up on new site plan rules Sandy Hill project flies under radar after ‘miscommunication’ Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - The skeleton of a home is all that remains at 45 Blackburn Ave. in Sandy Hill. Currently under construction, the project has angered a number of residents in the area, who have called on the city to explain how it enforces its own by bylaws. Questions surrounding the development began in the September when the former singlefamily home was gutted, leaving only the facade. As part of a change made in May to the city’s infill guidelines, a pilot project is underway in Sandy Hill, which asks a developer to submit a site plan if the intention is to convert a single dwelling home into a multiresidential dwelling consisting of three or more units. This didn’t happen in the case of 45 Blackburn. Christopher Collmorgen, president of Action Sandy Hill, said area residents have been questioning the city about the development and as it turns out, the conversion to a four-unit dwelling should have triggered the submission of a site plan. “As far as the community is concerned, it is simply that there is a process in place and that it should be followed. That the bylaw should be respected,” Collmorgen said. The zoning bylaw change was aimed at reining in the number of developers converting existing dwellings -- which requires a building permit -as opposed to demolishing to build new, which requires a site plan application.

OC Transpo Presto cards delayed again More cards coming in January, but full rollout pushed to summer Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

Those cards will start to work on buses on Feb. 1. If everything is working to the city and Metrolinx’s satisfaction, a full rollout could happen by June. The city has negotiated

a $3-million discount on its $23.5-million Presto bill to account for the delay. That’s despite insistence from Metrolinx CEO Bruce McCuaig that the system is now “fully functional,” with more than 98 per cent of payment taps working correctly. The additional delay would help Metrolinx “fine tune” the system to prepare for more users, he said. “The system is fully func-

tional right now and I think the issue really is when is the right time to go to the next level,” McCuaig said. Metrolinx officials indicated in August that they planned to phase-in the cards, but the timeline wasn’t clear. T he city was planning to distribute as many as 200,000 Presto cards starting last June. That number is expected the serve the total number of OC Transpo customers anticipated to use the cards in Ottawa. See CITY, page 6

Sports dome shift to university campus halted Recreational teams turfed as city, owner spar over contract details Laura Mueller Laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Thousands of Ottawa athletes will be left with no place to play this winter after the owner of a sports dome and the city failed to reach a deal. Coliseum Inc. owner Marty Lauter said he spent several “anxious” months waiting for a contract from the city to move his sports dome from Lansdowne Park to a new sports field at the University of Ottawa’s 200 Lees Ave. campus before being presented with a “take it or leave it deal” that left him no choice but to walk away. “It strayed quite a bit from what we originally discussed,” said Lauter, who refused to discuss details of the contract. “I asked the city how we could work it out and I was told: ‘This is the agreement.’ “We asked for dialog and they wouldn’t give us any. They sent us a note (saying) ‘take it or leave it.’” But a memo from the city’s top lawyer says the city has not formally terminated negotiations, and that the city has tried unsuccessfully to reach Coliseum Inc.’s lawyers and

continue to try and discuss the situation. “The city has not heard directly from Coliseum Inc. on the Nov. 13 agreement and is surprised about the message on Coliseum’s website - claiming that negotiations have been terminated,” the memo from city clerk and solicitor Rick O’Connor reads. The contract was sent to Coliseum on Nov. 13 with the stipulation that it had to be signed by Nov. 21. Whether he accepted the deal or not, Lauter said the result would be the same – he’d go out of business. He has run Coliseum Inc. for 18 years, including the dome for the past 12 years, and the space is constantly pre-booked to capacity by groups like the Ottawa Sport and Social Club, Lauter said. More than 300 soccer teams usually use the dome in the winter, he said. Their money is being refunded, Lauter said. “We have a lot of disappointed people,” he said. “I don’t have a job. I lose my business … I have a business that’s been in business for 18 years. We’re at capacity, prebooked, and we’ve just been

That happened twice and it cost

him a good chunk of change, Lauter said. The University of Ottawa refuted that. “The field at Lees was ready for installation,” said Patrick Charette, director of corporate communications for the university. “That’s our position. “There were some minor issues brought up to our attention, but we never felt that was a major obstacle for a

field installation. The field was ready.” He said the university is also disappointed because it was planning to run new winter programs in the space, such as indoor soccer and touch football. “That’s not going to happen,” he said, adding the university will be working with the city to make other arrangements for next winter to ensure

the programs can happen. The university’s athletics department will be re-organizing intramurals and team practices to attempt to find alternative space for all groups that were supposed to use the dome, Charette said. A new location for the dome had to be found due to the Lansdowne redevelopment. Council approved moving the dome last December.

$240,000 goes missing from Booth Centre But stolen money won’t affect Salvation Army activities Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - The Salvation Army Booth Centre executive director has been fired after more than $200,000 was reported missing. For the past eight years, Perry Rowe has held the position of executive director at the centre, but John Murray, spokesman for the centre, confirmed Rowe was fired after a whistleblower came forward stating $240,000 has gone missing from the centre’s operating budget. The whistleblower, Murray said, came forward five weeks ago and an external group was called in to conduct a forensic audit. “The Salvation Army acted swiftly and the executive director was first placed under a leave of absence,” Murray said. After reviewing the audit’s

initial findings, police were contacted and a full investigation was started. Rowe was fired at this point. No charges have been laid yet by police and the allegations have not been proven in a court of law. According to Murray, the organization will be looking at all the finances of the centre for the past eight years. The Booth Centre has an annual operating budget of $6 million and Murray said the missing money will not affect any operating programs or the start of the holiday season’s kettle campaign. “No programs have been negatively affected and our focus is on moving forward,” he said. Connie Woloschuk, a former executive director of the Booth Centre, was named interim director. “Connie has a great relationship with staff and Ottawa,” he said. As for staff at the centre, Murray said they are shaken, but will focus on the road ahead.

The Salvation Army’s annual kettle campaign kicked off Nov. 16 and runs until 12 p.m. on Dec. 24. Following the announcment that $240,000 had gone missing from the Booth Centre, the Salvation Army said the money taken was not from the campaign. The 2012 kettle campaign was launched on Nov. 20 and the Salvation Army Ottawa seeks to raise $700,000 for local programming. Murray said he hopes the community will understand the allegations of fraud do not affect this year’s campaign goals.

“We respect every donation received...the alleged fraud that took place is an isolated incident and is not connected to the Christmas kettle campaign,” he said. To find a kettle in your neighbourhood, to volunteer or to make a donation online visit www.salvationarmy.ca.

The Ring Dam at Chaudière Falls controls the flow of water into the generating stations.

Hydro Ottawa has more than doubled its clean, renewable hydroelectric generation at Chaudière Falls with the purchase of three hydroelectric stations and a 38.3 percent interest in the Ring Dam from Domtar. The company already operates three other stations with a capacity of 17 megawatts at Chaudière Falls. In fact, Hydro Ottawa has more than 100 years of experience running hydroelectric plants at the site. One of the existing stations dates back to 1891, and another entered service in 1900. “What many people don’t know is that the first instance of hydroelectric generation in Canada – and one of the first in the entire world – occurred right here in the heart of the nation’s capital,” said Mayor Jim Watson. With this new purchase of three stations from Domtar, Hydro Ottawa’s hydroelectric generating capacity will more than double to 37 megawatts – producing enough clean energy to meet the needs of 28,000 households. Another benefit of the purchase is that the Chaudière Falls site is one of the largest remaining water-power sites available in Ontario, with an expansion opportunity that could see Hydro Ottawa’s hydroelectric capacity grow to 60 megawatts.

Glebe holiday shopping spree contest returns Campaign aims to encourage residents to shop locally this holiday season Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

SUBMITTED

Will Raymond won a $10,000 shopping spree prize in January for doing something he always does – shop in the Glebe. The Glebe Spree contest, launched by the local business improvement area, will be held again this holiday season as a way to encourage residents to shop locally.

EMC news - Glebe businesses are preparing to entice residents with thousands of dollars in prize money to shop locally once again this holiday season. The second annual GlebeSpree campaign was launched by the Glebe Business Improvement Area on Nov. 19, offering people who choose to do their shopping locally the chance to win $10,000. “(The) Glebe Spree allows us to reward our faithful customers and to invite new clients to discover all that the Glebe has to offer,” said Greg Best, Glebe BIA chairman. The contest sees participants use a mini-brochure called a “passport” to collect stickers for every $20 spent at

stores in the Glebe. Once $200 worth of stickers is collected, contestants can enter for a chance to win the $10,000 prize. This year, Best said the association has made it even easier for contestants to enter the contest. “Once you have a completed ballot, you can just enter your unique pin code on your passport either through our Facebook page or at glebespree.ca.” Ballots are also accepted in person. Contestants can fill out the ballots and drop them off at any of the participating businesses. The prize money has been donated by the Glebe BIA, the Scotiabank branch located at Bank Street and Fourth Avenue, McKeen Metro and the Trinity Development Group.

This is the second edition of the contest, which was started last year to encourage shopping along Bank Street after the city’s extensive reconstruction of the roadway. Last year’s contest saw more than 10,000 entries and that success is the main reason the association decided to bring the contest back for another year. Glebe resident Will Raymond won the spree last year and as an avid shopper in the neighbourhood, he said participating was an easy decision to make. “Everything is so close and I love shopping because it is all about talking to everyone and teasing them,” Raymond said after winning last year’s contest. The contest ends on Dec. 31 and the draw date to determine the contest winner will take place on Jan. 7, 2013. Contest details can be found at www.glebespree.ca.

Overbrook residents learn about their neighbourhood New members welcomed at association’s annual meeting Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Overbrook is one of the city’s best neighbourhoods to live in within walking distance of a grocery store: it takes most residents between four to 11 minutes to walk to their neighbourhood store. This was just one of the tidbits of information presented to residents at the Overbrook Community Association annual general meeting on Nov. 15 in a break from the typical fare presented at such gatherings. Only a small amount of time was spent on board business and instead residents were invited to learn about their community from Elizabeth Kristjansson, a University of Ottawa professor who served as lead investigator for the Ottawa Neighbourhoods Study. “We developed profiles on every neighbourhood and I am here to share information about Overbrook,” she said. The data, Kristjansson said, comes from a number of surveys, research, the 2006 Canadian census and the university’s own findings. Most of the information presented at the meeting about Overbrook was obtained from the census. For the purposes of the study, the data collected for Overbrook included areas of the neighbouring community of Vanier from north of McArthur Avenue and expanding to Montreal Road. The study found that in 2006, the area had more than 11,000 residents, which was mainly a young and middle aged population. The statistic about proximity to grocery stores in Overbrook was just one of the pieces of information Kristjansson shared at the meeting. The average individual’s

income (2006) of $30,848 and household income of $51,900 rates below the city’s average of $34,844 and $86,848, respectively. The study found that after taxes, 29 per cent of residents live below the low income cut-off, again higher than the city’s average of 14.1 per cent. Residents at the meeting said the Vanier Parkway was an economic “moat” that divided the affluent, who lived on the west side, from the less well-off people who live on the east side. A desire for more resources, such as a medical clinic, in the neighbourhood was also addressed by residents at the meeting. Kristjansson agreed with the residents on most issues, adding that a lot of what was discussed was worth noting in the greater study. “The findings are for the communities to use to help shape their neighbourhoods,” she said. To date, data collected has been used by the Community Development Framework, a community resource centre project and area school boards, which have used the information to determine priority neighbourhoods for full day kindergarten. The study has also recently won the 2012 Canadian Institutes of Health Research Partnership Award. OTHER ITEMS

Other highlights from the meeting included association president Sheila Perry announcing Overbrook may be a candidate for an Ottawa Sens Foundation Rink of Dreams. The goals for the association remain to continue to engage residents, which Perry admitted to being an ongoing

EMC news - A database of food-related data aimed at creating healthier and safer communities in Ottawa was launched last week. The Ottawa Neighbourhood Study released its new food-related data at a forum called Meet, Eat And Learn on Nov. 20. The new food resource data collected by the study will be used by Ottawa Public Health and other city departments for urban and health planning. It will also be used to mobilize and inform residents and community partners to create healthier and safer communities. “With this new data in

hand, OPH and our partners can better address social challenges such as the lack of proper access to healthy foods,” said Dr. Isra Levy, chief medical officer of health. “This data also guides us to better direct our efforts to address each neighbourhood’s specific needs.” Initial analysis of the data shows residents in 22 of 33 Ottawa neighbourhoods of low socio-economic status must travel more than one kilometre or a brisk 15 minute walk to access healthy affordable food. The University of Ottawa, Ottawa Public Health and the city, local community health and resource centres, Carleton University, United Way

Ottawa, the Champlain Local Health Integration Network and IBM participated in the creation of the database. University of Ottawa professor and lead investigator for the study, Elizabeth Kristjansson, gave IBM credit for the new website that hosts the database. “The Ottawa Neighbourhood Study has had a great impact on informing public policy and has contributed greatly to better public education at the community level,” Kristjansson said. A full look at the neighbourhoods profiled in the study and data collected in Ottawa is available on the organization’s website at www. neighbourhoodstudy.ca.

City to announce new timeline this spring

COMING SOON LIGHT RAIL DESIGN SHOWCASE

Continued from page 1

While Presto is used in several cities in southern Ontario including Toronto, Ottawa is the first city to roll out a “new generation” system. Some of the 2,000 people involved in the pilot project had been getting error messages when they tapped their cards on the readers to pay their bus fare in the summer, while others reported that the cards weren’t recognizing when the user topped them up with more value. The implementation timeline is scheduled to be announced on April 17,l along with a report updating transit commissioners on how the system is working with 12,000 users. Full rollout could happen on May 1 or June 1, 2013. But the city also negotiated a clause that would allow either OC Transpo or Metrolinx to withdraw from the deal before June 1. In that case, Metrolinx would absorb the costs from setting up cards readers and other equipment. It’s unclear if the $9.2 million the provincial government kicked in for the project would still be available if Ottawa ditched Presto and

found another payment system, but that process could take another three years, OC Transpo general manager John Manconi estimated. An escape clause was missing from the original agreement and it’s something Manconi and OC Transpo staff should be applauded for negotiating now, transit commission chairwoman Diane Deans said. Deans said she wasn’t as involved in the rollout in the beginning and relied on advice from staff, including former OC Transpo general manager Alain Mercier and Metrolinx officials. “I’ve learned as we’ve gone along that this is much more complex than I certainly knew and (more complex) than we were getting from our staff at the time. “It has become clear to me that trying to issue 200,000 cards on a single day is probably not the best idea,” Deans said. “So why they decided to do it all in one day before, I’m not 100 per cent sure, but I can say with certainty now that this is a better plan.” McCuaig said he wasn’t one of the people at the table when the initial decision for a full, July 1 rollout was made,

but he said that plan was based on wanting to make the cards available to as many riders as possible, as quickly as possible. “But I think what we believe is the right movingforward choice is to be more methodical about it,” he said. McCuaig said Metrolinx learned a lesson from the issues the Ottawa rollout faced. “The lesson that was learned here was to go with a methodical, step-wise approach and that’s the approach we plan to take, that’s the approach OC Transpo agrees is the right path forward, McCuaig said. “When we look at how to deploy Presto in other locations, that’s the approach we’ll be taking.” Commissioners were hesitant to ditch the Presto plan completely because they feel it’s important to have a smart-card payment system in place for the city’s new light-rail transit system that will be built and operational by 2018. About half of the city’s 75 new double-decker buses still need to be outfitted with Presto card readers, but the rest of the transit system is ready to go.

The Tabitha Foundation is a benevolent trust, founded in 1994 to support aid efforts begun and organized by Janne Ritskes. Our field activities are centered in Cambodia, whose people were decimated by a regime which promoted enforced starvation, mass executions, slave labour and wholesale dislocation to such a degree that the social, moral and economic fibre of the country was left in tatters. The integrated development initiatives include work in health care, education, sanitation (water, sewage), housing, small business and co-operatives. These efforts enable the poorest of the poor to improve their health status, rebuild shanties into homes, have their own toilets, clean water, and drainage systems, reconstruct roads, develop their own small businesses or become workers in cottage industry programs and learn to work together as a community. The people of Cambodia have endured severe poverty for the past 30 years— since the Pol Pot era. In that era everything was destroyed: family, social structure, infrastructure, spirituality. The resulting trauma of that period has left the people with a feeling of hopelessness and futility. Cambodians believe they are to blame for their situation—that somehow they deserve their lot. Tabitha-Cambodia works with the poorest members of the community, encouraging them to save and work their way out of poverty. Many poor Cambodian families have no house and virtually no possessions. Despite this, most generate a meager weekly income. Tabitha helps these families to develop a vision of a better life and encourages them to join the Savings Program.

Heartwood House ready to launch fundraiser Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Heartwood House will look for community support this December to help make their move to McArthur Avenue a smooth one. The charity co-op, which houses 17 non-profit organizations under one roof, needs to raise $400,000 to help renovate its new building at 400412 McArthur Ave. In order to meet this need, the organization will officially launch its fundraising campaign on Dec. 3 at their current building at 151 Chapel St. Lead organizer for the campaign Isobel Bisby said donors will have multiple options to help the cause. “This will be our big push to raise the funds so we have made it easy for everyone,” Bisby said. Features the organization has created for donors during the campaign include “buy a square foot campaign” which offer donors the chance to purchase $25 gift certificates that represent renovations of one square foot -- 0.09 square meters -- of the building. Collecting electronic waste for recycling is another activity

the campaign is using to raise funds. Residents can drop off electronic waste at the Chapel Street centre. The organization has also launched a Toonie Campaign, where volunteers can collect “Toonie kits” that include a collecting cans and pledge cards in the shape of postcards. Once Toonie kits are in hand, volunteers are encouraged to host events or take the cans door-to-door or at other festivals and events happening in the city. The organization is encouraging pledge cards to be dropped off at various places within the city as well. This move to Overbrook follows news the organization received last November when Heartwood House’s landlords, the Beth Shalom Synagogue, sold the building the organization rented to Claridge Homes. Upon hearing the news, Heartwood House began looking to purchase a building of its own. To purchase the property, the organization joined in partnership with the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Ottawa. The church will own 12.5 per cent of the property; Heatwood House will own the

Coffee, 317 Wilbrod St. remaining 87.5 per cent. Maureen Moloughney, executive director of Heatwood House, said the partnership works because both organizations have similar views and ideals. The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Ottawa welcomes everyone to its Sunday services, under the concept of “shared ministry.” “Our missions are very much in harmony, we are a good match,” said Moloughney. The executive director said the new building will be an exciting venture for Heartwood House, which was a

How Ottawa got its game back

W

hoever says Ottawa is a town that fun forgot had better take a second look Following an announcement last week that a professional menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball club is set to take up residence in the city later next year, the capital is starting to look like Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sporting hotbed. Once the National Basketball League of Canada franchise starts up, it will add to the expanding roster

of athletic attractions in this city, potentially placing it second only to Toronto when it comes to professional sporting clubs. By the summer of 2015, we could boast National Hockey League, Canadian Football League, North American Soccer League and major league-affiliated baseball clubs. Also playing in the city are the Ottawa 67â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and varsity teams from two universities. Ottawa would be one of

the few NHL cities to also host a Canadian Hockey League franchise, and would be home to the only the third MLB-affiliate baseball club outside of the Toronto Blue Jays and Vancouver Canadians. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop there either. Ottawa will play host to a pair of high-profile international womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sporting events over the next few years in the form of the Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s World Ice Hockey Championship and

the Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s World Cup, the top soccer tournament for female competitors. What does this say about the fortunes of a town that has in the recent past been considered a sporting basket case, one that lost its CFL club twice, its former TripleA ball team in 2006 and nearly lost the Senators 10 years ago? Clearly Ottawa has its game back. That shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be too surprising though. Ottawans love being active. We love to

cycle, we love to canoe, we love to ski, we love to run. The Ottawa Race Weekend, for example, routinely draws tens of thousands of runners. The roads in the city are sprinkled with cars sporting racks to carry either boats or bikes. This passion for activity makes it rather natural for us to appreciate other athletic endeavours. The Senators regularly fill the 18,000plus seat Scotiabank Place. Despite the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passion for

the NHL, the 67â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s are among the CHL attendance leaders. Interest in the Ottawa Fat Cats Intercounty Baseball League franchise helped prove Ottawa was still a viable market for a minor league baseball affiliate. If thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s action on the field, ice or court, Ottawans will be there. The city should be taking every opportunity to show the rest of the country, and the rest of the world for that matter, how passionate Ottawa is about sports and how it plays a significant role in making the capital an exciting, diverse place to live.

Progress doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be awful CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

T

eeth have been publicly gnashed for several weeks over possible changes at the Elmdale Tavern in Hintonburgh. There is new ownership and Elmdale devotees, not all of whom have ever been there, fear the worst. The â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Dale will become a fern bar, or the modern equivalent thereof. Arugula salads will be served and Michael BublĂŠ will be heard over the sound system. Never mind that no one has actually made any announcement to that effect, the concerns are understandable in a way because what they are really about it is a changing neighbourhood. People have watched this happen elsewhere and what they fear is a kind of homogeneity: the street fills with moderately upscale eateries and stores, patronized by moderately upscale people wearing moderately upscale casual clothes and driving moderately upscale cars. While nicer, it becomes indistinguishable from other moderately upscale neighbourhoods. In a larger sense, the Elmdale has come to stand in for a generalized lamenting of progress. Things change and we like them to stay the way they were, although we do like colour TV, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we, and email, the odd cappuccino and maybe even back-up cameras in new cars. Not that we wish the Elmdale any harm, having been there, but it is worth remembering that not all change is bad. In the heyday of the Ontario tavern, say 50 years ago, taverns were very different and not always in a good way. There were no windows onto the street. Women were not allowed or were segregated into one section of the place. You couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pick up your beer and walk to another table.

You couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even stand up with a beer in your hand. There were no games to play, no decent food, no live music. These were the rules, imposed by the province. The result of those rules was the only thing you could do in a tavern was drink. Which is what people did, with considerable enthusiasm, and then they went outside, got into their cars and drove home, not always without incident. Those who lament changing times sometimes forget that times can also change for the better. Most pubs today are brighter and cheerier. There is good food. There are as many women as men. There is live music or, failing that, screens to watch sports on. There is less emphasis on drinking, per se. The pub has become a place you can hang out without drinking a lot, or even anything, and you can probably get a ride home with someone who is sober. The Elmdale and other local institutions have moved a long way in this direction and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a bad thing. The drinking culture has changed and, unlike some other cultural changes, this one is welcome. This is not to say that we should welcome a trend where every pub becomes like every other pub, every neighbourhood becomes like every other neighbourhood and every family looks like every other family. But we, owners and customers, hold the key to avoiding that. The owner is tempted to follow the safe route of imitating other successful businesses. But the enlightened owner knows the key to success lies in creating something original. Then we, the customers can go to this different business and feel original ourselves, until eventually there are too many of us being original in the same way and we have to move on to something different. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not easy, this stuff. As customers we probably donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t insist often enough on originality. We go where other people go, which is one of the reasons that chains thrive and threaten the uniqueness of old neighbourhoods. We could block that by supporting originals and helping them survive.

How not to win an argument Fleury wants bylaw reworded Continued from page 1

T

he other day, my six-year-old got caught up in a whirlwind of whining â&#x20AC;&#x201C; blaming, complaining and name-calling. It was Saturday. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d had an unusually late night. We were at our wits end. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You need to stop and apologize for the way youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re speaking to everyone,â&#x20AC;? I said, as we were trying to get out the door. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You need to say sorry to your brother for calling him a name and ask how you can make it right.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not my fault I said that,â&#x20AC;? he said. I felt a tingle of rage go up my back. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not my fault.â&#x20AC;? Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to teach our kids to take responsibility for things. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to teach them respect for others. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to teach them that if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like something, you have the power to change it. But sometimes, as parents, we fail. Perhaps a more realistic way of explaining it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; these things take time. I have a sense, however, that an entire generation of parents failed on a larger scale than we did last Saturday morning. Their inability to impart responsibility to their children has culminated in a movement called the Occupy Movement. Although itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largely believed to have started in Madrid, the Occupy Movement first garnered mainstream attention when it held a protest on Wall Street for months starting in September 2011. From there, the movement garnered momentum, as like groups organized simultaneous protests in major cities across the Western world. The movementâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s focus â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if you want to call it that â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is to protest against social and economic inequality. Their mantra is â&#x20AC;&#x153;we are the 99 per cent,â&#x20AC;? stemming from the idea that one per cent of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population controls 99 per cent of the wealth. They advocate things like tax evasion and simultaneously argue for the government to pay for social programs. They use their iPads, smartphones, and wireless infrastructure daily

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse to blame big business and banks and politicians for the state of the world. They get on gas-fuelled buses and protest outside oil companies; they takeover the streets of Montreal in their Nike shoes and burn the place up because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been asked to start contributing an increased percentage of their tuition fees. (Of course, unless they succeed in their goal of tax evasion, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll pay for those tuition fees eventually).

Whatever the subject of the day, the message is, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like the world, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not my fault the world is like this.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Occupy Canada and its sibling organizations have Facebook pages and Twitter accounts and all the things needed to take the momentum of the first four months of active protests and keep it going in the virtual world. I like a dissenting voice as much as the next gal, so I signed up, and started to read what was being posted a gazillion times each day. Every article posted by the administrators on Facebook, every subsequent comment posted by the 54,000-or-so members of the Occupy Canada group represents a big whine-fest. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s policy on Israel. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like oil. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like meat-eaters, but they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like people that eat imported food either. Whatever the subject of the day, the message is, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like the world, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not my fault the world is like this.â&#x20AC;? To get this message

across, the group uses a lot of hyperbole â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including namecalling â&#x20AC;&#x201C; comparing Stephen Harper to Hitler and other such ridiculous things. Finally, one day, I got fed up. This group claims to represent the other 99 per cent. So theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re supposed to represent me, right? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not a bank, nor an oil company. The last time I checked, as a freelancer, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work for the establishment either. In a way, I wanted to help the movement, so I posted on its wall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hey, you have a lot of complaints about the establishment,â&#x20AC;? I wrote â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or something to that effect. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t presented any alternatives.â&#x20AC;? As I expected, a few of the loyal members wrote back to call me names. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just saying, if you want to grow your movement, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to stop preaching to the choir,â&#x20AC;? I wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What are the alternatives to big oil and banks? People inevitably turn away from ideas and ideologies that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t match their own. If you want to change peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s minds, you need to give them something more positive, some action steps.â&#x20AC;? Occupy Canada blocked me from writing on its wall. It criticizes but canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t handle constructive criticism that incites its members to action. As a result, I predict itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s maxed out its membership at 54,000, (which is hardly 99 per cent of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population). In short, the Occupy Movement is destined to remain on the fringes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; because, frankly, it canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t win â&#x20AC;&#x153;the argument.â&#x20AC;? Name-calling, complaining and blaming are ineffective means of forcing change to the establishment at my house. Imagine what little effect they have in the big, bad world.

Rockcliffe PS fraud accused appears in court Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - The man accused of stealing milk and pizza money from the Rockcliffe Park Public school council bank account made his first appearance in court on Nov. 21. Mark MacDonald was charged with fraud over $5,000, having possession of money over $5,000 knowing it had been obtained by crime and obtaining funds under false pretenses after more than $75,000 went missing from the school councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s account. MacDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defence team, McCann and Lyttle As-

sociates, requested a review of disclosure from the presiding judge, Kathleen Miller. The missing $76,651 threatened the operation of a number of council-run programs including milk and pizza money, school trips and an after-school homework club. Police were first contacted by the council about the missing money in early March, but at that time investigators told the council there was not enough evidence to look into the matter further. It was not until late March that police were contacted for the second time by the council and an investigation was initiated.

The missing funds were brought to light when Bettye Hyde, the provider of the after-school daycare program, notified parents the program had not been paid since December 2011 and there was an outstanding balance of $35,000. The councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board of directors had also noticed irregularities as early as February, when it was notified by a pizza supplier that payment had not been made. A special council board meeting was subsequently held in March to discuss the daycareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s payment issues. MacDonald is scheduled to appear in court again on Dec.12.

According to the area councillor, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s failure to follow this new procedure with 45 Blackburn comes down to miscommunication at city hall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was as if the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right hand was not speaking to its left,â&#x20AC;? Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury said. According to Fleury the developer, 7243855 Canada Inc., did not know the conversion of the home, which planning staff were told was a rooming house, required a full site plan application. The developer submitted an outline of a site plan instead, a building permit was issued and a construction began. When only the shell of the former home and a new foundation covering a large portion of the backyard was all that remained, questions started to be asked in the community. It took awhile, Collmorgen said but Fleuryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office and planning committee members did confirm a mistake had been made. According to Fleury, rooming houses are licensed by the city and planning staff incorrectly believed they were categorized as a multi-unit dwelling and therefore not subject to following the new bylaw. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The intentions of the both the community and my staff were good and as they (city staff) were building the policy

for the site plan bylaw, it is reasonable that there were growing pains,â&#x20AC;? Fleury said. To ensure there is no more confusion from here on out, Fleuryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office will draft a motion to firm up the language in the site plan control bylaw. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was an honest mistake and we are going to pass a couple of motions to address the conversion confusions,â&#x20AC;? Fleury said. To remedy the situation, Fleury said, the city will now request a site plan from the owner, but will allow construction to continue. One of the partners in 7243855 Canada Inc., Tamer Abaza, confirmed on Nov. 21, that the company has now submitted a site plan for the property to the city. This process, which should have happened in the first place, will take three weeks. Under the Building Code Act, a permit can be revoked if a mistake or error was made when issued. Revoking a permit would not be done unless a full review of the situation has been completed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I understand the city is worried about litigation, but the question remains: would they have let him start without the site plan? Will they actually have the guts to say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Tear that downâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; if it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t comply?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? Collmorgen asked. Fleury said revoking the building permit would not help his case in proving there needs

to be re-wording for less ambiguities of the by law. The number of infill projects in Sandy Hill has increased steadily as enrolment at the University of Ottawa has gone up. The majority of the projects are to accommodate student housing, converting single family homes into multi-unit dwellings. This trend, according to Action Sandy Hill, has created problems in the neighbourhood, creating garbage collection and parking issues to go along with boisterous student behaviour. The new by law, Collmorgen said, was meant to help address these concerns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are very frustrated as a community that we have a bylaw to protect this from happening and the city rolls on the first challenge from a developer,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It seems like the developer is asking for forgiveness instead of permission.â&#x20AC;? The communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stance on the issue, Collmorgen said, is not to suggest it is against intensification. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To a certain point you have to accept you live downtown and there will be an impact when it comes to intensification, but there are steps that should be followed,â&#x20AC;? he said. The ultimate goal, Collmorgen said, would be if all developers came to the community first and worked with them. Some do, but for the most part it is about chasing them down after.

Centretown reaffirms community plan priorities Document won’t go before planning committee until 2013 Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - The news of yet another delay for the Centretown community design plan hit residents hard at the local association’s annual general meeting last week. The Centretown Citizens Community Association held its annual general meeting on at the McNabb Community Centre Nov. 21. The meeting saw more than 60 residents to in attendance to learn about the status of the community’s community design plan, or CDP, a document that will serve to guide future development. Brian Bourns, one of the association’s representatives for the development plan, provided an updated on the plan, stating the document wouldn’t be going to planning committee until after the holidays. This latest hiccup in the approval process will extend the delay of the approval to a year and a half from the time it was submitted. “We are probably not going to have it before committee until early 2013,” Bourns said. The delay is because of a document submitted by Fotenn Planning and Urban Design, a consulting firm acting on behalf of downtown developers. According to Bourns, the document requests changes to the final draft of the CDP. Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes confirmed the reason for the delay at the meeting. “The report has been submitted to the city and it is under review,” she said. In the meantime, the association will continue to focus on specific priorities it would like to see in the final CDP document, Bourns said. Those areas include maintaining Bank, Elgin and Somerset streets as the only streets where mixed-use developments take place, looking to

overturn the designation of Somerset Street and Galdstone Avenue as secondary main streets and the importance of design guidelines. “We want to make sure that design guidelines are enforced,” Bourns said. The goal of the document is to have a contemporary plan that will be considered when developers look to build in Centretown. At a June meeting with residents, Urban Strategies Inc.’s lead consultant for the project George Dark said he’d like to see area streets more “livable” for pedestrians and cyclists, as well as measures to ensure a greener Centretown. “We talked about green space, and you can count the number of public parks in the centre of Ottawa on one hand,” Dark had said. When it came to building heights, Dark said currently the tallest buildings are in the north end of the community and it’s important to have a transition from taller to shorter buildings. Bourns reiterated this fact on Nov. 21. “We are hoping for the CDP to reflect our design guidelines, including spacing between buildings,” he said. The community, Bourns added, wants to get the plan approved because they feel the community needs a framework that will be respected going forward. Looking ahead at respecting design guidelines, the meeting also welcomed two guest speakers. President of Action Sandy Hill Christopher Collmorgen discussed action his own association has taken to get things accomplished. Paul Kariouk, who is leading Centretown’s appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board concerning the development at 96 Nepean St., discussed the importance for green space and streetscape designs when

Kariouk showed using computer images the consequences of not adding greenery into a design and the importance of a proper sidewalk on a downtown street. The argument Kariouk presented will be part of the community’s position when it goes to the OMB. “The critical issues in the city are the quality of the sidewalk,” he said. “It sounds so simple, but when you go and walk around in Paris, you are walking around because of the sidewalk and streetscape. It is so fundamentally important to have this space.” For more information about the CDP visit the community association’s website at centretowncitizens.ca.

EMC news – The Ottawa Public Library’s main fundraiser has announced its intention to dissolve. The Ottawa Public Library Foundation was incorporated as a charitable institution in 2002 to enhance programming and services at the city’s library branches. It gave the library board notice on Monday, Nov. 19 that it will dissolve, although it did not say when or why. Since 2005, the foundation has raised about $500,000 for the library. The money has been used to improve or enhance programs like the library’s early literacy centres and the annual Small Business Week program that offers resources for entrepreneurs in

the city. A library staffer, who declined to be named, said the funding enhances programs “from B-level service to Alevel service.” She said the foundation’s closure would have no impact on programming, because the library board would “find ways to continue to provide the services customers are accustomed to.” At the library board meeting on Nov. 19, the library’s chief executive Danielle McDonald was directed to work with the foundation to ensure a “seamless transition process.” The staffer said it is still unclear what the library might do to make up the funding shortfall, as those decisions have not yet been made. Foundation chairman

Hunter McGill could not be reached for comment, but a statement on the foundation’s website called for continued support. “The foundation board of directors will meet shortly to decide on the organization’s future, and how to preserve the funds entrusted to us for the Ottawa Public Library’s resources, programs and services,” McGill wrote. “In the meantime, any donations to the foundation will be gratefully accepted, acknowledged and receipted. They will be used to support the priorities already identified jointly by the library and the foundation.” Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder, chairwoman of the library board, could not be reached for comment by this paper’s deadline.

Sale of Elmdale Tavern worries patrons New owner of Hintonburg bar also runs Whalesbone Oyster House Steph Willems Steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - The reaction to recent news concerning the sale of the iconic Elmdale Tavern in Hintonburg to the owner of the Whalesbone Oyster House was swift, hastened by the use of social media. The fearful nature of the questions and lamenting of the potential loss of a longtime neighbourhood tavern could easily be a byproduct of a community undergoing rapid change. The two-storey building at 1084 Wellington St. W. has been there since 1909, when Hintonburg was a burgeoning, working class streetcar suburb. Since becoming the Elmdale Tavern in 1934, the neighbourhood has seen a Great Depression, a world war, a baby boom, the removal of streetcars and the nearby Bayview rail yards, an exodus to the suburbs, the subsequent onset of urban blight and an eventual return to prominence as a focal point for the city’s arts community and urban gentrification. Few things stay the same throughout that kind of time span, but in its role as the local watering hole, the Elmdale dutifully served as a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past – an historical oasis to buffer the condo towers, increased traffic and niche boutiques encroaching from all sides. With that in mind, it is easy to imagine the horror of learning the tavern had been bought by a seafood restaurant. Joshua Bishop had originally hoped

for the Whalesbone Oyster House to be located there, before he opened the current Bank Street location in 2003. Another bid on the property was lost in 2007, with ownership of the Elmdale going to Nat and Bruce Myles. Together, the couple did a good job boosting the tavern’s profile, adding near-nightly live music (the tavern is closed on Mondays) while playing up the bar’s rich history and maintaining the staples of a traditional Ottawa Valley tavern, meaning quart bottles of beer for sale, weird bar snacks and wood fixtures coated in decades worth of varnish. Online reaction to the news revealed a host of differing viewpoints. In an exchange held on the online discussion forum reddit.com, many lamented the potential loss of the last meeting place in Hintonburg that had survived the neighbourhood’s recent transition unscathed and intact. Others were glad to see the building accommodate a new business that would spruce up (and update) the bar’s interior while adding a new dining option to the community. Debate also swirled as to whether the Elmdale had devolved into a ‘hipster bar’ in the same way as old, fixedgear bikes and archaic brands of American beer. Hintonburg blogger Stéphanie Montreuil referred to the news as the “end of an era” in a Nov. 5 post on thelotuspad. com. Mentioning that she’s had good dining experiences

STEPH WILLEMS/METROLAND

The Elmdale Tavern in Hintonburg at 1084 Wellington St. W. has been sold to the owner of the Whalesbone Oyster House. The local watering hole has been in the community since 1934 . at Whalesbone, Montreuil admitted “the Elmdale will never be the same. And that is what saddens many of us.” The new owner failed to respond to inquiries before this paper’s deadline, though Bishop did reveal some of his intentions in a Nov. 5 CBC Radio interview. “The plans for the Elmdale are certainly to pay homage to the Elmdale, to maintain the

Elmdale name,” said Bishop, adding the addition of a kitchen would remove more than a third of the current seating area, while live music would be curtailed somewhat. “Performances absolutely will still occur,” he said. “We’ll continue to play homage to live music, just not six days a week.” During that CBC interview, Bishop remarked on the reac-

tion to the tavern’s sale. “There’s pros and cons to social media,” he said. “I think there’s an interpretation that we’re just going to come in there and absolutely change the place. I think people will be pleasantly surprised – it will be similar but different. There will be change, but we’re looking to maintain the name …We’re not making the Whalesbone West… . It will

EMC news - Ottawa-Orléans MP Royal Galipeau underwent outpatient skin cancer surgery on Nov. 20. He had surgery to remove basal cell carcinoma from his forehead. Basal cell carcinoma is a type of slow growing, nonmelanoma cancer. The cure rate with his chosen treatment in studies is 97 to 99.8 per cent, said Galipeau’s office. Though he had a Nov. 20 surgery date, he planned to return to the House of Commons later in the week and had scheduled events four days after, on Nov. 24. According to the Canadian Cancer Society, most skin cancers are basal cell carcinoma, which usually occurs due to sun exposure. The society estimates that 81,300 new cases of

non-melanoma skin cancer will be diagnosed in Canada over 2012. MCNEELY TO RETIRE

Centretown Community Health Centre executive director Simone Thibault and board president Jeff Morrison greet Ontario NDP leader Andrea Horwath on Nov. 22.

R0011367325

EMC news - Last week Ontario NDP leader Andrea Horwath kicked off an unofficial election campaign styled as province-wide conversations about health care. The Centretown Community Health Centre was one of the first stops on Horwathâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tour, during which she hopes to speak to everyone from frontline health-care workers to Ontario families about whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s working â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and what isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t â&#x20AC;&#x201C; about the way medical services are delivered in this province. With a possible provincial election looming in the new year in light of Premier Dalton McGuinty stepping down, the consultations could take on a new importance, Horwath said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the legislature doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come back â&#x20AC;Ś and we find ourselves in an election campaign, certainly this conversation can help inform our platform discussion,â&#x20AC;? Horwath said. But Horwath said she would rather get back to business in the legislature than be immersed in an election campaign. The legislature could resume by the end of January. Ontario NDP MPPs from across the province will be engaged in the consultation process, because the challenges still exist even if the legislature has been shut down, Horwath said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The health-care system is on peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s minds these days,â&#x20AC;? Howath said, in light of scandals surrounding

eHealth and ORNGE air ambulance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People worry about whether weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re focusing on their priorities,â&#x20AC;? she said. The Ontario NDP recently put out a discussion paper entitled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Delivering Access. Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Challenges: A consultation on healthcare,â&#x20AC;? which is available online at www.ontariondp.com. That guide contains the issues Horwath hopes to hear from Ontarians on. Anyone interested in sharing their thoughts can email yoursay@ ndp.on.ca. The document also contains information on some of the proposals the NDP has already brought to the table, such as putting a cap on the salaries of hospital executives. Horwath said she wanted to visit the Centretown Community Health Centre because her party puts a strong focus on the team health-care model. â&#x20AC;&#x153;CHCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (community health centres) play a very integral role in providing holistic care,â&#x20AC;? Horwath said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We often talk about illness. We need to spend some time focusing on wellness.â&#x20AC;? When it comes to taking pressure off critical healthcare services such as emergency rooms and long-term care, community health centres play an important role, Horwath said. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interested in hearing how the system could work better; her party has already suggested that expanding prenatal care offered through community health centres and adding nurse practitio-

that address overall wellbeing, Morrison said. Sixty per cent of health outcomes are related to social determinants and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the basis for the resources offered at the centre, he said. Each community is different, so each community health centre reflects that, offering the best service to meet the needs of the people who live there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The programming is diverse and responds to a communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needs,â&#x20AC;? he said.

New organization aims to connect businesses with talent Steph Willems Steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - Small and medium enterprises will have an easier time finding skilled talent following the Nov. 13 launch of Ottawa-based InTAC, an organization aimed at connecting international talent with Canadian businesses owners. Announced by the Ottawa Chinese Community Service Centre, the International Talent Acquisition Centre has partners in several Canadian cities as well as a strong presence in China. The goal is to connect Canadian small and medium businesses with solutions in the areas of staffing, bookkeeping, IT, training and business services. The initiative also serves to connect foreign-trained workers with unrecognized credentials with work in their field, which has been an ongoing problem plaguing skilled immigrants. “In the next 10 years, Ottawa will see 60,000 to 70,000

immigrants arrive,” said master of ceremonies Michael Curran. “Immigrants are more likely to be self-employed … It’s important to embrace the fact that immigrants bring so much zest and economic fervour to our community.” Many business partners are on board with the initiative, including Henry Warren LLP. Wesley Clover, HIVE Direct and Care Canada. Invest Ottawa, an organization devoted to fostering local job growth, was a natural partner. “Population projections show that … there will be fewer people entering Ottawa’s labour market,” said Sharon Kan, executive director of the community service centre. “Ottawa’s employers must continue to support and develop (job opportunities). This includes young people entering the workforce, current workers seeking professional development and international educated professionals who now account for the majority of the annual net labour

thusiastic about the In-TAC launch and said he is looking forward to growing the partnership and seeing the fruits of both organizations’ labour. “I think the relationship here is going to be spectacular,” he said. A number of speakers who found work with In-TAC’s partnering employers spoke of the difficulty finding professional work in Canada, ul-

timately persevering through hard work and determination. Shuang Xu, upon arriving in Ottawa, was assisted by the community service centre in finding an internship. She is now a full-time employee with Henry Warren LLP. Bojana Joksimovic of Care Canada spoke of the Catch22 so many foreign-trained workers face upon arriving in Canada.

“How do you get Canadian experience if no one takes you on?” she asked, referring to the ubiquitous job requirement of having previous experience in a given field. Joksimovic said involvement with organizations like In-TAC will pay big dividends for employers. “We’re in a position to offer something and get much more in return,” she said.

Jules Morin Park: Shovels hit the ground! After the opening of the Rink of Dreams in Marion-Dewar Plaza earlier this year, it is now the Lowertown communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s turn to welcome the first Ottawa Senator Foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s community rink our city. Last week, many of you came out to participate in the groundbreaking ceremony for the rink project, which also marked the official launch of the Jules Morin Park redevelopment. Jules Morin Park, a park identified as a top priority for renewal by our team, the community and the City, will undergo major renewal in the spring 2013. The new community rink will be a great improvement for Jules Morin Park! The rink will be NHL sized (200 x 85), will have permanent boards and an asphalt pad, will have better ice quality, which will offer a longer ice season. Lace up your skates and come out this winter to enjoy our new rink! SUBMITTED

Beatrice dVries is launching a new â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;pony preschoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; at the Greenbelt Riding School on Albion Road this January.

The rink at Jules Morin Park is the first of eight community rinks that will be built throughout the city by the Ottawa Senators foundation in partnership with the City of Ottawa.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the only preschool of its kind in Ottawa, offering children the chance to get up close and personal with the ponies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They groom them and learn about horsemanship,â&#x20AC;? dVries said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They learn all you need to know about the pony, how to approach it and tack it and how to ride it.â&#x20AC;?

It has already been a few weeks since the changes to the garbage and green bin collection schedule took place.

EMC news - Many kids ask for a pony for Christmas, but a lucky few will get to visit ponies every day once a new â&#x20AC;&#x153;pony preschoolâ&#x20AC;? launches in Ottawa South this January. Beatrice dVries, an early childhood educator and therapeutic riding instructor, has partnered with the Greenbelt Riding School on Albion Road to offer full- and parttime preschool spots for kids

I hope that you have had the opportunity to familiarize yourselves with the new collection schedule and that it has been a smooth transition to bi-weekly pick-up. If, however, you do experience problems with the collection schedule, please do not hesitate to contact 311 or www.serviceottawa.ca.

Rideau Street Renewal The renewal work on Rideau Street continues to progress well and the new face of this major downtown artery gradually begins to take shape. As expected, the section between Dalhousie Street and Chapel Street was completed this fall. The second phase of the project â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from Chapel Street to Cummings Bridge â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will begin in 2013. Be assured that we will continue to keep you informed of the progress of the project over the coming months. Please note that in the next few weeks we will receive positive and updated news on the construction of Light Rail Transit in Ottawa.

Nothing was ever cast aside during Depression years

W

inter came early that year. It had been cold and damp, and suddenly the snow came. It was going to be â&#x20AC;&#x153;no ordinary winter,â&#x20AC;? Father said at supper that night. We ďŹ ve children were delighted. That mean snowmen, stamping out big wheels in the yard for a game we played back in the thirties and sleigh rides. Lots of sleigh rides. It also meant snow white ďŹ elds and the ruts in our long lane would be covered and our ďŹ ve-kilometre walk to Northcote school would be easier. It was also the year our two Montreal cousins, Ronny and Terry, were with us. They came in late summer and never went home. The wagon was changed for the big ďŹ&#x201A;at bottomed sleigh, with the one seat in front for Mother and Father, and seven children -- now with the cousins included -- all vying for a spot in the back of the sleigh. The winter had only been with us a few days when a church supper was planned. It would take more than a heavy snow storm to cancel something as exciting as a church supper back then. Father had covered the sleigh with straw and put two bales of hay

MARY COOK Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories close to the seat at the front, where we could sit with our backs against them and our feet stretched out before us. Of course there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough room for seven of us to sit with our backs against the bales, which suited my brothers just ďŹ ne. They would much rather be wrestling and trying to throw each other off into a snow drift. So my sister Audrey, young Terry and me got to sit with our backs to the bales. It was a bitterly cold night for early winter and Mother had heated bricks on the Findlay Oval all afternoon. Audrey, Terry and me were snuggled down under a heavy quilt and the hot bricks, wrapped in several layers of the Renfrew Mercury, were at our feet. Soon the heat from the bricks could be felt right through our galoshes. The supper was at the Lutheran Church and Father was heard to lament that it was full of people from the United Church, who had come for a

free meal. Mother told him to hush up and reminded him we werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t above going to whatever was held at the United Church on many an occasion. By the time the supper was over and the social end of the evening came to a close, it was time to head for home. By this time the bricks were ice cold, but Audrey sat with Terry and me on either side of her, with her arms around us and the blankets right up to our chins. We hardly missed the bricks at all. As always, when we got home, it was my sisterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job to fold up the blankets and take them and the bricks into the shed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bricks are gone,â&#x20AC;? she yelled. Father ran his hands over the straw covered sleigh to make sure they hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been buried in the confusion of settling us down for the trip home. They had mysteriously disappeared. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can be sure one

of the Uniteds took them,â&#x20AC;? Father said. Mother said that was the silliest thing she ever heard of -- stealing bricks. Who would want old bricks when you can get them for a few cents at the brick yard in Renfrew? It was little Terry who, after coming awake, said with a sleepy voice, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know where they are,â&#x20AC;? and then quickly nodded off as he was being carried into the house. Mother gently shook him awake. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Alright Terry. Where are the bricks?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are all along the road. They were cold and no good no more so I throwed them away.â&#x20AC;? We went to church early the next morning. The three brothers walking along the road, looking for and picking up the ďŹ ve or six bricks half hidden in the snowbanks. Even though they cost next to nothing, even a few cents back in those Depression years were not to be casually thrown away on the side of the road and forgotten. Many a time would they be used again that winter and other winters to come. My sister Audrey made awfully sure thereafter that young Terry knew how important the bricks were, even when they lost their heat.

CITY OF OTTAWA

Ready to hit the ice Representatives from the Ottawa Senators Foundation and the city gathered to break ground on a community rink for Jules Morin Park in Lowertown – the first of a eight of community rinks the foundation and city will partner to build. The $250,000 rink will be ready in time for skaters to use is this winter, ahead of completion of a $2.1-million makeover for Jules Morin Park that will be done next spring.

Among those present for the event were foundation representatives, including president Danielle Robinson, second from right, and Mayor Jim Watson, right.

EMC news - With towers popping up across the city, is the condominium bubble about to burst in Ottawa ? The answer at a recent real estate conference was “no.” At the Hampton Inn in Overbrook on Nov. 8, a couple of hundred local real estate professionals responded with confused murmurs when a senior Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation market analyst asked if there are too many condos being built in the city. “The answer is no,” continued Abdul Kargbo of the CMHC. While the supply of condo units for sale has been rising since 2001, the percentage of unsold units has remained flat, Kargbo said, indicating that so far, demand is keeping up with condo construction. Despite heated neighbourhood battles over new condo proposals, the number of buildings under construction is actually going down – and that’s a good thing for the market, Kargbo said. Recently, 2010 was a bumper year for condo construction, with 1,397 units completed. That declined slightly to 1,324 in 2011, and with 948 units completed as of September this year, the numbers are on track for the downward trend to continue. “The growth rate is not going to be as brisk as we’ve seen in the last few years,” Kargbo said, particularly when it comes to prices.

It’s overwhelmingly the 25 to 34 age group that’s driving the demand for condos, he said, because condos or townhomes are the only type of housing many of them can afford as first-time homebuyers. Newcomers to Ottawa usually number around 6,000 a year, and they also drive demand, said Sandra Pérez Torres, another senior market analyst. Migration to the city is expected to peak in 2013, with around 9,000 people expected to move here, she said. Ottawa’s economy will remain relatively strong, despite layoffs in the city’s largest employment sector: the federal public service. “However, uncertainty will keep some potential homebuyers on the sidelines in 2013,” Pérez Torres said. In the past couple of years, condo sales comprised 22 per cent of the city’s real estate market. That will go up slightly to the 2010 level of 24 per cent next year, Kargbo predicted. Still, many new condo units are expensive, so first-time homebuyers have been looking towards condo resales when they’re buying their first property. That demand for lower-priced condos will drive a shift towards fewer high-end buildings and more reasonably priced units, especially downtown and in the west and southeast ends of the city, Kargbo said. Townhomes are becoming increasingly popular in the east as younger people looking to buy property search for something in their price range.

Chili casserole with polenta is tasty, healthy choice EMC lifestyle - In keeping with nutritional guidelines, this chili has a healthful proportion of vegetables to meat, yet it’s every bit as satisfying and flavorful as traditional chili con carne. Chili may be frozen in individual portions for reheating in the microwave. Transfer thawed chili to bowl and top with polenta wedge. Microwave at medium-high (70 per cent) power for two minutes, then at high for two minutes or until heated through. Preparation time: 30 minutes Cooking time: two hours and 15 minutes Servings: six INGREDIENTS

A crafty good time The sixth annual One & Only craft sale on Nov. 18 welcomes 60 local artists and more than 1,000 visitors to the Sandy Hill Community Centre. From left, Marc Lacelle, organizer, and head chef Peter Evanchuck, Hélene Lacelle, Dallas Fletcher and Action Sandy Hill board member Francois Bregha cook up a free buffet for the event.

• 1 lb (454 g) lean beef • 2 tbsp (25 ml) all-purpose flour • salt and pepper • 4 tsp (20 ml) vegetable oil • 2 cups (500 ml) coarsely chopped onion • 2 cloves garlic, minced • 1 small sweet red pepper, seeded and chopped • 1 cup (250 ml) finely diced carrots • 1 cup (250 ml) coarsely chopped cabbage • 2 tbsp (25 ml) chili powder • 1 tsp (5 ml) dried oregano • 1/4 tsp (1 ml) each cinnamon and red pepper flakes • 1 can (796 ml) whole tomatoes

• 1 can (398 ml) fancy red kidney beans, drained • polenta (recipe follows) POLENTA

• 3 cups (750 mL) water • 3/4 cup (175 mL) cornmeal • 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt PREPARATION

Trim away any fat and cut the beef into 2.5 centimetre pieces. In shallow dish, season the flour with salt and pepper. Add the beef and toss until flour is taken up, then set aside. In large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the oil over medium heat. Cook the onions, garlic and red pepper, stirring, until onions are translucent. Add the carrots and cabbage and cook, stirring, for two minutes. Transfer to 2.5 litre casserole dish; stir in chili powder, oregano, cinnamon and red pepper flakes. Set aside. Heat the remaining oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook meat in batches, turning to brown on all sides, and then add it to the casserole. Break up the tomatoes and stir them into the casserole. Cover and bake in an oven heated to 325 F (160 C) for 1.5 hours or until meat is tender, stirring twice during cooking. Taste and season with salt, if

required, and pepper. Stir in the beans. The recipe can be prepared to this point, cooled, covered and refrigerated for up to two days or frozen. Thaw overnight in refrigerator before continuing and increase final cooking time by 10 minutes. Cut the polenta into wedges; arrange on top of chili. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the polenta is a light golden brown colour on top. POLENTA: In small saucepan, combine water, cornmeal, butter and salt. Let it stand for 10 minutes. Bring to boil, stirring constantly, then reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring frequently, for 12 to 15 minutes or until spoon drawn through mixture leaves a line. Pour into nonstick 1.2 L round cake pan. Let cool and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or when completely cold, cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days. NOTE: Microwave recipes tested in a 700-watt microwave oven. Power level terminology in microwave ovens varies; check your owner’s manual and use whichever word or number gives you the same percentages as in the recipe (High is always 100%). If your oven differs, cooking times may vary. Foodland Ontario

IF YOU WORK IN ONTARIO, THIS IS YOUR FIGHT. On September 11, 2012, the Ontario Liberal government passed Bill 115, the Putting Students First Act, 2012.

Bill 115 is undemocratic, unconstitutional, and unprecedented. sIt takes away the democratic rights of teachers and education professionals to bargain collectively. sIt places the government beyond the reach of the Ontario Human Rights Code, the Ontario Labour Relations Act, and even the courts. sIt takes local decision-making away from school boards and puts it in the hands of the provincial government. That’s why we’re standing against Bill 115. It sets a dangerous precedent for all Ontarians. In fact, the government has already threatened other public sector workers with similar legislation. As teachers, we teach your children to stand up for their principles. Today, we ask you to do the same.

What can you do to help? Join us in standing up for democratic rights. Let your MPP know that Bill 115 must be repealed.

Orléans brothers set for cross-Canada Christmas tour Brothers Dubé to play 40 shows in two weeks Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

Rob. “I have no doubt he thinks it’s funny.” But Rob said they can’t complain too much – the show lasts about 30 minutes and then they’re bundle up and shipped off to the next destination. The great outdoors is familiar to the boys as they have been known to do some busking in the Ottawa area. “They’d just busk in the streets in the dead of winter,” Rob said, about the first fundraising efforts of the band. The Brothers Dubé originally started performing to raise money for cancer, after their mother passed away several years ago. Now, they fundraise for a variety of charities, including the food bank during the railroad’s Christmas tour. Smaller communities often turn out big crowds to see the free shows. “Last year in Oshawa, there were 10,000 people,” said Liam. “And Smiths Falls is always big. It’s usually bigger in the smaller communities.” Eventually, the boys hope to join the tour all the way out to British Columbia. But seeing Canada via train, from old Victorian sleeper cars, has already been quite an experience. “I like airplanes, but trains are awesome. They’re better,” Quinn said. “It’s exciting for me to go on trains.” The tour kicks off on Nov. 28, and will be in Smiths Falls on Nov. 29 at 8:15 p.m.

SUBMITTED

The Brothers Dubé perform during a tour stop on the CP Holiday Train Tour last year. They are back on the tour this year and have increased the number of shows they will play to 40.

R0011769119

EMC entertainment - It’ll be a taste of life as professional musicians for the Brothers Dubé as they set off to perform in 40 shows in two weeks as a part of the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train tour. They’ll hop on the train in Beaconsfield, Que. and spend two weeks aboard, finally stepping of in Whitemouth, Man. The train will continue west with other entertainers aboard. It’s the brothers third year doing the tour, travelling further every year. Last year, they got off the train in Sudbury after a week on the tracks. “The holiday train is always something that we look forward to,” said Jan Dubé. “It’s like our Christmas gift. It’s our holiday for the year.” Jan, 13, will be joined by his older brother Liam, 15, and younger brother Quinn, who will turn 12 on Dec. 3, while on the train – with dad, Rob, along to chaperone. The brothers will be part of a big-name lineup: Doc Walker, a country group, will board the train in Whitemouth, while Kingston, Ont. artist Miss Em-

ily will be on the entire tour. The boys play up to seven shows a day while on tour, Rob said. They volunteer to play the tour, helping present donations from CP Rail to food banks in the communities where they stop, donating a portion of album sales and encouraging concert-goers to donate food items. They’re the house band for the tour, learning the arrangements of the Christmas songs they’ll be playing. “We will be playing some different versions of Christmas songs; just basically rock it out,” Jan said. “It’s a big woo-hoo for us.” They have to practise the assigned songs for several months and work multiple shows a day, diving right into the lives of full-time musicians. The train has a specific car, with doors that open up to create the stage where the artists appear at each train station across Canada. “The show’s going to be pretty awesome because when I’m playing with my brothers, those guys are out in the cold while I’m inside playing the drums with the heaters right beside me,” said Quinn. Both Liam and Jan said playing guitar and bass strings in the cold is the only drawback to the tour. “It’s freezing and Quinn gets to sit in there; he can drum with gloves on,” said

Jewish community school students flex math muscles steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - The secondďŹ&#x201A;oor computer lab at the Ottawa Jewish Community School looked more like NASAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ground control last week, as students took part in a countrywide online math competition. Kids from grades 2 to 7 classes joined 17,000 Canadian students involved in the Maple Leaf Math Challenge, a two-day competition where students must master 50 math concepts before competing in speed drills. Due to the nature of the online program, each student is able to monitor their own progress and the ranking of their school in real time, making for a dynamic, exciting

learning experience. The event is a popular one at the school, with six students entering the top 100 in Canada last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such a focus on math in this school â&#x20AC;&#x201C; our kids really look forward to this,â&#x20AC;? said registrar Sara-Lynne Levine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You see a lot of camaraderie. The kids root each other on.â&#x20AC;? Despite the speed and number of participants in the challenge, taking part is an easy task. You simply log on, sign in for your grade, choose your desired level of difďŹ culty and start competing. However, unlike sporting events, students arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t vying for medals or a cup. A certiďŹ cate and sense of accomplishment is the reward for good work here. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about the intrinsic satis-

faction,â&#x20AC;? said Beata Myhill, the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s math coach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The kids can compete at whatever level theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re comfortable with.â&#x20AC;? While the students are clearly having fun competing, especially in the speed drills, the knowledge reinforced through this kind of process will be invaluable later in life. The computer program is used throughout the year in a classroom setting to complement the existing curriculum and is even made available to students for learning at home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Parents can choose to purchase participation in this program,â&#x20AC;? said Myhill, who is a publisher of the Nelson Math Program â&#x20AC;&#x201C;an educational tool adopted by many educational institutions. The beneďŹ ts of this kind of

use,â&#x20AC;? said Levine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great add-on to our math program. The individualization is a beneďŹ t to teachers as well. Tt allows them to adapt the curriculum to the studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favoured way of learning.â&#x20AC;? Participants in the math challenge will have to wait G%%&&'.'.(,

two weeks for ofďŹ cial results, though the nature of the computer program produces the unofďŹ cial results almost immediately. Regardless of each studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s individual ranking, the experience of participating â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the fun, friendship and learning â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is a reward in itself.

Students ineligible for some sports under new rule Half of Louis Riel sports study students would have to quit playing for school teams Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC sports - A new rule introduced by the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high school sports umbrella group could jeopardize an Orleans high schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to ďŹ eld teams. The rule will prevent students enrolled in a sports study program from outside the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boundaries from playing on their schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team in that sport. If the sports study student specializes in soccer, for example, he or she canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play for the school soccer team. The decision was made by the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations and will be phased in over four years starting next September. Current students will follow the rules in place when they started at the school in a grandfathering arrangement. More than half of Grade 9 students who will enroll in Louis Riel high schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sport study program next year will be affected by the rule. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When (parents) registered here, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because they want to give their children the best program available,â&#x20AC;? said Louis Riel principal Claude Pierre

Louis. OFSAA executive director Doug Gellatly said the rule was introduced to balance competition between schools with sports programs and regular schools. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The regulation was adopted to address the distinct nature of sport schools and the competitive advantage that such schools have over other schools,â&#x20AC;? said Gellatly in an email. Louis Riel, a small school with just under 500 students, ďŹ elds competitive teams in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high school sports league. Because of the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relatively small student population, the Louis Riel teams should compete in A-level competitions, but regularly move up to the AA- or AAA-level divisions to play much larger schools, said the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s athletic director JoĂŠ Fournier. Pierre Louis said the school does that to avoid an â&#x20AC;&#x153;imbalance,â&#x20AC;? or mismatch that could see Louis Rielâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teams dominate schools with similar student populations. There are four French public schools in Ottawa with speciďŹ c focuses of study. While GiseleLalonde runs the international

Jonathan Rioux, 12, from Casselman, takes part in a soccer session at Louis Riel public school. The Grade 7 student attends Louis Riel for the exploratory sports study program for soccer. Under a new rule set to start next year, he would be ineligible to play soccer for the school once he starts Grade 9. baccalaureate program for example, Louis Riel specializes in sport study. The school board encourages students to choose the school that is the best ďŹ t for their interests, not speciďŹ cally the closest school for them, said school board media spokesperson Marilyne Guèvremont. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because we only have four high schools, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really

PET OF THE WEEK

have boundaries,â&#x20AC;? Guèvremont said. She said the Ministry of Education encourages boards to develop specialties within schools â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but this new rule doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t support what they have been encouraged to develop. There are 195 students in the Grade 9 to 12 sport study program; 100 of them live out of boundary.

If this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 22 sport study soccer students from outside the boundary were banned from competing in soccer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a reality the school could end up with in four years, after the rule is fully grandfathered in â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ďŹ elding a competitive team would be nearly impossible. But there are additional students who chose to attend Louis Riel from outside the boundary and compete on sports teams without being part of the sport study program. They would have to identify their primary sport, even though not in sport study â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play on the sanctioned sports teams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If out-of-boundary kids are not allowed to compete, the teams are in jeopardy,â&#x20AC;? Fournier said. Students in the sports study program have a modiďŹ ed day, which includes ďŹ tness or sport training, while completing all the required class hours. Teachers are also ďŹ&#x201A;exible with students who may need to catch up on missed classes for competitions or training sessions outside of school. OFSAA is more important in certain sports. University recruiters for track and ďŹ eld athletes often use the provincial event as a chance to recruit and look for results when comparing potential athletes head to head. For other students, sports

leagues an important part of being a teenager. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To get to play with their friends; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of the high school experience,â&#x20AC;? Fournier said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t treat them like theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re adults in professional leagues.â&#x20AC;? At a parent meeting at the end of October, the school boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawyer recommended parents of Grade 7 and 8 students ďŹ le complaints on behalf of their children with the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal, Guèvremont said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just feel that it would be inequitable if they register and all of a sudden theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ineligible,â&#x20AC;? said Pierre Louis. He said there are parents planning to ďŹ le complaints, and are looking to the school for guidance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope at the end itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be a favourable outcome and permit them to compete,â&#x20AC;? said Pierre Louis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And other means will be taken by OFSAA to address the perceived imbalance between teams. We already addressed this issue by playing at a higher level.â&#x20AC;? Private schools would only have the boundaries enforced if they met the deďŹ nition of a sport school. To be a sport school, they have to offer ďŹ&#x201A;exible or modiďŹ ed timetables or admit athletes due to athletics, and require them to take additional credits in heath and physical education.

Professional basketball coming to Ottawa Blair Edwards blair.edwards@metroland.com

EMC sports - A deal bringing professional basketball to Ottawa is a slam dunk for the city, said the owner of the National Basketball League of Canada’s newest team. Gus Takkale, a 38-year-old Orléans business man and motivational speaker, announced that fans will be able to attend their first game at Scotiabank Place in Kanata sometime in September or October of 2013. “This is electrifying, driveto-the-net, in your face, slamdunk ball,” said Takkale during a press conference today, Nov. 21, at Scotiabank Place, the home court of the yet-tobe named team. Takkale is inviting fans to submit suggestions for the team’s name. The franchise will announce the team’s name by the end of 2012 and unveil the team’s logo and main sponsorship by the end of February

2013. It will hire a coach in the spring and start picking up free agents and draft players in the summer. The team will have a 12man roster and a salary cap of $150,000. Ticket prices haven’t been set yet, but should range between $20 to $95 for upperlevel to courtside seats, said Takkale, who hopes to attract between 3,500 and 8,000 fans to each home game. “We are ecstatic to be able to bring our brand of ball to Ottawa,” said Ian McCarthy, the founder of the eight-team league, which currently has clubs in Halifax, N.S.; Saint John and Moncton, N.B.; Summerside, P.E.I.; Montreal; as well as Oshawa, London and Windsor, Ont. Mayor Jim Watson welcomed the new basketball franchise to the city. “A professional basketball team is a great way to build civic pride,” said Watson. “I’m confident that Ottawans have a passion for basketball.”

EMC sports – Four-time water polo Olympian and longtime coach David Hart has been honoured with a major national award by the Coaching Association of Canada. The 60-year-old former Alta Vista resident was presented with the Geoff Gowan award for his lifetime contribution to coaching development on Nov. 12. “I was really honoured and of course quite proud to be chosen,” said Hart. “I was judged against other outstanding candidates from both summer and winter Olympic sports so the scope of the award is very significant indeed.” Still a talent scout and mentor for the national men’s and women’s water polo teams, Hart said it was hard to put into words how special the award was to him. “I think it is a big feather in the cap for Water Polo Canada,” said Hart. Hart’s career as an athlete, coach and leader in the sport of water polo is the most extensive of any Canadian in the history of the sport, according to his biography. “I have been a constant figure within the national and international scene 1969 to present day,” said Hart. As a player, Hart spent eight years on the men’s national team and was co-captain at the 1976 Olympic Summer Games in Montreal. “At my age it is a time of reflection on my career and beginning to realize that many or most of my achievements are behind me and wondering

David Hart was recently presented with the Geoff Gowan award for coaching water polo. what kind of an impact I may have had over the years,” he said. Hart started his water polo career in 1965 as a high school player, joined the national men’s team in 1969 and retired after the 1976 Olympics. He immediately became a professional coach, a job he has held to this day. “Coaching for me is like parenting; it’s a long-term project,” said Hart. “With your athletes in mind, you need to have the mindset to manage the demands and expectations of the present while preparing for the future.” That coaching career has made him the only Canadian to have worked with all six Canadian national team programs and the only one to have coached a foreign national water polo team. As a coach, Hart won eight international medals, four national championships with the Hamilton Aquatic Club in the early to mid 1970s, and has coached in the Ottawa area for more than three decades since

then. He also coached the national team in two Olympics. From 2002 to 2003, Hart was the head coach of the Brazilian women’s team. “The opportunity to become the first and only Canadian water polo personality to coach a foreign national team was quite an experience,” Hart said. “I learned to speak Portuguese and made many great friends there.” He helped the Brazilian team win a bronze medal at the 2003 Pan American Games. “That was terrific as well,” he said. Hart said water polo has had a profound effect upon him and has made him grow as an individual. “I calculated recently that I must have signed somewhere between 30 and 35 one-year contracts over my career,” he said. “In theory I had no security in my career, but I feel that the quality of my work and my passion were my security. It turns out this was the case.” According to Ahmed ElAwadi, executive director of Water Polo Canada, Hart’s impact on water polo in Canada is unparalleled. “The sport is light years ahead of where it was back in the 1960s and 1970s. We simply could not have progressed this far without David Hart’s vision and leadership and, most of all, his infectious passion for the game.” Even with all those accomplishments, Hart doesn’t feel there is any one moment that is more important than another. “I had so many great moments as an athlete and coach and of course there were disappointments and regrets too,” he said.
