Committee chooses raceway as best bet for casino. – Page 5

Off and running Runners of all ages braved the heat on Sunday morning while taking part in the annual Hintonburg 5K Run. The popular event launched and terminated at Parkdale Park, and included a shorter race for kids and youth. The run began in 2007 – the brainchild of the Hintonburg Community Association – and now attracts a growing amount of participants. Organizers estimated the run would attract 300 participants this year.

News - A chorus of unhappy residents relayed their continued opposition to the “Richmond underground,” despite the city’s offer to study a fully underground western LRT route. The transportation committee approved the route, which would start at Tunney’s Station and runs along the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway in a trench for approximately 500 metres and traverses Rochester Field before dipping underground under Richmond Road for 700 m. This leg of the light-rail system will end at Baseline Station, but the portion that will see the most changes – and has stirred the most controversy – runs through McKellar Park. The committee signed off to

proceed with the route despite the National Capital Commission twice voting to reject the Richmond Underground option. The route would require the NCC to grant the city access to about a kilometre of its land along the parkway and the federal body was not interested in the city’s plan to run trains – even in a trench – along the road. But a few councillors, including Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury, said the city isn’t willing to “bow to the NCC” when it comes to the rail route. And the NCC’s approval isn’t even needed yet, said Bay Coun. Mark Taylor. He pointed out the NCC didn’t sign off on the downtown portion of light rail until just before the details were finalized and the contract tendered. See STATION, page 20

veloping nations few have the luxury to feel this way. Six players from the West Ottawa U14 Girls Warriors will soon return from Nicaragua, where they assisted members of charitable organization SchoolBOX construct a rural school building in the Central American nation.

The journey follows a 2012 fundraising initiative in which the girls raised more than $1,700 (and significant awareness for the issue) through a five-kilometre run. An additional $2,000 was handed to SchoolBOX through the True Sport Give Back Competition. Warriors teammates Kathleen Carson, Priya Nagpal, Tiffany Ingram, Gabriele Donnelly, Jessica Aiello and Talia Laroche joined coach Dina BellLaroche for the trip, something

the West Ottawa Soccer Club is very proud of. “It’s been an inspiring process from beginning to end,” said Bjorn Osieck, chief executive of the club. “This is a wonderful, feel-good story, and I’m proud of the girls and their coach.” The trip was arranged following the granting of a youth volunteer scholarship by CTV’s Amazing People Gala, in support of SchoolBOX. The six players and their coach

are lending assistance to the construction of a four-room school. SchoolBOX executive director Sarah Kerr said that in Nicaragua, only 51 per cent of the population reaches Grade 5. The organization has a vision of a country where everyone has the opportunity to complete primary school and where students and educators feel empowered. See PLAYERS, page 12

News - Sandra Oh, known for playing Dr. Christina Yang on the television show Grey’s Anatomy, returned home on July 8 to accept the key to the city. Oh grew up in Nepean, and got an early start acting at Knoxdale Public School and Sir Robert Borden High School. Oh was the opposite of the stern character television fans are used to seeing, as she laughed, smiled and several times, wiped tears from her eyes as she accepted the key at city hall. Her family, including her parents, who still live in Nepean, and siblings all sat with the star at the city hall presentation. Besides Grey’s Anatomy, Oh has been in many independent films, and won two Genie Awards and a Golden Globe. Before she was presented with the key to the city, the audience watched a highlight reel of her work from when she received her star on Canada’s Walk of Fame in 2011. She dedicated a large part of her speech to her two young nieces, who grinned ear to ear when their aunt spoke to them about living with good values. “You can own the key to the city, to whatever city you live in, if you are responsible for a life well lived,” Oh said. “And I wish that for the both of you.” Oh’s first performance was in a play called the Canada Goose

at Knoxdale Public School. “And then going along Greenbank to SRB, a huge part of my entire time in high school was the Canada Improv Games,” she said. “I did so much of my training and acting in those formative years from Grade 9 to 13. I can’t tell you how much that training affected my career, so deeply.” She also danced at Nepean’s Les Petits Ballets throughout her youth. Many of her teachers and friends returned to city hall to see her accept the key. She stopped to point out several teachers, friends, and even her first boyfriend sitting in the crowd. At one point, the current Sir Robert Borden principal came out to present Oh with a painted ceiling tile. As class president, Oh had promised advocating for painted ceiling tiles as a part of her campaign speech, something that didn’t happen during her year term as head girl. Oh said her parents, Joon-Soo and Young-Nam Oh, who immigrated to Ottawa from Korea, are well-respected in Ottawa’s Korean community. While they’ve come to many award shows with her, she said getting the key was special because it was one of the first times her entire family had been able to share an award with her. “I have shamelessly brought my parents to almost every award show,” she said. “But this is very different. My entire family is here, and the entire community I grew up with is here. These are people who have watched me grow up.”

Signalized Kirkwood intersection hailed by residents Steph Willems

steph.willems@metroland.com

Community - Motorists driving along Kirkwood Avenue will be less likely to attain higher speeds thanks to a new signalized intersection at Clare Street and local residents couldn’t be happier. The signals and crosswalks were activated on the morning of July 11, allowing pedestrians and cyclists an easier crossing of an increasingly busy roadway. Wider sidewalks at the intersection’s corners assist in pedestrian flow. For years, residents has advocated for a crosswalk at Kirkwood and Clare for reasons of both safety and convenience. The number 16 OC Transpo route turns west onto Clare from Kirkwood and exits at that point as well, but the closest stop for those living east of Kirkwood is on the west side of the street. This meant many long waits, traffic dodges, and missed buses. “At least three years ago, I brought a chair and sat at the corner during peak traffic periods,” explained Virginia Ellis, a resident who lives near the intersection.

“I couldn’t count how many pedestrians I saw trying to dodge traffic.” Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs said the city’s decision to install signals at the intersection was mainly driven by the needs of OC Transpo. In this case, the number 16 bus found it difficult to make left-hand turns onto Kirkwood Avenue due to uninterrupted traffic flow. “It was increasingly difficult for buses to be on schedule,” said Hobbs. “It came to the time where this was completely warranted. It was always on the radar before… We feel, too, that this will slow down traffic for the whole street. Before, people would breeze right through.” Because of the traffic, motorists living on the east side of Kirkwood regularly headed east to find their way out of the neighbourhood, often using Byron Avenue or Island Park Drive, the latter of which is also notorious for traffic. Infrastructure improvements for cyclists are also expected south of the site, at the lopsided intersection of Kirkwood, Sebring Avenue and Dovercourt Avenue. Those improvements, an-

News - Whether we like it or not, attending job interviews means looking the part. For the past four years, clothing retailer Moores and its partners have held a used suit drive in order to give job seekers the look to match their ambition and talent. This year, Moores has found an additional partner in the National Capital Region YMCA/ YWCA. Across the country during the month of July, Moores locations are accepting gently

used men’s and women’s suits, pants, shirts, ties, belts and shoes, while the YMCA/YWCA – through its housing programs – will distribute items to those whom they know need it most. “We are thrilled to partner with Moores on this critical effort to provide job seekers with professional interview and employment clothing,” said Cathy Turnbull, local president of housing, employment and newcomer services for the YMCA/ YWCA. “Locally, there are very limited resources to help men get suited for their job search.”

That sentiment is echoed by Mike McFarland, director of human resources/benefits for Moores. “There are nearly 754,900 working-age males unemployed in this country, many of whom are trying to make a positive change for themselves, their families, and their communities,” said McFarland, adding their aim is to ultimately see those individuals meet their goals. Moores is hoping to reach this year’s goal of 50,000 donated articles of clothing by the end of the month.

The partnership is a natural fit for the YMCA/YWCA, which actively assists residents who are unemployed to find new work. Currently, the organization has two employment access centres operating in Ottawa, both of which offer employment counselling, job search support, and referrals to like-minded community and government programs. Turnbull said that besides allowing a “sharp” appearance, proper attire gives the wearer heightened self-confidence, which can only be a good thing when it comes time to meet with potential employers.

Committee reluctantly supports casino at raceway Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Councillors once again said they were holding their noses as they voted on July 9 to make the RideauCarleton Raceway the city’s only option for a new casino site. But the final vote at city council on July 17 might see a different result, depending on additional legal information the city solicitor will bring to the meeting after representatives from the Ottawa Senators and Canadian Tire Centre blasted the city for what they say is a faulty and possibly illegal process of choosing where to put a new gambling facility. While council voted in principle last fall to support a new casino, Watson said changes in leadership at Queen’s Park and the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation opened an opportunity for the city to specify where it wants a casino, and he now thinks the facility should be at the Rideau-Carleton Raceway. Without it, the raceway and the approximately 1,000 jobs provided by the south Ottawa business would be no more, Watson said. “This is the only way to protect slots at the raceway,” he said. But critics of the move blasted the city for going down a road of solesourcing the bid for a new casino. While Watson contends that any hopeful casino operator could submit a bid and then operate a casino at the raceway, critics said in a practical sense, the location and business operations must be linked. Senators owner Eugene Melnyk spoke to the committee at length, pleading for an equal chance to submit his bid for a casino at the Canadian Tire Centre in Kanata. “I’m not asking for a handout. I’m asking for a shot – a shot to make money so I can do this,” he said, referring to running his hockey team despite financial losses. The Senators operate at a great financial loss and a casino could help prop up the business, Melnyk said. But he brushed off the suggestion that he was threatening to take the team elsewhere if he didn’t get the chance to bid to build a casino. “I’ve been doing this for 10 years. Why stop now?” Melnyk said. “I still love this city.” City solicitor Rick O’Connor

agreed to get additional legal advice from third-party lawyers after the mayor and council received a tongue lashing from Capital Sports and Entertainment lawyer Paul Webber. He called Watson’s motion “unlawful” and “morally and ethically” unsound. “You are bonusing a business. I don’t know how I can be more clear than that,” Webber said. “Not only does it not pass the smell test, it’s not legal.” O’Connor said that’s not true – legal advice from an arms-length firm that defended the Lansdowne redevelopment contract indicated the city is allowed to specify a location. But O’Connor said he would like to look at the matter in more depth, given the “aggressive” nature of comments from delegates like Webber. Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans said the goal of saving the raceway and the jobs it provides is laudable, but the city should have more information before it makes moves to save one business at the expense of another, such as a hockey team like the Senators. Stittsville Coun. Shad Qadri, whose ward contains the Canadian Tire Centre, took a similar stance. He has supported the possibility of a new casino at the arena all along, he said, but he would like to see it win in an open and competitive bidding process. Alex Lawryk, spokesman for Rideau Carleton Entertainment, said the finance and economic development committee made the right decision on solid legal footing, but he supported councillors wanting to get more legal information at the city council meeting on July 17. “They also said last November when they voted to move forward with the OLG program that they were going to hold their noses and vote then. So they’re still holding their noses and voting.” While the raceway would like its own casino bid to win, Lawryk said the group would still be satisfied if it became the landlord to another casino operator, since that would still support the raceway’s operations and allow it to continue. The only dissenting vote at the finance and economic development committee meeting was from Deans, who has been vocally opposed to a new casino. At least one councillor was surprised to hear the city manager say

Laura Mueller/Metroland

Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk, right, speaks to reporters during a July 9 meeting of the city’s finance and economic development committee. Melnyk wanted councillors to vote against Mayor Jim Watson’s motion that would force a new casino to be built at the Rideau Carleton Raceway, adding the city should include all location possibilities, including Canadian Tire Centre. that the Rideau Carleton Raceway would remain open and operated by the OLG or a subcontractor if the city rejected OLG’s chosen option for a casino operator and location. College Coun. Rick Chiarelli said that when he asked the same question last fall, he and council were told that rejecting OLG’s casino choice would mean the slots at the raceway – and effectively, the raceway facility itself – would shut down. The news even came as a surprise to the representatives of the raceway. “That’s a new but a positive wrinkle,” Lawryk said. City manager Kent Kirkpatrick said that could end up being the result if the OLG chose not to renew its slots contract with the raceway. Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt, who opposes a casino, said it’s impossible to say whether the original vote last November would have had a different result if councillors knew the OLG would be open to continuing to operate the slots. “It appears the direction of the OLG has changed since Wynne came in,” Moffat said. But that option didn’t exist at the time, he added. The previous OLG power brokers were adamant that gambling would be in the urban area, or Ottawa wouldn’t get a gambling facility at all, Moffatt said. The OLG might continue operating slots at the raceway if city council turned down a new casino, he said.

Keeping your cool, with a side of education Canada Agriculture and Food Museum to host July 21 ice cream workshop, exhibit Steph Willems

can learn the procedure and science behind the art of ice cream-making, while examining the delicate food chain that results in the ingredients required to make the cold treat. And yes, you can sample the final results of the workshops. “National Ice Cream Day is held on the third Sunday in July,” said Marie-Sophie Desaulniers, director of visitor experience at the museum. “Given the time of year, it often turns out to be a good day

steph.willems@metroland.com

News - With the capital roasting under a heat wave, residents looking for ways to beat the soaring temperatures can add a new strategy to their list. The Canada Agriculture and Food Museum is marking National Ice Cream Day -- which does exist – on July 21 with a hands-on ice cream exhibit and workshop inside their new learning centre. Participants

for it.” With the advent of refrigeration, consumers most commonly associate ice cream with the final product – a frozen brick or tub, requiring a trip to the freezer aisle at their local grocery store. The actual process of making it from scratch – which consumers don’t see, but once had to perform themselves – is much more complicated, said Desaulniers. “At the museum, you can watch demonstrations on

cream separation, cow milking, but you can also join staff in making gelato, frozen yogurt, ice cream and smoothies,” she said. “There’s a science behind it.” Even the bee pollination required to create the fruits need-

ed for ice cream flavourings are a part of the process being explored at the museum. The museum’s broadened focus in examining the processes and weaknesses of the human food chain is reflected in its renaming, which occurred earlier this year, and in

the educational space offered by its new learning centre. Besides the ice cream focus on July 21, there will also be musical entertainment and dancing, along with the regular exhibits and activities offered by the surrounding Central Experimental Farm. More information on this and other events can be found by visiting agriculture.technomuses.ca.

Ottawa man chases Canadian history to high Arctic Emma Jackson

emma.jackson@metroland.com

News - One hundred years ago, a large team of scientists and adventurers were preparing for a journey of a lifetime to Canada’s high Arctic to document the landscape, wildlife and culture of the Far North. The Canadian Arctic Expedition, launched in 1913, would come to span five long years of setbacks, human loss and scientific breakthrough and become one of the greatest, largely untold adventures in Canadian history. It’s also a history Metcalfe resident David Gray hopes to bring back to life. The independent researcher, writer and filmmaker has spent much of his professional life documenting Canada’s northern regions. Despite his home base in rural Ottawa, hardly a year has gone by without a trip to the Arctic since he first spent 11 months on Bathurst Island in 1968. On July 17, Gray once again took to the north in an attempt to finally locate, survey and document the camps and locations of the original expedition a century ago. “It’s an exciting opportunity to bring this site back to life, in a way,” Gray said, referring to the main site near Sachs Harbour, N.W.T., 500 kilometres northeast of Inuvik. “Even for the local people, they know it’s historic, they know it’s significant, but they can’t go back and say ‘This is where my grandfather put

Emma Jackson/Metroland

Dr. David Gray left on July 17 for Canada’s high Arctic, where he will retrace the steps of the notorious Canadian Arctic Expedition that launched from Victoria 100 years ago. hut foundations and remnants of the schooner Mary Sachs. From there the team will board a motorized sailboat Bernard Explorer captained by Bob Bernard, great-greatnephew of expedition member Peter Bernard. They will head due north to explore the western shore of Banks Island looking for any sign of

his tent’ because no one has mapped it out.” The six-person team will fly into Sachs Harbour on the southwest shore of Banks Island on July 17. From there they can easily access the expedition’s main headquarters west of the town, where they will spend a week documenting the site’s

Bernard, who was lost in the winter of 1916. The last sign of his trail was found at the northwest tip of the island and Gray said it’s unlikely he ever turned south toward the safety of fellow expedition member Natkusiak’s camp in the nearby Gore Islands. At the time, Bernard was

carrying several large expedition mail bags. Finding those bags – and anything still intact inside them - would be a major windfall. “The most likely scenario is he went through the ice and there won’t be anything to find,” Gray said. “But given the ocean currents ... stuff could be washed up on the shores at any time. It’s a shot in the dark. It’s a needle in a haystack, but if you don’t look you don’t find.” From there the ship will make its way south along the shoreline to document another 10 sites, including Natkusiak’s camp. The crew should return home by the end of August. The expedition will produce two documentary films, a historical record of Sachs Harbour to be used as a tourism guide, and could someday lead to a book. Of course like many scientific endeavours, Gray said funding continues to be a barrier. Despite some indication that federal money would be set aside to commemorate the expedition’s 100th anniversary, Gray gave up trying to squeeze blood from a stone several months ago and turned instead to a crowdfunding campaign. The team needs about $20,000 to cover the trip’s bare bone expenses, which don’t include individual travel

costs incurred by the team members as well as their free labour. “It’s a people expedition,” Gray said. He said many people connected to the expedition, the team members or who have an interest in the north have already come forward with generous donations. Corporate sponsorships and donations from people not otherwise connected to the project are also starting to come forward. “Everybody’s pulling together,” he said. And putting off the expedition until more funds can be raised is hardly an option. As global warming takes its toll on the region, time is of the essence. “Now that there isn’t ice protection in the summer months, the erosion rate is increasing dramatically,” Gray said, noting that as much as one metre of shoreline is eaten away every two years. That erosion is taking history with it. “Every storm, every high tide, artifacts are lost.” Donors can still support the expedition with cheques to the Canadian Museum of Nature, or through the expedition’s website www.canadianarcticexpedition.com. The crew will also maintain a blog and live map on their website throughout their journey, for Canadians who want to follow along at home.

Let’s avoid city planning extremes

T

here is little room for black and white when it comes to planning Ottawa’s future. A good case-in-point is the debate that surrounded the decision to turn Main Street, running through Old Ottawa East, into what is described as a “complete street.” This term describes a streetscape that makes room for all modes of transportation, from walking to cycling to cars to buses or other modes of mass transit. It means wide sidewalks, designated cycling lanes and typically fewer lanes for automobile traffic. It is the type of street that is meant to promote and support sustainable growth of cities, making the streetscape a friendlier place for those living and working in the area. It is also something that can prove divisive, a situation that played out at a recent transportation committee meeting. Among the opponents of the plan, two councillors on the committee representing suburban wards expressed concern with the effect such a street would have, not on those living in the area, but those passing through or living in areas that might become home to a complete street in the future. Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans said reducing the number of lanes on Main from four to two would have a negative effect on commuters from her

ward. Despite the good intentions of the completestreet plan, that’s a concern worth considering. In a similar vein, Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley said Ottawa needs to “ensure we’re not designing all our streets in a way that chokes off traffic and the ability to transport people and goods.” Also a good point, but neither concern is reason enough not to make Main Street a more pleasant roadway for walkers and cyclists. They shouldn’t be ignored either. As the city’s intensification policies play out and more people live in the urban core, it will no longer be feasible for more people to drive around their neighbourhood. This scenario won’t be playing out the same way in the suburbs, which will remain reliant on automobiles for decades to come. The problem is, those people use the city’s urban core – for both work and pleasure – too. When they do, they’ll be riding in the comfort of their own automobiles. If we want our city’s roads to be as pleasant and as efficient as possible, automobiles must remain a big consideration for both city staff and councillors. Like with many political decisions, the grey area between the black and white is where many of the best answers lie. Making sure Ottawa is a great place for all of us to live, work and play must be the paramount concern in all decisions made at city hall.

t will be a few months before we have an

of 2013. Will Ottawa hockey fans boo Daniel Alfredsson? This is a bit of a trick question, because a percentage of people at the Sens arena have always booed Alfredsson. Those would be the Toronto Maple Leaf fans who have always hated Alfredsson for obscure historical reasons and have stumbled into the wrong arena. But for most fans, Ottawa fans, the moment of truth will come the first time Alfredsson’s new team, the Detroit Red Wings, visits. Will he be booed, like Alexei Yashin and Dany Heatley, or cheered, like Mike Fisher, when he returned to Scotiabank Place as a member of the Nashville Predators? Some people will never forgive Alfie for leaving Ottawa. Others will thank him for his many years of inspiring play for the Senators and wish him well. And some people will boo anyone not wearing a Senators uniform. There are many different kinds of sports fans, as you found out reading the Internet comments on the day Alfredsson announced he was leaving town. While much of the city was in numb shock, some fans had moved on by mid-afternoon. Online, they had already forgotten Alfie, as

People like this root passionately for the home team. They love Ottawa’s players because they play for Ottawa. The more prominent of those players, particularly those who become more involved in the community, are especially beloved.

Ottawa West News EMC - Thursday, July 18, 2013

Because these fans are so loyal to the players, they expect the players to be loyal to them. But hockey, like all sports, like all society, doesn’t seem to work that way anymore. Players are not loyal to teams, teams are not loyal to players -- at least, not forever. Stars like Alfredsson leave because they see a better chance of winning somewhere else, or because they are offered more money. Teams trade popular veteran players, like Mike Fisher, because they think they can get something in return, or simply to dump some salary. It is a business, as we are constantly reminded. This is a tough thing to explain to a young fan and you put off explaining it for as long as you can. People thought that Alfredsson was different, but it turned out he wasn’t. People thought the Senators would do anything to keep Alfredsson in Ottawa, and it turned out that they wouldn’t. Some of us would like it to be otherwise, but it’s a business. We should know that, from looking at the prices we pay to get in and from looking at the reports of the salaries players are making and the vast amounts of cash laid out for television rights. But there is a part of every sports fan that is a starry-eyed little kid, just

wanting to cheer for the home team, worship the stars and not know anything about the financial details. And it’s probably that little kid who keeps coming back, despite strikes, lockouts, drug scandals and all the other unpleasantness that has been plaguing professional sport in recent years. We want to believe the best of our athletes and the teams they play for. Our faith isn’t always rewarded, but it is often enough to keep us in the game. Over the years, Alfie was one of those who helped us keep the faith, which is why it is so difficult to see him go.

Re-discovering freedom in the woods

I

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse I asked my younger son what other kinds of things he likes to do in the woods. “Last weekend, we made a fort,” he said. “And we made up a game: how many rocks you can throw into the hole in the bottom of the tree.”

For two years, my kids have been carrying the backpack kit provided by the local Search and Rescue team – including a whistle, a plastic bag and a snack. (We replace the snack on occasion). Age seven and eight, they’ve already been

My boys are the perfect age to explore nature on their own terms. We set up camp and, with some established rules (okay, it’s still freedom with limits), they take off for hours at a time into the surrounding woods. They create things. They have the autonomy to experiment without judgment or instruction and seemingly without limits. Much of this comes down to the fact that they’ve been camping since their first years of life. We’ve also taken them to interpretive nature programs and safety programs, like Hug-a-Treeand-Survive.

sleeping in their own tent for three years, which is shocking to most of their friends and mine. Our first weekends of the summer also saw the baby get down and dirty. Barefoot on grass, she crawled about and walked, pushing her little wagon further than ever before. One day, we found her with a squirmy green caterpillar

wriggling between her wee thumb and forefinger. (She may have been about to eat it, but for that moment, she was just examining it and giggling).When we’re camping, the baby eats well, sleeps well and hardly cries. She gets dirt under her fingernails and campfire smoke in her eyes, and she loves it. She’s a natural. Sometimes we talk dreamily about buying a rural property so we can build a cabin or a chalet. But the thing is we love camping. Every trip offers an opportunity for the kids to meet new friends, explore new areas of the woods and grow. And they do grow, physically and also intellectually and emotionally. There are no temper tantrums in the woods. There is empathy and patience. I can’t explain how their personalities seem to change. Not bound by four walls, no ceiling to block the elements, their internal rhythms kick in. They sleep when it gets dark, wake with the sunrise and eat constantly, but heartily. It really is a beautiful thing. They also like that mom is never distracted by the interrupting beep of her smartphone. When’s the last time your kids experienced that kind of freedom? When’s the last time you did?

Further to my spring update, Forestry Services is

working with invasive species experts from the University of Toronto and the Canadian Forest Service to advance research on biological controls for the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) through the use of native and non-native species that act as predators. This issue was a topic of several questions at the Emerald Ash Borer Information Session held in June and I want to ensure that you have the most current information on the work being done by our staff on this important issue. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has approved two non-native species of wasp for release in Canada as a control for EAB. These are Tetrastichus planipennisi and Spathius agrili. A third species of wasp that is native to Canada, Phasgonophora sulcata, is also being researched as a possible EAB predator. The wasps are non-stinging and are harmless to humans. The City of Ottawa is currently working with researchers to explore the use of Tetrastichus planipennisi and Phasgonophora sulcata on local Ash trees. Spathius agrili is not considered to be a good candidate for release in Ottawa due to our colder climate. Forestry services staff are already working with researchers by contributing staff time, equipment and inspecting sites to evaluate the effectiveness of these biocontrols in Ottawa and how best to incorporate them into the City’s EAB Strategy. The research trials are initially being done on a small scale and will include monitoring how the non-native insects interact with native species. The City is exploring multiple options to manage the spread of EAB. Research in jurisdictions with longer experience with this pest suggest that no one tactic is 100% effective. Therefore, a combination of different tactics, including pesticide use and biocontrols, is required for the long-term management of EAB.

have to apologize to my friends and colleagues who’ve been Facebooking and sending me regular emails. They know I’ve recently acquired a smartphone, so I should have no excuse for being out of touch. But here’s the thing: three weeks into summer and we’ve spent every weekend in Gatineau Park. Gatineau Park doesn’t have good wireless coverage for my network. So for three days a week, I’ve essentially been switched off. Although I’ve been reprimanded by friends for forgetting ladies drinks night and hounded by editors desperate to assign me summer projects, I’ve been enjoying the weekends of freedom. It turns out my kids feel the same way. “Mom, I love camping,” said my seven-year-old the other day. “I feel so free when we’re camping.” My boys are the perfect age to explore nature on their own terms. We set up camp and, with some established rules (okay, it’s still freedom with limits), they take off for hours at a time into the surrounding woods. It gives them the impression, at least, that they are loosed from the watchful eyes of parents and rules. They smash rocks and play war. They catch bugs and hide behind trees.

Rehabilitation of historic Lowertown park moves ahead New climbing structure, more benches to be added to Bingham Park Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - The revitalization of one of the city’s oldest parks is set to get underway in Lowertown. Since 2010, residents living near Bingham Park have been working with their

councillor and city staff, as well as raising money to help fix up the aging park. In 2011, Lowertown Community Association’s lead for the project, Michael Kirkpatrick, was contacted by a local charity called the Chance Foundation that wanted to help the community refurbish

the park. For Kirkpatrick, it was exactly what the group needed to make the dream a reality. “I was about to give up and then Chance (Foundation) came along,” he said. “They saved this project. They have helped in so many ways.” On July 9, the commu-

nity met to receive an update about the plans for the park at Routhier Community Centre. “Tonight we are looking for feedback about what people want to see in the park,” Kirkpatrick said. Chance Foundation’s president Shannon Tessier, chief operating officer Christian Tessier and director of charitable activities Laura Gowland attended the meeting to show the plans on the park rehabilitation project to residents. “We want this project into the action phase,” Shannon Tessier said. “We strongly agree that recreation helps build community, and that is why we are here. That is why we love this project so much.” Chance Foundation came on board in early 2011, granting the community $20,000 for the project. Tessier started the foundation in 2007 with a project that saw medical supplies donated to a hospital in Ecuador. Later, Chance Foundation partnered with the Max Keeping Foundation in 2011 to help support 30 low-income children, allowing them to participate in extra-curricular activities. It also opened a pre-school in Nicaragua. Now the foundation has set its sights to make a difference in Ottawa and after many interviews on many interesting projects, Chance Foundation decided to help upgrade the only large community park on the west side of Lowertown. Kirkpatrick credits Chance Foundation for helping wade through the application pro-

cess for a major capital grant from the city as well as reach out to playground equipment companies to see what was possible for the area. “They have been incredible. They have done everything and more,” Kirkpatrick said. With Chance Foundation’s contribution of $20,577, a donation from Rideau Street’s Desjardins of $13,633 and donations collected through the community association of $2,790 the group applied for the city’s major capital grant - which matches every dollar raised by the community. In total, the community has $74,000 to upgrade the park. In addition, Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury has donated $1,000 recently, which is not a part of the major funding grant because it was given after the application. For the project, Tessier explained the budget needs to compensate for any unexpected occurrences, so $7,500 will be held back to pay for unforeseen costs. A survey conducted by Chance Foundation from June 2012-13 helped identify what the community would like to see at the park. The top three things people identified were a play structure for older children and more benches and landscaping. The wadding pool, the hockey rink and the tennis courts were identified as some of the most used facilities in the park and residents asked for those to remain. A request to turn the current baseball diamond into a soccer field was also noted, but the costs, Tessier said, were too high. Gowland said the main items the foundation believes “That was way to easy!”

could improve the park is to add more benches, a new play structure and games tables and picnic tables. The benches will seat three, Gowland explained, in an effort to prevent loitering. “One of the comments that struck me from the survey was that many expressed interest in accommodating patients from Bruyère, one even mentioning that there is a man who brings his wife everyday for lunch in the park and they watch the kids play,” Gowland said. “To me this is very important. This shows the park offers a sense of community.” The dozen residents who attended the meeting agreed and although the group discussed fine-tuning the details of how many benches and where the benches should go -- everyone agreed the foundation’s proposal was great. The play structure will be a climbing structure made of ropes and steal. It will be provided and installed by Dynamo Playgrounds. Near the end of the meeting, the foundation asked to the group how the contingency fund could be used if that money goes unspent. Options included adding more benches, a permanent ping pong table, a blackboard for single tennis play in the tennis court or potentially placing a mural on the field house. A final decision was not made at the meeting, however -- this will be decided in the next two weeks. The goal is for the project to start and be complete this fall. More information about the project or the foundation is available at chancefoundation.ca. “I just clicked and saved 90%”

after Friedman graduated. Both studied at Carleton University and the University of Ottawa, but at different times. Furthermore, they lived on the same street in the Glebe, but again, Scruton arrived after Friedman had left. There were many more near-misses over the years, but in 2008, fate played a role in bringing them together over a virtual Scrabble game. They continued to play Scrabble for several more months before they finally met at a mutual friend’s 50th birthday party. Friedman’s father, Shulom, said the family was very enthusiastic about the wedding, saying the couple shared many common interests, which he believed is the cornerstone of their marriage. He called the setting of the marriage ceremony a unique one. “They’re a very special couple,” he said. “We’re all very happy for them.”

Cal

News – A Kanata couple tied the knot at a quilt and fabric store in Katimavik on July 13. The wedding, held at the Running Stitch, was anything but ordinary for bride Susan Scruton and groom Robert Friedman. While they dated for five years, Scruton impulsively bought a coupon for The Running Stitch, and the couple talked each other into signing up for a beginner’s quilting course – neither of them knowing how to sew or quilt. “We love coming here and surrounding ourselves with creativity,” said Friedman. “This shop us to create, and we get to do it together. That is the best part.” Their idea of a perfect weekend is heading to the craft store to spend some time working together in the sewing room. The Running Stitch’s owner Michele Santere remembers the day Scruton walked into the quilt store showcasing her engagement ring. It was Santere’s idea to host a wedding ceremony at the quilt store. “When she came in with the ring, I asked her where they were planning on getting married and she said she didn’t know, so I said, ‘Why not here?’” said Santere. Not much in the store had to change as it provided a perfect venue for the couple to be married in, she added. All that was added were a few decorations and a table adorned with crafty creations made by the couple. “I’m very happy for them,” said

Santere. For Santere, the best part of working at a store like The Running Stitch is forming relationships with the customers, and witnessing the different projects they make. “We love our customers, and we are like family here,” she said. “People are always making quilts for loved ones and special occasions, so we get to be a part of some great moments in our customer’s lives.” Santere has hosted many community events over the past five years, but never a wedding. The couple is now working on a wedding quilt and will set off on a honeymoon to Newfoundland at the end of the month. The duo met and fell in love online while playing a game of Scrabble on Facebook. They discovered they had nearly met one another several times throughout the course of their lives. They attended the same high school in Montreal, with Scruton starting just

“It has been so inspirational for our entire team at SchoolBOX to see the dedication and commitment of the West Ottawa soccer team to this mission of ‘Making Education Possible,’” said Kerr. “Under the direction of their amazing coach, Dina Bell-Laroche, these young athletes have raised thousands of dollars towards educational materials for hundreds of kids and sponsored five regional soccer tournaments for the children of Nicaragua.” Kerr said that each day at the build site, the Warrior teammates have been organizing soccer games with the

boys and girls of the village, as well as developing lasting friendships. The West Ottawa Soccer Club has a long history of philanthropy, raising funds and making donations to many deserving charities and organizations over the years. Osieck said the club has no formal connections with any given charity and the recipients of their fundraising dollars are chosen on an individual basis. “We engage the Warrior community to live by True Sport principles, by giving back to the community in both large and small ways,” said Osieck. “I love the though that we are building the community leaders of both today and tomorrow.”

Korean beef salad healthy, tasty

Annual tennis tournament to support Jump Start Jennifer McIntosh

jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

Ingredients

• 50 ml (1/4 cup) tamari or soy sauce • 25 ml (2 tbsp) liquid honey • 15 ml (1 tbsp) sesame oil • 4 cloves garlic, crushed • 5 ml (1 tsp) hot chili sauce (such as sriracha) • 2 ml (1/2 tsp) finely grated ginger root • 250 g (8 oz) thinly sliced deli-cooked beef • 125 g (4 oz) thin vermicelli rice noodles • 15 ml (1 tbsp) vegetable oil • 750 ml (3 cups) thinly sliced mushrooms • 375 ml (1 1/2 cups) thinly sliced sweet red pepper

• 4 green onions, sliced • 4 large leaves of lettuce • 15 ml (1 tbsp) toasted sesame seeds • 50 ml (1/4 cup) fresh coriander leaves (optional) Preparation

In a bowl, mix together the tamari sauce, honey, sesame oil, garlic, hot chili sauce and ginger root. Cut the beef slices into one-centimetre

(1/2-inch) wide strips and stir them into the marinade. Let the marinating beef stand at room temperature for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, cook the vermicelli according to the package directions and drain well. Measure out 1 litre (4 cups) of vermicelli and set aside. In a large non-stick skillet, heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Cook the mushrooms, red pepper and half of the green onions in the skillet, stirring, for three to five minutes or until mushrooms are golden. Drain the marinade from the beef and add it to the skillet, cooking for one-to-two minutes or just until no liquid remains. To serve, place a lettuce leaf on each plate and top each with 250 ml (1 cup) vermicelli, then one-quarter of the meat mixture. Garnish with the remaining green onions, sesame seeds and coriander, if it is being used. Foodland Ontario

Transient tramps always welcome at dinner table

F

ather was sure there was a hidden sign nailed to a tree, only visible to the countless tramps who rode the rails that said, “Jump here: good food up the hill.” Deep in the heart of the Depression years, almost as if they were put there to remind us there was someone in worse shape than we were, tramps walked the back roads, rode the freight trains and survived by begging for their next meal. Countless numbers found their way to our kitchen door, always around dinner time, looking for something to eat. They frightened me, although Father said they were harmless, and I was glad that if they did surface at night, we never saw them. My brothers were sure they often came up over the West Hill and slept in the barn where they were warm and away from the outdoor elements. They seemed to know on the farm the big meal was at the noon hour. They also seemed to know when the family was all seated at the table, because that was when we would hear the gentle

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories knock on the door. They never had to ask for something to eat: we knew why they were there. Mother would look them over and if they were clean, having taken a wash in the Bonnechere River before coming up the hill, they were invited in. If they looked like they needed a hand-scrub, Mother would take out a wash basin of warm soapy water, put it on the back stoop and told them to come in when they had washed up. The brothers would squeeze together on the bench and make room for the tramp and Mother would laden a plate full of food. I would watch mesmerized as the food vanished as if they hadn’t eaten in days – there was a good chance they hadn’t. Father would try to make conversation, but the tramps said little. We five children

clammed up as if we had lost our tongues. I wanted to know where they had come from and how they had become tramps, but of course I too sat mute while the food disappeared. As quickly as they came, they spent just enough time to cram in their heaping plates of food and then they stood and were ready to head out again. Mother would tell them to sit a spell and we always knew what she was going to do because it never varied all the time we lived through those Depression years. She would take a brown paper bag off the rack at the back door. Then she would go to the bake table and make thick sandwiches of whatever meat we had had for dinner. Always she would tuck in cookies or a big piece of pie and then she would go to the ice box

and with the ice pick would chip off big slivers of ice and put them into a glass jar that at one time held pickles or preserves, filling it with cold water from the granite pail. Often I would see the tramp wipe his eyes with the back of his hand, as he thanked Mother and tucked the bulging paper bag into the sack he carried on the end of a short pole resting on his shoulder. He would go as quietly as he came, out the back door and down the hill, making his way to the railroad tracks. I knew he would be waiting until the next freight train rounded the corner at the very back of the farm. It would slow down to handle the curve in the track. Father said this was where they would jump on the train and go off to goodness knows where. We never saw the same tramp twice. They came in all shapes and sizes, and all ages. Some of them, I thought, were no more than boys, young like my three brothers. I would wonder why they were tramps, and my brothers weren’t. Then one day I learned at least a partial answer to that question. The young tramp

that rapped on our kitchen door that day was whip thin and as clean as a whistle. His hair was coal-black and slicked down, showing that he had taken more than a quick wash in the river. Just as he finished tucking into his second piece of pie, he asked Father for a job. He talked more than any other tramp we had ever fed. He

a day and a flat-fifty of cigarettes every Saturday night, he would work for nothing. That was how one of those tramps who rode the rails and depended on the generosity of others, became our hired man. He really became a member of the family and I would often see Father slip the man, who was really a boy, a dollar when he could spare it.

Often I would see the tramp wipe his eyes with the back of his hand, as he thanked Mother and tucked the bulging paper bag into the sack he carried on the end of a short pole resting on his shoulder. was what was called a “home boy.” He came from England as a 12 year old, he said, from an orphanage. He was sent to a farm in the Ottawa Valley, where he suffered from abuse and endless hours of labour. Father told him there was no money for a hired man and besides, we had three strapping boys to do the chores. But the tramp persevered. He told Father if he could sleep in the barn and have three meals

The tramps were a symbol of that era. We knew not where they had come from or where they were going. It mattered little what time of year it was. Winter or summer, almost daily we could count on seeing a tramp coming up over the West Hill. They were never turned away. They came hungry and they left with full bellies and enough food to take them to the next stop on their endless journey.

Creative, caring kids host sixth-annual bottle drive Jessica Cunha

jessica.cunha@metroland.com

News - The Crepeault children can’t bottle their enthusiasm for the family’s sixth-annual fundraiser for local charities on Aug. 10. The seven youths – Jacob, 17, Hannah, 15, Sarah, 13, Simon, 11, Nathaniel, 9, Lily, 7, and Joseph, 14 months – are part of the non-profit Kreative Kids who Kare. Every year, they collect empty wine, beer and liquor bottles to raise funds for the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario and the Kanata Food Cupboard. “It’s become a lot of fun to plan everything and organize it all. It’s a nice project to work on as a family,” said Hannah. “I just like … being able to give back to the community because it’s just done so much for me and my family. Just helping

another family is awesome.” What started as a small family project has quickly grown. “Our friends get excited about it every year,” said Hannah. This year, the Crepeaults have 15 vehicles lined up to pick up donations, whereas last year they had seven. Volunteers go door to door in Bridlewood, asking people to donate any empty alcohol bottles. “It’s a great way to give back to the community every year. It’s become a tradition for us too, something we look forward to every summer,” said Jacob. “I just like the whole day in general. It’s a fun day to count down to and when it happens, it’s a great way to spend the day; (going) door to door to raise money.” Since 2007, the Bridlewood family has raised $9,000 for CHEO and the food cupboard.

The Crepeault children can’t bottle their enthusiasm for the family’s sixth-annual fundraiser. The founders of the nonprofit group Kreative Kids who Kare will collect empty wine, beer and liquor bottles to raise funds for the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario and the Kanata Food Cupboard on Aug. 10. In 2012, they collected $5,000 in cash and food donations; the food weighed 317 kilograms. The goal for this year is to surpass the $10,000 mark.

Ed degree in Ontario > Eligible for certification with Ontario’s College of Teachers & NY State > 100 hours of observation in the classroom before student teaching > 16 weeks of student teaching experience > Practicum and student teaching can be completed in Ontario

“We’ll just try to go for bigger than the previous year,” said Jacob. The idea for a bottle drive started when Wendy and her husband Kevin asked their children to come up with a plan to get involved and help out their local community. The family chose CHEO as the recipient because each child has needed treatment there at one time or another. “We’ve all been there so much we just thought we could

do something for them,” said Jacob in a previous interview. Last year, all donations went to help the Kanata Food Cupboard, which had issued a plea to the community because its stores were depleting. “We chose the food cupboard last year because we read an article in the newspaper and they were saying there was a real need for food … They were running low,” said Hannah. “We just figured it was a great cause and we’re giving

People are invited to drop off empty bottles, funds and nonperishable food items at the Crepeault house, located at 20 Redstone Ln., prior to the fundraiser, said Wendy. As well, the family will sign off on volunteer hours for students. “We’d be happy with people helping out,” added Jacob. The fundraising drive kicks off on Aug. 10 at 8 a.m.

The High Price of Big Spenders It all seems rather hopeless for Europe’s debtor-nations. Four of them — Portugal, Ireland, Spain and Greece — have needed bailouts since the beginning of the global debt crisis. The underlying cause of this is too much government spending, financed with too much debt. History has shown us that these governments can transform themselves, because it has been done before. Over the last two decades Germany, Israel and Canada have overcome debt and unemployment problems by departing from a culture of big government, towards one of free enterprise. In Germany only 25 years ago, a fifth of the population lived under communism. In his first term in office, Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder’s socialist policies made Germany the sick man of Europe. After four years, the country suffered a 10% unemployment rate and debt levels that exceeded the European Union’s allowable limits. In 2003, Schroeder underwent a transformation and introduced policies which cut welfare programs, simplified labour rules and lowered taxes for businesses and workers. Since then, unemployment has fallen by almost half to 5.3%. This is more than seven points below the Euro-zone average. Unlike its neighbours, the German government is expected to balance its budget by next year.

Coming apart at the seams

Israel has also revamped its welfare state. In 2003, thenFinance Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recognized the need to change from the socialist policies of the day. According to the authors of Start-Up Nation: The Story of Israel’s Economic Miracle, “Netanyahu cut tax rates, transfer payments, public employee wages and 4,000 government jobs. He also privatized major symbols of the remaining government influence on the economy — such as the national airline, El Al, and the national telecommunications company, Bezeq — and instituted financial-sector reforms.”

Passers-by stopped to watch a three-storey brick apartment building being demolished at 282-284 Booth Street on the morning of July 12. The building is adjacent to the still-empty northwest corner of Booth and Somerset streets, which was left vacant following a 2007 fire that consumed multiple residences.

The result is that Israel now enjoys one of the most energetic and durable economies, despite having scarce natural resources and no friendly trading partners in the region. The jobless rate has fallen by almost half since the reforms, despite today’s global economic slump. What worked for Israel is working for Canada. Approximately 20 years ago, Canada signed the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which expanded one of the most successful trade relationships ever. Since that time, government spending as a share of the economy has plummeted from 50% to 41%, allowing for lower business and personal taxes. Since 1985, the federal government has privatized 30 state-owned entities, totalling $12 billion. These combined factors led the Heritage Foundation to report that Canada has the 6th freest economy in the world, ahead of the United States at 10th.

WELCOMES Alaina Rossiter as Marketing Manager. Riverstone is pleased to announce the appointment of Alaina Rossiter as Marketing Manager of the Carlingwood Retirement Community.

Such economic freedom has given Canada the lowest net debt-to-GDP ratio in the G8, a record number of people employed and a one-third drop in the jobless rate since the reforms began two decades ago. In fact, the story is the same in all three jurisdictions: less debt and more jobs than their competitors.

Construction is nearing completion for Riverstone’s newest residence. We will be offering a selection of care alternatives: independent living, residential care and assisted living. The 8-storey development will feature 159 units, including one- and two-bedroom suites, as well as studio suites.

If the four bail-out nations had taken the same steps 20 years ago, we would not have a debt crisis in Europe today. Fortunately, it is never too late to do the right thing. Pierre Poilievre MP Nepean-Carleton A version of this article originally appeared in the National Post.

that will inflate the bill by $80 million. The budget for the project, which now stands at $980 million, cannot stand to get any larger, or it will impact the city’s ability to tackle other transit projects on its list, said city treasurer Marian Simulik. Deputy city manager Nancy Schepers said staff have not done a “deep enough analysis” to come up with a price tag for burying the remaining 500 m. “That’s what we’d propose to do in the next phase,” she said. Schepers did say there is a significant difference in cost between keeping the rail line above ground or burying it. Per kilometre, it costs approximately $40 to $60 million to build on the surface, but that number balloons to $100 to $150 million per kilometre for underground rail. The line wouldn’t begin construction until around 2018. It would carry 1,300 passengers in each direction during the peak hour by 2031. A handful of delegates – mainly representatives from nearby condo buildings – told the committee they’d prefer to see the route run down Carling Avenue, or for the line to at least be fully underground. Neeta McMurtry of Neighbours for Smart Western Rail said the concerns “are not simply about NIMBYism (not in my backyard).” She was concerned about protecting parks and green space. Although the delegates were still displeased, Egli pointed out that the city has changed the plans substantially in response to residents’ concerns about property value, access to the waterfront, safety and more. “You’ve made us do our job better,” he said. Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs, who represents some of the residents who stand to be most affected by the rail line, echoed Egli’s comment. “I know that it has seemed at times that we weren’t listening,” she said. “But things changed drastically after the last open house.” Estimating the cost of burying the remaining section along the parkway isn’t the only work on city staff’s agenda. They will also be looking at refining the station locations, including analyzing whether it might be a good cost-saving measure to eliminate one of two proposed new stations at Cleary and New Orchard. A couple delegates, including McMurtry, worried the local stations would cause traffic woes on their local streets because people would drive to drop off riders at the station. Ron Bollman, representing a condo corporation at 727 Richmond Rd., said the proposed Clearly station is too large and elaborate for the needs of the local community. The stations were included because the city wants the rail system to serve the local community, too – not just commuters, Schepers said. Getting rid of one of the stations would create a one-kilometre distance between stations in that area instead of the proposed 600 m walking distance, Schepers said.

Green energy program to benefit Aboriginal students jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - Five aboriginal students got empowered at Algonquin College during a four-day course between July 9 to 13. The students hail from Golden Lake in Renfrew County and Curve Lake, Ont – about 25 kilometres northeast of Peterborough. They were chosen by their prospective band councils. Denyse Diakun, director of the college’s workforce and professional development department at Algonquin, said the aim is to teach students about green energy technology and advocacy. “It’s a partnership between the First Nation’s communities, Hydro One and the college,” she said. “Hydro One is working to diversify their workforce.”

After four days of instruction, which included a behind-the-scenes tour of the college’s Centre for Construction Excellence, students were asked to go home and present what they learned to their peers. They will also be able to perform home energy audits, Diakun said. Claude Lloyd led the instruction, teaching students about energy-saving technology and related careers. Classes were eight hours a day for the four-day duration of the workshop. The five students were a mix of high school and mature students and were paid for their time to attend the course. Sébastian Blais, from the college’s physical resources department, led the tour, giving the students a chance to look at the living lab and apply what they had learned in the first two days of classes.

First stop was the biowall, a five-storey wall made up of living plants that filter the air, providing oxygen to the atrium space and all five connected floors. Then they made their way up to the roof where they looked in at the college’s diesel powered generator, the boilers, so efficient that they only come on when the temperature outside dips below 20 degrees Celsius. Next stop was to look at the solar panels, which heat all of the water in the building. The centre also boasts a living roof, covered in grass and plants rather than asphalt. “If you look at this roof in isolation, it’s not a big deal,” Lloyd said. “But if you think about all the roofs in the city made of asphalt and heating up and wasting rain water, replacing them would make a huge difference.”

Odyssey theatre takes Shaw outside Performance of Arms and the Man coming to Strathcona Park Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

Arts - Theatre under the stars welcomes audience members to take part in a farce this summer as Odyssey Theatre brings one of George Bernard Shaw’s plays outdoors for the first time. Odyssey will present Shaw’s Arms and the Man beginning July 25 at Strathcona Park. According the play’s director, Andy Massingham, this will be the first time one of Shaw’s plays will be performed outside. It will also feature actors in masks – something Odyssey Theatre is known for. There will be little to no set, drawing the audience into the words and actions of the play. “It’s going to be like a dream and the audience will see that life is a farce,” Massingham said. The director added the costumes will be very eye-catching along with the masks and other actors in heavy makeup. “It’s going to feel like you are looking at a painting,” he said. Dubbed an anti-romantic comedy, Shaw’s play explores love, war and social status. “It’s possibly the funniest anti-romantic comedy you can see,” Massingham said. See INDOOR, page 27

Cancer fundraiser looking to put best foot forward Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - When Janice VandenTillaart found out she was cancer-free, there was only one thing she wanted to do: ride a 100-kilometre race to help raise awareness and money for the Ottawa Hospital Foundation. VandenTillaart got the news she was cancer-free in December 2012 and since that day she has been training for Ride the Rideau on Sept. 7. Setting up a team with family members and friends called Tour de Cure, the group needs to raise $7,000 to compete. So far they have raised $6,418 for

the cause and on July 7 VandenTillaart’s local spa, The Pedicure Shop in Manotick Station, decided to offer a helping hand by offering pedicures, manicures and other services with the cost donated to VandenTillaart’s team. “She is a great client and when she said she was going to participate in the ride, I wanted to help,” said JoséLucie Bastien, owner of The Pedicure Shop. Bastien said a close family member suffered from cancer and she always wanted to give back to cancer research. “I have donated throughout the years, but never had a chance to do

something like this,” Bastien said. She added that in her business she has encounters many clients who suffer from different sicknesses such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer. “In the few short years I have come to know Janice she has bravely fought this disease and continues to be strong in her outlook on life,” Bastien said. Diagnosed with endometrial cancer in January 2012, VandenTillaart said since she began chemo therapy she started to loose the feeling in her hands and toes. So she became a regular customer at the Pedicure Shop for massages and pedicures to help keep feeling in her toes.

“José has been so helpful,” VandenTillaart said. “It’s been her positive attitude, I found it’s been really good for me. And she is so good with the therapy for me. She really knows her stuff.” To help with her circulation, she began knitting scarves, chemo hats and yoga mats, giving them away to others she met in the Ottawa Hospital, or selling them at the Rideau Curling Club to help raise money for the foundation. “To me it’s better to have something to sell then to simply ask for money,” she said.

Future of Belisle site overshadows new plan for Vanier Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Concerns about what kind of “landmark building” could end up on the old Belisle Chevrolet-Cadillac site dominated a meeting about the future development of Vanier. The city is refreshing the Official Plan for Vanier, which has remain unchanged since amalgamation. The old plan encourages big-box style development, allows for buildings of up to 14 storeys in many places on Montreal Road and restricts the ability to mix residential units into commercial buildings, which is something the city now encourages. A preliminary version of the new plan would see Montreal Road redevelop mainly with six-storey buildings, stepping back to taller structures in some places where larger lots allow. But the new draft plan also paves the way for more significant developments at the two entrances to the district – at the corner of Montreal Road and North River Road, where the Eastview Plaza is located,

and at Montreal Road and St. Laurent, the site of the former car dealership. Those sites wouldn’t have any building height restrictions in the new Official Plan, according to the draft version. The idea is to mimic the controversial landmark buildings policy included in the justadopted Centretown community design plan and secondary plan. In Centretown, the community association and a group of developers formed a rare partnership to write their own version of the plan that eliminated the tall landmark buildings clause. Pheonix Homes recently purchased the Belisle site, but no development applications have been filed with the city. During a public meeting on July 8, Linda Joseph, head of the Filles de la Sagesse convent, said the sisters have heard rumours of plans for three residential buildings on the site, which she said would be “pretty serious.” “Can you imagine three or four towers (and) what that would represent?” she asked. The nuns worry about the cultural impact on the district, as well as the social and en-

Concern over potential redevelopment plans for the vacant Belisle Chevrolet-Cadillac site overshadowed a discussion about updating plans to pave the way for the revitalization of Vanier’s commercial district. vironmental impact of adding many more people and more buildings into the area, Joseph said. The affect on aging worshippers should also be a consideration, she said. The sisters know something will be built on the site, Joseph said, but they hope for something with “a human

dimension” – maybe even a museum. Residents on neighbouring College Circle were also worried about the noise a new Belisle development. “I think they’ve overlooked (the Belisle site),” said Carole Larose. But she was excited about the rest of the plan,

which she sees as the framework needed to revitalize Vanier. Larose recently moved back to Vanier from Carp. “I want to be part of this up-and-coming vibrant new part of the city,” she said. “I have pride… you want to keep the flavour but it’s time to move on.” A representative from Phoenix Homes was not available to comment on any potential development by this newspaper’s deadline. City planner Melanie Knight is in charge of the project and said she might still include a height limit for the gateways, depending on public feedback. “We are still looking at the gateway policy and questioning whether or not to actually put a height limit in the secondary plan policies or have that be something that is determined through the zoning bylaw amendment process,” she said. Keeping the old zoning on some of the large sites could lead to benefits for the community, too, since the requisite rezoning would come along with a “Section 37” community benefits payment

from the developer, Knight said. “It is better to have the Official Plan policies that guide what the overall development should look like and then deal with individual developments on their own through the zoning bylaw amendment process,” Knight wrote in an email. The proposed updates to Vanier’s Official Plan would also see sidewalks expanded to four metres wide on both Montreal Road and McArthur Avenue as sites are redeveloped. Cycling connections and intersection improvements are also priorities in the plan, and that’s something the Vanier merchants’ association is excited about. “It’s important because people are looking for that sense of place,” said Suzanne Valiquet, executive director of Quartier Vanier. She said the plan will help Vanier “turn the page” and develop in a similar fashion to Ottawa’s other successful main streets like Bank Street in the Glebe. “We’re certainly very, very pleased with what the city is proposing,” Valiquet said.

Ottawa-Merrickville bike tour offering options for 2013 Continued from page 23

The scarves have been one of the biggest means for VandenTillaart’s fundraising. The pedicure shop owner is the only local shop that VandenTillaart’s scarves are for sale. The fundraiser got off to a wet start, but that didn’t stop people from coming out and getting their toes and nails prettied up for the cause. The day also included a barbecue, pedicures, manicures, items for sale all to help raise funds to help support the team’s bike race.   Food was donated by MacKinnon’s Foodland.   The Ottawa-to-Merrickville bike tour offers two ride options this year, a 100-km route which VandenTillaart is doing, and a new 50-km route. “This year, we expanded our ride to include a 50-km option in addition to our traditional 100-km route,” said Michelle van Vliet, communications director at the foundation.

“We did this to allow more people to participate and make an impact on the fight against cancer. While it is true you never forget how to ride a bike, many people we spoke to about getting involved were just too intimidated about training for a 100-km ride.”

The new distance has allowed teams to expand and involve more staff, friends and family – along with the option of volunteering as well. Michelle van Vliet Ottawa Hospital Foundation

Van Vliet said currently there are 50 people registered in the 50-km option and 593 people registered in the 100km route. “The new distance has al-

lowed teams to expand and involve more staff, friends and family – along with the option of volunteering as well,” van Vliet said. Both distances require the same fundraising commitment of $1,500. “We chose not to alter this amount for the shorter ride because Ride the Rideau is first and foremost a fundraiser for cancer research,” she said. In the four years the fundraiser has been in operation, it has raised $4.4 million for the Ottawa Hospital Foundation. Due to chemo last year, VandenTillaart was unable to participate but she did attend the event to help volunteer at the finish line. VandenTillaart said she is nervous for the 100-km ride but is also very excited about the event and has been training since early January. After what is promised to be a hearty breakfast the ride begins at the Ernst and Young Centre and runs along the Rideau River to downtown Merrickville-Wolford. Those who participate in the 50-km

Pascale Desrosiers, Nathalie Cusson, Janice VandenTillaart and José Bastien show off pedicures at The Pedicure Shop in Manotick Station on July 7. The shop held a fundraiser to help VandenTillaart raise money for her 100 kilometre bike ride during the Ottawa Hospital Foundation’s Ride the Rideau. will be driven the other 50 to meet up with the other participants. Once in Merrickville, there

will be a barbecue, entertainment, souvenir photos for teams and a complimentary motor coach back to Ottawa.

Indoor matinees added due to weather unpredictability Continued from page 23

Originally set in 1885, Massingham said he has set the play in a more contemporary setting. The company said they are aiming to attract both Shaw enthusiasts as well as anyone else who may be walking through the park. “People are going to find it’s more than a play. It’s a bit of an event and really the play starts from the moment people entre the park,” Massingham said. This year the company will also be offering indoor matinees -- a first for the company, which said owing to the unpredictability of weather and for the comfort of some longtime patrons, matinees will take place at Academic Hall Theatre, at the University of Ottawa with performances starting at 2 p.m. on Thursdays and Sundays. Helping hands

The performance has got a few helping hands this season as eight high school students are participating in the company’s youth apprenticeship program.

Jessie Park-Wheeler/Submitted

Last year Odyssey Theatre performs Marivaux’s comic masterpiece The Game of Love and Chance at Strathcona Park. This year the theatre company will be presenting for the first time George Bernard Shaw’s Arms and the Man starting July 25. The students get to experience a professional theatre company first hand. From stage directing, administration, acting and front of the house experience, these youth get the opportunity to learn as much as they can from Odyssey during the summer months.

The program also offers students the opportunity to collect volunteer hours. “It’s great, at the end of the summer I might have at least 100 hours,” said Cléa Spencer, one of the youth apprentices. She added the hours are a bonus, but really it’s the experience she can’t get enough

of. “You get so much more than just hours,” she said. “I recommend this program to anyone who is interested in theatre, and I also recommend you bring your enthusiasm too.” For Massingham he said the experience the students is

much more educational than simply sitting in a classroom. “It’s the ultimate summer camp,” he said. “They each have their own role and it’s crucial that they care a part of it. We learn as we do. This is not drama class, it’s a show. We all, including the students, have our blood, sweat and tears in this.” City hall-goers will be able to meet Spencer and her fellow high school colleagues at city hall. As of July 17, the young troupe will be performing a love scene to garner attention for the theatre company every Wednesday from noon to 1 p.m. “It’s going to be like flash mob theatre,” Spencer said. The young Canterbury student admits she thinks it’s going to be tough trying to get people to stop and watch their short play, but she says she welcomes the challenge. “It’s such a physical performance and there is going to be some great music from another apprentice, I hope that makes people stop and pay attention,” she said. Lead actress for Arms and the Man, Pippa Leslie, said working with the students has

been great. “It’s been great. I hope we can teach them lots of things,” Leslie said. “I just wish there was this kind of opportunity when I was in school.” Spencer said Leslie and the other actors and stage hands have been great at making this program a great experience for her and the other students. “Everyone has been really helpful, they will answer any of your questions and they make you feel like we are all a part of the process,” she said. Regular performances are Tuesday through Sunday at 8 p.m. Tickets are $24 for general admission, $19 for students and seniors and $9 for children under 12. Matinees are $15 for general admission and $9 for children under 12. Families can purchase group tickets for $45 for the matinee shows and $60 for the evening shows. The box office opens at 7 p.m. and the gate at 7:30 p.m. The pay-what-you-can shows move to Sunday nights. More information about the company or the apprenticeship is available at odysseytheatre.ca.

Greening Lansdowne ‘We’re actually putting the park back in Lansdowne Park,’ said Mayor Jim Watson as he hopped aboard a drilling machine to chip away at the concrete that is a ‘symbol of the past’ for the park. The 7.3-hectare urban park at Lansdowne will cost $32.2-million to build and it will be open and mostly complete by next summer. In addition to a large lawn and 20 event spaces, the park will feature a children’s play area and water feature, a refrigerated outdoor ice rink and an orchard producing edible apples. Overall, the park will increase the amount of green space at Lansdowne threefold by adding four times as many trees. Capital Coun. David Chernushenko joked that the urban park portion is the only part of the redevelopment that no one took issue with.

Fresh market growing success in Overbrook Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

Community - A small lineup of fresh-food lovers was on hand to greet the opening of a new monthly market in Overbrook. The Good Food Market

set up at the corner of Lola Street and Presland Road to offer fresh fruit, produce and dry goods for area residents. It is the brainchild of the local poverty and hunger working group, which is made up members of the Coalition of Community Health and Re-

source Centres in the city. Even though there are multiple farmers’ markets in the city, the Good Food Markets bring low-cost produce to areas of the city where markets aren’t available. “The idea is to provide access to healthy, affordable

Living Well Beyond Cancer A self-management program for cancer survivors and caregivers

Program at-a-glance • free community-based program that is offered in a weekly 2.5 hour-long session over six consecutive weeks • involves 8 to 15 registered participants • offers a free resource book to participants

Registration: Ottawa Unit, Canadian Cancer Society, 613-723-1744 ext. 3621 When: Every Thursday for six weeks, starting September 12, 2013 Time: 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. Where: Kitchen/Boardroom - Maplesoft Survivorship Centre 1500 Alta Vista Drive, Ottawa, K1G 3Y9 REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.

food and the markets are open to everybody in the neighbourhood,” said Kaitrin Doll, who helps run the seven markets across the city. The volunteer-run markets were first launched as a pilot project at several locations, including Sandy Hill and Michele Heights. Overbrook was one of four markets added to the list this year. The first event in June saw more than 100 people visit the market. Even before the market opened at 10 a.m. on July 6, residents were milling about, waiting as patiently as they could to purchase some goods. Angela O’Meara and her two children were among the early market goers, and they ended up purchasing a large bag full of fruit and vegetables. O’Meara said her children love to eat fresh produce and she was happy to have the market in the neighbourhood. The food is purchased through the Good Food Box program, a non-profit organization run out of the Centretown Community Health Centre, which offers weekly produce boxes for $20, $15 or $10, depending on size. The money for the market was made available through the Community Development Framework funding. Some of the markets offer activities for children, live music, and cooking demonstrations. The produce available at the July 6 market was based on a survey the organization made available after the first market. Mehdi Louzouaz, the Rideau-Rockcliffe Community Resource Centre’s community developer, said the organization received great feedback and purchased its produce based on the suggestions from

Michelle Nash/Metroland

Portia and Rex Ross shows off some fresh fruit their mom, Angela O’Meaera, just purchased at the Good Food Market in Overbrook on July 6. The market is part of an anti-poverty engagement program run through the Rideau-Rockcliffe Community Resource Centre, the Good Food Box and the Community Development Network. residents. For the second market, the organization has raised the prices, which Louzouaz said will help cover some of the cost for the upcoming third market. The third and final market will take place at the Overbrook Community Centre on Aug. 24 - the same day as the Overbrook Community Association’s community day. There were a handful of volunteers on site to set up the market early on the Saturday morning and Louzouaz said their efforts are vital to the success of the events. Vildana Stanisic-Keller volunteers for the Community Food Pantry and is in charge of purchasing dry goods for the market. Dry goods are purchased by volunteer like Stanisic-Keller

and sold for the same price – there is no mark up. “We are busy every week, in a different community,” she said. “But it’s a good busy.” Stanisic-Keller said she loves to volunteer for the markets because it allows her to get out to different communities and meet new people. “I have fun every time I come out,” she said. “I think this is the right way to fight malnutrition for kids and seniors. For me it’s the beauty to meet so many nice people from the community. I learn so much about neighbourhoods I didn’t know before and we are making good food available. It’s great.” More volunteers are needed to help run the markets and can contact kaitrin.doll@ofcrc.org for more information or visit gfmottawa.ca.

Rideau River park celebrates 50 years with community day Emma Jackson

emma.jackson@metroland.com

Emma Jackson/Metroland

Rideau River Provincial Park will mark 50 years on July 20. Assistant park superintendent Harvey Cornell and senior park clerk Laurie Dulmage hope the community will help them celebrate the anniversary. While individual activities are free all day, a day pass entrance to the park is $14 per car. Assistant park superintendent Harvey Cornell said the celebration is open to everyone. “Just like anything, we want to celebrate the anniversary,m because

it’s quite a big milestone,” he said. “We want to talk about the park.” The 98-hectare green space is located off Donnelly Drive near Beckett’s Landing, along the “long reach” of the Rideau Canal – the longest stretch between any two lockstations.

The park was part of the province’s explosion in park development in the 1950s and 1960s, when Ontario’s parks jumped in number from only eight in 1954 to a whopping 77 in 1961. In 1957, Ontario’s minister of lands and forests, J.W. Spooner,

News - Any 50th anniversary is reason to celebrate, and staff at Rideau River Provincial Park are jumping on the opportunity. On Saturday, July 20, members of the public are invited to wish the park a happy anniversary with a funfilled day of fishing, canoeing and exploring. At various times between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m., families can meet Smokey the Bear, visit with conservation officers and learn about the park’s rich habitats and wildlife with natural heritage education staff from sister park Murphy’s Point. The Friends of Murphy’s Point will host a barbecue and cake-cutting event for a nominal fee, and in the afternoon families can jump in an 18-person voyageur canoe for an hour-long free tour on the Rideau. Families should register in advance for a voyageur canoe tour. Family fishing on the public docks will also be available, but park supplies are limited so families should bring their own tackle if they can. Family activities wrap up around 5 p.m., but everyone can return at 8 p.m. to see the Celtic Rathskallions perform in the park until 9:30 p.m. with Celtic-rooted music, dance, drama and stories.

announced plans for a swimming beach and campground on forest station land along the Rideau. Camping started in 1959, and in 1963 Rideau River was officially designated a provincial park. In those days, a day pass cost only 50 cents, and a camping permit was $1. For $3, you could use the park all season. Today the park is a popular site for day use as well as car and RV camping. Along with 184 regular camp sites, it offers six group sites which are well-used by local scouting and community groups. The park boasts sandy beaches, a fitness trail and fishing opportunities. Senior park clerk Laurie Dulmage has worked at the park for 13 years and said it’s unique because of its accessibility. “We’re on the Rideau Canal, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and we’re close to Ottawa and close to Merrickville,” she said. Down the road, visitors can find hiking trails and a golf course. In the past decade the park has upgraded its washrooms and sewage systems, and has seen much of its park infrastructure updated as well. Last year 39,000 visitors used the park. The park is located at 2680 Donnelly Dr. For more information call 613-258-2740.

Helping people learn to speak with confidence Non-profit course teaches structure, poise Jessica Cunha

jessica.cunha@metroland.com

HUGE DIFFERENCE

“It makes a huge different when you learn you can structure your talk,” said Quirt. “The course teaches you specific ways.” Each Christopher Leadership Course has a minimum of 15 people, up to a maximum of 25 per group, with four to five instructors who are graduates of the course. Everyone, from the teachers to the president, is a volunteer. “We put out a quality course as cheaply as possible,” said Quirt. “The basic thing about it is for people to gain confidence in their speaking abilities.” The class meets once a week over the course of 11 weeks, for three hours a night. Every student speaks twice in front of the group each week. The class boasts a success rate close to 100 per cent, said Quirt. “People who get through the first two weeks almost always make it through to the end,” he said. “It’s not a miracle. People who speak broken English will still speak broken English, but they’re going to speak with better structure and less tendency to hum and haw. “There is an easy, fun way to speak confidently in public,” he said. “And it works.” As an instructor, Quirt said he’s had the opportunity to see people

Kanata resident Alan Quirt signed up for the Christopher Leadership Course, a non-profit registered charity, to build his confidence in public speaking. Now an instructor, Quirt said he’s had the opportunity to see people ‘turn their life around’ with the newfound ability to speak confidently. “turn their life around” with the newfound ability to speak confidently. “It opens up a range of new opportunities for them,” said the Kanata resident. “I’ve seen a surprising number of people who have used

the course as a springboard to create a personal businesses … some of them have become authors.” One that stands out in his mind was a student from 2005. Linda Pond signed up for the course to help her build her confidence.

need to build a good story and how to remember it without notes.” She took her newfound confidence and became an entrepreneur – designing the Fab Light, a little LED that illuminates the inside of coolers, with her daughter. The experience gave Pond enough content to write and publish her first book: Top Secrets of a Girl Entrepreneur. Two years ago she went on the Dragons’ Den, a television show where budding entrepreneurs pitch their inventions to a panel of business moguls. Although her taping never aired, it provided Pond with a great story. “It was a pretty fabulous experience. It was pretty fun,” she said. “If you have a good story and you’re able to put the message out there, that’s what it takes to be a good speaker.” Pond took the advanced Christopher Leadership Course, which focuses on presentation skills, then became an instructor. “As a student and as an instructor it’s high energy and high fun,” she said. Her path to confidence has provided her with ample opportunities to speak in public and she also consults for other inventors, helping them get their products to the market. “It’s a great ride; lots of fun,” said Pond. “This all came out of Christopher Leadership, so I say ‘Why not?’” The next course will take place in September, with another in January.

News - Twelve years ago after being laid off from his job at Nortel Networks, Alan Quirt knew he would be facing a slew of interviews when looking for new employment. Although he was used to giving presentations in front of people, he was always scared when he got up to speak. Wanting to give himself the best shot during his job search, he began to look around for something that would help improve his public speaking. He found the Christopher Leadership Course, a non-profit registered charity that has been teaching public speaking in Canada for more than 50 years. He said the move changed his life. “I’d been doing presentations at Nortel for years but I was always scared,” he said. “After I lost my job at Nortel … (I) decided that I needed to be able to speak better in interviews.” He signed up, completed the 11week course, and now teaches others how to become confident speakers. He has also completed a number of consulting jobs, including helping others apply for science tax credits. “I don’t think I could have done that without … the course,” said Quirt. “The general confidence I learned was exactly what I needed.”

Working for a high-tech firm, one of Pond’s mentors came up to her one day and asked if she knew why no one listened to her. He said to her: “It’s because you don’t have confidence in what you’re saying.” “I took that to heart,” said the Carleton Place resident. “I looked at different ways I could increase my confidence.” She Googled public speaking classes and found the Christopher Leadership Course. For good measure, she also signed up for singing lessons. “For me that meant just do something better,” she said. “It was an interesting time.” The course is designed to help even the most shy people, she said. “They start off with really, really simple things: what’s your name and where did you live? Really simple things you could speak in front of people,” said Pond. “Each lesson gets a little longer … The whole confidence thing allows you to take little bits at a time, a steady progression up.” The hardest thing for Pond to get used to was not using notes; the Christopher Leadership Course teaches students how to speak without the aid of reminders, which can help speeches sound more natural and less forced. “You’re not up there reading anything,” she said. “You talk about what you know. You talk about things you’ve experienced in your life, which makes it really easy to remember. “It teaches you the skills you

run – and an afternoon one too! He’s an outgoing, friendly boy who gets along well with other dogs and kids older than 12. He’s looking forward to learning some basic commands, so his new family will need to send him for obedience training. Charlie is a creature of habit who is most

comfortable in his crate, which he’s used since he was a teeny pup. Meet Mr. Butters (A140976), a twoyear-old, neutered male, white and black domestic shorthair cat who would love to find a home with a fellow feline! Mr. Butters was surrender to the shelter by his owner June 5 and is now available for adoption. Mr. Butters is known to hop into the tub after your daily shower to play in the water left behind. He’s a very affectionate cat with a gentle disposition and would be a great fit in any home. Mr. Butters would rather not be left outdoors, as he is deaf, and would not be able to hear the world or dangers around him. He would love if his new family could provide him with an array of scratching posts to use daily. If you are interested in finding out more about Charlie, Mr. Butters or the other pets available for adoption from the Ottawa Humane Society, visit www. ottawahumane.ca, call the Adoption Centre at 613-725-3166 ext. 258, or e-mail adoptions@ottawahumane.ca.

Leaving a dog alone in a hot car, even for just a few minutes, can be fatal. Each year, the Ottawa Humane Society (OHS) receives hundreds of calls about dogs left in vehicles on hot summer days. A parked car can quickly become a furnace, even on a mild summer day, endangering an animal’s life and leaving the owner at risk of criminal charges. With only hot air to breathe, a dog’s normal cooling process – panting – doesn’t work. A dog can withstand an internal body temperatures of 40C for only a few minutes before brain damage or death can occur. Last year, we received 325 telephone reports of dogs in cars on hot Time to make days, 126 of which lead to warnings and advisories. The OHS Rescue a grooming and Investigation Services team removed eight dogs from cars and appointment charged nine individuals, resulting in eight convictions. The OHS will continue to lay charges when animals are found in distress. Signs of canine heatstroke/heat exhaustion include:

Arts - The sixth annual Greely Legion Country Music Festival promises another toe-tappin, foot-stompin weekend of music and merriment beginning July 26. This year’s outdoor festival, which runs Friday, July 26 to Sunday, July 28, will welcome Douglas, Ont., band The Douglas Connection to headline on Saturday night – their first performance inside Ottawa proper. “They’ve been at the Shawville festival, but not as far east as Ottawa,” said organizer Linda Wyman. “This is something new in Ottawa, a new entertainment for us.” Other headliners include Howard Hayes, Lauren Hall and Roger Damphousse, and WRD, an Ottawa-area old-time country band that includes local legend Wilf Arsenault. The festival will also welcome the McWilliams Boys from Navan – a set of

six brothers under the age of 12 who will lead the audience in song and step dance. More than 15 performers, bands and country acts will take the stage over the weekend, beginning at 7:30 p.m. on Friday with a performance from WRD. “There’s a good variety,” Wyman said. “There’s a lot of old time music, but there’s some gospel, too – the Gallagher family will be there. We haven’t ventured far from what we’re doing.” Rough camping on the legion’s large property at 8021 Mitch Owens Rd. will open by July 24, and meals will be available at the legion for a nominal cost beginning on Saturday morning. Weekend camper passes are $40 per person in advance or $45 at the gate. Walk-in day passes are $10 on Friday and Sunday and $20 on Saturday. All proceeds will be donated to the Winchester District Memorial Hospital. Wyman said the legion hopes to beat last year’s $4,000 donation.

Aries, work to strengthen a relationship with a coworker or acquaintance. Developing this relationship now will bear fruit down the road. Taurus, take some time for quiet contemplation this week. You have a lot of things on your mind and need to work through them before you can focus on other things. Gemini, you may find yourself on a spending spree and it may be difficult to know when to put your credit cards away. Bring a friend along to help you reign in your spending. Cancer, with so many big decisions looming on the horizon, you may be thinking of running away from it all. But all of your problems will still be waiting for you when you get back. Leo, people have been coming at you from all angles and you’re ready for a break. Retreat to a quiet place sometime this week and pamper yourself. A change of scenery breathes new life into your daily routine, Virgo. Although it may be temporary, you will embrace the opportunities to recharge for a while.

Here’s How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

Libra, a new job may give you a new perspective on life. Make the most of this new perspective and apply it to both the personal and professional parts of your life. Scorpio, sometimes people just do not get your sense of humor, so don’t be upset if a joke doesn’t garner the laughs you anticipated. Your closest companions will still share a laugh. Sagittarius, you will host a house full of guests this week. This role suits you well, so don’t worry as the party draws closer and the pressure begins to mount. Capricorn, the final countdown until big changes are in store has begun. Are you ready for all of the things you still have to get done? If not, get busy and enlist a few helpers. Aquarius, you are often supportive of those around you and they appreciate that support. Continue to be a valued friend and confidante, and you’ll be happy you did. Pisces, you may have to ask for some help this week. Accept this support and recognize it’s necessary to get the job done.
