Horse industry “thrilled” by raceway casino announcement Emma Jackson

Ottawa-born actress Sandra Oh will receive the key to the city from Mayor Jim Watson on July 8. – Page 28

EMC news - An entire industry breathed a sigh of relief on Monday, June 3 when Mayor Jim Watson said the Rideau Carleton Raceway should be the only option for a future casino in Ottawa. “Obviously anyone affiliated with horse racing and the Rideau Carleton Raceway is thrilled with the news,” said John MacMillan, founder of the National Capital Region Horse Racing Association, and

It takes one to know one.

leader of the Casino Choice Ottawa campaign. “There’s a lot of relieved people at Rideau Carleton because they were worried about losing their jobs.” In a surprising about-face on the issue, Watson informed councillors by email on Monday night he would propose “that the city identify the Rideau Carleton Raceway as the only acceptable location for an expanded gaming facility in Ottawa.” He tabled his motion at the city’s finance and economic

development committee on June 4, to be considered in July. Given that the Ontario Gaming and Lottery Corporation will only allow one gaming site in each designated gaming zone - killing the hope of a satellite slots program to complement a downtown casino - Watson said it was “becoming increasingly clear that there would be no future role for the RCR given the OLG’s most recent position,” he wrote. “Therefore, I do not believe we should jeopardize

the Rideau Carleton Raceway operation by not being crystal clear to the OLG prior to the start of its RFP process.” For the past year, Watson has vocally supported an urban casino location. Community leaders like Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson and Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa MacLeod have been fighting against him to save the raceway’s monopoly on gaming in the city. The raceway has been suffering since the end of March, when the province ended

its 13-year revenue-sharing agreement through the Slots at Racetracks program. With a new casino planned for downtown - and thus the permanent removal of the racetrack’s slot machines - the raceway was all but doomed. Not surprisingly, Thompson said he was very happy to hear the mayor had changed his mind. Thompson said he “was going crazy” trying to make OLG and Watson see the racetrack’s potential.

A place to remember Remembrance Park could be built in time for Vimy’s 100th Emma Jackson

EMC news - The Manotick legion wants to expand its presence in Dickinson Square. Legion past president Roy Blair and resident Ted Ross are leading the campaign to design a remembrance park north of the cenotaph, in the green space that was once the Holloway property. “It’s important to show to the veterans they’re not forgotten, and what they did is not forgotten,” Ross said.

While the park is in its very early stages – no design, timeline or money has been secured – Ross and Blair said they want to complete the project by 2017, in time for Canada’s 150th birthday and the 100th anniversary of the battle of Vimy Ridge. The space is compact, but the park could include a number of features: a sidewalk leading to the cenotaph further south on Dickinson Street, heritage gardens with cuttings from local properties, a fountain, benches and a feature allowing children to thank veterans for their service. That could be something like a wall of handprints, a special plaque or a statue. “It’s symbolic of having a torch passed forward as well as a thank-you passed backwards,” Blair said. Expanding the cenotaph’s interlocking brick northward

is a more urgent priority, which could potentially get done later this summer when the city realigns Dickinson Street with Dickinson Circle north of Bridge Street, Ross said. Expanding the brick is important, he added, because when the square is packed for Remembrance Day some of the participants are left standing on uneven, sloping ground for hours. A sidewalk has already been secured for the site as part of the Dickinson realignment, but park designs and funding won’t be finalized in time to piggy-back on the project this summer, Ross said. He said if the sidewalk must go in this summer they will plan the park around it, but they’d like to delay the installation if they can, so they have more creative say over where it goes.


Manotick Legion past president Roy Blair and resident Ted Ross want to see a new Remembrance Park north of the cenotaph in Dickinson Square. Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt said he supports the park idea in principle, but can’t comment or move forward without a concept. He said the sidewalk can’t be delayed without compromising the city’s willingness to pay for it. “If it’s done as part of the (Dickinson Street) project, that where the money is,” he said. “If it’s delayed then I’m

not sure about the funding.” City funding may be difficult to secure anyway because there are so many parks already on the list, Moffatt said. Making use of city grants, particularly the rural community building grant, would be a better route. Financial issues aside, Moffatt said what he’s heard of the park concept is a good fit for the property. “When I was first approached I said it was a good idea and made sense,” Moffatt said. “The city has every intention, through the Manotick Mill Quarter Community Development Committee, to look at that as a pathway link between Bridge Street and Dickinson Square.” ABUTMENT SUPPORT

At the same time, the legion wants the city to fix the abutment behind the cenotaph, on the foundation of the old bridge. Ross said the legion and community at large has been worried about the state of the crumbling infrastructure for some time, but it could be a complicated project if Parks Canada or Rideau Valley Conservation Authority must be involved. The project would add at least another $50,000 to the budget according to Ross, but he said it’s worth the money. “It dramatically increases the cost of the Remembrance Park to add this to it, but in my mind the city needs to deal with it sooner rather than later,” he said. “This seems like the time to do it all.” Moffatt said he didn’t know

whether the abutment problem is on the city’s radar, or if it has ever been inspected for structural problems. City staff also couldn’t confirm the information by press time. COMMUNITY PARK

Ross and Blair envision a community effort on this project. While the legion is leading the charge, Ross said they hope to partner with other community and service groups like the Manotick Culture, Parks and Recreation Association, the Manotick BIA and the Kiwanis and Lions to fundraise and recruit labour. He also wants to get local schoolchildren involved, and to tap into financial support from local businesses. “There’s plenty of money, we just need to pull it together,” he said, noting that Manotick residents can always be counted on for their generosity. “Whether its $100 or $100,000, it doesn’t seem to matter.” The Remembrance Park, while meant to be a place to honour service men and women, will still be a community park, Ross added. Seniors from the new residence across Bridge Street would be able to access it easily, and visitors to the square can take a moment to reflect. Even future customers of a potential commercial development on the west side of Dickinson Street can enjoy the park as well. “It will mean that nothing else will develop there that will detract from our main purpose, which is the Remembrance Day ceremony,” Blair added.

That’s a far cry from the clinic’s current three-day schedule with limited evening hours. “There are a lot of new people coming in, families with children, and their needs are high,” Abdulla said. Families most often need acute care for minor injuries that happen outside normal business hours, he added. “We need someone there at those hours so they can get their timely care when they need it.” Abdulla said the ultimate goal is to provide a regular walk-in clinic in the heart of Manotick, and, someday, have access to urgent care services seven days a week.

New shopping centre coming to Greely Laura Mueller

EMC news - A developer has committed to changing truck loading docks and garbage areas at a proposed Greely plaza that backs right onto homes. The new plaza was approved to be located south of Mitch Owens and west of Bank Street in an area the community design plan identifies for a shopping centre and residential area. Instead of providing homes on the land, the developer, Otis Group, wants to enlarge the commercial area to provide a bigger, car-oriented shopping centre. One Marco Street resident whose home would back onto the new plaza wasn’t happy that his new neighbour could bring noise and the stench of garbage. “I will have the receiving dock

right in my backyard (with trucks) backing up all night,” said Richard Carriere. “Odour attracts animals … I can only imagine putting garbage in my backyard will attract coyotes.” Those concerns had already prompted Otis Group to look at options to reduce the impact of noise and smells on the neighbours. Truck loading docks will be moved to the sides of buildings instead of back, where they would be directly facing into Marco Street yards, said Miguel Tremblay, a planner from FoTenn who works for Otis. The city added a condition to the zoning to prevent loading docks and garbage facilities from being located between the main commercial building and the residential zone. The city’s rural development manager, Derek Moodie, said the city will likely require a noise study to asses the impact of trucks and roof-

top mechanical systems on neighbouring homes. Garbage and waste receptacles will also be moved to the sides of buildings in the plaza and they will be partially enclosed and buffered with barriers. Food stores generally have indoor garbage storage, Tremblay said, and it’s often refrigerated to reduce the smell. City planning staff liked the application because it fits in with the intent of the community design plan and it ensures that commercial development is concentrated in rural villages, instead of scattered throughout the countryside. The balance of leftover land on the site, which used to be a mineral-extracting operation, provides enough space for more homes, city staff said. Mark Eplett of Otis Group wouldn’t reveal what types of busi-

nesses are coming to the plaza, but he said his company pursued the idea of building the plaza because he was approached by companies looking to locate in Greely. Once all the approvals are worked out, construction should begin this fall, Eplett said. He hopes the shopping centre will be open by late 2014 or early 2015. The city’s agriculture and rural affairs committee approved some changes to the types of businesses that will be allowed in the shopping centre. Medical facility, retail food store, library, office, instructional facility, bank, personal service business and place of assembly were added to the list of possible businesses, which also includes restaurant, amusement centre, animal care centre, artist studio, retail store, warehouse

and gas bar. No longer allowed are car-rental establishment, auto dealership, campground, bar, hotel, car wash, kennel or heavy equipment businesses. Changes to roads and intersections in the area could be proposed as the detailed design and site plan is worked out. Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson said he thinks a left-turning lane will be warranted at the Bank Street and Mitch Owens Drive intersection. A detailed hydrogeological assessment will be required by the ministry of the environment. Carriere was interested to hear how a large septic system needed for the shopping centre could affect his and other neighbours’ wells.

Along with housing animals from cats and dogs to llamas, emu and even a bison - about 90 per cent of which are up for adoption the ranch also opens its doors to its human supporters. “One of the big goals is we want to educate people how to treat and take care of their animals,” Sakalauskas said.

Calling all townsfolk: volunteers needed EMC news - The Queen of Osgoode is calling all talented (or at least enthusiastic) thespian-type medieval buffs to follow her around adoringly during the Kingdom of Osgoode Medieval Festival, July 13 to 14. Festival organizers are seeking volunteers to act as townspeople, royal entourage, guards, and other colourful characters. “It’s like stepping into a different world for two days,” says storyline committee co-ordinator, Andrea Jermacans. “You put on a costume, start calling everyone ‘m’lady’ and boo at the nasty regent when he walks by. It’s a lot of fun, and not a huge commitment. It’s always a hoot playing pretend for

a few hours.” Jermacans says she’s seeking volunteers for four hour shifts on Saturday and Sunday. “Experience isn’t necessary,” says Jermacans. “We just need some outgoing, reliable volunteers who don’t mind dressing as medieval peasants for a few hours and helping to build enthusiasm amongst the crowds.” The festival is also seeking general volunteers to help out with the games, at the door, and other positions. For more information, please contact Andrea Jermacans at 613-826-1459 or email Visit



Established community near Kingston, Ontario, offers ideal retirement lifestyle in a tranquil setting, minutes from the city and on a championship golf course BATH, Ontario – You’ve waited long enough for retirement. Why wait to enjoy it? At Kaitlin Corporation Loyalist Country Club Community near Kingston, Ontario, you can start from the moment you move in. “We are an established community,” says Kaitlin sales representative and Loyalist community member Ted Custance, noting that the development is well past the halfway point. “Other lifestyle projects promise amenities but are still in the planning stages. At Loyalist, our golf course and country club activities are already in full swing.” Equal distance between Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal, with Syracuse, N.Y. an hour-and-a-half to the south, Loyalist Country Club Community is Kaitlin’s signature golf course development in the picturesque town of Bath, 15 minutes from Kingston. Every home is either a detached bungalow, bungalow with loft or bungalow townhome, ideally suited to empty nesters or zoomers approaching retirement and interested in main floor living. Phase Seven, available now, is a grouping of 44 spectacular lots backing onto the 12th and 17th holes of the Loyalist Country Club, an 18-hole championship course that will be hosting a PGA Canada Tour event in 2014. Each home purchase includes membership to the club, providing access to clubhouse fitness facilities, billiard room, library, member’s lounge, outdoor swimming pool and hot tub, for a minimal annual fee. Homeowners also receive a discount on golf. “These homes not only back onto spectacular links, they also offer easy access to boating, fishing and water sports on Lake Ontario,” said Custance, noting that the area is like a mini Ottawa. “We have

culture, sports, dining, recreation; whatever interests you, you’ll find it here.” The latest phase features six detached bungalow and bungalow loft floor plans ranging in size from 1,415 to 2,922 square feet. Boasting large rear-facing windows, front and rear covered porch areas, and views of scenic fairways, they are priced from $364,990. Exterior features include maintenance-free quality siding with brick and stone elevations; painted architectural trimmings; maintenance-free aluminum soffits, fascia, eaves troughs and downspouts; and, fully graded lots with sod. Interior highlights include crafted cabinets in kitchens and bathrooms; quality ceramic tile; luxury 35 ounce broadloom; and, oak pickets and handrails with oak stringers on stairs to second floor.

Let’s avoid casino tunnel vision


ollowing recent upheaval in the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation boardroom and a change of tact on casinos initiated by the premier’s office, Mayor Jim Watson has also made an about face on the issue. After making the case for the city to support a downtown casino, the mayor now wants to see any new gaming facilities placed at the Rideau Carleton Raceway. While this is great news for anyone connected with the horse racing industry, it should be at least a little disconcerting for many residents as once again city hall is narrowing the discussion about a particular issue. Remember the epic court battles fought by the city over the redevelopment of Lansdowne Park? Many of the arguments against the city partnering with the Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group pointed to a lack of open competition. Isn’t that what’s happening here? Like with Lansdowne, there is at least one other group interested in making a serious bid to build a casino in another area of the city: Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk, wants the opportunity to build one beside Scotiabank Place. A francophone business group has also called for an open competition for any new gaming facility. An open competition only makes sense, not only

for the bidder, but the city as well. Competition would see multiple business plans presented to the city, which staff could in turn evaluate to come up with a recommendation that makes the most sense for Ottawa. More than likely, what makes sense for Ottawa would be a proposal that maximizes gambling revenue for the city, as this is really the only reason to build a new casino – if we’re not in it to make money, we probably shouldn’t be building one at all. This is not to say the raceway can’t present a compelling business case. It has lots of land to build on and few neighbours to annoy. Area gamblers are also familiar with the existing slots, so there is an existing customer base. The biggest drawbacks to the site are a lack of growth potential due to its distance from downtown and the lack of transportation infrastructure. Downtown, on the other hand, doesn’t suffer either of those problems. Downtown’s biggest problem is the lack of a ready-made site. Melnyk’s potential plan would fall somewhere between the two: ample space, good transit links and location near Highway 417, but also not near the city’s major tourist hub. These are the factors that need to be considered by the city, and by narrowing the potential sites to just one, Watson is effectively neutering this discussion.


Considering the what-ifs of Ottawa baseball


he future of minor league baseball in Ottawa is connected to series of what-ifs. What if the stadium had been built on LeBreton Flats where, heaven knows, there’s still lots of room for it? More recently, what if someone had thought about baseball when Lansdowne Park was being redesigned? And most importantly, what if the city hadn’t allowed the stadium parking lot on Coventry Road to become hotels? Sure, there are other questions. One of them is whether baseball, as a spectator sport, has simply had its day. When the Ottawa Lynx thrived in the mid-‘90s, baseball was not only popular but trendy. The Lynx Stadium was the place to be seen and frequently sold out. Not many years later, only die-hard ball fans could be found there. How many of those are left and are they being replaced? Obviously, there are people who think so, and bless them. There is hardly a day goes by that someone isn’t talking about moving one Double-A franchise or another into the stadium, so someone must have confidence that the game can return to its former level of glory in this city. If not glory, at least enough people in the

stadium to fill a good-sized parking lot. Which brings us back to the most important what-if. There have been various attempts to bring baseball back since the Lynx left town to become the Lehigh Valley IronPigs in 2007. All ran into the same problem that plagued the Lynx in their last days: not enough parking. The kind of beautiful Sunday afternoon that would bring capacity crowds to the stadium would find many potential members of those capacity crowds vainly searching for a place to put their cars. Too many gave up. It’s not a problem easily solved. It would be unfair to allow nearby residential areas to be overrun with cars. Given the amount of space left on the original parking lot side, underground parking or the construction of Published weekly by:

a parking garage would seem to be the only ways to solve the problem. Both are expensive, and risky, considering that no one really knows if baseball will attract the desired number of fans. Ultimately, the what-if game is pointless, since previous mistakes can’t be unmade. For whatever reasons, the stadium is in a bad location and doesn’t have enough parking. The city can’t remove the hotels. Writing the stadium off and moving baseball to another location would be hard to take after the amount of money that has been spent. But ... what if the stadium were at LeBreton Flats, with lots of space for parking, lots of public transit, close to downtown restaurants and bars? Someone actually did think of that back in the day, but the National Capital Commission said no. Surprise, surprise. Or, what if a new stadium was built in conjunction with a new casino? That would certainly put lots of tourists in the vicinity and some of them might be willing to desert their slot machines for a couple of hours to watch a ball game. But that’s a no-go too: the association, physical and otherwise, of baseball and gambling has been rightly frowned upon for years.

What if baseball had been included in the Lansdowne redevelopment plan? That would put the ballpark within walking distance of a substantial number of fans. And those fans would have places to walk to after the game. The problem there is that Lansdowne is tied to football and football stadiums do not lend themselves to baseball, either for the fans or the players. Anyone who has ever seen a baseball game at Exhibition Stadium in Toronto can vouch for that. Oddly, optimism persists in some quarters. It would be nice to think that it is justified. Baseball will never dominate the life of this city, but its lack has certainly been felt.

“I’ve said this continually: We have 1.7 millions visitors going every year; they give $70 million to the province already; they’re going to build hotels, they have ample parking,” Thompson said. “It’s so logical that it would be there, it just cries out.” He said the change of heart won’t please everyone – several businessmen including Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk have already spoken out against the plan – but Thompson believes this is the right way forward. “The people around there, they’re (already) living with the racetrack there, so why not move ahead,” he said. Raceway manager Jean Larose said the mayor’s announcement is welcome but wouldn’t comment further. The raceway’s spokesperson Alex Lawryk wouldn’t comment either on the impact this could have on the raceway, since it is already part of the process to be prequalified for the development, he said.

Racetracks across the province were shocked in March 2012 when the McGuinty government and OLG scrapped the long-standing Slots at Racetracks program, a revenue-sharing agreement with rural racetracks.

“The people around there, they’re (already) living with the racetrack there, so why not move ahead.” COUN. DOUG THOMPSON

Since 2000, the Rideau Carleton Raceway has hosted 1,250 slot machines that subsidized any losses from running the racetrack programs. Without a revenue sharing program, the racetrack is unsustainable. “In the current formula horse racing is only limping

along and losing money,” said MacMillan, a horse racer of 25 years. He said the raceway’s revenues have dropped drastically since the provincial agreement ended on March 31. But there may be some hope on the horizon. Under new Premier Kathleen Wynne, the OLG has moved in a new direction on casinos and she has taken up the torch for the horseracing industry – at least in principle. Wynne has directed the OLG to integrate horseracing into its modernization plan, and a panel has been set up to draft a financial model for the industry by the end of June. It would be finalized in October and implemented next April. “We’re looking for Wynne to reintroduce a new revenuesharing formula that makes sense for horse racing, and the OLG and the province,” MacMillan said, although he said the horseracing industry is only cautiously optimistic. “Unless Premier Wynne can create a formula which elevates the purses to a reasonable level, horse racing won’t survive.”


Information sessions will be held on Tuesday evenings in June and August

The course will be held on four Saturdays: September 7, 14, 28 and October 5, 2013 from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

The arrival of an ice box was like Christmas Until that fateful day in the middle of summer, Mother had no choice but to keep the perishables on a swinging shelf in the dug-out under the house. It was a dank and frightening place and could only be entered from the outside. There was no trapdoor in the kitchen like Aunt Bertha had on the next farm, only two big doors tilted against the house that had to be lifted to gain entry. It was a place I hated with a passion and Mother too never quite got used to putting butter and milk on the swinging shelf. Blocks of ice were put in big tubs down in the dugout in the hope that what Mother put down there would be kept chilled enough that we all wouldn’t die from food poisoning. Of course when the ice melted,

what it would look like or what size it was, Mother decided it would go kitty-corner next to the little room off the kitchen that served as Mother and Father’s bedroom. So that place was scrubbed by Audrey, wiped dry, and newspapers laid out covering the entire corner. For reasons unknown to me at the time, Mother made all of us change from play clothes into our next-toSunday best -- was it because we were getting an ice box or was it because Grandfather would be there for a visit? At any rate, we were spit-clean when Grandfather drove back into the yard and said the new ice box would be here as soon as Father could get back from Renfrew. Mother, in a clean Dan River dress and a fresh white apron, sat on the back stoop waiting for its arrival, with Audrey and I perched on the pump stoop. Grandfather brought out a kitchen chair to the yard. He wouldn’t sit on anything that wasn’t spotlessly clean in case he got a mark on his white flannel pants. It was like we were waiting for the Queen to arrive. Then we saw the wagon round the corner at the far end of the lane and as it got closer we could see Everett standing with his arms wrapped around what looked like a casket standing on its end. Father pulled the wagon up close to the kitchen door. “My oh my,” Mother said, not even waiting until it was loaded off onto the ground, she leaned into the wagon and rubbed her hands all over the new ice box like it was made of gold. It took the three brothers and Father to lift it off the wagon, with Grandfather telling them to be care-

But it was Grandfather who changed all that one day when he came out from Ottawa and ordered Father to hitch up the wagon and head into Renfrew.

his rumble seat car, telling Father where to meet him. Everett went with Father to help. The purpose of his trip into town was to buy Mother a brand new Barnett ice box. “Uncivilized! That’s what it is!” he said time and again on his regular visits to the farm and when one of us kids was sent down into the dug-out to bring up milk or butter or anything else that Mother hoped would keep fresh long enough so that we could eat it. We always had had an ice house and it was always full of blocks of ice, but never until that wonderful day, did we have an ice box to put the blocks in. Mother spent the entire morning trying to come up with a decent place to put the ice box in the kitchen. It had to be well away from the Findlay Oval, of course, and it couldn’t sit in the window looking out into the grape arbour -- that’s where the old pine table sat and where we had our meals. Finally, without even knowing

ful and not scratch it. It was shiny wood, the colour of caramel candy, with silver handles, and I thought was grand enough that it could easily have sat in the parlour. Without even being told, Everett tore to the ice house, and using the big black iron tongs, hauled a block of ice into the house. It was beastly hot in the kitchen with the Findlay Oval pumping out heat and I secretly wondered if the ice box would cool off the whole house. Emerson swung open the little door on the side, and Everett plopped in the block of ice. Audrey and I were sent down to the dugout for all the perishables and Mother arranged it all in the ice box like she was laying out blocks for a quilt. Grandfather had thought of everything. While in Renfrew he bought an exact duplicate of our white granite dish pan and he slid it under the ice box to catch the drip. We sat around the ice box on kitchen chairs, as if waiting for it to tell us something. It sure looked mighty nice in the corner and I could tell Mother was as proud as if someone had bought her a new car. What a change the new ice box brought to our old log house. Now we had it as well as a telephone, thanks to Uncle Lou. Emerson wondered what we had to do to get running water, and I longed for the day we could just push up a switch and a light would go on just like at my little friend Joyce’s house. Sadly, water from a tap and light from a bulb were not to be. Both would have to wait until the day we left the farm many years later. Travel Reg.#2967742 & 5000006

Ride the Rideau adds new 50km route Fundraiser hopes to beat 1.8M Emma Jackson


From baristas to CEOs, it takes all kinds to raise awareness – and Exceptional Service funds – for world-class cancer reCompetitive Rates search. On Saturday, June 1, cyclists from the fourth annual Ride the Rideau pedaled up a storm on stationary bikes on busy Bank Street to drum up awareness for the September 7 event. Ride the Rideau is The Ottawa Hospital R0022125076 Foundation’s signature fundraiser. The event has raised $4.4 million 613-692-5100 • for cancer research at The Ottawa KBC RONA JN 12 13 Hospital in the past three years.



EMC news - The fourth annual Ride the Rideau fundraiser hopes to attract new cyclists with a shorter route for this year’s event. Organizers at the Ottawa Hospital Foundation have added a 50-kilometre bike ride along the Rideau River to complement the original 100-km ride to fund cancer research on Sept. 7. Event co-ordinator Michelle van Vliet said riders in the new 50-km category will do half the original route between Ottawa and Merrickville and then will be shuttled the rest of the way to the evening celebration in the small riverside town. She said the standard $1,500 fundraising minimum will still apply for 50-km rid-

ers, because the foundation wants to make as big an impact as possible. But Van Vliet said distance is often more of a challenge than fundraising. “We always thought the $1,500 would be a big barrier, but we’re meeting more and more people who want to do the ride but are terrified of the distance,” she said. “Every year we’re just trying to create a better rider experience.” She said team members don’t all have to complete the same route; some can do the full 100km, and others can choose to ride 50km. “Camaraderie is so important,” she said, noting that many participants are on corporate teams. “They’re using Ride the Rideau to boost staff morale and staff fitness. It just gives people a chance to train together and fundraise together and build that team.” In just three years, Ride the Rideau has become the most successful single-day cancer fundraiser in Eastern Ontario.

It has raised more than $4.4 million since it began, and riders have helped fund new therapies and the opening of the Centre for Innovative Cancer Research. Last year the event raised $1.74 million for cancer research with 718 cyclists taking the scenic tour along the world heritage site. Van Vliet hopes to have 1,000 cyclists this year, as well as 350 volunteers. She said they are on target and “tracking well ahead of last year” for registrations and fundraising. She said the foundation would like to surpass their biggest fundraising amount to date, $1.82 million. Leading up the event, organizers will offer group training rides, skill sessions and bike maintenance workshops. “Now’s the time (to register),” she said. “It allows for more time to train and also for fundraising.” To register or for more information visit ridetherideau. ca.

New bylaw in effect for donation bins Jessica Cunha

EMC news - A new bylaw came into effect to regulate clothing donation bins on June 3. Whether on public or private property, the bins must state if they are affiliated with a charity, which one it is collecting for along with the registration number, and must have a working phone number, said Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley, who first raised the issue in 2011. Bins must also state if they are collecting for a for-profit business. “If you see a box that’s overflowing or you want to call to see what exactly they’re doing with the stuff you give them, there has to be a working number,” he said. “Most importantly, they now have

to have the permission of the landowner.” Before the bylaw was put into effect, donation bins were just “showing up,” he said. The Salvation Army and Neighbourhood Services are both charities approved by the city, said Hubley. “Because they’re local charities and they’re doing things to help our community.” Hubley added that people can now make an informed decision when donating their clothes. “Now you’ll know where your stuff is going and it’s up to you what you want to do,” he said. Bylaw officers will be checking donation bins but if people notice something that isn’t in compliance with the new bylaws, they are encouraged to call 311 and report any discrepancies, said Hubley. “I would encourage people

to take a look at the sign on those boxes and make sure that they comply with the bylaws.” Hubley first raised the issue about clothing bins in 2011. At that time, the Jubilee Donations bins – especially one at Jack Charron Arena – were of particular concern, Hubley said, because they are not emptied regularly and it’s not clear if Jubilee is a registered charity. Hubley called the phone number listed on the box and determined that Jubilee is a storage company. With files from Laura Mueller FILE

A new bylaw requires clothing donation bins to display information about where contributions are going as well as a working phone number.

City to bridge extra construction costs Jennifer McIntosh

EMC news – Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches said the latest funding approved for the Strandherd-Armstrong bridge isn’t just about the dollars and cents. “We are going to try and recoup some of the funds through the bond agreement after the Aug. 31 deadline,” Desroches said. “But right now we just need to get the job done.” Nearly a year after the link between Riverside South and Barrhaven was supposed to open, the city’s finance and economic development committee approved $1.6 million in extra FILE funds to support the project until construction The city’s finance and economic development committee signed off on another $1.6 mil- can be completed. But Desroches said although the committee lion for the Strandherd-Armstrong bridge on June 4. approved the additional funding on June 4, it’s important to remember the city has a $22-million bond on the project. The company hired to build the $48-million beleaguered bridge went into receivership in March 2012. Then a year later the city announced some delays because of welding is-

sues. The extra funding approved by the city will pay for extra project managers, technical consultants and inspectors supervising the contractors. A portion of the funding will also be for design changes, Desroches said. “It’s not uncommon for a project as large as this to require design changes,” he said. The experience with the bridge could alter the way the city funds insurance on bigger projects Desroches said. “The bonding company is covering the delay but they are making decisions out of a boardroom in Toronto,” Desroches said. “They aren’t really exploring an accelerated timeline.” Desroches said it may be in the city’s best interests to create a reserve fund and insure their own projects against delays. In the meantime, the only option is to get the bridge built, he said. “Between the Earl Armstrong (Road) widening and the work on Strandherd Road, that corridor has had more than $100 million in work done,” Desroches said. “The bridge is the last piece of the puzzle.”

Ready to try ringette? Metcalfe association offers free trial Emma Jackson

EMC sports – Don’t hang up your skates for the season just yet. The Metcalfe and District Ringette Association is inviting all kids ages four and up to try ringette for free this weekend. On Saturday, June 15 kids can lace up at Fred Barrett Arena on Leitrim Road to try the sport with those who love it best: the players. “The idea is especially for younger kids just to see if they want to give it a go, as they’re entering a sport in the fall,” said Kerry Briggs, the association’s special events co-ordinator. “It’s something they might want to consider.” While ringette is often considered a girls’ sport, boys are very welcome to come on June 15, Briggs said. Boys are definitely part of their association, especially on the younger teams, although they are a small per-

centage compared to girls, she said. Briggs hopes 20 to 30 kids will come out to try the sport, and that at least a few of them will join the association which is smaller than many of the other ringette associations across the region. “We just hope they will have fun, and ideally if their friends are there they’ll see their friends playing the sport and decide they want to do it, too,” she said. Beginning at 11 a.m. the association will provide sticks and rings for the newcomers, who must bring their own skates, helmet and mittens or gloves. For an hour, kids can try some introductory ringette skills lead by onice instructors. On-ice volunteers will also help skaters so they don’t miss out on any of the fun. Afterward the trial, participants can enjoy snacks and refreshments while watching a Metcalfe and District ringette team play against another local team between noon and 1 p.m. During that time, association members will be available to answer questions and provide more informa-

tion about ringette and the association. Ringette is a Canadian game that was first introduced 50 years ago in North Bay, Ontario. It is a fast-paced non-intentional contact team sport on ice in which players use a straight stick to pass, receive, carry and shoot a rubber ring to score goals. This fall, the Metcalfe association will offer a Bunnies learn-to-skate program for ages four to seven, a recreational program and power skating program for ages eight to 18 and a competitive program and power skating program for ages eight to 14. Registration for the 2013-2014 season is now open. For more information or to register for the June 15 event visit www. SUBMITTED PHOTO

Canada beats Figi in top-level rugby Brier Dodge

EMC news - Fans packed Twin Elm Rugby Park on June 5 to see the Canadian rugby team take on Fiji. Rugby fans, and players competing in the high school boys provincial rugby championships, packed the stands to see the Pacific Cup match. And despite the massive size of the Fijian players, the Canadians pulled out a win in front of the hometown crowd, with a small 20-18 margin. Canadian team captain Phil Mack said the defence had to be prepared for Fiji to score from any point in the field because of their explosive power. But at the end of the day, the Canadians were more organized as a team on the field, prompting Fiji head coach Inoke Male to say his team needed to be more prepared next time. “We knew Fiji was going to play a wide open game and we needed to get our defence right to beat them,” Mack said. “We’ve done a lot of work as a team ... it paid off.” Rugby clubs in Ottawa had offered discount and group rugby tickets to their players, who were vocal throughout the game, leaving no doubt which was the home team. “When we really get tired out there and the crowd amps it, it just really gives us that extra boost,” Mack said. “It’s something in Canada we’re not really used to.” It was the first time ever that Canada had beat Fiji at home.

Prior to the game, the family of late Barrhaven Scottish player Rowan Stringer was welcomed. A moment of silence was held for the John McCrae teen, who died this spring following a head injury sustained in a rugby game.

EMC news - Along with the crafts and keepsakes kids always take home from camp, an Osgoode day camp will also help girls bring back a renewed sense of self-confidence. The So Glad 2 Be Me camp is coming to the Osgoode Youth Association July 2 to 5 for kids aged eight to 12 years old. Jen Charbonneau, creator of the camp, will attempt to teach her participants how to love themselves and others for who they are. “It’s trying to help them get a grasp on how they’re unique, how they’re special, how they’re important, ... and helping them realize they don’t have to be the same as everyone else,” Charbonneau said. “Their real friends are going to be the ones who don’t care what outfit you have on.” The camp starts Tuesday, July 2 and runs until Friday, July 5. Much like any camp, the girls will play games,

make crafts and take part in team activities, but themes will focus on improving selfesteem, promoting a healthy body image and building the capacity to deal with everyday drama. “The girls feel really empowered at the end of the week,” Charbonneau said. The eating disorder consultant and facilitator said society sends a clear message to girls about how they should look - and then bases their value on it. “Our culture is just really sending a negative message that your value is attached to your appearance,” she said, pointing to popular toys like Barbie and Bratz dolls. “They’re a perfect example of a subliminal message that this is how you have to look.” And the corporations aren’t changing any time soon. “For as many people that are out there trying to squash that myth (that you should look a certain way), there’s equally more powerful companies out there trying to promote it. It’s an uphill battle,” she

said. Charbonneau said she was inspired recently when so many teenagers and young adults spoke out against popular clothing brand Abercrombie and Fitch, whose owner stated publicly that his clothes are only meant to be worn by “the cool kids.” The brand refuses to make women’s clothing beyond size large in shirts and size 10 in pants. Charbonneau said she was pleased to see such a harmful message rejected by the very people it was targeting. “There was just an explosion; it really had a negative impact on his brand.” She hopes the camp can instill some of that confidence into her campers. “I want these young girls to tie their self-worth to what their character is like, what they’re personalities are like, the qualities that make them special and important,” she said. “Their value is not tied to their appearance.”The camp costs $250 for the week. To register by the June 25 deadline, contact Charbonneau at 613-6239553 or jen@soglad2beme. com.

Shorter wait times for blood donors in Manotick Staff

EMC news - The Canadian Blood Services clinic at Jack May Chevrolet Buick GMC dealership in Manotick hopes to offer shorter wait times after donors have faced longer than average waits in recent months. “We are committed to continuously monitoring this clinic until we have brought it in line with our national standard, which is that it should take approximately one hour to give blood,” said community development co-ordinator Jennifer Heale. “To that end, we have removed more than 20 ap-

pointments from the clinic schedule in order to ease these back ups and allow for faster processing times.” Heale said regular donors at the Manotick clinic, despite long wait times, have been a big boost for the campaign. “Your dedication has allowed us to collect 112 units of blood in Manotick this year - enough to help 22 cancer patients,” she said. Canadian Blood Services is asking for more help during National Blood Donor Week, which runs from June 10 to 14.  The organization has recently activated their national blood signal, which means that there is

an increased need for blood all across Canada - it is a call to action encouraging donors to give blood now. New and returning donors can make an appointment to give blood on Thursday, June 13 at the Jack May Chevrolet Buick GMC dealership located at 3788 Prince of Wales Drive from 2 to 7 p.m. “Your gift of blood will be used to help local hospital patients, on their behalf, thank you to making the time to help us save lives,” Heale said. Please visit www.blood. ca or call 1-888-2-Donate to make your appointment to give blood.

New program to help new moms feel at ease Michelle Nash

EMC news - New eastend parents have a place to go to help ease them into life with a newborn. The Baby Express and Breastfeeding Support Drop-in at the St. Laurent Complex gives new moms, families and caregivers the chance to consult with an Ottawa Public Health nurse and a lactation consultant for babies one year and younger. The service is available at the complex on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Executive director of the Rideau-Rockcliffe Com-

Summer Dance Camp

munity Resource Centre Catherine Dubois worked with the Vanier Community Service Centre and OPH to launch this program. “Families really do so many great things that make sure their little ones and big ones are thriving,” Dubois said. “Young parents want the very best, and they put in tremendous effort and this is one thing that helps them on their journey.” The program started up in April, offering new parents the opportunity to come out the complex on a Sunday to receive support and advice. “Having this service after hours is important,”

Dubois said, adding that most new families need some flexibility in their schedule. “Sometimes, moms feel like its not working, and with our lactation consultant and nurse you can talk it through,” she said. Choosing the location, which is centrally located for Vanier, Overbrook and the Carson Grove communities, Dubois said, was very important to ensuring this drop-in centre would be a success. “The boundaries between Overbrook and Vanier are varied, and most don’t draw lines between the two communities. We wanted to choose an area, that people from a number of the communities, could get to,” Dubois said. The location, she added, has great Sunday bus service, lots of parking and open on the weekend. “It’s a really popular community place and we have a lovely room that is easy to get to but private for the families,” she said. “It’s welcoming to go to. That was important.”Dr.

Merrilee Fullerton, member of the Ottawa Board of Health, attended the launch at the complex and said this new Baby Express location will ensure babies get the best possible start in life. Including the new location at the St. Laurent Complex, there are 20 locations across the city which offers breast feeding or newborn baby support. By adding the east end location, the city announced it is now possible for new parents to get support and advice seven days a week. The Rideau-Rockcliffe centre is one member of the 13 Community Health and Resource Centres working in all neighbourhoods throughout Ottawa and the services at these centres range from counseling to community development in support of neighbourhoods, emergency food programs, early years programs, after school programs and seniors services, a wide range of services in service to people of all ages, cultures and life experiences.

Osgoode gallery to celebrate young artists Emma Jackson

EMC news - All the coolest hangouts are decorated with local art, and that’s exactly the atmosphere the Osgoode Youth Association wants to create on Osgoode Main Street. On Saturday, June 22 O-YA will officially open Gallery B, a youth art gallery displaying paintings, photographs and jewelry created by kids and teens in the Osgoode area. From 7 to 9 p.m. family and friends, members of the public and dignitaries including Mayor Jim Watson will celebrate the 20 artists displaying their work on O-YA’s walls. O-YA director Nicole McKerracher said the catered event will impress even the most cultured art snobs. “They’re really good,” she said. “You get that youthful, natural creativity and when you pair it with technical skills you get something incredible.” Since February, O-YA has offered art workshops in photography, two styles of acrylic painting and jewelry making. With help from a $9,000 grant from the Community Foundation, established artists taught basic and advanced techniques and helped students perfect several pieces to display in the gallery. All displayed art will be for sale, with a third of the money going back to the young artist, a third supporting the art program and the final third donated to Me to We Foundation which encourages young people to pursue social change. McKerracher said the items will be priced between $30 and $50.

Emma Jackson/Metroland

Twelve-year-old Lily Stone will have several pieces of art – including a photo of this patio gargoyle – in the Gallery B at the Osgoode Youth Association opening June 22. “I’d like it to be accessible enough that other youth can purchase the pieces if they see something they like,” McKerracher said. GOING PLACES

The art program has given several artists a renewed drive to pursue their passion as a career.

Emily Dozois, a 17-yearold St. Mark High School student, has been taking photos since she bought herself a point-and-shoot camera for her 15th birthday. She quickly realized photography was a passion, and promptly signed up for a photography course through her school. Now she is planning a career in the medium after a

month working with Stittsville photographer Sarah RozemaSeaton perfecting her craft at the O-YA workshops. “I’m excited to see my work on the wall,” Dozois said. “I’m hoping someone who hasn’t seen my photos before will see them and love them.” Dozois has become increasingly fascinated with the technical side of photography: timing, lighting and postproduction editing are major elements in her photographs, which often layer several photos together to create new meaning. One of her entries is a self-portrait of Dozois’s bare back and neck, with a photo of branches superimposed on top. Another self-portrait captures the eerie qualities of a foggy night on her street in Osgoode, which had her run-

ning back and forth as she set her camera timer. She said she’s not trying to send a specific message in her art. “The idea is that it will make everyone think of something, and they’ll take something away,” Dozois said. RENAISSANCE ARTIST

Lily Stone participated in all four workshops, and will be singing and playing her ukulele at the gallery opening on June 22. The 12-year-old Kars on the Rideau Public School student has a finger in almost every creative pie; her house in North Gower displays whimsical sculptures she made at O-YA, and in her bedroom hangs a huge Dr. Seuss-inspired painting she made. During the art program,

Stone said she learned the most in the photography workshop, because she had never taken formal classes in that medium before. “We went outside a lot and I liked when we looked at all the photos and she gave us constructive criticism,” Stone said. In the painting workshops, Stone said she learned more about setting up a painting by starting at the back and moving forward. “I’ve always wanted to have a painting in a gallery,” Stone said, although she admitted it’s a bit weird to have her work hanging in a stranger’s house. “I’ve never given my art to someone I don’t know before.” For more information about the gallery opening visit

New free languages course available at Wabano Michelle Nash

EMC news - Starting this September, the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health will hold credited Algonquin and Cree courses for interested people of all ages. The new languages program is thanks to Janice Ling, a language instructor and director of the International Languages School of Eastern Ontario. Ling, who runs Chinese and Spanish classes said a recent interaction with a teacher who teachers Algonquin inspired her to create a course available to people from across the city. “The teacher told me that some of the Aboriginal communities are losing their languages, or once they come to the city, don’t use it the same,� Ling said. She then made it her mission to find a way to offer these languages to the public and found funding for the program through the French Catholic school board’s international languages program. “Chinese for example, you can learn in any international program, but you can’t do the same with Algonquin,� Ling said. “I would like to make it the norm.� Ling said without the support from the school board, none of this would be possible. “The board figured out how to find the funding,� Ling said. “When people collaborate, impossible things happen.� The languages program will offer two classes: one for school children, and one credited course for high school students and adults. Space is limited, with a maximum of 18 students per class. The classes will take place at the Wabano centre every Thursday from 6:15 to 8:30 p.m. The cost to take the credited high school course is $30, simply to cover registration costs. Children up to Grade 8 are free. The languages instructor said the goal would be make Aboriginal and First Nations languages as easy to learn as any other language. The program isn’t just about learning a language – it’s also about learning about the culture and Ling said there is no better place to learn then at Wabano. “It’s a spiritual space,� she said. “If the public uses the space, they are not only learning a language, they are taking in culture.� Lynn Fletcher is the culture coordinator for Wabano and she said she expects there to be a lot of interest in the classes. “Since we opened the new centre, I have been asked by the community about a languages program,� Fletcher said. “We have had some language courses in the past, but the funding

only lasted for so long. Thanks to the French Catholic board, these courses will be able to be offered for a long time.â€? Fletcher said although there are more than 60 Aboriginal languages, Algonquin has similarities with many and by taking the course students may have the ability to converse with many different First Nations, Aboriginals and MĂŠtis. According to a 2011 Stats Canada survey Aboriginals who can conduct a conversation in a traditional language is in decline. Only 17 per cent of the population who identified as Aboriginal responded that they were able to converse in an Aboriginal language, down from 2006 when 21 per cent said they were able to converse in an Aboriginal language. In that same report, Stats Canada found that only 4,305 non-Aboriginal people reported knowing an Aboriginal language. For the school board’s international languages program coordinator Frank Da Costa, he said it’s a shame that more Canadians, do not know any Aboriginal languages. “It really struck me that no one is teaching this. It’s crazy for us not to do this,â€? he said. “If we are able to do this, if we can help make more people capable of speaking one of these languages, we are going to do it.â€? Working with Wabano, Da Costa said, just made sense. “We like to have our schools where our community is, now all we need is the students,â€? he said. Currently, the board serves more than 6,000 students learning 20 different languages through its languages program. Da Costa said more than 70 per cent of the students taking the courses are students from outside the board. In addition to adding the Cree and Algonquin language courses, the board will also add Angolan and Swahili.


Students from the first International Languages School of Eastern Ontario class visited the Parliament building this past year. The languages school will now offer Algonquin and Cree courses at the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health. Da Costa said ultimately, he would like to also offer other Aboriginal and Inuit languages to the program, and is currently reaching out to other organizations to see if that is a possibility. “These language courses give them (the students) not only the knowledge of a language, but also about the culture,� Da Costa said. “I like to say that the extra languages we teach open up the children and students to the world and the world to them.�

En garde for new sword fest Michelle Nash

EMC news - The grounds at the Vanier community centre will turn medieval this weekend as men and women come across the land arrive to compete in the community’s first ever sword festival. The event, Borealis Swordplay Symposium, is a two-day event, with art of arms and fierce sword competitions planned for June 15 and a pomp and regalia on June 16. Les Maîtres d’Armes has been teaching historical fencing since 2005, and has been running its program at the Vanier community centre for the past five years. The organization has participated in many other events over the years, but this will be the first year for the swordplay symposium. Jason Smith, a principal instructor and director for the organization, said the event is Les Maîtres d’Armes way to introduce Ottawa to historical martial arts. “We thought it was high time to bring something to the Eastern Canada, to let people in this part of the country who might not otherwise travel abroad to gain the benefit of

some of the leading instructors in the world,” he said. The event is divided into the two days, Smith said, so students from all levels can gain instruction on a variety of different fencing styles. “Yes, it will be competitive, but it is not a competition,” Smith said. “The winner is the person chosen among the participants as having shown the best display of the art, with the best sportsmanship, or dare we say ‘chivalric demeanor.’ ” Participants will be divided into factions to challenge and fight one another in amicable competition. The community is encouraged to come out and cheer on the swordsmen and women, while they challenge each other. The Sunday event will also have a charity barbecue that will help raising money for the Youth Services Bureau. The organization has helped raise money for the Youth Services Bureau in the past, and felt hosting a barbecue was a great way to included them in their first event. “We thought we could continue to help the organization we’ve grown to have a relationship with by inviting them to provide our fighters with

valuable sustenance during their daylong adventure,” Smith said. There are 30 active members in the organization who come out to the regularly scheduled training sessions at the centre on Wednesday night from 7 to 10 p.m. There is a free trial class offered each week beginning at 8 p.m. for individuals who are interested in seeing if swordplay is for them. “It is great exercise, and addresses the imagination. Who hasn’t, as a child, dreamt of being a musketeer or a knight?” Smith said. “The sword is a weapon that captures the imagination, and people are drawn to swordplay for fun, for the love of history, or for the practice of a serious martial system.” Bernard Emmerich said he comes out because regardless of size or sex, people have a chance to hold their own in the ring. The club practices a number of different historical European Martial Arts including art of Armizare, a holistic art (wrestling, dagger, arming sword, long sword, spear and pole axe).

Actress Sandra Oh to receive Key to the City City of Ottawa

EMC news - Ottawa-born actress Sandra Oh will be presented with the Key to the City by Mayor Jim Watson in recognition of her significant contributions and accomplishments, both nationally and internationally, in the field of the performing arts. On July 8, Oh will receive the key in a ceremony at city hall. “Sandra Oh has earned accolades as a talented actress who is dedicated to her craft and respected by both peers and critics alike,” said Watson. “We are proud to call her Ottawa’s own, and have her serve as a role model to aspiring performing artists in Ottawa and around the world.” Born in Nepean, Oh got her start on stage as a ballet dancer at the age of four, but shifted focus to acting after performing in the Knoxdale Public School play The Canada

Goose, when she was 10.

Pet Adoptions FRECKLES




Meet Freckles, (A118662). She is a patient and loving three-year-old, spayed female, torbi and white, Domstic Shorthair cat waiting for her forever home. While Freckles has been at the shelter since December 31, 2012, she is still hopeful that she will grab a special someone’s attention. Freckles spent some time in Foster Care and got along great with the gentle cat she shared a house with, but would rather not have to live with a dog. This special girl is looking for

a warm, snuggly lap to curl into for some love and attention. Freckles would love an owner who knows that she has an affinity for wand toys and toys on strings, what would be even better is if you would take some time to play with her daily! Meet Finnegan (A150704), a very special 13-year-old, neteured male, brown tabby, Domestic Shorthair cat who is in foster care due to recurrent upper respiratory tract infection while here at our shelter. Finnegan was surrendered to the shelter by


his owner on November 2, 2012 and is ready to find his permanent family. He is a lovely gentleman with great house manners. You can often find him spending time with people, curled next to them on the couch, or snoozing in a sunbeam. Finnegan takes some time to warm up to people, but with time has started to figure out that humans make for great friends, as they usually give into his charm and offer ear scratches. Finnegan has even learned that the foster family’s cat and dog are okay too! Finnegan is a “Special Needs” adoption as there is the slight possibility that he will suffer from a chronic low grade cold that may require ongoing medical management. We encourage you to discuss Finnegan’s special needs with your family veterinarian so that together you can help him live a happy, healthy life. If you are interested in finding out more about Gus, Wiz or the other pets available for adoption from the Ottawa Humane Society, visit , call the Adoption Centre at 613-725-3166 ext. 258 or e-mail

My name is Nikou and I am a 4lb 5oz, 13 year old Abyssinian. I was adopted from the Cornwall SPCA at one year old and live very happily in Ottawa. I am very personable, love everyone who comes to the house, and run when I hear the doorbell to greet guests. Everyone who visits wants to take me to their house but of course my family will not allow it. The only thing I do not greet is other cats or dogs, on my property.

Do you know where your cat is? job; spread diseases; kill wildlife; and in some cases, inflict wounds on people and other animals. Is this freedom? Outdoor cats are not free. They fight a daily battle for survival against exposure to the elements, accidents, disease, poison, abuse and fights with other animals, theft or loss. On average an outdoor cat lives approximately three years while the lifespan of a cat that has been kept indoors (and supervised while outdoors) is approximately 15 years. The OHS recommends that you keep your feline companion on a harness or under supervision when outside. Have a microchip implanted in your animal as a precaution against loss. A microchip will supply your pet with identification that lasts a lifetime. Harness training is a safe way to allow your cat to experience the pleasures of the great outdoors. To learn more about how to harness train your cat, visit the Companion Animal Tips section on our website, Ensure your cat’s safety. Your feline companion and your neighbours will thank you for your effort!

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

What may be desired is not necessarily the safest... Even though cats may love to have the freedom of running around outside, so too would dogs whose freedom we strictly control. In fact, small children would relish the opportunity to roam freely all day, with little or no regard for their safety. In today’s world this freedom is just not possible. Society has established many rules for our protection. We wouldn’t think of allowing our small children to go outside alone where they are exposed to many dangers, yet many cat owners readily open the door for feline friends to go out unsupervised not knowing if they will return the same day, the next day, or ever. Are you a good neighbour? Another factor to consider, besides your cat’s safety, is your cat’s effect on the environment and the nuisance he or she might unwittingly create for neighbours. Cat fights are noisy and offensive; unneutered cats breed indiscriminately; their spraying and feces are pollutants; they get into garbage; ruin gardens; cause car accidents; cause damage to a car’s paint

Manotick News EMC - Thursday, June 13, 2013

EMC lifestyle - Walking into the first of Bob Mitchell’s several sprawling greenhouses, the sweet, earthy smell of ripening tomatoes takes over your senses. For a brief moment, it’s just you and the fruit. You’re filled with a sense of hominess, of nostalgia for your grandmother, or the proud memory of the first vegetable you ever nurtured. When you come back to reality, you start to look around and you can hardly believe your eyes. Row upon row of leafy tomato plants climb toward the soft, filtered light coming in from above. The greenhouse seems to stretch on forever. Little technology gets in the way of nature’s beauty; the stems grow from plasticsheathed blocks of crushed coconut in raised troughs and are clipped to small rods above. Small pipes wind along the floor, masked by green tangles of sagging vines. Every so often a bumblebee lazes by, off to pollinate another plant or return to one of the hives placed throughout the greenhouse. Mitchell, the owner and founder of SunTech Greenhouses, on Doyle Road south of Manotick, somehow fits

into the greenhouse ecosystem, despite a brusque manner and a penchant for loud exclamations. The lifelong farmer moved to a dairy and cash crop farm south of Kenmore when he was six, which he farmed with his family until 1998. And then he entered a greenhouse for the first time in his life. “The smell, that was what hooked me,” he said. From that visit in September 1998, it took 11 months for Mitchell to buy the Doyle Road property, set up a greenhouse that covers a hectare, and plant 22,000 beefsteak tomato plants. “Just a starter kit,” Mitchell laughed. Today, the farm has 1.6 hectares of greenhouse facilities and produces 11 different commercial products. That includes several tomato varieties as well as eggplants, cucumbers, peppers and green beans. NATURE’S WAY

While SunTech certainly doesn’t profess to be organic or pesticide free, it makes use of what nature has to offer. A common greenhouse pest is the white fly, a tiny white bug that can multiply into the billions. As they drink the juices from the plants, they

excrete everywhere – and that can prevent the plants from getting the sunlight they need. But instead of spraying plants with chemicals, Mitchell brings in 40,000 encarsia formosa, a tiny parasitic wasp that lays its eggs in white fly eggs – essentially stopping the reproduction cycle. “You don’t pay them by the hour and they don’t miss,” Mitchell said. Bumblebees are another important part of the greenhouse ecosystem. Brought in from Windsor, Ont., Mitchell’s bees are relied upon to pollinate the tomatoes. The number of bees loose in the greenhouse directly correlates to the number of open flowers, Mitchell said. There are usually two or three bee stings a year, he said, but as the chief bee handler he has managed to escape a sting for nearly 14 years. Of course, the whole point of a greenhouse is to get around Mother Nature’s whims, and SunTech employs a complex computer system to monitor the indoor and outdoor temperatures and adjust the roof vents accordingly. The average daily temperature inside is about 19 degrees, Mitchell said, and they can harvest about 10 months of the year.

Get ready to go zip-zip-zip lining


Florida, Costa Rica and Nicaragua are destinations for zip line enthusiasts. But you won’t have to travel that far for exhilarating zip line experiences, which are growing in popularity in North America. Ownership of Logos Land Resort, just outside Cobden, is hoping a significant investment in its new three-leg, zip line course will bring smiles and goose bumps to many more of its customers in coming years. Challenges Unlimited Inc. is completing construction and installation of a parallel zip line course over Astrolabe Lake this month. The course warms up nicely, with the first zip carrying visitors 201 metres across a small bay. Zip No. 2 runs 343 metres across the middle of the lake, before the final 401-metre leg returns buckled-in riders back above the water. The total ride is 3,100 feet, or almost one kilometre, at speeds of up to 35 km/h, usually six metres above the water, but sometimes closer to 25. Logos Land owner Jerrold Paxton’s business partner, Kevin Cahill, died last December, but not the dream to continue to improve on what Logos Land offers its customers. Facilities already in place include the water park, with its slide, splash pad, grill house, mini-golf, animal petting farm, beach and giant lake trampolines. There are also timeshare villas, motel suites, 90 recreational vehicle (RV) park and camp sites, rental RVs, 100 wilderness camp sites for trailers or tenters, and the neighbouring Oaks of Cobden golf course.

“We have four goals in mind,” says Logos Land director of marketing and sales Fred Glover. The first goal is to offer something, like the zip line course, that caters more to older youngsters. “We’ve made investments in recent years for the little kids, like the petting farm and the splash pad,” says Glover. “But for older kids, as families grow up, you don’t want them to hit the boredom curve.” The same philosophy applies to younger adults. The connection of the zip line for these potential customers also happens to coincide with the ideal weight for zip line passengers. The weight allowance runs from 75 to about 275 pounds. The second marketing goal, says Glover, is to expand Logos Land’s season, which for the longest time has been concentrated in July and August. “The zip line can be used year-round, but more practically it will certainly run in the summer, as well as in the spring and fall.” Logos Land has already experienced positives vibes about the new course. For example, response at the recent Ottawa RV Show, which attracts more than 20,000 visitors, was extremely positive. “Our big posters stopped them,” says Glover. “It surprised us, especially the positive verbal feedback from 40-, 50- and 60-year-olds. But we’ll see for sure this summer.” Glover acknowledges there’s another zip line, at Chutes Coulonge, while pointing out that Logos Land Resort aspires to become a growing part of multi-activity tourist packages in the area, thus Logos Land’s third

marketing goal. For example, there’s no reason tourists can’t zip over Astrolabe Lake, play golf rounds at a variety of courses in the area, see the Bonnechere Caves, zip some more in Chutes Coulonge and try some whitewater rafting or kayaking. Unlike Logos Land, Chutes Coulonge offers two zip lines of 100 and 260 metres over whitewater rapids and a shorter nine-zip series. As Glover says, “Every zip line you see is different.” The area’s newest zip line, says Glover, will be simple, safe, exhilarating and an atSTEVE NEWmAN/mETROLAND tractive addition to what Lo- The project manager for the Logos Land zip line is Dave Humphrys of Challenges Unlimgos Land already offers. ited.

Five simple tips before hitting the road EMC lifestyle - Summer getaways are common indulgence in Canada and for the more than four-in-five of us who own, lease or finance a vehicle, exploring the Great White North often begins with the push of a pedal. Whether your plans include cross-country road trips or a weekend exodus to the cottage, here are a few tips to keep your vehicle looking and running its best on the open road: • Keep it clean: Starting a road trip with a clean car is a must, but be eco-responsible. Always look for products that are designed to be tough on grease, bugs, mud and carbon deposits, while still being safe for the environment. • Check your wheels: Make sure tires are road-trip ready. For better handling and mileage, swap winter tires for summer ones, or all-season types. Check the pressure of the tires before you take off by consulting the owner’s manual or on the side of the tire. Properly inflated tires improve grip on the road and

save money at the pump. • Top up fluids: No one wants to be stuck on the side of the highway. Having proper levels of windshield washer fluid, engine oil, radiator coolant and brake fluid can make or break a road trip. Check the owner’s manual for the recommended fluid levels. Remember overfilling your fluids can do just as much damage as not filling up enough. • Get rid of the salt: As the temperatures rise, so does the rate of corrosion and after a full-season of battling snow and slush, the chemicals used to clear roads can eat away at a car’s body. Keep your car looking and running its best by getting a professional rust protection at least once a year. • Take it to an expert: Stay safe and avoid unforeseen expenses by following your car’s recommended maintenance schedule. See a professional to give you the green light for long-distance travel.

Keep your vehicle looking its best and running well for summer travel.

Toll out-of-towners on Hwy 174: councillor

EMC news - Ottawa should charge outof-town motorists for the privilege of driving on highway 174, says Coun. Stephen Blais. The Cumberland councillor is proposing the city look at making the municipally owned highway into a toll road, perhaps using an electronic toll system similar to Highway 407 in the Greater Toronto Area. People move to surrounding municipalities like Clarence-Rockland because homes are less expensive, Blais said, and then they commute west into the city for work. “Frankly, I don’t think it’s fair that Ottawa taxpayers continue to subsidize their use of the road,” Blais. “They shouldn’t consume our services for free.” Blais estimates that around 20 per cent of the vehicles on highway 174 in the morning come from outside the city’s boundaries. The number of vehicles moving through the highway 174/Highway 417 split on any given morning is around 9,200; 2,200 vehicles get on highway 174

in Clarence-Rockland each morning. “If you took those vehicles off, we wouldn’t need to widen the split,” Blais said. Highway 174 is an expensive road to maintain because of the volume of traffic it handles and the speed at which vehicles move. Aside from the bus Transitway, no other Ottawa road has as high a requirement for snowplowing, salting and pothole repair, Blais said. He couldn’t provide figures for the annual maintenance cost. The city is currently in the process of conducting an environmental assessment to investigate the possibility of widening the highway and the road’s “split” at Highway 417 is being widened this year. The toll would be justified because it is an “extremely rare circumstance” for a municipality to have the responsibility of maintaining a highway, Blais said. Most highways are overseen by the province, with a couple exceptions, such as the 174 and the Gardiner Expressway and Don Valley Parkway in Toronto. Since the province downloaded responsibility for highway 174 to the City of Ottawa in the 1990s, the city has requested

several times that the province re-assume responsibility for the highway. “The province has no intention to reupload it,” Blais said. “That would be the best-case scenario, but I don’t believe it will happen.” To demonstrate the city is serious about this issue, Blais is working with city staff on the best way to approach the possibility of adding a toll to the highway. The FILE councillor planned to bring a notice of mo- Cumberland Coun.

Dickinson Days The annual Dickinson Days event in Manotick managed to avoid the weekend’s rain on June 1 as the square was filled with dancing, music, vendors, and activities. Above, Kelsey Quartermain, left, from Carleton Place, and Manotick’s Alyssa Ruigrok practice some of their old-time skills at Watson’s Mills.

Feds announce national anti-bullying campaign Jessica Cunha

EMC news - The federal government will fund the training of 2,400 youths from across Canada to deliver antibullying workshops. Each youth facilitator will commit to reaching another 20 young people in their communities to help prevent bullying and discrimination. The Canadian Red Cross will receive $250,000 from the federal government to continue its youth-led Stand up to Bullying and Discrimination project. Canadian Heritage Minister James Moore announced the money for the program – which is expected to reach more than 50,000 Canadian youth – at A.Y. Jackson Secondary School in Glen Cairn on June 3 with Laureen Harper and Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley. Hubley’s late son Jamie attended A.Y. Jackson before taking his own life after being bullied for his sexual orientation, which had led to a deep depression he couldn’t overcome. “Communities across this

country, including this one, have been deeply affected by tragedies related to bullying, cyberbullying and intimidation. And there are far too many tragedies,” said Moore. “If we do nothing, it will lead to the death of children … It can’t be said more plainly or more accurately than that.” Cyberbullying through social media is a reality many adults never had to face. “Our kids now face pressures that really didn’t exist when I was growing up,” said Harper, who is married to Prime Minister Stephen Harper. “As parents it’s very hard to help our children because their experiences are so different than anything we had. “That’s very scary as a mother.” CREATE HOPE

Three youth-led forums in the Atlantic region, Ontario and British Columbia will also reach out to 150 youth to step up and help put an end to bullying. “Actions like this announcement today (are) what

we need to be successful,” said Hubley. “Canadians, such as my family, have paid too high a price and (we need) meaningful progress before other families must carry the burden of losing someone special, like my boy Jamie, who only wanted a safer community for everyone. “With the help of the Red Cross and other frontline workers, we can create hope for a better day.” Hubley pledged to do “everything I can” to have at least one student from his ward receive the training, which is offered to students between the age of 13 and 17. “We cannot expect someone else to solve this issue for us. Success will take each of us doing our part,” he said. “By supporting young people to become leaders in their schools and communities through programs like this, we will create safer places and communities for everyone. Let’s join together and say it’s time to turn bullying on its head.” JESSICA CUNHA/METROLAND The funding is provided The Canadian Red Cross will receive $250,000 from the federal government to continue through the government’s its youth-led Stand up to Bullying and Discrimination project. The announcement was Youth Take Charge program. made at A.Y. Jackson Secondary School in Kanata on June 3.

You could be feeling under the weather this week, Aries. Even if your to-do list is a mile long, you need to take some time to recuperate before getting back to business. Life experience is your advantage, Taurus. When your company is looking to fill a position, they will most likely hire from within. Make the most of this opportunity. Gemini, just when things seem hopeless, a small ray of light shines through and you find a solution to your problem. Scorpio has some wise words, so listen up. Cancer, once you think you have all of the answers, something pops up to make you reassess a situation. It could take a few days for you to find the answer you’re looking for. Leo, you may have fun in the sun on your mind, but others are urging you to buckle down and focus on some tasks that need to get wrapped up before you leave. There are some changes coming at work, Virgo. You just don’t know if they will be to your advantage or be something that could tilt you off your axis.

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!

9. Gold fineness measure 10. Military snack bar 12. Capital of Uzbekistan 14. Old Tokyo 15. Heat in a microwave 17. A waterproof raincoat 19. Stared sullenly 20. Slang for cool 23. Revolves 24. Don’t know when yet 25. Sports shoe 26. Opposite of beginning 27. Chevy sedan model 28. Communist nickname 29. 007’s Flemming 30. Drama awards 31. Badgered 32. Towards land 33. Leaseholder 34. Capital of Gyeonggi-do 36. Yellowstone or Central


CLUES ACROSS 1. Chicago time 4. And hearty 8. In a murderous frenzy (var. sp.) 10. Substance that imparts a hue 11. Italian’s capital 12. Oral flavors 13. The Pitt Family artist, Wm. 15. Most buffoonish 16. A group of 8 17. Overlords 18. Camera artists 21. Resinlike substance in shellac 22. Fundamentally important 23. Fishing implement 24. Hamilton’s bill 25. An adult female hog 26. Emergency broadcast network

Libra, you have much to learn, but you cannot cram it all into one week. There is no crash course on life. Make the most of a getaway opportunity. You can’t seem to focus on one thing for very long this week, Scorpio. You might have to spend a few days clearing your mind before you can refocus on the tasks at hand. Sagittarius, you are not one to let an obstacle block you from your goal. Rethink your strategy and you will soon find yourself back on the path to success. Capricorn, changes at home are in store and you may be feeling both excited and anxious at the same time. This is perfectly understandable as you await the news. Aquarius, vacation plans may have been elusive until now, but you finally have the funds and the time to take the trip you desire. Your traveling partner is still up in the air. Pisces, a new season inspires you to make changes and reconsider old relationships. Call it a late spring cleaning of your life.
