Dunlop Public parents raise $35,000 for two new play structures Eddie Rwema eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC news – Dunlop Public School parents celebrated the construction of two new play structures last week. It took them seven years, but the school’s parent council managed to collect $35,000 for the project, money raised by pizza, chocolate, bake and book sales as well as donations. Dunlop Public staff and parents held a ceremony on Nov. 13, unveilling the play structures, which will be used by kindergarten and primary students. “I am not just happy, I am ecstatic,” said Michele Tatartcheff, acting principal of the South Keys school. “This is working so well, the kids love it and they are very happy.” Tatartcheff said the school’s original primary play structure was 30 years old and was no longer safe. “Now our children are playing safely, and are playing well. (The play structures) answer a lot of needs for our school,” she said. The original plan was to build only one play structure for primary grade students, but with the introduction of full-day kindergarten last year, the parent council saw a need to build a separate one for the younger children. “The kindergarten play structure was a treat and a bonus for us,” said Tatartcheff. Andrea Laliberté, chair of the Dunlop Public School parent council, said she was thrilled the project was finally complete. See DUNLOP, page 3

City looks to set green-bin rules for multi-residential buildings Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - New guidelines meant to standardize garbage and recycling bin requirements for multi-residential buildings left councillors with a slew of questions at a recent planning committee meeting. The design guidelines are aimed at preventing problems before they happen, said Melanie Knight, a planning staffer who worked on the guidelines. The document says property owners are responsible for constructing “proper and safe

waste handling systems” for their buildings, and that the facilities must include room for garbage bins as well as recycling for blue-, black- and green-bin materials. Currently, there are no guidelines and the city doesn’t offer organics recycling for all multi-residential buildings. While a handful of apartments are part of a pilot project for green bin collection, many buildings don’t have the capacity to include another type of recycling bin. The guidelines aim to fix that. “Residents must have convenient access to facilitate

their participation in the recycling and organics programs,” the document states. But councillors on the city’s planning committee were concerned that putting guidelines in place might make it difficult for seniors to take out their trash. Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais started off the debate on Nov. 13 by saying the guidelines seemed to have been “looked at in isolation,” without considering the city’s other plans, such as the Older Adult Plan. He and other councillors, including Bay Coun. Mark

Taylor, were worried that a rule that waste bins must be no more than 100 metres from the dwelling might make it difficult for people with mobility challenges to get their garbage and recycling out. “It’s 100 metres there and 100 metres back,” Blais said. “For me, that’s OK, but for someone who has mobility issues or someone who is perhaps approaching retirement or (is a) senior, a 200-metre walk to bring the garbage to the garbage can, that can put a strain on your lifestyle.” See TRASH, page 2

A consultant who worked on the guidelines pointed out that there is currently no maximum distance for how far away from the building the owner can place waste receptacles. “We’re trying to fill a void,” Rory Baksh said. But Blais and Taylor said the distance is just one example of how a resident could be affected by the guidelines. The councillors worried that the list was aimed at pleasing city planners, developers and garbage collectors, but was not as concerned with whether it would serve residents’ needs. “It’s great to say it’s going to be more efficient or more attractive to look at and all these things these guidelines talk about, but how is it going to impact Joe and Jane Ottawa resident who is going to use

it?” Blais asked. Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder said she was also concerned the guidelines are “too grandiose” and she wondered who would monitor the requirements to ensure they weren’t making it difficult to maintain hygiene. “Are we really forgetting about the bigger picture?” she asked. Still, staff that worked on the project said without the guidelines there will be a bigger problem in the future. Councillors were satisfied with that and the planning committee approved the new guidelines with no changes. If approved by full council, the guidelines would be used at the site-plan stage to guide developers and city staff on how to achieve the solid waste requirements for new multiresidential buildings such as apartments and townhomes.

Congratulations to Dunlop Public School! Congratulations to Dunlop Public School on the Grand Opening of their two brand new play structures. The Dunlop Parent Council, with the assistance of the OttawaCarleton District School Board and the City of Ottawa’s Minor Capital Partnership Program, were successful in raising enough funds over the past seven years to make this project come to fruition. The play structures, one for kindergarten students and the other for use by primary grade students, were in much need of an upgrade and will be enjoyed by the students for many years to come. EDDIE RWEMA/METROLAND

“We are so happy to have these play structures. It took a lot of time and money to make this happen,” she said minutes after cutting a ribbon to officially open the structures. “It is such an incredible feeling of happiness and joy

that our children can enjoy the play structures after all this hard work,” said Laliberté. “There is a really sense of accomplishment for a very small school of 175 families to have raised more than $35,000 for the two play structures.” Lariberté said the experience has taught her that a

small community can pull together extremely well to make big things happen. “For a community this small to have pulled together so well and to see this coming to fruition is just a dream come true,” she said. “We recognized the need to replace an aging play structure and came

together to start the process.” She said the structures will also serve the surrounding community. “We are very proud to have this for our own students, but we know there is going to be a spillage of that to a lot of children from the community,” said Lariberté.

City Celebrates 50 years of Wastewater Treatment On November 15, 2012, I was pleased to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Robert O. Pickard Environmental Centre (ROPEC,) which was officially opened on November 15, 1962. ROPEC is Ottawa’s first wastewater treatment facility. Today, as it was 50 years ago, ROPEC is a critical piece of infrastructure for our City. This plant treats all of Ottawa’s domestic and commercial wastewater and has allowed the City to become a leader in wastewater treatment. With new technologies, including real time controls, the City can further protect our waterways by managing the volume of sewage and stormwater captured and redirected to ROPEC for treatment. The City also re-uses by-products of the treatment process, including the conversion of digester gases into heat and electricity to run the plant.

The new Vanier Community Association’s website, vanier-association.com, will be launched by the new year. has been built with long-term, multi-member capabilities. Each committee in the association, such as the health and safety committee, will have its own page where minutes from meetings, discussions and ideas can be posted. The events page, a Gmail calendar, can be continually updated by committee members to post upcoming events and meetings. “The goal is to eventually be the go-to site for Vanier,� Paquette said. He added the website can be used as a tool to organize the association’s documents and to showcase its accomplishments. Once launched, residents will be able to check out the latest news, see what neighbours and board members are talking about because of a direct link to the association’s Facebook and Twitter pages and mark down all the events taking place on the calendar.

As part of the celebration, I was honored to open a time capsule, which was buried on the site on November 15, 1962. The time capsule was full of interesting historical items. Another time capsule will be sealed and buried, which will be opened during ROPEC’s 100th anniversary in 2062. You can visit my website at MariaMcRae.ca for a list of what I discovered in the time capsule. In addition, the contents will be on display at several City facilities in 2013. I encourage you to take a look at some interesting pieces from our history.

Carlington Heights Pump Station Upgrade The City of Ottawa will soon initiate the Environmental Assessment (EA) and Functional Design Study for an upgrade to the Carlington Heights Pump Station. These upgrades are needed to improve the reliability of the water supply to one-third of Ottawa’s central distribution system and to provide additional capacity for future urban growth. The study will include the identification and evaluation of alternatives for the new infrastructure, the selection of a preferred alternative and the functional design of this alternative. You will have an opportunity to provide comments throughout the EA process. I will provide further information on the timeline for this study as it becomes available.

Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s power supply over the past several years has been among the most reliable in Ontario, according to Ontario Energy Board statistics. Power outages can and do occur, however, for a variety of reasons. Storms, tree contacts, a loss of supply from the provincial grid, and equipment failure can all cause outages. Most of these causes are beyond our control at Hydro Ottawa. In 2011, for example, three major storms hit Ottawa in the spring and summer, causing widespread outages. We worked long hours in challenging conditions to get the power back on as soon as possible. To improve reliability, we invested about $50 million to enhance our existing power grid in 2011. Our plan is to maintain or exceed this level of spending over the next ďŹ ve years. We have a rigorous maintenance program, we replace aging assets, and we are adopting new, smart grid technologies including automated controls and sensors that can help to prevent or quickly identify outages. Our year-round tree trimming program is another element of outage prevention, helping to keep trees from making contact with electricity wires. We trim more than 40,000 trees a year to reduce outages and keep the public safe. When unplanned outages do occur, please call the Power Outage Line â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 613-738-0188 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to report the outage and to get updated information. You can also pass along information if you are aware of something (like a downed wire) that would help our power restoration activities. Also available is an Online Power Outage Map at www.hydroottawa.com/outages. Updated every 15 minutes, the map displays the location of outages, the estimated number of customers affected, the cause of the outage, and the estimated time of restoration, once known. We all depend on a reliable supply of power at home and work. At Hydro Ottawa, we are focused on preventing power outages and restoring power as quickly as possible when outages occur.

Riverside South recreation centre a few years away Eddie Rwema eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC news - It may still be a few years before Riverside South can get a recreation complex, says GloucesterSouth Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches. But residents will be able to benefit from a new recreation complex in Barrhaven once the Strandherd-Armstrong bridge is finished. Desroches told the Riverside South Community Association annual general meeting that the Barrhaven facility that is planned to open in the fall of 2014, will serve much of Ottawa South. “We are still a small community,” he said during the Nov. 15 meeting. “The

recreation centre we are proposing needs to serve a catchment of some 50,000 people. “We know we need it but we are still a few years away from getting it.” The Barrhaven complex will include 40,000 square metres of space and is designed to complement facilities and services at the 30-year-old Walter Baker Sports Centre. Under the proposed plan, the Riverside South complex will be located in a new district park located on Spratt Road, east of St. Francis Xavier Catholic Secondary School. Desroches told the meeting that the StrandherdArmstrong bridge remains

on track to open in August 2013. Work on the bridge started up again this summer after the city hired a new contractor to replace ConCreate USL, which went into receivership last spring. “Work is moving well on the bridge,” said Desroches. The bridge, which is to span the Rideau River connecting Strandherd Drive in Barrhaven to Earl Armstrong Road in Riverside South, was originally slated to be completed in the spring of this year. In 2010, the city and both provincial and federal levels of government set aside a total of $48 million, shared equally between all three, for the construction of the bridge.

Steve Desroches Deputy Mayor Councillor, Gloucester-South Nepean STRANDHERD-ARMSTRONG BRIDGE UPDATE I am pleased to report that work continues to progress on the StrandherdArmstrong Bridge site. All of the arch segments required for launching have been delivered to the construction site. Work on the erection and welding of the bridge arches continues. The north-arch has been erected, including welding, in its entirety on the temporary tower. The north deck (bridge ďŹ&#x201A;oor) has also been erected in its entirety on the temporary launching system. Work that residents can expect to see over the coming weeks includes the continued erection and welding of the centre-arch segment, welding of the south arch, and deck and arch painting. The installation of the stay-cables, which connect the bridge ďŹ&#x201A;oor to the arches, is expected to commence in early winter.

As you know, this project is a priority for me and I am working closely with city ofďŹ cials to ensure the project continues to move forward and is completed as quickly as possible and to the highest quality and safety standards. If you are interested in the construction of the new bridge, you can see live pictures of the bridge construction through a link on my website at www.stevedesroches.ca.

CITY CAN CONNECT HOMELESS VETERANS TO PROGRAMS AND SERVICES

Ottawa firefighters, councillors, businesses and organizations come out on Nov. 17 to help Santa Claus at the 43rd annual Help Santa Toy Parade. The Ottawa Fire Fighters Association and the Salvation Army hosts the parade in an effort to collect toy donations to give to underprivileged children this Christmas.

I recently introduced a notice of motion to City Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Community and Protective Services Committee. The motion calls for city staff to develop a strategy with the Royal Canadian Legion and Veterans Affairs Canada to enhance information sharing, referrals, and connection to social and employment services in the Ottawa area that are available and often underutilized by veterans.

Fisher

In my years as a councillor, I have met veterans who are unaware that they may be eligible for programs such as pensions, allowances, and home visits. As well, the city has the means to help to connect homeless veterans to support and beneďŹ ts from the federal government and Royal Canadian Legion.

School Trustee Zone 7

I think it is important to honour and remember the efforts and sacriďŹ ces of our veterans year round, and believe that introducing them to the programs and services already available to them is the ďŹ rst step to showing our continued appreciation.

RIVERSIDE SOUTH STORMWATER POND UPDATE I have been advised by City OfďŹ cials that the stormwater pond in the vicinity of Dusty Miller Crescent will be drained in order to install a new seal on the pond bottom drain gate. It is intended that the facility will then be left empty for the winter and reďŹ lled in Spring 2013. The Ministry of the Environment are aware of these activities, and it is anticipated that this will assist in dealing with the odor issues previously experienced at this facility.

Taking green bin recycling to new heights

T

he city should be applauded for moving ahead with a plan to deliver the full spectrum of recycling possibilities to apartment dwellers. A plan approved by a city committee last week would see all types of recycling services â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including green bins â&#x20AC;&#x201C; available to people living in new multi-residential buildings. Garbage isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a sexy topic, but it is an expensive one.

If residents of this city donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t divert trash from the Trail Road landfill into coloured recycling bins, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll fill up the dump and be forced to send our waste further afield. The cost will be enormous â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just as the cost of building a new landfill would be enormous â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best to delay that outcome, and recycling is the solution the city is backing. In 2010, 53,349 tonnes of organic waste were collected from Ottawa homes; in

2011, that number rose only slightly to 55,063. A few people who live in apartments have been part of a pilot project to see how green bins might work for all multi-residential buildings. There are challenges presented by multi-unit residences, because places such as apartment complexes rarely have space to store green bins. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan under review would require landlords to construct waste handling

systems for future buildings. The cost of adding recycling space during the construction of a new building is minimal when compared to retrofitting. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a small price to pay and the sooner new buildings come with recycling space, the more waste can be diverted from the landfill. Given that the city is encouraging intensified development, we can expect to see more people in apartments in the future. Making sure all

those apartment dwellers can sort and store recyclables is critical. There will be challenges, and some were discussed at a recent meeting of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planning committee. If bins are not located near apartment entrances, people with mobility issues will have a hard time participating. Councillors are understandably worried about putting in place a policy that may leave residents on the outside looking in.

Hopefully this will be the first step towards adapting the green bin program to work at existing multiunit residential properties, which would allow organic waste diversion to become even more widespread. It is entirely conceivable that solutions implemented at new buildings could be retrofitted to work at existing structures. But until that time the city is taking the appropriate steps to ensure that even if some people canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t or wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do their part and recycle, Ottawa is moving in the right direction on the waste management file.

Awaiting the pre-population explosion CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

I

went to fill out one of those online forms the other day and when I got to about the second page of it, I found out that it had been pre-populated. Yes. There was a note there saying that as a convenience to me, parts of the form had been pre-populated. The room, all of a sudden, felt crowded. But what it meant was that parts of the form had already been filled in with information that the website already knew about me. That wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t very much, as it turned out, just my name and not even my phone number. You can imagine, however, how alarming it would be to be subject to more extensive pre-population. This, in a way, is what all the concern about online privacy is about. People put stuff about themselves up there and it hangs around and hangs around. There are probably a lot more people than you think who know where you live, your telephone number and email address. And there are others who know things about your buying habits. If you are worried about your personal pre-population exceeding that, you have to be careful. For example, I would never tell put it online that the other day I decided to use Baseline and Heron as a quicker way to get from west to east. Nobody does that, right? Well, the Queensway looked really slow, so I made one of those instant decisions that took me right to the Idiot Drivers Hall of Fame. Mind you, it took quite a while to get there. There were all the stoplights, and then the 25 minutes it took to get from Heron Road Bridge to Riverside.

The first 20 minutes on Heron Road were spent wondering why nobody was moving, especially me. The next three minutes were spent wondering why nobody bothered to put up a CONSTRUCTION sign until we were almost at the construction and the two minutes after that were spent wondering why somebody couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have let us all know 25 minutes ago the left lane was the one that was going to end. All the information available in the world, all the ultra-modern means of transmitting it and we sit there on Heron Road, motionless and clueless. Surely this information could have been pre-populated somewhere. The radio didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have anything and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s against the law to fiddle with your phone to find out. A caveman sitting where Heron Road is now would have had just as much information as we did. All of which leads to a profound conclusion: We have all kinds of information available to us, more than ever before. Your phone probably has more information in it than all the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s libraries in 1912, for all I know. So yes, we have all kinds of information available to us. We just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the right kind. Some day soon all this will be fixed. We will have the equivalent of smartphones implanted in us, perhaps. They will tell us which lane to be in, which roads to avoid, when the snowplow is coming, which parking lots are not full, which stores still have the toy we wanted to buy for Christmas. We will be pre-populated like crazy. But will this make us happy? Probably not. We will be distracted by too much information, confused over having too many choices. You can see it happening now and it can only get worse. It is possible that we will long for the good old days when there was only one thing at a time we needed to now and we knew how to find it. Strange as it may seem, we may one day look nostalgically back on being stuck in traffic, on Heron Road, blissful in our ignorance on the way to the Idiot Drivers Hall of Fame.

Could outsourcing dinner save us money?

M

y husband is probably the first man in the history of paternity leave to take his role seriously. OK, maybe not. But he’s doing an awesome job. While I hide out in my office all day (you know, breadwinning), he’s rocking baby and feeding baby and taking baby for walks. Then he’s supervising homework and cooking dinner and making lunches and cooking dinner. Oh, and did I mention cooking dinner? It may come as no surprise that – like so many women before him – he has become completely overwhelmed with his domestic duties. One day, as I approached him – up to his eyeballs in clean laundry, baby gurgling on the living-room floor – he said, “I think we need to outsource something.” Interesting. “What do you have in

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse mind?” I asked him, knowing he’s got an arm’s-length list of home renovations projects he’d like to be doing in lieu of baby care. “The food, the meals,” he said. “I feel like I’m always in the kitchen.” It’s true. I know it. I’ve been meal-planning and lunch-making for my family for seven years. It’s a huge pain in the you-know-what – everything from coming up with original ideas, to chopping, to timing and shopping. As my pal, Kay, quipped the other day, “not another

eff-ing dinner.” We live in an age where we can outsource everything, from personal shopping to housecleaning. For a family on a budget, it may be hard to think about adding an expense. But in a way, outsourcing dinner makes total sense and it may save you more than just time – it could save you money, too. Canadians waste approximately $27 billion of food each year, according to a report released in October from the Value Chain Management Centre, an Ontario-based

organization that conducts research on waste. In 2010, uneaten leftovers at home accounted for more than half of that amount – 51 per cent. Surprisingly, only eight per cent of food waste was attributed to restaurants. One possible explanation is that restaurants have systems for ordering and preparing food. In other words, they cook what they buy and people tend to eat what is cooked. Food at home is another story. Most people go into the grocery store with good intentions: They load their carts up with fresh produce, then bask in the glory of fridges full of greens. But a busy week at work, a sick child, one too many extracurricular activity and the good intentions to cook go out the window. Suddenly, Friday pizza night is starting to occur three nights a week and all that food ends up

in the green bin. Eleven years ago, Julie Broczkowski, a chemical engineer by profession, launched her business, The Magic Fridge. Like most personal chefs, the crux of her business model is to cater to households. What makes her stand out, however, is that she doesn’t just make a bunch of stuff and bring it to you. For $200, plus the cost of groceries, Broczkowski will help you plan a menu, do your grocery shopping and cook approximately eight meals in your own kitchen. “When I first started out I thought seniors would be my target market,” says Broczkowski. “But the vast majority of my clients are families where both parents work, the kids have activities, and they’ve become sick of landing at McDonald’s three nights a week.”

Broczkowski says people may be intimidated by the cost at first glance, but they quickly realize that having the grocery list tailored to the meals, which are prepared and frozen the day the groceries are purchased can actually save them money in the long run. “A lot of my clients have been paying for their food twice,” says Broczkowski. “They go grocery shopping, put everything in the fridge, then wind up eating out. So I say, instead of paying for takeout, pay me. For $200, they can have two weeks’ worth of Monday-to-Thursday meals and no waste.” And to my friend, Kay, who posted this on Facebook at midnight last month: “If you need me, I’m probably lost in the back of the Tupperware cupboard #makingkidslunches,” it turns out, you can outsource that, too.

Canadians may not be able to help someone suffering from cardiac arrest: poll EMC news - According to recent polling by the Canadian Red Cross, the majority of Canadians say they would recognize the signs if someone were experiencing a cardiac emergency, but fewer than half say they would be able to do something to help. November is CPR month, an

annual campaign to promote the importance of CPR as a lifesaving skill. The Canadian Red Cross urges Canadians to take a course, and know what to do in an emergency. “In half a day you can learn the skills necessary to save a life,” says Don Marentette,

national manager of first aid programs with the Canadian Red Cross. “Only 15 per cent of Canadians say they are confident they can help someone suffering from a cardiac emergency, and that’s just not enough.” Approximately one in 10

deaths in Canada directly results from a heart attack. In large urban centres, the average ambulance response time is more than eight minutes, but permanent brain damage is likely to occur within four to six minutes after a person stops breathing.

“Knowing what to do in those critical minutes can save a life,” adds Marentette. “CPR, when used with an automated external defibrillator, and started immediately after cardiac arrest, can double a person’s chance of surviving a heart attack.” A Red Cross CPR course

teaches important life-saving skills, including how to recognize signs of breathing and circulation emergencies, how to call for help, perform CPR, and how to use an AED. The Red Cross is the only national training agency to include AED training as a mandatory component.

EMC news - Test your home for radon during Lung Cancer Awareness Month Radon gas identified as second leading cause of lung cancer, after smoking EMC news - Recent research by Health Canada estimates that 16 per cent of lung cancer deaths among Canadians are attributable to indoor radon exposure, making radon gas the second leading cause of lung cancer after tobacco smoking. The good news is that it is easy to reduce the risk. Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas in the ground that can’t be seen, smelled or tasted. It can get into the home undetected through cracks in the foundation or gaps around pipes. The only way to measure the radon level in the home is to take a simple and inexpensive test, which can be purchased at most hardware stores. Health Canada recom-

mends testing for a minimum of three months starting in the fall, when windows and doors typically remain closed. As part of the long-term testing process, homeowners can hire a certified professional to test their home or purchase a do-it-yourself test kit. At the end of the testing period, the detector is sent to a laboratory and a report will be sent indicating the level of radon in the home. If radon levels are found to exceed the Canadian guideline of 200 becquerels per cubic metre, then it can be reduced at a reasonable price. The most recent national survey of homes found 6.2 per cent of the homes randomly tested by the City of Ottawa’s health department exceeded the 200 becquerels standard. Homeowners can visit Health Canada’s website at www.hc-sc.gc.ca for information on the steps they can take to reduce radon levels in their home. R0011758649

To the editor: Marie-Curie French public school has a fenced-in parking lot for a playground. The asphalt is broken and the children play over top of disabled parking signs rather than hopscotches. But this school is something special. Located in the heart of Ottawa, within it beats the heart of the country. The 370 students there are largely the children of immigrants, who come from 60 different countries and dozens of languages can be heard from them as they laugh and play together. They are the Canadian dream: different cultures coming together in peace to learn and make the world a better place. Right now, though, they need your help to build a real place to play at recess, and it won’t cost you a cent. The Aviva Community Fund is entering round three of this year’s campaign. The only way to qualify for the final round is to inspire fellow citizens to vote for their cause online, and supporters have been doing so daily. In round two, Marie Curie came in 25th of 536 large-scale proposals, which means they have a chance to qualify. Students and parents need to increase awareness of their

cause, and inspire the motivation required to click through to their voting page on Aviva’s website to make it to the semifinals. “Recess is boring. There’s nothing to do and we keep falling on the pavement,” said one little boy who is hoping his mother’s efforts will result in a better place to play, “I scraped my whole leg in the fall.” The parents of children with special needs have particular concerns as there isn’t any “quiet area” for them to play and rest. This is especially a concern for kids with autism, (autism spectrum disorder) and mental development delays. Half a minute of your time each day for the next two weeks will give the kids a better place to play and a gift from all of Canada, their new home. It is in this school that they will learn about what being Canadian really is and what it is not.

Grant helps schools in need learn at museum Funds made available to allow access for high needs schools Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - More children than ever before are getting the chance to get their hands dirty at the Canadian Museum of Nature thanks to a new program. TD Friends of the Environment has awarded a $100,000 grant for the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nature Express program, which will cover the admission and transportation costs for schools identiďŹ ed as ďŹ nancially disadvantaged or high-need. The Nature Express is a science workshop linked to school boardsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; curriculum that allows children to see live specimens and handle equipment under the supervision of scientists. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This workshop offers the children amazing learning opportunities,â&#x20AC;? said Maggie Kilian, head of the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s education program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would not have been possible otherwise.â&#x20AC;? Kilian said she had proposed the outreach program to disadvantaged schools based on a similar program she ran at a botanical garden in Van-

couver. The museum estimates close to 1,200 students from seven school boards in the National Capital Region will beneďŹ t from the free visits. The program is for kindergarten to Grade 7 students and offers a value of $8 per student, plus the cost of bus transportation, which ranges from $200 to $500 a trip depending on where the participating school is located. Gilles Proulx, project leader for the program, said the museum has always wanted to offer programming like this for free, but to absorb the cost of transportation was too much for the museum to bear. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The biggest barrier has always been the busing,â&#x20AC;? he said. The educator added that thanks to the grant, the children will get the chance to really experience the museum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They get to visit all the galleries. I hope it will ignite the passions of different things that may like and increase their interest of science or environmental science or art.â&#x20AC;? Teachers expressed their appreciation for the program,

Shortly after attending a workshop with his students, teacher Mario Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;eer wrote a letter expressing gratitude to the museum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This experience contributes greatly to the development of academic skills, not only in science, but also in oral communication,â&#x20AC;? Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;eer said.

Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;eerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s students, he added, gave presentations of the visit and what they learned. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I ďŹ nd that this type of experience was of a great value and importance,â&#x20AC;? Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;eer said. Kilian said her staff is also having a great time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They love working with the kids and have told me it is getting the chance to create

that spark of interest that is the most rewarding,â&#x20AC;? she said. The museum received 24 requests for the ďŹ rst round of free programming, and 12 teachers were accepted. Approximately 560 students (24 classes) have beneďŹ ted from this program so far. The next deadline for teachers to request funding for the program is Feb. 1, 2013.

Proulx will be holding an information session on Nov. 29 for teachers at the museum, allowing them to meet the educators, discover for themselves what the labs and workshops are like and learn about the galleryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new features. The event runs from 5 to 8 p.m. Admission and parking will be free.

EMC news - The Vanier community is hoping for a snowstorm of support at its seventh annual food bank fundraiser. The Vanier Community Service Centre will hold its annual Snowflake Breakfast on Dec. 7. The event welcomes residents, businesses, partners, politicians and neighbours of Vanier to come eat breakfast and raise money for Partage Vanier, the area food bank. Last year, the event raised more than $20,000 with more than 500 people in attendance. Organizers are looking to match that same amount this year. The breakfast will take place at the Centre PaulineCharron at 164 Jeanne-Mance St. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at Centre PaulineCharron or at the Vanier Community Service Centre. Partage Vanier feeds approximately 500 low-income families in Vanier each month.

EMC news - The United Way has reached the midpoint of its $30-million fundraising goal and campaign organizers are urging donors to keep the momentum going. “We have every confidence in Ottawa,” said campaign co-chairperson Angie Poirier. “Ottawa is the most generous (city), with one in six donating to the campaign.” Since the campaign launched on Sept. 27, it has raised $16.4 million. This year’s campaign has made its recipients the focus and the United Way has showcased them with videos on its website. “It’s the stories we hear about are the lives that are directly changing,” Poirier said. “A life becomes a life and is turned around.” The goal is for people to feel connected with the organizations their donations help. Every little bit helps, said the campaign organizers. “It’s the measurable change,” said Poirier. “If the money isn’t there, then the individuals don’t get to change. These people wouldn’t have

the lives that they come to know if we didn’t have the money and resources to help.” Poirier and campaign cochair Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury have both attended numerous events during the past six weeks aimed at motivating donors. “I was anticipating going into workplaces and (helping) with the launches, but wasn’t anticipating becoming so moved by those who are benefiting from United Way and seeing what it actually means to people,” Poirier said. Fleury said the fundraising efforts of the younger generation of donors are exhilarating. “Youth have the energy,” he said. Poirier said the ideas the younger donors have are unique and motivational. The United Way has a history of staging workplace campaigns, with employees donating portions of their paycheques or holding fundraisers of their own. “It is about team building,” Fleury said. He added anyone can donate to the cause on the United Way’s website, www.unitedwayottawa.com.

EMC news - The Ministry of Natural Resources is asking motorists to be especially cautious on Ontario’s roads this fall because wildlife is on the move. Moose, elk and deer are particularly active in the fall, especially at dawn and dusk, as they search for mates and food. Deer and elk often travel in groups of two or more, so when motorists see one animal there may be more nearby. For more information, go to www.mto.gov.on.ca/english/safety/wildlife.shtml.

This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top toys unveiled in time for holidays Testing council announces annual Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Choice awards Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - Santaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job is a little easier now that the Canadian Toy Testing Council has unveiled the top 10 toys on the market for 2013. More than 500 children between the ages of six months and 12 years tested toys for a period of eight to 12 weeks. Their feedback formed the basis for the councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Choice Awards, which it hands out annually just in time for the holiday shopping season. Though toys seem to increasingly require batteries or a high-tech touchscreen to operate, the councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kid testers gravitated towards toys that involve a little imagination. For children under two, Little Tikes won for its DiscoverySounds activity garden that plays music and includes many windows and cubbies to explore. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like the sounds that the garden makes,â&#x20AC;? said Ethan Gayed, 5, who announced the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Choice Award for Little Tikes. A Fisher Price kitchen and dining room set, complete with plastic pizza, cookies, dishes and pans was also a huge hit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can make food and pretend to cook things,â&#x20AC;? said six-year-old Barrhaven resident Lyra Erhardt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And then we can pretend to eat it.â&#x20AC;?

Building toys were also popular. The Ed Creator DaVinci Block gears, which won in the three years and up category, use magnets to stick together in an infinite number of combinations and designs. Bill and Betty Bricks, which won for five-year-olds, are a set of traditional wooden blocks that turn into towering skyscrapers in no time. Playmobil won for sevenyear-olds with its Future Planet ranger headquarters play set. While building the space station is fun, playing with it afterwards is the best part, said Dillon Snasdell-Taylor, a seven-year-old Carp resident who announced Playmobilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Choice Award. The Playmobil set did have one high-tech feature: a working solar panel that powers a large fan on top of the space headquarters. Board games like Pick Nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Choose â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which requires players to sculpt, hum and act out clues â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the rapid-fire jewel game Mine Shift and strategic ogre-outsmarting game Race to the Treasure all won awards as well. This is the councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 60th anniversary, and Liliane Benoit said the independent toy testing authority relies on more than 200 Canadian families to determine which toys stand up to the test of safety and durability, how well they function and how much fun

Identity protection helps fight scammers Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. That’s the message that seniors at a Rotary Club fraud prevention presentation heard at the Orléans branch of the Ottawa Public Library on Nov. 14. The ABCs of Fraud presentation, which is endorsed by Ottawa police, has been going to different library branches this fall to educate seniors. West Ottawa Rotary Club members Bob Harrison and Linas Pilypaitis spoke to a group of seniors at the Orléans branch. Seniors are more vulnerable to fraud due of several factors, and are often seen as more susceptible, Harrison said. “When I grew up, I was trusting someone with a handshake,” he said. “The doors in my house were never locked.” These days, scams are a dime a dozen and it’s important that people – especially those more vulnerable to scams – take steps to protect themselves. While just over half of all scams arrive by email or electronic communication, there are also telephone and doorto-door scammers.A scam is where someone is supposed to give you something for your money. They’ll end up giving

nothing or something –not exactly as promised. “Everyone in the world is trying to get your money,” Pilypaitis said. The pair acted out an example of a scam for a fake security company. Harrison, the fake security salesman, sold Pilypaitis, acting as a senior, a heavily discounted alarm system. Besides providing a down payment Pilypaitis let Harrison do a full scope of the house, and let him know dates when there would be nobody home – leaving an empty house to rob. “Nobody needs to know when you’ll be away from your home,” Pilypaitis said. They gave some tips to protect identity and personal information, including not to leave mail in a box that anyone could access. Some mail, like tax returns, include information such as a social insurance number.Once a year, file a report for a credit history to check and see if anyone else has tried an unauthorized credit check, said Pilypaitis. They warned against the use of money transfers for anything that might not seem legitimate. A good rule of thumb is never give to any credit card information to anyone, unless you have initiated the contact, Pilypaitis said.

Bartering for survival in the ’30s

I

t seemed to me that not much money changed hands back in the Depression. Of course, there wasn’t much money around. Mother pretty well ran the house on what was in the sugar bowl holding her egg money, which came from selling eggs, cream, butter, chickens and sticky buns door-to-door in Renfrew on Saturdays and of course, in the summertime, a few more pennies were realized when she could add fresh vegetables from our ample garden to her wares. Father always had a few coins in his pocket, but they were few and far between. It seemed to me back then that most of the commerce of the day was done by bartering. Mr. Briscoe at Briscoe’s General Store wasn’t interested in trading what he sold for chickens, vegetables, cream or butter. After all, the entire Northcote farm area had an ample supply of those things themselves. But he always welcomed Mother’s sticky buns. These she traded for sugar and green tea. For the rare times old Dr. Murphy had to drive out all the way from Renfrew and there were very few coins in the egg money bowl, he would be paid for his visit with a freshly plucked chicken, a sealer jar or fresh cream, and of course, eggs. There

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories was always an ample supply of eggs and Dr. Murphy, it seemed to me, never expected to get cold hard cash for his trip out from Renfrew. The stores in town were a different matter. Those owned locally were used to bartering with the farming community. But you could never make

It seemed to me Father was continually bartering with other farmers. It wasn’t at all unusual to see him walking a young heifer out the lane with a rope around its neck and coming back with a colt. a deal with Walker’s Store, which was owned by some big firm in Toronto. It had to be cold hard cash. But it wasn’t unusual to see Mother making a deal at Scott’s Hardware or Aikenhead Store, trading a fresh chicken for chicken wire or freshly churned butter for cough medicine. There really was a Mr. Scott and a Mr. Aikenhead and they seemed

a rope around its neck and coming back with a colt. Or he would load a sheep in the back of the old Model T and come back with a couple of newborn piglets. It was how the farm community survived the terrible Depression that closed in around them. Although we depended heavily on the hand me down boxes that came regularly from from Aunt Lizzie in Re-

gina, it wasn’t at all unusual for the clothes to be traded amongst the neighbours. I once got a lovely coat from my little friend Joyce who had outgrown it. I doubt we had anything to give her in return -- they were so much better off than we were. After all, Joyce lived in a brick house and had a toilet. As regular as clockwork, we had visits from Rawleigh and Watkins door-to-door salesmen. They travelled by horse and buggy, and we could always tell when they were coming in our long lane, because they both had big brass bells around their horse’s necks which gave plenty warning they were on their way. They were both great salesmen and it was hard to resist their wares. It wasn’t unusual for Mother, when she had bought over her limit to start bartering with them. They bantered back and forth and when the salesmen realized there wasn’t enough money to pay for what Mother had chosen, they could either take the couple pounds of butter and a few eggs, or pack up and leave. They usually accepted the barter. It seemed to me back then, that bartering was simply a way of life. There was no embarrassment to trading one thing for another. It was just another tool that helped people of the 1930s survive.

THE CANADIAN CANCER SOCIETY PROVIDES THE WHEELS OF HOPE TO HELP CANCER PATIENTS GET TO THEIR TREATMENTS. For many, Wheels of hope is a life line. It can be the difference between getting to cancer treatment or not. Single mom Chelsie Geib knows all too well how difficult it can be to manage a family and make it to sometimes daily appointments; “Do you know what is worse than being diagnosed with cancer? Not being able to get to the appointments you need to save your life. When I had lost all hope my final call was to the Canadian Cancer Society, who informed me of their free service that helps people like me get to the hospital for appointments. Knowing I could turn to the Society felt like a heavy weight had been lifted off my shoulders. I really could fight this disease – and win.”

Singer fighting bullies with song Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Blues in the Schools creator Maria Hawkins says she is determined to stop every last bully that roams the halls of Ottawa schools. For the past ďŹ ve years, Hawkins has been running the motivational program Stop the Bullying in Ottawa schools. The one-hour presentation teaches students from kindergarten to Grade 8 to not stand around and watch others get bullied. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want them to feel that

itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to do the right thing,â&#x20AC;? Hawkins said. To help get her message across, the blues singer uses music. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It allows the kids to process what I have said in a different way,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It allows me to get more out of the group and reach every last student.â&#x20AC;? Instead of focusing on negative stories about bullying, Hawkins uses positive reinforcement, making every student attending her presentation participate in anti-bullying activities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They walk into the gym and see me and think, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh great, what is this about,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; but

once I get them going, I make sure every butt is up and moving and shouting and participating,â&#x20AC;? Hawkins said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important that each student is engaged in the message.â&#x20AC;? The program is available to any school in the National Capital Region. This is the ďŹ rst year Hawkins does not have any ďŹ nancial support and because of the cost of the program â&#x20AC;&#x201C; $200 for the hour â&#x20AC;&#x201C; schools are no longer lining up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has been hard and I am just making enough to barely survive,â&#x20AC;? she said. But stopping the program is

not an option, Hawkins said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is really important to teach these children bullying is not accepted.â&#x20AC;? The singerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ultimate goal is to take the program out of the classroom and into the community, something she said would require a lot of support from the city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody is targeting the kids, but we need to bring the parents into the dialogue and a community event would be able to do that,â&#x20AC;? she said. Hawkins said she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the funding to hold such a large event. For now, she said she would be happy if

OLG, mayor at odds over terms of new slots deal Lottery corporation says it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t revisit revenue-sharing if a new casino is built Laura Mueller and Alex Boutilier, Metro News laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - As the mayor and city clerk assured councillors that Ottawa would get a new revenue-sharing agreement if a new casino is built, the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation conďŹ rmed that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the case. During a city council meeting on Nov. 14, city clerk and solicitor Rick Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor assured city councillors that a new money-distribution agreement for the slots at Rideau Carleton Raceway would not be binding on a new facility, as the OLG looks for a private developer to build a new casino in Ottawa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have a new arrangement and a new agreement if council decides on a new casino,â&#x20AC;? Mayor Jim Watson said. That understanding was based on discussions he has had with the OLG over the past couple of weeks, Watson said. Not so, says OLG spokesman Tony Bitonti. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(The current agreement)

will apply to a new casino as well,â&#x20AC;? Bitonti said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The new agreement takes effect April 1 (2013), and then if and when a new casino is built, that will be the same funding agreement with the City of Ottawa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nothing changes.â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor conďŹ rmed there are a couple of outstanding process issues he needs to get

Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have a new arrangement and a new agreement if council decides on a new casino. MAYOR JIM WATSON

answers on. One issue that still needs to be clariďŹ ed is a provision tying the new agreement to the location of the current slots at the Rideau Carleton Raceway. Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s his understanding that if the raceway wins a bid to become the new casino, the OLG could choose to either keep the same mon-

ey-sharing agreement or come back to the city with a new offer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That sounds like an odd situation,â&#x20AC;? said Beacon HillCyrville Coun. Tim Tierney. Attempts to negotiate with the OLG have not received a good reception, Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor said. The corporation was hesitant to even adjust the text of the agreement to include the proper legal name of the City of Ottawa, Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor said. There is very little opportunity for dialog on the terms of the agreement, he said, adding that it is â&#x20AC;&#x153;akin to a mother giving an allowance to her child.â&#x20AC;? Despite questioning the agreement, councillors voted 20-3 to approve the new deal, which has no expiry date. Over the past ďŹ ve years, the city has received between $4.3 and $4.4 million annually from 1,250 slot machines at the Rideau Carleton Raceway. The new agreement would put $1.3 million more into the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coffers each year if slot revenue remains the same. The agreement means the city gets 5.25 per cent of ďŹ rst $65 million of net slot revenue, three per cent on next $135 million, 2.5 per cent of the next $300 million and half a per cent of the remainder of net slot revenue.

Improving the lives of women in need Margaret (Peggy) Lister, president of Cornerstone Housing for Women, is honoured with Mayor Jim Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s City Builder Award during the Nov. 14 meeting of city council. Lister has held that role at Cornerstone for 10 years and has worked to make Ottawa a better place for four decades. She recently spearheaded an initiative to develop a new Booth Street facility to provide healthcare and support for 42 women who are seniors or younger women with complex needs, such as mental health challenges. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Peggy is a compassionate and motivated leader who has developed the organizational capacity of Cornerstone and has increased its effectiveness in providing results that truly improve the lives of many women in need of assistance,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; a city press release states. Rideau-Rockcliffe Coun. Peter Clark, right, Listerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ward councillor, was also on hand.

Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury fields questions from area residents at the Lowertown Community Association annual general meeting on Nov. 12.

Lowertown asks more of Fleury Association critical of councillorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work on issues in community EMC news - Reducing and understanding homelessness concerns in the ByWard Market is the Lowertown Community Associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newest priority, the group announced at its Nov. 12 annual general meeting. The association said the priority will be addressed in a new committee, which president Marc Aubin said will be dedicated to educating the association on the issue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are not well educated on homelessness in our neighbourhood,â&#x20AC;? Aubin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the first things the group will do is to educate themselves on the issue and share that with the rest of us.â&#x20AC;? The issue was first addressed in an online survey for residents conducted during the late summer. The new committee has been added to the growing roster of committees at the association, which created a planning committee, an abandoned houses committee and a heritage committee at the start of its session for the 2011-2012 year. The annual general meeting also addressed some of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s successes for the association, which include the Byward Market visioning exercise, the survey, a funding grant from Caisse Populaire Desjardins to help revitalize one of the neighbourhoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parks and the successful fight to stop the National Capital Commission

from demolishing three heritage homes in the market area. Aubin said he received word that former governor general Adrienne Clarkson, who once lived in one of the homes, had written to Mayor Jim Watson thanking the city for stopping the demolition of her childhood home. More than 30 residents filled the small boardroom at the Ruthier Community Centre for the meeting, which also welcomed guests such as Ottawa-Vanier MPP Madeleine Meilleur, community police officer Const. Ryan Pierce and Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury, who presented residents an update on projects in the community.

During the question-and-answer period with their councillor, residents questioned Fleuryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s support for the community, saying he has not been there for them when they needed him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need you to give up more help,â&#x20AC;? said resident Donna Kearns, who criticized Fleuryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to helping the residents with the Sussex homes issue. Fleury countered, saying he did help by facilitating a meeting with planning committee chairman Peter Hume and committee member Jan Harder. Kearns was not satisfied. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We needed your help before,â&#x20AC;? she said. Adding Hume suggested that if they wanted to save the

The councillor confirmed he would help in any way he could. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, it is something we can do for you,â&#x20AC;? Fleury said.

City hall boot camp Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - When Antonio Misaka tried to organize an event for his tech-based nonproďŹ t group with the city, he was met with a brick wall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how things work when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s related to the city,â&#x20AC;? said the Britannia Heights resident who works as the system manager for CompuCorps, a technology training and mentorship charity that recycles electronic devices. Misaka wanted to organize an e-waste drop-off in partnership with the city, but he had â&#x20AC;&#x153;no clue how to get informationâ&#x20AC;? from city hall. Sarah Smythe, a community educator from Stittsville, works with children in Kanata and wants to teach them how to be more involved in their community. Misaka and Smythe had very different reasons for wanting to engage in civic life when they decided to attend a trial workshop run by a new local organization called the

Citizens Academy. The idea for the academy sprung from founder Ken Victorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experience observing a similar program in Syracuse, N.Y., last winter. Victor, a lead facilitator with Leadership Ottawa, quickly enlisted his colleague, Manjit Basi, to bring the model to Ottawa. The idea is to bring citizens from all walks of life together with experts to spark a respectful discussion about the process of engaging with the city and fostering change. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We came back and on our drive we were just going a mile a minute,â&#x20AC;? Basi said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is what dialogue and learning needs to look like. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What inspired us was that maybe learning how your municipal government works, which is the level of government closest to you, can actually have citizens engage in a more meaningful and strategic way.â&#x20AC;? The pair decided to craft an academy that reďŹ&#x201A;ects Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unique character. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ottawa is full of people who care, who want to do

things to make their community better and to make their city better, but sometimes they are overwhelmed,â&#x20AC;? Basi said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the right people, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the networks and they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the process. Sometimes they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know their rights and how they can engage.â&#x20AC;? Misaka and Smythe joined approximately 60 people packed into a basement room at the Hintonburg Community Centre on Nov. 15 for the second of two English-language classes. The academy also offered French courses and online sessions as part of a pilot project to test out their model. The group plans to ďŹ nd additional funding and reďŹ ne the courses in hopes of offering them in eight-week runs starting next fall. Basi is insistent the courses would always remain free for citizens, but offering sessions tailored to groups to businesses could be done for a fee to keep the organization aďŹ&#x201A;oat, she said. See GROUP, page 31

Group looking to train citizens on how to engage in civic life Continued from page 30

and sports clubs and what is the threshold of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s responsibility for recreation, compared to program offered by those other sources? The group also heard from Kelly Robertson, a West Carleton resident who is the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manager of recreation programs, who outlined how the outdoor rink program is a great example of delivering recreation programming through community partnerships. The city provides grants and infrastructure to community groups to run a

free-access outdoor skating and hockey rink in neighbourhoods during the winter. That topic of community partnerships dominated the discussion. Participants wanted to know how the city seeks to engage residents in planning the recreation offerings for their communities and why there arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t more partnerships with schools and universities that already have facilities in which the city could run programs. Mohamed Sofa, a community activist who works at the

Pinecrest Queensway Community Health Resource Centre, was the last presenter. There were many nodding heads in the audience as he described a collaboration he and other groups set up in his neighbourhood called RecNet so they can get together and collectively determine what community needs are not being met. But how those ideas can get traction at city hall is another matter and a question that was left somewhat unanswered during the session. Robertson indi-

cated that an idea can start with just one citizen, but whether it will become a program offering is dependant on so many factors. Likewise, participants left with no solid vision for how to set up a community network like RecNet or how successful it would be. But they did leave the session inspired by the discussion, which opened them up to new ways of thinking about recreational possibilities and priorities for their communities.

The Nov. 15 session was intended to be about how to get involved in recreation decisions for their communities, who is responsible and how those decisions are made. But presenters and participants were keen to engage in a philosophical discussion about why and how the city offers recreation programs and facilities and who they are geared towards. Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury, a sports manage-

ment graduate and former city lifeguard, kicked off the discussion with a series of statements to get people thinking, including a question about whether the city is building health care or â&#x20AC;&#x153;sick care.â&#x20AC;? Recreation can be a preventative health measure or it can include an element of elite-level training. Fleury asked the audience to think about what kinds of goals the city is trying to reach when it develops recreation programs: access for all citizens or athletic training? What is the role of businesses

Alta Vista man honoured for contribution to water polo Eddie Rwema eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC sports – Four-time water polo Olympian and long-time coach David Hart has been honoured with a major national award by the Coaching Association of Canada. The 60-year-old Ottawa resident was presented with the Geoff Gowan award for his lifetime contribution to coaching development on Nov. 12. “I was really honoured and of course quite proud to be chosen,” said Hart. “I was judged against other outstanding candidates from both summer and winter Olympic sports so the scope of the award is very significant indeed.” Still a talent scout and mentor for the national men’s and women’s water polo teams, Hart said it was hard to put into words how special the award was to him. “I think it is a big feather in the cap for Water Polo Canada,” said Hart. Hart’s career as an athlete, coach and leader in the sport of water polo is the most extensive of any Canadian in the history of the sport, according to his biography. “I have been a constant figure within the national and international scene 1969 to present day,” said Hart. As a player, Hart spent eight

years on the men’s national team and was co-captain at the 1976 Olympic Summer Games in Montreal. “At my age it is a time of reflection on my career and beginning to realize that many or most of my achievements are behind me and wondering what kind of an impact I may have had over the years,” he said. Hart started his water polo career in 1965 as a high school player, joined the national men’s team in 1969 and retired after the 1976 Olympics. He immediately became a professional coach, a job he has held to this day. “Coaching for me is like parenting; it’s a long-term project,” said Hart. “With your athletes in mind, you need to have the mindset to manage the demands and expectations of the present while preparing for the future.” That coaching career has made him the only Canadian to have worked with all six Canadian national team programs and the only one to have coached a foreign national water polo team. As a coach, Hart won eight international medals, four national championships with the Hamilton Aquatic Club in the early to mid 1970s, and has coached in the Ottawa area for more than three decades since then. He also coached the national team in two Olympics.

David Hart, a long-time Ottawa resident was recently presented with the Geoff Gowan award for his lifetime contribution to coaching water polo. From 2002 to 2003, Hart was the head coach of the Brazilian women’s team. “The opportunity to become the first and only Canadian water polo personality to coach a foreign national team was quite an experience,” Hart said. “I learned to speak Portuguese and made many great friends there.” He helped the Brazilian team win a bronze medal at the 2003 Pan American Games.

“That was terrific as well,” he said. Hart said water polo has had a profound effect upon him and has made him grow as an individual. “I calculated recently that I must have signed somewhere between 30 and 35 one-year contracts over my career,” he said. “In theory I had no security in my career, but I feel that the

quality of my work and my passion were my security. It turns out this was the case.” According to Ahmed ElAwadi, executive director of Water Polo Canada, Hart’s impact on water polo in Canada is unparalleled. “The sport is light years ahead of where it was back in the 1960s and 1970s. We simply could not have progressed this far without David Hart’s

vision and leadership and, most of all, his infectious passion for the game.” Even with all those accomplishments, Hart doesn’t feel there is any one moment that is more important than another. “I had so many great moments as an athlete and coach and of course there were disappointments and regrets too,” he said.

Fantastic finish gives St. Peter fifth football title in a row Dan Plouffe

EMC sports - The aura of invincibility surrounding the St. Peter Knights senior football team grew to an even greater level as they captured the national capital high school championship at the Nepean Sportsplexâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Minto Field. Winning a ďŹ fth consecutive title certainly contributes to a big part of the mystique, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to imagine the Knights ever facing another opponent in future years with as much explosive talent as the St. Francis-Xavier Coyotes, or a team that could corner St. Peter in the late stages of a championship game. The Coyotes were the dominant team for the majority of the Nov. 10 contest, building a comfortable lead thanks to a Tunde Adeleke touchdown rush, a safety, a single and a ďŹ eld goal. They completely stalled the Knightsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offensive attack en route to a 13-0 advantage in the fourth quarter. And once St. Peter was ďŹ nally was able to claw back to within a touchdown with 7:02 left, Nathaniel Hamlin erased all that effort in one play with a potentially demoralizing touchdown return on the ensuing kickoff. But the Knights were not

to be denied what seems to be their annual destiny, as quarterback Jake Molinski twice marched them down the ďŹ eld in the ďŹ nal three minutes, converting several third-down plays before plunging in for the winning touchdown with 6.8 seconds on the clock. Final score: 21-20 contest for the Knights. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ďŹ ve-time defending champions â&#x20AC;&#x201C; never underestimate the heart of a champion,â&#x20AC;? said St. Francis-Xavier coach Mark Jennings. On the other side of the ball, Molinski created a tale heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to tell his kids with the miracle comeback he engineered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This could have been my last football game,â&#x20AC;? said Molinski, who drew inspiration from his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defeat to the Coyotes in the junior ďŹ nal two years ago, not to mention a 34-22 regular-season loss. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pretty much every time I strap the football pads on thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a game I think of. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget that kind of stuff.â&#x20AC;? Without two of his biggest weapons out due to injury â&#x20AC;&#x201C; running back Rashari Henry and receiver Tyrone Pierre â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Molinski threw pinpoint strikes to his receivers when it mattered most. And when no one was open, he showed

that his pocket passing ability wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only tool heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got, pulling the ball down on countless occasions and attacking defenders like a running back. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody sees him as this big guy, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good athlete,â&#x20AC;? said St. Peter coach Jim Mick. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big load and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a competitor and he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like losing.â&#x20AC;? Molinski scored two rushing touchdowns, while Rouben Charles caught the other. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the hardest team we ever played. I was scared. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to lose,â&#x20AC;? Charles said. The Knights now move to face Frontenac Secondary School of Kingston in the OFSAA National Capital Bowl semifinal game, but they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t soon forget the fantastic finish to the fifthstraight championship in a series that shows no signs of coming to an end any time soon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re down two touchdowns with a couple minutes left, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crazy to think we won the game,â&#x20AC;? Molinski added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been there before, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no greater feeling than when you take the lead with six seconds left in the championship.â&#x20AC;?

Adeleke scored a touchdown off a direct snap to give the Coyotes a 10-0 first-half lead, but a wild fourth-quarter comeback by the St. Peter Knights allowed the five-time high school city champions to escape with a 21-20 victory over St. FX on Nov. 10 at Minto Field.

Fleas, an annual external parasite, are mostly harmless. The biggest problem caused by ďŹ&#x201A;eas is itching. However, some pets or people may be allergic to ďŹ&#x201A;ea saliva, which causes ďŹ&#x201A;ea allergy dermatitis (super-itchy spots with hair-loss); young, sick or elderly pets can become anemic from too much blood loss. These wingless insects are capable of jumping long distances. While cat and dog ďŹ&#x201A;eas prefer to feast on animal blood, they will turn to a human host if needed. The life-cycle of a ďŹ&#x201A;ea has four stages: s %GGS WHICHFALLFROMTHEHOSTINTOTHEENVIRONMENT s ,ARVAE WHICHLIVEOFFOFTHEFALLENFECALMATTEROFADULT ďŹ&#x201A;eas found in carpets and in lawns. s 0UPAE WHICHISTHECOCOON4HEYDONOTEMERGEUNTILA host is detected (via warmth /vibration) s !DULTS WHICHFEASTONBLOOD If you do have a ďŹ&#x201A;ea-infestation, it is important to treat the petâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s environment as well, to eliminate ďŹ&#x201A;ea eggs and larvae. There are many over-the-counter products that help solve ďŹ&#x201A;ea problems such as ďŹ&#x201A;ea sprays (both for the pet and environment), shampoos, or collars. While the costs may be lower for over-thecounter products ($5 to $30), they often need to be reapplied to solve a ďŹ&#x201A;ea infestation.

Carleton County jailhouse ready to rock Music, burlesque, tattoos all part of fun at 150-year-old prison Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland

EMC entertainment - Pocket a nail file, count your smokes and roll up your sleeves for a one-night-only, fun-filled extravaganza at Ottawa’s only jail. The Carleton County Gaol will be alive again with sound on Nov. 22, the first time since closing in 1972. Rockabillycountry band Dang Guilty and the burlesque troupe Capital Tease will be performing at Mugshots Jail Bar, also known as the 8th floor or death row, of Ottawa’s county jail at 75 Nicholas St. Gorgeous George of Planet Ink will be the official jailhouse tattoo artist, offering free tattoos for anyone brave enough

to get inked in a jail cell during the concert. And to keep the party going, the rum will be flowing from the evening’s sponsor, Sailor Jerry Rum. A three piece ensemble, Dang Guilty, comprises two high school classmates, Joel Hayward on vocals and guitars and bassist James Rooke, along with Andy Clapson on drums. “You have the gallows, the cells and etchings on the walls and information plaques spread out,” Rooke said. “All the rooms, halls and stairwells are separated by black steel bars. I don’t really believe in (the) paranormal, but you can feel the history. It’s a bit creepy.” The band is a little concerned about how the sound is

going to reverberate in the steel and concrete room. “I can’t imagine an electric rockabilly trio (playing at the location) let alone the screams and chaos of jail guards and prisoners back in the day,” Rooke said. He added he will be getting his first tattoo at the event, a bass clef, fitting he said, as he has played the bass his whole life. “It’s a big part of who I am,” Rooke said. “I wouldn’t regret it when I get older.” The former jail was in operation from from 1862 to 1972 and throughout that time only five official hangings were ever recorded, but it’s reputed that the eighth floor, death row, may have been filled with more than 150 inmates, based on unmarked graves found during construction of the Mackenzie King Bridge and surrounding area. The county jail has since been turned into Hostel Inter-

Leek, potato, ham gratin a tasty dish for cold days EMC lifestyle - Firm cheeses offer a great flexibility of use. They keep very well. They are delicious by themselves and can also be used in a thousand different ways in the kitchen. Pastas, cooked dishes, quiches, omelets, gratins, sandwiches and salads couldn’t survive by without them! At any meal, these cheeses add taste and nutritional value. Gratins are often laden with heavy cream and butter, and cheese. This lightened version is just as delicious and wonderfully comforting. To serve with roast meats or poultry, omit the ham. Preparation time: 15 minutes. Cooking time: one hour. Servings: four as main course or six as side dish. INGREDIENTS

• 1 bunch leeks (two to four) • 1 tbsp (15 ml) each of olive oil and butter • 2 cloves garlic, minced

More Ontarians encouraged to get screened for cancer Initiative calls on 100,000 additional people to be checked EMC news - Cancer Care Ontario has launched Time to Screen, a call to action for at least 100,000 additional residents to screen for breast, cervical and colorectal cancer over the next six months. Time to Screen also encourages Ontarians to have open conversations with their family and friends about getting screened, as cancer screening will help save countless lives by enabling earlier diagnosis and treatment. Included in the initiative are creative e-cards about cancer screening for Ontarians to share with their loved ones. Residents are also encouraged to talk to their healthcare provider about being screened or visit the Time to Screen tool to ďŹ nd out the right time to be screened. Time to Screen speciďŹ cally encourages: â&#x20AC;˘ Average-risk men and women, 50 to 74 years of age, to screen for colorectal cancer every two years using the fecal occult blood test. â&#x20AC;˘ Average risk women 50 to 74 years of age to screen for breast cancer every two years with mammography. â&#x20AC;˘ Women 21 to 70 years to screen for cervical cancer every three years with a Pap test. Women 30 to 69 years of age who have been identiďŹ ed as being at high risk for breast cancer should have a screening mammogram and MRI every year.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is strong evidence that screening for colorectal, breast and cervical cancers can reduce mortality,â&#x20AC;? said Dr. Linda Rabeneck of Cancer Care Ontario. SEES WHAT YOU CANâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;T

Cancer screening sees what you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t and is proven to save lives by detecting pre-cancerous changes or cancer at an early stage. Cervical cancer is almost entirely preventable with regular Pap tests, appropriate and timely follow-up and HPV immunization. When caught early, there is a 90 per cent chance that people with colorectal cancer will be cured. And between 1990 and 2008, breast cancer death rates for Ontario women decreased by 37 per cent, which may be the result of better treatments and increased screening with mammography and a recent decline in breast cancer incidence. Recently, cervical cancer screening guidelines were updated outlining the right age for women to screen and the time interval between tests. In Ontario, cervical cancer screening is now recommended starting at age 21 and every three years until age 70 for all women who are or ever have been sexually active. Screening is not recommended for women under the age of 21.

WORKING WITH ONTARIOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S DOCTORS TO PROTECT HEALTH CARE

Half a Million Canadians Claim Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Arts Tax Credit

My colleagues and I are proud to have reached a tentative agreement with Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doctors that, if ratiďŹ ed, will protect and make further gains in health care while helping to balance the budget. The Ontario Medical Association Board of Directors has unanimously recommended the agreement for ratiďŹ cation by its members. The physician ratiďŹ cation process will occur in early December.

Since being elected in 2006, our Conservative Government has established a number of important tax relief measures including the new Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Arts Tax Credit. We all want the best for our children, and I know that many families right here in Nepean-Carleton are working hard to ensure theirs can participate in artistic and cultural activities. I am committed to supporting these hardworking families help their children reach their full potential. In 2011, nearly 500,000 Canadians claimed the credit on their tax returns. It is wonderful to see so many families taking advantage of this opportunity.

This is good news for patients and all Ontario families who care about a strong, sustainable health care system. We know that we can only build a strong, sustainable health care system by working closely with our doctors. This agreement offers better care for patients by allowing for more e-consultations with doctors and expanded access to primary care, including house calls.

The Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Arts Tax Credit helps with the cost of organized artistic and cultural activities. When children take part in eligible art programs, families can claim the cost of those programs, up to a maximum of $500 per child, on their income tax and beneďŹ t returns. This means saving as much as $75 on their tax bill for each childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s programs. In addition, families can also claim the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ tness tax credit, also up to a maximum of $500 per child, for eligible programs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a proposal which I successfully had included in Budget 2006.

Working with doctors, our government has created a partnership that will allow us to continuously review the latest evidence and ďŹ nd new ways of supporting the sustainability of our health care system. At Kumon, we give your kids the power of knowing. Whether your child needs extra help with math and reading or wants new academic challenges, our specialized learning program provides children of any age or ability with the confidence to achieve more all on their own. Kumon Math & Reading Centre of Riverside South tMJZJOHRJ!JLVNPODPN ,VNPO.BUI3FBEJOH$FOUSFPG"MUB7JTUB tBOOFNBSJFTDIJL!JLVNPODPN

We understand that families have a difďŹ cult time making ends meet, and that is why we will continue to offer programs like this to them. The average family of four now receives more than $3,000 in extra tax savings, and the federal tax burden for all Canadians is now the lowest it has been in half a century. Our Government remains committed to and focused on economic growth, the creation of jobs, and the long-term economic prosperity of Canadians.

WE ARE HERE TO HELP

I encourage you to check the Canada Revenue Agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website for more information about all of the credits and tax savings you may eligible for. Remember, save your receipts for 2012 as you can start claiming these credits on your income tax beneďŹ t return when you ďŹ le your taxes in early 2013.

Please visit my community ofďŹ ce at 1795 Kilborn Avenue or contact my staff at 613-736-9573 if we can be of any assistance. We will try our best to help you. R0011753747-1122
