EMC news - Being told that you suffer from an incurable form of cancer is devastating news for someone to hear. However, a Riverside Park woman with chronic blood cancer is putting a brave face on amid her struggles, bringing hope and working hard to raise money to help find cure. Fifty-year-old Lesia Maruschak is a mother of two and was a healthy, hard working public servant until 2010, when she was diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia, a cancer that typically affects men in their 60s and 70s. Since then Maruschak decided that “Live, Act, Be Grateful” would be her motto and that she would adopt a holistic means of healing, one that included her body, psyche and her spirit. “One of the first things that the hematologist that first diagnosed me told me was that – (my cancer) was in the early stages, but it is not like some of the other cancers where stage one would mean good news and the chances of survival were fantastic. ‘It doesn’t work that way with your type of cancer,’ ” she said. Maruschak is spearheading this year’s Light the Night walk to find a cure for leukemia and other blood cancers. “Cancer is a big word, a scary word. It came into my life uninvited, quietly, and unexpectedly,” said Maruschak. See RIVERSIDE, page 3

Students asked to keep the noise down Eddie Rwema Eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC news – Students living in Heron Park are being encouraged to get to know their neighbours and to treat their new community with respect. Pamphlets with information about partying, the city’s noise bylaw and garbage collection were dropped off at mailboxes in the community by Ottawa police and bylaw officers on Oct. 4. According to Capital Coun. David Chernushenko, resi-

dents are getting frustrated with the ongoing trend of people buying houses and turning them into student housing. “We have been getting concerns relating to the growing problem of noise on several streets in Heron Park and most of them had some relationship to student tenants,” said Chernushenko. The door-to-door pamphlet campaign was organized to raise awareness about municipal bylaws related to garbage, recycling, parking and property upkeep, with a focus on the major changes to the noise

bylaw. In the package was also a welcome flyer from Chernushenko that reminds students they are part of a larger community. “Heron Park is home to people from all walks of life, from students to seniors,” the flyer reads. “Get to know your community, introduce yourself to your neighbours, familiarize yourself with city services and bylaws, and enjoy all that Heron Park has to offer.” It also reminds the students to keep the noise down and to tell their neighbours in advance

if they are hosting a party. “One of the reason people fear having students’ houses is to have their neighbourhood dominated by partying activities and anti-social activities that some students engage in,” said Chernushenko. “The more students’ houses you get the higher the number of people that will become disruptive.” He said the campaign was initiated to try to get on top of the issue before it becomes a serious problem.

“We thought it would be useful to produce a flyer welcoming the students at the same time letting them know of their rights and responsibilities,” he said. “For many people, the neighbourhood is their home and when they feel invaded in a given year by a particular group, they (worry about) everything from not being able to sleep to worrying whether it is safe to confront noisy partiers.” Chernushenko added that uncontrolled noise can eat away the community’s sense of well-being and people’s pride in their neighbourhood. “The earlier you can intervene and make students know what we consider a good or a bad neighbour, the better,” he said. Similar initiatives have been introduced to other parts of the city like Sandy Hill to try to improve relationships between

students and other residents. Const. Heather Cooper, Ottawa South’s community police officer, said noise issues in Heron Park were new to them, but said they were following them closely. “We didn’t have any idea that there was an issue with the student housing and loud partying and keeping people up until a recent meeting with the community in Heron Park,” she said. “This is very new to us; we had no idea it was an issue and we are now keeping it our radar.” The new, amended noise bylaw now makes it an offence to cause or permit excess noise. With the recent bylaw changes, tickets are now issued to the tenants whose names are on the lease of the residence where the disturbance is occurring. As a result, tickets are easier to issue, with violations becoming a very real and expensive proposition for any student living in the neighbourhood.

A graduate of the University of Saskatchewan and the University of Ottawa, Maruschak worked for the federal public service for most of her professional life, until her life was suddenly thrown into turmoil in November of 2010, when she discovered she had cancer. “That becomes one of the most difficult things to cope with,� she said. Regardless, she said the disease has offered her the opportunity to choose what was most important in her life and to put it first and how she defines her priorities. “There is no medical treatment to pursue at this time,� said Maruschak. She said she has been very fortunate to have a supporting family and she has been strong spiritually and that has helped her cope. “When I was diagnosed, I realized that I was definitely less interested in just doing and achieving things,� Maruschak said. “The very quiet and the very simple things became important to me. “My religious side, which is a very personal thing, be-

Understandably, some residents have reservations about the upcoming changes and have expressed the view that bi-weekly garbage collection may be problematic during the summer months. As a result of these concerns, I wanted to bring to your attention that I had supported a motion for the continuation of weekly garbage collection during the warmer months of the year including June, July, and August. Unfortunately, this motion was not supported by Council.

For more information on the changes happening on October 29th please visit the Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website at ottawa.ca or phone 3-1-1.

Beginning October 29th the City of Ottawa will change the method of garbage collection to bi-weekly (every two weeks). The green bin will be picked up every week and blue and black box collection will continue to alternate from week to week. The City estimates that the switch to bi-weekly garbage will save taxpayers $9-$10 million dollars annually and help extend the life of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s landďŹ ll, which would cost the City an estimated $250 million dollars to replace. Additionally, the City has acquired 22 dual stream collection trucks which are able to pick up green bin and blue or black box materials at the same time. This change will result in fewer trucks on the road.

s Electronics and Hazardous Drop Off â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Throughout the year the City of Ottawa hosts one-day depots where household hazardous waste or electronics can be dropped off. The next waste depot is Saturday, October 13, 2012 at the Rideau Carleton Raceway located at 4837 Albion Road.

The Light The Night walk is Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s night to pay tribute and bring hope to all those affected by blood cancer. On Oct. 13, Maruschak will join thousands of people walking in twilight carrying illuminated balloons from the Marion Dewar Plaza outside city hall to Pretoria Bridge and back. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The campaign has been phenomenal to me, because I face an incurable cancer and I know the only way we are going to arrive at a cure is research and research comes about through funding,â&#x20AC;? she said. Last year, Maruschak and her team members had a goal of raising $2,500, but at the end of that campaign they had more than $30,000. Her formal goal this year is raising $20,000 as a team and $15,000 personally. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By engaging a group of people in trying to do something in common good has brought a lot of meaning to peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lives when they are in situations that are very dif-

Alta Vista Coun. Peter Hume hands out leaflets with tips for motorists during a speed blitz on Blair Street on Oct. 3.

Peter Hume leads speed blitz in Alta Vista Eddie Rwema eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC news - Nervous residents concerned about motorists speeding in their neighbourhoods joined Alta Vista Coun. Peter Hume in a speed blitz on three streets identified as problems in the ward. The blitz consisted of three checkpoints on Arch Street and Featherston Drive in Alta Vista and on Blair Street in Riverview Park and was meant to engage drivers and encourage them to drive with care. â&#x20AC;&#x153;During rush hour speeding is sometimes scary,â&#x20AC;? said Kirsty Morrison, a mother of an eight-month-old baby residing on Blair Street. The speeding blitz is the latest step in Humeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safe streets initiative. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to be paying attention and they

donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember that we have children in this neighbourhood,â&#x20AC;? said Morrison. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They should treat every residential street as if it is (their) own street. They need to drive in a safe manner.â&#x20AC;? The safe streets initiative responds to traffic concerns brought forward by Alta Vista residents, and the blitz is the next step in addressing these concerns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a combination of a summer-long program looking at streets in our neighbourhoods and trying to promote safe driving and respecting speed limits,â&#x20AC;? said Hume. By setting up three blitz checkpoints, Hume and his team were hoping to connect with drivers on the road, and highlight the importance of speed and safety. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most drivers arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t trying to maliciously commit er-

and remind people of an important message: drive with care.â&#x20AC;? Carole Moult, who is a board member of the Riverview Park Community Association and lives on Blair Street, said the campaign is important given the level of speeding happening on her street. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is quite (a lot) of speeding on this street. People tend to use our street when dropping off their children to schools and on their way back, they are anxious to get to the neighbouring Tim Hortons,â&#x20AC;? said Moult. She said speeding has been an issue of concern in the neighbourhood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are really concerned about the speeding, because we see a lot of it, and I am pleased the councillor picked it up for us,â&#x20AC;? she said.

He said the blitz was brought about to help raise awareness about speeding and aggressive driving. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What we hope to achieve is for people to understand that there are people that live in these neighbourhoods and travelling above speed limits and (driving) aggressively is a real problem,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They need to respect speed limits and the communities in which they are driving.

Councillors want to gamble on casino laura.mueller@metroland.com

Despite the support of the mayor and all but one of the city councillors on the ďŹ nance committee, almost all of the 32 members of the public who spoke to the committee on Oct. 2 said the push for a casino was too hasty and not based on any evidence of the potential beneďŹ ts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or consequences â&#x20AC;&#x201C; of a new casino in Ottawa. Adam Awad questioned why the committee would consider approving the idea of a casino before receiving any evidence for or against it. Watson said city council needs to decide whether it wants to head down that road before it charges staff with researching the impacts and beneďŹ ts of a casino. Liam Mooney, spokesperson for a new casino-focused community group called A Better Bet, said the group is most concerned that the process is being rushed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This matters to people. You need to consider what people are saying,â&#x20AC;? Mooney said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Take the time. Do not

Ottawa council may vote to approve a casino, possibly downtown. rush into this.â&#x20AC;? A couple delegates were in favour of pursuing a casino, including Noel Buckley of Ottawa Tourism. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Increasing the variety of attractions in the cityâ&#x20AC;Ś will help attract more visitors,â&#x20AC;? he said. Longtime casino critic Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans was the only committee member to oppose the move. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like being asked to support something in principle without having the evidence,â&#x20AC;? she said, pointing out that all public delegates without a ďŹ nancial stake in the matter opposed an Ottawa casino. But Watson said the â&#x20AC;&#x153;horse is already out of the stableâ&#x20AC;? on that argument, because gambling already exists in the capital, both at the slots at Rideau Carleton Raceway, and at Lac Leamy Casino across the river in Gatineau â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not to mention lottery ticket sales and even church bingos, he said. Repatriating some casino revenue that currently goes to the Quebec government

through Lac Leamy would boost gambling addiction treatment in Ontario and add money to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coffers to help pay for things like infrastructure renewal, Watson said. The mayor emphasized that the Oct. 10 decision would merely kick off the process, and there will be ample opportunity for public input and research as the process moves forward. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;noâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; at this early stage is irresponsible,â&#x20AC;? Watson said. Watson and other councillors, including planning committee chairman Coun. Peter Hume downplayed the impact of agreeing in principle to investigate a casino. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have already said within the bounds of the City of Ottawa that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d accept gaming,â&#x20AC;? through slots and gaming tables at the raceway, Hume said. But Deans said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a slippery slope. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once you support something, how do you back up?â&#x20AC;? she asked.

EMC news - After repeatedly saying that he would prefer to see a new casino in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s core, Mayor Jim Watson backed a bid to ask the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Commission to consider a casino expansion at the Rideau-Carleton Raceway. On Oct. 2, the ďŹ nance and economic development committee indicated it supports in principle the idea of looking at bringing a new casino to Ottawa. Full city council would also have to endorse the move on Oct. 10, after this newspaperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deadline. While the mayor spent the week before the Oct. 2 meeting insisting he would prefer to see a casino downtown with access to transit, he backed a motion from Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson to ensure the Albion Road racetrack is automatically considered for expansion into a casino. But the mayor couched his support of the raceway motion by saying it â&#x20AC;&#x153;sends a very clear signal that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not asking for preferential treatment, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re asking for fairness.â&#x20AC;? Rideau-Carleton will celebrate its 50th birthday this fall and has been home to 1,275 slot machines for the past 12 years. It faces closure after OLG decided to cancel its slots at the racetrack program. Alex Lawryk, a representative for the raceway owners, said Rideau-Carleton intends to put in a bid to expand its facility into a casino. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are also ready to propose a compelling gaming model and program â&#x20AC;Śto continue to serve Ottawa in a responsible manner,â&#x20AC;? Lawryk told the committee. OLG kicked off the debate

in August by indicating it wants to â&#x20AC;&#x153;modernizeâ&#x20AC;? gambling in Ontario, including a plan to ďŹ nd private developers to build casinos in each of 29 zones across the province. OLG will be asking for proposals from potential casino developers early in 2013. The OLG hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t said what the revenue-sharing agreement would be for new casinos or how much Ottawa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or another eastern-Ontario municipality â&#x20AC;&#x201C; could stand to gain from welcoming a casino. The city receives about $4 million a year in revenue from the raceway slots, but the province is cancelling that program.

City to Acquire and Protect Woodlots in Riverside South

jessica.cunha@metroland.com

I am pleased to advise residents that the City of Ottawa has come to an agreement with Urbandale Corporation to acquire two Woodlots in the Riverside South community.

EMC news - More than 1,000 people faced the chilly wind and drizzling rain to run the track at the Rideau Carleton Raceway on Sunday, Sept. 30, to raise funds for brain cancer research and put an end to the deadly disease. The inaugural South Ottawa Race Day raised more than $80,000 as of midday on Sunday. “We were completely overwhelmed by the community’s response,” said Chris Hill, one of the organizers. “This particular disease touches a lot of people. “I think the brain cancer community was looking for a voice and I think they found it in this race. There were a whole bunch of people who had stories to tell. It was unbelievable, the number of people who had been affected and were looking for a way to get involved, and the way they rallied around this common story.” Barrhaven resident Leslie McCarthy was honoured during the closing ceremonies for raising $5,200, the most by an individual. McCarthy didn’t know Greely resident Heather Geddie, who was the catalyst for the event, but was driven to do her part after being diagnosed with thyroid cancer just a few weeks before the race. “This meant a lot to me,” she said. McCarthy was joined by her husband Chris Levac and their two daughters, Maddison and Charlie Rose.

The first woodlot is located north of Earl Armstrong, east of Sandy Forest and west of Canyon Walk Drive. The second woodlot is located south of Earl Armstrong and east of Spratt Road on the currently undeveloped lands. This is a positive development and helps ensure that the community has a balance of housing, retail, employment, parks and green features. I am pleased that these woodlots will be protected and residents adjacent to the woodlots will be relieved to learn that the woodlots will not be subject to future development. This is a major investment for the City of Ottawa and is keeping with our goals to have a clean and green city. For more information, please contact my office. 2013 Draft Budget Consultations I encourage residents to get involved in the 2013 Budget consultations. The City of Ottawa would like to hear your feedback regarding projects that you want considered for the 2013 city budget. To engage the public before budget tabling, a special e-mail address has been created, budget2013@ottawa.ca. Residents are encouraged to make their voices heard and to participate immediately. All suggestions shared that can be incorporated into the budget will be provided to management before tabling and identified to Council as part of the Draft Budget report. A public meeting for residents in South Ottawa will be held on Monday, October 29th from 7:00-9:00pm at the Nepean Sportsplex Hall A, 1701 Woodroffe Avenue. Riverside South Rapid Transit Environmental Assessment Public Open House I would like to thank all residents who came out to the Public Open House for information on the plans for the future Riverside South Rapid Transit Service. As you may know, the City of Ottawa has initiated a Planning and Environmental Assessment (EA) Study to define a bus rapid transit corridor from Greenbank Road (Barrhaven) to Leitrim Road (Riverside South). City representatives were on hand to provide residents information on the future plans and obtain your feedback into the planning and design of this facility. I enjoyed the opportunity to meet with residents in Riverside South to discuss this important project for the future rapid transit plans in the area.

RACE DAY

Greely resident and Earl of March Secondary School graduate Heather Geddie was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumour in 2009. She fought the disease for two years before passing away in July 2011. Members of the com-

Leslie McCarthy, second from right, was honoured for raising $5,200, the most funds raised by an individual at the inaugural South Ottawa Race Day on Sept. 30. McCarthy, who was recently diagnosed with thyroid cancer, was joined by her husband Chris Levac and their two daughters, Maddison, left, and Charlie Rose. munity were so inspired by Geddie’s positive attitude that after her death they decided to host the South Ottawa Race Day to fundraise for brain cancer research. “What an accomplishment for a first-year event,” said Peter Linkletter, chair of the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation and a resident of Findlay Creek. He said he’s “very touched and very proud” at how the community rallied to support the cause, adding participants came from as far away as Nova Scotia and Winnipeg. “The outpouring of love and support…we knew we’d never be able to thank people enough,” said Geddie’s husband, Kevin.

“I would like to see others who have to travel this same road find a happier destination.” Kevin, who sang a rendition of Louis Armstrong’s What a Wonderful World, with the Manotick Village Singers, presented Coburg resident Danielle Provost with the Heather Geddie Community Action Award. Provost, who is undergoing a battle similar to Geddie’s, said “it was wonderful to see all the beautiful people.” Geddie’s parents, Don and Pat White, said it was incredible that their daughter inspired such an event. “She would be overjoyed,” said Don. “She will help us find a cure.”

How to Avoid 9 Common Buyer Traps BEFORE Buying a Home

Be Prepared for Upcoming changes to Waste Collection

Remember - Please in Our Community!

Your Community Newspaper

Ottawa & Area - Buying a home is a major investment no matter which way you look at it. But for many homebuyers, it’s an even more expensive process than it needs to be because many fall prey to at least a few of the many common and costly mistakes which trap them into either paying too much for the home they want, or losing their dream home to another buyer or, worse, buying the wrong home for their needs. A systemized approach to the homebuying process can help you steer clear of these common traps, allowing you to not only cut costs, but also buy the home that’s best for you. An industry report

Hill said he hopes the South Ottawa Race Day becomes “one of the key events in the Ottawa race series, and that runners start to mark it in their calendars.” The original fundraising goal of the inaugural race was set at $50,000, a number that was quickly surpassed thanks to the efforts of all those involved. A new target of $75,000 was also exceeded, with the total coming in at more than $80,000 in funds raised. “This will allow us to support innovative research,” said Hill. “What came across loud and clear is that there are really not a lot of treatment options. Sometimes the treatments are worse than the disease.” The two-kilometre family walk/run around the oval was “unbelievably popular,” he said, adding the organizing team is looking at making that a highlight of next year’s event. “It allowed people in various stages of their fight to walk it,” said Hill, adding they are looking at continuing the half-marathon relay. “I have never been touched by this particular disease and through my involvement what strikes me is the prevalence of the disease and the extent to which those who have been impacted were looking for a voice,” he said. “We’re still on a bit of a high. We’re completely overwhelmed by the response of the community.” With files from Emma Jackson

4 Ping Pong fundraiser beats goal LAURA MUELLER/METROLAND

PLAYS $76

Sandy Hill resident Rachel Burgess is cheered on by her Cinnamon Toast New Media teammates at the Spin Bin (the Cabin) in Ottawa’s ByWard Market for the Ottawa Charity Ping Pong event on Sept. 28. The third-annual event smashed its original fundraising goal of $10,000 by raising $26,000 for four local charities: Christie Lake Kids, Operation Come Home, the Youth Services Bureau and Do It For Daron.

EMC news - A recent ping pong fundraiser in the Byward Market was a resounding success when organizers announced the event doubled its original goal. More than 250 people played a little ping pong for charity on Sept. 28 at the third Ottawa Charity Ping Pong Tournament at the SpinBin located at 310 Dalhousie St. The event was held in support of four charities: Do it for Daron, the Youth Services Bureau, Operation Come Home and Christie Lake Kids. After covering some overhead costs, Michael Kirkpatrick, organizer and treasurer for the event, announced each charity will receive $5,000. “The real winners here are the charities,” he said. “This event was all about raising their profiles and raising money for them. That was what it

was sporting their best ping pong outfits for the fun-filled event. The event was for charity, but there were three master table tennis players who walked away winners: Bence Csaba, Jebeur Fathally and Laine Silver. Each beat out the other players to win the top three prizes of the night. Silver later told Kirkpatrick the evening made her feel like a child again, playing ping pong in her parents’ basement. Silver added her brother, who lives in Newfoundland, would be making the trip to Ottawa next year to attend the event. Kirkpatrick said the event was such as success thanks to his friends and fellow organizers: Tristan Hanington from K6 Media who helped with promotion, Wendy Leung from Beyond Events, and Verdun Windows and Doors for offering to be the event’s title sponsor.

This year, organizers had aimed to raise $10,000, but surpassed that goal by $16,000. “It really was amazing,” he said. The event offered ping pong enthusiasts a chance to compete for prizes, but the real goal, Kirkpatrick said, was to have fun. “I think the best thing was it was nice to see everyone come together to help raise money for the event, it was great we managed to make it happen,” Kirkpatrick said.

Preparing for Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vital green-bin change

C

hances are your garbage day is changing Oct. 29. If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still going to have to get used to differences in the way trash is collected. For one thing, garbage will only be picked up every two weeks, while green bin materials will be collected weekly. Just shy of 160,000 households will soon get a letter telling them their garbage day is changing and letting

them know that text message, email and Twitter alerts are available for residents by signing up on the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s collection calendar web page. Typically, changing the way someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trash is collected is enough to start a public uproar. Residents were unusually quiet last year when the city held public meetings about waste collection, but you can expect the outcry to get louder as the date of the changes draws closer.

But we hope that cooler heads prevail. Is taking out a green bin instead of a garbage bag every week such an onerous task? The benefits of diverting that recyclable organic waste away from the landfill cannot be overstated. Besides building the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new light-rail system, closing a landfill and finding somewhere else to bury our garbage would be the most expensive thing this city would ever have to do.

Currently, 42 per cent of household waste is diverted from the landfill through green, blue and black bin recycling. The switch would push the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s organics diversion rate up by 50 per cent (about 40,000 tonnes), incrementally closer to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal of 60 per cent before the waste collection contract is renewed in 2016. Places like Sweden have loftier goals. That country already diverts 80 per cent of its waste away from landfills.

Complaints about the â&#x20AC;&#x153;messâ&#x20AC;? of green bins abound, but we have to wonder if those people realize that messy waste would still have to go into their garbage bags if they chose not to put it in their green bin. For every person who has given up on recycling organic waste because they found maggots in their bin, there is another person who has never faced that problem because they learned to freeze meat waste and put it into the bin

on pickup day. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website, ottawa.ca/greenbin, is full of other common-sense tips to make the process cleaner and easier. Starting Oct. 29, people who choose to put their organic waste in the trash instead of the green bin will just have an extra week for it to decompose and cause odour. Or, they can simply put it into a different bin. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a matter of being willing to adapt.

Our civic gambling addiction CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

N

ew irritations are added to our lives every day. The latest is the fact that lottery tickets are on sale virtually everywhere and everywhere you go people in front of you are buying lottery tickets, while you wait and wait. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a magazine or chocolate bar or a package of razor blades to pay for and you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it because the guy in front of you keeps buying tickets and winning more tickets and buying more tickets and winning again. The guy could be spending his money on something that could be improving the quality of his familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life. Then he wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be standing at the cash clogging things up for everybody else. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Winner! Gagnant!,â&#x20AC;? the machine keeps exclaiming, way too cheerfully, while he keeps buying more tickets with his â&#x20AC;&#x153;winningsâ&#x20AC;? and while you mutter under your breath about the decline of civilization and wonder if you should start ordering your razor blades online. In such small ways does gambling make life miserable for innocent bystanders. People are addicted to lottery tickets; stores are addicted to selling them. But before you spend too much time condemning these clients of the gambling industry, take a minute to look at whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s setting the example for them. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right. Our governments â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as hooked on gambling as the unsmiling slot-machine feeders you see in the casinos. Exhibit A: The mayor of Ottawa and the city council â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or at least most members of it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; drooling over the prospect of a big shiny casino being located downtown somewhere

(and just incidentally helping to doom the horse racing industry when the slots are taken away from the race track). The mayor and council could be spending time, not to mention money, on ways to improve the lives of their constituents. Think of infrastructure, roads that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cave in, neighbourhoods that work, transit, traffic congestion. Instead, they are standing at the counter, waiting for the lottery ticket to pay off. Carrying the metaphor to its logical conclusion, taxpayers are the ones behind the counter making the decision. Is the casino a winner or not? We can decide that, either by encouraging the mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s casino dream or by frightening him off it. The final council decision will take quite a bit of time and the mayor did not get where he is today by not listening to people. So the question is, does the casino pay off for us? How does it pay off? Do tourists flock to Ottawa? Remember that some casinos in border cities have been doing badly. Do customers of the casino in Gatineau flock back? Do the customers drop big money in local restaurants and stores or do they just stay in the casino? Are there big tax revenues to be had? Are casinos an adornment to the downtown landscape or a drag on it? No one actually knows. All we really know is that gambling addiction is on the rise, with lots of social costs and that a new casino is certainly not going to reduce those. We have learned, from years of watching the industry develop, that there is nothing classy about casinos. We know that casinos are not really for the high-end, fashionably dressed tourists you see in the advertisements. They are also for people who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to gamble. Are we doing those people a favour by making it more convenient for them to lose their money? Are we doing the city a favour by doing this? Those questions donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to concern the mayor and most of the councillors as they stand at the counter waiting for the machine to tell them they are winners, while the rest of us stand impatiently behind wanting them to move on and do something useful.

Time for a national discussion BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse in Harperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cabinet â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including Rona Ambrose, minister for the Status of Women, who evidently wanted to â&#x20AC;&#x153;strip away womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reproductive rights in Canada.â&#x20AC;? A poster circulated widely on social media sites stated, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Minister for the Status of Women just voted to criminalize abortion.â&#x20AC;? Mainstream media outlets claimed the Conservatives were â&#x20AC;&#x153;re-opening the abortion law debate in Canada.â&#x20AC;? Evidently, people failed to read the nuance of this story. For one thing, Canada has no abortion law â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we have a vacuum -- so â&#x20AC;&#x153;re-opening the abortion law debateâ&#x20AC;? is a misnomer. For another, Ambrose voted in favour of striking a committee to re-examine the deďŹ nition of child under the law, which is hardly a vote to criminalize abortion. Finally, as far as I can tell, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never had a debate on abortion in this country, at least not since the 1960s â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and certainly not within the lifetimes of women who would currently be affected by such a discussion. In the interest of full

disclosure, I qualify as neither anti-abortion nor pro-choice. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always been rather wishywashy on the subject of abortion. On the one hand, I think women should have some say on whether or not to carry a baby to term, particularly in cases where there has been abuse or where a woman is not positioned to care for a baby for a wide variety of reasons and of course where there is a medical reason. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve supported slightly less than a handful of girlfriends as theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made the choice to abort or not and I like to think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done so without judgment. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve also been a consistent supporter of stem cell research. On the other hand, having been through three pregnancies myself, I believe there is a point where the fetus should qualify as a child under the law. At some point, the right of the fetus must be equivalent or greater than mine, as a woman. What that point is remains a huge grey area for me and, I would wager, for

most Canadians. Ultimately, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a shame that MPs, including the prime minister, voted against a motion that may have helped to clarify this issue. This is not merely an issue of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Christian right.â&#x20AC;? If their voices seem the loudest, perhaps itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because they have stronger convictions. If pro-choice representatives in Parliament feel so strongly about womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rights, let them be brave enough to raise the issue in the House, create a law and put the issue to bed once and for all. Because, in the absence of a law, we are left with empty rhetoric. Do we prefer a Canada where pro-choice advocates feel comfortable overtly defaming cabinet ministers, suggesting â&#x20AC;&#x201C; mistakenly â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that they would see a return to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;backroom butcherâ&#x20AC;? type of abortions that occurred in Canada prior to 1969? On the ďŹ&#x201A;ip side, do we want anti-abortion protesters to gather at busy intersections â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as they did at Montreal Road and St. Laurent Boulevard last week with placards reading â&#x20AC;&#x153;stop killing babiesâ&#x20AC;?? This helps no one and hurts many. The empty rhetoric should be replaced by a national conversation. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talk about it and see if we can ďŹ gure out, under the law, our collective values on abortion, grounded in science and ethics.

October is Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Month voice, in our community.

prevention of abuse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People feel itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to infringe on parental rights and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re naturally hesitant to involve themselves,â&#x20AC;? says Barbara MacKinnon, executive director of the CAS of Ottawa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When reporting to

anada has no abortion law. I ďŹ nd this troubling. In 1969, the Liberal government of Pierre Trudeau decriminalized abortion. Abortions could occur, providing a committee of doctors deemed it necessary for a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health. In 1988, the Supreme Court ruled that caveat within the law was unconstitutional and cancelled the law, ultimately punting it back to Parliament to create a new law. Parliament never did, so Canada has no abortion law. All Canada has is a deďŹ nition of child, which states that a child is not considered a human being until it has exited the womb. Unlike other Western countries, which have determined restrictions on abortion â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including gestational age limits â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in Canada, it is perfectly legal for a woman to abort a baby at full-term, rather than to deliver it. Because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something wrong with this. Two weeks ago, Conservative MP Stephen Woodworth put forth a motion asking to strike a parliamentary committee to review the deďŹ nition of child under Canadian law. The motion was defeated. What followed was a media frenzy, pouncing on the â&#x20AC;&#x153;rightwing Christian Conservativesâ&#x20AC;?

City puts kennel rules on ice after uproar Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

agreed. She was satisfied that the change would allow multiple-dog ownership for a sport like hers, which involves dogs pulling people on skis. VETS EXEMPT

City staff came under fire from the audience of more than 100 people for exempting veterinarians from the kennel rules. Patrick Hunt, who breeds Irish setters in North Gower, received applause when he said the vet exemption needs to be fixed. Many veterinary clinics operate a boarding kennel as a side business, but they are not required to get a licence or pay a fee for that kennel, and the new rules would continue that exemption. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be exempt because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re professionals,â&#x20AC;? he said. City bylaw chief Linda Anderson said boarding operations at vet clinics are â&#x20AC;&#x153;traditionallyâ&#x20AC;? used to house animals after operations, or for temporary care of animal patients. That declaration elicited a loud boo from the crowd, and with direction from the committee, Anderson said she would take another look at that aspect of the rules. The new policies have been in the works since 2009.

The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed rules to regulate kennels and in-home breeders of cats and dogs drew harsh criticism on Oct. 4 and led a committee to delay a decision until December. R0011650589

EMC news - The city would be asking many rural dog owners to fly under the radar if it passes new kennel and breeding rules, one resident says. Kinburn resident Tim Pychyl was one of more than 20 residents who came to the Greely Community Centre on Oct. 4 to poke holes in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s draft rules regulating the boarding and breeding of dogs and cats. There were so many complaints and a hefty five proposed changes to the bylaw that West CarletonMarch Coun. Eli El-Chantiry asked to have the entire matter deferred to a later date. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe we should be making policy on the fly,â&#x20AC;? El Chantiry said. The agriculture and rural affairs committee will revisit the matter on Dec. 6 after city staff revises the rules. Pychyl, who owns eight sled dogs, pleaded with the committee to include people like him â&#x20AC;&#x201C; recreational pet owners who have more than three dogs. Under the proposed rules, people who have more than three dogs or five cats for breeding or showing must ap-

ply for a new permit: an inhome breeding licence. There is a separate licence proposed for commercial kennels or boarding operations. A last-minute change was proposed to address Pychylâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concern and allow people who own a larger number of pets for recreational reasons, including sledding or agility, to apply for an in-home breeding licence, but Pychyl said thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not good enough. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a principle thing,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about being part of a city that understands what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing.â&#x20AC;? If the city is drafting new rules in order to clean up the different regulations from former municipalities, it should be done right and be inclusive of all citizens, Pychyl said. While Pychyl has always obtained a kennel licence for his dogs, many other citizens in his situation donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bother because their type of dog ownership isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recognized by the rules. Continuing the practice of refusing to recognize sport and recreational dog ownership in numbers larger than three would encourage those owners to continue to fly under the radar, Pychyl said.

City looking to let ATVs on Osgoode road allowances laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - ATVs on unopened roads are nothing new, but a local group wants to be the first to make the practice official. Ottawa members of the Nation Valley ATV Club have been successful in lobbying rural city councillors to support putting together a pilot project to let all-terrain vehicles use trails in Osgoode that are technically unopened road allowances, as well as the shoulders of some roads. The trial period is still a ways off – city staff must research whether it’s a good idea and talk to residents in the community to find out what they think. But the eventual goal is to allow the club to use and maintain the trails for about two years. After that, city council could look at making the arrangement permanent or even expanding it to other areas in the city. “For over 133 years, nobody has used them,” said Kris Gough, a Greely resident who is leading the charge. “We want to be the first to come ahead, open them up and let all residents … use it. “It’s city-owned property and I think the city residents should be using it,” he added. The road allowances would be open for ATVs and recreational users such as off-road cyclists or horse riders, but “specialty vehicles” such as dirt bikes and dune buggies would be prohibited. Unofficially, though, Gough said the road allowances have been used “forever,” but the city requires a club to go through the process of getting a bylaw passed in order to officially be allowed to use it. “I think this is an important step

forward,” said Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson. “If we don’t do it, we are going to have more problems in the future.” “If it’s official … then we can maintain the trail, sign it and make it safe,” Gough said. “Right now, when a tree falls down, nobody cleans it up. We’re going to maintain them and open them up.” The Nation Valley club currently has 15 wardens who patrol its trails, mainly south of the city, and it already owns equipment that can be used to maintain the trails. Overall, the club spends $15,000 a year to maintain all of its trails. Club president Dave Baker said the club will probably end up spending $1,000 on wayfinding signs for the Ottawa trails. The club raises money through selling trail passes, running rallies and finding sponsors. Gough and other local ATVers tried to get the city to allow ATVs on a multi-use pathway two years ago, but were unsuccessful. “When we lost the multi-use pathway debate, we regrouped and really thought about what we wanted and we realized these unopened road allowances are what we wanted,” Gough said. While pathways are mostly flat and smooth, road allowances are more rugged and better suited to ATV use. “It’s not a safety issue, it just comes down to enjoyment,” he said. “This is a lot more enjoyable than a flat, straight surface.” ATVS ON ROADS

There are areas where ATV riders would have to use road shoulders to get to the next trail. At the mo-

said. “But to do that, we need a trail backbone in place and then we can approach private land owners.” City staff will be studying the proposed map and asking Osgoode residents what they think, but for the most part, Gough said the trails aren’t close to any homes. NUMBERS UP

FILE

The Nation Valley ATV Club would like to see a a pilot project to let allterrain vehicles use trails in Osgoode that are technically unopened road allowances, as well as the shoulders of some roads. ment, ATVs are only legally allowed to cross roads at 90-degree angles – not drive alongside them. The ATV club has proposed a trail and shoulder network that includes shoulders along Cabin Road between Doyle Road and Manotick Station Road,

and Manotick Station Road between Cabin Road and Springhill Road, and a couple other small links along roadsides. “However, our goal is to get off of all the roads. We don’t really want to ride on the sides of roads,” Gough

The project is expected to increase the number of ATVs on city road allowances. “Hopefully a lot of people who didn’t know they were here will come out,” Gough said. Stittsville Coun. Shad Qadri wants city staff to pay special attention to how the bylaw would be enforced in areas like his, where rural and urban sections of the city meet. “How do we control the renegades in that kind of scenario?” Qadri asked. If everything goes well, the club hopes to follow the example of what it did in Winchester and expand the local trail network. “We have these problems now,” said West-Carleton March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry. “Maybe we should be looking at a wider scope. This will not be the end of it.” Eventually, the Ottawa members of the club might look at breaking off and forming their own club, but for now, they are a chapter of the Nation Valley group. The club has about 150 members and almost half of them reside in the city of Ottawa. The city will announce public consultations soon.

Archville â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;ground zeroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for intensification woes: residents

River Ward City Councillor Conseillère, quartier Rivière

Significant Milestone on the Airport Parkway Pedestrian/Cycling Bridge On October 5, 2012, workers removed the formwork from the main tower of the Airport Parkway Pedestrian/Cycling Bridge and I am pleased to report that the concrete is in excellent condition. This marks a significant milestone toward completion of this important community connection.

Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

The concrete for the west span was successfully poured on October 4, 2012 and landscaping continues to take place along the pathways. Construction on the upper portion of the main tower will begin shortly. Next steps include constructing the bridge deck, installing outstanding light poles, paving the pathways and all other miscellaneous construction activities. During the next phase of construction, while the contractor builds the formwork crossing the Airport Parkway and while the concrete for the bridge deck is poured, there will be a period of time when traffic on the parkway is heavily impacted. The timing of this work will be communicated through public service announcements and via social media. You can also visit my website at MariaMcRae.ca, signup for my e-newsletter, or follow me on Twitter @ CouncillorMcRae for updates on this project. I continue to closely monitor progress on this project to ensure that this connection is safe and is built to the highest quality standards. Thank you again for your patience during construction. Solid Waste Collection Day Change Letters Beginning the week of October 8, 2012, if your solid waste collection day is changing, you will receive a personalized letter in the mail confirming your new collection day. Some residents will also receive an extra collection day on Saturday, November 3, 2012 as a result of the new collection schedule. Your new collection schedule can also be accessed online at ottawa.ca.

Aging homes in Old Ottawa Eastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Archville neighbourhood are under increasing redevelopment pressure and could be torn down and replaced with three-storey triplexes, to the chagrin of many residents in the community. dysfunctional. It wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work,â&#x20AC;? said Old Ottawa East resident John Engeland. Problems like a lack of parking compound as intensification occurs beyond what the city was expecting and spot rezonings only make it worse, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had it,â&#x20AC;? Engeland said, to another round of applause. Even the area councillor, Capital Coun. David Chernushenko, agreed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a radical change â&#x20AC;Ś beyond what anyone was expecting,â&#x20AC;? he told the crowd, adding that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highly unlikely all Chestnut Street or Archville properties would actually be redeveloped to that intensity. Still, it would be allowed, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what leaves Burrows uncomfortable.

He said he would rather see â&#x20AC;&#x153;green intensificationâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; more people living in the neighbourhood without trading off green space. Encouraging or requiring front yards and back yards and keeping mature trees instead of making way for parking are all key parts in attracting a mix of neighbours that includes a cross section of families and other residents, including university students. Putting in minor zoning restrictions might bring the potential increase in the number of residents down to 300 per cent from the 400 per cent possible now, Burrows said, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s acceptable. Residents at the meeting, including representatives from the Old Ottawa East Community Association, echoed Burrowsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; wishes.

Stephen Pope, a board member of the community association, requested that the councillor look into what might be done to take certain allowances out of the zoning, such as forbidding triplexes but not changing the building height limit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It might be a less contentious thing than trying to reduce the height,â&#x20AC;? Pope said. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something he could look into, Chernushenko said. It could mimic a pilot project thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taking place in Sandy Hill to help the city have better oversight of homes being converted into multi-unit dwellings, often due to demand for housing for University of Ottawa students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The best I can do for you right now is say I feel for you â&#x20AC;Ś Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m being as honest as I can be,â&#x20AC;? Chernushenko said.

EMC news - Archville is set to become â&#x20AC;&#x153;ground zeroâ&#x20AC;? for infill in Ottawa, residents say. The small community of modest post-war bungalows has stood unchanged in the shadow of Lees Avenue apartment towers until recently, but redevelopment pressure is mounting. Like many property owners, residents in the small section of Old Ottawa East didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize what the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s zoning rules allow to be built on their lots. Now, with a three-storey, nine-unit triplex rising on Chestnut Street, neighbours are worried. In a block and a half, there are around 20 unimproved homes that are ripe for redevelopment on Chestnut Street, said Rick Burrows, who lives on the street. Under the permitted zoning, those lots could all be redeveloped into triplexes, increasing the small streetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population by 400 per cent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s allowed with no minor variances,â&#x20AC;? Burrows said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are ground zero for this.â&#x20AC;? Burrows spoke out at a meeting about infill development held at St. Paul University on Oct. 3. He said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fan of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s policy of intensification and having more people live with a smaller footprint in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s core, but whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s allowed in Archville goes too far.

At Chills for CHEO fundraiser, bigger is better Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news – It’s that time of year when thoughts turn to jack-o’-lanterns, trick or treating, and sheer terror. The organizers of Chills for CHEO are always more than happy to provide Ottawa residents with their annual terror quotient, and this year they’re back with even more frightful fun. Returning for a second year to Funhaven’s Baxter Road location, where the Oct. 4 kick-off was held, Chills for CHEO has become famous for teens and adults looking for pulse-pounding thrills in the infamous Crypt of Torment. Now, the event is adding a haunted house for kids – the Magic Manor - which tones down the terror while still providing a fun, spooky experience. “It incorporates a new storyline,” said Funhaven events manager Danielle Vicha. “Strange things have been happening at Funhaven and Scooby Doo and the gang are coming to solve the mystery.” Last year 10,000 people attended Chills over a threeweek period, raising $65,000 for the children’s hospital. This year, the event will run a full month and promises to bring in even more money – a fitting result for an event that

began 10 years ago in founder Dave Ellis’ garage. “What’s in Chills takes up two tractor trailers,” he explained, noting how the event quickly outgrew the confines of his suburban yard. “It’s great to have a place where we can put it and get it going.” Ellis said it takes a team of 200 volunteers a full month to construct the Crypt of Torment, which has been designed to process a large number of participants while still providing “a very close experience.” CHEO Foundation vicepresident Norma Lamont praised the initiative and those who make it possible, saying, “It is donor dollars that makes the true difference…it makes (CHEO) not just a hospital but a special place for the kids.” CHEO is hoping to purchase a laparoscopic tower – a mobile, rolling device that provides visualization and documentation of endoscopy procedures – in the near future to further advance the work occurring at the hospital. “The equipment in the OR, the research that helps our staff, is all made possible by things like Chills for CHEO,” said Lamont. Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches was on hand at the kickoff to deliver a message of goodwill on behalf of Ottawa mayor Jim Watson.

Desroches, whose family recently welcomed twins into their household, expressed his gratitude for being able to reside in a city where people can benefit from a facility like

CHEO. He also thanked the founder and volunteers of Chills for CHEO, having met Ellis when he was a constituent operating a possibly too-suc-

cessful haunted house inside his riding. “Dave has been one of the great entrepreneurs of our city,” said Desroches. “People want a city where they can

work, live and play, and this fits right into that.” Chills for CHEO is now open at 1050 Baxter Road, and will remain open until Oct. 31.

EMC community - Old Ottawa East is rolling out pumpkins to help raise a little money for community initiatives. The Community Activities Group in Old Ottawa East will hold its annual pumpkin sale on Oct. 13 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. With two sale locations, Brantwood Park and the Old Town Hall Community Centre, executive director of the activities group Carol Workun said the group has the neighbourhood covered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is pretty popular, many members of the community come out and make a tradition,â&#x20AC;? she said. This annual event began in 2009 when the group partnered with a community member who was raising money for their sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hockey team. The fundraiser grew from there.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the only fundraiser we hold each year and the community has been widespread in its support,â&#x20AC;? Workun said. The money raised at the event goes towards programming initiatives the group provides, such as youth nights. Workun also indicated some of the money may help fund a new community event in the upcoming year. Featuring pumpkins grown locally at Fosters Family Farm in North Gower, the sale this year will also offer families a chance to participate in a fun-filled day, Workun added, featuring games, crafts and a bouncy castle. Families looking for sports equipment or looking to clean out their closets can participate in another new addition to the sale, a sports equipment exchange will take place at the Brantwood Park field house from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Residents who wish to sell equipment are responsible to bring their own table, chair and sell their equipment. Workun said 30 volunteers help out on the day, by manning the activities, taking orders and delivering the purchased pumpkins later that day. Weather does play a factor on how well sales will go, but Workun is predicting to sell out if conditions cooperate. Residents can pre-order their pumpkins for delivery or pick-up by emailing the group at info@ottawaeastcag.ca with the subject line â&#x20AC;&#x153;pumpkin orderâ&#x20AC;? and the body of the email indicating the number of pumpkins, an address and a phone number. There is a minimum order of two pumpkins for deliveries, which will take place on residences doorsteps on Oct. 13. Cheques must be made payable to the Community Activities Group of Ottawa East.

HELPING SENIORS STAY AT HOME, SAFELY

Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Volunteers say more community space is needed at the public housing complex in Strathcona Heights for it to realize its potential. The Strathcona Heights community house held a walking tour on Oct. 1 to show Mayor Jim Watson, Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury and Bay Coun. Mark Taylor the need to open more space in the Ottawa Community Housing complex for programming. “We need your help to make it what it needs to be,” Shire said. The residents want to use already existing space in the buildings. To make it work, the residents feel more funding is needed, to help staff the rooms. “We would like to use the rooms more fully,” said Ahmed Omer, a youth coordinator. Fleury thanked the residents for organizing the event. “You have helped us see the benefit of what it could be,” Fleury said. The Sandy Hill housing already runs a number of programs for its residents. All done through volunteer and one Ottawa Community Housing staff member, the residents have a sewing class, an afterschool homework club and fitness for women. Having more rooms, six in total, would allow the complex to spread activities to all the corners of the buildings and have a greater reach to the residents who live in the buildings. Watson said the tour really helped him see what the community was talking about. “It was a good eye opener today,” Watson said. Taylor agreed. “It definitely made it a much more compelling argument,” he said. Watson added he will work

On October 2nd, 2012, the Healthy Homes Renovation Tax Credit Act was passed by the Legislature. This tax credit will allow Ontario’s seniors to renovate their homes so they can live in them safely and independently longer. Seniors who own or rent homes, and people who share a home with a senior relative will be able to receive the new tax credit worth up to $1,500 each year. The credit will make it more affordable to complete home renovations and installations to help seniors stay in their homes more safely and comfortably, and prevent falls and injuries. MICHELLE NASH/METROLAND

Sandy Hill Community Health Centre youth coordinator Gerald Dragon and Mayor Jim Watson participated in the official unveiling of Sandy Hill’s newest mural at the corner of Mann Avenue and Chapel Avenue. Eleven youth helped Dragon turn a hot spot for graffiti into an art piece for the community. with Fleury and community housing staff to help make the facilities work better for the residents and programs. The walking tour piggybacked the unveiling of a mural project at the corner of Mann Avenue and Chapel Street. The event celebrated the accomplishment of a new Paint it Up! program mural. Gerald Dragon, Sandy Hill Community Health Centre’s youth coordinator, said the project helped clean up a graffiti covered wall, allowing it to become something the youth could be proud of.

“I have had my eye on this wall since I started at the centre,” he said. Cassandra Dickie and Mike Davis from Ottawa Urban Arts helped the youth turn the wall into a work of art. Dragon enlisted the help of 11 young people to work on the mural, all between the ages of 11 and 14 years-old. “I felt it was important to have youth who were not yet in the working world yet,” he said. Dragon offered each of the youth a small honorarium for their work. The colourful mural depicts

a child’s imagination, Yasim Jaamac, one of the youth said. For Dragon, who’s funding comes from the United Way Ottawa’s creating stronger neighbourhood funding said having helped the youth feel pride in their community is the ultimate reward. “They have taken ownership to this wall and to their community,” he said. “There is a certain stigma attached to OCH housing, but today, we brought together the wider Sandy Hill community. We are all neighbours and we all have pride in our community.”

The Healthy Homes Renovation Tax Credit will improve seniors’ quality of life at home and help reduce pressures on more costly hospital and long-term care services. Helping seniors live independently at home longer supports our government’s Seniors Care Strategy and is part of its Action Plan for Health Care to help ensure Ontario’s seniors get the right care, at the right time and in the right place.

City buys land for future Barrhaven park-and-ride jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

EMC news - The city’s transportation committee signed off on the $5.2-million purchase of a plot of land on Woodroffe Avenue on Oct. 3. The purchase will seal the deal for a future Barrhaven park-and-ride meant to serve residents on both sides of the Rideau River. The report presented to the committee said both the city’s transportation master plan and official plan call for a parkand-ride to serve the southeastern part of Barrhaven. The need for the park-and-ride was identified in a 2008 update to the transportation plan. “Continued rapid residential growth in Barrhaven would be served by the new park-andride,” the report reads. The new lot – which would have 680 parking spaces – would be serviced by bus route 94. The bus would access use an already constructed bus turnaround on the lot at 3311 Woodroffe Ave. The land is also located

on the future Chapman Mills rapid transit corridor and will connect with the Strandherd Drive transit corridor before linking up with the bus-only lanes on the Strandherd Armstrong Bridge. The route would connect northward along Woodroffe Avenue for commuters travelling to Fallowfield station and south to the Riverview parkand-ride lot in Riverside South where commuters have the option of continuing downtown. “The purchase of this land from the South Nepean Development Corporation allows the city to move forward on its plans to provide convenient, accessible rapid transit service to the residents of south Ottawa,” Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches said in a press release. “In addition to the residents of Barrhaven, many residents in rural Ottawa will also benefit from this parkand-ride facility along this major transportation corridor.” The land the purchased from the SNDC amounts to more than four hectares. The development corporation will

Algonquin College supports three-year degree proposal Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

EMC news - David Corson, president of the Algonquin College Students’ Association said three-year degree programs at Ontario’s colleges could help recent grads from getting passed by in federal public service job competitions. “We have advanced diploma programs, but the problem is there is no term for that at the federal level, so applicants get kicked out in the first round because the pool is automated to look for degrees,” he said. Colleges Ontario released a report on Oct. 4 that shows many of the three-year-programs in the province’s 24 colleges already meet the standards for baccalaureate education. “Giving colleges the authority to offer three-year degrees will provide an important new option to students,” Linda Franklin, the president of Colleges Ontario said in a press release. “In most of the world, a student completing the same program would graduate with a degree.” The report, entitled Empowering Ontario: Transforming Higher Education in the 21st Century, says many students

are interested in career-focused programs at colleges but they want a degree. Corson said the standards in Ontario for post-secondary education are very high and allowing three-year degrees at colleges would in no way diminish the title. “It wouldn’t work for all programs, but there are a lot where it would make sense,” he said. The Algonquin faculty agrees with College Ontario’s findings. “We believe offering a degree to those who complete a three-year program will make our students more competitive as they enter the job market,” Claude Brulé, vice-president at Algonquin, said. The college currently offers 26 advanced diploma programs. Brulé said staff is looking at which of those could be converted to three-year degree programs and which new programs could be offered as three-year degrees. He dismissed the notion that colleges are trying to be more like universities, saying the proposal gives students who learn better in an applied environment equal opportunities.

be developing two single-storey mixed-use buildings in the land adjacent to the park and ride. Desroches said potential uses could include banks, a convenience store, office space or a service or repair business.

Commuters will have more options now that the city has purchased land for another park-and-ride lot in Barrhaven.

Centre celebrates successful charity event Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

eleine Meilleur, Mayor Jim Watson, Beacon Hill-Cyrville Coun. Tim Tierney and deputy police chief Gilles Larochelle were present at the event. The next ride will take place on Sept. 14, 2013. The centre served 1,962 clients between April 2011 and March 2012 through its women and violence program.

The biker community really has gotten behind this event and happy to help give back.” The route started at the Eastern Ottawa Resource Centre, located at 2339 Ogilvie Rd. and travelled to the centre’s satellite location at 1515 Tenth Line Rd. where a barbecue was provided for riders and participants.

During the recent Quebec provincial election, the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC), representing Canada’s impartial public service, voiced their support for candidates running for the Québec solidaire and Part Québecois political parties. Both of these provincial parties seek to break up the country. When this came to my attention I immediately started a campaign to give unionized employees in federallyregulated workplaces the right to opt out of paying union dues. I cannot accept a union forcefully taking money out of the pockets of Canada’s public servants in order to support political parties whose avowed goal is Quebec separation. This is not in the best interests of anyone who works in the federal public service. For years, the constituents in my riding have raised this issue. One gentleman approached me recently to express his frustration with PSAC because they had given $5000 to support the students protesting in Montreal about tuition fees. These students were destructive and caused harm to the city, while their actions were completely unrelated to any federal workplace. According to the Ottawa Sun, PSAC spent $1,694,900 million on political action in 2011. This money came entirely from the pockets of federal public servants whether they agreed with the cause or not. If our 186,000 unionized public servants had the option to choose if they pay dues to PSAC, the union would be forced to put members’ interests first, rather than further their own agenda. Section two of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms protects freedom of speech, but we are not forced to speak. The same section protects freedom of religion, but yet again we are not forced to be religious. When it comes to freedom of association however, some people are forced to associate. In Canada, employees in unionized workplaces are obliged to pay union dues even if they do not agree with the actions of the union. Isn’t it time we gave workers the freedom to choose? If you agree, please contact my office to sign the Petition to the Government of Canada for Workers’ Freedom. If you would like to watch my speech in Parliament, please visit my website at www.PierreMP.ca. I welcome your thoughts on this issue and am proud to serve as your Member of Parliament.

EMC news - An annual motorcycle fundraiser ride is revving up to become the biggest earner for the Eastern Ottawa Resource Centre after another successful year. The third annual Cruise Don’t Bruise: Bikers Against Violence fundraiser took place on Sept. 15. The event raised more than $15,000 for the centre’s anti-violence programs. “It has grown so much in two years,” said Ken Mackenzie, the centre’s program manager. Last year’s event raised

$12,000. The ride has not only gained monetary support, but the number of riders has also grown substantially, growing from 60 riders the first year, nearly 100 in the second to this year’s grand total of 135 riders.

New building proposal announced for Glebe Ave. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s butt-ugly: developer Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - After city council turned down a proposal to build a 17-unit residential building at 174 Glebe Ave., the builder has now submitted a preliminary proposal to city staff and residents to build a 30-unit retirement home in its place. The owner of the property, Mario Staltari, confirmed he has sent the new proposal to the Glebe Community Association, the ward councillor and city staff for comment. Double the size of the 17unit proposal, Staltari said this new building is not nearly as nice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is butt-ugly, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Personally I think the condo looked a lot better.â&#x20AC;? If he submits a formal application, it will be the ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seventh time submitting an application to the city for approval. Staltari said this time he is laying all his cards on the table and playing the waiting game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am really hoping that the residents will look at it and at the end of the day say which one do I prefer, and whatever they decide, I will be inclined to sway that way,â&#x20AC;? Staltari

said. The debate over the last application surrounded plans to build a 17-unit, four-storey structure that was a storey taller and slightly larger in mass than the existing building, already much larger than most of the surrounding homes. It was rejected by city council on Aug. 30 and Staltari decided to go ahead with two plans - appeal the decision to the Ontario Municipal Board and to present the city and residents a new proposal to build a 47-person building, for which the property is currently zoned. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have the exemption which will allow a 47 units, or person building,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is what I am allowed to do.â&#x20AC;? The city confirmed the preliminary application has been sent to staff. Spokeswoman Jocelyn Turner said developers do submit preliminary proposals, before an official application, to seek advice and suggestions from staff. As the property is already zoned for and at one time was a retirement home, Turner confirmed the builder will not need to seek any variances to build. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The existing zoning permits a retirement home with a maximum of 47 residents,â&#x20AC;?

SUBMITTED

The new proposal, right, and the previous proposal for 174 Glebe are shown here side-by-side. The developer prefers his previous plans, but said he is willing to build the new ones if that is what residents prefer. Turner wrote in an email. News of the updated plans for the property was announced at a Glebe Community Association meeting on Sept. 25. Residents, who referred to the building as a 19-unit building, raised some concern, but since no official application is available for them to see, comments were guarded. Planning committee chairman Bobby Galbreath said the potential new proposal does make the former one more appetizing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We could say in view of the 47 units, you might as well go ahead with the 19,â&#x20AC;?

Glabreath said at the meeting. No official comment from the association has been made on this new proposal, as the association is waiting for an official application to be submitted. The new plan was first referred to at city council on Aug. 30 when Jeff Polowin, a lawyer representing the developer, indicated this could be the next step. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you turn it down, you put (the developer) in a position of spending tens of thousands of dollars to fight the city (at the Ontario Municipal Board), or to build something the neighbours really arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

going to like and make more money,â&#x20AC;? Polowin said on Aug. 30. The developerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s architect, Jim Colizza echoed Polowin statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t compare this (proposed) building to what you would get under the bylaw,â&#x20AC;? Colizza said. He said if he designed an unattractive â&#x20AC;&#x153;boxâ&#x20AC;? as the current zoning allowed, the developer wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have had to go through any consultation or rezoning process. That, Staltari said, is what he will do, if that is what residents prefer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One or the other, at this

point, I am indifferent,â&#x20AC;? Staltari said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But my heart is in the 17-unit.â&#x20AC;? Turner said that if the proposal meets the provisions of the existing zoning; it would still require site plan approval and an application would have to be made. Staltari will added he will go ahead with the OMB hearing either way, because he has lost trust in the community and would like to hear the ruling on his proposal for the 17 unit building. The hearing will take place in the new year. With files from Laura Mueller

Canada’s Sweetheart remembered in Ottawa Barbara Ann Scott King leaves lasting legacy in city, and at Minto Skating Club Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - Barbara Ann Scott King died on Sept. 30 at the age of 84, but her memory won’t fade from the city where she grew up. Canada’s sweetheart was a Sandy Hill native who trained at the Minto Skating Club and twirled on Dow’s Lake during Ottawa winters, and later achieved unmatched success. She is the only person to ever hold the European, North American, Canadian and World championship titles and the Olympic gold simultaneously. In the first Olympics after the Second World War in 1948, the then-teenager won the gold medal and quickly solidified her name as a Canadian sporting icon. She trained at Minto Skating Club, representing the same club as many Ottawa championship skaters. Don Jackson skated with several of the same coaches as Scott King, and went on to become a world champion and Olympic bronze medalist before coaching and taking the executive director role at Minto. He said that even after she moved to Chicago, and eventually Florida, Ottawa was always home to Scott King. “She was always doing things for Minto when she could,” Jackson said. He can recall Scott King accepting invitation after invitation for events, speeches, and teas with Minto skaters. Because of her notoriety, she had to bring along a staff member to help corral the fans who wanted autographs at the peak of her popularity. “She was just like royalty, really, in figure skating,” he said. “It was good that she came back because of the history of skating; it gets pretty fuzzy after a while … It kept her alive in the eyes of the

young skaters coming up and gave them somebody to see that won a gold, that they were able to achieve it too.” Scott King began skating at six years old, passing her gold figures test at 10 – the youngest in the world. Jackson remembers her stellar basics in her figures test – which no longer exists – which required such accuracy that it could be lost with one wrong flick of the blade. And at 19, clean basics and long training hours in Ottawa carried Scott King all the way to the major titles that catapulted her to legendary status in sports history. She was made an officer of the Order of Canada and a member of the Order of Ontario; she was also inducted into the Canadian Olympic Hall of Fame, the Skate Canada Hall of Fame and the International Women’s Sports Hall of Fame. The Canadian Olympic Committee released a statement following her death, calling it a loss to the sporting community and all of Canada. “Ms. Scott’s grace and humility put her in a class of her own,” the statement said. “Her accomplishments will never be forgotten as she has paved the way for generations of figure skaters.” Jackson said Scott King continued to be a presence in the skating community and encouraged young skaters through the rollercoaster of competitive sport. “I really believe that she did enjoy those years, she worked hard. There are ups and downs in everyone’s careers,” he said. “She knew that she had inspired a lot of young skaters and she certainly was the one who inspired me.” Memorabilia from her career, including medals, was donated to city hall for the Barbara Ann Scott Gallery, which opened on Aug. 9. Scott King made the trip to

LAURA MUELLER/METROLAND

Barbara Ann Scott King is joined by Mayor Jim Watson and others to officially open the Barbara Ann Scott Gallery at city hall on Aug. 9. Scott King flew to Ottawa for the gallery opening and donation of her memorabilia from her beginnings at the Minto Figure Skating Club to her ascent to world champion. Scott King died on Sept. 30 at the age of 84. Ottawa for the opening of the gallery with Mayor Jim Watson. “Just in her last few days of living, she came and donated all her medals to the

city,” Jackson said. “It’s nice because in those days, the city was behind her.” At the opening, Scott King said the gallery is the perfect home for her collection.

“I have always felt the collection belonged here in Ottawa … the city has always, always been so supportive,” she said “She certainly is going to

be missed,” Jackson said. “But I think she certainly will be remembered because she is an icon.” With files from Laura Mueller

Dylan Noel Gates Bannan has some fun posing in the stockades at Walt Disney World.

What would a trip to Walt Disney World be without a visit with Mickey Mouse himself? Mickey and other Disney characters took part in a parade through the park.

Sisters Shaily and Feyah Turner of Orleans could barely contain their excitement on the plane ride to Orlando, Florida Sept. 25 The girls couldn’t wait to hit Splash Mountain, having looked it up online before the trip.

Dreams take flight at Walt Disney World Theresa Fritz Theresa.fritz@metroland.com

EMC events – One hundred and twenty-eight children enjoyed ice cream as they watched the sun come up aboard an Air Canada flight staffed by a pirate crew as they made their way to the “happiest place on earth.” And if that sounds like the start of the best day ever, it only got better as the annual Dreams Take Flight Ottawa trip to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla. touched down shortly after 9 a.m. on Sept. 25. By 10:30 a.m., children who might never have had the chance to visit the theme park could barely contain their excitement – eager to experience everything Disney had to offer. The day began bright and early at 4 a.m., as parents and children arrived at Ottawa’s Canada Reception Centre, where the prime minister and other dignitaries fly from, in anticipation of the 5:30 a.m. flight. Once inside the hangar, all were greeted by nearly 100 smiling Dreams Take Flight Ottawa volunteers who turned what could have been a chaotic scene into a sea of excitement and organization. Each child and volunteer received a uniform to wear on the trip. Children received white Tshirts, red hats, black shorts and Crocs. Volunteers received a white hat, white shirt, black shorts/capris and Crocs. VOLUNTEERS

Volunteer Nida Kealey recalled how her now 18-yearold autistic son went on a Disney trip with the organization nine years ago and it was the best thing he could have done. He has since travelled on a plane 10 times and she credits the Dreams trip with giving him the confidence to do whatever he set his mind to. Since October 1995, Dreams Take Flight Ottawa has given children with physical, mental or social challenges an incredible day where they can be carefree and make memories to last forever. A total of nine hours was spent at Disney World including meals

and shopping time. Dreams Take Flight Ottawa uses specific criteria to select children for the trip. Among the criteria, children with special needs must represent various agencies, be between the ages of six and 12 and have never visited a Disney theme park before. Making special memories happen is not cheap. This year’s trip cost $195,000 and would not have been possible without assistance from organizations like Air Canada, which donated the plane for the trip and Shell, which donated the fuel. The Air Canada pilots and flight crew for the trip also donated their time, taking a vacation day to be part of the magical experience that not only included dressing up for the flight but also coming to the park later in the day to enjoy the rides. Other corporate sponsors like Mark’s, Crocs and Bentley stepped up again to assist with clothing, shoes and backpacks for volunteers and children. And even more sponsors support the trip and the charity in other ways. Dreams Take Flight is a 100-per-cent voluntary run organization. Various fundraising events held over the course of the year help top off coffers so everything is paid for on the trip. Children also received spending money to bring home a special Disney souvenir. For some parents, the trip marked the first time their children were either away from them or travelling to the United States without them. But, the fear of having a child gone for nearly 24 hours was not greater than their desire for them to have the experience of a lifetime. Dunrobin’s Laura Taffinder, 8, was recommended for the trip by the teacher at her school in Kanata. “She is very, very excited,” said her mom Tracy Taffinder, who said she was not nervous about her daughter travelling without her. “I am so excited for her. It really is the chance of a lifetime.” Laura even managed to get a full night’s sleep before the flight, with mom having no trouble waking her up bright

Splash Mountain was one of the most popular ride choices at Walt Disney World. Dreams Take Flight volunteers Mike Banville, Wendy Robblee (with mouse ears) and trip participant Kideyn Matthias are all smiles and they move along the circuit before taking the 50-foot plunge. Children, volunteers and even the media got to spend nine hours at Disney enjoying the sights, sounds and most of all the rides amidst hot and humid Florida weather Sept. 25. and early. This year’s trip to Disney World featured a number of siblings sharing the magical experience. Among them were sisters Shaily and Feyah Turner of Orleans. “We are very excited,” 12-year-old Shaily said on the plane, noting the sisters couldn’t wait to ride the popular Splash Mountain ride. “We have been looking it up (on) the computer for quite a while.” The first rides chosen by groups the minute they walked through Disney’s gates were either Splash Mountain or Space Mountain, and they were revisited frequently throughout the day. While the water ride sends riders hurling down a 15-metre water drop and the other is a roller coaster ride in the dark, the screams heard were not of fear but excitement. As the day went on, the smiles got wider. While most

of the children on the trip were English, a number of French youngsters enjoyed themselves as well. One of those was Denisha Poulain Levasseur. She had a great time driving a race car on the Speedway ride and she kept saying she could not believe she was doing it. For some volunteers, this year’s trip likely marked their last with the organization. GREAT GROUPS

“It has been awesome. The kids are great. We’ve had a great group today,” said 2012 Dreams Take Flight Ottawa president Nicole Banville midway through the Disney World trip day. Banville is stepping down as a director with the organization and the most recent trip marked her final one. “It is bittersweet. I will miss

everybody. I will probably hang a bit, maybe volunteer,” she mused. “I think the kids have had a great time from what I have seen,” Banville concluded. Her husband Mike, the organization’s vice president, has been on 14 trips to Disney World and he said the experience is very gratifying. As the day wound its way to a close, and all the rides has been thoroughly ridden, children and volunteers made their way to Disney World’s famous Main Street for some souvenir shopping. Each child received $30 to find that special memento of a day not to be forgotten anytime soon. The group arrived back at the hangar at Orlando International Airport and boarded the steps to the waiting plane before the 9 p.m. takeoff. While the trip down to Florida had been filled with the

sounds of excited children, the return trip was much quieter and many huddled down in the first class sleeper bunks to dream about the incredible day that had become reality. FAMILIES

Once back inside the Canada Reception Centre, each child received a donated Bentley backpack filled with gifts to mark celebrating their special day. From there, they were ushered into the main part of the hangar where a red carpet was rolled out and parents waited eagerly for their children. “This was the best day ever,” one child was overheard telling his parents. No doubt, a sentiment shared between many other parents and children as they reunited after a long, exhausting but thrilling day.

Miss Crosby was lucky to live in the community, not like some rural teachers who had to “room and board” at one of the local farms. She could walk to school. She also had the patience of a saint. Marguirite was enough to try anyone’s patience, but Miss Crosby knew exactly how to handle the girl who was the bane of my existence.

gravated the daylights out of me, mostly because she was the only one in her family and had the best of everything. She had a real leather school bag, for instance and a tin box for her lunch, items that were deemed luxuries at the time. About once a year, just about every family in the community would have the teacher overnight on a weekend. That meant of course, that she would attend church with the family on the Sunday and it didn’t matter what church they attended, the teacher was expected to go with them. So Miss Crosby could be at a United church one week and at a Lutheran one the next.

What a thrill it was to have the teacher over for the night. The house would have a cleaning from top to bottom, just like it got in the spring or fall. Floors upstairs and downstairs were scrubbed, the kitchen was spotless and bedclothes were all fresh off the line. There would also be plenty of food on the table. Of course, when it was our turn to host the teacher, she couldn’t be expected to walk the five-and-a-half kilometres my brothers and sister and I had to trudge to and from school. No, Father would take the buggy in the summer and the cutter in the winter to fetch her to our old log house. That weekend, I felt so smug. I knew for a fact that Marguirite had asked Miss Crosby at least three or four times during the school year to go to her home for the weekend. But Miss Crosby wouldn’t dream of that. No, everything was fair and square with Miss Crosby.

Ottawa South EMC - Thursday, October 11, 2012

Marguirite would constantly bring a treat to school for the teacher. This time of year it would be an apple. Often Miss Crosby would have an apple every day from the little girl with the drug-storebought curls and I would watch to see what the teacher would do with it. I never saw her eat the apple, but it would be taken home with her and I liked to think she maybe threw it away when she got far enough away from the school, but more than likely it was put into a pie or apple crisp. I have no idea what Miss Crosby did with the boxes of hankies, the cheap tin cans of talcum powder and the countless bars of soap she got at Christmas time, but I do remember getting a little note of thanks every year. She would make sure the notes were all written at the same time, on our desks waiting for us. The notes were never mailed. After all, it cost three cents for a postage stamp back then. She never seemed to have a big wardrobe. In the winter, it was a simple black wool dress and in the summer a printed silk. She had a variety of crocheted collars that she attached to her outfit to bring variety to what she wore and she wore black laced shoes with thick rubber on the heels. My brother Emerson said the heels were like that so that she could creep up on you without being heard. Miss Crosby loved the king

and queen and she loved the Bible. Every morning she read a scripture lesson and we all recited the Lord’s Prayer in unison. We were supposed to sit ramrod straight in our seats with our heads bowed and our hands forming steeples. Heaven help us if we were caught with our eyes open. Then we had to stand at attention by our seats and Miss Crosby blew on a little tin piece that gave us all the musical note to start on and with our right hand over our hearts, we belted out God Save the King. Even those who couldn’t carry a note in a slop-pail were expected to sing. Of course Marguirite sang so loudly I’m sure she could be heard in Admaston. Miss Crosby was high on manners. It didn’t matter who came to the door at Northcote School, we were expected to get out of our seats, noiselessly of course and stand at attention until told to sit down. If it was the inspector, Miss Crosby would introduce him and we had to say, again in unison, “good morning” or “good afternoon” and repeat the inspector’s name. When Mother said Miss Crosby was a saint, I believed her. Her salary was only a few hundred dollars a year and Mother said she earned every cent of it. When you left the Northcote School, having graduated from the entrance class, you were ready for whatever road lay ahead. Miss Crosby saw to that.

iss Crosby was fair to a fault, yet she stood for no nonsense. Most of the boys in Senior Fourth at Northcote School were a couple heads taller than she was, but she had no trouble handing out discipline to any of them when the need arose. We all had a healthy fear of Miss Crosby, including Cecil and my brother Emerson, both of whom seemed to attract trouble like ants to a plate of honey. The strap that hung on the side of her desk from a cup hook was a constant reminder that if anyone stepped out of line, she would use it in a split second. When she did, the whack was enough to raise her off her feet. So needless to say, just looking at the black leather demon was enough to keep us on our best behaviour. Back then the teacher was right up there in importance

EMC news - Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury has been practicing his dips, twirls and smooth moves to help raise money for children and youth with physical disabilities. On Oct. 12, the second Dancing with the Stars for Easter Seals Kids fundraiser event will take place in Ottawa. Among the celebrities who will be participating is sporting enthusiast Fleury, who has his eye on ďŹ nishing ďŹ rst. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maybe it is my competitive background, but I am in this to win it,â&#x20AC;? Fleury said. The event will take place at the Delta Ottawa City Centre. At the inaugural event, Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs participated. Prior to the 16 dance lessons offered to Fleury, the councillor admitted his dance

steps were limited to a side shufďŹ&#x201A;e at best. Hobbs, Fleury said, put his name in to participate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am a bit nervous, it is different than any other sport,â&#x20AC;? he said. Fleury is learning all he needs to know at the Glebeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fred Astaire Studio. The studio has offered 16 free lessons to all the participants and each celebrity dancer gets a Fred Astaire dance instructor as a partner for the eveningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dance. Director of the Glebe studio, Melissa Krulick, said the event is a lot of fun for the instructors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is important to us to give back to the community,â&#x20AC;? Krulick said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The camaraderie that takes place during the lessons is great to see. Everyone becomes fast friends.â&#x20AC;? Fleuryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s instructor, Meaghan Cameron, said her partner is deďŹ nitely working hard.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really appreciate how much effort Mathieu (Fleury) is putting in to this,â&#x20AC;? Cameron said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a lot of hard work.â&#x20AC;? Cameron added the dances the celebrities will be performing are moves most students do not learn until they have had at least a year or more of training. Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event raised $25,000 for the charity. The money provides families of children with physical disabilities with ďŹ nancial assistance for mobility equipment, communication devices such as wheelchairs, walkers, and braces. It also helps fund a fully accessible Easter Seals camps, and funding for alternative recreational programs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dancing with the Stars for Easter Seals Kids is a fun and fabulous evening for a great cause,â&#x20AC;? said Rebecca Leikin, development ofďŹ cer for Eas-

 !"

ter Seals Ontario. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a fantastic lineup of local celebrity dancers who are working hard to put together routines with their professional partners. It will be an event you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to miss.â&#x20AC;? The other celebrity dancers competing against Fleury are Lynsey Bennett, who was Miss Canada 2003; CTVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Leanne Cusack; Ottawa lawyer Lawrence Greenspon; Don Martin, host of CTVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Power Play; Majic 100 hosts Trisha Owens and Kurt Stoodley; and Mary Taggart, editorin-chief of Ottawa at Home magazine. Each dancing team will perform two dances. For Fleury, he will be performing the tango and ballroom dancing. Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s champion, Elizabeth Manley will return to act as one of the celebrity judges, but the audience is also encouraged to vote for their favourite dance team by

Secret to making the ultimate peach cake

S

everal years ago, I featured a recipe in my column for a cake made with peach pie

• 1 white cake mix • 1 can (540 ml) peach pie filling or use the recipe below • 4 eggs, beaten • 1 1/4 tsp. almond extract • 1 tbsp. amaretto liqueur Ignore the directions on the cake mix package. The batter does not need any other liquids. Butter and lightly flour either a Bundt pan or a 23-by33-centimetre cake pan. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the cake mix, pie filling, eggs, flavouring and liqueur if you’re using it. Use a spoon, not an electric mixer, to mix the batter.

Lunch?

slices or halves, in their own juice • water (see directions below for the amount) • 1/4 cup flour

Stir until thoroughly combined, about two minutes. If the peaches in the pie filling are in large slices, break them into smaller pieces with the spoon. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan, and bake at 325 F (160 C) for about 35 minutes. Check with a toothpick to make sure the cake is done. If not, bake for another five minutes and test again. When the cake is done, remove it from the oven, and let it cool for five minutes. If you used a Bundt pan, turn the cake out on a rack. If you used a 23-by-33-centimetre pan, leave the cake in the pan. Cool completely before serving. This cake is very moist and doesn’t need icing. If you want to serve it with something else, a dollop of whipped cream is nice.

Farm Boy™ Fresh Soups

If you can’t find canned peach pie filling, here’s how to make a homemade version. Drain the canned peaches, reserving the juice in a measuring cup. Add enough water to make one cup of liquid. Combine the liquid with the flour in a small plastic container with a tight-fitting lid. Cover, hold the lid firmly and shake well. Pour this into a small saucepan. Cook the mixture, over medium heat, for three to five minutes, stirring constantly, until it thickens into a sauce. Cool completely. While the sauce cools, cut the peaches into pieces about the size of a walnut. When the sauce is cool, stir in the peaches. Use this mixture, instead of the canned pie filling, in the cake recipe.

PEACH FILLING

• 398 ml can of peaches, either

As wholesome as the best homemade. Our soups are made from scratch, using only the best quality, fresh produce from our stores. Even the chicken stock base is made with fresh Canadian Grade A chicken slowly simmered with farm-fresh vegetables. We make each soup in small batches, letting the flavours blend for a taste that is naturally delicious. $5.99 ea, 946ml, 6 tasty flavours

Open your hearts and cupboards EMC news - Salvation Army Thrift Stores need help to stock the shelves of local food banks in communities across Canada. For the third year in a row, 114 Salvation Army Thrift Stores will collect non-perishable food as part of the Open Your Hearts & Your Cupboards campaign now underway and which runs through Dec. 31. Collection bins will be positioned at Thrift Stores in urban and rural neighbourhoods and customers, community members and local businesses are invited to help fill them with nutritious and desperately needed food for deprived families such as canned meat and vegetables, pasta, cereal, peanut butter and baby formula. “Once again we are appealing to our supporters to help make a positive impact on the issue of hunger across the country by donating to our food collection campaign,” said Tanisha Dunkley, national marketing manager of the Salvation Army national recycling operations. “Now is the time of year when food banks experience high demand for food supplies .” Food donations from customers and community members last year allowed Salvation Army Thrift Stores to fill 430 large collection bins, equal to 860 shopping carts full of food. This year, the national goal will be to fill 1,000 shopping carts or 500 collection bins full of food to support local food

filling. In less than a week, supermarkets and grocery stores from Brockville to Ottawa were completely sold out of peach pie filling. As a result of it being so hard to find, I developed a recipe for a quick, homemade peach pie filling to use in the cake. It’s not as convenient as the canned version, but it has more peaches and less sugar.

Making cycling ‘irrestistable’ to everyone is the theme of the keynote talk for Citizens for Safe Cycling’s annual general meeting on Oct. 16.

October 13, 2012 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM

Lessons on promoting cycling for all at Oct. 16 meeting EMC news - Citizens for Safe Cycling’s annual general meeting on Oct. 16. will feature a well-known professor, Ralph Buehler, speaking on the topic of “Making cycling irresistible.” The meeting will take place at Tom Brown Arena, 141 Bayview Rd. in Hintonburg. Speakers will begin at 6:45 p.m. Buehler is an assistant professor in urban affairs and planning and a faculty fellow with the Metropolitan Institute at Virginia Tech’s Alexandria Center.

Sponsored by the German Embassy, Buehler’s talk will emphasize that cycling shouldn’t be limited to those who are very fit, trained and “daring enough to battle traffic on busy roads.” His talk will focus on taking lessons from Europe and North America about co-ordinating infrastructure, programs and government policies to ensure successful cycling promotion. He will describe ways to make cycling feasible, convenient and safe for daily commutes, from shopping trips to work or school commutes. Trinity-Spadina NDP MP Olivia Chow, wife of the late

federal NDP leader Jack Layton, will speak about her private member’s bill pushing for transport truck side guards to protect cyclists from being pulled under trucks. The meeting will begin with a 6 p.m. meet and greet at the arena. Speakers will take the stage at 6:45 p.m., followed by a re-cap of the year’s activities and achievements beginning at 8:30 p.m. The event is free, but those who wish to attend are asked to register online at www. safecycling.ca so the group can anticipate how many people to expect.

EMC news – Warm up with a flight of whisky at the annual scotch tasting event at Watson’s Mill this Thursday, Oct. 11. Sitting down for a formal evening, guests will pair appetizers from the Mill Tavern with four kinds of scotch whisky, all hand-picked by Algonquin College sommelier Geoff Skeggs. Mill manager Isabelle Geoffrion said the event will have a more formal feel than the summer’s popular wine tasting event, which is viewed

as one of the village’s major social events of the year. “This is really more educational, because people aren’t really as knowledgeable in scotch whiskys as they are in wine,” she said. And since whisky is often in a much higher price bracket, the event gives novices a chance to learn without having to invest in expensive bottles of scotch. “It’s hard to get started. So an event like this is a good opportunity,” she said. Skeggs will offer background on the four different types of scotch whisky, where they come from, how they’re

made and how their flavours are produced. Throughout the evening, guests will try the four varieties, all distilled in Scotland. They include Glenmorangie Sonnalta PX, a 15-year-old Glenfarclas, a multi-vintage Bruichladdich Port Charlottle and 10-year-old whisky from Springbank. Tickets are $45 each, or $40 each for groups of four or more. Proceeds will go towards Watson’s Mill programming, which is offered year-round for all age groups. For more information call 613-692-6455.

Police, hospital working together EMC news - Ottawa police, in partnership with the Ottawa Hospital, implemented a pilot program in July to deal with mental health calls in the downtown area. The program consists of resident psychiatrists working along with police officers from the mobile crisis team. Team officers and psychia-

trists have worked together over 25 days during the last two months. The teams dealt with approximately 65 calls. Of those, only five resulted in an apprehension where the subject had to be taken to hospital for assessment. The mobile response team can also deal with Mental Health Act apprehension orders

immediately, saving countless hours of wait times at hospitals and allowing officers to return to regular patrol duties sooner. As well, the team doctors can issue prescriptions or follow-up appointments and provide other resources to assist people. The mobile response pilot program will be in place for one year.

Trucks rumble down Bridge Street through Manotick every weekday. Residents have long complained that the village core should not be a truck route, and now Manotick Village Community Association president Klaus Beltzner is hoping to add a city-wide truck route review to the city’s 2013 budget.

Put truck study in budget: Manotick leader Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt said he supports any effort to add the study to the budget as part of the city’s transportation master plan, but staff currently have no plans to include it. “I’m trying to find out more information, and if there’s some wiggle room. It’s definitely something worth exploring,” he said. Staff have maintained that they would like the ongoing interprovincial bridge study to be completed first, and it is scheduled for the end of 2012 or early 2013. “The time is right,” Beltzner said. Moffatt said any changes to the south end’s truck route would likely result in more options for trucks rather than a total elimination from Bridge Street and the village.

Hunt Club Road will be a viable option once it is connected to the 417, he said, and the Strandherd-Armstrong Bridge needs to be considered. “We’ll find a way to work with the trucking community to relieve some pressure and spread it out,” he said. TRUCK CALMING

Beltzner is also calling for a speed reduction from 80 kilometres per hour to 60 km/h on Bankfield Road between Main and Prince of Wales, as part of his “program” to reduce trucks through the village. Beltzner said a study of that section of Bankfield found that one in five, or 20 per cent, of all vehicles were heavy trucks.

“That is way out of line with any other truck routes in the rest of city,” he said, asserting that the road was not made for that kind of volume. Newer roads like Earl Armstrong, however, have been built to higher standards, he said, and are more suitable for heavy truck traffic. The poor infrastructure leads to increased vibrations and noise for nearby residents, which Beltzner said can cause hearing loss over time when the trucks are going 80 km/h. He said reducing the speed to 60 km/h on Bankfield would cut noise and vibrations and encourage trucks to take alternate routes. Moffatt said he has had some complaints about speeding on Bankfield, but it’s not supported by data and

he has not had complaints about noise or vibrations. “Some residents think I’m not listening, but I need evidence and I also need overwhelming support for the change,” he said. Beltzner’s master plan to get trucks out of Manotick rests on making Bridge, Main and Bankfield “less comfortable” for the big rigs. Along with reducing Bankfield’s speed limit, he wants to add parking and cycling lanes on Bridge, and to turn the village’s major intersections at Bridge and Main, Main and Bankfield and Bankfield at Prince of Wales into roundabouts. “It will give some truckers the idea that Strandherd’s 10-lane-wide bridge will be an easier way to go,” he said.

EMC news – As the city prepares its 2013 draft budget, Manotick Village Community Association president Klaus Beltzner is pushing to have a truck route study added to the list. While the $250,000 comprehensive study would be a city-wide review, Beltzner’s motivation is to help his own village solve its longstanding problem of too many trucks using Bridge Street, Main Street and Bankfield Road on their way to Highway 416. He said many roads and the developments around them have changed in south Ottawa since the city’s last truck route review in 2005, and there are gaps in the system – leaving almost all trucks in the area rumbling through Manotick. Limebank’s designation as a truck route is spotty, and the Woodroffe connection at Prince of Wales is due to be closed. Earl Armstrong has changed from a rural twolane road to a four-lane urban arterial – prime truck route potential, he said. With the Strandherd-Armstrong Bridge due for completion sometime next year, the only way to get the new bridge and its connecting roads on to the city’s official truck route is through the study. Adding these roads, he said, will help share the load between communities. “I’m not looking for a total elimination of trucks from Manotick, I’m looking for a sharing of the roads,” he said.

Beltzner said he wants to deal with this issue now before it grows into a situation like the one on King Edward Avenue downtown. “We’ve already seen how bad planning resulted in King Edward being a fiasco. The people on King Edward have had to bear these heavy trucks and all the chaos and loss of life it led to,” he said. Transportation committee chairperson Marianne Wilkinson supports including the truck route study in the transportation master plan scheduled for 2013, but Beltzner said he has met resistance from other councillors such as Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder, who represents residents on the west side of the new bridge. Harder could not be reached for comment by press time.

Landscaping project pushed back to spring More parking, picnic area planned for Glebe centre Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

for the delay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are trying to completely eliminate the danger of children weaving through cars and walking behind cars by moving the sidewalk three feet to the property line,â&#x20AC;? she said. The project will increase the available parking from six spaces and one handicap space to about 18. Bicycle racks will also be added. The current parking area will see grass installed and

turned into a picnic area, something Tsai Davies indicated is missing for the centre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will be an extension of program space for us and will be a beneďŹ t,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is very exciting for us to have more public space.â&#x20AC;? Over the course of the project, some residents have raised concern over the potential loss of trees or added pavement to an area that is already green

space. Tsai Davies said this is not the case. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All we are doing is moving the sidewalk back for safety,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will be no loss of trees and in fact there will be more trees and green space when we are complete.â&#x20AC;? In addition to the picnic area, a community garden is also being planned. This project is completely funded by the community.

The group has raised $80,000 for the parking project, while the landscaping portion, Tsai Davies said, would be more of a community volunteer initiative. She indicated more public consultations will take place in the winter; as well members of the community can participate in the project by working with the steering committee. Comments can be sent to Tsai Davies at tsaidavies@gnag.ca.

EMC news - A landscaping project to add parking and create a permanent outside picnic area for the Glebe Community Centre will not go ahead until next year. The Glebe Neighbourhood Activities Group has been working towards adding more parking and an outside play area at the Glebe Community

Centre for the past three years. The project was set to begin this summer and was delayed to this fall, said Mary Tsai Davies, the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive director, at the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual general meeting on Sept. 26. Now the project will not begin until 2013 because more public consultation is needed, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was supposed to happen this fall, but will be pushed back to the spring,â&#x20AC;? said Tsai Davies, citing safety concerns

Veterans Affairs supports cenotaph restoration emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news – A community group has secured a $3,000 grant from Veterans Affairs to make sure fallen soldiers from the first and second world wars are not forgotten. On Oct. 3, Veterans Affairs Minister Steven Blaney joined Nepean-Carleton MP Pierre Poilievre at the old Metcalfe town hall to announce the grant, which supplements the $4,000 already raised through a community fundraising campaign that began in June. The core fundraising group was founded by local historian Coreen Atkins-Sheldrick, who discovered while writing her book about the township’s military history that as many as 14 names are missing from the First World War and Second World War cenotaphs in Metcalfe. She approached Poilievre for assistance in remedying the oversight and the community rose to the occasion. Large donations from local businesses quickly took the fundraiser over the group’s $3,000 goal. Then legion member and Osgoode Village Community Association director Rob Brewster was able to apply for matching

funds through the Veteran’s Affairs cenotaph and monument restoration program. “I’m so proud of the community I live in, that we were able to do this and it will stand for another 100 years,” Brewster said. Blaney said his department’s restoration program is important because of its communitydriven mandate. “It’s not a $300 billion project, but it’s an important project for the community and those projects have a lasting meaning,” he said. “Everywhere I go I face these memorials and then you understand how rooted is our military past and our history. The least we can do is take care of them.” Adding names to the memorial and restoring it to its original beauty will likely cost about $6,000. Any leftover money will be put aside for future repairs and maintenance. While Atkins-Sheldrick found as many as 14 names that could potentially be tied to the Osgoode area, only four will be added in the restoration project: Private Ernest Lytton Banal, Private William Edward Murphy, Private E. Thomas Henry Poole, and Gunner Arthur Workman. Their names will be added to a new sub-base, which will be

The World War II monument and flag base will also be cleaned and restored. The cause attracted a $2,000 corporate donation from the new Scotia bank branch in Findlay Creek, $1,000 from Giant Tiger and donations from several community organizations. The Vernon Women’s Institute gave $100, the Metcalfe Lions donated $350 and another $500 came from an anonymous donor.

Hi! My name is Don Vito and I am two years old. Like my namesake, I am the head of my household. To preside over my subjects, I often climb on top of the fridge or on the bookshelves. My hobbies include chasing strings, napping in any box I can find, and strategizing escape plots. To keep my family in check, I only let them cuddle me once in a while, but we share a bed every night!
