EMC news - She doesn’t need to close her eyes, click her ruby red heels together three times, and wish. Marie-Pier Jean, 14, had landed the role she always dreamed about getting: Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz. “This is the ultimate role,” she said. “Dorothy’s always been a dream role for me, following in Judy Garland’s footsteps.” The Béatrice-Desloges Catholic high school Grade 9 student will be playing Dorothy in the upcoming production by the Greely Players. And it isn’t her first time on stage – the young actress has been in 10 shows since starting acting at age nine. The francophone actress started with the Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet company when a friend of her father was looking for actors. “I didn’t speak a word of English when I got there,

so it was a crash-course in English,” she said. The now-bilingual actress has been in shows with ASNY, Orpheus Musical Theatre and GOYA Theatre Productions, and will now add the Greely Players to her list. For her role in GOYA’s production of Homechild, she was nominated for best actress in the Capital Critic Circle Awards. At 12, it was the first time a child had been nominated. busy schedule

She also keeps busy with vocal training and competing in the Kiwanis music competitions – she won gold in all her categories last year – so the multiple productions combined with school plays mean a busy schedule for the Jean family. The next step is finding an agent to start looking for television and professional theatre roles, both goals for Marie-Pier. See BROADWAY. page 4

EMC news - At a recent St. Matthew Catholic High School breakfast, students honoured weren’t necessarily the top academics or athletes. Instead, the recognized students were the ones who stood out for a variety of reasons, such as hard work in the classroom or a positive attitude. “A lot of them are unsung heroes in the class. This motivates them to continue on that path,” said resource teacher Chantal Tadiello, who organizes the breakfast along with fellow

school students in grades 9 to 12 as 54 individual students were recognized. Each student received a letter for their parents the week prior to the Feb. 26 breakfast to let them know that their son or daughter was being honoured. “My mom and dad were really proud,” said Grade 10 student Meghan O’Sullivan. “And I feel very proud because it’s nice to get recognized for your hard work, even if you don’t get a 90 per cent grade.” Students were treated to a large breakfast in the school’s gym and given certificates for their accomplishment.

resource teacher Marilu Armstrong. Each teacher in the school was asked to nominate one student who stood out, whether it was for their attitude towards classmates, academic progress or overcoming a challenge. “Sometimes it’s the students who don’t always get recognition,” Armstrong said. The breakfast is a way to fill in the gap between academic and athletic awards, said Tadiello. Principal Silvio Rigucci told students they reflected the school board motto for 2013, which is By Our Works, We Show Our Faith. The event combined junior students in grades 7 and 8 and high

The Feb. 25 open house at the Carlsbad Springs Community Centre drew a packed house of concerned residents, some of whom were escorted out by police for causing a disturbance by waving Dump This Dump signs. “It’s very simple, get the hell out of here!” a resident yelled at TaggartMiller representatives. “You know what the Indians do, they do blockades? That’s what I’ll do.” There were two proposed sites for Taggart-Miller’s proposed Capital Region Resource Recovery Centre, one in Russell Township and another within city limits on Boundary Road. The open house was in response to the recent decision by Taggart-Miller to make Boundary Road the preferred site. “Taggart-Miller and everyone involved need to understand what people are feeling,” said Sue Langlois, president of the opposition group Dump This Dump. “We told the community it’s vitality important that however you feel, you let the people know, so it’s not just a couple of us but the community in general.” Langlois was upset after she wasn’t allowed to use a portable microphone to ask questions of the Taggart-Miller representatives. Police told her she would have to put the microphone and speaker away. “You’re trying to ask him questions…the community would like to understand,” she said. “A couple of us have done some investigation and we had questions we wanted to ask. We just simply wanted to facilitate so that people could hear. Taggart steadfastly refused.” The open house featured information on bulletin boards placed around the room. Slides of the boards are available online at “Positions are being taken before people in effect can look at the information being presented,” said Hubert Bourque, project manager with Taggart-Miller. The Boundary Road site was chosen over the Russell site after several criteria like proximity to highway and geology were considered, he said. Bourque said specific questions about issues like water contamination-

prevention cannot be answered until the detailed environmental assessment is completed. “The water will not be contaminated, but in order to answer that question properly we need to come up with a detailed drilling program that will come up with the detailed characteristics,” Bourque said. “We’re going to come up with a very detailed study. We will then put in all the environmental safeguards.” While the proposed facility aims to eventually recycle 30 to 40 per cent of incoming waste, the exact numbers can’t be finalized. The proposal includes a landfill on site, but with recycling features for diverting waste. The commitment at the moment is to the provincial standard of 12 to 14 per cent waste diversion, lower than the eventual 30 to 40 Taggart-Miller hopes to reach. Taggart-Miller will take in industrial and commercial waste, a sector that isn’t required to sort recyclables from waste like residents are required to at their homes. Bourque said that putting in a successful business model to attract customers and recycle the greatest amount of waste depends on support from the city and province. “Over time we believe that 30 to 40 per cent in an attainable number,” he said. “But what we would hope … is to work with the province and municipalities so that there would be more measures applied to businesses that would obligate them to recycle more.” Langlois said this doesn’t convince residents that Taggart-Miller will make efforts to reach a higher diversion rate. Residents don’t want to see a facility built that could have the same diversion rate as existing landfills. “Our concern is if you have a recycling centre that has a large landfill centre, what is the importance to you to recycle?” Langlois said. “If there was a recycling facility, you’d have a lot less objections.” Geologist Joe Wallach, who lives in Russell and came out to the open house, said his issue is with the Ministry of Environment, and said that a full geological evaluation of the region should be undertaken as a part of the (613) 225-0982

Capital Chordettes hit 50 EMC news - Throughout 2013, the Capital Chordettes are celebrating 50 years of entertaining Ottawa area audiences. The Capital Chordettes are a dynamic, awardwinning chorus of 40 women of all ages and from all walks of life who sing a cappella, four-part harmony. To mark this momentous year, several special events are being held, including a Big Band Dance and Concert on March 9 at the Ron Kolbus Lakeside Centre.

Brier Dodge/Metroland

Marie-Pier Jean, 14, is getting the chance to play her dream role, Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, in an upcoming production by the Greely Players. The Béatrice-Desloges Catholic high school student has already appeared in 10 productions.


Charter member Elaine Dunlop has been singing with the chorus since 1963. At that time she was a young mother at home with her children and looked forward to getting out every Tuesday night. Dunlop continues to enjoy the social interaction with other women and loves to sing with many voices. “I enjoy my part fitting in with all the others,” says Dunlop. There is a strong family connection to the Capital Chordettes for Dunlop. Her husband Jerry Dunlop directed the chorus from 1971 to 1990 and her daughter Carolyn Henderson became the current director in 2007. One of the events marking the 50th anniversary of the Capital Chordettes is a combined big band dance and concert. Guests will enjoy a variety of music from the 1930s to the present with the Capital Chordettes and Standing Room Only, a

The inaugural exhibition in the new Learning Centre will be one that holds a distinct appeal to children. Titled A Piece of Cake, the exhibit invites children and adults alike

to learn exactly what goes into baking a simple apple cake. By focusing on how each ingredient in the cake is created, farmed and processed, visitors will gain knowledge of the food chain and will likely appreciate the existence of their neighbourhood grocery store a little more. Other annual events are scheduled to return, starting next month. The museum kicks off programming with its Barnyard Break, running from March 2 to 17, while Easter at the Farm runs March 29 to April 1. R0011949815

EMC news - Spring is right around the corner - at least according to the calendar – and the Canada Agriculture Museum is looking forward to inviting the public into a new yearround programming space. Until now, the museum, located in the Central Experimental Farm, had to forgo winter activities due to the lack of heated indoor space, but the recent renovation of a heritage building has changed that. The museum’s new Learning Centre is scheduled to open on May 4, and will allow organizers to offer new activities and programs. “Right now the exhibition spaces are closed for winter,” said spokeswoman Kelly Ray. “With this new building we will be offering programming year-round.” The extensive renovation also added modern plumbing and heat, while leaving the exterior appearance relatively unchanged. The original flooring and sturdy wooden beams also remained. “The renovated heritage building … used to be an old

Award program salutes seniors for volunteering Call for nominations open until March 31 Jessica Cunha

EMC news - A local senior care organization is looking to recognize older adults who have volunteered their time this year to charities. Home Instead Senior Care, based in Kanata and serving the Ottawa-area, is sponsoring the 2013 Salute to Senior Service award program, which honours adults 65 years and older who volunteered 15 or more hours a month to a nonprofit. “So many organizations rely on seniors,” said Lesley Sullivan, owner of the Home Instead Senior Care office located in Kanata. “We want to honour them and recognize them.” Older adults are more likely than other age groups to volunteer 170 hours or more annually, according to the 2007 Canada Survey of Giving, Volunteering and Participating. “These volunteers account

for 78 per cent of all volunteer hours annually – yet too often these selfless individuals remain unnoticed,” said Sullivan. People can nominate themselves or others and the submission period is open until March 31, with online voting taking place from April 15 to 30. The winners will be announced in May. “It is a national program; there will be a provincial winner chosen and a national winner chosen as well,” said Sullivan. The provincial winners will be determined by online votes and a panel of judges will select the top national volunteer. Home Instead will host a local event to honour any nominees that come from the Ottawa area. “I’m hoping that we’re going to have the provincial winner,” Sullivan said. Home Instead is working on contacting the many or-

ganizations in the city that rely on volunteers to let them know they can also put forth nominations. Meals on Wheels, one of the non-profits Home Instead contacted, helps provide food to people who are unable to shop for themselves. “Volunteers make it happen at Meals on Wheels; without their contribution, we would never be able to get the food to the clients,” said Baudouin St-Cyr, executive director of the not-for-profit, in an email. “Volunteers deliver the food into the clients’ hands day in, day out, no matter the weather conditions. They provide the nutrition and the caring contact. Without their contribution, Meals on Wheels could not exist.” For more information or to nominate a volunteer, visit or mail a nomination form to Salute to Senior Service, P.O.

Don’t let respect for seniors lapse


early retirement are being told by the federal government that Old Age Security is changing and there are plans to up the retirement age to 67 years. Many can’t afford to retire early, or even at age 65. Last month, BMO reported that Canadians, on average, managed to save about $9,200 in 2012. And the average total savings amongst Canadians is $122,310. Some who worked hard all their lives will be unable to afford to stay in their homes. Others will be forced by failing health into long-term care homes. They must not be forgotten or shortchanged when it comes to federal and provincial dollars for services.

here’s a lot of uncertainty in these fragile economic times. People everywhere are scrambling to make ends meet or formulate plans to secure their financial futures. Back in the 1970s we were sold a fantasy; the dream of a leisure society where one of the biggest challenges faced by municipalities would be offering recreational services for workers enjoying reduced work weeks and seniors lazing comfortably, with time on the hands. A few decades later, we face a far different picture. We have very little to celebrate. Now, workers who carried the hope of


Not quite what it used to be CHARLES GORDON Funny Town


UNEDIN, FL. – Every old-timer I know says that spring training is not what it used to be. What it used to be was a few fans sitting around in the sun, flamingos flying overhead, scouts smoking cigars while they check out The Kid, the players hanging over the fence talking to the fans and handing out autographs. It was a lazy and informal setting and every fan wanted to be part of it. Maybe it was never like that. Maybe the past was never as romantic as we think. But what today’s spring training is like is bound to suffer from the comparison. What it is like now, in Dunedin, Florida, in the unromantically named Florida Auto Exchange Stadium, is a large minor league park in any city, with lineups, parking problems, reserved seats and overpriced coffee. Florida Auto Exchange Stadium, where the Toronto Blue Jays practice, reminds you quite a bit of Lynx Stadium in Ottawa, in the days when there used to be crowds. Florida Auto Exchange Stadium holds fewer people, but it’s a nice small park and the sightlines are about the same. Where the old-time spring training feel still plays out is in the easy-going nature of the fans, so pleased to be watching baseball again, so pleased to be out in the sunshine that that they can barely bring themselves to boo a bad call, so pleased to be out in the sunshine that even

Boston Red Sox fans have a hard time being unpleasant. The minor-league vibe can also be felt in the informality of the stadium itself, where a leather-lunged vendor can proclaim “ice-cold Canadian beer in an American can made in Chinaâ€? and, when announcing last call, urge customers to “take one home, as a souvenir.â€? So some things haven’t changed, but one thing that has -- and it applies to all sport -- is the recent trend among fans to wear full team uniforms. It used to be that if you went to the (sob!) Expos game, you might wear an Expos hat or an Expos t-shirt. You might see the odd guy wearing a uniform shirt with Raines or Dawson on the back, but it was rare because those things cost $75 and being a fan only went so far. It sure is different now. So seriously does the modern fan take his responsibilities that the uniform shirt, or replica jersey as it is known in the store, is seen in the hundreds, even at spring training where things haven’t begun to get serious. They are listed at $119.99 in Canada. And people aren’t wearing some old replica jersey with Jesse Barfield’s name on the back. No, these jerseys, most of them worn by grown men, have the names from the current roster on the back, not only names from the current roster but names of players, like Dickey and Reyes, who arrived in off-season trades and haven’t played a regular season game yet. Of course the wearers of these jerseys, aside from Reyes and Dickey themselves, must surely be Canadians. And you realize how many Canadians there are in this small Florida town when the anthems are played and O Canada is actually sung by a large number of people. Then the Star Spangled Banner is played and what seems to be an equal number of voices is heard. Mercifully, no animosity is detected between the singers of the different songs.

What your kids can teach you about networking Same story, To the editor,

Re: “ Chapel Hill residents fight new townhouses,� Feb. 21. I would offer you and the residents some perspective. Have a look in the archives; it’s an old story. Just a new date and location, with the same ending. Having gone through this process in Cardinal Heights with Minto a few years ago, here’s exactly how it’s going to pan out: 1. Residents will rally at the planning committee meeting, where councillors will side with their constituents. 2. Resident will hail the process as an example of how the consultation process can have effect, figuring that they won the war as opposed to just winning a battle. 3. The developer will appeal to the OMB, where the city planning dept. will be pitted against the city solicitor and the OMB, which is essentially staffed with industry insiders. 4. The developer will easily win at the OMB hearing, and the city (taxpayers) will have wasted money fighting a development plan that they designed, and that the city planning department is following. It may sound sarcastic, but this is how it will play out. Just watch. The only way to change things is to amend the infill rules governing Ottawa, which we the taxpayers would have a direct influence on.



Capital Muse toward people like themselves. This is the easiest way to form associations -- we know that people like us will share the same norms. And if they broadly share our opinions about the world, we won’t have to deal with too much conflict. Sounds great, right? The dark side to this is that if we are naturally inclined to befriend people who look like us, share the same religion and politics and maybe even have common cultural backgrounds, we are not as open to befriending people of other cultures, religions and social

classes. As a result, our opinions and beliefs are quite narrow because we continually look for people who support and affirm our long-held beliefs. Even darker perhaps is that children develop the tendency to discriminate as young as age six. It’s around this time they start to notice differences between themselves and other children. Have you observed that when your little boy was a pre-schooler he invited more girls to his birthday parties or played with whichever kid happened to be at the park, regardless of skin colour,

age or clothing? Yet, if you look at his current group of friends, are they -- and their families -- more like him and his family? Are they the same gender? Do they play the same sports? Do they worship at the same church? Probably. And chances are your own friends belong to that same, homogenous circle, too. It’s commonly known that stretching ourselves through new experiences -- travel, jobs, education -- is the only way to change and grow. It’s the same thing when it comes to people. If, as individuals, we’re interested in learning about new things, constantly evolving our thinking and enriching our lives, it’s primarily through people we meet that we will achieve the most or have the most valuable exchanges of information. But if we want to diversify our network, we have to do

it purposely and consciously. And that’s not easy. It means positioning yourself as an outsider -- a minority, if you will -- in every social encounter. There are, however, a few easy ways to get started. The next time you go to an event that you regularly attend -- say a meeting or a cocktail party -- seek out one person that you’ve never spoken to before. Make a point to have a number of interactions like this each month and watch as your network becomes a mosaic. If you really want to stretch yourself, attend a class or a lecture that you think is completely outside your realm of interest. You may be surprised at who you meet there. More importantly, however, teach your school-aged children to do the same. Let’s make it an open, accepting and innovative one.

ave you ever watched a small child enter a new social situation? Perhaps it’s a playgroup or a local park. Depending on the child, she will likely take a while to play on the perimeter and observe the others, before picking someone to play beside. Eventually, the child will interact with the strangers, finding some point of common interest -- the same yellow shovel, a cute flower on both their dresses. She doesn’t mind if they’re boys or girls, black or white. She doesn’t ask about religion or politics. She just finds something in common and makes a new friend. It’s remarkable, really.

Don’t Let the Bed Bugs Bite

Common ways of contracting bed bugs include: - Staying overnight in bed bug infested accommodations like hotels and shelters - Buying or using infested second-hand furniture - Picking up infested discarded items, such as items that someone has put to the curb for garbage pick-up - Living in a multi-unit housing complex that has a bed bug infestation It is important to take precautions when you are travelling or picking up discarded or used furniture.

Tips to Prevent Bed Bugs While Travelling When travelling, inspect your hotel room for evidence of bed bugs before settling in. Look for live or dead bed bugs, eggs, small black spots (feces), or bed bug skins. • Pull back all bedding at the head of the bed, near the head board, to look for evidence of

bed bugs • Check the underside of the mattress tag • Check the seams of the mattress and the box spring • Examine the back of the head board • Never place luggage on the bed • Examine the luggage stand and place your bag on the stand away from the wall • Do not place your belongings in drawers • Use a flashlight to inspect the closet for evidence of bed bugs before hanging your clothes • Place your shoes in an open area, not under the bed or in the closet • If bed bug evidence is found, report to management and ask for another room When you return home: • Inspect luggage and contents before bringing it into your home • Upon returning to your home, immediately unpack luggage in a location other than the bed room (e.g. bathroom, garage, mud room or foyer) • Launder all clothing with hot water and dry on high heat for at least 30 minutes • A soft bag (e.g. duffel style bag) is an alternative to a hard sided suitcase as it can be placed in the dryer when you get home If you think you may have come in contact with bed bugs during your travels, it is very important to watch and check for signs of bed bugs. Look for signs of bed bugs in the following areas: • Bed frames, head board, mattresses, and box

springs • Chairs and couches • Under area rugs and along the edges of carpets • Behind baseboards

How to address a bed bug infestation: The best way to deal with a bed bug problem is through an integrated pest management approach, which may include: vacuuming, reducing clutter, steam cleaning, sealing cracks and crevices, washing and drying clothes at high temperatures, and the use of a trustworthy professional pest control company.

Put your Best ’Food’ Forward March is Nutrition Month, Ottawa Public Health is focusing on helping you make the best choices by providing you with tips on how to plan, shop for, and cook healthy, delicious meals. At some point, most of us have resolved to eat healthier. Yet, when we get to the grocery store, many of us run into this: • endless aisles of packaged food; • many choices of fresh fruit and vegetables often make for hard decisions; • tempting aromas of the bakery wafts through the store; and • deli counter offers ready-to-eat meals. How does one filter through all of these options to find the best food, for the lowest price, that can be prepared quickly and easily?

Plan Planning meals and writing a grocery list is a great way to save time, money and effort when it comes to prepping meals and shopping for food. Start by planning your main meals for the week. Have you ever made a list of your family’s top ten favourite healthy meals? Having such a list will make meal planning a breeze. Perhaps you’re looking for new recipe ideas? EatRight Ontario’s My Menu Planner will help you create a personalized menu plan, complete with seasonal recipes and a shopping list. Shop When it comes to grocery shopping, reading labels and comparing products is key to making healthy food choices. If ever in doubt (or in a hurry), it’s easy to seek out beautiful colourful food that packs a crunch. If you can, shop for fresh produce whenever possible - you’d be surprised by the extra crunch local vegetables provide! Check out Foodland Ontario to see when your favourite vegetables and fruit are in season. Frozen vegetables and fruits are also a great option and can be just as nutritious as fresh ones, especially in the winter months Another food group that might surprise you with its satisfying crunch - grain products! Let your nose follow that tempting aroma to the bakery where you can find delicious whole grains. Lastly, don’t forget the outer aisles of the grocery store. This is where you will find lower fat 1% or skim milk and lean meats such as skinless chicken and extra-lean ground beef. These items may not be

crunchy, but they are great tasting and good for you! Cook Most of us don’t have the time to cook from scratch anymore. Once you’re home and the groceries are unpacked and to speed up meal preparation, why not try using convenient food items like pre-cut and prewashed vegetables and fruit? To save even more time, try making larger amounts of food and plan to use leftovers for lunches and suppers the next day or throughout the remainder of the week. The extra ground beef could be used in tacos, on pizza or in pasta sauce. Thankfully, cooking from scratch doesn’t have to require lots of work or time in order to be healthy. Experiment to find meal preparation shortcuts that work best for you. Enjoy healthy eating throughout the month of March and beyond. Use these tips to plan, shop and cook your way to delicious, healthy meals for you and your family.

Bed bugs are small insects that usually hide during the day and come out at night to bite human hosts. Adult bed bugs are about the size of an apple seed and, because they hide in small spaces like cracks or crevices, are often very hard to find. As a result, you may have signs of a bed bug problem – bites around your face, neck, upper body, arms and hands that you notice after waking up from a night’s sleep – without having seen a bed bug for weeks. Bed bugs can be a nuisance, but it is important to know that they do not spread disease, nor do they fly or jump.

Wabano gets ready to open doors New cultural gathering space to welcome Vanier community Michelle Nash

EMC news - As the final few tiles of an intricate star blanket design are installed on the floor of the cultural gathering space, work on the new wing of the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health draws to a close. Once completed, the 2,322square-metre expansion will be open for business as Canada’s first national centre of excellence in Aboriginal health. First announced in October 2010, work on the expansion got underway in May 2011. The new space includes the cultural gathering space, which is large enough to accommodate 500 people, new clinics, a maternal wellness centre, youth programming and two social enterprise training centres. As the work nears completion, spokeswoman Carlie Chase said excitement is building at the Wabano Centre. “There were tears the first time I saw it,” Chase said. “I am just now capable of not being emotional. To think this vision is actually coming to fruition is amazing.” Chase proudly showed off the new building as well as some of the

changes taking place to the older, existing building. “There were a lot of big milestones to get to this point where we are moving in and setting up,” Chase said. “But for me, I think the tiles really are the one thing with the most impact. It shows off our culture, but has a contemporary feel.” Designed by Ottawa architect Douglas Cardinal, the new building is situated at the corner of Montreal Road and Bradley Avenue in Vanier, and features the same sandstone exterior used at Cardinal’s other well-know capital region design: the Canadian Museum of Civilization in Gatineau. Once complete, the front of the building will feature glass which is meant to look as though water is circling the building -- and with wall to wall windows, the space offers a unique view of Vanier below. Chase credits the support from the Vanier community for making everything from the beautifully textured bathroom tiles to the large, expansive rooms planned for community use possible. “Really, it’s the community who helped us make this happen,” Chase said. The $14.2-million expansion will offer health and community services. The federal and provincial governments contributed $2.3 million each to the project, while the Wabano Centre needed to raise the remaining $9.6 million. The star blanket tile design, where individual tiles were sold for $200 each, was

part of the fundraising campaign. As a way of thanking the community for rallying to its cause, Wabano will open its doors to Vanier at the end of March for its cultural symposium. The official opening will take place in May, two years from the time shovels first went in the ground. The centre has been serving the community for 12 years and sees 10,000 Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people come through its doors every year. THE NEW CENTRE FEATURES

• A medical clinic • A cultural gathering space able to accommodate 500 people at standing receptions or 125 seated guests • The Legacy of Hope Foundation exhibition, an exhibition showcasing the history and stories of the first peoples of Canada • A rooftop garden, a place where traditional medicines will be planted and grown and to be used as a teaching garden • A sewing centre, women will have the chance to hone their skills or learn some new ones with industrial-strength sewing machines and basic training classes • A catering business, to offer community members the ability to learn employable skills • A maternal wellness centre, aimed at new parents • Mental health and homelessness care

Lenten sacrifice was just between me and God


s far as Father was concerned, Mother had taken this Lent business too far. Giving up meat herself every Friday all year was one thing, but taking it off the menu for everyone during Lent was another kettle of fish altogether. No meal was complete without a good platter of meat on the table, according to Father, and now Lent was here, whatever that meant. Not only did Father think Mother’s idea of everyone giving up meat on Fridays was like asking a farmer to give up chores, but now she was pressing everyone to give up some-

give up something and not tell anyone else what it was. It would be our secret between us and God. Well, my sister Audrey wanted everyone to know she was giving up butter. Audrey loved butter, especially since Mother started adding a few drops of yellow colouring to what came out of the churn -- before that it was as white as the driven snow. She was going through her religious phase and Audrey fell right in with Mother’s orders that we five children think long and hard at what we could give up in the name of Lent. My brother Earl wanted everyone to know he was giving up whittling. Audrey thought it had to be something you ate, so Earl switched to turnips. Emerson, who said he was giving up pie, lasted one meal, so he switched to gum. His chances of getting a package of gum were pretty slim back in the 30s, so that wasn’t much of sacrifice for Emerson. Everett loved dill pickles and he told everyone within earshot he wouldn’t be taking another dill until Mother told him Lent was over. Now, I loved my food. I ate every meal as if it was my last one on earth. I hated head cheese and blood pudding, but this time of year our supply of both had pretty well run out. I had no idea what I could give up that wouldn’t seriously affect my mealtimes. I thought long and hard, but couldn’t come up a thing. I took my problem to my older and much wiser sister Audrey, who was always able to come up with a solution to just about anything that ailed me. She suggested I give up either butterscotch discs or baloney, both of which she knew I loved with a

I asked my sister Audrey if God would mind if I kept my sacrifice to myself. If it would be diluted if I gave something up, and told no one. Audrey said she would think about it. Finally she said: “I see no reason why you have to tell anyone. It’s between you and God.” I said a silent thank your for this bit of information. I decided there and then to give up licorice pipes.

Food safety for ages 5 and under Brighten up your winter EMC news - Health Canada is reminding Canadians of the importance of food safety for children ages five and under. Children ages five and under are at an increased risk for complications from food poisoning (foodborne illness). This is because their immune systems are still developing and they are unable to fight off infection as well as adults can. Young children also produce less of the stomach acid that kills harmful bacteria, which makes it easier for them to get sick. It is estimated that there are approximately 11 million cases of foodborne illnesses in Canada every year. Many of these cases could be prevented by following proper food handling and preparation techniques. While it’s always important for Canadians to follow proper food safety steps, it’s especially important for parents and caregivers to pay close attention to food safety for young children.

To protect them from getting sick, follow these key steps to food safety: Cook: To prevent illness, it is extremely important to cook meat and poultry to a safe internal temperature. Remember, visual cues like colour are not a guarantee that food is safe. Don’t guess! Use a digital food thermometer to check when meat and poultry are safe to eat. Clean: Properly clean anything that comes in contact with the food (your hands, kitchen surfaces and utensils, reusable grocery bags, etc.) and always have your children wash their hands before eating. This will help eliminate bacteria and reduce your family’s risk of getting sick. In addition, fruits and vegetables should be washed under clean running water. Chill: It is extremely important to keep cold food cold and hot food hot so that your food never reaches the temperature “danger zone,” which is between 4 C and 60 C. Defrosting raw meat, poultry and fish should be “That was way to easy!”

done in the refrigerator, in the microwave, or immersed in cold water (replaced every 30 minutes), never at room temperature. Separate: It is important to always separate your raw foods, such as meat and eggs, from ready-to-eat foods, such as cooked meat and vegetables, to avoid cross-contamination. Parents and caregivers should also pay close attention to what they are feeding young children. Some foods are at a higher risk for foodborne bacteria than others. • Make sure to cook hot dogs until they are steaming hot before young children eat them. • Do not serve raw alfalfa or bean sprouts to young children. • Never give your child foods containing raw eggs (e.g. cookie dough, cake batter). • Avoid unpasteurized milk, juice and cider. • Don’t eat raw or undercooked meat, poultry, fish or seafood. “I just clicked and saved 90%”

meals with fresh citrus

EMC lifestyle - It may be cold and bleak outside, but your meals don’t have to be. Preparing meals with a sweet splash of citrus not only adds flavour, but also nutrients that can help energize you during the dreary months. “While many fresh fruits and vegetables are out of season in winter, Florida grapefruit is at its peak,” says registered dietitian Lydia Knorr. “Citrus fruit and juices have tremendous flavour, provide your body with a natural boost in energy and are an excellent source of vitamin C.” As a flavour agent and source of essential nutrients, citrus can bring sunshine to any meal. This recipe incorporates citrus fruit and juice for a Thai chicken and grapefruit noodle salad. Ingredients

• 375 g (12 oz) boneless skinless chicken breasts, thinly sliced • 45 ml (3 tbsp) canola oil, divided • 30 ml (2 tbsp) grapefruit juice • 30 ml (2 tbsp) Thai red curry paste • 15 ml (1 tbsp) grated fresh ginger, divided • 15 ml (1 tbsp) fish sauce • 15 ml (1 tbsp) rice vinegar • 1 ml (1/4 tsp) granulated sugar

Year 1 Issue 2

March 6/7, 2013

To say that General Motors has hit the ground and streets running in 2013 would be a gross understatement. In 2012 this iconic automaker began an aggressive vehicle launch cadence that carries over to the current year. Approximately 70% of GM nameplates will be redesigned or all-new over the course of the 2012-2013 time frame, including the all-new Chevrolet Trax, Buick Encore, the award-winning Cadillac ATS, Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra just to name a few. Last year was one of continued transformation for GM Canada, as

they continued through a multi-year strategic plan to build a profitable and sustainable company. One early indicator of success is their products’ recent residual value improvement. They’re building better vehicles, building value into their pricing and independent third-party experts are acknowledging these efforts. And the crucial indicators show that the plan is working - for example, opinion scores and residual values are increasing, and customers are responding favourably to new products. By focusing on the core elements of their business, GM is building the value of its brands and products. This means offering their customers a full compliment of the best vehicles, the best technology and the best service.

Young families are finding that while crossovers are quickly eclipsing minivans as multipurpose transportation, GM has the largest selection ranging from the valueleader Chevrolet Traverse up to the luxury refinement of the Cadillac SRX. Truck buyers can select from full lines of both Chevrolet and GMC brands with something to fit every budget and job challenge. Sedans and coupes can be a very personal choice for many drivers and GM’s lineup in this category means no one has to be satisfied with the cookie-cutter approach that other carmakers offer. SUV’s are no longer synonymous with gas-guzzling threats to nonurban environments thanks to GM’s commitment to building fuel efficient vehicles that minimize their carbon footprints. And few could argue with the sparkle of the personnel sports vehicle jewels that are embodied in Camaro and Corvette.

Results indicate that GM’s new products are resonating in the marketplace: •

The Buick Verano drove Buick car sales to a year over year increase of 23 per cent in 2012

GM’s small/compact SUV/MPV sales, which include the Chevrolet Orlando and Equinox were up nearly 10 per cent in 2012

Chevrolet small, compact & mini car sales were up 15 per cent in 2012, including the all-new Spark, the Sonic which launched in 2011 and the Cruze, their best-selling passenger car.

Customers can expect even more great products coming this year starting off with the all-new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray which was unveiled to great fanfare at the North American International Auto Show in January and the redesigned 2013 Impala.

GM’s dedication to alternative fuels and advance power-trains are clearly demonstrated in the extended-range electrically powered Volt, as well as the gasoline/electric hybrid Malibu, Escalade, and Silverado 1500. And it’s interesting to note that while many of GM’s competitors feel the need to distance their luxury vehicle line up from their mainstream offerings with completely separate manufacturing and dealership networks, GM proudly integrates Cadillac into their vehicle family knowing this marque can distinguishitself withoutunnecessary infrastructure.

While individual segment sales leadership can vary from time to time (and GM’s brands have domi_ated more than their share of awards’ celebrations), one area in which General Motors has never taken a back seat to anyone is that of providing the widest range of products possible to fit every conceivable individual, family, and commercial need. Entry level vehicles such as Spark, Sonic, and Cruze are proving that young buyers can enter their automotive age without sacrificing quality, safety, or performance.

City offers cash to civic-minded software developers

“fitness for the family”


Laura Mueller


EMC news - Civic-minded software developers can cash in from across the country with the second edition of the App 4Ottawa contest. There is less money available this time around, but a total of $38,000 entirely sponsored by private companies will be available for tech-savvy Canadians who can take the city’s open data and turn it into a useful application for Ottawa residents. The first iteration of the contest in 2010 offered $50,000 in prize money, but it was all funded by the city. Categories this year include: On the Move, Having Fun, Your City and a new category for data analysis and visualization. Developers can draw on the 63 data sets and 121 data files on that provide information on everything from childcare facilities to garbage schedules. While techies stand to win money from the contest, Ottawa residents will see a great benefit in the form of useful

new applications that make their lives easier and help them take advantage of city services, said IT subcommittee chairman, Beacon HillCyrville Coun. Tim Tierney. “It is a platform for citizens and developers to connect and innovate,” he said. wizards

Before IT wizards get to work developing applications for the web and mobile devices, residents can give their two cents in the Idea Jam. Until March 10, residents can submit ideas for the kinds of applications they would find useful at www.apps4ottawa. ca. Developers can refer to that list when deciding what kind of app they will create for the contest. The period for app submissions will run from March 11 to May 12, and a jury of city staff, sponsors and members of the academic community will judge the apps starting May 13, and voting for the People’s Choice award will open during that time. The

winners will be announced at a showcase in June. Gaining a suite of corporate sponsors, including title sponsor Microsoft Canada, is a big deal, Tierney said. The sponsors are providing $3,000 for the top prize in each category, and Microsoft is kicking in an extra $2,000 for the best app built on the Microsoft Windows 8 or its Azure platform. Nik Garkuska, open platforms lead for Microsoft Canada, said innovation and community engagement are key for the company. Open data provides an opportunity for citizens to do something meaningful for their city and Microsoft wanted to be a part of that, he said. “The data just provides this common language that connects the citizens with technology folks,” he said. Partnering with the contest also provides new business opportunities for upstart developers in Ottawa – developers who might use Microsoft products and develop products to be used on Microsoft platforms and devices.

Ottawa to cheer for yellow and black Brier Dodge

EMC sports - A month after head coach Dan Church’s father passed away from cancer, the national women’s hockey team announced they would don yellow and black for their first game of the world championships in Ottawa. The Livestrong jersey celebrates a cancer charity, Livestrong, started by cyclist Lance Armstrong. Agosta said the team was quick to embrace the third jersey, because everyone has been affected by cancer at some point, not just Church. “I think we’re doing something for everybody who has lost somebody whose near and dear to them,” she said. “When we found out about it, we were very excited to hop on board. It’s going to make the atmosophere that much better.” She also said she’s excited to be coming back to Ottawa, which she described as “hockey city” after playing at Scotiabank Place in 2010. She thinks Ottawa will break records again, after setting a women’s hockey game attendance record after 16,347 fans came out to watch Canada play the U.S.A. on Jan. 1, 2010. The women’s world hockey

on April 2, the special third jersey will be worn. “Hockey Canada has changed co-

lours of jerseys before, but they’ve never changed the colour of the logo, so this is a very special time,” said player Meghan Agosta. Agosta, along with teammates Gillian Apps, Jayna Hefford and Tessa Bonhomme were at SportChek at Place d’Orléans Shopping Centre on Feb. 27 to unveil the jerseys. Livestrong Foundation president and CEO Doug Ulman was in Ottawa for the presentation, and highlighted one of the programs that Livestrong funds, called cancer transitions. He said the transition program helps cancer survivors “find the new normal” after they finish treatment. “As a cancer survivor myself, I can tell you the impact these programs have,” Ulman said. Church said that besides losing his father, he had a player at York University diagnosed with cancer just over a week into the season. “She said to me, “Coach, I can’t play this year, I’ve just been diagnosed with cancer.’ She’s a cancer survivor, won her battle,” he said. “The grace and dignity she had during her fight with cancer had … a strong impact on me (and) all the athletes that she played with for many years.”

“The best part of my job is when I succeed at making a significant difference in the life of a child or youth.”

CHILD WELFARE AWARENESS MONTH The Canadian Association of Social Workers celebrates National Social Work Week to recognize social workers contribution to society. The theme this year is: “Restoring Hope: The power of Social Work”. Throughout the month of March, the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa (CASO) is taking this one step further and bringing awareness to all workers associated with child welfare. These individuals play an important role in ensuring children, youth and families of our community are kept safe and secure. They are involved with the planning and delivery of a variety of services, such as: family support services, advocacy, foster care placement, and child protection, to name a few. They seldom get the recognition they deserve, in fact, if things go well, we never hear about it. There are many committed individuals whose efforts have made positive changes in the lives of countless vulnerable children and families.

Thank you for your dedication at making a difference!

Being prepared is key to winter running Janik Shannon

EMC news - For those living in the nation’s capital, running during the winter season can prove to be a dangerous feat. With temperatures dropping down to almost 40-below, it’s no wonder we hear about slips and falls causing grave injuries. Judy Thomson, store manager at the OrlÊans Running Room, says the biggest cause of injury during winter running is people falling on ice. This

With snowfalls such as the ones greeting the arrival of March, it becomes essential for runners to stay aware of winter risks. The layers will start coming off with springlike weather, but hydration, nutrition and other precautions are still key to healthy running. JANIK SHANNON

can lead to twisted ankles, broken wrists or banged up elbows. Although adapting from summer running to winter running seems terrifying to those new to it, it’s a transition that can be made easier with the help of a few accessories and layers. “A lot of people have to look in (their) closet because you might already have something for downhill skiing, skating on the canal or for Winterlude,� said Thomson. The most important apparel needed is a breathable base layer along with a windbreaker jacket, gloves or mitts, a tuque or balaclava, thermal socks and the right shoes. Thomson says that a part of running which people tend to neglect is nutrition and keeping hydrated. Although you might not think of needing water while running during the winter, it’s important to keep yourself hydrated. Nutrition-wise, it’s easy to lose sight of sugar levels, so an easy solution is

to have a Gatorade or similar beverage after your run. For some people, their opinions regarding winter running cannot be changed. “It isn’t that great for your lungs,â€? Alanna Carolyn said of cold-weather runs. “Mine hurt and I coughed for a few days when I ran in the cold. Then I read up on it (and) they say it isn’t very good in really cold weather.â€? Still worried about running outside? There are indoor gyms all over OrlĂŠans that can be used as alternatives. There are also plenty of websites and applications that can be of use when it comes to ďŹ nding running routes and tracking your progress such as Map My Run, Runner’s World, Run Ottawa Club and Run My Route. There’s always the possibility that a fall may happen, but by being careful and properly equipped your chances can deďŹ nitely be lowered.

Red light cameras are cutting collisions: city stats Tyler Costello

“Well, they deďŹ nitely caught me,â€? said Michael Rontiris, whose rearend licence plate was photographed by a red-light camera. Rontiris was photographed at the intersection of Strandherd Drive and Jockvale Road in November 2010. His boss received the ticket in the mail since he was driving a company truck. He is one of 348 drivers ticketed between 2010, the year the camera was installed, and December 2012. Rontiris says he had a full load in the dump truck and the roads were slick. “I wasn’t speeding, my conditions were bad, so I was probably going 60,â€? he said. Strandherd has a speed limit of 80 kilometers an hour. “I thought I was good, I thought I had made it through.â€? The camera that caught Rontiris is one of two located in Barrhaven; the other is installed at the Greenbank Road and Berrigan Drive intersection. Together the cameras have meant ďŹ nes for 985 drivers as of December 2011. The City of Ottawa began using red-light cameras in 2000 as part of a program to reduce the number of collisions and injuries at intersections. “The primary objective of the redlight camera program is to increase safety on the roads in Ottawa by reducing angle collisions and increasing public awareness of the dangers of red-light running,â€? said Stuart

Although Rontiris takes exception to his ticket, since he believes his truck carrying a load of granite and the wet road made it safer to continue rather than to trying to stop, city ofďŹ cials praise the effectiveness of the program. “Using technology like this allows us to increase both compliance and enforcement without needing the human resources sitting in a police car,â€? said Mark Taylor, city councillor for Bay ward. “A tool such as a red-light camera is an inexpensive way of ensuring that motorists respect the rules of the road and helps to prevent accidents,â€? said OrlĂŠans Coun. Bob Monette. His ward has two red light cameras, one installed in 2008 at Charlemange Boulevard and Tenth Line Road and the other in 2010 on Duford Drive and St. Joseph Boulevard. The camera at Charlemange and Tenth Line has been particularly successful, netting 3,984 ďŹ nes in just four years. “This intersection used to be one of the worst in the community and I would see drivers running the red light on a daily basis,â€? said Monette. “Since the installation of the redTYLER COSTELLO light camera, drivers now stop at red All red light cameras are marked with signs such as this one before the lights, making the intersection safer for motorists and pedestrians.â€? intersection.

rear-end and total collisions at intersections with red-light cameras installed at one, three, ďŹ ve and 10 year marks. “All collisions at the red-light camera intersections have been reduced for three of the four duration periods reviewed (three year being the exception). In addition, the primary collision being targeted (rightangle collisions) have also been reduced for all time periods,â€? states the memo. The report also looked at the number of injuries from the same types of collisions and shows an overall reduction in injuries for right-angle collisions and for rear-end collisions in the ďŹ ve and 10 year marks. The memo also addresses the issue of a potential increase in rearend collisions at some intersections. One theory is that drivers may try to avoid a ticket and brake harder to stop, leaving a following driver less time to react. “Any trafďŹ c device has the potential to increase rear end collisions,â€? said Edison. “The red light cameras‌can impact rear-end collisions but studies have shown that angle collisions far outweigh rear-end collisions in terms of the severity of the injuries and property damage,â€? said Edison. The program, which costs about $100,000 per location, handed out a total of 59,790 ďŹ nes as of December 2011. A ticket handed out by the camera comes with a $260 ďŹ ne along with a $5 service fee and $60 victim surcharge.

Farm offers unique approach for adults with disabilities Brier Dodge

EMC news - Mojib Ahmed has been to a number of day support programs, but none have kept him as active as the unique Sow and Grow farm used by the Innovative Community Support Services’ programs. “We call this program the gourmet program because when I came here I saw things I’d never seen,” Ahmed said. “We do baking, sewing; we’re pretty busy. I get a lot more active things to do.” Ahmed, who uses a motorized wheelchair, operates adapted equipment to plant seeds at the farm near Navan, and takes advantage of the adaptable design – like the wheelchair accessible swing. Some of the farm activities, like planting seeds, he’s never been able to do before. “We try and get everyone involved to the level they can,” said said Janyee Champagne, the organization’s executive director. “It can be pretty boring sitting around. We had to think outside the box.” It all came from a bit of a crazy idea, especially from support workers without a real background in agriculture. “It took me two years in convince the board to take the risk,” said Champagne. “If you can vision it, it can happen,” said Leslie Harris, the director of residential and community services. And the Sow and Grow farm, going into it’s fourth

summer, came to be. The organization operates residential homes – one of which is located on the farm property – but the farm’s primary use is by the day program participants who bus there on a regular basis. Once there, they work on a variety of projects, care for the animals and enjoy the outdoor space. Participants in the day program can range from 18-to 75years-old, with a wide range of physical and mental disabilities. They meet up with the two full-time farm team leads – Jeff Moir and Vicky Murphy – a married couple with a farm of their own – who help maintain the Show and Grow farm, work with the participants, and bring their own animals from their farm. Participants are eager to talk about the miniature horses – a clear favourite – the pigs, and laugh about the large goose which they claim Moir isn’t very fond of. In the winter, plants and projects move indoors into the greenhouse. Melissa Seid, 22, comes to the farm at least once a week because she enjoys working outdoors with the plants and the animals. She dove right into the chicken house to pick up one of the roosters, giving his feathers a few strokes to calm the animal down. “They’re used to me because I’ve handled them since they were babies,” Seid said. The big push for the orga-


Melissa Seid, 22, shows off one of the favourite parts of the Innovative Community Support Services’ farm – the animals. She especially enjoys with the miniature horses are at the farm, which is used as a part of the day support program she attends for adults with disabilities.

nization right now is to build a barn to house more animals year-round, and expand to include a therapeutic riding program. THE NUMBERS

While many adults with disabilities get $10,000 to $12,000 a year for support services, the actual cost for an individual to

be in the day support can be up to $26,000, Harris said. Participants like Ahmed and Seid produce goods that can be sold for a profit. Besides funding projects like the greenhouse on the farm, the money raised from the sale of farm-produced goods goes to support the individuals taking part in the program.

It all goes into the fundraising account, which can help support participants after their day program funding runs out. Participants work to farm the vegetables, which go to the kitchens of the organization’s homes. The goal is to eventually sustain all of the homes with farm-grown fruit and vegetables. Participants treat the pro-

gram like a job, with different day support program members creating brochures of the different preserves and crafts for sale, and others working to make the jams and gift kits. “For a lot of them, working on the vocational training builds their self-confidence,” Chantale said. For Christmas, they created a Spread the Joy catalogue and sold the goods at craft shows, and in the ICSS office on Lanthier Drive. “They’re very proud of themselves when they’ve done well,” said Champagne, such as when one company purchased 150 gift baskets for Christmas. They also sell items through Operation Come Home, a program that works with youth. Chantale Sauvé, the day support program manager, said it can help prepare participants for part-time jobs or volunteer positions in the community. “For a lot of them working on the vocational training builds their self-confidence,” Sauvé said. Many of the participants have never had a job before, so a successful sale for the program is a significant accomplishment. The variety of goals mixed with the variety of disabilities mean the program has to be flexible with lots of options. The farm has helped complete well-rounded day programs, especially for individuals who aren’t happy doing indoor activities all day. “We like to be really flexible,” Sauvé said. “This program, it’s not cookie-cutter.”

Diapers needed for food bank drive EMC news - A Beacon Hill North woman is conducting a diaper drive for local food banks for Lent, and she’s looking for donations. Danusha McRae is looking for donations of any new disposable diapers to be given to parents who use local food bank services. Last year, she collected almost 3,000 diapers during the drive. This year, the diapers she collects will be handed out to the Gloucester Emergency Food Cupboard, the Ottawa Community Resource Center and Joseph’s Storehouse Food Bank at the Lifecentre in Blackburn Hamlet. She’s looking for either purchased diapers for donation, or diapers from parents who have any their children have outgrown. “A lot of moms with young children use the resources of the food bank,” McRae said. ‘They’re always in need because you go through them so quickly.” A mother of three, she estimated

a parent can spend about $20 a week per child on diapers, a steep cost on a fixed income. Anyone wishing to donate diapers can coordinate with McRae for a pick-up or drop-off by phoning her at 613-868-8469 or emailing

Emma Jackson/Metroland

Environmentalist David Suzuki addresses a packed house at Centretown United Church on Feb. 26 as part of his ongoing Eco Tour with economist and author Jeff Rubin.

Suzuki, Rubin captivate Centretown audience Emma Jackson

EMC news - Despite a few setbacks before and during the event, environmentalist David Suzuki and former CIBC economist Jeff Rubin captivated their audience at Centretown United Church on Feb. 26. The lecture and book-signing event was hosted by independent bookstore Octopus Books as part of the pair’s Eco Tour across the country. Rubin is promoting his book The End of Growth, which argues that high oil prices will slow the economy while simultaneously reducing greenhouse gas emissions - both good things. Suzuki complemented Rubin’s point with his idea that people, politicians and nations need to stop prioritizing human constructs like the economy and make clean air, water and soil the top priority. “In a city our highest priority becomes our job,” he told the audience. “You need a job to give you money to buy the things you want. The economy is perceived as our highest priority.” He said society created the economy to serve us, and now we live to serve the economy: we are under constant pressure to consume more stuff to keep the economic engine chugging. “Ever since the end of World War Two we’ve been afflicted with a terrible appetite for stuff,” Suzuki added. “We love to shop.” The evening was supposed to be moderated by CBC radio host Robin Bresnahan, but when she fell ill federal Green Party leader Elizabeth May stepped in at the last minute - a pleasant surprise for the many environmentalists in the audience. The two intellectuals, on paper,

may not seem likely tour buddies. Rubin is the former chief economist for CIBC World Markets, where he worked for more than 20 years. Suzuki, a geneticist, is best known for his views on the environment and sustainable ecology. But the pair agree that humans can’t keep living the way they are if they want to survive - and they both agree that a slowing economy is good for us in the long run. end of growth

“When a real economist tells us we’re at the end of growth, I got excited,” Suzuki told the audience, joking that no one listens to environmentalists on such matters. “No one can tell him he doesn’t know what the hell he’s talking about.” Rubin said that while recessions and economic slowdowns “make environmentalists lament” because their cause is inevitably shunted to the back of the line, in reality a slower economy means lighter emissions and less consumption. Despite its success the event had its rocky moments. Minutes before the event was supposed to start, an Octopus Books employee asked the audience to call 911 to remove a Sun News reporting team, who wanted to film the event. May, however, stepped in, shouting “Only Rob Ford calls 911 for media.” She hugged the reporter and cameraman and asked them to return at the end of the event for oneon-one interviews. And minor calamity struck again when just a few minutes into his presentation Rubin tripped and fell off the raised platform that served as their stage. He recovered quickly and the lecture continued smoothly for the rest of the evening. R0011950020-0307

A Microchip only works if you keep it up-to-date Microchips provide a permanent means of pet identification that will not fade or be lost over time. Owner information can be accessed electronically and immediately, to help ensure a quick return of the lost pet. But while a microchip is a non-removable means of pet identification, your information must be up-to-date if you want the microchip to work. If you have moved or changed your phone number, then your lost pet may not be able to return home. If you adopted your pet from the Ottawa Humane Society or have had your pet “chipped” at one of our microchip clinics, you were given the microchip number and information about the microchip provider. Please contact

us at 613-725-3166 ext. 236 if you require assistance updating your microchip. Haven’t got your pet microchipped yet? The next OHS microchip clinic is Sunday, September 23 at the Ottawa Humane Society, 245 West Hunt Club Road. If you would like to find out more or make an appointment, please call 613-725-3166 ext. 221. While tags may be lost from time to time, they are still important as a quick visual means of identifying your pet. More information about microchip clinics and other community services offered by the OHS is available at www.

Please note: The Ottawa Humane Society has many other companion animals available for adoption. Featured animals are adopted quickly! To learn more about adopting an animal from the Ottawa Humane Society please contact us: Website: Email: Telephone: (613) 725-3166 x258

Lola loves to be with people. She is a very outgoing and affectionate dog who would love a family that would keep her in shape by taking her for nice, long, adventurous walks. Lola is a vocal lady, so her perfect fit would be in a single, detached home so she doesn’t get you in trouble with your neighbours. Lola is a smart lady and would like it if her new family would teach her some new tricks, as well as help her perfect her repertoire of basic obedience commands!

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21

SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22

Finding time to get everything done can be challenging, Aries. Fortunately, you have quite a few supporters in your corner who are willing to lend a helping hand. Taurus, difficult decisions take time to mull over. Although you want to properly work through all the scenarios, this week you might not have all the time you need.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21

Gemini, water rolls off of your back quite easily. However, something tugs at you this week and you may have to give it more thought than you’re accustomed to.

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22

Here’s How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

You may need to break out of your routines this week, Scorpio. Even though you thrive when things are organized, you cannot expect everything to go according to plan.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21

There are some happy moments in your immediate future, Sagittarius. This will make any difficult days in your recent past seem well worth it.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22

PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20

Virgo, it’s important to recognize your way is not always the right way. If you absorb what other people are saying, you might have an easier go of things.

Capricorn, now is a good time to get friends or family together for an informal dinner party. Focus your energy on socialization to get away from the daily grind. Aquarius, others appreciate all that you do for them, but sometimes they have to do for themselves to learn valuable lessons. This week is a time to step aside. Pisces, things may seem like they are going to go one way this week, but at the last minute things turn in an entirely different direction.

Libra, keep the lines of communication open with a loved one. There may be messages coming your way, and you should be ready to receive them.

Cancer, with such a hectic schedule, you may be feeling the pressure. It is not unreasonable to take some time for yourself and focus on your relationship with a spouse or significant other. Sometimes you have to make a few mistakes before you get things right, Leo. Don’t let this worry you because you’ll get back on the right path soon enough.

The steaming bowls of stew we enjoy in winter might be comforting, but they’re not exactly the best thing for keeping your heart healthy. Avoid foods that are high in fat, sugar and salt whenever you can. Choose fresh and nutritious foods such as fish, fruits and vegetables, or foods that are high in fibre. Follow the Canada Food Guide’s recommendations.



To meet your dietary needs, consider taking daily supplements with vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. Some of these are specially formulated for heart health.

There are a hundred reasons to quit smoking... Find yours and create an action plan with the help of a health professional. It is estimated that one out of every two smokers will die from causes linked to smoking. So don’t wait! You will add years to your life, and most importantly, your quality of life will be greatly improved, as will that of those around you!

Exercise regularly.



Regular physical activity is the best thing you can do for your health, especially for your heart. Inactivity is bad for your heart. Winter offers plenty of opportunities to go outdoors: skating, skiing, walking in the woods, etc. Find activities that you enjoy and stay active! It is recommended that you exercise 30 to 60 minutes several times a week to keep your heart healthy.

Take your medication regularly. Some medications are more of a hassle to take than others, because we don’t feel their immediate benefits. If you are taking medication to control diabetes, blood pressure or cholesterol, or if a doctor has prescribed a preventive treatment, all medications are important and must be taken regularly. If you think one of your medications is not really necessary, talk to your doctor or pharmacist about it. A good discussion on the matter will help you make an informed decision.
