The kids played first, with the adults taking to the ice after a pizza lunch.

development at 5911 Meadowglen Dr. that would see 54 townhomes built on the former Roger Bergeron and Son produce site. The turnout on Feb. 13 at the Orléans library was so high that residents had to leave with the promise of a second public meeting to be held in a larger facility. The major concern was the type of housing –higher density stacked townhomes – would not fit with the current single family detached homes nearby. “They’re not saying no,

they’re saying as it now, is it’s incompatible,” said André Thivierge, who is on an ad hoc residents’ committee, because the area does not have a community association to represent it. “There’s a huge contrast; it’s two planets. We want a development that is comfortable fitting with the community.” Orléans Boulevard

There are currently townhouses across the street from the property on Orléans Boulevard, but residents argued

their density is lower than what has been proposed by Domicile, the developer, for the Meadowglen site. The proposed townhomes would consist of six buildings with eight units each, and one building with six units. And residents are concerned that the contrasting townhomes at the entrance to the community will bring down the house prices for their single-family homes. The entrance to the proposed townhomes would be located on Meadowglen Drive, with the homes back-

ing onto La Chapelle Street. They are also bordered by Orléans Boulevard. In the development proposal, the developer said the location is appropriate for the stacked townhouses because of the location at an arterial and major collector road, and the proximity of the townhomes across Orléans Boulevard. “He can put that proposal forward; whether or not it gets approved is another story,” said Coun. Rainer Bloess. See CITY, page 2

City encouraging infill developments Continued from page 1

The proposal is still with city planners, who can make a recommendation to council. The residents used the meeting to voice their many concerns to Domicile representative, David Chick, the councillor and city staff. City planner Michael Boughton is the lead planner on the proposal. Boughton said in the 90 comments he received from residents, the top complaint was compatible character, followed by height and mass, traffic and parking. He told residents that their comments “will have a lot of weight” in his evaluation of the application. The residents would like to see the city planner reject the proposal based on a city policy that says a zoning change cannot cause adverse effects. The city has a list of criteria to be used to determine suitability, which will define whether it would cause “adverse effects” or not. Several residents with homes nearby worried that the taller townhomes would allow a view into their backyards and properties, especially with balconies included with the units. They also worried that the one parking spot allowed per unit would not be sufficient. Keeping with city standards of visitor parking per unit, there are 11 visitor parking spots proposed for the townhomes, up from the original six

Domicile proposed. Residents raised issues with the traffic studies, saying that they want new data entered for more peak times than the July data collected would have captured. There was also concern that putting in smaller townhomes would attract more renters. Chick said that Domicile wanted to sell to people who want to live in the homes themselves, but Thivierge said they have no control over who lives in the units once they are sold. He said that the issue with renters is that they don’t always care for the properties as well as owners living in their own homes do. infill

The city has encouraged development of infill areas, expanding growth in already established areas such as the vacant lot on Meadowglen in the Official Plan. One resident asked Chick if Domicile would consider a different proposal with a lower density, but Chick said the company is “firm on the proposal.” “It is important to work with us,” Thivierge said. “There will have to be compromises on our part, but you will have to compromise as well. He said that the company’s determination to see the current proposal constructed “scares the hell” out of him.

Brier Dodge/Metroland

A meeting about a proposed townhouse development at 5911 Meadowglen Dr. had a much larger turnout than originally expected. The Orléans branch of the Ottawa Public Library meeting room is designed to accommodate 60, so some residents left and will attend a second public meeting still to be announced. The development proposal still needs to go to the city’s planning committee and to council for approval.

“There’s an issue of social responsibility,” Thivierge said. “There are definitely people prepared to appeal.”

There will be another meeting due to the large interest in the meeting, with the date and time still to be announced.

No take two for the Orléans Mayfair Theatre Theatre closes after first full year of operation Brier Dodge

EMC news - Anyone who was hoping to catch a movie at the Orléans Centrum is out of luck, because the Mayfair has now closed. On Feb. 13, the landlord posted a termination of lease notice on the theatre doors. While co-owner Lee Demarbre admits he was behind in rent, he said after the first full year of business, things

had begun to pickup at the theatre. The theatre opened under the Mayfair name in December 2011, and the first year was quieter than Demarbre expected. But the recent freeze brought in a steady stream of business, and January 2013 was the Mayfair’s busiest month ever. “We had lineups, 200 people on the street, parking lot was always full, record sales, Demarbre said. “Tuesday (Feb. 12) we had like 600 people it the building, it was super. And Wednesday morning I woke up to my locks changed.” Demarbre and his partner also own the Mayfair on Bank Street, but the two are

separate businesses entities. “We’re surprised and shocked, I thought we would be able to see eye to eye with the landlord,” Demarbre said. “I’m disappointed that we couldn’t work something out. I’m just really sad about it.” The termination of lease notice posted on the Mayfair door said that the business is behind in rent by more than $190,000. I was behind in paying the rent, but Orléans is just a different animal than we expected, Demarbre said. With the ups and downs, he thought that with a full year under the theatre’s belt, year two was going to be a changing point when the time and financial investments would

start to pay off. “It was a lot of blood, sweat and tears. We finally got to a place where I thought we could continue for 10 years,” he said. The owners have spoken with several theatre employees about working at the Mayfair location on Bank Street, but there are only so

many available jobs, and most of the employees live close to the Orléans Centrum location. The Orléans theatre would show Hollywood movies several weeks after they’re released in order to get the films at a lower cost. Local filmmaker Max Moskal was scheduled to show his documentary This Is Hannibal about Orléans wrestler Devon Nicholson on March 3 at the Orléans Mayfair. They were forced to reschedule, with the Bank Street Mayfair accommodating the film instead. And while Demarbre accepts the landlord’s decision, he said he would be willing to sit down to try and work something out.

“I’m open to any ideas,” he said. Members, who bought into an annual discount program, were quick to take to the Mayfair’s Facebook page to express disappointment that the local theatre wasn’t able to stay, many commenting they loved the spot to catch a flick. Demarbre is an Orléans resident himself, who was often out at the Centrum location. The independent theatre was also one of the few places in Ottawa to show Frenchlanguage films. “Thank you to our members who were loyal. We had some great people come in,” Demarbre said. “And I’d like to say sorry it didn’t work out.”

Residents still cautious about digestor in Blackburn Brier Dodge

Megan Grittani-Livingston for Special Olympics Team Canada

Jacob Mathews races in the Special Olympics Winter Games in Korea. Mathews won a gold medal in the 1,600-metre and a silver medal in the 800-metre snowshoe races.

OrlĂŠans Special Olympian wins two world medals Brier Dodge

EMC sports - Jacob Mathews was the only Ottawa athlete to travel to the 2013 Special Olympics Winter Games in Korea, and he represented the national capital well, returning home with two medals. The OrlĂŠans snowshoe racer took home the gold medal in the 1,600-metre race in his division, and a silver medal in the 800-metre race. The Special Olympics Winter Games are held every four years, one year before the Olympic Games. This year, they were held in PyeongChang, South Korea, from Jan. 29 to Feb. 5. At the Special Olympics, athletes are divided into divisions based on their times in the preliminary heats so that they race against athletes of similar abilities.

Mathews raced personal best times in all of his races in Korea, said his mother and coach, Rachel Mathews, who travelled with snowshoe athletes to the Games as a coach. After a divisioning mix-up separating women and men, he didn’t originally receive the silver medal, but found out he had won a second medal before leaving from Korea. The gold medal reflected a dedicated training plan that included hill training and distance running before the Games. “That trail was so hard,� said Rachel of the 1,600-metre race. “If he hadn’t done the hill training he would have been sunk. The last 100 metres was a flat stretch and he sprinted through that last stretch.� She said he was elated to win the gold medal and it allowed him to relax more for the rest of the Games. “It was exciting.

EMC news - A proposed anerobic digestor in the Greenbelt next to Blackburn Hamlet has residents worried about emissions and odours, and the organization that plans to operate the equipment isn’t taking questions. The digestor would be operated by Just Food, which has leased NCC land on Tauvette Street for a system that would break down kitchen scraps from nearby restaurants. Many residents at a recent public meeting were under the impression that the digestor was an incinerator, said Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess. “There was some misinformation and misunderstanding about what this was about,� he said. The proposal is for an enclosed digestor. The digested materials produce methane gas, which the generator would burn – heating greenhouses on the property and selling the electricity produced back to the power grid. The digestor is being proposed under the feed-in-tariff program of the Ontario Power Authority. The land is zoned for agricultural use, so the digestor meets that designation. However, the NCC can control if it renews the lease to use the land or not, and what is acceptable use of the land. The provincial power authority will approve

or deny the FIT application. Bloess said that some Blackburn Hamlet residents still feel that the use is too industrial for the area, and want to see the Greenbelt preserved. Just Food is a local organization that wants to help support a sustainable food system for the city. The group already operates a farm and greenhouse system at the Tauvette property. Just Food’s excutive director Moe Garahan would not comment on the proposal to media until the presentation provided at the Feb. 7 meeting in Blackburn Hamlet is ready to be distributed, which could be several weeks. “It’s too complicated to explain in a sound bite,â€? she said. “Our only comment is that we’ll be able to (share content) as soon as we’re done putting it together.â€? Staff at Ottawa-OrlĂŠans MPP Phil McNeely’s office said he is supportive of the project, as long as everything is in order for the proposal. They said Just Food told them there would only be one truck per day accessing the property. “Just Food indicated that this is a very preliminary stage in the process and there will be much more public consultation to come,â€? said Laura Dudas, the Blackburn Hamlet Community Association president.

Information still to come on digestor Continued from Page 4

Dudas said Garahan was able to answer residents questions at the meeting, including concerns about odour, truck traffic, noise levels and the size of the physical digestor itself. “Going forward, the issue will be in terms of continuing to raise questions as they come up,” Dudas said. “I’d be reluctant to say we’re in support or opposed because we’re in that grey area. I think there

are a lot of ideas they need to address before we decide.” She also said residents who use the site for walking their dogs were concerned about accessibility after the digester would be built. Moving forward, the BHCA will continue to communicate with Just Food and relay the information via the community association website at “Any change has concerns to it; people are naturally suspicious,” Bloess said.

Ottawa’s #1 Ranked Soccer Club

OSU Celebrates 10 years, rise into leading local soccer club It’s been 10 years since members of South Nepean United and the Osgoode-Rideau Soccer Association approved the merger that gave life to Ottawa South United Soccer Club, and set out on an ambitious quest to become the best youth club in Ottawa and amongst the best in Ontario and Canada. “We thought if we followed the principles and vision we setup, that it would realistically take over 15 years,” recalls OSU Founding and current President Bill Michalopulos. OSU is now the only Ottawa club to: earn a Gold Level Club Excellence Award from the Ontario Soccer Association, top the Terra Ontario soccer club rankings and facilitate over 80 soccer scholarships for OSU’s players to universities /colleges all over North America. “By any tangible measure I think we’ve exceeded our vision, set the operating benchmark for soccer clubs and OSU is well resourced, motivated and organized to take on the challenges of the next 10 years,” Michalopulos adds. Both original clubs recognized that there was a gap at the time in how soccer was delivered at the grassroots level in Ottawa and frustrated by the then common organizational and operating models, which were not conducive to the proper development of players and coaches. They realized that with ORSA’s management expertise and South Nepean’s strong soccer programs, combining forces offered great potential.

Brier Dodge/Metroland

Winterlude comes to Shenkman

“It was a good marriage of two complimentary clubs,” says Michalopulos. “There was an understanding that 1 + 1 = 3 or that the sum is greater than the two parts coming together. We were simply determined to see our youth play better soccer and have more fun doing it.”

Winterlude came to Orléans on Feb. 9 as pancakes, activities and Winterlude mascots visited the Shenkman Arts Centre. Smith Simpson, 2, was enchanted by the giant Winterlude mascots that were sitting with the children and listening to the storytellers.


Considering the significant challenge of bringing two clubs together under one banner, it was a fairly smooth transition from the start, reflects OSU founding member Rene Braendli. “The leadership from both clubs wanted to make it happen, and I think that was the key,” explains the long-time South Nepean soccer leader and current OSU exec. “And we still have the people to push that vision along.” The new alliance translated well on the ground level too. There’s a family feel that runs strong on teams throughout the club, highlights OSU coach Gord MacGregor. “It’s an environment where we’re all there together, supporting each other no matter what,” describes the former ORSA player. “It’s important that every player, every parent and every coach has that camaraderie. Everyone really is a family. It’s like one big, giant team. OSU hit many key milestones along the way to its 10th anniversary (see sidebar for more details). This includes establishing strategic alliances with leading clubs in the U.S. and Europe – the Dallas Texans and Everton FC – and providing a dedicated staff approach to running a community club in order to provide better programs so players can develop and have more fun.

Ottawa Valley Tours

“We still depend on our volunteers and we’re very thankful we have our volunteers to carry most of the load,” Michalopulos notes, adding that those same people recognize the indispensable value of having full-time staff such as Jim Lianos, Club General Manager since almost Day 1. “It wasn’t sustainable. That’s the old model,” Michalopulos emphasizes. “We knew we had to improve on the management organization of the club in order to perform at a certain level in a sustainable manner.




“We were able to put together an environment for excellence. On a grand level, we have simply pushed soccer forward in Ottawa and improved the level of play. That’s our biggest accomplishment.”

A major project – which now stands as a physical symbol of the club’s progress and perseverance over many years – was the construction of six playing fields in Manotick to accommodate a growing player base that’s now exceeded 6,500 – from youth recreational/ developmental soccer to competitive/elite, through to the adult & senior levels.

Within two years, a home clubhouse will be built at George Nelms Sports Park, a further signal of the bright future that lies ahead for OSU. Also playing a key role in ongoing success will be UEFA ‘A’ Licence Coach Paul Harris – a recent groundbreaking addition as OSU Club Head Coach via Everton’s famed youth academy “We want to mimic the best of what they do overseas here in order to improve soccer development for our players and coaches,” Lianos underlines. “And Paul knows the Everton way as well as anyone.” Providing an environment for high performance players to move onto the next level is an OSU trademark, with over 80 players receiving scholarships to play university and college soccer in Canada and the U.S., and others recruited into professional team academies. Without discounting the tremendous success OSU has achieved in consistently winning championships locally, becoming a force in the province’s top youth league, and even besting top opponents from around the world at the exclusive Disney College Showcase and Dallas Cup events, perhaps the biggest source of pride is seeing the deeper impact the club has made on members’ lives over 10 years. “We’re a huge part of the community. You walk around in the summer and every field is being used by the club and you see soccer players all over the place,” Braendli smiles. “It’s been a fantastic journey, but this is not the end. We’re still pushing ahead and we’ve still got to do better. We cannot stand still.”

Sometimes a little public consultation is all it takes


he city made the right decision when it backed off a plan to establish a temporary parking lot on Lees Avenue near Springhurst Park. The existing greenspace at 160 Lees Ave. is used by a broad spectrum of residents, from those living in nearby apartment towers to dog owners taking their pets out for a walk to members of local rugby teams, playing a key recreational role in the

surrounding community. But that role has come under threat in recent months. As part of planning work associated with the construction of the city’s light rail line, the site was identified as both a construction staging area for the redevelopment of the Lees transit station and as overflow parking for staff at the University of Ottawa, who were themselves being displaced by LRT construction near the main campus. Upon learning about the

plans, the Old Ottawa East community stood firm in opposition and with the help of Capital Coun. David Chernushenko, convinced the city to back off not only its construction staging area plans, but to relocate the parking lot to a different site on Lees Avenue to boot. The exercise has shown how important public consultation is in the municipal democratic process. A great deal of the time, the city needs to tune out public out-

cry on controversial issues. When faced with a decision that affects a large number of residents, a narrow view will not create effective policy. The LRT system itself will ruffle feathers in certain neighbourhoods when the bulldozers arrive to carve a path through the city. Light rail, however, is something being constructed to serve hundreds of thousands of residents and to ensure sustainable growth of the city in the future. The city cannot

afford to bow to narrow interests. The placement of a parking lot, on the other hand, that will only serve a narrow constituency – in this case the university – is the exact type of decision where close consultation with local residents is required. It’s the sort of decision that requires careful consideration of all available options, because it will have a profound effect on this narrow constituency. At first, the city didn’t

do that. It looked at a map, saw a convenient location and proceeded with its plans. If it had involved the public from the beginning, discovered how important the greenspace was to area residents and investigated other options, a messy public relations exercise could have been avoided. In the end, the city did the right thing. We can only hope it learns from the experience and doesn’t make the same mistake again.


The pause that refreshes CHARLES GORDON Funny Town


was at the National Arts Centre recently to see Metamorphoses which was, like all NAC Theatre productions, strikingly staged. Even if the play doesn’t knock you out, its visual presentation is always going to be interesting. In this case, it was more interesting than usual because it was played mostly in the water – a kind of wading pool at the front part of the stage and a deep tank with transparent sides at the back. The actors were in and out of the water. Somebody even smoked a cigarette underwater, which is a trick I’m glad I never learned how to do. It was hard enough to quit. The presence of the water, including a kind of constant rain from above the stage, prompted a mildly critical comment in a largely favourable review from the Globe and Mail: “A constant rain of water tumbling down on the upper level of the set is one misjudgment; its aesthetic value is cancelled out by the damage it wreaks acoustically and the suggestions it sends to bladders in the audience (particularly since there’s no intermission).� Actually, the play is only an hour and 20 minutes long, so the lack of an intermission was unlikely to produce a crisis. But the comment did get me to ponder what seems to be a general trend in our theatres to eliminate intermission whenever possible. Some of this may have to do with a trend to shorter plays and concerts: it seems silly to stop an hour-long play in the middle. But for longer plays, or even movies – I remember visiting the snack bar in the middle of Ben Hur and Spartacus, and I’m sure Gone With

the Wind had an intermission – eliminating the intermission takes away what seems to be an important part of the theatre-going experience. That’s the part where the theatre-goers stretch their legs, wander the lobby and discuss what they’ve seen and what might happen next. They bump into people they know and ask how they’re enjoying it so far. Maybe they have an argument. Maybe they pick up on something they missed. Why was the tall guy so angry? Oh, so he was her former husband. However the discussion goes, it helps them to focus on what they have seen and are about to see. Theatre-going, concert-going and movie-going are not supposed to be solitary experiences. They should be social, with people sharing ideas and enthusiasms. That doesn’t happen if they just walk in, sit in their seats for the performance and head for their cars as soon as the event is over. This is recognized at many concerts, where part of the fun is chatting about the music at half-time. And it is true of professional sports. In both cases, there is the added benefit of lightening the wallets of the hungry and thirsty. But theatre is different. As the parent of actors, I know the reasoning: The director and cast have worked hard to establish a mood, to involve the audience so completely that they forget they are sitting in a theatre; when the curtain goes down at intermission, the spell is broken and has to be re-established all over again when the curtain goes up. That’s a persuasive argument. Mind you, a hockey player could argue the same thing – “We really had it going and then the buzzer went and when the next period started we lost our momentum and everything changed.� Hockey players have learned to live it. True, it’s a bit more difficult for actors, who have to stick to a script and can’t just go and punch somebody to get the momentum going again. But they should be able, after intermission, to take consolation in the notion that the audience is fresh and not restless and maybe better able to understand why the tall guy was so angry.

Respect lacking at Orléans event To the editor,

Re: “MP, senator mock Chief Theresa Spence” (EMC Orléans, Feb. 7. I was dismayed to read your article where we learned that the local provincial Progressive Conservative candidate invited Senator Patrick Brazeau, his client, to speak with a small crowd of local Conservatives and not only mock but insult his fellow First Nation leader. Say what you want of the Idle No More movement, but in my opinion everybody in Canada should have access to clean drinking water and most importantly, be respected by its government. There is a saying that “You

are as good as the people around you.” Your article mentioned that the provincial Progressive Conservative candidate in Ottawa-Orléans is Senator Brazeau’s lawyer. Senator Brazeau praised him for standing by him and defending him “because what he has done is right, honest, and what is needed in this country.” In light of recent events, I will respectfully give the benefit of doubt and await a fair trial, but in my view such a close association between the senator and the Progressive Conservative candidate is certainly enough to lose my vote. I believe that our elected representatives and candidates should be held to a higher

standard. I see no reason why the ethics and values we teach our children should not apply to them. Is this too much to ask? Ottawa-Orléans has tremendous potential that would certainly be unlocked if we put aside petty political differences, acknowledged what we have in common – our community – and worked together in a respectful and constructive manner. Our community is a great place to live and raise a family. As we aspire that our kids learn to be model citizens, let’s hope that someday our politicians will do the same. André Brisebois Orléans

The unique modernist style of the homes in Briarcliffe, part of Rothwell Heights, will be recognized as possibly the first heritage district in Canada that protects a mid-century neighbourhood.

Ottawa eyes ‘modern’ heritage Laura Mueller

EMC news - Ottawa will be home to one of the first “modern” heritage districts in Canada. After studying the Briarcliffe neighbourhood since 2010, city heritage staff determined that the area, which features Jetson’s-like midcentury-modernist homes, is worthy of a formal designation that comes with increased protection for the area’s architecture. The neighbourhood was created as a co-op for scientists working at the nearby National Research Council in the 1960s. The clutch of 23 homes in a rocky area along the Ottawa River sprung up as the “young, fresh minds” who came to work at the NRC were looking for a space to live in harmony with the land – a modernist ideal, said Natalie Whidden, one of the Carleton University students involved in a 2010 study that informed the heritage designation project. “If Don Draper wanted to live in Ottawa, this is where he would live,” joked Whid-

den, referring to the iconic character from the stylized TV program Mad Men, set in the 1960s. The push to designate the area picked up in earnest in December of 2011, when city council approved a bylaw preventing any alterations to or demolitions of buildings in Briarcliffe during the oneyear heritage study. That move came just before a resident of the neighbourhood, Seema Narula Aurora, got the planning committee’s support for part of a plan to renovate her home and add a large garage for a boat. But an outcry from heritage conservation advocates led council to rethink the decision and put a stop on any changes to buildings in the area until a decision on the heritage district had been made. That home is the Duncan House (19 Kindle Crt.) – one of the most significant houses in the potential district, according to a city staff report. The house was built in 1966 and named for Thaddeus Duncan, one of the original four members of the Briarcliffe co-op. It was designed

by Paul Schoeler and is considered an “excellent example of mid-century modern residential architecture in Ottawa,” that was trendy during the post-war period, according to the report. challenging

Tim Tierney, city councillor for the ward, has said the issue is one of the most challenging he has dealt with since being elected in 2010. He told fellow councillors that he received a “barrage” of emails the day before the council vote on 19 Kindle Crt., but in his opinion, addressing those concerns is the whole point of studying the heritage district. Another east-end councillor, Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess, commented last year that moving forward with the designation meant councillors were being “sucked into the sham” going on in the heritage world. The recommendation is based on an original study done by Carleton University masters of Canadian studies students in 2010 under the guidance of Victoria Angel.

From vision to action

“fitness for the family”


s a writer, I’m naturally drawn to exercises that seek to enhance creativity. I’ve tried various one-minute meditations. (They often turn into half-hour naps). I’ve reorganized my work space so I’m standing up or looking out the window (for hours). I’ve called my grandmother to ask her stories about her childhood. (I really should write a book about Granny). In other words, I’m quite good at procrastinating. Recently, however, I was looking less for something to get me over a bout of writer’s block than I was something to get me over a sort of life-encompassing creativity slump. (Let’s call it the February blahs). So I decided to create a vision board. For those who don’t know, a vision board is a postersized collage of images and words one has ripped out of consumer magazines. The idea is to flip through pages of old magazines and tear out anything that instinctively appeals to you. If there’s even a niggling doubt, you leave the page intact. But if your gut says yes, stick it on your poster. According to proponents of vision boards, the exercise is meant to help you better understand the direction in which you’d like to take your life. And of course, it should make you feel more innovative and action-oriented. Admittedly, I had great fun doing this exercise. For one thing, it gave me something to do other than meet an imminent writing deadline. For another, ripping stuff is fun. (Just ask any preschooler). But if the point of enhancing creativity is to trigger one to create something, I’m not sure the board has done its job.



WEEKLY SESSIONS From June 24th to August 30th Monday to Friday 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM

According to my vision,

enough they will happen,

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse I’d like to eat penne salad with feta, live in a log cabin and own a red purse. There’s also a really neat cocktail recipe pinned to the side, but I chalk that up to a recent dry spell on the alcohol front. Although I have this pretty collage up on my office wall, it has failed in its purpose to help me initiate something different in my life.

According to proponents of vision boards, the exercise is meant to help you better understand the direction in which you’d like to take your life See, the thing about vision boards is that they’re kind of fluffy. But without some kind of action plan associated with it, the vision board will exist as a pretty piece of wall art. A blog by Dr. Neil Farber on the Psychology Today website helped me realize what I really need is an action board, something that has a few clearly defined goals with measurable targets along the way. While pop psychology tells us if we think optimistically about things long

Farber says this is tripe. He cites at least one study that suggests the opposite. In the study, a group of students were divided – one group was asked to study for the upcoming standardized tests while imagining a really great outcome. A second group was asked to visualize where and how they would study. The third group was asked to study while at the same time thinking about how they would avoid failing. The second group performed best on the tests. Why? They mapped out what they had to do to achieve their goals – as a result, they studied harder and were ultimately better prepared. If it’s my goal to have my “best body” as the vision board suggests, it’s not enough to paste pictures around the house of skinny and muscular women. I have to map out precisely what I’m going to do to achieve that goal. Perhaps more importantly, I have to include hurdles in that map – things that will get in the way of my goal – and think about ways I will overcome those challenges. I’m not going to throw out the vision board just yet. If nothing else, it’s helped me get a sense of my decorating style. But I have discounted its ability to trigger anything on the creative front, with the exception, perhaps, of this column.

EMC news - “Kids need to know they are not alone. We know we feel sad, but we don’t know we are depressed. Then we try to cover up the crisis in our lives by adding alcohol, drugs, food – you name it.” Those are the words of 18-year-old Alex Kilby, an Ottawa resident and one of the clients of a program spearheaded and funded by the Champlain Local Health Integration Network. The program helps youth who have serious mental-health conditions make the transition from child to adult services. Such a transition can often be difficult, with some youth not knowing how to access adult services, feeling intimidated to do so, experiencing a decline in their condition, and sometimes even ending up in the emergency room. Thanks to this new program, young adults like Kilby are receiving the individualized services they need. Kilby was recently connected to Gilles Charron, co-ordinator of transitional mental health services for youth. As a result, he attends weekly addictions and grief counselling in an adult setting. “I wouldn’t be here today without Gilles, 100 per cent. I wish there were more of him,” Kilby says.

Gilles’ role is to help youth make the transition. He conducts an interview and assessment, and then sends a referral to the most appropriate health provider for adult services. If there is a wait list, the client continues to receive temporary support from child services until adult support is available. There are multiple benefits of the program, Gilles says. For example, youth generally feel empowered in their new “adult” status, and are keen to take responsibility for themselves. In addition, youth often include their parents in their transitional program interviews, leading to strengthened family connections. To date, the program has assisted roughly 140 youth ranging in age from 16 to 24. Kilby says he is doing well and finishing his high-school credits at Algonquin College. He plans to become a music producer. “You have to expand these programs,” he advises the Champlain LHIN. “Kids need more help. And kids: don’t be afraid to ask for help. If I can reach just one person with what I am saying here, I will be happy.” For more information on the program, contact Gilles Charron 613-737-7600, ext 3510 or email

Public School Trustee Orléans-Cumberland Our Students Our Future

Labour Update Many parents are asking questions about the state of extra-curricular activities in our schools. That is completely understandable. All of us know how important extra-curricular activities (sports, clubs and field trips) are to our students. For many, this is their opportunity to connect with peers, staff, and community members outside of the classroom. For some, it is a vital link to the school and the motivating factor that keeps them engaged with learning. Without a doubt, the past five months have been challenging. The strike is over; contracts have been imposed by the province. There is a new Premier and a new Minister of Education. It is time for us to move forward as a school district.

There has been some discussion about what impact, if any, the labour disruption is having on student enrolment. Without a doubt we are sensitive to that concern. Our kindergarten registration process just kicked off on January 28th and it is continuing. While we encourage early registration, we take registrations anytime - including at school startup in September. In the OCDSB, we are fortunate to have excellent staff and as the largest school district in Eastern Ontario, we offer a wide range of high quality programs. All of our schools have some extra-curricular activities in place for students. Our goal is to once again have opportunities for our students to participate in a wide range of extra-curricular activities in all of our schools. Working together--staff and community volunteers - we can make this happen. Our students need and deserve our very best.

Corned beef dish makes for vitamin-packed meal Hearty mix of winter vegetables help make for perfect stay-at-home fare Submitted

Girls on the Run Ottawa announce it has expanded its programming to include an Ottawa South location. Girls in grades 3 to 5 can participate in a 10-week program how to run a five-kilometre race, as well as promote social and mental health.

Girls on the Run Ottawa expands Michelle Nash

EMC news - A program aimed at teaching girls the value of fitness, health and mental well-being has expanded to Ottawa’s south end. Girls on the Run is a charity based in Toronto, but this year the organization expanded its reach to Ottawa with two locations, first in Manor Park in the east end and now a new location in the Hunt Club neighbourhood at the Flavour Factory Dance Studio. The 10-week program consists of teaching participants in grades 3-5 how to run a five kilometre race, as well as tackle

tough issues girls face today at home, in the classroom and in the schoolyard. “We are thrilled to bring the Girls on the Run to Ottawa,” said Rina De Donato, chief executive for the organization. “We are keen to see the program expand across the city.” Aside from learning to run, topics in the curriculum include gossip, bullying, eating disorders, substance abuse and community responsibility. “It’s essential, from a young age, for girls to not only build a strong self-esteem but also understand how they can maintain it as they travel through life,” De Do-

nato said. The goal for the organization is to help raise money to support positive physical, mental, emotional and social skills for girls. The program at the Hunt Club location will run every Sunday starting on April 14 from 1 to 3 p.m. A registration fee of $139 applies to this program, with all proceeds going towards the charity. As it’s the first year for the expansion in Ottawa, girls from the Manor Park program and the Hunt Club one will run in another charity run, Emilie’s Run on June 22.

Vitamin C and Lysine for Heart Health by W. Gifford-Jones M.D. Humans do not make Vitamin C like animals do – we need to supplement this essential vitamin to meet our daily needs. Inadequate amounts of vitamin C mean poor collagen and poor collagen means coronary cells fall apart just as bricks do without good mortar. Lysine is an amino acid that also cannot be made by humans and must be supplemented. Lysine is required for healthy collagen by providing the extra strength to collagen – like the steel girders in concrete. Vitamin C and Lysine work together to build collagen, which strengthens and holds together the coronary cells. Coronary arteries, closest to the heart, receive the greatest pressure and without enough vitamin C the collagen weakens. Now you can buy Vitamin C and Lysine, in the correct combination, in Medi-C Plus™. Mix one flat scoop in water or juice, with breakfast and the evening meal. “For heart health, Medi-C Plus is a lifetime habit.”

Chance to take revenge slips away Condominium Act


merson wasn’t happy. He was grumpy since he got home from school on Friday and Mother announced that Saturday he would be donning an apron. Mother was high on equality of the sexes back in the days when it had yet to become a popular topic, so once a month, the brothers were in the house to do chores and my sister Audrey and I were sent to the barns. I loved the day we were with Father in the cow byre and the stable, even though he did all the heaviest chores himself. Mother thought any child, male or female, wouldn’t amount to a hill of beans unless they knew how to scrub floors, churn butter, put a meal on the table and if need be, bake a batch of bread. She drew the line, however, at teaching the brothers to sew after Emerson, who was allowed to use the old Singer Sewing machine once just to see how it worked sewed the legs closed on Everett’s long underwear. Mother made him sit that night at the kitchen table and pick out every last stitch with a darning needle! So that Saturday, bright and early, my three brothers, Everett, Emerson and Earl, were given their lists – Mother was also high on

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories lists too. On went the long white pinnies. Emerson hated them almost as much as he hated house chores. “If the guys at school ever saw me in one of these, I’d be a goner,” he growled. He glared at me “and don’t you ever, and I mean ever, tell a soul,” he snarled, “or you will pay dearly.” Suddenly, as if someone had lit a candle over my head, I realized this little bit of knowledge might come in handy down the road. I just might be able to use it to my advantage. So began a tug-o-war so to speak. When Emerson aggravated me, which was too often to suit me, I would threaten to tell everyone at Northcote School what Emerson looked like in a long white pinnie. I even went as far as to draw a stick lad, wearing an apron and printed Emerson’s name under it. I kept it in my primer book reader at the ready and made sure Emerson knew it was there.

Emerson’s teasing came to an abrupt halt, I can tell you. I finally had him where I wanted him. I took my sister Audrey into my confidence and even showed her the drawing of the stick lad. At that stage in her life, Audrey was high on religion. She thought what I was doing could be classified as a sin. I mulled over this bit of information and I certainly didn’t want to bring on the wrath of God, but for the life of me I couldn’t understand for a minute why God would care about a scrap of paper with a stick drawing on it which was supposed to be my brother Emerson. Well, the whole idea of using it to expose Emerson at Northcote School wearing a pinnie came to a crashing end not more than a week after I threatened to expose him. It all happened when Three Mile Herman came to school mad as a hatter. Now, Three Mile Herman’s mother and my mother belonged

review underway

EMC news - Training and support for condominium board members. Better informed, more engaged owners. More effective communication and dispute resolution. Minimum standards and qualifications for condominium managers. These are some of the issues stakeholders from Ontario’s booming condominium sector have identified as priorities for an update of the province’s condominium legislation. Canada’s Public Policy Forum shared these and other findings in its report on stage one of a three-phase public engagement exercise that is informing the review of Ontario’s Condominium Act, 1998, the responsibility of the Ministry of Consumer Services. Through the fall of 2012, hundreds of condominium sector stakeholders – owners, developers, property managers, and others – met to talk about what changes they want to see in a modernized Condominium Act. The issues and solutions they identified can be grouped into six categories: governance, dispute resolution, financial management, consumer protection, condominium manager qualifications, and issues outside the act such as property taxes and insurance.

“Stage one of the review process was about providing a safe space for an important conversation,” said Don Lenihan, vice-president of public engagement at the Public Policy Forum. “We were encouraged to see such a remarkable degree of agreement among stakeholders on what the key issues are, and what needs to be done to solve them.” Since current legislation came into effect more than a decade ago, Ontario’s condominium sector has seen dramatic growth. Today, condominiums account for nearly half of all new homes built in the province, and about 1.3 million Ontarians call a condominium their home. Stage two will begin in March, when experts will review the stage one findings and develop options for renewing the act. In stage three, which will begin in the fall of 2013, the options will be reviewed and validated by condominium owners and other stakeholders, after which they will be presented to the government and the condominium sector. The public is invited to comment on the findings report by March 11 at For more information on the review, visit publications.

to the Women’s Institute together and it seems they got to talking about their families. Three Mile Herman said his mother was told by our mother her idea of switching chores between the sons and daughters and it was good training and made perfect sense if they were ever going to amount to a hill of beans. That’s all she needed to hear. Mother had earned great respect in the Northcote area since everyone knew she had come from New York and therefore must be up on all the latest trends and ideas. So before he could say “jackrabbit,” Three Mile Herman was in an apron doing house chores. Unlike Emerson, he didn’t care who knew it. That didn’t mean he liked either the pinnie or doing house chores, but he like to talk and he liked an audience, so soon everyone at the Northcote School knew about our brothers and the boys in Three Mile Herman’s family doing house chores. Well, that took the sting off for Emerson. There was someone else at Northcote School in the same kettle of fish as he as. I had to tear up the picture I drew and kept in my primer book reader, and Emerson was back to making my life miserable.

Red Cross continues to support Haiti

Laura Mueller/Metroland

Hero commended Cumberland resident Rob Lachambre, centre, leapt into water to rescue an unconscious man from a partially submerged Jeep in July of last year while visiting Moose Jaw, Sask. Last week, he was officially honoured as a hero. On behalf of Gov. Gen. David Johnston, Mayor Jim Watson, left, presented Lachambre with the Governor General Certificate of Commendation. Lachambre was visiting family in his hometown of Estevan, Sask. when he and his family saw the truck ahead of them crash and flip into the ditch. Lachambre thanked his family for being calm and collected and dialing 911 while he pulled the man from the Jeep. Orléans Coun. Bob Monette, right, was also on hand for the presentation of the certificate, which is given to people whose actions are deemed notable by the Canadian Decorations Advisory Committee.

EMC news - Three years after a massive earthquake devastated Haiti, the Red Cross continues to help earthquake survivors rebuild and recover. Efforts have shifted from immediate life-saving assistance to long-term recovery to ensure communities can build a stronger and healthier future. “The Canadian Red Cross is committed to sharing expertise and resources with the Haitian Red Cross and providing communities with programming that best fits their needs,” says Conrad Sauvé, secretary general and CEO of the Canadian Red Cross.  “This includes facilitating projects dealing with shelter, health, violence and abuse prevention, and helping to reduce the risk of future disasters.” The Canadian Red Cross has helped improve lives thanks to Canadian donations.  To date, the Canadian Red Cross has: • Provided over 7,500 families with homes that meet or exceed standards for an earthquake zone and over 19,000 families with safe shelter solutions. • Reached more than 300,000 families with cholera prevention information.

• Supported 2,089 families with cash grants for rental accommodations. • Provided “train the trainers” first aid workshops to 90 Haitian Red Cross volunteers. • Treated over 1,500 patients at a cholera treatment centre. • Trained over 420,000 people on how to prevent and mitigate interpersonal violence. Last spring, the Canadian Red Cross was pleased to announce that it has completed its important shelter program, providing over 7,500 families in Jacmel and Leogane with a new home. Work in Haiti will continue for years to come. “Canadians can be very proud that their donations are having a lasting and meaningful impact in the lives of earthquake survivors in Haiti,” adds Sauvé.  The Canadian Red Cross continues to help build stronger, safer communities in Haiti through several projects, including the decongestion of camps in Port-au-Prince for over 2,000 families and an integrated health program.  The $35 million program will include working to rebuild the departmental hospital in Jacmel that was damaged during the earthquake.

Orléans venue packed for Justin Trudeau event Brier Dodge

EMC news - Some Liberal supporters waited over an hour to get a chance to see Liberal MP Justin Trudeau at an Orléans pub on Feb. 11. Trudeau, who is campaigning for leadership of the federal Liberal party, was at Darcy McGee’s on Centrum Boulevard to meet and speak with attendees. The venue quickly filled up, with people waiting in the lobby to get access to the pub. Trevor Padbury, 20, waited over half an hour to get into the section of the pub that Trudeau wasn’t in, and even longer to see the Quebec MP said. “It’s not everyday I get to meet the future prime minister,” Padbury, a Liberal supporter. Padbury said he has also attended campaign events for Ottawa-Orléans Liberal candidate David Bertschi, but felt he doesn’t have the same momentum behind him. When asked about campaigning in a riding where the local candidate was also campaigning for federal leadership, Trudeau said they were both encouraging Liberal votes. “We have nine very strong candidates who are reaching out and drawing people in right

across the country, and every single person each one of us brings in is for the entire Liberal party,” Trudeau said. “David’s been working this riding very hard, and that’s great, I’m glad to be able to work it hard as well and I will keep moving on and he will keep moving on and we will keep bringing together more strength.” Trudeau talked about his main campaign points to those in the audience during the speech, again focusing on the overall Liberal platform. “The point is not to just get rid of Mr. Harper, the point is to replace him with a better government,” he said. He talked about federal reform at length when by a member of the audience, saying he would like to see every Liberal candidate go through an open nomination process before running for election. He added he has proposed that the number of free votes increase to loosen party lines, leaving issues except for party platform and budget open for discussion. The turnout for the Orléans was predominantly Liberal supporters who donned red scarves or stickers to show support for the party. The new leader of the Liberal party will be elected on April 14 in Ottawa.

Ottawa brewery cooks up bacon beer Aporkalypse Now a limited run brew Steph Willems

michelle nash/metroland

Some of the young winners of legion awards they received for their creativity.

Legion celebrates city’s best poems, posters and essays Members urge more students to participate Michelle Nash michelle.nash

EMC news - The Royal Canadian Legion announced the winners of its 2012 Remembrance Day poetry, essay and poster contest during a ceremony at the Eastview branch on Feb. 9. The Vanier legion handed out awards to local students in the black and white poster, coloured poster, essay and poem categories in four age groups: senior, intermediate, junior and primary. According to the members of the executive who reviewed the entries, deciding on the winners was incredibly difficult and in some cases came down to one tenth of a

point. “The judges were all veterans,” said Rick Major, youth committee chairman. “They chose from the heart.” Colonel By Secondary School student Bo Yu Huang accepted three awards, the black and white poster, coloured poster and essay categories. She said she decided to participate because she felt it was important. “I didn’t really understand what Remembrance Day was and why it was important,” Huang said. “My essay was about learning the importance - I learned that it is not just about one person, because some of us may not know someone who was in the war. I wrote that it’s important to remember what our soldiers did for our country.” Shawn Taillon, the Ottawa district youth education officer, said Huang’s attitude is exactly what the legion hopes to foster through its an-

nual contests. He added the legion was pleased to see so many families, teachers and students in attendance at the ceremony. “We appreciate all the support for what we are doing with this contest.”

“It is important to teach the students that Remembrance Day can be more than just the one day on the calendar,” she said. O’Toole added the contest helps promote discussion in the classroom. “The students are learning about who we are as Canadians,” she said. Three of O’Toole’s students were honoured at the ceremony. “When the class found out we had winners everyone was really excited for them,” O’Toole said. “It was wonderful.” All the contest winners will have their work displayed in their schools as well as on the legion’s main website, www. One winning entry from Orléans came from Olivia Lucy Tarr, Emily Carr Middle School, who won second place in the intermediate essay category and second place for the intermediate poem category


Participation from Ottawa students has increased for the contests, but Taillon said the legion would always like to see more and more students take part in the contest and encouraged any eager students to sign up next year. “The winners receive a monetary award too – and that is for you to keep – not for your parents,” he said. Last year, the Eastview district had 1,500 entries and the Ottawa district had 7,255 entries. Patti O’Toole, an elementary teacher from John Paul II Public School attended the ceremony.

EMC news – The Hogsback Brewing Company has become an established player in the Ottawa beer scene since forming in 2010, which might explain the co-owners’ recent adventurousness when it comes to their latest offering. Many beer drinkers have long wished they could mix their favourite food into their favourite brew, but in the case of Hogsback, that wishing turned into reality. Enter Hogsback Aporkalypse Now oatmeal bacon stout, the company’s first limited production seasonal beer, released at a party held at the Heart & Crown on Preston Street last Friday. As far as Hogsback owners Paige Cutland, Jerry Demetriadis, Mark Richardson and Frank Costello are concerned, it’s the only beer like it in Canada. It’s described as the perfect mid-winter beer designed to take away the icy chill, which made it an apt remedy for the blizzard blowing outside the launch on Feb. 8. “It’s an idea we’ve all been toying with for a long time,” said Darren Stevens, spokesman for Hogsback. “Everyone thought it was crazy ... but more and more we said we have to do it.” Introduced to the beer world via a social media campaign and aided by a memorable label reminiscent of a famous scene from the movie that inspired its name, Aporkalpse Now has generated interest from as far afield as Denver, Edmonton and New Brunswick. short run

However, Hogsback intends this to be a limited run beer available only for the next month in Ottawa and Toronto. To make the product, a total of 13 kilograms of bacon (pre-cooked) is fried, has its fat removed, then is suspended in the vat of beer in what

sounds like a giant tea baglike contraption. The bacon that gives the beer its subtle, smoky flavour – and significant bragging rights – was sourced from a husband-and-wife organic pig farm near Douglas, Ont. Gary and Ida MacDonell run Pork of Yore, a free-range farm raising Tamworth and Berkshire pigs, which are relatively rare outside of Britain. The MacDonell’s made the snowy drive from Douglas to attend the launch, bringing with them samples of their smoked garlic pork sausages

Everyone thought it was crazy ... but more and more we said we have to do it Darren Stevens Hogsback Brewing Company

to go with the samples of stout. The pairing, as it turns out, is a near-ideal combination. Gary recalls being approached by the guys from Hogsback and was surprised to learn their intentions. “When we learned more about them we were pretty honoured,” said Gary. “We market about 100 to 120 pigs a year. It’s a very small, outdoor operation.” Asked if he ever thought he’d be consuming his farm’s product in a glass, Gary, holding a pint of the brew, shook his head. “I like it,” he stated, adding they will be serving it along side pulled pork on a bun at this weekend’s WinterBrewed festival on Sparks Street. Anyone wanting to get their taste buds acquainted with the Aporkalypse Now oatmeal bacon stout had better act fast before kegs run dry on the limited supply. The beer is available only at select locations, among them the Preston Heart & Crown.

Dogs, deer don’t mix: Ministry EMC news - The Ministry of Natural Resources reminds dog owners that it is illegal and dangerous to allow dogs to run loose and chase deer during the non-hunting season. It’s very difficult for deer to run in deep snow or on ice and a deer chased by a dog can be injured, become exhausted or die. leashes

Dog owners are urged to keep their dogs leashed or in enclosures to ensure the safety of both dogs and deer. Under the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act, it is illegal to let a dog run at large in an area inhabited by deer, moose, elk or bear during the closed season. The ministry’s conservation officers may charge dog owners and are authorized to destroy dogs found chasing deer. The public can report incidents of dogs chasing deer by calling 1-877-TIPS-MNR (847-7667) toll-free. Read more on living with deer at

looking beyond health care, physicians are treading off their usual path,” said Dr. Reid. “We’re not, really. There is nothing more frustrating than diagnosing a health problem and prescribing treatment for a patient in the knowledge that the cause of the illness will persist. “A multitude of studies over many years, both in Canada and abroad, have proven beyond the shadow of a doubt that the key to a healthy population lies in tackling the social determinants of health. If we really want a healthy population, and how could we not, it’s time for health care professionals, governments and all Canadians to take this research seriously.” In addition to the first town hall meeting, in Winnipeg, town halls will be held in the coming months in Hamilton, Charlottetown, Cal-


EMC news - The Canadian Medical Association has announced the latest phase of its public town hall consultations on health care transformation, this one taking a closer look at the social factors that cause people to suffer poor health in the first place. “When you look at what most often drives poor health, it is factors such as poverty, poor nutrition, substandard housing and lack of education,” said Dr. Anna Reid, CMA president. “With so much pressure

on access to health care, we tend to focus on the supply side and ways to increase services. “Wouldn’t it be more responsible from an economic standpoint, not to mention more compassionate, to tackle the reasons behind the high demand for health care in the first place?” In 2011, the CMA began a national dialogue on health care transformation, an online discussion and series of public town hall meetings across the country looking at how to modernize Canada’s health care system. In this phase of the national dialogue, the CMA is seeking Canadians’ views on how various social factors, or determinants, affect their health and how to mitigate them. The town halls will be broadcast on CPAC. “Some people may think that, in

Ontario sees record number of organ donors in 2012


Keeping the beat Residents follow along during a recent CPR course at 255 Centrum Blvd., presented by the Ottawa paramedics. Also present at the event was paramedic chief Tony DiMonte. The training was sponsored by Coun. Bob Monette.

2012, more than 185,000 people have registered consent to organ and tissue donation. One donor can save up to eight lives and enhance the lives of up to 75 others through the gift of tissue. Visit www. to register or to check your registration status. It is important to note that a signed donor card does not mean you are registered.

EMC news - A recordbreaking 1,053 lifesaving organ transplants were performed in Ontario in 2012, an increase of 11 per cent over the previous year and the third year in a row the province has reported growth in the number of transplants performed. Over 250 deceased organ donors and their families gave the gift of life in 2012, an increase of 15 per cent over the previous year. Despite the increase in donors, lives are still being lost because only 22 per cent of Ontarians have registered their consent to organ and tissue donation. In 2012, 95 people on the transplant wait list died. A total of 196 families, in the absence of registered consent, declined to donate their loved ones’ organs. Had their family member been registered, an estimated 370 additional lifesaving transplants could have been performed. New information available today on the Gift of 8 Movement at www.BeADonor. ca shows that since April 1,


• In 2012, 253 deceased Ontario donors contributed to 385 kidney transplants, 189 liver transplants, 104 lung transplants, 74 heart transplants, 23 kidney pancreas transplants, 20 pancreas transplants and one small bowel transplant. • Since the launch of the Gift of 8 Movement in April 2012, users have created over 630 personal and organizational web profiles on www. to inspire their neighbours, friends and coworkers to register consent for organ and tissue donation.

Baby boomers need to get fit or face sickness, disability: report EMC news - Canadian baby boomers have big aspirations for their golden years, but their current lifestyle choices could keep them from making these dreams a reality. The Heart and Stroke Foundation’s 2013 report on the health of Canadians titled Reality Check warns that without immediate action, baby boomers may spend their last years in sickness, disability and immobility. Although Canadians are living longer, on average, there’s a 10-year gap between how long we live and how long we live in health. This gap is mainly due to heart disease, stroke and other chronic conditions. A new Heart and Stroke Foundation poll found that while almost 80 per cent of Canadian boomers think their doctors would rate them as healthy, their self-reported lifestyle choices show otherwise. A huge majority of boomers reported not eating enough vegetables and fruit (85 per cent), more than 40 per cent are not getting enough physical activity each week, one in five (21 per cent) smoke, and one in 10 (11 per cent) are heavy drinkers. While the large majority of boomers said they feel stressed at least sometimes, almost 30 per cent say they are often or always stressed. REDUCE RISK

Despite these lifestyle habits, more than a quarter of Canadian baby boomers don’t feel concerned about how healthy they will be later

in life. And a shocking three quarters (74 per cent) don’t know that they can reduce their risk of heart disease and stroke by up to 80 per cent with lifestyle modifications. “The lifestyle choices that Canadian boomers are making directly contribute to living the last 10 years of their lives in sickness,” says Heart and Stroke Foundation spokesperson Dr. Beth Abramson. “This should cause boomers a lot of

The good news is that if lifestyle changes are made now, many Canadians can considerably reduce the effects of heart disease and stroke Dr. Beth Abramson

concern. “The good news is that if lifestyle changes are made now, many Canadians can considerably reduce the effects of heart disease and stroke. It is possible for us to take charge of our heart health, reduce hospitalizations and immobility, significantly improving the quality of our lives.” Brian Campkin knows firsthand what it feels like to have a close call. Six years ago, at the age of 46, after feeling terrible shortness of breath on the tennis court, Campkin was diagnosed with blocked arteries and underwent life-saving

triple bypass surgery. “I was stopped in my tracks,” says Campkin. “Literally. I had to face the fact that I wasn’t healthy - and that was a shock, but it really shouldn’t have been. “I didn’t take care of myself and I was a slave to some of life’s common stressors. I put everything else in my life before my health. I actually set myself on a path to sickness.” Since then, Campkin has made it his mission to turn his life around. “I’ve taken control of my health and made a lot of healthy choices like changing my diet, so I can have the quality life I want in the future. I’ve lost 20 pounds and feel better than ever,” Campkin adds.

last, Canadians need to take action – it’s their time to decide if they’ll grow old with vitality, or get old with disease.” Nine in 10 Canadians already have at least one risk factor for heart disease and stroke and nearly four in 10 have three or more risk factors. About 1.3 million Canadians are currently living with the effects of heart disease, and 315,000 are living with the effects of stroke, including increased hospitalization and decreased mobility. In fact, heart disease and stroke is the leading cause of hospitalization in Canada, resulting in 1,000 hospital visits each day.


The Heart and Stroke Foundation is launching Make Health Last to help motivate and support Canadians to live the lives they want in their later years. Tips and tools on how to Make Health Last can be found at makehealthlast. ca. Everything counts, even gardening, housework or dancing with your kids or grandkids, getting off the bus or subway a stop early, taking the stairs. \ The recommended amount is 150 minutes of moderateto-vigorous-intensity physical activity per week, and it can take place in bouts of 10 minutes or more. Moderate intensity activities include brisk walking or bike riding. Vigorous intensity may mean jogging or crosscountry skiing.

Canadian boomers are planning full lives for their later years. The survey showed 61 per cent feel the quality of the time they spend living is more important than the length of time. Half of boomers (54 per cent) want to travel and be active around the house, 38 per cent want to be involved grandparents, 36 per cent want to take up a new hobby and a quarter (27 per cent) would like to winter somewhere warm and sunny. “We typically think teenagers are the ones who live like they’re invincible, but boomers seem to forget their mortality too,” says David Sculthorpe, CEO of the Heart and Stroke Foundation, Canada. “In order to take full advantage of life and make health

Arts, culture boosts Ontario tourism EMC news - The economic impact of arts and culture tourism in Ontario is considerable according to a new analysis released by the Ontario Arts Council. Ontario Arts and Culture Tourism Profile, the report prepared for OAC, provides a comprehensive profile of Ontario’s arts and culture tourists. The report says: • 9.5 million overnight tourists to Ontario participated in arts and culture activities during their trips in 2010 – representing 22 per cent of all Ontario’s overnight visitors. • A high proportion of Ontario’s foreign tourists engage

in arts and cultural activities. • American arts and culture tourists represent 39 per cent of all American overnight visitors to Ontario in 2010. Sixty-three percent of Ontario’s overseas visitors engaged in an arts or culture activity during their trip in 2010. The economic impact of Ontario’s arts and culture tourism is substantial. Arts and culture tourist spending generated: • $3.7 billion in GDP provincewide in 2010. • 67,000 jobs and $2.4 billion in wages. • $1.7 billion in taxes. Arts and culture tourists spend more, and stay longer. The average Ontario arts and

culture tourist spends twice as much per trip as does a typical tourist – $667 per trip versus $374. On average, arts and culture tourists spend 4.4 nights in Ontario – 42 per cent longer than the typical tourist at 3.1 nights. Spending in Ontario by arts and culture tourists totaled $4.1 billion in 2010 – representing 36 per cent of spending by all overnight tourists in the province that year. Many sectors of Ontario’s economy benefit from arts and culture tourist spending. For example, Ontario’s arts and culture tourists spent $1.1 billion on lodging, $1.1 billion on food and beverag-

es, $600 million on retail and $500 million on entertainment and recreation in 2010. Arts and culture tourism is a primary motivator for travel; 44 per cent of North American tourists with Ontario travel experience said that arts and culture was their main reason for traveling for at least one of their trips. Some arts and culture activities are more likely to motivate trips than others. For example, 14 per cent of these North American tourists were motivated to travel by music performances, 11 per cent by theatre, and eight per cent by art festivals.

Furniture tip-overs can be serious Some companies have offered retrofit kits for furniture, including wall anchor straps to prevent tipping. Consumers may wish to contact the manufacturer of furniture to see if such kits are available. What consumers should do: • Always supervise children in the home and teach them not to climb on or hang from furniture. • Choose storage furniture, such as bookcases, cabinets, television stands, and dressers, with a wide and stable base that sits directly on the floor. Models with legs or wheels are more likely to tipover. • Attach furniture to the wall or drywall stud if possible, using the appropriate angle braces, anchors or safety straps. If these items come with the product, follow the manufacturer’s instructions for installation. • Place televisions far back on low stable furniture that is designed to hold the weight and size of the television. Attach the television to the stand, if possible. • Do not place items that may appeal to a child, such as toys, plants and remote controls, on top of a television or tall fur-

niture. • Do not place heavy items on top of elevated surfaces. * Regularly check that furniture, televisions and appliances are stable and secure and that electrical cords are out of children’s reach. • For furniture with drawers, only open one drawer at a time to reduce the chance that it will tip over; completely close all drawers when not in use so they cannot be used as steps by a child; place heavier items in lower drawers; and install locking devices on each drawer if you have young children. For more information, call 613-9572991.


EMC news - Health Canada is reminding parents of the dangers of television, furniture and appliance tip-overs. Each year there are hundreds of incidents in Canada of furniture tipping over onto children under 10. Furniture or television tip-overs can cause serious head and internal injuries, suffocation, and even death. More than 70 per cent of the reported television tip-over incidents in Canada happened to children between one and three years of age. Most incidents reported involved televisions, but Health Canada is also concerned about other pieces of furniture falling onto children, such as dressers and bookcases. Health Canada recommends buying only clothing storage furniture that meets the latest ASTM F2057 International Standard Safety Specification for chests, door chests and dressers. Canadians who have older pieces of furniture can visit their local hardware stores for restraints or anchors. The restraints attach to a wall, framing or other support to help prevent tip-over entrapment hazards to young children.

Make a difference and get in shape


Hockey helps The Cumberland Bandits Jr. C team hosted the Vankleek Hill Cougars at the Ray Friel Centre on Jan. 26. Eric Goneau spoke to thank all attendees for supporting Valérie’s Flutter Foundation. In total $2,203 was raised.

EMC news - We’ve reached that time of year when new years resolutions start to be put on the back burner. But that doesn’t have to be the case. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada’s Team In Training program is the largest and most successful sports training program for a charity. Today participants have raised over $1.2 billion to help cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and ultimately improve the quality of life for patients and their families. This is the kind of motivation that doesn’t dwindle. Natalie Fraser signed up to run her first marathon with TNT in 2012. She had always wanted to run a marathon but never imagined herself capable; until she came across the TNT booth at the race kit pick up in Ottawa last year. Now, less a year later, Fraser has completed a full marathon and raised over $9,000 to help find a cure for blood cancers. “Running has become one of the great, simple joys in my life. It has also allowed me to grow and challenge myself in ways I could’ve never dreamed before. I’ve become healthier and happier,” Fraser said. “I’ve pushed myself, failed,

excelled and kept going in unimaginable ways. I had never exercised in my whole life until about two years ago and I also have asthma but Team In Training got me to run my first full marathon in only about six months, which is quite an accomplishment.” But she’s not stopping there. By 2014, she wants to have run another marathon in her fastest time yet. “I also want to be a fantastic mentor to the four wonderful participants I am mentoring this year. And finally, and most importantly, I want to complete my goal of raising a total of $10,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada.” That is TNT’s main goal. Not only will you be provided with supportive team mentors and coaches, see physical benefits and challenge and empower yourself, but you will be actively playing a role in finding a cure for blood cancers. When times get tough, there is always somewhere to find inspiration. Each season, TNT selects an honoured teammate who supports athletes, sends updates about their treatment, and gives participants motivation to keep going.

Pet Adoptions






Sandy is a spayed female, brown tabby, Domestic Shorthair cat that is 3 years old. She was brought to the shelter as a stray on January 2, 2013 but is now available for adoption. She is looking for a quiet family that will give her time to warm up to them without approaching her too quickly. She needs slow quiet movements when being approached and doesn’t like to be rushed. Once she warms up to you she is a very loving feline companion.

Whistler is a 5 month old, neutered male, Rex mix. He was brought to the shelter as a stray on December 20, 2012 but is now ready for adoption! Whistler is an active rabbit who enjoys daily exercise exploring his cage and would love the opportunity to free roam. He does enjoy chewing on things so keep all cords and important items out of his way! He is looking for a forever home where he will be allowed to exercise daily and will be provided with nutritious food, water, and a clean habitat!

animal tooth paste is the number one way to help prevent bacterial growth in his mouth! Don’t use human toothpaste, as some of the ingredients in our everyday toothpaste are harmful to animals if ingested. Preventative diets: There are specially designed foods that have been developed using scientific research to help stimulate your animal’s gums. These foods promote the breakdown of bacteria that can cause tartar and periodontal diseases. Talk to your veterinarian about which diet is best for your pet. Provide safe chew-toys: Chew-toys not only provide your animal with enjoyment, they help remove plaque, and for puppies, help soothe itchy gums during teething! Provide your pet with dental chews, natural chews, and dental chew toys to help stimulate his gums naturally! Visit the vet: Schedule regular check-ups with your vet! Talk to your vet about preventative dental care and how to decrease the likelihood of your pet needing dental work done down the road. Your pocket book will thank you later!

My name is Chelsea and I am an English Golden Retriever who is almost a year old. I live with my mom, dad, two sisters and two tempting cats! I love my peanut butter kongs and cheese. I like to go on long walks all winter and chew on sticks and other things I am not supposed to eat. My favorite thing is to roll around rubbing my back on the hard snow. I like to see people and other dogs on my walk and I always hope to go into the Expedition Store when I go through the village. They love dogs! My parents think I am the best puppy because I never get into any trouble. Except for when it comes to those cats!!!

Do you pay close attention to your pet’s oral health? Do you brush your animal’s teeth regularly? Biologically, animal mouths are pretty similar to our own. Teeth are susceptible to tartar build-up and bacterial infections, with more serious infections potentially growing and damaging the gums and bones that hold the teeth in place. In some more serious cases, infection can spread through the blood stream to other organs, sometimes resulting in deadly infections in the heart, kidneys and/or liver. Oral care is the most common element of pet health care that is overlooked. Why is oral care for your companion animal so important? Mainly because your pet may not show any obvious signs of dental disease until it is quite advanced, once the disease becomes painful or infected. At this stage, damage has already done and may be extremely costly to resolve. Research has estimated that just over two-thirds of all dogs and cats over 3 years of age have some form of periodontal or dental disease. Here are a few ways you can improve your pet’s oral health: Brush your animal’s teeth: Brushing your animal’s teeth with a specialized
