Diversity provides more learning opportunties Brier Dodge

EMC news - In the early ‘90s, Sir Wilfrid Laurier students looked awfully alike. The school included predominantly Caucasian students, with few from other countries. Now, principal Ruggles Prichard said, “It’s a totally different circumstance. We’re as differently coloured as you can imagine.” Today the majority of the student population is non-Caucasian, said International Food Festival organizer and Grade 12 student Anita Mahava. It means that the festival, started in the early 90s following the death of elected student council co-president Delanor Channer to fund an annual bursary awarded in his name, has evolved along with the school. blending students

But the school has managed to blend cultures together in a surprisingly comprehensive way, and celebrates them at the annual event. While the May 9 event was called a food festival, it also featured music, dancing and a fashion show, showing off styles from Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and more. The event had ethnic foods from a variety of countries and tap, Indian Persian, Caribbean and belly-dancing. See DIVERSITY, page 3

The Guinness World Records team once again set the record for most money raised at the Cairine Wilson Secondary School Relay for Life on May 3 at the Navan Fairgrounds. The team had the top fundraising tally for the third year in a row, bringing in $5,180. The team raised money through pledges, a car wash, bake sale and bottle drive.

EMC news - Cairine Wilson Secondary School held their Relay for Life event at the Navan Fairgrounds on May 3 and the Relay for Life event on June 14 has planning well underway. This June the Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life in Orléans will celebrate its 10th anniversary with A Walk Down Memory Lane. On June 14 Millennium Park in Orléans will be transformed into a site of celebration and remembrance as teams from across the east end come together to walk around the

track all night long. Relay For Life is a 12hour, overnight, non-competitive event that involves teams of 10 people who take turns walking or running around a track. Teams include families, friends, corporations and communities and they can still register. Cancer survivors and those seeking the opportunity to volunteer for the day of the event are also encouraged to participate and can register online. Events are also happening in downtown, Kanata,

and various high schools and universities across the city to welcome all members of the Ottawa community. Bringing together over 5,000 participants, 500 volunteers, and sponsors from all corners of Ottawa, Relay For Life has a proud tradition of raising over $1 million in the fight against cancer. The relay brings people together to celebrate cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost to cancer and fight back against the terrible disease. Funds raised through Relay For Life make a difference

and help the Canadian Cancer Society to: • fund life-saving cancer research. • offer information on all types of cancer. • provide support programs to people living with cancer, their families and friends. • advocate for public policies that help prevent cancer and assist those living with it. For more information, call Relay for Life organizers at 613-668-7241 or or Facebook at www.facebook. com/RelayForLifeOttawa.

Company of Fools perform a different kind of play Michelle Nash

Connors, the group’s artistic director. “The Fools have always explored unique ways of creating and performing work and this provocative piece fits with our style as it is an interactive, playful, and thoughtprovoking piece of theatre.” Each performance will be like its first, as a different actor reads the script cold at each performance. The actors are not allowed to watch any of the other performances. Catriona Leger will be performing on May 15. “Leading up to my performance, I’m thinking ‘What I am I going to do?’” Leger said. “There are a lot of things going through your mind when

EMC news - A new play performed by the Company of Fools is aimed to challenge its actors and entice audiences. The group is performing White Rabbit Red Rabbit -- a play outside of Shakespeare’s repertoire which is the troupe’s stock-in-trade -- at the Arts Court Library until May 25. Leading up to the three-week performance, the cast had not rehearsed, had no direction and does not know the script until they first take the stage in front of an audience. “We are excited about this unique opportunity,” said Al

you will be reading something cold, as an actor there is an element of excitement and terror and the rest is left to the gods.” She added that it can also be really exciting. “The door is wide open, you are coming in with no pre-defined ideas and you are in that moment, in that space.” Leger said she hopes the audience will continue to come back to see actor after actor perform. “We have a mix of actors of all different ages,” she said. “There is an opportunity to see 18 completely different shows, all speaking the same text.”

Before and after each show, there is the opportunity for the audience to mingle with the actor and potentially other members of the theatre group. Written by Nassim Soleimanpour, the play explores travel in a different way - to explore a world from the perspective of an individual forbidden to travel. Soleimanpour wrote the play to travel

the world when he couldn’t. The play asks the audience to participate and listen. “We expect some of our fans will be surprised. Although this isn’t our first departure from Shakespeare, they are so few and far between that it feels like a first,” Connors said. The play runs from May 725 at the Arts Court Library,

located at 2 Daly Ave Performances get underway at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are ‘pay what you can’ at the door or $20 in advance at The Fools will get the annual summer Shakespeare in the park performances underway with the Merry Wives of Windsor in Strathcona Park on July 3.

Diversity works its way into curriculum: teacher Continued from page 1

Even though the club that normally runs the event, the Evolving Spiritual Nurturing Cultural Equality Club, didn’t gather this year because of teachers’ labour relations issues, it was important enough for students that several decided to take charge and make sure the event still happened. Mahava worked with the Grade 11 leadership course she helped teach as a co-op student to run the event, along with co-organizers Jessica Massaad, Alisar Bawab and Mary Lamkin. The school has a large Lebanese, Persian and Somali population, Mahava said. Holding the event helps celebrate cultures instead of making them a taboo thing to talk about. “I’ve been in it since Grade 9, I love it,” Bawab said of the event. Her family donates food from their Orléans Lebanese restaurant for the festival. “They can see the music, the food, the dancing. They can see what other countries have to offer.” Bawab said she enjoys sharing her culture with her fellow students, because wearing a hijab already makes her cultural differences stand out. But since Sir Wilfrid Laurier is used to having so many students from different backgrounds, there’s a tolerant atmosphere. acceptance

“In the cafeteria, I don’t even have to tell them I don’t want bacon on my breakfast sandwich – they just know I can’t have it,” she said. Mary Lamkin is participating in borrowed Pakistani dress to celebrate a close friend’s culture, after experiencing it at birthday parties and frequent visits to her friend’s family home. “I thought it would be really cool to represent her culture,” she said. “Here, we’re more comfortable with different situations.” Sir Wilfrid Laurier doesn’t have an English as a second

But teachers have adapted to working around different cultural holiday schedules. You’re unlikely to have a test

or heavy work day on Persian New Year, or at the end of Ramadan, a Muslim practice that involves fasting. The school also has a prayer room to accommodate students who need to pray during school times. Prichard says he’s taught in


a number of different schools over his career, but they lack the cultural expression seen at Sir Wilfrid Laurier. It’s started to work it’s way into the classes, integrating more global issues into the curriculum courses they teach, he said.

The International Food Festival is a chance for intricate outfits, a wide range of dance, and every flavour under the sun to come out and shine for students, staff and their families. Mahava said rgw attitude of the school isn’t whether to

celebrate holidays and events or not – like Christmas – but to “celebrate everything.” “Kids are just getting to know kids. These are just kids. The challenges come if you ignore it,.” Prichard said. “This is a celebration we do every day.” R0012095899/0516

Wildlife strategy needs common sense : councillor Laura Mueller

EMC news - The city wants residents’ feedback on its proposal for dealing with wildlife conflicts within city limits, but West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry thinks the issues just require common sense. The city has been picking away at a wildlife strategy since early 2010, when council ordered a review following a series of issues with coyotes. Since then, a number of moose have had to be destroyed and urban sprawl has introduced suburban homes to areas that have habitats for animals like wild turkeys. The strategy proposing a “balanced and humane approach” will be considered by the city’s agriculture and rural affairs committee at a yetto-be-determined date. The biggest thing missing from the discussion about managing wildlife in Ottawa is the responsibility residents must take in living alongside wildlife if they choose to reside in a

rural or semi-rural area, El-Chantiry said. “You’re dwelling in an area that wildlife used to call their home. They still think it’s their home,” he said. Indeed, the city’s draft wildlife strategy emphasizes that many human-wildlife conflicts can be prevented or solved by better understanding the dynamic. “Many conflicts result from carelessness or lack of knowledge of private citizens and public officials regarding the needs and behaviours of wildlife, especially urban wildlife.  Property owners may inadvertently create the conditions that attract wildlife and put them at risk,” the proposed strategy reads. The West Carleton councillor said he gets frustrated when he hears stories about residents offering piles of feed in their yard to attract deer. Not only does that encourage animals to roam around inhabited areas and potentially cause danger, it makes them reliant on humans and unable to survive on their own.

Most problems can be prevented by avoiding those types of activity, El-Chantiry said. “We don’t need to have a strategy,” he said. “But I am willing to learn if someone can come up with a bright idea. Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson, who heads the agricultural and rural affairs committee and has served as the polticial leadership on the issue, did not return repeated phone calls. The Ontario Wildlife Coalition slammed Thompson in a press release on May 1. “In case anyone was under the illusion that the City of Ottawa was going to mirror other modern cities and adopt a progressive approach to wildlife, that illusion came crashing down when Mayor Watson handed the strategy to Coun. Doug Thompson”, stated coalition member Anita Utas, a resident of Stittsville. Utas cites Thompson’s support of a coyote cull as a sign that Thompson’s leadership in the issue means the city is not willing to seek out



“modern” and non-lethal approaches to dealing with wildlife. “If Coun. Thompson’s lethal approach to human/wildlife conflicts is any measure, then we are going to see an escalation of wild animals being killed in Ottawa,” coalition and Animal Alliance of Canada spokeswoman Liz White stated in the press release. The city’s role is quite limited when it comes to dealing with conflicts between people and animals. Most of that responsibility is supposed to lay with the provincial Ministry of Natural Resources. But that department has been neutered over time by incremental budget cuts, El-Chantiry said – leaving the city to pick up the slack. “In the absence of the MNR doing their job, we are trying to be nice (and) pick up the slack,” he said. At this point, police officers are responding to calls more often than ministry staff, which is why there might be a need for a city wildlife strategy, El-Chantiry said. Another issue to consider is that Ottawa is a “hot spot” for species at risk, according to the draft strategy, with as many as 52 species at risk known or suspected to make their habitat here.  Twenty nine of those species are

protected as threatened or endangered species under the provincial Endangered Species Act. The strategy suggests the city is missing opportunities to promote its natural character. “How many residents of Ottawa know that moose live within a 15minute drive of Ottawa city hall, or that Lac Deschênes is recognized as a globally significant bird area, or that 52 species at risk can be found within the city’s boundaries?” the draft strategy reads. “How many of Ottawa’s visitors or potential visitors know that they can paddle past turtles and herons on the shores of the idyllic Mississippi River or the Morris Island Conservation Area, fish for muskellunge within walking distance of Parliament Hill, picnic and pick berries on the Carp Hills Rock Barrens, or identify the winter tracks of fishers and otters in the woods and wetlands of the Marlborough Forest?  Ottawa is blessed with an abundance of wildlife in their natural habitats, easily accessible to the public, of which it could and should boast.” The strategy suggests doing that by planning an urban wildlife speaker series and additional school outreach and more information on the city’s website,

Volunteer ‘scientists’ can help stream clean-up EMC news - The Rideau Valley Conservation Authority is looking for volunteer “scientists” to help monitor, protect and clean up Ottawa streams. The monitoring program is part of City Stream Watch run by the RVCA, and a training session for interested volunteers will be held on Saturday, May 25, to introduce them to the basic techniques of being a stream scientist. “If you’ve ever wanted to be a citizen scientist, then now’s the perfect time to get involved,” said Chelsey Ellis, City Stream Watch co-ordinator. “All necessary equipment is provided and there is no cost to volunteers. People can choose which stream or streams they wish to work on over the summer.” This year the program is collecting data on Cranberry Creek in Kars, Hunt Club Creek in Ottawa South, Ramsay Creek in Gloucester, Borthwick Creek in Gloucester and Voyageur/West Bilberry Creek in Orleans. The 2013 sampling season will focus on recording basic natural

characteristics of the stream and fish community sampling. There are also opportunities for clean-ups, shoreline planting and invasive species removal. “This is a great chance for interested members of the community to learn about and help care for their local streams,” Ellis said. “It can be fun and rewarding – meeting and working with other dedicated stream stewards while doing something positive for our valuable streams.” The training session will take place along the shores of Graham Creek in the west end on May 25 from 9 a.m. to noon. Volunteers must pre-registration for the event. To register or for more information, contact Ellis at From its inception in 2003, volunteer numbers have grown from 26 to over two hundred.

Baseball proposal strikes out New facility to house 2,500 staff Laura Mueller

EMC news - A former Ottawa baseball team’s general manager says Ottawa is failing its kids by not opening up its baseball stadium this summer. Duncan MacDonald, who used to run the Intercounty Baseball League Ottawa Fat Cats, says the city has rejected his offer to re-open and manage the stadium for baseball and events this summer. The stadium could sit unused this summer after the city failed to renew the Fat Cats’ lease so it could keep the facility available for renovations needed to upgrade it for AA baseball. But so far, no AA

mer, but it wants to keep the schedule flexible to accommodate repairs and upgrades. Meanwhile, Little League teams are emailing him to say they have to turn kids away because there is a shortage of diamond space. “We have a waiting list for Little League,” MacDonald said. “We have failed our kids.” The Fat Cats re-ignited enthusiasm for baseball in Ottawa, MacDonald said, and now the city’s Little League teams can’t keep up with the demand. “Now, we can’t even get enough respect for them to consider our proposal,” MacDonald said.

team has materialized for Ottawa, leaving the renovation schedule unclear. Instead of mothballing the stadium, MacDonald and his company, Marketing Breakthroughs, proposed the city hire them to manage the facility for the summer. Their plan includes hosting family fun days, baseball camps for Little League players and hosting National Capital Baseball League adult games. But the city isn’t biting, MacDonald said. He received an email from the city’s general manager of parks and recreation saying that the city might have some occasional programming at the stadium throughout the sum-

Their website also states that the new Blair Road facility will be the “largest repository of top secret information in Canada.” The facility is close to the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, and is set to finish construction and landscaping in November 2014. Galipeau said that the building has created 5,000 construction jobs as well as the 2,500 employees who will be working in the east end at the Cardinal Creek Community Association AGM on May 2. The estimated economic impact of the new Blair Road facility on the immediate area is $1.7 billion over the next 30 years.

EMC news - The new Communications Security Establishment Canada will be home to 2,500 employees, said Ottawa-Orléans MP Royal Galipeau. “They’re all high-paying jobs,” Galipeau said of the employees who will be working out of the new facility under construction on Blair Road. Much of the work that CSEC does is secret, with little information provided on the nature of the specific jobs or tasks the agency undertakes, but it revolves around cybersecurity and collecting intelligence from international sources. “Much of the work at CSEC is classified and

Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s revel in Sens fever


he signs of spring are many in Ottawa. Tulips are in bloom, joggers and cyclists are more common sights along the canal and restaurant patios are once again becoming an afternoon destination. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely something else in the air this spring, however. There are a few more little red flags perched on the tops of cars, there are a more red T-shirts and jerseys marked by a distinctive Spartan logo adorning passers-by, and the streets and shops are a little more barren at around 7 p.m. every other evening. Yes, hockey fever has hit Ottawa a bit harder this spring. The Ottawa Senators eased past the Montreal Canadiens in five games last week, including a pair of raucous encounters at Scotiabank Place. For those without tickets, fans filled bars, restaurants and living rooms across the city to watch games on TV. The Sens Mile, the nickname given to Elgin Street come playoff time, is once again an exuberant, festive gathering place for both hardcore fans and fair-weather faithful alike. Securing passage to the second round of the National Hockey League playoffs will only draw larger crowds.

The city once dubbed the worst sports city in Canada is once again showing how off the mark such a comment was. It is times like these, when a city institution becomes something more than just a local curiosity, that the true value of sports teams becomes apparent. It turns everyone wearing Senators garb into a friendly face. It gives everyone at school or the office a chance to talk about something that is exciting and current, allowing people to cast aside their everyday worries and fears for a few fleeting weeks. But it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen every year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the last time the Senators won a playoff round was 2007, when they reached the Stanley Cup final â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and it only occurs in the springtime. Ottawans have only one hometown rooting interest when it comes to professional team sports so far, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about to change. By the end of 2014, there will be a couple more players on the block in the form of Canadian Football League and North American Soccer League franchises. It will take a while for Ottawa fans to warm to their new clubs, but all it will likely take is a good postseason run to capture the sporting imagination. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enjoy these days: they are part of what adds a splash of colour to the fabric of our city.


You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hear the birds sing by the parkway


s much as people would like to have the whole thing over with, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s likely that the public controversy over the west-end LRT route will go on and on. Already, city councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vote on the subject has been delayed by more than a month. Ostensibly thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to allow for more community consultation. You can bet that more delays are to come. Rome wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t paved in a day. So we can talk about it some more. Today, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talk about the romanticizing of the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or the Western Parkway, as it used to be known in less politicized times. To hear the National Capital Commission discuss it, in dismissing any talk of trains on the route, the parkway is one step removed from a wildlife refuge: a sea of green beside the river, the quiet broken only by the sounds of birds singing, the only signs of movement the leisurely pace of walkers and the silent glide of bicyclists. Clearly, in the NCCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s view, to put trains there would be to destroy a beauteous ecosystem. Well, the NCC hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been out there when people are heading in to work in the morning and heading home in the afternoon. Then,

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town instead of a sea of green, it becomes a sea of cars, ripping along at 80 kilometres per hour, often more, except when they are jammed up into long, motionless, exhaust-spewing lines waiting to turn onto the Champlain Bridge. Oh, yes, and buses, lots of buses, also disturb the wildlife refuge. It thins out quite a bit during off-peak hours and on the weekends, but the parkway is still the preferred route downtown for a lot of west-enders. In many ways, whatever its noble origins, whatever the lofty ideals of those who manage it, the parkway has become just a road, just another thing named after Sir John A. It is not sacred ground. Perhaps it once was. I should note that I live about a seven-minPublished weekly by:










ute walk from the proposed Byron Tramway tunnel. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to affect my life in any way and I actually donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mind the idea all that much. But there are many who live closer who do, particularly those whose properties back onto the narrow strip by the parkway where the city proposes to put tracks. Others who live along Byron face a serious inconvenience, at least during the construction period if not after. Of course, people are always inconvenienced when a major project goes ahead. Some of us are called on to make sacrifices for the greater good. If, however, the decision was made to use the parkway for light rail, hooking up with the Transitway at its western end, only the NCC would be inconvenienced. That western end of the parkway is at quite a remove from residential properties and those who inhabit those properties are used to having hundreds of buses go by. The NCC would survive, you can be sure of that, perhaps turning its attentions to other projects that might improve the life of residents of the capital area. Speaking of which, is anything else ever going to happen on LeBreton Flats? Those who oppose light rail on the parkway and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like the Richmond-Byron alter-


native either, have strongly supported Carling Avenue as a light rail route. It can certainly be argued that the street is such a mess anyway that nothing could make it worse. So why not put light rail there? However, a convincing case has been set out, most recently in a lengthy Citizen article, that a light rail route using Carling would be logistically difficult in spots and prohibitively expensive, unless construction involved no bridges or tunnels. With the number of stoplights involved, the speed attained would be no greater than a streetcar. Hmmm, streetcars. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t some other cities have those? Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we wish we still did?

Teaching kids about social media



To the editor,

n the wake of Rehtaeh Parsonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; death, people came out to condemn her alleged attackers and the justice system that failed her. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s normal. What few people want to recognize, however, is what Christie Blatchford controversially pointed out in a recent Postmedia column -- that the case against the alleged rapists was too flimsy to stand up in court. At root of this case, however, is not the alleged rape itself, but what happened in the aftermath. That social media exists is central to the Parsons story. That teenagers use it to post compromising photos of themselves and others without thinking of the consequences is the biggest problem because it makes cyber-bullying difficult to legislate and even harder to prove. The unfortunate reality is that many alleged victims of cyber-bullying are wilfully engaging in the circulation of images and comments that ultimately lead to their own downfall. The lines between cyberbullying and wilful engagement are thus horribly blurred in the eyes of the law. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incredibly trivial by comparison, but I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine if iPhones had existed when I fell off a cooler and passed wind at a party in Grade


9. I was mortified as it was. The memory haunted me throughout my high school years, as it frequently came up in jokes or conversation within my social circle. (Yeah, I was the girl who fell off a cooler and farted â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in front of the boy I had a crush on, no less). Fortunately, social media didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exist because had a photo or video ended up going viral, my life surely would have changed forever. Although extroverted, I was actually incredibly insecure as a teen. A permanent record of that event probably would have sunk me. Under the law, then and now, it would be difficult for someone to suggest that a video of me farting was â&#x20AC;&#x153;bullying,â&#x20AC;? even more so if I had posted it myself as some kind of defence mechanism. (He who laughs first, laughs last, etc.). Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frightening that, at the most insecure and vulnerable times in their lives, many teenagers feel it necessary to put every minute detail about themselves -- real or

imagined -- out there to be publicly lauded or condemned. Social media isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going away anytime soon. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no point in an all-out ban. Anyone whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ever suggested a teenager do anything healthy -- like turn off Facebook -knows, more likely than not, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do completely the opposite As a society, however, we have a responsibility to dig deep and try to make the correlations -- if there are some -- between social media, â&#x20AC;&#x153;bullying,â&#x20AC;? teenage depression and suicide. But rather than focus on those who may or may not be vindictively circulating the photos, we need to shift our focus to the majority of kids, the ones who are most likely the victims and we need to teach them to use these tools wisely. Rather than giving our toddlers touchscreens indiscriminately to keep them entertained, we need to take the time as parents to demonstrate and explain the capabilities and the power of these technologies. Perhaps the most difficult part of this will be convincing this generation of digital natives that there are consequences to their actions lasting far beyond the click of a button. For Parsonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; family, the consequences were too great to bear. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s make sure she has not died in vain.

East End

Facts, figures and statistics Interesting how the numbers thrown around by MPP Phil McNeely are all over the map but always lead back to the same conclusion, namely that our real estate investments in OrlĂŠans have gone to pot. We all agree that the loss of jobs or relocation of employers can have an adverse impact on our finances. However, the latest figures about the number of National Defence employees who actually live in OrlĂŠans (but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work here) and who may be affected by the NDHQ move to the former Nortel site show a less dire effect than Mr. McNeely projected. In fact, Phil McNeely conveniently overlooks the new jobs being located in the east end where approximately 5,000 federal employees in national security are being located in the vicinity of Blair Road. Indeed these jobs are further east and more convenient for OrlĂŠans residents than any previous government installations (other than the former LETE site on St. Joseph). Moreover, these facilities provide an opportunity for spinoffs in the high-tech security field that one would expect the private sector

Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess

2013 21st Annual



to take advantage of by setting up supporting jobs in eastern Ottawa. Just a few facts: in the year 2000, Nortel Networks had 17,000 employees in Ottawa at its main R&D centre; JDS Uniphase had 15,000 local employees. When the tech bubble burst, JDS shrank from 30,000 worldwide to 5,000 and moved its headquarters to California; Nortel slashed its workforce in half and continued to slide into bankruptcy. Corel, Alcatel, Dell and other major employers were caught in their own struggles. While the gnashing of teeth is inevitable, the challenge is to ensure we pull together in the same direction. City councillors have been working with the Heart of OrlĂŠans Business Improvement Association and the chamber of commerce and our federal member of parliament. We have introduced a number of economic development programs such as the original Community Improvement Program for St. Joseph Boulevard and the pending CIP for our industrial lands are designed to stimulate the local economy and encourage job creation by the private sector.

Ottawa-area Liberal MPPs tout 2013 budget

EMC news - With the fate of their governing status riding on opposition approval, area Liberal MPPs gathered at the Argyle Street YMCA on May 3 to tout the beneďŹ ts of their social-justice-heavy 2013 Ontario budget. Ottawa West MPP Bob Chiarelli joined Ottawa Centre MPP Yasir Naqvi, OttawaVanier MPP Madeleine Meilleur, Ottawa-Orleans MPP Phil McNeely and GlengarryPrescott-Russell MPP Grant Crack for the overview. Reduced to a minority government in the 2011 election and battling claims of ďŹ nancial irresponsibility which continue in the form of the ongoing gas-plant cancellation scandal, the Ontario Liberals need the NDPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s support to pass the $127.6 billion bud-


Chiarelli touted a health care investment aimed at seniors, which he said will provide relief for caregivers and increased independence for the elderly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our plan will increase investment in home and community care by more than

$700 million by 2015-2016,â&#x20AC;? said Chiarelli. The budget states this would help 46,000 more people receive home-based health care. Though the Greater Toronto Area is the focus of a transitfunding strategy employing high-occupancy toll lanes, the Ottawa area would see two cents per litre of the existing gas tax returned to the municipality for transit improvements. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The provincial investment of two cents per litre of provincial gas tax revenue has yielded $2.2 billion for public transit systems in Ontario since 2004,â&#x20AC;? said McNeely. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year, this delivered â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for Ottawa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; $34 million.â&#x20AC;? Meilleur stressed â&#x20AC;&#x153;the importance of building a fairer society,â&#x20AC;? announcing new funding for developmental services and changes for the Ontario Works or Ontario Disability Support Programs that allow recipients to keep $200 from monthly earnings. The improvements would be funded by a $400 million investment over three years. For a single, childless ODSP

or Ontario Works recipients, that means they would see their monthly cheque grow by $20. Meilleur was asked what that increase would mean to a recipient. RIGHT DIRECTION

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It means a lot for them, because they have been asking for that,â&#x20AC;? said Meilleur. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a big gap, so it is not going to be ďŹ lled overnight â&#x20AC;Ś . It is modest, I recognize, but it is going in the right direction.â&#x20AC;?

Naqvi, the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new labour minister, described his governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $295 million Youth Jobs Strategy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a twoyear initiative aimed at creating 30,000 job opportunities for youth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This strategy would connect young people with careers they can build on,â&#x20AC;? said Naqvi, laying out the structure of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;comprehensiveâ&#x20AC;? program, which includes a youth employment fund, youth jobs strategy, youth entrepreneurship fund and youth innova-

tion fund. In response to a question that referenced criticism of the Liberalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; programming implementation from their former economic strategist Don Drummond, Naqvi said the government is meeting 60 per cent of Drummondâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommendations and achieving results in deďŹ cit reduction.

get. The Ontario PC Party has previously declared it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t support it. New spending in the areas of youth employment, social assistance, health care, transit funding strategies, infrastructure funding and a 15 per cent reduction in car insurance rates were the key planks in this budget. The budget, crafted by new ďŹ nance minister Charles Sousa, shows a deďŹ cit that increases to $11.7 Billion, higher than last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s but less than predicted for this year. The government of Premier Kathleen Wynne has stated it aims to eliminate the deďŹ cit by 2017-2018 in order to start paying off the debt, which is forecast to top $300 billion by 2015-2016.






Party has to appease NDP to see budget passed

Local projects on the radar Continued from page 11

“Part of that exercise…is to look at our programs, to see that we are implementing programs in a manner that they are delivering and producing results,” said Naqvi. “This youth jobs strategy very much comes from the work the jobs and prosperity council has done, which is made up of eminent business leaders, economists, and members of the labour sector. We will work with them to ensure the principles (and) the fundamentals of the youth jobs strategy really meet the needs in the community.” The implementation timeline for the strategy is not clear at this time. Of billions in infrastructure money outlined in the budget, $100 million of it is earmarked for roads and bridges in rural areas. In response to a question, Chiarelli said the guidelines for distributing that money have yet to be crafted, but stated municipalities who have plans already in place stand better chances of receiving funding. In the Ottawa area, ongoing projects are receiving funding previously agreed to by the province -- among them the Confederation Line LRT project and the Highway 417 widening. No new specific expenditures have been announced, though demand remains high in Ottawa for

“I think it’s a virtual certainty that, on the basis of three level of government participation, the province will be at the table.” Chiarelli stated it is possible that, if the budget is passed, the same HOV strategy that is being applied to the GTA region could be applied to Highway 417 for transit funding purposes. Such a move would only come after the pilot project in Toronto is

studied. Questioned about NDP leader Andrea Horwath’s non-committal attitude towards the budget the previous evening, Chiarelli spoke of the many meetings that have occurred between the Liberals and NDP, as well as his party’s need conduct itself in line with its minority standing. Following the October 2011 provincial election, then-premier Dalton McGuinty declared his government to be a “major minority” before announcing his resignation and proroguing the legislature a year later. Chiarelli also slammed the Ontario PC’s for preemptively withdrawing their support without having seen the budget. As for Horwath, Chiarelli said he understood her need to ensure what was being laid out in the budget was not just down-the-road promises, though his statement seemed to end with a veiled warning to Horwath about how a negative response could rile her supporter base. “The substance is there, the money is there, the commitment is there to honour what the NDP has asked for,” said Chiarelli. “I believe there would be a lot of very disappointed people across the province, including a lot of supporters of the NDP – including the unions – if she doesn’t support the initiatives she asked for.”

PCs say lack of budget support rooted in lack of compromise

EMC news - The opposition Ontario PC party left the governing Liberals to woo the NDP for budget support following meetings with Premier Kathleen Wynne that failed to produce supportable fiscal action. That’s the claim made by Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa MacLeod following last week’s release of the 2013 provincial budget, which the Progressive Conservatives are vowing not to support. Left with only a minority in the legislature following the 2011 election, the Liberals are hoping for NDP support to pass their $126.7 billion budget and avoid an election. Following the selection of Wynne as Liberal leader in January, MacLeod said PC leader Tim Hudak met with the premier five times to discuss his party’s vision for a budget that included serious debt-reduction measures. Ideas put forward regarding reduced expenditures weren’t acted upon, she said. “It became clear to us that it wasn’t a budget we could support,” said MacLeod. “The only way to get out of the red and into the black is through a change of government. The longer we have debt pressures in Ontario the more vulnerable our services will be.” Items added to the Ontario budget to attract NDP support included increased spending on social services and a 15 per cent reduction in auto insurance rates. The forecasted deficit for this year is $11.7 billion, with provincial debt

projected to rise to over $300 billion by 20152016. MacLeod stated the current debt load for a child born into the province is $20,000, and that debt is only forecast to rise, making interest payments a bigger part of the annual budget and taking away from other expenditures. “The level of spending is unsustainable,” said MacLeod. NDP support

With budget’s fate riding on the approval of NDP leader Andrea Horwath, who has stated she’s currently sitting on the fence in terms of supporting it, MacLeod said Horwath’s future credibility could at stake. “If (Horwath) supports the Liberals, she’ll lose credibility in the eyes of the public -- and there’s no appetite to prop up this government,” said MacLeod. “I think if she chooses to prop up the government she can no longer discuss the power plant issue or the plight of the middle class in this province.” At the moment, the only party with a platform championing debt reduction is the PCs, said MacLeod, adding that while their platform might not make them the most popular party on the ballot, they are advocating the measures out of “responsibility.” No date has been set for a budget vote, though MacLeod said it seems likely to fall on the week following the May 24 weekend.

Plans to update the Rideau Centre gets OKed by NCC Michelle Nash

EMC news - The National Capital Commission has given the green light to plans that will see an update to the facade of the Rideau Centre. Cadillac Fairview, owner of the downtown shopping centre, has proposed changes that will affect the facade on portions of Rideau Street, Colonel By Drive, Nicholas Street and McKenzie King Bridge. Christopher Hoyt, the senior architect overseeing the project, presented the recommendations to the NCC board at a recent meeting. The presentation included preliminary

images of revamped Rideau Street and Mackenzie King entrances, an updated pedestrian bridge between the shopping centre and the Hudson’s Bay store on the opposite side of Rideau, and a new garage entrance on Nicholas Street. The commission does not own the land, but a restrictive covenant was part of the 1981 sale to then-owners of the property, the Viking Rideau Corporation. which states any alterations to the exterior or new structures built are subject to the approval of the NCC. The covenant affects the facade along Rideau Street and Sussex Avenue, Colonel By Drive, portions of Nicholas

owner take over responsibility for the terrace. “I can confirm that we would like to have a discussion with them about the entire project, including the rooftop terrace,” he said. “Absolutely we have put it to the centre.” Board member Jason Sordi expressed reservations about the current state of Rideau Street, concerned that if hoarding is placed along the street during construction, it could provide more places for people to hide or make the street more unsavory then it already is. Board member Kay Stanley said she was intrigued by the project and felt that as the renovations move forward, some

The proposed plans were well received by the NCC board and were unanimously approved. The board, however, did consider whether the roof-top terrace needed to remain as a NCC-operated property. Fred Gaspere, director of federal approvals and environmental management for the NCC, said commission staff have recommended the mall

concerns about safety and pedestrian use Rideau Street will improve. The board approved the preliminary designs with the following conditions * That the west elevation of the project at Colonel By Drive be developed further and in accordance with upcoming NCC guidelines for naming and signage and that drawings for this elevation be reviewed by the NCC for approval. • That Cadillac Fairview provide a detailed construction schedule for the project to the NCC for review. • That the roof terrace plans and detailed design be provided to the NCC for review.

• That the building design and construction drawings, specifications, and material samples as pertaining to roofscape, building envelope, site and landscape development be provided to the NCC for review for major drawing issues. • That the property owner obtain for permission to alter The Transportation building, also known as 10 Rideau St., prior to any construction under the terms of the Ontario Heritage Act. • That the Parks Canada standards and guidelines be respected as they pertain to development along the Rideau Canal World Heritage Site.

with Clean Eating and Active Living Eat Clean…

Burn Fat

Eating clean is simply the practice of avoiding processed and refined foods and basing your diet on whole foods. Whole foods include foods that are found in their natural state, such as fruits and vegetables, whole grains, grass-fed and free-range meats, wild fish, unsalted nuts, and seeds. The health benefits include the prevention of lifestyle diseases, losing weight and just feeling better! Relaxing, laughing and living is also a part of being well, so feel good by applying this 80% of the time and kicking back and enjoy the other 20% of the time.

§ Eat Your Breakfast – Those who eat breakfast have a waistline about 2 inches smaller! Make sure to eat within 90 minutes of waking up to make this work! § Snack Regularly – If you wait too long between meals, your metabolism will slow down, causing your body to burn less fat than normal. Eat every 3 hours! § Drink Green Tea – Drink at least 3 cups of green tea a day! § Drink Enough Water – Women should drink about 9 cups a day and men about 12 cups. § Pump Some Iron – Strength training speeds up your metabolism, burns calories and sculpts sexy muscles. You should make strength training about 60% of your exercise routine! § Clock Your Sets – To burn fat faster while you strength train, limit the time between sets. Shorter rests keeps your metabolism going and your heart rate up!


Be Lean

Include clean foods like avocado with anti-aging rich antioxidants. Avocados contain monounsaturated (good) fats which can help reverse insulin resistance and help regulate blood sugar levels. They also help us increase the absorption of other fat soluble nutrients such as eye friendly beta carotene, by up to 5 times!

On May 16, Hydro Ottawa and Christie Lake Kids announced their partnership to establish the new ‘Hydro Ottawa Sustainable Youth Leadership Centre’.

Nifty Fifty Gloucester High School graduates, current and former staff reunited on May 3 and 4 for the school’s 50th reunion. The reunion included decade rooms through the school, sports and music activities, and a dinner.

The Centre, to be built at Belle Island on Christie Lake near Perth, Ontario, will provide a unique opportunity for youth to learn about alternative energy while building their leadership skills. The camp’s ‘Leaders in Training’ Program, for kids 13 to 17 years old, offers a fun-filled living experience on Belle Island. For 36 days over seven weeks this summer and eight weekends during the school year, the kids will work together as a sustainable community. “Through our support of Christie Lake Kids we are helping to teach kids valuable life skills that all youth need in order to grow into healthy, successful adults,” said Bryce Conrad, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hydro Ottawa. Christie Lake Kids is a registered charity that has been working in Ottawa for 90 years providing recreation and skills-building programs for young people whose families may not have the means for them to attend camp. “Christie Lake Kids is very excited to partner with Hydro Ottawa. The new ‘Sustainable Youth Leadership Centre’ is a clear demonstration of how companies can make a difference by supporting programs that serve some of the most vulnerable children and youth in our community,” said Carole Gagné-Ince, Executive Director of Christie Lake Kids. Campers will experience a number of alternate power sources and sustainable technologies firsthand at the new facility. Green technologies include solar cells, a human-powered pump, and a gravity pressurized water system that draws water from the lake to a water tower. Hydro Ottawa employees will help with the construction of the new facility. The partnership also provides employees with the opportunity to mentor youth enrolled in the Christie Lake Kids S.T.A.R. Program, ‘Skills Through Activity and Recreation’.

NDP press to lower car insurance premiums Patricia Leboeuf



EMC news - A motion presented by the NDP could have Kanata and all Ontario residents seeing a 15 per cent slash in their auto insurance premiums. The provincial New Democrats pushed for the motion after watching premiums go up and payouts go down. Since 2010, the provincial government has agreed to increase premiums by five per cent and cut benefits by more than 50 per cent, saving the insurance companies about $2 billion annually. Previously the typical payout a moderately injured customer would receive hovered around $100,000, but the cap has lowered that amount to $50,000 with the average receiving much less. “The vast majority of people are now being told they can only get up to $3,500 in coverage which makes our coverage amongst the lowest in all of Canada,” said Bramalea-Gore-Malton MPP Jagmeet Singh. “Insurance companies have enjoyed, and this is not an exaggeration, one of the most historically significant reductions in their costs in Ontario’s history. Period,” he added. “So we are paying more money for an inferior product.” Over the years, the insurance companies have seen an overall cost reduction of 35 per cent. A legislated reduction of premiums of 15 per cent seemed fair for both customers and the industry, said the MPP. “We want results that are achievable, that are reasonable and that will help people out,” said Singh.


Fraud prevention: PCs Insurance brokers do not believe a legislated premium reduction is the way to go, neither do the Progressive Conservatives. “The motion to reduce premiums by 15 per cent period is a noble thought, but however it doesn’t address the problem about why the premiums are high,” said Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP Jack MacLaren.

Various stakeholders have identified that preventing fraud is an integral piece to cutting down premiums for all. Fraud costs the industry between $750 million and $1.5 billion annually. Insurance companies are also wrapped in yards of red tape. They must apply to a regulatory body to change a premium rate whether to increase or decrease it. The process is slow and cumbersome and can take up to six months to get a reply, said MacLaren. Appealing a claim is also a tedious process, with customers often waiting up to a year for a response. Imposing a mandatory slash in premiums could do more harm than good by eliminating competition and the root causes of the problem would still be there, said MacLaren. “We have to do the tough work of getting rid of the fraud, getting rid of the red tape and providing a truly competitive environment for private companies,” he said. “The marketplace will reward us with lower premiums.” The NDP has countered that the party supports reducing fraud but that reductions in 2010 have already cut the number of cases and cost significantly. “It shouldn’t be contingent on further fraud reduction measures,” said Singh. “I think that’s a red herring, a politic of distraction. I think we should see those changes now. We are more than happy to implement more fraud reduction policies down the road but those should be tied in to more reductions.” The Liberal government has agreed to add the motion to the province’s yearly budget, but it was a hard sell. Petitions were signed, city halls were visited and a grassroots movement was built and finally was accepted. “All those things together, I think worked in finally putting pressure,” he added. The provincial budget is planned to be approved at the end of April, but customers could start feeling the effects within a year. “People will start feeling it during their renewal,” said Singh.

River councillor wants penalties for shoddy contractors Laura Mueller

EMC news - Coun. Maria McCrae says holding subpar contractors to account is at the top of her priority list this spring. At an April 24 city council meeting, the River Ward councillor asked city staff to look into what kind of penalties are in place – or could be adopted – to punish contractors that don’t live up to the terms of their deals to work with the city. “In general, I am very curious to know what the process is that our municipality either has in place or that council could put in place to create an environment whereby contractors who have been on a city project and duly accepted a contractual arrangement with the city and are spending taxpayer money … that they are held to account,” McRae said. That means ensuring that contractors perform to the specifications laid out in their contracts, but also that the city “has the ability to seek whatever legal penalties are available to us,” when those conditions aren’t met, McRae said. It’s not the first time in recent memory that a councillor has taken a run at the issue. In 2011, council passed a motion geared at blacklisting suppliers or

contractors whose services aren’t up to snuff. Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais launched that motion after a contractor error led to several recreational facilities being closed at once, rather than staggered closures to minimize how many centres had to be closed at once. “I think that was the tip of the discussion about it,” McRae said. “I think that could be part of the remedies that are available to the municipality. But I think it’s about accountability and it’s about making sure that our corporation is protecting the interests of our residents.” A similar topic was under discussion last summer after transit commissioners were miffed after discovering that no penalty clause was included in the contract to develop a mobile app for OC Transpo. At that time, the city’s supply branch said it uses a number of strategies to ensure that its contracts are properly managed and delivered on time, including: • Requiring various forms of security • Obtaining a pre-determined sum to mitigate financial risk • Requesting production schedules • Monitoring supplier performance through an e-procurement database.

“Milos, I am going to Break you”


Connected to your community

A mini-revolution is brewing in North America. The approach is called “Progressive Tennis.” It is imported from European countries such as France and Belgium where it was used to successfully develop players like Justine Henin-Hardenne and Olivier Rochus. Progressive Tennis uses a systematic progression of court sizes, balls, and racquets, to scale the game down to an appropriate level for 5-10 year olds. Modified racquets and balls are not new. The equipment has been around for a while, as has the “graduated length” concept. Coaches have used bits and pieces for years seeing the advantage from the perspective of success, fun and safety. The difference this time is that all these elements have been brought together in a much more systematic way than ever before. Tennis companies now carry the full line of half-court and ¾-court progressive equipment including graduated, balls, racquets, lay down lines and nets. The power of the progressive tennis system is that it allows players to play quickly and successfully. In Progressive Tennis, the philosophy is that tennis is a great and fun game to play and the quicker and more skillfully a player can play the more fun it is. Each stage not only has specific equipment to aid success, but particular skills to develop as well. It is recommended a Game-Based Approach be used. The coach’s job is to get them to play, and help them learn to play better. Simply put, “Progressive Tennis” is used as a developmental tool to allow young children to improve their overall tennis skills faster so they can transition to the regular court with more ease. The OTA, NCTA, City of Ottawa and all of our clubs are committed to helping you and your children play this great game. Sean Sweeney OTA Regional Chair said that: “All of us are committed to helping introduce over 25 000 new kids to the game of tennis by Dec 2013”. So, call or drop by one of our great clubs below and get started today. You too can crush Milos and his 242KM serve. Well maybe not but you can have a great time trying.

Slower Balls, Smaller Courts, Right sized Racquets” Get started today.

Tennis has changed, come see how!


• Progressive Tennis uses adjusted equipment for young participants and playing formats to match their level of play. This allows a much faster progression to truly enjoy the game. • Progressive Tennis focuses on the skill development to stimulate and maintain excitement and enjoyment. • Progressive Tennis is for ages 3 to 99+.

Government to tackle cyber bullying


Jennifer McIntosh

The government wants to provide young people with the tools to fight violence. Rona Ambrose, Minister of Public Works and Government Services and Minister for Status of Women, today announced Harper Government support to help end relationship violence among young Canadians through a new online resource. “Recent incidents demonstrate the need to do all we can to prevent the tragic consequences of violence, cyber-bullying, and online exploitation,” said Ambrose. “Our Government is pleased to partner with the Canadian Red Cross and Respect Group Inc. on this project to prevent violence among Canadian teens.” Ambrose said there has been a significant increase in the number of reported cases of young people involved in relationship violence. The government is partnering with the Canadian Red Cross and Respect Group Inc. to create an online educational workshop to raise awareness about relationship violence and promote healthy relationships among young Canadians, ages 14 to 18 year olds. She announced the partnership at Lisgar Collegiate Institute on April 30. “We are pleased to receive the Government of Canada’s support for this new project to help young Canadians have respectful and healthy relationships,” said Leslie Dunning, the director general of violence and

Somerset Street set to come alive Steph Willems

EMC news - Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chinatown will become a hotbed of art, food and culture during a May 18 street celebration. Now in its ďŹ fth year, Chinatown Remixed is a growing one-day event that brings together Somerset Street West businesses with Ottawa artists of all mediums. From restaurants and groceries to medical ofďŹ ces and laundromats, local businesses open their doors to artists and patrons as a way of celebrating the cultural uniqueness of the neighbourhood. The street celebration ends appropriately with an outdoor after-party held at Shanghai Restaurant. Donald Kwan, co-owner of Shanghai, co-founded the non-proďŹ t collective that has run Chinatown Remixed

since its inception in 2009. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year there are 40 different venues, paired with 40 visual artists,â&#x20AC;? said Kwan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are video installations, artists working with sound, sculptural elements â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really diverse crosssection of the arts scene.â&#x20AC;? The celebration receives funding and support from both the city and the Somerset Street Chinatown BIA. Kwan, who has an art history background, took his skill in curating the space inside his restaurant and decided to apply it to the whole Chinatown community. At ďŹ rst, he ďŹ gured it would be difďŹ cult bringing enough artists on board. He was proven wrong, as the event is attracting more artists than space allows. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every year we do a call-out for (artistic) submissions in January and this year we had over 100,â&#x20AC;? said Kwan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d think the talent pool in Ottawa

wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be that strong, but each year it gets larger and larger.â&#x20AC;? A jury of ďŹ ve artists invites talent from the arts community and makes the annual selections. The 40 artists involved in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event are proďŹ led on the website, alongside a map showing what establishments they will showing in. The printable map allows participants to get the most out of their May 18 experience. Food and beverage factors into the street experience as well, as restaurants will have goodies on hand and Kitchesippi Beer Company will be handing out samples of its new soda line while sponsoring (and fueling) the main stage at Shanghai Restaurant.

Strandherd-Armstrong bridge delayed another year Laura Mueller

EMC news - The already delayed Strandherd-Armstrong bridge wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be completed until September of 2014 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; more than a year after it was scheduled to be done. The latest hiccup comes after almost a year of delays following the original contractor entering receivership. Work on the $48-million project was halted after Concreate USL, the Bolton, Ont.-based contractor the city hired to build the bridge, went into receivership in late March of 2012. The city says several issues have contributed to the latest delay. Delivery of the bridgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arches was late. The complex nature of the welding and prep work needed before the bridge can be moved into place over the Rideau River is also slowing the project down, according to a press release from the city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am disappointed by the news that further delays are impacting the completion date for the StrandherdArmstrong bridge and the inconvenience this is causing to the residents of Ottawa,â&#x20AC;? Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches said in the press release. Construction of the bridge is more than 70 per cent completed, Desroches said in the statement. Last March, the city said the bridge was 60 per cent done. A â&#x20AC;&#x153;major portionâ&#x20AC;? of the welding

work is now completed. The contractor does plan to launch the bridge into its ďŹ nal position over the river this summer. The next step will be to pour the concrete. That is scheduled for the spring of 2014. The City of Ottawa will use its $23-million performance bond to ensure that that the Strandherd-Armstrong bridge is completed at no extra cost to taxpayers. The contractor will also have to compensate the city for damages starting September 1, 2013 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the original date the company was contractually obligated to complete

If there is a major delay in the bridgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening, we may see some delay in the introduction of some of the major businesses planned

Strandherd-Armstrong bridge across the Rideau River linking the communities of Riverside South and Barrhaven. The Riverside South Community Association, whose residents will beneďŹ t from the bridge when it is opened, said it is worried about the latest developments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously we are concerned,â&#x20AC;? Scott Hodge, president of the association, said last spring. Hodge said the delay could affect a lot of the commercial growth that is currently planned in Riverside South based on the projections of the bridge being in place. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If there is a major delay in the bridgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening, we may see some

delay in the introduction of some of the major businesses planned,â&#x20AC;? said Hodge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We use a number of retail businesses and services in Barrhaven on (a) regular basis

and the bridge would certainly facilitate our access to that community and equally facilitate the access of Barrhaven residents into Riverside South.â&#x20AC;?

Vélo fest partners with kidney foundation Charity hopes event will help raise awareness

EMC news - A new partnership with a sporting event aims to raise much needed awareness and funds for the Kidney Foundation of Canada. Capital Vélo Fest bike festival will hit the streets on June 1-2 and this year the Kidney Foundation of Canada has partnered with the festival. Bruce Hill, senior development manager for the Eastern Ontario chapter said the foundation felt like a natural partnership.

Aside from promoting healthy living, the foundation provides support for people who are in kidney failure, going through dialysis or kidney recipients in other ways, including financial support and hosting activities and fundraising events.

The bicycle festival is a two-day event which promotes all things cycling in this city. With multiple events taking place over the weekend, the 2013 Capital Vélo Fest Tour La Nuit is a riding event along the Rideau Canal where participants can elect to raise funds for the foundation. Hill said the foundation is not stuck to a numbered amount. “It’s not about how much we can raise, so much as that we want to raise money for the cause,” Hill said. Riders can sign up to help out the foundation by contacting Hill at 613-299-4801 or by visiting the foundation’s website at

Bettina Iraci’s 12 year-old son Dawson is currently experiencing kidney failure and has relied on the Kidney Foundation of Canada for support. The foundation has partnered with Capital Vélo Fest bike festival to help raise money and awareness.

old son, Dawson, have been named ambassadors for the event. When Dawson was born, he had underdeveloped kidneys and has undergone numerous surgeries, including a transplant when he was four, and now kidney failure. “Exercise is important for

anyone to maintain a healthy lifestyle, but for kidney patients, whether they are on dialysis, post-transplant or those that have been newly diagnosed with kidney disease it is very important as it promotes energy, makes for better sleep habits, and of

course controls weight gain,” Iraci said. Iraci said both Dawson and herself are excited about the upcoming festival. “The Kidney Foundation is always promoting exercise and a healthy lifestyle and what a better way to get that


are proud to announce

“We teach those who use our resources about healthy lifestyles, good nutrition, which is really important for people going through kidney failure or dialysis,” Hill said. “Partnering with Capital Vélo Fest for us is about sending a message about living this healthy lifestyle.” Hill said the event is meant to help out families and kidney patients in the Ottawa region.

Emerson has big ideas for Grampa’s visit


e were soon to find out why Emerson was so anxious for a visit from Grampa, who lived in Ottawa and came out to Northcote often. He drove a car with a rumble seat in it and he never failed to pile us five kids in the back and tear down Northcote Side Road like someone possessed. Only three people could sit on the seat at one time, so two of us had to crouch on the floor. That was usually Earl and me. But Grampa always stopped at Briscoe’s General Store to buy us penny candy and that’s when he made us change places so that we each got a turn on the seat. I thought it was a car like no other. The running boards had real rubber on them and there was a little patch of rubber over the back fender where you stepped to gain entry to the rumble seat. Along the roof inside the car, there were two hooks on which Grampa carried a long black umbrella. It was the biggest umbrella I had ever seen. He said he used it if rained while he was lawn bowling in Westboro. When Grampa visited, after we had our ride down Northcote Side Road, he spent the rest of his time with Mother – his only daughter

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories – who he thought didn’t belong on a farm in the backwoods of Renfrew County. It was on one of those visits that Emerson was more anxious than usual to get our ride over with and see Grampa settled in the kitchen with Mother. He made sure the teacups were on the kitchen table, the kettle was boiling on the Findlay Oval and he knew Grampa would be in the kitchen for a spell. I saw him go over to the car and open the door on the driver’s side and gently take the big black umbrella down off the hooks. I had no idea what he had in mind because it certainly wasn’t raining and it was as hot as blazes with not a cloud in the sky. It didn’t take Emerson long to drag me into the mystery by telling me I was going to have the experience of a lifetime, one I would never

forget. Little did I know how truthful those words would turn out to be. If I had had an ounce of brains I would have headed for the hay loft. But Emerson made this venture sound so exciting, I was soon waiting to see what he had in mind. We went behind the house where the summer kitchen was attached to the wood shed. Father kept a stepladder there to patch the roof when the leaks got so bad Mother threatened to head back to New York if he didn’t fix them. The shed roof was flat as a plate, and Emerson said it was from that very roof I was going to have the experience of a lifetime. Had I been a bit smarter, I would have known what he was up to with the big black umbrella in his hand, ordering me up the ladder. He was right behind me, making it impossible for me to change my mind.

He opened the umbrella, which I thought was as big as a tent and ushered me to the very back of the shed roof. He took a piece of paper out of his overall pocket. He unfolded it and scanned it as if it held some important information. All I could see was a bunch of lines and what looked like clouds. Emerson squinted, spit on his thumb and held it in the air. I had no idea what he was doing. “Perfect,” he said. “Now you hold this umbrella as high as you can over your head and run – and I mean run – and when you hit the end of the roof, you’ll go sailing off just like an aeroplane. The umbrella will carry you. I’d love to do it first, but I think I’m a bit too heavy. According to my drawings, you are the perfect weight to go soaring through the air. And don’t worry about landing – you’ll land in the grass beside the pump.” I looked at my brother, looked at the roof and looked up into the open umbrella. Before I could voice my objections, Emerson gave me a shove and I was off and running. I hit the edge of the roof in two seconds and me and umbrella were airborne. Well, it didn’t take long for the umbrella to collapse like a piece of newspaper and I landed on the hard

ground, miles away from the green grass around the pump with the umbrella covering me like a tarpaulin. I was sure I had broken every bone in my body. Father was just coming out of the barn to witness my flight and he was over to the shed in a shake. Emerson was nowhere to be seen. My knees were covered with dirt, I skinned my

Before I could voice my objections, Emerson gave me a shove and I was off and running

hand on landing and Father determined there were no broken bones. He picked up the broken umbrella and walked around the shed to the kitchen. I was right behind him. Without any explanation, he handed Grampa the umbrella and all he said was “sometimes I think that lad doesn’t have the brains God gave a goose.”

Aries, something irresistible keeps grabbing your attention. Don’t overindulge too much or you will regret the decision later on. Exercise moderation. Taurus, you may be tempted to run away from a challenging situation, but it is in your best interest to hunker down and face the problem. You won’t be going it alone. Gemini, you seem to quickly conquer tasks that others struggle with. It could be thanks to your ability to focus, but look over your work to make sure it’s correct. Cancer, while many things come easily to you, there is one particular situation that continually proves problematic. You might have to scale a few mountains to handle it.

This weeks puzzle answers in next weeks issue

Leo, this week you might be better off tackling things on your own instead of looking to others for support. This will help minimize any potential distractions. You have a few secrets you are not willing to share just yet, Virgo. That’s alright. Keeping some of your agenda private will inspire curiosity and be to your advantage.

Libra, you may be trying to get a certain person alone so you can have some one-on-one time together. A rendezvous is possible this week. Scorpio, you are at an impasse because you are second-guessing some of your most recent decisions. You may need to shift your focus to get back on track. The old adage that if you want something done right you have to do it yourself rings especially true this week, Sagittarius. Your skills are put to the test. Capricorn, there is a certain window of time this week when you will be extremely efficient and effective. The other times you may as well throw in the towel. Aquarius, you have to work out a few loose ends before you are free for a much-needed vacation or just time spent doing whatever it is that makes you happy. Pisces, sometimes love can cause pain, but this is the way to grow and learn from mistakes. There are lessons to be learned in a few days.

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!
