needed to fight gangs Hundreds attend city’s crime forum Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Ottawa already knows what it needs to do to reduce gang activity in the city – now, it just needs to make it happen. That was the theme of a discussion at city hall last Wednesday evening during a forum called “Taking Action Together: Addressing Gangs in Our City.” The Oct. 17 event was organized by the Ottawa police, Crime Prevention Ottawa, the Youth Services Bureau and Ottawa Community Housing, but most of the discussion and questions from members of the public rehashed issues that have been discussed at similar events in the past. “I think these are themes that we’ve heard through our conversations,” said Ottawa police Chief Charles Bordeleau. He added it is still important to listen to those stories and create a dialog about the issues that people are seeing in their communities. The chief said he was pleased with the number of people who attended and the amount of passion they showed about the issue. A sharp rise in shootings this year reinvigorated the push to end gang violence in Ottawa. There have already been 31 shootings this year as of Oct. 3, more than a 30 per cent increase over last year, said Staff Sgt. Mark Patterson from the police guns and gangs unit There are an estimated 473 people in gangs in Ottawa and between 25 and 30 of them are believed to be involved in shootings. See RESIDENTS, page 19

Three year-old Camille Barbeau gets some help with his new snowsuit from honorary Snowsuit Fund co-chairpersons Chris Phillips, a defenceman for the Ottawa Senators, and his wife Erin. The couple joined the Snowsuit Fund board members and community partners for the 2012 fundraiser launch on Oct. 16.

Keeping kids warm, one suit at a time Depot already handed out hundreds Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - With winter fast approaching, the Snowsuit Fund has already handed out thousands of donated suits and to keep up with the demand, the organization says it needs more hands on deck. “Volunteers are vital to our operation,” said Joanne Andrews, executive director of the fund. The Snowsuit Fund Depot, located at 225 Donald St., officially launched its 2012 campaign on Oct. 16. The launch welcomed cheques from com-

munity corporate partners Tim Hortons and Canadian Tire. Bill Houldsworth, a local Tim Hortons store manager, presented the non-profit organization a cheque for $96,157 – money collected through the company’s Smile Cookie campaign. Every $40 raised, Andrews said buys a snowsuit, meaning the Tim Hortons donation will purchase 2,400 snowsuits. But this is a number that barely covers one week’s worth of demand from clients, Andrew said. “We distribute about 300 to 400 a day, with 5,000 suits distributed so far,” she said.

Last year the organization handed out 15,000 suits, a number Andrews said will grow this year. As the only full-time employee, Andrews said volunteers are the backbone the organization needs to survive. “The depot is full today with people looking for suits,” Andrews said. “It takes a lot of people’s help to make it run smoothly here and you can really see the difference when we have a group of dedicated volunteers. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do.” The Snowsuit Fund opened its doors to families in need in the Ottawa region 31 years ago, providing warm winter clothing, from suits to hats to

mitts and scarves. As part of one family that has benefited from the service for the past 15 years, Melanie Barbeau said without it, her family’s home life would be much harder. “It means a great deal,” Barbeau said. “From extra food, outings, anything, this helps make it easier.” Barbeau’s three-year-old son, Camille, had the chance to pick out a suit at the launch. A hockey fan, he chose an Ottawa Senators snowsuit. This was good news to the honorary co-chairpersons for the fund, Senators defenceman Chris Phillips and his wife, Erin. See SENATORS, page 9

Issues stir at New Edinburgh annual meeting Board welcomes new members Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Old resentments and new concerns were brought up at the New Edinburgh Community Alliance’s annual general meeting at St. Bartholomew’s Church Hall on Oct. 17. The meeting had barely begun when a dispute arose over the minutes from last year’s annual general meeting. Resident Gyde Shepherd objected to having his name a part of the 2011 draft minutes, which had his comments alongside those from a number of residents opposed to the relocation of the Vietnamese Embassy to 55 McKay Ave. Gemma Kerr, a former board member, objected to the proposed change to the minutes, a record of what took place at the Oct. 25, 2011 meeting. The section in question represented a record of

ter Clark attended the meeting to update the residents on neighbourhood and ward concerns. Clark reported some success on things such as inďŹ ll guidelines, heritage guidelines and the interprovincial bridge debate. Association president Joan Mason commended Clark for his efforts when it came to ďŹ ghting to preserve heritage. “I was told Peter (Clark) has a heart and I have certainly

found that to be true, and now he has a swiftly growing interest in heritage too.â€? she said. Clark has been selected to sit on the new subcommittee that will serve as a replacement for the Ottawa built heritage advisory committee, the former advisory committee. “Heritage has its merits and I am looking forward to this new role,â€? he said. Clark encouraged heritagesavvy residents to apply to ďŹ ll

the three non-councillor roles on the committee. The evening also saw three new board members welcomed as another two bid farewell. Longtime board member Ernie Smith and president Joan Mason both announced they were stepping down from the board. Vice-president David Sacks thanked Smith for his dedication. “His presence on the board has been wonderful and inspired,� Sacks said. “He is the most jovial around the board, with a wonderful sense of humour and we will miss him very much.� Mason did not give a goodbye address, but did say after the meeting that she was going to miss the enthusiasm her fellow board members have for community issues. Catherine Lindquist, Tim Plumptre and Paula Thompson were elected to the board. Board committee chairs also presented their annual reports at the meeting. Sarah Anson-Cartwright, board member and environment committee chairwoman, announced the four-year-old environment committee will become a virtual, inactive committee. “We are virtual, not disbanded,� said Anson-Cartwright.

The event is the evolution of the Vanier BeautiďŹ cation committee’s walkabouts, held annually, to help keep a watchful eye on the neighbourhood children. Community liaison ofďŹ cer for the resource centre, Stefan Cherry, thought it would be a great opportunity to expand the event and create a larger community outing. The event is being pegged as a safe zone for children. It will be well lit and offer a place for residents to meet up, either before the trick-ortreating begins or after. Cherry worked with BeautiďŹ cation members as well as members from the Vanier Community Association’s health and safety committee, to organize the event. “This is a really great idea,â€? said Marguerite Beaulieu, co-chairwoman of the committee. The event will have more than just drinks and candy for the children – there will also be mini ashlights available for residents to use while trick-or-treating. BeautiďŹ cation member Lucie Marleau wanted residents to know the walkabout will still take place and residents are encouraged to participate. adding costumes are a must.

Promotion key to cycling success: speaker Citizens for Safe Cycling hear timely message at annaul meeting

SIGN UP &

WIN

Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Getting people on bicycles is about convincing them it’s not just something they do – it’s something that’s impossible for them to resist doing. That was the message delivered by keynote speaker Ralph Buehler during the annual general meeting of local bicycle advocacy group, Citizens for Safe Cycling. More than 100 people gathered at Tom Brown Arena in Hintonburg to hear Buehler’s advice, culled from his research as an assistant professor of urban affairs and planning at Virginia Tech University and as the co-author of an upcoming book called City Cycling. Cycling is on an upward trend in cities all around the world, Buehler said, but a comprehensive approach is needed to keep it that way. Building bicycle lanes alone is not enough, Buehler said. If a city really wants to make strides, it needs to look at things like bike parking, bike-sharing programs, marketing and events, and broader things like driver education and creating zoning rules that favour compact, mixed-use communities. “Public policies are crucial to making cycling more attractive and to make cycling safer,â€? Buehler said. As Ottawa embarks on its ambitious, $2.1-billion light rail project, Buehler made some relevant points about the mutual beneďŹ ts of integrating cycling into transit systems. “Integration with public transit can be beneďŹ cial for both modes,â€? Buehler said. From a transit perspective, providing bike parking at transit stations or even more effectively, allowing bikes aboard

Virginia Tech urban planning expert Ralph Buehler spoke to around half of Citizens for Safe Cycling’s 200 members during the group’s Oct. 16 annual general meeting at Tom Brown Arena. transit vehicles, can increase the catchment area for the transit system. While cities look at a walking distance of about 600 or 800 metres to a major transit hub, encouraging people to cycle to the station can make transit a more attractive option to people who live or work farther away, Buehler said. One public policy that is picking up steam in cyclingfriendly cities around the world is the “green waveâ€?: coordinating trafďŹ c signals along a street so that they will all be green for someone travelling at approximately the speed of a bicycle. At the same time that cities create policies to encourage bicycle use, they also need to look at creating disincentives for driving, Buehler said. In Canada, an average of 1.3 per cent of all trips are made by bicycle. That’s slightly higher than the United States, but much lower than the Netherlands – the world leader – at 26 per cent, and even Germany at 10 per cent. Much of that has to do with

bill aimed at requiring transport trucks to have sideguards installed – barriers between the cab and the trailer wheels that prevent cyclists and pedestrians from being fatally pulled under the back wheels of a right-turning truck. Not only do the guards save lives, Chow said, in the low run they also reduce emissions and save money on fuel costs for trucks because they make the vehicles more aerodynamic. Safety is also on the minds of Citizens for Safe Cycling members. The group is holding its ďŹ rst-ever bike-light giveaway, with more than 200 lights to be given away to help cyclists make themselves more visible as the days get darker. The even is happening on Nov. 1 from 4 to 6 p.m. at an undisclosed location. Check safecycling.ca for the location to be revealed closer to the event.

the traditional use of bicycles that shaped peoples’ attitudes towards cycling. In North America, it largely began as a recreational pursuit, while in western Europe bicycles have always been under the transportation umbrella. On a local level, Ottawa’s 2.2 per cent bicycle share has a long way to go to catch up to Victoria at 9.5 per cent or Vancouver at 3.7 per cent. One way to get there is to encourage women to bike. Women are an “indicator species,� Buehler said. Research shows that women are more risk averse, so if conditions encourage them to cycle, it’s probably a good environment for other categories of cyclists, too. Another speaker, Olivia Chow, MP for Trinity-Spadina in Toronto, brought her message of cycling safety to the meeting as well. Chow is sponsoring a private member’s

Christine Leadman, the executive director of the Glebe BIA said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be at committee, we want to be making an impact before.â&#x20AC;? The meeting of the Ottawa Council of BIAs took place at city hall on Oct. 15. The group requested a commitment from Mayor Jim Watson, who agreed it is necessary for the two groups to work together. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We welcome your input,â&#x20AC;? Watson said in his opening remarks. Elected by the group to serve as the committee chairwoman is Donna Holtom, owner of SantĂŠ Restaurant and Holtz Spa, part of the Downtown Rideau BIA. John Philips, from the Carp Road Corridor Association was elected as vice-chairman.

The meeting was the first opportunity for the council to establish its goals and priorities, such as the desire to have an open dialogue with the city. Each BIA will be represented by an executive and two members of its board, but each BIA will only count for one vote on the committee. The group intends to meet monthly and hold quarterly meetings with the city. It wishes to be included as a group on both citywide initiatives and smaller, local ones as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to be seen as a resource rather than a hindrance,â&#x20AC;? Holtom said. According to board member Mark Kaluski from Quartier Vanier, the council is a result of an election campaign promise made by Watson. Shortly after the election, the BIAs tried to form an association, which went through a number of iterations, but never received the full support of all the associations in the city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have worked on this for two years now,â&#x20AC;? Kaluski said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the spring, the mayor met with the chairs of the

BIAs to lend support to the group to finally get it going.â&#x20AC;? He said the BIAs gave it one more push at a fully attended meeting in May. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From that point on, we were able to get consensus and build the group that was presented to the mayor on Monday,â&#x20AC;? Kaluski said. POLICE PRESENCE

Police chief Charles Bordeleau attended the meeting and said he saw it as an opportunity to extend his reach when it came to hearing issues and concerns from communities. The group took this opportunity to address their separate and joint concerns about safety and crime. Leadman expressed frustration about reporting graffiti and asked Bordeleau for a better way to involve police in the process, in an effort to stop crimes before they happen. Jasna Jennings, Byward Market BIA executive director, echoed Leadmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comments. She said a police presence is needed in the downtown core and that things like protests and demonstrations tend to take away from that presence around area businesses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is an ongoing frustration for us,â&#x20AC;? Jennings said. Over the course of the dis-

Changes to put new street food on cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s menu Committee approves looser food truck rules, adds more spots Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Looser proposed rules governing food trucks in the city would mean that 20 vehicles would be able to begin operating next year, but some councillors are worried the changes will make Ottawa look like a nanny state. The eased licensing laws for food trucks are meant to inspire creative chefs and entrepreneurs to expand the street food offerings in Ottawa. To that end, the process will include a selection panel that would be charged with ensuring the new offerings contribute to making the city more vibrant, but not to dictate menu items. The panel is meant to ensure the best and most creative new vendors get a crack at one of the 20 new spaces (there are also 16 existing vacant spots), said Bay Ward Coun. Mark Taylor, the chairman of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s community and protective services committee. The new rules still have to be endorsed by full city council, but Taylorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s committee voted in support of the changes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with all members expect

for College Ward Coun. Rick Chiarelli in favour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think our job is to determine how many vehicles there should be and where they should be and leave it up to the vendors to decide what to serve,â&#x20AC;? Chiarelli said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not our job to engineer menus.â&#x20AC;? Councillors Jan Harder (Barrhaven) and Eli El-Chantiry (West Carleton-March) also expressed concerns about the risk of dictating the type of food to be served, but they voted in support of the rules in the end. But Philip Powell, the city staffer who worked on the new rules, said they were specifically designed to â&#x20AC;&#x153;look bigâ&#x20AC;? and be flexible instead of being prescriptive. He said the looser regulations are an opportunity for â&#x20AC;&#x153;cultural celebrationâ&#x20AC;? in the city. Taylor said he hopes ethnic cuisines and hip, urban foods take over from hot dogs and poutine. Aside from a Thai-themed truck near city hall and Stone Soupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s truck at the University of Ottawa, there is very little variety in Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s street food. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not because the city tells vendors what to sell, but rather because the restrict-

LAURA MUELLER/METROLAND

The city has drafted new food truck rules in hopes of seeing more unique street food vendors like Dung Liâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Thai soup truck that has parked at Elgin and Lisgar streets in Centretown for the past five months. ed size of the trucks allowed limits food storage and cooking options, Taylor said. Easing the restriction even slightly from one metre wide to 1.2 metres wide will make a positive difference, said street-food vendor Terry Scanlon. He has operated his truck for 30 years, but says he welcomes the new rules that will

bring more vendors like him to the streets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know from experience, you have to have the space to produce the product,â&#x20AC;? Scanlon said. Scanlon also supports a regulated distance of 46 metres between a food truck and a restaurant. The distance can breed tension between street vendors and traditional res-

taurants because lower overhead costs mean the trucks can undercut the prices restaurants charge. Maintaining the right distance reduces tension, Scanlon said. Powell looked to international street-food leaders like Portland, Ore., to compare rules. In Portland, the vast majority of food trucks are

set up on private property and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ideally where Powell would like to see Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s street-food scene evolve. The process will be slightly easier for vendors on private property â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be vetted by the expert panel. City council was set to vote on the new rules on Wednesday Oct. 24, after this newspaperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deadline.

Naqvi mulling provincial Liberal leadership run Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - In a surprise move after nine years as premier of Ontario, Ottawa South MPP Dalton McGuinty announced on Oct. 15 that he is stepping down as premier. The 57-year-old was the first provincial premier to call Ottawa home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was historic for our community to have a premier,â&#x20AC;? said Ottawa West-Nepean MPP Bob Chiarelli, a close colleague of McGuintyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. McGuinty asked party president Yasir Naqvi, MPP for Ottawa Centre, to convene a leadership convention at the earliest opportunity. McGuinty said he will remain leader and premier until a new Liberal leader is named and he will remain as the MPP for Ottawa South until the next election â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a role he has filled for 22 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As the party and government of relentless progress, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always looking for new ideas and ways to renew ourselves,â&#x20AC;? McGuintyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s speech read. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve concluded that this is the right time for Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next Liberal premier and our next set of ideas to guide our province forward.â&#x20AC;? The evening announcement came amid opposition accusations that McGuinty misled the legislature over power plant cancellations that

will cost taxpayers upwards of $230 million and pressure from teachersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; unions over his efforts to freeze their wages and take away their right to strike. But McGuinty cited party â&#x20AC;&#x153;renewalâ&#x20AC;? and the oppositionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blocking of a publicsector wage freeze bill as his reasons for stepping aside. Having a local MPP leading the provincial government for nine years has â&#x20AC;&#x153;paid off big timeâ&#x20AC;? for Ottawa, Chiarelli said. When McGuinty became the provincial Liberal partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leader 16 years ago, the Ontario Liberals had won just one election in 50 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were in the wilderness and he brought us back. He brought us back in style and I think with tremendous credibility,â&#x20AC;? Chiarelli said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He delivered big time to this community.â&#x20AC;? Chiarelli said there was a general sense that this term would be a â&#x20AC;&#x153;transitional timeâ&#x20AC;? for McGuinty, but the news he was stepping down was a surprise and came sooner than expected. John Fraser, who works for McGuinty and also serves as president of the Ottawa South Provincial Liberal Association, said even he was surprised at the resignation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very disciplined and focused about what he does â&#x20AC;Ś so it was done in a very

Fraser said. McGuintyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legacy will be leadership, Fraser said, but locally he has played a big role in helping the community grow, from helping redo Better Beginnings to assisting with getting new soccer fields at Hillcrest Park. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nine years of this,â&#x20AC;? Fraser said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been great for Ottawa.â&#x20AC;?

Over 24,100 participants made the 2012 Cleaning the Capital fall cleanup a very successful campaign! Between September 15 and October 15, community volunteers joined in to keep Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parks, roadways and green spaces, clean, green, graffiti and litter-free. Thank you to participating schools, neighbourhood associations, community organizations, businesses, families, friends and individuals who participated in the challenge. We hope to see you all again for our annual Spring Cleaning the Capital campaign in April 2013. Thank you to our many sponsors who made our campaign such a great success.

Naqvi is purported to be considering a bid for leadership, but he said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too soon for him to make that decision. Still, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something Naqvi said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll mull over with his wife. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m heartened to hear support and requests,â&#x20AC;? Naqvi said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d never say never, but first and foremost my responsibility is to my family and

my constituents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is an opportunity,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a task at hand â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to kick start the process around the convention.â&#x20AC;? As a high-profile minister of transportation and infrastructure and a former Ottawa mayor, Chiarelli didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rule out a run at the leaderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always said throughout my whole political career, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You never say never,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Chiarelli said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Today is a time to bear down and continue to deliver good government and to show some respect for the legacy of Premier Dalton McGuinty, which is very significant â&#x20AC;Ś I will turn my mind to my political future in the foreseeable future.â&#x20AC;? Other Ottawa-area politicians with Liberal affiliations werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t available for comment at press time. Ottawa-OrlĂŠans MPP Phil McNeely said he had a few tears in his eyes during the announcement. It was 2002 when McGuinty came to city hall, where McNeely was a councillor, to ask him to run provincially. McNeely said Ottawa has been treated fairly under McGuintyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leadership. As far as a new leader goes, McNeely said he has no favourites yet but he likes many of the potential candidates that have been named in the media. Herongate resident Perry

Marleau wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t convinced that McGuintyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time as leader was very beneficial for the area. Marleau, a self-indentified Conservative and former municipal council candidate in 2006 and 2010, says â&#x20AC;&#x153;simple favouritismâ&#x20AC;? has helped propel McGuinty at the provincial level, but without that local support, he would have a difficult time making a federal Liberal leadership bid, as some pundits have suggested. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dalton is really well liked in Ottawa South,â&#x20AC;? Marleau said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a homegrown boy â&#x20AC;Ś no one ever says anything bad about him.â&#x20AC;? John Redins, another Ottawa South resident who ran against McGuinty for the Party for People with Special Needs in the last election, said he was shocked at the resignation but figures political life wore the premier out. McGuinty may well back down from representing Ottawa South in the next election, but Redins said he wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be surprised to see a third generation of McGuintys vie for the seat. The premierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father, Dalton McGuinty Sr., represented the riding before his son. No one has expressed interest in the future Ottawa South position yet, Fraser said, but he added that the McGuinty family has a long history of politics in the area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the blood,â&#x20AC;? he said.

City should consider a pay-as-you-go future

C

ity councillors are in an unenviable position as they begin to tackle the next budget. The costs of Lansdowneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rebuilding lie ahead while taxpayers remember the sinkhole on highway 174. What to do, what to do? It would be nice to build new things â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an opera house, a new main library or affordable housing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but each project comes with two costs: the up-front bill for construction

and the long-term cost of maintenance. No one wants to end up at the bottom of a sinkhole. We need only look down the (provincially-maintained) highway to Montreal to see how bad things can get. Lumps of cement falling off bridges, rust eating away at metal spans and commuters who must keep an eye out for other cars, pedestrians and the occasional falling bridge. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not there yet and we

donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to arrive there any time soon. As many an expert has told city council, if you delay scheduled maintenance of your infrastructure, you end up paying more in the long run. One example is Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public housing, which provides a double-whammy. The existing homes need upkeep and we need more houses for low-income families. A new Lansdowne Park will be welcome and the deal is done, but other capital

expenditures should be carefully reviewed before going ahead. Better to spend any money we have on maintaining what we already own than to head out and buy more stuff: bridges, highways and roads. During austere economic times, few taxpayers would oppose frugal city spending. Many would applaud it. Any true fiscal conservative in this city should be willing to forego the possibility of new-fangled build-

ings and roads and should also get behind the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s policy of intensification over suburban sprawl. New neighbourhoods on the edge of town cost us all mightily when it comes time to run pipes, wires and buses to the new residents that move in. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s whole financial system deserves a rethink. Maybe now is the time for the city to toss away the credit cards and live within its means. Instead of borrow-

ing to build new stuff, put the brakes on spending until we can operate on a pay-asyou-go basis. It would mean years of limited new stuff but the payoff comes after the hard work, when new projects can go ahead without need for borrowing and debt. In the meantime, city councillors should focus on the most pressing business: maintaining what we already own. The sky is not falling, but the road might.

A history museum? Why not? CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

O

f course everyone is suspicious these days that when it was announced that the Museum of Civilization was going to become the Canadian Museum of History, people assumed the worst. Or at least some people. The Museum of Canadian History was going to become an instrument of Conservative partisanship. Hall 1: How Sir John A. Macdonald invented Canada. Hall 2: The War of 1812. Hall 3: How the Liberals destroyed Canada. Hall 4: The Royal Family. Hall 5: How Stephen Harper saved Canada. Then you exit through the gift shop, where on sale are fridge magnets with the Free Trade Agreement printed on them, maps of Canada where Alberta is unusually large and several of the smaller provinces are missing, Stephen Harperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book about hockey and autographed copies of the Marketing Freedom for Grain Farmers Act. Such are the times we live in. Nothing a politician does is above suspicion. But when you step back and look at it objectively, a Museum of Canadian History is not that bad a thing. There is no such thing now and every serious capital needs one. The late lamented Portrait Gallery was a step in that direction, a chance for us to have a look at important Canadians past and present, but it perished for a variety of reasons, some of them political. It is often said that Canada has a rich and colourful history. And it is said equally often that most Canadians donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know that Canada has a rich and colourful history. That, obviously,

has a lot to do with what is and isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t taught in schools. But it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help that there is no single place Canadians can go and see their history portrayed in a vivid way. Properly done, the History Museum could accomplish a lot. Think of the Canadian War Museum and how compellingly the war years are portrayed there. There is much of our history that is not about war, but no reason that it canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be portrayed compellingly, too. Think beyond war to the events and people who made this country, many of them uncelebrated, except perhaps in small museums in their birthplaces â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the explorers, politicians, rebels, artists, scientists and entrepreneurs. If you are in Batoche, Sask., you can see a great Louis Riel exhibition. If you are in Grand PrĂŠ, N.S., you can learn about the expulsion of the Acadians. If you are in Neepawa, Man., you can visit Margaret Laurenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house and learn about her life. We need to see all that here too, in a national museum. Not everyone can get to Neepawa or Batoche or Grand PrĂŠ. There would be a lot to put into this museum and locating it in Ottawa is a positive step. Ottawa is where the history museum belongs because the capital is the logical place for people to come and view their history. Anyone who has visited Washington knows how impressively American history is assembled and presented. No reason we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do that here. In a perfect world, a brand new museum would be constructed, a grand edifice somewhere along Confederation Boulevard (remember Confederation Boulevard?), but the times are less than perfect and governments are done with putting up grand edifices. So we lose the Museum of Civilization. That museum, as it turns out, is Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most popular, but it has always lacked a clear identity. This change will give it one. Combined with the National Gallery, the War Museum and the Museum of Nature, the new museum will present visitors with a well-rounded picture of the kind of country Canada is and has been. That would be great to show visitors to Canada and even greater to show Canadians.

Boredom, revisited: maybe it’s a killer, too

E

very evening, my younger son returns home from school on the verge of

rage. After a few minutes of quiet time and some protein to balance his blood sugar, I sit him down at the table to do an hour of homework. One hour! He’s in grade one. The exercises include reading monosyllables over and over again, a rapid phonics method I’ve seen work well to teach kids how to read. But, to quote my sixyear-old, “it’s so boring.” And then there’s the math – reading numbers from one to 40, then one to 60, then one to 100 on a grid. “It’s so boring.” Presumably these are the same exercises my active son has to endure day-in, day-out in the classroom. Midway through the second month of the term, he stood up in

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse protest against this assault on his senses. “I’m not going to school anymore. It’s too boring. I don’t want to read le, la, me, il. I want to read real books. I don’t want to sit and listen to everyone in the class read this over and over again. I’m staying home and you can’t make me go to school EVER again.” Yikes! Really, I couldn’t blame him. It got me thinking about the way in which our kids are forced to spend their days -- being chronically bored. A few weeks ago in this space, I wrote about the value of boredom – the idea that

allowing kids unstructured time forces them to tap into their creativity and discover interesting activities. But in a new film, entitled Boredom, Montreal filmmaker Albert Nurenberg argues that too much boredom – especially enforced boredom – will kill you. He asserts that long periods of boredom equate to a form of chronic stress on our bodies. “The moment you become bored, there is an increase in the stress hormone cortisol,” Nerenberg told TheMonitor. ca. Anyone who knows anything about cortisol will

understand it’s linked to increased cholesterol, raised blood pressure, obesity and heart disease. The experts interviewed in Nurenberg’s film go further, connecting prolonged periods of boredom to risk-taking behaviour, (think of teenagers left too long to their own resources), restlessness, drug and alcohol abuse, extreme depression and even suicide. Nurenberg apologetically takes on the public education system as an institution that fuels an atmosphere of chronic boredom, forcing inherently active children to sit still and do rote learning for more than six hours each day. “You take a child who’s full of energy and full of curiosity and you make him sit at the same desk hour after hour after hour controlled by the clock and by the bell,” quips one interviewee in the film. Others cite the fearful

outcome of this – violent, depressed, drug-addicted teens and adults. It’s enough to scare any parent. What to do? I’m reluctant to take on a public education system that I see working for most, including my eldest child. But I do see a reason to tackle my youngest son’s boredom in the area I have the most control – homework. Instead of sitting down for an hour to repeat numbers and letters over and over again, we’re taking monosyllables and mathematics outside. Shoot a basket, read a syllable. Run around the yard, read a syllable. Slide down the slide, read a syllable. Play hide n’ seek, count to 100 (over and over and over again). It may take twice as much time, but at least my son and I will keep our cortisol levels in check and perhaps it will prolong our lives as well.

Bikeway plans leave some residents puzzled Proposed route, traffic changes questioned Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news – The small things that make a big difference for cyclists are on their way to the streets of Ottawa. People gathered at Patro D’Ottawa in Lowertown on Oct. 18 to see how the city plans to spend $5 million to connect existing bicycling lanes to create an east-west “bikeway.” The changes aren’t huge, but there is a big improvement to be made by adding things like sharrows – chevron pavement markings indicating that bicycles and cars should share the lane – and green-painted bike boxes to give cyclists an advance start at intersections, said the project manager, Zlatko Krustlic. Eventually, the bikeway will connect Vanier to Westboro through the downtown core, but the portion presented on Oct. 18 covered the section from the St. Patrick Bridge to the Laurier Bridge. That includes existing bicycle lanes on Stewart and Wilbrod streets, which will remain, but will be

resurfaced for improved water drainage. In most places, the bike-lane markings will provide a half-metre painted “buffer.” There is also a proposal to remove two stop signs on Wilbrod: at Nelson Street and at Augusta Street. John Verbaas, a cyclist and the transportation committee chairman for Action Sandy Hill, advised that the city should consider adding speed humps at those intersections to keep traffic speeds down. Sandy Hill resident and cyclist Tom Barber said he can’t understand why the bikeway isn’t proposed to follow a more obvious, direct route over the Mackenzie-King Bridge to Albert and Slater streets, which currently form the downtown spine of the bus Transitway. Another city study called Downtown Moves is looking at possibilities for more active transportation modes on those streets when most buses are removed when the city gets its underground light-rail line completed in 2018. The plan would also require the removal of seven off-peak parking spaces on Laurier Avenue at the University of Ottawa, between the Transitway and Cumberland, and another 15 parking spaces on Cumberland south of Laurier. The university and the church at

Residents examine plans for an east-west bikeway connecting Vanier and Westboro during an Oct. 18 meeting at Patro D’Ottawa in Lowertown. Laurier and Cumberland, St. Joseph’s Parish, are OK with that plan, said Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury. It also means Laurier would be reduced to one lane westbound in that section, where there are currently two lanes. A bike box would be added to facilitate eastbound cyclists turning left from Laurier to Cumberland to go north towards the ByWard Market (and the bike lane on Wilbrod). Verbaas said the Cumberland turn is the second-best option. Cyclists often already use the pedestrian crosswalk

west of Cumberland to get to a private road/pathway through the University of Ottawa campus in front of Tabaret Hall, therefore avoiding the Cumberland intersection entirely. Removing parking and reducing the westbound lanes for vehicle traffic will also be unpopular and could cause congestion in that busy area, Verbaas said. It’s also more expensive for the city to implement, he added. “That Tabaret Hall area is totally private property for the university,” Krustlic said. “We have to rely on a solution

where all the parties involved are supportive of it.” University spokeswoman Karine Proulx said the issue is still being discussed. “No decision has been made yet on this matter as the discussions are at an early stage,” Proulx said, adding the university has always been supportive of sustainable transportation. The St. Patrick Bridge is often considered to be a dangerous and intimidating place to cyclce, but there are improvements coming. The city presented two

options for the eastbound section: keeping the “floating” bike lane between traffic lanes or pushing the bike lane against the right curb and having cyclists cross the right turning lane back into main traffic flow. Details are still being worked out and the decision will depend on feedback from the public consultation. Krustlic said the final design will be released when a decision is made, but the lane changes might have to wait for a couple years. There are long-term plans to resurface the bridge within a few years and it might make more sense to make changes to the bike lanes at that time. The rest of the changes presented on Oct. 18 are expected to be done in 2013. Most of the remaining sections, especially in the west end, will be completed in 2014. Plans will be available later this year. For the first time in Ottawa, the city is proposing a pilot project to use green boulevards to separate bike lanes and collect and treat rainwater at the same time. The idea is proposed for two blocks of Stewart Street between King Edward Avenue and Friel Street. The “bioretention” boulevards look just like regular grass boulevards, said city engineer Darlene Conway, but they have dips in the curb to allow rainwater that collects on the road to flow into the grassed section.

Residents have their say about ByWard Market future Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - When it comes to living and shopping in the ByWard Market, residents want to see a more pedestrianfriendly approach. The Lowertown Community Association held a consultation on the ByWard Market on Oct. 15 asking residents to answer two questions: what

are the strengths and weaknesses of the market and what are the main things residents would like to see happen in the market. The evening saw nearly 60 eager residents in attendance, including Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury, who sat at round tables and worked as teams to tackle the two questions. Marc Aubin, president of the Lowertown Community

Association, told the group the exercise was an important step in the area’s evolution. “The area is changing, we see the changes, and so it is a good time to rethink the vision of the market,” he said. The last such exercise for the area was done more than 10 years ago. Since then, residents have become concerned that there is less food retail, the farmers’ market portion of

the area is shrinking, all while more bars and restaurants pop up. “We need to learn what the best practices are out there,” Fleury said. “This critical evaluation is very relevant for the future of the market.” At the beginning of the evening, the association released some data from a survey circulated by the association in the summer. More than 160 residents filled out the survey, which showed respondents were looking for more food

The evening was the community’s chance to participate in the ByWard Market “visioning exercise” which began in the spring after the city planning committee and the ByWard Market Business Improvement Area agreed to look at what the market should become and how it should get there. A steering committee was formed, which included members of the community, city staff and the BIA. The city has hired a consulting firm from New York, Project for Public Spaces, to work on the exercise, which will look at the needs and desires for the market. The firm, according to the association’s planning committee chairwoman Sylvia Grenier, held a stakeholders meeting at the end of September and one this past week, where Grenier passed along a report documenting the community consultation results. Fleury said he is looking forward to the Project for Public Spaces report, and implementing any ideas or recommendations.

retail, cited vehicle traffic as a growing concern, indicated new buildings in the area are too tall and that the amount of homelessness and panhandling is on the rise. Interestingly, the association said, safety was listed as little to no concern for residents. The main desire was to have a pedestrian-friendly market. “People should be a priority,” said Vera Etches, an association board member. Each table presented what they felt were the weaknesses of the market, echoing the results of the survey. After the data and weaknesses were presented, the attendees went back to the drawing board to come up with new, creative ways to make the market a better place. Among the suggestions was the idea of making pedestrianonly areas or turning vehicle traffic away completely on Saturdays and Sundays. The conservation of heritage was also noted as a concern. Some said more emphasis on existing heritage needed to be put in place.

EMC news - City council may ask residents if they are OK with a four-bag limit on garbage day. Garage collection will switch permanently to a biweekly schedule on Oct. 29, meaning trash will be collected every two weeks year round, while organics and recycling bins will be picked up weekly. The move is an effort to bring Ottawa closer to its landfill diversion goal, but it won’t be easy to reduce garbage if the city continues to allow six bags of garbage to be put out every two weeks, Alta Vista Coun. Peter Hume told the environment committee on Oct. 16. Right now, households are allowed to put out three bags each week, and that number was simply doubled with the collection changes. That’s a high number of bags that no other municipality that offers organics recycling allows, Hume said.

Switching to biweekly pickup is expected to divert an additional 10,000 to 20,000 tonnes of organic waste from the landfill, said Dixon Weir, the city’s general manager of environmental services. That will boost the diversion rate from the current 44 per cent to around 54 per cent. But that still leaves Ottawa 15,000 tonnes short of its 60 per cent diversion target, said Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess. “It’s going to undermine our drive to make maximum use of the investment we’ve made in our green bin,” he said. “We’re afraid to take the big step and say we need to do this because it’s the right thing to do.” The city is currently only focusing on residential waste collection and has yet to roll out the green-bin program to apartment buildings before ICI collection is even considered. Weir said city staff expect to hit the goal of a 60 per cent diversion rate by the end of this new waste contract, which will be in 2016.

Ottawa teams pedal in place to battle diabetes Fundraiser aims to raise thousands for juvenile diabetes research Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Wheels were spinning at city hall, where cycling teams from across Ottawa banded together to help raise money for juvenile diabetes. The Ride for Diabetes Research held its 10th annual ride at city hall on Oct. 19. Riders, including Brian Sehl, manager of the downtown branch of the National Bank joined 110 teams in Ottawa and more than 24,000 participants across the country over the past few months and help raise money and awareness for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and awareness for juvenile diabetes. “It is a condition that affects so many children,” Sehl said. “It is a great feeling to be a part of this ride.” Sehl’s bank, located at 50 O’Connor Ave., is one of 10 National Banks participating in the ride. The ride gets teams of five to compete in a 40-minute stationary ride, or seven minutes per rider. The ride takes place in 21 cities from September to November.

Teams are awarded incentive prizes for raising the most funds, showing the most spirit, and wearing the best costumes. Sehl, who has participated in the event for the past five years, said the ride can become very exciting. “It can be competitive, it is hard not to, but the best part is watching everyone participate. It is a fantastic experience.” Over the years, Ottawa teams have gone from raising $5,000 to $200,000. National Bank employees raised $25,000 in 2011 and have raised a total of $100,000 over the past five years. The National Bank has supported the foundation’s cycling fundraiser since 2004. Last year, more than 1,275 employees of the National Bank participated in rides across the country. The National Bank’s goal this year is to have 200 teams across Canada participate in the ride and attempt to raise more than $280,000 in donations. If successful, the bank will have donated $2.5 million to the foundation over eight years. This year, the research foundation’s cross-country

And I am pretty sure Marguirite’s mother would have her in them by now.” “I don’t think so,” Velma said. With slitted eyes we watched Marguirite at the swinging gate. It was then Velma had a most brilliant idea. It would involve Cecil of course. Everything that had a bit of a risk to it, always involved Cecil. Velma told me to follow her. I was used to that order and walked with Velma over to the gate. The gate had to be kept hooked, because it was on a slant and slammed shut otherwise. Velma called Cecil aside. That in itself was unusual. Cecil had very little to do with we younger girls at the Northcote School. But I saw Velma take something out of her lunch bag and hand it over to Cecil and I saw him nodding and looking over at Marguirite. “Who wants to swing on the gate?” Cecil hollered. We all loved to swing on the gate, and Marguirite was no exception. The young girls from Junior Third all yelled at once, but since the gate would only hold one at a time, Cecil pointed to Marguirite and

to the ground and she went spread eagle, head over tea kettle. I have no idea how he did it, but Cecil was able to have her land with her new plaid coat and everything under it around her shoulders. There for the entire Northcote School to see was her storebought underwear from Walker Store, as white as the driven snow. No navy blue fleece lined bloomers for Marguirite.

said she could go first. Velma beckoned me over and we stood close to the action. Cecil said you could get a better swing if you put yourself higher on the gate and bent over. He made Marguirite

climb up near the top and then pushed her over so that her head was hanging down on the other side of the gate. I was surprised she went for it. Marguirite never took orders from anyone. Cecil stood on the side of the gate where her head was, and he ran the gate closed and then gave it a mighty heave and running, swung it wide open. Marguirite squealed with glee and Cecil gave her another ride for good measure. Then when the ride was over he accidentally pushed her off

M

y little friend Velma and I met at the back fence behind the Northcote School. Her feelings about Marguirite were just about the same as mine. How much do you want to bet she is still in her white store-bought underwear that her mother buys in Walkers Store? Our eyes travelled over towards the gate where Marguirite was trying to work herself into a group of Senior Fourth girls who obviously wanted no part of her either. The less any of us had to do with the girl, the better we liked it. It wasn’t that she was so bad, even though we all called her “bad Marguirite.” It was just that she was so privileged. Being an only child gave her a decided advantage and also gave her a sense of self importance that none of us could tolerate. I was very aware of the heavy navy blue fleece lined bloomers I had been forced into a week ago. The weather now had a nip in the air and even a few snowflakes had fallen. There was no doubt fall was upon us and winter wasn’t far behind. It was a long walk to the Northcote School and we never knew when the weather was going to change and catch us without warm clothes. So Mother had long since ordered my sister Audrey into heavier white warm underpants and me into the navy blue fleece lined bloomers we got from the Eaton’s catalogue. I hated them with a passion. “Bet a dollar she doesn’t even own a pair of those bloomers,” Velma said. We looked over at Marguirite. There she was, bouncing around like a rubber ball in a

and we all lined up to go into school as Miss Crosby stood on the step ringing the big brass bell. I asked Velma how she was able to get Cecil into the act. She said it cost her two molasses cookies. That night at home, without giving Mother the details (I knew she would never approve of such shenanigans), I told her that Marguirite didn’t have to wear navy blue fleece lined bloomers and I could see no reason why I had to. Mother said she didn’t care if even Princess Margaret Rose didn’t wear them or didn’t even own a pair, I would be wearing the navy blue fleece lined bloomers and there would be no further discussion.

Latest interprovincial bridge report released Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - More than 50 per cent of the residents who attended the National Capital Commission-led pub-

lic consultations on where a new east-end interprovincial bridge should go named poor planning and lack of justification for a bridge as their main concerns. It has been more than a year

since the National Capital Commission awarded RocheGenivar the environmental assessment contract to determine which east-end corridor, Kettle Island, Lower Duck Island or McLaurin Bay, would

Proposed corridors The technically preferred alignment for each corridor was announced on May 24. • The Kettle Island/Corridor 5 proposed route would cross from Gatineau at the Rockliffe Parkway and then run along Aviation Parkway to Highway 174. Montreal Road would have an off/on ramp.

sioned a report from planning expert Dr. Robert Freilich to critique the Interprovincial Crossings Study. “There is no public necessity or public purpose in simply building another bridge to run through Ottawa and Gatineau neighbourhoods and business centers, while doing nothing to address wider regional sustainability needs,” Freilich wrote. Lori Assheton-Smith, who is on the Rockcliffe Park Residents Association bridge committee, said she was pleased their message seemed to be heard. “I do think our message at the rally was heard by those in attendance, as well as by local politicians,” she said. “Going through the comments online, it was clear that the commu-

• The Lower Duck Island/Corridor 6 proposed route would circle around the island to the south shore and run east into the greenbelt and then connect with Highway 174. • McLaurin Bay/Corridor 7 route would also run south through the greenbelt, connecting to the highway further to the east from the proposed Corridor 6 route. nity debate had shifted from “where should we put the bridge?” to “has the need for a bridge been justified?” Following the third round of public consultation, set to begin this fall, the corridor results will be announced. This round of consultations will look at developing a preliminary design and completing the environmental assessment. A fourth round will take place, only following a decision to further explore the topranked corridor. The NCC has only committed to a study to determine where a bridge should go. No funding or commitment has been made to build a bridge. Residents can access all the information about the interprovincial bridge at www. ncrcrossings.ca. R0011693082

have the least impact on area residents. The latest report on the consultation process concerning an east-end interprovincial bridge was released on Oct. 12. The report looks at the second round of public consultations which, for Ottawa, took place on June 12 at the Shenkman Arts Centre. The report indicated 1,033 people attended the consultation, with 420 comment sheets filled out at the meeting. Of the areas residents commented on, 118 comments, or 62 per cent, questioned the planning process and the justification for the project. At the June 12 meeting, community association banded together to spread the message of no bridge in any of the three corridors proposed. “There are fundamental flaws in the weighting process which chose these three corridors in the first place,” said Christophe Credico, head of the Manor Park Community Association bridge committee during the rally. “It has pitted communities against each other and does not even consider east-to-west city traffic.” In the report, a total of 237 comments, or 42 per cent of the comments looking at alignments, supported the “no bridge” campaign. Five of the community associations that started the “no bridge” message also commis-

any of you have followed my cooking column, Food and Stuff, since it first appeared in the Smiths Falls EMC in 1978. Now, it reaches 500,000 households covering the area from Ottawa to Prescott, from Norwood to Trenton, and almost every community in between. It’s come a long way in those 34 years. I love cooking and I love experimenting to find out how a new dish will taste. I wish I could explain how much I’ve enjoyed creating hundreds of new recipes and sharing them with you. My reward has come every time that someone comes up to me and tells me how much they enjoy my column. When they tell me that they make a lot of my recipes, I’m delighted because that has always been my goal – to give you recipes that you will make and enjoy in your own kitchen. No matter who I talk to, I hear the same comment about my recipes again and again. They are easy to prepare with ingredients that you have on hand. This year, my life suddenly took an unexpected turn when I was diagnosed with lung cancer. Needless to say, this came as a complete shock,

• about 1 tsp. unsweetened cocoa powder to dust the baking pan • 1/2 cup butter • 1 cup white sugar • 2 eggs, well beaten with a fork • 1/2 cup flour • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (not hot chocolate mix) • 1 tsp. vanilla • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Butter the bottom and sides of a 20-centimetre square cake pan. Sprinkle one tsp. of cocoa powder over the buttered surfaces. Tap the pan to spread the powder evenly and discard any excess. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Add the remaining ingredients and stir well. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake at 350 F (175 C) for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of the pan comes out clean. Cool the pan on a wire rack. These are good with or without icing.

Expanded cancer centre aims to boost complementary care Ottawa Integrative Cancer Centre aims to grow even more in next five years Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news – A new ally in the world of cancer care has opened its newly expanded doors in Ottawa, giving patients the opportunity to access new therapies to complement conventional cancer treatments. The Ottawa Integrative Cancer Centre opened last year in the unassuming brick building on the northeast corner of Bayswater Avenue and Somerset Street. Now, it has expanded to nearly triple the size. On Monday, Oct. 15, Ottawa medical representatives and special guests helped cut the ribbon to officially open the centre, a non-profit extension of the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine. “This is the culmination of an incredible effort by many, many people,” said Dr. Dugald Seely, founder and executive director of the centre. “The OICC provides a comforting environment where all aspects of a person are treated,” he said. “Choice is respected, but our therapies are not alternative and we do not provide a substitute for conventional care – we respect

the technology and strength of Western medicine.” The therapies offered by the centre, for example, could be used to reduce the effects of chemotherapy or to help a patient regain their strength and maintain their health following a bout with cancer. Therapies ranging from physiotherapy to nutritional counseling are available. Seely said the goal of the next five years is to make the facility even larger – to four or five times its current size. There are currently several facilities of this type in the Toronto area, but this is the first one to open in Ottawa. Bob Bernhardt, president and chief executive of the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, congratulated Seely for achieving his goal, saying he had “marvelously realized that dream.” “(The college) sees its mission as being threefold: education, research and community service,” said Bernhardt. “It’s really the research and community service that’s the strongest focus for the OICC in Ottawa.” Bernhardt again stressed that while the doctors at the centre believe that tailoring treatment for an individual is

Ottawa-Centre MP Paul Dewar, silver medal Olympian Rachelle Viinberg and Colin Carrie, parliamentary secretary to the Minister of Health, help cut the ribbon at the grand opening of the Ottawa Integrative Cancer Centre on Oct. 15. beneficial, they do not believe that “integrative care is a silver bullet that cures cancers,” rather, it is seen as a way of improving the lives of those being treated for cancer. A strong supporter and inspiration for Seely was Dr. Shailendra Verma, medical oncologist at the Ottawa Hospital. Verma called the opening an event that has been greatly

anticipated, not just by the naturopathic community, but by patients, researchers and medical practitioners alike. He recalled meeting Seely 10 years ago and discussing how naturopathic practices could fit into the general health community. “I said this is an area that has created so much tension for centuries, and it’s time we

closed this gap,” he said. “It really is important to understand how best to take care of humans. What we needed was an approach that was really big on communication, big on evidence, big on methodologies.” Seely took that advice and went on to garner the necessary medical knowledge and credentials with which to

create the Ottawa Integrative Cancer Centre. Also on hand to cut the ribbon was 2012 Olympic silver medalist in women’s eight rowing, Rachelle Viinberg, who has had several close family members die of cancer. She recalled trying to compete while her mother was battling colon cancer – individual battles that resulted in wins for both mother and daughter. Viinberg credits the complementary care her mother received for helping her reach the positive outcome and for the fact that her mother suffered no unpleasant symptoms, even during her chemotherapy. Both Ottawa-Centre MP Paul Dewar and Oshawa MP Colin Carrie, parliamentary secretary to the federal minister of health, voiced their congratulations to the founder for this addition to cancer care in Ottawa. “In our system of health care, we need innovators, and this is innovative – building on what we’ve done before,” said Dewar. “We need to keep going down the path of innovation and supporting patient care. And yes, reducing costs – it’s not just about the money, and we do need the money – but how it’s spent, how we innovate and how we coordinate.”

Important changes are coming on October 29 1. Bi-weekly garbage collection. Household residual garbage will be collected every two weeks.

Beautification committee honoured for hard work Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Vanier Beautification will receive the Volunteer of the Year Award from Crime Prevention Ottawa, the group announced at it’s fifth anniversary celebrations on Oct. 16. “It is very exciting news,” said Marguerite Beaulieu, cochairwoman of the committee. The group will receive its award on Nov. 5 at city hall during the Crime Prevention Ottawa’s annual awards gala. To celebrate the group’s accomplishments, a video will be made. “It will focus on how important participation from the residents is,” Beaulieu said. A collection of Vanier residents that pride themselves on being doers, not talkers, the group does everything from

picking garbage to planting and tending to gardens across the neighbourhood. The award, Beaulieu said, is quite an accomplishment and she wanted all the members to give themselves a pat on the back. Created as a way to counter drug and prostitution activities taking place in the neighbourhood, the group focused on beautification efforts, working from the theory that if Vanier is an attractive place to live, residents will respect the area more. As part of the nomination process, letters of support were sent to Crime Prevention Ottawa by the Vanier Community Association, the Vanier Community Service Centre and Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury. “My job is made easier, as a city councillor for Rideau-

Vanier ward, because of the amazing work that they do,” Fleury wrote in his letter. The meeting also saw the election of the group’s newest co-chairwoman, Tina Delaney, who will replace Lucie Marleau. “Tina (Delaney) is an avid gardener, an enthusiastic member and a devoted resident of Vanier,” Beaulieu said. “I truly look forward to working with you.”

Residents share thoughts Continued from page 1

The event began with a panel presentation from Bordeleau, Patterson, Crime Prevention Ottawa executive director Nancy Worsfold and a special guest speaker, Jabari Lindsay, a youth development manager for the City of Toronto. “This is not a problem we can arrest our way out of,” Bordeleau said, emphasizing that solutions must be collaborative and focused on preventing youth from becoming involved with gangs. “We don’t have to reinvent the wheel. All we have to do is look beyond our borders and see what we can adapt to use in our community,” Bordeleau said. Lindsay shared one tip that resonated with the panel and audience: we can’t forget to “help the helpers.” Healing communities is about taking care of the people who are addressing these issues in the community, too, he said. Afterwards, around 200 people in attendance had a chance to share their thoughts, stories and questions with the panel. One resident, Frank Reid, thanked organizers for putting together the forum because too often, these types of discussions only happen at the national level. “This is where it impacts the community the most, locally,” Reid said. Mohamed Sofa, a community activist from PinecrestQueensway who now lives in Beacon Hill-Cyrville, said forums alone are not going to make a difference. “We have more policing, more public forums and no more programs,” Sofa said. “That’s not a recipe for success.” He said Ottawa is very bureaucratic and has historically not been willing to take a risk and provide grants to fund

grassroots community projects. “How can we take this discussion to the neighbourhoods and provide funding that will change lives?” said Sofa. In Toronto, Lindsay said the city has been willing to give out “really risky grants” to small, community-led groups, to “honour people who have ideas.” When money goes to frontline workers and people directly in the community, there is more chance of success, he said. The most poignant moment of the evening came when a woman gave an emotional plea for the city to acknowledge and assist the “invisible victims:” mothers of the young people involved in gang activity. “Those men, respect their mothers. You need to talk to them,” she said. Reaching out to people directly affected and involved with gang activity was also on the mind of Sandy Hill resident Christien Levien. He called on the police to reach out directly to youth involved in gangs in order to create an effective solution. “We won’t hear their voices, because they’re not here,” Levien said. “They will be further marginalized.” Creating a “collaborative solution,” as the city says it wants to do, involves collaborating with people directly involved with the problem – not just city departments and agencies, Levien said. “We’re open to that,” Bordeleau said, adding that it is extremely difficult to engage current gang members in those kinds of discussions. In an interview after the forum, Bordeleau said police have connected with former gang members in the past and found it very helpful, but he stressed that he would greatly appreciate anyone who could direct him to a gang-involved youth who is willing to talk.

Light the Night walk raises nearly $350,000 Gabrielle Tieman

EMC news - Four thousand balloon clad, banner-wielding and cheering participants raised almost $350,000 for blood cancer research during Ottawa’s Light the Night walk Saturday evening, Oct. 13. “Canada has more than 100,000 people living with or in remission from blood cancer,” said Andrea Swinton, the executive director of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada. “Since our first Ottawa walk in 2010, we have raised over $1 million for research.” The third-annual event featured a leisurely walk along the canal where participants carried illuminated balloons to light the path - white for survivors, red for supporters, and gold in memory of those lost. When Lesia Maruschak was diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia in 2010, she said information about the disease fed her fears. Now one of this year’s honoured heroes for Light the Night, Maruschak and her team of 55 raised more than $28,000. “Cancer changed who I am,” said Maruschak. “Getting involved in Light the Night has changed how I feel about my diagnosis and how I live day to day. This event shows why research and pa-

Lola and Ella Mckechnie were among the youngsters who participated in the Light the Night walk on Oct. 13. tient support is so important.” For cousins Keith Wilde and Megan Macrae, the walk was not only about supporting Wilde’s dad, but supporting everyone who was there for a loved one. “Everyone here is sad for a similar reason,” said Macrae. “It’s nice to bring all of these people together for a joint cause. It gains aware-

ness while acting as a support group.” Funds raised by walkers will help provide lifesaving blood cancer research, free educational materials for patients and families and comprehensive personal assistance across Canada. There will be 10 fundraiser walks from Victoria to Halifax.

Residents of the Carson Grove area came out to remember the late Red (Carson) and Maureen Miller, active residents in the community when they lived in Carson Grove.

Carson Grove plants memory tree Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - The ďŹ rst Carson Grove Community Association president and his wife will forever have a presence near the baseball diamond they worked to put in the community. A tree-planting ceremony for the late Carson Red Miller and Maureen Miller on Oct. 14 drew a large crowd, despite heavy rain. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clearly this person was important in the community,â&#x20AC;? said Beacon Hill-Cyrville Coun. Tim Tierney. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was very impressed.â&#x20AC;? The community association

for the area is now the Rockcliffe Mews-Carson Grove Residentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Association. President Norm Kruse said that Red and Maureenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter, Kathryn Williams, contacted the association with the idea to plant a tree in memory of her parents. Kruse told those gathered at the planting that, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Red and Maureen led by example and decided to make a difference to their community. Just as the late John Kennedy said in his famous speech, ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country. The same applies to your community. Get involved,

make a difference.â&#x20AC;? Their children who attended brought memorabilia from the pairâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gloucester days and volunteer work. Kruse said the association was happy to honour the pair because though the former association has disbanded, longtime residents of the community remember the work Red and Maureen did. The maple tree is next to the baseball diamond near Carson Grove Elementary School that Tierney said Red Miller was instrumental in having built in the community. They were also key in having a Carson Grove play area installed.

General Care Rabbits make good pets for a family, but children should not be expected to look after a rabbit without parental help. Small children need to be supervised. Rabbits should be lifted with their weight fully supported, never by the scruff of the neck or ears. They can be easily injured through improper handling. Brush your rabbitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coat daily and trim his nails every few weeks. Your rabbit can be taught to share your home though hazards such as electrical cords and toxic plants should be removed or made inaccessible to prevent accidents. Rabbits will chew and dig, so provide acceptable items for these purposes such as untreated wooden toys and a safe digging BOXlLLEDWITHSTRAW%NCOURAGEYOURRABBITTOUSETHESE items to minimize damage to your furnishings. Kind training, using lots of praise and treats, will teach your rabbit his place as a member of the family.

A Quick Guide to Rabbits Rabbits are intelligent, social animals. When given plenty of attention, they make affectionate and rewarding family pets. They can be trained to use a litter box and are more enjoyable, responsive pets when living indoors as house rabbits. Given appropriate care, a rabbit can live up to 10 years.

Feed Your Head presents

Films for Mental Health

Featuring two great documentary films produced by the ISF Screening will be followed by a question and answer period led by

Kent MacLeod, BSc, Clinical Pharmacist, and Dominika Zarzeczny, ND FEED YOUR HEAD (45 min)

Do Our Thoughts, Moods and Behaviours Depend upon What We Eat?

About the life and work of Dr. Abram Hoffer, this documentary won the Founder’s award “for an outstanding production exemplifying historical Canadian characters or events” at the Yorkton Film Festival in Saskatchewan. Shot across Canada from 2006 to 2009, the film tells the story of Dr. Hoffer and Humphry Osmond, who met in 1951 and embarked on a quest to find what psychiatry said didn’t exist: a cure for schizophrenia. They showed that mental illness could be controlled with natural foods, healthy lifestyles, and large doses of vitamins. Linus Pauling called this approach “orthomolecular.” Sixty years later thousands have been helped by these heretical ideas, and educated consumers want more common sense in mental health care.

MASKS OF MADNESS : SCIENCE OF HEALING (15 min)

Hosted by actress Margot Kidder, who suffered from bipolar disorder, the documentary chronicles the experiences of patients and doctors who went beyond conventional psychiatry to find answers in orthomolecular medicine. Margot and other patients discuss their mental illness, their difficulties in getting answers and their final recoveries using diet, vitamins and a minimum of pharmacological intervention. Doctors including Abram Hoffer, Hugh Riordan, and Hyla Cass, describe their therapeutic methods, and their professional satisfaction at seeing patients recover from the “incurable.” Kent MacLeod is a Clinical Pharmacist and Director of NutriChem Compounding Pharmacy and Clinic. Named the 2009 Canadian Compounding Pharmacist of the Year, Kent is a published author and has lectured throughout North America. Dominika Zarzeczny is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor. Having recently joined NutriChem’s clinical team, she is dedicated to providing comprehensive and effective natural health care for her patients while teaching the principles of healthy living.
