Hockey community rallies around Gloucester player Brier Dodge

EMC news - Chris Kushneriuk has put his hockey career on pause, but his friends and teammates have switched to fast-forward to raise funds for the Gloucester-raised player. Kushneriuk, who just had his 26th birthday on Christmas Eve, was playing with the Wheeling Nailers of the East Coast Hockey League when he found out late last season he had cancer. In order to receive the best care from doctors most familiar with the complicated treatment he’s receiving, Kushneriuk is undergoing treatment in Indianapolis. He’s getting treatment for his testicular cancer from some of the best doctors in the world, including those who worked with Lance Armstrong,

said Kushneriuk’s girlfriend, Christiane Lalonde. “They’re recognized worldwide,” Lalonde said. “He’s in very good hands.” But without medical insurance, top care comes at a steep price. He’s looking at about $250,000 to cover the cost of treatment. “It’s very expensive and it all happened so fast,” Lalonde said. “But there’s no price on life.” She said that he started his treatment in December and it is expected to last until about early February. Growing up in Gloucester, Kushneriuk attended Colonel By Secondary School and played junior A hockey for both the Orléans Blues and Kanata Stallions.

More Presto cards available later this month OC Transpo seeks ‘frequent riders’ for 10,000-card rollout Laura Mueller

EMC news - OC Transpo is hoping to tap frequent riders to help get the bugs out of its smart-card payment system. The new Presto cards will be available for free at OC Transpo sales centres between Jan. 18 and Feb. 1. There are already 2,000 people using the cards as part of a “friends and family” test program and OC Transpo is hoping up to 10,000 more people join them when the new cards begin to work on Feb. 1. The cards are being released to a larger number of transit users to test the beleaguered system when it’s under heavier use. The Presto system is used by some transit agencies in southern Ontario, but Ottawa was set to be the first city to use a new generation of the technology last summer. A full, 200,000-card rollout was scheduled for June, but the city and provincial agency responsible for the system, Metrolinx, pulled the plug at the last minute due to technical issues. Glitches, such as red screens in-

dicating rejected payments, continued to plague the system through the summer, forcing Metrolinx and the city to extend the “friends and family” test period through the winter. Presto is supposed to usher in a new era of how users pay to ride the bus. For one thing, the passes are transferable, meaning you, a spouse, a child, a friend, a roommate or anyone, really, could share a card – as long as you don’t ride at the same time. The cards can be topped up online or at a service centre. regular use

Manager of business and operational services, David Pepper, said OC Transpo is hoping at least half of the new Presto-card holders use the cards regularly. That lowball number is enough to give OC Transpo the kind of critical mass it needs to put the system to the test. In addition, now that the Toronto Transit Commission has signed on to implement Presto for the TTC by 2016, all eyes will be watching Ottawa to see how it fares. Last month, Amalgamated Transit Union Local 279 boss Craig Watson said that all 1,600 OC Transpo operators were set to be retrained on how to use the Presto system in January in advance of File the deluge of new users expected OC Transpo riders can pick up one of 10,000 free Presto cards the city is making available at OC Transpo sales in February. centres between Jan. 18 and Feb. 1.

Family moving in forced out by fire

OPP turning up the heat in support of youth

EMC news - Two adults and their four teenaged children are safe after the home they were moving into caught fire. The blaze at 1210 Orléans Blvd. began shortly before noon on Dec. 30. Fire is believed to have started in the kitchen however the exact cause of the fire remains under investigation. There was nobody home at the time of the fire. The family was in the process of moving into the unit. They had furniture delivered on the morning of the fire. Ottawa fire says there is extensive fire damage throughout the main floor area as well as part of the upper level and extensive smoke damage throughout the unit. Damage is estimated at $150,000 for building and $100,000 for contents.

Firefighters work at the scene of a Dec. 30 blaze on Orléans Boulevard. No one was hurt in the fire but a family in the process of moving into the home was forced to make other plans.

EMC news - Kids caught in the act of doing the right thing this winter won’t be given “the cold shoulder” by the OPP, thanks to a continued partnership with Mac’s Convenience Stores. Operation Heat 2012 recognizes positive behaviour by Ontario youth in a very warm way. Building on this past summer’s highly successful Operation Freeze 2012, OPP officers who observe local youth doing random acts of kindness or exhibiting positive behavior this winter will again be able to recognize that young person with a coupon valid for a free hot chocolate at participating Mac’s stores across Ontario. In addition to recognizing good behaviour, Operation Heat promotes opportunities for OPP officers to interact with youth in a positive manner. Officers may use the coupons to recognize youth for doing good deeds, participating in community activities, picking up trash or observing safety rules. Officers can also make use of the coupons as icebreakers to establish a dialogue with kids in their patrol area.

Brier Dodge

EMC news - It’s not about what restaurant has the best wine list or fancy menu. It’s about who has the best appetizers in Chapel Hill, or the best secret family recipe in Queenswood Heights. The Orléans’ Farmers Market will open with a special event this year, and it’s never too early to start fine tuning a recipe to enter. The My Neighbourhood Bites event will be coming to the opening day of the market on May 17, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Centrum Courtyard at 250 Centrum Blvd. The event aims to prove that great chefs don’t necessarily work full-time in a kitchen. Entrants can range from stay-athome parents to federal government workers, and the best of the nonprofessionals will show-off their dishes at the market opening. The My Neighbourhood Bites events are being held in various neighbourhoods across the city over the coming months. The deadline to enter for the Orléans event is April 26. The event is organized by Taboo Eats’ Donna Henhoeffer, who puts out the call for amateur cooks to enter eack cook-off. Everyone who enters is invited to a judging event, where they arrive with two portions of their dish. From there, the best dishes advance to the public event.

The top three will have their recipes published in a cookbook, which will benefit the Ottawa Food Bank, and the overall winner will advance to the Ottawa-wide finale in the late spring. Henhoeffer had to smile when amateur chef Savage hit the nail on the head with the competitions’ aim. “My goal is to dispel myths about cooking,” he said. “That you have to be a chef to do it.” The May 17 event will feature the top dishes from a May judging between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. The event has a $5 admission fee, with tasting cards available for $10 for two samples, or $20 for five. It takes place at at the Centrum Courtyard at 250 Centrum Blvd. All of the My Neighbourhood Bites events are open to all ages.

There is no entry fee and all the ingredients for the big night are provided. “They can do something with just a great recipe,” Henhoeffer said.

“It’s an opportunity for people to be creative.” On Dec. 17, at the judging for the Centretown event, a variety of dishes hit the table, ranging from a halibut taco to a vegan cheesecake. The people behind the dishes were just as diverse, including Emel Isilgan, whose son entered her in the event – and told her only two hours before the competition. She made a Middle Eastern rice and chicken dish called kabsa,

which she learned to cook while living in Saudi Arabia. Isilgan said she has often hosted friends who would ask her how to make her Middle Eastern dishes, leading to impromptu cooking lessons in her kitchen.

He went on to graduate from Robert Morris University, where he was the 2010 team captain and 2009-10 student athlete of the year for the school. It means that the tight-knit hockey community – both at his alma matter and in his hometown – have quickly organized to help raise funds for Kushneriuk, with the motto Krush Cancer attached to fundraisers. In his hometown, friends, family and teammates have been quick to organize multiple fundraisers. Lalonde planned one at her work, and another at the Heart and Crown pub. His friends organized another night out in benefit of the cause at the Great Canadian Cabin bar downtown. But on Dec. 28, supporters were able to raise at least $6,000 with a charity hockey game featuring NHL, university, OHL and junior A players. The players taking the ice at the Minto arena included Claude Giroux, Erik Gudbranson, Marc Methot, Eric Condra and Grant Clitsome. Many of the athletes are a part of Apex Sport Management, which organized the event. Dan Bittle, a partner at Apex, said he works with a number of players who grew up playing with Kushneriuk. “We put the word out to our players and it grew. It was a pretty neat thing to see guys step up,” Bittle said. “We were impressed by the calibre of the athletes.” Minto donated ice time and about 600 tickets were sold. There was also a silent auction

Everyone came together to help and it was a great night.” She said Kushneriuk has been surprised how much money teammates both in the States and in Canada have been able to raise towards his treatment. “He’s very happy and grateful for all the support, he appreciates everything,” she said. While they have raised a significant amount, there is still a long ways to go before the full cost of his treatment will be covered.

EMC news - The work of west Ottawa artist Michael Parkin will cause you to move. The former president of the Nepean-based Foyer Gallery began exploring the concepts of kinetics and op art as a result of his recent solo show at the Shenkman Centre, A World in Motion – Kinetic Works. “Op” or Optical art is a concept developed in the 1960s. It’s a style of visual art that makes use of optical illusions, giving the viewer an active role in interpreting the work. One piece in the Shenkman show, entitled Hypnogogue, uses this technique with a metal grate over series of dots in a circular pattern. The dots appear to move as the viewer does. “The optically-based works have developed over a year of experimentation,” Parkin said, adding he had been thinking op art since he did a show at Ottawa’s city hall in 1977. Thanks to a $5,000 grant from the ARTicipate Endowment Fund he was able to do that. Parkin is a self-proclaimed assemblage artist, sculptor and metal smith. He said he was happy for the grant because it gave him the freedom to experiment with the selection at the Shenkman show. The pieces ranged from mo-

bile-type sculptures that hang in midair to a combination of found materials and mechanized, kinetic sculptures that are backlit in a dark-room like room achieved by cordoning off a section of the gallery with a black curtain. One piece featured vines from the Rideau River bank and old bones from Parkin’s son’s property. Parkin said he hoped to divide up the Foyer Gallery in November to expand the concept even further. “Those (works) involving projected shadows take on a cinematic quality while others give viewers a sense of visual disorientation,” he said. Parkin said working at a city gallery and with the ARTicipate grant gave him the freedom to try the technique without worrying about the commercial viability of the pieces. “I sold four of the mobiles

Sax Appeal will play the cocktail hour during the Kanata Chamber of Commerce’s People’s Choice Business Awards gala on Feb. 21. “Because most of the events we do are private, not many people have heard us,” said Goldsmith. “To actually have them see us and hear us … you have to see it.

EMC entertainment - An Ottawa saxophone quartet says it’s filling a niche market by offering a different sound. “Nobody’s ever heard of a group like this. We’re so unique,” said Jarrod Goldsmith, founder of Sax Appeal. “Even in the world, it’s not a very common ensemble.” Sax Appeal is made up of four Ottawa-area musicians: Orléans resident Goldsmith on baritone saxophone; Mike Mullin from the downtown core on tenor saxophone; Gatineau resident Dave Renaud on alto saxophone; and south end resident Christine Davies on soprano saxophone. “I’m creating a market for a group like this because nobody’s ever heard of a sax quartet,” said Goldsmith. “We play any genre of music; we’re versatile.” The group came together two years ago when Goldsmith developed the concept of a sax quartet. “This is my full time job,” he said. “I work with the best musicians in town. “When we play, I want to add to the ambiance of the event.” Sax Appeal has played a number of corporate and private events, including the Gatineau Hot Air Balloon

Festival. “We played the Muppet Show theme song at the balloon festival for the kids,” said Goldsmith. “We’re versatile; we’re different.” The group plays everything from classical numbers to jazz pieces, from Celtic to Christmas songs, from funk to reggae and “everything in between” added Goldsmith. “What makes the city vibrant? It’s the cultural life and that involves having live music.”

Woman helps others Walk for Memories Jessica Cunha

Debbie Seto

This year’s Walk for Memories in support of the Alzheimer Society of Ottawa and Renfrew County will take place on Jan. 27 at the Carleton University Fieldhouse. From left, Laura Tippet, walk committee member, emcee Kurt Stoodley, and Tracey Pagé, walk committee member, take part in last year’s event. tee since the beginning. “As a volunteer and with support from Tracey’s coworkers and backing of her employer, she led the initiative and the Walk for Memories started in 1996,” said Debbie Seto, spokesperson for the Alzheimer Society of Ottawa and Renfrew County. WALK

The event is held annually on the last Sunday in January at the conclusion of Alzheimer Awareness Month. Every year, Collins Barrow is the lead sponsor and a number of employees and retired accountants volunteer their time to co-ordinate the walk.

“It’s a great, great group of people,” said Pagé. “Volunteers come year after year. They really enjoy seeing the good that’s done. “The firm jumps in with both feet to really, really try and support the Alzheimer’s Society.” All the money raised stays in the community to fund programs and respite care offered by the Alzheimer’s Society. “The funds are raised to support their programs and give the support to families that need it,” said Pagé. “I had seen how important respite care was.” This year’s walk will take place on Jan. 27, inside the Carleton University Field-

house. Registration begins at 9 a.m. with a warm-up at 10 a.m. followed by the walk. Pagé said hosting an indoor walk during the winter helps set the fundraiser apart from the traditional outdoor summer walks. “The day itself we just really try to make fun,” said Pagé. “(Teams) usually have a theme and to see them marching around as a group with so much spirit, usually they’re inspired by someone.” Five walking challenges from one to 10 kilometres are available. There will be music, a kids’ activity centre and refreshments, free parking, and “a few surprises,” said Pagé. R0011851123

EMC news - The Walk for Memories in support of the Alzheimer Society of Ottawa and Renfrew County came about 17 years ago thanks to a Katimavik woman and a Nepean business. Tracey Pagé, an accountant with Collins Barrow Ottawa LLP in Bells Corners, developed the idea of the fundraising walk. The firm created a committee to choose a charity it could work with. “We talked about wanting to give back,” she said. “(To) try to align ourselves with a charity we could really, really give to.” Her grandfather had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in the ’80s and at that time, it wasn’t a widely-known disease, she said. “I’d never even heard the word before that,” said Pagé of the diagnosis. At the time, the Ottawa Alzheimer’s Society had no government funding so when Collins Barrow decided to join forces with a charitable organization, Pagé suggested they work with the Ottawa chapter. “They had to purely work on the donations. It was such a small budget,” she said. “They were trying to do so much with so little. I had seen the good they do.” So she set up a meeting with then executive director Kathy Wright and developed the idea of a fundraising walk. That first walk, back in 1996, raised $22,000 with 175 participants. “It was a lot of fun; it was a lot of work but we considered it a success,” said Pagé, who has been on the Walk commit-

For the second year, the Sons of Scotland pipe band will lead the first lap around the track. “It’s a really nice tradition,” said Pagé. “We’ve always had, since year one, a bagpiper lead the first lap.”

The Walk for Memories first began in the Carlingwood Shopping Centre, but four years ago moved to Carleton University because the number of participants grew too large. “We always like to see our numbers grow. That’s our biggest goal,” said Pagé. “What started off as a really small event is turning into a well known city-(wide) fundraising event.” Back in 1998, Pagé participated in the walk while she was nine months pregnant. “… All of us were convinced her baby was going to be born at the event,” said Seto. “(It was) a memorable moment for us who have been around for awhile.” Her son was born less than a week later on Jan. 31. “It was a lot of fun; it was cute,” said Pagé, adding her two sons have been participating in the walk since they were born. “They’ve gone every year.” There is no registration fee to participate, but walkers are asked to raise a minimum donation of $100. There will be a special draw for anyone raising $1,000 or more on or before Jan. 27 for a chance to win two airline tickets to any destination served by Porter Airlines.

Presto should disappear if system fails again


he Presto payment system for the city’s buses and future light rail hasn’t travelled a smooth road. The tap-and-go payment cards look nifty and plenty of riders would like to give them a try, but they’re not quite ready for prime time, or rush hour for that matter. Between Jan. 18 and Feb. 1, the city will hand out 10,000 free Presto cards. Then on Feb. 1, the final

test will begin. If the cards work as designed, you can expect to see Presto cards all over town within months. Part of the reason some riders are looking forward to the cards is their advantage over the current monthly paper passes. Once Presto is up and running, riders will be able to share cards; something that’s not allowed under the current system. That means a parent can potentially come home

from work and hand the Presto card off to a child or other adult to use during the evening. Sounds good, but we need the Presto system to work before that comes true. Presto cards are expected to deliver another advantage. They will make paper passes and eventually tickets obsolete at some point in the future, saving the cost of making, counting and then trashing the paper ones now in use.

City council decided Presto was the right package for Ottawa. Councillors voted to go with the system in part because it has been tested in the real world by Toronto’s transit system. But then things went wrong. The city accepted that Ottawa should have a Presto system that ran on a new, untested software package and new display screens for drivers. The software failed and

now, as we approach a rescheduled launch, OC Transpo’s drivers must undergo retraining because of the new interface screens. While it sounds fair that Metrolinx – Presto’s parent – is paying for the retraining, every taxpayer should keep in mind that our provincial taxes help cover the cost of the duplicate training sessions provided by Metrolinx. If this final test of Presto fails, the city can walk away

from the contract as late as April. Of course that still means the city will have to start from scratch. The mess has raised some big questions: why didn’t we buy an off-the-shelf system with hardware and software that had already been proven elsewhere and why is Ottawa stuck as the guinea pig for the new software? As every transit user knows, they key to a good system is running on time.


Our unique relationship with winter CHARLES GORDON Funny Town


ust after Christmas there was a great big snow. Other places got more of it than we did, but we got enough. The Queensway was mushy and slow, on-ramps were slippery, arterial roads were tricky and residential streets were mostly unplowed. The day after that snow, I was driving out of town. The side streets were fine. The Queensway was in beautiful shape. So was Highway 7, and it wasn’t as if any of the snow had melted. No, it had just been pushed aside and taken away. “Well, of course,” I hear you say. “We know how to deal with snow.” It’s something we always hear ourselves saying, often to friends in the U.S. who have lived through snowstorms that have crippled transportation and deprived thousands of power. We know how to deal with snow, we say smugly. We also love to say it to our cousins in Toronto after they have had a difficult time with the weather. We don’t have to call out the army to clear the streets. But what was apparent the day after that big snow on the dry and clear 417 is that it’s not we who know how to deal with snow. It’s the people who work for us, who drive that noisy, clunky equipment all day and through the middle of the night and into next day. They know how to deal with snow. And, unlike people in many other walks of life, they don’t just do it when they feel like it. They do it when it’s needed and don’t stop until it’s done. The same goes for the private guys who clear the laneways, parking lots and

driveways of the city. There are more and more of those, as annual warnings about the risks of shovelling are read by wary (certainly not lazy!) males of a certain age. It’s a miracle what they all do. One day you think you’ll never be able to get where you want to get and the next day you forget that you even thought about it. You rarely hear those who live in Ottawa complain about the snowplows. Not for long, anyway. Deal with snow? We as individuals might play our little part. We get our cars out of the way, sometimes doing a little dance with the snowplows. We put snow tires on our cars so that we don’t get stranded and add to everyone else’s difficulties. We stay home when urged to, take public transit when it makes more sense. But it’s not we who get the snow off the streets and roads. The people who do that not only perform a great service; they also enable our bragging about how we know how to deal with snow. It’s a neat trick to convince ourselves we are hardy northern survivor types at the same time as we spend most of our time indoors and warm while others do the heavy lifting. That’s what Canadians do every winter and the accumulation of bragging rights adds to our national pride. So it’s best not to question it too much. We do, in fact, go outside from time to time. We bundle up. We freeze in the car until it warms up. We wait in the cold for the bus. In colder parts of the country we even plug the car in overnight. And when we get where we are going, when we get back indoors, we are exhilarated by how cold it was and how we survived and we can’t stop talking about it. Not everyone on Earth gets to do this. For example, people who live in warm weather climes, such as southern California, can’t, although they occasionally get to brag about brush fires and earthquakes, thus avoiding the accusation that they are total weather wimps. I wonder if they say “we know how to deal with earthquakes”?

The all-or-nothing decision Make the best of the changes BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse Before children, women in OECD countries earn 17 per cent less than their male counterparts for the same position. After the birth of a child, a woman typically earns 22 per cent less than a man for the same work. The OECD report cites lack of affordable daycare options as one of the biggest deterrents to women increasing their work hours. Even those who are able to find daycare are frequently criticized for institutionalizing children at a young age – “throwing the baby out with the bath water,” as a couple of Quebec doctors pitched it a few years ago. Those, like my friend, who would be quite happy to shelve or downshift their careers temporarily to get through the pre-school years discover relatively quickly that society doesn’t offer a lot of support for the stay-athome or part-time-working parent either. criticism

Women who choose to stay home for an extended maternity leave are often criticized for halting feminism in its tracks. And there are few childcare options for the woman who would like to have the best of both worlds – working part-time, or full-time during anti-social hours, for example. Canada is among a handful of OECD countries that has no national childcare strategy. But while the New

Democratic Party and other left-wing groups frequently advocate for a national standard in childcare, there is little discussion on how to help women – who continue to be the primary caregivers of young children – find care solutions that would fit the true complexity of their lives. One of the biggest hurdles to the creation of a national childcare strategy is that most of us are only in the system for a handful of years. Once we get our kids into school, we stop thinking about childcare, let alone talking about it. And in an aging society, many of us come to see that our precious taxpayer dollars may be better spent on health care and home care for the elderly, rather than on kindergartens. But it’s time to change the decision framework concerning mothers and work in this country. We need women to work in order to drive the economy. We also need men and women to have children who will grow up, work, drive the economy and support our aging population. Surely we can do better than we currently are as a society. We can work to find childcare solutions and build supports into our workplace policies that would allow men and women to make choices for their families without making it seem like one has to directly trade work time for family time or vice versa.

to your Canada Pension Plan

EMC news - The Canada Pension Plan has embarked on a series of changes that may cause you to rethink when to begin receiving your CPP pension benefits. The amendments are intended to provide more financial flexibility depending on each individual’s chosen retirement path and to encourage Canadians to work longer before starting to draw a government pension. That’s why these changes provide greater incentives for those willing to work past the traditional retirement age and significant reductions for those taking CPP benefits before age 65. Dave Ablett, pension expert at Investors Group, says the new rules make it more attractive to delay receipt of your CPP benefits – but only if: your health is good: your life expectancy above average; you have a reasonable income and/or you intend to continue working after 65. He says you should consider taking your CPP benefits earlier if: your life expectancy is below average; you have an illness that doesn’t

qualify for CPP disability; you have little or no other income or you are permanently unemployed. Ablett says there are other changes you should know about: • The work cessation rule has been eliminated. Now, starting at age 60, you can continue working and still receive CPP benefits. • The earnings drop-out provision has been changed. Under the old rules, if you retired at age 65, you could drop out seven of your lowest earning years from age 18 to 65 when you were eligible to contribute to CPP. Now, that dropout period has increased to 7.5 years and will increase again, to eight years, in 2014. “If you’re approaching retirement, you have a lot of financial decisions to make, including how to get the most out of the CPP changes for your situation,” Ablett said. “Your professional advisor can help guide you down the right path to your best possible, and most financially stable, retirement.” – News Canada

friend sent me an email recently. Within days of turning over the calendar, she finds herself in the unenviable position of making a big decision: do I pack in my home business and return to work full-time or do I continue the daily grind, working on ad hoc assignments, trying to make ends meet and being a dedicated mother-of-two at the same time? Either way, she’s looking at a huge fiscal hit. Daycare for two pre-schoolers is certain to set her back more than her mortgage (approximately $1,900 per month in Ottawa). If she stays home, she faces the prospect of a smaller and relatively unsteady income – not to mention the guilt that inevitably comes with shifting one’s focus back and forth constantly from children to work ventures. Certainly, there’s no easy answer. A big part of the problem is the decision framework that exists in Canada, pitting career against family. Too often, the return-towork decision tends to be an all-or-nothing venture. You either work full-time and put the kids in full-time care (if you can find it and afford it) or you stay home full-time and risk setting your career back for an indefinite period of time. For those who would like to work, it becomes quickly evident that society doesn’t truly support working mothers, no matter how committed you may be to your career. In December, the Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development released a study showing that women’s salaries continue to lag those of men, particularly after women have children.

Effective January 1, 2013, Hydro Ottawa’s distribution rates have changed. A typical residential customer’s bill will increase by approximately 0.58 percent or $0.66 per month. Small commercial customers consuming 2,000 kWh per month and having a demand of less than 50 kilowatts will see their monthly bill decrease by about $5.35. Distribution rates are set by the Ontario Energy Board, based on applications submitted by Hydro Ottawa. The rate-setting process is open and transparent, with opportunities for public participation. In Hydro Ottawa’s rate application, major business priorities included the need to continually invest in infrastructure to keep services reliable; and to prepare for the industry-wide challenge

of an aging workforce by continuing and growing its trades apprenticeship programs.

Components of the Electricity Bill

Industry comparisons have consistently shown that Hydro Ottawa’s operating, maintenance and administration costs are below the provincial average. Distribution rates cover the cost of building and maintaining infrastructure. Hydro Ottawa’s distribution charges represent only 20.4 percent of the total bill for a typical residential customer. The remaining charges are passed on, without mark-up, to respective parties on behalf of customers.

EMC news - Jane Johnson’s house was all decked out in Christmas splendor, but there has been something missing for more than 30 years. Her daughter, Kimberley Anne Friendship passed away in 1977 from an aggressive form of childhood cancer called neuroblastoma. The disease often begins in the adrenal glands and by the time it has been diagnosed it has spread. Johnson said Kimmie was diagnosed on Easter weekend in 1976 and died in October of 1977 – when she was just eight years old. Despite her short life, Johnson said she left a legacy of love, selflessness and courage. In an effort to honour that memory, Johnson has written a cookbook called Kimmie’s Rainbow of Hope Cookbook. The book - which Johnson sells at the General and Civic campuses of the Ottawa Hospital - was printed by the Ottawa Hospital. Johnson sells it for $20 a copy and hopes to raise some money towards research. The recipes are all her own and Johnson credits the support of her surviving children, friends and family for the support to compile it and have it printed. “It took me about 30 years to put it together,” she said. The proceeds from the book will go to support neuroblastoma research at CHEO and SickKids in Toronto.

EMC news - Foodies from across the city are invited to the Glebe this month to enjoy some delectable fare in support of the community. Fine wines, local brews, finger foods and dozens of desserts from restaurants and shops in the neighbourhood will be served up at this year’s Taste in the Glebe on Jan. 17. The event, hosted by the Glebe Neighbourhood Activities Group, will take place at the Glebe Community Centre. “This is the best food and wine show in the city, hands down,” said Clare Rogers, one of the organizers for the event. There are always a few new restaurateurs each year, she said, but the theme is always the same - to eat, drink and be merry. “It’s a great time,” she said. “There are always fancy finger foods and some not so fancy

foods, but all are equally delicious.” Last year, Rogers said one restaurant made more than 400 fish tacos. “There were both gorgeous and delicious,” she said. Rogers added there also tends to be fun treats that stray away from strict gourmet fare, such as milkshakes provided by the Works last year. The annual event is part of the activities group’s fundraising initiative and the proceeds will go towards a community development fund, which focuses on raising money to help improve the Glebe Community Centre building and grounds. Rogers said the money raised at this year’s Taste in the Glebe will help fund the group’s upcoming landscaping project, which includes the addition of parking at the centre, as well as relocating the sidewalk in front of the parking area. “It’s to stop the danger of having cars backing out onto

the sidewalk,” Rogers said. The project will increase the available parking from six spaces and one handicap space to about 18. Bicycle racks will also be added. This project is completely funded by the community and so far the group has raised $80,000 for the parking project, while the landscaping portion intends to a community-driven volunteer initiative. The Taste in the Glebe, Rogers said, is also a huge community event, made possible because of the dedication of residents. “It’s a lot of work, but we have no shortage of volunteers who help out,” Rogers said. “It’s like one big community party and community event.” The event will welcome as many as 350 people from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Tickets are $50 and can be purchased at the centre or online at Residents interested in donating directly to the landscaping fund can contact the activities group at 613-233-8713.

Tight squeeze at Queenswood United Church Brier Dodge

EMC news - Queenwood United Church is renting out the Shenkman Arts Centre for an upcoming fundraiser for the same reason the fundraiser is being held: there just isn’t enough space. The church is working to raise money to construct a larger building on their existing property on 360 Kennedy Ln. E. in Orléans. Currently, the building is too small to hold any large events and children attending on Sundays walk to a portable on the property after the

start of the service. So for their upcoming concert – written by a member of the congregation – they’ve rented out space at Shenkman. “The (church) space doesn’t allow for the full production, plus audience,” said church council chair Randy Dunn. The musical, titled The Church of Karaoke, was written by Kathleen GradyThompson. “It’s quite an ambitious project for her,” said Minister Ed Gratton. “There are some serious issues to tackle, but with church, like a karaoke bar, there’s a place for you.”

The musical highlights the similarities between the acceptance of a karaoke bar and a church, Gratton said. The cast of about a dozen is mostly made up of members of the congregation, with Gratton even taking on a role. The two performances of the show will be on Jan. 19 at 7:30 p.m. and Jan. 20 at 2:30 p.m. Organizers hope to bring in $2,000 to $3,000 with the musical to add to the existing $40,000 already raised, Dunn said. “Right now our goal is $100,000,” Dunn said. In order to make the project feasible, the church council is looking to find a community partner to take over space in the church basement and build a bigger, pew-free upstairs for community rentals. “With certain populations, we are growing,” said Gratton, who has been Queenwood United minister for the past 13 years, adding that Sunday school, mid-week programs and after-school care are possibilities. He said that churches can’t just see themselves as a Sunday morning spot. “The programs provide a service and help attract and sustain a population,” Dunn said. Currently, about 75 families attend the United Church. The Seventh-day Adventist Church also uses the Queenswood United Church building on Saturdays. For more information about The Church of Karaoke, visit Tickets are on sale at Shenkman for $25.10 or $22.50 at the church.

Simulated birth arrives at Ottawa hospital stands in for a live patient during training. These mannequins have the capability to talk, cry, sweat and go into shock. During the simulation, doctors and nurses assessed the condition of the mother and baby before wheeling the patient into another room to have the Cesarean section performed. All told, the exercise took just over six minutes, a condensed version of a live situation.

Steph Willems

EMC news - The danger wasn’t real, but the situation presented at the Ottawa Hospital uOttawa’s Skills and Simulation Centre happens all too often. On Dec. 19, media and select members of the public watched as physicians delivered a baby by emergency Cesarean section after detecting a slowing fetal heartbeat. The difference today was that the baby – and the mother delivering it – were simulation mannequins. The exercise served to illustrate the tools and training that take place at the simulation centre, located on the grounds of the hospital’s Civic campus. The Ottawa Hospital Foundation is in the midst of raising $2.5 million to expand the centre and add state-of-the-art research tools and equipment. “The 21st century has brought with it great medical advances – we know more about diseases then we’ve ever known and our technology has really evolved to where we now do operations through incisions the size of buttonholes,� said centre director Dr. Viren Naik. “Unfortunately, our medical education hasn’t changed that much. The apprenticeship model is still the backbone of how we teach doctors today. There are some problems with that apprenticeship model, in that with the exponential growth in (medical knowledge), there may be too much to learn in a finite train-

Dr. Glenn Posner, obstetrics program director and lead instructor of ob/gyn simulation, said the exercise was an example of a “crash Cesarean section� carried out if it is determined the baby’s life is in danger. “These are the reasons we walk around in scrubs all day,� said Posner, describing the need for staff members to be ready for medical emergencies at all times during their shift, even when on break. The value of the exercises carried out in the centre lie in the analysis carried out afterwards, said Posner, where the doctors, nurses and specialists recall their actions and judge where any improvements could be made. “That’s where the real reaching value is in simulation,� said Posner. “It’s not even about the event that happened in here, it’s what happens next door during the debriefing, and how we learn from this experience.�

Mushrooms come out of the dark EMC news - Are you having trouble maintaining a healthy body weight? You are not alone. Almost two-thirds of Canadians are either overweight or obese. Finding appealing and effective ways to achieve and maintain a healthy weight is very important, especially this time of year when New Year’s resolutions start to take flight. Being overweight can increase the risk of developing chronic diseases such as, heart disease, diabetes and cancer. Carrying excess weight can put stress on joints causing pain and making it difficult to enjoy daily activities. Eating more fruits and vegetables, including fresh mushrooms, is a tasty way to help you keep your weight in check. Fresh mushrooms can help:

Control Your Appetite

• Fresh mushrooms are considered a low glycemic food because they contain very little carbohydrate. That means that they do not raise blood-sugar levels as much as carbohydrate-rich foods, such as bread. • Studies have shown that low-glycemic foods may help control appetite longer than those with a high-glycemic index. Consume Fewer Calories

• Fresh mushrooms are a perfect choice for reduced calorie diets as they have a high water content, are low in fat and contain some fibre: three factors that

help keep you feeling full with fewer calories. Researchers have found that people who eat satisfying portions of foods that have less calories have greater success at weight loss and maintenance. Boost the Flavours

• Mushrooms add a boost of flavour to foods, without adding extra fat, calories or sodium. Fresh mushrooms, shiitakes in particular, have a subtle savoury quality called umami that rounds out other flavours and adds taste satisfaction. This is why your steaks, pastas and pizzas often taste better with mushrooms. Recipes are available at www.mush

Low in Sugar Sweet on Flavour Farm Boy™ No Sugar Added Blueberry Pie Farm Boy™ No Sugar Added Blueberry Pie is the perfect ending to any great meal or a guilt-free indulgence. Baked fresh in store every day, these pies are bursting with naturally sweet blueberries and a blend No matter how you slice it, this pie is a sweet treat!

Skating on the Bonnechere


obody minded the winter back in the 1930s – the colder the better. When the temperature dipped below -30 C, we knew the Bonnechere would be frozen solid and it was safe to put on the skates. We kids were happy. My three brothers and Audrey had real skates, but mine were a despised pair of bobs, the two bladed kind that were as dull as dishwater, which I had to use until the day my teacher arrived at the rink behind the Northcote School with a pair of black skates for me. It didn’t bother me a bit that they were miles too big for me. Mother simply stuffed the toes with Father’s wool socks and I was ready to hit the ice. Once the Bonnechere was ready the boys, which always included the Thoms from the next farm, began the job of cleaning off the river. There were no fancy shovels back then. Father had nailed a piece of heavy tin to a board and that worked perfectly. It was impossible to avoid cracks and bits of ice sticking up out of the frozen river, but there was enough of a surface cleared that a dozen of us could skate at the same time. Surviving many winters, and summers too, was the lean-to Father made to shelter us when we wanted a rest. It was made of several boards nailed to a couple two-byfours and propped against a cluster of cedars which had been cleared of their lower branches. Two small nail kegs held a plank so we could sit

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories down under the lean-to. At the time, I doubted there was a better place to skate in all of Renfrew County. Of course I never went very far from the house without a lunch. So always, as well as toting down my skates to the river, I carried a brown paper bag with a sandwich or two and perhaps a cookie. I had to guard this bag as if it were money from the bank, since I learned one day that when I went to have my snack, all that was left was a bit of wax paper scrunched up inside. No one admitted to the

goal, simply two blocks of wood about five feet apart at either end of the cleared surface. My youngest brother Earl, the smallest of all the boys, was always the goalie, which he didn’t relish one bit. He wanted to skate! Earl accomplished this by letting so many goals in that he had to be replaced – he was no dummy. Of course there was no money for a puck, but by the time winter had really settled in and everything was frozen solid, horse apples were perfect substitutes. There was

Father had nailed a piece of heavy tin to a board and that worked perfectly. dastardly deed, but I strongly suspected my brother Emerson – I still do to this day. The Thoms were big strapping boys, like my two older brothers, and they pretty well took over the ice. They played hockey, dominating most of the ice surface, and we girls were relegated to a small corner of the cleared area. There was no net for the

always a little pile of them sitting at one end of the river rink, so that when one split apart another was always at the ready. I shuddered when I saw my brothers with a pitch fork, sifting through the manure pile at the back door of the barn until they found just the right size and shape to use in their hockey games.

clothes draped over the wood box beside the Findlay Oval to dry, our cheeks would be crimson and often I could barely keep my eyes open to eat my supper. I would look around the table, laden with food, all produced on our own farm, and I would think I was just about the luckiest little girl in all of Renfrew County.


Fun on the Bonnechere went all Sunday afternoon. When it came close to the time we had to head back to do the chores, we went to the lean-to and took off our skates and trudged home. We always left enough time between skating and the chores to allow us the treat

about our rink on the Bonnechere. There was nothing fancy about the skates we wore – my brothers and sister’s coming from a shoemaker’s store in Renfrew, traded for a few chickens and some of Mother’s sticky buns. Winter was a time of great frivolity. When the day came to a close and with our outer

Children’s book takes readers to the African savannahs Jennifer McIntosh

Brier Dodge/Metroland

Battle for the cup Players from all over the world were in Ottawa Dec. 28 for the first games in the Bell Capital Cup. Sam Albert, left, from the Cumberland Junior Grads battles Jacob Villeneuve of the South Stormont Selects in the major atom B division at the Nepean Sportsplex.

EMC news - Despite the winter wind, children can wander into a world of sun and sand thanks to a new novel by Kars resident Jennifer Bergin. The book – called Jungle Jim and Jungle Jen in the African Savannahs – is the first of a series of geographicallythemed adventures. The savannahs are characterized by their ecosystem and wildlife. One of the more famous regions is the Serengeti in north Tanzania. Bergin, a native of Barrhaven, said she would like to explore the Congo and Australia in subsequent books. With the help of editors Edward and Ruth Madziire, who came to Barrhaven via Zimbabwe, Bergin was able to accurately describe the African locale and wildlife. “Like Jen in the book, I learned about the animals from patient teachers,” Bergin said.


Jennifer Bergin, left, is pictured with Edward and Ruth Madziire on the back cover of her new book. From mongoose meetings to elephant rides, the main character Jen learns from Jim – a patient biologist. She even spends time with a local tribe. It took Bergin, a mother of three, about a year to illustrate and put together the book. “I kind of got away from it, but I have been a cartoonist for years,” Bergin said, adding she has done cartoons for the

Clarion and the Barrhaven Independent in the past. “I just started doodling and the idea came to me,” she said. Bergin said it was convenient because she could publish the books on demand, which brought the cost down. “It has been a great experience, I am really looking forward to getting started on the next books,” she said.

CP Holiday Train Grant for parents of murdered or missing children grant now available pulls hard in 2012 EMC news – A new federal income support for parents of murdered or missing children grant is expected to support families affected by a serious loss. The announcement was made in Nepean on Dec. 30 and came into effect on Jan. 1. “This new grant will ease the financial pressure on parents struggling to cope with the death or disappearance of a child, said Kellie Leitch of Human Resources and Skills Development. The new grant will provide assistance to eligible parents who suffer a loss of income as they take time away from work to cope with the death or disappearance of a child as a result of a probable Criminal Code offence. This new grant is expected to support about 1,000 families each year. It will provide $350 per week in income support for up to 35 weeks. “Our organization is very pleased with this grant which will benefit victims of crime,” said Sharon Rosenfeldt, president of Victims of Violence/ Canadian Centre for Missing Children, which is based on Centrepointe Drive. “We are grateful for the commitment

Local food banks and Hurricane Sandy rebuilding get boost


Kellie Leitch announces new funds to help families of murdered or missing children on Dec. 30 at the Victims of Violence/Canadian Centre for Missing Children. the government has shown in responding to the needs of victims of crime.” In addition, through the Helping Families in Need Act,

the Canada Labour Code has been amended to allow for unpaid leave and to protect the jobs of parents whose child dies or disappears as a result

EMC news - Results for the 14th year of the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train are in and the mission of making a difference one stop at a time has resulted in one of the most successful rolling fundraisers for local food shelves along its Canadian and United States rail network. The 2012 train raised more than $1 million and 180,000 kilograms of food for local food bank programs in Canada and the U.S. This year’s train wrapped up in Port Moody, B.C., on Dec. 18. From the end of November until Dec. 18, two trains travelled across Canada and the U.S. raising money, food, and awareness for local food banks and hunger issues at over 150 communities.

Making this year’s threeweek trek even more important was the support for Hurricane Sandy rebuilding efforts. At the Minneapolis event, CP presented Feeding America with $250,000. In Canada, the Holiday Train program received special recognition with one of the inaugural Prime Minister’s Volunteer Awards. The award recognizes the role the “train of lights” plays in helping communities and food banks and the hard work and dedication of thousands of community and employee volunteers who continue to make the annual rolling food bank fundraiser a success. Thousands of Holiday Train supporters were treated to live performances on the modified boxcar stage. On the Canadian Holiday Train, Brothers Dube, Miss Emily, and Doc Walker lit up the stage while on the U.S. Holiday Train, Tracey Brown and the Claytones entertained supporters of local food shelves along the U.S. northeast and Midwest.

Pet Adoptions





ID#A151616 Lolo is a 7 month old, white female Dutch rabbit. She was surrendered to our shelter by her owner on November 28, but is now available for adoption. This sweet natured girl would make a perfect pet for a family with children! Rabbits are intelligent and social animals that make affectionate and rewarding family pets as long as their needs are met. Plenty of human attention, daily exercise and play, nutritious food and hay are all important elements of proper rabbit care. Given the appropriate care, rabbits can live up to ten years, so the decision to adopt a rabbit must not be taken lightly.

Britany is a one year-old black and white spayed female domestic shorthair cat who loves to greet everyone she meets! She was brought to our shelter as a stray on October 15 but is now available for adoption. This lovely lady is full of cuddles and purrs and would make a great addition to your family! Britany is currently at one of our Pet Adoption Locations (PAL). If you are interested in adopting Britany, make sure to swing by Petsmart in Orleans!

For more information about these or other animals available for adoption, please call the adoption Centre at 613-725-3166 ext. 258 or visit www.

Hi, I’m Edmund a Yorkie mix…. I was born in La Belle Province nearly two years ago. A few weeks ago my original owners shipped me off to the S.P.C.A. de L’Outaouais…they said I barked too much and that I wasn’t very friendly. After getting some needles…ouch! They sent me to The Animal Health Care Facility at Algonquin College in Ottawa for general grooming and some dental work. They also gave me an operation to prevent me from making puppies…ouch again! They then took my picture and posted it on a web site to see if anyone would like to adopt me. All the students said I was very handsome and they didn’t think it would be long before someone would want me. They were right. My new mommy and daddy love me very much. They call me Sir Edmund sometimes but mostly Eddie. They’re always cuddling me, taking me for lots of walks and giving me healthy treats. I think I’ll keep them. I’ve met lots of new friends in Barrhaven and the only time I bark is when someone rings our doorbell. Thank you for reading my story.

Owning a dog can be a very rewarding experience and how you train your dog has a big impact on whether your relationship will be one of companionship or frustration. A big mistake people often make when they first bring their dog home is to give him too much freedom. You may think you’re being nice, but in fact, you may be doing more harm than good. Adopting a training program from the beginning is a fun way to get to know your dog and sets the stage for a successful relationship. What is training? Training is a form of communication between a dog and his owner. Since dogs cannot speak, it is up to the owner to learn how to communicate with the dog. All owners can benefit from training classes, even if they have previously owned a dog or trained many in the past; remember that every dog is different. What is your role in training? If you don’t train your dog, he will train himself — and not necessarily in a good way! Your dog will learn from you. By taking an active role in teaching your dog, you will be able to train the dog the way you want. Knowing your dog Similar to children, dogs understand different things at different stages of their development. Below you will find a brief description of the kinds of things you can expect from your dog as she grows. Please note that these are only guidelines. Some dogs progress or mature slower than others. Be prepared to see behaviour change over time. 0–4 months

EMC news- Most of us would agree that we dodged winter last year, but it is certainly back this year. With winter, we get fresh snow – one of the most beautiful and peaceful things to witness, but with it comes the burden of shovelling. When you consider that the average shovelful of snow weighs two kilograms, the average driveway may hold hundreds of kilos of snow. Before you grab your shovel, consider these tips to help keep you injury free: • Warm up: A tight, stiff body is a recipe for injury, so take a few minutes to warmup. Overall conditioning like walking and

some warm-up exercises to get the blood flowing and the muscles loosened up can save you a lot of pain later. • Use proper posture: Try to push the snow to the side rather than lifting heavy amounts of snow. When you do shovel, let your knees, hips and arm muscles do the heavy lifting, and avoid twisting your back. • Use the right type of shovel: Your shovel should be about chest height, allowing you to keep your back straight when lifting. A short handle forces you to bend more to lift the snow, while a tootall shovel makes the weight heavier. Us-

ing a lightweight pusher-style shovel will help to protect your back. • Timing is everything: Frequent shovelling allows you to move smaller amounts of snow at a time, and fresh snow will be easier to move than packed snow. Try to shovel in the afternoon rather than the early morning, as many spinal disc injuries occur in the morning when there is increased pressure on the disc. • Take it slow: Shovelling isn’t a competitive sport, so take your time and listen to your body. Take frequent rest breaks and stop shoveling immediately if you feel chest or back pain.

Do you want to quit smoking?

You’ve made up your mind to say goodbye to cigarettes. Now where should you start to make sure you can keep your good resolutions? Here is some valuable advice. Congratulations! If you are taking the time to look at this document, it means you have just taken the most important step to becoming a nonsmoker: making the decision to quit smoking. It will not always be easy to refuse a cigarette, but the right tools and your willpower can enable you to reach this goal. The results you will get are truly worth the efforts required. Four important steps to follow in order to quit smoking To successfully quit smoking, you have to go through several steps. You cannot commit to this project impulsively. To succeed, you need to be well prepared and have a plan to help you overcome the cravings for a cigarette. 1st step: Establish the reasons that motivate you to quit smoking During nicotine withdrawal, the cravings for smoking can be difficult to overcome.You’ll need to remember the advantages of being a non-smoker and the disadvantages of smoking. So, it is important to identify them at the beginning of the process. 2nd step: Understand your habit In many cases, you essentially smoke by “habit”. In fact, you may have taken the habit of smoking at certain moments of the day, like after meals, with your coffee in the morning, while driving your car, when having a drink with friends or when you are stressed. By identifying why and when you smoke, it will be easier to find replacement solutions. 3rd step: Identify the tools that will help you quit smoking Before choosing a date to quit smoking, you must make sure you have everything you need to succeed. Is your motivation strong enough to go ahead? Did you clearly identify your using habits and, more importantly, did you find replacement solutions? Below is a list of available treatments, or anti-smoking aids. Nicotine replacement therapies With products such as the nicotine patches (Habitrol®, etc.), the nicotine chewing gums or lozenges (Thrive®, etc.), you will be taking in less nicotine than you would get from smoking. An inhaler-type product is also available. These products help you overcome the symptoms associated with giving up cigarettes and help you resist the temptation to smoke. Nicotine replacement therapies are recommended for most smokers who want to quit. You can get these products without a prescription; simply ask your pharmacist. Talking to your pharmacist is also the best way to know if you are a good candidate for this type of treatment, and to obtain the information you need to benefit from it fully. If you have a prescription from your doctor, the products can be refunded by your medical insurance. Nicotine-free treatments • Zyban®, available by prescription only, can help you quit smoking. This medication acts directly on the brain to reduce the desire for nicotine and the symptoms associated with withdrawal. The exact way in which it does this is not yet known. • Champix® is the most recent anti-smoking medication to appear on the market. It acts directly on the brain’s nicotine receptors, at the same spot as nicotine does. It helps diminish both the smoking urge and withdrawal symptoms. In clinical trials, Champix® was associated with higher rates of quitting than was Zyban®. Champix® is also a prescription drug. Whatever treatment you are considering to help you quit smoking, you should talk to your health professional first to make sure you choose the best option based on your health status and medical history. 4th step: Do it Now that you have chosen a quitting date, it is time to act. Get rid of your cigarettes, ashtrays and lighters. Congratulate yourself for every day of progress and remind yourself frequently why you felt you should quit smoking. Some advice to help you control your intense needs for nicotine • Drink a lot of water. Water also helps liquefy your bronchial secretions and cleans your lungs. • Nibble on fruit and raw vegetables. • Try to avoid alcohol, coffee or other beverages you used to drink while smoking. • If you miss the feeling of holding a cigarette, keep your hands busy by playing with a pen, a paper clip, a marble, etc. • After meals, instead of smoking, brush your teeth or go for a walk. • Exercise, stretch and move. • Take deep breaths, hold your breath to a count of five. Repeat the exercise as long as your craving for a cigarette lasts. • Try to avoid people or situations that could incite you to smoke, at least for some time. • Learn new ways of having fun, relaxing and taking care of yourself. If you are motivated and well prepared, you really can quit smoking once and for all! Take advantage of all the resources available to you: anti-smoking aids, support groups, professional counseling, etc. For more information, go to your CLSC or the smoking cessation centre nearest you. Consult your pharmacist to determine what would be the best method to help you stop smoking.
