EMC news - The sale of the Nepean property belonging to the debt-ridden Canadian Montessori Academy may have fallen through. The former school – at 70 Fieldrow St. – was placed into receivership by an Ontario court in July in an effort to collect debts totalling more than $1.9 million. The debts were owed to the City of Ottawa, the Canada Revenue Agency and the Business Development Bank of Canada, along with a number of parents who had prepaid tuition to the school for the 2012-13 school year. The court appointed receiver, BDO Canada Limited, was trying to sell the property to pay off the debt.

BDO announced in September that it had entered into a purchase and sale agreement with the World Somali Congress. The letter also stated the congress would operate a school out of the existing building and would be leasing the space until the court approved the sale. But creditors may have longer to wait said former CMA parent Jackie Properzi. See NO COMMENTS, page 5

Jerome (Jerry) Jodoin, pictured with his wife Fran in this photo taken on his 87th birthday, will be honoured with a street named after him in Orléans.

Jodoin nominated for street naming by legion members Continued from page 1

Jodoin’s widow Fran said fellow legion member Gus Este nominated her husband. “We (the family) were very proud and I am sure Jerry would have been honoured,” Fran said. Members of the Barrhaven Legion submitted Jodoin’s name to the city’s commemorative naming committee after the Second World War veteran

passed away in 2011. Jodoin, who served with the Navy on HMCS Uganda, is one of the few Canadians who have travelled on Canada’s three neighbouring oceans – the Atlantic, the Pacific and the Arctic. Fran said Jodoin stayed on for a tour of the Pacific in 1945, and then came home to work for Canada Post and later owned his own company. Following his death from

pneumonia-related complications in February 2011, Este called Jodoin a Canadian hero. He was well known for his quick smile and bright blue eyes. He was also known as a dedicated volunteer and fundraiser, often willing to dig into his own pockets for a good cause. “He was very proud of his work with the legion,” Fran said.

Patients spending less time in the emergency room: Ottawa Centre MPP

SIGN UP &

WIN

Eddie Rwema eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC news - Emergency room wait times at Ottawaarea hospitals have gone down over the past four years. Wait times across the province have been reduced on average by 1.2 hours, and 86 per cent of patients are receiving treatment within target time frames, according to a press release from the Ontario government. In Ottawa, between 70 and 94 per cent of patients are assessed and treated within the target wait time.

In 2009, Ontario set emergency room length-of-stay targets of four hours for patients with minor conditions and eight hours for patients with complex conditions. At CHEO, time spent in the emergency department has decreased by 27.6 per cent over the last four years, the release said. About 94 per cent of people received treatment within the target period. Yasir Naqvi, MPP for Ottawa Centre, said CHEO’s emergency room is making good progress in improving performance so they can treat patients better and

faster. “I am proud of what our government is doing to help them (CHEO) keep achieving their goals,” said Naqvi. Other hospitals in Ottawa have also seen a significant decrease in wait times. At the Monfort Hospital, time spent in the emergency room has decreased by 52.6 per cent, 19 per cent at the Ottawa Hospital’s General campus and 7.4 per cent at the Queensway-Carleton Hospital. On Nov. 16, Naqvi announced the province will provide area hospitals with $6.5 million to improve

emergency room performance, adding that the government was building on its emergency room success to support hospitals facing the biggest challenges. According to Deb Matthews, minister of Health and Long-Term Care, Ontarians requiring medical attention are now being seen faster and spending less time in emergency rooms. “This is part of our commitment in the Action Plan for Health Care to ensure people receive the right care, in the right place, at the right time,” Matthews said in a press release.

BRIDGING COMMUNITIES Ward 22 Update

Landscaping company pays it forward jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

EMC news - When Grant Van den heuvel started his landscaping company, Ace of Blades, 10 years ago one of the first contracts was with the Ottawa Carleton Association for Persons with Development Disabilities. So when he thought about paying it forward, it’s natural that he would want to help the charity that gave the company its start. The purpose of OCAPDD is to support community integration and personal wellbeing for children and adults with developmental disabilities. They operate several group homes across the city, including one on the property of Silver Spring Farm on Richmond Road, near Bells Corners. “I saw something on the Internet about some guy in Portland who was paying it forward by maintaining a gym anyone

could use,� Van den heuvel said. “People were able to use it for free because of donations and it gave me the idea to raise money for something here that helps people.� The 23-year-old entrepreneur said the reason he chose OCAPDD is because they helped out Ace of Blades. This fall all the landscaping staff volunteered their time selling pumpkins door to door in Barrhaven – where most of the company’s client base lives. The pumpkins, donated by Miller Farm and Saunders Farm, were sold at $6 or $8 apiece and netted $3,000 for the charity. Van den heuvel said he would have liked to get more pumpkins but farmers who were hit by this summer’s drought weren’t able to donate. He said he hopes to raise more money next fall. “We want to get the message across that people should wait for us to get their

pumpkins from us,� Van den heuvel said. “It ends up being the same price as from the store and they help a worthy cause.� Founded in 1956, the OCAPDD of today has its roots in the vision of a small group of parents who knew there was a lack of available services for adults with developmental disabilities. INDEPENDENCE

OCAPDD’s management team overseas the operation of several residences, day programs and support services, whicah are staffed by several hundred full-time and part-time employees who support individuals living in family settings or independently. The organization relies heavily on donations, and an annual garlic sale and fundraiser to fund the work it does. To learn more about the OCAPDD visit www. ocapdd.on.ca.

SCHOOL NAMED

The name of the school that was destined for the former Montessori site was never stated in court, nor was it made available by BDO, but École Islamique Ibn Batouta, a francophone Islamic school, shares an address with the World Somali Congress on the Industry Canada’s website. The school also identifies Abdillahi Ahmed as a member of the school’s board of directors and he is listed as a director with the World Somali Congress. When contacted in September Ahmed refused comment. “We are very busy at the moment, when

In my years as a councillor, I have met veterans who are unaware that they may be eligible for programs such as pensions, allowances, and home visits. As well, the city has the means to help to connect homeless veterans to support and beneďŹ ts from the federal government and Royal Canadian Legion. I think it is important to honour and remember the efforts and sacriďŹ ces of our veterans year round, and believe that introducing them to the programs and services already available to them is the ďŹ rst step to showing our continued appreciation.

ready someone from our group will contact you,� he wrote in an email. Ahmed was contacted again on Nov. 8 about the status of the sale but didn’t respond before the paper’s deadline. Following the court proceedings last month, BDO said if the sale goes through and funds are distributed to the secured creditors, BDO planned to file for bankruptcy on behalf of CMA. At that point, parents, teachers and other unsecured creditors will be able to file claims, and the remaining money from the land sale would be distributed evenly amongst the unsecured creditors. But without a sale it’s unclear when creditors will see any cash. The amount owed climbs each day as interest accumulates. With files from Laura Mueller

CITY HONOURS ONE OF OUR OWN HEROES A new city street will be named in honour of Barrhaven Veteran Jerome Jodoin. Jerry had a proud history as a member of the Royal Canadian Navy, where he served during WWll. I knew Jerry personally and he was a much-decorated serviceman, a great Comrade and proud member of the RCL Barrhaven Branch 641. Mr. Jodoin passed away in 2011. Lest we forget. ENTREPRENEURSHIP WEEK I was pleased to proclaim Entrepreneurship Week in the City of Ottawa as part of the global celebrations. Global Entrepreneurship Week highlights the signiďŹ cance of entrepreneurs and the contributions they make by turning ideas into business opportunities, economic growth, jobs and the improvement of society as a whole. As many residents may know, I have been involved in a number of key economic development initiatives for the City of Ottawa which aims at revitalizing the City’s approach to economic development and creating a sustainable community in areas such as Barrhaven, Riverside South, and Findlay Creek. If there are any young entrepreneurs out there who are in need of assistance I would encourage you to get in touch with Invest Ottawa and take advantage of the services that they have to offer. BUDGET 2013 I would like to thank all the residents who made it out to the City’s various Budget 2013 consultations. This was one of the initial steps in the budget process as we move towards a ďŹ nalized budget. Over the coming weeks, I will be reviewing the budget in great detail and will be looking to the community for your feedback.

Ottawa’s Health is in Your Hands.

Get Your Flu Vaccine. Each year, 5-10% of Canadians are affected by influenza, or what is commonly referred to as “the flu”. This disease causes missed days at school and work, and may require increased visits to the hospitals. The Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care offers influenza vaccines at no cost to everyone who is six months of age and older and who lives, works or attends school in Ontario. Influenza can be a serious respiratory disease - not to be confused with the common cold. Influenza spreads rapidly through sneezing and coughing and through direct contact with objects that have come into contact with the virus. Symptoms include fever, headache, cough, aches and extreme fatigue. Weakness can be moderate to severe and last up to one month. Children and seniors are most at risk of getting influenza. Complications include pneumonia and/or worsening of medical conditions. The most effective way to avoid getting the flu is to be vaccinated. Each year, the World Health Organization (WHO)

recommends which strains of influenza should be included in the vaccine. It is very safe and cannot give you the flu because the vaccine contains only dead virus. The most common side effect is a sore arm for one or two days. Some people develop a fever and muscle aches. These symptoms are usually mild and can easily be managed with rest, extra fluids and mild pain medication. It takes about two weeks after receiving the vaccine to be protected against influenza. To remain protected, you need to get vaccinated every year. While children and seniors are most at risk of getting the flu, healthy people should also get the vaccine to protect themselves and those who are at risk in the community. The vaccine is safe for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Children under nine years old need two doses, given at least four weeks apart, if they have not had an influenza vaccine before. Ottawa Public Health offers influenza vaccine clinics all over the city. For clinic details, visit ottawa.ca/flu or contact

Ottawa Public Health Information at 613-580-6744. The influenza vaccine is also available through physician offices and some pharmacies.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a chicken-and-egg problem, he said. The councillor has chosen the correct metaphor, but drawn the wrong conclusion. If council wants to encourage business development in the city, it should provide good transit and infrastructure, build communities that

allow residents to live, work and play without a commute. That doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean forfeiting $20 million in potential tax revenue. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s property tax money which should help the city pay for services and infrastructure in the area. Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $20-million plan offers a temporary tax deferral, but no other tangible and permanent inducements that businesses value. If the city wants to encourage economic development in

the east end, it should consider fast-tracking construction of light rail to OrlĂŠans. The pilot program put before council last week was light on details. There was no accompanying eligibility criteria â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just the names OrlĂŠans and Carling Avenue. The project was snuck in front of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finance committee, buried in a mound of other reports. Using Bloessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; chickenand-egg analogy, which

should come first? A decision to forfeit $20 million in property taxes or a sound plan based on study and sober discussion? To be fair, council has done a lot to encourage economic development in Ottawa this term. It transformed OCRI into Invest Ottawa and created a plan to encourage entrepreneurship. But over the past two weeks it has come up with two ill-conceived and unfair

economic development plans. Last week, council agreed to offer special treatment to larger businesses that set up shop in Ottawa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; basically putting small businesses at a comparative disadvantage. Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tax holiday has the same effect, pitting ward against ward. A plan that bribes businesses to locate in a particular ward is unfair, unwise and ill-conceived. Coun. Diane Deans called the plan the start of a slippery slope, suggesting economic development should be market driven. Taxpayers would likely agree.

War against progress continues CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

T

he pace of change is exhausting. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re changing the passport, changing the $20 bill, closing the ServiceOntario machines and starting Christmas music later at Shoppers Drug Mart. So much to learn, so little time. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s start with the last one. An unanticipated wave of common sense swept over the business community, resulting in a decision by a major retail chain to hold off on the Christmas music until at least after Remembrance Day. You might not even have noticed that it was missing in the days after Halloween. But maybe you did. Maybe you were walking through the drugstore with an odd little feeling that something was just a bit off. Then you realized, right there in the razor blades aisle, that the song playing was Raindrops Are Falling on My Head, not Jingle Bell Rock. Somehow you resisted the urge to complain. When you learned the reason why, you might even have applauded. Christmas music, particularly the cheery commercial kind, can wait until after we have had time to think about the costs and sacrifices of war. Who knows, maybe the idea will catch on, more businesses will adopt this practice next year and we can be spared Frosty the Snow Man until there is actual frost. Meanwhile, there are gains and losses in the war against technology. Example: fancy new passports coming which will

be full of iconic Canadian images and iconic Canadian politicians, not all of them Conservative. The passports will also have the inevitable chip in them, electronic rather than edible. The chip will have an antenna, which isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as alarming as it sounds. You can still put it in your pocket, but you can also wave it at a scanner which will then know everything about you. Apparently the scanner wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know more about you than a person could, from reading whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s printed on the passport, but in our society we now like our machines to know as much as possible. People less so. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why the Ontario government put machines in most of the shopping centres, allowing you to do such things as renew your car registration without having to be in contact with a human being. Those machines were actually quite efficient and enabled you to skip long lineups. For some reason there werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t long line-ups at the machines. The lack of a lineup might have been due to more people doing their government business online. Still, it is worth keeping in mind that when you deal with a human being rather than a machine you might be helping human beings stay employed. Speaking of which â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and apologies for the lame transition â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Queen Elizabeth is more fully employed on the new $20 bill than she was on the old one. The bill, issued last week, has her image on it three times, compared to the old billâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the big portrait on the front of the bill and smaller images peering out from those metallic strips front and back. On the new $50, which was issued in March, the three images are of Mackenzie King, so this one is definitely an improvement. Six Queens will get you a new passport, which you can wave at a scanner and it will know everything about you. Is life great or what?

Breaking the debt cycle no easy task

I

f you’re in debt, you’ll probably read this headline, turn the page and go Christmas shopping at the mall with your credit card. It’s human instinct to ignore things that make us uncomfortable. Moreover, our imperfect psychology often leads us to do precisely the opposite of what we should. It’s the reason those disturbing Health Canada ads on cigarette packs make addicts smoke more. It’s the reason we fail to read the calorie count on the pack of a two-bite brownie before taking 10 bites and it’s why we turn the channel off when we see those infomercials about children starving in Africa and head to the local Chinese food buffet instead.

A NATION IN DEBT

But we are a nation in debt. And chances are, even if you’ve managed to read this far, you are carrying some sort of debt. So please, read on. In mid-October, the average debt-to-income ratio of Canadian households hit an all-time high of 163 per cent. That means for every dollar we earn in a year, we owe

an average of $1.63. To put it simply, if your household income is $100,000 and you carry a mortgage of $163,000, or if your household income is $50,000 and you owe $81,500 on your credit card and loans, you fit the debt profile of the average Canadian. As a result of this news, finance ministers across the country went all nanny-state on us: “What’s wrong with you people? Get your fiscal houses in order.” Indeed, every few weeks or so, federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty finds it prudent to stand behind a podium to at some posh event and collectively slap the wrists of Canadians for being so careless with their funds. But he’s hardly leading by example. Despite inheriting a massive surplus from his Liberal predecessors, Flaherty’s government racked up the biggest

Has it always been this way? I don’t know. Part of the problem is that numbers like that 163 per cent are relatively meaningless to most of us. And we are not wired to think about the future value of money. A more simple fix is to think about money this way: What comes in each month must be greater than what goes out. Chances are if you’re in debt, you didn’t read past the first sentence of this column. But if you’ve made it this far, I’d like to offer up the first step to ending the cycle of debt: Keep your receipts ... for everything.

deficit in Canadian history in a move to – guess what? -- boost consumer spending in the wake of the recession. In other words, governments

ments like to couch their overspending in terms like “investing for the future.” The problem is the future never comes, so they just leave mammoth debt balances for the next generation without any accountability whatsoever. As a result -- for governments and the citizens they govern -- money has taken on a rather mythical quality. We live in a time where the value of money has become meaningless for most people. With credit readily available, most mid-thirties professionals I know carry student loans in the tens of thousands of dollars, along with mortgages and lines of credit balances. And frankly, they don’t give a damn as they hand over their gold cards to “pay” for that delectably over-priced glass of red wine at after-work drinks. Because they have lost any sense of reality as it pertains to the value of a dollar.

EMC news - A “rink of dreams” in Jules Morin Park is set to become a reality. The plan for a new, National Hockey League-sized outdoor rink in the Lowertown park has been in the works since early 2011, when the Ottawa Senators Foundation announced its intention to help build the community rinks. Now, the city has committed to the program by putting $200,000 in management costs towards helping the foundation develop a number of the rinks around the city. In addition to Lowertown, the foundation is already looking at other areas like Bayshore, Overbrook/McArthur, Ledbury Park (Herongate/ Ridgemont), Centretown, Navan and Cumberland. Work on Jules Morin Park is already underway and is expected to continue into the new year. The upgrades will include an asphalt base with paint markings, rink boards, endzone fencing and nets. In the summer, the court lines painted on the asphalt could be used for other sports such as basketball, lacrosse and ball hockey. The foundation expects it will cost $250,000 to build each rink. That would mean a total of $2 million in new park infrastructure, so the city’s contribution of $200,000 represents 10 per cent of that commitment. Contributing that money is part of the foundation’s goal of promoting physical activity, recreation and social development in local communities, according to a city report. “Those kids in those neighbourhoods, they really don’t have a lot of additional funding within their families to get out and participate in sport and reaction opportunities,” Danielle Robinson, president of the foundation, said last year. “The idea around this is to provide a facility and the resources to make it much more accessible.” The city hopes to partner with other local organizations, such as Canadian Tire’s I Love to Play Hockey and I Love to Skate initiatives, to offer programs, lessons and special events such as tournaments and carnivals at the new rinks. Special events involving the Ottawa Senators are also planned, including visits from the players, skating and hockey events, clinics and practices. The community rinks are the second part of the foundation’s Rink of Dreams project, which began with a $2-million refrigerated rink at city hall. The city contributed $250,000 towards building that rink. The community rinks will not be refrigerated.

Labour Relations I wanted to bring you up to date on the labour relations situation at the school district. As you know, the collective agreements with all of our bargaining units expired on August 31, 2012. The Ottawa Carleton District School Board has been negotiating with our unions locally in hopes of having a new agreement in place by the legislated deadline of December 31, 2012. We continue to work hard in this regard. However, it is important to note that while the legislated deadline for negotiating new agreements is December 31, six of our nine bargaining units will be in a legal strike position effective November 12. If an agreement is not reached by November 12, either provincially or locally, there is the possibility of service withdrawal. Although this can take many forms, it would be prudent for parents to start thinking about their child care arrangements in the event that we find ourselves in a situation where schools must close during periods of labour disruption.

Amber ale nets Kichesippi beer a gold medal World Beer Championships earns local brewery an award for beer named for the year Ottawa became the capital Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - An Ottawabased brewery is basking in the rich, amber glow of success after winning a gold medal at the 2012 World Beer

Championships. Kichesippi Beer Company’s 1855 brew took the top position in the amber ale category at the annual event, held in Chicago last month. The name of the beer pays tribute to the national capital;

1855 being the year Ottawa was incorporated as a city, shedding its original name of Bytown. The award is a major feather in the cap of the Kichesippi brewery. After less than three years in business, it has al-

ready amassed considerable acclaim for its original brew, Natural Blonde. That beer took home bronze in the World Beer Championships’ golden ale category, having also won bronze at the Canadian Brewing Awards held in June. “You’re up against a category at the championships,” said co-owner Paul Meek. “When your product scores 90 to 94 points, that’s considered gold. Over 95 is considered platinum, though they’ve only ever awarded three platinums. This year, we were the only beer to hit gold in the amber ale category.” The 1855 brew was created as a one-off batch to celebrate Kichesippi’s first anniversary on April 29, 2011. However, those who tasted it liked it a lot and the crew at Kichesippi realized they had a winner on their hands. “It quickly took off,” ex-

plained Meek. “People liked it, and we made it a full-time beer. Our customers have also said how much they like it, so we decided to take it for a spin at the Championships.” Kichesippi’s birth in 2010 heralded the arrival of a local brewing scene in the Ottawa area, with other locally-produced and local-themed beers soon entering the market. Clearly the time was right to start up a brewery, as consumers’ taste buds were beginning to yearn for something new and adventurous, not just the same-old, same-old. The fact the beer is made in Ottawa holds extra appeal for many beer fans. “Canadians enjoy their beer, but in the end they don’t know as much about beer as they’d like to,” said Meek. “Customers are more interested in beer if it’s explained

to them.” A little knowledge – such as the fact a dark beer (like 1855) needn’t be heavy and unrefreshing – goes a long way in stopping beer drinkers from avoiding brews they fear they might not like. “With 1855…we wanted to show people a dark beer doesn’t have to be heavy. A dark beer can still have nutty and sweet aspects to it and still be refreshing,” said Meek. Currently, Kichesippi products can be found at 120 restaurants and bars in the greater Ottawa area and in 35 provincial liquor stores. The game plan going forward for Meek and the 10 other employees is to continue increasing the presence of 1855 on the local market. “If a customer is willing to give us a tap, we want to make sure they’re taken care of,” said Meek.

Braced, the story of New York teen Rebecca Steeleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trials with scoliosis, will hit the stage at Longfields-Davidson Heights Secondary School on Nov. 30.

Braced to hit stage in Barrhaven Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

EMC news - Audiences in Barrhaven can brace themselves for a special performance: a one-woman play about a young girl faced with scoliosis. The play, entitled Brace, is the story of Rebecca Steele who plays a dozen characters to portray her experiences as an adolescent with the disease that causes an abnormal curvature of the spine. Thanks to the Curvy Girls chapter in Ottawa, the play will hit the stage at LongďŹ elds-Davidson Heights Secondary School on Nov. 30. The Ottawa Chapter of the Curvy Girls was founded in part by Merivale High School student Danielle Denisko. The group meets once a month to discuss everything from what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like to wear a hard,

plastic brace to medical appointments, surgery and peer pressure. Andrea Lebel, a physiotherapist who went into the ďŹ eld because she dealt with scoliosis as a teen, said the idea for the group came after she met a mother in Barcelona. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Her daughter was part of the Long Island Curvy Girls and she talked so much about the beneďŹ ts, I realized it would be good if the girls could get support from each other,â&#x20AC;? Lebel said. Because of the success of the Curvy Girls group for teens, there will now be a support group for adults. The play Braced will be shown to LDHSS students and is open to the general public at St. Theresa Hall on Somerset Street West on Dec. 2 at 4 p.m. The public showing is meant to help raise awareness about the disease that Lebel says is as

common as asthma. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have scoliosis screening here in Canada,â&#x20AC;? she said, adding that means the diagnosis often comes too late for corrective measures like a brace. When that happens, surgery is often the only option. Lebel said the group has already started work on a fundraiser in June and a fashion show for the spring, but the play will provide the public with information about signs and treatment. At the Dec. 2 show there will be pamphlets for the public to learn about some of the signs associated with scoliosis. There is no charge for the tickets, but people are encouraged to bring a donation which will help purchase equipment at CHEO. Lebel said schools interested in having a performance should contact her at curvy girlsottawa@gmail.com.

City signs on to new slots contract Revenue-sharing agreement doesn’t include money from table games Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - The city stands to gain more than an extra million dollars from a new slots revenue sharing agreement with the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation. While city staff said the new money-sharing formula is simply an extension of the existing agreement the city has with OLG, at least one councillor approached it cautiously. In the context of an ongoing debate over a location for a possible new casino in Ottawa, Konxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Egli asked if approving the agreement would “box us in” for a new casino that could be located in Ottawa. The answer from the city’s top lawyer, Rick O’Connor, was no, and that satisfied the finance and economic development committee on Nov. 6. The committee unanimously

approved the agreement. One question that O’Connor couldn’t answer was how the funding formula would apply to the possible addition of table games at the city’s only current gambling facility. “If the Rideau Carleton Raceway is the proposed casino location, does this impact on our ability to gain revenue from the addition of gaming tables in addition to slot revenue?” Egli asked. While O’Connor said he didn’t know the answer yet, but would be asking OLG about that, representatives from OLG have already confirmed to media that the revenue-sharing agreement only applies to slots and money made from gaming tables would not be shared. Over the past five years, the city has received between $4.3 and $4.4 million annually from 1,250 slot machines at the Rideau Carleton Raceway. The new agreement would add $1.3 million more a year to the city’s coffers if slot revenue remains the same. The agreement means the city gets 5.25 per cent of first $65 million of net slot revenue, three per cent on next $135 million, 2.5 per cent of the next $300 million and half a per cent of the remainder of net slot revenue.

case something goes wrong with the deal and has contacts to have any house repairs done properly. Creppin doesn’t worry about the time the parade takes from his business. He still has some deals to negotiate and has 12 staff at Creppin Realty Group, including four licensed agents, to pick up the slack. “I get short-tempered and frustrated sometimes,” he said, “but I love it. I just keep trying to make the parade better and better every year. I know it’s that same old line, but I really enjoy giving something back to the community. I sell a lot of houses in Barrhaven, I make most of my money here, so it feels good to give something back.” Creppin, a member of the board of the Barrhaven Business Improvement Area, took on the parade duties when the BBIA partnered with the Barrhaven Lions six years ago to upgrade the production from a smaller afternoon version to its current evening format with 65 floats and 30,000 spectators. “It’s a good partnership,” said Creppin, “because the Lions have long experience in the technical details of putting on a parade, like float lineups, but my expertise is business and marketing.” In addition to his corporate sponsorship, Creppin has spent thousands of dollars of his own money improving parade production. He donated 11 generators and 150 chairs so no one would have to scrounge around for equipment and year before last, tired of borrowing a Santa float from the city or another community, Creppin teamed up with DeanRyan Enterprises to build a permanent Santa float for Barrhaven. “I bought a sleigh from an old guy in Cornwall,” Creppin said. “It was his grandfather’s. The sleigh had been in his family since the early 1900s and he remembers riding in that sleigh to the dentist to have a tooth pulled. The sleigh had always been painted red, so I sent it to get a fresh coat of paint and to be recovered. Then

Top-selling Barrhaven realtor Patrick Creppin spends hundreds of hours working with the Barrhaven Lions on the Santa Claus Parade, “making it better every year.” The parade leaves Strandherd Dr. and Beatrice Dr. at 5:30 p.m., Sun., Nov. 18 ending at the park-and-ride.

I spent $2,500 on a skirt for Santa’s trailer that says Merry Christmas and has candy canes on it.” Although he works hard on the parade, Creppin certainly doesn’t take all the credit. “I have really good people in place to help me,” he said, “and we couldn’t put on the parade without our sponsors and the volunteers.” Creppin would like to remind parade spectators to bring non-perishable food items or a cash donation for the Barrhaven Food Cupboard and FAMSAC (Family Services Association of Churches.)

“This year radio station Y 101 is sending three of their vehicles and volunteers wearing station jackets to help us collect the food,” said Creppin. To contact Patrick Creppin call 613-825-8802 or visit the Creppin Realty Group’s website at www.patrickcreppin.com.

Fortunately for Barrhaven and area families, the housing market is currently kind of slow, which allows Patrick Creppin more time to spend on Barrhaven’s Santa Claus Parade of Lights. Creppin, Barrhaven’s leading realtor, spends hundreds of hours every year in the months leading up to the parade registering floats, booking bands, hiring fire-eaters and jugglers, organizing volunteers, scheduling police, getting permits, assigning generators, arranging advertising, and taking care of the behind-the-scenes details that require 40-50 phone calls per day. With the Santa Claus Parade of Lights set to take off from Strandherd Dr. and Beatrice Dr. at 5:30 p.m., Sun., Nov. 18, it’s a propitious time for the real estate market to have cooled off. “Houses are sitting on the market a lot longer,” said Creppin, head of the Creppin Realty Group. “That’s because Ottawa’s a government town. The city’s got some hiring freezes on in some departments, the federal government is cutting back and as soon as anyone hears there are layoffs coming everybody hangs on to their wallets. And the U.S. economy is in a mess again.” Hard enough for an experienced realtor to sell your house, advised Creppin, definitely not the time to try selling your home on your own. “You hire a realtor for their knowledge of the market, number one, then you’re hiring them for negotiating. You need someone who knows what they’re doing, who understands what’s going on, who can put another five or ten thousand dollars in your pocket. I do it every day, 110 times a year.” The third reason, said Creppin, who has been in the business for more than 25 years, is marketing. “Look at the ads we run, the website we’ve got and we track everything so we know where the buyers are coming from,” he said. “If you try to do it yourself, what have you got, maybe a little website and a sign on the front lawn.” Plus, a real estate agent carries insurance in

Grief workshop aims to ease holiday pain emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news – Christmas is supposed to be a time for joy, celebration and family. But if you’re grieving the death of a loved one, Christmas can be one of the most difficult hurdles of the year. For two months, cheery Christmas tunes blare in every shop; advertisements promote a shop-till-you-drop mentality; and family traditions and expectations weigh heavily on the grieving person. Grief educator and life coach Ian Henderson hopes to offer some tools and techniques to survive the holidays, with his Grief and the Holidays workshop at the Metcalfe town hall on Nov. 27. The seminar is offered from 7 to 9 p.m. by Rural Ottawa South Support Services and Tubman funeral home, and is open to anyone who is grieving. Henderson said it offers a hands-on safe space where people can vent their frustrations and emotions. “Christmas is the most stressful time of the year already. But when Christmas comes and you’ve had a loss, people can’t get away from it. It’s everywhere they go and they don’t always have someone to talk to and share their feelings with,” Henderson said. He said the workshop gives people some perspective on the holiday season while they’re

grieving – particularly that they shouldn’t feel obligated to celebrate the way they used to. “You’re not the same person as you were last year, because your loved one has died. You’re not who you were and you’re not who you’re going to be, and we need to look at how to get through that,” Henderson said. That might mean putting traditions on hold. Perhaps you

don’t want to put up a Christmas tree this year, or cook a turkey, Henderson said. The people who have relied on your shortbread for the last 40 years can wait until next year, he suggested. “Grief is the most tiring thing you’ll ever have happen to you. It totally drains your energy. You may be in no way spiritually, cognitively, or physically able

to cope with the holidays this year,” he explained. “Maybe for one year you suspend some traditions. Do what you can, but do it in moderation.” To achieve this, the grieving person must manage their family’s expectations. “You need to tell (your family) what your needs are, and not feel like you have to buck up,” Henderson said. Pressure to ‘move on,’ ‘get over it’ or that your loved one ‘wouldn’t want you to cry’ can add to an already stressful time of the year, he added. Henderson said his workshop will also teach people how to give conditional answers to holiday invites, because a person who is grieving may not feel up to socializing on the day of an event. “You can say, ‘Based on how I’m feeling today I’d love to go, but there are days I may not be able to function. I may get halfway to your house and need to turn around,’” Henderson said. Henderson began offering his holiday grief workshop about three years ago, when he noticed a gap in the city’s bereavement options. He said many organizations, support groups and funeral homes offer remembrance services for families to honour their loved ones during the holiday season, but there were few to no outlets for people to share what they are going through. “The only thing missing, I thought, was no one’s getting a chance to express their frustra-

tion,” he said. “Generally if I see a hole I’ll design a workshop around it.” Henderson has been a grief educator for about six years, after graduating from the Centre for Loss in Fort Collins, Colorado. ROSSS outreach manager Terry Watson, who organized the Metcalfe event, said many of their senior clients are widowers and living on their own, making the holiday season difficult. “This is a hard topic because a lot of people don’t want to share their feelings with their children, they keep it inside,” Watson said. “So it’s a good opportunity for them to come and see what their feelings are so they can start healing.” In the end, Henderson wants his participants to walk away with a “proper perspective on expectations” for the holidays, as well as some hope. “(I want them to know) the fact that you will survive this holiday season, and know that always the anticipation is worse than the day.” Henderson will offer his workshop again on the first weekend of December, beginning at St. John’s Anglican Church on Sandhill Road in Kanata from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Dec. 1. He will be at the St. John’s Anglican Church on Fowler Street in Richmond on Sunday, Dec. 2 from 2 to 4 p.m. To contact Henderson or for more information, email info@ griefsupportottawa.ca.

Community-based health gets funding

Supporting Volunteerism This time of year offers each of us a chance to stop and think about how we can improve our communities through volunteerism. Dedicated and passionate volunteers are often at the forefront of the work being done to address serious issues such as poverty, homelessness, and health and wellness. According to Statistics Canada, nearly 13.3 million Canadians volunteered over 2.1 billion hours in 2010. Volunteer Canada estimates that volunteers’ contributions to the Canadian economy are valued at $14 billion per year. Volunteers not only strengthen the organizations they assist, but their positive contributions are felt widely by Canadian society as a whole, and of course the people they volunteer with directly. Volunteerism is a means to build community by enhancing social networks and allowing volunteers to gain valuable skills and knowledge that can be used beyond the volunteer sector. During major crises in our country, volunteers have often been the first to step in and help those in need. Recently, I was delighted to recognize 30 active Canadian volunteers through the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medal, including 11 recipients from the Westboro/ Wellington Street West/Somerset Street West area. The recipients’ hard work has greatly impacted Ottawa Centre and Canada in areas such as encouraging greater civic participation of youth, support to veterans, promotion of sustainable living, and peace building.

EMC news - Health care in the Ottawa area is about to get a $11.1 million boost aimed at community-level services. The money is meant to address the increased need for home support services due to the aging population and the many health issues that come with it. As well, attention will be paid to those with mental health and addiction issues. The announcement by the Champlain Local Health Integration Network, which is funded through the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-term Care, was made at the offices of VHA Health and Home Support – one of the many local providers that will see a financial boost. Calling it “wonderful news,” Champlain LHIN chief executive officer Chantale LeClerc said: “Today’s announcement is about transforming health care as we know it.” The $11.1 million in funding will carry over annually and is expected to reduce pressure on hospitals in terms of wait times and available beds. The Ontario government estimates that the number of residents over age 65 will double within 20 years. LeClerc said the funding will allow 3,000 more people to be served by community-level health services in the Ottawa region and an enable providers to offer an additional 65,000 hours of health service. “As a former home-visiting nurse, I’ve had the privilege of witnessing how valuable these services are to people,” said LeClerc. “It makes the difference between going to the hospital and being able to stay in your own home.” NEED EXISTS

Ottawa-Orleans MPP Phil McNeely, parliamentary assistant to Health Minister Deb Matthews, mentioned the “pressing need to find and support new ways of delivering health care,” citing the need to make the tax dollars of Ontario residents go further in this regard. This view was echoed by Ottawa-Centre MPP Yasir Naqvi, who was on hand for the announcement. The largest portion of the funding, $7.15 million, will go towards the Champlain Community Care Access Centre, which

Champlain LHIN CEO Chantale LeClerc announces new funding for community-level health services in Ottawa on Nov. 7. helps seniors transition from a hospital to their home through a variety of supports. The remaining funds will be divided amongst a long list of seniors’ service providers, disability support providers, addiction treatment centres and mental health centres and programs stretching from Hawkesbury to Barry’s Bay. Valerie Bishop, executive director of VHA Health and Home Support, spoke of the fear felt not just by the elderly faced with health issues, but by their middleaged children. “When suddenly you can’t perform (the basics of domestic living) and have a whole number of obstacles to overcome, your independence is threatened,” said Bishop. “As a daughter of aging parents, their health and happiness is a constant concern.” To illustrate the impact such services can have on a real family, Gweneth Gowenlock of Mechanicsville spoke of

EMC news – The Barrhaven Lions Club is helping grieving families remember their children thanks to a memory box program in affiliation with CHEO. The memory boxes provide keepsakes for parents who have lost infants through stillbirth or very early in their life. The boxes, manufactured locally allow the parents to place keepsakes to help them remember their child. In two years the Lions Club has donated 76 boxes to CHEO. Lion Doreen Lebano said she was especially supportive of any programs at CHEO following the treatment of her youngest grandson when he

was just four weeks old. “When we were approached we thought it was a wonderful opportunity to help families through a very difficult time,” she said. Each box is specially handcrafted for the family. Lebano said it gives dignity to the death of a child and helps parents, siblings and relatives to grieve and to heal. “It represents something tangible for loved ones to treasure and to share with others,” she said. Now the Lions Club is looking to the community for help. They will host a family bowling fun day at the Merivale Bowling Centre on Merivale Road south of Hunt Club Road.

City to fast track some new businesses Job creation program should apply to all businesses: deputy mayor Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Mayor Jim Watson announced two new projects aimed at boosting private sector jobs in Ottawa last week. One of the ideas, called the Capital Investment Track, would see the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic development staff â&#x20AC;&#x153;shepherdâ&#x20AC;? all the permits and applications they need to fast-track their entry into the Ottawa market. New businesses looking to come to Ottawa or local businesses that want to expand would qualify if they offer the potential to create or retain 100 or more jobs, or if the industry is considered to be one of the priority sectors outlined in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic development strategy: life sciences, photonics, wireless, â&#x20AC;&#x153;clean tech,â&#x20AC;? aerospace and defence, film/television/digital media and tourism. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Through this program, the city will select projects, investments or developments based on their potential to create at least 100 quality, wellpaying private-sector jobs to receive special attention from

the economic development department,â&#x20AC;? Watson said during his speech to the business community during the inaugural State of the Economy event at the Chateau Laurier hotel on Nov. 1. The move is aimed at cutting some red tape for some businesses, but at least one councillor thinks it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go far enough. West Carleton-March councillor and Deputy Mayor Eli El-Chantiry said the project sounds like a good idea, but said the city needs to do more to make it easier for any business to come to Ottawa and create jobs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be critical of the mayor,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What he is saying is â&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;We have to do more to draw those investments to our city and to our nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;To be honest â&#x20AC;Ś I am never comfortable with municipalities pick and choosing between companies. All the companies coming to our city creating new jobs and creating new jobs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we should welcome all of the initiatives,â&#x20AC;? El-Chantiry said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to change the way the city does business.â&#x20AC;?

LAURA MUELLER/METROLAND

Mayor Jim Watson addresses the local business community during the inaugural State of the Economy lunch at the Chateau Laurier hotel on Nov. 1. Talking to reporters after his speech, the mayor said the initiative will probably help five or six businesses a year. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the total number of businesses of that size that staff expect will approach the city each year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Given whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening with the state of our economy and the fact that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve actually seen the unemployment rate go up over the last

couple of months and we see the trend in terms of the shrinking public service, we have to be more aggressive and try a number of measures to attract more businesses to create more economic opportunities,â&#x20AC;? the mayor said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we can offer what could be considered a higher level of service that is going to attract those companies that bring jobs, then Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m all for it.â&#x20AC;?

A former small businessman himself, El-Chantiry said bureaucratic delays have an even worse impact on entrepreneurs who want to set up a small business and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something he wants to change. El-Chantiry sits on a group with economic development staff and said he is always working behind the scenes to cut red tape.

The focus on â&#x20AC;&#x153;high-paying jobsâ&#x20AC;? is also something that concerned El-Chantiry, who said Ottawa needs any and all types of jobs. But overall, El-Chantiry was just happy to see an effort being made to attract businesses, because Ottawa hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t done much in that regard in the past compared to other large cities, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have to put something on the table,â&#x20AC;? he said. The Capital Investment Track program wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cost any extra money -- the economic development department will shift around staff time to make it happen. Another announcement Watson made was the addition of a statistics and mapping tool called Locate Ottawa. The maps, which can be found at locateottawa.ca, contains information on demographics, workforce profiles and consumer expenditures for different areas of the city. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aimed at helping businesses decide the best location for them in Ottawa and highlighting development opportunities for investors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This tool makes Ottawa more accessible to the world, and the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s investors,â&#x20AC;? Watson said. It will cost the city $38,000 annually for the next three years, with an option to renew.

Fewer than 20 residents attended the west-end budget meeting, the fourth of four consultations held across the city to discuss Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s draft budget for 2013. The meeting was attended by senior staff including city manager Kent Kirkpatrick, as well as councillors Allan

R0011737766/1115

EMC news - The usual suspects turned out for the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ nal round of budget consultations at the Mlacak Centre in Kanata on Wednesday, Nov. 7. But there werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that many of them. Half the seats in the meeting hall were empty, with most of the audience made up of city staff, lobbyists and members of special interest

groups. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been about the same in other public meetings,â&#x20AC;? Mayor Jim Watson said after the eveningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s questionand-answer session wrapped up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Generally, when people feel comfortable and the budget is balanced and you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see deep cuts or big spending, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get as many people out,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a reďŹ&#x201A;ection of the fact that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve worked hard to come forward with a budget that is gener-

NOTICE OF OPEN HOUSE

Hubley, Marianne Wilkinson, Mark Taylor, Eli El-Chantiry, Scott Moffatt and Rick Chiarelli. BUDGET

The evening began with a presentation by Watson and city treasurer Marian Simulik about the draft budget, which is scheduled to go to council for a vote on Nov. 28. The suggested 2.09 per cent tax increase for the municipal tax rate is the lowest in six years and translates to a $67 hike on the average urban homeownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tax bill. For rural residents, the increase is 1.98 per cent, or $50 on an average rural homeownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is, as the mayor mentioned, the lowest tax-supported budget that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve put in front of council in some time,â&#x20AC;? she said. It also falls below the mark set by council to keep all tax increases below 2.5 per cent. Simulik said the proposed tax increase does not include consideration of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Municipality Property Assessment Corporationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reassessment of property values across the province. The city will deliver a tax policy report in April, which will adjust how much residents will pay next year. The draft budget also calls for a transit fee increase of 2.5 per cent, $3.5-million in sav-

ings through staff reductions and an $11 cut to urban residentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; garbage fee, a result of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new biweekly collection system. The city has also reduced the number of its consultants by half and frozen recreation fees. Ivan Levac, a director of the National Capital Heavy Construction Association, asked if council would introduce a one per cent capital tax levy and increase this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tax rate to 2.5 per cent, using the additional money for road repair and infrastructure renewal. Watson said the city is spending $340 million over the next three years on infrastructure through its Ottawa on the Move program â&#x20AC;&#x201C; on top of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s base infrastructure budget. The money will pay for upgrades to roads, sewers, sidewalks, culverts and cycling facilities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of this work has been delayed for a long period of time and we see from time to time infrastructure failing and as a result weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to play a little bit of catch up.â&#x20AC;? The recent sinkhole on highway 174 in OrlĂŠans shows how crucial it is to maintain infrastructure, said Watson. But the mayor refused to support a levy because he said it failed to keep the pressure on politicians to keep costs under control.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a levy, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tax â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not an optional thing.â&#x20AC;? The previous city council â&#x20AC;&#x201C; led by former mayor Larry Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien â&#x20AC;&#x201C; produced budgets with large tax hikes because it tacked items onto its wish list without making corresponding cuts, said Watson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Politicians are not good at taking money out of a budget,â&#x20AC;? he said. The city is waiting for the federal governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next round of federal infrastructure funding, said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a national problem,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a City of Ottawa problem.â&#x20AC;? Watson said the city must balance the need for infrastructure renewal in the older parts of the city with the need for expansion of roads, ďŹ re stations, libraries and other infrastructure in growth areas. Most of the other comments at the consultation either congratulated city council on suggested spending levels in the 2013 budget or offered a few helpful tweaks or suggestions. Gary Sealey, president of the Kanata Beaverbrook Community Association, suggested the city provide an online list of expenditures ward by ward. See ROAD, page 28



Barrhaven - 3C Feedermain Project (FoxďŹ eld Drive to LongďŹ elds Drive) Tuesday, November 27, 2012 5 to 7 p.m. Walter Baker Sports Centre (upper concourse area) 100, Malvern Drive Barrhaven



The City of Ottawa Infrastructure Master Plan has identiďŹ ed several inter-related water system projects for the South Urban Community (SUC). These projects are needed to meet demands associated with urban growth, and to improve the reliability of supply to both existing and future development. ReconďŹ guration of the pressure zones servicing the SUC is planned and as part of the zone reconďŹ guration, a new 610 mm watermain is required from FoxďŹ eld Drive to LongďŹ elds Drive. The proposed alignment of the watermain is as follows: Starting with a connection into the existing Barrhaven pumping station discharge pipe in the intersection of FoxďŹ eld / Holitman, the watermain will run along Holitman Drive and will then follow the footpath that connects to the transit station pedestrian tunnel. The main will then follow the City easement between Foxhill Way and the railway line, cross beneath the VIA railway and Transitway, through the new subdivision and connect into the 406 mm watermain on LongďŹ elds Drive. In order to minimize disruption to train and bus services, the portion of the watermain beneath the VIA railway line and the Transitway will be installed using a trenchless horizontal boring technique. A temporary pedestrian footpath will be installed from the transitway tunnel to Holitman Dr. to ensure that pedestrian movements to / from the transitway are not interrupted during construction. However, the grass trail along the City easement between Foxhill Way and the pedestrian tunnel will need to be temporarily closed to pedestrians during construction. The Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appointed Consultant is scheduled to complete the design by March 2013 and construction is scheduled to commence in the spring and be completed by fall 2013. This project is being planned under Schedule A+ of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment guidelines. At the open house you will be able to review the proposed plans and related objectives, provide comments and bring forth any issues that have not yet been identiďŹ ed. Representatives from the City, the consulting team and the Ward Councillor will be available to discuss the project and answer your questions. Your input is an important part of the consultation process.

Road renewal in draft budget Continued from page 26

Stittsville businessman Phil Sweetnam said the city could save money by using natural gas to power some vehicles and by making more use of LED lights. WEST DISTRICT

BLAIR EDWARDS/METROLAND

Senior city staff and west-end councillors listen to – and outnumber – members of the public during the fourth and final round of budget consultations, held at the Mlacak Centre in Kanata on Nov. 7.

Some of the highlights of the budget for the west district are: • $975,000 to fight the emerald ash borer problem. • New and expanded parks including Hidden Lakes Park, Romina Park and a new park in the village of Carp. • Road resurfacing on Bayshore Drive (between Richmond Road and Woodridge Crescent); Woodroofe Avenue (between Richmond and Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway), Kilmaurs Side Road (between Woodkilton and Dunrobin roads); Meadowlands Drive (between Woodroofe and Merivale Road.)

All of this work has been delayed for a long period of time and we see from time to time infrastructure failing and as a result we’re trying to play a little bit of catch up. MAYOR JIM WATSON

R0011741656

• Sidewalk renewal on McKitrick Drive and Fisher Avenue. • Work on implementing the West End Flood Investigation Action Plan continues with $20 million in infrastructure improvements put in place in 2013 – flowing from the 2012 budget. • Money for the Earl Grey and Kanata Centrum underpass underneath Terry Fox Drive and a new grade separated section between the Terry Fox Transitway Station in the east and Didsbury Road in the west. • Money for the design plan of the March Road parkand-ride. • $1 million for the Kizell Pond Pathway, a new trail system to be built north of the Beaver Pond. • Renewal of sections of the Ottawa-Carleton Trail, from Ashton Station to Fitzgerald Road. • Opening of the Richcraft Recreation Complex in 2013. • Introduction of an Older Adult Portal, providing online service for seniors.

Grade school students swear to stop bullying michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - A new pilot project launching at six Ottawa elementary schools aims to stop bullying in its tracks. Students gathered in Robert E. Wilson Public School’s gymnasium on Nov. 7 to participate in a new anti-bullying program where grade-4-to-6 students learned how to become leaders for their fellow kindergarten to Grade 3 schoolmates. Robert E. Wilson is the first of the six schools to launch the program. Its school resource officer, Amanda Payette, has been trained to teach the students how to stop being bullied or becoming a bully. “It teaches the older kids to be role models and gives them an important role in their school and really I think that is all kids want, to give them a sense of importance in their school and community,” Payette said. The new anti-bullying pilot program has two components. The grade-4-to-6 program is called LEADS, which stands for “look,” “explore,” “act,” “did it work” and “seek help.” This program teaches these grades to act as leaders for their younger schoolmates. The second portion of the program is WITS, which stands for “walk away,” “ignore,” “talk it out,” and “seek help.” The program is aimed at teaching children from kindergarten to Grade 3 to use their wits when dealing with a bully. Payette officially gave the younger students their WITS badges as well as taught the older students the importance of helping the younger students. “Today they are just learning about it. Over the course of the program I think they will become more and more involved in it,” Payette said. The five other schools participating are Bayshore Public School, Chapman Mills Public School, Osgoode Public School, Pinecrest Public School and Riverview Alternative School. Each month teachers and the students from both the WITS program and the LEADS program read from an anti-bullying book and follow the lesson plans provided by the program. Payette said she approached all of the 18 schools she works in to participate in the WITS program. Robert E. Wilson, which was identified by the school board as high-needs, couldn’t afford the program’s books and other materials so they were donated by the school board. Payette said she hopes this program will make a difference. “It can’t just always be about coming in after the fact, there needs to be intervention,” Payette said. “We would like them to grow up with this. We are giving them the tools to ask for help.” The assembly welcomed support from community members, including Ottawa 67’s hockey players Richard Mraz, Keegan Wilson and Mike Cajkovsky, Ottawa fire-

fighters, and police officers. “I think this program is great. It puts the children on the right track,” Wilson said. The WITS program is not new. It began in Victoria, B.C. in 1993 at Lampson Street Elementary School to provide violence prevention program for children and youth. Shortly after the WITS program was created, the founders began working on the older youth program LEADS. In 1997 a charity called Rock Solid Foundation was launched to help fund the WITS and LEADS programs. Today the program is in more than 150 schools. Payette received her program training through an online tool found on the WITS website at www.witsprogram. ca. Any teacher, parent or community member can take the online training course. Payette said she hopes the pilot project becomes a permanent one and the number of schools participating in Ottawa grows.

Ottawa’s largest singles club raised more than $1,000 for the Ottawa Humane Society on Nov. 3 during the club’s 12th Meet Your Match Singles Mixer. The annual dinner and silent auction has raised more than $13,000 since it began in 2000 and has helped many local animals with adoption, according to the Ottawa Humane Society. The Single Gourmet, a social club for professional singles looking to meet other singles in their community, has been a supporter of local charities since coming to Ottawa in the early 1980s, said owner George Esper.

Created as an innovative way to socialize without the pressure, Esper says the club is not a matchmaking service. “It is a wonderful way to meet people,” said Esper. “We simply act as the icebreaker. We try to match people by their age and create events that help people mingle. We provide a form for it – the rest is up to them.” Mary Smith, a member of Single Gourmet, said the event not only raises money for the cause, but shows people some of the animals that need homes. “Not everyone’s soul mate is a human,” said Smith. “You are more likely to visit a shelter when you have the face of an animal in need in your mind. So

we used pictures of pets up for adoption instead of table numbers to really get the faces into everyone’s thoughts.” TRADITION

With the potential to raise quite a bit of money every year, Esper said the club enjoys keeping the tradition alive. “You have a good dinner, you make good friends, and you have a good time,” said Esper. “If you meet your soul mate in the process, then you’re lucky.” For more information on future Single Gourmet events and fundraisers, visit their website at https://www.singlegourmet.ca/.

IF YOU WORK IN ONTARIO, THIS IS YOUR FIGHT. On September 11, 2012, the Ontario Liberal government passed Bill 115, the Putting Students First Act, 2012.

Bill 115 is undemocratic, unconstitutional, and unprecedented. sIt takes away the democratic rights of teachers and education professionals to bargain collectively. sIt places the government beyond the reach of the Ontario Human Rights Code, the Ontario Labour Relations Act, and even the courts. sIt takes local decision-making away from school boards and puts it in the hands of the provincial government. That’s why we’re standing against Bill 115. It sets a dangerous precedent for all Ontarians. In fact, the government has already threatened other public sector workers with similar legislation. As teachers, we teach your children to stand up for their principles. Today, we ask you to do the same.

What can you do to help? Join us in standing up for democratic rights. Let your MPP know that Bill 115 must be repealed.

Valour Road medals united at Canadian War Museum steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - Nearly a century after they were awarded, three Victoria Cross medals – the highest award for courage in the British Commonwealth – have made their way to the Canadian War Museum. The medals were awarded to three young Canadian soldiers – Sgt.-Maj. Frederick William Hall, Lt. Robert Shankland and Cpl. Lionel B. Clarke – for their bravery during some of the fiercest fighting of the First World War. What makes these medals unique among the 71 VC’s awarded during that war was that all three men lived on the same block of the same street in Winnipeg. Subject of a CBC Heritage Minute, the brave actions of the men – two of whom did not survive the war – led their community to pressure Winnipeg city council to rename Pine Street to what is now Valour Road. The medals and a synopsis of each man’s actions are now contained within the museum’s Royal Canadian Legion Hall of Honour. “We decided to put the dis-

play in this section because we’re focusing not just on the men and the medals, but also on how Winnipeg commemorated their valour,” said Mélanie Morin-Pelletier, First World War assistant-historian at the museum. “It’s a study of a city honouring its citizens.” By the outbreak of the First World War in 1914, Winnipeg had recently undergone a population boom, and many young labourers were quick to enlist for military service. Hall, born in Ireland, was a shipping clerk before enlisting at the onset of war. He was killed by rifle fire at the Second Battle of Ypres in 1915 as he left his trench to rescue a wounded comrade. Clarke, a railroad surveyor when the war broke out, singlehandedly defended a section of captured trench at the Somme front from a counterattack by 20 enemy soldiers, and was wounded in the process. He was killed by shellfire a month later, in October 1916. Shankland was a cashier at a creamery before the war. See VICTORIA, page 43

Robert Shankland all lived on the same block of that street before enlisting for military service.

Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heritage in the balance

Victoria Cross men all from same Winnipeg street

City planners invite input Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

Continued from page 41

He was commanding a company of men during the Battle of Passchendaele in October 1917 when heavy ďŹ re caused a neighbouring battalion to withdraw, leaving him and his men dangerously exposed. In order to summon reinforcements, Shankland made the dangerous journey back to Allied lines to report the situation before returning to his men to await reinforcements.He survived the war and even re-enlisted as a noncombatant ofďŹ cer during the Second World War. While the death toll on all sides during the First World War was staggering, the residents of the working-class Winnipeg neighbourhood didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want the service of their neigh-

bours to be forgotten. In 1925, the city of Winnipeg erected a plaque declaring the street would henceforth be named Valour Road. With the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War less than two years away, the new display ends a threeyear initiative by the museum to gather the Valour Road Victoria Cross medals in one place. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our collections people worked closely with the donors, making sure they were comfortable with the idea of donating the medals,â&#x20AC;? said Avra Gibbs-Lamey, media relations ofďŹ cer for the museum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The medals themselves will be lent to a Manitoba museum for the centenary in 2014, but their home is now the (Canadian) War Museum.â&#x20AC;?

EMC news - From heritage homes in the Byward Market to farmhouses in the south end, Heritage Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest forum aims to bring all of Ottawa residents together to help promote and preserve heritage in the city. Heritage Ottawa will host the 2012 Ottawa Heritage Forum on Nov. 17 at DominionChalmers Churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Woodside Hall in Centretown. This will be the second forum of its kind; the ďŹ rst was held in New Edinburgh in October 2011. The organization credits the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s desire to hold an annual heritage event to the success of that ďŹ rst meeting. Heritage Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nancy Oakley is one of the organizers for the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We realized a forum is a needed and valuable to all the

communities who participate, to share ideas and discuss heritage concerns,â&#x20AC;? Oakley said. Members of New Edinburgh Community Alliance co-hosted the event in 2011 and part of the day involved taking the participants on a walking tour. Oakley conďŹ rmed this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forum will also take a break, to walk around Centretownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heritage district. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The walk really seemed to help people get an idea of what is going on in a heritage district and that is what we hope will happen this year too,â&#x20AC;? she said. The day will be divided into three parts: guest speakers, a look at the importance of a communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role in saving heritage and table discussions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This format allows us and the participants to have a proactive approach,â&#x20AC;? Oakley said. Heritage Ottawa will also discuss issues the group has been following, which include the ďŹ ght against the National Capital Commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s desire

to demolish three homes in Lowertown, on Sussex Drive. The request to demolish those homes was recently turned down by the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planning committee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have won the battle but the war is deďŹ nitely not over,â&#x20AC;? Oakley said.

We recognize heritage is not just old buildings in the downtown core, but it is rural villages and farms. NANCY OAKLEY, HERITAGE OTTAWA

The group aims to discuss the recent win at the forum, in preparation for what NCC may do next, with the homes. RURAL FOCUS

Aside from discussing urban heritage, Oakley said one of the most important roles

at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forum will take is to ignite heritage interests across the city, beyond urban boundaries. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We recognize heritage is not just old buildings in the downtown core, but it is rural villages and farms,â&#x20AC;? Oakley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are encouraging rural residents to come out and participate too.â&#x20AC;? To entice all of Ottawa to come, the group has invited a wide range of individuals, museums representatives and community associations. Representatives from Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mill in Manotick and from the Diefenbunker in Carp will speak on the importance of community engagement and partnerships. One of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planners will discuss Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s system of heritage conservation and appreciation. Community associations from the Glebe, Dalhousie, Briarcliffe, Old Ottawa South and Lowertown will present issues from their respective neighbourhoods. See FORUM, page 44

Ottawa-area residents attend Heritage Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first forum in New Edinburgh at St. Bartholomewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Church in October 2011.

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Raya Fatah

Forum hoping to grow heritage interest The table discussions will allow residents to break down topics on heritage, including possible solutions and ideas. The ultimate goal, Oakley added, will be to have the forum grow in both numbers

and interest from community associations across the city and Ottawa Valley. For heritage junkies who are unable to attend, Oakley said Heritage Ottawa will write up a full report for its website, a few weeks after Nov. 17. Following the trend of this

yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forum and 2011â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Oakley said the group will pair up with a different community each year. The Lowertown Community Association is slated to co-host the 2013 forum. Those interested in partici-

pating in future forums, promoting heritage or becoming a Heritage Ottawa heritage keeper, can email info@heritageottawa.org. To learn more about the forum or to RSVP, drop a line to heritageforumottawa@gmail.com.

Neighbourhood bargains, with a twist Your Friendly Dollar Store is the newest tenant at Greenbank Hunt Club Centre, filling a gap for every day bargains that everyone needs. Not your average dollar store, this new venture by owner Olena Coolin, invites feedback and ideas from its customers. Olena can think of nothing better than shaping her inventory to suit what her customers need most. Originally trained as a professional engineer in her

native Ukraine, Olena brings to her new business venture some twenty years of experience working in retail settings. Kopek stores are as popular and ubiquitous in Ukraine as dollar stores have become in North America, and when she was considering what type of retail business to develop, the idea of a neighbourhood dollar store was the obvious choice. After studying the Ottawa dollar store scene intensively, Olena was able to determine her focus and narrow her search on a location. She wanted to find a busy and dynamic neighbourhood to situate her store, and found exactly what she was looking for at Greenbank Hunt Club Centre. A Kanata resident, the store is also not far from where Olena lives with her husband Michael, whose background is in information technology, and daughter Oleksandra, who graduated from high school last year and is now studying real estate here in Ottawa. Both Michael and Oleksandra have been instrumental in getting the store set up and were on hand for the store’s opening just after Thanksgiving weekend. Small can be better Occupying a smaller than average footprint than many dollar store behemoths, the space set up by Olena and her family is refreshingly compact and easy to navigate. It’s also bright and cheerful, like so many of the Centre’s businesses which benefit from natural daylight. Faced with a more modestly sized space, it could have been tempting to squeeze in extra aisles, but accessibility was important to Olena, and she has kept the aisles widely spaced, accommodating customers using strollers, wheelchairs and other assistive devices. Olena reports that Christmas shopping is already in full swing for many of her customers, and keeping a good selection of seasonally-themed items on hand will continue to be important. The store’s current inventory is a starting point and Olena plans to change things up as customers share what they would like to find when they come shopping. Many dollar store perennials currently occupy the shelves, including giftwrap and cards, school and office supplies, craft items, household and kitchen items, small tools, pet paraphernalia, personal care products and quick snacks, but Olena will continue to tweak that list as needed. Getting a good read on what customers want is all part of creating the right feeling in this friendly new business, which aims to be much more than your average dollar store.

Your Friendly Dollar Store offers a seniors discount on Tuesdays. Sundays are balloon day: free balloons are given to children after a purchase. Additionally, if you spend ten dollars or more you get a coupon for a 5% discount on your next purchase.

Tax-holiday plan concerns councillors Orléans and parts of Carling Avenue may get incentives to attract businesses Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Business groups see a new tax-holiday plan as a way to boost job creation in Orléans and on Carling Avenue, but some councillors worry the strategy could put other areas of the city at a disadvantage. As part of a broad update to the city’s economic development strategy presented to the finance committee on Nov. 6, the city’s director of economic development and innovation, Saad Bashir, revealed a plan to provide tax incentives for businesses to come to areas that need economic stimulus or redevelopment. While these “community improvement plans” were pitched as a new citywide policy, some councillors were troubled that city staff had already chosen Orléans and part of Carling Avenue to benefit from the program before outlining the selection criteria or details about the way the program would work. Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley dissented on the report because he felt the plan to defer taxes for business that set up in Orléans would disadvantage other areas of

the city, including his ward. “When I meet with businesses, how can I convince them to come to Kanata if we are paying them not to?” he asked. Hubley wanted to defer the report until Bashir could give more details about the eligibility criteria, but the committee voted against a delay. His colleague, Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson, disagreed. “Deferring it helps stagnate economic development in our city,” she said. “It’s extremely important now.” Mayor Jim Watson had a short speech prepared to speak in favour of the plan. He said the idea is “a good experiment” to try, and something the city has never done before. While it would be nice to give incentives for the whole city, it’s not practical to have community improvement plans everywhere, Watson said. “We have to focus on areas that need help,” he said. Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans also expressed concerns about the plan. Still, she voted in support of the report. “This is a slippery slope,” she said. “I don’t like where

The city’s finance committee approved a tax holiday plan to boost business in Orléans and Carling Avenue. this is going…maybe the market should be the driver.” Deans said the criteria used to choose the areas that get a community improvement plan “will be its success or failure” and supporting the program without seeing those criteria made her uncomfortable. Kitchissippi ward resident Kevin O’Donnell ran down to city hall during the meeting to speak because he was so opposed to the “tax holiday.” “The city should be focused

2012 Christmas Hamper Program The Christmas season is moving quickly in on us, and before you know it will be here! For some; it is a time of joy, peace and family gatherings. For others, who may be having financial difficulties, it can become a stressful time of year. Operating out of the Barrhaven Food Cupboard; the Barrhaven Christmas Hamper Program is focused on alleviating some of that stress. They work to pair Schools, Churches, Families, and Businesses that can provide a Christmas Dinner Hamper to a family who may need one! From Nov 1st to Dec 15th Barrhaven families who require assistance may call the Barrhaven Food Cupboard - Christmas Hamper Program at 613-825-4505. They will be asked to leave their name, telephone number and address, and will receive a call back within 48 hours to confirm their contact details etc. As calls are received, the dedicated volunteer team of 15 spend their time, dispatching calls, matching sponsors to families, and performing call backs. In some cases, this committed team actually shop, assemble and deliver the hampers if the Sponsor does not want to be involved. Their goal is to ensure everyone in our community can enjoy a holiday dinner! Over the past few years, the requests for Hampers have grown by approximately 20% per. The Hamper Team coordinated the delivery of more than 100 Christmas Hampers to families in need in 2011! The new 2012 Hamper Program Coordinator, Colleen Turner says; “We have an abundance of generous people and businesses in Barrhaven, so once again we are reaching out to the community to please call 613-825-4505 if you can donate a Hamper this year” “We want to ensure we can provide hampers to those families who might be experiencing difficulties this year, so that everyone can enjoy the Season!”

on ensuring all businesses have a chance to prosper…but whether they prosper or fail is up to the market,” he said, adding it’s not appropriate for the city to “be in the business of picking winners.” The city should invest in things that really attract businesses to invest here, such as a good transit system and infrastructure, O’Donnell said. Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches made the same point.

“If we’re giving away money for taxes, are we going to have enough to provide the stuff that really incents businesses to come here, like transit?” he asked. Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess said the city isn’t “shovelling cash at anyone” and added that it is difficult to justify investing in transit and infrastructure if there is no business development happening in an area. It’s a chicken-andegg problem, he said. Community improvement plans are permitted by the provincial government and have been used in Hamilton, Kitchener, London, Niagara Falls and Windsor. There are two types proposed for Ottawa: plans that foster urban revitalization through grants for businesses that repair or rehabilitate existing employment areas, and employmentrelated plans that help create jobs in areas where residential growth has outstripped job creation. That is the case in Orléans, where the ratio of jobs to households is 0.5 – far lower than the citywide target of 1.3 local jobs per household. It’s unclear why Orléans has lagged behind, said Jamie Kwong McDonald, executive director of the Orléans Cham-

ber of Commerce. She said the east-end community has a lot to offer, including an educated, bilingual workforce. “Very few people actually stay in Orléans and work there,” she said. “There is a lot of excitement (about the proposed plan) in the business community in Orléans... There are some that have been stalled and this initiative is very exciting for them.” The two proposed locations would be part of a fiveyear pilot project, but Bashir said he would likely be ready to expand the program to different areas after observing how it works in Orléans and on Carling for six months. “Once the programs are up and running…with eligibility criteria, if we feel comfortable with it, I would see no reason not to expand it further,” Bashir said. Information on the Carling plan – including the boundaries of the area – is sparse. It will be an urban revitalization plan, and more information is “forthcoming,” according to a city report. Bay ward Coun. Mark Taylor has been working towards an economic development plan for the area by meeting with local businesses for the past several months.

Community crime prevention crusaders honoured Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

â&#x20AC;&#x153;When someone needs assistance, I will do anything possible to help them,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;˘ Ginsberg, Gingras and Associates Business Award: Canadian Tire Jumpstart charities Canadian Tireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jumpstart charities have helped children to access recreation and sport programs in Ottawa since 2005. During that time, Jumpstart has helped 40,000 children attend March break and summer recreation programs. The free program helps prevent kids from â&#x20AC;&#x153;falling into the wrong routines,â&#x20AC;? said Canadian Tire dealer David McClenahan, who accepted the award. â&#x20AC;˘ Volunteer Award: Roberta Della-Picca Pinecrest-Queensway resident Roberta Della-Piccaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sons were approached to sell crack cocaine minutes after the family moved into their Pinecrest-Queensway area home. A decade later, Della-Piccaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contributions to community safety initiatives â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as well as anti-racism, antibullying and anti-violence against women programs and aboriginal advocacy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; were honoured.

EMC news - Volunteers from across the city sent a message of collective responsibility for neighbourhood safety during Crime Prevention Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual awards on Nov. 5. Eight groups and individuals were honoured for their contributions to making Ottawa a safer place during the Community Safety Awards. The real-life stories of people who received awards illustrate the importance of crime prevention, said Chantal Bernier, CPO board member and president of the International Crime Prevention Centre. Stories like that of Embellissement Vanier Beautification, winner of the Volunteer Program Award, capture the attention of audiences around the world when she speaks, Bernier said. A recent audience was â&#x20AC;&#x153;truly marvellingâ&#x20AC;? at the reduction in crime in Vanier, Bernier said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That example shows how Ottawa has the potential, the stature, to be a model for the world.â&#x20AC;? That kind of mobilization of citizens is key to safety and crime reduction, Bernier said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Crime prevention is not

the best solution; it is the only solution,â&#x20AC;? she told the crowd gathered at city hall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A truly safe community is one that has a targeted effort towards crime prevention.â&#x20AC;? Awards handed out during the ceremony included: â&#x20AC;˘Youth Leadership Award: Peiman Soltani For the past five years, 24year-old Peiman Soltani has worked with at-risk youth. Through his citywide Ottawa Community Centre Basketball League for Youth and the West End Motivators, Soltani said he tries to â&#x20AC;&#x153;be an older brotherâ&#x20AC;? to the youth he works with, like his mentors were for him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To see this change, it really motivates me more to get involved with the younger generation,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;˘ City Employee Award: Abdulkadar Mohamed Dualeh Abdulkadar Mohamed Dualeh left his home of wartorn Somalia to come to Canada alone at age 13 and immediately began volunteering at the Canterbury community police centre in an effort to become a police officer like his father. Both on- and off-duty, Dualeh has prevented two women from taking their lives and saved a barefoot toddler who was freezing in the snow.

List of chores was long

Making the toast for breakfast was another job Mother thought I was quite capable of handling. Of course, there was no electricity on the farm back then, so a wire rack was placed over the fire in the Findlay Oval

fast was another job Mother thought I was quite capable of handling. Of course, there was no electricity on the farm back then, so a wire rack was placed over the fire in the Findlay Oval. It held four slices of bread and I couldn’t take my eyes off it for a second or the toast would burn. The penalty for this error in judgment was my having to eat the burnt toast. The fact that my hateful brother Emerson did everything in his power to have me burn the bread, had me so nervous, I was a complete wreck by the time everyone had their toast. As soon as I got home from school, and had changed into my play clothes, I was

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories also expected to go out to the hen house and gather the eggs. I used a wicker basket and had to be very careful to handle the eggs carefully, because many of them would be sold in Renfrew on the Saturday. Large eggs sold for 15 cents a dozen, but if they were cracked, you were lucky to get a nickel. My sister Audrey, older than I by about 11 years, often didn’t use the basket. Like Mother, Audrey would bunch up the bottom of her apron and carry the eggs that way. And never once do I ever remember her cracking an egg. I tried it one day with my apron, but with disastrous results. I had to go out behind the hen house and get ride of the ones I managed to break before Mother saw what I had done. It was back to the basket for me! There was a job, however, I felt very privileged to be given. After the milking was done at night, the milk was moved by stone boat, in big milk cans, into the summer kitchen. It was my job to place a square of clean cheese cloth over each can and then sink on the lids tightly. I could never figure out why we used the cheese cloth, but it was a necessary part of the job. The next morning, before my chore with the toast began, I would take the big brown baking bowl and the little tin strainer out to the summer kitchen to one of the milk cans. Using the strainer, I would skim off the cream that would settle over the night to the top, and put it into the bowl, so that everyone would have a helping of rich cream for their porridge. I liked this job because Mother and I had a ritual that never varied all the time we lived on the farm in Renfrew County. I would bring the bowl of cream into the kitchen and say to Mother, as I did every morning, “A miracle happened overnight, Mother. Last night that milk was white, and this morning it is the colour of gold. It’s a miracle Mother.” And I would wait for the answer that never varied. “It’s not a miracle Mary… that’s just good old fashioned Renfrew County magic.” We would both laugh, never tiring

of the ritual that went on day after day, every morning of my life as the youngest in the family, on that farm in Northcote. R0011708657

here was a price to pay for being the youngest in the family. I was given, I thought, more than my share of chores, all because Mother thought they were easy jobs and ones I could handle. All because I was the smallest of the five children, but also the youngest. It was my chore to keep the wood box in the kitchen filled. It was a job I hated because never once did I carry in the wood from the summer kitchen that I didn’t end up with splinters in my hands and often in my arms. But Mother thought it was an easy chore and one of which I was quite capable of handling. Another job that fell on my shoulders was making sure the water under the ice box accumulated in a white granite basin, was emptied. Only once I remember forgetting about it, and having it overflow all over the kitchen floor. That meant I had to get down on my hands and knees and mop the entire kitchen floor. I never forgot to check the basin for melted ice after that. Making the toast for break-

Buy, store, prepare fish properly EMC lifestyle - Aquaculture is centuries old and is widespread in Asia. Until the 1980s, more than 70 per cent of world supply came from China, Japan, Korea and the Philippines. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a relatively new industry to Canada. In Ontario, ďŹ sh culture goes back to about 1866, but it was only in 1962 that changes to the Game and Fish Act permitted raising of commercial ďŹ sh for stocking waterways and later for human consumption. Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s initial 16 ďŹ sh farms have grown to more than 200 today. BUYING AND STORING

Farmed ďŹ sh are of consistent quality and are available all year round. You can buy them at retail outlets, farmers markets or at the farm gate in several forms: whole dressed, ďŹ llets or smoked. To prepare for storage, soak in salted water for 30 minutes to remove the natural slippery, protective coating. Tightly wrap and refriger-

ate for two to three days. To store for up to three months, freeze tightly-wrapped ďŹ sh at -18 C. PREPARING AND COOKING

Cook with mild-ďŹ&#x201A;avoured oils (such as butter, hydrogenated shortening, peanut or corn oil) to prevent ďŹ&#x201A;avour from transferring to the mild ďŹ&#x201A;avour of the ďŹ sh. To ensure moist and tender ďŹ sh, probe with a fork while cooking to see that ďŹ&#x201A;esh is opaque and ďŹ&#x201A;akes easily. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a brief outline of the chief cooking methods: Pan-Fry: Dip ďŹ sh pieces in milk, roll in ďŹ&#x201A;our. Lightly grease a heavy skillet and brown on both sides. Season with salt and pepper. Bake: Sprinkle with salt and pepper and brush with melted butter or vegetable oil. Bake in well-greased pan for 15 to 20 minutes at 400 F (200 C). Microwave: Season to taste fresh or thawed ďŹ sh; cover with plastic wrap leaving one corner open for venting. Cook on high for ďŹ ve to six

minutes per pound (or four to ďŹ ve minutes per ďŹ llet). Let stand three to four minutes before serving. Barbecue: Place seasoned ďŹ llet on grill, skin side down. Cook on one side only for about 10 minutes at medium to high heat. Poach: In ďŹ&#x201A;at pan, barely cover ďŹ sh with hot Court Bouillon (see below). Cover and simmer, not boil, for four to six minutes. (Court Bouillon: Combine one litre of water, three tablespoons of lemon juice or one tablespoon of cider vinegar and 1.5 teaspoons of salt. Bring to a boil and cook three minutes before poaching ďŹ sh.) Broil: Cover with basting oil or Dijon sauce (see below). Broil 10 to 15 centimetres from heat source for about 10 minutes. (Dijon sauce: Mix one part Dijon mustard with three parts mayonnaise. Season with lemon pepper and fresh dill. Spread evenly over ďŹ llets for broiling, baking or barbecuing.) Foodland Ontario

New Southpointe plaza approved Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - A new plaza will be coming to the intersection at Mitch Owens and Limebank roads after the city’s rural councillors approved a rezoning plan on Nov. 1. The planned plaza on Longshadow Drive in the Southpointe community stirred concerns last spring after the developer came to the final meeting with significant changes to the plans. Nearby residents were also concerned with traffic and pedestrian safety, especially given the proximity to St. Mark Catholic High School. But those concerns had

mostly been alleviated by Nov. 1, when the city’s agriculture and rural affairs committee met to discuss and approve the plan. Southpointe Community Association president Michawl de Waal said most of the neighbours are supportive of the final plans. Southpointe resident Katrina Kouretas had called on the development to be more restricted to reduce traffic levels when she spoke to the committee in May, but on Nov.1 Kouretas said she was generally supportive of the plan. But she asked the committee to look at restricting some of the types of retail and restaurants allowed

on the site, such as eliminating the option of having a fast food restaurant. That was not something the committee was interested in doing. DOESN’T FIT

But despite staff’s recommendation that a plaza with 1,000 square metres of retail, restaurant and office space was not appropriate outside a rural village, the committee unanimously approved the rezoning. The approval provides a rare opportunity to build a commercial centre outside of a rural village, which is where the city tries to concentrate rural com-

ID#A147975

Copper is a neutered male, tricolor German Shepherd and Labrador Retriever, who is about one year and 11 months old. He was brought to the shelter as a stray on September 6 and is now available for adoption. Copper loves to be very active, both physically and mentally. This will help him be more relaxed in your home when it’s time for a rest. He has a super social disposition and loves to meet and greet everyone he sees. Copper needs a patient owner who will teach him all of the skills he need to be the best dog he can be! Copper is a really wonderful boy who just needs a bit of direction!

mercial development. Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt said staff made the right recommendation because their job is to follow city policy. “But it’s our job to interpret whether (the policy) makes sense in all situations,” said Moffatt. In this case, there are already some commercial developments on Longshadow, and the changes allow more types of businesses to move in there, as well as a set-out plan for how the plaza will look. The final rezoning also includes a change to allow a medical office, office space or an instructional facility at 5710

Longshadow St. and a drive through (proposed for a bank ATM), retail food store and a retail store at 5699 Longshadow. There are plans for a deli café with outdoor seating as part of the plaza, said architect Vincent Colizza. One of the main topics of discussion was the traffic impact of more development on Longshadow. With adjustments to traffic signals and road lanes, the plaza shouldn’t cause “failure” or extreme congestion at the Limebank/Dozois/Mitch Owens intersection, said city staffer Steve Gauthier. “We are satisfied that the impact of adding retail would not worsen the impact on traffic,” he said. “Some changes could be made to the signalized intersection to preserve the level of service.”

Suggested changes include: • Adding left-turn lanes both northbound and southbound on Limebank and Dozois where they intersect with Mitch Owens. • Adding a deceleration/ right-turn lane on Dozois Road as it approaches the high school. • Adding a signalized pedestrian crossing across both Dozois and Longshadow. There are no plans to add any access to Longshadow Street from Mitch Owens Road, and staff definitely wouldn’t support that due to the proximity of the Dozois intersection, Gauthier said. Still, de Waal said residents have concerns about access, particularly for emergency vehicles. The community is a rarity in that it only has one entrance and exit.

PET OF THE WEEK

Mom is a spayed female, brown and white tabby Domestic Short Hair cat, she is about one year and 3 months old. She was brought to the shelter as a stray on August 29 and is currently available for adoption. Mom needs a home that will allow her to be independent all the while giving her some cuddling time! She tends to be vocal, and would love a home in which she can have endless conversations with you, or another cat!

Is your cat’s scratching habit leaving you scratching your head? and make her less likely to use the post. Special products for training your cat are available at pet supply stores. If you are considering declawing your cat, consider this: declawing a cat doesn’t remove just the claws — it amputates the end digit from the paw, similar in scope to cutting off a person’s finger at the last joint. This procedure can cause substantial discomfort and complications after the operation. Declawed cats may become reclusive, irritable, aggressive and unpredictable, and may have a tendency to bite as they cannot scratch to give warning. While other, newer methods exist for declawing (for example, laser surgery), the end result is still undesirable for your cat as it prevents her from engaging in normal cat behaviour. The OHS does not support declawing. It should be considered as a final option after you have exhausted other alternatives to eliminate destructive behaviour. However, if you feel that you must either declaw your cat or give her up, the OHS would rather see your cat stay in her home. If you decide that it is absolutely necessary to have your cat declawed, only have the front paws done, so that the cat can still scratch an itch, climb and defend herself. If this is your decision, consult your veterinarian first and discuss having the surgery done at the same time your cat is spayed or neutered. Other tips If you catch your cat in the act, try making a loud noise (for example, use a whistle, shake a soda can filled with pebbles or pennies, or slap a wall or a table) or use a water-filled squirt bottle. Conversely, when your cat claws the scratching post instead of your couch, make sure you give your cat extra praise and affection. One reason cats scratch is to remove the dead outer layer of their claws. Regularly trimming your cat’s nails can help reduce scratching. You should clip off the sharp tips of your cat’s claws on his front feet every two weeks or so. More companion animal information is available at www.ottawahumane.ca.

This is my beautiful niece Diamond. We call this picture a puppy bed burrito. She really is a Diamond in the ruff. I adopted Diamond a couple of months ago after her human dad Tony (my younger brother) passed away. She is beautiful, affectionate and very special to our family because she was Tony’s baby. She loves playing, barking at other dogs and cuddling :) 9dndji]^c`ndjgeZi^hXjiZZcdj\]idWZÆI=:E:ID;I=:L::@Ç4HjWb^iVe^XijgZVcYh]dgi W^d\gVe]nd[ndjgeZiidÒcYdjiH^beanZbV^aid/X[dhiZg5i]ZcZlhZbX#XVViiZci^dcÆEZid[i]ZLZZ`Ç

A Diamond in the Ruff 1115

Scratching is normal cat behaviour, not a comment on your upholstery. Cats scratch in order to: remove the dead outer layer of their claws; rub their scent onto things to mark their territory; stretch; work off energy; and even to seek your attention when they want something. There are lots of ways to keep your feline friend from ruining the furniture. You can’t eliminate scratching behaviours: it’s a normal behaviour for your cat; it becomes a problem only when the object being scratched is an item of value to you. The goal is to redirect the scratching to an acceptable object, such as a scratching post. Provide objects for scratching that are appealing and convenient from your cat’s point of view. Observe the physical features of the objects your cat is scratching. Note their location, texture, shape and height. Substitute a similar object(s) for your cat to scratch (for example, rope-wrapped posts, corrugated cardboard, or even a log). Place an acceptable object (for example, scratching post) near an inappropriate object (for example, upholstered chair). Make sure the objects are stable and won’t fall over when she uses them. You can make these objects more attractive to your cat by spraying them with catnip periodically and hanging a toy from the post. If you cat is refusing to use a scratching post and prefers your rug, try covering a piece of plywood with carpet and spraying it with some catnip. Cover the inappropriate object(s) with something your cat won’t like, such as double-sided sticky tape, aluminium foil, sheets of sandpaper, or a plastic carpet runner with the pointy side up. Only remove the “unappealing” coverings (for example, double-sided sticky tape, aluminium foil, sheets of sandpaper) from the inappropriate object(s) when your cat is consistently using the appropriate objects. This will entice your cat to investigate the more appealing scratching post. Don’t take your cat over to the scratching post and position her paws on the post to show her what she’s supposed to do. This will likely have the opposite effect
