French board to Inside build new school NEWS in Riverside South Expansion needed to deal with student growth: board Jennifer McIntosh

EMC news – The French public school board for eastern Ontario got a cash infusion on Jan. 17 that will see construction of a new elementary school in Riverside South. The new school in Riverside South is expected to open in 2016 and will offer junior kindergarten to Grade 6 classes. The funding will also pay for expansion of Michaëlle Jean French public elementary school in Barrhaven, which is bursting at the seams. When the school opened in 2007, there were only 150 children, and now there are more than 500 said principal Martine Charbonneau. The province announced that it will fund the construction of an additional 14-classroom module to add more student capacity. Construction is set to begin in March. The two projects will total

$13 million and will deal with a steady increase of students moving to the French public board. “We would like to thank the parents for their passion in advocating to secure this funding,” said Denis Chartrand, a vice-president with the board. He added that once schools are built they will quickly fill up as students move from immersion programs. The board has experienced a 4.5 per cent growth in student enrolment over the past year, which Chartrand said he owes to Ontario parents understanding the importance of bilingualism. Madeleine Meilleur, the provincial minister responsible for francophone affairs said the funds will provide safe and modern places for Ontario students to learn. “I am pleased that the students and families in Riverside South and at Michaëlle Jean public school will benefit from our investments aimed at providing better school buildings,” she said. “We know that when students are in good learning environments they can focus on their learning.” See ROOM, page 2

EMC news - How can we create a more liveable Ottawa? That’s the theme of an upcoming public consultation on how to rewrite the city’s Official Plan and the rest of its master plans for transportation, infrastructure, cycling and pedestrians –documents that set the stage for Ottawa’s development.

The city is holding its first public meeting about the review on Jan. 29, but community association representatives got a head start on the issue when about 40 of them gathered for a brainstorming session at the Overbrook Community Centre on Jan. 10. The session was hosted by the Federation of Citizens Associations, a citywide group that represents a number of community associations. For the first time, the city invited


the federation to send two representatives to sit on one of three consultation panels that will undertake the in-depth consultation and review of the plans. “There was no such community panel in previous runarounds of the Official Plan,” said federation member and Glebe resident Bob Brocklebank, one of the people taking the lead on the federation’s master plan input. “They have provided a greater role for the


community this time than in 2009.” “We’re trying to build a new city and have some influence over that,” added Gary Sealey, a federation member from the Kanata-Beaverbrook Community Association. From infill to traffic congestion to more nebulous concepts like density targets and sustainability benchmarks, participants covered off what they see as the building blocks for a more liveable city.


Infill was a common concern. Anna Cuylits from Old Ottawa South said her community would like to see rules that have more teeth with regards to things like building setbacks and height. In Old Ottawa South, one of the main concerns will be pushing for the Alta Vista transportation corridor to be completely removed from transportation plans. The corridor is a proposed road linking Lees Avenue to Ottawa Hospital’s General Campus. See REPRESENTATIVES, page 5

No funds for public elementary school in Findlay Creek Parents disappointed and frustrated over decision Eddie Rwema

EMC news - Advocates for a new public elementary school in Findlay Creek might have to wait a little longer after their coveted project missed out on new provincial school funding. The province announced on Jan.14 that it was investing $47.9 million to support the building of one new school and four school addition projects within the Ottawa Carleton District School Board. While he sees the announcement as positive for the school board, Gloucester South-Nepean trustee Mark Fisher said he was disappointed the Findlay Creek project wasn’t considered for funding this time. “I am a bit disappointed that the provincial government didn’t choose to see this as an immediate priority in the mix of other urgent needs,” said Fisher. “We have been working for a number of years now to explain to the Ministry of Education the various difficulties we are having across the district.”

Fisher maintained he is still aiming at 2014-15 as the opening date for the new Findlay Creek School. “I am aware the ministry does see this as something that needs to be addressed,” said Fisher. “The project might be pushed closer to 2015, but we are not in a position where the ministry is saying nothing is going to happen until 2017.” Currently there are about 250 children living in Findlay Creek who attend public schools outside the community. The majority of those students currently attend Elizabeth Park Public School. COMMUNITY FURIOUS

Parents in the area were hopeful the closure of Elizabeth Park Public in 2017 could speed up plans to build a new public school in Findlay Creek. “To us it honestly looks like this is not even a priority and as such we will not see a school in Findlay Creek in 2014-2015,” said Sumana Jana, chairwoman of the education committee with the Findlay Creek Community

Association. She said that parents were not pleased with the announcement, adding that they feel rather helpless, because nobody seemed prepared to fight the battle on their behalf. “As a tax-paying citizen, it is ridiculous that we can’t eve get somebody to reply back to us and tell us what is going on,” said Jana. “We would wish to have someone from the ministry replying and telling us what plans they have for us.” Jana said she isn’t convinced the projected opening of the school in September 2014 will happen. “It took a lot of time for this amount of money to be given,” she said. “There is no way anybody can convince me that in the next 10 months we are going to get another $5 million to build a school here.” She said the community intends to write a letter to both the school board and the ministry demanding to know why Findlay Creek wasn’t on the list and requesting information on the project’s future plans.


Gloucester South-Nepean trustee Mark Fisher says he is disappointed the Findlay Creek project missed out on this round of funding but he still hopes to see a new elementary school open in the community in 2014. “Are we realistic about expecting our children to be able to attend the school in 2015? It doesn’t look like that right now,” said Jana. However, Fisher said that the project is currently in the best position possible to move forward.

“When you look at the capital priorities, the first seven or eight projects have now been fully addressed, and that puts us in the queue for the next round of funding in the next cycle,” said Fisher. “The community and I just need to keep up the pressure

on the ministry to make sure that is the case.” He said he will continue to push all officials at the local level and others that he gets an opportunity to talk to, to let them know how important and urgent the Findlay Creek project is. R0011870375

Representatives discuss Official Plan issues Continued from page 1

There was also some interest from John Verbaas of Action Sandy Hill in “making growth pay for itself” – finding ways for development charges to cover the true cost of building infrastructure needed to support sprawling suburbs. Rural participants were concerned about how the city defines a “complete rural village.”

“There’s an implication that they are incomplete,” said Ted Ross of the Manotick Village Community Association. No matter what actually ends up in the Official Plan and master plans, it will be important to ensure those ideas are put into practice. To that end, several community representatives suggested a need for a report card to measure the success or failure of the initiatives in the plans.

Representatives from the federation will join the community panel; other panels will include a sponsors’ panel for the city councillors leading the project, as well as a panel for the development industry. The draft Official Plan amendments should be presented to the city’s planning committee in June. More public consultation will follow, with draft approval of the Official Plan itself

EMC news - With exams around the corner, the Ottawa public library wants teenagers to know it has their backs. Starting Jan. 18, all 33 library branches in the city will be offering high school students a quiet, welcoming place to study for their exams. The program started last June when the Carlingwood branch handed out granola bars to any students studying in the library. Librarian Courtney Mellor said the program was a success, so the library decided to launch a program that will see studying students receive a bookmark, highlighters and Post-it-notes to help them with their efforts. “We want anyone studying for exams to know that they can come here with their friends and feel comfortable,” Mellor said. Help encourage students to visit the library ahead of examinations, branches will be installing large “Good luck on your exams/Bon succès lors de tes examens” banners in the branches. “It’s a way for us to encourage them,” Mellor said. The banners at Carlingwood are being created by volunteers Pearl Qui and Théa Gaudet. Both teens said they come to the library to study because of the quiet. “I can focus better here than at home,” Théa said. When the girls heard about the highlighters and Postit-notes, they said it would definitely help them with their studies. “It is great news,” Théa

Mellor said the key to the program is for all the branches to help students find a quiet place to sit, or if needed, help them with any research ques-

tions. “When it comes to research or questions concerning a book, we want them to feel more comfortable asking us for help and we think this pro-

gram can help them feel that way,” she said. The program will be running for the duration of the public board’s exam period, which wraps up on Jan. 31.

Soccer team narrows search for new NASL team coach Team name coming soon: president

EMC sports - The search for Ottawa’s North American Soccer League team coach could be a step closer, said Ottawa Fury owner and president John Pugh. The franchise will commence league play in 2014 as the major stadium reconstruction project at Frank Clair Stadium at Lansdowne Park is completed. “We do have a search in progress,” said Pugh, who is also a partner with NASL franchise owner Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group. “We have had some initial discussions with some coaches and we are now in the process of trying to get a short list of people that we would like to interview. “We are looking at a coach that is known to soccer fans, who has respect for his peers, players, fans management and so on.” Pugh said he hopes the team will have a coach that meets the brand of soccer they want for the club. “We have a certain brand of soccer that we like – which is possession with a purpose that is exciting and good to watch. I think that is going to be one of the most important characteristics of the coach that we are looking for,” said Pugh. Canadian soccer supporters had a chance last month to submit their names of choice for the new Ottawa NASL franchise through a name-theteam contest. Pugh said they received more than 4,000 entries and

added that it won’t be long before the decision on the name of the team is announced. “We are working with a branding company from Oregon to look at branding both the football team and the soccer team,” said Pugh. NEW LEADERSHIP NEW DIRECTION

On Jan. 17, OSEG appointed Bernie Ashe as the new CEO to oversee the group’s operations, including sports franchises, entertainment business and Lansdowne Park operations. “We are over excited to have been able to attract a man of his calibre. He’s got a lot of managerial experience,” said Pugh. “As the CEO of OSEG he has a lot on his plate. It’s quite a job and we are happy with the man we selected to do it.” In a statement, Roger Greenberg, who is also an OSEG partner, said he was delighted that Ashe agreed to join the group and lead business operations. “From the beginning, we planned to hire a CEO with a track record of success in diverse industries, including sports and entertainment, and we’ve certainly found one in Bernie,” Greenberg said in a release shortly after the hiring. “He also has deep roots in our community and a history of community service, which speaks to his integrity and our core values. Bernie will be a great asset to our organization and our city.” OSEG partnered with the City of Ottawa to revitalize

Jumping off the development merry-go-round


he challenges posed by development projects popping up across the city call for innovative responses, which is exactly what one Ottawa community association is doing. It’s something other community groups would be wise to take a long, hard look at as well. The idea, proposed by the Ottawa South Community Association, is to recruit members who have expertise

in land-use planning, architecture development and construction on the association’s planning and development review committee, known as OSWatch. The committee is forced to deal with complex development applications, relying on a dozen or so members who may not have the necessary expertise or experience to craft a position on such proposals. This forces the committee to spend most of its energy

trying to understand and later fight unwanted applications instead of being proactive and encouraging desired development. It’s a familiar problem for the dozens of community associations across Ottawa and the result is costly and unproductive. The process begins with a development application. If community members don’t like the proposed building, a number of meetings are held where the developer

outlines its plans, followed by a response – usually negative – from area residents. If the political pressure is strong enough, the ward councillor fights the application, sometimes over the objections of the city’s planning staff. If city council rejects the application, the developer has the option of appealing to the Ontario Municipal Board. That’s where the real fun starts. The city doesn’t exactly

have a stellar record opposing development supported by its own staff before the OMB. Case in point: the 2011 decision by the OMB to expand the city’s urban boundary by 850 hectares, over the objections of council and at the cost of hundreds of thousand of dollars in legal fees. It didn’t help that the city’s position was at odds with its planning staff. Nobody enjoys the ride on this merry-go-round – not

the city, the residents and not the developers, even if they ultimately win their case at the OMB. Wasted time. Wasted money. Old Ottawa South is hoping to get off this topsy-turvy ride and create a proactive development review process. By working with developers instead of automatically pegging them as the enemy, both parties can avoid many of the conflicts that often end up in the laps of the OMB. Compromise is often required, and that can only come following good communication and intelligent analysis.


Dreaming of a better Sparks Street CHARLES GORDON Funny Town


parks Street looks pretty bedraggled these days. Mind you, some of that is just the way winter works on our city. The snow piles up, then it melts, revealing all of yesterday’s litter and dirt. But of course litter is not all that’s bothering Sparks Street, a place that has never lived up to the high expectations placed on it when it opened as a pedestrian mall in 1966. Not that it isn’t a pleasant place at times. In the warm weather, at lunch hour, hundreds of people enjoy the sun and the stroll and visiting with their friends. Tourists, down from Parliament Hill, grab a coffee or a souvenir. But, as many observers have noted over the years, the place is silent as a tomb after six o’clock and more or less deserted on weekends. What happened? Well, the federal government happened. The government owns much of the real estate along Sparks and has not been helpful to merchants and would-be developers. At any given time, a number of merchants will have been displaced while Public Works renovates something or other. Even the most ardent planning advocate must be wondering if Sparks Street might have been better off with unbridled development. The other thing that happened was the Rideau Centre’s opening in 1983. Not that Sparks Street was exactly thriving before that, but it thrived even less afterwards. Important merchants decamped for the new shopping centre and shoppers were attracted away from Sparks Street. After that grew the idea that Sparks Street needed fixing. Various plans were implement-

ed, most of them seeming to involve moving planters around. None of them worked. And the attempt to lure tourists to Sparks Street has had an unintended consequence. Now the complaint is that you can’t find anything on the street that isn’t aimed at tourists. The latest proposal, one not put forward as a solution but as something worth trying, is to put a zip line, a kind of glorified rope slide, somewhere on the mall to attract thrill-seekers. Well, it might do that. But if it succeeds it will just bring zip line enthusiasts to the mall. They’ll zip and they’ll go home, unless there is something else to attract their attention. The same goes for another perennial dream – a Sparks Street casino. People will come to the casino, stay in it and go home. There’s nothing for Sparks Street in that. The idea is not just to attract thrill-seekers and tourists to Sparks Street, but to attract people who live here, people who could decide to come downtown to shop instead of going to their nearest mall, who might decide to eat on Sparks rather than in the ByWard Market, who might want to hang out on a street where there is no traffic. It’s hard to believe this is impossible to achieve, yet it has been impossible to achieve for 46 years. The only thing that will save Sparks Street is a permanent constituency – in other words, more people living downtown. And should there be apartments where there were once dark offices, those who live there would flock to Sparks Street, if it was open at night and if there were stores and clubs and restaurants of quality. These in turn might attract people who live away from the core. In the meantime, new options will be presented for your consideration. Markets and zip lines and new logos and more planters. Whatever option is chosen, one of them should not be reopening Sparks Street to traffic. Great cities all over the world have created pedestrian-friendly areas and many of them work really well. Cities that don’t have such areas wish they did. We would too.

Middle-aged woman seeks fitness regime





10 Ottawa South EMC - Thursday, January 24, 2013

anuary is almost over, so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m starting to think about finding a new exercise regime. I like to wait until everyone else has given up on their New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolutions before committing to anything. As I approach official middle age, I realize that 2013 has to be the year I whip my pear-shaped, post-baby (times three) body into shape. And with all the articles about sitting being the latest epidemic -- sitting is the new smoking and all that -- I realize that sitting and smoking simultaneously is probably not the best way to go. So Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking for renewal. But as I look to define the new me -- the healthier, more fit me -- the almost middleaged me isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite sure where to begin. Besides the inherent psychological difficulty in taking that first step, a big part of the problem is also that there are so many choices available. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m wary of committing to something financially before Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve taken careful time -- possibly over coffee and/or red wine, while sitting, of course -- to examine all the options. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great yoga studio, for example, spitting distance from my house with a $100-per-month unlimited yoga deal on now. It sounds great. And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure my bones and muscles would love me to stretch myself in new ways, never mind the mental boost it would likely provide. But all that stretching and breathing? I wonder if I would get bored after a week or two. If I spit in the other direction -- you know, from my back door -- thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fitness and dance studio with regular, fun aerobic classes like zumba. Everyone tells me this is a really enjoyable way to get your heart rate up. But at $16 per session, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s within my financial grasp. And then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this really cool place, nowhere near my house, in Gatineau, called PhysXtreme, where a former personal trainer helps whip

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse you into shape by getting you to roll truck tires around and climb fireman poles and such. I have a neighbour that goes for the 6 a.m. workout. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s super fit and does mud-racing and all kinds of cool things with her muscular, fit body. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d never know she has two kids and sits in an office all day. The idea of doing a non-traditional workout is

I can commit to anything for 15 minutes, but thinking about doing something for an hour is really hard.

extremely appealing, but I wonder how long it would be before I decided I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be bothered to drive my car to Gatineau twice a week before everyone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day begins. I was about to throw in the towel and give up the whole search when I discovered a new exercise regime that may have been designed for the almost middle-aged me. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s low-cost; it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t require me to go anywhere; I can do it as frequently as I want and I may not even have to sweat â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not for long, in any case. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called high-intensity interval training, or HIIT for short. A body of research around HIIT suggests that short periods of intense exercise may be as effective as lengthy workouts for some people. The kinesiology department at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ont., for example, had test subjects do

30-second power pedalling on exercise bikes, interspersed with four minutes of relaxed pedalling. The pattern was repeated four to six times in a session for three sessions per week, a total of about 45 minutes of exercise over the course of the week. Similar studies conducted at universities across Britain and the United States have found this type of exercise may be as effective as a daily cardio workout in reducing insulin and glucose levels, improving metabolism and, in some cases, increasing muscle gain. The only downside to HIIT is that it could cause major physical injury and/or kill you. Study results are inconclusive. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also evidence that it may not benefit people of certain genetic makeup, so short of having blood tests conducted to determine results, it may be all for naught. Still, I think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to give it a try. As one friend pointed out the other day, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can commit to anything for 15 minutes, but thinking about doing something for an hour is really hard.â&#x20AC;? Yeah. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a big believer in baby steps. HIIT may just be my foray into extreme mud racing. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll let you know. In the meantime, I have to go upstairs and refill my coffee. It may be the only physical stimulation I get today and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only 6 a.m.

Paying tribute to classic jiggly treat Festival of Jell-O idea started as a joke, took on life of its own

River Ward City Councillor Conseillère, quartier Rivière

Airport Parkway Pedestrian and Cycling Bridge – January 2013 Progress Report After a short break over the holidays, construction of the Airport Parkway Pedestrian and Cycling Bridge is progressing well.

Steph Willems

EMC news - What started as a joke sent over the Internet via Twitter has turned into a new food-based festival for the Hintonburg community. Organizers within the Hintonburg Community Association are marking May 18 on their calendars as the day their neighbourhood and city will rally around a muchoverlooked and underappreciated food product, one which that has deep roots in North American culinary and social history. Often found at the back of the top shelf of Canadian pantries, Jell-O – the ubiquitous, nostalgic gelatin-based dessert – will soon have its day in the sun. The Hintonburg Community Centre will be ground zero for a number of Jell-O-based competitions at the unusual event, which started as a bit of social media fun but quickly took on a life on its own. “While it may have started off as an ill-conceived tweet, it turns out to be a pretty popular idea,” said association president Jeff Leiper, who insists the event be referred to as the Festival of Jell-O. Fuelling the enthusiasm for the event could easily be warm, nostalgic childhood memories of the colourful, gelatinous dessert, which remains popular with children and many adults to this day. A quick look at the history of the brand, which dates back

Work over the last few months included the placement of scaffolding, formwork and falsework for the upper half of the tower, completion of the east pathway connection, hot mix paving of the pathway, and the installation of a new access door and windows at the South Keys Transit Station. Next steps include resuming formwork, falsework and reinforcing steel on the upper tower, which needs to be in place before the concrete is poured. The contractor will also begin constructing the forming and falsework for the main deck crossing the Airport Parkway. For safety reasons, the contractor is installing temporary concrete barriers on the Parkway when necessary. Please use caution when driving in this area. STEPH WILLEMS/METROLAND

When it comes to food-based festivals in Hintonburg, it seems there’s always room for more. The Hintonburg Community Association recently announced they will be holding a Festival of Jell-O this May. to the 1897, shows that Jell-O is more strongly ingrained in Western culture than people give it credit for. At the turn of the 20th century, Jell-O – plain and in molded salad form – was seen as a luxury item meant to wow dinner guests (as it required refrigeration to prepare). In the mid-20th century, as the convenience-centred postwar age progressed, Jell-O puddings, and “no-bake” pies provided huge litters of kids with the sugar they craved and stressed mothers with the free time they needed. As generations and associ-

ated fads waxed and waned, the brand introduced numerous new products with varying degrees of success. But it is the original Jell-O, the semi-transparent, flavoured gelatin that people seem to hold the fondest memories of. The exact itinerary of the Festival of Jell-O hasn’t yet been set, but Leiper did say it will include a jellied salad competition and perhaps a Jell-O photography or art competition. There is also a hope that Kraft, the brand’s owner, might get involved once noti-

fied of the event. Hintonburg is quickly becoming known as a destination for food lovers and the community itself is also gaining recognition for its outsidethe-box events. Last year’s organized, community-wide wake held for the departing Kentucky Fried Chicken franchise was – much like the Festival of Jell-O – an idea that started as an offhand joke, but snowballed into the real thing. “Hintonburg is an irreverent community,” said Leiper. “People are reacting far more positively than I expected.” R0011871007

Association seeks developersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; input Laura Mueller

EMC news - While many community groups are busy ďŹ ghting tooth and nail against developers, Old Ottawa South is hoping to invite them in to review building projects. There is a growing desire to reform OSWatch, the planning and development review committee of the Ottawa South Community Association. Member Don Westwood went as far as to call the group â&#x20AC;&#x153;dysfunctionalâ&#x20AC;? during a Jan. 15 meeting of the association. The issues the committee deals with are complex and there is a nebulous and inconsistent membership of about a dozen people to review them, Westwood said. There is a need to invite people with industry expertise to participate, he said. More proactive planning and envisioning what a developmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s neighbours would like to see in the community is a goal the committee should look towards, Westwood added. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an ongoing issue for all community associations, said Michael Jenkins, president of the association. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a perennial challenge of OSCA and community associations in general,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How do you oppose bad development but create a consensus about development you think is important or good? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to encourage a positive agenda,â&#x20AC;? he added. This issue was one factor in the recent resignation of community association board member Greg Zador. In a letter printed in the January edition of the Oscar, a newspaper published in partnership with the community association, Zador said recent columns and articles

by OSWatch members are troubling, negative and strident. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They all point out development problems and what is not wanted, at least according to OSwatch members,â&#x20AC;? Zador wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;None offer solutions or speak to what Old Ottawa South wants.â&#x20AC;? Jenkins said because the volunteers on OSWatch spend most of their time reacting to a ďŹ&#x201A;ood of development applications, they have little time or energy left to look forward. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We spend time reacting to bad proposals,â&#x20AC;? Jenkins said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have time left to put into ideas about what might be good for the community.â&#x20AC;? Those efforts would be greatly helped by the addition of members who have expertise in land-use planning, architecture, development and construction, Westwood said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to engage with those people who are experts in our community,â&#x20AC;? Westwood said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Instead of continually moaning and ďŹ ghting against developers, how can we work with them? Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be indispensible.â&#x20AC;? The discussion during the community associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board meeting on Jan. 15 led Westwood and others to ponder a renewed push for a community development plan for the area. City staff had advised against seeking a community design plan for Old Ottawa South in the past, and former OSWatch chairman Brendan McCoy said he agreed that such a plan would not achieve the results the community was looking for. While Old Ottawa Southâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efforts are often focused on encouraging compatible residential inďŹ ll development, a community design plan is a tool the city uses to encourage more dense development in an up-and-coming area.

Councillors step in to represent Cumberland in Blais’s absence Coun. Bob Monette filling Cumberland role as needed Laura Mueller

EMC news - As Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais recovers after a heart attack and surgery, his office staff and fellow councillors are stepping in to fill his shoes. Blais, 32, suffered a heart attack on Jan. 7 while working out at GoodLife Fitness at Place d’Orléans. He was taken to the Monfort Hospital and later to the Ottawa Heart Institute, where he underwent surgery. Blais awoke from a medically induced coma two days later and is “on the mend,” according to a statement from his family. The statement also indicated that Blais is looking for-


ward to returning to work at city hall as soon as possible, but it is not known how long that might take. Blais’s office staff will be the main point of contact for residents and developers in the meantime. His office can be reached by calling 613580-2489 or by emailing Neighbouring Orléans Coun. Bob Monette said he

contacted Blais’s office immediately after he heard what happened. “I’ve offered my services as a city councillor for anything where they need a councillor’s intervention, such as bureaucracy, such as meeting with developers, meeting with the community,” he said. Monette was on his way to a first meeting with a developer on behalf of Cumberland residents on Tuesday, Jan. 15. Any help he gives is completely at the request and discretion of Blais’s office staff, Monette said. Blais’s staffers are “top notch,” so the day-today affairs of his office are in good hands, he said. “I meet with the developer (with one of Blais’s staff)… After I have all the information, I submit that to Stephanie (one of the staffers) with my own views and my own recommendations, but they have the final say on everything,” Monette said. “That’s

Cumberland Ward residents in meetings with developers, deputy clerk Leslie Donnelly said. “It’s been our experience that any councillor working on a file will respect the wishes and needs of the ward councillor, no matter what, because that’s what they get elected to do,” Donnelly said. “It has not been our experience that people have pushed their own agenda rather than doing what the ward councillor typically would do.”

“As a sense of precaution, we usually recommend that council pass a motion that says, because you are allowed by resolution, to excuse them from that provision in the municipal act,” said Rick O’Connor, the city clerk and solicitor. There is no time limit on how long a councillor can be on a leave of absence. A council motion is also required to give the clerk’s office authority to sign off on routine office expenses.

I’ve offered my services as a city councillor for anything where they need a councillor’s intervention.

But when it comes to certain development-related and planning issues that usually fall under the councillor’s control, neighbouring councillors are not allowed to sign off on those approvals, O’Connor said. “There would be no legislative authority for them to do that,” O’Connor said. “They can’t sign off on any of the delegated matters,” he added. As far as how long Blais might be away from city hall, Monette said he hasn’t received any information. “I haven’t heard anything except that he is responding well,” Monette said. “It was a very serious incident.”

Chair of the environment committee Maria McRae, right, said the city is looking for residents’ tips and reactions concerning the new recycling program. Four recycling fairs were held across the city on Jan. 19, including one at Jim Durrell Recreation Centre, 1265 Walkley Rd. The fairs offered residents a chance to weigh in on how the new program has been going three months in and handouts were available regarding recycling, green bins and garbage waste.

City promotes recycling Feedback, ideas wanted concerning new waste program Michelle Nash

EMC news - Residents had a chance to weigh in on the city’s new waste-diversion program last week. The city held four recycling fairs at community centres in Barrhaven, Kanata, Orléans and Heron Gate Jan. 19. Residents were offered a pancake breakfast while they filled out a questionnaire as well as picked up some handouts concerning waste-management strategies. Environment committee chairwoman, Maria McRae attended the fair in Heron Gate at the Jim Durrell Recreation Centre on Walkley Rd. “We are doing this because it’s interesting to see what is on people’s minds,” McRae said. “They (residents) have had three months to let us know how it has been going and we want to hear what they think about our long-term, waste-management strategies.” The questionnaire was available to fill out on IPads at the fairs. McRae referred to herself as a champion when it comes

to recycling and green bin use, and said as she continues to sort her garbage, which she has noticed the amount of packaging some food comes in. “At the end of two weeks, all I have is a garbage bag full of plastic packaging, it makes you think about what you are purchasing,” she said. Food packaging is one aspect the councillor said she is interested in receiving feedback. “I would like to see what the public has to say about packaging,” McRae said. “Should the city be dealing with businesses on packaging?” Aside from packaging concerns, other questions in the survey asked residents what they feel the city’s future role should be concerning waste management on a provincial and federal level, what residents feel is fair for services and households to pay concerning waste management provided by the city, the amount of waste a household provides and to what level residents are willing to commit regarding their own waste management and whether the city and businesses should

form a partnership when it comes to waste management or whether businesses should take a more active role in waste management. McRae said the fair were held on the early Saturday morning at local community centres to reach out to early morning hockey and skating families. McRae added that at one point the entire front foyer of the centre was filled with hockey bags while families participated in the questionnaire and ate the pancakes. “It has been working out really well,” she said. Jarrett Chalmers and his two daughters, Landry and Chloe were one of those families who attended, in between hockey games. “One just played and we are waiting for the other to go on the ice,” Chalmers said. The three ate some pancakes and participated in the questionnaire as well as some of the kid-friendly activities. Chalmers said the information is important, but for his family, they have been on the reuse, reduce and recycle path for quite some time. “We really saw no change when the city changed the garbage pick up,” he said. “We recycle everything.” For residents who did not attend the recycling fair, the questionnaire is available online at

Commission gives green light for equestrian proposal Plan could improve Nepean facility Jennifer McIntosh


EMC news - The National Capital Commission is placing its bets on a proposal to save a local equestrian park. The Wesley Clover Foundation, a charitable organization started by Kanata high tech mogul Terry Matthews, submitted a proposal to the commission in July 2012 after the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finance and economic development committee voted to stop running the Nepean National Equestrian Park on Corkstown Road. The commission announced on Jan. 17 it would be accepting the proposal following the conclusion of a requests for expressions of

interest process. The two parties are now working to put a lease in place and get all the approvals necessary. A press release from the NCC said the proposal would require an amendment to the Greenbelt Master Plan to allow for the sports fields and forest school. The amendment was to be considered by their board of directors on Jan. 23 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; after the EMC went to press. Jean-Francois TrĂŠpanier, chief executive officer for the NCC said the plan is in line with the commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s objectives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The NCC is pleased to announce such an ambitious initiative for this Greenbelt facility,â&#x20AC;? he said in a press re-

lease. The parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future as a cityoperated facility was questioned seven years ago and was given a reprieve with the direction that it needed to operate on a cost-recovery basis. Bay Coun. Mark Taylor said in July that national competitions offer economic benefit to the city, but two of the major shows that used to come to the park werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t coming anymore. The facility needed a $1.2million upgrade and had operated at a loss for the last six years. The proposal from the foundation includes a: â&#x20AC;˘ Trail riding program. â&#x20AC;˘ The Ian Millar Horsemanship Centre to attract highlevel equestrian competitions. â&#x20AC;˘ Forest school for children up to age six to learn about the outdoors. â&#x20AC;˘ An outdoor recreation area including, seven full-size soccer pitches. â&#x20AC;˘ Space for non-equestrian events, including the National Capital Flower Show, the National Capital Harvest Festival and an annual curling competition modeled after the HOPE Volleyball Festival. The proposal also includes the continued operation of a therapeutic riding program â&#x20AC;&#x201C; something residents and organizations spoke passionately about in pleas during a July 11 city council meeting.


The National Capital Commission has given the green light to a proposal from high tech mogul Terry Matthews that would see upgrades to the Nepean National Equestrian Park. Kris Sherry, one of the organizers for Dressage at the Park, a competition held at the park every August, said the event was a fundraiser for the program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We raise money for saddle cushions, tack and other supplies for the therapeutic riding program. If we arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t raising money for that, I am not sure why we would hold the com-

petition,â&#x20AC;? she said, following the news that the city would no longer be running the park. In July, Sherry said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not sure if the new owners would allow the competition to take place at the park and there is no other facility in the city that could accommodate more than two rings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We may be able to have a smaller competition some-

where else,â&#x20AC;? she said. Karen Sparks, executive director for the foundation, said the proposal was aimed at promoting equestrianism in the city and making it accessible. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are very excited to get going,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The WCF is hoping to make a big impact in the community and this will be our flagship project.â&#x20AC;?

Mission’s first female director ‘softened’ Sandy Hill shelter Laura Mueller

EMC news - The Ottawa Mission was a completely different world when Diane Morrison first arrived as a volunteer in 1990. For one thing, it was a different world for Morrison, who had never encountered a panhandler or someone living on the streets during her upbringing in the Wakefield, Que., area. The male residents of the shelter hadn’t encountered someone like her, either. Morrison was the first woman to work at the shelter before she became its first female executive director. Now, 20 years later, the Beacon Hill resident has come a long way from the days when the shelter’s clients wouldn’t talk to her. Now, they see her as sort of a mother. On Jan. 9 as she prepared for her retirement the next day, Morrison reflected on how her influence has “softened” the Mission. Morrison was working as a teacher in Chelsea and volunteering at the shelter when she decided to take a leave of absence from her job to run the shelter full-time for a year, which then turned into two years. At that point, there were no other volunteers, no donations, no treatment programs for the clients and just 17 employees – all men.

“The board didn’t know what to do. They always had men. They used to call me ‘dear,’” Morrison said. “It’s softened the place a lot.” The men of the Mission wouldn’t give her the time of day when Morrison first began coming to scrub nicotinestained walls. They eventually warmed up, thanks in part to the loose cigarettes Morrison would stock her pockets with and dole out to the men. “They generally have a good relationship with their mom. They don’t always have a good relationship with their dad,” she said. “It’s kind of that whole nurturing role.” One client Morrison really connected with was a man named Timmy. He was one of the first men with AIDS to arrive at the shelter, and Morrison provided a bed and a chance for his friends to visit him as he was dying. “We had the funeral for him here,” Morrison said. That defining moment in 2002 inspired Morrison to set up the first hospice for the homeless with 14 beds. Morrison’s work completely changed the way shelters approached finances. In the 1990s, people simply didn’t donate money to places like the Mission, Morrison said. “We were really strapped,” she said. When she started out, the Mission had an annual in-

Morrison was the first female volunteer, employee and head at the shelter. come of $300,000. Now, the Mission takes in $8 million a year. The first foray into fundraising was a $13,000 project to replace the Waller Street

building’s roof. It leaked, so the shelter was unable to put any beds on the top floor. The roof had just been installed when a fire broke out on Christmas Eve of 1992.

Firefighters had to smash a hole through the new roof to extinguish the flames and 70 men staying in the shelter that Christmas made their way to a nearby diner for some warmth



and food. “It was kind of a defining moment,” Morrison said. The fire made the national news and people began to recognize the Mission name for the first time. A newspaper advertising campaign followed after a suggestion from a man from California. Money that began to trickle in allowed Morrison to create the first programs for Mission clients, such as addiction treatment programs. Under Morrison’s tutelage, the Mission became the first local shelter to reach out to police and to the neighbouring community. Now, officers can walk through the shelter and none of the clients blink an eye, Morrison said. Neighbours are similarly nonplussed. There was some tension when crack cocaine use exploded in Ottawa about seven years ago and community meetings helped smooth over relations, Morrison said. This Christmas, residents moving into nearby condo buildings took up a large collection for the Mission and set up a tree with ornaments of socks and underwear to donate to the men. “(One condo resident) said, ‘You’re our neighbours,’” Morrison said. “You’re our neighbours and we’re your neighbours and we have to learn to work together.”

New calendar available from Brewer Park community group Photos showcase highlights from garden’s innaugural year

EMC news - To help mark the first year of the Old Ottawa South community garden, one green thumb went beyond tilling the soil to produce a commemorative calendar. The Brewer Park community garden calendar is available for free on the association website at It was created by community gardener Patrick Nantel and showcases the project’s inaugural year. “I had printed a few as presents for our supporters and one for my wife, who was the garden coordinator,” Nantel said. “It was my wife’s idea to offer them out to all the members and community.” Important moments in the garden’s first year, including the building of the raised wooden garden boxes, the be-

ginning of the planting season and the constant watering that occurred during the dry summer months are all marked out on the pages of the calendar. Nantel is an avid photographer and he visited the garden nearly everyday, capturing images of it’s evolution. Located between the Brewer Swimming Pool and Westboro School, the garden features 13 plots for members, five donation plots, as well as space for a children’s garden. Plans to build the community garden at the park were announced in January 2012 and Nantel said funding came late, meaning volunteers worked many hours to make sure they didn’t miss out on the season. “It was a lot of work, but we are very pleased, and there are plans to expand it,” he said. Both Nantel and his wife love to garden, but it was while

living in Montreal, where they participated in a community garden, that he said they found true value in working alongside neighbours. “A community garden brings people together: you can share tips and there are a lot of people who don’t have the right place to grow so having a public space is optimal,” Nantel said. “It was also a great use of parkland that was being under-used.” The Brewer Park community garden currently has a waiting list for garden boxes, something Nantel said the group plans to address this coming season with the addition of a few more boxes. The goal is to one day have a total of 55 boxes. Free copies of the calendar are available at or individuals can order a printed copy for $25.

Glebe Annex organizing first association meeting Constitution, name, board members to be discussed Michelle Nash

EMC news - Residents of the Glebe Annex neighbourhood are taking the next steps toward forming a community association, with plans to hold a meeting early next month. Located to the northwest of the Glebe, the annex has been represented informally by the Glebe Community Association or the Dalhousie Community Association in the past, but some residents felt it was time for the neighbourhood to take control of its own future. The first meeting about the new association will be held at the Glebe Community Centre, 175 Third Ave. on Feb. 6. Organizing the event are Sue Stefko, Peggy Kampouris and Sylvia Milne, who said the continuing concerns about development and other issues drove some community members to mobilize. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Development is number one, but traffic, safety and security, environmental con-

Avenue was the catalyst that got the wheels in motion towards forming the new association. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We needed our own association. There are a few issues with development that need our attention,â&#x20AC;? Milne said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As well, there is no place for us to hold a public meeting and no parks where people can go to play, we need something.â&#x20AC;? When it comes to this particular development at Cambridge and Bronson, Milne said concerns over lack of parkland or providing a public space for the neighbourhood are definitely things the group hopes to make known. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think when a developer submits a plan there should be some consideration for where a public space should go,â&#x20AC;? she said. After word was circulated late last year that some resi-

dents in the annex were interested in forming an association, Milne said the three women received many emails and calls from other interested residents, and there are now seven people helping organize the first meeting. To get the word out, Milne said flyers have been distributed around the neighbourhood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The flyers will help us determine the number of residences in the annex,â&#x20AC;? she said. Milne used to live in Kanata, during which time she and her husband were very active in their local community association. She said she has found that starting up this neighbourhood association has brought back all those memories. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m loving this. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m meeting more people everyday who are enthusiastic and smart, people who are in-

terested in doing something positive in this community,â&#x20AC;? Milne said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It feels so good to be moving forward and meeting people who all think the same way.â&#x20AC;? Capital Coun. David Chernushenko has also said he will attend the meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The councillor has been very supportive of us,â&#x20AC;? she said. The goal for the February meeting is to reach out to residents and let them know what is going on, how they can get involved and that from this point on, there will be an association representing their concerns at city hall. The agenda will include a decision on the associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s official name, the election of an executive committee and the drafting of a constitution. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at the community centre.

Future guide dogs look for happy homes Foster parents needed for new puppies Emma Jackson

EMC news - If the goal is to socialize Franklin the puppy to become a calm, wellbehaved guide dog, there’s no better place for it than Donna Martin’s home. Between Cody the cockatoo’s squawks for attention, Tutu the parrot’s cheeky hellos, Poppy canary’s chirping and the yips and yaps of dog duo Pepper and Buddy, Franklin is surrounded by furry and feathered friends - and their noise - all day long. In Martin’s Manotick home, a certain level of chaos and noise is expected “when you live in a zoo,” she said. But fostering the eight-weekold yellow Labrador retriever brought a whole new level of commitment on Jan. 11. “It is a lot of work,” she said. “If anyone has had a baby, an infant, you’ll know exactly what it’s like. When he’s awake, you’re spending your time teaching him.” Despite her menagerie, Martin seems to have plenty of love to go around. Taking Franklin out for a bathroom break after lunch, her encouraging calls of “Good getting busy!” fill the wooded backyard. Martin is one of many foster parents raising puppies to become guide dogs for people with visual impairments. A new litter of retrievers was born in November, and the Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind in Manotick is looking for foster homes in eastern Ontario to raise the puppies for up to 18 months. Foster families are required to train the dogs using specific commands so they are consistently prepared for formal guide dog training, and to

help the dog become a social, well-adapted dog. “They’re raising a good dog,” said Guide Dogs spokesperson Steven Doucette. Doucette said the foster home job is not for everyone. At least one person in the household must have the time to be with the puppy virtually 24 hours a day and everyone must commit to the training regimen the organization requires.

I’m going to put my emotions and effort into making sure he’s socialized so I can send him off and know he’ll be helping somebody. DONNA MARTIN GUIDE DOG TRAINER

“Some families look at it as a perfect volunteer job and some see it as a trial run,” Doucette said. “Others do it really for the cause.” Martin, without question, does it for the cause. She has wanted to foster a guide dog puppy for a long time, but couldn’t because the organization required a fenced-in back yard, she said. As soon as she heard the restriction was lifted, she put her name on the foster parent list. Her compassion for people with visual impairments was instilled in her at an early age, by a father who wore “coke bottle glasses” and was extremely myopic. “He stressed the importance of eyes to me,” Martin said. As a teen, she used to close her eyes and walk through the house to see what it would

feel like to be blind. A week into fostering Franklin, Martin knows it will be hard to give him up when he leaves for training school. “I know I’m going to be very sad,” she said. “I’m going to become attached. I know I am. But he’s not my dog.” Knowing you’ll have to give the dog up at the end of the foster period doesn’t necessarily make it easier, Doucette agreed. “It’s still going to be a little bit heartbreaking and emotional,” he said. “A lot of people will compare it to sending a child off to school, raising kids and knowing they’ll eventually leave the house.” Nevertheless, Doucette said the foster program can be very rewarding for those who are accepted to take a puppy. Guide Dog trainers will visit at least once a month to check on the puppy’s progress. Foster families require access to a vehicle for veterinary appointments and training sessions, but all food and veterinary expenses are covered. Of course, support staff is on hand at the Manotickbased Guide Dog headquarters for advice as well. “They give you a fantastic amount of support,” Martin said. And despite the anguish of the eventual goodbye, Martin said she’ll feel happy knowing Franklin is heading off to do good work. “I’m going to put my emotions and effort into making sure he’s socialized so I can send him off and know he’ll be helping somebody.” For more information, contact Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind at info@guidedogs. ca or 613-692-7777.


Franklin the yellow Labrador retriever cuddles with his foster mom, Donna Martin, at his foster home in Manotick. The eight-week-old puppy will live with Martin for up to 18 months before heading off for guide dog training. Below, Franklin enjoys his lunch.

EMC news - A new program in Manor Park is encouraging girls to lace up their sneakers for a good cause. The Manor Park Community Council has launched a new program for girls in grades 3 to 5 called Girls on the Run. The 10-week program teaches participants how to run a five kilometre race, all while raising money for the Girls on the Run charity. Lana Burpee, the council’s executive director, said it was nearly two years ago that she first contacted Girls on the Run, looking to find out if there was a way for Manor Park to participate. At the time, the organization wasn’t yet ready to expand and it wasn’t until this past fall that the organization contacted Burpee, who jumped at the chance to join in. “We do a lot of sport programs and we began to notice that girls start to participate less around age 12,” she said. “We have tried a number of things to keep girls interest-

ed, included making things girls only with little success, but this program has both a classroom component and a physical one. It was a perfect combination.” Burpee added the council liked that the program aims to develop positive physical, mental, emotional and social skills for the girls. “It delivers something that has been practiced and tested so that we can use it in our community successfully,” Burpee said.

This is something that everyone can do and the only person stopping you from running is yourself. BARBARA SPANTON, COACH

Once they were on board with the program, all that was needed was to find some volunteer coaches. Burpee said they put a call out to residents in Manor Park and received a number of responses, eventually settling on a pair of coaches. Barbara Spanton will be one of those coaches and said she is looking forward to motivating the young girls. “I didn’t start running until my mid-20s,” she said. “I

thought that was for track athletes, but really if you look outside, you will see everyone in every shape and sizes running.” Spanton hopes girls who have never run before sign up, because she truly feels this could be a turning point in their lives. “This is something that everyone can do and the only person stopping you from running is yourself, and you may not get to your goal all at once, but that is why you have 10 weeks to get there,” Spanton said. This year will be the first for Girls on the Run operating in Ottawa, and the girls participating in the program will participate in another charity event, Emilie’s Run, on June 22. Burpee said the program is accepting close to 30 applicants, but if more apply she said the council would do their best to accommodate everyone. The program runs from April 16 to June 20 every Tuesday and Thursday at Manor Park Public School. A registration fee of $139 applies to this program, with all proceeds going towards the charity. Interested girls can register starting Feb. 4 through the Manor Park Community Council’s website at www.


Girls on the Run members are shown taking part in an event in Toronto in an undated photo. The Manor Park Community Council is bringing the program for grades 3 to 5 girls to Ottawa this year.

Heritage garden may be coming to Vanier Residents work at restoring beauty of Gamman House Michelle Nash

EMC news - This summer, the only designated heritage home in Vanier could become a little more beautiful thanks to the efforts of a few dedicated gardeners. The Gamman House, located at 306 Cyr Ave. was ďŹ rst built in the 1800s by Nathaniel Gamman, a city councillor and as it turns out, an avid gardener. The history of the little house is storied: from Gamman making ends meet by selling produce grown in the garden at the ByWard Market to the owners who took over in the 1920s who kept the ďŹ&#x201A;owers blooming and vegetables sprouting. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until the former city of Vanier -- and later the City of Ottawa -- took over the property that the grounds were left fallow. Now a small group of heritage enthusiasts aim to change that. Ken Clavette and Anne Prowse want to bring a little colour back to Cyr Avenue and on Jan. 15 the two reached out to the Vanier BeautiďŹ cation Group for a little help to bring back the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heritage garden. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We think this property is

special to this community and the community should celebrate it,â&#x20AC;? Clavette said. The lot is large, with room for two or three different types of gardens. Members of the beautiďŹ cation group were interested in what is planned for the space. Prowse explained plans are currently up in the air until a Gamman House garden committee is formed.

The one thing we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have is a fragrant floral garden where people can go to sit and read. GEOFF DERRY RESIDENT

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are looking for a group willing to create a heritage garden,â&#x20AC;? Prowse said. According to Clavette and Prowse, there is funding available from the city for this project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As it stands now, the city will just do what is easiest for them to do to maintain the property, we hope this funding and volunteers can change

that,â&#x20AC;? Clavette said. Tina Delaney, co-chairwoman of the beautiďŹ cation group, said they loved the idea. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I certainly think we can commit to something,â&#x20AC;? Delaney said. Fellow resident Geoff Derry suggested the garden become a ďŹ&#x201A;oral garden, with a space for residents to visit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The one thing we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have is a fragrant ďŹ&#x201A;oral garden where people can go to sit and read,â&#x20AC;? Derry said. Clavette loved the idea, adding he always dreamed the garden would become a place where wedding photos could be taken or garden parties could be held. Once the Workerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Heritage Centre, the Gamman House has seen a revival lately. The house will become a new space for local artists to hang their work and starting in March, the house will offer a new cultural space for First Nations, Inuit and MĂŠtis artists with two six-month occupancies per year. The next step for the heritage garden plans will be to hold a general meeting for residents interested in volunteering. People are invited to email Clavette and Prowse at for more information.


Pearl Denison shows off the front garden at Gamman House in the 1960s. The heritage home in Vanier may see another great garden this summer as local residents look to recreate a space Denison would have been proud of.

Bringing the runway to Ottawa Heather Rochon

Rotarians for Wabano Campaign The Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health is a premier clinic and community centre providing health services and programs to a segment of Canadians who are lacking the care and support we all deserve. Wabano, located on Montreal Road in Quartier Vanier, is a leader in community-based holistic health care and bridges native cultural practices with western medicine to combat poverty and illness in Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s First People. Every year, over 10,000 Aboriginals and non-Aboriginals use Wabano services, and there is still a greater need. A new building will allow Wabano to improve its healthcare facility, expand its programs and serve more clients. Since its inception in 1998, it has proven to be a beacon of success, winning many local and national awards.

Have Rymar Insulation upgrade your attic for you. When you upgrade your insulation in your attic to R50 blown insulation, you can save up to 27% on your heating and cooling bill. With new government minimums, R50 (approx 18â&#x20AC;? of blown insulation) is now code. Most newer builds have between R34-R40, with some older homes having as little as R20 in the attic. Other beneďŹ ts to upgrading your attic insulation are creating greater home comfort and helping to raise the resale value of your home. Rymar insulation has been in business insulating homes and commercial buildings for the past 12 years. Rymar prides itself on upgrading attics in the Ottawa area and has a team of technical consultants that can assess and make the proper attic insulation recommendations.

Like other provincial health and community centres, Wabano is funded by the provincial government. Unlike other centres, Wabano has sought out partnerships, sponsorships and performs its own additional fundraising. Wabano is raising funds for its spectacular new building so that they can achieve even more. They are building a new legacy of native-driven care and support for Aboriginals. In the new building Wabano will be developing financially self-sufficient sections that will also serve as teaching and training centres for catering, events planning and fashion design. The new building is a $15 million project. Different levels of government are providing 1/3 of that and the remainder is being raised privately by Wabano. Rotarians for Wabano is a campaign to raise $1.5 million. All we need is 1,500 people to commit to donating $1,000 over 3 years â&#x20AC;&#x201D; less than $1/day!

Marguirite’s ruined hair has Northcote School buzzing


omething was amiss at the Northcote School. First of all, Marguirite sneaked in like she had just been caught with her hand in the cookie jar. She usually made a grand entrance so that everyone could get a good look at whatever fancy outfit she had worn that day, but not only did she come in just as Miss Crosby rang the nine o’clock bell, she wore a wool toque and made no move to take it off, even though hats in school were strictly forbidden. She went right up to Miss Crosby’s desk and whispered in her ear. Miss Crosby looked at the hat, made a great sigh and nodded towards Marguirite’s desk. Every eye was on the young girl who didn’t have a friend in the entire school as she meekly took her seat. Well, if that didn’t just tie it -- she was going to be allowed

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories to wear her hat in school. None of us would dare be so bold. Even the boys, the second they walked in the door, removed their caps and hung them on a hook at the back of the room. At recess Joyce, Velma and I got in a huddle to discuss this latest caper and none of us could imagine why Marguirite, who took such pride in her golden curls, would choose to hide them under a toque. We all knew Marguirite, who thought she was a dead ringer for Shirley Temple, got those curls from Ducharmes’ Beauty Parlour, and the gold-

en hair right out of a bottle of dye from Ritza’s Drug Store in Renfrew. Even the boys at school noticed the toque. Cecil made some snide remarks and jabbed Emerson in the ribs, but that day that’s about all the attention they gave to Marguirite. There were more important things to do at recess, like pouring water from the pump on the small square of ice behind the schoolhouse. Miss Crosby rang the bell and recess was over. When we went inside, Marguirite’s head was still covered. Well, it was lunch time, and we all knew it wouldn’t be long before either

Cecil or Emerson would get to the bottom of Marguirite’s hat. We were allowed to eat inside on winter days, but the second the last mouthful was down, we headed outside to play, either on the small patch of ice or on the excuse for a hill that the senior boys had built up by piling snow over the wood fence at the back of the yard. Out of the corner of my eye, I could see Emerson and Cecil whispering and the look they both had on their faces spelled trouble. In one fell-swoop, they tore past Marguirite, with Cecil making a dive for the toque. They never stopped running until they reached the patch of ice at the back of the schoolhouse. Meanwhile, Marguirite looked like she had been shot with a gun. She stood frozen on the spot, and finally, we could all see why the toque never left her head. Right down the back,

where there should have been a cascade of golden curls, was a streak of orange hair, and it was as straight as a stick. She clamped her hand over the spot and ran into the schoolhouse like someone possessed. Before our lunch hour was over, Miss Crosby rang the big brass bell and we knew Cecil and Emerson were in for it. They had no idea where they had dropped the toque. My youngest brother Earl was sent out to look for it. The two culprits, without asking, knew what was coming. Without even being asked, they went up to Miss Crosby’s desk and held out a hand. She brought the strap down with a thunder that could be heard in Admaston. They boys never flinched. They got far worse fighting each other in the back yard. Earl got the toque, covered with snow, and handed it to Marguirite, who by this time was crying great running

tears, wiping her eyes with one hand and covering the offending spot at the back of her head with the other. Marguirite always wanted everyone to believe she was born with golden hair and the curls to match. That day, everyone at school knew different, but the incident was soon forgotten and Marguirite’s mother must have made a fast trip into Renfrew, because when Marguirite walked into the classroom the next day, her head was a mass of golden curls. We had no idea how her mother got rid of the orange streak, but Joyce, Velma and I were pretty sure she had to cut it out with a pair of scissors. Joyce, the most kind hearted of the three of us thought we should all feel sorry for the girl, and maybe tell her so. But when we took a vote between the three of us, Joyce lost.

Irish stew warms up a cold winter day EMC lifestyle - Lamb shanks are easy to use and delicious; if unavailable, use thick shoulder chops. It’s better if made a day or two ahead. Lamb is fresh, lean, tender, mild and easy to cook. It’s an excellent source of protein, iron and B vitamins. Because lamb isn’t marbled like beef, health-conscious cooks can easily trim off the fat. Preparation Time: 30 minutes Cooking Time: three hours Servings: 8 INGREDIENTS

• 8 lamb shanks • Salt and pepper • 125 ml (1/2 cup) all-purpose flour • 25 ml (2 tbsp) olive oil • 4 cloves garlic, minced • 5 ml (1 tsp) each dried thyme

and rosemary • 2 bottles (341 mL each) stout-style beer • 750 ml (3 cups) beef broth • 50 ml (1/4 cup) butter • 45 ml (3 tbsp) packed brown sugar • 3 onions, cut into wedges • 3 each carrots and parsnips, cut into 2.5-cm (1-inch) pieces • 1/2 rutabaga, cut into 2.5-cm (1-inch) wedges • 50 ml (1/4 cup) chopped fresh parsley PREPARATION

Season the lamb shanks with salt and pepper then coat with flour. In a large ovenproof casserole, heat half of the oil over mediumhigh heat. In batches, brown the lamb, adding more oil as needed. Remove to a plate. Stir in any remaining flour

along with the garlic, thyme and rosemary. Stir over medium heat for one minute. Remove from heat and gradually stir in the beer. Bring to boil, scraping up any brown bits. Boil for five minutes, stirring often. Stir in 500 ml (2 cups) of broth. Return lamb to the pan and bring to boil. Cover and bake in 180 C (350 F) oven for 1.5 hours. Meanwhile in skillet, melt butter and sugar over medium heat. Stir in the vegetables and season with salt and pepper. Add remaining broth and bring to boil. Add to the lamb, cover and bake in 180 C (350 F) oven for another 1.25 hours or until lamb and vegetables are tender. Sprinkle with parsley to serve.

After the holiday flurry, hurry to reconsider home insurance EMC news - A sparkling new ring, the latest smartphone, a new flat-screen TV – after the gift-giving excitement of the holidays is over, you may find your home filled with more goodies than before. As you clean up the wrapping paper and pack up the decorations, don’t forget to review your home or tenant insurance policy to ensure your new gifts are covered. Dave Minor, the vice president of TD Insurance, offers his top tips for ensuring your new valuables are protected: • New ring? Insure that bling. The holidays are a popular time to pop the question, but many blissful couples may be unaware that the sparkly new ring may not be covered under their existing home or renter’s insurance policy. Speak to your insurance provider to find out how much your household jewellery coverage covers. You may want to consider extended coverage if some new diamonds or even an expensive watch has taken you over this limit. • Update your inventory of belongings. Making a list and taking photos of your valuables can help make it easier if you have to make a claim.

S 50% A 90% V E

Don’t forget to include serial numbers and the date each item was purchased. • Consider a security upgrade. Did you know that installing extra security measures like security alarms may decrease your insurance premium? Deadbolt locks and automatic timers on your lights can also contribute greatly to protecting your home. Talk to

User fees on the rise at Parks Canada sites Canal fees altered after backlash Emma Jackson

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Parks were created and built for Canadians to enjoy the beauty of their country,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And that meant all Canadians. As time has moved on, whether it is campground sites or golf courses in national parks, the prices are now out of the range of ordinary Canadians. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re making it difďŹ cult for ordinary Canadians to see our own country.â&#x20AC;? Munson said he understands and supports the need to charge a reasonable fee to use the sites, but said it has to be kept within reason â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and if the shortfall comes out of the taxpayerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pocket, so be it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a lot of things that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m paying for here as a taxpayer that I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a beneďŹ t from,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are public lands ... that should be accessible to the entire public.â&#x20AC;? Campbell said national historic sites will still only cost $10 per adult to visit â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a minor fee compared to other leisure activities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to a movie for $10,â&#x20AC;? Campbell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For a great day out itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to think of anything thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a better value.â&#x20AC;? Munson said the proposed


Parks Canada is looking for public feedback on a new fee structure that could triple lockage fees on the Rideau Canal. fees, particularly for canals, will deter Canadians from using them, not encourage them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is just going to drain the canal of boaters and thus will hurt our local economy,â&#x20AC;? said Munson, who feels so strongly about the waterway his Senate designation is listed as serving Ottawa-Rideau Canal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one thing to say itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to help out the department and its deďŹ cit, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a simplistic approach. What does it do for the local economy from here to Kingston? This is a lifeline between two historic cities.â&#x20AC;? According to Parks Canada, the department has over 3,300 fees for services like park and

site entry, camping, interpretive programs, boat lockage and facility rentals. Revenues are invested in the sites to help pay for the services and facilities that visitors use. However, the expense of providing services to visitors continues to increase as a result of higher energy and other operational costs, a Parks Canada statement said. Currently, revenues from canal lockage fees are equal to 9.6 per cent of the cost of operation. Comparatively, other Parks Canada sites recover about 35 per cent of their operational costs. Parks Canada is proposing that future fee adjustments take place in accordance with

the consumer price index â&#x20AC;&#x153;in order to respond to annual inďŹ&#x201A;ationary operational costs.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most fees will be limited to an adjustment not exceeding the two-year cumulative percentage of the average consumer price index,â&#x20AC;? the statement said. This would occur in two-year intervals thereafter, beginning in 2013.â&#x20AC;? A new fee structure would apply for recreational users beginning April 1, 2013. New fees for commercial operators would apply in April 2014. Full details can be found at Members of the public can email or mail their feedback to Parks Canada before Feb. 18.


EMC news - Parks Canada is looking for public feedback on a new fee structure that could greatly increase lockage fees on the Rideau Canal. On Jan. 11, the federal department announced a set of new user fees that would replace prices frozen since 2008. The proposed changes include standardized fees for mooring, facility rentals, programming and using the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s canal systems. Currently, it costs $0.90 per foot for a boat to travel both ways through a lock on the Rideau Canal, or $1.60 per foot for a day pass. A seasonal pass is $8.80 per foot. The new fee structure requires boaters to buy individual tickets to travel through the locks. Tickets cost $0.30 per foot, and boaters need at least two tickets to go through any lock in one direction. It takes two tickets to pass a low-elevation

single lock and three to pass a single or multi-lock chamber at medium elevation. It will cost four tickets to pass through any multi-lock chamber at high elevation. That means owners of a 25foot boat would be charged $7.50 per ticket, costing between $15 and $30 each time they go through a lockstation in any direction. A six-day pass now costs $7.20 per foot, up from $5.05. A seasonal pass, currently $8.80 per foot, will increase to $15 per foot. Parks Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vice president of visitor experiences Andrew Campbell said boaters and commercial operators made it clear immediately that the seasonal and six-day passes were useful, and Parks Canada added them back to the proposed fee schedule after the initial announcement. Campbell said the proposed fee hikes are necessary to offset the $18.5 million taxpayers are shelling out every year just to operate boating services on Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s canals. Senator Jim Munson, however, said taxpayers should bear some burden for the treasures under Parks Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s charge, because they are for all Canadians to use.

Think ahead for OSCA board election Laura Mueller There are around 18 positions on the board and the annual turnover is usually about 10 per cent, so association president Michael Jenkins expects to be looking to ďŹ ll at least two seats on the board this May. There may be fewer changes this year because close to half the current board members are new, having been elected in May of 2012. Whether you want to seek a

board position or not, now is a good time to check in with the community association and follow neighbourhood issues in the lead-up to the annual general meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We always encourage people to come out to the AGM and to join the board and committees,â&#x20AC;? Jenkins said. Community association secretary Michaela Tokarski highlighted a particular need for a new special events co-ordinator â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a role thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s currently

inďŹ&#x201A;ammatory.â&#x20AC;? While Zador said he agreed with some of the points made in the letter, the language unnecessarily called into question the integrity of city planning staff. Zador said he is encouraged to hear that the community association and its planning watchdog group, OSWatch, are considering adopting a more engaging, positive approach to looking at what the community would like to see, rather than reacting and complaining about issues the community association sees as problems.


EMC news - The annual general meeting of the Ottawa South Community Association isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until May 7, but the time to start thinking about becoming a board member has already arrived. The association wants to remind residents and business people in the neighbourhood that they will need to sign up as a member soon if they are

thinking about seeking a seat on the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board of directors. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because potential board members must be â&#x20AC;&#x153;members in good standingâ&#x20AC;? of the community association for at least three months before the annual general meeting if they would like to be considered for a position. Becoming a member is free and those interested in joining the association can do so online by visiting oldottawa-

ďŹ lled by the associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paid staff person, executive director Christy Savage. There is already one vacancy on the board after Greg Zador resigned because he disagreed with the wording of a letter regarding planning issues in the city that was spearheaded by Jay Baltz of the Hintonburg Community Association and the Federation of Citizens Associations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I found myself at odds with some positions the board was taking, particularly related to the language,â&#x20AC;?

Art for the heart Annual show to raise funds for Ottawa Heart Institute Jennifer McIntosh

EMC news - The heart of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art community appears to be growing. An annual fundraiser for the Ottawa Heart Institute has grown out of its home at the Barrhaven Legion. Art for the Heart â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a fundraiser started by a group of nine local artists â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will be held at the Cedarhill Golf and Country Club on Feb. 3 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The event is in its third year and will host 21 artists from across the city said organizer Sylvia Summers-Martyn. Artists are coming from far and wide to sell their wares and help out a good cause. John Shea hails from Westport and portrays local heritage buildings in and around the Rideau lakes area. Jill Alexander, who lives in Arnprior, works in acrylic and mixed media to depict hockey players. Ann Gruchy from North Gower will also be there to show off some of her watercolours. Judi Miller, a textile artist from Kanata and a member of the Art for the Heart organizing committee, said a major selling point is that artists

can donate a percentage of the commission for the piece rather than the piece itself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a win-win,â&#x20AC;? she said. There is no cost for admission to the show and artists donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of their art to the heart institute. Volunteers for the institute will be on hand during the show to hand out information pamphlets and collect donations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we will top what we have fundraised in previous years simply because this is the biggest one yet,â&#x20AC;? said Summers-Martyn, who began taking applications for exhibitors at last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are starting to put Art for the Heart on the calendars,â&#x20AC;? she said. The group of artist organizers began work on this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event in the summer and quickly realized the space at the Barrhaven Legion â&#x20AC;&#x201C; where the last two shows were held â&#x20AC;&#x201C; wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hold them this year. While Summers-Martyn said she appreciated the past support of the Legion, she said the new space has a lot of perks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of parking, it is very accessible and they can have the Sunday breakfast while they are out at the show,â&#x20AC;? she said.

No one to blame for sinkhole: report Laura Mueller


Helping hands The U.S. ambassador David Jacobson, second right, and U.S. embassy staff woke up early on a Saturday morning to help the Ottawa Food Bank sort and process food for families. Jan. 19 in the U.S. was declared the National Day of Service by President Barack Obama, in connection with inaugural weekend and the Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, Jan. 21. Jacobson, his wife Julie and around 15 staff members and some of their children spent their morning learning about what the food bank does and how volunteers sort, package and load food baskets.


Steve Burns, an engineer who investigated the collapse of a sewer pipe under highway 174, after presenting his report to the committee on Jan. 15.Monette after presenting his report to the committee on Jan. 15. and the type of materials it was made from. The pipe was actually installed by a developer, but transferred onto the books of the former city of Gloucester. The incident triggered a new approach to how the city manages and repairs its infrastructure such as pipes, roads and bridges. That includes a more riskbased approach that will tell city officials how likely failure of the infrastructure is and what the consequences of its failure would be. In hindsight, McRae said the city should have approached it that way all along. “Looking back, yes, I wish we did it differently,” she said. One of the main things is ensuring the city’s inventory and records are up to date and accurate. “We won’t have pipes in our inventory that don’t reflect what is in the field,” said Nancy Schepers, deputy city manager. The changes the city has made are heading in the right direction to implement the five recommendations in his report, Burns said.



EMC news - The city can’t point a finger at any one person or factor for causing a sinkhole in highway 174 last September. City manager Kent Kirkpatrick said no city staff members will be disciplined in the wake of an independent engineering report into the incident. “We can’t point the finger at one person,” said Maria McRae, environment committee chairwoman. “It’s a matter of tightening up our processes.” The independent engineer, Steve Burns of BMRoss, found that a number of factors contributed to the collapse of a sewer pipe under the Jean D’Arc offramp on Sept. 13, 2012. The pipe was set to be replaced through a process called relining and staff from a contractor hired to complete the project were in the pipe doing preparatory work shortly before the sewer collapsed, creating a gaping hole in the pavement that swallowed a car. Those preparations likely triggered the collapse, but the pipe was already in disrepair so the contractor’s work didn’t actually cause the sinkhole, Burns said. “(The contractor’s) activities triggered it. That’s an opinion – we can’t be sure,” Burns said following a Jan. 15 meeting of the city’s environment committee. The committee received Burns’ report as information. He traced the city’s mistake back to a video inspection of the pipe from August 2011 that showed its deteriorated condition. Burns said the city should have immediately undertaken a visual inspection of the pipe to see just how bad it was. The issue was further confused because of incomplete and inaccurate records about the pipe’s installation

Grant helps to strengthen communities Jennifer McIntosh

EMC news - A grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation will help to provide programming for single parents, at-risk youth and seniors. The $122,000 grant was presented to the Social Planning Council of Ottawa and Jewish Family Services at the family services office on Carling Avenue on Jan. 15. The monies will be provided over two years to help with mentoring and support to Ottawa Somaliland community services, Canada Nepal Solidarity for Peace, Cooperation Integration Canada, La Coopérative Enseignants Pas à Pas and the Shia Moslem community. The grant will also provide seed funding to implement new programs for at-risk youth and single parents in Ottawa. Jewish Family Services director Mark Zarecki said the two larger agencies could provide support in the setting up of boards and volunteer management. “This is a great chance for us to work with smaller agencies in a way we haven’t been able to before,” Zarecki said, adding that another Trillium grant has helped increase revenues from their counselling services, allowing them to provide better services to low-

income clients that can’t pay the fees. “Any time we get Trillium funding it helps us to attain program goals,” he said. Bob Chiarelli, the MPP for Ottawa West-Nepean, made the announcement and said the organizations working in Ottawa’s communities are the glue that holds the city together. “I am pleased that with the help of this funding, our community partners will be able to enhance their services and continue to offer high-quality programs for families in Ottawa,” he said.

I hope the partnership continues and we make a better city. HOWARD COHN SOCIAL PLANNING COUNCIL OF OTTAWA

Sherry Franklin, a representative of the Ontario Trillium Foundation, said the foundation gives out $120 million annually to projects that make better and more vibrant communities. Howard Cohen, from the Social Planning Council of Ottawa said the money will help new immigrants and teachers. “I hope the partnership continues and we make a better city,” he said.

Pet Adoptions


Duke is a neutered male, tricolour, Blue Tick and Walker Hound mix. The staff at the Ottawa Humane Society think he is about 5 years old. Duke was brought it to the OHS as a stray, and has been a beloved resident for just over 5 months now. He is patiently waiting for his forever home. Duke is a laid back fella, just looking for some extra attention from people who love him. He loves to discover new things by going on long walks, and would love a bed to call his own after his regular outings. He’s a little stubborn, and wants things done his way so a house with kids over the age of 8 would be better for him. Duke is available as a ‘Special Needs’ adoption due to possible food allergies, which may need some veterinary guidance to sort out.

The average cost of canine sterilization at a vet clinic is $350.00 while feline sterilization costs and average of $250.00. In the end, adopting a pet from the OHS offers great savings! The OHS adoption prices are: $290 for dogs older than six months, $350 for puppies and small breeds; $170 for cats older than six months, $225 for kittens. It’s the best deal around! OHS dogs receive a temperament assessment prior to being placed for adoption. This translates into much needed information about the dog in order to make the best possible match between the potential adopter and the canine, for a successful and permanent placement. All animals receive a routine health check by OHS veterinary staff prior to adoption. The first vaccination is given and if the animal is within our system for any extended period of time, they will receive a booster (second vaccination). All animals are implanted with a microchip (a permanent form of identification) prior to being adopted, and are automatically enrolled with pet insurance for six weeks of free coverage, effective 48 hours post-adoption.

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

My name is Jasmine, and I am a 7 month old parti poodle, with our other, much older standard poodle Riley to play with whenever. My owners love me very much it seems as they’ve taught me to sit, and whenever I do they hand out tasty rewards. I love to sit! They are so warm, and when they are sitting I lean against them and on their socks, and we all get warm. Going for walks in Britannia Village is a bark and a hoot with so many other dogs and their owners to sniff and greet. My favourite thing to do is leaping through the snow in our big back yard.

Why doesn’t the Ottawa Humane Society (OHS) give away dogs, cats, and other pets for free? At first this may seem like a great idea: free pets means more families will be able to afford a homeless animal. However, having a pet costs money. A free kitten from a friend of a friend is hard to resist. However, that kitten needs to be health checked by your veterinarian, dewormed, vaccinated, and spayed. A free puppy from the newspaper or an online ad needs the same. How much are you really saving? The year one initial costs sterilization, vaccination, deworming, etc. will cost more than $600 for a kitten, plus approximately $900 in yearly ongoing costs that include food, litter, grooming and boarding. Sadly, many people are uninformed of these costs and many “free” animals end up being surrendered to the humane society. In fact, more than 7,000 cats end up at the Ottawa Humane Society every year. Thirty-five percent of them are believed to have been acquired either from a friend or relative or from some form of “free to good home.” At the OHS, a health check, initial deworming and vaccination, sterilization (spay or neuter) a permanent microchip identification and pet insurance for 6 weeks is included in the dog and cat
