EMC news - The French public school board for eastern Ontario got a cash infusion on Jan. 17 that will see an expansion at a Barrhaven school. Michaëlle Jean French public elementary school in Barrhaven is bursting at the seams. When the school opened in 2007, there were only 150 children, and now there are more than 500 said principal Martine Charbonneau. The province announced that it will fund the construction of an additional 14-classroom module to add more student capacity. Construction is set to begin in March. Funds are also being allocated to build a new elementary school in Riverside South. The two projects will total $13 million and will deal with a steady increase of students moving to the French public board. “We would like to thank the parents for their passion in advocating to secure this funding,” said Denis Chartrand, a vice-president with the board. He added that once schools are built they will quickly fill up as students move from immersion programs. The board has experienced a 4.5 per cent growth in student enrolment over the past year, which Chartrand said he owes to Ontario parents understanding the importance of bilingualism.

Equestrian park proposal accepted by NCC Plan will upgrade Nepean facility Jennifer McIntosh

EMC news - The National Capital Commission is placing its bets on a proposal to save a local equestrian park. The Wesley Clover Foundation, a charitable organization started by Kanata high tech mogul Terry Matthews, submitted a proposal to the commission in July 2012 after the city’s finance and economic development committee voted to stop running the Nepean National Equestrian Park on Corkstown Road. The commission announced on Jan. 17 it would be accepting the proposal following the conclusion of a requests for ex-

pressions of interest process. The two parties are now working to put a lease in place and get all the approvals necessary. A press release from the NCC said the proposal would require an amendment to the Greenbelt Master Plan to allow for the sports fields and forest school. The amendment was to be considered by their board of directors on Jan. 23. Jean-Francois Trépanier, chief executive officer for the NCC said the plan is in line with the commission’s objectives. “The NCC is pleased to announce such an ambitious initiative for this Greenbelt facility,” he said in a press release. The park’s future as a city-operated facility was questioned seven years ago and was given a reprieve with the direction that it needed to operate on a cost-recovery basis. Bay Coun. Mark Taylor said in July that national competitions offer economic benefit to the city, but two of the

major shows that used to come to the park weren’t coming anymore. The facility needed a $1.2-million upgrade and had operated at a loss for the last six years. The proposal from the foundation includes a: • Trail riding program. • The Ian Millar Horsemanship Centre to attract high-level equestrian competitions. • Forest school for children up to age six to learn about the outdoors. • An outdoor recreation area including, seven full-size soccer pitches. • Space for non-equestrian events, including the National Capital Flower Show, the National Capital Harvest Festival and an annual curling competition modeled after the HOPE Volleyball Festival.

Program of therapeutic riding will continue Continued from page 1

The proposal also includes the continued operation of a therapeutic riding program – something residents and organizations spoke passionately about in pleas during a July 11 city council meeting. Kris Sherry, one of the organizers for Dressage at the Park, a competition held at the park every August, said the event was a fundraiser for the program. “We raise money for saddle cushions, tack and other supplies for the therapeutic riding program. If we aren’t raising money for that, I am not sure why we would hold the competition,” she said, following the news that the city would no longer be running the park. In July, Sherry said she’s not sure if the new owners would allow the competition to take place at the park and there is no other facility in the city that could accommodate more than two rings. “We may be able to have a smaller competition somewhere else,” she said. Karen Sparks, executive director for the foundation, said the proposal was aimed at promoting equestrianism in the city and making it accessible. “We are very excited to get going,” she said. “The WCF is hoping to make a big impact in the community and this will be our flagship project.”


Plans filed with the NCC last July show a proposal to remake the Nepean National Capital Equestrian Park. The commission has selected the Wesley Clover Foundation proposal. Wesley Clover is a charitable organization started by Kanata high tech mogul Terry Matthews.

Enrolment to be capped at 600 Steve Desroches Deputy Mayor Councillor, Gloucester-South Nepean

Continued from page1

There are currently 14 portables at Michaëlle Jean school, and there will still be some even after the expansion is complete. Area trustee Linda Savard said the school will probably cap enrolment at 600 before the board pushes to add another school in the Barrhaven area. “We don’t want to make it too big because then the demographic could change and we will need a high school,” she said. “We wouldn’t want to have an elementary school with empty classrooms.” Savard said good planning and the upswing in demand for a francophone education have been good things for the board. The new school in Riverside South is expected to open in 2016 and will offer junior kindergarten to Grade 6 classes. Madeleine Meilleur, the provincial minister responsible for francophone affairs said the funds will provide safe and modern places for Ontario students to learn. “I am pleased that the students and families in Riverside South and at Michaëlle Jean public school will benefit from our investments aimed at providing better school buildings,” she said. “We know that when students are in good learning environments they can focus on their learning.”

CITY TO HELP VETERANS CONNECT WITH PROGRAMS AND SERVICES I was pleased that City Council approved my motion calling for city staff to work with the Royal Canadian Legion and Veterans Affairs Canada to enhance information sharing, referrals, and connection to social and employment services in the Ottawa area that are available and often underutilized by veterans. In my years as a councillor, I have met veterans who are unaware that they may be eligible for programs such as pensions, allowances, and home visits. As well, the city has the means to help to connect homeless veterans to support and benefits from the federal government and Royal Canadian Legion. I think it is important to honour and remember the efforts and sacrifices of our veterans year round, and believe that introducing them to the programs and services already available to them is the first step in showing our continued appreciation.

DONATION TO RIDEAU VALLEY CONSERVATION AUTHORITY I am happy to announce that the SHELL FuellingChange Program recently donated $50,000 to finance the “Healthy Streams, Natural Shorelines” project in the Rideau watershed. This money will help improve water quality, enhance fish and wildlife habitat, and engage the community towards pride in building resilience into their local watercourses. I would like to thank members of the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority and Jason Kelly, Chair of the Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation, for their work in promoting the online voting process for this local project in a nationwide competition.

As you may have noticed, work on Jockvale Road has slowed for the winter months. The completion of the west bridge structure is required before work can resume on the road widening project and without favourable (warm) consistent weather temperatures, the quality of the concrete cannot be maintained. Rest assured, the Contractor will return in the spring of 2013 to complete the forming and pouring of the west Jock River bridge structure deck.

Regardless of this delay, the project is still anticipated to be substantially completed by the end of 2013 as originally planned. It should be noted that a significant portion of the underground work has been completed on the east side of the right of way from Cambrian Road to Riverstone which will accelerate the construction of the east side of the roadway in Spring 2013.

At this time the traffic signals can only be turned on when it is safe to do so, i.e. when line painting is able to be completed, therefore the activation date has been weather dependent to allow for further work to be completed. It is anticipated that the signals will be installed before the end of the month. However, this is greatly dependant on the weather. I look forward to the completion of this important community project and will continue to provide updates through my website and columns.

Sherry Franklin, a representative of the Ontario Trillium Foundation congratulates Jewish Family Services and the Social Planning Council of Ottawa. The two agencies received more than $120,000 to help strengthen the work of other, smaller agencies do work in communities across the city.

Grant helps to strengthen local communities Trillium funding helps with programming for at-risk youth Jennifer McIntosh

EMC news - A grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation will help to provide programming for single parents, at-risk youth and seniors. The $122,000 grant was presented to the Social Planning Council of Ottawa and Jewish Family Services at the family services office on Carling Avenue on Jan. 15. The monies will be provided over two years to help with mentoring and support to Ottawa Somaliland community services, Canada Nepal Solidarity for Peace, Cooperation Integration Canada, La Coopérative Enseignants Pas à Pas and the Shia Moslem community. The grant will also provide seed funding to implement new programs for at-risk youth and single parents in Ottawa. Jewish Family Services director Mark Zarecki said the two larger agencies

could provide support in the setting up of boards and volunteer management.

I hope the partnership continues and we make a better city. HOWARD COHN SOCIAL PLANNING COUNCIL OF OTTAWA

“This is a great chance for us to work with smaller agencies in a way we haven’t been able to before,” Zarecki said, adding that another Trillium grant has helped increase revenues from their counselling services, allowing them to provide better services to low-income clients that can’t pay the fees. “Any time we get Trillium

funding it helps us to attain program goals,” he said. Bob Chiarelli, the MPP for Ottawa West-Nepean, made the announcement and said the organizations working in Ottawa’s communities are the glue that holds the city together. “I am pleased that with the help of this funding, our community partners will be able to enhance their services and continue to offer high-quality programs for families in Ottawa,” he said. Sherry Franklin, a representative of the Ontario Trillium Foundation, said the foundation gives out $120 million annually to projects that make better and more vibrant communities. Howard Cohen, from the Social Planning Council of Ottawa said the money will help new immigrants and teachers. “I hope the partnership continues and we make a better city,” he said.

City promotes recycling, seeks new ideas EMC news - Residents had a chance to weigh in on the city’s new waste-diversion program last week. The city held four recycling fairs at community centres in Barrhaven, Kanata, OrlĂŠans and Heron Gate Jan. 19. Residents were offered a pancake breakfast while they ďŹ lled out a questionnaire as well as picked up some handouts concerning waste-management strategies. Environment committee chairwoman, Maria McRae attended the fair in Heron Gate at the Jim Durrell Recreation Centre on Walkley Rd. “We are doing this because it’s interesting to see what is on people’s minds,â€? McRae said. “They (residents) have had three months to let us know how it has been going and we want to hear what they think about our long-term, waste-management strategies.â€? The questionnaire was available to ďŹ ll out on IPads at the fairs. McRae referred to herself as a champion when it comes to recycling and green bin use, and said as she continues to sort her garbage, which she has noticed the amount of packaging some food comes in. “At the end of two weeks, all I have is a garbage bag full of plastic packaging, it makes you think about what you are purchasing,â€? she said. Food packaging is one aspect the councillor said she is interested in receiving feedback. “I would like to see what the public has to say about packaging,â€? McRae said. “Should the city be dealing with businesses on packaging?â€? Aside from packaging concerns, other questions in the

Chair of the environment committee Maria McRae, right, said the city is looking for residents’ tips and reactions concerning the new recycling program. Four recycling fairs were held across the city on Jan. 19, including one at Jim Durrell Recreation Centre, 1265 Walkley Rd.

survey asked residents what they feel the city’s future role should be concerning waste management on a provincial and federal level, what residents feel is fair for services and households to pay concerning waste management provided by the city, the amount of waste a household provides and to what level residents are willing to commit regarding their own waste management and whether the city and businesses should form a partnership when it comes to waste management or whether businesses should take a more active role in waste management. REACHING FAMILIES

McRae said the fair were held on the early Saturday morning at local community centres to reach out to early morning hockey and skating families. McRae added that at one point the entire front foyer of the centre was ďŹ lled with hockey bags while families participated in the questionnaire and ate the pancakes. “It has been working out really well,â€? she said. Jarrett Chalmers and his two daughters, Landry and Chloe were one of those families who attended, in between hockey games. “One just played and we are waiting for the other to go on the ice,â€? Chalmers said. The three ate some pancakes and participated in the questionnaire as well as some of the kid-friendly activities. Chalmers said his family, they have been on the reuse, reduce and recycle path for quite some time. “We really saw no change when the city changed the garbage pick up,â€? he said. “We recycle everything.â€?

Jumping off the development merry-go-round


he challenges posed by development projects popping up across the city call for innovative responses, which is exactly what one Ottawa community association is doing. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something other community groups would be wise to take a long, hard look at as well. The idea, proposed by the Ottawa South Community Association, is to recruit members who have expertise

in land-use planning, architecture development and construction on the associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planning and development review committee, known as OSWatch. The committee is forced to deal with complex development applications, relying on a dozen or so members who may not have the necessary expertise or experience to craft a position on such proposals. This forces the committee to spend most of its energy

trying to understand and later fight unwanted applications instead of being proactive and encouraging desired development. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a familiar problem for the dozens of community associations across Ottawa and the result is costly and unproductive. The process begins with a development application. If community members donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like the proposed building, a number of meetings are held where the developer

outlines its plans, followed by a response â&#x20AC;&#x201C; usually negative â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from area residents. If the political pressure is strong enough, the ward councillor fights the application, sometimes over the objections of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planning staff. If city council rejects the application, the developer has the option of appealing to the Ontario Municipal Board. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where the real fun starts. The city doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly

have a stellar record opposing development supported by its own staff before the OMB. Case in point: the 2011 decision by the OMB to expand the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s urban boundary by 850 hectares, over the objections of council and at the cost of hundreds of thousand of dollars in legal fees. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help that the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position was at odds with its planning staff. Nobody enjoys the ride on this merry-go-round â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not

the city, the residents and not the developers, even if they ultimately win their case at the OMB. Wasted time. Wasted money. Old Ottawa South is hoping to get off this topsy-turvy ride and create a proactive development review process. By working with developers instead of automatically pegging them as the enemy, both parties can avoid many of the conflicts that often end up in the laps of the OMB. Compromise is often required, and that can only come following good communication and intelligent analysis.


Dreaming of a better Sparks Street ed, most of them seeming to involve moving planters around. None of them worked. And the attempt to lure tourists to Sparks Street has had an unintended consequence. Now the complaint is that you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find anything on the street that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t aimed at tourists. The latest proposal, one not put forward as a solution but as something worth trying, is to put a zip line, a kind of glorified rope slide, somewhere on the mall to attract thrill-seekers. Well, it might do that. But if it succeeds it will just bring zip line enthusiasts to the mall. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll zip and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll go home, unless there is something else to attract their attention. The same goes for another perennial dream â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a Sparks Street casino. People will come to the casino, stay in it and go home. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing for Sparks Street in that. The idea is not just to attract thrill-seekers and tourists to Sparks Street, but to attract people who live here, people who could decide to come downtown to shop instead of going to their nearest mall, who might decide to eat on Sparks rather than in the ByWard Market, who might want to hang out on a street where there is no traffic. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to believe this is impossible to achieve, yet it has been impossible to achieve for 46 years. The only thing that will save Sparks Street is a permanent constituency â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in other words, more people living downtown. And should there be apartments where there were once dark offices, those who live there would flock to Sparks Street, if it was open at night and if there were stores and clubs and restaurants of quality. These in turn might attract people who live away from the core. In the meantime, new options will be presented for your consideration. Markets and zip lines and new logos and more planters. Whatever option is chosen, one of them should not be reopening Sparks Street to traffic. Great cities all over the world have created pedestrian-friendly areas and many of them work really well. Cities that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have such areas wish they did. We would too.



parks Street looks pretty bedraggled these days. Mind you, some of that is just the way winter works on our city. The snow piles up, then it melts, revealing all of yesterdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s litter and dirt. But of course litter is not all thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bothering Sparks Street, a place that has never lived up to the high expectations placed on it when it opened as a pedestrian mall in 1966. Not that it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a pleasant place at times. In the warm weather, at lunch hour, hundreds of people enjoy the sun and the stroll and visiting with their friends. Tourists, down from Parliament Hill, grab a coffee or a souvenir. But, as many observers have noted over the years, the place is silent as a tomb after six oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;clock and more or less deserted on weekends. What happened? Well, the federal government happened. The government owns much of the real estate along Sparks and has not been helpful to merchants and would-be developers. At any given time, a number of merchants will have been displaced while Public Works renovates something or other. Even the most ardent planning advocate must be wondering if Sparks Street might have been better off with unbridled development. The other thing that happened was the Rideau Centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening in 1983. Not that Sparks Street was exactly thriving before that, but it thrived even less afterwards. Important merchants decamped for the new shopping centre and shoppers were attracted away from Sparks Street. After that grew the idea that Sparks Street needed fixing. Various plans were implement-

Residents talk land use for Barrhaven Zoning study aims for community consensus on planning Jennifer McIntosh

EMC news - Dozens of residents turned out to have their say on future uses for 10 properties in the area of Deerfox Drive and Woodroffe Avenue on Jan. 16. The city and Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder hosted a meeting as part of a zoning study at the Walter Baker Sports Centre. The properties are currently zoned development reserve, which is essentially a blank slate according to Harder. “It’s something we usually apply to greenfields in advance of development,” she said, adding interest from a developer in the past highlighted the need for community consensus on uses for the properties. She said the process differs from a spot zoning project on Greenbank Road in Keith Egli’s ward. “That’s kind of like a mini community design plan,” she said. “Here we are really starting with a blank slate.” Residents were asked to sit in groups and talk about potential uses for the properties. Staff was taking input on po-

tential uses, heights, setbacks and density. The next meeting is slated for Feb. 5. Harder said staff would take the input from residents and come back with

JAN HARDER a report on their recommendations. The goal is to get the zoning in line with the city’s official plan and have a roadmap for development of the area that fits with the community. Harder said she wasn’t surprised at the high turnout. “It’s near Woodroffe and Longfields Drive,” she said. “There’s great access to transit. It’s a target for intensification so we should be pre-

pared with a plan.” Harder took some heat at the meeting from a resident who accused her of working with the developers, but she said she focuses on the interests of the community first – even if that means the occasional compromise. “I think because I have a relationship with the developers, they listen to me when I say something isn’t acceptable,” Harder said. Harder said she doesn’t think the Feb. 5 meeting will be the last of the planning sessions. “I think it may take a while to get a consensus because there are so many different opinions,” she said. “But it’s a great example of the community working together.” The outcome of the zoning study will be a new zoning for the properties.

Desperately seeking a fitness regime BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse great. And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure my bones and muscles would love me to stretch myself in new ways, never mind the mental boost it would likely provide. But all that stretching and breathing? I wonder if I would get bored after a week or two. If I spit in the other direction â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you know, from my back door â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a ďŹ tness and dance studio with regular, fun aerobic classes like zumba. Everyone tells me this is a really enjoyable way to get your heart rate up. But at $16 per session, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s within my ďŹ nancial grasp. And then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this really cool place, nowhere near my house, in Gatineau, called PhysXtreme, where a former personal trainer helps whip you into shape by getting you to roll truck tires around and climb ďŹ reman poles and such. I have a neighbour that goes for the 6 a.m. workout. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s super ďŹ t and does mud-racing and all kinds of cool things with her muscular, ďŹ t body.

Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d never know she has two kids and sits in an ofďŹ ce all day. The idea of doing a non-traditional workout is extremely appealing, but I wonder how long it would be before I decided I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be bothered to drive my car to Gatineau twice a week before everyone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day begins. I was about to throw in the towel and give up the whole search when I discovered a new exercise regime that may have been designed for the almost middle-aged me. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s low-cost; it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t require me to go anywhere; I can do it as frequently as I want and I may not even have to sweat â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not for long, in any case. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called high-intensity interval training, or HIIT for short. A body of research around HIIT suggests that short periods of intense exercise may be as effective as lengthy workouts for some people. The kinesiology department at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ont., for ex-

ample, had test subjects do 30-second power pedalling on exercise bikes, interspersed with four minutes of relaxed pedalling. The pattern was repeated four to six times in a session for three sessions per week, a total of about 45 minutes of exercise over the course of the week. Similar studies conducted at universities across Britain and the United States have found this type of exercise may be as effective as a daily cardio

workout in reducing insulin and glucose levels, improving metabolism and, in some cases, increasing muscle gain. The only downside to HIIT is that it could cause major physical injury and/or kill you. Study results are inconclusive. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also evidence that it may not beneďŹ t people of certain genetic makeup, so short of having blood tests conducted to determine results, it may be all for naught. Still, I think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to

give it a try. As one friend pointed out the other day, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can commit to anything for 15 minutes, but thinking about doing something for an hour is really hard.â&#x20AC;? Yeah. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a big believer in baby steps. HIIT may just be my foray into extreme mud racing. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll let you know. In the meantime, I have to go upstairs and reďŹ ll my coffee. It may be the only physical stimulation I get today and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only 6 a.m.

Version1 - November 2, 1012



anuary is almost over, so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m starting to think about ďŹ nding a new exercise regime. I like to wait until everyone else has given up on their New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolutions before committing to anything. As I approach ofďŹ cial middle age, I realize that 2013 has to be the year I whip my pear-shaped, post-baby (times three) body into shape. And with all the articles about sitting being the latest epidemic â&#x20AC;&#x201C; sitting is the new smoking and all that â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I realize that sitting and smoking simultaneously is probably not the best way to go. So Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking for renewal. But as I look to deďŹ ne the new me â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the healthier, more ďŹ t me â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the almost middleaged me isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite sure where to begin. Besides the inherent psychological difďŹ culty in taking that ďŹ rst step, a big part of the problem is also that there are so many choices available. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m wary of committing to something ďŹ nancially before Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve taken careful time â&#x20AC;&#x201C; possibly over coffee and/or red wine, while sitting, of course â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to examine all the options. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great yoga studio, for example, spitting distance from my house with a $100-per-month unlimited yoga deal on now. It sounds

Art for the heart fundraiser set for Feb. 3 Annual show to raise funds for Ottawa Heart Institute Jennifer McIntosh

EMC news - The heart of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art community appears to be growing. An annual fundraiser for the Ottawa Heart Institute has grown out of its home at the Barrhaven Legion. Art for the Heart â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a fundraiser started by a group of nine local artists â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will be held at the Cedarhill Golf and Country Club on Feb. 3 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The event is in its third year and will host 21 artists from across the city said organizer Sylvia Summers-Martyn. Artists are coming from far and wide to sell their wares and help out a good cause. John Shea hails from Westport and portrays local heritage buildings in and around the Rideau lakes area. Jill Alexander, who lives in Arnprior, works in acrylic and mixed media to depict hockey players. Ann Gruchy from North Gower will also be there to show off some of her watercolours. Judi Miller, a textile artist from Kanata and a member of the Art for the Heart organizing committee, said a major selling point is that artists can donate a percentage of

the commission for the piece rather than the piece itself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a win-win,â&#x20AC;? she said. There is no cost for admission to the show and artists donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of their art to the heart institute. Volunteers for the institute will be on hand during the show to hand out information pamphlets and collect donations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we will top what we have fundraised in previous years simply because this is the biggest one yet,â&#x20AC;? said Summers-Martyn, who began taking applications for exhibitors at last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are starting to put Art for the Heart on the calendars,â&#x20AC;? she said. The group of artist organizers began work on this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event in the summer and quickly realized the space at the Barrhaven Legion â&#x20AC;&#x201C; where the last two shows were held â&#x20AC;&#x201C; wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hold them this year. While Summers-Martyn said she appreciated the past support of the Legion, she said the new space has a lot of perks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of parking, it is very accessible and they can have the Sunday breakfast while they are out at the show,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Community reps gear up for planning review gestion to more nebulous concepts like density targets and sustainability benchmarks, participants covered off what they see as the building blocks for a more liveable city. Infill was a common concern. Anna Cuylits from Old Ottawa South said her community would like to see rules that have more teeth with regards to things like building setbacks and height.

EMC news - How can we create a more liveable Ottawa? That’s the theme of an upcoming public consultation on how to rewrite the city’s Official Plan and the rest of its master plans for transportation, infrastructure, cycling and pedestrians –documents that set the stage for Ottawa’s development. The city is holding its first public meeting about the review on Jan. 29, but community association representatives got a head start on the issue when about 40 of them gathered for a brainstorming session at the Overbrook Community Centre on Jan. 10. The session was hosted by the Federation of Citizens Associations, a citywide group that represents a number of community associations. For the first time, the city invited the federation to send two representatives to sit on one of three consultation panels that will undertake the indepth consultation and review of the plans. “There was no such community panel in previous runarounds of the Official Plan,” said federation member and Glebe resident Bob Brocklebank, one of the people taking

than in 2009.” “We’re trying to build a new city and have some influence over that,” added Gary

Sealey, a federation member from the Kanata-Beaverbrook Community Association. From infill to traffic con-

In Old Ottawa South, one of the main concerns will be pushing for the Alta Vista transportation corridor to be completely removed from transportation plans. The corridor is a proposed road linking Lees Avenue to Ottawa Hospital’s General Campus. There was also some interest from John Verbaas of Action Sandy Hill in “making growth pay for itself” – finding ways for development charges to cover the true cost of building infrastructure

needed to support sprawling suburbs. Rural participants were concerned about how the city defines a “complete rural village.” “There’s an implication that they are incomplete,” said Ted Ross of the Manotick Village Community Association. No matter what actually ends up in the Official Plan and master plans, it will be important to ensure those ideas are put into practice. To that end, several community representatives suggested a need for a report card to measure the success or failure of the initiatives in the plans. Representatives from the federation will join the community panel; other panels will include a sponsors’ panel for the city councillors leading the project, as well as a panel for the development industry. The draft Official Plan amendments should be presented to the city’s planning committee in June. More public consultation will follow, with draft approval of the Official Plan itself expected in October. Council expects to adopt the updated Official Plan and the revised master plans for transportation, infrastructure, pedestrians and cycling in December of 2013 or January of 2014.

Human books to be on loan at library Jennifer McIntosh

EMC news - Ever wondered what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like to raise eight kids or compete in ultimate ďŹ ghting? Well the Ottawa Public Library can help you ďŹ nd out. As part of an initiative with the CBC, the library will offer human books for one day on Jan. 26. This is the second year the library has tried the program. Dorothy Jeffreys, co-ordinator of life-long learning with the library, said organizers have doubled the number of books available at the main library branch based on last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s demand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year we actually ran out of books, so we went from eight to 16 people, with six at the other branches,â&#x20AC;? she said. When a resident signs out a human book, they get 20 minutes of questions, and then the books get a 10-minute break. The program is part of a national human library project from Surrey, B.C. to St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, NL. The organizing committee for the Ottawa project started looking for potential books in the summer. The branches that will offer the program include:

â&#x20AC;˘ Alta Vista â&#x20AC;˘ Ruth E. Dickinson â&#x20AC;˘ North Gloucester â&#x20AC;˘ Main â&#x20AC;˘ Hazeldean One â&#x20AC;&#x153;bookâ&#x20AC;? at the Ruth E. Dickinson branch was a largegame hunter in Tanzania. Jeffreys said when he returned to Canada he â&#x20AC;&#x153;navigated the jungle of Parliament Hill as an MP.â&#x20AC;? At the North Gloucester branch, mixed martial arts ďŹ ghter Nick Denis will recount his tale of dropping out a PhD program in biochemistry to pursue a career in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. At the Hazeldean branch a blind octogenarian will talk about learning to live without sight in her 60s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She sees her vision loss as a gift and says she wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take her sight back if offered,â&#x20AC;? Jeffreys said, adding the book also cross country skis and kayaks. At the Alta Vista branch a mother of eight talks about how the little blue line telling her she was pregnant in her ďŹ rst year of law school changed her life. A bylaw ofďŹ cer who ran onto Highway 417 to stop a woman who was trying to kill herself will be available to lend at the main branch on Metcalfe Street.


Human â&#x20AC;&#x153;booksâ&#x20AC;? will be on loan at six branches of the Ottawa Public Library on Jan. 26. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We tend to generalize people, and the human book program really shows us our

misconceptions and breaks down stereotypes,â&#x20AC;? Jeffreys said.

Registration starts at the participating branches on Jan. 26 at 10:45 a.m. Resi-

dents can sign out one book at a time and then register for others based on availability.

Saga to hit Centrepointe stage

Paul Pa aul u De Dewar, MP - Ottawa Centre P Paul Dewar, MP | Député Ottawa Centre TTel: 613.946.8682 p w

When is the last time you had to pay extra to receive a bill?

Jennifer McIntosh

EMC news - Michael Sadler, the founder and lead singer for Saga said even though he was away from the band for four years, the tightknit group came together right away. “It felt like I had only been gone a couple of weeks,” he said. Sadler left the band in 2007 to take a break from the stress of long tours and to spend time with his family. In Sadler’s absence, one album was released in 2009 with his replacement, Rob Moratti. At the beginning of 2011, Sadler returned to Saga. The band, known for tunes like On the Loose, The Flyer and Scratching the Surface, will hit the stage at Centrepointe Theatre on Feb. 7 to promote the newest album 20/20. Sadler said the band’s fans will hear some new stuff at their third Canadian date to promote the album. “We have a really loyal fan base that has stood by us for decades,” he said. “There will be a mix of the old favourites and some new stuff.” With the new year, the band is starting to work on a new album, but Sadler said the writing is in very early stages. Founded in 1977, Saga is known for prominent guitar riffs, often in harmony with a synthesizer and complex keyboard arrangements. The band, which has toured 24 cities in Europe, has sold eight million albums world wide. Sadler said the band was last in Ottawa in 2007 and he

Recently you may have noticed a new fee has appeared on your monthly bills. This past year, many companies started charging you two dollars per month to keep receiving your bill by mail. Whether it be a telephone, internet, cable, utility company or a bank, it seems everywhere you look, someone is jumping on the “pay-to-pay” bandwagon and sticking consumers with the cost of doing business. You may be a loyal customer for years who has always received a bill in the mail, but now you’re being charged extra for it. These fees force you to pay to receive the bill, so you can then pay that bill. They’re making you pay, to pay. It’s not something I consider a privilege. My opposition colleagues and I are calling on the Conservative Government and its agencies to take action to stop pay-to-pay fees from impacting Canadians. Not only is this a new cost for consumers, but it disproportionately affects certain segments of the population. Many seniors don’t have a computer of their own, or prefer to receive bills the way we always have: by mail.


Saga will return to Ottawa in February and are set to hit the stage at the Centrepointe Theatre on Feb. 7. is looking forward to returning to the nation’s capital. Mystery, a progressive rock band from Montreal is

set to open for Saga at the Centrepointe show. Ticket prices range from $62.75 to a VIP package that

includes a meet and greet with the band for $119.25. Tickets can be purchased at

Low-income Canadians are also disproportionately affected because of lower rates of computer ownership and less access to computers. Two dollars a month may not seem like much to some, but if you are on a fixed income and have several bills coming in month to month, this fee can add up in a hurry. Others are understandably weary of online scams, and are uncomfortable making online payments While public libraries and other organizations provide much-needed computer access, many feel that the library is too public a place to be looking at or printing out bills or invoices. If these companies were serious about reducing the amount of paper in circulation they would have offered a discount for those who use online billing. Instead, they are penalizing those who cannot easily make the transition. This way, consumers would have the opportunity to save some money by switching, rather than getting dinged for doing what they have always been doing. But charging consumers for paper billing (an outlay that companies have been paying for as a part of the cost of doing business up until now) is an obvious cash-grab. It’s worth millions of dollars and it is largely Canadian seniors and low-income families who are being stuck with the bill. Your bills are high enough. Canadians should not be expected to pay extra for the bill itself. It is my hope that the government will agree and take action to stop this unfair practice.

EMC news - Ottawa police are investigating at least two retail robberies believed to be linked to the same individuals and are seeking the public’s assistance. On Jan. 8, at about 6 p.m., two suspects entered a convenience store on the 1000 block of St. Laurent Boulevard. One of the suspects was armed with a metal bar. A demand was made for cash and the suspects fled with an undisclosed quantity of money. Later the same day, at about 7:40 p.m., two suspects entered a gas station on the 3400 block of Carling Avenue. One suspect entered while the second remained outside the door. A demand was made for cash but the suspects ultimately fled the premises empty handed. Robbery investigators are reviewing other recent retail robberies to establish potential links to these suspects. The suspects are described as: 1: A male with a dark complexion (possibly latino), medium build, approximately 5-foot-10 with a “wispy moustache,” and about 25 years of age. #2: A black male, wearing a black winter coat with fur around the hood. Anyone with information about these robberies, or any other robbery, is asked to contact the Ottawa police robbery unit at 613-236-1222, ext. 5116 or Crime Stoppers at 613-233-8477 (TIPS).

Puppy parents needed Future guide dogs seek happy homes Emma Jackson

EMC news - If the goal is to socialize Franklin the puppy to become a calm, wellbehaved guide dog, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no better place for it than Donna Martinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home. Between Cody the cockatooâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s squawks for attention, Tutu the parrotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cheeky hellos, Poppy canaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chirping and the yips and yaps of dog duo Pepper and Buddy, Franklin is surrounded by furry and feathered friends - and their noise - all day long. In Martinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Manotick home, a certain level of chaos and noise is expected â&#x20AC;&#x153;when you live in a zoo,â&#x20AC;? she said. But fostering the eight-weekold yellow Labrador retriever brought a whole new level of commitment on Jan. 11. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a lot of work,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If anyone has had a baby, an infant, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll know

exactly what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like. When heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s awake, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re spending your time teaching him.â&#x20AC;? Despite her menagerie, Martin seems to have plenty of love to go around. Taking Franklin out for a bathroom break after lunch, her encouraging calls of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Good getting busy!â&#x20AC;? fill the wooded backyard. Martin is one of many foster parents raising puppies to become guide dogs for people with visual impairments. A new litter of retrievers was born in November, and the Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind in Manotick is looking for foster homes in eastern Ontario to raise the puppies for up to 18 months. Foster families are required to train the dogs using specific commands so they are consistently prepared for formal guide dog training, and to help the dog become a social, well-adapted dog.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re raising a good dog,â&#x20AC;? said Guide Dogs spokesperson Steven Doucette. Doucette said the foster home job is not for everyone. At least one person in the household must have the time to be with the puppy virtually 24 hours a day and everyone must commit to the training regimen the organization requires. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some families look at it as a perfect volunteer job and some see it as a trial run,â&#x20AC;? Doucette said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Others do it really for the cause.â&#x20AC;? Martin, without question, does it for the cause. She has wanted to foster a guide dog puppy for a long time, but couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t because the organization required a fenced-in back yard, she said. As soon as she heard the restriction was lifted, she put her name on the foster parent list. Her compassion for people with visual impairments was instilled in her at an early age, by a father who wore â&#x20AC;&#x153;coke bottle glassesâ&#x20AC;? and was ex-









 $#%   & 





ered. Of course, support staff is on hand at the Manotickbased Guide Dog headquarters for advice as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They give you a fantastic amount of support,â&#x20AC;? Martin said. And despite the anguish of the eventual goodbye, Martin said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll feel happy know-

ing Franklin is heading off to do good work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to put my emotions and effort into making sure heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s socialized so I can send him off and know heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be helping somebody.â&#x20AC;?

tremely myopic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He stressed the importance of eyes to me,â&#x20AC;? Martin said. As a teen, she used to close her eyes and walk through the house to see what it would feel like to be blind. A week into fostering Franklin, Martin knows it will be hard to give him up when he leaves for training school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to be very sad,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to become attached. I know I am. But heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not my dog.â&#x20AC;? Knowing youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to give the dog up at the end of the foster period doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily make it easier, Doucette agreed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still going to be a little bit heartbreaking and emotional,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of people will compare it to sending a child off to school, raising kids and knowing theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll eventually leave the house.â&#x20AC;? Nevertheless, Doucette said the foster program can be very rewarding for those who are accepted to take a puppy.

EMC News - South Korea at this time of year is quite cool, perfect for Jacob Mathews since he is going to the Special Olympics World Winter Games, leaving on Jan 24. “Jacob trains really hard for the winter and summer Special Olympics,” said Mike Pitre, community co-ordinator and volunteer with Special Olympics Ottawa. “He is a very good, world class athlete. “This opportunity for him is great for him. He gets to travel, meet new people and experience a different culture.” As Mathews is getting ready and training hard for his upcoming events, his mother, who is also one of the coaches who going to South Korea, is proud and excited for her son. “It helps that I am going with him, he will be more comfortable that way,” said Rachel Mathews. “All I want out of this for him is to have fun and to beat his personal best times. I want that for all the athletes that are going.” Making connections with the athletes can spur volunteers to get more involved. “You need to love the games and love to help people with special needs,” said Lise Lebeau, an administration officer

Special Olympians head to South Korea and volunteer bowling coach. “Most of our volunteers have been impacted with special needs children and adults. Some have children or siblings or the neighbour’s kids.” Three coaches – one with a background in figure skating and two in snowshoeing – each have four athletes with them. “I have been teaching figure skating for 33 years now,” said coach Cathy Skinner. “I love working with the athletes. Their emotions are raw and genuine; the truth always comes out.” As snowshoeing coach Claudette Faubert prepared for her third world games, one of her athletes broke her foot and unfortunately is not going this time. “The experience is like no other: the culture, the athletes,” she said. “They are in a whole new place. All I want for my athletes is to have fun, enjoy the experience and most importantly to make them feel more comfortable away from home.” Currently there are 700 participants and just 200 volunteers for Special Olympics Ottawa. The best way to get involved is by going to their website and signing up.

Mission’s first female director ‘softened’ shelter mom. They don’t always have a good relationship with their dad,” she said. “It’s kind of that whole nurturing role.” One client Morrison really connected with was a man named Timmy. He was one of the first men with AIDS to arrive at the shelter, and Morrison provided a bed and a chance for his friends to visit

Beacon Hill resident Diane Morrison has retired after 20 years as the administrator and executive director of the Ottawa Mission. Morrison was the first female volunteer, employee and head of the shelter. 17 employees – all men. “The board didn’t know what to do. They always had

men. They used to call me ‘dear,’” Morrison said. “It’s softened the place a lot.”

him as he was dying. “We had the funeral for him here,” Morrison said. That defining moment in 2002 inspired Morrison to set up the first hospice for the homeless with 14 beds. Morrison’s work completely changed the way shelters approached finances. In the 1990s, people simply didn’t donate money to places like the Mission, Morrison said. “We were really strapped,” she said. When she started out, the Mission had an annual income of $300,000. Now, the Mission takes in $8 million a year. The first foray into fundraising was a $13,000 project to replace the Waller Street building’s roof. It leaked, so the shelter was unable to put any beds on the top floor. The roof had just been installed when a fire broke out on Christmas Eve of 1992. Firefighters had to smash a hole through the new roof to extinguish the flames and 70 men staying in the shelter that Christmas made their way to a

California. Money that began to trickle in allowed Morrison to create the first programs for Mission clients, such as addiction treatment programs. Under Morrison’s tutelage, the Mission became the first local shelter to reach out to police and to the neighbouring community. Now, officers can walk through the shelter and none of the clients blink an eye, Morrison said. Neighbours are similarly nonplussed. There was some tension when crack cocaine use exploded in Ottawa about seven years ago and community meetings helped smooth over relations, Morrison said. This Christmas, residents moving into nearby condo buildings took up a large collection for the Mission and set up a tree with ornaments of socks and underwear to donate to the men. “(One condo resident) said, ‘You’re our neighbours,’” Morrison said. “You’re our neighbours and we’re your neighbours and we have to learn to work together.”

Thank you! Together, we’re strong in the fight against cancer.


EMC news - The Ottawa Mission was a completely different world when Diane Morrison first arrived as a volunteer in 1990. For one thing, it was a different world for Morrison, who had never encountered a panhandler or someone living on the streets during her upbringing in the Wakefield, Que., area. The male residents of the shelter hadn’t encountered someone like her, either. Morrison was the first woman to work at the shelter before she became its first female executive director. Now, 20 years later, the Beacon Hill resident has come a long way from the days when the shelter’s clients wouldn’t talk to her. Now, they see her as sort of a mother. On Jan. 9 as she prepared for her retirement the next day, Morrison reflected on how her influence has “softened” the Mission. Morrison was working as a teacher in Chelsea and volunteering at the shelter when she decided to take a leave of absence from her job to run the shelter full-time for a year, which then turned into two years. At that point, there were no other volunteers, no donations, no treatment programs for the clients and just

nearby diner for some warmth and food. “It was kind of a defining moment,” Morrison said. The fire made the national news and people began to recognize the Mission name for the first time. A newspaper advertising campaign followed after a suggestion from a man from

Talk about mental health Feb. 12 join in the conversation about mental health with Bell Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Talk,â&#x20AC;? said Hughes, Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s six-time Olympic medalist. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every day, 500,000 Canadians miss work due to mental illness. Not because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re lazy, not because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having fun, but because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sick and need help. Talking openly about mental illness lets people know that they shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be afraid to get the support they need â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at home,

at work, in their community.â&#x20AC;? The Bell Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Talk mental health initiative is a ďŹ veyear, $50-million charitable program based on four action pillars: anti-stigma, care and access, research, and workplace best practices. With Bell Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Talk Day as its anti-stigma centrepiece, the initiative is providing signiďŹ cant funding for leading mental health hospitals and grassroots organizations.

EMC news - Action Canada is seeking nominations of emerging Canadian leaders for the 2013-14 fellowship year. Action Canada annually selects up to 20 outstanding young Canadians to participate in an 11-month leadership development program. The program enhances fellowsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; leadership skills,

broadens their understanding of Canada and its policy choices and builds an exceptional network of leaders for our future. The program revolves around intensive working conferences across Canada.

EMC news - Kanata south will become the home of the 11th – and largest – Athletic Club facility in the province. The Athletic Club Group announced its intention to set up shop on Frank Nighbor Place, near Home Depot and Costco, on Tuesday, Jan. 15. The company also has gyms in Orléans and the Ottawa Train Yards shopping centre. “I’ve been after this for months now,” said Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley. “The people in Bridlewood especially, but all over Kanata south, want more recreation facilities.” The new location will be the largest Athletic Club facility in the province at 6,500 square metres, and will boast two saltwater pools – one for women only – as well as an onsite daycare and a multipurpose outdoor court with a two-lane sprint track. “There’s nothing in Kanata even close to it,” said Hubley.

Construction on the $14-million gym is expected to begin this spring with an opening date in 2014. “The Kanata project will be much nicer … and much larger than our existing clubs here,” said David Wu, managing partner of the Ottawa Athletic Club Group. The organization will select a general contractor for the project within the next few weeks, he added. “We’ll definitely be looking to hire a lot of local people living in Kanata.” LONG TIME COMING

Residents of Hubley’s ward have long asked for additional pool and recreation facilities, he said. With little space available, however, it was decided by a previous council that municipal funds would be used to build a recreation centre north of Highway 417. “People are still looking for a pool in Bridlewood but there are no lands available,” said Hubley, adding there are no municipal funds available to build that

type of facility in his ward. Instead, the Athletic Club will fill that void. Asking for the private sector to invest in the community was the only way to get a pool, he said. “Because this is a private facility it’ll be high-end,” said Hubley, who visited the facilities located at the Trainyards and Orléans. “It’s a really sharp looking place. The whole package is there.” Margaret Kellaway, president of the Bridlewood Community Association, said she needed to learn more about the facility before commenting on how it would affect Bridlewood residents. The new gym is in close proximity to both the Kanata Leisure Centre, which houses fitness facilities and a pool, and the Kanata Recreation Complex, which has two NHL-size rinks and the Bell Sensplex with its four rinks and indoor sports field. The Athletic Club, which has 10 other facilities across the province, got its start in London, Ont. in 1997 by founders Alan Quesnel and Wu.

Soccer team narrows search for new NASL team coach Team name coming soon: president Eddie Rwema


John Pugh said new Ottawa’s North American Soccer League team is aiming to hire a coach by spring.

EMC sports - The search for Ottawa’s North American Soccer League team coach could be a step closer, said Ottawa Fury owner and president John Pugh. The franchise will commence league play in 2014 as the major stadium reconstruction project at Frank Clair Stadium at Lansdowne Park is completed. “We do have a search in progress,” said Pugh, who is also a partner with NASL franchise owner Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group. “We have had some initial discussions with some coaches and we are now in the process of trying to get a short list of people that we would like to interview. “We are looking at a coach that is known to soccer fans, who has respect for his peers, players, fans management

and so on.” Pugh said he hopes the team will have a coach that meets the brand of soccer they want for the club. “We have a certain brand of soccer that we like – which is possession with a purpose that is exciting and good to watch. I think that is going to be one of the most important characteristics of the coach that we are looking for,” said Pugh. Canadian soccer supporters had a chance last month to submit their names of choice for the new Ottawa NASL franchise through a name-theteam contest. Pugh said they received more than 4,000 entries and added that it won’t be long before the decision on the name of the team is announced. “We are working with a branding company from Oregon to look at branding both the football team and the soccer team,” said Pugh. NEW LEADERSHIP, NEW DIRECTION

On Jan. 17, OSEG appointed Bernie Ashe as the new CEO to oversee the group’s operations, including sports franchises, entertainment business and Lansdowne Park operations. “We are over excited to have been able to attract a man of his calibre. He’s got a lot of managerial experience,” said Pugh. “As the CEO of OSEG he has a lot on his plate. It’s quite a job and we are happy with the man we selected to do it.” In a statement, Roger Greenberg, who is also an

OSEG partner, said he was delighted that Ashe agreed to join the group and lead business operations. “From the beginning, we planned to hire a CEO with a track record of success in diverse industries, including sports and entertainment, and we’ve certainly found one in Bernie,” Greenberg said in a release shortly after the hiring. “He also has deep roots in our community and a history of community service, which speaks to his integrity and our core values. Bernie will be a great asset to our organization and our city.” OSEG partnered with the City of Ottawa to revitalize and manage Lansdowne Park, which will house a 24,000seat stadium for football, soccer and other outdoor events, a 9,800-seat arena, the historic Aberdeen Pavilion and Horticulture Building, the Ottawa Farmer’s Market, a new commercial district, an office tower, two condominium towers, townhomes and an urban park. OSEG will manage the facilities and own and operate a CFL football team, an NASL soccer team and the Ottawa 67’s OHL hockey team. “I’m thrilled and honoured to be part of such an incredible team of community leaders and to be involved in such an important community project,” said Ashe. “The new Lansdowne will soon be one of Ottawa’s most inviting, year-round destinations for everyone in our region, and my role is to ensure that it remains vibrant and viable for decades to come.” From 1991 to 1997, Ashe served as executive vice-president and CEO of the Ottawa Senators.

Christopher Scrivens, a 21-yearold pilot from the Metcalfe area, spent 10 months flying for Air Nunavut in 2012. While living in the North, his mother Patti-Anne visited him twice, bringing clothing for local residents at her son’s request. Together they witnessed the abject poverty of some communities and came up with a plan to collect snowsuits for Nunuvut children who don’t have proper winter clothes, despite an average of -35 C weather in January. “The kids didn’t really have a lot,” Scrivens said. He and his mother organized the Nunuvut Snowsuit Fund, and a drop-off bin has been set up in MacKinnon’s Foodland in Greely. But the bigger problem - how to get the snowsuits to the north - wasn’t solved until Patti-Anne stopped in to the Shoppers Drug Mart in Manotick. She overheard Marc Wood taking a business call and noticed the logo on his hat: Canadian North airline. Wood is the only Canadian North airline employee in Ottawa.

“It was fate,” Patti-Anne said. She struck up a conversation, and asked if his company would deliver the snowsuits. The free flight has now been confirmed. “We will do everything possible to move whatever snowsuits are donated,” Wood said. Wood lived in Northern Canada in the 1970s, and said even then the poverty was acute. “There’s a need for general improvement,” he said. Donors can drop gently used or new snowsuits and boots off at MacKinnon’s Foodland and at the Larga Baffin at 1071 Richmond Rd in Westboro. On Jan. 9, local real estate agent Betty Ann Hinch kicked off the campaign with a donation of four brand new snowsuits, including several for toddlers. Once the snowsuits reach Iqaluit, they will be distributed to smaller outlying communities with the help of the RCMP. “They know where it’s needed,” Patti-Anne said of the Mounties, noting that she’s impressed to see several community groups and individuals collaborating to make the donation possible. “It’s kind of cool that it’s all coming together.” Kit MacKinnon, who runs the Foodland with her husband, has spent time in the North with her daughter as well and said she has also seen the poverty first hand. “I just want to help,” she said.

Pet Adoptions DUKE ID#A148023

Duke is a neutered male, tricolour, Blue Tick and Walker Hound mix. The staff at the Ottawa Humane Society think he is about 5 years old. Duke was brought it to the OHS as a stray, and has been a beloved resident for just over 5 months now. He is patiently waiting for his forever home. Duke is a laid back fella, just looking for some extra attention from people who love him. He loves to discover new things by going on long walks, and would love a bed to call his own after his regular outings. He’s a little stubborn, and wants things done his way so a house with kids over the age of 8 would be better for him. Duke is available as a ‘Special Needs’ adoption due to possible food allergies, which may need some veterinary guidance to sort out.

The average cost of canine sterilization at a vet clinic is $350.00 while feline sterilization costs and average of $250.00. In the end, adopting a pet from the OHS offers great savings! The OHS adoption prices are: $290 for dogs older than six months, $350 for puppies and small breeds; $170 for cats older than six months, $225 for kittens. It’s the best deal around! OHS dogs receive a temperament assessment prior to being placed for adoption. This translates into much needed information about the dog in order to make the best possible match between the potential adopter and the canine, for a successful and permanent placement. All animals receive a routine health check by OHS veterinary staff prior to adoption. The first vaccination is given and if the animal is within our system for any extended period of time, they will receive a booster (second vaccination). All animals are implanted with a microchip (a permanent form of identification) prior to being adopted, and are automatically enrolled with pet insurance for six weeks of free coverage, effective 48 hours post-adoption.

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

My name is Jasmine, and I am a 7 month old parti poodle, with our other, much older standard poodle Riley to play with whenever. My owners love me very much it seems as they’ve taught me to sit, and whenever I do they hand out tasty rewards. I love to sit! They are so warm, and when they are sitting I lean against them and on their socks, and we all get warm. Going for walks in Britannia Village is a bark and a hoot with so many other dogs and their owners to sniff and greet. My favourite thing to do is leaping through the snow in our big back yard.

Why doesn’t the Ottawa Humane Society (OHS) give away dogs, cats, and other pets for free? At first this may seem like a great idea: free pets means more families will be able to afford a homeless animal. However, having a pet costs money. A free kitten from a friend of a friend is hard to resist. However, that kitten needs to be health checked by your veterinarian, dewormed, vaccinated, and spayed. A free puppy from the newspaper or an online ad needs the same. How much are you really saving? The year one initial costs sterilization, vaccination, deworming, etc. will cost more than $600 for a kitten, plus approximately $900 in yearly ongoing costs that include food, litter, grooming and boarding. Sadly, many people are uninformed of these costs and many “free” animals end up being surrendered to the humane society. In fact, more than 7,000 cats end up at the Ottawa Humane Society every year. Thirty-five percent of them are believed to have been acquired either from a friend or relative or from some form of “free to good home.” At the OHS, a health check, initial deworming and vaccination, sterilization (spay or neuter) a permanent microchip identification and pet insurance for 6 weeks is included in the dog and cat

University to protect rivers New grant will help water quality of river Michelle Nash


The boys are back in town Ottawa Senators goaltender Robin Lehner takes shots from his teammates during practice. Ottawa’s NHL team was back at Scotiabank Place for the first home game on Jan. 21.

EMC news - Carleton University students working to improve water quality in the St. Lawrence River recently got a bit of help from the Ontario government. A grant for $17,446 from the Great Lakes Guardian community fund will allow the university to pay for the planting native species and clearing of debris from Watts Creek, a tributary of the Ottawa River, which in turn flows into the St. Lawrence. This project will ultimately help improve and protect the water quality in the river system. “This project will engage student volunteers in solving real-world problems through hands-on restoration on Watts Creek,” said Dr. Steven J. Cook, associate professor of environmental science and biology for Carleton University. “We are thrilled to have support from the provincial government for stream resto-

ration activities that will have a meaningful impact on local aquatic ecosystems.” Ottawa-Centre MPP Yasir Naqvi said this grant is an example of one way people can help preserve Ontario’s lakes and rivers. There are more than 4,000 species of plants and wildlife that live in the Great Lakes Basin ecosystem, making it one of the richest biological regions in Canada. “I encourage everyone to help by joining local efforts to clean up our beaches, creeks, streams, rivers and lakes.” Naqiv said. The Great Lakes guardian community fund is administered by Ontario’s Ministry of the Environment. The grant helps community groups, non-profit organizations and First Nations and Métis communities clean up and restore their rivers and lakes. It provides up to $25,000 to help groups protect the Great Lakes in the province.

Marguirite’s hair has Northcote School buzzing


omething was amiss at the Northcote School. First of all, Marguirite sneaked in like she had just been caught with her hand in the cookie jar. She usually made a grand entrance so that everyone could get a good look at whatever fancy outfit she had worn that day, but not only did she come in just as Miss Crosby rang the nine o’clock bell, she wore a wool toque and made no move to take it off, even though hats in school were strictly forbidden. She went right up to Miss Crosby’s desk and whispered in her ear. Miss Crosby looked at the hat, made a great sigh and nodded towards Marguirite’s desk. Every eye was on the young girl who didn’t have a friend in the entire school as she meekly took her seat. Well, if that didn’t just tie it -- she was going to be allowed to wear her hat in school. None of us would dare be so bold. Even the boys, the second they walked in the door,

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories removed their caps and hung them on a hook at the back of the room. At recess Joyce, Velma and I got in a huddle to discuss this latest caper and none of us could imagine why Marguirite, who took such pride in her golden curls, would choose to hide them under a toque. We all knew Marguirite, who thought she was a dead ringer for Shirley Temple, got those curls from Ducharmes’ Beauty Parlour, and the golden hair right out of a bottle of dye from Ritza’s Drug Store in Renfrew. Even the boys at school noticed the toque. Cecil made some snide remarks and jabbed Emerson in the ribs, but that day that’s about

all the attention they gave to Marguirite. There were more important things to do at recess, like pouring water from the pump on the small square of ice behind the schoolhouse. Miss Crosby rang the bell and recess was over. When we went inside, Marguirite’s head was still covered. Well, it was lunch time, and we all knew it wouldn’t be long before either Cecil or Emerson would get to the bottom of Marguirite’s hat. We were allowed to eat inside on winter days, but the second the last mouthful was down, we headed outside to play, either on the small patch of ice or on the excuse for a hill that the senior boys had built up by piling snow over

the wood fence at the back of the yard. Out of the corner of my eye, I could see Emerson and Cecil whispering and the look they both had on their faces spelled trouble. In one fell-swoop, they tore past Marguirite, with Cecil making a dive for the toque. They never stopped running until they reached the patch of ice at the back of the schoolhouse. Meanwhile, Marguirite looked like she had been shot with a gun. She stood frozen on the spot, and finally, we could all see why the toque never left her head. Right down the back, where there should have been a cascade of golden curls, was a streak of orange hair, and it was as straight as a stick. She clamped her hand over the spot and ran into the schoolhouse like someone possessed. Before our lunch hour was over, Miss Crosby rang the big brass bell and we knew Cecil and Emerson were in for it. They had no idea where they had dropped the

toque. My youngest brother Earl was sent out to look for it. The two culprits, without asking, knew what was coming. Without even being asked, they went up to Miss Crosby’s desk and held out a hand. She brought the strap down with a thunder that could be heard in Admaston. They boys never flinched. They got far worse fighting

born with golden hair and the curls to match. That day, everyone at school knew different, but the incident was soon forgotten and Marguirite’s mother must have made a fast trip into Renfrew, because when Marguirite walked into the classroom the next day, her head was a mass of golden curls. We had no idea how her mother got rid of the

Earl got the toque, covered with snow, and handed it to Marguirite, who by this time was crying great running tears, wiping her eyes with one hand and covering the offending spot at the back of her head with the other. Marguirite always wanted everyone to believe she was

orange streak, but Joyce, Velma and I were pretty sure she had to cut it out with a pair of scissors. Joyce, the most kind hearted of the three of us thought we should all feel sorry for the girl, and maybe tell her so. But when we took a vote between the three of us, Joyce lost.

Irish stew just the Bowl for kids this weekend thing to warm up a cold winter day EMC lifestyle - Lamb shanks are easy to use and delicious; if unavailable, use thick shoulder chops. It’s better if made a day or two ahead. Lamb is fresh, lean, tender, mild and easy to cook. It’s an excellent source of protein, iron and B vitamins. Because lamb isn’t marbled like beef, health-conscious cooks can easily trim off the fat. Preparation Time: 30 minutes Cooking Time: three hours Servings: 8 Ingredients • 8 lamb shanks • Salt and pepper • 125 ml (1/2 cup) all-purpose flour • 25 ml (2 tbsp) olive oil • 4 cloves garlic, minced • 5 ml (1 tsp) each dried thyme and rosemary • 2 bottles (341 mL each) stout-style beer • 750 ml (3 cups) beef broth • 50 ml (1/4 cup) butter • 45 ml (3 tbsp) packed brown sugar • 3 onions, cut into wedges • 3 each carrots and parsnips, cut into 2.5-cm (1-inch) pieces • 1/2 rutabaga, cut into 2.5cm (1-inch) wedges

• 50 ml (1/4 cup) chopped fresh parsley Preparation Season the lamb shanks with salt and pepper then coat with flour. In a large ovenproof casserole, heat half of the oil over medium-high heat. In batches, brown the lamb, adding more oil as needed. Remove to a plate. Stir in any remaining flour along with the garlic, thyme and rosemary. Stir over medium heat for one minute. Remove from heat and gradually stir in the beer. Bring to boil, scraping up any brown bits. Boil for five minutes, stirring often. Stir in 500 ml (2 cups) of broth. Return lamb to the pan and bring to boil. Cover and bake in 180 C (350 F) oven for 1.5 hours. Meanwhile in skillet, melt butter and sugar over medium heat. Stir in the vegetables and season with salt and pepper. Add remaining broth and bring to boil. Add to the lamb, cover and bake in 180 C (350 F) oven for another 1.25 hours or until lamb and vegetables are tender. Sprinkle with parsley to serve.

Ottawa duo win big at business competition Carleton commerce students place first at Inter-Collegiate Business Competition Blair Edwards

EMC news - A team of Carleton University commerce students took home top honours from a business competition held at Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s University from Jan. 3 to 5. Sarah Nichols, a 21-yearold Morganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grant woman, and Maxim Melekhovets, a 21-year-old Shirleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brook man, placed first in the management of information systems category of the InterCollegiate Business Competition, beating out competition from the University of Alberta, Simon Fraser, Laurier, UBC and Okanagan College. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is really exciting to do so well in the first (business competition) we entered into,â&#x20AC;? said Nichols. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of hype around case competitions at our school.â&#x20AC;? The students learn public speaking and analysis skills and work under tremendous pressure, said Nichols and Melekhovets. The Inter-Collegiate Business Competition poses problems faced by businesses and is judged by managers in various industries. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I guess it speaks to how well weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trained here at Carleton,â&#x20AC;? said Melekhovets, who will graduate this summer with a bachelor of commerce degree, specializing in accounting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just good to get some representation

from Carleton at these competitions where weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re facing competition from international schools.â&#x20AC;? Carleton was one of six schools that won a spot at the competition after competing with more than 30 universities in a preliminary round, where teams were asked to write a paper about whether employees should be allowed to bring a personal device, such as a cellphone, into the workplace. The six finalists were given a different case study and five-and-a-half hours to prepare a 15-minute presentation on a resolution to the problem. The case study involved a newly-appointed chief information officer of a bank who is asked by the chief executive to use the power of data analytics to help the company better predict customer needs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The overriding issue is that within the organization there is no strategic direction for IT (information technology),â&#x20AC;? said Nichols. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The IT department is told to do projects on a whim and not given budgets.â&#x20AC;? The choice was either jumping into analytics to make the CEO happy or coming up with a governance plan first, said the Nichols and Melekhovets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult for a couple

of reasons, said Melekhovets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have to deal with that time pressure. You havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen the case beforehand.â&#x20AC;? The Carleton duo presented their winning solution to a panel of six judges â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all experienced businesspeople who face issues similar to the case study on a regular basis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sound right theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be on you right away,â&#x20AC;? said Melekhovets. Nichols said Carleton commerce students will compete in at least three more business competitions this year, held in Halifax, Montreal and Spain. Last week, a team of 50 students from Carleton University headed to Halifax competing in the JDC Central business competition. As the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s academic captain, Nichols wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t scheduled to compete in the event. After she graduates this year, Nichols plans to start work in May at Deloitte, a consulting firm that deals with accounting audits, IT consulting and business strategy consulting. Nichols attended Roland Michener Public School, W. Erskine Johnston Public School and West Carleton Secondary School. Melekhovets attended Katimavik Elementary School and Earl of March Secondary School.


Sarah Nichols and Maxim Melekhovets celebrate winning the Inter-Collegiate Business Competition, management of information systems category, held at Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s University from Jan. 3 to 5.
