Traffic project to slow down Springland Sabine Gibbins sabine.gibbins@metroland.com

News - The city is hoping a traffic calming pilot project will help to curb speeding, especially near schools and parks, in River ward. The city’s road safety staff is introducing the seasonal traffic strategy on a portion of Springland Drive, one of 12 projects throughout the city, said River ward Coun. Maria McRae. The traffic calming project has been used in other cities, such as Montreal, and effectively decreased the speed of motorists. Mooney’s Bay resident George Brown, a former regional councillor, said he is pleased to see the city tackle what is a notorious issue in the neighbourhood. Brown said he hopes the project discourages speeders from using Springland as a shortcut to get to other major arteries such as Riverside Drive. “I’ve been watching this issue since I was a councillor, from 1985 to 1994,” he said. “It’s a unique project that they’re doing, and I’m pleased to see that something is being done here.” Brown, who has lived in the Mooney’s Bay area for 46 years, has seen traffic grow, as well as the potential danger as children play close to the street, with some drivers paying no mind. “There are five school bus stops along the route, difficult road curbs – it’s an ongoing issue,” he said. He recalls asking the city to find a way to deal with the speeding issue, but nothing was working, not even speed bumps. Mooney’s Bay and Riverside will continue to see heavier traffic flows, he added.

News - Hunt Club Park residents want the Alta Vista transportation corridor finished before the city starts work on a Main Street redesign. The $55-million Alta Vista project, aimed at easing traffic flows in the south and east ends of the city, will see a 1.2-kilometre stretch of road linking Riverside Drive and the Transitway the Ottawa Hospital campus ring road. Work on the project is expected to finish in 10 years. Meanwhile, city council recently ap-

proved a revamp of Main Street, approving a plan to reduce vehicle lanes from four to two, adding bicycle lanes and wider sidewalks, a two year project finishing in 2015. The Alta Vista transportation corridor has been on the books for 50 years and time is of the essence, said Sheila Gervais, spokesperson for the Hunt Club Park Community Association. “It’s not like we are NIMBYs,” she said. “We aren’t. It’s just that we want to have access to alternative routes like other communities do.” At an open house last month, Hunt Club Park residents voiced concerns about traffic and alternate routes to the downtown while

Main Street is being revamped. Sheila Gervais, civic affairs coordinator with the Hunt Club Park Community Association, said the majority of residents would like to see work on the Alta Vista transportation corridor finished before the complete revitalization of Main Street. The community association said it’s worried it will see an increase in the number of cars cutting through its neighbourhood. “This is compounded for our community, in particular, given the lack of acceptable alternative routes,” Gervais states in a community report.

At the same time as this project is set to begin, the Hurdman transit station will be “decommissioned” for a period of time, causing more traffic snarls for residents, Gervais said. If the community had access to an arterial route, then they would have less concerns about the Main Street redevelopment, she said. “Right now, they’re telling us to take either Riverside or go on the highway east to Montreal, and then get onto Walkley, and then back onto the highway to get off at Innes,” she said.

Road safety staff said research shows 85 per cent of motorists who drive on Springland, when unaffected by poor weather or slow traffic, travel at speeds of up to 60 km/h, or 20 km/h over the posted limit. Springland was designed to serve travel between local roads and arterial roads, or travel between roads. In the past, city traffic staff conducted traffic counts and origin/destination studies and have concluded Springland is not at capacity. The city has also responded to community concerns about the safety of children crossing Springland in front of Holy Cross School. Last January, a school crossing and an adult crossing guard were placed at that location. Anyone with traffic safety issues can report them to the Ottawa police at 613-236-1222, ext. 7300.

ments. As soon as the Hunt Club Road extension is done, which should be by 2014 said Gervais, then residents don’t have much of a choice in terms of finding an alternative route downtown. While residents are not opposed to the actual design of the project, they do have concerns with the amount of traffic congestion and bottleneck situations motorists may find themselves in due to the Main Street project. If the community had access to such an arterial road, then they would have very few concerns about the timing of the Main Street project, or the project at all. Should the Alta Vista transportation corridor be started first, they would favour an alternative which appears to best accommodate the most elements related to improving the street with respect to traffic flow, transit, and other alternative modes of transportation – bike and pedestrian as key examples, said Gervais. The association favours a roundabout as it would best accommodate traffic flow at the Main Street and Riverside intersection.

Main Street redesign sparks transportation debate at committee East Ottawa residents speak out largely in favour of project Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - A vision to convert Main Street into a “complete street” narrowly gained the support of the city’s transportation committee on July 5. The proposal to reduce vehicle lanes from four to two, adding instead bicycle lanes and wider sidewalks, sparked a four-hour ideological debate about how transportation modes should be prioritized in the city. Concerned about slowing down south-end commuters and limiting the development potential of 11 hecatres of oblate land on Main Street that’s set to be redeveloped, councillors almost voted against the community-supported vision for fewer car lanes on Main Street. Transportation committee chairman Keith Egli, the councillor for Knoxdale-Merivale Ward, said now is the time for city council to under-

take a progressive project like this. “We’ve heard strongly this morning from the public … that this is what they want,” Egli said. “How many times does that happen in this room? Very, very rarely.” Egli pointed out that no residents from the city’s south end, especially Gloucester-Southgate Ward, came to the committee to speak against the plans. The councillor who represents that ward, Diane Deans, put forward the motion asking staff to keep the road four lanes, add bike lanes and then determine the cost it would take to eventually convert that road into the two-lane, complete-street vision. She was especially concerned about the impact on traffic between the time the construction is supposed to take place in 2014 and 2015 and the completion of the city’s light-rail line in 2018. Councillors Rainer Bloess, Allan Hubley, Scott Moffatt and Tim Tier-

ney supported Deans’ idea, but her motion was defeated in a tie. The committee then voted 6-4 in favour of the complete-street plan. Ron Clark, a consultant from Delcan who is in charge of the project, said the proposed modifications would lengthen the commute for motorists by about three to five minutes. Deans questioned the accuracy of transportation engineers’ counts of how many motorists would be affected. “You suggest it’s 300, I would suggest to you it’s a lot more,” Deans said, adding that staff presented an “unrealistic picture.” But Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson, the former transportation committee chairwoman, reminded her colleagues the changes wouldn’t mean drivers could not take Main Street. It means they might have to sit in traffic for a couple extra minutes, she said.

portation than a car, it’s a good thing that can help the city meet its active transportation goals. Talk of prioritizing cycling did not sit well with Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley, who said the “social engineering” of telling people how to get around made him nervous. He also saw a potential danger in having cycling tracks that are raised to the same height as a sidewalk. “Are we going to see an increase in bikes nailing children as they walk down the sidewalk?” he asked. Clark said the design would include trees, street lights and other intermittent barriers to provide some separation between cyclists and pedestrians. The committee also supported a motion that reaffirms the development potential for an additional 1,000 residents in the oblate lands beside St. Paul University. That intensification goal is listed in the secondary plan, but Lloyd Phillips, a lawyer representing the Oblate Fathers, worried the reduction in road capacity could affect whether the city gives approval for the development plans. Although there is a detailed community design plan for the oblate lands, no development is proposed yet. City staff said the first phase of development there may occur in the next five years.

“If someone wants to stay on Main Street they can do that and it will take them a bit longer,” she said. Deans was combative with Old Ottawa East residents who spoke to

She said residents in her southend ward are willing to accept their commuting route changing to a complete street, but only if Old Ottawa East residents agree to building the Alta Vista Transportation Corridor – a controversial proposed road connecting Old Ottawa East to Alta Vista over the Rideau River.

HOPE serves up annual summer fest

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll serve, volley and stick their feet in the sand for a good cause. The 31st edition of HOPE (Helping Other People Everywhere) Volleyball SummerFest is set to take place July 13 at Mooneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bay Beach. Originally inspired by Terry Foxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Marathon of Hope run in 1981, this year will see 1,032 teams engage in a little friendly competition on 86 courts while raising funds for six deserving charities. HOPEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive director Holly Tarrison said there is always a high anticipation leading up to the event, and thousands of dollars have been raised for local non-profit organizations. The HOPE Amphitheatre will provide music-lovers, and perhaps even winded volleyball players, with the chance to enjoy musical acts from various Canadian entertainers such as The Reason, Matt Mays, and the Arkells, from 2:30 p.m. on towards the evening hours. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all for a really great cause,â&#x20AC;? she said. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recipients include the Ottawa Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Treatment Centre, the Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa, the Lung Association, Make-a-Wish Eastern Ontario, the Distress Centre of Ottawa and Region, and the University of Ottawa Heart Institute Foundation. Since its inception, the event has seen more than $3.5 million in support of more than 110 organizations, said Tarrison. Each year, the event itself combines a recreational sport with live concert entertainment from notable Canadian bands and artists held in the evening. The tournament is expecting at least 25,000 volleyball players to crowd the beach and grassy area. Although charities can reapply to be recipients, HOPE organizers have always kept the charities different each year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We try and keep it so that there is three years between the

The recommended names were developed by following established principals of transit systems across the country. The names should reďŹ&#x201A;ect meaningful geographic and navigational information. They must be easily understood in English and French and should be distinct and recognizable. The Confederation Line has 13 stations and the City is recommending names for six of them, including three brand new stations and suggested changes for three existing stations. The balance are recommended to remain the same. The City is also involved in a separate process to rename LeBreton station to recognize the traditional land of the Algonquin People. The recommended names are as follows: sTunneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a modiďŹ cation of the current name, Tunneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pasture, to reďŹ&#x201A;ect the way it is commonly used by riders sKent â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a new station located under Queen Street at Kent Street sParliament â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a new station located under Queen Street at Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor sRideau â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a new underground station at Rideau Street SUBMITTED

Ottawa psychic brings messages from spirit world it ever since. Now that gift is hugely helpful, he says, not only in his own personal healing journey, but for those around him who seek his services. “When you devote yourself to something, whether it’s this, (or something else), there are times when it just comes up,” Stapley says when asked if he could just shut off the messages that he hears. “There are times when it comes out randomly … like if I’m in a lineup and someone asks me what I do for a living, and they’ll end up hearing from their (deceased) grandmother,” he says with a laugh. But he doesn’t just deliver messages without someone taking that initial step. “In order to do random messages they have to ask me what I do for a living,” he says. “That’s my rule for the spirit world.”

His live, three-part performance will kick off at 7:30 p.m. at Kingston’s Residence Inn. “It’s going to be awesome,” he said in a phone interview. Stapley is becoming well known in the nation’s capital and beyond, with a television show on Rogers, radio gigs, as well as personal readings and group sessions at cafés, book stores and the like. Stapley says he’s able to dial into messages from loved ones who have passed on and he delivers those messages in such a way as to bring hope, peace and love to the inquirer. The final part of the evening for those who have purchased VIP tickets, will be a seance. “It think it’s going to be very cool,” he said. Because of the intensity of the messages and how he brings those messages to the inquisitive, Stapley prepares his own mind, thoughts and feelings prior to a show of this magnitude. It’s not just another psychic reading, he says. “It’s a lot of energy, but it’s nice. I have a good team of people working with me behind the scenes as well to help maintain my energy, and of course my spirit guides and loved ones in spirit, and my angels will help me maintain my energy level and the energy of

Ottawa psychic-medium Matthew Stapley will be in Kingston on July 26 for a three-part show at the Residence Inn. He says he will carry messages to guests from the spirit world in a show that will have patrons indulge in a Q&A, personal readings and a seance. the stage and make it conducive for that type of event.” Meditation is key, he says. “But honestly, I just jump in with both feet. The energy within that preparation is very important to ensure people get the healing that they’re coming to get.” Stapley says the majority of people who attend an event like this do so in hopes of hearing from loved ones who’ve passed and to help themselves in their own healing journeys. “If people are coming for

that, then the least I can do is to give them all I’ve got with that 100 per cent preparation,” he says. IN THE BEGINNING

Stapley was just eight years old and living in Carleton Place when he says he had his first psychic encounter. He was getting messages from his deceased grandfather, who was also a medium. “I went through periods when I was depressed and I

shut down,” he says, adding he wasn’t sure what he was encountering. “It’s only been the last year when I have opened up and told my story about growing up as a medium, and needing counselling,” Stapley said. “I was feeling so much from other people (spirit-wise). I was doing readings, but I didn’t know how much spirit was in my life until I had one psychiatrist tell me that I wasn’t sick and I had a gift.” He’s been working with

Money, no money, for better or worse, Stapley says that when he decided to switch gears from working as a medical lab technician to a full-time psychic-medium, it opened up a huge part of his life – being in service and helping people. “I feel that this is what I’m here for … to bring people those messages.” A car accident in which he suffered a head injury really drove home the point that this is his gift, and he should be using it to the best of his ability. “The full-time realization came about when I was 23,” he says, which was only four years ago. The best part of his gift is helping people, he says, but what’s the worst part? “No one’s ever asked me

that,” he says. “That’s cool … I guess the worst part is the times where I’m helping someone, but the calibre of that message isn’t that strong. I will refund my client because I’m not getting what I want to get out a session. If it’s not up to my standards, my client will not pay.” Stapley does have repeat clients, but cautions not to get too used to his services. “I would say that my services can be a great way to connect but I think there is a certain amount of personal responsibility that comes on my client’s part and on mine to ensure that the readings are a guiding tool, not a dependency,” he says. Sometimes, his friends bug him for free readings, but he doesn’t often get the right connections. “For me authenticity and integrity are so important in a reading and when I know someone too well I find that the principles of ethical spirit communication can be jeopardized,” he says. For the skeptic, a testimonial from an Ottawa lawyer, who would only share the initials M.Q., said that he tested Stapley on his ability to connect with his deceased father before he believed in Stapley’s psychic ability. “Matthew passed with flying colours. The amount of information and the specificity of the information Matthew provided shocked me. Only my father and I could possibly have been aware of the events and information Matthew conveyed to me. I am definitely converted and believe in spirit and am convinced that Matthew is a medium capable of conveying messages from those passed on.”

Residents, developers ! % 0 9 o T p U e v a S find common ground on infill concerns Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

PROFIT

Robillard said the city must proceed with caution when it comes to reducing the development potential of people’s properties. “You’re destroying the possibility of a homeowner selling the lot and making a profit,” he said. Both community members and developers alike overwhelmingly agreed that building height is the most important factor to determine whether a home will complement neighbouring dwellings. “Height is the biggest element,” said Al Bateman, a local developer. “That sets the mass (of the building). Action Sandy Hill board member Chad Rollins said the rear-yard distance from a neighbouring property is almost as critical as the building’s height. Feedback from the workshops will be used to draft some new rules that will be presented to the public in the early fall. The issue of converting homes into apartments or rooming houses for multiple residents was a frequently referenced concern during the meeting. Gauthier reminded participants that the city is undertaking a parallel study on home conversions and a public meeting on that issue will be held Sept. 16.

News - Community members and builders often spar over balancing the desire to protect neighbourhoods with the need to maintain development potential, but at a recent meeting they did find some common ground over the factors that should be considered as the city drafts new infill design rules. While the first phase of the infill guidelines – currently under legal appeal from a group of developers – focused on parkways and greenery, the second phase gets to the heart of the issue: the height and mass of new homes in established communities inside the Greenbelt. The fourth in a series of workshops was held at the Sandy Hill Community Centre on July 5 and Action Sandy Hill board member Sophie Beecher introduced participants to the context of the neighbourhood to kick off the session. “We seem to be at the crossroads of different pressures here in Sandy Hill,” she said, referencing the need to house students of the nearby University of Ottawa, transit-oriented development and the pressure of people wanting to move into a low-rise neighbourhood with good access to the downtown core. Sandy Hill is experiencing infill in a way that completely maximizes the building envelope, Beecher said. That’s what’s driving the need for new rules, city planner Carol Ruddy told the group she led during the workshop. “Now we’re seeing people maxing out the existing zoning capacity that has remained unused for 100 years, in some cases,” she said. “Zoning doesn’t necessarily reflect the character of the neighbourhood.” What was once a “trickle” of infill applications is now a flood, said city planning manager Alain Miguelez. More than 1,600 applications for small-scale infill housing have been

filed with the city in the past five years. Participants groaned as Beecher showed photos of converted and expanded homes in Sandy Hill that dwarf their neighbours. That prompted Rolf Robillard, who works with local builder Prime Development and Constructors, to defend his industry. “Why don’t we look forward?” he said. “These people didn’t do anything wrong.” “They didn’t do anything wrong,” Beecher conceded, but she added that doesn’t mean they are appropriate for the neighbourhood.

Byelections only delay inevitable

B

yelections are traditionally an opportunity for voters to protest public policy and punish the government. But Premier Kathleen Wynne has taken it one step further by scheduling five byelections on Aug. 1 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a couple days before the start of a long weekend â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and in effect punishing the voters, by staging a vote during the dead of summer. The byelections were triggered by the resignations of five Liberals, including former premier Dalton McGuinty, long-time MPP of Ottawa South. The scheduling of the byelections is a little suspicious -- is the government hoping to escape the lash of the voter by staging them during a time that will attract the minimum number of people? Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not talking about the dyed-in-wool Liberal/ Conservatives/NDP supporters, the kind who would cast their ballots in the middle of a hurricane. No, the timing of the summer byelection is aimed squarely at the balance of the electorate: the undecideds, the swing vote and, of course, the cottage country enthusiasts. In a perfect world, every Ontarian would take it as their duty to vote in every election, be they federal, provincial or municipal. But we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t live in a perfect world, and we

only need to look at the dismal turnout for the last provincial election to prove that. A byelection figures to attract a remarkably smaller crowd. When scheduling an election, a government should endeavour to hold it during a time period designed to attract the most people possible. Unfortunately, this is a truism that only holds if the government actually wants people to vote. In fact, Premier Kathleen Wynne wants to avoid an election â&#x20AC;&#x201C; byelection or general â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for as long as humanly possible. For the few months sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been in power, the fledgling premier has been bailing water for the Good Ship Liberal, cleaning up the mess left behind by Dalton McGuinty, who resigned shortly before the government was hammered with scandals, such as the gas plant fiasco and a police investigation of the Ornge air ambulance service. Meanwhile, the electorate waits with baited and steaming breath, looking to wreak vengeance on the Liberals by cleaning house in the next general election. While we commend the political acumen of our premier, she might want to consider simply biting the bullet and holding a general election â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not during a civic holiday â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as soon as possible. To do otherwise is just delaying the inevitable.

COLUMN

Coming soon to a corner store near you â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or not

T

here was some excitement in the newspapers recently over the possibility of beer and wine being sold in corner stores in Ontario. This is always a big story whenever it reappears, as it always does. A good guess is that it is a big story because beer and wine are important to journalists, the people who make the decisions about whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big story. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not important because journalists like beer and wine more than the next fellow does. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important because journalists think it should be more important. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a self-image thing at work here. Newspaper people have long had the reputation of being hard drinkers. For some reason they like that reputation, even though it has long ceased to be deserved. Once it certainly was, but these days, if you go out to lunch with five newspaper guys, the heavy drinker will be the one ordering Perrier while the others all have tap water. Anyway, beer in the corner store becomes a big story, just like the ones that say wine is good for your heart. Wishful thinking is what it is and journalists are just as capable of it as anyone else. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s version of the big story carried the headline â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sousa wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rule out store

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town alcohol sales.â&#x20AC;? This is a bit of a tipoff that beer and wine in corner grocery stores isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much closer than it ever was. When a politician is asked a question and wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t answer definitely one way or another, the journalistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last resort is to ask: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Would you rule it out?â&#x20AC;? Very few politicians dare to rule anything out completely, because they need to leave room to change their minds. So they say no, they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rule it out, and you get a headline like that. Charles Sousa, the finance minister of Ontario, told reporters that there are no plans to change the structure of the Liquor Control Board of Ontario.

Wednesday whether heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d allow convenience stores to sell booze, Sousa wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rule it out.â&#x20AC;? He wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rule it in either, despite being asked repeatedly, and probably for good reason. No one has come up with much in the way of justification for making the change. Customers arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t suffering from the current system. In all but the most remote areas, no one is very far away from a Beer Store or an LCBO. The main impetus for the current discussion is the Macâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s convenience store chain, which says it will create jobs. It might also create trouble, which is probably why previous Ontario governments havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ruled the idea in. It is difficult enough now to keep booze out of the hands of underage drinkers and those who have had more than enough in an evening. Putting the corner store into the picture is going to increase the difficulty. Sure, the idea of creating jobs is nice, but the people in those jobs will have an unfair burden placed upon them. While employees for the LCBO and the Beer Store are wellpaid and well-trained to handle difficult situations, is it fair or realistic to ask the same of a convenience store employee, often working alone late at night?

If some greater good was involved, maybe that would be worth the risk, but it is difficult to see where the greater good is. Shorter distances, longer hours? Certainly Charles Sousaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s predecessors have had difficulty seeing it. They might even think that Ontario has more urgent priorities, even if wine really is good for your heart. The only remaining question is why, given all this, Sousa is not more unequivocal on the subject. It may just be that he understands his role in the press conference games journalists play. I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rule that out.

The least most important thing

A

R0012200190

nyone who has watched Mad Men religiously for six seasons, as I have, will remember Don Draperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s classic line: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re creative, the least important most important thing there is.â&#x20AC;? I was meditating on this line during my morning run on the Rockcliffe Parkway and it occurred to me that, in a different context, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the least important most important thingâ&#x20AC;? to humans is our natural environment. Last month, the Ontario government officially killed the plan in its current form to construct an interprovincial bridge at Kettle Island. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure the cheers in my neighbourhood were heard across the city when the news broke. At the announcement, held in front of the Montfort Hospital on June 17, Transportation Minister Glenn Murray cited the interruption to ambulance traffic as one of the primary reasons for the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rejection of the Kettle Island plan. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s often been on the lengthy list of arguments against the bridge proposal.

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse But top of mind for residents and the politicians that represent them has been the impact a bridge would have on the natural environment bordering the Aviation and Rockcliffe Parkways. Despite this, for years, the National Capital Commission has undervalued the impact of the bridge on sensitive ecosystems in the area. More importantly, it has ignored the integral role of nature to the people that live in the surrounding neighbourhoods. Instead, the NCC continued to fork over millions of taxpayer dollars to an outside consulting firm, with the Kettle Island proposal predetermined as the best option. Unfortunately, as with so many things in modern society, the primary reason Kettle Island has been the favourite

is because it was predicted to be the least expensive option. But that argument only holds if we only think about value in terms of money. What if we actually took the time to consider the value of the natural environment? The trees and wildlife east of downtown and bordering the Ottawa River are not merely nice to look at. They are essential to the emotional, intellectual and physical well-being of city residents. This is especially true as we collectively face the challenge of maintaining and altering a city that will accommodate our aging population. Mayor Jim Watson is devoting a lot of his personal energy these days to the examination of a city that will be senior-friendly. An aging population means

LETTER

health care costs are set to increase. It means that seniorfriendly housing needs to be top of mind for developers. It means that any transit plan put in place will have to be accessible for people with varying disabilities. All these things are important. Also important is to have a city where not just seniors but all residents can have easy access to the natural environment. There are a vast number of studies that link human connection with nature to everything good: people that have parks nearby are more likely to actively commute, have lower blood pressure, lower BMI, fewer health issues overall and better overall mental health. Even those with mental health issues -- depression, attention deficit disorder and stress -- have found that regular interaction with nature mitigates symptoms. As the city and province go forward, as proposed by Murray, to create a master transit plan, we can only hope that nature is considered, at minimum as the least important most important thing.

Think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll stick to the back yard To the editor,

Having read your editorial in the July 4 edition, I offer the following observations on your concluding paragraph: â&#x20AC;&#x153;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.â&#x20AC;? Unfortunately I think I do know what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m missing: â&#x20AC;˘ The long hunt looking for a place to park. â&#x20AC;˘ Once having strategically placed my lawn chair, having rude people stand in front of me with their butts in my

line of vision. â&#x20AC;˘ Loud noise masquerading as music. â&#x20AC;˘ Hot, sweltering, sticky Ottawa summer weather. â&#x20AC;˘ Cigarette smoke, alcoholinfused screaming and the wafting odour of pot. â&#x20AC;˘ Crude language and sexually dominated lyrics. â&#x20AC;˘ Crowds, crowds, crowds. So, my peaceful backyard and a cool beverage make a great alternative to something oriented exclusively to the teen, tween and twentysomething crowd, thanks very much! John R. Ferguson Nepean

Councillor Diane Holmes, Chair of the Board of Health, welcomed over 130 residents to the Healthy Eating Active Living Innovation Forum at the Ron Kolbus-Lakeside Gardens Centre on June 18, 2013.

environments to help make the healthy choice the easy choice – has been a significant priority for the Board of Health over the course of our term.,” said Councillor Holmes. “By bringing together various levels of government, grassroots initiatives and residents, we are setting the stage for real changes to make Ottawa a healthier city.” Local champions also shared their creative healthy eating and active living ‘recipes for success’ including starting a workplace running club and setting up a ccommunity kitchen. Some of the insp inspirational initiatives, organizations and businesses that were profiled at tthe forum included Causeway Right Bike, Boomerang dd West Carleton Kids Strollercise Strollercise, Country Kitchen, Kitchen Hidden Harvest, Ottawa Walking Walking/Running Program at Canadian Air Transport Security Authority, Ottawa Citizens Corpor Corporation Rooftop Garde Gardens, Brewer Park Com Community Garden Bio Biodome and Stone Sou Soup Food Works.

Let the foolishness begin Theatre troop hits parks again this summer Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

Entertainment - A Company of Fools is once again hanging out in parks for your comedy pleasure this summer. The theatre troop opened up its 10th Torchlight Shakespeare season on July 3 in Strathcona Park with The Merry Wives of Windsor at 7 p.m. The Fools, who travel across the region and perform in community parks all summer long, offer patrons the chance to view Shakespeare under the stars. “In 2003, the Fools created what has since become our signature event – the annual Torchlight Shakespeare series,” the company posted on its website. “This event makes Shakespeare accessible by taking it out of the theatre and into neighbourhood parks each summer, allowing the Fools to bring our unique brand of Shakespeare right to your back yard.” In keeping with the company’s foolish-fun, only six actors will take on the roles of more than 15 characters for the play, which is directed by Cartriona Leger. The shows will run from July 3 to Aug. 17 with a 7 p.m. start time each

evening. While the shows are free for all, a hat will be passed around the audience to collect donations. The company will be visiting city parks from Orléans to Stittsville and every where in between. The Company of Fools is Ottawa’s oldest professional Shakespeare company and to celebrate its 24th year in operation and the 10th anniversary of the torchlight series, the festivities will continue into the fall this year with Torchlight Too: Hal & Falstaff. This second Torchlight will offer an adaptation of Henry IV Part 1 and 2 with bits of Henry V and Richard II thrown into the mix. The play will be adapted and directed by founding Fool Margo MacDonald. This indoor production will tour to three different venues from Sept. 2 to 22. Tickets will be “pay what you can” donation, but audiences will have the option to purchase tickets in advance, guaranteeing admittance, by booking ahead on eventbrite.ca for $20 per person. Both the summer productions will feature the same group of talented artists – some familiar faces to Fools fans and some brand new foolish actors: Simon Bradshaw,

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The province has given the green light to $36 million for the second round of the Smart Grid program. Ontario Minister of Energy Bob Chiarelli invited Ontario companies and educational institutions to apply for the funding during an announcement at the Algonquin Centre for Construction Excellence on July 2. The program was originally launched in April 2011 and supported nine projects to the tune of about $14 million. Chiarelli said 600 direct and indirect jobs were created by the projects funded in the first round of the smart grid program. It supports Ontariobased projects that test, develop and bring to market the next generation of energy development. Chiarelli said it is supported by investments like Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $4.7-million smart meters. The idea is to connect the electricity system with new technologies that will reduce service disruptions, increase conservation capacity, waste less energy and increase grid security. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Projects like the one Prolucid (a software engineering company) developed give local distribution companies more automated control and the ability to pinpoint an outage,â&#x20AC;? Chiarelli said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The power will be back on as soon as the storm is over. Distribution companies will know the moment power goes out in your home.â&#x20AC;? Niraj Bhargava, CEO of Energate, whose consumer-connected demand response project was funded under the program last year, said the company employs 40 people to develop energy management solutions. Kent MacDonald, president of Algonquin College, said as leaderof an educational institution graduating the next generation of skilled labourers, he recognizes the importance of funding sustainability initiatives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The investments being made in advanced energy technology will positively impact the future careers of our graduates,â&#x20AC;? he said. Project applications for the second round of funding will be accepted until Sept. 6.

All-stars come out to support autism fundraising Canseco, Riddick Bowe take part in a home run derby for charity Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - It was a busy day at Carlington Park when a number of all-star players came out to the community field to play a little baseball for charity. Former baseball star Jose Canseco, boxing champion Riddick Bowe, Pittsburgh Penguins prospect Clark Seymour, former National Hockey League player Doug Smith and former football player and wrestler Glenn Kulka joined organizer and baseball fan Evan Malamud for the Home Runs for Autism fundraiser on July 6 at the community park. The group of heavy-weight stars formed two teams – Team Baseball and Team Hockey – to compete in a home run derby challenge. “This is a great cause, and everyone should help raise some money,” Canseco said. Malamud started this fundraiser in 2012 when he had challenged Canseco over Twitter to a derby, in hopes he would show and help raise money for autism. Canseco took on the challenge and came to Ottawa free of charge to help raise as much as he could for the charity. Malamud won the derby against his favourite baseball player. The event took place at the Ottawa Baseball

Hospital researcher to volunteer at Ride the Rideau By Tracey Tong He may be one of Canada’s top neuromuscular researchers, as well as a Senior Scientist and Deputy Scientific Director at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, but Dr. Rashmi Kothary is still not too busy to help a good cause. Rashmi and his wife, Arti, will be volunteering for the second year with Ride the Rideau, The Ottawa Hospital Foundation’s signature fundraising event. The fundraiser, which has raised $4.4 million for cancer research at The Ottawa Hospital over the last three years, will be held on Saturday, September 7. “We like to do volunteer work in the community,” said Kothary. “We support a number of causes, but Ride the Rideau, which contributes funds to research at The Ottawa Hospital, is close to our hearts. We’ll be at the finish line, where we will show support to the riders, and to recognize them for their hard work.”

Kothary, who is also a Professor in the Departments of Medicine and Cellular and Molecular Medicine at the University of Ottawa, said cancer impacts many people, including his own family and friends.

MICHELLE NASH/METROLAND

Two-time world heavyweight boxing champion Riddick Bowe takes a stab a playing baseball for the first time in 32 years to help raise money for autism programming and research at the second annual Home Runs for Autism fundraiser at Carlington Park on July 6. Bowe was joined by baseball player Jose Canseco and some Hall of Fame hockey players for a home run derby and all-star game.

Stadium in May 2012 and raised more than $10,000 for CHEO. This charity is close to Malamud’s heart as his oldest son Jaedyn was diagnosed as autistic at the age of two and since the diagnosis Malamud and his family have spent a lot of time at CHEO for their autism services. A year later, Malamud and Canseco were back at it, joking around like old pals and playing for the same team. “He beat me last year so I though it would be better to play with him,” Canseco told the crowd. To prove this event was more about raising money for autism and less about egos, the 45year-old Bowe, a two-time world heavyweight champion, picked up a baseball bat for the first time in 32 years to help. Canseco said this would become an annual event, so even if people missed it this year, they should come out for next year’s challenge. Both teams knocked a few balls out of the park and, making up for last year, Canseco repeatedly knocked ball after ball over the fence. An all-star game followed the derby, with members of both the Carleton Ravens and the Ottawa Gee Gees playing alongside Canseco and Bowe. Two fans donated $120 and $125 to play on Team Hockey for the game. The friendly event had the players and fans mingling together, after which Canseco signed balls, hats and shirts while Bowe sat in the stands and chatted with the crowd. Malamud said the organization will take the next few weeks to tally to the total and present CHEO with a cheque shortly after.

Newly formed Firebelly hits the stage July 13 Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

Entertainment - Firebelly will flex its electric muscles at Bluesfest for the first time this July 13. Band members Fredy Carrière, Dan Grewal and Mike McNeil knew each other for many years before coming together to play a few tunes with fellow musician Mathieu Gagnon one December night. It was shortly after that evening that the band now known as Firebelly formed. Carrière said it was that particular winter evening jam session at the Rainbow Bistro that sparked the beginnings of the band. “From the first song, all of us knew we were on to something that night,” Carrière said. “(We) are good friends who enjoy creating and improvising. Each member contributes their unique personality and musical talent to the band.” The band has been moving quickly through the Ottawa-Gatineau music scene and will mark the first of what they hope will be many Bluesfest gigs on July 13 when they take to the Black Sheep stage at 5 p.m. The sound of Firebelly offers blues fans something a little different – an electric harp has been thrown into the mix. Gagnon is the lead singer and harp player. Carrière said Gagnon is a captivating storyteller, with the rare ability to make the audience feel as though they are living through the song. “It’s his sweet, powerful voice and electrifying harp playing,” Carrière said. This electric harp is combined with the

smooth and funky bass guitar playing by Grewal, McNeil’s lively drums and the guitar playing of Carrière to create what the band describes as a “stripped down” blues sound, influenced by blues legends such as Muddy Waters, Sonny Boy, B.B. King, Albert King, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Buddy Guy. The band also incorporates elements of funk, swing, folk, zydeco, roots and country. This year has been a busy one for the young band: within one year of existence they have represented the Ottawa Blues Society at the International Blues Challenge (Memphis), received commercial radio airplay on Ottawa’s local blues station and have been invited to perform in an all-blues showcase at Canadian Music Week. For the performers, it’s not all about their own performance: the group said they are looking forward to hearing some of the bigger names hit the stage. “The line – up-blues and non-blues – of the RBC Bluesfest is fabulous this year,” Carrière said. “We look forward to catching some great bands and establishing some contacts with other musicians.” Bluesfest will not be the only festival stop this summer for the group. The band previously played the BlackSheep Inn in Wakefield, Les Brasseurs du Temp and will be performing at the Calabogie Blues and Ribfest this Aug. 16 as well as other local venues, such as, the Rainbow Bistro, the Atomic Rooster and Irene’s.

Going hungry was always one of Mary’s fears

T

he sauerkraut barrel was just about empty in the summer kitchen. It has served us well since the early fall when the whole family spent many evenings shredding cabbage to fill it to the brim. The salt pork barrel was empty too and had been thoroughly washed and set out on the back stoop to dry in the sun. The smallest of the three barrels had long since given up the last pickled herring. Even the vegetables in the root cellar were getting scarce. Now what were we to do, I wondered? Would we starve, just like the starving Armenians Mother talked about all the time? It would be many weeks before we would have carrots and potatoes from the garden. Now I had something else to worry about. Back then, it seemed, I could find many issues to send me into a state of anxiousness. Mother said I was born with furrows in my brow, whatever that meant. Worrying if we had enough food to keep us alive was constantly on my mind

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories this time of year. I took my concerns to my sister Audrey. She always seemed to have an answer for everything. At first she laughed out loud when I asked her if we were about to starve since all the barrels that once held our daily sustenance were empty. Then she saw that I was sincerely worried and she took me to the old swing in the grape arbour to give me a long talk on how I was worried for nothing. At that very moment, she pointed out, wasn’t our bake table full of freshly baked bread? Weren’t there enough loaves there to last us most of the week when Mother would again bake up another batch? So there would always be sandwiches,

always bread pudding for dessert. And in the smoke house, wasn’t there slabs of back-bacon, roasts of pork and sausage links, enough to feed half of Renfrew County? “Stop worrying, Mary,” she said. “We won’t starve.” Of course, my wiser sister Audrey was quite right. Soon there were sprigs of new lettuce showing in the garden, enough to take to the dinner table and for lettuce sandwiches, which I loved with a passion. Fresh lettuce with a spattering of sugar and vinegar between two slices of buttered freshly baked bread -- now that was a treat! Then Audrey took me down into the dugout under the house. I had

told her the last time I had gone down with the dish pan to bring up vegetables for supper, I had to dig away in the sand before I found a carrot. Audrey pointed to the shelves down there that for generations held preserves and pickles. There on those shelves were enough glass jars, full of beans in brine, onions hanging in mesh bags and sealer after sealer of preserved raspberries, crab apples and wild blueberries. “Now do you think we are starving?” Audrey asked. Of course my much older and much wiser sister was right. Just because the barrels in the kitchen were empty there was still food aplenty to last us until the garden was ready. I could put my worries aside. I recalled what my father always said when he was discussing the issues of the day: “It’s a poor farmer indeed, who can’t keep food on the table to feed his family.” Although not my favourite, we had as much milk to drink as we wanted. There was always a big jug of fresh milk in the ice box and newly churned butter in glass bowls. Our hen house full of hens provided us with enough eggs for our own use with lots left over for Mother to peddle in Renfrew every Saturday morning. We could expect a chicken dinner every Sunday. Mother, long before we would set out for church, would have stuffed at least two fat birds and put them in the Findlay Oval oven. If there weren’t enough vegetables in the sand bin to tuck around the chickens, we made do with bowls of pickled beans or canned tomatoes from the cellar.

Although Father never considered it a meal, Mother had what we all called her “everything goes into it” pot of soup simmering just about constantly on the back of the stove. Hulls of vegetables, anything left over from the dinner table, scraps of meat, leftover gravy, whatever she could find went into the souppot. Father, most nights, when he

Now what were we to do, I wondered? Would we starve, just like the starving Armenians Mother talked about all the time?

wasn’t too tired from dawn to dusk working in the fields, would sit down just before he fell into bed and with a couple pieces of homemade bread sponging up the soup, ate heartily of what he called “a wee bite before turning in.” No, on thinking about it, I worried for nothing. We wouldn’t starve on the farm just because the barrels were empty. Food was all around us, and there was always Briscoe’s General Store, where we could stop for maple cookies, a couple slices of bologna and the basics like flour, tea and sugar. All we had to do was ask for it and tell Mr. Briscoe, “just put it on our bill, please.”

Animal tradition returns with new venue, events Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

News - A popular summer tradition for dog-lovers is marking a quarter century this year. The Ottawa Humane Society’s Wiggle Waggle Walkathon brings Ottawans and their four-legged friends together to raise money for the shelter along with the sick and abandoned animals it cares for. This year’s walkathon will be taking place on Sept. 8 at the event’s original location, Queen Juliana Park, adjacent to the scenery and walking trails of Dow’s Lake and the Arboretum. “We’re heading back to where it all began, 25 years ago,” said Kelly Bélair, events manager for the humane society. “We’re pretty excited about that.” Recent walkathons took place in the west end of Ottawa, meaning this year’s event gives more people an op-

portunity to show up. A section of the Queen Elizabeth Driveway will be closed to accommodate the participants. The walkathon is aiming to raise $125,000, a symbolic number in that this year marks the 125th anniversary of the Humane Society itself. This year, a number of new events and fundraising ideas have been incorporated into the special day. For dog owners with a lot of energy to burn, the inaugural Run for the Animals promises a faster pace while raising $40,000 separately from the walkathon’s total. “The run was something we’d been approached by a third party to do,” said Bélair. “We looked into it – our director of development is a runner himself – and thought it would be a good fit to the walkathon.” Despite the event being two months away, participants have already begun raising money. Among them is Lucie

Marleau, who has fundraised for the Humane Society for 24 of the past 25 years, and currently has an online donation page (Lucie Marleau/Gatineau) at walkathon2013.kintera.org The fun of the event coupled with the many odd animal sights are what keeps her coming back to the walkathon. “It’s a lot of fun and it keeps getting bigger every year,” said Marleau. “It’s the happiest place on earth.” Information on the many walkathon events and related schedule (as well as donation information) can be found at ottawahumane.ca

The annual Wiggle Waggle fundraiser for the Ottawa Humane Society is set to take place at Queen Juliana Park on Sept. 8. FILE

News - Carefor Health and Community Services is gearing up for their annual fundraiser. The charity, based on Carling Avenue in Nepean, aims to keep seniors in their homes longer. Robin Meyers, the program manager for the adult day program â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which offers activities and therapy for seniors with dementia â&#x20AC;&#x201C; said the walk is an annual fundraiser low-income clients pay for their portion of their payment to participate. The co-payment portion of the program â&#x20AC;&#x201C; also a welcome respite for caregivers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is $20 and can be a barrier for participation, Meyers said. The centre also offers a program called Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Get Together. The program is aimed at seniors with mental illnesses like anxiety and depression. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of those clients live in social housing or are on assistance and isolated,â&#x20AC;? Meyers said, adding monies raised will help to fund

that program as well. The goal for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s walk and run, set to take place at Mooneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bay on Aug. 31, is $13,000. Meyers said $3,500 towards the goal had already been raised by early July. To raise pledges for the adult day care staff that are participating in the run, volunteers will host a garage sale at the Careforâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s facility at 2576 Carling Ave on July 20. The sale will start at 9 a.m. and close at 1 p.m. with a barbecue running from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Meyer said clowns on the street across from the Lincoln Fields Shopping Centre will direct residents to the barbecue. Carefor, which started more than 100 years ago with two nurses and a buggy, offers a series of community-based programs to help seniors. Aside from the two day programs, Meyer said there are clinics available to provide injections and wound care. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those kinds of programs help to get seniors out of the hospital faster and back into their homes,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Multifaith Housing aims to open new units Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

News - An Ottawa charity received a helping hand toward its goal to open 25 new housing units for those in need. Multifaith Housing Initiative received a donation of $1,500 from the Knights of Columbus Holy Redeemer council on July 3, raised from the Knights annual Rita Maheral Memorial Charity Golf Tournament held in May. The money will go towards Multifaith’s fundraising campaign, A Place to Call Home, to raise $500,000 over a three-year period to provide an additional 25 to 30 low-cost rental units. “There is a very serious (housing) crisis,” said Rev. J. Hugh O’Donnell, a deacon at St. Isidore Roman Catholic Parish. “We are addressing the

needs here.” Multifaith is made up of people of various beliefs and religions in Ottawa and helps people “who are homeless or at risk of homelessness by providing and promoting well maintained, affordable, rental housing in a safe and neighbourly environment,” according to its website. Currently, Multifaith has three properties with a total of 41 units in Ottawa: Blake House in Vanier, Kent House in Centretown, and Somerset Gardens downtown. O’Donnell said the city needs 100 to 150 low-cost units in Ottawa to address the housing needs of the homeless or those at risk of homelessness. In Ottawa, an average of 1,200 people spends the night in a shelter. Of that, 260 are families, said O’Donnell, a Carp resident. “Fifteen-hundred children have

lived in these shelters for an average of 88 days,” he added. “We’re trying to help our people in need here in Ottawa.” Knights of Columbus golf tournament treasurer Stephen Dulude said part of the Knights’ mission is to give back. The council donated more than $21,000 to various local charities. “It’s part of our community outreach; contribute back to the community,” said the Bridlewood resident. Multifaith hasn’t found a building yet for the new units but O’Donnell said he’s confident everything will come together. “We’re quite positive about all of this,” he said. “We’re very appreciative of what the Knights did with their golf tournament.” So far, Multifaith has raised $230,000 of its $500,000 goal. For more information or to donate, visit multifaithhousing.ca.

LAURA MUELLER/METROLAND

Transit commissioner Blair Crew, left, Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson, right, and OC Transpo general manager John Manconi, back, preview the light-rail station name announcement system with proposed alterations to station names.

Public invited to weigh in on LRT station names Staff

News - OC Transpo is looking for a moniker for its version of the “tube.” Ottawa’s first light-rail system and first underground transit line, which has been dubbed “Confederation Line” while under construction, will need a permanent name. OC Transpo is also in the midst of coming up with a new name for the O-Train, as well as an overall name for Ottawa’s rail system. Think the Metro in Montreal, or London’s “tube.” Names for the 13 stations between Tunney’s Pasture and Blair will remained largely unchanged when they are converted to light rail in 2018. Six stations will remain the same, including Bay, Lees, Hurdman, St. Laurent, Cyrville and Blair. But, OC Transpo is recommending several changes: • Tunney’s Pasture will be shortened to “Tunney’s” • Downtown West will become “Kent Station.” • Downtown East will become “Parliament.” • The station under the Rideau Centre will become, predictably, “Rideau.” • “uOttawa” is being proposed for Campus station to identify which campus it serves. • Train station will become “Tremblay,” to avoid confusion with other train stations. OC Transpo is currently in discussions with the Algonquins of Ontario to rename LeBreton Station. You can weigh in with your suggestions and vote on the proposed names by July 24 by going

to www.octranpos.com. Final naming recommendations will be brought to the transit commission for approval on Aug. 21. OC Transpo’s manager of transit planning and reporting, Pat Scrimgeour, said station names need to be linked to their geographical location – preferably street names – to help passengers find their way. Fifty of the 51 transit stations in Ottawa have geographic names. OC Transpo is recommending no external advertising be allowed on the trains do to concerns about damaging the trains or “degrading” the overall light rail experience. Internal advertising in both stations and the trains themselves will be allowed, but OC Transpo is recommending the first five years of advertising be dedicated to “getting to know the system.” “Advertising and information space on the inside of vehicles and in stations (would) be dedicated solely to learning the system and enhancing the customer experience from day one,” said David Pepper, OC Transpo’s manager of business and operational services branch. “From all perspectives, (we would) focus on the issues of wayfinding, safety and public information in support of the line.” The city will also be finalizing the interior design for the trains by Aug. 21. Recommendations include clean sightlines, a “visual sense of openness” and a limited colour palate. A mockup of the trains is planned to be available for display in Ottawa next summer.

News - Dave Kunhle, grandfather of two girls who have recently been diagnosed with autism, decided he wasn’t going to sit around while they waited to start speech and occupational therapy with QuickStart, he would get on his motorcycle and start raising money. Kunhle said he participates in the annual Ride for Dad, so when his two granddaughters, Josie, 3 and Sofia, 16 months, were diagnosed with autism, he wanted to do what he could to raise money for the program that will help them develop skills and coping mechanisms. Kim Kunhle, Dave’s daughter-in-law, said Josie’s diagnosis came in January 2013. Kim and her husband Kevin, who live just outside Carleton Place, had noticed that she wasn’t meeting some of her developmental milestones. “She was having meltdowns, very similar to temper tantrums, but more severe,” Kim said. “She had started speaking and then stopped. She also stopped pointing and waving.” Kim said when her husband first broached the subject of autism, she was very resistant. “I really didn’t know anything,” she said. “I told him that it was impossible she had it; only boys get it.” They had started looking for help in May 2012, but met with resistance when their family doctor wouldn’t recommend the test for autism. Dave said when the diagnosis came, he congratulated his son and daughter-in-law, not because of the disorder, but because with answers, they could develop a plan for the future. Long waiting lists for assessments through the Ottawa Children’s Treatment Centre and even longer ones for treatment leave a lot of parents frustrated said QuickStart founder Suzanne Jacobson. And thanks in part to QuickStart’s early intervention program Kim’s youngest daughter Sofia was diagnosed in April, something Dave said was devastating. “I just saw the burden it was to raise one child with autism and to see that doubled… Kevin and Kim are my heroes,” he said, adding that he’s happy to see his granddaughters able to get the help they need. “There has been a remarkable improvement in Josie in the last six months,” Dave said. The first Motorcycle Ride for Autism is set to kick off Oct. 6 at 9 a.m. The 227-kilometre route starts at the Holiday Inn Express in Bells Corners and will take riders to Smiths Falls, Westport and Almonte before winding back to the Best Western on Robertson Road. Dave said he doesn’t have a financial goal in mind, but Ride for Dad had 57 riders in their first year.

“If we get that many I will be happy,” he said. “We should be able to raise $10,000.” Jacobson said every dollar helps. The charity, based in Kanata, started with Jacobson’s two grandsons. The first, Alexander, now nine, didn’t receive treatment for autism until he was fourand-a-half. He waited 10 months for a diagnosis and then another two years for intensive therapy. When the family began to have questions about his younger brother Nathan, they paid privately for assessment and therapy. That got things going faster and now at four, he’s fully integrated into his school. QuickStart works with parents to fast track a diagnosis and then begins speech and occupational therapy to make gains while parents wait for the intensive therapy available through the public system.

That way we can have more money going to help the children. SUZANNE JACOBSON

They use a modified applied behaviour analysis therapy called Denver therapy, that uses the principle of replacing undesired behaviour with desired, but at a level toddlers can comprehend. Even QuickStart has a wait list now though, Jacobson said, adding the ideal timeline for diagnosis is two months, and then another six weeks before therapy starts. As the number of children with autism continues to grow – the Centre for Disease Control in the United States says about one in 88 are somewhere on the autism spectrum – society will have to find ways to cope. “If we don’t find a way to deal with autism earlier in life we are going to have more cases like Amanda Telford who had to give up custody of her autistic son,” Jacobson said, referring to an Ottawa woman who left her severely autistic son at an Ontario government office. QuickStart funds itself through a series of fundraisers and donations – that’s why events like the motorcycle ride are so important. The people who work for the program are all volunteers. “That way we can have more money going to help the children,” Jacobson said.

Wildlife strategy doesn’t go far enough, opponents say with wildlife, but people from an urban area may not. The new wildlife strategy emphasizes that many human-wildlife conflicts can be prevented or solved by better understanding the dynamic. “Many conflicts result from carelessness or lack of knowledge of private citizens and public officials regarding the needs and behaviours of wildlife, especially urban wildlife. Property owners may inadvertently create the conditions that attract wildlife and put them at risk,” the proposed strategy reads. Alastaire Henderson, a Lowertown east resident who spoke to the committee, said she felt the consultation on the strategy started out with more consideration of the effects of wildlife in urban areas as well as rural areas, but became a rural-focused issue as the project drew to a close. Iola Price, a New Edinburgh resident and wildlife biologist, agreed. “The growth of trees and shrubs in urban areas … means wildlife will continue to move into the urban areas,” she said.

News - The city’s new wildlife strategy doesn’t go far enough to protect beavers before the agriculture and rural affairs committee approved it on July 4. The city has been picking away at a wildlife strategy since early 2010, when council ordered a review following a series of issues with coyotes. Since then, a number of moose have had to be destroyed and urban sprawl has introduced suburban homes to areas that have habitats for animals like wild turkeys. Liz White, spokesperson, Ontario Wildlife Coalition, said the city’s claim that he strategy will reduce the number of beaver killed is unrealistic. She sat on the working group for the wildlife strategy but resigned in 2012 over disagreements with the policy’s direction. “There are no protections for beaver in the vast majority of the city of Ottawa if you pass this strategy,” she said. TRAPPING

DO MORE

Currently, the city traps and kills around 150 beavers each year. Stow said the city could reduce the number of beavers it traps and kills by half over 10 to 15 years if it makes better use of “beaver deceivers” to protect culverts. The fences or other devices are used to block off the area of infrastructure like culverts, which the beavers tend to build dams around, damaging and flooding the culverts. But there is no funding in place to pay for those devices, which can cost between $200 and

The city’s proposed wildlife strategy seeks to reduce the number of animals that need to be caught and destroyed in the urban area, but critics charge the new guidelines don’t go far enough. $2,000, depending in the type, Stow said. The strategy proposing a “balanced and hu-

mane approach” received little vetting from about a dozen delegates who spoke to planning committee. For the most part, they focused on deficiencies in the process used to arrive at the strategy. They called for an additional public meeting. Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt urged speakers to provide substantive feedback so the committee could address if there are parts of the policy that need beefing up. There is still opportunity to make minor changes before the policy goes to council on July 17, said Nick Stow, the city planner who authored the report. He encouraged people to submit “constructive feedback.” Stow said another public meeting wouldn’t be helpful because the major issues, conflicts and solutions have been identified. Rehashing worries about beaver management, euthanasia and educational materials – the most controversial elements – would just be repetitive and not productive, Stow said. “The biggest issue is (that) we have is people from the urban area moving into the rural area,” said West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry. People who grew up in a rural area often have the basic knowledge and skills needed to deal

El-Chantiry said the city needs to do more than simply post information on a website when it comes to informing the public about what to do when they encounter wildlife. Stow said the city does put together an information package for new residents, but admitted many people probably don’t bother reading it. He said adding a wildlife resources officer would create a point person who could respond to concerns and undertake targeted education. The city will be using the wildlife strategy as direction when it other documents and educational materials that will be needed to support the strategy. Planning an urban wildlife speaker series and additional school outreach should also help spread the word about how to deal with wildlife, Stow said. City planning manager Lee Ann Snedden added that her department could write up some materials the councillors could use to help promote the strategy and offer opportunities for input to contribute to tweaking the strategy and its implementation. The city’s role is limited when it comes to dealing with conflicts between people and animals on private property. Most of that responsibility is supposed to lay with the provincial Ministry of Natural Resources. But that department has been neutered over time by incremental budget cuts, El-Chantiry said – leaving the city to pick up the slack. “In the absence of the MNR doing their job, we are trying to be nice (and) pick up the slack,” he said.

PET OF THE WEEK

Pet Adoptions

MICHOU ID#A05035

Meet Michou (ID#A050359). He is an easy-going, eight-year-old neutered male cat. This grey and white, domestic shorthair tabby was surrendered by his owner and has been at the shelter since May 27. He is looking for a new forever home. Michou is a fun-loving cat who loves to play. He’s a sweet little boy who

LANCE ID#A154622

would also be content just snuggling up in a sunny patch in his new forever home. He’s also a bit of a social butterfly who likes to make friends, so he’d make a great second cat. He gets along with everyone! Michou is declawed so he’d need to be an indoor-only pet.

Meet Lance (ID#A154622). He is a neutered male, black and white Siberian husky and akita mix. He is about two years old and was transferred to the OHS from another shelter on April 11. Lance is a smart dog who loves to keep busy. He enjoys long walks and would be happiest with an active owner. He’d really like a fenced yard with lots of space to run around. This handsome boy is also a little vain: he really likes his weekly brushings! Lance would be happiest in a home with teens and adults who can encourage him to be the best dog possible. To find out more about Michou and Lance, stop by the Adoption Centre at 245 West Hunt Club Road weekdays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Check out the OHS website at www. ottawahumane.ca to see photos and descriptions of all of the animals available for adoption, or call 613725-3166 ext 258.

This is Bianco who adopted us some years ago. He was a street resident of the Main St. Lees Ave area. He had decided that he liked our backyard and refused to go away. When no one answered our ad re “found white cat”, we named him Bianco and he very gladly moved in. The two incumbent residents Charlemagne and Josephine were not too happy at first to have a less aristocratic cat than they themselves are, move in with them, but in a short time they all became good friends. Bianco is very loveable appreciative and cuddly, and a more appropriate name would have been “my shadow”. 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
