EMC news - Despite expressions of anger and regret over a secret deal struck between a group of developers and the Centretown community association, the mood at an April 23 community design plan meeting was civil. The Centretown Citizens Community Association called the 11th-hour meeting to seek public comment on the deal struck by its board. The choice put to community members basically boiled down to whether people favoured the community design plan supported by city staff or the deal reached between a group of developers and the Centretown community association’s board. Reasoned arguments were made on both sides, with community association planning committee member Debby Hanscom lamenting the negotiations that even she was left out of, and community association board member Brian Bourne defending the board’s deal with developers.

Children in Sandy Hill take a practice run at leading a walk for this May 5 Jane’s Walk. This photo taken by a child was part of the inspiration behind a plan that will see three eight-year-old children will lead a walk through the neighbourhood for other kids and their parents.

Children to lead charge during urban walk Sandy Hill walking tour to inspire imaginations Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - A group of young, imaginative minds would like to welcome other youthful urbanites to go for a walk around Sandy Hill this weekend. Jane’s Walk is set to take place all over the city on May 4 and 5, and in Sandy Hill a trio of eight-year-old tour guides will be leading the way.

“This is a chance to see the neighbourhood through the eyes of a child,” said Sandra MacPherson, a co-ordinator for Ottawa’s Jane’s Walk. This children’s walk will be the first of its kind for the Ottawa Jane’s Walk. MacPherson said she came up with the idea to present a walk where anything goes, imagination is welcome and inquiring minds are encouraged. “This walk is about the sim-

pler things that most of us just walk by and don’t see,” she said. “To me all rocks kind of look the same, but kids see the detail, and they say, ‘No, this rock is different.’ ... It makes you realize that there is complexity in nature that is fascinating and to me that is what Jane’s Walk is all about.” The annual event takes place in cities all over the world and is named after writer and urban activist Jane Jacobs. The walks are typically held on the first weekend of May to coincide with Jacobs’s birthday.

The walks are led by volunteers and, like the walk that is taking place in Sandy Hill, can focus on just about anything. The mother of one of the eight-year-old tour guides and a PhD student studying the impact of urban literature, MacPherson said she wanted to create a walk that included young children and promoted urban living. With that idea in mind, she approached her daughter’s daycare, Bettye Hyde, for support. See VANIER, page 12

EMC news - Vanier residents voiced concerns about garbage collection, development, parks and safety at a recent forum hosted by the ward councillor recently. The event, held at Assumption Catholic School, provided residents the opportunity to meet with RideauVanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury to discuss issues and raise concerns about their community. The councillor provided an update on recent city activities before inviting questions from those gathered at the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I might not have every answer, but I will follow up with you,â&#x20AC;? Fleury said at the start of the meeting. The Vanier Community Association hosted the event, which saw about 40 residents attend. Fleury presented updates on

changes to rules governing derelict properties, construction of the lightrail system, renovations at the Rideau Centre, the reconstruction of Rideau Street and the future of the ByWard Market. Afterwards, the councillor opened up the floor to residents, who had a lot to say about garbage including concerns about collection, residents putting waste to the curb too early and about the number of bags homes can place for pickup. The councillor advised residents to communicate with his office directly about such concerns. One resident raised the issue of increased street parking on the blocks immediately east and west of Montreal Road. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of the parking in this city doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make sense,â&#x20AC;? Fleury said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to revisit the parking policy, but on a small scale we can address your concerns.â&#x20AC;? The main message the councillor wanted to convey was for residents to know his door is always open and that he and his staff are there to help. Residents can contact the councillor at 613-580-2482 or by email at mathieu.fleury@ottawa.ca.

Correction In an April 18 editorial regarding Department of National Defence jobs moving from OrlĂŠans, the Ottawa East News stated, â&#x20AC;&#x153;there is no way for (Ottawa-OrlĂŠans MPP Phil) McNeely to know how many of the affected employees currently live in OrlĂŠans, or where they would prefer to live.â&#x20AC;? In fact, McNeely has received federal numbers that show there were 2,722 civilian employees, 1,412 regular forceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s employees and 472 reserve force personel who live in OrlĂŠans. The Ottawa East News maintains that no one knows where those employees would prefer to live. The Ottawa East News regrets the error.

Centre offers creative way to donate Stake campaign lets community members decorate fence Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

NEW & USED HOME FURNISHINGS

decorate for less!

MICHELLE NASH/METROLAND

Executive director Melanie Davis, left, and programming manager Sue Hall shows off some of the decorated stakes residents have created for the New Edinburgh Community and Arts Centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fundraising campaign, Buy a Stake. The centre is hoping to raise $15,000 from the campaign to update the facility in order to meet current building and ďŹ re codes. The building where the community centre is currently operating was purchased in September 2011. Since the non-proďŹ t organization moved in, the group has launched new programming for the New Edinburgh community, but the facility itself must be upgraded. The centre must have a ďŹ re exit on each ďŹ&#x201A;oor of the threestorey building. In addition the

group aims to make the ďŹ rst ďŹ&#x201A;oor wheelchair accessible. Davis said she decided to launch this creative fundraiser as a way to generate community involvement, raise much needed funds and add some artistic ďŹ&#x201A;air to the outside of the building. The fence will frame the property and so far it is shaping up to be a unique mix of colours, ideas, images and concepts. Davis said really, when it comes to the design, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s choice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a way to draw attention to the fact this is a community and art centre,â&#x20AC;? Davis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;New Ed-

inburgh is a creative community and we felt this was a great way to show that.â&#x20AC;? To purchase a stake in person or over the phone, Davis said to call the centre at 613-745-2742. Purchased stakes must be returned by May 25, when they will be coated with sealant and then built into the fence. The complete fence will be revealed on June 1, when the centre participates in Doors Open Ottawa, with a community event in the front yard. Please visit www.nectarcentre.ca for more information.

EMC news - The New Edinburgh Community and Arts Centre has launched a campaign to spark some creativity and raise much-needed funds into the nonproďŹ t organization. The centre launched its Buy a Stake campaign at the beginning of February to encourage community members to get creative and design one stake for a fence at the centre that will be built in June. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are inviting the community to make this centre their own,â&#x20AC;? said Melanie Davis, the centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive director. The cedar stakes are $50, for which the centre will issue a charitable receipt for $40. Davis said the centre has been hosting decorating parties, where those who have purchased a stake can personalize their own piece of the fence. Otherwise, the donors can take them home to decorate or commission one of the centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s artists to get creative on their behalf. Acrylic, oil or exterior house paint is recommended and the next decorating party is planned for May 25 from 1 to 4 p.m.

Residents demand rail on Carling

Ottawa Centre

Helping Protect Our Community’s Most Vulnerable Seniors -By Yasir Naqvi, MPP The new Ontario government is helping keep seniors and people with dementia safe by ensuring their families, caregivers and the community are prepared to act in case they go missing. Currently, almost 200,000 Ontarians have dementia. This is an increase of 16 per cent over the past four years, and by 2020 close to 250,000 seniors in Ontario will be living with some form of dementia. As the number of people with dementia rises, so too does the risks associated with missing incidents. Three out of five people with dementia go missing at some point, often without warning, and 94 per cent of seniors who go missing are found within 2.5 kilometers from where they disappeared. Sadly, 50 per cent of seniors missing for 24 hours or more, risk serious injury or death from exposure to the elements, hypothermia and drowning. The risks of people going missing are greater when the community, caregivers or people with dementia themselves are unaware of the potentially severe consequences. Preparation and planning are crucial to prevent people with dementia from going missing, and to ensure they are found safely and quickly. Currently, there is a very low awareness of missing incidents in our communities and many people do not know where to seek help. This is why, with support from our government, the Alzheimer Society of Ontario is launching the new Finding Your Way Wandering Prevention Program. The first of its kind in Canada, the program will raise awareness of risks for people with dementia and enhance the community response in case they go missing. As part of the program, the Alzheimer Society of Ontario will distribute kits that include tips and resources to help families and caregivers put plans in place to prevent wandering incidents and act quickly in cases of missing seniors. They will include an identification form with space for a recent photo and physical description that can be shared with police in an emergency, at-home safety steps to help prevent wandering incidents, and tips on what to do when a person with dementia goes missing and when reuniting after a wandering incident.

Saving Byron Linear Park not enough – move rail south, residents tell city Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Carling Avenue boosters came out in force at a city meeting to discuss routes to take light rail west from Tunney’s Pasture to Baseline Station. But running rapid rail transit down Carling Avenue is off the table, said transportation committee chairman Keith Egli. That comment was met with shouts of derision and participants saw exiting the city-hall meeting. The meeting stretched late into the evening as speakers who stood up from among a crowd of around 300 people took turns deriding the process that led to them being blindsided by the city concluding it prefers one of the 15 routes it originally began studying. The chosen route – coined the Richmond Underground – would skirt along the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway before reaching a new, above-ground station at Cleary Avenue and then dipping underground. The line, which wouldn’t be built for another decade, would continue under Richmond Road until just before Lincoln

Fields, where the Sir. John A. Macdonald Parkway and existing Transitway meet Richmond Road. The route was chosen as an “elegant solution” to address concerns raised by the community and National Capital Commission last year, including a desire to preserve the Byron Linear Park and access to green space along the parkway. City staff struggled to explain the concept of putting a secondary transit line on Carling in the future – something like a tram that would be slower and have more frequent stops. The route to the north would be a rapid line mainly serving commuters, although it would provide two new local stations: one at Cleary and another at New Orchard. Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs, whose ward includes a portion of the line, said she doesn’t support a route that runs down Carling. “I don’t want to do that to you,” she said, adding that cutting off communities in her ward from the benefits of a light-rail line would be detrimental. Negative exclamations about a lack of political representation in response to Hobbs’ statement didn’t sway the councillor’s

sentiment, but she said there are 24 councillors who will jointly make the decision of which route to choose. Bay Coun. Mark Taylor, whose ward would contain a large section of the western LRT extension, said he was council’s biggest Carling booster last summer – but not anymore. “I wish they could have found a way to connect (Carling),” Taylor said. From both a financial perspective and an engineering perspective, Carling isn’t a feasible route to run rapid rail. The preferred Richmond underground route would cost an estimated $900 million. The Carling option would be the most expensive of all the studied routes at $2.3 billion. Those numbers could all change by as much as 25 per cent by the time the rail line might actually be constructed. “Carling compromises the overall (transit) network,” said Nancy Schepers, the deputy city manager in charge of overseeing transportation matters, adding “(it) is not a good transit solution for the future of the city.” It would mean that buses would still have to run on the parkway to serve the communities to the north, it would eliminate the option of extending light rail over the Prince of Wales Bridge and it would force riders to have more transfers by cutting off the O-Train at Car-

ling, Schepers said. “Carling is off the table,” said transportation committee chairman Keith Egli. Residents at the meeting weren’t having it. “Does it not make sense to have the train going through the centre of gravity of the city?” said one man. “No one lives in the river.” Others said it doesn’t make sense to ignore people to the south. One man who said he lived on Carling said he would love to have the rapid transit line run there. Shortly after a technical briefing on April 22 to update councillors and the media on the preferred route, National Capital Commission chairman Russell Mills sent out a media release stating the commission is still opposed to any route that runs rail on the parkway. The Richmond Underground as proposed would “kiss” the parkway, Schepers said. Putting that portion underground at Rochester Field would obviously increase the cost. What followed became a back-and-forth between Mills and Mayor Jim Watson. Mills indicated the NCC’s board was caught off guard by the city’s assertion that one option has been chosen as the preferred route, while Watson maintained he had made it clear during a meeting with the NCC two weeks ago.

Plans to update Rideau Centre facade OKed by NCC Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - The National Capital Commission has given the green light to plans that will see an update to the facade of the Rideau Centre. Cadillac Fairview, owner of the downtown shopping centre, has proposed changes that will affect the facade on portions of Rideau Street, Colonel By Drive, Nicholas Street and McKenzie King Bridge. Christopher Hoyt, the senior architect overseeing the project, presented the recommendations to the NCC board at a recent meeting. The presentation included preliminary images of revamped Rideau Street and Mackenzie King entrances, an updated pedestrian bridge between the shopping centre and the Hudson’s Bay store on the opposite side of Rideau, and a new garage entrance on Nicholas Street. The commission does not own the land, but a restrictive covenant was part of the 1981 sale to then-owners of the property, the Viking Rideau Corporation. which states any alterations to the exterior or new structures built are subject to the approval of the NCC. The covenant affects the facade along Rideau Street and Sussex Avenue, Colonel By Drive, portions of Nicholas Street, portions of Mackenzie King Bridge and the rooftop terrace near Mackenzie King Bridge.

Hoyt said signage for the building was not approved and would need to be discussed at a later meeting. The proposed plans were well received by the NCC board and were unanimously approved. The board, however, did consider whether the roof-top terrace needed to remain as a NCC-operated property. Fred Gaspere, director of federal approvals and environmental management for the NCC, said commission staff have recommended the mall owner take over responsibility for the terrace. “I can confirm that we would like to have a discussion with them about the entire project, including the rooftop terrace,” he said. “Absolutely we have put it to the centre.” Board member Jason Sordi expressed reservations about the current state of Rideau Street, concerned that if hoarding is placed along the street during construction, it could provide more places for people to hide or make the street more unsavory then it already is. Board member Kay Stanley said she was intrigued by the project and felt that as the renovations move forward, some concerns about safety and pedestrian use Rideau Street will improve. The board approved the preliminary designs with the following conditions

SUBMITTED

The National Capital Commission has approved preliminary designs submitted by Cadillac Fairview to renovate the Rideau Centre. Changes include new front entrances on Rideau Street and Mackenzie King Bridge. • That the west elevation of the project at Colonel By Drive be developed further and in accordance with upcoming NCC guidelines for naming and signage and that drawings for this elevation be reviewed by the NCC for approval. • That Cadillac Fairview provide a detailed construction schedule for the project to the NCC for review.

• That the roof terrace plans and detailed design be provided to the NCC for review. • That the building design and construction drawings, specifications, and material samples as pertaining to roofscape, building envelope, site and landscape development be provided to the NCC for review for major drawing issues.

• That the property owner obtain for permission to alter The Transportation building, also known as 10 Rideau St., prior to any construction under the terms of the Ontario Heritage Act. • That the Parks Canada standards and guidelines be respected as they pertain to development along the Rideau Canal World Heritage Site.

Time for a real transit plan

I

s a comprehensive transit plan too much for residents on both sides of the Ottawa River to ask for? Over the past few weeks, it has become clear that we don’t have a cohesive plan to direct the expansion of public transit services in the capital region. The National Capital Commission and the City of Ottawa are at odds on a pair of issues, namely a regional transit plan commissioned by those two organizations and the city of Gatineau and the preferred route for the western branch this city’s light rail system. For better or worse, Ottawa and Gatineau sit on opposite banks of what has long been Canada’s great divide. Despite those linguistic, cultural and political differences, people cross that divide on a regular basis to work, play or otherwise live their lives. This means leaders of both cities and the NCC, representing the federal government, need to consider how transit will evolve not only in Ottawa or Gatineau, but across the whole region. For example, the city’s transit commission chairwoman Diane Deans rejected the findings of a regional plan because it didn’t align with goals for transit in Ottawa. Was this because it sought to

envision something bigger than just the needs of this city? Did it dare to think of the capital as something more than just those living on the south side of the river? But then during discussions surrounding the western route of the LRT, maintaining the Prince of Wales Bridge as a potential interprovincial transit crossing was referenced as reason to reject using Carling Avenue for light rail. So then is regional transit planning important after all? These questions make one wonder if the western LRT considerations are being made in isolation, or if they truly are part of a larger plan. If they are part of such a plan, what is it? Does the NCC know what those plans are? Does Gatineau? As veterans of the eastern interprovincial bridge saga can surely attest, decision making across the provincial divide is anything but easy, but are necessary in order to make effective decisions about how to spend billions of dollars and that affect more than a million people. Let’s not make decisions in isolation. Let’s keep lines of communication open. It may not be easy, but it’s the only way the cities of Ottawa and Gatineau and the NCC can deliver the kind of public transit the capital region deserves.

We’re not exactly digging a tunnel of love

T

here is no progress without heartbreak. Or, as they used to say on the left, you can’t make an omelet without breaking eggs. In this respect, it’s intriguing to see how many different perspectives there can be on one project. A guy was complaining on the radio the other day, a guy who probably doesn’t live too far from me, about the west-end LRT route that has been proposed by city planners. The route goes beside the parkway, then up to the Richmond-Byron corridor, where it tunnels underground and emerges somewhere around Lincoln Fields. This was going to be awful, the guy said, in effect. Get ready for the lawsuits. I didn’t catch exactly where the guy lives, but I can feel his pain. I live a few blocks from where some of the work will being done and my feelings, while less intense, are certainly mixed. Which is the way it goes with projects of this magnitude. On the one hand, looking at the big picture: I’m glad that there is going to be more light rail. The city needs it. How many of us have just about stopped going downtown because parking and traffic are so difficult? I can see a day when I can walk a few blocks

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town and hop on the train downtown. It’s hard not to like that. On the other hand, this thing isn’t going to be complete for 10 years. How many of those years will feature noisy digging and blasting, dust and smoke, closing off of streets and general inconvenience? From where I sit, it could mean having to take a slightly different route home; from where somebody else sits – perhaps the guy on the radio – it could mean years of real discomfort. It’s very nice that the proposed plan will save the Richmond-Byron Linear Park by tunneling under it, but first that tunnel has to be made. If you’re sitting right next to it, it may be a bit harder to appreciate the joys of expanded public transit. Similarly, if you’re on the north side of Published weekly by:

Richmond Road and accustomed to a nice view across the parkway to the river, it may not please you to know that trains will be coming along. And if you’re used to walking or biking along one of the paths beside the parkway, you may not be pleased at the thought it might disappear and be replaced by tracks. To dismiss such concerns at NIMBYism is unfair. NIMBYism is when you object to a proposed group home on your street – or someone else’s street. Being concerned about a tunnel being dug in front of your home is something else, as is being concerned about a 19-story condo going up beside you. Of course that’s one of the other perspectives on this particular transit project. Proximity to light rail makes an area attractive to developers, as if Richmond Road wasn’t attractive enough already. So with the light rail come more 19-story towers. The character of the neighbourhood changes – for the better, say the planners. Maybe not, say the neighbours. Still, it could have been worse, couldn’t it? The whole linear park could have been torn up. The parkway could have been given over to light rail, making the National Capital Commission sad.

Managing change is not easy for anyone. Imagine what it must have been like to live near the Queensway as it was being built in the late ’50s and early ’60s. That would have been serious noise. Then, just for fun, imagine what would have happened had opponents of the project won the day. Let’s see. No quick way into town from the suburbs. People who worked downtown would have to live downtown. Rapid transit would be a low priority. And no one would be arguing today about a tunnel along Byron. Sorry if that ruined your day.

Farmers’ Market to open May 5 EMC news - We are counting down the days until the opening of the 8th Season of the Ottawa Farmers’ Market on May 5 at Brewer Park. After an extended winter, the offering of fresh local spring vegetables and the return to our vibrant outdoor venues will be ever so sweet. In just eight years, the market has grown tremendously with the support of the community. As we prepare to open our outdoor markets, we are also looking to extend our mar-

ket into the winter. Our farmers have been increasing their growing capacity, but have few options for selling local produce meats and cheeses when the weather turns cold. For now, we celebrate the warm weather, and the fresh spring produce and green grass it brings to the opening of our Brewer Park Market. Join us as we celebrate the start of the season with more than 100 vendors of local produce, maple syrup, honey, meats, cheeses, baked goods and high quality crafts produced within 100 kilometres of Ottawa.

Hope.

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse mothers, in particular (sorry, fellow mothers), are so busy much of the time that we’re actually missing the moments we’ve vowed to appreciate. In fairness, we have limited hours in the day to socialize with kids, while also trying to feed them, discipline them and run them from one activity to another. (To parents of pre-school kids, you’ll be more – not less – busy as the children age, believe it or not). But perhaps the biggest culprit is technology. As I noted in a recent column, I don’t have an iPad or a smartphone, so I’m probably using technology less than some – but I do like to text, use Facebook and send emails when it’s more convenient than making a phone call. Unfortunately these com-

munication tools are making it increasingly difficult to communicate with those actually within my physical space. So I’ve decided to be more present. It’s not easy. But here’s what I’m trying: when the kids get off the school bus, even if I’m mid-text, I just hit send and pocket the phone. (This has caused confusion among friends and colleagues). When we get inside, I get discipline out of the way first by ordering them to do three things: wash hands, put away lunchboxes, and “be loving and helpful.” The latter saves me time later because I go on to repeat, “are we being loving right now?” over and over again to break up fights, encourage the children to set the table, etc. (You know, the kind of stuff that will land them in the psychologist’s

chair when they’re adults). I sit and talk with them while they have a snack. I ask them about their days. They ask about mine. I give them encouragement with homework (rather than defensively yelling at them continuously to “sit down and do it,” while I’m trying to send a work-related text). We’ve started reading together again in the evenings – which, believe it or not, seems to be the best time of day to fit in a really great conversation, while teaching them about morals based on the literature. It may sound all supermom of me, but I’m not doing all of this perfectly well. But even on the days where paid work takes over and I have limited moments with the kids – actually, especially on those days – I’ve realized that being in the moment is ever more important. This was brought to focus when my eight-yearold said, “Mom, I like how you don’t yell much these days.” It’s amazing what we can accomplish when we’re proactive and present rather than reactive and distracted.

he other day, my boys got off the school bus. It was one of those days where the driver had enforced silence for the entire 20-minute trip, so they were quite chatty – talking over each other, mixing French and English. It was making my head spin. I was trying to respond to a text message from a friend. Later that evening, after we’d done homework, had supper and taken showers, I was waiting for them to go to bed. I thought I’d check my email and Facebook accounts. While I was sitting in my office, my eldest came in to tell me about a presentation they’d had at the school – something about electricity and a pickle. I nodded and laughed distractedly when he laughed and furrowed my eyebrows to match his expression. The next morning he asked me about the pickle. I was confused. “I told you about it last night,” he said. “Oh yeah,” I said. “What was that about again?” He told me the story again. This time I got a bit more, but I was making school lunches. Wrapping deli meats can be rather focus-intensive for me. So once again I missed the point of the story. I came away with “guest presentation, funny, pickle, good thing it wasn’t a human, right?” The sad reality is most adults these days go about their days in a state of halfpresence. I would wager

Put Your Best Foot Forward:

Plan, Walk, Play, Enjoy May is Physical Activity Month and there is no better time to lace up your sneakers and put your best foot forward. Ottawa Public Health is sharing some tips to get residents moving!

PLAN Whether you walk for leisure to get reacquainted with your neighbours or as a useful way to get from point A to point B, there’s an “App” for that. Think about ways you can plan your trips and activities. Take advantage of new technology and Plan! Use websites such as Map my walk to map your own routes or visit National Capital Commission and Gatineau Park trails network websites for information on trails, maps, and route distances throughout Ottawa-Gatineau. OC Transpo has smartphone Apps that can help plan your trip. Or maybe you want to bike but the distance is too far? Find out what buses have a Rack and Roll.

WALK Walking is a low cost activity that can be done by almost anyone, anywhere. It is the ideal mode of transport for trips of 2km or less. Take advantage of the beautiful spring weather and

walk to work or school, to the store or simply to get a coffee. Walk with a friend during lunch or take the bus to work and build walking into your everyday activities. Getting off a stop earlier will add extra minutes of physical activity to your day. When heading to the mall, grocery store or work, park at the far end of the parking lot - will also help avoid parking lot car door dings! Change your walking routes, borrow a pedometer from the library or rediscover Ottawa by taking walking tours – it will keep things interesting and fun.

PLAY Children need a variety of physical activities throughout their day! Ensure your child takes part in active and structured play. Active play is childled, fun and energetic while structured play is adult-led, teaching movement skills like running, jumping, climbing and balancing. Children learn these skills by playing games, participating in sports and activities such as dance. Visit the ‘Active for Life’ or ‘Bring Back Play’ websites for ideas and games to make play and physical activity fun for you and your family.

ENJOY: You need to enjoy what you do to stay active. Plan a date with friends and head to a local city pool for a swim, sign up to a run or a cycling race or head to a dog park for human-dog social time. Whatever it is that brings you joy, put your best foot forward. Get off the couch or out of your office chair and start enjoying a more active lifestyle – it’s easier than you think! For more tips and ideas follow Ottawa Public Health on Twitter @OttawaHealth, Facebook, Pinterest or visit our blog at OttawaPublicHealth. ca For questions or more information call or email the Ottawa Public Health information line at 613-580-6744 healthsante@ottawa.ca.

Walking is good for your health, enjoy and be aware! Written by Joanne Veldman, Public Health Nurse Ottawa Public Health

Be aware of your surroundings • Seeing and hearing is key – be aware that cellphones and earbuds can lower your awareness • Make eye contact with drivers and cyclists before you step off the curb, make sure they stop for you • If no sidewalk is available, walk facing traffic • Notice uneven surfaces to avoid falls

Be Seen • Wear bright coloured and reflective clothing especially on rainy days and during dark hours • Choose the safest route, even if you have to walk a little further • Plan your route and cross at intersections or marked crossings • Be predictable and follow the rules of the road

Be a role model • Children need adult supervision to cross streets until they develop an ability to judge speed, depth and distance of cars. This usually occurs with teaching, around 10-11 years of age

• Let children see your commitment to following the rules of the road Enjoy your walk and invite someone to join you! Remember your comfortable walking shoes, sunscreen and water.

Parking project at Glebe centre set to begin michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - After years of raising money, planning and consulting members of the community, a parking and landscaping project at the Glebe Community Centre is ďŹ nally ready to move ahead. The Glebe Neighbourhood Activities Group has been working on plans to add more parking and an outside play area at the Glebe Community Centre for the past three years. With the groundwork for that project ďŹ nally laid, the remaining work to see those plans become reality is set to begin this June. Landscape committee member Kate McCartney said the project is the ďŹ nal step in renovations to the centre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the completion of a landscape development plan that was ďŹ rst envisioned

back when the GCC was renovated,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The current parking is actually only temporary parking pad that never got upgraded when the renovations were done, nor in 2007 when the walkway down to the front door as done, due to insufďŹ cient funds at those times. It was always the intention to ďŹ nish the job.â&#x20AC;? The construction of the new parking area will create what the committee describes as safe zones around the two school crossing areas at the end of the block and will move the sidewalk to where pedestrians will be safer. The project will also increase the available parking from six spaces and one handicap space to 18 total spaces. Four bicycle racks will also be added, which Capital Coun. David Chernushenko has donated towards the project, McCartney said.

MICHELLE NASH/METROLAND

The Glebe Neighbourhood Activities Group will change the parking and landscaping in the front of the Glebe Community Centre. The project is set to begin in June. The current parking area will be turned into a picnic area, something the committee has indicated is missing for the centre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Total green space will increase by approx 400 square feet (37 square metres),â&#x20AC;? McCartney said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will not be a loss of trees or added pavement to an area that is already green space.â&#x20AC;?

Multiple fundraisers were held, including Januaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Taste in the Glebe event. The group is receiving ďŹ nancial assistance from Cherenshenko for all bike-related costs, from the city for all the tree-related costs and the Glebe Community Association is helping fund the garden-related costs. The association has also applied for a grant to help cover the cost of the outdoor furniture, McCartney said, but the group is still waiting to hear about the status of that grant application. McCartney added that all construction and design will be done at cost and the city waived all administrative and legal costs. The committee has done extensive consultations with the community regarding the project, including halting plans to start construction back in the fall to consult further with residents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The project was driven throughout by community input and was initiated and brought to completion by volunteer members of the community,â&#x20AC;? she said. McCartney said the group has been told hard landscaping construction should take at least a week. Digging for the trees will take place in the fall.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;They (Bettye Hyde) have been amazing in making this come together,â&#x20AC;? she said. The daycare will be providing teachers for an art activity after the walk. In preparation, MacPherson said she took her young leaders out with a group of younger children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was fascinating to watch the walk,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The older kids were leading and the younger ones were so attentive. They would stop and look at something and the younger kids would ask a question and the older kids would give their opinions.â&#x20AC;? This scenario is what MacPherson hopes the May 5 walk will be about. It will lead children and their parents through Sandy Hill to Strathcona Park and along the Rideau River pathway. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really interesting about our walk is that we look at art on peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawn, the diversity of the lawns and urban landscape and then we will walk along the river and Strathcona Park,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we are special to have this urban-nature mix. That is a huge part of our walk.â&#x20AC;? Passionate about promoting urban living and landscapes, MacPherson said she loves events such as Janeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Walk because to her, these walks are all about getting people to love where they live. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These walks are about enjoying where you are living, and the kids are just one part of that overall enthusiasm,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The city doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be a demonized place, that we only live here because we have to, but that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actually a wonderful place, where people can make a change and I think if the children can see nature in Strathcona Park to the homes in the neighbourhood, and how these homes express themselves, they would see that they can also make change happen in this city.â&#x20AC;? Children must be accompanied by an adult to participate in the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s walk.

To kick off a weekend, organizers for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event have a Janeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Talk planned at TAN Coffee at 317 Wilbrod St. in Sandy Hill on May 2. The evening will focus on the neighbourhood of Vanier and the ongoing revitalization going on there. Multiple Vanier residents will be on hand to speak about the neighbourhoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rebirth. Museoparcâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Janik AubinRobert said each community representative will have a unique message, but the focus will be the same. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each organization will be given the chance to explain its role in the community and most importantly how it works together with others to achieve its goals,â&#x20AC;? Aubin-Robert said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want other communities to look at Vanier and say â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wow, what an amazing and diverse community.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Vanier is a changing community. We want to showcase these changes and make people aware of the wonderful innovative projects and initiative going on in this amazing community.â&#x20AC;? Sandy Hill is only one of the neighbourhoodsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; participating in this city-wide event. Walks are also taking place in Vanier, New Edinburgh, the ByWard Market, the Glebe, Old Ottawa South, Manotick, Kanata and Barrhaven among others. There will also be some French walks available. In New Edinburgh, local volunteers will be leading a walk titled Bring Back Beechwood, which will reminisce about changes to the street since a March 2011 ďŹ re destroyed a portion of the neighbourhoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main shopping district. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will be about remembering when, but it will also feature a visioning of what it can be,â&#x20AC;? said organizer Isobel Bisby. New Edinburghâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s walk will begin at 10 a.m. on May 5 and will start at the New Edinburgh Community and Arts Centre and will end at St. Charles Church.

Councillors OK limits on office spending Donation of office funds to charities must be made by way of city-issued cheque, the policy states. “This is not our money, it is the public’s money,” Watson told councillors. “If you want to be generous, use your own money.” Those contributions will now be limited to 3.5 per cent of each councillor’s annual office and constituency budget. That’s around the median of what councillors spent on those sorts of expenses in the last two years. “It shouldn’t be the taxpayers that pay for it,” Watson said, referring councillors using their budgets to pay for things like residents’ water bills or trips abroad. “They are called constituency service budgets, not office budgets,” said College Coun. Rick Chiarelli. “They are also there to provide community outreach … It shouldn’t surprise people that the functions correspond to exactly what the description is.” Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Egli tried to get the limit upped to five per cent, but his motion was defeated in a 6-5 vote with councillors Egli, Chiarelli, Mark Taylor and Doug Thompson voting in favour and councillors Peter Clark, Katherine Hobbs, Maria McRae, Scott Moffatt, Bob Monette and Watson voting against the increase. “We’re putting limits on it

Changes to expense spending, gift registry, code of conduct may come at city council won’t add onerous paperwork for community groups. “We have found that the best time to put things in place is when there is no scandal that council is addressing,” said Lesley Donnelly, the deputy city clerk. The city’s integrity commissioner, Robert Marleau, said he would prefer to eliminate gifts to council members entirely, but he understands it’s sometimes necessary to accept tokens so as not to offend the gifter. For the most part, the policies codify practices that are already in use, Donnelly said. Councillors were particularly concerned that the policy would impact their ability to contribute to community events. Things like providing refreshments for community barbeques or similar events would still be allowed, Marleau said. Councillors can also be involved in fundraising initiatives, but there must be a “a good, arms length relationship from the councillor and the funds that are raised,” Marleau said. Adding their signatures to letters asking for fundraising support is fine, Marleau said, as long as the letters are not send to lobbyists who are actively involved in lobbying the city.

EMC news - Councillors decided to be more restrictive about the value of gifts they must disclose under a new code of conduct policy. Reducing the value of gifts or meals that must be publically disclosed from the recommended $200 to $30 was the only significant alteration made to the policy during a committee meeting on April 25. But before approving the new code of conduct, councillors peppered the city’s integrity commissioner and clerk with dozens of questions about how the rules limiting spending of their constituency budget. College Coun. Rick Chiarelli said several councillors are preparing motions aimed at changing the policy when it goes to city council on May 8. Mayor Jim Watson emphasized that it was important for him to push for accountability measures like the code of conduct and lobbyist registry before any scandals happened in Ottawa. “It does not set impossibleto-meet standards that won’t drown us in a sea of paperwork,” Watson said, adding the changes

so it’s not a bottomless pit,” the mayor said. Egli said that different neighbourhoods might have greater need for community building a any give time, so the five per cent limit would have offered more flexibility. Councillors’ “constituency services budgets,” as they are referred to in the policy, provides councillors with resources to fulfill the following functions: • Administer their offices to serve their constituents and support their legislative role • Support their role as councillor • Enable them to communicate with constituents about the meetings and activities of city council and city hall • Assist with and lead activities that enhance the communities in their wards • Represent the city at functions and events McRae was the councillor who asked the committee to lower the gift-reporting limit to $30. Councillors won’t be allowed to contribute to purchasing material goods on behalf of groups, or contributing to city-funded services or departments. If councillors want to contribute to something the city would normally pay for but is not in the budget, like a pedestrian crossing, it would have to be approved by a council motion.

Madeleine Meilleur,

City brings hammer down on home conversions Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - In a surprise move to deal with conversions of homes to apartment buildings, the city’s planning committee chairman sponsored a motion to put a temporary hold on any conversions in Sandy Hill, Vanier and Capital Ward. The rare measure of using the interim control bylaw is one of the strongest tools the city can use and it’s not undertaken lightly. The temporary moratorium on certain types of conversions will give city planning staff time to look at how to address issues created by housing 16 or more people in houses that used to be home to one family. Things like garbage, parking, bicycle parking and noise led to the implementation of a pilot project requiring something called site-plan approval for conversions in Sandy Hill, where pressure to provide offcampus housing for students has resulted in many such conversions. The ward’s councillor, RideauVanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury, said he and city staff quickly realized that site-plan control wouldn’t be enough to deal with the fallout of cramming several times the number of residents into a home than previously resided there. “We realized ‘site plan light’ was addressing what we were hearing … but it wasn’t getting to the core,” Fleury said. When the same issues were identified in Old Ottawa South, Capital Coun. David Chernushenko asked the planning committee to adopt the same type of site-plan controls for his ward. Instead, planning committee

chairman Coun. Peter Hume surprised him by proposing the much stricter interim control bylaw. “We were making it clear that this is a big problem,” Chernushenko said. “There are times when your public servants say… ‘This isn’t looking good.’ “We’re pressing the pause button as we look for a solution.” City staff will report back in four to six months on a more permanent fix for controlling conversions, said John Smit, the city’s manager of urban development review. Fleury said he hopes the rules Smit and his team come up with result in housing conversions that “respect the mature neighbourhood that Sandy Hill is.” Part of the challenge is finding a way to encourage the University of Ottawa to build student residences in the community, he said. Chernushenko said he has had discussions with developers about the seriousness of the issue and how he hoped to tackle it, so the move shouldn’t come as a surprise to builders who were planning to convert homes. Chernushenko is hoping the solution staff find is sensitive to the need for a mix of housing types. He doesn’t want any changes to reduce the availability of more affordably housing geared at students or people with low incomes and seniors. “Let’s be very careful that this isn’t about students and apartments,” he said. We can’t set the rules (so) tight that we’re precluding ourselves from reaching diversity and affordability goals.” The portion of Capital Ward south of the Rideau River is not included in the interim control bylaw.

INVESTING IN BETTER CARE FOR OUR SENIORS Our government is improving health care for all patients in Ontario and especially for our seniors. I am pleased to report that as of August 1, Ontario will provide more than 200,000 additional seniors and patients with improved access to high-quality physiotherapy, exercise, and falls prevention classes. Falls are one of the leading causes of injury for people over the age of 65. In fact, the risk of falling increases with each decade of life and can have FILE devastating consequence including fractures The city has halted certain types of single family and traumatic brain injuries (TBI). To address this home conversions in areas adjacent Ottawa’s univerisity campuses to give city planning staff time to look problem, more one-on-one physiotherapy, group exercise classes and falls prevention services will at the issue. be available in long-term care homes across Ontario, including of course our community.

Somerset Street to come alive during Chinatown celebration Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

appropriately with an outdoor after-party held at Shanghai Restaurant. Donald Kwan, co-owner of Shanghai, co-founded the non-profit collective that has run Chinatown Remixed since its inception in 2009. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year there are 40 different venues, paired with 40 visual artists,â&#x20AC;? said Kwan. R0012068676

EMC community - Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chinatown will become a hotbed of art, food and culture during a May 18 street celebration. Now in its fifth year, Chinatown Remixed is a growing one-day event that brings to-

gether Somerset Street West businesses with Ottawa artists of all mediums. From restaurants and groceries to medical offices and laundromats, local businesses open their doors to artists and patrons as a way of celebrating the cultural uniqueness of the neighbourhood. The street celebration ends

â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are video installations, artists working with sound, sculptural elements â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really diverse crosssection of the arts scene.â&#x20AC;? The celebration receives funding and support from both the city and the Somerset Street Chinatown BIA. Kwan, who has an art history background, took his skill in curating the space inside his restaurant and decided to apply it to the whole Chinatown community. At first, he figured it would be difficult bringing enough artists on board.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every year we do a callout for (artistic) submissions in January and this year we had over 100,â&#x20AC;? said Kwan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d think the talent pool in Ottawa wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be that strong, but each year it gets larger and larger.â&#x20AC;? The 40 artists involved in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event are profiled on the website www.chinatownremixed.ca, alongside a map showing what establishments they will showing in. Food and beverage factors into the street experience as well, as restaurants will have goodies on hand and Kit-

chesippi Beer Company will be handing out samples of its new soda line while sponsoring (and fueling) the main stage at Shanghai Restaurant. Booked for the concert are transgendered indie electronic musician Rae Spoon and Ottawa experimental band Silkken Lauman. Chinatown Remixed runs from 1:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. on May 18, with the musical after party running from 5 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. The works of art will remain in the businesses all month.

Blackboard zeal leads to outhouse chore

T

here’s goin’ to be heck to pay,” Emerson said at recess that day when the warm spring weather had finally arrived and the entire school was out in the schoolyard – even Miss Crosby. She was sitting on the stoop working on her daybook and enjoying the warm sunny day. Emerson went on to explain: “Miss Crosby told Two Mile Herman it was his turn to clean off the blackboards after school. And when I went back in the school to get the ball glove out of the cloak room, there was Marguirite wiping the blackboards like a maniac. The chalk dust was flying everywhere. I tell you Miss Crosby won’t be happy and Two Mile Herman will just about kill Marguirite.” Back then it was a privilege to be asked to do any of the cleaning necessary to keep the school as neat and tidy as possible. Miss Crosby had to be careful not to give the privilege to the same person too often or the rest of us would be mad. Whatever job we were given, we did it hap-

We scrubbed the floors once a month, took ashes out of the stove, washed the windows and one of us, for a whole week, had the job of emptying the big green tin waste basket at the end of each day. One of the jobs nobody wanted was one assigned on the last school day of every month. Because it was a detested job, it always went to a boy from Senior Fourth. He would carry the pail of lime out of the cupboard at the back of the school, carry it to the outhouse and shovel in a heaping dose. Inside the outhouse there was a tin can of lime which we were supposed to use when we went

to the bathroom for serious business, but I was pretty sure back then that very few pupils bothered. And every morning, just after singing God Save the King, Miss Crosby would announce the name of the person who would be given the privilege of cleaning off the blackboards and that day, the job fell to Two Mile Herman. Thinking she was going to get on the good side of Miss Crosby, Marguirite sneaked back into the school during afternoon recess and stole the job away from Two Mile Herman right out from under his nose. Well, when Miss Crosby rang the bell and we marched back in (all in order of course – the youngest of us at the front of the line, the oldest homehardware.ca

What she hadn’t done, which was always part of the job, was to take the brushes outside and pound them together to get rid of the chalk dust. She left them sitting on the ledge of the blackboard. To say Two Mile Herman was roary-eyed mad was an understatement. “That was my job, you dirty little Protestant,” he roared – Two Mile Herman was Catholic. Sixteen pairs of eyes darted (there were 18 of us at the Northcote School) from Miss Crosby, who wouldn’t tolerate for a second an outburst like she just heard from Two Mile Herman, then to Marguirite, then back to Herman. I was sure he would get a taste of the leather strap which hung on a cup hook on the side of the teacher’s desk. And Marguirite, sitting so smug you just wanted to slap her, was beaming.

Hospice hosts Girls Night Out

EMC community - Always a hit with the ladies, Friends of Hospice Ottawa is set to host its seventh-annual Girls Night Out event on May 31. This year, the evening event will take place at Algonquin College. Tickets are $70, which includes dinner and wine, and a silent auction with more than 200 items. “The big attraction is that we have firefighters escorting the ladies to their tables, helping with the raffle and then they help with carrying out the heavy items at the end of the evening,” said Alice Holst, a volunteer with Friends of Hospice Ottawa. “We have entertainer extraordinaire George Thomas. He’s promised us he’ll have everyone up singing and dancing, clapping along and enjoying the music.” The fundraising goal for the event is $75,000, with proceeds going to the hospice’s services and programs that are provided at no charge. “We encourage people to come out,” said Holst. “It’s a nice way for them to sup-

with Clean Eating and Active Living Combating Sugar

Failing to Plan is

Cravings

Planning to Fail

We all have been known to reach for that sugary treat once in a while, but what if you can’t seem to get enough? One of the most common causes for sugar cravings is linked to a hormone imbalance. As a result your mood and energy get low. To help, your body simply looks for quick fuel and the happy hormone serotonin. So what can you do? Prevention is the key. Start your day off right by exercising to increase serotonin. Then have a whole grain breakfast which helps to balance your blood sugar. Next, include cruciferous high fibre veggies like kale which helps your hormones. For all of your meals, work on including protein and healthy fats from foods like walnuts, which help tell your body you are full. Lastly, sprinkle spices like cinnamon, coriander and saffron, to any of your creations to kick your cravings to the curb even more!

Centretown Citizens Community Association president Jordan Charbonneau said in hindsight, the discussions should have been more open. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wish we had been more inclusive from the beginning,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We recognize that it upset people.â&#x20AC;?

Timelines were short and the board was unsure what â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if anything â&#x20AC;&#x201C; would come from the discussions, Charbonneau said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because there was so much likelihood for outrage, we wanted to see if it was even possible first,â&#x20AC;? Charbonneau said. The April 23 meeting was





            

 

     

ing the complex information that had evolved over three years of work and consultation. In the end, the vast majority of people in attendance put up their hands to vote that they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know which option would be best. The show of hands is just one factor the community association board will use to form its position on how to move forward, Charbonneau said. The association will also be looking to communications from residents and word of mouth. The root of the difference between the developer-community board deal and the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed plan is how they would deal with provisions for allowing taller buildings. Under the community design plan supported by city staff, this would be done under a landmark buildings policy. Most people on either side of the argument agreed that the application for the policy would be limited to only a handful of properties in Centretown. It would place a list of restrictive requirements on where a â&#x20AC;&#x153;landmarkâ&#x20AC;? building could go and what it would

have to look like. I would also require builders to include either a community use, cultural or institutional facility, or a large public open space comprising 40 per cent of the property. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like that because it confirms just how extraordinary and selective theses sites would have to be to exceed the max nine storey height limits,â&#x20AC;? Hanscom argued in her presentation. Some residents, including Thomas McVeigh, agreed. He said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not afraid of tall buildings, but he is afraid of losing Centretownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vibrant street life. Allowing a small number of very tall buildings will also allow Centretownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population to grow while preserving the low-rise neighbourhoods on the east and west sides of Centretown, he said. People who reject the tall landmark buildings policy saw removing all limits on building heights in Centretown save for the Parliamentary view plane would be ludicrous. Instead, they favour something that would help green Centretown in smaller ways, by offering modest increases in building height in exchange for a certain amount of public

Ted Fobert of FoTenn Consultants said the group of seven developers he represents are â&#x20AC;&#x153;looking in a truly altruistic way at the community of Centretownâ&#x20AC;? by giving up the opportunity to build towers under the landmark buildings policy. But others said the developers would be gaining, not giving anything up. Far more properties in Centretown would qualify under the â&#x20AC;&#x153;small momentsâ&#x20AC;? provisions, meaning Centretown could see a proliferation of 15-storey buildings as opposed to the nine-story limit set out in the community design plan. But most people at the meeting seemed undecided or unsure of the details of the policies and what they meant. The Centretown community design plan has already seen multiple delays and it is now set to be considered for final approval by full city council on May 8, said Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes. Before that happens, there will be one final public meeting during which city staff to reveal its response to the deal between the developers and the community association board. That meeting was set to take place at city hall on April 30 at 1:30 p.m.

Brant Pethick to perform latest album at Shenkman â&#x20AC;&#x153;The embracing life message, the positive messaging (in my songs) have really hit home with the community,â&#x20AC;? he said. The June 15 show will give him a chance to perform his entire album for friends, family and fans in Ottawa. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be joined by two other Ottawa musicians, Colin Bernard and Dan Barkley, to round out the show. The guest artists represent the two aspects of Pethickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music. While Dan Barkley is more pop-driven, Colin Bernard is well known in the Christian music scene, he said. Bernard was a 2013 Juno nominee for contemporary Christian/gospel album of the year. Pethick has worked to incorporate positive messaging into his music, which can be played on Christian radio but embraced by a wide audience. The Awake album, Pethickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second, has 11 songs, several of which have been nominated for awards.

EMC entertainment - Brant Pethick took a less traditional route for his upcoming album release concert. The OrlĂŠans singer-songwriter launched his Awake album last September and is planning the release concert nine months later, at the Shenkman Arts Centre on June 15 starting at 7 p.m.. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I decided to wait to gain some traction, and with some radio play to be able to grow into the fan base,â&#x20AC;? Pethick said. The pop-rock artist has received play for two of his singles, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Only Youâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Awakeâ&#x20AC;?, on Christian radio across Canada, and mainstream radio in Western Canada.

The song â&#x20AC;&#x153;Imagine Somedayâ&#x20AC;? was a finalist in the 2013 Christian Song Competition, and two other songs were semifinalists in the International Song Competition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These songs are real, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting some traction and people have been providing some great feedback,â&#x20AC;? Pethick said. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be the first time heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s played the 500-seat main hall at the Shenkman Arts Centre. Pethick is also looking forward to upcoming performances at the Ottawa Race Weekend and the OrlĂŠans Festival to promote his album release concert, along with promotions on CHRI, a Christian radio station. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From coast to coast, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve liked the music,â&#x20AC;? Pethick said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve worked really hard to connect with people and radio stations.â&#x20AC;? Tickets are on sale online prior to the show for $20 at www.capitaltickets.ca. Tickets will be available at the door the night of the show for $25.

Safari photos help photographer win national award Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC entertainment - Ask Randy Shaughnessy what the biggest challenge is shooting wild animals on a Tanzanian safari, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll tell you dust. Spoken like a true photographer, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more worried about protecting his lenses and getting a clear shot than the sweltering African heat or photographing wild lions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You learn itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not that risky, the cats see you not as a person in a vehicle, but a vehicle the size of an elephant,â&#x20AC;? Shaughnessy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Patience is a big thing. Cats in the middle of the day are pretty boring â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s waiting around for something to happen.â&#x20AC;? For his wildlife and nature photography, Shaughnessy was honoured with a premier Canadian Photographic Artist of the Year Award, which he received at the Professional Photographers of Canada Associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual conference in Vancouver. Awards were given for portrait, commercial, wedding and Shaughnessyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s award, specialist (photographic artist). He said judges look for variety in the photos selected, and imagines they havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen before. His set included photos from Tanzanian safaris, and travels throughout North America. In 2012, he won the provincial Photographic Artist of the Year

award, and best in class for the animal â&#x20AC;&#x201C; wild/domestic category. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve stepped up and submitted some enhancements,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of them were the same photos with little changes. Often when you go in and are judged, you get ideas of ways you can bring (your photos) up to another level.â&#x20AC;? He started shooting the mountains in Alberta, where he grew up, as a youth, but kept photography as a part-time passion while working in information technology. The OrlĂŠans resident decided to dive in and become a full time photographer, shooting weddings, portraits, wildlife, and everything in between. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The last three years Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gone full speed into it, 90 per cent of my time is into photography,â&#x20AC;? he said. He operates a studio out of his home, Shaughnessy Photography, and travels around the world photographing people, landscapes and animals. Soon he will lead photo safari tours, helping other photographers with the small details heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s picked up along his travels in Tanzania. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s everything you can imagine there,â&#x20AC;? he said. Shaughnessy said when he goes on vacation, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s different than most â&#x20AC;&#x201C; while many are sitting on the beach, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hiking trails, camera in hand. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also about to start teaching a continuing education photography course at St. Matthew High School.

SUBMITTED

OrlĂŠans photography Randy Shaughnessy recent won a premier Canadian Photographic Artist of the Year award for his photography. He hopes to enter a different category in future years to his different skills in photography.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always keeping variety, so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to look at some of the other options and continue doing what

Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing,â&#x20AC;? Shaughnessy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Onward and upward, looking for more challenges.â&#x20AC;?

EMC news - Pacers, partnerships and pledge forms are making the third annual Goode Run more appealing than ever for runners of all skill levels. The charity run on Saturday, May 11, is the largest fundraising event for the Osgoode Youth Association, and last year attracted about 400 people who walked and ran two, five and 10-kilometre routes on Osgoode’s multi-use pathway. This year, event organizers are raising the bar with professional elements like learn-torun clinics leading up the big day and pacers for the five and 10-kilometre routes. “There are people running the race that are more committed to improving their runs and making a certain time, and we had that request (for pacers) from a few people last year,” said Nicole McKerracher, executive director of O-YA. McKerracher and event organizer Heather Roe partnered with several elite runners from Good Guys Tri, a non-profit

group that uses running events to support charitable causes. Several Good Guys members visited one of the weekly learn-to-run clinics hosted throughout March and April, and they will return as pacers on May 11. For the first time, runners can also collect pledges for their run, which McKerracher hopes will add a few thousand dollars to their fundraising total. In past years only sponsorship money and registration costs were collected. Still, every dollar counts, McKerracher said. “Because the run is entirely volunteer-led, 100 per cent of the money goes back into OYA,” she said. This year has been particularly challenging without funding from United Way, she added. “2013 is the first year the United Way hasn’t put out a call for proposals in years, so that was a hard hit for us. That is a challenge all across the board for all of our programs.” Any money raised at the run - they’re hoping for about

$25,000 - will be used to pay staff, keep the doors open and finance programs. Pledges or not, McKerracher said they won’t meet their goal if registrations don’t pick up soon. They are hoping for 500 participants, and so far they only have about 200 people registered, she said. “It’s always an exciting event here at O-YA as a great community event,” she said. “There’s a really excited buzz around the centre on race day.” A family two-kilometre run/walk begins in front of the youth centre on Osgoode Main Street at 9 a.m. along with the 10-km walk, which is new this year. The five and 10-km runs begin together at 10 a.m. To register visit www.oya.ca. For pledge forms email McKerracher at o-yacentre@ rogers.com. O-YA aims to enrich the lives of youth ages seven to 18 in Osgoode ward through programs and services aimed at prevention, education, skill building, inspiration, socialization and recreation.

Work underway on O-Train service expansion each of the ďŹ ve O-Train stations will be offered by Route 107. That route will follow the southeast Transitway from South Keys Station to Heron, then connects to Bronson Avenue via Data Centre Avenue. The route then performs a loop of Campus/University avenues at Carleton University before leaving Bronson to connect to Preston Street via Carling Avenue. It then continues down Preston Street to Albert Street to reach the Lebreton Transitway Station. Construction of passing tracks will allow for double the number of trains to run â&#x20AC;&#x201C; four instead of two â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with service going from every 15 minutes to every eight minutes after the new infrastructure has been tested. The

EMC news -+ Taking advantage of lower ridership rates between school years, work begins on the O-Train service expansion project on April 27. Between that date and Sept. 2, the transit line will be shut down to make way for track, bridge and tunnel maintenance, station upgrades, and the construction of passing tracks in two locations - one of them near Gladstone Avenue, the other by BrookďŹ eld Road. The $59-million project was approved by city council in 2011. During the shutdown, service to

city will receive delivery of six new diesel Alstom Coradia Lint trains this fall to replace the three Bombardier trains that have been in service since the line opened in 2001. The city has notiďŹ ed Carleton University that there will be some trafďŹ c congestion in the area of the River Building once work commences. As of press time, OC Transpo has not responded to requests for information on the possibility of disruptions in the areas where passing tracks are being constructed. Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs, whose eastern ward boundary is the O-Train line, said her ofďŹ ce has had â&#x20AC;&#x153;no notiďŹ cation (that) it would be required.â&#x20AC;?

STEPH WILLEMS/METROLAND

The O-Train will be out of service from April 27 to Sept. 2 while the transit line undergoes repair and expansion. A special bus route will be added to serve the O-Train stations during that period. Upgrades to increase the O-Trainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capacity are being carried out this year in advance of the planned shutdown of Hurdman Station in 2015. When that major transit hub is closed during

the construction of the Confederation LRT line, the O-Train should be able to handle the increased number of riders expected to use the service as an interim measure.

Ontario NDP press to lower car insurance rates pleboeuf@metroland.com

EMC news - A motion presented by the NDP could have Ontario residents seeing a 15 per cent slash in their auto insurance premiums. The provincial New Democrats pushed for the motion after watching premiums go up and payouts go down. Since 2010, the provincial government has agreed to increase premiums by five per cent and cut benefits by more than 50 per cent, saving the insurance companies about $2 billion annually. Previously the typical payout a moderately injured customer would receive hovered around $100,000, but the cap has lowered that amount to $50,000 with the average receiving much less. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The vast majority of people are now being told they can only get up to $3,500 in coverage which makes our coverage amongst the lowest in all of Canada,â&#x20AC;? said, Jagmeet Singh, a New Democratic MPP for Bramalea-Gore-Malton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Insurance companies have enjoyed, and this is not an exaggeration, one of the most historically significant reductions in their costs in Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history. Period,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So we are paying more money for an inferior product.â&#x20AC;? Over the years, the insurance companies have seen an overall cost reduction of 35 per cent. A legislated reduction of premiums of 15 per cent seemed fair for both customers and the industry, said the MPP. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want results that are achievable, that are reasonable and that will help people out,â&#x20AC;? said Singh. FRAUD PREVENTION: PCS

Insurance brokers do not believe a legislated premium reduction is the way to go, neither do the Progressive Conservatives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The motion to reduce premiums by 15 per cent period is a noble thought, but however it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t address the problem about why the premiums are high,â&#x20AC;? said Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP Jack

MacLaren. Various stakeholders have identified that preventing fraud is an integral piece to cutting down premiums for all. Fraud costs the industry between $750 million and $1.5 billion annually. Insurance companies are also wrapped in yards of red tape. They must apply to a regulatory body to change a premium rate whether to increase or decrease it. The process is slow and cumbersome and can take up to six months to get a reply, said MacLaren.

We want results that are achievable, that are reasonable and that will help people out.

cepted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All those things together, I think worked in finally putting pressure,â&#x20AC;? he added. The provincial budget is planned

to be approved at the end of April, but customers could start feeling the effects within a year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People will start feeling it during their renewal,â&#x20AC;? said Singh.

JAGMEET SINGH, BRAMALEA-GORE-MALTON MPP

Appealing a claim is also a tedious process, with customers often waiting up to a year for a response. Imposing a mandatory slash in premiums could do more harm than good by eliminating competition and the root causes of the problem would still be there, said MacLaren. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to do the tough work of getting rid of the fraud, getting rid of the red tape and providing a truly competitive environment for private companies,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The marketplace will reward us with lower premiums.â&#x20AC;? The NDP has countered that the party supports reducing fraud but that reductions in 2010 have already cut the number of cases and cost significantly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be contingent on further fraud reduction measures,â&#x20AC;? said Singh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a red herring, a politic of distraction. I think we should see those changes now. We are more than happy to implement more fraud reduction policies down the road but those should be tied in to more reductions.â&#x20AC;? The Liberal government has agreed to add the motion to the

Humane societies put their stamp on Canadian History Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

EMC community - The country will honour its four-legged friends in the form of a commemorative Adopt a Pet commemorative stamp. The stamp, which features actual pets that were up for adoption at the Toronto Humane Society, was unveiled at the Ottawa Humane Society (OHS) facility on West Hunt Club Road on April 22. Linda Barber, chair of the OHS board of directors, said the stamps will bring the message of animal welfare to residents across the country. “It’s fitting that this is happening in the Ottawa Humane Society’s 125th anniversary year,” Barber said. The Ottawa Humane Society takes in 11,000 abandoned and neglected animals per year. Barbara Cartwright, CEO of the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies, said a report

in 2011 showed that 600,000 cats and 400,000 dogs were up for adoption across the country that year. Minister of Transport, Steven Fletcher, said Canadian stamps are a great way to celebrate Canadian history and culture. “We live in the best country in the world, at a probably the best time to be a human. We should do what we can to make sure it’s the best time for animals too,” Fletcher said. The stamps, which will feature the likeness of seven different animals, are bordered with what appear to be the walls of a cage. Fletcher said when the stamp is removed, Canadians will be symbolically removing the animals from the cages. “We wanted to show real animals currently in the shelter system,” Deepak Chopra, CEO of Canada Post said. “Buddy” a 32-year-old parrot and Mr. Wrinkles a mixed-breed

Laureen Harper, who volunteers with the OHS, said she was happy to see animals like parrots shown on the stamps, because it will remind

people that it’s not just dogs and cats in need of our help. “Each type of animal has their own rescue society,” she said.

The race is on Mayor Jim Watson broke out the silly string for a goofy on-land dragon boat race with other city councillors, including West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry, at city hall to launch the annual fundraising campaign for the Ottawa Dragon Boat Foundation on April 24. So far more than $12,800 has been raised towards the $450,000 goal in support of seven local charities, including CHEO, the Youth Services Bureau and the Ottawa Humane Society. The Tim Hortons Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival – the largest of its kind in North America – will take place at Mooney’s Bay June 20 to 23.

PET OF THE WEEK

Pet Adoptions DUKE

STUBBS

ID#A154455

ID#A152261

Duke is 10 month-old energetic, neutered male, tricolor Coonhound who loves to say hello to everyone he meets. He was transferred to the Ottawa Humane Society from another shelter on April 5, and is now available for adoption. He’s got a tone of energy to burn so he’d love to go hiking and running on-leash daily. Mentally stimulating courses like agility, fly-ball or scent tracking would be

lots of fun for Duke! He gets along with other dogs that are big, silly and goofy like him and can handle his style of play. Duke needs a feline and small mammal free home as he may get the urge to chase them. Duke will need a detached home where his serenading of passersby won’t be an issue! Stubbs is a 5 year-old, neutered male, gray and white Domestic Shorthair cat

who love to be pet everywhere! He was brought to the Ottawa Humane Society as a stray on December 26, 2012 and is now available for adoption. This unique cat has a cute little stub of a tail, like a bunny. He gets along with anyone with an empty lap, or lonely-looking windowsill! He’s been patiently waiting in the Adoption Centre for someone to come scoop him up and take him home so he can offer all his kitty love. Stubbs is a “Special Needs” adoption as he will require a special diet due to possible underlying inflammatory bowel disease. Visit the OHS website at www. ottawahumane.ca to see photos and descriptions of all of the animals available for adoption. Stop by the Adoption Centre, weekdays 11:00am7:00pm and Saturdays 10:00am-5:00pm.

De-skunking your dog

Pip

Pip is a little brown tabby, and Vanier resident. She is approximately eighteen years old but was a Humane Society rescue so her mom and dad aren’t quite sure how old she is. Even though she’s getting up there in years, Pip enjoys a hearty meal and will squeak to remind you that she’s hungry. Hobbies include resting on the heating vent and resting on the audio receiver. 9dndji]^c`ndjgeZi^hXjiZZcdj\]idWZÆI=:E:ID;I=:L::@Ç4HjWb^iVe^XijgZVcYh]dgi W^d\gVe]nd[ndjgeZiidÒcYdjiH^beanZbV^aid/X[dhiZg5i]ZcZlhZbX#XVViiZci^dcÆEZid[i]ZLZZ`Ç

soda; and 1 teaspoon liquid dishwashing soap. Wearing rubber gloves, wash your dog with this solution as soon as possible. Don’t get the solution in the dog’s eyes. (If you don’t have peroxide, baking soda, and liquid soap on hand, use vinegar diluted with water.) Don’t save this mixture or make it ahead of time, as the mixture could explode if left in a bottle. Rub the mixture through the dog’s fur, but don’t leave it on too long (peroxide can bleach fur). Rinse thoroughly. Next, wash your dog with pet shampoo and rinse thoroughly. By now, he should be de-skunked and smelling sweet. Thoroughly towel-dry your dog, and be sure to place him in a warm, sunny room for the next couple of hours so that he doesn’t get chilled. He should also have a large dry towel on which to lie down. If you dog has long fur, you may need to use a hair dryer to dry his fur. If your dog rubbed some of the stink onto you, you can rid your clothes of the smell by using regular laundry detergent mixed with a half-cup of baking soda.

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

Skunks are everywhere—in the country and in the city. The Ottawa Humane Society has received several skunksighting phone calls lately from Ottawa residents wanting to know more about these smelly creatures and looking for advice on how to get the skunk smell out of their dog’s coat. If your dog gets sprayed, there are ways to get rid of the scent without using your entire ketchup (or tomato juice) supply to do it. If you don’t have time to head to the store for over-thecounter odour-remover products, try the following at home remedy provided by the Humane Society of the United States (www.humanesociety.org): While you prepare the de-skunking solution, keep your dog outside so he doesn’t carry the smell into your house. Check his eyes; if they’re irritated or red, immediately flush them with cool water. Mix together: a half-litre of three-percent hydrogen peroxide (available at your local pharmacy) ; 1/4 cup baking
