EMC news - Police are looking for the writer of an anonymous letter received about a murder in Blackburn Hamlet last summer. Levy Kasende was killed during a drive-by shooting at the 2676 Innes Rd. complex in August. Investigators believe the letter writer has important evidence in solving the case. In January, police put out a message asking for help with the case, and released a photo of a 2004 Mazda MPV similar to the one they believe at least two suspects were in at the time of the shooting. The actual vehicle was discovered, burned and destroyed, around Rockdale Road. Police have asked the person who wrote the letter or anyone who may have information on who wrote the letter to contact the major crime unit at 613-236-1222, ext. 5493.

City to write off $1M in unpaid levies Laura Mueller

EMC news - The city plans to write off $1 million of the $10 million it is owed from property owners who had agreed to pay tax levies for local infrastructure improvements. Most of the outstanding charges – 70 per cent – are related to local projects like the Manotick sanitary sewer extensions and an extension to Kanata’s Legget Drive that were constructed over the last four years.

The city can allow property owners to pay for a portion of work that wouldn’t be warranted under city policies, such as extending a water main farther down a street than planned in order to provide service to additional properties. Some of that money likely can’t be recovered because of a loophole: if the property changed hands and the local improvement fee wasn’t registered on the property’s title, the city is pretty much out of luck. The city could take those new own-

ers to court, said Rideau-Rockcliffe Coun. Peter Clark, who sits on the finance and economic development committee, but lawyers advised that the city likely wouldn’t be successful. With that in mind, the finance committee agreed that outstanding local improvement charges should be dismissed if the owner bought the property after the infrastructure construction and if the tax certificate did not list the pending charges. Those property owners will also have to sign an affidavit saying they were not aware of

the pending charges when they bought the property. That would apply to 73 property owners who should be on the hook to pay the city a total of $1.1 million. Council was set to vote for final approval on the matter on April 10. The city has taken steps to ensure this doesn’t happen again. Property tax certificates will be required to have a note listing the local improvement charge. See DEBTS, page 2

Debts may never be recovered Continued from page 1

There are a few reasons why the fees haven’t been collected. Some are administrative and relate to legislative delays and research necessary for launching the committee of revision, while other delays are caused by the length of the construction projects and the staff time required to “triage” the new projects. The committee’s approval was also needed to allow the city to accept a payment for a

water main project on Navan Road that was completed before council passed a bylaw enabling it to impose local improvement charges. The total $17,708 in fees for that project have been paid in full. Unpaid local improvement charges include: • Navan Road water main extension: $14,545 • Kempark sanitary sewer service: $67,438 • Innes Road sanitary sewer extensions: $149,413 • Pagé Road sanitary sewer

extension: $107,489 • Legget Drive extension: $217,102 • Winding Way North water main extension: $45,400 • Manotick sanitary sewer extension (core area): $240,000 • Manotick sanitary sewer extension (Hillside Gardens): $191,480 • Rideau Glen sanitary sewer extension: $32,473 • Eagleson Road noise barrier: $18,182 • Farmers Way water main extension: $21,474

EMC news - Two Gloucester High School sisters marked World Autism Day on April 2 by setting up a booth and sharing their story of living with two autistic brothers. “Sometimes it’s challenging, but other times it’s fun,” said Noor Siddiqi, a Grade 12 student. “But we look on the bright side; we have fun, we always think of the positive.” Together with her sister Sara, a Grade 9 student, the girls set up a booth with infor-

mation and items donated by Autism Ontario. The sisters have two brothers with autism, and have learned a lot about the abilities of many children with autism. “They have a lot of interesting strengths many of them have bright minds and great memorization skills,” Sara said. One of their brothers has an excellent memory for birthdays, and the other a keen interest in animals. “Any animal you don’t know, he’ll know it. It’s the thing he loves,” Sara said.

Last year, the sisters set up a bake sale to support Childen at Risk and Autism Ontario on their street. They decided to do something different to mark World Autism Day by setting up the booth at their school. They said they explained to other students that autism is a neurological disorder, not a mental illness like many may believe. “We wanted to teach them that bringing awareness is important,” Sara said. “To bring more awareness to those affected so they can realize their potential.”

Resource Centre up for $25,000 grant for more youth programs Brier Dodge

brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - The Orléans-Cumberland Community Resource Centre may receive a $25,000 grants through the State Farm Neighbourhood Assist Program. There were 30,000 applications for the program, with the chosen 200 moving forward into the voting round, which ends April 22. If the centre wins one of the grants, the funds would go towards launching new youth programming in Orléans. The resource centre currently isn’t able to offer much programming for youth between 13 and 17 said executive director Luc Ouellette. Programs he would like to offer over the next five years would be able to launch now if the centre is selected as a grant recipient. “We think we know about every grant, but there are always surprises,” Ouellette said. “It would be really good to help us to bridge access now, because youth today will not wait five years.” Right now, most of the focus on programming is for children ages six to 12. Ouellette said programs including anti-bully-

ing and sexuality for the 13 to 17 age group will hopefully be at the centre in three to five years, but winning the grant money would let them launch the programs earlier than planned. “When you think about problems at that age, you get into discussions about drugs, bullying, sexuality,” he said. “Parents are really desperate.” The youth programs at the centre aren’t run by the centre, but through partner agencies such as the Youth Services Bureau and the Carlington Community and Health Services’ Keeping It Cool program, which operate at the centre’s Centrum Boulevard location. The centre’s programming for youth is a combination of one-on-one counselling sessions, workshops for youth, workshops for parents, and in-school presentations through all four school boards in English and French. Ouellette said several Orléans businesses have run fundraisers to help offset operating costs for OCCRC programs, which allows them to run more programming. Even if they don’t win the grant from the online voting contest, staff are working on multiple grant applications to try and launch the youth programs sooner than later, Ouellette said. Community members can vote for the resource centre online up to 10 times a day on Facebook by visiting www.state-assist.com. Voting takes place until April 22.

EMC news – Construction is nearly finished of the François Dupuis recreation Centre, which is expected to open mid to late April. The cedar planks have been placed symmetrically along the building’s ceiling, and the state of the art heated floors – a first for an Ottawa public pool – have been installed. “We’re almost ready to open,” said the facilities manager, Christine Primeau, at the Cardinal Creek Community Association meeting on March 26, showing off a slideshow of photos of the nearcompleted facility. “We want to get going, we want to get people in.” It includes a six-lane, 25 metre long pool and a second leisure pool, which is shallower and warmer than the large one. The facility – which is contained to one level – also includes a fitness room, cardio room, meeting room and multipurpose room for classes like Zumba and yoga. It has several firsts for the city, including heated floors wherever poolgoers walk with bare feet, and Myrtha technology, which are designed to be longer lasting and require less maintenance. “We’re a state of the art building

in terms of mechanical systems,” she said. There is also a 12-person cedar sauna, and family change rooms designed for those with special needs or parents needing to dress children with swimsuits. The pool is located at the corner of Portobello and Brian Coburn boulevards, and is just the first phase in what could be a future expansion, which could include a gymnasium or splash pad, Primeau said. The pool has a 235-person capacity, meaning programs and lane swims can run concurrently. Lane swims will be available almost all of the time the pool is open, starting at 8:30 a.m. Because early morning swims are available at other Orléans pools, the recreation centre won’t be offering any for the time being. The first week the pool is open there will be free sessions of any class that is normally available on a drop-in basis. The phone line will be updated with specific opening dates when details are known at 613-5808080. Information on staff hiring and lessons is also posted online at ottawa. ca/fdrc. Part of this story was not included in last week’s edition. It is running here in it’s entirety.

EMC news - The Great Canadian Theatre Company is adopting a modern take on fundraising as its latest capital building campaign drive kicks off. Launched March 20, the two-month campaign will solicit community donations via crowd-funding site Indiegogo to help eliminate its building fund shortfall. The campaign’s goal is $25,000. GCTC artistic director Eric Coates said using the increasingly popular website would allow them to find new sources of donations. “It’s suddenly becoming the popular way for people to raise money for independent projects,” said Coates. “We can’t constantly go back to

the same pool of donors – we needed to expand it.” When the GCTC moved into the new Irving Greenberg Theatre Centre in 2007, significant cost overruns totalling $1.6 million were incurred, leaving the company struggling to eliminate the unexpected debt. While that debt has since been lowered to $500,000, it still burdens the company’s operations. “It’s hampered our ability to operate in terms of longterm plans,” said Coates, adding the company has to trim its operating budgets to pay down the debt. “Until we get the debt down, the annual operating plans will be compromised. What started out as $1.6 million is down to $500,000, but that’s still way too much to be carrying.”

The Indiegogo campaign – which ends May 19 – aims to make donating easy, and has the ability to reach more people, especially with the help of social media. It is also a good way of soliciting small donations, as contributions can be as little as $1. Increasingly, many Canadian theatre companies are turning to crowd-funding sites to finance elements of their operations. “When you pitch something like this to people, and put a specific number on it, it’s easier to participate,” said Coates, who will be ensuring visitors to the Wellington Street West theatre are made aware of the campaign. The donation site can be found at www.indiegogo. com/gctc.

Orléans woman to walk 1,700 kilometres for brain tumour research AQUATHON

Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - It takes a long time to cover 1,700 kilometres. It’s the driving distance from Ottawa to Nashville, Tenn., or all the way to Sydney, N.S. It’s also the distance of the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage, the route that Orléans’ Cindy Rivard will walk this fall. She’s making the trek to raise funds for the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada, in honour of her mother, Verla, who passed away from a brain tumour four years ago. “Walking that distance, you realize that lots of times, it’s mind over matter,” Rivard said. “I decided it was appropriate because it’s body, soul and mind in play to walk the Camino.” She is also walking in honour of her late friend Debbie St-Cyr, and Gord “Gordo” Smith, an Orléans Running Room colleague who is currently battling a brain tumour. The walk was traditionally done by Christians to Santiago, Spain, where it’s believed the Apostle St. James’ remains are located. Often, walkers will do an 800 km trek, but Rivard is taking on the entire walk, starting in Le-Puy-en-Velay, France, where pilgrims traditionally started their journeys. She will also tack on an extra 100 km at the end to the coast of Spain, where it was

The aquafit instructor will be taking part in the 1,700 kilometre Camino de Santiago walk in the fall to raise money for the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada. traditionally believed to be the end of the world. “Centuries by, your pilgrimage started at your home,” Rivard said. “Since then, it’s just blossomed. There are about 100,000 that do the (800 km) Spanish part every year.” She leaves for France at the end of July, and will start the trek right

away, walking about a half marathon most days for about three months. Some walkers complete the trek faster, walking 40 km a day, but Rivard will take it slower, stopping around 2 or 3 p.m. each day to stay in village hostels. “I want to take time to smell the roses,” she said.

Helping to improve access to education in Latin America, the Caribbean and Canada

She is currently training by leading half-marathon clinics at the Running Room, and will soon add hikes through the Gatineaus to her routine. Rivard hopes through pledges and an upcoming aquathon fundraiser she can raise $5,000 to $6,000 for the brain cancer foundation.

Besides being a Running Room half-marathon leader, Rivard is an aquafit instructor at the Ray Friel Recreation Complex, the Bob McQuarrie Recreation Complex and the Splash Wave Pool. After Rivard told her aquafit participants – some of whom she’s been teaching for 12 years – what she was doing, the group decided to help. Several approached her and said they were going to organize an “aquathon” – an aquafit marathon – on May 3 to raise money to add to her brain tumour foundation donation. The May 3 event will be held at the Splash Wave Pool at 2040 Ogilvie Rd., with classes at 8 a.m., 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. It’s “bring a friend” week at the pool, so anyone attending who isn’t a part of the regularly scheduled classes will be able to make a donation. There isn’t a mandatory donation amount to participate. There will be a total of six classes going on, with instructors teaching both shallow and deep-water aquafit. Out of the water, there will be refreshments set up. Receipts will be available for donations of $15 or more. “I was completely humbled, they’re amazing,” Rivard said. “The support I’ve received from all of the pools and people, and the Running Room, has been amazing. It’s a blessing.”

Orléans News EMC - Thursday, April 11, 2013

brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - The city is looking for residents’ input on what features they would like to see built in the $240,000 development of Royal Ridge Park in Cardinal Creek. The budget is fairly small, when the landscaping that has to be done and the high cost of paving is considered. Royal Ridge is located between Old Montreal Road and Challenge Crescent, next to Antigonish Avenue. Funds were approved in December 2012 to move forward with the park design plans. There are now several options on the table for park features. In community feedback forms, residents have been asked to pick between a saucer-style swing and puddle rink in one area of the park, and between two types of play structures in another.

“We’re debating swing, puddle rink, swing, puddle rink; that’s why we’re asking you,” said Ingrid Coney, a parks planner with the city, at a Cardinal Creek Community Association meeting at the end of March. “We need your input before we can move forward.” Residents at the community meeting were enthusiastic about the idea of a play structure that promoted climbing and sliding, and a puddle rink versus a swing set. Landscape architect Tracy Whalen said the topography of the site gives it an interesting framework, and plans could include a winter sledding hill. It’s a small neighbourhood park, so even if more funds were available, there wouldn’t be space for extra features – such as both the swing and the puddle rink. Whalen also said they were exploring having an artist come and carve pictures into some of the trees for a unique feature in the park.

There won’t be any lights in the park, unless there is a puddle rink installed, in which case there would be one light. Coney said that new parks aren’t built with lights anymore because they have been shown to increase vandalism. All features in the park, including the play structure, will be fully accessible for anyone with mobility issues. After the concept plan is finalized, planners are hopeful that construction will be done by late 2013. Cardinal Creek Community Association president Sean Crossan said the park is a “huge win” for the area, and urged residents to fill out feedback forms for the planners. Feedback forms are available for download at www.cardinalcreek. org. Planner Ingrid Coney can be reached through email at ingrid.coney@ottawa.ca. Feedback and submissions are due by April 16.

Asking a lot of children

S

tudents at a school in Barrhaven will launch a hiring guide for local businesses this week. The Grade 4 students put a lot of work into their product, meeting with more than 30 local business managers to find out what hiring tools they currently use. The kids have since compiled a hiring guide, which will soon be for sale, with proceeds to Big Brothers, Big Sisters. The goal was to develop something that would help people in the community and the hiring guide could help connect job-seekers with prospective employers. The project was developed with help from the Learning Partnership, a national non-profit organization that promotes the public education system in Canada. The organization is participating in similar projects at 240 schools. By working on the guide, students got a taste of teamwork and the value of all the steps in the business process, say organizers. Encouraging entrepreneurial spirit in youngsters is a good idea, but it’s also reasonable to ask if maybe we’re expecting our kids to grow up a little

too soon. There will be time to learn marketing and project management in high school or at college or university, all before those skills can ever be honed in the real world. Grade 4 is too early for students to choose a future educational goal or career. It’s not clear what skills a nine or 10-year-old might develop today that will be of value when they enter the workforce. Sampling many careers might be a better use of the kids’ time than carrying out one intensive project. Parents of any kids involved in the Learning Partnership programs should share their thoughts with teachers, principals and school board trustees. It would be interesting to know if the parents think their kids’ time was well spent, especially if there was follow-up years later to see if a Grade 4 student went on to bigger things and was inspired or prepared in part by the Learning Partnership program. Without that information over the long term, it’s impossible to say if learning business skills at a young age is the right course or if kids should just be kids for a little longer.

Fixing Queen Street, and other Ottawa fantasies

I

n Ottawa, even the good news is somewhat mysterious. Take, for example, the word that the city is looking for submissions from engineering consultants on ways to improve Queen Street, so that it will be nice to walk along in a few years when light rail is running underneath it. The mysterious part: how could anyone think that Queen Street can be improved in any way other than blowing it up and starting over again? The Citizen article on the Queen Street study contained the usual allusions to planting more trees and widening sidewalks and adding benches, but hey. There’s no retail on Queen Street, hardly a restaurant and lots of ugly glass buildings. You think wider sidewalks is going to help much? Two years ago, on a Saturday afternoon in April, Tyler BrĂťlĂŠ, the former Ottawan turned London magazine tycoon, was wandering around downtown. Here’s his description, in the Financial Times, of what he saw: “The street was littered with soggy bits of rubbish; some shops were out of business; almost every office tower had a lease sign in the lobby window and it was eerily deserted. I walked a few blocks hoping the urban landscape would improve but the few retail

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town outlets that were open felt tatty and tired, the streets were buckling and full of potholes and every other block was punctuated by a vacant property, an empty parking lot and restaurant closed for business, permanently.â€? Not a bad description and it obviously made an impression, because BrĂťlĂŠ was invited back to Ottawa, where he spent two years in the ‘80s going to Nepean High School, to give a public talk as part of an ideas project to improve the city. For reasons understandable to those who deal with famous people, the deal fell through and the organizers are now looking for another expert. “The vision of bringing someone to give us some advice is still on the table,â€? Coun. Mathieu Fleury told the Citizen. “We want to bring someone with that kind of Published weekly by:

profile.� As the old saying goes, an expert is someone from out of town. Too many cities get their reputation from the guy who spends two days there and writes an analysis based on the airport, the personality of the taxi driver who brings him from the airport, the hotel, two restaurants near the hotel, the street the hotel is on and the taxi driver who takes him back to the airport. A guy who walked around the Glebe or the Market, rather than Queen Street, would have a different assessment of Ottawa. A guy who stayed in Ottawa South or Kanata would think differently from a guy who stayed at the Westin. Which is not to say that Queen Street is not awful. It is. It’s just that we don’t need to pay someone to tell us that. Many of the problems that plague our city are obvious to anyone who lives here and don’t require expert advice. If you want a vibrant Queen Street, put some stores on it. For those stores to thrive they need customers, people who live downtown. That means apartment buildings instead of office buildings. People have known this for decades, people who are not from out of town.

Persuading business and government to do anything about it is, and always has been, the problem. It costs money. As time passes without anything being done people learn to live without downtown. They have their neighbourhood stores and restaurants, if they are lucky enough to have that kind of neighbourhood. If not, they have the nearest mall, where there are stores and the parking is free and easy to find. If Queen Street is awful, it ceases to matter to a lot of folks. And that makes it harder to find the will to fix it. Maybe this time will be different.

How to shed 50 pounds per year

I

BRYNNA LESLIE

not as efficient as running, so you have to do more of it. But 60 minutes of brisk walking per day should help me burn about 200 calories. Strap a 20-pound baby to my front and maybe I’ll get an extra 35 calories out of the deal. Doing the math, the dietary changes plus the exercise

equates to subtracting about 5,900 calories per week. I could lose 50 pounds per year! Not too shabby, huh? Of course, once the wine and coffee are out of my system, I may have to consider giving up bread and butter ... and maybe cheese, or taking up Zumba. But that’s another topic.

Capital Muse means it’s not just a matter of what you eat, but also what you do. Saying that, I definitely think the first few pounds can be shed by eliminating a couple of staple foods from my diet: coffee and wine. I realized I can cut about 600 calories, on average, per day, just by giving up the tall boys I drink each morning for creative inspiration. I don’t like black coffee – I’m more of a double-double kind of gal. I worked it out that I’m taking in about 500 calories per day between the sugar and cream in my coffee. Easy fix. The second one is a little harder – wine. I have spent this long winter pretending to be an amateur connoisseur of red wine. Unfortunately, alcohol has effect of slowing your metabolism until it clears your system. How sad is that? And there are three other distinct

problems with my winter posing as a sommelier: there is a fine line between connoisseur and alcoholic; a glass of red wine contains about 85 calories (and that’s a small glass – ahem); and the fact that I really know very little about wine was discovered when I failed to pronounce Syrah at a recent meeting of the minds and that I had no idea that Shiraz and Syrah were the same thing. So besides the calorie deficit of, on average, up to 150 per day, losing wine will help me regain my reputation as an intelligent dinner guest. At the end of the day, losing weight will come down to the amount of exercise I can squeeze in between my hours of writing. Despite all my blather earlier this year, I’ve decided to forgo trendy exercises and take up walking. It sounds crazy, right? How many pounds can you shed

R0012022426

’ve written a lot about the overweight and obesity epidemic that’s plaguing us. But I’ll admit, even as I touted the importance of engaging with nature, getting more daily exercise, and eating a healthy diet, I was tipping my own scale. By two pounds, I am now officially overweight – again. While post-baby fat and lack of a good night’s sleep has made me somewhat selfforgiving, I’ve decided to put my money where my mouth is (although maybe putting things in my mouth isn’t really the answer). But here it is: I have vowed to lose 20 pounds by autumn. The problem is gaining weight is much easier than losing it. Assuming all calories are created equal – which they’re not – one pound of body fat is equivalent to approximately 3,500 calories. To put it in perspective, if you ate a Quiznos brownie every day, you’d gain a pound a week. If you have been eating Quiznos brownies every day at and you stop, you may lose a pound. Sounds easy, right? Not exactly. The thing is you have to maintain your calorie deficit over time, which

by putting one foot in front of the other? But I’ve had a lot of success with walking in the past. For one, it’s totally manageable. The biggest hurdle, really, is getting my shoes on and getting out without making excuses. When I do get out, I tend to walk really fast – almost at a jogging pace. It’s

Celebrating Volunteers

Volunteers are an integral part of the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa’s (CASO) work, generously donating approximately 30,000 hours of their time each year. Volunteer tasks are varied and flexible, matching interests and skills with volunteer positions and working with people’s busy schedules. While some of CASO’s volunteer opportunities require a moderate time commitment, Special Assignments allow for more flexibility. Special Assignment include: organizing, knitting and crafts, providing entertainment, or acting as photographers at events. Volunteer Drivers support the children and youth in care by providing a safe nonjudgmental space where they can comfortably sit in silence or speak with an attentive listener. Child Access Volunteers similarly help to provide a safe space by supervising visits between parents and children. Pre-School Volunteers and Tutor/Mentors provide more formalized guidance. PreSchool Volunteers assist professional staff, guiding children from three months to five years through a variety of weekly programs. Tutors/Mentors, under the supervision of the case worker, help school-aged children with subjects like Math, English and Science, encouraging students to develop their interests and build educational goals. Volunteering with CASO is a learning opportunity for the volunteers themselves as they undergo training, work collaboratively with fellow volunteer and staff and develop relationships with foster parents and the families we serve. The scope of our volunteers’ work is extensive. And their commitment and generosity to the community is humbling. Here at CASO, we recognize the importance of our volunteers every day. They are the building blocks upon which our foundation, and in fact, our community, rests. April 21 to 27, 2013 is National Volunteer Week, an opportunity for us to take stock of the time that volunteers across the country donate daily. We would like to take this opportunity to formally thank our volunteers for their tireless work. We want to celebrate their generosity and commitment. Their contribution to supporting children and youth in care, and the Ottawa community more broadly, makes a difference every day and every hour.

We Day inspires students to make global changes Eddie Rwema

Eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC news – Hillcrest High School students received a taste of what to expect when 4,000 students from across Canada descend on the National Capital Region to attend this year’s first National We Day event at Gatineau’s Robert Guertin Arena on April 29. Free the Children Founder Craig Kielburger was at Hillcrest on April 3 to announce the official lineup for National We Day, which includes actor and activist Martin Sheen, Assembly of First Nations national chief Shawn Atleo, Canadian rapper Kardinal Offishall, singer and songwriter My Name is Kay and Canadian pop-rock band Neverest among others. The We Day celebration is free to attend but students must earn their way in by committing one local and one global service action. That is exactly what Hillcrest students Caitlin Salvino,

17, and Rebecca Wong, 16 did to earn tickets that allowed them to attend the 2011 We Day event in Toronto. “The thing that shocked me the most about We Day was the fact that in the Air Canada Centre, there were 18,000 justas-inspired youths ready to go

back home and make this world a better place,” said Salvino. The two girls are part of the school’s Impact Club that has spent the past two years raising money towards building a school in Ecuador through Free the Children’s Adopt-A-

Village program. “After We Day, on the bus ride back to Ottawa, all I remember is that everyone was passionately talking about the fundraisers they were going to do when we got home and how they were going to bring back what they learned at We Day into their schools, clubs and classrooms,” said Salvino. We Day is an initiative of Free the Children, that connects renowned speakers and performers with thousands of elementary and high school students and educators in an inspirational setting to learn about some of the pressing local and global issues. Wong and Salvino with eight other students are hoping to raise $8,500 to reach their goal of building a school in Ecuador. “We’ve been able to raise awareness in our school about the issues faced by millions of children around the world,” said Wong.

Students proud to be part of movement: teacher Continued from page 10

Donna Frame, one of the teachers supervising the project, said the We Day line-up launch at Hillcrest is a testament to the great things Hillcrest students are doing. “This is an incredible chance to celebrate all of the work, which Hillcrest has done in terms of getting the students engaged around social justice and environmental issues,” said Frame. “This is a great day to spread the enthusiasm and the passion for the upcoming We Day.” She said for the past five years, the school community has worked hard to make the school a positive place where students can see themselves represented. “There is a strong sense of pride about the idea that this is spreading and for the students feeling that they are part of this growing movement,” said Frame. We hope the We Day in Ottawa will bring that passion and enthusiasm to more schools, clubs, and make them feel like positive contributors to the community.” Her comments were echoed by the school trustee Bronwyn Funiciello, who said that the leadership demonstrated by Hillcrest students through their activities in the local and global community has been amazing. “For me it gives me some really sense of comfort that our future is in good hands,” said Funiciello.

The event will take place on April 29 at Gatineau’s Robert Guertin Arena. the question we hear is…I am only one person, what difference can I make?” said Kielburger. “When you walk into a stadium at the end of this month with 4,000 other students who have earned their way to be there … you know you’re not alone.” Keilburger, 30, so far the youngest recipient of the Order of Canada and

the author of nine books, said students across Canada have volunteered 5.1 million hours.

“The most amazing stat about We Day is our alumni. Seventy-nine per cent vote year after year in federal

elections. It shows youth are inspired when they’re given issues to care about,’ he said. Thirty four schools from in the Ottawa area participated in Free the Children’s We Scare Hunger campaign last year, collecting food for local food banks. The full lineup includes: • Martin Sheen – Emmy and Golden Globe-winning actor and activist • Chief Shawn Atleo - national chief of the Assembly of First Nations • Kardinal Offishall - Canadian rapper and record producer • Karl Wolf - international recording artist, Socan & MTV Europe Music Award winner • Shawn Desman - Platinum-selling, JUNO and MMVA Award-winning recording artist • Cast members from the television show Degrassi • My Name is Kay - Canadian singer and songwriter • A performance by ONE DROP, a Cirque du Soleil Founder’s initiative • Frank O’Dea - Second Cup founder, Canadian entrepreneur, humanitarian and author • Neverest - Canadian pop-rock band • Jillian Vanstone - principal dancer at the National Ballet of Canada • Rob Stewart - award winning filmmaker of Sharkwater and Revolution • Tyler Shaw - 2012 Coca-Cola MuchMusic Video Award winner • Molly Burke - Visually impaired Me to We motivational speaker • Spencer West - Me to We motivational speaker and Free The Children ambassador

Tormentor’s prank helped build character, Mother says Fateful walk home from school cements Marguirite’s spoiled-child reputation

I

t wasn’t only that Marguirite was an only child and spoiled beyond belief, but she had a way about her that riled everyone at Northcote School. Often I couldn’t pin down exactly what it was I didn’t like about the young girl. But there were times it was all too obvious that Marguirite felt about me, exactly as I felt about her. Take the day she decided to walk home from school the long way. She could have just hopped down the road to her house about a kilometre away, had she chosen. But that day she decided she would go around the concession and walk to the Northcote side road with my little friend Joyce and me. We could have easily done without her company. There were things we wanted to talk about – the new boy in senior fourth for instance – that we wouldn’t dare say a word about in

front of Marguirite because we might as well write it on the blackboard for the whole school to see. Marguirite couldn’t keep a thing to herself. It was a day I will not soon forget. I can even remember what I had on that day, which had a lot to do with why I remember the details so well. flour bags

Mother had made me a blouse out of bleached flour bag material. To take away the look that it once held flour, Mother had dyed it a bright green with Ritz dye. That day I had on this freshly dyed blouse over a white skirt which had come in a hand-me-down box from my aunt in St. Catharines. Mother thought it was far too early in the season for a white skirt, but I prevailed on her saying Marguirite had been in white for days. Well, that day, as we

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories headed out after school, Joyce and I tried to ignore Marguirite as we walked along the Northcote side road. The ditches were full of water from the heavy rains we had that spring and occasionally we would stop and kick small stones into the water or coax a frog off the gravel. Marguirite said she had better things to do with her time than talk to frogs and toss stones into a ditch – Joyce suggested she hurry on ahead of us and do whatever that was. My friend and I had on black brogue shoes – Marguirite’s were patent leather and they soon were covered with sand and dust. We pointed this fact out to her, saying we bet her mother would sure be mad when she got home and saw the mess of her good

school footwear. Marguirite assured us her mother never got mad at her. Joyce rolled her eyes skyward. We didn’t believe her for a minute. I couldn’t wait to get to the end of the side road so that this pest would leave us and head off in the direction that would take her on to her house. What if Marguirite decided to walk down past Briscoe’s General Store? That would mean she would be with us almost all the way home. The thought just about gave me a sick stomach. late for supper

Joyce suggested to Marguirite that she would be late for supper if she walked with us much farther. That didn’t matter to her, she assured us. Her mother would keep

supper warm for her. It was sure different in our house. We better be there when it was time to sit down at the kitchen table or we didn’t eat. She was really getting on my nerves. I decided the best thing to do so that I could endure the walk to the crossroad was to pretend she wasn’t there. I squatted down on my haunches at the edge of the road, peering into the deep dark green water of the ditch. I told Joyce I could see tadpoles, which of course I couldn’t. Joyce squatted too. We squinted into the water pretending to be deeply engrossed in what was in the water-filled ditches. Well, right out of the blue, Marguirite’s foot hit the middle of my back and within seconds she connected with Joyce sending us both sprawling. We went headlong into the water. It wasn’t deep, but we came up spluttering and rubbing our eyes. All we could see of Marguirite was those spindly legs bolting down the Northcote side road. Joyce was out of the ditch first. She held her hand down towards me and

helped me onto the side of the road. I could see Joyce staring at me. I followed the direction of her eyes. Great streams of green dye were running from the home made blouse, into the white handme-down skirt! I was starting to look like a patchwork quilt. I looked down the road to see if I could catch up to Marguirite. She was just a dot on the Northcote side road. There was nothing to do but head for home. By the time I hit the kitchen door, my clothes were dry and the green water mixed with weeds from the ditch and mud from the road, were caked to my legs. Only then did I burst into tears. Mother stripped my clothes and even though it wasn’t yet Saturday night, I was given a bath in the copper tub before supper. All the time I lamented about the girl I hated with a passion, but once again Mother called my ordeal character building. I told Mother, after my ordeal with Marguirite, I thought I had had just about all the character building I could stand in one lifetime.

L

Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and mushrooms. Cook and stir for three to four minutes or until lightly browned. Add the carrot, zucchini, taco seasoning mix and water, cook and stir to mix well. Lower heat to medium, then cover and cook about four minutes or until vegetables are tender.

EMC news – Ottawa police’s guns and gangs unit spent the long Easter weekend finishing a six-month investigation that lead to six arrests and the seizure of $700,000 of cocaine. Oxycodone pills, marijuana and weapons were also confiscated. Seizures were made from three residences in Ottawa involved in the drug trafficking “business operations� said Sgt. Ken Bryden, who supervised the raids. The homes are in Kanata, Barrhaven and on Prince of Wales Drive. Six individuals were charged, including a 29-year-old from Ottawa who went by the street name Apache – leading to the title Project Apache. Three 21-year-old men, a 20-yearold man from Ottawa and a 27-yearold man from Gatineau were also charged. The charges include participation in a criminal organization, the first time for Ottawa guns and gangs arrests. “This is the first time we’ve seen that with street gang members here in our city,� said Staff Sgt.

Brier Dodge/Metroland

Police display cocaine, guns and ammunition seized as a part of a six-month long investigation and four days of raids over the Easter weekend during an April 2 media conference. Bryden said that there has been an increase in cocaine trafficking in the city over the past few years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supply and demand. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the nature of that business now,â&#x20AC;? Bryden said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that has progressed over the years. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certainly a trend that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen.â&#x20AC;? The scope of the raids ranged from Kanata to OrlĂŠans and included work with Gatineau and Toronto police. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had officers from the west end, we had officers from the east end, we had neighbourhood officers from central,â&#x20AC;? Sgt. Bryden said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s city wide.â&#x20AC;? It led to an intense four days over Easter, with the raids condensed over two days at the three residences for the 10-person team involved in the project. None of the arrested lived in the homes that were raided. The accused often travelled back and forth to Toronto, but were all Ottawa-based. While Patterson was hesitant to elaborate on gang connections related to the bust until the case is in front of the courts, he did say the Crip gang believed to be was involved. Police have stopped referring to the Crips as the Ledbury Banff Crips, but they have long been reported as group based in south-east Ottawa. The people arrested were not the drug dealers seen â&#x20AC;&#x153;doing hand-tohand transactionsâ&#x20AC;? Bryden said, but the ones higher up in the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chain of command, trafficking large amounts to smaller-quantity dealers. Police suspect much of the powder cocaine seized would have been turned into crack cocaine and sold to crack addicts. The project originally started as a firearms investigation, said Staff Sgt. Patterson. The firearms seized â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a .45-calibre Llama Max handgun and Browning 9-mm handgun â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are being sent to the Ontario Centre for Forensic Sciences in Toronto to undergo ballistic testing to see if they match evidence for any unsolved crimes. There are still ongoing charges and arrests expected to be made as a result of the project.

Orléans News EMC - Thursday, April 11, 2013

EMC News –Members of the Ottawa community came together on the steps of Parliament Hill on March 27 in advance of the first official World Autism Awareness Day. In front of those speaking at the event was “The Faces of Autism” banner, which featured 88 faces of individuals from across Canada who suffer from autism. The words one in 88 were written at the bottom of the banner, referring to the number of children diagnosed with autism. “That’s a statistic that should really get our attention,” said Suzanne Jacobson, founder of QuickStart, a charity that offers free services to parents who have children with autism. “The number of people being diagnosed with autism is growing tremendously.” Jaden Lake, 17, is one of those children diagnosed with autism. His father, EdmontonMill Woods-Beaumont MP Mike Lake, brought Jaden up with him to microphone as he spoke to the crowd of about 100. Lake spoke about how his son studies in a Grade 11 class, volunteers at an Edmonton library and participates in musical theatre. “One of the real blessings of my time here is really how colleagues from all parties have come together in support of Jaden,” said Lake.

Tom Beveridge, left, and Robert Garrow from the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa, hold up a sign for World Autism Awareness Day on the steps of Parliament Hill on March 27. “Politicians from all parties care about this issue and come together around this issue.” Bill S-206 or the World Autism Awareness Day Act, introduced by Liberal Senator Jim Munson and unanimously passed by all parties, made April 2 the official day for Canada to recognize autism. “The more people that are aware, the better,” said Scott Wilson, who attended with his son Cameron, who was diagnosed with autism three weeks ago. Wilson brought his son to Emerging Minds, a private treatment centre for children, to be checked for autism after growing impatient with the waitlist at CHEO. Having a similar experi-

ence with her grandson is what led Jacobson to found QuickStart. “We have come to recognize that the current system isn’t necessarily the best system and that we need to work together to be able to serve more kids and be able to reach more people,” said Alex Munter, CEO of CHEO, as he spoke to those gathered. Munter, who has been with CHEO for 18 months, praised the provincial and federal government for funding autism research. “Officially we start moving forward,” said Jacobson, referring to World Autism Awareness Day being recognized by Canadian law. “I believe momentum will increase.”

City sets rules for partnerships Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Secrecy shouldn’t be part of the deal when it comes to partnerships between the city and private companies, a community representative told the city’s de facto executive committee last week. The city formalized its policy for public-private partnerships – or P3s, as they are known – during an April 2 meeting of the finance and economic development committee. For the most part, the rules codify what the city has already been doing when it comes to arrangements for companies to build and/or operate municipal facilities such as arenas, said Jeff Byrne, the city’s procurement manager. The policy also adds a requirement to report back to committee and council about the results of the partnership. Bob Brocklebank, a representative of the Federation of Citizens’ Associations and the Glebe Community Association, told the committee that the city needs to be open and provide as much information as possible to convince the public that a partnership is the best idea.

“If a P3 is truly better than a traditional approach, let the public see that is the case,” he said. “Being open about it will reduce the strife that has plagued past projects.” Brocklebank said he has no “ideological objections” to P3s, but the community needs to be fully engaged in the process – both before and after a project is approved and completed – to ensure success. public information

The committee supported an addition from Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans to include a line requiring details about proposed P3s to be released to the public for consultation and information as soon as possible in the process. The formalized policy came out of a request from the city auditor general’s office in 2006. The audit required the city to boost accountability, solidify the business case for partnerships and improve how the results are reported to councillors and the public. Clarifying the roles and responsibilities of city staff in that process was also suggested.

HolaEcuador: A Canadian beachfront development in Ecuador

Enjoy a year-round tropical paradise in a secure, comfortable environment

Gordon Poole, Co-Owner of HolaEcuador, one of the Canadians taking part in the project.

Tired of scraping your windows and shovelling snow? Escape to the warmth and charm of Ecuador! Home to the world-famous Galápagos Islands, millions of hectares of untouched rainforests, massive Andes mountains and hundreds of kilometres of pristine beaches, Ecuador is finding its place on the world stage as a top-tier destination. But it’s not just the weather that’s hot in Ecuador — the real estate market is cooking too, and a Canadian company is making it easy to own a beachfront paradise of which dreams are made. HolaEcuador Property Development Inc. develops and sells beach properties on the Pacific coast of Ecuador. Mirador San Jose — the largest of HolaEcuador’s projects — has over 1600 lots to choose from. Managed by Canadian owners and investors, Mirador San Jose is the perfect winter escape, retirement project, investment and/or rental property opportunity.

Why Ecuador? Unparalleled mix of nature and culture Where else can you visit a volcano on horseback in the morning, meet tribal elders at an Amazonian jungle resort in the afternoon and finish the day with a seafood dinner in an

oceanfront restaurant? One of the most biodiverse places on the planet, Ecuador is the ideal location for outdoor activities such as all types of water sports, biking, fishing, hiking and nature-gazing. Need a fix of culture and culinary wonders? The capital city Quito, perched among volcanoes in the Andes mountains at 9,350 feet boasts the UNESCO World Heritage colonial district, with architecture, restaurants and nightlife that rival the best of European cities. Fantastic climate The climate in Ecuador is ideal all year long, without the extreme wet seasons that are common to the tropics. Being located on the equator, the country never experiences the devastating hurricanes and major tropical storms that are commonplace in regions such as Mexico and Florida. The average temperature varies between 23C and 28C and the water temperature in front of Mirador San Jose is 23C or more, throughout the year. Excellent investment In addition to all the great lifestyle advantages of being in Ecuador, it is also an incredible investment opportunity not to be overlooked. “We have many property owners that missed the Costa Rica boom and are very pleased to find that it’s still possible to acquire a property

Full ownership homes? yes! Lots from $12,000 Beach Properties

Owning property at the Mirador San Jose is ideal for those looking to diversify their investment portfolio. The value of the lots at the development has increased on average by 45 per cent over the last two years. And there are no taxes on capital gains on the occasional sale of properties in Ecuador, even for second and third residences, which makes investing in Ecuadorian real estate and interesting alternative to the stock markets. Further, property owners can take advantage of the property value increase while generating rental income.

Welcome to Mirador San Jose Mirador San Jose is located 60 kilometres south of Eloy Alfaro International Airport in the port city of Manta and just minutes north of Machalilla National Park, a spectacular jungle and marine park. Accessible by the Routa del Sol, a brand new highway built specifically to cater to the region’s growing tourist population, Mirador San Jose consists of over 1600 lots on a 130-acre, master planned, gated beachfront property. The development features all basic services (water, sewage, electricity) running underground, as well as domestic waste and sewage recycling, high speed Internet, plenty of parks, playgrounds and recreational areas with tennis courts, soccer field and swimming pools. Further, there are three sectors within the development zoned for restaurants, bars, shops, boutiques, cafés, grocery stores and a medical centre. “You’re not buying a cottage lot; these are full ownership properties in a resort town,” says Mr. Poole. “Fully serviced lots a short 10-minute walk from the beach are available for under $12,000. It’s very difficult to find this value and quality elsewhere in the world, which is why our properties are selling quickly. Of the 600+ home sites sold to

date, more than 400 have been purchased by Canadians, and the remainder mainly by Ecuadorians. Since this past September alone, 45 home sites have been snapped up by OttawaGatineau residents.” Once clients have secured their lot, HolaEcuador will help them build the beach home of their dreams. “We offer many home models for all tastes and budgets,” says Mr. Poole. “We also offer custom house and condominium design services. Our architects and engineers work with clients to make their dream house a reality, at prices that are a fraction of what they would pay in North America. Luxurious homes can be built in Ecuador for US$75 to $95 per square foot. We have nice little two-bedroom bungalows that are available for only $55,000 and larger, two-story luxurious homes with private pool available for $161,900 — land and taxes included!”

HolaEcuador Property Development Inc. HolaEcuador Property Development Inc. is owned and operated by Canadians with offices in Trois-Rivières, QC and Manta, Ecuador, and with regional sales representatives across Eastern Canada. Co-owner Gordon Poole lives in the Ottawa area and makes frequent visits to the Mirador San Jose project, where a team of Canadian and Ecuadorian professionals are permanently located. “Nearly half of our clientele comes from referrals from existing customers, which demonstrates how excited property owners are to be part of this community,” says Mr. Poole. “Our property owners vary from adventurers in their 20s to pre-retirees in their 40s and 50s who are buying property now, while it’s still affordable. Some intend to use their property for vacationing only, while others are planning to use it as a rental income investment. Certain clients see property ownership in Ecuador as a means to stretch their vacation and investment dollars further, while others are simply looking to escape the cold winters. Here in Ecuador you can do both.” HolaEcuador will be holding a free informational seminar on the lifestyle and financial benefits of property ownership in Ecuador on April 18, 20 and 21.

in an oceanfront development such as ours,” says Gordon Poole, co-owner of HolaEcuador. “In fact, real estate prices in Ecuador match those of Costa Rica of 15 years ago.” Indeed, many people dream of owning a property in the tropics, but the capital costs can be significant. Property in Ecuador, however, is absolutely within the reach of many Canadians’ budget. Ecuadorians enjoy the lowest cost of living in all of South America, a high standard of living and a stable, democratic government.

Museum of Nature heads to Arctic for latest exhibit Steph Willems

steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - A vast portion of our country’s landmass lies far removed from the gaze of most Canadians, which is why the Museum of Nature wants to shed light on it. The Canadian Museum of Nature launched its latest exhibit – Extraordinary Arctic – on April 3, allowing visitors to explore the landscape, wildlife, culture and history of the Canadian Arctic. The exhibit coincides with the 100th anniversary of the start of the Canadian Arctic Exhibition of 1913, a fiveyear voyage by government scientists that mapped and catalogued the geography, wildlife and culture of the region. Calling the expedition “an important milestone in Canadian science and exploration,” museum president and CEO Meg Beckel said about 60 per cent of the museum’s research and collections programs have an Arctic focus, often with national and international partners. “These collaborations provide insights and discoveries

about the indigenous plants and animals from these vast parts of Canada,” she said. Beckel said that last year the museum launched a fiveyear plan to “inspire and engage audiences” in Canada and overseas. The end of this initiative will coincide with Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017, when a permanent gallery devoted to the Arctic will be opened. film premiere

The series of events and activities planned for the month include the Ottawa premiere of the 2011 National Film Board production Vanishing Point on April 11, a tale of two Inuit communities in Canada and Greenland. Weekend activities will serve to engage children and their parents. Among them, an interactive igloo-building activity will allow kids to experience the precision needed to build the traditional Inuit structure, using pre-formed foam blocks. Kids can also learn some of the Inuktitut language, learn traditional throat singing, drumming and dancing, as

well as play games. For the duration of the exhibit, visitors can look at the artifacts and samples returned to Ottawa from the 1913-18 expedition.

David Gray, a researcher, filmmaker and historian who serves on a Parks Canada committee for Northern national parks, was on hand for the launch and will present in-

formation and artifacts during an April 27 appearance. Gray is set to embark on a month-long expedition to Banks Island – located on the southwestern edge of the Arc-

tic archipelago – starting in July. Accompanying him will be five other team members, plus local guides. “We have a ship’s captain, a (crewmember) who’s also a descendent of one of the men who died on the (1913) expedition, so he’s going to look for his great-great uncle’s remains,” said Gray. “Another woman is also a descendent of an expedition member; her and two cousins are going. They’re looking for the family connection, the genealogical connection.” The expedition will stop at 10 sites visited by the 1913 expedition. The first point – Sachs Harbour – is named after the ship Mary Sachs, which was beached on the remote coast during the expedition. Gray’s first visit to the north, in 1968, was to study the rebounding population of muskox on Banks Island. He has been back to the North, in one capacity or another, almost every year since. The full list of Extraordinary Arctic events and dates at the Canadian Museum of Nature can be found online at nature.ca/arctic.

Boys and Girls Club gains high-profile spokespersons Steph Willems

steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - Despite being sidelined since an early-season injury, Senators defenceman Erik Karlsson is still a hero to his fans when off the ice, as shown by the rock-star reception he got from the kids of the Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa. Karlsson and his wife Therese joined Sens president and chief executive Cyril Leeder at the organization’s Dumaurier Avenue headquarters on March 27 to announce the couple will serve as spokespersons for the club. Therese volunteers in the organization’s cooking club. Karlsson, 22, had his Achilles tendon severed during a game against the New Jersey Devils on Feb. 13, and has been in rehabilitation since. Boys and Girls Club president Graham Macmillan said he hopes the announcement of the will encourage people to volunteer for the club. Macmillan finished his introduction of the special guests with a message directed as much to the children in the room as the adults. “We all share one thing -- our motto is ‘belong, believe and achieve’ -- and I think each and every one of us, and all the adults in the room, love belonging to the Boys and Girls

Club. We love being part of it. We really believe in each and every one of you, and celebrate all of your accomplishments and achievements.” Leeder commented on the long history his organization has had with the club, calling it “an exciting day” for the Senators. “At the core, the Senators and the Boys and Girls Club believe in a lot of the same values,” said Leeder. “We really believe in the youth of our community and believe in helping make Ottawa a better place, and doing what we can to give everyone the same fair chance and opportunities.” Leeder said he is encouraged when he sees Sens players and their spouses volunteering in their own communities. He also praised Karlsson’s personable qualities, which he noted immediately after the young player was drafted.

“She’s always telling me about the kids.” Erik Karlsson

Before speaking, Karlsson and Therese were welcomed with homemade gifts by club champions Daniella and Saeed. “Therese has been a part of this organization for way longer than I have, and she’s always telling me about the kids ... and is always laughing when she comes home,” said Karlsson. “Even though I’ve been here half an hour I can already feel that joy.” Karlsson told the kids how Canada was similar in many respects to his homeland of Steph Willems/Metroland Sweden, and how he looked forward to giving Senators defenceman Erik Karlsson and wife Therese at the Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa back to those living in his new home. on March 27, where it was announced the couple will become spokespeople for the club.

Having issues with the local wildlife? You are not alone. As urban development encroaches on previously untamed areas, more human-wildlife conflicts result. People are frequently confronted with many wildlife species, including raccoons, groundhogs, squirrels, skunks, and a variety of birds. These animals have largely managed to adapt well to our presence. Humans, on the other hand, are still mastering this living arrangement. It is important for people to understand the need for effective, lasting, and humane solutions to occasional conflicts with wildlife. If you find an injured wild animal that is bleeding, has a broken limb, is walking in circles or falling over when walking, or another obvious injury, please contact Ottawa Humane Society’s Emergency Services at 613-725-1532. For large wildlife, such as deer, moose and bear, please call Ottawa Police Services at 613-236-1222. If a wild animal does not show any signs of injury, then it is best to leave it alone. Wildlife issues are temporary problems and there are solutions. It seems daunting, but if you work out a solution, you can make sure you never have this problem again. Property owners are responsible for dealing with their wildlife situation humanely and legally. There are solutions and tips

available at www.ottawahumane.ca to get the animals to relocate on their own. Please be advised that although you are only seeing one animal, it may not be alone. The birthing season runs from late February to early October, and the babies are helpless when first born and not yet able to leave their nest or den with mom. If you scare the mother away, she may abandon her young. It is critical not to trap young inside, as they will perish, possibly falling between walls and requiring expensive drywall removal and causing very bad odours if they die in inaccessible areas. Many birds fly into windows at this time of year. The sun is low in the sky and causes some unusual reflections. If a bird hits your window, confine the bird in a ventilated box, with a covered hot water bottle in the bottom. The box should be closed, which helps slow down the bird’s metabolism, and placed in a warm area of the house that is isolated from people and pets. Leave the bird alone for one hour. After one hour, they can take the box outside and open it. It may take a few moments for the bird’s eyes to adjust to the light. If it flies away – perfect! The bird was simply stunned. If it does not fly away it needs care. Contact the Wild Bird Care Centre at 613-828-2849. If you have further questions about wild animals, you may contact the Ottawa Humane Society at 613-725-3166 ext. 262, or send an email to ohs@ottawahumane.ca.

Please note: The Ottawa Humane Society has many other companion animals available for adoption. Featured animals are adopted quickly!

Orléans News EMC - Thursday, April 11, 2013

Millie is a spayed female, agouti and white Rex mix who loves to frolic, jump and play. She is about 7 months old, and was surrendered to the shelter by her owner on March 14. Millie is looking for a loving home with lots of room to run, great toys to keep her busy and chew toys to help keep her teeth fit and trim. She will need an owner who is ready to accommodate a rabbit that is still growing! She will need a larger cage that she can grow into, and plenty of time to play outside of her cage! For more information about these or other animals available for adoption, please call the Adoption Centre at 613-725-3166 ext. 258 or visit www.ottawahumane.ca.

Aries, you must stand up for what you believe is right, even if it costs you a few friends along the way. It is the price to pay for doing the honorable thing.

Scorpio, say what is on your mind because sometimes people just need to hear the honest truth. You have a good way of exacting authority and representing others.

Gemini, think about adding some new skills to your resume. It’s not that your job is in turmoil right now, but it always pays to be a step ahead when it comes to your career.

Sagittarius, get together with people who share your love of adventure this week. Together you can enjoy time spent living vicariously and enjoying the scenery flying by.

Cancer, just because everyone else is making changes doesn’t mean you have to at this time as well. If things are working out, then let them stay as they are for a while.

This weeks puzzle answers in next weeks issue

Afrikaans 51. Grapefruit and tangerine hybrid 52. Grasp the written word 54. Bark sharply 55. UC Berkeley 56. Brew

Libra, don’t feel guilty if your opinion differs from others’. If you don’t agree with the consensus, then that is your opinion and your right.

Taurus, take a trip this week if it will help you reach your goals. The change of scenery could give you an entirely new perspective on a situation that needs tackling.

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!

Capricorn, if you want to get real results this time, change your approach with a person who has been troublesome in the past. You will get the knack of persuasion.

Don’t set limits on what you do, Leo. Changes at work mean you may need to fill different roles that require new skills. There’s a good chance you can master them.

Discuss issues from your past that you have yet to resolve, Aquarius. This is the week to “come clean” with a spouse or romantic partner or someone else close to you.

Networking comes in all shapes and sizes, Virgo. Attend a fun function to put yourself in touch with new people and lead to encounters that can help your future.

Pisces, do generous things for others, and not only will you feel great, but also you will get an unexpected reward.

Here are a few tips to keep your eyes healthy: â&#x20AC;˘ If you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t done so already, quit smoking right away. Use a smoke cessation aid such as HabitrolÂŽ nicotine patches or ThriveMCnicotine gum or lozenges. Talk to your pharmacist to create your smoke cessation solution which may be reimbursed by your insurance. â&#x20AC;˘ See your eye health professional regularly. â&#x20AC;˘ Ask him/her how often you should consult according to your age and situation. â&#x20AC;˘ Ask your pharmacist about other eye health preventive measures that could be taken aside from smoke cessation.

The more you smoke, the more you put your eye health at risk. Luckily, you can turn things around! Quitting smoking will reduce your chances of developing these types of diseases, and if you are already affected by one, this will slow down its progression.
