Proposal for 18-storey Hintonburg tower finally submitted to city Steph Willems

Steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - An 18-storey condo proposed for the block north of the Parkdale Market will go to planning committee later this month. The development, proposed by Tega Homes, has gone through several revisions over the past couple of years, but never met with significant community approval. Residents are awaiting now a staff report on the proposal that is expected to be handed down the week before the June 25 planning committee date. Hintonburg Community Association president Jeff Leiper said he was notified of the impending date by the office of Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs. Leiper said the overall Lshape design of the building and 18-storey height remains in the proposal, though a number of small changes have been made to setbacks, building materials and first-floor design. Those changes don’t seem like they’ll be enough to satisfy a community that made its views heard at a Feb. 28 public meeting with the project’s architect and developers. The opposition to the proposal’s height stems from a recently-approved community design plan for the area, See PROPOSAL, page 23

PUBLIC NOTICE Actress Sandra Oh to receive Key to the City Why drive... EMC news - Ottawa-born actress Sandra Oh will be presented with the Key to the City by Mayor Jim Watson in recognition of her significant contributions and accomplishments, both nationally and internationally, in the field of the performing arts. On July 8, Oh will receive the key in a ceremony at city hall. “Sandra Oh has earned accolades as a talented actress who is dedicated to her craft and respected by both peers and critics alike,” said Watson. “We are proud to call her Ottawa’s own, and have her serve as a role model to aspiring performing artists in Ottawa and around the world.” Born in Nepean, Oh got her start on stage as a ballet dancer at the age of four, but shifted focus to acting after performing in the Knoxdale Public School play The Canada Goose, when she was 10. Oh was involved in arts, sports and politics at Sir Robert Borden High School where she served as student council president and founded the environmental club Borden Active Students for the Environment. While still attending the National Theatre School of Canada, Oh competed with 1,000 hopefuls for the lead role in The Diary of Evelyn Lau. She got the part and the Cannes FIPA d’Or for Best Actress for her portrayal of the young Chinese-Canadian poet. She later starred in the stage productions of David Mamet’s Oleanna at the Grand Theatre in London, Ont., and the National Arts Centre, Diana Son’s Stop Kiss and Satellites at New York’s Public Theatre and Jessica Hagedorn’s Dogeaters at La Jolla Playhouse.

Hydro Ottawa provided a rare glimpse inside one of Canada’s oldest operating run-of-the-river hydroelectric generating stations on June 1st and 2nd. Hundreds turned out for free tours of the historic building, located on Victoria Island. The facility was opened to the public as part of Doors Open Ottawa. Brought to the community by the City of Ottawa, it is the city’s largest heritage and architectural event, giving visitors a rare opportunity to visit inside some of Ottawa’s most prestigious buildings and facilities. “Chaudière Falls is in the heart of Canada’s National Capital and has great historical significance,” said Bryce Conrad, President and CEO of Hydro Ottawa. “It fueled the industrial explosion of the mid 1800s by providing the water power for the vast complex of lumber mills that generated electricity that drove railroads and factories in the area after 1885.” Hydro Ottawa owns and operates three generating stations at Chaudière Falls. Generating Station No. 2 was originally built in 1891 by industrialist E.H. Bronson. The Bronson family was a leader in lumber-related industry in the Ottawa Valley. In 2001, the station was completely rebuilt. All of the generators were rewound, the turbines were replaced, the channels and dam structures rehabilitated and the station completely automated. However, all of the heritage elements of the station were preserved and the equipment looks as it did 100 years ago. “It’s a unique opportunity to share the history of this site with the community,” said Conrad. “Not only did visitors get to tour this historic building, but they also learned how renewable hydroelectricity is produced.”

Realtors renew push for grow-op registry Laura Mueller

And the list doesn’t acknowledge the real number of growing operations that the police may never find out about. At any give time, it is estimated there are 300 to 400 active grow ops in Ottawa, police have told Verge. Another recent local improvement was a bylaw passed last fall that will force people who own homes that become grow ops to pay for them to be fixed. Verge said she gives the city credit for working to address the issue. “But we need provincial leadership on this problem,” she said. “It isn’t just in Ottawa where people are unknowingly purchasing former grow ops and clandestine laboratories – it’s right across Ontario.” There are ways to find out about the history of a home – for a price. Websites like iverify. com provide home histories, but they charge a fee. That information should be publically accessible, Verge said. The best way to do that would be to register the fact that it was a grow op – and that it has been repaired – on the home’s title.

Mutchmor parking solution still up in the air Residents, city, board working to find fix to problem Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Before the Ottawa District School Board turns a portion of Mutchmor Public School’s yard into a parking lot, the Glebe Community Association has asked the board and city to work together on finding a better solution. The Ottawa District School Board is preparing to renovate and expand Mutchmor Public School in the Glebe to deal with overcrowding in downtown schools, part of a plan commonly known as “the switch.” The “switch” would swap programs and school populations between two Glebe public schools and add 11 classrooms to Mutchmor. As a result of these plans, the association has asked for space to accommodate school staff parking at the cityowned lot located between Second and Third avenues, west of Bank Street. Sharon Chartier of the Glebe Community Association said this proposal is being entertained by both the board and the city. “We have asked the board to put the extra parking spots in the parking lot and pay for them at the board’s expense,” Chartier said. The cost to the board would be $130 per month, per pass. At the moment, the discussion surrounding the number of spaces required has ranged as high as 43 and as low as 21. This proposal, Chartier said, is all in an effort to save the school field at Mutchmor. The board has put forward the option to pave a portion of the field to fulfil parking needs at the school.

Michael Clarke, the board’s superintendent of facilities, said the board will continue to work with the city and community to try and find a workable solution. “Our goal is to reach a collaborative decision that will benefit all involved,” Clarke said. “We understand that the community wants an answer now, but at this point we remain in discussions with the city and no decision has been. It would be premature to state that a deal has been reached but we are moving forward.” At a meeting in January, Clarke said the parking issue is separate from the overall expansion project, and is subject to a separate public consultation. At the time, Clarke said as a result of the expansion, 17 spaces will be left at the school, but the expanded building will require up to 43 to address the increase in staff. Those remaining spots, Clarke said at the time, would need to be off-site, but close to the school. According to the community association, the Glebe had less than 50 per cent of the city’s standard for city parkland. The Mutchmor Field (between Third and Fourth avenues) is the property of the school board, but it is because of the lack of green space Chartier said the field sees more than 300 hours of programmed activities and a total of 6,000 children use the space in programs offered by the Glebe Neighborhood Activities Group. Two community-supported ice rinks are located on the field in the winter. In the summer outdoor, exercise activities and the Ottawa In-

ternational Soccer league use the space. The neighbouring Corpus Christi School also uses the yard. Chartier added that the committee has been talking with teachers and both parent councils about the parking proposals. “The teachers have been a part of the conversation,” she said. “They do know we all want to find a solution and that we don’t want our close relationship disrupted by parking.” “The switch” proposal turned out to be the preferred option among parents and was approved in December 2011 However at the time, the discussion of turning the playing field at the school into a parking lot never came up, Cartier said. She has heard from various parents that if they had known this would have been the battle they would not have agreed to “the switch.” One resident at the meeting even asked if they could stop the switch all together. To build the addition, the board requested $7 million. New renovations are estimated at $5 million through a capital grant, $1.3 million for upgrades to the existing building with the remaining $700,000 funded through the ministry of education’s capital reserves. So far they have secured $1.3 million for upgrades to the current school building. They received $4.6 from the capital grant and the $400,000 gap in funding has left certain portions of the project up in the air. The expansion will be a total of 789 square metres and construction will take between 11 and 14 months. Construction is aimed to start this September.

Just say no to grow-op registry

B

uyer beware. And buyers of really big items – like a house – should be very wary indeed. Members of the Ontario Real Estate Association are calling on the province to create a provincial database of all homes that have been used as marijuana grow-ops or drug labs. There is a risk that a former grow-op could contain moulds and that a chemical lab location could have dangerous residues. A local realtor suggests a provincial list of these homes could be consulted by would-be home buyers before signing for a new home. It sounds like a reasonable plan until the effectiveness and cost of a drug house registry is considered. Who will pay to create the database, and more importantly, who will pay to keep it updated? No one wants to download busy-work onto police officers in multiple jurisdictions – municipal, OPP and RCMP – when they could be solving crimes or preventing them. The real estate agents’ wish list would also be sadly incomplete. Police only know about homes where they find grow-ops or drug labs, leaving all the other illicit locations off any provincial registry. And it turns out there are pay-per-use websites that home seekers can check to learn the history of a

home. Given the size of a home purchase, the cost of adding in a history check doesn’t seem onerous. Then there’s the issue of spending public funds to create a database that will benefit only one part of the population. If you can afford a house, you’re fortunate. Buying a house is a private transaction, so the responsibility should fall on the parties involved to do their due diligence. If we as a society mandate that the province must keep tabs on homes others may not want to buy, how long will it be until we need a registry of homes where murders have occurred? How about a list of houses with Bad Mojo or a report of ghosts? Buyer beware is a fact of life. Plus we have laws to dissuade anyone from selling a damaged home without telling the buyer. If someone knowingly sells a house and does not inform the buyer of hidden damage – from any source – they could face charges of fraud. No one should have to live in a mouldy or damaged home, so people shopping for a house should do everything they can to make sure their purchase is healthy. If they hire a real estate agent, they should be confident that the agent has their best interests at heart and has done all possible research on their dream home.

Canada Post takes a flyer with junk mail plea

C

hances are you received a peculiar letter from Canada Post recently. It told you that you are part of a Canada Post database of people who had requested that no flyers be delivered. You might have forgotten that you ever did that. The letter then asked you to reconsider, by mailing in a postage-free card to Canada Post’s “Consumers’ Choice Program” saying that you would like to receive unaddressed mail at your address. Notice how big organizations, when they are urging you to accept something unpleasant, always give it a name like “Consumer’s Choice”? And speaking of unaddressed, this letter from Canada Post was addressed to “Dear Occupant.” Noting that the mailing was printed on sustainable paper that can be recycled, Canada Post told you that by refusing to accept unaddressed mail – which some cranky people insist on calling junk mail – we were missing out on coupons, catalogues, fundraising appeals from charities, municipal and community notices and product samples. Unaddressed mail, Canada Post says “can save you money and keep you connected with your local community.” What is this all about, really? Well, news

reports say Canada Post lost money last year. As to the unaddressed mail, here’s a quote from a Canada Post spokesperson, seen in the National Post: “We deliver all types of mail and all are important to the senders. And we owe it to those who pay for the service to receive the most effective service for their dollars.” In other words: companies pay us money to put those flyers in mailboxes and they’re leaning on us to get more mailboxes. Things have come to a pretty pass for a once-proud organization – having to plead with customers to accept junk mail, masking its plea as an offer to help us keep connected with our local community. Of course, we all know why. Many Canadians, perhaps most, now receive their personal mail – what we used to call “let-

ters” – electronically. You may have the odd Luddite friend or eccentric uncle who still handwrites a letter, puts it in an envelope and puts a stamp on it, but that’s about it. The great majority of communications you receive are on your computer. That even goes for junk mail, which is not in short supply in the digital world either. So we can understand that Canada Post is hurting and why, but there must be a more creative and positive way to be part of the solution than simply agreeing to receive more mail that we will never read (and causes more trees to be cut down). Apparently the most obvious solution – asking companies, political parties and other organizations to put their stuff in envelopes and buy stamps like the rest of us – wouldn’t fly with Canada Post’s partners in unaddressed mail. But maybe something else would work. For example, we would be far more receptive to a Canada Post campaign urging us to sit down and handwrite an angry letter to a politician, or a postcard to a grandchild, or a letter to the editor about something silly going on in the world, such as Canada Post trying to get us to accept junk mail. Canada Post could even make a side dollar or two by offering courses in handwriting,

which some of us have forgotten how to do. Perhaps we could even learn to write on sustainable paper that can be recycled. If we were to write such letters, we would have to buy stamps, which would be good for Canada Post. People on the receiving end – except maybe for the politicians – would be happy to get something in their mailboxes that didn’t contain coupons or photographs of John Baird. True, all of this would mean that we would be using more paper and contributing to the destruction of the world’s forests. But what’s more important, a bunch of trees or the future of Canada Post?

An apology, in three parts

M

y two boys are close in age. As such, they can frequently be found playing together, reading together or crafting together. But they also fight. They fight a lot. They wrestle; they argue. The younger is often the instigator. But the eldest is good at keeping the fight going. Neither one likes to apologize. But who does, right? Even as adults, apologizing is never easy. For one thing, we can always find reasons to avoid being the first to say sorry. Even if we do step up, apologies are too often couched in “buts,� as in, “I’m sorry for what I did, but you were horrible and that’s why I did it.� Or, “I’m sorry I hurt your feelings, but I’m not sorry I said it.� As we’ve seen recently with the scandal in the Senate, even those holding the highest posts in Canadian government that have been caught lying, cheating and

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse covering-up their mismanagement of public money have been unable to deliver an unqualified apology. There’s no doubt about it; apologies can seem difficult. I’ll be honest: I’m struggling with an apology right now. Not for the first time, I used social media as a venue to voice my objections to a friend’s opinions on a subject of controversy. As anyone who uses the Internet knows, we can often be much less diplomatic in text than we would in face-to-face interactions. We say things to people on Facebook or in emails that we would never say to their faces. Researchers have chalked

this up to our ability to create an online identity that is not constrained by realities in the physical world. I can be rude online, for example, because I don’t have to see the hurt look on the person’s face, because they can’t shout back at me in real time or because I don’t have to worry about getting slapped as a result of my snotty comments. That’s what I did. I overstepped in cyberspace. This person sent the criticism right back. We argued, and now there’s a stalemate. So how to proceed? Well, obviously, as a reasonable adult, I have to apologize. As it turns out, this person is important to me.

So regardless of any bad behaviour on her part, I need to take the high road. I’ve spent many days thinking about my own behaviour, my own comments, so I can focus my apology on the things within my control. Regardless of our different political views, I said mean things and made it personal. That was wrong and I am responsible for it. But as the recent Senate scandals have highlighted, there is a right way to apologize and there is a wrong way to apologize. I tell my own children if you’re going to say the words, “I’m sorry,� you need

to wait until you mean it, without caveats. And in order for it to be authentic, you need to do more than just say those two little words. An honest apology should actually contain three parts. The first is an unqualified and authentic, “I’m sorry.� The second is asking for forgiveness (along with a promise not to do the same thing again). The third part is asking, “what can I do to make it right?� Unfortunately, we too often focus on the first part at the expense of the latter two. This, in my opinion, is why apologies – such as

those from the government and senators in recent days – fall short. It’s one thing to say sorry authentically. It’s quite another to follow up with a commitment to alter your own behaviour and take action to make things right. The three-part apology offers a neat formula for all of us, really – “I’m sorry. Will you forgive me? How can I make it right?� And once you get the hang of it, it makes apologizing seem far less intimidating and complex. Imagine how different the world would look if our political leaders adopted this simple model.

Ottawa in 2017 By Jim Watson

When I was six years-old Montreal hosted Expo 67. Visitors and locals alike enjoyed an amazing celebration while the eyes of the world watched. As a kid, I was swept up in the excitement of the Expo and count that feeling as one of my earliest memories. It left a lasting impression on me and I’ve never forgotten how a worldclass event can transform a city.

In the lead-up to 2017 we have already been aggressive in pursuing major events for Ottawa. The City, in partnership with Ottawa Tourism, created Events Ottawa which is guided by a simple strategy: bid more, win more, host more. Already this has borne fruit as seen by the 2012 NHL All-Star Game, the 2012 JUNO Awards, and the 2013 IIHF Women’s World Championships all having come to Ottawa. And for 2017, we have already confirmed a several events including: • 2017 Annual Association of Municipalities of Ontario Conference; • Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) Annual Conference and Tradeshow; and, • The Canadian Whitewater Canoe and Kayak National Championships. To coordinate the City’s efforts and plan for 2017 we have set up a task force led by Councillors Katherine Hobbs and Rainer Bloess. It has already begun to meet regularly to discuss other major events and conferences that should be bid on but those are only part of what we want to bring to Ottawa in 2017. The larger goal is to realize former Convention Centre Chair and Member of Parliament Jean Pigott’s dream of Ottawa being every Canadian’s second home town. In 2017, we want Canadians to be especially proud to call it so. We have ideas already as to how we can make 2017 a year to remember in Ottawa but we want to hear your ideas as well. Are there festivals, events, concerts, or cultural celebrations you think would make for great additions to Ottawa in 2017? If there are, or if you would like to share any ideas you have for Ottawa in 2017, please send me an email at Jim.Watson@Ottawa.ca For more information please visit www.ottawa2017.ca R0012135755.0606

Blaze guts Lyon Street home for third time in two years Latest fire was accidental, officials rule Steph Willems

steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - For the third time in two years, fire crews were called to battle a blaze at 292 Lyon St. North last week. The two-alarm fire was first reported at 10:16 p.m. on May 29. Due to the extent of the fire, crews tackled it from the exterior until it was declared safe to enter the building. No one was inside the structure at the time crews arrived. Fire department spokesman Marc Messier said the blaze started in a second-floor bedroom and is believed to have been accidental. A portable, 20-pound propane tank was found in the wreckage that suggests a person or persons

had gained access to the unoccupied building and were using the tank for cooking or heating purposes. “We don’t have an exact cause, but the damage seems consistent with the propane tank in the bedroom and what it was operating,” said Messier. Damages from the fire are pegged at $150,000. One firefighter was taken to hospital as a precaution for heat exhaustion. The two-story brick building had become well-known to firefighters due to two previous blazes. The first, in July, 2011, resulted from a mattress that had caught fire and was subsequently tossed out a window, causing further fires outdoors.

In March of this year, another fire broke out, causing the building to be boarded up as the owner arranged the necessary repairs. Hydro was still supplying the building, though gas had been shut off. Messier said the building was supposed to be empty and that an alarm system was in place, though it isn’t known if the system was working. Though work crews had been in the building on the same day as the fire, someone had obviously had gained access to the inside later in the evening. Due to the extent of the fire and the damage caused by firefighters “opening up” the structure, Messier said he doesn’t know if the structure is salvageable. “That’s up to the insurance company,” he said.

Revellers enjoy the Canada Day festivities downtown last year. At this year’s celebrations on Parliament Hill, audiences will be able to enjoy solid musical performances, including two very different entertainers who captivated Canadians over the past year.

R0022138795

EMC news - This year’s Canada Day show on Parliament Hill will bring together two Canadians who recently captured the world’s attention for very different reasons. Artists and guests scheduled for the country’s birthday celebration were announced on May 29 by Nation Capital Commission chairman Russell Mills and Canadian Heritage and Official Languages Minister James Moore. Performer Carly Rae Jepsen, who broke onto the musical scene last year with the infectious hit ‘Call Me Maybe’, is scheduled to perform at the noon show on July 1, while a special guest known for his recent antics in outer space will also appear. Astronaut Chris Hadfield, whose photo-heavy Twitter messages from the orbiting International Space Station captivated earthlings worldwide, is also scheduled to appear during both the noon show and evening show. “As we move closer to the 150th anniversary of Confederation in 2017, Canada Day is another opportunity to show your pride and celebrate the many things that make Canada great,” said Moore. The musical lineup will be preceded by traditional ceremony, including a Peace Tower carillon concert at 9 a.m. on July 1, the flag-raising ceremony at 9:30 a.m., and the Changing of the Guard at 10 a.m. The noon show will include a flyover by CF-18 fighter jets and the Snowbirds demonstration team. Afternoon programming on the Parliament Hill lawn will trace Canada’s cultural heritage through music. Both noon and evening shows feature the same headliners – in this case, Jepsen and popular indie band Metric, plus Terri Clark and Karim Ouellet. The noon show adds Marie-Mai and Jennifer Gillis, while the evening show, which starts at 7:30 p.m., adds DJ Abeille, Lucie Idlout, Radio Radio, and Sylvain Cossette. Numerous partners allow the show to be staged. “The NCC wished to acknowledge the valuable support of private partners, federal institutions, collaborators and our more than 500 volunteers for their involvement in making the Capital a meeting place that communicated Canada to Canadians,” said Mills.

Plans for new Fairlawn Plaza restaurant submitted Steph Willems

steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news – Carling Avenue will see a new business addition if a rezoning and site plan are approved by the city.

A developer is hoping to construct a two-storey restaurant at 2148 Carling Ave. and 830 Aaron Ave., adjacent to Fairlawn Plaza and across the street from Carlingwood Shopping Center. The building would have a gross

floor area of 1,225 square metres. A zoning bylaw amendment is required to change the site’s designation from residential to arterial mainstreet in order for the commercial business to be built. Part of the proposal is for a parking lot that will

Five frauds to fight, bureau says EMC news - Take the time. Report the crime. That’s the message to consumers from Insurance Bureau of Canada. Auto insurance fraud in Ontario is estimated to cost consumers up to $1.6 billion a year in insurance premiums. “Consumers can help by learning about the different types of insurance fraud and then reporting any suspicious activity,” says Rick Dubin, IBC’s vice-president of investigations. Common types of insurance fraud are: • Unscrupulous auto repair shops that intentionally cause additional damage to a vehicle involved in an accident or bill several different insurers for repairing the same prior damage to a vehicle. • Medical clinics that ask claimants to sign blank accident benefit forms, then bill insurers for services never provided. • Collisions that don’t seem to make sense, where a driver intentionally causes a collision with an unsuspecting driver and makes it look as if the innocent driver is at fault for the

The site plan submitted to the city shows the restaurant located abutting the intersection of Carling and Aaron, with parking placed behind the building, away from Carling.

collision. • Medical clinics that forge the signatures of legitimate medical practitioners and use their names and college registration numbers without their knowledge or consent on accident benefit forms and then bill insurers for services never provided. Tips for protecting yourself against insurance fraud • Do not sign blank accident forms. • If purchasing a vehicle privately, run a full history search on the vehicle and have a qualified mechanic review the vehicle’s condition. IBC recommends purchasing a vehicle from a reputable dealership. • If you’re involved in a collision, immediately report it to your insurance company, who will then be able to recommend a reliable auto body repair facility that will provide quality repairs.

EMC news - Residents of Alta Vista are saying their community will be the most awesome place to be in the city this weekend as they prepare for a neighbourhood-wide event. The Awesome Alta Vista Garage Sale will take place on June 8 and as of the end of May, more than 60 homes are participating in the event. Organizer Marc Boivin said it’s likely more will be to be added by sale day. What makes this garage sale so awesome? According to Boivin, it is that there are so many spots to stop in a concentrated area. “There is a wide ranging demographic and mix of residents in Alta Vista will ensure that there will be something for sale to meet everyone’s needs and interests,� he said. The event is now in its third year and in the past,

patrons were able to find everything from toys, books, furniture, electronics, bicycles, clothes, artwork “There will be undoubtedly some interesting finds and great conversation pieces,� Boivin said. It is up to each participant whether the money made goes to charity or their pocket, but for the community association this event is about bringing the neighbourhood together and making friends. There is no need for volunteers. “Each homeowner is responsible for their own sale,� Boivin said. To add an address to the map, participants need only send a message to altavistagaragesale@gmail. com. “People who would like to hit the ground running on the day of the garage sale should look at the map and plan a route to ensure that they have hit every house,� Boivin said.

Lightly butter and flour a

two-litre (nine-by-five-inch) loaf pan. In food processor, pulse 2 cups (500 mL) of the strawberries, until slightly chunky and jam-like in consistency. Add sugar, buttermilk, lemon juice, eggs and vanilla; process until smooth.

In large bowl, whisk together flour, oats, lemon rind, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients. Add strawberry mixture, folding to combine just until no specks of flour remain, about three minutes. (Do not overwork the mixture.) Finely chop remaining strawberries and fold into the batter. Spread into prepared pan, smoothing the top. Bake in a 180 C (350 F) oven for one hour or until tester inserted in centre comes out clean. Transfer to rack and let cool for 30 minutes. Run a knife around the inside of pan to loosen and invert the loaf pan to remove. Place it right side up on a rack and cool completely. (Make-ahead: Wrap in plastic wrap and store at room temperature for up to three days or overwrap and freeze for up to one month.) Dust with icing sugar before serving. For another healthy option, substitute 125 ml (1/2 cup) of wheat bran for the oats.

Photos depict world transformed by oil ‘Edward Burtynsky: Oil’ now on display at Canadian Nature Museum Ottawa West News staff

Putting Families First Parents are fully aware of the expenses that come with raising a family. From basic necessities such as clothing and food, to education and recreational activities – it adds up fast. That is why our Government has consistently worked to support and deliver savings for Canadian families since we were first elected in 2006. We started by introducing the Universal Child Care Benefit, providing real choice in child care by giving parents $1,200 a year for each child under the age of six. We have kept taxes low, including cutting the lowest personal income tax rate to 15%, as well as cutting the GST from 7% to 5%. We have also delivered tax credits that are helping families save every year, such as the Family Caregiver Tax Credit, the Child Tax Credit, the Children’s Fitness Tax Credit and the Children’s Arts Tax Credit. The average family now saves $3,200 a year. Despite these savings, Canadians remain mindful of the fact that the price of many products they need to support their family are consistently priced higher in Canada compared to the exact same product sold in the United States. Our Government understands this concern, and we have taken action through our latest Budget, Economic Action Plan 2013, to help deliver lower prices for hard-working Canadian families. Hockey skates, skis and baby clothing are just a few of the goods that will now be a little more affordable. To do this, our Government has removed tariffs on imported baby clothing and sports equipment, resulting in significant savings for families. Other examples of products that are now tariff-free include: snowboards, golf clubs, snowshoes, toboggans and roller skates. We strongly encourage businesses to pass these savings – in full – to their customers. These results build on our Government’s strong record of providing real savings to Canadian families. In fact, since 2009, we have eliminated close to 1,900 tariffs, providing more than $525 million in tariff relief annually to Canadian businesses and consumers. Ultimately, Canadians are aware that our dollar has strengthened considerably compared to the U.S. dollar. It makes sense, therefore, that a strong dollar should be reflected in the prices Canadians pay when they purchase products for their families with their hard-earned money. Pierre Poilievre, MP for Nepean-Carleton

EMC news - Crude oil, while a naturally-occurring substance, is more commonly associated with man-made landscapes. Highways, subdivisions, urban sprawl and vehicle culture all stem from the abundant possibilities inherent in fossil fuels, but the changes they can bring to natural landscapes can be jarring. Visitors to the Canadian Museum of Nature can now view images of these unique landscapes following the unveiling of its new photo exhibition, Edward Burtynsky: Oil. Burtynsky is a renowned photographer who has spent much of his career depicting industriallytransformed landscapes. He was named an Officer of the Order of Canada in 1997. Oil has been exhibited in museums worldwide, and will be on display in Ottawa until Sept. 2. Comprised of 56 large-scale photographs, the exhibition depicts the lifecycle of oil and mankind’s dependency on it through images of oil fields, refineries, and the landscapes of consumer culture derived from it. The Canadian Museum of Nature is located at 240 McLeod St. More information of the museum and its exhibits can be found at nature.ca.

Edward Burtynsky spent years documenting man-made landscapes arising from the industrialization of society, spurred by the power of fossil fuels.

In fact, we all enjoyed what he cooked – except fried blood pudding which I even had trouble looking at when it came to the table. When he fried sauerkraut, it never tasted at all like the batch Mother would make. Father would rinse it many times, put it in a fry pan with butter and chopped onions and it wasn’t ready to eat until it had turned a golden brown. His German potato pancakes were usually made on a Sunday night. The potatoes were shredded, rinsed, squeezed dry, and then mixed with eggs and of course, chopped onions. We kept him busy at the Findlay Oval turning out his

pancakes barely giving him time to eat them himself, we loved them so much. Of course, they were well lathered with butter and maple syrup too. Now it was dandelions. Well, I was with Mother on this one – I had no desire to eat weeds that were pulled out of the front yard where goodness knows what animal had trampled all over them. No siree. That Saturday morning Father ordered the boys to meet him in the yard with their jackknives. He was carrying a milk pail and got down on his knees right in the middle of the yard and showed the brothers how to dig up a dandelion, right down to and including the root. It didn’t take long to fill the milk pail.

Proposal illustrates need for macro view on density: Leiper Continued from page 3

which states that mid-rise building of six to eight storeys would be appropriate for the site. “No one involved at this point thinks the most recent version of this proposal is any different from what’s been proposed in the past,� said Leiper, calling the design tweaks “superficial.� Leiper said that while developers point to the city’s Official Plan policy of intensification as a rationale for proposing increased density on a site, the city’s approval of the area’s CDP makes the site

a de-facto part of the Official Plan. Until it is known whether city staff approved of the project or not, the association plans to hold off on any significant opposition measures. Hobbs said last winter she did not approve of the project in its current form. Should staff, committee and council approve the project, Leiper said an Ontario Municipal Board appeal would be likely. Another development proposed for the edge of the Hintonburg community – the adaptive re-use of 12 Stirling Ave. – recently went back to

the drawing board following community opposition. In that case, the community association said they would have approved of an eight or nine-storey building, but not the 19storey one being proposed. Situations like that one and the Tega proposal causes Leiper to wish there were maximum density targets for sites, not just minimum ones. He pointed to the significant future development potential of the Bayview Yards site and O-Train corridor as reasons a more comprehensive view should be taken on existing, developable land and density targets.

He hauled the pail over to the cement step at the pump and filled it with water. He sloshed the dandelions around with his arm in the pail up to his elbow, dumped the water out, and repeated the performance. Mother was standing at the kitchen door with her arms folded across her chest, as if defying Father to bring the weeds into the house. Well, that’s exactly what he intended on doing. He laid out a spanking clean tea towel on the bake table and shook what water he could off the dandelions and laid them out flat, cutting off the long roots. Then he folded the towel over the pile of weeds and patted it with his flattened hand. What amazed me was that all the time this was going on, there wasn’t a word spoken between Mother and Father. It was as if they hadn’t laid eyes on each in their entire lives. Father took down a big pot from the shelf over the stove and piled in the dandelions. He poured in a scant dipper of water, sprinkled in a hand-

ful of salt and slid the pot to the front of the Findlay Oval. Then he went over to his rocking chair, lit his pipe, crossed his legs and waited. The table had already been set for dinner. We always had dinner at noon hour – supper was what we had at night, and Mother had roast pork and potatoes in the oven. It looked very much like we had a choice: either eat the dandelions as a vegetable, or settle for sliced tomatoes and cucumbers. Father was certainly in charge of the big pot, already boiling gently on the stove. Mother was having nothing to do with it. He tested the contents with a fork and when they were done to his liking, he poured the dandelions into the sieve, pressed them down with the wood spoon, and plopped them into a big bowl. He took the wood spoon, dug it into the butter dish, almost emptying it, and swirled it into the dandelions. He set the bowl in the middle of the table and we all looked at it, no one daring

to be the first one to dig in. Emerson, the most daring of the lot of us, took his fork and tested one boiled leaf. I never took my eyes off him. He rolled it around in his mouth, and reached out for the bowl, ladling a heaping pile on his plate. “Just as good as your potato pancakes,� he said. Well, it didn’t take long for the rest of us to take a small bite, which led to us piling the dandelions on our plates and even Mother, dared to taste a fork full. It didn’t take long for Mother to admit that the dandelions had a place on our dinner table. She did demand to oversee the washing of every last leaf, however. From that Saturday, like Father’s potato pancakes and fried sauerkraut, his boiled dandelions often found their way to our plates. She did, however, draw the line on eating the fried roots. Father said she didn’t know what she was missing. “I’ll take that chance,� Mother replied.

oman, we have been eatin’ those on this here farm for a hundred years,� Father said to Mother. I could see she wasn’t impressed. “They’re weeds, Albert,� Mother said. “Plain and simple weeds. I never heard of anyone eating weeds.� We were at the breakfast table and we five children were looking at Mother and Father as if we were watching a tennis match. I didn’t think Father was going to win this one. The subject under discussion was dandelions. They covered what we called a lawn. It was really just our front yard, but since we didn’t own a lawn mower when the grass got too high, one of the brothers tackled it with a scythe. It was hard to tell what was grass and what was dandelions. On the way to school that morning, I asked my much older sister Audrey if she ever heard of anyone eating dandelions.

City seeks new request for proposals for Ottawa Stadium Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - After sitting idle for months awaiting a potential minor league-level tenant, a new city report indicates the Ottawa Baseball Stadium could open up for community use this summer. Released on May 28, the report indicates the city needs to revisit the conversation surrounding leasing opportunities for the stadium, adding that the parks and recreation department will take over programming at the facility this summer and fall. The latest development in the ongoing saga comes as good news for the surrounding community, president of the Overbrook Community Association Sheila Perry said. “It’s been a shame that nothing is going on there,” Perry said. “This is good news, but we wonder if it’s too late in the season for anything. It seems it’s at the last hour.” According to Dan Chenier, general manager of the parks and recreation department, bookings are already under

way and use will begin in the later part of June. There is no deadline regarding the bookings, but they are done on a first-come-firstserved basis, for casual use only. The report calls for the city to allocate $50,000 in one-time funding to support this programming. The city has suggested such uses could include ultimate frisbee, cricket and baseball leagues. Opening up use of the facility to the community comes after a year of failed negotiations between the city and Beacon Sports Capital Partners to bring a AA baseball team to Ottawa. In February 2012, council approved a report that allocated $5.7 million to give the Coventry Road stadium a major upgrade, including the installation of artificial turf. On direction from city council, staff entered into negotiations with Beacon Sports to form a renovation plan and a lease agreement with an AA baseball franchise. According to the latest report, city staff and Beacon

Sports met numerous times over a five month period following the initial approval. Three potential groups negotiated to lease the stadium, but all eventually backed off because of renovation costs, now estimated between $10 to $30 million. Now staff is calling for the parameters surrounding finding a new tenant to be broadened, stating the city needs to take a broader approach to turn the stadium into “a familyfriendly entertainment destination that is anchored in professional baseball, but also offers other amenities.” The facility has not been upgraded since it was built in the early 1990s, but some improvements and maintenance has started. According to Peter Radke, manager of the city’s realty initiatives and development department, since February 2013 the only work being completed is the final waterproofing of exposed concrete. Additional work being considered for 2013 relates to electrical, mechanical, and fire and life safety elements of the

stadium that must be completed, regardless of tenancy. The report indicates it would cost around $250,000 The last tenants, the Ottawa Fat Cats, leased the facility from April 2010 to September 2012 on a year-by-year lease. A former general manager of the club, Duncan MacDonald, said the organization paid $108,000 to rent the facility. During that time, the organization paid for all the maintenance and upgrades, which MacDonald said was around $250,000, which was also paid for by the club. “We paid all the bills,” MacDonald said. “We paid rent in full and in advance and then began fixing up the facility.” The first thing the organization did, MacDonald said was spend $30,000 just to have the plumbing fixed. The fact that a once state-ofthe-art facility is falling apart has Rideau-Rockcliffe Coun. Peter Clark upset. “I was a part of that stadium getting built,” Clark said. “We were proud of that stadium; letting it lapse and fall into disrepair, was an error.”

Overbrook resident Peter MacFarlane is a long time Ottawa Stadium fan and a ticket holder since 1993. He said he is saddened to see the stadium in its current state. “As a teacher, I took my students through one of the first tours of the stadium,” MacFarlane said. “Looking at it now -it’s totally frustrating, it’s not that it isn’t useable, it’s perfectly useable.” MacFarlane said he partly blames the city on how it handled the stadium, noting that he does not understand why the city sold a portion of the stadium’s parking lot. He also questioned the city’s treatment of the stadium’s former tenants. “The Fat Cats put their necks on the line; I don’t believe the city treated them well, certainly not when it came to them wanting to bring in other events,” he said. “The Fat Cats wanted to bring in community events and now the city is saying that’s what they want to do? I don’t understand.” Perry said the community association had a great relation-

ship with the former tenants, including working together on community events. “The Fat Cats did their very best, we were partners, and that is what you want. And again if the city doesn’t want that, then we really are stuck,” she said. This news of a new round of negotiations has the community feeling hopeful, Perry added, but at the end of the day, the group is simply looking for the truth. “What do they want? It’s easy to say this failed, and that failed, and I fully expect at the end of the day it will be developed,” Perry said. “I just want the city to be honest. Be honest city. And engage the community.” Teams and organizations interested in booking the Ottawa Baseball Stadium can contact city-wide allocations. Casual bookings are done a on firstcome-first-served basis. Staff is available from Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. by phone at 613-580-2595, by e-mail at sports@ottawa.ca or in person at Ben Franklin Place, 101 Centrepointe Dr.

“Because of the new condos moving in, there is a much younger demographic, (and) we’re trying to cater to that group,” said Suzanne Racine, assistant director for the Bank Street BIA. “We have a wall (in the presentation centre) of five things people want to see on Bank. We’ve had tons of people come into the store to let us know what they want in the area. We are going to make a hotlist of things to have, and will be forwarding it to the property owners – and offering a $5,000 bonus to any property owner who signs a deal from the hotlist of stores we want.” Racine said the BIA wants to exert more control over the

retail component of the area. In addition to the pressure washing, a painter will be employed to spruce up store frontages wherever possible, and businesses will be able to take advantage of the BIA’s facade improvement grant program. The Bank Street BIA encompasses the 15-block stretch from Wellington Street to Gladstone Avenue, and was formed back in 1977. Before that, according to BIA co-chairman Stephen Tanner, a merchant’s association was in existence, making it one of the oldest BIAs in the city. When it formed and subsequently brought in the Bank Street Promenade branding, Ottawans were fleeing from the inner city to the expanding suburbs in droves. Now, the opposite seems to be happening as younger people flood back into the downtown area. “I saw the good days of Bank Street, which was a very vibrant place before the shopping malls came,” said Tanner, a life-long resident of the city. “I think Bank Street has taken a lead in making sure that all of the new condos and the new residents…are going

to be looked after. I honestly believe that now is the time for people to rent these stores along Bank and get in on the ground floor.” The extensive reconstruction of Bank Street a few years ago, which brought with it new streetscape and underground infrastructure, was a “necessary evil” despite being challenging for businesses, said Racine, as it created the conditions required to bring thousands of new residents into Centretown. Racine said the BIA would like to see a flagship store become part of the retail mix along Bank. Suggestions from the public have highlighted the need for a women’s clothing store, a hardware store or specialty deli and cheese shop. Five storefront vacancies currently exist along that stretch of Bank, ranging from 800 to 2,700 square feet. The rebranding campaign comes as the nearby Rideau Centre embarks on a largescale expansion project, which is expected to wrap up before the completion of the downtown LRT line in 2017.

Ottawa boy on track for train conductor career 12-year-old passes test with flying colours at CN Railway recruiting session Blair Edwards blair.edwards@metroland.com

EMC news - When it comes to career choices, 12-year-old Alex McDougall has a one track mind. For as long as he can remember, the Bridlewood boy has dreamed of riding the rails, an idea that was first planted in his head at the age of two, when his parents bought him a Thomas the Train set. Over time, Alex’s collection of toy trains grew, including several Lionel model kits he ran over an O-gauge track set up on a three-by-two metre plywood table in his basement. Picking out gifts for Alex were always easy, said his father, Bob. “If you want to give him a good Christmas or birthday present, you’ll give him a train ticket to Montreal.� Earlier this month, Alex decided

to find out if he had what it took to be a train conductor, when he attended a Canadian National Railway recruiting session held at a hotel near the Ottawa airport. On May 17, Alex joined a group of 40 men and women for a series of tests and an interview run by CN recruiters Stephanie Seebeck and Christine O’Neil. The company was looking to hire 600 people to conduct trains in western Canada, including Saskatchewan, Alberta and northern B.C. The compensation package was appealing -- a train conductor earned an average salary of $85,000 a year. Bob McDougall heard about the hiring fair, and had sent an email to CN, asking if his son could attend. “I said I have this 12-year-old who is a train fanatic,� said Bob. “Initially they said no, but the peo-

were presented with a diagram of two tracks, a locomotive, some rail cars and a caboose, and were asked to rearrange the train in a minimum number of moves and switch tracks, while maintaining safety. Those writing the test must answer at least seven questions correctly to pass. Alex passed with flying colours. “I got 85 per cent,� he said. “Only about half the people passed, so I was proud of myself.� Alex’s dad also took the test -just for fun -- and passed, but just barely. “I was proud of him as a dad to see him still sitting there when they asked those who didn’t pass into another room,� said Bob. “He was kind of happy that he beat his old man.� But Alex will have to wait until he turns 18 before he can take the test for real and vie for a job as a train conductor. During his interview, a recruiter told Alex he’d have to enjoy physical activity and working in the outdoors if he wanted the job.

At the end of the interview and tests, the recruiters gave Alex a set of CN merchandise, including a hard hat, safety gloves, and a safety vest. TRAINS Alex, a Grade 7 student at W.O. Mitchell Elementary School in Bridlewood, said he’s been a train buff for as long as he can remember. “I like the size and speed and I like the distance they can go without having to stop, the convenience of having everything in such a small space while going far,� he said. “I’ve been on trains many times.� During one trip aboard a Via Rail train heading from Ottawa to Montreal, Alex was invited to take a tour of the train’s engines. The engineer showed Alex the train’s hydraulics, electrical and braking systems, and even allowed the boy to shut down the train’s power and then start it up again. Bob, who was sitting in the passenger section at the time, remembers the lights flickering on and off. Besides weekend jaunts to Montreal, Alex has travelled across Canada and the United States, and has visited train museums in Montreal and Pennsylvania. Every year, his family takes a trip Washington to Florida aboard an Amtrak train; during one visit, he checked out the train watching platform in Folkston, Ga., a railway hub for trains passing through Florida, where onlookers can listen to the interaction between controllers and engineers over the radio. “Alex will sit there with the oldtimers and talk about trains,� said Bob. Alex said he can’t wait until he turns 18, and has the chance to apply for a job as a train conductor. “My whole life I’ve liked trains and it just seems the right job for me.�

Plans for former Rockcliffe air base shaping up Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Members of the public had the chance to see the preliminary plans for the redevelopment of the former Rockcliffe air base at a recent open house in Overbrook.

Three alternative designs were on display illustrating different ways the Canada Lands Company could potentially develop the 125 hectare area east of Ottawa’s downtown. The day-long event offered residents of surrounding communities a chance to put their mark on the

community design plan which will be presented in late 2013 or early 2014. The workshop focused on three design alternatives to accommodate about 6,000 residents alongside a mix of employment, retail and educational developments. Dubbed the

Arc, the Grid and the True North, the designs showcased development in varying ways. Participants divided into 10 groups had the opportunity to speak about different aspects of the designs, everything from zoning to grid patterns to the types of retail and employment planned for the site.

Each group pointed out the pros and cons of the three alternatives, with more than one group stating they would like to see a fourth plan with a blend of options from the three. Architect firm Brook McIlroy designed the plans and principal architect Anne McIlroy was on hand to speak to residents. See FEEDBACK, page 35

The Black Olive grill has made it easy to have that great taste and flavour with the

push of a button!” For centuries in Japan, the Kamado style cooker has been the source of great meals. “This style of cooking reduces shrinkage and retains the moisture in foods, producing succulent, juicy steak, poultry and meats infused with the flavour of perfect wood pellet blends – maple, apple, cherry and hickory.” Not only does the Black Olive give food the best taste, cooking with the revolutionary grill is easy too. “The Black Olive does it all – smoking, baking, roasting, grilling and searing. Imagine enjoying your favourite wheel of brie, giant Portobello mushrooms or even pizza grilled to perfection with the amazing taste of wood pellets. It’s the best grilling experience ever!” Beautifully designed, easy to control, delicious results, and built to last – the Black Olive is durable and tough, able to withstand the most extreme climates and retain its good looks.

of the information used to build the community design plan. It will be also developed based on technical analysis, information generated by required studies as well as on detailed review by a technical advisory committee, city departments and stakeholder agencies. The designs, along with information concerning the community design plan, will be available on www. clcrockcliffe.ca and on www.ottawa. ca. The development of the land will take place in phases and could take a number of years to complete. Where construction will begin has yet to be determined. Another meeting is planned for the fall.

It takes a community to raise a child. And the staff of the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa (CASO) is an integral part of this community for many children, youth and families.

“Our next step is to create a fourth plan,” she said. “Today people are really being the designers. It’s important that people know they are in charge of the plans.” The Algonquins of Ontario and Canada Lands have an agreement concerning development on the site, which includes a commemoration of the history of the Algonquin people, participation in all stages of the concept development, land use planning and detailed design, and the use of qualified Algonquin companies for the project. Each alternative plan had a designated spot for an Algonquin Commemoration overlooking the Ottawa River. Important points that multiple working groups highlighted was that retail space should not become dead at night, citing Sparks Street as an example. The groups said it was important for there to be a mix of residential and retail together. McIlroy agreed. “I really heard their comments,” she said. “It is definitely something we will think about: how we can mix the retail and the residential better.” Some of the other concerns raised were that all three plans offered a degree of cut-through traffic, high density buildings needed to be close to parkland and the need for retail to be scattered throughout the area. There were four workshops in total which had the group discuss the urban landscape, infrastructure, connections and alternative design concepts. The workshops were led by volunteer facilitators, some who live near the proposed development. The facilitators reported each group’s findings to the larger group to discuss. McIlroy, along with other team members of the Rockcliffe project took notes, as well part of the documentation of the participant’s points was designed into a graphic representation by Living Tapestries Jennifer Shepherd. Burma Road resident Gayle Fraser AY attended the open house with FRIDfriend and Manor Park resident, Melanie Amyotte. The two ladies said they were intrigued by the ideaJUofNE having a retail strip and the village square. “Maybe a fresh market, like a local farmers’ market could be interesting,” Amyotte said. “It would beAYa FRID good use of the space.” Both women said they intend to continue participating in theJUconsulNE tation process. McIlroy said that when it comes to developing the next plan, it requires her team to balance what they heard at the workshop with what can be accomplished and accommodated on the site. “We want this community to be visibly different,” she said. McIlroy likened the planning of this community to other Canada Lands Company developments currently underway and completed, such

as the Downsview Park redevelopment in Toronto and Garrison Crossing in Chilliwack, B.C. “The types of neighbourhoods we are creating are similar,” McIlroy said. The open house welcomed more than 200 people through its doors at the Hampton Inn on May 25. Canada Lands Company is a Crown corporation that manages government properties across the country. Canada Lands acquired the property in June 2011 and are currently working on its first step for the development site, the community design plan, which will be handled by MMM Group.

Residents keep up opposition Earn Extra Money! Keep Your Weekends Free! to interprovincial bridge Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - A busload of Kettle Island residents attended an open house in Orléans to voice opposition to any interprovincial bridge in the east end of Ottawa. The latest interprovincial bridge open house took place at Shenkman Arts Centre on May 27. Residents from the technically preferred corridor, Kettle Island, attended to speak with consulting firm Roche-Genivar and NCC officials about the selection, the bridge and they continue to question the process. A total of 198 people came out to the consultation with a group of the islanders arriving in a yellow school bus. The bus was paid for by the Rockcliffe Park Residents Association, and was offered to residents of Rockcliffe Mews, Carson Grove, Manor Park, New Edinburgh and Lindenlea. Secretary for the association, Iola Price, organized the bus. “We felt it was important to make sure those who couldn’t get here could, and that we took many cars off the road,” Price said. Taking cars off the road is part of an argument put forward by Kettle Island residents and many others. Ian Gadbois of the Convent Glen Community Association attended the event, even though both corridors 6 and 7 – near his neighbourhood – are no longer options. “While we are relieved that corridors 6 or 7 were not chosen, we continue to be concerned about the bridge issue,” Gadbois said. “We are concerned from two angles. One is that scarce government resources would be spent better on expansion of the LRT, renewal of aging infrastructure and cleanup of the Ottawa River than on any bridge, and the second is that more careful consideration should be given to a tunnel as a possibly more effective solution to the downtown truck problem.” Gadbois added that Mayor Jim Watson has said a tunnel should be reconsidered. But lead consultant Eric Peissel, a consultant for Roche-Genivar Joint Venture and the NCC’s Fred Gaspère say a tunnel is not a viable option. “At its core, a tunnel would only serve one purpose,” Gaspère said. “The purpose is for a long-term transportation strategy.” Peissel added that trucks with hazardous materials would be forbidden in a tunnel, leaving those trucks continuing

MICHELLE NASH/METROLAND

Peter Wilson became a one-man protest outside of the Shenkman Arts Centre on May 27 at the latest open house to discuss an east-end interprovincial bridge. to take the King Edward route. Hired by the NCC to establish which of three locations would be the best option for a new interprovincial crossing, Roche-Genivar has been undertaking an environmental assessment for the past two years, holding public consultations, open houses, online comment forms and round table discussions to capture residents’ comments about a new crossing. The company says Kettle Island ranks best in traffic and transportation, natural environment, economic environment, land use and properties and costs. It ranked lower when it came to looking at the social environment and for water use and resources, including a potential risk to the Gatineau water treatment plant, but the team was assured that any spills would be considered manageable. As Gaspère said, the plans for a bridge are partly based on projections for the year 2031. According to the consultants, traffic will increase by 60 per cent on the Macdonald-Cartier Bridge and by constructing a new crossing in corridor 5, those traffic numbers will be reduced while keeping the level of truck volumes equal to what it is today. The consulting firm did look at what would happen if they were to somehow limit the truck traffic on the Macdonald-Cartier Bridge, which resulted in more traffic being dispersed to the downtown bridges and found there would still be a lot of trucks in the downtown core, because that’s where their destinations are located. Rockcliffe resident Peter Wilson said those numbers argue the point residents in all the corridors have been saying – any bridge will not alleviate the truck traffic in the downtown core. The open house in Orléans saw poor attendance com-

pared to a similar open house last year, when there were still three corridors in the running. That event showed off the three preferred routes and more than 1,200 people attended. A rally was held at the event with all the community associations banding together to tell officials a bridge in any of the locations was not the answer. Wilson became a one-man protest outside of the Shenkman centre, but as more people attended the open house, they stopped to talk to him. Wilson said this is not just a fight for residents of Kettle Island. “Whereever the bridge goes, the damage is going to be horrendous,” he said. “I sympathize with Lowertown. I do. I think everyone does. I’m not fighting against them at all; I’m trying to let them know that it’s not going to solve the problem. I think most of us are fighting for the people of Lowertown.” Some of corridor 5 residents said they have resented recent media reports, emails and calls about how it’s a choice between a rich neighbourhood and Lowertown. Wilson said that is not the case at all. “They are just spreading the problem,” he said. “To me it would be like if you had a hole in your living room and a roofer came over and said, ‘OK we can reduce your problem by 30 per cent,’ and they put a hole in your dining room.” Wilson added he will keep fighting because he doesn’t feel the outcome is right. “It’s not over until it’s over,” he said. Recent reports released by Roche-Genivar revealed a bridge would cost taxpayers $1.6 billion. Funding is not in place. Whether a bridge will be built still remains up in the air according to the NCC, which has only committed to work with the provinces on the environment assessment.

Richcraft drops plan for park sales centre Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Richcraft will drop its plan to build a sales centre in a temporary park it is constructing on Rideau Street in Sandy Hill after the community strongly opposed it. The developer has offered to extend the lifespan of the soon-to-be-built temporary park to six or seven years from the current three years if Richcraft gained residents’ support to add an office to sell units for a condo it plans to build nearby at Rideau and Cobourg streets. But around 300 residents who attended the annual general meeting of the local community association on May 16 made up their minds before hearing a presentation given by Richcraft representatives the following week. Around 20 people attended that meeting to reiterate Action Sandy Hill’s position that the developer must live up to its commitment to provide a temporary park for three years. Kevin Yemm, a representative from Richcraft, said the company plans to complete the park and open it by July 1.

While the site looks unfinished, Richcraft’s Steve Grandmont said much of the groundwork has been laid and the majority of the work that remains is simply landscaping. Residents at the meeting were angry that the park is still not in place, despite a an initial deadline last fall for completion of the park. But the city didn’t meet its own deadline to approve the park agreement, so that eliminated the park-completion deadline, Yemm said. The city’s planning manager hasn’t imposed a new deadline. Yemm said the request to add a sales centre would maximize Richcraft’s business opportunities by ensuring it has a highly visible, consistent location for a sales centre for the Rideau/Cobourg condo project, and afterwards it could potentially be used to pre-sell units for a future building on the site of the park at Rideau and Charlotte. But Yemm said the addition of the sales centre could also benefit the community by ensuring the park-like setting would be maintained for a longer period. He also said that

a sales centre could benefit the park by bringing electricity and lighting, which are not part of the park plan approved by the city. Yemm offered to make a presentation at the May 16 Action Sandy Hill annual general meeting, but was turned down because there was no room on the agenda. Those potential benefits didn’t convince residents at the meeting, who were more concerned about the addition of parking and car traffic to the site and the loss of about a third of the green space they were promised. “The community has said ‘no,’ in no uncertain terms,” said Sally Southey, who was recently elected to the Action Sandy Hill board. “I just think the sales centre will make an ugly entrance to the community,” said Vivian Clark, another resident. Grandmont insisted there would be no way to retain the park and add a sales centre after the three-year park lease agreement with the city ends. “Either way, I have to relocate my sales centre here in three years,” Grandmont said. “I’m not going to take (the

park) out and rebuild.” Several people at the May 27 meeting accused Richcraft of planning to put a sales centre in the park all along, but Yemm said that was never the plan. When negotiations for a temporary park began, a project to reconstruct Rideau Street was not imminent. When that road reconstruction was fast-tracked, it created the infrastructure capacity to move forward with the condo project and that means a sales centre is now needed, Yemm said. The park will cost around $70,000 for Richcraft to construct and the company will pay the city $10,000 each year for three years to maintain the park. Grandmont said Richcraft wants to be seen as a member of the Sandy Hill community. Residents said they would like to have a more productive relationship with the developer, but better communication is needed. “So far, Richcraft has given us vacant sites and empty buildings,” Rollins said. “We are going to have to deal with each other for a few years to come … we would like it to be productive.”

With hot weather hitting the city, the Ottawa Humane Society (OHS) is warning Ottawans that leaving a dog in a car even for a few minutes on a hot day could be fatal. Leaving a dog in a car even for a few minutes on a hot day could be fatal. Each year the Ottawa Humane Society (OHS) receives hundreds of calls about dogs left in vehicles on hot summer days. When the thermometer soars, a parked car can quickly become a furnace, endangering an animal’s life and making the owner liable to criminal charges. With only hot air to breathe, a dog’s normal cooling process – panting – doesn’t work. A dog can withstand internal body temperatures of 40°C for only a few minutes before brain damage or death can occur. Last year alone, the OHS received more than 300 calls about dogs left in vehicles on hot days. These calls resulted in OHS Rescue and Investigation Services issuing 136 warnings and advisories to dog owners, removing 8 dogs from cars, and charging 9 individuals, resulting in 8 convictions.

Ottawa West News EMC - Thursday, June 6, 2013

EMC news - Three weeks ago, the far corner behind the Overbrook Community Centre Park near Edith Street was bare. Now, 24 wooden boxes are arranged in rows, where vegetables and herbs have been planted and already little sprouts can be seen above the dark earth. “Last November we were looking at how to could improve things here in Overbrook,” said Sheila Perry, president of the Overbrook Community Association. Someone suggested building a community garden and the idea took off. The community association, in partnership with a number of individuals, organizations and local businesses, officially opened the Overbrook Community Gardens on May 25. “It’s an amazing project,” said Perry. “It’s so special.” The new food garden was a community effort, with two schools lending a major hand, said Perry. Rideau High School built all the wooden boxes and carved the numbers and plaques decorating the bins.

“These will last 25 years,” said Perry of the large wooden crates. Longfields-Davidson Heights Secondary School built the shed that houses all the tools to keep the gardens growing. Two of the wooden boxes are dedicated to the Rideau Rockcliffe Food Bank and five others are devoted to youth and families, said Perry, including Queen Mary Street and Queen Elizabeth public schools. Growing and tending the food will provide students with hands-on knowledge. Other boxes are open to the community. “Anyone can come and volunteer,” said Perry. The association also welcomes donations in the form of funds, gardening supplies, tools, and vegetation and flowers. A master gardener has also donated his time to teach people how to properly care for the plants. “It’s an opportunity for different community members to come together,” said Mehdi Louzouaz, community developer with the Rideau Rockcliffe Community Resource Centre. For more information or to volunteer, visit overbrook.ca or email info@overbrook.ca, or call the resource centre at 613-745-0073.

Kiwanis help with early autism research EMC news - The Kiwanis Club of Ottawa is pleased to announce a donation of $25,000 to Ottawa-based charity QuickStart. The funds will help develop a new program called KickStart, which will provide parent coaching and learning services for children 30 months and under who have been diagnosed with autism.  “Kiwanis is proud to support such an important initiative,” said Alison Hunter, president of the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa. “Through programs like KickStart, Ottawa can become a leader in the field of early autism rec-

ognition research, and we’re happy to help expand these efforts.” QuickStart was founded in 2008 by Suzanne Jacobson, who saw the impact of autism firsthand when both of her grandsons were diagnosed with the disorder. She partnered with the Ottawa Children’s Treatment Centre to create the first pre-diagnosis clinic in Canada. Through QuickStart, children and their families can now receive free support services even before an autism diagnosis. Experts agree that addressing symptoms as early as possible is crucial to

help prevent developmental regression. “Right here in Ottawa, over 300 children are diagnosed with autism each year,” Jacobson said. “Due to waiting lists that are measured in years, children are missing out on the optimum time to receive intervention. Waiting severely limits the child’s ability to develop to their full potential.” Autism is a complex developmental disability that impacts the typical development of the brain in the areas of social interaction and communication skills.

In North America, one in 88 newborns is diagnosed with autism. QuickStart’s new treatment program, KickStart, will not only help children and their families, but will provide evidence to the medical community on early intervention in autism. “The program not only brings immediate help to needy children and their desperate families, but the lessons learned can be applied to the much larger publicly funded system that is trying to cope with the full 300 children per year diagnosed with autism here in our city,” said

Jacobson.  With the $25,000 donation, more children can be added to the program, which will increase the program evaluation sample size. “This will in turn enhance the credibility of the results in the professional judgment of our colleagues in the publicly funded sector,” said Jacobson.  KIWANIS CLUB OF OTTAWA

Since 1917 the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa has been active in fundraising and community involvement as a notfor-profit organization.

The largest Kiwanis Club in Canada, the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa is one of the most active and dynamic service clubs in the world. Each year the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa provides thousands of hours of community service and raises $600,000 for the local community. One of the 8,000 clubs in Kiwanis International, the club has met since 1917. Projects carried on by Kiwanis in the Ottawa area include the Kiwanis Read-a-thon, the Kiwanis Music Festival, and the Reading is Fundamental project running at Connaught Public School.

Ride the Rideau fundraiser adds shorter 50km route Organizers of hospital foundation event looks to appeal to wider range of riders Emma Jackson

emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - The fourth annual Ride the Rideau fundraiser hopes to attract new cyclists with a shorter route for this year’s event. Organizers at the Ottawa Hospital Foundation have added a 50-kilometre bike ride along the Rideau River to complement the original 100-km ride to fund cancer research on Sept. 7. Event co-ordinator Michelle van Vliet said riders in the new 50-km category will do half the original route between Ottawa and Merrickville and then will be shuttled the rest of the way to the evening celebration in the small riverside town. She said the standard $1,500 fundraising minimum will still apply for 50-km riders, because the foundation wants to make as big an imO T T A W A

pact as possible. But Van Vliet said distance is often more of a challenge than fundraising. “We always thought the $1,500 would be a big barrier, but we’re meeting more and more people who want to do the ride but are terrified of the distance,” she said. “Every year we’re just trying to create a better rider experience.” She said team members don’t all have to complete the same route; some can do the full 100km, and others can choose to ride 50km. “Camaraderie is so important,” she said, noting that many participants are on corporate teams. “They’re using Ride the Rideau to boost staff morale and staff fitness. It just gives people a chance to train together and fundraise together and build that team.” In just three years, Ride the Rideau has become the most successful single-day cancer

R E G I O N A L

fundraiser in Eastern Ontario. It has raised more than $4.4 million since it began, and riders have helped fund new therapies and the opening of the Centre for Innovative Cancer Research. Last year the event raised $1.74 million for cancer research with 718 cyclists taking the scenic tour along the world heritage site. Van Vliet hopes to have 1,000 cyclists this year, as well as 350 volunteers. She said they are on target and “tracking well ahead of last year” for registrations and fundraising. She said the foundation would like to surpass their biggest fundraising amount to date, $1.82 million. Leading up the event, organizers will offer group training rides, skill sessions and bike maintenance workshops. “Now’s the time (to register),” she said. “It allows for more time to train and also for fundraising.” To register or for more information visit ridetherideau. ca.

Ride the Rideau will take cyclists along the Rideau River on Sept. 7 as part of a major fundraiser for cancer research at the Ottawa Hospital.

He said he’s been passionate about the sport since he started, saying it’s all about the moments he is flying before landing an exercise. “I guess I just like being in the air,” Samuel said. “It feels like you are soaring. “It feels like you are doing the impossible, that you are

defying gravity.” The 14-year-old finished first in his age division on May 24 at the Canada Gymnastics Championships, held at Carleton University. Samuel credits his success to his determination to constantly improving his skills -- something that comes from training six days a week for around four hours a day. Samuel’s coach, Oleksandr Zavadych said he sees potential in his student, who picks him up from school and drives him to the gymnasium for practice. Samuel said the support he receives from his family, friends and coach has been integral to his training. “Without this support, I wouldn’t have the time to

The grueling schedule is made possible because the teen attends École secondaire catholique Franco-Cité, which Samuel said works around his training schedules, allowing him to leave early, or miss time because of competitions. The fight to the top is not

easy, however, Samuel admits, and there are times when he feels left out at either school. “I don’t really have a social life, to be honest,” Samuel said. “Sometimes at school, other kids will be talking about a television show that I don’t know about, and I feel left out. It’s a pain to feel like

that, but to know that I am doing what I love, it helps me feel like I am making the right choice.” Other times, he said he becomes his worst enemy, as he is in constant competition with himself. Samuel’s ultimate goal is to qualify for the 2020 Olympics, and if all goes well,

he would love to be considered an alternate at the 2016 Olympics. “Making it and representing my country would be amazing to me,” Samuel said. Battling back from an injury, Samuel said this year has been hard. A strain in his biceps threatened to see him forfeit some of the competition, but with only days before the national competition he managed to bounce back and take the top spot in his division. “At times when I get scared, but instead of thinking about the risks, I think about the steps to get through it,” he said. Injuries make it difficult to perform trickier moves, but sometimes it taking risks are required to be successful in competitions. “Injuries are stressful,” he said. “All the time you are taking risks, risks of really hurting yourself, but also, at the same time, you are also making yourself stronger -that’s the important part.” Samuel said once summer rolls around, he will take a break from training and competing, but not a long one. “Taking a break is nice, I’m happy to relax but then I get antsy and want to get back to it as soon as I can.”

Ottawa Race Weekend sees record turnout emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC sports - More than 40,000 people crossed the finish line as part of Ottawa Race Weekend. This was the 39th annual edition of the event on May 25 and 26, which included seven races ranging from a two-kilometre family race to a full 42km marathon. The races began downtown at the corner of Elgin Street and Laurier Avenue at 4 p.m. on Sunday, May 26 with the 2K event. At 5 p.m., more than 8,000 runners hit the streets for the 5K event, and at 6:30 p.m. the streets were again pummeled by 9,000 runners aiming for a finish line 10K away. On Sunday, the marathon started bright and early at 7 a.m. with the half-marathon following at 9 a.m. The marathon winner’s circle was dominated by runners from Ethiopia

and Kenya, with Tariku Jufar taking the top spot with a time of 2:08:04. The lead Canadian Rob Watson snuck into 10th place with 2:18:33. Ottawa resident Josh Karanja won the half marathon in 1:07:47. With so many people coming into the city for the weekend, spokeswoman Annie Boucher said organizers have the system down pat after 39 years. “There are always little tweaks I’m sure, a fencing thing or something, but as far as big tweaks or changes I didn’t hear of anything,” she said. “I think things went pretty smoothly.” The event was also a fundraiser, partnering with 28 different charities. The Ottawa Hospital Foundation raised more than $405,000. Boucher said it is difficult to know exactly how much money was raised, but in 2012 runners collected close to $1 million for charitable organizations.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ottawa launches third annual Tribuddy program to help train underprivileged children in swimming, cycling and running On May 7, 2013, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ottawa (BBBSO) launched the third annual Tribuddy program which matches youth between the ages of 8 and 14 with volunteer adult triathletes to help train in swimming, cycling and running. Since 2011, BBBSO has matched more than 30 underprivileged youth with adult triathletes and this year, Tribuddy has 16 matches, up from 11 in 2012. “We are very proud of the difference we have made in the lives of the youth involved in our program. Our adult buddies have also benefited from the program and in most cases have continued their participation,” says Gerry Thauvette, founder of the Tribuddy program. The goal of BBBSO’s Tribuddy program is to foster a positive and fun triathlon learning experience, and inspire youth to become active. “The best part of this program is being able to have fun and enjoy doing something,” says Mackenzie Prince, a third-year Tribuddy youth. “I won my first ever medal last year in the mountain biking category, but my favourite part is running.” The Tribuddy program’s success wouldn’t be possible without the support of local sponsors including Bushtukah, Mizuno and Zoot, as well as the help from volunteers. But, BBBSO is still short on supplies. To help the 16 participating children, BBBSO needs to raise $3,600 or receive the necessary gear, including bicycles, helmets, running shoes, and running clothes. If you’re interested in donating equipment, or would like more information about the Tribuddy program, please contact Jennifer Mitchell at 613-247-4776 ext. 317 or jennifer.mitchell@ bigbrothersbigsisters.ca. If you’d like to donate money to help the Tribuddy program, you can text Bigottawa to 45678 to make a $10.00 donation or donate online at www.bbbso.ca. R0012140642

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23

Don’t make assumptions this week, Aries. You just can’t trust your gut instincts too much right now. It’s better to get all of the facts and act accordingly.

Libra, you may feel more emotionally charged this week but you still have to think with your head and not your heart. A financial decision may need to reassessed.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21

SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22

Playing matchmaker isn’t so easy, Taurus. You have to understand when people are compatible and when there just isn’t a spark. Let this one go.

Scorpio, look at a situation with a practical eye. Is this really the best answer for the time being? Although you may be leaning one way, you might want to reconsider.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21

Gemini, you may have to pull back your focus on a problem in order to see it in a new light. Take some time away to regroup and then you can come back at full strength.

Sagittarius, you need to get work done this week and that can’t happen when you are continually distracted. You might have to nip this one in the bud -- quickly.

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20

A romantic relationship can be a balancing act, Cancer. You will learn this first hand this week when you have to come to a compromise with your partner.

A friend needs your support more than ever, Capricorn. Go to great lengths to give this person what they need, even if it means rearranging your schedule.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18

Leo, don’t apologize if you feel like you have to go your own way this week. Even when everyone seems to be going in another direction, sometimes you just have to set your own course.

An email or other correspondence from a past friend could stir up feelings you weren’t ready to deal with right now, Aquarius. Put this on the back burner until you are ready.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22

PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20

Virgo, while others may not be able to handle the confusion this week, you are fully capable of multi-tasking and making it through unscathed.
