrate what the current rules allow and several alternative options. The survey can be accessed at through August 16. Please take this opportunity to tell us what you think about this issue and the impact on your community.

News - New Edinburgh’s annual festival of light will showcase a number of Ottawa’s visual, music, film and circus artists this year. The New Edinburgh Community and Arts Centre announced the lineup for the 2013 Ottawa Lumière Festival on June 25. The organization promises a three week-long festival full of activities fit for the whole family. “Lumière is not your typical static audience experience,” said Melanie Davis, executive and creative director of the centre. “Lumière embraces all different types of artistic expression, inviting artists from all over the National Capital Region to come together and collaborate through photography, film, performance and visual arts and create something unprecedented.” Professional fire dancer Sophie Latreille, who will perform along-side her Mini Cirque/Fire Weavers troop for her 10th year, loves the participation and enthusiasm at the festival. “I absolutely love the Lumière Festival,” Latreille said. “There is a special ambiance there. It really is magical.” The festival is presented each year by the New Edinburgh centre and celebrates creativity and light. Among the activities which will be returning this year are the lantern workshops, a photography marathon challenge, story telling, fire dancing and circus arts. There will also be a lantern labyrinth, which invites festival patrons can silently walk through 600 candle lanterns that will be arranged in an ancient labyrinth pattern known as the “seven circuit labyrinth,” a pattern which dates back

more than 4,000 years to ancient Crete. More than a dozen artists will perform during the Evening of Light. Davis said the festival invites participation, exploration and celebrates everyone’s creative spirit. “Lumière tears down the fourth wall and provides a dynamic creative experience for everyone,” she said. The event is pay-what-you-can. For more information about the festival or to view its full schedule please visit THE LINEUP

The line-up for the 2013 Evening of Light will feature the following Ottawa-area artists: • Canada China Art Association - Ethnic Chinese dance and traditional Chinese music • Cultural Horizons - Indian dance, music & story-telling • Giant Seagulls • Gillian Kirkland - accordion and story-telling • Gitana Georgia and Istvan Betyar - fire and flamenco • Jean-Guy Beaudry - unicycle, juggling, fire • Maccie Paquette • Mike Essoudry’s Mash Potato Mashers mobile dance riot • Mini Cirque/Fire Weavers - fire spinning/ hooping/acrobatics • Pirates - pirate story-telling and music • Samba Ottawa - percussion • Success Lion Dance • Whimsimole (Emily Soussana and company) - dance and music

Zombies were spotted wandering the grounds of the Ottawa Hospital’s General campus last week in celebration of the newest addition to this year’s Rattle Me Bones race – a five kilometre Zombie Crossbone event.

Zombies a no-brainer for Rattle Me Bones race

News – On your mark, get set – brains! Back for its 20th anniversary edition, Rattle Me Bones will look a little differently this year. The Ottawa Hospital’s iconic road race, to take place at the General Campus on Oct. 27, features a 10 kilometre Wishbone, five kilometre Funnybone, two kilometre T-Bone, and one kilometre Jigglebone races. The event takes place on the trails behind the campus, and was officially launched on June 26. Those who are brave enough to take on the five kilometre Zombie Crossbone, however, will find themselves running for their lives in an off-road setting just north of the hospital’s grounds. All entrants will have something zombies want – not brains, as the undead usually pursue, but flags. During the past 19 years, Rattle Me Bones has raised $1,026,615 in support of The Ottawa Hospital. Proceeds from this year’s races will go towards bone cancer research.

Coming Soon: THIRD FLOOR A Rom-Com with a Thriller Twist! July 5 – August 3

“This event may be fun, but it raises some serious funds for a very serious cause,” said Kent Woodhall, race director and senior clinical director for perioperative and regional cancer programs at The Ottawa Hospital. Every year, more than 2,000 people participate in Rattle Me Bones, which has raised more than $1 million in 19 years in support of The Ottawa Hospital. This year’s race will be held in support of bone cancer research. Organizers are hoping to raise a record total this year. “These funds can potentially help researchers at the hospital make valuable discoveries that will change the course of bone cancer diagnoses,” said Ottawa Hospital surgeon Dr. Joel Werier. All registrants will get the classic long-sleeved cotton T-shirt, but this year, entrants have a chance to earn an additional long-sleeved technical running jersey. If participants raise more than $50, they will get a free shirt. When competitors raise $175, they will refund the price of the race fee. For more information on the race or to register, visit

Planners look to define ‘character’ Laura Mueller


Sandwich philanthropists Grades 5 and 6 students from Holy Redeemer Catholic School made more than 470 sandwiches for Shepherds of Good Hope on June 19 as part of a social justice learning experience. Students in Kim Iszak’s and Ian Fischer’s classes brought in all the ingredients and worked in groups of six making the sandwiches.

News - City planners are having a tough time trying to describe in enforceable language a home that doesn’t fit the neighbourhood’s character. The city had one big win when it defended its infill design guidelines at the Ontario Municipal Board earlier this year, said city planner Elizabeth Desmarais, when the board ruled the city does have the right to regulate character. “Most importantly, the board indicated that when we speak about neighbourhood character, what we’re really talking about is the look as we go along the street,” Desmarais told the planning committee on June 25. But the OMB sent the city back to the drawing board on a number of issues related to how the city could enforce the rules it created to try and prevent homes from being built that are grossly incompatible with the neighbourhood. Since then, Desmarais and her fellow planners have been scrambling to document what factors contribute to creating “character” in different communities. So far, they have

looked at 500 lots, but they need more time to finish up that research and write a bylaw that could legally enforce it. “We’re dealing with new things here. We actually need to define the word ‘character,’” Desmarais said. Staff is looking at factors such as how far back from the street the homes are built, the positioning of walkways, the elevation of the ground a home is built on top of and the location and distance between driveways, as well as the type of parking facility. The OMB was also displeased that the city’s rules were only proposed to apply to new homes and not additions on existing homes. The changes will be much broader than anticipated, said planning lawyer Murray Chown, who spoke to the planning committee on June 25. In an unusual move, Chown, who is usually an advocate for developers, joined forces with Hintonburg Community Association president Jeff Leiper to ask the city to consider consulting those who may be affected by the changes. “It may be unusual to see us together but we do have some common concerns,”

Chown said. “It sounds like the department is taking that opportunity of the direction from the board to go back and totally revamp the infill design guidelines bylaw … I don’t know whether that’s a good or bad thing.” Chown said developers and community advocates had thought the city would entertain a “dialogue” with them while they work out the fix. “It turns out that the fix is much bigger than any of us realized,” Chown said. “For the planners not to consult with the industry is mindboggling.” The planning committee approved the direction staff are taking with updating the infill design guidelines to fulfill the OMB’s orders, but the work is sure to go beyond the five-month deadline the OMB set for Aug. 8. The city’s planners and lawyers hope the OMB will provide more time if Ottawa can show it’s working hard to tackle the issues. After city council approves the rules, the city will head back to the OMB to argue whether the city has the jurisdiction to enforce the rewritten rules and whether the guidelines represent good land-use planning.

Art gallery’s summer exhibit all about fun

Arts - The Kanata Civic Art Gallery’s newest exhibit is all about fun. The “Just for Fun and Colour Me Kidsâ€? exhibit opened June 26 and runs until Aug. 29, featuring artists Amie Talbot and Patricia Brander. Talbot’s work will be featured for the month of July, while Brander takes over in August. Morgan’s Grant artist Talbot focuses on creating realistic pictures using coloured pencil. Her featured pieces include drawings of her daughters and portraits of other people. “It’s an eye opener,â€? she said of her work. “A lot of people don’t realize that coloured pencils can do the things that I do.â€? Her drawings resemble photographs, bringing emotion and a lifelike clarity to her pieces. She calls it contemporary realism. “I was amazed, blown away at how versatile, how expressive coloured pencils can be,â€? said Talbot, who’s been a member of the gallery for two years. “They’re so expressive and you never would have thought that.â€? She first got the idea to work in the medium after seeing another artist’s work in coloured pencils. Talbot has been honing her craft for eight years, finding time to draw in the early morning hours before going to work at her full-time job and late at night after her two children have been tucked into bed. “I make the time to do it,â€? she said. “It’s all about priority ‌ if you don’t make the time, you don’t do it.â€? Aside from her portraiture, Talbot also has collections of gravestones and cemetery statues, as well as

drawings of cars and antique radios. “It allows people to see what they gravitate towards,� she said. Many of her commissions come from people who see the drawings Talbot has done of her daughters. Talbot takes all of her own photographs for her pieces, and often sets up photo shoots with her clients in order to capture the perfect expression of her subjects. VERNISSAGE

Talbot will also be hosting a vernissage at the Kanata Civic Art Gallery on July 18. “It’s my first solo,� said Talbot. “I am excited.� The event will run from 6 to 8 p.m. and feature more than 40 pieces of her work. “Everything I have, I’m bringing here,� she said. There will be a DJ, refreshments, and the option to purchase on-site. “I want to bring awareness to

coloured pencils,� said Talbot. “It’s definitely an underdog medium.� COLOUR ME KIDS

Children’s artwork is also being showcased alongside the “Just For Fun� exhibit. The young artists had the option of choosing from two templates to colour or a blank page they could fill with their own art. “I think it’s important,� said Talbot about encouraging children’s creativity. “Nowadays, with technology people are pulling away from basic things like drawing and sketching.� Talbot designed the templates used in the “Colour Me Kids� exhibit. The Kanata Civic Art Gallery is located in the Mlacak Centre at 2500 Campeau Dr., and is open while the building undergoes construction. For more information and hours of operation, visit A temporary entrance is set up at the arena, to the left of the main doors.

Regulars at the Black Sheep Inn and Irene’s Pub, the four-piece band, known for the blistering vocals of Case Bronson, released their self-titled debut album at Irene’s Pub on April 27. They will also bring their unique brand of hard rock harmony to the Black Sheep stage at Bluesfest on July 13. “We are pretty excited to be playing Bluesfest,” Bronson said. “It’s kind of like the brass ring in Ottawa.” Coming off the release of their first album, Bronson said the band is pretty excited for what’s next. The album was produced by Jordan Zadorozny, who is known for working with the likes of Sam Roberts, Hole and Melissa Auf Der Maur. The members all bring something to the sound, whether it’s bassist and Nepean native Mark Sudiacal’s love of funk bands like the Red Hot Chili Peppers or Dave Nado’s love of heavy metal as evidenced in songs like Wanted Man or Love Like a Gun. “I like all kinds of stuff,” Bronson, a Hintonburg resident, said,

naming influences such as the Beatles, Rolling Stones and Queens of the Stone Age, off the top of his head, while the band prepared for a night out at the Jazz Festival to see the Doobie Brothers. Before they hit the stage at Bluesfest, the Wicked Mercy will play Sab Stock in Pembroke, opening for David Wilcox on July 7. They are also working on recording their own EP, which Bronson said they plan to offer for free. “We have learned a lot about recording over the last year so we’re going to give it a try,” he said. The guys are a tight knit group, making regular treks out to Pembroke to jam with drummer Cory Zadorozny. Bronson said songwriting used to come solely from his stuff, but said the band is evolving into a more organic process where everyone has a little bit of input. Plans for the future include branching out to shows in Toronto and Montreal and expanding their North American audience. “We have had offers almost daily to review our album from Hungary, Greece, Budapest, France and the U.K., but not a whole lot locally,” Nado said. But whatever happens, the music is a labour of love. There are three bands on Nado’s street in Centretown alone – includ-

Local band gets lucky with second Bluesfest gig Arts - Three Times Lucky, a homegrown band offering a folksy, blues rock sound, will hit the Barney Danson Theatre stage at Bluesfest on July 5. The five-piece band that rehearses at guitarist Dave Reid’s Barrhaven home will also join the likes of Colin James and Johnny Winter at the Calabogie Blues and Ribfest on Aug. 17. This is the second time Three Times Lucky will play Bluesfest. They played in 2011 following the release of their debut album Mojo Offa Muddy. Their second album, Down to Texas, was released in November 2012. The second album quickly moved up to 14th spot of Dawg FM’s top 20 CDs list. “It was an amazing thing to hear the song on the radio,” Reid said. The group formed in 2009, all of the members having abandoned thoughts of a rock star lifestyle in favour of careers and family. “I always kept playing music and once the kids were out of the house we all kind of

thought it would be good to get back into it,” Reid said. Larry Deszcz, a self-described travelling peddler by day, said it’s great to be able to play Bluesfest because of the chance to be side by side with some world-class musicians. “The side stages are where you get some of the real gems,” Reid said. “Some of them are really used to playing the blues circuit – like New Orleans, Memphis and Texas.”

not doing your job,’” Reid said. “For some reason people like to get up and dance to our stuff.” Reid handles most of the writing, but Deszcz said the band tends to jam things out and collaborate on the sound. “The first time I got a royalty cheque in the mail it was really something,” Reid said, adding that while it wasn’t much, he was happy to be getting paid to do what he loves.

The side stages are where you get some of the real gems ... Some of them are really used to playing the blues circuit – like New Orleans, Memphis and Texas. DAVE REID GUITARIST, THREE TIMES LUCKY

The band’s home clubs include Greenfields Pub and Eatery in Barrhaven, the Black Sheep Inn, Irene’s Pub and the Elmdale Tavern. Reid describes them as a Friday night bar band. “John Ryder (a prominent Australian musician) said to me once, ‘If you don’t have the ladies up dancing you’re

While the band doesn’t plan on doing a world tour, Reid said they are touring local festivals and hinted at a possible show in the city’s west end near the end of July. For more about the band and to hear some of the tunes from Down to Texas, visit www.

This little beetle is a highly destructive insect native to the Asian Continent. It was discovered in the Windsor/ Detroit corridor in 2002. It has since destroyed millions of trees. It was discovered in the City of Ottawa in 2008. Since that time the City of Ottawa, Leeds and Grenville have been quarantined and the movement of ash wood and wood products is prohibited. The City of Ottawa removed 800 affected trees in the winter of 2011. The handling of ash trees that have been affected by emerald ash borer can take special techniques. Gardiner Tree Trimming & Removal Ltd. strives to use the safest methods possible to remove dead and dangerous trees of all species. Our methods use equipment such as a crane, bucket or excavator as the job requires. Gardiner Tree Trimming & Removal Ltd. offers TreeAzin® Systemic Insecticide. It is an injectable insecticide formulated with azadirachtin, an extract of neem tree seeds (not neem oil). TreeAzin is registered by Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) (PCP 30559). Ontario’s Ministry of the Environment (MOE) scheduled TreeAzin® as a class 4 pesticide or “least hazardous that is

commercial”, with a class 11 active ingredient. TreeAzin is exempt from Ontario’s Cosmetic Pesticide Ban Act.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR: EAB is a slender, elongate insect about 1/3 - 1/2 inch long. It is widest just behind the head, gradually tapering back to the abdomen. It is a bright iridescent green to copper-green color, often with a copper colored area behind the head. Its body underneath the wings is a purplish-magenta color. Trees typically are killed in two to four years. When trees are first attacked by EABs, the symptoms are inconspicuous and hard to notice. By the end of the second year, thinning foliage and dieback in the crown begins to be

apparent. By the third year, there is severe dieback and little foliage. Ash can tolerate small numbers of EAB larvae but trees are girdled and killed when populations become more numerous. When the adults emerge, they create small, 1/8 inch D-shaped exit holes that are characteristic of this insect, although they can be hard to see. If you were to remove the bark on the trunk of a tree showing these symptoms, you should also find the larval galleries. Woodpecker attacks on ash could also indicate the presence of emerald ash borers.

Motown sound to hit River Stage this Bluesfest Michelle Nash

Arts - Fans of Motown artists, funk and rhythm and blues are in for a treat as an up-and-coming Ottawa band hits the River Stage this year at Bluesfest. The Hornettes feature Anna Stamatova and Irina Popova on vocals, Jeff deValk on guitar, Ryan Forsberg on bass, drummer Norman Hladik, and horn players Brady Leafloor and Ed Lister. Based mostly in the Glebe, the group performs at local pubs and bars such as Irene’s, Babylon, the Rainbow, Zaphod Beeblebrox, Maverick’s and The Ritual, but this summer the group will make the step up to the Royal Bank Bluesfest on July 7. “We are definitely very excited,� deValk said. “We expect the best bit to be being able to hang out backstage, meet other bands and hopefully find some new fans inside and outside Ottawa.� Although deValk has played the festival before in another band, this will be the first time The Hornettes will take the stage and the high-energy group promises a good time for all. “We try to one-up ourselves every time we play,� he said. “Energy is the one thing we strive for above

anything else, and we try to push ourselves and our audience.� Each show is full of music, dance and fun the group said. This latest gig at Bluesfest will be rounding out the band’s busy winter and spring, which has included sets across Ottawa and Gatineau almost every weekend, the completion of their brand new album and a performance at Jazzfest on June 29. DeValk said the band will be taking a much-deserved break after Bluesfest. MOTOWN

Hearing The Hornettes play is like getting thrown back in time. With its big band sound, the group likens itself to Motown artists and bands from the late ’50s and ’60s. The band met through online musician wanted ads three years ago, but since then, they say they have become very close. “We have become like a little family and being able to feed off the other members’ energy, as well as the audiences’, during our performances is definitely the best,� deValk said. The band cites their musical influences as the classic Motown artists such as Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight and Sly and the Family Stone, to name a few.


The Hornettes say they are ready to rock this year’s Bluesfest. The seven-member band will perform an energy-filled set on July 7 on the River Stage. The Hornettes are hoping lots of their fans come out to see them perform, but also encourage every

ticket holder to check out the River Stage that afternoon. “They’re all a bit different,� deValk said of the band’s shows. “There are little mistakes, intentional change ups, and funny ‘moments’ that make every show special. We do our best to keep things fresh by

Wild Vines climbing the Bluesfest ladder Brier Dodge


Arts - The Wild Vines were thrilled to find out they’d been accepted into the Bluesfest lineup. Getting scheduled the same night as country headliner Zac Brown Band was just the cherry on top. The Wild Vines is made up of singers Sarah-Jean McClurg from Constance Bay and Samantha Marie Timmins of Embrun, drummer Steph Boucher from Orléans, bass player Stefan Ferraro from Buckingham and guitarist Dan Deslauriers from Nepean. The group has played together, in different variations and combinations, for years, but became the Wild Vines two years ago.

Samantha Timmins and Sarah-Jean McClurg are the vocalists for the Wild Vines, who will play July 5 at Bluesfest. McClurg said the group has a “country-infused” sound, and dabble in rock and soul. “Our roots are country,” she said. “So when we write our songs and make our arrangements, we just kind of let it go where it needs to go.” So it was a perfect fit to find they would be playing on the Claridge Homes stage on July 5, the second night of the music festival. The Friday night show features the Zac Brown Band. “We really look up to them as far as their harmonies,” McClurg said. “They’re an influence, that’s for sure.” They found out in the winter that they were accepted to play at the Ottawa festival, but only found out when the general lineup came out exactly where they had been slotted. While the Wild Vines have played a variety of shows around Ottawa, including last year’s Metcalfe Fair and the upcoming Grassroots Women’s Festival, it’s the first time at Bluesfest. McClurg said they prefer events where they can perform their own songs, which are all written by band members.

Music is a full-time passion for band members, all of whom have taught music at some point at the music school McClurg owns. “We’re really involved with the kids that we teach and we hope we can mentor them,” she said. Many of their students will be coming out to Bluesfest to see their teachers on the local stage. In late 2012, the Wild Vines toured a little further away – throughout Europe, travelling to Holland, Germany and Italy. They will return in to even more countries next spring. McClurg said there are a surprisingly large number of country music fans in Europe, who showed up knowing The Wild Vines lyrics and ready to sing along. She’s hoping to get the same reception at home on the Bluesfest stage. “It’s a venue we’ve wanted to play for a long time,” she said. “We got the notification when we were on tour and it was a huge highlight.” For more information on The Wild Vines, visit They will be playing on the Claridge Homes stage on July 5 at 6 p.m. Didn’t get your

How to choose the pet that’s right for you lots of time for dog walks and playing in the park? Or do you live in an apartment building or in close proximity to others and therefore need a quite pet? • Consider your health: Does anyone in your family have allergies? If so, this will play a key role in your choice. • Cost: Before you bring a new pet home, make sure you’ve done your research and understand the cost of ongoing care. • Visit animal shelters to get an idea of the kind of dog or cat you’d like: Take your time and visit a few shelters to see what is available for adoption. You’ll be able to see the animals up close and get a better idea of their size and look than you would from a photo online. * Go with your gut: You’ll know whether it’s the right pet for you once

News - What could be better than introducing a furry, fluffy, loyal pal to your life? There’s no doubt that there are many benefits from owning a pet, but before you bring a dog or cat home, you want to make sure that your choice will fit in with you and your family. Here are a few tips for choosing the perfect pet: • Don’t make an impulse buy: Do your research and understand the type of care and commitment your potential pet will need. • Consider things such as whether the dog breed you want needs lots of exercise, otherwise it’ll create havoc in your home, or whether it’s a cat that needs less attention. • Consider your lifestyle and how a pet will fit in: Do you have a demanding career that means you won’t have

NCC gives up on interprovincial bridge fight Federal agency won’t spend more money to study new crossing after Ontario backs out Laura Mueller

It is the province that made the decision to pull the plug. RUSSELL MILLS NATIONAL CAPITAL COMMISSION CHAIRMAN

“It puts the pressure back onto the MTO and the province,” he said. “It’s clear now that the MTO needs to find a way to connect the 417 to the 400-series highway on the Quebec side, which is the 50.” Fleury said he sees a “political willingness” to address the truck issue now that the

The National Capital Commission announced it was scrapping the bridge study at its June 27 board meeting. province has flatly rejected a bridge. The local councillor requested a meeting with Transportation Minister Glenn Murray to discuss how the province plans to solve the truck issue. “The ball is in their court,” he said. On June 17, Murray announced that Ontario will not provide funding for a bridge proposal that would cross at Kettle Island and make use of the Aviation Parkway to connect bridge traffic with Highway 417. Murray said the province “listened very carefully” to the public. He said the Liberal caucus, including local MPP’s Madeleine Meilleur and Phil McNeely, were unanimous in turning down any involvement with the Kettle Island plan.

issue in the future, Fleury said “we’ll see.” Mills was not receptive to discussing the possibility of a tunnel to get trucks out of Ottawa’s core. “Unfortunately, there is no solution to the truck problem without a bridge,” Mills said. “To us now, it is unacceptable.” The NCC considered a tunnel at the very beginning of the interprovincial crossings study, but that idea was dismissed as too expensive and not feasible. More recently, Mayor Jim Watson and city councillors have revisited the possibility of looking at a tunnel for trucks.

Meilleur called the provincial decision a victory for residents. “My thanks go out to the community,” she said. “You were all there at every meeting.” Residents were concerned about the additional traffic the bridge would generate on the Airport Parkway, which representatives from the Montfort Hospital worried would slow down ambulances. Rideau-Rockcliffe Coun. Peter Clark represents residents in Manor Park who would have been most affected by a new bridge at Kettle Island. He said the NCC’s announcement shows that “reality is setting in.” As far as the NCC’s role in solving the truck

News - The National Capital Commission has pulled the plug on a proposed new bridge to Gatineau after spending six years and almost $7 million studying it. NCC chairman Russell Mills made the announcement at a June 27 board meeting, 10 days after the provincial government announced it would not support a bridge at the preferred location – Kettle Island – nor the other top two locations. “It is the province that made the decision to pull the plug,” Mills said. He said the NCC would have given up on the study earlier if it had been clear that the province never intended to support any of the top three routes that have been identified since 2009. The NCC and ministries of transportation for Ontario and Quebec had planned to jointly spend a total of $1.6 million dollars to finish up the study in the next month. The NCC’s half-million portion doesn’t represent significant savings, Mills said. Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury said the NCC stepping back further bolsters the Ministry of Transportation’s responsibility to address the issue of transport trucks travelling through his ward en route to Gatineau.

Lowertown protesters were successful last fall in preventing two homes on Sussex Drive from being demolished to make way for a wider road. On June 26, city council approved $1.2 million to move the homes farther back into their lot to make way for the wider road, including cycling lanes.

News - More than $1 million needed to move two Sussex Drive heritage homes was approved by city councillors, despite some objections. City council signed off on $1.2-million to pay to move the Lowertown home and a rowhouse along a curved section of Sussex Drive between Cathcart and Bolton streets back away from the road to ensure they won’t have to be demolished when it is widened over the next two years. During a planning committee meeting on June 25, Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley wondered why it was necessary to pay to move both houses back into the lot. “The houses themselves don’t have any special status,” he said. “So do we really need to move and pay for them?” The city’s heritage planner Sally Coutts said while the homes are not individually designated as having heritage value, they are part of Lowertown’s heritage conservation district. The two buildings have been deemed to have equal value and must be

moved in tandem if they are to retain the “street fabric,” she said. Nancy Miller-Chenier, head of the Lowertown Community Association’s heritage committee, said moving the homes diminishes their heritage value. Although the group fought to save the homes, it is hoping the city will change the road project so the homes don’t have to be touched. “The curve has been there since Colonel By laid out the road … (it is) part of the fabric, social history of the area,” MillerChenier said, “The only way to do that is to move them. There is no other option. I want you to understand that,” built heritage subcommittee chairwoman Coun. Jan Harder told Chenier. “The battle is won. “If it goes back to anything, it would be to demolishing them. I don’t want to see that happen,” Harder added. Miller-Chenier said she worries about possible damage or a partial collapse of the buildings during the move. Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais said the NCC should pay if it wants to re-do the road in a way that widens the boulevard.

“It’s funny that we’re picking up the tab for them to do something they want to do,” Blais said, noting the NCC isn’t willing to pitch in for projects the city undertakes that involve the federal agency. Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury said it’s “reasonable” to conclude that the city will pay to move the homes because it made the decision to save them. But he added that the city and NCC share many of the costs for the $31-million project and it was Ottawa’s turn to pick up the tab. Blais, Hubley and Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes dissented on the city council vote to approve the house-moving funds. Heritage consultant (and vice chairman of the city’s built-heritage subcommittee) Barry Padolsky’s company is preparing a study on how to move the homes, which will also determine how far back to move them. City officials have said the homes will retain their existing relationship to the street’s edge. The width of the road will widen by approximately two metres around the curve where the homes at 275-279 Sussex Dr. are located. Last year the National Capital Commission and the city had recommended the homes, one of which was home to former governor general Adrianne Clarkson during her childhood, be demolished as part of a plan to complete the NCC’s ceremonial route, Confederation Boulevard. The road project will involve widening the road in certain sections to accommodate cycling lanes in addition to the current four vehicle lanes. The city’s planning committee shocked even heritage advocates last October by unanimously rejecting the homes’ demolition. At the time, the NCC’s project manager, Richard Daigneault, said that option was considered, but removing the buildings wouldn’t have a significant enough impact to warrant the cost. The NCC argued that the rents charged to tenants in the buildings were not high enough to recoup that cost within a reasonable timeframe.

A controversial rezoning of this property at 9 Rosedale Ave. kicked off a process to rezone all properties along Colonel By Drive in Old Ottawa South to restrict density.

No fanfare for targeted rezonings Laura Mueller

News - Targeted rezonings the city undertook to ease community concerns were not met with universal support at planning committee on June 25. The first two rezonings proposed by the city’s newly minted zoning consistency team angered some residents and confused others. Carol Vranjes, who represents the owner of one property on Greenbank Road that was rezoned, called the exercise a waste of money for the city, even though her client will benefit financially. “I know the (height) increase is a benefit to us,” she said. “(But) this can still be challenged by developers … So what has really been accomplished with the work undertaken?” Attendance at meetings leading up to the rezoning of 171, 173 and 175 Greenbank Rd. was very low, Vranjes said, because there is no plan for development there so neighbours don’t see the issue as urgent. She urged the city to spend money on more pressing issues. The rezoning means those properties on Greenbank can be redeveloped with buildings of up to four storeys in height instead of three storeys. In response to concerns expressed by neighbours backing onto the site, the city boosted setbacks in the backyard to 10 metres instead of the usual 7.5 m. That bothered the Coptic church, which owns one of the properties and has expressed an interest in building a retirement home there. The Greenbank zoning study was instigated by the approval of a five-story, 61-unit apartment building nearby at Greenbank and Craig Henry Drive. The focused zoning study for 171, 173 and 175 Greenbank Rd. will set the stage for a larger discussion about the potential for denser development along arterial roads as the city updates its Official Plan. Similarly, residents expressed concerns about changes to zoning for lots along Col-

onel By Drive in Old Ottawa South. Barry Hobin, a well-known local architect and owner of one of the 39 affected properties, said he was completely unaware of the proposal to limit development potential on his lot. “I have had no notice whatsoever of this event. I happened to find out by accident,” he said. “If you’re going to rezone my property, I would expect the notice.” The changes would limit new buildings to nine metres heigh instead of the current 11-m limit. Most of the homes in the area are around 7.5 m tall, but some new homes are taller. The changes also impose a heritage overlay, which restricts some redevelopment, including the size of additions on the rear of homes. “This is essentially a community that was willing to impose restrictions on itself,” Capital Coun. David Chernushenko said. Chernushenko was surprised to hear some residents were unaware of the zoning study. He said he personally delivered flyers to each home and included it in his newsletters and on his website, and there were public meetings and media coverage of the issue. In the report to planning committee, Chernushenko is quoted saying the process

represents “a model of community involvement.” Hobin said he didn’t understand why the city would change the rules now, given that a number of new homes that don’t conform to the new rules have already been built along the canal. The planning committee approved a “grace period” until September 2014 for existing applications that have been filed to develop properties under the old zoning. That seemed to satisfy planning lawyer January Cohen, who told the committee her client had already applied for a building permit after buying a lot at the corner of Leonard Street a few weeks ago. Her client was unaware of any potential changes to the zoning, Cohen said. “We do take issue with the notice,” she said. “There were a series of meetings with a select group … and then there were public meetings.” Cohen was referring to a working group of a small group of affected residents who met regularly to discuss the zoning with Nancy Meloshe, the planning consultant hired by the city. Meloshe presented options and preferred changes at a public meeting for all residents.

Raise a future guide dog in your home News - Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind is seeking volunteers to provide loving homes for future guide dogs and assistance dogs. The volunteer position is called “puppy walking”, but walking is only one element of the program. To be a puppy walker, you must be home most of the day or obtain permission to take the pup or dog to work with you. You require access to a vehicle to attend veterinary appointments and training sessions. This is a 12- to 18-month commitment, raising and training the dog in your home, with the expectation for daily long walks in all weather conditions.Your role is to raise a good dog until it is ready to enter into formal training at the National Training Centre of Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind in Manotick, Ontario, at which time you must be prepared to give up the dog, so that it may continue its journey as a guide dog or assistance dog.

City scraps payoffs for reduced parking Community groups say a citywide parking strategy is needed Laura Mueller

News - It’s better to scrap a broken policy that lets developers pay their way out of parking requirements than try to fix it, the city’s planning committee decided. The policy was ditched with little fanfare during a June 25 meeting, but one citizen who spoke to the committee said community associations have a deep interest in the issue and would have rather seen a proposal to fix the policy. Daniel Mullaly from the Centretown Citizens Community

Association said if the process is broken, the city should fix it. “This policy has been mismanaged for an extended period of time,” he said. “But CCCA thinks that abolishing it is not the solution … We are left without a policy or strategy to deal with a significant community issue.” The CCCA and other community associations in Hintonburg, Westboro, Old Ottawa South and the Glebe discussed the need to a comprehensive parking strategy for the city, Mullaly said. Planning committee chairman Pe-

ter Hume, councillor for Alta Vista Ward, insisted the change doesn’t mean people will have a “free pass” to avoid providing parking. The old policy required property owners and developers to pay a fee in exchange for a reduction in the parking they are required to provide in cases where there are restraints on the owner’s ability to provide parking. It’s only supposed to be used in cases where it is “clearly demonstrated” that the requirements would result in an over-supply of parking. The city would ostensibly use the money to build public parking facilities, but the

report notes the amount of money collected will likely never be enough to replace the total number of spaces in the communities where they are needed. In fact, a rule that the fee could be waived for community housing developments has been extended to all applicants who make a case to planning committee that providing parking will cause them “undo hardship.” The city collects an average of $125,000 a year from the bylaw. The new process will require relief from parking requirements to be sought through a rezoning or minor variance request. Planning manager John Smit said those options are more robust because they require more scrutiny and they can also be appealed – something the current policy lacks. Mullaly said community groups have been waiting for improvements

to cash-in-lieu of parking for five years, but were none the wiser when the report was quietly added to the planning committee’s agenda with no prior community consultation. He said the city could have drawn the same conclusion four years ago when community groups were first made aware of the study and commented on it. Four public meetings were held in January and December of 2009. The remaining $3.7 million in the cash-in-lieu of parking fund will likely be used to build an $8-million parking garage in the Glebe and development or redevelopment of smaller on- and off-street parking facilities. There is still the possibility the city could create localized cash-inlieu of parking bylaws if a local parking study recommends it. Since amalgamation, the city has exempted property owners from providing 1,300 parking spaces. Over that time, the city received 214 applications for cash-in-lieu of parking, of which 180 have been processed, of which only two have been refused. The city has used the money to provide parking at the adult high school on Preston Street, to create a taxi stand on Rideau Street, to replace some on- and off-street parking facilities and to fund studies on parking management for south Ottawa and Westboro and a tour bus strategy. It costs about $7,000 to build an on-street parking space, $25,000 per space to build a parking structure and about $40,000 per space to create parking in an underground garage. The old bylaw has been in effect since 1986 in Ottawa, 1984 in Vanier and 1995 in Rideau Township.

Committee rejects Attika tower Plans for 18-storey building sure to be fought at the Ontario Municipal Board Laura Mueller

News - Councillors admitted the city got it wrong as they voted down a proposal for an-18-storey tower to rise above the Parkdale Market. In a rare move, planning committee rejected Tega Homes’ plans for its Attika condo on June 25, but the decision means the battle is sure to continue in an appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board. Taking that route is “not without significant risk,” said planning committee chairman Peter Hume, the councillor for Alta Vista Ward. The OMB might end up granting the extra

the zoning change – not in the context of the CDP. “Hindsight is wonderful,” Hume said. “We should have, at the time, taken a much closer look at what we were designating on the site … Obviously we can’t sustain that position.” Jeff Leiper, president of the Hintonburg Community Association, called the saga a “spectacular failure of leadership.” He said community design plans matter to community associations like his, and urged the committee to deny the rezoning request in order to “salvage trust in the CDP process.” The city’s own staff couldn’t defend the eight-storey mandate in the CDP. Faced with an idea for a taller building that still contained the same amount of floor space as a shorter, blockier structure, planning staff sided with the 18-storey proposal and recommended the planning commit-

height for the property at 233 Armstrong St. and 3 Hamilton Ave., or it could decide to hold Tega to the eightstorey height limit spelled out in a community design plan for the area. Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs represents the area and asked her colleagues to refuse Tega’s application for the 239-unit building. “To my mind and the minds of my community… what is of absolute importance here is the CDP,” she said. “When we forge those covenants with the community, we give them that surety.” Although Tega’s initial plans for a 36-storey tower wrapping around the Carleton Tavern arrived at city hall before the community design plan was complete, the CDP policies probably weren’t the right fit, Hume said. The proposal had to be considered in the context of the policies that were in effect when Tega applied for

base, stepping back and up to a narrow peak. “It steps in considerably as the building sculpts itself up.” John Fraser, a resident of Spencer Street, pointed out to the committee that there were no setbacks designed for the side of the building that would face his home. Fraser said he was “boggled” as to why the committee was even considering the proposal, given that a legal opinion from city lawyer Tim Marc indicated he did not believe the OMB would uphold an 18-storey height for that site. Others were concerned about the amount of parking that was proposed. The property’s soil is contaminated and the developer would have to remove much of it anyways, so a parking garage was planned for seven storeys underground. That’s simply too much parking for an urban area like Hintonburg, said resident Linda Hoad. Smit said there is a high demand for parking in the area, especially because of its proximity to the Parkdale Market, so the addition of more publically accessible parking spaces is a good thing.

News - The Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa received a Fire Safety Award from the Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council at a ceremony on June 12 in Toronto. The annual Fire Safety Awards recognize outstanding contributions to fire protection and prevention in Ontario. Data from the Office of the Fire Marshal show that a number of fire fatalities occur among children who were receiving services from a child welfare agency. To help address this issue, the Ontario Association of Children’s Aid Societies developed Fire Safety and Prevention - A Resource Guide for Child Welfare Professionals. Based on this resource guide, the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa, with the support of the Ottawa fire department, delivered training sessions to their entire staff of field workers and incorporated a fire safety component into their home assessments. During their assessments, CAS field workers ask the caregivers to check all of the smoke alarms in the home. If there is a problem with an alarm, the CAS worker corrects the situation before leaving or leaves a loaner smoke alarm. Ottawa fire then follows up and make sure the smoke alarm issue properly corrected. “Thanks to the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa and the Ottawa Fire Services, vulnerable children and families are protected by working smoke alarms,” said Ted Wieclawek, Ontario fire marshal. “The resource guide is important because caregivers are provided with education about the importance of smoke alarms.”

News - Michael Palin may be a comedy icon for people over 40 or 50, but he’s a virtual unknown among today’s teens, unless they have a thirst for travel documentaries. The former Python dropped in on Grade 7 geography students at Longfields-Davidson Heights Secondary School on June 26, where the kids had only a vague idea about the day’s keynote speaker. As they awaited his arrival, one student said they know Palin “travels a lot” and another said he’s “meant to be funny.”

I’ve been to some of the poorest parts of the world, and seeing how people live and raise their children; it’s quite inspiring. Michael Palin

It shouldn’t be a surprise, given his knack for entertaining, that Palin connected with the kids. All it took was a slide show of the places he’s been and stories about eating maggots and camel liver and vomiting in the desert. The silly walk confirmed his comedy chops with the young crowd. Palin’s slideshow featured photos from his 25 years spent filming travel documentaries, starting with Around the World in 80 Days. The landscapes and unusual people captured the students’ attention and also related to Python’s in-

British comedian and world traveller Michael Palin squeezes in with students at Longfields-Davidson Heights Secondary School on June 26. Palin stopped in Ottawa to meet geography students before heading to Toronto to accept an award from the Royal Canadian Geographical Society. He encouraged students to travel so they understand their world. escapable legacy; Palin told a story about singing The Lumberjack Song to a man in Bhutan. In Pakistan he watched bull racing, which he said “has no point to it but it’s jolly good fun.” A photo of Palin washing an elephant proved popular, and animals came up during a question-and-answer session with the kids. Palin said the most dangerous things he’s dealt with while travelling are “humans, not animals,” although he was once scratched by a puma. Palin paced across a giant map unrolled across the floor of a gymnasium as he answered questions.

The weirdest place he’s visited: a Tunisian community where people live in caves. He described breaking a rib while whitewater rafting on the Zambezi River in Africa. He admitted to eating maggots as well as some camel liver that didn’t agree with him and quickly came back up; maybe not a ringing endorsement of world travel but an adventure nonetheless. GOLD MEDAL

Palin’s stop in Ottawa came a day before he was to receive the Royal Canadian Geographic Society’s gold

medal for his contribution to geographical literacy. Certainly his travel shows have been seen by millions and have probably inspired many of those viewers to see more of this planet. Palin said his global travels have delivered a dose of humility. “People know a lot more than I do,” he said. “I’ve been to some of the poorest parts of the world, and seeing how people live and raise their children; it’s quite inspiring. “The most hospitable people are very often the poorest people.” Palin said he dreamed of being an explorer as a child and was lucky to

receive an offer from the BBC to host Around the World in 80 Days back in the 1980s. The series’ popularity prompted further trips and shows. He encouraged the students to see the world too. “Go out there,” Palin said. “Travel the world. Understand it.” His stop in Barrhaven came about because he asked to meet children during his Canadian visit and the geographic society’s communications manager lives next door to LDHSS teacher Larisa Deme. Deme said the school’s principal jumped at the chance to have Palin speak to students.

Python alumnus Michael Palin honoured by geographical society Torstar News Service

News - Michael Palin is on the road again. That may not be news in itself because he has been globetrotting for the past 33 years, creating some of the most memorable travel books and TV programs in history. On June 27, the Royal Canadian Geographical Society presented him with their gold medal for “achievements in geography” and, on June 30, his latest travel series, Brazil, debuted on TVO. And while that’s been an important part of his life, he’s probably better known as a superbly inventive comic actor, first as a member of Monty Python’s Flying Circus and later on in films like the classic A Fish Called Wanda. “Please don’t ask which I enjoy more — acting or hosting — because I love them equally,” says Palin on the phone from his London home. “I have been unusually blessed in that I’ve been allowed to pursue two strands of a career that both delight me and seem to please the public.” The travel side of Palin began officially in 1980, when he hosted Great Railway Journeys of the World for the BBC, but it actually had been lurking in his psyche for long before that. “I’ve always been blessed, or cursed, some might say, with an insatiable curiosity, a desire to find some-

thing out about a people and a place. That’s where it all begins.” After having gone around the globe twice, ventured from the North Pole to the South, and survived brutal conditions in both the Sahara desert and the Himalayan mountains, what made the 70 year old pick Brazil for his latest adventure? “I’d never been to Brazil and that was a gap which had to be filled,” replies Palin with his quiet, off-centre logic. “It’s also the fifth biggest country in the world, it’s going to be hosting the 2014 Olympics and — until recently — it was a model of economic success. Dear Lord, those are all perfect reasons for going there.” But Palin has never been one of those academic hosts and if he sets out to explore a place, he brings a joie de vivre to the proceedings that make the miles fly. “Sex, sand and samba, that’s what a lot of people think Brazil is about, so I had to show them all that and more.” For Palin, however, there has also got to be ‘a big surprise’ in each series and he reveals one in the first of four programs on Brazil. There has also been a third strand to Palin’s life in addition to his globetrotting and comic mastery. He’s a superb diarist, a fact that is being revealed to us over time as he releases his collected works. “So many people had been asking me to write an autobiography, or

threatening to write my biography without any input from me, that I thought I’d better tell my story before other people told it for me.” The results have been gripping reading, as you see a man trying to balance his career, his family life and some harrowing personal experiences along the way. The first volume, The Python Years, spanned from 1969-1979, when a gallimaufry of young British comedians found themselves turned into superstars because of demented TV series called Monty Python’s Flying Circus. The second volume, Halfway to Hollywood, spans 1980-1988 and covers the years when Palin made the leap to the big screen, most notably in movies like A Fish Called Wanda and A Private Function. “Publishing your diaries keeps you honest,” chuckles Palin. “For example, I have an entry written on the night I first looked at the script of A Fish Called Wanda and it says, ‘Not funny at all. How do I tell John (Cleese)?’ “But a week later, I’d met the cast and talked to John about the script and couldn’t wait to start filming it. In a conventional autobiography, I might have omitted the part about my selfdoubt and just appear brilliantly clairvoyant about its success.” Still, there were some passages Palin chose to delete. “I consulted my family about sections I thought might trouble them and asked if they’d ob-

ject. And if they did, I left them out.” There were some things, however, that he had to include, especially centring around his sister Angela, his only sibling, nine years older, who took her own life in 1987. For a few minutes, the fizz goes out of the Palin conversational champagne as he discusses her. “I had to put it in. It was a very significant part of my life. But it was very hard. I can never read those particular entries without feeling this terrible sense of regret and waste and loss. “But I didn’t want her remembered as a victim. In the diary, I wind up conveying the complex series of emotions I felt about this bright, talented, clever, sparky woman who just couldn’t shake off this deep depression.” Palin is quiet for a moment. “Just today, I was opening a new centre for psychological counselling and I shared with everyone there the fact that my sister had killed herself. There’s no point in holding back. Get it out of the shadows into the light. That’s the only way we’re ever going to help people.” Currently, Palin is working on volume three, which he says will go up to 1998, “but after that, I think I’ll stop. The closer you get to the present day, the more it seems like journalism or reportage.” Looking at his past, however, has given Palin a unique perspective “on how much things have changed in the

world, both overall and in my profession. “Television is a lot different now, for example, than it was when I started these shows in the 1980s. There’s no more commonality of experience. There’s no more families sitting around the screen watching the same show and make it something they share. “I look around me and there’s more people staring at screens now than I ever have seen in my life, but everyone is looking at different things at different times.” Palin feels this has had a negative effect on our society. “The impulse is not to go out into the real world. It’s to go into a virtual world which you will never taste, touch or smell. That’s horribly sterile to me.” There’s time for one last question. Will there ever be a Python revival? “I never say never,” answers Palin cagily. “But I always tell people it couldn’t really be a Python revival because Graham (Chapman) is dead and it just wouldn’t be the same. I wouldn’t rule out the rest of us getting together again, but I must also add that there’s no chance of it happening at the moment.” Besides, Palin is much too busy and happy with what’s keeping him occupied. “There’s only one secret to the life I lead. I enjoy what I do, every day.”

New brewery to launch at Watson’s Mill event Craft beer fest offers taste of Ottawa Emma Jackson

Community - Let your taste buds roam the Ottawa Valley this July at Watson’s Mill’s new and improved beer tasting event. Billed “Not Your Father’s Labatt 50,” the event on Friday, July 12 will feature beer from 10 specialty breweries from Ottawa and across the province. Watson’s Mill has hosted beer tasting events in the past, but this year guests can zero in on craft beers that mostly come from the surrounding area. Brews from Hogsback, Kichesippi, Mad Hatter, Mill Street and Turtle Island breweries will represent urban Ottawa while Cassel Brewery will represent the east and Barley Days will bring a taste of Picton. Nickel Brook brewery will come in from Burlington. Turtle Island will launch its brewery at the event, meaning guests will be the first to try Ottawa’s newest craft beer. “This is another great thing that’s happening at the event and its fun for us to share that with the Manotick community and other local breweries,” said mill manager Isabelle Geoffrion. “It’s really quite special. We’re just thrilled to be doing that.” Turtle Island founder J.P. Fournier has been working towards opening a brew pub for about three years, he said, after he started brewing his own beer at home about four years ago. He didn’t even like beer at the time, and hadn’t consumed it for about a decade, he said. But then a friend introduced him to a few local craft brews, and he was hooked. “I’m a little bit obsessed when I get passionate about something,”

Fournier said. “I want to do it on as big of a scale as I can.” He began brewing at home, and founded the Ottawa Beer Tap Society which worked with local restaurants to pair home-brewed beer with gourmet food. Last summer Fournier organized the first annual National Capital Craft Beer Week, including a twoday festival outside city hall that attracted 6,500 people. In February he partnered with Winterlude to create Winterbrewed – an outdoor event that attracted 12,000 to drink cold beer in -20C weather. Now Fournier hopes his brewery can share his taste for excitement as he launches specialty craft brews that are far from normal. “The goal is to share our sense of adventure and passion for exceptional craft beer,” he said. At the Watson’s Mill event, Fournier and his team will launch a dark honey brown beer as well as a single-malt, single-hop cherry ale. While he’ll technically be surrounded by his steepest competition, Fournier said he thinks a craft beer event is the perfect launch pad. “We sort of see the other brews as being our brethren,” he said. “With the personality of the industry I firmly believe it will be about supporting each other.” Of course, his interest in growing Ottawa’s craft beer industry in general pairs perfectly with what Watson’s Mill is trying to accomplish. “I love that it’s in Manotick,” he said. “If the attention we’re going to get for a launch can help that event grow as well I’m ecstatic about that.” And growing it is. In previous years, the event has been relatively simple in scope. But this year the mill has added catered pairings and a chance to make it a true night out with the Swing Bridge Band providing live music. “It changes it up a little bit from previous years when it was just taste


Turtle Island Brewery founder JP Fournier admits a slight obsession with craft beer. He will officially launch his new brewery at the Watson’s Mill craft beer tasting event on July 12. the beers and move along,” said organizer Alex Smaridge. “It’s going to be a little more upscale than it has been in the past.” From 7 to 10 p.m., Indulge Kitchens catering company will provide beer-friendly appetizers and hors d’oeuvres, including gourmet sliders.

Guests will vote for their favourite beer, and the winning brewery will be invited to return for a more intimate pairing event with Indulge Kitchens later this summer. A brewers’ corner is another new addition this year, with a brewmaster on hand to answer any questions about beer types and the beer-mak-

ing process. “I’m really very excited for this one,” Smaridge said. Tickets are $30 and include five tasting tickets. Extra tasting tickets are available for sale. For more information call 613692-6455. Watson’s Mill is located at 5525 Dickinson St., Manotick.

Stay smart on the water says safety advocate Jennifer McIntosh

News - Staying smart on the water is all about common sense said Boatsmart president Cameron Taylor. Taylor spent the morning of June 27 cruising the Ottawa River near the Nepean Sailing Club to remind boaters to be safe this summer. He said it’s especially important to be vigilant around long weekends. “Keep an eye out for other boaters because there’s going to be a lot more traffic on the waterways,” he said. Boatsmart was founded 10 years ago and is mandated by Transport Canada to outfit drivers with their Boatsmart operator card and to increase awareness of safe practices onthe water. The fine for operating a boat without the card is $250, Taylor said, but avoiding the fine isn’t the only reason to get the qualification. “You need to get the card so that when you’re out on the water you know how to navigate and know the rules,” he said. Rule number one is never go out on a boat without wearing a personal floatation device. Taylor said 85 per cent of drowning fatalities could have been prevented by wearing one. Drinking and boating also don’t mix. “Seasoned boaters might think it’s OK to have a drink before they boat, but they forget that the effects of alcohol are four times more severe on water than they are on land,” he said, adding 40 per cent of boating fatalities are alcohol related. Before heading out on a trip, the boater should file a travel plan with

a trusted friend or the coast guard so someone knows when they should be back. “A lot of people head out on a fishing trip in the spring and then if something happens no one knows where they went, so they die of hypothermia,” Taylor said.

You need to get the card so that when you’re out on the water you know how to navigate and know the rules. CAMERON TAYLOR

He also recommended having a look at the navigation chart of the area where you’ll be travelling to avoid rocks. Checking the weather before you head out can prevent accidents, Taylor said, but if something comes up unexpectedly, keep an eye on what other boats are doing and head to the nearest safe harbour. The number of boating-related fatalities has decreased annually in the 13 years since Transport Canada made it mandatory to have an operator card. Taylor said education is key in reducing that number even further. “There is still a generational gap, but young people are understanding the importance of wearing a lifejacket and that drinking and boating don’t mix,” Taylor said.

Four-year-old Dale Blaney is surrounded by a pile of shoes she’s outgrown, which will be donated to Friendly Feet, a charity her mom, Shannon, has operated for the past three years. A golf tournament this month seeks to raise money to purchase footwear for children who can’t afford a new pair. with the schools to find out what children need shoes,” he said. “The feeling is really indescribable. Having shoes that are too small or are full of holes is very uncomfortable for children, they cannot focus on learning or playing if they are in discomfort. If by putting them in a shoe or boot that fits them can change their life for the better if even for a few months, all the work involved is so worth it.” “I have had many parents so

grateful since they really cannot afford to get shoes for their children.” The tournament includes 18 holes of golf, dinner, and door prizes. Friendly Feet are now accepting all kinds of children’s footwear, from running shoes to rain boots to sandals, sizes 10 to 6. Cash donations can be sent via money transfer to For more information, please go to



Boatsmart president Cameron Taylor takes a tour on the Ottawa River near the Nepean Sailing Club launch on June 27 to give boaters a few tips about staying safe on the water this summer.

News – Shannon Blaney remembers the first girl she put a pair of shoes on. She was wearing a sandal three sizes too small. “Her face just lit up when I put on a running shoe that fit,” she said. “She hugged me and asked if they were for her to keep. It was a very emotional moment.” Blaney is part of an Ottawa fundraiser which will offer children some sole support this month. The south Ottawa resident is spearheading a golf tournament in support of Friendly Feet, an initiative she started in 2011 after she heard of a number of children who did not have proper fitting footwear. The tournament is scheduled to take place, rain or shine, on July 25 at The Meadows Golf and Country Club. This is the third year Blaney and the community will be raising funds for the organization, which delivered 500 pairs of shoes to Ottawa children during its first year, and raised $900 as part of a silent auction fundraiser the second year. The goal for this year’s fundraiser is $2,000, said Blaney, and over the last three years, the momentum has kept on going. “Since more people are aware of Friendly Feet, I get ongoing shoe drop offs throughout the year, so this year decided not to do a big shoe drive, but instead have a golf tournament,” she explained. “It is catching on. The first year, we had just over 500 pairs of shoes, and last year, over 600 pairs. I was able to buy around 40 pairs of new shoes. Throughout this year I have collected around 200 pairs so far.” Perhaps the best part for Blaney is when it comes to actually purchasing the shoes for the children, knowing they have likely not had anything new in their life. “In the fall, we will be in contact

Tommy and Melanie Glatzmayer welcome 6,500 copies of their new book on June 24. The story, written by their mother Nathalie Wendling, is a sequel to the picture book Tommy wrote several years ago to help his classmates understand Melanie’s rare disability, Cornelia de Lange syndrome.

Two pet rats squeak into Catelli Castle Emma Jackson

News - When you pack an emergency kit, do you include your two pet rats? If you’re Tommy and Melanie Glatzmayer you do. The Manotick siblings are once again the adventurous stars of a self-published book to raise awareness about Cornelia de Lane syndrome and other disabilities. Their mother, Nathalie Wendling, has written a sequel to Tommy’s brainchild, Melanie and Tommy Have Two Pet Rats and One Syndrome, which was published when he was in Grade 2. He wrote it to help his sister who suffers from CdLS, and to teach other kids about her syndrome. The family has spent several years travelling across the country with rats in tow to bring their story of love and acceptance to as many schoolchildren as possible. In this second adventure, the

story expands its focus from just CdLS and encourages kids to accept everyone as they are, even if they look different. Wendling writes in her book, “Sometimes people with a syndrome look different. Not everyone with a syndrome looks different. Not everyone who looks different has a syndrome.” Along with Melanie, the book includes Manotick student Zachary, who has Treacher-Collins syndrome, and former Manotick student Alex, who has a large scar on his jaw from a surgery to remove a tumour. “Since we live in a small village, it’s nice to let people get to know these kids who look different, so people can smile at them when they see them,” Wendling said. In the new story, Tommy, Melanie and their rats head off to Catelli Castle to search for the lost jewels of Princess Zoe. After a few brushes with

crazy cats, a bully and a raging fire, they recover the jewels and, like all good archaeologists, give it to a museum for safekeeping. Along the way, loyal rat friends Chewy and Jay Bee help the sibling team out of a few squeakers. Near the end, Zachary is featured as Princess Zoe’s generous brother. A whole page is dedicated to his syndrome and his ability to use sign language to communicate. It includes pictures of alphabet and number signs for kids to practice. Alex is also featured at the end of the book, with a message that everyone deserves respect and a smile. The new book will be launched at the annual Taste of Manotick event on Aug. 17 in front of Hair Inc salon. From 4 to 10 p.m., visitors can buy a signed copy of the book and meet the rats who have become celebrities in their own right. Visit for more information.

Chess club mixes teaching, fun at Assumption Michelle Nash

Community - Assumption School is thinking three moves ahead with one of its after-school clubs. More than 40 students from grades 4, 5 and 6 participated in the end of the year chess club tournament on June 25. Principal Luce Paradis started the program two years ago as a means to get her students thinking in a different way. “This is abstract thinking, which is hard to grasp, and this is how we are grasping it.” Brad Thomson heads the Ottawa chapter of Chess’N Math, located on at Strategy Games on Bank Street. The organization has been working with Assumption, attending its chess club meetings to teach the students how to play. This chess tournament is unlike others, with laughter, clapping, and cheering going on throughout. Thomson said it is not about being serious; it’s about learning and having fun.


Students at Assumption School celebrate at their chess club’s end-of-year tournament on June 25. “Playing chess has been proven to help improve a student in their studies,” he said. Thomson and teaching assistant Natasha McRae helped Paradis run the tournament and brought chess buttons and medals for the students. McRae, who will be at-

tending teachers college in the fall, said she loves working with Chess’N Math because she gets to watch her students grow into amazing chess players. “It’s all about teaching one piece at a time, then once you have all the pieces down, the strategy comes out,” McRae

said. The students who participated in the tournament sat

on the gym floor while they played, some taking out an opponent in less then five minutes, others having a longer battle of wits to win. Paradis said the Grade 6 students, who have been playing since last year, have become incredibly serious. One teacher added when her students are finished with an in-class assignment, they ask if they can play. “This is a game that really promotes a higher intellect and so many of my students are succeeding on their own levels -- it’s great,” Paradis said. The funding for the club comes from the Catholic school board, which has allowed the school to purchase enough chess sets to accommodate the students. Paradis said she has played with a number of students during their Friday meetings

and has lost to more than one student. “It makes me proud, not sad that I have been beat,” she said. “I’m not good at this game - the kids are better at it then me. You always have to think three moves ahead, and here they are thinking, and learning - it’s amazing.” The program is expanding, with more schools in the board signing up to take part in the fall, Thomson said. Paradis said she is currently working on the school hosting a neighbourhood-wide tournament in the fall. “It’s going to be aimed at anyone who wants to play chess,” she said. Thomson said his organization is available for any school that is interested in signing up and can contact him at ottawa@chess-math. org. or by calling 613-5653662.

Cardinal Creek village won’t have big-box stores, developer vows Laura Mueller


Soup’s on! Usha Kappagantula stirs a pot of soup in preparation for the Manjari Sankurathri Memorial Foundation’s annual fundraising picnic in Andrew Haydon Park on June 22. The picnic, now in its 11th year, supports eye care and education in India. To date the foundation has educated 1,930 children and funded 178,805 eye surgeries. Organizers expected to raise about $5,000 at this year’s event.

News - A developer insisted a controversial commercial district planned for a new community in Cardinal Creek won’t be big-box stores. The new village located off highway 174 east of Trim Road won’t begin construction for another five years, but when it’s done, the 208-hectare site will become home to more than 8,000 residents and create around 950 jobs in a mixed-use centre that will feature offices, retail shops, schools and parks. Two residents pleaded with the city’s planning committee on June 25 to prevent a commercial zone next to the Ottawa River from becoming built up with big-box stores that block the view. Although Cumberland Community Association president Clive Horn said the residential area is “very well thought out,” he hoped the commit-

tee would do everything it could to strengthen the quality of the new village by excluding the opportunity to build big-box stores, especially on the river. Anda Bruinsma made the same impassioned argument.

Box stores will come and go but this community will be here for a long time. ANDA BRUINSMA, CARDINAL CREEK RESIDENT

“It’s critical not to lock it in the way it is,” she said. “Box stores will come and go but this community will be here for a long time.” But Wendy Nott, a designer working on behalf of the developer, Taggart, showed photos of tradi-

tional-looking buildings with a small-town village feel. “The form and architectural treatment are intended to be very much in line with village character,” Nott said. “This is not intended to be a large format, traditional development.” Ted Phillips, a lawyer representing Taggart Group of Companies, said it is a “misnomer” to call it a commercial area. Creating an attractive development is in the company’s best interests, Phillips said. “To think that by approving anything today we are going to devastate that area is completely inappropriate,” he said, adding that he hopes Taggart can have a “degree of trust” with community associations moving forward. Phillips said Taggart is committed to working with neighbouring resident groups in a voluntary design guideline process. After planning commit-

tee approved the Cardinal Creek village concept plan, Taggart sent a letter to the city promising to undertake those consultations. “This will confirm that Taggart will agree to undertake an owner initiated design guideline process for the mixeduse area once we have completed the draft approval process … While we would apply to draft approve these lands we would not ask for zoning or site plan approval for the mixed-use lands until these guidelines are finalized. The letter says Taggart plans to initiate zoning for the residential lands and draft plan applications on the lands north of Old Montreal Road this summer. That satisfied east-end councillors, including Orléans Coun. Bob Monette. “It’s one of the nicest properties left in our area,” he said. “If we’re going to do it, let’s do it right.”

You don’t need to hide behind a mask, Aries. Let your true feelings be shown and you will gain more respect for having done so. If you meet resistance, try again. Don’t worry about a missed opportunity this week, Taurus. You will get a second chance and make the most of that welldeserved opportunity. Gemini, you will need to find ways to sure up a plan of action before you can start to move forward. You may want to seek advice from Pisces. Cancer, keep trying even if you feel as though your efforts are getting you nowhere. Eventually you will make a breakthrough, and all that hard work will pay off. Leo, take care of a few things early in the week and then enjoy some much-needed and well-deserved rest and relaxation. Put travel at the top of your to-do list. Virgo, you may experience a scare, but it will be short-lived and you will recover quickly. The rest of the week may prove uneventful, but do your best to stay busy.

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!

Eiderdown filled 50. In the year of Our Lord 52. Obstruct or block 53. A companion animal 54. Political action committee

Libra, you may be second-guessing an earlier decision that you now find isn’t working out exactly as you had hoped. It is not too late to take a different path. Scorpio, spend some quality time at home if you have been away for awhile. Time spent with your loved ones will reinvigorate you and put some hop back in your step. Sagittarius, step out of the shadows for a bit this week to get the praise and recognition you deserve. There’s no shame in accepting the gratitude of others. Capricorn, your focus on the future may be making it difficult for you to see what is right in front of you. Take stock of your immediate future and you’ll be glad you did. Aquarius, expect to tackle many things on your to-do list this week. While you are feeling motivated, keep going. You may accomplish a lot more. Pisces, sometimes you will have to make sacrifices, and this week you may find yourself putting others first. You thrive at being selfless.
