EMC news - Exactly 400 years after Samuel Champlain’s famous trip up the Ottawa River, a group of De La Salle high school students celebrated by retracing a small part of the journey in a handmade birch bark canoe. The students paddled near Petrie Island in a canoe held together by spruce gum and constructed with the help of Christian Pilon, a Métis canoe-maker and speaker. The canoe launch was a part of the 400th anniversary celebration organized by the Franco-Ontarian Heritage and Historical Society. “Champlain was able to come so far and up to Ottawa and further because he had the help of the Algonquins that were living in the region,” said Nicole Fortier, the historical society’s president. “So we could not do this without thanking the Algonquins and the Brier Dodge/Metroland First Nations.” De La Salle students splash water on the birch bark canoe they spent months making for the June 4 launch at See FRANCOPHONE, page 2

Petrie Island. They launched in front of local French public board and French Catholic board students during the francophone celebration of the anniversary of Samuel de Champlain’s passing.

home on St. Joseph Boulevard. Émile Major travelled through the area making house calls after opening his practice in December 1925, one that remained open for 47 years. He also worked out of the Ottawa General Hospital,

Saint-Vincent Hospital and the Montfort Hospital. Major studied medicine at McGill University and completed his internship in New York City, but was far from a stranger in the community. He was the great-grandson of Luc Major – who registered the first official plan

for the village of St. Joseph – now the St. Joseph Boulevard area. The Major family, one of the first in Orléans, arrived from Bytown in 1856. Having delivered many of the area’s children born in the late 1920s and early ’30s, he also pulled teeth, and per-

formed surgeries, and was known to forgive payments for down and out patients. Émile Major’s son, JeanMarc Major, still lives in Cumberland and is proud to be a fifth-generation Orléans resident. See HE DELIVERED page 4

Franco-Ontarian society celebrates Champlain’s voyage Continued from page 1

The French public school board funded Pilon’s visit, running the project as a part of the aboriginal culture curriculum. He put on an assembly for all the students in the school about aboriginal culture and the canoe project, and invited students to be a part of it. Students could commit to being a part of the project all throughout the year, or come in to help for an hour or two whenever they wanted. Several students worked on the project on a daily basis for several months. “Their hands were all swollen from working with the birch bark and spruce gum,” Pilon said. “They really took it seriously, and I would hear them in the hallways, sharing what they learned with the other students.” Pilon harvested the bark from around the area, and taught the students how to stitch and assemble the canoe.

“It gave them a chance to learn, and at the same time to learn that they’re indigenous from somewhere too,” he said. “From the very beginning, everyone was following nature like we do in our culture.” The canoe – which Pilon and students paddled through the water at Petrie Island during the launch – will now stay at De La Salle high school. Grade 10 student Justine Gamache-Howard, from Orléans, who is part Algonquin, was quick to sign up for the project. She became emotional during her speech to the students, detailing the hundreds of hours she spent on the project. “It captivated me totally and it was something new that I’d never done,” she said. “I was like, ‘this is a one in a lifetime chance, and I’m not going to skip it.’ I was in there every single day working on it.” The canoe launch was only a small part of the large celebration, that lasted through the day and night at Petrie Island.

Coalition ups the ante in fight against proposed landfill Geology, environment not suitable for project say citizens, councillor sabine.gibbins@metroland.com

EMC news – Citizens against a proposed landfill in the city’s south end say the geology of the land is inadequate for its purpose. During a presentation to city councillors and staff on May 30 at city hall, the Capital Region Citizens Coalition for the Protection of the Environment provided an overview of their concerns with the proposed Taggart Miller Capital Region Resource Recovery Centre (CRRRC), a 182-hectare project in Carlsbad Springs on Boundary Road. Their biggest concern, coalition volunteer and geological engineer Harry Baker said, was the geology of the site and the risk of earthquakes, particularly in that location. “This is a very active area seismically,” he said. “That’s important for us to know.” Many small earthquakes have been documented close to the Boundary Road landfill site, according to historical data, but most would never be felt by people living there. Baker noted that however small, these are not insignificant earthquakes, as it indicates there is continued stress build and stress release in the underlying rocks. “The geological conditions at the proposed Boundary Road landfill, such as a 30metre thick layer of Leda clay in a seismically active zone in which earthquakes of magnitude 6 have occurred could seriously jeopardize a wellengineered facility,” states an executive summary. “That becomes an even more credible possibility if there are faults within a few hundred metres of the site, which could, in turn, amplify the threat to people and the environment.” LEADERSHIP

Sue Langlois, president of the coalition, told those in at-

tendance the landfill site will receive waste from as far as Belleville and encouraged the City of Ottawa to put restrictions on this. While the landfill will accept 300,000 to 400,000 tonnes of industrial, commercial and institutional waste annually, Langlois said the issue the community has is not related to the capacity or size of the landfill, but rather the fact the province does not appear to have strict guidelines on diversion rates for this type of waste.

They have standards for municipal housing waste, but none for ICI waste. It just doesn’t make a lot of sense to me. COUN. STEPHEN BLAIS

“It’s our reputation on the line,” she said. “We are going to be known as the city that has the biggest dumps. It goes against a green and liveable Ottawa. We want the City of Ottawa to take a leadership role . . . those are the messages we wanted to convey.” According to their website, Taggart Miller says the primary focus of the proposed landfill is to divert waste materials away from disposal, and to provide this in a facility the city currently doesn’t have. “This multi-million dollar green industrial development will provide eastern Ontario with a leading-edge diversion facility that addresses the critical need for better recycling, composting and environmental stewardship,” states their website. They also report their project will insert an estimated $100 million over the life of the project, as well as increase municipal tax revenue, and provide employment opportu-

COUNCILLOR OPPOSES LANDFILL

After the presentation, Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais, who recently returned to city council, voiced his opposition to the proposed landfill, mainly due to the fact the province, he said, does not have any concrete standards for industrial, commercial and institutional (ICI) waste. “I’m not a supporter of this project,” said Coun. Blais. “They have standards for municipal housing waste, but none for ICI waste. It just doesn’t make a lot of sense to me.” PROVINCIAL CONTROL

The province, he said, has control over the management of this type of waste, and should have a recycling target SABINE GIBBINS/METROLAND of at least 60 per cent to avoid Capital Region Citizens Coalition for the Protection of the Environment member Sue the need for a landfill. Langlois speaks during the presentation of the proposed landfill, citing the many The project, which is in the concerns residents have with regards to the Taggart Miller-lead project. environmental assessment approval process, would place significant risks on the surrounding area, states the coalition. We have real concerns the environment would be put at risk including negative impacts on local well water, surface water, air quality, protected wildlife/forested areas and agricultural areas,” the coalition states in a letter. “Of particular importance is the long-term adverse effects on the residents of three villages in close proximity to the proposed CRRRC, which would be Ottawa’s largest landfill.” The group also believes Taggart Miller has not fully addressed the issues or acknowledged the risks associated with developing on the site. “We believe that such a facility would be a serious mistake that the City of Ottawa cannot afford,” said the coalition.

‘He delivered the babies that populated the area’: son Continued from page 1

Jean-Marc said his father helped build the community, not just as a doctor, but as a justice of the peace, health officer, coroner, secretary of the village council, school trustee and church warden. “He was not only a doctor, he was sort of a social worker,” JeanMarc said. “He was involved in all aspects of the new village, so I think it’s a good recognition of his contribution.” He remembers church parishioners crossing the street on Sundays to come and check in with the doctor, and his father fetching drugs from the basement because there was no pharmacy in Orléans yet. The first family home that his father worked out of was set to be moved to the Cumberland Heritage Village Museum, but it burned down before it could be relocated. “He delivered the babies that populated the area,” said JeanMarc. “I think it would be proper to recognize the work that he did in this area, it’s a good recognition of his contribution.” Louis Patry, president of the historical society’s naming proposal committee, said it isn’t the first project they have cam-

paigned to have named. Most recently, they advocated for the naming of the François Dupuis Recreation Centre. Ottawa-Orléans MPP Phil McNeely wasn’t aware of the naming request yet, but did remember the doctor making a house call to his own family home as a child, when his brother needed his tonsils removed. “I remember it well and we could smell the ether and we had to stay upstairs. It was my older brother Frank and I was about five and he would have been seven. It was done in the living room on the dining room table,” he wrote in an email. “That is almost 70 years ago. I think they let us see the removed tonsils. I had not thought about this for years.” A spokeperson for the local health network, the Champlain LHIN, which proposed the health centre, said it was too early to determine who would have naming rights. Carole Ouellette said that the project is currently being evaluated at the ministry level, and it isn’t known who will be in charge of forming the naming committee, so the Champlain LHIN couldn’t comment on the potential name.

Information Session Construction of Orléans Watermain – East Link Monday, June 24, 2013 6 to 8 p.m. Earl Armstrong Arena 2020 Ogilvie Road, Ottawa

R0012152379/0613

The City of Ottawa invites you to an information session about construction of the eastern portion of the Orléans Watermain Link that is scheduled to commence in 2013. Design drawings and potential construction staging drawings for the East Link will be on display for review and comment. City staff, the project consultant and representatives from the offices of Councillors Tim Tierney and Rainer Bloess, will be on hand to discuss the project and respond to questions. The Orléans Waterman Link was initially recommended in the 1996 Water Master Plan. Construction of the East link will commence in 2013 and will be completed by the end of summer in 2015. Construction work will install a new 914 mm pipe to connect the existing watermain on Ogilvie Road near Blair Place and extending eastward to connect to the existing watermains on St Joseph Boulevardand Youville Drive. Most of the alignment for the watermain will be located inside the right-of-ways on Ogilvie and Montreal Roads and will be reinstated following construction. The East link of the Orléans Watermain Link will be constructed in two phases. Phase 1 will include the watermain installation and roadway reinstatement along Ogilvie Road from Blair Place east to Montreal Road and will continue along Montreal Road to the OR 174 interchange. Phase 2 includes the continuation of the new watermain from Montreal Road along the north side of OR 174 across the NCC Greenbelt and then crosses under OR 174 to Youville Drive. From this location, the watermain will be connected along Youville Drive to existing pipes on St. Joseph and Jeanne D’Arc Boulevards. This new watermain will provide a secondary feed to the City’s east end that will significantly improve the reliability of the existing service and provide additional capacity for future growth.

Councillor wants out-of-town toll on Hwy. 174 the road’s “split� at Highway 417 is being widened this year. The toll would be justified because it is an “extremely rare circumstance� for a municipality to have the responsibility of maintaining a highway, Blais said. Most highways are overseen by the province, with a couple exceptions, such as the 174 and the Gardiner Expressway and Don Valley Parkway in Toronto. Since the province downloaded responsibility for highway 174 to the City of Ottawa in the 1990s, the city has requested several times that the province re-assume responsibility for the highway.

EMC news - Ottawa should charge out-of-town motorists for the privilege of driving on highway 174, says Coun. Stephen Blais. The Cumberland councillor is proposing the city look at making the municipally owned highway into a toll road, perhaps using an electronic toll system similar to Highway 407 in the Greater Toronto Area. People move to surrounding municipalities like Clarence-Rockland because homes are less expensive, Blais said, and then they commute west into the city for work. “Frankly, I don’t think it’s fair that Ottawa taxpayers continue to subsidize their use of the road,� Blais. “They shouldn’t consume our services for free.� Blais estimates that around 20 per cent of the vehicles on highway 174 in the morning come from outside the city’s boundaries. The number of vehicles moving through the highway 174/Highway 417 split on any given morning is around 9,200; 2,200 vehicles get on highway 174 in Clarence-Rockland each morning. “If you took those vehicles off, we wouldn’t need to widen the split,� Blais said. Highway 174 is an expensive road to maintain because of the volume of traffic it handles and the speed at which vehicles move. Aside from

meeting on June 12, or perhaps a direction for city staff to research the idea. Blais said the province would have to enact a regulation to allow the city to exercise toll-taking authority that is granted in the Municipal Act. Clarence-Rockland Mayor Marcel Guibord did not respond to an interview request before deadline, but Blais said the mayor has indicated he is open to discussing options that would see residents from ClarenceRockland share the cost of maintaining or expanding highway 174. “There is an understanding in the municipalities east of the city that this is a problem,� Blais said.

The province has no intention to re-upload it... That would be the bestcase scenario, but I don’t believe it will happen.� COUN. STEPHEN BLAIS

“The province has no intention to re-upload it,� Blais said. “That Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais wants out-of-town commuters from would be the best-case scenario, but municipalities east of the city, like Clarence-Rockland, to pay a toll to I don’t believe it will happen.� To demonstrate the city is serihelp cover the cost of maintaining highway 174. ous about this issue, Blais is working with city staff on the best way to the bus Transitway, no other Ottawa nance cost. The city is currently in the pro- approach the possibility of adding a road has as high a requirement for snowplowing, salting and pothole cess of conducting an environmental toll to the highway. The councillor planned to bring a repair, Blais said.

Dream team on the roll for Roger’s House fundraiser blair.edwards@metroland.com

EMC news – Chris Neil’s dream team won’t score many goals but they’re sure to win a few hearts. The team, made up of six children from the greater Ottawa area who are receiving treatment and respite services for life-limiting illnesses, are leading the charge for this year’s Walk Roll & Run fundraiser at Scotiabank Place on June 16. Neil and his wife Caitlyn were on hand at the Ottawa Senators home arena on May 31 to introduce the children and officially kick off the 10th-annual fundraiser for Roger’s House. “It’s so inspiring to visit the children and families at the house,” said Caitlyn. “Understanding the challenges they face every day and how they persevere is incredible.” The veteran of this year’s dream team is Isabella Carriere, an 11-year-old who has been with the pediatric palliative care centre since it first opened its doors in 2006. The Lancaster, Ont. girl has metachromic leukodystrophy, a rare genetic disease that results in a loss of brain function, and physical symptoms including muscle wasting, paralysis, blindness and dementia. There is no cure. “We go there sometimes for help when we don’t know how to treat her,” said Isabella’s mother Melissa. Last month, Melissa and her husband Stephane took Isabella to Rogers House because she was having trouble sleeping and cried throughout the night. “Now she’s sleeping good,” said Melissa. “We’re pleased.” Now in its seventh year of operation, Roger’s House has admitted more than 2,200 children from across Ontario and western Quebec battling serious illnesses. The eight-bedroom facility, located on the grounds of CHEO, provides a home away from home for the child and their family, where staff and volunteers provide treatment and respite care. Four-year-old Campbell Labonte, an Embrun boy who has cerebral palsy and is deaf and blind, was admitted to Roger’s House two years ago. “It was the best decision we could have made,” said Campbell’s mom, Joanna. “It’s provided such great support to our family; I mean we’re forever thankful. It’s a resource that we’ll always be able to use until Campbell’s 18, and for that we know it’s going to bring a lot of hope to our family.” Joanna and her husband Bert both work full-time jobs in the Canadian Armed Forces. “Roger’s House offers us that break when we need it, to just rejuvenate and feel ourselves again.” Roger’s House was a great help for Alex

Vanzyl, whose 18-month-old daughter Maci has Phelan-McDermid syndrome, a rare chromosomal disorder which impairs speech, movement and development, and requires 24-hour care. Maci is fed using a tube and sleeps hooked up to a machine to assist her breathing. “She’s deemed palliative because she needs equipment to sleep at night,” said Vanzyl. Even with the help of her mother, providing continuous care for a child with a life-threatening disease is exhausting, said the single mom from Beaverbrook. “It’s just a break for me,” Vanzyl said of the help she received from Roger’s House. “They’ll take care of her, they cuddle her they love her, it’s like extended family. “We mainly use it for respite, but there’s times when we’re admitted to CHEO and then we’ll just go to Roger’s House and stay for a bit and we’re totally comfortable and then go home.” Henry Newton, an eight-year-old Ashton boy, has been visiting Roger’s House for the past two years, receiving respite care. Henry has Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, a difficult-to-treat form of epilepsy that appears between the ages of two to three, characterized by frequent seizures. “He has hundreds of little seizures every day,” said his mother Miranda. Two years ago, Henry was able to sit up, talk and manoeuvre his wheelchair. “The seizures came on suddenly and robbed him of that,” said Miranda. He’s not really talking anymore. He’s having a hard time holding himself up.” Miranda and her husband Terry have gradually improved the situation with the help of the staff and volunteers at Roger’s House. “It gives us breaks,” said Miranda. “It gives us time to spend with the other two kids. “I don’t worry about him while he’s there. They take care of him and they look after us as well,” she added. “It’s about the whole family, not just Henry.” FUNDING

About a quarter of the home’s funding comes from the Ottawa Senators Foundation, which raises nearly $800,000 annually through events like Walk, Roll & Run. “The community has been so supportive,” said Lloyd Cowin, executive director of Roger’s House. “We really appreciate it.” The money pays for medical supplies, special equipment for the kids, bereavement support for the families and the special extras that make Roger’s House a home, such as a children’s playroom. “These families have a lot to deal with in

The 10thannual event provides money for Roger’s House’s operating and capital costs. their lives and anything we can do to help them is a real plus,” said Cowin. The number of applicants seeking a spot at Roger’s House keeps going up from year to year. “We’re afraid we’re going to go over capacity in the coming year,” said Cowin. The children’s treatment centre takes in 450 patients a year and has a case load of 160 kids at any given time. “We usually have occupancy of 85 per cent, which is about ideal for us, because it gives us a little wiggle room to deal with emergencies,” he said. The house hopes to turn its basement into a teen recreation room, with a pool table, a television set and a stereo. “Right now the playroom is younger child oriented,” Cowin said. “We’d like to have a place teens feel comfortable with.” The money from the upcoming Walk, Roll & Run will help pay for that renovation.

Let’s avoid casino tunnel vision

F

ollowing recent upheaval in the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation boardroom and a change of tact on casinos initiated by the premier’s office, Mayor Jim Watson has also made an about face on the issue. After making the case for the city to support a downtown casino, the mayor now wants to see any new gaming facilities placed at the Rideau Carleton Raceway. While this is great news for anyone connected with the horse racing industry, it should be at least a little disconcerting for many residents as once again city hall is narrowing the discussion about a particular issue. Remember the epic court battles fought by the city over the redevelopment of Lansdowne Park? Many of the arguments against the city partnering with the Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group pointed to a lack of open competition. Isn’t that what’s happening here? Like with Lansdowne, there is at least one other group interested in making a serious bid to build a casino in another area of the city: Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk, wants the opportunity to build one beside Scotiabank Place. A francophone business group has also called for an open competition for any new gaming facility. An open competition only makes sense, not only

for the bidder, but the city as well. Competition would see multiple business plans presented to the city, which staff could in turn evaluate to come up with a recommendation that makes the most sense for Ottawa. More than likely, what makes sense for Ottawa would be a proposal that maximizes gambling revenue for the city, as this is really the only reason to build a new casino – if we’re not in it to make money, we probably shouldn’t be building one at all. This is not to say the raceway can’t present a compelling business case. It has lots of land to build on and few neighbours to annoy. Area gamblers are also familiar with the existing slots, so there is an existing customer base. The biggest drawbacks to the site are a lack of growth potential due to its distance from downtown and the lack of transportation infrastructure. Downtown, on the other hand, doesn’t suffer either of those problems. Downtown’s biggest problem is the lack of a ready-made site. Melnyk’s potential plan would fall somewhere between the two: ample space, good transit links and location near Highway 417, but also not near the city’s major tourist hub. These are the factors that need to be considered by the city, and by narrowing the potential sites to just one, Watson is effectively neutering this discussion.

Considering the what-ifs of Ottawa baseball

T

he future of minor league baseball in Ottawa is connected to series of what-ifs. What if the stadium had been built on LeBreton Flats where, heaven knows, there’s still lots of room for it? More recently, what if someone had thought about baseball when Lansdowne Park was being redesigned? And most importantly, what if the city hadn’t allowed the stadium parking lot on Coventry Road to become hotels? Sure, there are other questions. One of them is whether baseball, as a spectator sport, has simply had its day. When the Ottawa Lynx thrived in the mid-‘90s, baseball was not only popular but trendy. The Lynx Stadium was the place to be seen and frequently sold out. Not many years later, only die-hard ball fans could be found there. How many of those are left and are they being replaced? Obviously, there are people who think so, and bless them. There is hardly a day goes by that someone isn’t talking about moving one Double-A franchise or another into the stadium, so someone must have confidence that the game can return to its former level of glory in this city. If not glory, at least enough people in the

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town stadium to fill a good-sized parking lot. Which brings us back to the most important what-if. There have been various attempts to bring baseball back since the Lynx left town to become the Lehigh Valley IronPigs in 2007. All ran into the same problem that plagued the Lynx in their last days: not enough parking. The kind of beautiful Sunday afternoon that would bring capacity crowds to the stadium would find many potential members of those capacity crowds vainly searching for a place to put their cars. Too many gave up. It’s not a problem easily solved. It would be unfair to allow nearby residential areas to be overrun with cars. Given the amount of space left on the original parking lot side, underground parking or the construction of Published weekly by:

a parking garage would seem to be the only ways to solve the problem. Both are expensive, and risky, considering that no one really knows if baseball will attract the desired number of fans. Ultimately, the what-if game is pointless, since previous mistakes can’t be unmade. For whatever reasons, the stadium is in a bad location and doesn’t have enough parking. The city can’t remove the hotels. Writing the stadium off and moving baseball to another location would be hard to take after the amount of money that has been spent. But ... what if the stadium were at LeBreton Flats, with lots of space for parking, lots of public transit, close to downtown restaurants and bars? Someone actually did think of that back in the day, but the National Capital Commission said no. Surprise, surprise. Or, what if a new stadium was built in conjunction with a new casino? That would certainly put lots of tourists in the vicinity and some of them might be willing to desert their slot machines for a couple of hours to watch a ball game. But that’s a no-go too: the association, physical and otherwise, of baseball and gambling has been rightly frowned upon for years.

What if baseball had been included in the Lansdowne redevelopment plan? That would put the ballpark within walking distance of a substantial number of fans. And those fans would have places to walk to after the game. The problem there is that Lansdowne is tied to football and football stadiums do not lend themselves to baseball, either for the fans or the players. Anyone who has ever seen a baseball game at Exhibition Stadium in Toronto can vouch for that. Oddly, optimism persists in some quarters. It would be nice to think that it is justified. Baseball will never dominate the life of this city, but its lack has certainly been felt.

The caring approach to discipline

O

ne of my children is going through a “no” phase lately. The daily Q&A goes a little something like this: Mom says, “Could you unload the dishwasher?” Son says, “No.” Mom says, “Get your pyjamas on; it’s time for bed.” Son says, “No.” For a while I thought the best way to get him out of the “no” phase was to say “no” myself more often. Son says, “Mom, can I have a birthday party?” Mom says, “No.” Son says, “Can I bring my soccer ball to school?” Mom says, “No.” But after a few weeks of mom-in-the-negative, things started to get really out of hand. Instead of just a defiant “no,” my son was getting into full-scale, raging temper tantrums. I spent a lot of time thinking

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse about what to do. My husband and I would talk about our frustrations. But mostly, we were coming up empty. It wasn’t until I remembered the “We Care” approach to parenting, advocated by my aunt and uncle, that I came up with an answer. The “We Care” approach grounds every disciplinary action into a caring act. It’s not easy, but when you’re forced, as a parent, to think about being caring rather than angry, it can make the

difference between a defiant child throwing a tantrum or one who storms off to consider his actions in silence. The latter, of course, is preferable. It goes something like this. Mom says, “Unload the dishwasher, please.” Son says, “No.” Mom says, “It’s important for everyone in the house to help. I’d like you to unload the dishwasher so I can focus on making you supper before your soccer game. Otherwise, it’s going to be

very difficult for all of us to do what we want to do, which is get to soccer.” You see how that works? You give the kid some justification for your actions and when he realizes how loving and caring his parents are, he kind of feels bad and recognizes his own selfishness. The “We Care” approach can also be effective when you’re responding to something negative. Let’s say, hypothetically, your son happens to kick a plush soccer ball at his baby sister’s head. He knows he’s in trouble, so he goes into pre-emptive strike mode, throwing a tantrum about how the baby is always in the way of his game. Instead of “freaking out,” which, to be honest, is my instinctive reaction, the “We Care” approach demands I say, “I’d like you to comfort your sister and think

about a better place to play with the ball. I care about both of you. I really want you to be active and have fun, but I need your baby sister to be safe. It’s a lot more fun if you play in the basement, where there’s no baby.” The “We Care” approach may sound simple, but it demands a lot from the parents. You have to be present. You have to be reflective. Mostly, you have to resist the urge to scream your head off, demand the child leave the room, and deliver empty threats or punishments. A tall order. But it really is great. And your kids will come to respect you more for it, especially because the “We Care” approach can be surprising to them. My son was so used to mom saying no, for example, that he was ill-prepared for my response when he refused to empty the

dishwasher for the third day in a row. “Go ahead,” I said. “Ask me if I’m going to rearrange your dentist appointment so you can go on your year-end school trip? Ask me if I’ll pay $15 out of my own money so you can go?” “You’ll say no,” my son shouted, “because I won’t do the dishwasher!” “Just ask me!” “Will you rearrange my dentist appointment and pay $15 so I can go on my year-end school trip?” “Yes,” I shouted, “because I care about you and you’ve worked hard at school this year and I think it’s important for you to have fun with your friends and celebrate.” “Okay, mom,” he said, “I’ll unload the dishwasher.” And that my friends, is the “We Care” approach to parenting at its best.

Right now, the community association members are looking to see how many volunteer pickers and homeowners with trees would be interested in the program to see if it is viable. “This is a way of connecting people that line to do canning and freezing and can use some of that fruit,” Gillanders said. Anyone interested in picking or providing fruit can contact the community association by visiting www.bcha. ca and selecting “Contact us.”

“A lot of trees just sit there with apples, and they fall on the ground and rot,” she said. She got the idea from a Fruit Share program run in Winnipeg, where volunteer pickers are able to benefit from the fruit and share with community groups. Last year, the Winnipeg fruit share had 201 volunteers picking fruit from 153 homes. Similar programs run in other Canadian cities.

The arrival of an ice box was like Christmas time

U

ntil that fateful day in the middle of summer, Mother had no choice but to keep the perishables on a swinging shelf in the dug-out under the house. It was a dank and frightening place and could only be entered from the outside. There was no trap-door in the kitchen like Aunt Bertha had on the next farm, only two big doors tilted against the house that had to be lifted to gain entry. It was a place I hated with a passion and Mother too never quite got used to putting butter and milk on the swinging shelf. Blocks of ice were put in big tubs down in the dugout in the hope that what Mother put down there would be kept chilled enough that we all wouldn’t die from food poisoning. Of course when the ice melted, the big tubs had to be hauled up and emptied, a job for my big strapping brothers. But it was Grandfather who changed all that one day when he came out from

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories Ottawa and ordered Father to hitch up the wagon and head into Renfrew. Of course, Grandfather had no intention of riding all the way into Renfrew sitting on a rickety seat on a wagon. He drove ahead in his rumble seat car, telling Father where to meet him. Everett went with Father to help. The purpose of his trip into town was to buy Mother a brand new Barnett ice box. “Uncivilized! That’s what it is!” he said time and again on his regular visits to the farm and when one of us kids was sent down into the dug-out to bring up milk or butter or anything else that Mother hoped would keep fresh long enough so that we could eat it. We always had had an ice house and it was always full

of blocks of ice, but never until that wonderful day, did we have an ice box to put the blocks in. Mother spent the entire morning trying to come up with a decent place to put the ice box in the kitchen. It had to be well away from the Findlay Oval, of course, and it couldn’t sit in the window looking out into the grape arbour -- that’s where the old pine table sat and where we had our meals. Finally, without even knowing what it would look like or what size it was, Mother decided it would go kittycorner next to the little room off the kitchen that served as Mother and Father’s bedroom. So that place was scrubbed by Audrey, wiped dry, and newspapers laid out covering

the entire corner. For reasons unknown to me at the time, Mother made all of us change from play clothes into our next-to-Sunday best -- was it because we were getting an ice box or was it because Grandfather would be there for a visit? At any rate, we were spit-clean when Grandfather drove back into the yard and said the new ice box would be here as soon as Father could get back from Renfrew. Mother, in a clean Dan River dress and a fresh white apron, sat on the back stoop waiting for its arrival, with Audrey and I perched on the pump stoop. Grandfather brought out a kitchen chair to the yard. He wouldn’t sit on anything that wasn’t spotlessly clean in case he got a mark on his white flannel pants. It was like we were waiting for the Queen to arrive. Then we saw the wagon round the corner at the far end of the lane and as it got closer we could see Everett standing with his arms wrapped around what looked like a casket standing on its

end. Father pulled the wagon up close to the kitchen door. “My oh my,” Mother said, not even waiting until it was loaded off onto the ground, she leaned into the wagon and rubbed her hands all over the new ice box like it was made of gold. It took the three brothers and Father to lift it off the wagon, with Grandfather telling them to be careful and not scratch it. It was shiny wood, the colour of caramel candy, with silver handles, and I thought was grand enough that it could easily have sat in the parlour. Without even being told, Everett tore to the ice house, and using the big black iron tongs, hauled a block of ice into the house. It was beastly hot in the kitchen with the Findlay Oval pumping out heat and I secretly wondered if the ice box would cool off the whole house. Emerson swung open the little door on the side, and Everett plopped in the block of ice. Audrey and I were sent down to the dugout for all the perishables and Mother

arranged it all in the ice box like she was laying out blocks for a quilt. Grandfather had thought of everything. While in Renfrew he bought an exact duplicate of our white granite dish pan and he slid it under the ice box to catch the drip. We sat around the ice box on kitchen chairs, as if waiting for it to tell us something. It sure looked mighty nice in the corner and I could tell Mother was as proud as if someone had bought her a new car. What a change the new ice box brought to our old log house. Now we had it as well as a telephone, thanks to Uncle Lou. Emerson wondered what we had to do to get running water, and I longed for the day we could just push up a switch and a light would go on just like at my little friend Joyce’s house. Sadly, water from a tap and light from a bulb were not to be. Both would have to wait until the day we left the farm many years later.

Orléans News EMC - Thursday, June 13, 2013

EMC news - As the mercury begins to rise, Canadians are looking for innovative ways to keep both the temperature and energy bills down. One of the best kept secrets to achieve this is the heat pump, a mechanical system that draws heat from the air, or from the earth and transfers it into the home or vice versa, depending on the season. Heat pumps work like refrigerators since they use fluids to transfer heat energy from one place to another. That’s why, if you put your hand behind a refrigerator, it is hot. The heat is all the energy that’s been transferred from inside the fridge to outside. A heat pump works the same way. A ground source heat pump that is connected to the earth through a distribution loop allows for a transfer of heat from under the Earth’s surface to the interior of the home and, in the summer, from the home to the ground. So despite the name, heat pumps don’t only replace

fuel-burning furnaces or boilers; they can also act as air conditioners. Because they require no purchased fuel, geothermal (ground source) heat pumps can provide considerable savings over the life of a home. Modern heat pumps can provide up to 75 per cent of a home’s heating needs. The installation of a geothermal system is a significant project, however, which requires specialized training and knowledge. Although the up-front investment can be sizeable, so too is the return on investment, providing many years of reliable, low-cost heating and cooling for your you and your family. If you’re looking to invest in an environmentallyfriendly system for heating and cooling a house or building, consider a geothermal heat pump. Be sure to consult with a licensed, qualified contractor to ensure that a heat pump is the appropriate solution. News Canada

Epic walk

The Orléans pair of Debora Blais, left, and Deborah Chaudhari aren’t shy about showing off their pink as they prepare to participate in the Epic Walk.

Above: Team Maxwell, made of up Nepean’s Kristen Scissons, Bruce Rosewarne, Alexandra Scissons and Robynn Scissons prepare to start the Epic Walk. The team members were some of the 200 people who participated in the 28-kilometre Epic Walk for Women’s Cancers on June 1, from the Irving Greenberg Family Cancer Centre at the Queensway Carleton Hospital to the Cancer Survivors Park, located near the Ottawa Hospital general campus. The walk raised more than $240,000. Left: The Legally Pink team, from Brazeau Seller LLP, showed up decked out in matching outfits for the Epic Walk. From left, Lauren Seller from Nepean, Trina Fraser from Nepean, Sarah Kaplon from Kanata, Jeysa Martinez from the Glebe, Kerry Leeks from Kanata and Erin Figueiredo from Kanata were just some of the members of the large group participating.

Strawberry honey lassi a healthy and refreshing drink EMC lifestyle - A creamy refreshing, cleansing drink that is a version of the Indian yogurt and fruit drink, called lassi. It can be a nice finish to a spicy hot meal or an interesting drink idea if serving a slightly spicy meal. A lassi is of great importance in the Indian diet, because it contains fat, protein, lactose, calcium and phosphorus. It has been said in Indian literature that regular consumption of lassi drinks reduces the chances of your hair going white before it is time. Preparation time: 10 minutes. Serves: six. Makes 1.5 litres (six cups). Ingredients

• 750 ml (3 cups) halved strawberries • 500 ml (2 cups) non-fat vanilla yogurt • 125 ml (1/2 cup) milk • 125 ml (1/2 cup) light coconut milk

• 50 ml (1/4 cup) liquid honey Pinch each ground cardamom and salt • Fresh mint sprigs Preparation

In blender, or large plastic jug using handheld blender, combine strawberries, yogurt, milk, coconut milk, honey, cardamom and salt until smooth. Pour into six tall glasses

and garnish each with mint sprig. Make Dessert Fun Tip: Strawberry honey lassi pops. Divide mixture evenly among ice pop molds or small paper cups. Insert wooden sticks and freeze until solid, about four hours or up to one week. To remove, dip bottom of molds in warm water for four seconds.

Free workshops, concerts at city hall this summer Staff

EMC news - The city will bring some life to the Rink of Dreams “patio” with a series of events throughout the summer. From yoga to concerts, dance lessons to programs for kids, Marion Dewar Plaza on the Laurier Avenue side of city hall will come alive this summer. The plaza is now home to the outdoor winter rink, which becomes a large oval cement patio in the summer. That space remained largely unused during its first summer season since it was constructed in 2011, but the city has prepared an action-packed schedule for the space this year. In a press release, Mayor Jim Watson said adding ongoing events and programs to the plaza will help bring more people to city hall – something he has been trying to promote in this term of council. The programming is free of charge and will run from July 9 to Aug. 27. No registration is required. The following programs will run through the summer:

Tuesdays: • 7:30 to 8:30 a.m.: YM-YWCA Outdoor Boot Camp • Noon to 1 p.m.: hatha yoga • 2 to 9 p.m.: Summer Art Market • 7:30 to 9 p.m.: Circus Jam Wednesdays • Noon to 1 p.m.: Taoist tai-chi • Noon to 1 p.m.: performances by Odyssey Theatre • Running clinics (times to be determined) • 6 to 11 p.m.: outdoor salsa dancing, sponsored by Azucar! Latin Dance Company and Salsa Force Thursdays • 7:30 to 8:30 a.m.: Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health’s Pow Wow Pump • 6 to 9 p.m. July 11 to Aug. 1: Be in the Band (in partnership with RBC Bluesfest) The space will also host a number of on-time events this summer, including a roller-derby weekend, a silent movie night, Chamberfest musical concerts, Creative Mornings events and more. Watch ottawa.ca or follow @ottawacity on Twitter for more information.

Oil exhibit at Nature Museum Ottawa East News staff

EMC news - Crude oil, while a naturally-occurring substance, is more commonly associated with man-made landscapes. Highways, subdivisions, urban sprawl and vehicle culture all stem from the abundant possibilities inherent in fossil fuels, but the changes they can bring to natural landscapes can be jarring. Visitors to the Canadian

Museum of Nature can now view images of these unique landscapes following the unveiling of its new photo exhibition, Edward Burtynsky: Oil. Burtynsky is a renowned photographer who has spent much of his career depicting industrially-transformed landscapes. He was named an Officer of the Order of Canada in 1997. Oil has been exhibited in museums worldwide, and

will be on display in Ottawa until Sept. 2. Comprised of 56 large-scale photographs, the exhibition depicts the lifecycle of oil and mankind’s dependency on it through images of oil fields, refineries, and the landscapes of consumer culture derived from it. The Canadian Museum of Nature is located at 240 McLeod St. More information of the museum and its exhibits can be found at nature.ca.

Phase Seven, available now, is a grouping of 44 spectacular lots backing onto the 12th and 17th holes of the Loyalist Country Club, an 18-hole championship course that will be hosting a PGA Canada Tour event in 2014. Each home purchase includes membership to the club, providing access to clubhouse fitness facilities, billiard room, library, member’s lounge, outdoor swimming pool and hot tub, for a minimal annual fee. Homeowners also receive a discount on golf. “These homes not only back onto spectacular links, they also offer easy access to boating, fishing and water sports on Lake Ontario,” said Custance, noting that the area is like a mini Ottawa. “We have

culture, sports, dining, recreation; whatever interests you, you’ll find it here.” The latest phase features six detached bungalow and bungalow loft floor plans ranging in size from 1,415 to 2,922 square feet. Boasting large rear-facing windows, front and rear covered porch areas, and views of scenic fairways, they are priced from $364,990. Exterior features include maintenance-free quality siding with brick and stone elevations; painted architectural trimmings; maintenance-free aluminum soffits, fascia, eaves troughs and downspouts; and, fully graded lots with sod. Interior highlights include crafted cabinets in kitchens and bathrooms; quality ceramic tile; luxury 35 ounce broadloom; and, oak pickets and handrails with oak stringers on stairs to second floor.

Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais presents a cheque from the city for $50,000 to Sue Langlois on behalf of the Capital Region Citizens Coalition for the Protection of the Environment.

Residents receive $50,000 to fight dump Brier Dodge

brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - A group opposing the Capital Region Resource Recovery Centre has received $50,000 from the city to help fight a proposed dump in Carlsbad Springs. The city asked for applications for intervenor funding they made available for community groups in the winter. In order to apply, groups had to have at least 50 group members and proposals for the technical experts and costs they would like to hire. The Capital Region Citizens Coalition for the Protection of the Environment have also been known as Dump This Dump 2, after the Dump The Dump group formed to oppose the

original sole-proposed site in Russell, Ont. A second site was later proposed in Carlsbad Springs, and was announced as the preferred location. Sue Langlois, the coalition’s president, said that they want to hire experts able to review and give input on the environmental assessments that Taggart-Miller, the company proposing the recovery centre, is completing. “The problem that we have is we’re not experts,” Langlois said. “So we’re looking to use that money to hire these experts.” Right now, the coalition is looking for a hydrogeologist and lawyer to provide input on the proposed dump. Some groups opposing similar projects have spent up to half a mil-

lion dollars, Langlois said. The group has been doing fundraisers over the winter and spring, and plans to continue. Through pancake breakfasts and sports tournaments, they have already raised about $10,000. “It is going to require significant funding; we’re really thankful to the city for the $50,000, but there’s no way that will enable us to do a full peer review,” she said. Taggart-Miller held an open house on June 5, but the coalition’s members did not go inside to attend. They are opposed to the format of the open houses – with poster board displays, versus a presentation followed by an opportunity to ask questions – so they rallied outside instead.

Ottawa played host to both divisions of the high school provincial rugby championship at Twin Elm Rugby Park in Nepean on June 5 to 7.

The tournament saw the top rugby teams from all over the province arrive in Ottawa, including four National Capital teams: St. Peter High School, Hillcrest High School, Glebe Colleigate Institute and Ashbury College.

EMC news - After sitting idle for months awaiting a potential minor league-level tenant, a new city report indicates the Ottawa Baseball Stadium could open up for community use this summer. Released on May 28, the report indicates the city needs to revisit the conversation surrounding leasing opportunities for the stadium, adding that the parks and recreation department will take over programming at the facility this summer and fall. The latest development in the ongoing saga comes as good news for the surrounding community, president of the Overbrook Community Association Sheila Perry said. “It’s been a shame that nothing is going on there,” Perry said. “This is good news, but we wonder if it’s too late in the season for anything. It seems it’s at the last hour.” According to Dan Chenier, general manager of the parks and recreation department, bookings are already under way and use will begin in the later part of June. There is no deadline regarding the bookings, but they are done on a first-comefirst-served basis, for casual use only. The report calls for the city to allocate $50,000 in onetime funding to support this programming. The city has suggested such uses could include ultimate frisbee, cricket and baseball leagues. Opening up use of the facility to the community comes after a year of failed negotiations between the city and Beacon Sports Capital Partners to bring a AA baseball team to Ottawa. In February 2012, coun-

The doors remain closed at the Ottawa baseball stadium in Overbrook, but the city announced on May 28 that it intends to open the facility this summer and fall to community groups and sports leagues on a casual use basis. cil approved a report that allocated $5.7 million to give the Coventry Road stadium a major upgrade, including the installation of artificial turf. On direction from city council, staff entered into negotiations with Beacon Sports to form a renovation plan and a lease agreement with an AA baseball franchise. According to the latest report, city staff and Beacon Sports met numerous times over a five month period following the initial approval. Three potential groups negotiated to lease the stadium, but all eventually backed off because of renovation costs, now estimated between $10 to $30 million. Now staff is calling for the parameters surrounding finding a new tenant to be broad-

ened, stating the city needs to take a broader approach to turn the stadium into “a family-friendly entertainment destination that is anchored in professional baseball, but also offers other amenities.” FACILITY REPAIRS

The facility has not been upgraded since it was built in the early 1990s, but some improvements and maintenance has started. According to Peter Radke, manager of the city’s realty initiatives and development department, since February 2013 the only work being completed is the final waterproofing of exposed concrete. Additional work being considered for 2013 relates to electrical, mechanical, and

fire and life safety elements of the stadium that must be completed, regardless of tenancy. The report indicates it would cost around $250,000 The last tenants, the Ottawa Fat Cats, leased the facility from April 2010 to September 2012 on a year-by-year lease. A former general manager of the club, Duncan MacDonald, said the organization paid $108,000 to rent the facility. During that time, the organization paid for all the maintenance and upgrades, which MacDonald said was around $250,000, which was also paid for by the club. “We paid all the bills,” MacDonald said. “We paid rent in full and in advance and then began fixing up the facility.”

where the rubber hits the road - literally.

The first thing the organization did, MacDonald said was spend $30,000 just to have the plumbing fixed. The fact that a once stateof-the-art facility is falling apart has Rideau-Rockcliffe Coun. Peter Clark upset. “I was a part of that stadium getting built,” Clark said. “We were proud of that stadium; letting it lapse and fall into disrepair, was an error.” Overbrook resident Peter MacFarlane is a long time Ottawa Stadium fan and a ticket holder since the doors opened in 1993. He said he is saddened to see the stadium in its current state. “As a teacher, I took my students through one of the first tours of the stadium,” MacFarlane said. “Looking at it now -it’s totally frustrating,

it’s not that it isn’t useable, it’s perfectly useable.” MacFarlane said he partly blames the city on how it handled the stadium, noting that he does not understand why the city sold a portion of the stadium’s parking lot. He also questioned the city’s treatment of the stadium’s former tenants. “The Fat Cats put their necks on the line; I don’t believe the city treated them well, certainly not when it came to them wanting to bring in other events,” he said. “The Fat Cats wanted to bring in community events and now the city is saying that’s what they want to do? I don’t understand.” Perry said the community association had a great relationship with the former tenants, including working together on community events. “The Fat Cats did their very best, we were partners, and that is what you want. And again if the city doesn’t want that, then we really are stuck,” she said. This news of a new round of negotiations has the community feeling hopeful, Perry added, but at the end of the day, the group is simply looking for the truth. “What do they want? It’s easy to say this failed, and that failed, and I fully expect at the end of the day it will be developed,” Perry said. “I just want the city to be honest. Be honest city. And engage the community.” Teams and organizations interested in booking the Ottawa Baseball Stadium can contact city-wide allocations. Casual bookings are done a on first-come-first-served basis. Staff is available from Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. by phone at 613-580-2595, by e-mail at sports@ottawa.ca or in person at Ben Franklin Place, 101 Centrepointe Dr.

Fans treated to Canada vs. Fiji match at Twin Elm Brier Dodge

brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - Fans packed Twin Elm Rugby Park on June 5 to see the Canadian rugby team take on Fiji. Rugby fans, and players competing in the high school boys provincial rugby championships, packed the stands to see the Pacific Cup match. And despite the massive size of the Fijian players, the Canadians pulled out a win in front of the hometown crowd, with a small 20-18 margin. Canadian team captain Phil Mack said the defence had to be prepared for Fiji to score from any point in the field because of their explosive power. But at the end of the day, the Canadians were more organized as a team on the field, prompting Fiji head coach Inoke Male to say his team needed to be more prepared next time. “We knew Fiji was going

to play a wide open game and we needed to get our defence right to beat them,” Mack said. “We’ve done a lot of work as a team ... it paid off.” Rugby clubs in Ottawa had offered discount and group rugby tickets to their players, who were vocal throughout the game, leaving no doubt which was the home team. “When we really get tired out there and the crowd amps it, it just really gives us that extra boost,” Mack said. “It’s something in Canada we’re not really used to.” It was the first time ever that Canada had beat Fiji at home. Rugby fans were happy to see Ottawa included on a stop, as it’s not often they get to see this level of 15-A-side rugby. The Barrhaven Scottish RFC has their 10 and under players do a rugby demonstration game at halftime. The under-10 players use

flags like flag football instead of tackling. Carleton University player Mandy Musse said that games of this level help promote the sport in Ottawa and make people ask questions about both the rules, and how to get involved. “It’s amazing. I think it attracts people to the sport and creates a big buzz for Ottawa. It helps a lot,” said Musse, who also plays club level rugby in Ottawa. Prior to the game, the family of late Barrhaven Scottish player Rowan Stringer was welcomed. A moment of silence was held for the John McCrae teen, who died this spring following a head injury sustained in a rugby game. Minister of Sport Bal Gosal and Rugby Canada officials presented the Stringer family with a signed Canada jersey. The Canadian team were scheduled to play their next games in Kingston and Ireland.

Orléans News EMC - Thursday, June 13, 2013

EMC lifestyle - Walking into the first of Bob Mitchell’s several sprawling greenhouses, the sweet, earthy smell of ripening tomatoes takes over your senses. For a brief moment, it’s just you and the fruit. You’re filled with a sense of hominess, of nostalgia for your grandmother, or the proud memory of the first vegetable you ever nurtured. When you come back to reality, you start to look around and you can hardly believe your eyes. Row upon row of leafy tomato plants climb toward the soft, filtered light coming in from above. The greenhouse seems to stretch on forever. Little technology gets in the way of nature’s beauty; the stems grow from plasticsheathed blocks of crushed coconut in raised troughs and are clipped to small rods above. Small pipes wind along the floor, masked by green tangles of sagging vines. Every so often a bumblebee lazes by, off to pollinate another plant or return to one of the hives placed throughout the greenhouse. Mitchell, the owner and founder of SunTech Greenhouses, on Doyle Road south of Manotick, somehow fits

into the greenhouse ecosystem, despite a brusque manner and a penchant for loud exclamations. The lifelong farmer moved to a dairy and cash crop farm south of Kenmore when he was six, which he farmed with his family until 1998. And then he entered a greenhouse for the first time in his life. “The smell, that was what hooked me,” he said. From that visit in September 1998, it took 11 months for Mitchell to buy the Doyle Road property, set up a greenhouse that covers a hectare, and plant 22,000 beefsteak tomato plants. “Just a starter kit,” Mitchell laughed. Today, the farm has 1.6 hectares of greenhouse facilities and produces 11 different commercial products. That includes several tomato varieties as well as eggplants, cucumbers, peppers and green beans. NATURE’S WAY

While SunTech certainly doesn’t profess to be organic or pesticide free, it makes use of what nature has to offer. A common greenhouse pest is the white fly, a tiny white bug that can multiply into the billions. As they drink the juices from the plants, they

excrete everywhere – and that can prevent the plants from getting the sunlight they need. But instead of spraying plants with chemicals, Mitchell brings in 40,000 encarsia formosa, a tiny parasitic wasp that lays its eggs in white fly eggs – essentially stopping the reproduction cycle. “You don’t pay them by the hour and they don’t miss,” Mitchell said. Bumblebees are another important part of the greenhouse ecosystem. Brought in from Windsor, Ont., Mitchell’s bees are relied upon to pollinate the tomatoes. The number of bees loose in the greenhouse directly correlates to the number of open flowers, Mitchell said. There are usually two or three bee stings a year, he said, but as the chief bee handler he has managed to escape a sting for nearly 14 years. Of course, the whole point of a greenhouse is to get around Mother Nature’s whims, and SunTech employs a complex computer system to monitor the indoor and outdoor temperatures and adjust the roof vents accordingly. The average daily temperature inside is about 19 degrees, Mitchell said, and they can harvest about 10 months of the year.

Get ready to go zip-zip-zip lining steve.newman@metroland.com

Florida, Costa Rica and Nicaragua are destinations for zip line enthusiasts. But you won’t have to travel that far for exhilarating zip line experiences, which are growing in popularity in North America. Ownership of Logos Land Resort, just outside Cobden, is hoping a significant investment in its new three-leg, zip line course will bring smiles and goose bumps to many more of its customers in coming years. Challenges Unlimited Inc. is completing construction and installation of a parallel zip line course over Astrolabe Lake this month. The course warms up nicely, with the first zip carrying visitors 201 metres across a small bay. Zip No. 2 runs 343 metres across the middle of the lake, before the final 401-metre leg returns buckled-in riders back above the water. The total ride is 3,100 feet, or almost one kilometre, at speeds of up to 35 km/h, usually six metres above the water, but sometimes closer to 25. Logos Land owner Jerrold Paxton’s business partner, Kevin Cahill, died last December, but not the dream to continue to improve on what Logos Land offers its customers. Facilities already in place include the water park, with its slide, splash pad, grill house, mini-golf, animal petting farm, beach and giant lake trampolines. There are also timeshare villas, motel suites, 90 recreational vehicle (RV) park and camp sites, rental RVs, 100 wilderness camp sites for trailers or tenters, and the neighbouring Oaks of Cobden golf course.

“We have four goals in mind,” says Logos Land director of marketing and sales Fred Glover. The first goal is to offer something, like the zip line course, that caters more to older youngsters. “We’ve made investments in recent years for the little kids, like the petting farm and the splash pad,” says Glover. “But for older kids, as families grow up, you don’t want them to hit the boredom curve.” The same philosophy applies to younger adults. The connection of the zip line for these potential customers also happens to coincide with the ideal weight for zip line passengers. The weight allowance runs from 75 to about 275 pounds. The second marketing goal, says Glover, is to expand Logos Land’s season, which for the longest time has been concentrated in July and August. “The zip line can be used year-round, but more practically it will certainly run in the summer, as well as in the spring and fall.” Logos Land has already experienced positives vibes about the new course. For example, response at the recent Ottawa RV Show, which attracts more than 20,000 visitors, was extremely positive. “Our big posters stopped them,” says Glover. “It surprised us, especially the positive verbal feedback from 40-, 50- and 60-year-olds. But we’ll see for sure this summer.” Glover acknowledges there’s another zip line, at Chutes Coulonge, while pointing out that Logos Land Resort aspires to become a growing part of multi-activity tourist packages in the area, thus Logos Land’s third

marketing goal. For example, there’s no reason tourists can’t zip over Astrolabe Lake, play golf rounds at a variety of courses in the area, see the Bonnechere Caves, zip some more in Chutes Coulonge and try some whitewater rafting or kayaking. Unlike Logos Land, Chutes Coulonge offers two zip lines of 100 and 260 metres over whitewater rapids and a shorter nine-zip series. As Glover says, “Every zip line you see is different.” The area’s newest zip line, says Glover, will be simple, safe, exhilarating and an atSteve Newman/Metroland tractive addition to what Lo- The project manager for the Logos Land zip line is Dave Humphrys of Challenges Unlimgos Land already offers. ited.

The zip line will increase local employment. About a dozen staff will be hired to run the facility. Zip-liners will wear a helmet and gloves while holding on to a harness that is hooked Sensational to a pulley attached to the zip line cable. Reaching the platforms is easy, via stairwells.

Five simple tips before hitting the road EMC lifestyle - Summer getaways are common indulgence in Canada and for the more than four-in-five of us who own, lease or finance a vehicle, exploring the Great White North often begins with the push of a pedal. Whether your plans include cross-country road trips or a weekend exodus to the cottage, here are a few tips to keep your vehicle looking and running its best on the open road: • Keep it clean: Starting a road trip with a clean car is a must, but be eco-responsible. Always look for products that are designed to be tough on grease, bugs, mud and carbon deposits, while still being safe for the environment. • Check your wheels: Make sure tires are road-trip ready. For better handling and mileage, swap winter tires for summer ones, or all-season types. Check the pressure of the tires before you take off by consulting the owner’s manual or on the side of the tire. Properly inflated tires improve grip on the road and

save money at the pump. • Top up fluids: No one wants to be stuck on the side of the highway. Having proper levels of windshield washer fluid, engine oil, radiator coolant and brake fluid can make or break a road trip. Check the owner’s manual for the recommended fluid levels. Remember overfilling your fluids can do just as much damage as not filling up enough. • Get rid of the salt: As the temperatures rise, so does the rate of corrosion and after a full-season of battling snow and slush, the chemicals used to clear roads can eat away at a car’s body. Keep your car looking and running its best by getting a professional rust protection at least once a year. • Take it to an expert: Stay safe and avoid unforeseen expenses by following your car’s recommended maintenance schedule. See a professional to give you the green light for long-distance travel. newscanada.com

Bank Street BIA prepares to launch marketing campaign Steph Willems

steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - The Bank Street Promenade has been kicked to the soon-to-bepressure-washed curb as the strip’s business improvement area prepares to put a new face on the district. The 1980s branding, which the Bank Street BIA admittedly never liked, will be removed and along with a spruced-up streetscape will be replaced with the slogan “Downtown. At the intersection of everything.” A new logo, a host of seasonalthemed promotional posters, and a determined BIA staff will all conspire to lure shoppers into Bank Street businesses. BIA members unveiled the new branding and campaign materials to media on May 29 at their temporary presentation centre at 226 Bank St. The city’s LRT project and the recent influx of condo projects (and condo-dwellers) in Centretown prompted the BIA to change its image and adopt a more aggressive approach. “Because of the new con-

Bank Street business owners and BIA members are seen launching the organization’s new promotional campaign on May 29. From left, David Nixon of Edible Arrangements, Stephen Tanner of Staples Business Deport and Kevin Martin of Stroked Ego. dos moving in, there is a much younger demographic, (and) we’re trying to cater to that group,” Suzanne Racine, assistant director for the Bank Street BIA. “We have a wall (in the

presentation centre) of five things people want to see on Bank. We’ve had tons of people come into the store to let us know what they want in the area. We are going to make a hotlist of things to have, and

will be forwarding it to the property owners - and offering a $5,000 bonus to any property owner who signs a deal from the hotlist of stores we want.” Racine said the BIA wants

to exert more control over the retail component of the area. In addition to the pressure washing, a painter will be employed to spruce up store frontages wherever possible, and businesses will be able to take advantage of the BIA’s facade improvement grant program. The Bank Street BIA encompasses the 15-block stretch from Wellington Street to Gladstone Avenue and was formed in 1977. Before that, according to BIA co-chairman Stephen Tanner, a merchant’s association existed, making it one of the oldest BIAs in the city. When it formed and subsequently brought in the Bank Street Promenade branding, Ottawans were fleeing from the inner city to the expanding suburbs in droves. Now, the opposite seems to be happening as younger people flood back into the downtown area. “I saw the good days of Bank Street, which was a very vibrant place before the shopping malls came,” said Tanner, a life-long resident of the city. “I think Bank Street has taken a lead in making sure

that all of the new condos and the new residents…are going to be looked after. I honestly believe that now is the time for people to rent these stores along Bank and get in on the ground floor.” The extensive reconstruction of Bank Street a few years ago, which brought with it new streetscape and underground infrastructure, was a “necessary evil” despite being challenging for businesses, said Racine, as it created the conditions required to bring thousands of new residents into Centretown. Racine said the BIA would like to see a flagship store enter the retail mix along Bank. Suggestions from the public have highlighted the need for a women’s clothing store, a hardware store or specialty deli and cheese shop. Five storefront vacancies currently exist along that stretch of Bank, ranging from 800 to 2,700 square feet. The rebranding campaign comes as the nearby Rideau Centre embarks on a largescale expansion project, which is expected to wrap up before the completion of the downtown LRT line in 2017.

Actress Sandra Oh to receive Key to the City ‘We are proud to call her Ottawa’s own’: Mayor Jim Watson EMC news - Ottawa-born actress Sandra Oh will be presented with the Key to the City by Mayor Jim Watson in recognition of her significant contributions and accomplishments, both nationally and internationally, in the field of the performing arts. On July 8, Oh will receive the key in a ceremony at city hall. “Sandra Oh has earned accolades as a talented actress who is dedicated to her craft and respected by both peers and critics alike,” said Watson. “We are proud to call her Ottawa’s own, and have her serve as a role model to aspiring performing artists in Ottawa and around the world.” Born in Nepean, Oh got her start on stage as a ballet dancer at the age of four, but shifted focus to acting after performing in the Knoxdale Public School play The Canada Goose, when she was 10. Oh was involved in arts, sports and politics at Sir Robert Borden High School where

she served as student council president and founded the environmental club Borden Active Students for the Environment. While still attending the National Theatre School of Canada, Oh competed with 1,000 hopefuls for the lead role in The Diary of Evelyn Lau. She got the part and the Cannes FIPA d’Or for Best Actress for her portrayal of the young Chinese-Canadian poet. She later starred in the stage productions of David Mamet’s Oleanna at the Grand Theatre in London, Ont. and the National Arts Centre, Diana Son’s Stop Kiss and Satellites at New York’s Public Theatre and Jessica Hagedorn’s Dogeaters at La Jolla Playhouse. Oh is best known for her role as Dr. Cristina Yang on the popular medical drama Grey’s Anatomy. Her work on the show garnered her a Golden Globe Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award and five

Emmy nominations. She has also starred in feature films Sideways, Under the Tuscan Sun and Rabbit Hole. Oh has won two Best Actress Genie Awards for the Canadian films Double Happiness and Last Night. She received a star on Canada’s Walk of Fame in 2011. Oh joins an exclusive group of people who hold the Key to the City, including author Margaret Atwood, photographer Yousuf Karsh and the Community Foundation of Ottawa. The Key to the City was first presented in 1935 by His Worship Stanley Lewis to Lord Tweedsmuir, governor general of Canada and his wife Lady Tweedsmuir.

Mutchmor parking situation still up in the air Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Before the Ottawa District School Board turns a portion of Mutchmor Public School’s yard into a parking lot, the Glebe Community Association has asked the board and city to work together on finding a better solution. The Ottawa District School Board is preparing to renovate and expand Mutchmor Public School in the Glebe to deal with overcrowding in downtown schools, part of a plan commonly known as “the switch.” The “switch” would swap programs and school populations between two Glebe public schools and add 11 classrooms to Mutchmor. As a result of these plans, the association has asked for space to accommodate school staff parking at the cityowned lot located between Second and Third avenues, west of Bank Street. Sharon Chartier of the Glebe Community Association said this proposal is being entertained by both the board and the city. “We have asked the board to put the extra parking spots in the parking lot and pay for them at the board’s expense,” Chartier said. The cost to the board would be $130 per month, per pass. At the moment, the discussion surrounding the number of spaces required has ranged as high as 43 and as low as 21. This proposal, Chartier said, is all in an effort to save the school field at Mutchmor. The board has put forward the option to pave a portion of the field to fulfil parking needs at the school. Michael Clarke, the board’s superintendent of facilities, said the board will continue to work with the city and

community to try and find a workable solution. “Our goal is to reach a collaborative decision that will benefit all involved,” Clarke said. “We understand that the community wants an answer now, but at this point we remain in discussions with the city and no decision has been. It would be premature to state that a deal has been reached but we are moving forward.” At a meeting in January, Clarke said the parking issue is separate from the overall expansion project, and is subject to a separate public consultation. At the time, Clarke said as a result of the expansion, 17 spaces will be left at the school, but the expanded building will require up to 43 to address the increase in staff. Those remaining spots, Clarke said at the time, would need to be off-site, but close to the school. According to the community association, the Glebe had less than 50 per cent of the city’s standard for city parkland. The Mutchmor Field (between Third and Fourth avenues) is the property of the school board, but it is because of the lack of green space Chartier said the field sees more than 300 hours of programmed activities and a total of 6,000 children use the space in programs offered by the Glebe Neighborhood Activities Group. Two community-supported ice rinks are located on the field in the winter. In the summer outdoor, exercise activities and the Ottawa International Soccer league use the space. The neighbouring Corpus Christi School also uses the yard. Chartier added that the committee has been talking with teachers and both parent councils about the parking proposals.

Parents of First Avenue Public School and Mutchmor Public School students attended an information session about the expansion of 11 classrooms to Mutchmor. “The teachers have been a part of the conversation,” she said. “They do know we all want to find a solution and that we don’t want our close relationship disrupted by parking.” “The switch” proposal turned out to be the preferred option among parents and was approved in December 2011 - however at the time,

the discussion of turning the playing field at the school into a parking lot never came up, Cartier said. She has heard from various parents that if they had known this would have been the battle they would not have agreed to “the switch.” One resident at the meeting even asked if they could stop the switch all together.

To build the addition, the board requested $7 million. New renovations are estimated at $5 million through a capital grant, $1.3 million for upgrades to the existing building with the remaining $700,000 funded through the ministry of education’s capital reserves. So far they have secured $1.3 million for upgrades to

the current school building. They received $4.6 from the capital grant and the $400,000 gap in funding has left certain portions of the project up in the air. The expansion will be a total of 789 square metres and construction will take between 11 and 14 months. Construction is aimed to start this September.

Girls Night Out raises $90,000 for hospice services Jessica Cunha

jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - The seventhannual Girls Night Out in support of hospice services was a smashing success. More than 800 women attended the sold-out event in support of Friends of Hospice Ottawa. The soiree, held at Algonquin College on May 31, raised just under $90,000, with funds still being counted on June 4. “It’s amazing, I’m just so thrilled,” said Lisa Sullivan, executive director of Friends of Hospice. “Everyone is having fun.” Women of all ages enjoyed the evening’s festivities. Firefighters escorted everyone to their tables while entertainer George Thomas had ladies dancing on chairs, leading conga lines and vying for the bragging rights of “best table.” Linda Brown, a Richmond resident, attends the event every year with the other women in her family. “We have a really good time,” said Brown. “And it’s a good cause.”

AWARENESS

The funds raised during Girls Night Out – a volunteerorganized event – will support the hospice’s operating costs, which account for about $1.7 million a year. “The awareness piece is really important,” said Sullivan, adding that without fundraisers, “We wouldn’t have the services we do.” Friends of Hospice Ottawa is a palliative care registered charity, serving residents of Kanata, Stittsville-Goulbourn, Nepean, West Carleton, Manotick and Kars. The hospice offers inhome, caregiver and bereavement support, as well as a day hospice, transportation, community education, emergency residential care, and provides information and referrals free of charge to terminally ill clients and their families. The organization recently bought Trinity Presbyterian Church on McCurdy Drive to help co-ordinate all its efforts under one roof. The sale closes in June. “We’re going to slowly start moving in,” said Sullivan. So far, around $1.6 mil-

lion has been raised for the new hospice facility in south Kanata, but at least $6 million is needed to complete the project, which will include a residential wing for hospice beds. “The support we get from all of you, I know we’re going to be able to do that,” said Sullivan.

A new bylaw requires clothing donation bins to display information about where contributions are going and must have a working phone number.

New bylaw in effect for donation bins Jessica Cunha

jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - A new bylaw came into effect to regulate clothing donation bins on June 3. Whether on public or private property, the bins must state if they are affiliated with a charity, which one it is collecting for along with the registration number, and must have a working phone number, said Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley, who first raised the issue in 2011. Bins must also state if they are collecting for a for-profit business. “If you see a box that’s overflowing or you want to call to see what exactly they’re doing with the stuff you give them, there has to be a working number,” he said.

“Most importantly, they now have to have the permission of the landowner.” Before the bylaw was put into effect, donation bins were just “showing up,” he said. The Salvation Army and Neighbourhood Services are both charities approved by the city, said Hubley. “Because they’re local charities and they’re doing things to help our community.” Hubley added that people can now make an informed decision when donating their clothes. “Now you’ll know where your stuff is going and it’s up to you what you want to do,” he said. Bylaw officers will be checking donation bins but if people notice something that isn’t in compliance with the

new bylaws, they are encouraged to call 311 and report any discrepancies, said Hubley. “I would encourage people to take a look at the sign on those boxes and make sure that they comply with the bylaws.” Hubley first raised the issue about clothing bins in 2011. At that time, the Jubilee Donations bins – especially one at Jack Charron Arena – were of particular concern, Hubley said, because they are not emptied regularly and it’s not clear if Jubilee is a registered charity. Hubley called the phone number listed on the box and determined that Jubilee is a storage company. With files from Laura Mueller

Feds announce national anti-bullying campaign jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - The federal government will fund the training of 2,400 youths from across Canada to deliver antibullying workshops. Each youth facilitator will commit to reaching another 20 young people in their communities to help prevent bullying and discrimination. The Canadian Red Cross will receive $250,000 from the federal government to continue its youth-led Stand up to Bullying and Discrimination project. Canadian Heritage Minister James Moore announced the money for the program – which is expected to reach more than 50,000 Canadian youth – at A.Y. Jackson Secondary School in Glen Cairn on June 3 with Laureen Harper and Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley. Hubley’s late son Jamie attended A.Y. Jackson before taking his own life after being bullied for his sexual orientation, which had led to a deep depression he couldn’t overcome. “Communities across this

country, including this one, have been deeply affected by tragedies related to bullying, cyberbullying and intimidation. And there are far too many tragedies,” said Moore. “If we do nothing, it will lead to the death of children … It can’t be said more plainly or more accurately than that.” Cyberbullying through social media is a reality many adults never had to face. “Our kids now face pressures that really didn’t exist when I was growing up,” said Harper, who is married to Prime Minister Stephen Harper. “As parents it’s very hard to help our children because their experiences are so different than anything we had. “That’s very scary as a mother.” CREATE HOPE

Three youth-led forums in the Atlantic region, Ontario and British Columbia will also reach out to 150 youth to step up and help put an end to bullying. “Actions like this announcement today (are) what

we need to be successful,” said Hubley. “Canadians, such as my family, have paid too high a price and (we need) meaningful progress before other families must carry the burden of losing someone special, like my boy Jamie, who only wanted a safer community for everyone. “With the help of the Red Cross and other frontline workers, we can create hope for a better day.” Hubley pledged to do “everything I can” to have at least one student from his ward receive the training, which is offered to students between the age of 13 and 17. “We cannot expect someone else to solve this issue for us. Success will take each of us doing our part,” he said. “By supporting young people to become leaders in their schools and communities through programs like this, we will create safer places and communities for everyone. Let’s join together and say it’s time to turn bullying on its head.” Jessica Cunha/Metroland The funding is provided The Canadian Red Cross will receive $250,000 from the federal government to continue through the government’s its youth-led Stand up to Bullying and Discrimination project. The announcement was Youth Take Charge program. made at A.Y. Jackson Secondary School in Kanata on June 3.

PET OF THE WEEK My name is Nikou and I am a 4lb 5oz, 13 year old Abyssinian. I was adopted from the Cornwall SPCA at one year old and live very happily in Ottawa. I am very personable, love everyone who comes to the house, and run when I hear the doorbell to greet guests. Everyone who visits wants to take me to their house but of course my family will not allow it. The only thing I do not greet is other cats or dogs, on my property.

a warm, snuggly lap to curl into for some love and attention. Freckles would love an owner who knows that she has an affinity for wand toys and toys on strings, what would be even better is if you would take some time to play with her daily! Meet Finnegan (A150704), a very special 13-year-old, neteured male, brown tabby, Domestic Shorthair cat who is in foster care due to recurrent upper respiratory tract infection while here at our shelter. Finnegan was surrendered to the shelter by

his owner on November 2, 2012 and is ready to find his permanent family. He is a lovely gentleman with great house manners. You can often find him spending time with people, curled next to them on the couch, or snoozing in a sunbeam. Finnegan takes some time to warm up to people, but with time has started to figure out that humans make for great friends, as they usually give into his charm and offer ear scratches. Finnegan has even learned that the foster family’s cat and dog are okay too! Finnegan is a “Special Needs” adoption as there is the slight possibility that he will suffer from a chronic low grade cold that may require ongoing medical management. We encourage you to discuss Finnegan’s special needs with your family veterinarian so that together you can help him live a happy, healthy life. If you are interested in finding out more about Gus, Wiz or the other pets available for adoption from the Ottawa Humane Society, visit www.ottawahumane.ca , call the Adoption Centre at 613-725-3166 ext. 258 or e-mail adoptions@ottawahumane.ca.

Do you know where your cat is? What may be desired is not necessarily the safest... Even though cats may love to have the freedom of running around outside, so too would dogs whose freedom we strictly control. In fact, small children would relish the opportunity to roam freely all day, with little or no regard for their safety. In today’s world this freedom is just not possible. Society has established many rules for our protection. We wouldn’t think of allowing our small children to go outside alone where they are exposed to many dangers, yet many cat owners readily open the door for feline friends to go out unsupervised not knowing if they will return the same day, the next day, or ever. Are you a good neighbour? Time to make Another factor to consider, besides your cat’s safety, is your cat’s effect a grooming on the environment and the nuisance he or she might unwittingly create appointment for neighbours. Cat fights are noisy and offensive; unneutered cats breed indiscriminately; their spraying and feces are pollutants; they get into garbage; ruin gardens; cause car accidents; cause damage to a car’s paint

job; spread diseases; kill wildlife; and in some cases, inflict wounds on people and other animals. Is this freedom? Outdoor cats are not free. They fight a daily battle for survival against exposure to the elements, accidents, disease, poison, abuse and fights with other animals, theft or loss. On average an outdoor cat lives approximately three years while the lifespan of a cat that has been kept indoors (and supervised while outdoors) is approximately 15 years. The OHS recommends that you keep your feline companion on a harness or under supervision when outside. Have a microchip implanted in your animal as a precaution against loss. A microchip will supply your pet with identification that lasts a lifetime. Harness training is a safe way to allow your cat to experience the pleasures of the great outdoors. To learn more about how to harness train your cat, visit the Companion Animal Tips section on our website, www.ottawahumane.ca. Ensure your cat’s safety. Your feline companion and your neighbours will thank you for your effort!
