EMC news - The city and Ottawa police teamed up in Barrhaven on May 14 to put a stop to trafďŹ c violations near two heavily populated schools. The trafďŹ c blitz – which was held in the area of Berrigan and LongďŹ elds drives – aimed to get residents to slow down, pay attention to road signs and stay off their cell phones, said Const. Peter McKenna. “We don’t want to come in with an iron ďŹ st,â€? McKenna said the day before the blitz. “We are pushing education.â€? There were nine police ofďŹ cers out in the intersection and in the surrounding area between 8 and 9 a.m. on May 14. Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder said there was a mix of plainclothes ofďŹ cers, marked and unmarked cars and motorcycles. “It really went very well,â€? she said. “Berrigan has 1,000 students, the largest population of any school in the city. With the expansion, LongďŹ elds-Davidson Heights (Secondary School) will have 2,000 students. It’s important for parents – and residents – to be safe and remember the rules of the road.â€? McKenna tweeted that 51 tickets were issued during the school drop-off period. In the larger area of Barrhaven he said 26 drivers

EMC news - Thanks to a little help from the community, Mary Honeywell Elementary School will have two new play structures installed by next fall. The school unveiled the ďŹ rst of the two new play structures on May 15. Helen Crawford, co-chair of the school’s parent council, said the board deemed the kindergarten play structure unsafe in the spring of 2011. It was an ambitious goal, but the parent council pledged to raise the money for a new structure in a year’s time.

“It already broke our hearts that one kindergarten year would have to go through a year without a play structure,� Crawford said. “We wanted to make sure that it was only for one year.� While the council already had $10,000 in the bank in anticipation of the need, there was still quite a ways to go to raise the money needed. “We needed to have more than $35,000 when it was all said and done,� Crawford said.

Funds roll in for wheelchair hockey league New provincial money to purchase equipment trailer

“It’s the closest league we have,” said Linda Kelly, Joey’s mother. “This is his first year playing and he loves it. He just lights up while he plays.” The game is competitive, and very fast-paced. Every team member gets the chance to play. Kelli Tonner’s 11-year-old son, Kellen Schleyer, plays for the Sharks, and she said she gets knots in her stomach every Sunday before the game. “He is very competitive and this game and team allow his competitive streak to come out,” Tonner said. “It’s as challenging and exciting as any other game.” Haycock said the organization has come a long way in the four years since starting up the charity league, and thanked all the volunteers for their continued support. “We have grown tremendously

EMC news - A local wheelchair hockey league is looking to expand its programming thanks to a grant from the province. The Ottawa Power Wheelchair Hockey league provides recreational and competitive floor hockey programs for people with disabilities. The league, which operates out of the Greenboro Community Centre, received a Ontario Trillium Grant of $5,900 to help expand from two teams to four, as well as purchase equipment and rent recreational space to in which to play. “This funding will help us continue to provide a professional, safe, adapted sports and recreation program for those whom suffer from disabilities,” said Donna Haycock, chairwoman of the league. “Wheelchair hockey provides players with an enabling ability, where even the most severely disabled person can compete and contribute to the success of their team.” The league doubled its roster this year and with the new funding it aims to continue expansion. Ottawa West-Nepean MPP Bob Chiarelli announced the funding before dropping the ball ahead of Game 2 of a three game series between the league’s current teams on May 12. “It doesn’t matter what type of hockey you play -- it’s a tremendous rush to play and it’s Canada’s sport,” Chiarelli said. As a hockey player and fan, Chiarelli added he understands the importance to be a part of a team.

Barrhaven resident to head to Costa Rica in support of Canadian Arthritis Society Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

Reforming the Temporary Foreign Worker Program Recently, Canadians have raised concerns about the Temporary Foreign Worker Program being used by some employers to replace Canadians with foreign workers. Our government’s priority is to ensure that Canadians get first crack at available jobs in their area. This is why we have launched a review of the Program, and have moved quickly to identify and correct the problems that were preventing qualified Canadian workers from getting jobs. We will ensure Canadians are always given first chance at available jobs. We are mandating that companies produce a solid business plan to transition from the use of foreign workers to Canadians, including training Canadians if necessary. This will ensure that temporary foreign workers do not become permanent employees or a long-term solutions solution when many Canadians cannot find employment. We are also ensuring that we hold companies accountable, by increasing our authority to revoke work permits for those companies that do not play by the rules. This will prevent further fraud and ensure that the introduction of foreign workers into the workplace does not have an overall negative impact on the labour market. We are asking additional questions as part of the application process, so that when employers bring in temporary foreign workers, no Canadian workers are displaced as a result of outsourcing. We will require that employers using the Temporary Foreign Worker Program pay the workers at the prevailing wage for that job. Our government is also proposing the introduction of fees for companies who wish to employ foreign workers, so that taxpayers are no longer subsidizing the application process. These changes will strengthen and improve the Temporary Foreign Worker Program and support our economic recovery and growth. Our government will continue to review the program, and you can expect more changes in the coming months. Pierre Poilievre MP Nepean-Carleton

Nepean-Barrhaven News EMC - Thursday, May 23, 2013

EMC news - Barrhaven resident Charlene Knight is putting her plans in motion. Knight was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis 10 years ago after the birth of her daughter Madeline Rossetti. “The pain to simply walk or drive and to dress or to pick Maddie up was more than I could bear on most days,” Knight said. The mother of two said she refused to be a victim. She participated in her first Joints in Motion event in 2011, by completing a half marathon on the Great Wall of China. The next year she did another half marathon in Lausanne, Switzerland. Over the course of two years, Knight managed to raise $30,000 for the Canadian Arthritis Society. This year is the biggest one yet, Knight said, because her children Dante, 9 and Madeline, 10, will be doing the 10-kilometre run with their mother. The trio has already started their training by walking the 2.5 km whenever they want to get a book at Chapters, but Knight said they plan to start seriously training in June. “The kids came with me to China and Switzerland, but they are beyond excited for this one because they will actually get to participate,” Knight said.

Rheumatoid arthritis is a type of inflammation that causes the immune system to become confused and attack the body.

I want to raise awareness about how debilitating arthritis can be. CHARLENE KNIGHT

The target of the attack is the lining of the joints and sometimes other internal organs – such as the lungs or heart. It causes swelling, pain, inflammation and joint destruction. Knight had her children close together because she wanted to be finished having children before experimenting with the right cocktail of anti-inflammatory and pain medication. After her son was born, Knight started weekly chemo injections which controlled her pain for a couple of years. Then the meds just stopped working. Now, Knight said she has found some new biologic drugs that has given her a new lease on life. “The medication suppresses my im-

mune system so it doesn’t attack my joints, organs and eyes,” Knight said. The new medication and the support from the Canadian Arthritis Society are the reason she said she feels she has to give back. “I want to raise awareness about how debilitating arthritis can be,” Knight said. “I think that’s why my kids are so anxious to participate. They saw how it was when I was not doing so well and have seen the change with support and the right medication.” On top of running the marathons each year and raising $30,000, Knight became a provincial advisor to the Canadian Arthritis Society board of directors in 2012. “I will do all I can to help find a better future for myself and others who suffer from arthritis,” Knight said. Knight said she plans to raise $15,000 before she heads to Tamarindo Beach in Costa Rica on Sept. 18. She has already raised $4, 000. According the Arthritis Society, 4.5 million Canadians suffer from arthritis. More than 60,000 of those are children and 300,000 people suffer from rheumatoid arthritis. There are more than 100 types of the disease. To learn more about Knight’s journey or to donate to her campaign, visit jointsinmotion.kintera.org.

Aside from a silent auction, which includes items like tickets to the Justin Bieber concert in July and an iPad mini, there will exhibitors showcasing everything from animal CPR to agility training. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a really fun day,â&#x20AC;? Gorman said, adding the Alta Vista Animal Hospital will have an exhibit, along with a pet photographer, supply outlets and grooming establishments.

Pugs who have been adopted thanks to the rescue will strut their stuff during a parade and those dogs awaiting adoption will come out and hopefully meet people interested in taking them to their forever home, Gorman said. It takes more than a village to run the rescue, Gorman said, adding all the people involved are volunteers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have no physical shelter building where we can house dogs, so we rely completely on fosters,â&#x20AC;? she said. Potential adopters are required to undergo a home visit and complete a comprehensive application form in an effort to make sure the dogs wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end up back with the rescue. Gorman said she has always had a fondness for pugs because of their strong-willed personalities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of dog in a small package,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are a lot of fun.â&#x20AC;? As long as there are still backyard breeders and puppy mills, there is a need for Under My Wing to exist, Gorman said. Events like Pugstock also shed light on the work rescue organizations do and help to raise awareness about where to look when searching for a four-legged addition to your family.

Time to confront concussions

T

he death of a Barrhaven teen after sustaining a severe head injury during a rugby game last week has highlighted the need for more education about concussions and brain

injuries. Rowan Stringer, 17, a John McCrae Secondary School student and the captain of her school rugby team, was tackled hard and hit her head and neck on the ground during a game on May 14. According to comments from her parents, Rowan had suffered two head injuries the week leading up to her fatal injury. The first time, she told her parents and took a pain reliever, the second time she only told her friends about the injury. We don’t know if these were concussions, but the family has authorized an autopsy to find out the factors leading to her death. Ottawa’s public school board is now taking a hard look at its safety policies to see if they can be improved and make sure players aren’t playing with injuries. But we can’t place the onus on just the coaches – it’s impossible for them to monitor every single hit. All of us – parents, family members, fellow players, properly armed with the knowledge about the dangers of head injuries can help prevent

athletes playing with concussions. The president of the Brain Injury Association of Canada has suggested, during an interview with the media, that Rowan might still be alive today if there was better awareness among coaches, players and the general public about the dangers of repeated concussions. The danger of suffering an injury, ranging from bumps and bruises to broken bones and head injuries, is a fact of life for all athletes. Nothing will change that. But athletes properly educated about the dangers of head injuries, can intelligently decide whether or not they are fit to participate in a game or competition. A big part of the problem is athletes don’t want to report head injuries because they’re afraid they will miss games. Education is a universal cure for poor decision making and a key component for preventing and treating sports-related concussions. Schools and sports associations should provide coaches, players and parents with the training and knowledge to both identify and treat concussions and head injuries. Research shows that if an athlete takes a hit to the head and suffers headaches afterwards, they may have suffered a concussion. An ounce of prevention is worth a ton of cure.

Public and private adjustment to playoff hockey mode

T

his time of year the news media, searching for ways to make hockey playoffs meaningful to the nonhockey population, focus on the fans, big crowds of them in matching colours, shaking towels in matching colours, yelling, dancing, or – as in Toronto – looking suddenly suicidal. The cameras prowl around the city looking for hockey fans being interesting – which is to say, noisy and excited. Naturally, the cameras find the public areas where noisy and excited people gather. In Ottawa, that would be the so-called Red Mile downtown. People with painted faces and colourful costumes are there. Along the Red Mile, and its equivalent in other cities, the cameras enter the bars, where people are all too happy to wave and shout and chant and look like newsworthy fans. But there are other, less newsworthy fans in our city. Perhaps they are the majority. Fortunately for them, the cameras do not seek them out. For these fans their fanaticism is private. They stay out of the public places. Their faces remain unpainted and they wear their normal clothes. Yet in their own way, they are making the adjustment to playoff mode.

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town This requires changes in their behaviour patterns. Dinner, instead of being at the usual time, now must be earlier, to be over in time for the game. Or it must become a different kind of dinner, in order to be eaten off the lap in front of the TV set. Or it must be so late as to be verging on fashionable. Social life becomes more complicated. A dinner party scheduled weeks ago suddenly is found to coincide with the game. It can’t be shifted: that would be rude. So calculations have to be made. Are the guests fans? Would they mind eating at 5:30, before the game? Would they mind eating at 10 p.m., after the game? Can they persuaded to eat Chinese food off their laps, in front of the TV, with chopsticks? And if the guests are not hockey fans? Published weekly by:

There are people in the world who think about other things and are oblivious to what happens on the ice. They want to talk about Syria. How many times can you sneak away from the conversation during dinner to check the score? And what will be your excuse – stirring the dessert, making the coffee, a sudden nosebleed, another sudden nosebleed? And how to explain to your guests the sudden elation/depression you feel around 10 p.m? Depression could be Syria, I suppose. Another trial facing the private fan has to do with his/her children/grandchildren. They can scarcely be shielded from the fanaticism that is all around them. But they can’t be allowed to stay up until 10 on a school night either. As a consequence, a small but significant proportion of the fan base only sees the first period. But even that one period has its own challenges. The commercials have to be muted – which leads to the spectacle of silent video game monsters and Justin Trudeau in his undershirt. Further, a quick escape strategy has to be plotted to divert impressionable young eyes away from the fights. “Quick: Weather Network!” goes the cry whenever the gloves are dropped. In some games, the children see more low

pressure systems than slapshots. They must wonder why people paint their faces for this. Even among private fans, the pressure builds, the anguish and the ecstasy, the groans and cheers, and the tough part, at the end of it, is to explain to the children and grandchildren of private fans that it’s only a game, that you shouldn’t be mad at your team, you shouldn’t hate the other team and life goes on, win or lose. While you’re doing that, the screen fills with all the grieving painted faces in one city and all the hysterically happy painted faces in the other. Quick: Weather Network!

What women really want

Web Poll THIS WEEKâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S POLL QUESTION:

Should the death of a young rugby player force schools to take a second look at athletic safety in Ottawa?

A) Yes. It is an oppotunity for teachers,

coaches, parents and students to learn more about head injuries.

PREVIOUS POLL SUMMARY:

A) Definitely. Nothing brings everyone in the city together like rallying behind our team.

B) Yes. Hazardous sports like football,

B) I think it is a wonderful time to be a hockey fan, but the rest of us just shrug it off.

C) No. The teenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death was a isolated in-

C) No. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think sports are something that should be used to bind a community together.

D) Do we really need another reason to

D) I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even notice the playoffs had started. Is that what all the hubbub is about?

rugby and hockey have no place in the school system. cident and isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t an indication of a wider problem. turn young people away from physical activity?

I

was having coffee with a friend of mine the other day. She has a full-time job, three school-age children and a husband who also has a full-time job, an hour-long daily commute and chronic health problems. As one does in these situations, I asked, â&#x20AC;&#x153;howâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s it going?â&#x20AC;? Always with a sense of humour, she said, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chaotic, but okay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But the laundry! I need to hire someone to fold the laundry! My children are starting to think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s normal to search for clean clothes in a mountain in the basement,â&#x20AC;? she lamented. I started thinking deeply on her laundry dilemma. If my friend were a man, would she be more likely to outsource the laundry? I suspect she would. In fact, earlier this year, when my husband was midway through his parental leave, he did just. He had stuff he wanted to do while on leave, like spend a few hours perusing his favourite stores, visit with friends, have a daily shower (and, ironically, renovate the laundry room). So he put the request out there: â&#x20AC;&#x153;What if we hire someone a few mornings per week to look after the baby?â&#x20AC;? I was nervous at first and really unsure about the financial sustainability of it. It also seemed incredibly indulgent, considering we were both home. But five months in, I realize itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing to have an extra pair of hands on deck. In fact, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure how I ever stayed home full-time with my boys when they were babies and managed everything on

Do you think a Senators playoff run helps to raise community spirit in Ottawa?

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse my own. (Anyone with a toddler knows that cleaning up after their self-feeding meals alone is a full-time job -never mind the fact that a baby seems to triple the household laundry at minimum). It made me think: â&#x20AC;&#x153;leave it to a man to come up with a practical solution to buy a few hours of free time each week, so that, you know, he could have a life as well as look after a baby full-time.â&#x20AC;? Yes, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m gender stereotyping here. But most stereotypes are grounded in some version of the truth. And the reality is that women, especially where children are concerned, too often fail to consider themselves first. I look around at the women I know and regardless of whether theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re home full-time or trying to simultaneously work outside the home and look after things on the domestic front, it seems everyone is simply doing too much. Last year, American academic Anne-Marie Slaughter caused a stir with her article in The Atlantic, and especially its title, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why Women Still Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Have it All.â&#x20AC;? But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m wondering why anyone would want to have it all -- well, at least, the responsibility of it all. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incredibly freeing to delegate

and outsource tasks, whether thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hiring someone to throw dinner in the slow-cooker and get the laundry into the drawers each day, or getting an accountant to do your taxes. With the recent release of Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandbergâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book, Lean In, there is a new mainstream discussion emerging on the future of feminism. The co-authors of The New Girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Network recently noted in a Harvard Business Review blog much of this new discussion is focused on â&#x20AC;&#x153;executive feminism,â&#x20AC;? primarily, how to get more women into top roles of organizations. And while this is an essential conversation to be having, particularly pushing cultural change in organizations to better develop women into top roles, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also necessary to continue empowering women across the board. Perhaps the best place to start is by encouraging women to be a bit more selfish. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scrap the ideologies that cause women to believe they are solely responsible for rearing the perfect child. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s start â&#x20AC;&#x153;thinking like menâ&#x20AC;? and putting ourselves first so we can be healthier, stronger and offer a well-rounded perspective to our kids. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s empowering and at the end of the day, I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what women really want.

EMC news - Rugby player Rowan Stringer, a Grade 12 student at John McCrae Secondary School, died May 12 following a hit during a girls rugby game on May 8. Stringer, who played with the Barrhaven Scottish Rugby Football Club, took a hit during a home game against St. Joseph High School. Her family made the decision on May 11 to take her off life support, and began preparations to donate the 17-year-old team captain’s organs – an easy decision, her father said. “When we made the decision to stop interventions on Saturday, it was very easy for us to transition into going through the process of donating her organs, because that is exactly what she wanted to have done,” Gordon Stringer said. She had already been accepted into nursing school at the University of Ottawa in September,

down and losing consciousness. “We have no qualms about the sport or anything ... but it is a pretty rough sport and she liked that,” he said. “She liked to get in the rough and tumble and she was a pretty good athlete, but she took a pretty hard hit,” he said. “As a school system, we are so extremely saddened and we extend our sincere condolences to the Stringer family,” said board spokesperson Sharlene Hunter. Decisions on the rest of the season for high school rugby teams has not been decided yet, she said. The John McCrae rugby game scheduled for May 13 against St. Mark was cancelled, along with all school sports for May 13 and 14. The board said that support staff would be on hand to help students through the grieving process. Rugby Canada’s CEO, Graham Brown, ordered condolences to her family and friends. “Now is the time for all of us to come together and support the Stringer family as they deal with this terrible loss. We will provide updates on how the Canadian rugby community can support the Stringers,” he said. With files from TorStar News Service

There was an educational component before the relay that helped students understand the impact of cancer, as well as prevention and the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle. While there was no fundraising goal for the inaugural event, Shelton said she had hoped to raise $10,000.

At the end of the day on May 10, the school handed over a cheque for $13,500. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were thrilled,â&#x20AC;? Prevost said.

EMC news - The city hopes adding an iconic new art gallery and a tower to Arts Court will make the historic site into a “people place.” The current hub of arts in Ottawa is set to expand next year and designs for the new buildings to be added to the complex were presented at a community meeting on May 14. “We want to make it a place of civic pride – not just arts groups camped out in the former courthouse,” said Barry Padolsky, one of the architects hired by the city to work on the project. The $40.5-million expansion will include a large addition to the existing Arts Court building – a heritage complex that used to be home to the courthouse and registry office. The second architect the city hired for the project, Mitchell Hall, said the new Ottawa Art Gallery portion would be a 3,260 square-metre “elegant box” tucked in along the existing north-south stone wall that divides the site. The city is looking at hav-

ing the gallery building serve as a billboard for art, perhaps using projection or a digital sign, Hall said. A 250-seat screening room, a café and a black-box theatre on Waller Street for the University of Ottawa is also part of the concept. Open space, seating areas and sculpture courts would buffer the new buildings along Daly Avenue, leading into the main entrance, and along Waller. The adjacent former jailhouse is now a privatelyowned hostel and not up for redevelopment. In addition, the city is hoping to make $3.5 million to put towards the project by selling the air rights for a 23-storey tower at the corner of Waller Street and Daly Avenue. It could become a hotel, condo tower, offices, or perhaps even a residence for the University of Ottawa. “It’s too early to tell” what the tower could become, said Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury. He didn’t have a preference, but he is keen on ensuring the tower’s use and branding are compatible with

the theme of the arts complex. Padolsky and Hall have offered a conceptual design for the tower, but it will be up to the winner bidder to create their own concept for the tower. Padolsky and Hall can’t be on that design team, but they will serve as the city’s “advocate architects” to ensure the tower’s design fits into the concept for the block. The existing Arts Court buildings wouldn’t change much, but the space would be repurposed to allow current tenants like SAW and Art Engine to expand. After all the rezonings and approvals are complete, hopefully in the fall, the project will go to tender to find a builder and a buyer for the tower air rights, Padolsky said. A builder is expected to be selected and construction is to begin in the spring or summer of 2014. It would be completed by 2016, Padolsky said. The tender can’t go out until the city confirms $9 million in funding from the federal government. But the delay lies with the city, not the federal government, said project manager Lauren Reeves. “That’s not a delay on their part,” she said. “It was part of our design process.” In 2011, the city approved spending $36.14 million on the expansion.

“She gave her sister 29 years of life”

Emma Jackson

eventually became diseased, and Moira was on dialysis for several years before she died from breast cancer in 1987. Johnson also has kidney disease in her remaining kidney, but is not yet on dialysis. Still, Johnson said she’s aware how remarkable her story still is 55 years later. “We knew it was important,” she said. EARLY PREVENTION

emma.jackson@metroland.com

When Kidney Foundation staff chose May 14 to hold the Eastern Ontario chapter’s annual general meeting, they didn’t know they were marking the 55th anniversary of the first kidney transplant in the Commonwealth. But when several key players in the historic surgery started to show up at Southminster United Church to take part in the meeting, a buzz began to grow. Dr. John Dossetor, a Canadian physician and kidney expert who coordinated that first transplant from McGill University in Montreal, attended the meeting with his wife. He was joined by Nola Johnson, who donated her kidney to her twin sister Moira on May 14, 1958 when she was just 15 years old - making Canadian and kidney research history. “It’s strange that this (coincidence) would happen,” Johnson said. “When May 14th comes around I think about it but we don’t mark it.” Moira became ill in March, and Dossetor knew she was experiencing renal failure. At the time, transplants could only be done between identical twins and it was only by chance that the girls’ mother mentioned Moira did indeed have a twin. “We had to test to prove we were identical,” remembered Johnson, who volunteered her kidney as soon as she knew a transplant was a possibility. “It was just a week before they determined there could be an operation.” But it wasn’t so simple. Because the girls were minors, they had to face a family court judge to determine if they were able to consent to donate and receive kidneys. By the time the judge had given his approval, it was May. Though the operation had never been done in Canada or anywhere else in the Commonwealth, Johnson said her mother didn’t want to go to the United States where the doctors had more experience. “She had faith in the doctors,” Johnson said. With good reason. The transplant was successful, and Moira lived for 29 years with Johnson’s kidney. “It worked out quite well,” Dossetor said. “She gave her sister 29 years of life.” Since the sisters shared so many genes, Johnson’s donated kidney

Teach kids how to lead a healthy lifestyle and we’ll prevent a lot of kidney disease. This was the message from Ottawa Hospital kidney expert Dr. Shiv Jindal, who spoke at the AGM.

We should not be talking about organ failure, because it’s too late. We should be talking about vascular health, which is the common link. DR. SHIV JINDAL

It was the first time the foundation invited several speakers to address current issues in the field. Jindal spoke passionately about the need for prevention at a very young age, before any risk factors for kidney disease have even set in. “We should not be talking about organ failure, because it’s too late,” he told the audience of about 40 people. “We should be talking about vascular health, which is the common link.” Jindal said genes and factors like gender and ethnicity play a minor role in kidney disease. While the genes are there, it’s our lifestyle choices that cause them to develop kidney disease, he said. Avoiding unhealthy habits from the outset is crucial, Jindal said, and parents and educators must play a key role in making sure children are eating well, getting enough exercise and learning how to lead a healthy lifestyle in the future. When bad habits are allowed to continue, blood vessels are damaged and we don’t even know it, Jindal explained. The damage occurs across the entire body. There are no tests to prove it, and as the damage gets worse it then starts to effect organs. By the time the organs are damaged, there is little we can do to reverse the problem, Jindal said. And the problem is getting worse. Kidney disease has tripled in recent years, Jindal said, and in Ottawa there are 200 new patients each year. About 1,000 Ottawa residents are “That was way to easy!”

on some sort of dialysis, and another 550 attend the hospital’s progressive renal insufficiency (PRI) clinic. Between 150 and 175 residents are waiting for a new kidney. Jindal said he would like to see a small pilot project in Ottawa that teaches families and educators what a healthy lifestyle actually looks like, and how to promote that with children. “Despite all our marketing, all our publicity, nothing is working,” Jindal said. “Maybe we have to take a different approach.” SUCCESS STORIES

Despite the new format, the foundation still found time to celebrate its volunteers and success stories from the past year. Manotick resident David Presley received an excellence award for his door-knocking campaign during the foundation’s annual March Drive. Presley’s wife Lyn accepted the award of his behalf, as David is currently recovering from his kidney transplant at the end of April. “Unfortunately he can’t be here, but fortunately he can’t be here,” Lyn quipped as she thanked fellow volunteers for their support as David recovers. The Presleys waited five years for a kidney transplant, and the news of an available kidney came out of the blue on April 29 after a weekend at the Alive to Strive fundraising run in support of the foundation. He went into surgery about 12 hours later, and by early Tuesday morning was in recovery. “It has been a long five years leading up to this,” Lyn wrote in an email to her supporters that day. “Our thoughts and extreme gratitude is very much with the donor family who, in their time of grief made the decision to give life to others.” Stittsville teacher Marianne Graham was recognized for her “infectious enthusiasm” as she and her family raised $12,000 for the foundation at a community event last year. Graham donated her kidney to her husband Bill six years ago. Frank Fenn and Lucie Duguay from the Carlingwood Mall received the Rabbi Reuven P. Bulka award for an event they held at the westend mall in February, where they signed up 300 new people to be organ donors. A former staff member had needed a kidney transplant, and Fenn and Duguay decided to support him with their fundraiser. Along with signing up 300 new donors, they also raised about $5,000 for the foundation. Linda and Marcel Moncion, who own the Your Independent Grocer in Riverside South, were also recognized for outstanding support of the foundation. Manotick News reporter Emma Jackson accepted an award for EMC Metroland’s ongoing coverage of organ donation issues. “I just clicked and saved 90%”

Did you WagJag and get in on the savings? “I can't believe I saved so much... ”

Community breaks ground on new Torah Centre Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

EMC news - The community came together to celebrate the groundbreaking of what will be the site of the new Ottawa Torah Centre on May 12. Rabbi Menachem Blum began offering services out of the basement of his Barrhaven home 16 years ago. The new facility will be 1,114 square metres and will have a gathering hall with flexible walls to accommodate functions of different sizes and prayer services. It will also have a teen lounge, classrooms, a library, a kosher kitchen and meeting rooms. “This is much more than just a synagogue,” Blum said. “I want it to be an education centre and a community space as well.” The new building is slated to cost $4 million and has been in the works for six years. The Ottawa Torah Centre currently operates out of a temporary building on the site at Lamplighters Drive – near the intersection of Cedarview Road and Kennevale Drive. There are 120 families associated with the Ottawa Torah Centre, according to Blum; 50 of those families are associated with the Sunday school. The population, like that of the developing suburb of Barrhaven, continues to grow.

There has been a 14-fold increase in the enrolment at the Hebrew school since 2005. “When I moved to Barrhaven I think there was only one big-box store,” Blum said. “It has grown exponentially and so has the Jewish community.” Before moving from his Barrhaven home to the portable facility on Lamplighters, the congregation rented out a storefront of a strip mall on Cedarview. But the numbers just kept growing, prompting another move. In 2003, the Ottawa Torah Centre bought the 0.5-hectare plot of land their new home will be constructed on and asked architect Barry Hobin and Associates to draw up plans for the site. “We also installed water and sewer services and paved the parking lot,” Blum said. “It’s been a work in progress.” Blum said he hopes to have construction completed by June 2014. There’s still nearly $1 million in fundraising to be done, but he said he’s optimistic. “The community is very excited,” he said. Residents can follow the construction and fundraising progress on the Ottawa Torah Centre’s Facebook page, or by visiting www.ottawatorahcenter.com.

Ottawa library wants you to imagine its future Board chairwoman wants to re-open debate about closing branches Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - The Ottawa Public Library wants people to peek into a crystal ball and imagine what the library should look like in the future. Notably, the library wants to know what it should stop doing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not just new things it should take on. The central questions posed in the online survey â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the first phase of the public engagement process â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ask what the library should continue doing, what should it start doing and what should it stop doing in the next five years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know that we are changing,â&#x20AC;? said Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder, chairwoman of the Ottawa Public Library board. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are not currently delivering library services in the best way,â&#x20AC;? she

said. The campaign is online at imagine-opl-bpo.ca now and will be open for public comment until June 15. Those who participate will be eligible to win an iPad. People can post ideas and vote on other peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ideas. A day after the campaign launched the top idea, speed-dating for volunteer opportunities, had already received almost 250 â&#x20AC;&#x153;likes.â&#x20AC;? While discussing the possibility of closing library branches is politically unpopular, it might be time to re-open that debate, Harder said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do we continue to support and sustain our 33 branches and our Bookmobile?â&#x20AC;? Harder said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Or do we look at other opportunities that people may suggest and they may say will serve them just as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is that the best use of the taxpayersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; money?â&#x20AC;? she added. Adding user-pay programs to the libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s repertoire should also be considered, Harder said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am not afraid to start charging for some stuff,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a free ride at the library and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think that it needs to be. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not looking to make money,

ERIN K. CRASNER/SUBMITTED

The Ottawa Public Library has adopted this colourful logo to represent its public engagement campaign aimed at coming up with a plan for the library of the future. but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think we should be hindered from being relevant by not wanting to charge someone $25 for having something unique that people want,â&#x20AC;? Harder said. Harder said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see the libraries have more flexible space. She suggested putting the shelves on wheels so they could be moved around and the space repurposed to offer more programs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So the space that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re using isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily a large amount, but it is vibrant, vital and mobile,â&#x20AC;? Harder said.

Reducing the size of reference sections and instead focusing on helping people find the information in new ways should also be a priority, Harder said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a big job ahead of us. We do want to make sure weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re staying relevant,â&#x20AC;? she said. Library chief executive officer Danielle MacDonald said she wanted to undertake the consultation â&#x20AC;&#x153;primarily because it makes good sense to connect with our customers.â&#x20AC;? But the library also wants to hear

 

from people who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use the library about why, and what might make them begin accessing library services in person or online. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know there are new opportunities but we also know there are choices,â&#x20AC;? MacDonald said. The consultation will set the direction for an update to the libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strategic plan that should take form early next year. It will be the first time the library has done a major overhaul of its master plan since the city amalgamated.

Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre gets helping hand

MICHELLE NASH/METROLAND

Team challenge Rockcliffe Park student Lorien Harris waddles with a soccer ball at a rally with her Run for the Runs team mates on May 16.

Ridgemont, Rideau want to start a chain reaction Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Fourteen years ago, a girl named Rachel Scott was sitting on the grass out front of her school when two boys approached her and shot her five times. She didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know it at the time, but her life and death would help create a positive chain reaction all the way to Ottawa. Scott died on the grass in front of Columbine High School on April 20, 1999. She was the first of 13 students killed during the massacre. A popular and friendly girl, Scott always reached out to other students and friends in need, but it was not until her death that her influence on her town, her country and now the world has spread all the way to the students at two schools in Ottawa. Before she died, Scott had written an essay on how people should treat other people. Her father found her writing and deciding to share it with the world, creating Rachelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Challenge, a program about how to stop bullying. Ridgemont High School teacher, Toula Makris heard about the program and decided Scottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s message was important to share with her students and the students at another local school, Rideau High School. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought it was a really important to bring this message to the kids,â&#x20AC;? Makris said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And the kids have been so impacted by this presentation.â&#x20AC;? Kristy Krings of Rachelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Challenge came to both schools during the week of May 13 to tell Scottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story and to present the anti-bullying program.

MICHELLE NASH/METROLAND

Toula Makris and Kristi Krings take a moment after a Rachelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Challenge presentation at Ridgemont High School on May 14. An emotional Makris helped host members of Rachelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Challenge so students, including some from Rideau High School, could participate in workshops to help promote anti-bullying and positive change. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now in your schools, in your community, there are people who are going through things and a simple act of kindness can change that,â&#x20AC;? Krings said. The program is about five challenges: change how you feel about others, dream big and write down those dreams, choose positive influences, speak with kindness, and remind those you love

how special they are. The challenges are simple at heart and Krings explained this is why Scott believed creating positive change in the world was possible. According to Makris and Rideauâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school guidance counselor, Wendy Lamble, the students reacted well to the challenges. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Students you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think would even

care were emotional and wiping away tears throughout the assembly,â&#x20AC;? Makris said. Between the two schools 200 students participated in the program and workshops. Krings said she couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe how enthusiastic and how much the students at the school embraced the challenges. Krings said Scottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s message can reach out to all ages and the important thing to remember is anyone can change the world or make a positive impact on someone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life. Scott, Krings explained, was always reaching out to others and after she died, these individuals reached out to her family to tell how important their daughter was. It was these stories, Scottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s writings, poems and drawings and the images from that horrific day at Columbine High that make up the presentation of Rachelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Challenge. Although the students who Krings presents to these days may have been very young or not even alive when the killings at Columbine took place, Krings said each student still manages to relate to the story. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For most students Columbine is a big shock, they were babies when it happened,â&#x20AC;? Krings said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a story about a real person and that is what I think resonates with them.â&#x20AC;?

Local students paddling for biodiversity

School project takes learning to new heights with outdoors experience Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

EMC news - Students from a west-end private school on Morrison Drive will be paddling through the wilds in the name of biodiversity. Students Académie de la Capitale in grades nine, 10 and 11 left for British Columbia on May 24 to start a trek from Pitt Lake to Jericho Beach. The group will begin paddling at Pitt Lake and make their way down Pitt River to the Fraser, where they will take the North Arm past the airport and the UBC peninsula, ending at Jericho Beach. The trip is a little more than 50 kilometres on land and will take three-andhalf-days. Along the way, students will take samples of local flora and fauna. They plan to test water quality at Lester B. Pearson College on the way back. Barbara Odenwald, the trip co-ordinator, said the adventure coincides with The United Nations Biodiversity,

Students are making pemmican, a mixture of beef or turkey and ground berries that were eaten by the country’s original voyageurs. One of the two crews heading to British Columbia will be eating pemmican while they canoe. which starts on May 24. “It also encompasses most of our curriculum,” she said, adding students will use knowledge from biology, Canadian Civics, history, geog-

raphy and the languages. The rest of the city can keep up with our homegrown voyageurs through their Facebook and Twitter feeds (@AcadeCap).

Braving the elements and the tides, the crew will be made up of nine students and five teachers from the school travelling in two canoes. One crew will only eat the diet of

the country’s original voyageurs – a mixture of turkey or beef jerky and berries. The other crew will eat more modern fare. “It will really be roughing

it,” Odenwald said. The first night the group will camp out on a pristine camp sight. The second night they will stay on an organic farm and learn from Coquitlam elders about maintaining aboriginal heritage in an urban environment. The third night will be at a campground. The group’s classmates will be in contact via Skype and a presentation will be made when they return home. Oldenwald said the school has an international baccalaureate program, which commonly uses experiential learning to tie classroom material together. “Students will be meeting with local First Nations, experts from non-government organizations, and leaders from different levels of government in order to observe, discuss and learn about the impact of human activity and land use on the river,” Oldenwald said.

Elite runners in it to win brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC sports - Every year at the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend, thousands of runners pack the start area, anxious to run a five or 10 kilometre race, many with just the goal of completing the event. Leah Larocque isn’t one of them. Last year, her aim wasn’t just to finish, or place in the top half of the runners. Laroque wanted to win - a goal she accomplished, running five kilometres in under 18 minutes. Her final time was 17 minutes, 36 seconds. The race weekend average time for the five kilometre event was 35 minutes and 10 seconds. This year, Larocque and her training partner, Liz Maguire, a former marathoner, are going to tackle the 10-kilometre race, aiming to run in the 37 to 38 minute range. Aiming for a specific time – and a competitive one – means pacing yourself, said Larocque and Maguire. Larocque, 24, runs a shorter distance, the five kilometre race, so she has to make sure she doesn’t go too fast and run out of energy. Maguire, 46, is used to running longer distances, so she has to make sure she uses all the gas in her tank and doesn’t save too much energy. “For a five, I just go. Go fast, and hold it,” Larocque said. Maguire said the most common mistake of less experienced runners is they start too fast, and can’t keep the pace for the majority of the race. Larocque said many runners also skip the warm up, and head straight to the start line. ELITE

The start line experience

is different for these two Ottawa runners because they are in the elite category. Manny Rodrigues, elite athlete coordinator for the Ottawa Race Weekend, said he’s set to have about 120 elite athletes competing between the 10 kilometre race and the marathon. “It’s a very different mentality,” he said. “The people in the back are happy to compete. The people in the front are looking for a specific time or position. They make their money this way – it’s their bread and butter.” Rodrigues accommodates Ottawa’s top athletes into the elite category, but also recruits runners from all across the world, dealing with both applications and the agents of the athletes he’s trying to recruit. Top runners aren’t just competing for a chance at prize money, but are paid to come to Ottawa and compete. “Someone like Geoffrey Mutai, who was IAAF runner of the year – so the guy’s number one in the world for road racing – if you don’t pay him well, he’s not coming,” Rodrigues said. “For the recreational athlete to be involved in a race that has elite athletes, it has a lot more hype, it has a lot more news stories, a lot more crowds.” Mutai, a Kenyan, will be back again this year competing in the 10 kilometre race, alongside a handful of international runners, who are all capable of running the race in under 28 minutes. Larocque and Maguire aren’t getting paid the big bucks to run in the race, but the elite status will be an improvement, especially for Larocque because the five-kilometre race doesn’t have an elite start area. Elite runners start ahead of the rest of the pack. This prevents them from getting stuck behind a crowd of runners go-

THE HOTTEST S HO H O W ON O N H 2O !

ing at a significantly slower pace in a race where seconds lost can quickly add up. They also pick up race kits in different areas so they don’t need to deal with crowds. Rodrigues started lining up athletes months ago, as top elite runners will only do two or three marathons a year. He’s also accommodating the majority of Canada’s top marathoners, as the race weekend also acts as the marathon national championship. TRAINING

While many recreation runners will slowly work up to their race distance, running the full distance only on race day, competitive runners are running that, if not longer, on a regular basis. Elite marathon runners can log upwards of 200 kilometres a week, Rodriques said, which can work out to about five marathons a week. Maguire and Larocque run 16 to 18 kilometres for their long runs, with two or three interval running workouts mixed in through the week, and biking and swimming for cross training. The week of the race, the routine stays pretty close to normal, with a shorter long run and easier intervals. The international elite runners arrive a couple of days before the event, enough time to acclimatize, but not enough to lose the benefits of altitude training if it’s part of their routine. Rodriques said the competitive runners are a lot more focused on nutrition, monitoring everything that goes into their bodies, the rest before the race, and getting in a good warm up prior to the race. Marathon world record holder Patrick Makau, who ran the 10 kilometre race in Ottawa a couple of years ago, goes vegetarian the evening

Liz Maguire, left and Leah Laroque, are in training to run run the 10-kilometre race at the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend. before a race. “Meat won’t process, and therefore its unnecessary weight,” Rodrigues said. “So that’s the sort of level you’re looking at – they’re worried (about) every little ounce that’s going to be (there) at the start line.” Maguire said she sticks with what works during training, sticking with what works.

GOALS

Last year, Maguire – who qualifies for the master’s division, but is still competitive in the open – was 11th in the women’s 10 kilometre race. This year, the Riverside South mother will try and shave off some time to place even higher. It will be the first year that Larocque competes in the 10

kilometre event, but she hopes to run a time that would have put her among the top ten female runners last year. These race weekend veterans’ tips for new runners? “Don’t go too fast and enjoy it,” Maguire said. “Build off people who are cheering for you, but if there’s something left – giver,” Larocque said. “You’re going to be tired regardless.”

OTTAWA RACE WEEKEND

Connected to your community

Halvorsen brings elite experiences to Ottawa Race Weekend EMC sports - Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend race director John Halvorsen knows everyone can’t be a worldclass runner, but the two-time Olympian still wants thousands of runners to have an elite experience during the May 25 and 26 extravaganza. And that’s a big deal, in more ways than one. After all, an Ottawa Race Weekend record 42,573 runners participated in 2012, making it Canada’s largest multi-distance race event. Injury and Achilles tendon surgery prevented Halvorsen’s qualification for a third Olympic Games in 1996, but he was an icon on the North American running scene in the 1980s and 1990s, after coming to Ottawa from his native Norway as a young teenager when his dad took a job at the Norwegian embassy. His parents have long since returned to Norway, but Halvorsen remains in the National Capital area despite retaining his Norwegian citizenship. When he first arrived here, teachers at Sir Robert Borden High School allowed him to use a dictionary to find certain words, but his learning curve was quick and Canada soon became his new and comfortable home. He went on to earn his engineering degree and MBA at the University of Ottawa, and to win two Canadian club and five Canadian interuniversity cross-country championships, in addition to racing in the 1988 and 1992 Olympic Games. His best Olympic placing was 16th in the 10,000 metres in Seoul, while four years later he ran faster to place 19th in the same event in Barcelona, Spain. The 5-foot-8, 130-pound runner was also named Runner’s World male road racer of the year in 1989. Now about 170 pounds, the 46-year-old married father of three youngsters, ages 14, 12 and 10, remains physically active and connected to the sports community in the National Capital area. Living just across the Ot-

tawa River in Kingsmere, Que., he coaches at the local Nakkertok cross-country ski club, skis, cycles and continues to run. “I had a good run at running for years, and it was a great experience,” says Halvorsen, though convinced he could have run faster. For 10,000 metres on the track, he ran a world-class time of 27 minutes 43 seconds. “I know I could have better times, because my best times were not when I was in top shape,” says Halvorsen. After working 18 years in Ottawa’s high-tech industry, primarily in marketing and product management, he became Tamarack Ottawa Race weekend’s new full-time race director in late January. FULL-TIME STAFF

Halvorsen works with five other full-time staff, the board of directors, a volunteer race committee and numerous other volunteers. The other full-time staff are communications director Susan Marsh, operations manager Joe DuVall, event manager Al Macartney and assistant operations manager Ryan Cameron. One of the part-time staffers is long-time race director Jim Robinson, who spearheaded the evolution of Ottawa Race Weekend into one of the mosttalked-about running weekends in North America. “Honorary everything,” says Halvorsen of the retired Robinson, who now works as a part-time advisor for Ottawa Race Weekend. Halvorsen became involved with the organization in 1999 and went on to hold positions that include part-time race director and chairman of the Run Ottawa board of directors. No longer just about a marathon, as the event was when it began in the early 1970s, Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend is home to the marathon, half-marathon, 10K, 5K, 2K and kids 1K. The marathon will feature a record of more than 6,200 runners this year, but the 10K and half-marathon will each attract the biggest fields, of more than 11,000. Sponsorship plus entry fees

create an annual Ottawa Race Weekend budget of $2.8 million, including $400,000 for the elite racers. “Our primary focus, from a time and budget perspective, is organizing the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend because that’s the main event that draws the substantial portion of our revenues … but we also have other events,” says Halvorsen. The budget also accommodates organization of several Run Ottawa races during the year, including informal Beaver Chase trail runs, the Army Run which may attract more than 20,000 runners this September, the Jim Howe memorial, January’s Richmond road race, and Kanata’s Canada Day road races with 10K-, 5K, 1.2K- and 100 metre-races. As race director, Halvorsen says he’s called on for leadership, accounting and general management. For this month’s race weekend, Halvorsen sees his role as providing more leadership and vision: “Obviously, we’ve been around for a long time, so we’re not talking about reinventing the wheel, but it’s messaging. Sponsorship is another huge role.” He also remains involved with organizational details, like working with its supplier on course signs and structures. “We’re talking six-figure costs here, just for structures and signage,” says Halvorsen. Logistics, including those STEVE NEWMAN/METROLAND involving security, are also John Halvorsen, race director for Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend, shows the race routes part of the pie. on a map. SECURITY

Security remains an important part of running the race weekend, a concern punctuated by last month’s bomb blasts at the Boston Marathon. “Our event now is public enough that we have to expect it’s possible, whether it’s an emergency of this nature (with bombs) or an emergency of lesser nature that still needs some thought process to deal with it,” says Halvorsen. For the first time, Ottawa Race Weekend officials and public responders will take part in a table-top emergency exercise, so people know how to respond if there’s an ex-

treme emergency. “We’re probably unique in the sense that we have an on-site medical team that can address a ton of medical issues,” says Halvorsen. That weekend team consists of 40 doctors and 150 nurses from the Ottawa Hospital. The event also features ski patrol members on bikes and roving patrols, who pick up runners in trouble and work in collaboration with Ottawa and Gatineau paramedics, firefighters and police. There will also be signs reminding Ottawa Race Weekend participants not to leave bags unattended. There may

also be additional security at baggage checks. Meanwhile, The Tamarack Race Weekend staff continue to look for efficiencies in its operations. “We try to reuse, but we also try to improve. In the perfect world, we would do things different, but we don’t live in a perfect world,” says Halvorsen.

“We can’t close any road we want because of traffic impact. Our approach is that we see where we’d like to be. We’ve seen what the main races are like, either with Jim (Robinson) travelling to them or my running experience, so we ask how we can get there. See RACE, page 39

OTTAWA RACE WEEKEND

Connected to your community

“Milos, I am going to Break you”

Race weekend will generate $27 million in Ottawa region Continued from page 35

“An example is the marathon, which was a two-loop course for years. Both Jim and I knew no world-class marathon has a two-loop course, it just doesn’t happen, unless you’re talking the Olympics, and then it doesn’t matter because you’re only talking 60 runners. “Second of all, we have a city with a lot of tourist attractions. We are still the capital of Canada. We have a lot of national and regional monuments, whether it’s a war museum, the art gallery or Parliament Hill. So we said to ourselves, how can we make a course that incorporates as much of that as possible, still living in the context of traffic difficulties, construction, and all that kind of stuff.” BIG ECONOMIC IMPACT

Meanwhile, Halvorsen and the race weekend team continue to strive to make the course attractive to out-of-town runners, which make up about 40 per cent of entrants. Ottawa Race

Weekend also generates an economic impact of $27 million in the region. That impact is similar to what the region has experienced for such prominent events as the Juno Awards and the National Hockey League All-Star Game. “Having reached that point now, and having city and NCC (National Capital Commission) officials understand that, has been helpful for obvious reasons. The support we get now (from the city) is quite good,” says Halvorsen. “There are still some challenges once in a while, but that’s nothing unusual. “Our biggest beef (is the lack of) government grants,” adds Halvorsen. “We’re either classified as a charity, which we are not, or as a sporting event, which apparently doesn’t “get any funding, unlike other festivals that are arts-related that get funding. We’ve almost yet to receive anything.” Meanwhile, Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend can boast about being home to the largest running expo event in Canada, with more than 100 vendors for

the Thursday-through-Saturday event. On the pavement, the race schedule Saturday has the 2k at 4 p.m., 5K at 5 p.m., and 10K at around 6:30 p.m. Sunday is home to the marathon (the only Ottawa Race Weekend event with more male entrants), kids marathon (in which participants run their marathon’s last kilometre after doing the equivalent of 41 kilometres of exercise) and halfmarathon. Those start times are 7, 8 and 9 a.m. respectively. Halvorsen loves to watch the competitive elite races, but he says many non-elites also play a special role in race weekend. For example, the race director says it’s emotional seeing average runners so excited while finishing their first marathon or half-marathon, with friends and other spectators on hand. “The emotion at the finish line can be huge,” says Halvorsen. “It’s rewarding to know you played a role in that, and they’re excited and happy to do the event that you created.”

A mini-revolution is brewing in North America. The approach is called “Progressive Tennis.” It is imported from European countries such as France and Belgium where it was used to successfully develop players like Justine Henin-Hardenne and Olivier Rochus. Progressive Tennis uses a systematic progression of court sizes, balls, and racquets, to scale the game down to an appropriate level for 5-10 year olds. Modified racquets and balls are not new. The equipment has been around for a while, as has the “graduated length” concept. Coaches have used bits and pieces for years seeing the advantage from the perspective of success, fun and safety. The difference this time is that all these elements have been brought together in a much more systematic way than ever before. Tennis companies now carry the full line of half-court and ¾-court progressive equipment including graduated, balls, racquets, lay down lines and nets. The power of the progressive tennis system is that it allows players to play quickly and successfully. In Progressive Tennis, the philosophy is that tennis is a great and fun game to play and the quicker and more skillfully a player can play the more fun it is. Each stage not only has specific equipment to aid success, but particular skills to develop as well. It is recommended a Game-Based Approach be used. The coach’s job is to get them to play, and help them learn to play better. Simply put, “Progressive Tennis” is used as a developmental tool to allow young children to improve their overall tennis skills faster so they can transition to the regular court with more ease. The OTA, NCTA, City of Ottawa and all of our clubs are committed to helping you and your children play this great game. Sean Sweeney OTA Regional Chair said that: “All of us are committed to helping introduce over 25 000 new kids to the game of tennis by Dec 2013”. So, call or drop by one of our great clubs below and get started today. You too can crush Milos and his 242KM serve. Well maybe not but you can have a great time trying.

Slower Balls, Smaller Courts, Right sized Racquets” Get started today.

Tennis has changed, come see how! WHAT IS PROGRESSIVE TENNIS? • Progressive Tennis uses adjusted equipment for young participants and playing formats to match their level of play. This allows a much faster progression to truly enjoy the game. • Progressive Tennis focuses on the skill development to stimulate and maintain excitement and enjoyment. • Progressive Tennis is for ages 3 to 99+.

DID YOU KNOW? • Tennis is rapidly growing and is becoming more popular every year. Over 600,000 new players have started playing tennis since 2010 in Canada. • In Ottawa there is 1 tennis court for every 4,300 people. The National average is 1 person every 10,000. • The biggest area of tennis growth is with children under 12.

WHAT IS THE ONTARIO TENNIS ASSOCIATION? • The Ontario Tennis Association (OTA) is a non profit organization that promotes participation in tennis as part of a healthy lifestyle and encourages the pursuit of excellence for all players. • Their #1 goal is to attract more people to play and support tennis on a sustained basis. • For more information go to www.tennisontario.com

Protecting the Shoreline Mother Teresa High School

EMC news - Students from Saint Francis Xavier High School and Mother Teresa High School teamed up on May 9 to help out the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority with a shoreline naturalization project at the Stillwater Creek at the Abbott Point of Care on Moodie Drive. Students learned how to plant bare root trees and potted trees to help reduce erosion, enhance wildlife habitat, filter contaminants and slow storm water runoff. DEP teachers Justin Doyle

and Michelle O’Sullivan accompanied the students who learned about the City Stream Watch Program from Chelsey Ellis, Andrea Klymko, Meaghan McDonald, Justin Robert and Greg Melvin. Students interested in completing their community service hours should contact Ellis at citystreamwatch@rvca.ca. RVCA spends long days and many weeks on the shoreline projects and appreciates any help that volunteers can offer. The RVCA’s well-deserved motto is “Ordinary people Doing Extraordinary Things for the Environment.”

EMC news - Police are advising Ottawa residents to mind their valuables and change behaviour to prevent crimes of opportunity that may increase with warmer weather. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People spend more time outside in warm weather and that includes would-be thieves,â&#x20AC;? said Chris Rheaume, central district community inspector. Garages, sheds, homes and vehicles are frequently left unlocked and that presents the opportunity for someone to steal.â&#x20AC;? By changing your behaviour when it comes to putting valuables out of sight and locking up, you can reduce the risk of being targeted for theft. â&#x20AC;˘ Ensure your garage, shed, home and vehicle are always locked, even when you are

home. â&#x20AC;˘ Ensure car windows and doors are closed tightly and locked. â&#x20AC;˘ Park facing the street and in a well lit area so that anyone tampering with your vehicle is more noticeable. â&#x20AC;˘ Ensure that bicycles are stored out of sight and locked. â&#x20AC;˘ Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave valuables in your vehicle. Many people leave items such as personal identiďŹ cation, vehicle registration, insurance certiďŹ cates or credit cards. Which can be tempting for thieves. Even loose change can make your vehicle a target. For more crime prevention tips visit www. ottawapolice.ca.

Fundraising begins for dermatology centre at Ottawa Hospital steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - After a long, bleak winter, many Ottawans are now content to bask in the warm rays of a bright sun. While vitamin D is a wonderful thing, each year many Canadians find themselves diagnosed with skin cancer, even those who take precautions and fall outside of the common age range for the affliction. The Ottawa Hospital is hoping to become a leader in treating the many forms of skin cancer by combining all dermatology services into one location at its Civic Campus. The hospital plans to establish a melanoma rapid diagnosis and management clinic, as well as a psoriasis systemic therapy clinic, in order to reduce wait times for patients. To realize this vision, the hospital is embarking on a $3 million fundraising campaign. It kicked off the initiative with a May 16 media tour of the Parkdale Clinic’s Mohs surgical unit, guided by doctors Jim Walker and Jillian Macdonald of the Ot-

tawa Hospital’s admittedly cramped dermatology unit. “With the new Dermatology Centre of Excellence, this area would be doubled in size,” said Walker, adding, “The lab would be doubled (in size) and we’d increased from three to five surgery rooms, and increase our operation from three days a week to five days a week.” Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson is serving as honorary campaign chairman for the initiative. His involvement stems from personal experience: Watson has twice been diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma, a form of skin cancer. The first diagnosis came, oddly enough, during a health exhibition at Queen’s Park while he was serving as an MPP. “I’m very appreciative of the fact my skin cancer was caught relatively soon, but sadly there are many people in our community that don’t have that early detection and as a result are not as fortunate as I am,” said Watson. “We’re blessed in Ottawa to have some great physicians, great scientists and re-

searchers, but we need more capacity. We know that with an aging population and a growing population, plus everything from the depletion of the ozone layer and its impact on skin, that the problem will get worse before it gets better.” Watson served as a test subject while Macdonald demonstrated a routine skin exam, where doctors look for suspicious cancerous or pre-cancerous lesions. Like all cancers, early detection ensures the best possible outcome for patients. Often thought of as a worry for middle aged people and the elderly, skin cancer is fickle and doesn’t follow rigid boundaries. Ottawa resident Jessica Trotto was on hand to relate her experience with skin cancer. Trotto, a self-described “country bumpkin” who loves the sun and was a past user of tanning beds, was diagnosed with a cancerous lesion near her eye while still in her early 30s. Now 36, Trotto said she was shocked when the diagnosis of basal cell carcinoma was handed down. While

the cancer drew out her fear. “The wait is terrifying. I would have nightmares of the skin cancer growing over-

night,” said Trotto. “It’s imperative to reduce those wait times and get those people in as soon as possible.” R0012034001

Targeted rezonings appease communities Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - An effort to strike a balance between protecting community character and maintaining property owners’ rights in Old Ottawa South will set the stage for zoning reviews across the city. The first two projects for the city’s new zoning consistency team will be used as a test case to set the direction for a review of infill homes in the city’s urban neighbourhoods, set to kick off next month, said city planner Alain Miguelez, the program manager of intensification and zoning. In Old Ottawa South, a contentious plan to rezone a property at 9 Rosedale Ave. sparked a need to look at what types of buildings should be allowed to be constructed along the Rideau Canal between Bank Street and Bronson Avenue. Infill is now a significant trend and a “happy predicament” for the city, Miguelez said. The

zoning reviews for Colonel By Drive and a second pilot project review of three properties on Greenbank Road will help the city’s planning department frame how it tackles the issues on a larger scale as part of the Phase 2 infill study, Miguelez said. When it comes to Colonel By, a planning consultant found it wouldn’t do much good to downzone the area to allow less density or fewer types of homes. Instead, the consultant is recommending keeping the zoning but adding a height limit and a restrictive heritage overlay, which requires homes to be built in a compatible manner if they are demolished or destroyed by something like fire. Height limits would drop from 11 metres to nine metres, which would still allow for a threestorey home, said Nancy Meloshe, the planning consultant the city hired for the project. Only three of the existing 39 homes along that stretch are taller than nine metres. The mix of housing styles is something resi-

dents really value, and a couple people wanted to ensure the new restrictions wouldn’t prevent the construction of homes in modern architectural styles. Miguelez said keeping the more lenient zoning will allow the area to become home to more residents, which aligns with the city’s intensification goals, while encouraging the existing homes and the neighbourhood character to be retained. “It would be a disservice to those big old homes to not allow them to change with the times,” Miguelez said. The R3 zone allows for homes to be converted to contain up to four dwellings, up to 10 residents in a group home or retirement home, a duplex, townhome or semi-detached dwelling, a home-based business or diplomatic mission. The Colonel By and Greenbank zoning consistency changes will be presented to the city’s planning committee for approval on June 25. The changes will be accompanied by a related but smaller review of three properties in O T T A W A

R E G I O N A L

Knoxdale-Merivale Ward: 171, 173 and 175 Greenbank Rd. That review was initiated following the approval of a zoning amendment for 149-153 Greenbank Rd. to permit the construction of a five-storey apartment building comprising 61 units. Meloshe found that the properties are ripe for more intense development and is recommending boosting the building height limit from 10 m to 15 m, prohibiting a few uses including community centre or a drive-through and increasing the size of the backyard. The property owners are in agreement and Meloshe expects them to bring forward a plan for a retirement residence. Miguelez said what his team learned during the Colonel By zoning discussion could be applied to a broader swath of Old Ottawa South. That could come up during Phase 2 of the city’s small-scale infill homes review, which is getting underway this month and will be the topic of a public meeting in June. C A N C E R

Marathon drummers to hit race weekend Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland

EMC news - While some onlookers might only see marathon racers stretching their limbs before the big race, there will be a group of nine men also stretching in preparation for a different kind of marathon. During the Ottawa Race Weekend marathon, the Heritage Hands Ottawa Drum Club will be performing for a total of four hours on May 24 to encourage the more than 10,000 racers across the ďŹ nish line. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will be drumming until every last runner or straggler has crossed the line,â&#x20AC;? said Michel Monette, co-founder of the club. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave until everyone else is gone.â&#x20AC;? Monette and longtime friend Charles St-Jean have been drumming most of their lives, starting together in the De La Salle Cadets when the two were only 15 years-old and lived next to each other in Lowertown. In 1998, St-Jean brought some of the old drummers together for a reunion and since that meeting the group has been playing at shows and for fun in the Ottawa area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passion and friendship that keep us together,â&#x20AC;? St-Jean said. The group average age is 60, which the men joke is why they will be stretching too before the marathon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s physically demanding,â&#x20AC;? said Armand Vienneau, a drummer in the group. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It can take a lot out of you.â&#x20AC;? The group performs both old historic military

rhythms and new songs they composed together. The only drumming club of its kind in Ottawa, members from all across the city come to play with the group. Passionate about drumming, the club members say they perform more for the enjoyment than for money these days, taking gigs where they can get them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the rush,â&#x20AC;? Monette said. The group used to play before football games at Lansdowne Park and said they loved performing in front large crowds, but say their most enjoyable audience members are children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They just surround us when we play,â&#x20AC;? Vienneau said. Even though there are nine members in the group, the men say they are always looking for more experienced drummers to join. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are not getting any younger,â&#x20AC;? St-Jean said. The troop will be performing by the War Museum from 7 to 11 a.m. on May 24. For more information about the group, please visit www. heritagehandsottawa.ca.

Tanger announces initial list of stores DKNY, Nine West, Coach, Aeropostale among lineup for outlet mall

Councillor Comments By Jan Harder

Your library, the Ottawa Public Library (OPL), is the largest bilingual public library system in North America, serving more than 900,000 residents. The OPL helps build a strong, vibrant, and sustainable community by supporting literacy and life-long learning, fostering inspiration and enjoyment, and connecting people to each other and the world.

Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - The initial list of stores slated to open at a new outlet mall in Kanata were announced during a groundbreaking ceremony at the site last week. Michael Kors, DKNY, Nine West, Coach and Aeropostale were among those listed by Steven Tanger, president and CEO of Tanger Factory Outlet Centers Inc. on May 15. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is an exciting time indeed,â&#x20AC;? said Tanger, adding the outlet mall will provide a â&#x20AC;&#x153;best in classâ&#x20AC;? shopping experience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My advice to you is to get your credit cards ready,â&#x20AC;? he said. The outlet mall will feature around 70 stores in its approximately 27,900 square metres of retail space. Located off Highway 417 at Palladium Drive, Tanger Outlets is set to be completed in 2014. Tanger is investing $115 million into the Ottawa economy, said Mayor Jim Watson. Along with an investment into the local economy, the project is estimated to create around 700 jobs during the construction phase and 1,000 full-time and part-time retail jobs once the complex is complete. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are witnessing greater opportunities for consumers,â&#x20AC;? said Watson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The centre will be an attraction for tourists.â&#x20AC;?

Kettle Island most attractive bridge option Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Kettle Island has been named the technically preferred option for an new east-end interprovincial bridge. “This bridge is the most centralized in terms of where people are going, in terms of current land uses and development along that corridor,” said Eric Peissel, a consultant for Roche-Genivar Joint Venture. “Once again, this project has been ear-marked for quite some time by both sides and therefore properties and right of ways have already been preserved and doesn’t require extensive purchase of new properties and (because) of course costs of this corridor being the least expensive.” Hired by the National Capital Commission to establish which of the three locations would be the best option for a new interprovincial crossing, Roche-Genivar has been undertaking an environmental assessment for the past two years, holding public consultations, open houses, online comment forms and round table discussions to capture residents comments about a new crossing. Peissel joined the National Capital Commission’s Fred Gaspère and representatives from the ministère des Transports du Québec and the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario to make the announcement to

media on May 14. Lori Assheton-Smith from Rockcliffe Park attended a community stakeholders briefing on the evening of May 14 and news of the chosen corridor did not come as a surprise to some of the communities that have been taking part in the consultation process for the past two years. “I think it’s fair to say everyone saw it coming,” Assheton-Smith said. “When you look at any of the reports completed, I don’t think they could have reached any other conclusion.” The decision was made through two evaluation methods: a pair-wise comparison and reasoned arguments which were reviewed by an evaluation committee. Kettle Island ranked the best in traffic and transportation, natural environment, economic environment, land use and properties and costs. It ranked lower when it came to looking at the social environment and for water use and resources, including a potential risk to the Gatineau Water Treatment Plant, but the team was assured that any spills would be considered manageable. When it comes to the residents who live near Kettle Island, social environment factors are of great concern. “Residents, especially seniors and young children, will suffer serious health risks by the increased air pollution from the diesel fuel the heavy

trucks use,” said Judy Lishman, spokeswoman for the Manor Park Community Association in a press release. Upon hearing the news, OttawaVanier MPP Madeleine Meilleur said she was disappointed in the NCC’s recommendation. “The building of a bridge between Ottawa and Gatineau has been my priority for many years, but I’ve always maintained that a new bridge should not disrupt established residential neighbourhoods,” Meilleur wrote in a press release. “I will continue to fight to protect all residential neighbourhoods and to encourage better public transit to and from the city core, and I will recommend that the Ontario government not fund a bridge at Kettle Island.” BUILDING A BRIDGE

Ottawa-Orléans MP Royal Galipeau said the location of a new interprovincial bridge would go has been studied for the past 60 years with Kettle Island always being the ideal location. Although he was happy to hear the greenbelt would be saved, Galipeau did say he questions when a bridge will ever be built. While admitting there is a commitment from various levels of government to build a bridge, he said he has a hard time believing it

could get built in his lifetime. The most recent reports released by Roche-Genivar revealed a bridge would cost taxpayers $1.6 billion. The report found that Kettle Island is the most economically viable option. Assheton-Smith said she questions whether a bridge in the east end would help relieve the downtown core of trucks. She said even the NCC has admitted a new bridge will not reduce the amount of trucks downtown, but will only help disperse the projected rise in the amount of traffic. Based on projections for the year 2031, “the amount of truck traffic if we do not construct a new bridge will increase by 60 per cent on the Macdonald-Cartier Bridge,” Peissel said. “In constructing a new crossing in corridor, we are able to reduce that increase to pretty much keeping the level of truck volumes equal to what it is today. Peissel added the consulting firm did look at what would happen if they were to somehow limit the truck traffic on the Macdonald-Cartier Bridge, which resulted in more traffic being dispersed throughout the downtown bridges. “There will still be a lot of trucks in the downtown core, because that is what there destination is.” Assheton-Smith said those numbers just conclude that no bridge will reduce the amount of trucks down-

town. CONSULTATION

Residents are encouraged to attend the latest public consultation, being held in Orléans at Shenkman Arts Centre on May 27 from 5 to 9 p.m. NCC spokesman Fred Gaspère encourages the public to continue to participate. “The details are important,” Gaspère said. “We think they are terribly important now.” Those details will be the design of the bridge and mitigating factors for residents who live near the preferred route. Although the it’s the least expensive option, a new bridge at Kettle Island still carries an estimated $1 billion price tag, which Assheton-Smith said she thinks is a conservative number. “When you talk about mitigation, that number will increase. Add in whether the NCC wants to build something iconic, like what Fred (Gaspère) said last night, we could be talking closer to $2 billion,” she said. Assheton-Smith admits she is discouraged by both the consultation process and the announcement of choosing Kettle Island, she did say she will not give up trying to reverse the decision. “We will keep fighting for sure, it’s the right thing to do,” she said.

Legion looks to partner with military family resource centre Blair Edwards blair.edwards@metroland.com

EMC news - The Kanata legion is looking at partnering up with the Military Family Resource Centre, providing space for the nonprofit group for its programs and services. The resource centre wants to hold a parents’ drop-in program, starting in September, for parents serving in the military at the legion, where they can meet other military families to socialize. “It’s really important for families to have the opportunity to share experiences,” said Louise Hague, the resource centre’s executive director. The resource centre is also interested in offering a host of different programs -- ranging from activities such as scrapbooking to caregiver groups -- depending on the needs of the military community, which includes members of the military, with or without children. In return, the legion will have the chance to recruit prospective members. “It’s an opportunity for a partnership with the legion,” said Hague. Partnerships are underway between legion branches and military family resources centres across Canada. The resource centre has entered into partnerships with legions, community groups and other organizations at more than 15 locations across Ottawa and Gatineau. In Kanata, the Military Family Resource Centre runs a parent drop-in centre at the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre. Some of its programs and services include helping newly posted service men and women find child care, access to a family doctor and assistance locating schools. “I wish to God those had been around when we were servicemen,” said Harry Needham, a member of the Kanata legion. The Military Family Resource Centre offers: • Child and parent programs • Licensed child care • Licensed home child care • Family separation and reunion services • Support and counselling for operational stress injury • Second language training • Youth programs “We’re looking at expanding our programs and services throughout Ottawa, instead of just at Uplands,” said Hague. “The demand is there

“That was way to easy!”

The Kanata branch’s poppy and gaming funds have generated money for community, seniors and veterans groups for more than two decades. The legion collects between $6,000 to $7,000 every year for its gaming fund from its weekly bingos, held every Sunday from 12:30 to 3 p.m. at the legion, located at 70 Hines Rd. and from the sale of Nevada tickets. “We have donated $500 a month to charity for years,” said Needham, the chairman of the poppy and gaming trust committees. The legion also assists the community by offering non-profit groups the free use of its halls. “All these people who use our hall, 50 per cent of them the hall usages is donated to nonprofit organizations at no charge,” said John Cher, president of the legion branch. “I just clicked and saved 90%”

Training

Go!

Get back from the gym, pack your kids lunch, then think about yours… Your day is full and one way to make it simpler and healthier is to pack your whole days food to go! Think fruits, veggies, nuts and a layered salad to go! By taking whatever is in your refrigerator and creating an assembly line production, you can make a number of salads at a time and they will stay fresh for the whole week. Let your imagination go wild, grains, beans, sprouts, greens, nuts, seeds, fruit, veggies, dressings, so many possible combinations. Not only do the beans, nuts and seeds add protein, but so do sprouts. In fact, they can contain up to 35% protein. By adding sprouts to your diet you will get the necessary protein intake required by your body minus the fat, cholesterol, and calories that typically come with animal meats. Just grab and go and you are on your way out the door. Then when lunchtime hits you will be able to enjoy this feast for the eyes. Just shake and enjoy!

without. And often the hand-medown box, usually included a present for Father which made little or no sense whatsoever. Like the kimono. Father had never laid eyes on a kimono before, but he insisted on wearing it when we had neighbours in for euchre one Saturday night. Even Mother couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk him out of putting it on, but when Uncle Alec after dealing out the cards, asked Father what in tarnation he had on over his shirt and trousers, Father decided the kimono just wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for him. When Aunt Lizzie visited us in Renfrew County, she never failed to bring Father some outlandish gift, which she insisted was just what he needed. One summer it was a dress shirt with a high round celluloid collar, which Father had to wear to church the Sunday she was there. It took both Mother and Aunt Lizzie to button it around his neck, and when he got home he said his head ached and his ears were ringing.

He never wore the shirt again. I thought the small stiff straw hat with the narrow brim, and the narrow black ribbon looked much better than the big old tattered one Father wore around the farm. Aunt Lizzie bought it at Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Store in Renfrew and she never let Father forget that she had paid a whole .75 cents for it! That didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make him like it any better, especially when he saw the identical hat on a woman in the Lutheran Church one Sunday! Well, one summer, Aunt Lizzie arrived, and as usual, the house was in a turmoil. She re-arranged the furniture without even an if-you-please to Mother, all of which was promptly moved back where it belonged the minute the train left Renfrew station. That year, Aunt Lizzie told Father that she wanted to go into Renfrew to do some shopping for him, as what she had in mind was too bulky to pack in her cow-hide suitcases.

atherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sister Aunt Lizzie, very wealthy we thought, lived in Regina and once a year she came out to the homestead in Renfrew County, just to check up on her only brother, and as Mother said, to make sure the farm hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t slipped into the Bonnechere River. Aunt Lizzie didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think Mother was good farm material. She thought anyone who had lived most of her life in New York City, certainly wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t amount a hill of beans in the backwoods of Renfrew County! Every time she came to visit, the house was in turmoil. Everything had to be scrubbed within an inch of its life, and my sister Audrey and I had to give up our bed and the little washstand we shared at the top of the stairs. Even the top had to be cleared off, so my collection of little stones I cherished... small little stones I picked up on the farm and which I loved dearly, had to be put in a little paper bag and tucked away for keeping in a safe place. Audreyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hand mirror and comb, too, had to ďŹ nd a new home for Aunt Lizzieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visit.

Father preferred worn work boots to fancy dress shoes Continued from page 64

Father wasn’t too pleased, but Mother told him to get it over with... there would be no living with his sister until she had her way. And off they went in the Model T on the Saturday. I couldn’t wait to see what Aunt Lizzie had in mind for Father. When they got home, Father was like a thunder cloud, changed into his bib overalls and headed for the barn.

Aunt Lizzie came in with a shoe box under her arm. She opened it on the kitchen table, and there was a pair of men’s shoes the like of which I had never seen before. They were black shiny patent leather, with white leather insets under the laces, and the toes were so pointed, Emerson said you could kick the eyes out of a snake at 50 paces! Aunt Lizzie insisted Father wear

them to church the next day, which he did with great reluctance, but the minute he got home, they were exchanged for his black well-worn work boots. Aunt Lizzie said he should wear them all day to break them in. Father sat and looked at the shoes for the longest time, and I could tell he was thinking long and hard. He put the new shoes back on and headed for the barn to do the Sunday night chores.

When he came in for supper, you wouldn’t recognize the new black and white leather shoes. They were covered with manure, grass and mud, and you couldn’t tell where the white insets started and the black toes began. Even Father’s socks were ready for the Monday washing! I knew without question, Father who was meticulous about both himself and the barns, had deliberately ruined the shoes.

Aunt Lizzie flew into a fit, grabbed the shoes and went out to the rain barrel with a whisk and a rag. She agreed then they should only be worn to church on Sunday. Her train left before the week was out, and she wasn’t around to see if Father was in his new shoes at the Lutheran Church. Like the kimono, the shirt with the celluloid collar, and the straw hat, the shoes vanished, never to be seen again on the farm at Northcote.

Kiwanis help with early autism research py to help expand these efforts.” QuickStart was founded in 2008 by Suzanne Jacobson, who saw the impact of autism firsthand when both of her grandsons were diagnosed with the disorder. She partnered with the Ottawa Children’s Treatment Centre to create the first pre-diagnosis clinic in Canada. Through QuickStart, children and their families can now receive free support services even before an autism diagnosis. Experts agree that addressing symptoms as early as possible is crucial to help prevent developmental regression. “Right here in Ottawa, over 300

children are diagnosed with autism each year,” Jacobson said. “Due to waiting lists that are measured in years, children are missing out on the optimum time to receive intervention. Waiting severely limits the child’s ability to develop to their full potential.” Autism is a complex developmental disability that impacts the typical development of the brain in the areas of social interaction and communication skills. In North America, one in 88 newborns is diagnosed with autism. QuickStart’s new treatment program, KickStart, will not only help
