Community - A neighbourhood known for its thriving arts scene will soon see a new addition to its diverse artistic landscape. A group of young people are spending their summer break crafting a urban art mural that will be affixed to the outside of Charlie’s Groceteria, located at the corner of Carruthers Avenue and Ladouceur Street. Guiding the kids through the process are Cassandra Dickie and Mike Davis, members of Ottawa Urban Arts – a group that aims to bring together the many elements of a community and foster artistic expression.

After meeting last week to brainstorm and discuss what elements they would like to put in the mural, the group will assemble their creation this week at the Hintonburg Community Centre. Later this summer the pieces will be attached to the exterior of the participating business. The mural project, part of the city’s youth engagement mural project, was helped by a grant from Crime Prevention Ottawa through its Paint It Up! program. Members of the Hintonburg Community Association applied for the grant. “We’ve been involved with the program the last four years, and have done 18 projects with Paint It Up!” said Dickie. “CPO gives grants to a partnership of youth organization, the location owner and the artist group… (Davis and I) both come from a background of graffiti and street art, which evolved into an active art form.

Laurier bike lane made permanent with little fanfare Laura Mueller

News - A once-controversial bike lane on Laurier Avenue was made permanent with little opposition and the blessing of local residents. Business groups that had been vocally opposed to the city’s first segregated lane for bicycles were absent as the city gave its blessing to make the lane a permanent fixture on Laurier Avenue West between Bronson Avenue and

Elgin Street. But one business owner, Ottawa’s famous hot-dog stand man, Terry Scanlon, waited all day to tell the committee he liked the lane. “Since the introduction of the bike lane, my sales have improved,” he said, adding he feels the complaints from other restaurants are not well founded. Cyclists stop to buy bottles of water from his cart, he said. A survey conducted amongst business owners on Laurier elicited 30 responses with 67 per

cent unfavourable towards the lanes. Twenty-three per cent of business respondents liked the lanes. “It seems to me there is enough information to show bike lanes save lives, and I support it,” Scanlon said. The two-year pilot project approved in February of 2011 saw pre-cast curbs, planters and collapsible posts installed along Laurier at a cost of $1.3-million. The city has set aside $150,000 to remove the lanes, but that

money will instead be put towards improvements. Tweaks to the lane have been made throughout the two-year pilot project in response to the concerns and that speaks to the project’s success, said Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes. Hans Moor, president of local advocacy group Citizens for Safe Cycling, was involved in establishing the lane and has been a strong proponent all along. See RAISED, page 23

Among them is Lucie Marleau, who has fundraised for the Humane Society for 24 of the past 25 years, and currently has an online donation page (Lucie Marleau/Gatineau) at The fun of the event coupled with the many odd animal sights are what keeps her coming back to the walkathon. “It’s a lot of fun and it keeps getting bigger every year,” said Marleau. “It’s the happiest place on earth.” This year’s event will feature a spokesdog named Milo – a oneyear-old Border Collie/Labrador mix who was taken to the Humane Society following a motor vehicle accident. Despite serious injuries requiring the amputation of one leg, Milo now has a new home and an important new role. Information on the many walkathon events and related schedule (as well as donation information) can be found at

mane society. “We’re pretty excited about that.” Recent walkathons took place in the west end of Ottawa, meaning this year’s event gives more people an opportunity to show up. A section of the Queen Elizabeth Driveway will be closed to accommodate the participants. The walkathon is aiming to raise $125,000, a symbolic number in that this year marks the 125th anniversary of the Humane Society itself. Already, Bélair said, one quarter of that amount has been raised. This year, a number of new events and fundraising ideas have been incorporated into the special day. For dog owners with a lot of energy to burn, the inaugural Run for the Animals promises a faster pace while raising $40,000 separately from the walkathon’s total. “The run was something we’d been approached by a third party to do,” said Bélair. “We looked into it – our director of development is a runner himself – and thought it would be a good fit to the walkathon.” Despite the event being two months away, participants have al-

Residents, developers find common ground on infill


News - Community members and builders often spar over balancing the desire to protect neighbourhoods with the need to maintain development potential, but at a recent meeting they did find some common ground over the factors that should be considered as the city drafts new infill design rules. While the first phase of the infill guidelines – currently under legal appeal from a group of developers – focused on parkways and greenery, the second phase gets to the heart of the issue: the height and mass of new homes in established communities inside the greenbelt. The fourth in a series of workshops was held at the Sandy Hill Community Centre on July 5 and Action Sandy Hill board member Sophie Beecher introduced participants to the context of the neighbourhood to kick off the session. “We seem to be at the crossroads of different pressures here in Sandy Hill,” she said, referencing the need to house students of the nearby University of Ottawa, transit-oriented development and the pressure of people wanting to move into a lowrise neighbourhood with good access to the downtown core. Sandy Hill is experiencing infill in a way that completely maximizes the building envelope, Beecher said. That’s what’s driving the need for new rules, city planner Carol Ruddy told the group she led during the workshop. “Now we’re seeing people maxing out the existing zoning capacity that has remained unused for 100 years, in some cases,” she said. “Zoning doesn’t necessarily reflect the character of the neighbourhood.” What was once a “trickle” of infill applications is now a flood, said city planning manager Alain Miguelez. More than 1,600 applications for small-scale infill housing have been filed with the city in the past five years. Participants groaned as Beecher showed photos of converted and expanded homes in Sandy Hill that dwarf their neighbours. That prompted Rolf Robillard, who works with local builder Prime Development and Constructors, to

defend his industry. “Why don’t we look forward?” he said. “These people didn’t do anything wrong.” “They didn’t do anything wrong,” Beecher conceded, but she added that doesn’t mean they are appropriate for the neighbourhood. Robillard said the city must proceed with caution when it comes to reducing the development potential of people’s properties. “You’re destroying the possibility of a homeowner selling the lot and making a profit,” he said. Both community members and developers alike overwhelmingly

agreed that building height is the most important factor to determine whether a home will complement neighbouring dwellings. “Height is the biggest element,” said Al Bateman, a local developer. “That sets the mass (of the building). Participants debated the need for side- and rear-yard setbacks and delved into a more esoteric discussion about the importance of distance from neighbours and privacy versus access to private greenspace and the environmental benefits of tree canopy and stormwater drainage. Action Sandy Hill board member

Chad Rollins said the rear-yard distance from a neighbouring property is almost as critical as the building’s height. “I never understood why a line could not be drawn at the existing building line in the backyards,” he said. Making all of the backyards along a street a uniform size would make the most sense, he said. All the participants acknowledged the challenge of defining specific design rules that could apply to all of the various neighbourhoods inside the greenbelt, but local builder Denis Michaud put it best: “We’re trying to


get subjective matters written down into rules,” he said. “That’s hard to do.” Feedback from the workshops will be used to draft some new rules that will be presented to the public in the early fall. The issue of converting homes into apartments or rooming houses for multiple residents was a frequently referenced concern during the meeting. Gauthier reminded participants that the city is undertaking a parallel study on home conversions and a public meeting on that issue will be held Sept. 16.

Canadian soldiers heading to Netherlands for 160-km march Nevil Hunt


������������������������� ����� ������� Nevil Hunt/Metroland

Soldiers stand in the Canadian War Museum during a parade to mark their upcoming trip to the Netherlands, where 178 troops will take part in a four-day march. Netherlands. Among those travelling to Europe for the 2013 march is Armed Forces reservist Steve Lasalle, who grew up in Barrhaven. Lasalle, 38, is a sublieutenant and a cadet instructor who works with the 96 Dundas Sea Cadet Corps, near Hamilton, Ont. He said he applied to be part of the Nijmegen march for three reasons – most importantly to “honour the sacrifice” of Canadians killed in action. “I also want to demonstrate to the cadets the aims of the program,” Lasalle said, listing physical fitness as a key aspect of being a cadet. He said he also wants to meet the test of marching 160 kilometres over four days. “It’s just psychological,” he said of the challenge. “The body is ready.” To get in shape, Lasalle

gets up early twice each week to cover 10 kilometres before work. He also meets the 10 other members of his team one evening every week and every Saturday and Sunday for longdistance marches. The team’s training started in January on an indoor track and moved outside as the weather improved. Since then the team has walked in all kinds of weather, including scorching heat. The weekend team marches begin and end in London, Ont., and Lasalle said, unlike Ottawans, Londoners aren’t used to seeing soldiers in uniform on their streets and trails. “The interaction with the community has been overwhelming,” Lasalle said. “It’s been very positive. People stop us and bring us water.” Former Nepean MP David Pratt, now a private consultant,

was on hand to wish the marchers farewell at the war museum. Pratt wore his medal from the 2003 march, which he completed while an MP and chair of the defence committee. Pratt said he fondly remembers the response of the Dutch public when the Canadian contingent passed. He also remembers walking about 500 kilometres during training for the Netherlands march, and watching some Canadian soldiers cut the boots off their swollen feet when they finished the march. “It’s one of the toughest things I’ve ever done,” Pratt said of the four-day march. “I salute everybody taking part. It’ll be a life-changing experience.” Canadians can follow the Canadian soldiers on Facebook as they march in the Netherlands. Search for “Joint Task Force Nijmegen.”

News - Canadian soldiers will walk in the footsteps of their forefathers when they visit the Netherlands later this month. Over four days, members of the Canadian Armed Forces will cover 160 kilometres on foot as they take part in the International Four Days Marches Nijmegen. All 178 members will wear their standard uniforms and carry a pack weighing at least 10 kilograms as they walk the same terrain where many Canadian soldiers died while liberating the Netherlands during the Second World War. The Nijmegen marches began in 1909 as part of the training for Dutch soldiers. The fourday event has since become an international phenomenon, drawing both civilian and military walkers. This will be the 61st year that members of Canada’s military have been part of the four-day march. Many of the soldiers who will walk from July 16 to 19 met at the Canadian War Museum on July 3 for a departure parade attended by Rochus Pronk, the deputy head of mission at the Dutch embassy. “This is the largest walking event in the world,” Pronk said to the soldiers gathered at the museum. “There will be about 45,000 people from all over the world.” Pronk said that 7,600 Canadians died liberating his nation. “The Netherlands remains forever thankful,” he said, adding that the walk symbolizes “the rock-solid bonds of friendship” between Canada and the

39-storey tower proposed for Somerset River Ward City Councillor @CouncillorMcRae Conseillère, quartier Rivière

Keeping Your Children Safe & Secure – S.E.A.T.S for Kids

News - With Claridge Homes now proposing a 39-storey condo tower adjacent to the OTrain tracks and Somerset Street Bridge, the Hintonburg Community Association is looking to ensure the impact on the neighbourhood is limited. Last month Claridge approached the community with its plan to develop 1040 Somerset St., which is located on the south side, east of Breezehill Avenue. The Somerset-fronting property to the west of the site is already owned by Claridge and zoned for a 23-storey residential building. The proposed building would contain 338 residential units in a slim tower atop a four-storey podium, with 162 vehicle parking spaces along with spots for 124 bicycles. Association president Jeff Leiper said Claridge vice president Neil Malhotra spoke to association members about the project in a pre-consultation meeting. Several aspects of the project met with approval, at least from Leiper, though the community holds reservations about other elements, including traffic flow. “We congratulated the developer on hiring a good, Torontobased architect,” said Leiper. “It’s good to see one of the city’s reputable developers taking the city’s challenge for better build-

ing design and stepping up to the plate.” Traffic flow in the area is constrained by narrow roads, sharp corners and limited sightlines. As well, the close proximity of Devonshire Public School makes vehicle speed and cut-through traffic a concern. “We don’t want to exacerbate traffic problems on Breezehill,” said Leiper, adding that sightlines on the Somerset bridge would make signalizing the intersection a challenge. While Leiper also agreed with the low parking capacity (representing one vehicle space for every two units – the lowest the city can allow), he asked Malhotra – and will continue to advocate for – a drop in building height to a maximum of 30 storeys. The neighbouring 23-storey tower, if built, would mitigate the 1040 Somerset tower’s height by standing between the community and the new development. However, the HCA would still like to see 30 storeys or less built. While the site would have to be rezoned in order to achieve this height, the parcel of land is designated a mixed-use centre, which supports a wide variety of building uses. “We know it’s going to be tall and I still have to talk to the membership to see how they want to fight this, if at all.” The site is just outside the edge of the boundaries of the Bayview Station community de-

That plan would see the addition of varying density to the empty area around Bayview Station, including the City Centre site. Close proximity to two major rapid transit lines

makes the site a good candidate for high-density development, Leiper admits. No planning committee date has been set for the proposal, and a public meeting would have to be held first.

Byelections only delay inevitable


yelections are traditionally an opportunity for voters to protest public policy and punish the government. But Premier Kathleen Wynne has taken it one step further by scheduling five byelections on Aug. 1 – a couple days before the start of a long weekend – and in effect punishing the voters, by staging a vote during the dead of summer. The byelections were triggered by the resignations of five Liberals, including former premier Dalton McGuinty, long-time MPP of Ottawa South. The scheduling of the byelections is a little suspicious -- is the government hoping to escape the lash of the voter by staging them during a time that will attract the minimum number of people? We’re not talking about the dyed-in-wool Liberal/ Conservatives/NDP supporters, the kind who would cast their ballots in the middle of a hurricane. No, the timing of the summer byelection is aimed squarely at the balance of the electorate: the undecideds, the swing vote and, of course, the cottage country enthusiasts. In a perfect world, every Ontarian would take it as their duty to vote in every election, be they federal, provincial or municipal. But we don’t live in a perfect world, and we

only need to look at the dismal turnout for the last provincial election to prove that. A byelection figures to attract a remarkably smaller crowd. When scheduling an election, a government should endeavour to hold it during a time period designed to attract the most people possible. Unfortunately, this is a truism that only holds if the government actually wants people to vote. In fact, Premier Kathleen Wynne wants to avoid an election – byelection or general – for as long as humanly possible. For the few months she’s been in power, the fledgling premier has been bailing water for the Good Ship Liberal, cleaning up the mess left behind by Dalton McGuinty, who resigned shortly before the government was hammered with scandals, such as the gas plant fiasco and a police investigation of the Ornge air ambulance service. Meanwhile, the electorate waits with baited and steaming breath, looking to wreak vengeance on the Liberals by cleaning house in the next general election. While we commend the political acumen of our premier, she might want to consider simply biting the bullet and holding a general election – not during a civic holiday – as soon as possible. To do otherwise is just delaying the inevitable.


Coming soon to a corner store near you – or not


here was some excitement in the newspapers recently over the possibility of beer and wine being sold in corner stores in Ontario. This is always a big story whenever it reappears, as it always does. A good guess is that it is a big story because beer and wine are important to journalists, the people who make the decisions about what’s a big story. It’s not important because journalists like beer and wine more than the next fellow does. It’s important because journalists think it should be more important. There’s a self-image thing at work here. Newspaper people have long had the reputation of being hard drinkers. For some reason they like that reputation, even though it has long ceased to be deserved. Once it certainly was, but these days, if you go out to lunch with five newspaper guys, the heavy drinker will be the one ordering Perrier while the others all have tap water. Anyway, beer in the corner store becomes a big story, just like the ones that say wine is good for your heart. Wishful thinking is what it is and journalists are just as capable of it as anyone else. This year’s version of the big story carried the headline “Sousa won’t rule out store

When a politician is asked a question and won’t answer definitely one way or another, the journalist’s last resort is to ask: “Would you rule it out?� Very few politicians dare to rule anything out completely, because they need to leave room to change their minds. So they say no, they wouldn’t rule it out, and you get a headline like that.

Wednesday whether he’d allow convenience stores to sell booze, Sousa wouldn’t rule it out.� He wouldn’t rule it in either, despite being asked repeatedly, and probably for good reason. No one has come up with much in the way of justification for making the change. Customers aren’t suffering from the current system. In all but the most remote areas, no one is very far away from a Beer Store or an LCBO. The main impetus for the current discussion is the Mac’s convenience store chain, which says it will create jobs. It might also create trouble, which is probably why previous Ontario governments haven’t ruled the idea in. It is difficult enough now to keep booze out of the hands of underage drinkers and those who have had more than enough in an evening. Putting the corner store into the picture is going to increase the difficulty. Sure, the idea of creating jobs is nice, but the people in those jobs will have an unfair burden placed upon them. While employees for the LCBO and the Beer Store are wellpaid and well-trained to handle difficult situations, is it fair or realistic to ask the same of a convenience store employee, often working alone late at night?

If some greater good was involved, maybe that would be worth the risk, but it is difficult to see where the greater good is. Shorter distances, longer hours? Certainly Charles Sousa’s predecessors have had difficulty seeing it. They might even think that Ontario has more urgent priorities, even if wine really is good for your heart. The only remaining question is why, given all this, Sousa is not more unequivocal on the subject. It may just be that he understands his role in the press conference games journalists play. I wouldn’t rule that out.

Nature: the least important most important thing


nyone who has watched Mad Men religiously for six seasons, as I have, will remember Don Draper’s classic line: “We’re creative, the least important most important thing there is.” I was meditating on this line during my morning run on the Rockcliffe Parkway and it occurred to me that, in a different context, “the least important most important thing” to humans is our natural environment. Last month, the Ontario government officially killed the plan in its current form to construct an interprovincial bridge at Kettle Island. I’m sure the cheers in my neighbourhood were heard across the city when the news broke. At the announcement, held in front of the Montfort Hospital on June 17, Transportation Minister Glenn

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse Murray cited the interruption to ambulance traffic as one of the primary reasons for the province’s rejection of the Kettle Island plan. That’s often been on the lengthy list of arguments against the bridge proposal. But top of mind for residents and the politicians that represent them has been the impact a bridge would have on the natural environment bordering the Aviation and Rockcliffe Parkways. Despite this, for years, the National Capital Commission has undervalued the impact of the bridge on sensitive

ecosystems in the area. More importantly, it has ignored the integral role of nature to the people that live in the surrounding neighbourhoods. Instead, the NCC continued to fork over millions of taxpayer dollars to an outside consulting firm, with the Kettle Island proposal predetermined as the best option. Unfortunately, as with so many things in modern society, the primary reason Kettle Island has been the favourite is because it was predicted to be the least expensive option. But that argument only holds if we only think about value

in terms of money. What if we actually took the time to consider the value of the natural environment? The trees and wildlife east of downtown and bordering the Ottawa River are not merely nice to look at. They are essential to the emotional, intellectual and physical wellbeing of city residents. This is especially true as we collectively face the challenge of maintaining and altering a city that will accommodate our aging population. Mayor Jim Watson is devoting a lot of his personal energy these days to the examination of a city that will be senior-friendly. An aging population means health care costs are set to increase. It means that senior-friendly housing needs to be top of mind for developers. It means that any transit plan put in place will have to be accessible

for people with varying disabilities. All these things are important. Also important is to have a city where not just seniors but all residents can have easy access to the natural environment. There

overall and better overall mental health. Even those with mental health issues -depression, attention deficit disorder and stress -- have found that regular interaction with nature mitigates symptoms.

Unfortunately, as with so many things in modern society, the primary reason Kettle Island has been the favourite is because it was predicted to be the least expensive option. But that argument only holds if we only think about value in terms of money. are a vast number of studies that link human connection with nature to everything good: people that have parks nearby are more likely to actively commute, have lower blood pressure, lower BMI, fewer health issues

As the city and province go forward, as proposed by Murray, to create a master transit plan, we can only hope that nature is considered, at minimum as the least important most important thing.

City’s wildlife strategy doesn’t go far enough: opponents Laura Mueller

News - Critics said the city’s new wildlife strategy didn’t go far enough to protect beavers before it was approved by the agriculture and rural affairs committee on July 4. The city has been picking away at a wildlife strategy since early 2010, when council ordered a review following a series of issues with coyotes. Since then, a number of moose have had to be destroyed and urban sprawl has introduced suburban homes to areas that have habitats for animals like wild turkeys. Liz White, spokesperson, Ontario Wildlife Coalition, said the city’s claim that the strategy will reduce the number of beaver killed is unrealistic. She sat on the working group for the wildlife strategy but resigned in 2012 over disagreements with the policy’s direction. “There are no protections for beaver in the vast majority of the city of Ottawa if you pass this strategy,” she said. Currently, the city traps and kills around 150 beavers each year. Stow said the city could

The fences

ing the culverts. But there is no funding in place to pay for those devices, which can cost between $200 and $2,000, depending in the type, Stow said. The strategy proposing a “balanced and humane approach” received little vetting from about a dozen delegates who spoke to planning committee. For the most part, they focused on deficiencies in the process used to arrive at the strategy. They called for an additional public meeting. Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt urged speakers to provide substantive feedback so the committee could address if there are parts of the policy that need beefing up. There is still opportunity to make minor changes before the policy goes to council on July 17, said Nick Stow, the city planner who authored the report. He encouraged people to submit “constructive feedback.” Stow said another public meeting wouldn’t be helpful because the major issues, conflicts and solutions have been identified. Rehashing worries

about beaver management, euthanasia and educational materials – the most controversial elements – would just be repetitive and not productive, Stow said. “The biggest issue is (that) we have is people from the urban area moving into the rural area,” said West CarletonMarch Coun. Eli El-Chantiry. People who grew up in a rural area often have the basic knowledge and skills needed to deal with wildlife, but people from an urban area may not. The new wildlife strategy emphasizes that many human-wildlife conflicts can be prevented or solved by better understanding the dynamic. “Many conflicts result from carelessness or lack of knowledge of private citizens and public officials regarding the needs and behaviours of wildlife, especially urban wildlife. Property owners may inadvertently create the conditions that attract wildlife and put them at risk,” the proposed strategy reads. Alastaire Henderson, a Lowertown east resident who

spoke to the committee, said she felt the consultation on the strategy started out with more consideration of the effects of wildlife in urban areas as well as rural areas, but became a rural-focused issue as the project drew to a close. Iola Price, a New Edinburgh resident and wildlife biologist, agreed. “The growth of trees and shrubs in urban areas … means wildlife will continue to move into the urban areas,” she said. El-Chantiry said the city needs to do more than simply post information on a website when it comes to informing the public about what to do when they encounter wildlife. Stow said the city does put together an information package for new residents, but admitted many people probably don’t bother reading it. He said adding a wildlife resources officer would create a point person who could respond to concerns and undertake targeted education. The city will be using the wildlife strategy as direction when it drafts documents and educational materials to support the strategy. Planning an urban wildlife speaker series and additional school outreach should also help spread the word about how to deal with wildlife, Stow said. City planning manager Lee Ann Snedden added that her department could write up some materials the councillors could use to help promote the strategy and offer opportunities for input to contribute to tweaking the strategy and its implementation. The city’s role is limited when it comes to dealing with conflicts between people and animals on private property. Most of that responsibility is supposed to lay with the provincial Ministry of Natural Resources. But that department has been neutered over time by incremental budget cuts, El-Chantiry said – leaving the city to pick up the slack. “In the absence of the MNR doing their job, we are trying to be nice (and) pick up the slack,” he said.

Artist chips away at another Brighton oak sculpture Second art piece of massive tree to be installed at Carleton University

News - Old Ottawa South residents will soon have a chance to see another portion of the Brighton Beach oak tree reborn. It was just a year ago that Westboro artist David Fels and Carleton University unveiled the first sculpture from the trunk of the tree. Now the sculptor is working on “take two” for him and the tree. “I learned a lot about the nature of a bur oak tree, specifically this tree; how it moves and how I move with it, but with this piece, it’s almost like a new start,” Fels said. The first sculpture, Sailing through Time, is on display in the lobby of Carleton University’s River Building as a symbol of the university’s commitment to accessibility. Fels said this new piece will represent inclusiveness. “The tree was a part of the community and it will continue to be,” he said. “It will be available to view in a public

space where anyone will be able to visit.” The sculpture will take around three to four months with an aim to be complete in time for the university’s 2014 International Summit on Accessibility. The oak tree was estimated to be more than 200 years old when it was cut down in August 2011 due to storm damage. Shortly after it came down Larry McCloskey, director of Carleton’s Paul Menton Centre for Students with Disabilities, approached the university with the idea of recreating the fallen tree into a sculpture. “One day I was out walking my dog and I saw the Brighton Beach slowly falling down. So I called the city and I was in talks with them for two years,” he said. The piece, McCloskey said, is a masterpiece in itself, and will be the logo for the summit. The university said negotiations are underway to move the finished piece to the Ottawa Convention Centre, lo-

“We want to encourage youth to elevate their skills and make it a positive thing.” The group planning the Charlie’s Groceteria mural are younger than most program participants, ranging from 10 to 12 years of age. Despite this, the main messages taught through the program are no different than with older kids. “We educate them on the positive and negative sides of graffiti on the community,” said Davis, adding the program is adjustable to any age group. He said that when a group starts out, they brainstorm on the main issues present within a community, then debate (and experiment) on how to turn those issues into positive imagery. The workshop-type environment breaks kids away from the individual-type art projects that are common in schools, and helps teach social skills.

experience carving wood and stone. The trunk is located under an alcove of the Architecture Building at the university. Fels has memorized the 14foot long, 4,000-pound piece of oak, working the design out in his head, much like a computer program. “Normally I have a number

of ideas or concepts swirling around in my mind and the Paul Menton Centre wanted a piece on inclusivity and accessibility, an idea I’ve been grappling with over the years,” he said. When he is done, the artist said it will be less than half that weight, but remain just as long and the end result will slightly resemble the symbol for infinity. When it comes to carving, Fels said it is incredibly intricate and he has to be careful, because he cannot make a wrong cut -- one wrong move and the sculpture is no longer the plan he came up with. The artist, who has worked with many different materials, different types of wood and stone over the years, said he is enjoying the history that comes along with working with this oak. “I love the interaction I have with this oak, it’s dynamic and historic and incredible to work with,” People walking by the Architecture Building at the university will be able to see Fels whittle away at the oak for the next few months while he completes his project.

Firebelly’s electric blues seeks to soothe the soul

Entertainment - Firebelly will flex its electric muscles at Bluesfest for the first time this July 13. Band members Fredy Carrière, Dan Grewal and Mike McNeil knew each other for many years before coming together to play a few tunes with fellow musician Mathieu Gagnon one December night. It

was shortly after that evening that the band now known as Firebelly formed. Carrière said it was that particular winter evening jam session at the Rainbow Bistro that sparked the beginnings of the band. “From the first song, all of us knew we were on to something that night,” Carrière said. “(We) are good friends who enjoy creating and improvising. Each member contributes their unique personality and


musical talent to the band.” The band has been moving quickly through the Ottawa-Gatineau music scene and will mark the first of what they hope will be many Bluesfest gigs on July 13 when they take to the Black Sheep stage at 5 p.m. The sound of Firebelly offers blues fans something a little different – an electric harp has been thrown into the mix. Gagnon is the lead singer and harp player. Carrière said Gagnon is a captivating storyteller, with the rare ability to make the audience feel as though they are living through the song. “It’s his sweet, powerful voice and electrifying harp playing,” he said. This electric harp is combined with the smooth and funky bass guitar playing by Grewal, McNeil’s lively drums and the guitar playing of Carrière to create what the band describes as a “stripped down” blues sound, influenced by blues legends such as Muddy Waters, Sonny Boy, B.B. King, Albert King, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Buddy Guy. The band also incorporates

He is looking for a new forever home. Michou is a fun-loving cat who loves to play. He’s a sweet little boy who

would also be content just snuggling up in a sunny patch in his new forever home. He’s also a bit of a social butterfly who likes to make friends, so he’d make a great second cat. He gets along with everyone! Michou is declawed so he’d need to be an indoor-only pet.

Meet Lance (ID#A154622). He is a neutered male, black and white Siberian husky and akita mix. He is about two years old and was transferred to the OHS from another shelter on April 11. Lance is a smart dog who loves to keep busy. He enjoys long walks and would be happiest with an active owner. He’d really like a fenced yard with lots of space to run around. This handsome boy is also a little vain: he really likes his weekly brushings! Lance would be happiest in a home with teens and adults who can encourage him to be the best dog possible. To find out more about Michou and Lance, stop by the Adoption Centre at 245 West Hunt Club Road weekdays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Check out the OHS website at www. to see photos and descriptions of all of the animals available for adoption, or call 613725-3166 ext 258.

The band will be performing at the Calabogie Blues and Ribfest this Aug. 16 as well as other local venues, such as the Rainbow Bistro, the Atomic Rooster and Irene’s.

This is Bianco who adopted us some years ago. He was a street resident of the Main St. Lees Ave area. He had decided that he liked our backyard and refused to go away. When no one answered our ad re “found white cat”, we named him Bianco and he very gladly moved in. The two incumbent residents Charlemagne and Josephine were not too happy at first to have a less aristocratic cat than they themselves are, move in with them, but in a short time they all became good friends. Bianco is very loveable appreciative and cuddly, and a more appropriate name would have been “my shadow”.

such as hamsters, rabbits and birds, who’d love to find a new permanent home with you, so be sure to stop by to visit! For some extra party fun, all cats adopted that day will go home with a special gift — a free Kitty Flick to start building their toy chest. The party celebrates the new hours at the OHS. Beginning July 14, the OHS Adoption Centre and Municipal Animal Shelter will be open every Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. These extra hours will help more of our animal friends find a home, or get back home even more quickly.

Ottawa City Councillor — Bay Ward Dear Neighbours, The month of June saw us attending numerous community activities and graduations. High School graduation is a huge milestone in a young person’s life. I was happy to return to my old High School, Woodroffe, wish the graduates continued academic success and participate in their commencement ceremony. As Chair of Community and Protective Services I was also pleased to attend the Recruit Graduation for Ottawa Fire Services. After months of studying and training the Ottawa Fire Services welcomed 24 new men and women to the Ottawa Fire Department. Congratulations to all! Canvassing... Over the coming weeks my team and I will take advantage of the warmer weather and longer days. We will be out knocking on doors throughout the summer as we connect with you, the residents of Bay Ward. We want to hear how things are going in your neighbourhood. Canvassing gives me the opportunity to speak with many of you and to find out what’s important to you.

Jack Pine fired up about Bluesfest gig

Entertainment - When the members of Jack Pine and the Fire take to the stage at RBC Ottawa Bluesfest on July 11, it will be a high point in a musical collaboration that began in an unusual way. Led by Gareth Auden-Hole (aka Jack Pine), the five-piece Ottawaarea band only started playing regular gigs following the Dec. 2011 release of their first album. Bucking the norm of playing extensively before heading to the studio, Jack Pine and the Fire was assembled from long-time collaborators known to Auden-Hole, formerly of the band Slack Jawed Sinners. “It’s kind of backwards,” admits Auden-Hole. “We started recording music at the start of 2011, but the band didn’t exist until after the album was released.” Helped by grant money from the city, the creation of the self-titled album was a “hope for the best” experiment that paid off once people took notice of their music and started snapping up the album. Made up of frontman (vocalist, guitarist and mandolin-player) Auden-Hole, guitarist Andre Desroches, drummer Tim Watson, bassist Martin Newman, and dobro player Stuart Rutherford, the acoustic singer-songwriter outfit hails from all over the Ottawa area. Auden-Hole lives in Gatineau, but is a native of the Glebe and Old Ottawa South, Desroches lives in Hull, Rutherford and Newman reside in Mechanicsville and Hintonburg, while Watson hails from the Glebe. Self-described as a “string band with drums,” Jack Pine and the Fire’s musical genre can only be described as alt-folk-country. While they are rooted in traditional North American folk and country stylings, the band incorporates a diverse array of musical influences and string instruments to create their unique sound. “We’re all acoustic and that’s a

staple of our sound,” said AudenHole, who works as an audio engineer by day. “It’s important to me to stay acoustic and for us (to remain) a string band.” Currently, the members are accumulating new material that could be used on a future album. The Bluesfest gig on July 11 – appearing the same night as classic Ca-

nadian rockers The Tragically Hip – is causing a resurgence of interest in the band, admits Auden-Hole. “It’s actually really exciting,” said Auden-Hole. “It’s great to be on the (lineup) list this year.” An abbreviated version of the band – billed as the Jack Pine Trio – are regulars at Irene’s Pub in The Glebe, playing Sunday nights.

Upcoming Spring into Action-Meet Your Services Fairs are planned for: August 24 – at the Carp Farmer’s Market September 20 – at the Kanata 55+ Expo October 24 – at the Ron Kolbus Lakeside Centre. vOlunteer serviCe You may recall reading about our new volunteer service project. We have had such positive feedback and interest I wanted to mention it again; we will ask residents to volunteer as we continue to renew and rebuild our west end neighbourhoods. In exchange for their hard work, there will be rewards. I’ve been listening and heard from our community that employment; accreditation and education are often locked behind the barriers of income, opportunity and access. In today’s workforce, being trained in your discipline alone may get you in on the ground floor but the elevator to the higher floors is usually reserved for those who have acquired additional skills. Everyone knows that you need experience to get a job and you can’t get a job without experience. By offering access to training, certificates, mentorship and networking opportunities there will be a real reward for the hard work that volunteers invest. I would encourage you to watch our website for more details. If you represent an organization that has a project in need of volunteers please let us know. As always, please feel free to contact me at our City Hall or Community office, or reach out to me on social media. Visit our website to learn much more about our community and to stay up to date on what’s new. Best wishes to you and your family for a cool and restful summer. Sincerely,

Older adult Plan/sPring intO aCtiOn As Co-Chair of the City’s Older Adult Plan I am excited about the progress we have made and the initiatives we have introduced to ensure our City is and continues to be age-friendly. We have to recognise the growing needs of our older residents but also our aging population. Outside of Victoria British Columbia, there are more seniors in Bay Ward per capita than anywhere else in Canada. By 2031 there will be more seniors in our City than children under the age of 15. Our City is taking the necessary steps to ensure older residents have the services they need and have access to those services. Recently the City held the first of many Spring into Action – Meet Your Services Fairs. These fairs provide visitors with a variety of information all in an effort to keep them healthy, safe and living comfortably in their homes. It is also an opportunity to encourage those who attend to participate and make use of our City’s services. One initiative which was just launched is an esubscription service. You can sign up to receive notifications about services, activities and events for Older Adults. You can find more information and sign up by visiting the Older Adult web page at:

The Company of Fools launches its 10th year of Shakespeare in the park with The Merry Wives of Windsor in Strathcona Park on July 3.

Shakespeare troupe ready to let the foolishness begin

Entertainment - A Company of Fools is once again hanging out in parks for your comedy pleasure this summer. The theatre troop opened up its 10th Torchlight Shakespeare season on July 3 in Strathcona Park with The Merry Wives of Windsor at 7 p.m. The Fools, who travel across the region and perform in community parks all summer long, offer patrons the chance to view Shakespeare under the stars. “In 2003, the Fools created what has since become our signature event – the annual Torchlight Shakespeare series,” the company posted on its website. “This event makes Shakespeare accessible by taking it out of the theatre and into neighbourhood parks each summer, allowing the Fools to bring our unique brand of Shakespeare right to

your back yard.” In keeping with the company’s foolish-fun, only six actors will take on the roles of more than 15 characters for the play, which is directed by Cartriona Leger. The shows will run from July 3 to Aug. 17 with a 7 p.m. start time each evening. While the shows are free for all, a hat will be passed around the audience to collect donations. The company will be visiting city parks from Orléans to Stittsville and every where in between. The Company of Fools is Ottawa’s oldest professional Shakespeare company and to celebrate its 24th year in operation and the 10th anniversary of the torchlight series, the festivities will continue into the fall this year with Torchlight Too: Hal & Falstaff. This second Torchlight will offer an adaptation of Henry IV Part 1 and 2 with bits of Henry V and Richard II

thrown into the mix. The play will be adapted and directed by founding Fool Margo MacDonald. This indoor production will tour to three different venues from Sept. 2 to 22. Tickets will be “pay what you can” donation, but audiences will have the option to purchase tickets in advance, guaranteeing admittance, by booking ahead on for $20 per person. Both the summer productions will feature the same group of talented artists – some familiar faces to Fools fans and some brand new foolish actors: Simon Bradshaw, John Doucet, Melanie Karin, Matthew John Lundvall, Geoff McBride and Katie Ryerson. Vanessa Imeson will design the costumes and sets for both productions. More information and a detailed schedule can be found at or by contacting the Fools at 613-863-7529.

City looks at LRT station names Ottawa West News staff

News - OC Transpo is looking for a moniker for its version of the “tube.â€? Ottawa’s first light-rail system and first underground transit line, which has been deemed “Confederation Lineâ€? while under construction, will need a permanent name. OC Transpo is also in the midst of coming up with a new name for the O-Train, as well as an overall name for Ottawa’s rail system. Think the MĂŠtro in Montreal, or London’s “tube.â€? Names for the 13 stations between Tunney’s Pasture and Blair will remained largely unchanged when they are converted to light rail in 2018. Six stations will remain the same, including Bay, Lees, Hurdman, St. Laurent, Cyrville and Blair. But, OC Transpo is recommending several changes: • Tunney’s Pasture will be shortened to “Tunney’sâ€? • Downtown West will be-

come “Kent Station.â€? • Downtown East will become “Parliament.â€? • The station under the Rideau Centre will become, predictably, “Rideau.â€? • “uOttawaâ€? is being proposed for Campus station to identify which campus it serves. • Train station will become “Tremblay,â€? to avoid confusion with other train stations. OC Transpo is currently in discussions with the Algonquins of Ontario to rename LeBreton Station. You can weigh in with your suggestions and vote on the proposed names by July 24 by going to www.octranpos. com. Final naming recommendations will be brought to the transit commission for approval on Aug. 21. OC Transpo’s manager of transit planning and reporting, Pat Scrimgeour, said station names need to be linked to their geographical location – preferably street names – to help pas-

sengers find their way. Fifty of the 51 transit stations in Ottawa have geographic names. OC Transpo is recommending no external advertising be allowed on the trains do to concerns about damaging the trains or “degrading� the overall light rail experience. Internal advertising in both stations and the trains themselves will be allowed, but OC Transpo is recommending the first five years of advertising be dedicated to “getting to know the system.� “From all perspectives, (we would) focus on the issues of wayfinding, safety, and public information in support of the line,� said David Pepper, OC Transpo’s manager of business and operational services branch. The city will also be finalizing the interior design for the trains by Aug. 21. With files from  Laura Mueller and Alex Boutilier, Metro News

Volunteers Marie-Anick Brazeau, left, Ankush Aggarwl and Murrray Fleming chop vegetables for the mobile kitchen at Bluesfest. There are two shifts of 25 volunteers that prep food at Algonquin College every day of the festival to provide the meals for the volunteers at Lebreton Flats.

You can’t rock out on an empty stomach

News - The day before Grand Funk Railroad was set to hit the stage for opening night at Bluesfest, the kitchens in the hospitality building at Algonquin College were all fired up. Scott Warrick, an instructor in the college’s culinary arts program, has been preparing meals for volunteers at the festival for the last five years. “It’s great because we have some people who come back, (to cook) year after year,” he said, adding he has even recruited people into the college’s culinary program after their volunteer stint. Warrick likens the process to a military kitchen. Fifty volunteers – spread over two four-hour shifts each day - pre-

pare food for more than 1,500 volunteers on the ground at Lebreton Flats. Having volunteers come back saves on the first aid supplies, Warrick joked, saying the first year there were a lot of Band-Aids and finger protectors handed out. Volunteers prepare dishes like tandoori chicken, fruit salads, pasta salads and a whole selection of items like burgers and fries. The food is made in the kitchens at Algonquin and then sent to the festival in a 16-metre mobile kitchen trailer. “Salads are really popular,” Warrick said, adding an average of 2,000 fruit salads are consumed each day by Bluesfest volunteers.

tional, handles the volunteers onsite. She’s gets to Lebreton Flats at 1 p.m. every weekday and by 9:30 a.m. on the weekend. Her team includes about 220 servers. She said a lot of them are between the ages of 15 and 17, looking to get their volunteer hours while checking out the local music scene. “It’s often the first experience they have doing anything like this,” Dewar said. Working with young volunteers has its perks though, she said. “We have had a lot come back. I have even seen some through to graduation,” Dewar said. This is Dewar’s fourth year volunteering at the festival. She started doing it because of a love for music but now it’s interacting with the volunteers that keep her coming back. “I always try to sneak away to see some acts, but it never really works out, because it’s hard to leave and I don’t really want to,” she said.

Ottawa West News EMC - Thursday, July 11, 2013

Sports - It was a busy day at Carlington Park when a number of all-star players came out to the community field to play a little baseball for charity. Former baseball star Jose Canseco, boxing champion Riddick Bowe, Pittsburgh Penguins prospect Clark Seymour, former National Hockey League player Doug Smith and former football player and wrestler Glenn Kulka joined organizer and baseball fan Evan Malamud for the Home Runs for Autism fundraiser on July 6 at the community park. The group of heavy-weight stars formed two teams – Team Baseball and Team Hockey – to compete in a home run derby challenge. “This is a great cause, and everyone should help raise some money,” Canseco said. Malamud started this fundraiser in 2012 when he had challenged Canseco over

Twitter to a derby, in hopes he would show and help raise money for autism. Canseco took on the challenge and came to Ottawa free of charge to help raise as much as he could for the charity. Malamud won the derby against his favourite baseball player. The event took place at the Ottawa Baseball Stadium in May 2012 and raised more than $10,000 for CHEO. This charity is close to Malamud’s heart as his oldest son Jaedyn was diagnosed as autistic at the age of two and since the diagnosis Malamud and his family have spent a lot of time at CHEO for their autism services. A year later, Malamud and Canseco were back at it, joking around like old pals and playing for the same team. “He beat me last year so I though it would be better to play with him,” Canseco told the crowd. To prove this event was more about raising money for

autism and less about egos, the 45-year-old Bowe, a two-time world heavyweight champion, picked up a baseball bat for the first time in 32 years to help. Canseco said this would become an annual event, so even if people missed it this year, they should come out for next year’s challenge. Both teams knocked a few balls out of the park, and making up for last year, Canseco went yard a number of times over the course of the afternoon. An all-star game followed the derby, with members of both the Carleton Ravens and the Ottawa Gee Gees playing alongside Canseco and Bowe. Two fans donated $120 and $125 to play on Team Hockey for the game. The friendly event had the players and fans mingling together, where Canseco signed balls, hats and shirts and Bowe sat in the stands and chatted with the crowd. Malamud said the organization will take the next few weeks to tally to the total and present CHEO with a cheque shortly after.

Raised section to be added in 2014 were not in favour of keeping it and 25 per cent did like the lane among the 119 people who responded. Colin Simpson, the transportation planner in charge of the project, said travel times for motorists haven’t changed much and response times for emergency vehicles have actually improved.

Continued from page 1

“I think the Laurier bike lane is a service to all the people who said if there was safer infrastructure, they would jump on a bike, and I think they did,” Moor said. The portion of the lane on the north side of Laurier between Bronson Avenue and Bay Street will be converted into a raised cycling track in 2014. Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley spoke at length against cycle tracks, which he feels will contribute to dangerous conflicts between cyclists and pedestrians by putting bikes at the same level as the sidewalk. Residents who live in the west end of Laurier who had previously launched a vocal media campaign opposing the lanes sent representatives to say they are now taking a more conciliatory approach. “We do believe in fair sharing of the road,” said Janine Hutt, a representative of the group called the Bay/Bronson Residents’ Action Group for Fair Access to the Road. A survey of residents showed that 63 per cent of people living along the lane

When we build amazing infrastructure, even if it’s only one piece at a time … it will be used. Kathleen Wilker, Hintonburg Cycling Champions

The number of cyclists using Laurier Avenue West has more than tripled after the segregated lanes were introduced. At the lane’s busiest point at Metcalfe Street, daily cycling volumes typically exceeded 2,500 cyclists during the warmer seasons. The study also showed a 27

per cent reduction in the number of reported collisions. Kathleen Wilker of the Hintonburg Cycling Champions said the lane has given her young children the confidence to bike downtown. “When we build amazing infrastructure, even if it’s only one piece at a time … it will be used,” she said. Another resident of Laurier Avenue West, Lynne Genik, said she uses the lane often and it has reduced the number of cyclists trying to navigate on sidewalks because they feel unsafe on the road. The raised cycle track section of the Laurier lane will eventually connect with a multi-use pathway that will be built through the school board lands at Bronson and Laurier, which will eventually connect through the escarpment. The city will revisit the idea of converting the entire length of the lane from Bronson to Elgin into a raised cycle track after 2018. Originally, 122 parking spaces were removed from Laurier Avenue to make way for the bicycle lane, but 124 spaces were created on streets that run parallel to Laurier.


Roast chicken for two makes an easy meal Lifestyle - Just because you cook for one or two, don’t think the joy of a roast chicken dinner is just too much effort. The roasting times have been slashed in half, given choices of white or dark, baked essential veggies beside the chicken and seasoned all with the herbs that are adorned in a classic stuffing. And, oh yes, you even wind up with crispy skin. Preparation time: 15 minutes. Cooking time: 45 minutes. Serves two. Ingredients

• 15 ml (1 tbsp) butter (at room temperature) • 1 ml (1/4 tsp) each dried sage leaves and salt (approximately) • 1 ml (1/4 tsp) ground savoury • 2 bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts or four thighs • 1 sweet potato, peeled • 10 ml (2 tsp) canola oil • 5 ml (1 tsp) dried rosemary or 15 ml (1 tbsp) finely chopped fresh rosemary • 5 ml (1 tsp) dried leaf thyme

leaves or 15 ml (1 tbsp) fresh thyme leaves • 1 onion, peeled • 1 sweet red pepper Preparation

In a small bowl, stir together the butter, sage, salt and savoury. Lift one edge of chicken skin and slide a finger between the skin and flesh

across most of the breast, leaving some skin edges attached. Rub most of the herbed butter onto the flesh. Then rub the remaining herbed butter over the skin. Sprinkle the skin with more sage and salt. Place the chicken at one end of large oiled rimmed baking sheet. Roast in a 200 C (400 F) oven for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, cut the potato into quarters and then into 2.5centimetre (one-inch) pieces. Place in a bowl and sprinkle with oil, rosemary, thyme and generous pinch of salt. Toss the potato to coat. Slice the onion into six wedges and add to the bowl. Gently turn the onion to coat, keeping it intact. Cut the pepper into quarters. Baste the chicken with juices from the pan and spread the vegetables on the empty side of the pan and roast for 15 minutes. Baste again with the pan juices and turn the vegetables. Roast for 10 to 15 minutes or until chicken and vegetables are tender. Foodland Ontario

Hospital researcher to volunteer at Ride the Rideau

By Tracey Tong


He may be one of Canada’s top neuromuscular researchers, as well as a Senior Scientist and Deputy Scientific Director at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, but Dr. Rashmi Kothary is still not too busy to help a good cause.


Rashmi and his wife, Arti, will be volunteering for the second year with Ride the Rideau, The Ottawa Hospital Foundation’s signature fundraising event. The fundraiser, which has raised $4.4 million for cancer research at The Ottawa Hospital over the last three years, will be held on Saturday, September 7.





“We like to do volunteer work in the community,” said Kothary. “We support a number of causes, but Ride the Rideau, which contributes funds to research at The Ottawa Hospital, is close to our hearts. We’ll be at the finish line, where we will show support to the riders, and to recognize them for their hard work.”

Kothary, who is also a Professor in the Departments of Medicine and Cellular and Molecular Medicine at the University of Ottawa, said cancer impacts many people, including his own family and friends.

Motorcycle ride marks autism program’s first fundraiser Jennifer McIntosh

News - Dave Kunhle, grandfather of two girls who have recently been diagnosed with autism, decided he wasn’t going to sit around while they waited to start speech and occupational therapy with QuickStart, he would get on his motorcycle and start raising money. Kunhle said he participates in the annual Ride for Dad, so when his two granddaughters, Josie, 3 and Sofia, 16 months, were diagnosed with autism, he wanted to do what he could to raise money for the program that will help them develop skills and coping mechanisms. Kim Kunhle, Dave’s daughterin-law, said Josie’s diagnosis came in January 2013. Kim and her husband Kevin, who live just outside Carleton Place, had noticed that she wasn’t meeting some of her devel-

Kim said when her husband first broached the subject of autism, she was very resistant. “I really didn’t know anything,” she said. “I told him that it was impossible she had it; only boys get it.” They had started looking for help in May 2012, but met with resistance when their family doctor wouldn’t recommend the test for autism. Dave said when the diagnosis came, he congratulated his son and daughter-in-law, not because of the disorder, but because with answers, they could develop a plan for the future. Long waiting lists for assessments through the Ottawa Children’s Treatment Centre and even longer ones for treatment leave a lot of parents frustrated said QuickStart founder Suzanne Jacobson. And thanks in part to QuickStart’s early intervention program

Kim’s youngest daughter Sofia was diagnosed in April, something Dave said was devastating. “I just saw the burden it was to raise one child with autism and to see that doubled…Kevin and Kim are my heroes,” he said, adding that he’s happy to see his granddaughters able to get the help they need. “There has been a remarkable improvement in Josie in the last six months,” Dave said. The first Motorcycle Ride for Autism is set to kick off Oct. 6 at 9 a.m. The 227-kilometre route starts at the Holiday Inn Express in Bells Corners and will take riders to Smiths Falls, Westport and Almonte before winding back to the Best Western on Robertson Road. Dave said he doesn’t have a financial goal in mind, but Ride for Dad had 57 riders in their first year. “If we get that many I will be happy,” he said. “We should be able to raise $10,000.” Jacobson said every dollar helps. The charity, based in Kanata, started with Jacobson’s two grandsons. The first, Alexander, now nine, didn’t receive treatment for autism until he was four-and-a-half. He waited 10 months for a diagnosis and then another two years for intensive therapy. When the family began to have questions about his younger brother Nathan, they paid privately for assessment and therapy. That got things going faster and now at four, he’s fully integrated into his school. QuickStart works with parents to fast track a diagnosis and then begins speech and occupational therapy to make gains while parents wait for the intensive therapy available through the public system. They use a modified applied behaviour analysis therapy called Denver therapy, that uses the principle of replacing undesired behaviour with desired, but at a level toddlers can comprehend. Even QuickStart has a wait list now though, Jacobson said, adding the ideal timeline for diagnosis is two months, and then another six weeks before therapy starts. As the number of children with autism continues to grow – the Centre for Disease Control in the United States says about one in 88 are somewhere on the autism spectrum – society will have to find ways to cope. “If we don’t find a way to deal with autism earlier in life we are going to have more cases like Amanda Telford who had to give up custody of her autistic son,” Jacobson said, referring to an Ottawa woman who left her severely autistic son at an Ontario government office. QuickStart funds itself through a series of fundraisers and donations – that’s why events like the motorcycle ride are so important.

Local garage-folk band ready for Bluesfest Jennifer McIntosh


Capital Grass and the No Men are drummer D’Arcy McGuire, left, bassist Mike Short, vocalist Matt Gower and guitarist Wayne Coulis. The band is set to play Bluesfest on July 13.

Entertainment - As they work on mixing their second album, Nepean-based Capital Grass and the No Men will take a break to play the Black Sheep Stage at Bluesfest on July 13. The self-described garage folk band was working on their debut album Don’t Wait for the Mountain when they first played the festival for the first time in 2010. The band started in 2006 with vocalist Matt Gower and guitarist Wayne Coulis, whose wives were both in the vet

school at Guelph University. “We just started jamming at parties and people liked what they heard, so it grew from there,” Coulis said. Mike Short, a bassist who lives in the Glebe, is the band’s newest acquisition. He started playing with them last July. Gower, the vocalist, hails from south Ottawa, and said he initially he wrote most of the songs. Now the group tends to work as a team, and work together on recording in Coulis’s Nepean home. The band – whose style has a touch of Canadiana folk – has played the Branch in

Kemptville, along with the Elmdale Tavern and the Black Sheep Inn in Wakefield. They are also regulars at the Rainbow Bistro. Gower, who also plays banjo, harmonica and mandolin, said they have been compared to Blue Rodeo. The style is a mix of the influences and each member’s tastes, he added. The band is excited to play Bluesfest for the second time, both to expand their audience and to see some of the other local acts on stage that day.

City scraps payoffs for reduced parking




Earn Extra Money! Keep Your Weekends Free!

In wake of city’s move, community groups say comprehensive parking strategy is needed Laura Mueller

News - It’s better to scrap a broken policy that lets developers pay their way out of parking requirements than try to fix it, the city’s planning committee decided. The policy was ditched with little fanfare during a June 25 meeting, but one citizen who spoke to the committee said community associations have a deep interest in the issue and would have rather seen a proposal to fix the policy. Daniel Mullaly from the Centretown Citizens Community Association said if the process is broken, the city should fix it. “This policy has been mismanaged for an extended period of time,” he said. “But CCCA thinks that abolishing it is not the solution … We are left without a policy or strategy to deal with a significant community issue.” The CCCA and other community associations in Hintonburg, Westboro, Old Ottawa South and the Glebe discussed the need to a comprehensive parking strategy for the city, Mullaly said. Planning committee chairman Peter Hume, councillor for Alta Vista Ward, insisted the change doesn’t mean people will have a “free pass” to avoid providing parking. The old policy required property owners and developers to pay a fee in exchange for a reduction in the parking they are required to provide in cases where there are restraints on

the owner’s ability to provide parking. It’s only supposed to be used in cases where it is “clearly demonstrated” that the requirements would result in an over-supply of parking. The city would ostensibly use the money to build public parking facilities, but the report notes the amount of money collected will likely never be enough to replace the total number of spaces in the communities where they are needed. In fact, a rule that the fee could be waived for community housing developments has been extended to all applicants who make a case to planning committee that providing parking will cause them “undo hardship.” The city collects an average of $125,000 a year from the bylaw. The new process will require relief from parking requirements to be sought through a rezoning or minor variance request. Planning manager John Smit said those options are more robust because they require more scrutiny and they can also be appealed – something the current policy lacks. Mullaly said community groups have been waiting for improvements to cash-in-lieu of parking for five years, but were none the wiser when the report was quietly added to the planning committee’s agenda with no prior community consultation. He said the city could have drawn the same conclusion four years ago when community

groups were first made aware of the study and commented on it. Four public meetings were held in January and December of 2009. The remaining $3.7 million in the cash-in-lieu of parking fund will likely be used to build an $8-million parking garage in the Glebe and development or redevelopment of smaller onand off-street parking facilities. There is still the possibility the city could create localized cash-in-lieu of parking bylaws if a local parking study recommends it. Since amalgamation, the city has exempted property owners from providing 1,300 parking spaces. Over that time, the city received 214 applications for cash-in-lieu of parking, of which 180 have been processed, of which only two have been refused. The city has used the money to provide parking at the adult high school on Preston Street, to create a taxi stand on Rideau Street, to replace some on- and off-street parking facilities and to fund studies on parking management for south Ottawa and Westboro and a tour bus strategy. It costs about $7,000 to build an on-street parking space, $25,000 per space to build a parking structure and about $40,000 per space to create parking in an underground garage. The old bylaw has been in effect since 1986 in Ottawa, 1984 in Vanier and 1995 in Rideau Township.

Heavy lifting A handful of locals came out to watch as more than 100 construction workers got set to begin the replacement of a 55-year-old, 600-tonne bridge where Highway 417 crosses Kirkwood and Carling avenues on July 6. The work is part of the Ministry of Transportation’s repair and widening of the highway and took less than 24 hours to complete from the time work began at 6 p.m. This is the third time the province has replaced a bridge on the 417 using this method.

City planners on quest to define ‘character’ Ottawa charting new territory in an effort to regulate the look of neighbourhoods Laura Mueller

News - City planners are having a tough time trying to describe in enforceable language a home that doesn’t fit the neighbourhood’s character. The city had one big win when it defended its infill design guidelines at the Ontario Municipal Board earlier this year, said city planner Elizabeth Desmarais, when the board ruled the city does have the right to regulate character. “Most importantly, the board indicated that when we speak about neighbourhood character, what we’re really talking about is the look as we go along the street,” Desmarais told the planning committee on June 25. But the OMB sent the city back to the drawing board on a number of issues related to how the city could enforce the rules it created to try and prevent homes from being built that are grossly incompatible with the neighbourhood. “They said staff didn’t go far enough to prove character and patterns in established neighbourhoods,” Desmarais said. Since then, Desmarais and her fellow planners have

been scrambling to document what factors contribute to creating “character” in different communities. So far, they have looked at 500 lots, but they need more time to finish up that research and write a bylaw that could legally enforce it. “We’re dealing with new things here. We actually need to define the word ‘character,’” Desmarais said. Staff is looking at factors such as how far back from the street the homes are built, The positioning of walkways, the elevation of the ground a home is built on top of and the location and distance between driveways, as well as the type of parking facility – pad, carport, garage, etc. The OMB was also displeased that the city’s rules were only proposed to apply to new homes and not additions on existing homes. The changes will be much broader than anticipated, said planning lawyer Murray Chown, who spoke to the planning committee on June 25. In an unusual move, Chown, who is usually an advocate for developers, joined forces with Hintonburg Community Association president Jeff Leiper

to ask the city to consider consulting those who may be affected by the changes. “It may be unusual to see us together but we do have some common concerns,” Chown said. “It sounds like the department is taking that opportunity of the direction from the board to go back and totally revamp the infill design guidelines bylaw … I don’t know whether that’s a good or bad thing.” Chown said developers and community advocates had thought the city would entertain a “dialogue” with them while they work out the fix. “It turns out that the fix is much bigger than any of us realized,” Chown said. “For the planners not to consult with the industry is mindboggling.” The planning committee approved the direction staff are taking with updating the infill design guidelines to fulfill the OMB’s orders, but the work is sure to go beyond the five-month deadline the OMB set for Aug. 8. The city’s planners and lawyers hope the OMB will provide more time if Ottawa can show it’s working hard to tackle the issues. After city council approves the rules, the city will head back to the OMB to argue whether the city has the jurisdiction to enforce the rewritten rules and whether the guidelines represent good land-use planning.

Summer ice Orléans native Cody Ceci, centre, challenges the puck-carrier during a drill at the Ottawa Senators prospects development camp, which opened on July 3 in Kanata. The week-long camp included off-ice and on-ice training, nutrition seminars and a 3-on-3 tournament. Ceci was a first-round pick of the Sens in 2012 and seems a step closer to making the NHL team’s roster this year. Being assigned jersey no. 5 instead of no. 38 has to be considered a good sign for the future.
