Inside Billings COMMUNITY plaque on the way Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

COMMUNITY

EMC news - It wasn’t installed in time for an important anniversary, but a historic plaque honouring the area’s first European settler is set to be installed next month. Glenn Clark, president of the Gloucester Historical Society, has been leading the charge to honour Braddish Billings, who lends his name to a bridge, shopping centre and of course, the national historic site at his former estate. Clark has a strong connection to Billings because both sides of his family settled in the area and he was raised there, but Clark said other local residents might not know as much about Braddish Billings’ story.

The plaque, which will be located in Linda Thom Park, north of the Rideau River on the west side of Bank Street, will help inform people about the important history of the area’s first settler, Clark said. “I think people need to learn a little more about the background of the name that’s so familiar,” he said. Billings was not only the first person to settle in the area, he also laid the groundwork for the area’s development. See PLAQUE, page 4

EMC news – Ottawa police have arrested four young men in relation to a swarming that occurred on the evening of May 19 near Lorry Greenberg Drive. During that incident, three youths playing basketball at a school located on that street were approached by a group of four males. Two of the youth were robbed of items they had on them and the suspects left the area, only to be located by police and arrested in the same area. “They popped out of a foot path and an officer spotted them,” said Sgt. Mike Harbosch of the Ottawa Police Service’s robbery unit. No injuries stemmed from the robberies, say police. Charged in relation to the incident are Mussa Aden, 18, Mohamed Mohamed, 19, Guede Ahmed-Hassan, 21, and Mohamed Duale, 19, all from Ottawa. Each has been charged with robbery and forcible confinement. Duale was also charged with an additional charge of robbery in rela-

tion to the second victim, while Aden received an additional charge of breach of an undertaking. Mohamed, Ahmed-Hassan and Duale were released on promises to appear in court next month, while Aden was held for court and appears on May 20, 2013. Swarmings differ from personal robberies in that they involve two or more perpetrators. Harbosch said that swarmings are down in Ottawa six percent year-todate, meaning a difference of six incidents, while personal robberies are down 19 percent year-to-date, a difference of 12 incidents. Overall, the rate of swarmings and personal robberies on Ottawa’s streets has more or less stayed static for the past few years. Incidents like this are more common in the warmer months, said Harbosch, for the simple reason that more people are out and about, while wearing less clothing – making desirable items more visible. In 2011, Ottawa saw 291 swarming incidents and 185 personal robberies, while 2012 saw 293 swarmings and 170 personal robberies.

New public works facility throws open doors

Diane Deans

Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - The city’s new public works yard in south Ottawa opened its doors to the public on Saturday, May 25. Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans arranged for the open house to give residents a chance to see the ďŹ nished product from the inside. “They watched it being built for a long time,â€? said Deans, who was joined by Mayor Jim Watson for a cake cutting to commemorate the event. “I thought it would be a great opportunity for the community to sneak a peek.â€? The brand new facility opened in September 2012 and is the “heart of operations for the city,â€? said Deans. “It’s the centre for winter snow operations and it’s the centre for summer parks ... There’s a lot of work that goes in and out of here.â€? The new public works yard features a 10-bay garage, an administration building and a salt and sand storage structure. Around 100 people attended the open house to check out the new digs. Three-year-old Perpetua Brown, from Greenboro, had the opportunity to sit in a number of large vehicles and play with the buttons and gears. “It’s a fun family morning,â€? said Deans. “I think they’ve really enjoyed the opportunity to play with the equipment.â€? The new facility is located at 3100 Conroy Rd.

Emerald Ash Borer information session Ottawa residents are invited to attend a public information session on the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) on June 4th from 4:30 to 9:00 p.m. in the Ellwood Hall at the Jim Durrell Recreation Complex, located at 1265 Walkley Road. Since 2008, this invasive insect has spread across Ottawa and the presence of EAB poses a serious threat to Ash trees located on both public and private properties. This session will advise residents about the impacts on their community, what the City is doing to address this situation and what residents can do to help mitigate the impact that this pest is having on our Ash trees. City Staff will start the session with a formal presentation at 7:00 p.m. which will be followed by a question and answer period. For more information, please visit ottawa.ca or call 3-1-1. Resurfacing of Tapiola Crescent As part of the 2013 Budget, City Council approved a number of road resurfacing projects in our city. Among the projects approved is the resurfacing of Tapiola Crescent.

Plaque chosen over monument Continued from page 1

He was involved with constructing the bridge, bringing a rail line to the area and building a number of institutions, including Bytownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first jail and courthouse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;His lands were the townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s administrative centre for over 100 years,â&#x20AC;? the plaque reads. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Billings shaped the community by building a school, churches and the township hall ...â&#x20AC;? Billingsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; descendents went on to become influential politicians, philanthropists, scientists and writers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think a lot of that has been forgotten,â&#x20AC;? Clark said. He had originally hoped to erect a monument to Billings, until he realized it would cost tens of thousands of dollars. Clark had hoped that would be possible last fall to mark the 200th anniversary of Billingsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; settlement in the area, which became the former township of Gloucester. But the project was delayed after the city needed more time to review the plaqueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s text and edit it into a shorter version,

Clark said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had given them the design and they did a translation and I thought they were OK with it,â&#x20AC;? Clark said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But they said it needed to meet city design standards â&#x20AC;Ś it delayed the project a bit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In this case, it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so much what the plaque said, it was that it said too much,â&#x20AC;? said Dan Chenier, the general manager of parks, recreation and cultural services. Clark expects the final bill for the plaque, produced at Alloy Foundry Co. Limited in Merrickville, will be around $4,000 or $5,000. The Association of Friends of the Billings Estate Museum, the Gloucester Lions and the Billings Bridge Shopping Centre are each contributing $500. The bulk of the funds will come from the Gloucester Historical Society.

A newly completed plaque honouring Braddish Billings is ready to install in an Old Ottawa South park next month. LAURA MUELLER/ METROLAND

All construction is currently on schedule. Another project in the ward also includes the addition of noise barriers along Hunt Club, a contract awarded to Goldie Mohr Ltd., and work has already begun. Although there may be some disruption to residents during the course of construction, the installation of noise barriers is slated for completion by the end of 2013 and any remaining landscaping reďŹ nements will be completed during the spring of 2014. The work will include tree trimming and tree removal, but only where absolutely necessary; excavation, and construction of foundations and posts for the noise barrier, erection of the noise barrier panels, and landscaping. Another item on the councillorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report was the site plan for a future Ultramar gas station on Hawthorne Road, located at the intersection of Hunt Club and Hawthorne.

Concerns from the previous association meeting were taken into consideration regarding the proposal. A few changes have since been made to the access and easement to the site from Hawthorne Road. â&#x20AC;&#x153;City staff have now agreed that they will require a merge lane to get in,â&#x20AC;? said Deans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coming out of Hawthorne Road, city staff are going to require the applicant to put in a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;right-in, right-outâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; only. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to allow the trucks coming out to make a left-hand turn onto Hawthorne.â&#x20AC;? In answering an inquiry from a resident, Deans conďŹ rmed they still do not have site plan approval until all needs are met. After the councillorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report, AGM matters were then dealt with. Treasurer Karen Michaud told those in attendance that while the cost of a spring newsletter put them back by about $400, it was a cost-neutral project overall. Approximately 3,000 homes received the newsletter.

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Hunt Club Park Community Association has been reactivated. With a full slate of directors, outgoing president Brad Pye said he was pleased to see such a good response from the community at the associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual general meeting on May 22. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really fantastic to see all of you out,â&#x20AC;? he said at the beginning of the meeting. He explained at the meeting how a group of citizens were dedicated to rebuilding the association in October of last year after the organization remained dormant for a number of years. He mentioned how past-president Eric Dormer and past-treasurer Nancy Ferguson were both active in re-establishing the organization. A total of 14 directors were elected, and the newly-elected president is Karin Pullin. Anyone who lives in the Hunt Club Park area is automatically a member of the association, said Pye, and there is no membership fee. Present at the meeting were former members of the executive who have now expressed an interest in helping to re-energize the community association. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They wanted to reignite the community association and bring it back to the community, and look for ways we can get active and shape the community,â&#x20AC;? said Pye. Also attending the meeting was Coun. Diane Deans, who updated association members and residents on a number of different community items affecting the area. One of the items of interest to residents was regarding the Hunt Club Road extension. Coun. Deans informed the association how the projectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s construction was inching towards completion. With the construction of a four-lane road between Hawthorne and Russell Road complete, the second phase of the project is now in progress, which links the road to a new Highway 417 interchange. The anticipated completion date is set for 2014 as work continues with the con-

The PDL team is a level below the team that the Fury will unveil in 2014, a team many of the current players are sure to be aiming for. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We started targeting players at the end of last season,â&#x20AC;? said menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head coach Stephen Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Kane. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone we wanted, we got.â&#x20AC;? The men play in a 23-and-under league, meaning the turnover every year is high, with rebuilding almost every year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Fury have only seven returning menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s players. Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Kane said that many of the players on this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team could play at the caliber expected to be signed to Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future professional team. There are several local players included on the roster. OrlĂŠans is represented by former Louis Riel high school players Chad Bush and Will BeaugĂŠ, Dunrobinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Robbie Murphy, an All Saints High School grad, and Barrett Neilson, from Barrhaven. The team also signed a number of international players, from Germany, England, New Zealand, France,

From left, Emma Donnelly of Kanata, Jasmine Phillips of Nepean, Kayla Adamek of Nepean and OrlĂŠansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Lauren Hughes were all officially announced as a part of the Ottawa Fury womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s W-league team for 2013. The women range in ages, with Adamek still a Sir Robert Borden high school student, and Phillips a 26-year-old veteran goaltender. United States, Sweden and Bosnia. Many of the players already boast resumes from elite club teams and colleges, with a good number having held captain honours at some point.

It will be a challenge to balance so many players who are used to getting a lot of playing time, so players will have to battle to earn starting spots on this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s squad, said Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Kane.

Thank you!

He said last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loss was heartbreaking â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and that he, along with most of his players, would kick his grandma if it meant winning the title this year.

The womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team is in a different boat, coming into the season as defending league champions. Local womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s players include Nepeanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jasmine Phillips and Kayla Adamek, Kanataâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Emma Donnelly, OrlĂŠansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Lauren Hughes, Nepean High School graduate Breanna Burton and Barrhavenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gillian Baggot. Both Donnelly and Adamek have played through the Furyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s youth development program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The years of being the bridesmaids are over,â&#x20AC;? said John Pugh, Fury owner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For 2013, all we can do is look to repeat.â&#x20AC;? Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head coach Dom Oliveri said that they try to not recruit not only talented players, but good people who can lead by example. The women also have several international players joining the roster, including players from Australia, New Zealand and England. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Coaches) have worked tirelessly to bring this team to Ottawa,â&#x20AC;? Pugh said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I pay their phone bills.â&#x20AC;? The women were scheduled to play their first game on May 24 against Quebec City, while the men had a game scheduled at home on March 24 against Boston at Algonquin College. The next home game will be May 31 for the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team, against CFC Azul at the Algonquin College Soccer Complex at 7 p.m.

South Ottawa resident wins Conservative nomination bid Economy, health care dominant issues for Matt Young He points out some of the PC party’s plans to do this, including controlling hydro rates, establishing a government that spends within its means, lowering taxes, and fixing labour laws to compete for jobs. Young said he is most concerned for the future of the community and for families’ futures. “We have a choice to make between continuing down the same path that has us struggling to keep up as a ‘have-not’ province, or to take a new path that will restore our once strong, confident and prosperous Ontario,” said Young.

EMC News - Matt Young says he understands the challenges facing everyday individuals and families. In short, he can relate. This could be perhaps one of the reasons the family man, business manager and south Ottawa resident was nominated as the Ontario PC candidate for Ottawa South on May 13. “It’s quite exciting to see that my name is going to be on a ballot,” he remarked. “I’m just a regular guy. I’ve got two kids, a job I go to every day, and I’m salary-employed just like most people. I can relate to working families.” With his past experience working on political campaigns, his private sector knowledge, and his understanding of job creation and the economy, Young was recognized for his commitment to reducing the size and cost of government in a statement by party leader Tim Hudak. Young said he was driven to add his name to the list because the way he sees it, western civilization has reached a pinnacle, and if no improvements are made, then the econ-

calling for strong action to grow the economy and rein in government spending.

Ottawa South has been a strong Liberal riding for the past 26 years, but Young said he is determined to change it to a Conservative blue if given the opportunity. In preparation for a future election, Young said he is eager to meet with constituents to hear about what matters to them most. So far, health care and job security are at the top of the list. “With four hospitals in this riding, a lot of people work in the health care sector,” he said, adding many also have the privilege of working in

their own community. “Other than the hospitals, there is no other large industry. It’s mainly all small to medium-sized businesses.” Additionally, he said finding jobs for youth and those who have immigrated is paramount. “It’s hard for them to find employment,” he said. “You have 17-year-olds and 18year-olds competing for jobs. There aren’t enough to go around.” Lowering the taxes on businesses is also part of Young’s platform. “Some of them are barely making ends meet because of the taxes they have to pay,” he said. “Hydro rates are climbing at never-before-seen rates … We need to come up with a better plan.” He applauded the PC party’s discussion papers on reining in government spending and encouraging job growth, saying they are a good tool to use as an approach to governance. “It’s not about creating dogmatic policies,” he said. “It’s about getting back to what it was before.” For now, he will continue to get his name out there in anticipation of an election. “If people want change, there’s only one party that can affect change,” he said.

We have all won

T

he city recently wrapped up another successful Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend, an event that attracts more than 40,000 participants, not to mention the hordes of onlookers who filled the streets of downtown on May 24 and 25. The statistics alone are staggering. Ottawa Race Weekend is the biggest multi-distance race event in Canada and is one of only two International Association of Athletics Federations sanctioned events in the country. Over the course of a weekend, approximately $28.7 million is pumped into the Ottawa-Gatineau economy – not exactly chump change. Hotels book around 9,000 homes in the capital region. Race organizers are responsible for collecting 427,000 discarded drinking cups and handing out roughly 25,000 sponges to sweaty participants. It takes a volunteer work force of 2,000 people to help organize and run the races, including those who distribute water, run the information booth, and provide emergency services. Doctors, nurses, paramedics and other medical professionals volunteer their time, bringing enough equipment to set up a small hospital to service the event. When you think about it, over the course of the

weekend Ottawa absorbs the population of several small cities – and those people require additional city services, such as police, fire services and doctors. Ottawa Race Weekend is a hallmark event that all the citizens can take pride in, a series of races with international repute, drawing some of the best athletes across the world. How fitting that the event was kicked off with a marathon torch relay run from the village of Marathon in West Carleton to city hall – a 42-kilometre trek that matches the length of a marathon run. The torch run was suggested by Greece’s ambassador to Canada, and the mayor of Marathon, Greece, travelled to Ottawa with two ceremonial torches for the relay run, giving the race weekend a little international polish. We can also take pride in the tremendous volunteer effort generated by the event. Every year, runners participating in race weekend have raised more than $1 million, money that supports 25 charities affiliated with Ottawa Race Weekend. Ottawa Race Weekend celebrates what is best in our city and its citizens. Pheidippides, a Greek soldier who inspired the concept of a marathon after he ran 40 kilometres in 490 BC to report the victory of Athens over Persia before falling over dead, said it best: “We have won.”

Experts all thumbs when it comes to the keyboard

S

omeone is always trying to invent a better mousetrap, they used to say. They don’t say it so much any more, now that I think of it. This could mean that the better mousetrap has already been invented, although I doubt it, to judge by the mice. The better mousetrap, if it is to be invented in this day and age, will probably involve lasers and the use of social media, because every new invention does. Perhaps a mouse could be lured to his doom by invitations on MouseBook, there to be confronted by a laser launched by a drone triggered by someone’s cellphone. Something you probably hadn’t thought about: the invitation on MouseBook would be sent by someone typing on his or her thumbs. Which brings us, not very neatly, to today’s topic. Every few years someone tries to reinvent the typewriter keyboard, which is what computer keyboards still have. The time has come again. This time it’s researchers at a university in Scotland who say, according to news article, that the traditional keyboard has a “suboptimal text entry interface.” This is mad scientist-speak for “you can’t type very well on it.” Except, of course, that you can. Millions, maybe billions, of people

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town over the years have used the traditional keyboard and found it quite optimal enough, once they figured it out. They way they figured it out was by practicing it, after learning which fingers go on which keys. There were typing classes in school. The keyboard we all use is known as the QWERTY system, after the arrangement of the top six letter keys for the left hand. QWERTY developed after it was discovered that the seemingly logical system of placing the keys in alphabetical order did not work well. If people typed too quickly the keys jammed up. Placing the most-used letters apart worked better. For years, mad scientists have been trying to improve on it, arguing, not without logic, that QWERTY is inefficient. But, of course, Published weekly by:

QWERTY is more efficient than other systems because people have learned how to use it. Watch a fast QWERTY typist work and try to imagine anything going faster. Some systems are inefficient but impossible to replace. How inefficient is, say, the French language, with all those genders? How inefficient is the English language, with all of those words that sound the same and are spelled differently? And how likely are we, the English- and French-speakers, to sacrifice our languages to efficiency? Mad scientists who study baseball say that the way baseball players throw in an overhand motion is unnatural. The natural way is to throw a kind of combination of underhand and sidearm. You can see how much effect this has had on baseball players. Sometimes we do things just because that’s the way we do things. And it works for us. As it turns out, this latest attempt to eradicate QWERTY coincides roughly with the 20th anniversary of text messaging. The latest knock against QWERTY is that it doesn’t work well for people who type with their thumbs. The latest solution is to put the vowels on one side of the keyboard and the consonants on the other. Now, since there are 21 consonants and only five vowels, that would make it necessary

to change some consonants into vowels for balance’s sake. In effect, the inventors of the new system, called KALQ, have done that, moving some consonants over to where the vowels are (and leaving the Y with the consonants, for some reason). The over-all effect, seen in views of the new keyboard, seems just as random as QWERTY but we are assured it is more efficient. The philosophical question so far remains unasked: Is it in the best interests of humanity to make it easier for people to type with their thumbs? Next thing you know, everyone will be throwing sidearm.

Summer signals end of Groundhog Day

H

ave you ever seen the movie Groundhog Day, where the lead character, a weatherman played by Bill Murray, experiences the same day over and over again? Well, as we get close to the end of the school year, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m starting to feel like Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m living it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; every morning at least. And this is not a good thing. Mornings at our house are, to use Toronto Mayor Rob Fordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favourite word, â&#x20AC;&#x153;ridiculous.â&#x20AC;? Each day, relying on our infant as an alarm clock, my husband and I rise around 6 a.m. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to get the kettle on fast enough for the pot of coffee. My eldest son scampers up the stairs cheerful as a cardinal in a treetop and talking at lightning speed about everything under the sun. My younger son pulls the covers over his head. Once the caffeine hits the pleasure sensor in our brains, we are propelled into action â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a rapid, interwoven dance around the kitchen â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one person making breakfast, the other buried in the depths of the Tupperware cupboard.

Generally about 10 minutes after 7 a.m. with just 12 minutes until we have to leave for the bus, the younger walks about as slow as he can go up the stairs, rubbing the sleep from his eyes, still in his pyjamas! â&#x20AC;&#x153;Are you kidding me?â&#x20AC;? I send him down to get dressed, which triggers a champion temper tantrum. Miracles at work in our house, we just manage to get everybody fed, watered, dressed and somewhat clean, lace-up shoes on feet, sunscreen on faces by 7:21 a.m. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of yelling in the short two minutes preceding our departure. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on our way out the door with two minutes to spare, when boy-the-younger decides he has to go to the bathroom. I throw up my hands. There are some things you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t control. Son-the-younger emerges after washing his hands for what I swear is 90 seconds. We run the two blocks to the bus stop, with me yelling, â&#x20AC;&#x153;No talking, no talking.â&#x20AC;? And watch it go by without us. The next morning we hit the repeat button.

Maniacs hope to invite teams to Canada “I decided to one day bring back my kids and a hockey team to play against teams in Sydney, Canberra and Brisbane.” Now that dream has become reality, with 13 boys aged eight to 13 recruited for the Ottawa Maple Maniacs team, which leaves July 2014 for a three-week tour. The boys all hail from the Leitrim Minor Hockey League or the Gloucester Rangers, Paron said. The goal is to make connections and invite the host teams back to Canada the following year for the Bell Capital Cup. “We’re hoping they can come here and be our guest,” he said. From what Paron could see, most hockey teams in Australia have some sort of Canadian connection, usually through an ex-pat or diplomat putting their kids on the local team or offering to coach. That Canadian influence keeps the romanticism of traditional pond

hockey alive, even in such a hot country, Paron said. “They want to play on an outdoor rink, so we want to give them that opportunity (in 2015),” Paron said. Of course, the Ottawa Maple Maniacs want to experience what Australia has to offer as well. “It’s more of a cultural experience. The hockey is a big bonus but it’s an opportunity for these kids to represent their community and their country.” The Maniacs will host a fundraising golf tournament at Manderley on the Green golf course on Aug. 17, which will subsidize the players’ trip expenses and support South Ottawa Race Day.

Explore nature’s bounty at SunTech Greenhouses Doors Open Ottawa unlocks the city’s most interesting places Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

Mitchell’s bees are relied on to pollinate the tomatoes. The number of bees loose in the greenhouse directly correlates to the number of open flowers, Mitchell said. There are usually two or three bee stings a year, he said, but as the chief bee handler he has managed to escape a sting for nearly 14 years. Of course, the whole point of a greenhouse is to get around Mother Nature’s whims, and SunTech employs a complex computer system to monitor the indoor and outdoor temperatures and adjust the roof vents accordingly. The average daily temperature inside is about 19 degrees, Mitchell said, and they can harvest about 10 months of the year. EMMA JACKSON/METROLAND

Bob Mitchell, owner and founder of SunTech Greenhouses south of Manotick, will open his doors for tours on June 1 and 2. “Nobody knows where their food is coming from,” he said. “On the tours, the people always say ‘I never dreamt there was that much work to it.’” NATURE’S WAY

While SunTech certainly doesn’t profess to be organic or pesticide free, it makes use of what nature has to offer. A common greenhouse pest is the white fly, a tiny, snow white bug that can multiply into the billions. As they drink the juices from the plants, they excrete everywhere - and that

can prevent the plants from getting the sunlight they need. But instead of spraying plants with chemicals, Mitchell brings in 40,000 encarsia formosa, a tiny parasitic wasp that lays its eggs in white fly eggs - essentially stopping the reproduction cycle. “You don’t pay them by the hour and they don’t miss,” Mitchell said. “It’s easy enough to miss the top of leaves, so try getting the bottom of the leaves (where white flies lay their eggs).” Bumblebees are another important part of the greenhouse ecosystem. Brought up from Windsor,

DOORS OPEN

Along with SunTech, several south Ottawa sites will be open for discovery on June 1 and 2. In the Leitrim area the Gloucester Historical Society, Gloucester artifact centre and St. James Anglican Church at Bank and Leitrim are all within a stone’s throw from each other, making it an easy stop to hit three popular Doors Open sites at once. Further south on Bank Street the Hindu Temple of Ottawa will also welcome members of the public for tours and questions. More than 120 buildings of historical, cultural or architectural significance are taking part in this year’s event. For a full list of open buildings visit www.ottawa.ca/doorsopen.

EMC news - Walking into the first of Bob Mitchell’s several sprawling greenhouses, the sweet, earthy smell of ripening tomatoes takes over your senses. For a brief moment, it’s just you and the fruit. You’re filled with a sense of hominess, of nostalgia for your grandmother, or the proud memory of the first vegetable you ever nurtured to life. When you come back to reality, you start to look around, and you can hardly believe your eyes. Rows upon rows of leafy tomato plants climb toward the soft, filtered light coming in from above. The greenhouse seems to stretch on forever. Little technology gets in the way of nature’s beauty; the stems grow from plastic-sheathed blocks of crushed coconut in raised troughs, and are clipped with strings to small rods above. Small pipes wind along the floor, masked by green tangles of sagging vines. Every so often a bumblebee lazes by, off to pollinate another plant

or return to one of the hives placed sporadically throughout the greenhouse. Mitchell, the owner and founder of SunTech Greenhouses on Doyle Road south of Manotick, somehow fits into the greenhouse ecosystem, despite a brusque manner and a penchant for loud exclamations. The life-long farmer, soon to turn 59, moved to a dairy and cash crop farm south of Kenmore when he was six, which he farmed with his family until 1998. And then he entered a greenhouse for the first time in his life. “The smell, that was what hooked me,” he said. From that visit in September 1998, it took 11 months for Mitchell to buy the 90-acre Doyle Road property, set up a 2.3 acre greenhouse and plant 22,000 beefsteak tomato plants. “Just a starter kit,” Mitchell laughed. Today, the farm has four acres of greenhouse facilities and produces 11 different commercial products. That includes several tomato varieties as well as eggplants, cucumbers, peppers and green beans. On June 1 and 2, SunTech will open its doors to the public for free tours between 10 and 4 p.m. each day, with tastings and a chance to see a modern greenhouse at work. The farm has participated in the city’s Doors Open Ottawa weekend for the past decade. Mitchell said it’s important to educate the public - particularly urban folk - about the agrifood industry.

New funding helps people with disabilities find work Staff

EMC news - Secured funding for one nonprofit organization will help increase its goal of finding jobs for more people with disabilities in Ottawa. The Employment Accessibility Resource Network announced it will receive a $142,000 grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation on May 21. Partnered with the United Way Ottawa, EARN will use the funding to reach out to more employers and provide additional networking opportunities. Brian Carriere, chairman of EARNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s steering committee and relationship manager, said the organization has helped debunk myths surrounding the costs of accommodating people with disabilities, which in turn has helped place more people in meaningful jobs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many employers are not aware of the resources available to help them to hire, accommodate and retain employees with disabilities,â&#x20AC;?

Carriere said. Since EARNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mandate of connecting the two, more than 85 people with disabilities have found jobs in Ottawa. This funding will help that number grow. The announcement was made at EARNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s partner, the University of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Telfer School of Management. Carriere was joined by fellow board members, politicians and United Way board members to speak about what the impact of this amount of funding will have on the small organization. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pleased to see that these funds will support such important work here in Ottawa,â&#x20AC;? said Madeleine Meilleur, MPP for Ottawa-Vanier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would like to thank United Way and the partners of EARN for working so hard to make a difference in the lives of people in our community. It is truly important work that is making our city a better place for everyone.â&#x20AC;? A United Way-led initiative, EARN launched in 2011 to help bring employers and service providers together to increase the op-

portunity to find employment for people with disabilities. The organization would do this by increasing coordination with service providers, engaging employers and using a system which matches people with employers depending on talent. According to numbers released by the United Way, only 43 per cent of people with disabilities in Ottawa participate in the labour market â&#x20AC;&#x201C; compared with 70 per cent of the general population. United Way adds that one in six people with disabilities live below the poverty line, and that

by connecting these individuals with EARN, the potential to escape poverty is possible. The funding will be distributed over the course of three years. Aside from the United Way and the University of Ottawa, EARN has over 30 partners who work with them, including Algonquin College, Canadian Mental Health Association, Canadian Security Intelligence Service, and the city.

Vanier celebrates safe cycling Festival brings together loads of activities, barbecue Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Two-wheelers are set to have some fun as Vanier organizes its first safe cycling festival this weekend. The Vanier Community Association has organized Vélo Fest in collaboration with Capital Vélo Fest on June 2. The festival will host a number of activities that include bicycle safety sessions, skill challenges and a bicycle tune-up workshop. Sarah Partridge, event organizer and association board member, said cycling is becoming very popular in Vanier and the association wanted to find a way to celebrate that. “It is an easy way to get around to the different parks and businesses in the area - or to visit friends,” Partridge said. “We wanted to celebrate cycling by coming together for cycling activities and a barbecue. We also want to make sure everyone is safe, so we will have games for kids to teach them cycling skills, skill challenges for adults and kids as well as a bike tune-up workshop, and free reflectors for bikes to make sure cyclists are seen on the road.” The event is taking place at two locations: Centre Francophone de

Vanier and the Vanier Community Service Centre. There will be a bike rodeo for children, cycling tours of Vanier, as well as information booths from local and city-wide cycling groups. There will be free helmets and tshirts to the first 100 children who attend, thanks to the Club Optimiste. There will also be a free barbecue at noon. For those new to cycling or people just getting back on a bike, Partridge said this will be a great event. The event is the result of work from the association’s new committee, Vanier Cycles. Over the past year the committee has been collecting feedback from residents about the routes they take in Vanier as well as on dangerous intersections in order to provide feedback to the city. The group will also participate in the city’s cycling consultation as part of Building a Liveable Ottawa, which is open to all residents in the city and can be found at ottawacycling.metroquest.com. Partridge said the group learned that Capital Vélo Fest was taking place in June, so they decided to join their Community Spokes Program.

Partnering with are the Vanier Community Service Centre, which operates Vélo-Vanier, a free neighbourhood bike-share program, and the Club Optimiste, which runs a bike rodeo each year. The city’s Safer Roads Ottawa program also joined to help organize the event. “The enthusiasm for this festival quickly grew and with so many partners, we are able to run a really great activity,” Partridge said. Volunteers are welcome to help with the fix-your-bike workshop, serve food at the barbecue or take pictures. Registration is available online at capitalvelofest.ca or email vanieravelo@gmail.com. A full list of activities and times is available online at vanier-association.com.

Vanier Cycles, a sub-committee of the Vanier Community Association, will host a cycling festival on June 2. The festival will have activities for families, children and adults alike and will take place at the Vanier Community Service Centre and the Centre Francophone.

Ottawa South News EMC - Thursday, May 30, 2013

EMC news - A changing of the guard at the Old Ottawa South Community Association marks a new chapter for the community. After 11 years as the president of the association, Michael Jenkin is stepping back to let new leadership take charge. One-year board member Linda Hancock, who previously served as vice president, was elected as the new president on May 21. “It’s a coming of age of this place,” Jenkin said. “I really just felt it was time to give other people a chance to be involved.” The community has been able to mark many milestones and achievements under his tenure, not the least of which was a massive renovation of the Old Firehall Community Centre. The “iconic” facility re-opened in 2011, marking the end of years of intense community effort to advocate and fundraise for the project. The community raised $350,000 of the $3.4 million spent on the expansion. “It physically represents the community,” Jenkin said. With that behind him, Jenkin will move into a more limited role on the community association’s board. He will continue to oversee the process of negotiating a partnership agreement with the city to oversee operations of the firehall. Old Ottawa South is hoping that agreement can be finalized this year, once the groundwork is set by a soon-to-be-completed partnership agreement with the Glebe’s recreation association. That makes way for Hancock, who has extensive experience with non-profit organizations. The senior financial consultant with Investors Group has lived in Old Ottawa South since 2004 and resided in the Glebe before that, having grown up in Ottawa. But she was never much of a patron of community services or facilities until last year, when at age 51, she found herself a new mother when her husband’s niece came from the Middle East to live with them. As the girl’s legal guardian, Hancock quickly became familiar with the resources, facilities and programs available in the community, especially for families and children. “Now I see the value,” she said. “I really wasn’t much of a user of the community facilities until then and all of a sudden we have a vested interest.” After working with national non-profit organizations in the past, Hancock said she was interested in engaging in volunteerism that was more tangible in her life. “I wanted to do something at the community level where you can really see the results of the work,” she said. She has previously worked with the Big Sis-

ters of Ottawa-Carleton (now called Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ottawa), the Active Living Alliance for Canadians with a Disability and fitness programs at the YWCA. Hancock was recruited to join the community association as vice president last year due to her leadership experience. She says her focus this year will be the ongoing project to come up with a new strategic plan and future direction for the association. “I know when it’s time to take a step back and plan for the future,” she said. Issues surrounding land-use planning and intensification are a hot-button topic in Old Ottawa South and Hancock said she is interested to learn more about those topics.

One-year drop in fares fixes ‘inequitable’ prices Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - OC Transpo is addressing concerns about inequality by lowering fares on its accessible Para Transpo vehicles for one year. On May 22, council approved the temporary change to the fares that go into effect July 1. While a regular cash fare will become $3.40, Para Transpo users will instead pay $2.70. The summer fare table was designed to support the full launch of the Presto smart card, a new way to pay for rides on OC Transpo. A fare paid using the Presto card “e-purse” cash balance will cost $2.72. To encourage riders to pick up a free card and switch to the new payment method, OC Transpo set cash and ticket fares higher than buying the same trip using Presto. Transit commission chairwoman Coun. Diane Deans said the “unintended consequence” of the new fares is that “We ended up with fares that were higher for Para Transpo cus-

tomers that were higher than everyone else.” “We heard loud and clear that this was an inequitable situation,” she said. Accessibility advocate Kevin Kinsella, who brought the issue to the commission’s attention on April 17, applauded the move. “It really speaks to the flexibility and willingness of the commission and council to deal with concerns as they come up,” he said. Metrolinx, the provincial agency that oversees Presto, gave the city a discount on the system because technical glitches delayed its launch. That discount will help make up for a $150,000 loss in revenue of setting lower Para Transpo fares, Deans said. Presto cards are available now at transit stations, OC Transpo sales centres and online at prestocard.ca and will go into use as of July 1. OC Transpo is working on a standalone electronic fare payment system for Para Transpo that would also be accepted on conventional OC Transpo vehicles.

Ottawa Race Weekend opens with marathon torch relay blair.edwards@metroland.com

EMC news - It was a meeting of two Marathons. Marathon, a tiny village in West Carleton, played host to an event with Olympic overtones on Thursday, May 23. Eleftherios Anghelopoulos, the Greek ambassador to Canada and Iordanis Louizos, mayor of Marathon, Greece, were on hand to light the ceremonial torch during Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend’s first ever marathon torch relay run. Louizos carried a flame in a special lantern, along with two torches brought from Marathon, Greece. More than 60 runners chosen by the race committee were selected to carry the torch 42.2-kilometres -- coincidentally the distance of a marathon -- from Marathon to Ottawa city hall, a route that travelled through West Carleton, Kanata, Nepean and west Ottawa. “I was amazed and I was excited to see that there was a place 42 km away from city hall here called Marathon,” said Louizos. “It’s an excellent area. People are very, very friendly and I can see they love participating in marathon races.” The idea was suggested to the race committee by Anghelopoulos, who said the torch-relay was a success in

The city also held a public open house in January that attracted 179 people, a development forum with 31 industry representatives and a community forum with 110 representatives in February. Those consultations will guide revised recommendations for updates to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Official Plan that will be tabled at planning committee on June 25. A draft report outlining how pedestrian, cycling, transit and road projects are prioritized will be tabled at the transportation committee in July. Consultation on both the transportation master plan priorities and the Official Plan amendments will continue throughout the summer, with council consideration and voting scheduled to take place in October and November. The entire exercise should be wrapped up by mid-December.

EMC news - Do you walk or cycle to get around Ottawa? The city wants to hear from you. Interactive surveys that let people draw their frequent routes are now online and will help guide how the city defines its active-transportation network for the next two decades. Two versions of the survey â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one focused on walking and one on bicycling â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are available at ottawa.ca/liveableottawa until June 7 as part of the Liveable Ottawa Official Plan and master plan updates. The surveys allow respondents to identify areas where sidewalks, pathways or cycling lanes are missing and needed. People can use the interactive maps to draw their frequent bicycle trips and to identify roads or intersections that are dangerous or uncomfortable for pedestrians or cyclists to navigate. The survey tool helps define what â&#x20AC;&#x153;typeâ&#x20AC;? of cyclist you are by asking how comfortable you are on roads, cycling lanes and pathways. The pedestrian and cycling survey is the second phase of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s online engagement strategy for the Liveable Ottawa consultation.

Ottawa South News EMC - Thursday, May 30, 2013

EMC news - Music, markets and merriment will fill the square this weekend as residents gather for Manotickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual Dickinson Days celebration. The Manotick Kiwanis are once again leading the two-day event, which starts Friday, May 31 with a parade and fireworks. The festivities continue all day Saturday in Dickinson Square. The Friday night parade down Main Street begins at 7 p.m. and ends at the Manotick arena, where Junkyard Symphony will entertain for an hour before everyone gathers for a spectacular fireworks show. Kiwanis secretary Rick Coates said the fireworks are worth every penny (donated by the Manotick Mews owners) to put on the show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We certainly get our moneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a good bang for our buck,â&#x20AC;? Coates said. Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s schedule begins bright and early with a pancake breakfast in Dickinson Square from 7 to 11 a.m. The Manotick Farmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Market will open for the season at 8 a.m. with new and old vendors selling local produce, meats and prepared food. A fishing derby begins at the dam at 9 a.m., and the craft market opens to the public at the same time. The annual talent show begins at 10 a.m. with the Ottawa Police Choir, Manotick Brass Ensemble, and a demonstration from the Pique Dance Studio. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The show on stage is mostly local talent,â&#x20AC;? Coates said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At night there are local garage bands playing. Last year one of the bands that played was picked up ... and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now toured across Canada. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a stepping stone.â&#x20AC;? Highland dancers, a pipe band and

a jazz band will also grace the stage in the afternoon. Throughout the day, Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mill and Dickinson House will bring their historical flare to the square. The mill has invited a number of heritage tradespeople to demonstrate everything from blacksmithing to weaving. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a telegraph guy, wood carvers, spinners and weavers all doing heritage demonstrations for the public,â&#x20AC;? said education officer Cam Trueman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s awesome.â&#x20AC;? Milling demonstrations and tours of the mill are also available as part of the Doors Open Ottawa festivities going on that weekend, and Trueman said a heritage photo booth is back by popular demand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People can dress up in heritage costumes and get their photo taken and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll email it to them,â&#x20AC;? he said. Dickinson House will give tours of its main exhibit as well as a temporary wedding dress exhibit throughout the day. At some point during the day, Mayor Jim Watson will help mill manager Isabelle Geoffrion unveil a donor board to thank the community for their help with the millâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roof replacement project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every single contributor to the campaign that we have on file is being recognized on it,â&#x20AC;? Geoffrion said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will be on the main floor of the mill for the next 10 years.â&#x20AC;? Geoffrion said now that the roof is complete the mill is transitioning into â&#x20AC;&#x153;thank-youâ&#x20AC;? mode with several events planned to thank the community for its generosity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The entire community has had such a huge impact on our fundraising,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Councillor wants to re-open casino debate Changes at Queen’s Park and the OLG open the door to reconsider gambling facility, says Coun. Tim Tierney Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Coun. Tim Tierney is betting that changes at the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation and Queen’s Park will give his fellow councillors reason to reconsider their support for a new casino in Ottawa. The Beacon Hill-Cyrville councillor will bring forward a motion on June 12 to ask city council to reconsider its decision from last fall to reopen the fiery debate over whether Ottawa should be home to a new casino, which Mayor Jim Watson would like to see in the urban area. Tierney voted against the idea of a new casino last October and he thinks re-opening the debate would give more time for the public to be involved in the discussion. He says he doesn’t favour getting rid of gambling entirely and would like to see it remain at the Rideau-Carleton Raceway. But city council gave up too much control when it voted 19-5 last October to accept a new gaming facility, Tierney said. With a new premier at the helm of the province and a complete turnover of the board

COUN. TIM TIERNEY

overseeing the OLG, now is the time to look at whether Ottawa made the decision in too much haste, Tierney said. In the last two weeks, Toronto city council rejected OLG’s proposal for a new casino there and the entire OLG board resigned after the chairman, Paul Godfrey, was ousted. “The old board and chair that sold us this bag

of tricks isn’t there anymore,” Tierney said. The previous board didn’t give Ottawa many options when it came to support of a new casino and Tierney is hoping for more flexibility from the new board. “I’m hoping the new board will have a new direction,” he said. Ryan Kennery, spokesman for the mayor, said Watson would not support such a motion “because there is no new information on this issue.” “The OLG process remains the same as agreed to by city council last year, regardless of any changes in leadership,” Kennery wrote in an email. While other municipalities such as Kingston have found a way to be more prescriptive about the conditions under which a casino would be acceptable, Ottawa just said “yes” with no conditions, Tierney said. “(Kingston) protected their downtown,” he said. “I’m still foggy on why weren’t able to do the same thing. “We haven’t had a proper dialog,” Tierney said. “You can claim we did, but it hasn’t happened.” The province proposed another change recently: an altered gaming facility funding formula that would put additional money into the city’s coffers by sharing four per cent of revenue from gaming tables with municipalities. That also changes the situation, Tierney said. The councillors who voted against the casino last October said there are too many unknowns at the time. “Me and other colleagues felt it didn’t pass

the sniff test,” Tierney said. Last fall, Capital Coun. David Chernushenko voted against the casino and said there wasn’t any evidence or research in favour of a gambling facility that could outweigh the cacophony of negative comments from his constituents. “Once a big project gets going, it becomes awfully hard to apply the brakes,” Chernushenko said last year. Part of the problem was that neither city staff nor councillors fully understood the level of input the city will have into where a new casino would be located. The city definitely has veto power over OLG’s proposed casino location and it has the final say on rezoning any land that a proponent wants to build a casino on. But what is more vague is the city’s level of influence over suggesting where it would prefer to see a casino. The gaming corporation will run a call for proposals and choose the best casino plan and location. Last fall, Orléans Coun. Bob Monette asked whether council could have any input before that decision is made. For instance, he asked if the city could be presented with the top three options, allowing council to indicate to the gaming corporation which one was most likely to be approved. The mayor and city manager couldn’t give a firm answer about what level of influence city council would have over that process, other than simply saying “no.” Councillors would have to vote on re-opening the debate at the June 26 council meeting.

Mother had time only to change her apron and smooth back her hair, and then she would cry. I could never understand if she was so happy why she would cry. My sister Audrey said it was from sheer joy. I thought he looked like he should be a member of Parliament. He always wore grey ďŹ&#x201A;annel trousers, pressed knifesharp and ďŹ&#x201A;annel shirts open at the neck. Uncle Lou was tall and as my sister Audrey once said, he even looks important. We ďŹ ve children never took our eyes off the back seat of the big Buick. We knew for a fact that inside his big brown cow-hide suitcases would be presents beyond belief. Always there were yards of silk for Mother and a new purse: big, with gold clasps and long handles. We had no idea how he knew our sizes, but each of us would get a new piece of clothing and everything always ďŹ t like it had been made for us. Uncle Lou would ďŹ rst stop at a grocery store in Renfrew and there would be grapes, bananas and real ham, not like we had in the smoke house, but big slices -- thick and just right for sandwiches. It would take ages to unpack the Buick. When it had been emptied, the brothers would carry the cow-hide suitcases up to the room my sister Audrey and I shared and Uncle Lou would take over the bed.

wearing them. My sister Audrey said she was quite sure all important men did the same thing with their shoes when they took them off at night, but I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for the life of me ever see my father going to that trouble with the black laced boots he wore to church on Sunday. While Uncle Lou was visiting us we would have trips into Renfrew to the picture show at least twice during his stay. We would have cracker jacks to munch on during the movie and always we stopped for ice cream on the way home at Briscoeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s General Store, which I was grateful stayed open every night until at least 11 p.m. Too soon it would be time for Uncle Lou to pack up and head back to New York. Whole quarters would be thrust into each of our hands and I knew he would give Mother a few bills too which she would immediately put in the blue sugar bowl with her egg money. Everett would swing wide the gate going out to the lane and with the horn going full blast, Uncle Lou would spin the tires on the Buick and he was gone. And there would be such a silence in the old log house, and I would wonder if it would ever be the same again. Mother would cry silently, wiping her eyes and blowing her nose into her apron, and that night our prayers would be for Uncle Louâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safe trip to New York. And when it came time for our silent prayers each of us were expected to say before we left Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s knee, I would pray that Uncle Lou would return soon. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t only for the candy, the picture shows and the rides in the big black Buick, it was because his visit would bring Mother unspeakable joy and for a time, release her from the bonds that held her prisoner on that farm in Renfrew County.

to the creton couch in the kitchen. Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cheeks would be red as tomatoes and Father, who could never understand what all the fuss was about, would treat Uncle Lou like any other visitor who came out to the farm in Northcote. That meant he would still slurp his tea out of his saucer and sit with his feet on the oven door at night reading the Ottawa Farm Journal or the Family Herald and Weekly Star. As the evenings wore on, Mother and Uncle Lou would talk about New York and the many years Mother lived there. He would tell her about the changes: how the elevated trains went for miles and miles now and how a place called the Bronx was the place to live. Mother would listen wide-eyed and ask questions and the talk would go on and on.Uncle Lou had a wonderful singing voice and without fail, every night Mother would get out her harmonica and he would sing and she played. Then she would set the mouth-organ aside and they would sing in harmony, songs they both knew. My very favourite was one called I Had a Dream Dear. I thought it was very sad, but beautiful. Sometimes I would see a tear roll down Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cheek when the song was over. I knew she would be remembering those happy years when she lived in the city she loved before she left for the backwoods of Renfrew County. Even though Uncle Lou helped Father around the farm, he never seemed to get a mark on those grey ďŹ&#x201A;annel pants and shirt. Every night, when he took off his shiny shoes, he buffed them with a cloth made especially for that purpose and he had wood forms he inserted into his shoes when he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

Benefits of

Antioxidants Did you know that the fountain of youth may be right in your own kitchen? By boosting your latest recipes with antioxidant and enzyme rich foods like papaya you can add years to your life! Papaya contains carotenes, vitamin C and flavonoids, which all help to reduce the aging process and keep your skin glowing! Papaya also contains the enzyme papain which helps digest proteins. Optimal digestion helps reduce inflammation which is associated with lifestyle diseases like cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and that dreaded belly weight! When you are adding papaya to your meals, don’t forget to toss in a few of the seeds. Their peppery and slightly bitter nature helps to protect the fruit from unwanted bugs and can help your immunity too! Tip: if you are allergic to latex, be sure and check with your health care team, as avocados, bananas and papaya may cause an allergic reaction.

Nearly 5,000 runners made their way down Fairmont Ave in Hintonburg as part of the Ottawa marathon, which wound through 42 kilometres of Ottawa and Gatineau streets on Sunday, May 26.

Race weekend sees record turnout Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC sports - More than 40,000 people crossed the finish line as part of Ottawa Race Weekend. This was the 39th annual edition of the event on May 25 and 26, which included seven races ranging from a two-kilometre family race to a full 42-km marathon. The races began downtown at the corner of Elgin Street and Laurier Avenue at 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 26 with the 2K event. At 5 p.m., more than 8,000 runners hit the streets for the 5K event, and at 6:30 p.m. the streets were again pummeled by the feet of

9,000 runners aiming for a finish line 10K away. On Sunday, the marathon started bright and early at 7 a.m. with the half-marathon following at 9 a.m. The marathon winner’s circle was dominated by runners from Ethiopia and Kenya, with Tariku Jufar taking the top spot with a time of 2:08:04. The lead Canadian Rob Watson snuck into 10th place with 2:18:33. Ottawa resident Josh Karanja won the half marathon in 1:07:47. Three of the top five half-marathon winners were from Ottawa, and all five were Canadian. With so many people coming into the city for the weekend,

spokeswoman Annie Boucher said organizers have the system down pat after 39 years. “There are always little tweaks I’m sure, a fencing thing or something, but as far as big tweaks or changes I didn’t hear of anything,” she said. “I think things went pretty smoothly.” The event was also a fundraiser, partnering with 28 different charities to give people more reason to run. The Ottawa Hospital Foundation raised more than $405,000. Boucher said it is difficult to know exactly how much money was raised, but in 2012 runners collected close to $1 million for charitable organizations.

It forced me to pace myself - something I had failed to do in my own running regime - and I was surprised how good I felt at the four-kilometre mark. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usually when I have to picture a bottle of wine in front of me and hordes of zombies behind in order to keep running. But more than anything the communal support came from the sidelines. While Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not one to enjoy being yelled at by strangers, the cheers, cowbells and calls of encouragement from spectators along the route were tantamount to a triple espresso. Besides, who could possibly consider stopping when these people so desperately wanted you to keep going? Our feet miraculously continued to carry us forward. Of course, the best pick-me-up came with only 400 metres left, when I was truly starting to believe the ďŹ nish line would never come.

Manotick News reporter Emma Jackson ran her first five kilometre race on Saturday, May 25 as part of Ottawa Race Weekend. Coming up the side, we could hear a group of people screaming and yelling. The cowbells were clanging and we could hear our names carried on the chilly wind. They were screaming for us! Our friends had come, cowbells in tow, to give us those cheers and high ďŹ ves we so badly needed. The sight of my smiling husband and all my friends there to support me - despite my months of griping - gave

Ottawa Needs You!

me enough pep to get over that ďŹ nish line with energy to spare and a grin on my face. It was over; they had helped me survive. The next day, as the marathon and half-marathon passed by my house in Hintonburg, I returned the favour. For two hours my friends and I greeted friends and strangers with chants, cheers and cowbells. We received high ďŹ ves, smiles and ďŹ st pumps in return. Posts on Twitter and Facebook spoke to how much the cheering crowds helped those admirable endurance runners make it to the end. This weekend I ran a ďŹ ve-kilometre race, but I also discovered why people love running in Ottawa. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beauty, the fast courses or the medals at the end, although thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the family thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s born when everyone comes together to support each other on their personal journeys to the ďŹ nish line and beyond. The lesson, of course, can be applied in and out of our sneakers: when we come together, we can accomplish anything. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got only one thing to say about that: more cowbell.

Everyone is invited to attend. will also focus on what people can do to make their homes more fire-safe. The councillor said this may be the first time the community

has had the opportunity to use a fire hall as a community space and encourages all residents in Vanier, as well as neighbours and business owners, to attend.

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. For more information about the meeting or the association, visit vanier-association.com.

“I think the fire service wants to be closer to the community and are interested in initiatives to make the community come together, like barbecues and community events. I believe the chief has said he wants to make this a priority,” Fleury said. Staff and the trucks may be moved for the event, making sure that firefighters from Station 57 are still able to respond to a call, if needed. Residents will have a chance to learn tips about fire prevention, along with hearing the latest updates from its community association. President Mike Bulthuis said he thinks the evening will be a great way to engage residents as well as learn how to prevent more fires in the neighbourhood. The association has a close connection to one of the most recent fires, as a board member’s home the subject to a fire in April. The evening’s prevention talk will be centred around certain types of fires, like the ones that have occurred in Vanier. It

Approximately one week after the pour, the contractor will start removing the upper tower formwork. Once the removal is completed, the scaffolding that surrounds the tower will also start being removed to allow for the completion of the remaining section of formwork for the main deck over the Airport Parkway that connects to the tower. Concurrently, the contractor is also progressing with the fabrication of the suspension cables that will provide support to the main deck by connecting it to the anchorage piece installed at the top of the tower. This fabrication is taking place offsite, in a climate-controlled environment. I continue to closely monitor progress on this project to ensure that this connection is built safely and to the highest quality standards.

EMC news - Station 57 on Beechwood Avenue will be opening its doors to the Vanier community on June 17, allowing the Vanier Community Association to use the space normally normally reserved for fire trucks as a meeting spot for the its annual general meeting. The idea to use the space came from Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury as a way to host the meeting and offer information on fire prevention at the same time. In the past few months, the community has experienced a number of fires ranging from small kitchen and barbecue fires to a $1-million apartment fire Barrette Street. As a result, the association expressed a desire to host a fire prevention forum and Fleury suggested the group to host its annual meeting at a local fire hall. “It gives them the opportunity to do fire prevention,” Fleury said. “I thought it would be better to do it at the (annual general meeting) because we would get more residents in attendance.” The councillor said the idea has also been part of an effort by the fire department to reach out to communities.

Floorball festival open to players from across city Manor Park offers kids different way to spend PD day Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - An activity group in Manor Park aims to score a few more players for its floorball league by hosting a one-day festival. The Floorball Festival will take place on June 7 at Manor Park Public School. Because it’s a professional development day, program director for the Manor Park Community Council Darren Fournier said they are hoping more children will come out to play. “The whole point is to attract new players

and show people the game of floorball,” he said. The council is encouraging neighbouring communities to bring their children to the festival. “We will take as many kids as we can get,” Fournier said. The council runs the floorball league from September to March for children aged four to 15. The game, similar to hockey, involves a shorter stick, a plastic ball and sneakers. Traditionally an indoor game, the council will take this festival outside. There is a registration cost of $25 and runs from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Registration is available online at www.manorpark.ca or by dropping by the office at the Manor Park Public School.

Stabbing victim dies in hospital Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news – Michael Wassill, a 20-year-old from Orléans, died in hospital on May 23 after suffering stab wounds at his Fernleaf Cresent home on May 15. The family of Michael Wassill said he had suffered irreversible brain damage through a statement posted on Facebook on May 19, and wasn’t expected to live. On May 23, they updated the online page to say that he had passed away. “Today Michael passed away peacefully, lovingly surrounded by his close family. While this outcome was expected, it was no less devastating and we are all deeply mourning the loss of our son, brother, nephew, cousin, friend and hero,” said the post. They posted the statement on a Facebook group to support Wassill, who delivered The Orléans News in his neighbourhood. Carson Morin, 20, was already charged with attempted murder after the May 15 stabbing which took place in the afternoon. Wassill’s family members have said he was

Ottawa South News EMC - Thursday, May 30, 2013

EMC news - Three events held annually in Orléans are turning the area into a popular destination to experience Caribbean culture. Again this summer, Carivibe will run on June 15, Häiti en Fête on July 20 and Club SOCCA Kite’s for Cancer on July 28. “We have a product, and we’re the only ones who have this product,” said Orléans Coun. Bob Monette. “We’ve grown, and we’re going to grow even more. We have become the Caribbean destination.” He said that the festivals are working together this year to co-promote one another throughout the summer. He noted that the local hotel is always full during the festivals with out of town guests. “Right now, we’re trying to draw investors into Orléans,” said chamber executive director Jamie Kwong. She said it helps to show that the festivals can draw thousands of people to the area. Organizers from all three events took a few minutes to speak at a promotional press conference recently hosted by Monette. “I remember when Orléans was very unicultural,” said Rachelle DeCoste, who spoke with organizer Edy Joachim. “I’ve watched it flourish in all it’s splendor and vivacity and colour. We are stronger with our diversity.” The annual festivals have all already been booked for 2014, so the trio of events will be able to promote 2014’s lineup to this year’s visitors. Carivibe is the most known of the three events, and has St. Joseph Boulevard closed down for a large parade with dancers and walkers dressed in brightly coloured Caribbean dress costume. The parade is similar to of the Caribbean parade Cropover, to which celebrates the harvest season. The goal is to co-promote the festivals as a group to attract Caribbean festival goers from other parts of Ottawa and Montreal into the area. “One love, let’s get together and be alright,” said Monette. “In Orléans, we’ll change it to one voice, one love, let’s get together.”

8-year-old Kelsey Black’s fundraising gala returns bigger, better Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - Few families remain untouched by heart disease, and no one knows that better than eight-yearold Kelsey Black of Orléans. Kelsey lost her grandfathers to heart disease and has a teenage brother, Diego, who is awaiting surgery for a heart condition. Her father, Bill, once suffered a minor heart attack. Kelsey also once called paramedics when her mother, Maria, passed out, an action that won her a 9-1-1 Children’s Achievement Award at the age of six. Kelsey took the fear and sadness she felt as a result of her family’s misfortune and turned it into a positive thing, vowing to do her part to make heart disease a rarer occurrence than it currently is. So began The Red Carpet Gala, a modest fundraiser she started last year that brought friends and community members together for dancing and fun, helping to raise funds for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. The gala is returning this year on June 2, this time to be held at the Jack Purcell Community Centre in Centretown. Kelsey sent invitations to dignitaries ranging from Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson to the prime minister and even the Queen, from whom she received a reply. “She wrote to thank me for inviting her, but she can’t attend as she’s too

STEPH WILLEMS/METROLAND

Maria and Kelsey Black are busy these days, putting the finishing touches on Kelsey’s June 2 Red Carpet Gala in support of the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Kelsey, seen here with her 9-1-1 Children’s Achievement Award, started the event last year as a response to a family history of heart disease. busy,” said Kelsey. An Ottawa paramedic by the name of Patrick, whom Kelsey met during her 911 call and views as her “favourite paramedic”, is also invited, and was asked to “bring the rest of the

R E G I O N A L

“We want people to know what happened to us can happen to anyone.” Black’s son was a patient at CHEO as a youth. Now 18, he has to wait until he turns 21 for surgery to repair his heart. Black, like Kelsey, hopes that science progresses to the point where surgery would become unnecessary, or at least less intrusive. Both recognize that medical advances in this field can’t occur without adequate funding, which is the catalyst behind the gala itself. Black said she has received support from local businesses during the event’s preparation. Mother and daughter are making a traditional piñata to bring to the gala, and are soliciting donations of candy to fill it with. While organizing the gala is a lot of work, the Blacks know it’s worth it. They envision a future where children aren’t missing parents or grandparents due to heart disease. “It’s a lot of work but we do whatever we can do, and we are happy to do it.” said Black. Doors to The Red Carpet Gala open at 1 p.m. on June 2. The cost is $5 in advance or $7 at the door, and includes entry and a ticket for the door prize. All proceeds go to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. For more information, or to order tickets, contact kelseyblackheartandstroke@ yahoo.ca.

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why organizers of the June 16 Stroll for Liver event â&#x20AC;&#x201C; started by the Canadian Liver Foundation â&#x20AC;&#x201C; want to spread awareness about the risks posed by liver disease. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are people walking around with liver disease who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know it yet,â&#x20AC;? said Gail Carroll, regional director of the Canadian Liver Foundation. The event, now in its eighth year, aims to raise funds to improve pre-

vention, early diagnosis and treatment of liver disease. Taking place on Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day, the Stroll for Liver uses the parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s walking paths as an event route and its abundant green space for the associated barbecue,

The Canadian Liver Foundation has made it easy for participants to sign up and collect pledges (as well as a tax receipt). Stroll registration can be accomplished by visiting www.strollforliver.ca and clicking the Ottawa link. From there, one creates their account. A pledge letter template that can be sent electronically to friends and family is also available on the website. Volleyball tournament registration can be found at www.begin2believe. com, or at www.LoveGives.net

We faced a certain amount of racism being Chinese but it would have been much worse if people knew we were also aboriginal. LILLIAN EVA QUAN DYCK SENATOR

During the presentation, the crowd got a chance to see the Cedar and Bamboo documentary – a tale of four people living in Vancouver who can trace their heritage on to Asian settlers and First Nation tribes. Senator Lillian Eva Quan Dyck is a perfect example of that blend. The Senator – originally from Saskatchewan – was scheduled to speak at the Cen-

Dyck’s mother died when she was just a child, but she said she remembered being told that she shouldn’t let people know about her aboriginal background. “We faced a certain amount of racism being Chinese but it would have been much worse if people knew we were also aboriginal,” Dyck said in the video. The Senator’s father died when she was in high school,

but despite that she went on to get a PhD in biological psychology and had a chance to visit the village where her father came from. Robert Yip, director of the Ottawa Asian Month Heritage Society, said it was good to hear positive things about a senator at a time when there is so much turmoil in the federal government. “She (Dyck) has accomplished so much despite all she would have had to overcome,” Yip said. Stanley, who began studying Chinese history because of his own ancestry, said people are often surprised by the connection because there’s a misconception that Chinese settlers came after the Europeans. But that’s not the case, he said, adding there were 15,000 adult Chinese males in a census in the 1880s; nearly a sixth of the marriages were to aboriginal women. Stanley said the Chinese head tax – which was part of the Chinese Immigration Act of 1885 – as one of the darker

EMC news - The Ottawa Public Library brought a little of the East to the Centrepointe branch on May 21. Thanks to a partnership between the library, the Ottawa Asian Heritage Month Society, The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada and Ottawa Chinese Community Service Centre, residents got a chance to learn about a little known piece of Canadian history. The presentation, entitled Cedar & Bamboo, revealing the little known but fascinating historical relationship between the First Nations and Chinese communities, told the story of enterprising Chinese workers who came to Canada only to be faced with racism. But the story is one of hope, said Tim Stanley, vice-dean of the University of Ottawa and one of the keynote speakers. “Despite their cultural differences, these two groups of people came together and shared their cultures and then

adapted to the Canadian one for their children,” he said. The talk was in honour of Asian Heritage Month and a display currently in the Atrium Gallery at Ben Franklin Place.

In the latest chapter in the legal saga between the city and Groupe Claude Lauzon, a judge dismissed the developer’s appeal of a court order to hand over an engineering report that reportedly states Lauzon’s building at 287 Cumberland St. is unsafe.

EMC news - A judge threw out an Ottawa developer’s appeal of a court order to hand over an engineering report to the city. A lawyer for Groupe Claude Lauzon has said the report bolsters the developer’s argument that its building at 287 Cumberland St. is structurally unsound and should be torn down. On May 8, a superior court judge ordered Lauzon to give the city the report, which was commissioned by Lauzon and prepared by a private engineering firm. But on May 22, the city’s clerk and top lawyer sent a memo informing city council that Lauzon is appealing that order. Then on May 24, a judge dismissed Lauzon’s request to delay handing over the document until the appeal had been heard, effectively dismissing the appeal related to the engineering report. Lauzon is still appealing the judge’s ruling for it to comply with making its building safe and meeting the heritage requirements associated with 287 Cumberland St. The saga began when Lauzon filed an application to Ontario Superior Court on Feb. 20 asking for permission to tear down the building at 287 Cumberland St., which has remained in disrepair for decades. The application states the city has known since 2005 that the building has “sig-

nificant structural concerns” and did nothing. Groupe Claude Lauzon wants to tear the school down and put up condos, but the city refused the company’s demolition application in 2006 because Lauzon did not provide plans for what it planned to build on the site, which is a requirement of the heritage district policies that apply to the neighbourhood. Lauzon received the engineering report in question on Feb. 1, and that set off the latest chapter in the troubled relationship between the developer and the city. The city ordered barricades be put up to keep pedestrians and traffic away from the building in case it fell down. That led to the court application, which states “demolition is now a pressing and immediate concern and demolition should now be undertaken as soon as possible.” In the court application, Lauzon took issue with whether the city’s building inspector could order an engineer hired by Lauzon to hand over documents related to the condition of the building. The school was unsafe for inspectors to enter, and therefore the city’s building inspectors can’t make any orders, the application states. That’s not the case, according to city officials, and inspectors were able to enter the building before the court application was even filed, RideauVanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury said at the time.

Contested election for Sandy Hill positions More nominees than board spaces, first time in current presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memory Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - For the ďŹ rst time in recent Sandy Hill memory, there were a number of heated races to become a new board member on the area community association. Action Sandy Hillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual general meeting took place at the Sandy Hill Community Centre on May 16, but did not wrap up until the early hours of May 17. Going into the meeting, there were 10 positions coming open on the board, with four current members seeking re-election. Six other current board members still have time remaining on their terms. However, because of a growing concerns related to student housing, house conversions, development and problems with garbage and noise in the neighbourhood, a number of new names popped up for consideration, which led to a total of 14 people

competing for the 10 spots. This led to what association president Christopher Collmorgen called one of the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst elections. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is unprecedented, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing,â&#x20AC;? Collmorgen told the large crowd at the meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe we are actually having an election, as contested as it may be.â&#x20AC;? There were more than 150 people who ďŹ led into the community centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main hall for the meeting, a far cry from the 40 or so who attended last year. Many of the people who came did so to speak out about developments, problem areas within their neighbourhood and the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest neighbour, the University of Ottawa. Others were interested in taking part in the voting process and receiving an update on the association past yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s accomplishments. In Collmorgenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s speech to the crowd, the president recounted his past year working alongside other board members on behalf of the community. Collmorgen said he has spent more than 165 hours of time in the past year at meetings with residents, city ofďŹ cials, and developers on behalf of Action Sandy Hill. That number does not account

for hours spent reporting back to the board and residents, attending meetings or responding to emails. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am pleased to see we have an interest in membership, interested in stepping forward and willing to help,â&#x20AC;? Collmorgen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I paraphrase John. F. Kennedy right now, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Sandy Hill needs you, ask not what ASH can do for you, but what you can do for ASH.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Of the 14 community members who put their names forward for election to the board, four were current board members: Alice Kwong, Sophie Beecher, Ă&#x2030;ric Audet and John Verbaas. The election began at 10 p.m., following a series of motions, when each of the 14 potential nominees introduced themselves and then the ballots were cast. The results did not come in until after midnight, with nine board members elected and two others tied for the ďŹ nal position. According to the associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bylaws, a second vote will be done electronically via email, to determine the ďŹ nal board member. Since the meeting saw 150 people in attendance, the board requested a week to update its membership list before the second round of votes are cast. The complete results of the election will appear on the Action

Sandy Hill website by the end of the month. MOTIONS

Before members of the association could even vote, two motions were put forward calling for changes to association bylaws, which were updated last year. One motion called for the removal of â&#x20AC;&#x153;business ownersâ&#x20AC;? from the section identifying who can serve on the board. Collmorgen, explaining the background of why business owners were added, said the reason business owners were added was the board felt they have a vested interest in the community and board members felt they should be represented. Although there was some dispute of the wording of the motion and the reasoning behind it, the motion was unanimously approved by the membership, meaning the business owners can no longer occupy positions on the board. The other motion was regarding the declaration of interest bylaw. Doug Ainslie, a resident who was seeking election to the board, put forward a motion regarding conďŹ&#x201A;ict of interest, speciďŹ cally calling out any board member who could stand to gain ďŹ nancially to recluse themselves

from the board or the issue at hand. The motivation behind the motion was questioned by several residents and Collmorgen, who owns income property in the neighbourhood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that an increased conďŹ&#x201A;ict of interest clause in the bylaws is a good thing, I think that is how we should have dealt with the business interests, not by banning them all together,â&#x20AC;? said Chad Rollins, one of the residents who ran for election to the board. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However I think that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bad forum tonight to make this kind of amendment because it needs to be read and studied and the implications considered.â&#x20AC;? The motion was voted down by those in attendance. The nine newly elected directors are (in alphabetical order): Ă&#x2030;ric Audet Bob Forbes Alice Kwong Yves LeBouthillier Michael Marin Suneeta Millington Chad Rollins Sally Southey John Verbaas The two individuals who have tied votes are Doug Ainslie and Sophie Beecher.

They are usually dispensed in a six-month package, to be applied monthly for the ďŹ&#x201A;ea season. They are safer, easier and more effective than over-the-counter products. These products often have additional beneďŹ ts, such as heartworm protection and tick, lice and mite infestation prevention. Because of their ease of use, their safety, and their effectiveness, they are highly recommended. It is important to read all of the instructions carefully before using any ďŹ&#x201A;ea-control product. Follow all the instructions. Never use ďŹ&#x201A;ea productions designed for dogs on cats, and vice versa. When in doubt, contact your veterinarian.

Fleas, an annual external parasite, are mostly harmless. The biggest problem caused by ďŹ&#x201A;eas is itching. However, some pets or people may be allergic to ďŹ&#x201A;ea saliva, which causes ďŹ&#x201A;ea allergy dermatitis (super-itchy spots with hair-loss); young, sick or elderly pets can become anemic from too much blood loss. These wingless insects are capable of jumping long distances. While cat and dog ďŹ&#x201A;eas prefer to feast on animal blood, they will turn to a human host if needed.

Writing my own happy ending with CHEOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s help

By Vienna Arbic with Isabelle Mailloux Pulkinghorn

My name is Vienna and I am nine years old. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in grade three, play defense on my hockey team, and enjoy doing crafts and writing stories. I love spending time with my parents Sherry and Richard Arbic, and my friends. And I have cancer. My â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;realâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; life had to be put on hold while the doctors at CHEO help me get rid of cancer. Mine is called Germ cell tumor, a very rare form of brain cancer - and I want it to go away. If this were a story I came up with, there wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a port-a-cath, operations and chemotherapy

involved. I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need lumbar punctures and I could be home with my parents and my dogs instead of in the hospital. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be playing hockey and graduating grade three with everyone in my class. If this were a story I made up, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be funny like the Robert Munsch books that I love so much. But cancer is serious.

they knew something was wrong with me, had it not been for the concussion itself and for the team of CHEO neurologists, endocrinologists and oncologists who care for me, my story could have had a sad ending.

One day at hockey practice I hurt my head and ended up with a concussion. I had all the classic symptoms, and even after the prescribed rest period I was not getting better. I was sleeping 18 hours a day, falling asleep at school and again later in the afternoon. I had severe headaches that even the pain medicine would not relieve. I had no short-term memory and my parents say I just wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t myself.

But now, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hope.

Chemotherapy is not fun - it actually makes me very sick. I lost my hair and I look very different because of the cortisone, but it is helping me get better. It is shrinking the size of my tumor, and that is great news! Once the last cycle of chemotherapy          reduce the tumor even more and hopefully make it So my parents took me to CHEO. An go away forever. I hope weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re done by the end of endocrinologist ordered a CT scan and it detected the summer so I can start my hockey season and go a tumor in the center of my brain that was pressing back to school. Mom and dad have already found against my thyroid, pituitary and hypothalamus special hockey equipment that will protect my port             (where the doctors inject the medications). Vassilyadi, a CHEO neurosurgeon, installed a             I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to get back to my real life. Until then, I will take my medicine, continue chemo and rest so pressure; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when I started to feel much better.         The oncologists told us that Germ cell tumors in the brain are very rare but the good news is that they Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funny because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always wanted to become usually respond well to radiation; although some do a doctor when I grow up. Now, as mom says, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m need a mix of radiation, chemotherapy and surgery. getting an insiderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s view and that will help make me be a great doctor someday. I also want to keep In my case, we quickly started with chemotherapy. writing, so maybe Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll become a doctor-writer. But Had it not been for my parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; persistence to one thing is certain: my stories will always have push for physicians to investigate further because happy endings. Just like this one will.
