News - Gangs may be on the rise in the city, but residents shouldn’t be alarmed. The Ottawa police Direct Action Response Team paid a visit to the Hunt Club Park Community Association’s meeting at the Conroy Road Public Works facility on June 25. When asked by a resident if gang activity was growing, Sgt. Marco Dinardo said he believed it was, but reassured those in attendance police had cleaned up some trouble spots in the past, such as Russell and Walkley roads. “It takes a whole community to take back the city streets,” Sgt. Mark MacMillan said. DART monitors gang activity and educates the public about gangs within the city. Members of the squad also come up with strategies to prevent criminal activity. DART works alongside members of the Ottawa police guns and gangs unit. “Whenever there is an area that has problems with gangs, we will go in as fast as we can to try and clean it up,” MacMillan said. Several residents asked about which communities had gang activity. MacMillan said while activity can occur throughout Ottawa, it’s not easy to pinpoint the exact location of a group as they tend to spread out into subgroups.

Fire breaks out at fibreglass plant on Belgreen Sabine Gibbins sabine.gibbins@metroland.com

News - Ottawa firefighters spent a day putting out an industrial blaze at a fibreglass warehouse in the city’s south end last week. The fire broke out in a stack of eightmetre high fibreglass bales at the Certain Teed Insulation warehouse, located at 3965 Belgreen Dr., just before 8 p.m., on June 25.

“The bales were four-feet long, 18 inches wide, and four inches thick, and they were wrapped in plastic, so when plastic burns, it burns off a lot of heat,” said Ottawa fire department spokesperson Marc Messier. Firefighters doused hot spots for nearly 24 hours before the area was deemed safe. Fifteen employees escaped unharmed. The industrial facility has had five

fires over the course of three years, something not uncommon for an industrial facility, said Messier. “It’s the type of facility where we just have to expect this to happen,” said Messier. This particular fire did not occur in the manufacturing plant as it had previously. It is not uncommon either for firefighters to be continuously called to this facility considering the amount of

On March 15, 2010, an overheated bearing caused a small fire in a pipe, creating a lot of smoke, but affecting no one. On Sept. 5, 2010, a forming hood fire shut down one production line, and on Dec. 8, 2010, a fibreglass furnace started leaking hot, molten glass, which can reach temperatures as high as 1600 degrees C. The leak, however, did not cause a fire. An unexplained gas explosion in the production area caused an evacuation of the 130-employee facilty on June 2, 2011. The Ottawa fire department’s prevention team had issued an order forbidding production from starting again until the inspection and letters of compliance were provided by agencies and safety authories. On June 9, employees returned to work. When the plant is closed, the company must maintain a 24-hour

fire watch patrol on site. The latest fire was in the plant’s ductwork, which then spread to a fan and the emissions stack and caused extensive damage to the area’s infrastructure. No one was hurt in any of the incidents, according to the fire department. As no one was injured in the fires, CertainTeed Insulation is not required to report small fires and other incidents to the Ministry of Labour, according to ministry spokesperson Matt Blajer in a previous interview with the Ottawa South News. Messier said at the time the fire department had no concerns about health and safety at the plant. “They meet all their requirements that the fire department requires of them, they’ve got everything in place such as a fire escape plan. As far as we’re concerned, for fire-related incidents, everything is in place,� he said. Calls to CertainTeed were not returned as of press time.

Tournament to raise funds for footwear Sabine Gibbins sabine.gibbins@metroland.com

News – Shannon Blaney remembers the first girl she put a pair of shoes on. She was wearing a sandal three sizes too small. “Her face just lit up when I put on a running shoe that fit,” she said. “She hugged me and asked if they were for her to keep. It was a very emotional moment.” Blaney is part of an Ottawa fundraiser which will offer children some sole support this month. The south Ottawa resident is spearheading a golf tournament in support of Friendly Feet, an initiative she started in 2011 after she heard of a number of children who did not have proper fitting footwear. The tournament is scheduled to take place, rain or shine, on July 25

at The Meadows Golf and Country Club. This is the third year Blaney and the community will be raising funds for the organization, which delivered 500 pairs of shoes to Ottawa children during its first year, and raised $900 as part of a silent auction fundraiser the second year. “Since more people are aware of Friendly Feet, I get ongoing shoe drop offs throughout the year, so this year decided not to do a big shoe drive, but instead have a golf tournament,” she explained. Perhaps the best part for Blaney is when it comes to actually purchasing the shoes for the children, knowing they have likely not had anything new in their life. “In the fall, we will be in contact with the schools to find out what children need shoes,” he said. “The feeling is really indescrib-

able. Having shoes that are too small or are full of holes is very uncomfortable for children, they cannot focus on learning or playing if they are in discomfort.” “If by putting them in a shoe or boot that fits them can change their life for the better if even for a few months, all the work involved is so worth it.” “I have had many parents so grateful since they really cannot afford to get shoes for their children.” The tournament includes 18 holes of golf, dinner, and door prizes. Friendly Feet are now accepting all kinds of children’s footwear, from running shoes to rain boots to sandals, sizes 10 to 6. Cash donations can be sent via money transfer to friendlyfeetfundraiser@gmail.com. For more information, please go to www.friendlyfeet.ca.

News - It’s better to scrap a broken policy that lets developers pay their way out of parking requirements than try to fix it, the city’s planning committee decided. The policy was ditched with little fanfare during a June 25 meeting, but one citizen who spoke to the committee said community associations have a deep interest in the issue and would have rather seen a proposal to fix the policy. Daniel Mullaly from the Centretown Citizens Community Association said if the process is broken, the city should fix it. “This policy has been mismanaged for an extended period of time,” he said. The CCCA and other community associations in Hintonburg, Westboro, Old Ottawa South and the Glebe discussed the need to a comprehensive parking strategy for the city, Mullaly said. Planning committee chairman Peter Hume, councillor for Alta Vista Ward, insisted the change doesn’t mean people will have a “free pass” to avoid providing parking. The old policy required property owners and developers to pay a fee in exchange for a reduction in the parking they are required to provide in cases where there are restraints on the owner’s ability to provide parking. It’s only supposed to be used in cases where it is “clearly demonstrated” that the requirements would result in an over-supply of parking. The city would ostensibly use the money to build public parking facilities, but the report notes the amount of money collected will likely never be enough to replace the total number of spaces in the communities where they are

needed. In fact, a rule that the fee could be waived for community housing developments has been extended to all applicants who make a case to planning committee that providing parking will cause them “undo hardship.” The new process will require relief from parking requirements to be sought through a rezoning or minor variance request. Planning manager John Smit said those options are more robust because they require more scrutiny and they can also be appealed – something the current policy lacks. Mullaly said community groups have been waiting for improvements to cash-in-lieu of parking for five years, but were none the wiser when the report was quietly added to the planning committee’s agenda with no prior community consultation. The remaining $3.7 million in the cash-in-lieu of parking fund will likely be used to build an $8-million parking garage in the Glebe and development or redevelopment of smaller on- and off-street parking facilities. There is still the possibility the city could create localized cash-in-lieu of parking bylaws if a local parking study recommends it. The city has used the money to provide parking at the adult high school on Preston Street, to create a taxi stand on Rideau Street, to replace some on- and off-street parking facilities and to fund studies on parking management for south Ottawa and Westboro and a tour bus strategy. It costs about $7,000 to build an on-street parking space, $25,000 per space to build a parking structure and about $40,000 per space to create parking in an underground garage.

Of the 15 to 19 known gangs in the Ottawa area, there are approximately 400 members associated with them. One of the groups, the Crips, originated in Ottawa’s south end, and now operates a series of subgroups across the city. MacMillan said DART has two teams of investigators that try to divert any dangerous activity in a neighbourhood, such as criminal possession and trafficking of firearms. Most members are young adults, the majority of whom have had multiple run-ins with the police over the years. “We know all the gangs – that’s part of our responsibility with the guns and gangs unit,” said MacMillan.

If we are trying to suppress and curb gang-related violence in the community, it’s not done by us alone SGT. MARK MACMILLAN

Dinardo said young people join gangs for socio-economic reasons as well as for the opportunity to be a part of a group. “A lot of the times, they’re from broken homes,” said MacMillan. They also have low self-esteem, he said. Gangs are a complex issue, said police Chief Charles Bordeleau in a statement. “They involve at-risk youth and men and women in organized crime groups. We know that a multifaceted solution that involves the entire community is the answer. To that end, we as a community need to address the broader social factors at play.” “Effective anti-gang efforts begin with partnerships among parents, schools, law enforcement, religious institutions, community organizations, businesses and youth. And to successfully address the gang phenomenon, we need to develop a comprehensive gang strategy, involving several components: early identification of at risk individuals, education, prevention, diversion, suppression, exit strategies and community involvement.” In September 2000, Ottawa police began to see evidence of the re-emergence of gangs and gang activity. Police were reporting more serious violence, with guns and drugs becoming more prominent. When it comes to the definition of a gang, said MacMillan, there has been much change over the years. Symbols and common names spray painted on facilities or structures are not spotted around the community as much,

Sgt. Marco Dinardo of the Ottawa police DART unit told residents at a meeting last week that gangs attract members of the community from similar cultural and ethnic backgrounds. as gangs are becoming smarter when it comes to evading police. “You don’t see too much of that anymore, it’s not like what we used to, but it’s still there,” he said. He urged the community to continue reporting any suspicious behaviour in their community. “If we are trying to suppress and curb gang-related violence in the community, it’s not done by us alone,” said MacMillan. “It’s a community issue.” He told residents they need not be overly alarmed about gangs, but to keep an eye out for each other, as gang-related activity affects everyone. Anyone with information on guns or gang issues in their neighbourhoods can call DART at 613-236-1222, ext. 4410.

News - Michael Palin may be a comedy icon for people over 40 or 50, but he’s a virtual unknown among today’s teens, unless they have a thirst for travel documentaries. The former Python dropped in on Grade 7 geography students at Longfields-Davidson Heights Secondary School on June 26, where the kids had only a vague idea about the day’s keynote speaker. As they awaited his arrival, one student said they know Palin “travels a lot” and another said he’s “meant to be funny.” It shouldn’t be a surprise, given his knack for entertaining, that Palin connected with the kids. All it took was a slide show of the places he’s been and stories about eating maggots and camel liver and vomiting in the desert. The silly walk confirmed his comedy chops with the young crowd. Palin’s slideshow featured photos from his 25 years spent filming travel documentaries, starting with Around the World in 80 Days. The landscapes and unusual people captured the students’ attention and also related to Python’s inescapable legacy; Palin told a story about singing The Lumberjack Song to a man in Bhutan. In Pakistan he watched bull racing, which he said “has no point to it but it’s jolly good fun.” A photo of Palin washing an elephant proved popular, and animals came up during a question-and-answer session with the kids. Palin said the most dangerous things he’s dealt with while travelling are “humans, not animals,” although he was once scratched by a puma. Palin paced across a giant map unrolled across the floor of a gymnasium as he answered questions. The

weirdest place he’s visited: a Tunisian community where people live in caves. He described breaking a rib while whitewater rafting on the Zambezi River in Africa. He admitted to eating maggots as well as some camel liver that didn’t agree with him and quickly came back up; maybe not a ringing endorsement of world travel but an adventure nonetheless. GOLD MEDAL

Palin’s stop in Ottawa came a day before he was to receive the Royal Canadian Geographic Society’s gold medal for his contribution to geographical literacy. Certainly his travel shows have been seen by millions and have probably inspired many of those viewers to see more of this planet. Palin said his global travels have delivered a dose of humility. “People know a lot more than I do,” he said. “I’ve been to some of the poorest parts of the world, and seeing how people live and raise their children; it’s quite inspiring. “The most hospitable people are very often the poorest people.” Palin said he dreamed of being an explorer as a child and was lucky to receive an offer from the BBC to host Around the World in 80 Days back in the 1980s. The series’ popularity prompted further trips and shows. He encouraged the students to see the world too. “Go out there,” Palin said. “Travel the world. Understand it.” His stop in Barrhaven came about because he asked to meet children during his Canadian visit and the geographic society’s communications manager lives next door to LDHSS teacher Larisa Deme. Deme said the school’s principal jumped at the chance to have Palin speak to students.

Splash pad delayed due to weather SABINE GIBBINS sabine.gibbins@metroland.com

News – A splash pad in Fairlea Park will be ready to use just as summer heats up. Preparation began in May for the ward’s second splash pad, but the councillor for the area notes a few hiccups have caused the project to have a later construction start date. Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans says overall, Mother Nature has not been kind with her ongoing momentum of less than ideal weather required for successful con-

Diane Deans struction of the splash pad. “The work is a little behind

schedule, but it will be finished in time for the end of July,� she said. Deans said the concrete needs to set for about a week after it’s poured, with the weather cooperating. “The concrete can’t be poured in when it’s raining, and needs to have a full week to actually set in,� Deans said. The splash pad equipment is arriving from British Columbia. Deans thanked the community for helping to bring a splash pad to Fairlea Park. “This is something the com-

munity has been looking forward to for a while,� she said. “They’ve been very instrumental in securing the funding for the project. It’s something I am very proud of.� Construction of a splash pad typically includes hooking up drainage and electrical services, installation of the water spray features, pouring of the concrete and landscaping. The splash pad equipment is arriving from Vancouver, BC. In the meantime, youngsters can enjoy a cool moment under the splash pad at Heatherington Park.

News - Townhomes planned for Chapel Hill were left in limbo after a planning committee meeting on June 25. Thanks to prompting from Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess, committee members voted to restrict buildings along La Chapelle Street to three-storey single-family homes. The committee was also set to vote on a controversial plan to allow stacked townhomes of up to 12 metres high on the remainder of the former Roger Bergeron and Sons property, but councillors voted instead to throw out the rezoning recommendation without a decision. Coun. Katherine Hobbs, a member of the committee, initially voted against approving the rezoning recommendation from city staff. In order to finalize the committee’s decision to reject the rezoning, councillors had to vote again to reject that recommendation, but Hobbs changed her vote. She said she mistakenly voted against the staff recommendation to allow the stacked townhomes and wanted to reverse her vote. That means it will have to come back and be dealt with at a

city council meeting on July 17. A councillor will have to move a motion to ask city council to consider rezoning the balance of the property for 2.5-storey stacked townhomes. Before the complicated vote, Bloess and representatives for the developer, Domicile, met to try to hash out an eleventh-hour compromise. Those efforts were unsuccessful. “In this case, I have failed ‌ We have not been able to achieve a consensus here,â€? he said, adding that his motion to restrict buildings to single-family homes facing La Chapelle was an effort to work towards some consensus. That move was met with some thanks from residents who lined up to speak to the committee. They were concerned that the density of a stacked-townhome development would not match the character of the surrounding neighbourhood. Speakers at planning committee emphasized the singlefamily homes in the community, but the staff report to planning committee indicates there are two- and three-storey homes across from the vacant site, on OrlĂŠans Boulevard. “The city is imposing a one size fits all standard by applying

an urban standard to a suburban community,� said AndrÊ Thivierge, co-chairman of the Chapel Hill residents’ committee. Thivierge said the community is well aware of the development potential for the land and they see Domicile as a highquality developer whose project has an opportunity to enhance the neighbourhood. But his main frustration is the perception that businesses that are out to make a profit will get to decide what’s best for a community. Miguel Tremblay, a planner from FoTenn Planning and Urban Design who represents Domicile, said the change to single homes along La Chapelle would

“erode� the good design of the entire proposal. He was backed up by Domicile’s planning lawyer, Alan Cohen, who noted the irony of the rezoning being considered on the same day the committee tabled the draft update to its Official Plan, which stipulates the city must grow “up, not out� to avoid sprawl. Bloess agreed that the city sends a mixed message if it emphasizes urban intensification in its master policies but doesn’t back them up with zoning to ensure that type of development happens. Other neighbours, including Denise Rousseau, were concerned about things like traffic, garbage and green space.

Cycling, pedestrian pathways to link routes Sabine Gibbins sabine.gibbins@metroland.com

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; When Carol Darcy thinks of Ottawa, she envisions cycling in every corner of the city. So the south Ottawa resident was pleased to hear about a new pedesitraan and cycling link which will run right beside the Aviation Parkway. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great idea,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I cycle all the time, back and forth from work, to and from appointments, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great lifestyle. The more people you have on safe cycling paths, the better. The city needs more of this type of infrastructure/â&#x20AC;? An open house was held on June 24 at the Hunt Club-Roverside Community Centre to showcase what the pedestrian and cycling pathway from Walkley Road to Brookfield Road will look like. Work is currently underway, said River Ward coun. Maria McRae, who hosted what she highlighted a successful open house alongside the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s design and consultation branch that evening. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We got very positive feedback from people who live in other wards and people from River ward,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very exciting to see how we are continuing to invest in the incredible piece of infrastructure.â&#x20AC;?

She gave kudos to deputy city manager Nancy Schepers, who, she said, has supported her from the beginning on the project. The Hunt Club to Walkley pedestrian and cycling pathway extension was done in a piece-meal fashion, she said, in 2010. This

was one of the first projects McRae worked on when she was elected into office. The pedestrian and cycling pathways project is part of the Sawmill Creek Constructed Wetlands, which officially opened in September 2007. This stormwater management facility is over two kilometers long and serves a catchment area of 1,418 hectares. It is designed to collect and treat stormwater runoff from three main sources: Sawmill Creek, Cahill Creek and the Plante Drive storm sewer, before it flows into the Rideau River.

BRIDGING COMMUNITIES Ward 22 Update

Steve Desroches Deputy Mayor Councillor, Gloucester-South Nepean KOREA WEEK IN OTTAWA 2013 marks the 60th Anniversary of the end of the Korean War and the 50th Anniversary of diplomatic relations between Canada and South Korea. The City of Ottawa recently proclaimed June 25 to July 1, 2013 as “Korea Week” in Ottawa to commemorate and honour the Veterans of the Korean War. I am pleased to announce that after being submitted to the commemorative naming process, I worked with community leaders to name a new park in Ward 22 ‘Gus Este Park’ in honour of local Korean War Veteran Gus Este. I feel this is a special way to honour these veterans and commemorate Mr. Este in recognition of his lifetime of service to both Canada and the Ottawa community. I would like to thank the Royal Canadian Legion and Jason Kelly for their support.

NEW O-TRAINS ARRIVE IN OTTAWA I was pleased to see the new O-trains arrive in Ottawa this past week. As you may know, the O-Train service is currently undergoing a major expansion. The upgrades include the addition of two passing tracks, signal upgrades, station modifications and Walkley Yard upgrades. When the upgrades are completed, the O-Train service will improve from every fifteen minutes to approximately every eight minutes in 2014 when the new trains are put into service.

OTTAWA LOCAL IMMIGRATION PARTNERSHIP FORUM It was my pleasure to represent the City of Ottawa as Deputy Mayor at the 2nd Annual Forum for the Ottawa Local Immigration Partnership (OLIP). Immigration is key to Ottawa’s prosperity and vitality and without immigration, Ottawa cannot sustain the population and labour force growth needed for our economic, social and cultural sustainability.

SABINE GIBBINS sabine.gibbins@metroland.com

Since its creation, OLIP has been working tirelessly with numerous key local institutions to develop the Ottawa Immigration Strategy, which aims to improve local capacity to attract, welcome and integrate immigrants to our city and, in doing so, contribute to the prosperity, vibrancy and exclusivity of our community. Immigration is a key factor in Ottawa’s future prosperity and success. All three levels of government and local stakeholders know that if Ottawa is to be successful in enhancing its economic, social and cultural vitality, we must plan at the local level to attract, retain and integrate immigrants. I extend my sincere congratulations and appreciation to the Ottawa Local Immigration Partnership Council for their work in the community.

RIVERSIDE SOUTH CANADA DAY I would like to thank all residents who came out to enjoy the Riverside South Canada Day festivities this past weekend. The event was once again a great success. I would also like to thank the Riverside South Community Association, volunteers, and sponsors for organizing this community event for the enjoyment of all residents.

I would like to remind drivers to be cautious on the road with the added volume of children in the community. I know that speeding is a serious concern for many residents in our neighbourhood and I would like to remind drivers to please slow down when driving in your neighbourhood. Thank you for your cooperation.

News – On your mark, get set – brains! Back for its 20th anniversary edition, Rattle Me Bones will look a little differently this year. The Ottawa Hospital’s iconic road race, to take place at the General Campus on Oct. 27, features a 10 kilometre Wishbone, five kilometre Funnybone, two kilometre TBone, and one kilometre Jigglebone races. The event itself takes place on the trails behind the campus, and was officially launched on June 26. Those who are brave enough to take on the five kilometre Zombie Crossbone, however, will find themselves running for their lives in an off-road setting just north of the hospital’s grounds. All entrants will have something zombies want – not brains, as the undead usually pursue, but flags. During the past 19 years, Rattle Me Bones has raised $1,026,615 in support of The Ottawa Hospital. Proceeds from this year’s races will go towards bone cancer research. “This event may be fun, but it raises some serious funds for a very serious cause,” said Kent Woodhall, race director and senior clinical director for perioperative and regional cancer programs at The Ottawa Hospital. Every year, more than 2,000 people participate in Rattle Me Bones, which has raised more than $1 million in 19 years in support of The Ottawa Hospital. This year’s race will be held in support of bone cancer research. Organizers are hoping to raise a record total this year. “These funds can potentially help re-

Local acts make Bluesfest great

O

ttawa is spoiled for festivals each summer. Dragon Boats hit the waters of Mooneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bay. Jazz drifts through down-

town. Countless other events draw people each weekend, with Canada Day leading the way. On LeBreton Flats, blues â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and an amalgam of other sounds â&#x20AC;&#x201C; draws thousands of Ottawans and visitors to this city. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re lucky to live in a city that hosts the second largest blues festival in North America (Chicago holds top spot). While the headline acts at Bluesfest garner the most attention, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s local acts that make up the majority of the entertainment. They may play earlier in the day than B.B. King or the Tragically Hip, but every one of the local musicians is really what makes Bluesfest work. Without the input of Ottawa artists, Bluesfest couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fill multiple stages for the festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10 days. The payoffs from this commitment to the local community are immeasurable. Not only does Ottawa get an economic boost as thousands of visitors arrive to take in the shows, the

local musicians get a chance to share their material with large crowds of music fans. For the Ottawa entertainers, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the added bonus of getting to open a stage for national and international stars they might never have the chance to meet at any other time. The RBC Ottawa Bluesfest always draws a few grumbles for straying from its blues roots, but the crowds that arrive each year suggest the lineups meet with mass approval. The growing list of genres that can be heard each year also means more and more local acts can try to snag an invitation to play. And every note â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in some way â&#x20AC;&#x201C; can be traced back to the blues, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the root of almost every North American musical style. And because Bluesfest draws such large crowds, ticket prices can often be much more affordable than an arena show by one headlining act. Once you have a ticket for that famous act, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also able to arrive earlier or stay later to take in everything the music fest has to offer. Including all those local acts. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never spent a lazy Saturday or Sunday wandering between six musical stages, taking in unknown acts and finding real gems, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been missing out. Grab your lawn chair and sunscreen. And have fun right here in Ottawa.

Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll miss having our own man in Toronto

T

oo bad Dalton McGuinty had to leave politics in such an awkward way because he actually was a pretty good premier until things started to go a bit weird toward the end. It would be an exaggeration to say he will be impossible to replace, because his replacement seems to be doing all right so far. But in one respect, Kathleen Wynne cannot replace McGuinty. She is not from Ottawa. McGuinty is. That meant that for the 10 years McGuinty was premier we had a premier who knew that Ottawa existed. Knowing that Ottawa exists is not as easy as you might think. The government of Ontario resides in Toronto and Toronto is a needy place. Amplified by Torontoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rather noisy media, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needs are all too evident. To remember that Ottawa exists, it helps to be from here and come back on weekends. On those visits, a premier can leave behind Torontoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s traffic, its urban sprawl, its overcrowded schools and understaffed hospitals and notice our traffic, our urban sprawl, our overcrowded schools and our understaffed hospitals. No matter what is going on in the 416, the premier will be reminded of the Queensway,

and it began to appear that the Rideau Carleton Raceway might in fact survive. But being from Toronto, Wynne gets overexposed to all that Toronto stuff. Lately she has been musing about improving the provincial governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relationship with the city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve prided myself and ourselves on being able to rebuild that relationship,â&#x20AC;? Wynne said, as reported by the Globe and Mail. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It pains me that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not as good as it maybe has been, and I hope that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to rebuild those relationships.â&#x20AC;? This can hardly be seen as good news. Torontoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s municipal leadership being what it is, rebuilding those relationships is going to take most of the time the premier has available. It is also going to take a lot of money, given the rather expensive list of things Toronto needs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; such as subways. And while that is going on, the rebuilding process with Toronto, what happens to Carling Avenue and the Queensway and OC Transpo? Not to mention light rail, which it sometimes seems we will never get. Would it help if Ottawa had a more colourful mayor? Not meaning any disrespect to Jim Watson, but his demeanour does not demand attention, it does not cry out to the provincial government that if Ottawa does not get what

it wants he will hold his breath until it does. Other Ontario cities have mayors that. So maybe Watson needs to develop a few rough edges, become colourful, learn how not to keep his temper in check. As soon as he does that, he becomes a problem and a problem needs to be solved. Right now, Watson is not a problem for Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Park. That was OK when an Ottawa guy was premier. But now, Watson not being a problem means Ottawa is not a priority. Can Jim Watson learn how to become a problem? Maybe. You should never underestimate a politician.

it.

And there are some, like me, who always do exactly the opposite of what we’re told. I like to think of it as a healthy disrespect for authority. It’s the main reason I went to journalism school. In fact, I believe queries about this should be on the journalism school application forms: “Do you have a healthy disrespect for authority?” “No? You may be applying for the wrong program.” “Yes? Automatic entry with full scholarship.” So much do I hate to be told what I “should” do that I even reject the little voice of authority in my own head. I’m sure I’m not alone in this. In fact, I realized recently that others among you must have this handicap. Why else are we not all sipping Evian hourly, eating loads of veggies, exercising daily and basically just doing all the things we’re told we

Capital Muse “should” do to lead healthy lives? Because rules are made to be broken. And I don’t know about you, but when that voice of authority speaks in my head, I just crave potato chips and dry rosé. I started my own fitness routine in early April. After working like a dog all winter, sitting at my desk, tipping the scale and living on a steady diet of cortisol spikes, it was time to make a change. In the first month, I forced myself to meditate on the voices of my doctor, my husband, my mom, my business coach, and even my six-year-old: “You must exercise, sleep, eat well and get outside more.” It wasn’t working. At every moment of weakness – let’s say I was feeling too

tired to work out one evening – I’d think about those authoritative voices and do something self-defeating like open a bottle of wine or take on a new magazine assignment. To override that inner authority, rather than try to discipline myself enough to listen to that overbearing voice, I decided to try making the inner voice my friend. (After all, healthy disrespect for authority and unhealthy tendency to give into peer pressure often go hand-in-hand). Former church minister John Izzo writes about the importance of “mindfulness” in his book, The Five Secrets You Must Discover Before You Die. He recommends setting one goal at a time and keeping a reminder note in

an obvious place like your pocket or wallet. I did this. My note says: “Your best body.” It’s a bit cryptic and people who do goal-setting exercises would probably criticize its vagueness. But the note is just a reminder, not the actual goal spelled out with all the blood, guts and determination it’s going to take me to achieve it. So I carry this note around with me. And I take it out and I read it throughout the day. I’ve been doing this for eight weeks. It’s my pal. When I need to make any one of hundreds of decisions throughout the day, I take it out and read it. What’s the result? I’m working out two hours daily, eating healthier than ever, forgoing weekday wine. And the best part is I’ve lost 16 pounds, which is four pounds away from the goal I set for September. Skeptical? Well, here’s how being mindful works. The other day, after waking at 5 a.m. with a baby, running around all day doing errands, cooking food and typing articles, the boys’

two-hour round trip to swimming lessons had done me in. Any thoughts of getting in a workout were out of the question. Tired, more than hungry, all I wanted to do was toss a grocery store pizza in the oven, drink a glass of wine and go to bed. But I happened to make a quick stop at my friend Kay’s place. She mentioned she was going to the gym after supper. I got home and took the note out of my pocket. I thrust the pizzas at my husband and said, “I need 30 minutes alone in the basement.” I put the TV on, stretched, got on my exercise bike and pedaled my butt off for 12 kilometres. By the time I got upstairs, the wine was open and the pizzas cooked. My carbcraving exhaustion gone, I showered, drank about a gallon of water, and then had a single piece of pizza and some spinach and edamame salad. Oh yeah, and a guiltfree glass of dry rosé – all because of that single, friendly voice that detests authority as much as me.

Federal funding aimed at human trafficking News - The federal government hopes to have an impact on human trafficking in Ottawa. Rona Ambrose, the federal minister responsible for the status of women announced that $200,000 would be given to Persons Against the Crime of Trafficking in Humans Ottawa at a June 24 event at city hall. “This project will help to support the safety of women and girls in our nation’s capital,” Ambrose said. “Our government is taking action to protect the most vulnerable women in Canadian society. We are doing this through action plans, new laws and essential women’s projects.” Ambrose added the federal government recently launched a national action plan to combat human trafficking. To improve the safety of women and girls across Canada who are targeted for sexual exploitation. The money will fund a two-

FIRE HYDRANTS: TESTING FOR YOUR SAFETY

How much driveway is just right? Tell us what you think!

This summer, as in past years, the City of Ottawa will be testing municipal fire hydrants on various streets throughout your community. Fire hydrant testing may result in temporary inconveniences, such as poor water pressure and brown or rust-coloured water. It is important to note that temporarily discoloured City water is not harmful to your health. This ongoing maintenance procedure ensures that our hydrants are ready, should Fire Services require their use.

City Planning staff are working on an amendment to the Zoning By-law that will make it easier to build a wider driveway in existing communities outside the Greenbelt. The study on Residential Driveway and Parking Regulations in Outer Suburban Neighbourhoods will explore options to allow property owners to enjoy the convenience of side-by-side parking.

Over the next few weeks, the City will be testing fire hydrants in the following neighbourhoods:

You have an opportunity to complete a short survey on the City of Ottawa’s website. The survey will illustrate what the current rules allow and several alternative options.

School News Students St. Patrick’s works to help Free the Children win Stand Up Awards Lesley Salvatore , Fatima Bassal and Amanda Jarvis St. Patrick’s staff

Lesley Salvatore and Kyle Driscoll St. Patrick’s staff

It’s always an exciting Monday mornings at St. Patrick’s Intermediate when the newest Stand Up Award winners are announced and certificates of success are handed out. Stand Up awards are celebrated four times a year for students from each home base who meet certain criteria. Two students, ideally a boy and a girl are selected by home base teacher and confirmed by all other staff to receive awards for respect, honesty, forgiveness and peace. The focus for September to November is Respect, students are identified for qualities such as demonstrating respect towards all peers and staff, a positive attitude towards the school environment and learning. Winners must encourage others to be respectful and stand up for respect. St. Patrick’s focuses on honesty during the winter months. Winners of the Stand Up honesty award must demonstrate core Christian values on a daily basis, communicate and act truthfully, have a good sense of objectivity and Stand Up for honesty. Our winter award winners must demonstrate forgiving qualities. Forgiveness winners are students who maintain positive friendships, persevere through difficult situations, encourage others to be forgiving and stand up for forgiveness. As the weather warms up, the final Stand Up awards is given out for peace. Students meeting the criteria for this award must demonstrate social justice, fairness and lead by modeling non-violence within the school. Peace winners are students who continually encourage others to be peaceful and of course, they stand up for peace. St. Patrick’s are always proud of these winners and exceptional students. As an additional celebration of excellence, all winners are invited to a year end fun adventure day at the YMCA camp in Dunrobin. Students have the opportunity to play co-operative games, rock climb and swim. It is an amazing way to celebrate student success and wrap up the school year.

Throughout the year, English students at St. Patrick’s Intermediate School learn about media, but only a few Grade 8 classes were chosen to do the Adobe Youth Voices project in collaboration with Free the Children. This initiative has students using Adobe technology to create posters that express ideas and opinions allowing students to have a “voice”. To begin this process, students went through a number of activities that had them considering and debating issues that affect our community, country and world. The Issues Bus activity was a student favourite. In this activity, the teacher presented two subjects and asked each student to choose one or the other. Students had to get off the metaphorical “bus” by choosing a side and then explain why they chose that side. This activity allowed us to express our opinions

and consider the ideas of others. Another activity they did was looked at previous Adobe Youth Voices poster made by students from the past years. They graded them, saw the expectations, and found out how to improve their own poster. A great method for reviewing these media works was to consider the style, the message, the audience and the story. Before students made their Adobe Youth Voices poster, the classes brainstormed a number of themes for posters. Some themes chosen were bullying, world hunger, hiding behind beauty, free education and health care and much more. Students had time to research ideas and were asked to write essays about the importance of knowledge of their theme. When all put together the finished results were wonderful. St. Patrick’s Intermediate students are proud to be aware of current world issues and to work with Adobe Youth Voices and Free the Children on this exciting project.

School welcomes Mexican exchange students Kids enjoy Ottawa’s cold weather Joan Sweeney

St. Patrick’s staff

The week after Easter Sunday, St. Patrick Intermediate had the privilege of welcoming a dozen students and teachers from Oaxaca, Mexico, after a year long cultural exchange. For many Mexican students, it was their first time seeing snow and experiencing what they considered to be extremely cold weather even though it was only 7 degrees Celsius. The virtual exchange of cultures began in September, with St Patrick Intermediate students introducing themselves in their classes

to students learning English at Instituto Blaise Pascale in southern, Mexico. Mrs. Sweeney had the opportunity to go to Oaxaca to show parents and students how safe and welcoming it is in the south of Mexico through her Twitter adventures. The two classes continued to share activities across the web - writing letters to each other and sending them through traditional mail including Remembrance Day videos from school celebrations, Christmas activities, introducing students to “their Neighbourhoods” through personal videos, writing and editing essays

on Google Docs etc. All the work of the year culminated into two final projects once the classes were physically together in Ottawa. The first project brought the two classes together into the St. Pat’s Learning Commons where they began intensive planning to create videos for the Adobe Youth Voices project that would express topics of their choice. The two classes were divided into three groups and each group developed a final product after only two days of brainstorming, storyboarding, filming and editing. The films were submitted to the Adobe Aspire Awards under the Collaboration category and the results were outstanding:

• Diversity: www. y o u t u b e . c o m / watch?v=0hxFDtqsw8M • Wishes for Canada: www.youtube.com/ watch?v=z5GOBAHKSPw • Education in Mexico and Canada: /www.yout u b e . c o m / wa t c h ? v = w l _ 7FiEFb2k The second final project had both groups participating in a global photo activity titled the JR Inside Out Project. It is a global movement in many countries that fosters understanding each other through the use of people’s faces. The Oaxaca-Ottawa project is called “Facing each Other” and represents the work of the whole year spent connecting student ideas about each others

countries, cities and finally their local neighbourhoods and families. Students put up the posters together as a lasting symbol of their newly built community - that extends across the continent. Outside the two final projects, the large group also enjoyed joint activities like a day trip to Montreal, touring the National Gallery, a night at Lazerquest, a shared pot-luck lunch at which the ambassador to Mexico joined us and finally a fancy Italian meal together at Cafe Mezzaluna on Cooper Street. Students at both schools would agree that the experience was a unique one, and that everyone had a new appreciation for each other’s country and culture.

A group of 50 Grade 8 students from St. Patrick’s Intermediate School visit Quebec City to learn about Canadian history earlier this year.

Students visit Quebec City St. Patrick’s staff

We are standing on the battlefield overlooking the St. Laurent River. The battle is over, the English have won and the face of Canada is changed forever. Today we can walk the battlefield where the English and French fought. It is called the Plains of Abraham, where tourists can roam, just like a group of 50 Grade 8 French immersion students from St. Patrick’s Intermediate had the opportunity to experience. From March 26 to 28, these 50 students from St. Patrick’s went to Quebec City for the experience and to test our

French language skills for three days. On the first day, the highlight was the intricate Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré. It was very appropriate since it was the Easter season. The ceiling was covered in beautiful religious words and pictures. The stain glass windows were gorgeous and enormous. After touring the basilica, we stayed for a moving mass in French. The next day, we visited one of the Martello towers where the British army was stationed during the war. At the tower, we learned that there were 21 steps to load a rifle and that they tortured soldiers who broke the rules

and played games around the tower. After, we took a walk on the boardwalk behind the Chateau Frontenac where we saw canons from Quebec’s oldest defensive systems. On the final day, we toured la rue St. Jean in Old Quebec, fulfilling all our shopping needs. All in all, the trip was a great success and a magnificent experience. All of this would not have been possible without the wonderful organization of Mme. Oswick and with the supervision of Mme. Al Koura, Mme. Gagné and M. Gonthier. Thank you so much for planning this trip for us, we greatly appreciate it.

Vanier Farmers Market cancelled for 2013 Board votes to shut down market Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - The Vanier Farmers Market has been cancelled for the 2013 season. The decision was made June 26 by the Quartier Vanier Merchants Associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board, citing loss of money, limited interest from residents and low farmer participation as the reasons. The executive director of the merchants association said she wishes the business improvement area didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to go through this. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a sad day for Quartier Vanier,â&#x20AC;? she said. The market opened in the summer of 2008, offering residents in the area a place on Montreal Road to purchase fresh produce. Just last week, Valiquet discussed the 2013 famers market with Ottawa East News, when plans were still in place for the market to start up July 13. In a letter addressed to market supporters, Valiquet expressed her disappointment and sadness about the news. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our family purchased our vegetables from the Vanier Farmers Market almost every Saturday over the last

The Vanier Farmers Market has been cancelled for the 2013 season. The decision was made June 26 by the Quartier Vanier Merchants Associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board, citing loss of money, limited interest from residents and low farmer participation as the reasons. ďŹ ve years,â&#x20AC;? Valiquet wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We travelled from the west end of the city to come here on week-

ends, because we so enjoyed seeing all of you and the general ambiance that a market creates in a communi-

ty. I have very fond memories of our market days.â&#x20AC;? The executive director went on to say the decision was made because of the thousands of dollars in BIA subsidies each year that ensured the market continued. Bands, buskers, Franko the Clown, face painters, barbecues and a petting zoo are just a few of the events the market offered each Saturday in the summer and early fall. An annual tourtiere competition even drew more than 1,200 people the ďŹ rst year the association held the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had lots of fun and the community loved it. Our elected ofďŹ cials attended events and supported the market,â&#x20AC;? Valiquet wrote. It has only been in the last two years that the marketâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s numbers went down and sales began to suffer. Getting the market going this year had been difďŹ cult, starting with the marketâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s location; the Scotiabank parking lot was no longer going to be made available. Valiquet said the BIA worked hard to ďŹ nd another suitable location, acquiring the Belisle Cadillac and Chevrolet parking lot as its new site, with the BIA saying they hoped to grow the market even bigger because of the new-found space. But it was lack of interest from

farmers which was the ďŹ nal straw for the board, who pulled the plug because they could only conďŹ rm ďŹ ve farmers by June 26. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t run a farmers market with only ďŹ ve farmers,â&#x20AC;? Valiquet said. The reason the association was not able to recruit more farmers this year was simple, Valiquet said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Farmers told us about their ďŹ&#x201A;ooded ďŹ elds this year, their lack of staff and that they were too busy with other markets in the area,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our board could not justify the investment required by the BIA without a sufďŹ cient critical mass of farmers. We heard it already from our customers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they wanted more variety.â&#x20AC;? According to Valiquet, the BIA had been supplementing the cost of running the market including tents, storage and staff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The last ďŹ ve years have cost our merchant association, the BIA, hundreds of thousands of dollars to run this not-for-proďŹ t event in Vanier,â&#x20AC;? she said. Valiquet said the board will hold a special meeting on July 9 to discuss new one-of-events the BIA will host during the summer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is the end of a chapter, but who knows, there may be other opportunities later. Time will tell.

Local youth to get business school Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

7,&2

News - The Pinecrest-Queensway Community Health Centre is lending a hand to local youth. The centre is accepting applications for a program targeted at high school students in low-income neighbourhoods that offers entrepreneurial training. Matthew Teghtmeyer, who will be running the program for the PinecrestQueensway centre, said there are lots of entrepreneur programs targeted at youth aged 18 to 25, but nothing for the 14 to 19 age group.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great time, Teghtmeyer said of the teen years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because they should be starting their career planning and unless itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (entrepreneurship) presented to them as an option itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to be on their radar.â&#x20AC;? Teghtmeyer said the program was developed by the centre, who then reached out to Bayshore Shopping Centre, the Rotary Club of NepeanKanata, Invest Ottawa and Bridgehead for ďŹ nancial and in-kind donations. The ďŹ rst session starts July 9 and will run for the summer. It will last eight weeks and offer students lessons on developing a business plan, marketing and making presentations.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will be talks from local entrepreneurs who will give them an in-depth look at what it means to start your own business,â&#x20AC;? Teghtmeyer said. Each session will have a 12-student capacity. Youth are encouraged to apply through the PQCHC youth employment Facebook page or by calling the centre at 613-820-4922. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We developed the program because there is a lack of employment for youth,â&#x20AC;? Teghtmeyer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are primarily looking for west-end applicants because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our catchment, but any youth living in a low-income neighbourhood can apply.â&#x20AC;? The students will also get a chance

to tour Bridgeheadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main roasting centre on Preston Road and enjoy a coffee and chocolate tasting seminar while listening to tips on business acumen. At the close of the course, graduating students will get a $100 gift certiďŹ cate to Bayshore and will be encouraged to apply for the summer company grants offered by Invest Ottawa. The second session of the program will last 12 weeks and start in the fall, with a winter session starting in January. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The youth should learn a lot and have fun while theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing it,â&#x20AC;? Teghtmeyer said.

Thank you! Together, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re strong in the fight against cancer.

Dog park plans unleashed in Vanier Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - A new dog park for pet owners in Vanier is closer to becoming a reality thanks to the efforts of the city and local community association. An open house held at Richelieu Vanier Community Centre on June 24 showed residents the current allowed dog usage in Vanier parks before identifying two potential dog park options: Richelieu Park and Riverain Park. “We have two options and right now we are asking people if they agree or disagree with it,” said Christine Hartig, the city’s support officer for bylaw services. Hartig and her staff have been working with the Vanier Community Association for several months since the organization sparked this initiative in early September. Leading the effort on behalf of the association is vice president Marc Lafontaine who said to finally designate a park, even if only for certain hours of the day, would be a huge win for dog owners in the community. “This is really important. This is all about reaching a considerate and fair compromise for all residents in Vanier,” he said. “Right now we can’t go anywhere and that’s not fair.” Lafontaine said the number of dog owners in Vanier is growing and the closest parks are New Edinburgh’s Stanely Park and Rockcliffe Park’s the Rockeries. The three-hour open house drew in a steady crowd of both for and against the idea. Those who fear unruly dogs running amok once a park is designated, Lafontaine said, should know part of the goal is to keep dog owners from

Marc Lafontaine, Tina Bradford and Tom Ryan attend an open house concerning designating a dog park in Vanier. All dog owners, the three said the area desperately needs a place to take their animals in the neighbourhood. using other parks in the community. “There are people who are afraid of dogs, but responsible dog owners will not bring their dogs to a park if there is a risk,” Lafontaine said. “What we are trying to do is create an area where dog owners can go.” Lafontaine added by giving a particular park a designation, those who are concerned for their safety, their children, or seniors who feel uncomfortable can avoid that particular dog park,

or if the park is only designated a dog park at off hours, to avoid the park at those times. “We are the only neighbourhood that does not allow dogs in a park,” Lafontaine said. “And so there are dog owners who are going to all the parks because there is no designation. This process will stop that.” Currently the city has reviewed all the parks in the community to determine which park would best suit an off-leash or hour-designated

C A N C E R

off-leash park. All 11 parks were looked at and following the city’s dogs-in-parks designation policy, Hartig and her staff categorized the existing parks based on size, proximity to schools and community centres and facilities. The parks were then given points based on the potential to become a dog park. The more points a park receives, the less compatible it is considered with an off-leash designation. Of the 11 parks, Richelieu and Riverain received the lowest points. Whether one or both these parks receive full off-leash, on-leash, or timed designation still needs to be decided. Those in support said they would like to see both parks available as options to take their dogs, as they sit on opposite sides of Vanier. Vanier resident Tina Bradford attended and grabbed extra comment forms to hand out to fellow dog owners in the community. She said she would love to have a place she can comfortably take her dog. The next steps for the city is to gather all the comments made either at the open house or from emailed comment forms. “It’s up to the community,” Hartig said. “If you don’t respond, you don’t get a say. It’s important for everyone who cares to comment on this process because the majority rules.” Because of the late timing of the open house, the city has extended the comment period for this issue, allowing comments to be received until Sept. 16. Hartig added if the community requests it, another open house or public consultation may be held late summer or early fall.

Council approves money for Sussex homes move laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - More than $1 million needed to move two Sussex Drive heritage homes was approved by city councillors, despite some objections. City council signed off on $1.2million to pay to move the Lowertown home and a rowhouse along a curved section of Sussex Drive between Cathcart and Bolton streets back away from the road to ensure they won’t have to be demolished when it is widened over the next two years. During a planning committee meeting on June 25, Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley wondered why it was necessary to pay to move both houses back into the lot. “The houses themselves don’t have any special status,” he said. “So do we really need to move and pay for them?” The city’s heritage planner Sally Coutts said while the homes are not individually designated as having heritage value, they are part of Lowertown’s heritage conservation district. The two buildings have been deemed to have equal value and must be moved in tandem if they are to retain the “street fabric,” she said. Nancy Miller-Chenier, head of the Lowertown Community Association’s heritage committee, said moving the homes diminishes their heritage value. Although the group fought to save the homes, it is hoping the city will change the road project so the homes don’t have to be touched. “The curve has been there since Colonel By laid out the road … (it is) part of the fabric, social history of the area,” Miller-Chenier said, “The only way to do that is to move them. There is no other option. I want you to understand that,” built heritage subcommittee chairwoman Coun. Jan Harder told Chenier. “The battle is won. “If it goes back to anything, it would be to demolishing them. I don’t want to see that happen,” Harder added. Miller-Chenier said she worries about possible damage or a partial collapse of the buildings during the move. Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais

said the NCC should pay if it wants to re-do the road in a way that widens the boulevard. “It’s funny that we’re picking up the tab for them to do something they want to do,” Blais said, noting the NCC isn’t willing to pitch in for projects the city undertakes that involve the federal agency. Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury said it’s “reasonable” to conclude that the city will pay to move the homes because it made the decision to save them. But he added that the city and NCC share many of the costs for the $31-million project and it was Ottawa’s turn to pick up the tab. Blais, Hubley and Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes dissented on the city council vote to approve the housemoving funds. Heritage consultant (and vice chairman of the city’s built-heritage subcommittee) Barry Padolsky’s company is preparing a study on how to move the homes, which will also determine how far back to move them. City officials have said the homes will retain their existing relationship to the street’s edge. The width of the road will widen by approximately two metres around the curve where the homes at 275-279 Sussex Dr. are located. Last year the National Capital Commission and the city had recommended the homes, one of which was home to former governor general Adrianne Clarkson during her childhood, be demolished as part of a plan to complete the NCC’s ceremonial route, Confederation Boulevard. The road project will involve widening the road in certain sections to accommodate cycling lanes in addition to the current four vehicle lanes. The city’s planning committee shocked even heritage advocates last October by unanimously rejecting the homes’ demolition. At the time, the NCC’s project manager, Richard Daigneault, said that option was considered, but removing the buildings wouldn’t have a significant enough impact to warrant the cost. The NCC argued that the rents charged to tenants in the buildings were not high enough to recoup that cost within a reasonable timeframe.

Lowertown protesters were successful last fall in preventing two homes on Sussex Drive from being demolished to make way for a wider road. On June 26, city council approved $1.2 million to move the homes farther back into their lot to make way for the wider road, including cycling lanes.

Mary tries her hand at milking the cows MARY COOK

back then and I knew the time would come when I would be led back into the cow byre and made stick at it until I could fill a milk pail like the brothers and Audrey. Not a word was spoken all during supper about how I had failed at a job that everyone worth his or her

salt would be expected to do growing up on a farm long before modern milking machines did the job for you. Even Audrey, who guarded her belongings like a mother hen guarding her chicks, never said a word about how I smelled of Lily of the Valley.

Mary Cook’s Memories tainly wasn’t working for me. I was convinced the cow didn’t like me any more than I liked her. Audrey tried her best to show me how to milk. Nothing worked. Finally, she went up to Father who was at the far end of the cow byre. “Mary’s hands are too small,” she said. “And

I thought I was doing exactly what my sister was doing, but it certainly wasn’t working for me the cow’s too big,” I offered. Father ran his hand over my head. Even though it wasn’t near my nose, I could smell cow and milk off him, neither of which were my favourite odours. “Well, we’ll try again some other time,” he said. I was out of the barn before you could say “milk pail.” I ran to the house and told Mother I wanted to change my clothes. She knew exactly why. I bundled up what I had on

in the barn and brought the whole pile down to the summer kitchen to wait for the Monday wash. I asked Mother for a pan of hot water and wash cloth and towel, which I hauled upstairs to the privacy of the bedroom. I washed every square inch of my body I could reach, but I thought I could still smell the cow byre off my skin. I opened my sister Audrey’s drawer of the little wash stand we shared and took out her precious can of Lily of the Valley talcum powder and slathered it on with abandon. Then I put on clean clothes from the inside out. When we sat down for supper, my try at milking was never mentioned. I figured the brothers had been warned not to bring up the subject and I knew, without a doubt, my milking days were over, but only for the time being. Everyone had to pull their share

’m telling you, she’s too young,” Mother said. Father said he milked a cow the day he learned to walk. Mother said “that’s nonsense, and you know it.” Rarely did I have so much attention sent my way and I loved every minute of it. With four siblings, rarely was I singled out, but that day I was getting my share. The subject was if I was old enough to milk. Once a calf got to the cow stage, I lost interest in her and I had little desire to sit with my head on her belly and try to get milk into a pail. But Father said it was time I did my share like everyone else in the family. Needless to say I was never consulted as to how I felt about the issue. And so on a Saturday, Father put a three-legged stool at the rear end of the quietest cow in the cow byre, put a pail under her and without a word of instruction told me to go ahead and milk. The old cow turned her head in my direction and then back to chewing her cud. After watching my three brothers and sister do the milking often enough, I figured there wasn’t much to it. Well, I pulled and I tugged, and I spit on my hands and kept saying “sooo Bossie.” Nothing worked. The brothers were real pros at the job. The barn cats lined up on the other side of the gutter and every so often a squirt of milk would be headed in their direction. Without fail, the milk went right into their opened mouths. But here was I who couldn’t even get a drop of milk into the pail. My arms ached right up to my shoulders and a couple times I almost fell off the three-legged stool. It was beyond me why the milk stool only had three legs in the first place. To add to my misery, it was fly season and the poor old cow kept swishing her tail trying to rid herself of the pests. With each swish, however, I took a lash square in the face. Mother was right -- I was too young for this job. But to convince Father was another matter. First of all, I didn’t like the cow byre. It was full of cobwebs, the cows smelled differently from the horses and I wouldn’t put it past any one of them to give me a good kick, especially when I was engaged in something as personal as tugging at her private parts. Emerson, Everett and Earl were into the snickering and I knew it wouldn’t be long before I was into the tears. It was my beloved sister Audrey who finally came to my rescue. She finished milking her cows, the milk had been emptied into the cans, and came over to where I was sitting hunched over, still tugging away with absolutely not a drop to show for my efforts. “Let me try,” she said, and I gladly surrendered the stool. The milk spewed out on the first try with Audrey. I blamed it on the cow. I thought I was doing exactly what my sister was doing, but it cer-

Meet Serena, a two-year-old, spayed female, gold and white Golden Retriever who loves to learn! This sweetheart was brought to the shelter as a stray on May 17, and is now ready to find her pack leader! Serena is a bright, and fun dog who just wants to please. Her and her new owner

will be sure to blow away any competition in obedience classes! Serena has a long, beautiful coat that will require some grooming to stay nice and soft, and to help reduce shedding. Serena is a “Special Needs” adoption. She came in to the shelter with a bad ear infection, and though she seems to be responding to the treatments, we are unclear at this point if her ears will be a chronic problem or not, as this dog’s new

owner you should be prepared for this possibility by discussing this with your veterinarian. Meet Smudge, a 6-year-old, neutered male, brown tabby and white Domestic Shorthair cat who loves to cozy up with his human and is available for adoption! Smudge is patient and has a great easy-going disposition. He wouldn’t mind sharing his household with cats and children, as long as they are cool as a cucumber, just like him. Smudge has only ever known an indoor lifestyle, and would rather not be an outdoor cat. Smudge loves to play and would love if his new family could provide him with great toys! For more information about these or other animals available for adoption, please call the Adoption Centre at 613-725-3166 ext. 258 or visit www.ottawahumane.ca.

PFDs are made just for dogs and are available at many stores – including the Ottawa Humane Society’s retail store located at 245 West Hunt Club Road. A good PFD will have flotation all around your animal’s body, not just along their backs and will be brightly coloured and have a large grab handle along the back of the jacket. If your dog has never worn a PFD, give them time to get acquainted with it before actually getting on the boat. Get your pet used to the PFD in small steps. Start with wearing it in and around your home, then outside for short walks and finally aboard the boat. Make sure the life jacket fits properly and allow your dog to practice swimming in it. To keep your dog from swimming too far away, use a long nylon lead. Keep a close watch to make sure your dog doesn’t get tangled in the lead. This is a great way to make sure new swimmers are relaxed and comfortable in the water.

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

Hughie is a Scottish Fold, a grey tabby, whose ear cartilage is folded, giving his face an owl-like appearance Smart, sweet and laid back, Hughie is a loverboy with big round golden eyes and a soft, tiny voice which is only used for greetings and food emergencies. This fur-face is a trusting homebody and a sharer of favorite things such as live frogs and deceased field mice at the cottage. Playful, curious, he accompanies me ‘round the garden sniffing the roses, his only dispute with the evil resident squirrel. Folds are also loved for their amazing body contortions, their eccentric positions when asleep. Fur-face does this unique sitting thing called the “buddha position”. On haunches, leaning against a pillow, back legs stretched out and front paws crossed on a furry tummy, he sleeps… and everyone in the room tiptoes because we simply cannot bear to disturb this lovable wonder who chooses to live in our home. 9dndji]^c`ndjgeZi^hXjiZZcdj\]idWZÆI=:E:ID;I=:L::@Ç4HjWb^iVe^XijgZVcYh]dgi W^d\gVe]nd[ndjgeZiidÒcYdjiH^beanZbV^aid/X[dhiZg5i]ZcZlhZbX#XVViiZci^dcÆEZid[i]ZLZZ`Ç

Summertime and the livin’ is easy, until a heat wave strikes and the recent weather in the Ottawa area makes it difficult for furry friends to stay cool. You may think that a backyard pool party or a trip to a local beach that allows dogs is a perfect way to beat the heat, but there are some things to think about before you dive in. If you’re swimming with your dog, don’t get in over your head. Many dogs will try to climb on their guardian’s head or shoulders when they tire. Keep a close watch on dogs near pools: an untrained animal will probably head for the nearest edge of the pool to get out, but slippery pool walls do not offer an easy exit. Panic can lead to exhaustion. Barking may be difficult for a dog in the water, making it tough for them to cry for help. Use a canine life vest or PFD. A well-fitted canine life vest is an easy way to keep your dog safe on a boat or while swimming

little family and being able to feed off the other members’ energy, as well as the audiences’, during our performances is definitely the best,” deValk said. The band cites their musical influences as the classic Motown artists such as Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight and Sly and the Family Stone, to name a few. The Hornettes are hoping lots of their fans come out to see them perform, but also encourage every ticket holder to check out the River Stage that afternoon. “They’re all a bit different,” deValk said of the band’s shows. “There are little mistakes, intentional change ups, and funny ‘moments’ that make every show special. We do our best to keep things fresh by continually learning and writing new songs, too.” The band will hit the stage at 1:30 p.m. on July 7. For more information about the group, check out their profile at ottawabluesfest.ca/lineup or go to the group’s Facebook page, facebook.com/thehornettes.

Entertainment - Fans of Motown artists, funk and rhythm and blues are in for a treat as an up-and-coming Ottawa band hits the River Stage this year at Bluesfest. The Hornettes feature Anna Stamatova and Irina Popova on vocals, Jeff deValk on guitar, Ryan Forsberg on bass, drummer Norman Hladik, and horn players Brady Leafloor and Ed Lister. Based mostly in the Glebe, the group performs at local pubs and bars such as Irene’s, Babylon, the Rainbow, Zaphod Beeblebrox, Maverick’s and The Ritual, but this summer the group will make the step up to the Royal Bank Bluesfest on July 7. “We are definitely very excited,” deValk said. “We expect the best bit to be being able to hang out backstage, meet other bands and hopefully find some new fans inside and outside Ottawa.” Although deValk has played the festival before in another band, this will be the first

time The Hornettes will take the stage and the high-energy group promises a good time for all. “We try to one-up ourselves every time we play,” he said. “Energy is the one thing we strive for above anything else, and we try to push ourselves and our audience.” Each show is full of music, dance and fun the group said. This latest gig at Bluesfest will be rounding out the band’s busy winter and spring, which has included sets across Ottawa and Gatineau almost every weekend, the completion of their brand new album and a performance at Jazzfest on June 29. DeValk said the band will be taking a much-deserved break after Bluesfest. Hearing The Hornettes play is like getting thrown back in time. With its big band sound, the group likens itself to Motown artists and bands from the late ’50s and ’60s. The band met through online musician wanted ads three years ago, but since then, they say they have become very close. “We have become like a

Local band to show no mercy at Bluesfest Wicked Mercy will play Sab Stock in Pembroke, opening for David Wilcox on July 7. They are also working on recording their own EP, which Bronson said they plan to offer for free. “We have learned a lot about recording over the last year so we’re going to give it a try,” he said. The guys are a tight knit group, making regular treks out to Pembroke to jam with drummer Cory Zadorozny. Bronson said songwriting used to come solely from his stuff, but said the band is evolving into a more organic process where everyone has a little bit of input. Plans for the future include branching out to shows in Toronto and Montreal and expanding their North American audience. “We have had offers almost daily to review our album from Hungary, Greece, Budapest, France and the U.K., but not a whole lot locally,” Nado said. But whatever happens, the music is a labour of love. There are three bands on Nado’s street in Centretown alone – including one sharing the house he lives in – that will be playing Bluesfest.

Entertainment - Everything seems to have come together for local blues-rock band the Wicked Mercy. Regulars at the Black Sheep Inn and Irene’s Pub, the four-piece band, known for the blistering vocals of Case Bronson, released their self-titled debut album at Irene’s Pub on April 27. They will also bring their unique brand of hard rock harmony to the Black Sheep stage at Bluesfest on July 13. “We are pretty excited to be playing Bluesfest,” Bronson said. “It’s kind of like the brass ring in Ottawa.” Coming off the release of their first album, Bronson said the band is pretty excited for what’s next. The album was produced by Jordan Zadorozny, who is known for working with the likes of Sam Roberts, Hole and Melissa Auf Der Maur. The members all bring something to the sound, whether it’s bassist and Nepean native Mark Sudiacal’s love of funk bands like the Red Hot Chili Peppers or Dave Nado’s love of heavy metal as evidenced

Creating a Sustainable Public Sector Average Canadians understand that in order to be prosperous, you need to live within your means. You cannot spend more than you make, and you see that every dollar is spent wisely. Our government knows this too. That is why we are ending stimulus spending and taking steps to balance our budget and return to surplus by 2015. To do this, we are reforming the public sector in order to align it with current standards in the private sector. Public servants in the federal government have an average absentee rate of 18.2 days per year. This number is two and a half times more than what is common in the private sector. To put this in perspective, on any given day, approximately 19,000 public service workers are off sick. This is unsustainable.

Veteran honoured Korean War veteran Gus Este, second from left, will have a park named after him, after Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches, far left, put forward a motion at city council on June 26. Also shown are Mayor Jim Watson and South Korean Ambassador Cho Hee-yong, who joined Este at the proclamation of Korea Week in Ottawa.

The solution is to reform and modernize the current disability system for public servants, which has gone unchanged for 40 years. By modernizing this system and creating a short-term disability insurance plan, we will be able to provide proper support to employees through periods of illness. In addition, we announced a new management system that will track public service employees’ performance. This government-wide policy will help boost productivity and morale. It will permit management to reward good workers while dealing with poor performers effectively. Ensuring that everyone is pulling their weight is a common sense approach that will encourage the public service to work to its full potential. This is another way in which we are bringing public sector standards in line with the private sector.

TO ALL SPONSORS AND GUESTS

Finally, we are eliminating voluntary severance for public servants. This practice paid severance to those who quit or retired. It is very costly and not something that is seen in the private sector. This measure alone is expected to save taxpayers $500 million every year.

THAT HELPED MAKE THE FIRST ANNUAL

BASH EN BLANC A HUGE SUCCESS!

Our Conservative Government respects taxpayers’ hard-earned money. We are focused on keeping taxes low and returning to a balanced budget by 2015 so that Canada can continue to prosper for years to come.

Local band gets lucky with second Blues Fest gig Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

Entertainment - Three Times Lucky, a homegrown band offering a folksy, blues rock sound, will hit the Barney Danson Theatre stage at Bluesfest on July 5. The five-piece band that rehearses at guitarist Dave Reidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Barrhaven home will also join the likes of Colin James and Johnny Winter at the Calabogie Blues and Ribfest on Aug. 17. This is the second time Three Times Lucky will play Bluesfest. They played in 2011 following the release of their debut album Mojo Offa Muddy. Their second album, Down to Texas, was released in November 2012. The second album quickly moved up to 14th spot of Dawg FMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top 20 CDs list. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was an amazing thing to hear

the song on the radio,â&#x20AC;? Reid said. The group formed in 2009, all of the members having abandoned thoughts of a rock star lifestyle in favour of careers and family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always kept playing music and once the kids were out of the house we all kind of thought it would be good to get back into it,â&#x20AC;? Reid said. Larry Deszcz, a self-described travelling peddler by day, said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great to be able to play Bluesfest because of the chance to be side by side with some world-class musicians. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The side stages are where you get some of the real gems,â&#x20AC;? Reid said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of them are really used to playing the blues circuit â&#x20AC;&#x201C; like New Orleans, Memphis and Texas.â&#x20AC;? The bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home clubs include Greenfields Pub and Eatery in Barrhaven, the Black Sheep Inn, Ireneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pub and the Elmdale Tavern. Reid describes them as a Friday night bar band. SUBMITTED

â&#x20AC;&#x153;John Ryder (a prominent Australian musician) said to me once, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the ladies up dancing youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not doing your job,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Reid said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For some reason people like to get up and dance to our stuff.â&#x20AC;? Reid handles most of the writing, but Deszcz said the band tends to jam things out and collaborate on the sound. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first time I got a royalty cheque in the mail it was really something,â&#x20AC;? Reid said, adding that while it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much, he was happy to be getting paid to do what he loves. While the band doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t plan on doing a world tour, Reid said they are touring local festivals and hinted at a possible show in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s west end near the end of July.

     Keeping us connected with everything and everyone, our ability to hear is priceless. Unfortunately, one in ten of us suffer from hearing loss. If ignored, even the slightest hearing loss has signiďŹ cant consequences. You become disconnected from your world as loved ones become mumblers and asking to repeat becomes a nuisance. Your safety and independence is compromised. You risk misdiagnoses and diminishing cognitive abilities. Indeed, untreated or improperly treated hearing loss has a pronounced negative impact on your quality of life. Consulting the appropriate hearing healthcare provider, in the most independent setting, is crucial. Privately owned and operated by Doctor of Audiology Rosanne McNamee, Hearing Solutions Clinic adopts a unique and refreshing approach to patient care which differs drastically with that of retail settings, larger clinics and manufacturer owned chains. When you walk into Hearing Solutions Clinic, there are no crowded waiting rooms, commission staff or sales tactics. Rather, you will feel at home as you are greeted in an environment with old fashion roots where the focus is personalized hearing healthcare, not hearing aid sales. From your very ďŹ rst visit, you become part of a team working together to reach one goal: to meet your hearing needs. Hearing Solutions Clinic is large enough to offer amazing professional services and products, yet small enough to devote all the time necessary for uncompromised customized care. You will get top quality, integrity, and no shortcuts. Based on past experiences at other hearing clinics, patients are often pleasantly surprised by not only the thoroughness, attentiveness and inclusiveness at Hearing Solutions Clinic, but also the product selection. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Our patients are our top priority. We will never limit their hearing device options as others doâ&#x20AC;? says Rosanne.â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;We remain

Stay smart on the water says safety advocate Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - Staying smart on the water is all about common sense said Boatsmart president Cameron Taylor. Taylor spent the morning of June 27 cruising the Ottawa River near the Nepean Sailing Club to remind boaters to be safe this summer. He said it’s especially important to be vigilant around long weekends. “Keep an eye out for other boaters because there’s going to be a lot more traffic on the waterways,” he said. Boatsmart was founded 10 years ago and is mandated by Transport Canada to outfit drivers with their Boatsmart operator card and to increase awareness of safe practices onthe water. The fine for operating a boat without the card is $250, Taylor said, but avoiding the fine isn’t the only reason to get the qualification. “You need to get the card so that when you’re out on the water you know how to navigate and know the rules,” he said. Rule number one is never go out on a boat without wearing a personal floatation device.

Taylor said 85 per cent of drowning fatalities could have been prevented by wearing one. Drinking and boating also don’t mix. “Seasoned boaters might think it’s OK to have a drink before they boat, but they forget that the effects of alcohol are four times more severe on water than they are on land,” he said, adding 40 per cent of boating fatalities are alcohol related. Before heading out on a trip, the boater should file a travel plan with a trusted friend or the coast guard so someone knows when they should be back. “A lot of people head out on a fishing trip in the spring and then if something happens no one knows where they went, so they die of hypothermia,” Taylor said. He also recommended having a look at the navigation chart of the area where you’ll be travelling to avoid rocks. Checking the weather before you head out can prevent accidents, Taylor said, but if something comes up unexpectedly, keep an eye on what other boats are doing and head to the nearest safe harbour. The number of boating-related

fatalities has decreased annually in the 13 years since Transport Canada made it mandatory to have an operator card. Taylor said education is key in reducing that number even further. “There is still a generational gap, but young people are understanding the importance of wearing a lifejacket and that drinking and boating don’t mix,” Taylor said. For more information on the boater card and rules of the water, visit boatsmartexam.com.

Right, Boatsmart president Cameron Taylor takes a tour on the Ottawa River near the Nepean Sailing Club launch on June 27 to give boaters a few tips about staying safe on the water this summer. JENNIFER MCINTOSH/METROLAND R0012180782
