EMC news - Mayor Jim Watson wants everyone from street kids to student council presidents to participate in the city’s youth summit. Watson said he is always inspired by young people and he hopes the city can leverage their opinions to influence how the city makes decisions. The event on Oct. 12 will invite 200 young people between the ages of 16 and 25 to city hall for speakers, discussions and workshops, but event chairman, Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury, invited all the city’s youths to participate by watching the webcast on ottawa.ca and tweeting using the hashtag #ottyouth. Registration is limited. Youth can register now at ottawa.ca/youth. “My goal is to give street kids and student council presidents and everyone in between a chance to address the shortcomings of the city,” Watson said during a launch event at Operation Come Home in Centretown on Sept. 6. “This is not going to be a monologue. It’s going to be a dialogue between youth and city council.” The day-long event was inspired by the success of last year’s senior’s summit, Watson said when he announced the event at the beginning of the year in his state of the city address.

Will bikes take priority over cars downtown? Project looks at changing way city decides how road space is allocated Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - The city uses benchmarks to decide when there are so many vehicles that it needs to expand a road. Now, Ottawa is looking at creating similar benchmarks for pedestrian and bicycle traffic. As the city looks at how to

move people around downtown after the city’s underground light-rail tunnel is built and operational in 2018, managing the levels of pedestrians and cyclists in the core and ensuring there is enough space for them is a priority, said Nelson Edwards, the lead planner on the city’s Downtown Moves project.

On Sept. 5, Edwards told the city’s transportation committee that he’ll deliver an interim report in November. But he gave a taste of some of the ideas the Downtown Moves working group has been tossing around. Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes, whose ward comprises most of the study area,

asked Edwards whether his report will look at the “level of service” philosophy as it could be applied to pedestrian and cycling traffic. While the city takes “”level of service” benchmarks for vehicle traffic very seriously, Holmes said, there is no similar metric for assessing when to add or expand pedestrian or cycling facilities.

Area MP pushes to make union membership optional PSAC support for separatist candidates sparked move: Poilievre jennifer.mcintosh@metroland. com

EMC news - Nepean-Carleton MP Pierre Poilievre says he is defending the rights of federal public servants, despite criticism that his push to allow them to opt out of union dues is undemocratic. Following the election of the Parti Quebecois, Poilievre slammed the Public Service Alliance of Canada for sup-

porting candidates from two separatist parties. “It’s ridiculous that a union that is supposed to represent the interests of the employees of the federal government would support a separatist party,� Poilievre said. “It’s obviously not in their best interests if the country were to separate.� Despite his latest criticism, Poilievre said the conversation about changes to union legislation began much earlier. Poilievre said he was ap-

proached by a constituent at Greenfield’s Pub in Barrhaven. The man was a federal public servant who was angry the union had given money in support of students protesting tuition fees in Montreal. “These students were disruptive and caused safety concerns,� Poilievre. “That cause had nothing to do with the workplace and he felt that his money shouldn’t have been used that way.� Poilievre said what he is

Threatening legislation to impose rules on how a union serves and communicates with its own members – in this case a union with one of the most democratic structures and which is among the most accountable to its members because of federal law – is absurd and dangerously undemocratic,� he said. Poilievre denied the changes would impact the labour movement. He said unions that provide a service to its members will continue to get dues. “Unions should earn the dues they receive, rather than compelling their membership to pay them,� he said.

“People who don’t want to be part of a union shouldn’t have to cross 170,000 jobs with the federal public service off their list,� Poilievre said. Poilievre cited the more than $340,000 the federal New Democrat Party had to repay United Steelworkers and United Food and Commercial Workers as an example of how existing legislation isn’t enough to ensure unions don’t overstep their bounds and donate to political parties. The president of the Canadian Labour Congress Ken Georgetti says Poilievre is trying to manufacture a crisis where none exists. According to Georgetti one of the services of the unions is to analyze the platforms of political parties seeking election. Many organizations – private and public – offer a variation of this service to their members, subscribers and customers. “Let’s be clear about this. The MP for Nepean-Carleton is not interested in the rights or freedoms of federal public servants,� Georgetti said in a press release. “He’s playing politics.� Georgetti called the proposed legislation threatening and said it would interfere with how the union serves and communicates with its own

Paul Rainville, left, who plays Ernie is pictured with son George (Michael Mancini) and a speech therapist (Kate Hurman) trying to piece together some memories from an old address book. The play will run at the GCTC from Sept. 11 to 30.

GCTC kicks off season with The Secret Mask Tale of son coming to father’s aid after stroke both ‘heartbreaking, funny’ Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland. com

EMC entertainment - The Great Canadian Theatre Company will kick off the 2012-13 season with Rick Chafe’s play The Secret Mask. The play tells the story of a man who is trying to reconnect with his estranged father after the pair is thrown together as a result of the father’s stroke. Ernie – played by Paul Rainville – walked out on his family when his son George (Michael Mancini) was just a toddler. Thirty-eight years later George is contacted out of the blue to help with his father who has suffered a stroke. The stroke had left Ernie with a condition called aphasia – a speech disorder that causes him to struggle with memory loss. To make sense of their past, Ernie and George must get to know each other through fractured memories and mixed up language – with often comedic results.

“It’s not often that heartbreaking and very funny are used together to describe a play,” said director Ann Hodges. “But that’s the best way to describe Rick Chafe’s brilliant, semi-autobiographical play.” Kate Hurman, who plays all the woman characters, said she identified most with Ernie’s speech therapist. “I met with a real speech therapist who works with stroke patients,” she said. “The work can be very heart-

breaking.” As the play progresses, the audience gradually begins to understand Ernie’s unique language, which uses descriptors like cardboard to represent people who are dead. The story is based on Chafe’s experience with his own father who suffered from a stroke. “My siblings experienced all the same difficulties as George in trying to help my father who couldn’t remember where he lived or how to do or say the simplest things,” Chafe said in a press release. The show is set to run until Sept. 30. Tickets are on sale at the GCTC box office or online at www.gctc.ca.

Dogs wiggle, waggle for Humane Society Bruce Pit walkathon looking to raise $185,000 to support services Gabrielle Tieman

EMC news - Ottawa residents and their canine companions joined forces with the Ottawa Humane Society on Sunday with a goal to raise $185,000 during the 24th annual Wiggle Waggle Walkathon. The OHS’s “most important fundraiser of the year,” included walks of up to three

kilometres through Bruce Pit near Bells Corners, a silent auction, face painting and vendor booths sporting the newest treats and toys for dogs. “This (event) goes a long way to helping support these animals,” said Mayor Jim Watson, the ribbon-cutter for the event. “I’ve been shaking paws all day.” Mandy Chepeka, communications manager with

the Ottawa Humane Society, said organizers expected to reach or exceed the previous year’s fundraising numbers while having fun with Ottawa families and “just about every breed” of dog. The walk debuted in 1998 and has since grown to include over 2,000 participants. The proceeds will go towards programs and services the OHS offer to more than 11,000 ani-

mals brought annually to their doors – including veterinary care, foster care, animal rescue and humane education. “The event helps raise money and provides the animals with enough food and medicine while they are in our care,” said Allie Holloway, a customer service representative with OHS. “It’s a hardworking team.” For more information about the Ottawa Humane Society, visit the website at ottawahumane.ca.

Canada’s Economic Action Plan It is stormy waters in the world today. Across Europe and the United States, millions go without work. Those who do work face a lifetime of crippling taxation to pay for the entitlements of their countrymen and the debts of their governments. Canada by contrast is strong.

HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF

Many believe that the 2008 US financial collapse and recession were the result of irresponsible behaviour by business and banks. In fact, this behaviour was merely the symptom. The illness was massive government intervention to turn the mortgage business into a social program. The government encouraged millions of Americans to spend money they did not have on homes they could not afford, using loans they could never repay. It then gave them a tax incentive never to repay it by allowing them to write off their mortgage interest. The bigger the mortgage debt, the lower the taxes. The U.S. government debt is now bigger than the entire American economy and one in five American households had mortgages that were bigger than the value of their homes. Mark Steyn points out, according to the congressional budget office, that by 2020 the United States government will be spending more annually on debt interest than the total combined military budgets of China, Britain, France, Russia, Japan, Germany, Saudi Arabia, India, Italy, South Korea, Brazil, Canada, Australia, Spain, Turkey and Israel.

Yet if America is jogging off the debt cliff, Europe is sprinting. The European welfare state borrows on taxes to give people stuff they have not earned. Standard and Poor’s has downgraded French and Austrian government debt and has reduced the ratings of seven other countries in the Euro currency block. Because no one will lend their own money, the European Central Bank must step up and lend 150 billion Euro of other people’s money. Thank goodness, the EU has a bailout fund to prevent government defaults. Too bad Standard and Poor’s has downgraded that bailout fund, so soon the bailout fund will need a bailout. Margaret Thatcher pointed out that the problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money. We call that a “sovereign debt crisis”. I describe this humiliating American and European experiment with the welfare state because it is precisely the same experiment the opposition and its union bosses wish to impose on Canada. We know where it leads. Everyone takes and nobody makes. Work does not pay and indulgence does not cost. Money is free and money is worthless. Canada is one of the greatest success stories of human history precisely because our leaders were practical and smart. From the beginning, they understood the basic rules of success: people should work hard, pay their bills, spend only what they have and let free people do the rest. More freedom meant less government. Low-cost government meant a low-tax nation. Then, as now, Canada’s low-tax system worked. In the first 20 years of the 20th century our population grew by an unprecedented two-thirds, the wheat yields in the Prairies by 500% and exports more than doubled. Today we have an economic action plan based on our history. To stay strong, Canada must never repeat the mistakes of Europe and the United States and we must instead focus on what Canada has already done right. Pierre Poilievre MP for Nepean-Carleton

ented organization to direct their operation costs directly to services and programs. The result, McKay said, was the storefront called Repurpose. “We already had a jewelry business, called Beadworks and when we moved into this building, we had the retail space to expand and with this funding taking care of the other expenses, we had the opportunity,” she said. The organization focuses on turning at-risk youths lives around through education and programs, such as the new storefront. According to McKay, this storefront gives youth a chance to find a purpose. United Way Ottawa changed the way the way the organization allocated funding raised from its annual campaign two years ago, creating goal priorities and criteria to appeal to donors. Hydro Ottawa, which participates in the campaign, took a portion of its donations and directed the funds towards the Brighter Tomorrows Fund, an energy efficiency improvement program. “It is not sexy, but this funding allows organizations to im-

EMC news - Youth from Operation Come Home can now take an active role in changing their future thanks to targeted funding from Hydro Ottawa donated through the United Way. Operation Come Home made the announcement on Sept. 7 at its Centretown location at 150 Gloucester St., showcasing how a grant from Hydro Ottawa and United Way Ottawa’s Brighter Tomorrows Fund has made it possible to for the organization to open a new retail outlet with art and jewelry made by youth who frequent the centre. “It is really hard to get funding for this type of space, idea,” said Elspeth McKay, executive director of Operation Come Home. The organization received more than $9,000 to incorporate a number of small upgrades which were outlined in a 2011 energy audit. The building had insulation installed in the walls and headers, replaced toilets and installed an electronic thermostat - all of which allowed the youth-ori-

Mathieu Fleury, the United Way’s 2012 campaign co-chairman, said this is what the United Way’s funding is all about targeting communities and organizations that need it. “The Brighter Tomorrows Fund is a great example of how United Way works with organizations to achieve their business and corporate social responsibility objectives, while addressing a specific need in the community,” said Fleury. “In this case, community agencies often do not have the funds to improve the energy efficiency of their facilities, but now, thanks to Hydro Ottawa, they have access to funding.” In the past 11 years, Hydro Ottawa and its employees have contributed more than $1 million in support of the campaign. This year, the company gave $85,696 to the fund, which was distributed to Operation Come Home and six other agencies in the Ottawa region. Repurpose will officially open its doors on Sept. 24. More information on the store or the organization is available at operationcomehome.ca.

Get electoral boundary changes right

U

ndertaking the task of re-drawing federal electoral boundaries is surely daunting, but it serves to ensure all Canadians are as equitably represented in the House of Commons as possible. While the recent announcement of a proposed federal electoral map makes several positive moves for voters in the city of Ottawa, it also fails to address an issue that many residents of this city can relate

to: the urban-suburban-rural divides. The total number of electoral districts required in Ontario has grown by 15 to 121, triggered by 2011 census data showing this province’s population has grown by more than 1.4 million since 2001. According to the proposal created by a federal electoral boundaries commission, a number of new ridings have been created in areas of dramatic population growth across the province. Some ex-

isting riding boundaries have likewise been adjusted. Among them are the proposed new riding of Nepean and the renamed riding of Carleton-Kanata, formerly Carleton-Mississippi Mills. There are positive aspects to both of these moves, but they were easy decisions to make. Move the western border of the renamed Carleton-Kanata riding to the city limits, break off the well-populated suburban chunk of the massive Nepean-Carleton riding and

name it Nepean. Job done. But there are missed opportunities here. Residents in rural places like Carp, Fitzroy Harbour and Dunrobin are still at the mercy of the suburban voters in Kanata. The voices of voters in Dwyer Hill, North Gower and Metcalfe are still drowned out by residents of Stittsville, Riverside South and Greely – larger, denser suburban nooks in what is mainly a rural riding. The situation is slightly dif-

ferent in the east end, where pockets of voters in places like Cumberland, Carlsbad Springs, Vars and Sarsfield remain in the sprawling Glengarry-Prescott-Russell riding, despite the fact they pay city property taxes. These examples stand out as missed opportunities for the commission, opportunities to ensure voters receive fair, balanced representation in the House of Commons. Presently, it must be difficult for an MP, such as Nepe-

an-Carleton’s Pierre Poilievre or Carleton-Mississippi Mills’ Gordon O’Connor, to balance the way they represent their constituents. They are beholden to two different viewpoints, but one of those viewpoints gets them elected, the other – owing to smaller numbers – doesn’t. The federal electoral boundaries commission should be doing its utmost to make this balancing act easier for our elected officials, so they can serve an electorate with common concerns. If it involves redrawing the entire Ottawa electoral map to ensure the population is balanced, so be it.

Was he saying “thanks for being so patient� or was he saying “thanks for waving?� It could have been any or all of that, or none of it. Probably what mattered most of all was that we were human beings acknowledging that we’re all in this together, which, when you think about it, we don’t do often enough. On our lakes there is an old tradition that people in boats wave at people in other boats as they pass. Who knows what that means, perhaps something about members of the community of boaters saluting each other. The funny thing is you notice it when it doesn’t happen. And if it does happen, it can change the way you think about the other boater. Say he’s driving some great big noisy overpowered ocean liner of a boat that you think

has no business being on a lake this size. And as you’re thinking that, he gives you a friendly wave. Oh well, you think, at least he waved. Waving is a connection. Sometimes it’s an unpleasant connection, such as the well-known one-finger wave which usually occurs in traffic. Other times the connection is fleeting and distant. Children wave at a passing train. Passengers wave back. What does it mean for either of them? Yet they couldn’t not do it. The wave as “thank you� figures prominently in our daily lives. You know the situation: You’re coming out of a gas station or a side street into a heavy stream of traffic and somebody slows to let you in. When you are safely into the traffic, you wave your thanks. With your whole hand. And you mean it. Without people like that, willing to give up a few seconds of their busy lives, we’d be living in chaos, gridlock interrupted by some people barging into traffic and others slamming on their brakes. There would be a lot more one-finger waving then. The funny thing is that, even though the sacrifice we make in letting someone in is tiny, we still expect to be thanked for it. We want to see that wave. When we don’t, we are annoyed. “Wave, dammit,� we mutter from behind the steering wheel. The same thing goes for when we hold open a door for someone. It’s certainly no trouble, but we expect thanks for it. It may be sheer vanity but it may also be that we like people to acknowledge that we exist. Such acknowledgement is all the more important in an age when so many of our dealings are with computers, robots and other gizmos that know us only as a number, if at all. So we wave our thanks and feel thankful for waves. Mind you, for some of us, no thanks are required. Simply doing the good deed is reward enough. Those would be the saints among us. Too bad more of us are not like that, but then we’d all be saints and who would we look up to? And who would we look down at?

Let the kids fail

A

friend recently posted on Facebook that her four-year-old son botched a batch of cupcakes for his playgroup. To ward off disappointment, she baked another batch on the sly and allowed her son to pass them off as his own. He proudly marched into the playgroup party the following afternoon, bragging about his newly acquired baking skills, none-the-wiser about his momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stealth cooking exercise. Reactions from our mutual friends ranged from â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so sweet!â&#x20AC;? to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the best mom ever!â&#x20AC;? But I think she missed a golden opportunity. What if, instead of protecting him from his failure, she had told him overtly that he had failed? What if they had spent the next half hour discussing the reasons why the cupcakes didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rise in the oven? What if they had tried to find ways to make the

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse failed batch into something successful â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a little icing to hide the flat tops, perhaps? What if they had baked the second batch together to see if they could correct their mistakes from the first round? The takeaways from this innocent little baking exercise could have been far more rewarding. Like science experiments, cooking offers a chance to learn how to deal with failure in a relatively safe space. And according to a new book by author and Canadian-born journalist Paul Tough, learning to handle adversity when weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re young may mark the difference between our ability to sink

or swim as adults. In How Children Succeed, Tough provides an overview of neurological and psychological research studies that seem to suggest how well we eventually cope â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in school, work and society -- comes down to certain personality traits we acquire as children â&#x20AC;&#x201C; notably, curiosity, persistence, grit, self-control, delayed gratification and conscientiousness. Unlike cognitive skills that can typically be taught through rote learning and measured by IQ and standardized tests, these noncognitive functions are harder to assess and perhaps even more difficult to teach. As the above cupcake example dem-

onstrates, fostering these personality traits can take time. And it can be difficult, if not impossible, to acquire these skills in our middle-class world where there seems to be no room for failure. The paradox â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the subject of Toughâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book, which is essentially about education reform in the United States -- is that a lot of kids face adversity every day. Poverty, violence and substance-abuse are the norm for many children. What Tough sought to figure out is why some kids in these environments emerge to become highly functional adults â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as measured by their ability to hold down jobs

BC

or acquire post-secondary degrees â&#x20AC;&#x201C;- while others seem stuck in the endless cycle of generational poverty. Tough cites a number of sociological experiments that suggest that emphasizing things like problem-solving, empathy and morals early on can make all the difference. To put my own spin on his findings, it would seem that kids who face adversity, but are taught ways to deal with it, emerge with a lot more â&#x20AC;&#x153;grit,â&#x20AC;? to use Toughâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s word, which is essentially the resilience to deal with lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sometimes harsh realities. On the other hand, those who face daily adversity in an un-

supportive environment and those sheltered from failure â&#x20AC;&#x201C; such as the majority of kids in middle-class families â&#x20AC;&#x201C; donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to have what it takes to eventually become well-functioning adults. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult to say how much impact parents can have on their childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s character development. Given the number of external influences that contribute to the shaping of personality, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s likely minimal. But at the very least, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth thinking about how to provide opportunities for our kids to botch something completely once in a while. Flat cupcakes may just be a good place to start.

Local group paddling from Ottawa to Washington Trip to help raise awareness of need to protect water resources Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - A group of Ottawa-area paddlers are making the trek of a lifetime, paddling in a canoe from Ottawa’s Victoria Island to Washington, D.C. as a part of the Capital to Capitol by Canoe trip. Covering about 50 kilometres a day, the group will paddle on rivers, lakes, canals,

harbours and bays, They’ll cover the St. Lawrence Seaway, Lake Champlain, the Hudson River and Chesapeake Bay, and anticipate arriving in Washington in six weeks. The group is diverse and varied, ranging from Westboro canoe adventurer Max Finkelstein and his 13-year-old son Isaac, to American paddlers meeting with the crew along

motioned to the Ottawa River. The first-day paddle saw them travel to Orléans, where they camped at Petrie Island, hosted by volunteer group: Friends of Petrie Island. It wasn’t far from home for Beacon Hill’s Norm Radford, who is ready for the entire journey from one capital city to another. Now retired, Radford has participated in long distance cycling trips and is a former marathon runner. He said he’s looking forward “to an adventure of a lifetime (for) such a worthy and important cause.” The group will change as the trip goes on, with some members joining for certain legs, and other guest paddlers joining in for several days at

times. The 11-metre canoe will hold eight to 12 paddlers at a time, and will occasionally leave the water when needed to drive to the next river or passageway on the group’s route. Tourists may be in for a shock they see the canoe approach the New York harbour, which will likely be the most challenging part of the route, said Tilgner, with a sharp contrast to the remote northern routes he is used to navigating. “No one makes this kind of trip, ever. This will be the first time as far as we know, that anyone has ever done this,” Doucet said. “It’s a way of keeping our rivers healthy.”

the way. Some of the paddlers have been friends for years, while others are just getting to know each other now as teammates. Their reasons for taking the trip are as diverse as the crew, but they primarily focus on respect for water as a resource and the protection of the waterways and history surrounding them. “What brought us together

is, despite our backgrounds, we all recognize water as the most valuable resource,” said paddler Nicholas Tilgner, who has worked as a guide on the Yukon River. Group members hope they can draw attention to the need to restore the rivers by making the trip, which is supported by the Canadian Wildlife Federation. This includes Canada and the United States working together to have ecologically healthy rivers running between the two countries. Dot Bonnenfant, one of the paddlers, said that there is a forgotten history along many of Canada’s waterways. The group incorporated this information into the official launch, made from Victoria Island on Aug. 5. As the trip is dedicated to Algonquin elder grandfather William Commanda, his daughter, Algonquin elder Evelyne Commanda was at Victoria Island to perform a blessing. Victoria Island was the launch site for the group because it has been the traditional spiritual meeting ground for the Algonquin people for centuries; many of whom travelled the Ottawa River. “This is pretty important history to us, and it’s lost. People take this for granted,” said Glebe resident and former city councillor Clive Doucet as he

Paralympic medal dream dies for judoka Walby Ian Ewing

EMC sports - In what was likely his first and last Paralympic Games, Tony Walby began brilliantly, before succumbing to world-class opponents and injury in the men’s 100+-kilogram judo event on Saturday, Sept. 1 in London. Walby was eliminated Saturday evening by the reigning two-time Paralympic gold medallist Ilham Zakiyev in the repechage round, finishing one step short of competing for a bronze medal. The mountainous Azerbaijani scored an ippon (the maximum score), to end the bout after only 1:44. Zakiyez went on to win one of two bronze medals, while Walby received medical attention for a second time that day – this time to treat what appeared to be a shoulder injury. The Ottawa judoka was clearly upset after his loss, head hung in disappointment as he declined media interviews. For the man whose motivation was to win a Paralympic gold here, finishing seventh out of 12 athletes in his class was a bittersweet end to a dream reborn. A long-time member of the national able-bodied judo team, the Takahashi Dojo athlete retired from the sport at 35 – about the time his vision deteriorated to the point of le-

Ottawa’s Tony Walby celebrates his victory by ippon over Julien Taurines of France in the first round of his Paralympic competition on Saturday, Sept. 1 in London. gal blindness. But two years later, when Walby discovered he qualified to compete in the Paralympics, he began training again. “A couple years ago, it was a bit of a pipe dream,” he recalled during an interview earlier on the day of his Paralympic competition. “When I got closer and closer, it just came together.” In his opening contest, the Mechanicsville-raised judoka convincingly beat Frenchman Julien Taurines in the round of 16 to advance to quarterfinals. Walby controlled the match

from start to finish, despite his significant weight disadvantage. After several near-successful attacks, Walby finally got his opponent’s back and threw him for a spectacular ippon two minutes and two seconds in. “I fought him once earlier this year in Germany,” Walby said after that match, “and threw him with almost the same throw.” After a couple unsuccessful attempts, he described, “I got him just where I wanted, the perfect grip, and he went in the air and went down.”

The Canadian contingent in the crowd, including his wife, 17-week-old daughter, and a number of other family, went wild. There was little time for celebration, however. Walby’s quarterfinal matchup later that session came against Yangaliny Dominguez Jimenez of Cuba, who he’d previously lost to at the Parapan American Games. “I didn’t have a great match against him at the Pan Americans,” Walby admitted, “but this isn’t the Pan Americans. This is a whole new thing.

“I feel good. I feel strong.” The positive attitude was warranted. Over four minutes into their five-minute contest, the Canadian and the Cuban were still knotted at zeros, each foiling the other’s every attack. Just when it seemed a golden point (sudden-death round) was certain, disaster struck. With 11 seconds remaining on the clock, Walby attacked, looking for a hip throw. The Cuban took advantage of Walby’s high body position and countered with ko soto gari (small outside leg reap), throwing him to the ground and landing all 100+ kilograms on top of Walby, whose fingers were in a hyper-extended position at the bottom. The referee signalled a single point as the Canadian cried out in pain. As a Canadian trainer rushed onto the mat, the three referees gathered. After a few moments of confusion, they signalled an ippon, and the Cuban was declared the victor. After receiving attention from the team doctor and learning nothing was broken in his hand, Walby explained what happened. In a great deal of pain when his fingers were caught as they fell, Walby tapped out instantly. But the referee hadn’t noticed. He was prepared to let the match continue – that is,

until Walby told him. “At that point right then, I was OK. I probably could have continued fighting,” recounted the veteran who is also a lead instructor at Takahashi Dojo on Melrose Avenue. “But I’m a fair play guy, and I did tap right away, so I told him. That ended the match.” Later, the federal government computer engineer entered his evening repechage bout, where a win would propel him into a bronze medal match. But almost from the utterance of “hajime” (begin), it was clear Walby was in trouble. The hulking Zakiyev controlled the fight from the start and the Canadian appeared to be just hanging on. Then in an instant, the dream was over. Now 39, Walby is unlikely to make the trip to Rio de Janeiro in four years as an athlete, although he is interested in helping to grow the Canadian para-judo program from a coaching perspective. But there is certainly an unforgettable memory that he’ll carry from his Paralympic experience. “For my little daughter to be in the stands, my newborn …” Walby trailed off, finding his words. “I know she won’t remember it, but I will, for the rest of my life. To me, that’s probably the biggest thing, knowing she’s right there.”

A recent investment by a family owned company is making business news in Eastern Ontario. NOCO Canada, a family owned and locally operated company has been serving Canada’s energy needs for decades.

NOCO also offers a used oil recycling program in some areas to make sure that businesses never need to worry about the proper collection, transportation, and processing of the waste they generate. “We believe the addition of the new products and new geography allows NOCO to address unmet consumer needs in the territory. Along with our key product brands, Mobil and Esso, we offer excellent service and local personnel. Our distribution model is strong and this new venture will provide strong value to the consumers throughout the region,” said James D. Newman, President of NOCO Canada.

EMC news - Fred Fox offered students at Carleton University a message of hope on Sept. 6 and urged them to work hard to keep his brother Terryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dream alive. Thirty-two years ago, Terry Fox captured the imagination of the country with his Marathon of Hope. This fall, students at universities across Canada are uniting to celebrate his legacy and raise money for cancer research. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is important that students realize that it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter what age you are at, it is still important to continue what Terry started and raise money to find cure for cancer,â&#x20AC;? Fred Fox told students on Sept. 6, as Carleton joined the effort, called Terryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s CAUSE - College and University Student Engagement. Eight Canadian universities are part of the initiative that will see them hold a major campus event that includes runs and other fundraisers

with all proceeds going to the Terry Fox Foundation. Carleton will join with students from the University of Ottawa for a joint run that will take place on Sept. 16 Terry was 18 years old when he was diagnosed with bone cancer and forced to have his right leg amputated 15 centimetres above the knee in 1977. While in hospital, Terry was so overcome by the suffering of other cancer patients, many of them young children, that he decided to run across Canada to raise money for cancer research. He called his journey the Marathon of Hope. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is not just about research and finding a cure for cancer, he was showing people you could accomplish anything if you give all you have,â&#x20AC;? Fred Fox said. As provincial director for The Terry Fox Foundation in British Columbia, Fox said he has witnessed first-hand the impact his brotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legacy had on countless supporters and cancer research. Fox spoke of the importance to continue what his brother started in 1980. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am proud of the passion that people have for Terry,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are proud that so

many people look up to Terry and are inspired to have their own hope in the things that they are doing.â&#x20AC;? Terry started his run in St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, N.L., on April 12, 1980. Enthusiasm grew and the money collected along his route began to mount. He ran 42 kilometres a day through Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Atlantic provinces, Quebec and Ontario. However, on Sept. 1, after 143 days and 5,373 kilometres, Terry was forced to stop running outside of Thunder Bay, because cancer had appeared in his lungs. He passed away on June 28, 1981 at the age 22. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After being diagnosed with cancer for the second time, Terry said the Marathon of Hope must continue without me,â&#x20AC;? Fox said of his brotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s historic run. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He passed a baton to thousands of people creating a legacy that is 32 years running.â&#x20AC;? Despite Terryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s young age, Fox said he had an incredible vision. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He learned young that life was precious and short and believed cancer provided him with a purpose,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;His message was a call out for people to unite and work together.â&#x20AC;?

EMC news - The peak of rush hour came to a halt on Sept. 4 at 5 p.m. when a car fell into a sinkhole on highway 174. Mayor Jim Watson announced the city found a supplier for 18 sections of sewer pipe needed to fix the damage caused by the sinkhole two days later, on Sept. 6. The city had difficulty finding a supplier for the 3.6-metre diameter pipe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I completely understand the aggravation that people are experiencing as everyday life is disrupted by this failure of infrastructure,â&#x20AC;? Watson said at a press conference. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We fully understand the need to get this fixed as quickly as humanly possible.â&#x20AC;? The section of pipe under the eastbound lanes of highway 174 was slated for a $1.5-million renewal and crews were on site for the first time cleaning the pipe hours before the sinkhole formed. Alain Gonthier, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manager of asset management said there is no indication the crewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work contributed to the pipeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s collapse. The storm sewer pipe under the westbound lanes is newer,

dating to about 1975, and is not at risk of a similar collapse, Gonthier said. The pipe that failed was 50 years old. The sinkhole is located on the eastbound Jeanne dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Arc off-ramp off the highway. One car went into the sinkhole, with the only a portion of the rear bumper left above ground. The sole occupant of the car, a 48-year-old man, was able to exit the car on his own, and was able to exit the sinkhole with help from bystanders. Fire department spokesperson Marc Messier said the driver told firefighters he noticed a dark spot on the road, but was unsure of what is was, thinking it could be fresh asphalt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He had started slowing down due to traffic on the onramp,â&#x20AC;? Messier said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When he got up close to it, he realized it was collapsing and couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop.â&#x20AC;? After being treated by paramedics for a minor leg injury, he was released. He declined transportation to hospital. Fire crews and police then off the portion of the highway, as it came to a standstill from the 417-174 split to Montreal Road. After firefighters cleared the area and secured the pe-

rimeter, they turned the site over to city crews to determine the source of the problem. City crews were on location into the night to assess the cause of the collapse and begin making repairs. The car moved a few metres down the pipe and was soon settled under the eastbound lanes near the highway median, Gonthier said. The city encourages commuters to take OC Transpo, which will be given priority use of the remaining highway lanes, and stagger commute times to reduce the amount of traffic congestion. The first two sections of pipe were scheduled to arrive in Ottawa on Sept. 7, with the remaining sections shipped throughout this week. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s infrastructure manager, Alain Gonthier, said the city does not know how much the pipe will cost, even though the contractor has been told to move ahead with the purchase. Despite not knowing the overall cost, Watson was able to pin the premium Ottawa will pay for a rush order at $15,000. With files from Laura Mueller and Alex Boutilier/Metro News

Art ideas aim to help Rideau Street image Area residents get a sneak peek at proposed public art ideas Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Creating a conversation between the two ends of Rideau Street was a main theme of the public art pieces proposed for the downtown thoroughfare. As part of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s One Per Cent for Art program, the city will spend approximately $135,000 to install outdoor artworks along Rideau after it is reconstructed from Dalhousie Street to the Cummings Bridge over this year and next. Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury said he is a supporter of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public art program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It adds some cultural, visual pieces to the street,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We always complain that there is too much concrete and streets are too heavy on cement,â&#x20AC;? Fleury said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With the addition of tree planters and other (things), youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re able to really â&#x20AC;Ś beautify the street.â&#x20AC;? The city asked artists to submit proposals for art that could unify the street, from the â&#x20AC;&#x153;downtown Rideau,â&#x20AC;? considered the urban theatre, fashion and arts district, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;uptown Rideau,â&#x20AC;? the eastern portions of residential Lowertown and Sandy Hill and where the street meets the Rideau River. Four finalists, who each received a honourarium of $2,500, showed off their designs during an open house at the Rideau Street library branch on Sept. 5. MARK THOMPSON

Salem, Ont., glass artist Mark Thompson said he wanted to reflect the modernization of Rideau Street with four colourful glass beacons along Rideau Street. The beacons themselves would be comprised of an interwoven grid of coloured glass that creates a shifting pattern as people pass by. Each beacon would be inside a 1.1-metre glass cube atop a platform, mimicking information kiosks. At night, the cubes would be lit from inside by blue-ish LED lighting, similar to the style of bright white streetlights that will be installed along Rideau Street. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would give a more contemporary feel to the whole

thing,â&#x20AC;? said Thompson, who grew up in Alta Vista. ERIN ROBERTSON AND ANNA WILLIAMS

A classical bronze sculpture of a woman and a man sharing a message via carrier pigeon was proposed by local artists Erin Robertson and Anna Williams. The duo recently completed a public art installed entitled Bellwether at the Longfields Transitway station in Barrhaven, consisting of a flock of four bronze sheep and a border collie. The Rideau Street installation would include a main sculpture of a figure at either end of the street (possibly one at Cumberland Street and one at Wurtemburg Street), with 20 bronze pigeons scattered as groups, pairs and individuals down the length of Rideau Street. A female figure standing on a chair speaking into a megaphone that emits carrier pigeons would be situated in the downtown section, while a male listener would receive the message in uptown Rideau. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is highlighting the need for communication between those two areas in our society,â&#x20AC;? said Williams, a Centretown resident. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It creates at story, a kind of narrative as well,â&#x20AC;? said Robertson, who lives in Hintonburg. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that someone can follow along the street â&#x20AC;Ś as they see one figure, then see the birds and where they are going and the other figure, and create a story between them,â&#x20AC;? Williams added.

Watson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m blown away by the symbolism (of street trees). It could be positive. It could be negative.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s were the element of irony comes in, Watson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the irony of a free-spirited tree being reined in by the reason of the city,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Manotick resident David Watson said his lifelong affinity for trees and their unique situation in urban environments was the inspiration for his proposal. Watson designed three rectangular columns, each about 2.5- to three-metres tall and cast in bronze. The individually designed columns would have unique markings and a square base that would reflect the grate and interlock pavement settings that are often used to contain street trees.

teacher Allison Woyiwada and will look to raise money to help with medical expenses and post-surgery therapy costs. The concert will take place at the Southminster United Church on Sept. 22 and the money raised will help to pay for therapy and accommodation costs at the restorative program at Saint-Vincent Hospital. Woyiwadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter, Marya Woyiwada, has rallied her motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s friends, family, former students and colleagues to help. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I sent everybody an email and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a single person say no,â&#x20AC;? Marya said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have no real monetary goal set for the concert, I am just hoping lots of people would open their hearts and wallets and help provide her the best rehabilitation possible.â&#x20AC;? Marya said that without fundraising, her mother has few options available for therapy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nothing is really covered, aside from her hospital stay, everything has to be paid out of pocket,â&#x20AC;? she said. Woyiwada taught for 28 years at Hopewell before retiring in 2008. The passionate music teacher continued to pursue her love for music with performances and directing for the Savoy Society of Ottawa. She was diagnosed with a brain aneurysm in December 2011 and underwent surgery in May. Since the surgery, Marya

Former student and trumpeter Nick Cochrane will be among those performing at the concert. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I immediately wanted to help,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know with the years of teaching she has been involved with so many students, I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine it will

Glebe gets ready for annual house tour Event raises money for neighbourhood activities group Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Six home owners in the Glebe will open their doors to the public to help raise money for youth programming in the neighbourhood. The 12th annual Glebe House Tour takes place on Sept. 16 and allows interested individuals the chance to check out six unique homes in one of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s historic neighbourhoods. The money raised goes towards programming for the Glebe Neighbourhood Activities Group, which runs programming at the Glebe Community Centre. Clare Rogers, volunteer coordinator for the group, said this tour is the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second largest fundraiser. The event is used to keep costs reasonable for programming at the centre and according to Rogers the event usually raises around $15,000, with all the proceeds directed to the centre. She said some of the programs run out of the centre are in desperate need for funding and this event helps fill that gap. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The youth programming is typically at a loss, but it is important to have something, some kind of activities for them to do after school,â&#x20AC;? Rogers said. More than 80 volunteers are needed to make the event run smoothly and Rogers said is not possible without the help of Suzanne McCarthy, the Glebe

House Tour chairwoman. McCarthy and the team of volunteers have been working since March to prepare for the event. The first step, McCarthy said, is to find home owners willing to allow more than 500 people check out their homes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would love to have a selection to choose from, but that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to happen,â&#x20AC;? McCarthy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We take what we can get and this year, it seems like we have a great selection of homes.â&#x20AC;? The committee puts the word out at the community centre, on the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website, at area businesses, at local schools and playgrounds to find out which home owners are interested in participating. This year, the homes vary in size and style, including a completely green-friendly home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a nice mix this year,â&#x20AC;? McCarthy said. She has been a volunteer for the house tour for the past four years and said she thinks the tour is successful because people are always interested in how other home owners decorate or renovate their homes. The tour offers a complimentary shuttle bus and free refreshments at the Glebe Community Centre. McCarthy said the shuttle and the refreshments are donated, to ensure all the proceeds go directly to programming at the centre. Tickets for children 12 and older as well as adults cost $25 and can be purchased on the Glebe Neighbourhood Activities Groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website at www. gnag.ca. All ticket holders have a chance to win one of two home decorating consultations which will be drawn during refreshments at 2:30 p.m. at the Glebe Community Centre.

Easy-to-make ‘mother sauce’ has unlimited possibilities

O

f all the millions of recipes that exist in cookbooks, there’s one which is found more often than any other. It appears in cookbooks published around the world – from Eastern Ontario to France to Australia. You probably have it in at least one of the cookbooks in your kitchen right now. The recipe is for a “basic white sauce,” and it’s made with three ingredients – butter, flour and milk. In France, they call it “one of the great sauces,” but they also have another name for it – the “sauce mere” or “mother sauce.” And that’s probably the best name for this sauce because it’s the starting point for so many different recipes. It can be flavoured with cheese, herbs, mustard or wine, and served over vegetables, meat, poultry or fish. Although the basic white sauce has been used in both home and professional kitchens for years, it became a lot simpler to make with the introduction of the microwave. The recipe that follows is for creamed salmon on toast, a convenient and quick supper dish. It starts with a medium white sauce and you can use this basic sauce recipe for

PAT TREW Food ‘n’ Stuff any other dish that calls for it. The microwave technique for cooking it is explained stepby-step. CREAMED SALMON ON TOAST

• 2 tbsp. butter or margarine • 2 tbsp. flour • 2 cups milk • 1/2 tsp. butter or margarine • 1/2 cup frozen peas • 1/2 medium onion, chopped • 2 cans (213 gram) salmon, drained • salt, pepper to taste Use a microwave-safe bowl or a measuring cup that holds four cups. In the bowl, melt two tablespoons of butter or margarine on high for 40 to 50 seconds. Stir in the flour until it forms a smooth paste. There’s no need to cook this mixture. Add the milk all at once and stir well. Microwave on

high, uncovered, for four to five minutes. During this time, stir the sauce once every minute, scraping around the bottom of the bowl to mix in all the flour paste. When the sauce is slightly thickened, cook it one to two minutes longer on high. This time, stir the sauce every 30 seconds to prevent lumps from forming and the sauce from boiling over. The sauce is done when it’s thickened and bubbly. If you’re making creamed salmon on toast, place the half teaspoon of butter, frozen peas and onion in a small microwave-safe dish. Cover and cook on high for two minutes. Stir the onion mixture and the salmon into the white sauce. Cook on high for one to two minutes longer, stirring every 30 seconds, to heat the salmon. To serve, spoon over toast. Use one or two pieces of toast per person. Serves four.

Sometimes you just have to get your hands dirty Everyone knows the creative process can be rewarding and fulfilling for adults without being messy. But, let’s face it: sometime getting your hands dirty is half the fun. It’s not just for kids anymore. Whether you want your creativity to be mucky and yucky, or clean and pristine, there is bound to be something interesting near you listed in the City of Ottawa’s Recreation eGuide available at ottawa.ca/recreationguide. There is probably no better way to make a mess than through pottery. Artists at the Nepean Visual Arts Centre produce more than 50,000 pieces of art each year. This year, some of them can be yours. Think about Discovering Your Voice in Clay, Sculptural Handbuilding or maybe a Wheel and Hanbuilding Combo. For a splash of colour in your work area there are painting classes of various media offered across the city. Whether you are a beginner or an expert, you can work with oil, acrylic, watercolour or mixed media, explore abstract expression or classic portraiture. Does Canvas and Cocktails sound appealing? For something artistic and practical, learn to make a table, tray or mirror frame mosaic. Using stained glass tailored to suit the individual (beginner or improver), learn about techniques and materials and take home the completed project of your choice.

If you would like to eat your art, there are cooking classes available for young and old alike. Classes involving sushi, phyllo pastry and wine are on the menu, with cake decorating for dessert. Don’t worry, if you really want to keep your hands clean while being creative, there are several classes available across the city and in your neighbourhood that involve drawing, sketching, calligraphy and creative writing. The art of photography, which used to be messy, may have gone digital in recent years, but there are still plenty of opportunities to explore this medium in City classes. Get an introduction to the medium, sharpen your skills or simply learn how to Take Your Camera for a Walk. Fall Classes are starting now!

Sugar bowl was sometimes lacking

T

here was no doubt about it, Father needed a new suit. The only one he owned was threadbare, and even though he hadn’t grown an inch, the cuffs on the legs were above his ankles. No doubt because Mother had tried to wash it one Monday and now even the sleeves were too short. There was no getting around it. He needed a new suit, and the ad in the weekly Renfrew Mercury was just what the doctor ordered – three pieces for $14. Father said there was no money for such frivolity. Mother said going to the Lutheran Church on Sunday dressed like a tramp raised the purchase well above frivolity. I knew Mother had waited until the big wood box of hand-me-downs had come from Aunt Lizzie in Regina to make sure there wouldn’t be something suitable from Uncle Jack. But as always, whatever Uncle Jack once wore had to be severely altered before it would fit Father. Uncle Jack was about Father’s height, but there the similarity ended. My sister Audrey said he looked like a pineapple. I have no idea how she knew what a pineapple looked like, because I never knew one to come into the house, but I did know Uncle Jack was more round

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories than long. His arms were huge and hung well below his hips, and it always looked like he was carrying a bag of grain under his jacket. Without altering the suit, you could put at least two of Father in it. Now Mother, when she moved to the farm out in Northcote, tried her best to master the old pedal Singer sewing machine and she did well on simple things like clothes for Audrey and me, but when it came to trying to make Father fit into one of Uncle Jack’s suits, she failed miserably. It always ended up that the suits, after being taken apart, became jumpers or skirts for my sister and me. The Mercury had come in the middle of the week and Mother said there was just about enough money in the blue sugar bowl in the back-to-the-wall cupboard to buy the suit. What was lacking would be made up when Mother peddled her eggs, butter and chickens on Saturday in Renfrew. So it was decided Saturday was the day Father

would be getting his new $14 suit. The excitement ran high that week in our old log house in Northcote. That didn’t mean we could ease off on the workload. Chores were done as usual morning and night in the barns and Mother made sure my sister Audrey and I kept up with what was expected of us in the house too. But you’d think we were all getting a new outfit, not just Father, as the day drew closer. Mother took the blue sugar bowl out of the cupboard a few days before we were to head into Renfrew. She dumped the coins out on the kitchen table with a couple crumpled $1 bills. Then she moved the money over to the top of the ice box and stacked the coins in little piles on top of the bills. The blue sugar bowl went back into the cupboard. She figured she’d have to sell at least four chickens, five or six pounds of butter, and six dozen eggs to make up the difference between what was sitting on the ice-box and

what the suit would cost. The day before we were to head into Renfrew, just before we were to sit down to eat at noon, Father came into the kitchen with a long piece of harness in his hands. He stood silently at the back door, never taking his eyes off it. “Broke. Just as I was putting it on Queenie. This is the piece I have fixed at least a dozen times. I’m afraid it won’t take another fixing. Can’t use the team without it.” He didn’t have to say any more. Mother went to the ice box and slid the coins into her hand with the bills. She looked at it for a minute and walked over to the door and handed it to Father. It would take just about all of it to replace the worn-out harness that should have been replaced long before. Horses and their harness meant survival back in the 1930s. A farmer couldn’t farm without either. Nothing more was said about the $14 suit. We went into Renfrew as usual on Saturday for our few supplies, bought only after Mother made her house calls along the back streets of the town with the cleaned chickens, butter and eggs. That day she had sticky buns as well. It would be a long time before the blue sugar bowl had in it enough for what Father called a frivolity like a

new suit. Sunday morning saw him at the Lutheran Church in the same old suit he had worn for years. Mary Cook will be speaking about the “Joy of Memories” at the Friends of the Experi-

mental Farm annual general meeting on Sept. 19. All are welcome to attend this free event at the Neatby Building, located at Carling Avenue and Maple Drive. Call 613-2303276 or visit friendsofthefarm. ca for more information.

Slew of mentors to attend event

Unisex Hair Design & Esthetics Unis Continued from page 1

The Older Adult Plan and the upcoming Older Adult Action Plan were informed by the seniorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s summit. Similarly, Fleury said the youth summit will lead to five to 10 tangible initiatives the city can undertake to make Ottawa more youth friendly. The youth summit will also feature a slew of mentors young people can chat with to find out how they charted their course to success. That list includes the keynote speaker, David Hale, founder of Social Group, a digital, mobile

and social marketing strategy firm. He is also on the board of the Ottawa Community Loan Fund and the CHEO social media committee. The summit is co-organized by other local organizations, including Child and Youth Friendly Ottawa (CAYFO), which is running a photo contest in the lead-up to the Oct. 12 summit. Youth Pic Ottawa asks young residents to show off â&#x20AC;&#x153;their Ottawa.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;What is your Ottawa and what makes it youth friendly?â&#x20AC;? asked Mandi Duhamel of CAYFO. Go to cayfo.ca to submit

your digital photo and a short description of why it represents the city and what makes the city youth friendly. Submissions will be accepted until midnight on Sept. 28. The photos will be displayed during the Youth Summit. Two local youth already had a chance to get involved by designing the logo for the event. Greenboro resident Ahmad Hussein came up with the concept and Nepean resident Sara Minaeian refined it into the final product. The logo depicts a mountain surrounded by a border that mimics the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oâ&#x20AC;? logo.

Less bus traffic, placing LRT underground to free up space Continued from page 1

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the very crux of Downtown Moves,â&#x20AC;? Edwards said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will look to redistribute the space in the public right-of-way â&#x20AC;Ś to prioritize modes that can carry more people per square metre.â&#x20AC;? Removing a significant amount of bus traffic from downtown streets by putting light rail transit underground instead, will free up a lot of street space, Edwards said. His study will help the city decide

how best to use that space. A key part of the project is responding to the needs of all street users, Edwards said. For instance, Slater Street already has a lot of storefronts, Edwards said, so widening the sidewalks there would provide even more incentive for people to use that route. Albert Street, which is currently bogged down by Transitway buses, could provide good opportunities to replaces buses with bicycles and pedestrians instead of buses and

cars, Edward said. The final report will come in March of 2013 and include ideas to capitalize on the changes LRT will bring, including urban design solutions that can be used to co-ordinate streetscape proposals and road design after LRT is built. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been made clear to us thatâ&#x20AC;Ś itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the quality of the urban environment that will influence choices of how people get around downtown,â&#x20AC;?

itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an â&#x20AC;&#x153;awful situationâ&#x20AC;? that likely results from improper use and maintenance of the devices. The boilers smoke more if green materials are used instead of dry wood or pellets, and some people even burn garbage and other materials, which produces dangerous toxic smoke. For people dealing with a problem hydronic heater on a neighbourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s property, their only recourse will be through the courts, Marc said. The rules still need city councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final approval.

most logical and effective way to regulate the devices is to use zoning provisions, said city staffer Geraldine Wildman, any heaters that are already in place are allowed to remain. In Renaudâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case, he says smoke from his neighbourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wood boiler has prevented him from working at his carpentry shop in the spring. For Roberts, the concern is health. His wife has a chronic cough and must use an inhaler, which the couple attributes to their neighbourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wood-burning boiler. City lawyer Tim Marc said

tall the smokestack must be. After a public consultation in May, the proposed minimum setback for a heaterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s distance from a neighbour was reduced, and agriculture zones were excluded from the 8,000metre square lot minimum. The finalized rules also exclude automatically fed pellet boilers and controlled combustion. But the city couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find a way to avoid â&#x20AC;&#x153;grandfatheringâ&#x20AC;? existing hydronic heaters in Ottawa, which displeased Renaud and Roberts. Since the

Renaud and Roberts detailed their frustration as neighboursâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; wood-burning boilers sat directly adjacent to their properties. If the smokestack isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tall enough and the boiler is close to a neighbouring home, heavy smoke can drift across a neighboursâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; property. With that in mind, the city drafted new rules that would prevent people from putting a boiler on their property if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a small lot. The proposed rules also include provisions for how far away the unit must be from a neighbouring home and how

R0011400731-0517

EMC news - New rules to regulate hydronic heaters in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rural areas were tweaked in response to concerns expressed earlier this summer. The rules, which are new to Ottawa but common in smaller rural Ontario municipalities, are meant to govern where property owners can place the wood-burning boilers on their lots, and on which properties they are allowed. The changes followed com-

ments voiced by both owners of the heat-producing boilers, neighbours bothered by the smoke the devices spew onto their properties and representatives from the industry. The standalone devices are common means of heating homes in rural areas. The issue was first brought to the attention of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agriculture and rural affairs committee on Jan. 13 by Carlsbad Springs resident Dan Renaud and Glen Roberts of Cumberland. The committee approved revised rules on Sept. 6.

ings at the conclusion of the mission. The report will look at the Ukraineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s existing legal framework, how the election was run, the political environment for the campaigns and whether there was any intimidation or harassment of candidates. It will also highlight legal mechanisms available for any problems during the election and possible future reforms. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is going to be important to report out to the world,â&#x20AC;? said McGuinty. Canada will be sending 500 observers to help monitor the elections. In a statement early last month, Jason Kenney, minister of Citizenship, Immi-

gration and Multiculturalism said that Canada has a long and proud history of providing observers to countries to help ensure free and fair elections. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These elections are critical to a democratic and prosperous Ukraine. We are proud that Canadian election observers, many from the Ukrainian-Canadian community, will continue to stand by the people of Ukraine.â&#x20AC;? The deployment of Canadian election observers will help assess the credibility of the elections in Ukraine, including steps in the months leading up to the elections. It will also observe voting day conditions and procedures of the Oct. 28 election.

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Ottawa South MP David McGuinty joined a team of experts sent to the Ukraine last week to assess the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upcoming parliamentary election. McGuinty is a member of a U.S.-based National Democratic Institute (NDI) delegation which was sent to check out the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s electoral conditions ahead of the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national elections on Oct. 28.

The MP was joined by Christine Todd Whitman, the former governor of New Jersey and four other delegates, a group that included international election experts, for a week-long review of the conditions and preparations in place for the election. McGuinty said that being part of the delegation is a great honour and privilege. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have met a few people in my own riding who are originally from Ukraine and they tell me they are very worried about the state of Ukrainian

democracy and whether the rule of law will thrive and whether or not this election will be conducted impartially, fair and transparent,â&#x20AC;? he said. The delegation will meet with election and government officials, political competitors, civil society organizations, and the media to gather information about the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s election process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is an opportunity for me to contribute to something meaningful (to) the Ukrainian electoral environment, but at the same time learn from it and bring Canadian experience to bear in very practical ways,â&#x20AC;? added McGuinty.

Lowertown primed for action on heritage Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - The Lowertown Community Association heritage committee is preparing to meet with the city over the future of a potential heritage district designation for the east-end of the neighbourhood. The committee has long sought such a designation, as many of the east end Lowertown heritage homes were demolished in the 1960s during an urban renewal project. Now only a handful of heritage homes remain and the community association has noticed many of these homes are being bought up for potential infill development. For residents like Nancy Miller Chenier, the co-chairwoman of the heritage and development committee, this pattern is a threat to Lowertown’s history and now is the time for action. “Time is slipping away and we would like to know there is some kind of protection,” Miller Chenier said. It was in the aftermath of a dispute the association lost with Claridge Homes over four townhouses in the east end of Lowertown, that the group decided it was time to defend the remaining heritage homes in the area. Since the Claridge dispute, the city, Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury and

MICHELLE NASH/METROLAND

The fate of four townhouses in the east end of Lowertown sparked the community to defend the remaining heritage homes in the area. the association have made an effort to work together to look at providing some protection for the remaining homes. The heritage committee is now looking for some solid direction from the city and Fleury. “Nothing has happened since really April and we want to see a solid timeline,” Miller Chenier said, adding the important thing is to have the councillor on the community’s side to fight for the heritage in the area. Admitting his expertise is not in heritage, Fleury said his job is to facilitate discussion with experts in the city and the community. “I am very factual, I come from the academic background and I believe that just

saying that something is heritage because I feel is heritage is not of value,” he said. “We need to go back to its roots and find out what it means and that’s going back to the city and in terms to the expertise that they have. “My general rule of thumb is to defer to the experts, if it is something that the community or staff at disagreement and then I will facilitate a meeting and then form an opinion, I am not just hiding behind staff, but generally speaking I trust staff.” Early work by the city’s heritage department in the area involved a volunteer study conducted by Carleton University students. Miller Chenier said the students concluded that more de-

tailed history and research of the area was needed. “I can’t help but agree with the students,” she said. “There does need to be more advocacy and community engagement to help save the remaining homes. This is a good start, but we need to build on this and mark down more of the history.” Heritage planner Sally Coutts is working on the review of Lowertown east and found the student’s report thorough. She stated the city’s next steps will be to review the findings with the community association. “There will not be an additional heritage study, but there will probably be some heritage designations as a result of the work undertaken by the students,” Coutts wrote in an email. According to Miller Chenier, a heritage study would be nice, but designation for certain homes would be a step in the right direction. “I am hoping for an indepth look at the homes, like those in Lowertown west,” she said. Fleury’s office is committed to working with the residents, with plans to hold a meeting with the association in the upcoming weeks. The goal of the meeting will be to plan a list of priorities arising from the study conducted by the university students.

A MICROCHIP ONLY WORKS IF YOU KEEP IT UP-TO-DATE Microchips provide a permanent means of pet identification that will not fade or be lost over time. Owner information can be accessed electronically and immediately, to help ensure a quick return of the lost pet. But while a microchip is a non-removable means of pet identification, your information must be up-to-date if you want the microchip to

work. If you have moved or changed your phone number, then your lost pet may not be able to return home. If you adopted your pet from the Ottawa Humane Society or have had your pet “chipped” at one of our microchip clinics, you were given the microchip number and information about the microchip provider. Please contact us at 613-

725-3166 ext. 236 if you require assistance updating your microchip. Haven’t got your pet microchipped yet? The next OHS microchip clinic is Sunday, September 23 at the Ottawa Humane Society, 245 West Hunt Club Road..

Sheeba is a spayed female, brown brindle and white Pit Bull Terrier mix who is about seven years old. She was surrendered to the shelter by her owner on April 25. Sheeba loves to make friends with everyone and is very gentle and polite with strangers. She has a moderate level of energy and will be happy to go on daily walks – she has excellent leash manners. Unfortunately because of the law in Ontario, she will need to wear a muzzle when out in public. Sheeba is a very loving and respectful dog and she would appreciate the same treatment in return. She’d rather not live in a home with cats, but enjoys the company of other canines. She needs to live in a singledwelling home with a fully-fenced yard. Due to the law in Ontario concerning her breed, this is not negotiable.

EMC news – Ontario is dead last among provinces when it comes to funding social programs, a new report revealed. An Ontario-wide coalition of almost 100 groups and organizations, called Ontario Common Front, examines growing inequity. On Aug. 29 it released Falling Behind: Ontario’s backslide into widening inequity, growing poverty and cuts to social programs. Despite having among the world’s most highly educated workers, an abundance of natural resources, and an industrial base, the report shows that Ontario is falling behind the rest of Canada in terms of growing

poverty, increasing inequity and flagging financial support for public services. It blames choices made by governments, not international economic trends, for the downward spiral. “Today,” the report reads, “600,000 Ontario families find their incomes stalled or falling behind, while the richest 10 per cent gallop away with the bounty from the sustained period of economic growth stretching from the mid-1900s to 2008.” The report found that: • 40 per cent of Ontarians, 600,000 families, are struggling with incomes that are stagnant or declining; • Ontario funds all of its social programs, including health care to education, at the lowest

City Receives Light Rail Consortia Submissions Earlier this week, the City received submissions from three industry teams to design, build, finance and maintain the Ottawa Light Rail Transit Project. Proposals were submitted by: • Ottawa Transit Partners (led by Vinci Concessions) • Rideau Transit Group (led by ACS Infrastructure Canada) • Rideau Transit Partners (led by Bouygues Travaux Publics) Each of these teams was prequalified to submit proposals after an initial Request for Qualifications was completed in October 2011. Collectively, these firms have successfully built over $100 billion in light rail projects and 2,000 kilometres of tunnels in cities across the globe. The City of Ottawa and Infrastructure Ontario will commence the evaluation of these submissions, and will recommend a Preferred Proponent along with their design, cost and schedule to City Council for approval by the end of this year. Construction of this project will begin in 2013 and the system is expected to be fully operational by 2018. For more information about this project, please visit www.ottawalightrail.ca

rate in Canada; • While poverty rates fell in five provinces, Ontario had the second highest increase in poverty rates and intensity, leaving 393,000 children in poverty (one in seven); • Ontarians pay the highest school fees, out-of-pocket health care fees and tuition fees in the country while leading the nation in cuts to corporate and income taxes. It blames both the Liberal and Progressive Conservative governments for prioritizing tax cuts for the wealthy over equality-creating public programs. The report tracks the decline with examples such as: the average CEO takes home 250 times the income of the average Canadian, while a generation ago that ratio was 25 times the average. Morgan Goddard is the NDP riding association president for Carleton-Mississippi Mills. He said there is little difference between the Liberals and PCs when it comes to spending priorities. Both believe in the myth of “austerity” meant to convince the middle and working classes to give up more just as the wealthiest take even more. “Austerity measures are not working; it’s causing greater poverty, and that’s just not right,” Goddard said. “It’s always easy to blame the poor.” He noted that Kanata is

one of the wealthiest areas of the country. But even here personal debt is piling up and two-income families are no further ahead than the one income families of the 1960s and 1970s. Goddard said the reality of trickledown economics – introduced by Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan during the early 1980s - is that kids get neglected because parents are working longer hours, communities suffer because fewer people can volunteer their time, and ecological and financial debt is loaded onto future generations.

Ontarians pay the highest school fees, out-of-pocket health care fees and tuition fees in the country while leading the nation in cuts to corporate and income taxes. In West Carleton, where Goddard lives, poverty can be masked somewhat. But the reality is many people are couch surfing and using the emergency food cupboard like never before. He said the solution is to shift the burden away from the working and middle class to restoring a balance with the wealthiest. Increasing the income tax rate by one per cent of those making over $500,000 per year – about 30,000 people in Ontario – would “cover everything missing on social spending,” he added. However, Goddard admits there are plenty of catchy slogans and false arguments that convince poor people they deserve to be poor. There is the “rich people have earned their wealth” argument which often isn’t true because of inheritance laws. There is the “rich people create jobs” argument which isn’t borne out by statistics showing most jobs are created by small and medium sized businesses. There is the “government can’t do anything right” argument which blames civil servants rather than politicians who serve elites instead of the majority of voters. “Mostly it’s that people are willing to believe what is convenient. If they don’t want to give money to the poor, it can be as simple as greed,” he said. “I think that’s a false self-interest.” Ontario Health Coalition director Natalie Mehra, primary author of the report, said the province is on a five-year plan to cut public sector jobs and services that will worsen the situation for everyone. She said Ontario residents are paying for the current shortfall in “hundreds of ways,” from the highest tuition and school fees, the highest proportion of out-of-pocket health care costs, a burgeoning array of user fees, and thousands of families wait years for support for children with disabilities.
