EMC news – Trustee Mark Fisher said he hopes to transfer the financial burden of maintaining play structures from school councils to a partnership agreement. During Ottawa public school board budget deliberations on June 2, the trustee for Gloucester-South Nepean/Osgoode/Gloucester Southgate asked his fellow trustees to consider earmarking $2.5 million from the capital reserve to replace, during the 2013-2014 school year, the 75 structures identified as being in great need of repair. A few of these structures include one at Dunlop Park and Pushman Park. He also asked staff to set aside an additional $3.5 million in the 2014-2015 budget to replace the remaining 102 over a two-year period. The motion was voted on, with only Fisher and Kanata trustee Christine Boothby in favour, but staff recommended bringing it back to the board in September for a more thorough review. KIDS BENEFIT

“Play structures are an important part of a school since they were built,” Fisher said. “Children certainly benefit from having it in the school.” Fisher said the main reason he brought the motion forward was to seek out other options for funding means. “There is a growing disparity between having school councils raise money for play structures or not,” Fisher commented. “We need to remove the burden from them paying the money to repair and replace them. We need to level the playing field.” He said taking the money from the reserves would give the board an opportunity to use money that is otherwise remaining dormant, and be put to good use. “I’m just trying to change the dynamics in how we fund play structures, and to develop a brand new approach for funding going forward,” he said.

Ain’t no mountain high enough Sabine Gibbins sabine.gibbins@metroland.com

EMC lifestyle – Chris Cameron is taking his passion for climbing to new heights. The avid outdoors enthusiast, explorer, and social activist will be setting sail from Cape Town, South Africa on Jan. 4, 2014, with the goal to climb South America’s second highest peak, Ojos Del Salado, located in the desolate Atacama Desert. But this isn’t just any ordinary climb. For the past year, Cameron has been heavily involved in an initiative called My Kape, an international effort focused on promoting “conscious climbing.” From an early age, nature beckoned to him, and he found himself

immersed in a world of outdoor activities. Playing outdoor sports and activities became his favourite pasttime, and in the end, it gave him the opportunity to experience competitive sports. Cameron’s love of sports would catapult him across the world to Europe where he competed in the Junior Marathon Worlds for one of his diehard passions: flat-water kayaking. It even took him to Florida where he learned to surf. “(Sports) was a great way to travel and see parts of the world I never had seen before,” he said. But he soon found his drive for competing in sports diminishing, and realized it wasn’t for him. “With competitive sports, it requires so much self-focus,” he said. “There is so much based on external

validation. I just felt like there was something missing.” Cameron spent a few years in what he called a transition phase, searching for the one area in his life he was missing. One summer, when he turned 11, would change his life forever. It was at this age where his love for learning about international development issues would be revealed after attending a six-week summer camp designed to introduce youngsters to global issues. But little did he know climbing, mixed with an appreciation to spread awareness of world issues, would eventually be his calling. He remembers travelling to China with his parents when he was 12.

At the meeting, he was stunned to hear many of his colleagues thought play structures were not important infrastructure for school’s, and some thought they were not used as frequently anymore. “I was quite surprised by the discussion they had,� he said. “I was shocked by the thought that they felt play structures shouldn’t be part of the school foundation.� But looking forward, Fisher said he is eager to get back to the drawing board and working with staff on a new plan in the fall.

Staff said they could allocate the $2.6 million on play structures with the most urgent need and available resources. “All play structures are inspected periodically and if unsafe are removed,â€? according to a staff report. “Some sites have already had a play structure removed and have not yet been able to afford to replace it ‌ It is staff’s opinion that while they can look at reallocation of funds within the facilities renewal program , if necessary, it would be prudent to develop a cyclical replacement plan in the overall context of our capital planning process.

New EORC community room to cater to South residents Sabine Gibbins sabine.gibbins@metroland.com

EMC news – No communities have been left behind thanks to a new resource service. The Eastern Ottawa Resource Centre’s (EORC) new community room in Blossom Park, with its mix of programs and services, makes sure of this. Community developer Michelle Lemieux said the new room, located in Homestead Landing’s apartment complex in Saratoga Place, caters to not only residents who live in close proximity to the room, but to those who live in the south – especially immigrants and youth. The plan to create a new space for residents began about a year about when the EORC was approached by Homestead, she said. The organization has always recognized the challenges in reaching out to their vast catchment area, and until recently, were not able to mobi-

“We have limited manpower and rely solely on volunteers to help run the programs, so we are always looking for ways to raise money to keep our programs running for the community.”The new addition to Saratoga Place has seen positive results, specifically when it comes to calls for service from the Ottawa Police Service’s perspective. “That’s because of the leadership we have,” she said. In the future, there will only be

grams and services for youth, seniors and at-risk individuals out of this location. These services include support groups, counselling, after-school programs and homework clubs. “Now that we are able to bring services to them, we hope it bridges the gap,” Lemieux said. The other part they can focus on is finding ways to fund more programs. “Awareness of our services is a huge part of that,” she added.

Mutchmor council raises over $3000 at Glebe garage sale Money to go towards technology purchases michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Students at Mutchmor Public School will have more information at their ďŹ ngertips thanks to a successful fundraising effort. The Mutchmor school council announced at its monthly meeting on June 4 that the school raised $3,380 during the Great Glebe Garage Sale on May 25. After voting to donate 10 per cent to the Ottawa Food Bank, the council then voted to purchase iPads for the school. Council chairwoman Jennifer Wilson said the council has been talking about making a purchase like this for some time and that she is happy the fundraising efforts made it possible. “There has been a desire to spend a chunk of

money on technology, because we have spent money on arts and sciences in the past,� Wilson said. Currently there are 282 students at the school using three iPads. The school’s principal Heather Mace, said the goal is for the school to have at least eight to 10 of the devices. The money will go to purchase some iPads towards that goal, as well as purchasing some accessories and possibly an Apple TV device to project images and videos. There are a number of educational applications available for the iPad, one council member said, during the discussion at the board meeting. The public school board launched its technology plan in September 2012, which highSUBMITTED/APPLE INC. lighted how iPads could enhance and support a Mutchmor School Council has voted to purchase as many as three new iPads for the student’s learning capability. school.

Let’s avoid casino tunnel vision

F

ollowing recent upheaval in the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation boardroom and a change of tact on casinos initiated by the premier’s office, Mayor Jim Watson has also made an about face on the issue. After making the case for the city to support a downtown casino, the mayor now wants to see any new gaming facilities placed at the Rideau Carleton Raceway. While this is great news for anyone connected with the horse racing industry, it should be at least a little disconcerting for many residents as once again city hall is narrowing the discussion about a particular issue. Remember the epic court battles fought by the city over the redevelopment of Lansdowne Park? Many of the arguments against the city partnering with the Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group pointed to a lack of open competition. Isn’t that what’s happening here? Like with Lansdowne, there is at least one other group interested in making a serious bid to build a casino in another area of the city: Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk, wants the opportunity to build one beside Scotiabank Place. A francophone business group has also called for an open competition for any new gaming facility. An open competition only makes sense, not only

for the bidder, but the city as well. Competition would see multiple business plans presented to the city, which staff could in turn evaluate to come up with a recommendation that makes the most sense for Ottawa. More than likely, what makes sense for Ottawa would be a proposal that maximizes gambling revenue for the city, as this is really the only reason to build a new casino – if we’re not in it to make money, we probably shouldn’t be building one at all. This is not to say the raceway can’t present a compelling business case. It has lots of land to build on and few neighbours to annoy. Area gamblers are also familiar with the existing slots, so there is an existing customer base. The biggest drawbacks to the site are a lack of growth potential due to its distance from downtown and the lack of transportation infrastructure. Downtown, on the other hand, doesn’t suffer either of those problems. Downtown’s biggest problem is the lack of a ready-made site. Melnyk’s potential plan would fall somewhere between the two: ample space, good transit links and location near Highway 417, but also not near the city’s major tourist hub. These are the factors that need to be considered by the city, and by narrowing the potential sites to just one, Watson is effectively neutering this discussion.

Considering the what-ifs of Ottawa baseball

T

he future of minor league baseball in Ottawa is connected to series of what-ifs. What if the stadium had been built on LeBreton Flats where, heaven knows, there’s still lots of room for it? More recently, what if someone had thought about baseball when Lansdowne Park was being redesigned? And most importantly, what if the city hadn’t allowed the stadium parking lot on Coventry Road to become hotels? Sure, there are other questions. One of them is whether baseball, as a spectator sport, has simply had its day. When the Ottawa Lynx thrived in the mid-‘90s, baseball was not only popular but trendy. The Lynx Stadium was the place to be seen and frequently sold out. Not many years later, only die-hard ball fans could be found there. How many of those are left and are they being replaced? Obviously, there are people who think so, and bless them. There is hardly a day goes by that someone isn’t talking about moving one Double-A franchise or another into the stadium, so someone must have confidence that the game can return to its former level of glory in this city. If not glory, at least enough people in the

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town stadium to fill a good-sized parking lot. Which brings us back to the most important what-if. There have been various attempts to bring baseball back since the Lynx left town to become the Lehigh Valley IronPigs in 2007. All ran into the same problem that plagued the Lynx in their last days: not enough parking. The kind of beautiful Sunday afternoon that would bring capacity crowds to the stadium would find many potential members of those capacity crowds vainly searching for a place to put their cars. Too many gave up. It’s not a problem easily solved. It would be unfair to allow nearby residential areas to be overrun with cars. Given the amount of space left on the original parking lot side, underground parking or the construction of Published weekly by:

a parking garage would seem to be the only ways to solve the problem. Both are expensive, and risky, considering that no one really knows if baseball will attract the desired number of fans. Ultimately, the what-if game is pointless, since previous mistakes can’t be unmade. For whatever reasons, the stadium is in a bad location and doesn’t have enough parking. The city can’t remove the hotels. Writing the stadium off and moving baseball to another location would be hard to take after the amount of money that has been spent. But ... what if the stadium were at LeBreton Flats, with lots of space for parking, lots of public transit, close to downtown restaurants and bars? Someone actually did think of that back in the day, but the National Capital Commission said no. Surprise, surprise. Or, what if a new stadium was built in conjunction with a new casino? That would certainly put lots of tourists in the vicinity and some of them might be willing to desert their slot machines for a couple of hours to watch a ball game. But that’s a no-go too: the association, physical and otherwise, of baseball and gambling has been rightly frowned upon for years.

Ottawa South News EMC - Thursday, June 13, 2013

What if baseball had been included in the Lansdowne redevelopment plan? That would put the ballpark within walking distance of a substantial number of fans. And those fans would have places to walk to after the game. The problem there is that Lansdowne is tied to football and football stadiums do not lend themselves to baseball, either for the fans or the players. Anyone who has ever seen a baseball game at Exhibition Stadium in Toronto can vouch for that. Oddly, optimism persists in some quarters. It would be nice to think that it is justified. Baseball will never dominate the life of this city, but its lack has certainly been felt.

A caring approach to discipline

O

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse nizes his own selfishness. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;We Careâ&#x20AC;? approach can also be effective when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re responding to something negative. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s say, hypothetically, your son happens to kick a plush soccer ball at his baby sisterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head. He knows heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in trouble, so he goes into pre-emptive strike mode, throwing a tantrum about how the baby is always in the way of his game. Instead of â&#x20AC;&#x153;freaking out,â&#x20AC;? which, to be honest, is my instinctive reaction, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;We Careâ&#x20AC;? approach demands I say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like

you to comfort your sister and think about a better place to play with the ball. I care about both of you. I really want you to be active and have fun, but I need your baby sister to be safe. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot more fun if you play in the basement, where thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no baby.â&#x20AC;?

'RZQORDG RXU$33

The â&#x20AC;&#x153;We Careâ&#x20AC;? approach may sound simple, but it demands a lot from the parents. You have to be present. You have to be reflective. Mostly, you have to resist the urge to scream your head off, demand the child leave the room, and deliver empty threats or punishments. A tall order. But it really is great. And your kids will come to respect you more for it, especially because the â&#x20AC;&#x153;We Careâ&#x20AC;? approach can be surprising to them. My son was so used to mom saying no, for example, that he was ill-prepared for my response when he refused to empty the dishwasher for the third day in a row. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Go ahead,â&#x20AC;? I said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ask me if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to rearrange your dentist

appointment so you can go on your year-end school trip? Ask me if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll pay $15 out of my own money so you can go?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll say no,â&#x20AC;? my son shouted, â&#x20AC;&#x153;because I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do the dishwasher!â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just ask me!â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Will you rearrange my dentist appointment and pay $15 so I can go on my year-end school trip?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes,â&#x20AC;? I shouted, â&#x20AC;&#x153;because I care about you and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve worked hard at school this year and I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important for you to have fun with your friends and celebrate.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Okay, mom,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll unload the dishwasher.â&#x20AC;? And that my friends, is the â&#x20AC;&#x153;We Careâ&#x20AC;? approach to parenting at its best.

ne of my children is going through a â&#x20AC;&#x153;noâ&#x20AC;? phase lately. The daily Q&A goes a little something like this: Mom says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Could you unload the dishwasher?â&#x20AC;? Son says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;No.â&#x20AC;? Mom says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Get your pyjamas on; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for bed.â&#x20AC;? Son says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;No.â&#x20AC;? For a while I thought the best way to get him out of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;noâ&#x20AC;? phase was to say â&#x20AC;&#x153;noâ&#x20AC;? myself more often. Son says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mom, can I have a birthday party?â&#x20AC;? Mom says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;No.â&#x20AC;? Son says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Can I bring my soccer ball to school?â&#x20AC;? Mom says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;No.â&#x20AC;? But after a few weeks of momin-the-negative, things started to get really out of hand. Instead of just a defiant â&#x20AC;&#x153;no,â&#x20AC;? my son was getting into full-scale, raging temper tantrums. I spent a lot of time thinking about what to do. My husband and I would talk about our frustrations. But mostly, we were coming up empty. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until I remembered the â&#x20AC;&#x153;We Careâ&#x20AC;? approach to parenting, advocated by my aunt and uncle, that I came up with an answer. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;We Careâ&#x20AC;? approach grounds every disciplinary action into a caring act. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not easy, but when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re forced, as a parent, to think about being caring rather than angry, it can make the difference between a defiant child throwing a tantrum or one who storms off to consider his actions in silence. The latter, of course, is preferable. It goes something like this. Mom says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unload the dishwasher, please.â&#x20AC;? Son says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;No.â&#x20AC;? Mom says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important for everyone in the house to help. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like you to unload the dishwasher so I can focus on making you supper before your soccer game. Otherwise, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be very difficult for all of us to do what we want to do, which is get to soccer.â&#x20AC;? You see how that works? You give the kid some justification for your actions and when he realizes how loving and caring his parents are, he kind of feels bad and recog-

City en guarde for first sword festival

Didn’t get your War Amps key tags in the mail? Order them today!

Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - The grounds at the Vanier community centre will turn medieval this weekend as men and women come across the land arrive to compete in the community’s first ever sword festival. The event, Borealis Swordplay Symposium, is a two-day event, with art of arms and fierce sword competitions planned for June 15 and a pomp and regalia on June 16. Les Maîtres d’Armes has been teaching historical fencing since 2005, and has been running its program at the Vanier community centre for the past five years. The organization has participated in many other events over the years, but this will be the first year for the swordplay symposium. Jason Smith, a principal instructor and director for the organization, said the event is Les Maîtres d’Armes way to introduce Ottawa to historical martial arts. “We thought it was high time to bring something to the Eastern Canada, to let people in this part of the country who might not otherwise travel abroad to gain the benefit of some of the leading instructors in the world,” he said. The event is divided into the two days, Smith said, so students from all levels can gain instruction on a variety of different fencing styles. “Yes, it will be competitive, but it is not a competition,” Smith said. “The winner is the person chosen among the participants as having shown the best display of the art, with the best sportsmanship, or dare we say ‘chivalric demeanor.’ ” Participants will be divided into factions to challenge and fight one another in amicable competition. The community is encouraged to come out and cheer on the swordsmen and women, while they challenge each other. The Sunday event will also have a charity barbecue that will help raising money for the Youth Services Bureau. The organization has helped raise money for the Youth Services Bureau in the past, and felt hosting a barbecue was a great way to included them in their first event. “We thought we could continue to help the organization we’ve grown to have a relationship with by inviting them to provide our fighters with valuable sustenance during their day-long adventure,” Smith said. There are 30 active members in the organization who come out to the regularly scheduled training sessions at the centre on Wednesday night from 7 to 10 p.m. There is a free trial class offered each week beginning at 8 p.m. for individuals who are interested in seeing if swordplay is for them. “It is great exercise, and addresses the

EMC news - A fresh food market is coming to the Overbrook community this summer. The market will be located on an empty city-owned lot at the corner of Lola Street and Presland Road and will offer patrons the option to purchase fresh produce and dried goods at below-average prices. Mehdi Louzouaz, the RideauRockcliffe Community Resource Centre’s community developer, is organizing the first market day on June 15. “Sometimes it’s not just about accessibility, it’s very much about affordability too,” he said. There will be one market held each month. The other dates for Overbrook will be July 6 and August 24. The location, Louzouaz said, was chosen because it’s in an area of Overbrook the resource centre is looking to become better engaged with. The food is purchased through the Good Food Box program, a non-profit organization run out of the Centretown Community Health Centre, which offers weekly produce boxes for $20, $15 or $10 depending on size. The money for the market was made available through the Community Development Framework funding. The volunteer-run markets were first launched as a pilot project last

year in a few locations across the city, including Sandy Hill and Michele Heights. Louzouaz said the markets are aimed at being a community event to help neighbours connect with each other. Some of the markets offer activities for children, live music, and cooking demonstrations. “It’s a great opportunity to outreach people. It’s not just about celebration: we are addressing things like healthy eating and accessibility to food,” Louzouaz said. Executive director of the RideauRockcliffe Community Resource Centre, Catherine Dubois said the market initiative is a wonderful project. “We take it for granted to access to healthy food, but some people don’t have access, or can’t afford to make healthy options,” Dubois said. “These markets make it easier for them to make those choices.” According to Louzouaz, the idea of the market was born out of the poverty and hunger working group, which is made up members of the Coalition of Community Health and Resource Centres in the city. Even though there are multiple farmers’ markets in the city, the Good Food Markets bring low-cost produce to areas of the city where markets aren’t available. Volunteers are needed to help run the markets and can kaitrin.doll@ofcrc.org for more information or visit gfmottawa.ca.

New languages course available at Wabano Algonquin, Cree to be taught to all ages michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Starting this September, the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health will hold credited Algonquin and Cree courses for interested people of all ages. The new languages program is thanks to Janice Ling, a language instructor and director of the International Languages School of Eastern Ontario. Ling, who runs Chinese and Spanish classes said a recent interaction with a teacher who teachers Algonquin inspired her to create a course available to people from across the city. “The teacher told me that some of the Aboriginal communities are losing their languages, or once they come to the city, don’t use it the same,” Ling said. She then made it her mission to find a way to offer these languages to the public and found funding for the program through the French Catholic school board’s international languages program. “Chinese for example, you can learn in any international program, but you can’t do the same with Algonquin,” Ling said. “I would like to make it the norm.” Ling said without the support from the school board, none of this would be possible. “The board figured out how to find the funding,” Ling said. “When people collaborate, impossible things happen.” The languages program will offer two classes: one for school children, and one credited course for high school students and adults. Space is limited, with a maximum of 18 students per class. The classes will take place at the Wabano centre every Thursday from 6:15 to 8:30 p.m. The cost to take the credited high school course is $30, simply to cover registration costs. Children up to Grade 8 are free. The languages instructor said the goal would be make Aboriginal and First Nations languages as easy to learn as any other language. The program isn’t just about learning a language -- it’s also about learning about the culture and Ling said there is no better place to learn then at Wabano. “It’s a spiritual space,” she said. “If the public uses the space, they are not only learning a language, they are taking in culture.” Lynn Fletcher is the culture coordinator for Wabano and she said she expects there to be a lot of interest in the classes. “Since we opened the new centre, I have been asked by the community about a languages program,” Fletcher said. “We have had some language courses in the past, but the funding only lasted for so long. Thanks to the French Catholic board, these courses will be able to be offered for a long time.” Fletcher said although there are more than 60 Aboriginal languag-

es, Algonquin has similarities with many and by taking the course students may have the ability to converse with many different First Nations, Aboriginals and Métis. According to a 2011 Stats Canada survey Aboriginals who can conduct a conversation in a traditional language is in decline. Only 17 per cent of the population who identified as Aboriginal responded that they were able to converse in an Aboriginal language, down from 2006 when 21 per cent said they were able to converse in an Aboriginal language. In that same report, Stats Canada found that only 4,305 non-Aboriginal people reported knowing an Aboriginal language. For the school board’s international languages program coordinator Frank Da Costa, he said it’s a shame that more Canadians, do not know any Aboriginal languages. “It really struck me that no one is teaching this. It’s crazy for us not to do this,” he said. “If we are able to do this, if we can help make more people capable of speaking one of these languages, we are going to do it.” Working with Wabano, Da Costa said, just made sense. “We like to have our schools where our community is, now all we need is the students,” he said. Currently, the board serves more than 6,000 students learning 20 different languages through its languages program. Da Costa said more than 70 per cent of the students taking the courses are students from outside the board. In addition to adding the Cree and Algonquin language courses, the board will also add Angolan and Swahili. Da Costa said ultimately, he would like to also offer other Aboriginal and Inuit languages to the program, and is currently reaching out to other organizations to see if that is a possibility. “These language courses give them (the students) not only the knowledge of a language, but also about the culture,” Da Costa said. “I like to say that the extra languages we teach open up the children and students to the world and the world to them.” Email languages@hotmail.ca to register for the Algonquin or Cree languages courses. Visit educationpermanente.ecolecatholique.ca or email Da Costa at dacosf@ecolecatholique.ca for more information about the course, or other language courses offered by the French board.

New program to help new moms feel at ease Michelle Nash

Can’t think of enough things to do this summer?

michelle.nash@metroland.com

Let our creative leaders tackle this job. Kids just want to have fun, and they should! They learn and grow through play. Creative arts, the challenge of games, sports and outdoor activities, opportunities for self-expression and exploration are vital to their development. The value of play to a child’s growth is the foundation of all our camp services.

EMC news - New parents have a place to go to help ease them into life with a newborn. The Baby Express and Breastfeeding Support Dropin at the St. Laurent Complex gives new moms, families and caregivers the chance to consult with an Ottawa Public Health nurse and a lactation consultant for babies one year and younger. The service is available at the complex on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Executive director of the RideauRockcliffe Community Resource Centre Catherine Dubois worked with the Vanier Community Service Centre and OPH to launch this program. “Families really do so many great things that make sure their little ones and big ones are thriving,” Dubois said. “Young parents want the very best, and they put in tremendous effort and this is one thing that helps them on their journey.” The program started up in April, offering new parents the opportunity to come out the complex on a Sunday to receive support and advice. “Having this service after hours is important,” Dubois

Summer Camp is the place to make new friends, learn from role models and always have something exciting to talk about at the dinner table. No matter what the weather, summer camps are busy places, with creativity and energy flowing and always full of new adventures.

said, adding that most new families need some flexibility in their schedule.

Young parents want the very best and they put in tremendous effort CATHERINE DUBOIS VANIER COMMUNITY SERVICE CENTRE

“Sometimes, moms feel like its not working, and with our lactation consultant and nurse you can talk it through,” she said. Choosing the location, which is centrally located for Vanier, Overbrook and the Carson Grove communities, Dubois said, was very important to ensuring this drop-in centre would be a success. “The boundaries between Overbrook and Vanier are varied, and most don’t draw lines between the two communities. We wanted to choose an area, that people from a number of the communities, could get to,” Dubois said. The location, she added, has great Sunday bus service, lots of parking and open on

the weekend. “It’s a really popular community place and we have a lovely room that is easy to get to but private for the families,” she said. “It’s welcoming to go to. That was important.”Dr. Merrilee Fullerton, member of the Ottawa Board of Health, attended the launch at the complex and said this new Baby Express location will ensure babies get the best possible start in life. Including the new location at the St. Laurent Complex, there are 20 locations across the city which offers breast feeding or newborn baby support. By adding the east end location, the city announced it is now possible for new parents to get support and advice seven days a week. The Rideau-Rockcliffe centre is one member of the 13 Community Health and Resource Centres working in all neighbourhoods throughout Ottawa and the services at these centres range from counseling to community development in support of neighbourhoods, emergency food programs, early years programs, after school programs and seniors services, a wide range of services in service to people of all ages, cultures and life experiences.

Ottawa South News EMC - Thursday, June 13, 2013

EMC lifestyle - 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. When you come back to reality, you start to look around and you can hardly believe your eyes. Row upon row 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 plasticsheathed blocks of crushed coconut in raised troughs and are clipped 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 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 lifelong farmer 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 Doyle Road property, set up a greenhouse that covers a hectare, and plant 22,000 beefsteak tomato plants. “Just a starter kit,” Mitchell laughed. Today, the farm has 1.6 hectares of greenhouse facilities and produces 11 different commercial products. That includes several tomato varieties as well as eggplants, cucumbers, peppers and green beans. 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 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. Bumblebees are another important part of the greenhouse ecosystem. Brought in from Windsor, Ont., Mitchell’s bees are relied upon 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.

Florida, Costa Rica and Nicaragua are destinations for zip line enthusiasts. But you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to travel that far for exhilarating zip line experiences, which are growing in popularity in North America. Ownership of Logos Land Resort, just outside Cobden, is hoping a signiďŹ cant investment in its new three-leg, zip line course will bring smiles and goose bumps to many more of its customers in coming years. Challenges Unlimited Inc. is completing construction and installation of a parallel zip line course over Astrolabe Lake this month. The course warms up nicely, with the ďŹ rst zip carrying visitors 201 metres across a small bay. Zip No. 2 runs 343 metres across the middle of the lake, before the ďŹ nal 401-metre leg returns buckled-in riders back above the water. The total ride is 3,100 feet, or almost one kilometre, at speeds of up to 35 km/h, usually six metres above the water, but sometimes closer to 25. Logos Land owner Jerrold Paxtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business partner, Kevin Cahill, died last December, but not the dream to continue to improve on what Logos Land offers its customers. Facilities already in place include the water park, with its slide, splash pad, grill house, mini-golf, animal petting farm, beach and giant lake trampolines. There are also timeshare villas, motel suites, 90 recreational vehicle (RV) park and camp sites, rental RVs, 100 wilderness camp sites for trailers or tenters, and the neighbouring Oaks of Cobden golf course.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have four goals in mind,â&#x20AC;? says Logos Land director of marketing and sales Fred Glover. The ďŹ rst goal is to offer something, like the zip line course, that caters more to older youngsters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made investments in recent years for the little kids, like the petting farm and the splash pad,â&#x20AC;? says Glover. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But for older kids, as families grow up, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want them to hit the boredom curve.â&#x20AC;? The same philosophy applies to younger adults. The connection of the zip line for these potential customers also happens to coincide with the ideal weight for zip line passengers. The weight allowance runs from 75 to about 275 pounds. The second marketing goal, says Glover, is to expand Logos Landâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season, which for the longest time has been concentrated in July and August. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The zip line can be used year-round, but more practically it will certainly run in the summer, as well as in the spring and fall.â&#x20AC;? Logos Land has already experienced positives vibes about the new course. For example, response at the recent Ottawa RV Show, which attracts more than 20,000 visitors, was extremely positive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our big posters stopped them,â&#x20AC;? says Glover. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It surprised us, especially the positive verbal feedback from 40-, 50- and 60-year-olds. But weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see for sure this summer.â&#x20AC;? Glover acknowledges thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another zip line, at Chutes Coulonge, while pointing out that Logos Land Resort aspires to become a growing part of multi-activity tourist packages in the area, thus Logos Landâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third

Five simple tips before hitting the road EMC lifestyle - Summer getaways are common indulgence in Canada and for the more than four-in-ďŹ ve of us who own, lease or ďŹ nance a vehicle, exploring the Great White North often begins with the push of a pedal. Whether your plans include cross-country road trips or a weekend exodus to the cottage, here are a few tips to keep your vehicle looking and running its best on the open road: s+EEPITCLEAN3TARTINGA road trip with a clean car is a must, but be eco-responsible. Always look for products that are designed to be tough on grease, bugs, mud and carbon deposits, while still being safe for the environment. s#HECKYOURWHEELS-AKE sure tires are road-trip ready. For better handling and mileage, swap winter tires for summer ones, or all-season types. Check the pressure of the tires before you take off by consulting the ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manual or on the side of the tire. Properly inďŹ&#x201A;ated tires improve grip on the road and

save money at the pump. s 4OP UP mUIDS .O ONE wants to be stuck on the side of the highway. Having proper levels of windshield washer ďŹ&#x201A;uid, engine oil, radiator coolant and brake ďŹ&#x201A;uid can make or break a road trip. Check the ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manual for the recommended ďŹ&#x201A;uid levels. Remember overďŹ lling your ďŹ&#x201A;uids can do just as much damage as not ďŹ lling up enough. s'ETRIDOFTHESALT!STHE temperatures rise, so does the rate of corrosion and after a full-season of battling snow and slush, the chemicals used to clear roads can eat away at a carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body. +EEPYOURCARLOOKINGAND running its best by getting a professional rust protection at least once a year. s4AKEITTOANEXPERT3TAY safe and avoid unforeseen expenses by following your carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommended maintenance schedule.

Father’s Day concert to benefit local family Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - This Father’s Day, the McKay United Church will host a special concert for Phoebe Rose. Phoebe Rose Doull-Hoffman has a rare form of infant leukemia. Diagnosed when she was only nine weeks old in 2010, Phoebe’s treatment so far has consisted of six months of chemotherapy and two bone marrow transplants. In December, Phoebe relapsed and is currently being treated as an out patient at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. For the past two years, Phoebe’s parents, Jenny Doull-Hoffman and Jon Hoffman stopped working in order to be there for their daughter. With money tight, the family admits it has been a struggle, but since her diagnosis her mother, father and sister have worked hard to make sure they are together. “We have spent a lot of time in the hospital and away from home, but have made this work,” Doull-Hoffman

said. “We have traveled for treatment to Toronto and to Memphis and have made a point of staying together at all times. ... This situation has also allowed us a closeness that we wouldn’t have had otherwise, although I would trade this for a healthy child, it has brought us together as a family and allowed us watch our girls grow up.” The McKay United Church fundraiser on June 16 aims to help keep this family fighting together. Classical songs, opera arias and duets will be performed starting at 3 p.m. Admission is $15 per person; children under 12 are free. Tickets will be sold at the door. Since Phoebe’s relapse, there has been a number of

fundraising efforts, including a bottle drive, a school fundraiser and donations raised by family, friends and the community. The money helps the family stay together. “We are very blessed to have this support and such a wonderful and caring community. It has always helped me to know that many people are thinking of Phoebe and praying for her cure,” said Doull-Hoffman. “This support has really helped to hold us up on the most difficult days.” For more information about the upcoming concert, please contact Doull-Hoffman through her blog, PhoebeRoseRocks.blogspot.ca or check out a Facebook group with the same name.

We are very blessed to have this support and such a wonderful and caring community.

JENNY DOULL-HOFFMAN

Phoebe Rose Doull-Hoffman was diagnosed with Infantile Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia when she was only nine weeks old. Her sister, Mae’s school, Manor Park Public School has launched a school-wide fundraiser to help with Phoebe’s medical expenses.

Mutchmor field being considered for construction staging Parking pad, trailers to go on space to be staged in a field that is so well used and well loved,” he said. “I would ask staff if there is place other than the field that can work.”

Construction in tight quarters downtown is nothing new at all DAVID CHERNUSHENKO

He added he thinks most residents in the area would put up with the narrowing of a street if it could save a portion of the field from being taken away. “Construction in tight quarters downtown is nothing new at all,” he said. “We deal with that all the time and we have measures in place to make it work.” Clarke said the board is willing to continue the discussion. “We will be back,” Clarke said. “This was just the start to the conversation. It’s our way to help people understand the amount of work we are doing to make sure this project works out the best for everyone.” Construction is aimed to begin in September, but the board is still waiting on approvals from the Ministry of Environment to begin. Clarke said they hope to get those approvals by early July so the project can be put out to tender at the end of July. The expansion will be a total of 789 square metres and construction will take between 11 and 14 months.

MICHELLE NASH/METROLAND

With little space to work with for construction staging, a portion of the Mutchmor field is being considered for the trailers, tools and material needed to build the new addition to the public school in the Glebe. E: BF ZONE: NE SB-AL-B

EMC news - Dealing with tight quarters at Mutchmor Public School, the school board is mulling how to turn a portion of the school’s playing field into a construction zone in anticipation of a major expansion of the facility. Ahead of the $7.5 million expansion project, members of the school council met with school board representatives to discuss the construction staging plans on June 5. It was then that the facilities manager Peter Wright and Michael Clarke, superintendent of facilities, discussed the option of taking up 20 per cent of the field to house construction trailers, materials and parking for construction workers. Wright said there is no existing practical location on-site that could be used, and a construction company would need a place close to the school to hold all its equipment, office and vehicles. Reaction from the school council was mixed. Vice-chairman David Baar asked Wright and Clarke to place stipulations into the tender contract restricting the company from using the field as a staging area. “If we specify conditions, then they would have to comply,” he said. “So we don’t build a parking lot on the field.” Baar suggested that the staging occur on a portion of Fourth Avenue

or where the schools dumpsters are next to the Fourth Avenue entrance. School council secretary Anna Curtner disagreed, stating she felt safer with the thought of all the construction materials, workers and trucks remained in one place further from the doors to the school. “Even if it takes away from the park, it makes it safer for the kids coming and going to school,” she said. The staging would remain in place for the fall and a portion of the winter before those activities can be moved into the new addition. At that time, Wright said, the board will return the field to its original condition. At that mention, other council members raised concerns of the environmental impact of trucks and a trailer parked on the field, adding the school board should put some measures in place to ensure the least amount of damage occurs. “We will look at all environmental aspects,” Wright said. A number of things remain up in the air, Wright added, stating that any final plans would have to be discussed with whichever company wins the bid to build the addition. Capital Coun. David Chernushenko said he hasn’t heard from the community or the board about the location for construction staging, but said he would welcome working on finding a better solution. “The simple comment is that it’s not a good idea for the construction

Horse industry ‘thrilled’ by raceway casino announcement Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - An entire industry breathed a sigh of relief on Monday, June 3 when Mayor Jim Watson said the Rideau Carleton Raceway should be the only option for a future casino in Ottawa. “Obviously anyone affiliated with horse racing and the Rideau Carleton Raceway is thrilled with the news,” said John MacMillan, founder of the National Capital Region Horse Racing Association, and leader of the Casino Choice Ottawa campaign. “There’s a lot of relieved people at Rideau Carleton because they were worried about losing their jobs.” In a surprising about-face on the issue, Watson informed councillors by email on Monday night he would propose “that the city identify the Rideau Carleton Raceway as the only acceptable location for an expanded gaming facility in Ottawa.” He tabled his motion at the city’s finance and economic development committee on June 4, to be considered in July. Given that the Ontario Gaming and Lottery Corporation will only allow one gaming site in each designated gaming zone - killing the hope of a satellite slots program to complement a downtown casino - Watson said it was “becoming increasingly clear

that there would be no future role for the RCR given the OLG’s most recent position,” he wrote. “Therefore, I do not believe we should jeopardize the Rideau Carleton Raceway operation by not being crystal clear to the OLG prior to the start of its RFP process.” For the past year, Watson has vocally supported an urban casino location. Community leaders like Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson and Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa MacLeod have been fighting against him to save the raceway’s monopoly on gaming in the city. The raceway has been suffering since the end of March, when the province ended its 13-year revenuesharing agreement through the Slots at Racetracks program. With a new casino planned for downtown - and thus the permanent removal of the racetrack’s slot machines - the raceway was all but doomed. Not surprisingly, Thompson said he was very happy to hear the mayor had changed his mind. Thompson said he “was going crazy” trying to make OLG and Watson see the racetrack’s potential. “I’ve said this continually: We have 1.7 millions visitors going every year; they give $70 million to the province already; they’re going to build hotels, they have ample parking,” Thompson said. “It’s so logical

 

 

Since 2000, the Rideau Carleton Raceway has hosted 1,250 slot machines that subsidized any losses from running the racetrack programs. Without a revenue sharing program, the racetrack is unsustainable. “In the current formula horse racing is only limping along and losing money,” said MacMillan, a horse racer of 25 years. He said the raceway’s revenues have dropped drastically since the provincial agreement ended on March 31. But there may be some hope on the horizon. Under new Premier Kathleen FILE Wynne, the OLG has moved in a Mayor Jim Watson has scrapped his idea of a downtown casino, and new direction on casinos and she has now says the Rideau Carleton Raceway is the only appropriate place taken up the torch for the horseracing industry - at least in principle. for a gaming facility in Ottawa.

Free yoga, workshops, concerts at city hall this summer Staff

THURSDAYS

EMC news - The city will bring some life to the Rink of Dreams “patio” with a series of events throughout the summer. From yoga to concerts, dance lessons to programs for kids, Marion Dewar Plaza on the Laurier Avenue side of city hall will come alive this summer. The plaza is now home to the outdoor winter rink, which becomes a large oval cement patio in the summer. That space remained largely unused during its first summer season since it was constructed in 2011, but the city has prepared an action-packed schedule for the space this year.

In a press release, Mayor Jim Watson said adding ongoing events and programs to the plaza will help bring more people to city hall – something he has been trying to promote in this term of council. The programming is free of charge and will run from July 9 to Aug. 27. No registration is required. The following programs will run through the summer: TUESDAYS:

• Noon to 1 p.m.: hatha yoga • 2 to 9 p.m.: Summer Art Market • 7:30 to 9 p.m.: Circus Jam WEDNESDAYS

• 7:30 to 8:30 a.m.: Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health’s Pow Wow Pump • 6 to 9 p.m. July 11 to Aug. 1: Be in the Band (in partnership with RBC Bluesfest)

• Noon to 1 p.m.: Taoist tai-chi • Noon to 1 p.m.: performances by Odyssey Theatre • Running clinics (times to be determined) • 6 to 11 p.m.: outdoor salsa dancing, sponsored by Azucar! Latin Dance Company and Salsa Force

The space will also host a number of ontime events this summer, including a rollerderby weekend, a silent movie night, Chamberfest musical concerts, Creative Mornings events and more. Watch ottawa.ca or follow @ottawacity on Twitter for more information.

Councillor wants out-of-town toll on 174 Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Ottawa should charge out-oftown motorists for the privilege of driving on highway 174, says Coun. Stephen Blais. The Cumberland councillor is proposing the city look at making the municipally owned highway into a toll road, perhaps using an electronic toll system similar to Highway 407 in the Greater Toronto Area. People move to surrounding municipalities like Clarence-Rockland because homes are less expensive, Blais said, and then they commute west into the city for work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Frankly, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fair that Ottawa taxpayers continue to subsidize their use of the road,â&#x20AC;? Blais. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t consume our services for free.â&#x20AC;? Blais estimates that around 20 per cent of the vehicles on highway 174 in the morning come from outside the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boundaries. The number of vehicles moving through the highway 174/Highway 417 split on any given morning is around 9,200; 2,200 vehicles get on highway 174 in Clarence-Rockland each morning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you took those vehicles off, we wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to widen the split,â&#x20AC;? Blais said. Highway 174 is an expensive road to maintain because of the volume of trafďŹ c it handles and the speed at which vehicles move. Aside from the bus Transitway, no other Ottawa road has as high a requirement for snowplowing, salting and pothole repair, Blais said. He couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t provide ďŹ gures for the annual maintenance cost. The city is currently in the process of conducting an environmental assessment to investigate the possibility of widening the highway and the roadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;splitâ&#x20AC;? at Highway 417 is being widened this year. The toll would be justiďŹ ed because it is an â&#x20AC;&#x153;extremely rare circumstanceâ&#x20AC;? for a municipal-

ity to have the responsibility of maintaining a highway, Blais said. Most highways are overseen by the province, with a couple exceptions, such as the 174 and the Gardiner Expressway and Don Valley Parkway in Toronto. Since the province downloaded responsibility for highway 174 to the City of Ottawa in the 1990s, the city has requested several times

â&#x20AC;&#x153;They shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t consume our services for free.â&#x20AC;? STEPHEN BLAIS

that the province re-assume responsibility for the highway. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The province has no intention to re-upload it,â&#x20AC;? Blais said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That would be the best-case scenario, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe it will happen.â&#x20AC;? To demonstrate the city is serious about this issue, Blais is working with city staff on the best way to approach the possibility of adding a toll to the highway. The councillor planned FILE to bring a notice of motion to the next council Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais wants out-of-town commuters from municipalities east meeting on June 12, or perhaps a direction for of the city, like Clarence-Rockland, to pay a toll to help cover the cost of maintaining highcity staff to research the idea. Blais said the way 174. province would have to enact a regulation to allow the city to exercise toll-taking authority that is granted in the Municipal Act. Clarence-Rockland Mayor Marcel Guibord did not respond to an interview request before deadline, but Blais said the mayor has indicated he is open to discussing options that would see residents from Clarence-Rockland share the cost of maintaining or expanding highway 174. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is an understanding in the municipalities east of the city that this is a problem,â&#x20AC;?

Pedestrian & Cycling Pathway Expanding In River Ward – Public Open House

Attach a War Amps confidentially coded key tag to your key ring. It’s a safeguard for all your keys – not just car keys.

The extension of the Sawmill Creek Constructed Wetlands fully accessible pedestrian and cycling pathway from Walkley Road to Brookfield Road is progressing well. Work is underway on the detailed design, and construction will start later this summer, barring any unforeseen circumstances.

If you lose your keys, The War Amps can return them to you by courier – free of charge.

Ottawa mayor Jim Watson joined Laureen Harper and students from St. Michael Catholic High School in proclaiming June as Soles4Souls month in the city. The initiative collects donated shoes for use by those in developing countries. Kingsburg said it was the first time their school had participated in Soles4Souls, and implied it wouldn’t be the last time they did, either. “I highly doubt it,” she said. “It was very well received.”

EMC news - Few things are as basic and useful as footwear, which is why a growing initiative is aiming to put more shoes on the feet of those who need them. Soles4Souls is seeking to collect 100,000 pairs of donated shoes in the Ottawa area and now has the support of some powerful partners. On June 5, Soles4Souls Month was declared in Ottawa by Mayor Jim Watson, who spoke at the recently opened Dymon self-storage building at Carling Avenue and the Queensway. Dymon Storage will be using its trucks to ship collected shoes to sorting centres in preparation for their journey overseas. A large shipment will be bound for Rwanda in July. “The fact is, the majority of people in Ottawa take wearing shoes for granted,” said Steve Creighton, senior vice-president of Dymon Storage. “Despite our prosperity, many people in our community do not own proper footwear,” he said. “At the same time, many people around the world face even greater hardships. In many countries, shoes can prevent lifethreatening disease, injury and illness.” Creighton thanked charity supporter Laureen Harper for attending the announcement and declared that after just four official days of this year’s initiative, more than 25,000 pairs of shoes have been collected. Soles4Souls is teaming up this year with Sole Responsibility, an Ottawa-based charity. The idea behind Soles4Souls came in the aftermath of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, when a Nashville shoe executive collected 250,000 shoes as part of the relief efforts. Following Hurricane Katrina the following year, the same group of companies collected 1 million shoes. Soles4Souls officially formed the year after that. The Canadian branch formed four years ago following the Haiti earthquake, and the campaign came to Ottawa for the first time last year. “It was one of those charities that was just so practical and sensible, just like shoes are in many ways,” said Watson. “The City of Ottawa is very proud to support the Soles4Souls campaign. We’re eager to bring awareness to the cause through events like this and to be an active participant in the campaign. Individuals can drop off gently-used shoes at city locations like city hall or at one of seven City of Ottawa recreation facilities that are designated drop-off centres.” Students from St. Michael Catholic High School in Kemptville were also on hand for the proclamation. Their social justice club hopped on board the initiative following a suggestion by teacher Heather Kingsburg. “Our school brought in 560 pairs of shoes over the course of two weeks,” said member Chloe Preston, who joined club member Jordan Konery in speaking about the school’s enthusiasm over the initiative.

EMC lifestyle - A creamy refreshing, cleansing drink that is a version of the Indian yogurt and fruit drink, called lassi. It can be a nice finish to a spicy hot meal or an interesting drink idea if serving a slightly spicy meal. A lassi is of great importance in the Indian diet, because it contains fat, protein, lactose, calcium and phosphorus. It has been said in Indian literature that regular consumption of lassi drinks reduces the chances of your hair going white before it is time. Preparation time: 10 minutes. Serves: six. Makes 1.5 litres (six cups).

Arrival of an ice box was like Christmas time

U

ntil that fateful day in the middle of summer, Mother had no choice but to keep the perishables on a swinging shelf in the dug-out under the house. It was a dank and frightening place and could only be entered from the outside. There was no trap-door in the kitchen like Aunt Bertha had on the next farm, only two big doors tilted against the house that had to be lifted to gain entry. It was a place I hated with a passion and Mother too never quite got used to putting butter and milk on the swinging shelf. Blocks of ice were put in big tubs down in the dugout in the hope that what Mother put down there would be kept chilled enough that we all wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t die from food poisoning. Of course when the ice melted, the big tubs had to be hauled up and emptied, a job for my big strapping brothers. But it was Grandfather who changed all that one day when he came out from Ottawa and ordered Father

MARY COOK Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories to hitch up the wagon and head into Renfrew. Of course, Grandfather had no intention of riding all the way into Renfrew sitting on a rickety seat on a wagon. He drove ahead in his rumble seat car, telling Father where to meet him. Everett went with Father to help. The purpose of his trip into town was to buy Mother a brand new Barnett ice box. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Uncivilized! Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what it is!â&#x20AC;? he said time and again on his regular visits to the farm and when one of us kids was sent down into the dug-out to bring up milk or butter or anything else that Mother hoped would keep fresh long enough so that we could eat it. We always had had an ice house and it was always full of blocks of ice, but never

until that wonderful day, did we have an ice box to put the blocks in. Mother spent the entire morning trying to come up with a decent place to put the ice box in the kitchen. It had to be well away from the Findlay Oval, of course, and it couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sit in the window looking out into the grape arbour -- thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where the old pine table sat and where we had our meals. Finally, without even knowing what it would look like or what size it was, Mother decided it would go kittycorner next to the little room off the kitchen that served as Mother and Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bedroom. So that place was scrubbed by Audrey, wiped dry, and newspapers laid out covering the entire corner. For reasons unknown to

me at the time, Mother made all of us change from play clothes into our next-to-Sunday best -- was it because we were getting an ice box or was it because Grandfather would be there for a visit? At any rate, we were spit-clean when Grandfather drove back into the yard and said the new ice box would be here as soon as Father could get back from Renfrew. Mother, in a clean Dan River dress and a fresh white apron, sat on the back stoop waiting for its arrival, with Audrey and I perched on the pump stoop. Grandfather brought out a kitchen chair to the yard. He wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sit on anything that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spotlessly clean in case he got a mark on his white flannel pants. It was like we were waiting for the Queen to arrive. Then we saw the wagon round the corner at the far end of the lane and as it got closer we could see Everett standing with his arms wrapped around what looked like a casket standing on its end. Father pulled the wagon

up close to the kitchen door. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My oh my,â&#x20AC;? Mother said, not even waiting until it was loaded off onto the ground, she leaned into the wagon and rubbed her hands all over the new ice box like it was made of gold. OFF THE WAGON

It took the three brothers and Father to lift it off the wagon, with Grandfather telling them to be careful and not scratch it. It was shiny wood, the colour of caramel candy, with silver handles, and I thought was grand enough that it could easily have sat in the parlour. Without even being told, Everett tore to the ice house, and using the big black iron tongs, hauled a block of ice into the house. It was beastly hot in the kitchen with the Findlay Oval pumping out heat and I secretly wondered if the ice box would cool off the whole house. Emerson swung open the little door on the side, and Everett plopped in the block of ice. Audrey and I were sent

down to the dugout for all the perishables and Mother arranged it all in the ice box like she was laying out blocks for a quilt. Grandfather had thought of everything. While in Renfrew he bought an exact duplicate of our white granite dish pan and he slid it under the ice box to catch the drip. We sat around the ice box on kitchen chairs, as if waiting for it to tell us something. It sure looked mighty nice in the corner and I could tell Mother was as proud as if someone had bought her a new car. What a change the new ice box brought to our old log house. Now we had it as well as a telephone, thanks to Uncle Lou. Emerson wondered what we had to do to get running water, and I longed for the day we could just push up a switch and a light would go on just like at my little friend Joyceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house. Sadly, water from a tap and light from a bulb were not to be. Both would have to wait until the day we left the farm many years later.

Osgoode gallery celebrates young artists pieces if they see something they like,” McKerracher said.

Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - All the coolest hangouts are decorated with local art, and that’s exactly the atmosphere the Osgoode Youth Association wants to create on Osgoode Main Street. On Saturday, June 22 O-YA will officially open Gallery B, a youth art gallery inside the youth centre displaying paintings, photographs and jewelry created by kids and teens in the Osgoode area. From 7 to 9 p.m. family and friends, members of the public and dignitaries including Mayor Jim Watson will celebrate the 20 artists displaying their work on the walls. O-YA director Nicole McKerracher said the catered event - which includes live folk music from several local youth - will impress even the most cultured art snobs. “They’re really good,” she said. “You get that youthful, natural creativity and when you pair it with technical skills you get something incredible.” Since February, O-YA has offered art workshops in photography, two styles of acrylic painting and jewelry making. With help from a $9,000 grant from the Community Foundation, established artists taught basic and advanced techniques for each medium, and helped the students perfect several pieces to display in the gallery. All displayed art will be for sale, with a third of the money going back to the young artist, a third supporting O-YA’s continuing art program, and the final third donated to Me to We Foundation which encourages young people to pursue social change. McKerracher said the items will be priced between $30 and $50, to keep it accessible for all ages. “I’d like it to be accessible enough that other youth can purchase the

GOING PLACES

The art program has given several artists a renewed drive to pursue their passion as a career. Emily Dozois, a 17-year-old St. Mark High School student, has been taking photos since she bought herself a point-and-shoot camera for her 15th birthday. She quickly realized photography was a passion, and promptly signed up for a photography course through her school. Now she is planning a career in the medium after spending a month working with Stittsville photographer Sarah Rozema-Seaton perfecting her craft at the O-YA workshops. “I’m excited to see my work on the wall,” Dozois said. “I’m hoping someone who hasn’t seen my photos before will see them and love them.” Dozois has become increasingly fascinated with the technical side of photography: timing, lighting and post-production editing are major elements in her photographs, which often layer several photos together to create new meaning. One of her entries is a self-portrait of Dozois’s bare back and neck, with a photo of branches superimposed on top. Another self-portrait captures the eerie qualities of a foggy night on her street in Osgoode, which had her running back and forth as she set her camera timer to get it just right. She said she’s not trying to send a specific message in her art. RENAISSANCE ARTIST

“The idea is that it will make everyone who looks at them think of something, and they’ll take something away,” Dozois said. Lily Stone participated in all four

The 12-year-old Kars on the Rideau Public School student has a finger in almost every creative pie; her house in North Gower displays whimsical sculptures she and her brother made at O-YA, and in her bedroom hangs a huge Dr. Seuss-inspired painting she made several years ago. She is part of a musical duo with her friend where she sings and plays

guitar, and has entered a solo ukulele/singing act into the ongoing Osgoode’s Got Talent contest. During the art program, Stone said she learned the most in the photography workshop, because she had never taken formal classes in that medium before. “We went outside a lot and I liked when we looked at all the photos and she gave us constructive criticism,” Stone said. In the painting workshops, Stone

said she learned more about setting up a painting by starting at the back and moving forward. Her work will be on display with the others. “I’ve always wanted to have a painting in a gallery,” Stone said, although she admitted it’s a bit weird to have her work hanging in a stranger’s house. “I’ve never given my art to someone I don’t know before.” For more information about the gallery opening visit www.o-ya.ca.

Dream team ready for Walk, Roll & Run Event takes place June 16 at Scotiabank Place Blair Edwards blair.edwards@metroland.com

EMC news – Chris Neil’s dream team won’t score many goals but they’re sure to win a few hearts. The team, made up of six children from the greater Ottawa area who are receiving treatment and respite services for life-limiting illnesses, are leading the charge for this year’s Walk Roll & Run fundraiser at Scotiabank Place on June 16. Neil and his wife Caitlyn were on hand at the Ottawa Senators home arena on May 31 to introduce the children and officially kick off the 10th-annual fundraiser for Roger’s House. “It’s so inspiring to visit the children and families at the house,” said Caitlyn. “Understanding the challenges they face every day and how they persevere is incredible.” The veteran of this year’s dream team is Isabella Carriere, an 11-yearold who has been with the pediatric palliative care centre since it first opened its doors in 2006. The Lancaster, Ont. girl has metachromic leukodystrophy, a rare genetic disease that results in a loss of brain function, and physical symptoms including muscle wasting, paralysis, blindness and dementia. There is no cure. “We go there sometimes for help when we don’t know how to treat her,” said Isabella’s mother Melissa. Last month, Melissa and her husband Stephane took Isabella to Rogers House because she was having trouble sleeping and cried throughout the night. “Now she’s sleeping good,” said Melissa. “We’re pleased.”

Now in its seventh year of operation, Roger’s House has admitted more than 2,200 children from across Ontario and western Quebec battling serious illnesses. The eight-bedroom facility, located on the grounds of CHEO, provides a home away from home for the child and their family, where staff and volunteers provide treatment and respite care. Four-year-old Campbell Labonte, an Embrun boy who has cerebral palsy and is deaf and blind, was admitted to Roger’s House two years ago. “It was the best decision we could have made,” said Campbell’s mom, Joanna. “It’s provided such great support to our family; I mean we’re forever thankful. It’s a resource that we’ll always be able to use until Campbell’s 18, and for that we know it’s going to bring a lot of hope to our family.” Joanna and her husband Bert both work full-time jobs in the Canadian Armed Forces. “Roger’s House offers us that break when we need it, to just rejuvenate and feel ourselves again.” Roger’s House was a great help for Alex Vanzyl, whose 18-month-old daughter Maci has Phelan-McDermid syndrome, a rare chromosomal disorder which impairs speech, movement and development, and requires 24-hour care. Maci is fed using a tube and sleeps hooked up to a machine to assist her breathing. “She’s deemed palliative because she needs equipment to sleep at night,” said Vanzyl. Even with the help of her mother, providing continuous care for a child with a life-threatening disease is exhausting, said the single mom from Beaverbrook. “It’s just a break for me,” Vanzyl said of the help she received from Roger’s House. “They’ll take care of her, they cuddle her they love her, it’s like extended family.

Campbell Labonte, a four-year-old Embrun boy with cerebral palsy, left, Emily Wall, 13, Isabella Carriere, 11, and their parents listen as Chris and Caitlyn Neil annouce the kick-off the Scotiabank Walk, Roll & Run fundraiser at Scotiabank Place on May 31. The 10th-annual event provides money for Roger’s House’s operating and capital costs. “We mainly use it for respite, but there’s times when we’re admitted to CHEO and then we’ll just go to Roger’s House and stay for a bit and we’re totally comfortable and then go home.” Henry Newton, an eight-year-old Ashton boy, has been visiting Roger’s House for the past two years, receiving respite care. Henry has Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, a difficult-to-treat form of epilepsy that appears between the ages of two to three, characterized by frequent seizures. “He has hundreds of little seizures every day,” said his mother Miranda. Two years ago, Henry was able to sit up, talk and manoeuvre his wheelchair. “The seizures came on suddenly and robbed him of that,” said Miranda. He’s not really talking anymore.

He’s having a hard time holding himself up.” Miranda and her husband Terry have gradually improved the situation with the help of the staff and volunteers at Roger’s House. “It gives us breaks,” said Miranda. “It gives us time to spend with the other two kids. “I don’t worry about him while he’s there. They take care of him and they look after us as well,” she added. “It’s about the whole family, not just Henry.” FUNDING

About a quarter of the home’s funding comes from the Ottawa Senators Foundation, which raises nearly $800,000 annually through events like Walk, Roll & Run. “The community has been so sup-

portive,” said Lloyd Cowin, executive director of Roger’s House. “We really appreciate it.” The money pays for medical supplies, special equipment for the kids, bereavement support for the families and the special extras that make Roger’s House a home, such as a children’s playroom. “These families have a lot to deal with in their lives and anything we can do to help them is a real plus,” said Cowin. The number of applicants seeking a spot at Roger’s House keeps going up from year to year. “We’re afraid we’re going to go over capacity in the coming year,” said Cowin. The children’s treatment centre takes in 450 patients a year and has a case load of 160 kids at any given time. “We usually have occupancy of 85 per cent, which is about ideal for us, because it gives us a little wiggle room to deal with emergencies,” he said. The house hopes to turn its basement into a teen recreation room, with a pool table, a television set and a stereo. “Right now the playroom is younger child oriented,” Cowin said. “We’d like to have a place teens feel comfortable with.” The money from the upcoming Walk, Roll & Run will help pay for that renovation. FUNDRAISER

This year’s Walk, Roll & Run will feature a tot-trot, and two-kilometre and five-kilometre routes, suitable for people of all ages. Scotiabank Place will also offer a family fun zone, which includes Sens Street Tour activities, such as balloon artists, face painters and a barbecue. Anyone who wants to support the event can register and collect pledges or sponsor Chris and Caitlin Neil at www.sensfoundation.com.

Climber’s career keeps heading uphill Continued from page 3

“That was my first real experience being in such a diverse country,” he said. “It was an eye-opening experience; there would be such huge contrasts in different areas of the country, from intense poverty to wealth. It really sparked my international focus. A certain mentality started to happen to me.” As he grew older, he continued to enjoy sports on the side, but never ceased to find a balance combining both his love for outdoor activities and an international outlook. In the past year, climbing has been his main focus, he said, and he takes every opportunity he can when he’s home to climb. THE CLIMB

His first real glimpse into international development work started in Malawi, India, where he was working for an NGO and earning wages working at a hostel two years ago. It was there he met his good friend and climbing partner Kai Fitchen, a South African native who, at the age of 15, climbed Mount Kilimanjaro. The two became fast friends, and Cameron could feel the excitement building as Fitchen explained the goal behind My Kape – climbing in a socially responsible way. Their carbon footprint, for instance, will be limited to only using transportation wherever required. What they’re trying to do is get back to the basics of climbing while learning about the world around them, said Cameron. “There is such a commercialization of climbing,” said Cameron. “It’s become such an industry now; people tend to forget to enjoy the whole experience of it. When you let your ego get in the way, you become very negative.” “There is something so peaceful about connecting to the world and being on that rock face. It’s such a pure moment.” In 2012, Cameron joined Fitchen and the My Kape team in their first expedition to climb Mount Kenya. And, he said, it was about so much more than just the destination. “I was hooked,” he said of his first climb. The My Kate ethos is about climbing, travelling, and living in a manner that is socially and environmentally responsible. Determined to stay carbon neutral, the Kape 2 Kenya (K2K) team travelled over 14,000 kilometres (Cape Town to the peak of Mount Kenya and back) only by foot and public transport, often cramped up in over-packed, humid, chicken-ridden buses. In an effort to draw attention to environmental issues, the team also visited more than 600 students at their schools to share K2K eco-programs and discuss the importance of sustainability.

able in my surroundings,” he said. “I’m more aware and conscious of what those threats are. I’m doing a lot of things I haven’t done before, but I’m excited for it.” That includes sailing and climbing over glaciers. “I’ve always been one for confronting my fears,” he said. For Cameron, this is only the beginning of his own personal journey.

The expedition took nearly six months to complete, and was an enormous success. Not only did they accomplish all their objectives for the expedition, but they also managed to attract media attention and won Nightjar’s Reader’s Choice for Adventure of 2012. “The whole idea of My Kape is to challenge the status quo,” he said. “It’s about making the mountains better for us.” Cameron is now in his seventh year of undergrad studies of International Development at Carleton University and has ambitions to one day go to med school.

JUST THE START

KAPE 2

The objective behind My Kape is to climb all of the seven second summits – the second highest peaks on each of the seven continents. Kape 2 Atacama will set sail from Cape Town in the new year, and will take approximately nine months to complete. The journey is along the same lines as that of its predecessor as the team continues to promote the My Kape ideal of travelling and climbing in as environmentally responsible way as possible. After reviewing their pilot project, the team made a few tweaks to the program, but still maintained their goal of being eco-conscious, explained Cameron. To kick off the expedition, the team will be racing in the Cape to Rio Yacht Race, one of the most highly anticipated races across the South Atlantic which draws spectators and competitors from around the world. After arriving in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, they’ll make their way south the glacier-ridden lands of Patagonia, and then back north to Ojos Del Salado, and eventually to Peru to climb Artesonraju. On the way, they’ll make stops at schools, organizations and projects which promote My Kape’s spirit. Like Kape 2 Kenya, they’ll facilitate a variety of activities to school children which promote and support individuals and organizations currently engaged in innovative practices within their community to promote environmental sustainability. The trip, though, is as much about education as it is awareness. Throughout the course of the expedition, team photographers and videographers will document the trip, drawing attention to what the group will accomplish. “It’s a learning opportunity for us and them,” he said. “It’s a fantastic amalgamation of various interests and social justice issues that are often overlooked.” Cameron said they hope to provide a human face to the issues at hand, and bring that knowledge back to their homelands. “We are hoping that we can build these bridges, and hoping they can

South Ottawa resident Chris Cameron’s passion for climbing and his constant thirst for learning about global issues will take him on another adventure this coming January. be inspired,” he added. “We’ll be mapping where we go, and highlighting the villages we visit. We want to connect with them, and create a sense of global citizenship.” For Cameron, the journey begins in a few weeks’ time, when he will head to Cape Town, South Africa, for sailing lessons. But while the journey lies ahead, so does the realization it will not come without a financial burden.

Thanks to generous sponsors, the team will be well-equipped along the way, as climbing gear doesn’t come without an often hefty price. Cameron said additional sponsors and donors are still welcome to come on board and support the expedition. As an experienced climber, he knows there are risks involved in this type of expedition, but ultimately, it’s about trusting oneself. “I’ve always been very comfort-

The climb is just one part of that. The 23-year-old said he has been extremely fortunate to be immersed in the world, and has been keen in getting to know each place he’s visited, sometimes in harsh circumstances. “It provides a connection to humanity,” he said of the ongoing social justice issues. When he came back from Malawi, it took him a while to get re-accustomed to the ways of the western world again. “It was such a culture shock,” he explained. “I got accustomed to the culture and way of life out there.” However, despite their challenges they face, they remain connected to life, and that’s what is most inspiring and important to him. It’s something he knows he can take back with him. To Cameron, it’s about the journey and not the destination. For more information, visit www. mykape.com.

Ottawa South News EMC - Thursday, June 13, 2013

EMC news - The fourth annual Ride the Rideau fundraiser hopes to attract new cyclists with a shorter route for this year’s event. Organizers at the Ottawa Hospital Foundation have added a 50-kilometre bike ride along the Rideau River to complement the original 100-km ride to fund cancer research on Sept. 7. Event co-ordinator Michelle van Vliet said riders in the new 50-km category will do half the original route between Ottawa and Merrickville and then will be shuttled the rest of the way to the evening celebration in the small riverside town. She said the standard $1,500 fundraising minimum will still apply for 50-km riders, because the foundation wants to make as big an impact as possible. But Van Vliet said distance is often more of a challenge than

fundraising. “We always thought the $1,500 would be a big barrier, but we’re meeting more and more people who want to do the ride but are terrified of the distance,” she said. “Every year we’re just trying to create a better rider experience.” She said team members don’t all have to complete the same route; some can do the full 100km, and others can choose to ride 50km. “Camaraderie is so important,” she said, noting that many participants are on corporate teams. “They’re using Ride the Rideau to boost staff morale and staff fitness. It just gives people a chance to train together and fundraise together and build that team.” In just three years, Ride the Rideau has become the most successful single-day cancer fundraiser in Eastern Ontario. It has raised more than $4.4 million since it began, and rid-

ers have helped fund new therapies and the opening of the Centre for Innovative Cancer Research. Last year the event raised $1.74 million for cancer research with 718 cyclists taking the scenic tour along the world heritage site. Van Vliet hopes to have 1,000 cyclists this year, as well as 350 volunteers. She said they are on target and “tracking well ahead of last year” for registrations and fundraising. She said the foundation would like to surpass their biggest fundraising amount to date, $1.82 million. Leading up the event, organizers will offer group training rides, skill sessions and bike maintenance workshops. “Now’s the time (to register),” she said. “It allows for more time to train and also for fundraising.” To register or for more information visit ridetherideau. ca.

Canoe trip launches francophone celebrations at Petrie Island Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - Exactly 400 years after Samuel Champlain’s famous trip up the Ottawa River, a group of De La Salle high school students celebrated by retracing a small part of the journey in a handmade birch bark canoe. The students paddled past Petrie Island in a canoe held together by spruce gum and constructed with the help of Christian Pilon, a Métis canoe-maker and speaker. The canoe launch was a part of the 400th anniversary celebration organized by the Franco-Ontarian Heritage and Historical Society. “Champlain was able to come so far and up to Ottawa and further because he had the help of the Algonquins that were living in the region,” said Nicole Fortier, the historical society’s president. “So we could not do this without thanking the Algonquins and the First Nations.” The French public school board funded Pilon’s visit, running the project as a part of the

aboriginal culture curriculum. He put on an assembly for all the students in the school about aboriginal culture and the canoe project, and invited students to be a part of it. Students could commit to being a part of the project all throughout the year, or come in to help for an hour or two whenever they wanted. Several students worked on the project on a daily basis for several months. “Their hands were all swollen from working with the birch bark and spruce gum,” Pilon said. “They really took it seriously, and I would hear them in the hallways, sharing what they learned with the other students.” Pilon harvested the bark from around the area, and taught the students how to stitch and assemble the canoe. “It gave them a chance to learn, and at the same time to learn that they’re indigenous from somewhere too,” he said. “From the very beginning, everyone was following nature like we do in our culture.” The canoe – which Pilon and students paddled through the water at Petrie Island during the

launch – will now stay at De La Salle high school. Grade 10 student Justine Gamache-Howard, from Orléans, who is part Algonquin, was quick to sign up for the project. She became emotional during her speech to the students, detailing the hundreds of hours she spent on the project. “It captivated me totally and it was something new that I’d never done,” she said. “I was like, ‘this is a one in a lifetime chance, and I’m not going to skip it.’ I was in there every single day working on it.” The canoe launch was only a small part of the large celebration, that lasted through the day and night at Petrie Island. Francophone artists performed and descendants of the first five families to settle in Orléans – Besserer, Major, Vézina, Duford/Gauthier, and Dupuis/ Soctt – attended a booth with presentations on the settlement of the Orléans area. “We all gathered together, and this is the result,” Fortier said. “a lot of community work, a lot of community involvement, all related to all kids of BRIER DODGE/METROLAND tradition.” Christian Pilon walks towards the water at Petrie Island on June 4. Pilon worked with

students at De La Salle high school to build the birch bark canoe which they launched in front of local French students during the francophone celebration of the anniversary of Samuel de Champlain’s passing.

Open House and Drop-in Consultation Session This open house and drop-in consultation session will provide an overview of the Western Light Rail Transit Corridor (WLRTC) study progress to date and will address concerns raised by both the public and the National Capital Commission following the April 2013 public release of the preliminary preferred alignment – Richmond Underground. Public Open House #3 Monday, June 17 Jean Pigott Place - Ottawa City Hall 110 Laurier Avenue West 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. Study Area The City of Ottawa is continuing its planning and environmental assessment study for the proposed WLRTC. The goal of this study is to identify the most effective way to build on the first phase of LRT currently under construction (Confederation Line) to bring service to Baseline Station, increase transit use and provide higher quality transit service. This study is considering alternative options and designs towards a final alignment and it will inform the City’s Transportation Master Plan. The study area stretches between Bayview and Baseline Stations and includes the area from the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway south to Carling Avenue and from the O-Train west to Lincoln Fields and Baseline Stations. Consultation Participants will have an opportunity to meet with City staff to discuss the proposed corridor design, mitigation measures and other issues arising from consultation, including effects on property values and greenspace, operation of the trains, cost and affordability, development implications and the work completed to date. Residents are encouraged to stop by City Hall at their convenience between 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. There will be no formal presentation. The study is being undertaken in accordance with the Transit Project Assessment Process as prescribed in Ontario Regulation 231/08, Transit Projects. The Project Environmental Assessment Phase will be initiated after completion of the Project Planning Phase. For those residents who cannot attend the session, the information presented at the open house will be available on ottawa.ca/westernLRT. The City will be accepting comments by email (westernLRT@ottawa.ca) and fax (613-580-2578) until June 21, 2013. R0022151698-0613

Ottawa South News EMC - Thursday, June 13, 2013

Information Session Update on the Ontario Municipal Board Appeal Against the Infill Zoning By-law Amendment Monday, June 17, 2013 7 to 8:30 p.m., Presentation at 7:30 p.m. City Hall, Champlain Room 110 Laurier Avenue West, Ottawa The purpose of the meeting is to provide an update on the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) appeal against the Infill Zoning By-law 2012-147 that was adopted by City Council on May 9, 2012, and subsequently amended through By-laws 2012-347 and 2012-348. The Infill Zoning By-law affects all residentially-zoned lands located within Wards 12, 14, 15, 17 and part of Ward 13. The OMB issued an Interim Order directing City staff to document specific attributes that, in part, assist in the creation of neighbourhood character within those areas affected specifically by Infill By-law 2012-147, as amended. Staff will provide an update to the public concerning the staff response to the OMB’s Order, including the methodology that is being used to document the prominent character of each neighbourhood, as identified as the predominant use of land along a street, as seen from that street. Note that this information session will speak solely to the OMB Interim Order and not to the zoning regulations that were adopted by Council in By-law 2012-147, and its amendments and subsequently appealed, as these matters are now before the OMB. A Planning Report will be prepared for consideration by the Planning Committee June 25, 2013, and by City Council on June 26, 2013. For further information please contact: Beth Desmarais, MCIP, RPP Planning and Growth Management City of Ottawa 110 Laurier Avenue West, Ottawa 613-580-2424, ext. 13503 E-mail: elizabeth.desmarais@ottawa.ca

Feds announce national anti-bullying campaign Canadian Red Cross program to hire 2,400 youths across Canada Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - The federal government will fund the training of 2,400 youths from across Canada to deliver anti-bullying workshops. Each youth facilitator will commit to reaching another 20 young people in their communities to help prevent bullying and discrimination. The Canadian Red Cross will receive $250,000 from the federal government to continue its youth-led Stand up to Bullying and Discrimination project. Canadian Heritage Minister James Moore announced the money for the program – which is expected to reach more than 50,000 Canadian youth – at A.Y. Jackson Secondary School in Glen Cairn on June 3 with Laureen Harper and Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley. Hubley’s late son Jamie attended A.Y. Jackson before taking his own life after being bullied for his sexual orientation, which had led to a deep depression he couldn’t overcome. “Communities across this country, including this one, have been deeply affected by tragedies related to bullying, cyberbullying and intimidation. And there are far too many tragedies,” said Moore. “If we do nothing, it will lead to the death of children … It can’t be said more plainly or more accurately than that.” Cyberbullying through social media is a reality many adults never had to face. “Our kids now face pressures that really didn’t exist when I was growing up,” said Harper, who is married to

Prime Minister Stephen Harper. “As parents it’s very hard to help our children because their experiences are so different than anything we had. “That’s very scary as a mother.” CREATE HOPE

Three youth-led forums in the Atlantic region, Ontario and British Columbia will also reach out to 150 youth to step up and help put an end to bullying. “Actions like this announcement today (are) what we need to be successful,” said Hubley. “Canadians, such as my family, have paid too high a price and (we need) meaningful progress before other families must carry the burden of losing someone special, like my boy Jamie, who only wanted a safer community for everyone. “With the help of the Red Cross and other frontline workers, we can create hope for a better day.” Hubley pledged to do “everything I can” to have at least one student from his ward receive the training, which is offered to students between the age of 13 and 17. “We cannot expect someone else to solve this issue for us. Success will take each of us doing our part,” he said. “By supporting young people to become leaders in their schools and communities through programs like this, we will create safer places and communities for everyone. Let’s join together and say it’s time to turn bullying on its head.” The funding is provided through the government’s Youth Take Charge program.

The Canadian Red Cross will receive $250,000 from the federal government to continue its youth-led Stand up to Bullying and Discrimination project. The announcement was made at A.Y. Jackson Secondary School in Kanata on June 3.

Girls Night Out raises $90,000 for hospice services Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - The seventh-annual Girls Night Out in support of hospice services was a smashing success. More than 800 women attended the sold-out event in support of Friends of Hospice Ottawa. The soiree, held at Algonquin College on May 31, raised just under $90,000, with funds still being counted on June 4. “It’s amazing, I’m just so thrilled,” said Lisa Sullivan, executive director of Friends of Hospice. “Everyone is having fun.” Women of all ages enjoyed the evening’s festivities. Firefighters escorted everyone to their tables while entertainer George Thomas had ladies dancing on chairs, leading conga lines and vying for the bragging rights of “best table.” Linda Brown, a Richmond resident, attends the event every year with the other women in her family. “We have a really good time,” said Brown. “And it’s a good cause.” AWARENESS

The funds raised during Girls Night Out – a volunteer-organized event – will support the hospice’s operating costs, which account for about $1.7 million a year.

“The awareness piece is really important,” said Sullivan, adding that without fundraisers, “We wouldn’t have the services we do.” Friends of Hospice Ottawa is a palliative care registered charity, serving residents of Kanata, StittsvilleGoulbourn, Nepean, West Carleton, Manotick and Kars. The hospice offers in-home, caregiver and bereavement support, as well as a day hospice, transportation, community education, emergency residential care, and provides information and referrals free of charge to terminally ill clients and their families. The organization recently bought Trinity Presbyterian Church on McCurdy Drive to help co-ordinate all its efforts under one roof. The sale closes in June. “We’re going to slowly start moving in,” said Sullivan. So far, around $1.6 million has been raised for the new hospice facility in south Kanata, but at least $6 million is needed to complete the project, which will include a residential wing for hospice beds. “The support we get from all of you, I know we’re going to be able to do that,” said Sullivan.

Franco-Ontarian Society proposes name for health centre Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - The OrlĂŠans Franco-Ontarian Heritage and Historical Society wants to see the new OrlĂŠans family health centre named after OrlĂŠansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ďŹ rst resident doctor, who saw patients out of his home on St. Joseph Boulevard. Ă&#x2030;mile Major travelled through the area making house calls after opening his practice in December 1925, one that remained open for 47 years. He also worked out of the Ottawa General Hospital, Saint-Vincent Hospital and the Montfort Hospital. Major studied medicine at McGill University and completed his internship in New York City, but was far from a stranger in the community. He was the great-grandson of Luc Major â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who registered the ďŹ rst ofďŹ cial plan for the village of St. Joseph â&#x20AC;&#x201C; now the St. Joseph Boulevard area. The Major family, one of the ďŹ rst in OrlĂŠans, arrived from Bytown in 1856. Having delivered many of the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s children born in the late 1920s and early â&#x20AC;&#x2122;30s, he also pulled teeth, and performed surgeries, and was known to forgive payments for down and out patients.

Ă&#x2030;mile Majorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son, Jean-Marc Major, still lives in Cumberland and is proud to be a ďŹ fth-generation OrlĂŠans resident. He said his father helped build the community, not just as a doctor, but as a justice of the peace, health ofďŹ cer, coroner, secretary of the village council, school trustee and church warden. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was not only a doctor, he was sort of a social worker,â&#x20AC;? JeanMarc said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was involved in all aspects of the new village, so I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good recognition of his contribution.â&#x20AC;? He remembers church parishioners crossing the street on Sundays to come and check in with the doctor, and his father fetching drugs from the basement because there was no pharmacy in OrlĂŠans yet. The ďŹ rst family home that his father worked out of was set to be moved to the Cumberland Heritage Village Museum, but it burned down before it could be relocated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He delivered the babies that populated the area,â&#x20AC;? said JeanMarc. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it would be proper to recognize the work that he did in this area, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good recognition of his contribution.â&#x20AC;? Louis Patry, president of the historical societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s naming proposal committee, said it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the ďŹ rst

Ottawa Needs You!

project they have campaigned to have named. Most recently, they advocated for the naming of the François Dupuis Recreation Centre. Ottawa-OrlĂŠans MPP Phil McNeely wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t aware of the naming request yet, but did remember the doctor making a house call to his own family home as a child, when his brother needed his tonsils removed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remember it well and we could smell the ether and we had to stay upstairs. It was my older brother Frank and I was about ďŹ ve and he would have been seven. It was done in the living room on the dining room table,â&#x20AC;? he wrote in an email. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is almost 70 years ago. I think they let us see the removed tonsils. I had not thought about this for years.â&#x20AC;? A spokeperson for the local health network, the Champlain LHIN, which proposed the health centre, said it was too early to determine who would have naming rights.

A new bylaw requires clothing donation bins to display information about where contributions are going and must have a working phone number.

New bylaw in effect for donation bins Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - A new bylaw came into effect to regulate clothing donation bins on June 3. Whether on public or private property, the bins must state if they are affiliated with a charity, which one it is collecting for along with the registration number, and must have a working phone number, said Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley, who first raised the issue in 2011. Bins must also state if they are collecting for a for-profit business. “If you see a box that’s overflowing or you want to call to see what exactly they’re doing with the stuff you give them, there has to be a working number,” he said. “Most importantly, they now have to have the permission of the landowner.” Before the bylaw was put into effect, donation bins were just “showing up,” he said. The Salvation Army and Neighbourhood Services are both charities approved by the city, said Hubley. “Because they’re local charities and they’re doing things to help our community.”

Hubley added that people can now make an informed decision when donating their clothes. “Now you’ll know where your stuff is going and it’s up to you what you want to do,” he said. Bylaw officers will be checking donation bins but if people notice something that isn’t in compliance with the new bylaws, they are encouraged to call 311 and report any discrepancies, said Hubley. “I would encourage people to take a look at the sign on those boxes and make sure that they comply with the bylaws.” Hubley first raised the issue about clothing bins in 2011. At that time, the Jubilee Donations bins – especially one at Jack Charron Arena – were of particular concern, Hubley said, because they are not emptied regularly and it’s not clear if Jubilee is a registered charity. Hubley called the phone number listed on the box and determined that Jubilee is a storage company. With files from Laura Mueller Ottawa South News EMC - Thursday, June 13, 2013

Remembrance Park could mark Vimy’s 100th Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - The Manotick legion wants to expand its presence in Dickinson Square. Legion past president Roy Blair and resident Ted Ross are leading the campaign to design a remembrance park north of the cenotaph, in the green space that was once the Holloway property. “It’s important to show to the veterans they’re not forgotten, and what they did is not forgotten,” Ross said. While the park is in its very early stages - no design, timeline or money has been secured - Ross and Blair said they want to complete the project by 2017, in time for Canada’s 150th birthday and the 100th anniversary of the battle of Vimy Ridge. The space is compact, but the park could include a number of features: a sidewalk leading to the cenotaph further south on Dickinson Street, heritage gardens with cuttings from local landmarks, a fountain, benches and a feature allowing children to thank veterans for their service. That could be something like a wall of handprints, a special plaque or a statue. “It’s symbolic of having a torch passed forward as well as a thank-you passed backwards,” Blair said. Expanding the cenotaph’s interlocking brick northward

is a more urgent priority, which could potentially get done later this summer when the city realigns Dickinson Street with Dickinson Circle north of Bridge Street, Ross said. Expanding the brick is important, he added, because when the square is packed for Remembrance Day some of the participants are left standing on uneven, sloping ground for hours. A sidewalk has already been secured for the site as part of the Dickinson realignment, but park designs and funding won’t be finalized in time to piggy-back on the project this summer, Ross said. He said if the sidewalk must go in this summer they will plan the park around it - but they’d like to delay the sidewalk installation if they can, so they have more creative say over where it goes. Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt said he supports the park idea in principle, but can’t comment or move forward without a full concept design. He said the sidewalk likely can’t be delayed without compromising the city’s willingness to pay for it. “If it’s done as part of the (Dickinson Street) project, that where the money is,” he said. “If it’s delayed then I’m not sure about the funding.” City funding may be difficult to secure anyway because there are so many parks already on the list, Moffatt said. Making use of city

EMMA JACKSON/METROLAND

Ross said the legion and community at large has been worried about the state of the crumbling infrastructure for some time, but it could be a complicated project if Parks Canada or Rideau Valley Conservation Authority must be involved. The project would add at least another $50,000 to the budget according to Ross, but he said it’s worth the money. “It dramatically increases the cost of the Remembrance Park to add this to it, but in my mind the city needs to deal with it sooner rather than later,” he said. “This seems like the time to do it all.” Moffatt said he didn’t know whether the abutment problem is on the city’s radar, or if it has ever been inspected for structural problems.

Manotick Legion past president Roy Blair and resident Ted Ross want to see a new Remembrance Park north of the cenotaph in Dickinson Square. grants, particularly the rural community building grant, would be a better route. Financial issues aside, Moffatt said what he’s heard of the park concept is a good fit for the property. “When I was first approached I said it was a good idea and made sense,” Moffatt said. “The city has every intention, through the Manotick Mill Quarter Community Development Committee, to look at that as a pathway link between Bridge Street and Dickinson Square.”

At the same time, the legion wants the city to fix the abutment behind the cenotaph, on the foundation of the old bridge.

COMMUNITY PARK

Ross and Blair envision a community effort on this project. While the legion is leading the charge, Ross said they hope to partner with other community and service

groups like the Manotick Culture, Parks and Recreation Association, the Manotick BIA and the Kiwanis and Lions to fundraise and recruit labour. “There’s plenty of money, we just need to pull it together,” he said, noting that Manotick residents can always be counted on for their generosity. “Whether its $100 or $100,000, it doesn’t seem to matter.” The Remembrance Park, while meant to be a place to honour service men and women, will still be a community park, Ross added. Seniors from the new residence across Bridge Street would be able to access it easily, and visitors to the square can take a moment to reflect. Even with a potential commercial development going up on the west side of Dickinson Street, those customers can enjoy the park as well. “It will mean that nothing else will develop there that will detract from our main purpose, which is the Remembrance Day ceremony,” Blair added.

Big Sky Ranch celebrates 10 years with party Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - Ten years since Big Sky Ranch opened its doors in Kemptville, the farm has helped more than 1,700 animals and countless people in the community. On Sunday, June 23, the non-profit ranch will celebrate that spirit of cooperation by coming together for a 10th anniversary party at the Rideau Carleton Raceway in south Ottawa. AnimalFest will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the raceway, located at 4837 Albion Rd. The free event will feature kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; entertainment and activities like live music from Jenna Taggart, pony rides, bouncy castles, antique cars, face painting and opportunities to meet many of the ranchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s animals. The afternoon will be followed at 5:30 p.m. with Big Sky Goes to the Races, where the grownups can feast on a buffet dinner in the racetrackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s restaurant followed by a silent auction and an evening of horse racing, Sakalauskas said. The ranch hopes to raise $10,000 in support of operational costs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want (participants) to get to know our animals a little bit better,â&#x20AC;? said Francine Sakalauskas, spokesperson for the ranch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a teaser. I hope that will help inform people that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still here, so we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get lost in the shuffle.â&#x20AC;?

Big Sky Ranch founder Andy Parent visits one of the animals on the farm. Ten years ago, Barrhaven resident Andy Parent moved his family from his suburban neighbourhood and bought a hobby farm in Kemptville. Unbeknownst to him, the Big Sky Ranch had just been born: months after he and his family moved in, animals started showing up on their doorstep. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He realized the community re-

ally needed a place for animals to go,â&#x20AC;? said Sakalauskas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really special about Andyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s journey is it all kind of happened and he just welcomed it and embraced it.â&#x20AC;? Since then, the volunteer-run, non-profit ranch has helped more than 1,700 animals live a better life, while improving human-animal relationships and allowing people to

heal their own wounds while working with the animals. In the past few years, Parent has battled his own wounds as he fights leukemia and declining health. This leaves the future of the ranch more tenuous without the guarantee of his steadfast support on the farm. But Sakalauskas believes community support will keep it going.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The ranch is going to stay and keep going as long as we have help from the community,â&#x20AC;? Sakalauskas said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the same time weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping Andy will still be with us for a long time.â&#x20AC;? It costs about $75,000 to run the ranch every year. Along with housing animals from cats and dogs to llamas, emu and even a bison - about 90 per cent of which are up for adoption - the ranch also opens its doors to its human supporters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the big goals is we want to educate people how to treat and take care of their animals,â&#x20AC;? Sakalauskas said. Throughout the year the ranch runs school programs, speaking engagements and hosts summer camps where kids can be responsible for an animal for the entire week. Youth in the corrections system carry out their community work at the ranch, and adults living with disabilities help feed the animals and clean the ranch. If some of the human volunteers have their own reasons for spending time at the ranch, so do the animals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They all have their stories of how they got there,â&#x20AC;? Sakalauskas said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of them are sad stories but we find hope in them too. We all believe in second chances here.â&#x20AC;?

Beaver Barracks gets prestigious housing nomination Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - A housing development that brought life to a moribund city block near the Nature Museum has landed on a prestigious international honour list. The Centretown Citizens Ottawa Corporation’s Beaver Barracks development was recently named an international finalist for the World Habitat Awards. The awards, which will be announced in August, were created in the 1980s by the Building and Social Housing Foundation to recognize projects that provided practical and innovative solutions to housing needs. The 254-unit Beaver Barracks occupies the land bordered by Catherine Street, Metcalfe Street, and Argyle Street, sharing a city block with the Taggart Family YMCA. Like the name suggests, the land once housed a Second World War-era training barracks for military servicemen, which the federal government sold to the former regional municipality in the early 1990s. Ray Sullivan, the CCOC’s executive director, said he’s pleased to see the recognition garnered by the de-

velopment. “It’s really great to see Beaver Barracks recognized on an international level,” he said. “Part of it is the design, and we have Barry Hobin & Associates Architects to thank for that. But, a lot of the (recognition) is from the impact on the community. It’s a mixed development designed to have a positive impact on the neighbourhood.” Consisting of two mid-rise apartment buildings, townhomes and stacked townhomes, the affordable housing development transformed “a semi-abandoned, contaminated site in a forgotten corner of Centretown,” said Sullivan, adding, “There are over 100 kids living on that site alone – it’s brought a vibrancy to the community.” The building employs a number of energy-saving “green” features, which save the organization money over the long run, especially in energy costs. Being the landlord for 1,600 subsidized units means paying many mortgages, so any money saved is a good thing. The energy-saving features will allow the CCOC to pay down the mortgage on the Beaver Barracks, which is “hefty,” according

to Sullivan. The development, which occurred in phases over several years, included funding from all levels of government. To make into the top 10 finalists, Beaver Barracks had to beat out most of the 200 projects competing for international top billing. Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes stated in a media release that the nomination is something Ottawa can be proud of. “I am thrilled to see recognition by the World Habitat Award for this fantastic example of what’s possible when government and local groups work together,” said Holmes. “It’s sustainable, it’s affordable, and it’s providing new family housing in an area where the only other houses going up are condos for singles and couples.” While Beaver Barracks has been well received by both residents and neighbours of the development, Sullivan said much more affordable housing needs to be built to sustain the current need in Ottawa. “This (development) is one step,” said Sullivan. “We’re waiting to see what the next steps will be.”

Meet Freckles, (A118662). She is a patient and loving three-year-old, spayed female, torbi and white, Domstic Shorthair cat waiting for her forever home. While Freckles has been at the shelter since December 31, 2012, she is still hopeful that she will grab a special someone’s attention. Freckles spent some time in Foster Care and got along great with the gentle cat she shared a house with, but would rather not have to live with a dog. This special girl is looking for

a warm, snuggly lap to curl into for some love and attention. Freckles would love an owner who knows that she has an affinity for wand toys and toys on strings, what would be even better is if you would take some time to play with her daily! Meet Finnegan (A150704), a very special 13-year-old, neteured male, brown tabby, Domestic Shorthair cat who is in foster care due to recurrent upper respiratory tract infection while here at our shelter.

his owner on November 2, 2012 and is ready to find his permanent family. He is a lovely gentleman with great house manners. You can often find him spending time with people, curled next to them on the couch, or snoozing in a sunbeam. Finnegan takes some time to warm up to people, but with time has started to figure out that humans make for great friends, as they usually give into his charm and offer ear scratches. Finnegan has even learned that the foster family’s cat and dog are okay too! Finnegan is a “Special Needs” adoption as there is the slight possibility that he will suffer from a chronic low grade cold that may require ongoing medical management. We encourage you to discuss Finnegan’s special needs with your family veterinarian so that together you can help him live a happy, healthy life.

My name is Nikou and I am a 4lb 5oz, 13 year old Abyssinian. I was adopted from the Cornwall SPCA at one year old and live very happily in Ottawa. I am very personable, love everyone who comes to the house, and run when I hear the doorbell to greet guests. Everyone who visits wants to take me to their house but of course my family will not allow it. The only thing I do not greet is other cats or dogs, on my property.

Do you know where your cat is? job; spread diseases; kill wildlife; and in some cases, inflict wounds on people and other animals. Is this freedom? Outdoor cats are not free. They fight a daily battle for survival against exposure to the elements, accidents, disease, poison, abuse and fights with other animals, theft or loss. On average an outdoor cat lives approximately three years while the lifespan of a cat that has been kept indoors (and supervised while outdoors) is approximately 15 years. The OHS recommends that you keep your feline companion on a harness or under supervision when outside. Have a microchip implanted in your animal as a precaution against loss. A microchip will supply your pet with identification that lasts a lifetime. Harness training is a safe way to allow your cat to experience the pleasures of the great outdoors. To learn more about how to harness train your cat, visit the Companion Animal Tips section on our website, www.ottawahumane.ca. Ensure your cat’s safety. Your feline companion and your neighbours will thank you for your effort!

What may be desired is not necessarily the safest... Even though cats may love to have the freedom of running around outside, so too would dogs whose freedom we strictly control. In fact, small children would relish the opportunity to roam freely all day, with little or no regard for their safety. In today’s world this freedom is just not possible. Society has established many rules for our protection. We wouldn’t think of allowing our small children to go outside alone where they are exposed to many dangers, yet many cat owners readily open the door for feline friends to go out unsupervised not knowing if they will return the same day, the next day, or ever. Are you a good neighbour? Another factor to consider, besides your cat’s safety, is your cat’s effect on the environment and the nuisance he or she might unwittingly create for neighbours. Cat fights are noisy and offensive; unneutered cats breed indiscriminately; their spraying and feces are pollutants; they get into garbage; ruin gardens; cause car accidents; cause damage to a car’s paint

Fans treated to Canada vs. Fiji match at Twin Elm Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - Fans packed Twin Elm Rugby Park on June 5 to see the Canadian rugby team take on Fiji. Rugby fans, and players competing in the high school boys provincial rugby championships, packed the stands to see the Pacific Cup match. And despite the massive size of the Fijian players, the Canadians pulled out a win in front of the hometown crowd, with a small 20-18 margin. Canadian team captain Phil Mack said the defence had to be prepared for Fiji to score from any point in the field because of their explosive power. But at the end of the day, the Canadians were more organized as a team on the field, prompting Fiji head coach Inoke Male to say his team needed to be more prepared next time. “We knew Fiji was going

to play a wide open game and we needed to get our defence right to beat them,” Mack said. “We’ve done a lot of work as a team ... it paid off.” Rugby clubs in Ottawa had offered discount and group rugby tickets to their players, who were vocal throughout the game, leaving no doubt which was the home team. “When we really get tired out there and the crowd amps it, it just really gives us that extra boost,” Mack said. “It’s something in Canada we’re not really used to.” It was the first time ever that Canada had beat Fiji at home. Rugby fans were happy to see Ottawa included on a stop, as it’s not often they get to see this level of 15-A-side rugby. The Barrhaven Scottish RFC has their 10 and under players do a rugby demonstration game at halftime. The under-10 players use flags like flag football instead of tackling.

Carleton University player Mandy Musse said that games of this level help promote the sport in Ottawa and make people ask questions about both the rules, and how to get involved. “It’s amazing. I think it attracts people to the sport and creates a big buzz for Ottawa. It helps a lot,” said Musse, who also plays club level rugby in Ottawa. Prior to the game, the family of late Barrhaven Scottish player Rowan Stringer was welcomed. A moment of silence was held for the John McCrae teen, who died this spring following a head injury sustained in a rugby game. Minister of Sport Bal Gosal and Rugby Canada officials presented the Stringer family with a signed Canada jersey. The Canadian team were scheduled to play their next games in Kingston and Ireland.

Girls to take confidence, selfesteem home from camp Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - Along with the crafts and keepsakes kids always take home from camp, an Osgoode day camp will also help girls bring back a renewed sense of self-confidence. The So Glad 2 Be Me camp is coming to the Osgoode Youth Association July 2 to 5 for kids aged eight to 12 years old. Jen Charbonneau, creator of the camp, will attempt to teach her participants how to love themselves and others for who they are. “It’s trying to help them get a grasp on how they’re unique, how they’re special, how they’re important, ... and helping them realize they don’t have to be the same as everyone else,” Charbonneau said. “Their real friends are going to be the ones who don’t care what outfit you have on.” The camp starts Tuesday, July 2 and runs until Friday, July 5. Much like any camp, the girls will play games, make crafts and take part in team activities, but themes will focus on improving self-esteem, promoting a healthy body image and building the capacity to deal with every-day drama. “The girls feel really empowered at the end of the week,” Charbonneau said. The eating disorder consultant and facilitator said society sends a clear message to girls about how they should look - and then bases their value on it. “Our culture is just really sending a

negative message that your value is attached to your appearance,” she said, pointing to popular toys like Barbie and Bratz dolls. “They’re a perfect example of a subliminal message that this is how you have to look.” And the corporations aren’t changing any time soon. “For as many people that are out there trying to squash that myth (that you should look a certain way), there’s equally more powerful companies out there trying to promote it. It’s an uphill battle,” she said. Charbonneau said she was inspired recently when so many teenagers and young adults spoke out against popular clothing brand Abercrombie and Fitch, whose owner stated publicly that his clothes are only meant to be worn by “the cool kids.” The brand refuses to make women’s clothing beyond size large in shirts and size 10 in pants. Charbonneau said she was pleased to see such a harmful message rejected by the very people it was targeting. “There was just an explosion; it really had a negative impact on his brand.” She hopes her camp can instill come of that confidence into her campers. “I want these young girls to tie their self-worth to what their character is like, what they’re personalities are like, the qualities that make them special and important,” she said. “Their value is not tied to their appearance.” The camp costs $250 for the week. To register by the June 25 deadline, contact Charbonneau at 613-6239553 or jen@ soglad2beme.com.

Gynecologist to join Manotick clinic team Health centre to expand hours, services in August Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - A new family doctor at the Kingsway Health Centre will bring muchneeded gynecology and obstetrics expertise for Manotick residents. On August 1, Dr. Iryna Yeuchyk will join the clinic as a family physician with special training in ob-gyn procedures. While she will accept male and female patients, she will be able to offer female patients a range of gynecological services. “Our plan is to set up a gynecology clinic at the health centre where I will offer patients procedures like implantable contraception, biopsies, and abnormal pap smear colposcopies,” said Yeuchyk. She will also offer pre-natal care until the end of the patient’s second trimester and then share patient care with a practicing ob-gyn doctor. Right now, female patients in Manotick don’t have much access to doctors with gynecology training. Ten of 12 doctors at the Manotick Medical Centre just outside the village are female, but none of them have special training in gynecology. Anything beyond basic procedures is referred to a specialist outside Manotick, ac-

cording to the office manager. Dr. Aly Abdulla, who runs the Kingsway Health Centre on Ann Street, said women will appreciate having an experienced gynecologist in town. “The closest place is Greenbank (medical centre) or the Riverside South hospital. All of these are far away,” Abdulla said. “Women don’t like to go to male doctors for this stuff. Now we have someone who can do unusual gynecological procedures.” FAMILIAR FACE

Some patients will remember Yeuchyk from her training at Kingsway between 2004 and 2006. Yeuchyk came to Ottawa in 2002 from her home country of Belarus, where she studied medicine and completed her gynecology residency. In 2004, Abdulla hired Yeuchyk as a physician’s assistant while she was updating her qualifications to practice medicine in Canada. In 2006, Yeuchyk left Ottawa for upstate New York, where she completed her family physician residency. She now runs a large practice in Massachusetts, where she offers pre-natal care, obstetrics and delivers her patients’ babies. Yeuchyk said she and her family decided to return to Canada because her husband missed his career as a French professor at the University of Ottawa. “When I had to go to New York to do my residency program, he came with me because

SUBMITTED

Dr. Iryna Yeuchyk will join the Kingsway Health Centre team on Aug. 1.

“I’m excited that my skills will be in great need there,” she said. “I have good memories of Dr. Abdulla’s clinic. I really respect him a lot and it will be a great pleasure to work with him.” Bringing a third doctor into the clinic means Kingsway can expand its hours greatly, Abdulla said. Starting Aug. 1, the clinic will be open Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. The clinic may also open on select Saturdays, depending on demand. That’s a far cry from the clinic’s current three-day schedule with limited evening hours. “There are a lot of new people coming in, families with children, and their needs are high,” Abdulla said. Families most often need acute care for minor injuries that happen outside normal business hours, he added. “We need someone there at those hours so they can get their timely care when they need it.” Abdulla said the ultimate goal is to provide a regular walk-in clinic in the heart of Manotick, and, someday, have access to urgent care services seven days a week.

we had small children at the time and he decided family’s more important,” Yeuchyk said. “He quit his job and helped to raise the children when I was working day and night.” But now, with an offer to return to the university, the family has decided to head back to Ottawa where both parents can work.
