EMC sports – Ottawa will host nine Federation of International Football Association Women’s World Cup matches, including a quarterfinal game, the association announced on March 21. Fans can now mark their calendars with the world’s largest women’s football tournament, which will dominate the Canadian landscape from June 6 to July 5, 2015. “As the largest single sports event for women in the world, and the first single sport event in Canada, we are excited to host the FIFA Women’s World Cup”, Mayor Jim Watson said in a statement. “Ottawa is once again the stage for a major sporting event that will attract the eyes of the world.” For the first time, the 2015 tournament will welcome 24 teams from around the world, a milestone in women’s soccer as the game continues to grow in all regions of the globe. Ottawa will host two World Cup games on June 7, two on June 11 and two on June 17. See OTTAWA, page 4

EMC news - The city is cracking down on messy donation bins that appear to be collecting clothes for charity, but are actually run by businesses. Bins on private property will have to display whether the operator is a registered charity, (along with the registration number), a non-profit organiza-

tion or a for-profit business, under a proposal that will be voted on by council on March 27. The sign will also have to display contact information for the operator, as well as the pickup schedule. There will also be rules to ensure the property owner keeps the area surrounding the bin clean and debris free. “This is a very good, made-in-Ottawa solution to a problem,” said Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley,

who asked the city to tackle the issue. “We’re getting what I wanted out of this, which is residents having the information so they can make an informed decision about where to donate, and also for property owners before they make a decision to take a box. These people will have to tell them upfront where the clothes are going.” Other Ontario municipalities, including Hamilton, have expressed interest in following Ottawa’s lead in regulating donation bins.

The city may soon require clothing donation bins to be kept tidy and display information how the money raised by sale of the items will be used – either for charity or for profit.

Last spring, city council decided it would only allow bins on city property if the operator is a registered charitable operation. They are required to get a licence agreement from the city. Hubley began his campaign to tackle the issue in the first year of his term in 2011. At that time, the Jubilee Donations bins – especially one at Jack Charron Arena – were of particular concern to his residents, Hubley said, because they are not emptied regularly and it’s not clear if Jubilee is a registered charity. Hubley said he called the phone number listed on the box and determined that Jubilee is a storage company. “This is like storage wars. They are coming and taking these clothes, putting them in storage lockers and auctioning them off for their own profit. There is no benefit to the community,” he said.

Bags of clothes that are left to pile up around the untended donation boxes are sometimes torn open. “So it becomes a burden on the employees of the city to have to clean this thing up,” Hubley said. The bins sometimes attract thieves who try to break into them, according to the city report. There are also issues with bins blocking sightlines and creating safety hazards for traffic or undesirable activity. There are benefits to the bins, a city report says. They divert unwanted clothes from landfills and they sometimes assist charitable efforts. Sending city staff to remove bins that aren’t allowed could ramp up city staff costs so it’s not recommended. While it could be offset by the fee associated with donation-bin licences, there are also issues of perceived interference, the staff report says. The new bylaw will come into effect June 3 if it gets council’s approval this week.

Roberta Bondar students create Rube Goldberg machines Eddie Rwema

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Grade 7 student Logan Jones has always wanted to be come an engi-

neer but had never been excited about it until he became involved in creating a large Rube Goldberg. The Roberta Bondar Public School student and other

Grade 7 and 8 students spent the past three weeks working to create their own Rube Goldberg gadgets that were displayed at the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gym stage on March 20.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have always liked building things and when the teacher offered us the opportunity, I thought it was going to be a lot of fun, and it is by far the most fun and challenging school project I have ever got to make,â&#x20AC;? said Jones. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was really nice but a little frustrating because the chances of it working are very low and it is hard to set up everything so it can work, but overall it was a wonderful experience.â&#x20AC;? Goldberg was an American cartoonist and inventor who is best known for a series of popular cartoons depicting complex gadgets that perform simple tasks in indirect, convoluted ways. He is the inspiration for various international competitions, known as Rube Goldberg Machine Contests, which challenge participants to make a complex machine to perform a simple task. Grade 7 science teacher James Fournier said he chose the project because it is a great way of exploring the construction of structures. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are numerous machines involved and I thought that it would be a great

hands on and interesting way of studying science,â&#x20AC;? said Fournier. Popular games such as the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;60â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s era board game have been inspired by Goldbergâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s creations. At the beginning, some of the students were reluctant to be part of the project because of its complexity but slowly found themselves very much into it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whether or not it works has little to do with how they are evaluated but they are interestingly motivated to see it work,â&#x20AC;? said Fournier. Grade 8 Olivia Buth said the project exposed them to teamwork and problem-solving. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Having your creation to connect with other peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and having such a low probability of everything working, just makes it so intense and complicated. It was interesting to learn how things trigger other things and how they all react to forces, she said Teacher Fournier said all Rube Goldbergs are designed to complete a very simple task in the most complicated way possible. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is an attempt to make

science interesting to 12 to 14 year olds,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want them to learn how to find wonder in science and to discover problem solving skills and to be able look at an issue and work to solve it.â&#x20AC;? Fournier said the project invoked a lot of excitement within the school community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of the complexity was generated by the students themselves. I sent out the parameters of what the task was going to be, what the goal for each segment was and it was up to them to find the most complicated way of doing it,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each group had to be activated by one and activate another and how they did that was up to them. Its been an activity that brought in all sorts of individual ideas. Every one was competitive in terms of trying to make their part great, but in the end we are all trying to make this all thing work together.â&#x20AC;? At the end of it, he hopes some students will be inspired to become engineers or at the very least be scientists in their thinking.

Farm Boy opens new store at Train Yards complex Fresh is best. Fresh is best. That’s what the multitude of shoppers were telling themselves as they rolled their carts through the aisles of the new Farm Boy Saturday, March 14. Located at the Ottawa Train Yards shopping complex, 665 Industrial Ave., the 22,000 square-foot food retailer hosted its official opening that day, celebrating with a tasty array of samples fresh from the kitchen, and in-store specials. To add to the familyfriendly atmosphere, appearances from Crash the Clown and mascot Lulu the Cow brought smiles to the faces of the many youngsters accompanying their parents to the store. “It’s fantastic,” noted store manager Gerry Kupferschmidt amid the hustle and bustle of opening day. “I couldn’t ask for better. The customers are glad we’re in the community.” He highlighted the new steam table and incredible 24-foot salad bar, complete with more than 60 items ranging from the selection of greens to the freshly-cut vegetables and toppings like real bacon, shredded cheeses, beans or nuts. There’s even AAA beef or grilled chicken breast. Put one together for yourself or the family, each will be your own tasty creation. Based on the steady stream of customers making their way to the store, the Alta Vista community was clearly hungry for this new Farm Boy, so well known across the region for offering top quality produce with friendly customer service. In an effort to cater to the fast-paced world

Healthy and nutritious hot meals are available from the bustling Kitchen at the Farm Boy, located at the Train Yards shopping complex.

in which we live, Farm Boy Train Yards offers a delectable choice of prepared foods, healthy meals that are ready to go. The instore kitchen is kept hopping, turning out handmade sandwiches, half and full-rack rib dinners, pizzas and calzones and so much more, all made fresh every day. And for those who do have a little time to relax while they shop, enjoy a hot cup of coffee or tea along with a baked treat in the new seating area. “We’re showcasing what people love Farm Boy for,” says Kupferschmidt. So much more than a grocery store, Farm Boy offers customers a unique shopping q experience, a key reason why it continues to add new stores across eastern Ontario.

Cashier Camila Namer is all smiles as she serves customers samples of Farm Boy tortilla chips, salsa and guacamole.

The city will also host two roundof-16 matches on June 20 and June 22 and a quarterfinal on June 26. John Pugh, president of the Ottawa Fury Football Club, Ottawa’s North American Soccer League franchise, said soccer fans and the country are looking forward to the competition. “Our women were a great success at the Olympics and that captured the nation’s excitement and definitely this event is going to be an amazing one,” said Pugh. “If we all enjoyed the 2007 U-20 men’s event, this is going to be the same as that, but magnified many times over because of the number of teams that are participating.” He said he hopes Team Canada can win on home soil. The games will be played at the new Lansdowne Park stadium. In a release, Noel Buckley, president and CEO of Ottawa Tourism said the event is a great opportunity to showcase Ottawa to the world. “Hosting nine regular games and a quarterfinal game in a newly built stadium at Lansdowne Park will not just be a major economic boost to the region, it will inspire the next generation of local soccer players to pursue this exciting sport.” The competition will kick off with the opening ceremony and opening

matches in Edmonton. In total, 52 matches will be played over 30 days from coast to coast in six venues. The final match will be played in Vancouver. The qualification matches will begin in April. As host country, Canada will not play qualification games. Team Canada coach John Herdman is optimistic his team put on a great show. “Being in Canada, the whole set of play is going to give us a competitive advantage,” he said. But to do well, the team will rely on support from the home crowd, he added. He said the event provides a once –in-a-lifetime opportunity for the players. “What you hear from the players - the ones that understand what this means is, they want to do everything they can to leave the best impression possible for everyone in Canada,” said Herdman. Canada finished without a win in the 2011 World Cup. The national organizing committee announced that the highly sought-after tickets will go on sale in the third quarter of 2014.

The Carleton’s men’s basketball team joined fellow students to celebrate their record-breaking ninth CIS championship. University president Roseann O’Reilly Runte and Lee Versage from the Team 1200 spoke before the players were introduced.

Carleton students gather to celebrate CIS championship Tyler Costello

EMC sports – The Carleton Ravens men’s basketball team joined their fellow students in the university’s food court on March 20 to celebrate the team’s record-breaking ninth national championship. Rodney the Raven and the Raven’s Rhythm, Carleton’s mascot and cheerleading squad, were on hand to pump up the cafeteria full of students before speakers took the stage. “When you watch this Carleton basketball team play, you marvel at what they’ve been able to accomplish,” said Lee Versage, host from the Team 1200, referring to the team’s 50-point margin of victory. “We want to make sure we celebrate it properly,” he said, before introducing the University President Roseann O’Reilly Runte. “The Carleton team that we’re celebrating today has a huge victory, they are our ambassadors and the symbol of what we all are at Carleton … we can all be truly proud of them,”

said Runte, who then read a poem written for the team before Versage introduced the players. “They are not only great players but dedicated students,” said Runte, who stuck around after the official celebration to speak with those in attendance. “It’s a great feeling, knowing the amount of work that was put in over the season,” said forward Dan Penner, who will be returning to his hometown of Winnipeg next school year to pursue a master’s degree in city planning at the University of Manitoba. The Ravens men’s basketball team earned their record-breaking ninth champion ship, March 10, by beating the Lakehead Thunderwolves with an impressive score of 92-42. The 50-point margin shattered the previous record for margin of victory in a final that was set back in 1964, when Windsor defeated UBC 94-70. “It just shows how good we really are,” said Runte, referring the to impressive score.

Minor changes to the circulation policy at the Ottawa Public Library sparked a debate and led the library board to send staff back to the drawing board on March 18.

Take it Back! Program The Take it Back! program is a useful resource for residents looking to get rid of unwanted recyclable items around the household. The program provides residents with a list of local businesses and organizations that reuse, recycle, or safely dispose of the unwanted martial. This can include old paint, burnt out light bulbs, or electronics such as TV’s or computers. Almost 600 partner retailers are now accepting 130 different household waste products that cannot be deposited in the garbage and blue or black recycling boxes. To learn more about the Take it Back! program and to access the directory online, please visit www.ottawa. ca/takeitback.

putting large numbers of those items on hold and checking them out in sequence. That leads to delays for other customers and it means items are out of circulation for long periods as they’re being processed, said Jennifer Stirling, the division-wide manager of service and innovation for the library. “Our circulation is being impacted by our own policy,” she said. Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder, the board’s chairwoman, said the number of holds is increasing and it is becoming a problem at the library. “The hold business is taking up huge real estate in our libraries,” she said, adding that some branches have

maxed out the amount of space they have available to store items that people put on hold. “I think this is a bigger issue,” she added. But the problems are caused by a small number of guilty parties, said board member Christine Langlois. Library board member Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson said the issue could have been solved another way: by putting a limit on the number of items a person can put on hold at one time or adding a fine for people who don’t pick up held items when they become available, she said. “I worry about this,” Wilkinson said of the staff proposal to remove check-out limits. “Somebody could take out 200 … It makes them unavailable for others.” Board member Danielle LussierMeek was also concerned because she anticipated people who rack up expensive late fines if they had too many materials checked out at one time. “It’s unreasonable to have no limits,” Lussier-Meek said. “There could be abuse of the system.” That shouldn’t be a problem because the library alerts people before the return date and it is easy to renew items to extend the due date, staff said. At the end of the day, library users are responsible for their own accounts. Library staff agreed to come back with a different set of recommendations in May relating to the issue of holds and circulation limits on audiovisual materials. Two other changes did get the library board’s approval: the addition of a $5 per hour fine (up to $30) if people keep iPads in branches for longer than their two-hour loan period and a new $10-per-day fine (up to $50) for reference materials. New iPads were introduced at the North Gloucester, Rosemount and Ruth E. Dickinson branches last year.

The Glebe Annex Community Association announced its new board on March 20. One of the founders of the newly built community association, Sylvia Milne, centre, has been voted in as president.

Glebe Annex announces executive committee Michelle Nash

EMC news - One of the founders of the newly created Glebe Annex Community Association has been named its new president. Sylvia Milne, who along with Sue Stefko and Peggy Kampouris laid much of the foundation of the fledgling community association, was elected as its new president. “It’s great, I’m excited and there is lots going on for us right now,” Milne said. Chris McCann was elected as vice-president and Lisa Fury, who served as the secretary at the association’s first official meet and greet meeting on Feb. 6, has been named the association’s official secretary. The position of treasurer remains vacant, a position Milne said she hopes someone from the larger membership will be willing to fill. Currently, the membership for the small neighbourhood west of the Glebe is sitting at 75, a number which Milne said is growing almost daily. The association’s constitution was completed in time for the March 20 meeting and was approved by its


members. The board will meet every last Wednesday of the month, with its first meeting set for May 1. The location is still to be determined, as Milne explained residents would like the meetings to take place in their community, but a lack of community facilities or space is making that difficult. A condominium development at Cambridge Street and Carling Avenue, the LakeLander, has offered the board use of its guest suite once a month, but it may not be available for the May meeting. Milne said residents and members can contact the board for confirmation on where the meeting will be held. The next steps for the association will be to open a bank account followed by a membership drive. The constitution, Milne said, states that membership for the first year will be voluntary, but afterwards it will cost members $10 per year. As of March, the board is also an active member of the Federation of Community Associations. Contact for more information about the new association. R0012000208

Hosting a venting session


ast weekend, the city hosted a roundtable discussing managing climate change by curbing greenhouse gas emissions. A laudable goal, but we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help wonder if it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t also simply an exercise in â&#x20AC;&#x153;fuel-tility.â&#x20AC;? The first topic of the meeting was discussing the most effective strategies for the city to reduce greenhouse gases. The first and really only answer to effectively lower the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s carbon footprint is to lobby the federal and provincial government â&#x20AC;&#x201C; really the only bodies with the power to act as effective agents of change. Did the city really need to spend taxpayers money on an environmental venting session, before writing a letter to the provincial and federal ministries â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as well as assorted MPs and MPPs? Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not suggesting that individuals, municipalities, companies and other assorted organizations and NGOs canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make a difference â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but any effective change will require the concerted effort of cities, provinces and ultimately nations. Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proper role in the discussion is to work with other municipalities to pressure the federal and provincial governments to address

the problem. The greenhouse gas roundtable was set up following months of pressure from a loosely connected group of activists who have been mounting a campaign using Twitter and other social media. Activists were pressing the city to meet its committment to come up with a new climate-change action plan that included clear greenhouse gas reduction targets and a timetable for that plan. The question remains, what kind of actions can the city unilaterally take in reducing greenhouse gas emissions that canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be easily overturned by the provincial and federal government â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially if these actions are ones that lie outside municipalities purview. The City of Ottawa did not need to shell out money and waste time hosting a meeting that ultimately will result in another letter-writing campaign and perhaps small changes to building design requirements, city vehicle fleets or wastemanagement practices. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time would be better spent holding a forum discussing its trash collection policy or the need to address the municipalityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aging infrastructure problem.


What we really need is an app for real city living


ast week it was revealed that there are now two apps to tell you when your bus will arrive. Apparently one was not enough and someone felt the need to come up with a better one. This is the way our economy works nowadays. Most of the time and energy available to our inventors, entrepreneurs and marketers is now spent developing things for phones. Some of them are useful, some of them are just fun. Yet just about the time we get comfortable with them, our inventors, entrepreneurs and marketers come up with new phones. Our old ones are obsolete. The entire economy stands or falls on this stuff now and we might as well get used to it. Sure, some people think that what we need is more factories, better crops, better vaccines, more alternate sources of energy, improved schools and hospitals. Never mind. What we get is better phones. And more apps for them. There is an app that works like a flashlight, which is pretty useful, and I have musician friends whose phones contain the chord progressions for hundreds of tunes. But there is also an app that allows you to use hypnotherapy to improve

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town your golf game, an app that allows you to construct imaginary road networks, an app that helps you to manage your wine cellar and an app that will tell you how long your battery will last.

The bolder among you might use the app to tell you when to stand by the curb imploring the operator not to leave the mountain of snow at the end of your driveway. In the spring, an app can tell you when the spiders are invading your barbecue. In summer, the mosquito app can tell you when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safe to go outside. When fall comes, the maple tree app will tell you when the last leaf is about to fall and you can finally go out and rake.

Kettle Island plan not a bridge to health Stop scams in their tracks BRYNNA


anada is fat. No, I don’t mean phat, as in “cool.” Although we’re that as well, on occasion. Canadians are fat, as in largewaisted. And about a quarter of us are really fat, as in obese. One quarter! According to researchers at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, if we keep going the way we are, the obesity numbers will double by 2030, which means every second one of us will be shopping in the plus-sizes section. This is not a vanity issue. Obesity affects everything, including public health, the economy and mental well-being. People that are obese are more likely to suffer from stroke, Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and depression. As a result, obesity affects workplace productivity, personal relationships and it’s proving to be a huge drain on our tax dollars. Imagine half of us being in this condition in less than 20 years. The answers are complex. There are many things contributing to the obesity epidemic: what we eat, our working conditions, the amount of time we spend in front of screens. But another key contributor is just starting to receive some mainstream attention -- where we live. A number of studies over the past two decades have linked higher rates of obesity to the urban lifestyle. Over-reliance on cars, urban sprawl, longer commutes and lack of access to green space are proven deterrents to active lifestyles. Green space, in particular, is essential to keeping our

LESLIE Capital Muse waistlines trim. So while obesity obviously falls under the purview of public health and food regulators, it’s also an issue to be carefully considered by urban planners. Ottawa’s overweight and obesity statistics are on par with the national average. This is surprising in a way because I always consider Ottawa to be a relatively green city. We have a number of vast public parks, a relatively sophisticated (and everimproving) bike-lane system and we’re all within spitting distance of Gatineau Park. But as the city goes forward to think about tackling obesity in a complex way, it must consider how to incorporate even more green into that plan. It’s one of the reasons the Kettle Island Bridge – currently one of three potential commuter routes under consideration by the National Capital Commission – is inherently flawed. The plan – if it were to go forward – would see a bridge built east of downtown, with the goal of diverting three thousand cars twice daily, plus transport trucks away from the urban core. Instead, the NCC feels that heavy traffic cutting through a vast and unique green area surrounding the Rockcliffe and Avia“That was way to easy!”

tion Parkways is a positive solution. In the interest of full disclosure, I happen to live in one of the neighbourhoods that would be affected by the bridge. And you know, one of the reasons I was surprised to discover that Ottawa’s as fat as the rest of the country is because I don’t see that many fat people here. We’re a pretty active community. The day of the most recent snowstorm, I saw two of my neighbours decked out for winter and cycling to work. Come spring, anyone walking through our neighbourhood would think people are home all day because of the number of cars parked in the driveway. But no: People are actually actively commuting. I think I’ve written before about my friend a few doors down who jogs the six kilometres home from work each day. I’d need three hands to count the number of bicycle commuters. Even the retirees in my neighbourhood are out daily walking, running, cross-country skiing – not only does this mean they’re not sitting at home getting fat, but they’re also not feeling isolated and depressed, two further benefits of protecting green space. So as the NCC continues its deliberations, the impact on the health of our communities needs to be one of the top considerations. After all, unless we are content to look like the characters in the film WALLE within the next 17 years, urban planners need to increase and protect green space – not slash through it with another conduit for motor vehicles.

ACORN demands $14/hour minimum wage Dalton McGuinty, MPP

HELPING PROTECT OTTAWA’S MOST VULNERABLE SENIORS Ontario Government Supports Launch of New Wandering Prevention Program The Ontario government is helping keep Ottawa’s seniors and people with dementia safe by ensuring their families, caregivers and the community are prepared to act in case they go missing. With support from the province, the Alzheimer Society of Ontario is launching the new Finding Your Way Wandering Prevention Program. The first of its kind in Canada, the program will raise awareness of risks for people with dementia and enhance the community response in case they go missing. As part of the program, the Alzheimer Society of Ontario will distribute kits that include tips and resources to help families and caregivers put plans in place to prevent wandering incidents and act quickly in cases of missing seniors. The province is also providing support for the Ontario Police College to develop and deliver police training that incorporates wandering prevention into the police curriculum. The wandering prevention program is a part of Ontario’s Action Plan for Seniors and supports the Ontario government’s efforts to ensure a safe and fair society for all.

EMC news – A small group of protests from the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, known as ACORN Ottawa, took to Preston Street to launch their campaign to have Ontario’s minimum wage increased to $14 an hour, March 21. “Hey-hey, ho-ho, poverty wages have got to go, $10.25 is way too low,” was chanted by protestors as some drivers honked to show their approval for the “honk to raise the minimum wage” sign. The group of about 20, braving the snow and wind outside the provincial Ministry of Labour offices, took turns addressing those gathered. Event organizer Nadia Willard explained that 534,000 workers in Ontario make minimum wage, nearly one out of ten workers. “The three-year freeze on minimum wage has effectively lowered their income by seven per cent,” she said, referring to the provincial government’s decision to freeze minimum wage in 2011. “This will help everyone in our community from small business people to workers and families if the minimum wage is increased,” said Willard. “You shouldn’t have to be going to the food bank if you’re working full-time.” Megan Holliday, a minimum wage worker and ACORN member, shared her experience working at the current minimum wage, an experience that eventually led her to move back in with her parents. Most of those in attendance were members of ACORN,


ACORN Canada launched their campaign to have Ontario’s minimum wage increased to $14 an hour outside the Ministry of Labour office on Preston Street March 21. but one man representing CUPE was in attendance as well as Sean McKenny, president of the Ottawa and District Labour Council. “If a person could live a month making what is currently our minimum wage, they would see how difficult it is,” said McKenny after the event. “Everything is going up yet you still have folks that are stuck in that minimum wage, they don’t have the benefit of any kind of collective agreement or any kind of contract with the employer … they’re working for that minimum wage, no benefits, it’s really the bare minimum,” he said. Mahdi Mohammed, who joined ACORN after having

trouble with his landlord, expressed one of the themes of the protest, that increasing the minimum wage will help all of Ontarians. “I think the economy all around would get better instead of getting sucked up by the top one per cent, it will get spread, people will get more money, and they’ll spend more on the businesses, so it will help everybody,” said Mohammed. ACORN Canada is an independent national organization of low and moderate income families which, according to their website, has over 40,000 members across the country. Ontario, British Columbia and Manitoba are tied for the

highest minimum wage of the provinces at $10.25 an hour, while Alberta has the lowest at $9.75. Nunavut’s minimum wage is $11 an hour. Naqvi defended the government’s position in a release sent to the Ottawa East News. “Our government increased the minimum wage almost 50 per cent since 2003. It was only fair after being frozen for nine years under previous governments,” Naqvi said in the statement. “We recognize that there is more to do,” he stated, pointing to future discussions with business, labour and community groups as a means to determine an appropriate minimum wage in the future.

Mayor’s Report THE OLDER ADULT PLAN By Jim Watson In less than 20 years, the number of seniors in Ottawa will double. In that time, there will be more seniors than children under the age of 15 for the first time in our city’s history. This means even more seniors will be taking transit, visiting libraries and registering for recreation programs. It also means that our city will enjoy the priceless benefits of the skills and knowledge that come with older adults who volunteer their time in community activities. Looking ahead, the key will be building an age-friendly city, one that puts issues that matter to seniors at front of mind. We need to set the right priorities to help older adults reach their full potential. This is why the City of Ottawa has recently launched its Older Adult Plan, a set of actions that we will take to create a more age-friendly city. It is the product of about two years of hard work and consultations with older adults and service providers. Our work began in 2011 when I hosted the Mayor’s Seniors Summit at City Hall, which was a commitment I made in the last election. The event was the first in a series of valuable discussions

about how the City can better serve older adults and how we need to plan for the future. The Older Adult Action Plan commits the City of Ottawa to 74 CONCRETE ACTIONS OVER THE NEXT two years in priority areas such as outdoor spaces, transportation, housing, communication, recreation, civic participation and social inclusion. &OR EXAMPLE WORK HAS ALREADY begun on installing more accessible features in City facilities. We have also published an Older Adult Activity Guide to connect residents with recreation programs. You will soon start to see improvements made for pedestrian safety, access to volunteer opportunities and a wide range of other areas to enrich the lives of older adults. This is just the beginning, but we are on the right track. In fact, we were recently recognized by the World Health Organization, which added Ottawa as a member of its 'LOBAL .ETWORK OF !GE &RIENDLY Cities. If you are interested in reading the Older Adult Action Plan, printed copies are available by calling 3-1-1 or e-mailing seniors@ottawa. ca. You can also find out more by visiting

Artist looks to create connections Michelle Nash

RED LIGHT CAMERA ENFORCEMENT PROGRAM I was pleased that the province recently announced to introduce legislation that will enable the City of Ottawa to seek out-of-province motorists who drive through Ottawa intersections without receiving red light camera tickets. I have been advocating for this legislation since I introduced a motion to City Council requesting the province to amend the Highway Traffic Act. Prior to the legislation being introduced, Quebec-plated vehicles were able to avoid red light camera tickets because of provincial restrictions. Between 2010 and 2011 there were more than 4,000 incidents of potential red light running by non-Ontario vehicles captured by cameras in Ottawa. Without the legislation, the City was unable to collect any of those fines. GEOFF DERRY

Vanier artist Geoff Derry, whose work is pictured above, is reaching out to other artists in the community to help create an artistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; registry for the neighbourhood. This list would keep artists informed of community events, opportunities for collaboration or professional development, as well as to help with promotion. quests and procuring support for community activities. The registry will also provide artists the opportunities to connect with each other and help facilitate collectives and groups. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to hook you up with people that are looking for an artist for various things like a mural, music for an event, a writer, photographer,â&#x20AC;? Derry said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also important to show the business community how big a thing this is in their neighbourhood. This is something they should take into account when they make their plans.â&#x20AC;? If nothing else, it gives even amateur artists a chance for a modicum of recognition Derry said. The registry could also help new artists, or old ones with promotion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think, perhaps more importantly, the registry can facilitate associations of ama-

Derry said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely a start.â&#x20AC;? Artists can become a part of the list by emailing and sending as much information about themselves as possible: who they are, what they do and contact information. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you are unsure of whether this applies to you, write and ask. It probably does. If you feel left out because you live on the wrong side of Beechwood or Ducharme, write. If you are in the general neighbourhood, we will include you.â&#x20AC;?

EMC news - If you have a K1L postal code and you are creative, one Vanier resident is looking to reach out to you to help create the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first artistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; registry. Arts Vanier is for all the artists, arts organizations and arts-related industry in Vanier. Longtime artist and area resident Geoff Derry has launched this project to help Vanier artists. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All artists fall into a void somehow,â&#x20AC;?

A member of the Vanier Community Association, Derry has long been a voice for arts, making sure events held by the association and other community organizations in the area keep artists in mind. The idea for a registry grew out of those efforts, Derry said, as each event came and went he continued to want to reach out to more artists. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eventually, after trying to figure out how to create some kind of useful list of local artists I asked the board if I could use our mailing list to start generating this idea,â&#x20AC;? he said. The registry is aimed at including all arts as best as it can. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That means not just visual artists, but musicians, writers, actors, and others,â&#x20AC;? he said. Derry explained there are several reasons for gathering this information including communication with the city, provincial or federal governments, or organizations such as the United Way, helping to show the proliferation of the arts in the neighbourhood. One thing Derry is hoping the registry will accomplish is to help with funding re-

It will be a wonderful complement to our fascinating exhibitions on aviation and space travel.â&#x20AC;? The museum invited a group of students from Georges Vanier Catholic School to meet some of the characters of the series, including Darth Vader and a few Stormtroopers. Student Rachael Mombourquette said her family has all the movies at home, but she admitted she was never really interested until now. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think I will go home and watch them, it seems really cool,â&#x20AC;? Mombourquette said. X3 Productions collaborated with the MontrĂŠal Science Centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team of experts in a variety of ďŹ elds to build the exhibition. Jacques-AndrĂŠ Dupont, president and executive producer of X3 Productions, said the teamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; knowledge and expertise have shaped the exhibitionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s structure and their input has been essential in developing its scientiďŹ c and educational content. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This exhibition offers a fresh perspective on the beloved characters of Star Wars,â&#x20AC;? Dupont said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We get a deeper understanding of their identities, and, at the same time, we get a deeper understanding of our own ... . Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a character-driven adventure into identity.â&#x20AC;? Exploring the complex notion of identity in both the real world and in the ďŹ lms, X3 Productions hopes shed light on each of the

components of identity. The exhibition will divide the study of the characters from the movies identity into three major themes: the origins of the characters, the inďŹ&#x201A;uences that shape them, and the choices they make during their life. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s by looking at these charactersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; identity that patrons will have the chance to learn about the components which make up their own human identities, such as species, genes, parents, and culture. The museum promises many fun aspects to the new exhibit including a making-of featurettes which explore the stories behind the development of many iconic Star Wars characters and explain

how they became who they are, and how different creative choices could have made them different characters altogether. There are interactive identity quests, scientiďŹ c content and the chance to follow Luke and Anakin Skywalker through their journey. Online ticket sales for the exhibition opened on March 23, with opening day beginning on May 10. Visitors can also begin their identity adventure online at Adult tickets are $23 and children are $13.25. The exhibition will run until Sept. 2. For more information about the new exhibition, visit

New this tax year is our Governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Family Caregiver Tax Credit, which provides ďŹ nancial relief for those families caring for their elderly or disabled relatives. The Child Disability BeneďŹ t for low and moderate income families has also been increased and extended to permit broader eligibility. Additional tax credits introduced by our Government since 2006 include: the Textbook Tax Credit, which delivers $65 for each month of full-time post-secondary education; the Public Transit Tax Credit for 15% of the cost of a monthly or yearly public transit pass; the Apprenticeship Job Creation Tax Credit for employers equivalent to 10% of the salaries and wages paid to the apprentice; the Volunteer FireďŹ ghters Tax Credit of $3,000 for volunteer ďŹ reďŹ ghters who perform at least 200 hours of service a year; and the First-Time Home Buyers Tax Credit, which saves Canadians up to $750 on qualifying home purchases.

Finally, it was our Government that reduced the GST from seven percent to ďŹ ve percent, a move which alone saves families an average of $900 per year. We have also lowered personal income taxes for all Canadians, and created the Tax-Free Savings Account which is helping them save for their future.

Program Objective



Â&#x201C; Ä&#x201A;y


These savings come, in part, from many of our popular tax credits. The Child Tax BeneďŹ t, for example, provides tax relief of over $300 per child under the age of 18 for the 2012 tax year. Additionally, the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fitness Tax Credit, an idea that I presented to the Prime Minister in 2006, and the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Arts Tax Credit, each save families $75 per child under 16 for activities like soccer, hockey and ballet.



¸ à ]

Personal Support Worker

Having cut taxes over 140 times since 2006, we have helped the average Canadian family save over $3,100 per year. For those families with young children eligible for the Universal Child Care BeneďŹ t, savings could be as much as $5,500 annually.

Hard-working Canadians know that supporting a family requires dedication, time and energy. It also requires ďŹ nancial stability, which is why our Government continues to help families save by lowering taxes and creating jobs.

which wasn’t big enough to fill a teaspoon, but big enough to send her into a fit. Father, used to Mother’s obsession with cleanliness, never took his eyes off the Family Herald and Weekly Star that he was reading by the oven door. She demanded to know where the snow came from, and both Audrey and Everett vowed it came from the farthest reaches of the yard where no livestock ever went. Well, that didn’t satisfy Mother. Even though she had no idea what the black lump was, she knew it had spoiled the entire roaster of snow. Audrey said she would get rid of it and that the rest of the roaster was perfectly clean. Well, she might as well have told Mother the lump was just a raisin. Mother was having no part of her story. “Dump it out, Audrey,” Mother said. “Goodness knows what else is in the roaster. There’ll be no toffee tonight.” Well, did that cause an uproar. Emerson accused Everett and Audrey of getting the snow from behind the cow byre where we dumped the manure, Everett took a handful of the snow out of the roaster and flung it at Emerson, who paid him back by throwing his gum rubber at him, hitting him square in the face. Audrey was ready to stomp off upstairs. Mother ordered her back to the table and she was told to scrub the roaster with hot water and lye soap, even though the teeny bit of black came no where near touching the pan. The commotion in the kitchen was like something you’d see in a movie. Father got off the rocking chair, folded the Family Herald and Weekly Star, tapped his pipe into the stove and he could be heard muttering about the crazy family he was living with – “A man can’t even read the paper in peace.” While he was heading for the bedroom off the kitchen, he added, “Hauling snow in the house, throwing it around like it was nothing. Washing a perfectly clean pan, I tell you the whole house is going straight to hell in a basket,” which was a saying Father hauled out every time something came up that riled him. That night he was as riled as I had seen him in a long time.

inding clean snow in the yard at the farm was almost impossible. This caused a great concern for Mother. At this time of year, we five children begged for toffee-on-snow as the sap poured from the trees, and that meant hauling in a roaster of spotlessly clean snow. As well as the boiling-down in the big flat pan in the bush, Mother would boil big pots of sap in the kitchen filling the house with sweet heavy steam. Each night we children begged for toffeeon-snow, but often Mother would say it was a Saturday night treat and we went to bed out of sorts that we have been deprived of one of our favourite treats. Each night that we were allowed this indulgence Everett or Audrey, being the two oldest in the family, would be sent out for a roast pan of snow. Mother kept sending them farther and farther afield for clean snow. Father said she would soon have us going across the river to Admaston, which of course was an exaggeration. But Mother was fastidious about anything that came within a country mile of our mouths and using a roast pan of snow where the livestock had trod was out of the question. So either Everett or Audrey was given the task of finding clean snow for the toffee – Emerson couldn’t be trusted to go beyond the barn yard. That night it was dark as pitch outside. It had been a heavy snow for late March. Mother said we would be staying home. No church party had been planned and no one had offered their home for a game of cards, so we had a rare Saturday night at home without a house full of neighbours. It was a perfect night for toffee-on-snow. Audrey would carry the lantern and Everett the roast pan and the big soup ladle, ready to bring in the freshly fallen snow. Mother had put a small pot of already boiled syrup on the front lid of the Findlay Oval and it was fair jumping by the time the clean snow was brought into the house, just perfect to pour out on the snow for a feed of sticky toffee. Although Mother always trusted Audrey or Everett to go well away from the barn yard, that night she took a big spoon and dragged it through the roaster of snow, just to be on the safe side. Well, what happened next was something like you would see in a picture show in Renfrew. There, buried in the pan of snow, was something that proved they hadn’t gone far enough. Mother stared at the black lump,

Public weighs in on 1812 monument finalists Two concepts judged for 2014 Parliament Hill installation Steph Willems

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; As part of the federal governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effort to recognize the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812, two artists unveiled their monument concepts for public viewing last week. Residents were invited into the National Capital Commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Elgin Street ofďŹ ces on March 20 to cast a critical eye on the designs, which were chosen as ďŹ nalists by a jury of ďŹ ne arts, heritage and landscape architecture experts. The War of 1812 monument design process is being led by the NCC in partnership with Canadian Heritage. Artists Adrienne Alison of Ontario and Brian Cooley of Alberta were present to discuss the aspects of their designs, both of which incorporate references to the diverse mix of cultures that took part

in the conďŹ&#x201A;ict. A spot has been chosen for the monument overlooking Wellington Street near the East Block on Parliament Hill. Cooleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concept depicts 20 bronze ďŹ gures â&#x20AC;&#x201C; First Nations warriors, British infantrymen, French Canadian voltigeurs, Africanâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Canadian soldiers and a female nurse bandaging a patient. Cooley wanted to ensure the role of women in the conďŹ&#x201A;ict was referenced. While the actions of noted ďŹ gure Laura Secord are well-recorded in history books, Cooley said he wanted to commemorate â&#x20AC;&#x153;all the other women who did so much and never got recognized.â&#x20AC;? The ďŹ gures in the monument would be six feet tall in full-size form, atop an eightinch stone base. Alisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work, titled Triumph Through Diversity, consists of seven ďŹ gures (representing key demographics)


The two finalists in the federal governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s War of 1812 Monument competition are seen during an open house at the offices of the NCC on March 20. Artists Adrienne Alison and Brian Cooley were on hand to explain their concepts, while public feedback was recorded for the final judging process. on a central stone ďŹ&#x201A;anked by two small, granite boats. Etchings in the stone would further tell the story of the conďŹ&#x201A;ict. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(The base) is only 18 inches tall, so people can sit on it in the summer,â&#x20AC;? said Alison, explaining how the siteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s close proximity to the National War Memorial led

her to decide to go with a tight group of ďŹ gures for her concept. Alison said she tried to represent the cultures involved in the British side of the conďŹ&#x201A;ict â&#x20AC;&#x153;as much as you could,â&#x20AC;? adding â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted it to be something that was educational, easy to understand, which is

why I wanted the etching.â&#x20AC;? The full-size monumentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ gures would be seven feet tall atop a two-foot-tall pedestal. Residents were encouraged to record their thoughts on a large sheet of butcherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paper, which was spread across a large table in the centre of the room.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of the information from (the open house) will be shared with our client, Canadian Heritage,â&#x20AC;? said NCC spokesman Charles Cardinal. While no date has been set for the announcement of the winner, Cardinal said the monument is slated to be unveiled in its Parliament Hill location in the fall of 2014.

EMC lifestyle - Mornings are hectic for many families. Between getting out the door to school on weekdays and extra-curriculars on weekends, ďŹ nding the time to cook and eat breakfast can be a challenge. A national poll of Canadian family breakfast habits recently found that half of Canadian families (49 per cent) spend less than 10 minutes preparing breakfast, while more than half (60 per cent) spend less than 15 minutes eating it. So, to make the most of that tight time window, and take utmost advantage of the most important meal of the day, quick options are a must. Realizing that time and convenience are key to the solution, the Canadian Living magazine test kitchen, partnering with Minute Maid, has created a â&#x20AC;&#x153;make ahead

Nature museum names latest member of dino â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Idol contest sees public pick next research project Michelle Nash

EMC news - A Canadian managed to win over the hearts of voters during the Museum of Natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent Dino Idol contest - a dinosaur nicknamed Canadian Club, that is. The museum launched the contest in February, inviting patrons visiting its dinosaur exhibition to participate in choosing the next research project. With more than 200 burlap and plaster packages - referred to as field jackets - to choose from at the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s storage facility in Gatineau, dinosaur paleontologist Jordan Mallon decided to ask the public to pick the latest encasing to study. The contest featured five dinosaur specimens gathered in the early part of last

century and the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s researchers only have a vague idea whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inside each field jacket. The one nicknamed Canadian Club garnered the most votes during the competition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our visitors were clearly drawn to Canadian Club, although each candidate was selected to provide something interesting to uncover,â&#x20AC;? Mallon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The field notes from when Canadian Club was collected say the fossil includes the hips, tail and club of an ankylosaur. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unusual to find these parts articulated or attached, so if thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the case it could provide more information about this dinosaurâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anatomy.â&#x20AC;? All the specimens were collected by fossil hunter Charles H. Sternberg and his three sons. Each casing has been in the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possession since the Sternbergs uncovered them in the early 1900s. All the information the museum has on the field jackets are from the Sternbergsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; field notes. Canadian Club was collected in 1915 and its plaster cas-

ing weighs 300 kilograms. The museum will begin opening the fossil and will be prepared for study and eventual display at the museum, a process which could take anywhere from a few months to an entire year to complete. The four other candidates were Regal Ed, a partial skeleton of a duck-billed dinosaur, Stumpy, the skull of a horned dinosaur that has resorbed (a re-distribution of the hornâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s calcium for other purposes in the body i.e. laying eggs, injuries) its entire right brow horn, Mystery Jaw, which may be a carnivorous dinosaur jaw, and Headrosaur, the skull of another duck-billed dinosaur researchers believe could be something never before seen. In anticipation of opening any one of the candidates, Mallon had said before the contest that he was excited about the prospect of any of the castings being opened. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Teeth, claws, clubs, there is a variety to choose from,â&#x20AC;? he said. In winning the contest, Canadian Club received 36

Canada Lands Company will hold its second round of public consultation concerning the former Rockcliffe air base on May 25. This consultation will focus on design ideas and concepts.

Public meeting for Rockcliffe Air base announced Michelle Nash

EMC news - The next public consultation concerning redevelopment on the former Rockcliffe air base is set to take place in May. Development planning for the former Canadian Forces Base Rockcliffe is moving ahead as scheduled, with the Canada Lands Company prepared to hold its second public consultation at the Hampton Inn in Overbrook on May 25. According to Don Schultz, a director for Canada Lands, the consultation will offer area residents the chance to roll up their sleeves and participate in a workshop that will showcase preliminary designs for the new site. “We are working on different design ideas for the new community,” Schultz said. “We are going to want to hear from people in response to the different alternative design ideas and we are going to want to find out what they think are the positive aspects of these designs.” The workshop will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and residents wishing to attend must pre-register online at, or by calling Schultz at 613-998-7765. If residents do not have all day to spend discussing design elements, Schultz said not to worry as his team has constructed the consultation to meet anyone’s needs, with a less formal, drop in option available where people can meet with Rockcliffe Lands team members, look at the designs and updates since the last public consultation took place in November. “We want to provide as many different opportunities

for people to get informed and get up-to-date,” Schultz said. The last consultation, dubbed the “ideas fair,” was well attended, with more than 650 turning out to the event at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum to meet the project team and to look at the preliminary findings and plans for the 136 hectares of land. Since that evening, the management team has summarized the comments made. “A lot of the concerns were made around transportation,” Schultz said, adding he believes that by working with the city, the concern could be addressed by creating excellent access to public transit, including creating a transit corridor through the site. Another hot topic the team heard, he added, was affordable housing: people want to be sure that both market-affordable and community housing options are made available for the area. “People said they want a wide variety of housing types,” he said. Canada Lands Company is a Crown corporation that manages government properties across the country. In the past, Schultz said, Canada Lands has redevelopment other former bases - all of which Schultz said have included multiple affordable housing options. According to Schultz, the Algonquins of Ontario and Canada Lands have an agreement concerning development on the site, which includes a commemoration of the history of the Algonquin people, participation in all stages of the concept development, land use planning and detailed design, and the use of qualified Algonquin companies for the project.

The team is currently working on its first step for the development site, the community design plan, which will be handled by MMM Group. The development of the land will take place in phases and could take a number of years to complete. Where construction will begin has yet to be determined, but Schultz has been meeting with various resident associations, organizations, city officials and site neighbours, including the National Research Council, which has agreed for Canada Lands to incorporate some of its lands into the development planning, in an effort to create more access to the future community. “Our understanding was there were concerns with Hemlock Road access, but that is why we are working on different alternatives, the more access we have the more we can disperse the traffic,” Schultz said. The team has also been working at creating public advisory groups, with an established group of community associations and residents who live next to the site already in place, as well as one for nearby neighbours, one on housing and development and a group focused on social and arts and culture development. Schultz has also been reaching out to the four school boards to determine the needs for schools on the land. “It hasn’t been determined on what the need is, but we are prepared to have schools on the site,” he said. A community design plan for the site will be presented to city council in early 2014. After the May consultation, the team will hold another meeting in the fall.

Bus-arrival board hits Centretown coffee shop Laura Mueller

EMC news - Software developers from Nepean and Barrhaven beat the city by a year by putting a digital board displaying bus times at a Centretown coffee shop. If Ryan Androsoff of Nepean and Sean Kibbee of Barrhaven are successful in expanding their company, Beyond 2.0, and putting more boards in Ottawa businesses, they will also be the first entrepreneurs to build a business based on the city’s open data program. The display is located in a Treats coffee shop at the corner of Albert and Kent streets in the business district. “It occurred to us if you’re sitting in a coffee shop, it would be great if you could look over at the wall and find out when the next bus is coming, especially in an Ottawa winter so you don’t have to wait in the cold,” Androsoff said. “Sean and I are both transit users and we both deal with that in our daily commutes.” It’s a win-win situation for the coffee shop, said owner Adib ElKhoury. People come in to check out the bus times and buy a coffee while the wait inside in the warmth, he said. Nepean resident John Scanlon said the display board is one of the reasons he chooses to come to the Treats shop. “I quite like it,” he said. “It lets me know if I have to scarf down my food.” The city began making data streams on everything from the city’s cycling network to flu-clinic times and locations freely available in 2010. GPS locations for OC Transpo buses came along last year and hobbyist developers released a number of mobile applications and websites that use the information to let riders know when their next bus

Kibbee was one of those developers, and along with his friend, Androsoff, wondered if there might be an opportunity for savvy entrepreneurs such as themselves to build a business – and maybe an entire segment of the local economy – around making open data useful to people.

The duo began talking about the idea last fall, but really got down to work in January, Androsoff said. With the building blocks of Kibbee’s website, Beyond 2.0 created the display board prototype in about six weeks. The city is likely a year or more away from putting similar displays

into transit stations, said Beacon Hill-Cyrville Coun. Tim Tierney, who sits on the transit commission and heads up its subcommittee on technology. Tierney applauded Androsoff and Kibbee’s work and said he hopes to see more businesses spring out of the city’s open data venture.

“I’m very, very supportive and happy,” Tierney said. “I encourage other entrepreneurs and businesses o get involved in this and start putting boards up all over the place if they want. There is little chance of Beyond 2.0 actually partnering with the city to offer the display boards in transit stations or on city property because the city has already chosen a company to do that. Part of the reason is that there are many hoops to jump through when it comes to doing something for the city, include stakeholder engagement and bilingualism requirements, Tierney said. In that way, it’s not a competition, he added – companies like Beyond 2.0 can meet a need for businesses, while the city can focus on its own transit stations and buildings. That type of collaboration is the spirit of the open data movement, Androsoff said. Androsoff and Kibbee plan to enter their innovation into an opendata contest the city is currently running called Apps 4 Ottawa. If the test board at the Treats coffee shop is successful, Beyond 2.0 would look at adding bus arrival time boards at other businesses that are interested. Adding the bus-location capability to existing digital displays in places like doctors’ offices is another possibility, Androsoff said. Business owners can head to www.beyond20. ca to fill out a pre-registration form if they would like to be considered as a location for future bus arrival boards in the coming months. Eventually, the pair could look at other open data streams offered by the city, province, federal government or even international agencies, Androsoff said. “The opportunities are limitless,” he said. Other companies have tried to make a go of a similar venture in other cities, but Androsoff hasn’t found anyone who successfully built a company around the concept. Still, with digital technology and Wi-Fi becoming more affordable, building a business around data is now a real possibility, Androsoff said. R0011992630

New committee OKs converting office into hotel Laura Mueller

to be making decisions based on a very old document that might not reflect current ideas about architecture,” he told the committee on March 20. Indeed, heritage staff and councillors noted that Ottawa recently designated an entire district of buildings from the same era in the east-end Briarcliffe neighbourhood, making the city one of, if not the first in Canada to recognize an entire district of mid-century buildings as “heritage.” Katherine Grechuta from Fotenn, a planning consultant who represents the developer, Claridge, said the heritage impact study the developer had to conduct found changing the building would not impact the rest of the heritage district in the ByWard Market, so Claridge wants to convert it to have “a more modern response to the exterior.” Grechuta said the conversion will make the tall building fit in more harmoniously with the streetscape. The city is requiring Claridge to install a plaque inside the lobby describing the building’s heritage. Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs, who sits on the

committee, worried that the changes would eradicate an element of the building that architectural experts consider to be an artistic achievement: the angled windows. The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada, among others, wrote to councillors urging them to consider respecting the work of Laure Major, an artist who created two murals in the lobby of the building, and who also collaborated with the architect, Louis Lapierre, to create the unique pattern of the reflective windows. Jim Burghout of Claridge said the windows are in bad shape and must be replaced anyway, but the angled pattern doesn’t lend itself to the building’s use as a hotel, so the angled pattern won’t be replicated. The project also includes a neighbouring condo tower that will be debated separately at an upcoming planning committee meeting. The local councillor, Mathieu Fleury, was unable to comment on the plans because he has a conflict of interest due to his father’s employment with Claridge.


EMC news - The Union du Canada building on Dalhousie might be an iconic part of Lowertown’s skyline, but it’s not an attractive part, the city’s new heritage committee says. The committee, which is made up of four councillors and three members of the public, supported a renovation to update the 1960s-era tower at the corner of York Street by adding four floors and converting it into a hotel. The project is a good example of the adaptive re-use of an existing building in the heritage district, and the changes are warranted because the 11-storey office tower doesn’t relate to the other heritage buildings in the area. Since it’s already out of place among the early 19thcentury low-rise buildings that dominate the ByWard Market, it might as well become taller and more attractive, city heritage staff recommended. The committee unanimously agreed. “It clearly is out of scale

council. But community members are bemoaning the loss of a piece of Lowertown’s francophone heritage. The building and its predecessor at 325 Dalhousie St. were the home of the local francophone movement for almost 150 years, said Lowertown Community Association president Marc Aubin in a press release. “This organization, started as a mutual aid society, was involved in the francophone community’s struggles to protect its linguistic and educational rights and to resist the assimilation of FrenchCanadians in Ontario,” Aubin wrote.

Grassroots festival moves locations Michelle Nash

EMC news - The Grassroots Festival has switched locations due to a leak in the Montgomery Legionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roof. The festival was planned to take place at the Kent Street facility on April 27 and 28, but repairs to the legionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roof, which was damaged this winter, will not be complete in time said festival organizer Robert Nesbitt.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Repairs after a severe roof leak in the winter are taking longer than expected to complete and the legion will not be ready for us by the end of April,â&#x20AC;? Nesbitt said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is really nobodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fault; it is just Mother Nature at work.â&#x20AC;? The legion, Nesbitt added, has helped the festival organizers ďŹ nd a new venue, which will be the Rideau Curling Club. The Grassroots Festival announced its lineup on March 6, which has ex-

panded to a two-day event after a successful inaugural year in 2012. In total, there will be 120 musical performances, including performances from Ana Miura, Amanda Rheaume, Wendell Ferguson and Suzie Vinnick on Saturday night. Sunday night will feature Andy Rush, The Weekend Choir and Big Soul Project. Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concert will help raise money for CKCU FM, a volunteer-run radio station in Ottawa. For music lovers or learners, there will be more than 34 hours of free entertainment during the daytime with multiple opportunities to learn a thing or two from some local Ottawa musicians at any of the free workshops and performances during the weekend. Ticket prices are $25 for Saturday night, $15 for Sunday night, and $35 for a weekend pass. More information about the festival is available at 613-851-4716

WELCOME TO SPRING! Do we dare to hope? Are the snow banks ďŹ nally going to disappear? It must be Spring, given the renewal that is taking place in our schools in River Zone. And parents are playing an important role in these developments. Carleton Heights Public School will be undergoing a major renovation and refurbishment, scheduled for this Fall. In a special public consultation held on March 18, an overwhelming majority of parents voted to move the students to the now vacant Parkwood Hills Public School during the renovations that are expected to take 8 months. Parents were thrilled that my motion to remove the students from the construction site was approved unanimously by Trustees. I am also working hard to ensure that the child care and extended day programs at Carleton Heights are treated with sensitivity, with priority placed on the safety and well being of our youngest children.


Lindsay Groleau and Caitlyn Groleau sing a few songs for the crowd at Pressed Gourmet Sandwich Bar on March 7. The girls are part of a new childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s choir, Sparrows, which will be performing at the Grassroots Festival from April 27 to 28.

At Fielding Drive Public School, change is in the air as well. At a recent School Council meeting, I met with a wide cross section of parents and the new Principal Marc Slesar. We talked about exciting new extracurricular sports and clubs at the school, supervised by the Principal, Vice-Principal and an eager group of parent volunteers. We discussed the vibrant multicultural community at the school, and talked about ways to increase parental engagement. The Principal presented the school budget, and sought input on ways to meet the needs of all students, in both the English program and the French immersion program. I left the meeting with a feeling of great excitement and optimism, as the parent community exercises its role in making the educational experience for our students an outstanding one.

2. Are there areas in which we could be saving money for other purposes? 3. What other issues should we consider in developing the Budget? Please send your ideas to me at shirley.seward@ocdsb. ca, or call me at 613-851-4716. I am always at your service. R0011985621

Residents get second look at Beechwood fire site plans Michelle Nash

EMC news - Traffic and retail space remained top priorities for those residents who attended the most recent Beechwood fire site meeting in New Edinburgh on March 19. At the city-led public consultation for a proposed eight-storey mixed use building to be located at 7-23 Beechwood Ave. and 409-411 McKay St., residents expressed concerns about parking, traffic and a lack of retail space after looking at the updated designs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you turn all the traffic out to McKay, you are going to put a lot of pressure on that street,â&#x20AC;? said David Sacks, president of the New Edinburgh Community Alliance, at the St. Bartholomewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hall event. Consulting firm Delcan prepared the traffic analysis for the site and Ron Jack, vice president of the Ottawa office, attended the meeting to discuss the findings with residents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This project is located on a good transit corridor,â&#x20AC;? Jack said. In total, according to Delcan, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estimated 30 to 45 cars worth of traffic per hour will be generated by the building, with a peak of 60 per hour during rush hour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The reality is we are sneaking up to one million in population in Ottawa and the traffic that we have now


Residents from the five communities that share Beechwood Avenue attend the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public consultation on a development proposal for the Beechwood fire site, 7-23 Beechwood Ave., 409-411 McKay St. by Minto Group. is the best its going to be,â&#x20AC;? Jack said, adding transit will help ease this concern. Units will more than likely be purchased by people seeking to downsize, or younger professionals who do not own a car or prefer to use transit Jack said.

The design of the Minto building is an eight-storey mixed-use development with retail planned for Beechwood Avenue. It also features an open courtyard at the corner of Beechwood and McKay with residential space facing McKay Street. Preliminary plans predict 157 resi-

dential units and 188 parking spaces, with some surface parking at the rear of the building for the retail stores, accessed on McKay Street. The building design is a glass and concrete structure, stepping back from the street five-storeys up, to give the appearance of a smaller building. One of the biggest concerns for residents is the proposed driveway used to access the building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a weak point already,â&#x20AC;? Sacks said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you reduce the driveway or parking, the city will have to limit parking on McKay, which reduces our assurances we have been getting from you that there will be enough parking surrounding the building.â&#x20AC;? Many of the concerns raised will be addressed during the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s site plan review process, said Bliss Edwards, the city planner working on the project. This did not ease the minds of residents gathered at the event however, with many continually raising the same issues during the question and answer period. Minto presented its proposal at the top of the meeting, which featured small changes from the initial design presented to the public in January at a community association-led consultation. Included in these are spaces for more retail stores on the site, additional sidewalk space along Beechwood and McKay and adjustments to

the building materials that make the brick portions lighter. Brent Strachan, vice president of development at Minto, said the developer is currently entertaining the retail prospective for the site. Architect Prishram Jain from the Toronto firm TACT Architecture Inc. said he has designed a building aimed to fit into the neighbourhood. Some residents said they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe he had met that goal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everything seems out of touch, what fits?â&#x20AC;? Katherine Greer-Close said. Jain answered it was his professional opinion that the colour, look and feel of the building was complementary to the street. Some in the crowd said they appreciated the design, including New Edinburgh resident Dale Smith, who used to own an art gallery on Beechwood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mind the colour, Beechwood is a monochromatic street and I think that when you get used to this, it will be OK,â&#x20AC;? Smith said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m encouraged that Minto has responded to some of our concerns, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hopeful this will continue.â&#x20AC;? Smith went on to say that she is older and more inclined to like something typical of what was built three years ago, but that she is also a pragmatist and the new building will find its place in the neighbourhood.

Imagine Gala to fundraise in memory of Ottawa constable Brier Dodge

EMC news - Const. Karla Santos always thought big when it came to fighting brain cancer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She always said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Imagine there was a cure,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? said her sister-in-law, Leah Harding. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She would do anything to help someone in need.â&#x20AC;? Santos passed away in June, but her husband, Adam Collins, and his siblings are keeping the fight alive for her with the Imagine Gala, which will be held April 6 at the National Arts Centre, a fundraiser for the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada. Harding is one of the four siblings, including Adam, Tim Collins and Sara Mormul, who are planning the event. Last year Harding, Mormum and Tim organized the Fight for Karla to raise money for the family while Santos was in the hospital. Held at the Nepean Sportsplex, over 500 people came out in support. Despite the four siblings living in different areas â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Harding near Navan, Tim in Kingston, Mormul in Peterborough â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they put long distance phone bills aside and got busy planning an event for Santos and Adam, both Ottawa police officers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was huge, it blew our minds. Now Adam wants to pay it forward and give back to the Brain Tumour Foundation,â&#x20AC;? Harding said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There really arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a lot of treatment options.â&#x20AC;?



Santos was a police officer who worked out of the Elgin Street Station and had already fought brain cancer twice before being diagnosed for a third time shortly after the birth of her second daughter, Ainsley. She was hospitalized in February 2012, about eight months after Aisnleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s birth, and stayed in the hospital until June 22 of this past summer, when she passed away. Her daughters Ainsley, now 2, and Ella, 5, will be at the event start of the event, but will later be tucked in bed by relatives, as the allevening soiree will be a late night. It will have a three-course dinner, silent auction, live music and dancing. The silent auction includes signed Coldplay and Dallas Green of City and Colour albums. Both bands were some of Santosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; favourites, and the ones she would respond to in the hospital, even after she lost her ability to speak and most of her motor skills. The usually still Santos would move, or look over at her husband when the songs came on, Harding said. At a recent Coldplay concert, lead singer Chris Martin dedicated a song to Santos and Adam. Other aspects of her will be incorporated into the gala, from her love of live music and social events, to decorating with tulips, her favourite flower, and stars, which she loved. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what she is now,â&#x20AC;? Harding said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A star in the sky.â&#x20AC;? There are 250 tickets for sale for the Imagine Gala, with a portion already sold. Tickets cost $100.

Bertschi drops out of Liberal leadership race March 21. The decision was reached after his campaign staff, â&#x20AC;&#x153;realized there was a lack of support needed to win the nomination,â&#x20AC;? said Leo Bourdon, director of communications for Bertschiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign.

Tyler Costello

EMC News - Underdog candidate David Bertschi announced his resignation from the federal Liberal leadership race at a press conference

Bertschi becomes the third candidate to drop out after George Takach and MP Marc Garneau called it quits earlier this month. There are now six candidates left in the running. Although Takach and Garneau put their support behind

MP Justin Trudeau, Bertschi will not make an endorsement, preferring to let the supporters of the party decide, said Bourdon. The Ottawa-based human rights lawyer, who unsuccessfully ran as the Liberal Partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

candidate for the Ottawa-Orleans riding in the last federal election, has dealt with questions about his campaign after his campaign manager and financial agent quit earlier this month. Bertschi will run for the

Liberal nomination in the Ottawa-Orleans riding in the next federal election, said Bourdon. Both Trudeau and MP Bob Rae took to Twitter to offer their congratulations and best wishes to Bertschi.

Rick Mercer Report comes to Algonquin College

EMC news – Algonquin College students got their close-up on March 18, and for a good reason. The school received a visit from CBC television personality Rick Mercer, who was taping an episode of The Rick Mercer Report on campus following the release of fundraising numbers for his Spread the Net Student Challenge. Of all the post-secondary campuses involved in the antimalaria initiative, Algonquin came out on top, with $40,394 raised through the actions and donations of students and staff. The school’s goal was $15,000. A group of very enthusiastic students gathered in the Algonquin Commons Theatre to await the fundraising total and the appearance of the challenge’s creator. David Corson, president of the Algonquin Students’ Association, called the occasion “a celebration of hard work,” describing how the whole thing started last year when a student approached him with both a

dream and a plan to make it happen. “We said ‘what can we do,’ and it looks like everyone else said the same thing,” said Corson. “We had two months in which to achieve what we did, and that shows the size of the heart of Algonquin … You all came together – it’s amazing. You inspire me every day.” Algonquin College president Kent MacDonald praised his students for their generosity and energy, explaining that those qualities will take them places. “Every single one of us can be a leader in an organization like this,” said MacDonald. “The staff and faculty decided this was so important that they brought the idea forward, they had a dream and a goal, and you’ll hear shortly that it was greatly surpassed.” MacDonald congratulated the students for taking the initiative to take their learning outside the classroom, and for affecting change in the lives of people they’ve never met.

The students responded in a big way. “I realized when we started this contest that it was kind of an unfair contest,” admitted Mercer, describing how from the outset the winning school would be the one to get the publicity. However, he said, students

didn’t seem to care. “They believe in this, they believe in (Spread the Net), they believe it can happen, students like yourself,” said Mercer, describing the $1.1 million raised countrywide by students who supported the initiative. “You might be the biggest school in Canada, you might be the biggest college in Canada, but certainly Algonquin College, as far as I am concerned, you are the most generous.”

Pet Adoptions GINGER ID#A153509


Ginger is a spayed female, white and cream Retriever mix who is just over a year old. She was brought to the shelter as a stray on February 23, but is not available for adoption. Ginger loves to play! She will need access to lots of toys to keep her entertained. She has a very friendly and sweet disposition when it comes to meeting people, but is uneasy around other dogs. Ginger will need to be introduced to new dogs on a regular basis, in a controlled environment with polite and friendly dogs in order to continue to learn appropriate meet and greet behaviour. Ginger will need an experienced owner who has the time to dedicate to her training and socialization. She would love a family with children over the age of 8, who will bring her for outdoor adventures. Parker is a neutered male, white and brown tabby Domestic Longhair cat who is about 3 years old. A good Samaritan found Parker wandering the neighbourhood on January 24 with an open wound on his face. Concerned, they brought him to the OHS in hopes that we could help him. While in our care, we treated and monitored his injuries until he was ready to be adopted. Parker is a playful but easy-going cat who loves to sleep on his hideand-perch box, and doesn’t seem to be bothered by the presence of other cats. Parker has been great with the children visiting in the Adoption Centre, and would be suitable to a family with children who know to be gentle with him. For more information about these or other animals available for adoption, please call the Adoption Centre at 613-725-3166 ext. 258 or visit

Time to make a grooming appointment

days, you’re making sure that your pet’s suffering is alleviated and that it is comfortable all the while. If you are thinking about palliative care for your dying pet, there are many practical issues that you should think about, and many questions that you should ask yourself before you decide to go this route. Your veterinarian will play a large role in the process. If you don’t have a vet, it’s your duty to get one so you can make informed decisions about the health of your animal. During the initial stages of a pet’s illness, if your veterinarian does not raise the topic of humane euthanasia, it doesn’t mean the topic is off limits. Some veterinarians may not broach the subject first, so make sure you initiate the conversation. Deciding to provide palliative care to a pet is something the whole family must agree on. The choice can be a costly one — both emotionally and financially — so everyone must be on board. Most importantly, you need to ask yourself who you are doing this for. As heartbreaking as losing a pet may be, you must always make sure that you are placing your pet’s welfare ahead of your own emotions.

Hello. My name is Boomer and I am seventeen years old. My Mom adopted me from the Ottawa Humane Society a long time ago. She said it was meant to be because we were born on the same day in January (but not the same year). My Dad is very allergic to me but when he married Mom he said that it didn’t matter one bit. Every Christmas I buy him a big box of Reactine to say thanks. As you can see from my picture I am very cute. My hobbies include sleeping and napping in my heated cat bed, rummaging in closets, licking plastic, rolling on my special mat and from time to time, being insolent. Lately I have developed a thyroid problem and must take some medicine twice a day. It tastes like chicken treats so what do I care. I know my name is Boomer but sometimes I am called the ‘Four-legged Alarm Clock’. I also have five spots.

Pet ownership brings many joys, but also tough decisions. Your pet needs love, care and devotion, and may sometimes require an ethical or moral choice be made on its behalf. Your companion animal cannot tell you when he or she is in pain and suffering, and as your pet reaches the senior stage in life, it’s importance to know your pet and his or her body language, and have a plan ready so that a tough decision is not put off too long because of emotions. Humane euthanasia can often be a very kind decision for an animal, and is certainly a more responsible and compassionate decision if you are no longer able to meet your pet’s care needs. It is important that, no matter what you decide, your animal’s welfare always comes first. If your pet has been diagnosed with a terminal illness or has begun to suffer increasingly from age-related ailments, humane euthanasia may eventually be the only option you have. Most people want to have as much time as possible with their pet before they have to say a final goodbye. Many believe that they can provide their pet with a good quality of life for some time to come. Your role is to recognize suffering and to provide care and relief to your animal. Palliative care for animals is much the same as palliative care for humans — you’re not just letting a dying pet live out its remaining
