EMC news - A traffic quandary that has frustrated Manotick’s Long Island residents for more than 30 years is set to be solved this fall. On Sept. 6 the city’s agriculture and rural affairs committee voted to build a road to connect Van Vliet Road to Bridge Street and create a signalized intersection. The work is set to be done before the snow flies. Traffic snarls at Bridge Street are a result of traffic coming from the island’s south end, because there are only three connecting streets and none of those Bridge Street intersections are signalized, making it difficult for drivers to turn left. “If you’re stuck in a part of a development in part of the southern part of the island, you cannot make a left turn on Bridge Street to get to the main street in Manotick where all the shops are because the traffic doesn’t want to let you in to make a left turn. “So you need a traffic light,” said Manotick Village Community Association president Klaus Beltzner. “That has been known for more than 30 years.” The issue has dragged on for so long that Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt was hesitant to celebrate until the 30-day appeal period is over and a shovel is in the ground. “Things look good for a Nov. 1 start date,” Moffatt said. Beltzner said residents will be happy, but the decision came out of the blue. The last the community heard on the matter was during a June 19 open house to get feedback on a couple of Bridge Street connection options.

“People are happy about the solution. They wish they would have been able to hear about it before it happened,” Beltzner said, noting that he didn’t know a solution had been finalized and was ready to be voted on until a few days before the Sept. 6 vote. An environmental assessment study also looked at the possibility of extending South River Drive around a curve to Long Island Road – an option Moffatt originally supported before hearing from residents. Eighty-four per cent of residents who responded preferred the Van Vliet option. “The answer back was that we’re not interested in further delays and having to add more money to this project,” Beltzer said. “We want something simple, straight, and we want it yesterday.” “It means so much to these people. It’s everything,” Moffat said. “This is one of the oldest issues, if not the oldest, in my ward. It dates back to the ‘70s.” The previous ward councillor, Glenn Brooks, brought forward a motion to include $250,000 for the project in the 2007 budget, but the funding wasn’t approved. The project is expected to cost $1.2 million this year. SIDEWALKS

Manotick had to make one compromise in order to get the road built: it won’t have sidewalks when it is constructed this fall. There will, however, be paved shoulders that will be separated from the roadway with some kind of buffer, such as a painted rumble strip. Sidewalks could come in the future, but the complication of including them now would have held up the project until next year. See MANOTICK page 2

Metcalfe subdivision proposal sparks water quality debate Emma Jackson

EMC news – Water quality was the major concern at a public meeting to discuss a new subdivision proposed in Metcalfe. About 25 residents came to the Metcalfe community centre to hear about the proposal and get assurances that their wells and water quality won’t be affected by the new houses. Metcalfe has historically suffered from water quality issues, and residents were concerned that the new subdivision would draw so much water that houses south of the development would be left

has a larger water supply, in accordance with a 2003 water quality study conducted by the city. Many older wells in Metcalfe draw from the smaller upper aquifer. While Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson couldn’t guarantee there wouldn’t be water quality disruptions, he said based on the developer’s hydro-geological studies he doubts there will be any impact. “The planning department and the developer have reached an agreement that the city can live with and is comfortable approving,” Thompson said.

with inferior drinking water. The 36-hectare proposed subdivision would add 63 single family dwellings east of 8th Line Road and north of McKendry and Andrew Simpson Drives. Lots would range from 0.2 to 2.75 hectares. The plan includes a 50-metre buffer zone on the east side, which will be left as a natural tree line. Another 30-metre tree line will create a barrier between existing properties on the southern border, and is meant to help with drainage and storm water management. A storm water management pond will be located in the north-eastern corner of the site. Wells will be drilled into the lower aquifer, which

Manotick’s Bridge Street solution on the way Continued from page 1

Van Vliet

Van Vliet Road, running north-south, will be extended to connect Long Island Road to Bridge Street.

The issue is water drainage. While rural roads are usually built with ditches to catch rainwater, adding sidewalks would create the need for a culvert to drain the water, since the sidewalk curbs prevent water from draining off the road. That is not only more expensive, but it would also require more approvals from the provincial Ministry of the Environment, and therefore more time. “We will look at what we can do to make them safe and

pedestrian friendly and then we will look at what we can do to create a sidewalk in the future,” Moffatt said. “This is a compromise for an interim soluation,” Beltzner said. Manotick resident Bruce Willems said the new road should have sidewalks from the start, because it will be used by children from the south end of the island to get to Manotick Public School. But Willems said it is more important to get the project done this fall, so with that in mind, sidewalks can wait. EMMA JACKSON/METROLAND

Mom, can we go to another one?

He said the original plan asked for more than 70 lots, some with multi-residential buildings, which the city refused to approve because the land could not support it. Resident Mike Knoefler, whose property backs onto the development’s southern boundary, said he’s not against the development but isn’t convinced the developer’s storm water and water quality plans are going to work. If they don’t, he wants the city to be held accountable. “The people want an assurance that if this gets approved and our water mysteriously goes bad, the city’s on the hook for that,” Knoefler said. Thompson said the onus is partly on private owners to protect themselves, by maintaining their wells and getting their water tested before the development starts. That way, they can better prove that the development has caused a problem, he said. Knoefler, despite his hesitations, agreed – “It could be the best $120 you ever spent,” he said. Several residents expressed concerns about the Cassidy municipal drain, which runs through the northeast corner of the development and into the village. It hasn’t been cleaned out for decades, and causes flooding almost every spring across Andrew Simpson Drive and 8th Line Road. They said it should be cleared of its current blockages before

more is added to it. EXP consultant Alam Ansari, who presented the plans on behalf of the developer, said the hydro-geological study found that the proposed subdivision only represents two per cent of the catchment area for the Cassidy municipal drain, and there would be little to no impact on the flooding situation – in fact, the development could improve it. Resident Margaret McCooey was more concerned about the traffic impacts of the new development, which would add about 120 cars to local roads. A traffic study was not required, but she said the city needs to take those impacts into account before approving the development. “8th Line Road is a dangerous road. Its high speed, high volume and has no shoulders. Someone is going to get killed,” she said. City planner Melissa JortConway said traffic studies aren’t required when existing roads are available to support the increased traffic. Thompson said he was glad residents came out to voice their concerns, and hopes they agree that this development is good for the village. He said it’s only the third in the village in 12 years – a far cry from neighbouring Greely, which is expanding at a rapid rate. “Everyone is nervous about change, and it is a significant change for the village. But I think it will be beneficial for the village,” he said.

Manotick to get its plan in 2013 Laura Mueller


This photo shows the smoke emitted from Dan Renaud’s neighbour’s wood-burning furnace in Carlsbad Springs. The city is planning to regulate how close to neighbouring homes people should be allowed to install the standalone heating units.

New rules for woodburning heaters Laura Mueller

EMC news – New rules to regulate hydronic heaters in the city’s rural areas were tweaked in response to concerns expressed earlier this summer. The rules, which are new to Ottawa but common in smaller rural Ontario municipalities, are meant to govern where property owners can place the wood-burning boilers on their lots, and on which properties they are allowed. The changes followed comments voiced by both owners of the heat-producing boilers, neighbours bothered by the smoke the devices spew onto their properties and representatives from the industry. The standalone devices are common means of heating homes – and sometimes pools – in rural areas. The issue was first brought to the attention of the city’s agriculture and rural affairs committee on Jan. 13 by Carlsbad Springs resident Dan Renaud and Glen Roberts of Cumber-

land. The committee approved revised rules on Sept. 6. Renaud and Roberts detailed their frustration as neighbours’ wood-burning boilers sat directly adjacent to their properties. If the smokestack isn’t tall enough and the boiler is close to a neighbouring home, heavy smoke can drift across a neighbours’ property. With that in mind, the city drafted new rules that would prevent people from putting a boiler on their property if it’s a small lot. The proposed rules also include provisions for how far away the unit must be from a neighbouring home and how tall the smokestack must be. After a public consultation in May, the proposed minimum setback for a heater’s distance from a neighbour was reduced, and agriculture zones were excluded from the 8,000-metre square lot minimum. The height requirement for smokestacks was also reduced, as was the distance between neighbours that would trigger a height increase for the smokestack. The finalized rules also exclude automatically fed pellet boilers and controlled combustion. But the city couldn’t find a way to avoid “grandfathering” existing hydronic heaters in Ottawa, which displeased

Renaud and Roberts. Since the most logical and effective way to regulate the devices is to use zoning provisions, said city staffer Geraldine Wildman, any hydronic heaters that are already in place are allowed to remain. In Renaud’s case, he says smoke from his neighbour’s wood boiler has prevented him from working at his carpentry shop in the spring. For Roberts, the concern is health. His wife has a chronic cough and must use an inhaler, which the couple attributes to the smoke coming from their neighbour’s wood-burning boiler. City lawyer Tim Marc said it’s an “awful situation” that likely results from improper use and maintenance of the devices. The boilers smoke more if green materials are used instead of dry wood or pellets, and some people even burn garbage and other materials, which produces dangerous toxic smoke. “What about the right to breathe fresh air?” Renaud said. “What is my option? To walk around with a fresh air tank?” For people dealing with a problem hydronic heater on a neighbour’s property, their only recourse will be taking their neighbours to court, Marc said. The rules still need city council’s final approval.

Existing hydronic heaters exempt from rules

EMC news – Manotick Village Community Association president Klaus Beltzner says the news that the village’s secondary plan will be done next year is the best birthday gift he could receive. Beltzner celebrated his birthday on Sept. 6 by receiving word that the city will bump the village’s secondary plan to the top of the work plan for the planning department in 2012. John Moser, general manager of planning and growth management, confirmed the news, but said it will mean that another project will drop off the department’s list of things to do in 2013. He wasn’t certain which project would have to wait in order to

Rural Review, residents expressed a strong interest in creating and maintaining employment opportunities in the village core, but transportation, a green space network, development in the village core and at its fringes were all raised as concerns. “We are the one village … that does have development, that does have pressures on it,” said Noel Norenius, of the Manotick Parks, Culture and Recreation Association. “Housing is coming.” Norenius said the city needs to address the pressure to expand Manotick into neighbouring Osgoode Ward – something the city has been reticent to do. “(Manotick residents) want to control their future … we need help now,” Norenius said.

While the city’s other villages received updated plans during a comprehensive Rural Review that wrapped up in May, Manotick was left out of that process because the village’s issues were too complex and will require more attention, Robin van de Lande, the lead city planner on the review, said in May. “Completing the Secondary Plan is important to me as it is the only vehicle that allows the village to participate in planning its own future before it is planned by others,” Beltzner said. At that time, city staff confirmed that the intention was to have the Manotick plan review continue into 2013, but no definite timeline was defined. At public meetings on the

Fall fashion to support Watson’s Mill programs this September Emma Jackson

Emma Jackson/Metroland

Eva Michaliszyn, owner of the Nin boutique in Manotick, will host a fall fashion show at Watson’s Mill on Sept. 28.

EMC news – Heritage and high fashion will come together at a fall fashion show at Watson’s Mill on Friday, Sept. 28. Since 2007, Nin Boutique owner Eva Michaliszyn has organized a charity fall fashion show for Manotick’s landmark heritage site, where she showcases her fall and winter collections while visitors enjoy a relaxing “girls’ night out” at the mill. The evening begins at 7 p.m. and Black Dog Bistro will cater a mix and mingle hour with appetizers and wine on the mill’s main floor. The Swing Bridge Band will keep everybody hopping throughout the hour. At 8 p.m., guests will move to the mill’s upper level for the fashion show. Chairs are stationed around the old milling machinery so that everyone gets a front row seat. “It’s a relaxing evening, it’s rustic and has a nice atmosphere,” said Michaliszyn. “It’s a girls’ night out, it’s a really great couple of hours.” Michaliszyn has owned her women’s clothing boutique for 28 years, and spent 20 years downtown Ottawa at Kent and Queen Streets. Eight years ago the Manotick resident brought

the business back to her own village and immediately began to give back to the community that embraced her. “The town gave me a shot from the start. I was very, very lucky,” she said. “I do this to give back, it’s as simple as that.” While she supports other causes throughout the year, “this is my main thing,” she said, because Watson’s Mill is such an important part of the community. “That’s what makes us unique. We need to keep it up,” she said. Mill manager Isabelle Geoffrion said Michaliszyn’s efforts have been a huge boon for the museum. Her fashion shows have already raised $30,000 for museum programming. Geoffrion hopes to make about $5,000 this year between ticket sales and the evening’s raffles. Tickets are $35 and include a drink voucher. All of the proceeds go towards Watson’s Mill programming – a huge help for the community museum, according to Geoffrion. “Events like this that really help us make sure we have a whole calendar of public programming throughout the year,” she said. “There are all kinds of things that we do ... never mind all the milling demonstrations and being

open free to the public seven days a week.” Geoffrion said Michaliszyn’s commitment to the museum makes her one of the village’s unsung heroes. “It’s time we highlight her story a little bit because she’s been so incredibly generous with us,” she said. While the mill provides some volunteers and helps with some logistical planning, Michaliszyn champions the show every year, Geoffrion said. Michaliszyn said she will bring a mix of business, weekend and “after-five” fashions. She will not sell anything on site during the event, she said, because she doesn’t want to pressure anyone into buying. However she will open her store on Manotick Main Street after the event until about midnight. If nothing else, Geoffrion said the fashion show itself is worth seeing. “The ladies of Manotick dress extremely well. (At this event) I’m usually the one whose the worst dressed in the entire building,” Geoffrion laughed. “It’s really fun and interesting to see.” Tickets are available at Nin Boutique on Manotick Main Street or at the mill.

“Dorothy Farm was an intense process but loads of fun,” she said in an email from Toronto, where she was training for her television debut. “We learned a lot about ourselves as performers. We also learned a lot of vocal techniques and ways to improve our singing.” La Rochelle is the only Ottawa-area contestant left, and hopes she’ll get a chance to bring her small-town roots to the Mirvish stage. “Dorothy reminds me a lot of myself as she is loyal, caring, persistent and determined,” La Rochelle said. “Being from a small town, there isn’t much hope for an aspiring performer and I too would like to get out of ‘Kansas,’ explore the world, take chances and make my dreams come true.” One dream has already come true: auditioning for Webber. “It was a little bit nerveracking but I gave it my all and he is a really nice man,” she said.

A recent investment by a family owned company is making business news in Eastern Ontario. NOCO Canada, a family owned and locally operated company has been serving Canada’s energy needs for decades. The company is leveraging their rich heritage in the business with an expansion of their fuel and lubricant operations into the Trenton and Ottawa areas. As a proud Esso and Mobil branded reseller, NOCO supplies heating oil, gasoline, diesel, and lubricants to serve residential, farm, commercial, and industrial customers. “With almost eighty years of experience in the energy business, we are honoured to have the opportunity to serve the hard working consumers of this region,” noted Mark Yeatman, General Manager of NOCO Fuels Canada, a wholly owned subsidiary of NOCO Canada. With this expansion, NOCO has established more local offices to efficiently and safely deliver high-quality products at competitive prices. With office locations in Toronto, Trenton, Ottawa and Pembroke, NOCO simplifies access for their customers by allowing them to get all of their products from one place. One major change customers will see is the elimination of a national call center. By establishing local offices and working with local personnel, NOCO is keeping business local and investing in communities. Other improved operations include online ordering and automatic payments, with online billpay coming soon. NOCO’s customers can expect the prompt, courteous, and dependable service they deserve.

The company provides a full line of Mobil lubricants for automotive, fleet, industrial, metalworking, and specialty needs. NOCO also offers a used oil recycling program in some areas to make sure that businesses never need to worry about the proper collection, transportation, and processing of the waste they generate. “We believe the addition of the new products and new geography allows NOCO to address unmet consumer needs in the territory. Along with our key product brands, Mobil and Esso, we offer excellent service and local personnel. Our distribution model is strong and this new venture will provide strong value to the consumers throughout the region,” said James D. Newman, President of NOCO Canada.

and the theatre community what they have to offer. Hosted by comedian Daryn Jones, the premiere will announce the top 10 Dorothies, and directly afterward all 10 will perform. Each Sunday, viewers can vote online for their favourite Dorothy, and each Monday the bottom two contestants will compete for the judges’ favour on the half-hour elimination shows. According to the show’s website, producers are looking for “a teenager who wants to break free from her life and see the world. She needs to be feisty, spirited and funny.” La Rochelle, a recent St. Mark Catholic School graduate, feels she fits that bill. After making the top 20 earlier this summer, she went off to Dorothy Farm in Toronto where she and the other 19 hopefuls undertook “intense dance and vocal training” with some of Canada’s foremost theatre experts – Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber among them. La Rochelle said the camp was “probably the greatest experience of my life.”

Agricultural fairs holding steady in rural Ottawa

EMC news – We may live in an increasingly urban world, but the rural fair isn’t going anywhere – at least not in Ottawa. Indeed, the educational opportunities at agricultural fairs are even more important than ever, according to Metcalfe Fair spokesperson Cheryl Cooper. She said that as more kids grow up in the city, rural agricultural fairs play an important role in showing the next generation where their food comes from. “Fifty or 75 years ago most people came from a farm. Now we need to actively teach that (farm knowledge),” she said. “Not everybody has the grow vegetables or to see a giant pumpkin.” The Metcalfe Fair offers an annual ‘Barn Door Exhibit’ that welcomes schoolchildren to see and touch the produce that ends up on their dinner tables. Livestock farmers bring their cows, sheep, pigs, rabbits and chickens and other producers showcase their grains, wool and other items that most kids would rarely see. And it’s not just rural families coming to the fair. Cooper said that as the idea of eating locally takes hold, more and more urban families are bringing their kids to the weekly farmers’ market and to the annual fair to see first hand what farmers do. “Certainly they’re bringing their families and they want their children to learn where their food is coming from. It’s not just for the rides and the midway,” she said. The city’s environmental movement is leading this charge to embrace local produce. Savour Ottawa, for example, is a collaboration of area farmers that provides a resource for consumers looking to buy local, sustainable food. And the theme for Ecology Ottawa’s 2012 Eco Gala in October is ‘Celebrate Local Harvests’ and will include a four-course meal sourced

from local producers. Even in Manotick, a new farmers’ market popped up this summer to promote local produce. In Ottawa’s rural areas, involvement in the 4-H clubs that give kids hands-on agricultural experiences have remained steady. Cooper said the Metcalfe area’s participation rates, particularly in the dairy sector, are as high as they’ve ever been, if not higher.

Fifty or 75 years ago most people came from a farm. Now... not everybody has the opportunity... to grow vegetables or to see a giant pumpkin. CHERYL COOPER, METCALFE FAIR

She said part of the fair’s strength comes from its adaptability. The Metcalfe Fair will celebrate 156 years this September – an anniversary that predates both the city of Ottawa and the formation of Canada. While it has stuck to its rural roots with horse, cattle and sheep shows every day, a fiddle and step-dance competition and popular competitions for best pie, biggest pumpkin and best quilt (among many other categories), it has also embraced what modern audiences want, said Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson. “I find the executives are very progressive minded, they’re always looking to the future. New attractions, they’re always looking for new ideas,” he said. The fair has added a popular demolition derby that draws crowds on the fair’s opening night, and over the years has added attractions like a fashion show, tractor pulls and lawnmower races. This year it will add a classic car show and a truck pull, and has adopted the marketing motto, ‘Make it your fair.’

The Arnprior Fair, which took place August 9 to 12, also features a demolition derby and truck and tractor pulls alongside the traditional livestock and exhibit halls. The Navan Fair, which ran the same weekend, added a ladies’ minivan class to their demolition derby this year. The Richmond Fair, which takes place Sept. 13 to 16, even has a BMX bike show in their lineup, as well as a youth talent show. Cooper said this flexibility attracts new audiences and maintains interest with returning patrons. However some fairs have a different strategy. Carp Fair general manager Joyce Trafford said the west end agricultural fair has opted not to add modern attractions like a demolition derby or tractor pull, although it does have a midway and evening entertainment. She said maintaining the focus on the fair’s rural traditions is more important than ever. “The exhibitors of livestock are getting less and less, but there’s more and more people who need to know where their food is coming from. So we’re educating people that way,” she said. She said the fair’s biggest challenge is the encroachment of subdivisions and development. “At one time we were sitting pretty in the town of Carp,” she said. “There are subdivisions around every agricultural ground now. So we, the organizers of agricultural fairs, are growing (but) we have to work within our boundaries of being landlocked.” The Carp fair, for the time being, has solved this problem by limiting on-site parking and shuttling visitors to the fair from off-site parking instead. Cooper said no matter the challenges, area fairs are still going strong – and Metcalfe’s especially. “As other agricultural events have seen their end, we took on the regional shows ... and that gives us some added strength.”


Hailey Smygwaty takes a seat in a prize-winning pumpkin at last year’s Metcalfe Fair. Ottawa’s rural fairs provide urban visitors an opportunity to see and do things they otherwise might never experience in the city. Metcalfe Fair spokesperson Cheryl Cooper said that as more children grow up in apartment buildings and high-density areas, its important to expose them to rural and agricultural traditions.

Get electoral boundary changes right


ndertaking the task of re-drawing federal electoral boundaries is surely daunting, but it serves to ensure all Canadians are as equitably represented in the House of Commons as possible. While the recent announcement of a proposed federal electoral map makes several positive moves for voters in the city of Ottawa, it also fails to address an issue that many residents of this city can relate

to: the urban-suburban-rural divides. The total number of electoral districts required in Ontario has grown by 15 to 121, triggered by 2011 census data showing this province’s population has grown by more than 1.4 million since 2001. According to the proposal created by a federal electoral boundaries commission, a number of new ridings have been created in areas of dramatic population growth across the province. Some ex-

isting riding boundaries have likewise been adjusted. Among them are the proposed new riding of Nepean and the renamed riding of Carleton-Kanata, formerly Carleton-Mississippi Mills. There are positive aspects to both of these moves, but they were easy decisions to make. Move the western border of the renamed Carleton-Kanata riding to the city limits, break off the well-populated suburban chunk of the massive Nepean-Carleton riding and

name it Nepean. Job done. But there are missed opportunities here. Residents in rural places like Carp, Fitzroy Harbour and Dunrobin are still at the mercy of the suburban voters in Kanata. The voices of voters in Dwyer Hill, North Gower and Metcalfe are still drowned out by residents of Stittsville, Riverside South and Greely – larger, denser suburban nooks in what is mainly a rural riding. The situation is slightly dif-

ferent in the east end, where pockets of voters in places like Cumberland, Carlsbad Springs, Vars and Sarsfield remain in the sprawling Glengarry-Prescott-Russell riding, despite the fact they pay city property taxes. These examples stand out as missed opportunities for the commission, opportunities to ensure voters receive fair, balanced representation in the House of Commons. Presently, it must be difficult for an MP, such as Nepe-

an-Carleton’s Pierre Poilievre or Carleton-Mississippi Mills’ Gordon O’Connor, to balance the way they represent their constituents. They are beholden to two different viewpoints, but one of those viewpoints gets them elected, the other – owing to smaller numbers – doesn’t. The federal electoral boundaries commission should be doing its utmost to make this balancing act easier for our elected officials, so they can serve an electorate with common concerns. If it involves redrawing the entire Ottawa electoral map to ensure the population is balanced, so be it.


Giving a nod to the wave CHARLES GORDON Funny Town


aving is important. We don’t do it enough either. The other day, in one of those inevitable construction lineups on Highway 7, I watched the guy in front of me wave to the flagman as we started moving after a long delay. The flagman waved back. I waved too. He waved back at me. It was nice. Now, what did it mean? What were we all saying to each other? The guy in front, was he saying “thanks for waving me on, for changing the STOP sign to the SLOW sign�? Or was he saying: “No hard feelings: it’s not your fault I had to sit here for five minutes.� Or was he saying: “Thanks for standing out in the hot sun all day so that all of us don’t go crunching into some construction machinery?� What about the flag guy? Was he saying “thanks for being so patient� or was he saying “thanks for waving?� It could have been any or all of that, or none of it. Probably what mattered most of all was that we were human beings acknowledging that we’re all in this together, which, when you think about it, we don’t do often enough. On our lakes there is an old tradition that people in boats wave at people in other boats as they pass. Who knows what that means, perhaps something about members of the community of boaters saluting each other. The funny thing is you notice it when it doesn’t happen. And if it does happen, it can change the way you think about the other boater. Say he’s driving some great big noisy overpowered ocean liner of a boat that you think

has no business being on a lake this size. And as you’re thinking that, he gives you a friendly wave. Oh well, you think, at least he waved. Waving is a connection. Sometimes it’s an unpleasant connection, such as the well-known one-finger wave which usually occurs in traffic. Other times the connection is fleeting and distant. Children wave at a passing train. Passengers wave back. What does it mean for either of them? Yet they couldn’t not do it. The wave as “thank you� figures prominently in our daily lives. You know the situation: You’re coming out of a gas station or a side street into a heavy stream of traffic and somebody slows to let you in. When you are safely into the traffic, you wave your thanks. With your whole hand. And you mean it. Without people like that, willing to give up a few seconds of their busy lives, we’d be living in chaos, gridlock interrupted by some people barging into traffic and others slamming on their brakes. There would be a lot more one-finger waving then. The funny thing is that, even though the sacrifice we make in letting someone in is tiny, we still expect to be thanked for it. We want to see that wave. When we don’t, we are annoyed. “Wave, dammit,� we mutter from behind the steering wheel. The same thing goes for when we hold open a door for someone. It’s certainly no trouble, but we expect thanks for it. It may be sheer vanity but it may also be that we like people to acknowledge that we exist. Such acknowledgement is all the more important in an age when so many of our dealings are with computers, robots and other gizmos that know us only as a number, if at all. So we wave our thanks and feel thankful for waves. Mind you, for some of us, no thanks are required. Simply doing the good deed is reward enough. Those would be the saints among us. Too bad more of us are not like that, but then we’d all be saints and who would we look up to? And who would we look down at?

Manotick Oktoberfest brings traditional fun and food

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to wait until October to enjoy authentic German food, froth and frolicking. The Manotick Lions will host their inaugural Oktoberfest on Saturday, Sept. 15. Beginning at 5:30 p.m. at the Manotick Curling Club, Germans and German appreciators can enjoy traditional knackwurst, sauerkraut and hot potato salad while dancing the night away with the help of a 20-piece German band. Event organizer Kris Schulz said the event is a change from the annual murder mysteries the Lions usually hold in the fall, and she hopes it will encourage more people to come out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just something different. We just thought we needed a change,â&#x20AC;? she said.

They chose a date in September, she said, because the ice goes into the curling rink in early October.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just something different. We just thought we needed a change. KRIS SCHULZ, MANOTICK LIONS

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was the latest we could do it,â&#x20AC;? she said. The family-friendly event will serve food and drinks â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including beer and wine - between 6 and 10 p.m. and will invite everyone to take a twirl around the dance floor. The Ottawa Rube, a 20piece traditional German band, will keep the oom-pah-pah going all evening, Shulz said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are pretty phenomenal. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be dressed in the Ger-

man outfits, too,â&#x20AC;? she said. Shulz said the Lions have already sold about 100 tickets, and expect to sell another hundred before the event on Sept. 15. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a lot of fun,â&#x20AC;? she said, noting that if the Lions get good feedback this year they will host the party again next fall. Tickets are $30 for adults and include dinner and one free drink. Tickets are $15 for kids ages seven to 18. Kids under six can come for free. Most of the proceeds will go the Manotick Lions to support their programming, and 25 per cent of earnings will be given to the curling club. Tickets are available through the Lions and at OfficePro.

South Ottawa Race Day hopes to end brain cancer forever Event for Greely mom takes on fight for Riverside South child

EMC news – The brain cancer battles of two Steve MacLean Public School members – one a 38-year-old mother who lost her battle last summer, the other a Grade 2 student currently fighting for her life – have inspired an entire community to find a cure. Greely resident Heather Geddie was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumour in 2009, and fought for two years until she passed away in July 2011. Two of her three children, then aged 9 and 15, had attended Steve MacLean Public School in Riverside South. A group of parents from the school were so inspired by Geddie’s positive attitude that after her death they decided to host the South Ottawa Race Day, which will fundraise for brain cancer research at the Rideau Carleton Raceway on Sat. Sept. 29. But while planning for the big event, the community received a second blow when another Steve MacLean family discovered their daughter Sofia has an inoperable brain tumour. She would have been going into Grade 2 this year, but is instead fighting her disease at CHEO. The race day will include a two-kilometre family walk/ run, a five-km walk/run, a 10km route and a half marathon or half marathon relay through rural Ottawa South. A free barbecue, a children’s corner provided by the Manotick co-operative nursery school and speeches from Geddie’s family will take place after the races are all finished. But it’s not just the small organizing group that has come together, said co-organizer Karen Sinclair. Businesses, dance studios, students and parents who never met Geddie or Sofia have jumped on board to raise funds and awareness. Dance Roots studio choreographed an awareness flash mob at the school last June, and a ladies’ night fundraiser in February sold out more than 400 tickets in just a few days. A group of eight-yearold girls sold $166 worth of

lemonade in August, and on Sat. Sept. 15 the Broadway’s on Earl Armstrong Road will host a live band fundraiser for Sofia, which will contribute to the race day’s totals. “It’s amazing how interwoven this has become,” Sinclair said.

She was always looking on the bright side and thinking of how to help people. We wanted to keep that positive outlook going. KAREN SINCLAIR

Geddie was an enthusiastic athlete, and Sinclair, who was close to Geddie, said it made sense to pair their fundraising efforts with something active. Adding Sofia’s cause to the banner has only served as a poignant reminder that brain cancer is prevalent everywhere, she said. Sinclair said the group hopes to raise $40,000, which the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation’s board of directors will help direct to a worthy brain cancer research project. Fellow organizer Chris Hill, who didn’t know Geddie but was a parent at Steve MacLean, said he was motivated by her positive attitude and the community’s response during her illness. He said the event will help people grieve her loss and celebrate her life while helping to end cancer. “I think people wanted an outlet to express their grief and express their inspiration,” he said. Geddie was born in Nova Scotia but grew up in Kanata, where she graduated from the Earl of March Secondary School. She studied Recreational Marine Management at St. Lawrence College in Kingston and then worked for two years at a small shipyard before moving back to Kanata in 1997. A great lover of sports, Geddie spent the last eight years of her life in Greely where she focused on family

activities including playing tennis, spending time at the cottage in Calabogie and skiing at the Peaks, according to her biography on She and her family also developed strong ties to the church community in Manotick, and her husband Kevin will perform with the Manotick Village Singers on the race day. Her children Breanna, Ryan, and Colin will all take part in the event, and her parents will talk to the crowds about their daughter’s fight. Sinclair said Geddie remained positive throughout her entire illness, and was always thinking of others before herself. “She honestly never said a bad word about anybody, she was always looking on the bright side and thinking of how to help people,” Sinclair said. “We wanted to keep that positive outlook going.” For more information or to register for the event visit


Riverside South resident Karen Sinclair holds a photo of her friend Heather Geddie, who died from a brain tumour last summer. Sinclair and three other parents from Steve MacLean Public School will host a fundraising race day in her memory on Sept. 29. R0011608154_0913

Clarification: OLG review Staff

In the article “Province’s auditor general to review OLG’s casino plan” published on page 1 in the Manotick EMC on Sept. 6, it was incor-

rectly stated that MPPs voted to have the auditor general review the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Commission’s plans. In fact, MPPs only voted to ask the auditor general to

consider reviewing the plans. According to OLG spokesperson Tony Bitonti the auditor general’s decision has not yet been made on this request.


Two Ottawa youth, Sara Minaeian of Nepean, left, and Ahmad Hussein of Greenboro, far right, help summit chairman Coun. Mathieu Fleury, second from left, and Mayor Jim Watson, second from right, reveal a logo for the upcoming Youth Summit Sept. 6.

Youth to get their say at city hall

EMC news - Mayor Jim Watson wants everyone from street kids to student council presidents to participate in the city’s youth summit. Watson said he is always inspired by young people and he hopes the city can leverage their opinions to influence how the city makes decisions. The event on Oct. 12 will invite 200 young people between the ages of 16 and 25 to city hall for speakers, discussions and workshops. But event chairman Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury invited all the city’s youths to watch the webcast on “My goal is to give street kids and student council presidents and everyone in between a chance to address the shortcomings of the city,” Watson said during a launch event at Operation Come Home in Centretown on Sept. 6. “This is not going to be a monologue. It’s going to be a dialogue between youth and city council.” The day-long event was inspired by the success of last year’s senior’s summit, Watson said when he announced the event earlier this year. The Older Adult Plan and the upcoming Older Adult Action Plan were informed by the senior’s summit. Similarly, Fleury said the youth summit will lead to five to

10 tangible initiatives the city can undertake to make Ottawa more youth friendly. The youth summit will also feature a slew of mentors to share with young people how they charted their course to success. That list includes the keynote speaker, David Hale, founder of Social Group, a digital, mobile and social marketing strategy firm. He also sits on the Ottawa Community Loan Fund board and CHEO’s social media committee. The summit is co-organized by other local organizations, including Child and Youth Friendly Ottawa (CAYFO), which is running a photo contest in the lead-up to the Oct. 12 summit. Youth Pic Ottawa asks young residents to show off “their Ottawa.” “What is your Ottawa and what makes it youth friendly?” asked Mandi Duhamel of CAYFO. Go to to submit your digital photo and a short description of why it represents the city and what makes the city youth friendly. Submissions will be accepted until midnight on Sept. 28. The photos will be displayed during the Youth Summit. Two local youth already had a chance to get involved by designing the logo for the event. Greenboro resident Ahmad Hussein came up with the concept and Nepean resident Sara Minaeian refined it into the final product. The logo depicts a mountain surrounded

by a border that mimics the city’s “O” logo. “It defines how youth will be the base of the summit,” said Minaeian, who attends Colonel By Secondary School in Beacon Hill North. “The three peaks show how the youth, seniors and adults in the city can connect,” added Hussein. Registration is limited. Youth can register now at

one year.

Manotick artist hopes to help Rideau St. image Residents get a sneak peek at public art ideas Laura Mueller

EMC news - Creating a conversation between the two ends of Rideau Street was a main theme of the public art pieces proposed for the downtown thoroughfare. As part of Ottawa’s One Per Cent for Art program, the city will spend approximately $135,000 to install outdoor artworks along Rideau after it is reconstructed from Dalhousie Street to the Cummings Bridge over this year and next. Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury said he is a supporter of the city’s public art program. “It adds some cultural, visual pieces to the street,” he said. “We always complain that there is too much concrete and streets are too heavy on cement,” Fleury said. “With the addition of tree planters and other (things), you’re able to really … beautify the street.” The city asked artists to submit proposals for art that could unify the street, from the “downtown Rideau,” considered the urban theatre, fashion and arts district, and “uptown Rideau,” the eastern portions of residential Lowertown and Sandy Hill and where the street meets the Rideau River. Four finalists, who each received a honourarium of $2,500, showed off their designs during an open house at the Rideau Street library branch on Sept. 5. Manotick resident David Watson said his lifelong affinity for trees and their unique situation in urban environments was the inspiration for his proposal.

Canada’s Economic Action Plan It is stormy waters in the world today. Across Europe and the United States, millions go without work. Those who do work face a lifetime of crippling taxation to pay for the entitlements of their countrymen and the debts of their governments. Canada by contrast is strong. Many believe that the 2008 US financial collapse and recession were the result of irresponsible behaviour by business and banks. In fact, this behaviour was merely the symptom. The illness was massive government intervention to turn the mortgage business into a social program. The government encouraged millions of Americans to spend money they did not have on homes they could not afford, using loans they could never repay. It then gave them a tax incentive never to repay it by allowing them to write off their mortgage interest. The bigger the mortgage debt, the lower the taxes. The U.S. government debt is now bigger than the entire American economy and one in five American households had mortgages that were bigger than the value of their homes. LAURA MUELLER/METROLAND

Manotick resident David Watson proposed three tree-like bronze sculptures along Rideau Street as part of a call for public art ideas. Watson designed three rectangular columns, each about 2.5- to three-metres tall and cast in bronze. The individually designed columns would have unique markings and a square base that would reflect the grate and interlock pavement settings that are often used to contain street trees. The installation is a balance between “reason and

spirit,” Watson said; “reason” representing the rigid setting that contains the trees in a harsh urban environment, and “spirit” being the life force of trees and nature that people connect with. “In the city, everything is a concrete jungle,” Watson said. “I’m blown away by the symbolism (of street trees). It could be positive. It could be negative.”

That’s were the element of irony comes in, Watson said. “It’s the irony of a free-spirited tree being reined in by the reason of the city,” he said. Comments gathered at the open house were submitted to the public art selection panel to help inform the panelists’ decision. The winner of the competition will be revealed within the next two weeks.

Mark Steyn points out, according to the congressional budget office, that by 2020 the United States government will be spending more annually on debt interest than the total combined military budgets of China, Britain, France, Russia, Japan, Germany, Saudi Arabia, India, Italy, South Korea, Brazil, Canada, Australia, Spain, Turkey and Israel. Yet if America is jogging off the debt cliff, Europe is sprinting. The European welfare state borrows on taxes to give people stuff they have not earned. Standard and Poor’s has downgraded French and Austrian government debt and has reduced the ratings of seven other countries in the Euro currency block. Because no one will lend their own money, the European Central Bank must step up and lend 150 billion Euro of other people’s money. Thank goodness, the EU has a bailout fund to prevent government defaults. Too bad Standard and Poor’s has downgraded that bailout fund, so soon the bailout fund will need a bailout. Margaret Thatcher pointed out that the problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money. We call that a “sovereign debt crisis”.

Thank You for Choosing Health.

I describe this humiliating American and European experiment with the welfare state because it is precisely the same experiment the opposition and its union bosses wish to impose on Canada. We know where it leads. Everyone takes and nobody makes. Work does not pay and indulgence does not cost. Money is free and money is worthless.


our contributions to Healthpartners, through the GCWCC campaign, help to save lives, fund groundbreaking research, and provide support to Canadians in every community who are dealing with life-changing illnesses.

Canada is one of the greatest success stories of human history precisely because our leaders were practical and smart. From the beginning, they understood the basic rules of success: people should work hard, pay their bills, spend only what they have and let free people do the rest. More freedom meant less government. Low-cost government meant a low-tax nation. Then, as now, Canada’s low-tax system worked. In the first 20 years of the 20th century our population grew by an unprecedented two-thirds, the wheat yields in the Prairies by 500% and exports more than doubled.

Thank you for helping us help Canadians.

Today we have an economic action plan based on our history. To stay strong, Canada must never repeat the mistakes of Europe and the United States and we must instead focus on what Canada has already done right.

Blue sugar bowl was lacking sometimes

T Ottawa’s #1 Ranked

here was no doubt about it, Father needed a new suit. The only one he owned was threadbare, and even though he hadn’t grown an inch, the cuffs on the legs were above his ankles. No doubt because Mother had tried to wash it one Monday and now even the sleeves were too short. There was no getting around it. He needed a new suit, and the ad in the weekly Renfrew Mercury was just what the doctor ordered – three pieces for $14. Father said there was no money for such frivolity. Mother said going to the Lutheran Church on Sunday dressed like a tramp raised the purchase well above frivolity. I knew Mother had waited until the big wood box of hand-me-downs had come from Aunt Lizzie in Regina to make sure there wouldn’t be something suitable from Uncle Jack. But as always, whatever Uncle Jack once wore had to be severely altered before it would fit Father. Uncle Jack was about Father’s height, but there the similarity ended. My sister Audrey said he looked like a pineapple. I have no idea how she knew what a pineapple looked like, because I never knew one to come into the house, but I did know Uncle Jack was more round than long. His arms were huge and hung well below his hips, and it always looked like he was carrying a bag of grain under his jacket. Without altering the suit, you could put at least two of Father in it. Now Mother, when she moved to the farm out in Northcote, tried her best to master the old pedal Singer

(Mother) did well on simple things like clothes for Audrey and me, making aprons and even simple house dresses out of Dan River cotton, but when it came to trying to make Father fit into one of Uncle Jack’s suits, she failed miserably. when it came to trying to make Father fit into one of Uncle Jack’s suits, she failed miserably. It always ended up that the suits, after being taken apart, became jumpers or skirts for my sister and me. The Mercury had come in the middle of the week and Mother said there was just about enough money in the blue sugar bowl in the backto-the-wall cupboard to buy the suit. What was lacking would be made up when Mother peddled her eggs, butter and chickens on Saturday in Renfrew. So it was decided Saturday was the day Father would be getting his new $14 suit. The excitement ran high that week in our old log house in Northcote. That didn’t mean we could ease off on the workload.

Manotick EMC - Thursday, September 13, 2012

But you’d think we were all getting a new outfit, not just Father, as the day of this major purchase drew closer. Mother took the blue sugar bowl out of the cupboard a few days before we were to head into Renfrew. She dumped the coins out on the kitchen table with a couple crumpled $1 bills. Then she moved the money over to the top of the ice box and stacked the coins in little piles on top of the bills. The blue sugar bowl went back into the cupboard. She figured she’d have to sell at least four chickens, five or six pounds of butter, and six dozen eggs to make up the difference between what was sitting on the ice-box and what the suit would cost. The day before we were to head into Renfrew, just before we were to sit down to eat at noon, Father came into the

New urgent care centre opens in Barrhaven

OSU is very proud of this year’s recipients and wished them the club’s best wishes for their future.


Chores were done as usual morning and night in the barns and Mother made sure my sister Audrey and I kept up with what was expected of us in the house too.

kitchen with a long piece of harness in his hands. He stood silently at the back door, never taking his eyes off it. “Broke. Just as I was putting it on Queenie. This is the piece I have fixed at least a dozen times. I’m afraid it won’t take another fixing. Can’t use the team without it.” He didn’t have to say any more. Mother went to the ice box and slid the coins into her hand with the bills. She looked at it for a minute and walked over to the door and handed it to Father. It would take just about all of it to replace the worn-out harness that should have been replaced long before. Horses and their harness meant survival back in the 1930s. A farmer couldn’t farm without either. Nothing more was said about the $14 suit. We went into Renfrew as usual on Saturday for our few supplies, bought only after Mother made her house calls along the back streets of the town with the cleaned chickens, butter and eggs. That day she had sticky buns as well. It would be a long time before the blue sugar bowl had in it enough for what Father called a frivolity like a new suit. Sunday morning saw him at the Lutheran Church the same old suit he had worn for years. • 613-225-0982 • 1516 Merivale Rd, Ottawa ON K2G 3J6 R0011591279

health care satellite run by the Kemptville District Hospital, which used its financial leverage to build the facility “in response to the obvious need in the outlying communities of its service area,” the statement said. The new urgent care centre promises shorter wait times, according to the centre’s administrator, Fred Casarramona. “Nimble and cost effective to operate, urgent care centres offer quick and efficient onestop service, taking the pressure off crowded ERs,” the press release said. For patients, this translates to a normal wait time of under one hour, rather than several hours. When operating at full capacity, the centre’s nine urgent care exam rooms will treat as many as 200 patients daily. The health complex on Greenbank also includes a new x-ray and ultrasound facility, not only to support the urgent care centre but also to

provide a bonus to the local community as it allows area physicians to refer their patients to the centre for an xray or an ultrasound, the statement said. The health centre also includes a number of specialist services, including surgeons specializing in colorectal procedures and adult hip and knee replacements. An obstetrics and gynecology specialist is on site, as well as a general practitioner with a specialty in endocrinology and metabolism. A diabetes education and support team provides individual and group support for patients with Type I and Type II diabetes. A full service travel medicine clinic will operate on Wednesday evenings beginning Sept. 19. The urgent care centre is open Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday opening hours will be announced later.

Easy-to-make ‘mother sauce’ has unlimited possibilities


f all the millions of recipes that exist in cookbooks, there’s one which is found more often than any other. It appears in cookbooks published around the world – from Eastern Ontario to France to Australia. You probably have it in at least one of the cookbooks in your kitchen right now. The recipe is for a “basic white sauce,” and it’s made with three ingredients – butter, flour and milk. In France, they call it “one of the great sauces,” but they also have another name for it – the “sauce mere” or “mother sauce.” And that’s probably the best name for this sauce because it’s the starting point for so many different recipes. It can be flavoured with cheese, herbs, mustard or wine, and served over vegetables, meat, poultry or fish. Although the basic white sauce has been used in both home and professional kitchens for years, it became a lot simpler to make with the introduction of the microwave oven. The recipe that follows is for creamed salmon on toast, a convenient and quick supper dish. It starts with a medium white sauce and you can use

PAT TREW Food ‘n’ Stuff this basic sauce recipe for any other dish that calls for it. The microwave technique for cooking it is explained stepby-step. CREAMED SALMON ON TOAST

• 2 tbsp. butter or margarine • 2 tbsp. flour • 2 cups milk • 1/2 tsp. butter or margarine • 1/2 cup frozen peas • 1/2 medium onion, chopped • 2 cans (213 gram) salmon, drained • salt, pepper to taste Use a microwave-safe bowl or a measuring cup that holds four cups. In the bowl, melt two tbsp butter or margarine on high for 40 to 50 seconds. Stir in the flour until it forms a smooth paste. There’s no need to cook this mixture. Add the milk all at once and stir well. Microwave on

high, uncovered, for four to five minutes. During this time, stir the sauce once every minute, scraping around the bottom of the bowl to mix in all the flour paste. When the sauce is slightly thickened, cook it one to two minutes longer on high. This time, stir the sauce every 30 seconds to prevent lumps from forming and the sauce from boiling over. The sauce is done when it’s thickened and bubbly. If you’re making creamed salmon on toast, place the 1/2 tsp. butter, frozen peas and onion in a small microwavesafe dish. Cover and cook on high for two minutes. Stir the onion mixture and the salmon into the white sauce. Cook on high for one to two minutes longer, stirring every 30 seconds, to heat the salmon. To serve, spoon over toast. Use one or two pieces of toast per person. Serves four.

Sometimes you just have to get your hands dirty Everyone knows the creative process can be rewarding and fulfilling for adults without being messy. But, let’s face it: sometime getting your hands dirty is half the fun. It’s not just for kids anymore. Whether you want your creativity to be mucky and yucky, or clean and pristine, there is bound to be something interesting near you listed in the City of Ottawa’s Recreation eGuide available at There is probably no better way to make a mess than through pottery. Artists at the Nepean Visual Arts Centre produce more than 50,000 pieces of art each year. This year, some of them can be yours. Think about Discovering Your Voice in Clay, Sculptural Handbuilding or maybe a Wheel and Hanbuilding Combo. For a splash of colour in your work area there are painting classes of various media offered across the city. Whether you are a beginner or an expert, you can work with oil, acrylic, watercolour or mixed media, explore abstract expression or classic portraiture. Does Canvas and Cocktails sound appealing? For something artistic and practical, learn to make a table, tray or mirror frame mosaic. Using stained glass tailored to suit the individual (beginner or improver), learn about techniques and materials and take home the completed project of your choice.

If you would like to eat your art, there are cooking classes available for young and old alike. Classes involving sushi, phyllo pastry and wine are on the menu, with cake decorating for dessert. Don’t worry, if you really want to keep your hands clean while being creative, there are several classes available across the city and in your neighbourhood that involve drawing, sketching, calligraphy and creative writing. The art of photography, which used to be messy, may have gone digital in recent years, but there are still plenty of opportunities to explore this medium in City classes. Get an introduction to the medium, sharpen your skills or simply learn how to Take Your Camera for a Walk. Fall Classes are starting now!

City waives cost for Bridge Street traffic management plan Laura Mueller

EMC news - A Manotick seniors’ home developer won’t have to pay $240,000 to keep traffic flowing on Bridge Street. The city had said a community-led traffic management plan to keep both lanes open during construction would cost $500 to $600 a day for the 16-month project. That left the builder, Princiotta Developments, with a choice between paying the hefty fee to save Manotick from traffic headaches, or resort to congestioncausing lane closures at no cost. Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt was able to work out a compromise with the support of his fellow councillors on the agriculture and rural affairs committee on Sept. 6. The campaign to waive the fee was led by the Manotick Village Community Association, which called on the city to waive the fee because its plan so clearly benefits the community, said association president Klaus Beltzner. Beltzner had argued that Princiotti cannot be expected

to pay the extra funds when a free alternative exists, even if it will negatively impact traffic for Manotick, Barrhaven and Riverside South residents who rely on the bridge to get across the Rideau River. “What with the delays in completing the Strandherd Bridge there is no alternative crossing for most people to consider and we just need to get this in place quickly,” he said. “Otherwise, we will be having major traffic back-ups that are much longer than our normal all day and peak period congestion experiences.” The amount of money waived is irrelevant, Moffatt said, because it is not revenue the city was anticipating anyway. The plan shifts both lanes of traffic south, keeping them narrow, but flowing. Meanwhile, the shift would create much-needed room for Princiotta’s construction vehicles to park along the north side of the road and sidewalk. The community, councillor, developer and emergency services all support the traffic management plan. With files from Emma Jackson

Poverty report ranks Ontario last in Canada

report reads, â&#x20AC;&#x153;600,000 Ontario families find their incomes stalled or falling behind, while the richest 10 per cent gallop away with the bounty from the sustained period of economic growth stretching from the mid-1900s to 2008.â&#x20AC;? The report found that: * 40 per cent of Ontarians, 600,000 families, are struggling with incomes that are stagnant or declining; * Ontario funds all of its social programs, including health care to education, at the


EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ontario is dead last among provinces when it comes to funding social programs, a new report revealed. An Ontario-wide coalition of almost 100 groups and organizations, called Ontario Common Front, examines growing inequity. On Aug. 29 it released Falling Behind: Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s backslide into widening inequity,

growing poverty and cuts to social programs. Despite having among the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most highly educated workers, an abundance of natural resources, and an industrial base, the report shows that Ontario is falling behind the rest of Canada in terms of growing poverty, increasing inequity and flagging financial support for public services. It blames choices made by governments, not international economic trends, for the downward spiral. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Today,â&#x20AC;? the

lowest rate in Canada; * While poverty rates fell in five provinces, Ontario had the second highest increase in poverty rates and intensity, leaving 393,000 children in poverty (one in seven); * Ontarians pay the highest school fees, out-of-pocket health care fees and tuition fees in the country while leading the nation in cuts to corporate and income taxes. It blames both the Liberal and Progressive Conservative governments for prioritizing tax cuts for the wealthy over equality-creating public programs. The report tracks the decline with examples such as: the average CEO takes home 250 times the income of the average Canadian, while a generation ago that ratio was 25 times the average. Morgan Goddard is the NDP riding association president for Carleton-Mississippi Mills. He said there is little difference between the Liberals and PCs when it comes to spending priorities. Both believe in the myth of â&#x20AC;&#x153;austerityâ&#x20AC;? meant to convince the middle and working classes to give up more just as the wealthiest take even more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Austerity measures are not working; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s causing greater poverty, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just not right,â&#x20AC;? Goddard said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always easy to blame

the poor.â&#x20AC;? He noted that Kanata is one of the wealthiest areas of the country. But even here personal debt is piling up and two-income families are no further ahead than the one income families of the 1960s and 1970s. Goddard said the reality of trickledown economics â&#x20AC;&#x201C; introduced by Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan during the early 1980s - is that kids get neglected because parents are working longer hours, communities suffer because fewer people can volunteer their time, and ecological and financial debt is loaded onto future generations. In West Carleton, where Goddard lives, poverty can be masked somewhat. But the reality is many people are couch surfing and using the emergency food cupboard like never before. He said the solution is to shift the burden away from the working and middle class to restoring a balance with the wealthiest. Increasing the income tax rate by one per cent of those making over $500,000 per year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; about 30,000 people in Ontario â&#x20AC;&#x201C; would â&#x20AC;&#x153;cover everything missing on social spending,â&#x20AC;? he added. However, Goddard admits there are plenty of catchy slogans and false arguments that convince poor people they de-


serve to be poor. There is the â&#x20AC;&#x153;rich people have earned their wealthâ&#x20AC;? argument which often isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t true because of inheritance laws. There is the â&#x20AC;&#x153;rich people create jobsâ&#x20AC;? argument which isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t borne out by statistics showing most jobs are created by small and medium sized businesses. There is the â&#x20AC;&#x153;government canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do anything rightâ&#x20AC;? argument which blames civil servants rather than politicians who serve power elites instead of the majority of voters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mostly itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that people are willing to believe what is convenient. If they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to give money to the poor, it can be as simple as greed,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a false self-interest.â&#x20AC;? Ontario Health Coalition director Natalie Mehra, primary author of the report, said the province is on a five-year plan to cut public sector jobs and services that will worsen the situation for everyone. She said Ontario residents are paying for the current shortfall in â&#x20AC;&#x153;hundreds of ways,â&#x20AC;? from the highest tuition and school fees, the highest proportion of out-of-pocket health care costs, a burgeoning array of user fees, and thousands of families wait years for support for children with disabilities.

Ottawa-based goalball team faces heartbreak By Dan Plouffe

tournament 2-1 to Sweden, but rebounded to knock off Australia 3-1, and then Japan 2-1. A victory over the U.S. would give them first place in their pool â&#x20AC;&#x201C; otherwise it was likely theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d face powerhouse China in the playoff round. The game was scoreless the whole way through, but with under two seconds left, Nancy Morin fired a shot home down the sideline to give Canada the 1-0 victory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Americans â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we always play a good game against them,â&#x20AC;? noted a beaming Amy Kneebone, Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top scorer at the tournament with four goals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was unbelievable. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m speechless from it. Scoring with two seconds left, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do anything else but smile.â&#x20AC;? The next day, it was crushing despair.

Whitney Bogart scored midway through the second half to give Canada a 1-0 advantage in their quarter-final elimination match against Finland, but this time it was their opponents that scored a late marker. In â&#x20AC;&#x153;golden goalâ&#x20AC;? overtime (as they call it in Britain), Katja Heikkinen bounced a shot just above Kneebone, who got a piece of the ball but neither she or her teammates could get to the ball quickly enough to stop it from going over the goal line. It was the abrupt end to the Canadiansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; podium dreams, after training together daily in Ottawa for the majority of 2012 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the first time the team has ever been able to centralize leading up to a Paralympic Games, which was made pos-

sible thanks to Own The Podium funding. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was really tough,â&#x20AC;? said coach Janice Dawson, adding that her girls played well throughout the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought they did really well. We had a bit of shaky start but we just got stronger as we went on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of course I think we deserved a better fate. The girls trained so hard and they wanted it so badly, but the same can be said for any team thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s here.â&#x20AC;? Whether the squad will return to Ottawa as a group any time soon is unclear. The immediate plan was for everyone to go home after the Games, take time to regroup and plan for the future.Team members Kneebone, Bogart, Jill MacSween and Cassie Orgeles all

EMC sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The tension in the Copper Box gymnasium was only elevated by the fact their sport must be played in complete silence so the players with visual impairments can hear the small bell ring inside the ball when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rolled. Tied in the final moments, the Ottawa-based Canadian womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goalball team was involved in similar high-stakes matches on back-to-back days at the London 2012 Paralympic Games. But the emotions they felt when the deciding goals were scored were polar opposites. The first day, it was elation. Prior to the Tuesday, Sept. 4 contest, the Canadians had dropped their first game of the

Team takes up goalball challenge Continued from page 24

Living in close quarters at the Athletes Village was nothing new for the team. Five of the six team members lived together in the same apartment building at Prince of Wales and Meadowlands, while Orgeles was less than two blocks away. “We spent a lot of time together,” Bogart smiled, noting most of their downtime at the Paralympics was spent in their rooms, catching up on TV shows such as Big Brother and Hell’s Kitchen. “We were watching funny

movies to pass the time and stay relaxed.” March-in for Opening Ceremonies was a huge highlight for the players, along with getting to perform in front of a close-to-soldout crowd larger than 80 – the amount Kneebone estimated was their previous non-Paralympics high. Having friends and family in the stands was the most special part in her view. “It was the first time they’ve really got to see us play internationally, so I’m really happy we were able to put a show on for them,” noted the 22-year-

old. There was unquestionably a family feel to the tight-knit group. And now for two of the players, they will soon be family for real. Bogart’s brother proposed to Kneebone shortly before they took off for London, and the couple are now engaged to be married, although a date has yet to be established. “While we’re here, we’re focused on goalball,” Bogart highlighted. “But as soon as we’re done, we get to plan a wedding!”

Ottawa & Area - Buying a home is a major investment no matter which way you look at it. But for many homebuyers, it’s an even more expensive process than it needs to be because many fall prey to at least a few of the many common and costly mistakes which trap them into either paying too much for the home they want, or losing their dream home to another buyer or, worse, buying the wrong home for their needs. A systemized approach to the home buying process can help you steer clear of these common traps, allowing you to not only cut costs, but also buy the home that’s best for you.

Aries, you will bring creativity and originality to a project at work this week. Working with people comes easy to you, so put your ingenuity to good use. Taurus, you are entering a creative phase and others will admire and appreciate your work. But don’t allow the extra attention to go to your head. Be humble at every turn. There are plenty of opportunities for communicating your ideas this week, Gemini. Expect quite a few meetings and other social occasions where you can discuss things with others. Cancer, you have a basic idea of how you want to handle your finances, but you are open to suggestions, too. Consult with a professional if you are considering making major changes.

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.
