Business - The empty movie theatre in the Orléans Centrum will have a new tenant, Ciné-Starz, owned by Montreal’s Bruce Gurberg. The announcement was made at a press conference at the old city hall in Orléans on June 27. The theatre is expected to open mid-July, and will run movies that are several weeks old to keep costs down. It will be a discount-style theatre, with the slightly older movies meaning cheaper ticket prices. Adult tickets are expected to be $5 to $6. The former tenant, the Mayfair Theatre, closed this year after financial issues and unpaid rent forced them out. Ciné-Starz currently operates a theatre in Gatineau, and plans to expand the Ciné-Starz Orléans into a six-screen theatre. As there are currently three screens, it will open up with three, and expand to include more as renovations take place. One of the new screens will be 3D. Tax breaks

While there is a Community Improvement Plan for St. Joseph Boulevard in place – which allows tax relief following renovations and expansions – Coun. Bob Monette said that there are no tax breaks yet planned for the theatre. He said the renovations will go ahead whether or not a tax break is approved at a later

date. Gurberg will meet with city’s economic development staff to see what breaks he may qualify for. “He will bring more life to the town centre and it will benefit the new restaurants,” said Monette during a press conference organized to announce the new tenant. Gurberg said his focus is making sure the movie theatre is able to offer tickets and snack bar items at a lower cost than other cinemas. “I don’t want it to feel like you need to take out a second mortgage to go to the movies,” he said. Because the theatre in Gatineau shows feature films in French, he said a lot of Orléans residents travel to Gatineau to see those movies. The theatre in Orléans will have both French and English films, as well as some independent movies. “Today’s announcement is great news … for the 10 new employees who have already been hired,” said Mayor Jim Watson, who also attended the press conference. EMPIRE ORLÉANS

Orléans is home to one other movie theatre, Empire Cinemas, on Innes Road. The same day the new tenant for the Centrum theatre location was announced, Empire Cinemas announced they were selling their theatres throughout Canada. The Innes Road location was purchased by Landmark Cinemas of Canada, which operates Landmark Xtreme cinemas.

First episode of Amazing Race to air on July 15 Continued from page 1

The show has already been filmed and begins to air July 15. “I don’t want to be identified as the guy with the disability, but it is part of my identity,” he said. It meant packing two sets of feet for the filming of the show – walking feet and running blades – depending on what activity they had to do, and extra socks for his limbs. They also had to make sure that no challenges on the show risked one of his prosthetics flying off midway through. In the reality show, teams of two travel across the country, completing challenges along the way.

“We had a little bit of head-butting. I’m the oldest, so I always think I’m right.” Jody Mitic

In the American version, the last team to get to each checkpoint is eliminated. Jody isn’t allowed to answer most questions about his actual time filming the show. “Watch on July 15,” he’ll answer to most questions about the outcome. He wasn’t even allowed to tell friends and most family that he was competing on the show while it was being filmed. Instead, he said he was going on a trip across the country with his brother. While the pair have grown up together, it wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows for the brothers, who auditioned with the motto “They are the Enemy and We Shall Destroy Them.” “We had our growing pains because we’re both a little alpha,” Jody said. “There might be a few moments where there will be a lot of beeps (over swearing).” Jody originally applied with another friend, who had to pull out. Cory and Jody filmed a new audition video, and the competitive brothers were selected. “We had a little bit of head-butting. I’m

the oldest, so I always think I’m right,” Jody said. “Once we finally got our groove, we did good.” Whoever wins the Amazing Race takes home a half million dollar prize. Jody knows how well he did, as the full show has already filmed, but isn’t allowed to say. He’s planning on getting a big group of friends together to head to an Orléans sports bar to watch the first episode, and expects his army friends to start texting and emailing him anytime he’s shown doing something they can make fun of. His wife – one of the few people who he was allowed to tell about the show – and two young daughters will join him to watch the show. He hopes it will show other amputees that there are few limits to what you can do after getting prosthetic limbs, and hopes it can connect him with more people who want to push their own limits. “It can be lonely being the guy in the city, or in the room, who had his leg blown off,” he said. “I’d like to get on there and encourage some more people. I’d like to go for a run with another amputee.” Since Jody retired from the military, he’s worked as a motivational speaker, and launched a charity called the Never Quit Foundation. The foundation provides support to amputees, especially emergency responders or military members. The first episode of the Amazing Race airs on July 15 on CTV.

Federal funding aimed at human trafficking Jennifer McIntosh

jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - The federal government hopes to have an impact on human trafficking in Ottawa. Rona Ambrose, the federal minister responsible for the status of women announced that $200,000 would be given to Persons Against the Crime of Trafficking in Humans Ottawa at a June 24 event at city hall. “This project will help to support the safety

of women and girls in our nation’s capital,” Ambrose said. “Our government is taking action to protect the most vulnerable women in Canadian society. We are doing this through action plans, new laws and essential women’s projects.” Ambrose added the federal government recently launched a national action plan to combat human trafficking. To improve the safety of women and girls across Canada who are targeted for sexual exploitation. The money will fund a two-year study that

aims to prevent trafficking through education and collaboration. PACT Ottawa, along with the Ottawa police and Crime Prevention Ottawa will be working together to compile the data. Consultations within the community will aim to find gaps in programs. Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches said there have been charges of human trafficking laid by the Ottawa police in the past and he supports the initiative because it will work with stakeholders to protect the city’s women and girls. “Our organization is committed to ending the victimization of women and girls that results from the crime of human trafficking,” said Christina Harrison, director of project imPACT

for PACT Ottawa. “We are pleased to partner with the Status of Women Canada and local agencies on this timely project, which will focus on vulnerable girls and young women from varied socio-economic backgrounds.” Insp. Uday Jaswal, who will be the lead on the project from the Ottawa police side, said it can be hard to identify trafficking victims because of under-reporting. “I think there’s also a wealth of information in the many agencies locally that provide support for victims of human trafficking, but they don’t often get a chance to collaborate,” he said. The project will be entitled Working Together: Engaging Communities to End Violence Against Women and Girls.

Community encouraged to report gang-related activity Sabine Gibbins

munity is the answer. To that end, we as a community need to address the broader social factors at play.” “Effective anti-gang efforts begin with partnerships among parents, schools, law enforcement, religious institutions, community organizations, businesses and youth. And to successfully address the gang phenomenon, we need to develop a comprehensive gang strategy, involving several components: early identification of at risk individuals, education, prevention, diversion, suppression, exit strategies and community involvement.”

sabine.gibbins@metroland.com

News - Gangs may be on the rise in the city, but residents shouldn’t be alarmed. The Ottawa Police Service’s Direct Action Response Team squad paid a visit to the Hunt Club Park Community Association’s meeting at the Conroy Road Public Works facility on June 25. When asked by a resident if gang activity was growing, Sgt. Marco Dinardo said he believed it was, but reassured those in attendance police had cleaned up some trouble spots in the past, such as Russell and Walkley roads. “It takes a whole community to take back the city streets,” Sgt. Mark MacMillan said. DART monitors gang activity and educates the public about gangs within the city. Members of the squad also come up with strategies to prevent criminal activity. DART works alongside members of the organization’s guns and gangs unit. “Whenever there is an area that has problems with gangs, we will go in as fast as we can to try and clean it up,” he said. Several residents asked about which communities had gang activity. MacMillan said while activity is prominent throughout Ottawa, and it’s not easy to pinpoint the exact location of a group as they tend to spread out into subgroups. Of the 15 to 19 known gangs in the Ottawa area, there are approximately 400 members associated with them. One of the groups, the Crips, originated in Ottawa’s south end, and now operates a series of subgroups across the city. The Hunt Club Park area itself is bordered by the Canadian National Railway to the north, Conroy Road to the west, Hunt Club Road to the south, and Hawthorne Road to the east, representing a population of 8,500 people.

Sabine Gibbins/Metroland

Sgt. Marco Dinardo of the Ottawa Police Service’s DART unit told residents at a meeting last week gangs attract members of the community from similar cultural and ethnic backgrounds. he said. Gangs are a complex issue, said police Chief Charles Bordeleau in a statement.

“They involve at-risk youth and men and women in organized crime groups. We know that a multifaceted solution that involves the entire com-

HISTORY OF GANGS

In September 2000, Ottawa police began to see evidence of the re-emergence of gangs and gang activity. Police were reporting more serious violence, with guns and drugs becoming more prominent.

When it comes to the definition of a gang, said MacMillan, there has been much change over the years. Symbols and common names spray painted on facilities or structures are not often spotted around the community as much, as gangs are becoming smarter when it comes to evading police, he added. “You don’t see too much of that anymore, it’s not like what we used to, but it’s still there,” he said. He urged the community to continue reporting on any suspicious behaviour in their community. “If we are trying to suppress and curb gang-related violence in the community, it’s not done by us alone,” said MacMillan. “It’s a community issue.” He told residents they need not be overly alarmed about gangs, but to keep an eye out for each other, as gang-related activity affects everyone.

Quarry Glen A ROCK SOLID COMMUNITY.

DIVERSION

MacMillan said DART has two teams of investigators which vary in numbers, who try to divert any dangerous activity in a neighbourhood, such as criminal possession and trafficking of firearms. Most members are young adults, the majority of whom have had multiple run-ins with the police over many years. “We know all the gangs – that’s part of our responsibility with the Guns and Gangs Unit,” said MacMillan. Dinardo said young people join gangs for socio-economic reasons as well as for the opportunity to be a part of a group. “A lot of the times, they’re from broken homes,” said MacMillan, adding most of the time, they “hang out” instead of engaging in extracurricular activities like sports, because of strained family relationships, They also have low self-esteem,

Byelections only delay inevitable

B

yelections are traditionally an opportunity for voters to protest public policy and punish the government. But Premier Kathleen Wynne has taken it one step further by scheduling five byelections on Aug. 1 – a couple days before the start of a long weekend – and in effect punishing the voters, by staging a vote during the dead of summer. The byelections were triggered by the resignations of five Liberals, including former premier Dalton McGuinty, long-time MPP of Ottawa South. The scheduling of the byelections is a little suspicious -- is the government hoping to escape the lash of the voter by staging them during a time that will attract the minimum number of people? We’re not talking about the dyed-in-wool Liberal/ Conservatives/NDP supporters, the kind who would cast their ballots in the middle of a hurricane. No, the timing of the summer byelection is aimed squarely at the balance of the electorate: the undecideds, the swing vote and, of course, the cottage country enthusiasts. In a perfect world, every Ontarian would take it as their duty to vote in every election, be they federal, provincial or municipal. But we don’t live in a perfect world, and we

only need to look at the dismal turnout for the last provincial election to prove that. A byelection figures to attract a remarkably smaller crowd. When scheduling an election, a government should endeavour to hold it during a time period designed to attract the most people possible. Unfortunately, this is a truism that only holds if the government actually wants people to vote. In fact, Premier Kathleen Wynne wants to avoid an election – byelection or general – for as long as humanly possible. For the few months she’s been in power, the fledgling premier has been bailing water for the Good Ship Liberal, cleaning up the mess left behind by Dalton McGuinty, who resigned shortly before the government was hammered with scandals, such as the gas plant fiasco and a police investigation of the Ornge air ambulance service. Meanwhile, the electorate waits with baited and steaming breath, looking to wreak vengeance on the Liberals by cleaning house in the next general election. While we commend the political acumen of our premier, she might want to consider simply biting the bullet and holding a general election – not during a civic holiday – as soon as possible. To do otherwise is just delaying the inevitable.

Coming soon to a corner store near you – or not

T

here was some excitement in the newspapers recently over the possibility of beer and wine being sold in corner stores in Ontario. This is always a big story whenever it reappears, as it always does. A good guess is that it is a big story because beer and wine are important to journalists, the people who make the decisions about what’s a big story. It’s not important because journalists like beer and wine more than the next fellow does. It’s important because journalists think it should be more important. There’s a self-image thing at work here. Newspaper people have long had the reputation of being hard drinkers. For some reason they like that reputation, even though it has long ceased to be deserved. Once it certainly was, but these days, if you go out to lunch with five newspaper guys, the heavy drinker will be the one ordering Perrier while the others all have tap water. Anyway, beer in the corner store becomes a big story, just like the ones that say wine is good for your heart. Wishful thinking is what it is and journalists are just as capable of it as anyone else. This year’s version of the big story carried the headline “Sousa won’t rule out store

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town alcohol sales.� This is a bit of a tipoff that beer and wine in corner grocery stores isn’t much closer than it ever was. When a politician is asked a question and won’t answer definitely one way or another, the journalist’s last resort is to ask: “Would you rule it out?� Very few politicians dare to rule anything out completely, because they need to leave room to change their minds. So they say no, they wouldn’t rule it out, and you get a headline like that. Charles Sousa, the finance minister of Ontario, told reporters that there are no plans to change the structure of the Liquor Control Board of Ontario. His predecessor as finance minister turned down a request only a year ago to allow convenience stores to sell beer and wine. But then -- “asked repeatedly

Wednesday whether he’d allow convenience stores to sell booze, Sousa wouldn’t rule it out.� He wouldn’t rule it in either, despite being asked repeatedly, and probably for good reason. No one has come up with much in the way of justification for making the change. Customers aren’t suffering from the current system. In all but the most remote areas, no one is very far away from a Beer Store or an LCBO. The main impetus for the current discussion is the Mac’s convenience store chain, which says it will create jobs. It might also create trouble, which is probably why previous Ontario governments haven’t ruled the idea in. It is difficult enough now to keep booze out of the hands of underage drinkers and those who have had more than enough in an evening. Putting the corner store into the picture is going to increase the difficulty. Sure, the idea of creating jobs is nice, but the people in those jobs will have an unfair burden placed upon them. While employees for the LCBO and the Beer Store are wellpaid and well-trained to handle difficult situations, is it fair or realistic to ask the same of a convenience store employee, often working alone late at night?

If some greater good was involved, maybe that would be worth the risk, but it is difficult to see where the greater good is. Shorter distances, longer hours? Certainly Charles Sousa’s predecessors have had difficulty seeing it. They might even think that Ontario has more urgent priorities, even if wine really is good for your heart. The only remaining question is why, given all this, Sousa is not more unequivocal on the subject. It may just be that he understands his role in the press conference games journalists play. I wouldn’t rule that out.

be the least expensive option. But that argument only holds if we only think about value in terms of money. What if we actually took the time to consider the value of the natural environment? The trees and wildlife east of downtown and bordering the Ottawa River are not merely nice to look at. They are essential to the emotional, intellectual and physical well-being of city residents. This is especially true as we collectively face the challenge of maintaining and altering a city that will accommodate our aging population. Mayor Jim Watson is devoting a lot of his personal energy these days to the examination of a city that will be senior-friendly. An aging population means health care costs are set to increase. It means that senior-friendly housing needs to be top of mind for developers. It means that any transit plan put

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse for the province’s rejection of the Kettle Island plan. That’s often been on the lengthy list of arguments against the bridge proposal. But top of mind for residents and the politicians that represent them has been the impact a bridge would have on the natural environment bordering the Aviation and Rockcliffe Parkways. Despite this, for years, the National Capital Commission has undervalued the impact of the bridge on sensitive

ecosystems in the area. More importantly, it has ignored the integral role of nature to the people that live in the surrounding neighbourhoods. Instead, the NCC continued to fork over millions of taxpayer dollars to an outside consulting firm, with the Kettle Island proposal predetermined as the best option. Unfortunately, as with so many things in modern society, the primary reason Kettle Island has been the favourite is because it was predicted to

in place will have to be accessible for people with varying disabilities. All these things are important. Also important is to have a city where not just seniors but all residents can have easy access to the natural environment. There are a vast number of studies that link human connection with nature to everything good: people that have parks nearby are more likely to actively commute, have lower blood pressure, lower BMI, fewer health issues overall and better overall mental health. Even those with mental health issues -- depression, attention deficit disorder and stress -- have found that regular interaction with nature mitigates symptoms. As the city and province go forward, as proposed by Murray, to create a master transit plan, we can only hope that nature is considered, at minimum as the least important most important thing.

nyone who has watched Mad Men religiously for six seasons, as I have, will remember Don Draper’s classic line: “We’re creative, the least important most important thing there is.” I was meditating on this line during my morning run on the Rockcliffe Parkway and it occurred to me that, in a different context, “the least important most important thing” to humans is our natural environment. Last month, the Ontario government officially killed the plan in its current form to construct an interprovincial bridge at Kettle Island. I’m sure the cheers in my neighbourhood were heard across the city when the news broke. At the announcement, held in front of the Montfort Hospital on June 17, Transportation Minister Glenn Murray cited the interruption to ambulance traffic as one of the primary reasons

Canadian soldiers head to Netherlands for 160-km march nevil.hunt@metroland.com

News - Canadian soldiers will walk in the footsteps of their forefathers when they visit the Netherlands later this month. Over four days, members of the Canadian Armed Forces will cover 160 kilometres on foot as they take part in the International Four Days Marches Nijmegen. All 178 members will wear their standard uniforms and carry a pack weighing at least 10 kilograms as they walk the same terrain where many Canadian soldiers died while liberating the Netherlands during the Second World War. The Nijmegen marches began in 1909 as part of the training for Dutch soldiers. The four-day event has since become an international phenomenon, drawing both civilian and military walkers. This will be the 61st year that members of Canada’s

military have been part of the four-day march. Many of the soldiers who will walk from July 16 to 19 met at the Canadian War Museum on July 3 for a departure parade attended by Rochus Pronk, the deputy head of mission at the Dutch embassy. “This is the largest walking event in the world,” Pronk said to the soldiers gathered at the museum. “There will be about 45,000 people from all over the world.” Pronk said that 7,600 Canadians died liberating his nation. “The Netherlands remains forever thankful,” he said, adding that the walk symbolizes “the rock-solid bonds of friendship” between Canada and the Netherlands.

Former Nepean MP David Pratt, now a private consultant, was on hand to wish the marchers farewell at the war museum. Pratt wore his medal from the 2003 march, which he completed while an MP and chair of the defence committee. Pratt said he fondly remembers the response of the Dutch public when the Canadian contingent passed. He also remembers walking about 500 kilometres during training for the Netherlands march, and watching some Canadian soldiers cut the boots off their swollen feet when they finished the march. “It’s one of the toughest things I’ve ever done,” Pratt said of the four-day march. “I salute everybody taking part. It’ll be a life-changing experience.” Canadians can follow the Canadian soldiers on Facebook as they march in the Netherlands. Search for “Joint Task Force Nijmegen.”

Lasalle, 38, is a sub-lieutenant and a cadet instructor who works with the 96 Dundas Sea Cadet Corps, near Hamilton, Ont. He said he applied to be part of the Nijmegen march for three reasons – most importantly to “honour the sacrifice” of Canadians killed in action. “I also want to demonstrate to the cadets the aims of the program,” Lasalle said, listing physical fitness as a key aspect of being a cadet. He said he also wants to meet the test of marching 160 kilometres over four days. “It’s just psychological,” he said of the challenge. “The body is ready.” To get in shape, Lasalle gets up early twice each week to cover 10 kilometres before work. He also meets the 10 other members of his team one evening every week and every Saturday and Sunday for longdistance marches. The team’s training started in January on an indoor track and moved outside as the weather improved. Since then the team has walked in all kinds of weather, including scorching heat. The weekend team marches begin and end in London, Ont., and Lasalle said, unlike Ottawans, Londoners aren’t used

The Company of Fools launches its 10th year of Shakespeare in the park with the Merry Wives of Windsor in Strathcona Park on July 3.

Let the foolishness begin Theatre troop hits parks again this summer Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - A Company of Fools is once again hanging out in parks for your comedy pleasure this summer. The theatre troop opened up its 10th Torchlight Shakespeare season on July 3 in Strathcona Park with The Merry Wives of Windsor at 7 p.m. The fools, who travel across the region and perform in community parks all summer long, for a ‘pass the hat’ fee offer patrons the chance to view a Shakespearian play under the stars. “In 2003 the Fools created what has since become our signature event – the annual Torchlight Shakespeare series,” the Fools posted on its website. “This event makes Shakespeare accessible by taking it out of the theatre and into neighbourhood parks each summer, allowing the Fools

to bring our unique brand of Shakespeare right to your back yard.” In keeping with the company’s foolish-fun, only six actors will take on the roles of more than 15 characters for the play. The play will be directed by Cartriona Leger and will run from July 3 to Aug. 17 with a 7 p.m. start time each evening; the suggested donation is $15. Donations are accepted after the performance. The company will be visiting city parks from Orléans to Stittsville and every where in between. The Company of Fools is Ottawa’s oldest professional Shakespeare Company and to celebrate its 24th year in operation and the 10th anniversary of the torchlight series, the festivities will continue into the fall this year with Torchlight Too: Hal & Falstaff. This second Torchlight will

offer an adaptation of Henry IV Part 1 and 2 with bits of Henry V and Richard II thrown into the mix. The play will be adapted and directed by founding Fool, Margo MacDonald. This indoor production will tour to three different venues from Sept. 2-22. Tickets will be “Pay what you can” donation but audiences will have the option to purchase tickets in advance, guaranteeing admittance, by booking ahead on Eventbrite.ca for $20 per person. Both the summer productions will feature the same group of talented artists – some familiar faces to Fools fans and some brand new foolish actors: Simon Bradshaw, John Doucet, Melanie Karin, Matthew John Lundvall, Geoff McBride and Katie Ryerson. Vanessa Imeson will design the costumes and sets for both productions. More information and a detailed schedule can be found at fools.ca or by contacting the Fools at 613-863-7529.

Going hungry was always one of Mary’s fears

T

he sauerkraut barrel was just about empty in the summer kitchen. It has served us well since the early fall when the whole family spent many evenings shredding cabbage to fill it to the brim. The salt pork barrel was empty too and had been thoroughly washed and set out on the back stoop to dry in the sun. The smallest of the three barrels had long since given up the last pickled herring. Even the vegetables in the root cellar were getting scarce. Now what were we to do, I wondered? Would we starve, just like the starving Armenians Mother talked about all the time? It would be many weeks before we would have carrots and potatoes from the garden. Now I had something else to worry about. Back then, it seemed, I could find many issues to send me into a state of anxiousness. Mother said I was born with furrows in my brow, whatever that meant. Worrying if we had enough

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories food to keep us alive was constantly on my mind this time of year. I took my concerns to my sister Audrey. She always seemed to have an answer for everything. At first she laughed out loud when I asked her if we were about to starve since all the barrels that once held our daily sustenance were empty. Then she saw that I was sincerely worried and she took me to the old swing in the grape arbour to give me a long talk on how I was worried for nothing. At that very moment, she pointed out, wasn’t our bake table full of freshly baked bread? Weren’t there enough loaves there to last us most of the week when Mother would again bake up another batch? So there would al-

ways be sandwiches, always bread pudding for dessert. And in the smoke house, wasn’t there slabs of backbacon, roasts of pork and sausage links, enough to feed half of Renfrew County? “Stop worrying, Mary,” she said. “We won’t starve.” Of course, my wiser sister Audrey was quite right. Soon there were sprigs of new lettuce showing in the garden, enough to take to the dinner table and for lettuce sandwiches, which I loved with a passion. Fresh lettuce with a spattering of sugar and vinegar between two slices of buttered freshly baked bread -- now that was a treat! Then Audrey took me down into the dugout under the house. I had told her the last time I had gone down with the dish pan to bring

up vegetables for supper, I had to dig away in the sand before I found a carrot. Audrey pointed to the shelves down there that for generations held preserves and pickles. There on those shelves were enough glass jars, full of beans in brine, onions hanging in mesh bags and sealer after sealer of preserved raspberries, crab apples and wild blueberries. “Now do you think we are starving?” Audrey asked. Of course my much older and much wiser sister was right. Just because the barrels in the kitchen were empty there was still food aplenty to last us until the garden was ready. I could put my worries aside. I recalled what my father always said when he was discussing the issues of the day: “It’s a poor farmer indeed, who can’t keep food on the table to feed his family.” Although not my favourite, we had as much milk to drink as we wanted. There was always a big jug of fresh milk in the ice box and newly churned butter in

glass bowls. Our hen house full of hens provided us with enough eggs for our own use with lots left over for Mother to peddle in Renfrew every Saturday morning. We could expect a chicken dinner every Sunday. Mother, long before we would set out for church, would have stuffed at least

Now what were we to do, I wondered? Would we starve, just like the starving Armenians Mother talked about all the time? two fat birds and put them in the Findlay Oval oven. If there weren’t enough vegetables in the sand bin to tuck around the chickens, we made do with bowls of pickled beans or canned tomatoes from the cellar. Although Father never considered it a meal, Mother had what we all called her

“everything goes into it” pot of soup simmering just about constantly on the back of the stove. Hulls of vegetables, anything left over from the dinner table, scraps of meat, leftover gravy, whatever she could find went into the soup-pot. Father, most nights, when he wasn’t too tired from dawn to dusk working in the fields, would sit down just before he fell into bed and with a couple pieces of homemade bread sponging up the soup, ate heartily of what he called “a wee bite before turning in.” No, on thinking about it, I worried for nothing. We wouldn’t starve on the farm just because the barrels were empty. Food was all around us, and there was always Briscoe’s General Store, where we could stop for maple cookies, a couple slices of bologna and the basics like flour, tea and sugar. All we had to do was ask for it and tell Mr. Briscoe, “just put it on our bill, please.”

Meet Serena, a two-year-old, spayed female, gold and white Golden Retriever who loves to learn! This sweetheart was brought to the shelter as a stray on May 17, and is now ready to find her pack leader! Serena is a bright, and fun dog who just wants to please. Her and her new owner

will be sure to blow away any competition in obedience classes! Serena has a long, beautiful coat that will require some grooming to stay nice and soft, and to help reduce shedding. Serena is a “Special Needs” adoption. She came in to the shelter with a bad ear infection, and though she seems to be responding to the treatments, we are unclear at this point if her ears will be a chronic problem or not, as this dog’s new

owner you should be prepared for this possibility by discussing this with your veterinarian. Meet Smudge, a 6-year-old, neutered male, brown tabby and white Domestic Shorthair cat who loves to cozy up with his human and is available for adoption! Smudge is patient and has a great easy-going disposition. He wouldn’t mind sharing his household with cats and children, as long as they are cool as a cucumber, just like him. Smudge has only ever known an indoor lifestyle, and would rather not be an outdoor cat. Smudge loves to play and would love if his new family could provide him with great toys! For more information about these or other animals available for adoption, please call the Adoption Centre at 613-725-3166 ext. 258 or visit www.ottawahumane.ca.

Cool ways to beat the heat

in lakes and larger bodies of water. PFDs are made just for dogs and are available at many stores – including the Ottawa Humane Society’s retail store located at 245 West Hunt Club Road. A good PFD will have flotation all around your animal’s body, not just along their backs and will be brightly coloured and have a large grab handle along the back of the jacket. If your dog has never worn a PFD, give them time to get acquainted with it before actually getting on the boat. Get your pet used to the PFD in small steps. Start with wearing it in and around your home, then outside for short walks and finally aboard the boat. Make sure the life jacket fits properly and allow your dog to practice swimming in it. To keep your dog from swimming too far away, use a long nylon lead. Keep a close watch to make sure your dog doesn’t get tangled in the lead. This is a great way to make sure new swimmers are relaxed and comfortable in the water.

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

PET OF THE WEEK

Bianco This is Bianco who adopted us some years ago. He was a street resident of the Main St. Lees Ave area. He had decided that he liked our backyard and refused to go away. When no one answered our ad re “found white cat”, we named him Bianco and he very gladly moved in. The two incumbent residents Charlemagne and Josephine were not too happy at first to have a less aristocratic cat than they themselves are, move in with them, but in a short time they all became good friends. Bianco is very loveable appreciative and cuddly, and a more appropriate name would have been “my shadow”. Do you think your pet is cute enough to be “THE PET OF THE WEEK”?

Summertime and the livin’ is easy, until a heat wave strikes and the recent weather in the Ottawa area makes it difficult for furry friends to stay cool. You may think that a backyard pool party or a trip to a local beach that allows dogs is a perfect way to beat the heat, but there are some things to think about before you dive in. If you’re swimming with your dog, don’t get in over your head. Many dogs will try to climb on their guardian’s head or shoulders when they tire. Keep a close watch on dogs near pools: an untrained animal will probably head for the nearest edge of the pool to get out, but slippery pool walls do not offer an easy exit. Panic can lead to exhaustion. Barking may be difficult for a dog in the water, making it tough for them to cry for help. Use a canine life vest or PFD. A well-fitted canine life vest is an easy way to keep your dog safe on a boat or while swimming

News - Staying smart on the water is all about common sense said Boatsmart president Cameron Taylor. Taylor spent the morning of June 27 cruising the Ottawa River near the Nepean Sailing Club to remind boaters to be safe this summer. He said it’s especially important to be vigilant around long weekends. “Keep an eye out for other boaters because there’s going to be a lot more traffic on the waterways,” he said. Boatsmart was founded 10 years ago and is mandated by Transport Canada to outfit drivers with their Boatsmart operator card and to increase awareness of safe practices onthe water. The fine for operating a boat without the card is $250, Taylor said, but avoiding the fine isn’t the only reason to get the qualification. “You need to get the card so that when you’re out on the water you know how to navigate and know the rules,” he said. Rule number one is never go out on a boat without wearing a personal floatation device. Taylor said 85 per cent of drowning fatalities could have been pre-

ties are alcohol related. Before heading out on a trip, the boater should file a travel plan with a trusted friend or the coast guard so someone knows when they should be back. “A lot of people head out on a fishing trip in the spring and then if something happens no one knows where they went, so they die of hypothermia,” Taylor said. He also recommended having a look at the navigation chart of the area where you’ll be travelling to avoid rocks. Checking the weather before you head out can prevent accidents, Taylor said, but if something comes up unexpectedly, keep an eye on what other boats are doing and head to the nearest safe harbour. The number of boating-related fatalities has decreased annually in the 13 years since Transport Canada made it mandatory to have an operator card. Taylor said education is key in reducing that number even further. “There is still a generational gap, but young people are understanding the importance of wearing a lifejacket and that drinking and boating don’t mix,” Taylor said.

Someone you just met can help you to make the most of a difficult situation, Aries. It shouldn’t take too long for you to get back on track and into a groove. Taurus, make sure you assert yourself more in an important meeting this week. Asserting yourself can help you get ahead at work. Otherwise, you may get overlooked. Gemini, take the initiative regarding a big project this week. Others might want to take the lead, but trust your instincts and take the bull by the horns. Cancer, take time this week to finish all of those little projects that have fallen by the wayside. Take advantage of some free time to catch up and clear your slate. Negotiations will be especially rewarding this week, Leo. Your suggestions are readily accepted, and you do not have to persuade others much at all. Virgo, nothing is free in life, so don’t get fooled when someone promises that you will get something without having to work for it. It’s in your best interest to keep working hard.

Scorpio, focus makes it easier for you to resist temptation, but this week you may find that it’s very difficult to maintain your focus. Do your best to stay focused. Sagittarius, don’t worry about a nagging suspicion that you will receive bad news this week. Keep yourself busy so you aren’t sit around worrying unnecessarily. Someone new to your social situation has you feeling a little suspicious, Capricorn. You’re not sure if you can trust him or her just yet. New facts will come to light this week. Aquarius, take some time this week to further hone some unique abilities that set you apart from others in your group of friends. You will soon be able to showcase your skills. Pisces, there are a lot of curious people around who want to learn about what you’re doing. Let them in to get some external perspective.
