EMC news - If there is a day the Hillcrest High School band will never forget, it is March 25, when they performed O Canada as a FedEx cargo plane transporting a pair of giant pandas touched down at Toronto’s Pearson Airport. China is allowing two of its giant pandas to spend five years at the Toronto Zoo followed immediately by another five years at the Calgary Zoo, marking the first time in more than 20 years that a giant panda has been loaned to a Canadian zoo and a first for a ten-year loan from the Chinese government. The pandas were the sole cargo on a FedEx cargo plane that flew halfway around the world from Chengdu Shuangliu to Toronto. Fifty students who make up the high school concert band left Ottawa at 4 a.m to participate in the ceremony, after it was announced they had won the FedEx Canada Panda contest. FedEx will also be donating $5,000 to Hillcrest High School for winning the contest. See PLAYING, page 2

EMC news - Ottawa police investigators seized more than 100 marijuana plants following a raid at a south end home on March 26.

The drug unit executed a search warrant on the 300 block of River Road, near Limebank Road. The total value of the seizure is estimated to be approximately $111,000, according to a police release. A 40-year-old man and a 39 year-old woman were charged jointly with production of a controlled sub-

stance as well as six charges under the Ontario Fire Protection and Prevention Act. “Once inside, police found a marijuana grow operation in the residence consisting of 100 plants,” the release read. Police are requesting anyone with information related to a suspected marijuana grow operation to call the Ottawa Police drug unit at 613-236-1222 extension 5080 or Crime Stoppers at 613-233-8477.

Music teacher Jeannie Hunter described the experience as humbling. “This is such a wonderful opportunity. Our success is a tribute to the kids’ creativity and our Hillcrest community’s support,” said Hunter, adding that the band was proud to represent Ottawa at the event. The schools were required to submit a video of their band or choir performing any song for them to have the chance to win the contest. “We really didn’t have a lot of planning time since we got to know the details on Thursday, one day before the March break,” said Hunter. “We shot it before lunch on Friday, edited it, uploaded it and that was it.” FedEx spokesperson Adrian Grundy said coordination of the panda shipment from Chengdu to Toronto took “more than 100 people” on two continents, and that the bears will be kept in “specially designed enclosures” for the duration of their more than 11,700-kilometre journey. “Obviously it caters for their needs to go to the toilet,” he said. “And it’s only carrying the pandas and their travelling bamboo and things like that.” The bears will also have water, apples, some favourite toys, two attendants and a veterinarian with them every step of the way. Teacher Hunter said the $5,000 donation is a sizeable chunk of money, certainly far more than her budget. “It is going to allow us to make a few legacy purchases,” she said. Hunter added that students will

have a say on how that money is spent. “It will be a collective decision with the kids and me,” she said. Five-year-old panda Er Shun and four-year-old Da Mao will be quarantined for 30 days at Toronto Zoo and kept away from the public until a special exhibit opens later this year. Besides winning the contest, the Hillcrest band were also awarded passes for the zoo to go back once the panda exhibits opens. “I felt a sense of disbelief in some ways when I figured out we had won, because it all happened so quickly,” said Hunter. She said the competition has energized her and the band even more. “I feel excited and motivated. It’s been great for the school spirit. It was a fantastic opportunity to bring everyone together,” said Hunter. She hailed FedEx for running the contest. “It is fantastic that FedEx thought of doing it and donating the money to a high school music program,” said Hunter. “The arts are so important and funding can be so difficult. It’s great that they thought of this as an opportunity to help other people as well.” She said the entire experience was a great surprise for her. “It is quite an unusual opportunity to play O Canada for two giant pandas,” said Hunter. “It wasn’t something that was even in my mind and then boom it happened.” With files from Torstar Wire Services

Cycling crash test helps shed light on vehicle collisions Carleton, Algonquin students work with Ottawa police on project Michelle Nash

EMC news - It took a few tries, but eventually a 180 pound dummy crashed into a speeding car at the National Research Council on March 25, the culmination of joint study between Ottawa students and police. The simulated crash was part of an eight-month-long study conducted by Carleton University engineering students and Algonquin College toolmaking students, working in conjunction with Ottawa police to help better understand exactly what happens when a cyclist and car collide. “We have a number of theories and a couple of ideas of what the data will look like, but it all depends on how the dummy hits the car,” said project coordinator Brigitte Babin, a fourth year biomedical and mechanical engineering student. The simulation had a dummy “cyclist” ride down a track, as a sedan was speeding past - with the inevitable crash occuring between the two vehicles. After three failed attempts where the dummy sailed behind or in front of the car, the fourth attempt was a success, resulting in a crash of potentially deadly proportions. Babin’s classmates, all in students in Carleton’s department of mechanMICHELLE NASH/METROLAND ical and aerospace engineering, deCarleton engineering students set up a crash simulation at the National signed and built the electronics for Research Council on March 25 with the help of the Ottawa Police Ser- the crash, while Algonquin College’s vice.

ements of building the dummy. The test involved multiple cameras located at every angle of the crash site as well as a camera on the cyclist’s helmet and the vehicle. Sensors built by the students were placed inside the dummy, in its head, chest and arms to help determine the impact of the crash. Ottawa police served as a resource for the students throughout the eight month study, which began last fall. Det. Alain Boucher of the police traffic unit participated in the study, offering up data, information and experience along the way.

It has been a really great experience and the police have been a tremendous amount of help. BRIGITTE BABIN CARLETON UNIVERSITY STUDENT

Babin said it has been this sort of help that has been crucial to the project and students’ success. “It has been a really great experience and the police have been a tremendous amount of help,” she said. On the day of the crash simulation, Boucher and the remainder of the traffic team, including the collision investigators, were present to reconstruct the crash between the sedan and the cyclist. The officers gathered the information as they would with any crash, but this time, the students had

the data to back up the officers findings. It’s this kind of collaboration that Boucher said he believes will help the police better understand accidents in the future. “We are interested in terms of the collision investigation,” Boucher said. “This is a training day for us. There is little information out there and no real world information on cyclist and vehicle accidents. This crash simulation brings us much closer to a real world situation.” According to the police, on average in Ottawa, there are more than 300 collisions reported involving vehicles and cyclists per year. With a number of bike paths crossing city streets, the segregated bike lane on Laurier Avenue and the city’s plans for expanding cycling routes and paths across the city, Boucher said collisions will be on the rise as cycling use increases. Between 2007 and 2011, there were 1,253 incidents where the cyclist was injured and a total of 12 fatalities. “We anticipate a rise in collisions (and) we are trying to be ahead of the gain,” Boucher said. “My hope is it won’t happen, but we will be prepared. We are just keeping our training up to snuff.” Ottawa paramedics, fire department and the National Research Council all helped the students on the day of the crash test. The results from the crash will be studied, and later presented by the students at the end of this semester.

Bank Street Environmental Assessment Study 3rd Public Open House )

Ali and Branden

In February 2012 the City of Ottawa initiated a Class Environmental Assessment (EA) Study for the widening of Bank Street from Leitrim Road to Rideau Road. Provincial legislation requires an EA prior to the widening of the road. Rapid growth in the south end of the city has increased traffic volumes on Bank Street and the EA will address the transportation needs of the area. The City of Ottawa’s Transportation Master Plan (TMP), the document which outlines city wide planning guidelines until 2031, identifies the widening of Bank Street to four lanes from Leitrim Road to Rideau Road. Once the EA is finalised, Council would have to identify funding in future budgets for construction. City staff will be hosting the 3rd and final Public Open House for the Bank Street Widening EA Study on Monday April 8th from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., with a formal presentation at 7:00 p.m., in the Lion’s Hall at the Fred Barrett Arena located at 3280 Leitrim Road. Residents will have the opportunity to review and comment on the recommended plan for Bank Street widening as well as ask questions and discuss the project with members of the study team. For further information on this project please visit bankstreetstudy or contact Angela Taylor, Senior Project Engineer at 613-580-2424 ext. 15210 or

Main Street Renewal Project The City of Ottawa is undertaking an Environmental Assessment for the renewal of Main Street.

The scope of the project includes the layout of the sidewalk, cycling, transit and vehicle, street lighting and streetscape improvements, and solutions for below-ground infrastructure. This will allow the consideration and review of a full range of alternative designs for the corridor. The alternative designs will range from reconstructing the street as it is, to reconstructing the street as a “Complete Street” which aims to create a street for use by all ages, abilities, and modes of travel. Safe and comfortable access for pedestrians, bicycles, transit users and the mobility-impaired is not an afterthought when designing a “Complete Street”, but an integral planning feature. It is anticipated that the designs will be completed by the end of 2013. Construction is presently planned for 2014 and 2015. The City of Ottawa will also be creating an Environmental Assessment Working Group and I would like to encourage you to participate. The working group will meet every few weeks and it is very important that the interests of Gloucester-Southgate residents are represented during this process. If you would like to find out more about how you can get involved please contact my office at 613-580-2480 or diane.deans@

Main Street is designated as an Arterial Road in the City of Ottawa Official Plan and serves as an important north-south commuter route for the residents of Gloucester-Southgate Ward. The existing street infrastructure has reached the end of its life-cycle, and the City has identified the need for reconstruction.

EMC news - Residents who came to city hall on March 25 to help the municipality figure out how to better engage with them were disappointed that the “consultation on consultations” didn’t break the city’s mould. Participants in the first session of the series were not happy they did not get a presentation on the city’s current consultation guidelines, what works and what doesn’t work from the city’s perspective. “Instead, they focused on ‘principles’ and ‘values,’ both of which were ill-defined and overlapping,” said John Dance, president of the Old Ottawa East Community Association. Other participants were angry that city staff came to them with a pre-determined set of four values such as: “The public should have an opportunity to express their views about decisions that affect their lives.” The proliferation of the word “should” throughout the draft documents bothered many participants, including Steve Clay of Alta Vista, who insisted it be changed to “must.” The city could always find a way to exercise that “should” clause and exclude citizens’ voices, said Catherine Boucher, a member of the Centretown Citizens Community Association. Glebe Community Association and Federation of Citizens’ Associations member Bob Brocklebank said citizens are tired of being treated as “window dressing” to fulfill the city’s requirement to say it consulted people.

flected the tenor of many city consultations, said several participants, including Dance. He said it’s difficult for residents to respond to the city’s request for feedback when they are not presented with “real options.” “You’re saying, ‘This is how we are going to do it,’” he said. “You need to go back farther.” Sharing information and helping citizens be informed about the issues they’re being consulted on are important, Clay said, and others agreed. Manjit Basi, one of the founders of a new community-engagement nonprofit called Citizens Academy, said, “Empowerment is a pre-requisite to collaboration.” Central Park resident Stuart Sykes agreed. If the underlying requirements and process doesn’t change, altering the way consultations are conducted won’t make much difference, he said. For instance, rezonings are not designed to reveal details of what’s planned for a new building early on, he said. “To be effective, it needs to be from the ground up,” Sykes said. Colleen Hendriks, one of the city staffers leading the public-engagement consultation, said her team wants to get all city departments on board with using the consultation toolkit that will be developed. “We do aspire that there will be improvements across the corporation (of the City of Ottawa),” she said. There was some discussion about when it is appropriate for the city to consult, versus when it is appropriate – and what it means – to collabo0307.R0011951345

rate with citizens, or simply inform them. Manor Park resident Penny Thompson said the city needs to look at everything about the process, even down to small details like ensuring consultants and city staff wear name tags to identify themselves at community meetings. Some things the city does are working, participants said. Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes was the only councillor to participate in the first session. She listed two types of consultations that seem to go smoothly: the process for redesigning roads heavily engages neighbours and road users, she said, and open house-format meetings work well when they are followed by a presentation and discussion. However, city staff is sometimes reluctant to move into the group discussion format because it can become oppositional, Holmes said. The idea of having a small working group or public advisory committee of residents, consultants, proponents and city staff that intensively reviews projects was debated. Boucher said those groups do work, but they are sometimes akin to “secret societies” because it’s unclear how the members are chosen. A number of meetings and an online survey available at will be used to create a staff report that will be reviewed by a small group of key stakeholders in the summer before it is presented to and debated by the city’s finance and economic development committee in the fall.

Preparing for your Baby We have all seen the ads. A pregnant woman glowing with a happy face, and round belly, watching kids play on the swings while she sips her decaf latte. She warmly lays a hand on her unborn child. The sun is shining. The birds are tweeting. You may ask: is this the reality of being pregnant? It looks simple! While pregnancy is a special time, it can also have emotional and physical ups and downs. While the sun is shining, and the birds are tweeting, what you do not see in the ad is what the woman is thinking. Some common thoughts of parents-to-be are: • “How am I going to prepare for this baby?” • “How do I get ready for breastfeeding?” • “How do I keep my baby safe and healthy once he/she is here???” Prenatal classes are a great way to obtain answers to many of your questions and more. Ottawa Public Health (OPH) offers online prenatal education with free companion classes for parents-to-be and those looking for a refresher. The course includes three in-person sessions, each 2 hours in length. Classes are in the evening or on Saturday mornings at four library sites. Sites include Nepean Centrepointe, Ruth E. Dickinson (Barrhaven), Alta Vista and Cumberland. These classes can:

Written by the Reproductive Health Team

• help pregnant women and their partners feel more confident about the upcoming birth; • feel better prepared for breastfeeding and; • help parents make informed decisions about labour, birth and the care of their baby. The classes are led by a public health nurse. They provide pregnant women and their partners with expert information and the chance to meet with other expectant families. Katie Souliere, a pregnant woman, recently took the OPH prenatal class at the Cumberland branch. Her and her husband said that “after participating in the prenatal classes [they] felt better prepared for baby’s arrival in terms of what to expect before, during and after the labour. [They] now feel more confident about bringing baby home…”. Katie says that while there is a lot of information available online, she and her husband “…weren’t aware of the amount of resources available in the community to support [them] with postnatal care such as breastfeeding and postpartum depression support groups.” So, grab your decaf latte, take a seat in the sun, open your computer and go to prenatal. Enroll in our free prenatal classes. It will provide you with the confidence, knowledge and breastfeeding information for your new baby.

Prevent the Spread Written by public health nurse Ginette Smith

vomiting, weight loss, pneumonia, brain damage and in rare cases, death. Older children and adults may experiencemilder symptoms but nevertheless, can still spread the infection to others. Every year in Canada, whooping cough kills 1 to 3 infants who did not receive or follow the proper vaccination schedule.

Pertussis is a highly contagious infection that affects the respiratory system and spreads easily in the air when an infected person coughs, sneezes, and talks. Symptoms are initially mild (similar to the common cold) but as the weeks progress, the mild cough may turn into a severe, violent cough, lasting weeks to months. Babies and young children are at the greatest risk of serious complications, such as breathing difficulties, choking spells,

The first dose of the pertussis vaccine is given at 2 months of age; however, babies are not fully protected until they receive all the doses of this vaccine. During this time, babies and young children are surrounded by parents, older siblings, grandparents, friends, caregivers and others who unknowingly may be infected with pertussis, and can transmit it to the child.

April 20-27, 2013, is World Immunization Awareness Week. Take this time to talk with your health care provider to see if you and your family are up-to-date. Immunization In Ontario, there were 230 cases of pertussis in 2011, and 792 cases in 2012. In Ottawa, saves lives! Protect your loved ones; there were 48 cases of pertussis in 2012 alone. get vaccinated. This is the highest number of pertussis cases reported in our city since a local outbreak occurred in 2003 . Better vaccination rate in all age groups will help control this preventable disease.


Babies and young children are routinely immunized with selected vaccines when they are 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, and 18 months. This early vaccines protect against five different diseases, including pertussis, commonly known as whooping cough.

As of August 2011, all adults from 19 to 64 years of age in Ontario who did not receive one as a teenager are eligible to receive one publicly funded dose of the tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (Tdap) vaccine to better protect adults against pertussis and importantly, to decrease the transmission of the infection to young children.

A tale lacking in substance


n the play Macbeth, Shakespeare describes life as “a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury signifying nothing.� He just as easily could have been referring to the city’s planning process: endless meetings filled with talk but often devoid of discussion. It is a process that is frustrating for the public, frustrating for city staff, and, at times infuriating for the developers. The element of conflict is baked into the recipe of site plans and rezoning applications – a development proposal never meets everyone’s vision of the character of the surrounding neighbourhood. But conflict should be an opportunity for rational discourse and a little constructive give-andtake, resulting in a compromise. Instead, it often turns into a standoff between two diametrically opposed camps. It drags on for months at community consultations and at city hall before finally (in worst case scenarios) landing at the feet of the Ontario Municipal Board. Too often we witness members of the public show up at consultation meetings armed only with emotional arguments. Bitter words are often exchanged, but little else.

If the city wants to encourage rational discourse and limit pointless debate and time spent wasted arguing lost causes at the OMB, it must start by educating the public. We sympathize with the public’s confusion about the planning process, with the city still trying to harmonize its zoning rules – something which hopefully will fall into place during the review of the Official Plan. It starts and ends with education. The city already offers planning primer courses throughout the year, explaining how planners evaluate development proposals, zoning rules, how secondary plans fit with the city’s official plan and a discussion about how the OMB works. More people might take advantage of this set of courses if they were offered throughout the city – instead of just at city hall – and working in conjunction with the various community associations that pepper the municipality. Developers, for their part, can also participate in the process, by participating in or speaking at some of these courses. Providing a forum for rational debate meets the needs of everyone –w developers, the city and the public included.


The cuddliness factor and Canadian politics


ess than a week after the tabling of his government’s budget, Stephen Harper went to Toronto to meet two pandas arriving from China. The news pictures coming out of that event were much nicer than the news pictures coming out of the budget because there were no pandas involved in the budget. Stephen Harper knew that. He didn’t get where he is by not understanding such things. Everybody looks better standing with a panda and everybody sounds better talking about pandas, even when what they say is absurd. For example, here’s what the prime minister said at the Toronto airport: “Over the coming years these pandas will help us learn more about one another while serving as a reminder of our deepening relationship, a relationship based on mutual respect and growing collaboration.� This will come as quite a surprise to the pandas, who figured that all they had to do in their lives was stay in the cage, eat bamboo, breed and get used to people in Toronto Maple Leafs caps waving at them. Now they find out they are supposed to help Canadians and Chinese learn more about each other, as well as serve as a

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town reminder of a deepening relationship. What a job description for a panda. But what a great coup for the prime minister to be at the centre of this happy event, surrounded by more photographers than ever show up at, say, the opening of a new prison. This is because pandas are cuddly -- not that you’d ever want to try to cuddle one because they are big and have sharp teeth and probably don’t understand English or French very well just yet. At a safe distance, however, pandas are more cuddly, even, than dogs. We know this because of developments in the Pooch CafÊ comic strip in the Citizen, where the dogs are deeply concerned that their capacity to be adored by people is being Published weekly by:

undermined by cute pandas. All of this is to say the prime minister chose wisely. It also suggests one of large problems confronting Canadian politicians is a shortage of pandas. All of them would like to be seen next to one and be able to make speeches about how they serve as reminders of deepening relationships. Imagine Jim Watson, mayor of Ottawa, being able to talk about pandas instead having to say something, one way or the other, about casinos. That would be such an improvement for him. Even if he had bad news to announce, such as the decision to locate a casino on the lawn of the Supreme Court, having a panda beside him when he made the announcement would make it so much more palatable. Similarly, having a panda present at the announcement of each new 23-story building in Ottawa, would make the looming shadows over residential neighbourhoods so much easier to take.

the name of the new CFL team? Who could object? Sadly, there are simply not enough pandas to go around. Already in short supply, they don’t breed as enthusiastically as they might (maybe they just like to cuddle). So just to get two to come to Canada is a pretty great thing. In the absence of pandas, the hunt is on for creatures of significant cuddliness who could serve politicians as an acceptable substitute. Our customary national symbols, the beaver and the Canada goose, have enemies. Penguins, also celebrated in Pooch CafÊ, would find our climate too warm. Clever politicians have already found a substitute: hockey players. Wasn’t Barack Obama posing with some of them just the other day?

here’s something about money. We love it and need it, but it also scares the hell out of most of us most of the time – especially at tax time. And it’s not just those of us who may have to remit funds to the government this month. Even friends who are expecting a windfall this April are feeling nervous about having a lump sum dropped into their bank accounts. Why? According to a new book released by Money Coaches Canada founders Karin Mizgala and Sheila Walkington, we’re scared when we lack control. Unstuck: How to get out of your money rut and start living the life you want, offers a ground-up guide to uncovering how you feel about money, what you should and want to be doing with it and assessing what you already know. Unfortunately, the statistics suggest most of us haven’t got a clue. “People have lost the ability to look at the value of money,� says Judith Cane, with Money Coaches Canada in Ottawa. “They’ve forgotten what the function of money is – that

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse you’re exchanging cash for a product or service.� No surprise, Cane says much of it has to do with our society’s reliance on virtual money – in the form of lines of credit and paying with plastic. “I often take clients back to using envelopes of cash,� says Cane. “Putting that $20 per hour you earned into an envelope and then taking it to the grocery store to buy food helps to create that link between what you’re making and what you’re spending.� And that link is an important one. The basic principle around money is that what comes in must be greater than what goes out. But when money never touches people’s hands, they not only lose track, but they fail to comprehend that principle. That’s when things get scary, says Cane.

“People are afraid of money because they have no idea what their situation is,â€? she explains. “If you stopped people on the street and asked if they had debt, they’d probably say yes. If you asked them when they’ll have the debt paid off, they’d have no idea. Nine out of 10 people don’t have a clue about their own net worth.â€? Cane works on the principle that once people know who the enemy is they don’t have to be afraid of it anymore. And it’s not just for people in debt. Money Coaches Canada was founded by former ďŹ nancial advisers Mizgala and Walkington in Vancouver with the goal of providing ďŹ nancial help to people who need it – not just those that have money to invest.

Congratulations to River Ward resident Emma Miskew and her teammates for winning the Bronze medal at the 2013World Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Curling Championship in Latvia. Ms. Miskew and her teammates should be proud of their accomplishment. These young women were excellent ambassadors not only for Canada, but for Ottawa as well. Please join me in giving a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;HIGH FIVEâ&#x20AC;? to Emma Miskew (Third) and her teammates Rachel Homan (Skip), Alison Kreviazuk (Second), Lisa Weagle (Lead) and Stephanie LeDrew (Alternate) for the Bronze medal. Well done team!

ELECTRIC NEWS FROM CAMPBELL FORD The first all-electric 2013 Ford Focus in Ottawa was sold by Campbell Ford, located at 1500 Carling Avenue, here in River Ward. I had fun checking out the new Ford Focus Electric at the Ottawa Gatineau International Auto Show on March 21, 2013 at the Ottawa Convention Centre. Ford Canada is expanding their line-up of hybrid and electric vehicles for 2014 and their entire line-up of hybrid and electric vehicles are for sale in Ottawa. If you or someone you know owns an electric vehicle, you can charge it up at City Hall, as part of a joint pilot initiative between Hydro Ottawa and the City of Ottawa.












It looks like spring has finally sprung! For those celebrating, I hope that you and your families enjoyed a Happy Passover and a Happy Easter.

As always, I appreciate hearing from you and encourage you to keep in touch with me as it allows me to serve you better. It is an honour and a privilege being your strong voice at City Hall.

Know thy enemy: money

to appeal to a broad range of individuals â&#x20AC;&#x201C; speciďŹ cally, those who want guidance with money thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not tied to any products, services or investments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a huge demand for ďŹ nancial planning services like this right now,â&#x20AC;? says Cane. The fact is everything about money has become more complex. Just when we think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a handle on things, the situation is apt to change. Much of it comes down to demographics. The sandwich generation means families with young children are trying to account for childcare and eldercare costs simultaneously. A high divorce rate means people are learning to raise families on a single income, at the same time dividing up what they own and, perhaps more importantly, what they owe. Young professionals are waiting longer to start families, which means they have more disposable income for longer than they did historically. And at the other end of the spectrum, the Baby Boomers are retiring en masse and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re projected to live for a very long time on their pensions. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost as though every family could use its own certiďŹ ed ďŹ nancial ofďŹ cer, says Cane.

Build a concrete home, save heating/cooling costs EMC lifestyle (NC) - Homebuilding technology is solving the high cost of heating and cooling. The traditional wood framing for walls can now be replaced by a totally different system using the pre-assembled, interlocking insulated concrete form. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our ICF system creates an envelope of superior strength, insulation, conservation, and energy efďŹ ciency,â&#x20AC;? says Todd Blyth at the ofďŹ ces of Nudura Integrated Building Technology, a Canadian leader in this ďŹ eld. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Instead of wood walls, the ICF system interlocks to create one monolithic wall with a thickness from 10 to 30 centimetres,â&#x20AC;? Blyth said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This immediately gives your house better wind and ďŹ re protection, better sound resistance, improved temperature control and many additional occupant comforts. Better still, the insulation and durability delivered can save you up to 70 per cent on your energy bills. You get a far stronger and greener house but with a warm and inviting atmosphere.â&#x20AC;? And yet, once the practicality Interlocking insulated concrete form construction provides better structural strength, insulation and and the good health of the ocenergy efficiency than traditional wood frame buildings.

cupants are assured, it is the aesthetic beauty of the house inside and out that is an equally important â&#x20AC;&#x153;dream homeâ&#x20AC;? feature. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A concrete home can be designed outside for smart-looking brick, or for more creative ďŹ nishes like stone, stucco, wood siding and more, just like a traditional house,â&#x20AC;? Blyth added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Inside, all of the beautiful architectural shapes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; like arches, bay windows and speciďŹ c door styles â&#x20AC;&#x201C; can be easily achieved for a spectacular interior design.â&#x20AC;? Building the walls with concrete is an option, he says, that needs to be decided and requested early in the planning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;ICF construction is already a decade underway, but breaking away from yesterdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s standard is still a slow process for many builders. At the construction site however, the pre-assembled concrete forms lock together, like Lego, to build the walls far quicker than wood-framing, with far less waste, so its popularity with builders is only a matter of time.â&#x20AC;?

Eco Equitable holds fabric fundraiser Sale to help raise money for new Heartwood House space in Vanier Michelle Nash

EMC news - A local charity is challenging fellow sewing and craft fanatics to grab as much fabric as they can, all while raising much needed funds for the organization. Eco Equitable program is a non-profit organization which started as a women’s sewing co-operative which uses donated and recycled material to help teach its clients how to sew and build a sewing business. The fill a bag fundraiser on April 6 at 153 Chapel St. will help Eco Equitable raise money for renovations at its new location at 404 McArthur Ave. in July. “Its whatever you can get into the bag, we will have every type of fabric you can imagine and whatever you can fit into that into that bag, what ever you can do its all for a good cause,” said executive director Tara Templin. Everything in its current fabric boutique is for sale, in-

cluding all kinds of fabric and a selection of buttons, zippers and other notions. Regularly priced fabric for $2-5 a metre and there will also be baked goods to purchase. All the money will go towards renovation costs at the new location. The new space will be double what the organization currently has at its current address at 153 Chapel St. The new space will help the quickly growing organization spread its wings, with a new fabric boutique, sewing classroom and production space. “It’s huge, we expect this to create all sorts of opportunities to increase programming space, and awareness for us,” Templin said. The charity is one of the 18 charities which run out of Heartwood House, a charity co-op currently located on Rideau Street, but will be moving to its own building on McArthur this spring. “Each organization is responsible for outfitting their

Ottawa Valley Tours

space, the renovations are quite costly so this is Eco Equitable first attempt at fundraising,” Templin said. Templin said the fundraiser will help the charity raise $10,000 to cover renovation costs associated with moving into the new location. The programming at the charity has grown over the past two years, with almost double the amount of participants and their current space in the basement on Chapel Street is tight. Eco Equitable’s new digs will have a new store front, street access and new offices. “This move presents all kinds of opportunities,” Templin said. “Revenue generation possibilities, people will be able to sign up, there will be easy access for the community, and you don’t have to go through the maze of Heartwood House to find us, we really envision this new space to become a multi-cultural hub for sewing.” Moving further east is also something the director sees as a positive, as she said she believes it will help expand further into the francophone community. The sale begins at 10 a.m. Plastic bags will be provided.


A portion of the Ogilvy building at 126 Rideau St. began to collapse over the weekend of March 23 and 24. The collapse did not affect the heritage facade of the building, which will be part of the new development of the Rideau Centre, but caused Nicholas Street between Rideau and Besserer streets to be closed. The Ministry of Labour is investigating the incident.

Report on demolition health effects goes to committee Champlain Park residents wants to see health checks performed for small infill projects Steph Willems

EMC news - The demolition of smaller structures could pose a health risk to neighbours if proper measures aren’t taken, according to a report commissioned by one community group. That’s the basis of an upcoming planning committee presentation by members of the Champlain Park Community Association, which initiated the report last summer detailing the possible risks. The report was expected to be recieved on March 26, but was deferred until a later date. When talking about intensification in Ottawa, the focus is usually on large-scale developments by highprofile builders, but small-scale infill occurs all the time on residential streets. Old or derelict properties are routinely torn down to make way for duplexes or other small-scale developments, but the materials contained within those buildings can pose a risk if they get airborne. Asbestos was used in a number of products related to home construction until the 1980s, and are almost


A partially-demolished home is seen on Carleton Avenue in Champlain Park. Community members want better enforcement of hazardous materials mitigation measures due to the amount of infill in the area. deal with the issue. In addition to the presentations, letters sent to the committee outlined the concerns and position of the association. A number of small-scale infill projects popped up in Champlain Park in recent years, similar to those occurring in other older, urban neighbourhoods. This trend, plus personal experience of a home renovation requiring decontamination measures, compelled Bankier and the association to act.

The possibility of small builders not doing due diligence and being overlooked by ministry inspectors exists, she said. “The legislation states it as a requirement, but enforcement is an issue,” said Bankier. “The only way to be sure would be to have (the substances report) shown to those who approve the demolition control application.” Bankier said there are three levels of measures taken to ensure safety on job sites with respect to hazard-

ous substances. In many cases, it is as simple as having a water truck on site to dampen down any dust that could otherwise get airborne before cleanup is completed. “We did have an instance in Champlain Park with a complaint-based inspection that showed a review wasn’t done,” said Bankier. As the report going to committee is for information purposes, the association hopes it, plus the presentations, will encourage discussion and possible action on the matter.

definitely present in older homes undergoing demolition. The provincal legislation demands home builders take steps to prevent exposure to such designated substances, but Lynne Bankier and Heather Pearl, co-chairwomen of the association say the city isn’t ensuring builders are complying with those measures. “There is a potential for exposure if we don’t have proactive identification of hazardous substances,” said Bankier prior to the committee presentation. Last July, the association requested Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs inquire on their behalf why the city doesn’t require a designated substances report when a demolition permit is approved. Responses to a number of related questions are contained in the report. The city’s building code services branch responded that no legislative gap exists that warrant it to take on new responsibilities with regards the issue. The branch enforces building code laws, but hazardous substances fall under provincial legislation such as the Occupational Health and Safety Act, meaning the Ministry of Labour would be the regulatory body to

Beechwood ‘phoenix’ building set to rise from fire’s ashes Residents still concerned about less retail and too little visitor parking Laura Mueller


The city’s planning committee gave the OK to this building, designed by Prishram Jain from the Toronto firm TACT Architecture Inc., to replace the building at 19 Beechwood Ave. that was destroyed by fire in March of 2011. Lindquist worried that Vaughn Street would become a trafficclogged bypass for people trying to get in and out of the building. The building’s design shows eight storeys with a partial ninth storey for a total of 27 metres – just under the limit imposed by the federal view plane between the Parliament Buildings and Poet’s Hill at the Beechwood cemetery. Members of the public who presented to the planning committee on March 26 said they hoped Minto would consider dressing up the building with red brick and materials and massing that reflect the district, as called for in a community design plan. Building on the site would not be complete until late 2015 to early 2016.

approximately 1,622 square metres of retail space in the building. “The corner space will be a café or restaurant,” Jain said. “The rest has yet to be determined. The café spot will include a cutout in the corner of the building at Beechwood Avenue and MacKay Street that will serve as a patio, Jain said. Other residents were concerned about the traffic and parking issues the new complex would create. Minto plans to provide 157 below-ground parking spaces for the 157 residential units and five visitor parking spaces. There would be an additional 26 above-ground spots for the retail uses and 88 spaces for bicycles. Julie Cliffe told the planning committee that the visitor parking is a problem because it would be full even if two of the 157 homes hosted a dinner party on the same night. “Under-providing parking for residents would be great, but not the short term-parking,” said Cliffe, adding that would be a preferable way to encourage the residents to use active forms of transportation.

EMC news - The site of the Beechwood Avenue fire is set to become home to a new building after the planning committee approved an eight-storey retail and condo structure. But New Edinburgh residents still worry that the 27-metre tall structure clad in light-coloured brick and glass won’t fit into their neighbourhood or offer the mix of small shops they came to rely on at the former retail strip. “We are very grateful to Minto for their interest in the site,” said David Sacks, the president of the New Edinburgh Community Alliance. “But in an effort to close the deal, has the city been willing to give away too much?” Calling the property just east of the St. Patrick Bridge a “focal point in the community,” another community member, Catherine Lindquist, also worried that the developer, Minto, is only planning for around three larger retail spaces in the building. Before a devastating fire destroyed the previous building in March of 2011, it housed 10 retailers, including a local food service, watch repair shop, dry cleaners, barber shop, diner and a Home Hardware store. “I can’t tell you how much people are missing that marketing, especially the hardware store … We do have a bit of a blank canvas to work with and we’re looking forward to that,” Lindquist said, adding that 19 Beechwood Ave. will be a “phoenix rising from the ashes.” But the project’s architect, Prishram Jain from the Toronto firm TACT Architecture Inc., assured councillors on the planning committee that the developer has not yet created a retail plan nor decided how to divide the

EMC news - A rare, last-minute agreement between the Centretown community association’s executive and a group of developers did not impress some residents -- or the city’s planning committee. The committee approved a new community design plan for the area on March 26 that was three years in the making. After working alongside the planners charged with leading the study, the Centretown Citizens Community Association formed an unheard-of alliance with a handful of property owners and developers represented by prominent planning consultants from FoTenn to offer their agreement on proposed changes to the plan during the committee’s meeting. “I think we all recognize that the process hasn’t been perfect,” association president Jordan Charbonneu. “We tried to come up with something worthy of Centretown.” The 13-point, seven-page document outlines suggested changes to the plan, including more protection for “heritage clusters” and a proposal to include opportunities for small public open spaces on private land as part of developments. The community-developer agreement also suggested jettisoning a plan to allow height exemptions for landmark city-defining buildings. But two Centretown residents waited throughout the day to tell the planning committee that the “agreement” reached by the association and developers was done in secret and doesn’t reflect residents views or their three years of participation in refining the Centretown plan. “Nothing more than a private deal reached between developer interests

and self-appointed negotiators,” said Centretown resident Deborah Hanscom. The deal was never publicized or endorsed by the community association’s members, including herself, Hanscom said – only the executive board. Neither councillors nor those in charge of drafting the city’s plan saw the agreement until a day or two before the committee met. Planning committee chairman Coun. Peter Hume said the association-developer plan and other suggestions made by delegates at planning committee will be reviewed by staff and councillors could choose to put those ideas to council as amendments when full council votes on the plan next month. BUILDING A DENSE COMMUNITY

The development of Ottawa’s downtown will follow a unique path due to the federal government’s restrictions on blocking the view of the Parliament buildings, said George Dark, the consultant in charge of the plan. Instead of buildings reaching the tallest heights in the and getting shorter farther away from downtown, the federal rules mean building heights in Ottawa will go the opposite way, Dark said. The plan suggests the tallest buildings – up to 25 storeys – should go on the outskirts of Centretown, around Catherine Street. Buildings of 16 to 21 storeys would be allowed in the north end of the core around Lisgar and Cooper streets, while most of the core of the neighbourhood would be allowed to have buildings of up to nine storeys.

EMC arts - Grade 11 students at Canterbury High School are looking forward to introducing young children ages 4 to 10 to the magic of theatre. The schools drama program will be present a children’s theatre festival on April 13 with performances starting at 10 a.m. “Each year our school’s drama program puts on a children’s theatre festival,” said Sydney Hartford, one of the theater producers. The festival features six plays: Grumpalumps and Adventures in Dreamland for ages 4 to 6, Stubborn Spencer’s Space Adventure and Arden is Afraid for ages 6 to 8 and Baba

Yaga and Sidekick for children ages 8 to 10. All shows are written, directed, and performed by arts students. “I am extremely excited. This is one of our biggest productions that we all look forward to,” said Hartford. The festival will also include games, entertainment, and food for sale. There is no admission fee, but donations are welcomed. “Our main goal is to ensure children have fun,” said Hartford. She added that children should expect some great shows, entertainment, great costumes and acting. “We have worked very hard to prepare it and we look forward to having many children,” said Hartford.

New plan for Petrie Islands Laura Mueller

EMC news - Large events at Petrie Islands should be limited to the current three annual festivals to minimize impacts on the environment there, says a new conservation plan adopted by the city last week. Petrie Islands is a 291-hectare site composed of alluvial islands, wetlands and forests in the Ottawa River. The islands were formed when large deposits of silt and rock washed against the banks of the river. It is recognized as a provincially significant wetland. The goal of the plan is to continue to have the site serve as a popular recreation area while protecting its natural features. The biggest event held at Petrie is the Canada Day celebration, which attracted 24,000 people in 2009. Orléans Coun. Bob Monette said the community is very proud of events like Carivibe and wants to see them continue. “This report recommends that we maintain the existing and be very careful about adding any new ones,” said Dan Chenier, city parks, recreation and culture general manager. “The intention is to focus the large festivals as much as possible in the sand bowl … It’s just simply good planning.” A large influx of people onto the islands creates problems with control of public access, ensuring emergency vehicles can get in, controlling alcohol consumption near the water, dealing with noise pollution and mitigating conflicts with other people using the

area, the report says. The site is also a popular recreational area, especially in the summer. There are a number of beaches, multi-use pathways, a boat launch, a playground, an interpretation centre and picnic area. There are already washrooms and a new snack bar is also being developed. One of the challenges from more people using the area over the next 25 years will be having to manage more waste. There is already a demand for recycling facilities says the report prepared by city staff. Managing inappropriate activities such as illegal parking, using motorized boats and walking dogs will also be important, according to the report. Reducing erosion of the beach will be critical as well, the report says. Flooding, wind and a lack of shorelinestabilizing plants contribute to erosion, but human use is the biggest factor. The plan includes strong protection of 48 per cent of the site as a “primary conservation” area where no development is allowed and public access is discouraged. This area includes the south islands and some of the west islands, as well as the turtle pond and Muskrat Bay (Grandmaitre Ecological Reserve). The recreation area will compose 10 per cent of the total site, including Steumer Park, Al Tweddle picnic area, the Friends of Petrie Island Interpretive Centre and the recreational pathway corridor on the mainland. Certain activities like dog walking and cycling may only per permit-

ted in areas such as the Queenswood Forest. There are also recommendations of subtle vegetation planting tactics that can be used to reduce the goose population in Stuemer Park. Low-impact recreational activities, including fishing, will be allowed in part of the north and east islands – about 11 per cent of the total area – and also part of the Grandmaitre Ecological Reserve. Non-motorized boats and low-speed boats with a maximum speed of five kilometres per hour will be allowed in the channel that separates the mainland from the islands. Beaching crafts anywhere other than designated boat launches will be discouraged. The city has been working on the plan since 2010. All this can only be accomplished in partnership with community members and groups, the reports says. The plan includes a need for: • $40,000 for signs and a public-awareness program about the role of the islands and visitor opportunities • $50,000 of improvements to the trail network • Between $500,000 and $1 million to widen the access road into the Petrie Islands to improve pedestrian, cycling and emergency-vehicle access. The narrow causeway onto the islands creates conflicts between vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians walking down from the nearest bus stop at North Service Road. The city hasn’t allocated any more towards those goals yet.


Crumbling tower A portion of the Ogilvy building at 126 Rideau St. began to collapse over the weekend of March 23 and 24. The collapse did not affect the heritage facade of the building, which will be part of the new development of the Rideau Centre, but caused Nicholas Street between Rideau and Besserer streets to be closed. The Ministry of Labour is investigating the incident.

Lansdowne construction noise may run through the night Council OKs noise exemption to allow concrete pouring until 1 a.m. Laura Mueller

EMC news - Glebe residents will have to put up with occasional construction noise at night as workers begin to pour concrete at Lansdowne Park. City council OKed a noise exemption to allow concrete work to carry on until 1 a.m. every night as necessary for the remainder of construction at the site, which is expected to last until 2015. Residents will be notified of the exception and then prior to each in-

stance when work is expected to go late. Notice will be sent to residents and posted on the city’s website, But Capital Coun. David Chernushenko said it’s high time the city looked at offering hotel rooms for residents who are continuously bombarded with late-night construction noise approved by council. “We can’t continue to say ‘It’s just one more time,’ ” said the councillor, adding he intends to pursue options for getting council to support his hotel-room plan. Marco Manconi, the manager in charge of the Lansdowne project, said late-night concrete pouring would likely only be done a total of two or three times. The parking garage, stadium and towers require large amounts of concrete that must be poured continuously – sometimes for as long

as 24 hours – for the best results, he said. “The way the project has been designed requires these long pours,” he said. CONCRETE POURING

Related concrete finishing work will also be allowed to go on until 1 a.m. and that type of work will happen three or four times each month, Manconi said. That type of work won’t be too obtrusive, he said. Once workers and equipment are on site, the work itself won’t continue to create noise into the night. The exemption is important to ensure Lansdowne work stays on schedule, said Coun. Steve Desroches, who introduced the motion. Chernushenko was the only councillor to dissent on the noise exemption approval, which he did “out of

impact on people.” Chernushenko said he asked Manconi to promise that work will not be done at night unless it is an absolute necessity.

Why eat organic?

Continued from page 18


An organically grown food means no preservatives, chemicals or pesticides were used. current antibiotics resistance observed in humans is the direct result of the use of growth hormones and medications given to cattle and pigs raised for slaughter. This is just one of the reasons why organic food is increasingly popular among consumers. An organic product does not contain any more vitamins than a similar non-organic product. A carrot is still a carrot, whether it’s organic or not. Choosing to buy organic is based solely on ecological

and social reasons. Buying an organic carrot means knowing exactly what is on your plate. Even better, buying locally produced organic foods means encouraging local producers and reducing the amount of greenhouse gases produced by the transportation of food over long distances. What a great way to contribute directly to the good health of our country and make the most of Mother Nature’s bounty. Newspaper Toolbox

To make density work downtown, the city needs to come up with a logical plan of how – and where – it will provide necessary services and access to amenities like recreation and schools as Centretown’s population continues to grow, Dark said. The plan includes allowing some commercial uses in the central core of the neighbourhood that’s currently zoned only for residential uses. That bothered the Centretown Citizens Ottawa Corporation, a non-profit housing group. Dark’s plan asks the city to allow zoning flexibility to encourage a couple of landmark structures to be built in Centretown. Those proposals would be subject to review by some sort of panel or competition to ensure they would make “an incredible addition to the public realm … the kind of thing you’d include in a book,” Dark said. “Just tall buildings would not qualify,” he added.

The vibrancy of Ottawa’s core is also supported by the two low-rise “shoulder” neighbourhoods to its west and east (the Golden Triangle), and that should be protected, Dark’s plan says. MUSEUM PARK

By supporting the Centretown community design plan, Ottawa can send a message to the federal government that the city has a strong desire to see both the east and west lawns of the Museum of Nature restored as public park space, Dark said. The museum has said it has long-term plans to do that, but has not received funding support from the federal government needed to build an underground parking garage. The east lawn is currently paved as the museum’s parking lot and last year, the west lawn was converted into temporary staff parking. “Frankly, it broke my heart when I saw the western lawn of the Museum of Nature turned

into a parking lot for 150 cars,” Dark said. Hume worried about the implications of ordering the federal government what to do with its land, but Dark said it’s necessary to send that message. “It’s putting us in the direct line of fire of a federal institution,” Hume said. TWO-WAY METCALFE

A “quick win” that would make a splash for Canada’s 150th birthday celebration in 2017 would be to convert Metcalfe into a two-way street, Dark said. It would create a grand route connecting two storied national institutions: Parliament Hill and the Museum of Nature, especially because traffic coming off Highway 417 is already disrupted by the way the street wraps around the museum, Dark said. “It would be a great place to gather,” he said. “It would be great to do an inner city demonstration of a complete street.”


EMC lifestyle - The organic food and drink industry has expanded rapidly, experiencing an average growth of 20 per cent per year on a global scale. What motivates people to buy organic foods? Health, wholesomeness, and respect for the environment are sure to be found at the top of the list. An organic-certified food is produced without the use of any chemical products. The difference between organic and non-organic foods is the absence of all chemical pesticides, herbicides, and preservatives. Eating organic, like our ancestors did, is the only way to avoid the involuntary consumption of substances that are potentially hazardous to our health. Did you know that over time, the ingestion of many food industry chemical substances can lead to a weakening of the immune system and have harmful effects on the mental, cognitive and physical development of children? In addition, numerous studies have shown that the

Fentanyl dose, availability may be cut: expert Drug abused locally could be de-listed by province Nevil Hunt

EMC news - An expert on a national drug panel believes the Ontario government may reduce access to fentanyl through dosing limits and by removing the drug from the list of those available under the provincial drug plan. Fentanyl is a manmade opioid that is up to 100 times more powerful than morphine and comes in patch form in doses up to 100 micrograms. The patch is meant to slowly deliver the drug to patients dealing with chronic pain over a period of 48 to 72 hours. Fentanyl has caused addiction and death when people smoke the gel inside the patch, which delivers the patch’s full dose in a few breaths. The Manotick community has seen the drug misused locally and one young man died in 2012 after smoking the drug. A string of home break-ins was also linked to fentanyl abusers who needed money to buy the drug. Dr. Meldon Kahan, medical director of the Women’s College Hospital in Toronto, is a member of a national group that released First Do No Harm: Responding to Canada’s Prescription Drug Crisis. The report, released on March 27 in Ottawa, lays out a 10-year national strategy to reduce the harms caused by prescription drug abuse. In response to questions about Fentanyl abuse in south Ottawa, federal Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq refused to say if a prescription drug could be removed from the market as a result of the expert committee’s work. “It’s a complex process,” Aglukkaq said of the panel’s ongoing research and future recommendations, adding that ensuring patients have access to drugs they need is

important. Kahan called fentanyl “convenient but dangerous,” and suggested an outright federal ban on fentanyl might not be needed. He offered some hope that Ontario will unilaterally address the abuse of the drug in this province. “Maybe the 100-microgram (fentanyl) patch is not the safest option,” Kahan said during the press conference as the First Do No Harm report was released. “It may not simply be a matter of Health Canada banning a particular product.” Following the press conference, Kahan said he believes Ontario’s Health Ministry is reviewing the dose limits on fentanyl, which could see the amount of drug per patch reduced. That could reduce the amount of the drug redirected to people who misuse fentanyl.

We’ve seen an increase in substance abuse in Ontario ... People are dying. DR. MELDON KAHAN MEDICAL DIRECTOR WOMEN’S COLLEGE HOSPITAL

More importantly, Kahan said Ontario could remove coverage of fentanyl from the provincial drug plan. That would mean doctors could still prescribe the drug, but patients whose drugs are paid for by the province would have to pay for fentanyl out of their own wallets. That could prompt many legitimate fentanyl users to request their doctor to prescribe painkillers in other forms, reducing the amount available for misuse. “It’s up to the (provincial) Ministry (of Health) to rethink these very carefully,” Kahan said of fentanyl’s dosage and financial coverage. Earlier, Kahan said Ontario has seen a big jump in the number of people seeking treatment for opiate addiction. “We’ve seen an increase in sub-

The co-chairs of the National Advisory Council on Prescription Drug Misuse said all Canadians have a part to play in reducing the misuse of drugs, starting in the nation’s bathrooms. Carolyn Davison of Nova Scotia’s health department said the

medicine cabinets of friends and family are the source of many drugs that end up being abused. First Do No Harm includes 58 recommendations and more are expected as the panel continues its work. In the short term, Canadians can expect to see more public education about safe storage of prescription drugs. Michel Perron is CEO of the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse, which partnered with the NAC to produce First Do No Harm. “Canadians have an increasing appetite for these drugs,” he said of opi-

ates, adding that it remains important to get drugs to those who need them. “But the situation cannot carry on as it is. First Do No Harm is a roadmap to change and a clear signal of where we need to go and how to get there.” NAC co-chair Dr. Susan Ulan of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta said First Do No Harm has clear objectives. “Our goal is to get the right medication to the right people for the right reasons,” Ulan said.

Local kids to mark 70th Battle of the Atlantic anniversary Annette Bellamy

EMC arts - Twenty-three young choristers from south Ottawa will be among the 100voice Viva and Concert Choirs of the Ottawa Children’s Choir participating in a ceremony at the National War Memorial to mark the 70th anniversary of the Battle of the Atlantic on May 5. Under the guidance of their musical director, Allison Prowse, the children are currently working hard to memorize and finesse their singing of the naval hymn, “Eternal Father, strong to save.” The Battle of the Atlantic lasted the entire length of Second World War, but the turning point came in May 1943, when the tide finally turned in favour of the Allies. Keeping open the shipping lanes for allied convoys carrying military equipment and

supplies from North America to Europe was critical to the successful outcome of the war. Merchant ships were under constant threat from German U-boats. British Prime Minister Winston Churchill said the U-boat peril was the only thing that really frightened him during the war. Royal Canadian Navy corvettes and destroyers provided escorts for allied supply ships along the entire convoy routes to Iceland, Britain and Russia. By 1943, thanks to technological advances the U-boats could be more easily detected. With the assistance of the longrange B-24 Liberator bomber the Allies gained the upper hand and the threat was diminished. Tha Battle of the Atlantic took a heavy toll and victory came at a high price. About 1,600 merchant navy personnel

were killed, 24 RCN vessels were sunk, and approximately 2,000 RCN officers and men and 752 members of the Royal Canadian Air Force lost their lives. The annual ceremony held on the first Sunday of May honours the memory of those who gave their lives and pays respect to the veterans of the Battle of the Atlantic. The choristers of the Ottawa Children’s Choir are privileged to participate and will sing the naval hymn during the laying of wreaths. To the veterans these young people represent the future for which they fought and for which so many of their comrades paid the ultimate sacrifice.

At night, using the outhouse was a scary proposition


MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories Mother complained endlessly, a new one was built by Old Herman, who was considered an outhouse authority out there in Northcote for reasons which escaped me at the time. It was after the second hole was built that my sister Audrey pointed out the bevelled seat Old Herman was famous for. Well, the bevelled seat did little to endear the outhouse to Mother and did less for me, who still dreaded going out once night had settled in. Old Herman had put a latch on both the inside and outside of the door too, which was a vast improvement over the stone on the floor that you shoved with your foot to keep the door closed once you got seated. Yes, the new outhouse was an improvement, but Mother still lamented daily about how it was “an uncivilized way of

life” which she never quite got used to. My friend Joyce also had a store-bought roll of real toilet paper in her indoor bathroom. It hung on a wire holder on the wall and even when I didn’t have to go, I never failed to use the bathroom when I visited her house. I would reef off a piece of that store-bought toilet paper, just to witness the sheer luxury of the whole experience. Our toilet paper was the no-longer current issue of the Eaton’s catalogue. Father would drive a spike through the upper left corner of the thick book and feed a piece of heavy binder-twine through the hole, and hang it on a nail on the inside near the door. An entire page was never fully torn out, and by the time the catalogue was well used up, it was almost useless. But it



uring the day, the outhouse held little terror for me. It was at night, when it was pitch black outside, that I dreaded the small clapboard building that sat like a sentry behind a cluster of cedar trees in our back yard. Mother hated the outhouse for an entirely different reason. After living in New York for 18 years, she thought going outside to the bathroom was right up there with drinking tea from a saucer or wearing a soiled apron when company came to the back door. “Uncivilized. That’s all it is, just plain uncivilized,” was her constant lament. Well, we had no choice out there in the back woods of Renfrew County. Our chances of having a flush toilet, like my little friend Joyce had in her brick house, were absolutely nil. We had no running water and there was no electricity or telephone. The very thought of having a flush toilet in the house was like dreaming the Depression wasn’t happening! For the longest time when I was very little, I remember our outhouse having only one hole. But eventually, after

was all we had. Well, except at Christmas time.This was when Mother would ask Mr. Briscoe if she could have the little orange wrappers that came around the oranges he brought in to his General Store only at Christmas. They were only about six inches square, but she would iron them flat and put them in the back-tothe-wall cupboard in a neat little pile and they replaced the Eaton’s catalogue in the outhouse only when we had company. We children were well warned not to use the orange papers -- they were there for a higher clientele. A big pail of lime sat in a corner of the little black outhouse and we were instructed to use a dipper of it often. I confess, I found that chore had little appeal to me. During the day, I had little fear of going into the outhouse, but once it got dark at night, I was filled with dread. So as soon as the daylight started to fade, I made awfully sure I made a trip out behind the trees to the little building. But the very thought of going through the entire night without emptying my bladder was all it took to create an urgent

need. This was when I would beg Audrey to come with me. She thought I was old enough at five or six to go on my own, so I would ask her to light the lantern even thought it had yet to get absolutely dark out. I would go through the summer kitchen and then the wood

So going out to the outhouse became a constant challenge for me once it got dark at night. There was always the Johnny pot under the bed, but to use it before we retired was out of the question. It was there for emergencies, Mother said. I couldn’t think of a more

Emerson, whose mission in life seemed to be to scare the living daylights out of me, would always warn me to stay clear of the coyotes or the big black bear he assured me would like nothing better than to haul a young girl off to the bush. shed, a long-about way of getting there, because that way I was under cover for most of the trip. My brother Emerson, whose mission in life seemed to be to scare the living daylights out of me every chance he got, would always warn me to stay clear of the coyotes or the big black bear he assured me would like nothing better than to haul a young girl off to the bush.

dire emergency than forcing a young terrified girl out in the dark at night to go to the privy. Like the silos that were on every farm, the tin mailboxes at the end of the lanes, the hay lofts, the pumps over the wells in the middle of the yards and piles of manure at the back of every barn, the outdoor privy was very much a sign of the times during the 1930s. Each very much a necessity for our very survival.

Active thinking leads to better grades News Canada

EMC news - All students are active thinkers by nature, but not all students know how to think actively when it comes to classroom learning or at-home studying. According to Oxford Learning’s CEO and founder, Dr. Nick Whitehead, this is because, like many other school skills (such as studying, organization, and focus) active thinking is a skill that students need to be shown how to use. “Active learning is not a skill restricted to the classroom. Children (and adults, too) should

always be thinking about the world around them. In fact, the more that children develop this skill outside the classroom, the more they are able to apply it in class.” Dr. Whitehead outlines three simple steps for students to follow to practice their active thinking skills: * Before the activity, whether it’s doing a craft or sitting down in class, students should pause to try reflect on what they already know about what they are going to do. This primes the brain to get it ready learn something new. * During the activity students

should ask themselves questions to draw connections or highlight details, like “What is this similar to?” * After the activity students can reflect on what they just learned. This can be done by creating summary notes. Students should attempt to draw similarities, no matter how random. Dr. Whitehead says that parents can encourage active thinking by prompting conversations about learning and by asking the right questions. Instead of asking, “how was school?”, more specific questions such as “how was math class?”

Thank you! Together, we’re strong in the fight against cancer.

Latest plans for Rideau St. condo tower revealed Michelle Nash

EMC news - Richcraft Homes showed off its latest plans for a condominium tower proposed for the corner of Rideau and Cobourg Streets at the monthly Action Sandy Hill meeting on March 25. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This proposal has many community focal points,â&#x20AC;? said Miguel Tremblay, a planning consultant for Fotenn working on behalf of Richcraft. The plans show a five-storey podium fronting Rideau and Cobourg streets, stepping back to 18-storeys at the highest point. An additional fourstorey building will front onto Besserer Street. Action Sandy Hill, along with other area community associations, met with Richcraft

a few months ago to discuss the design and plans. At that time, the Action Sandy Hill planning committee asked representatives from the developer to meet with the community to discuss the proposal. This is the second time Richcraft has proposed a building for the site. Back in late 2002, a nine-storey building was proposed and approved by the city. The decision was quickly appealed to the Ontario Municipal Board by Action Sandy Hill in 2003, on the grounds the project was taller than the current zoning height for the site. The appeal was rejected by the OMB in June 2004, but the lot remained undeveloped and no new plans were proposed until now. The new proposal, Tremblay told those at the meeting, offers what Richcraft feels is a better use of the property. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the end, Richcraft can build a nine-storey slab, but I think the important thing to think about is that Richcraft is saying we can actually do this better,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Richcraft is seeking amendments to the Official Plan and a zoning bylaw to build the mixuse development. The proposal will add 1207.74 square metres of retail space to Rideau Street with opportunities for patio space and a potential courtyard. The proposed number of units would be 226, with 210 bicycle spaces and 264 parking spaces, all below ground. Preliminary designs are simple, but Tremblay said the project architect is prepared to rework the facade to make it suitable for the neighbourhood. The proposal lacks a few elements, including amenity space, but Richcraft said the close proximity to MacDonald Gardens will make the lack of green space around the building less of an issue. Many residents who attended the meeting expressed displeasure for the height of the building, indicating the development could be just the beginning of a long line of tall buildings in the neighbour-

Video games make you a better parent EMC news - Most people think video games are just entertainment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a way to pass time and escape from the real world. But for parents, gaming can be more than that. Turn video games into an opportunity for quality, engaged parenting: â&#x20AC;˘ Play with your kids. This is not specific to video games, but video games provide the opportunity to share an interest with your child. By playing two-player co-operative games you can discuss strategies with your child, or share in a victory over the other team. By playing games together, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re

learning how to communicate better with your child, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re learning how to work together to solve problems. â&#x20AC;˘ Talk about the game. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just sit and play together. Discuss the problems in the game, and the gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heroes and villains. How does your child feel about how their character is being treated by the bad guys? Exploring the themes of the game can give you insight into similar problems your child might be facing at school or with friends. What do they think about the landscape and scenery in a game, or what level has the best music? This


will help you learn more about their interests, or discover a hidden talent. â&#x20AC;˘ Let the game continue after the console is powered down. Use game characters, story lines and worlds to provide examples that will help your child relate to real world problems. Would their favourite character do poorly on that big math test, or instead â&#x20AC;&#x153;level upâ&#x20AC;? by studying hard? Skills for successful gaming â&#x20AC;&#x201C; setting goals, practicing tasks, and executing plans â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are valuable in everyday life as well. News Canada

sion residents have for Rideau Street needs to take place. President Christopher Collmorgen informed residents in attendance that Action Sandy Hill has no official position on the development yet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a learning experience for us,â&#x20AC;? he said.



The re-zoning and Official Plan amendments are subject to the approval of planning committee. Richcraft would then submit its site plan application, at which time Tremblay said another public consultation would take place to discuss more details of the project.

United Way announces $30M campaign total Overall priority goal donations fall short Michelle Nash

EMC news - The United Way Ottawa announced its campaign goal total this week, celebrating surpassing its goal by thousands. The United Way Ottawa announced it has raised $30,334,000 for its 2012-13 fundraising community campaign. The total exceeds the $30 million goal the United Way set in September. United Way board chairman, Jamie McCracken congratulated donors for all the hard work and money raised. “This is an amazing total for this year’s campaign,” McCracken said. United Way Ottawa changed the way the way the organization allocated funding raised from its annual United Way Ottawa Campaign more than two years ago, creating goal priorities and criteria to appeal to donors. Although the campaign was extended this year for the first time, with an additional 10 weeks for donors to contribute, the money raised,

however fell short on total donations available for investment in its priority goals. McCracken explained this is in part because unrestricted donations continue to decline. The United Way appealed to donors at the announcement to help raise the remaining short fall of $800,000 before the campaign is officially complete on March 31. The campaign volunteers were taking to the phones to call previous donors who had yet to give. “We are still hopeful,” McCracken said. Co-chairs of the United Way Ottawa 2012-13 Campaign, Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury and Majic 100 and CTV Ottawa Morning Live host Angie Poirier were on hand at the announcement to celebrate the total and reflect on the campaign. For the councillor, he said he enjoyed the opportunity to meet organizations and people in a different setting than through the city lens. “You think you know your community, until you go out there,” Fleury said. “With United Way its a different perspective, people are more open, conversations are much gives you a different insight.” The two were dubbed leaders of the next generation of donors, and made their own personal goals for

said. “You have given light to the role each of us can play in improving the lives of others and to the power we have collectively to improve our community in the long term.”

More than 1000 workplaces were involved in the campaign. Innovapost and PCL Constructors Canada Inc. attended the event, highlighting their own successes in the campaign.

University of Ottawa students Bushra Khan, 21, left, Rebekah Schultz, 20, are co-chairing this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Spirit Awards, which recognize Ottawa youth from ages 12 to 21.

EMC news - The Spirit of the Capital awards are shaping up for their 16th year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but with new award categories and a new gala location. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s co-chairs, University of Ottawa students Bushra Khan, 21 and Rebekah Schultz, 20, have been volunteering at Youth Ottawa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; formerly Child and Youth Friendly Ottawa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to revamp the event to support the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new name. The new award categories, such as global innovation, reflect the growing variety of projects youth are involved in, and a more accurate representation of projects older youth are involved in. The awards are open to youth 12 to 21 from Ottawa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a hidden Ottawa tradition,â&#x20AC;? said Khan, who is from Craig Henry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to cater to not just the all-stars. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to recognize the small things.â&#x20AC;? Youth who win each award, and the runner up, will be invited to a meet and greet with one another ahead of time, and then the gala awards event at the downtown Ottawa Convention Centre on May 21. This year, the evening will host a mix and mingle-style reception to give the award winners a chance to network with community leaders. This year, both Mayor Jim Watson and former governor general MichaĂŤlle Jean will be attending. Ottawa beatboxer Julia Dales, along with other local youth, will also be performing at the gala. The eight-person committee has been accepting nominations until September, and will take them until April 8. They then work with the Youth Ottawa board to select the winners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some people think that youth are lazy,â&#x20AC;? said Schultz. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are events to recognize youth that are phenomenal.

Khan won a Spirit Award herself in 2009 for her community in caring campaign for the public school board, and stayed involved with the organization. Schultz volunteered two years ago at the event, and then joined the planning committee the following year. The entire organizing committee for the youth awards is made up of Ottawa youth. This is the second year that the pair have co-chaired the awards, but the first year for the gala to be held at the Convention Centre. They have also streamlined the application process, making a new application that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as labour intensive. Organizers are pushing to include more youth in the upper end of the age spectrum this year, with both of the capitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s universities as title sponsors. The 16 youth honoured, two in each category, will no doubt each have their own story of overcoming obstacles or creating amazing projects, the co-chairs said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The youth being recognized are incredible,â&#x20AC;? said Schultz.

Planning for the invasive emerald ash borer Tyler Costello

EMC news- Kanata-area residents packed into a small room in the Mlacak Centre to hear about how they can best protect their areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ash trees from the dreaded emerald ash borer on March 27. The meeting, organized by Ecology Ottawa and the Kanata Lakes Community Association, heard from various speakers, including Jason Pollard, senior forester of the city of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forestry planning protection. The ash borer, a wood-boring beetle that attacks all native species of ash trees, was first discovered in Ottawa in 2008 and is thought to have moved from Asia to North America through the movement of wood materials, explained Pollard. He said the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan to deal with the ash borer involves treating trees with TreeAzin, a biological insecticide derived from the neem tree â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a native of India, and planting different species of trees to replace dying ash trees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are different strategies for rural and urban areas and we came to find out what a good strategy would be,â&#x20AC;? said Judy Henry, who owns a 10-hectare property in West Carleton with hundreds of ash trees. At a cost of about $200 a tree, TreeAzin would not be an option for Henry. The application of TreeAzin involves drilling several holes in a treeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s base and injecting the insecticide through the holes. The process needs to take place between the months of May and August, after ash trees have started to transpire or draw water from the soil, making it easier for the insecticide to be sucked up from the treesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; base, said Sean Bark-

er, a certified arborist and director of treefeed. ca. Getting information to unaware homeowners, and people taking the issue too lightly are the biggest hindrances to stopping the ash borerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spread, he said. Mario Poirier, whose personal research into the number of ash trees in his area was part of what led the Kanata Lakes Community Association to hold the meeting, said most people in his community werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even aware that they had ash trees on their properties. Poirier counted about 160 homes his area that had ash trees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whenever an ash borer is on the front page, I get tons of calls the next day,â&#x20AC;? said Barker. He often speaks at community meetings about the ash borer and said he will probably treat around 10,000 ash trees with TreeAzin in Ontario this year. It is not yet know how effective the insecticide is, said Pollard, but the city has treated over 2,300 trees of an estimated 70,000 ash trees on city streets and parks, an estimated 20 to 25 per cent of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tree population. The city plans to continue identifying and treating ash trees in the next couple of months. If you have an ash tree on your property Barker advises you to call an arborist to figure out your best option, he also recommends speaking to your neighbors. Many companies that treat ash trees with TreeAzin offer group discounts.

Ottawa’s Taste For Life event swinging south Emma Jackson

EMC news - Almost everyone wants to go south for their anniversary, and A Taste For Life is no exception. The one-night-only fundraiser invites more than 4,500 diners into restaurants across the city to enjoy a meal, visit with celebrity hosts and win prizes. Twenty-five per cent of all food and alcohol proceeds go to local HIV/AIDS organizations. This year, the popular event is celebrating its 15th anniversary with a number of new restaurants on the roster, including three in Manotick. “It’s the first time we’ve been confirmed in the village,” said organizer Jill Woodley, a staff at HIV/AIDS support facility Bruce House, which splits the evening’s proceeds with Snowy Owl AIDS Foundation. “It’s nice to step out a little farther, and we’ve never been south.” Black Dog Bistro, Main Street Cellar and Burgers on Main in Manotick are all confirmed for the April 24 event, which this year boasts more than 50 restaurants across the city. Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt will be the Main Street Cellar’s celebrity host, and Woodley and several Bruce House volunteers will host at Black Dog Bistro. A host for


Bruce House community engagement officer Jill Woodley and Osgoode chef Steph “The Grilling Gourmet” Legari at last year’s launch of A Taste For Life to support local HIV/AIDS programs. Burgers on Main hasn’t been chosen yet. Kim Murns, owner of Main Street Cellar, said participating in the event is a great match for a fine dining restaurant like hers. “We’re always looking for different charities that we can help with,” she said. “It’s a really good combination for us to get the word out for Manotick residents especially.” She said having restaurants participate inside the village is a huge ben-

efit for local residents, who in other years would have had to travel into the city to take part. “I’m hoping it will make it easier for people to be part of the event when they know they don’t have to go as far,” Burns said. “(Hopefully) they would put parking or taxi fares they save into the donation itself.” The HIV/AIDS fundraiser started in Ottawa 15 years ago, and has spread across the country to include cities from Newfoundland to Alberta.

Helping to improve access to education in Latin America, the Caribbean and Canada

Diners reserve at their favourite participating restaurant and enjoy a delicious meal. Each restaurant then donates 25 per cent of all proceeds from the evening, including drinks, to Bruce House and Snowy Owl. Woodley said this year’s goal is to raise $100,000, about $10,000 more than last year. “It’s our key fundraiser, that and the AIDS Walk For Life,” she said. “It’s core funding for our programs which every non-profit needs, plus it really promotes us in the community so people can see exactly what we’re doing.” Bruce House began 25 years ago as a transition house offering 24-hour care and palliative care services for people living with HIV/AIDS. Today, the organization also runs an apartment program that helps clients find affordable housing while improving their quality of life. “When you’re living with compromised health not having a home is not going to help,” Woodley said. She said any health issue can impact a person’s ability to work and support themselves, and Bruce House clients are often dealing with added issues like addiction, homelessness and mental health issues. Snowy Owl AIDS Foundation raises money to provide a financial resource for organizations dedicated

to HIV/AIDS education, prevention and support. The organization was founded in 1995 in memory of Louis Turpin, who died of AIDS in 1993. It now is a partner organization in the AIDS Walk for Life, runs a camp for families dealing with HIV/AIDS and has been participating in the Taste For Life event since 1999. Executive director Lise Turpin, sister of Louis, said she hopes the event increases awareness about the impact of HIV and how devastating it can be. “I want youth to realize there is no cure yet,” Turpin said. “There is still a struggle for living with the disease. The pill is a toxic chemical, it’s a form of chemotherapy of sorts.” Osgoode chef Steph Legari has joined the event as this year’s “spokeschef.” He said one tour through Bruce House was enough to convince him he should support the event. “I was expecting doom and gloom, but I was greeted with a gorgeous house with lots of life, lots of energy and people who want to die with dignity or get better and move on,” Legari said. “It’s a house of life, not death.” He said that’s exactly the kind of optimism and celebration that food and dining represents.

Awesome Ottawa is autonomous, with funding provided by 10 trustees who donate $100 each. The awards are provided with no strings attached. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With $1,000 from Awesome Ottawa, we will expand our adopt-agarbage-can program enabling more residents to place and maintain a garbage can in areas where litter is a

problem,â&#x20AC;? said BeautiďŹ cation member Lucie Marleau. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We could explore implementing a painting contest for our area benches and public garbage cans thereby brightening up the drabcoloured ďŹ xtures.â&#x20AC;? Marleau and BeautiďŹ cation cochairwoman Marguerite Beaulieu will submit a proposal to Awesome Ottawa

in the coming weeks, which will focus primarily on what projects the group could implement if they had the funding. Marleau said the application will highlight ways to make Vanier BeautiďŹ cation more successful, including funding for enhancements to parks and public spaces, such as the addition of plants and ďŹ&#x201A;owers.


EMC news - Members of one Vanier community group are getting ready to prove just how awesome they can be to help keep their neighbourhood a clean, attractive place to live. Vanier BeautiďŹ cation committee is

planning on applying for an Awesome Ottawa grant to help fund some of the ongoing projects the group undertakes each year in the neighbourhood. Awesome Ottawa is the Ottawa chapter of the Awesome Foundation, a network of people who help fund $1,000 projects which can be described as â&#x20AC;&#x153;awesome.â&#x20AC;?

Casinos do more harm than good: health centres Brier Dodge

EMC news - Community health groups and resource centres say the way to stop the side effects of gambling is to eliminate the problem in the first place. Nine different centres from Ottawa held a press conference on March 25 to talk about their opposition to Ottawa’s potential future casino. Jeff Morrison, board president at the Centretown Community Health Centre, said Ottawa has failed to engage in a dialogue about the issues that come with gambling, unlike Toronto, where discussions have talked about risks. “We’re distracted by things like location,” he said. “Location is not a factor. We see these questions as a distraction from what the debate should be.” Morrison said that the nine centres who oppose the proposal all see the negative impacts of gambling on a daily basis. Problem gambling disproportionately affects certain groups that may already be disadvantaged, including low income individuals, older adults, newcomers to Canada and Aboriginal peoples, a press release issued by the group of centres said.

Each centre’s board passed their own individual motion opposing the casino. While the city is looking at the casino as a potential money maker, Morrision said that the revenue will partially be revenue taken away from other Ottawa entertainment businesses. “Let’s be clear, casino revenues do not come out of thin air,” he said, adding that 30 to 40 per cent of casino revenues come from the 3 per cent of the population with gambling problems. While the group said they are firm in their no casino opinion, if a casino does come in, members strongly urge the city to look at measures to protect citizens. Morrison said that similar standards have been put in place on items like alcohol, which can’t be sold after a certain hour. Measures could include removing ATMs on site, and forcing a closing time on the casino. The lack of public consultation on the casino has been troubling, he said. The group of centres is prepared to move forward in facilitating more discussion about the risks of the city putting a casino in. Some options for gambling in the city are available at the Rideau Carleton Raceway.

Morrision said the group isn’t opposed to the current operations remaining, as long as no additional capacity is added. The groups hope that Ottawa Public Health will take a position against the casino, as Toronto Public Health has done. Toronto’s medical officer of health said that introducing a new casino in Toronto would have greater adverse health related impacts than benefits. “If you can reduce access to gambling in the first place, then the problem isn’t there to be solved,” Morrison said. GROUPS OPPOSING THE CASINO PROPOSAL ARE:

• Centretown Community Health Centre • Eastern Ottawa Community Resource Centre • Lowertown Community Resource Centre • Orléans-Cumberland Community Resource Centre • Pinecrest Queensway Community Health Centre • Rideau-Rockcliffe Community Resource Centre • Sandy Hill Community Health Centre • Somerset West Community Health Centre • South-East Ottawa Community Health Centre.

Students collect pennies for police teddy bears

EMC news - Grade 4 students at Maple Ridge Elementary School found a way to put pennies to good use by running a penny drive for Kindness Week. Students in Jessica Meating’s class collected pennies from students, teachers and their families throughout their drive to donate to the police’s Teddy Bear Fund program. The Teddy Bear Fund provides officers with bears to give to children in distress. “They were very excited to be helping out other students their own age,” said Maple Ridge vice-principal Todd Saunders. The students also hosted a pancake breakfast on Valentine’s Day, collecting even more pennies for their cause. In total, they were able to raise $365 to donate to the fund. When Meating took the first batch of rolled pennies to the bank, they told her they now have bags that can be filled up with pennies – much less time consuming than rolling the

300 rolls of pennies the students had already completed, Saunders said. “They rolled quite a few of them.” Nicole Cadieux, program coordinator of the Teddy Bear Fund, visited the class with three other officers to explain the program to the students and accept the donation. “Because it helps kids in their own age group, they can really relate to that program,” Cadieux said. She was able to explain to the students why a child might be given a teddy bear by a police officer. “I keep receiving comments back from officers,” Cadieux said. “Members of the Ottawa police with just wonderful stories.” She said that the three young children recently found on their own in Vanier after their parents left them alone overnight were given teddy bears from the program by responding officers. Children could also be given bears in other situations causing distress, such as traffic accidents, or fires. All the money donated by

He was a stray that we were cat-sitting for a friend that found him to test if I was allergic to cats.

Copper is an 11 year-old, neutered male, blonde and cream Retriever Labrador and Border Collie mix who was surrendered to the shelter by his owner on February 13, and is now available for adoption. This sweet-as-can-be senior fella is looking for a place to call his own. He’s looking for a human that understands he needs some special attention in his old age, and in return promises to offer endless love. Copper wants you to keep in mind that he still has a lot of energy and is looking for someone to accompany him on nice long walks. Although he is very friendly, Copper is a little overwhelmed by children and would rather not live with them. COPPER Ruffles is a 1 year-old, unaltered female, tricolour Abyssinian swirl guinea pig who was ID#A153275 brought to the shelter on March 12 and is now available for adoption. Ruffles will need an owner who is willing to put in the extra time needed to help socialize her in order to reach her full potential as a new family member. She is currently busily exploring new toys in her cage with her friend Cadbury (A153885) and would love if you could offer her time to play outside of her cage daily. Ruffles is a true guinea pig and will need toys that will help keep her teeth trim and fit. Guinea pigs are heavy chewers who are very curious in nature and need lots of safe items to keep them busy, and entertained!
