EMC news - A plan to turn a vacant public works yard into a hub for business innovation and an arts studio won support from councillors and community members on Feb. 21. The city’s finance and economic development committee gave the thumbs up to a proposal to include an innovation centre for Invest Ottawa’s business incubation, as well as a multi-purpose studio and possibly a video soundstage as part of a community design plan for the Bayview area. The approval was just the first step for the new vision for Bayview yards. It means the ideas will be included in the community design plan that has been in the works since 2005 and is set to be completed sometime this year. The 6.7-hectare former railyard straddles the area north of Scott Street between Bayview Avenue and Lebreton Flats, and includes the Bayview OTrain and Transitway stations. It contains the Bayview garage, a three-storey building that was the long-time home of Ottawa’s public works operations. The entire site is still owned by the city. The push to make it into an innovation centre comes from an opportunity presented by Invest Ottawa, a business incubation and economic development agency that operates at arms-length from city hall.

Another proposal filed for 233 Armstrong St. Latest plan calls for 18-storey tower alongside smaller structures Steph Willems

EMC news - A third version of a controversial development proposal has been filed for a property near the Parkdale Market, but members of the surrounding community see it as more of the same. The zoning bylaw amendment application filed by Tega Homes concerns an 18-storey mixed-use building proposed for 233 Armstrong St. and 3

Hamilton Ave. sites located to the west and north of the venerable Carleton Tavern. It’s the third time a proposal has been considered for this site; the first being a controversial 36-storey proposal submitted in 2011, the second being an eight and 18-storey tower combination filed the following year. The current proposal calls for a building of eight storeys to wrap around the north and west sides of the block, with



an 18-storey portion rising from the northwest corner. The eight-storey portions, which would front onto Armstrong and Parkdale Avenue, would be stepped back after two stories. “It’s the same 18-and-eight proposal, but (the developer has) shifted the taller tower away from the street,” said Jeff Leiper, president of the Hintonburg Community Association. “It hasn’t made any dif-

ference to us; for all intents and purposes, it’s the same proposal. We stick to what we feel is very specific wording in the community design plan, which states a maximum building height of eight storeys. Our position hasn’t changed – we’re adamantly opposed.” The original 36-storey proposal was opposed by the Hintonburg Community Association, Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs and city staff.

Associations concerned with lack of consultation Continued from page 1

Invest Ottawa was formerly known as OCRI, the Ottawa Centre for Research and Innovation, but changed its name and mission last summer. The organization has already outgrown its space at 80 Aberdeen St., where it provides office space for start-ups. The provincial government is willing to kick in some funding for Invest Ottawa’s relocation, provided it has the city’s support to move to an identified location – hence, Bayview yards. The city has also been seek-

ing a private partner to set up a video production studio and soundstage and the Bayview garage might present a perfect opportunity for that type of facility. “Given that the potential for an innovation complex and potential multi-purpose studio are opportunities that have come to the forefront during the period that the CDP (community design plan) is being finalized, there is an opportunity as part of the process to finalize the CDP to provide for community input to be provided on these two uses as part of the development pro-

Association, and Jeff Leiper, president of the Hintonburg Community Association, told councillors it was unacceptable that they were blindsided by the proposal. Bayview yards is located in Mechanicsville, but the community association there has only recently been reformed after a period of dormancy. Hintonburg, however, has been deeply involved in consulting on the community design plan and even financed an exercise with McGill University planning students to envision a future use for the Bayview yards.

gram for the city-owned Bayview site,” the report reads. The provincial government has expressed interest in the project, said John Smit, manager of urban development review. He and the city’s economic development office are recommending that the city apply to the province for a one-time grant of $15 million to fund the project. The only real black mark on the plan is the lack of citizen input, said representatives of community associations in the area. Both Guy Lachapelle, president of the Mechanicsville Community

“It is simply inacceptable that with months to consult, this proposal was kept secret until days ago,” Leiper told the committee. The report indicates that the provincial government and Invest Ottawa were the only bodies consulted about this part of the plan. Mayor Jim Watson, who heads up the finance committee, said the community will have a chance to comment and be involved as the community design plan moves forward. Lachapelle asked the city to consider the provision of community space in the proposed used for the site. With the city’s light-rail system on the way, Mechanicsville has been under incredible development pressure, Lachapelle said. He expects the neighbourhood’s population to triple or quadruple in the next few years as residents begin to move into new condo towers along Scott Street. “This neighbourhood is in dire need of community services to meet the needs of the current and growing population,” Lachapelle said. “The Bayview yard is the only piece of space left … That is why the Bayview space is so crucial to Mechanicsville’s future.”

In the report, the concept for an innovation complex would be a 10- to 14-storey building containing office space and room for private commercial tenants, groundfloor retail, “meeting rooms of various capacities, small auditoriums and lecture facilities, and reception rooms,” according to the city’s report. Space for artists will also be considered, according to the report. Another concern shared by community members was the heritage-protection process city staff outlined. The report proposes figuring out how the city wants to use old public works building before applying for a heritage designation, but that’s not the way it’s supposed to work, said Linda Hoad of the Hintonburg Community Association. She and Leiper said the designation should come before a new use for the building is found. Smit said the intent has always been to designate the building, but because it’s city owned and the city is the one planning to protect it, there has been no rush. A new use for the building is almost finalized, so Smit said he’d have no problem if council wanted to vote to seek the heritage designation right away. That would be council’s decision, though, he added.

Residents eager to weigh in on Bayview yards public space

EMC news - Residents living near the Bayview yards site are eager to get in on the ground floor when it comes to planning community amenities. Construction of an innovation complex at the Bayview public works site is a major first step in the redevelopment of the area, but what form the community space will take at the location is still uncertain. The Jan. 21 finance and economic development committee approved of a report that calls for “meeting rooms of various capacities, small auditoriums and lecture facilities and reception rooms,” to be located in the 10- to 14-storey building planned for the area behind the existing public works building at 7 Bayview Ave. That building would contain multi-purpose studios under a plan being spearheaded by Invest Ottawa, the city’s arm’slength economic development agency. Few details are clear at this point, but representatives from Mechanicsville and Hintonburg are eager to become involved in planning how the public space component of the Bayview yards site – which will subject to a future community design plan – will come into being. Likely, discussion of this

Steph Willems/Metroland

A possible innovation complex to be built at the Bayview yards site would contain community space. Members of the surrounding community want to make sure their voices are heard when it comes to the planning process. space will be part of the broader discussion surrounding the CDP. “What we have to remember is what was sent to council (Jan. 21) was a direction to staff to continue their work, and flip it into the CDP consultation,” said Guy Lachapelle, president of the Mechanicsville Community Association, who was among those who made presentations at the finance and economic development committee meeting. He added that the community association will have to act quickly to influence what things will go into the innova-

tion centre. Lachapelle sees this as a first step towards constructive discussions on what amenities in the future development would most be of benefit to existing and future residents of the area. Both Lachapelle and Hintonburg Community Association president Jeff Leiper mentioned the likelihood of creating a municipal land development corporation to guide development in the areas of the Bayview site not occupied by the innovation centre. This scenario, coupled with the community discussions,

would allow the opportunity for greater community input, he said. “We, along with the MCA, would like to have a community representative sitting on the board of any (municipal land development corporation),” said Leiper, saying it would be unusual for that not to happen. The CDP planning process for Bayview would also require a number of rezonings, meaning detailed plans for a public space – decided by the community – could be made part of the rezoning document. “The lines of communication are open,” said Leiper. “We just need to work through the process right now.” Rarely does neighbourhood planning happen in a vacuum and Bayview is no exception. With a community design plan set be created in Mechanicsville and another for the Scott Street corridor, members of the public advisory committee will be challenged to guide the process. But creating plans concurrently can also present opportunities, according to Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs. “It’s an opportunity to provide needed services in another (CDP) area that will serve the same community,” she said, describing a scenario where a type of space not available in one CDP area could possibly be designated in a neighbouring CDP area.

“It gives us more flexibility to look at zoning for these eventualities. Having every-

thing happening at once can be a benefit, but it will take a lot of volunteer hours.”

Community reps gear up for planning review First time Federation of Citizens Associations invited to participate in Official Plan review EMC news - How can we create a more liveable Ottawa? That’s the theme of an upcoming public consultation on how to rewrite the city’s Official Plan and the rest of its master plans for transportation, infrastructure, cycling and pedestrians –documents that set the stage for Ottawa’s development. The city is holding its first public meeting about the review on Jan. 29, but community association representatives got a head start on the issue when about 40 of them gathered for a brainstorming session at the Overbrook Community Centre on Jan. 10. The session was hosted by the Federation of Citizens Associations, a citywide group that represents a number of community associations. For the first time, the city invited the federation to send two representatives to sit on one of three consultation panels that will undertake the in-depth consultation and review of the plans. “There was no such community panel in previous run-

arounds of the Official Plan,� said federation member and Glebe resident Bob Brocklebank, one of the people taking the lead on the federation’s master plan input. “They have provided a greater role for the community this time than in 2009.� “We’re trying to build a new city and have some influence over that,� added Gary Sealey, a federation member from the Kanata-Beaverbrook Community Association. From infill to traffic congestion to more nebulous concepts like density targets and sustainability benchmarks, participants covered off what they see as the building blocks for a more liveable city. Infill was a common concern. Anna Cuylits from Old Ottawa South said her community would like to see rules that have more teeth with regards to things like building setbacks and height. In Old Ottawa South, one of the main concerns will be pushing for the Alta Vista transportation corridor to be completely removed from transportation plans. The corridor is a proposed road linking Lees Avenue to Ottawa Hospital’s General Campus. There was also some in-

No matter what actually ends up in the Official Plan

and master plans, it will be important to ensure those ideas are put into practice. To that end, several community representatives suggested a need for a report card to measure the success or failure of the initiatives in the plans.

Glebe Annex to hold first community meeting Constitution, name, board composition to be discussed Michelle Nash

EMC ! news - Residents of the Glebe Annex neighbour! hood are taking the next steps toward forming a community ! association, with plans to hold a meeting early next month. ! Located to the northwest of

the Glebe, the annex has been represented informally by the Glebe Community Association or the Dalhousie Community Association in the past, but some residents felt it was time for the neighbourhood to take control of its own future. The first meeting about the

new association will be held at the Glebe Community Centre, 175 Third Ave. on Feb. 6. Organizing the event are Sue Stefko, Peggy Kampouris and Sylvia Milne, who said the continuing concerns about development and other issues drove some community members to mobilize.

The Glebe Annex will hold its first meeting on Feb. 6 at the Glebe Community Centre. A lack of parks and recreation facilities will be among the topics on the agenda “Development is number one, but traffic, safety and security, environmental concerns and lack of recreation facilities are all issues we hope to address,” Milne said. A condominium development at the corner of Cambridge Street and Bronson Avenue was the catalyst that got the wheels in motion towards forming the new association. “We needed our own association. There are a few issues with development that need our attention,” Milne said. “As well, there is no place for us to hold a public meeting and no parks where people can go to play, we need something.” When it comes to this particular development at Cambridge and Bronson, Milne said concerns over lack of parkland or providing a public space for the neighbourhood are definitely things the group hopes to make known. “I think when a developer submits a plan there should be

some consideration for where a public space should go,” she said. After word was circulated late last year that some residents in the annex were interested in forming an association, Milne said the three women received many emails and calls from other interested residents, and there are now seven people helping organize the first meeting. To get the word out, Milne said flyers have been distributed around the neighbourhood. “The flyers will help us determine the number of residences in the annex,” she said. Milne used to live in Kanata, during which time she and her husband were very active in their local community association. She said she has found that starting up this neighbourhood association has brought back all those memories.

“I’m loving this. I’m meeting more people everyday who are enthusiastic and smart, people who are interested in doing something positive in this community,” Milne said. “It feels so good to be moving forward and meeting people who all think the same way.” Capital Coun. David Chernushenko has also said he will attend the meeting. “The councillor has been very supportive of us,” she said. The goal for the February meeting is to reach out to residents and let them know what is going on, how they can get involved and that from this point on, there will be an association representing their concerns at city hall. The agenda will include a decision on the association’s official name, the election of an executive committee and the drafting of a constitution. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at the community centre.

Mixed-use development proposed for Chinatown Steph Willems

proposal. At nine storeys, it is taller than the four-to-six storeys allowed along traditional mainstreets, though the designation allows for taller structures in certain cases. Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes said that while the community will have to decide how they feel about the proposed height, the development would be a â&#x20AC;&#x153;positiveâ&#x20AC;? addition to a community long underserved by grocery stores and

new rental housing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will be a big help,â&#x20AC;? said Holmes, describing how the opening of the T&T Superstore in the south end of the city drew business away from Chinatown merchants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(A grocery store) would be very good for the street, and is certainly needed.â&#x20AC;? With construction of new rental units declining in the face of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s condo boom and with an extremely low

apartment vacancy rate, Holmes sees the new units as another community beneďŹ t. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seventy-ďŹ ve new units of rental housing is something thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really needed in this part of downtown,â&#x20AC;? she said, citing the siteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proximity to jobs and transit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know the Chinatown (business improvement area) is pleased to hear about the proposal.â&#x20AC;? The rendering submitted by developer DCR Phoenix

shows a building with brick exterior cladding on lower ďŹ&#x201A;oors, a common building ďŹ nish in Chinatown, with lightercoloured materials for upper ďŹ&#x201A;oors. Narrow setbacks at the ďŹ fth and ninth ďŹ&#x201A;oors serve to reduce massing when viewed at sidewalk level. Holmes said the comment period for the proposal ends Feb. 13, with a decision by city staff scheduled for April 23.


EMC news - A proposed development located at the corner of Somerset and Lebreton streets would add two muchneeded things to the neighbourhood â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a grocery store and rental apartments.

Jumping off the development merry-go-round


he challenges posed by development projects popping up across the city call for innovative responses, which is exactly what one Ottawa community association is doing. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something other community groups would be wise to take a long, hard look at as well. The idea, proposed by the Ottawa South Community Association, is to recruit members who have expertise

in land-use planning, architecture development and construction on the associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planning and development review committee, known as OSWatch. The committee is forced to deal with complex development applications, relying on a dozen or so members who may not have the necessary expertise or experience to craft a position on such proposals. This forces the committee to spend most of its energy

trying to understand and later fight unwanted applications instead of being proactive and encouraging desired development. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a familiar problem for the dozens of community associations across Ottawa and the result is costly and unproductive. The process begins with a development application. If community members donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like the proposed building, a number of meetings are held where the developer

outlines its plans, followed by a response â&#x20AC;&#x201C; usually negative â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from area residents. If the political pressure is strong enough, the ward councillor fights the application, sometimes over the objections of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planning staff. If city council rejects the application, the developer has the option of appealing to the Ontario Municipal Board. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where the real fun starts. The city doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly

have a stellar record opposing development supported by its own staff before the OMB. Case in point: the 2011 decision by the OMB to expand the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s urban boundary by 850 hectares, over the objections of council and at the cost of hundreds of thousand of dollars in legal fees. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help that the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position was at odds with its planning staff. Nobody enjoys the ride on this merry-go-round â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not

the city, the residents and not the developers, even if they ultimately win their case at the OMB. Wasted time. Wasted money. Old Ottawa South is hoping to get off this topsy-turvy ride and create a proactive development review process. By working with developers instead of automatically pegging them as the enemy, both parties can avoid many of the conflicts that often end up in the laps of the OMB. Compromise is often required, and that can only come following good communication and intelligent analysis.


Dreaming of a better Sparks Street CHARLES GORDON Funny Town


parks Street looks pretty bedraggled these days. Mind you, some of that is just the way winter works on our city. The snow piles up, then it melts, revealing all of yesterdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s litter and dirt. But of course litter is not all thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bothering Sparks Street, a place that has never lived up to the high expectations placed on it when it opened as a pedestrian mall in 1966. Not that it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a pleasant place at times. In the warm weather, at lunch hour, hundreds of people enjoy the sun and the stroll and visiting with their friends. Tourists, down from Parliament Hill, grab a coffee or a souvenir. But, as many observers have noted over the years, the place is silent as a tomb after six oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;clock and more or less deserted on weekends. What happened? Well, the federal government happened. The government owns much of the real estate along Sparks and has not been helpful to merchants and would-be developers. At any given time, a number of merchants will have been displaced while Public Works renovates something or other. Even the most ardent planning advocate must be wondering if Sparks Street might have been better off with unbridled development. The other thing that happened was the Rideau Centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening in 1983. Not that Sparks Street was exactly thriving before that, but it thrived even less afterwards. Important merchants decamped for the new shopping centre and shoppers were attracted away from Sparks Street. After that grew the idea that Sparks Street needed fixing. Various plans were implement-

ed, most of them seeming to involve moving planters around. None of them worked. And the attempt to lure tourists to Sparks Street has had an unintended consequence. Now the complaint is that you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find anything on the street that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t aimed at tourists. The latest proposal, one not put forward as a solution but as something worth trying, is to put a zip line, a kind of glorified rope slide, somewhere on the mall to attract thrill-seekers. Well, it might do that. But if it succeeds it will just bring zip line enthusiasts to the mall. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll zip and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll go home, unless there is something else to attract their attention. The same goes for another perennial dream â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a Sparks Street casino. People will come to the casino, stay in it and go home. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing for Sparks Street in that. The idea is not just to attract thrill-seekers and tourists to Sparks Street, but to attract people who live here, people who could decide to come downtown to shop instead of going to their nearest mall, who might decide to eat on Sparks rather than in the ByWard Market, who might want to hang out on a street where there is no traffic. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to believe this is impossible to achieve, yet it has been impossible to achieve for 46 years. The only thing that will save Sparks Street is a permanent constituency â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in other words, more people living downtown. And should there be apartments where there were once dark offices, those who live there would flock to Sparks Street, if it was open at night and if there were stores and clubs and restaurants of quality. These in turn might attract people who live away from the core. In the meantime, new options will be presented for your consideration. Markets and zip lines and new logos and more planters. Whatever option is chosen, one of them should not be reopening Sparks Street to traffic. Great cities all over the world have created pedestrian-friendly areas and many of them work really well. Cities that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have such areas wish they did. We would too.

Middle-age woman desperately seeking a fitness regime


anuary is almost over, so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m starting to think about finding a new exercise regime. I like to wait until everyone else has given up on their New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolutions before committing to anything. As I approach official middle age, I realize that 2013 has to be the year I whip my pear-shaped, post-baby (times three) body into shape. And with all the articles about sitting being the latest epidemic â&#x20AC;&#x201C; sitting

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse is the new smoking and all that â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I realize that sitting and smoking simultaneously is probably not the best way to go. So Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking for renewal.

But as I look to define the new me â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the healthier, more fit me â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the almost middleaged me isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite sure where to begin. Besides the inherent

psychological difficulty in taking that first step, a big part of the problem is also that there are so many choices available. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m wary of committing to something financially before Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve taken careful time â&#x20AC;&#x201C; possibly over coffee and/or red wine, while sitting, of course â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to examine all the options. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great yoga studio, for example, spitting distance from my house with a $100-per-month unlimited yoga deal on now. It sounds great. And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure my bones and muscles would love me to stretch myself in new ways, never mind the mental boost it would likely provide. But all that stretching and breathing? I wonder if I would get bored after a week or two. If I spit in the other direction â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you know, from my back door â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fitness and dance studio with regular, fun aerobic classes like zumba. Everyone tells me this is a really enjoyable way to get your heart rate up. But at $16 per session, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s within my financial grasp. And then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this really cool place, nowhere near my house, in Gatineau, called PhysXtreme, where a former personal trainer helps whip you into shape by getting you to roll truck

tires around and climb fireman poles and such. I have a neighbour that goes for the 6 a.m. workout. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s super fit and does mud-racing and all kinds of cool things with her muscular, fit body. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d never know she has two kids and sits in an office all day. The idea of doing a non-traditional workout is extremely appealing, but I wonder how long it would be before I decided I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be bothered to drive my car to Gatineau twice a week before everyone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day begins. I was about to throw in the towel and give up the whole search when I discovered a new exercise regime that may have been designed for the almost middle-aged me. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s low-cost; it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t require me to go anywhere; I can do it as frequently as I want and I may not even have to sweat â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not for long, in any case. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called high-intensity interval training, or HIIT for short. A body of research around HIIT suggests that short periods of intense exercise may be as effective as lengthy workouts for some people. The kinesiology department at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ont., for example, had test subjects do 30-second power pedalling on exercise bikes, inter-

spersed with four minutes of relaxed pedalling. The pattern was repeated four to six times in a session for three sessions per week, a total of about 45 minutes of exercise over the course of the week. Similar studies conducted at universities across Britain and the United States have found this type of exercise may be as effective as a daily cardio workout in reducing insulin and glucose levels, improving metabolism and, in some cases, increasing muscle gain. The only downside to HIIT is that it could cause major physical injury and/or kill you. Study results are inconclusive. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also evidence that it may not benefit people of certain genetic makeup, so short of having blood tests conducted to determine results, it may be all for naught. Still, I think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to give it a try. As one friend pointed out the other day, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can commit to anything for 15 minutes, but thinking about doing something for an hour is really hard.â&#x20AC;? Yeah. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a big believer in baby steps. HIIT may just be my foray into extreme mud racing. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll let you know. In the meantime, I have to go upstairs and refill my coffee. It may be the only physical stimulation I get today and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only 6 a.m.

Retiring mission director helped ‘softened’ shelter Laura Mueller

EMC news - The Ottawa Mission was a completely different world when Diane Morrison first arrived as a volunteer in 1990. For one thing, it was a different world for Morrison, who had never encountered a panhandler or someone living on the streets during her upbringing in the Wakefield, Que., area. The male residents of the shelter hadn’t encountered someone like her, either. Morrison was the first woman to work at the shelter before she became its first female executive director. Now, 20 years later, the Beacon Hill resident has come a long way from the days when the shelter’s clients wouldn’t talk to her. Now, they see her as sort of a mother. On Jan. 9 as she prepared for her retirement the next day, Morrison reflected on how her influence has “softened” the Mission. Morrison was working as a teacher in Chelsea and volunteering at the shelter when she decided to take a leave of absence from her job to run the shelter full-time for a year, which then turned into two years. At that point, there were no other volunteers, no donations, no treatment programs for the clients and just 17 employees – all men.

“The board didn’t know what to do. They always had men. They used to call me ‘dear,’” Morrison said. “It’s softened the place a lot.” The men of the Mission wouldn’t give her the time of day when Morrison first began coming to scrub nicotinestained walls. They eventually warmed up, thanks in part to the loose cigarettes Morrison would stock her pockets with and dole out to the men. “They generally have a good relationship with their mom. They don’t always have a good relationship with their dad,” she said. “It’s kind of that whole nurturing role.” One client Morrison really connected with was a man named Timmy. He was one of the first men with AIDS to arrive at the shelter, and Morrison provided a bed and a chance for his friends to visit him as he was dying. “We had the funeral for him here,” Morrison said. That defining moment in 2002 inspired Morrison to set up the first hospice for the homeless with 14 beds. Morrison’s work completely changed the way shelters approached finances. In the 1990s, people simply didn’t donate money to places like the Mission, Morrison said. “We were really strapped,” she said. When she started out, the Mission had an annual in-


Beacon Hill resident Diane Morrison has retired after 20 years as the administrator and executive director of the Ottawa Mission. Morrison was the first female volunteer, employee and head at the shelter. come of $300,000. Now, the Mission takes in $8 million a year. The first foray into fundraising was a $13,000 project to replace the Waller Street

building’s roof. It leaked, so the shelter was unable to put any beds on the top floor. The roof had just been installed when a fire broke out on Christmas Eve of 1992.

Firefighters had to smash a hole through the new roof to extinguish the flames and 70 men staying in the shelter that Christmas made their way to a nearby diner for some warmth



and food. “It was kind of a defining moment,” Morrison said. The fire made the national news and people began to recognize the Mission name for the first time. A newspaper advertising campaign followed after a suggestion from a man from California. Money that began to trickle in allowed Morrison to create the first programs for Mission clients, such as addiction treatment programs. Under Morrison’s tutelage, the Mission became the first local shelter to reach out to police and to the neighbouring community. Now, officers can walk through the shelter and none of the clients blink an eye, Morrison said. Neighbours are similarly nonplussed. There was some tension when crack cocaine use exploded in Ottawa about seven years ago and community meetings helped smooth over relations, Morrison said. This Christmas, residents moving into nearby condo buildings took up a large collection for the Mission and set up a tree with ornaments of socks and underwear to donate to the men. “(One condo resident) said, ‘You’re our neighbours,’” Morrison said. “You’re our neighbours and we’re your neighbours and we have to learn to work together.”

Feedback, ideas sought for new recycling program Michelle Nash

Michelle Nash/Metroland

Maria McRae, River Ward councillor and environment committee chairwoman, right, said the city is looking for residents’ tips and reactions concerning the changes made to the recycling program last fall. McRae talks with a volunteer at an open house session at the Jim Durrell Complex on Jan. 19.

EMC news - Residents had a chance to weigh in on the city’s new waste-diversion program last week. The city held four recycling fairs at community centres in Barrhaven, Kanata, Orléans and Heron Gate Jan. 19. Residents were offered a pancake breakfast while they filled out a questionnaire as well as picked up some handouts concerning waste-management strategies.

Environment committee chairwoman, Maria McRae attended the fair in Heron Gate at the Jim Durrell Recreation Centre on Walkley Rd. “We are doing this because it’s interesting to see what is on people’s minds,” McRae said. “They (residents) have had three months to let us know how it has been going and we want to hear what they think about our long-term, wastemanagement strategies.” The questionnaire was available to fill out on IPads at

the fairs. McRae referred to herself as a champion when it comes to recycling and green bin use, and said as she continues to sort her garbage, which she has noticed the amount of packaging some food comes in. “At the end of two weeks, all I have is a garbage bag full of plastic packaging, it makes you think about what you are purchasing,” she said. Food packaging is one aspect the councillor said she is interested in receiving feedback. “I would like to see what the public has to say about packaging,” McRae said. “Should the city be dealing with businesses on packaging?” Aside from packaging concerns, other questions in the survey asked residents what they feel the city’s future role should be concerning waste management on a provincial and federal level, what residents feel is fair for services and households to pay concerning waste management provided by the city, the amount of waste a household provides and to what level residents are willing to commit regarding their own waste management and whether the city and businesses should form a partnership when it comes to waste management or whether businesses should take a more active role in waste management. McRae said the fair were held on the early Saturday morning at local community centres to reach out to early morning hockey and skating families. McRae added that at one point the entire front foyer of the centre was filled with hockey bags while families participated in the questionnaire and ate the pancakes. “It has been working out really well,” she said. Jarrett Chalmers and his two daughters, Landry and Chloe were one of those families who attended, in between hockey games. “One just played and we are waiting for the other to go on the ice,” Chalmers said. The three ate some pancakes and participated in the questionnaire as well as some of the kid-friendly activities. Chalmers said the information is important, but for his family, they have been on the reuse, reduce and recycle path for quite some time. “We really saw no change when the city changed the garbage pick up,” he said. “We recycle everything.” For residents who did not attend the recycling fair, the questionnaire is available online at

EMC news - Contract talks have broken off between unionized security staff at the OLG Slots facility at the Rideau Carleton Raceway and the employer. The 38 security employees have given their union a 100 per cent strike mandate and could be on strike as early as 12:01 a.m. on Feb. 7. The main issues include benefit parity and potential parking charges if the facility moves to a new location, according to the Ontario Public Service Employees Union. Greg McVeigh, staff negotiator for the union, said the employer’s position is “ridiculous and mean-spirited.” “We have already offered to take a wage freeze, which means employee wages will be frozen for a total five years,” McVeigh said in a statement. The largest issue is parking. Currently, there is no fee to park at the Rideau Carleton Raceway on Albion Road. However, if a new owner takes over operations and moves the facility downtown, parking could cost as much as $20 per day, a cost the employer wants employees to pay as well. Talks are set to resume on Feb. 6 with the assistance of a provincial mediator.

EMC community - Ever wondered what it’s like to raise eight kids or compete in ultimate fighting? Well the Ottawa Public Library can help you find out. As part of an initiative with the CBC, the library will offer human books for one day on Jan. 26. This is the second year the library has tried the program. Dorothy Jeffreys, co-ordinator of life-long learning with the library, said organizers have doubled the number of books available at the main library branch based on last year’s demand. “Last year we actually ran out of books, so we went from eight to 16 people, with six at the other branches,” she said. When a resident signs out a human book, they get 20 minutes of questions, and then the books get a 10-minute break. The program is part of a national human library project from Surrey, B.C. to St. John’s, NL. The organizing committee for the Ottawa project started looking for potential books in the summer.

Irish stew warms up a cold winter day EMC lifestyle - Lamb shanks are easy to use and delicious; if unavailable, use thick shoulder chops. It’s better if made a day or two ahead. Lamb is fresh, lean, tender, mild and easy to cook. It’s an excellent source of protein, iron and B vitamins. Because lamb isn’t marbled like beef, health-conscious cooks can easily trim off the fat. Preparation Time: 30 minutes Cooking Time: three hours Servings: 8 Ingredients


• 8 lamb shanks

• Salt and pepper • 125 ml (1/2 cup) all-purpose flour • 25 ml (2 tbsp) olive oil • 4 cloves garlic, minced • 5 ml (1 tsp) each dried thyme and rosemary • 2 bottles (341 mL each) stout-style beer • 750 ml (3 cups) beef broth • 50 ml (1/4 cup) butter • 45 ml (3 tbsp) packed brown sugar • 3 onions, cut into wedges • 3 each carrots and parsnips, cut into 2.5-cm (1-inch) pieces • 1/2 rutabaga, cut into 2.5-cm (1-inch) wedges • 50 ml (1/4 cup) chopped

fresh parsley Preparation

Season the lamb shanks with salt and pepper then coat with flour. In a large ovenproof casserole, heat half of the oil over mediumhigh heat. In batches, brown the lamb, adding more oil as needed. Remove to a plate. Stir in any remaining flour along with the garlic, thyme and rosemary. Stir over medium heat for one minute. Remove from heat and gradually stir in the beer. Bring to boil, scraping up any brown bits. Boil for five minutes, stirring often. Stir in 500 ml (2 cups) of broth. Return lamb to the pan and bring to boil. Cover and bake in 180 C (350 F) oven for 1.5 hours. Meanwhile in skillet, melt butter and sugar over medium heat. Stir in the vegetables and season with salt and pepper. Add remaining broth and bring to boil. Add to the lamb, cover and bake in 180 C (350 F) oven for another 1.25 hours or until lamb and vegetables are tender. Sprinkle with parsley to serve.

Libraries giving students exam boost

EMC community - With exams around the corner, the Ottawa public library wants teenagers to know it has their backs. Starting Jan. 18, all 33 library branches in the city will be offering high school students a quiet, welcoming place to study for their exams. The program started last June when the Carlingwood branch handed out granola bars to any students studying in the library. Librarian Courtney Mellor said the program was a success, so the library decided to launch a program that will see studying students receive a bookmark, highlighters and Post-it-notes to help them with their efforts. “We want anyone studying for exams to know that they can come here with their friends and feel comfortable,” Mellor said. Help encourage students to visit the library ahead of examinations, branches will be installing large “Good luck on

at home,” Théa said. When the girls heard about the highlighters and Postit-notes, they said it would definitely help them with their studies. “It is great news,” Théa said. Mellor said the key to the program is for all the branches to help students find a quiet place to sit, or if needed, help

them with any questions. “When it comes to research or questions concerning a book, we want them to feel more comfortable asking us for help and we think this program can help them feel that way,” she said. The program will be running for the duration of the public board’s exam period, which wraps up on Jan. 31.

Recently you may have noticed a new fee has appeared on your monthly bills. This past year, many companies started charging you two dollars per month to keep receiving your bill by mail. Whether it be a telephone, internet, cable, utility company or a bank, it seems everywhere you look, someone is jumping on the “pay-to-pay” bandwagon and sticking consumers with the cost of doing business. You may be a loyal customer for years who has always received a bill in the mail, but now you’re being charged extra for it. These fees force you to pay to receive the bill, so you can then pay that bill. They’re making you pay, to pay. It’s not something I consider a privilege. My opposition colleagues and I are calling on the Conservative Government and its agencies to take action to stop pay-to-pay fees from impacting Canadians. Not only is this a new cost for consumers, but it disproportionately affects certain segments of the population. Many seniors don’t have a computer of their own, or prefer to receive bills the way we always have: by mail. Low-income Canadians are also disproportionately affected because of lower rates of computer ownership and less access to computers. Two dollars a month may not seem like much to some, but if you are on a fixed income and have several bills coming in month to month, this fee can add up in a hurry. Others are understandably weary of online scams, and are uncomfortable making online payments While public libraries and other organizations provide much-needed computer access, many feel that the library is too public a place to be looking at or printing out bills or invoices. If these companies were serious about reducing the amount of paper in circulation they would have offered a discount for those who use online billing. Instead, they are penalizing those who cannot easily make the transition. This way, consumers would have the opportunity to save some money by switching, rather than getting dinged for doing what they have always been doing. But charging consumers for paper billing (an outlay that companies have been paying for as a part of the cost of doing business up until now) is an obvious cash-grab. It’s worth millions of dollars and it is largely Canadian seniors and low-income families who are being stuck with the bill. Your bills are high enough. Canadians should not be expected to pay extra for the bill itself. It is my hope that the government will agree and take action to stop this unfair practice.

Marguirite’s hair has school buzzing


omething was amiss at the Northcote School. First of all, Marguirite sneaked in like she had just been caught with her hand in the cookie jar. She usually made a grand entrance so that everyone could get a good look at whatever fancy outfit she had worn that day, but not only did she come in just as Miss Crosby rang the nine o’clock bell, she wore a wool toque and made no move to take it off, even though hats in school were strictly forbidden. She went right up to Miss Crosby’s desk and whispered in her ear. Miss Crosby looked at the hat, made a great sigh and nodded towards Marguirite’s desk. Every eye was on the young girl who didn’t have a friend in the entire school as she meekly took her seat. Well, if that didn’t just tie it -- she was going to be allowed to wear her hat in school. None of us would dare be so bold. Even the boys, the second they walked in the door, removed their caps and hung them on a hook at the back of the room. At recess Joyce, Velma and I got in a huddle to discuss this latest caper and none of us could imagine why Marguirite, who took such pride in her golden curls, would hide them under a toque. We all knew Marguirite,

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories who thought she was a dead ringer for Shirley Temple, got those curls from Ducharmes’ Beauty Parlour, and the golden hair right out of a bottle of dye from Ritza’s Drug Store in Renfrew. Even the boys at school noticed the toque. Cecil made some snide remarks and jabbed Emerson in the ribs, but that day that’s about all the attention they gave to Marguirite. There were more important things to do at recess, like pouring water from the pump on the small square of ice behind the schoolhouse. Miss Crosby rang the bell and recess was over. When we went inside, Marguirite’s head was still covered. Well, it was lunch time, and we all knew it wouldn’t be long before either Cecil or Emerson would get to the bottom of Marguirite’s hat. We were allowed to eat inside on winter days, but the second the last mouthful was down, we headed outside to play, either on the small patch of ice or on the excuse for a hill that the senior boys had built up by piling snow over

the wood fence at the back of the yard. Out of the corner of my eye, I could see Emerson and Cecil whispering and the look they both had on their faces spelled trouble. In one fell-swoop, they tore past Marguirite, with Cecil making a dive for the toque. They never stopped running until they reached the patch of ice at the back of the schoolhouse. Meanwhile, Marguirite looked like she had been shot with a gun. She stood frozen on the spot, and finally, we could all see why the toque never left her head. Right down the back, where there should have been a cascade of golden curls, was a streak of orange hair, and it was as straight as a stick. She clamped her hand over the spot and ran into the schoolhouse like someone possessed. Before our lunch hour was over, Miss Crosby rang the big brass bell and we knew Cecil and Emerson were in for it. They had no idea where they had dropped the toque.

EMC news - Carleton University students working to improve water quality in the St. Lawrence River recently got a bit of help from the Ontario government. A grant for $17,446 from the Great Lakes Guardian community fund will allow the university to pay for the planting native species and clearing of debris from Watts Creek, a tributary of the Ottawa River, which in turn flows into the St. Lawrence. This project will ultimately help improve and protect the water quality in the river system. “This project will engage student volunteers in solving real-world problems through hands-on restoration on Watts Creek,” said Dr. Steven J. Cook, associate professor of environmental science and biology for Carleton University. “We are thrilled to have support from the provincial

government for stream restoration activities that will have a meaningful impact on local aquatic ecosystems.” Ottawa-Centre MPP Yasir Naqvi said this grant is an example of one way people can help preserve Ontario’s lakes and rivers. There are more than 4,000 species of plants and wildlife that live in the Great Lakes Basin ecosystem, making it one of the richest biological regions in Canada. “I encourage everyone to help by joining local efforts to clean up our beaches, creeks, streams, rivers and lakes.” Naqiv said. The Great Lakes guardian community fund is administered by Ontario’s Ministry of the Environment. The grant helps community groups, nonprofit organizations and First Nations and Métis communities clean up and restore their rivers and lakes. It provides up to $25,000 to help groups protect the Great Lakes in the province.

My youngest brother Earl was sent out to look for it. The two culprits, without asking, knew what was coming. Without even being asked, they went up to Miss Crosby’s desk and held out a hand. She brought the strap down with a thunder that could be heard in Admaston. They boys never flinched. They got far worse fighting each other in the back yard. Earl got the toque, covered with snow, and handed it to Marguirite, who by this time was crying great running tears, wiping her eyes with one hand and covering the offending spot at the back of her head with the other. Marguirite always wanted everyone to believe she was born with golden hair and the curls to match. That day, everyone at school knew different, but the incident was soon forgotten and Marguirite’s mother must have made a fast trip into Renfrew, because when Marguirite walked into the classroom the next day, her head was a mass of golden curls. We had no idea how her mother got rid of the orange streak, but Joyce, Velma and I were pretty sure she had to cut it out with a pair of scissors. Joyce, the most kind hearted of the three of us thought we should all feel sorry for the girl, and maybe tell her so. But when we took a vote between the three of us, Joyce lost.

Search narrows for Ottawa’s first NASL coach Name for city’s new soccer team to be determined soon: president Eddie Rwema

EMC sports - The search for Ottawa’s North American Soccer League team coach could be a step closer, said Ottawa Fury owner and president John Pugh. The franchise will commence league play in 2014 as the major stadium reconstruction project at Frank Clair Stadium at Lansdowne Park is completed. “We do have a search in progress,” said Pugh, who is also a partner with NASL franchise owner Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group. “We have had some initial discussions with some coaches and we are now in the process of trying to get a short list of people that we would like to interview. “We are looking at a coach that is known to soccer fans, who has respect for his peers, players, fans management and so on.” Pugh said he hopes the team will have a coach that meets the brand of soccer they want for the club. “We have a certain brand of soccer that we like – which

is possession with a purpose that is exciting and good to watch. I think that is going to be one of the most important characteristics of the coach that we are looking for,” said Pugh. Canadian soccer supporters had a chance last month to submit their names of choice for the new Ottawa NASL franchise through a namethe-team contest. Pugh said they received more than 4,000 entries and added that it won’t be long before the decision on the name of the team is announced. “We are working with a branding company from Oregon to look at branding both the football team and the soccer team,” said Pugh. NEW LEADERSHIP, NEW DIRECTION Submitted

On Jan. 17, OSEG appointed Bernie Ashe as the new CEO to oversee the group’s operations, including sports franchises, entertainment business and Lansdowne Park operations.  “We are over excited to have been able to attract a man of his calibre. He’s got a

planned to hire a CEO with a track record of success in diverse industries, including sports and entertainment, and we’ve certainly found one in Bernie,” Greenberg said in a release shortly after the hir-

ing. “He also has deep roots in our community and a history of community service, which speaks to his integrity and our core values.  Bernie will be a great asset to our organization and our city.” OSEG partnered with the City of Ottawa to revitalize and manage Lansdowne Park, which will house a 24,000seat stadium for football, soccer and other outdoor events, a 9,800-seat arena, the historic Aberdeen Pavilion and Horticulture Building, the Ottawa Farmer’s Market, a new commercial district, an office tower, two condominium towers, townhomes and an urban park. OSEG will manage the facilities and own and operate a CFL football team, an NASL soccer team and the Ottawa 67’s OHL hockey team. “I’m thrilled and honoured to be part of such an incredible team of community leaders and to be involved in such an important community project,” said Ashe.  “The new Lansdowne will soon be one of Ottawa’s most inviting, year-round destinations for everyone in our region, and my role is to ensure that it remains vibrant and viable for decades to come.” From 1991 to 1997, Ashe served as executive vice-president and CEO of the Ottawa Senators.

Residents remain opposed as third proposal submitted

An evening to remember The Ottawa Muslim Association’s Mohamed Ghadban chokes up as he tells the story of the Ottawa Mosque, which his father and uncle worked to build the as group’s first mosque in Ottawa. The association, along with the Muslim Coordinating Council of the National Capital Region, held a reception honoring 27 Diamond Jubilee Award recipients on Jan. 19 at the mosque. Ghadban’s father, Hussein Ghadban, and uncle Mohammad Ghadban were honoured posthumously at the event.

The subsequent revision was also rejected by the association and councillor, though city staff did not take a position. The association has taken the official position to not support any building over eight storeys on the site. The site is designated as a ‘mixed-use centre’ under the city’s Official Plan, though currently it contains a light industrial use zoning that would have to be amended. The building as proposed would feature a total of 230 apartment units, 1,600 square metres of ground-floor commercial space and 1,500

Commission gives green light for equestrian proposal Jennifer McIntosh

EMC news - The National Capital Commission is placing its bets on a proposal to save a local equestrian park. The Wesley Clover Foundation, a charitable organization started by Kanata high tech mogul Terry Matthews, submitted a proposal to the commission in July 2012 after the city’s finance and economic development committee voted to stop running the Nepean National Equestrian Park on Corkstown Road. The commission announced on Jan. 17 it would be accepting the proposal following the conclusion of a requests for expressions of interest process. The two parties are now working to put a lease in place and get all the approvals necessary. A press release from the NCC said the proposal would require an amendment to the Greenbelt Master Plan to allow for the sports fields and forest school. The amendment was to be considered by their board of directors on Jan. 23 – after the EMC went

to press. Jean-Francois Trépanier, chief executive officer for the NCC said the plan is in line with the commission’s objectives. “The NCC is pleased to announce such an ambitious initiative for this Greenbelt facility,” he said in a press release. The park’s future as a cityoperated facility was questioned seven years ago and was given a reprieve with the direction that it needed to operate on a cost-recovery basis. Bay Coun. Mark Taylor said in July that national competitions offer economic benefit to the city, but two of the major shows that used to come to the park weren’t coming anymore. The facility needed a $1.2million upgrade and had operated at a loss for the last six years. The proposal from the foundation includes: • Trail riding program. • The Ian Millar Horsemanship Centre to attract high-level equestrian competitions. • Forest school for children

up to age six to learn about the outdoors. • An outdoor recreation area including, seven fullsize soccer pitches. • Space for non-equestrian events, including the National Capital Flower Show, the National Capital Harvest Festival and an annual curling competition modeled after the HOPE Volleyball Festival. The proposal also includes the continued operation of a therapeutic riding program – something residents and organizations spoke passionately about in pleas during a July 11 city council meeting. Kris Sherry, one of the organizers for Dressage at the Park, a competition held at the park every August, said the event was a fundraiser for the program. “We raise money for saddle cushions, tack and other supplies for the therapeutic riding program. If we aren’t raising money for that, I am not sure why we would hold the competition,” she said, following the news that the city would no longer be running the park. In July, Sherry said she’s not sure if the new owners would allow the competition to take place at the park and there is no other facility in the city that could accommodate more than two rings.




The National Capital Commission has given the green light to a proposal from high tech mogul Terry Matthews that would see upgrades to the Nepean National Equestrian Park, which had been threatened with closure. “We may be able to have a smaller competition somewhere else,” she said. Karen Sparks, executive director for the foundation,

said the proposal was aimed at promoting equestrianism in the city and making it accessible. “We are very excited to get

going,” she said. “The WCF is hoping to make a big impact in the community and this will be our flagship project.”

Canadian Ski Hall of Fame bound for Tremblant Museum finds new home after 40 years at Scott Street location Steph Willems

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The search for space is over. After announcing nearly two years ago that the Westboro-based Canadian Ski Hall of Fame and Museum was uprooting, staff have found an appropriate new home. It was announced on Jan. 17 that after a lengthy and painstaking vetting process,

the hall of fame and museum will be relocating to an expansive heritage building in the St. Jovite-Mont Tremblant region of western Quebec. The facility is expected to be a major tourist draw in a region known as having some of the best skiing in eastern North America. Previously housed in the Trailhead building on Scott Street, the Canadian Ski Hall of Fame and Museum has

existed in Ottawa since the early 1970s. Eventually, the expanding collection of artifacts contained within its walls became too large for the available space and in March, 2011, the facilityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board of directors announced they would seek a new location. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was hard to get walkthrough trafďŹ c and the parking wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that great,â&#x20AC;? said director Chris Edgell, who

spearheaded the search for a new location. The process included ďŹ nding supportive groups and reaching out to the ski community. The facilityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board released a model illustrating the key points any offer would have to satisfy, such as a fundraising strategy, dedicated building space, available resources and expertise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had support from the U.S. Ski Hall of Fame in our brainstorming,â&#x20AC;? said Edgell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After eight months we had identiďŹ ed ďŹ ve locations.â&#x20AC;? The St. Jovite-Mont Tremblant region was eventually selected as the winner, due

in part to the overwhelming support from the local community. Edgell said the signed petitions that had circulated through the region were â&#x20AC;&#x153;persuasiveâ&#x20AC;? and led him to craft a motion calling for the selection of that proposal over two other â&#x20AC;&#x153;extremely competitiveâ&#x20AC;? bids. Once the deal is ďŹ nalized, the process of bringing artifacts out of storage will commence. The new home of the hall of fame and museum will be in one of the original structures in the region, which was settled for its impressive forests and pristine lakes and is now a hotbed of skiing, golf and year-round recreation. Chateau Beauvallon boasts

5,000 square feet of recently upgraded ďŹ&#x201A;oor space and sits at an important crossroads in the region, just a couple of kilometres south of the ski resort. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ready to start taking artifacts in something like three months,â&#x20AC;? said Edgell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take some time to set up and create exhibits.â&#x20AC;? Edgell said he was exhausted after the nearly twoyear process, but is excited to see a new and improved hall of fame and museum take shape. He said he is certain the new facility will â&#x20AC;&#x153;be a great opportunity for ski museums across the countryâ&#x20AC;? through the sharing of skills and resources.

Funding available for recreation groups

EMC sports - Sports and recreation groups are now able to apply for 2013-14 Ontario Sport and Recreation Communities Fund grants. The fund is available for local organizations to run programs that increase participation in sport and recreation, educate about physical activity and provide training

in areas like coaching or volunteer development. The statement of interest deadline for funding is Feb. 6 and the application deadline is March 19. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Participation in sport, recreation and physical activity helps build strong communities in Ontario,â&#x20AC;? said Michael Chan, Ontario Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport in a press release.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Getting involved in these activities â&#x20AC;&#x201D; whether as a participant, competitor, coach, ofďŹ cial or volunteer â&#x20AC;&#x201D; encourages social interaction, contributing to a greater sense of community identity and social cohesion,â&#x20AC;? The fund replaces the Healthy Communities Fund. The application for funding is available at

Airport Parkway Pedestrian and Cycling Bridge – January 2013 Progress Report After a short break over the holidays, construction of the Airport Parkway Pedestrian and Cycling Bridge is progressing well.


West Ottawa picks up tournament title The West Ottawa Black Magic Under-9 ringette team captured first place in a recent tournament in Whitby during the weekend of Jan. 11 to 13. The team beat Arnprior by a score of 7-2 and defeated Oshawa by a score of 8-0. The girls beat the home Whitby team 10-4 before winning the championship on Sunday in a game against Arnprior.

Work over the last few months included the placement of scaffolding, formwork and falsework for the upper half of the tower, completion of the east pathway connection, hot mix paving of the pathway, and the installation of a new access door and windows at the South Keys Transit Station. Next steps include resuming formwork, falsework and reinforcing steel on the upper tower, which needs to be in place before the concrete is poured. The contractor will also begin constructing the forming and falsework for the main deck crossing the Airport Parkway. For safety reasons, the contractor is installing temporary concrete barriers on the Parkway when necessary. Please use caution when driving in this area. For the next few months, there will be periods of time when traffic on the Airport Parkway is heavily impacted. The City and the contractor will make every effort to ensure that there is minimal disruption in traffic flow during this phase. The City will provide Public Service Announcements in advance of this work taking place and will post regular updates at You can also visit my website at and follow me on Twitter at for updates. The City has installed digital message boards along the Airport Parkway near the construction site as well. I continue to closely monitor progress on this project to ensure that this connection is built safely and to the highest quality standards. Thank you for your patience and consideration during construction.

Future guide dogs look for happy homes Emma Jackson

EMC news - If the goal is to socialize Franklin the puppy to become a calm, well-behaved guide dog, there’s no better place for it than Donna Martin’s home. Between Cody the cockatoo’s squawks for attention, Tutu the parrot’s cheeky hellos, Poppy canary’s chirping and the yips and yaps of dog duo Pepper and Buddy, Franklin is surrounded by furry and feathered friends - and their noise - all day long. In Martin’s Manotick home, a certain level of chaos and noise is expected “when you live in a zoo,” she said. But fostering the eight-weekold yellow Labrador retriever brought a whole new level of commitment on Jan. 11. “It is a lot of work,” she said. “If anyone has had a baby, an infant, you’ll know exactly what it’s like. When he’s awake, you’re spending your time teaching him.” Despite her menagerie, Martin seems to have plenty of love to go around. Taking Franklin out for a bathroom break after lunch, her encouraging calls of “Good getting busy!” fill the wooded back-

yard. Martin is one of many foster parents raising puppies to become guide dogs for people with visual impairments. A new litter of retrievers was born in November, and the Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind in Manotick is looking for foster homes in eastern Ontario to raise the puppies for up to 18 months. Foster families are required to train the dogs using specific commands so they are consistently prepared for formal guide dog training, and to help the dog become a social, welladapted dog. “They’re raising a good dog,” said Guide Dogs spokesperson Steven Doucette. Doucette said the foster home job is not for everyone. At least one person in the household must have the time to be with the puppy virtually 24 hours a day and everyone must commit to the training regimen the organization requires. “Some families look at it as a perfect volunteer job and some see it as a trial run,” Doucette said. “Others do it really for the cause.” Martin, without question, does it for the cause. She has wanted to foster a guide dog

puppy for a long time, but couldn’t because the organization required a fenced-in back yard, she said. As soon as she heard the restriction was lifted, she put her name on the foster parent list. Her compassion for people with visual impairments was instilled in her at an early age, by a father who wore “coke bottle glasses” and was extremely myopic. “He stressed the importance of eyes to me,” Martin said. As a teen, she used to close her eyes and walk through the house to see what it would feel like to be blind. A week into fostering Franklin, Martin knows it will be hard to give him up when he leaves for training school. “I know I’m going to be very sad,” she said. “I’m going to become attached. I know I am. But he’s not my dog.” Knowing you’ll have to give the dog up at the end of the foster period doesn’t necessarily make it easier, Doucette agreed. “It’s still going to be a little bit heartbreaking and emotional,” he said. “A lot of people will compare it to sending a child off to school, raising kids and knowing they’ll eventually leave the house.”

Franklin the yellow Labrador retriever cuddles with his foster mom, Donna Martin, at her home in Manotick. The eight-week-old puppy will live with Martin for 18 months before heading off for guide dog training. Nevertheless, Doucette said the foster program can be very rewarding for those who are accepted to take a puppy. Guide Dog trainers will visit at least once a month to check on the puppy’s progress. Foster families require access to a vehicle for veterinary appointments and training sessions, but all food and veterinary ex-

penses are covered.  Of course, support staff is on hand at the Manotick-based Guide Dog headquarters for advice as well. “They give you a fantastic amount of support,” Martin said. And despite the anguish of the eventual goodbye, Martin said she’ll feel happy knowing

Pet Adoptions


Duke is a neutered male, tricolour, Blue Tick and Walker Hound mix. The staff at the Ottawa Humane Society think he is about 5 years old. Duke was brought it to the OHS as a stray, and has been a beloved resident for just over 5 months now. He is patiently waiting for his forever home. Duke is a laid back fella, just looking for some extra attention from people who love him. He loves to discover new things by going on long walks, and would love a bed to call his own after his regular outings. He’s a little stubborn, and wants things done his way so a house with kids over the age of 8 would be better for him. Duke is available as a ‘Special Needs’ adoption due to possible food allergies, which may need some veterinary guidance to sort out.

Time to make a grooming appointment

Why doesn’t the Ottawa Humane Society (OHS) give away dogs, cats, and other pets for free? At first this may seem like a great idea: free pets means more families will be able to afford a homeless animal. However, having a pet costs money. A free kitten from a friend of a friend is hard to resist. However, that kitten needs to be health checked by your veterinarian, dewormed, vaccinated, and spayed. A free puppy from the newspaper or an online ad needs the same. How much are you really saving? The year one initial costs sterilization, vaccination, deworming, etc. will cost more than $600 for a kitten, plus approximately $900 in yearly ongoing costs that include food, litter, grooming and boarding. Sadly, many people are uninformed of these costs and many “free” animals end up being surrendered to the humane society. In fact, more than 7,000 cats end up at the Ottawa Humane Society every year. Thirty-five percent of them are believed to have been acquired either from a friend or relative or from some form of “free to good home.” At the OHS, a health check, initial deworming and vaccination, sterilization (spay or neuter) a permanent microchip identification and pet insurance for 6 weeks is included in the dog and cat

The average cost of canine sterilization at a vet clinic is $350.00 while feline sterilization costs and average of $250.00. In the end, adopting a pet from the OHS offers great savings! The OHS adoption prices are: $290 for dogs older than six months, $350 for puppies and small breeds; $170 for cats older than six months, $225 for kittens. It’s the best deal around! OHS dogs receive a temperament assessment prior to being placed for adoption. This translates into much needed information about the dog in order to make the best possible match between the potential adopter and the canine, for a successful and permanent placement. All animals receive a routine health check by OHS veterinary staff prior to adoption. The first vaccination is given and if the animal is within our system for any extended period of time, they will receive a booster (second vaccination). All animals are implanted with a microchip (a permanent form of identification) prior to being adopted, and are automatically enrolled with pet insurance for six weeks of free coverage, effective 48 hours post-adoption.

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

My name is Jasmine, and I am a 7 month old parti poodle, with our other, much older standard poodle Riley to play with whenever. My owners love me very much it seems as they’ve taught me to sit, and whenever I do they hand out tasty rewards. I love to sit! They are so warm, and when they are sitting I lean against them and on their socks, and we all get warm. Going for walks in Britannia Village is a bark and a hoot with so many other dogs and their owners to sniff and greet. My favourite thing to do is leaping through the snow in our big back yard.

Franklin is heading off to do good work. “I’m going to put my emotions and effort into making sure he’s socialized so I can send him off and know he’ll be helping somebody.” For more information, contact Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind at info@guidedogs. ca or 613-692-7777.
