Green light for Osgoode ATV network Blanchfield residents feel ‘betrayed’ by councillor

EMC news - As an ATV club celebrated a victory in creating the city’s first ATV trail network, people who live

along the trail were livid their councillor broke a promise. Blanchfield Road resident Heather Hamilton was disappointed that city council’s final approval of the two-year pilot project did not specify that

no ATVs would be allowed to drive on her street after the first year of the project. That’s a promise she felt her city councillor, Doug Thompson, made at a meeting the week before. “We’re surprised, disappointed and feel somewhat betrayed,” Hamilton said, adding that Thompson “doesn’t seem very good at living up to the commitments he made.” Thompson said he is still

committed to getting ATVs off Blanchfield Road if there are problems after the first year. The city’s legal department advised him it would be better to craft an amendment that will require the agriculture and rural affairs committee – which Thompson chairs – to review the Blanchfield issue after one year. But it would be up to the committee to determine if ATVs should be banned on that road.

Concerns about safety and dust on Blanchfield Road dominated the discussion when the agriculture and rural affairs committee debated the proposal on May 6. Thompson said residents “may have” felt he made a commitment to remove ATVs from Blanchfield, but reviewing it after a year is the same thing. See THOMPSON, page 16

Seniors on Site gives back to ROSSS EMC news - An Ottawa company is taking its mandate to assist seniors one step further. Seniors on Site offers private services to help Ottawa seniors with daily living needs, from companionship and care to housekeeping and handyman work. This June, in honour of Seniors Month, for every new client recruited to Seniors on Site the service will donate $15 to be divided between three charitable service providers: Rural

efforts in helping seniors and families, and hope this can be the start of a great initiative on our part to continue to give back.” Inman said the three charities serve the areas Seniors on Site most often covers with its own services. “We get a lot of our clients from referrals from them,” she said. Seniors on Site employs experienced independent contractors, all over the age of 50, to meet the support needs of its clients, whether for transportation, companionship, housework and all the other things required for independent living.

Ottawa South Support Services, the Eastern Ontario Resource Centre and Good Companions. “We work closely with the resource centres of Ottawa and surrounding areas and it makes perfect sense for us to be able to give back to these facilities, which do such a phenomenal job helping everyone in the community,” said Caroline Inman, client services manager for SOS. “For many, getting assistance from the centres is a lifeline and not everyone is in a position to be able to afford private agencies. We are very proud to support their independent

Inman said that all support agencies struggle to get the most care to clients that their funding and fundraising can provide; as a result, there are many referrals made to other providers. In this mutually respectful environment, companies like SOS naturally want to help their comrades. In the five years SOS has been inexistence, they have helped more than 200 families and individuals meet their specific needs. June is Seniors Month in the province of Ontario.

Residents glimpsed the future of Greenbank Road and the park-and-ride that will terminate the southwest transitway extension during an open house in Barrhaven on June 11.

Manotick residents talk transit at Greenbank consultation Jennifer McIntosh

EMC news - Residents got a chance to see the future of Greenbank Road and the parkand-ride that will terminate the southwest transitway extension during an open house in Barrhaven on June 11. In 2006 the city approved a recommended plan for a realigned Greenbank Road. The plan incorporated Greenbank from Malvern Road to Cambrian Road. The area was defined as a key component of the transportation network in the community. The community design plan identified an extension of Greenbank south of Cambrian to the former urban boundary. But Tim Dickinson, a planner that works for MMM Group, the consultant that is working on the project’s environmental assessment, said with the expansion of the urban boundary to Barnsdale Road, development proposals between Cambrian and the Mahogany development in Manotick have necessitated a study of the transportation network in the area. “The communities of Barrhaven and Manotick represent 30 per cent of the city’s population growth,” Dickinson said.

The transit study, which looked at traffic patterns from Barrhaven South and Manotick during the morning peak hours, was one of the things presented to residents during the first of three public consultations held at the Stonebridge Golf and Country Club. The report says 2,800 transit trips are forecast to originate from Barrhaven south and Manotick by 2031. The old location of Greenbank road would be closed off at the Jock River for motorists, but where the new road goes and where the transit system terminates are all up for debate. “We have to see if people want the park-and-ride in the centre of the community or if people wanted it extended further to Barnsdale,” Dickinson said. One resident said he was concerned with a Barnsdaleroad park-and-ride, people would start to use Viewbank Road – which isn’t really able to handle that much traffic. Frank McKinney, an engineer with the city, said that would be considered when they were looking at locations. The city is currently working on an environmental assessment of the area. Dickinson said that would

include walking the route and identifying species at risk. “We will work with the developer (Minto), to see what has already been done,” he said. Klaus Beltzner, president of the Manotick Village Community Association, asked if a Highway 416 interchange on Barnsadale Road – included in the city’s 2008 Transportation Master Plan – was still in the works. McKinney said the city is looking at a full interchange on Barnsdale, but is waiting on the province for a full decision. Any plans on a Greenbank Road realignment would depend on findings from the environmental assessment and community input. “Just because we have seven or eight options, doesn’t mean those are the ones we have to go with,” McKinney said. “Your input is very important.” Another public consultation will be held in the fall, with findings presented to council next spring if everything goes well, Dickinson said. More information on the project can be found on the city’s website under environmental assessments. Comments can be sent to frank.

Emergency response Greely man recognized for 911 campaign 25 years later Emma Jackson

EMC news - Almost 25 years to the day after the city’s first 911 call was made, Greely resident Mark O’Neill received the mayor’s city builder award for his efforts to change the region’s emergency response system. During a city council meeting on Wednesday, June 12 Mayor Jim Watson and Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson commended O’Neill – now the president and CEO of the Ca-

nadian Museum of Civilization corporation – for his “outstanding community service and public advocacy” to bring the universal 911 emergency phone number to the city, as well as a paramedics program. Anyone born in the past 25 years would find it hard to fathom that anything other than 911 was ever used for emergency calls. But before June 22, 1988, residents in the Ottawa-Carleton region had to navigate 27 different emergency numbers to get the help they needed.

“If you dialed 0 you might get an operator as far away as Cornwall, who didn’t know where you were or what you needed,” O’Neill said. “Those precious moments in an emergency response time can be the difference between life and death. We just didn’t have the standard Ottawa needed.” O’Neill was a 21-year-old political science student at Carleton University when he joined Ottawa General Hospital doctor Justin Maloney, his brother Mark, and Geri Migicovsky to form Action 911 in



Museum of Civilization CEO Mark O’Neill receives the mayor’s city builder award for helping to implement the city’s 911 universal emergency phone number 25 years ago. 1984. At the time, Ottawa-Carleton had one of the lowest cardiac arrest survival rates in North America, O’Neill said. In two years, the group rallied residents to support the change, and slowly convinced regional politicians to let go of cost concerns and location jealousies in order to save lives. The move was approved in 1986 and implemented by 1988. In 2012, Ottawa’s 911 call centre was busy answering 290,976 emergency requests. LIFE AND DEATH

Before Action 911 began its campaign, Dr. Maloney, a close family friend, told O’Neill about a teenager who had been killed in a workplace accident the year before. “A teenage boy was putting boxes into a box cutter at the

Herongate Mall and got himself stuck in the box cutter up to his waist,” O’Neill said. “They went to try and save his life and they couldn’t and he died.” Maloney told O’Neill that if Ottawa had had a proper emergency response system, that boy might have lived. “That story had an impact on me,” O’Neill said. “When I heard about some of the tragic stories where people needlessly died ... I just thought this is so basic.” Getting 911 implemented was just the first step in improving Ottawa’s emergency response. Next on the list was putting paramedics into ambulances – but you couldn’t do that until you had 911, O’Neill said. After the 911 system was established, O’Neill went back to work pushing for paramedics.

At the time, it was just ambulance drivers and attendants arriving at emergency calls, with few lifesaving skills at their disposal. He helped found a public advocacy campaign called Action Paramedic, aimed at lobbying the Ontario Ministry of Health to upgrade the skills of all ambulance attendants to advancedcare paramedics, which would bring hospital-level care to the site of emergencies. By 1994 Ottawa and 12 other municipalities in Ontario had paramedics on staff. CITY BUILDER

O’Neill said it was nice to be recognized at city hall, but he couldn’t take all of the credit. “I really share that with a lot of people who worked very hard over the years,” he said. O’Neill is known for his humility. Thompson, who helped Watson present the award, said O’Neill is a “humble, nice guy” who has always been active in the community. “Mark was just a young guy and said this is not right,” Thompson said. “He was the father figure of 911 in Ottawa.” Today, O’Neill is an active member of the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa, and has been the secretary-treasurer of the club since 2011. He is also the cochairman of the parish council at St. John the Evangelist Church in Enniskerry. In 2012, he received the Diamond Jubilee Medal for his commitment to the Friends of the Canadian War Museum.

Greely group searches for brighter future at AGM down. “One more year (as president) and if there’s no one else we’ll shut it down if we have to,� Brayman told the group.

EMC news - Low turnout at the Greely Community Association’s annual general meeting has board members questioning the association’s future. Whether it was the rare nice weather or Game 1 of the Stanley Cup final that kept people away on June 12, the meeting attracted only seven people and most of them were board members. After remarks from Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson and a brief report from president Bruce Brayman, talk turned to improving community participation in the group. The association’s monthly meetings usually average less than 10 people. Even bringing in speakers – in May a South Nation Conservation expert discussed proper septic maintenance – hasn’t boosted numbers significantly. Still, the group said it will consider the merits of themed monthly meetings, which residents can look forward to. Those meetings could include speakers from local hobby clubs, emergency personnel and business people.

ment, infrastructure and traffic issues, has commissioned and completed a safety audit of the village, and has been actively pursuing an ambitious gateway project. And their efforts are not falling on deaf ears. Thompson’s report noted that many crumbling roads in and around the village are due to be rebuilt or resurfaced either this year or in 2014, and planning is underway for sev-

eral neighbourhood and community parks in Greely. “We’re not getting far fast, but at least we’re getting somewhere,� Brayman said. The association will recess for the summer, but meetings begin the second Wednesday of September and continue until June.

Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson addresses a small group at the Greely Community Association’s annual general meeting on June 12. Member Pamela Dans suggested a semi-annual welcome event for newcomers to the village, which would introduce them to the association and welcome them properly into the community. That idea was well-received and could start as early as September. But the group also needs more residents willing to take an active role on the board, Brayman said. At the meeting, Brayman

was acclaimed for his fourth year as president, despite the constitution stating that the president can only serve a two-year term before taking a break. The executive had to change the constitution last year because no one stepped up to replace Brayman. It will have to be changed again this year. Brayman said the lack of interest from residents could mean the association shuts

A rose by any other name


ike many fans, we’re a little disappointed after the city’s new Canadian Football League franchise announced its name as the Ottawa RedBlacks. The naming has certainly put Ottawa on the map, but not in a good way. The moment it was announced, the Internet lit up like a Christmas tree with people criticizing the choice on sports fan websites and Twitter accounts. To make matters worse, the franchise sent out a request to the media to spell out the name using all caps. One pundit on the Internet quipped, “The Ottawa REDBLACKS are apparently that one guy in high school who wants to give himself his own nickname that everyone calls him.” OK, the name Rough Riders was unavailable, as the rights are still controlled by the team’s former owner, Horn Chen. Jeff Hunt, president of Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group, the organization responsible for bringing CFL football back to the National Capital Region, said red and black are the colours of Ottawa sport, with teams ranging from the original Rough Riders of the 1890s to the past and modern day Senators. The name is “unique, maybe even a little edgy,” said Hunt, adding it’s a brand that will stand the test of time and that fans will eventually get used to it.

But that begs the question, why introduce a name that fans must “get used to”, instead of coming up with something creative, that captures the imagination of a city, and makes fans eager to get behind the team? If the franchise wanted to attract a whole new generation of fans, why pick a name that harkens back to the 20th century? Also, RedBlacks doesn’t exactly smack of creativity -- we can only imagine the process for coming up with that logo: something along the lines of “Hey, the uniforms are red and black...why not call them RedBlacks!” The name RedBlacks will probably stick, but following the example of sports cities throughout the ages, fans will inevitably invent a more palatable nickname. Something that rolls of the tongue when people cheer at Lansdowne Park -- the same way fans in other cities came up with the Habs for the Montreal Canadiens. Blue Shirts for the New York Rangers, or the Boatmen for the Toronto Argonauts. Ottawa’s fans have plenty to celebrate with the return of CFL football to Lansdowne Park starting in 2014, bringing with it all the fabulous traditions of the fall, such as tailgate parties and a touch of frostbite. Eventually we’ll learn to live with the club’s official name. As William Shakespeare once said, “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.”


Neighbourhood summer events prove it’s always nicer outside


hings that start small and comfy can get big and out of hand, particularly if they are successful. Eventually, people begin to lament the absent smallness and comfiness. You see that happening in today’s discussions about the ByWard Market. If this has happened to Westfest, a neighbourhood festival that started 10 years ago, it isn’t obvious from the little window of it I took in. Certainly it has grown considerably, attracting more visitors and presenting bigger entertainment names. But the neighbourhood feeling still survives. I walked down there on a Saturday thinking it would be a nice to grab some street lunch. Walking was my first good decision. Success breeds cars and cars breed congestion and congestion breeds ill temper. Walking avoided all that, and produced an appetite. Where there are crowds you will find people with different attitudes towards being in them. For example, some people are attracted to long line-ups, figuring that they must indicate that the food is good. Other people, instinctively go where the lineup is shortest. That would be me, finding a very nice Polish sausage from a wagon at a traditional spot

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town beside Mountain Equipment Co-op. There then followed a period of trying to remember how to walk and eat at the same time, followed by a period of trying to remember how to get mustard off a shirt. At this time of the day, a kind of happy amateurism prevailed. The big names would come later, after dark, but for now there was a feeling that it was people you knew playing the guitars and violins. Many street musicians and entertainers were highly experienced, you could tell, but there were also high school kids happily pounding out their rock chords, perhaps newly emerged from the garage. There was an enjoyable middle school stage band playing Route 66 for an appreciative crowd. One puzzling thing: of the 21 musicians in the band, only three were boys, by my count. Why is that?

know how much fun it is to pick up a horn and be in the band? Just down the street is a jazz band of middle-aged men and women. You can tell they’re having fun. The spirit of amateurism is also evident in the booths, where small items are being sold, worthy causes are being promoted and demonstrations of this and that are taking place. Few of the people staffing the booths do this for a living. That means there is no such thing as a hard sell, which is refreshing. It also means that the customers are more patient than they might be in store. At a neighbourhood thing like this, you bump into people know you and stop to chat. When you think back upon those chats, you realize they have one thing in common: Nobody is complaining. How rare is that? Two people in Ottawa meet and converse and nobody complains? It must be the sausages and the proximity of ice cream. Or it may be that there are no cars around. We own the street on this day and it feels good. (Although the sensation can be a bit disorienting at intersections where cars reappear and the pedestrians and drivers have temporarily forgotten to watch out for each other.) Another puzzling thing: nobody talks

Kars musician to play Bluesfest Emma Jackson

Targeting International Tax Evasion Honest Canadians work hard and pay their taxes in full and on time. But some people feel that they are above the law. They take their money and hide it in offshore bank accounts, resulting in millions of dollars in lost revenue for the government. Since 2006, the Canada Revenue Agency has audited nearly 8,000 cases of suspected international tax evasion, identifying about $4.5 billion in unpaid taxes. This is not fair to law-abiding Canadians. That is why our government is cracking down on these international tax cheats to ensure that taxes on money hidden overseas are recovered. By not paying taxes, these tax cheats increase the tax burden for average Canadians, leaving less money available for important services like health care and education. As part of Economic Action Plan 2013, our government is empowering the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) with all the tools they need to crack down on this aggressive tax avoidance.

Much of his childhood was spent in the countryside visiting family farmsteads in Renfrew and the Cornwall area. The people he met made a deep impression on him. “It was the hard work, the lifestyle; being around people who get up with the sun and work the land until it goes down,” he said. Of course, his parents also instilled a musical appreciation in him from an early age. Both were constantly singing, he said, and the old-school country and rock was often on in the

background. Now his children are expressing that coveted musical gene; his daughter is always singing and his son is a natural drummer, he said. Tickets are on sale now at

EMC news - Kars musician Trevor Alguire is returning to Bluesfest with a new album and a mission to connect with his audience. The Manotick-born singer-songwriter is gaining international notoriety for his country roots sound that harkens back to classic acts like Steve Earle, Tom Petty and Blue Rodeo. “If it’s country at all it’s nothing to do with today’s country,” Alguire said. “I’m kind of old-school.” Alguire’s fourth record, Till Sorrow Begins to Call, dropped last fall and perhaps shows a darker, sadder side of the 43-year-old – although Alguire insists it still has a hopeful message. In the end, Alguire said he can’t really control what ends up on paper. “It’s real stuff, they’re stories that are true and heartfelt and real,” he said. Having a couple of rough years between his third and fourth album – including a European tour on crutches – was bound to come out in his songs, he said. Besides, writing about real experiences is what separates quality music from what he calls “the fluff.” “There’s too much fluff out there. It’s just nursery rhymes with beats and one word repeated over and over,” he laughed. “It just makes me that much more determined to keep the real songwriting alive.” Alguire will perform July 11 in the Barney Danson Theatre inside the Canadian War Museum during the annual two-week Bluesfest at LeBreton Flats. He’s been there before – opening for Martha Wainwright five years ago and John Fogerty two seasons back – but he said he’s excited for this year’s intimate indoor audience. That’s because the best part of performing, for him, is making connections. “Whether it’s a festival with hundreds or thousands of people or a house show with 50, it’s about connecting,” he said. “If you can reach them with a song, it can be one moment you captivate somebody. It’s one person at a

We have created a dedicated team of international tax experts within the CRA who will help ensure the measures being implemented are working correctly. They will also be working closely with auditors to ensure that this money can be recovered quickly. As part of our Plan, we will also give the CRA the ability to stop, locate and reclaim lost tax money by granting them the authority to review large international wire transfers. This move will also help prevent money laundering and potential terrorist activity.

Furthermore, we have recently launched the ‘Stop International Tax Evasion Program’, which will enable the CRA to create a Crime Stoppers-type system, offering financial rewards for information that leads to the successful collection of taxes from an international tax cheats.

Fundraising needed to get instruments to Africa Michelle Nash

EMC news - The clarinets have been collected, the guitars have been tuned and now its time to ship more than 200 instruments to Africa this summer. Since February, Instruments for Africa has been collecting used and new instruments to donate to schools in Africa. The journey to collect enough instruments to outfit an orchestra or two in schools in Africa began with Old Ottawa South music teacher Todd Snelgrove. The idea springs from just one guitar. When on a trip to Africa last May, Snelgrove had brought along a guitar with the intention of giving it away. While searching for the ideal recipient for the instrument, he came across the Linda School in Livingstone, Zambia. A public high school with an enrollment of 1,200 stu-

dents from grades 10 to 12, its music program was operating without a single working instrument. Teachers at the school teach music theory and singing to about 300 students. Snelgrove donated a guitar to the school and since that moment, he became determined to gather more instruments for the cause. When he returned to Ottawa, Snelgrove began a larger mission to equip as many students as he could with instruments and soon instruments started coming out of the attic, basements and out from under beds, dusted off and donated to Snelgrove for the cause. With a little over 200 instruments, now the countdown is on to make sure more than 200 musical instruments get shipped to Africa this July. The shipping is aimed to take place on July 8 and is scheduled to arrive in Africa in early September where Snelgrove, his fiancé and music educator Susan Carlton will

meet the instruments there. After hearing about the organization, Carlton contacted Snelgrove to offer her help in developing a music curriculum for the teachers to teach. The cost of shipping and transportation to the small villages and towns is close to $6,500 - a sum of money that still needs to be fundraised. Snelgrove, Fiance and Carlton are covering their own ticket costs and thanks to the help of the Ambassador to Zambia, Bobby Mbunji Samakai and his staff, connections were made with the Zambia government’s Minister of Education who agreed to waive the taxes upon arrival – something Snelgrove said gave him a huge sigh of relief. “The costs would have been doubled if not for that,” he said. But the shipping costs are still needed and Snelgrove said anyone who is willing to help by donating much needed funds would become a


There are more than 200 musical instruments that will be shipped to Africa this July. huge help. The music teacher said he doesn’t care what people do to help, and in facts encourages people to be creative. Funds have already been coming in from a many different sources, including the Music Students Council of Longfields-Davidson Heights Secondary School who raised $135 through a music-day bake sale. Local music-mom Shauna Guilford collected $150 towards strings purchases, Snelgrove said many more people have made individual donations through the organization’s website.

There has even been a generous donation of a violin at the Ottawa Folklore Centre, stipulating that any proceeds from it’s sale go to Instruments for Africa. That generated $200 for the cause. “The amount of instruments coming in is amazing,” Snelgrove said. “They are coming in every day. I get emails every day about this cause. It’s really incredible. I never dreamed the project would be so successful. And the success of the project is what is making me worry the most, if I only had five instruments to send, it would be easy to ship them off, but with 200 it’s a

little more difficult.” Regardless of raising the money or not, Snelgrove said he will be shipping these instruments over, but it will be coming out of his pocket. Its something he wishes he could avoid, he admits, but would not let the fact the group hasn’t raised enough money stop the children from getting the much deserved instruments. Once in Zambia, Snelgrove said they will begin their trip to the schools and handing out the musical instruments. To donate to the cause or to find out more information visit

Centre helps build community, strength for young moms

EMC news - In 1989 Manotick resident Jennifer Littlemore, then a young teenager, had her life change quickly when she found out she was going to be a new mom at 18. As decisions about what to do and how to do it quickly became the only thing she thought about, the one thing she knew was she needed to finish high school. Littlemore, and her six month old little girl Holly entered the Youville Centre and her and her young daughter’s life changed forever. Twenty-five years later, Littlemore is a mother of three and an asset manager for the federal government. “Honestly, they helped shaped Holly’s personality, and I couldn’t have done it with out the centre,” Littlemore said. Littlemore graduated from the centre at 21; Holly was two. The Youville Centre was recently awarded the Growing up Great award at the United Way Ottawa’s Community Builder Awards for their continuous work at ensuring that young mothers have the opportunity to graduate high school. The centre started in 1985 by Sister Betty Ann Kinsella, with Kinsella and a small group of citizens providing education for 12 mothers and a day care facility for their infants. The organization became a non-profit in 1987. Now executive director Cindy Simpson said the school has 55 children in its day care facility and at any one time, 48 students completing their degree. Girls aged 15-21 can attend the school, with children as young as 18 months. While mothers are in school learning, their infants and toddlers are enrolled in the on-site

day care. “All you have to do is walk in this door and we will help you,” Simpson said. “Young people that have landed here due to life circumstances may have abandoned their hopes and dreams and it is our hope that when they come in these doors we give them back their dreams and really their life will be richer because of it.”

(Clients) may have abandoned their hopes and dreams and it is our hope that when they come in these doors we give them back their dreams. CINDY SIMPSON

There is a wait list to get into the centre, but enrolment is continuous throughout the year, and during the wait-period, students have the opportunity to enroll in an independent study program. Littlemore now lives in Manotick with her husband, daughters and son. The mother of three said that throughout her time at the centre what she remembers the most is the strong community support everyone at the school offered her. Holly, now 25 said she is incredibly proud of her mother. “I always looked up to my mom as a role model, and I remember being 20 and thinking I could never have finished high school and have a young child. She is really resilient.” Littlemore said the school instilled the

importance of having an education. “It wasn’t just a school, they encouraged continuing education, life skills, so many things I never thought I needed,” she said. Simpson said the centre is more than just offering the new moms a place to complete their high school diploma, it also offers parenting counceling, cooking and financial classes and classes for new dads as well. “We are a one-stop shop - we have a food bank, baby clothes, a family doctor who comes in one day a week, there are amazing services here that really support the young moms get their high school diploma,” Simpson said. “Compared to GED, we work at tying life skills, emphasize parenting, we are trying to ensure moms don’t feel isolated in parenting, there is lots of things that can make a new mom feel isolated,” Simpson said. “With a GED you are on your own, but here we are building community.” On June 21 the centre will celebrate another 22 girls graduating. “I truly believe it takes a community to raise a child, it was nice to know there are other resources out there to help,” Littlemore said.

Foodie camp offers new choices at agriculture museum Steph Willems

EMC news – With Ottawa kids counting down the days, hours and minutes until school lets out for the summer, many parents are no doubt scrambling to find ways to keep them occupied. Summer camps are an option, but registration dates can all too often pass by unno-

ticed. The Canada Agriculture and Food Museum is offering parents and kids a choice in day camps at a convenient location that still offers rural charm. The opening of the museum’s new Learning Centre earlier this spring has allowed programming to expand at the Experimental Farm site, with classrooms and workshops ready to accept kids of vary-

ing ages. In addition to the museum’s pre-existing camps – the Kinder Farm Camp, Fun at the Farm Camp, City Farm Camp and Junior Farmer Camp – kids aged seven to 10 can now try their hand at cooking with the new Sprouting Chefs Camp. The new summer camp, which runs over five days each week starting July 2, is designed to give

kids hands-on learning when it comes to growing food, as well as cooking it. “The idea is really to make cooking and food fun,” said Marie-Sophie Desaulniers, Director, Visitor Experience. “Kids will learn new-ish food types and be able to prepare their own snacks for the day.” The museum was recently renamed to put more emphasis on food production and the processes that take food from the field to the dinner table. The spacious Learning Centre allows patrons to put that expanded mandate into practice, while the surrounding fields, barns and stables provides the ‘before’ ingredients for the kitchen’s ‘after’. “The kids will learn to take care of a garden… and learn new recipes,” said Desaulniers. “They’re easy to make at home, and they can surprise their parents and siblings with it. We want them to learn where food comes from - to take a look at food that is holistic and make it fun.” Registration is accomplished online at A full listing of the camps,

Recycled flour bags served an indispensible role


oing into Renfrew to the grist mill with Mother was always a treat for me. I marvelled at how she bartered for a good price on the flour bags and how she always seemed to come out with a good bargain. The bags were piled willynilly in a heap in a corner and if we went early on a Saturday morning, before too many people beat us to it, the selection was at its best. Mother would take off one at a time, examine it closely, and either toss it aside, or put it in a pile by me. My job was to take the bag and fold it into a square so that it, with the others she picked, would fit nicely in the clothes hamper we brought from the farm. There would be no Saturday-night house party that week as my sister Audrey, Mother and I would spend the evening getting the bags ready for the Monday washing. There would be seams to rip out and those that needed it were cut open with the

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories scissors so that they would lay flat. Of course, they still carried the remnants of the flour they once held and by the time we had worked our way through the basket of bags, we were covered from head to toe. Even our hair was flecked with flour. But since it was Saturday night anyway, our weekly bath and head wash would take care of that. Before they could be made use of, the flour bags had to be washed twice. On Monday morning, they were washed separate from the rest of the laundry, and hung over the fence to dry. That washing was to get rid of the flour dust. The next stage was one I detested and I tried to keep my distance.

Mother bought big glass bottles of javel water from Briscoes General Store. Using a big square tub, the bags were soaked for the better part of a day in a mixture of water and javel. This was supposed to take out the bright printing that came with every flour bag, but sadly, it never quite did the job. It wasn’t unusual for me to wear bloomers made out of the bags, with “Pride of the Valley” still quite visible across my behind. Then the bags had their second washing. If it was a sunny day, they were spread out on the grass outside in the hope the hot rays of the sun would further diminish the vivid printing on every bag. Although everyone I knew in Northcote made use of

flour and sugar bags, older girls like my sister Audrey would never admit their underwear once came from Five Roses Flour. Happy was the day when Audrey was finally wearing store bought bloomers from Renfrew. But alas, as long as I went to the Northcote School, my lot in life was flour bag underwear! The best bags, once they had been washed, were laid out flat and the very best of them became sheets. It took four bags to make one sheet and I was off the farm before I found out that sheets didn’t come with a seam down the middle and one going cross wards! Working around the printed words was a challenge for Mother. She made sure that the best pinny aprons were free of print and pillow cases, sometimes after being bleached three or four times, were ready for embroidering by Audrey and me. I thought my sister was very clever indeed. She made beautiful cross-stitching, which I never did seem to be able to master.

French knots were another specialty of hers and “company” tea towels were festooned with lovely embroidery work, which I was quick to point out to whatever guest happened to be helping us red up the kitchen. The aprons Mother made out of flower bags were enormous. They had long tails to tie at the back, and when I had to wear one to churn for butter, it covered me from chin to my ankles, and lay in a heap around my feet on the floor. A coat hook at the back kitchen door held many aprons. These were always fresh as a daisy, ironed, and spanking white. As soon as Mother heard someone come in the lane, she ripped off the apron she was wearing, even if she had just put it on that morning, and reached for one off the hook. Heaven forbid that she should be caught with a spot on an apron in front of company, even if it was just another farmer coming to have a chat with Father. Rick rack braid went on

collars of flour-bag blouses to take away the look of where they had come from. The bags had many uses and the price was just right for those Depression years. And what was known many years later as recycling was just another way of surviving those days when there was no money for frivolities. Although just about everyone at the Northcote School wore flour-bag underwear, with a few exceptions like my little friend Joyce and my rival Marguirite, there were times when I wished there was a better way of getting rid of the dyed printing on just about every pair of bloomers I wore. The answer came one morning when I was dressing for school. I mistakenly put the bloomers on backward. The printing was still there, but it was less likely to be seen in a game of tag or ball if my skirt accidentally flew up. Ever after I went to the Northcote School with my flour-bag underwear on backwards and no one was the wiser.

Young cancer survivor performs personal show at Fringe Fest Michelle Nash

EMC news - Noah Spitzer battled a rare form of thyroid cancer when he was only 16 years old. But instead of seeking support from his friends, brother and sister and extended family, he kept it a secret. It wouldn’t be until five years later that in the form of a one-man show he shared his story. Spitzer’s play, My Second Smile, will be at the Ottawa Fringe Festival at the Arts Court Theatre from June 21 to 30. Spitzer grew up in Overbrook and when he initially had the surgery to help save his life, he refrained from telling anyone how he got the smile-shaped scar on his neck. His mother, Laura Zentner, said it was because her

son didn’t want his friends and younger siblings to worry about him. In his final year at Ryerson University, Spitzer wrote the one-man play and performed it for the first time in front of his friends and family. The play was then picked up by an independent theatre company, Theatre Bassaris as its 201213 season opener. Spitzer produces and stars in the play. “This is the most emotional show I’ve ever done as an actor,” Spitzer said. “I’ve already lived so many of the moments in the play. That said, it’s also the most fun I’ve had acting too.” Now 22 and back in Ottawa, Spitzer added he cannot wait to share his play with his hometown. “I think people can expect to laugh a lot and maybe cry a little,” he said. “I hope people are moved. I hope that I can

open up a dialogue about cancer in the Ottawa community.” Spitzer will donate 10 per cent of the proceeds to the Ottawa Hospital Foundation and will be hosting a talkback in the Fringe Courtyard on June 22 at 2 p.m. to discuss some of the themes and answer questions about the play. He said he hopes to raise awareness for adolescent cancer with his show. Tickets are $10 in advance or $12 at the door.

Noah Spitzer’s My Second Smile will play at the Ottawa Fringe Festival at the Arts Court Theatre this June 21 to 30. Spitzer kept his thyroid cancer a secret and has now turned his story into a play.

Thompson takes wait-and-see approach Continued from page 1

“My commitment is still there,” Thompson said. Concerns of residents who live on Blanchfield will hold the most

weight, but Thompson said he would also like the committee to consider information from the police, who will be closely monitoring the 31-kilometre ATV trail network. It might turn out that there are no

problems with ATVs on Blanchfield Road and residents might be fine with maintaining the arrangement, so the city shouldn’t “pre-dispose that it will be a failure,” Thompson said. The network includes 8.3 km on

wherever you make memories to treasure.

some roads, including Blanchfield, where there is no off-road road allowance the ATVs can use. Hamilton was also disappointed that a 20-km per hour speed limit discussed with the councillor was not included in the bylaw approved by city council on June 11. The pilot project will run until Nov. 30, 2015. Thompson said the speed limit will be 20 km per hour and signs will be posted, but he admitted that leaving it out of the bylaw “may have been an oversight.” Thompson said he would work to change that speed limit to ensure police can enforce it. The concerns of Blanchfield residents may not be an issue for too much longer if the Nation Valley ATV Club can secure agreements with property owners to access their land as a bypass of Blanchfield Road,

Thompson said. Work is already underway to secure that alternate route, he said. The idea is to create a trail “backbone,” which would hopefully be supplemented by trails through private property over time through agreements with owners, said Kris Gough, a member of the ATV club who has taken the lead on the project. City council also approved a change in the start time that ATVs would be allowed to use the trail. Instead of hitting the trails 30 minutes before sunrise, riders will have to wait until 8 a.m. The OsgoodeCarleton Snowmobile Club will also be allowed to use the trail network in the winter months. Hamilton said the details of this pilot project are important because it is the first trail network of its kind in the City of Ottawa and the process and rules for the Osgoode network will set the stage for other trails in the city’s rural areas.

Beginning June 27, 2013, the Ottawa Police Service (OPS) will collect the observational recordings of the race of drivers involved in traffic stops for a two-year period. Drivers will not be asked to identify their race. The focus of the project is officer perception of driver race. Passengers are not included in the study.

BOOK YOUR TOUR TODAY. Lunch is on us!

This project is the result of an agreement between the Ottawa Police Services Board and the Ontario Human Rights Commission (OHRC). The OHRC and the OPS believe that race-based data collection is important in ensuring bias-free policing services. The data will be provided to the OHRC at the end of the two-year collection period. It will be limited to information required for analysis. The data will not include any personal identifiers of drivers. The project will be the largest of its kind in Canada.

Strawberry breakfast parfaits a great way to start the day EMC lifestyle - This is an easy summer entertaining brunch idea. The parfaits can be made ahead to allow for relaxed and easy entertaining. Wheat berries are a true whole grain: they are loaded with nutrients and add a slight crunch and subtle nutty flavour to the parfait. Layers of luscious, creamy whipped ricotta, chewy wheat berries, slices of strawberries and maple syrup for sweetness will have everyone endlessly dipping their spoons and clanking the bottom for more. Preparation time: 15 minutes. Standing time: 12 hours. Cooking time: 90 minutes. Serves eight. INGREDIENTS

• 250 ml (1 cup) wheat berries • 25 ml (2 tbsp) packed golden brown sugar • 2 cinnamon sticks, broken in half • 2 ml (1/2 tsp) salt

• 475 g (16.75 oz) traditional ricotta cheese • 175 ml (3/4 cup) maple syrup • 1 vanilla bean, split in half lengthwise • 1 l (4 cups) thinly sliced strawberries • 125 ml (1/2 cup) slivered almonds, toasted PREPARATION

Rinse the wheat berries in a colander then drain and set aside. In medium saucepan, whisk together the sugar, one litre (four cups) of water, the cinnamon sticks and salt. Add the wheat berries to the saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the wheat berries are tender, or about 90 minutes. When finished, drain any liquid and discard the cinnamon sticks. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to three days; tuck in cinnamon

he has seen the audience grow in numbers. It has also become more diverse and younger. Part of the reason for that, he said, was subsidized student passes available at the city’s two universities and Algonquin College. “We already have agreements with the University of Ottawa and Algonquin,” Monahan said. “We are just finalizing with Carleton.” Acts like Vampire Weekend, Amos the Transparent, The Sheepdogs and the Carolina Chocolate Drops are also aimed at bringing in a younger crowd. Names like Neil Young, Pattie Smith and Emmylou Harris help the festival stick to its folk roots. The five-day event will kick off at Hog’s Back on Sept. 4 and close on Sept. 8 – a little bit later than its been held in the past, but Monahan said he isn’t worried about the weather. “One of the rainiest festi-

vals was when it was held in the third week of August,” he said. “Obviously you run a risk when its an outdoor festival but we had a look at the forecast and things are pretty similar weather-wise in the first couple of weeks in September.” Monahan added the new timing will coincide with orientation at the universities, ensuring students will be in town to enjoy the festivities. Passes went on sale June 12 at 10 a.m. for the early bird price of $128.50 for a five-day, adult transferrable wristband. Youth wristbands are nontransferrable and cost $99. The early bird price ended on June 14 at midnight, at which point adult wristbands were $148.50 and youth ones were $119. Like Bluesfest, Folk Festival passes will come in the form of radio frequency identification tag (RFID) wristbands that are transferrable and people can share.

Habitat for Humanity NCR marks 20th anniversary


Board members and volunteers from Habitat for Humanity-National Capital Region celebrated 20 years of building and renovating affordable living spaces for families at their annual general meeting on June 10. From left, Habitat NCR board president Johannes Ziebarth, CEO Donna Hicks and Habitat for Humanity Canada CEO and president Kevin Marshman. “We like what we do,” said Hicks, who normally works14-hour days. With much talk surrounding the growing need for affordable housing in recent years, Habitat NCR stands alone as a housing provider in allowing families to own their own

home while retaining the equity after payout – something that can greatly benefit adults and seniors. “Many of our families have low-paying jobs with no pension plan,” said Hicks. “This house can become part of their long-term financial planning.”

The need for affordable housing isn’t relegated to urban areas. Habitat NCR has seen increasing demand from communities outside the city, recently building three new homes in Carleton Place and renovating another in Kemptville. “When we started looking at some of these outlying communities, we didn’t know how bad the need was for affordable housing,” said Hicks. “We’re seeing more and more requests from outlying communities.” Hicks said she is working on a gift of land in Arnprior, a possible gift in Richmond, and is looking forward to a planned project in Perth. Large projects like new

home builds aren’t the only thing Habitat NCR does to benefit the community; increasingly they are asked to modify existing homes in order to allow occupants (often with mobility issues) to continue living there. Under its Renew It program, Habitat will perform repairs or modifications – like adding a wheelchair ramp, a porch or fixing a roof – to keep homes livable. While Habitat NCR is growing and looking to the future, Hicks said much more work is needed to serve the community’s needs. “It’s not enough,” said Hicks. “We need to acquire more land, raise more money, and look at all the different ways there are to house people.”

EMC news – They started out small, but in the past two decades Habitat for Humanity-National Capital Region has steadily grown its presence and its impact on low-income families in Ottawa. The organization celebrated 20 years of challenges and successes during its annual general meeting and volunteer appreciation event, held on June 10. Formed 1993, the Ottawaarea chapter of the organization (which started in Georgia in 1976) built their first Habitat home on Roman Avenue in 1994, with two others on Monique Street shortly thereafter. To date, Habitat for Humanity-NCR has constructed 40 homes and renovated eight others with the help of volunteers and donated funds and materials. Two ReStore locations have also opened (1997 and 2007) in order to collect and distribute those materials. Habitat NCR is currently getting started on three new homes in Orleans. “The organization has con-

tinued to grow,” said Habitat NCR CEO Donna Hicks. “That speaks volumes to the kind of leadership from our board of directors and the hard work from our staff and volunteers.” Habitat NCR is run by a 15member volunteer board of directors, and relies on the help of up to 3,000 volunteers of all capacities over the course of a year, said Hicks. Each home build, she added, requires 380 volunteer slots to accomplish. At eight years of service, Hicks is the longest-serving CEO in the Habitat system, which is composed of 67 affiliates in Canada and has a presence in 100 countries worldwide. Because it has to collect, handle and distribute funds, find land, collect materials as well as manage the no-interest mortgages issued to families buying Habitat homes, the organization has to function as a bank, mortgage-lender, and builder. While that responsibility results in a huge workload, the satisfaction of seeing families in need move into their own home makes up for it.

App winners honoured

Sandy Hill resident David Rust-Smith was the big winner in the city’s Apps4Ottawa contest this year. He used the city’s data stream listing the locations of its automatic external defibrillators (AEDs) around Ottawa to create a mobile website that also allows users to add locations of other life-saving AEDs, which enable people to assist someone in cardiac arrest. Rust-Smith won both the award for data analysis and visualization, as well as the users choice Windows 8 award, netting him a total of $4,000 in prize money. Also pictured are Coun. Tim Tierney, chairman of the information technology subcommittee, left; deputy city manager Nancy Schepers, second from right; and Donna Gray, director of Service Ottawa.


Ahhh puppy love!





big adventures! Brownie would be a great cottage dog as he loves to play in the water, and would never miss the opportunity to make new friends! Brownie would rather not be cooped up inside all day. In addition to lots of daily exercise, he would love a bit of space, and

maybe even a yard to play in! Brownie would love to spend lots of time with you, and needs lots of exercise and mental stimulation to keep him busy. Leash walks are great but he will also need to run, so trips to the dog park are encouraged! Brownie will need a confident and experienced owner, with your guidance and dedication he will be a wonderful friend. Parker (A152884) is a three-year-old, neutered male, Domestic Longhair cat who loves to play. He was brought to the shelter as a stray on January 21, and is looking for his forever home. Parker gets along with the quieter children who visit him at the shelter, and wouldn’t mind living with them. Parker is laid-back and is looking for a family that will give him some alone time, and a nice sunny spot to perch in, from which he can watch the world fly by!

Brownie Brownie (A154083) is a 10-month-old, neutered male, tan Labrador Retriever and Mastiff mix dog with the most beautiful puppy-dog eyes that will make your heart melt. He was brought to the shelter as a stray on March 21, and is patiently waiting for a family who will take him on

Mia (4months) and Walter (7 1/2 yrs) first came to meet two months ago. It was love at first sight. Their first time meeting, Walter brought Mia every single toy he had. Mia preferred chewing on Walters face. In two months they’ve enjoyed bone’s together, nap times cuddled up, long afternoon strolls, and a slew of tug o’ war matches. These two have a bond that will last a life time of chasing squirrels.

Pet Adoptions

It’s that time of year when weekend getaways are appealing, and summer vacation time is just around the corner. The OHS receives a higher number of dogs surrendered or abandoned as strays in the summer months because their owners cannot find care for the canines during their vacation. But why not pick a getaway that’s fun for the whole family, furry members and all? Camping with your canines can be a lot of fun, and a learning experience for everyone involved. Dogs discover interesting things you might otherwise overlook, and a dog is always thrilled with new smells and sites. You may even see new characteristics in your dog when you are camping; they may walk a little faster, play a little happier, and show you other Time to make differentaaspects of their character you may not see day-to-day. Don’t grooming forget, appointment all these new smells and sites can be very exciting for a dog, and you have to be able to restrain your canine companion in the presence of distractions, such as deer, squirrels and other critters, and also be responsible enough to prevent the dog from being a nuisance

to other campers or animals. If you are going to camp with a dog (or dogs), it is important that the dog is well-behaved around other people (both adults and children) and animals. Your dog will need to understand when play time is over and how to be quiet. You may want to consider taking the dog to basic training which will help both you and the dog in the new environment – it will make you a better, more responsive dog owner, and it will help you keep your canine companion comfortable in the new place. You know your dog better than anyone. You know what may or will provoke a defensive reaction, and you need to know the steps to take to appropriately deal with any situation that may arise. Make sure your dog is upto-date on vaccinations because dogs can encounter unvaccinated animals while camping. Dog licenses should also be current, and a microchip and identification tags up-to-date. A second set of tags with your cell phone number (or perhaps the number of the cottage or the campsite you will be staying) may be a good idea.

This is a good time to overhaul your approach to fitness, Aries. If you have been thinking about scheduling a physical or getting a gym membership, do so this week. Taurus, you may have a difficult time taking sides when friends ask for your help in settling a dispute. Let your friends know you prefer to stay out of the squabble. Gemini, you are in need of some down time, so plan a weekend jaunt or a brief vacation to relax and recharge your batteries this week. It would normally be quite an effort to pull the wool over your eyes, Cancer. However, in the next few days you will be so distracted with other things that fooling you is possible. Leo, take a few days to act foolish, throw caution to the wind and have a good time. If you don’t, there may not be another such opportunity anytime soon. Virgo, the only way to get through a bumpy week is to keep your head down and your focus intense. Concentrate on the tasks at hand, and the week will be over before you know it.

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!

Libra, sometimes practicality gets in the way of your imagination. Though this can sometimes be stifling, you have to find a balance between whimsy and reality. No one can put your plan into action better than you, Scorpio. Stop making excuses and really get started this week. Don’t expect immediate results. Sagittarius, you may not feel that something you did is funny, but others are bowled over with laughter. Play along so you don’t come across as a spoil sport. Expect your schedule to become quite hectic in the next few days, Capricorn. You may want to tie up any loose ends now and use any free time to rest. Aquarius, a burst of energy has you flying through all of those little projects that you have been putting off. Once you are done, you may have to create a new list. Pisces, though you feel like you have just been going through the motions, others are far more impressed than you think.
