EMC news - Two communities neighbouring the Mud Lake are concerned about potentially damaging security issues in the conservation area forest, and recently met to discuss ways of helping the situation. The Britannia Community Neighbourhood Watch initiated the March 21meeting through letters to the National Capital Commission, Ottawa police and political representatives for the west Ottawa community. Members of the watch joined members of the Lincoln Heights-Parkway Community Association in speaking to officials at the meeting. The Mud Lake area, like most urban forests, has a long

history of people using it for activities they’d rather not be seen doing. However, it is the vandalism, harassment of wildlife (often by way of pellet guns) and the setting of fires in the forest that most concerns nearby residents. Campfires, as well as holiday fireworks, became a particular concern during the tinderdry conditions of last summer. However, due to jurisdictional confusion, residents were unsure of who to call to report various activity. “It’s NCC land, but if there’s a criminal matter it is the police’s responsibility,” said nearby resident Suzanne Gauthier. “If someone is lighting bonfires, that’s not considered a criminal matter.” See AREA, page 3

EMC news - Ottawa needs to find ways to convince businesses it’s a good idea to locate near transit hubs, councillors heard on April 9. Fifty per cent of businesses polled by a city-hired consultant said they likely wouldn’t relocate their business closer to a transit line because of perceived or real disadvantages such as difficulty accessing roads and free or low-cost parking and the high cost of buying or renting space. There was also some concern about inconsistent transit service and distance from potential customers.

“Right now it looks like it’s going to be a hard sell,” said Daniel Nixey, a consultant from Danix Management Ltd., who undertook a study of employment lands in Ottawa as part of the ongoing Official Plan update. The transportation committee chairman, Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Egli, said it’s a problem that employers think transit service isn’t good enough to warrant a move. Retailers are more likely to want to move to transit-accessible locations and the federal government is also expected to continue focusing its offices at transit hubs, Nixey said.

EMC news - West end seniors will have a chance to hear about a number of services available locally for the elderly at an event hosted by the Olde Forge Community Resource Centre on April 25. The seniors information fair and lunch is taking place at the Ron Kolbus Lakeside Centre and Mayor Jim Watson will be presiding over the opening ceremony. Exhibitors at the event will offer information on services intended for seniors, such as wellness and support options, community groups, pharmacies, tax advisors, real estate information, retirement residences, recreation, travel and specialized home care. It’s about improving seniors’ live and keeping them independent, said Mary Houston-Lambert, the chairwoman of the resource centre’s executive board. Mobile services like home dentist care and home haircutting are just a few of the services that will be on display at the information fair which can improve the lives of seniors while also allowing them to remain independent.

As an aging population is placing strain on long-term care resources, the cost of those resources is also increasing, said Houston-Lambert. There are a number of services available, however, that can help seniors stay out of long-term care situations and save money as a result. The Olde Forge Community Resource Centre, founded in 1974, is a non-profit organization that provides information and referral services to seniors and adults with physical disabilities. Census data shows the area served by the Olde Forge has an older population than Ottawa as a whole. In 2011, 20 per cent of the area’s population was age 65 years and older, compared to 13 per cent in the city as a whole. The event gets underway at 11 a.m., running until 3 p.m. It will feature a light lunch provided by Nate’s Deli. Tickets can be purchased for $10 at the Olde Forge, located at 2730 Carling Ave. Complimentary bus transportation from Carlingwood and Lincoln Fields shopping centres as well as the Olde Forge is available by reservation through the seniors fair hotline at 613829-9777 ext. 7252.

Black bear sighted near Britannia’s Mud Lake Steph Willems

steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - While Canada Geese are back in town, populating the fields and shorelines after a lengthy winter, one visitor had urban Ottawa a bit uneasy last week. On the night of April 10, a black bear was spotted and photographed by a Britannia resident living on Lincoln Heights Road, which backs onto the Mud Lake conservation area. The peaceful encounter ended when police officers coaxed the wayward bear away from the street and towards the conservation area. Wildlife incursions are nothing new in Ottawa, which sees more than its fair share of human-wildlife interaction, but bear spottings are normally relegated to the neighbourhoods of Kanata and Bells Corners, not Britannia. Through instinct, bears travel by following natural and man-made green corridors – creeks, rivers, ravines, hydro corridors, even the sides of roadways. Residents believe this bear followed the Ottawa River shoreline on its way to Mud Lake.

“That’s the first time we’ve had it happen here,� said Lincoln Heights Road resident Suzanne Gauthier, who frequents the walking trails in the Mud Lake conservation area. Residents are hoping a purposeful lack of human presence will encourage the unexpected visitor to retrace its steps out of the area, rather than scaring it into staying in the Mud Lake woods. “The neighbours have agreed to keep out of the area for a few days to help it find its way back home,� said Gauthier. Lincoln Heights wasn’t the only neighbourhood to have a sighting last week. The next day, residents in Crystal Beach spotted a bear and put the word out via Twitter. Given it is the time of year when bears emerge from hibernation and become mobile again, the office of Bay Coun. Mark Taylor as well as Ottawa police issued notices alerting residents of the danger and providing safety tips. Taylor told the Ottawa West News on Monday that as far as his office knows, the Mud Lake bear is still in the woods and that the Crystal Beach

The forests surrounding Mud Lake in Ottawa’s west end saw an unexpected visitor last week – a wayward black bear that made its way into the area, surprising nearby residents. bear is likely a different animal. “What’s happened this year is that because the winter was so long, the bears are waking up (from hibernation) a bit disoriented and are going further afield,� said Taylor. Taken from the Ministry of Natural Resources “Bear Wise� campaign,

safety tips caution residents from approaching or following bears, and encourage anyone who encounters a bear that has strayed into urban areas to call the police non-emergency number at 613-230-6211. The ministry’s bear reporting line is 1-866-5142327.

Homeowners in the affected areas are advised to make the area less appealing to wayward bears by taking their garbage cans inside, removing bird feeders and cleaning outdoor grills. Reports of urban bears are monitored by the city’s animal control staff, police, and MNR staff.

The Mud Lake is a roughly square parcel of land with the lake in the middle. The Britannia Water Purification Plant and its access road runs along the north end, closest to the Ottawa River, while old Britannia Village runs along the west side. The southern edge is adjacent to the Lincoln Heights neighbourhood, the Ottawa River bike path and recreational parkland next to the Regina Avenue highrises. The eastern side is adjacent to the John A. Macdonald Parkway. The area, which features a network of trails, can be accessed from many points, almost all of them low-profile and discreet. “What we wanted was to have all affected groups come together to identify the problems that exist and come up with solutions,� said Gauthier. A letter sent to the NCC from the Britannia Neighbourhood Watch earlier in the year detailed the issues residents have observed. The meeting shed some light on the

enforcement issue, with residents given a list of numbers to call under the appropriate circumstances. The NCC, they were told, also has an emergency line with which to summon a conservation officer. The community police officer for the area, Const. Admir Minarolli, said the vast majority of those caught setting fires are adolescent boys who live in the surrounding neighbourhoods. A notification to parents is often enough to prevent them from being caught a second time, he said. Residents who live near Mud Lake were encouraged to take ownership of the area in whatever ways they can, and to not be afraid of making a call. “At the end of the day what was related to residents was that it’s not their responsibility to worry about jurisdictions,� said Coun. Taylor. “Even after the fact, by all means you can call the non-emergency police number or the NCC.� Taylor said the city will look at the usefulness of asking the filtration plant to mount cameras to monitor the facility’s perimeter.

Public gets heads-up on possible ‘iconic’ condo proposal Steph Willems

A Mizrahi Developments condo planned for the Yorkville neighbourhood of Toronto, seen here, gives a taste of the built form the developer is known for. swered questions as best he could given there has been no application or plan submitted to the city at this point. “We don’t put in an application (to the city) without the support of residents,” said Mizrahi. Rather than have the resi-

dents respond to the details of a pre-submitted plan and then change specifics after the fact, Mizrahi stressed that the best procedure for his company was to get a consensus on the main issues first and incorporate those ideas into the site plan. When the meeting took place

the developer had yet to consult with the area’s councilor or community associations. One resident who regularly conducts business in Toronto commended Mizrahi on his developments in that city, saying they “fit nicely” into their target neighbourhoods.

The total number of proposed units couldn’t be stated, as the developer only builds units that people want, meaning the size of individual suites will determine the final number, as will the final building height. Six and nine storeys is the height being explored at this time, but the developer admitted that something in the range of nine to 12 stories might be needed to make the project financially viable. Though objections were raised in regards to the proposed height, Mizrahi said “sophisticated architectural design that’s not normally done” would be a way to increase privacy for property owners bordering on the site. Whatever the height decided upon by the developer – which will still have to be approved through the necessary applications to the city – Mizrahi said his company’s construction practices aim to minimize noise and disruption to surrounding properties. Bella’s Bistro, the restaurant located on the parcel of land Mizrahi would like to develop, would be incorporated into the ground floor of the potential new development.

We took that to court ... and won. The Federal Court ruled in February 2013 that employers must try to accommodate workers with childcare obligations.

EMC news – Residents of Westboro and Wellington West expressed their surprise and thanks on to a Toronto-based developer that engaged them on the idea of developing a high-profile property in the area. As many of those who gathered at Fisher Park Public School on April 9 pointed out, the experience of being consulted so early in the process is not one they’re familiar with. Mizrahi Developments, which has gained a development foothold in Toronto by offering made-to-order, luxury mid-rise condo buildings, has its sights set on the northeast corner of the Wellington Street West and Island Park Drive intersection. The property currently contains a car wash and standalone two-storey building housing a restaurant. Tentatively, the developer (which constructs its own buildings and manages them afterwards) stated it would like to see buildings of six and nine storeys on the property, while preserving the corner parkette. President Sam Mizrahi an-

Given the level of traffic that exists at the Wellington/Island Park intersection -- a situation that will only get worse due to new condos already under construction -- the access point to the proposed building’s garage was the largest issue to be addressed. Island Park is gridlock at peak hours and Wellington isn’t much better, which would make access at the rear of the site via Rockhurst Road an attractive option. Residents living in that neighbourhood, which can be accessed from the much higher-capacity Scott Street, were concerned about the possibility. However, given that no concrete plans have been made, Mizrahi couldn’t say where the access point would be. “We don’t know the answer to that question, as we don’t have yet the data from (a transportation and traffic study) to assess that,” said Mizrahi. “Based on that, (traffic planners) will provide us with a solution and say that this is the best solution for traffic for the underground parking. We would then share that with everyone, get everybody’s input, and see if that’s correct.”

EMC news - As Const. Matthew Hunt eases into his new role as Centretown’s new community police officer, he said he has one goal in mind: working with the community to create a proactive response to crime. Hunt has been on the job for the past six weeks and said he has already been stretching his legs, walking around the community, getting to know business owners, community leaders and residents. “In policing you are always reacting, dealing with negative aspects,” Hunt said. “With this job, now I can be proactive and think of ways and work with the community to prevent crimes from happening.” With 13 years of experience, including the past three years working as a school resource officer, Hunt said he felt the transition from the schools to the community made perfect sense. He will continue working with youth in the new role, because the connection between youth, parents and community is important. “I look at my work as a school

resource officer and community police officer as very close to the same,” Hunt said. “With the schools you are working with individuals, working on building trust and working on how you can help them. To me, it’s the same with a community: it’s about listening and seeing how you can help.” The main areas of focus for the officer will be to work on prevention of graffiti, thefts and fraud downtown. Hunt’s move to community policing was not without a few bumps. He was to replace Const. Marc Daviault in Vanier, but after residents there raised concerns about his French skills, he was removed from the position. But when former Centretown community police officer Const. Khoa Hoang decided to move back to the beat, Hunt was offered the position. “Regardless of the office, the role of community police officer -- that is what was important to me to have,” Hunt said. He has already been stopping by community association meetings, and has met with representatives from Ottawa Community Housing and Carleton University.

Const. Matthew Hunt steps into the role as the new Centretown community police officer, bringing with him a desire to work proactively with residents and business owners to reduce crime in the downtown core. Hunt said he is a people person and will work at maintaining an in-person relationship with all the community associations, groups and residents.

“People have been very welcoming and I know that the last officer was really good so I am going to work really hard to be the same,”

Woodroffe High School initiative mixes history, civics screening of the Academy Award-winning film Argo, which provides an account of Canadian involvement in the Iranian Hostage Crisis. Students would get out of class for a small fee, which will be put towards Operation Veteran. Though the school has yet to agree to a long-term commitment, Easey is determined to see it happen, and hopes that the school’s community and co-op partners can become involved, too. “It would be great to be able to connect with veterans on the other 364 days of the year, not just Remembrance Day,” said Easey. “I really hope that we can start building something here and that it goes somewhere. It will take time.”

civics class this was an opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a charity that’s just starting.” The days covered by Operation Veteran are Remembrance Day, VE-Day (Victory in Europe), VJ-Day (Victory in Japan) and D-Day (June 6). On those dates, veterans visiting the War Museum are treated to an $11 voucher that covers a meal at the facility’s restaurant. Unlike traditional curriculum-based fundraising projects that wrap up when the school year ends, Easey wants Woodroffe’s involvement with Operation Veteran to continue even after this year’s Grade

“It started out as my idea, but it’s taken on a life of its own,” said Easey, explaining how he learned of Operation Veteran last October and thought it a worthy cause for both the school’s civics and history classes. “I called Paul and we talked for hours,” he said. “By then it was too late to do anything for Remembrance Day, but I also wanted it to be more than five students in one civics class. I thought this was an opportunity to ... combine the efforts of both departments. “Military history is a central part of the history of 20th Century Canada, and for the

10s have been replaced with fresh faces. Like the school’s annual United Way campaign, a lasting commitment would give the student body a sense of ownership and pride in the initiative. Not only that, states Easey, but students would be fundraising for a man they have already met and will assist people in their own city. “There’s more of a connection, more of a desire to do it,” said Easey. “I think a lot of kids will walk away from this with something real.” The first fundraising event planned is a school movie

EMC news - A new fundraising effort at Woodroffe High School is aiming to show that civics and history can intertwine and that compassionate charity can take place in one’s own backyard. The school’s Grade 10 civics and history students, led by social sciences co-department head Mat Easey, is raising money for Operation Veteran – a grassroots program that offers free meals to veterans at the Canadian War Museum. On Friday, students gathered to welcome the program’s creator, Montreal surgeon Dr.

Paul Kavanagh, who began funding the initiative out of his own pocket after seeing an aging veteran unable to pay for his meal one Remembrance Day. Subsequently, he began appealing to schools and student bodies across Canada answered. In a somewhat unusual move, the students themselves at Woodroffe had contacted Kavanagh and asked him to come speak at the high school. Kavanagh’s brief presentation was followed by a lengthy question-and-answer session that was also requested by students.

No mass exodus in sight

P

hil McNeely has his heart in the right place. The Ottawa-Orléans MPP has been a vocal proponent for his riding’s constituents over the past year, doing what he feels is best to protect the area’s economic, social and cultural identity. But, the Orléans politician was left floating in the political deep end with no life preserver in sight when he sent a letter to the Office of the Commissioner of Official Languages attempting to stop the move of Department of National Defence staff and military personnel to the Nortel Campus in the city’s west end. McNeely seems to think the relocation will result in a mass exodus of the Orléans francophone community. Granted, any DND employee who happens to own a house in Orléans won’t be happy with a longer commute time. But who would be? It’s a little unreasonable to ask the federal government or its agencies not to relocate its staff or set up shop in a new part of town because it will result in a longer car or bus ride for its employees. No one is forcing DND staff to move – they can choose to maintain homes in Orléans or move to a residence a little closer to the Nortel Campus. This is an economic reality that those of us who

work for private businesses face. Also, there is no way for McNeely to know how many of the affected employees currently live in Orléans, or where they would prefer to live. As for McNeely’s suggestion that the relocation threatens the francophone character of the Orléans community, that is another red herring that distracts residents from the real problem. The MPP, and his fellow east-end politicians, should focus their efforts on convincing businesses to locate in Orléans, instead of relying on strictly remaining a bedroom community for federal civil servants. After the economic downturn of 2008 and the subsequent budgetary struggles faced by the provincial and federal governments, many Ontarians are thankful simply to have jobs, never mind quibbling over having to increase commute times or change living arrangements to keep them. Pitting one end of the city against the other and attempting to beat the federal government over the head with the preserve-francophone-rights stick is counterproductive and does nothing to foster job growth in the Ottawa region. Orléans is a vibrant community with wonderful parks, recreation, transit – a great place to live, and play and do business.

Time to get ready for some geezer cinema

I

s it OK to use the word “geezer?” Perhaps it is if you are one. Somehow it seems more human than “senior” and way nicer than “elderly.” It also suggests a sense of humour which, heaven knows comes in handy. If it’s all right to continue, this column is going to be about geezer flicks – in other words, movies featuring old people. There is a small trend in this direction. Recently several movies featuring older actors have hit local screens, to the considerable appreciation of older audiences. There was Quartet, about a group of retired British musicians living in a musicians’ retirement home. People like Maggie Smith were in it, along with Tom Courtenay and Billy Connolly. Some of the jokes were about aging, but a lot of the humour came from the notion that retired people have the preoccupations they did when they were younger, the same fears and jealousies. Then there was The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, with Maggie Smith again, along with Judi Dench, Tom Wilkinson and other great British actors, living in a run-down hotel in India, each seeking something or seeking escape from something else. Both movies were funny, showing that you don’t stop laughing when you hit a certain age,

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town and both had happy endings of a sort, showing that happy endings aren’t only for the young and pretty. The ending was less happy in Away From Her, Sarah Polley’s 2006 film featuring Julie Christie as a victim of early Alzheimer’s and Gordon Pinsent as her not-entirely-noble husband. Although it sometimes seems that way, smart movies about older people are not the exclusive preserve of the British. What is encouraging about such movies is the indication their mere presence makes that geezers might actually constitute a significant market – in other words, that they cannot be ignored while the entertainment industry pursues teenagers. This shouldn’t be a surprise, when you think about it. That huge baby boom generaPublished weekly by:

tion has been marching steadily onward into old age and the front end of it is well into retirement now. More is to come. That may be a mixed blessing – the Eagles on the muzak at the retirement home – but at least it may mean better movies. For one thing, we don’t have to watch people obsessed with losing their virginity. When the flood of geezer flicks arrives, moviegoers will have to be aware of the proper way of viewing them. This involves going to your local multiplex in mid-afternoon and mid-week when the parking lot is almost empty and there are no lineups for popcorn because everyone else in the world is either at work or in school. Having made the purchase, you enter the theatre early – because geezers are always early – and look around at the 14 other people who are in it. They are all your age. There is no need to greet your fellow moviegoers, but you will be silently grateful for them because you know that none of them will be playing with their phones during the show, the ability to manipulate phones not being a highly-prized skill among this generation. They will also have not the slightest idea of the answers to the movie trivia questions that flash on the screen, none of which involve Gary

Cooper or Debra Paget. After watching previews of movies featuring explosions and making a mental note not to see them, the geezers will enjoy the movie, nod politely to each other on the way out and get home before the rush-hour traffic. That’s the way it is now but there’s always the risk that the pleasant ritual could be put at risk by the increasing popularity of geezer flicks and the increasing population of geezers. Already there are reports of crowds of more than 14 at matinees of Quartet. But geezers have met worse challenges in their long lives.

e are a culture that loves celebrity. Yet we often treat celebrities as superhuman or subhuman – never human. We admire, but we also criticize and scathe. Underlying this, my guess is, there’s a small part in all of us that would like to emulate them, and we’re also kind of jealous. But I wanted to find out – what really makes a celebrity tick? This month, I had a chance to speak with Kathy Smart, Ottawa’s newest celebrity export and the owner of Live the Smart Way. She called me from the Gluten-Free Expo in Calgary. Smart is the expo’s national spokesperson. She laughs when I mention the word celebrity. “I always knew from an early age that I would help millions of people,� Smart admits. “But I didn’t know what that would look like.� Smart was born and raised in Cornwall. Her parents were ministers. “Our vacations were missions,� says Smart. “It instilled in me this idea that you’re here on this earth to give back to others.� As a kid, Smart became very sick. She lost weight and frequently had to miss school. She was depressed. At 12, a naturopath diagnosed her with a number of food allergies, including dairy and gluten. “Within a week, I went from being very sick to a child that was full of energy and life and a kid that was anxious to one who could go to school and have friends,� said Kathy. “That’s when I realized, if you change what you eat, you can change your life.� That line became Smart’s mantra. She went forth humbly. At 19, she worked

Capital Muse for local outlets of a national grocery chain, identifying gluten-free products on mainstream shelves. When I first encountered Smart seven years ago, she was running a number of exercise and nutrition programs at the Bob MacQuarrie Recreation Complex in OrlÊans. Smart’s prospects changed a few years ago when she realized she couldn’t have children of her own. She wanted to create something, so she wrote and successfully published a best-selling gluten-free cookbook. It was a timely release that coincided with the launch of her local television program. Overnight, she went from being Ottawa’s local expert on diet and nutrition to a national celebrity. Smart has since been interviewed on every national morning TV show, she’s been

interviewed by Martha Stewart and Dr. Oz. She’s Chatelaine’s newest columnist and she’s on the verge of launching both a gluten-free product line for grocery stores and a meal line for a major travel company. Leave it to Oprah to track her down – Smart provided food for the superstar’s green room earlier this month. Despite this, I get the sense talking to Smart that she hasn’t changed a bit since her days running workshops at the community centre. How can it be that celebrity hasn’t corrupted her? I ask her all the usual questions. Is she driven by money? “I don’t care about money,� she says. What about fear? Does she have any? “I don’t really understand the question,� she says.

Ottawa & Area - If you're like most homebuyers, you have two primary considerations in mind when you start looking for a home. First, you want to find the home that perfectly meets your needs and desires, and secondly, you want to purchase this home for the lowest possible price. When you analyze those successful home buyers who have been able to purchase the home they want for thousands of dollars below a seller's asking price, some common denominators emerge. While the negotiating skills of your agent are important, there are three additional key factors that must come into play long before you ever submit an offer. This topic has been the subject of extensive analysis by Industry Experts, and a summary of their findings, and a specific step-by-step purchase plan for homebuyers, can be found in a new special

If that makes you roll your eyes, you really don’t know Smart. She’s so passionate about her mission to help others that fear is the last thing on her mind. With a bit of probing, however, she gives me the answer to the main question of my interview – which is really “how can someone like me or you, the reader, or anyone become a celebrity – or at least achieve ‘success’ in life, whatever that looks like?� “If there is fear, you have to get over that hurdle very quickly and focus on your passion,� says Smart. It’s for that reason, Smart outsources everything she’s “not good at� and surrounds herself with “smart, positive people�. At the end of the day, focusing on her main goal – changing people’s lives by changing what they eat – allows Smart to remain authentic in her mission. “I think being real is so important. I can’t walk in high heels, so I don’t even try,� she says with a laugh. I immediately picture her in sweatpants and a ponytail. “Just be you,� she says. “Trying to be somebody else is too much work.� If Smart’s anything to go by, I guess celebrities are like the rest of us – but maybe with a thicker skin and the ability to look at the bright side of life.

EMC news - Giving residents the ability to search for city services and information by neighbourhood is so important it will be the focus of a new tool that will launch on ottawa.ca in June. The map-based application called In My Neighbourhood will let people search for things like what types of swimming lessons are offered at pools near where they live, work, or go to school. It will include information on things like the hours of nearby library branches and information about local road construction projects. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a way for people to find out the service the city has that have value to them,â&#x20AC;? said Donna Gray, the director of Service Ottawa. Many of the requests for information the city receives have a location-specific focus, so it only makes sense to present information in a way that has meaning to people, Gray said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The city is defined by its geography and people relate to it through its geography,â&#x20AC;? said Rob Collins, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief information officer. The tool is part of a larger

overhaul of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mapbased software. The cumbersome and outdated eMap tool will be replaced with a slicker format the city has dubbed geoOttawa. One of the most useful features will be that the new map platform will contain up-todate data from all city departments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It means all parts of the City of Ottawa are starting to work from the same database,â&#x20AC;? instead of just looking at â&#x20AC;&#x153;snapshotsâ&#x20AC;? of the information, said Laine Wyman, project manager for the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s geographic information systems and citizen-centric projects. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t overemphasize how important this is,â&#x20AC;? he added. That will make data collection and presentation more efficient, but it also means the city -- and residents -- can do more with the information and use it in new ways, Wyman said. GeoOttawa will look like Google Maps and have mobile and light versions, which is not currently the case with eMap. EMap is part of an internal city staff tool called MAP (Municipal Application Partnership) that 2,300 city workers use to access and store information about things ranging from planning approvals to

bylaw enforcement and road inventories. MAP was brought in after amalgamation, but the underlying software itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s based on hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been supported by its manufacturer for eight years. Gaining access to MAP is an ongoing struggle between city councillors and staff. Councillors used to be able to use the system until approximately a year ago, when they were shut out of the system and forced to request city staff to look up the information on their behalf. Councillors will be getting an update about why they no longer have access to that information at the next finance and economic development committee meeting after Rideau-Rockcliffe Coun. Peter Clark brought it up during an April 10 council meeting. Mayor Jim Watson said the issue is entangled with privacy regulations related to the municipal freedom of information and protection of privacy act and the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really find that the rationale given for MFIPPA and MPAC are not intended â&#x20AC;Ś to hamper councillorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; access to information,â&#x20AC;? Clark said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not as if the members around this table are not to be trusted.â&#x20AC;?

Orléans MPP tries to block move of DND employees McNeely files complaint to language commissioner; Nepean councillor says issue is not one of language Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

EMC news - Ottawa-Orléans MPP Phil McNeely’s complaint to the commissioner of official languages turns a fiscal decision into a language issue, said College Coun. Rick Chiarelli. The move of nearly 10,000 Department of National Defence employees into the Carling Avenue campus that once housed Nortel Networks was decided three years ago. The federal government

bought the building for $208 million in 2010 and estimated there would be an additional $623 million in renovation costs to bring the building up to the Defence department’s needs. But McNeely said the federal government didn’t look at the social and economic costs of what he believes will be a mass migration to the west from Orléans. McNeely said the move would alter transit patterns because Orléans residents use public transit much more

than people in Kanata or other west-end suburbs. He added that under the Official Languages Act, the federal government is bound to protect Orléans because the community is composed of a unique, linguistic minority. Chiarelli said it wasn’t appropriate to make the move a French-versus-English debate. “Where was he three years ago when they made the decision?” Chiarelli asked. Renovations to the Moodie Drive and Robertson Road

intersection have been planned and allocated by the city, based on the planned influx of new employees on Carling Avenue, Chiarelli said, adding the city has set aside $3 million for the work. “We have spent money, done planning, now is not the time to challenge the move,” he said. But the challenge isn’t the first objection he has had, McNeely said. “I have been writing letters, and trying to halt the move for the last three years,” he said,

adding talks with lawyers are what gave him the idea to challenge the move under the Official Languages Act. “It’s not just about French versus English, it’s about the legislation,” McNeely said. “The federal government has a responsibility to protect the community of Orléans.” McNeely said the move of the RCMP headquarters to Barrhaven has already drained jobs from the eastend community. This has resulted in drops in housing starts and lower

property values, he said. Chiarelli said the city has offered incentives for businesses to set up shop in Orléans, citing the St. Joseph community improvement plan. “There isn’t as much French in the west end, but businesses will adapt to offer bilingual service,” Chiarelli said. “The province just invested millions in a francophone community centre on the site of the former Grant alternative school. Obviously they believe there is a francophone population in the west end.”

are not enough large parcels of land in the short-term supply that could be built up. The city doesn’t evaluate available employment lands the same way the private consultants did, Cross said. That’s because the city doesn’t have any indication that employers see proximity to highways as a factor that makes the spot any more desirable than other areas. And large parcels of land aren’t in demand, either, he added. The idea of giving developers flexibility to mix employment areas with some housing isn’t working, Nixey said. That category is called “enterprise” lands, and instead of resulting in a mix of residences and jobs, most of those lands are being built up with housing because it’s more profitable than offices and shops, he said. “Work-live areas are a great idea,” he said. “The problem is, it didn’t happen … In Kanata, we ended up with a bunch of townhouses.”

The enterprise category should either be scrapped entirely – something that has been discussed at city hall in the past – or new criteria should be added to ensure the jobs come to the area before homes are built. College Coun. Rick Chiarelli said the land north of the Bellwoods Estates trailer park could become a model for switching land from the “enterprise” category to employment land. A developer, Brigil Platinum, wants to do something similar in Orléans. The company’s planning consultant, Miguel Tremblay of FoTenn, said Brigil wants to expand a Cité Collegial building on North Service Road and build up around it on a 25-acre site it owns. Changing the land designation from employment lands to a mixed-use centre would allow the company to build for up to 1,100 employees, whereas the city’s designation plans for around 700 jobs. Orléans Coun. Bob

Monette was thrilled with the idea because it has the potential to bring even more jobs to his ward than the city anticipated. Orléans has a smaller proportion of available employment land than the rest of the city – about seven per cent of the supply, which will last about 20 years, said city staffer Ian Cross. RURAL EMPLOYMENT

There is enough employment land ready to develop in the rural areas to last 100 years, the study found. That’s far more than is needed, so the city should look at switching some of those lands so they can be developed for other uses, Nixey said. That will have to be done on a case-by-case basis, he said. But a guideline to follow would be to ensure there is enough space to provide a minimum of 0.75 jobs per household in large villages that are home to 2,000 or more people.

R0012038538

The topic came up as part of a discussion about whether the city has enough lands slated for the development of offices, factories and retail centres as job hubs. The city’s planning committee agreed with staff’s

conclusion that there are enough employment lands to last the city for another 40 years and dismissed a request from builders to expand the areas zoned for employment development. The committee asked for a detailed presentation on April 9 after getting a grilling from

Old organ, hymns offer comforting sounds of Sunday

T

he organist at the Lutheran church did her best, but when Aunt Lizzie came from Regina on her yearly visit, she never failed to comment on how the old organ needed a tuning. She once added, “maybe what is needed is a new organist.” Well, the chance of getting anyone to replace the organist out there in Northcote was just about nil and the possibility of getting the instrument tuned was just as remote. The woman who sat on the little swivel stool every Sunday played for the satisfaction it gave her and other than a few words of praise from the minister at the Strawberry Social in the summer that was all the pay she got. The organ looked like it had gone through the war.

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories When I was very young, sitting right behind it, I often thought a ghost lived in it because for a few seconds after the last note was played, there was a wheezing sound come out of it, like someone drawing his last breath. There was a single row of plugs that looked like spools of thread and even from a distance I could see printing on them. These “plugs” often seemed to confuse the organist, who would push and pull at them, which created more wheezing, or no sound at all.

One Sunday, in her frustration, she pulled and pushed the same “plug” and the whole thing came out in her hand. She simply placed it on top of the organ and there didn’t seem to be a whit of difference in the sound, even without the missing part. I noticed it sat on top of the organ for weeks before someone removed it, and it was never replaced or seen again. The yawning hole where the “plug” had once been remained for as long as we went to the Lutheran

church. The foot pedals held a special fascination for me. There were two side by side. At one time they were covered in tapestry, but they had worn away to the perfect shape of the organist’s black laced shoes, which told me she had been playing for longer than I was alive. I thought she must be very old indeed, just like the organ. Since there was no other place to put them, at special services bouquets of flowers sat on a little round disc on the side of the organ. My older sister Audrey said that was where a lamp was placed if there was something going on in the church at night so the organist could see the keys. Flowers were placed there at Easter and at Christmas and I used to think it would be nice if someone brought flowers every week. But of course, that would never do for a staid and sober congregation like the Lutherans at Northcote. We hardly ever saw the face of the organist. Her back was to the pews and I often spent most of the service trying to count the number

of big grey hairpins that held the fat bun at the back of her head. The bun hid her neck and one Sunday I got the giggles which I had trouble controlling when I thought her head looked like a turnip sitting on a narrow clothcovered shelf. Audrey had to give me a few pokes with her finger to get me to sober up. We never knew if there was going to be a choir. It didn’t seem to be organized to the point where you could expect to see the same faces every Sunday, even though once a week there was supposed to be choir practice. Who showed up on those nights depended on other events going on in the community which were considered more important. We could always count on one dedicated soul who never failed to sit in the very middle of the little row of straight-backed chairs on the small platform at the front of the church. She often drowned out the organist and one Sunday she was singing one hymn while the organist was playing something entirely different. Both went on doing their own thing, as the minister sat in the big

high backed velvet chair with is eyes closed, rubbing his forehead. Audrey had a lovely voice, but she was very shy about singing alone. She had no trouble at the Northcote School when we belted out God Save the King every morning, but singing in church was a different kettle of fish. When she was ordered by Mother to do so, her knees shook like a bowl of jelly, sitting beside me in our pew. But when she got the first three or four notes out, she sang like a bird. I would look around the church as if to say, “that’s my sister, you know.” The old organ, the organist who lived in Northcote and never missed a Sunday, the familiar hymns, the voices raised in praise and the tattered hymn books all created a warm and comfortable feeling deep in my heart. Like the neighbours around us, always there when a hand was needed, the sounds of the organ and the voices raised in praise, gave me a safe feeling, enabling me to shut out all else around me, and on Sunday, even the Depression seemed remote and far away.

Local artists sought for second Nuit Blanche Noctournal creative celebration bringing events to Gatineau for latest edition Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC entertainment - Whether it’s talent with a paint brush, a camera or a flair for performance art, Nuit Blanche is looking for artists to take part in this year’s fall event. Nuit Blanche Ottawa + Gatineau is putting the word out to all local French and English artists to send in their applications to participate in this year’s night-long event. “For us the goal of Nuit Blanche is for people to go outside and see art differently, whether it’s on the side of buildings or in galleries,” said Ariane Nazroo, art director for the festival. The call for artists will begin at the end of April, with those interested in applying directed to do so at nuitblancheottawagatineau.ca. The application period will last for six weeks. In the fall of 2012, Nuit Blanche Ottawa took place for the first time in the capital, as a one night-only affair based on similar events in Toronto and Montreal. The funding and organization was provided by BRA-

VO-Est, which received a grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation. Taking place in the Byward Market and Westboro, visitors had the opportunity to observe local art in all its forms from 6 p.m. to 4 a.m. Nazroo said the inaugural event was a success from both a resident and organization perspective, but BRAVO declined to continue participating in the event, choosing instead to focus on French-related programming. Not to be discouraged Nazroo and Megan Smith, a curator for Nuit Blanche 2012, decided to take over the reigns. The two have incorporated Nuit Blanche and set up a board of directors, but have yet to identify a source of funding. A number of grants applied for and while they wait on word for funding, the pair have decided to donated their time. “We wanted to make sure it would happen again this year,” Nazroo said. The group will work with both cities and local organizations, including reaching out to local businesses

Nuit Blanche Ottawa sees artists and art lovers together for one long night in the fall. Last year, artists yarn-wrapped Para Transpo Bus in a Hintonburg parking lot. for sponsorship opportunities. The inaugural event featured 160 projects in two areas of the city that were viewed by a total of 30,000 people. There were multiple familyfriendly events, gallery showings and

performance art to visit and observe and this year, the organizers say the intention is to bring back all the success of last year and to expand the festival to include sites in Gatineau. The art director presented preliminary plans to the Lowertown Com-

munity Association on April 8. “It’s really a community-based event,” Nazroo said. “That’s why I wanted to meet with you guys.” Residents who attended the meeting were pleased with the news the event would be taking place again this year. “I remember how important and terrific last year, the first year, was,” said Norman Moyer. “The feeling was wonderful and it was such a family event.” Nazroo said having a family-friendly event is again a priority, with a kid zone to be placed in Westboro, with those events ending at around 1 a.m. The Byward Market and downtown Gatineau would host adult-oriented events coming to an end at 4 a.m. Shuttles would move people to and from the different artist zones. Last year the shuttles were provided by 417 Bus line, but this year the goal is to partner with OC Transpo and STO to ensure more people can ride the shuttles more frequently. “We want to have three major shuttle stops and more shuttles to move people around the downtown more quickly,” Nazroo said. The Lowertown association said they would love to stay involved in the organization’s planning process and looked forward to working with Nazroo and Smith. th

New hotel set for ByWard Market Residents worry condo-hotel complex presents threat to area’s heritage Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Downtown Ottawa is set to get its first new hotel in about three decades – but it’s at the expense of a heritage building, according to the Lowertown Community Association. A Claridge Homes plan to build a 22-storey condo tower on George Street and add four storeys to the Union du Canada office tower and convert it into a hotel got the thumbs up from planning committee members on April 9. Adding even more height to a 1960s building that already “sticks out like a sore thumb” doesn’t make sense, said ByWard Market resident Louise Hout. “This mistake should not be amplified by allowing an extra four storeys,” she said. But the city already decided to allow a taller building to be constructed on that site, so nothing shorter than the original Union du Canada build-

ing would ever be built there, said Katherine Grachuta, a planner working on behalf of Claridge. Hout and other community members worried that allowing taller buildings close to the centre of the heritage district would set a precedent of allowing towers to infiltrate the historic core of the ByWard Market. The march of condo towers into the market also troubled community association member Sylvio Granger, who told the committee that the market will become “hell on earth” if more condos are allowed to bring more residents into the market without changes to the streets and sidewalks. “We’re building a whole lot of towers around, but our streets haven’t changed a bit. We’re getting more and more traffic,” Granger said. “It won’t be livable and walkable for a long time.” Claridge’s application asked for changes to parking requirements. There will

be 227 underground parking spaces shared between the condo and the hotel, which includes providing no parking spots dedicated to the hotel and a reduction in the visitor parking for the condo. There will also be enough parking space for 152 bicycles and transit use is encouraged by the site’s proximity to transit stations, the city staff report says. Another community association member, Mario Gaspereti, made the argument that the extra height isn’t necessary because Claridge could hit the city’s targets for density and job creation within the existing zoning. Grachuta said it’s a good thing if the development can help the city reach its density targets and those numbers shouldn’t be looked at on a site-by-site basis, but rather in the downtown area as a whole. The planning committee chairman, Alta Vista Coun. Peter Hume, was focused on the hotel aspect of the project. Low hotel vacancy rates show that a new lodging space is needed, he said. Hume asked Claridge president Neil Malhotra to explain why the con-

struction of a hotel, which the city desires, is so dependent on Claridge being allowed to construct a 22-storey condo tower as part of the overall project. Outdoor amenity spaces are also a priority, he said. Community members like Liz MacKenzie cautioned that amenity spaces need to be designed carefully to ensure they are safe and don’t encourage panhandlers and clients of nearby shelters to settle in there. Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathiew Fleury, the local representative, could not comment on the project due to a conflict of interest because his father works for Claridge.

SUBMITTED/CLARIDGE

Claridge got the planning committee’s approval to make the Union du Canada building taller and turn it into a hotel and to build a 22-storey, 282-unit condo tower beside it. This view from the corner of Dalhousie and George shows the Union du Canada building on the left and condo on the right.

Station who sells grass-fed beef to more than 200 clients in the Ottawa area, said the introduction of the modified plant doesn’t make sense. “Farmers don’t want it and I know my consumers don’t want it,” he said. “We have to ask ourselves who is making the decisions around what kind of food we eat, why on earth is this being legitimized and being commercialized in Canada?”

EMC news - The release of genetically-modified alfalfa could be the last straw for a dwindling bee population, said bee keeper Susan Hamilton. Hamilton, along with four dozen farmers from across Ottawa and the valley came out to protest the potential release of herbicide tolerant alfalfa at the Canadian Food Inspection Agency headquarters in Nepean on April 9. “We have had bees since 1973 and the population is dwindling already,” Hamilton said. “This will eventually kill them off.” Hamilton added that pollinating the alfalfa genetically modified to include the herbicide Roundup could hurt and eventually kill bees. Forage Genetics International has applied Monsanto’s Roundup Ready technology to alfalfa and Canada already approved it for health and environmental release in 2005. Variety registration with the agency is the last step before it can become commercially available. Demonstrators with the National Farmers Union and the Canadian Biotechnology Action Network hoped to halt the process by letting the powers that be know how they and consumers feel. Alfalfa is a high-protein feed for dairy cows, beef cattle, lambs, poultry and pigs, but because labelling for genetically modified crops is not mandatory in Canada, it’s unlikely consumers will know they are eating altered crops. Lucy Sharratt, a co-ordinator with the action network, said 38 communities across the country organized demonstrations in a four-week period. “Seventeen communities in eastern Ontario were holding demonstrations today,” she said, adding eastern Canada is where the geneticallymodified alfalfa would be rolled out first. Lauretta Rice, whose son runs a dairy farm in Douglas, Ont., went to the protest because she said the introduction of the Monsanto technology would kill off the more than 200 varieties of the plant that her son produces locally. Alfalfa is a perennial plant that is pollinated. The introduction of a genetically-modified strain will crosspollinate with organic forms and threaten the livelihood of local farmers, she said. The Canadian Forage and Grassland Association released a report the potential impact of Roundup Ready alfalfa on Canada’s forage industry in June 2012. “The introduction of RRA, and subsequent GE (genetically-engineered) alfalfa traits, into Canada

Alex Munter, CHEO president and chief excutive officer, is troubled by a recent report released by UNICEF. While Canada has come a long way in terms of changing its views on mental health, Munter said there is still much more that needs to be done to overcome stigma. “We need to talk about mental health more than we do today. We need to invest in evidence-based mental health programs that improve the lives of youth and children. We must establish mental health as a pillar of child and youth health care delivery. “Doing so will help Canada make important gains to the benefit of our next generation and generations to come.” UNICEF said the current findings show progress, but warned that the study was carried out before many countries implemented austerity measures and budget cuts implemented in the years since the 2008 world-wide economic crisis.

EMC news - A new report released by UNICEF paints a gloomy picture for Canadian children compared to kids in other wealthy countries. The report on the well-being of children ranks Canada 17th out of 29 countries, a score that hasn’t improved for almost a decade. The country scored below average grades for child poverty, and obesity and children’s life satisfaction. “The fact that our children rank in the bottom half when compared to other industrialized nations simply isn’t good enough,” David Morley, UNICEF Canada’s president and chief executive officer said in a release. “It is clear Canada can do better. Protecting and promoting the wellbeing of our children must become a national priority,” Particularly concerning is that Canada’s overall ranking drops seven places to 24th when children’s views of their own life satisfaction are measured. Only five countries, all from Eastern Europe, rank lower than Canada in this category. Morley said listening to children’s voices, even at the youngest ages, and knowing more about how they see and evaluate their own lives is critical to improving children’s well-being. “Considering the size and general health of our economy when compared to the difficult recessions other countries in this report have experienced, it is clear Canada is not doing enough and needs to invest more in our children.” The report called for a clearer picture of the investment being made in children and ensuring the rights of children are prioritized in policy decisions with the use of child’s rights impact assessments. CHEO president and chief executive officer Alex Munter said he was troubled by the report. “The findings reflect a similar trend we have been seeing here at CHEO,” Munter said in a statement. “Changing Canada’s outcomes will require a rethinking of how we invest in young people and how we approach mental health as a central contributor to their well-being. It will require the engagement of public policy makers at all levels to take real action in an effort to improve outcomes.” He said the areas where Canada lags contribute to the increased complexity of children’s health problems and outcomes. “Obesity, poverty, substance abuse and poor life satisfaction are all linked to one another and are, from our hospital’s perspective, making health care delivery more complex.” The report identifies high levels of cannabis use as an area of concern. “There is a strong link between drug use and mental illness that must be addressed in our society and through public policy,” said Munter.

Capital councillor wants extra notice for home conversions Chernushenko hoping his ward can be part of Sandy Hill pilot project Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Similar to a pilot project in Sandy Hill, Capital Coun. David Chernushenko is asking the city to require more checks and balances before builders are allowed to convert homes into multiple units in his ward. The request follows a brouhaha over the conversion of a home on Aylmer Street in Old Ottawa South. While the city’s zoning rules allow the single-

family home to be converted to several apartments, neighbours were angry because they saw the change as incompatible with the neighbourhood. Since the changes are completely allowed, neighbours aren’t entitled to any notice, which exacerbated their frustration, Chernushenko said. Forcing builders to get site plan approval before converting a home would at least mean neighbours would have to be notified, Chernushenko said.

“I know that’s not enough,” he said. There are other opportunities to address this issue in a way that changes city policy, such as through the next phase of the infill design guidelines. But in the meantime, requiring builders to file for site plan approval if homes are being converted to four or more units will be a reasonable stopgap measure, the councillor said. “I couldn’t pick one of my main communities and say, ‘Oh, that’s not affecting

them,’ ” Chernushenko said. “The fact is we’re seeing conversions happening.” He called it a “partial delay tactic, partial negotiating opportunity and partially a chance for the community to at least know what is happening.” The issue is a reminder to residents that they must keep informed about the type of redevelopment that’s allowed under the zoning on their street, Chernushenko said. “I guess you could say if you feel you have the right to object to something you also have the responsibility to be

informed about whether it was allowed or not,” he said. Chernushenko said there is a public skepticism around zoning because of a perception the city seems willing to change the zoning at a property-owner’s request. So knowing the zoning of neighbouring properties isn’t seen as something that would necessarily help a resident understand what might end up being built there. Still, some residents have a tendency to ignore what type of development is already allowed in their neighbourhood until it becomes an “unwelcome surprise” right next

door. Including Capital Ward in the conversion site plan pilot project might give longtime property owners the information they need to take advantage of the revenue opportunities they are already entitled to, whether it means selling their home or converting it to add an apartment for more income, Chernushenko said. “We see the pressures for change and the economic benefit to developers, and I have to throw in there, to individual residents who own a home and might feel like, ‘Hey, here is my chance,’” he said.

Rideau Street construction gets back underway Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

Chapel to King Edward. Eastbound traffic will be rerouted to St. Patrick Street via King Edward. OC Transpo buses headed east towards Vanier will be diverted off Rideau at King Edward and directed one block

south to Besserer Street. Once reaching Chapel, drivers can turn north and get back on Rideau. The project is meant to create a more attractive pedestrian- and cyclist-friendly street in order to maximize

transportation options before construction on the light rail tunnel begins next year. With new condos popping up along Rideau as well, upgrades are also being made to water mains and sewers as well. Construction from Chapel

EMC news - For drivers heading downtown from the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s east end, the trip is a little more complicated now that construction on Rideau Street

has started up again. Work got underway on April 15, closing Rideau from King Edward Avenue to Chapel Street. Traffic heading westbound towards downtown can still take Rideau, but it will be reduced to a single lane, from

to Cummings Bridge is expected to start in late May or early June. The detours and traffic diversion will remain the same. The construction marks the continuation of the first phase of a $28.9-million project to replace aging infrastructure, improve water mains, sewers, city services, landscaping and public art.

Jerika Bradford, right, and Melissa Lefebvre stand in front of the Canadian Wildlife Federation’s head office. CWF is hosting a walk at Fletcher Wildlife Garden May 4 for the Walk for Wildlife campaign.

Canadian Wildlife Federation holds annual Walk for Wildlife tyler.costello@metroland.com

EMC news – With the goal of having Canadians connect with nature, the Canadian Wildlife Federation is holding its fourth annual Walk for Wildlife. It’s about getting Canadians coast to coast back outside, said Jerika Bradford from the federation, who is organizing the Walk for Wildlife event in Ottawa. “When people see how great nature is, they will be more likely to come back,” said Bradford who also said spending time outdoors enjoying nature can help reduce your stress levels. The federation’s goal is to have over 15,000 kilometres logged on their website before the walk officially ends on May 22. Last year walkers logged over 12,000 kilometres. The “walk” officially started April 7 and only two days later

walkers from across the country had already logged over 3,400 kilometres online. Bradford said that federation anticipates beating the 15,000 kilometre mark by the end of April. Although CWF has several organized walks across Canada, walkers can log kilometers from walks they take on their own time. If you walk your dog in the evening or go for a jog, you can log it, said Bradford. Those wishing to participate further can also organize group walks which can then be listed on the federation’s website for others to see. Ottawa’s official walk will take place at the Fletcher Wildlife Garden on May 4 from 10 am till noon; registration will start at 9:30. Fletcher Wildlife Garden, located off Prince of Wales near the Arboretum, features several butterfly meadows, woodlots and an amphibian

pond. “It’s a great location because it’s accessible to everyone and its pet friendly,” said Bradford. The wildlife federation is also looking for volunteers to help with their native species garden located at their head office in Kanata. Their garden, which avoids pesticides and aims to conserve water, features a hummingbird bed, a shade bed and a drought bed. Volunteers are needed for the usual tasks of weeding, watering and digging but the federation is also looking for photographers and individuals with computer and research skills willing to help out. If you are interested in volunteering at the garden you can send an e-mail to cwf-gardener@cwf-fcf.org. Anyone looking for more information about the Walk for Wildlife campaign you can visit the website at WalkforWildlife.ca.

Elgin Street cut-through road to be eliminated Glebe site near canal to be turned into public space Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Glebe and Old Ottawa East residents are breathing a sigh of relief that a dangerous intersection at Elgin Street at Queen Elizabeth Drive is set to be fixed starting this fall. Most significantly, the construction will eliminate the “cut-through” continuation of Elgin Street and instead convert it into an asphalt cycling path to connect Elgin Street and Centretown to the Queen Elizabeth Drive and Rideau Canal pathway in the Glebe. The communities will also get a bigger “pocket park” and bicycling link out of the construction project, which is actually spurred by a need to replace a 1934-era water main that extends from Isabella

Street to the Pretoria Bridge, as well as a watermain extension along the south end of Elgin that was installed in 1896. Old Ottawa East residents, especially parent Jamie Girard, breathed a sigh of relief upon being told the changes are intended to make it safer to cross from the Pretoria Bridge to stores on Isabella Street. Right now, there is only a yield sign for fast-moving cars, and on top of that, there is no curb cut to allow parents like her to wheel strollers that way, Girard said, no to mention what wheelchairs must contend with. The changes will mean she no longer has to take her car a couple minutes down the road to get groceries, Girard said. “It meets the needs of all users, especially local users in a more sustainable, safer way,” Chernushenko said. Several Old Ottawa East community members, including Ron Rose, asked why the city can’t put planters or something else to block off the Elgin cut-through for the sum-

mer if the city has determined it is unsafe. Chernushenko said he’s pushed for that, but he was told it can’t be done safely without the rest of the planned intersection modifications. The communities – and the councillor – were a bit unclear about what kind of consultation still needs to happen before the construction moves forward. According to an email from city staff, approvals for the project were already on file. It was discussed several years ago, but put on hold, so community association approval was dated to 2007 and the councillor’s consent for the project is already on file from last summer. That means the project will move forward as planned by city staff. That didn’t bother members from either community association, who are very pleased with the changes. “We’re all for it,” said Lynn Barlow, president of the Glebe Community Association. Plans for what will happen

The ‘A’ marker shows the extension of Elgin Street that will be eliminated and converted into a cycling lane as part of a huge watermain reconstruction project and intersection safety changes slated to begin this fall. with the green space that separates the TD Bank on Isabella Street from Queen Elizabeth Drive won’t come until later. Park improvements aren’t within the scope or funding of the watermain and road construction project, according to an email from city staff, so any park plans would come later.

PET OF THE WEEK

Barlow said the Glebe Community Association has previously discussed options for buffering the green space from the drive by building up a berm or installing a fence. There has also been discussion about including some sort of play structures there, but that was met with skepticism

in Old Ottawa East due to the pocket park’s location, as it is surrounded by well-travelled roads. Old Ottawa East residents are hoping for some benches and perhaps even a water fountain so the space could become a resting spot on their walks to the grocery store.

Prince is neutered male, black Labrador Retriever and Great Dane mix who is about 9 years old. Prince was brought to the shelter as a stray on February 14, and is now available for adoption. Prince loves to meet and greet everyone. He has a preference for human companionship but may be able to share his home with another respecting pooch who isn’t intimidated by

his size. Give Prince a chance and he’d love to flaunt his social tendencies. Prince will need a family with children 12 years and older who will actively participate in helping him perfect how to keep all four paws on the ground. He will need a family that will bring him on all their adventures, as he is no couch potato. Abe is a neutered male, orange tabby

Abe loves to have his belly rubbed. He has a very calm cat with an agreeable disposition that would make a great companion for humans of all ages, as long as they are gentle with him. Abe would rather not have other cats share his space. He has so much love to give that he’ll be the only feline companion you’ll ever need!

Visit a Veterinarian No matter how old, you want to be assured by a veterinarian that your new companion has a good bill of health. A visit to the vet can also help you understand your new pet’s needs. Remember that your pet should be examined and vaccinated yearly in order to prevent disease.

Hello friends, I’m Mack, also known as Mackie-Noodle, Mack-Attack, Mack-a-roni, Sponge Mack-Hair-Pants, or Mister Mack. I love everybody and as such, you will receive a proper greeting when I meet you; this involves a lot of licking and then covering you with hair. I was living at a local rescue when my family came to get me in the summer, and boy am I happy to not live in a cage. I can run and play and go on great adventures everyday with my mom and dad. My feline brother is quite accommodating and doesn’t mind me eating some of his toys and playing with him in his tunnel, although I can only manage to squeeze my head in. St. Patrick’s Day is my birthday and I will celebrate it with all of my friends and family and eat as many Pup-cakes as I desire…which is a LOT!

Annual Tulipathon helps housing for all michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - When it comes to building community and creating a place to call home, one charitable organization prides itself in bringing faith, family and friends together to make it happen. The Multifaith Housing Initiative is an affordable housing charity that connects volunteers from different faith communities from across the city with families or individuals who are at risk or experiencing homelessness in order to help them find a rental home. The initiative allows multiple faith communities, volunteers and donors to reduce the number of people living on the streets or in shelters. The initiative owns 40 units in three buildings in Vanier and Centretown and in order to maintain and expand those operations, the organization is holding its annual Tulipathon fundraising event on May 5 from 3 to 5 p.m. Micah Garten is the organization’s fundraising manager and he is currently working to put the final touches on the day’s events. “It’s a nice event, and probably the one and only event where

The organization has 90 tenants in the 40 units and the campaign goal is to add another 40 units. The housing is not exclusive to one faith or one demographic. Although there are a lot of families who have found placement in one of the initiative’s buildings, the group works with se-

niors, students, low-income and seasonal workers to find them housing. All the existing units are full, Garten said, so expanding the number of units is the only way to successfully help more people in need. Celebrating its 15th year, the walkathon event raised $27,000 last year. This year, Garten said the group is looking to beat that

Over the course of a year, Garten said the organization’s volunteers can log more than 5,000 hours helping tenants, performing duties such as housing management, event planning, fundraising, finance management and human resources. The organization provides below-market rent to its tenants. That number is varied, depending on ability, but the goal is to have tenants take pride in their homes. Garten said it would be simple math, with more rental units, the more overhead the organization can cover on its own.

port was 10 years ago, but all the main lines were exactly the same: retail, bars, homelessness, market management and parking,” Fleury said. “We couldn’t get all the departments to see the issues ... we needed that buy-in from different departments.” The possibility of establishing an independent body to oversee management of the market is something Fleury is particularly excited about. It’s a model that’s used successfully in Montreal to operate the Jean-Talon market, which Fleury visited last year

while gathering observations about how districts similar to the ByWard Market operate in other cities. At the moment, operations of the vendors and market square retailers are managed by a city licensing department called markets management. “It’s a very enforcement-driven arm of the city,” Fleury said. “We’re not removing ourselves from the responsibility, but we want it to be done in conjunction with the farmers.” Incentives to protect the food-retail history of the district could include

Re-investing in the ByWard Market and putting management of its market square and stalls into the hands of a non-profit group are two of the recommendations in a newly released report aimed at ‘saving’ the historic district.

things like tax breaks or offering parking rebates for people who show grocery receipts, the report states. Managing the market’s growth as a nightlife district – a point of contention for the neighbours and the merchants’ association – will be key, the report states. A need to address safety issues and impacts related to homelessness and services for at-risk populations are also acknowledged in the report. Many of the market’s public spaces become hang-outs for homeless people who “control the space and discourage other uses,” the report states. Project for Public Spaces emphasized in its report that “saving” the market won’t be an overnight process. Ongoing leadership, funding and co-operation between stakeholders will make or break the project in the long term. The report is expected to go to committee in May. If it’s approved, it would give city staff direction to pursue some of the ideas further. Any initiatives the city wants to accomplish will have to be part of future budgets because there is no implementation money attached to this report. The report was initially withheld because the city didn’t want to release it until there was a proposed action plan attached, Fleury said. “Now we’re re-opening it for consultation,” he said.

Use neighbourhood pride to combat crime, workshop hears Jennifer McIntosh

jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

EMC community - Police, social service workers, residents and politicians learned about the power of the community during a crime prevention workshop at Immaculata High School on April 6. Jim Diers, a U.S.-based consultant on participatory democracy was the workshop’s keynote speaker. The event was hosted by Crime Prevention Ottawa, an organization that works to engage residents and property owners in crime prevention strategies. He said the feeling of community is losing out to things like television and travel to and from work. “People say they don’t have time to get involved, but they spend three or four hours a day in front of a screen,” Diers said. To combat television and disinterest Diers said the trick is to make getting involved in your community fun. “A lot of people don’t sign up for projects because they think they will have to go to a lot of meetings,” he said.

“You sign up for a project and you’re sentenced to a lifetime of meetings. No wonder television is winning.” Diers said the traditional role of hosting a meeting to talk about issues like crime tends to attract the same kind of people – meaning those attending neighbourhood association meetings don’t represent the make up of the neighbourhood. “Organizers should look at who isn’t attending a meeting, they could have interesting solutions,” he said. “My friend who is a duck hunter used to say, ‘we only use loon calls then we wonder why a bunch of loons show up.’” Ottawa police Chief Charles Bordeleau said initiatives like the Vanier Business Improvement Area (BIA) annual awards are great because they celebrate the work businesses do in the community. “I go to a lot of events and it’s great to see barbecues in Carlingwood celebrating Neighbourhood Watch volunteers and other neighbourhoods congratulating those who get involvement,” he said. Residents from across the

Police Chief Charles Bordeleau discusses the role of community-based initiatives like neighbourhood watch programs in crime prevention as part of a panel of speakers at the Community Solutions: Beautification Today, Safer Tomorrow workshop. city attended the workshop at Immaculata, hoping to connect with other residents and service organizations that operate at the grassroots level. One 16-year-old resident of Bayshore asked how to motivate the members of her community. “Throw a party, ask people what they would like to see in

their neighbourhood, find out what their passions are,” Diers said. He said residents need to be connected by their passions. He added that too often we focus on the deficit of our community, and forget about the positives. “Social service organizations tend to go into a com-

munity and do a needs assessment, and that has a place, but we also need to remember the local connections that we have to offer,” Diers said. One example Diers used was of Lake Street in Minneapolis. The street’s stores were vacant and there was a lot of criminal activity at night. A group of residents came together and formed a co-operative of businesses. One resident, who became president of the co-op, ended up opening a chain of tamale restaurants. The co-operative ended up purchasing a building on Lake Street and running a number of Mexican-themed shops. Later, a group of Somalian residents followed suit and now there is an international commercial centre on the street that brings tourists from all over. In Diers’ own neighbourhood of Columbia City of Seattle, there was a similar project. Vacant businesses were creating spaces for drug dealing and prostitution. Diers said the decline started with the introduction of big-box stores that started to

close down the smaller businesses. “We had to do something, and there was an incredible network of faith-based groups and residents willing to pitch in,” he said. The first step was to get the restaurants to stay open at night. A lot of the restaurants only served lunch because the criminal activity at night was a deterrent for potential clientele. Residents organized a beat night, where each restaurant had a different kind of music, getting people out on the street. “It was so popular that it now happens every week,” Diers said. And added traffic on the streets means more customers and customers attract new business. College Coun. Rick Chiarelli, who attended the Crime Prevention Ottawa workshop, said one of the ideas – painting the front of vacant businesses to mimic ice cream shops or hair salons as a business driver – is something he plans to talk about at the next meeting of the Bells Corners BIA.

Aries, take time to sort through some of the paperwork on your desk. You could find there is something important that you overlooked that needs to be addressed. There are a few things you can’t seem to work out in your head, Taurus. A better idea may be to put everything on paper and perhaps the answer will jump out. Gemini, there will be a few moments this week when you seem to have a breakthrough. Maybe it’s in a relationship or you have just the right answers at work. Surprising events are in store as you continue to change your views about life-altering events, Cancer. You may find your master plan is entirely turned on its head.

Leo, your energy level is so revved up that others won’t be able to keep up with you. You may have to slow down a little to let others catch up. Virgo, others find it difficult to change your opinion once you have your mind set on something. But it still helps to consider if the direction you’re heading is the right way.

Libra, you may be feeling a little homesick, especially if you are away on business or on vacation. Try to make the most of the situation even if you’re feeling nostalgic. Scorpio, if it seems like nothing is going your way, keep in mind there is a master plan in the works. You may not be able to see the resolution, but just be patient. Sagittarius, there are a few puzzle pieces that you need to get into place and then you’ll have everything worked out. Reward yourself with a night out. Capricorn, lay low for awhile rather than drumming up some trouble. Tempting as it is to stir the pot, it may cause more difficulties for you in the long run. Aquarius, although you have a few projects on your to-do list, you can’t seem to get started. Instead of looking at the entire list, tackle one task at a time and you’ll get the job get done. Pisces, turn your thoughts to creative efforts and you’ll find the days will just fly by. Before you know it, the weekend will be here.
