Aboriginal languages courses coming to Wabano Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Starting this September, the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health will hold credited Algonquin and Cree courses for interested people of all ages. The new languages program is thanks to Janice Ling, a language instructor and director of the International Languages School of Eastern Ontario. Ling, who runs Chinese and Spanish classes said a recent interaction with a teacher who teachers Algon-

quin inspired her to create a course available to people from across the city. “The teacher told me that some of the Aboriginal communities are losing their languages, or once they come to the city, don’t use it the same,� Ling said. She then made it her mission to find a way to offer these languages to the public and found funding for the program through the French Catholic school board’s international languages program. “Chinese for example, you can learn in any international

program, but you can’t do the same with Algonquin,� Ling said. “I would like to make it the norm.� Ling said without the support from the school board, none of this would be possible. “The board figured out how to find the funding,� Ling said. “When people collaborate, impossible things happen.� The languages program will offer two classes: one for school children, and one credited course for high school students and adults. Space is limited, with a maximum of 18 students per class. The classes will take

place at the Wabano centre every Thursday from 6:15 to 8:30 p.m. The cost to take the credited high school course is $30, simply to cover registration costs. Children up to Grade 8 are free. The languages instructor said the goal would be make Aboriginal and First Nations languages as easy to learn as any other language. The program isn’t just about learning a language -it’s also about learning about the culture and Ling said there is no better place to learn then at Wabano. “It’s a spiritual space,â€? she said. “If the public uses the space, they are not only learning a language, they are taking in culture.â€? Lynn Fletcher is the culture coordinator for Wabano and she said she expects there to be a lot of interest in the classes. “Since we opened the new centre, I have been asked by the community about a languages program,â€? Fletcher said. “We have had some language courses in the past, but the funding only lasted for so long. Thanks to the French Catholic board, these courses will be able to be offered for a long time.â€? Fletcher said although there are more than 60 Aboriginal languages, Algonquin has similarities with many and by taking the course students may have the ability to converse with many different First Nations, Aboriginals and MĂŠtis. According to a 2011 Stats Canada survey Aboriginals who can conduct a conversation in a traditional language is in decline. Only 17 per cent of the population who identified as Aboriginal responded that they were able to converse in an Aboriginal language, down from 2006 when 21 per cent said they were able to converse in an Aboriginal language. In that same report, Stats Canada found that only 4,305 non-Aboriginal people reported knowing an Aboriginal language. For the school board’s in-

It’s crazy for us not to do this,� he said. “If we are able to do this, if we can help make more people capable of speaking one of these languages, we are going to do it.� Working with Wabano, Da Costa said, just made sense. “We like to have our schools where our community is, now all we need is the students,� he said. Currently, the board serves more than 6,000 students learning 20 different languages through its languages program. Da Costa said more than 70 per cent of the students taking the courses are students from outside the board. In addition to adding the

Cree and Algonquin language courses, the board will also add Angolan and Swahili. Da Costa said ultimately, he would like to also offer other Aboriginal and Inuit languages to the program, and is currently reaching out to other organizations to see if that is a possibility. “These language courses give them (the students) not only the knowledge of a language, but also about the culture,� Da Costa said. “I like to say that the extra languages we teach open up the children and students to the world and the world to them.� Email languages@hotmail.ca to register for the Algonquin or Cree languages courses.

McKay United to host charity concert for Phoebe michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - This Father’s Day, the McKay United Church will host a special concert for Phoebe Rose. Overbrook’s Phoebe Rose Doull-Hoffman has a rare form of infant leukemia. Diagnosed when she was only nine weeks old in 2010, Phoebe’s treatment so far has consisted of six months of chemotherapy and two bone marrow transplants. In December, Phoebe relapsed and is currently being treated as an out patient at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. For the past two years, Phoebe’s parents, Jenny Doull-Hoffman and Jon Hoffman stopped working in order to be there for their daughter. With money tight, the family admits it has been a struggle, but since her diagnosis her mother, father and sister have worked hard to make sure they are together. “We have spent a lot of time

in the hospital and away from home, but have made this work,” Doull-Hoffman said. “We have traveled for treatment to Toronto and to Memphis and have made a point of staying together at all times. ... This situation has also allowed us a closeness that we wouldn’t have had otherwise, although I would trade this for a healthy child, it has brought us together as a family and allowed us watch our girls grow up.” The McKay United Church fundraiser on June 16 aims to help keep this family fighting together. Classical songs, opera arias and duets will be performed starting at 3 p.m. Admission is $15 per person; children under 12 are free. Tickets will be sold at the door. Since Phoebe’s relapse, there has been a number of fundraising efforts, including a bottle drive, a school fundraiser and donations raised by family, friends and the community.

JENNY DOULL-HOFFMAN

Phoebe Rose Doull-Hoffman was diagnosed with infantile acute l0ymphoblastic leukemia when she was only nine weeks old. Her sister Mae’s school, Manor Park Public School, has launched a fundraiser to help with Phoebe’s medical expenses. The money helps the family stay together. “We are very blessed to have this support and such a wonderful and caring community. It has always helped me to know that many people are thinking of Phoebe and praying for her cure,” said Doull-Hoffman. “This support has really helped to hold us up

on the most difficult days.” For more information about the upcoming concert, please contact Doull-Hoffman through her blog, PhoebeRoseRocks. blogspot.ca or check out a Facebook group with the same name.

Canal footbridge could face delay Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - The progress of a proposed footbridge over the Rideau Canal is on hold after residents complained to the Ministry of Environment that it will block their view. The ministry is reviewing a request to complete a more detailed and rigorous environmental assessment for the proposed pedestrian and cycling bridge that would traverse the canal from Clegg Avenue in Old Ottawa East to Fifth Avenue in the Glebe, near Lansdowne Park. According to the city, the request for a Part II order, commonly known as a “bump-up” request, came from a member of the public who raised the issue of the “visual impacts of the east landing on views of the canal from an adjacent property.” It is unclear how long the project may be on hold while the ministry reviews the request, which was filed on March 15. The Ministry of Environment website states that reviews typically take between 30 and 66 days. At this newspaper’s publication date, it will have been 92 days since the request was filed.

According to the ministry’s website, the minister could make one of four possible decisions: deny the request, deny the request and impose conditions, refer the issue to mediation or require the city to complete the highest level of environmental assessment, an individual assessment. The city already conducted a Schedule C environmental assessment, which is the “most comprehensive” kind and one that is often used for complex projects that potentially have more environmental impacts, according to an email from city media relations staff attributed to the bridge’s project manager, transportation planner Colin Simpson. There wouldn’t be too much difference between the Schedule C environmental assessment that was already completed and the slightly more rigorous individual environmental assessment, according to the email. “The major differences lie in which governing body has the final approval authority, and prescribed approval timelines,” he states in the email from media relations staff. If the ministry approved the completion of an individual en-

ronmental issues that cannot be resolved through the environmental assessment process, discussions with the city or through mediation. “It should be noted that the disliking of or disagreement with a study outcome is not a sufficient reason for the ministry to grant a bump-up,” the email states. Detailed design work for the bridge could take about a year and couldn’t begin until the bump-up request and any additional resulting work are dealt with. Construction could take two years, according to Simpson. No funding for the bridge’s construction has yet been allocated.

Information Session Update on the Ontario Municipal Board Appeal Against the Infill Zoning By-law Amendment

Monday, June 24, 2013 6 to 8 p.m. Earl Armstrong Arena 2020 Ogilvie Road, Ottawa

Monday, June 17, 2013 7 to 8:30 p.m., Presentation at 7:30 p.m. City Hall, Champlain Room 110 Laurier Avenue West, Ottawa

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 purpose of the meeting is to provide an update on the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) appeal against the Infill Zoning By-law 2012-147 that was adopted by City Council on May 9, 2012, and subsequently amended through By-laws 2012-347 and 2012-348. The Infill Zoning By-law affects all residentially-zoned lands located within Wards 12, 14, 15, 17 and part of Ward 13.

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 OMB issued an Interim Order directing City staff to document specific attributes that, in part, assist in the creation of neighbourhood character within those areas affected specifically by Infill By-law 2012-147, as amended.

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.

Staff will provide an update to the public concerning the staff response to the OMB’s Order, including the methodology that is being used to document the prominent character of each neighbourhood, as identified as the predominant use of land along a street, as seen from that street.

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.

A Planning Report will be prepared for consideration by the Planning Committee June 25, 2013, and by City Council on June 26, 2013.

Additional information about the project is available on Ottawa.ca. If you have any further questions or comments, please contact:

Mutchmor field being considered for construction staging Equipment for expansion poised to occupy yard Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroalnd.com

EMC news - Dealing with tight quarters at Mutchmor Public School, the school board is mulling how to turn a portion of the school’s playing ďŹ eld into a construction zone in anticipation of a major expansion of the facility. Ahead of the $7.5 million expansion project, members of the school council met with school board representatives to discuss the construction staging plans on June 5. It was then that the facilities manager Peter Wright and Michael Clarke, superintendent of facilities, discussed the option of taking up 20 per cent of the ďŹ eld to house construction trailers, materials and parking for construction workers. Wright said there is no existing practical location on-site that could be used, and a construction company would need a place close to the school to hold all its equipment, ofďŹ ce and vehicles. Reaction from the school council was mixed. Vice-chairman David Baar asked Wright and Clarke to place stipulations into the tender contract restricting the company from using the ďŹ eld as a staging area. “If we specify conditions, then they would have to comply,â€? he said.

MICHELLE NASH/METROLAND

With little space available for construction staging, a portion of the Mutchmor Public School field is being considered for the trailers, tools and material needed to build a new addition at the Glebe facility. “So we don’t build a parking lot on the ďŹ eld.â€? Baar suggested that the staging occur on a portion of Fourth Avenue or where the schools dumpsters are next to the Fourth Avenue entrance. School council secretary Anna Curtner disagreed, stating she felt safer with the thought of all the construction materials, workers and trucks remained in one place further from the doors to the school.

“Even if it takes away from the park, it makes it safer for the kids coming and going to school,â€? she said. The staging would remain in place for the fall and a portion of the winter before those activities can be moved into the new addition. At that time, Wright said, the board will return the ďŹ eld to its original condition. At that mention, other council

members raised concerns of the environmental impact of trucks and a trailer parked on the ďŹ eld, adding the school board should put some measures in place to ensure the least amount of damage occurs. “We will look at all environmental aspects,â€? Wright said. A number of things remain up in the air, Wright added, stating that any ďŹ nal plans would have to be discussed with whichever company

wins the bid to build the addition. Capital Coun. David Chernushenko said he hasn’t heard from the community or the board about the location for construction staging, but said he would welcome working on ďŹ nding a better solution. “The simple comment is that it’s not a good idea for the construction to be staged in a ďŹ eld that is so well used and well loved,â€? he said. “I would ask staff if there is place other than the ďŹ eld that can work.â€? He added he thinks most residents in the area would put up with the narrowing of a street if it could save a portion of the ďŹ eld from being taken away. “Construction in tight quarters downtown is nothing new at all,â€? he said. “We deal with that all the time and we have measures in place to make it work.â€? Clarke said the board is willing to continue the discussion. “We will be back,â€? Clarke said. “This was just the start to the conversation. It’s our way to help people understand the amount of work we are doing to make sure this project works out the best for everyone.â€? Construction is aimed to begin in September, but the board is still waiting on approvals from the Ministry of Environment to begin. Clarke said they hope to get those approvals by early July so the project can be put out to tender at the end of July. The expansion will be a total of 789 square metres and construction will take between 11 and 14 months.

Beaver Barracks nominated for prestigious housing award Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - A housing development that brought life to a moribund city block near the Nature Museum has landed on a prestigious international honour list. The Centretown Citizens Ottawa Corporation’s Beaver Barracks development was recently named an international finalist for the World Habitat Awards. The awards, which will be announced in August, were created in the 1980s by the Building and Social Housing Foundation to recognize projects that provided practical and innovative solutions to housing needs. The 254-unit Beaver Barracks occupies the land bordered by Catherine Street, Metcalfe Street, and Argyle Street, sharing a city block with the Taggart Family YMCA. Like the name suggests, the land once housed a Second World War-era training barracks for military ser-

vicemen, which the federal government sold to the former regional municipality in the early 1990s. Ray Sullivan, the CCOC’s executive director, said he’s pleased to see the recognition garnered by the development. “It’s really great to see Beaver Barracks recognized on an international level,� he said. “Part of it is the design, and we have Barry Hobin & Associates Architects to thank for that. But, a lot of the (recognition) is from the impact on the community. It’s a mixed development designed to have a positive impact on the neighbourhood.� Consisting of two mid-rise apartment buildings, townhomes and stacked townhomes, the affordable housing development transformed “a semi-abandoned, contaminated site in a forgotten corner of Centretown,� said Sullivan, adding, “There are over 100 kids living on that site alone – it’s brought a vibrancy to the community.�

Beaver Barracks, the Centretown Citizens Ottawa Corporation’s latest and most innovative social housing development, is a finalist for the international World Habitat Awards. The building employs a number of energy-saving “green� features, which save the organization money over the long run, especially in energy costs. Being the landlord for 1,600 subsidized units means paying many mortgages, so any mon-

ey saved is a good thing. The energy-saving features will allow the CCOC to pay down the mortgage on the Beaver Barracks, which is “hefty,� according to Sullivan. The development, which occurred in phases over several years, included funding

from all levels of government. To make into the top 10 finalists, Beaver Barracks had to beat out most of the 200 projects competing for inter-

national top billing. Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes stated in a media release that the nomination is something Ottawa can be proud of. “I am thrilled to see recognition by the World Habitat Award for this fantastic example of what’s possible when government and local groups work together,� said Holmes. “It’s sustainable, it’s affordable, and it’s providing new family housing in an area where the only other houses going up are condos for singles and couples.� While Beaver Barracks has been well received by both residents and neighbours of the development, Sullivan said much more affordable housing needs to be built to sustain the current need in Ottawa. “This (development) is one step,� said Sullivan. “We’re waiting to see what the next steps will be.�

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 BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse 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” ap-

proach 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

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 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,

City wants NCC to respond to bridge concerns East-end councillors curious about truck tunnel instead of interprovincial crossing Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - The idea of a new interprovincial bridge at Kettle Island took another beating during a city meeting on June 5. Around 20 residents, as well as a representative from the Montfort Hospital, lined up to tell city councillors why they think the bridge to Quebec is a bad idea. Adding commuter traffic into the Manor Park area would be dangerous and destroy those neighbourhoods, most of the speakers argued. Alain-Michel Sekula, board chairman for the Montfort Hospital, said a bridge would cause trouble for patients if it created traffic snarls on the Aviation Parkway, which ambulances used to get to the hospital. Putting thousands of cars and trucks within 10 metres of a high-caliber health facility “doesn’t hold water,” Sekula said. An expansion of the hospital in 2010 was designed to facilitate easier access to the parkway from the hospital. The proposed bridge would connect the Rockcliffe and Aviation parkways on the Ottawa side to Montée Paiement in Gatineau. In each direction it would have two lanes for traffic, one dedicated bus lane and a multi-use path for cyclists and pedestrians. Lori Assheton-Smith of the Rockcliffe Park community association said a new bridge would be a detriment, no matter where it is located. “It doesn’t make sense for any neighbourhood in Ottawa, from an economic, transportation or public policy perspective,” she told the committee. Sheilagh McLean, who said she lives south of Manor Park, said the idea to build a new bridge is a “historical” idea that doesn’t make sense in the current reality. “If I thought it was a good idea for the city, I would certainly support it,

even if it meant some disadvantages for me as a person living in the general area,” she said. Transportation committee chairman Coun. Keith Egli assured everyone that the committee vote was simply to accept the information update – not to support a bridge location. Andra Waterfield agreed. She said the “1950s and 1960s thinking” behind the bridge will “destroy lives.” “We’re not having a vote on yes or no to this particular proposal,” Egli said. In addition to accepting the information, the transportation committee also voted to invite the NCC and Roche-Genivar back to city hall in the fall with specific information on how the bridge’s design “responds to community interests and concerns,” particularly regarding the number of lanes on the bridge, tunneling options, impacts on green space, impact on city infrastructure such as roads, transit connectivity and truck routes. Not everyone was opposed to the bridge. Residents of Lowertown, like Bill Campbell, support a new bridge because the city could designate it as a new route for heavy trucks and get transport trucks out of their neighbourhood. “Ottawa needs this bridge now,” he said. The Dalhousie Community Association also added its voice to the ranks of those who support a Kettle Island bridge. In a letter to the transportation committee, the group’s president, Michael Powell, wrote that the association supports any efforts to remove truck traffic from the downtown core. But he added that in order for that to happen, the city must remove King Edward Avenue and Booth Street as truck routes. “The truck problem is dire and needs an urgent solution – but this isn’t it,” Assheton-Smith said during her presentation, adding that trucks will continue to use the shortest route, even if there is another option.

Approximately 20 residents – most in opposition – came to city hall on June 5 to speak about an interprovincial bridge route at Kettle Island, shown here, which is being proposed as part of a National Capital Commission-led project. gone up considerably to an estimated $1.6 billion. Funding has not been approved. On the other hand, Bloess said a very rough estimate to dig a tunnel was around half a billion dollars. “In light of a massive discrepancy in the cost of tunnel and bridge … Does this not sort of give you cause to say we need to go back and look at the tunnel option or at least compare it to what we have today?” Bloess said. Beacon Hill-Cyrville Coun. Tim Tierney also spoke in support of investigating a tunnel. A representative from the NCC

TUNNEL PIQUES INTEREST

A couple of east-end councillors wondered if the idea of building a tunnel for transport trucks under the city’s downtown core should be revisited instead of looking at a new bridge. Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess called the tunnel option the “elephant in the room” that was dismissed long ago, but might now prove to be a better option. While a tunnel was deemed to be too pricey of an option and was therefore excluded from the study, the projected cost of the bridge has

said the cost would assuredly be much higher when technical details and requirements are factored in, not to mention the cost of digging a deeper tunnel under the forthcoming subterranean light-rail line. At a recent public consultation, lead consultant Eric Peissel from Roche-Genivar Joint Venture and the NCC’s Fred Gaspère say a tunnel is not a viable option. “At its core, a tunnel would only serve one purpose,” Gaspère said. “The purpose is for a long-term transportation strategy.” With files from Michelle Nash

Councillor wants out-of-town toll on 174 Blais suggests system similar to one in use along Highway 407 Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

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 the bus Transitway, no other Ottawa road has as high a requirement for snowplowing, salting and pothole repair, Blais said. He couldn’t provide figures for the annual maintenance cost. The city is currently in the process of conducting an environmental assessment to investigate the possibility of widening the highway and 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. “The province has no intention to re-upload it,” Blais said. “That would be the best-case scenario, but I don’t believe it will happen.” To demonstrate the city is serious about this issue, Blais is working with city staff on the best way to

approach the possibility of adding a toll to the highway. The councillor planned to bring a notice of motion to the next council 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 Clarence-Rockland 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.

Ottawa East 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 wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 signiďŹ cant 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 ďŹ rst zip carrying visitors 201 metres across a small bay. Zip No. 2 runs 343 metres across the middle of the lake, before the ďŹ nal 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 Paxtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have four goals in mind,â&#x20AC;? says Logos Land director of marketing and sales Fred Glover. The ďŹ rst goal is to offer something, like the zip line course, that caters more to older youngsters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made investments in recent years for the little kids, like the petting farm and the splash pad,â&#x20AC;? says Glover. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But for older kids, as families grow up, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want them to hit the boredom curve.â&#x20AC;? 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 Landâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season, which for the longest time has been concentrated in July and August. â&#x20AC;&#x153;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.â&#x20AC;? 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. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our big posters stopped them,â&#x20AC;? says Glover. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It surprised us, especially the positive verbal feedback from 40-, 50- and 60-year-olds. But weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see for sure this summer.â&#x20AC;? Glover acknowledges thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 Landâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third

marketing goal. For example, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no reason tourists canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every zip line you see is different.â&#x20AC;? The areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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. There will also be a practice zone where riders can hook to a shorter line to familiarize themselves with the art and science of the sport.

For more details, check out www.logosland.com or call 613-646-9765. The zip line is being constructed by Challenges Unlimited Inc.

STEPH WILLEMS/METROLAND

Mayor Jim Watson joined Laureen Harper and students from St. Michael Catholic High School in proclaiming June as Soles4Souls month in the city. The initiative collects donated shoes for use by those in developing countries.

Soles4Souls initiative seeks shoes for those in need Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - Few things are as basic and useful as footwear, which is why a growing initiative is aiming to put more shoes on the feet of those who need them. Soles4Souls is seeking to collect 100,000 pairs of donated shoes in the Ottawa area and now has the support of some powerful partners. On June 5, Soles4Souls Month was declared in Ottawa by Mayor Jim Watson, who spoke at the recently opened Dymon self-storage building at Carling Avenue and the Queensway. Dymon Storage will be using its trucks to ship collected shoes to sorting centres in preparation for their journey overseas. A large shipment will be bound for Rwanda in July. “The fact is, the majority of people in Ottawa take wearing shoes for granted,” said Steve Creighton, senior vice-president of Dymon Storage. “Despite our prosperity, many people in our community do not own proper footwear,” he said. “At the same time,

many people around the world face even greater hardships. In many countries, shoes can prevent life-threatening disease, injury and illness.” Creighton thanked charity supporter Laureen Harper for attending the announcement and declared that after just four official days of this year’s initiative, more than 25,000 pairs of shoes have been collected. Soles4Souls is teaming up this year with Sole Responsibility, an Ottawa-based charity. The idea behind Soles4Souls came in the aftermath of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, when a Nashville shoe executive collected 250,000 shoes as part of the relief efforts. Following Hurricane Katrina the following year, the same group of companies collected 1 million shoes. Soles4Souls officially formed the year after that. The Canadian branch formed four years ago following the Haiti earthquake, and the campaign came to Ottawa for the first time last year. “It was one of those charities that was just so practical

and sensible, just like shoes are in many ways,” said Watson. “The City of Ottawa is very proud to support the Soles4Souls campaign. We’re eager to bring awareness to the cause through events like this and to be an active participant in the campaign. Individuals can drop off gently-used shoes at city locations like city hall or at one of seven City of Ottawa recreation facilities that are designated drop-off centres.” Students from St. Michael Catholic High School in Kemptville were also on hand for the proclamation. Their social justice club hopped on board the initiative following a suggestion by teacher Heather Kingsburg. “Our school brought in 560 pairs of shoes over the course of two weeks,” said member Chloe Preston, who joined club member Jordan Konery in speaking about the school’s enthusiasm over the initiative. Kingsburg said it was the first time their school had participated in Soles4Souls, and implied it wouldn’t be the last time they did, either. “I highly doubt it,” she said. “It was very well received.”

Horse racing to be part of new OLG plan Continued from page 1

THERESA FRITZ/METROLAND

Former mission director honoured Diane Morrison, retired executive director of the Ottawa Mission, talks about her 20 years working with and supporting the homeless community, during United Way Ottawa’s 2013 Communtiy Builder of the Year Awards held June 6 at the convention centre. Morrison received the 2013 Community Builder of the Year award for her efforts.

Given that the Ontario Gaming and Lottery Corporation will only allow one gaming site in each designated gaming zone - killing the hope of a satellite slots program to complement a downtown casino - Watson said it was “becoming increasingly clear that there would be no future role for the RCR given the OLG’s most recent position,” he wrote. “Therefore, I do not believe we should jeopardize the Rideau Carleton Raceway operation by not being crystal clear to the OLG prior to the start of its RFP process.” For the past year, Watson has vocally supported an urban casino location. Community leaders like Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson and NepeanCarleton MPP Lisa MacLeod have been fighting against him to save the raceway’s monopoly on gaming in the city. The raceway has been suffering since the end of March, when the province ended its 13-year revenue-sharing agreement through the Slots at Racetracks program. With a new casino planned for downtown - and thus the permanent removal of the racetrack’s slot machines - the raceway was all but doomed. Not surprisingly, Thompson said he was very happy to hear the mayor had changed

his mind. Thompson said he “was going crazy” trying to make OLG and Watson see the racetrack’s potential. “I’ve said this continually: We have 1.7 millions visitors going every year; they give $70 million to the province already; they’re going to build hotels, they have ample parking,” Thompson said. “It’s so logical that it would be there, it just cries out.” He said the change of heart won’t please everyone - several businessmen including Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk have already spoken out against the plan - but Thompson believes this is the right way forward. “The people around there, they’re (already) living with the racetrack there, so why not move ahead,” he said. Raceway manager Jean Larose said the mayor’s announcement is welcome but wouldn’t comment further. The raceway’s spokesperson Alex Lawryk wouldn’t comment either on the impact this could have on the raceway, since it is already part of the process to be pre-qualified for the development, he said. Racetracks across the province were shocked in March 2012 when the McGuinty government and OLG scrapped the long-standing Slots at Racetracks program, a rev-

Central location for families in Vanier, Overbrook Continued from page 1

Dubois added the program is to help promote breastfeeding, which she said, for some new moms can be hard. “Sometimes, moms feel like its not working, and with our lactation consultant and nurse you can talk it through,” she said. Choosing the location,

which is centrally located for Vanier, Overbrook and the Carson Grove communities, Dubois said, was very important to ensuring this drop-in centre would be a success. “The boundaries between Overbrook and Vanier are varied, and most don’t draw lines between the two communities. We wanted to choose an area, that people

from a number of the communities, could get to,” Dubois said. The location, she added, has great Sunday bus service, lots of parking and open on the weekend. “It’s a really popular community place and we have a lovely room that is easy to get to but private for the families,” she said.

“It’s welcoming to go to. That was important.” Dr. Merrilee Fullerton, member of the Ottawa Board of Health, attended the launch at the complex and said this new Baby Express location will ensure babies get the best possible start in life. Including the new location at the St. Laurent Complex, there are 20 locations across

Mayor Jim Watson has abandoned his support for an urban casino and now says the Rideau Carleton Raceway is the only place for a new gaming facility in Ottawa. enue-sharing agreement with rural racetracks. Since 2000, the Rideau Carleton Raceway has hosted 1,250 slot machines that subsidized any losses from running the racetrack programs. Without a revenue sharing program, the racetrack is unsustainable. “In the current formula horse racing is only limping along and losing money,” said MacMillan, a horse racer of 25 years. He said the raceway’s revenues have dropped drastically since the provincial agreement ended on March 31. But there may be some hope on the horizon. Under new Premier Kathleen Wynne, the OLG has moved in a new direction on

casinos and she has taken up the torch for the horseracing industry - at least in principle. Wynne has directed the OLG to integrate horseracing into its modernization plan, and a panel has been set up to draft a financial model for the industry by the end of June. It would be finalized in October and implemented next April. “We’re looking for Wynne to reintroduce a new revenuesharing formula that makes sense for horse racing, and the OLG and the province,” MacMillan said, although he said the horseracing industry is only cautiously optimistic. “Unless Premier Wynne can create a formula which elevates the purses to a reasonable level, horse racing won’t survive.”

the city which offers breast feeding or newborn baby support. By adding the east end location, the city announced it is now possible for new parents to get support and advice seven days a week. “I am happy to be working in collaboration with OPH’s Healthy Babies, Healthy Children Program,” Dubois said. “Partnerships such as this one are essential in meeting the community’s needs.”

The Rideau-Rockcliffe centre is one member of the 13 Community Health and Resource Centres working in all neighbourhoods throughout Ottawa and the services at these centres range from counseling to community development in support of neighbourhoods, emergency food programs, early years programs, after school programs and seniors services, a wide range of services in service to people of all ages, cultures and life experiences.

City to present Main Street â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;complete streetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; plan Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - The city will present plans to turn Main Street into one of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first â&#x20AC;&#x153;complete streetsâ&#x20AC;? on June 17 and 18. The main artery in Old Ottawa East will be rebuilt in 2014 and 2015 and after working with the community and businesses, transportation engineers are recommending a design that calms traffic and balances the needs of pedestrians and cyclists with the needs of motorists.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Main Street that is better for pedestrians and cyclists has been a critical consideration for community representatives on the Main renewal working group,â&#x20AC;? reads the notice sent out by the city. Old Ottawa East community association president John Dance said the proposed design is exciting for the community and the city should be commended for taking a â&#x20AC;&#x153;complete streetâ&#x20AC;? approach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want a livable street, one that is much better for pedestrians, cyclists, residents and businesses,â&#x20AC;? Dance wrote in an

email. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the table will make it much better.â&#x20AC;? He said there has been some concern from people who represent the interests of the Oblate property â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a former monastery and convent that is planned for commercial and residential redevelopment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that the proposed traffic changes would limit access to the large site.

Fresh food coming to Overbrook michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - A fresh food market is coming to Overbrook this summer. The market will be located on an empty city-owned lot at the corner of Lola Street and Presland Road and will offer patrons the option to purchase fresh produce and dried goods at below-average prices. Mehdi Louzouaz, the Rideau-Rockcliffe Community Resource Centre’s community developer, is organizing the first market day on June 15. “Sometimes it’s not just about accessibility, it’s very much about affordability too,” he said. There will be one market held each month. The other dates for Overbrook will be July 6 and August 24. The location, Louzouaz said, was chosen because it’s in an area of Overbrook the resource centre is looking to become better engaged with. The food is purchased through the Good Food Box program, a nonprofit organization run out of the Centretown Community Health Centre, which offers weekly produce boxes for $20, $15 or $10 depending on size. The money for the market was made available through the Community Development Framework funding. The volunteer-run markets were first launched as a pilot project last year in a few locations across the city, including Sandy Hill and Michele Heights. Louzouaz said the markets are aimed at being a community event to help neighbours connect with each other. Some of the markets offer activities for children, live music, and cooking demonstrations. “It’s a great opportunity to outreach people. It’s not just

about celebration: we are addressing things like healthy eating and accessibility to food,” Louzouaz said. Executive director of the Rideau-Rockcliffe Community Resource Centre, Catherine Dubois said the market initiative is a wonderful project. “We take it for granted to access to healthy food, but some people don’t have access, or can’t afford to make healthy options,” Dubois said. “These markets make it easier for them to make those choices.” According to Louzouaz, the idea of the market was born out of the poverty and hunger working group, which is made up members of the Coalition of Community Health and Resource Centres in the city. Even though there are multiple farmers’ markets in the city, the Good Food Markets bring low-cost produce to areas of the city where markets aren’t available. Volunteers are needed to help run the markets and can kaitrin.doll@ofcrc.org for more information or visit gfmottawa.ca. MARKET LOCATIONS:

• Sandy Hill Community Health Centre - Chapel Street. • Rideau Rockcliffe Community Health Centre - Overbrook. • Nanny Goat Hill Community Garden - northeast corner of Bronson and Laurier avenues in Centretown. • Nepean Rideau and Osgood Community Resource Centre & South Nepean Community Resource Centre Parkwood Hills, 76 Inverness Ave. • Somerset West Community Health Centre - Rochester Heights neighbourhood. • Pinecrest Queensway Community Health Centre Michele Heights Park

“We thought it was high time to bring something to the Eastern Canada, to let people in this part of the country who might not otherwise travel abroad to gain the benefit of some of the leading instructors in the world,” he said. The event is divided into the two days, Smith said, so students from all levels can gain instruction on a variety of different fencing styles. “Yes, it will be competitive, but it is not a competition,” Smith said. “The winner is the person chosen among the participants as having shown the best display of the art, with the best sportsmanship, or dare we say ‘chivalric demeanor.’ ” Participants will be divided into factions to challenge and fight one another in amicable competition. The community is encouraged to come out and cheer on the swordsmen and women, while they challenge each other. The Sunday event will also have a charity barbecue that will help raising money for the Youth Services Bureau. The organization has helped raise money for the Youth Services Bureau in the past, and felt hosting a barbecue was a great way to included them in their first event. “We thought we could continue to

help the organization we’ve grown to have a relationship with by inviting them to provide our fighters with valuable sustenance during their daylong adventure,” Smith said. There are 30 active members in the organization who come out to the regularly scheduled training sessions at the centre on Wednesday night from 7 to 10 p.m. There is a free trial class offered each week beginning at 8 p.m. for individuals who are interested in seeing if swordplay is for them. “It is great exercise, and addresses the imagination. Who hasn’t, as a child, dreamt of being a musketeer or a knight?” Smith said. “The sword is a weapon that captures the imagination, and people are drawn to swordplay for fun, for the love of history, or for the practice of a serious martial system.” Bernard Emmerich said he comes out because regardless of size or sex, people have a chance to hold their own in the ring. The club practices a number of different historical European Martial Arts including art of Armizare, a holistic art (wrestling, dagger, arming sword, long sword, spear and pole axe). Visit armizare.com for more information about the upcoming event, or to learn more about swordplay.

The value of play to a child’s growth is the foundation of all our camp services. Summer Camp is the place to make new friends, learn from role models and always have something exciting to talk about at the dinner table.

Donations to help give elderly helping hand for Seniors Month steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - An Ottawa company is taking its mandate to assist seniors one step further. Seniors on Site has helped Ottawa seniors with daily living needs for the past five years, is donating $5 from each new client to three key service providers: the Eastern Ontario Resource Centre, Good Companions and Rural Ottawa South Support Services. Seniors on Site employs experienced independent contractors, all over the age of 50, to meet the support needs of its clients, whether for transportation, companionship, housework and all the other things required for independent living.

“We work closely with the resource centres of Ottawa and surrounding areas and it makes perfect sense for us to be able to give back to these facilities, which do such a phenomenal job helping everyone in the community,” said Caroline Inman, client services manager for SOS. “For many, getting assistance from the centres is a lifeline and not everyone is in a position to be able to afford private agencies. We are very proud to support their independent efforts in helping seniors and families, and hope this can be the start of a great initiative on our part to continue to give back.” Inman said that all support agencies struggle to get the most care to clients that their funding and fundraising can

provide; as a result, there are many referrals made to other providers. In this mutually respectful environment, companies like SOS naturally want to help their comrades. In the five years SOS has been inexistence, they have helped more than 200 families and individuals meet their specific needs. People can access their services on an as-needed basis, whether it is for a single ride to a doctor’s appointment, or care and companionship on an ongoing basis. Inman said SOS’s first ever client, a 92-year-old woman, is still on their client list. June is Seniors Month in the province of Ontario. More information on this initiative can be found at sosonsite.com or by calling 613422-7676.

Strawberry honey lassi a health, 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

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 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

MARY COOK

HAVING TROUBLE CATCHING THE DETAILS?

Mary Cook’s Memories 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 kitty-corner 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.

Birch bark canoe launches francophone celebrations Brier Dodge

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.”

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 the journey in a handmade birch bark canoe. The students paddled past 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 First Nations.” 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

De La Salle students, including Justine Gamache-Howard, left, paddle a birch bark canoe they spent months making for the June 4 launch at Petrie Island. They launched in front of local French students during the francophone celebration of the anniversary of Samuel de Champlain’s passing. The canoe launch was only a small part of the large celebration, that lasted through the day and night at Petrie Island. Francophone artists performed and descendants of the first five fami-

lies to settle in Orléans – Besserer, Major, Vézina, Duford/Gauthier, and Dupuis/Soctt – attended a booth with presentations on the settlement of the Orléans area.

“We all gathered together, and this is the result,” Fortier said. “a lot of community work, a lot of community involvement, all related to all kids of tradition.”

Contentious Tega proposal destined for June 25 planning date Recent changes made to proposal ‘superficial,’ community says Steph Willems Steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - An 18-storey condo proposed for the block north of the Parkdale Market will go to planning committee later this month. The development, proposed by Tega Homes, has gone through several revisions over the past couple of years, but never met with community approval. Residents are awaiting now a staff report on the proposal that is expected to be handed down the week before the June 25 planning committee date. Hintonburg Community Association president Jeff Leiper said he was notified of the impending date by the office of Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs. Leiper said the overall Lshape design of the building and 18storey height remains in the proposal, though a number of small changes have been made to setbacks, building materials and first-floor design. Those changes don’t seem like they’ll be enough to satisfy a community that made its views heard at a Feb. 28 public meeting with the project’s architect and developers. The opposition to the proposal’s height stems from a recently-approved community design plan for the area, which states that mid-rise building of six to eight storeys would be appropriate for the site.

“No one involved at this point thinks the most recent version of this proposal is any different from what’s been proposed in the past,” said Leiper, calling the design tweaks “superficial.” Leiper said that while developers point to the city’s Official Plan policy of intensification as a rationale for proposing increased density on a site, the city’s approval of the area’s CDP makes the site a de-facto part of the Official Plan. Until it is known whether city staff approved of the project or not, the association plans to hold off on any significant opposition measures. Hobbs said last winter she did not approve of the project in its current form. Should staff, committee and council approve the project, Leiper said an Ontario Municipal Board appeal would be likely. Another development proposed for the edge of the Hintonburg community – the adaptive re-use of 12 Stirling Ave. -- recently went back to the drawing board following community opposition. In that case, the community association said they would have approved of an eight or nine-storey building, but not the 19storey one being proposed. Situations like that one and the Tega proposal causes Leiper to wish there were maximum density targets for sites, not just minimum ones. He pointed to the significant future development potential of the Bayview Yards site and O-Train corridor as reasons a more comprehensive view should be taken on existing, developable land and density targets.

New photo expo depicts world transformed by oil â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Edward Burtynsky: Oilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; now on display at Canadian Museum of Nature 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 motor 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 depict-

ing industrially-transformed landscapes. Born of Ukranian heritage in St. Catharines, Ont., Burtynsky 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 largescale photographs, the exhibition depicts the lifecycle of oil and mankindâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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.

SUBMITTED

Edward Burtynsky spent years documenting man-made landscapes arising from the industrialization of society, spurred by the power of fossil fuels.

Canada beats Fiji as fans treated to top-level rugby Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC sports - 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 PaciďŹ c 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 ďŹ eld because of their explosive power. But at the end of the day, the Canadians were more organized as a team on the ďŹ eld, prompting Fiji head coach Inoke Male to say his team needed to be more prepared next time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew Fiji was going to play a wide open game and we needed to get our defence right to beat them,â&#x20AC;? Mack said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done a lot of work as a team ... it paid off.â&#x20AC;? 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. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we really get tired out there and the crowd amps it, it just really gives us that extra boost,â&#x20AC;? Mack said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something in Canada weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not really used to.â&#x20AC;? It was the ďŹ rst time ever that Canada had beat Fiji at home. Rugby fans were happy to see Ottawa included on a stop, as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not often they get to see this level of 15A-side rugby. The Barrhaven Scottish RFC has their 10 and under players do a rugby demonstration game at halftime. The under-10 players use ďŹ&#x201A;ags like ďŹ&#x201A;ag 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. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing. I think it attracts people to the sport and creates a big buzz for Ottawa. It helps a lot,â&#x20AC;? 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 ofďŹ cials presented the Stringer family with a signed Canada jersey. The Canadian team were scheduled to play their next games in Kingston BRIER DODGE/METROLAND and Ireland. Canada defeated Fiji 20-18 during a match held at Twin Elm Rugby Park in Nepean on June 5.

Agriculture Museum, south Please join the ladies of the Learn about the Registered There are over 110,000 youths (10 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 19 years old) throughout the city of Ottawa that make up a big part of our population. By engaging youths, we give them a voice. We are happy that both the Summit and Action Plan has fostered youth engagement in our City, while also building on all the great things that youths are already doing in our community. The next step is the implementation of the Youth Summit Action Plan, a framework that will help our City continue the discussion with our young leaders. The implementation will allow us to action the ideas and necessary changes that were highlighted at the Summit. The Action Plan will guide the City, and youth partners, to effectively realise the ideas that were the focus of the Summit. These action items include reaching out to youths through social media, building relationships between our young leaders and key City staff, offering practical information and training needed for employment, creating and promoting meaningful mentoring opportunities, and many others. The Action Plan builds on existing youth services, programs and strategies offered by the City in the areas of employment, civic engagement, entrepreneurship, safety, mental health and volunteerism. Our team was thrilled to have been part of the Summit, and to meet all the impressive young people that took part. We are very excited and encouraged to see the next generation engaged and voicing their opinions!
