EMC news - Avalon residents are unhappy with a large pile of scrap wood almost as tall as the neighbouring houses. The pile is on an unused lot at Brian Coburn and Portobello boulevards, owned by Minto Group, which is building houses nearby. “It’s just a mess,” said Anik Couturier, who lives on the nearby Nantes Street. “There are a lot of kids in the neighbourhood; the risk is so high. When you’re a kid, you’re attracted to that.” Couturier drives past the site every day on the way to work, and said she has spoken with other neighbours who are worried a child will get hurt, or someone will set the pile on fire as a prank. The pile is mostly scrap pieces of wood. See DEBRIS, page 6

he was receiving a massage in the John Hancock building, along with several other runners who had completed the 42-kilometre race on April 15. Morin, an engineer who works at Alcatel-Lucent in Kanata, had finished the race earlier that day and was recovering.

A manager announced an “incident had just occurred” and all runners were asked to proceed away from the finish line area. “We were all asked to leave and went upstairs on the streets,” said Morin. “The streets were just crazy with people in shock and you could smell the bomb blast,” he said. It was impossible to walk on the roads, he said, with the streets flooded with SWAT teams, ambulance and other emergency workers. “People were crying,” he said.

“They said there were body parts everywhere.” Morin said he tried not to look at the area of the bomb blast. He walked five kilometres to meet up with his family, who had accompanied him to watch the marathon. Along the way, Morin received texts from concerned friends and family members. “Everyone was texting me to ask if I was OK,” he said. See OTTAWA, page 4

Transportation and traffic biggest concerns for Beacon Hill residents Brier Dodge

EMC news - Most of the comments at Beacon Hill-Cyrville Coun. Tim Tierney’s recent open house for residents centered around one topic: cars. Tierney gave a briefing on the light rail transit updates, as both Blair and Cyrville stations will be built. He said that because the city wants to have the Blair to Hurdman section of the LRT done by Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017, construction would be “aggressive” to get this portion completed. While some residents questioned the number of people who would use the Cyrville station, Tierney said that it’s an area he expects to see grow and develop with more residential projects in the coming years. There were also concerns that there won’t be ample parking at Blair for users to park to use LRT to get downtown. “There is no appetite or money to purchase more land for parking,” Tierney said. While the point is to keep traffic off highway 174 in general, adding a park-and-ride at Blair could prompt Orléans commuters to drive to Blair instead of using

Trim Road or Place d’Orléans park-and-rides. Some people have wondered if Shoppers City East will turn into parking, but Tierney said it’s planned to be commercial properties, with residential behind. SENSPLEX TRAFFIC

While the Richcraft Sensplex is thrilling local arena users, some area drivers are concerned that the increase in traffic will cause problems. Tierney said there are pre-existing issues on Shefford Road, where the arena is being built. Currently, soccer games at the arena location all finish at the same time, and cars pile out at the same time – including the overflow parked on the street. “After an 8 p.m. game, you might as well wait half an hour (to drive down Shefford),” Tierney said. He said the hockey rinks will have staggered start and stop times – like 7 p.m. then 7:30 p.m. – to prevent the same issue. With the arena construction in the front of the property, soccer fields will be moved to the back of the property. There will be separate parking in the back for soccer users, which Tierney said will eliminate soccer parking on the road.

Students raise $20,000 for Flutter Fund Brier Dodge

EMC news - As members of the Goneau family came up on stage to see the final total raised by Algonquin College public relations students at their end-of-year gala, their jaws dropped when the cheque was rolled out. It read $17,000 – more than they expected the students eight events to raise. And then, a change was made – another $3,000 had come in, raising the total to $20,000. The Goneau family, along with several friends, run Valérie’s Flutter Foundation in honour of Valérie Goneau, who died almost two years ago from a rare form of cancer. The foundation raises money for rare cancer research by dispersing research grants. Valérie’s younger brother Éric, now 19 and the president of the foundation, worked with the Algonquin College students to run the Flutter As One campaign during the past school year. The campaign included eight groups of students running fundraising events, ranging from culinary events to a ball hockey tournament. Stephanie Larocque, of Orléans, met the Goneaus when her father played music at one of the Flutter Fund’s gala events. So when her program at Algonquin asked each group to pitch a charity that would benefit from the students efforts, she suggested Valérie’s Flutter Foundation. “It’s small, it’s from Orlé-

ans and it would be awesome to raise awareness for a small local charity,” she said. “It doesn’t get a lot of funding, so that drew a bit of a spark.” Éric said members of the foundation were thrilled to hear that the students chose the foundation for their school project, because his sister loved education and thrived in an academic setting. Valérie graduated from Beatrice-Desloges high school with top marks, and was studying civil engineering at the University of Ottawa when she died. Her father, Chris Goneau, said he even took her to register for classes at the university the day before she died. “These students created something greater, something you can’t put a dollar value on,” Éric said. “You have all embraced her vision.” With the campaign titled Flutter As One, the students spread the word that the theme for the gala event, held at the Aulde Dubliner in the Byward Market on April 16, would be Flutter Has Won. Éric said students could relate to the charity because many of them were the same age as him, or Valérie would have been this year. “I think they can relate when I share the story of my sister,” Éric said. With the last two weeks of the program “like playoffs”, as one student said, the events all took place at the start of April. The Goneau family attended all of the events, with even Valérie’s grandparents making it out to many.

Algonquin College public relations students raised money for Valérie’s Flutter Foundation through their public relations “Flutter As One” campaign. They presented a cheque for $20,000 to the family of Valérie Goneau, who passed away from cancer in 2011. Valérie’s Flutter Foundation donates money to grants for rare cancer research. Here, Algonquin College students hold the giant cheque they presented to the Goneau family at the Aulde Dubliner Pour House in Ottawa on April 16. Public relations teacher Bradley Moseley-Williams told students that despite all the team members and Goneau family who packed the events and end of year gala, there was one important person missing who had carried the team through their academic year and campaign. “I think we were very inspired by a young woman that many of us will never know,” he said. “Valérie was part of the team.”

Ottawa runners race online for news about marathoners Continued from page 1

“I texted them I was fine.” Morin said runners were having trouble making calls on their cellphones, but were able to send out texts. “We relied on strangers and borrowed their cellphones and got a lot of help from Boston people – they were very friendly.” Morin said he hopes the tragedy won’t hurt the marathon in the future. “I’m trying to figure this out today,” he said, a day after the event. “I don’t think it will stop people from doing it (competing in marathons). I think it will unite people around not letting the terrorists affect how we behave.” BOMB

No Kanata runners were injured after two bomb blasts killed two people and left more than 100 injured at the Boston Marathon on Monday, April 15. Nine Kanata residents were registered to compete in the annual 42-kilometre event, and more than 2,000 Canadians were in Boston for

the race. No Canadians were injured at the marathon, according to the Ministry of Foreign of Affairs on April 15. Jane Armstrong, a Kanata Lakes woman who trains runners in duathlon, triathlon and running events, was at home watching the results live via the Internet the day of the race. She was tracking the results of two of her students as well as some of her friends from Ottawa’s running community competing in the event. One of her students, Jenny Hopkins had already finished the race with a time of three hours and 29 minutes – her other student, Terri Bolster, still had more than an hour before she would reach the finish line. “I stopped at one point, went for a run and a bike workout for one hour around the time of the explosion,” said Armstrong. When she returned to check the race results on the computer, the website listed Bolster as having completed 40 kilometres. “I could tell she was running strong so I was puzzled,”


said Armstrong. Then the emails and phone calls started pouring in. “What’s going on in Boston, Jane? Do you know?” read one email. Armstrong then checked for media reports, and learned bombs had gone off near the finish line. “Then I panicked,” she said. “Terri had to be close to the explosion or right in the thick of it.” Armstrong went to her Facebook home page, where she was connected with hundreds of runners and running groups, and left messages for her two students. “I knew Jenny had her phone with her, I said please call me.” Both students eventually responded that they were alive and unhurt. “Both of them said they’re happy to be alive and well.” Bolster, a 62-year-old Orléans woman and a retired teacher, said she’d been one kilometre away from the finish line when the bombs went off. “All the runners were panicked,” Bolster later told

Renfrew County marathoners are shaken, after two bomb blasts left three people dead and more than 100 others injured at Monday’s Boston Marathon.

�������������������������� �������������������������

Stewart Campbell, a former Renfrew resident who now lives in Pembroke, celebrated his 55th birthday by completing the 117th edition of one of the world’s most prestigious road races. Campbell finished his 25th marathon in 3 hours and 11 minutes. But about an hour later one of his Pembroke running colleagues, Bob Bobeldijk, 76, was within about 300 metres of the finish line where the first bomb exploded. Bobeldijk kept on running, but 10 seconds later a second bomb went off, closer to him,

and security people rushed onto the course and prevented any runners from continuing. Earlier in the race, Bobeldijk stopped to use one of the race course portable washrooms, which Campbell said may have saved his life. Most worrisome for Bobeldijk was that he knew his wife Arpick was waiting for him near the finish line. It was only when they found each other, and embraced, that he was able to relax. “Everyone (of my friends here) was worried because they knew I would come in about this time,” he said. “It was emotional to see each other alive,” he said. Bobeldijk also emailed his daughter in Pembroke and son in Vancouver to let them know he was okay. “I’m just devastated,” said Campbell. “It’s changed the whole marathoning scene. I was hoping to go to New York for the marathon this fall, but now there’s going to be dog sniffers everywhere.” He was also hoping to run his 10th Boston Marathon next year, but now time will tell what organizers are thinking about the future of this and many other international events. Renfrew resident Colleen Berry, who has run four Boston Marathons, was not in Boston this week, but says she had wondered for years if something like this might actually happen. “Every year I’ve stood at the start of the Boston Marathon for the national anthem and wondered if something could happen with thousands of people in the same place,” said Berry. “I was always praying, ‘Don’t let something like 9/11 happen.’”

EMC news – The Ray Friel Recreation Complex will play host to a sledge hockey tournament on April 26 to 28. Sledge hockey players sit in small sleds with blades, and hold picks to propel themselves across the ice. It’s an adapted version of the game that allows disabled players who cannot participate in able-bodied hockey to play. “Ten years ago, when I started playing, people wouldn’t have seen it,” said Orléans-raised sledge hockey player Alain Bazinet. “Sledge hockey is a lot more well known now.” Bazinet, 28, was born with cerebral palsy and has been a long-time member of the Ottawa sledge hockey community, and the captain of the provincial team. The tournament will feature three divisions for different levels of competition, including a junior division for youth players, ranging in age from three to early teens. The 12-team tournament has clubs travelling from as far as New York to face off against National Capital players. Bazinet plays with the Ot-

tawa Sledgehammers as well as the Stittsville Falcons, and participates in house league games as well. “I play pretty well on every team that they let me play,” said the Rockland resident. He said that putting players into tournaments with a variety of competitive levels helps promote development. “It gives everyone an opportunity to see the different levels of play, to aspire to the higher more competitive teams, or to aspire to join the provincial and national programs as well,” he said. While some players like Bazinet were born with disabilities, other players, such as Nepean’s Ben Delaney, started as able bodied players. Delaney played hockey, but lost his leg to cancer. Now 17, he has recently been selected for the national development team. “We’re grassroots, so we’re trying to build a program that will feed into the national team,” said Sledge Hockey of Eastern Ontario marketing director Cathryn Kallwitz. “This is the first time we’ve had a junior division; there are some really great kids.” Planning a sledge hockey tournament is slightly more

difficult than a regular hockey tournament, because almost all the players require accessible accommodations. Instead of one host hotel, organizers have to secure enough ground-level hotel rooms at several nearby hotels for players, many of whom use wheelchairs. While they weren’t able to secure one of the fully accessible rinks in the city, Kallwitz said they have been working with staff at Ray Friel to make sure the tournament won’t have any barriers for the players, and they can focus on hockey. The tournament will feature a showcase scrimmage with local councillors and media making a sledge hockey team on April 27 from 1 to 2:15 p.m. The game will be followed by two Ottawa teams – the Orléans Barbarians and Stittsville Falcons – facing off from 2:15 to 3:30 p.m. Organizers are hopeful that anyone interested in sledge hockey will stop by to check out the tournament at some point in the weekend,. “We’re one of the (sledge hockey) leaders in the world right now,” Bazinet said. “It’s really important to have the young people trying to step up the level. It’s growing a quite a quick pace.”

Debris pile needed for active building site: councillor Continued from page 1

Brent Strachan, Minto’s senior vice-president, said the wood is there because it’s material that will either be reused or recycled. “The pile is our construction recycling pile,” he said. “Instead of garbage being shipped off, it’s sent there to be sorted and recycled.” He said material will be coming and going from the site for the next year while construction on nearby projects is underway. Residents are frustrated they weren’t getting any answers on future actions that would be taken to stop children from using the site, said Couturier. Her biggest concern is how easy it is to gain access to the site. On April 18, Strachan said

plans had begun for a fence to be built around the perimeter “in the next week or two.” He said the fence will be tall enough to keep out children from accessing the site while they continue to see material sorted and stored. A request for comment from Coun. Stephen Blais’s office resulted in a phone call from the councillor, who is in hospital recuperating from a heart attack in January. “I’ve been in discussions with Minto for the past day or two, and bylaw is taking a look at the site,” he said. “There are no grounds for the issuance of a fine. It’s private property.” Blais said Minto needed a space to store their materials to keep them from being left in other parts of the neighbourhood, and had discussed the incoming fence with Min-

to staff. “We need to recognize that the neighbourhood is still a construction zone and there is active home building going on,” he said. “There are some inconviences that come along with that kind of home.”

Residents are upset that a pile of debris has been left at the corner of Portobello and Brian Coburn boulevards. Minto is using the area for material that is to be recycled or reused, and has planned to install a fence.

One of Boston’s finest hours


ragedies bring out the best and the worst in people. In the case of the explosions at the Boston Marathon on April 15, the worst is painfully obvious. Three people dead, including an eight-year-old boy, and more than 100 others injured. This was an attempt to create terror, to hurt people, possibly to make a political statement. When the bombs went off, a flood of people rushed onto the streets. At first, it was a knee-jerk reaction to the horror and confusion of the scene. But almost immediately afterwards, another, larger flood of people rushed towards the site of the blasts, nurses, doctors, paramedics and emergency workers helping the victims and sealing off the area. Runners stranded en route to the finish line were surrounded by Boston residents who offered them clothing, water, warm clothing and cellphones to contact their loved ones. If this was one of Boston’s worst hours, it was also one of its finest. This act of terror did not have the presumably desired effect, if the reactions of some of the runners we spoke to following the blast is anything to judge by. Many runners praised the marathon and said they

hoped to compete in it again. Ottawa will play host to its own prestigious running event, Ottawa race weekend on May 24 and 25. Following the explosions at the Boston Marathon, Ottawa race weekend organizers acknowledged that the attack made them more conscious about security surrounding the annual race. But it certainly won’t stop them from holding the event. Terrorists have tried in the past to instill a culture of fear surrounding large public gatherings – for instance the backpack bombing at the 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympics Games that killed two people and injured 120. But every Olympics since has simply grown bigger and better. And the athletes and the fans continue to flock to the events. Acts of terrorism are hard to predict and difficult to completely prevent, however they are rare events and have a negligible effect on public opinion, except to make them more security conscious. The Boston Marathon bombing is no different. The resiliency of the fans and runners in the face of a horrific crime is one more example of tragedy bringing out the best in people.


Life on Mars: the job-cutting economics of science fiction


ew people realize the connection between economics and science fiction, but the similarities are dramatic. Most obvious, is the language component. The jargon-laden gibberish spoken by economists closely resembles the techno-slang uttered by space warriors. For one there is incentivization and confronting redundancies, for the other there is the antigravity field and the leap to hyperspace — both equally intelligible. But there are other similarities, such as the common belief in vaporization. This is most apparent when attacks on budget deficits are in season, as they are now. Both corporate and governmental decision-makers are vigorously seeking to better their bottom line. At tax time, we in Ottawa know what those who are doing the cutting think: they reduce their costs and their bottom line looks better. For a corporation, that means increased value for shareholders; for a government, it means applause from the media and some of the voters. Thus, you get events like government cuts to the compliance program of the Canada Revenue Agency, which will involve about 300 full-time jobs. You get decisions like the closing of seven Department of Fisheries and Oceans libraries

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town across the country, one of them opened only last year. The move has been deplored in the scientific community. No figures about jobs lost have been released, but you know there will be some. We can leave to more learned people the assessment of the efficiencies involved. Can more really be done with less, as the job-slashers always insist? There’s always a first time. More important, and less frequently examined, is the question of what happens to those people whose jobs are lost. Somehow an assumption is made that these cuts have no impact. Those who lose their jobs happily trundle off to other jobs. Or, perhaps, they just vanish, leaving blameless employers happily to contemplate their improved bottom line. The concept of the vaporized unemployed fits nicely with the theory that societal happiPublished weekly by:

ness is the sum of all the corporate and governmental bottom lines. But what if laid-off people don’t actually disappear? What if they turn up at some other office looking for work? And what if that office is in the process of confronting redundancies too? What you have then is a number of people who are out of work, who can’t buy things, who pay less or no taxes. That doesn’t help the economy. The more cuts are made, the more of such people there are. Assuming they are not vaporized. In addition to the economic cost are the human costs — children who have to do without, parents who can’t afford day care. There are certainly corporate and government economists out there who can explain how this benefits our society, but their explanations escape me right now. When governments say they want to crack down on tax evasion, how does that go with laying off some of the people involved in that? When governments say that job creation is their aim, how is that aim advanced by eliminating jobs? Perhaps in outer space, it works, where the rules may be different. Perhaps in outer space, you can create jobs by cutting jobs. Perhaps in outer space that’s the usual way of doing things.


>Ă›iĂŠ >`Â…>“ʇÊ"Ă€Â?i>Â˜ĂƒĂŠÂ‡ĂŠĂˆnnÂ‡ÂŁĂˆxĂ“



Not having any knowledge to the contrary, we can imagine that, in outer space, budget deficits can be put into a transporter and made to vanish into another galaxy. We can imagine that jobs can be created with a Laser Job Creation Apparatus (patent pending). It is a bit harder to imagine that down here. If the jobless are vaporized, who are all those folks down at the food bank? Yet it clearly is part of the belief systems of those who are making the big decisions. It can’t do any hard harm to cut 300 jobs, they reason. Actually, it will do good. Yeah, that’s the ticket. It works on Mars.

Do screens make kids happy?


he other day, I surprised my children by giving them an hour of “free time� on my laptop. They were especially skeptical because the day before, I’d been on a radio panel playing the role of the mother who is militantly against screens at home. A TED Talk inspired me to divert from my position temporarily. Following a number of experiments in which he connected children in remote villages of India to the Internet, Sugata Mitra concluded the following: “In nine months, a group of children left alone with a computer in any language, would reach the same standard as an office secretary in the West.� The cool thing about Mitra’s findings is that none of the children in the experiments understood a word of English when they started, yet they managed to garner the language skills required to navigate the computer, learn information well beyond their years and put it into context. Amazing, right? I was skeptical. I thought, given an hour or more of free time would trigger my kids – who are extremely screen-starved at home – to scope out free video games. Instead, my eight-year-old decided to look for information on roman numerals. Within 30 minutes, he’d sourced a chart of roman numerals from one to 100, which he transcribed onto a piece of paper. Midway through his session, he said, “Mom, if I know the letters for one, five, 10, 50 and 100, I can count all the way to 988 in roman numerals.� Impressive. So far the experiment



By Jim Watson

All around, they came away from the experiment with a considerable amount of knowledge. But would this be the case if I allowed them unrestricted use of the computer every day? I have my doubts. After all, what is rare is valuable. In my opinion, the novelty of the computer contributed greatly to the success Mitra’s experiments and my own. It can be tough for parents to know how to control technology. With touch screens, parents are replacing everything from books to real-life activities like tea parties with tablet apps, where a single swipe of a finger allows kids to experience instant gratification. As any parent knows, the devices tend to keep even the youngest children quiet for extended periods. Hanna Rosin – the author of The End of Men and no stranger to controversy – wrote an article in The Atlantic last month in which she concludes parents are altogether too militant about restricting use of technology, particularly touch-screen.

eration,� Rosin discounts the idea that screens displace time spent interacting with adults. She writes off research that has linked attention deficit disorder (ADD) and screens, labelling it fear-mongering. In the end, she becomes a convert, allowing her three-year-old unrestricted access and accepting the brilliance of apps for toddlers, including one of her favourites, Toca Tea Party. When I first read Rosin’s piece, I thought “maybe I have been too militant.� But at the end of the day, I preface all rule-making decisions with a question: Will this make my kids happy? And there’s really nothing about screen technology that will contribute to my children’s happiness. Screen time may not displace time spent interacting with me or another adult, as Rosin acknowledges, but it does displace all things that contribute to real happiness: the chance to be bored; opportunities to reflect; experiences of conflict and resolution; and most of all, pro-social activities, like talking and playing make-believe with friends – which may or may not include spilling real tea on the real floor and having to address the real-life consequences of that.

When people think of Ottawa, the usual images come to most minds: the Parliament Buildings, the Rideau Canal in winter, the Ottawa River, the Byward Market, etc. These are important Ottawa institutions but they are all central in a city that is made up of an enormous LANDMASSTHATEXTENDSFARTOTHEEAST SOUTH ANDWEST of those well-known landmarks. In fact, you can ďŹ t the entire landmasses of Montreal, Toronto, Calgary, Edmonton, and Vancouver within Ottawa’s boundaries and still have room to spare! This makes Ottawa unique in Canada as we are both a large urban city and also the largest rural city in the country. The postcard images many associate with Ottawa mean that the rural areas of Ottawa can sometimes be forgotten. But from Greely, to Osgoode, to Carp, and beyond, Ottawa’s rural areas have an incredibly diverse set of offerings across the agriculture, culinary, and business sectors.

The development plans for Ashcroft Homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s phase two of Eastboro.

New development in Navan one of many to come Brier Dodge

EMC news - Navan is growing. Not by one, or two families but hundreds over the next few years as new developments are planned. A public meeting was held on April 9 to discuss phase two of Ashcroft Homesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Eastboro development. The 23 hectare area being developed is bordered by Renaud Road, Belcourt Boulevard, Navan Road and Marchinch Road, where the RendezVous des Aines is located. The application to develop the area was filled out â&#x20AC;&#x153;quite some time ago,â&#x20AC;? but was incomplete, said city planner Michael Boughton. The application was finalized in December. The area will include about 250 single-family homes, plus semi-detached and higher density housing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The intention will be more highdensity housing, up to three-storey apartment buildings, which will need its own development application,â&#x20AC;? said May Pham, development planner with Ashcroft Homes. The proposal is being considered at the same time as the city reviews the community design plan for the east urban area of Ottawa. The community design plan calls for commercial space to be within the area, which hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been proposed in the Ashcroft development. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re nearing the end of this

(community design plan) process, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pretty sure this is how the city wants Navan Road to develop,â&#x20AC;? said Boughton. The area is currently zoned as a development reserve area, and Boughton said commercial uses are still up for discussion with the city. Few residents attended the meeting, but several voiced concerns about sidewalks and vehicle traffic, some of which has to do with the overall development of Navan and not just the Eastboro development. Coun. Rainer Bloess said that next year there will be funds allocated for the development of Brian Coburn Boulevard, which should relieve traffic on Renaud Road, and that Navan Road will eventually be expanded to four lanes. Boughton said this will lead to a fairly significant widening on the south side of Navan Road. Residents raised questions about sidewalks along the roads, as development increases the number of cars driving by. Some sidewalks will be built very soon by Ashcroft, and other portions up in the air until developers of other lands land begin to build. One resident inquired about hooking into water and sewer services. Bloess said that if that were to happen, there would first need to be an agreement with landowners to share the cost of extending the services from the existing city system.

Top 10 worldwide is a sweet spot for local decathelete Brier Dodge

EMC news - The decathalon gives athletes 10 different events to train for. It gives the competitors 10 chances to falter – but 10 chances to hit the right stride and achieve personal bests. Decathlete Pat Arbour just made five personal bests – in the same meet. As he hit his stride at the Jim Click Shootout in Arizona, he scored high enough to land in the current ninth place spot in the world rankings. “Everything was perfectly aligned,” he said. “I knew going in I felt confident, but I never thought I would score 7,593. Nothing ever came together at the same time (be-

“My goal has been to make 2016, this is just a step on the way.” PAT ARBOUR

fore).” The score he recorded at the Arizona meet on April 4 and 5 is the 10th best score ever recorded by a Canadian decathlete. And while the University of Ottawa graduate said some of the top European competitors still haven’t official registered scores yet, his success has made him re-evaluate his goals for the year. While he’s been gunning for the 2016 Olympic Games, he might be ahead of schedule. At the start of the year, qualifying for the 2013 world championship wasn’t a goal for Arbour, 25. But with his latest success, qualifying is suddenly a realistic season goal. “I never really considered making worlds,” he said. “My goal has been to make 2016, this is just a step on the way.”

JACQUES ROBERT Real Estate Lawyer Practicing since 1987

Arbour has a good shot at winning the national title this year in June. He aims to squeeze a gold medal into his already jam-packed bag – he needs nine different pairs of shoes for each meet. A good performance at the national championship means he could compete at the world championships in August in Russia. If he doesn’t qualify, he will still compete at the World University Games, also in Russia this summer. He needs to work towards scoring a 8,200 to hit Canada’s Olympic A qualifying standard. In decathlaton, athletes are awarded points for their time or distance on each event, not ranking. Now personal trainer in Nepean, Arbour trains year round with the Ottawa Lions Track and Field Club. He trains at the Louis Riel Dome in Blackburn Hamlet through the winter, dividing his time between all the events: the 100-metre dash, long jump, shot put, high jump, 400-metre run, 110-metre hurdles, discus throw, pole vault, javelin throw, and 1,500-metre run. It makes training a balancing act each week of how to best spend training hours. Arbour focused on throwing events as a teenager, always avoiding the track. Coach James Holder had been after him to make the switch for a while, but Arbour was apprehensive about competing in the running events. “I said I’d never do decathalon,” he said. “But two years later, he was my coach.” It means Arbour doesn’t’ dedicate as much time to the throwing events, which he specialized in as a teenager, and more time on sprinting and hurdles. “It’s time management, knowing where to put your efforts,” he said. “It takes a long time to mature as a decathlete. I’ve got the ability to be a lot calmer and not worry about what everyone else is doing.” Arbour will compete at the national championships in Moncton from June 20 to 23, where he will try and gain a berth on Canada’s world championship team.


Decathlete Pat Arbour gets ready to throw the javelin – one of the 10 events he competes in – during training at the Louis Riel Dome. He recently scored a top-10 score for a Canadian ever, which ranks him ninth in the world so far for 2013.

Green card gets green light from city Transit commission OKs Presto card launch on July 1 Laura Mueller

EMC news - OC Transpo has the go-ahead to roll out Presto smart cards for fare payment on July 1. The cards won’t be compatible with the Presto system in the GTA – yet – and transit commissioners were concerned about the delay in updating the cards’ cash balance online, but those worries weren’t enough for the commission to put the brakes on the smart card fare system. Starting May 18, OC Transpo will begin to distribute 184,000 of the remaining 200,000 free Presto cards the city initially planned to give out last year. The launch was plagued with delays and the past year has been “difficult, complex and (a) resource intensive project,” but the system is now ready to go, OC Transpo general manager John Manconi told the transit commission on April 17. Transit commission chairwoman Coun. Diane Deans called the final decision to OK Presto a “historic day” in Ottawa. After a year of delays, testing and tracking, the transit commission is more confident in moving forward with Presto now than it was a year ago, Deans added. As with any large, technical system, there will be glitches, Manconi said. But there are no system-wide issues that would

cause concern, he added. “It certainly seems that we’ve turned the corner from a mood of cynicism to optimism,” said transit commissioner and Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess. Beyond technical problems there are other nagging issues that bothered transit commissioners. One issue is the 24- to 48hour delay between when customers top up the cash balance on their cards and when they have access to use that money on a bus. A delay is undesir-

able, commissioners agreed, but if it’s unavoidable for technical reasons, Metrolinx should at least try to ensure the delay is consistent. A range causes confusion, said new commissioner Mark Johnson during his first meeting. “It would be good to have a defined time period so as to avoid customer confusion,” Johnson said. Manconi said he and OC Transpo will come back at some time in the future with a better solution. Ottawa Presto cardholders won’t yet be able to tap their cards on Presto readers in Toronto or Hamilton. There is no date on when that might happen. The GTA system will be upgraded before the end of the year and then Metrolinx will be making the decision about when to upgrade Ottawa to that same system to ensure all cards work in both regions. A Presto replacement for paper tickets is not being addressed right now. For Para Transpo, the city will be spending $3 million to find an interim technological solution to bridge the gap between OC Transpo passes and the types of fare payments that are accepted on Para Transpo. GET A CARD

One of the main lessons learned over the past year was to avoid a big release of Presto cards all at once, Manconi said. “A staged and measured release is key,” he said, but the number 1 objective is still to get the card into people’s hands and get them using it. Cards will be available in a number of ways. During the test period, demand for cards was highest through the website,, and that’s the first spot most riders will be able to get one on May 18. Starting May 27, riders will be able to pick up a card at city client service centres, OC Transpo sales and information centres, as well as Transitway stations on a rotating schedules. Select library branches across the city will also begin distributing the cards starting June 3. OC Transpo will have Presto outreach targeted at park-andride pass holders on May 17 and 18. Other selected groups, including seniors, community pass holders and certain community organizations and


After a year of delays, transit commissioners agreed to support the full launch of the Presto smart card payment system for OC Transpo. The remaining 184,000 complimentary cards will be available starting May 18. They’ll go into use July 1.

health centres will also be the focus of OC Transpo’s efforts to distribute Presto cards over the summer. Ecopass holders will be able to get a Presto card as their annual passes expire between August and October.

The overall cost to adopt the Presto system in Ottawa has gone up to $34.2 million, but the city will only pay $31.2 million – the rest will be covered by Metrolinx. The provincial agency had already committed to reimbursing the city for around $3 million to cover the cost of delays and lost revenue due to the delays. Metrolinx has now agreed to cover another $1.5 million in costs. It’s important to remember that saving money isn’t the intent of moving to a smartcard payment system, Manconi said. The idea is to provide better service that attracts more riders, he said.

Beginning in May, Ottawa will welcome 18 new and exciting food choices to the city's streets. Following on the City’s commitment to promote small business opportunities in the local community, these new trucks and carts will increase street food vendor options for residents and tourists alike.

EMC news - The third time was the charm for Ottawa’s new kennel rules, which are aimed at preventing puppy mills. The proposed bylaw was delayed twice late last year after public outcry that centered on how the new rules would impact people who own dogs for recreational purposes such as dogsledding. West Carleton-March Coun. Eli ElChantiry originally asked for it to be delayed in October, when almost 200 people packed the Greely Community Centre and more than 20 people spoke to tell councillors about all the problems with the policy as it was proposed. For one thing, the city would be asking many rural dog owners to fly under the radar if it passes new kennel and breeding rules, Kinburn resident Tim Pychyl told councillors during that meeting on Oct. 4. Pychyl, who owns eight sled dogs, pleaded with the committee to include people like him – recreational pet owners who have more than three dogs. Based on that feedback, staff included a new recreational kennel category in the new proposal, which would cover homes where dogs are raised for non-commercial recreational purposes. The category has a limit of 10 dogs over the age of 20 weeks (this category only applies to dogs), unless they are housed in a building separate from the home. License holders can also keep up to three dogs that have retired from their recreational use and one rescued dog. Pychyl said the addition “has really done the job of creating the space we need to ethically own and race dogs.” Joan Colbourn, past president of the Ottawa Kennel Club, said the addition of the recreation category was a “wonderful way” to solve the problems dog owners identified in the previous versions of the bylaw. “At the first meeting, it seemed like the city had no idea … They seemed to think if you had dogs, you were a kennel and breeding operation,” Colbourn said. Still, many dog owners and breeders will continue to fly under the radar even though they should be licensed, said the kennel club’s current president, Carol Broadhurst. “It would be wonderful if everyone applied … but not everyone will apply. That’s the problem,” she said, adding there is a lot of leeway there for the “good” breeders to comply. The second category would put a limit of three dogs and five cats in place for the in-home breeding kennel category. But after the public called for it, staff added a clause to allow up to three retired dogs or five retired cats to be kept as pets, or a rescued dog or cat to be kept temporarily. Those limits are intended to reduce the potential for noise caused by a large number of cats or dogs in a residential setting, but the limits wouldn’t apply to in-home breeding kennels that house animals primarily in an outbuilding. The in-home breeding category include basic requirements such as clean conditions and veterinary care when necessary, but it also includes limits on breeding, selling and transferring animals. City staff also removed a clause of the in-home breeding kennel that would have


After months of delay and controversy, the city has finally drafted rules for home-based breeders and kennels that please animal owners. required breeders to be a member in good standing of a bona fide dog or cat registry such as the Canadian Kennel Club or the Canadian Cat Association. That’s in recognition of breeders who focus on mixed “designer” breeds rather than purebreeds. “We’re not in the business of passing judgment on whether animals should be true bred or not,” said Christine Hartig, the city project officer for the new rules. Ron Holowka, a resident who came to address the committee on April 4, asked councillors to consider making the rules apply to pet shops as well. But Hartig said pet shops fall under different legislation because they handle animals in a different way. Shops usually don’t breed animals themselves, and they house the animals temporarily until they are sold – not for long periods of time, like a breeding kennel. A city staff review found that most pet shops in Ottawa are actually selling animals from shelters and the Ottawa Human

Society – not private breeders, Hartig said. The third category would apply to boarding kennels, which would require a $100 license. Boarding operations would be required to comply with zoning, have the proper insurance, keep health records for each animal, employ trained staff and to maintain cleanliness and proper conditions such as temperature, food and water. Some existing license holders will be grandfathered and allowed to have more animals until 2018. Under the previous rules staff drafted in October, there were only two categories: in-home breeding license, which would apply to people who have more than three dogs or five cats for breeding or showing and a separate licence proposed for commercial kennels or boarding operations. Enforcement of the kennel bylaw would be based on health and safety and only done when absolutely necessary, city staff said. Those fines can be appealed.

Hydro Ottawa is increasing the supply of clean energy, bringing innovative solutions to energyconscious consumers and businesses, and taking steps to green its own operations. In recognition of these efforts, Hydro Ottawa was distinguished as one of Canada’s Greenest Employers for the third consecutive year. Hydro Ottawa is the largest municipally-owned producer of green power in Ontario. Its renewable energy facilities include hydroelectric generators at Chaudière Falls and landfill gas-to-energy generators at the Trail Road and Laflèche Landfills. Together these facilities help to reduce greenhouse gases by almost 200,000 metric tons of CO2 per year.

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories


When that job was finished, I next arranged the flowers into little piles, with my very favourites on top, and my least favourite ones on the bottom. I was especially fond of the pictures of the roses. The red ones. And there were pink and yellow ones too, but the bloodred ones, I thought were very special. Mother never ordered roses, which was a big disappointment to me, but she said the ground out at Northcote wasn’t good enough for rose bushes. My sister Audrey said it had more to do with the hard work involved in looking after rose bushes than it had to do with the soil. Even when I told Audrey I would be glad to look after them, she said we would never see rose bushes on the farm at Northcote and to put the idea out of my mind! And so I had to content myself with pictures cut out of the Steele-Briggs seed catalogue. I was at the stage in my life when I loved to draw. And so I drew little gardens on each page of the big scribbler with the rough pages and the shiny black cover. I coloured the pages with my crayons, and I thought I had done a good enough job to even take the finished book to show Miss Crosby at the Northcote School. Again, my sister

Audrey advised me to keep it at home, since it may cause bad Marguirite to go into a fit of jealousy, and goodness knows what that could mean! There was no money for anything fancy like a little bottle of mucilage. Mother did something magically with boiled water and flour, and we used that to stick paper-to-paper and it worked perfectly well. And so I would begin to create my very own catalogue. The roses went onto a page first. The red ones. Another page of drawings, and then the pink roses, and finally, the yellow ones. By the time I had worked through all the little piles of cut-out flowers and pasted them into the scribbler, each separated by a crayon-coloured drawing, the scribbler was so fat, it was impossible to keep it closed. But if nothing else, those scribblers were a bargain. There were still plenty of empty pages left for the pictures of my favourite vegetables. I was never that fond of turnips or cabbages, but blood-red tomatoes and green cucumbers, yellow beans, and radishes, all had their own pages in my ‘seed catalogue’. My brother Emerson, who was a far better artist that I was, and never let me forget it, laughed at my attempt at draw-

ing gardens in my scribbler. But Mother said my pictures reminded her of the big calendar we got from Scott’s Hardware that year which was a country scene taken by a real camera. And that was good enough for me! When finally, the little wood boxes of earth scattered all over the house started to sprout, and finally grow a few inches, my interest was renewed. I again looked every day to see their growth, even though my sister Audrey reminded me “a watched pot never boils,” which I finallly realized had nothing to do with a pot on the stove. I kept my handmade seed catalogue under my bed for the weeks it took for the wood boxes to produce enough growth to move the plants to the garden and the flower beds. Every so often I would take it out, swelled as it was to three times its size, and leaf through it, anxious for the day I could take it out to the garden. Because when you could finally tell which plants would be carrots, and which would be cucumbers, and which flower bed would produce asters or cosmos, I would spend many a happy hour outside with my catalogue, matching my cut-out pictures to what was taking new life in the ground back in those depression years when we were expected to amuse ourselves without benefit. It was a simple way of spending many happy hours free of costly toys. Like making rag dolls, whittling, carving slingshots, boiling weeds to make coloured water, and building sand castles on the banks of the Bonnechere River, the price was just right.


Find easy ways to go green and reduce your electricity consumption at conservation.


Ottawa residents and businesses have saved more than 500 million kilowatt-hours over the past six years through participating in Hydro Ottawa’s energy conservation programs. That’s the equivalent of taking more than 52,000 homes off the grid for a year.


he Steele-Briggs seed catalogue was now mine. Mother’s order had long since arrived. It came when the snow was deep around the house, and the sprigs of vegetables poking through the ground in the garden were still a long way off. All over the house, for weeks, Mother had been urging little flat wood boxes of earth to show signs of life. These boxes emerged every year, filled with earth by Father, and until it was time to plant the sprouts out in the garden, they sat on benches and chairs, watched and watered by Mother. The window sills were too narrow to hold the boxes, and so finding a place to sit in the kitchen was often a challenge this time of year. When Mother first planted the seeds that would have arrived in the mail COD, I was wild with excitement. I checked every day to see if anything had sprung up, but after days and days of constant vigilance, I lost interest, and instead concentrated on the seed catalogues, for which I had great plans. Using one of the rough-lined scribblers Mother had bought from Ritz’s Drug Store in Renfrew on the One-Cent-Sale, I re-created my very own seed catalogue. When I was finished, it didn’t at all look like the Steele-Briggs one that came in wintertime. The first thing I did was cut out all the pictures in the catalogue that were in colour. This job alone could wile away many hours at the kitchen table in the evening. Then I sorted the pictures in two piles ... one for vegetables and one for flowers. R0011367325 R0011367325

“It is our responsibility not only to provide electricity, but also to help people use our product efficiently – which saves money on their bills, and helps protect the environment,” said Bryce Conrad, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hydro Ottawa. “I’m proud to say that Ottawa has embraced our challenge to conserve, and together we are making a significant difference.”

EMC news - A new four-piece mural at Carson Grove Public School shows what staff and students have known all along - this school is filled with community spirit. The mural project, displayed on the school library’s four walls, depict the four seasons and each measure one by two and a half metres. The project wasn’t easy to create in an open-concept school, said principal Irene Cameron. There aren’t very many walls to start with and what little walls that are left, are used as shelving or to display work. But Cameron said she felt it was important for the students of her school to work on something together, as a team and to have something that the entire student body, staff and parents could be proud of. “Every single one of the students had a part in this mural and that’s what makes the murals very special,” Cameron said. The colourful images show students, playing, reading and hanging out. All 310 students had their hand in the project, which began in September with students taking photographs outside, in the schoolyard. “It’s taken a full seven months and the results are simply amazing,” Cameron said. “These four colourful panels feature the many talents and abilities of our students. I hope that everyone who views the mural feels the warmth and recognizes that everyone is safe, welcome and respected at our school.” Those photos were turned into a stencil which was projected onto the large boards and traced, including a drawing from one of the kindergarten classes of a snowman for the winter season board. The project, Cameron said, would

not have been possible without the efforts of local artist, Anna Stella Mangone. Mangone worked with all the children, from concept to paintbrush. “From choosing colours to styles, it was all up to the kids,” Mangone said. The students, staff, Mangone and Cameron celebrated the completion of the project on April 25 with cake and a slideshow of the process created by Mangone. Mangone has worked with students at other schools and said it’s important to let students own their projects and to make all the decisions. “When they understand they can be liberal with the project, they become more creative,” Mangone said. For this project, Mangone worked with small groups of students, teaching them various techniques and concepts along the way. “She is more of a coordinator than the artist, she lets the students create, it’s wonderful,” Cameron said. The school received additional support from home renovation stores Lowe’s and Home Depot, which supplied paint supplies and wood for the murals; the school’s custodians painted the walls surrounding the murals. Funding, including paying for Mangone’s services, was offered through MASC, a local artist program. “Without the funding this project could only have been a dream,” Cameron said. Mangone said she is really pleased with the project and credits the children’s hard work and dedication for its success. “This was the children’s creative endeavor,” Cameron said. “I’m really happy with it, it’s really multicultural, like the students in this school and I love that these children now have something on their walls that they can relate to and know they made.”

Retired professor’s new novel explores identity Author explores the topic of face transplants in his first published book Michelle Nash

EMC entertainment - If you were offered a face transplant, would you take it? If you were so disfigured, that you could not go outside, or eat, or smell or speak properly, would you opt for a new face, to experience a normal life again? These are the questions Gerald Neufeld explores in his first book, Transplant, a novel about face transplants. “What would you do if you lost your face and were offered a new one, would you take it?” Neufeld asked. “I can’t imagine why not, and that is why I wrote this book.” The novel introduces readers to a young Ottawa woman who one day loses an entire portion of her face in a vehicle accident. Forced to live in the shadows, unable to breath, eat, smell or speak the way she once had, this young character watches as the life she once knew drifts away until one day she is offered a second chance in the form of a new face. The novel looks at the emotions of living without a face, and dealing with a new identity. “My objective was to raise the

question about whether or not it would be a good thing to get a face transplant,” Neufeld said. His book is based on five years of research on face transplants, including interviews with surgeons and two recipients. Although the novel is a work of fiction, Neufeld said it was important to have a strong setting of reality. “I always wondered if recipients would have identity problems,” he said. “With fiction you can get people to identify with characters and address social issues without beating them over the head with it.” Readers have the opportunity to understand the medical world of transplant surgery through Neufeld’s character. The Lowertown author is a retired University of Ottawa psychology and linguistics professor and has been blind since birth, Neufeld said he has always lived life without one of the major senses, accommodating this limitation by making the most of his other senses. A self-described man of science, Neufeld said his interest in the procedure and the range of emotion it could potentially unleash upon a recipient intrigued

Video games can make you a better parent EMC news - Most people think video games are just entertainment – a way to pass time and escape from the real world. But for parents, gaming can be more than that. Here are three things you can do right now to turn video games from a fun hobby into an opportunity for quality, engaged parenting: • Play with your kids. This is not specific to video games, but video games provide the opportunity to share an interest with your child. By playing twoplayer co-operative games you can discuss strategies with your child, or share in a victory over the other team. By playing games together, you’re learning how to communicate better with your child, and you’re learning how to work together to solve problems. • Talk about the game. Don’t just sit and play to-

gether. Discuss the problems in the game, and the game’s heroes and villains. How does your child feel about how their character is being treated by the bad guys? How does it feel to solve problems? Exploring the themes of the game can give you insight into similar problems your child might be facing at school or with friends. Or, if your child is artistic or musical, ask them what they think about the landscape and scenery in a game, or what level has the best music – it will help you learn more about their interests, or discover a hidden talent. Skills for successful gaming – setting goals, practicing tasks, and executing plans – are valuable in everyday life as well.

him. So the curious author began to research the subject. Of the years of research he conducted, Neufeld said he discovered interesting facts. “What I found was what no one did was look at the downside of a face transplant,” he said. “If you receive this kind of surgery, for the rest of your life you must take a cocktail of drugs so your body will not reject the foreign skin and muscles.” According to Neufeld, the cocktail has been found to be cancer-causing and ultimately shortens a recipient’s life. He said it was important to share all the aspects of the topic to his readers. “Everyone sensualizes the procedure, I looked at what happens after.” For a sneak peak at the novel or to purchase a copy, readers are invited to Neufeld’s website at

Gathering a learning opportunity for youth, elders Jessica Cunha

EMC news - Aboriginal youth and elders came together to share their knowledge and to learn about each other on,April 6. The all day gathering was a chance for youth to gather insights about their heritage and traditions, while also imparting their own wisdom to the elders. “We’re so excited to learn what they are up to,” said Métis Nation of Ontario Senator Reta Gordon, who grew up in Ottawa. “The youth to the elders are like our grandchildren.” She said one thing she’s learned from young aboriginals – which include First Nation, Métis and Inuit – is “how lucky they are. They are so much luckier than their elders because they knew from day one who they were. They had pride of nationhood.” Growing up, Gordon said her generation and those before her had to hide their nationality as a means of survival. “Our generation and our parents generation, they hid who they were because of the times,” she said. But now, it’s something to be embraced.

“Years ago it was a shame to be aboriginal,” said Gordon, who lives in Centretown. “Now it’s pride in who you are.” Her biggest piece of wisdom for today’s youth is to track their ancestry – Gordon can trace hers back to the 1700s. “Get on the computer and get the documentation because it is there,” she said. “Then you know where you belong ... Knowing and having documentation are two different things.”

long gathering at the Richelieu Vanier Community Centre, put together by Wendy Lanouette and Wendy Dehler. “The youth want to learn from the elders,” said Lanouette, who grew up in Chippewas of Nawash near Geor-


gian Bay. “They learn the traditional teachings ... the reasons we have certain traditions we follow.” Many youth grow up in cities without a connection to their heritage. “Some of them have never expe-

rienced that,” said Lanouette. “They know they’re aboriginal but they don’t know what that means.” The day included medicine wheel teachings, live entertainment and presentations and reflections.






Eighteen-year-old Sage Picody was part of the ceremonial drum circle at the gathering. He has been training for 10 years on the drums and grew up on the northern Ontario reserve Mattagami First Nations. He said he plays the drums to create unity. “It brings people together,” said Picody, who lives in Vanier. “(It’s also) medicine; it makes people feel good inside. It brings happiness.” Having a chance to listen to his elders gives him “more of an understanding,” he said. “You get to hear how they lived in the past ... what the differences are.” Around 45 people attended the day-

Fabricland is celebrating their 45th anniversary Fabricland: Where the Smart Money Goes to Sew Up the Savings By Brian Turner As Fabricland prepares to celebrate its 45th anniversary, their team looks back at a world of changes in clothing creation, home décor, and crafting, but what has remained constant since their first small store opened in Toronto in 1968 is the commitment to deliver exceptional product lines at the lowest price with superior customer service. Now among 170 locations from coast to coast, the Ottawa area outlets are stocking up to bring some fantastic birthday deals to those who know how to stretch their buying power to the max while having fun and showing their creative side at the same time. While other big fabric retailers and department stores have downsized or eliminated the options for their customers in terms of filling creative fashion needs or providing substantial savings on home decorating supplies, Fabricland remains dedicated to their growing family of smart shoppers. What Fabricland learned many years ago is nothing replaces customer service and advice from experienced consultants when it comes to welcoming first-time sewers and crafters as well as keeping fabric experts supplied with all their needs. That’s why every store is staffed with friendly knowledgeable folk who are happy to lend a hand, an ear and even a thimble to get the job done.

Fabricland continues to grow and evolve to not only meet their customers’ expectations but to exceed them. When home décor demands came from shoppers with little or no sewing experience, Fabricland premiered their ‘no-sew, ready-to-go’ home product line with ready-to-hang drapery panels, white bedding, an extensive line of drapery hardware, table linens such as placemats and runners, as well as a huge selection of decorative home accessories and much, much more... all of excellent quality and value. They called it the ‘Home Dec Centre’ and all of the Metro Ottawa stores have one. For those who like to craft their own decor, Fabricland has it all by the meter and bins of hardware. Quilters haven’t been left out in the cold either. Fabricland has the largest selection of materials, batting, backing, and threads for quilts to warm up the coldest winter night. For those looking to recycle some older clothing with spark, it’s all bling, buttons and beads at 50% off during the anniversary sale. When it comes to convenient locations, Fabricland has that sewn up as well. The Kanata store is at 471 Hazeldean Road (near Castlefrank), in Nepean it’s 1460 Merivale Road (between Clyde and Baseline), in Ottawa south at 1440 Walkley Road (near Albion North), in Ottawa East it’s in the Shopper’s City East Plaza at 2016 Ogilvie, and in Orleans you can find the savings at 2384 St. Joseph Blvd (just east of Orleans Blvd.).

Algonquin grad places second in world sommelier competition Jennifer McIntosh Jennifer McIntosh/Metroland

EMC news - VĂŠronique Rivest, took second place in a worldwide sommelier competition on March 29. She was the ďŹ rst women to make it to the podium at the competition. Algonquin grad uncorked second place at world sommelier competition Jennifer McIntosh EMC news - VĂŠronique Rivest has a lot to toast. The graduate of Algonquin Collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sommelier program placed second in a worldwide competition hosted by the International Sommelier Association.

The competition â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which ended on March 29 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was held in Tokyo. Rivest described the event as a kind of wine tasting Olympics. She had to qualify at the national level in order to compete. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I also won for the Americas in the continental competition so Canada was able to send two representatives to worlds,â&#x20AC;? Rivest said. Rivest was to be the toast of the college on April 10, as well-wishers gathered for a fundraising dinner to help defray the costs of her international travel. The competition paid for her three-days-stay during the event, but Rivest went to Japan a week early so she could be at the top of her game.

She said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much more than simple wine tasting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to know about foods that pair with wines, the laws governing alcohol in a bunch of different regions, the geology and the strains of grapes... There is a lot to keep on top of,â&#x20AC;? Rivest said, adding she cut back her hours at work to study and travel in an effort to be named the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top sommelier. Rivest said without the support of her husband and Algonquin College she wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have been able to do it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone has been really supportive,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been great.â&#x20AC;? The world sommelier competition happens every three years in a different lo-

cation; Rivest said she hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet decided if she will compete again. She said she likes teaching â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will have to think about it; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something about ending on a high note,â&#x20AC;? Rivest said. As for the wine world, Rivest said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an exciting time to be a sommelier in Canada, because it is one of the only markets where wine consumption is growing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a lot of great wines out of Prince Edward County,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just love exploring and learning new things.â&#x20AC;? Rivest is a two-time winner of the Best Sommelier of Canada. She placed 12th in the Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Best Sommelier competition in Chile in 2010.

Nuit Blanche Ottawa is looking for local artists Michelle Nash

EMC entertainment - Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talent with a paint brush, a camera or a ďŹ&#x201A;air for performance art, Nuit Blanche is looking for artists to take part in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fall event. Nuit Blanche Ottawa + Gatineau is putting the word out to all local French and English artists to send in their applications to participate in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s night-long event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For us the goal of Nuit Blanche is for people to go outside and see art differently, whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the side of buildings or in galleries,â&#x20AC;? said Ariane Nazroo, art director for the festival. The call for artists will begin at the end of April, with those interested in applying directed to do so at The application period will last for six weeks. In the fall of 2012, Nuit Blanche Ottawa took place for the ďŹ rst time in the capital, as a one night-only affair based on similar events in Toronto and Montreal. The funding and organization was provided by BRAVOEst, which received a grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation. Taking place in the Byward Market and Westboro, visitors had the opportunity to observe local art in all its forms from 6 p.m. to 4 a.m. Nazroo said the inaugural event was a success from both a resident and organization perspective, but BRAVO declined to continue participating in the event, choosing instead

Described as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;yarn-bombing a busâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, the work of art took five months to prepare for and served as one of the centerpeices of the first-ever Nuit Blanche Ottawa. to focus on French-related programming. Not to be discouraged Nazroo and Megan Smith, a curator for Nuit Blanche 2012, decided to take over the reigns. The two have incorporated Nuit Blanche and set up a board of directors, but have yet to identify a source of funding. A number of

grants applied for and while they wait on word for funding, the pair have decided to donated their time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to make sure it would happen again this year,â&#x20AC;? Nazroo said. The group will work with both cities and local organizations, including reaching out to local businesses for

sponsorship opportunities. The inaugural event featured 160 projects in two areas of the city that were viewed by a total of 30,000 people. There were multiple familyfriendly events, gallery showings and performance art to visit and observe and this year, the organizers say the intention is to bring back all the suc-

cess of last year and to expand the festival to include sites in Gatineau. The art director presented preliminary plans to the Lowertown Community Association on April 8. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really a community-based event,â&#x20AC;? Nazroo said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why I wanted to meet with you guys.â&#x20AC;? Residents who attended the meeting were pleased with the news the event would be taking place again this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remember how important and terriďŹ c last year, the ďŹ rst year, was,â&#x20AC;? said Norman Moyer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The feeling was wonderful and it was such a family event.â&#x20AC;? Nazroo said having a familyfriendly event is again a priority, with a kid zone to be placed in Westboro, with those events ending at around 1 a.m. The Byward Market and downtown Gatineau would host adult-oriented events coming to an end at 4 a.m. Shuttles would move people to and from the different artist zones. Last year the shuttles were provided by 417 Bus line, but this year the goal is to partner with OC Transpo and STO to ensure more people can ride the shuttles more frequently. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to have three major shuttle stops and more shuttles to move people around the downtown more quickly,â&#x20AC;? Nazroo said. The Lowertown association said they would love to stay involved in the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planning process and looked forward to working with Nazroo and Smith.

Haiti fundraiser to help rural communities in need Michelle Nash

EMC news - Three years since an earthquake shook Haiti, communities are still trying to rebuild, find shelter and have clean drinking water readily available. One Ottawa-Haiti charity is hoping a fundraiser in the city’s downtown will make a big difference in helping those communities prosper. In January 2010, a 7.0 multitude earthquake hit near the town of Léogâne, Haiti, leaving nearly 316,000 people dead and 1.6 million people homeless. In an effort to help rebuild the country, the Marco Depestre Foundation of Ottawa is hosting a charity night of fun, music and dance at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church on April 27. “The fundraiser is to help finance projects in rural parts of Haiti,” said Yvette Depestre, the president of the Ottawa chapter. Depestre and her brother, Marco Depestre, a Haitian resident started the Marco Depestre Foundation in both Haiti and Ottawa in 2006, naming the foundation after their father,

who they said always worked hard to help people in his country. The fundraiser is aimed to raise money to help fund current and new projects the foundation supports. Depestre said the foundation does not simply give handouts, it most importantly offers residents of these rural Haitian communities education so they can help themselves. “The projects are about the families learning how to do something for themselves, and then passing on that knowledge to other families in the neighbourhood,” she said. The communities the foundation focused on from the start were the rural ones, as both Depestre and her brother said, access to some areas in south-eastern Haiti are next to impossible to travel to in a car, and the journey can take days on foot or donkey, with amenities for the area few and far between.

added. “People were forgotten, and we need to help,” she said. “We are hoping to raise as much as possible so we can continue to help those in need.” Depestre’s brother Marco, a reverend in Port-au-Prince was driving home when the earthquake hit. “You wonder how 30 seconds can completely turn your world around; you wonder if it really happened, or if it was a dream,” Marco said. MAKE A DIFFERENCE



The foundation worked at bringing the residents of these communities the tools to build and thrive on their own. When it comes to the recent earthquake and the devastation it left, Depestre said the needs of these rural communities grew, and in some areas still remain desperate. “Years ago, here in Ottawa there

People lost a lot, but they were able to rebuild because they had insurance and in Haiti, after the earth-

Pet Adoptions KING




King is a big boy! This one and a half year old, neuteured male, Mastiff was surrendered to the OHS on is looking for his forever home! King loves to be socialized and would benefit from an owner who is eager to bring him around different people and to different places in order to become more confident! King has good house training skills but will need to be taken out frequently to know what’s expected of him! This big lovable

guy previously lived with a cat, and was very respectful of his feline friend! His new family will need to make sure he gets adequate physical exercise and mental stimulation. A tired dog, is a good dog after all! King is a “Foster-Me-First” adoption because he’s on medication for an ear infection and will need to see the vet again. Ozzy is a beautiful, one-year-old, neutered male, white domestic shorthair, blue-eyed

cat who loves to show you his moves when playing with string toys or chasing things. He was surrendered to the shelter by his owner on January 8, and is now available for adoption. He has an athletic, runners build, and fast reflexes and will need an owner who can handle a rough player! Ozzy would prefer to live in an adult-only home, and be the only feline as he is known to give love nips. We are unsure, but think that Ozzy may also be deaf, so he should not be let outside without a leash or safe enclosure, despite his strong desire to see what’s on the other side of any door. Looking for a cat with an adventurous, fearless spirit? This trained to walk on-leash cat would love to meet you! To learn more about King or Ozzy, or for more information on all of our animals, contact the Ottawa Humane Society at 613-725-3166 ext 258 or visit us at our new location, 245 West Hunt Club Rd.

Should you adopt a pet if you have allergies? Don’t assume that because you’re sniffling and sneezing, a pet is the cause. Many household particles, such as dust and mould, can cause allergic reactions. Make sure to see an allergist for testing. Animal allergies are caused by glands in the animal’s skin secreting tiny allergy-triggering proteins, called allergens. Allergens are present in flakes of dry skin (dander) and the animal’s saliva and urine. The allergens may circulate in the air after saliva dries on the animal’s fur. For people who are allergic to animals, most animals, and all cats and dogs, are allergenic (or, allergy-causing). Cats and rabbits tend to be more allergenic than dogs for allergic people, although some people are more sensitive to dogs than cats. Contrary to popular belief, there are no “non-allergenic” breeds of dogs or cats; even hairless breeds may be highly allergenic. There are some breeds of cats and dogs that are considered hypoallergenic, which means they are generally less allergy-causing than other breeds. However, even among breeds, one dog or cat may be more irritating to an individual allergy sufferer than another animal of that same breed.

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

Time to make a grooming appointment


A combination of approaches — medical control of symptoms, good housecleaning methods and immunotherapy — is most likely to succeed in allowing an allergic person to live with pets. If you do not currently have a pet and are considering one, and know you, or a family member, are pet-allergic, be sure to consider carefully whether you can live with the allergy before you bring a new pet home. Pet allergies can range from very mild to very serious. Too many allergic people obtain pets without thinking through the challenges of living with them. Too often, owners end up relinquishing pets — a decision that is difficult and can be traumatic for the pet. If you have allergies and have decided to live with an animal, it is important to find an allergist who understands your commitment to living with your pet. Also, find out just how severe your allergy is. You can begin to determine how allergic you are to animals by spending time with friends who have pets. Trying to cope with allergies to your pet? You’re not alone. Many people suffering from animal allergies choose to share their lives with a pet.

quake, there was nothing and people have still not been able to rebuild.” In some cases the barriers are as simple as a lack of access to roads and insurance, making picking up the pieces much more difficult, she

Marco was visiting his sister last week and wanted to encourage as many Ottawa residents as possible to come out to the fundraiser and help make a difference. “Really it’s the next day, and the days after that, where you see the destruction, it shakes you to your heart,” Marco said. “By coming out to the fundraiser, you are supporting some useful work for many Haitian communities, all while enjoying some great music.” The fundraiser will feature a performance from Rev. Ernie Cox and the London Trio Plus. Tickets for the concert are $15 for adults. Children 15 years-old and younger are admitted free. Tickets are available in advance by contacting Depestre at 613-830-4714 or at the door.

Farmers gather to protest release of GM alfalfa Jennifer McIntosh

EMC news - The release of genetically-modified alfalfa could be the last straw for a dwindling bee population, said bee keeper Susan Hamilton. Hamilton, along with four dozen farmers from across Ottawa and the valley came out to protest the potential release of herbicide tolerant alfalfa at the Canadian Food Inspection Agency headquarters in Nepean on April 9. “We have had bees since 1973 and the population is dwindling already,” Hamilton said. “This will eventually kill them off.” Hamilton added that pollinating the alfalfa genetically modified to include the herbicide Roundup could hurt and eventually kill bees. Forage Genetics International has applied Monsanto’s Roundup Ready technology to alfalfa and Canada already approved it for health and environmental release in 2005. Variety registration with the

agency is the last step before it can become commercially available. Demonstrators with the National Farmers Union and the Canadian Biotechnology Action Network hoped to halt the process by letting the powers that be know how they and consumers feel.

This will eventually kill them off Susan Hamilton

Alfalfa is a high-protein feed for dairy cows, beef cattle, lambs, poultry and pigs, but because labelling for genetically modified crops is not mandatory in Canada, it’s unlikely consumers will know they are eating altered crops. Lucy Sharratt, a co-ordinator with the action network, said 38 communities across the country organized demonstrations in a four-week pe-

riod. “Seventeen communities in eastern Ontario were holding demonstrations today,” she said, adding eastern Canada is where the genetically-modified alfalfa would be rolled out first. Lauretta Rice, whose son runs a dairy farm in Douglas, Ont., went to the protest because she said the introduction of the Monsanto technology would kill off the more than 200 varieties of the plant that her son produces locally. Alfalfa is a perennial plant that is pollinated. The introduction of a genetically-modified strain will cross-pollinate with organic forms and threaten the livelihood of local farmers, she said. The Canadian Forage and Grassland Association released a report the potential impact of Roundup Ready alfalfa on Canada’s forage industry in June 2012. “The introduction of RRA, and subsequent GE See GRAIN on page 37

(genetically-engineered) alfalfa traits, into Canada could have a negative impact on certain export seed, forage, honey and the entire organic industry,” the report reads. “RRA would give forage producers a new and effective weed control system. Successful introduction would also encourage biotechnology companies to continue developing other GE alfalfa traits adapted to the Canadian market.” But the Grain Growers of Canada, an association that represents 50,000 farmer members, issued a press release the same day of the protest, saying they support technologies that enable Canadians to farm sustainably. We support Canada’s robust sciencebased regulatory environment which ensures any new crops or traits are proven safe for human consumption, animal feed and our environment,” Stephen Vandervalk, president of the Grain Growers of Canada Jennifer McIntosh/Metroland said in the release.

Save Canadian Forces Base Orléans By moving the RCMP to Barrhaven, the Federal Government took about 1,800 direct jobs from Orléans residents. Next, they propose moving the National Defence Headquarters from to downtown to the former Nortel building off Carling - effectively cutting off our access to the 10,000 jobs now located only a short bus ride away. Presently, there are about 4,600 CF service members and DND public servants living in Orléans. Using the city’s private sector jobs multiplier, Orléans stands to loose about 15,000 jobs after all the moves are done. It is for this reason I’ve taken positive action to address this pressing situation. On April 8th, I submitted a formal complaint to Graham Fraser, the Official Languages Commissioner. Orléans is the poster child of bilingual communities in Canada. French and English joined together to build a great community where we live and work in harmony, and where we respect and embrace each other. The Official Languages Act is clear. The Government of Canada is committed to, “enhancing the vitality and supporting the development of English and French linguistic minority communities, as an integral part of the two official language communities of Canada, and to fostered full recognition and use of English and French in Canadian society.” Any act to the contrary would be a violation of the law. Every federal institution is obligated by the Act to ensure that positive measures are taken to protect, and not harm, communities like ours. Orléans’ francophone minority community of 35,000 is the largest such community in all of Ontario. If we do not protect Orléans, we set a negative precedent for all official language minority communities in Canada.

I ask all of our residents to join me in forcing the Federal Government to respect the laws of this great country. Phil McNeely, MPP



This decision, taken without consultation with our residents or the City of Ottawa, breaks the law and will destroy Orléans as we know it now.
