EMC news - High School girls from across eastern Ontario got a chance to walk in the shoes of women who work in emergency services on April 30. Algonquin College’s police and public safety institute teamed up with the City of Ottawa for the second year to show 75 high school girls what it means to work in policing, fire fighting and paramedicine. “We reach out to the public and Catholic School boards here in Ottawa,” said Kimya Keyhan, who works as a manger in strategic partnerships at the college. “We also send out invitations to the Upper Canada District School Board and the Catholic District board. They select the students they want to participate and then they can come and learn more about the women who have pursued these careers. Susan Jones, who works

with the city’s bylaw department, said the department is an option for people looking at a career in policing. “We hire many students out of the college’s policing program. Sometimes they go on to policing or a long career in bylaw services,” she said. Jones added approaching retirement of the city’s “baby boomer” aged workforce, means there is a need for new blood. “We want a workforce that represents the public we serve,” Jones said. “So it makes sense we would encourage women to consider careers in policing, by-law, paramedicine and fire fighting.” Carissa Campbell, who has worked as a fire fighter for three years, said it wasn’t even on her radar when she was in high school. “I didn’t know women could do it,” she said. One day a light bulb went off. See COLLEGE, page 3

City to look at rental inspection policies Continued from front

Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Egli. whose ward the Cheryl Gardens units are in, said the city has very capable bylaw officers, ready to deal with tenants concerns. “There is also court and Tribunal remedies available to assist in situation such as this,” he said. our office will continue to work with the resident as a go between to bylaw and any other city services that might help.”

“I thought it (firefighting) was a cool job, and someone said to me, ‘if you think it’s so cool why don’t you do it?’” Campebell said. “So I went for it. I can’t imagine doing anything else.” Dana Koss, who lives in Kanata, has been on the job for three years. She said one of things she didn’t expect was the different hats she would have to wear. Being on shift can mean being a cook, a janitor, even doing public education. “We wear different hats day to day, sometimes even hour to hour,” she said. This year 75 girls attended the day of work shops, which included trying on gear and getting to use a fire hose.

Taylor said there are a lot of good landlords in the city, but that the new policiy around derelict buildings should help to deal with the ones who don’t keep their properties in good order. “Realistically we are talking about something like three per cent of the city’s landlords. But hopefully in September we will have a more robust plan for dealing with these issues,” Taylor said. In the meantime, the city has

assigned two bylaw officers to complete inspections of the remaining units in mid-May, something that will be happening across the city over the next few months. Cyr said she will continue to try and get her landlord to complete the repairs. “I could just move, but then nothing will get done,” she said. “There needs to be better protection for people who pay rent. I like to say I spend $1,224 a month for my landlord to kill me slowly.” Donna Mrvaljevic, a spokesperson for the Landlord and Tenant Board, said it’s up to the individual municipalities to define their own minimum standards for repair.

Jewish Family Services, OCISO get Trillium boost Steph Willems

EMC news - Two Ottawa agencies are joining forces to offer immigrant settlement services after realizing they could do a better, more efficient job by working together. Currently, the Ottawa Community Immigrant Services Organization and Jewish Family Services of Ottawa offer many of the same services. Now, with the help of a grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, they will be creating a new partnership while streamlining both operations. The $169,800 grant was announced by Ottawa West-Nepean MPP Bob Chiarelli at OCISO’s Hintonburg offices. Chiarelli congratulated both organizations for their “foresight” in initiating the project. “This will serve as a model for other organizations to consolidate and streamline their services,” said Chiarelli. “Both organizations have always been known for their commitment to these causes and their dedication. Nobody’s in it to make a lot of money -people are in it to make a difference, and that comes through each time I go to the JFS office or OCISO.” Wali Farah, director of programming and acting executive director at OCISO, said the funds will be used to

create a centre of excellence for immigrant services in Ottawa. “We are committed to building our community through mutual respect, and strong and meaningful partnerships that strengthen our capacity to best serve immigrants and refuges in our city,” said Farah. “The grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation will help OCISO and JFS Ottawa’s collaborative projects; the main objective of this collaboration will be building a strategic partnership in three areas – settlement services, senior support services, and clinical counseling.” Mark Zarecki, executive director of Jewish Family Services, thanked Chiarelli and Trillium for their investment in social services, adding he is looking forward to the outcome of the partnership. “(It’s) a very different model, which doesn’t take away from either agency’s independence, but it will create synergies for us to work and grow together,” he said.

Living on less than a toonie a day a challenge Brier Dodge

EMC news - Rice, rice and more rice. That’s what’s on the menu for Live Below the Line participants, all of whom are living on $1.75 a day for five days. From April 29 to May 2, 25 Ottawa volunteers took part in a challenge to compare their lives to the 1.4 billion people across the world living in extreme poverty. Those people don’t just need to pay for their food, but housing, transportation, clothing and

everything else with $1.75 or less each day. “Hungry,” is the only word Meaghan Derynck needed to describe the challenge. She said the hardest part of the project has been giving up coffee and all snacks – which she forgot to budget for when spending her $8.75 for the week. The project raises money for Cuso International, Results Canada, Raising the Village and Spread the Net. The 25 Ottawa participants join about 100 others across Canada who are collecting pledges as they complete the challenge. Ariane Cartwright, a Results Canada em-

If you want more - take the next step. Create abundance in all aspects of your life - time, freedom, health and money.



Live Below the Line participant Meaghan Derynck couldn’t wait to take a bite of her 55-cent lunch at The Hub on May 1. She is one of the Live Below the Line participants across Canada living on a $1.75 a day food allowance for five days.

ployee, said a typical day for her meal plan included oatmeal with a third of a shredded apple for breakfast, plain rice with chick peas and split peas for lunch, and frozen mixed vegetables with potato for lunch. “We reached our (fundraising) goal of $25,000, but yeah – we’re hungry,” Cartwright said. “Not belly-aching hungry, but hungry. You don’t have the steam to really make it to 5:30 at work.” She estimated with food, drink and meals out, the average Canadian spends about $75 to $100 a week. The participating Results Canada employees teamed up to shop at a bargain grocery store, splitting up $35 of food between six of them. The shopping list included economy sized frozen vegetables, rice, and oatmeal. Orléans resident Kate Alexander said it’s been a struggle preparing food for her children and then eating her own smaller portion. She said her serving is comparable to many developing areas where the wealthy may have an excess of food, but their poor neighbours much less. “There’s enough food to go around, but not everyone gets it,” she said. On May 1, participants and guests were invited to a lunch at The Hub in downtown Ottawa where Lunch restaurant owner Tim Van Dyke came prepared with 55-cent meals. Van Dyke said staff had to shop around at bargain grocery stores and Chinatown shops in order to make a day’s worth of meals come in at less than $1.75. For lunch, they prepared meat dumplings, made with eight wonton wrappers (eight cents), a third of an Italian sausage (28 cents) and half a tomato (19 cents). Participants intensely debated the meat or vegetable wontons because of the vegetable and cheese in the latter, there were seven wontons instead of eight; a big difference for the hungry bellies. With the $25,000 fundraising goal already reached, the Canadian participants said they would push to raise even more money before they complete the challenge.

New name, building, for Canada Agriculture and Food Museum Renovated Learning Centre to allow year-round programming for visitors Steph Willems

EMC news - In addition to unveiling its new learning centre and related exhibition on the morning of May 2, the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum also revealed its new name. The word â&#x20AC;&#x153;foodâ&#x20AC;? was added to the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name to reflect its focus on the science and technology behind food production. The learning centre had been touted by the museum for some time preceding the unveiling, but the final product was impressive enough to warrant the buildup. Formerly an unheated storage facility at the Central Experimental Farm, the heritage building was transformed into a modern, fullyserviced, year-round educational space thanks to a $4.6 million retrofit. Featuring a ground-floor exhibition space with a lecture hall, classrooms and educational labs on the second floor, the modern, well-lit space will now become the centre of museum activities. The launch included a breakfast and informal tour, and attracted many dignitaries â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including guest of honour Laureen Harper - due to the renovation funding made available in 2008. Speakers at the event discussed the farmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s past while touting its continued significance on the national and international stage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the Central Experimental Farm, since 1886 Agriculture and

Agri-Food Canada has (performed) agricultural scientific research that has improved Canadian agriculture,â&#x20AC;? said Gary Polonsky, chairperson of the museum, adding that many of the advances have been exported worldwide. Denise Amyot, president and chief executive of the museum, took pride in telling her guests that the museum is the only one with an operating farm in any capital city in the world. With the former public space only open for the warmer months, the museum can offer more programming to visitors, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We now will be open and able to welcome visitors for 12 months of the year, so for us this is very, very special,â&#x20AC;? said Amyot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now these new spaces and facilities will allow the museum to bring a wider focus to its mandate and reach out to more people and more audiences.â&#x20AC;? Agricultural interest at the launch went beyond the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exhibitions and mandate, venturing and into the realm of building materials as well. Some of the wall panels in the new learning centre were constructed from byproducts of grain farming, while the wood floor is actually the buildingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original floor, minus the decades-old plywood covering. The first exhibition in the Learning Centre, called A Piece of Cake, shows how the ingredients of a simple apple cake makes it from seeds to fields and eventually to the dinner table.


The ground floor of the new learning centre, seen here, is the site of the exhibition titled A Piece of Cake, which shows the processes needed to create the ingredients of a simple cake.

Open doors, they will come


aseball continues to flounder at Ottawa Stadium. Pity the poor fan awaiting the opening pitch of a new season. The sun is shining, the fans are ready, but there’s no team on the field. The stop-start process of trying to snag a AAclass team for Ottawa Stadium has been frustrating. City staff once proposed condominiums for the parking lot, but that was shot down because fans might need somewhere to park once a AA team gets here. In negotiations to bring a high level of baseball back to Ottawa, teams have thrown the city a few curveballs. So far the Ottawa has whiffed. The Fat Cats of the Intercounty Baseball League were kicked out of the stadium because the city wanted to renovate prior to the arrival of AA ball. Now that AA is guaranteed to miss the 2013 season, the eviction has proved unnecessary. People went to see the Fat Cats. They were family oriented, with low ticket prices and the highest attendance numbers in the league. Forcing the team out prior to a AA deal being finalized now seems like the wrong move. We’re left with a wonderful site and no team. The earliest we will see a AA team – or any pro

baseball at all – will be the 2014 season. It means a whole summer will go by with an empty park. Surely the city would have enough advance notice of the pending arrival of a AA team to get the place fixed up. The negotiations to get a new team to Ottawa have been a mystery. It’s understandable that there will be a period of secrecy during active negotiations to bring a new team here, but there must be some clue if an upcoming season is going to happen or not. With no pro team this summer – and no renovations planned in the short term – the gates of Ottawa Stadium should be thrown open for the community to enjoy. Former Fat Cats general manager Duncan MacDonald has proposed the park could host family events, men’s leagues and Little League baseball this summer. He’s willing to co-ordinate the process, providing turn-key service to the city. It’s a proposal worth considering but the city has said no. The stadium is paid for with residents’ tax dollars; who better to round the bases than the city’s own ball players? There’s only one answer to MacDonald’s proposal: play ball!


Do we really need another gleaming palace of gloom?


f it’s your birthday and you make the proper phone calls, you and some friends can ride in the pace car at Rideau Carleton Raceway. It’s pretty good to be one of those friends. The car, a big Cadillac limousine with a wide metal gate attached to the rear, drives along ahead of the horses. A man in back controls the gate and, in the initial stages, also controls the accelerator. When he accelerates and swings back the gate, the driver in front takes over, the race begins and you in the birthday group, facing sideways, get to watch the race up close, hearing the sounds and feeling the speed -- even if you see a bit more than you might want to of the drivers’ encouragement of the horses. You get let off beside the winner’s circle where the happy owner waits. Then you walk back into the building and up to the restaurant area where people enjoy the buffet and place bets at their table. If you play your cards right, to mix a metaphor, you can have a nice meal and only lose a few dollars on the horses. You can tell, as you wander over for a second dessert, that most of the people are enjoying themselves. They holler encourage-

To enter the restaurant from the parking lot you first have to walk through the slots area. It is brightly lit with lights flashing on the machines which produce a bonging noise that, put together, sounds like music. As an aside, the intriguing thing is that the machines are all in tune. Somebody must have to make sure the slot machines are not flat or sharp — another modern-day occupation. But we digress. Aside from the bonging and flashing, the most noteworthy characteristic of the casino is that no one is smiling or laughing in it. I have walked through Published weekly by:

this room many times on the way into the track and I have never seen anyone laughing or smiling. I see people sitting or standing solemnly in front of their chosen machines, methodically feeding money into them and waiting gloomily for money to come out. From there, walking into the restaurant and the sight of the race track is like walking into the light. The paradoxical thing about this is it’s still gambling, whether you’re betting on a horse or a machine. But it feels different. To bet on a horse, you may scan the racing form and other available information for clues -- what did the horse do in the last race, did it start strongly and fade or did it move up in the late stages of the race; who are its owners, its driver; what are the odds, who are the handicappers picking? Or you might just decide you like the horse’s name. Two dollars on Stanley Cup to win. Somehow going through the process makes you feel like you have a stake in the outcome, and if you win, it is a testament to your skill. If you lose, well it’s only $2. This helps keep you smiling, while you return once again to the dessert table. On you way out, after emerging from the

According to the industry, tens of thousands of jobs are at stake. Now, it’s unfortunate that the racing industry needs the slots to support itself, but if the choice is between keeping the track going and constructing another gleaming palace of gloom, it’s not difficult to know which one to cheer.

The Lousy Christian


don’t write about faith much because, I’ll be honest, I’m a lousy Christian. I have doubt. I sin all the time. Sometimes I disrespect my parents, work through the Sabbath and forget to forgive people. I’m also uncomfortable talking to non-Christians about my faith, which makes me a terrible evangelist; I’m too private and stiff-upper-lipped to wave my hands in the air and chant “Jesus, Jesus,” authentically; and I’m incredibly fickle with my interests. Then in a snap, I’ll exchange the Bible for a business magazines and racy novels. I’m the Christian who goes to church regularly for a period

My self-disappointment happens to be a function of my Christian heritage. Recently, however, I decided that, whatever my current beliefs or behaviours, my faith is important enough to ensure my daughter is baptised into it. I searched around

for a church and decided to return to a downtown community. I don’t usually “return” to a church because I’m always fearful that people will be disappointed, angry or unhelpful, given my prior desertion. Usually, I like to shop around for a new church, a clean slate. But there’s one particular church in Centretown that has been difficult to abandon.. To reduce expectations, I thought it

best to lay all my cards on the table. I emailed the priest, whom I’d never met: “I’d like to talk to you about having my daughter baptised, but I don’t want to be pressured to return to church life.” In the end, I decided, you know what – maybe I’ll always be a lousy Christian. Maybe I’ll never be as joyful and faithful and good as the “other Christians.” Or maybe deep down we’re all the same – wavering

Fools to perform a different kind of play Three-week run to constantly challenge theatre group ing on May 15. “Leading up to my performance, I’m thinking ‘What I am I going to do?’” Leger said. “There are a lot of things going through your mind when you will be reading something cold, as an actor there is an element of excitement and terror and the rest is left to the gods.” She added that it can also be really exciting. “The door is wide open, you are coming in with no pre-defined ideas and you are in that moment, in that space.”

EMC news - A new play performed by the Company of Fools is aimed to challenge its actors and entice audiences. The group is performing White Rabbit Red Rabbit -- a play outside of Shakespeare’s repertoire which is the troupe’s stock-in-trade -- at the Arts Court Library until May 25. Leading up to the three-week performance, the cast had not rehearsed, had no direction and does not know the script until they first take the stage in front of an audience. “We are excited about this unique opportunity,” said Al Connors, the group’s artistic director. “The Fools have always explored unique ways of creating and performing work and this provocative piece fits with our style as it is an interactive, playful, and thought-provoking piece of theatre.” Each performance will be like its first, as a different actor reads the script cold at each performance. The actors are not allowed to watch any of the other performances. Catriona Leger will be perform-

different shows, all speaking the same text.” Before and after each show, there is the opportunity for the audience to mingle with the actor and potentially other members of the theatre group. Written by Nassim Soleimanpour, the play explores travel in a different way - to explore a world from the perspective of an individual forbidden to travel. Soleimanpour wrote the play to travel the world when he couldn’t. The play asks the audience to participate and listen. “We expect some of our fans will be surprised. Although this isn’t our first departure from Shakespeare, they are so few and far between that it feels like a first,” Connors said.

Vélo fest partners with kidney foundation Charity hopes event will help raise awareness Michelle Nash

EMC news - A new partnership with a sporting event aims to raise much needed awareness and funds for the Kidney Foundation of Canada. Capital Vélo Fest bike festival will hit the streets on June 1-2 and this year the Kidney Foundation of Canada has partnered with the festival. Bruce Hill, senior development manager for the Eastern Ontario chapter said the foundation felt like a natural partnership. “We teach those who use our resources about healthy lifestyles, good nutrition, which is really important for people going through kidney failure or dialysis,” Hill said. “Partnering with Capital Vélo Fest for us is about sending a message about living this healthy lifestyle.” Hill said the event is meant to help out families and kidney patients in the Ottawa region. Bettina Iraci’s 12 year-old son, Dawson, have been named ambassadors for the event. When Dawson was born, he had underdeveloped kidneys and has undergone numerous surgeries, including a transplant when he was four, and now kidney failure. “Exercise is important for anyone to maintain a healthy lifestyle, but for kidney patients,

whether they are on dialysis, post-transplant or those that have been newly diagnosed with kidney disease it is very important as it promotes energy, makes for better sleep habits, and of course controls weight gain,” Iraci said. Iraci said both Dawson and herself are excited about the upcoming festival. “The Kidney Foundation is always promoting exercise and a healthy lifestyle and what a better way to get that than cycling with the whole family,” she said. “This is also a great opportunity for the community to be exposed to what the Kidney Foundation is all about and the wonderful things they do to help ease the burden of kidney disease that affect so many people in our community.” Aside from promoting healthy living, the foundation provides support for people who are in kidney failure, going through dialysis or kidney recipients in other ways, including financial support and hosting activities and fundraising events. The bicycle festival is a two-day event which promotes all things cycling in this city. With multiple events taking place over the weekend, the 2013 Capital Vélo Fest Tour La Nuit is a riding event along the Rideau Canal where participants can elect to raise funds for the foundation. Hill said the foundation is not stuck to a numbered amount. “It’s not about how much we can raise, so much as that we want to raise money for the cause,” Hill said.

The Bank of Canada unveils its new polymer $5 and $10 bills on April 30. The bank said the new notes have leading-edge security features to reduce the amount of counterfeiting.

New shiny, plastic $5 and $10 bills unveiled New notes to be more secure: Bank of Canada

EMC news - Canada’s latest new bank notes became out of this world when Commander of the International Space Station Chris Hadfield helped unveil the new bills. The new polymer $5 and $10 bills were revealed at the Bank of Canada on April 30. Images on the bills include the Canadarm2 and Dextre-robotics innovations used to build and maintain the Space Station on the $5 bill and an image of the Canadian train traveling around the Rocky Mountains on the $10 bill. Orbiting more than 350 kilometres above the Earth Hadfield showed off the new $5 bill. “I try to inspire young Canadians to aim high. This new $5 bill should do the same,” Hadfield said. “By giving prominence to Canadian achievements in space, this bank note reminds us that not even the sky is the limit.” The front of the $5 features a portrait of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Prime Minister of Canada from 1896 to 1911. Sir John A. Macdonald, who was Prime Minister of Canada from 1867-1873, and an image of Macdonald from the time of the rail-

way completion, is on the front of the note. This is the final two notes in the new polymer series, with the $20, $50 and $100 unveiled previously. Minister of Finance Jim Flaherty, Bank of Canada Governor Mark Carney and Paul G. Smith, Chairman of the Board at VIA Rail Canada joined Hadfield for the official unveiling. “Canadians can be very proud of their new polymer bank notes,” Flaherty said. “With today’s unveiling of the final two notes in the series, one can see not only the unique story that each of the five denominations tells, but the unifying theme that underlies them all - the profound courage, determination, and ingenuity of our nation and its people.” The Bank of Canada said the new notes feature a combination of transparency and holography, and is the most secure bank note series ever issued by the bank. The polymer series is also said to be more economical, with the notes able to last at least two and half times longer than the former cotton-based paper bank notes. Both notes will become in circulation in November 2013. R0012079025

EMC news - The city wants residents’ feedback on its proposal for dealing with wildlife conflicts within city limits, but West CarletonMarch Coun. Eli El-Chantiry thinks the issues just require common sense. The city has been picking away at a wildlife strategy since early 2010, when council ordered a review following a series of issues with coyotes. Since then, a number of moose have had to be destroyed and urban sprawl has introduced suburban homes to areas that have habitats for animals like wild turkeys. The strategy proposing a “balanced and humane approach” will be considered by the city’s agriculture and rural affairs committee at a yetto-be-determined date. The biggest thing missing from the discussion about managing wildlife in Ottawa is the responsibility residents must take in living alongside wildlife if they choose to reside in a rural or semi-rural area, El-Chantiry said. “You’re dwelling in an area that wildlife used to call their home. They still think it’s their home,” he said. The city’s draft wildlife strategy emphasizes that many human-wildlife conflicts can be prevented or solved by better understanding the dynamic. The West Carleton councillor said he gets frustrated when he hears stories about residents offering piles of feed in their yard to attract deer. Not only does that encourage animals to roam around inhabited areas and potentially cause danger, it makes them reliant on humans and unable to survive on their own. Most problems can be prevented by avoiding those types of activity, El-Chantiry said. “We don’t need to have a strategy,” he said. “But I am willing to learn if someone can come up with a bright idea.” Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson, who heads the agricultural and rural affairs committee and has served as the polticial leadership on the issue, did not return repeated phone calls. The Ontario Wildlife Coalition slammed Thompson in a press release on May 1. “In case anyone was under the illusion that the City of Ottawa was going to mirror other

modern cities and adopt a progressive approach to wildlife, that illusion came crashing down when Mayor Watson handed the strategy to Coun. Doug Thompson”, stated coalition member Anita Utas, a resident of Stittsville. Utas cites Thompson’s support of a coyote cull as a sign that Thompson’s leadership in the issue means the city is not willing to seek out “modern” and non-lethal approaches to dealing with wildlife. “If Coun. Thompson’s lethal approach to human/wildlife conflicts is any measure, then we are going to see an escalation of wild animals being killed in Ottawa,” coalition and Animal Alliance of Canada spokeswoman Liz White stated in the press release. The city’s role is quite limited when it comes to dealing with conflicts between people and animals. Most of that responsibility is supposed to lay with the provincial Ministry of Natural Resources. But that department has been neutered over time by incremental budget cuts, El-Chantiry said – leaving the city to pick up the slack. “In the absence of the MNR doing their job, we are trying to be nice (and) pick up the slack,” he said. At this point, police officers are responding to calls more often than ministry staff, which is why there might be a need for a city wildlife strategy, El-Chantiry said. Another issue to consider is that Ottawa is a “hot spot” for species at risk, according to the draft strategy, with as many as 52 species at risk known or suspected to make their habitat here. Twenty nine of those species are protected as threatened or endangered species under the provincial Endangered Species Act. The strategy suggests the city is missing opportunities to promote its natural character. “How many residents of Ottawa know that moose live within a 15-minute drive of Ottawa city hall, or that Lac Deschênes is recognized as a globally significant bird area, or that 52 species at risk can be found within the city’s boundaries?” the draft strategy reads. “How many of Ottawa’s visitors or potential visitors know that they can paddle past turtles and herons on the shores of the idyllic Mississippi River or the Morris Island Conservation Area, fish for muskellunge within walking distance of Parliament Hill...”

Hunks hammer out $13,500 for cancer Emma Jackson

A Prosperous and Fair Ontario Dear friends, Last week, Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new government introduced the 2013 Ontario Budget, A Prosperous and Fair Ontario. This Budget proposes smart investments that will strengthen the economy, create jobs and make life more affordable for Ottawa families. Our plan is based on the strongest public consultations ever held for an Ontario Budget. Here in Ottawa West-Nepean, close to 10,000 residents joined me for a pre-budget consultation held through a live, interactive telephone town hall. The message was clear: our community wants a balanced approach to eliminate the deficit, while creating jobs and investing in quality services.

EMC news - Things were heating up at the annual Hunks with Hammers event on April 13, as local hunks helped raise $13,500 for cancer research. That takes the eventâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sixyear total over $90,000, said organizer Patti-Anne Scrivens. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was more than we expected,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first year we raised the most, but with the economy ($13,500) is very good, I believe.â&#x20AC;? The sixth annual ladiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; night out was held at the Greely Community Centre on April 13. The dinner and auction fund-

raiser in support of the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation offers a night of wining, dining, shopping and dancing. The best part, of course, is being served by some of the best looking hunks in Ottawa - mainly sourced from Fire Station 91 in Metcalfe and volunteer firefighters from Greely, Manotick, Metcalfe and Osgoode. Scrivens began organizing the event in 2007 when Metcalfe resident and tradesman Peter Wichers was diagnosed with terminal cancer at age 49. Since Wichers was a tradesman â&#x20AC;&#x201C; owner of The Door Company now owned by event

volunteer Greg Bell â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they began the Hunks With Hammers tradition. Wichers helped the first year, but did not survive his battle with cancer for the following year. Now his three children play a major role in planning the event, and his daughter Alyssa wrote a dedication for her father as part of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event program. Alyssa was eight when her father died, and told the crowd that she wishes her father could see her grow up and hit milestones like graduating university and meeting her future husband. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is not possible in person, but I know he is here now

and will be on all of those occasions, and always, in spirit,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fundraisers like this one help raise much-needed money to help patients like my Dad as they go through treatment and to help find a cure for his and all types of cancer.â&#x20AC;? Auction items up for grabs this year included dinner with Nepean-Carleton MP Pierre Poilievre, a new garage door, and concert tickets for Justin Bieber, Fleetwood Mac, New Kids on the Block and the Eagles. Door prizes included $1,000 worth of groceries and $500 to Loews.

Reaching new heights

A Fair and Prosperous Ontario does exactly that. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re transforming health care so that more people will quickly receive the care they need, where they need it. 46,000 more Ontario seniors will receive home health care, and we will strengthen job protection for those who need to take time off work to care for family members.

After the toughest Recession in 80 years, we have to continue tackling youth unemployment. Our $295 million Youth Jobs Strategy will create 30,000 job opportunities for youth. To improve transit and revitalize our infrastructure, we are investing $35 billion in infrastructure over three years. That includes a record $600 million commitment to Ottawa lightrail transit.

Under the 2013 Budget, life will become more affordable for Ottawa families with an average 15% reduction in auto insurance rates. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m also pleased to report that Ontario is also well ahead of our deficit reduction targets. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on track to completely eliminate the deficit by 2017-18. Much of that success is thanks to wage deals reached with our hard-working public servants. We achieved an overall public sector wage increase of just 0.1 per cent -- a de facto wage freeze. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s compared to increases of close to 2% in the private sector and federal public service.

Flooding along Ottawa not enough to disrupt weekend activities Bay Ward councillor hints at action on stalled Britannia Flood Control plan Steph Willems

EMC news - After a hardfought struggle to get through a persistent winter, Ottawans took to the outdoors in droves this past weekend, soaking up the sunshine and temperatures exceeding 20 C. However, along the Ottawa River the ground was having trouble soaking up high water that spilled over the banks in several places. Several sections of the Ottawa River pathway were flooded between Tunney’s Pasture and the Champlain Bridge, causing cyclists and runners to portage along the parkway embankment. In low-lying Britannia Village, flood gates were up while parts of Britannia Park were under water near the Ron Kolbus Centre. Water levels along the Ottawa River started rising dramatically on April 20 as spring runoff from tributaries further to the north began filling Lac Deschenes. Rainfall in the area compounded the problem. After three unusually mild winters, this year’s snow and

cold temperatures provided a reminder to property owners that weather -- and water levels -- can fluctuate greatly. Britannia Village put its current flood defences in place following a 1979 flood that saw water levels peak at 60.26 metres (above sea level). The berms and sea wall installed in 1981 can protect against water levels of 60.4 metres. This spring saw two water level peaks on the lower Ottawa – on April 24 the level rose to 59.73 metres, according to the Environment Canada depth gauge in Britannia Bay, followed by a rebound to a similar height on April 29. The average spring flood at Britannia is 58.8 metres. In advance of the high water mark, the Ottawa River Regulation and Planning Board issued a forecast that predicted minor flooding and continued high water levels through this week. Bruce Reid, and engineer working for the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority, put this year’s water levels into perspective by stating 24 out of the last 89 years saw water levels rise to similar levels.


In low-lying Britannia Village, flood gates were up while parts of Britannia Park were under water near the Ron Kolbus Centre. Water levels along the Ottawa River started rising dramatically on April 20 as spring runoff from tributaries further to the north began filling Lac Deschenes. Records at Britannia go back to 1916. “The levels reached in 1979 haven’t been reached again,” he stated. “The closest we’ve come since then is 59.99 metres was reached in 1985.” The spring of 2002 and 2008 also saw water levels at or higher than those being experienced this year. FLOOD CONTROL PROJECT BACK ON TRACK?

While Britannia’s flood defences -- in some cases bolstered by private property owners -- have held back water levels, several residents have called for a comprehensive approach guaranteed to stop a one-in-100-year flood. The authority lists a 1:100 year flood in Britannia as reaching 60.8 metres. Protection from such an event is more than just worry about material loss, as protection would dictate what homeowners could

build on their properties. “As a matter of provincial policy we use the 1:100 year event as the thing they’re protected against,” said Reid, referring to all properties near flood plains in the province. In 2007, the city partnered with the authority to develop and approve a planning and design process aimed at increasing protection to Britannia Village properties. The Britannia Village Flood Control Project would have met the 1:100 flood stage while adding another 30 centimetres of protection over that level (totaling 61.1 metres). The project came in overbudget in 2010 and despite working groups meeting until early 2011, the project had to be shelved until the extra funds were made up. Last week came tentative news that an announcement could be looming on new funding for the project. Bay Coun. Mark Taylor told the Ottawa West News that talks have been occurring between the city and the provincial government that will likely lead to a funding announcement sooner rather than

later. Until the beginning of this year, Ottawa West-Nepean MPP Bob Chiarelli served as Minister of Infrastructure, and remains a strong advocate for this project, he said. “Recently the province of Ontario came forward to say they were willing to contribute money to the project,” said Taylor. “We’ve been exchanging back-and-forth on that… Hopefully we get to the point where we have a workable project.” The design that was explored during the project’s active phases was a comprehensive one aimed at combining aesthetics with effectiveness, Reid explained. “If an investment is made, it will be a collection of (measures) that will work as a system,” he explained. Taylor called the solution an “elegant” one that he hopes can be implemented. “If the provincial funding comes through, and I suspect it likely will, we will be in a space where we can move forward on this,” said Taylor. “But, we’re not at a point yet where we can make an announcement.”

A funny thing happens when you tell kids they matter. They believe you. An alarming 40,000 kids drop out of high school every year. Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada are committed to changing that. They provide a safe and supportive place where kids can develop confidence and life skills. They offer programs like Rogers Raising the Grade to help kids with their studies. The Club is a place where kids can drop in, so they’re less likely to drop out. TM

Mother Teresa Catholic High School donates blood Canadian Blood Services visits Mother Teresa Catholic High School and achieves its goal of 32 units Torianna McGuire Mother Teresa Catholic High School

EMC news - The Blood Donor Clinic took place in the gymnasium April 19, where the Canadian Blood Services had their hopes set for receiving a minimum of 32 units of blood from students. Approximately 60 students registered to give donations. Due to ineligibility, only 32 of those completed their donations. Basic requirements state that you are not eligible to donate if you have given blood within 56 days, if you have received a tattoo or body piercing within six months prior, if you

have had a dental filling or cleaning within one day of the clinic or within three days for extractions or root canal. you are not eligible to give blood if you are an insulin dependent diabetic, or if you have had mono within the last six months. You are you eligible if you have allergies, even if you are taking medication. Some patients may feel weak or even faint during and after the donation. Mother Teresa Catholic High School provided the students with pizza, which led to less fainting than the year before. Despite the known side effects and the actual donation process, students considered the value of donation to patients who needed blood, and how comforting it would be for them to know that people went out of their way to help them. Canadian Blood Services had reached their hopes of receiving a minimum of 32 units of blood from the Mother Teresa students. Although only half of the original amount of students were eligible to give, the thought of all sixty students willing to donate made a difference.

EMC news - In October, over a hundred of Canada’s best women’s Australian Rules Football players will be in the nation’s capital to fight for the national championship title. The Ottawa Swans Australian Football Club is excited to announce the club has won the bid to host the 2013 Women’s Canadian National Championships Oct. 11 to 13. Australian Rules Football, also known as AFL or footy, is played widely in Australia through professional and recreational leagues. Internationally, especially on the women’s side, the sport has been rapidly growing. “To say the team is excited is an understatement,” said Swans captain Lisa Dalla Rosa. “Knowing that this October we will be playing on our field, with our club, sponsors and city cheering us on will be great motivation not only for the tournament but for the up-coming season as well. We cannot wait to host players from across Canada. This is fantastic for women’s footy in the capital.” The Ottawa Swans Australian Football Club was formed in 2006 by a group of Australian expats, and became a member of the Ontario AFL and AFL Canada in 2007. The club has adopted the same name as the professional AFL club the Sydney Swans – who won the 2012 Grand Final, the AFL’s Stanley Cup. Both women’s and men’s teams play in the Ontario AFL, playing at home at the Rideau Carleton Raceway and travelling to Toronto to face com-

Two retail spaces and a new bank location are being proposed for a currently vacant site at the Britannia Plaza. The area was razed after a February 2009 fire that destroyed a restaurant, and several other stores.

Steph Willems

EMC news - Four years after a devastating fire, the Britannia Plaza might be getting new retail tenants. A site plan control proposal recently submitted to the city would fill the gap the fire left in the 1495 Richmond Rd. plaza. Two retail stores and a bank with drive-through capacity are being proposed for the eastern section of the plazaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upper level. Currently a Farm Boy and the Royal Britannia Pub occupy most of the upper level space. Because the site is already zoned for retail uses, only a site plan control needed to be submitted. The applicant, Colonnade Development, intends to add 14 parking spaces to the plaza to accommodate customers and plans to add landscaping in the area near the bank. The new parking area would occupy part of the footprint of the former Rockinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Johnnyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s restaurant. That restaurant was the subject of an arson blaze set in the early morning hours of Feb. 6, 2009, which also destroyed a pawn shop and a bike

store. In the following years, residents have wondered if the section of the plaza razed after the fire would be rebuilt. The comment period for the site planâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s file ends May 21, and a decision on the application is expected to be rendered by a manager within the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planning and growth management department on June 22.

GERRY CLOUTIER at MYERS HYUNDAI: Proud to Lead the Bellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Corners #1 Hyundai Team in Canada by Brian Turner

With over 25 years experience in putting people in the right auto, Gerry Cloutier is proud to announce he has joined the Myers Hyundai Team in Bells Corners. As general manager, Gerryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job at one of Hyundaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s busiest retailers might seem on the surface to be a challenging task, but according to him, his super-crew of department managers and staff makes for smooth days. In fact this crew has won the Hyundai President Award of Merit for the last 4 years. Getting customers introduced to Myers Hyundai is a breeze thanks to a very accessible location just off the 417 at Moodie, making it a quick trip from almost any area of the greater Ottawa/Gatineau area. Gerry knows from his years of experience that most Hyundai shoppers arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t looking for a long drawn-out process when purchasing or leasing a new or pre-owned vehicle. Gerry is happy to report that at Myers Hyundai, next-day deliveries on in-stock units are the rule, not the exception. In fact, their prep and detail teams have earned Myers Hyundai the title of #1 Pre-owned Retailer in Canada. Myers buyers donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the run-around thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unfortunately all too common at large urban retailers. From greeting to delivery, Myers staff have one goal in common; making it easy, not difficult to get the right vehicle at the right price with terms that fit every budget. But smooth operations donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop at sales and leasing. Gerry notes that the service team consistently delivers the highest quality in the region according to customer surveys and keeps the longest shop hours so their customers donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to wait days or weeks for an appointment. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really no big secret to Myers Hyundaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success. Gerry has built his career and reputation on treating customers and employees alike in a fair and equitable manner. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proud that every sales consultant, service advisor and manager at Myers does the same. This is the philosophy that Myers was built on starting with their first store in Ottawa in 1942. Like Myers, Hyundai has grown and now boasts a successful award winning product line that can satisfy every consumer from those looking for an economical entry-level sedan all the way up to the ultimate in personal luxury vehicles: Genesis and Equus. For every family size and every budget, Gerry and his team can make it work. I should know: Gerryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been putting vehicles in my driveway for years. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy to recommend him to anyone looking for a straight deal without any games from someone who respects their time and business. R0012077670

Golf tournament raises funds for Roger’s House Jessica Cunha

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.

EMC news - Amy and Andrew Beaton’s son was born with PallisterKillian 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



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. 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

“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 honour of Roger Neilson, 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 Ministries 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 sup-

ports 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 noon-time 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.

Grateful for CHEOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Support Jonathan was diagnosed with epilepsy, a complex neurological condition. Although some people with epilepsy have mild symptoms, others like     

       him unconscious. After the initial excitement that his seizures were under control thanks to medications commonly used to treat epilepsy, they returned with a vengeance. In fact during one such episode his parents had to call 911 to ensure their son would make it to CHEO as quickly as possible because he was struggling to breathe.

By Isabelle Mailloux Pulkinghorn

Jonathan Puerto was born healthy but a few weeks later began having seizures after he woke up from his naps. Worried, his parents Elizabeth Pineda and Jose Eduardo Puerto took him to their pediatrician who referred them to CHEO. Under the trusted care of Dr. Sharon Whiting, a pediatric neurologist, Jonathan underwent testing to identify the cause of the severe seizures he experienced on a daily basis, some of which left him         Tests revealed a lesion on the front left side of his brain, the result of a stroke he had likely suffered at birth. Then at six months of age, following additional testing to eliminate other conditions,

To make things worse, when Jonathan was six years old, he had a severe allergic reaction to the standard seizure drug that paramedics carry and went into anaphylactic shock.CHEO specialists were able to help him and to search for another medication to control his seizures.Dr. Whiting                 Ottawa Public Health to lobby for Jonathan. They                        now carries his new medication with him at all times to ensure paramedics can access it when he needs to be transported to CHEO. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is the CHEO difference. Our sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doctor took the time to not only identify the best medicine for him, but she made calls herself to various agencies to ensure theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d use this new medication to keep our son safe,â&#x20AC;? explains Elizabeth, who shudders as she recalls a particularly severe seizure that lasted 24 hours. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Without that care plan, Jonathanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life would be at risk.â&#x20AC;?

Further tests revealed that Jonathan also suffers from cerebral palsy, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s since been diagnosed as having autism.Despite those additional challenges, Jonathan is thriving. He speaks three languages, and is in a special needs grade four class where he loves working on the computer, playing with trucks and being with his friends. One role he particularly enjoys is that of older brother to his 18 month old sibling David. Ultimately, the goal is for Jonathan to live his best life, seizure-free and safe. For now, there has been some progress: though he still has occasional seizures they only last 10 minutes or less, as opposed to hours at a timeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and their frequency decreased from daily episodes to once every two weeks.If Jonathanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seizures were to come back at a higher frequency, the next step would be brain surgery but his parents are hopeful that he can avoid thatâ&#x20AC;Ś at least for a while. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jonathan is a good boy and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so handsome,â&#x20AC;? coos Elizabeth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My husband and I are very proud of him because despite all his health issues he remains a positive little boy who is very loving and caring. Every morning he wakes up with a smile on his face. We are lucky to have him and his brother David.â&#x20AC;? Jonathan will be ten years old in June.With the help of his loving family, their friends and the expert CHEO staff, this young boy can trust that he is in good hands and that he will be well cared for with a treatment plan tailor-made to his needs.And this is something the Puerto family is truly grateful for.

Soldiers group looking for city’s homeless veterans Soldiers Helping Soldiers visit Ottawa Mission and Shepherds of Good Hope shelters

EMC news - When retired Navy captain Mark Eldridge met a number of homeless people downtown during a fundraiser last fall, he was surprised to learn he was looking into the eyes of his fellow brothersin-arms. Last October, the Blackburn Hamlet resident and a group of other servicemen and women were in downtown Ottawa running a fundraiser for Soldier On, a group that supports ill and injured Canadian Forces members to be active in sport and recreational activities. “That bothered us tremendously, that in the course of a few hours, we were engaged by six folks who are living on the street,” Eldridge said. In a city with multiple layers of government and lots of resources, “How the hell does this happen?” Eldridge asked. A group of about a dozen people who were involved with the fundraiser realized there was a different opportunity for them to help their brothers-in-arms. Since January, the group has grown to around 40 members who have visited the Ottawa Mission and Shepherds of Good Hope shelters to serve lunch on two occasions. Soldiers Helping Soldiers members identify themselves as Canadian Forces through markings on their aprons and ball caps. Eldridge is hoping this subtle action will open a door for veterans living on the margins. Offering a sense of belonging and an opportunity to reconnect with a community they identify with can be a way in. It’s the first step in guiding them along the path to accessing the right services that are going to make a difference for them, Eldridge said. “It’s just a way of bringing them back,” he said. There is no way to know how many homeless people in Ottawa are former Canadian Forces members,

said Dave Gordon, executive director of the Ontario command of the Royal Canadian Legion. “We often get the question, ‘How many homeless veterans are there in Canada?’” Gordon said. “I always say, how many snowflakes fell in the last snowstorm? I have no idea.” Eldridge said he was surprised that any veterans identified themselves during Soldier’s Helping Soliders’ first two shelter visits. He said there is no way to estimate the scope of the issue in Ottawa, but he guessed there may be in the neighbourhood of 100 homeless veterans in the city. The issues they face and the conditions that led to them ending up on the streets are the same as the issues faced by any person who becomes homeless, Eldridge said. “This story doesn’t wear a uniform,” he said. “It’s not about their military service.” Addiction is an issue and alcohol abuse is easy to fall into when there are few distractions on a military base, Eldridge said. But addiction is a common thread for many people who become homeless, he said. “I doubt very much that the circumstances in the military are very different than anywhere else,” he said. A lack of transferable job skills can lead to a downward spiral for anyone, Eldridge said. When their career experience amounts to “combat,” it makes sense that some veterans can’t find work after they complete their service. By the time they reach that stage, they’ve completely forgotten the information they received – and thought they would never need – while they were in the military, Eldridge said. It’s something Eldridge can connect with. “When you see your brothers-inarms on the street … you have to do something about it,” he said. “The underlying issue is that agencies aren’t asking the question,” Eldridge said.


Retired Royal Canadian Navy captain and Blackburn Hamlet resident Mark Eldridge has created a group called Soldiers Helping Soldiers after a chance meeting with homeless veterans last fall. After his talk, Eldridge was flooded with questions from people representing service providers who admitted they never thought to ask if someone served in the Canadian Forces. But all of them said it’s a practice they’d now adopt. At the networking event, Eldridge

was shocked at how many organizations are available to assist veterans and others who are living on the streets. “I’ve got a dozen business cards from organizations I’ve never heard of before and another dozen from organizations I’ve heard of but didn’t

have a connection.” Continuing to build that network is a priority, as is connecting with veterans in need. People looking for a way to connect a homeless or atrisk veteran with the proper services can email Eldridge at markeldridge_ R0012079939

Storm chaser shares stories at Centrepointe

EMC news - In just a few years, George Kourounis has filed away a lifetime of “This one time…” stories. The Gatineau-raised, storm-chasing host of the Outdoor Life Network’s Angry Planet selected a few of his best tales, photos and videos to entertain audiences at Centrepointe Theatre on April 24. A lifelong fan of nature and science, Kourounis’s growing fascination with Earth’s climatic and meteorological extremes led him away from a job he liked into one he loved. The turning, point, he explained, was a close encounter with a tornado while on a storm-chasing vacation in Oklahoma in 1998. Rather than throwing cold water on his storm-chasing fantasies, “it piqued my interest even more,” said Kourounis. Since that day, his quest has taken him to 35 countries, to the core of 17 hurricanes – including Hurricane Katrina in 2005 – and even into the mouth of an erupting volcano. But there’s nowhere else he’d rather be. “I decided years ago the purpose

of my life was to track down the most extreme weather and places and share them with the world,” said Kourounis. “This passion has given me the opportunity to visit places people would never want to go to… or would love to go to, but don’t have the means.” Kourounis’s presentation at Centrepointe is part of the Royal Canadian Geographic Society’s spring speakers series, designed to help Canadians gain a greater appreciation for the natural environment and its fragility. The lobby of the theatre showcased photographs taken by Mike Beedell that chronicled his lifelong interest in polar bears. In keeping with Angry Planet’s energetic, multi-media-based approach, Kourounis’s presentation took his audience on an exhilarating and often humorous journey, while instilling knowledge of the science behind the subjects of his show. Despite not having broken a single bone in his pursuit of the earth’s extremes, there have been close calls – lava bombs thrown up by an erupting volcano, for example – though the most perilous situation Kourounis found himself in was in a darkened African cave frequented by elephants


Stormchaser and host of OLN’s ‘Angry Planet’ George Kourounis shares some workplace stories to a Centrepointe Theatre audience on April 24. and thousands of bats known to carry a deadly, Ebola-type virus. After being bit by a bat following a lapse in judgment, Kourounis spent an agonizing week-and-a-half waiting to see if he would fall victim to the virus, which liquefies the body’s internal organs.

“It was the scariest time of my life, and it didn’t pass in a flash -- it lingered,” recalled Kourounis. Since transitioning into his life as an adventurer, Kourounis has gotten married (naturally, the wedding was held on top of a volcano) and can reflect on the path that brought him to

this point. He dispensed some friendly advice to the audience. “If you want something you’ve never had, you have to do something you’ve never done before,” said Kourounis. “That’s the essence of adventure: getting out of your comfort zone, and loving it.”

Renowned conductor brings concert band back from brink Derek Dunn

EMC news – He played in Frank Sinatra’s orchestra and conducted Tony Bennett’s band, played for the powerful and famous, had a role in momentous national and world events, and now he welcomes musicians to join his band. The Valley Concert Band’s optimal number of participants is 35. It has 31. The percussion section could use one or two more – tenor sax player or two would be nice. Conductor Keith Estabrooks – a big reason why musicians are willing to travel from as far away as Orleans to practice under him – isn’t picky about who joins. “I refuse nobody. We’re looking for all instruments,” said the Woodlawn resident who recently did a show with Josh Groban. “It’s a good chance to come out and play. After high school’s done is not the end of world. There’s still a place to play.” The band practices Thursday evenings at the legion in Arnprior. Ages are everywhere from 16 to folks in their 70s, and come from communities such as Almonte, Pakenham, Constance Bay, Ottawa, Renfrew and Pembroke. Unlike most community bands, there

are no dues to join, but the band plays free concerts a few times a year for veterans, and has a series of concerts in April and May before breaking for summer. Many are at nursing homes and church halls in Renfrew county and Mississippi Mills. It also has recorded five albums under the baton of its current director of music. The Valley Concert Band has a library of some 900 musical scores worth some $90,000 collected since forming in 1987. Estabrooks often mixes contemporary and classic music, challenging the band but not reaching so far over their heads as to lose the quality during performances. It is the kind of knowledge the French horn player has gained over a lifetime in music. Before taking over the band in the mid 1990s when it was down to three members, Estabrooks was conductor of the RCMP Musical Ride Band playing for the rich and famous around the world. A large photo album shows him with boxing great Muhammad Ali, singer Crystal Gayle, folk legend Gordon Lightfoot, Bob McGrath who for many years was on Sesame Street, television actor Susan Saint James among others. He’s backed up Anne Murray and the recently deceased


A former RCMP band conductor, Keith Estabrooks, left, has played for and with some of the world’s most iconic singers. But his favourite musician also happens to be his son, Mike. The Valley Concert Band is welcoming new members at the moment. There are no fees and practices are held in Arnprior. Rita McNeil. He even played for Diana, Princess of Wales on the ill-fated Queen of the North before she died in a car accident and the boat sank off the B.C. coastline in 2006. He has travelled around the world playing music, from Venezuela to Italy, and northern Canada to Australia. He even toured with former prime minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau. “(Current Liberal leader) Justin Trudeau was just a child when we were in Mexico,” Estabrooks recalls, saying the RCMP band was great fun un-

til it fell victim to budget cuts in 1993. However, he stayed on as an officer and was entrusted with guarding the U.S. ambassador for the duration of the two Gulf wars, along with standing on the front lines during the Oka crisis. A trained musician sauntering about with a machine gun? The transferable skills are few and far between. “Back then you had to train as an officer if you wanted in the band. So I just stayed on as an officer afterward,” Estabrooks said.

Among his biggest fans is Estabrooks’ son, Mike. The two are union members of the American Federation of Musicians, with the younger also a member of Souper Jazz, Dixieland band that has raised over $500,000 for soup kitchens in Ottawa. “My family raised me to think community service is a good thing, so that’s why I’m doing it,” Mike said. “With a community group like the Valley Concert Band you don’t have to be great to be a part of it. People go there to have a good time and learn from each

other. And it’s a good thing to do for the community, playing for the vets and that.” Mike is a fourth-generation musician in the family, photos of his grandfather and great grandfather in their bands hang in the home studio. He grew up assuming every parent passed on the gift of music to their kids, but has since realized how fortunate he was. As he stands over a sousaphone (a giant brass instrument related to the tuba), a piece he is restoring by hand, he has praise for Estabrooks as a musician and a father. “My dad knows what he’s doing. That’s why people are willing to drive from two hours away to be in the band,” Mike said. “I used to take it for granted growing up. But now I know how lucky I am to grow up with music in my family. Too many people are missing out on how much music affects your life.” CHARITY CONCERT

Priority schools aim to boost attendance

Want Innovation? Offer a Prize It is easy to turn public money into research. But the question should be, â&#x20AC;&#x153;How do we turn research into results?â&#x20AC;? Who better to ask than Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, and Google co-founder, Sergey Brin? They invented and popularized technologies that serve billions of people and have created mind-boggling wealth. Last month, Zuckerberg and Brin inaugurated the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciencesâ&#x20AC;? with the purpose of recognizing â&#x20AC;&#x153;excellence in research aimed at curing intractable diseases and extending human life.â&#x20AC;? Rather than simply pumping all the money into research institutions, Zuckerberg and Brin are paying for results. History proves they are onto something. Napoleon Bonaparte offered a cash prize for new ways of preserving food, knowing that his â&#x20AC;&#x153;army marched on its stomachâ&#x20AC;?. So Nicolas Francois Appert invented canned foods, and used the reward of 12,000 francs to open a commercial cannery, which operated for over a century. Between 1839 and 1939, the Royal Agricultural Society of England offered cash prizes at annual competitions. A Harvard Business School and Norwegian School of Economics joint study showed â&#x20AC;&#x153;large effects of the prizes on competitive entryâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;an impact of the prizes on the quality of contemporaneous patentsâ&#x20AC;?. The contests led to new milking machines, cream separators, cultivators, light portable motors and more than 15,000 other innovations that made food more plentiful and farming less burdensome. The private sector is sponsoring prizes for more than philanthropy. A few years back, NetďŹ&#x201A;ix crowdsourced its R&D with a $1 million prize for a new system of algorithms to recommend ďŹ lms. According to The Economist, 55,000 people competed and the winning team was a group of seven who had worked together via the internet and met in person for the ďŹ rst time when they retrieved their prize. Governments are catching on to the power of prizes. Under the America Competes Act, 45 U.S. government agencies have offered over 200 prizes to incentivize problem solving. The Presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OfďŹ ce of Science and Technology Policy says prizes are now a â&#x20AC;&#x153;standard tool in every Federal agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s toolboxâ&#x20AC;?. And this January, the New York City Schools Chancellor announced a $104,000 prize for the best app, video game or other technology to help teenagers conquer math. Here in Canada, the House of Commons Transport Committee unanimously made the cost-neutral recommendation for government to â&#x20AC;&#x153;redirect a portion of its existing research and innovation budget away from institutions and towards substantial prize money for innovations which meet welldeďŹ ned public goals.â&#x20AC;? With private sector promotional sponsors picking up the tab, governments could hold massive science fairs to unveil the winners. The prestige and publicity would create further incentive to compete and win. As the Lindbergh ďŹ&#x201A;ight and the Royal Agricultural Society prizes prove, the prestige and publicity of competitions can motivate the innovators of today and inspire those of tomorrow.

EMC community - Four of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s urban schools are using innovative programs to increase attendance and bridge language gaps. Samuel-Genest Catholic, Notre Dame High, Rideau High and Ridgemont High schools are deďŹ ned as high priority, receiving extra funding for programs like a breakfast club and after-school programming. The funding is meant to improve the quality of education in and out of the classroom â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from forging better links with parents to improve attendance, to increasing the community police ofďŹ cerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presence in the school to reduce crime and make students more comfortable with police. Representatives from the four schools came together on April 25 to discuss some of the challenges they face and solutions they deal with on a dayto-day basis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we think of success, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot different at our schools,â&#x20AC;? said Geordie Walker, east Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rideau High School principal. Walker said that many students face signiďŹ cant challenges or roadblocks to completing their high school education, so for Rideau, helping a student ďŹ nding a path that works for them constitutes success. The talk was part of Crime Prevention Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s speaker series, titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pursing student success in urban schools.â&#x20AC;? Bonnie Campbell, principal at Notre Dame in west Ottawa spoke about equalization methods the school uses to put all their students on a level playing ďŹ eld. It includes an after school program, which includes bus transportation home, where tutors can help students with their homework, and English as a second language (ESL) students with their English skills. The program also partners with Dovercourt Recreation Centre to put on swimming, sports and activities â&#x20AC;&#x201C; such as

sewing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with the students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very easy (for Dovercourt) to serve families in Westboro, but harder to serve those several kilometres west,â&#x20AC;? Campbell said. She added that some of the new Canadian students havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had access to swimming lessons before, and take part in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Swim to Surviveâ&#x20AC;? program. Argel Jon Javier, a Grade 11 honours student at Notre Dame, said he started coming to the program when he was in Grade 7, new to Canada and needing English help. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I recently gave a presentation to new students,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This would not have happened without that support. It helped me with English and social blending.â&#x20AC;? Walker and Ridgemont principal Richard King, who presented together, said attendance is a real problem for the schools. In Ontario, students legally have to attend secondary school. The schools are faced with the challenges of up to 45 languages spoken at the school, and not all parents being able to communicate with teachers and school administration without a translator. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to help create situations where our students can see themselves successful,â&#x20AC;? Walker said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we look at it through the lens that it is possible, it can happen.â&#x20AC;? He said that for many Rideau students, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ nding an alternate path to success â&#x20AC;&#x201C; like ďŹ nding outside classes or co-op positions that can get students closer to graduation. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve also adopted the mentality of turning both Rideau and Ridgemont into community hubs, bringing services like community police ofďŹ cers, drug and alcohol counsellors and social workers into the school. The hope is that these relationships will continue after high school, and students can encourage others in their community to access the same services. King said that he has be-

Mahamud Elmi, community police officer at Ridgemont High School, speaks at the Crime Prevention Ottawa speaker series on priority schools in Ottawa. come a big believer in the restorative justice practice, an adapted punishment plan that is meant to address the speciďŹ c incident and problem instead of issuing a blanket punishment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; like a suspension. He said he became a convert several years ago, after two students were suspended for ďŹ ve days for ďŹ ghting. Their ďŹ rst day back at school, they got in another ďŹ ght. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But this one was very bloody. The ďŹ ve day suspension had no impact,â&#x20AC;? King said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They had time to let their feelings fester.â&#x20AC;? Ridgemont, in south Ottawa, now has reduced the number of serious incidents and issued suspensions. The community police ofďŹ cer for Ridgemont â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a graduate himself â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is there several times a week, and participates in athletic programs with students. Const. Mahamud Elmi said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had students that wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have normally felt comfortable talking to police approach him for help in problems. The problems faced by some of the students in priority schools are often quite serious, said Lee Blue, the full time social worker at Rideau. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gone are the days of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;my boyfriend broke up with me and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m upset,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These

students deal with some very adult issues. Rideau has implemented special parent nights for different communities, especially those with language barriers, to use translators. Next year, the school is going to take a new approach to communication with parents, beyond sending a letter home when a studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attendance is poor. Some families frequently change address, and parents may not understand the English letter â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if they even get it. The school wants to develop a system to send teachers, support stuff and translators if needed to speak with families on individual basis. The programs have helped the schools to begin to bridge gaps, but there is still work to be done. Attendence in priority schools is signiďŹ cantly lower, and attitudes often shift to attaining 51 per cent â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the bare minimum to pass a high school class. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some students think, 51 per cent gets a credit, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re okay with that,â&#x20AC;? Walker said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to raise that bar.â&#x20AC;? The speaker series was put on by Crime Prevention Ottawa. For more information, visit



Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s keep our eyes on that prize and make Canada an innovation nation.

Councillors ditch unpopular Little Italy mews Laura Mueller

EMC news - Narrow road passageways won’t be part of an upcoming plan to guide the evolution of Little Italy. City staff wanted to keep the option of “access mews” – narrow roads at the end of dead-end streets to provide extra mobility – on the table, but Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess lead a successful charge to scrap the mews idea. The mayor and mainly urban councillors were on the losing side of a 12-11 vote to scrap the mews concept during the April 24 city council meeting. Bloess said it was clear at planning committee that both community members and developers who spoke to the planning committee on the issue rejected the idea of mews. Bloess, who used to live in the Little Italy area, asked how the mews idea got “influence” that kept it in the plan. One of those proponents, according to planning committee chairman Coun. Peter Hume, is developer Taggart, which has a nine-storey building proposed for the area. He said Bloess’s motion was “absolutely” the result of lobbying. “What I think Taggart believe is if you got rid the mews, city staff would support nine storeys,” Hume said. “I’m not sure that’s the case.” City planners said it would be smarter to keep the option open as

they use the Preston-Carling district plan – which was approved – to draft a full community design plan for a broader area. A series of north-south private mews east of the O-Train tracks would allow for medium-profile development in those areas, according to a report from city staff. “In the end, we may not be recommending it, but we felt it would be a good idea to keep it in the plan at this point,” said city planning general manager John Moser. Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes, who represents the area, agreed with staff that it was not the time to eliminate the option of mews. “I think that’s essential that we defer that discussion about the issue of the mews and the traffic bridges over the train tracks,” she said. Planning committee chairman Coun. Peter Hume agreed. He didn’t want council to make a decision against staff advice because it might make it impossible for the city to defend if it was appealed to the Ontario Municipal Board. When the planning committee considered the matter during a March 26 meeting, Alan Cohen, a prominent planning lawyer working on behalf of Taggart Group, argued that a mews was not desirable in an area where Taggart wants to build an 18storey building on Norman Street. Cohen said his client’s traffic studies show that a mews wouldn’t be necessary to handle the traffic the proposed building would create, so

the developer supports the city putting that part of the report aside to study further. Council will reconsider the decision to ditch the mews idea during its

May 8 meeting. Rideau-Rockcliffe Coun. Peter Clark called for the reconsideration due to the close vote. The district plan for the PrestonCarling area will form the basis for a

community design plan and secondary plan that will follow later this year. With files from Alex Boutilier, Metro News.


Nature smiled on the thousands of participants of the annual Walk for MS fundraiser on April 28. Teams of walkers, whole families, people dressed as movie characters and even pets gathered at the Jean Talon Building at Tunney’s Pasture before setting off on the walk, for which the John A. Macdonald Parkway was closed to traffic. The Walk for MS is an initiative of the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada. Nepean-Barrhaven News EMC - Thursday, May 9, 2013

Diane Hutton and Peter McKennirey, both past presidents at the Nepean Rotary Club, help clean up Hunt Club Road between Greenbank and Cedarview Roads on April 27. The annual spring cleaning relies on volunteers to help pick up the piles of litter along boulevards and ditches after the winter. An organizer said this year’s group of 10 was a vast improvement over last year’s turnout of only three volunteers.

Former Fat Cats general manager Duncan MacDonald isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t getting any traction from the city for his idea to run community baseball programs and events in the empty Ottawa Baseball Stadium this summer.

City rejects idea to open baseball stadium for community baseball Laura Mueller

EMC news - A former Ottawa baseball teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s general manager says Ottawa is failing its kids by not opening up its baseball stadium this summer. Duncan MacDonald, who used to run the Intercounty Baseball League Ottawa Fat Cats, says the city has rejected his offer to re-open and manage the stadium for community baseball and events this summer. The stadium could sit unused this summer after the city failed to renew the Fat Catsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lease so it could keep the facility available for renovations needed to upgrade it for AA baseball. But so far, no AA team has materialized for Ottawa, leaving the renovation schedule unclear. Instead of mothballing the stadium, MacDonald and his company, Marketing Breakthroughs, proposed the city hire them to manage the facility for the summer. Their plan includes hosting family fun days, baseball camps for Little League players and hosting National Capital Baseball League adult games. But the city isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t biting, MacDonald said. He received an email from the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s general manager of parks and recreation saying that the city might have some occasional programming at the stadium throughout the summer, but it wants to keep the schedule flexible to accommodate repairs and upgrades. Meanwhile, Little League teams are emailing him to say they have to turn kids away because there is a shortage of diamond space. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a waiting list for Little League,â&#x20AC;? MacDonald said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have failed our kids.â&#x20AC;? The Fat Cats re-ignited enthusiasm for baseball in Ottawa, MacDonald said, and now the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Little

League teams canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t keep up with the demand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now, we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even get enough respect for them to consider our proposal,â&#x20AC;? MacDonald said. According to the email MacDonald shared, the city official wrote: â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;Śwe will not be looking to attract seasonal or league play or any organized activities that will require regular and continual use throughout the summer. Rather, we will focus on booking tournaments and other suitable activities that will be consistent with the site and do not cause undo damage to the field or facility.â&#x20AC;? Another issue is that the proposal is unsolicited and sole-sourced â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a problem from the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perspective, MacDonald said. He said he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree with the explanations the city is providing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So why not do a tender?â&#x20AC;? he asked. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not in the works, according to the email from the city parks and rec manager. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because of this approach, we will not be issuing a request for proposal to hire a facility management company to animate the stadium and will coordinate any bookings through the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s existing allocations unit,â&#x20AC;? the email reads. MacDonald said the city underestimated how difficult it would be to find investors to support AA baseball in Ottawa and he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe local investors are willing to step up to the plate and take the risk. A Champions for Ottawa Baseball drive for seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tickets deposits for a future AA team mostly relied on soliciting local businesses for support, MacDonald claimed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the groundswell of community support,â&#x20AC;? he said. MacDonald wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say what his next step on the proposal will be, but he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not done.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Somebody has to speak up for baseball in the community,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Dialysis beds at Résidence St. Louis first for Ontario Six beds to be added to June Brier Dodge

wherever you make memories to treasure.

BOOK YOUR TOUR TODAY. Lunch is on us!

EMC news - An Ottawa longterm care facility will be the first in the province to specialize in dialysis care, adding six beds dedicated to dialysis patients in June. Patients in the program at Résidence St. Louis will be able to receive dialysis treatment overnight, in their own beds, instead of making frequent trips to the hospital. “You get to do it overnight as you’re sleeping, and then you’re fine, you’re good to go,” said Simon Akinsulie, director of long-term care for Bryère Continuing Care. “It eliminates the time you’d typically be in a dialysis place, wasting time.” Typically, dialysis patients, who suffer from kidney disease, have to travel to the hospital at least several times a week, to be hooked up to a dialysis machine before they can return home. Peritoneal dialysis will be offered for the six beds at the residence, which means a tube will be hooked up through the abdomen and work overnight through an automated system. Currently, there is nowhere in the health care authority’s Eastern Ontario jurisdiction where residents can live in a care facility and have dialysis without going to the hospital. The facility will be the first longterm care home in Ontario to have the

You get to do it overnight as you’re sleeping, and then you’re fine, you’re good to go SIMON AKINSULIE

ence for residents,” Akinsulie said. “It’s a far improved quality of life.” There is a cost to be in long-term care, but there will be no additional cost for the dialysis beds. The program is funded through the provincial and federal governments and a partnership between the Local Health Integration Network and the Ottawa Hospital. The residence is a francophone home, but Akinsulie said that services can be provided in English as well. Dialysis patients will be accepted based on referrals to the Community Care Access Centre, using the same referral process used for access into any of the long-term care facilities. Akinsulie said he hopes that the innovative program will eventually expand into other long term care facilities throughout the province. Community Care Access Centres can be reached by calling 310-2222, a universal number from anywhere in the province.

Each day marked with special chores


y sister Audrey said she was tired of the same old routine day in and day out. Since I was so very young when she made this comment, I had no idea what routine was. So I asked Audrey to print the word in my scribbler and say what the word meant. Even at that early age I was very interested in words and kept a record in a fat scribbler whenever I heard one I hadn’t heard before. My scribbler was getting quite thick and even though I went over it often, I would forget what a word meant and Audrey would have to explain it to me all over again, which didn’t please her in the least.

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories Well, Audrey could say what she liked about routine and how bored she was with it, but I liked how our lives on the farm were so orderly, and as far as I was concerned I wanted nothing to change. Every Monday morning, our beds didn’t have to be made up because that was the day the sheets were stripped and Mother

did the washing. It didn’t matter if the snow was coming down in buckets, or it was raining so hard you could barely see the barns, Monday was wash day. I knew that on Monday night there would be fresh sheets on our beds, taken right off the clothes line and smelling of spring and the outdoors. That night, I didn’t mind in the least going to bed.

Every Tuesday when we came from school, we could smell in the kitchen the scent of newly ironed clothes. Shirts would be draped over chairs, tea towels stacked neatly in a pile on the kitchen table ready to be put in the drawer in the back-tothe-wall cupboard. Even our pinny aprons would be ironed and hanging on the hook by the stove. Without fail, Tuesday was the day the ironing was done. At mealtimes, things never varied. Breakfast was the very same every morning: big bowls of porridge, fried potatoes, back bacon and thick slices of homemade bread slathered with butter and jam. See SATURDAY, page 50

CELEBRATING CHILDREN AND YOUTH IN CARE On May 14th, 2013 join the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa (CASO) in supporting Children and Youth in Care Day. This month, we are celebrating the strength and resilience of the approximately 700 children and youth in care. CASO becomes involved with families in the community when there may be a concern that a child or youth is at risk of abuse or neglect. Some of them are removed from their homes for a short period of time until circumstances are improved, some remain in care on an extended basis, and still others are adopted into new families. While their life paths are different than those of their peers, they face many of the same hurdles and challenges, and share the same hopes and dreams. We recognize the bravery and resilience shown by these children and youth in the face of adversity. The strength they have developed is admirable. It is for this reason we are asking you to join the children and youth in care in being Strong and Proud. Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa 613-747-7800 E-mail:’s aid society of ottawa

Mother’s Day is about looking good and feeling great from the inside out!

The importance of strength training: ƒ Develop strong bones – strength training increases bone density and reduces the risk of osteoporosis. ƒ Control your weight – as you gain muscle, your body will burn calories more efficiently – which can result in weight loss. ƒ Reduce your risk of injury – building muscle helps protect your joints from injury. It can also contribute to better balance, which can assist in maintaining your independence as you age. ƒ Boost stamina – as you get stronger, you won’t fatigue as easily. ƒ Manage chronic conditions – strength training can reduce symptoms and signs of many chronic conditions such as arthritis, back pain, depression, diabetes and osteoporosis. ƒ Sharpen your focus – some research suggests that regular strength training helps improve attention for older adults.



Begin her morning with a cup of warm water and the juice of half of a lemon to wake up the digestion. Save the other half of the lemon to make an awakening hot towel by mixing hot water with the juice of the other half of the lemon. Lemon is a natural astringent and will leave her skin feeling fresh, clean and glowing. Then treat Mom to a refreshing bowl of quinoa with berries and lemon zest. The high fibre helps to balance blood sugar and helps collagen production to keep her skin glowing and healthy. As a gift you can make her a Grapeseed Avocado Oil Night Moisturizer with this simple recipe, and then enjoy your Mother’s Day with family and friends!

GRAPESEED AVOCADO OIL NIGHT MOISTURIZER Grapeseed oil (great for normal, oily, or acne-prone skin) Avocado oil (incredibly regenerating, this oil is known for its firming & anti-aging abilities – as a bonus it penetrates deep into the skin for better absorption of nutrients like vitamin A, D, E giving you wonderful anti-inflammatory properties.)

Fill your small bottle just under ⅔ of the way with grapeseed oil. Add the avocado oil until the bottle is almost full. Apply topically to the face at night to help moisturize and reduce fine lines.

Sweet ride Barrhaven resident Camille Cote tries a bike on for size at the annual bike swap event hosted by the 1st Kanata Scouts at the Mlacak community centre on April 27. The nineyear-old went to look for bikes with her father, who said he wanted to support the scout group as the family is part of the larger scouting community in Ottawa. The event sells and swaps 400 bikes in the span of a few hours, raising about $4,000 to help the scouts buy camping gear and subsidize annual fees for low-income participants.

Saturday was for butter churning Continued from page 47

Dinner was always at noon -- there was no such thing as lunch in the middle of the day. The routine of mid-day dinner never varied. Father expected, and got, meat, potatoes, one or two different vegetables and an ample piece of homemade pie. After all, his work had begun at dawn, and even though his breakfast was ample, by noon it had worn off and he was more than ready for what he called “a decent meal.” The routine continued at supper: meat and potatoes, but dessert would be preserves. We never went to bed without something to tide us over to morning. I couldn’t imagine this routine being broken. This was all part of our life on the farm. Friday night was always the time to get ready for peddling Mother’s wares in

Renfrew the next day. There was a regular routine that never varied as long as we lived in Northcote and was one of my favourite evenings in the entire week. Audrey and I would gather the eggs from the hen house. Audrey would wash them in warm soapy water and I would dry them with a clean flour bag tea towel. Mother would weigh them into their sizes on the egg scale -- small, medium and large -- and we would carefully pack them into 11-quart baskets. Mother’s sticky buns would be wrapped in wax paper, freshly plucked chickens singed and laid out on the bake table on a clean white sheet, ready to be packed in the Model T in the morning. Then every Saturday without fail, Mother headed into Renfrew to go door-to-door with what we had prepared the night before.

HAPPY 50th Wedding Anniversary Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Arcy & Erna! Over these many years together they have camped, hiked & canoed with family and friends. They keep active, in the city, with curling, golďŹ ng, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mario servicesâ&#x20AC;?, cooking scrumptious meals for friends & family, gardening & looking after their grandchildren. They are best known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grandma & Grumpsâ&#x20AC;? to the 7 grandchildren (Justin, Kayla, Katherine, Liam, Connor, Quinn & Kathleen) from their 4 sons Martin, Thomas, Kevin & Brendan. They also have 2 grand-dogs (Daisy & Toby). While they enjoy retirement & time to travel the world, Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Arcy can be found relaxing with the newspaper or his iPad accompanied with a glass of wine in hand. Erna does enjoy wine too, but she is equally content to sit with her husband of 50 yrs. with her cup of tea as she knits or plays Suduko. Congratulations for the many miles behind you and the many more yet to come!

Peace, Love & Happiness.

Home&Garden Building a jungle gym for the kids Hours of fun can be had by children in backyard EMC lifestyle - The computer craze has left a lot of outdoor toys gathering dust, and children end up spending a lot of time indoors – not getting any exercise. Looking for a way to get them back outside? Why not give them the irresistible desire to play in the great outdoors? Building an authentic jungle gym at home will provide them with lots of challenges and hours of fun. Building a jungle gym can be completed slowly over time. The space dedicated to your kids’ play area can fill up over the years as you add new elements. And there is no lack of op-

tions when it comes to building a jungle gym. You can include swings, slides, ropes and ladders for climbing, a bunk house, a sandbox, rings, trapezes and other fun things. There is no lack of things for kids to do and create. If your handyman or handywoman skills are rusty, a wide selection of family-sized jungle gyms containing various elements built into a single structure is available. These parks can be easily installed in a corner of the yard. The best place to set up a jungle gym is in a shaded area where kids can play without you having to worry about the harmful effects of the sun. Choose a spot that is easily visible from the house for better supervision, and ensure that the playing surface is soft – such as sand or grass – to absorb eventual tumbles. FILE

A beautiful in-ground pool offers fun and relaxation for your whole family.

Planning the perfect pool for your family is worth effort Enjoy cooling off in the comfort of your own home


EMC lifestyle - What could be more exciting than deciding to install a swimming pool in your back yard? Since this will probably be the only pool you buy for your home, make sure make the right choice. This means taking your family’s needs and the potential of your yard into consideration. If you plan on doing lots of laps, go for a long, straight pool. If you like to jump off

the diving board, opt for a deeper pool. If you have kids, consider a curvy or round pool that will allow them to play various water games. The size of your property and the depth of your pockets will play a determining role in how large a pool you can install. You also need to take into consideration any hydroelectric lines that may be buried under your property as well as any municipal bylaws that require a minimum space around your home and property limits. If your yard is on an incline, you will need to choose between levelling your yard, which might require install-

ing a talus or a low wall, and building a balcony that directly reaches the pool. While this latter option will only work with an above-ground pool, it will make it seem like an inground pool. Since they are more affordable, above-ground swimming pools are popular choices with many homeowners. What’s more, they can be removed or relocated fairly easily. These types of pools can be accessed with either a ladder or directly from a balcony. A more costly option, inground swimming pools can make beautiful additions to a backyard, but they are not easily moved. R0012083251
