Thinking pink to end bullying Grade 6 students at Greely Elementary School took a stand against bullying on April 10, the International Day of Pink. Every year on the second Wednesday in April, millions of Canadians – many of them students – wear pink to show they will not tolerate bullying, discrimination or homophobia in their community.

EMC news – Circle or square: those are Greely’s options to better control the intersection of Stagecoach, Apple Orchard and Parkway roads. City staff have designed two solutions for the intersection, which currently has through traffic on Stagecoach and stop signs for drivers on

the adjoining roads. One option is a traditional signalized intersection; the other is a roundabout. The cost for either option is basically the same - $1.3 million and $1.4 million respectively - so the city is allowing residents to decide what kind of intersection they want. At a public meeting on April 10, city traffic engineer Campbell Inwood presented the pros and cons of the two options,

which both include realigning Apple Orchard northward to connect directly with Parkway. He said the sooner residents decide which option they like, the more likely the project can get done while Parkway is being resurfaced in 2014. Although a few residents at the sparsely attended meeting were skeptical of the merits of a roundabout, Greely Community Association president Bruce Brayman said the as-

sociation will likely recommend to Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson that’s what they want. “I went to an initial meeting in support of signalization, but came out in support of the circle,” Brayman said. “Twentytwo hours a day, it’s better for everyone.” Since the vast majority of traffic is on Stagecoach – about 400 cars an hour during peak hours – a single-lane round-

about would slow traffic down but wouldn’t cause the backups of a red light, Inwood said. Roundabouts are also lower maintenance because they don’t rely on electricity. They aren’t affected by loose wires or power outages and don’t need to be monitored by the traffic operations department for timing problems, Inwood said. See ROUNDABOUT on page 2

Roundabout debate continues Continued from the front

While roundabouts often cost more to build than a signalized intersection, in this case Inwood said the cost is basically the same. The city will have to buy several strips of nearby private property to build either intersection, and the roundabout option requires slightly less purchased land, he said. The association’s transportation committee chairman Howard Crerar was the most vocal skeptic at the meeting. “I have concerns, and they are from personal experience,” he said. As a cyclist, he said he felt very unsafe using a major two-lane roundabout on Highway 43 in Kemptville, and had to get off his bike to safely get around. In fact, this is what the city recommends, Inwood said. “It’s virtually impossible to successfully incorporate a bike lane into a roundabout,” Inwood said, because bike lanes would cross the traffic turning onto exits. “We suggest cyclists, EMMA JACKSON/METROLAND if they feel comfortable, to take the City traffic engineer Campbell Inwood explains the benefits of a round- lane as a vehicle.

crosswalks like pedestrians.” Association member Christine Leblanc said she supports the idea of a roundabout because it will slow down the many commercial trucks that use Stagecoach every day. “The trucks just barrel through there, so that would slow them down a bit,” she said. “I think they work efficiently.” Thompson said he is still not convinced that a roundabout is the best solution, because traffic is so much greater on Stagecoach than on Apple Orchard or Parkway. “My concern is that those two peak periods would have a huge backlog,” Thompson said. He noted that he still has about six weeks to research and speak to city staff about the options. “I still have to do some more investigating so I can’t say right now whether I would make that decision or not,” he said. Brayman said residents can offer their feedback for the next few weeks at VILLAGE CONCERNS

The association also hosted a traffic safety specialist from the city to talk about general traffic concerns in the village and how the city might address them. Dylan Ridsdale took questions from residents ranging from parking and visibility in front of Greely Elementary School to speeding problems on Bank Street. One major concern was the lack of warning for drivers that the Osgoode multi-use pathway crosses Mitch Owens Road. Leblanc said the road has high volumes of fast-moving commercial

trucks, and all residents agreed it was only a matter of time before someone gets hurt. Currently “cyclists ahead” signs are posted on Mitch Owens in both directions, but the residents want a more inclusive sign that tells drivers to also expect snowmobiles, pedestrians and equestrians. Switching out the signs on a seasonal basis is too expensive, Ridsdale said, and currently the only available signs are generic pedestrian crossing signs. Ridsdale said the city is uncomfortable putting such a generic sign up, because as more multi-use pathways are created across the province and country, regulatory bodies want their markings to be universal. “You want them to be uniform so drivers understand them wherever they go,” Ridsdale said. “We can’t just put up pedestrian crossing signs wherever we feel like it; they have to meet a certain criteria. The signs have to be used judiciously, otherwise they become visual clutter.” Leblanc said her main safety concern is at the corner of Manotick Station Road and Mitch Owens, where she said eastbound right turns can be very dangerous. Drivers often take the corner quickly because they can’t slow down on Mitch Owens without risking an accident from behind. Going around the Bakkers general store, drivers are often met with cars parallel parked along the road where the storefront and a collection of mailboxes tempt many people to stop, she said. As a result, drivers have to weave into oncoming traffic. Ridsdale said he would look into the issue and consider placing No Parking or No Stopping signs in the area.

Farmers gather to protest release of GM alfalfa Jennifer McIntosh

EMC news - The release of genetically-modified alfalfa could be the last straw for a dwindling bee population, said bee keeper Susan Hamilton. Hamilton, along with four dozen farmers from across Ottawa and the valley came out to protest the potential release of herbicide tolerant alfalfa at the Canadian Food Inspection Agency headquarters in Nepean on April 9. “We have had bees since 1973 and the population is dwindling already,” Hamilton said. “This will eventually kill them off.” Hamilton added that pollinating the alfalfa genetically modified to include the herbicide Roundup could hurt and eventually kill bees. Forage Genetics International has applied Monsanto’s Roundup Ready technology to alfalfa and Canada already approved it for health and environmental release in 2005. Variety registration with the agency is the last step before it can become commercially available. Demonstrators with the National Farmers Union and the Canadian Biotechnology Action Network hoped to halt the process by letting the powers that be know how they and consumers feel. Alfalfa is a high-protein feed for dairy cows, beef cattle,

lambs, poultry and pigs, but because labelling for genetically modified crops is not mandatory in Canada, it’s unlikely consumers will know they are eating altered crops. Lucy Sharratt, a co-ordinator with the action network, said 38 communities across the country organized demonstrations in a four-week period. “Seventeen communities in eastern Ontario were holding demonstrations today,” she said, adding eastern Canada is where the genetically-modified alfalfa would be rolled out first. Lauretta Rice, whose son runs a dairy farm in Douglas, Ont., went to the protest because she said the introduction of the Monsanto technology would kill off the more than 200 varieties of the plant that her son produces locally. Alfalfa is a perennial plant that is pollinated. The introduction of a genetically-modified strain will cross-pollinate with organic forms and threaten the livelihood of local farmers, she said. The Canadian Forage and Grassland Association released a report the potential impact of Roundup Ready alfalfa on Canada’s forage industry in June 2012. “The introduction of RRA, and subsequent GE (genetically-engineered) alfalfa traits, into Canada could have a negative impact on certain export seed, forage, honey and the

entire organic industry,” the report reads. “RRA would give forage producers a new and effective weed control system. Successful introduction would also encourage biotechnology companies to continue developing other GE alfalfa traits adapted to the Canadian market.” But the Grain Growers of Canada, an association that represents 50,000 farmer members, issued a press release the same day of the protest, saying they support technologies that enable Canadians to farm sustainably. We support Canada’s robust science-based regulatory environment which ensures any new crops or traits are proven safe for human consumption, animal feed and our environment,” Stephen Vandervalk, president of the Grain Growers of Canada said in the release. “While we appreciate that many long-time opponents of progress have concerns, the reality is they have a lot of rhetoric, but no facts to back up their case.” But Sharrat said someone in the government needs to take responsibility. “Our government doesn’t even consider the potential economic costs before it allows GM (genetically modified) crops like this onto the market,” she said. “Farmers are left to bear the costs of GM contamination, which in the case of alfalfa would be borne by many types


Paul Slomp, a Manotick Station cattle farmer who sells grass-fed, organic, non-certified beef to 250 customers in the Ottawa area, protests with his six-month-old son Felix outside the Canadian Food Inspection Agency offices in Nepean on April 9 to halt the release of genetically modified alfalfa. of family farmer across Canada.” Paul Slomp, a resident of Manotick Station who sells grass-fed, organic, non-certified beef to more than 200 clients in the Ottawa area, said

the introduction of the modified plant doesn’t make sense. “Farmers don’t want it and I know my consumers don’t want it,” he said. “We have to ask ourselves who is making the decisions around what

kind of food we eat, why on earth is this being legitimized and being commercialized in Canada?”

Manotick fire station loses ice rescue equipment Emma Jackson

Emma Jackson/Metroland

Raising the roof Scaffolding went up at Watson’s Mill on Monday, April 8 as the heritage roof replacement project got under way. The mill has been fundraising since last year to raise the $500,000 needed to replace the badly leaking roof. Weather permitting, the new roof should be finished by opening day festivities on May 4.

EMC news – The volunteer fire station in Manotick will no longer have the equipment to perform off-shore ice rescues. Station 94’s one Fortuna inflatable ice rescue boat has been removed from the station now that Station 37 in Riverside South and Station 92 in Osgoode have full water and ice rescue capabilities. Gerry Pingitore, deputy chief of operations for the Ottawa fire service, said it was always expected that some stations that joined the Ottawa network through amalgamation would retire their equipment over time. “When we amalgamated we left (some equipment) in service in various locations,

understanding that one day as we grew...we would constantly be reviewing our deployment strategies,” Pingitore said. “Since that time Riverside South’s Station 37 has been built with full water and ice capabilities.” Pingitore said the decision was made mainly for cost savings. Not only can Manotick’s Fortuna potentially be put to better use in an underserviced part of the city, it also means the 25 volunteer firefighters who operate out of the Manotick station don’t need to be specially trained. “It’s the required legislative training and the time and effort for all firefighters to train on water and ice rescue,” he said. “Now they’ll be able to concentrate on other specialties.”

With water and ice rescue services in Osgoode and Riverside South, Pingitore said the difference in response time will be negligible. While Riverside South’s staff are career firefighters who operate the station 24 hours a day, the Manotick station is volunteeronly and relies on pagers to call staff to the scene. “The equipment is still minutes away,” Pingitore said. He added that Manotick’s firefighters will still be called to respond to water and ice rescue operations – and their role is critical. “Station 94 will still continue to play a vital role to locate an access point, make contact with any victim, establish a safe perimeter and commence with shore-based rescue procedures,” he said.

Race night to support Guide Dogs, Kiwanis Emma Jackson

EMC news - The Manotick Kiwanis will host a fundraiser for the Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind at the Rideau Carleton Raceway on April 21. The dinner and show includes an all-youcan-eat buffet dinner, access to the raceway’s live horse races and a chance to take home several silent auction items. Kiwanis president Kris Schulz said it’s the first time the group has supported the Guide Dogs in this way. “They’re very close to Manotick and they help people who are blind,” Schulz said. “We basically try to pick a charity for the community. We’ve done Watson’s Mill, we’ve done ROSSS, we’ve done Miller’s Oven.” The Guide Dogs national training headquarters is located on Rideau Valley Drive, just south of Prince of Wales Drive.

Schulz said they are hoping to raise about $6,000 at the event, which would be split evenly between the Kiwanis and the Guide Dogs. The Kiwanis disperses its funds to non-profits and charities in the region. The evening’s silent auction includes gift baskets from local companies like SunTech Greenhouses and Moncion’s Independent Grocer, as well as donated items and gift certificates for local services, golf courses and businesses. Schulz said the Kiwanis will set up the silent auction items on Saturday for early bidders, and staff from the Guide Dogs will bring a dog to tell people about what they do. The Kiwanis will also host a 50/50 draw. The event is family friendly, with tickets $40 for adults and $20 for kids aged six to 12. Kids under five get in free. Tickets are available at the French Cafe in the Manotick Mews or at Manotick Office Pro on Main Street. For more information contact Schulz at 613-692-8266 or SUBMITTED

Official Plan meeting riles rural residents Emma Jackson

EMC news - A healthy turnout for the Manotick Village and Community Association’s meeting to discuss the city’s official plan review meant high tensions and more than a few debates about the state of rural affairs in Ottawa. The association hosted the public meeting with Coun. Scott Moffatt and Coun. Doug Thompson on April 9 to allow residents in Osgoode and Rideau-Goulbourn a chance to give feedback on the city’s official plan review. The city’s main planning document is updated every five years and will guide longterm planning until 2031. Thompson said he was pleased to see such a large turnout, even if some residents derailed the task at hand with general complaints about other city policies. “There are people there with their issues and they’re still sore about development,” Thompson said. “But I think it’s a healthy debate; it’s a good crowd.” Several residents questioned whether the meeting

would do any good, and accused city staff of asking for feedback but going ahead with pre-determined plans. But Thompson said these meetings hold a lot of clout, especially since he and Moffatt are two of five councillors on the official plan review committee. “Scott and I bring up these issues and we certainly will have changes that we will want to make to the staff report before it goes to ARAC and council,” he said. Association president Klaus Beltzner focused the meeting on elements that directly impact rural residents: land use and transportation. After a brief presentation about each topic, the organizers asked participants to write what they think is working, not working and missing. As facilitator Pierre Viau read out a sampling of answers, many tables had little positive to say; many comments fell under the “not working” and “missing” categories. LAND USE

In rural areas, the city wants to direct most of its rural de-

ment lands in the rural area, as there is a 100-year supply already set aside. Thompson said he would like to see more emphasis on developing rural employment lands. “Rural employment land is not even on the radar and that’s a big issue for the south end of the city,” he said. “Developing employment land is very critical; it enables people to find employment without having to go to the city and it’s good for the rural economy.” TRANSPORTATION


Residents discuss the benefits and fallbacks of the city’s Official Plan review on April 9. velopment inside large- and medium-sized village boundaries, in an effort to meet the province’s 50 per cent village development target. City staff have already recommended that the 2009 moratorium on estate lots become semi-permanent, since there are about 2,800 country lots backlogged in the system which can provide a 10-year supply for the city. The city plans to build about 10,500 rural units by 2031. Two thirds of that growth

would be directed to the city’s three largest villages, Greely, Manotick and Richmond. The remaining third would be split among medium-sized villages like Metcalfe, Osgoode and North Gower, which have a population between 1,000 and 3,000 people. The city also wants to encourage employment in the rural areas, with the goal of having 0.75 jobs per household in large villages. However, the city does not plan on designating any new employ-

The main proposal that will affect transportation in the rural area is a plan to change the way the city calculates peakhour traffic volumes. Currently the city takes counts during the busiest hour of the day and uses that to decide how and when to upgrade roads. In an effort to reduce the amount of roadwork by 15 per cent, and to encourage alternative modes of transportation, the city is now proposing to calculate peak-hour volumes over an averaged three-hour period.

That means more traffic and development will be allowed to build up before planners decide a road needs to be renewed or updated, which could mean added congestion for commuters coming into the city from the rural and suburban areas. Manotick resident Doug Horton said that policy shouldn’t apply to Manotick. “The city says one size can’t fit all, and this is really, really important,” he said at the meeting. “I really don’t think that the three-hour metric can apply to the Mahogany development.” As part of Minto’s development in Manotick, it must provide a traffic review after each phase of development, Moffatt explained. If some phases are reviewed on the one-hour metric and others are done on the three-hour system, the city won’t get an accurate picture of the development’s impact. “If you change the parameters halfway through, that really changes the outcome,” he said. The bulk of the official plan review is expected to be wrapped up by the end of 2013.

Manotick volunteer fights back against MS

Jennifer McIntosh

EMC news - A Nepean man is continuing his fight against the onslaught of Multiple Sclerosis. John Kersley, a 67-year-old vice-president of the Manotick Legion was diagnosed with the disease in 1992. He has been attending the MS Society of Canada’s annual fundraising walk ever since. Kersley went to his doctor complaining of numbness and had to wait two years for a diagnosis. “I went in and told her (his doctor) and she asked me to close my eyes and identify what she had given me to hold,” Kersley said. The item – which turned out to be a safety pin – felt like a paper clip to Kersely due to the decreased feeling in his fingers. Now diagnosis happens as soon as the patient is able to get an MRI, but treatment is still difficult since no two cases are the same. Kersley has secondary regressive MS, which means the symptoms of the disease steadily worsen. Unlike relapsing, remitting MS – which is characterized by attacks that can leave people blind or without other motor functions for anywhere from an hour to a week – Kersely’s form of the disease has no real treatment. Kersley said he is skeptical of the Venus treatment for MS. The costly ($15,000 a treatment) operation is done through balloon angioplasty and stenting. It’s designed to increase blood flow through from the brain. “It’s a neurological disease, it seems removed from blood,” Kersley said, prefer-

ring to find a way to live with the disease rather than look for a miracle cure. Kersley went on long-term disability from his work as a commercial banker with TD 15 years ago. Back then he could still walk around his yard. A few years later he used a walking stick, then a walker and now a wheelchair. He also used to crew on sailboats during race nights at the Nepean Sailing Club. He can’t do it anymore, but despite his limitations, he maintains a positive outlook. “My doctor told me I was lucky I didn’t have symptoms before I was 40 because it would have progressed a lot more quickly,” Kersley said. He might be in a wheelchair, but Kersley mows the front lawn for 14 of his neighbours in his neighbourhood off of Prince of Wales Drive. He also goes around in his wheelchair propelling himself with his left leg so he can get at weeds. The Kersley home is filled with friends each summer as the neighbourhood kids gather to use the pool. The pool is open to anyone, anytime. “We have a very close neighbourhood,” Kersley said. “I don’t need to go on vacation in the summer, we love having all the people come to visit.” Winters are harder on Kersley since he can’t really go out, but he fills up the time with volunteering for the Manotick Legion, the Manotick Probus Club and the Rotary Club of West Ottawa. He started volunteering with the legion when it burned down several years ago and was part of the rebuilding campaign. With the Probus Club he said he’s proud to be part of educating seniors on the ABCs of Fraud. “We have a team of 10 volunteers and we work with the police,” he said. Despite enjoying the work he does, Kersley said he might have to cut back. His wife Trudi helps him keep track of all his projects though. “His brain is a bit like a computer with not enough memory, if there is too much on it, it kind of shuts down,” she said. The neurological side effects are one

Kersley used to be in charge of commercial applications and had trouble keep track of all the phases between, proposals, permit and construction. But as long as he can, Kersley said he will continue to help out in the community. The love of people and the desire to keep busy is one of the reasons he keeps coming back to the walk. The team of walkers will be comprised of Kersley, Trudi and members from the legion. The team will be called Red Fridays. Last year, Kersley managed to raise $5,800. He has no idea how much he has raised over the last two decades, but said that he hopes to top last year’s total. Organizers for the walk are expecting 1,200 walkers at Tunney’s Pasture on April 28. They hope to raise $320,000. For more information on the walk or to donate to Kersley’s team, visit www.

No mass exodus in sight


hil McNeely has his heart in the right place. The Ottawa- Orléans MPP has been a vocal proponent for his riding’s constituents over the past year, doing what he feels is best to protect the area’s economic, social and cultural identity. But, the Orléans politician was left floating in the political deep end with no life preserver in sight when he sent a letter to the Office of the Commissioner of Official Languages attempting to stop the move of Department of National Defence staff and military personnel to the Nortel Campus in the city’s west end. McNeely seems to think the relocation will result in a mass exodus of the Orléans francophone community. Granted, any DND employee who happens to own a house in Orléans won’t be happy with a longer commute time. But who would be? It’s a little unreasonable to ask the federal government or its agencies not to relocate its staff or set up shop in a new part of town because it will result in a longer car or bus ride for its employees. No one is forcing DND staff to move – they can choose to maintain homes in Orléans or move to a residence a little closer to the Nortel Campus. This is an economic reality that those of us who

work for private businesses face. Also, there is no way for McNeely to know how many of the affected employees currently live in Orléans, or where they would prefer to live. As for McNeely’s suggestion that the relocation threatens the francophone character of the Orléans community, that is another red herring that distracts residents from the real problem. The MPP, and his fellow east-end politicians, should focus their efforts on convincing businesses to locate in Orléans, instead of relying on strictly remaining a bedroom community for federal civil servants. After the economic downturn of 2008 and the subsequent budgetary struggles faced by the provincial and federal governments, many Ontarians are thankful simply to have jobs, never mind quibbling over having to increase commute times or change living arrangements to keep them. Pitting one end of the city against the other and attempting to beat the federal government over the head with the preserve-francophone-rights stick is counterproductive and does nothing to foster job growth in the Ottawa region. Orléans is a vibrant community with wonderful parks, recreation, transit – a great place to live, and play and do business.


Time to get ready for some geezer cinema


s it OK to use the word “geezer?” Perhaps it is if you are one. Somehow it seems more human than “senior” and way nicer than “elderly.” It also suggests a sense of humour which, heaven knows comes in handy. If it’s all right to continue, this column is going to be about geezer flicks – in other words, movies featuring old people. There is a small trend in this direction. Recently several movies featuring older actors have hit local screens, to the considerable appreciation of older audiences. There was Quartet, about a group of retired British musicians living in a musicians’ retirement home. People like Maggie Smith were in it, along with Tom Courtenay and Billy Connolly. Some of the jokes were about aging, but a lot of the humour came from the notion that retired people have the preoccupations they did when they were younger, the same fears and jealousies. Then there was The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, with Maggie Smith again, along with Judi Dench, Tom Wilkinson and other great British actors, living in a run-down hotel in India, each seeking something or seeking escape from something else. Both movies were funny, showing that you don’t stop laughing when you hit a certain age,

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town and both had happy endings of a sort, showing that happy endings aren’t only for the young and pretty. The ending was less happy in Away From Her, Sarah Polley’s 2006 film featuring Julie Christie as a victim of early Alzheimer’s and Gordon Pinsent as her not-entirely-noble husband. Although it sometimes seems that way, smart movies about older people are not the exclusive preserve of the British. What is encouraging about such movies is the indication their mere presence makes that geezers might actually constitute a significant market – in other words, that they cannot be ignored while the entertainment industry pursues teenagers. This shouldn’t be a surprise, when you think about it. That huge baby boom generaPublished weekly by:

tion has been marching steadily onward into old age and the front end of it is well into retirement now. More is to come. That may be a mixed blessing – the Eagles on the muzak at the retirement home – but at least it may mean better movies. For one thing, we don’t have to watch people obsessed with losing their virginity. When the flood of geezer flicks arrives, moviegoers will have to be aware of the proper way of viewing them. This involves going to your local multiplex in mid-afternoon and mid-week when the parking lot is almost empty and there are no lineups for popcorn because everyone else in the world is either at work or in school. Having made the purchase, you enter the theatre early – because geezers are always early – and look around at the 14 other people who are in it. They are all your age. There is no need to greet your fellow moviegoers, but you will be silently grateful for them because you know that none of them will be playing with their phones during the show, the ability to manipulate phones not being a highly-prized skill among this generation. They will also have not the slightest idea of the answers to the movie trivia questions that flash on the screen, none of which involve Gary

Cooper or Debra Paget. After watching previews of movies featuring explosions and making a mental note not to see them, the geezers will enjoy the movie, nod politely to each other on the way out and get home before the rush-hour traffic. That’s the way it is now but there’s always the risk that the pleasant ritual could be put at risk by the increasing popularity of geezer flicks and the increasing population of geezers. Already there are reports of crowds of more than 14 at matinees of Quartet. But geezers have met worse challenges in their long lives.

Activist shows how community connections help prevent crime Jennifer McIntosh

EMC news - Police, social service workers, residents and politicians learned about the power of the community during a crime prevention workshop at Immaculata High School on April 6. Jim Diers, a U.S.-based consultant on participatory democracy was the workshop’s keynote speaker. The event was hosted by Crime Prevention Ottawa, an organization that works to engage residents and property owners in crime prevention strategies. He said the feeling of community is losing out to things like television and travel to and from work. “People say they don’t have time to get involved, but they spend three or four hours a day in front of a screen,� Diers said. To combat television and disinterest Diers said the trick is to make getting involved in your community fun. “A lot of people don’t sign up for projects because they think they will have to go to a lot of meetings,� he said. “You

sign up for a project and you’re sentenced to a lifetime of meetings. No wonder television is winning.� Diers said the traditional role of hosting a meeting to talk about issues like crime tends to attract the same kind of people – meaning those attending neighbourhood association meetings don’t represent the make up of the neighbourhood. “Organizers should look at who isn’t attending a meeting, they could have interesting solutions,� he said. “My friend who is a duck hunter used to say, ‘we only use loon calls then we wonder why a bunch of loons show up.’� Ottawa police Chief Charles Bordeleau said initiatives like the Vanier Business Improvement Area (BIA) annual awards are great because they celebrate the work businesses do in the community. “I go to a lot of events and it’s great to see barbecues in Carlingwood celebrating Neighbourhood Watch volunteers and other neighbourhoods congratulating those who get involvement,� he said. Residents from across the

city attended the workshop at Immaculata, hoping to connect with other residents and service organizations that operate at the grassroots level. One 16-year-old resident of Bayshore asked how to motivate the members of her community. “Throw a party, ask people what they would like to see in their neighbourhood, find out what their passions are,� Diers said. He said residents need to be connected by their passions. He added that too often we focus on the deficit of our community, and forget about the positives. “Social service organizations tend to go into a community and do a needs assessment, and that has a place, but we also need to remember the local connections that we have to offer,� Diers said. One example Diers used was of Lake Street in Minneapolis. The street’s stores were vacant and there was a lot of criminal activity at night. A group of residents came together and formed a co-operative of businesses. One resident, who became president of


the co-op, ended up opening a chain of tamale restaurants. The co-operative ended up purchasing a building on Lake Street and running a number of Mexican-themed shops. Later, a group of Somalian residents followed suit and now there is an international commercial centre on the street that brings tourists from all over. In Diers’ own neighbourhood of Columbia City of Seattle, there was a similar project. Vacant businesses were creating spaces for drug dealing and prostitution. Diers said the decline started with the introduction of bigbox stores that started to close down the smaller businesses. “We had to do something, and there was an incredible network of faith-based groups and residents willing to pitch

in,� he said. The first step was to get the restaurants to stay open at night. A lot of the restaurants only served lunch because the criminal activity at night was a deterrent for potential clientele. Residents organized a beat night, where each restaurant had a different kind of music, getting people out on the street. “It was so popular that it now happens every week,� Diers said. And added traffic on the streets means more customers and customers attract new business. College Coun. Rick Chiarelli, who attended the Crime Prevention Ottawa workshop, said one of the ideas – painting the front of vacant businesses to mimic ice cream shops or hair salons as a business driver – is something he plans to talk

about at the next meeting of the Bells Corners BIA. Mayor Jim Watson said it wasn’t that long ago that Crime Prevention Ottawa was on the chopping block. “During a budget process it was nearly eliminated, but people came out and talked about the benefits. Now its budget has been increased,� he said, adding the work of the Vanier Beautification Committee has worked well as a crime deterrent. Shad Qadri, who serves as the organization’s chair, said communication and sharing of available resources are some of the organization’s strength. Whatever the project, pride in the community will help to provide a safeguard, Diers said. “We need to take ownership of the space and create bumping places for people to get together and connect,� he said.

Breeders, pet owners pleased with final kennel bylaw Laura Mueller

EMC news - The third time was the charm for Ottawa’s new kennel rules, which are aimed at preventing puppy mills. The proposed bylaw was delayed twice late last year after public outcry that centered on how the new rules would impact people who own dogs for recreational purposes such as dogsledding. West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry originally asked for a delay in October, when almost 200 people packed the Greely Community Centre to tell councillors about all the problems with the policy as it was proposed. For one thing, the city would be asking many rural dog owners to fly under the radar if it passes new kennel and breeding rules, Kinburn resident Tim Pychyl told councillors during that meeting on Oct. 4. Pychyl, who owns eight sled dogs, pleaded with the committee to include people like him – recreational pet owners who have more than three dogs. Based on that feedback, staff included a new recreational kennel category in the new proposal, which would cover homes where dogs are raised for non-commercial recreational purposes. The category has a limit of 10 dogs over the age of 20

weeks, unless they are housed in a building separate from the home. License holders can also keep up to three dogs that have retired from their recreational use and one rescued dog. Pychyl said the addition “has really done the job of creating the space we need to ethically own and race dogs.” Joan Colbourn, past president of the Ottawa Kennel Club, said the addition of the recreation category was a “wonderful way” to solve the problems dog owners identified in the previous versions of the bylaw. “At the first meeting, it seemed like the city had no idea … They seemed to think if you had dogs, you were a kennel and breeding operation,” Colbourn said. Still, many dog owners and breeders will continue to fly under the radar even though they should be licensed, said the kennel club’s current president, Carol Broadhurst. “Not everyone will apply. That’s the problem,” she said, adding there is a lot of leeway there for the “good” breeders to comply. The second category would put a limit of three dogs and five cats in place for the in-home breeding kennel category. But after the public called for it, staff added a clause to allow up to three retired dogs or five retired cats to be kept as pets, or a rescued dog or cat to be kept tempo-

rarily. The limits wouldn’t apply to in-home breeding kennels that house animals primarily in an outbuilding. The in-home breeding category includes basic requirements such as clean conditions and veterinary care when necessary, but it also includes limits on breeding, selling and transferring animals. City staff also removed a clause of the in-home breeding kennel that would have required breeders to be a member in good standing of a bona fide dog or cat registry such as the Canadian Kennel Club or the Canadian Cat Association. That’s in recognition of breeders who focus on mixed “designer” breeds rather than purebreeds. “We’re not in the business of passing judgment on whether animals should be true bred or not,” said Christine Hartig, the city project officer for the new rules. Ron Holowka, a resident who came to address the committee on April 4, asked councillors to consider making the rules apply to pet shops as well. But Hartig said pet shops fall under different legislation because they handle animals in a different way. Shops usually don’t breed animals themselves, and they house the animals temporarily until they are sold – not for long periods of time, like a breeding kennel. A city staff review found that most pet


Cat and dog owners are satisfied with the city’s final kennel bylaw, which went through several revisions after kennel owners and breeders protested original drafts. shops in Ottawa are actually selling animals from shelters and the Ottawa Human Society – not private breeders, Hartig said. The third category would apply to boarding kennels, which would require a $100 license. Boarding operations would be required to comply with zoning, have the proper insurance, keep health records for each animal, employ trained staff and to maintain cleanliness and proper conditions such as temperature, food and water. Some existing license holders

will be grandfathered and allowed to have more animals until 2018. Under the previous rules staff drafted in October, there were only two categories: in-home breeding license, which would apply to people who have more than three dogs or five cats for breeding or showing, and a licence for commercial kennels or boarding operations. Enforcement of the kennel bylaw would be based on health and safety and only done when absolutely necessary, city staff said. Those fines can be appealed.


Fundraiser to house homeless Michelle Nash


EMC news - When it comes to building community and creating a place to call home, one charitable organization prides itself in bringing faith, family and friends together to make it happen. The Multifaith Housing Initiative is an affordable housing charity that connects volunteers from different faith communities from across the city with families or individuals who are at risk or experiencing homelessness in order to help them find a rental home. The initiative allows multiple faith


Manotick News EMC - Thursday, April 18, 2013

communities, volunteers and donors to reduce the number of people living on the streets or in shelters. The initiative owns 40 units in three buildings in Vanier and Centretown and in order to maintain and expand those operations, the organization is holding its annual Tulipathon fundraising event on May 5 from 3 to 5 p.m. Micah Garten is the organization’s fundraising manager and he is currently working to put the final touches on the day’s events. “It’s a nice event, and probably the one and only event where you will see a rabbi, an imam, a minister and a Hindu all together for the same cause,” Garten said. The organization has 90 tenants in the 40 units and the campaign goal is to add another 20 units. The housing is not exclusive to one faith or one demographic. Although there are a lot of families who have found placement in one of the initiative’s buildings, the group works with seniors, students, low-income and seasonal workers to find them housing. All the existing units are full, Garten said, so expanding the number of units is the only way to successfully help more people in need. Celebrating its 15th year, the walkathon event raised $27,000 last year. This year, Garten said the group is looking to beat that number. Registration begins at Dow’s Lake in Commissioners Park at 2:30 p.m.

Old organ, hymns are familiar sounds at Sunday service


he organist at the Lutheran church did her best. But when Aunt Lizzie came from Regina on her yearly visit, she never failed to comment on how the old organ needed a tuning. She once added, “maybe what is needed is a new organist.” Well, the chance of getting anyone to replace the organist out there in Northcote was just about nil, and the possibility of getting the instrument tuned was just as remote. The woman who sat on the little swivel stool every Sunday played for the satisfaction it gave her and other than a few words of praise from the minister at the Strawberry Social in the summer that was all the pay she got. The organ looked like it had gone through the war! And when I was very young, sitting right behind it, I often thought a ghost lived in it, because for a few seconds after the last note was played, there was a wheezing sound come out of it, like someone drawing his last breath. There was a single row of plugs that looked like spools

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories of thread, and even from a distance, I could see printing on them. These “plugs” often seemed to confuse the organist, who would push and pull at them, which created more wheezing, or no sound at all. One Sunday, in her frustration, she pulled and pushed the same “plug” and the whole thing came out in her hand. She simply placed it on top of the organ, and there didn’t seem to be a whit of difference in the sound, even without the missing thing. I noticed it sat on top of the organ for weeks, before someone removed it, and it was never replaced or seen again. The yawning hole where it had once been remained as long as we went to the Lutheran church. The foot pedals held a special fascination for me. There

were two side by side. At one time they were covered in tapestry, but they had worn away to the perfect shape of the organist’s black laced shoes, which told me she had been playing for longer than I was alive! I thought: she must be very old indeed. Just like the organ. Since there was no other place to put them, at special services, bouquets of flowers sat on a little round disc on the side of the organ. My older and wiser sister Audrey said that was where a lamp was placed if there was something going on in the church at night, so the organist could see the keys. Flowers were placed there at Easter and at Christmastime, and I used to think it would be nice if someone brought flowers every week.

to see the same faces every Sunday, even though once a week, there was supposed to be choir practice. Who showed up on those nights depended on other events going on in the community which were considered more important. We could always count on one dedicated soul who never failed to sit in the very middle of the little row of straightbacked chairs on the small platform at the front of the church. She often drowned out the organist, and one Sunday she was singing one hymn while the organist was playing something entirely different.

But of course, that would never do for a staid and sober congregation like the Lutherans at Northcote! We hardly ever saw the face of the organist. Her back was to the pews, and I often spent most of the service trying to count the number of big grey hairpins that held the fat bun at the back of her head. The bun hid her neck, and one Sunday I got the giggles which I had trouble controlling when I thought her head looked like a turnip sitting on a narrow cloth-covered shelf. Audrey had to give me a few pokes with her finger to get me to sober up.

We hardly ever saw the face of the organist. Her back was to the pews, and I often spent most of the service trying to count the number of big grey hairpins that held the fat bun at the back of her head. Both went on doing their own thing, as the minister sat in the big high backed velvet chair with is eyes closed, rubbing

We never knew if there was going to be a choir. It didn’t seem to be organized to the point where you could expect

his forehead. My sister Audrey had a lovely voice, but she was very shy about singing alone. She had no trouble at the Northcote School when we belted out “God Save the King” every morning, but singing in church was a different kettle of fish. When she was ordered by Mother to do so, her knees shook like a bowl of jelly, sitting beside me in our pew. But when she got the first three or four notes out, she sang like a bird. I would look around the church and the people as if to say, “that’s my sister, you know.” The old organ, the organist who never missed a Sunday as long as we lived in Northcote, the familiar hymns, the voices raised in praise, and the tattered hymn books all created a warm and comfortable feeling deep in my heart. Like the neighbours around us, always there when a hand was needed, the sounds of the organ and the voices raised in praise, gave me a safe feeling, enabling me to shut out all else around me, and on Sunday, even the Depression seemed remote and far away.

EMC lifestyle – The delicate texture of farm raised-trout is enhanced by a light coating of cumin-scented cornmeal. As a contrast to its mild sweet taste, we’ve created a bold sauce from fresh vegetables. Preparation Time: 15 minutes Cooking Time: 20 minutes Servings: 4 with 1-1/2 cups (375 mL) sauce INGREDIENTS

Jerk Sauce: • 4 green onions, sliced • 3 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped • Half jalapeño pepper, seeded and coarsely chopped • 1 sweet red pepper, cut into chunks • 3 large tomatoes, coarsely chopped • 1 tbsp (15 mL) packed brown sugar • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) each dried thyme leaves, ground gin-

ger, cinnamon, nutmeg and garlic salt • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) cayenne pepper • Canola oil • 1/2 cup (125 mL) chopped fresh coriander (optional) Trout: • 2 Ontario rainbow trout fillets (12 oz/375 g each), skin removed • 3/4 cup (175 mL) cornmeal • 1 tbsp (15 mL) ground cumin • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt • 1 Ontario Egg • 1/3 cup (75 mL) milk • 4 tsp (20 mL) butter PREPARATION

Fresh jerk sauce: Place onions, garlic and jalapeño in food processor. Whirl until coarsely ground. Add sweet pepper and tomatoes with seeds and juice. Add sugar, thyme, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, garlic salt


and cayenne pepper; pulse until chunky and pepper is chopped, about 10 times. Don’t purée. In large skillet heat oil over medium heat. Add sauce; boil gently, uncovered and stirring often, until thickened, about 20 minutes. Stir in coriander (if using). Trout: Cut fish into servingsize pieces. In shallow dish combine cornmeal, cumin and salt. In another dish, whisk egg with milk. One at a time, coat both sides of fish in egg mixture and then in cornmeal mixture. In large skillet, melt 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the butter, over medium heat. Add coated fish, cook until golden, 3 to 5 minutes. Add remaining butter to side of pan. Turn fish, letting melted butter flow over pan before placing fish down; cook about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove to plates. Spoon jerk sauce on top and beside fish. Courtesy Foodland Ontario

Fatty acids benefit brain EMC news - Diets that include a specific type of omega3 polyunsaturated fatty acid play a role in positive brain health, studies show. A recent trial published online in PLOS-ONE Journal found that supplementation with 600 milligrams of DHA (sourced from algae) a day for 16 weeks, improved reading and behaviour in healthy school-aged children with low reading scores. The Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) Oxford Learning and Behaviour (DOLAB) trial is the first large, randomized and placebo-controlled study demonstrating the benefits of this nutrient in reading and behaviour among healthy school children. In an analysis of 224 children with baseline reading scores below the 20th percentile, algal DHA supplementation significantly improved reading. Reading was also significantly improved in the subgroup of 105 children with baseline reading scores below the 10th percentile. Reading performance was evaluated using a standardized word reading test, The British Ability Scales (BAS II). When comparing reading

ages, results from the DOLAB trial also found that supplementation with algal DHA led to an additional gain in reading age. Supplementation with 600 mg algal DHA for 16 weeks led to an additional 0.8 month gain in reading age in children with baseline readings scores below the 20th percentile. In addition, for children with baseline reading scores below the 10th percentile, algal DHA supplementation led to an addi-

tional 1.9 month gain in reading age. The results come at a time when many adults have limited to basic reading skills. According to Human Resources and Skills Development Canada, 48 percent of Canadians have low levels of literacy, pointing to the need for children to increase their reading performance at an early age.

With more than 200 projects representing more than 40 schools, the judges had their work cut out for them. “The quality is pretty impressive,” said committee cochair Jovan Groen. “We’ve got a great fair this year.” Students in grades 7 to 12 competed in the fields of science and engineering in junior, intermediate, senior, and special awards categories. The 2013 edition marked the 52nd year of the science fair. “They’re excited to share here,” said Groen. Grade 7 students Emma Jones, 13, and Tanya Nguyen, 12, from Ashbury College in east Ottawa did a project on the cleanliness of their school by examining various surfaces. “We found that we didn’t have a lot of dangerous bacteria but we did have mould on our desks,” said Tanya.

would determine what kind of glass would be used. Amar Abdisamed, a Grade 8 student at Ottawa Islamic School in west Ottawa, created a project on how to cure cancer with nanotechnology. The Sandy Hill resident lost his grandfather to brain cancer and his uncle to lung cancer. “I wanted to use my education (to) find a cure,” said Amar. “(Nanotechnology) can help any stage of cancer because it completely destroys the tumour” without affecting the healthy cells surrounding the diseased area.

The solution was to wipe down the desks more often. Grade 11 students Alexa Rious, 17, and Makayla Roper, 16, from All Saints Catholic High School in Kanata, wanted to develop a water filter that could be made from resources found in Third World countries. The result was a multiple-layer filter comprised of cloth, gravel, sand, charcoal, cat grass and corn husks. “They can easily make good filter and purification systems,” said Alexa, adding the judges were impressed the entry. Manotick’s Nasib Al Karmi, a Grade 7 student at Abraar School in Bayshore, made a vehicle that cleans snow off solar panels. He noticed that his neighbour had to clear the snow off his solar panels with a rake during the winter months. “I found out through my research just an inch of snow can shut down the whole system,” said Nasib. He found glass that could protect the panels so the vehicle wouldn’t damage them. “The glass does not affect the efficiency,” he said, adding the weight of the vehicle


Eleven projects were selected to compete in the Canada Wide Science Fair from May 11 to 18 in Lethbridge, Alta. • Nicholas Chodura from Turnbull School, with his project 175,000 tons: Can it just disappear?; • Catherine Beaudin from Franco-Ouest French Catholic high school with her high efficiency solar thermal collector; • Danilla Xing from Bishop Hamilton Montessori

Ottawa has more than enough room for jobs: study Laura Mueller

EMC news – There is enough employment land ready to develop in the rural areas to last 100 years, a study has found. That’s far more than is needed, so the city should look at switching some of those lands so they can be developed for other uses, said Daniel Nixey,

a consultant from Danix Management Ltd., who undertook a detailed study of employment lands in Ottawa as part of the Official Plan update that’s currently underway. Nixey addressed city council on April 9, and the study’s results primarily focused on urban issues. Nixey said Ottawa needs to find ways to convince businesses it’s a good idea to locate near transit hubs.

Fifty per cent of businesses polled said they likely wouldn’t relocate their business closer to a transit line because of perceived or real disadvantages such as difficulty accessing roads and free or low-cost parking and the high cost of buying or renting space. There was also some concern about inconsistent transit service and distance from potential customers.

Pet Adoptions Domestic Mediumhair cat who is about 2 years old. This laid-back feline was brought to the shelter as a stray on February 4, but is now available for adoption.





Prince is neutered male, black Labrador Retriever and Great Dane mix who is about 9 years old. Prince was brought to the shelter as a stray on February 14, and is now available for adoption. Prince loves to meet and greet everyone. He has a preference for human companionship but may be able to share his home with another respecting pooch who isn’t intimidated by

his size. Give Prince a chance and he’d love to flaunt his social tendencies. Prince will need a family with children 12 years and older who will actively participate in helping him perfect how to keep all four paws on the ground. He will need a family that will bring him on all their adventures, as he is no couch potato. Abe is a neutered male, orange tabby

“Right now it looks like it’s going to be a hard sell,” Nixey said. The transportation committee chairman, Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Egli, said it’s a problem that employers have a perception that transit service isn’t good enough to warrant a move. Retailers are more likely to want to move to transit-accessible locations and the federal government is also expected to continue focusing its offices at transit hubs, Nixey said. The topic came up as part of a discussion about whether the city has enough lands slated for the development of offices, factories and retail centres as job hubs. The city’s planning committee agreed with staff’s conclusion that there are enough employment lands to last the city for another 40 years and dismissed a request from builders to expand the areas zoned for employment development. The committee asked for a detailed presentation on April 9 after getting a grilling from consultants representing Walton Group, which owns a large holding of undeveloped land in southwest Ottawa.

One of Walton’s consultants, Leah Carson of MMM Group, said her company’s review showed there is not enough employment land close the highways and there are not enough large parcels of land in the short-term supply that could be built up. The city doesn’t evaluate available employment lands the same way the private consultants did, Cross said. That’s because the city doesn’t have any indication that employers see proximity to highways as a factor that makes the spot any more desirable than other areas. And large parcels of land aren’t in demand, either, he added. The idea of giving developers flexibility to mix employment areas with some housing isn’t working, Nixey said. That category is called “enterprise” lands, and instead of resulting in a mix of residences and jobs, most of those lands are being built up with housing because it’s more profitable, he said. “Work-live areas are a great idea,” he said. “The problem is, it didn’t happen … In Kanata, we ended up with a bunch of townhouses.” The enterprise category

should either be scrapped entirely – something that has been discussed at city hall in the past – or new criteria should be added to ensure the jobs come to the area before homes are built. College Coun. Rick Chiarelli said the land north of the Bellwoods Estates trailer park could become a model for switching land from the “enterprise” category to employment land. A developer, Brigil Platinum, wants to do something similar in Orléans. Brigil wants to expand a Cité Collegial building on North Service Road and build around it on a 25-acre site. Changing the land designation from employment lands to a mixed-use centre would allow the company to build for up to 1,100 employees, whereas the city’s designation plans for around 700 jobs. Orléans Coun. Bob Monette was thrilled with the idea because it has the potential to bring even more jobs to his ward than the city anticipated. Orléans has a smaller proportion of available employment land than the rest of the city – about seven per cent of the supply.


Abe loves to have his belly rubbed. He has a very calm cat with an agreeable disposition that would make a great companion for humans of all ages, as long as they are gentle with him. Abe would rather not have other cats share his space. He has so much love to give that he’ll be the only feline companion you’ll ever need!

Hello friends, I’m Mack, also known as Mackie-Noodle, Mack-Attack, Mack-a-roni, Sponge Mack-Hair-Pants, or Mister Mack. I love everybody and as such, you will receive a proper greeting when I meet you; this involves a lot of licking and then covering you with hair. I was living at a local rescue when my family came to get me in the summer, and boy am I happy to not live in a cage. I can run and play and go on great adventures everyday with my mom and dad. My feline brother is quite accommodating and doesn’t mind me eating some of his toys and playing with him in his tunnel, although I can only manage to squeeze my head in. St. Patrick’s Day is my birthday and I will celebrate it with all of my friends and family and eat as many Pup-cakes as I desire…which is a LOT!

Aries, you must stand up for what you believe is right, even if it costs you a few friends along the way. It is the price to pay for doing the honorable thing. Taurus, take a trip this week if it will help you reach your goals. The change of scenery could give you an entirely new perspective on a situation that needs tackling.

Cancer, just because everyone else is making changes doesn’t mean you have to at this time as well. If things are working out, then let them stay as they are for a while.

Libra, don’t feel guilty if your opinion differs from others’. If you don’t agree with the consensus, then that is your opinion and your right.

Capricorn, if you want to get real results this time, change your approach with a person who has been troublesome in the past. You will get the knack of persuasion.

Don’t set limits on what you do, Leo. Changes at work mean you may need to fill different roles that require new skills. There’s a good chance you can master them. Networking comes in all shapes and sizes, Virgo. Attend a fun function to put yourself in touch with new people and lead to encounters that can help your future.

Scorpio, say what is on your mind because sometimes people just need to hear the honest truth. You have a good way of exacting authority and representing others.

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