Incentives disadvantage rest of city: Hubley Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Business groups see a new tax-holiday plan as a way to boost job creation in Orléans and on Carling Avenue, but some councillors worry the strategy could put other areas of the city at a disadvantage. As part of a broad update to the city’s economic development strategy presented to the finance committee on Nov. 6, the city’s director of economic development and innovation, Saad Bashir, revealed a plan to provide tax incentives for businesses to come to areas that need economic stimulus or redevelopment. While these “community improvement plans” were pitched as a new citywide policy, some councillors were troubled that city staff had already chosen Orléans and part of Carling Avenue to benefit from the program before outlining the selection criteria or details about the way the program would work. Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley dissented on the report because he felt the plan to defer taxes for business that set up in Orléans would disadvantage other areas of the city, including his ward.

Riding needs revamp: Couns. Blair Edwards

blair.edwards@metroland.com

EMC news - Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley said proposed changes to federal ridings will split his community into two electoral districts. The Ontario Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission, one of 10 set up across the country, has proposed 15 new electoral districts for

Ontario including a CarletonKanata riding, to bring the province’s total to 121. The proposed changes would see West Carleton split from the current riding of Carleton-Mississippi Mills and replaced with a Carleton-Kanata riding. An area between Terry Fox Drive and the Carp River all the way from Castlefrank Road to Palladium Drive has been

included in the riding of Nepean-Carleton. But the new CarletonKanata riding should include all of Kanata, said Hubley, who is asking the Ontario Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission to consider moving the western boundary line from Terry Fox Drive to the Carp River. “We need to be careful about splitting communities,”

said Hubley. “By using Terry Fox instead of the Carp River as the boundary, what they do is cut out the houses by Sobeys (located near Terry Fox and Hazeldean Road); they cut out the (Kanata Recreation Complex) and the Sensplex... and that area, and they were moving it to Stittsville.” See NEW, page 3

Proposed federal riding boundaries need tweaks: councillors Hubley delivered his recommendations during a public hearing hosted by the boundaries commission at Ottawa’s Hampton Inn and Conference Centre on Nov. 5 and 6. Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson, who also spoke at the meeting, took Hubley’s recommendation one step further, asking the commission to consider moving the western boundary of the Carleton-Kanata riding to Huntmar Road. “I said follow the old Kanata boundary,” she said, adding the boundary should move along Highway 417 to Palladium Drive then travel along Huntmar Road until it reaches Maple Grove Road, continue along the Carp River until it hits Terry Fox. Stittsville Coun. Shad Qadri said the boundary should

be left at the Carp River. “You’re going to add another piece of property to that boundary or another piece of land to that boundary which is not necessary.” Qadri said he is more concerned with the names being proposed for the ridings in his area. “In the one we will be in, in Stittsville, it’s going to be called Carleton – what is Carleton?” he asked. “Why not call it Ottawa and maybe take a large urban/suburban component of that riding which is either Stittsville or Riverside-South – call it Ottawa-Stittsville or Ottawa-Riverside.” NEW BOUNDARIES

Under the Electoral Boundaries Readjustment Act, the commission’s main aim in redrawing boundaries is to divide the province into

electoral districts as close to the average population as reasonably possible. The population of a district should remain within 25 per cent of the average once consideration is given to communities of interest or identity, and historical and geographic factors. A commission can depart from the 25 per cent guideline to deal with extraordinary circumstances. The commission makes final decisions about where the electoral boundaries will be located after consultation, giving the public and MPs an opportunity to express their views and participate in the process. To consult the proposal online, visit www.federalredistribution.ca, to obtain a copy, call the commission at 1-855-747-7224 (toll-free). With files from John Carter

Low turnout at Kanata budget consultation

blair.edwards@metroland.com

EMC news - The usual suspects turned out for the city’s final round of budget consultations at the Mlacak Centre in Kanata on Wednesday, Nov. 7. But there weren’t that many of them. Half the seats in the meeting hall were empty, with most of the audience made up of city staff, lobbyists and members of special interest groups. “That’s been about the same in other public meetings,” Mayor Jim Watson said after the evening’s questionand-answer session wrapped up. “Generally, when people feel comfortable and the budget is balanced and you don’t see deep cuts or big spending, you don’t get as many people out,” he said. “I think it’s a reflection of the fact that we’ve worked hard to come forward with a budget that is generally acceptable, because it’s the lowest tax rate in six years and we haven’t gone through any slashing and burning of any vital public service programs.” Fewer than 20 residents attended the west-end budget meeting, the fourth of four consultations held across the city to discuss Ottawa’s draft budget for 2013. The meeting was attended by senior staff including city manager Kent Kirkpatrick,

BUDGET

The evening began with a presentation by Watson and city treasurer Marian Simulik about the draft budget, which is scheduled to go to council for a vote on Nov. 28. The suggested 2.09 per cent tax increase for the municipal tax rate is the lowest in six years and translates to a $67 hike on the average urban homeowner’s tax bill. For rural residents, the increase is 1.98 per cent, or $50 on an average rural homeowner’s bill. “This is, as the mayor mentioned, the lowest tax-supported budget that we’ve put in front of council in some time,” she said. It also falls below the mark set by council to keep all tax increases below 2.5 per cent. Simulik said the proposed tax increase does not include consideration of this year’s Municipality Property Assessment Corporation’s reassessment of property values across the province. The city will deliver a tax policy report in April, which will adjust how much residents will pay next year. The draft budget also calls for a transit fee increase of 2.5 per cent, $3.5-million in savings through staff reductions and an $11 cut to urban residents’ garbage fee, a result of the city’s new biweekly collection system. The city has also reduced the number of its consultants by half and frozen recreation fees. Ivan Levac, a director of the National Capital Heavy Con-

struction Association, asked if council would introduce a one per cent capital tax levy and increase this year’s tax rate to 2.5 per cent, using the additional money for road repair and infrastructure renewal. Watson said the city is spending $340 million over the next three years on infrastructure through its Ottawa on the Move program – on top of the city’s base infrastructure budget. The money will pay for upgrades to roads, sewers, sidewalks, culverts and cycling facilities. “All of this work has been delayed for a long period of time and we see from time to time infrastructure failing and as a result we’re trying to play a little bit of catch up.” The recent sinkhole on highway 174 in Orléans shows how crucial it is to maintain infrastructure, said Watson. But the mayor refused to support a levy because he said it failed to keep the pressure on politicians to keep costs under control. “It’s not a levy, it’s a tax – it’s not an optional thing.” The previous city council – led by former mayor Larry O’Brien – produced budgets with large tax hikes because it tacked items onto its wish list without making corresponding cuts, said Watson. “Politicians are not good at taking money out of a budget,” he said. The city is waiting for the federal government’s next round of federal infrastructure funding, said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson. “This is a national problem,” she said. “It’s not a City of Ottawa problem.” Watson said the city must balance the need for infrastructure renewal in the older

Most of the other comments at the consultation either congratulated city council on suggested spending levels in the 2013 budget or offered a few helpful tweaks or suggestions. Gary Sealey, president of the Kanata Beaverbrook Community Association, suggested the city provide an online list of expenditures ward by ward.

Measures to spur growth: mayor munity has a lot to offer, including an educated, bilingual workforce. “Very few people actually stay in OrlĂŠans and work there,â€? she said. “There is a lot of excitement (about the proposed plan) in the business community in OrlĂŠans... There are some that have been stalled and this initiative is very exciting for them.â€? The two proposed locations would be part of a five-year pilot project, but Bashir said he would likely be ready to expand the program to different areas after observing how it works in OrlĂŠans and on Carling for six months. “Once the programs are up and running‌with eligibility criteria, if we feel comfortable with it, I would see no reason not to expand it further,â€? Bashir said. Information on the Carling plan – including the boundaries of the area – is sparse. It will be an urban revitalization plan, and more information is “forthcoming,â€? according to a city report. Bay ward Coun. Mark Taylor has been working towards an economic development plan for the area by meeting with local businesses for the past several months.

“When I meet with businesses, how can I convince them to come to Kanata if we are paying them not to?â€? Hubley asked. He wanted to defer the report until Bashir could give more details about the eligibility criteria, but the committee voted against a delay. His colleague, Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson, disagreed. “Deferring it helps stagnate economic development in our city,â€? she said. “It’s extremely important now.â€? Mayor Jim Watson had a short speech prepared to speak in favour of the plan. He said the idea is “a good experimentâ€? to try, and something the city has never done before. While it would be nice to give incentives for the whole city, it’s not practical to have community improvement plans everywhere, Watson said. “We have to focus on areas that need help,â€? he said. Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans also expressed concerns about the plan. Still, she voted in support of the report. “This is a slippery slope,â€? she said. “I don’t like where this is going‌maybe the market should be the driver.â€? Deans said the criteria used to choose the areas that get a community improvement plan “will be its success or failureâ€? and supporting the program without seeing those criteria made her uncomfortable. Kitchissippi ward resident Kevin O’Donnell ran down to city hall during the meeting to speak because he was so opposed to the “tax holiday.â€? “The city should be focused on ensuring all businesses have a chance to prosper‌but whether they prosper or fail is up to the market,â€? he said, adding it’s not appropriate for the city to “be in the business of picking winners.â€? The city should invest in things that really attract businesses to invest here, such as a good transit system and infrastructure, O’Donnell said. Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches made the same point. “If we’re giving away money for taxes, are we going to have enough to provide the

stuff that really incents businesses to come here, like transit?â€? he asked. Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess said the city isn’t “shovelling cash at anyoneâ€? and added that it is difficult to justify investing in transit and infrastructure if there is no business development happening in an area. It’s a chicken-andegg problem, he said. Community improvement plans are permitted by the provincial government and have been used in Hamilton, Kitchener, London, Niagara Falls and Windsor. There are two types proposed for Ottawa: plans that foster urban revitalization through grants for businesses that repair or rehabilitate existing employment areas, and employmentrelated plans that help create jobs in areas where residential growth has outstripped job creation. That is the case in OrlĂŠans, where the ratio of jobs to households is 0.5 – far lower than the citywide target of 1.3 local jobs per household. It’s unclear why OrlĂŠans has lagged behind, said Jamie Kwong McDonald, executive director of the OrlĂŠans Chamber of Commerce. She said the east-end com-

Council’s tax holiday amounts to a bribe

C

ouncil is selling a plan to offer businesses a “tax holidayâ€? to locate in OrlĂŠans and along part of Carling Avenue as a way to stimulate economically depressed areas in the city. Let’s call it what it really is: a bribe. Businesses who cash in on this offer will split an estimated $20 million in property tax refunds over five years. Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess

says the city isn’t “shovelling cash at anyone,� adding that it’s difficult to justify transit and infrastructure investment in an area with no business development growth. It’s a chicken-and-egg problem, he said. The councillor has chosen the correct metaphor, but drawn the wrong conclusion. If council wants to encourage business development in the city, it should provide good transit and infrastructure, build communities that

allow residents to live, work and play without a commute. That doesn’t mean forfeiting $20 million in potential tax revenue. That’s property tax money which should help the city pay for services and infrastructure in the area. Council’s $20-million plan offers a temporary tax deferral, but no other tangible and permanent inducements that businesses value. If the city wants to encourage economic development in

the east end, it should consider fast-tracking construction of light rail to OrlÊans. The pilot program put before council last week was light on details. There was no accompanying eligibility criteria – just the names OrlÊans and Carling Avenue. The project was snuck in front of the city’s finance committee, buried in a mound of other reports. Using Bloess’ chickenand-egg analogy, which

should come first? A decision to forfeit $20 million in property taxes or a sound plan based on study and sober discussion? To be fair, council has done a lot to encourage economic development in Ottawa this term. It transformed OCRI into Invest Ottawa and created a plan to encourage entrepreneurship. But over the past two weeks it has come up with two ill-conceived and unfair

economic development plans. Last week, council agreed to offer special treatment to larger businesses that set up shop in Ottawa – basically putting small businesses at a comparative disadvantage. Council’s tax holiday has the same effect, pitting ward against ward. A plan that bribes businesses to locate in a particular ward is unfair, unwise and ill-conceived. Coun. Diane Deans called the plan the start of a slippery slope, suggesting economic development should be market driven. Taxpayers would likely agree.

COLUMN

War against progress continues CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

T

he pace of change is exhausting. They’re changing the passport, changing the $20 bill, closing the ServiceOntario machines and starting Christmas music later at Shoppers Drug Mart. So much to learn, so little time. Let’s start with the last one. An unanticipated wave of common sense swept over the business community, resulting in a decision by a major retail chain to hold off on the Christmas music until at least after Remembrance Day. You might not even have noticed that it was missing in the days after Halloween. But maybe you did. Maybe you were walking through the drugstore with an odd little feeling that something was just a bit off. Then you realized, right there in the razor blades aisle, that the song playing was Raindrops Are Falling on My Head, not Jingle Bell Rock. Somehow you resisted the urge to complain. When you learned the reason why, you might even have applauded. Christmas music, particularly the cheery commercial kind, can wait until after we have had time to think about the costs and sacrifices of war. Who knows, maybe the idea will catch on, more businesses will adopt this practice next year and we can be spared Frosty the Snow Man until there is actual frost. Meanwhile, there are gains and losses in the war against technology. Example: fancy new passports coming which will be full of iconic Canadian images and

iconic Canadian politicians, not all of them Conservative. The passports will also have the inevitable chip in them, electronic rather than edible. The chip will have an antenna, which isn’t as alarming as it sounds. You can still put it in your pocket, but you can also wave it at a scanner which will then know everything about you. Apparently the scanner won’t know more about you than a person could, from reading what’s printed on the passport, but in our society we now like our machines to know as much as possible. People less so. That’s why the Ontario government put machines in most of the shopping centres, allowing you to do such things as renew your car registration without having to be in contact with a human being. Those machines were actually quite efficient and enabled you to skip long lineups. For some reason there weren’t long line-ups at the machines. The lack of a lineup might have been due to more people doing their government business online. Still, it is worth keeping in mind that when you deal with a human being rather than a machine you might be helping human beings stay employed. Speaking of which – and apologies for the lame transition – Queen Elizabeth is more fully employed on the new $20 bill than she was on the old one. The bill, issued last week, has her image on it three times, compared to the old bill’s one. There’s the big portrait on the front of the bill and smaller images peering out from those metallic strips front and back. On the new $50, which was issued in March, the three images are of Mackenzie King, so this one is definitely an improvement. Six Queens will get you a new passport, which you can wave at a scanner and it will know everything about you. Is life great or what?

EMC news - More than 80 seniors gathered at the Kanata Seniors Centre for a Remembrance Day ceremony on Nov. 8. Lt. Col. Scott Murphy, who grew up in Katimavik and is now stationed with air force staff at National Defence Headquarters in Ottawa, placed a wreath on behalf of the Canadian Armed Forces. Murphy also spoke about the sacrifices made by Canadian service men and women

throughout history, from the War of 1812 to the war in Afghanistan. “Today we gather here to remember men and women who put themselves in harm’s way …to preserve freedom,” said Murphy. Moria Green, the Kanata Legion’s poppy campaign chairwoman, said, “By wearing a poppy you are demonstrating you have not forgotten those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.” Following the ceremony, the seniors gathered for a special luncheon.

ADVERTORIAL

Ottawa’s Health is in Your Hands.

Get Your Flu Vaccine. Each year, 5-10% of Canadians are affected by influenza, or what is commonly referred to as “the flu”. This disease causes missed days at school and work, and may require increased visits to the hospitals. The Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care offers influenza vaccines at no cost to everyone who is six months of age and older and who lives, works or attends school in Ontario. Influenza can be a serious respiratory disease - not to be confused with the common cold. Influenza spreads rapidly through sneezing and coughing and through direct contact with objects that have come into contact with the virus. Symptoms include fever, headache, cough, aches and extreme fatigue. Weakness can be moderate to severe and last up to one month. Children and seniors are most at risk of getting influenza. Complications include pneumonia and/or worsening of medical conditions. The most effective way to avoid getting the flu is to be vaccinated. Each year, the World Health Organization (WHO)

recommends which strains of influenza should be included in the vaccine. It is very safe and cannot give you the flu because the vaccine contains only dead virus. The most common side effect is a sore arm for one or two days. Some people develop a fever and muscle aches. These symptoms are usually mild and can easily be managed with rest, extra fluids and mild pain medication. It takes about two weeks after receiving the vaccine to be protected against influenza. To remain protected, you need to get vaccinated every year. While children and seniors are most at risk of getting the flu, healthy people should also get the vaccine to protect themselves and those who are at risk in the community. The vaccine is safe for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Children under nine years old need two doses, given at least four weeks apart, if they have not had an influenza vaccine before. Ottawa Public Health offers influenza vaccine clinics all over the city. For clinic details, visit ottawa.ca/flu or contact

Ottawa Public Health Information at 613-580-6744. The influenza vaccine is also available through physician offices and some pharmacies.

EMC news - The city stands to gain more than an extra million dollars from a new slots revenue sharing agreement with the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation. While city staff said the new money-sharing formula is simply an extension of the existing agreement the city has with OLG, at least one councillor approached it cautiously. In the context of an ongoing debate over a location for a possible new casino in Ottawa, Konxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Egli asked if approving the agreement would “box us in” for a new casino that could be located in Ottawa. The answer from the city’s top lawyer, Rick O’Connor, was no, and that satisfied the finance and economic development committee on Nov. 6. The committee unanimously approved the agreement. One question that O’Connor couldn’t answer was how the funding formula would apply to the possible addition of table games at the city’s only current gambling facility. “If the Rideau Carleton Raceway is the proposed casino location, does this impact on our ability to gain revenue from the addition of gaming tables in addition to slot revenue?” Egli asked. While O’Connor said he didn’t know the answer yet, but would be asking OLG about that, representatives from OLG have already confirmed to media that the revenue-sharing agreement only applies to slots and money made from gaming tables would not be shared. Over the past five years, the city has received between $4.3 and $4.4 million annually from 1,250 slot machines at the Rideau Carleton Raceway. The new agreement would add $1.3 million more a year to the city’s coffers if slot revenue remains the same. The agreement means the city gets 5.25 per cent of first $65 million of net slot revenue, three per cent on next $135 million, 2.5 per cent of the next $300 million and half a per cent of the remainder of net slot revenue.

List of chores was very long

T

here was a price to pay for being the youngest in the family. I was given, I thought, more than my share of chores, all because Mother thought they were easy jobs and ones I could handle. All because I was the smallest of the five children, but also the youngest. It was my chore to keep the wood box in the kitchen filled. It was a job I hated because never once did I carry in the wood from the summer kitchen that I didn’t end up with splinters in my hands and often in my arms. But Mother thought it was

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories an easy chore and one of which I was quite capable of handling. Another job that fell on my shoulders was making sure the water under the ice box accumulated in a white granite basin, was emptied. Only once I remember forgetting about it, and having it overflow all over the kitchen floor.

That meant I had to get down on my hands and knees and mop the entire kitchen floor. I never forgot to check the basin for melted ice after that. Making the toast for breakfast was another job Mother thought I was quite capable of handling. Of course, there was no electricity on the farm back then, so a wire rack was

I chose solar to increase the resale value of my home

placed over the fire in the Findlay Oval. It held four slices of bread and I couldn’t take my eyes off it for a second or the toast would burn. The penalty for this error in judgment was my having to eat the burnt toast. The fact that my hateful brother Emerson did everything in his power to have me burn the bread, had me so nervous, I was a complete wreck by the time everyone had their toast. As soon as I got home from school, and had changed into my play clothes, I was also expected to go out to the hen house and gather the eggs. I used a wicker basket and had to be very careful to handle the eggs carefully, because many of them would be sold in Renfrew on the Saturday. Large eggs sold for 15 cents a dozen, but if they were cracked, you were lucky to get a nickel. My sister

Audrey, older than I by about 11 years, often didn’t use the basket. Like Mother, Audrey would bunch up the bottom of her apron and carry the eggs that way. And never once do I ever remember her cracking an egg. I tried it one day with my apron, but with disastrous results. I had to go out behind the hen house and get ride of the ones I managed to break before Mother saw what I had done. It was back to the basket for me! There was a job, however, I felt very privileged to be given. After the milking was done at night, the milk was moved by stone boat, in big milk cans, into the summer kitchen. It was my job to place a square of clean cheese cloth over each can and then sink on the lids tightly. I could never figure out why we used the cheese cloth, but it was a necessary part of the job. The next morning, before my chore with the toast

began, I would take the big brown baking bowl and the little tin strainer out to the summer kitchen to one of the milk cans. Using the strainer, I would skim off the cream that would settle over the night to the top, and put it into the bowl, so that everyone would have a helping of rich cream for their porridge. I liked this job because Mother and I had a ritual that never varied all the time we lived on the farm in Renfrew County. I would bring the bowl of cream into the kitchen and say to Mother, as I did every morning, “A miracle happened overnight, Mother. Last night that milk was white, and this morning it is the colour of gold. It’s a miracle Mother.” And I would wait for the answer that never varied. “It’s not a miracle Mary… that’s just good old fashioned Renfrew County magic.” We would both laugh, never tiring of the ritual that went on day after day, every morning of my life as the youngest in the family, on that farm in Northcote.

said they wanted to tie in with Remembrance Day since it landed on the weekend. “We wanted to do something to tie into Remembrance Day,” said Collins. “It puts everything in perspective.” Anderson taught a variety of self-defence strategies, including close-armed and close-quarter combat. ““I think this is a time of year when people have more thought to what people went through,” he said. “It’s our tribute to those who went through the war.” Anderson said training had to be “quick and effective” in order for the troops to grasp and retain the lessons. “The techniques are designed for the beginner,” he said. “It’s got to be simple; it’s got to be fast.” Anderson first became interested in the combat techniques after reading about a Second World War spy school in Oshawa, Ont. “It sounded like something that interested me,” he said. So he went about learning and absorbing as much information as he could, from history books and veterans of the war. “I only know this much,” he said, holding his thumb and pointer finger close together, “of what they (the veterans) know.” Julie Ethier said it’s important these techniques are taught to the younger generations or else they will be lost. “It reminds me that World War II, that era, how little time ... they had to be trained for the situation,” she said. “It’s part of history that’s getting harder and harder to hang on to.” As the veterans of the Second World War pass away, so too does their knowledge. “If I don’t show this, it’s gone,” said Anderson, whose class also collected items for the Ottawa Food Bank. “These things disappear ... a part of our history disappears with it.”

Buy, store, prepare fish properly EMC lifestyle - Aquaculture is centuries old and is widespread in Asia. Until the 1980s, more than 70 per cent of world supply came from China, Japan, Korea and the Philippines. It’s a relatively new industry to Canada. In Ontario, fish culture goes back to about 1866, but it was only in 1962 that changes to the Game and Fish Act permitted raising of commercial fish for stocking waterways and later for human consumption. Ontario’s initial 16 fish farms have grown to more than 200 today.

Just in time for Christmas at Mill Music We are cutting back the prices AND you pay...

BUYING AND STORING

Farmed fish are of consistent quality and are available all year round. You can buy them at retail outlets, farmers markets or at the farm gate in several forms: whole dressed, fillets or smoked. To prepare for storage, soak in salted water for 30 minutes to remove the natural slippery, protective coating.

NO TAX on any purchase over $50 storewide. Friday Nov 23rd 9:30 - 8pm and Saturday Nov 24th 9 -5

Over 700 guitars in stock and a large selection of Amps, Keyboards, Drums, Banjos, fiddles, sound systems and much more.

MILL MUSIC | 16 Argyle St. N Renfrew, ON Look for the big yellow Silo, downtown Renfrew. At Mill Music... we let the instruments do the talking.

Tightly wrap and refrigerate for two to three days. To store for up to three months, freeze tightly-wrapped fish at -18 C. PREPARING AND COOKING

Cook with mild-flavoured oils (such as butter, hydrogenated shortening, peanut or corn oil) to prevent flavour from transferring to the mild flavour of the fish. To ensure moist and tender fish, probe with a fork while cooking to see that flesh is opaque and flakes easily. Here’s a brief outline of the chief cooking methods: Pan-Fry: Dip fish pieces in milk, roll in flour. Lightly grease a heavy skillet and brown on both sides. Season with salt and pepper. Bake: Sprinkle with salt and pepper and brush with melted butter or vegetable oil. Bake in well-greased pan for 15 to 20 minutes at 400 F (200 C). Microwave: Season to taste fresh or thawed fish; cover with plastic wrap leaving one corner open for venting. Cook on high for five

to six minutes per pound (or four to five minutes per fillet). Let stand three to four minutes before serving. Barbecue: Place seasoned fillet on grill, skin side down. Cook on one side only for about 10 minutes at medium to high heat. Poach: In flat pan, barely cover fish with hot Court Bouillon (see below). Cover and simmer, not boil, for four to six minutes. (Court Bouillon: Combine one litre of water, three tablespoons of lemon juice or one tablespoon of cider vinegar and 1.5 teaspoons of salt. Bring to a boil and cook three minutes before poaching fish.) Broil: Cover with basting oil or Dijon sauce (see below). Broil 10 to 15 centimetres from heat source for about 10 minutes. (Dijon sauce: Mix one part Dijon mustard with three parts mayonnaise. Season with lemon pepper and fresh dill. Spread evenly over fillets for broiling, baking or barbecuing.) Foodland Ontario

Support centre helps connect Chinese seniors Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - A support group for Chinese seniors is helping them integrate into Canadian life and meet new friends – something many found daunting before joining the Kanata Chinese Seniors Support Centre. Family was the overwhelming reason many of the seniors immigrated to Canada. Once here though, they said they were lonely and found it hard to meet people when they didn’t speak or understand English. “The life here is very lonely,” said Ming Hua Ai, through a translator. She moved to the country in 2009 with her husband Zhi Guo Li to be near their only daughter. Ai said there were no people who spoke her language where she lived and having little English comprehension, it kept her from venturing out. Then her daughter came across the website for the Kanata Chinese Seniors Support Centre. “She wanted us to have more activities,” said Ai. “Meet people and make friends.” The support centre is where she met Wen Jean Ho, founder of the group. “She’s very kind and very helpful; very strong, very special and very concerned for senior people,” said Ai about Ho. Ho was laid off from her full-time job last year, and instead of giving up, she threw herself into running the support centre, said Ai. “We learn how to be strong and how to face problems and how to handle difficulties from her,” said Ai. “She cares so much about seniors...She respects everyone and give us the dignity to be a senior.” LAUNCH

Ho launched the Chinese seniors support centre this past March. The Kanata Chinese Seniors Support Centre is a non-profit organization

Members of the Kanata Chinese Seniors Support Centre say the group has been instrumental in helping them adjust to their new life in Canada. that aims to establish, develop and maintain a support hub for Chinese seniors in Kanata and the surrounding areas. “I see the need,” said Ho about launching the centre. “People need a bridge, a vehicle to help them connect with the community.” The support centre provides opportunities for its members to socialize, volunteer in the community and be active. Weekly activities include fitness classes, crafting, English lessons, seminars, health

and wellness sessions, day trips, volunteering in the community and supporting other events. Hua Qing Yang moved to the country one year ago to be with his daughter’s family. A former surgeon and professor at a medical university in China, Yang said he found it difficult to adjust to life in Canada. “When I was in China I was so busy with my work. But here I hardly have anything to do,” he said. “I feel like I’m useless after so many years in surgery.

Braced to hit the stage Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

EMC news - Audiences in Barrhaven can brace themselves for a special performance: a one-woman play about a young girl faced with scoliosis. The play, entitled Brace, is the story of Rebecca Steele who plays a dozen characters to portray her experiences as an adolescent with the disease that causes an abnormal curvature of the spine. Thanks to the Curvy Girls chapter in Ottawa, the play will hit the stage at Longfields-Davidson Heights Secondary School on Nov. 30. The Ottawa Chapter of the Curvy Girls was founded in

part by Merivale High School student Danielle Denisko. The group meets once a month to discuss everything from what it’s like to wear a hard, plastic brace to medical appointments, surgery and peer pressure. Andrea Lebel, a physiotherapist who went into the field because she dealt with scoliosis as a teen, said the idea for the group came after she met a mother in Barcelona. “Her daughter was part of the Long Island Curvy Girls and she talked so much about the benefits, I realized it would be good if the girls could get support from each other,” Lebel said. Because of the success

22 Kanata Kourier-Standard EMC - Thursday, November 15, 2012

of the Curvy Girls group for teens, there will now be a support group for adults. The play Braced will be shown to LDHSS students and is open to the general public at St. Theresa Hall on Somerset Street West on Dec. 2 at 4 p.m. The public showing is meant to help raise awareness about the disease that Lebel says is as common as asthma. “We don’t have scoliosis screening here in Canada,” she said, adding that means the diagnosis often comes too late for corrective measures like a brace. When that happens, surgery is often the only option. Lebel said the group has already started work on a fund-

“Through the centre, I began to feel like a person again. I can use my skills to help people.” He has held workshops on health and wellness for members of the group. “Through the seniors centre I was able to share my medical knowledge with the centre,” said Yang. Fu Lian Zhe moved to Canada with his wife Aidli Zhang 25 years ago to give their children a better life. “I came to Canada for our children (to) go to university,” said Zhe. The former en-

gineer picked up a job working at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier, where he had the opportunity to serve Queen Elizabeth II. Being a part of the support centre keeps his body strong, he said, because the group organizes different activities, like dancing and ping pong. “Everyone here has a story,” said Ho. Currently, the support centre has around 80 members, but they are looking to add more. As well, the centre is looking for volunteers to help run the programs, such as

English classes, event planning and more. Adele Muldoon has volunteered since the summer, and even though she only speaks English, she said it’s wonderful being able to help. “It’s a lot of fun and very rewarding,” she said. The group meets at various locations in Kanata and Stittsville on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. For more information on the Kanata Chinese Seniors Support Centre, visit KCSSC. org, email kcssc@kcssc.org or call 613-656-2324.

raiser in June and a fashion show for the spring, but the play will provide the public with information about signs and treatment. At the Dec. 2 show there will be pamphlets for the public to learn about some of the signs associated with scoliosis. There is no charge for the tickets, but people are encouraged to bring a donation which will help purchase equipment at CHEO. Lebel said schools interested in having a performance should contact her at curvy girlsottawa@gmail.com.

Braced, the story of New York teen Rebecca Steele’s trials with scoliosis, will hit the stage at LongfieldsDavidson Heights Secondary School on Nov. 30.

Justin Trudeau pitches centrist politics to party faithful Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC news - Justin Trudeau will bring centrist policies back to a divided nation should he win the Liberal leadership, according to a speech he delivered at a party dinner held in the riding last week. A soft spoken Trudeau told about 200 party faithful at the Irish Hills Golf and Country Club event that both the Conservatives and New Democrats are cynically appealing to core voters while demonizing others for political gain. It has meant the electorate is voting against the other

side, not for a positive solutions that will forward the country, said the 41-year-old Montreal-area MP. “That’s not good enough for Canada right now,” Trudeau said. “People say Liberals are crowded out of the political spectrum; that there’s a shrinking sliver for the Liberals. We can raise the level of debate. There’s a lot of room in there.” While offering no specific policy plans, Trudeau talked about it being easy to divide people into various socio-economic classes and regions; that it is much harder to unite a people. He frequently balanced oftused conservative terms like

“hardworking families” with protecting social programs coveted by progressives. “It was always the case that if you worked hard, you could make a better life for yourself in Canada,” Trudeau said. “You could progress and have a chance if you left your persecutions and class divisions back home. That shaped us. If you worked hard you could succeed. “But when winter happens – as it often happens in this country – when winter happens: this country is too big to not lean on each other.” He talked about young people no longer expected to have a better life than their parents, a first in the history of Canada. And he mentioned that more and more seniors enter retirement and poverty at the same time. Both are victims of an ever-increasing wealth gap, he said; the economy recovers, but the ultra-rich are get richer and the working classes fall farther behind. He said polls show Canadians believe we’ve made it through the recession, and that the economy is doing pretty well. But when asked, their families are not doing as well. “This is more than an economic problem,” he said. “When the deal was made, it said if you work hard, level your problems at home, you

Right now we can’t make that deal.” Governments have a positive role to play in bringing wealth back to the vast major-

ity of the population, he said. He blames the Conservatives for the prevalent attitude that government is inept and all politicians are scoundrels. Until the Liberals find a way

to connect with people, to end the decade-long “naval gazing,” the country and party will continue to decline. See LIBERALS, page 26

Liberals must listen to Canadians to find answers: Trudeau Continued from page 24

He said the party doesn’t have all the answers; it will

have to listen to Canadians, particularly pluggedin young people who are making a difference but not

participating in mainstream politics. “That’s not a condemnation of young people. That’s

a condemnation of politicians.” Trudeau took a few shots at Prime Minister Stephen

Harper and Opposition leader Thomas Mulcair, saying both men have silenced their caucus members on the promise of bringing the party more power. He said Harper might be making trade deals with the Chinese but he doesn’t have to run his government the same as theirs. Harper has different messages in English and French, for Bay Street and Main Street, and uses Western wealth as a wedge issue against the East, he said. “A Liberal government will piss all people off equally, if it has to,” he said, drawing laughter from the crowd. “My friends, it is up to us to pull together. We deserve better. Our children deserve better. And our world deserves better.”

BEFORE DINNER

In an exclusive interview before his speech, Trudeau was asked about the relevancy of a party known for carefully managing the economy and maintaining middle-ofthe-road policies in a world that increasingly calls for bold decision-making. Climate change is expected to make the planet life inhospitable for humans, for instance. “That’s why I speak to so many young people,” he said. “We need to have a grown-up

conversation about these issues, not a simple sound-bite answer.” He was asked about the party’s brand. The Liberals are often cited as cosmopolitan elitists, of which he is seen as the poster boy. He conceded that the party has disconnected with a lot of voters who have “drifted away.” But he said that when people see the party’s superior policies – it’s not the economy over the environment as the Conservatives believe, or the environment over the economy as the NDP believes, he said – they will return. The party’s brand is more about substances than style, he said. Among those at the fundraising dinner were city councillors Eli El-Chantiry and Marianne Wilkinson, former local Liberal candidates Megan Cornell and Karen McCrimmon, MPs Hedy Fry and Scott Sims, Senator Jim Munson and party activist Isabel Metcalfe. Among those vying with Trudeau for the top job in the Liberal party are David Merner, David Bertschi, Alex Burton, Deborah Coyne, Jonathan Mousley and Constance Bay’s own Karen McCrimmon. The winner will be announced in Ottawa on April 14.

IF YOU WORK IN ONTARIO, THIS IS YOUR FIGHT. On September 11, 2012, the Ontario Liberal government passed Bill 115, the Putting Students First Act, 2012.

Bill 115 is undemocratic, unconstitutional, and unprecedented. • It takes away the democratic rights of teachers and education professionals to bargain collectively. • It places the government beyond the reach of the Ontario Human Rights Code, the Ontario Labour Relations Act, and even the courts. • It takes local decision-making away from school boards and puts it in the hands of the provincial government. That’s why we’re standing against Bill 115. It sets a dangerous precedent for all Ontarians. In fact, the government has already threatened other public sector workers with similar legislation. As teachers, we teach your children to stand up for their principles. Today, we ask you to do the same.

What can you do to help?

Thousands attend Remembrance Day ceremony Jessica Cunha

jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - Thousands of people gathered at the Kanata Cenotaph on Sunday, Nov. 11, to pay tribute on Remembrance Day. The crowds lined all sides of Colchester Square in Village Green, watching as the members in the parade marched in step to the beat of the drums before lining up in front of the Cenotaph. “I’m glad to see the numbers just from the Kanata area here. It’s certainly a good crowd,” said Ralph Boone, 86. The Katimavik man was in his teens during the Second World War and was in the process of completing officer training when the war ended. A lieutenant in the army cadet corps, Boone was charged with looking after 900 Grade 9 cadets. On Sunday, Boone laid a wreath at the base of the cenotaph on behalf of the Kanata

Seniors Council. “The main thing is to keep remembering,” he said. “We certainly lost a lot of people during the wars. It’s a good idea to keep remembering those people who did die on our behalf.” The Audet family observed the ceremony in memory of their grandfather. “Our grandfather was in World War II,” said 11-yearold Emili Audet, an Orléans resident who attends St. George Catholic School. “It’s a special day for us.” Her grandfather survived the war and would sometimes tell the grandchildren stories, said Alexy Audet, 14, but has passed on. “We like to give thanks,” said Alexy, a Holy Trinity Catholic High School student. Capt. Donald Warner of the Signal Squadron attended the ceremony with his wife Sandra, daughter Emma, 7, and son Jonah, 4. PHOTOS BY JESSICA CUNHA/METROLAND

The Beaverbrook family attends the ceremony “to show our support; that we’re aware of the sacrifices and that our children are aware of the sac-

rifices,” said Sandra. The Kanata branch of the Royal Canadian Legion organized the parade, which included active and retired military personnel, cadets, Girl Guides and Scouts. A number of wreaths were laid at the cenotaph from various groups, schools, organizations and individuals. Neil Minshall sang O Can-

ada and God Save the Queen, Andy Turcotte played the Last Post and Reveille, while The Lament was played by the Highland Mist Pipe Band.

EMC news - On Nov. 11, Operation Veteran will launch its fourth year of operations. Over the past four years, support for the program has grown tremendously to now include schools from all 10 provinces and three territories, a partnership with EF Educational Tours and plans for educational resources that will help relay the history of the First World War, both online and in the classroom. Operation Veteran was founded by Dr. Paul Kavanagh, in association with the Canadian War Museum, after his moving encounter in April 2009 with a Second World War veteran who did not have enough money to pay for soup and a coffee at the Museum cafeteria. “There was a long line-up and people were becoming impatient,” Kavanagh explained. “He was in tears. I had to do something. So I paid for his meal.” Soon afterwards, Kavanagh founded Operation Veteran to ensure that on Nov. 11, no veteran would lack the funds for a meal at the museum. In 2010, thanks to schools’ fundraising efforts and the generosity of private donors, the program was extended to every day the museum is open. To date, more than 3,500 complimentary meals have been served to veterans visiting the Canadian War Museum. “This program contributes significantly to the greater understanding of Canada’s military history,” said James Whitham, director general of the Canadian War Museum. “We are delighted that this initiative is continuing to grow and engage high school students from all parts of Canada in remembrance, including the Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut.” This year, Operation Veteran hosted almost 200 students from across Canada for Remembrance Day ceremonies in Ottawa and a tour of the Canadian War Museum. Junior Rangers from the 3rd Canadian Ranger Patrol Group in northern Ontario joined in on the activities in Ottawa. All expenses of these visits are covered by the participating schools, which also raise funds to support Operation Veteran. EF Educational Tours, a leader in Canadian history tours for students, along with the National Capital Commission, Canadian Accredited Independent Schools and the Royal Canadian Legion have lent their support to Operation Veteran to develop a three-day educational program for participants that includes workshops, lectures and museum tours. Educating young people about Canadians’ debt to our veterans is an important element of Operation Veteran. With the financial support of the program, the Canadian

War Museum will be able to develop educational resources on the First World War that can be accessed by teachers and their students across the country. These resources include sophisticated, curriculum-based, online modules with virtual access to the museum’s important collection of artifacts, images and archives as well as hands-on educational kits containing authentic materials of the type worn, used and created by Canadians who experienced firsthand the realities of the First World War. In the coming year, Operation Veteran will continue to enlist more schools, and provide the funding for educational resources to help students better appreciate the contributions and sacrifices of a generation of Canadians at a formative time in our history.

Rural Para Transpo service hits a bump emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - Six months after making sweeping changes to how disabled people get around by transit in the rural area, many people are wellserved, but some are being left at the curb. Para Transpo partnered with three rural community support service agencies in April to provide trips within rural areas, but in the process cut out people who can’t transfer out of their wheelchairs or scooters into a vehicle. The problem has led at least one Ottawa resident to speculate about filing a human rights complaint, according to Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson. Wilkinson referenced the specter of a human rights case during a transit commission meeting on Oct. 17 “They haven’t sent it in yet, but I have been told by someone that they’re considering it, in that people are giving differential services … based on where they live,” Wilkinson said. Jennifer Lockyer, transportation manager for Rural Ottawa South Support Services (ROSSS), said there’s a gap in the system now that Para Transpo has stopped doing rural-to-rural trips, because the community support services don’t have wheelchair-accessible vehicles. Lockyer said the agreement signed six months ago between the three community support services and OC Transpo provided funding for the agencies in east, west and rural Ottawa to increase transit service for seniors and adults with physical disabilities. However, Lockyer said it was clear the agencies can only serve residents who can transfer independently in and out of vehicles. “That very much was laid out that we can’t provide transportation right now for people in wheelchairs because we don’t have the equipment or the expertise,” Lockyer said. But after the agencies took over rural-to-rural transportation on April 1, Para Transpo stopped providing rural-to-rural trips altogether. Now, rural residents who can’t transfer out of their wheelchair or scooter can only get to appointments using an accessible taxi. Para Transpo offers taxi

discount coupons for its passengers, but the trips are sometimes more expensive than regular Para Transpo service. “We weren’t under the impression (the agreement) was going to replace (Para Transpo), but it kind of did in the end. Para Transpo announced after the fact that they weren’t going to continue their rural-to-rural trips,” Lockyer said. Pat Scrimgeour, manager of transit service planning and reporting, said OC Transpo and the community support service agencies have been discussing ways to provide rural-to-rural transportation for the affected passengers, but said a possible human rights case is not something that’s driving those talks. “We don’t know anything about a human rights claim at

I’m really concerned that they won’t take them to any rural location in Ottawa. I just don’t know how they’re getting there. Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson

all,” Scrimgeour said. Wilkinson said she is glad OC Transpo is looking at the problem, because she agrees the restrictions amount to a human rights issue. “I’m really concerned that they won’t take them to any rural location in Ottawa,” Wilkinson said. “I just don’t know how they’re getting there.” There is no obligation for Para Transpo to provide this type of service for that small number of customers, said Scrimgeour. “We’re looking into how best to accommodate those peoples’ travel needs, but there is no obligation,” Scrimgeour said. “The policy decision taken by the (transit) commission is that Para Transpo service is provided for those trips between rural areas and urban areas,” Scrimgeour said. LEFT BEHIND

Last year, there were fewer than 120 Para Transpo trips

made by 19 customers who must remain in their wheelchair or scooter during the trip between two rural locations, Scrimgeour said. Between 80 and 90 per cent of the trips were made by four Para Transpo customers, he said. “So that’s the total number of people we’re talking about here,” Scrimgeour said. “It’s a small number of people.” Most of the trips are a short distance, including one-third of the trips within the village of Richmond. Those are the types of trips that rack up a lot of mileage on Para Transpo vehicles that must drive out from the urban area to take people several blocks, before driving back into the city. “It’s going to be expensive (to operate),” Scrimgeour said. Another thing to keep in mind is a change to the taxi bylaw that makes it obligatory for cabs to pick up disabled passengers in the rural area. “Certainly, for some of the short trips, that becomes a decent alternative for travelers,” Scrimgeour said. The option of providing a requirement or incentive for rural service providers to offer more accessible, wheelchairfriendly service was discussed, Scrimgeour said, but the city and the agencies decided to go a different route. “We talked about that issue with them,” Scrimgeour said. “Their way of operating – partly with regular cars, partly with vans, partly with volunteers and partly with paid staff – wasn’t adaptable. They didn’t have the equipment needed to move the wheelchairs while they’re travelling. But we’re talking to them about it now. “They, and we, together recognize there is a gap,” he said. Whether that means Para Transpo will return to providing some rural-to-rural trips or the support services will begin to offer wheelchair-accessible service remains to be seen, Lockyer said. Regardless, she said she’s confident the city and the agencies will find a solution. “I’m amazed with the working relationship that we have in the city, and we all see there’s a gap here. It might mean bringing in another partner, but the collaboration has been very open,” she said. Lockyer said the agree-

File

While rural service agencies are now able to provide more trips for mobility-challenged people, a human rights complaint looms due to an inability to transport passengers who must remain in their wheelchairs. ment’s first six months have been successful despite the wheelchair accessibility issue. The agreement transferred $379,515 of Para Transpo’s rural budget to the three agencies – Rural Ottawa South Support Services, the Eastern Ottawa Resource Centre and the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre – to help them increase their service levels. Beginning April 1, the agencies surpassed their target by more than 1,000 new rides, providing an additional 2,512 rides as a result of the city’s funding. The money is covering vehicle maintenance and fuel, as well as extra staff to co-ordinate rides. At the same time, the city put in a flat fare of $8.25 for rural Para Transpo trips. That fare is lower than what passengers would have paid before for almost 94 per cent of rural Para Transpo trips. Previously, fares ranged from $4 to $18.25 depending on the distance between stops. By contrast, an urban Para Transpo trip is $3.25 or $4.25. Lockyer said the agencies are trying to use more agency vans instead of volunteers in personal vehicles, because it’s more efficient. A volunteer driver often only takes one client at a time, whereas a van can take several clients to the same day program at once. This system is also more

efficient than Para Transpo, which rarely consolidated trips with multiple clients in one van. This meant that two or three Para Transpo vans would often all arrive at the same location with one passenger each, instead of having the clients come together. SUCCESSFUL START

Community support services also offer an advantage because they can provide cross-border trips outside the city of Ottawa, Lockyer said. “If you have a client in Osgoode that needs to go to the Winchester hospital, the agencies can do that, where Para Transpo can’t,” she said. But the support services still

face challenges in the next six months of the pilot program. Basic marketing is needed to attract former Para Transpo clients, Lockyer said. The agencies are currently offering a “first ride free” program to entice new clients, and are spreading the word that community support service transit is cost effective. Lockyer said that depending on the mileage, some trips are actually cheaper than using Para Transpo, while long distances can be more expensive. The agencies also have a limited schedule, only operating between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on weekdays, which they are trying to change. Lockyer said they are looking at adding Sunday “church runs.”

Valour Road medals united at Canadian War Museum EMC news - Nearly a century after they were awarded, three Victoria Cross medals â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the highest award for courage in the British Commonwealth â&#x20AC;&#x201C; have made their way to the Canadian War Museum. The medals were awarded to three young Canadian soldiers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Sgt.-Maj. Frederick William Hall, Lt. Robert Shankland and Cpl. Lionel B. Clarke â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for their bravery during some of the fiercest fighting of the First World War. What makes these medals unique among the 71 VCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s awarded during that war was that all three men lived on the same block of the same street in Winnipeg. Subject of a CBC Heritage Minute, the brave actions of the men â&#x20AC;&#x201C; two of whom did not survive the war â&#x20AC;&#x201C; led their community to pressure Winnipeg city council to rename Pine Street to what is now Valour Road. The medals and a synopsis of each manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actions are now contained within the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Royal Canadian Legion Hall of Honour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We decided to put the display in this section because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re focusing not just on the men and the medals, but also on how Winnipeg commemorated their valour,â&#x20AC;? said MĂŠlanie Morin-Pelletier, First World War assistant-historian at the museum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a study of a city honouring its citizens.â&#x20AC;? By the outbreak of the First World War in 1914, Winnipeg had recently undergone a population boom, and many young labourers were quick to enlist for military service. Hall, born in Ireland, was a shipping clerk before enlisting at the onset of war. He was killed by rifle fire at the Second Battle of Ypres in 1915 as he left his trench to rescue a wounded comrade. Clarke, a railroad surveyor, was wounded while singlehandedly defending a captured Somme trench from 20 enemy soldiers. He was killed

by shellfire a month later, in October 1916. Shankland was a creamery cashier before the war. He was commanding a company of men during the Battle of Passchendaele in October 1917 when heavy fire caused a neighbouring battalion to withdraw, leaving him and his men dangerously exposed. Shankland made the dangerous journey back to Allied lines to report the situation before returning to his men to await reinforcements. He survived the war and even re-enlisted as a noncombatant officer during the Second World War. While the death toll on all sides during the First World War was staggering, the resi-

dents of the working-class Winnipeg neighbourhood didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want the service of their neighbours to be forgotten. In 1925, the city of Winnipeg erected a plaque declaring the street would henceforth be named Valour Road. With the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War less than two years away, the new display ends a threeyear initiative by the museum to gather the Valour Road Victoria Cross medals in one place. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our collections people worked closely with the donors, making sure they were comfortable with the idea of donating the medals,â&#x20AC;? said Avra Gibbs-Lamey, spokesperson for the museum.

This is where looking at magazine layouts can be extremely helpful. Many stores sell items that mimic the look of higherpriced items. When copying a designer room, select pieces that are similar, but not necessarily the same brands. Consider shopping at secondhand stores or antique shops for discounted pieces. With a little new fabric or stain, many items can look like new again. Shopping online also may enable shoppers to find items more readily and see how they look in staged rooms. When designing, it never R0091625064

(MS) - Interior designers have a knack for pulling together furniture and accessories to create rooms with widespread appeal. But not every homeowner has the resources to hire a professional to help turn their interior from drab to fab. Fortunately, it doesn’t always take a pro to transform a home’s interior. The key to creating a beautiful room is planning. Designers do it and so should you. Measure the dimensions of the room and create a sketch of the area using graph paper or computer software. Be sure to plot any windows or doors on the drawing so that you will be aware of obstacles. Homeowners unsure of what they want should browse through magazines or pictures on the Web for inspiration. Search for key phrases that describe your design style, such as Tuscan, farmhouse, country, colonial, etc. Then read up on the components of these styles that define it. This will help you select items that fit with the style. Once a particular style has been chosen, create a design board just like the professionals. Cut out swatches of fabric, select paint swatches, find magazine pictures that fit with your goal and arrange them on a piece of poster board. See how the items work together. If you are unsure of colors, see which shades were used in the inspiring picture and determine if it will coordinate with your home. When designing, identify or create a focal point in the room and build off of that. This may be a large window, fireplace, or even the entertainment center if it’s a family room. Place furniture around the focal point and then move outward. It’s also important to keep scale in mind. Large walls or tall ceilings will create plenty of wall space. A small print or wall hanging will be lost in such an area. Be sure to choose furnishings and accessories that fit with the scale of the room. In other words, a huge sectional may overpower a small living room. When choosing colors, make sure they are cohesive. Research the color wheel that artists use to help with designing the room. Some colors are complementary or opposites and still work together. Homeowners nervous about color should choose a color from fabric or furniture and use a few different shades of the same color in the room. Select an accent color that can be used on trim or as a spot of color on a pillow or accessory. When plotting wall hangings or other decor, odd numbers often look more pleasing to the eye. Experiment with different sizes of framed artwork or different shaped accessories for visual appeal. For example, a few rectangular shaped items with a circular clock and a conical flower vase can mix it up in the room.

Safety awards honour city’s extraordinary citizens laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Volunteers from across the city sent a message of collective responsibility for neighbourhood safety during Crime Prevention Ottawa’s annual awards on Nov. 5. Eight groups and individuals were honoured for their contributions to making Ottawa a safer place during the Community Safety Awards. The real-life stories of people who received awards illustrate the importance of crime prevention, said Chantal Bernier, CPO board member and president of the International Crime Prevention Centre. Stories like that of Embellissement Vanier Beautification, winner of the Volunteer Program Award, capture the attention of audiences around the world when she speaks, Bernier said. A recent audience was “truly marvelling” at the reduction in crime in Vanier, Bernier said. “That example shows how Ottawa has the potential, the stature, to be a model for the world.” That kind of mobilization of citizens is key to safety and crime reduction, Bernier said. “Crime prevention is not the best solution; it is the only solution,” she told the crowd gathered at city hall. “A truly safe community is one that has a targeted effort towards crime

prevention.” Awards handed out during the ceremony included: • Youth Leadership Award: Peiman Soltani For the past five years, 24year-old Peiman Soltani has worked with at-risk youth. Through his citywide Ottawa Community Centre Basketball League for Youth and the West End Motivators, Soltani said he tries to “be an older brother” to the youth he works with, like his mentors were for him. Garnering and maintaining the trust of the youth he works with is key, Soltani said. • City Employee Award: Abdulkadar Mohamed Dualeh Abdulkadar Mohamed Dualeh left his home of wartorn Somalia to come to Canada alone at age 13 and immediately began volunteering at the Canterbury community police centre in an effort to become a police officer like his father. Both on- and off-duty, Dualeh has prevented two women from taking their lives and saved a barefoot toddler who was freezing in the snow. He also volunteers at Ottawa Somaliland Community Services. • Ginsberg, Gingras and Associates Business Award: Canadian Tire Jumpstart charities Canadian Tire’s Jumpstart

• Enforcement Professional Award: Const. Khoa Hoang Centretown community police officer Const. Khoa Hoang was nominated three separate times for his work volunteering at 25 local organizations and mentoring youth.

The awards honour people and programs that help prevent crimes and make Ottawa safer. charities have helped children to access recreation and sport programs in Ottawa since 2005. During that time, Jumpstart has helped 40,000 children attend March break and summer recreation programs. The free program helps prevent kids from “falling into the wrong routines,” said Canadian Tire dealer David McClenahan, who accepted the award. • Volunteer Award: Roberta Della-Picca Pinecrest-Queensway resident Roberta Della-Picca’s sons were approached to sell crack cocaine minutes after the family moved into their

Pinecrest-Queensway area home. A decade later, DellaPicca’s contributions to community safety initiatives in her neighbourhood were honoured with a Community Safety Award. Through United Neighbours, Della-Picca and fellow volunteers have achieved a 27 per cent drop in crime between 2006 and 2011 – the largest drop in Ottawa and higher than the citywide average of 15 per cent.

• Volunteer Program Award: Embellissement Vanier Beautification The efforts of the Vanier beautification group have created a prettier, cleaner community that is safer because people feel comfortable enjoying its parks and public spaces, said co-chairwoman Marguerite Beaulieu. • Leadership Award: Paul Welsh Paul Welsh has been the executive director of Rideauwood Addiction and Family Services for 25 years.

Councillor pushing for interprovincial truck plan Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury is unsatisfied with responses he is getting from staff about what the city can do to remove truck traffic from downtown streets if a new interprovincial bridge is built. Before January, the National Capital Commission is expected to announce its preferred option for a new bridge connecting Ottawa to Gatineau. Residents from each of

the proposed corridors – Kettle Island, Lower Duck Island and Gatineau Airport/McLaurin Bay – have expressed concerns about the impact a bridge would have on their community. Heavy truck traffic is at the top of that list. “Once that interprovincial crossing goes in, we expect all the interprovincial trucks to be moved off,” Fleury said. “It’s clear. It’s not just this council now; it’s been previously stated as well.” What remains unclear is what the city is planning to do

to ensure that happens, Fleury said. It’s important to him for that issue to be cleared up now, before it’s too late, and so far he has had no luck getting a clear answer to his questions about truck routes. After an unsatisfactory response to a question he submitted to transportation committee at the beginning of October, Fleury is still hammering away at the question. He sub-

mitted another inquiry on Nov. 7 asking what the city can do to ensure all heavy truck traffic is removed from Chaudière Bridge and the King Edward Avenue, Rideau Street, Waller Street, Nicholas Street truck corridor and onto the potential new bridge. “I don’t care where it’s going to be. To me, it’s about providing a solution. It’s not taking the issues from the Macdonald-Cartier Bridge onto Chaudière Bridge. The new route should be defined and it

should remove the ability for interprovincial truck routes to use King Edward, Champlain and Chaudière (bridges).” Those results aren’t a given without confirming the city’s instructions for what it wants to see happen with truck routes. Fleury expressed frustration in having to re-ask the same question. “It’s weird. So many people have spent so many resources and time and attendance at public meetings to discuss it, and it just hasn’t appeared to

capture any changes,” Fleury said. “I’m hopeful with this I’m awaking at least the city’s piece (of) it. “Let’s get that component clamped (down),” he said. “If we just let it slide, we don’t get it fixed.” As the study drags on, Fleury said he thinks it’s important to keep pushing on certain issues. For him, that issue is truck traffic downtown. “It’s a fundamental question and it seems to be lost under six, seven other priorities. So I want to make sure that’s at the forefront of the report that comes out.”

Are you paying too much for property taxes? You very well may be… Did you know you could appeal your assessment? Well you can! Find out how with…

Property Tax Review Services Services we offer

Industrial Tax Review

Changes in building use can lighten your tax load. Don’t miss your chance to save. What We Do Property Tax Review Services wins fair tax treatment for Ontario property owners. We find, appeal and correct the government errors, inconsistencies and misinterpretations that inflate your tax bill.

Commercial Tax Review

Keep ahead of the taxman with up-to-date forecasting and hassle-free property tax admin.

ABOUT PROPERTY TAX REVIEW SERVICES

How We Do It Our key services for Industrial, Commercial and Residential property owners are Review and Appeal, Assessment Forecasting and Reporting Management.

Property Tax Review Services got its start when founder Glenn Lucas, an Ottawa real estate entrepreneur, began appealing taxes on his own local properties. His previous business experience — in development, management and ownership of residential lots, multi-residential buildings, commercial/industrial sites, shopping centres, malls and retirement homes — made him the right man for the job. And his successes prompted other property owners to ask him to handle their fights for fairness, too.

Assessment Review We conduct a comprehensive review of how tax and assessment officials decided how much tax you pay, then make sure you are given every possible benefit. This process includes: • Documentation - We gather the documents used to determine your tax level. • Verification - Inaccuracies, omissions or inconsistencies in these documents are recorded. • Analysis - Determining how assessors used the documents to draw conclusions. • Appeal Preparation - Identifying grounds for appeal and preparing all required documents. • Appeal Management - Attending to all submissions, correspondence or other paperwork, representing you at any hearings. And keeping you fully informed every step of the way. Assessment Forecasts Developers can design new projects to produce the lowest possible tax assessment, based on our accurate pre-assessment forecasts and expert advice. Avoid tax “surprises”. Reporting Management We manage the paperwork to keep assessment officials up-to-date on your properties, to ensure the best tax rates and head-off any conflicts as property use changes. Municipal Review and Appeal Municipal tax bills are scrutinized to identify errors and unfair interpretations. Tax Demands can be challenged and appeals launched to defend your rights under the Ontario Municipal Act.

He started Property Tax Review Services to meet the demand and now, 28 years later, Glenn represents approximately 6,000 properties throughout Ontario and Quebec. Recognized for the depth of his experience, Glenn was appointed to the 2001 City of Ottawa Task Force on property assessment and property tax issues, reporting to the Ontario government.

Patients spending less time in emergency: Naqvi eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC news - Emergency room wait times at Ottawaarea hospitals have gone down over the past four years. Wait times across the province have been reduced on average by 1.2 hours, and 86 per cent of patients are receiving treatment within target time frames, according to a press release from the Ontario government.

YASIR NAQVI

In Ottawa, between 70 and 94 per cent of patients are assessed and treated within the target wait time. In 2009, Ontario set emergency room length-of-stay targets of four hours for patients with minor conditions and eight hours for patients with complex conditions. At CHEO, time spent in the emergency department has decreased by 27.6 per cent over the last four years, the release

said. About 94 per cent of people received treatment within the target period. Yasir Naqvi, MPP for Ottawa Centre, said CHEO’s emergency room is making good progress in improving performance so they can treat patients better and faster. “I am proud of what our government is doing to help them (CHEO) keep achieving their goals,” said Naqvi. Other hospitals in Ottawa have also seen a significant decrease in wait times. At the Monfort Hospital, time spent in the emergency room has decreased by 52.6 per cent, 19 per cent at the Ottawa Hospital’s General campus and 7.4 per cent at the Queensway-Carleton Hospital. On Nov. 16, Naqvi announced the province will provide area hospitals with $6.5 million to improve emergency room performance, adding that the government was building on its emergency room success to support hospitals facing the biggest challenges. According to Deb Matthews, minister of Health and Long-Term Care, Ontarians requiring medical attention are now being seen faster and spending less time in emergency rooms. “This is part of our commitment in the Action Plan for Health Care to ensure people receive the right care, in the right place, at the right time,” Matthews said in a press release.

Landscaping company pays it forward Jennifer McIntosh

jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

EMC news - When Grant Van den heuvel started his landscaping company, Ace of Blades, 10 years ago one of the first contracts was with the Ottawa Carleton Association for Persons with Development Disabilities. So when he thought about paying it forward, it’s natural that he would want to help the charity that gave the company its start. The purpose of OCAPDD is to support community integration and personal well-being for children and adults with developmental disabilities. They operate several group homes across the city, including one on the property of Silver Spring Farm on Richmond Road, near Bells Corners. “I saw something on the Internet about some guy in Portland who was paying it forward by maintaining a gym anyone could use,” Van den heuvel said.

“People were able to use it for free because of donations and it gave me the idea to raise money for something here that helps people.” The 23-year-old entrepreneur said the reason he chose OCAPDD is because they helped out Ace of Blades. This fall all the landscaping staff volunteered their time selling pumpkins door to door in Barrhaven – where most of the company’s client base lives. The pumpkins, donated by Miller Farm and Saunders Farm, were sold at $6 or $8 apiece and netted $3,000 for the charity. Van den heuvel said he would have liked to get more pumpkins but farmers who were hit by this summer’s drought weren’t able to donate. “We want to get the message across that people should wait for us to get their pumpkins from us,” Van den heuvel said. “It ends up being the same price as from the store and they help a worthy cause.”

LHIN puts cash into local healthcare providers EMC news - Health care in the Ottawa area is about to get an $11.1 million boost aimed at community-level services. The money is meant to address the increased need for home support services due to the aging population and the many health issues that come with it. As well, attention will be paid to those with mental health and addiction issues. The announcement by the Champlain Local Health Integration Network, which is funded through the Ontario Ministry of Health and Longterm Care, was made at the offices of VHA Health and Home Support – one of the many local providers that will see a financial boost. Calling it “wonderful news,” Champlain LHIN chief executive Chantale LeClerc said: “Today’s announcement is about transforming health care as we know it.” The $11.1 million in funding will carry over annually and is expected to reduce pressure on hospitals in terms of wait times and available beds. The Ontario government estimates the number of residents over age 65 will double within 20 years. LeClerc said the funding will allow 3,000 more people to be served by communitylevel health services in the Ottawa region and an enable providers to offer an additional 65,000 hours of health service. “As a former home-visiting nurse, I’ve had the privilege of witnessing how valuable these services are to people,” said LeClerc. “It makes the difference between going to the hospital and being able to stay in your own home.” Ottawa-Orleans MPP Phil McNeely, parliamentary as-

sistant to Health Minister Deb Matthews, mentioned the “pressing need to find and support new ways of delivering health care,” citing the need to make the tax dollars of Ontario residents go further in this regard.

It makes the difference between going to the hospital and being able to stay in your own home. CHANTALE LECLERC, CHAMPLAIN LHIN

This view was echoed by Ottawa-Centre MPP Yasir Naqvi, who was on hand for the announcement. The largest portion of the funding, $7.15 million, will go towards the Champlain Community Care Access Centre, which helps seniors transition from a hospital to their home through a variety of supports. The remaining funds will be divided amongst a long list. Seniors’ service providers, disability support providers, addiction treatment centres and mental health centres and programs stretching from Hawkesbury to Barry’s Bay will all be eligible for funding. Valerie Bishop, executive director of VHA Health and Home Support, spoke of the fear felt not just by the elderly faced with health issues, but by their middle-aged children. “When suddenly you

A personal support worker

aids them in their home life, while a support program allows her husband to have two stimulating day trips each week. The time allows Gowenlock to recharge her batteries

and accomplish domestic duties. “We’ve been really fortunate to have support; without it I don’t know what kind of a pickle we’d be in,” she said. “For us it really means he

can stay at home longer…and in the meantime he is happy to be at home and we are happy to have him at home. “With help and support we can carry on and have a reasonable quality of life.

Above, Sharon Davies shows off a classy combination as she walks the runway during the event.

ENTREPRENEURSHIP WEEK This week is Global Entrepreneurship Week and many different events have taken place to support those in our communities who are undertaking to start new businesses in Ottawa. I was happy to participate in the launch of In-TAC (International Talent Acquisition Centre).

EMC news – Christmas is supposed to be a time for joy, celebration and family. But if you’re grieving the death of a loved one, Christmas can be one of the most difficult hurdles of the year. For two months, cheery Christmas tunes blare in every shop; advertisements promote a shoptill-you-drop mentality; and family traditions and expectations weigh heavily on the grieving person. Grief educator and life coach Ian Henderson hopes to offer some tools and techniques to survive the holidays, with his Grief and the Holidays workshop at St. John’s Anglican Church on Sandhill Road on Dec. 1. The seminar is offered from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., and is open to anyone who is grieving. Henderson said it offers a hands-on safe space where people can vent their frustrations and emotions. “Christmas is the most stressful time of the year already. But when Christmas comes and you’ve had a loss, people can’t get away from it. It’s everywhere they go and they don’t always have someone to talk to and share their feelings with,”

Henderson said. He said the workshop gives people some perspective on the holiday season while they’re grieving – particularly that they shouldn’t feel obligated to celebrate the way they used to. “You’re not the same person as you were last year, because your loved one has died. You’re not who you were and you’re not who you’re going to be, and we need to look at how to get through that,” Henderson said. That might mean putting traditions on hold. Perhaps you don’t want to put up a Christmas tree this year, or cook a turkey, Henderson said. The people who have relied on your shortbread for the last 40 years can wait until next year, he suggested. “Grief is the most tiring thing you’ll ever have happen to you. It totally drains your energy. You may be in no way spiritually, cognitively, or physically able to cope with the holidays this year,” he explained. “Maybe for one year you suspend some traditions. Do what you can, but do it in moderation.” To achieve this, the grieving person must manage their family’s expectations. “You need to tell (your family) what your needs are, and not feel like you have to buck up,” Henderson said. Pressure to ‘move on,’ ‘get over it’ or that your loved one ‘wouldn’t want you to cry’ can add to an already stressful time of the year, he added. Henderson said his workshop will also teach people how to give conditional answers to holiday invites, because a person who is grieving may not feel up to socializing on the day of an event. “You can say, ‘Based on how I’m feeling today I’d love to go, but there are days I may not be able to function. I may get halfway to your house and need to turn around,’” Henderson said. Henderson began offering his holiday grief workshop about three years ago, when he noticed a gap in the city’s bereavement options. He said many organizations, support groups and funeral homes offer remembrance services for families to honour their loved ones during the holiday season, but there were few to no outlets for people to share what they are going through. Henderson has been a grief educator for about six years, after graduating from the Centre for Loss in Fort Collins, Colorado. In the end, Henderson wants his participants to walk away with a “proper perspective on expectations” for the holidays, as well as some hope. “Always, the anticipation is worse than the day,” he said. Henderson will offer another workshop at the St. John’s Anglican Church on Fowler Street in Richmond on Sunday, Dec. 2 from 2 to 4 p.m. To contact Henderson or for more information, email info@griefsupportottawa.ca.

Lions Club helps grieving parents remember Jennifer McIntosh

of any programs at CHEO following the treatment of her youngest grandson when he was just four weeks old. “When we were approached we thought it was a wonderful opportunity to help families through a very difficult time,” she said. Each box is specially handcrafted for the family. Lebano said it gives dignity to the death of a child and helps par-

ents, siblings and relatives to grieve and to heal. “It represents something tangible for loved ones to treasure and to share with others,” she said. Now the Lions Club is looking to the community for help. They will host a family bowling fun day at the Merivale Bowling Centre on Merivale Road south of Hunt Club

Road. The fun day is set for Nov. 25 starting at 1 p.m. Entry is $25 and includes shoes and snacks. All proceeds will be donated to CHEO for the creation of more memory boxes. Lebano said people who would like to attend and not bowl can pay a discounted entry fee of $10. To reserve teams, contact Doreen Lebano at 613-825-0384.

Choral society offers early Christmas concert Ineke de Jong

Kanata Choral Society

EMC entertainment Although the advent season, followed by Christmas, does not start until the first Sunday of December, the Kanata Choral Society wants to shorten the waiting period by performing a lovely concert. Johann Sebastian Bach’s (1685-1750) music comes to mind during this period. Bach wrote many chorales for the Lutheran liturgy of which Cantata 140, Sleepers Wake! will be performed by the Kanata Choral Society. This cantata was written for mixed choir, soprano, tenor and bass soloists. Its performance will take place on Saturday, Nov. 24, starting at 7:30 p.m. at St. Paul’s Anglican Church, 20 Young Rd. The soprano role will be sung by Judith Vachon, who has appeared regularly with the Kanata Choral Society. Vachon is a private voice teacher in Kanata and has been on CBC radio, performed with Opera Lyra for

many years and has done extensive solo work throughout the region. Kieran Foss, a tenor, has previously performed with the Kanata Choral Society and is a third year vocal student of Professor Sandra Graham at the University of Ottawa. He has performed as a soloist with several choral groups. Kyle Merrihew, bass, is a fourth-year student at the University of Ottawa and studies with Yoriko Tanno. Recently he sung the role of Schaunard in the Capital City Opera’s 2012 production of La Boheme and the title role in the University’s 2012 production of Don Giovanni. The concert will be under the baton of Scott Auchinleck, the choir’s music director. Piano accompaniment will be provided by Barbara Creelman and Sarah Williams, violin. Sarah Williams is a fourthyear student in the bachelor of music in performance at the University of Ottawa

with David Stewart. She was a member of the National Youth Orchestra, substitute member of the Thirteen Strings, National Arts Orchestra and a member of the Ottawa Symphony. Tickets for this concert are available at Domenic’s Music, 444 Hazeldean Rd.; CD Warehouse, at all locations or at the door. There will be a silent auction, to which everybody is invited. The doors will be open for viewing at 7 p.m. Unfortunately, we cannot accept credit cards. The members of the Kanata Choral Society thank the local merchants who contributed items for the silent auction. The price of admission is $18 in advance for adults and $20 at the door and $15 for seniors and students 13 and older. There will be a reception after the concert in the church hall. For more information, please phone 613-592-1991 or visit www.kanatachoralsociety.ca.

Mill bazaar offers artistic twist Emma Jackson

emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas, and Watson’s Mill is embracing the holiday season with a new sense of artistic flair. The historic grist mill in Manotick has added a fine art sale to its annual three-weekend Christmas bazaar beginning on Saturday, Nov. 17, which will run every Saturday and Sunday until Dec. 2. Along with the regular craft items and baked goods sold in the mill, each day up to eight artists will sell their art ranging from oil paintings to ceramics in the Carriage Shed across the street. Judy Miller is a Kanata textile artist, and she will be selling her work on Dec. 1 and 2. She creates small framed pieces made from painted cotton and embroidery. She paints her desired image onto a piece of cotton, and then uses a free form embroidery machine to sew the pattern on top. It creates a 30 cm by 15 cm piece packed with colour and texture, she said. “It’s just like a little gem. It’s something small enough that it’s not a huge investment,” Miller said. “You can

look at it again and again and see something different.” The roster of artists participating in the fine art sale will change each day, said the mill’s administrative assistant Melanie Parker, who organized the event. Some will show all three weekends, while others will be there for only one.

Whatever you’re looking for, basically you’ll find it here. Melanie Parker Show organizer

Parker said the art sale takes the bazaar to a whole new level. “Whatever you’re looking for, basically you’ll find it here,” she said. The bazaar is worth checking out simply for its unique set-up, she added. “I think it’s (set apart by) the variety of stuff we have to offer, and the uniqueness of

the building that it’s set in,” Parker said. Watson’s Mill hosted a much smaller version of the art sale last year, but it wasn’t well promoted and was not nearly as elaborate as this year’s plans. In the mill itself, bazaar vendors will sell everything from goats’ milk to homemade crafts to baked goods. “Everything is supposed to be homemade, that’s the general concept,” Parker said. “You’re getting stuff homemade that you wouldn’t find in the store.” She said this year’s 25 to 30 vendors who will fill the mill from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day draw from across Ottawa. On Sunday, Dec. 2 the bazaar will wrap up with carols at sunset from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. The Manotick Brass Ensemble will lead the hour of music and fellowship.

QuickStart founder recognized with medal Autism advocate and mother touted as a ‘miracle worker’ for her efforts EMC news - Senator Jim Munson called his friend, Suzanne Jacobson, founder of QuickStart, a “miracle worker” as he presented her with a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal. Jacobson received the medal during a sold out fundraiser for QuickStart – which raised $26,000 – at RARE Restaurant in Kanata last month. Jacobson became an advocate for early intervention for autism when it was suspected her grandson Alex had autism. At the time, Alex was 18 months old and the family waited just under a year for a diagnosis, and longer for direction and assistance with how to help Alex develop. Jacobson and her husband had the financial resources to pay for Alex’s treatment; however she realized there was a huge void in the system where children were missing an opportunity to receive therapy and support as soon as their parents suspected they had developmental delays due to autism. When Jacobson learned the importance of early intervention in the treatment of autism, she set about creating an organization where parents could receive free advice on what they could do to help their children during critical developmental periods. Jacobson started by asking the Ottawa Children’s Treatment Center to partner with her. She approached various professionals to provide information to parents, and she has diligently pursued donations, advisers, volunteers, and corporate sponsors in her quest to provide much needed help to parents of autistic children.

In addition to all the information and advice parents can access through QuickStart, Jacobson has started a respite program so parents can get a night away to have some time alone. She has approximately 20 local hotels on board that donate rooms and sometimes meals to give parents of autistic children a well deserved break.

She has been invited to share her knowledge with other provinces who wish to emulate the success of her business and she continues to improve the lives of numerous families whose children have autism. Jacobson is a woman determined to give every parent concerned about their child the opportunity to access the services of QuickStart and she has achieved amazing success. According to the federal government, autism affects “as many as one in every 150 children.”

EMC news - A “rink of dreams” in Jules Morin Park is set to become a reality. The plan for a new, National Hockey League-sized

outdoor rink in the Lowertown park has been in the works since early 2011, when the Ottawa Senators Foundation announced its intention to help build the community rinks. Now, the city has committed to the program by putting $200,000 in management costs towards helping the foundation develop a number of the rinks around the city. In addition to Lowertown, the foundation is already looking at other areas like Bayshore, Overbrook/McAr-

thur, Ledbury Park (Herongate/Ridgemont), Centretown, Navan and Cumberland. Work on Jules Morin Park is already underway and is expected to continue into the new year. The upgrades will include an asphalt base with paint markings, rink boards, endzone fencing and nets. In the summer, the court lines painted on the asphalt could be used for other sports such as basketball, lacrosse and ball hockey. The foundation expects it will cost $250,000 to build each rink. That would mean a total of $2 million in new park infrastructure, so the city’s contribution of $200,000 represents 10 per cent of that commitment. Contributing that money is part of the foundation’s goal of promoting physical activity, recreation and social development in local communities, according to a city report. “Those kids in those neighbourhoods, they really don’t have a lot of additional funding within their families to get out and participate in sport and reaction opportunities,” Danielle Robinson, president of the foundation, said last year. “The idea around this is to provide a facility and the resources to make it much more acces-

The Sens Foundation is now building on the initiative by constructing neighbourhood ‘rinks of dreams.’ sible.” The city hopes to partner with other local organizations, such as Canadian Tire’s I Love to Play Hockey and I Love to Skate initiatives, to offer programs, lessons and special events such as tournaments and carnivals

at the new rinks. Special events involving the Ottawa Senators are also planned, including visits from the players, skating and hockey events, clinics and practices. The community rinks are the second part of the foun-

MVP scores 11 touchdowns as West Carleton takes title West Carleton Wolverines

EMC sports - The West Carleton Wolverines mosquito football team, with several players from Morgan’s Grant, has made history. The team of 11- and 12year-olds became the first from West Carleton to win an Ottawa area A cup football title on Nov. 4, with a 70-59

shootout win over the Nepean Redskins. Hayden Tripp of Arnprior, who scored an amazing 11 touchdowns, won the MVP award for the Wolverines. There was a great spectator support for the Wolverines at the Sunday morning game at the Millennium Field in Cumberland. The Wolverines had upset in the regular season. The Wolverines club was formed in 1993 by Bud McCrae. Many of its players have gone on to star in high school football.

The West Carleton Wolverines celebrate winning the Gilchrist Cup, the first time a West Carleton team has ever won the mosquito A cup title.

Minwaashin Lodge secures major funding

michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Minwaashin Lodge received a major boost in funding from a local consulting firm. The funds will help more women who use its programming get the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the workforce. Minwaashin accepted a grant of US$100,000 from Accenture, a management and consulting firm on Nov. 8. The money is expected to help fund three programs at the lodge, all of which are for aboriginal women who have been affected by violence. The company will also provide volunteer resources and programming for aboriginal women. “We are tremendously fortunate to have partners helping us improve supports for aboriginal women in our community,” said Irene Compton, program manager at Minwaashin. “Our clients appreciate the commitment by Accenture employees to offer their time,

TARGETING COMMUNITIES

The grant is part of United Way Ottawa’s targeted community investment fund program. The United Way worked in consultation with the Ottawa Aboriginal Coalition, an alliance of aboriginal organizations, which identified the Minwaashin Lodge as the agency for the grant. The United Way’s community campaign co-chairs, Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury and Angie Poirier attended the event. “This is a great example of how United Way works with organizations to achieve their business and corporate social responsibility objectives to address a specific need in our community,” Fleury said. “We create partnerships, mobilize support and combine efforts with partners like

Minwaashin and Accenture to help make change happen in Ottawa.” The United Way will act as liaison between Minwaashin and Accenture, reporting the results of the partnership as well as oversee the funding investment on behalf of Accenture. Minwaashin client Kateri Miles heard about the lodge’s programs through a friend, and was eager to learn employment skills. She signed up for the employment readiness program. “I never thought I would be where I am today, it is a total gift,” Miles said. Since attending the program, Miles has decided to go back to school to become a social worker. “It’s great news,” Miles said. “For me, this is a very positive time. The fact that the lodge will be improving what it already has, making more programs available here, it is so positive.” In the past Accenture has participated in the United Way’s employee giving campaign. This new contribution will allow the company’s employees the opportunity to work and share their skills with Minwaashin’s clients. “This is an important opportunity for our people at Accenture, and by sharing their skills, they will instantly see the impact they are having on the lives of people in Ottawa.” said Mark Lambert, Accenture managing director.

resources and skills to help them succeed.” Minwaashin provides support to First Nations, Inuit and Métis women who are survivors of violence and the residential school system. Prior to the funding from Accenture, the lodge did run programming geared towards finding employment, healing circles, counselling and self-esteem and confidence activities. This funding will give the organization the opportunity to upgrade its employment program.
