EMC news - A partnership between a community health organization and a citywide housing provider brought Carlington residents out to discuss a future development on Jan. 28. The Carlington Community Health Centre, which provides a wide range of health services out of its 900 Merivale Rd. location, has proposed an expansion of its facility and the creation of onsite seniors housing with its partner, Ottawa Community Housing. Up to 70 units housing lowto-moderate income seniors living with significant health needs would be built atop a ground-floor medical facility behind the health centre’s existing building, offering expanded services for both seniors and young people alike.

The existing building would be relegated to house administrative functions. Michael Birmingham, executive director of the health centre, said the proposed development would serve a growing demographic of senior citizens as well as offering local health services within the community – a move that would take pressure off existing hospitals and allow seniors to live independently. He estimates the cost of the building at $18 to $20 million, though he stressed these are early estimates and the planning process will be a long one. “This is the beginning of a discussion – nothing is finalized at this time,” said Birmingham during a public pre-consultation hosted by the Carlington Community Association at the Alexander Community Centre.

nations to food banks and the purchase of gift certificates as prizes for community events. “Obviously that’s an area of concern to councillors because that’s part of our role – to promote events and showcase our communities,” said Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley. “That said, there are examples, shall we say, where someone may get the wrong perception of what’s going on … I don’t believe we should be handling all the money for

$234,000 in 2012 to spend on office supplies and staffing, as well as community events, donations and sponsorships. “As of right now, there is no definition as to how our office money should be spent,” said Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt. Bob Brocklebank of the Federation of Citizens Associations said anything to make council more transparent is a good thing, but a lack of flexibility in this case could be detrimental to community involvement.

EMC news - City councillors have begun to warn community groups that their ability to donate money from their office budgets to community events may soon be limited. There is no firm proposal yet, but councillors say Mayor Jim Watson is proposing a cap on how much of their office budget councillors are allowed to donate to commu-

nity causes, as well as limits on how involved municipal elected officials can be in the financial side of community events. Donations and sponsorships are allowed under the current rules and the online office expense disclosure forms include a section for councillors to list the amount of donations they doled out. Typical donations include things like membership to the local legion branch, sponsorship of a winter carnival, do-

the events.” Hubley rarely gives donations from his office budget, he said, because he doesn’t want his residents to “get the wrong impression” of the way he spends their tax dollars on their behalf. The policy would be part of a code of conduct that’s being developed to build on the work of the city’s new integrity commissioner; efforts that include the lobbyist registry. The proposal would put more parameters around how that office budget could be spent. Each councillor received

335 Roosevelt Ave. saga enters new phase Steph Willems

steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - The lengthy, contentious saga of the 335 Roosevelt Ave. condo proposal is not yet over. A request from Urban Uniform Developments to the Ontario Municipal Board asking for a review of a previous decision was approved on Jan. 17. That decision, rendered June 12, 2012, followed an appeal by a group of Westboro neighbours who took issue with the city’s 2011 decision to grant a site rezoning, thus allowing

the developer to proceed with construction of 14- and 16storey towers overlooking the Transitway trench. Residents Gay Stinson, Christopher Zurcher and Tony Michel, who live near the site, appealed the rezoning on the grounds it was in violation of the city’s own Official Plan and a community design plan dating back to 2007, both of which call for buildings of four to six storeys in height for that particular site. The developer argued that two taller, slimmer buildings would create less of a barrier to sunlight and movement and

ing both a rezoning and Official Plan Amendment. The recent decision approving the review of the earlier ruling also stems from a violation of procedure. In this case, Uniform Urban Developments argued that the OMB had violated “rules of natural justice and procedural fairness” by rendering a decision without hearing their case. Given the circumstances, J.V. Zuidema, OMB vicechair, ruled that a motion for review should be granted, despite opposition from the original appellants.

offer more options for green space. “This case is about Official Plans meaning what they say,” read the introduction to the first OMB appeal decision, which ruled that the developer should have to stick to the building height outlined in the Official Plan, as there was no plan amendment. Many arguments were made from the appellants about the physical affect the proposed towers would have on surrounding properties, but the OMB decision was rooted in procedure violation on the part of the city, in not includ-

As City Council enters its third year we can look back on years one and two and be proud of what we have accomplished. One file where I am particularly proud is the work we have done to make Ottawa a greener city. Some highlights include: • After years of fits and starts we signed the agreement that will bring Light Rail Transit (LRT) to Ottawa and reduce the number of cars and buses on the road. • This $2.1 billion project will make it easier to get around our growing city and when completed the redesigned transit system will save the City up to $100 million in annual operating costs, while eventually reducing our carbon emissions by some 94,000 tonnes. • We have implemented weekly green bin collection and biweekly garbage collection, which means 20% fewer collection vehicles on the road and savings of $10 million per year. • While it is still early in the program, initial results for November and December of 2012 show a significant increase in diversion rates since the start of bi-weekly collection. • We have also distributed 7,000 new green bins to residences in the rural areas of Ottawa, making it a truly city-wide program.

Community awaits Dark plan as feds look to offload land asset those surplus properties – if used to their full extent – could be to the community. “The key thing is to include them in our current plans so it is clear what we want to develop,� said Powell. “It’s an opportunity to be creative. If we can integrate it into the community, that’s a huge benefit. We don’t want renewal to mean bulldozing everything that’s there.� Powell envisions shops, eateries, services and some measure of residential development in that block adding liveliness to the neighborhood, creating a draw to pull Ottawa residents in while

providing amenities to those living nearby. While the Dark plan and whatever revisions it may still go through will undoubtedly shape the neighbourhood in years to come, many developments have already been approved in the area and the population is poised to rise sharply. The Preston-Carling community and those nearby currently have a serious lack of basic grocery infrastructure - not even an all-night convenience store -- and Powell said he hopes a developer takes notice and makes this crucial amenity a reality.

A full block of mostly empty federal buildings in the Carling-Preston neighbourhood will soon be transferred to a lands holding company for eventual redevelopment.

EMC news - Improve the neighbourhood for new and existing residents, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mess with what already works - that was the mindset going into at Feb. 5 meeting where the Carling-Preston development plan was unveiled. The meeting, which occurred after the Ottawa West EMC went to print, was to be the culmination of a planning process initiated by the city with the help of Torontobased urban design consultant George Dark. That process included a collaborative design session held in late 2011 and the release of an early vision of the plan on Jan. 11 to mixed feedback. In the days since the early vision was revealed, residents have wondered how their response to the vision might have affected the final product. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our concern has always been making sure weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting the design for the community right,â&#x20AC;? said Michael Powell, president of the Dalhousie Community Association. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice there will finally be a proper public meeting, which has been a long time coming.â&#x20AC;? Powell said the collaborative design session took place during business hours on a weekday, limiting the possible community input to the plan. His main concern, one echoed by many others, is to keep the low-rise residential feel on streets stemming from Preston Street both east and west, especially those between Beech Street and Carling Avenue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the draft recommendations we saw these short streets that would see the addition of a new street along the O-Train corridor with buildings of up to nine storeys,â&#x20AC;? said Powell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That area is now zoned for four storeys

and I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a more appropriate height. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not uncomfortable with the community changing, and how it will change over time â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we approve of height in appropriate areas.â&#x20AC;? Given that the plan is supposed to be transit-centric, Powell sees adding more roads to the community as encouraging private vehicle use, not discouraging it. The recent news that Natural Resources Canada is in talks to offload its older properties in the area to Canada Lands Corp. for eventual reuse and re-development adds a new angle to the community plan. The former energy, mines and resources buildings contained within the block bordered by Orangeville, Booth, Norman and Rochester streets are all part of this pending agreement. Built between the late 1920s and early 1950s to house the federal governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scientific expansion, the low-rise brick structures are designated as heritage buildings in the Canadian register of historic places and many feel that with adaptive re-use they could form a unique, amenities-filled addition to the evolving neighbourhood. When contacted about the buildingsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; status and handover timeline, a representative for Natural Resources Canada stated, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The buildings are almost 100 per cent vacant, with a small remainder of activities being absorbed into NRCanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s existing (National Capital Region) inventory over the coming months. The property was declared surplus to program requirements in 2011 and may be transferred to (Canada Lands Corp.) by 2014.â&#x20AC;? While his main focus is on the roadway and height recommendations that will be outlined in the Dark plan, Powell is aware of what an

Egli replaces veteran Wilkinson as committee lead Key transportation role shuffled during council governance review Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC - Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Egli will become the second first-term councillor to lead a standing committee. Egli is set to take the lead on transportation issues after Mayor Jim Watson indicated his preferences to shuffle councillorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; responsibilities in a Jan. 29 memo to council â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the result of a mid-term governance review. Egli will replace Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson, who has served as transportation committee chairwoman for the first two years of councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s term. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good fit at the end of the day for everybody,â&#x20AC;? Egli said. Egli said it will be a big year for transportation issues because the city is updating its transportation master plan. His view is that the city needs to accommodate the needs of all road users. While providing access to transit and cycling facilities is important, there will always be areas of the city where a private vehicle is required in order to get around, he said.

Egli likened the shuffle to a chess board. Since there is a need for Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches to take on a heavier workload as deputy mayor (and as a father to new twins), his position as chairman of the Ottawa Community Housing board was up for grabs. Watson suggested it might be a good fit for Wilkinson, who has worked extensively on community housing issues in the past. That also freed up the transportation committee chair, giving another rookie councillor a chance to take on a leadership role. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bit of succession planning for the next term of council,â&#x20AC;? Wilkinson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(The mayor) wanted an opportunity for the newer councillors to be more involved.â&#x20AC;? The veteran councillor didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t request to step down from her role as transportation committee chairwoman, which has seen her become very active in transportation initiatives such as the recently completed Downtown Moves study. She agreed to vacate the position, but only if she could remain a member of the committee.

Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Egli will take over Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson as chairman for the transportation committee. Despite suggesting in the past that this would be her last term on council, Wilkinson said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still considering whether to run again in 2014. Her fellow Kanata councillor, Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley, will step into the role of vice chairman of the transportation committee, a position previously held by OrlĂŠans Coun. Bob Monette. Monette will instead sit as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;councillor at largeâ&#x20AC;? on the finance and economic development committee, which includes all committee chairs as well as Rideau-Rockcliffe Coun. Peter Clark. Bay Coun. Mark Taylor was the only first-time coun-

cillor appointed as a committee chairman at the beginning of councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s term and he will continue as chairman of the community and protective services committee. Egli will no longer sit on the environment committee, but he is adding the board of health to his roster. He and Stittsville Coun. Shad Qadri will replace Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder and River Coun. Maria McRae on that board. Another first-term councillor, Beacon Hill-Cyrville Coun. Tim Tierney was added to two committees: community and protective services (replacing Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs) and the

planning committee (replacing Taylor). Hobbs will move to the transit commission, where she will boost its urban representation; previously, the only non-suburban and non-rural councillor on the commission was Tierney. The governance report also suggests the city should hire a temporary full-time worker to manage the schedules of the two deputy mayors: Desroches and West-Carleton Coun. Eli El-Chantiry. The report also recommends a review or change to governance models for some of the armâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s-lengths bodies the city oversees, including

the Cumberland Heritage Village Museum, the Nepean Museum and Fairfields historic site, the Ottawa Municipal Campground and Pine View Municipal Golf Course. It also proposes increasing the salaries of councillors and the mayor, which have been frozen since 2010. The clerkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t directly consult council members on the process because council members said they were uncomfortable with setting their own salaries, so the clerkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office is recommending the same annual cost-of-living adjustments that city managers receive.

Certainty name of game as Liveable Ottawa launches Spot rezonings a concern for areas facing numerous new developments Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - The city is asking for residents’ help tackling 12 planning issues as it looks to build a “liveable” city in the future. The city launched its massive master planning review on Jan. 29 with two meetings at city hall that outlined challenges – and ideas – to create a Liveable Ottawa. “Certainty” was the name of the game when it came to zoning, with both the mayor and planning committee chairman Coun. Peter Hume repeatedly insisting that the review will result in a zoning bylaw that matches and implements the policies outlined in the Official Plan. “Providing certainty for the community and the development industry is a theme you’ve heard me talking about a lot in the past year,” Hume said. “Our refreshed Official Plan will be more prescriptive than ever before in terms of where the vision for height and density is in this city.

… (Planning manager John) Moser and his staff are committed to bringing forward the necessary zoning bylaws in 2014 that will implement these height permissions such that there is absolute certainty for all and fewer disparities between the Official Plan and the zoning bylaw.” It’s something community associations have been clamoring for. Essentially, it would mean that the rules for what can be built on parcels of land across the city and what sorts of uses those properties can feature would match the goals and larger vision for the city that’s set out in its Official Plan. Right now, there is so much discrepancy between the ideals in the Official Plan and the actual rules governing the zoning that the leeway often leads to spot rezoning of properties that community members often feel aren’t in line with the goals the city has set out for itself. “We are getting better at smart growth and we are doing it together (with develop-

ers), but there is still more to do,” Watson said. He said public interest and participation in the process is essential. “We want to ensure Ottawa remains a vibrant, dynamic and affordable city for years to come,” Watson said, adding that the review will help “unlock the potential of the city.” Affordability will be a fundamental part of that, the mayor said. The city only has limited means to pay for new facilities that population growth demands. Interested citizens can find detailed information online at ottawa.ca/liveableottawa. There, people can fill out an online survey and sign up for alerts about future public meetings. Updating the entire suite of master plans in one go is a rare opportunity that will help the city ensure the plans all work together towards common goals, the mayor said. “For the first time in many years, the stars are aligned at the same time,” he said. Some things you won’t see changed are policies for environmental protection, affordable housing or built heritage, Hume said. For the most part, those policies are working well so the city

The draft updates to the Official Plan should be publically available by June, and the draft master plans for transportation, cycling, pedestrians and infrastructure should be released by October.

The availability and use of councillors’ office-budget funds varies widely across the different wards, but that money is often used to rent space for community events and more importantly, community meetings, Brocklebank said. Allowing flexibility in how councillors spend their allotment means there are more funds available to encourage community engagement, Brocklebank said, adding he doesn’t think councillors should be proud if they make a point of avoiding donations. “It is on the public consultation side that I am concerned about the limitations that this might bring,” Brocklebank said.

“Sometimes you go out and fix problems that don’t exist.” Changing a practice that residents support and no one is complaining about doesn’t make much sense, Moffatt said. He keeps his own “mental cap” on spending; he won’t give out more than $10,000 of his office budget per year to community causes. Supporting community causes with tax dollars collected from citizens makes sense, Moffatt said. The councillor said he tends not to organize or run community events because there is a large number of active groups in his ward. Instead, he contributes money to rent space or back community-led events in other ways. “I like to be able to support them so that they can do com-

munity-oriented events that build community spirit and help bring the community together,” he said. “That’s what our job is … to support our communities and make our communities grow.” Watson’s office budget is $778,000, but Hubley said the mayor’s budget wasn’t proposed to be subject to the same rules. That concerned the Kanata South councillor, who said any policy should apply equally to all members of council, including the mayor. Watson’s press secretary, Ryan Kennery, said in an email it would be premature for the mayor to discuss the proposal. The policy proposal is expected to be announced in March, Kennery said.

Ottawa proposes ideas for building a sustainable city

NEIGHBOURHOOD DESIGN

The city is proposing to create a new generation of main streets, called “streets in transition.” Hume said it would cover streets that don’t quite have the characteristics of a main street, but could still use a boost in density, height and the type of uses that are permitted along them. He suggested the city is looking at boosting heights to up to six storeys along transitional streets such as Baseline Road and Bronson, Fisher, Holland and Woodroffe avenues. One of the questions the city is asking is whether it needs to create “design priority areas” – areas where city staff and the city’s urban design review panel should be paying extra attention to design. The city wants to encourage pedestrian-friendly smallscale commerce in some areas by designating sections of streets as new main streets. Parts of Walkley, Innes and Ogilvie roads and St. Laurent Boulevard are on the list for consideration. Hume alluded to new policies that will guide what’s included in future community design plans, including building heights, to give “certainty” to communities.

SKYSCRAPERS

Forty storeys will be the new 20 storeys when it comes to the tall buildings of Ottawa’s future, Hume said, and the city needs to prepare for that. “As our city approaches the one million population mark and Ottawa comes of age, the market and urban design are bringing a new type of built form,” Hume said. “This doesn’t mean that we want to have a city of skyscrapers, but we need to prepare the parameters of where we want this development.” Buildings of 31 storeys or more would only be permitted in areas identified in the new Official Plan. Those locations would be based on proximity to transit, compatibility and design criteria. Hume said buildings of 20 storeys or more would only be

permitted on lands that were established in a community design plan or a transit-oriented development study. Whether they are proposed to be 40 storeys or four storeys, building height is a major point of contention in communities. The city is hoping to put some of that strife to rest by setting a new maximum height of 10 to 19 storeys in areas designated as mixed-use centres and employment lands that are immediately beside rapid-transit stations (Transitway and light rail) and up to nine storeys elsewhere. For the rest of the urban area, the city is proposing that height limits remain the status quo. TRANSPORTATION

The city will be reviewing the criteria it uses to decide when to widen roads, Hume said. Transportation planner Colin Simpson expanded on that in the evening meeting. The suggested approach is to switch from using a “peak hour” of the highest morning commute traffic to judge the street’s capacity, and use a more averaged peak period of perhaps three hours. That subtle change would mean a reduction of about 15 per cent in road expansions or the construction of new roads, Simpson said. It’s a change aimed at saving money. Ottawa has a backlog of roads that are crumbling and need resurfacing – about 25 per cent of the city’s roads need to be paved. Constricting how many roads are widened will lead to more traffic congestion, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing depending on where it is, Simpson said. Traffic congestion is a motivator to get people out of private vehicles and onto the bus or a bike. Cycling and waking were also emphasized in comments

made by Simpson in the evening and Hume in the morning. Hume described a need to “build on the momentum” of a 40 per cent increase in cycling trips over the past five years, as shown in the recently released origin-destination study. That will include mapping out key cross-town bikeway routes, Hume said, and adding new bicycling routes to large employment centres and institutions such as universities or hospitals that are outside the core. A winter cycling network is also proposed. The city hopes to identify routes that would be well-maintained in the winter to encourage yearround cycling. For pedestrians, there is a need to clarify when the city wants to include sidewalks on one or both sides of the street in suburban developments. Improvements to winter maintenance standards for sidewalks were also suggested. Hume also floated the idea of setting maximum intersection and road widths to “create less cavernous and more people-friendly intersections.”

subdivisions permanent. The large-lot subdivisions in the rural area detract from making villages viable as complete communities, Hume said. To do that, the city is proposing to concentrate most development within the three large villages – Richmond, Greely and Manotick – to ensure they have a mix of housing types and businesses. The city wants to examine servicing options that would allow nine mid-sized villages, including Carp, Cumberland, Metcalfe, Vars and North Gower, to expand in the future, but for now, their boundaries are proposed to remain the same. The remaining small villages are proposed to have their boundaries remain the same until they are built out, Hume said.

transit hubs, and that work will continue as part of the Official Plan update. Lees, Hurdman and Blair stations are next on the list for development studies. But the future light-rail line isn’t the only transit mode the city will focus on. Pinecrest, South Keys/Greenboro and the Riverside South community core will also be the focus of development studies with a view towards encouraging density. RURAL DEVELOPMENT

Ottawa’s countryside comprises 90 per cent of its land area, and the city wants to ensure development in the rural areas is sustainable. For one thing, the city is proposing to make the moratorium on country estate lot

TRANSIT-ORIENTED DEVELOPMENT R0011892383_0207

EMC news - The city is proposing 14 new policy ideas or changes to guide the discussion about creating a Liveable Ottawa for the Official Plan and master plan review. Planning committee chairman Coun. Peter Hume, Mayor Jim Watson and several city planners fleshed out the ideas during two open-house launch events on Jan. 29. The full proposals and a survey can be found on ottawa.ca/liveableottawa, but here are some highlights:

However, the picture for developers is less clear, Hume said. The city needs to clarify its expectations when it comes to planning policies, especially for areas that don’t have secondary or community design plans. Michelle Taggart of Taggart Investments, a local developer, spoke at the morning open house on Jan. 29 to tell the city that building height limits are a mistake. “It takes a lot of creativity and flexibility,” she said. Without that flexibility, the city will get a lot of short, fat, ugly buildings that don’t offer connections or pathways through blocks. Taggart said the city needs to look at a more “design-centric certainty.” Hume countered that opinion, saying the flexibility the development industry wants creates “massive conflict” with communities. “If there is a better way for us to avoid that, the development industry haven’t come forward with one,” he said.

The city has already embarked on planning for intensified development around

Limit councillorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; access to public purse

A

policy to limit councillorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ability to dole out money to community groups is a welcome proposal coming out of the mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office. Currently, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just an idea being floated around the council table by Mayor Jim Watson, but a policy is expected to be introduced sometime in March. At least one city councillor is already warning community groups in his ward that

the policy would limit their ability to donate money from their office budget to support community events. On the face of it, the policy sounds negative, resulting in less funding for the dozens of grassroots organizations that provide unpaid support services throughout the city. But limiting a councillorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spending powers doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily mean the money wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be spent where itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needed. Just whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing the

spending â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as it stands, a councillor can take a chunk of money from their office budget â&#x20AC;&#x201C; funds provided by taxpayers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to arbitrarily dole out cash to groups of their choosing. Typical donations include things like membership to the local legion branch, sponsorship of a winter carnival, donations to food banks and the purchase of gift certificates as prizes for community events. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get us wrong. We are in no way suggesting

that a donation to the local food bank is a bad idea; we are simply questioning the optics of how the money is spent and how the decision is made. Giving councillors arbitrary access to the public purse offers the opportunity for inequalities in support given to groups and associations from ward to ward. One councillor may choose to spend $10,000 while another may limit their donations to less than $2,000.

We arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t questioning the morals or ethics of individual councillors, simply the equity of an arbitrary system that invites unfair distribution of funds and the use of public money to in effect campaign for re-election. True, part of a councillorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role is to promote events and showcase communities, but, as Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley suggests, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe we should be handling the money for the events.â&#x20AC;? Hubley said he rarely gives donations from his office budget because he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to give the wrong impression. We couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree more

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the obvious impression is that the receiver of the money owes the sender gratitude, which they may choose to repay in the form of support during the next election. Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal would be part of a code of conduct thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being developed to build on the work of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new integrity commissioner, such as the lobbyist registry. We suggest the city create a new mechanism to provide support for community groups, such as giving the responsibility to a department. Council could always allow councillors to highlight events and community groups in need of support.

After Dalton, a culture war? CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

I

tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to take a little getting used to not having the premier of Ontario living in our town. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of advantages to it, not least of which is having someone at Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Park who knows Ottawa exists. That hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always been the case. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pretty big city, Ottawa, but a bit far from Toronto. The reviews on Dalton McGuintyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tenure as premier have been mixed. The consensus seems to be that he did quite well, but his last few months didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do him credit. In Ottawa we knew him as sort of a clunky guy, not a smooth politician, but a person we could be comfortable with. That might explain how he got elected six times as an MPP, three times as premier. McGuintyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last election was a minority win, which means the opposition parties are looking forward with some relish to the next election. What kind of an election will that be? Could it be different from what we have seen â&#x20AC;&#x201D; mild-mannered affairs in which ideology plays a minimal role and the parties cluster into the centre? What observers now fear is a culture war, of the kind we have seen recently in the United States and, to a lesser extent, in Canadian federal politics. In a culture war, the two sides are bitterly divided. Rather than cluster into the centre, they diverge widely and bitterly. They are divided not only on political issues, but on personal beliefs and patterns of behaviour. The stage is set for it, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for sure. One of the two leading parties is led by a businessman

from Fort Erie, with a traditional marriage; the other is led by a community activist from Toronto, who is a lesbian. So there you have it: big city versus small town, man versus woman, old values versus new values, traditional marriage versus samesex marriage, businessman versus activist, Barrhaven versus the Glebe. People have talked about this kind of divergence in recent federal elections, with the Harper Conservatives, the hockey fans, versus the Ignatieff Liberals, the Chardonnay-sipping intellectuals. Tim Hortons versus Starbucks. The notion of a culture war is supported by the breakdown of the vote: Ignatieffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main strength was in downtown Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver; Harper won the small towns and the suburbs. So is that what we have to look forward to when Ontario goes to the polls? Probably not. Because we are more complex than that. Our downtown intellectuals like hockey. There are opera fans in small towns, book clubs in Carleton Place. Barrhaven has a Starbucks, Tim Hortons has Wi-Fi, McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s has lattes. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a gadget wine fanciers use to put air into the stuff and supposedly make it taste better. They buy that at Home Hardware. We are all moving closer together. We all see basically the same TV and get the same Internet. Isolation is a thing of the past and differences no longer shock us. Even the gay factor, the one thought to be the possible spark for a culture war, is far less of an issue than it might have been 10 years ago. Small town parents have children with gay friends. It is not a big deal. Certainly you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hear anything about it from the opposition party leaders in the next election campaign. Whatever their private views they know that the biggest political risk is in appearing to be intolerant. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty hard to wage a culture war under those circumstances. It will likely be just another boring old election, fought on the usual issues, which is not that bad a thing.

Ontario needs to shake up the status quo

O

ver the last six months, as public school teachers squared off against the government, something struck me about my fellow Canadians: We’ve become far too comfortable with the status quo. As teachers conducted rotating strikes before the Christmas holidays, parents whined all over Facebook. One father of a kindergartener said his child would be “traumatized” by the cancellation of her Christmas pageant. Others questioned how they could work if their children had nowhere to go during the day, and demanded teaching be declared an essential service. The same people then turned around and accused teachers of being lazy, selfish and poor role models. Frankly, the comments flying around social and mainstream media about

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse teachers have been nothing short of abusive. We entrust teachers to educate and guard our children for more than 30 hours each week. On the one hand we put them on pedestals, expecting them to pick up the slack where we, as parents, fail. If kids are obese, we blame school cafeterias and curricula which demand children sit all day. If kids lack discipline, we blame teachers for not maintaining a tight ship. If kids are getting bullied, it must be the teachers’ faults for not paying attention. We expect teachers to be dieticians, life coaches

and psychologists. Yet when the teachers turn around and demand the right to negotiate a fair contract, we castigate them. Most of us felt quite comfortable lapping up the government propaganda that said teachers were demanding more money. But in case you missed the nuance, this dispute has never been about money. Teachers have not been looking for salary increases, shorter work days or more vacation time. They simply want to maintain their right to negotiate a fair contract. Imagine for a second your

employer coming to you one day and saying, “Times are tough, so we’re asking you all to take a wage freeze – despite the 10 per cent inflation per year on basic goods – we’re taking away your sick days – despite the fact you look after snot-nosed kids all day -- and if you don’t like it, too bad.” You wouldn’t put up at least a little bit of a fight? To their credit, teachers, en masse, largely agreed to those concessions last spring. But these things are never black and white. There are 114,000 full-time teachers in this province. They needed time to examine and negotiate the contract. They wanted to make sure, for example, that the very lowest-salaried people in the profession would be protected. But the government was determined to shove the contract down their throat. And when some of the boards didn’t like it,

the government created backto-work legislation because, God forbid, Ontarians be inconvenienced by a shake up of the status quo. There is a recent and disturbing history in this country of shutting down job action before it has a chance to cause any inconvenience. Since 2010, we’ve seen federal back-to-work legislation for CP Rail, Air Canada and Canada Post. As a result, we have seen insecure, minimum-wage jobs replace secure, salaried careers in these institutions. In short, we have witnessed a rapid deterioration of our workforce. There is a common belief out there that unions have run their course, that they have no place in our modern world. How easily we forget contemporary history. If you are legitimately employed in Ontario, you have a legislated 48-hour work-week, you are

entitled to vacation pay, parental leave, Employment Insurance, disability insurance and a public pension. For all this, you can thank unions. If you’ve spent a day in a classroom lately, you’ll know we demand a lot of bang for our buck from teachers. Despite this, we expect teachers will mould our children into educated, kind and healthy individuals. We are fortunate in this province that teaching is still considered by many educated and caring people to be a good profession. If we want to preserve the quality of our public education system by continuing to attract talented people, we need to ensure that teachers are dealt with fairly by the government. To accomplish this, however, may just mean accepting a temporary deterioration of our comfortable, middle-class lives.

Impact on community garden a concern anticipating securing funding this calendar year, was still advised to apply for the rezoning earlier rather than later, given the lengthy approval process. No application has yet been filed, and McRae thanked Birmingham for holding a preconsultation meeting with the community. Community housing staff were also on hand to record community feedback. A number of questions were posed to Poirier regarding possible security issues that could emanate from the building, concerns she downplayed given the small unit size of the proposed building, the security measures in effect at all community housing buildings and the fact the building would be populated only by seniors - those with serious health issues specifically. “This building would have a designated use and we would sign a memorandum of understanding with the CCHC to that effect,” said Poirier. Nearby resident Brittany Fritsch asked Birmingham if the health centre had a solution to the missing community garden space under the proposed plan. Currently the garden has 130 plots, tended to by 98 gardeners from within the community. “I’ve started to look at other options,” said Birmingham, noting he also looked into the costs of re-configuring the facility’s parking area in order to keep the full garden. Putting the parking underground would greatly increase the cost of the facility, he said. “I’m hoping that is we can

keep 30 or 40 plots (in the original garden); we can find other areas in the community that can be used.” Given the need for both the Carlington Community Health Centre and Ottawa Community Housing to find funding for the project and the length of the rezoning process, residents were told they will have many more meetings in the future in which to give critical feedback on elements of the detailed plans.

Calling it a “very innovative model,” Birmingham said the partnership and proposed expansion has received support from the Champlain Local Health Integration Network, as it fits their model of local services and supportive, independent living for seniors. Services offered would include expanded nursing and palliative care, home support and diabetes services, an increased number of exam rooms and greater accessibility. Currently the building at 900 Merivale cannot fit a medical stretcher bed into its elevator, meaning patients have to be carried down a flight of stairs. The ground floor space in the proposed building, oriented along Coldrey Avenue, would make ambulance pickups far easier. Under the cost-spitting arrangement, the health centre would pay one-quarter of the total sum of the project (covering the construction of ground-floor medical space), while Ottawa Community Housing would pay the rest, which would allow for construction of three floors of one-bedroom and bachelor suites above that. So far, Birmingham said, no money has been pledged from the LHIN or the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, though the health centre will be pursuing this. Ottawa Community Housing chief executive Jo-Anne Poirier said the rising number of seniors living in Ottawa has meant there are 2,000 currently on a waiting list for low-income lodging offered by Ottawa Community Housing. As well, an aging at home program that made medical resources available at 11 community housing seniors buildings led to a 30 per cent reduction in hospital trips for those living there.

“When Michael approached us with this partnership, we were very excited about the prospect of having groundfloor services as well as 70 apartment units,” said Poirier. “This proposal reflects the changing needs of the population.” Ottawa Community Housing will also be looking for funding sources to finance their part of the proposal. As explained by Birmingham, the residential component of the proposal would require a zoning bylaw amendment, meaning the same planning process seen at countless condo and housing developments would have to be followed here. River Coun. Maria McRae explained to residents the details of such a process, including the opportunities for community feedback and cooperation. As the initial plan would see some changes to traffic flow and parking, as well as a contentious removal of twothirds of the site’s community garden space, residents were eager to mitigate any detrimental effects to the neighborhood. “I see this as a good mix of two great agencies, with good intentions coming together,” said McRae. “There are a lot of things we can do between tonight and before anything gets done.” Responding to questions regarding the removal of community garden space, McRae said she would demand a holding provision linking the proposal’s landscaping plan to the overall site plan to be filed with the rezoning application. The health centre, while not

Paratriathlon academy comes to town Carleton University to host new national training venture Steph Willems

Steph Willems/Metroland

World paratriathlon champion Jennifer Hopkins speaks at the launch of a pilot project between Carleton University and Triathlon Canada on Feb. 1. The project will see the country’s first national paratriathlon academy created at the Carleton campus to give athletes access to training in advance of the 2016 Paralympic Summer Games. Canada will not stand still.” O’Reilly Runte called it “fitting” for the academy to set up shop at Carleton, due to the school’s accessibility, including seven kilometers of heated underground tunnels. Larry McMahon, operations director of Triathlon Canada, said his organization and the athletes it supports have “benefited greatly” from its many partnerships, including one with Carleton, as their mission statements of inclusivity and accessibility over-

lap perfectly. McMahon outlined the aims of the academy, only one of which was to garner more medals. “If successful, this will ultimately lead to a talent pool capable of achieving international podium results, such as the Paralympics, as well as promoting participation in sport, just for the love of it,” said McMahon. The launch featured an inspirational speech from World Paratriathlon Champion Jen-

Dear friends, Two weeks ago, Ontario Liberal Party delegates made history when they gathered in Toronto to elect Ontario’s first female Premier - Kathleen Wynne! Kathleen has held several senior portfolios within government: Education, Municipal Affairs & Housing, and Transportation. I’ve sat with her in Cabinet and Caucus and got to know her even more over the course of the past year. As Minister of Infrastructure, I’ve worked closely with Kathleen on some difficult files in her recent capacity as Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing. I know her to be a thoughtful, collaborative and principled decision maker and I know she will be an excellent Premier. As an MPP, I have had the privilege and honour of serving under several different leaders -- David Peterson, Lynn McLeod and Dalton McGuinty. Each has their own leadership style and personality and I look forward to serving Kathleen Wynne in the years to come. As an MPP and candidate in the next election, I’m confident that Ontario families, youth and seniors will continue to find confidence in and support a Kathleen Wynne government. As former Regional Chair and Mayor and an MPP from Ottawa, it has been my distinct pleasure to work with Ottawa’s “home town” Premier - Dalton McGuinty. He has delivered for his community time and again and has left our city a dramatically better place than it was before his term in office. He and his team have a lot to be proud of, and our community has a lot to be grateful for. My most important work has always been as Member of Provincial Parliament, to serve the community of Ottawa West-Nepean and represent this riding at Queen’s Park. I look forward to continuing to fight for your priorities and our community’s interests.

“Last year we installed solar panels on our roof. The revenue we earn will add substantially to our retirement income.”

“My bank made it easy to finance because my system will pay for itself in 7 years. The revenue stream will be a big selling feature if I sell my house.”

As always, please do not hesitate to contact my constituency office at 613-721-8075 or bob@bobchiarelli.com with any questions or comments you may have. Sincerely,

EMC news - Carleton University is poised to become a paratriathlete training ground following the Feb. 1 announcement of a joint pilot project with Triathlon Canada. Canada’s first National Paratriathlon Academy will offer aspiring athletes in the Ottawa-Gatineau region access to paratriathlon training and programs, as well as partnership opportunities with the university. The venture was announced by Minister of State (Sport) Bal Gosal at the Carleton University Fieldhouse. Calling it a “fantastic initiative,” Gosal extended his appreciation to Triathlon Canada and Carleton for embarking on the new project. “I’m convinced this innovative (partnership) will lead to the growth of paratriathlon and result in even more outstanding performances and medals for our paralympians, as we saw in London (last year),” said Gosal, crediting Canadian Paralympic Committee executive director Francois Robert for “raising the bar every day.” Triathlon Canada receives federal funding through Sport Canada and Own the Podium, as well as private funding through a number of organizations. The paratriathlon is a new sport announced three years ago to debut at the 2016 Paralympic Games. Consisting of a 750-metre swim, 20-kilometre bike course and a five-kilometre run, paratriathletes compete using racing wheelchairs and hand cycles, as well as sighted guides for those with visual impairments. In anticipation of the 2016 Games, Triathlon Canada has grown its paratriathlon program to help athletes benefit from new opportunities. The National Paratriathlon Academy, which can be joined for a nominal fee by those ages 16 and up, will offer two on-site training camps each month, online webinars, and opportunities to access further advanced training. The goal is to form a nationwide network of academies through partnerships with post-secondary institutions. “The sport is growing at a rapid pace in Canada and around the world,” said Roseann O’Reilly Runte, president and vice-chancellor of Carleton University. “Triathlon Canada has been recruiting people to the sport and conducting training camps in advance of the World Championships over the last two years. The group has enhanced competition schedules in preparation for Rio. With more paratriathletes competing at the 2012 World Championships, the world is pushing the bar and Triathlon

nifer Hopkins, who achieved success in her sport despite battling multiple sclerosis and lupus, as well as a rare neurological disease. She began to train as a way of combating these afflictions, and soon grew to love it. “I’ve always loved to run, but swimming and biking were never my first passions,” said Hopkins. “Suddenly, when I began to swim, I found myself loving the three disciplines – running, biking and swimming. Triathlon became my new passion.” Hopkins participated in a triathlon in 2008, followed by an Ironman race in 2009 that she used as a platform for an MS fundraiser. That started her career in professional competition. “Without training groups, clubs, programs training camps and even academies that let us join, you just don’t know where Canada’s next world champion or paralympian will come from,” said Hopkins of the new project. “It’s about giving people regardless of their age, disability or background the opportunity to participate in sport.”

Cancer foundation event swaps celebrities Jenny McCarthy out, Tommy Europe in at fitness fundraiser Michelle Nash

EMC news - Celebrity guest Jenny McCarthy has been booted from this year’s

with the naming of McCarthy as the fundraiser’s fitness ambassador. Bust a Move chairwoman, Bernice Rachkowski said the comedienne was originally

chosen because of her fun attitude. “We wanted someone who would get involved and have fun,” she said. “This event is about everyone coming out and having fun.” A Hollywood celebrity and author, McCarthy is

well-known for writing and speaking out about her ideas concerning healthy living, including making controversial statements about possible links between infant vaccines and autism. She also claims to have healed her son from the disorder. The foundation announced it was replacing McCarthy as guest speaker on Feb. 1, Ottawa Cancer Foundation president Linda Eagen said the controversy surrounding the celebrity was drawing attention away from breast cancer awareness and fundraising. “We did get questions from a number of different sources, not just in Ottawa, she (McCarthy) has a strong focus on fitness, but she also has strong opinions in other areas, all the attention was going towards her opinions rather than the focus on the fundraiser and the fitness event,” Eagen said. In McCarthy’s place, Canadian fitness coach Tommy Europe will be leading the fundraising event on March 2.

“We are proud to work very closely with our partners in the medical community and the general public to raise funds and awareness for cancer care in our community, said president of the foundation,” Eagen said. “As always, our objective and responsibility is to the cancer survivors in our community and keeping the spotlight on our cause.” Collaborating with the St. Laurent Centre, the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation will host a one-day fitness event called Bust a Move at the Ottawa Athletic Club. In 2012, the foundation raised $350,000 for the cause. There are six different fitness sessions at the fundraising event including zumba and yoga, a great Canadian “kitchen party,” boxing and urban dance. Rachkowski has promised the event is aimed at getting people moving. Each participant must raise a minimum of $1,000 to attend and the day is geared to be fun for all fitness levels. “We know that this year’s event will continue our tradition of fundraising successes that will help thousands of local cancer patients and their families.” Eagan said in a press release. For more information about the event, visit ottawacancer. ca or contact the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation at 613-247-3527. All the proceeds raised at the event are invested in the community to help improve regional cancer services.

But I thought back then it had more to do with the piles of gum rubbers, wet socks, the wood stove and bagged lunches on the table at the back of the room. All the girls at the Northcote School wore galoshes. Some had rabbit fur down their fronts, and then some of us just had galoshes that laced up tight around our ankles. It was a sign of wealth if your galoshes had fur on them. Sadly, I never owned a pair. The boys wore either gum rubbers or rubber boots. The gum rubbers and boots had a thick layer of red around the soles.

EMC news - Non-profits, small businesses and the public service alike are being encouraged to take advantage of the federal government’s Canada Summer Jobs program for students.

It’s a win-win-win that we’re happy

Only full-time students who intend to return to school next year can qualify for the job opportunities. Canada Summer Jobs applications are available online at servicecanada.gc.ca/csj2013 and at Service Canada Centres. Applications must be submitted between Feb. 1 and Feb. 28.

A late night house fire at 1140 Shillington Avenue has left an elderly woman dead and her son in critical condition.

Fatal fire on Shillington Ave. EMC news - An elderly woman is dead and her son is in serious condition following a late-night house fire on Shillington Avenue over the weekend. The fire broke out just before 10 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 2 inside the single-family residence at 1140 Shillington Ave.

Responding fire crews discovered an elderly resident, identified in the media as Shirley Goyette, on the first floor of the house, and two middle-aged men suffering from serious smoke inhalation standing outside. One man, identified as the victim’s son, James Goyette, suffered extensive

burns while attempting to rescue his mother and is listed in critical condition. Shirley Goyette died at the scene. As is the case with all fatal fires, the Ontario fire marshal and the Ottawa police arson unit have been called in to investigate the cause of the blaze.

Farm Boy, a local fresh food retailer entices customers to help raise funds for the CHEO Centre for Healthy Active Living with their second annual CHEO coupon book.

Monies raised have contributed to the purchase of much needed equipment for the hospital and for the development of the Farm Boy Fun Park, an outdoor play area for children and their families to use during their stay at the hospital. This year, Farm Boy has pledged all fundraising proceeds to the CHEO Centre for Healthy Active Living to help kids at risk of weight related health complications and their families achieve a healthier, active lifestyle. Given the fresh food retailers focus on wholesome fresh foods, it’s a natural fit. To kick off this year’s fundraising efforts, Farm Boy presented CHEO with a cheque for $50,000 to be used

by the centre. “I’m proud of how our customers and our employees have helped make this donation possible,” said Jeff York, Farm Boy CEO. “Together we can all help children in our community embrace healthy active lifestyles, including healthy eating.”

“We would like to thank Farm Boy customers and staff for continuing to be so supportive of CHEO. The new coupon book is a great way to save money and improve the lives of kids at the same time.”

EMC news - A cash infusion from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada prompted the launch of a health and wellness research centre at Algonquin College on Jan. 30. The $2.3-million grant is the third grant given to the college through the council’s College and Community Innovation program. It will help to link small, local companies with lab space at the college and allow students to use new and developing technology while training for work in their field. College president Kent MacDonald said the launch was about a year in the making. “I think it’s the job of postsecondary educational institutions to improve the communities they are in,” he said. “And with this type of partnership, we can help move products that will benefit Canada’s healthcare system from the idea stage to the marketplace.” The health and wellness research centre employs a full-time project manager and a support staff member who together engage students and academic leaders on projects

with industry partners. There are currently six such projects underway and staff hope to start 10 more this year. Markus Latzel, president of Palomino System Innovations – a company that uses Cloud computing technology to store health data – said the real life patient data provided by working with nurses at the college’s centre is invaluable. Mark Hoddenbagh, director of applied research and innovation at the college said research partnerships will result in better trained professionals graduating from the college and entering the workforce. “The mission of this centre is to leverage the college’s existing educational and research strengths to contribute to the health and wellness sectors, resulting in highly trained personnel, economic development and job creation,” Hoddenbagh said. “We are thrilled to launch this new centre which we know will provide a major boost to health and wellness research in Ottawa by enhancing hands-on student training and preparedness for the workplace, assisting entrepreneurs, small and medium enterprises and large companies and further developing the skills of our faculty.” R0011896888

Ottawa City Councillor — Bay Ward Dear Neighbours, In January I was out doing what I really enjoy, knocking on doors! The freezing rain didn’t deter my team and me from canvassing in Crystal Beach. We wished residents a Happy New Year and checked in to ask how our City is working and what issues are important to them. The extreme cold didn’t stop us from knocking on doors in Woodroffe North either. In the coming months we are sure to be in your community as we continue to check-in with residents.

This heritage home at 187 Lansdowne Rd. in Rockcliffe Park will be saved and restored after its owner, the Iraqi government, agreed to drop an appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board.

Iraq to restore heritage property Plans to tear down ambassador’s home in Rockcliffe Park reconsidered EMC news - An historic home in Rockcliffe Park is getting a reprieve after the Iraqi Embassy agreed to restore the building instead of replacing it. The Iraqi government had hoped to tear down the building and construct a new home for its ambassador, but city council rejected that plan, leaving the embassy to appeal the decision to the Ontario Municipal Board. On Feb. 1, the mayor’s office announced the Iraqi government had agreed to drop its appeal and will restore the home in a way that maintains its heritage character. “In light of the heritage significance of the property, the government of Iraq is pleased to announce that it will restore the residence in keeping with the original heritage character of the property,” the Iraqi ambassador to Canada, Abdulrahman Al-Hussaini, wrote in a letter to Mayor Jim Watson. Leslie Maitland, president of Heritage Ottawa, said the move came as a surprise. “This is wonderful that they’ve generously offered to restore the building,” she said, adding the project will be a challenge because of the home’s poor condition. Maitland noted the Iraqi government has also proposed an attractive, heritage-sensitive new building for its embassy, to be rebuilt on McLeod Street. When the matter of the 187 Lansdowne Rd. property was debated last spring, members of the surrounding community, which includes mainly low buildings and bungalows built into the sloping landscape of the area, opposed the embassy’s plan to construct a threestorey home on the site. That plan was later changed to a smaller, two-storey home.

Ottawa physicist picks up international award U of O professor helped develop light pulse used to measure particles Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - A University of Ottawa professor has received one of the most prestigious international physics awards for his work involving light and matter. Paul Corkum, a professor at the university, has been awarded the King Faisal International Prize for contributions to two categories: exceptionally serving Islam and Muslims and provinding research resulting in scientific advances. “(It’s) very exciting,” said Corkum, who is also Canada’s national research chair in attosecond photonics. “I didn’t know so much about it (the award) I knew I was nominat-

ed but thought there was zero chance to win.” Corkum shares the prize with fellow collaborator Ferenc Krausz of Munich, Germany. Over the course of 34 years, Corkum is only one of three Canadian scholars who have won the prize. Winners receive a commemorative gold medallion and a cash endowment of $200,000. On the foundation’s website it says many winners have gone on to win Nobel prizes for the same works that were recognized by King Faisal International Prize. Corkum’s research has been recognized for shortening the duration of light pulses produced by lasers and he became the first scientist to success-

fully produce a 650 attosecond pulse – very short flashes of light – which can capture or stop atoms, molecules and other tiny particles in time so they can be observed. “One attosecond is incredibly short. If you compared it to one second it’s like one second compared to the age of the universe,” Corkum said. But the professor isn’t ready to rest on his laurels -- a scientist is never done researching and testing theories. “As you accomplish something, you get more dreams, and you don’t quite know how it will work out because no one has been there before but that’s what’s fun about it, no one has done it before,” Corkum said. “I can’t think of anything more exciting than something that no one has ever done before and I get to try it.” A scientist for over 30 years, Corkum said it’s a passion unlike any other.

Submitted

University of Ottawa professor and National Research Council scientist Paul Corkum has won the King Faisal International Prize for science for his development of attoseccond imaging. “Doing science is the intellectual equivalent as someone might think skiing as fast as you can down a ski hill would be; its fun and exhilarating for the brain,” he said. The Rothwell Heights resi-

dent credits his love for physics to his former high school teacher in his home town of Saint John, N.B. Corkum said this teacher managed to make him think of theories and physics well outside of the classroom walls. “I would walk home and I would think about what he taught me in class,” he said. From there, Corkum has excelled in his field. He graduated from Acadia University and obtained his masters and his PhD in theoretical physics from Lehigh University in Pennsylvania. Over the course of his career, he has won the Gerhard Herzberg Canada Gold Medal for Science and

Engineering. The King Faisal award comes with a trip to Saudi Arabia, which Corkum admits he is very excited about. “I’ve never been there; it’s going to be tremendously interesting,” he said. The university congratulated Corkum on his most recent accomplishment. “(Corkum’s) commitment to research and creativity are inspiring to the whole community and we are proud that such an eminent scientist calls the University of Ottawa home,” said Mona Nemer, vice-president, research. Corkum will accept his award in March.

“She was the only person I could be broken in front of. She showed me I was loved and that I could trust. Her love has let me open up and love others. For this, I am forever grateful”. Youth in care.

Foster Family Month

With family day just around the corner, we’re reminded of the importance of families and family life. Many of us spend the day enjoying quality time with our families, possibly skating on the canal or hosting a special dinner. At the end of the day, family day marks a time to appreciate the important people in our lives, our children, parents, relatives and friends. This day acts as a reminder of how fortunate we are everyday to have a circle of individuals in which we can surround ourselves. Sadly, this is the not the case for many children and youth in our community, which is why the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa (CASO) is dedicating the month of February to foster families. We all remember what it’s like to be a teenager and how hard it can be to simply fit in. Imagine going through this time without parental support. When matching youth with foster parents, consideration is always given to qualities such as personality, culture and ethnicity. These familiar traits are important in helping youth feel comfortable, safe and secure in their temporary surroundings. CASO is very fortunate to have many loving and devoted foster families open their hearts and their homes. They provide parental guidance and support youth desperately need. Our foster parents are from all walks of life; they are single or partnered, retired or at home and from diverse backgrounds. These individuals provide a supporting home environment for youth who have been temporarily removed from their home. The care is typically for a short period of time, while CASO work with the natural parent(s) to improve the home conditions or an alternate living arrangement is made within the child’s own extended family or community. Regardless of the time period, foster parents play a vital role in the life of a youth.

Senator mocks Theresa Spence at fundraiser MP Galipeau says Idle No More movement made up of mostly white people During the speech in Orléans, Brazeau referred to Spence’s 44 days on Victoria Island as a “so-called hunger strike,” and mocked her physical shape. “I was sick two weeks ago,” Brazeau said. “I had the flu and I lost five pounds. “I look at Miss Spence, when she started her hunger strike, and now?” Brazeau added as a voice in the hall called out, “She’s fatter,” which drew laughter from much of the audience. In attendance were provincial and federal conservatives, including Ottawa-Orléans Conservative MP Royal Galipeau and Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa MacLeod. Orléans Coun. Rainer Bloess and former Ontario PC cabinet minister Brian Coburn were also at the dinner. Galipeau also went after Spence in his remarks after Brazeau spoke. He said he went to Victoria Island on Dec. 26 and was allowed into Spence’s tent because he wasn’t recognized as a Conservative MP. “I stood in the circle around Chief Spence,” Galipeau said. “I noticed that manicure of hers. I tell you Anne can’t afford it,” he said, referring to his wife. “Most people in Idle No More are people with my skin colour and about my age. It reminded me of the 1960s and 1970s flower people who are now organizers for the NDP

EMC news - The guest speaker stole the show at a dinner for a local provincial PC candidate on Jan. 29. Many of the 80-plus people at the Orléans legion wanted to shake the hand of Conservative Senator Patrick Brazeau after he shared his ideas for financial accountability for First Nations chiefs while questioning Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence’s recent hunger strike. The senator, an aboriginal Canadian who was born in Maniwaki, Que., made the comments during a dinner at the Orléans legion that was intended to update OttawaOrléans PC riding association members and bring out volunteers for candidate Andrew Lister’s next provincial election campaign. Brazeau, 38, is the youngest member of the Senate and is known for his plain-speaking demands for changes to aboriginal governance. He has criticized the Idle No More movement, a campaign to put aboriginal issues on the top of the federal government’s todo list. Brazeau’s comments about Idle No More have drawn a strong response from some First Nations leaders. During Spence’s hunger strike, her Twitter account was used to call Brazeau “a colonized Indian,” although the tweet was later withdrawn.

Conservative Senator Patrick Brazeau shares his ideas for First Nations financial accountability with an audience in Orléans on Jan. 29. Brazeau also criticized Idle No More suppoorters, saying, ‘They don’t stand for anything.’ in Ottawa Centre. They are the same people I saw in the Occupy movement the previous year.” Galipeau’s visit to Victoria Island followed Brazeau’s attempt to speak with Spence. He said he was turned away when he went to see her on Dec. 24 and was told Spence didn’t want to meet with him. “That day … changed the dialogue about what she was really about,” Brazeau said. “What she was really about is the fact that the year before there was a housing crisis at Attawapiskat, her home community. It was bad.” Brazeau said Spence met with members of many other parties, but not Conservatives. “She refused to meet with any Conservatives – the Conservative government, whether you like it or not,

who are in power, who can make changes, who can make decisions on behalf of her situation and other people in Canada. And she refused to meet any of them.” He said he then started to receive “hate mail, criticism and death threats.” “I care as much as anyone in this room does. Nobody wants to see anyone living in those poverty-stricken situations but there shouldn’t be two different rules for different politicians in this country. “If you’re a white politician you should be accustomed to the same rules, you should follow the same rules and be accountable to the people you represent; the same thing as First Nations people. And the longer we are hypocritical about it, the longer these problems are going to persist. I have seen it too often.”

Brazeau said Idle No More has managed to put aboriginal issues in the news but he doesn’t support the movement’s methods. “They don’t stand for anything,” he said. “I, as an Algonquin person, am living proof that no one will colonize me.” Prior to his speech, Brazeau told the EMC that transparency is the number one issue for First Nations leaders. He wants changes that require them to account for every dollar they receive from the federal government. “All Canadians, including First Nations people, have an interest in how money is spent, where it is going and that they have access to funds when they need it,” he said. “Unfortunately, (the chiefs) aren’t speaking out for more accountability. Everything

but that.” That opinion makes him a lightning rod for criticism from some aboriginal leaders, although Brazeau says there are many chiefs who agree with his position. He also said the Indian Act should be scrapped and that the federal Aboriginal Affairs department is unnecessary. “The Indian Act has to go,” he said. “It is the most racist, paternalistic legislation in the world. It denies First Nations people the opportunities other Canadians enjoy.” Brazeau said many Canadians may think aboriginals have advantages such as not having to pay taxes, but he points out that many aboriginals don’t own the land they live on. During a questionand-answer session after his speech, he suggested First Nations people should be given ownership of the land where they live or be able to buy back land previously sold to the federal government. Brazeau alluded to two issues he’s dealt with since being named to the Senate by Prime Minister Stephen Harper in 2008. He thanked Lister – who serves as the senator’s lawyer – for his help dealing with problems, including accusations that he improperly received a housing allowance. Brazeau received more than $20,000 to offset personal costs because he claimed a residence in Maniwaki, about 130 kilometres from Parliament Hill. Some media reports indicated that he rarely stayed at the Maniwaki address but spent his time in Ottawa.

Vanier residents plan to celebrate centennial Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

of Eastview as a town and its 50th anniversary as a city. “It is about celebrating Vanier’s history, not just one point or other in history, but the journey that it has been, that we are still here and that we are doing well after all this time,” Garvey said. Her goal is to tell as many of the human stories of growing up in Vanier, stories she wants to bring to life. “I think there are some

fascinating Vanier stories that people don’t have a clue about,” Garvey said. Working with her is former resident Des Garvey -- of no relation -- who was born in his Vanier home 85 years ago. “There were no hospitals then, it was just a bunch of female neighbours helping out,” Des said. His sister, Marie-Francis Garvey, will be turning 100 this March and Julie Garvey

said Marie-Francis’ story and a number of other older residents living in the neighbourhood are exactly the type of stories residents need to hear. “We need to focus on those stories now, if we don’t capture it now we lose it,” she said. Ultimately, Garvey said she would like to have all the stories recorded so they can be passed on to future generations of Vanier residents.

EMC news - Residents in Vanier are working together to celebrate the community spirit and history of their neighbourhood. This year will mark the 100th anniversary of Vanier, formerly known as Eastview. It was in 1969 that Eastview was renamed Vanier, in honour of the late Georges Va-

nier, former governor general of Canada. On Jan. 1, 1913, Janeville, Clarkstown and Clandeboye merged into the village of Eastview, and 50 years later, the village incorporated as a city. Resident Julie Garvey does not want this year to pass uncelebrated, so she has embarked on a mission to bring multiple groups, residents and organizations in Vanier together to celebrate both the 100th anniversary

But capturing the stories is only one piece of the larger pie for Garvey. In order to get the news out about the upcoming anniversary, she has been meeting with people around town, including attending the Vanier Community Association meeting in January. This sparked discussions with other groups in the community, including resident Dan Shipley, who is already planning a festival for the summer. The Vanier Festival of/des Nations is planned for August, and Shipley said it will be a celebration of Vanier’s cultural diversity.

Ottawa Sports Awards honour city’s top athletes Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - Ottawa’s top athletes and their families gathered at Algonquin College on Jan. 30 for Canada’s largest amateur athletics awards. The Ottawa Sports Awards, celebrating its 60th anniversary, handed out awards in every sport, recognizing coaches, athletes and volunteers. The stars of the evening were Kanata’s Craig Savill, curler, and Orléans’ Courtnay Pilypaitis, basketball player, who were male and female athletes of the year. Savill won the 2012 Brier and is the current world champion, while Pilypaitis competed for Canada at the 2012 Olympic Games. The women’s athlete of the year trophy was renamed for six-time winner Kristina Groves, a Brookfield High School graduate, was able to attend the banquet to present Pilypaitis with the newly-named Kristina Groves Female Athlete of the Year Award. But it wasn’t all about the stars, as athletes from littlerecognized sports such as touch football and cricket were recognized for being the top in their sports in 2012. It was the 60th year for the event, originally the As-

ID#A148031

ID#A152416

Miko is a neutered male, black Domestic Shorthair cat who is 7 years old. He was brought to the shelter as a stray but is now available for adoption. He is looking for a quiet family, and would do best in a home that has stability and a regular and predictable routine. While in our care, Miko has experienced recurrent soft stools/ diarrhea. We have treated him for the most common intestinal parasites but you will need to discuss his condition with your veterinarian to develop the best treatment plan for him going forward.

Blacky is a 6 year old spayed female, black and tricolor Siberian Husky and Border Collie mix. She was brought to the shelter as a stray on January 4, but is now ready for adoption! Don’t let Blacky’s graying face fool you, she is no couch potato and would need daily walks to stay fit and healthy. She’s looking for a forever family that would let her play with her toys, but teach her about sharing!

For more information about these or other animals available for adoption, please call the Adoption Centre at 613-725-3166 ext. 258 or visit www.ottawahumane.ca.

February is national prevent a litter month. Are your pets spayed or neutered? A large portion of animals brought to the Ottawa Humane Society (OHS) are litters of kittens and puppies from unplanned pregnancies. Every year thousands of animals across Canada must be euthanized because they are unhealthy and unwanted, born into poor conditions and not cared for properly. As an open admission shelter, the OHS takes in all animals, regardless of their health or behaviour. But it comes at a cost – daily care, vaccinations, routine deworming and defleaing, and spay and neuter procedures for the litters adds up to thousands of dollars. Be a responsible pet owner and spay and neuter your pets. Having your dog or cat spayed or neutered is not only an essential component of responsible pet ownership, but also an important civic duty as a responsible citizen. Contact your veterinarian or the Ottawa Spay and Neuter Clinic, a subsidized clinic run by the City of Ottawa, at 613-798-8970.

The OHS is doing its part by ensuring that cats and dogs adopted from the shelter are spayed and neutered. Please note that the Ottawa Humane Society does not offer spaying or neutering services to the public. Spaying or neutering your pet has a variety of benefits, including: s 2EDUCINGTHETENDENCYINMALECATSANDDOGSTOROAM s %LIMINATINGINCONVENIENCEOFTHEHEATCYCLEINFEMALEDOGS and cats s 0ROVIDINGBETTERHEALTHINMALEANDFEMALEDOGSANDCATS s %LIMINATINGSPRAYINGINMOSTMALECATS s &ACILITATINGTRAINING s 1UALIFYINGYOURPETFORAREDUCEDMUNICIPALLICENSEFEEIN Ottawa The OHS receives no government funding or funding from any animal welfare group and relies on donations to care for the communities unwanted, neglected, and abandoned animals.

University students tackle gender violence Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Students at the University of Ottawa are preparing to host their very first charity conference aimed at ending gender-based violence. Girls Night 2013 will be held at the university from Feb. 8 to 9 and will welcome motivational speakers, performers, a free concert and fitness activities. The conference is a first of its kind and has been organized completely by the students. Rona Ghanbari, vice president of the political, international and development studies students’ association, said the idea for the conference was the work of Maddy Orr, a first-year student, whose idea for hosting a girl’s night sleepover blossomed into the two-day conference. The event is looking to motivate and encourage the entire student body to start talking about violence against women. “Gender-based violence is a huge issue and it’s often not talked about, especially among young girls,” Ghanbari said. “Our main goal is to get people talking about the issue and understanding the issue, and see how we can move forward from there.” But even though the conference has been dubbed a “girls night” the conference is not just for girls. “This is not a conference for women only. We want to get men involved as well. Despite the name Girls Night,” Ghanbari said. “We actually have included panels and workshops that apply to men as well. Women are not the only victims of violence and women are not the only people who can help eradicate it.” The conference will begin with keynote speaker Aruna

Papp, a human rights advocate and social worker. Ghanbari said Papp will speak about the importance of education to break the cycle of violence and discussing themes from her book Unworthy Creature: A Punjabi Daughter’s Memoir of Honour, Shame and Love. A free concert will start at 8:30 p.m. with local bands Motel Raphael and Eleven Past One performing. “We made the concert free because we figured it would be a great way to open it up to all students and all of the community really,” Ghanbari said. “We really wanted this event to be open and accessible to everyone.” The bands and all of the speakers participating in the conference have donated their time, the JunXion public house donated their facilities and the university has offered its own support, allowing the committee to book rooms for free and will cover the costs for the free concert. The workshops and panels range from topic such as advocating for equality, the role of men in ending violence, the role of the law in protecting women, violence against aboriginal women, the media’s take on violence, manifestations of violence on campuses, violence against vulnerable persons, and hu-

man trafficking in Canada. PLAN Canada, the Ottawa Coalition to End Violence Against Women, Amnesty International, the Ottawa police, the Congress of Aboriginal Peoples and University of Ottawa professors are all participating in the event. “All of the girls had contacts ... and it just ended up being a snowball - students would approach us with organizations they knew of that might be interested and we searched for some ourselves and it has all sort of fallen in place,” Ghanbari said. Yoga sessions, self defence classes and an organization fair will round out the conference’s events. “We wanted to make sure we had a balance of activities that would be eyeopening and help educate and start a dialogue with the participants, but also activities that are fun and relaxing and make people feel refreshed and empowered,” Ghanbari said. Registration for the conference is available online at www.pidssa.ca or on campus at the association’s office located at suite 2002 of the Faculty of Social Sciences Building. Tickets are $20 for University of Ottawa students and $25 for any other members of the community. Proceeds from the event will be donated to the Canadian Women’s Foundation. A full schedule is available on the association’s website at www.pidssa.ca. R0011891969_0207

Routes AvAilAble!

EMC sports - Craig Savill is ready to give a big “told you so” to his high school friends. “To my high school buddies that always picked me last in high school?” he asked, as he accepted his Ottawa Sports Awards male athlete of the year trophy, responding with blowing a large raspberry, “I…get to kick them in the butt and tell them, ‘I told you I was an athlete.’” Savill won the award for top athlete for his curling accomplishments as the lead for the Glenn Howard curling rink. At 34, Savill is a four time world champion, twice as a junior and twice as a senior, and the 2012 Tim Hortons Brier champion. While his busy life keeps him on the road a lot – which he acknowledged by thanking his wife for holding down the fort – he lives and works in Kanata when he’s not on the road. He’s soon to be a father of two, so he thanked her for “letting me fulfill my dreams.” He trains with the Ottawa Curling Club when in the city, and has taken home top honours for curling at the Ottawa Sports Awards before, but never top male athlete. “I wasn’t looking to be a

Craig Savill, right, accepts the award for male athlete of the year at the Ottawa Sports Awards on Jan. 30. He is the lead for Glenn Howard’s rink that won the 2012 Brier. world champion,” he told athletes at the banquet, held at Algonquin College on Jan. 30. Savill said that as a young curler, he dreamed of just getting to play in a Brier, and never imagined that he would one day win it – multiple times. He said he stopped in at the Manotick Curling Club to train while home for the awards, and gathered a group of youngsters, who waited to get autographs when he finished. “Now these kids are looking up to me, which I just find ridiculous,” he said. “All of us have a responsibility; there are

people who are looking up to you…encourage them to keep playing.” The Glenn Howard rink officially trains and plays out of Coldwater, Ont., near Midland. But he would love to win a title back home, and threw a suggestion to Mayor Jim Watson, who was in the crowd, that it might be time for Ottawa to host the Brier again. He was presented the award by past winner Ian Mortimer. “You live in a great city to be an athlete,” Mortimer said. “Dream big, then make those dreams a reality.”

Slow down a little, Sagittarius. Moving faster will not get the job done to your satisfaction and then you only will have to do it all over again. Think through your options. Capricorn, shift your focus to your family for the next few days because you have to make some decisions that will affect them all. Listen to your gut feeling when making these decisions.

Virgo, sometimes you need to be tough on yourself to get things done, but you will be satisfied with the results when you push yourself. Focus on goals this week.

Scorpio, it may be challenging to find some initial support for a new idea because you are essentially charting new territory. Just give it time and people will come around.

Cancer, your mind may be churning, but worrying excessively over something will not help the situation. Therefore, focus on something else for a while. Leo, just when you think the week will go on without any excitement, something pops up and it’s just what you need to beat the doldrums. Expect time with friends.

Libra, a risk you take this week will pay off in a big way. You might be anxious to take a significant risk, but the eventual reward will be well worth it.
