News – The watchful eyes of residents may once again monitor Manotick streets as the community association considers reviving the village’s neighbourhood watch program. The Manotick Village and Community Association has directed a new committee to investigate how to bring the program back to Manotick, after long-time co-ordinator Michael Hall quit last fall. The controversy began last August when Manotick’s community police centre welcomed a new community police officer, Const. Arun Daniels, to replace the outgoing Const. Peter Jeon. Jeon had maintained an ongoing flow of detailed information to Hall and his watch team, which they forwarded to the community. These reports gave detailed information about collisions, break-ins and other crimes throughout the village, including how they happened and how to avoid them in the future. But when Daniels took over, the police service realized that Manotick was getting a lot of information it shouldn’t. Jeon’s level of detail was no longer allowed, Daniels said, because of privacy and investigation concerns. “There are issues regarding privacy and consistency across the city in terms of what we’re doing,” Daniels said. “Manotick was the only village receiving all that information.”

He said giving out too many details – such as what a suspect was wearing, or what car they were driving – could undermine an ongoing investigation. Suspects can get rid of that evidence, he said, or simply be tipped off that police are looking for them. In terms of privacy, Daniels said specific addresses and other details can be particularly damaging in a small town. “We’ve got to make sure we’re not identifying victims,” he said. “In small communities people know each other. The last thing I want is for someone to say, ‘I would report this but I don’t want people to know about it.’” Those reasons for an information claw back weren’t enough for Hall, who left the neighbourhood watch post after 10 years on the grounds that there wasn’t enough information to fill his newsletter. “Unfortunately, our new community constable, Arun Daniels, has not got the time nor direction from his superiors to deliver the information that we need to continue the neighbourhood watch,” Hall wrote on the program website. “He does provide rudimentary information on a few categories of crime, but these add up to one or two events a month and represent a tiny fraction of the crime facing our community.” The website says the watch has been shut down, and will not be restarted as it was. That’s where the community association comes in.

Greely leaders discuss rural planning Emma Jackson

News – Greely entrepreneurs got an in-depth look at rural planning from an insider on June 19. The Greely Business Association hosted its second breakfast meeting at the Rideau Carleton Raceway, where rural planner Derrick Moodie discussed rural development planning from the city’s perspective.

His presentation gave a run-down of the city’s current policies and its efforts to update some of those policies as part of the Official Plan review. In Greely, there are several challenges associated with “planning on the fringe,” Moodie said, including issues around servicing, transportation and striking a balance between commercial development, agriculture and protecting the environment.

Traffic biggest concern for Greely businesses Continued form the front

the premises. In areas zoned rural and agricultural, home-based businesses are allowed up to 150 square metres of space plus 100 square metres of outdoor storage. They can have three employees and several extra licensed businesses are allowed, including snow plow contractors, antique dealers and storage for vehicles and boats.

For all businesses, expansion in the rural areas can be a headache, especially after amalgamation when rules may be different than when the business was established. “We see people who have been operating for many, many years fully expecting to be compliant, and they aren’t and never have been,” Moodie said. Expansion can also get expensive if the business owner is planning to build a commercial building larger than 200 square metres in size, which requires a site plan and impact studies. “The process is very much the same if it’s 200 square metres or 5,000 square metres,” Moodie said. For businesses right on the line, Moodie said the city often recommends they reduce their project to less than 200 square metres to avoid the cost and process. “Our recommendation is to scale it back a little and ex-

pand later on.” OFFICIAL PLAN

Moodie said one of the most significant shifts in the city’s official plan review is in rural planning. Villages are now being categorized as large, medium and small, and growth is primarily being directed to the three largest villages: Greely, Manotick and Richmond. “These are going to be our centres of commerce and they may grow,” Moodie said. He said the city recognizes that such a plan may require sewer and water services in some villages, and the city is in the process of determining how much it would cost to service the city’s more substantial villages. Several business owners at the meeting said traffic concerns are a major hindrance to commercial development.



A major component of the rural economy is home-based businesses, and Moodie explained some of the recent changes the city has made to its home-based business rules in the rural areas. “We often see home-based businesses trying to operate in secret, and the best way to get them out of the closet is to let

them know what the rules are and what they’re allowed to do,” Moodie said. For residential entrepreneurs living in village zones, business owners are allowed to use up to 45 per cent of their dwelling’s gross floor area (up to 75 square metres) for work purposes. Village home-based businesses are also allowed two employees who don’t live on

“What we’ve found since amalgamation is that urban influence dominates (city council),” said Dan Anderson, a prominent residential and commercial developer in Greely. Moodie agreed to an extent, acknowledging that the lightrail transit project in urban Ottawa has dominated transportation conversations and budgets. But he added that the vast majority of rural residents work in the city, which means urban infrastructure directly benefits them as well. “The rural community has to get downtown. Some of the developments we’re making in the urban area are for the rural residents,” he said. He also noted that a long list of major roads are due to be rebuilt or repaved in the Greely area this year and next. The Greely Business Association will host its next breakfast on Wednesday, Sept. 18 on the topic of strategic planning. Breakfast meetings are held at the Rideau Carleton Raceway beginning at 7:30 a.m.

Courtney Flynn, a rural outreach worker with the Nepean, Rideau and Osgoode Community Resource Centre, adds clouds to a growing “community garden” as part of a community conversation exercise at St. James Anglican Church in Manotick on June 25.

Community conversation to grow garden of services News – Inch by inch, row by row, Manotick residents want their village to grow. That was the message at a “community conversation” event hosted by the Nepean, Rideau and Osgoode Community Resource Centre on June 25. Residents gathered at St. James Anglican Church to discuss what’s working and what’s not in the village. The three event leaders – Courtney Flynn and Kyle Kearnan from NROCRC and Marisa Moher from the South Nepean Community Health Centre – said they were there to understand the village’s needs on a broad scale. Paper flowers, snails, clouds and watering cans were scattered across the work tables for residents to identify problems, solutions, assets and long-term plans for the village. These comments were pasted periodically to a large garden mural on the wall, representing a growing community with all elements coming together to produce a healthy, vibrant place to live. Conversation at the three large tables quickly turned to youth issues, including the ongoing prescription drug abuse problem in the village and surrounding area. Many agreed this was partly due to a lack of recreational activities - and few transportation options to get to activities elsewhere - for teens. Almost everyone agreed that a regular youth drop-in centre, similar to the Osgoode

Youth Association in nearby Osgoode, would give kids a constructive place to hang out. The community centre and the legion hall basement were both tagged as potential youth hotspots. But the lack of services in Manotick extends to all demographics and across all areas of need. Rev. Ross Hammond, who leads the Anglican congregation in Manotick, said family services like counselling, family planning and other resources are missing from the village – and having to travel downtown for help can be discouraging. “Folks really struggle,” Hammond told the others around his table. “There’s a whole range (of issues not addressed), from ‘I’ve got twins and I’m dead on my feet’ to ‘We’re in crisis and we think our child has a serious mental illness.’ ” Moher told Hammond that several YouthNet programs are coming to the village next year and that a comprehensive

resource guide for the Rideau-Goulbourn area is almost complete. Lack of recreation activities for the wider community also came up at several tables, along with transportation constraints, lack of affordable housing for seniors and the need for emphasis on community-run activities. But the meeting didn’t just focus on what’s missing. Residents also hailed the village’s service clubs, such as the legion, Kiwanis and Lions, for their hard work and volunteerism. “We have a lot of events and the reason is the service clubs provide the core of the volunteering,” said Klaus Beltzner, president of the Manotick Village and Community Association. A strong presence from the Manotick BIA was also considered a big factor in organizing so many community events throughout the year. For residents unable to attend the event, comments can be forwarded to Flynn at

Pet rats squeak into Catelli Castle Manotick family publishes second book for disability awareness Emma Jackson

News – When you pack an emergency kit, do you include your two pet rats? If you’re Tommy and Melanie Glatzmayer you do. The Manotick siblings are once again the adventurous stars of a self-published book to raise awareness about Cornelia de Lange syndrome and other disabilities. Their mother, Nathalie Wendling, has written a sequel to Tommy’s brainchild, Melanie and Tommy Have Two Pet Rats and One Syndrome, which was published when he was in Grade 2. He wrote it to help his sister who suffers from CdLS, and to teach other kids about her syndrome. The family has spent several years travelling across the country with rats in tow to bring their story of love and acceptance to as

many schoolchildren as possible. In this second adventure, the story expands its focus from just CdLS and encourages kids to accept everyone as they are, even if they look different. Wendling writes in her book, “Sometimes people with a syndrome look different. Not everyone with a syndrome looks different. Not everyone who looks different has a syndrome.” Along with Melanie, the book includes Manotick student Zachary, who has Treacher-Collins syndrome, and former Manotick student Alex, who has a large scar on his jaw from a surgery to remove a tumour. “Since we live in a small village, it’s nice to let people get to know these kids who look different, so people can smile at them when they see them,” Wendling said. In the new story, Tommy, Melanie and their rats head off to Catelli Castle to search for the lost jewels of Princess Zoe. After a few brushes with crazy cats, a bully and a raging fire, they recover the jewels and, like all good archaeologists, give it to a museum for safekeeping. Along the way, loyal rat friends Chewy and Jay Bee help the sibling team out of a few squeakers.

Near the end, Zachary is featured as Princess Zoe’s generous brother. A whole page is dedicated to his syndrome and his ability to use sign language to communicate. It includes pictures of alphabet and number signs for kids to practice. Alex is also featured at the end of the book, with a message that everyone deserves respect – and a smile. The new book will be launched at the annual Taste of Manotick event on Aug. 17 in front of Hair Ink salon. From 4 to 10 p.m., visitors can buy a signed copy of the book and meet the rats who have become celebrities in their own right. Visit for more information.


Tommy and Melanie Glatzmayer welcome 6,500 copies of their new book on June 24. The new story, written by their mother Nathalie Wendling, is a sequel to the picture book Tommy wrote several years ago to help his classmates understand Melanie’s rare disability, Cornelia de Lange Syndrome.

Vibrant village Artist Jen Wyngaarden poses with her recently completed mural, which has been installed on the concrete bridge over Cassidy drain on Victoria Street in Metcalfe. The Metcalfe Community Association commissioned her to bring her drawings to life on the village’s busy main street last summer after she won a community design contest. Wyngaarden said it took her about 50 hours to complete the four-panel mural, which is painted on wooden boards and focuses on the historical and agricultural culture of Metcalfe. She will soon begin another four panels for the other side of the street. The second mural is expected to be installed next spring. Emma Jackson/Metroland

Watch program depends on resources, volunteer interest President Klaus Beltzner said he believes the neighbourhood watch program is something his association is willing to run, if volunteer, time and information resources support it. While the information output would be different than residents are used to – Jeon wrote full narrative reports – Beltzner said everything the watch program needs can be found on the city’s public crime map website. All they would do, he said, is compile it. “The question is, how do we launch a new program that will actually work, that will achieve some objectives that have measurable outputs? This is what the board is struggling with,” Beltzner said. His hope is that interested neighbourhoods within the village will have volunteers come forward to compile crime information for small groups of streets. That’s the best way to do it, Daniels agreed. “It doesn’t have to be just one (neighbourhood watch),” Daniels said. “Ideally we’d like to see several so it doesn’t come down to just one person.

That’s not sustainable.” Board member Jane Dormon has volunteered to chair the new committee, which will decide how best to go forward. “Our purpose right now is to do a little quick survey ... and then consult the membership to see if they see the value in the neighbourhood watch,” Dormon said. “One of the lessons I’ve learned listening to people involved in neighbourhood watch in Manotick and other places is it’s only as good as the people willing to pitch in.”

She is looking for feedback via email for several weeks before deciding on a plan. “If I get a resounding yawn from the members, the board can’t justify the resources for it,” she said, adding that a strong positive response would likely lead to a public information meeting. “In two weeks time we should have a sense of whether we’re going to go forward or explore other avenues.” Send comments to

she said. Apart from the show, kids can enjoy cowboy-themed crafts, sports and campfire stories. Greely Idol singer Savannah Elder will also lead the campers in rousing western music, along with Dans and the church’s team of back-up singers. “She’s a local girl about 8 or 9 with a country voice,” Dans said. “She’s a June Carter imitator; she’s awesome.” The camp costs only $10 for the entire week and offers activities between 9:30 a.m. and noon each weekday. A “moms’ room” is available for parents who want to stay with their kids. Throughout the week parents will be working on a simple quilt to be given to a cancer patient in the area, as part of the Victoria’s Quilts program. On Friday the mothers can enjoy a spa day. The camp is open to people of all backgrounds, Dans said, and operates as a community camp first and foremost – especially for kids who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford a day camp. But it is a church, after all, and Dans said Bible stories and Christian lessons certainly play a part in the programming. Dans said the Western theme also offers a perfect opportunity to teach campers about compassion and caring for others by reaching out to those affected by flooding in Alberta. “We’ll put a big card together and send it to the mayor to help encourage the people of Calgary,” she said, adding that the exercise will also teach kids about being thankful for what we have. The camp has attracted more than 300 kids in the past, although numbers have been lower the past few years as the church built a new facility and hosted its camp at a school in Metcalfe. Dans hopes to rebuild their attendance this year. To register in advance visit Walk-ins are also welcome on July 8.

Community – Let your taste buds roam the Ottawa Valley this July at Watson’s Mill’s new and improved beer tasting event. Billed “Not Your Father’s Labatt 50,” the event on Friday, July 12 will feature beer from 10 specialty breweries from Ottawa and across the province. Watson’s Mill has hosted beer tasting events in the past, but this year guests can zero in on craft beers that mostly come from the surrounding area. Brews from Hogsback, Kichesippi, Mad Hatter, Mill Street and Turtle Island breweries will represent urban Ottawa while Cassel Brewery will represent the east and Barley Days will bring a taste of Picton. Nickel Brook brewery will come in from Burlington. Turtle Island will launch its brewery at the event, meaning guests will be the first to try Ottawa’s newest craft beer. “This is another great thing that’s happening at the event and its fun for us to share that with the Manotick community and other local breweries,” said mill manager Isabelle Geoffrion. “We’re just thrilled to be doing that.” Turtle Island founder J.P. Fournier has been working towards opening a brew pub for about three years, he said, after he started brewing his own beer at home about four years ago. He didn’t even like beer at the time, and hadn’t consumed it for about a decade, he said. But then a friend introduced him to a few local craft brews, and he was hooked. “I’m a little bit obsessed when I get passionate about something,” Fournier said. “I want to do it on as big of a scale as I can.” He began brewing at home, and founded the Ottawa Beer Tap Society which worked with local restaurants to pair home-brewed beer with gourmet food. Last summer Fournier organized the first annual National Capital Craft Beer Week, including a twoday festival outside city hall that attracted 6,500 people. In February he partnered with Winterlude to create WinterBrewed – an outdoor event that attracted 12,000 to drink cold beer in -20C weather. Now Fournier hopes his brewery can share his taste for excitement as he launches specialty craft brews that

with the Swing Bridge Band providing live music. “It changes it up a little bit from previous years when it was just taste the beers and move along,” said organizer Alex Smaridge. “It’s going to be a little more upscale than it has been in the past.” From 7 to 10 p.m., Indulge Kitchens catering company will provide beer-friendly appetizers and hors d’oeuvres, including gourmet sliders. Guests will vote for their favourite beer, and the winning brewery will be invited to return for a more intimate pairing event with Indulge Kitchens later this summer. A brewers’ corner is another new addition this year, with a brewmaster on hand to answer any questions about beer types and the beer-making process. “I’m really very excited for this one,” Smaridge said. Tickets are $30 and include five tasting tickets. Extra tasting tickets are available for sale. For more information call 613692-6455. Watson’s Mill is located at 5525 Dickinson St., Manotick.

are far from normal. “The goal is to share our sense of adventure and passion for exceptional craft beer,” he said. At the Watson’s Mill event, Fournier and his team will launch a dark honey brown beer as well as a single-malt, single-hop cherry ale. While he’ll technically be surrounded by his steepest competition, Fournier said he thinks a craft beer event is the perfect launch pad. “We sort of see the other brews as being our brethren,” he said. “With the personality of the industry I firmly believe it will be about supporting each other.” Of course, his interest in growing Ottawa’s craft beer industry in general pairs perfectly with what Watson’s Mill is trying to accomplish. “I love that it’s in Manotick,” he said. “If the attention we’re going to get for a launch can help that event grow as well I’m ecstatic about that.” And growing it is. In previous years, the event has been relatively simple in scope. But this year the mill has added catered pairings and a chance to make it a true night out

Local acts make Bluesfest great


ttawa is spoiled for festivals each summer. Dragon Boats hit the waters of Mooney’s Bay. Jazz drifts through down-

town. Countless other events draw people each weekend, with Canada Day leading the way. On LeBreton Flats, blues – and an amalgam of other sounds – draws thousands of Ottawans and visitors to this city. We’re lucky to live in a city that hosts the second largest blues festival in North America (Chicago holds top spot). While the headline acts at Bluesfest garner the most attention, it’s local acts that make up the majority of the entertainment. They may play earlier in the day than B.B. King or the Tragically Hip, but every one of the local musicians is really what makes Bluesfest work. Without the input of Ottawa artists, Bluesfest couldn’t fill multiple stages for the festival’s 10 days. The payoffs from this commitment to the local community are immeasurable. Not only does Ottawa get an economic boost as thousands of visitors arrive to take in the shows, the

local musicians get a chance to share their material with large crowds of music fans. For the Ottawa entertainers, there’s the added bonus of getting to open a stage for national and international stars they might never have the chance to meet at any other time. The RBC Ottawa Bluesfest always draws a few grumbles for straying from its blues roots, but the crowds that arrive each year suggest the lineups meet with mass approval. The growing list of genres that can be heard each year also means more and more local acts can try to snag an invitation to play. And every note – in some way – can be traced back to the blues, because it’s the root of almost every North American musical style. And because Bluesfest draws such large crowds, ticket prices can often be much more affordable than an arena show by one headlining act. Once you have a ticket for that famous act, you’re also able to arrive earlier or stay later to take in everything the music fest has to offer. Including all those local acts. If you’ve never spent a lazy Saturday or Sunday wandering between six musical stages, taking in unknown acts and finding real gems, you’ve been missing out. Grab your lawn chair and sunscreen. And have fun right here in Ottawa.


We’ll miss having our own man in Toronto


oo bad Dalton McGuinty had to leave politics in such an awkward way because he actually was a pretty good premier until things started to go a bit weird toward the end. It would be an exaggeration to say he will be impossible to replace, because his replacement seems to be doing all right so far. But in one respect, Kathleen Wynne cannot replace McGuinty. She is not from Ottawa. McGuinty is. That meant that for the 10 years McGuinty was premier we had a premier who knew that Ottawa existed. Knowing that Ottawa exists is not as easy as you might think. The government of Ontario resides in Toronto and Toronto is a needy place. Amplified by Toronto’s rather noisy media, the city’s needs are all too evident. To remember that Ottawa exists, it helps to be from here and come back on weekends. On those visits, a premier can leave behind Toronto’s traffic, its urban sprawl, its overcrowded schools and understaffed hospitals and notice our traffic, our urban sprawl, our overcrowded schools and our understaffed hospitals. No matter what is going on in the 416, the premier will be reminded of the Queensway,

and it began to appear that the Rideau Carleton Raceway might in fact survive. But being from Toronto, Wynne gets overexposed to all that Toronto stuff. Lately she has been musing about improving the provincial government’s relationship with the city. “I’ve prided myself and ourselves on being able to rebuild that relationship,� Wynne said, as reported by the Globe and Mail. “It pains me that it’s not as good as it maybe has been, and I hope that we’ll be able to rebuild those relationships.� This can hardly be seen as good news. Toronto’s municipal leadership being what it is, rebuilding those relationships is going to take most of the time the premier has available. It is also going to take a lot of money, given the rather expensive list of things Toronto needs – such as subways. And while that is going on, the rebuilding process with Toronto, what happens to Carling Avenue and the Queensway and OC Transpo? Not to mention light rail, which it sometimes seems we will never get. Would it help if Ottawa had a more colourful mayor? Not meaning any disrespect to Jim Watson, but his demeanour does not demand attention, it does not cry out to the provincial government that if Ottawa does not get what

it wants he will hold his breath until it does. Other Ontario cities have mayors that. So maybe Watson needs to develop a few rough edges, become colourful, learn how not to keep his temper in check. As soon as he does that, he becomes a problem and a problem needs to be solved. Right now, Watson is not a problem for Queen’s Park. That was OK when an Ottawa guy was premier. But now, Watson not being a problem means Ottawa is not a priority. Can Jim Watson learn how to become a problem? Maybe. You should never underestimate a politician.

NCC gives up bridge fight Federal agency won’t spend more money to study new interprovincial crossing Laura Mueller

News – The National Capital Commission has pulled the plug on a proposed new bridge to Gatineau after spending six years and almost $7 million studying it. NCC chairman Russell Mills made the announcement at a June 27 board meeting, 10 days after the provincial government announced it would not support a bridge at the preferred location – Kettle Island – nor the other top two locations.

“It is the province that made the decision to pull the plug,” Mills said. He said the NCC would have given up on the study earlier if it had been clear that the province never intended to support any of the top three routes that have been identified since 2009. The NCC and ministries of transportation for Ontario and Quebec had planned to jointly spend a total of $1.6 million dollars to finish up the study in the next month. The NCC’s half-million portion doesn’t represent significant savings,

Mills said. Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury said the NCC stepping back further bolsters the Ministry of Transportation’s responsibility to address the issue of transport trucks travelling through his ward en route to Gatineau. “It puts the pressure back onto the MTO and the province,” he said. “It’s clear now that the MTO needs to find a way to connect the 417 to the 400-series highway on the Quebec side, which is the 50.” Fleury said he sees a “political willingness” to address the truck issue now that the province has flatly rejected a bridge. The local councillor requested a meeting with Transportation Minister Glenn Murray to discuss how the province plans to solve the truck issue. “The ball is in their court,”

he said. On June 17, Murray announced that Ontario will not provide funding for a bridge proposal that would cross at Kettle Island and make use of the Aviation Parkway to connect bridge traffic with Highway 417. Murray said the province “listened very carefully” to the public. He said the Liberal caucus, including local MPP’s Madeleine Meilleur and Phil McNeely, were unanimous in turning down any involvement with the Kettle Island plan. Meilleur called the provincial decision a victory for residents. “My thanks go out to the community,” she said. “You were all there at every meeting.” Residents were concerned about the additional traffic the bridge would generate on the

Airport Parkway, which representatives from the Montfort Hospital worried would slow down ambulances. Rideau-Rockcliffe Coun. Peter Clark represents residents in Manor Park who would have been most affected by a new bridge at Kettle Island. He said the NCC’s announcement shows that “reality is setting in.” As far as the NCC’s role in solving the truck issue in the future, Fleury said “we’ll see.” Mills was not receptive to discussing the possibility of a tunnel to get trucks out of Ottawa’s core.

“Unfortunately, there is no solution to the truck problem without a bridge,” Mills said. “To us now, it is unacceptable.” The NCC considered a tunnel at the very beginning of the interprovincial crossings study, but that idea was dismissed as too expensive and not feasible. More recently, Mayor Jim Watson and city councillors have revisited the possibility of looking at a tunnel for trucks. With files from Nevil Hunt and Michelle Nash

Local band to show no mercy at Bluesfest Jennifer McIntosh

Entertainment - Everything seems to have come together for local blues-rock band the Wicked Mercy. Regulars at the Black Sheep Inn and Irene’s Pub, the fourpiece band, known for the blistering vocals of Case Bronson released their self-titled debut album at Irene’s Pub on April 27. They will also bring their unique sound to the Black Sheep stage at Bluesfest on July 13. “We are pretty excited to be playing Bluesfest,” said Bronson, who works at the Third World Bazaar in Manotick. “It’s kind of like the brass ring in Ottawa.” Coming off the release of their first album, Bronson said

the band is pretty excited for what’s next. The album was produced by Jordan Zadorozny, who works with the likes of Sam Roberts, Hole and Melissa Auf Der Maur. The members all bring something to the sound, whether it’s bassist Mark Sudiacal’s love of funk bands like the Red Hot Chili Peppers or Dave Nado’s love of heavy metal as evidenced in songs like Wanted Man or Love Like a Gun. “I like all kinds of stuff,” Bronson, a Hintonburg resident, said, naming influences such as the Beatles, Rolling Stones and Queens of the Stone Age, off the top of his head, while the band prepared for a night out at the Jazz Festival to see the Doobie Brothers.

Before they hit the stage at Bluesfest, the Wicked Mercy wickedmercy. will play Sab Stock in Pembroke, opening for David Wilcox on July 7. They are also working on recording their own EP, which Bronson said they plan to offer for free. “We have learned a lot about recording over the last year so we’re going to give it a try,” he said.

Federal funding aimed at human trafficking


News - The federal government hopes to have an impact on human trafficking in Ottawa. Rona Ambrose, the federal minister responsible for the status of women announced that $200,000 would be given to Persons Against the Crime of Trafficking in Humans Ottawa at a June 24 event at city hall. “This project will help to support the safety of women and girls in our nation’s capital,” Ambrose said. “Our government is taking action to protect the most vulnerable women in Canadian society. We

are doing this through action plans, new laws and essential women’s projects.” Ambrose added the federal government recently launched a national action plan to combat human trafficking. To improve the safety of women and girls across Canada who are targeted for sexual exploitation. The money will fund a two-year study that aims to prevent trafficking through education and collaboration. PACT Ottawa, along with the Ottawa police and Crime Prevention Ottawa will be working together to compile the data. Consultations within the community will aim to find gaps in programs.

Bring in this ad to the event to receive an additional ticket for a door prize

Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches said there have been charges of human trafficking laid by the Ottawa police in the past and he supports the initiative because it will work with stakeholders to protect the city’s women and girls. “Our organization is committed to ending the victimization of women and girls that results from the crime of human trafficking,” said Christina Harrison, director of project imPACT for PACT Ottawa. “We are pleased to partner with the Status of Women Canada and local agencies on this timely project, which will focus on vulnerable girls and young women from varied socio-economic backgrounds.” Insp. Uday Jaswal, who will be the lead on the project from the Ottawa police side, said it can be hard to identify trafficking victims because of under-reporting. “I think there’s also a wealth of information in the many agencies locally that provide support for victims of human trafficking, but they don’t often get a chance to collaborate,” he said.

Pet Adoptions



Meet Serena, a two-year-old, spayed female, gold and white Golden Retriever who loves to learn! This sweetheart was brought to the shelter as a stray on May 17, and is now ready to find her pack leader! Serena is a bright, and fun dog who just wants to please. Her and her new owner

will be sure to blow away any competition in obedience classes! Serena has a long, beautiful coat that will require some grooming to stay nice and soft, and to help reduce shedding. Serena is a “Special Needs” adoption. She came in to the shelter with a bad ear infection, and though she seems to be responding to the treatments, we are unclear at this point if her ears will be a chronic problem or not, as this dog’s new

owner you should be prepared for this possibility by discussing this with your veterinarian. Meet Smudge, a 6-year-old, neutered male, brown tabby and white Domestic Shorthair cat who loves to cozy up with his human and is available for adoption! Smudge is patient and has a great easy-going disposition. He wouldn’t mind sharing his household with cats and children, as long as they are cool as a cucumber, just like him. Smudge has only ever known an indoor lifestyle, and would rather not be an outdoor cat. Smudge loves to play and would love if his new family could provide him with great toys! For more information about these or other animals available for adoption, please call the Adoption Centre at 613-725-3166 ext. 258 or visit


Cool ways to beat the heat in lakes and larger bodies of water. PFDs are made just for dogs and are available at many stores – including the Ottawa Humane Society’s retail store located at 245 West Hunt Club Road. A good PFD will have flotation all around your animal’s body, not just along their backs and will be brightly coloured and have a large grab handle along the back of the jacket. If your dog has never worn a PFD, give them time to get acquainted with it before actually getting on the boat. Get your pet used to the PFD in small steps. Start with wearing it in and around your home, then outside for short walks and finally aboard the boat. Make sure the life jacket fits properly and allow your dog to practice swimming in it. To keep your dog from swimming too far away, use a long nylon lead. Keep a close watch to make sure your dog doesn’t get tangled in the lead. This is a great way to make sure new swimmers are relaxed and comfortable in the water.

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

Hughie is a Scottish Fold, a grey tabby, whose ear cartilage is folded, giving his face an owl-like appearance Smart, sweet and laid back, Hughie is a loverboy with big round golden eyes and a soft, tiny voice which is only used for greetings and food emergencies. This fur-face is a trusting homebody and a sharer of favorite things such as live frogs and deceased field mice at the cottage. Playful, curious, he accompanies me ‘round the garden sniffing the roses, his only dispute with the evil resident squirrel. Folds are also loved for their amazing body contortions, their eccentric positions when asleep. Fur-face does this unique sitting thing called the “buddha position”. On haunches, leaning against a pillow, back legs stretched out and front paws crossed on a furry tummy, he sleeps… and everyone in the room tiptoes because we simply cannot bear to disturb this lovable wonder who chooses to live in our home. 9dndji]^c`ndjgeZi^hXjiZZcdj\]idWZÆI=:E:ID;I=:L::@Ç4HjWb^iVe^XijgZVcYh]dgi W^d\gVe]nd[ndjgeZiidÒcYdjiH^beanZbV^aid/X[dhiZg5i]ZcZlhZbX#XVViiZci^dcÆEZid[i]ZLZZ`Ç

Summertime and the livin’ is easy, until a heat wave strikes and the recent weather in the Ottawa area makes it difficult for furry friends to stay cool. You may think that a backyard pool party or a trip to a local beach that allows dogs is a perfect way to beat the heat, but there are some things to think about before you dive in. If you’re swimming with your dog, don’t get in over your head. Many dogs will try to climb on their guardian’s head or shoulders when they tire. Keep a close watch on dogs near pools: an untrained animal will probably head for the nearest edge of the pool to get out, but slippery pool walls do not offer an easy exit. Panic can lead to exhaustion. Barking may be difficult for a dog in the water, making it tough for them to cry for help. Use a canine life vest or PFD. A well-fitted canine life vest is an easy way to keep your dog safe on a boat or while swimming

South Carleton class together again Emma Jackson

Community - When South Carleton High School opened its doors in 1952, it was like a homecoming. Students from continuation schools across Manotick, North Gower, Kars and Richmond had finally come together under one roof, and for many it felt like a reunion. “It was a big homecoming when we came together because we all knew each other in certain respects,” said Denny Charlebois, who hosted a reunion at his home on June 26 for the school’s first Grade 11 class. Students from the 1952-53 Grade 11 classes have been recreating such homecomings about every five years since the school’s 25th anniversary in 1977, when one former student decided to host the class for a proper catch-up. “It was very special,” Charlebois said. “Many of us hadn’t seen each other in 25 years.” This year about 35 former students celebrated the school’s 61st anniversary in Charlebois’ backyard. “It’s just all about good friends getting together.” As more students arrived at the event, laughter and chatter took over the shady backyard on the shore of the Rideau River. Most of the guests are now about 75, but leafing through the yearbooks took them back to their

youth in an instant. Marilyn Findlay, inspired by an old cheerleading photo found in one of the books, gathered together three of her former teammates to recreate the pose; their inability to stop laughing as they remade the moment was the only difference between the images separated by 60 years. Manotick couple Barb and Bruce Bracken didn’t sit together – preferring to catch up with old friends – but they are the only high school sweethearts from their Grade 11 class to get married. This year they will celebrate their 55th anniversary.

The pair met at a continuation school in Kars in Grade 10, and both moved to South Carleton for Grade 11. Their legacy at the school is impressive: their children and even some of their grandchildren attended the school after them. Still, Barb thinks her class shared a special connection, more so than her children or grandchildren felt with their classmates. “It was a different time,” she said, adding that these reunions are a good way to remember the past. “It’s wonderful. It’s nice to see our classmates.”


Above, Denny Charlebois tries on former classmate John Roy’s original South Carleton High School sweater at a Grade 11 class reunion on June 26. Left, Barb and Bruce Bracken are the only married high school sweethearts from their grade at South Carleton. They will be married 55 years this year.

Creating a Sustainable Public Sector Average Canadians understand that in order to be prosperous, you need to live within your means. You cannot spend more than you make, and you see that every dollar is spent wisely. Our government knows this too. That is why we are ending stimulus spending and taking steps to balance our budget and return to surplus by 2015. To do this, we are reforming the public sector in order to align it with current standards in the private sector. Public servants in the federal government have an average absentee rate of 18.2 days per year. This number is two and a half times more than what is common in the private sector. To put this in perspective, on any given day, approximately 19,000 public service workers are off sick. This is unsustainable.

Fire-dancing of Sophie Latreille will be back for the Evening of Light in New Edinburgh’s Stanely Park on Aug. 17. The Ottawa Lumière Festival’s 10th annual Celebration of Light begins on July 29 with the New Edinburgh Culinary Tour and three photo marathons running on Aug. 3, 10 and 17.

The solution is to reform and modernize the current disability system for public servants, which has gone unchanged for 40 years. By modernizing this system and creating a short-term disability insurance plan, we will be able to provide proper support to employees through periods of illness.

In addition, we announced a new management system that will track public service employees’ performance. This government-wide policy will help boost productivity and morale. It will permit management to reward good workers while dealing with poor performers effectively. Ensuring that everyone is pulling their weight is a common sense approach that will encourage the public service to work to its full potential. This is another way in which we are bringing public sector standards in line with the private sector.

News – New Edinburgh’s annual festival of light will showcase a number of Ottawa’s visual, music, film and circus artists this year. The New Edinburgh Community and Arts Centre announced the lineup for the 2013 Ottawa Lumière Festival on June 25. The organization promises a three week-long festival full of activities fit for the whole family. “Lumière is not your typical static audience experience,” said Melanie Davis, executive and creative director of the centre. “Lumière embraces all different types of artistic expression, inviting artists from all over the National Capital Region to come together and collaborate through photography, film, performance and visual arts and create something unprecedented.” Professional fire dancer Sophie Latreille, who will perform along-side her Mini Cirque/Fire Weavers troop for her 10th year, loves the participation and enthusiasm at the festival. “I absolutely love the Lumière Festival,” Latreille said. “There is a special ambiance there. It really is magical.” The festival is presented each year by the New Edinburgh centre and celebrates creativity and light. Among the activities which will be returning this year are the lantern workshops, a photography marathon challenge, story telling, fire dancing and circus arts. There will also be a lantern labyrinth, which invites festival patrons can silently walk through 600 candle lanterns that will be arranged in an ancient labyrinth pattern known as the “seven circuit labyrinth,” a pattern which dates back more than 4,000 years to ancient Crete. More than a dozen artists will perform during the Evening of Light. Davis said the festival invites participation, exploration and celebrates everyone’s creative spirit. “Lumière tears down the fourth wall and provides a dynamic creative experience for everyone,” she said. The event is pay-what-youcan. For more information about the festival or to view its full schedule please visit

With, Ottawa Valley LeafGuard you get MORE than a great gutter system you get expert installation and personal service from a local established company, who is going to be there during and after your installation. What’s Wrong with Clogged Cutters? Ordinary gutters capture rainwater and also collect leaves, twigs and other organic debris that can become clogged and create dams that impede the flow of water. These clogs cause water to spill over your gutter and pool on the ground below. This can result in damage to your shrubs; lead to surface erosion; and seep into your foundation causing cracks and basement flooding. Water can also spill behind the gutter causing damage to the wood of your fascia and soffit. If you have add-on toppers, helmets and hoods, that are attached to your roof and hang over your gutters, they are usually held in place by screws and nails hammered into your roof. Putting holes in your roof can cause leaks and may void your roof warrantees. Take the first step in making your home maintenance free

Mary has her first foray into milking the cows


’m telling you, she’s too young,” Mother said. Father said he milked a cow the day he learned to walk. Mother said “that’s nonsense, and you know it.” Rarely did I have so much attention sent my way and I loved every minute of it. With four siblings, rarely was I singled out, but that day I was getting my share. The subject was if I was old enough to milk. Once a calf got to the cow stage, I lost interest in her and I had little desire to sit with my head on her belly and try to get milk into a pail. But Father said it was time I did my share like everyone else in the family. Needless to say I was never consulted as to how I felt about the issue. And so on a Saturday, Father put a three-legged stool at the rear end of the quietest

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories cow in the cow byre, put a pail under her and without a word of instruction told me to go ahead and milk. The old cow turned her head in my direction and then back to chewing her cud. After watching my three brothers and sister do the milking often enough, I figured there wasn’t much to it. Well, I pulled and I tugged, and I spit on my hands and kept saying “sooo Bossie.” Nothing worked. The brothers were real pros at the job. The barn cats lined up on the other side of the gutter and every so often a squirt

of milk would be headed in their direction. Without fail, the milk went right into their opened mouths. But here was I who couldn’t even get a drop of milk into the pail. My arms ached right up to my shoulders and a couple times I almost fell off the three-legged stool. It was beyond me why the milk stool only had three legs in the first place. To add to my misery, it was fly season and the poor old cow kept swishing her tail trying to rid herself of the pests. With each swish, however, I

took a lash square in the face. Mother was right -- I was too young for this job. But to convince Father was another matter. First of all, I didn’t like the cow byre. It was full of cobwebs, the cows smelled differently from the horses and I wouldn’t put it past any one of them to give me a good kick, especially when I was engaged in something as personal as tugging at her private parts. Emerson, Everett and Earl were into the snickering and I knew it wouldn’t be long before I was into the tears. It was my beloved sister Audrey who finally came to my rescue. She finished milking her cows, the milk had been emptied into the cans, and came over to where I was sitting hunched over, still tugging away with absolutely not a drop to show for my efforts. “Let me try,” she said, and I gladly surrendered the stool. The milk spewed out on the first try with Audrey. I blamed it on the cow. I thought I was doing exactly what my sister was doing, but it certainly wasn’t working for me. I was convinced the cow

didn’t like me any more than I liked her. Audrey tried her best to show me how to milk. Nothing worked. Finally, she went up to Father who was at the far end of the cow byre. “Mary’s hands are too small,” she said. “And the cow’s too big,” I offered. Father ran his hand over my head. Even though it wasn’t near my nose, I could smell cow and milk off him, neither of which were my favourite odours. “Well, we’ll try again some other time,” he said. I was out of the barn before you could say “milk pail.” I ran to the house and told Mother I wanted to change my clothes. She knew exactly why. I bundled up what I had on in the barn and brought the whole pile down to the summer kitchen to wait for the Monday wash. I asked Mother for a pan of hot water and wash cloth and towel, which I hauled upstairs to the privacy of the bedroom. I washed every square inch of my body I could reach, but I thought I could still smell the cow byre off my skin.

I opened my sister Audrey’s drawer of the little wash stand we shared and took out her precious can of Lily of the Valley talcum powder and slathered it on with abandon. Then I put on clean clothes from the inside out. When we sat down for supper, my try at milking was never mentioned. I figured the brothers had been warned not to bring up the subject and I knew, without a doubt, my milking days were over, but only for the time being. Everyone had to pull their share back then and I knew the time would come when I would be led back into the cow byre and made stick at it until I could fill a milk pail like the brothers and Audrey. Not a word was spoken all during supper about how I had failed at a job that everyone worth his or her salt would be expected to do growing up on a farm long before modern milking machines did the job for you. Even Audrey, who guarded her belongings like a mother hen guarding her chicks, never said a word about how I smelled of Lily of the Valley.

Province should step in to help arbitration, says El-Chantiry

News – Arbitration reform at the provincial level is needed to keep police costs sustainable, says Ottawa Police Services board chair and West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry. The Ottawa Police Services board agreed to cap the 2014 police budget with an increase of 1.99 per cent. This translates into about $3.6 million dollars which will need to be cut. El-Chantiry believes this target

will be reached by cutting spending on fuel and storage and decreasing spending on printing and advertising. Though the nearly two-per-cent increase was agreed by all parities on Monday, future budgets may not be so easily ratified. Over the past decade, policing cots have doubled and every year the increase is a “moving target” besieged by the whims of union arbitration. “Last time, we budgeted for 2.5 per cent and it came out to three per cent, so that half a per cent along

in the police salary budget is over a million dollars,” said El-Chantiry. To avoid such a financial kerfuffle, deep changes must happen, namely that arbitration should be held at the provincial level, said ElChantiry. “My only option is that the province takes on negotiations,” he said. “They negotiate teachers’ salaries and benefits, for nurses and doctors and others. Why don’t they take on emergency services and negotiate their salaries?” Policing alone doesn’t make a community safer, he claimed.

Stay smart on the water Jennifer McIntosh

News – Staying smart on the water is all about common sense said Boatsmart president Cameron Taylor. Taylor spent the morning of June 27 cruising the Ottawa River near the Nepean Sailing Club to remind boaters to be safe this summer. He said it’s especially important to be vigilant around long weekends. “Keep an eye out for other boaters because there’s going to be a lot more traffic on the waterways,” he said.

Boatsmart was founded 10 years ago and is mandated by Transport Canada to outfit drivers with their Boatsmart operator card and to increase awareness of safe practices on the water. The fine for operating a boat without the card is $250, Taylor said, but avoiding the fine isn’t the only reason to get the qualification. “You need to get the card so that when you’re out on the water you know how to navigate and know the rules,” he said. Rule number one is never go out on a boat without wearing a personal floatation device. Taylor said 85 per cent of drowning fatalities could have been prevented by

One out of five police calls are mental health related and support is needed. “That’s what’s missing in this conversation,” said the chairman. “Let’s go back and evaluate what the police job is and what they should be doing.” El-Chantiry has been pushing for arbitration reform since 2004 and believes all emergency services should fall under that umbrella. “Fire always sits on their hands waiting for the police to negotiate their contract and then they’ve been asked to be given the same thing,”

wearing one. Drinking and boating also don’t mix. “Seasoned boaters might think it’s OK to have a drink before they boat, but they forget that the effects of alcohol are four times more severe on water than they are on land,” he said, adding 40 per cent of boating fatalities are alcohol related. Before heading out on a trip, the boater should file a travel plan with a trusted friend or the coast guard so someone knows when they should be back. He also recommended having a look at the navigation chart of the area where you’ll be travelling to avoid rocks. Checking the weather before you head out can prevent accidents, Taylor said, but if something comes up unexpectedly head to the nearest safe harbour.

he said. “It’s happened in the past.” “Where is the sustainability here?” he added. There needs to be a balance in what the city can afford to pay, what police deserve to be paid and what is being paid. Every half per cent increase in the policing budget equals to about $1.3 million that the city must pay. “That’s why I put the call out to the province,” said El-Chantiry. “Like either you fix arbitration so we have something balance here or you take on the negotiations with all emergency services.”

GUTKNECHT, Eric Leslie William June 25, 2010 of Kemptville. We thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new. We thought about you yesterday, and the day before that, too. We think of you in silence, we often say your name, But all we have are memories and your picture in a frame. Your memory is our keepsake, with which we’ll never part. God has you in His keeping, we have you in our heart. We shed tears for what might have been, a million times we’ve cried. If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died. In life we loved you dearly, in death we love you still, In our heart you hold a place, no one could ever fill. It broke our heart to lose you, but you didn’t go alone, For part of us went with you, the day God took you Home. Mom and Dad Visit for more information on the Eric Gutknecht Memorial Bursary.

Manotick News EMC - Thursday, July 4, 2013

EMC news - Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley is spitting mad over the city’s lax procedures to help homeowners who fall victim to the city’s “sewer blasts.” There’s no way to put it delicately, Hubley said. The way the city clears blocked sewer pipes can sometimes cause the sewer’s contents – including human waste – to explode from a toilet into someone’s home. This happens to an average of 55 buildings in the city each year, according to a 2009 city report. “It’s hazardous waste,” Hubley said. But there is a simple way to prevent it, he said – one that he has been working with city staff to implement since shortly after he was elected in 2010. “(Staff) told me the simple solution is … what your mother told you as a young boy: to put the (toilet) seat down,” he said. Since he found that out thanks to an inquiry by his predecessor, Peggy Feltmate, Hubley has asked for staff to let him know before they show up on a street to clear the sewers. He sends out a flyer to all the affected homes to let them know how to prevent issues. Hubley thought that was being done for councillors across the city, but he was “shocked”


to find out on June 19 that other councillors were not being told when sewer clearing is happening in their wards. A livid Alta Vista Coun. Peter Hume raised the issue at a June 18 environment committee meeting. He recounted a story of a resident in his ward who suffered that fate and was sprayed with effluent as a result of sewer cleaning. When the resident called 311, they were given no information or advice on how to deal with the situation and were told to contact their insurance provider. “If someone gets splashed with that effluent while they’re

doing the laundry, we don’t give them any advice,” Hume said. “It’s incredibly poor customer service. “In the world of municipal politics, there is nothing worse than crap in peoples’ basements,” he added. Hume said the city should be responsible for the cleanup and should not “download” the responsibility onto homeowners. Hubley agreed. “We created this problem. We should be part of the solution,” he said. Sewer cleaning needs to be done approximately every five to seven years in each community, Hubley said. Annual clearing happens in problem areas where sewers have dips that collect leaves and other materials that block the flow. The other cleaning option would be to send city workers into the sewers to dig up the blockages, Hubley said. That process is more tedious and expensive and involves closing roads, he said. There are approximately 200,000 buildings connected to 2,700 kilometres of sanitary pipes in the city of Ottawa. Each year, the city cleans 800 km of pipes in front of approximately 60,000 buildings. The report indicated in 2009 there were 1,591 buildings receiving special notifications of sewer cleaning. Recurrences are uncommon, the report states.

You don’t need to hide behind a mask, Aries. Let your true feelings be shown and you will gain more respect for having done so. If you meet resistance, try again. Don’t worry about a missed opportunity this week, Taurus. You will get a second chance and make the most of that welldeserved opportunity. Gemini, you will need to find ways to sure up a plan of action before you can start to move forward. You may want to seek advice from Pisces. Cancer, keep trying even if you feel as though your efforts are getting you nowhere. Eventually you will make a breakthrough, and all that hard work will pay off. Leo, take care of a few things early in the week and then enjoy some much-needed and well-deserved rest and relaxation. Put travel at the top of your to-do list. Virgo, you may experience a scare, but it will be short-lived and you will recover quickly. The rest of the week may prove uneventful, but do your best to stay busy.

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!


CLUES ACROSS 1. Applies paint lightly 5. House mice genus 8. Bible’s Chronicles (abbr.) 11. Old World buffalo 12. Expression of contempt 13. Levi jeans competitor 15. A small-wooded hollow 16.

Eiderdown filled 50. In the year of Our Lord 52. Obstruct or block 53. A companion animal 54. Political action committee

Libra, you may be second-guessing an earlier decision that you now find isn’t working out exactly as you had hoped. It is not too late to take a different path. Scorpio, spend some quality time at home if you have been away for awhile. Time spent with your loved ones will reinvigorate you and put some hop back in your step. Sagittarius, step out of the shadows for a bit this week to get the praise and recognition you deserve. There’s no shame in accepting the gratitude of others. Capricorn, your focus on the future may be making it difficult for you to see what is right in front of you. Take stock of your immediate future and you’ll be glad you did. Aquarius, expect to tackle many things on your to-do list this week. While you are feeling motivated, keep going. You may accomplish a lot more. Pisces, sometimes you will have to make sacrifices, and this week you may find yourself putting others first. You thrive at being selfless.
