EMC news - Aruna Papp never questioned the beatings she received from her husband and her father until she moved to Canada. Papp, who grew up in India and was married by the age of 17, began working as a short-order cook at York University after emigrating in the ’70s. After finding a second job as a women’s locker room attendant, she secretlybegan taking sociology courses in the building next to where she worked. After coming home one night and learning from her daughter that her father had instructed her husband to beat her “because that’s the only language she understands,” she escaped and lived in her car for two weeks before finding a bachelor apartment. Since then she has founded the South Asian Family Services and

works with the York Regional police to educate them on cultural differences and honour based violence. The author of Unworthy Creature: A Punjabi Daughter’s Memoir of Honour, Shame and Love, Papp told the group at an Algonquin College workshop on April 23 that telling her story was tough, but it became necessary to help women gain equal rights. The workshop, In the Name of Honour: Responding to victims of Honour-Based Violence and Forced Marriage, was hosted by the college’s victimology program, the Ottawa police victim crisis unit and the Department of Justice. The workshop marks the fourth year of the college program. It’s a oneyear graduate certificate course that takes grads from social work, policing and nursing.

country’s judicial system. Donna Watson-Elliot, manager of the Ottawa police victim crisis unit, said in a press release that organizers identified a need to train and inform staff to respond to issues of honour-based violence. “Many of the young women we have worked with here in Ottawa have been in high-risk situations,” she said. “While we are certain the cases we are seeing are just the tip of the iceberg, many young women have come forward seeking assistance from police.” To illustrate what can happen when police aren’t aware of risky situations in honourbased societies, Papp showed the 2012 documentary of a young Kurdish girl who was killed by her family in 2006. Banaz Mahmod, who moved to the United Kingdom as a teen, was murdered by her father, uncles and cousins because she left an abusive husband and fell in love with someone else. Banaz: A Love Story

opens with a taped conversation Mahmod had with police about the constant abuse – both physical and sexual in nature – that she received at the hands of her husband. The marriage was arranged by her parents when she was 17. Two years later, she walked out, but went to police because she feared what her family might do for bringing shame on them. Despite the fact that Mahmod kept logs detailing the surveillance from the community and her family, police did very little. Her story ended with her body being buried in a suitcase. Papp said it’s often a lack on knowledge on the behalf of police that can lead to problems identifying risky situations.

becue with her son, who is an officer, and his friends. Now Papp hosts workshops twice a year to explain honour-based violence. Benjamin Roebuck, the coordinator for the Algonquin College victimology program, said the school is happy to provide space for training and dialogue about effective responses to criminal victimization. “We recognize the mutual benefit derived from strategic partnerships between Algonquin College and front line service providers such as the Ottawa Police Services victim service organizations, domestic violence shelters, child protection agencies and other key community programs,” he said.

Humane Society unveils new stamp Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

EMC news - The country will honour its four-legged friends in the form of a commemorative Adopt a Pet commemorative stamp. The stamp, which features actual pets that were up for adoption at the Toronto Humane Society, was unveiled at the Ottawa Humane Society (OHS) facility on West Hunt Club Road on April 22. Linda Barber, chair of the OHS board of directors, said the stamps will bring the message of animal welfare to residents across the country. “It’s fitting that this is happening in the Ottawa Humane Society’s 125th anniversary year,” Barber said. The Ottawa Humane Society takes in 11,000 abandoned and neglected animals per year. Barbara Cartwright, CEO of the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies, said a report in 2011 showed that 600,000 cats and 400,000 dogs were up for adoption across the country that year. Minister of Transport, Steven Fletcher, said Canadian stamps are a great way to celebrate Canadian history and culture. “We live in the best country in the world, at a probably the best time to be a human. We should do what we can to make sure it’s the best time for animals too,” Fletcher said. The stamps, which will feature the like-

Fletcher said when the stamp is removed, Canadians will be symbolically removing the animals from the cages. “We wanted to show real animals currently in the shelter system,” Deepak Chopra, CEO of Canada Post said. “Buddy” a 32-year-old parrot and Mr. Wrinkles a mixed-breed dog, are two of

the characters to be showcased on the new stamps. Both have been adopted after being selected as models. Laureen Harper, who volunteers with the OHS, said she was happy to see animals like parrots shown on the stamps, because it will remind people that it’s not just dogs and cats in need of our help. “Each type of animal has their own rescue society,” she said.

city in 2010 after the Catholic school board declared it surplus. Last year council decided to sell off the land and keep a small parcel as an addition to Maki Park. To keep the school and renovate it would have cost the city $4.3 million and required residents to pay a special levy. The plan chosen by the city maintained some land for the community and recouped some of the cost of purchasing the property. The remaining land is owned by the Ottawa Community Lands Development Corporation (OCLDC) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an arms-length organization operated by the city that can purchase land. Bay Coun. Mark Taylor said the advantage to the lands being owned by the OCLDC is the community can have more input into a purchase and sale agreement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can talk about things like height, density and setbacks,â&#x20AC;? he said. The approach to the St. Thomas school site would be very similar to one that was completed at 25 Esquimault Ave. in Qualicum-Graham Park. In that case, residents decided they would like to see an adult-living style development that would allow people who want to downsize to stay in the area. Harry Kingston, president of the Crystal Beach-Lakeview Community Association, said the meeting at Maki House was the very early stages of planning for the site on Leeming Drive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want a scenario where the community gets approached after everything is a done deal,â&#x20AC;? Kingston said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So residents need to provide input as to what we would like to see there.â&#x20AC;? There is one hectare on the site available for possible development

and city staff presented plans for residential zoning with a mix of singlefamily and semi-detached homes. The lot could service as many as 32 homes, but there were also drawings of developments with 28 and 12 units respectively. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are going to set an envelope and present that to developers interested in the property,â&#x20AC;? Taylor said. The property is currently zoned institutional; any zoning change would have to be approved by council. Whatever the change, many residents said they want to see the city deal with the lack of available parking in the area before any development takes place. Kingston showed photos of Leeming Drive a few weeks ago while an event was happening at Maki House. Cars were parked on both sides of the street, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s with the school parking lot still available. He said it would likely get worse without the spillover parking spots next to the community building. Grant Millar, who heads the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parks and recreation committee, said instead of five per cent cash-in-lieu of parkland, the residents should ask for five per cent of the land. Taylor said that decision would ultimately be up to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parks and recreation department which will decide if the community has sufficient green space. Taylor did pledge to use the cashin-lieu on improvements to Maki Park if thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what residents decided. City planner William Wood will be taking the residents comments about the property. He can be reached by email at William.Wood@ottawa.ca. Kingston said he expects there to be several more meetings about plans for property.

Radio Frequency identification funds speed up library expansion Emerald Plaza to nearly double in size Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

EMC news - The Ottawa Public Library Board has given a green light to a construction contract that would see the Emerald Plaza branch nearly double in size. The board approved the $500,000 contract with FiA Group on April 23. Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith

Egli said the library is well used because that area of the ward’s densely populated so an expansion has been on the books for nearly a decade. The library was slated to get funding for renovations under a program that will retrofit all of the city’s libraries for radio frequency identification. The radio tags keep track of books and reduce theft. Because of the new technology, which will allow the books to be

scanned and sorted more efficiently, the expansion shouldn’t require any new staff, Egli said. The total area will grow from 1,720 square metres to 3,205 – encompassing a vacant, space adjacent to the existing library. In order to minimize service interruption for customers, the branch will remain open throughout the majority of the construction process. However, the branch will require branch closures during the project, including six days in May, about six days in July and roughly 10 days in

August. Egli said the library hasn’t had any renovations since its construction in 1988. He added that per capita it’s one of the busiest libraries in the city. Library board chair Jan Harder said in a press release that Emerald Plaza is one of the city’s top eight

facility renewal priorities. “It’s about time. There are kids from Fisher Heights who use it to do their homework after school and lots of community groups that meet there,” Egli said. The one thing that stands out is how much the residents value that library.”

BELL MOBILITÉ PROPOSE UNE TOUR DE TÉLÉCOMMUNICATIONS OBJET:

Bell Mobility is proposing an antenna system at 2972 Donnelly Drive, Kemptville, Ontario, which consists of the following: the construction of a grey guyed telecommunications tower with antennas and standard 621 marking and lighting- red and white lights. A small equipment shelter will be built at the base of the tower. Once completed the antenna system will measure 90 metres in height.

Bell Mobilité propose d'installer un système d'antennes qui se trouve au 2972 Donnelly Drive, Kemptville, Ontario, comme suit : construction d'une tour haubanée grise avec antennes et système d'éclairage standard 621-lumières rouges et blanches. Un petit abri d'équipement sera installé à la base de la tour. Une fois les travaux terminés, le système d'antennes mesurera 90 mètres de hauteur.

The tower will provide wireless high quality telephony services and high speed internet in your community.

La tour offrira des services de téléphonie sans fil et d’internet haute vitesse sans-fil dans la communauté.

Industry Canada is responsible for the approval of this antenna system, and requires Bell Mobility to review this proposal with the public and local municipality. After reviewing this proposal, the City of Ottawa will provide its position to Industry Canada and Bell Mobility.

Industrie Canada, qui est responsable d'approuver ce système d'antennes, exige que Bell Mobilité passe en revue la présente proposition avec le public et la municipalité locale. Après avoir examiné cette proposition, la Ville d'Ottawa fera part de sa position à Industrie Canada et à Bell Mobilité.

Bell Mobility invite(s) you, by June 13, 2013, to provide by e-mail or letter your comments, and/or to be informed of the City's position on the proposed antenna system.

Bell Mobilité vous invite / invitent, à faire part de vos commentaires avant le 13 juin 2013, par courriel ou courrier postal ou à demander de connaître la position de la Ville quant à la proposition du système d'antennes.

Put Your Best Foot Forward:

Plan, Walk, Play, Enjoy May is Physical Activity Month and there is no better time to lace up your sneakers and put your best foot forward. Ottawa Public Health is sharing some tips to get residents moving!

PLAN Whether you walk for leisure to get reacquainted with your neighbours or as a useful way to get from point A to point B, there’s an “App” for that. Think about ways you can plan your trips and activities. Take advantage of new technology and Plan! Use websites such as Map my walk to map your own routes or visit National Capital Commission and Gatineau Park trails network websites for information on trails, maps, and route distances throughout Ottawa-Gatineau. OC Transpo has smartphone Apps that can help plan your trip. Or maybe you want to bike but the distance is too far? Find out what buses have a Rack and Roll.

WALK Walking is a low cost activity that can be done by almost anyone, anywhere. It is the ideal mode of transport for trips of 2km or less. Take advantage of the beautiful spring weather and

walk to work or school, to the store or simply to get a coffee. Walk with a friend during lunch or take the bus to work and build walking into your everyday activities. Getting off a stop earlier will add extra minutes of physical activity to your day. When heading to the mall, grocery store or work, park at the far end of the parking lot - will also help avoid parking lot car door dings! Change your walking routes, borrow a pedometer from the library or rediscover Ottawa by taking walking tours – it will keep things interesting and fun.

PLAY Children need a variety of physical activities throughout their day! Ensure your child takes part in active and structured play. Active play is childled, fun and energetic while structured play is adult-led, teaching movement skills like running, jumping, climbing and balancing. Children learn these skills by playing games, participating in sports and activities such as dance. Visit the ‘Active for Life’ or ‘Bring Back Play’ websites for ideas and games to make play and physical activity fun for you and your family.

ENJOY: You need to enjoy what you do to stay active. Plan a date with friends and head to a local city pool for a swim, sign up to a run or a cycling race or head to a dog park for human-dog social time. Whatever it is that brings you joy, put your best foot forward. Get off the couch or out of your office chair and start enjoying a more active lifestyle – it’s easier than you think! For more tips and ideas follow Ottawa Public Health on Twitter @OttawaHealth, Facebook, Pinterest or visit our blog at OttawaPublicHealth. ca For questions or more information call or email the Ottawa Public Health information line at 613-580-6744 healthsante@ottawa.ca.

Walking is good for your health, enjoy and be aware! Written by Joanne Veldman, Public Health Nurse Ottawa Public Health

Be aware of your surroundings • Seeing and hearing is key – be aware that cellphones and earbuds can lower your awareness • Make eye contact with drivers and cyclists before you step off the curb, make sure they stop for you • If no sidewalk is available, walk facing traffic • Notice uneven surfaces to avoid falls

Be Seen • Wear bright coloured and reflective clothing especially on rainy days and during dark hours • Choose the safest route, even if you have to walk a little further • Plan your route and cross at intersections or marked crossings • Be predictable and follow the rules of the road

Be a role model • Children need adult supervision to cross streets until they develop an ability to judge speed, depth and distance of cars. This usually occurs with teaching, around 10-11 years of age

• Let children see your commitment to following the rules of the road Enjoy your walk and invite someone to join you! Remember your comfortable walking shoes, sunscreen and water.

Time for a real transit plan

I

s a comprehensive transit plan too much for residents on both sides of the Ottawa River to ask for? Over the past few weeks, it has become clear that we don’t have a cohesive plan to direct the expansion of public transit services in the capital region. The National Capital Commission and the City of Ottawa are at odds on a pair of issues, namely a regional transit plan commissioned by those two organizations and the city of Gatineau and the preferred route for the western branch this city’s light rail system. For better or worse, Ottawa and Gatineau sit on opposite banks of what has long been Canada’s great divide. Despite those linguistic, cultural and political differences, people cross that divide on a regular basis to work, play or otherwise live their lives. This means leaders of both cities and the NCC, representing the federal government, need to consider how transit will evolve not only in Ottawa or Gatineau, but across the whole region. For example, the city’s transit commission rejected the findings of a regional plan because it didn’t align with goals for transit in Ottawa. Was

this because it sought to envision something bigger than just the needs of this city? Did it dare to think of the capital as something more than just those living on the south side of the river? But then during discussions surrounding the western route of the LRT, maintaining the Prince of Wales Bridge as a potential interprovincial transit crossing was referenced as reason to reject using Carling Avenue for light rail. So then is regional transit planning important after all? These questions make one wonder if the western LRT considerations are being made in isolation, or if they truly are part of a larger plan. If they are part of such a plan, what is it? Does the NCC know what those plans are? Does Gatineau? As veterans of the eastern interprovincial bridge saga can surely attest, decision making across the provincial divide is anything but easy, but are necessary in order to make effective decisions about how to spend billions of dollars and that affect more than a million people. Let’s not make decisions in isolation. Let’s keep lines of communication open. It may not be easy, but it’s the only way the cities of Ottawa and Gatineau and the NCC can deliver the kind of public transit the capital region deserves.

We’re not exactly digging a tunnel of love

T

here is no progress without heartbreak. Or, as they used to say on the left, you can’t make an omelet without breaking eggs. In this respect, it’s intriguing to see how many different perspectives there can be on one project. A guy was complaining on the radio the other day, a guy who probably doesn’t live too far from me, about the west end LRT route that has been proposed by city planners. The route goes beside the parkway, then up to the Richmond-Byron corridor, where it tunnels underground and emerges somewhere around Lincoln Fields. This was going to be awful, the guy said, in effect. Get ready for the lawsuits. I didn’t catch exactly where the guy lives, but I can feel his pain. I live a few blocks from where some of the work will being done and my feelings, while less intense, are certainly mixed. Which is the way it goes with projects of this magnitude. On the one hand, looking at the big picture: I’m glad that there is going to be more light rail. The city needs it. How many of us have just about stopped going downtown because parking and traffic are so difficult? I can see a day when I can walk a few blocks

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town and hop on the train downtown. It’s hard not to like that. On the other hand, this thing isn’t going to be complete for 10 years. How many of those years will feature noisy digging and blasting, dust and smoke, closing off of streets and general inconvenience? From where I sit, it could mean having to take a slightly different route home; from where somebody else sits – perhaps the guy on the radio – it could mean years of real discomfort. It’s very nice that the proposed plan will save the Richmond-Byron Linear Park by tunneling under it, but first that tunnel has to be made. If you’re sitting right next to it, it may be a bit harder to appreciate the joys of expanded public transit. Similarly, if you’re on the north side of Published weekly by:

Richmond Road and accustomed to a nice view across the parkway to the river, it may not please you to know that trains will be coming along. And if you’re used to walking or biking along one of the paths beside the parkway, you may not be pleased at the thought it might disappear and be replaced by tracks. To dismiss such concerns at NIMBYism is unfair. NIMBYism is when you object to a proposed group home on your street – or someone else’s street. Being concerned about a tunnel being dug in front of your home is something else, as is being concerned about a 19-story condo going up beside you. Of course that’s one of the other perspectives on this particular transit project. Proximity to light rail makes an area attractive to developers, as if Richmond Road wasn’t attractive enough already. So with the light rail come more 19-story towers. The character of the neighbourhood changes – for the better, say the planners, maybe not, say the neighbours. Still, it could have been worse, couldn’t it? The whole linear park could have been torn up. The parkway could have been given over to light rail, making the National Capital Commission sad.

Managing change is not easy for anyone. Imagine what it must have been like to live near the Queensway as it was being built in the late ’50s and early ’60s. That would have been serious noise. Then, just for fun, imagine what would have happened had opponents of the project won the day. Let’s see. No quick way into town from the suburbs. People who worked downtown would have to live downtown. Rapid transit would be a low priority. And no one would be arguing today about a tunnel along Byron. Sorry if that ruined your day.

Being present is the greatest gift

THIS WEEK’S POLL QUESTION:

T

he other day, my boys got off the school bus. It was one of those days where the driver had enforced silence for the entire 20-minute trip, so they were quite chatty – talking over each other, mixing French and English. It was making my head spin. I was trying to respond to a text message from a friend. Later that evening, after we’d done homework, had supper and taken showers, I was waiting for them to go to bed. I thought I’d check my email and Facebook accounts. While I was sitting in my office, my eldest came in to tell me about a presentation they’d had at the school – something about electricity and a pickle. I nodded and laughed distractedly when he laughed and furrowed my eyebrows to match his expression. The next morning he asked me about the pickle. I was confused. “I told you about it last night,” he said. “Oh yeah,” I said. “What was that about again?” He told me the story again. This time I got a bit more, but I was making school lunches. Wrapping deli meats can be rather focus-intensive for me. So once again I missed the point of the story. I came away with “guest presentation, funny, pickle, good thing it wasn’t a human, right?” The sad reality is most adults these days go about their days in a state of half-presence. I would wager mothers, in particular (sorry, fellow mothers), are so busy much of the time that we’re actually missing the moments we’ve vowed to appreciate. In fairness, we have limited hours in the day to socialize with kids, while also trying to feed them, discipline them and run them from one activity to another. (To parents of pre-school kids, you’ll be more – not less – busy as the children age, believe it or not). But perhaps the biggest culprit is technology. I do like to text, use Facebook and send emails when it’s more convenient than making a phone call. Unfortunately this makes it increasingly difficult to communicate with those within my physical space. So I’ve decided to be more present. It’s not easy. But here’s what I’m trying: when the kids get off the school bus, even if I’m

Web Poll

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse mid-text, I just hit send and pocket the phone. (This has caused confusion among friends and colleagues). When we get inside, I get discipline out of the way first by ordering them to do three things: wash hands, put away lunchboxes, and “be loving and helpful.” The latter saves me time later because I go on to repeat, “are we being loving right now?” over and over again to break up fights, encourage the children to set the table, etc. (You know, the kind of stuff that will land them in the psychologist’s chair when they’re adults). I sit and talk with them while they have a snack. I ask them about their days. They ask about mine. I give them encouragement with homework (rather than defensively yelling at them continuously to “sit down and do it,” while I’m trying to send a work-related text). We’ve started reading together again in the evenings – which, believe it or not, seems to be the best time of day to fit in a really great conversation, while teaching them about morals based on the literature. It may sound all supermom of me, but I’m not doing all of this perfectly well. But even on the days where paid work takes over and I have limited moments with the kids – actually, especially on those days – I’ve realized that being in the moment is ever more important. This was brought to focus when my eight-year-old said, “Mom, I like how you don’t yell much these days.” It’s amazing what we can accomplish when we’re proactive and present rather than reactive and distracted.

Do you think a tunnel beneath Richmond Road is the best route for the western branch of the LRT?

A) Yes. It is the optimum route and the underground track will cause the least disruption to the community. B) No. Carling Avenue presents a much better option for light rail. C) No. The city needs to make a deal with the NCC so the tracks can go down the river parkway. D) I don’t even take transit, so I could care less where it runs. PREVIOUS POLL SUMMARY:

Will the recent explosions at the Boston Marathon result in lower attendance by fans and runners at the Ottawa Race Weekend?

A) Yes. There’s a chance it could happen here and some will be worried about security.

B) Maybe. Even though a bombing is unlikely, some people might be afraid to show up.

33%

C) No. Acts of terror only serve to galvanize the public to not allow it to affect their behaviour.

Saving Byron Linear Park not enough – move rail south, residents tell city Laura Mueller

SUPPORT FOR VETERANS INITIATIVE

laura.mueller@metroland.com

It was my honour to bring together key players in the City’s social, housing and support services this past week to ensure that they have the tools they need to assist Canadian veterans who may arrive on their doorsteps. At a special meeting held at Ottawa City Hall, I was able to introduce these important service organizations to the services offered by Veterans Affairs Canada and the Royal Canadian Legion. This was a result of the initiative that I had started last year through a motion to Council, directing staff to look for ways to improve our services to veterans through our own networks. My goal is to ensure that homeless or veterans in need are connected with services available to them by building a more integrated support network among the various agencies. By increasing the effectiveness of current support programs and identification processes, fewer veterans would fall through the cracks and be overlooked. I would like to thank Georges Lariviere, Veterans Affairs Canada; David Gordon, Royal Canadian Legion, Ontario Command; Robyn Zettler, Royal Canadian Legion, Ontario Command; and retired Captain Mark Eldridge for taking the time to share their programs and experiences with those in attendance. If you would like to learn more about this initiative or get involved, please contact my office. RIDEAU HERITAGE ROUTE RECOGNIZED BY OTTAWA TOURISM The Rideau Heritage Route (RHR) partnership between the City of Ottawa and the Rideau Heritage Route Tourism Association was recognized by Ottawa Tourism at the recent Ottawa Tourism Awards, held at the Brookstreet Hotel on April 25th. The acknowledgment provided by Ottawa Tourism presented further proof that this is a viable and economically beneficial venture between the Association and the City of Ottawa. The RHR completion was a collaboration between the City of Ottawa and the Rideau Heritage Route Tourism Association last summer to extend the existing signed route along the Rideau River into the heart of Ottawa, thereby encouraging new opportunities for economic growth and expanded tourism opportunities in South Ottawa. This initiative is expected to boost economic development in South Ottawa by increasing the opportunity to benefit from the more than 8 million tourists who visit the City each year. BARRHAVEN YOUTH SHINES AT CITY COUNCIL I would like to congratulate Keeley Baizana, daughter of John and Alison Baizana of Barrhaven, for doing such a fantastic job singing the National Anthem at the City Council meeting on Wednesday, April 24th. Your performance was amazing and everyone was very proud of you. Thank you again for missing school to sing for us. EARTH DAY TREE GIVEAWAY On Monday, April 22nd, Mayor Jim Watson, Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation Chair Jason Kelly, and I joined with Capital Junk volunteers to help celebrate their 1000 Tree Giveaway at City Hall. Capital Junk has partnered with the RVCF to become the First Carbon Neutral Fleet in Ottawa and together, as part of this celebration will be planting 400 seedlings in the capital region. For the donation of $1.00, residents were able to have a tree planted in their honour as part of this initiative. I would like to congratulate the Capital Junk team for their achievements and encourage other companies to take the environment into consideration as well. These new trees will absorb greenhouse gas, produce life-giving oxygen, clean our water supplies, provide wildlife habitat, buffer noise and wind, improve the soil and reduce soil erosion.

EMC news - Carling Avenue boosters came out in force at a city meeting to discuss routes to take light rail west from Tunney’s Pasture to Baseline Station. But running rapid rail transit down Carling Avenue is off the table, said transportation committee chairman Keith Egli. That comment was met with shouts of derision and participants saw exiting the city-hall meeting. The meeting stretched late into the evening as speakers who stood up from among a crowd of around 300 people took turns deriding the process that led to them being blindsided by the city concluding it prefers one of the 15 routes it originally began studying. The chosen route – coined the Richmond Underground – would skirt along the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway before reaching a new, above-ground station at Cleary Avenue and then dipping underground. The line, which wouldn’t be built for another decade, would continue under Richmond Road until just before Lincoln Fields, where the Sir. John A. Macdonald Parkway and existing Transitway meet Richmond Road. The route was chosen as an “elegant solution” to address concerns raised by the community and National Capital Commission last year, including a desire to preserve the Byron Linear Park and access to green space along the parkway. City staff struggled to explain the concept of putting a secondary transit line on Carling in the future – something like a tram that would be slower and have more

frequent stops. The route to the north would be a rapid line mainly serving commuters, although it would provide two new local stations: one at Cleary and another at New Orchard. Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs, whose ward includes a portion of the line, said she doesn’t support a route that runs down Carling. “I don’t want to do that to you,” she said, adding that cutting off communities in her ward from the benefits of a light-rail line would be detrimental.

the overall (transit) network,” said Nancy Schepers, the deputy city manager in charge of overseeing transportation matters, adding “(it) is not a good transit solution for the future of the city.” It would mean that buses would still have to run on the parkway to serve the communities to the north, it would eliminate the option of extending light rail over the Prince of Wales Bridge and it would force riders to have more transfers by cutting off the OTrain at Carling, Schepers said. “Carling is off the table,” said transportation committee chairman Keith Egli. Residents at the meeting weren’t having it. “Does it not make sense to have the train going through the centre of gravity of the city?” said one man. “No one lives in the river.” Others said it doesn’t make sense to ignore people to the south. One man who said he lived on Carling said he would love to have the rapid transit line run there. NCC VS. CITY

Shortly after a technical briefing on April 22 to update councillors and the media on the preferred route, National Capital Commission chairman Russell Mills sent out a media release stating the commission is still opposed to any route that runs rail on the parkway. The Richmond Underground as proposed would “kiss” the parkway, Schepers said. Putting that portion underground at Rochester Field would obviously increase the cost. What followed became a back-and-forth between Mills and Mayor Jim Watson. Mills indicated the NCC’s board was caught off guard by the city’s assertion that one option has been chosen as the preferred route, while Watson maintained he had made it clear during a meeting with the NCC two weeks ago.

Students’ association fights age cap on student bus fares 10,000-person petition filed with the city clerk Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

EMC news - Algonquin College students are calling for a stop to what they call unfair bus fare hikes. The college’s students association filed a petition with more than 10,000 signatures with the city clerk on April 15, asking for council to reconsider a decision to cap the age of student bus passes at 19. An age restriction was placed on student bus passes during changes to the whole rate package as part of the intended introduction of Presto payment cards. Right now students over the age of 19 will have to purchase an adult pass, which David Corson, the president of the Algonquin College Students’ Association, said costs him $40 more per month. The students association has waged a nearly eight-month battle with the city in an attempt to get rid of the age cap. College Coun. Rick Chiarelli, who has been acting as a liaison between the association and council, said a lot of his colleagues were hesitant to get rid of the age cap when it was introduced because it was part of a larger fare rate package. “A lot of council like the package as a whole and were worried that undoing the age cap would reset the whole package,” Chiarelli said. “But I don’t think we’d have to reset the whole package. I am confident we can reverse the age cap.”

Chiarelli said the student bus pass was aimed at helping the condition of being a student. “If you’re 35 and you quit your full-time job to be a student you face the same financial challenges as someone who is 19,” Chiarelli said. Corson, who is nearly 50, agrees. “A lot of people have said it’s the difference of a case of beer,” he said. “That’s really insulting. My budget is pretty tight; I haven’t had a case of beer in quite a while.”

In October, Corson said the students association was considering a human rights challenge with the province. While he agreed the age cap does discriminate against students, he said he hoped to deal with the issue by talking with council and the city’s transit commission. The students were set to meet with the transit commission on April 18. Chiarelli said the petition is the largest in the city’s history.

When the city implemented the rate package for the new Presto cards, council put a cap on the age of people received the discounted student rate. Algonquin College Student Association president David Corson said the college doesn’t think this practice is fair.

EMC news - A motion presented by the NDP could have Ottawa and all Ontario residents seeing a 15 per cent slash in their auto insurance premiums. The provincial New Democrats pushed for the motion after watching premiums go up and payouts go down. Since 2010, the provincial government has agreed to increase premiums by five per cent and cut benefits by more than 50 per cent, saving the insurance companies about $2 billion annually. Previously the typical payout a moderately injured customer would receive hovered around $100,000, but the cap has lowered that amount to $50,000 with the average receiving much less. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The vast majority of people are now being told they can only get up to $3,500 in coverage which makes our coverage amongst the lowest in all of Canada,â&#x20AC;? said Bramalea-GoreMalton MPP Jagmeet Singh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Insurance companies have enjoyed, and this is not an exaggeration, one of the most historically significant reductions in their costs in Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history. Period,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So we are paying more money for an inferior product.â&#x20AC;? Over the years, the insurance companies have seen an overall cost reduction of 35 per cent. A legislated reduction of premiums of 15 per cent seemed fair for both customers and the industry, said the MPP. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want results that are achievable, that are reasonable and that will help people out,â&#x20AC;? said Singh.

NDP press to lower car insurance premium Patricia Leboeuf

NEWS

Insurance brokers do not believe a legislated premium reduction is the way to go, neither do the Progressive Conservatives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The motion to reduce premiums by 15 per cent period is a noble thought, but however it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t address the problem about why the premiums are high,â&#x20AC;? said Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP Jack MacLaren.

Various stakeholders have identified that preventing fraud is an integral piece to cutting down premiums for all. Fraud costs the industry between $750 million and $1.5 billion annually. Insurance companies are also wrapped in yards of red tape. They must apply to a regulatory body to change a premium rate whether to increase or decrease it. The process is slow and cumbersome and can take up to six months to get a reply, said MacLaren. Appealing a claim is also a tedious process, with customers often waiting up to a year for a response. Imposing a mandatory slash in premiums could do more harm than good by eliminating competition and the root causes of the problem would still be there, said MacLaren. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to do the tough work of getting rid of the fraud, getting rid of the red tape and providing a truly competitive environment for private companies,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The marketplace will reward us with lower premiums.â&#x20AC;? The NDP has countered that the party supports reducing fraud but that reductions in 2010 have already cut the number of cases and cost significantly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be contingent on further fraud reduction measures,â&#x20AC;? said Singh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a red herring, a politic of distraction. I think we should see those changes now. We are more than happy to implement more fraud reduction policies down the road but those should be tied in to more reductions.â&#x20AC;? The Liberal government has agreed to add the motion to the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yearly budget, but it was a hard sell. Petitions were signed, city halls were visited and a grassroots movement was built and finally was accepted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All those things together, I think worked in finally putting pressure,â&#x20AC;? he added. The provincial budget is planned to be approved at the end of April, but customers could start feeling the effects within a year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People will start feeling it during their renewal,â&#x20AC;? said Singh.

Hospice looking for hikers Annual hike aims to raise $120,000 Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Hikers are preparing to descend on Old Ottawa South this weekend to help a local palliative care facility continue providing support for patients and their families from across the city. The Tracey Arnett Realty Hike for Hospice is one of the Hospice at May Courtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest fundraisers and this year organizers aim to raise $120,000 for the facility, funds which will go directly to patient care. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hospice palliative care is such an important need in our community and we need to fundraise over one third of our dollars in order to provide these key services,â&#x20AC;? said Lisa Sullivan, executive director for Ottawa Hospice Services.

$180,000. The May Court hike will start at the hospice, located at 114 Cameron Ave. Participants will then walk along the streets of Old Ottawa South. On the morning of the hike, there will be coffee, tea and Timbits from Tim Hortons. Mayor Jim Watson, will make

opening remarks before the hike and awards for the top fundraisers will be presented alongside a lunch provided by the Red Apron. A number of activities for hikers of every age will take place after the hike as well. The hike will begin at 9 a.m. Registration is $25, which includes a commemorative shirt, the food and entertainment. Resident and hospice supporter Chris Warburton participated in the hike in the past and said it is a great way to bring the local community together to support a great cause. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We look forward to seeing everyone and are truly thankful for all the support we receive,â&#x20AC;? Warburton said. People are encouraged to gather pledges to both raise awareness and funds for hospice palliative care. For more information please visit hospicemaycourt.com.

Students earn global education Meadowlands PS raised $5,000 for clean water in Kenya Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

The students, who are part of the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Me to We club, chose the village in Kenya three years ago, pledging to raise the $5,000 needed for the filtration system. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was really great because some of the older kids in the club knew they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be here when the goal was reached, but they still wanted to help out,â&#x20AC;? said Bob Richardson, a teacher at Meadowlands. The student did a series of penny drives, used toys sales and bake sales in an effort to raise the money. The latest bake sale raised $1,147 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; lots more than the $800 needed to get to the $5,000 total. Richardson said the unused

Teacher Ann-Marie Babineau said the group also hosted an all-day event for Grade 8 girls called Treasure Yourself, promoting positive self-esteem. It included six workshops all related to different issues such as bullying and women in media. The project was set up by four girls in Grade 12 for the Grade 8 students to help with

EMC news - One in four Ottawa employees at the Department of National Defence reside in Orléans, according to numbers provided by the federal ministry. Metroland Media obtained the data from the DND and Ottawa-Orléans MPP Phil McNeely. McNeely had filed an access to information request for data on how many Orléans employees — civilians, and members of the Canadian Forces and reserves — could be affected by a plan to relocate DND staff to the Nortel campus on Carling Avenue. The MPP has logged a complaint with the federal commissioner of official languages. He said that under Official Languages Act, the federal government is bound to protect Orléans because the community is composed of a unique, linguistic minority. It is expected to relocate approximately

10,000 employees, more than half of the workforce. But it isn’t clear exactly how many employees will be moved to the Nortel campus, as details of the move are still being worked out, but the large space is expected to consolidate offices and become a central headquarters for DND. Of the total 17,800 employees working for DND in the region, 26 per cent are from Orléans. Thirty per cent of civilian DND staff – the largest section of the department – live in Orléans. In comparison, 23 per cent of Canadian Forces members and 20 per cent of the Canadian Forces Reserve members live in the area. McNeely’s office figured out how many staff were from Orléans by requesting the total number of staff from all the postal codes that make up the Orléans area. The total number of employees provided by the DND are current as of last week.

Councillor, community surprised by community benefit slash Payment reduced by 70 per cent due to path community group doesn’t want Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Residents of the Glebe Annex are fuming after discovering city planners gave a developer a 70 per cent break on community benefit payments in exchange for building a pathway they don’t want. The Glebe Annex Community Association has been pushing for the city to show the math used to calculate a $204,581 payment from a developer, Taggart Homes, in exchange for the city rezoning its property at 265 Carling Ave. to allow an 18-storey residential tower on a site that was zoned for nine and four storeys. Glebe Annex Community Association president Sylvia Milne called the reduction “an injustice.” “(It is ) one more incident of city hall looking after the developer to the detriment of the residents,” she wrote in an email. After weeks of emails, the community group was told that the total calculation based on the density uplift was $681,937, but city planners agreed to drop that by 70 per cent.

SUBMITTED/TAGGART HOMES

Capital Ward Coun. David Chernushenko and the Glebe Annex Community Association were disappointed to learn city planners had approved a 70 per cent cut to the community benefit a developer will pay in exchange for more dense zoning for a controversial condo building at 265 Carling Ave. While he supports public amenities and pathway links, Capital Coun. David Chernushenko was caught off guard by news of the community benefit payment reduction. “When you’re providing a community benefit there is an expectation that the community will benefit from it and

be consulted,” he said. The city’s recently adopted policy on Section 37 – the part of the provincial Planning Act that lets municipalities collect money to be used for community amenities from developers who want to construct taller or denser buildings. Those amenities can be anything from streetscape improve-

ments to a contribution to a fund for affordable housing, but the projects must have a direct benefit for residents in the immediate area. The type of benefit is to be decided by the ward councillor in consultation with the affected community or communities. There are reasons the developer’s payment could be

reduced, including providing publicly accessible space such as pathways through the property. But dropping the fee by more than 70 per cent is steep, Milne said, especially for something the community sees as a bad idea. John Smit, the city’s manager of development review for the urban area, said the reduction in community benefits fees is not based on a formula. A city planner negotiating the calculation of a Section 37 benefit isn’t required to inform or consult the community or the ward councillor on reductions to the uplift value. “It’s really a negotiation between the developer and the (planning) department,” he said. Through the councillor’s office, the community can provide suggestions of benefits it would like to see, Smit said. But if the developer proposes something different, the city planner on the file can judge whether it would qualify and by how much it would reduce the community benefit payment listed on the planning report. “It’s not a back-and-forth,” Smit said. A review of how the first year of using Section 37 went

in Ottawa is on the planning department’s work plan for the year. “We knew from the get-go there would be things identified through the course (of implementing Section 37) that will have to be looked at,” Smit said. The pathway was always part of the plans Taggart showed the community, but it wasn’t discussed as something that would impact the community benefit payment, Milne said. Ultimately, the community association would prefer to see the rezoning reversed to limit the building to nine storeys. But more realistically, Milne would like to see the pathway canceled and the full Section 37 payment re-instated. “If it’s unsafe and undesirable, why do it?” Milne asked. The Glebe Annex Community Association has urged Taggart to reconsider the pathway all along. The developer says the path would provide access from Clemow Avenue to bus stops on Carling Avenue. But Milne worried that the secluded pathway might be unsafe and could end up being a spot that attracts trash.

Re-instate rural Para Transpo: riders Changes to community-based transportation isolating disabled people, they say Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Changes to accessible transit service in rural areas made a year ago arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t working, say riders who pleaded for the transit commission to reinstate Para Transpo service. Instead of running Para Transpo vans to transport disabled people within rural areas, OC Transpo decided to provide funding to community service organizations that provide rides. While it may have sounded like a good idea at the time, the change has left people stranded and isolated, said Adele Muldoon, a West Carleton resident who spoke to the transit commission on April 17 on behalf of the Council on Aging. Some of the community-based services only run during business hours during the week and none of them are equipped to transport people who are conďŹ ned to wheelchairs or scooters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every Ottawa citizen should have the opportunity to participate in community life,â&#x20AC;? Muldoon said. Commissioning taxis to pick up the slack is not a viable solution,

since the companies usually refuse to send cabs to far-ďŹ&#x201A;ung rural areas, Muldoon said. The city considers the changes to be a success. In the past year, community service agencies have been able to provide an additional 4,557 trips at an operating cost of $51 per trip â&#x20AC;&#x201C; much lower than the cost of running a Para van, which is $77 per trip. Through the service agencies, clients are also able to travel beyond city limits and book their trips up to two weeks in advance, whereas Para Transpo bookings must be made on the same day the person wants to travel. Brenda Brake uses a wheelchair and has been a Para Transpo rider for eight years. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s from Manotick and the village is home to her friends, family and her doctor, but Brake hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been able to make it to a doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appointment for the past year because she now lives in Barrhaven â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the urban area. That is due to a separate but related issue â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Para service is overloaded and the process of booking a ride is harried and inconsistent, she said. But even if she does manage to get to Manotick, she would have to take Para Transpo back to Bar-

rhaven in order to get a ride to the home of a friend or family member in Manotick. Instead, Brake has taken to meeting her daughter for lunch at a restaurant in Barrhaven. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The question is why they changed anything in the ďŹ rst place,â&#x20AC;? Brake said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make sense.â&#x20AC;? Some of the transit commissioners sympathized. While the commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chairwoman, GloucesterSouthgate Coun. Diane Deans, left the room to speak to the media with OC Transpo general manager John Manconi, Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson was directing staff to look at consulting disabled transit users in the rural area about their needs. Public consultations on Para Transpo are already slated for this summer, she said, so staff should use that opportunity to get a full picture of the challenges disabled transit users face, especially in the rural areas. The issue affects just under 100 people who need accessible transit service in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rural areas, Wilkinson said. She wants staff to review their speciďŹ c needs and suggestions that could improve their

access to transit. Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder said maybe the city needs to think outside the box when it comes to Para Transpo, especially in rural areas. Ottawa has invested a lot of money

Every Ottawa citizen should have the opportunity to participate in community life ADELE MULDOON

into making the city accessible, whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s curb cuts in sidewalks or low-ďŹ&#x201A;oor buses, Harder said. The city should focus its efforts on encouraging and helping people with accessibility challenges take advantage of those investments, Harder said. Encourging riders to book shorter trips on Para Transpo is one way, Harder said. Perhaps Para could serve more people if riders could book a trip from their door to an accessible transit station and take con-

ventional transit for the bulk of their trips, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Certainly an interesting approach but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very big question,â&#x20AC;? said Pat Scrimgeour, manager of transit planning and reporting. Para Transpo has a mandate to provide door-to-door service, and while riders can request a shorter trip, they are not encouraged to do that, he added. There is a need for Ottawa to look at a large-scale rethink of how it wants to provide transit service for disabled people, said John Manconi, the general manager of OC Transpo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need a large-scale policy discussion with some difďŹ cult dialogue around eligibility and what rules you want to use,â&#x20AC;? Manconi said. It would involve signiďŹ cant ďŹ nancial considerations Manconi wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t prepared to address at the April 17 meeting.

Para users shut out of Presto Non-universal payment system disadvantages disabled people Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Presto payment cards will come into effect July 1 for OC Transpo – but not Para Transpo. Blocking riders who use both conventional transit and Para Transpo from using the Presto card unfairly disadvantages them, Para users told the transit commission on April 17. “To use a metaphor, we’re at the back of the bus,” said Kevin Kinsella, who uses a wheelchair and rides both Para and conventional transit. Kinsella said he would prefer to use Presto because it allows him to purchases passes and top up a cash balance at home, removing the need for him to navigate to an OC Transpo sales centre. The smart-card payment system approved by the commission on the same day will also be transferable, said another delegate, Catherine Gardner. That means her companion could use her pass when she is not using it, but since Gardner won’t be able to use the cards on Para Transpo, she won’t get those benefits other transit users will receive. OC Transpo general manager John Manconi said he is very sensitive to the situation. He couldn’t explain why past transit management didn’t make the decision to adopt a payment system that works on the entire OC Transpo system, including Para Transpo.

While he would prefer to see a Presto-based solution, Manconi said, that is “not an identified priority” for Metrolinx, the provincial agency that manages the Presto system. “We have told them that we are not waiting any further,” Manconi said. “We can either wait, or move on; we’ve moved on and we want to find a solution for them.” The main challenge revolves around the community pass. It is a discounted pass that many Para Transpo users buy and it means they only have to top up their fare to use the Para vans, which cost more. Community passes can also be used on conventional buses and the O-Train. Gardner asked why OC Transpo wouldn’t allow her to show her Presto card to a Para Transpo operator, along the receipt showing she purchased a valid community pass on the card. Troy Charter, manager of transit operations, said it would be too complex to communicate that change to 180 Para operators, riders and the taxi drivers who support Para rides as part of the service – around 90 different drivers a day. “It may seem simple, but we want to make sure we provide a consistant service,” Charter said. Pat Scrimgeour, the manager of transit service and reporting, said receipts don’t have the security features that assure drivers a pass or transfer is valid. But Manconi emphasized

the issue is not about a lack of trust of Para Transpo customers, but rather the confusion and complexity of mak-

ing changes to the payment system. OC Transpo is working on a standalone electronic fare payment system

for Para Transpo that would also be accepted on conventional OC Transpo vehicles.

Plans to update the Rideau Centre gets OKed by NCC Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - The National Capital Commission has given the green light to plans that will see an update to the facade of the Rideau Centre. Cadillac Fairview, owner of the downtown shopping centre, has proposed changes that will affect the facade on portions of Rideau Street, Colonel By Drive, Nicholas Street and McKenzie King Bridge. Christopher Hoyt, the senior architect overseeing the project, presented the recommendations to the NCC board at a recent meeting. The presentation included preliminary images of revamped Rideau Street and Mackenzie King entrances, an updated pedestrian bridge between the shopping centre and the Hudson’s Bay store on the opposite side of Rideau, and a new garage entrance on Nicholas Street. The commission does not own the land, but a restrictive covenant was part of the 1981 sale to then-owners of the property, the Viking Rideau Corporation. which states any alterations to the exterior or new structures built are subject to the approval of the NCC. The covenant affects the facade along

Rideau Street and Sussex Avenue, Colonel By Drive, portions of Nicholas Street, portions of Mackenzie King Bridge and the rooftop terrace near Mackenzie King Bridge. Hoyt said signage for the building was not approved and would need to be discussed at a later meeting. The proposed plans were well received by the NCC board and were unanimously approved. The board did consider whether the roof-top terrace needed to remain as a NCC-operated property. Fred Gaspere, director of federal approvals and environmental management for the NCC, said commission staff have recommended the mall owner take over responsibility for the terrace. “I can confirm that we would like to have a discussion with them about the entire project, including the rooftop terrace,” he said. Board member Jason Sordi expressed reservations about the current state of Rideau Street, concerned that if hoarding is placed along the street during construction, it could provide more places for people to hide or make the street more unsavory then it already is.

Grandmothers group hosts fundraising fashion show Proceeds to benefit the Stephen Lewis Foundation Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - A group of Kanata grandmothers will stitch fashion and philanthropy together on Wednesday, May 1. Kanata Grandmothers Together is hosting its sixth-annual fashion show and sale to benefit the Stephen Lewis Foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign. The organization raises funds and awareness for African grandmothers raising their orphaned grandchildren who have lost their parents to AIDS. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If (people) support these grandmothers in Africa, it will give them a good feeling,â&#x20AC;? said Margaret Conrad, a member of the group. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People who come out for this event are coming out for a purpose, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to help the grandmothers in Africa.â&#x20AC;? All the funds go directly to the people who need it most, added Conrad. The Stephen Lewis Foundation has workers on the ground to help the grandmothers and their grandchildren, as well as to ensure the money goes directly to those who need it most. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re so well taken care of as grandmothers that we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to worry about bringing up our grand-

children because our children died of AIDS,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get any assistance over there, to fund them, to bring up their grandchildren, to clothe them and feed them and send them to school. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important that we get the funds together to help the grandmothers.â&#x20AC;? ONE-OF-A-KIND

Aside from offering a helping hand, attendees will have the opportunity to see and purchase one-of-akind pieces by Judy Joannu Designs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She has her own personal touch,â&#x20AC;? said Conrad, who lives in Kanata Lakes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re so colourful this spring. There are a lot of prints and different designs â&#x20AC;Ś (and) very affordable too; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a nice thing about it.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the first time Joannu, an Ashton resident, will show her pieces with the Kanata grandmothers, and Conrad said the show wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t disappoint. There are styles available for every taste. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year her spring collection is designed from her time in London, England,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) fabulous.â&#x20AC;? The event is open to all ages. The event â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which takes place on

Children leading charge to promote urban life Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - A group of young, imaginative minds would like to welcome other youthful urbanites to go for a walk around Sandy Hill this weekend. Janeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Walk is set to take place all over the city on May 4 and 5, and in Sandy Hill a trio of eight-year-old tour guides will be leading the way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a chance to see the neighbourhood through the eyes of a child,â&#x20AC;? said Sandra MacPherson, a coordinator for Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Janeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Walk. This childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s walk will be the first of its kind for the Ottawa Janeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Walk. MacPherson said she came up with the idea to present a walk where anything goes, imagination is welcome and inquiring minds are encouraged. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This walk is about the simpler things that most of us just walk by and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To me all rocks kind of look the same, but kids see the detail, and they say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;No, this rock is different.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; ... It makes you realize that there is complexity in nature that is fascinating and to me that is what Janeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Walk is all about.â&#x20AC;? The annual event takes place in cities all over the world and is named after writer and urban activist Jane Jacobs. The walks typically are held on the first weekend of May to coincide with Jacobsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s birthday. The walks are led by volunteers and, like the walk that is taking

place in Sandy Hill, can focus on just about anything. The mother of one of the eightyear-old tour guides and a PhD student studying the impact of urban literature, MacPherson said she wanted to create a walk that included young children and promoted urban living. With that idea in mind, she approached her daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daycare, Bettye Hyde for support. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They (Bettye Hyde) have been amazing in making this come together,â&#x20AC;? she said. The daycare will be providing teachers for an art activity after the walk. In preparation, MacPherson said she took her young leaders out with a group of younger children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was fascinating to watch the walk,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The older kids were leading and the younger ones were so attentive. They would stop and look at something and the younger kids would ask a question and the older kids would give their opinions.â&#x20AC;? This scenario is what MacPherson hopes the May 5 walk will be about. It will lead children and their parents through Sandy Hill to Strathcona Park and along the Rideau River pathway. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really interesting about our walk is that we look at art on peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawn, the diversity of the lawns and urban landscape and then we will walk along the river and Strathcona Park,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we are special to have this urban nature mix. That is a huge part of our

Three eight year-old children will lead a walk through the neighbourhood for other children and their parents. walk.â&#x20AC;? Passionate about promoting urban living and landscapes, MacPherson said she loves events such as Janeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Walk because to her, these walks are all about getting people to love where they live. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These walks are about enjoying where you are living, and the kids are just one part of that overall enthusiasm,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The city doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be a demonized

place, that we only live here because we have to, but that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actually a wonderful place, where people can make a change and I think if the children can see nature in Strathcona Park to the homes in the neighbourhood, and how these homes express themselves, they would see that they can also make change happen in this city.â&#x20AC;? Children must be accompanied by an adult to participate in the chil-

drenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s walk. To kick off a weekend, organizers for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event have a Janeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Talk planned at TAN Coffee in Sandy Hill on May 2. The evening will focus on the neighbourhood of Vanier and the ongoing revitalization going on there. Multiple Vanier residents will be on hand to speak about the neighbourhoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rebirth. Museoparcâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Janik Aubin-Robert said each community representative will have a unique message, but the focus will be the same. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each organization will be given the chance to explain its role in the community and most importantly how it works together with others to achieve its goals,â&#x20AC;? Aubin-Robert said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want other communities to look at Vanier and say â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wow, what an amazing and diverse community.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Vanier is a changing community. We want to showcase these changes and make people aware of the wonderful innovative projects and initiative going on in this amazing community.â&#x20AC;? Sandy Hill is only one of the neighbourhoodsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; participating in this city-wide event.

Asperger’s, Autism kids speak out New letter addresses issues of bullying Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news – A group of boys diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome or autism have written a letter to the public asking people to be open minded and to try and understand what it is like to have a disability. “I am a 12-year-old boy who has to deal with social challenges every single day that most people do not have to worry about,” Twelve-yearold Nick Fejes wrote. “I often will get into fights but not really understand what started it in the first place and I also have a hard time perceiving other people’s side of the story. It is hard for me to process my emotions. I wish that most people in the general public, the average Canadian citizen, would view kids on the spectrum as actual people, rather than “something strange.” Nick is but one voice of the many, all saying the same thing, simply, they want to be heard and to be treated as normal. The group of boys attend a private school in the city’s west end called Mindware Academy, which offers children with learning disabilities, a different approach to learning.

The school runs a daytime and after-school social group which helps boys like Nick work on social interactions and feelings. It was during this group time that teacher Susan Mancini worked with the boys on expressing their feelings on paper. “Usually when they first come to the school they are withdrawn, mistrusting and scared,” Mancini said. “I noticed the kids needed to vent. To get their words out. At first I would transcribe what they were saying, after that, the boys began to write their own words down.” The group shared their thoughts with each other and then, tentatively, with the rest of the school. “They were nervous to share, but once they saw how well other students in the school responded, the group decided to stretch their reach a little farther. They thought what if we could get it out to the general public?” she said. The goal is to let the public know how people with a disability feels on a daily basis; what it feels like when they are teased, or mistreated. “We want the world to understand,” Callum Nightingale said. Some of the feelings in the letter are raw and incredibly open.

A social group at Mindware Academy from back left, Josh Wells, Jayden Findlay, Callum Nightingale, Nikita Sautchenko, and front left, Nick Fejes, Christian Devey and Cameron Nielson wrote a letter expressing what its like to live with a disability. The boys say they hope the letter will create awareness. Twelve-year-old Nikita Sautchenko, an avid gamer with Asperger’s syndrome, said he feels just an average kid, but students in his former public school treated him poorly on

a daily basis. “It got to the point where I was turning into a bully just to keep them away from me,” he said. Creating a hard shell on the sur-

face, Nikita admits he was battling depression and thoughts of suicide when he came home. See PURPOSE, page 33

Purpose of letters is to foster change Continued from page 32

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wish that the general public or people who are â&#x20AC;&#x153;normalâ&#x20AC;? would view people on the spectrum as regular people and not weirdos or outcasts,â&#x20AC;? Nikita wrote. Now the social group would like to share their message with as many people who care to listen. For them, the group describes this crusade as not only about teaching the world about treating them better, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about stopping bullying from happening to other children like them. Each one of the students who wrote the letter at one time attended public school, before transferring to Mindware. The bullying, according to the group, starts around Grade 3. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right around the time kids start to notice there is something different about you,â&#x20AC;? Nick said. It can start out small, either they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get picked for a team, or they get ignored in the schoolyard, but each one of the boys says that it escalates quickly to name calling, teasing and exclusion. The purpose of the letter is to foster change. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want other kids to have to go through what we did,â&#x20AC;? Jayden Findlay said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It needs to change. Everyone needs to change.â&#x20AC;? The boys come from different

parts of the city and each admit they would like the change to start in their own neighbourhoods, but would be happy if any school, parent or youth would listen to them. Callum said spreading the word today is important, because he wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always have his school to make him feel safe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Here everyone understands you, but eventually, you have to go out in the real world and it would be nice to know that people out there understand you,â&#x20AC;? Callum said. The next step for the group will be to spread their message to different school boards and groups who are willing to listen. Mancini said she will meet with different schools, presenting their letter and hopefully, the boys will have a chance to hold presentations on the issue.

LETTER FROM STUDENTS:

I am a 13-year-old kid who is diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum and I struggle everyday because there are lots of parts of my day where I feel stressed or mad. I try to start fresh with a new day but every day for some reason I feel hurt and cry often. A lot of people make fun of me because I am sensitive but deep down I am just a normal person. Many people have thought I am weird in the past or say that I am not smart but I just ask to be treated like a normal person. - Callum Nightingale

We want them to know that we are all human beings. So what if we have a disability? We may have challenges in life but we still want to be viewed as normal people. We still have the right to a good education, respect from those around us, to interact with others without exclusion, and we have the right to be treated as a valuable human being.

City to post ‘hit list’ of negligent property owners Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - If owners of derelict properties refuse to comply with the city’s orders to clean them up, they’ll be called out on the city’s website. Along with signs on the properties themselves, publishing a hit list of the city’s unmet orders to maintain crumbling vacant buildings on ottawa.ca is one of the strategies the city will use to crack down on landowners who leave structures in disrepair. FOLLOW-UP

That new strategy was revealed to the city’s community and protective services committee during an April 18 meeting along with a rundown of current measures and future ideas to clean up rundown empty buildings. The report was a follow-up to a commitment Mayor Jim Watson and some of his council colleagues made at a press conference six weeks ago. After years of leniency, the crackdown means the city is enforcing its property standards bylaw more strictly. Two city bylaw officers have already been tackling a list of derelict properties – both vacant

and in use – and issuing orders for maintenance. “Our goal now, as of this day, to look forward and say … .your building might be vacant, but from the street you won’t notice it,” said Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury, who has the highest concentration of derelict vacant buildings in his ward. That extends to occupied buildings such as rooming houses. The city has partnered with ACORN, a low-income and tenant advocacy organization, to proactively deal with negligent landlords. So far, the partnership has resulted in the discovery of 518 deficiencies in four buildings. The city issues a total of 73 orders for issues in those four buildings to be cleaned up. New strategies to crack down on derelict properties will be drafted through consultations starting in June and presented to the committee in September. Some of the ideas staff will look at include: * Limiting tax reductions property owners receive if their buildings are vacant. * Setting higher maintenance standards to improve the appearance of buildings and prevent them from detracting. * Requiring property owners to

The city, led by Mayor Jim Watson, left, and Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury, is moving forward with a crackdown on owners of derelict vacant properties. The city’s community and protective services committee received an update on new ideas to strengthen the city’s ability to crack down on negligent property owners. buy a licence if they want to keep their property vacant. Watson said he had a question for property owners who refuse to comply with the city’s orders to repair their buildings: “Why don’t you take pride in your community and your property?”

A hint of the answer came from a couple delegates who spoke to the committee on behalf of property owner interests. John Dickie of the Eastern Ontario Landlord Organization said there are many circumstances, financial or otherwise, that could result in a

property ending up in a poor state. Owners sometimes avoid spending money to maintain their buildings so they have enough resources left to invest in rebuilding or redeveloping it, Dickie said. “It’s a tradeoff. (A) tradeoff between waste of money and impact on the neighbour,” he said. “It has impacts on neighbours, and we admit that.” Shirley Dolan, president of the Carleton Landowners Association, wondered why the city thought owners would be more willing to pour money into their properties now, when the economy is in a downturn, compared to previous decades when owners likely had more financial resources, but still didn’t maintain their buildings to the city’s standard. Dolan said “beauty is in the eye of the beholders. “I really don’t think that bullying property owners into improvements because you don’t like the look of the property is the way to go,” she said. The city should be more lenient in letting owners tear down buildings they don’t want to maintain, Dickie said. “What’s wrong with a vacant lot? I grew up across from a vacant lot,” he said.

Run for a ‘Goode’ cause Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - Pacers, partnerships and pledge forms are making the third annual Goode Run more appealing than ever for runners of all skill levels. The charity run on Saturday, May 11, is the largest fundraising event for the Osgoode Youth Association, and last year attracted about 400 people who walked and ran two, five and 10-kilometre routes on Osgoode’s multi-use pathway. This year, event organizers are raising the bar with professional elements like learn-to-run clinics leading up the big day and pacers for the five and 10kilometre routes. “There are people running the race that are more committed to improving their runs and making a certain time, and we had that request (for pacers) from a few people last year,” said Nicole McKerracher, executive director of O-YA. McKerracher and event organizer Heather Roe partnered with several elite runners from Good Guys Tri, a nonprofit group that uses running events to support charitable causes. Several Good Guys members visited one of the weekly learn-to-run clinics hosted throughout March and April, and they will return as pacers on May 11. For the first time, runners can also collect pledges for their run, which McKerracher hopes will add a few thou-

sand dollars to their fundraising total. In past years only sponsorship money and registration costs were collected. Still, every dollar counts, McKerracher said. “Because the run is entirely volunteer-led, 100 per cent of the money goes back into O-YA,” she said. This year has been particularly challenging without funding from United Way, she added. “2013 is the first year the United Way hasn’t put out a call for proposals in years, so that was a hard hit for us. That is a challenge all across the board for all of our programs.” Any money raised at the run - they’re hoping for about $25,000 - will be used to pay staff, keep the doors open and finance programs. Pledges or not, McKerracher said they won’t meet their goal if registrations don’t pick up soon. They are hoping for 500 participants, and so far they only have about 200 people registered, she said. “It’s always an exciting event here at O-YA as a great community event,” she said. “There’s a really excited buzz around the centre on race day.” A family two-kilometre run/walk begins in front of the youth centre on Osgoode Main Street at 9 a.m. along with the 10-km walk, which is new this year. The five and 10-km runs begin together at 10 a.m. To register visit www.o-ya.ca. For pledge forms email McKerracher at oyacentre@rogers.com.

Jan Harder, second from right, was surprised with the first-ever Community Spirit Award from the Queensway-Carleton Hospital Foundation during a city council meeting on April 24. ‘When we thought of who the first recipient should be, there is no doubt that Jan was the one,’ said Ron Prehogan, left, chair of the foundation’s board. Foundation president and CEO Melanie Adams, second from left, lauded Harder’s ‘passion, drive, commitment and heart.’ Harder said she never considered herself a philanthropist and was not comfortable asking people for money, but it was worth it the hospital’s work impacts so many people and their families, including her own.

The Dylan Beaton Memorial Golf Tournament will raise funds and awareness for Roger’s House, a pediatric palliative care facility. The event is in memory of Dylan, who was diagnosed with Pallister-Killian Syndrome and passed away at one-month of age.

Golf tournament raises funds for Roger’s House Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - Amy and Andrew Beaton’s son was born with Pallister-Killian Syndrome, an extremely rare genetic disorder. The chance of survival was extremely low and the chance of many health complications high. But Dylan defied the odds. He was born on Nov. 29, 2012. The family received perinatal care from Roger’s House, a pediatric palliative care facility, and once Dylan was born, the family moved to the Ottawa location for a week. “They treat you like family,” said Amy. “They made sure we were OK, that Dylan was OK and Dylan was comfortable.” The family was able to move Dylan to their Rockland home, where they celebrated their eldest son’s second birthday, Amy’s birthday, Christmas and New Year’s. “We wanted to start making memories,” said Amy. And they did. Dylan passed away on Jan. 5. “We were able to take our time and say goodbye in a peaceful setting,” she said. “For a parent, that’s important.” The staff, the doctors and nurses at Roger’s House provided the family with support leading up to the birth, after the birth, and after Dylan’s death. They had a professional photographer capture precious moments, nurses would

attend doctor appointments with the family to help explain and provide support. The staff would make house calls and ensure all the prescriptions were readily available. Many also attended the funeral, and Roger’s House provided bereavement support to the family. “They continued to be there for us,” said Amy. “They were honest with us and compassionate with us; they cried with us … They wanted to know us, they wanted to know Dylan. They wanted to know just how we were doing. “They care.” The Beaton’s family friend Tracy Taylor – who was pregnant during the same period as Amy – wanted to do something to honour Dylan’s memory for her friend and help other families. They decided to host the inaugural Dylan Beaton Memorial Golf Tournament to raise funds and awareness for Roger’s House. HUGE HELP

“Roger’s House was just such a huge help … We got talking and wanted to give back,” said Taylor. “We decided to do something to raise money and raise awareness for Roger’s House and what it does for families in the area.” Roger’s House was created in Roger Neilson’s honour, Hockey Hall of Fame Coach and Member of the Order of Canada, by the Ottawa Senators Foundation and the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, the Ontario Min-

istries of Health and Children and Youth Services. The facility is an eight-bed palliative care building on the grounds of CHEO. It provides services and supports to families with children who have life-limiting illnesses. The memorial golf tournament will be held on June 17 at the Canadian Golf and Country Club, with a noontime shotgun start. The event is $120 and includes 18 holes with a power cart, lunch and dinner. There will be raffles and a silent auction as well. Taylor said the goal is to raise $25,000, all of which will go to Roger’s House. “This is a way to (honour Dylan),” said Taylor. Amy said Roger’s House really helped them through a very difficult time. “No parent should have to go through it, but if they do, this is the way,” she said. “They are amazing, the doctors and nurses. I don’t know how they do it. “We want to give back to them. They gave us so much.” The tournament is still looking for sponsors to help support the event.

Last-minute CDP consult attracts undecided residents laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Despite expressions of anger and regret over a secret deal struck between a group of developers and the Centretown community association, the mood at an April 23 community design plan meeting was civil. The Centretown Citizens Community Association called the 11th-hour meeting to seek public comment on the deal struck by its board. The choice put to community members basically boiled down to whether people favoured the community design plan supported by city staff or the deal reached between a group of developers and the Centretown community associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board. Reasoned arguments were made on both sides, with community association planning committee member Debby Hanscom lamenting the negotiations that even she was left out of, and community association board member Brian Bourne defending the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deal with developers. A reoccurring theme during the meeting was dismay over the community association boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s choice to strike a deal with developers in secret and bring it to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planning committee on behalf of the broader community, which was not aware of the deal. Centretown Citizens Community Association president Jordan Charbonneau said in hindsight, the discussions should have been more open. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wish we had been more inclusive from the beginning,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We recognize that it upset people.â&#x20AC;? Timelines were short and the board was unsure what â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if anything â&#x20AC;&#x201C; would come from the discussions, Charbonneau said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because there was so

much likelihood for outrage, we wanted to see if it was even possible first,â&#x20AC;? Charbonneau said. The April 23 meeting was a way to seek that broader involvement, he said. It worked â&#x20AC;&#x201C; almost 150 people packed into the Dominion-Chalmers Church basement. But the results of the consultation were murkier. Many people who spoke admitted they were becoming involved in the process late in the game and had trouble comprehending the complex information that had evolved over three years of work and consultation. In the end, the vast majority of people in attendance put up their hands to vote that they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know which option would be best. The show of hands is just one factor the community association board will use to form its position on how to move forward, Charbonneau said. The association will also be looking to communications from residents and word of mouth. LANDMARK BUILDINGS

The root of the difference between the developer-community board deal and the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed plan is how they would deal with provisions for allowing taller buildings. Under the community design plan supported by city staff, this would be done under a landmark buildings policy. Most people on either side of the argument agreed that the application for the policy would be limited to only a handful of properties in Centretown. It would place a list of restrictive requirements on where a â&#x20AC;&#x153;landmarkâ&#x20AC;? building could go and what it would have to look like. I would also require builders to include either a community

Hanscom argued in her presentation. Some residents, including Thomas McVeigh, agreed. He said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not afraid of tall buildings, but he is afraid of losing Centretownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vibrant street life. Allowing a small number of very tall buildings will also allow Centretownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population to grow while preserving the low-rise neighbourhoods on the east and west sides of Centretown, he said. Another resident, Diana Forbes, said the landmark buildings policy might be beneficial if it helped create a space for something benefi-

UNDECIDED

But most people at the meeting seemed undecided or unsure of the details of the policies and what they meant. Doug Williams, a resident of the Golden Triangle, called it a â&#x20AC;&#x153;headlong rush to the finish line.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It feels premature,â&#x20AC;? he said. The Centretown community design plan has already seen multiple delays and it is now set to be considered for final approval by full city council on May 8, said Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes. Before that happens, there will be one final public meeting during which city staff to reveal its response to the deal between the developers and the community association board. That meeting was set to take place at city hall on April 30 at 1:30 p.m. Moving forward, Charbonneau said getting involved with the community association is the best way to ensure the group represents residentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; interests. The association has around 100 paid members and a mailing list that goes to 250 interested people.

saw removing all limits on building heights in Centretown save for the Parliamentary view plane would be ludicrous. Instead, they favour something that would help green Centretown in smaller ways, by offering modest increases in building height in exchange for a certain amount of public open space on the property, which is referred to in the community-developer deal as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;small momentsâ&#x20AC;? policy. Ted Fobert of FoTenn Consultants said the group of seven developers he represents are â&#x20AC;&#x153;looking in a truly altruistic way at the community of Centretownâ&#x20AC;? by giving up the opportunity to build tall towers under the landmark buildings policy. But people on the other side of the argument said the developers would be gaining, not giving anything up. Far more properties in Centretown would qualify under the â&#x20AC;&#x153;small momentsâ&#x20AC;? provisions, meaning Centretown could see a proliferation of 15-storey buildings as opposed to the nine-story limit set out in the community design plan.

Hospice hosts Girls Night Out Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC events – Always a hit with the ladies, Friends of Hospice Ottawa is set to host its seventh-annual Girls Night Out event on May 31. This year, the evening event will take place at Algonquin College. Tickets are $70, which includes dinner and wine, and a silent auction with more than 200 items. “The big attraction is that we have firefighters escorting the ladies to their tables, helping with the raffle and then they help with carrying out the heavy items at the end of the evening,” said Alice Holst, a

volunteer with Friends of Hospice Ottawa. “We have entertainer extraordinaire George Thomas. He’s promised us he’ll have everyone up singing and dancing, clapping along and enjoying the music.” The fundraising goal for the event is $75,000, with proceeds going to the hospice’s services and programs that are provided at no charge. “We encourage people to come out,” said Holst. “It’s a nice way for them to support us while they’re enjoying themselves.” Friends of Hospice Ottawa is a palliative care registered charity, serving residents

of Kanata, Stittsville-Goulbourn, Nepean, West Carleton, Manotick and Kars. The hospice organization offers in-home, caregiver and bereavement support, as well as a day hospice, transportation, community education, emergency residential care, and provides information and referrals free of charge to terminally ill clients and their families. The organization recently bought Trinity Presbyterian Church on McCurdy Drive to help co-ordinate all its efforts under one roof.

Agriculture Museum sprouts new events for spring EMC News - Spring is here, and the Canada Agriculture Museum has a list of events planned to draw people out of winter hibernation and into the rustic environment of the Central Experimental Farm. The farm’s long-awaited learning centre – a converted heritage building - is scheduled to open on May 4 with a day of activities to entertain the whole family. The inaugural exhibition is titled A Piece of Cake, which teaches participants what agricultural processes go into making the ingredients of a simple apple cake. The production of flour, eggs, maple syrup, apples, milk and butter is more difficult than most consumers would think, and the exhibit serves to make people appreciate the complexity and fragility of Canada’s food chain. Activities aimed at kids, demonstrations and a cooking show are among the things people can enjoy at the exhibit. Participants can also

see live chicks hatching and visit farm animals in the facility’s stables. During the weekend of May 18 to 20, fur will fly during the museum’s annual Sheep Shearing Festival. Visitors can watch the farm’s sheep shed their winter coats at the hands of skilled shearers. Demonstrations will teach the practices of training border collies (who herd sheep), spinning and weaving, felt-making and more. Later, on June 19, the Canada Agricultural Museum Foundation will hold its seventh annual Baskets with Panache! fundraising event. As in past years, donations and proceeds will go towards allowing children with financial or physical challenges to take part in fun museum activities. The fundraiser takes place in a heritage barn and will feature a traditional country fair motif. Located at 901 Prince of Wales Dr, the museum’s events list and related information can be viewed at www.agriculture.technomuses.ca.

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Taking advantage of lower ridership rates between school years, work begins on the O-Train service expansion project on April 27. Between that date and Sept. 2, the transit line will be shut down to make way for track, bridge and tunnel maintenance, station upgrades, and the construction of passing tracks in two locations - one of them near Gladstone Avenue, the other by Brookfield Road. The $59-million project was approved by city council in 2011. During the shutdown, service to each of the five O-Train stations will be offered by Route 107. That route will follow the southeast Transitway from South Keys Station to Heron, then connects to Bronson Avenue via Data Centre Avenue. The route then performs a loop of Campus/University avenues at Carleton University before leaving Bronson to connect to Preston Street via Carling Avenue. It then continues down Preston Street to Albert Street to reach the Lebreton Transitway Station. Construction of passing tracks will allow for

double the number of trains to run â&#x20AC;&#x201C; four instead of two â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with service going from every 15 minutes to every eight minutes after the new infrastructure has been tested. The city will receive delivery of six new diesel Alstom Coradia Lint trains this fall to replace the three Bombardier trains that have been in service since the line opened in 2001. The city has notified Carleton University that there will be some traffic congestion in the area of the River Building once work commences. As of press time, OC Transpo has not responded to requests for information on the possibility of disruptions in the areas where passing tracks are being constructed. Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs, whose eastern ward boundary is the O-Train line, said her office has had â&#x20AC;&#x153;no notification (that) it would be required.â&#x20AC;? Upgrades to increase the O-Trainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capacity are being carried out this year in advance of the planned shutdown of Hurdman Station in 2015. When that major transit hub is closed during the construction of the Confederation LRT line, the O-Train should be able to handle the increased number of riders expected to use the service as an interim measure.

Public board rejects extra Ombudsman powers eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC news – A motion by a south Ottawa public trustee to give the Ontario ombudsman extra authority to investigate and intervene in complaints that aren’t resolved within the school boards, was voted down on April 2. Gloucester-Southgate trustee Mark Fisher, brought forward the motion seeking support from his fellow trustees to write a letter to the premier and leaders of the official opposition, asking them to re-introduce and support legislation to modernize the Ombudsman act. Fisher was the only one that voted in favour of the motion. “I am disappointed but certainly, that will not stop me as an individual trustee moving forward and trying to advocate for this kind of change,” said Fisher. The legislation that Fisher is fighting for would allow the ombudsman to investigate public complaints involving school boards as well as the governing bodies of universities, hospitals and municipalities “The majority of the trust-

MARK FISHER

ees felt that if the Ombudsman had the responsibility to investigate public complaints that would undermine and take away the responsibility from school boards,” he said. “I think there is a lot of merit in putting in place another level of recourse for parents.” According to the 201112 annual report of the ombudsman, Ontario has fallen behind in oversight of organizations providing critical public services referred to as the “MUSH” sector – municipalities, universities, school boards, hospitals, nursing homes and long-term care fa-

cilities, police, and children’s aid societies. “There are parents that find themselves in tough situations and feel they need to seek out another avenue to get another hearing in a more fair and impartial way,” said Fisher. “Extending these responsibilities to the office of the Ombudsman made ultimate sense to me.” Fisher said he wished trustees had taken more time to understand how the office of the Ombudsman works and how they could relate to that office in a meaningful and respectful way. “At the end of the day the Ombudsman is not going to look at any complaint unless due process has been followed and exhausted at the local level – this includes engaging the teacher, then the principal, school board officials and trustees,” he said. He said the legislation seeks to enhance the level of transparency and accountability in the education sector. Rideau-Vanier trustee Rob Campbell who chose to abstain said it was unfortunate that the motion was defeated without seeking to improve it. “I think it is too bad that the

board as a whole wasn’t more supportive and I think there was something of value in his motion,” said Campbell. Campbell said he suggested a few amendments, which Fisher didn’t want to incorporate in his motion, including one that sought the motion to just focus on school boards. “He declined to seek those amendments so I had to abstain, though I support his motion in principle,” said Campbell. “If his motion had passed that would be one more avenue for recourse for citizens and I am confident the people I represent would be all for it.” Campbell added that for

years now trustees across the province have felt their powers and authority are not respected. Fisher said voting down his motion will not stop him from continuing to advocate for it. “I am going to continue moving forward because I know it is the right thing to do,” Fisher said. “I have received messages from people across Ontario, commending me on the effort and indicating their disappointment that the board didn’t support it. I am going to talk to local MPPs, write a letter to the premier of Ontario and leaders of the opposition asking them to re-introduce legislation that died because

of prolongation.” In 2011-12, the ombudsman received a record number of complaints and inquiries about the MUSH sector. During the same period, the ombudsman received 119complaints and inquiries about Ontario’s school boards. None of them could be dealt with. Many were from parents concerned about things like student suspensions, lack of adequate special education supports, the treatment of students with autism, insufficient consultation about school closures, and inadequate responses to bullying. These complaints had to be turned away or referred elsewhere.

chelle. In the end she picked up the phone and called Walk With Me, an emergency care organization for victims of human trafficking. Michelle escaped. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m thankful every day for that,â&#x20AC;? she said. ITâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S HAPPENING HERE

Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - Michelle was only 15 years old when she was forced into prostitution. She was recruited during a vulnerable time in her life, when her parents were going through a rough patch and she was having a hard time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Suddenly, I felt that instead of being needed and wanted, I was alone,â&#x20AC;? said Michelle. She met some older boys who showed an interest, talked and listened to her. They added her to an instant messaging site where they chatted regularly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were so nice,â&#x20AC;? she said, adding they had a car and good clothes. One day, Michelle was taken to an apartment and told to do

anything the man inside asked of her. Her chaperon would wait. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had no clue what he was talking about,â&#x20AC;? she said. But she learned. She did what the man asked and was handed a wad of cash as she left. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was my first lesson,â&#x20AC;? she said. Michelleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pimp kept her under control by using video as blackmail, physically assaulting her and threatening to go after her younger sister if she tried to escape. Men kept a constant watch on Michelle outside her school, her job and her home. Eventually, her parents kicked her out of the house. She lost her legitimate employment and she dropped out of school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hit rock bottom,â&#x20AC;? said Mi-

Human trafficking is one of the fastest growing enterprises in the world, second only to drug sales and quickly rising. It is estimated that more than 27 million people worldwide are slaves, with girls between the ages of 12 and 22 the most at risk. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening here. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is very real. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening in Ottawa,â&#x20AC;? said Tasha Henderson, education and training coordinator for Persons Against the Crime of Trafficking Humans (PACT-Ottawa). â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think a lot of people arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t willing to accept it or donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know about it.â&#x20AC;?

Natalie Fuso and Kari-Ann Clow, victimology students at Algonquin College and PACTOttawa volunteers, spoke to Grade 12 students at Holy Trinity Catholic High School in Kanata earlier this month. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something we are see-

ing a lot,â&#x20AC;? Clow told the assembled students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an incredible amount of trafficking going on.â&#x20AC;? Human trafficking is the illegal sale of people for forced labour, organ extraction and prostitution. Victims are kept under the control of their traffickers and exploited.

Human trafficking brings in â&#x20AC;&#x153;a profit level higher than Nike, Starbucks and Google combined.â&#x20AC;? The 2011 annual report published by Walk With Me Canada Victim Services highlights the alarming numbers in human trafficking both domestically and internationally. â&#x20AC;˘ Human trafficking has estimated profits of $32 billion annually. â&#x20AC;˘ Approximately 27 million people worldwide are slaves, with girls ages 12 to 22 the most at risk. â&#x20AC;˘ Eighty per cent of people trafficked are women and children; 70 per cent are trafficked for sexual exploitation. â&#x20AC;˘ Every 60 seconds, two children are trafficked for sexual exploitation. Walk With Me has helped numerous people. In 2011, the organization: â&#x20AC;˘ Received 79 domestic crisis calls and four from international victims. â&#x20AC;˘ Had 29 domestic and two international residents in its safe house. â&#x20AC;˘ Provided 2,124 hours of care for domestic victims and 168 internationally. â&#x20AC;˘ Provided first response to 44 people, both male and female. Thirty-six out of the 44 were women. One-hundred per cent of the women were successful in permanently severing ties with their traffickers. All of the females eventually told police they had been trafficked. Ninety-four per cent

of those cases went to, are, or were before the courts. Human trafficking charges were laid in all completed cases. CRIMINAL CODE AMENDMENTS

Walk With Me founder Timea Nagy and chair of the board of directors Robert Hooper, along with Manitoba MP Joy Smith, also created amendments to the Criminal Code with Bill C-310, which was passed last year. Canadians who commit human trafficking offenses outside the country can now be prosecuted in Canada. The second amendment provides specific definitions of exploitive conduct, providing courts with clear examples. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Slavery has not been eradicated in Canada or in the world,â&#x20AC;? said Hooper in his message from the board. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Having said that, many more people know that human trafficking involves the exploitation of people through force, coercion, threat, fraud or deception and may include acts generally defined as human rights abuses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully ... many people have gone from victim to survivor, many others have avoided being trafficked altogether, and hopefully one or two potential traffickers have seen the amendments to the Criminal Code and have thought twice about their activities.â&#x20AC;?

Ottawa case highlights human trafficking Continued from page 44

One victim was recruited at the St. Laurent Shopping Centre, others through social media sites, with seven victims under the age of 18, said Clow. The case is currently before the court. At a news conference last year, Ottawa police Staff Sgt. John McGetrick said the victims were forced into prostitution. It is alleged that a number of girls between the ages of 13 and 17 were lured to an address in south Ottawa and driven to other locations for the purposes of prostitution. McGetrick said the ages of both the victims and the suspects made this a “disturbing and shocking” case. According to PACT-Ottawa, the average age of recruitment into the sex trade in Canada is 14. “With two recent high profile cases of youth domestic trafficking and recruitment in Ottawa, this issue is gaining more attention,” said Christina Harrison Baird, chairwoman and director of policy and legal affairs for PACT-Ottawa. “We know that crime prevention through

education is a major element in the fight against human trafficking.” Currently, there are 77 trafficking cases before Canadian courts, said Fuso. THE GAME

The “game” is a term that many pimps use, said Clow. The main goal of the game is to make money, maintain a “stable” of girls and/or boys, and run a tight ship. “Traffickers do their ground work really well,” said Henderson. The primary tools many traffickers are using include Facebook and other social media sites to track and recruit victims. Any personal information posted online can become a lever to lure young people into the sex trade and keep them there. Traffickers use a number of methods to control their victims and keep them from seeking help: • Threatening the victim and his or her family • Forced drug addiction, tattoos or branding • Blackmail with recorded video footage • Instilling a fear of police

personal stories about domestic trafficking. The video offers both sides of a disturbing story. King looks for vulnerable girls, those who feel unloved or unwanted. “Take the king of the jungle,” he said. “When he’s about to hunt, he doesn’t just get out there. He does research. “He looks, sees which animal is weak, which one’s vulnerable … then he finally makes his move.” King often uses social media as a point of contact. “You have to sell a dream,” said King. “Whatever dream she has, you use it … once you have that, you have everything.” After bringing a girl into his circle, he lavishes her with attention and material items. The “dream” can take months or years to sell. Once hooked, he breaks her down with violent outbursts to “keep her on her toes.” He tells her he needs money quick and knows a way she can help. After all, she owes him for all the gifts. “I have product, not girls,” said King, who rakes in around $4 million a year through human trafficking.

and authority Many victims fear asking for help because of acts they were forced to commit. “A lot of these victims don’t want to come forward,” said Fuso. But the police are trained to treat them as victims, not as perpetrators of a crime. “Their mentality isn’t, ‘Oh, they committed the crime,’” said Clow. The police want victims to come forward to get help. WALK WITH ME

Walk With Me Canada Victim Services was created in 2009 by Timea Eva Nagy, a survivor of human trafficking. She was forced into the Toronto sex trade after immigrating to Canada. The organization, based in Hamilton, Ont., provides first response care for victims and services and support throughout Canada. It also raises awareness and educates on issues of slavery. Walk With Me created a video, shown to the Grade 12 class. It features King, a pimp, and Michelle, a survivor, both from Ontario who share their

One male working under King was caught and charged a fine of $200,000. “That’s a business expense,” said King. “I’ve never been caught,” he added. “Why would I stop?” BE READY

Fuso, a Barrhaven resident, and Clow, who lives in Beacon Hill, discussed ways people may be targeted with the Grade 12 class. People who are teased and bullied, who have an unstable home life or feel isolated can become a prime target for exploitation. “People are trafficked and still live at home with their parents,” said Clow. Fuso and Clow created a chart and the students listed what it meant to be a girl or a boy in society’s terms. Females, they said, are passive, emotional, care about their appearance, and can be sexual objects. Males are muscular, aggressive, dominant, emotionless and players. “No one really fits into these boxes,” said Fuso. “When people don’t fit to these gender stereotypes they can become … a target. “People can have an easier time exploiting them.” Canadians are in a position to do preventative work, to be ready when people come for-

ward, said Henderson. “Think about how we’re treating people; we push people back to their trafficker because they come forward and we don’t believe them,” said Henderson. “We shame them or we blame the victim and it (keeps) them from really seeking the help that they need.” Aside from outreach and education, PACT-Ottawa’s Project Protect is also training front line workers through its Train the Trainer program. “The goal of Train the Trainer is to provide front line service providers in how to support a victim once they come forward,” said Henderson, “to create a strong prime line of who sees the victim first and provides resources.” PACT-Ottawa has also teamed with St. Joe’s Women’s Centre, located in downtown Ottawa, to provide 24/7 assistance for victims of trafficking. “They have agreed to be the first respondent,” said Henderson. “The police and RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) know to refer people their way. “I would implore (people) just to start conversations about trafficking and not think about it happening just over there, overseas. It’s happening in Canada.” With files from Eddie Rwema homehardware.ca

New roof months ahead of schedule, thanks to community Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - When the Raise the Roof fundraising campaign began in 2011, Watson’s Mill director Isabelle Geoffrion thought she was “dreaming in technicolour” to think the mill’s new roof might be done before the end of 2013. Yet weather permitting the new aluminum roof worth $500,000 will be complete by the time the mill opens on May 4 - a full six months ahead of the board’s earliest expectations. “We didn’t think it would happen,” Geoffrion said. “And now it’s April and the first shingle just went on the roof.” Geoffrion attributes the quick turnaround to community support. “It’s the generosity in this community, and the love that people feel for this very special heritage site,” she said. The mill received just over $100,000 in grants, on top of about $150,000 from the mill’s capital projects reserve. The rest came from donations. The ‘year of the roof’ kicked off in early 2011, and Geoffrion said the board of directors was hoping somewhat optimistically - that they could raise the necessary $500,000 in less than two years. “It just seemed so impossible,” she said. But then the donations started coming in. The Kiwanis club was the first group in Manotick to pledge support, committing $20,000.

“That was a huge morale booster,” Geoffrion said. The Manotick Lions then hosted a Night at the Races in support of the roof, and the Mill Tavern started hosting quiz nights. The Manotick community association donated Shiverfest proceeds to the campaign, and Manotick United Church invited the mill to host its monthly Raise the Roof concerts in its building. And then, “the unthinkable happened,” Geoffrion said. At a concert in May, it was revealed that an anonymous benefactor had donated $100,000 to the project through the Community Foundation of Ottawa. “That was so shocking; I was at a loss for words,” Geoffrion said. “Your mind doesn’t register the amount of zeros.” That donation put the board far ahead of schedule, and encouraged other donors to step up. Before they knew it, board members had put the project out for tender. By the beginning of April, scaffolding was going up. “It’s been a long time, and a lot of different boards have planned for this over the years,” said board member Gerry Reisbeck. “Now we’ve delivered. We were very fortunate.” A LONG TIME COMING

The mill last received a new roof in the early 1920s. The original 1860s shingles were replaced then, but the original tongue and groove rough-cut roof boards were not;

EMMA JACKSON/METROLAND

Allister Savage, Isabelle Geoffrion and Gerry Reisbeck show off the mill’s new and old shingles as roofing work carries on at Watson’s Mill on April 22. they’re still up there today. That might be why the roof was leaking in the first place. Reisbeck and fellow board member Allister Savage, who did the engineering consultation for the new roof through his company Stantec, said walking through the attic after the old shingles had been removed was like looking through a starry sky. Sunlight poured through hundreds of pinprick holes in the roof boards. Many areas of the roof have had to be patched before the new aluminum shingles are attached. “No wonder it was raining in the mill,” Geoffrion said.

In 2010 Geoffrion and her staff started putting tarps down on the attic floor alongside the many buckets already there to catch any water that came through the badly leaking roof. The board knew a new roof was necessary as soon as possible, and members set about getting a quote for the work. Most came in around $400,000, and to account for taxes, extra costs and overages the board decided to fundraise an even $500,000. “We wanted to make sure that once we were ready to go we didn’t have to stop,” Geoffrion said.

Despite the joyful celebration of a new roof for Watson’s Mill, challenges still lie ahead for Manotick’s heritage quarters. The city is preparing to take offers for purchase and development of Dickinson Square, and resident community groups like Watson’s Mill Management Inc, Rideau Township Historical Society and Rural Ottawa South Support Services are waiting to find out if they will still call the square their home in 2014. “This is the year we will finally know if we can plan long-term,” Geoffrion said. The city is in the process of selling or leasing five buildings in the square to recoup costs associated with purchasing them in 2007. While members of the city-led Manotick Mill Quarter community development committee have made efforts to make sure the square’s green space remains accessible to the public and that any development fits into the square’s heritage atmosphere, those provisions don’t guarantee that the heritage buildings currently leased by non-profit groups will still be available once new owners take over. “That’s another challenge and it will be our next challenge to overcome,” Geoffrion said. Watson’s Mill has already met with the city to express an interest in staying in the carriage shed, and Geoffrion said the board expects to put an offer in for one or several of the buildings either as an individual party or in partnership with other heritage groups in the square.

Blackboard zeal leads to outhouse chore

T

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories pily and even a bit smugly. It was an honour and one not to be taken lightly. There was no such thing as a school caretaker back then. We scrubbed the floors once a month, took ashes out of the stove, washed the windows and one of us, for a whole week, had the job of emptying the big green tin waste basket at the end of each day. One of the jobs nobody wanted was one assigned on the last school day of every month. Because it was a detested job, it always went to a boy from Senior Fourth. He would carry the pail of lime out of the cupboard at the back of the school, carry it to the outhouse and shovel in a heaping dose. Inside the outhouse there was a tin can of lime which we were supposed to use when we went

to the bathroom for serious business, but I was pretty sure back then that very few pupils bothered. And every morning, just after singing God Save the King, Miss Crosby would announce the name of the person who would be given the privilege of cleaning off the blackboards and that day, the job fell to Two Mile Herman. Thinking she was going to get on the good side of Miss Crosby, Marguirite sneaked back into the school during afternoon recess and stole the job away from Two Mile Herman right out from under his nose. Well, when Miss Crosby rang the bell and we marched back in (all in order of course – the youngest of us at the front of the line, the oldest

ones bringing up the rear), there was Marguirite beaming ear-to-ear with the blackboards rubbed clear. What she hadn’t done, which was always part of the job, was to take the brushes outside and pound them together to get rid of the chalk dust. She left them sitting on the ledge of the blackboard. To say Two Mile Herman was roary-eyed mad was an understatement. “That was my job, you dirty little Protestant,” he roared – Two Mile Herman was Catholic. Sixteen pairs of eyes darted (there were 18 of us at the Northcote School) from Miss Crosby, who wouldn’t tolerate for a second an outburst like she just heard from Two Mile Herman, then to Marguirite, then back to Herman. I was sure he would get a taste of the leather strap which hung on a cup hook on the side of the teacher’s desk. And Marguirite, sitting so smug you just wanted to slap her, was beaming. Well, it didn’t take the rest of the day for Miss Crosby to settle the issue. She didn’t say a word to Two Mile Her-

man. Not a single word. Her face was turning beet red and she marched to the front of the room, took the brushes off the ledges – the ledge ran the full length of the blackboard at the front of the school and all down the south side, so there were six brushes in all – and marched right down to Marguirite’s desk.

“Young lady, if you are so anxious to work, you can take these outside and get rid of the chalk dust and when you are finished, you can go to the cloak room and get the pail of lime and go to the outhouse. You know what has to be done.” Her voice had risen to a high pitch and she practi-

‘Young lady, if you are so anxious to work, you can take these outside and get rid of the chalk dust and when you are finished, you can go to the cloak room and get the pail of lime and go to the outhouse. You know what has to be done.’

here’s goin’ to be heck to pay,” Emerson said at recess that day when the warm spring weather had finally arrived and the entire school was out in the schoolyard – even Miss Crosby. She was sitting on the stoop working on her daybook and enjoying the warm sunny day. Emerson went on to explain: “Miss Crosby told Two Mile Herman it was his turn to clean off the blackboards after school. And when I went back in the school to get the ball glove out of the cloak room, there was Marguirite wiping the blackboards like a maniac. The chalk dust was flying everywhere. I tell you Miss Crosby won’t be happy and Two Mile Herman will just about kill Marguirite.” Back then it was a privilege to be asked to do any of the cleaning necessary to keep the school as neat and tidy as possible. Miss Crosby had to be careful not to give the privilege to the same person too often or the rest of us would be mad. Whatever job we were given, we did it hap-

with Clean Eating and Active Living Combating Sugar

Failing to Plan is

Cravings

Planning to Fail

We all have been known to reach for that sugary treat once in a while, but what if you can’t seem to get enough? One of the most common causes for sugar cravings is linked to a hormone imbalance. As a result your mood and energy get low. To help, your body simply looks for quick fuel and the happy hormone serotonin. So what can you do? Prevention is the key. Start your day off right by exercising to increase serotonin. Then have a whole grain breakfast which helps to balance your blood sugar. Next, include cruciferous high fibre veggies like kale which helps your hormones. For all of your meals, work on including protein and healthy fats from foods like walnuts, which help tell your body you are full. Lastly, sprinkle spices like cinnamon, coriander and saffron, to any of your creations to kick your cravings to the curb even more!

Safari shots help photographer win national award brier.dodge@metroland.com

... I’m going to look at some of the other options and continue doing what I’m doing RANDY SHAUGHNESSY

as a youth, but kept photography as a part-time passion while working in information technology. The Orléans resident decided to dive in and become a full time photographer, shooting weddings, portraits, wildlife, and everything in between. “The last three years I’ve gone full speed into it, 90 per cent of my time is into photography,” he said.

He operates a studio out of his home, Shaughnessy Photography, and travels around the world photographing people, landscapes and animals. Soon he will lead photo safari tours, helping other photographers with the small details he’s picked up along his travels in Tanzania. “There’s everything you can imagine there,” he said. Shaughnessy said when he goes on vacation, it’s different than most – while many are sitting on the beach, he’s hiking trails, camera in hand. He’s also about to start teaching a continuing education photography course at St. Matthew High School. He hopes to enter a different category in future years to his different skills in photography. “It’s always keeping variety, so I’m going to look at some of the other options and continue doing what I’m doing,” Shaughnessy said. “Onward and upward, looking for more challenges.”

Orléans photographer Randy Shaughnessy recent won a premier Canadian Photographic Artist of the Year award for his photography. SUBMITTED

R0012049303

EMC news - Ask Randy Shaughnessy what the biggest challenge is shooting wild animals on a Tanzanian safari, and he’ll tell you dust. Spoken like a true photographer, he’s more worried about protecting his lenses and getting a clear shot than the sweltering African heat or photographing wild lions. “You learn it’s not that risky, the cats see you not as a person in a vehicle, but a vehicle the size of an elephant,” Shaughnessy said. “Patience is a big thing. Cats in the middle of the day are pretty boring – it’s waiting around for something to happen.” For his wildlife and nature photography, Shaughnessy was honoured with a premier Canadian Photographic Artist of the Year Award, which he received at the Professional Photographers of Canada Association’s annual conference in Vancouver. Awards were given for portrait, commercial, wedding and Shaughnessy’s award, specialist (photographic artist). He said judges look for variety in the photos selected, and imagines they haven’t seen before. His set included photos from Tanzanian safaris, and travels throughout North America.

In 2012, he won the provincial Photographic Artist of the Year award, and best in class for the animal – wild/domestic category. “This year I’ve stepped up and submitted some enhancements,” he said. “Some of them were the same photos with little changes. Often when you go in and are judged, you get ideas of ways you can bring (your photos) up to another level.” He started shooting the mountains in Alberta, where he grew up,

ABCs of infant care offered at Early Years Expo Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - For parents with questions about car seats, breast feeding, or child safety, the Early Years Expo is a place to get answers. The Early Years Expo is being held on May 4 at the South Fallingbrook Community Centre at 998 Valin St. Mayor Jim Watson will open the event at 11 a.m., but the expo itself will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of our exhibitors are service-oriented, you can get a lot of information,â&#x20AC;? said Lyne Proulx, event coordinator of the expo. Exhibits range from public health immunization to day-care services to commercial exhibitors. The expo has expanded from last year, and will have more seminars and presentations. Organizers have upgraded to booths instead of tables for exhibitors, and more events have been added for children who attend. There will be a meet and greet with Dora the Explorer and Diego, characters from childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s television shows, from 11 a.m. to noon, and costumed ďŹ gures dressed as Spiderman and Rapunzel from 2 to 3 p.m. and an all day kidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s corner with games and crafts. Several of the seminars are also child-friendly, and La Leche League will set up a breastfeeding and diaper change area. There will be a car seat clinic running from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., which will request a $30 donation, through Seats for Kids Canada. Local author Tammy Plunkett will also discuss her new book, Being Human at noon. Her

talk is titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Busting the Perfect Parent Myth.â&#x20AC;? Last year, about 500 people visited the expo, said Proulx. This year, through more publicity, they are hoping to attract an even larger crowd. The expo is geared towards parents of children up to the age of three. Except for the car seat clinic and the barbecue, all of the events are free. SEMINARS

Heritage garden to grow in Vernon Emma Jackson

get established. The northern bed will be preserved for heritage vegetables like carrots, parsnips and tomatoes. Briggs said the museum will source heritage varieties that would have been used in the 1890s. As part of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s project, the museum will also move its war memorial slightly south and east to the end of the current driveway, about 10 feet from its current location. Once a hedge is planted behind the memorial and around the south side of the garden, Briggs said it will be better seen by the public. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not in a very (effective) spot, so it deserves some respect,â&#x20AC;? he said.

emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - Inch by inch and row by row, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to make their garden grow. Staff at the Osgoode Township Heritage Society and Museum are finally breaking ground on a heritage school garden, as part of a fiveyear plan to landscape the Vernon museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s property for agricultural interpretation. Staff at the museum wanted to start their garden construction last summer, but the project was delayed when planning took longer than expected in conjunction with a larger long-term plan mandated by the city. But with the help of heritage garden designer Lynn Armstrong, staff will officially break ground on Saturday, May 4 with a sod-turning ceremony and reception at the museum beginning at 10 a.m. Museum president Gary Briggs said within the next five years as much as a one third of the old schoolhouseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s property could be covered in heritage flowers, vegetables, grains and trees. Phase one of the project will be to build a heritage school garden, approximately 100 feet by 100 feet in size, that will feature heritage vegetable and perennial gardens as well as a number of plots set aside for students and community groups to get involved. Students would be given access to heritage seeds and given free range to plant what they want. Throughout the spring they will be able to tend to their vegetables and taste the fruits of their labour. Phase one will begin as soon as the ground is dry in May, and should wrap up in the summer. Briggs said the school garden tradition came from Upper Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s education commissioner Egerton Ryerson in the mid-1880s,

FUTURE PLANS

EMMA JACKSON/METROLAND

Osgoode Township Museum president Gary Briggs stands near the sight of a new heritage school garden which will be installed in front of the museum this spring and summer. when he decreed that all schools should have student-run vegetable and flower gardens. Since the museum was once a school, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a nice fit, Briggs said. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also an incredible educational opportunity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If kids start gardening, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an educative thing,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have as much opportunity to learn now.â&#x20AC;? SITE PLAN

The garden will be located directly in front of the museum, beside the playground and running along Bank Street. The current driveway will become an â&#x20AC;&#x153;entry courtyardâ&#x20AC;? with trees and benches leading into the square. Flower and vegetable gardens will flank three sides of the garden. The pathway lead-

ing into the site will pass a summer house which will hold garden tools readily available for visitors who want to get their hands dirty. Four large student plots will be arranged in a square around the gardenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s centrepiece, a steel pergola made by the late artist Bruce Garner and donated to the project by his wife. A series of stone dust pathways around the gardenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s edge and leading into the centre will allow visitors to get up close and personal with the vegetables and flowers within. On the south side of the square, a perennial bed will feature heritage plants like peonies, lilies and irises - some of which Briggs hopes to source from the community, especially if they can provide information about where the plant originated. He hopes to curate the garden so that each plantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heritage is recorded and can be passed on at future plant sales and events. The eastern bed along Bank Street will likely begin with annuals, but slowly convert to perennials as the garden and its volunteers

After this summer, the museum will begin work on more gardens behind the main building and beside the barn, including a heritage apple orchard. A pathway will stretch from Lawrence Street to the barn and over to the garden in the front. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As part of the city of Ottawa weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re tasked with telling the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agricultural story,â&#x20AC;? said museum manager Robin Cushnie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t done much with our land, so this is taking us out of our proverbial box.â&#x20AC;? This summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s project will cost about $10,000 and the five-year landscaping project will likely cost about $50,000. Much of the projectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s material has been donated by local businesses, Briggs said, including stone dust from Tomlinson, excavation from Topline Equipment, geotextile cloth from Terrafix Geosynthetics and wood from Eastern Ontario Pallets. Local resident Mike Bernard will also help prepare the site with some of his personal machinery. Briggs said the museum is looking for volunteers to help during several work days this spring, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to partner with a high school class to make a small footbridge for a new pedestrian entrance off Bank Street.

Past attendee a guest artist at this year’s Studio Tour OttawaOttawa SouthSouth United Soccer Club United Soccer Club jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - Amie Talbot has attended the Kanata Artists Studio Tour many times in the past as a member of the public, but this year she’ll contribute to the event for the first time as an artist. “When I was younger I went to them,” said the Morgan’s Grant artist. “Now I get to participate.” Talbot is one of three guest artists this year who will be partnered with a featured studio tour artist during the 22nd annual event. She is teamed with oil and watercolour artist David Farrar. “It’s nice to be teamed up with him,” said Talbot, who uses pencil crayons to create colourful art. Talbot is self taught. She chose the medium because “I had seen it done before and I was pretty amazed you could do that with pencil crayons,” she said, adding she’s been studying and practicing her craft for seven years. Talbot, who owns a home cleaning company, said eventually she’d like to draw full-time. “It’s almost a part of your identity,” she said. Other guest artists include RicharD Murphy, and Susan Ukkola, while feature artists include Karl Kischel, Beulah McLellan, Susan Goold, Judi Miller, Margaret (Peggy) Hughes, Elizabeth Potvin, Violeta Borisonik, Rosemary Randell, Janis Miller Hall and Farrar. Goold, a founding member of the tour, said she looks forward to the event every year.

“It’s a nice way to introduce people to art,” said the Beaverbrook artist. “Year after year, we’ve had crowds come.” Goold uses watercolours and acrylics to create her paintings. “I want to create visual poetry,” she said. “It’s just something I love to do.” She added Kanata is a great community to draw inspiration from. “Everything’s here,” she said.

WHERE THE MAGIC HAPPENS

The Studio Tour will give people a close-up look at where the magic happens for each artist. Last year, more than 500 people attended the weekend art show. “It’s one-of-a-kind,” said Goold. Elizabeth Potvin said it’s as much a social event as it is about the art. “It’s fun,” she said about inviting people into her home studio in Kanata Lakes. “To have people come and just to have people look at your work. “This year we’ve really made a big effort to jazz things up.” The participating artists will be showing off a wide-range of works, from colourful watercolours to abstract mixed-media pieces. The studio tour takes place the first weekend in May: on May 3 from 5 to 9 p.m., and May 4 and 5 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free.

Pet Adoptions DUKE

STUBBS

ID#A152261

Duke is 10 month-old energetic, neutered male, tricolor Coonhound who loves to say hello to everyone he meets. He was transferred to the Ottawa Humane Society from another shelter on April 5, and is now available for adoption. He’s got a tone of energy to burn so he’d love to go hiking and running on-leash daily. Mentally stimulating courses like agility, fly-ball or scent tracking would be

lots of fun for Duke! He gets along with other dogs that are big, silly and goofy like him and can handle his style of play. Duke needs a feline and small mammal free home as he may get the urge to chase them. Duke will need a detached home where his serenading of passersby won’t be an issue! Stubbs is a 5 year-old, neutered male, gray and white Domestic Shorthair cat

who love to be pet everywhere! He was brought to the Ottawa Humane Society as a stray on December 26, 2012 and is now available for adoption. This unique cat has a cute little stub of a tail, like a bunny. He gets along with anyone with an empty lap, or lonely-looking windowsill! He’s been patiently waiting in the Adoption Centre for someone to come scoop him up and take him home so he can offer all his kitty love. Stubbs is a “Special Needs” adoption as he will require a special diet due to possible underlying inflammatory bowel disease.

PET OF THE WEEK

Visit the OHS website at www. ottawahumane.ca to see photos and descriptions of all of the animals available for adoption. Stop by the Adoption Centre, weekdays 11:00am7:00pm and Saturdays 10:00am-5:00pm.

De-skunking your dog soda; and 1 teaspoon liquid dishwashing soap. Wearing rubber gloves, wash your dog with this solution as soon as possible. Don’t get the solution in the dog’s eyes. (If you don’t have peroxide, baking soda, and liquid soap on hand, use vinegar diluted with water.) Don’t save this mixture or make it ahead of time, as the mixture could explode if left in a bottle. Rub the mixture through the dog’s fur, but don’t leave it on too long (peroxide can bleach fur). Rinse thoroughly. Next, wash your dog with pet shampoo and rinse thoroughly. By now, he should be de-skunked and smelling sweet. Thoroughly towel-dry your dog, and be sure to place him in a warm, sunny room for the next couple of hours so that he doesn’t get chilled. He should also have a large dry towel on which to lie down. If you dog has long fur, you may need to use a hair dryer to dry his fur. If your dog rubbed some of the stink onto you, you can rid your clothes of the smell by using regular laundry detergent mixed with a half-cup of baking soda.

Pip

Pip is a little brown tabby, and Vanier resident. She is approximately eighteen years old but was a Humane Society rescue so her mom and dad aren’t quite sure how old she is. Even though she’s getting up there in years, Pip enjoys a hearty meal and will squeak to remind you that she’s hungry. Hobbies include resting on the heating vent and resting on the audio receiver.

Skunks are everywhere—in the country and in the city. The Ottawa Humane Society has received several skunksighting phone calls lately from Ottawa residents wanting to know more about these smelly creatures and looking for advice on how to get the skunk smell out of their dog’s coat. If your dog gets sprayed, there are ways to get rid of the scent without using your entire ketchup (or tomato juice) supply to do it. If you don’t have time to head to the store for over-thecounter odour-remover products, try the following at home remedy provided by the Humane Society of the United States (www.humanesociety.org): While you prepare the de-skunking solution, keep your dog outside so he doesn’t carry the smell into your house. Check his eyes; if they’re irritated or red, immediately flush them with cool water. Mix together: a half-litre of three-percent hydrogen peroxide (available at your local pharmacy) ; 1/4 cup baking
