EMC news - Franco Ouest Catholic secondary school in Bells Corners will be shooting for a new photography focus program next fall. The school already has a media and design program – but teacher and photographer Alex Leblanc has started purchasing the equipment for the threecourse program. So far the labs have been outfitted with studio lights, 15 digital, SLR cameras and 12 different kinds of lenses. A computer lab will be outfitted with the latest in photo-editing software. Phillipe Lachance, who is currently in Grade 11, said he buses an hour every day to attend the school because of the media program already offered. He said he can’t wait to take the photo courses. He’s already played with some of the new lenses. “I really like sports photography,” Lachance said. The program will be the first of its kind in Ontario for a French Catholic school board, Leblanc said. The students will be taught about editing, using studio lighting for portraiture and there will be a unit on shooting for news. The course will have 40 spaces. Half of those spaces are allowed to come from existing students at Franco Ouest. The other half is reserved for other students in the French Catholic board. If there are any additional spaces, the general public will be able to take the courses. The courses are at the Grade 11 level.

The students are pictured with their teacher Alex Leblanc. Students were in the drivers seat during the creation of the course. Leblanc said a survey sent out to students and parents was part of the impetus for the project. For the last few months, Leblanc has been a bargain hunter, searching high

and low for the best prices so students have a range of equipment. “We have fish-eye and wide-angle lenses,” he said, “as well as lenses that are longer and used for sports.” Students can sign out equipment to take cameras and other accessories

home. Stephanie Heroux-Gauthier, a Kanata resident who attends the school, said her mother opened her mind to a career in the media or doing photography. “I think it will be neat to try,” she said.

EMC news - S. Bear Bergman and j. wallace may not have a traditional family, but they have surrounded themselves with people who care about them. “Don’t look to fit your family into the traditional roles that are there for you,” wallace said. “Do what you need to have people around you that you love.”

Bergman and wallace – the latter prefers a name spelled in lowercase – spoke at the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board’s eighth annual Rainbow Youth Forum on Feb. 26. The forum was designed to provide space for the board’s gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans, two spirit, and queer (GLBTTQ) youth. Corinne Davison, instructional coach in the public board, said the day-long series of workshops provides staff and students with the opportunity to enhance their knowledge

and their awareness about equity and diversity issues. “The forum is aligned with the (school board’s) efforts to embed character education and cultural proficiency into our daily practice and it encourages safer, more inclusive school environments,” she said. This year’s theme was Our Families and Our Stories. See OPEN, page 3

EMC news - For a man who has raised millions for charity, Dave Smith didn’t grow up with very much. Sitting the Your Family Restaurant on Merivale Road, where Nate’s Deli has moved, the 80year-old recounted stories of sleeping sideways on the bed to make sure there was enough room for all the kids. And even though they didn’t have a lot, Smith was always taught the importance of giving. “A lot of the time in the winter my mother would come home without a coat, and she would just say, ‘someone needed it more than me,’” Smith said. And while, there is now a street named after him in a development in Riverside South, Smith shows no signs of slowing down. He said if everything goes as planned, shoves will be in the ground for a new residential drug treatment centre for youth in rural Kanata in the next year. He is also working on a technical, vocational school for aboriginal youth near Thunder Bay. Smith said young people are the future. “Small things can really make a difference,” he said. “We can turn their lives around.” His work with youth was started after a phone call from a Nate’s customer. “He called and asked me how he could tell if his son’s friend was on drugs,” Smith said. “It didn’t take long to figure out it was his son, and I told him I would get back to him.” A few days later, Smith was talking at a local school and when he was finished, he asked stu-

Dave Smith receives a commemorative street sign on his 80th birthday at city hall on Jan. 23. A street in a new development in Riverside South was to be named after the philanthropist. dents to come and join him on the stage if they knew someone who had a problem with drugs. “The stage filled up pretty fast,” Smith said. And that was the beginning of the Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre. After lobbying the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, and having kids speak on Parliament Hill, where Smith was known for catering events, the day centre opened in 1993. Now Smith is anxious to begin expansion work on the residential centres in Carp and Carleton Place. “The day centre was alright, but from the beginning I wanted to have a residential facility,” Smith said. “We would close down at the end of the day and then the kids would be back with their friends and in their neighbourhoods. It was a challenge.” Another of Smith’s pet projects, which also celebrated its 80th birthday, made a move to Nepean this year. The Ottawa Neighbourhood Services centre, which was on City Place Drive, has now moved to Rideau Heights Drive near West

Hunt Club Road and Prince of Wales Drive. The organization helps to provide essentials to low-income families. Smith said they offer everything from furniture to toiletries at the lowest prices possible. “It’s a great service. A lot of families come to Canada with nothing and this helps them get started,” Smith said. Smith chairs the organization’s board. He said it takes hundreds of volunteers to do the work to gather donations, make deliveries and man the store. “There are a lot of people out there who want to help,” he said. “Ottawa is a great community.” While still planning the vocational centre near Thunder Bay and a new treatment centre in the same area for young aboriginal people with addictions issues, Smith is doing work in Afghanistan and here in Ottawa. When asked if he might slow down anytime soon, he shook his head no. “There’s still a lot of work to be done,” he said.

From left, j. wallace and partner S. Bear Bergman talk about the challenges of being a non-traditional family during the Rainbow Youth Forum held on Feb. 26. LGBTTQ issues, Bergman said it was natural to try and educate people. “I would come out and talk. If there had been official baked goods from the gay community I would have brought them,” Bergman said. Along with a friend who had two mothers, Bergman formed one of the first gay-straight alliances in an American school. Now, an author, poet and play-

wright, Bergman makes a living educating people. Wallace is also an educator, having worked for the Halton District School Board. The couple has a three-year-old who sometimes identifies as a boy, sometimes as a girl, and most often as a mid-size dragon. “He’s comfortable asking people if they’d like to be addressed as a he, she or they,” wallace said.

Stanley would have been named Stanley whether he was born a girl or a boy. He has a unusual list of relatives, his sperm donor is referred to as Spunkle Joseph and his paternal grandparents as Grand Spunkle and Grand Sparkle – he even has a fairy gods mother. “He has the longest list of people who are authorized to pick him up of any other kid at the daycare,” Berg-

Bergman and wallace are both transgendered and are married with a little boy named Stanley. The pair talked to students about their coming out stories and then about the makeup of their family. “I came out to my family in stages,” wallace said. “First I came out as a vegetarian, which my mother said was a phase and then I came out as a lesbian.” Wallace’s mother accepted the choice, but didn’t want the grandparents to know. “I could hide I was a lesbian from my grandfather, but then when I was going through a sex change it was difficult to hide, so it would have meant not seeing him.” Wallace described the coming out story to the students at the Confederation Education Centre. It had a surprisingly good ending, with wallace’s grandfather saying he was “growing up to be a fine young man.” Bergman’s parents also experienced what was described as coming out fatigue. “It got to a point where I would say, ‘I have something to tell you’ and they would say, ‘No, we are still dealing with the last thing,’” Bergman said. But in the public forum, Bergman was out and happy to answer any questions. “I felt like it was when I was a kid and I was the only Jewish kid in my class and I would have to give a talk with a yarmulke, some candles and some things my mom baked,” Bergman said. So when the time came to talk about

man said. Wallace said there have been some challenges with parenting in a transgendered partnership – complete with a series of phone calls to modify Stanley’s birth certificate so wallace and Bergman could be listed as his father. “I practically carry around the Ontario Human Rights Code in my pocket,” wallace said. “People like it when you have a solution for them that fits with the law.” Donna Blackburn, the public school board trustee that represents parts of Nepean and Barrhaven, said she was happy to be able to attend the event. “There certainly wouldn’t have been anything like this when I was going to high school,” she said. Blackburn, the school’s first openly-gay trustee, started putting together a team to march in the city’s Pride Parade two years ago. She invited all the students to join this year. “If you feel safe and secure at school, you will have a better chance at success,” she said. After the keynote speeches, students broke off to attend a series of workshops about topics like starting gay-straight alliances, coming out and queer history. Jennifer Adams, Director of education for the board also shared a letter from a mother whose son was in the process of changing his identity to female. “She wanted to thank the principal and a couple of teachers for helping her child through the transition,” Adams said. “I am so proud of the respect that students and staff have for each other. The OCDSB is a place where we all belong.”

Mayor’s Report

Junk food tax still makes sense: doctors EMC news - The Ontario Medical Association has renewed calls for increased taxes on junk foods and drinks, and for decreased taxes on healthier items. In the fall of 2012, the OMA outlined several recommendations to combat obesity which included putting health warnings on high calorie – low nutrition foods, restricting advertising to children and reducing junk foods in kids’ sports and recreation facilities. Since that time the OMA has been working with government, food and restaurant industry representatives to try to find collaborative ways to improve healthier food policies. The OMA recommended revisiting how foods are taxed because

price increases through taxation are proven to have a significant impact on demand, and Ontario’s doctors believe this will help the obesity epidemic. Some criticism of health-based taxing mechanisms, by the junk food industry and taxpayers’ groups, do not tell the whole story. DANISH EXPERIENCE

The failed Danish “fat tax” often cited as evidence that an obesity prevention tax won’t work, was focused on saturated fat content in foods, not directly on obesity prevention. It was in fact successful at reducing demand and purchase volumes of these products in Denmark, confirming

the OMA position that price plays a part. It was not politically sustainable and lessons can be learned from Denmark’s experience. There are many examples of more successful obesity-related taxes though, that target sugar and calories. Denmark itself still has in place an excise tax on pop, candy, ice cream and some other sugar-laden foods. Finland, Hungary, Norway and France have all increased taxes on high calorie junk foods. Like Ontario’s doctors, these policy makers were concerned that junk food was cheaper than healthier alternatives. There are many progressive tax policies that our governments can follow to improve health.

THE MAYOR’S CITY BUILDER AWARD By Jim Watson At the beginning of each City Council meeting I have the opportunity to recognize an outstanding volunteer in our city with the Mayor’s City Builder Award. This is an award I created when I became Mayor in 2010 to celebrate those doing great volunteer work and inspire others to get involved in philanthropy as well. In the just over two years since THE AWARD HAS BEEN IN EXISTENCE we have presented the City Builder Award to a wide variety of residents from all across Ottawa. &ROM (ANNAH (EMPINSTALL OF Rideau Goulborn Ward,who at only 13 has raised tens of thousands of dollars for diabetes research, to Pierre Gauthier of Alta Vista Ward, whose work at Brewer Park has allowed its outdoor speed-skating oval to be one of the best in the province, Ottawa has an incredibly dedicated and giving population doing amazing things for our city. We are all privileged to live in this city and I am struck everyday

by the generosity of Ottawa’s residents. Despite the scope in age, causes, and activities that our City Builder Award recipients have spanned so far, one thing that is uniformly true is that they are humble people whose work is not for personal gain but rather for the betterment of their community and their fellow residents. I look forward to presenting the City Builder Award in the coming years to more deserving volunteers in our great city. They may not seek out the spotlight but recognizing the great work of these people is a small token of appreciation for what is often a life’s worth of giving back to our City. If you know someone who you would like to nominate for the Mayor’s City Builder Award please visit http://www. jimwatsonottawa.ca/en/content/ mayors-city-builder-award where you will find more information about the award and the nomination form.

Don’t Let the Bed Bugs Bite

Common ways of contracting bed bugs include: - Staying overnight in bed bug infested accommodations like hotels and shelters - Buying or using infested second-hand furniture - Picking up infested discarded items, such as items that someone has put to the curb for garbage pick-up - Living in a multi-unit housing complex that has a bed bug infestation It is important to take precautions when you are travelling or picking up discarded or used furniture.

Tips to Prevent Bed Bugs While Travelling When travelling, inspect your hotel room for evidence of bed bugs before settling in. Look for live or dead bed bugs, eggs, small black spots (feces), or bed bug skins. • Pull back all bedding at the head of the bed, near the head board, to look for evidence of

bed bugs • Check the underside of the mattress tag • Check the seams of the mattress and the box spring • Examine the back of the head board • Never place luggage on the bed • Examine the luggage stand and place your bag on the stand away from the wall • Do not place your belongings in drawers • Use a flashlight to inspect the closet for evidence of bed bugs before hanging your clothes • Place your shoes in an open area, not under the bed or in the closet • If bed bug evidence is found, report to management and ask for another room When you return home: • Inspect luggage and contents before bringing it into your home • Upon returning to your home, immediately unpack luggage in a location other than the bed room (e.g. bathroom, garage, mud room or foyer) • Launder all clothing with hot water and dry on high heat for at least 30 minutes • A soft bag (e.g. duffel style bag) is an alternative to a hard sided suitcase as it can be placed in the dryer when you get home If you think you may have come in contact with bed bugs during your travels, it is very important to watch and check for signs of bed bugs. Look for signs of bed bugs in the following areas: • Bed frames, head board, mattresses, and box

springs • Chairs and couches • Under area rugs and along the edges of carpets • Behind baseboards

How to address a bed bug infestation: The best way to deal with a bed bug problem is through an integrated pest management approach, which may include: vacuuming, reducing clutter, steam cleaning, sealing cracks and crevices, washing and drying clothes at high temperatures, and the use of a trustworthy professional pest control company.

Put your Best ’Food’ Forward March is Nutrition Month, Ottawa Public Health is focusing on helping you make the best choices by providing you with tips on how to plan, shop for, and cook healthy, delicious meals. At some point, most of us have resolved to eat healthier. Yet, when we get to the grocery store, many of us run into this: • endless aisles of packaged food; • many choices of fresh fruit and vegetables often make for hard decisions; • tempting aromas of the bakery wafts through the store; and • deli counter offers ready-to-eat meals. How does one filter through all of these options to find the best food, for the lowest price, that can be prepared quickly and easily?

Plan Planning meals and writing a grocery list is a great way to save time, money and effort when it comes to prepping meals and shopping for food. Start by planning your main meals for the week. Have you ever made a list of your family’s top ten favourite healthy meals? Having such a list will make meal planning a breeze. Perhaps you’re looking for new recipe ideas? EatRight Ontario’s My Menu Planner will help you create a personalized menu plan, complete with seasonal recipes and a shopping list. Shop When it comes to grocery shopping, reading labels and comparing products is key to making healthy food choices. If ever in doubt (or in a hurry), it’s easy to seek out beautiful colourful food that packs a crunch. If you can, shop for fresh produce whenever possible - you’d be surprised by the extra crunch local vegetables provide! Check out Foodland Ontario to see when your favourite vegetables and fruit are in season. Frozen vegetables and fruits are also a great option and can be just as nutritious as fresh ones, especially in the winter months Another food group that might surprise you with its satisfying crunch - grain products! Let your nose follow that tempting aroma to the bakery where you can find delicious whole grains. Lastly, don’t forget the outer aisles of the grocery store. This is where you will find lower fat 1% or skim milk and lean meats such as skinless chicken and extra-lean ground beef. These items may not be

crunchy, but they are great tasting and good for you! Cook Most of us don’t have the time to cook from scratch anymore. Once you’re home and the groceries are unpacked and to speed up meal preparation, why not try using convenient food items like pre-cut and prewashed vegetables and fruit? To save even more time, try making larger amounts of food and plan to use leftovers for lunches and suppers the next day or throughout the remainder of the week. The extra ground beef could be used in tacos, on pizza or in pasta sauce. Thankfully, cooking from scratch doesn’t have to require lots of work or time in order to be healthy. Experiment to find meal preparation shortcuts that work best for you. Enjoy healthy eating throughout the month of March and beyond. Use these tips to plan, shop and cook your way to delicious, healthy meals for you and your family.

Bed bugs are small insects that usually hide during the day and come out at night to bite human hosts. Adult bed bugs are about the size of an apple seed and, because they hide in small spaces like cracks or crevices, are often very hard to find. As a result, you may have signs of a bed bug problem – bites around your face, neck, upper body, arms and hands that you notice after waking up from a night’s sleep – without having seen a bed bug for weeks. Bed bugs can be a nuisance, but it is important to know that they do not spread disease, nor do they fly or jump.

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let respect for seniors lapse

T

hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of uncertainty in these fragile economic times. People everywhere are scrambling to make ends meet or formulate plans to secure their financial futures. Back in the 1970s we were sold a fantasy; the dream of a leisure society where one of the biggest challenges faced by municipalities would be offering recreational services for workers enjoying reduced work weeks and seniors lazing comfortably, with time on the hands. A few decades later, we face a far different picture. We have very little to celebrate. Now, workers who carried the hope of

early retirement are being told by the federal government that Old Age Security is changing and there are plans to up the retirement age to 67 years. Many canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to retire early, or even at age 65. Last month, BMO reported that Canadians, on average, managed to save about $9,200 in 2012. And the average total savings amongst Canadians is $122,310. Some who worked hard all their lives will be unable to afford to stay in their homes. Others will be forced by failing health into long-term care homes. They must not be forgotten or shortchanged when it comes to federal and provincial dollars for services.

Not quite what it used to be CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

D

UNEDIN, FL. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Every old-timer I know says that spring training is not what it used to be. What it used to be was a few fans sitting around in the sun, flamingos flying overhead, scouts smoking cigars while they check out The Kid, the players hanging over the fence talking to the fans and handing out autographs. It was a lazy and informal setting and every fan wanted to be part of it. Maybe it was never like that. Maybe the past was never as romantic as we think. But what todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spring training is like is bound to suffer from the comparison. What it is like now, in Dunedin, Florida, in the unromantically named Florida Auto Exchange Stadium, is a large minor league park in any city, with lineups, parking problems, reserved seats and overpriced coffee. Florida Auto Exchange Stadium, where the Toronto Blue Jays practice, reminds you quite a bit of Lynx Stadium in Ottawa, in the days when there used to be crowds. Florida Auto Exchange Stadium holds fewer people, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a nice small park and the sightlines are about the same. Where the old-time spring training feel still plays out is in the easy-going nature of the fans, so pleased to be watching baseball again, so pleased to be out in the sunshine that that they can barely bring themselves to boo a bad call, so pleased to be out in the sunshine that even

Nepean Barrhaven News 57 Auriga Drive, Suite 103 Ottawa, ON, K2E 8B2

Boston Red Sox fans have a hard time being unpleasant. The minor-league vibe can also be felt in the informality of the stadium itself, where a leather-lunged vendor can proclaim â&#x20AC;&#x153;ice-cold Canadian beer in an American can made in Chinaâ&#x20AC;? and, when announcing last call, urge customers to â&#x20AC;&#x153;take one home, as a souvenir.â&#x20AC;? So some things havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t changed, but one thing that has -- and it applies to all sport -- is the recent trend among fans to wear full team uniforms. It used to be that if you went to the (sob!) Expos game, you might wear an Expos hat or an Expos t-shirt. You might see the odd guy wearing a uniform shirt with Raines or Dawson on the back, but it was rare because those things cost $75 and being a fan only went so far. It sure is different now. So seriously does the modern fan take his responsibilities that the uniform shirt, or replica jersey as it is known in the store, is seen in the hundreds, even at spring training where things havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t begun to get serious. They are listed at $119.99 in Canada. And people arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wearing some old replica jersey with Jesse Barfieldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name on the back. No, these jerseys, most of them worn by grown men, have the names from the current roster on the back, not only names from the current roster but names of players, like Dickey and Reyes, who arrived in off-season trades and havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t played a regular season game yet. Of course the wearers of these jerseys, aside from Reyes and Dickey themselves, must surely be Canadians. And you realize how many Canadians there are in this small Florida town when the anthems are played and O Canada is actually sung by a large number of people. Then the Star Spangled Banner is played and what seems to be an equal number of voices is heard. Mercifully, no animosity is detected between the singers of the different songs. But then, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spring training. Published weekly by:

As a result, our opinions and beliefs are quite narrow because we continually look for people who support and affirm our long-held beliefs. Even darker perhaps is that children develop the tendency to discriminate as young as age six. It’s around this time they start to notice differences

Do they play the same sports? Do they worship at the same church? Probably. And chances are your own friends belong to that same, homogenous circle, too. There are obvious repercussions to this when it comes to creating policies designed to enhance diversity in workplaces, schools and society. At a more personal level, how-

The sad truth is that people instinctively gravitate toward people like themselves between themselves and other children. Have you observed that when your little boy was a pre-schooler he invited more girls to his birthday parties or played with whichever kid happened to be at the park, regardless of skin colour, age or clothing? Yet, if you look at his current group of friends, are they -- and their families -- more like him and his family? Are they the same gender?

ever, unless we reconcile this tendency to hang out with our own kind, we are also limiting our own ability to grow. It’s commonly known that stretching ourselves through new experiences -- travel, jobs, education -- is the only way to change and grow. It’s the same thing when it comes to people.

our thinking and enriching our lives, it’s primarily through people we meet that we will achieve the most or have the most valuable exchanges of information. But if we want to diversify our network, we have to do it purposely and consciously. And that’s not easy. It means positioning yourself as an outsider -- a minority, if you will -- in every social encounter. There are, however, a few easy ways to get started. The next time you go to an event that you regularly attend -- say a meeting or a cocktail party -- seek out one person that you’ve never spoken to before. Ask him questions about himself. Find out why he’s attending the event. Ultimately, try to find something in common with him. Make a point to have a number of interactions like this each month and watch as your network becomes a mosaic. If you really want to stretch yourself, attend a class or a lecture that you think is completely outside your realm of interest. You may be surprised at who you meet there. More importantly, however, teach your school-aged children to do the same. Guide them to befriend outsiders that come on the perimeters of their own, established social circles. It’s by teaching our children that we can best shape our future. Let’s make it an open, accepting and innovative one.

Less than a month ago, Ontario made history and our new Premier, Kathleen Wynne, was officially sworn in. I was honoured to be asked to serve in her cabinet as the new Minister of Energy, in addition to serving Ottawa West-Nepean as your MPP. Once again, Ottawa has a strong presence in our provincial cabinet. We have three incredible MPPs from our region at the cabinet table. Ottawa-Vanier’s Madeleine Meilleur continues to serve as Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services and Minister Responsible for Francophone Affairs, and Ottawa Centre’s Yasir Naqvi joins cabinet as Minister of Labour. It’s a compelling team, and we will continue to fight for Ottawa’s interests and ensure our community is well served by this provincial government. This is a serious cabinet for serious times. As always, we are ready to put in the hard work to continue to reduce the deficit, create jobs, and maintain the services Ontarians care deeply about. Most importantly, we are working with our colleagues across the aisle to find common ground and make the Legislature work. On February 19, the Ontario Legislature returned with a new Speech from the Throne, outlining our government’s priorities for the upcoming session. The speech highlighted the Wynne government’s way forward so Ontario can continue to build a fair society and a strong economy. We will keep working to eliminate the deficit by 2017-18, maintain our focus on job creation, and invest in health care and education.

ave you ever watched a small child enter a new social situation? Perhaps it’s a playgroup or a local park. Depending on the child, she will likely take a while to play on the perimeter and observe the others, before picking someone to play beside. Eventually, the child will interact with the strangers, finding some point of common interest -- the same yellow shovel, a cute flower on both their dresses. She doesn’t mind if they’re boys or girls, black or white. She doesn’t ask about religion or politics. She just finds something in common and makes a new friend. It’s remarkable, really. And according to research on the science of networking, it’s something that adults should be emulating. The sad truth is that people instinctively gravitate toward people like themselves. This is the easiest way to form associations -- we know that people like us will share the same norms. And if they broadly share our opinions about the world, we won’t have to deal with too much conflict. Sounds great, right? The dark side to this is that if we are naturally inclined to befriend people who look like us, share the same religion and politics and maybe even have common cultural backgrounds, we are not as open to befriend-

Investigating public complaints fairly and independently On March 5 I brought forward a motion asking the Board of Trustees to support writing a letter to the Premier of Ontario and leaders of the ofďŹ cial opposition to ask them to re-introduce and support legislation to modernize the Ombudsman Act in order to permit the Ontario Ombudsman to investigate public complaints involving school boards as well as universities, hospitals and municipalities (the â&#x20AC;&#x153;MUSHâ&#x20AC;? sector). Many provinces have moved in this direction. It would provide third party recourse for parents when conďŹ&#x201A;icts with a school board are left unresolved and a fair and independent mechanism to review school board adherence to provincial policies or directives, such as with respect to bullying, special education, student safety, transportation etc. In 2011-2012, the Ombudsman received 119 complaints and inquiries about Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school boards. None of them could be dealt with.

Extra-Curricular Activities I am pleased that the Ontario Secondary School Teachersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Federation (OSSTF) has asked its members to suspend their political action related to extra-curricular activities. Since these activities were withdrawn over 200 community volunteers at the secondary and elementary school level went through our selection process to help with extra-curricular sports, clubs and activities. It is now time to bring our secondary teachers and volunteers together to provide these activities, which will enhance the extra-curricular services provided to the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s student body. With respect to the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (ETFO) decision to continue its political action against the same activities, I am disappointed that the federationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leadership has chosen this path, a course that only serves to further punish our youngest learners. The Ontario government and the OSSTF have recommitted themselves to having a more respectful dialogue and both have shown some good-will in an effort to start talking again. I encourage EFTO to do the same.

EMC news - Area artist Valerie Hoffman is hoping to provide a space for women to get together to discuss challenges they face in the business world. The Barrhaven mom founded the Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Barrhaven Business Network with voice teacher and former colleague Sarah Ripley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are kids to deal with and supper to be made,â&#x20AC;? Hoffman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We thought it would be good have a support for women with businesses.â&#x20AC;? Ripley and Hoffman launched the network with a party at the Barley Mow in Barrhaven on Jan. 25, with a membership of more than 30. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going really well,â&#x20AC;? Hoffman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite ďŹ gured out the format yet. We are going to let the members tell us what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see.â&#x20AC;? Hoffman said members are quite diverse. There are members who are ďŹ nancial planners as well as photographers. The groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Facebook page is now up to 44 members since the launch. The group has already starting forming partnerships to connect one entrepreneur with the services of another, something Hoffman said she hoped to see shortly after the January launch.

handle the absolute maximum amount of trafďŹ c expected in one peak hour of the day and towards a system that would spread out demand over a few hours. That would mean fewer road widenings and fewer new roads, reducing the pressure to construct roads by about 15 per cent. As participants tried to wrap their heads around that change, there was general agreement. Another major change would give transportation plan-

ners the framework they need to be able to build â&#x20AC;&#x153;complete streets,â&#x20AC;? something residents in the core have increasingly been calling for. The change would reduce the focus on building a road with the main intention of serving cars and instead prioritize the needs of pedestrians, cyclists and transit vehicles, said strategic transportation planning manager Kornel Mucsi.

0307.R0011951357

EMC news - Civic-minded software developers can cash in from across the country with the second edition of the App 4Ottawa contest. There is less money available this time around, but a total of $38,000 entirely sponsored by private companies will be available for tech-savvy Canadians who can take the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s open data and turn it into a useful application for Ottawa residents. The first iteration of the contest in 2010 offered $50,000 in prize money, but it was all funded by the city. Categories this year include: On the Move, Having Fun, Your City and a new category for data analysis and visualization. Developers can draw on the 63 data sets and 121 data files on ottawa.ca that provide information on everything from childcare facilities to garbage schedules. While techies stand to win money from the contest, Ottawa residents will see a great benefit in the form of useful new applications that make their lives easier and help them take advantage of city services, said IT subcommittee chairman, Beacon Hill-Cyrville Coun. Tim Tierney. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a platform for citizens and developers to connect and innovate,â&#x20AC;? he said. Before IT wizards get to work developing applications for the web and mobile devices, residents can give their two cents in the Idea Jam. Until March 10, residents can submit ideas for the kinds of applications they would find useful at www.apps4ottawa.ca. Developers

can refer to that list when deciding what kind of app they will create for the contest. The period for app submissions will run from March 11 to May 12, and a jury of city staff, sponsors and members of the academic community will judge the apps starting May 13, and voting for the Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Choice award will open during that time. The winners will be announced at a showcase in June. Gaining a suite of corporate sponsors, including title sponsor Microsoft Canada, is a big deal, Tierney said. The sponsors are providing $3,000 for the top prize in each category, and Microsoft is kicking in an extra $2,000 for the best app built on the Microsoft Windows 8 or its Azure platform. Nik Garkuska, open platforms lead for Microsoft Canada, said innovation and community engagement are key for the company. Open data provides an opportunity for citizens to do something meaningful for their city and Microsoft wanted to be a part of that, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The data just provides this common language that connects the citizens with technology folks,â&#x20AC;? he said. Partnering with the contest also provides new business opportunities for upstart developers in Ottawa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; developers who might use Microsoft products and develop products to be used on Microsoft platforms and devices. Mayor Jim Watson said he is looking forward to the creative ideas and apps that come out of the contest. He expects to see more interest than the 90 entries the contest netted last time.

Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s #1 Ranked Soccer Club

OSU Academy Player Dylan Lawrence headed to St. FX X-Men After playing for the Ottawa South United Force Academy for the past three years, Dylan Lawrence is now ready to move on to the next stage in his life. The Holy Trinity Catholic High School senior recently signed with the St. Francis Xavier X-Men, and will now spend the next four to five years of his life playing Canadian university soccer in Nova Scotia. St. FX Head Coach Graham Kennedy considers the talented OSU product a coup for the X-Men. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are absolutely delighted to have a student-athlete like Dylan join our program,â&#x20AC;? Kennedy says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am excited about his potential. We are â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the little school than can,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and with recruits like Dylan joining our team, we will succeed.â&#x20AC;?

Eye on the ball

It was at the 2012 OSU Showcase Tournament that X-Men associate coach Miroslav Novak saw Lawrence play. Strangely enough, however, it was St. FXâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team coach Trevor Reddick who first noticed Lawrence at a local soccer event six years ago. Impressed by then 12-year-old Lawrenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soccer tricks, Reddick casually mentioned to the young boy that he should play for St. FX one day.

Marwan Syeed, centre, jumps for the ball as he plays for Merivale High School in the tier one junior boys basketball championship on Feb. 28. Merviale lost a close game to Lester B. Pearson at home to finish second.

Lawrenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soccer skills have gotten him even more attention recently as he is the co-star of two Youtube videos that feature Lawrence and teammate Stephen Veenema performing tricks around various locations in downtown Ottawa. The first video has over 14,000 views, while the second was officially sponsored by Ottawa Tourism.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We definitely did not expect the outcome we got from the first video,â&#x20AC;? recounts Lawrence, who helped with editing and production of the videos. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Having CTV and CBC radio contact us about the video, that really motivated us to make another one.â&#x20AC;? Lawrence has parlayed his video editing skills into his own company: Tacklebox Productions. They are currently filming promotional videos for Jumpstart Canada, a program dedicated to helping less fortunate children get involved in sports. While he would like to polish his production skills during his time at St. FX, Lawrence knows that his new teammates will be counting on him to produce on the pitch as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully, I can help them win a championship because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a few years since theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve won one,â&#x20AC;? highlights the playmaking midfielder. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My long-term dream is to play in the MLS, and I hope my route through St. FX will help me reach it.â&#x20AC;? Lawrence credits his time at OSU for giving him the foundation to reach for the next level. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I loved playing for the OSU. They treated me really well and gave me every opportunity I could get to help me get a scholarship and it paid off,â&#x20AC;? explains the captain of the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;95 Force boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anybody who is planning to play at the university level, they provide you with opportunities like tournaments and showcases that get you the chance to be seen by university coaches.â&#x20AC;? While Lawrence is already developing a solid relationship with his new coaches at St. FX, including head coach Graham Kennedy, he says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll definitely miss his teammates and mentors from OSU.

EMC news - Despite a few setbacks before and during the event, environmentalist David Suzuki and former CIBC economist Jeff Rubin captivated their audience at Centretown United Church on Feb. 26. The lecture and book-signing event was hosted by independent bookstore Octopus Books as part of the pairâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eco Tour across the country. Rubin is promoting his book The End of Growth, which argues that high oil prices will slow the economy while simultaneously reducing greenhouse gas emissions - both good things. Suzuki complemented Rubinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s point with his idea that people, politicians and nations need to stop prioritizing human constructs like the economy and make clean air, water and soil the top priority. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In a city our highest priority becomes our job,â&#x20AC;? he told the audience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You need a job to give you money to buy the things you want. The economy is perceived as our highest priority.â&#x20AC;? He said society created the economy to serve us, and now we live to serve the economy: we are under constant pressure to consume more stuff to keep the economic engine chugging. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ever since the end of World War Two weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been afflicted with a terrible appetite for stuff,â&#x20AC;?

eral Green Party leader Elizabeth May stepped in at the last minute - a pleasant surprise for the many environmentalists in the audience. The two intellectuals, on paper, may not seem likely tour buddies. Rubin is the former chief economist for CIBC World Markets, where he worked for more than 20 years. Suzuki, a geneticist, is best known for his views on the environment and sustainable ecology. But the pair agree that humans canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t keep living the way they are if they want to survive - and they both agree that a slowing economy is good for us in the long run. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When a real economist tells us weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at the end of growth, I got excited,â&#x20AC;? Suzuki told the audience, joking that no one listens to environmentalists on such matters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No one can tell him he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what the hell heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talking about.â&#x20AC;? Despite its success the event had its rocky moments. Minutes before the event was supposed to start, an Octopus Books employee asked the audience to call 911 to remove a Sun News reporting team, who wanted to film the event. May, however, stepped in, shouting â&#x20AC;&#x153;Only Rob Ford calls 911 for media.â&#x20AC;? She hugged the reporter and cameraman and asked them to return at the end of the event for one-onone interviews. And minor calamity struck again when just a few minutes into his presentation Rubin tripped and fell off the raised platform that served as their stage. He recovered quickly and the lecture continued smoothly for the rest of the evening. R0021954908

EMC news - The bicentennial of the War of 1812 received a lot of media and public attention in eastern Ontario last year and deservedly so. Due to its strategic position as a supply and communications route to Upper Canada, the defence of the St. Lawrence corridor was paramount in the eyes of military and civilian leadership. For this reason, the hard-won victory by outnumbered British regulars, Canadian militia and First Nations allies at the Battle of Crysler’s Farm in 1813 was dubbed “a battle that saved Canada.” As communities across eastern Ontario begin planning commemorations of events that took place in 1813, businesses in the services sector should be paying more attention to heritage and cultural tourism. Cultural tourism refers to visits by persons interested in the historical, artistic, lifestyle or heritage offerings of an area. Most of these visitors seek personal experiences and participate in more activities than other travelers, preferring smaller establishments that offer unique exposures to local culture, cuisine, nature and people.

Many are well educated and have a higher disposable income and, more importantly, spend more – on average up to one third more than other tourists. What does this mean for eastern Ontario? To begin with, we must stand out from the competition. Consider this: eastern Ontario is a cradle of Canadian history and culture. We have many historic holdings, museums and attractions going back to the 18th and early 19th centuries and people who proudly trace their lineage to early Upper Canadian settlers. So, how about transforming this area into a heritage tourism haven? A place where thousands of people dress in Colonial and Regency periods clothing and re-enact in mass staged productions, hundreds of artisans use locally grown or produced materials to manufacture crafts and foods, hundreds of pubs and restaurants offer local ales or imaginative and historically-accurate meals. An example of this creativity, on a very small scale, is the Spencerville Mill’s Heritage Fair. Staged around the mill’s bicentennial, residents got involved in making Regencystyle dresses, learned how to

dance to English country music, formed an 1812-style militia unit, and attended various events and lectures about life in Upper Canada around the War of 1812 period. The result was a transformation of a small village of about 300 residents. During one rainy weekend it hosted 239 people dressed in Regency period outfits, coming from as far as Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa and the U.S. Alas, the event did not beat the Guinness World Record (409 people), but many had a lot of fun trying and will attempt it again this year. The event generated work for local seamstresses, craftspeople and the local hospitality industry. In 2013, the Spencerville Mill is teaming up with the City of Brockville’s Tall Ships Festival and the Bicentennial Alliance of the War of 1812 to bring together a Month of Amazing Experiences running from June 14 to July 14, culminating in the Battle of Crysler’s Farm military re-enactment weekend. With a bold marketing strategy reaching out to residents in U.K., the U.S., visiting friends and families, and diplomatic communities from Montreal to Toronto, it’s hoped thousands of people will visit the region.

Ottawa flags new football program for youth Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s young people will have the chance to hit the gridiron this spring when a new flag football league starts up at Carleton University. The Canadian Football Institute is organizing the 5 on 5 Youth Flag Football program, which will start up on May 25. Scott Endicott, the instituteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s president, said it is for youth looking to become more familiar with the rules of the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The biggest thing about the program is that its noncompetitive,â&#x20AC;? he said. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about having fun.â&#x20AC;? The sessions will run every Saturday for two hours, with a half hour practice before the games. Games will last 90 minutes. Participants will be divided according to their birth year and will learn agility drills, the basic concepts of the game as well as skills such as hand offs, passing, receiving, defending and flag pulling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The program offers ongoing learning about the game, tips and tricks for the kids to pick up on,â&#x20AC;? Endicott said. The teams are coached by volunteers and the league is looking for parents to help out with the teams as well. The program will cost $250 for the season, which lasts for five weeks, but the price ensures each child will have a chance to play every position in the weekly games, he said. Registration is now open. Visit www.cflonline.ca for more information, to register or to sign up as a coach.

Ottawa to cheer for yellow and black Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC sports - A month after head coach Dan Church’s father passed away from cancer, the national women’s hockey team announced they would don yellow and black for their first game of the world championships in Ottawa. The Livestrong jersey celebrates a cancer charity, Livestrong, started by cyclist Lance Armstrong. Agosta said the team was quick to embrace the third jersey, because everyone has been affected by cancer at some point, not just Church. “I think we’re doing something for everybody who has lost somebody whose near and dear to them,” she said. “When we found out about it, we were very excited to hop on board. It’s going to make the atmosophere that much better.” She also said she’s excited to be coming back to Ottawa, which she described as “hockey city” after playing at Scotiabank Place in 2010. She thinks Ottawa will break records again, after setting a women’s hockey game attendance record after 16,347 fans came out to watch Canada play the U.S.A. on Jan. 1, 2010. The women’s world hockey

on April 2. For the first game of the women’s world hockey championships

on April 2, the special third jersey will be worn. “Hockey Canada has changed co-

lours of jerseys before, but they’ve never changed the colour of the logo, so this is a very special time,” said player Meghan Agosta. Agosta, along with teammates Gillian Apps, Jayna Hefford and Tessa Bonhomme were at SportChek at Place d’Orléans Shopping Centre on Feb. 27 to unveil the jerseys. Livestrong Foundation president and CEO Doug Ulman was in Ottawa for the presentation, and highlighted one of the programs that Livestrong funds, called cancer transitions. He said the transition program helps cancer survivors “find the new normal” after they finish treatment. “As a cancer survivor myself, I can tell you the impact these programs have,” Ulman said. Church said that besides losing his father, he had a player at York University diagnosed with cancer just over a week into the season. “She said to me, “Coach, I can’t play this year, I’ve just been diagnosed with cancer.’ She’s a cancer survivor, won her battle,” he said. “The grace and dignity she had during her fight with cancer had … a strong impact on me (and) all the athletes that she played with for many years.”

No such thing as can’t for Algonquin grad Chelsea Brunette

EMC news - Sometimes, the word “can’t” seems more like the word “impossible.” Can’t is like a brick wall, and once you hit it, it doesn’t seem worthwhile to keep trying. Chapel Hill resident and former Algonquin student Kyle Humphrey knows what it’s like to be told that he can’t do something. Humphrey was born with spina bifida, a con-

vocabulary,” said Humphrey. During the Christmas holidays, he received several bags of rubber band bracelets to help spread awareness, and there’s a Facebook page where people interested in participating in NSTAC can comment, like or share the page. Humphrey is also working on an official webpage, looking into getting NSTAC hats and shirts and writing a rap with local Ottawa artist Rishi Sood to promote the initiative.

dition that sees the spine on the outside the body and he wasn’t expected to be able to walk, sit up or stand. He’s accomplished all three. Humphrey, 23, launched an initiative called No Such Thing As Can’t last November. Its mission is to teach people that can’t is just a mindset and to help people who face physical challenges live to their full potential. “NSTAC is a program that hopes to redefine ability and the way we interact with one another,” said Humphrey. “My hope is that one day the word ‘disabled’ will no longer be used when referring to a person.” Since birth, Humphrey had over 80 surgeries with CHEO and has Arnold-Chiari syndrome and hydrocephalus. Arnold-Chiari is a defect that can slow the flow of spinal fluid and hydrocephalus is a buildup of fluid on the brain. But he doesn’t let any of that hold him back. “There is no ‘can’t’ in my

“I think it’s a great idea; those five words can actually be a really powerful phrase,” said Charles Soifer, close friend of Humphrey. “It can really keep someone’s head above water.” Soifer said he believes people can benefit from NSTAC because those who’ve had a hard time in their lives can help each other and make others feel less alone. It’s an initiative where everyone involved gets a chance to help others who need it. But like any new initiative, things are starting out slow. TAKE THE TIME

“I think that for me, my biggest struggle is finding people who will listen, finding people who will take the time and say ‘Yeah, we should change that, we should change our views on this,’” said Humphrey. “I think that’s the biggest struggle for everybody. Everybody who has any kind of differ-

Kyle Humphrey wants to ditch the word “can’t” and just show the world what each individual is capable of achieving. He’s launched No Such Thing As Can’t, which can be found on Facebook. ence, whether it’s physical, social, mental, whatever it is, is a stigma. I would like the chance to end stigma in general if I can.” Despite the difficulties of getting NSTAC noticed, he keeps a level head and doesn’t let that discourage him. “Kyle is one of the most driven people I have ever met. He gets an idea in his head and he rolls with it, no pun intended,” said Neil Young, also a close friend and systems analyst at treasury board

secretariat for Shared Services Canada. “He has taken the best of a bad situation and he always sees the positive in people … he notices the opportunity to educate people.” Humphrey said he has never really received any special treatment and he’s a normal guy who finds it annoying when people act otherwise. NSTAC tries to make others aware of the fact that he, along with others who have physical barriers, don’t want or need any special treatment;

they want to be regarded like everyone else. “People see a disabled person as different,” said Young. “Obvious reasons aside, Kyle wants to break down the stereotype. After all, he crowd surfed at the Billy Talent show during Bluesfest a few years ago, in his wheelchair. Not only impressive, but awesome.” Humphrey would like to turn NSTAC into a charity, but the process can be quite expensive. He said he hopes that

if he’s accepted into the child and youth worker program at Algonquin College this fall, he will be able to organize a charity through the school. “I would like to showcase what people are able to do and have ‘ability’ be a word and have ‘disability’ be gone, because we’re able in different ways,” said Humphrey.

CHILD WELFARE AWARENESS MONTH The Canadian Association of Social Workers celebrates National Social Work Week to recognize social workers contribution to society. The theme this year is: “Restoring Hope: The power of Social Work”. Throughout the month of March, the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa (CASO) is taking this one step further and bringing awareness to all workers associated with child welfare. These individuals play an important role in ensuring children, youth and families of our community are kept safe and secure. They are involved with the planning and delivery of a variety of services, such as: family support services, advocacy, foster care placement, and child protection, to name a few. They seldom get the recognition they deserve, in fact, if things go well, we never hear about it. There are many committed individuals whose efforts have made positive changes in the lives of countless vulnerable children and families.

Fury is new team’s name Eddie Rwema eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC sports – Ottawa’s North American Soccer League franchise will be called the Ottawa Fury FC, owners announced during a press conference on Feb. 25 at Algonquin College. The decision follows a team-naming contest that generated more than 4,000 suggestions. Club president and owner John Pugh said they saw no reason of changing the name that is already associated with success. “After so much deliberation, we decided that no name surpassed that of the Fury, which already associates Ottawa across Canada and the United States with the winning culture, success on the field, stability off the field and an attractive brand of soccer,” he said amid cheers from fans who waited eagerly for the announcement. The only change imbedded in the name is FC, for football club.

EMC news - For those living in the nation’s capital, running during the winter season can prove to be a dangerous feat. With temperatures dropping down to almost 40-below, it’s no wonder we hear about slips and falls causing grave injuries. Judy Thomson, store manager at the Orléans Running Room, says the biggest cause of injury during winter running is people falling on ice. This can lead to twisted ankles, broken wrists or banged up elbows. Although adapting from summer JANIK SHANNON running to winter running seems terWith snowfalls such as the ones greeting the arrival of March, it be- rifying to those new to it, it’s a transicomes essential for runners to stay aware of winter risks. The layers will tion that can be made easier with the start coming off with spring-like weather, but hydration, nutrition and help of a few accessories and layers. “A lot of people have to look in other precautions are still key to healthy running.

(their) closet because you might already have something for downhill skiing, skating on the canal or for Winterlude,” said Thomson. The most important apparel needed is a breathable base layer along with a windbreaker jacket, gloves or mitts, a tuque or balaclava, thermal socks and the right shoes. Thomson says that a part of running which people tend to neglect is nutrition and keeping hydrated. Although you might not think of needing water while running during the winter, it’s important to keep yourself hydrated. Nutrition-wise, it’s easy to lose sight of sugar levels, so an easy solution is to have a Gatorade or similar beverage after your run. For some people, their opinions regarding winter running cannot be changed.

“It isn’t that great for your lungs,” Alanna Carolyn said of cold-weather runs. “Mine hurt and I coughed for a few days when I ran in the cold. Then I read up on it (and) they say it isn’t very good in really cold weather.” Still worried about running outside? There are indoor gyms all over Orléans that can be used as alternatives. There are also plenty of websites and applications that can be of use when it comes to finding running routes and tracking your progress such as Map My Run, Runner’s World, Run Ottawa Club and Run My Route. There’s always the possibility that a fall may happen, but by being careful and properly equipped your chances can definitely be lowered.

Affordable ideas during spring break for families EMC news - During the February blahs, many students are asking the same question: what are we going to do for spring break? Taking a vacation to a tropical destination is a popular choice, but can be difficult on a budget. Instead of breaking the bank on a trip this year, budget savvy students and families are considering a ‘staycation’ instead. Here are some ideas: • Act like a tourist: Many big city dwellers never take time to go sightseeing in their own backyard and it’s easy to take nearby attractions for granted. A staycation is a great time to check out the popular sites or hidden gems in your own city, without the pressure of school and work. • Video game tournaments: If the weather in your area makes it impossible to get outside, organize a gaming

tournament. If your staycation partners are sports fans, have your own Stanley Cup Playoffs or NBA Finals with sports games for PlayStation 3. • A day at the movies: Another great indoor activity is a movie marathon. Consider implementing a theme for the day to make things a little more exciting, and invite friends to get creative with themed snacks or costumes. Or, if you’re staycationing with your family, watch movies that feature family vacations. • Splurge a little: You’re saving money by not heading out of town so why not treat yourself to something you wouldn’t normally budget for? Consider hiring a cleaning service to do all your chores, or plan a spa day to help you relax before school and work start up again. News Canada

RA Centre to host wheelchair curling championships Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - The RA Centre announced it will play host to this year’s Canadian wheelchair curling championships at the end of this month. The 2013 Wheelchair Curling Championships will welcome 10 teams from across Canada to the RA Centre from March 24-31. The centre is one of the most accessible facilities in the city for wheelchair curling, according to the Canadian Curling Association. Wheelchair curling clubs are welcomed weekly to train, play or learn the sport. The Ottawa Valley Curling Association, the Canadian Curling Association and members of the RA Centre announced the championship’s venue on March 2. “This is possibly the best centre, not only in Ottawa or Canada, but the world, to host wheelchair curling,” said Jamie Eddy of the Capital Curling Wheelchairs Club. Eddy and more than 30 members of his club attended the announcement, which also offered an opportunity to participate in a clinic on how to learn to wheelchair curl. This will be the second time the accessible centre will host the championships. The first was in 2007. More than 80 volunteers will help make sure the week runs smoothly, with everything from ticket sales to registration, said Elaine Brimicombe

“Everything is a variable,” Hoar said. “And every time you throw it is does something different.” Hoar and fellow curler, Sarah Shima decided to give the sport a try as a means to get out of the house in the winter time. “It’s so easy to become housebound in the winter, in a wheelchair,” Hoar said. “This game makes you get out of the house two to three times a week.” At the RA Centre the wheelchair curlers integrate with able-bodied curlers to play. Shima explains that although they are playing with a team who do have sweepers, the opportunity to play with these teams becomes a great MICHELLE NASH/METROLAND learning experience. “To have the chance to play The RA Centre will host the 2013 Wheelchair Curling Championships on March 24-31.

  Dear Neighbours, February may be a short month, but there was no shortage of activities. I was pleased to attend the many Winter Carnivals and Fun Days throughout Bay Ward. I spent an evening with a local Scout Troop and being a former cub scout myself, it was lots of fun. I also took time with the many volunteers who look after our outdoor rinks. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a difďŹ cult and demanding job and I was happy to say â&#x20AC;&#x153;thank youâ&#x20AC;&#x153; at the annual appreciation breakfast. It canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all be fun and games of course and this past month my team and I worked hard at hosting a couple of events focussing on more serious issues to residents. LRT PRESENTATION I was pleased to attend and host a LRT presentation with the Wednesday Fellowship Group at All Saints Lutheran Church. City staff came out to give the group an update on the current plans, timelines and answered any questions they had on the LRT project. I want to also thank them for the lovely lunch and conversation following the presentation. My ofďŹ ce would be pleased to arrange a presentation for your group as well. ECONOMIC RE-DEVELOPMENT We had a great turnout on a very cold evening for our community meeting on Economic Re-development. We discussed plans for the re-development of Carling Avenue between Pinecrest Road and Bayshore Drive. We are still in the early stages of planning but we hope residents will see visible changes on Carling Avenue in late 2013 and early 2014. I am conďŹ dent the new growth and enhancements on Carling Avenue will provide fulďŹ lling easily accessible jobs for local residents and give people a real sense of community. CRYSTAL BAY ACCESSES I attended the Crystal Bay Annual General Meeting where I was pleased to speak to residents on the issue of public access to the Ottawa River. My ofďŹ ce in cooperation with City Staff is working hard on this issue to clarify some of the concerns raised by local residents. We will keep you up to date as more details become available and decisions are made. ONTARIO RENOVATES PROGRAM IN OTTAWA I am excited to tell you about a new program which will start this spring and will beneďŹ t low-income seniors and eligible disabled residents. The goal of the program which was approved by Council is to help seniors and those with disabilities to continue to live independently. Seniors who qualify could repair such things as heating & electrical systems, chimneys, doors, windows and plumbing. Those living with a disability could beneďŹ t with modiďŹ cations to increase accessibility like ramps, handrails, chair lifts and height adjustment for countertops. The Ontario Renovates Program will begin on April 2, 2013 and run for two years. As more information becomes available it will be posted to our website.

The Capital Chordettes will mark five decades of music with a Big Band Dance and Concert on March 9 at the Ron Kolbus Lakeside Centre.

Capital Chordettes hit 50 EMC news - Throughout 2013, the Capital Chordettes are celebrating 50 years of entertaining Ottawa area audiences. The Capital Chordettes are a dynamic, awardwinning chorus of 40 women of all ages and from all walks of life who sing a cappella, four-part harmony. To mark this momentous year, several special events are being held, including a Big Band Dance and Concert on March 9 at the Ron Kolbus Lakeside Centre. A FAMILY CONNECTION

Charter member Elaine Dunlop has been singing with the chorus since 1963. At that time she was a young mother at home with

her children and looked forward to getting out every Tuesday night. Dunlop continues to enjoy the social interaction with other women and loves to sing with many voices. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I enjoy my part fitting in with all the others,â&#x20AC;? says Dunlop. There is a strong family connection to the Capital Chordettes for Dunlop. Her husband Jerry Dunlop directed the chorus from 1971 to 1990 and her daughter Carolyn Henderson became the current director in 2007. One of the events marking the 50th anniversary of the Capital Chordettes is a combined big band dance and concert. Guests will enjoy a variety of music from the 1930s to the present with the Capital Chordettes

and Standing Room Only, a 15-piece big band. BIG BAND

This event takes place on March 9, from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. at the Ron Kolbus Lakeside Centre, 102 Greenview Ave. Tickets are $21 online at www.capitalchordettes.ca or $24 at the door (cash only). The ticket price includes coffee, tea and light snacks. Water, juice and soft drinks may be purchased at reasonable prices. For more information, visit www.capitalchordettes.ca or call/email Cathy Thompson at 613-692-2457 or cathy202t@sympatico.ca.

churn -- before that it was as white as the driven snow. She was going through her reli-

gious phase and Audrey fell right in with Mother’s orders that we five children think long and hard at what we could give up in the name of Lent. My brother Earl wanted everyone to know he was giving up whittling. Audrey thought it had to be something you ate, so Earl switched to turnips. Emerson, who said he was giving up pie, lasted one meal, so he switched to gum. His chances of getting a package of gum were pretty slim back in the 30s, so that wasn’t much of sacrifice for Emerson. Everett loved dill pickles and he told everyone within earshot he wouldn’t be taking another dill until Mother told him Lent was over. Now, I loved my food. I ate every meal as if it was my last one on earth. I hated head cheese and blood pudding, but this time of year

OPEN HOUSE

I gave something up, and told no one. Audrey said she would think about it. Finally she said: “I see no reason why you have to tell anyone. It’s between you and God.” I said a silent thank your for this bit of information. I decided there and then to give up licorice pipes.

our supply of both had pretty well run out. I had no idea what I could give up that wouldn’t seriously affect my mealtimes. I thought long and hard, but couldn’t come up a thing. I took my problem to my older and much wiser sister Audrey, who was always able to come up with a solution to just about anything that ailed me. She suggested I give up either butterscotch discs or baloney, both of which she knew I loved with a passion, ever so much more that licorice pipes and humbugs which Mr. Briscoe often thrust in my hand at his general store. Little did he know, I either used them to bribe my brother Emerson or tossed them into the nearest shrubbery on the way home -- I had no taste for either. Both of them always made me think of Cascara, which Mother had great faith in, and whether we needed it or not we were often made take a heaping spoonful “just in case.” In case of what I had no idea! I knew perfectly well if I gave up baloney or butterscotch discs, I wouldn’t last a week. I asked my sister Audrey if God would mind if I kept my sacrifice to myself. If it would be diluted if

s far as Father was concerned, Mother had taken this Lent business too far. Giving up meat herself every Friday all year was one thing, but taking it off the menu for everyone during Lent was another kettle of fish altogether. No meal was complete without a good platter of meat on the table, according to Father, and now Lent was here, whatever that meant. Not only did Father think Mother’s idea of everyone giving up meat on Fridays was like asking a farmer to give up chores, but now she was pressing everyone to give up something they loved for the entire few weeks of Lent. She suggested Father might want to give up his pipe: as if to show his defiance, he put a match to it, which was already going at full steam. “It will be good discipline for the children,” Mother said and she asked us to think long and hard at what each of us could sacrifice. Mother said if we wanted, we could give up something and not tell anyone else what it was. It would be our secret between us and God. Well, my sister Audrey wanted everyone to know she was giving up butter. Audrey loved butter,

Food safety for ages 5 and under Brighten up your winter To protect them from getting sick, follow these key steps to food safety: Cook: To prevent illness, it is extremely important to cook meat and poultry to a safe internal temperature. Remember, visual cues like colour are not a guarantee that food is safe. Don’t guess! Use a digital food thermometer to check when meat and poultry are safe to eat. Clean: Properly clean anything that comes in contact with the food (your hands, kitchen surfaces and utensils, reusable grocery bags, etc.) and always have your children wash their hands before eating. This will help eliminate bacteria and reduce your family’s risk of getting sick. In addition, fruits and vegetables should be washed under clean running water. Chill: It is extremely important to keep cold food cold and hot food hot so that your food never reaches the temperature “danger zone,” which is between 4 C and 60 C. Defrosting raw meat, poultry and fish should be “That was way to easy!”

done in the refrigerator, in the microwave, or immersed in cold water (replaced every 30 minutes), never at room temperature. Separate: It is important to always separate your raw foods, such as meat and eggs, from ready-to-eat foods, such as cooked meat and vegetables, to avoid cross-contamination. Parents and caregivers should also pay close attention to what they are feeding young children. Some foods are at a higher risk for foodborne bacteria than others. • Make sure to cook hot dogs until they are steaming hot before young children eat them. • Do not serve raw alfalfa or bean sprouts to young children. • Never give your child foods containing raw eggs (e.g. cookie dough, cake batter). • Avoid unpasteurized milk, juice and cider. • Don’t eat raw or undercooked meat, poultry, fish or seafood. “I just clicked and saved 90%”

meals with fresh citrus

EMC lifestyle - It may be cold and bleak outside, but your meals don’t have to be. Preparing meals with a sweet splash of citrus not only adds flavour, but also nutrients that can help energize you during the dreary months. “While many fresh fruits and vegetables are out of season in winter, Florida grapefruit is at its peak,” says registered dietitian Lydia Knorr. “Citrus fruit and juices have tremendous flavour, provide your body with a natural boost in energy and are an excellent source of vitamin C.” As a flavour agent and source of essential nutrients, citrus can bring sunshine to any meal. This recipe incorporates citrus fruit and juice for a Thai chicken and grapefruit noodle salad. INGREDIENTS

• 375 g (12 oz) boneless skinless chicken breasts, thinly sliced • 45 ml (3 tbsp) canola oil, divided • 30 ml (2 tbsp) grapefruit juice • 30 ml (2 tbsp) Thai red curry paste • 15 ml (1 tbsp) grated fresh ginger, divided • 15 ml (1 tbsp) fish sauce • 15 ml (1 tbsp) rice vinegar • 1 ml (1/4 tsp) granulated sugar

Add the grapefruit, red pepper, bean sprouts, peanuts and green onion. Drizzle with dressing, toss well and set aside.

EMC news - Health Canada is reminding Canadians of the importance of food safety for children ages five and under. Children ages five and under are at an increased risk for complications from food poisoning (foodborne illness). This is because their immune systems are still developing and they are unable to fight off infection as well as adults can. Young children also produce less of the stomach acid that kills harmful bacteria, which makes it easier for them to get sick. It is estimated that there are approximately 11 million cases of foodborne illnesses in Canada every year. Many of these cases could be prevented by following proper food handling and preparation techniques. While it’s always important for Canadians to follow proper food safety steps, it’s especially important for parents and caregivers to pay close attention to food safety for young children.

Bluesfest organizers announce diverse lineup for 2013

Connected to your community

Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - Organizers are promising a diverse musical experience for this year’s RBC Bluesfest, with booked performers designed to appeal to fans across a wide musical spectrum. The Bluesfest 2013 lineup was announced Feb. 27 amid great anticipation as well as speculation after last year’s festival garnered criticism for its inclusion of what some concert-goers thought was too many electronic

acts and too few blues acts. Organizers clearly hoped to change that impression with a somethingfor-everyone lineup, which includes popular indie/alternative acts like fun., Tegan and Sara, Alex Clare, Mother Mother, Passion Pit and Weezer, along with classic rock acts like Rush, The Tragically Hip and Grand Funk Railroad. Electronic fans can still look forward to seeing Skrillex, while blues fans can anticipate a performance by blues legend B.B. King. Even eccentric Icelandic singer Bjork is on the

bill. In total, over 2,500 musicians will be featured on six stages located at Lebreton Flats - five outdoors and one 250-seat indoor theatre “We consider this year’s line-up to be one of the best of any across North America—it reaches out to a wideranging demographic with cutting edge performances as well as festival favourites,” said programming director Mark Monahan in a media release. Now in its 20th year, Bluesfest will run over 10 days, starting July 4 and wrapping up July 14. The theme will be “Take Me to the River” and orga-

nizers plan to make further announcements regarding confirmed performers in the coming weeks. Entry into the Bluesfest grounds will be by way of transferrable wristbands or single-use day tickets. Admission wristbands went on sale online on Feb. 28 at www.capitaltickets. ca. All ticket types can be also be purchased by calling Scotiabank Place at 613-599-3267. More information on the RBC Bluesfest 2013 lineup and related events can be found at www.ottawabluesfest.ca.

Pet Adoptions LOLA

Meet Lola, a spayed female, black and tan Border Collie and Shepherd mix who is about 5 years old. She was brought to the OHS as a stray on January 29, but is now ready for adoptions! Lola loves to be with people. She is a very outgoing and affectionate dog who would love a family that would keep her in shape by taking her for nice, long, adventurous walks. Lola is a vocal lady, so her perfect fit would be in a single, detached home so she doesn’t get you in trouble with your neighbours. Lola is a smart lady and would like it if her new family would teach her some new tricks, as well as help her perfect her repertoire of basic obedience commands!

Hi there, My name is Pebbles. I was adopted from the new Humane Society on Hunt Club road last November 19th, 2011. I was much smaller then and have doubled in size. I have made best friends with my owner Scott who throws me little rubber balls and toy mice so I can get my exercise. I’m an indoor kitty and need to stretch my legs with a good sprint around the house! He brushes me daily as I have a big fluffy coat that I like to show off. I also have a big purr and sure do like to snuggle with my friend at night. I’m always where the action is and try to help when I can which keeps Scott happy for the great company.

Microchips provide a permanent means of pet identification that will not fade or be lost over time. Owner information can be accessed electronically and immediately, to help ensure a quick return of the lost pet. But while a microchip is a non-removable means of pet identification, your information must be up-to-date if you want the microchip to work. If you have moved or changed your phone number, then your lost pet may not be able to return home. If you adopted your pet from the Ottawa Humane Society or have had your pet “chipped” at one of our microchip clinics, you were given the microchip number and information about the microchip provider.
