Changes to communitybased transportation isolating disabled people Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Changes to accessible transit service in rural areas made a year ago aren’t working, say riders who pleaded for the transit commission to reinstate Para Transpo service. Instead of running Para Transpo vans to transport disabled people within rural areas, OC Transpo decided to provide funding to community service organizations that provide rides. While it may have sounded like a good idea at the time, the change has left people stranded and isolated, said Adele Muldoon, a West Carleton resident who spoke to the transit commission on April 17 on behalf of the Council on Aging. Some of the community-based services only run during business hours during the week and none of them are equipped to transport people who are confined to wheelchairs or scooters. “Every Ottawa citizen should have the opportunity to participate in community life,” Muldoon said. Commissioning taxis to pick up the slack is not a viable solution, since the companies usually refuse to send cabs to far-flung rural areas, Muldoon said. The city considers the changes to be a success. In the past year, community service agencies have been able to provide an additional 4,557 trips at an operating cost of $51 per trip – much lower than the cost of running a Para van, which is $77 per trip. Through the service agencies, clients are also able to travel beyond city limits and book their trips up to two weeks in advance, whereas Para Transpo bookings must be made on the same day the person wants to travel.

‘We’re not going to be deterred’ Local marathon runners return from Boston bombings Emma Jackson and Blair Edwards blair.edwards@metroland.com

EMC news – Guy Beaudoin didn’t pay much attention when he heard the first blast at the finish line of the Boston Marathon on April 15. The 57-year-old Manotick resident had just finished his twentieth marathon, and he was tired as he walked back across town to find his bag. He figured the sound was from a nearby construction site. But when the second bomb ex-

ploded 10 seconds later, he mustered up the energy to look behind him. “I realized there was all kinds of smoke and within seconds there were sirens blazing everywhere,” Beaudoin said. He continued back to his hotel, because even then it hadn’t even crossed his mind that it could have been a terrorist attack, and that a scene of carnage was unfolding at the finish line where three people were killed and more than one hundred were injured. It was a full two hours after the bombs exploded around 3 p.m. on Monday, April 15 when Beaudoin realized the full extent of what had happened at the race he’s now run five times. “I was shocked. I was concerned about the people behind me,” said Beaudoin, who finished the race about half an hour before the explo-

sions. He had travelled to the race with 23 other runners with K2J Fitness in Barrhaven, and one woman from his group was missing. “There was serious concern about where she was. After a little while we were able to find out where she was and that she was safe,” he said. Beaudoin was one of several hundred runners from the Ottawa area, who all managed to escape any injury. Kanata resident Steve Morin was a block away from the finish line of the Boston Marathon when the bombs went off, and he never heard a thing – at the time he was receiving a massage in the John Hancock building, along with several other runners who had already completed the 42-kilometre race.

Villages head off emerald ash borer with plantings, injections Emma Jackson

emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - The city will plant more than 100 trees in Manotick this spring to try to salvage the village’s tree cover before the emerald ash borer takes hold. Emerald ash borer is an invasive beetle that has devastated ash tree populations in urban Ottawa since 2008, and is now starting to show up in the city’s outskirts as well. The city estimates about 25 per cent of the city’s canopy is various species of ash, all of which are susceptible to the Asian beetle’s destructive feasts which destroy the tree’s main vein system. Currently there are only two options for dealing with the beetle: injecting trees with regular courses of expensive insecticide, or removing the trees altogether. At an information meeting at the Manotick arena on April 18, the Manotick Culture, Parks and Recreation Association invited city staff to speak to residents about a tree planting initiative meant to mitigate the loss of tree canopy as ash trees are removed from public property.

“Because the bug is here to stay, the biggest strategy is to diversify the trees we plant in the city,” said city staff Julie Jackson. “The fact is that all ash trees can’t be treated. (Tree removal and replacement) has to be part of your strategy.” At the moment, Manotick’s infestation levels are considered low to moderate. Last summer the city began injecting the village’s healthiest and most valuable ash trees with TreeAzin, an insecticide proven to keep the beetle at bay for about two years. This summer, the city will also plant 1,500 new trees across 14 villages. Villages in Rideau-Goulbourn ward – Manotick, Kars, Richmond and North Gower – will receive about 310 new trees beginning in mid-May, Jackson said. Osgoode ward villages, which such as Osgoode, Metcalfe and Vernon will receive just under 300 trees to replace their ash population. That includes a significant planting along Bank Street south of Vernon. Trees to replace Greely’s extensive ash population are not included in that number.

The new trees will be welldeveloped saplings about two centimetres in diameter. Most are native varieties – maple, red oak, service berry – but the city also plants hardy foreign varieties in urban areas. “We try to stick to native species but there’s nothing native about a city street,” said Jeff Kaster, a landscape architect consultant who helped Jackson survey the villages for ash trees and potential tree planting opportunities last fall. Manotick’s 107 trees will be spread across 10 priority parks and roads where clusters of ash trees could leave the local tree cover especially sparse in the future. Manotick’s priority parks include Centennial, South River Drive, Walter Upton-Collins, Miller’s Point, Bracken Field, Scharf, Goddard Street, Orchard Hollow, and Jeffrey Armstrong Memorial. Van Vliet Road is also a priority area, as it is lined with ash from South River Drive all the way to Christopher Drive. DESTRUCTION

Greely and Richmond are going to be especially hard hit

Emma jackson/Metroland

Julie Jackson with the city’s forestry department, speaks to a small crowd during an information about the emerald ash borer in Manotick on April 18. by the ash borer infestation, Kaster said. “Greely’s going to suffer a lot,” he said. Greely’s street trees are almost entirely ash, especially in the village’s estate lot subdivisions. Because of this,

Kaster said plans for Greely’s extensive street tree planting are tentatively postponed until the fall to allow for further consultation with residents, although planting will still go ahead in Greely’s parks this spring.

Richmond also stands to suffer as the beetle sweeps through eastern Ontario. “I feel badly for Richmond because a lot of their trees, ash or not, are at the end of their life. They’re going to lose a lot.”

Mill’s magic comes to life in fantasy novel Trueman said that’s the only way to really experience the mill. “It’s one thing to explain it, but to use more than that one sense you can smell the flour, hear the water and feel the rumbling of the building,” Trueman said. “I feel like the building can tell the story much better than I can.” Czerneda will launch her fourteenth novel at the mill’s open day festivities on May 4 with a book signing and reading event in Dickinson Square. Beginning at 10 a.m. vendors including Czerneda will set up in the square. Along with a pile of books to sell and sign, Czerneda and her husband will set up a photography exhibit inside the mill featuring his research photos from their two visits. Czerneda will likely read from her book several times during the afternoon. Throughout the day, visitors can also enjoy heritage games on the lawn, catch some music from Terry McGovern and the Retrosonics and check out a vintage wedding dress exhibit at Dickinson House run by the Rideau Township Historical Society.

EMC news - Watson’s Mill has always displayed a touch of the paranormal, but a Canadian author has taken the mill’s magic to a new level. Orillia-based writer Julie Czerneda has used Manotick’s mill as the setting for her new fantasy novel, A Turn of Light - where the pastoral village of Marrowdell is not quite what it seems. Marrowdell is caught between two realms, and at dusk one can catch a glimpse of the magic that thrives in the isolated valley. Like Manotick, Marrowdell’s mill is the heart of the village, although it is only used once a year and runs on magic. The plot centres around the miller’s daughter Jenn, who yearns for adventure but cannot leave because she ties the earthly and magical realms together. The 1,000-page tome is an epic of whimsy and wonder, Czerneda said, and as part of her world-building she travelled across the province looking for grist mills that could inform her writing. She found ruins, abandoned

buildings and many pieces of mills, but few that could truly show her how mills operate. So when she discovered Watson’s Mill online, she had to get there right away. “It was off season but (master miller Cam Trueman) ran the mill for me to hear how the mill sounds and feels,” Czerneda said. She peppered Trueman with dozens of questions, and later asked him to read parts of her novel that detail mill operations. “Just to be able to step back in time like that, and to see the equipment, feel the size of the room, the way the light came in, it made it feel real,” she said.

Comic Darren Frost to headline Shroomfest emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - Shroomfest organizers are bringing the magic back. Patrons of Metcalfe’s mushroom-themed fundraiser will once again enjoy a live comedian after dinner, and this year organizers have paid big bucks for controversial Canadian comic Darren Frost. “We’ve gone back to live comedy and we’ve hired a very well-respected comic,”

said organizer Al Graham. “(The audience would) rather have one good comic than three mediocre ones.” Shroomfest is an annual guys’ night out that raises money for charities and nonprofit organizations in rural south Ottawa. For the last few years the event has raised about $40,000 a year through ticket sales and silent and live auctions. Since the event started at the Metcalfe Arena eight years ago it has handed out more than $200,000 to the

Canadian comedian Darren Frost is gearing up to bring his excellent brand of humour to Shroomfest.

south Ottawa community. This year the May 2 event kicks off at 5:30 p.m. with a performance from local band Diamond Heart. The beer will be flowing as the more than 500 men head in for a dinner which AJ’s Catering puts on for a song. The event is largely sponsored by Continental Mushrooms and Carleton Mushrooms, although a host of other businesses support the fundraiser as well. Frost will take the stage after dinner to deliver his particular brand of irreverent commentary and x-rated comedy. Graham said the comedy has been disappointing for the past few years, and last year’s attempt at playing televised comedy instead of hiring live acts was a flop. The one element that will stay on, however, is the opportunity for local boys to get up on stage and try their own comedy on the crowd. “The open mic was fantastic last year, and that will continue,” Graham said. Graham said the live and silent auctions will also be a highlight this year, with a trip to the Daytona 500, hockey jerseys and many more prizes up for grabs. Graham said many businesses have stepped up to

Village Voices dreaming of spring Teaming up with Manotick Brass for joint spring concert Emma Jackson

emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - The Village Voices choir will ring in the spring with a concert dedicated to warmer weather and rising spirits. “It’s very upbeat,” said Cathy Graham, a second alto with the choir since 2004. The choir, an all-women group that draws singers from across rural south Ottawa, will partner with the Manotick Brass quintet at Barrhaven

United Church on Sunday, April 28. Beginning at 2:30 p.m., the singers and horn blowers will offer several hours of rousing music that promises something for everyone, Graham said. “Our director likes to do a variety of things so we tend to touch on all kinds of different kinds of music,” she said. “Some of them you’ll recognize, some of them are classical, some of them different languages.” From Les Miserables’ “Castle on a Cloud” to folk hymns like “The Sun Don’t Set in the Morning,” Graham said the choir will cover many genres in the course of a few hours. The Manotick Brass will also offer a variety of tunes. Their first set will celebrate the “best of British” with a spritely march from the Sec-

ond World War, an overture by Gilbert and Sullivan and a newly commissioned piece called “Scotland the Brave.” The second set is even more varied. Director Martin Luce said the group will move from “A Walk by the Sea,” full of folk songs about the ocean, to a polka piece, a gospel hymn, Whitney Houston’s “One Moment in Time” and then the ever-popular “Bugler’s Holiday.” “It really shows the brass off,” Luce said. The Manotick Brass have partnered with the choir once before, and Luce said this performance should be a treat for the audience. “We enjoy playing with a choir because it’s a nice contrast,” he said, noting that the contrast is especially noticeable with an all-women’s choir. “We’re always looking

Rural Para Transpo service under fire Continued from the front

Brenda Brake uses a wheelchair and has been a Para Transpo rider for eight years. She’s from Manotick and the village is home to her friends, family and her doctor, but Brake hasn’t been able to make it to a doctor’s appointment for the past year because she now lives in Barrhaven – the urban area. That is due to a separate but related issue – Para service is overloaded and the process of booking a ride is harried and inconsistent, she said. But even if she does manage to get to Manotick, she would have to take Para Transpo back to Barrhaven in order to get a ride to the home of a friend or family member in Manotick. Instead, Brake has taken to meeting her daughter for lunch at a restaurant in Barrhaven. “The question is why they changed anything in the first place,” Brake said. “It just doesn’t make sense.” Some of the transit commissioners sympathized. While the commission’s chairwoman, Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans,

left the room to speak to the media with OC Transpo general manager John Manconi, Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson was directing staff to look at consulting disabled transit users in the rural area about their needs. Public consultations on Para Transpo are already slated for this summer, she said, so staff should use that opportunity to get a full picture of the challenges disabled transit users face, especially in the rural areas. The issue affects just under 100 people who need accessible transit service in the city’s rural areas, Wilkinson said. She wants staff to review their specific needs and suggestions that could improve their access to transit. Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder said maybe the city needs to think outside the box when it comes to Para Transpo, especially in rural areas. Ottawa has invested a lot of money into making the city accessible, whether it’s curb cuts in sidewalks or low-floor buses, Harder said. The city should focus its efforts on encouraging and helping people with accessibility challenges take advantage of those in-

vestments, Harder said. Encourging riders to book shorter trips on Para Transpo is one way, Harder said. Perhaps Para could serve more people if riders could book a trip from their door to an accessible transit station and take conventional transit for the bulk of their trips, she said. “Certainly an interesting approach but it’s a very big question,” said Pat Scrimgeour, manager of transit planning and reporting. Para Transpo has a mandate to provide door-to-door service, and while riders can request a shorter trip, they are not encouraged to do that, he added. There is a need for Ottawa to look at a large-scale rethink of how it wants to provide transit service for disabled people, said John Manconi, the general manager of OC Transpo. “We need a large-scale policy discussion with some difficult dialogue around eligibility and what rules you want to use,” Manconi said. It would involve significant financial considerations Manconi wasn’t prepared to address at the April 17 meeting. R0012047673

BRIER DODGE/METROLAND

Mark Monahan, executive director for RBC Bluesfest, announces the headline act for opening night at this year’s festival – the Black Keys.

Black Keys to headline first night of RBC Bluesfest Organizers expect summer concerts to hit capacity Brier Dodge

brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - The Black Keys will play the opening night of Ottawa’s biggest musical festival, RBC Bluesfest, on July 4, said festival executive director Mark Monahan at an April 18 announcement. “In terms of name drop power, it’s a great addition,” he said. The Black Keys are the duo of vocalist and guitarist

Dan Auerback and drummerproducer Patrick Carney, and have won several Grammy Awards. Last time the Black Keys played Bluesfest, in 2011, a massive rainstorm soaked concert-goers and delayed the show until 10:20 p.m., sending the act past the festival’s 11 p.m. curfew. “We’re hoping to start the show a little earlier,” Monahan said. “It can only get better.” He also said ticket sales have been much higher than in past years, with youth passes doubling in sales and the three-and five-day passes selling better than expected. It’s led the organizers to limit the total number of tickets sold per night to 25,000, which Monahan expects to hit on half the nights.

“It’s not a perfect science, because we are a 10 day event,” he said. Several new acts were also announced on April 18, including R&B artist Nick Waterhouse, gospel band the Relatives, electro/house duo DVBBS, producer Adrian Lux, Canadian band Yukon Blonde, pop-rock Imaginary Cities, rapper Everlast and electronic group the Funk Hunters. Monahan said 99 per cent of the festival lineup has now been confirmed. He said it’s a tricky balance to find what is missing from each year’s lineup and booking in new bands who have availability. Bluesfest also released the stages and times of acts on April 18 on their website at www.ottawabluesfest.ca.

Ottawa runners arrive home safe and sound Continued from the front

A manager announced an “incident had just occurred” and all runners were asked to proceed away from the finish line area. “We were all asked to leave and went upstairs on the streets,” said Morin. “The streets were just crazy with people in shock and you could smell the bomb blast,” he said. It was impossible to walk on the roads, he said, with the streets flooded with SWAT teams, ambulance and other emergency workers. “People were crying,” he said. “They said there were body parts everywhere.” Morin said he tried not to look at the area of the bomb blast. He walked five kilometres to meet up with his family, who had accompanied him to watch the marathon. Along the way, Morin received texts from concerned friends and family members. “Everyone was texting me to ask if I was OK,” he said. “I texted them I was fine.” Morin said runners were having trouble making calls on their cellphones, but were able to send out texts. “We relied on strangers and borrowed their cellphones and got a lot of help from Boston people – they were very friendly.” Morin said he hopes the tragedy won’t hurt the marathon in the future. “I’m trying to figure this out today,” he said, a day after the event. “I don’t think it will stop people from doing it (competing in marathons). I think it will unite people around not letting the terrorists affect how we behave.” Indeed, Beaudoin said he’s “more determined than ever” to return to Boston for next year’s race. “We’re not going to let that experience slow us down. We’re not going to be deterred by these events,” he said. “Everybody that was qualified this year should make a point to go back to honour the people who were injured or lost their life.” BOMB

No Canadians were injured at the marathon, according to the Ministry of Foreign of Affairs on April 15. Jane Armstrong, a Kanata Lakes woman who trains runners in duathlon, triathlon and

running events, was at home watching the results live via the Internet. She was tracking two of her students as well as some friends from Ottawa’s running community competing in the event.

The streets were just crazy with people in shock and you could smell the bomb blast. STEVE MORIN

One of her students Jenny Hopkins had already finished the race, but her other student, Terri Bolster, still had more than an hour before she would reach the finish line. “I stopped at one point, went for a run and a bike workout for one hour around the time of the explosion,” said Armstrong. When she returned to check the race results on the computer, the website listed Bolster as having completed 40 kilometres. “I could tell she was running strong so I was puzzled,” said Armstrong. Then the emails and phone calls started pouring in. “What’s going on in Boston, Jane? Do you know?” read one email. Armstrong then checked for media reports, and learned bombs had gone off near the finish line. “Then I panicked,” she said. “Terri had to be close to the explosion or right in the thick of it.” Armstrong went to her Facebook home page, where she was connected with hundreds of runners and running groups, and left messages for her two students. Both students eventually responded that they were alive and unhurt. Bolster, a 62-year-old Orléans woman and a retired teacher, said she’d been one kilometre away from the finish line when the bombs went off. “All the runners were panicked,” Bolster later told Armstrong. The streets near the finish line were shut down and congested with people and the runners were forced to stop. “They were freezing,” said Armstrong. “They started to shiver, muscles were seizing up. A stranger gave (Bolster) a

sweatshirt to stay warm.” Stewart Campbell, a former Renfrew resident who now lives in Pembroke, celebrated his 55th birthday by completing the 117th edition of one of the world’s most prestigious road races. Campbell finished his 25th marathon in 3 hours and 11 minutes. But about an hour later one of his Pembroke running colleagues, Bob Bobeldijk, 76, was within about 300 metres of the finish line where the first bomb exploded. Bobeldijk kept on running, but 10 seconds later a second bomb went off, closer to him, and security people rushed onto the course and prevented any runners from continuing. Earlier in the race, Bobeldijk stopped to use one of the race course portable washrooms, which Campbell said may have saved his life.

One of Boston’s finest hours

T

ragedies bring out the best and the worst in people. In the case of the explosions at the Boston Marathon on April 15, the worst is painfully obvious. Three people dead, including an eight-year-old boy, and more than 100 others injured. This was an attempt to create terror, to hurt people, possibly to make a political statement. When the bombs went off, a flood of people rushed onto the streets. At first, it was a knee-jerk reaction to the horror and confusion of the scene. But almost immediately afterwards, another, larger flood of people rushed towards the site of the blasts, nurses, doctors, paramedics and emergency workers helping the victims and sealing off the area. Runners stranded en route to the finish line were surrounded by Boston residents who offered them clothing, water, warm clothing and cellphones to contact their loved ones. If this was one of Boston’s worst hours, it was also one of its finest. This act of terror did not have the presumably desired effect, if the reactions of some of the runners we spoke to following the blast is anything to judge by. Many runners praised the marathon and said they

hoped to compete in it again. Ottawa will play host to its own prestigious running event, Ottawa race weekend on May 24 and 25. Following the explosions at the Boston Marathon, Ottawa race weekend organizers acknowledged that the attack made them more conscious about security surrounding the annual race. But it certainly won’t stop them from holding the event. Terrorists have tried in the past to instill a culture of fear surrounding large public gatherings – for instance the backpack bombing at the 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympics Games that killed two people and injured 120. But every Olympics since has simply grown bigger and better. And the athletes and the fans continue to flock to the events. Acts of terrorism are hard to predict and difficult to completely prevent, however they are rare events and have a negligible effect on public opinion, except to make them more security conscious. The Boston Marathon bombing is no different. The resiliency of the fans and runners in the face of a horrific crime is one more example of tragedy bringing out the best in people.

Life on Mars: the job-cutting economics of science fiction

F

ew people realize the connection between economics and science fiction, but the similarities are dramatic. Most obvious, is the language component. The jargon-laden gibberish spoken by economists closely resembles the techno-slang uttered by space warriors. For one there is incentivization and confronting redundancies, for the other there is the antigravity field and the leap to hyperspace — both equally intelligible. But there are other similarities, such as the common belief in vaporization. This is most apparent when attacks on budget deficits are in season, as they are now. Both corporate and governmental decision-makers are vigorously seeking to better their bottom line. At tax time, we in Ottawa know what those who are doing the cutting think: they reduce their costs and their bottom line looks better. For a corporation, that means increased value for shareholders; for a government, it means applause from the media and some of the voters. Thus, you get events like government cuts to the compliance program of the Canada Revenue Agency, which will involve about 300 full-time jobs. You get decisions like the closing of seven Department of Fisheries and Oceans libraries across the country, one of them opened only last

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town year. The move has been deplored in the scientific community. No figures about jobs lost have been released, but you know there will be some. We can leave to more learned people the assessment of the efficiencies involved. Can more really be done with less, as the job-slashers always insist? There’s always a first time. More important, and less frequently examined, is the question of what happens to those people whose jobs are lost. Somehow an assumption is made that these cuts have no impact. Those who lose their jobs happily trundle off to other jobs. Or, perhaps, they just vanish, leaving blameless employers happily to contemplate their improved bottom line. The concept of the vaporized unemployed fits nicely with the theory that societal happiness is the sum of all the corporate and governPublished weekly by:

mental bottom lines. But what if laid-off people don’t actually disappear? What if they turn up at some other office looking for work? And what if that office is in the process of confronting redundancies too? What you have then is a number of people who are out of work, who can’t buy things, who pay less or no taxes. That doesn’t help the economy. The more cuts are made, the more of such people there are. Assuming they are not vaporized. In addition to the economic cost are the human costs — children who have to do without, parents who can’t afford day care. There are certainly corporate and government economists out there who can explain how this benefits our society, but their explanations escape me right now. When governments say they want to crack down on tax evasion, how does that go with laying off some of the people involved in that? When governments say that job creation is their aim, how is that aim advanced by eliminating jobs? Perhaps in outer space, it works, where the rules may be different. Perhaps in outer space, you can create jobs by cutting jobs. Perhaps in outer space that’s the usual way of doing things.

Not having any knowledge to the contrary, we can imagine that, in outer space, budget deficits can be put into a transporter and made to vanish into another galaxy. We can imagine that jobs can be created with a Laser Job Creation Apparatus (patent pending). It is a bit harder to imagine that down here. If the jobless are vaporized, who are all those folks down at the food bank? Yet it clearly is part of the belief systems of those who are making the big decisions. It can’t do any hard harm to cut 300 jobs, they reason. Actually, it will do good. Yeah, that’s the ticket. It works on Mars.

Kids with Asperger’s, autism speak out Letter addresses issues of bullying, autism awareness Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news – A group of boys diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome or autism have written a letter to the public asking people to be open minded and to try and understand what it is like to have a disability. “I am a 12-year-old boy who has to deal with social challenges every single day that most people do not have to worry about,” Twelve-yearold Nick Fejes wrote. “I often will get into fights but not really understand what started it in the first place and I also have a hard time perceiving other people’s side of the story. It is hard for me to process my emotions. I wish that most people in the general public, the average Canadian citizen, would view kids on the spectrum as actual people, rather than “something strange.” Nick is but one voice of the many,

all saying the same thing, simply, they want to be heard and to be treated as normal. The group of boys attend a private school in the city’s west end called Mindware, which offers children with learning disabilities, a different approach to learning. The school runs a daytime and after-school social group which helps boys like Nick work on social interactions and feelings. It was during this group time that teacher Susan Mancini worked with the boys on expressing their feelings on paper. “Usually when they first come to the school they are withdrawn, mistrusting and scared,” Mancini said. “I noticed the kids needed to vent. To get their words out. At first I would transcribe what they were saying, after that, the boys began to write their own words down.” The group shared their thoughts with each other and then, tentatively, with the rest of the school. “They were nervous to share, but once they saw how well other students in the school responded, the group decided to stretch their reach a little farther. They thought what if we could get it out to the general public?” she said.

Letter from the group: DEAR PUBLIC: We are a group of able people who have decided to write a letter to the public to help others understand us. Below, you can read a testimonial from each member of our classroom team: I am a 13-year-old kid who is diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum and I struggle everyday because there are lots of parts of my day where I feel stressed or mad. I try to start fresh with a new day but every day for some reason I feel hurt and cry often. A lot of people make fun of me because I am sensitive but deep down I am just a normal person. Many people have thought I am weird in the past or say that I am not smart but I just ask to be treated like a normal person. - Callum Nightingale I am a 10-year-old boy who has to deal with Asperger’s. Most days I have to hold off my emotions. When I can’t hold off, I start too cry and shut down. All that I wish is that all people would treat me like a normal person. Not many people support me and sometimes I feel all alone in this world. When I am lucky, I get some support. - Josh Wells I am a 12-year-old boy who has to deal with social challenges every single day that most people do not have to worry about. I often will get into fights but not really understand what started it in the first place and I also have a hard time perceiving other people’s side of the story. It is hard for me to process my emotions. I wish that most people in the general public, the average Canadian citizen, would view kids on the spectrum as actual people, rather than “something strange.” -Nick Fejes We have come together as a social skills class to write this letter to the public. We want them to know that we are all human beings. So what if we have a disability? We may have challenges in life but we still want to be viewed as normal people. We still have the right to a good education, respect from those around us, to interact with others without exclusion, and we have the right to be treated as a valuable human being. We wish to simply be understood. SINCERELY, CLASSMATES

The goal is to let the public know how people with a disability feels on a daily basis; what it feels like when they are teased, or mistreated. “We want the world to understand,” Callum Nightingale said. R0012051059

Some of the feelings in the letter are raw and incredibly open. Twelve-year-old Nikita Sautchenko, an avid gamer with Asperger’s syndrome, said he feels just an average kid, but students in his former public school treated him poorly on a daily basis. “It got to the point where I was turning into a bully just to keep them away from me,” he said. Creating a hard shell on the surface, Nikita admits he was battling depression and thoughts of suicide when he came home. “I wish that the general public or people who are “normal” would view people on the spectrum as regular people and not weirdos or outcasts,” Nikita wrote. Now the social group would like to share their message with as many people who care to listen. For them, the group describes this crusade as not only about teaching the world about treating them better, it’s about stopping bullying from happening to other children like them. Each one of the students who

wrote the letter at one time attended public school, before transferring to Mindware. The bullying, according to the group, starts around Grade 3. “Right around the time kids start to notice there is something different about you,” Nick said. It can start out small, either they don’t get picked for a team, or they get ignored in the schoolyard, but each one of the boys says that it escalates quickly to name calling, teasing and exclusion. The purpose of the letter is to foster change. “I don’t want other kids to have to go through what we did,” Jayden Findlay said. “It needs to change. Everyone needs to change.” The boys come from different parts of the city and each admit they would like the change to start in their own neighbourhoods, but would be happy if any school, parent or youth would listen to them. Callum said spreading the word today is important, because he won’t always have his school to make him feel safe. “Here everyone understands you, but eventually, you have to go out in the real world and it would be nice to know that people out there understand you,” Callum said. The next step for the group will be to spread their message to different school boards and groups who are willing to listen. Mancini said she will meet with different schools, presenting their letter and hopefully, the boys will have a chance to hold presentations on the issue.

Isle in the River’s spring play to honour war heroes World War I vets the focus of French postwar comedy Staff

EMC news - This spring, the Isle in the River Review theatre troupe in Osgoode will take a different direction with its rendition of Heroes, Tom Stoppard’s English adaptation of Gerald Sibleyras’ play Le Vent des Peupliers and winner of the 2006 Lawrence Olivier award for comedy. The three-man play takes place on the isolated terrace of a French military hospital in 1959 where World War I veterans Gustave, Philippe, and Henri are spending the twilight of their lives. The trio passes each day in neverending rounds of bickering, grousing about the staff (especially tiny Sister Marguerite, whom, rumor has it, harbours homicidal thoughts toward the patients), fantasizing about comely women and dreaming of escape.

“It’s a funny play, a gentle comedy that has been described as The Odd Couple for three,” says director Andre Dimitrijevic. “I first saw this play a few years ago at a performance for high school students. I was surprised at how much they understood and enjoyed the play. Their laughter was contagious.” The play opens May 3 and runs May 4, 5, 9, 10 and 11 at the Osgoode Community Centre. ITR’s regulars will recognize cast members Len Trembley and Dirk Visbach from a number of previous plays, which are hosted at the community centre in spring and fall. Although this is Joel Rahn’s first appearance with ITR, he is a longstanding actor in the Ottawa area, having performed with Phoenix Players and Ottawa Little Theatre and most recently with the Greely Players in The Wizard of Oz. Dimitrijevic has also been involved with community theatre groups in Cumberland, Orleans, New Edinburgh, Nepean, Osgoode and Gatineau and first joined ITR in 2011 as an actor in Ghost of a Chance. But Dimitrijevic points to the play’s

writer Tom Stoppard as the true hero. “He’s a prolific writer who has won a number of awards, including four Tonys and an Oscar for his screenplay for the movie Shakespeare in Love,” he said. “But what I particularly like about Stoppard is his rapier-sharp wit, dazzling use of language, and keen observations of human nature.” No matter what is going on in your world, you will forget it all while enjoying these 90 minutes of comic curmudgeonery, camaraderie and nostalgia, Dimitrijevic said. “You’ll come to care about the characters and you’ll be happier for having made the journey,” he said. Tickets are $18 for adults and $15 for seniors and students. Evening shows start at 7:30 p.m. And The matinee Sunday show on May 5 begins at 2 p.m. The dinner theatre performance on May 11 will again feature caterer David Smith beginning at 6 p.m., and tickets for dinner and a show are $48.

EMC news - Giving residents the ability to search for city services and information by neighbourhood is so important it will be the focus of a new tool that will launch on ottawa.ca in June. The map-based application called In My Neighbourhood will let people search for things like what types of swimming lessons are offered at pools near where they live, work, or go to school. It will include information on things like the hours of nearby library branches and information about local road construction projects. “It’s a way for people to find out the service the city has that have value to them,” said Donna Gray, the director of Service Ottawa. Many of the requests for information the city receives have a location-specific focus, so it only makes sense to present information in a way that has meaning to people, Gray said. “The city is defined by its geography and people relate to it through its geography,” said

Rob Collins, the city’s chief information officer. The tool is part of a larger overhaul of the city’s map-based software. The cumbersome and outdated eMap tool will be replaced with a slicker format the city has dubbed geoOttawa. One of the most useful features will be that the new map platform will contain up-to-date data from all city departments. “It means all parts of the City of Ottawa are starting to work from the same database,” instead of just looking at “snapshots” of the information, said Laine Wyman, project manager for the city’s geographic information systems and citizen-centric projects. “I can’t overemphasize how important this is,” he added. That will make data collection and presentation more efficient, but it also means the city -- and residents -- can do more with the information and use it in new ways, Wyman said. GeoOttawa will look like Google Maps and have mobile and light versions, which is not currently the case with eMap. EMap is part of an internal city staff tool called MAP (Mu-

nicipal Application Partnership) that 2,300 city workers use to access and store information about things ranging from planning approvals to bylaw enforcement and road inventories. MAP was brought in after amalgamation, but the underlying software it’s based on hasn’t been supported by its manufacturer for eight years. Gaining access to MAP is an ongoing struggle between city councillors and staff. Councillors used to be able to use the system until approximately a year ago, when they were shut out of the system and forced to request city staff to look up the information on their behalf. Councillors will be getting an update about why they no longer have access to that information at the next finance and economic development committee meeting after RideauRockcliffe Coun. Peter Clark brought it up during an April 10 council meeting. Mayor Jim Watson said the issue is entangled with privacy regulations related to the municipal freedom of information and protection of privacy act and the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation. “I really find that the rationale given for MFIPPA and MPAC are not intended … to hamper councillors’ access to information,” Clark said. “It’s not as if the members around this table are not to be trusted.”

Mary grew her own garden through the catalogue

T

he Steele-Briggs seed catalogue was now mine. Mother’s order had long since arrived. All over the house, for weeks, Mother had been urging little flat wood boxes of earth to show signs of life. These boxes emerged every year, filled with earth by Father, and until it was time to plant the sprouts out in the garden, they sat on benches and chairs, watched and watered by Mother. When Mother first planted the seeds, I was wild with excitement. I checked every day to see if anything had sprung up, but after days and days of constant vigilance, I lost interest, and instead concentrated on the seed catalogues, for which I had great plans. Using one of the roughlined scribblers Mother had bought from Ritz’s Drug Store in Renfrew on the One-Cent-

Sale, I re-created my very own seed catalogue. When I was finished, it didn’t at all look like the Steele-Briggs one that came in wintertime. The first thing I did was cut out all the pictures in the catalogue that were in colour. Then I sorted the pictures in two piles ... one for vegetables and one for flowers When that job was finished, I next arranged the flowers into little piles, with my very favourites on top, and my least favourite ones on the bottom. I was especially fond of the pictures of the roses. The red ones. And there were pink and yellow ones too, but the bloodred ones, I thought were very special. Mother never ordered roses, which was a big disappointment to me, but she said the ground out at Northcote wasn’t good enough for rose bushes. I was at the stage in my life when I loved to draw. And so

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories I drew little gardens on each page of the big scribbler with the rough pages and the shiny black cover. I coloured the pages with my crayons, and I thought I had done a good enough job to even take the finished book to show Miss Crosby at the Northcote School. Again, my sister Audrey advised me to keep it at home, since it may cause bad Marguirite to go into a fit of jealousy, and goodness knows what that could mean! And so I would begin to create my very own catalogue. The roses went onto a page

first. The red ones. Another page of drawings, and then the pink roses, and finally, the yellow ones. By the time I had worked through all the little piles of cut-out flowers and pasted them into the scribbler, each separated by a crayon-coloured drawing, the scribbler was so fat, it was impossible to keep it closed. But if nothing else, those scribblers were a bargain. There were still plenty of empty pages left for the pictures of my favourite vegetables. I was never that fond of tur-

nips or cabbages, but bloodred tomatoes and green cucumbers, yellow beans, and radishes, all had their own pages in my ‘seed catalogue’. My brother Emerson, who was a far better artist that I was, and never let me forget it, laughed at my attempt at drawing gardens in my scribbler. But Mother said my pictures reminded her of the big calendar we got from Scott’s Hardware that year which was a country scene taken by a real camera. And that was good enough for me! When finally, the little wood boxes of earth scattered all over the house started to sprout, and finally grow a few inches, my interest was renewed. I again looked every day to see their growth, even though my sister Audrey reminded me “a watched pot never boils,” which I finallly realized had nothing to do with a pot on the stove.

I kept my handmade seed catalogue under my bed for the weeks it took for the wood boxes to produce enough growth to move the plants to the garden and the flower beds. Every so often I would take it out, swelled as it was to three times its size, and leaf through it, anxious for the day I could take it out to the garden. Because when you could finally tell which plants would be carrots, and which would be cucumbers, and which flower bed would produce asters or cosmos, I would spend many a happy hour outside with my catalogue, matching my cutout pictures to what was taking new life in the ground back in those depression years when we were expected to amuse ourselves without benefit. It was a simple way of spending many happy hours free of costly toys. Like making rag dolls, whittling, carving sling-shots, boiling weeds to make coloured water, and building sand castles on the banks of the Bonnechere River, the price was just right.

O-Train to be shut down as expansion gets underway Steph Willems

Steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news – Taking advantage of lower ridership rates between school years, work begins on the O-Train service expansion project on April 27. Between that date and Sept. 2, the transit line will be shut down to make way for track, bridge and tunnel maintenance, station upgrades, and the construction of passing tracks in two locations - one of them near Gladstone Avenue, the other by Brookfield Road. The $59 million project was approved by city council in 2011. During the shutdown, service to each of the five OTrain stations will be offered by Route 107. That route will follow the Southeast Transitway from South Key Station to Heron, then connects to Bronson

via Data Centre Avenue. The route then performs a loop of Campus/University Avenue at Carleton University before leaving Bronson to connect to Preston Street via Carling Avenue. It then continues down Preston to Albert Street in order to reach the Lebreton Transitway Station. Construction of passing tracks will allow for double the amount of trains to run – four instead of two – with service going from every 15 minutes to every eight minutes after the new infrastructure has been tested. The city will receive delivery of six new diesel Alstom Coradia Lint trains this fall to replace the three Bombardier trains that have been in service since the line opened in 2001. The city has notified Carleton University that there will be some traffic congestion in

A SOLD OUT EVENT LAST YEAR & back by popular demand...

the area of the River Building once work commences. As of press time, OC Transpo has not responded to requests for information on the possibility of disruptions in the areas where passing tracks are being constructed. Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs, whose eastern ward boundary is the O-Train line, said her office has had “no notification (that) it would be required.” Upgrades to increase the OTrain’s capacity are being carried out this year in advance of the planned shutdown of Hurdman Station in 2015. When that major transit hub is closed during the construction of the Confederation LRT line, the O-Train should be able to handle the increased amount of riders expected to use the service as an interim measure.

Green card gets the green light Commission OKs Presto card to launch July 1 Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

A Win-Win for Canadian Infrastructure Like Canada’s baby boomers, many of our roads and bridges are getting older and will need to retire in the next 20 years. That means the country has two expensive, simultaneous problems. The number of people in Canada over 65 will double from 4.7 million to 9.3 million within two decades, just as we must pay to replace or reconstruct numerous bigcity thoroughfares and bridges that are between four and six decades old. Is there a way for each to help fund the other? Pension plans have investment capital but need income. Infrastructure needs capital and can provide income. Why not allow the pension funds to profit from investments in building, maintaining and operating roads, bridges and transit? In fact, this is already happening. Those living in the Greater Toronto Area are familiar with the success of Highway 407, a private highway that runs 108 km between Burlington and Pickering. The electronic billing system allowed 114 million trips in 2010 to be completed with no inconvenient tollgate stops. So successful is this 400-series highway that its owners are now expanding it east to Oshawa, with two new links south to Highway 401. The highway is not only good for drivers, but also for retirees. Pension plans, mutual funds and others have purchased $4-billion in bonds in Highway 407, and the Canada Pension Plan — with a 40% stake — is one of its largest shareholders. So when Canadians drive this private highway, they are contributing to their retirement. With $174.4-million in net earnings in this year, the highway can offer lucrative interest and dividends that will help fund the golden years of Canadians. Pension funds are also invested in the transit business. A private-sector consortium designed, built, and partially financed the 19.5 km Canada Line in British Columbia and will operate it for 35 years. The Line links Vancouver to Richmond and the airport. With $720-million from the private sector, it is the biggest capital project in British Columbia’s history, saving the province saved an estimated $92-million. One of the lead shareholders in the project is the British Columbia Investment Management Corporation, which invests on behalf of the pension plans of 500,000 people. Another is the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec, which manages the province’s public sector pensions. For this model to work, policy makers must do three things. First, before each major project, they must ask: can the private sector build, finance, own and/or operate the asset better and more affordably than government?

EMC news - OC Transpo has the go-ahead to roll out Presto smart cards for fare payment on July 1. The cards won’t be compatible with the Presto system in the GTA – yet – and transit commissioners were concerned about the delay in updating the cards’ cash balance online, but those worries weren’t enough for the commission to put the brakes on the smart card fare system. Starting May 18, OC Transpo will begin to distribute 184,000 of the remaining 200,000 free Presto cards the city initially planned to give out last year. The launch was plagued with delays and the past year has been “difficult, complex and (a) resource intensive project,” but the system is now ready to go, OC Transpo general manager John Manconi told the transit commission on April 17. Transit commission chairwoman Coun. Diane Deans called the final decision to OK Presto a “historic day” in Ottawa.

After a year of delays, testing and tracking, the transit commission is more confident in moving forward with Presto now than it was a year ago, Deans added. As with any large, technical system, there will be glitches, Manconi said. But there are no system-wide issues that would cause concern, he added. “It certainly seems that we’ve turned the corner from a mood of cynicism to optimism,” said transit commissioner and Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess. Beyond technical problems there are other nagging issues that bothered transit commissioners. One issue is the 24- to 48hour delay between when customers top up the cash balance on their cards and when they have access to use that money on a bus. A delay is undesirable, commissioners agreed, but if it’s unavoidable for technical reasons, Metrolinx should at least try to ensure the delay is consistent. A range causes confusion, said new commissioner Mark Johnson during his first meeting. “It would be good to have a defined time period so as to avoid customer confusion,” Johnson said. Manconi said he and OC Transpo will come back at some time in the future with a better solution. Ottawa Presto cardholders

won’t yet be able to tap their cards on Presto readers in Toronto or Hamilton. There is no date on when that might happen. The GTA system will be upgraded before the end of the year and then Metrolinx will be making the decision about when to upgrade Ottawa to that same system to ensure all cards work in both regions. A Presto replacement for paper tickets is not being addressed right now. For Para Transpo, the city will be spending $3 million to find an interim technological solution to bridge the gap between OC Transpo passes and the types of fare payments that are accepted on Para Transpo.

sales and information centres, as well as Transitway stations on a rotating schedules. Select library branches across the city will also begin distributing the cards starting June 3. OC Transpo will have Presto outreach targeted at park-andride pass holders on May 17 and 18. Other selected groups, including seniors, community pass holders and certain community organizations and health centres will also be the focus of OC Transpo’s efforts to distribute Presto cards over the summer. Ecopass holders will be able to get a Presto card as their annual passes expire between August and October.

GET A CARD

COSTS

One of the main lessons learned over the past year was to avoid a big release of Presto cards all at once, Manconi said. “A staged and measured release is key,” he said, but the number 1 objective is still to get the card into people’s hands and get them using it. Cards will be available in a number of ways. During the test period, demand for cards was highest through the website, www.prestocard.ca, and that’s the first spot most riders will be able to get one on May 18. Starting May 27, riders will be able to pick up a card at city client service centres, OC Transpo

The overall cost to adopt the Presto system in Ottawa has gone up to $34.2 million, but the city will only pay $31.2 million – the rest will be covered by Metrolinx. The provincial agency had already committed to reimbursing the city for around $3 million to cover the cost of delays and lost revenue due to the delays. Metrolinx has now agreed to cover another $1.5 million in costs. It’s important to remember that saving money isn’t the intent of moving to a smart-card payment system, Manconi said. The idea is to provide better service that attracts more riders, he said.

If the answer is yes, the second step is an open and fair competition among bidders. Limiting competition to favoured interest groups only drives up project cost, leading to higher taxes, tolls and fares for taxpayers and commuters.

Third, the government should resist any temptation to play matchmaker. While large pools of capital make pension funds a perfect fit, tendering processes should not be biased towards them. Nor should politicians intervene to force public plans like the CPP or the Caisse to invest in particular projects.

Metcalfe soccer a breath of fresh air EMC sports - Soccer season is upon us, and Metcalfe’s community program is warming up for an energetic eight weeks of drills, thrills and friendly scrimmage. The weekly program is a starter league, mostly geared to younger tots who have never played soccer before and want to try it out. “Its a great way to get the kids out into the fresh air, get them running around even if its just for an hour,” said organizer Pam Furlong, who has taken over the league this year with the help of other parent volunteers. “It lets them figure out if they want to go into some of the more serious leagues.” The program is now accepting registrations, and the season will start May 9 or 16 depending on field conditions at McKendry Park in Metcalfe. The program wraps up at the end of June. Every Thursday,

players and their parents arrive at McKendry Park at 6:30 p.m. for a half hour of skill-building drills and games, followed by about 20 minutes of scrimmage. The evening ends with a cool treat for everyone.

For a lot of kids, this is the only bit of sports that they will get. Pam Furlong

“For a lot of kids, this is the only bit of sports that they will get,” Furlong said. On the field, the kids are split into grade levels, and Furlong said the biggest groups by far are the kindergartens and Grade 1s. The entire program is run by parent volunteers - and Furlong said every parent becomes a volunteer at some point in the season. “When I get a new person, I tell them it is a parent-run association so every parent

is expected to pitch in where needed, whether its being a coach or a team cheerleader,” Furlong said. The program is “low-tech,” Furlong said. No uniforms are required, just cleats and high socks and an age-appropriate soccer ball. The league provides pinneys for scrimmage. A special needs program runs simultaneously, and welcomes kids and their siblings to do skills development drills to their own level of capability. Parents who have not registered yet can show up on Thursday May 9 or 16 to register on the spot. Fees are $15 per child or $30 per family. For more information contact Furlong at metcalfesoccer@ gmail.com. Soccer has become the most common sport for both boys and girls. Once seen as a European or South American sport, soccer has caught on among Canadian youth, with nearly 20 per cent of young people playing the game.

No investigative powers for ombudsman Public board trustees vote down motion to give Ombudsman powers to probe school boards Eddie Rwema

eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC news – A motion by a south Ottawa public trustee to give the Ontario ombudsman extra authority to investigate and intervene in complaints that aren’t resolved within the school boards, was voted down on April 2. Gloucester-Southgate trustee Mark Fisher, brought forward the motion seeking support from his fellow trustees to write a letter to the premier and leaders of the official opposition, asking them to re-introduce and support legislation to modernize the Ombudsman act. Fisher was the only one that voted in favour of the motion. “I am disappointed but certainly, that will not stop me as an individual trustee moving forward and trying to advocate for this kind of change,” said Fisher. The legislation that Fisher is fighting for would allow the ombudsman to investigate public complaints involving school boards as well as the governing bodies of universities, hospitals and municipalities “The majority of the trustees felt that if the Ombudsman had the responsibility to investigate public complaints that would undermine and take away the responsibility from school boards,” he said.

Early Bird Fees Until April 30th!

“I think there is a lot of merit in putting in place another level of recourse for parents.” According to the 2011-12 annual report of the ombudsman, Ontario has fallen behind in oversight of organizations providing critical public services referred to as the “MUSH” sector – municipalities, universities, school boards, hospitals, nursing homes and long-term care facilities, police, and children’s aid societies. “There are parents that find themselves in tough situations and feel they need to seek out another avenue to get another hearing in a more fair and impartial way,” said Fisher. “Extending these responsibilities to the office of the Ombudsman made ultimate sense to me.” Fisher said he wished trustees had taken more time to understand how the office of the Ombudsman works and how they could relate to that office in a meaningful and respectful way. “At the end of the day the Ombudsman is not going to look at any complaint unless due process has been followed and exhausted at the local level – this includes engaging the teacher, then the principal, school board officials and trustees,” he said. He said the legislation seeks to enhance the level of transparency and accountability in the education sector. Rideau-Vanier trustee Rob Campbell who chose to abstain said it was unfortunate that the motion was defeated without seeking to improve it. “I think it is too bad that the board as a whole wasn’t more supportive and I think there was something of value in his motion,” said Campbell. Campbell said he suggested a few amendments, which Fisher didn’t want to incorporate in his motion, including one that sought the motion to just focus on school boards. “He declined to seek those amend-

ments so I had to abstain, though I support his motion in principle,” said Campbell. “If his motion had passed that would be one more avenue for recourse for citizens and I am confident the people I represent would be all for it.” Campbell added that for years now trustees across the province have felt their powers and authority are not respected. Fisher said voting down his motion will not stop him from continuing to advocate for it. “I am going to continue moving forward because I know it is the right thing to do,” Fisher said. “I have received messages from people across Ontario, commending me on the effort and indicating their disappointment that the board didn’t support it. I am going to talk to local MPPs, write a letter to the premier of Ontario and leaders of the opposition asking them to re-introduce legislation that died because of prolongation.” In 2011-12, the ombudsman received a record number of complaints and inquiries about the MUSH sector. During the same period, the ombudsman received 119complaints and inquiries about Ontario’s school boards. None of them could be dealt with. Many were from parents concerned

Advertorial

Fabricland is celebrating their 45th anniversary Fabricland: Where the Smart Money Goes to Sew Up the Savings By Brian Turner As Fabricland prepares to celebrate its 45th anniversary, their team looks back at a world of changes in clothing creation, home décor, and crafting, but what has remained constant since their first small store opened in Toronto in 1968 is the commitment to deliver exceptional product lines at the lowest price with superior customer service. Now among 170 locations from coast to coast, the Ottawa area outlets are stocking up to bring some fantastic birthday deals to those who know how to stretch their buying power to the max while having fun and showing their creative side at the same time. While other big fabric retailers and department stores have downsized or eliminated the options for their customers in terms of filling creative fashion needs or providing substantial savings on home decorating supplies, Fabricland remains dedicated to their growing family of smart shoppers. What Fabricland learned many years ago is nothing replaces customer service and advice from experienced consultants when it comes to welcoming first-time sewers and crafters as well as keeping fabric experts supplied with all their needs. That’s why every store is staffed with friendly knowledgeable folk who are happy to lend a hand, an ear and even a thimble to get the job done.

Fabricland continues to grow and evolve to not only meet their customers’ expectations but to exceed them. When home décor demands came from shoppers with little or no sewing experience, Fabricland premiered their ‘no-sew, ready-to-go’ home product line with ready-to-hang drapery panels, white bedding, an extensive line of drapery hardware, table linens such as placemats and runners, as well as a huge selection of decorative home accessories and much, much more... all of excellent quality and value. They called it the ‘Home Dec Centre’ and all of the Metro Ottawa stores have one. For those who like to craft their own decor, Fabricland has it all by the meter and bins of hardware. Quilters haven’t been left out in the cold either. Fabricland has the largest selection of materials, batting, backing, and threads for quilts to warm up the coldest winter night. For those looking to recycle some older clothing with spark, it’s all bling, buttons and beads at 50% off during the anniversary sale. When it comes to convenient locations, Fabricland has that sewn up as well. The Kanata store is at 471 Hazeldean Road (near Castlefrank), in Nepean it’s 1460 Merivale Road (between Clyde and Baseline), in Ottawa south at 1440 Walkley Road (near Albion North), in Ottawa East it’s in the Shopper’s City East Plaza at 2016 Ogilvie, and in Orleans you can find the savings at 2384 St. Joseph Blvd (just east of Orleans Blvd.). All locations have plenty of free parking and are open 7 days a week.

As an added incentive to visit the Shopper’s City East Fabricland, it has now been designated as a clearance centre with a large and varying selection of reducedto-clear items. For a big birthday like 45, Fabricland has pulled out all the stops and bolts for big savings with 50%-off specials filling the store and 40% off of almost anything else not on sale. If that’s not enough, Fabricland will be holding a customer draw for 2 sewing machines and over $2,000 in gift certificates per store! All this action happens from April 15th to May 5th. If you want to make sure you never miss a deal like this in the future you can be kept in the loop and enjoy all the benefits of membership by joining Fabricland’s Sewing Club. For the reduced price of $20 for the balance of Fabricland’s membership year,, Sewing Club members can save 25-50% of almost everything in the store any time! No one has to wait and search the weekly flyers to plan their shopping trips when home decor and fashion needs can crop up at any time if they’re Fabricland Sewing Club Members. And when there’s a sale on, Sewing Club members get convenient email notification and they can still take advantage by enjoying substantial discounts on regularly priced items. For those that don’t think they have a creative flair, a stroll down Fabricland’s idea-packed aisles is all it takes to spark the inner textile artist. Find all the details at www.fabricland.ca.

Haiti fundraiser to help rural communities Event offers music, dance and family fun

Adopt complete streets, enviro groups urge Tyler Costello tyler.costello@metroland.com

EMC news - Three years since an earthquake shook Haiti, communities are still trying to rebuild, find shelter and have clean drinking water readily available. One Ottawa-Haiti charity is hoping a fundraiser in the city’s downtown will make a big difference in helping those communities prosper. In January 2010, a 7.0 multitude earthquake hit near the town of Léogâne, Haiti, leaving nearly 316,000 people dead and 1.6 million people homeless. In an effort to help rebuild the country, the Marco Depestre Foundation of Ottawa is hosting a charity night of fun, music and dance at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church on April 27. “The fundraiser is to help finance projects in rural parts of Haiti,” said Yvette Depestre, the president of the Ottawa chapter. Depestre and her brother, Marco Depestre, a Haitian resident started the Marco Depestre Foundation in both Haiti and Ottawa in 2006, naming the foundation after their father, who they said always worked hard to help people in his country. The fundraiser is aimed to raise money to help fund current and new projects the foundation supports. Depestre said the foundation does not simply give handouts, it most importantly offers residents of these rural Haitian communities education so they can help themselves. “The projects are about the families learning how to do something for themselves, and then passing on that knowledge to other families in the neighbourhood,” she said. The communities the foundation focused on from the start were the rural ones, as both Depestre and her

The foundation worked at bringing the residents of these communities the tools to build and thrive on their own. When it comes to the recent earthquake and the devastation it left, Depestre said the needs of these rural communities grew, and in some areas still remain desperate. “Years ago, here in Ottawa there was an ice storm,” she said. “And after the storm, it took days for residents to recover, and it was hard. People lost a lot, but they were able to rebuild because they had insurance

and in Haiti, after the earthquake, there was nothing and people have still not been able to rebuild.” In some cases the barriers are as simple as a lack of access to roads and insurance, making picking up the pieces much more difficult, she added. “People were forgotten, and we need to help,” she said. “We are hoping to raise as much as possible so we can continue to help those in need.” Depestre’s brother Marco, a reverend in Port-au-Prince was driving home when the earthquake hit. “You wonder how 30 seconds can completely turn your world around; you wonder if it really happened, or if it was a dream,” Marco said. Marco was visiting his sister last

week and wanted to encourage as many Ottawa residents as possible to come out to the fundraiser and help make a difference. “Really it’s the next day, and the days after that, where you see the destruction, it shakes you to your heart,” Marco said. “By coming out to the fundraiser, you are supporting some useful work for many Haitian communities, all while enjoying some great music.” The fundraiser will feature a performance from Rev. Ernie Cox and the London Trio Plus. Tickets for the concert are $15 for adults. Children 15 years-old and younger are admitted free. Tickets are available in advance by contacting Depestre at 613-8304714 or at the door.

EMC News - Ottawa’s largest environmental organization is continuing to work to make Ottawa the green capital of Canada by campaigning to make streets safer and more accessible for all users. Ecology Ottawa, which calls itself a grassroots and volunteer-driven organization, is pushing for a “complete streets” policy to be implemented into the city’s Official Plan, currently under review. There is not a checklist to determine whether a street is considered “complete” because it depends on how the street is already being used by cars, pedestrians, cyclists and public transit. Some examples of making streets more complete would include widening sidewalks, adding bike lanes and making streets more accessible for public transit. Ecology Ottawa’s goal is to urge the city to adopt the complete streets method and apply it to the whole urban boundary area, meaning everywhere the city of Ottawa provides services. The city has already identified compete streets as one of the 14 principles being used to guide the Official Plan review process set to conclude at the end of the year. Streets should be designed to meet the needs of all users, said Trevor Haché, policy co-ordinator for Ecology Ottawa. Haché listed saving money, reducing environmental destruction and lessening pollution as benefits to the proposal. Other cities that have adopted similar policies, Haché said, and they have seen benefits to local businesses after people become more open to spending time on the streets. Haché, who believes the vast majorities of streets in Ottawa are “incomplete,” cited sections of Baseline Road that lack proper accommodation for cyclists and narrow sidewalks as areas that need attention. He pointed to sections of Laurier Avenue that feature segregated bike lanes and wide sidewalks as being friendly to all users of the road. Haché said despite the city’s own policy to prioritize pedestrians, the municipal government spends far more money on policies that make roads better for private automobiles. “It’s quite contradictory,” he said. There are more than 5,000 kilometres of roads in Ottawa and the vast majority serve motorists well, but not walkers and public transit users, said Haché. Although Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley agrees it makes sense to improve some of the roads, he disagrees with changing every road. “We’ve got to be careful not to adopt reports that are anti-car,” said Hubley, adding that only two per cent of the population can bike year round. “People driving downtown is a big part of Ottawa’s economy,” Hubley said.

City to post hit list of negligent property owners laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - If owners of derelict properties refuse to comply with the city’s orders to clean them up, they’ll be called out on the city’s website. Along with signs on the properties themselves, publishing a hit list of the city’s unmet orders to maintain crumbling vacant buildings on ottawa.ca is one of the strategies the city will use to crack down on landowners who leave structures in disrepair. That new strategy was revealed to the city’s community and protective services committee during an April 18 meeting along with a rundown of current measures and future ideas to clean up rundown empty buildings. The report was a follow-up to a commitment Mayor Jim Watson and some of his council colleagues made at a press conference six weeks ago. After years of leniency, the crackdown means the city is enforcing its property standards bylaw more strictly. Two city bylaw officers have already been tackling a list of

derelict properties – both vacant and in use – and issuing orders for maintenance. “Our goal now, as of this day, to look forward and say … .your building might be vacant, but from the street you won’t notice it,” said RideauVanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury, who has the highest concentration of derelict vacant buildings in his ward. That extends to occupied buildings such as rooming houses. The city has partnered with ACORN, a low-income and tenant advocacy organization, to proactively deal with negligent landlords. So far, the partnership has resulted in the discovery of 518 deficiencies in four buildings. The city issues a total of 73 orders for issues in those four buildings to be cleaned up. New strategies to crack down on derelict properties will be drafted through consultations starting in June and presented to the committee in September. Some of the ideas staff will look at include: • Limiting tax reductions property owners receive if their buildings are vacant. • Setting higher maintenance standards to improve

King loves to be socialized and would benefit from an owner who is eager to bring him around different people and to different places in order to become more confident! King has good house training skills but will need to be taken out frequently to know what’s expected of him! This big lovable

guy previously lived with a cat, and was very respectful of his feline friend! His new family will need to make sure he gets adequate physical exercise and mental stimulation. A tired dog, is a good dog after all! King is a “Foster-Me-First” adoption because he’s on medication for an ear infection and will need to see the vet again. Ozzy is a beautiful, one-year-old, neutered male, white domestic shorthair, blue-eyed

cat who loves to show you his moves when playing with string toys or chasing things. He was surrendered to the shelter by his owner on January 8, and is now available for adoption. He has an athletic, runners build, and fast reflexes and will need an owner who can handle a rough player! Ozzy would prefer to live in an adult-only home, and be the only feline as he is known to give love nips. We are unsure, but think that Ozzy may also be deaf, so he should not be let outside without a leash or safe enclosure, despite his strong desire to see what’s on the other side of any door. Looking for a cat with an adventurous, fearless spirit? This trained to walk on-leash cat would love to meet you!

Should you adopt a pet if you have allergies? Don’t assume that because you’re sniffling and sneezing, a pet is the cause. Many household particles, such as dust and mould, can cause allergic reactions. Make sure to see an allergist for testing. Animal allergies are caused by glands in the animal’s skin secreting tiny allergy-triggering proteins, called allergens. Allergens are present in flakes of dry skin (dander) and the animal’s saliva and urine. The allergens may circulate in the air after saliva dries on the animal’s fur. For people who are allergic to animals, most animals, and all cats and dogs, are allergenic (or, allergy-causing). Cats and rabbits tend to be more allergenic than dogs for allergic people, although some people are more sensitive to dogs than cats. Contrary to popular belief, there are no “non-allergenic” breeds of dogs or cats; even hairless breeds may be highly allergenic. There are some breeds of cats and dogs that are considered hypoallergenic, which means they are generally less allergy-causing than other breeds. However, even among breeds, one dog or cat may be more irritating to an individual allergy sufferer than another animal of that same breed.

Please note: The Ottawa Humane Society has many other companion animals available for adoption. Featured animals are adopted quickly!

A combination of approaches — medical control of symptoms, good housecleaning methods and immunotherapy — is most likely to succeed in allowing an allergic person to live with pets. If you do not currently have a pet and are considering one, and know you, or a family member, are pet-allergic, be sure to consider carefully whether you can live with the allergy before you bring a new pet home. Pet allergies can range from very mild to very serious. Too many allergic people obtain pets without thinking through the challenges of living with them. Too often, owners end up relinquishing pets — a decision that is difficult and can be traumatic for the pet. If you have allergies and have decided to live with an animal, it is important to find an allergist who understands your commitment to living with your pet. Also, find out just how severe your allergy is. You can begin to determine how allergic you are to animals by spending time with friends who have pets. Trying to cope with allergies to your pet? You’re not alone. Many people suffering from animal allergies choose to share their lives with a pet.

refuse to comply with the city’s orders to repair their buildings: “Why don’t you take pride in your community and your property?” A hint of the answer came from a couple delegates who spoke to the committee on behalf of property owner in-

spending money to maintain their buildings so they have enough resources left to invest in rebuilding or redeveloping it, Dickie said. “It’s a tradeoff. (A) tradeoff between waste of money and impact on the neighbour,” he said. “It has impacts on neighbours, and we admit that.” Shirley Dolan, president of the Carleton Landowners Association, wondered why the city thought owners would be more willing to pour money into their properties now, when the economy is in a downturn, compared to previous decades when owners likely had more financial resources, but still didn’t maintain their buildings to the city’s standard. Dolan said “beauty is in the eye of the beholders. “I really don’t think that bullying property owners into improvements because you don’t like the look of the property is the way to go,” she said. The city should be more lenient in letting owners tear down buildings they don’t want to maintain, Dickie said. “What’s wrong with a vacant lot? I grew up across from a vacant lot,” he said.

Chapman Mills School welcomes new students Jennifer McIntosh

We love our new home and I know everyone is going to be happy here. ROGER LEE

“It was a great home for us, they really painted it up and finished it nicely,” Lee said. “But it was a 40minute bus drive away.” There are currently 380 children attending the school, now on Leamington Way off of Chapman Mills Drive. The school’s theoretical capacity is 650 students. The school currently offers classes for junior kindergarten to Grade 4.

Next year, Grade five will be added. The school also offers early French immersion. “We are a dual-track school,” Lee said. While the school isn’t due to get full-day kindergarten until September 2015, Lee said they have an extended day program that is open for the day at 7 a.m. to make a smooth transition from childcare to the classroom. The student body is made up of kids from neighbouring Farley Mowat and Barrhaven public schools whose exploding populations made the construction of a new school necessary. The history might make it into the Chapman Mills school colours. Lee, who came to Chapman Mills from Rideau Valley Middle School, said the team name will be the Comets, and the school colours will likely be green from Farley Mowat and blue from Barrhaven, with silver to represent a comet. “That’s still to be decided,” he said, adding the students would have a vote. The staff and students got along

EMC news - The newest public elementary school in Barrhaven might look a little unfinished, but the school spirit is already palpable. The front of the school building is mostly windows interlaced with a grey siding. When approaching the building you can see childrens’ drawings posted on the windows, which run nearly the entire height of from the floor to the ceiling. The $10-million building is stateof-the-art and features a large gym with a staging area, a two-storey library and an elevator. All the water fountains have the ability to fill portable bottles, encouraging students to drink tap water. The library, not yet open for business, has meeting space, modern, lighting and is filled with sunshine on a spring afternoon. Upon entering the foyer there are bilingual, hand-drawn signs welcoming visitors to the school. “They just popped up one day,” principal Roger Lee said. “It shows the spontaneity and leadership of the

teachers.” The students were moved into the new school after the March break. They started the school year at the former site of Parkwood Hills Public School on Tiverton Drive.

Aries, don’t be pushy with authority figures because such an attitude is not in your best interest. You are better off putting on the charm and getting them to see your softer side. Taurus, avoid getting involved in a family spat unless someone seeks your advice. Let your relatives work things out on their own and only offer your thoughts when prompted. Gemini, you might run into a snag with your spouse or partner over shared finances. Rather than settle issues this week, you’re better off waiting a few days.

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

Cancer, even if the people around you are feeling tense and touchy, you have an innate way of making them feel at ease. Humor and compassion are two great traits.

Leo, you might need to make travel plans for a work trip in the coming month. Embrace the opportunity to benefit your career, but don’t forget to have a little fun when you’re away. Virgo, now is not the time to talk about shared expenses or the division of labor in a relationship. You’ll only be starting an argument, and you do not need that right now, Virgo.

Staying neutral is the best way to go this week, Libra. Avoid any knee-jerk reactions and practice your poker face. There are some opportunities for fun on Thursday. Scorpio, demonstrate grace under pressure at work this week, even if you feel tempted to lash out at others. Take the high road and you will be rewarded. Sagittarius, the perfect opportunity for a night out with friends presents itself this week. This could be the ideal way to unwind, so enjoy your night out with friends. Capricorn, although it seems like everyone is tense, you feel free as a bird. That could be because you have worked hard to free up time to get away. Aquarius, conversations with others may not flow smoothly, and you may have to come up with a way to reword what you’re trying to get across. Stick with it. Pisces, though you’re praised for your marvelous imagination and sense of whimsy, you also know when to get down to business.

Three days later however, in the middle of the night, the hospital called Stephanie and Kevin. Baby Lucas had kidney failure and needed to be transported to CHEO right away. Lucas’ parents were in shock.

When Little Lucas arrived at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at CHEO, Dr. Jana Feberova, a neonatologist, and her team were ready for him. After numerous tests and treatments, the team observed an unusual pouch of air in the baby’s tummy. Something wasn’t right.

It was comforting and helpful to be able to make sense of such an unexpected and frightening situation.” Once in the operating room, the CHEO team was able to see that baby Lucas had a ruptured bladder. This finally explained his ailments: the air in the tummy, the malfunctioning kidneys, and the difficulty urinating.

A ruptured bladder is very rare, especially at birth, but it can be life-threatening. In baby Lucas’ case it is unknown how he sustained “When a man in blue scrubs walked into our the injury.

Good things come in small packages

The Ottawa Hospital saved my leg By Tracey Tong

For her entire life, Amanda Acker had enjoyed idyllic vacations at Booth Lake with her family in Algonquin Park. But one fateful camping trip in spring of 2010 quickly turned into a nightmare when a stove-sized boulder she stepped on gave way, throwing her into the water. The boulder fell on top of her, crushing her leg. “I looked down and all I saw were bones and blood,” said Acker, a dental hygienist and single mother of two boys. It took about five hours – including shooting a set of rapids in a canoe – to get to a phone, and another four hours to get to an ambulance before she was eventually airlifted to The Ottawa Hospital.

Her leg was completely crushed – “the most severe classification of break,” she said. Acker underwent eight surgeries at The Ottawa Hospital in total, including six in the initial two and half weeks after the accident. Even with three plates and two bone grafts, her leg was non-weight-bearing for almost five months. “If I had stepped on it, my leg would have fallen apart,” she said. Now 31, Acker had her final surgery in September 2011, at which time she was given a clean bill of health. “I now have zero limitations on my leg,” she said. She shares her story to say thank you to The Ottawa Hospital for saving her leg, and is thrilled she will be able to run again.

The Ottawa Hospital saved Amanda Acker’s leg, and her life, following an accident in 2010. Here, she poses with her sons, Gabriel and Luca.
