EMC news – The Ottawa police are concerned about a spike in the number of break and enters in south Ottawa and are asking residents to be on the alert. Thieves are targeting the residential area south of the Ottawa Hospital’s General campus and appear to be focusing on homes under renovation or residences that have contracted renovation companies, according to a police news release. “It looks like there is a pattern of break and enters primarily to sheds and trailers in the Elmavale Acres and Alta Vista area,� said Const. Gary McCoy, community police officer at the South Ottawa Community Police Centre. He added that police have been investigating a number of recent daytime residential break and enters in the Elmvale area of the city. See THIEVES, page 2

Work together to eliminate gangs: forum Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news – Ottawa already knows what it needs to do to reduce gang activity in the city – now, it just needs to make it happen. That was the theme of a discussion at city hall last Wednesday evening during a forum called “Taking Action Together: Addressing Gangs in Our City.� The Oct. 17 event was organized by the Ottawa police, Crime Prevention Ottawa, the Youth Services Bureau and

Ottawa Community Housing, but most of the discussion and questions from members of the public rehashed issues that have been discussed at similar events in the past. “I think these are themes that we’ve heard through our conversations,� said Ottawa police Chief Charles Bordeleau. He added it is still important to listen to those stories and create a dialog about the issues that people are seeing in their communities. The chief said he was pleased with the number of

people who attended and the amount of passion they showed about the issue. A sharp rise in shootings this year reinvigorated the push to end gang violence in Ottawa. There have already been 31 shootings this year as of Oct. 3, more than a 30 per cent increase over last year, said Staff Sgt. Mark Patterson from the police guns and gangs unit There are an estimated 473 people involved in gangs in Ottawa and between 25 and 30 of them are believed to be involved in shootings.

The event began with a panel presentation from Bordeleau, Patterson, Crime Prevention Ottawa executive director Nancy Worsfold and a special guest speaker, Jabari Lindsay, a youth development manager for the City of Toronto. “This is not a problem we can arrest our way out of,� Bordeleau said, emphasizing that solutions must be collaborative and focused on preventing youth from becoming involved with gangs.

Thieves scouting neighbourhoods during day: police R0021686315-1025

Continued from page 1

The break-ins occurred over the past few weeks, with small electronics, money and jewelry targeted. As a result of the followup investigation, a warrant of arrest was issued for seven counts of break and enter and theft and 14 counts of breach of probation for a 28-year-old male, who later turned himself in to the police. Police are asking for the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assistance, regarding a recent rash of residential break and enters.

BREAK AND ENTERS

Sheds and garages are being entered overnight for large tools and equipment. The stolen items would require a commercial type vehicle to remove. McCoy encouraged people to call police if they see anybody suspicious in their neighbourhoods. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The more information we get, the more likely we are to see a pattern and often the pattern tells us who we are look-

ing for,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These people are probably scouting the areas during the day, and come back at night with vehicles to do their crimes.â&#x20AC;? He indicated that police are on top of this and are trying to apprehend the offenders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However we face a difďŹ culty of people often not calling us when they see somebody suspicious on their streets. They tend to call us two or three days after something has happened,â&#x20AC;? said McCoy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a priority for us here at the east division and it is important that residents know that they have the ability if they work together to help us solve this.â&#x20AC;? He said residents can help out by joining Neighbourhood Watch, getting to know their neighbours, calling police when they see something suspicious and calling police when they are the victims of crime. Anyone with information about these occurrences is asked contact the Ottawa police east district break and enter division at 613-236-1222 ext. 3515.

Councillor/Conseillère Quartier Gloucester-Southgate Ward

Casino debate On October 10, City Council voted 19 to 5 in favour of supporting, in principle, a casino for the City of Ottawa. I was one of the ďŹ ve members of Council who opposed this step. What this means is that Council has given the green light to the Mayor to respond to the Ontario Lottery Gaming Corporationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (OLG) Request For Interest indicating that the City supports, in principle, becoming a â&#x20AC;&#x153;host cityâ&#x20AC;? for a gaming entertainment centre. The OLG will then come back to the City with a preferred proponent and location that they have chosen and Council will be asked to say yes or no to their plan. It will be at that time when Council is ďŹ rst provided with a cost-beneďŹ t analysis and the impacts of a gaming facility for our city. I would like to thank the overwhelming number of residents who contacted me to express their support for my vote at Committee and Council against a new casino for Ottawa. Many residents agree that Council should have been provided with all the necessary information, including the social, health, safety, trafďŹ c and economic impacts of a new casino for our city, so that a well-rounded and informed discussion and decision could have been made by Council earlier this month. Many residents are telling me that Council needs a mandate from the public and at the very least, they expect a meaningful public consultation process before a ďŹ nal decision is made.

EMC news - Dalton McGuinty has ruled out a bid for the leadership of the federal Liberals a few days after he announced he was stepping down as Ontario premier. The Ottawa South MPP has decided to look for challenges outside politics altogether. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I made a commitment . . . both to myself and to some supporters to carefully consider a run for the Liberal leader-

GRAND PRIZE

Airport Parkway Pedestrian and Cycling Bridge update As you may be aware, in 2011, the Airport Parkway Pedestrian and Cycling Bridge construction project encountered some unforeseen delays due to deďŹ ciencies in the concrete section of the main bridge tower. The contractor has had crews on site working hard to complete the project, which has included weekends and evenings, as needed, and at no additional expense to the City in order to see this project completed as soon as possible. Throughout the month of September, the contractor, under the supervision of a Self Consolidated Concrete specialist, was re-building the main bridge tower using heavily reinforced formwork panels that can withstand the high pressure that would be created when pouring the concrete from the top. I am pleased let you know that as of October 5, the formwork of the lower tower was removed and City Staff have advised that the concrete looks excellent.

SUITE OF FIVE NEW WHIRLPOOL ENERGY EFFICIENT APPLIANCES If you have signed up for MyHydroLink, e-billing or pre-authorized payment or do so by November 23, 2012, you can enter Hydro Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contest to win a brand new suite of energy efďŹ cient stainless steel appliances, valued at over $8,000 or one of ďŹ ve tablets! Each online service you sign up for gives you another chance to win.

Work is progressing very well on the rest of the project which saw concrete for the west span deck successfully poured at the beginning of the month, along with landscaping, the installation of pathway light poles and fencing along the pathway areas leading to the South Keys Transit Station. Work will start shortly on the upper tower. Once the project is completed (expected spring 2013), residents will have access from the South Keys Transit Station to the pathways around the stormwater management ponds adjacent to the Airport Parkway. City of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new Better Neighbourhoods Program The City of Ottawa is now accepting applications for the new Better Neighbourhoods Program. This program offers assistance to qualiďŹ ed groups for the development of resident-driven improvement projects aimed at building relationships among residents, community groups and the City of Ottawa. Examples of neighbourhood-level projects might include making streets more walkable, park revitalizations or artistic initiatives such as street painting. Projects will be supported ďŹ nancially by the City up to a maximum of $30,000. Three to four neighbourhoods will be selected for the program in 2013 and another three to four in 2014. Interested neighbourhoods or community groups can submit applications until Tuesday, November 27, 2012. For more information, please visit Ottawa.ca or contact my ofďŹ ce at 613-580-2480.

Ward 22 Update

Mothers ‘invisible victims’ of gangs: resident Steve Desroches Deputy Mayor Councillor, Gloucester-South Nepean

Continued from page 1

The plan for the new Lansdowne includes a renovated stadium and Civic Centre, a new city park next to the Rideau Canal and a lively urban village linked to Bank Street with a mixture of stores, restaurants, residences and public spaces. The Lansdowne redevelopment project will create 18.5 acres of park and will include 880 trees, nearly four times the trees and three times the greenspace than what currently exists today. I am pleased to see this historic and important City project moving forward. Christmas Card Design Contest I would like to invite all grade school children in Ward 22 to participate in my annual Christmas Card design contest. Simply draw, sketch, or paint your favourite holiday scene on a white letter-sized piece of paper. Please mail or email your entry to my office by November 23rd, 2012. The winning entry will be used as my Christmas card. My mailing address is 110 Laurier Ave. West, Ottawa, ON, K1P 1J1. By email, I can be reached at Steve. Desroches@Ottawa.ca. I look forward to seeing your artwork. 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.

Ottawa police Chief Charles Bordeleau; Jabari Linsday, youth development manager for the City of Toronto; and Ottawa police Guns and Gangs Unit Staff Sgt. Mark Patterson address a crowd of approximately 200 people at city hall on Oct. 17 to discuss gangs in the city. the city has been willing to give out “really risky grants” to small, community-led groups, to “honour people who have ideas.” When money goes to frontline workers and people directly in the community, there is more chance of success, he said. The most poignant moment of the evening came when a woman gave an emotional plea for the city to acknowledge and assist the “invisible victims”: mothers of the young people involved in gang activity. “Those men, respect their mothers. You need to talk to them,” she said. Lindsay agreed, saying he always had utmost respect for his own mother during his wayward youth and that has led him to ensure he connects

current gang members in those kinds of discussions. In an interview after the forum, Bordeleau said the police service has connected with former gang members in the past and found it very helpful, but he stressed that he would greatly appreciate anyone who could direct him to a gang-involved young person who is willing to speak to the police. Planning for the forum began in July, after Premier Dalton McGuinty announced $12.5 million for violenceprevention programs, including $7.5 million for the Provincial Anti-Violence Intervention Strategy that funds the Ottawa police’s DART (Direct Action Response Team) unit, which deals with gun and gang crime.

with mothers of the youth he works with in Toronto. Reaching out to people directly affected and involved with gang activity was also on the mind of Sandy Hill resident Christien Levien. He called on the police to reach out directly to youth involved in gangs in order to create an effective solution. “We won’t hear their voices, because they’re not here,” Levien said. “They will be further marginalized.” Creating a “collaborative solution,” as the city says it wants to do, involves collaborating with people directly involved with the problem – not just city departments and agencies, Levien said. “We’re open to that,” Bordeleau said, adding that it is extremely difficult to engage

Council Gives Final Endorsement to Lansdowne Redevelopment I am pleased to announce that City Council has given the green light on the final approvals to begin the construction of a revitalized Lansdowne Park.

“We don’t have to reinvent the wheel. All we have to do is look beyond our borders and see what we can adapt to use in our community,” Bordeleau said. “A multifaceted solution that involves the whole community is the answer.” Lindsay shared one tip that resonated with the panel and audience: we can’t forget to “help the helpers.” Healing communities is about taking care of the people who are addressing these issues in the community, too, he said. Afterwards, around 200 people in attendance had a chance to share their thoughts, stories and questions with the panel. One resident, Frank Reid, thanked organizers for putting together the forum because too often, these types of discussions happen at the national level. “This is where it impacts the community the most, locally,” Reid said. Mohamed Sofa, a community activist from PinecrestQueensway who now lives in Beacon Hill-Cyrville, said forums alone are not going to make a difference. “We have more policing, more public forums and no more programs,” Sofa said. “That’s not a recipe for success.” He said Ottawa is very bureaucratic and has historically not been willing to take a risk and provide grants to fund grassroots community projects. “How can we take this discussion to the neighbourhoods and provide funding that will change lives?” said Sofa.

Findlay Creek residents press for new elementary school eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC news – The need for a new elementary school in Findlay Creek dominated discussion at a community association meeting held at Fred Barrett Arena on Oct. 19. Area trustee Mark Fisher, who attended the meeting, said he was optimistic the planned closure of Elizabeth Park Public School in 2017 could speed up plans to build a new school in Findlay Creek. “We now have a decision on Elizabeth Park Public School in terms of the lease arrangement of that school. They have given the board an indication that they would like to terminate that lease come 2017. We now have an end-point to that school and we have presented that to the ministry,” Fisher told the gathering. The building that houses Elizabeth Park is currently leased by the Ottawa public school board from the Department of National Defence. Fisher maintained he is still aiming at 2014-15 as the opening date for the new Findlay Creek school. “I would say that we have actually made some positive progress. We own a shovel ready sight and that is a good thing in terms of the business case that we presented to the Ministry of Education. They very much like shovel ready

sites,” he said. Earlier this summer, Findlay Creek parents presented a petition with 565 signatures calling on the school board to begin an accommodation review. But a full-blown accommodation review in Findlay Creek is unnecessary said school board staff. “In their opinion, it is a straightforward quick review in terms of the grade structure for the new school, looking at a potential boundary and looking at other minor adjustments that might be made to other neighbouring schools,” said Fisher. According to the community association’s survey, 190 children from Findlay Creek are currently attending Elizabeth Park, 35 attend Blossom Park Public, 10 attend Sawmill Creek Elementary, five attend Roberta Bondar Public, five attend Leitrim Montessori and one is enrolled at Westboro Academy. The survey also found there are 75 children in the Findlay Creek area under the age of four who would attend the new school if it opened in 2014. During the question and answer period some residents expressed frustration than delays in a school opening are forcing many families out of Findlay Creek. “We’ve seen parents leaving Findlay Creek because of lack of a public elementary school,” said Sumana Jana, chair of

Unfortunately, most calls aren’t from prospective buyers, but rather from every real estate agent in town who will start to hound you for your listing. Like other “For Sale by Owners”, you’ll be subjected to a hundred sales pitches from agents who will tell you how great they are and how you can’t possibly sell your home by yourself. After all, without the proper information, selling a home isn’t easy. Perhaps you’ve had your home on the market for several months with no offers from qualified buyers.

Boredom, revisited: maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a killer, too

Lynda Lane redesign tops Alta Vista priorities

E

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Issues ranging from safe streets, infrastructure development and ward budget priorities dominated a town hall meeting hosted by Alta Vista Coun. Peter Hume on Oct. 16. At the meeting, Hume was seeking to get residentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ideas and feedback for the coming 2013 budget. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Naturally I am always seeking feedback on what you, the citizens, want to see happen with your tax dollars,â&#x20AC;? said Hume. He said with the 2013 budget, residents were going to see a budget that is respectful of their taxes that they pay but yet seeks to move Ottawa forward. He said his priorities for the 2013 submission would include building sidewalks for Saunderson Drive and Blair Street and implementing the Lynda Lane redesign plan. In the past, nearby residents have complained of crowded parking on Lynda Lane and the councillor said he wants to make it safe for everybody. Other projects on his radar this coming year include, building sidewalks on Belfast

very evening, my younger son returns home from school on the verge of

rage. After a few minutes of quiet time and some protein to balance his blood sugar, I sit him down at the table to do an hour of homework. One hour! Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in grade one. The exercises include reading monosyllables over and over again, a rapid phonics method Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen work well to teach kids how to read. But, to quote my sixyear-old, â&#x20AC;&#x153;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so boring.â&#x20AC;? And then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the math â&#x20AC;&#x201C; reading numbers from one to 40, then one to 60, then one to 100 on a grid. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so boring.â&#x20AC;? Presumably these are the same exercises my active son has to endure day-in, day-out in the classroom. Midway through the second month of the term, he stood up in protest against this assault on his senses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to school anymore. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too boring. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to read le, la, me, il. I want to read real books. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to sit and listen to everyone in the class read this over and

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse over again. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m staying home and you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make me go to school EVER again.â&#x20AC;? Yikes! Really, I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t blame him. It got me thinking about the way in which our kids are forced to spend their days -- being chronically bored. A few weeks ago in this space, I wrote about the value of boredom â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the idea that allowing kids unstructured time forces them to tap into their creativity and discover interesting activities. But in a new film, entitled Boredom, Montreal filmmaker Albert Nurenberg argues that too much boredom â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially enforced boredom â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will kill you. He asserts that long periods of boredom equate to a form of chronic stress on our bodies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The moment you become bored, there is an increase in the stress hormone cortisol,â&#x20AC;?

Nerenberg told TheMonitor. ca. Anyone who knows anything about cortisol will understand itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s linked to increased cholesterol, raised blood pressure, obesity and heart disease. The experts interviewed in Nurenbergâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s film go further, connecting prolonged periods of boredom to risk-taking behaviour, (think of teenagers left too long to their own resources), restlessness, drug and alcohol abuse, extreme depression and even suicide. Nurenberg apologetically takes on the public education system as an institution that fuels an atmosphere of chronic boredom, forcing inherently active children to sit still and do rote learning for more than six hours each day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You take a child whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s full of energy and full of

curiosity and you make him sit at the same desk hour after hour after hour controlled by the clock and by the bell,â&#x20AC;? quips one interviewee in the film. Others cite the fearful outcome of this â&#x20AC;&#x201C; violent, depressed, drug-addicted teens and adults. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enough to scare any parent. What to do? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m reluctant to take on a public education system that I see working for most, including my eldest child. But I do see a reason to tackle my youngest sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boredom in the area I have the most control â&#x20AC;&#x201C; homework. Instead of sitting down for an hour to repeat numbers and letters over and over again, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re taking monosyllables and mathematics outside. Shoot a basket, read a syllable. Run around the yard, read a syllable. Slide down the slide, read a syllable. Play hide nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; seek, count to 100 (over and over and over again). It may take twice as much time, but at least my son and I will keep our cortisol levels in check and perhaps it will prolong our lives as well.

Road between Coventry and Tremblay roads, and the resurfacing of Russell Road, St. Laurent Boulevard and Walkley Road. TAXES

Mayor Jim Watson who was invited to speak at the meeting said the tax rate this year was brought down to 2.39 per cent, the lowest it has been in five years. He said the current single largest infrastructure project in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history is light rail. The 13-kilometre project will cost $2.1 billion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is an opportunity for us to help transform the city. The project will help transport people out of downtown very quickly,â&#x20AC;? Watson said. Peter Hume said he was hopeful the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s light-rail project will transform the areas around some of the proposed east-end stations. The city hopes the combination of mixed-use buildings within 800 metres of each LRT stop, with more shops and wider sidewalks closer to stations will attract 10,000 people to each neighbourhood within 20 years. After transit, Watson said Lansdowne was the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next largest project.

OPINION EDITORIAL

City should consider a pay-as-you-go future

C

ity councillors are in an unenviable position as they begin to tackle the next budget. The costs of Lansdowneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rebuilding lie ahead while taxpayers remember the sinkhole on highway 174. What to do, what to do? It would be nice to build new things â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an opera house, a new main library or affordable housing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but each project comes with two costs: the up-front bill for construction

and the long-term cost of maintenance. No one wants to end up at the bottom of a sinkhole. We need only look down the (provincially-maintained) highway to Montreal to see how bad things can get. Lumps of cement falling off bridges, rust eating away at metal spans and commuters who must keep an eye out for other cars, pedestrians and the occasional falling bridge. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not there yet and we

donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to arrive there any time soon. As many an expert has told city council, if you delay scheduled maintenance of your infrastructure, you end up paying more in the long run. One example is Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public housing, which provides a double-whammy. The existing homes need upkeep and we need more houses for low-income families. A new Lansdowne Park will be welcome and the deal is done, but other capital

expenditures should be carefully reviewed before going ahead. Better to spend any money we have on maintaining what we already own than to head out and buy more stuff: bridges, highways and roads. During austere economic times, few taxpayers would oppose frugal city spending. Many would applaud it. Any true fiscal conservative in this city should be willing to forego the possibility of new-fangled build-

ings and roads and should also get behind the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s policy of intensification over suburban sprawl. New neighbourhoods on the edge of town cost us all mightily when it comes time to run pipes, wires and buses to the new residents that move in. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s whole financial system deserves a rethink. Maybe now is the time for the city to toss away the credit cards and live within its means. Instead of borrow-

ing to build new stuff, put the brakes on spending until we can operate on a pay-asyou-go basis. It would mean years of limited new stuff but the payoff comes after the hard work, when new projects can go ahead without need for borrowing and debt. In the meantime, city councillors should focus on the most pressing business: maintaining what we already own. The sky is not falling, but the road might.

A history museum? Why not? CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

O

f course everyone is suspicious these days that when it was announced that the Museum of Civilization was going to become the Canadian Museum of History, people assumed the worst. Or at least some people. The Museum of Canadian History was going to become an instrument of Conservative partisanship. Hall 1: How Sir John A. Macdonald invented Canada. Hall 2: The War of 1812. Hall 3: How the Liberals destroyed Canada. Hall 4: The Royal Family. Hall 5: How Stephen Harper saved Canada. Then you exit through the gift shop, where on sale are fridge magnets with the Free Trade Agreement printed on them, maps of Canada where Alberta is unusually large and several of the smaller provinces are missing, Stephen Harperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book about hockey and autographed copies of the Marketing Freedom for Grain Farmers Act. Such are the times we live in. Nothing a politician does is above suspicion. But when you step back and look at it objectively, a Museum of Canadian History is not that bad a thing. There is no such thing now and every serious capital needs one. The late lamented Portrait Gallery was a step in that direction, a chance for us to have a look at important Canadians past and present, but it perished for a variety of reasons, some of them political. It is often said that Canada has a rich and colourful history. And it is said equally often that most Canadians donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know that Canada has a rich and colourful history. That, obviously,

has a lot to do with what is and isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t taught in schools. But it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help that there is no single place Canadians can go and see their history portrayed in a vivid way. Properly done, the History Museum could accomplish a lot. Think of the Canadian War Museum and how compellingly the war years are portrayed there. There is much of our history that is not about war, but no reason that it canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be portrayed compellingly, too. Think beyond war to the events and people who made this country, many of them uncelebrated, except perhaps in small museums in their birthplaces â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the explorers, politicians, rebels, artists, scientists and entrepreneurs. If you are in Batoche, Sask., you can see a great Louis Riel exhibition. If you are in Grand PrĂŠ, N.S., you can learn about the expulsion of the Acadians. If you are in Neepawa, Man., you can visit Margaret Laurenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house and learn about her life. We need to see all that here too, in a national museum. Not everyone can get to Neepawa or Batoche or Grand PrĂŠ. There would be a lot to put into this museum and locating it in Ottawa is a positive step. Ottawa is where the history museum belongs because the capital is the logical place for people to come and view their history. Anyone who has visited Washington knows how impressively American history is assembled and presented. No reason we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do that here. In a perfect world, a brand new museum would be constructed, a grand edifice somewhere along Confederation Boulevard (remember Confederation Boulevard?), but the times are less than perfect and governments are done with putting up grand edifices. So we lose the Museum of Civilization. That museum, as it turns out, is Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most popular, but it has always lacked a clear identity. This change will give it one. Combined with the National Gallery, the War Museum and the Museum of Nature, the new museum will present visitors with a well-rounded picture of the kind of country Canada is and has been. That would be great to show visitors to Canada and even greater to show Canadians.

Make cycling irresistible to make it a success: expert risk averse, so if conditions encourage them to cycle, it’s probably a good environment for other categories of cyclists, too.

Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Getting people on bicycles is about convincing them it’s not just something they do – it’s something that’s impossible for them to resist doing. That was the message delivered by keynote speaker Ralph Buehler during the annual general meeting of local bicycle advocacy group Citizens for Safe Cycling. More than 100 people gathered at Tom Brown Arena in Hintonburg to hear Buehler’s advice, culled from his research as an assistant professor of urban affairs and planning at Virginia Tech University and as the co-author of an upcoming book called City Cycling. Cycling is on an upward trend in cities all around the world, Buehler said, but a comprehensive approach is needed to keep it that way. Building bicycle lanes alone is not enough, Buehler said. If a city really wants to make strides, it needs to consider bike parking, bike-sharing programs, marketing, and broader things like driver education and favourable zoning rules for compact, mixed-use communities. “Public policies are crucial to making cycling more attractive and to make cycling safer,” Buehler said.

SAFETY

LAURA MUELLER/METROLAND

Trinity-Spadina MP Olivia Chow spoke to around half of Citizens for Safe Cycling’s 200 members during the group’s Oct. 16 annual general meeting at Tom Brown Arena. As Ottawa embarks on its ambitious, $2.1-billion light rail project, Buehler spoke about the mutual benefits of integrating cycling into transit systems. “Integration with public transit can be beneficial for both modes,” Buehler said. From a transit perspective, providing bike parking at transit stations or allowing bikes aboard transit vehicles, can increase the catchment area for the transit system. While cities look at a walking

distance of about 600 or 800 metres to a major transit hub, encouraging people to cycle to the station can make transit a more attractive option to people who live or work farther away, Buehler said. One public policy that is picking up steam in cyclingfriendly cities around the world is the “green wave”: co-ordinating traffic signals along a street so that they will all be green for someone travelling at approximately the speed of a bicycle.

At the same time that cities create policies to encourage bicycle use, they also need to look at creating disincentives for driving, Buehler said. In Canada, an average of 1.3 per cent of all trips are made by bicycle. That’s slightly higher than the United States, but much lower than the Netherlands – the world leader – at 26 per cent, and even Germany at 10 per cent. Much of that has to do with the traditional use of bicycles that shaped peoples’ attitudes

towards cycling. In North America, it largely began as a recreational pursuit, while in western Europe bicycles have always been under the transportation umbrella. On a local level, Ottawa’s 2.2 per cent bicycle share has a long way to go to catch up to Victoria at 9.5 per cent or Vancouver at 3.7 per cent. One way to get there is to encourage women to bike. Women are an “indicator species,” Buehler said. Research shows that women are more

Another speaker, Olivia Chow, MP for Trinity-Spadina in Toronto, brought her message of cycling safety to the meeting as well. Chow is sponsoring a private member’s bill aimed at requiring transport trucks to have sideguards installed – barriers between the cab and the trailer wheels that prevent cyclists and pedestrians from being fatally pulled under the back wheels of a right-turning truck. Not only do the guards save lives, Chow said, in the low run they also reduce emissions and save money on fuel costs for trucks because they make the vehicles more aerodynamic. Safety is also on the minds of Citizens for Safe Cycling members. The group is holding its first-ever bike-light giveaway, with more than 200 lights to be given away to help cyclists make themselves more visible as the days get darker. The event is happening on Nov. 1 from 4 to 6 p.m. at an undisclosed location. Check safecycling.ca for the location to be revealed closer to the event.

Council ponders lowering garbage bag limit Biweekly trash pickup starts next week

GREEN BIN TIPS

- Line your pail and green bin and wrap waste with newspaper to avoid odours - Same goes for emptying the pail: If you don’t want to purchase liner bags, visit ottawa.ca/greenbin for a video on how to make a liner “bag” out of newspaper - Cardboard containers such as cereal boxes can also be used - If your bin has maggots, put vinegar or salt on them to kill them - A container of vinegar covered in plastic wrap with holes poked in it will capture fruit flies - If you’re worried about smell, sprinkle laundry detergent, garden lime or baking soda in your bin - You can also freeze meat and fish waste and put it in the bin on collection day - Spray your bin with cooking spray to avoid items freezing to it

Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - City council may ask residents if they are OK with a four-bag limit on garbage day. Garage collection will switch permanently to a biweekly schedule on Oct. 29, meaning trash will be collected every two weeks year round, while organics and recycling bins will be picked up weekly. The move is an effort to bring Ottawa closer to its landfill diversion goal, but it won’t be easy to reduce garbage if the city continues to allow people to put out six bags of garbage every two weeks, Alta Vista Coun. Peter Hume told the environment committee on Oct. 16. Right now, households are allowed to put out three bags each week, and that number was simply doubled with the collection changes. That’s a high number of bags that no other municipality that offers organics recycling allows, Hume said. Switching to biweekly pickup is expected to divert an additional 10,000 to 20,000 tonnes of organic waste from the landfill, said Dixon Weir, the city’s general manager of environmental services. That will boost the diversion rate from the current 44 per cent to around 54 per cent. HOUSEHOLD WASTE

• Garbage: The amount of trash sent to the landfill increased to 159,579 tonnes in 2011, up from 158,698 tonnes in 2010 • Blue bin: With the addition of new types of plastics to the collection in 2011, the city collected slightly more in the blue bin – 15, 955 tonnes, up from 15,321 tonnes in 2010. • Black bin: Paper and card-

Garbage collection will change to every two weeks starting Oct. 29, while green bin pick up and recycling will continue to happen every week. But that still leaves Ottawa 15,000 tonnes short of its 60 per cent diversion target, said Rainer Bloess, the councillor for Innes Ward. “It’s going to undermine our drive to make maximum use of the investment we’ve made in our green bin,” he said. “We’re afraid to take the big step and say we need to do this because it’s the right thing to do.” Rideau-Goulbourn Coun.

board recycling dropped to 43,604 tonnes in 2011, down from 44,602 tonnes in 2010. • Green bin: In 2010, 53,349 tonnes of organic waste were collected from Ottawa homes; in 2011, that number rose only slightly to 55,063. • Leaf and yard waste: Organics recycling for leaf and yard waste decreased slightly, from 9,677 tonnes in 2010 to 9,428 tonnes in 2011.

Scott Moffatt said it would be redundant for city staff to look at a bag-limit reduction in isolation, since there is currently a city-wide waste master plan review happening. Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley said he was also against reducing the garbagebag limit, because the collection changes are already enough of a difficult transition for families. Besides, the bag limit isn’t enforced and there is resistance from people un-

willing to use their green bins, so figuring out a way to make the green-bin program work is a better plan, Hubley said. The city is currently only focusing on residential waste collection and has yet to roll out the green-bin program to apartment buildings before ICI collection is even considered. Weir said city staff expect to hit the goal of a 60 per cent diversion rate by the end of this new waste contract, which will be in 2016.

TRASH ALERTS

The city is offering some high-tech tools to make the transition easier for residents. With the new web-based collection calendar tool, peeking out the front door to see if your neighbours put out their trash will be a thing of the past, IT subcommittee chairman Coun. Tim Tierney said. The tool offers a searchable online calendar, as well as weekly collection reminders by phone, email or Twitter.

You can also choose whether you want the alerts to arrive the evening before or the morning of your collection day. Information can be found at ottawa.ca/en/garbage_recycle/. As of last Monday, four days after its launch, there were more than 5,300 searches logged and 1,337 people signed up for household reminders. The new web tool will also make it possible to add solid waste collection data to the city’s open data catalogue, which people can use for research or to development web or mobile applications.

Mayor has no plans to leave city hall Watson rejects opportunity to seek provincial Liberal leadership midway through his term Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

FILE

Mayor Jim Watson with his binder of campaign promises in his office last year. lor colleagues rejected earlier this year – he does not support term limits for politicians. “We have term limits. It’s called the voters,” he said. Watson will again be looking to voters to support his vision for a “more co-operative, collaborative approach” at city hall when he runs for

re-election in 2014. The restoration of decorum and collaboration amongst city councillors is the achievement Watson has consistently listed as his top accomplishment since his re-election as mayor on Oct. 25, 2010 with 48.7 per cent of the vote. That stability and co-op-

eration extends into the public service, too. Relations with OC Transpo workers and their union, The Amalgamated Transit Union Local 279, have never been better, Watson said, pinning the credit directly on his newly appointed OC Transpo general manager, John Manconi, who took over after former GM Alain Mercier was fired in February. “It’s just a world of differ-

ence what was there even two year ago to what’s there today in terms of what John Manconi has brought to the table and the transit commission,” he said. All of the major labour union agreements for the city have been settled with increases at or below the rate of inflation, Watson said. Watson recently checked approvals for the Lansdowne reconstruction project off his

EMC news - Jim Watson has marked the halfway point in his new term as mayor, and if he has his way he won’t be leaving anytime soon. One of the biggest carrots of his political career was dangled in front of him last week: the possibility of leading the provincial Liberal party, for which he served as a cabinet minister in the 2000s. After Premier Dalton McGuinty announced he was stepping down from that role, Watson immediately and flatly rejected a leadership bid. “I’m very, very happy here. I’ve worked on Parliament Hill and served at Queen’s Park and I’ve been at city hall, and by far the most fulfilling for me, and where I think I can contribute the most, is at city hall,” he said. Watson said he can’t see himself heading back to Queen’s Park or Parliament Hill because he’s very happy at city hall. Municipalities are the most productive level of government, Watson said, because they “don’t get bogged down in the name calling and pettiness of politics.” “When I see what goes on on Parliament Hill and at Queen’s Park – all of the divisiveness, rancor and arguing, I don’t’ miss those,” he said. “I find that those two levels of government have become overly or hyper-partisan.” While Watson supported reducing the size of city council and re-drawing the ward boundaries – a bid his council-

to-do list, and by the new year, he an city council will have chosen a builder for the first phase of the city’s lightrail line running under the downtown. Both projects have been in discussions for more than a decade in various forms, and now Watson is happy to count them among the 85 per cent of election promises he’s already completed, with half of his term still to go. The next two years will be about “staying the course,” and living within our means, the mayor said. “The easy part is voting on these big projects. The tougher part is implementing them to make sure they are on time and on budget,” Watson said. The EMC interviewed the mayor two days before the 2013 budget was to be released, but the budget will also reflect his “stay the course” mentality, Watson said. He plans to maintain his commitment to freezing recreation fees, and the focus will be on continuing the Ottawa on the Move program to fix our existing infrastructure. “We don’t have an unlimited supply of dollars to put into new initiatives. We’ve got a lot on our plate now,” Watson said. He reiterated that the highway 174 sinkhole this fall and the Woodroffe Avenue water main break and outdoor water ban in 2011 were good reminders that we need to take care of our existing infrastructure. “It was a good reminder of how we need to take care of our basic infrastructure needs first and foremost before we reach too far afield for new projects,” Watson said. For that reason, Watson said he won’t be supporting a new Main library branch downtown, but he applauded library board chairwoman Coun. Jan Harder’s call to find innovative ways to refurbish the existing Metcalfe Street branch. “Let’s fix what we have instead of reaching beyond our means, at least in the short term,” Watson said. “I think that’s t prudent approach that I’d take. I think we need to get the basics right, first and foremost.”

Slices for Smiles fundraiser returns to CHEO Eddie Rwema eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC news - Pizza Pizza kicked off its Slices for Smiles fundraiser with a pizza party at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario on Oct. 18. A number of kids at CHEO put on their chef hats for a pizza-making lesson that will celebrate the four-week fundraiser, which begins Oct. 15 and ends Nov.11. Pizza Pizza will donate a portion of the proceeds from its $2 “smile” pizzas and its $4.99 12-inch medium pepperoni pizzas to Children’s Miracle Network hospitals across Canada. Children’s Miracle Network raises funds for 170 children’s hospitals, 14 of which are in Canada. These hospitals, in turn, use the money where it’s needed the most. When a donation is given, it stays in the community, ensuring that every dollar is helping local kids. Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network has raised tens of millions of dollars for children’s health care most of it $1 at a time. These donations have gone to support research and training, purchase specialized equipment, and ensure excellence in care. “This program gives us the opportunity to give back to children who are our future,”

said Paulo Calvalho, sponsorship manager with Pizza Pizza. He said the funds raised provide much needed funds to local children’s hospitals which support critical care, leading edge research and educational programs. “We want to bring hope, awareness and raise money to develop new machinery and new research that would hopefully help cure diseases that are out there affecting our children,” said Calvalho. Since 2007, when Pizza Pizza started the Slices for Smiles fundraiser, more than $1 million has been raised for children’s charities across Canada. “We just reached our $1 million dollar mark. We are very happy about that, and we are very much looking forward to continue raising more money as possible to all children’s hospitals across Canada,” said Calvalho. The support of organizations like Pizza Pizza allows the hospital to buy the necessary equipment that makes this place important and helps medical professionals give not just great care but the excellence of care that the kids deserve, said Norma Lamont, vice president for community development with CHEO Foundation. “It is all about putting smiles on the kid’s faces at our hospi-

Bikeway plans miss the mark, residents say laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news – The small things that make a big difference for cyclists are on their way to the streets of Ottawa. People gathered at Patro D’Ottawa in Lowertown on Oct. 18 to see how the city plans to spend $5 million to connect existing bicycling lanes to create an east-west “bikeway.” The changes aren’t huge, but there is a big improvement to be made by adding things like sharrows – chevron pavement markings indicating that bicycles and cars should share the lane – and green-painted bike boxes to give cyclists an advance start at intersections, said the project manager, Zlatko Krustlic. Eventually, the bikeway will connect Vanier to Westboro through the downtown core, but the portion presented on Oct. 18 covered the section from the St. Patrick Bridge to the Laurier Bridge. That includes existing bicycle lanes on Stewart and Wilbrod streets, which will remain, but will be resurfaced for improved water drainage. In most places, the bike-lane markings will provide a halfmetre painted “buffer.” There is also a proposal to remove two stop signs on Wilbrod: at Nelson Street and at Augusta Street. John Verbaas, a cyclist and the transportation committee chairman for Action Sandy

Hill, advised that the city should consider adding speed humps at those intersections to keep traffic speeds down. Sandy Hill resident and cyclist Tom Barber said he can’t understand why the bikeway isn’t proposed to follow a more obvious, direct route over the Mackenzie-King Bridge to Albert and Slater streets, which currently form the downtown spine of the bus Transitway. Another city study called Downtown Moves is looking at possibilities for more active transportation modes on those streets when most buses are removed when the city gets its underground light-rail line completed in 2018.

traffic flow. Details are still being worked out and the decision will depend on feedback from the public consultation. Krustlic said the final design will be released when a decision is made, but the lane changes might have to wait for a couple years. There are long-term plans to resurface the bridge within the next few years and it might make more sense to make changes to the bike lanes at that time. The rest of the changes presented on Oct. 18 are expected to be done in 2013. Most of the remaining sections, especially in the west end, will be completed in 2014. Plans will be available later this year.

TABARET CUT-THROUGH

The plan would also require the removal of seven off-peak parking spaces on Laurier Avenue at the University of Ottawa, between the Transitway and Cumberland, and another 15 parking spaces on Cumberland south of Laurier. The university and the church at Laurier and Cumberland, St. Joseph’s Parish, are OK with that plan, said Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury. It also means Laurier would be reduced to one lane westbound in that section, where there are currently two lanes. A bike box would be added to facilitate eastbound cyclists turning left from Laurier to Cumberland to go north towards the ByWard Market (and the bike lane on Wil-

Verbaas said the Cumberland turn is the second-best option. Cyclists often already use the pedestrian crosswalk west of Cumberland to get to a private road/pathway through the University of Ottawa campus in front of Tabaret Hall, therefore avoiding the Cumberland intersection entirely. Removing parking and reducing the westbound lanes for vehicle traffic will also be unpopular

and could cause congestion in that busy area, Verbaas said. It’s also more expensive for the city to implement, he added. “That Tabaret Hall area is totally private property for the university,” Krustlic said. “We have to rely on a solution where all the parties involved are supportive of it.” The university had yet to respond to a request for comment as of this papers deadline.

ST. PATRICK BRIDGE

The St. Patrick Bridge is often considered to be a dangerous and intimidating place to cycle, but there are improvements coming. The city presented two options for the eastbound section: keeping the “floating” bike lane between traffic lanes or pushing the bike lane against the right curb and having cyclists cross the right turning lane back into main

For the first time in Ottawa, the city is proposing a pilot project to use green boulevards to separate bike lanes and collect and treat rainwater at the same time. The idea is proposed for two blocks of Stewart Street between King Edward Avenue and Friel Street. The “bioretention” boulevards look just like regular grass boulevards, said city engineer Darlene Conway, but they have dips in the curb to allow rainwater that collects on the road to flow into the grassed section. “Most people wouldn’t know the difference,” Conway said.

Vanier centre hosts Halloween party michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Candy, neighbours and fun: that is what’s planned for an upcoming neighbourhood Halloween party in Vanier. The Vanier Community Service Centre will host the free event in the Partage Vanier parking lot from 5:30 to 8 p.m. on Oct. 31 for children, parents and residents to come out, have some hot chocolate or cider, eat some candy and enjoy meeting old and new neighbours alike. The event is the evolution of the Vanier Beautification committee’s walkabouts, held annually, to help keep a watchful eye on the neighbourhood children. Community liaison officer for the resource centre, Stefan Cherry, thought it would be a great opportunity to expand the event and create a larger community outing. “This is a joint effort,” Cherry said. “And everyone is welcome to come out. People, pets, costumes are encour-

aged.” The event is being pegged as a safe zone for children. It will be well lit and offer a place for residents to meet up, either before the trick-or-treating begins or after. “It is to be considered a safe zone,” Cherry said. “A safe, warm gathering space.” Cherry worked with Beautification members as well as members from the Vanier Community Association’s health and safety committee, to organize the event. “This is a really great idea,” said Marguerite Beaulieu, cochairwoman of the committee. The event will have more than just drinks and candy for the children: there will also be mini flashlights available for residents to use while trick-ortreating. All residents are welcome to come out. Beautification member Lucie Marleau would like residents to know the walkabout will still take place and residents are also encouraged to participate, adding costumes are a must.

Changes to put new street food on city’s menu Committee approves looser food truck rules, adds more spots Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news – Looser proposed rules governing food trucks in the city would mean that 20 vehicles would be able to begin operating next year, but some councillors are worried the changes will make Ottawa look like a nanny state. The eased licensing laws for food trucks are meant to inspire creative chefs and entrepreneurs to expand the street food offerings in Ottawa. To that end, the process will include a selection panel that would be charged with ensuring the new offerings contribute to making the city more vibrant, but not to dictate menu items. The panel is meant to ensure the best and most creative new vendors get a crack at one of the 20 new spaces (there are also 16 existing vacant spots), said Bay Ward Coun. Mark Taylor, the chairman of the city’s community and protective services committee. The new rules still have to be endorsed by full city council, but Taylor’s committee voted in support of the changes – with all members expect

for College Ward Coun. Rick Chiarelli in favour. “I think our job is to determine how many vehicles there should be and where they should be and leave it up to the vendors to decide what to serve,” Chiarelli said. “It’s not our job to engineer menus.” Councillors Jan Harder (Barrhaven) and Eli El-Chantiry (West Carleton-March) also expressed concerns about the risk of dictating the type of food to be served, but they voted in support of the rules in the end. But Philip Powell, the city staffer who worked on the new rules, said they were specifically designed to “look big” and be flexible instead of being prescriptive. He said the looser regulations are an opportunity for “cultural celebration” in the city. Taylor said he hopes ethnic cuisines and hip, urban foods take over from hot dogs and poutine. Aside from a Thai-themed truck near city hall and Stone Soup’s truck at the University of Ottawa, there is very little variety in Ottawa’s street food. That’s not because the city tells vendors what to sell, but rather because the restrict-

LAURA MUELLER/METROLAND

The city has drafted new food truck rules in hopes of seeing more unique street food vendors like Dung Li’s Thai soup truck that has parked at Elgin and Lisgar streets in Centretown for the past five months. ed size of the trucks allowed limits food storage and cooking options, Taylor said. Easing the restriction even slightly from one metre wide to 1.2 metres wide will make a positive difference, said street-food vendor Terry Scanlon. He has operated his truck for 30 years, but says he welcomes the new rules that will

bring more vendors like him to the streets. “I know from experience, you have to have the space to produce the product,” Scanlon said. Scanlon also supports a regulated distance of 46 metres between a food truck and a restaurant. The distance can breed tension between street vendors and traditional res-

taurants because lower overhead costs mean the trucks can undercut the prices restaurants charge. Maintaining the right distance reduces tension, Scanlon said. Powell looked to international street-food leaders like Portland, Ore., to compare rules. In Portland, the vast majority of food trucks are

set up on private property and that’s ideally where Powell would like to see Ottawa’s street-food scene evolve. The process will be slightly easier for vendors on private property – they won’t be vetted by the expert panel. City council was set to vote on the new rules on Wednesday Oct. 24, after this newspaper’s deadline.

Important changes are coming on October 29 1. Bi-weekly garbage collection. Household residual garbage will be collected every two weeks.

2. New collection days. If your collection day is changing the City will send you a letter in October.

3. Green bin pickup.

Keeping kids warm, one snowsuit at a time Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - With winter fast approaching, the Snowsuit Fund has already handed out thousands of donated suits and to keep up with the demand, the organization says it needs more hands on deck. “Volunteers are vital to our operation,” said Joanne Andrews, executive director of the fund. The Snowsuit Fund Depot, located at 225 Donald St., officially launched its 2012 campaign on Oct. 16. The launch welcomed cheques from community corporate partners Tim Hortons and Canadian Tire. Bill Houldsworth, a local Tim Hortons store manager, presented the non-profit organization a cheque for $96,157 -money collected through the company’s Smile Cookie

campaign. Every $40 raised, Andrews said buys a snowsuit, meaning the Tim Hortons donation will purchase 2,400 snowsuits. But this is a number that barely covers one week’s worth of demand from clients, Andrews said. “We distribute about 300 to 400 a day, with 5,000 suits distributed so far,” she said. Last year the organization handed out 15,000 suits, a number Andrews said will grow this year. As the only full time employee, Andrews said volunteers are the backbone the organization needs to survive. “The depot is full today with people looking for suits,” Andrews said. “It takes a lot of people’s help to make it run smoothly

here and you can really see the difference when we have a group of dedicated volunteers. Without them, we would be able to do what we do.” The Snowsuit Fund opened its doors to families in need in the Ottawa region 31 years ago, providing warm winter clothing, from suits, hats to mitts and scarves. As part of one family that has benefited from the service for the past 15 years, Melanie Barbeau said without it, her family’s home life

would be much harder. “It means a great deal,” Barbeau said. “From extra food, outings, anything, this helps make it easier.” Barbeau’s three-yearold son, Camille, had the chance to pick out a suit at the launch. A hockey fan, he chose an Ottawa Senators snowsuit. This was good news to the honorary co-chairpersons for the fund, Senators defenceman Chris Phillips and his wife, Erin. Thanks to the current National Hockey League lock-

out, Phillips attended this year’s launch for the first time. “It is an honour to be here and I am proud to help make a difference for families out there in Ottawa,” Phillips said. The Snowsuit Fund campaign will continue throughout the next two months, with the annual Canadian Tire Snowsuit Fund Gala on Nov. 3 at the Ottawa Convention Centre and a telethon to be broadcast on 105.3 Kiss FM, Y101 FM and Chez 106 FM on Dec. 12.

Andrews said the depot aims to make sure every child in need is outfitted before the end of the year. Those interested in volunteering, Andrews said can contact her at 613-7465143. Everyone is welcome, including students looking to fill their volunteer requirements. Monetary or outerwear donations can be made online, at www.snowsuitfund. com, or at Canadian Tire, Brown’s Cleaners and the Snowsuit Fund Depot on Donald Street.

EMC news - Vanier Beautification will receive the Volunteer of the Year Award from Crime Prevention Ottawa, the group announced at it’s fifth anniversary celebrations on Oct. 16. “It is very exciting news,” said Marguerite Beaulieu, co-chairwoman of the committee. The group will receive its award on Nov. 5 at city hall during the Crime Prevention Ottawa’s annual awards gala. To celebrate the group’s accomplishments, a video will be made. “It will focus on how important participation from the residents is,” Beaulieu said. A collection of Vanier residents that pride themselves on being doers, not talkers, the group does everything from picking garbage to planting and tending to gardens across the neighbourhood. The award, Beaulieu said, is quite an accomplishment

In early 2011, City Council approved changes to the City’s waste collection contract resulting in savings of millions of dollars of taxpayer funds per year. The new contract will also help extend the life of our Trail Road landfill and will reduce the number of trucks on our streets.

After 34 years, I leave you with a fond farewell

M

any of you have followed my cooking column, Food and Stuff, since it first appeared in the Smiths Falls EMC in 1978. Now, it reaches 500,000 households covering the area from Ottawa to Prescott, from Norwood to Trenton, and almost every community in between. It’s come a long way in those 34 years. I love cooking and I love experimenting to find out how a new dish will taste. I wish I could explain how much I’ve enjoyed creating hundreds of new recipes and sharing them with you. My reward has come every time that someone comes up to me and tells me how much they enjoy my column. When they tell me that they make a lot of my recipes, I’m delighted because that has always been my goal – to give you recipes that you will make and enjoy in your own kitchen. No matter who I talk to, I hear the same comment about my recipes again and again. They are easy to prepare with ingredients that you have on hand. This year, my life suddenly took an unexpected turn when I was diagnosed with lung cancer. Needless to say, this came as a complete shock,

I have enjoyed writing about cooking for many years, and I know that I will miss it. I am giving you one last recipe, Jennie’s brownies. They are very easy to make and everyone loves them. Make them often and enjoy every delicious bite. JENNIE’S BROWNIES

• about 1 tsp. unsweetened cocoa powder to dust the baking pan • 1/2 cup butter • 1 cup white sugar • 2 eggs, well beaten with a fork • 1/2 cup flour • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (not hot chocolate mix) • 1 tsp. vanilla • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Dinner?

Butter the bottom and sides of a 20-centimetre square cake pan. Sprinkle one tsp. of cocoa powder over the buttered surfaces. Tap the pan to spread the powder evenly and discard any excess. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Add the remaining ingredients and stir well. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake at 350 F (175 C) for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of the pan comes out clean. Cool the pan on a wire rack. These are good with or without icing.

Childhood rival swings into action

M

Forbes magazine stated recently that Canada was the best place in the world to do business. As your Member of Parliament, I appreciate that a large part of that honour is due to the character of CanadaĘźs small business entrepreneurs: hard working, passionate, determined, and courageous. Small business is important in Nepean-Carleton. Canadian entrepreneurs work hard creating jobs and growth in communities like ours, locally and across the country. In order to create the best possible business environment for them, our Government remains focused on the economy by keeping taxes low, cutting unnecessary government red tape, promoting Canadian exports to new markets and supporting our entrepreneurs. CanadaĘźs small business tax rate has been reduced down to 11 per cent, and our corporate tax rate dropped to 15 per cent this year. Canada is now the most taxcompetitive country among developed G-7 countries according to a recent report by the School of Public Policy. Our government also understands that as we work toward a return to balanced budgets over the medium term, we will do so without raising taxes or cutting transfers to Canadians or the provinces. Across the country, there are 30,000 small business entrepreneurs who export their products and services to markets around the world. Our GovernmentĘźs ambitious trade plan is deepening relationships with high-growth markets. For example, toward the end of the year, we are looking forward to completing a trade agreement with the European Union which will reduce tariffs to a market comprised of 500 million consumers. Building on these successes, our Government launched the Red Tape Reduction Action Plan this fall to save entrepreneurs time and money. The plan is ambitious and includes common sense solutions to business irritants in areas ranging from tax and payroll to labour, transport and trade. This expands on our actions taken in Economic Action Plan 2012 to help employers hire new workers with the extension of the temporary Hiring BeneďŹ t for Small Businesses while also limiting Employment Insurance rate increases. Finally, we introduced the Pooled Registered Pension Plan, providing small business entrepreneurs with a way to provide pensions to their employees. These initiatives demonstrate our GovernmentĘźs commitment to create jobs, growth and long-term prosperity for entrepreneurs and all Canadians.

MARY COOK Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories bloomers,â&#x20AC;? Velma said. We looked over at Marguirite. There she was, bouncing around like a rubber ball in a brand new plaid coat with velvet collar, white stockings and her usual black patent leather Mary Jane shoes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I had a dollar, I would take you up on that Velma,â&#x20AC;? I said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone our age wears those navy bloomers.

With slitted eyes we watched Marguirite at the swinging gate. It was then Velma had a most brilliant idea. It would involve Cecil of course. Everything that had a bit of a risk to it, always involved Cecil. Velma told me to follow her. I was used to that order and walked with Velma over to the gate. The gate had to be kept hooked, because it was on a slant and slammed shut otherwise. Velma called Cecil aside. That in itself was unusual. Cecil had very little to do with we younger girls at the Northcote School. But I saw Velma take something out of her lunch bag and hand it over to Cecil and I saw him nodding and looking over at Marguirite. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who wants to swing on the gate?â&#x20AC;? Cecil hollered. We all loved to swing on

the gate, and Marguirite was no exception. The young girls from Junior Third all yelled at once, but since the gate would only hold one at a time, Cecil pointed to Marguirite and said she could go first. Velma beckoned me over and we stood close to the action. Cecil said you could get

It was a long walk to the Northcote School and we never knew when the weather was going to change and catch us without warm clothes.

down on the other side of the gate. I was surprised she went for it. Marguirite never took orders from anyone. Cecil stood on the side of the gate where her head was, and he ran the gate closed and then gave it a mighty heave and running, swung it wide open. Marguirite squealed with glee and Cecil gave her another ride for good measure. Then when the ride was over he accidentally pushed her off to the ground and she went spread eagle, head over tea kettle. I have no idea how he did it, but Cecil was able to have her land with her new plaid coat and everything under it around her shoulders. There for the entire Northcote School to see was her store-bought underwear from Walker Store, as white as the driven snow. No navy blue fleece lined bloomers for Marguirite. Velma just smiled in my direction, nodded to Cecil and we all lined up to go into school as Miss Crosby stood on the step ringing the big brass bell. I asked Velma how she was able to get Cecil into the act. She said it cost her two molasses cookies. That night at home, without giving Mother the details (I knew she would never approve of such shenanigans), I told her that Marguirite didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to wear navy blue fleece lined bloomers and I could see no reason why I had to. Mother said she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care if even Princess Margaret Rose didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wear them or didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even own a pair, I would be wearing the navy blue fleece lined bloomers and there would be no further discussion.

y little friend Velma and I met at the back fence behind the Northcote School. Her feelings about Marguirite were just about the same as mine. How much do you want to bet she is still in her white store-bought underwear that her mother buys in Walkers Store? Our eyes travelled over towards the gate where Marguirite was trying to work herself into a group of Senior Fourth girls who obviously wanted no part of her either. The less any of us had to do with the girl, the better we liked it. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that she was so bad, even though we all called her â&#x20AC;&#x153;bad Marguirite.â&#x20AC;? It was just that she was so privileged. Being an only child gave her a decided advantage and also gave her a sense of self importance that none of us could tolerate. I was very aware of the heavy navy blue fleece lined bloomers I had been forced into a week ago. The weather now had a nip in the air and even a few snowflakes had fallen. There was no doubt fall was upon us and winter wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t far behind. It was a long walk to the Northcote School and we never knew when the weather was going to change and catch us without warm clothes. So Mother had long since ordered my sister Audrey into heavier white warm underpants and me into the navy blue fleece lined bloomers we got from the Eatonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s catalogue. I hated them with a passion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bet a dollar she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even own a pair of those

Stephen Blais. But now there is money available, so they city is set to approve $135,000 for the centre to put towards its loans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will allow us to pay (the loan) much faster and get back to investing in new programs,â&#x20AC;? said centre executive director Luc Ouellette. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really appreciate it.â&#x20AC;?

EMC news - The city is jumping on board to help the OrlĂŠans-Cumberland Community Resource Centre with renovations it made to its new Centrum Boulevard facility. The resource centre and its 12 partners moved into the former Farm Boy location at 240 Centrum Blvd. in 2010 after spending $2 mil-

lion to convert the building. In addition to fundraising, the resource centre received contributions from the Trillium Foundation, the federal and provincial governments and agencies associated with the centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s partners â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but nothing from the city. There was no money available for capital improvements for community facilities due to city budget constraints in 2010, said Cumberland Coun.

High school runners compete in city championships Dan Plouffe

EMC news - A doubledouble is usually reserved for coffee drinkers or basketball players, but Kanata’s Day family achieved their own unique cross-country running double-double at the high school city championships on Wednesday, Oct. 17 at Terry Fox Athletic Facility. Grade 9 Holy Trinity Catholic High School athlete Owen Day kicked off the day with a commanding victory by over a minute in the midget boys race, and older brother Mickey closed it with a solid senior boys triumph several hours later. It was the second time Mickey was part of a double Day dominance – he won the midget boys crown back in Grade 9 when his older brother Kieran took the senior prize. “We completed what we wanted to do,” said Mickey, who was proud to celebrate the fulfillment of what’s become a family tradition of excellence. “It was a good moment.” Earlier, he’d greeted Owen with a hug after his younger sibling made his high school debut by opening up an early lead and continuing to add to it, crossing the finish line of the five-kilometre event in 17 minutes, 39 seconds. “With all my friends and my family, it was just a great feeling to come down and see everyone there waiting for me,” Owen recalls. “My brothers and my dad have all done it, so I really wanted to do it. It’s very exciting.” The four Day males sometimes run together in the woods near their house, although Mickey and Kieran are the more frequent running pair since their gap in age isn’t as significant as ability level. “We probably should start bringing (Owen) along now,” says Mickey, who won his 7K race in 21:41. “He trains a lot harder than my older brother or I had at that age. I’m expecting good things from him this year. He’s got two older brothers, so he’s got to try to go after us with everything he’s got.” Mickey ran alongside A.Y. Jackson Secondary School athletes Brendon Howard and

DAN PLOUFFE

A mass of runners approaches a hill during the national capital high school cross-country running championships on Wednesday, Oct. 17 at Mooney’s Bay.

The top athletes advance to the provincials. Alec Jarvis for most of the race until making his break after a hill and cruising in for a 57-second victory. He missed having last year’s national capital silver medalist Alex Berhe to push him in the race, however. The pair are always sideby-side in races, but Berhe wasn’t able to compete since his Woodroffe school did not enter a team due to the teachers’ labour dispute with the province. “He’s really fast and a great guy. He’s very fun to run with,” Mickey said. “Him and his coach came to visit and watch the race, so that was nice.” Howard and Jarvis were also affected by the labour conflict. They’d moved into training programs for crosscountry skiing and triathlon

respectively for a two-week period before their fall season was resurrected when parents stepped up to coach the team. Around a dozen Ottawa public school board teams were missing from this year’s event, including one of the usual powerhouses, Colonel By. Regardless of who lined up, the Glebe Collegiate Institute junior girls team of Katherine Marshall, Alexa Livingstone, Claire Smith, Zoe Pritchard and Emma Barrett were prepared to take anyone on. They earned a remarkable four of the first five positions, and five of the top seven, en route to a near-perfect team score of 11 placement points. As midgets last year, the Glebe girls earned antiquebronze for fourth place at the

OFSAA provincial championships, and are poised to make a run for the top spot on the podium this year. The team is boosted by newcomers Marshall – a midget-aged athlete who was the surprise winner of the junior race – and Pritchard, a transfer student from Iowa. “I can’t remember the last time a team from Ottawa has won OFSAA,” said Glebe coach Kirk Dillabaugh. On top of the benefits from training with their top compet-

itors, the Glebe team members enjoy having each other there during races. They ran as a bright yellow pack in the city final, along with one streak of blue from St. Joseph’s Meagan Adams. “It makes the races a lot less scary when you’re running it with people that you know,” said Smith, who’s hoping previous OFSAA experience under their belts will pay dividends. “Last year we didn’t know what to expect. It was really

intimidating. So hopefully this year we’ll be more prepared.” The other individual race winners were Brookfield’s Olivia Robertson (senior girls), Glebe’s Alex Bernst (junior boys) and Earl of March’s Sophie Rodenburg (midget girls). Glebe came within one race of sweeping every team competition, missing only the senior boys’ crown, where Nepean edged them in a tiebreaker as both schools finished with 69 points.

City bylaw stops play on baseball diamonds after Oct. 15 Eddie Rwema Eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC sports – Dreams of a 12-year-old Riverside South boy to play in the finals of a fall baseball season were shattered when the games were cancelled because of bad weather. Dom Petrocco’s team had qualified for the 2012 Sam Bat Fall League playoffs that were supposed to take place on Oct. 13 and 14. “It was so disappointing. This was no way to end the

season,” said Dom’s mother, Angie Petrocco. By then Angie and her son were hopeful that the games would be postponed to a later date, but were disappointed to hear that the city’s bylaw do not permit any play on diamonds after Oct. 15. “It is just sad it had to end like this and I hope it doesn’t stop him (Dom) from wanting to play again next year,” said Angie. In a letter to players and parents, Andrew Beattie, president, Ottawa Royals Baseball Club, said he did not fault specific city staff for the closing of the ball diamonds. He said he fully empathizes with any player who may be frustrated. “As a player the one thing you love to do is play. Anytime that you are deprived the opportunity to play you are frustrated,” he said.

“I am proud that over 130 players had the opportunity to play out the majority of the games and extend the season this year.” According to Beattie, the enforcement was merely the execution of a rule that was put in place to protect and prepare fields. “On the matter of being unable to extend the bookings beyond Oct.15, I did request for an exemption to play on the weekend of (Oct.) 20 to 21. I should point out that the city did grant our request for an exemption to play this weekend. However, this did not provide for enough time to co-ordinate player, umpire and volunteer participation,” said Beattie. “As I mentioned in my letter to the players and parents, I don’t fault the city staff for this. If anything, they have been outstanding to deal with.

They were merely following a bylaw rule that closes all fields on Oct.15 for the season.” In the future, Beattie hopes to address the issue of extending the use of the diamonds for baseball in not only the fall but the spring as well. “It is my hope that working with members of city council and city staff that we can find resolution to extend the playing time in the region. In doing so, it would also add additional revenues for the city through field rentals,” he said. Beattie stressed that players need to be able to practice on a diamond to improve their skills. “Currently we spend a lot of money in other municipalities to play on their facilities because of this blanket field bylaw treating diamonds like other fields in Ottawa,” he said.

General Care Rabbits make good pets for a family, but children should not be expected to look after a rabbit without parental help. Small children need to be supervised. Rabbits should be lifted with their weight fully supported, never by the scruff of the neck or ears. They can be easily injured through improper handling. Brush your rabbitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coat daily and trim his nails every few weeks. Your rabbit can be taught to share your home though hazards such as electrical cords and toxic plants should be removed or made inaccessible to prevent accidents. Rabbits will chew and dig, so provide acceptable items for these purposes such as untreated wooden toys and a safe digging BOXlLLEDWITHSTRAW%NCOURAGEYOURRABBITTOUSETHESE items to minimize damage to your furnishings. Kind training, using lots of praise and treats, will teach your rabbit his place as a member of the family.

A Quick Guide to Rabbits Rabbits are intelligent, social animals. When given plenty of attention, they make affectionate and rewarding family pets. They can be trained to use a litter box and are more enjoyable, responsive pets when living indoors as house rabbits. Given appropriate care, a rabbit can live up to 10 years.

GET YOUR FLU SHOT AND MORE WITH EXPANDED CARE AT PARTICIPATING PHARMACIES

Oct. 26-28 Overeaters Anonymous invites you to attend the Region 6 2012 Convention in Ottawa. Workshops will be provided to help those with compulsive eating behaviours. For more information visit www. oaregion6.org/2012 Join us on Oct. 26 at Emmanuel United Church, 691 Smyth Rd., for a dinner from 6.30 p.m followed by Part two of “Who Shot Sweet Sue’s Spouse” - a live old-time radio show. For more information call 613-733-0437 or visit www.emmanuelunited.ca.

Our government is expanding ways in which pharmacists can help Ontarians stay healthy. At a time when we’re making the most of our health care dollars, we need to make the most of our pharmacists’ knowledge, skills, commitment and care.

Oct. 27 Welcome to the fall bazaar at the Anglican Church of the Resurrection on 3191 Riverside Dr., 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The bazaar will feature bake table, puddings and shortbreads, books in portable, Lunchroom, Jeweler, Silent Auction, rummage items, honey vendor and many more. For more information email churchresurrection@rogers. com or call 613-733-8185

That’s why we’re making important changes to help busy families get the care they need. Now, pharmacists will be able to renew prescriptions for non-narcotic medications. This will make it easier for a mom out shopping to get a flu shot at a pharmacy in the same plaza instead of another trip to the clinic. Pharmacists can now help a dad quit smoking by prescribing medications that only doctors could prescribe in the past –and show a newly diagnosed patient how to take their blood sugar so they can manage their diabetes. Expanding services pharmacists deliver is another way we’re giving Ontarians greater access to health care they need closer to home.
