Glen Cairn family delivers Christmas miracles Hampers of gifts, food donated to more than 50 families Jessica Cunha

EMC news - A Glen Cairn family delivered Christmas miracles to more than 50 families over the holidays. Two basement rooms in the Larson household were full of toys wrapped in holiday paper and gift bags filled with items to put a smile on a child’s face. The refrigerator and freezer were loaded full of Christmas foods set to be delivered to families throughout Ottawa and the Valley on Dec. 22 and 23. “The big message is it’s all about helping other people,” said Meggan Larson, mother to 14-month-old Micah and two-year-old Abby. Larson and her husband Rob first came across the idea to provide hampers last Christmas after seeing posts on Kijiji – a website where people can list items to sell or things they need. People were offering holiday dinners or gifts to those who were unable to afford such items. The Larsons jumped on board

and provided two dinners and gifts for four families in 2011. This year, they have Christmas dinner baskets for 40 families, gifts for 50 families and 10 of those will receive extra food items to help them into the new year. “I wasn’t expecting it to get too big,” said Larson. “By October, it just really started blowing up.” The family teamed up with Ottawa Innercity Ministries, an organization that deals with homelessness, poverty, advocacy, social and biblical justice, panhandling, selfesteem, street youth, addictions, and mental health. The Larsons gave the organization 20 gift bags for adults and 18 for youths. “They were totally blown away,” said Larson. “They said this was the first time anyone wanted to help the youth specifically. They were really excited.” They posted their other offerings on Kijiji and the emails started flooding in. Among those who would

receive gifts and food include a family of 11 who just immigrated to Canada, and a single mother who only asked for clothes and food for her children. Other families were referred and didn’t know they’d receive hampers. COMMUNITY EFFORT

The Larsons began collecting food, toys and funds in August to provide hampers and gifts to needy families after receiving help themselves. Meggan Larson had been diagnosed with cancer earlier this year. Now finished her treatments, Larson wanted to give back in a bigger way. “I don’t think it would have gotten this big if I hadn’t gone through cancer this year,” said Larson, adding people got to know her when a group of Kanata mothers helped raise funds and items for her family when she couldn’t work. The family chose to distribute the gifts and food items themselves because there are too many restrictions when going through an organization, said Larson. Every tag says “Love Jesus” because their faith plays a big role in the family’s life.

Jessica Cunha/Metroland

Meggan Larson stands in one of two rooms in her Glen Cairn home filled with gifts for families in need. The Larsons put together hampers for more than 50 families. “I just have such a solid relationship with Him,” said Larson. “I wanted Him to get the credit … I just wanted people to know how much He loves them.” She added people of all faiths have helped organize and distribute the hampers. “We’re helping all sorts

of faiths,” she said. “It’s for whoever’s in need.” Around 20 people are helping deliver the hampers to families throughout Ottawa, including to people in Kars, Orléans and Arnprior. “It’s such a community effort,” said Larson. “It’s nice to see everyone come togeth-

er.” She added it’s easy to get in the giving spirit during the holidays but it’s something that needs to happen all yearround. “We’re just helping as many people as we can,” said Larson. “We wanted to be a message of hope.”

Board OKs plan to address overcrowding Continued from page 5

• On April 16, the city’s library board approved $140,000 for the Hazeldean branch of the Ottawa Public Library to become the first branch to feature radio frequency identification (RFID) tags to track books. Instead of using bar codes that must be scanned manually, the RFID tags send out a signal that allows books and other materials to be tracked automatically when they are checked out and leave the library branch and when they are returned. • Recreational players and former pros in the National Hockey League and Canadian Women’s Hockey League laced up their skates to participate in Hockey Helps the Homeless Ottawa at the Bell Sensplex on April 20. • The Ottawa-Carleton District School Board approved a plan to address chronic overcrowding in Kanata schools on April 24.

The board also approved construction of a new elementary school in Kanata north and changes to Glen Cairn Public School, making

it an intermediate school for grades 7 and 8 students starting in 2013. • For the second time in four months, a capacity crowd turned out to voice opposition to a proposal to build a highrise apartment on Teron Road and The Parkway in Kanata. About 200 people filled the hall at the Mlacak Centre on April 30 to openly express displeasure with a proposed zoning by-law amendment application to make way for a nine-storey apartment complex.

• Disney star Jasmine Richards was at Earl of March Secondary School on May 7 to perform her single You Have the Power to Earl of March and A.Y. Jackson students. Richards is known for her roles in Camp Rock and Naturally Sadie. • A Quebec man dressed as a knight and his horse visited the children at the Kanata Montessori School in Glen Cairn on May 11.

A civic wish list for the new year


ather than looking back at the year that was, let’s look ahead to what lies in store for the city of Ottawa and its residents in the coming 12 months. Yes, there were significant events in the history of this city last year – the Lansdowne Park court decisions and the approval of the light rail plan stand out as two of the biggest – but with those things in the past, what does the turning of the calendar

year have in store for us? If we had our way, here are a few things that we think everyone living here can agree would be good for the capital. With any luck, the Ontario Liberal party will wrap its leadership contest up in due course and recall the legislature as soon as possible in the new year, allowing the entire province to get on with the business of rejuvenating Ontario. Between labour conflicts, questionable

conduct by elected officials, troubled government agencies and a stagnant economy, there is too much that needs to be sorted out at Queen’s Park for the prorogation to last much longer. Speaking of labour strife, we hope the Ministry of Education and teachers’ federations can come to an agreement that allows for our children to receive the education they deserve under conditions that allow government to rein in the

deficit while respecting the collective bargaining rights of teachers. That’s a tough task considering the current climate, but it’s the challenge at hand. Closer to home, Ottawa needs to finally move forward with the Presto program or move on. A system that makes the most of existing technology to ensure maximum convenience for transit riders while minimizing cost and increasing efficiency for OC Transpo is

what we expect. If Metrolinx, the provincial agency behind Presto, can’t deliver this type of system, the city needs to find someone who can. With the city’s Official Plan up for review, now is the time to bring the preamalgamation patchwork of zoning bylaws under one roof, making planning easier for staff and the rules easier to understand for developers and residents alike. When it comes to transparency, the city needs to prove its commitment to openness by being upfront about projects such as the temporary parking lot on

Lees Avenue. Over the fiveplus years it’s expected to take to finish the LRT project this isn’t going to be the only temporary measure the city will need to take, but it can surely do so in a more transparent way. There are other things we’d like to see, too: the return of professional hockey to the ice at Scotiabank Place, more work to make Ottawa one of North America’s most cyclingfriendly city and the genesis of planning for Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017. We accomplished much as a city in 2012. Let’s keep up the good work in 2013.


A bit of perspective for 2012 CHARLES GORDON Funny Town


n the midst of all this seasonal joy and hilarity and sing-songing and retrospecting, there is a constant need for perspective, an imperative to bring us back to earth. With that in mind, this is exactly the right time to present the Worst Ideas of 2012, with a special emphasis on the National Capital Region. 1. A casino for downtown. What more needs to be said? Negligible contribution to the economy, if any, social problems galore. The truly classy cities of the world shun casinos. It would be nice if we could be among them. Think how it would improve the life, not to mention the image of the city, if downtown got a new library instead of a new casino. 2. Two-tier recess. This one might have gone unnoticed if not for coverage in the Citizen. Some elementary schools are adopting a plan under which special programs are available at recess for children whose parents fork over the money. Can you imagine any responsible educator even looking once at such a program? The kids with less money stand and watch the kids with more money have fun? The reason we have public schools is so that every child can receive the same level of education. If these programs are that good, the school boards should pay for them and make them available to all. Either that or ditch the idea altogether. 3. Robocalls, political or otherwise. It’s bad enough that they have been allowed to intrude into elections, but even without that it’s bad. Why should machines be allowed to disturb us in our homes? It’s bad enough that telemarketers interrupt our dinners, but at least these are

human beings earning a meagre wage. Ban the robocalls. If we are to be called, let a human being do the dialing, for Pete’s sake, and pay him some money. 4. Social media — or, more precisely, talking about social media. Facebook, Twitter and whatnot are either going to survive or not. Who knows? But do the mainstream media have to be so fixated on them, as if they were as newsworthy as war, starvation or, more to the point, climate change? A related bad idea in the mainstream media is treating Twitter feeds as if they were news. Nobody cares about somebody’s 140 characters and, as we’ve seen in recent tragic events, they are often horrendously wrong. 5. Siri. Hey, you can talk to you phone and tell it what to do. You can tell it to play you a samba or call your uncle. You can ask your phone where the nearest sushi is. What a contribution to mankind. Think of the useful products that could be coming out of our economic system, think of the serious problems our economic system could be solving if it wasn’t expending all its creative energy on phones. 6. Condos. Enough already. Our city needs at least some small houses, small stores. We’re losing them every day as new condos rise, ever higher. The arguments for intensification are familiar to us all. But this is getting too intense. Since this a complicated world, we must take account of some ideas that are iffy. They may be good, they may be bad. We’ll just have to wait and see. In this category we would place such things as postal delivery changes, every-other-week garbage pickup and additional lanes on the Queensway. We shouldn’t omit thoughts of the best ideas of the year. There were some. As always, the NCC Christmas lights were gorgeous downtown, although perhaps a bit cut back, in the Scrooge-ish spirit of the times. The Rink of Dreams at City Hall is terrific. Check it out at night if you haven’t seen it. By year’s end it will have accommodated more skaters than the National Hockey League. And finally, here’s a good idea that not everyone expected: light rail.

It’s easy becoming green with eco-stores BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse secret of its success. Here’s why: boutique green stores are just that -- boutique stores. They are destination locations, often found in small, walkable neighbourhoods in the city. And no offense, but they’re not exactly mainstream. The people that have committed their lives to opening an eco-friendly baby store in Westboro or a natural food store in the ByWard Market – and their customers – are fringe groups. But Terra20 brings green into the mainstream. It is a distraction for the Ikea shopper – you know, the 95 per cent of us who consume

cheap plastic goods made in China because we feel we have no choice. This is why, my friends, it may just make the biggest leap in green since the blue box program was introduced in the 1980s. A few weeks ago, I saw an interview with Jon Dwyer on TVO’s The Agenda. The chief executive of Flax Energy in Toronto, Dwyer is another green entrepreneur who sees the value of not reinventing the wheel when it comes to making a transition to a green new world. Flax Energy makes about six different products out of flax seeds, everything from animal food to flax diesel.

The beauty of it is you don’t need a special vehicle or a modified tank to use Flax Energy’s fuel product. Any vehicle that runs on diesel can use flax diesel instead of regular diesel. Dwyer said the goal was to find and manufacture a green alternative to petroleum without asking consumers to change the way they consume. That means selling the product from a privatelybased firm – without government subsidies paid for by taxpayers – and selling the product at the same price as the product it’s replacing. Normally, when it comes to green, says Dwyer, “we’re

asking people to change their habits. But if you really want something to be sustainable, it has to mimic the item it’s replacing. Our business is fundamentally predicated on the economics of oil. “It’s probably the best economic model in history,” he said. As Dwyer tells it, flax, like petroleum, has one input and multiple outputs. There’s lots of it available and when his company is harvesting flax, it’s using combines running on its own flax diesel, and shipping those seeds by trucks running on, you guessed it, flax diesel. The hardest thing in the

world is to change human behaviour. Dwyer knows it, and Steve Kaminski at Terra20 knows it too. They want to change the world, but they know the only way that will happen is if they can encourage consumers to change without making them feel like they have to sacrifice something to get there.

Have your say!

It’s a sign that you should get out of your lease.



y husband and I set out for a trip to Pinecrest Mall. Destination: Ikea. But we got distracted. There’s a new store in town called Terra20. It calls itself the first of its kind in the world. Founded by Ottawa entrepreneur Steve Kaminski, Terra20 is an eco-friendly department store. If you live in Ottawa, you no longer need to rely on boutique shopping for eco-friendly baby items on the one hand and household cleaners on the other. Terra20 has everything from clothing to shampoo to stationary under a single roof. The worst thing about Terra20 is that it is a big box store, primarily accessible by car. It is a paradox – telling people to consume responsibly, while providing everything in mass quantities. At the same time, Terra20’s decision to mimic the big box model will likely be the

Kanata Dragons take flight near Morgan’s Grant Recreational youth soccer club to be run at Richcraft Recreation Complex Blair Edwards

EMC news - A new youth soccer club in Kanata will hold its first season starting next May. The National Capital Industrial Soccer League this week announced the creation of the Kanata Dragons Athletic Club for recreational players between the ages of four and 18. The Dragons will play on outdoor fields in Kanata used by the NCISL next year and use the 100-metre by 60-metre outdoor artificial-turf field at the Richcraft Recreation Complex starting in 2014 when the recreation centre, now under construction, opens. “It’s the first (outdoor) artificial turf that we have in Kanata,” said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson. “We’re really, really pleased that we’re going to have the permanent field because they’re putting the money in the recreation complex to pay the difference between a grass field and artificial turf and for the lighting that goes with it.” During its first year, the club expects to register up to 1,000 players, playing on 70

teams. The soccer league has invested $720,000 to secure a 10-year lease on the use of the outdoor soccer field at the recreation centre; the city will be responsible for maintaining the field. “We have room for over 1,000 (players) using existing NCISL fields,” said Tim Baigent, president of the NCISL. “When the turf field becomes available we’ll be able to increase that to 1,600.” The field will have outdoor lights allowing play until 11 p.m. every night, with youth using the field until 8 p.m. and adults from 8 to 11 p.m. “(The NCISL) get the last three hours of the day, that’s a benefit to us,” said Baigent. The NCISL plans to contact local corporations to sell naming rights for the artificial field for a 10-year period, advertising on the field’s fence and hold soccer camps run by the Dragons to help pay its investment. The field will have bleachers with a seating capacity of 100 people. According to the city, an artificial field allows for more than 2,000 hours of use per

The Richcraft Recreation Complex will be the future home of an outdoor artificial-turf field to be used by the Kanata Dragons, a youth recreational soccer club run by the National Capital Industrial Soccer League. year compared to the estimated 300 hours available on a grass field. “It’s like the equivalent of building five new grass fields,” said Baigent. The city will use the money to upgrade the field from grass to artificial turf. The first year of the agreement the NCISL will receive approximately 500 hours and the city will rent the rest – an

estimated 1,500 hours-plus – to other clubs and teams. The agreement requires the NCISL to offer a program for youth, but it was unable to partner with existing leagues such as the West Ottawa Soccer Club. “We never intended to run youth soccer, but we were unable to convince other clubs to participate in the investment,” said Baigent. “In the end we

were forced … to create our own youth soccer organization.” The Kanata Dragons will use the indoor gymnasium at the Richcraft Complex to allow children to participate in a variety of other sports such as basketball, volleyball and general fitness classes. The cost to register a child with the Kanata Dragons will range from $99 to $139, de-

pending on the player’s age, said Baigent. Baigent said there will be some overlap with the programs offered by the West Ottawa Soccer Club, adding the Dragons had no plans to field competitive teams. “We’ve tried not to overlap as much as we can,” said Baigent. The league will introduce the Dragons during an open house at the Bell Sensplex on Jan. 4 starting at 6 p.m., when it will invite children to suggest a name for the club’s dragon mascot. The NCISL is an adult-only soccer league started in 1980 and plays on fields across the city including those at Mitel Networks Corp., Alcatel-Lucent, Insmill Park, Roland Michener Public School and Earl of March Secondary School. The recreational league offers indoor and outdoor programs and has more than 1,800 players. In 2005, the NCISL started an indoor league using the field at the Bell Sensplex; it has grown to include 33 clubs and 70 teams. For more information about the Kanata Dragons visit

Saturday night house party a way of life


hat was left of the Christmas tree, was dragged out to the back of the woodshed. Standing in the kitchen, in the farthest corner, away from the Findlay Oval, was not enough to save the sprigs of the Spruce tree, most of which had been swept up and fed into the fire box. The decorations, loops of silver rope, saved year after year, the clip-on candle holders, which always terrified Mother, so sure was she the whole place would go up in smoke, and the few felt animals we attached to the branches, were finally wrapped in issues of the Renfrew Mercury and packed away for another year. It was time to get back to the Saturday night house parties. In the summer time, most of the community activities centred around the church, but in the winter,

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories socializing was done in the homes. I loved the Saturday night house parties. No formal invitations were necessary, and it was beyond me how anyone knew where the party was being held. My much older, and wiser sister Audrey said she was sure Central would simply start ringing everyone who had a phone, and told them where the next party was taking place. At that time in my life, I thought that was a perfect explanation. Of course, the house had to be cleaned from top to bot-

tom too. Even the bedrooms upstairs had to be readied... that’s where the youngest of us ended up. Neighbours started coming early in the evening. Horses and sleighs lined up in the yard. Enough food would be brought to feed half of Renfrew County. Sandwiches filled 11 quart baskets which had been lined with spanking clean flour bag tea towels. These were of the simplest kind...roast pork and beef, and egg salad. Canned salmon was unheard of. Anyone who wanted to be

real fancy, brought bologna, which was my very favourite. Before anyone arrived, Mother would have the big shiny kettle boiling and at least two white aluminum tea pots simmering with green tea on the back of the stove. Of course, there were no clothes closets, so the coats were piled on the nearest bed. It always amazed me that no one went home wearing some else’s coat. Around the kitchen stove, galoshes and rubber boots were kept warm for the trip home. At our house the baking table was moved into the parlour for euchre and another game was always going on around the old pine table in the kitchen. There was much pounding of fists, loud laughing, and frivolity at both tables, and I often wondered if they took the game as seriously as I thought they did.

United Way campaign nearing goal Steph Willems

EMC news - Even in these lean times it seems the gift of giving hasn’t lost its lustre. Ottawa’s annual United

Way Campaign passed the $24 million mark last week on its way towards a $30 million fundraising goal. The number is significant, considering that for the past two years monies raised have fallen just shy of

the campaign goal. Help meet that goal, the United Way has extended the campaign period to the end of March, the first time in its history it has gone beyond the traditional 10-week period.

As well this year, an online store was launched where people can donate in someone’s name as a gift, while the service sends them a personalized message. “This is a great idea for

And music filled the house. Uncle Alec Thom would bring his fiddle, Mother would take her mouth organ out of its blue velvet box, Father would grab two spoons, one of the Beam boys would tune up his guitar, and there was always someone ready to call for a ‘square’. The youngest of us would be upstairs in a bedroom playing Parcheesi, or Jacks, and as the night wore on, it wasn’t unusual for five or six of us to stretch out crossways on a bed and fall asleep. When the Saturday night house party was at a neighbour’s home, and I was one of the ones bedded down, it was a mystery to me how I would wake up the next morning in my own bed! The only thing missing would be my galoshes. So I often didn’t have to get dressed for church the next morning. When the party was at our

house, I always hoped there would be some cookies or slab cake left to be enjoyed on Sunday, but there wouldn’t be a crumb of lunch left! By Sunday morning, everything in the kitchen would be back to normal. Mother and Audrey would have washed the dishes, and the furniture would all be back in place. The parlour door would once again be closed, and a braided mat rolled up against it. There was no need to heat a room that was never used in the winter time except for the Saturday night house party. And so it went...all winter long. As normal as going to church every Sunday, or going into Renfrew to peddle chickens and butter, the Saturday night house party was a way of life back in those Depression years. And the price was right, too.

those people you know who have everything,” said RideauVanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury, a campaign co-chairman, of the new Gift of Change system. “You give them a chance to make a difference in someone’s life.” Fleury, who shares his duties with Angie Poirier of Majic 100 and CTV Morning

Live, was thrilled to able to take on the responsibility associated with the high-profile campaign. He’s pleased with the progress so far. “To hear how far we have come, it is amazing,” said Fleury. “$24 million is a lot of money … but the need is much greater, even greater than the goal we have set.”

Kanata Chamber celebrates Christmas The Kanata Chamber of Commerce hosts its annual Christmas get-together at the Holiday Inn and Suites on Dec. 19. From left, Neil Mather, executive chef at the hotel, the hotel’s director of sales Alana Haining, Rosemary Leu, executive director of the Chamber, Chamber president Greg Weatherdon, and Chamber members Lori Hillary and Francesca Lépine-Wilson, and general manager of the hotel Kristine Dempster enjoy the evening.

EMC lifestyle - Whether you are eating at home or at one of the city’s many restaurants, Ottawa Public Health is reminding residents to keep food safety top of mind during this busy and festive time of year. People can avoid foodborne illness by following safe food handling, storage and cooking practices at home, and by choosing restaurants that consistently meet safety guidelines. Health Canada estimates that there are between 11 and 13 million cases of foodborne illness in Canada every year. Food-borne illness – sometimes called food poisoning – usually results from eating food or drinking water contaminated by diseasecausing bacteria or the toxins they produce. Here are some tips that will make this holiday season safer for you, your loved ones and your guests.

• Thaw foods in the refrigerator. Turkey or chicken should be thawed in the refrigerator and never at room temperature. • Be sure to cover and store raw meat or marinades on the bottom shelf of your refrigerator to avoid spilling liquids on ready-to-eat foods. • Wash, rinse and sanitize utensils, cutting boards and food preparation surfaces and be sure to use separate work areas to avoid cross-contamination of raw and ready-to-eat foods. Remember, your hands can also transfer bacteria from raw to cooked foods.

eggnog, hollandaise sauce and caesar salad dressing, fresh every day using pasteurized eggs.



• Cook turkey and stuffing separately. • Cook turkey until it registers an internal temperature of 82 C (180 F) on a cooking thermometer for 15 seconds. • Refrigerate leftovers within two hours of cooking.

Did you know that Ottawa Public Health restaurant inspections are posted online? Inspectors visit food establishments, both on a routine and complaint related basis, to make sure any deficiencies are quickly corrected, and prepare a report about each visit. Food poisoning can feel like the flu. Symptoms may include stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and/or fever. If you suspect that your health has been compromised because of food, contact your family doctor or visit a walkin medical clinic. For more food safety tips, visit or to report a suspected food-borne illness call Ottawa Public Health information at 613-580-6744.

• Wash your hands for at least 15 seconds with soap and water, especially after sneezing, smoking, coughing, using the washroom, touching pets, changing diapers, or touching raw meats or eggs. • Wash all vegetables and fruits, including those that you peel or cut, such as melons, oranges and cucumbers.

Cook all ground beef, pork and fish products until it registers an internal temperature of 71 C (158 F) on a cooking thermometer for 15 seconds. Turkey and stuffing:

Raw egg products:

Prepare foods that may contain raw eggs, such as

Meats and soft cheeses

• Keep cold foods such as cheese and meat platters at a temperature of 4 C (40 F) or below. Tip: Place the serving dish over cubed or crushed ice. • Keep hot foods such as appetizers at a temperature of 60 C (140 F) or above. Tip: Use a hot plate, slow cooker or chafing dish. Dining out

Study begins for south Kanata road plans Jessica Cunha

EMC news – After a plan to extend Hope Side Road to Highway 416 was rejected by the National Capital Commission, the city will look at other options to reduce traffic congestion in south Kanata. An environmental assessment for a transportation plan in south Kanata is already underway as a consultant has been hired. The study will consider widening Richmond Road, Fallowfield Road and other major routes out of the area. Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley said the study is looking at how many vehicles travel to and from Kanata, what time of day the cars are on the road, and what routes they travel. “We’ll study that and (the EA has) got a deadline to it of December 2013. They not only have to complete the studies but come back with a functional design,” said the councillor, adding the major routes out of south Kanata include Eagleson Road, Terry Fox Drive and Richmond

Road. With the Hope Side Road extension tabled due to environmental impact, Hubley said he believes the Richmond Road corridor would be the most logical choice for an upgrade. “I anticipate what will come out of this will be the need to make improvements to the Richmond Road corridor,” he said. A joint study by the city and the NCC determined the Hope Side Road extension was one of several projects that would have a detrimental impact on the ecology of the Greenbelt. “Hope Side Road can come off the books now. I’ve already spoken at committee; I think we should delete that from the plans,” said Hubley. “If we extended the Hope Side Road piece through, there would be a significant impact on the greenspace there.” OPEN HOUSE

The city has partnered with the NCC to complete the assessment, and Enbridge


The environmental assessment for a transportation plan in south Kanata is underway. has agreed to delay putting in a new pipeline along West Hunt Club and Richmond roads, which was to begin in 2013, so the study can be

completed, said Hubley. As well, the EA will use studies already completed by Enbridge to help speed up the process. Enbridge has

studies on endangered species in the area as well as how much rock and clay is in the ground, said Hubley. “For that Richmond corri-

dor, we can use a lot of what was done in the Enbridge study,” said the councillor. The EA will also look at whether three lanes could work – two lanes moving east during morning rush hour that would switch to two lanes moving west in the afternoon – or if four full lanes are needed for whichever road is chosen for expansion. The 2013 budget allocated $400,000 to complete the studies and design work, and $15-million is on the books for 2015 to complete whatever the EA recommends, said Hubley. The councillor said he will be hosting open houses in the new year so the public can contribute to the process. With 15,000 news homes slated for a new Fernbank development, the councillor said it’s important to have the road infrastructure in place. “We need to have the infrastructure in place before all those people move into those houses,” he said.

Planning reforms already in works: councillors ‘I have trouble with community associations saying they represent their entire community’: Hubley Jessica Cunha

EMC news - Both Kanataarea councillors say the planning reforms called for by 33 community association groups across the city last week are already in the works. Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley said he’s appalled by the letter sent by the community groups, which are calling for four changes to the way the planning department, city councillors and the development industry interact. “As a former president of (the Glen Cairn) Community Association, I’m very embarrassed and disappointed that this group … wouldn’t put all the facts into this and make such a terrible statement towards city staff, city councillors and the homebuilding industry,” Hubley said. The reforms called for by



the community groups include: • Banning the city from hiring private consultants to process development applications. • Preventing city planners from making rezoning promises during pre-consultation meetings. • Banning campaign contributions and gifts from the de-

velopment industry to councillors. • Updating the city’s comprehensive zoning bylaw so that it’s in line with the Official Plan. “We no longer have confidence in the transparency, fairness, and integrity of the planning approvals process in Ottawa,” said the Hintonburg Community Association,

which led the call for action, in the letter. Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson said it’s no secret the city is already working on changes when it comes to the suggestions. And when it comes to campaign contributions, “they have to come from somewhere,” she said. “Campaign contributions are legislated by the provincial government,” she added. The province sets a maximum contribution amount at $750 and electors can see where campaign money comes from, said Hubley. “Nobody can buy a councillor for $750,” he added. “I spend a lot more time talking to residents … then I do any business. To suggest that our vote could be bought if these contributions are allowed is

outrageous.” Hubley said there was once a case where a conflict of interest was discovered when a private consultant worked for the company submitting an application. “There are rules in place now to prevent that happening.” Hubley added community associations don’t always represent the views of the entire community. “We don’t know, if you take a look at any one of these groups, we don’t know how many people these represent. We don’t know if they had a public meeting,” he said, adding the only person elected to represent a community is the ward councillor. “I come from this world; I know what community associations are about … I have

trouble with community associations saying they represent their entire community.” The only Kanata group on the list was the Kanata Beaverbrook Community Association. Two developments are going through the rezoning process in the area. The basic message of the letter the 33 groups sent to city hall is there is “way too cozy of a relationship” between the city and the development industry, said Gerry Holt of the Kanata Beaverbrook Community Association in a previous interview. The city is working on updating its zoning bylaws in the Official Plan, said Hubley. The Official Plan update is set to be completed in 2014. With files Mueller

Fitness Depot: Dedicated to Your Fitness and Health by Brian Turner

As the old year ends and the new approaches, more than a few of us will take a look in the mirror and decide it’s time to shape up. Maybe we’ll join a gym, but many of us will look to purchase home exercise equipment as a more convenient, comfortable, and private alternative to fitness club membership. But where to turn? Which elliptical, treadmill, rower, or exercise bike to buy? It’s easy to get lost in the myriad of websites, media ads, and avalanches of flyers overflowing our mailboxes. It’s also very easy to choose the wrong piece of equipment, that no matter how often you use it or how well designed it is, won’t deliver the results you’re looking for. And of course there’s the risk of injury because you didn’t get the appropriate advice you needed before purchasing a piece of fitness equipment that your body or physical condition isn’t suited for. Fitness Depot has been providing solutions to all these problems and concerns for over 20 years in Ottawa and their long list of satisfied and physically fit clients provide strong testament to their customercentered way of doing business. First, all of the associates you’ll meet at either Fitness Depot location (499 Industrial Ave in the east or 255 Kanata Ave in the west) are experts on the products and accessories they offer. They have been specifically trained by North America’s major fitness equipment manufacturers and receive continual education and updates on new designs and features. They are all fulltime employees and were chosen because of their commitment to physical fitness and excellent customer service. Second, if you want to try any of Fitness Depot’s equipment or products before you buy, it’s as easy as riding a bike because they’re all set up in their comfortable and roomy facilities for demo purposes. There’s no guessing from looking at a picture on the box or at some video as to whether or not you’re choosing the right product. Fitness Depot’s staff also take the time to ask the right questions to make sure that what you buy is right for you and other members of your family who might use it, and for your home. There’s no use getting the perfect home gym system if it won’t fit in your family or exercise room. In fact in most cases the associate you first meet will be the one to guide you through choosing and purchasing the right equipment and accessories to accompanying the delivery truck to your home to ensure a done-right-the-first-time set-up and to make sure you’re completely comfortable with all the features and operations.

And since they’re a depot, they carry everything they offer in stock and can arrange most installations on a same-day basis. Why wait days or weeks when you want to start your new life now? Some us of will enter Fitness Depot for the first time after being gym or club members and will be pleasantly surprised to find the same reputable major brands that our fitness club uses. Fitness Depot’s equipment suppliers are very carefully chosen and only ship to specialty retailers. You don’t have to be a fitness veteran to recognize names like LifeFitness, Precor, or Octane just to name a few. And commercial gyms and clubs also purchase their equipment from Fitness Depot. So the same expert associates that local gyms rely on, are there to serve you as well. And they’re happy to handle special orders for those rare occasions when someone is looking for a hard to find item that isn’t normally stocked. More than a few of us have experienced (or know someone who has) the difficulty that can arise when a fitness machine requires service or repair. With purchases from some retailers, the only choice is to package it up and send it back. But Fitness Depot runs a complete service centre in Ottawa that’s as close as your computer mouse. And since they offer their own in-house extended service plans, affordable peace of mind comes along with professional technicians. Whether it’s a simple adjustment or minor repair, or part replacement, it’s all part of Fitness Depot’s A to Z white-glove customer service. For Ottawa’s truly largest selection of fitness equipment and gear at the guaranteed lowest prices, with service that’s as fit as a fiddle, there really is only one choice with two great locations: Fitness Depot. East end manager Paul Riley and west end’s Kevin DeForge and their very physical teams are on site and on track Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm, on Saturdays from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm, and on Sundays from noon to 5:00 pm. You can reach them by phone at 613-247-8888 (East) or 613-591-8988 (West). Their website at has full details and specs on everything they sell. Good quality home fitness equipment means a long term relationship that brings much more value than flashy offers on unknown brands. With Fitness Depot, nothing’s holding you back from a fit future.

Hockey teams take buddy approach to training Peewee and novice players partner up Jessica Cunha

EMC sports - Two Kanata hockey teams are taking a big brother approach to the sport. The Kanata Kapitals peewee A team is partnering with the Kanata Bolts novice C team to hone their on-ice skills. Rob Nino, assistant coach for the Kapitals and head coach for the Bolts, came up with the concept after a few months working the benches for the two teams. The two teams were set to come together on Friday, Dec. 21 at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex in Stittsville. “We’re going to have each novice kid assigned a peewee player,” he said. “Now you have to take ownership on teaching a drill to a younger player … They’re going to be motivated, hanging on every word.”

I’m looking forward to it as a coach. These guys are going to have a better understanding of just how challenging it is to break down a skill. COACH ROB NINO

Eighteen peewee players, ages 11 and 12, and 18 novices, ages 7 and 8, were set to participate. Aside from the experience the players will receive, it’s also a chance for the coaches to mingle and learn from each other. “In novice C, or in the less experienced or less talent levels, it’s really hard to find parents to volunteer,” said Nino. Many of the parents know hockey; they understand the game, but coaching is different. Coaches have to be able to break down the drills into steps, he added.


The Kanata Kapitals peewee A hockey team is partnering with the Kanata Bolts novice C team in a buddy approach to training on Dec. 21. Coach Rob Nino developed the concept after working the benches for the two teams. “They may not understand coaching,” said Nino. “Quite often, we put our best of the best coaching (at) higher levels when really they should be coaching at the lower levels where (the players) need the experience and encouragement,” said Nino. This year, six veteran coaches have been assigned to novice teams to instruct the players and mentor the parents. “We’ve taken the initiative this year,” said Nino. “Not only to coach the novice kids but make it fun and easy for the new parent coaches. “Moms and dads and coaches get to meet other people. And it’s Christmas too; it’s perfect. I feel like Santa Claus.”


Every peewee player was assigned a novice skater and to one of two teams, either Team White or Team Blue, on Dec. 21. The teams were given a separate locker room, with pre-assigned stalls for each buddy team. “The novice kids are going to get to experience what the big guys do,” said Nino. From there, the practice will include lane skating and about four drills. Peewee players will be responsible for teaching their novice buddy how to complete each skill. “One of the challenges in novice is swarm hockey … they swarm to

“That was way to easy!”

the puck,” said Nino. “The theme of the practice plan is He Shoots, He Scores. Every drill we’re putting together (has) a shooting theme and a puck-handling theme.” Players will practice their puckweaving skills and shooting on the goalie, how to “push” the puck up open ice, stick-handling around tightly-placed cones, and how to effectively pass the puck back and forth. “The fun stuff for the kids is when they get a puck on their stick,” said Nino. After that, the teams will break for two half-ice scrimmages where they can put the drills into action. “I’m looking forward to it as a

coach. These guys are going to have a better understanding of just how challenging it is to break down a skill,” said Nino about the peewee players. Every novice player will be presented with a hockey pin during a blue-line presentation after the scrimmage. “Each novice will get a badge of honour,” said Nino. Representatives from the Kanata Minor Hockey Association were set to attend the practice to watch how the buddy system worked for the two teams. “We’re thinking this could become a regular program,” said Nino. “The whole mentoring program could take off.

EMC news - After a rocky close to its 2011 season, Ottawa’s professional opera company has announced a happy ending to 2012. Director general John Peter Jeffries announced at a meeting on Nov. 20 that the company was now showing a $200,000 surplus on its books. The good news was attributed to the company’s move to cancel shows in the 2011 season and cut back administration costs. Jeffries said he found the surplus a positive example of the company’s ongoing efforts. “We are just delighted with these results.” Jeffries said. A new board of directors was elected at the meeting, including new chairman Victor Rabinovitch. “Our renewal process has begun very well,” Rabinovitch said. The former chief executive of the Canadian Museum of Civilization and the War Museum added that Opera Lyra is working on audience outreach and marketing, as well as keeping the company’s budgets under control. The company’s next opera will be La Traviata which will be presented in concert at the National Arts Centre in March 2013.

Improved results for Opera Lyra

“Last year, my son was 6 years old. One night, while he was brushing his teeth, he looked up at me and told me what he wanted for Christmas. He said that even though he didn’t believe in Santa anymore, he still wished for a toy car. It was one of those cars that climbs walls, turns over and just keeps going and going. He told me that he knew he wasn’t going to get it because we couldn’t afford it. I was devastated. My little boy wasn’t asking for much, but he was right; we didn’t have the means to get this for him”. This story is from a mother who has received help from the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa. Due to external circumstances beyond her control, life wasn’t what she had envisioned for her children. When her worker found out about her situation, she immediately went to the volunteers who manage the Holiday Gift Program in search of this toy. After a few days, the toy was found and a call was made to Mom. Mom was in tears, because she finally got a chance to make her little boy’s wish come true. After the holidays, the worker received a voicemail explaining how this little boy, Christmas morning, opened his gift and started jumping for joy, squealing with excitement. Mom said when she tucked her little boy in that night, he thanked her, told her it was the best day ever and that now, he BELIEVED! This is just one example of how together, we can make a difference. If you could see the children’s faces light up when they open their gifts or the smile spread across their face from ear to ear, you would be witness to the magical moments the holiday season can bring. On behalf of the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa (CASO) and the Children’s Aid Foundation of Ottawa (CAFO), thank you to all who have given their time, money and commitment to the children, youth and families of our community. This year, CASO received more than 9,000 gifts from over 140 organizations, businesses, schools and individuals. We’ve had approximately 10 volunteers donate over 850 hours collecting, sorting and preparing these gifts for pick-up. Year after year, we have the chance to see firsthand what your contributions mean to children, youth and families. We are humbled by your generosity.

Ottawa-based professional hockey players visit CHEO kids Brier Dodge

out to spend some time with the kids.” Turris, Kelly, Clitsome, Phillips, and Senators players Peter Regin, Marc Methot and Eric Condra all made the trip to the hospital to visit the kids. Senators’ captain Daniel Alfredsson couldn’t make it, but sent some autographed cards with his teammates to

hand out to the kids. The players were presented with a giant Christmas card made by the patients, presented by Mariam Jolie, 7, from west Ottawa. The children signed the card, which said “Handmade with love” in large letters on the front. Mariam sat close to friends from her floor Emily Ellerginton, 7, and Jennifer Burke, a Grade 12 student from Barrhaven. The trio had Spartacat dolls and hats for the players to sign, and smiled widely as the

individual players made the rounds. “I’ve never seen the Sens up close before,” said Emily, a Senators fan who said it was a good Christmas present. “It was really good. I’ve never met them before either, so it was really fun,” said Jennifer, an Alfredsson and Phillips fan. She read the official welcome from the patients to the players. Another of the children loudly cheered the name of each player and threw his

hands in the air in excitement as they entered the room. “We’re really delighted that the Senators, on their own initiative, has organized this visit which really shows their commitment to CHEO, and the kids at CHEO,” said CHEO CEO Alex Munter, who was present for the event. The Senators always make an official visit to CHEO over the holidays, but have been known to make regular visits on their own downtime as well, popping by to visit with some of their biggest fans.


EMC news - There were some very happy little hockey fans at CHEO on Dec. 18 as players from the Ottawa Senators and other National Hockey League clubs visited children at the hospital. Ottawa Senator Chris Phillips organized a group of his

teammates as well as Boston Bruin Chris Kelly and Winnipeg Jet Grant Clitsome, a Gloucester native to spend some time with the patients and their families. “It’s so great to spend time with the kids and see them smile and laughing,” said Senators player Kyle Turris. “It’s nice. We’re like one big family, everyone really comes



Three-year-old George Jacobs, who is at CHEO because of an infection from his dialysis tube, meets hockey player Chris Phillips during a visit to the hospital.

City council full speed ahead on light rail Councillors, mayor, unanimously approve $2.13-billion Confederation Line light-rail contract



sions, as necessary. Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs also asked for a review of cyclist and pedestrian safety for roads that will be used as bus-detour routes when the bus Transitway is being converted to a rail line to the east and west of downtown. Rideau Transit Group’s quick action on council’s bike-parking criticism is a good sign for the companies’ working relationship with the city, said Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Egli. Orleans Coun. Bob Monette said he was happy to support the light-rail contract even though his ward’s residents will have to wait for a later phase before the trains come to them. “You have to start somewhere,” Monette said. “We need to rectify the downtown core before we go elsewhere.


EMC news - Calling the vote a historic moment for the city, Mayor Jim Watson and the rest of city council voted unanimously in favour of a $2.13-billion contract to build a light-rail system. The Dec. 19 vote marks Ottawa’s growth into a truly “big city,” said Alta Vista councillor and planning committee chairman Peter Hume. “We’re about to graduate to a big city,” Hume said during the Dec. 19 council meeting. Other councillors, including transit commission chairwoman and Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans, said it is votes like this that remind her of the weight of her office. “There are few days in the life of a municipal politician that mean this much,” Deans said. “We are changing the direction of the city’s future.” The 12.5-kilometre eastwest rail system, dubbed Confederation Line, will connect Tunney’s Pasture and Blair Road and include a tunnel downtown between Bronson Avenue and east of the Rideau Centre. The only new information about the project was the chosen construction consortium’s commitment to double the number of bicycle parking spaces to 600. The additional 300 spaces will not be weather protected, but 240 of the original planned spaces will have protection from the elements. Councillors criticized the small number of planned bike parking spaces when they debated the project as committee of the whole on Dec. 12. “We understand the importance of cycling amenities in this city and we hope that this gesture will be well received by Ottawa cycling advocates, Ottawa city council and the general public,” a letter from the Rideau Transit Group consortium reads. Local advocacy group Citizens for Safe Cycling did not respond to a request for comment before this newspaper’s deadline. The consortium and city staff have also said they would ensure space is identified for future bike-parking expan-

You have to start somewhere...We need to rectify the downtown core before we go elsewhere. You cannot build a transportation network without building the foundation.

MBargaret urniston

Councillors and the mayor gather in council chambers after the Dec. 19 vote to approve the light-rail contract. You cannot build a transportation network without building the foundation.” Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes, whose ward will be home to the tunnel and four of the stations, said it is essential that the city move quickly to give Queen Street a facelift, as envisioned in a study called Downtown Moves. The tunnel will run under Queen Street, so many transit users are expected to flood that street when they emerge from the underground stations, and the sidewalks and street must be able to handle that, Holmes said. Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury made a similar request about funding and options for streetscaping the section of Rideau Street between Sussex

Drive and Dalhousie, where the Rideau station will be. Holmes also formally requested that staff investigate the possibility of a covered pedestrian connection between the Ottawa Convention Centre/Rideau Centre and the National Arts Centre at Confederation Square. Informal discussions about the link have been ongoing. Fleury was interested in pedestrian and cycling connections to Rideau and Campus light-rail stations, since the current Laurier Transitway station between those two locations will no longer be served by rapid transit after Confederation line begins operating in 2018. Construction and tunnel digging will start next year.

The buses will operate on a regular Saturday schedule. This time, the free service is being offered three hours earlier than in previous years. Para Transpo will operate until 1 a.m. on Jan.1. “The earlier start means more people will begin their evenings with public transit, which should result in more people ending their evening in the same way,” said Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans, chairwoman of the transit commission. “Thanks to the support of our partners, in this season of traditions, OC Transpo can once again fulfill its tradition of bringing increased safety and responsibility to Ottawa streets on New Year’s Eve.” In addition to the free bus service, the city encourages

City Council has approved the Light Rail Transit (LRT) Confederation Line by a unanimous vote. The Rideau Transit Group (RTG), a consortium of world-leading engineering firms, won the fixed-price contract to design, build, maintain and finance the LRT line from Tunney’s Pasture to Blair, a distance of 12.5 km with 13 stations. Construction is expected to start in late February. You can view the detailed designs of the Confederation Line by visiting The funding for this $2.1 billion project comes from the Government of Canada ($600 million from the Building Canada Fund), the Province of Ontario ($600 million grant) and the City ($900 million - $192 million from Federal Gas Tax funds, $287 million from Provincial Gas Tax funds and the remainder from development charge revenues and transit reserves. It is not being funded by property taxes. This line is the first stage of a system that will eventually serve all areas of the City – from Kanata to Barrhaven to Riverside South and to Orleans. The overall system is a part of the Master Transportation Plan. This Plan shows future light rail routes, bus rapid transit routes and roads, along with cycling and pedestrian plans. Every 5 years this plan is reviewed and updated in conjunction with the Official Plan for land use designations and an infrastructure plan. The next review is in 2013. A major event is planned for late January to start the review process, which includes reviewing, and possibly changing, priorities for transportation infrastructure, based on need and financial resources. Public sessions will be held in the spring on the proposed priorities for routes and construction. Final approval of the revised plans will occur in December.


Have fun on New Year’s Eve while staying safe. This year OC Transpo buses are free from 8 p.m. on the 31st to 4 a.m. on the 1st, (1 a.m. for Para Transpo) thanks to a partnership between OC Transpo, the City’s Safer Roads Ottawa program, Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) North & East Ontario and the Ottawa Chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD). In addition to the free bus service, Ottawa drivers should consider the use of designated drivers, taxi services or Operation Red Nose to ensure a safe passage home throughout the holidays. Our goal at the City of Ottawa is to have the safest roads in the world. No matter how you choose to travel on New Year’s Eve, please stay safe.


There have been a number of house fires recently from several causes, including chimney and kitchen fires and candles. Check to see that your stove is turned off, use candles away from flammable items such as curtains and extinguish them before leaving the room, keep your live Christmas trees watered and check your smoke detectors to ensure they are in working order.


Ottawa has been chosen to host Skate Canada for their national championships in January, 2014 at Scotiabank Place. This will be an opportunity for us to see the skaters that will represent our country in the 2014 winter Olympics.

This will take place at Lansdowne Park in the stadium that is presently under reconstruction. Events such as these are important for Ottawa’s economy and give us a front seat to see national and international sports.

’Tis the season for celebrating the holidays with family and friends. Here are some tips for keeping the energy costs down while entertaining this holiday season: Remember the time-of-use schedule: take advantage of off-peak periods on the weekends and on Dec. 25 and 26. Remember that Dec. 24, 27 and 28 are not considered holidays. The on-peak period is from 7 to 11 a.m. and from 5 to 7 p.m. The mid-peak period is from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The off-peak period is from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. When cooking on your stovetop, match the size of the pan to the heating element - more heat will get to the pan and less will be lost. Baking holiday treats? Check on your baking goodies by looking through the window on your oven. Opening the oven door, even for a few seconds, will lower the internal temperature of the oven and require more energy to be used to bring it back up to the right temperature. Delicious leftovers? Allow leftovers to cool before placing them in the fridge or freezer. Pass on preheating. While preheating may be necessary for baking, it’s not needed for things like roasts or casseroles. Time your holiday cheer. Put your outdoor holiday lights on a timer to only have them on when it’s dark out. If someone else is hosting you this holiday season, lower the thermostat in your home while you are away. Interested in additional ways to save energy?

Winter tire benefits not understood: Report EMC news - Canadian drivers lag in adopting winter tires in spite of evidence that their use saves lives and reduces road-accident injuries. A 2011 study by the Quebec government shows that winter road-accident injuries have dropped by five per cent since winter tire use was made mandatory by law in 2008. Widespread use of winter tires is credited with preventing

“All the evidence points to winter tires being the safest choice for driving in cold weather,� said Glenn Maidment, president of the Rubber Association of Canada (RAC), which represents tire makers. “Drivers should carefully consider whether winter tires are right for them and make an educated choice.� The TIRF report, entitled Winter tires: A Review of Re-

about 575 injuries per winter in the province. These findings are supported by a new report from the Traffic Injury Research Foundation (TIRF) that concludes that winter tires decrease costly collisions. The report cites extensive research that shows that winter tires deliver superior traction, cornering and braking on all cold-weather road surfaces.


search on Effectiveness and Use, stresses that the benefits of winter tires are not well understood and clarifies commonly held myths about winter tires. Many motorists, for example, think winter tires are only useful in regions with lots of snow. Research shows that once temperatures drop below seven degrees Celsius, winter tires perform better whether

the road surface is dry, snow covered, slushy or icy. Winter tires feature specialized rubber compounds that retain elasticity in temperatures below -30 degrees Celsius and treads that grip at cold temperatures. In fact, winter tires deliver up to 50 per cent more cold-weather traction than allseasons. Another misconception is that all-season or summer tires provide sufficient traction in winter. One of the most important advantages of winter tires is

reduced stopping distance when braking. According to research cited by the TIRF report, at temperatures just below freezing on dry pavement stopping distance for vehicles with all-season tires can be as much as 30 per cent longer than for vehicles with winter tires. Winter tires have also been shown to have better traction on a snowy surface at -40 degrees Celsius than an all-season tire has at plus four degrees Celsius. Learn more by visiting

obliterated by ill-conceived urban renewal and transportation schemes in the ‘60s and early ‘70s, and continues to struggle to this day to survive despite being previously saved and designated as an important heritage area. Marc Aubin, a sixth generation resident of Lowertown and president of the Lowertown Community Association, along with fellow members, will share perspectives on the community’s successes and challenges in protecting and restoring the area’s heritage.
