EMC news - After repeatedly saying that he would prefer to see a new casino in the city’s core, Mayor Jim Watson backed a bid to ask the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Commission to consider a casino expansion at the Rideau-Carleton Raceway. On Oct. 2, the finance and economic development committee indicated it supports in principle the idea of looking at bringing a new casino to Ottawa. Full city council would also have to endorse the move on Oct. 10, after this newspaper’s deadline. While the mayor spent the week before the Oct. 2 meeting insisting he would prefer to see a casino downtown with access to transit, he backed a motion from Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson to ensure the Albion Road racetrack is automatically considered for expansion into a casino. But the mayor couched his support of the raceway motion by saying it “sends a very clear

signal that we’re not asking for preferential treatment, we’re asking for fairness.â€? Rideau-Carleton will celebrate its 50th birthday this fall and has been home to 1,275 slot machines for the past 12 years. It faces closure after OLG decided to cancel its slots at the racetrack program. Alex Lawryk, a representative for the raceway owners, said Rideau-Carleton intends to put in a bid to expand its facility into a casino. “We are also ready to propose a compelling gaming model and program ‌to continue to serve Ottawa in a responsible manner,â€? Lawryk told the committee. OLG kicked off the debate in August by indicating it wants to “modernizeâ€? gambling in Ontario, including a plan to find private developers to build casinos in each of 29 zones across the province. OLG will be asking for proposals from potential casino developers early in 2013. See PUBLIC, page 9

EMC news - After city council turned down a proposal to build a 17-unit residential building at 174 Glebe Ave., the builder has now submitted a preliminary proposal to city staff and residents to build a 30-unit retirement home in its place. The owner of the property,

Mario Staltari, confirmed he has sent the new proposal to the Glebe Community Association, the ward councillor and city staff for comment. Double the size of the 17-unit proposal, Staltari said this new building is not nearly as nice. “It is butt-ugly, but I don’t care,� he said. “Personally I think the condo looked a lot better.� If he submits a formal ap-

plication, it will be the owner’s seventh time submitting an application to the city for approval. Staltari said this time he is laying all his cards on the table and playing the waiting game. “I am really hoping that the residents will look at it and at the end of the day say which one do I prefer, and whatever they decide, I will be inclined to sway that way,� Staltari said.

%DWKURRPV .LWFKHQV

The debate over the last application surrounded plans to build a 17-unit, four-storey structure that was a storey taller and slightly larger in mass than the existing building, already much larger than most of the surrounding homes. It was rejected by city council on Aug. 30 and Staltari decided to go ahead with two plans – appeal the decision to the Ontario Municipal Board and to present the city and residents a new proposal to build a 47-person building, for which the prop-

erty is currently zoned. “I have the exemption which will allow a 47 units, or person building,� he said. “It is what I am allowed to do.� The city confirmed the preliminary application has been sent to staff. Spokeswoman Jocelyn Turner said developers do submit preliminary proposals, before an official application, to seek advice and suggestions from staff. See OWNER, page 10

Fleury puts on his dancing shoes for charity Celebrity dance event looking to raise money for Easter Seals michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury has been practicing his dips, twirls and smooth moves to help raise money for children and youth with physical disabilities. On Oct. 12, the second Dancing with the Stars for Easter Seals Kids fundraiser event will take place in Ottawa. Among the celebrities who will be participating is sporting enthusiast Fleury, who has his eye on finishing first. “Maybe it is my competitive background, but I am in this to win it,” Fleury said. The event will take place at the Delta Ottawa City Centre. At the inaugural event, Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs participated. Prior to the 16 dance lessons offered to Fleury, the councillor admitted his dance steps were limited to a side shuffle at best. Hobbs, Fleury said, put his name in to participate. “I am a bit nervous, it is different than any other sport,” he said. Fleury is learning all he needs to know at the Glebe’s Fred Astaire Studio. The studio has offered 16 free lessons to all the participants and

each celebrity dancer gets a Fred Astaire dance instructor as a partner for the evening’s dance. Director of the Glebe studio, Melissa Krulick, said the event is a lot of fun for the instructors. “It is important to us to give back to the community,” Krulick said. “The camaraderie that takes place during the lessons is great to see. Everyone becomes fast friends.” Fleury’s instructor, Meaghan Cameron, said her partner is definitely working hard. “I really appreciate how much effort Mathieu (Fleury) is putting in to this,” Cameron said. “It is a lot of hard work.” Cameron added the dances the celebrities will be performing are moves most students do not learn until they have had at least a year or more of training. Last year’s event raised $25,000 for the charity. The money provides families of children with physical disabilities with financial assistance for mobility equipment, communication devices such as wheelchairs, walkers, and braces. It also helps fund a fully accessible Easter Seals camps, and funding for alternative recreational programs. “Dancing with the Stars for

Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury practices his moves with Fred Astaire Dance Studio instructor Meaghan Cameron. The councillor, along with seven other local celebrities, will be competing to win bragging rights as this year’s Dancing with the Stars for Easter Seals Kids champ on Oct. 12. Easter Seals Kids is a fun and fabulous evening for a great cause,” said Rebecca Leikin, development officer for Easter Seals Ontario. “We have a fantastic lineup of local celebrity dancers who are working hard to put together routines with their professional partners. It will be an event you won’t want to miss.”

The other celebrity dancers competing against Fleury are Lynsey Bennett, who was Miss Canada 2003; CTV’s Leanne Cusack; Ottawa lawyer Lawrence Greenspon; Don Martin, host of CTV’s Power Play; Majic 100 hosts Trisha Owens and Kurt Stoodley; and Mary Taggart, editor-in-chief of Ottawa at Home magazine.

Each dancing team will perform two dances. For Fleury, he will be performing the tango and ballroom dancing. Last year’s champion, Elizabeth Manley will return to act as one of the celebrity judges, but the audience is also encouraged to vote for their favourite dance team by purchasing voting tickets for

$10 each or three for $25. Tickets for the event are $100 per person. A silent auction and raffle will also take place for $20 each. To reserve your tickets, please call 613226-3051, or email Leikin at rleikin@easterseals.org. For more information about Easter Seals Ontario or to donate, visit www.easterseals.org.

Child care cited as top among community programming priorities Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

We buy direct and pass on the Savings to you!!!

Ottawa-East EMC - Thursday, October 11, 2012

Your Community Newspaper

EMC news - To better serve the community, the Glebe Neighbourhood Activities Group announced it intends to offer more child care programming. The volunteer group held its annual general meeting on Sept. 26 and executive director Mary Tsai Davies stated the group plans to spend the next five years expanding its programming and offering more child care services. Tsai Davies said interest in programs at the centre continues to rise and one area families had said they would like to see more programming was in child care. “We are looking at maintaining our core programming while looking at adding new child care programming,” Tsai Davies said. “Enrollment and interest have increased significantly over the past years.” The addition of children’s programming, she said, is a result of the centre preparing for when full day kindergarten is implemented at public schools

in the Glebe and how child care services at the centre will adapt to this change. The decision to make child care programming a priority was a result of a strategic planning survey sent out over the summer, which was filled out by more than 100 residents.

We are looking at maintaining our core programming while looking at adding new child care programming. MARY TSAI DAVIES

“There were a lot of good suggestions,” Tsai Davies said. “And we are considering putting some of them into play.” One of the issues brought to the attention of the board was the long waiting lists for children to get into certain programs. “It is our objective for sure to try and scale back the lists,”

Tsai Davies said. “We are looking at addressing some of the difficulties surrounding that concern and one of those difficulties is space.” Because of the increased interest in after school, summer and day activities from the centre, programs are already run out of the Glebe Community Centre and four satellite locations across the neighbourhood. “We are stretched all over to help accommodate,” Tsai Davies said. Other ways the group has moved forward to deal with the growing demand in programming was to expand its staff. Three full-time program coordinators were hired, which Tsai Davies said has helped keep things running smoothly. Members also voted on some constitutional changes at the annual general meeting, which she said included the length of time for members to sit on the board. The updated constitution is posted on the group’s website at www.gnag. ca. The activities group is a not-for-profit group which runs social, cultural and recreational activities for all ages at the centre and its satellite locations.

Coun. Chernushenko curious about city’s longboard rules Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Should skateboards be allowed on the sidewalk or on the road? What about rollerblades? Capital Coun. David Chernushenko wants those questions answered. While bicycles are classified as vehicles and therefore banned from sidewalks, skateboards and especially longboards have no such classification. Longboards travel faster than stan-

dard skateboards and are more often used for transportation than tricks. Chernushenko said the growing popularity of longboards should prompt the city to look at how the rules of the road apply to the long skateboards. “They fall into this gray area … not allowed on the sidewalk and not allowed on the road,” he said. “I feel we should be moving forward with some way of legitimizing them.”

Chernushenko said he’d like to see clearer rules to tell longboarders that they belong on the road rather than the sidewalk, with similar enforcement as police would consider for bicycles. He’s happy to promote emissionfree ways to travel, the councillor said, but more clarity is needed. Rideau-Rockcliffe Coun. Peter Clark said he has fielded at least one call about longboarders whizzing by pedestrians on the sidewalk.

EMC news - A landscaping project to add parking and create a permanent outside picnic area for the Glebe Community Centre will not go ahead until next year. The Glebe Neighbourhood Activities Group has been working towards adding more parking and an outside play area at the Glebe Community Centre for the past three years. The project was set to begin this summer and was delayed to this fall, said Mary Tsai Davies, the group’s executive director, at its annual general meeting on Sept. 26. Now the project will not begin until 2013 because more public consultation is needed, “It was supposed to happen this fall, but will be pushed back to the spring,” said Tsai Davies, citing safety concerns for the delay. “We are trying to completely eliminate the danger of children weaving through cars and walking behind cars by moving the sidewalk three feet (one metre) to the property line,” she said. The project will increase the available parking from six spaces and one handicap space to about 18. Bicycle racks will also be added. The current parking area will see grass installed and

Old Ottawa South first for new ‘SWAT’ zoning fixes Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

W W W. L I G H T T H E N I G H T . C A / O N

EMC news - The city’s answer to communities’ cries to save neighbourhood character is coming to Old Ottawa South this month. The very ďŹ rst project for the zoning “SWATâ€? team promised by Mayor Jim Watson and planning committee chairman Peter Hume during the city’s planning summit this spring will get underway this month – before the team has even been fully assembled. The city has hired a planning consultant, Nancy Meloche, to look at a small section of Colonel By Drive where homes have come under pressure for redevelopment. City planning staff who will be working on future SWAT projects are currently being assembled into a new team, following a restructuring of the city’s planning department. Meloche will be speaking to residents and surveying the existing homes between Grosvenor and Bronson avenues. City staff declined to provide further details about the project until it is ofďŹ cially unveiled sometime this month, city spokewoman Jocelyne

DAVID CHERNUSHENKO

Turner said in an email. The aim is to try and protect some of the character in this small area along the Rideau Canal, said Capital Coun. David Chernushenko. “What are the attributes that people want to save?� he asked. That idea is in contrast to the intention of a community design plan – a lengthy process neighbourhood groups often clamor for to establish growth and development standards. But community design plans are really intended to guide the growth of an area, Hume said last spring, so the SWAT team will have a different focus: to protect what’s

already there. The process is intended to be “surgical,â€? Hume said: geographically limited, and quick, likely under six months. Community design plans can take years and some areas can see signiďŹ cant redevelopment and change before the process is completed. “In cases like this, areas that seem to be a target of quite aggressive development, you have to act quickly or give it up,â€? Chernushenko said. “If you wait ‌ there is no character left to save.â€? One strong option is “downzoningâ€? the area, meaning the zoning could be downgraded to set a lower height limit and smaller massing for new buildings. A heritage overlay is another possibility, Chernushenko said. But the councillor said the exercise is not intended to prevent change entirely. “I’ll support it if that’s what the neighbours want ‌ (I will be) supporting them in their quest to better protect the character without stopping change outright,â€? he said. Meloche is expected to gather a group of stakeholders for a preliminary meeting this month. R0011650589

Dreams take flight at Walt Disney World Theresa Fritz Theresa.fritz@metroland.com

EMC community – One hundred and twenty-eight children enjoyed ice cream as they watched the sun come up aboard an Air Canada flight staffed by a pirate crew as they made their way to the “happiest place on earth.” And if that sounds like the start of the best day ever, it only got better as the annual Dreams Take Flight Ottawa trip to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla. touched down shortly after 9 a.m. on Sept. 25. By 10:30 a.m., children who might never have had the chance to visit the theme park could barely contain their excitement – eager to experience everything Disney had to offer. The day began bright and early at 4 a.m., as parents and children arrived at Ottawa’s Canada Reception Centre, where the prime minister and other dignitaries fly from, in anticipation of the 5:30 a.m. flight. Once inside the hangar, all were greeted by nearly 100 smiling Dreams Take Flight Ottawa volunteers who turned what could have been a chaotic scene into a sea of excitement and organization. Each child and volunteer received a uniform to wear on the trip. “This is just incredible,” said first-time Dreams trip volunteer Nida Kealey. “We are going to have such fun.” She recalled how her now 18-year-old autistic son went on a Disney trip with the organization nine years ago and it was the best thing he could have done. He has since travelled on a plane 10 times and she credits the Dreams trip with giving him the confidence to do whatever he sets his mind to. Since October 1995, Dreams Take Flight Ottawa has given children with physical, mental or social challenges an incredible day where they can be carefree and make memories to last forever. A total of nine hours was spent at Disney World including meals and shopping time.

Dreams Take Flight Ottawa uses specific criteria to select children for the trip. Among the criteria, children with special needs must represent various agencies, be between the ages of six and 12 and have never visited a Disney theme park before. Making special memories happen is not cheap. This year’s trip cost $195,000 and would not have been possible without assistance from organizations like Air Canada, which donated the plane for the trip and Shell, which donated the fuel. The Air Canada pilots and flight crew for the trip also donated their time, taking a vacation day to be part of the magical experience that not only included dressing up for the flight but also coming to the park later in the day to enjoy the rides. Other corporate sponsors like Mark’s, Crocs and Bentley stepped up again to assist with clothing, shoes and backpacks for volunteers and children. And even more sponsors support the trip and the charity in other ways. Dreams Take Flight is a 100-per-cent volunteer-run organization. Various fundraising events held over the course of the year help top off coffers so everything is paid for on the trip. Children also received spending money to bring home a special Disney souvenir. For some parents, the trip marked the first time their children were either away from them or travelling to the United States without them. But, the fear of having a child gone for nearly 24 hours was not greater than their desire for them to have the experience of a lifetime. Dunrobin’s Laura Taffinder, 8, was recommended for the trip by the teacher at her school in Kanata. “She is very, very excited,” said her mom Tracy Taffinder, who said she was not nervous about her daughter travelling without her. “I am so excited for her. It really is the chance of a lifetime.” Laura even managed to get a full night’s sleep before the

Dreams Take Flight volunteers Mike Banville, Wendy Robblee (with mouse ears) and trip participant Kideyn Matthias are all smiles and they move along the circuit before taking the 15-metre plunge. Children, volunteers and even the media got to spend nine hours at Disney enjoying the sights, sounds and most of all the rides during hot and humid Florida weather on Sept. 25. flight, with mom having no trouble waking her up bright and early. This year’s trip to Disney World featured a number of siblings sharing the magical experience. Among them were sisters Shaily and Feyah Turner of Orléans. “We are very excited,” 12-year-old Shaily said on the plane, noting the sisters couldn’t wait to ride the popular Splash Mountain ride. “We have been looking it up (on) the computer for quite a while.” The first rides chosen by groups the minute they walked through Disney’s gates were either Splash Mountain or Space Mountain, and they were revisited frequently throughout the day. While the water ride sends riders hurling down a 15-metre water drop and the other is a roller coaster ride in the dark, the

screams heard were not of fear but excitement. As the day went on, the smiles got wider. While most of the children on the trip were English, a number of French youngsters enjoyed themselves as well. One of those was Denisha Poulain Levasseur. She had a great time driving a race car on the Speedway ride and she kept saying she could not believe she was doing it. For some volunteers, this year’s trip likely marked their last with the organization. “It has been awesome. The kids are great. We’ve had a great group today,” said 2012 Dreams Take Flight Ottawa president Nicole Banville midway through the Disney World trip day. Banville is stepping down as a director with the organization and the most recent trip marked her final one.

“It is bittersweet. I will miss everybody. I will probably hang a bit, maybe volunteer,” she mused. “I think the kids have had a great time from what I have seen,” Banville concluded. Her husband Mike, the organization’s vice president, has been on five trips to Disney World and he said the experience is very gratifying. As the day wound its way to a close, and all the rides has been thoroughly ridden, children and volunteers made their way to Disney World’s famous Main Street for some souvenir shopping. Each child received $30 to find that special memento of a day not to be forgotten anytime soon. The group arrived back at the hangar at Orlando International Airport and boarded the steps to the waiting plane before the 9 p.m. takeoff.

While the trip down to Florida had been filled with the sounds of excited children, the return trip was much quieter and many huddled down in the first class sleeper bunks to dream about the incredible day that had become reality. Once back inside the Canada Reception Centre, each child received a Bentley donated backpack filled with gifts to mark celebrating their special day. From there, they were ushered into the main part of the hangar where a red carpet was rolled out and parents waited eagerly for their children. “This was the best day ever,” one child was overheard telling his parents. No doubt, a sentiment shared between many other parents and children as they reunited after a long, exhausting but thrilling day.

Preparing for Ottawa’s vital green-bin change

C

hances are your garbage day is changing Oct. 29. If it’s not, you’re still going to have to get used to differences in the way trash is collected. For one thing, garbage will only be picked up every two weeks, while green bin materials will be collected weekly. Just shy of 160,000 households will soon get a letter telling them their garbage day is changing and letting

them know that text message, email and Twitter alerts are available for residents by signing up on the city’s collection calendar web page. Typically, changing the way someone’s trash is collected is enough to start a public uproar. Residents were unusually quiet last year when the city held public meetings about waste collection, but you can expect the outcry to get louder as the date of the changes draws closer.

But we hope that cooler heads prevail. Is taking out a green bin instead of a garbage bag every week such an onerous task? The benefits of diverting that recyclable organic waste away from the landfill cannot be overstated. Besides building the city’s new light-rail system, closing a landfill and finding somewhere else to bury our garbage would be the most expensive thing this city would ever have to do.

Currently, 42 per cent of household waste is diverted from the landfill through green, blue and black bin recycling. The switch would push the city’s organics diversion rate up by 50 per cent (about 40,000 tonnes), incrementally closer to the city’s goal of 60 per cent before the waste collection contract is renewed in 2016. Places like Sweden have loftier goals. That country already diverts 80 per cent of its waste away from landfills.

Complaints about the “mess� of green bins abound, but we have to wonder if those people realize that messy waste would still have to go into their garbage bags if they chose not to put it in their green bin. For every person who has given up on recycling organic waste because they found maggots in their bin, there is another person who has never faced that problem because they learned to freeze meat waste and put it into the bin

on pickup day. The city’s website, ottawa.ca/greenbin, is full of other common-sense tips to make the process cleaner and easier. Starting Oct. 29, people who choose to put their organic waste in the trash instead of the green bin will just have an extra week for it to decompose and cause odour. Or, they can simply put it into a different bin. It’s just a matter of being willing to adapt.

Our civic gambling addiction CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

N

ew irritations are added to our lives every day. The latest is the fact that lottery tickets are on sale virtually everywhere and everywhere you go people in front of you are buying lottery tickets, while you wait and wait. You’ve got a magazine or chocolate bar or a package of razor blades to pay for and you can’t do it because the guy in front of you keeps buying tickets and winning more tickets and buying more tickets and winning again. The guy could be spending his money on something that could be improving the quality of his family’s life. Then he wouldn’t be standing at the cash clogging things up for everybody else. “Winner! Gagnant!,� the machine keeps exclaiming, way too cheerfully, while he keeps buying more tickets with his “winnings� and while you mutter under your breath about the decline of civilization and wonder if you should start ordering your razor blades online. In such small ways does gambling make life miserable for innocent bystanders. People are addicted to lottery tickets; stores are addicted to selling them. But before you spend too much time condemning these clients of the gambling industry, take a minute to look at who’s setting the example for them. That’s right. Our governments – as hooked on gambling as the unsmiling slot-machine feeders you see in the casinos. Exhibit A: The mayor of Ottawa and the city council – or at least most members of it – drooling over the prospect of a big shiny casino being located downtown somewhere

(and just incidentally helping to doom the horse racing industry when the slots are taken away from the race track). The mayor and council could be spending time, not to mention money, on ways to improve the lives of their constituents. Think of infrastructure, roads that don’t cave in, neighbourhoods that work, transit, traffic congestion. Instead, they are standing at the counter, waiting for the lottery ticket to pay off. Carrying the metaphor to its logical conclusion, taxpayers are the ones behind the counter making the decision. Is the casino a winner or not? We can decide that, either by encouraging the mayor’s casino dream or by frightening him off it. The final council decision will take quite a bit of time and the mayor did not get where he is today by not listening to people. So the question is, does the casino pay off for us? How does it pay off? Do tourists flock to Ottawa? Remember that some casinos in border cities have been doing badly. Do customers of the casino in Gatineau flock back? Do the customers drop big money in local restaurants and stores or do they just stay in the casino? Are there big tax revenues to be had? Are casinos an adornment to the downtown landscape or a drag on it? No one actually knows. All we really know is that gambling addiction is on the rise, with lots of social costs and that a new casino is certainly not going to reduce those. We have learned, from years of watching the industry develop, that there is nothing classy about casinos. We know that casinos are not really for the high-end, fashionably dressed tourists you see in the advertisements. They are also for people who can’t afford to gamble. Are we doing those people a favour by making it more convenient for them to lose their money? Are we doing the city a favour by doing this? Those questions don’t seem to concern the mayor and most of the councillors as they stand at the counter waiting for the machine to tell them they are winners, while the rest of us stand impatiently behind wanting them to move on and do something useful.

Public speaks out about casino push Continued from page 1

The OLG hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t said what the revenue-sharing agreement would be for new casinos or how much Ottawa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or another eastern-Ontario municipality â&#x20AC;&#x201C; could stand to gain from welcoming a casino. The city receives about $4 million a year in revenue from the raceway slots, but the province is cancelling that program. Despite the support of the mayor and all but one of the city councillors on the finance committee, almost all of the 32 members of the public who spoke to the committee on Oct. 2 said the push for a casino was too hasty and not based on any evidence of the potential benefits â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or consequences â&#x20AC;&#x201C; of a new casino in Ottawa. Adam Awad questioned why the committee would consider approving the idea of a casino before receiving any evidence for or against it. Watson said city council needs to decide whether it wants to head down that road before it charges staff with researching the impacts and benefits of a casino. Liam Mooney, spokesperson for a new casino-focused community group called A Better Bet, said the group is most concerned that the pro-

cess is being rushed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This matters to people. You need to consider what people are saying,â&#x20AC;? Mooney said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Take the time. Do not rush into this.â&#x20AC;? A couple delegates were in favour of pursuing a casino, including Noel Buckley of Ottawa Tourism. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Increasing the variety of attractions in the city â&#x20AC;Ś will help attract more visitors,â&#x20AC;? he said. Repatriating some casino revenue that currently goes to the Quebec government through Lac Leamy would boost gambling addiction treatment in Ontario and add money to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coffers to help pay for things like infrastructure renewal, Watson said. The mayor emphasized that the Oct. 10 decision would merely kick off the process, and there will be ample opportunity for public input and research as the process moves forward. The mayor and other councillors, including planning committee chairman Coun. Peter Hume downplayed the impact of agreeing in principle to investigate a casino. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have already said within the bounds of the City of Ottawa that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d accept gaming,â&#x20AC;? with slots and gaming tables at the raceway, Hume said.

Time for a national discussion

C

anada has no abortion law. I find this troubling. In 1969, the Liberal government of Pierre Trudeau decriminalized abortion. Abortions could occur, providing a committee of doctors deemed it necessary for a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health. In 1988, the Supreme Court ruled that caveat within the law was unconstitutional and cancelled the law, ultimately punting it back to Parliament to create a new law. Parliament never did, so Canada has no abortion law. All Canada has is a definition of child, which states that a child is not considered a human being until it has exited the womb. Unlike other Western countries, which have determined restrictions on abortion â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including gestational age limits â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in Canada, it is perfectly legal for a woman to abort a baby at full-term, rather than to deliver it. Because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something wrong with this. Two weeks ago, Conservative MP Stephen Woodworth put forth a motion asking to strike a parliamentary committee to review the definition of child under Canadian law. The motion was defeated. What followed was a media frenzy, pouncing on the â&#x20AC;&#x153;right-wing Christian

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse Conservativesâ&#x20AC;? in Harperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cabinet â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including Rona Ambrose, minister for the Status of Women, who evidently wanted to â&#x20AC;&#x153;strip away womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reproductive rights in Canada.â&#x20AC;? A poster circulated widely on social media sites stated, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Minister for the Status of Women just voted to criminalize abortion.â&#x20AC;? Mainstream media outlets claimed the Conservatives were â&#x20AC;&#x153;re-opening the abortion law debate in Canada.â&#x20AC;? Evidently, people failed to read the nuance of this story. For one thing, Canada has no abortion law â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we have a vacuum -- so â&#x20AC;&#x153;re-opening the abortion law debateâ&#x20AC;? is a misnomer. For another, Ambrose voted in favour of striking a committee to re-examine the definition of child under the law, which is hardly a vote to criminalize abortion. Finally, as far as I can tell, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never had a debate on abortion in this country, at least not since the 1960s â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and certainly not within the lifetimes of women who would currently be affected by such a discussion.

In the interest of full disclosure, I qualify as neither anti-abortion nor pro-choice. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always been rather wishywashy on the subject of abortion. On the one hand, I think women should have some say on whether or not to carry a baby to term, particularly in cases where there has been abuse or where a woman is not positioned to care for a baby for a wide variety of reasons and of course where there is a medical reason. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve supported slightly less than a handful of girlfriends as theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made the choice to abort or not and I like to think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done so without judgment. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve also been a consistent supporter of stem cell research. On the other hand, having been through three pregnancies myself, I believe there is a point where the fetus should qualify as a child under the law. At some point, the right of the fetus must be equivalent or greater than mine, as a woman. What that point is remains a huge grey area for me and, I would wager, for

most Canadians. Ultimately, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a shame that MPs, including the prime minister, voted against a motion that may have helped to clarify this issue. This is not merely an issue of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Christian right.â&#x20AC;? If their voices seem the loudest, perhaps itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because they have stronger convictions. If pro-choice representatives in Parliament feel so strongly about womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rights, let them be brave enough to raise the issue in the House, create a law and put the issue to bed once and for all. Because, in the absence of a law, we are left with empty rhetoric. Do we prefer a Canada where pro-choice advocates feel comfortable overtly defaming cabinet ministers, suggesting â&#x20AC;&#x201C; mistakenly â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that they would see a return to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;backroom butcherâ&#x20AC;? type of abortions that occurred in Canada prior to 1969? On the flip side, do we want antiabortion protesters to gather at busy intersections â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as they did at Montreal Road and St. Laurent Boulevard last week with placards reading â&#x20AC;&#x153;stop killing babiesâ&#x20AC;?? This helps no one and hurts many. The empty rhetoric should be replaced by a national conversation. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talk about it and see if we can figure out, under the law, our collective values on abortion, grounded in science and ethics.

Owner prefers previous plan Continued from page 1

SUBMITTED

The new proposal, right, is contrasted with the previous, rejected proposal for 174 Glebe Ave. in the image above. The developer prefers his previous plan, but said he is willing to go ahead with what residents prefer.

Notice of Public Open House Main Street Renewal Project Functional, Preliminary Design and Detailed Design: Main Street (Echo Drive to the Rideau River), Lees Avenue (Main Street to Chestnut Street), and Rideau River Drive (Main Street to 130m south of Main Street) Wednesday October 17, 2012 6 to 9 p.m. Saint Paul University (Guigues Hall, Atrium) 223 Main Street, Ottawa

As the property is already zoned for and at one time was a retirement home, Turner confirmed the builder will not need to seek any variances to build. “The existing zoning permits a retirement home with a maximum of 47 residents,” Turner wrote in an email. News of the updated plans for the property was announced at a Glebe Community Association meeting on Sept. 25. Residents, who referred to the building as a 19-unit building, raised some concern, but since no official application is available for them to see, comments were guarded. Planning committee chairman Bobby Galbreath said the potential new proposal does make the former one more appetizing. “We could say in view of the 47 units, you might as well

go ahead with the 19,” Glabreath said at the meeting. No official comment from the association has been made on this new proposal, as the association is waiting for an official application to be submitted. The new plan was first referred to at city council on Aug. 30 when Jeff Polowin, a lawyer representing the developer, indicated this could be the next step. “If you turn it down, you put (the developer) in a position of spending tens of thousands of dollars to fight the city (at the Ontario Municipal Board), or to build something the neighbours really aren’t going to like and make more money,” Polowin said on Aug. 30. The developer’s architect, Jim Colizza echoed Polowin statement. “You can’t compare this (proposed) building to what you would get under the by-

law,” Colizza said. He said if he designed an unattractive “box” as the current zoning allowed, the developer wouldn’t have had to go through any consultation or rezoning process.That, Staltari said, is what he will do, if that is what residents prefer. “One or the other, at this point, I am indifferent,” Staltari said. “But my heart is in the 17-unit.” Turner said that if the proposal meets the provisions of the existing zoning; it would still require site plan approval and an application would have to be made. Staltari will added he will go ahead with the OMB hearing either way, because he has lost trust in the community and would like to hear the ruling on his proposal for the 17 unit building. The hearing will take place in the new year. With files from Laura Mueller

Project Description The City of Ottawa is undertaking the Functional, Preliminary and Detailed Design for the renewal of Main Street and portions of Lees Avenue and Rideau River Drive (see map). The proposed works include the introduction, rehabilitation and/or replacement of various components of the street infrastructure within the right-of-ways. The project designs will have regard for the streets’ various planned functions and the various community contexts along the project limits. Project Result and Timing The project will result in the preparation and approval of detailed designs for the reconstruction of the streets. This includes the layout of the surface elements including sidewalk, cycling, transit and vehicle provisions, street lighting and streetscape improvements, and solutions for below-ground infrastructure. Methods to manage traffic and disruption during the construction period will also be recommended. It is anticipated that the designs will be completed by the end of 2013. Construction will occur in accordance with the City’s capital planning decisions, in phases which are not yet determined. Public Involvement and Public Open House A Main Street Design Working Group has been formed to guide the planning and design process. This group consists of a wide range of agency, community, and business stakeholders. General public input and comment will be welcomed throughout the project process. At this time all interested persons are invited to attend a Public Open House: At the meeting, information regarding the study process, project objectives and existing conditions will be presented. City Staff and their consultants will be available to answer questions and engage in discussion. This meeting will provide an opportunity for participants to learn about the project and to provide comments in a casual environment. Comment/questionnaire forms will be provided for written comments. Environmental Assessment The project is being planned to meet the requirements of Ontario’s Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) and the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act that may apply.

Committee endorses final Lansdowne committments Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Shops, restaurants and football will make a renewed Lansdowne Park a success, according to presentations by the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s partners on the project before the finance committee gave Lansdowneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s redevelopment its final blessing on Oct. 2. Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans was the only member of the 11-member finance and economic development committee to vote against the final Lansdowne partnership agreements with the Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group. Deans said she hopes Lansdowne will become a success, but she had concerns about creeping costs, including an additional $12 million in capital authority the committee was asked to approve. The rest of the committee, include the chairman, Mayor Jim Watson, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hesitate to express appreciation to group and city staff for the final financial plan and legal agreements that will make the longdiscussed redevelopment a reality. Admitting that there will be challenges and no plan is perfect, the mayor said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to move forward on Lansdowne. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The period of talk is over. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re now moving into the

action phase,â&#x20AC;? Watson told the committee, calling the project â&#x20AC;&#x153;an opportunity of a lifetime.â&#x20AC;? Full city council will be asked to approve the project on Oct. 10 and major construction on the new components would be allowed to start as soon as Oct. 15. MORE VISITORS?

Lansdowne will welcome between 7.5 million and 10 million visitors each year, said Roger Greenberg, head of OSEG â&#x20AC;&#x201C; more than the group had originally anticipated when it calculated how much it could earn by selling naming rights for the parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s facilities. While Greenberg framed the volume of visitors as a positive thing, the perceived increase raised flags for councillors. The wardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s councillor, David Chernushenko, and Deans asked what impact the number of visitors would have on transportation plans for Lansdowne. The number of projected visitors hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t gone up, Greenberg said.

Greenberg said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just adding them all together when it comes to selling naming rights.â&#x20AC;? Previous city reports on the Lansdowne redevelopment indicate that eight million tourists visit Ottawa each year. Whether or not there are more visitors than originally estimated, transportation is going to be a concern - a message conveyed by Chernushenko and other councillors, including transportation chairwoman Coun. Marianne Wilkinson.

NAMING RIGHTS

But whether the site will still be called Lansdowne Park is another question altogether, Greenberg said. The group plans to sell naming rights for different parts of the development to willing sponsors in a bid to earn $50 million in revenue â&#x20AC;&#x201C; far more than the original estimate of $15.7 million. It will be up to the city if it still wants to keep the name Lansdowne Park for the urban park portion of the site. The naming-rights revenue would be earned by seeking a major sponsor and smaller sponsorships for the other components, including the stadium, mixed-use retail and office area.

Greenberg said he still wants to find a way to recognize the stadiumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s historic namesake, Frank Clair. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very sensitive to the history â&#x20AC;Ś We really want to connect with the past,â&#x20AC;? Greenberg said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be mindful of the names that are there, but we need to ensure the naming rights sponsor has a major role to play as well.â&#x20AC;? STADIUM DESIGN

The man behind the striking, wooden â&#x20AC;&#x153;veilâ&#x20AC;? redesign for the football stadium is no longer working on the project. Rob Claiborne penned the design, but he is no longer

with the design firm in charge of the project, Cannon Design. While city councillors asked if Claiborne could be made available to help review changes to the design, Greenberg said relations between the architect and his former firm â&#x20AC;&#x153;arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly cordial.â&#x20AC;? Those changes include removing 14 metres of roof and box beams from the north side roof to address snow accumulation issues and make the stadium more symmetrical; changes to simplify the construction and maintenance of the wooden veil structure; and reducing the size of the canopies covering the stadiumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s north-side entrances. RETAIL

Greenberg said despite concerns aired in the media, retailers have showed a great deal of interest in signing on to the development. He dropped a couple more names of merchants that have signed on to Lansdowne: two westcoast restaurant chains, Joey and LoCal, as well as South Street Burgers, Il Fornello and a store called Sporting Life. Empire Cinemas, LCBO and Whole Foods had previously confirmed their tenancy. The city will aim to bring the Grey Cup to the capital in four years, either in 2017 or 2018.

EMC community - Old Ottawa East is rolling out pumpkins to help raise a little money for community initiatives. The Community Activities Group in Old Ottawa East will hold its annual pumpkin sale on Oct. 13 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. With two sale locations, Brantwood Park and the Old Town Hall Community Centre, executive director of the activities group Carol Workun said the group has the neighbourhood covered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is pretty popular, many members of the community come out and make a tradition,â&#x20AC;? she said. This annual event began in 2009 when the group partnered with a community member who was raising money for their sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hockey team. The fundraiser grew from there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the only fundraiser we hold each year and the community has been widespread in its support,â&#x20AC;? Workun said. The money raised at the event goes towards programming initiatives the group provides, such as youth nights. Workun also indicated some of the money may help fund a new community event in the upcoming year. Featuring pumpkins grown locally at Fosters Family Farm in North Gower, the sale this

Ping Pong event surpasses goal Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - A recent ping pong fundraiser in the Byward Market was a resounding success when organizers announced the event doubled its original goal. More than 250 people played a little ping pong for charity on Sept. 28 at the third Ottawa Charity Ping Pong Tournament at the SpinBin located at 310 Dalhousie St. The event was held in support of four charities: Do it for Daron, the Youth Services Bureau, Operation Come Home and Christie Lake Kids. After covering some overhead costs, Michael Kirkpatrick, organizer and treasurer for the event, announced each charity will receive $5,000. “The real winners here are the charities,” he said. “This event was all about raising their profiles and raising money for them. That was what it was all about.” The last two events, organized by Kirkpatrick and his friends, raised a total of $7,000 for charity. This year, organizers had aimed to raise $10,000, but surpassed that goal by $16,000. “It really was amazing,” he said. The event offered ping pong enthusiasts a chance to compete for prizes, but the real goal, Kirkpatrick said, was to have fun. “I think the best thing was it was nice to see everyone come together to help raise money for the event, it was great we managed to make it happen,” Kirkpatrick said. The event promised and delivered a good time for participants, Kirkpatrick said, with musical guests Rory Gardiner and The Pelts setting the mood for the players

Laine Silver. Each beat out the other players to win the top three prizes of the night. Silver later told Kirkpatrick the evening made her feel like a child again, playing ping pong in her parents’ basement. Silver added her brother, who lives in Newfoundland, would be making the trip to Ottawa

next year to attend the event. Kirkpatrick said the event was such as success thanks to his friends and fellow organizers: Tristan Hanington from K6 Media who helped with promotion, Wendy Leung from Beyond Events, and Verdun Windows and Doors for offering to be the event’s title sponsor.

Sandy Hill housing looking for more space EMC community - Volunteers say more community space is needed at the public housing complex in Strathcona Heights for it to realize its potential. The Strathcona Heights community house held a walking tour on Oct. 1 to show Mayor Jim Watson, Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury and Bay Coun. Mark Taylor the need to open more space in the Ottawa Community Housing complex for programming. “We need your help to make it what it needs to be,” said Ruweida Shire, the founder of the community’s homework club. The residents want to use already existing space in the buildings. To make it work, the residents feel more funding is needed, to help staff the rooms. “We would like to use the rooms more fully,” said Ahmed Omer, a youth coordinator. Fleury thanked the residents for organizing the event. “You have helped us see the benefit of what it could be,” Fleury said. The Sandy Hill housing already runs a number of programs for its residents. All done through volunteer and one Ottawa Community Housing staff member, the residents have a sewing class, an afterschool homework club and fitness for women.

Having more rooms, six in total, would allow the complex to spread activities to all the corners of the buildings and have a greater reach to the residents who live in the buildings. Watson said the tour really helped him see what the community was talking about. “It was a good eye opener today,” Watson said. Taylor agreed. “It definitely made it a much more compelling argument,” he said. Watson added he will work with Fleury and community housing staff to help make the facilities work better for the residents and programs. The walking tour piggybacked the unveiling of a mural project at the corner of Mann Avenue and Chapel Street. The event celebrated the accomplishment of a new Paint it Up! program mural. Gerald Dragon, Sandy Hill Community Health Centre’s youth coordinator, said the project helped clean up a graffiti covered wall, allowing it to become something the youth could be proud of. “I have had my eye on this wall since I started at the centre,” he said. Cassandra Dickie and Mike Davis from Ottawa Urban Arts helped the youth turn the wall into a work of art. Dragon enlisted the help of 11 young people to work on the mural, all between the ages

Cops set up shop in city hall On Oct. 2, Centretown community police officer Const. Khoa Hoang marked the official opening of the new Centretown Community Police Centre on the second floor of city hall, which is closer to his ‘new BFF (best friend forever),’ Mayor Jim Watson. The centre’s controversial move from its former Somerset Street location will be an improvement because the high level of foot traffic in city hall will create more opportunities for residents to visit and interact with the centre. Around 10,000 people pass through city hall each day, the mayor said.

Ontario’s First-Ever Immigration Strategy Earlier this year, in response to challenges with Canada’s current immigration system and federal cuts to Ontario’s settlement funding, our government announced that we are developing our first-ever immigration strategy. As someone who immigrated to Canada 24 years ago, I am pleased that our province is taking this strong step towards ensuring the social and economic success of new Canadians, helping to build a stronger economy for us all. Ontario remains the number one destination for newcomers to Canada, who make up 30 per cent of our province’s work force. However, we are the only province currently without an immigration agreement with the federal government. We are developing a new provincial immigration strategy to help to inform and shape discussions with the federal government towards an agreement. In the spring, we created the Expert Roundtable on Immigration to assess how immigration can best support Ontario’s economic development and help immigrants succeed. We asked them to provide their ideas on how we can address issues of immigrant selection, settlement and integration, and examine how immigration can best support Ontario’s economic and labour market growth. The Roundtable was chaired by Julia Deans - former CEO of CivicAction - and was composed of 13 leaders and experts from the business, academic, economic and immigration sectors who met through the spring and early summer and consulted with some of Canada’s leading economists, researchers, and senior members of the public service from both the Governments of Ontario and Canada.

In 2010, Lesia Maruschak was diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia, an incurable form of cancer that typically affects men in their 60s and 70s. She has since committed time to raising money for the Light the Night campaign

Walk to shine light on blood cancers Riverside Park woman looks to raise money to find cure for diseases Eddie Rwema eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC news - Being told that you suffer from an incurable form of cancer is devastating news for someone to hear. However, a Riverside Park woman with chronic blood cancer is putting a brave face on amid her struggle, bringing hope and working hard to raise money to help find cure. Fifty-year-old Lesia Maruschak is a mother of two and was a healthy, hard working public servant until 2010, when she was diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia, a cancer that typically affects men in their 60s and 70s. Since then Maruschak decided that “Live, Act, Be Grateful” would be her motto and that she would adopt a holistic means of healing, one that included her body, psyche and her spirit. “One of the first things that the hematologist that first diagnosed me told me was that – (my cancer) was in the early stages, but it is not like some of the other cancers where stage one would mean good news and the chances

of survival were fantastic. ‘It doesn’t work that way with your type of cancer,’ ” she said. Maruschak is spearheading this year’s Light the Night walk to find a cure for leukemia and other blood cancers. “Cancer is a big word, a scary word. It came into my life uninvited, quietly, and unexpectedly,” said Maruschak. “I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. It is a challenging journey because of the type of the blood cancer that I have which is incurable.” The Light The Night walk is Canada’s night to pay tribute and bring hope to all those affected by blood cancer. On Oct. 13, Maruschak will join thousands of people walking in twilight carrying illuminated balloons from the Marion Dewar Plaza outside city hall to Pretoria Bridge and back. “The campaign has been phenomenal to me, because I face an incurable cancer and I know the only way we are going to arrive at a cure is research and research comes about through funding,” she said. Last year, Maruschak and her team members had a goal

of raising $2,500, but at the end of that campaign they had more than $30,000. Her formal goal this year is raising $20,000 as a team and $15,000 personally. “By engaging a group of people in trying to do something in common good has brought a lot of meaning to people’s lives when they are in situations that are very difficult,” said Maruschak. DIFFICULT JOURNEY

A graduate of the University of Saskatchewan and the University of Ottawa, Maruschak worked for the federal public service for most of her professional life, until her life was suddenly thrown into turmoil in November of 2010, when she discovered she had cancer. “That becomes one of the most difficult things to cope with,” she said. Regardless, she said the disease has offered her the opportunity to choose what was most important in her life and to put it first and how she defines her priorities. “There is no medical treatment to pursue at this time,” said Maruschak. She said she has been very fortunate to have a supporting family and she has been strong spiritually and that has helped her cope. “When I was diagnosed, I

realized that I was definitely less interested in just doing and achieving things,” Maruschak said. “The very quiet and the very simple things became important to me. “My religious side, which is a very personal thing, became a huge priority in my life. It very much changed the nature of how I define my priorities in life.” She added that cancer changed who she is. “I had to face death and choose life.” “This has not been an easy process, nor is it over,” Maruschak said. “I am on an ongoing healing journey where each day is a blessing, each friendship a gift. I no longer plan things for a time in the future. I choose to live now, today.” Her message to others struggling like she is – hope. “Regardless how difficult that journey is, we some how value every moment,” she said. “I try to do a better job of taking care of myself. I try to eat differently, incorporate things like yoga into my life and take a holistic perspective to living a healthier and better life.” For more information or to register for the walk, visit www.lightthenight.ca.

In early October, the Expert Roundtable on Immigration released their final report. They found that immigration is critical to Ontario’s economic success, and that in order for our province to prosper and remain globally competitive, we need more skilled immigrants. Furthermore, we must ensure that effective programs and services are available to help improve settlement and integration for all immigrants. Overall, 32 recommendations were presented addressing issues including immigrant selection, settlement and integration, and foreign qualification recognition. The Roundtable recommended that our selection process be fair, transparent, and facilitate diversity in the mix of immigrant source countries. Employers and municipalities should be engaged in identifying labour market needs and challenges, and we should develop a marketing and promotion strategy to attract immigrants with high levels of human capital to the province. They also suggested that we make a better effort to retain individuals who have experience working and studying in Ontario. The Roundtable recommended that once newcomers arrive in Ontario, we should support them with programs that target immigrants’ networks to enable the effective integration of new immigrants —particularly family, friends, and faith groups. Mentorship, internship, and bridge training programs should be expanded across the province. They also suggest that our government should continue to work with professional regulatory bodies to improve the assessment and recognition of immigrants’ qualifications, including academic credentials, practical training, and experience to ensure that we are maximizing their potential. The Expert Roundtable did an excellent job of identifying key issues and providing recommendations for strengthening our immigration system. We respect their expertise and their thoughts and recommendations will be strongly considered as we develop our strategy. Immigration is critical to the well-being of all Ontarians, and skilled new Ontarians are fundamental to our economic future. That is why the Government of Ontario is calling on the federal government to share responsibility for immigration so that Ontario and Canada can continue to grow stronger together. We are committed to the creation of an immigration strategy that will focus on how immigration can best support the province’s economic development and ensure Ontario’s immigrants succeed.

The small community of modest post-war bungalows has stood unchanged in the shadow of Lees Avenue apartment towers until recently, but redevelopment pressure is mounting. Like many property owners, residents in the small section of Old Ottawa East didn’t realize what the city’s zoning rules allow to be built on their lots. Now, with a three-storey, nineunit triplex rising on Chestnut Street, neighbours are worried. In a block and a half, there are around 20 unimproved homes that are ripe for redevelopment on Chestnut Street, said Rick Burrows, who lives on the street. Under the permitted zoning, those lots could all be redeveloped into triplexes, increasing the small street’s population by 400 per cent. “That’s what’s allowed with no minor variances,” Burrows said. “We are ground zero for this.” Burrows spoke out at a meeting about infill development held at St. Paul University on Oct. 3. He said he’s a fan of the city’s policy of intensification and having more people live with a smaller footprint in the city’s core, but what’s allowed in Archville goes too far. Applause from about 40 other residents in attendance signaled their agreement. “If Chestnut was redeveloped that way, it would be dysfunctional. It wouldn’t work,” said Old Ottawa East resident John Engeland. Problems like a lack of parking compound as intensification occurs beyond what the city was expecting and spot rezonings only make it worse,

he said. Even the area councillor, Capital Coun. David Chernushenko, agreed. “That’s a radical change … beyond what anyone was expecting,” he told the crowd, adding that it’s highly unlikely all Chestnut Street or Archville properties would actually be redeveloped to that intensity. Still, it would be allowed, and that’s what leaves Burrows uncomfortable. He said he would rather see “green intensification” – more people living in the neighbourhood without trading off green space. Encouraging or requiring front yards and back yards and keeping mature trees instead of making way for parking are all key parts in attracting a mix of neighbours that includes a cross section of families and other residents, including university students. Putting in minor zoning restrictions might bring the potential increase in the number of residents down to 300 per cent from the 400 per cent possible now, Burrows said, and that’s acceptable. Residents at the meeting, including representatives from the Old Ottawa East Community Association, echoed Burrows’ wishes. Stephen Pope, a board member of the association, requested that the councillor look into what might be done to take certain allowances out of the zoning, such as forbidding triplexes but not changing the building height limit. That’s something he could look into, Chernushenko said. It could mimic a pilot project that’s taking place in Sandy Hill to help the city have better oversight of homes being converted into multi-unit dwellings, often due to demand for housing for University of Ottawa students.

Aging homes in Old Ottawa East’s Archville neighbourhood are under increasing redevelopment pressure and could be torn down and replaced with three-storey triplexes, to the chagrin of many residents in the community.

Miss Crosby prepares students for the world

M

iss Crosby was fair to a fault, yet she stood for no nonsense. Most of the boys in Senior Fourth at Northcote School were a couple heads taller than she was, but she had no trouble handing out discipline to any of them when the need arose. We all had a healthy fear of Miss Crosby, including Cecil and my brother Emerson, both of whom seemed to attract trouble like ants to a plate of honey. The strap that hung on the side of her desk from a cup hook was a constant reminder that if anyone stepped out of line, she would use it in a split second. When she did, the whack was enough to raise her off her feet. So needless to say, just looking at the black leather demon was enough to keep us on our best behaviour. Back then the teacher was right up there in importance with the family doctor or the member of Parliament and each was treated with the utmost respect. Miss Crosby was lucky to live in the community, not like some rural teachers who had to â&#x20AC;&#x153;room and boardâ&#x20AC;? at one of the local farms. She could walk to school. She also had the patience of a saint. Marguirite was enough to try anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s patience, but Miss Crosby knew

MARY COOK Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories exactly how to handle the girl who was the bane of my existence. Marguirite never did anything bad enough to warrant the strap, but she aggravated the daylights out of me, mostly because she was the only one in her family and had the best of everything. She had a real leather school bag, for instance and a tin box for her lunch, items that were deemed luxuries at the time. About once a year, just about every family in the community would have the teacher overnight on a weekend. That meant of course, that she would attend church with the family on the Sunday and it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter what church they attended, the teacher was expected to go with them. So Miss Crosby could be at a United church one week and at a Lutheran one the next. What a thrill it was to have the teacher over for the night. The house would have a cleaning from top to bottom, just like it got in the spring or fall. Floors upstairs and downstairs were scrubbed,

the kitchen was spotless and bedclothes were all fresh off the line. There would also be plenty of food on the table. Of course, when it was our turn to host the teacher, she couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be expected to walk the five-and-a-half kilometres my brothers and sister and I had to trudge to and from school. No, Father would take the buggy in the summer and the cutter in the winter to fetch her to our old log house. That weekend, I felt so smug. I knew for a fact that Marguirite had asked Miss Crosby at least three or four times during the school year to go to her home for the weekend. But Miss Crosby wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t dream of that. No, everything was fair and square with Miss Crosby. Marguirite would constantly bring a treat to school for the teacher. This time of year it would be an apple. Often Miss Crosby would have an apple every day from the little girl with the drugstore-bought curls and I would watch to see what the teacher

would do with it. I never saw her eat the apple, but it would be taken home with her and I liked to think she maybe threw it away when she got far enough away from the school, but more than likely it was put into a pie or apple crisp. I have no idea what Miss Crosby did with the boxes of hankies, the cheap tin cans of talcum powder and the countless bars of soap she got at Christmas time, but I do remember getting a little note of thanks every year. She would make sure the notes were all written at the same time, on our desks waiting for us. The notes were never mailed. After all, it cost three cents for a postage stamp back then. She never seemed to have a big wardrobe. In the winter, it was a simple black wool dress and in the summer a printed silk. She had a variety of crocheted collars that she

attached to her outfit to bring variety to what she wore and she wore black laced shoes with thick rubber on the heels. My brother Emerson said the heels were like that so that she could creep up on you without being heard. Miss Crosby loved the king and queen and she loved the Bible. Every morning she read a scripture lesson and we all recited the Lordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Prayer in unison. We were supposed to sit ramrod straight in our seats with our heads bowed and our hands forming steeples. Heaven help us if we were caught with our eyes open. Then we had to stand at attention by our seats and Miss Crosby blew on a little tin piece that gave us all the musical note to start on and with our right hand over our hearts, we belted out God Save the King. Even those who couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t carry a note in

a slop-pail were expected to sing. Of course Marguirite sang so loudly Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure she could be heard in Admaston. Miss Crosby was high on manners. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter who came to the door at Northcote School, we were expected to get out of our seats, noiselessly of course and stand at attention until told to sit down. If it was the inspector, Miss Crosby would introduce him and we had to say, again in unison, â&#x20AC;&#x153;good morningâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;good afternoonâ&#x20AC;? and repeat the inspectorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name. When Mother said Miss Crosby was a saint, I believed her. Her salary was only a few hundred dollars a year and Mother said she earned every cent of it. When you left the Northcote School, having graduated from the entrance class, you were ready for whatever road lay ahead. Miss Crosby saw to that.

Secret to making the ultimate peach cake

• 1 white cake mix • 1 can (540 ml) peach pie filling or use the recipe below • 4 eggs, beaten • 1 1/4 tsp. almond extract • 1 tbsp. amaretto liqueur Ignore the directions on the cake mix package. The batter does not need any other liquids. Butter and lightly flour either a Bundt pan or a 23-by33-centimetre cake pan. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the cake mix, pie filling, eggs, flavouring and liqueur if you’re using it. Use a spoon, not an electric mixer, to mix the batter.

Stir until thoroughly combined, about two minutes. If the peaches in the pie filling are in large slices, break them into smaller pieces with the spoon. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan, and bake at 325 F (160 C) for about 35 minutes. Check with a toothpick to make sure the cake is done. If not, bake for another five minutes and test again. When the cake is done, remove it from the oven, and let it cool for five minutes. If you used a Bundt pan, turn the cake out on a rack. If you used a 23-by-33-centimetre pan, leave the cake in the pan. Cool completely before serving. This cake is very moist and doesn’t need icing. If you want to serve it with something else, a dollop of whipped cream is nice. PEACH FILLING

• 398 ml can of peaches, either

slices or halves, in their own juice • water (see directions below for the amount) • 1/4 cup flour If you can’t find canned peach pie filling, here’s how to make a homemade version. Drain the canned peaches, reserving the juice in a measuring cup. Add enough water to make one cup of liquid. Combine the liquid with the flour in a small plastic container with a tight-fitting lid. Cover, hold the lid firmly and shake well. Pour this into a small saucepan. Cook the mixture, over medium heat, for three to five minutes, stirring constantly, until it thickens into a sauce. Cool completely. While the sauce cools, cut the peaches into pieces about the size of a walnut. When the sauce is cool, stir in the peaches. Use this mixture, instead of the canned pie filling, in the cake recipe.

filling. In less than a week, supermarkets and grocery stores from Brockville to Ottawa were completely sold out of peach pie filling. As a result of it being so hard to find, I developed a recipe for a quick, homemade peach pie filling to use in the cake. It’s not as convenient as the canned version, but it has more peaches and less sugar.

Legion to host district gathering Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - The Vanier legion is getting ready to host its district’s three day convention this Oct. 19 to 21. There are nine districts in the Ontario command of the Royal Canadian Legion. The District “G” fall convention consists of 67 legions from Pembroke to Kingston to Cornwall and this year, the Eastview Branch 462 will host the convention at 294 Cyr Ave. The three-day event will welcome more than 150 members from across the eastern district to Vanier to participate in membership duties, vote on

any bylaws or amendments brought up over the past two years and prepare and organize the year’s sporting teams and upcoming events. For Leo Beddard, the local arrangement committee chairman and the immediate past zone commander for district G-5, this convention is an opportunity to show off the branch’s motto. “We are the hospitality branch that cares,” he said. “And we are very proud to host the convention.” Beddard is not new to organizing a convention; this will actually be the fifth convention to take place in Vanier since 2001. He said he knows this year the committee is

working hard to make the convention to go smoothly, but he is ready for anything. “It doesn’t matter what you do, you can try to have no glitches, but always something can go wrong,” he said. Members from all the legions will be staying at the Chimo Hotel Ottawa and will be transported to and from the hotel and the meeting places in Vanier, which include the Pauline-Charron Centre and the legion. The event will also include a march of the colours and speeches from legion presidents, a parade around the Cyr Avenue legion’s block on Oct. 20 and a roast beef dinner on Sunday, Oct. 21.

EMC news - An annual motorcycle fundraiser ride is revving up to become the biggest earner for the Eastern Ottawa Resource Centre after another successful year. The third annual Cruise Don’t Bruise: Bikers Against Violence fundraiser took place on Sept. 15. The event raised more than $15,000 for the centre’s anti-violence programs. “It has grown so much in two years,” said Ken Mackenzie, the centre’s program manager. Last year’s event raised $12,000. The ride has not only gained monetary support, but the number of riders has also grown substantially, increasing from 60 riders the first year, nearly 100 in the second to this year’s grand total of 135 riders. Geraldine Dixon, a volunteer at the centre who also rides a motorcycle, finds the fundraiser important for both the centre and the motorcycling community. “It is a good thing when we come together to make a difference,” Dixon said. “It is about changing one life at a time. The biker community really has gotten behind this event and is happy to help give back.” The route started at the Eastern Ottawa Resource Centre, located at 2339 Ogilvie Rd. and travelled to the centre’s

Although it receives funding from the province and the city, the money raised allows the centre more freedom when it comes to helping clients.

EMC news - Barbara Ann Scott King died on Sept. 30 at the age of 84, but her memory wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fade from the city where she grew up. Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sweetheart was a Sandy Hill native who trained at the Minto Skating Club and twirled on Dowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lake during Ottawa winters, and later achieved unmatched success. She is the only person to ever hold the European, North American, Canadian and World championship titles and the Olympic gold simultaneously. In the first Olympics after the Second World War in 1948, the then-teenager won the gold medal and quickly solidified her name as a Canadian sporting icon. She trained at Minto Skating Club, representing the same club as many Ottawa championship skaters. Don Jackson skated with several of the same coaches as Scott King, and went on to become a world champion and Olympic bronze medalist before coaching and taking the executive director role at Minto. He can recall Scott King accepting invitation after invitation for events, speeches, and teas with Minto skaters. Because of her notoriety, she had to bring along a staff member to help corral the fans

LAURA MUELLER/METROLAND

Barbara Ann Scott King is joined by Mayor Jim Watson and others to officially open the Barbara Ann Scott Gallery at city hall on Aug. 9. who wanted autographs at the peak of her popularity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was just like royalty, really, in figure skating,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was good that she came back because of the history of skating; it gets pretty fuzzy after a while â&#x20AC;Ś It kept her alive in the eyes of the young skaters coming up and gave them somebody to see that won a gold, that they were able to achieve it too.â&#x20AC;? Scott King began skating at six years old, passing her gold figures test at 10 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the youngest in the world. Jackson remembers her stellar basics in her figures test â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which no longer exists â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which required such accuracy that it could be lost with one wrong flick of the blade. And at 19, clean basics and long training hours in Ottawa carried Scott King all the way

to the major titles that catapulted her to legendary status in sports history. She was made an officer of the Order of Canada and a member of the Order of Ontario; she was also inducted into the Canadian Olympic Hall of Fame, the Skate Canada Hall of Fame and the International Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sports Hall of Fame. The Canadian Olympic Committee released a statement following her death, calling it a loss to the sporting community and all of Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ms. Scottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grace and humility put her in a class of her own,â&#x20AC;? the statement said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Her accomplishments will never be forgotten as she has paved the way for generations of figure skaters.â&#x20AC;?
