News - Being the Warrant Officer overseeing the daily activities of the Ceremonial Guard. Amazing. Marching each day and inspecting the troops at the Changing of the Guard ceremony on Parliament Hill, Ottawaâ€™s most prominent summertime tourist attraction. Awesome. Being a part of a military drill tradition which exists only in Britain and Canada and is closely tied to the countryâ€™s monarchist heritage. Priceless.
This is what this summer involves for Warrant Officer Anthony Jones of Stittsville as he manages the daily changing of the Guard ceremony as well as the other daily activities of the Ceremonial Guard â€“ Sentries at the Residence of His Excellency the Governor General and Sentries at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. It can also involve interments at the Beechwood National Cemetery and other drill tasks in the nationâ€™s capital during the summer, such as mounting a Guard of Honour for a visiting dignitary.
Special to the News News - A plaque to commemorate the site of the Holiness Movement and Free Methodist Campgrounds and the Mapledene Youth Camp will be unveiled on Saturday, Aug. 17. The 2 p.m. unveiling will take place on the east side of the Stittsville soccer field at Alexander Grove. This is the latest project by the Goulbourn Township Historical Society to identify historical buildings, events and landmarks in Stittsville and Goulbourn. Everyone is welcome to attend this unveiling. There will be a display of historic photos of the former Holiness Movement and subsequent Free Methodist Campgrounds as well as the Mapledene Youth Camp which located at the site in 1948. Light refreshments will also be provided at the event. There will be lots of parking available at the parking lot of the nearby Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena. Thousands of visitors came to Stittsville between the years of 1898 and 1974 because of the presence of these religious campgrounds. There were even family cottages erected at the site, which also featured over the years a dining hall and a house of worship. The camp meetings began with worship services held in large tents which eventually gave way to the more permanent structures. The campgrounds stretched from Manchester Street in the south to Poole Creek in the north. It was in 1959 that the Holiness Movement Church and the Free Methodist Church merged, bringing even more people to what were then called the Free Methodist Campgrounds in Stittsville. The idea to erect a plaque to commemorate these religious campgrounds in Stittsville was made by Lillian Hobbs of Munster at the Historical Societyâ€™s annual general meeting last January. Since then, much effort has gone into researching the history of the campgrounds and recording the names of those who attended the summer religious meetings at the site. This will all come to a climax on Saturday, Aug. 17 at 2 p.m. with the unveiling of this new plaque at the site.

I was referred to Shane when I had made the decision to sell my home. Not only did he respond immediately to my request but he also explained exactly what he would do to get my home sold quickly. I cannot say enough about the excellent level of service that was provided by both Shane and Courtney. The process of selling can be extremely stressful but they were there to help me through it and were always available to answer my questions or concerns. I would not hesitate in recommending them to any other family or friends!

Warrant Officer Anthony Jones with Ceremonial Guard Continued from page 1
This is Warrant Officer Jones’ second and last year with the Ceremonial Guard as he has a posting to Base Petawawa coming up, a posting that will allow him to continue advancing in his military career. He will, though, continue to live in Stittsville, coming home on weekends. His wife also works for the Department of National Defence, being posted to Ottawa in 2011. Warrant Officer Jones’ duties with the Ceremonial Guard have allowed them to be together in the same location. Warrant Officer Jones’ military career goes back to 1986 when he joined as a Reservist when he was going to college in Montreal. He transferred to the regular forces in 1998, ending up with the 1st Battalion, The Royal Canadian Regiment, in Petawawa. Over the years, he has taught numerous leadership courses and was posted to Toronto as an advisor to the Army Cadet program. He has been on exchange with the Royal Green Jackets in the United Kingdom. He has also been on four operational tours – one to Kosovo and three to Afghanistan. On his last tour of duty in Afghanistan, he was wounded in an ambush while on a patrol. This summer Warrant Officer Jones will be involved with the Changing of the Guard ceremony on Parliament Hill every day. Most of these days will see him on parade with the scarlet-uniformed Ceremonial Guard, wearing that distinctive bearskin headdress just like all of the troops. As Warrant Officer, he is the one who inspects the troops in the ceremony, moving slowly along in front of the troops, particularly noting the shine on their boots but also observing other aspects of their appearance. On those days on which he is not on parade on Parliament
Hill, he will be back at his office at the summertime headquarters of the Ceremonial Guard at Carleton University doing paperwork, planning and coordinating. Warrant Officer Jones considers being part of the Ceremonial Guard a unique honour, not only because of the Changing of the Guard ceremony with its symbolic ties to the monarchy but also because the duty involves the posting of sentries at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. This duty and honour was confined at one time to very few in the military because it was only done on Remembrance Day. Now, with the Ceremonial Guard doing it daily all through the summer, more troops can take part in this honoured task. That’s why the Ceremonial Guard now includes personnel from the Royal Canadian Air Force, the Royal Canadian Navy and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police so that these sections of the military can participate in sentry duty at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The Ceremonial Guard, though, for the most part involves troops from numerous different military units from across the country. In fact, this year there are troops in the Ceremonial Guard from 39 different military units. Indeed, Warrant Officer Jones admits that one of his most difficult functions as the Warrant Officer of the Ceremonial Guard is remembering the names of the 243 troops in his charge. But he is confident that he will know them all or at least be pretty close to it by the end of the summer. His role also includes coordinating what he terms “all the moving parts” involved with the duties of the Ceremonial Guard. One of the challenges is make the troops familiar with the drill used in the Changing of the Guard ceremony since it is not one that
is commonly used in regular military duties. For Warrant Officer Jones, this is a difficult and challenging aspect of his job but he also finds it very rewarding. He points out that perhaps contrary to common knowledge, many of those in the Ceremonial Guard are members of the regular Canadian Forces – not all are student Reservists. This summer, for example, 102 of the 243 troops in the Ceremonial Guard are members of the Regular Forces, with many having seen duty in Afghanistan. Many of the Reservists return to Ceremonial Guard duty year after year. However, Regular Force members rarely return due to other postings and operational commitments. While the first Changing of the Guard ceremony on Parliament Hill this year only happened on Monday, June 24, it was preceded by an intensive three weeks of drill training for the troops which culminated in an inspection by His Excellency the Governor General David Johnston at Rideau Hall. This inspection ceremony signifies that the Ceremonial Guard is ready to spend the summer performing the Changing of the Guard ceremony on Parliament Hill and performing sentry duty at Rideau Hall and at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. At this inspection, Warrant Officer Jones did get to meet the Governor General, calling him “a remarkable man.” The Ceremonial Guard uses real rifles, just like those used in war zones like Afghanistan, in its summertime duties in the Nation’s Capital. In addition, the soldiers’ bayonets are real. Indeed, one of the medical situations faced by the Ceremonial Guard, in addition to a soldier fainting from the heat while on Parliament Hill, is a soldier getting nicked and cut by a bayonet due to the tight conditions in which some of
Warrant Officer Anthony Jones of Stittsville holds the bearskin headdress which he wears when he participates in the Ceremonial Guard’s Changing of the Guard ceremony on Parliament Hill. the drill is performed. The Changing of the Guard ceremony is held daily throughout the summer, except for days when it is pouring rain. The troops assemble at 8 a.m. in a parking lot at Carleton University where they live in the student residence rooms. Some drilling could take place at this time depending on whether some tweaking of the performance needs to happen. Just after 9 a.m., the Ceremonial Guard troops depart by bus for the Cartier Drill Hall beside Ottawa city hall, arriving there by 9:20 a.m. From there, they march to Parliament Hill for the 10 a.m. Changing of the Guard ceremony which will happen daily through to Saturday, Aug. 24 this year. Even the march to Parliament Hill has a unique aspect to it. Because it is such a long march, the soldiers are not ex-
pected to hold the rifle with the same arm for the whole trek. So, arms are switched along the route but this is done in a performance way, happening in time with the music played by the accompanying Band of the Ceremonial Guard. Warrant Officer Jones says that his responsibility with the Ceremonial Guard to implement the overall plan for the troops as devised by the Guard’s officers. He admits that someone is always tasked to watch the Changing of the Guard ceremony to ensure that the Guard’s performance standards are being met. If the performance is not up to standard, the troops can find themselves doing additional drill training upon their return to Carleton University that day. Warrant Officer Jones admits that he is the one who applies such additional training and discipline.
“I’m the whipper snapper,” he says in reference to this role as the Ceremonial Guard’s disciplinarian. On most days, when the troops return to Carleton University after the Changing of the Guard ceremony, they undergo military training of some sort such as for first aid. The Changing of the Guard ceremony is Ottawa’s most recognized military tradition, highlighting pageantry, precision and colour. The Band of the Ceremonial Guard is the largest band in the Canadian Forces. The Ceremonial Guard is a Canadian Army unit of over 400 Regular and Reserve soldiers which includes the Band of the Ceremonial Guard and the Pipes and Drums of the Ceremonial Guard. The first Changing of the Guard ceremony took place on Parliament Hill on July 2, 1959, carried out by the Regiment of Canadian Guards, a Regular Force regiment of the Canadian Armed Forces. The Public Duties Detachment was later manned by two Reserve Guards Regiments, namely the Governor General’s Food Guards from Ottawa and the Canadian Grenadier Guards from Montreal. The Ceremonial Guard today is comprised of soldiers and reservists from units across Canada who adopt the customs and traditions of these two historic Guards Regiments. The Ceremonial Guard, which is a unit of the Canadian Forces, is comprised of three companies: a Band company, a Public Duties company of which Warrant Officer Jones is the Company Sergeant Major, and a Headquarters company supporting the other two companies. All personnel in the Ceremonial Guard, including band members, are trained soldiers, meaning that they have all completed the military’s basic training.

Teams, donors wanted for Stittsville Kidney Walk News - It’s a Kidney Walk that takes place in Stittsville on Sunday, Sept. 8 but now is the time to plan your involvement. Whether it is to take part as a participant in the stroll along Stittsville Main Street that day or creating a team to participate in the Walk or donating online or being there to cheer others on or perhaps bringing the kids or grandchildren out for the Walk’s associated Funday Sunday activities, it is not too early to begin sifting through these choices and selecting the one that appeals to you the most. The big push right now for the organizers at the Stittsville United Church is to ﬁnd more people willing to create teams to participate in the Walk and raise funds for the battle against kidney disease. Indeed, for this year’s second annual Kidney Walk, the fundraising goal has been increased. That’s because last year’s inaugural walk exceeded its goal of $10,000. So, this year the goal has been set higher at $15,000. This means there is a need for more par-
ticipants, more sponsors and more donors. The organizing team headed by Elizabeth Hochster-Hurst, herself a kidney transplant recipient, and Ruth Richardson is hoping to have twice as many walkers out for this year’s Walk compared to last year’s successful ﬁrst-ever Kidney Walk in Stittsville. So, consider getting together with neighbours or friends or work colleagues or club members and turn out for this year’s Kidney Walk. The Walk will again start at 11 a.m. at the church steps of Stittsville United Church on Fernbank Road and then proceed along Stittsville Main Street to Papa Sam’s at Beverly Street which will be the turning around point. Then it’s back to the church. At the church, there will be Funday Sunday activities including a BBQ sponsored by Stittsville Sobeys, two hours of entertainment by local jazz band Fonograph and children’s activities like an inﬂatable obstacle course and a bouncy castle. Participants in the Walk will receive blue t-shirts showing support for people with kidney disease. The Walk along
Stittsville Main Street will be like a “sea of blue” washing along the street. Stittsville has a number of kidney patients struggling with kidney disease as well as transplant donors and recipients who wish to give back. That’s why the Kidney Walk was started last year and continues this year. Among those involved this year are Mary Anne Graham and her husband Bill who live in Stittsville. Mary Anne gave Bill one of her kidneys and so they are big supporters of organ donations. Laptop computers will be set up on the day of the Walk so that people can sign up online to donate their organs after death if they so wish. One in ten Canadians suffers from kidney disease while many others are at risk. Nearly 10,000 Ontarians depend on dialysis treatments while over 1,000 people in Ontario are waiting for a kidney transplant. In addition, many others live with reduced kidney function. The Kidney Foundation works to improve the lives of people affected by kidney disease through supporting research, advocating with gov-
ernment, peer support, education and programs. Kidney Walks are taking place in more than 40 communities across the province this year including here in Stittsville.
For more information about the Kidney Walk coming up in Stittsville on Sunday, Sept. 8, please contact Elizabeth Hochester-Hurst at 613-8366847, Ruth Richardson at 613836-8735 or Craig Dunbar, a
Stittsville resident and kidney disease patient who works for the Kidney Foundation at 1613-724-9953, ext. 4562. Registration can be done online right now at www.kidneywalk.ca.

FIRE HYDRANTS: TESTING FOR YOUR SAFETY
How much driveway is just right? Tell us what you think!
This summer, as in past years, the City of Ottawa will be testing municipal ﬁre hydrants on various streets throughout your community. Fire hydrant testing may result in temporary inconveniences, such as poor water pressure and brown or rust-coloured water. It is important to note that temporarily discoloured City water is not harmful to your health. This ongoing maintenance procedure ensures that our hydrants are ready, should Fire Services require their use.
City Planning staff are working on an amendment to the Zoning By-law that will make it easier to build a wider driveway in existing communities outside the Greenbelt. The study on Residential Driveway and Parking Regulations in Outer Suburban Neighbourhoods will explore options to allow property owners to enjoy the convenience of side-by-side parking.
Over the next few weeks, the City will be testing ﬁre hydrants in the following neighbourhoods:
You have an opportunity to complete a short survey on the City of Ottawa’s website. The survey will illustrate what the current rules allow and several alternative options.

Local acts make Bluesfest great
ttawa is spoiled for festivals each summer. Dragon Boats hit the waters of Mooneyâ€™s Bay. Jazz drifts through down-
town. Countless other events draw people each weekend, with Canada Day leading the way. On LeBreton Flats, blues â€“ and an amalgam of other sounds â€“ draws thousands of Ottawans and visitors to this city. Weâ€™re lucky to live in a city that hosts the second largest blues festival in North America (Chicago holds top spot). While the headline acts at Bluesfest garner the most attention, itâ€™s local acts that make up the majority of the entertainment. They may play earlier in the day than B.B. King or the Tragically Hip, but every one of the local musicians is really what makes Bluesfest work. Without the input of Ottawa artists, Bluesfest couldnâ€™t fill multiple stages for the festivalâ€™s 10 days. The payoffs from this commitment to the local community are immeasurable. Not only does Ottawa get an economic boost as thousands of visitors arrive to take in the shows, the
local musicians get a chance to share their material with large crowds of music fans. For the Ottawa entertainers, thereâ€™s the added bonus of getting to open a stage for national and international stars they might never have the chance to meet at any other time. The RBC Ottawa Bluesfest always draws a few grumbles for straying from its blues roots, but the crowds that arrive each year suggest the lineups meet with mass approval. The growing list of genres that can be heard each year also means more and more local acts can try to snag an invitation to play. And every note â€“ in some way â€“ can be traced back to the blues, because itâ€™s the root of almost every North American musical style. And because Bluesfest draws such large crowds, ticket prices can often be much more affordable than an arena show by one headlining act. Once you have a ticket for that famous act, youâ€™re also able to arrive earlier or stay later to take in everything the music fest has to offer. Including all those local acts. If youâ€™ve never spent a lazy Saturday or Sunday wandering between six musical stages, taking in unknown acts and finding real gems, youâ€™ve been missing out. Grab your lawn chair and sunscreen. And have fun right here in Ottawa.
Weâ€™ll miss having our own man in Toronto
oo bad Dalton McGuinty had to leave politics in such an awkward way because he actually was a pretty good premier until things started to go a bit weird toward the end. It would be an exaggeration to say he will be impossible to replace, because his replacement seems to be doing all right so far. But in one respect, Kathleen Wynne cannot replace McGuinty. She is not from Ottawa. McGuinty is. That meant that for the 10 years McGuinty was premier we had a premier who knew that Ottawa existed. Knowing that Ottawa exists is not as easy as you might think. The government of Ontario resides in Toronto and Toronto is a needy place. Amplified by Torontoâ€™s rather noisy media, the cityâ€™s needs are all too evident. To remember that Ottawa exists, it helps to be from here and come back on weekends. On those visits, a premier can leave behind Torontoâ€™s traffic, its urban sprawl, its overcrowded schools and understaffed hospitals and notice our traffic, our urban sprawl, our overcrowded schools and our understaffed hospitals. No matter what is going on in the 416, the premier will be reminded of the Queensway,

Born and raised in Ottawa, McGuinty couldnâ€™t help but be aware of such things. Wynne is from Toronto. This doesnâ€™t necessarily mean that she thinks all problems can be solved with latte.

Lately she has been musing about improving the provincial governmentâ€™s relationship with the city. â€œIâ€™ve prided myself and ourselves on being able to rebuild that relationship,â€? Wynne said, as reported by the Globe and Mail. â€œIt pains me that itâ€™s not as good as it maybe has been, and I hope that weâ€™ll be able to rebuild those relationships.â€? This can hardly be seen as good news. Torontoâ€™s municipal leadership being what it is, rebuilding those relationships is going to take most of the time the premier has available. It is also going to take a lot of money, given the rather expensive list of things Toronto needs â€“ such as subways. And while that is going on, the rebuilding process with Toronto, what happens to Carling Avenue and the Queensway and OC Transpo? Not to mention light rail, which it sometimes seems we will never get. Would it help if Ottawa had a more colourful mayor? Not meaning any disrespect to Jim Watson, but his demeanour does not demand attention, it does not cry out to the provincial government that if Ottawa does not get what
it wants he will hold his breath until it does. Other Ontario cities have mayors that. So maybe Watson needs to develop a few rough edges, become colourful, learn how not to keep his temper in check. As soon as he does that, he becomes a problem and a problem needs to be solved. Right now, Watson is not a problem for Queenâ€™s Park. That was OK when an Ottawa guy was premier. But now, Watson not being a problem means Ottawa is not a priority. Can Jim Watson learn how to become a problem? Maybe. You should never underestimate a politician.

Parliamentary artwork Special to the News
News - One of Canadaâ€™s most iconic buildings is the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa. And itâ€™s a focus on Canada Day with thousands attending the activities there. And so, when Stittsvilleâ€™s ELEMENOPAINT, which guides both children and adults in creative and artistic adventures, hosted a recent special family art night to celebrate Canada Day, what better subject matter for their artwork than the Parliament Buildings. So the youngsters, with the help of their parents, created fun versions of Parliament Hill and the Parliament Buildings, while at the same time learning about Confederation, the first prime minister Sir John A. Macdonald and all about the Centre Block of the Parliament Buildings and even the Centennial Flame. The youngsters, ranging in age from 3 Â˝ years to about 9 years old, produced an array of priceless artwork, all just in time for Canada Day.
Finnley Pignat holds her painting of the Parliament Buildings which she created at ELEMENOPAINTâ€™S family art night celebrating the upcoming Canada Day and which she is giving to her grandfather. Young Bret Hazelwood, shows off his painting of the Parliament Buildings which he did at ELEMENOPA I N T â€™ S special family art night celebrating Canada Day.

Kanata’s Newest Chiropractors Kanata’s Family Chiropractic Centre has a long history of excellence in chiropractic care, with over 25 years worth of experience in treating local families. Established in 1987 by Drs. David Lovsin and Andrea Fefferman, F.C.C. quickly established its presence within the community and it continues to be committed to helping patients and their families achieve their maximum health potential. If you’ve visited the ofﬁce in recent months you will not only have noticed a new look, but you will have also been introduced to some new faces - Drs. Lauren and Rodrigo Guerrero, who are both chiropractors, have recently joined the practice and are a welcome addition to the team at F.C.C. With the addition of Dr. Lauren and Dr. Rod, the clinic now has extended coverage spanning six days a week, making it even easier for you or a loved one to receive excellent care in times of need. Nestled within the heart of Kanata at the Kanata Medical Arts Building (99 Kakulu Rd.), the Family Chiropractic Centre conveniently offers chiropractic as well as registered massage therapy.

New Beginnings at F.C.C. As a three-year-old, donning a permanent smile and pigtails in her hair, little Lauren Burkett never would have imagined one day becoming a chiropractor and joining the practice of her mentors, Drs. Andrea Fefferman and Keith Mahoney. But after seeing just how chiropractic could help her to lead an active life, Lauren knew from an early age that she was meant to be a chiropractor.
Dr. David Lovsin, Dr. Lauren Guerrero, Dr. Rodrigo Guerrero
Although she doesn’t remember her ﬁrst chiropractic adjustment, Dr. Lauren Guerrero fondly remembers the woman who not so subtly inspired her to become a chiropractor - Dr. Andrea Fefferman, who sadly succumbed after a long battle with ovarian cancer in October 2012. Andrea’s husband, Dr. Keith Mahoney entrusted his practice to Lauren in February, and since then she has continued in the legacy of her predecessors, providing excellent chiropractic care to local families. She and her Australian husband, Dr. Rodrigo Guerrero, met in Dallas at an international chiropractic conference and they maintained a very long distance relationship until June 2012, when they reunited in Australia. While there, Lauren and Rod welcomed their now nine month-old son before making the long journey back to Canada in January 2013. Going from +40°C to -40°C was certainly a shock to the couple’s system, particularly Dr. Rod who had never experienced those temperatures, but they have since acclimatized and are going strong as
Dr. Rod Dr. Lauren and their son Hayden
the Family Chiropractic Centre’s newest power couple. Dr. Lauren and Dr. Rod are very excited to be joining Dr. David Lovsin and the experienced team at F.C.C. and look forward to the potential of inspiring the next generation of patients and future chiropractors to achieving better health and wellness through chiropractic.

Four concerts coming up this August Special to the News
News - The free concerts at Village Square Park in Stittsville this summer have been reduced to two rather than the three as in recent years. These concerts are sponsored by Waste Management in cooperation with Rural West Recreation of the city of Ottawa. But while there will only be two
concerts at Village Square Park this coming August, there will be two new Thursday evening concerts at the Richmond Fairgrounds in nearby Richmond, a short drive away. This means that there will be four straight free Thursday evening concerts in Goulbourn this year. On Thursday, Aug. 1, the group Blackwell, a country music trio
comprised of Carey Blackwell, his brother Danny Blackwell and singer/ songwriter Braiden Turner, will be performing at the Richmond fairgrounds in Richmond, starting at 7 p.m. Blackwell performs a blend of country rock along with pop and haunting ballads. This performance by Blackwell will be followed the next Thursday,
Aug. 8 by the Heartbeats, an Ottawa area rock â€˜n roll show band that specializes in the songs of the 1950â€™s and 1960â€™s. After these concerts on Thursday, Aug. 1 and Thursday, Aug. 8 at the Richmond fairgrounds, the scene will shift to Village Square Park in Stittsville where there will be free concerts on Thursday, Aug. 15 and Thursday, Aug. 22. The Aug. 15 concert will feature Sidewinder while the Mick Armitage
Band, which has performed previously at these Village Square Park concerts, will be featured at the Aug. 22 concert. While the concerts will run from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., there will be a cash only BBQ held before the concerts, starting at 6 p.m. at each site. All funds raised by these BBQâ€™s will go to support local youth initiatives. In addition, as has been the case in the past, donations for CHEO will be accepted at the concerts.

Childcare Centre donates $1,000 to Cancer Society John.email@example.com
that every year it would hold a fundraising BBQ for the Ca-
News - Cancer has impacted those at the Stittsville Childcare Centre in Stittsville. Thatâ€™s why again this year, for the sixth straight year, the Childcare Centre at the corner of Manchester Street and Stittsville Main Street held a fundraiser BBQ for the Canadian Cancer Society. It was held on Friday evening, June 14 and included a BBQ, face painting, a fish pond and a childrenâ€™s play area. Stittsville firefighters were there as well with a fire vehicle. This yearâ€™s fundraiser BBQ has resulted in the Stittsville Childcare Centre being able to hand over $1,000 to the Canadian Cancer Society to help fight cancer. Every year that the fundraiser BBQ has been held has seen the Childcare Centre raise about this amount. It all began back in Aug. 2007 when Mrs. Jane Whyte, a parent whose two sons attended â€“ and still attend - the Stittsville Childcare Centre, passed away from cancer. The Childcare Centre sent a donation to the Cancer Society in her memory and then decided
Showing that the Stittsville Childcare Centre raised $1,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society at its recent family BBQ fundraiser are, from left to right, Nicole Cheeseman of the Stittsville Childcare Centre; parent Bill Noel with his children William, left, and Lila, right; Hilary Brook of the Stittsville Childcare Centre who helped with organizing the event, with youngster Megan Xu in front of her; Nahid Farahani of the Stittsville Childcare Centre; parent and cancer survivor Mrs. Tracy Power; and Pouran Asgari, director of the Stittsville Childcare Centre who is with youngster Sofia Galdamez.
nadian Cancer Society. This is what has happened
and over the ensuing years, more parents have been im-
pacted by cancer. Mrs. Gwen Foss, a mother
of two who used to bring one of her children to the Stittsville Childcare Centre, passed away from cancer in Sept. 2010. Mrs. Roxanne Noel, a mother of two children who both attend the Stittsville Childcare Centre, passed away last November following a lengthy battle with cancer. Her two children, Lila and William, still attend the Childcare Centre. Another parent, Mrs. Tracy Power, a mother of two, has also battled cancer and is now a cancer survivor, having been declared cancer free last year. David Lamont, another parent, was a cancer patient but is now cancer free and has recently started working again. It is to honour these parents who have battled cancer, with some losing the battle and others winning the battle, that has been the inspiration and motivation for the Stittsville Childcare Centre to continue holding its annual fundraiser BBQ to support the Canadian Cancer Society and its work. The Childcare Centre plans to continue to hold the event annually to honour these people and to keep the memories alive of those who passed away.

CARLETON PLACE & DISTRICT MEMORIAL HOSPITAL Patient-Centred, Quality Driven
his has been a remarkable year for the hospital. The clinical teams worked together to improve patient care through the adoption of key clinical protocols. We met or exceeded all of our performance targets for Quality and the hospital was recognized as an “exemplary” hospital by Accreditation Canada.
AT CPDMH WE
In our quest for service improvement, we identified a need for a more functional, robust surgical program. Throughout the year, we have worked with surgeons to strengthen this essential program. We continued to focus our efforts on how to provide better service to our patients by recruiting more physicians. Over the past year, we have recruited two more emergency physicians to our team: a lung specialist and an ear, nose and throat surgeon. The hospital continues to be a training center for residents and medical students and we hosted several first year students from both Queen’s and the University of Ottawa this year. We worked with hospitals in the region to change how we credential our physicians to ensure timely access to quality medical resources. Together with our partners, Almonte and Arnprior hospitals, we are exploring shared medical resources to make sure our communities have
CPDMH scoring in the top 10% on overall Employee Engagement relative to hospital benchmarks. Specific results show a commitment on the part of staff to patients and the organization, with 97% saying they are proud to tell people they work for the hospital, 96% saying client satisfaction is a primary focus and 100% saying they are committed to doing high quality work. The inaugural Community Health Fest held on March 23rd in the Arena Hall in Carleton Place was a huge success. At full capacity with over 35 participants showcasing local health resources and estimates from 800 to 1,000 people in attendance; guests from across Carleton Place and the surrounding communities enjoyed free services while learning more about the range of health care services in Carleton Place. This initiative served to connect the community to quality services close to home.
access to specialist care. All of our recruitment and training efforts ensure that our patients get the right care at the right time closer to home. Technology continues to play a critical role in delivery quality care. We continue to invest in the adoption of an Electronic Health Record to ensure the safe and timely transfer of patient information between CPDMH and other community providers.
We are pleased to report that we have met our commitment to our ongoing capital plan. Working together with the Foundation and Auxiliary, the Hospital invested almost $800,000 to maintain a safe facility, upgrade our electronic information system and procure modern, medical equipment for patient care. We are further pleased to report that we have submitted a balanced budget for 2013/14. The Hospital will continue to provide quality services while maintaining an enviable, efficiency record.
The National Research Corporation (NRC Picker), a National Research Institute that measures patient experience, ranked CPDMH among the top performers in patient satisfaction in Emergency Department satisfaction. This success is attributed to our staff and physicians who daily demonstrate their commitment to creating an organization where patients and their families can experience responsive, innovative and exemplary care. An Employee Engagement Survey was completed this year. Overall results were excellent with R0012180751/0627

Water floods pumpkin fields John Curry firstname.lastname@example.org
News - Water, usually a farmer’s friend, has become an enemy at Saunders Farm in Munster this year. Much of the farm’s ten acres of pumpkin crop was under water last week as a result of torrential downpours through the week – two inches of rain in half an hour on Wednesday, June 26; one inch of rain a couple of days before that; and rain again on Friday, June 28. Three of ﬁve ﬁelds were largely covered with water. This was the ﬁrst time in the 37 year history of Saunders Farm that these farm ﬁelds were so covered in water this late in the year. There had been a couple of occasions of such ﬂooding in the early spring but never after crops had been planted. While a drainage ditch was slowly taking away water from the three ﬁelds which were inundated with standing water, there was just so much water that all it could do was pond on the ﬁelds, covering up many of the pumpkin plants which had really been doing well before the rains came. Pumping the water out of the ﬁelds was not an option since the water would have to be pumped at least a mile away to provide any relief. And using heavy equipment to dig a larger drainage ditch would only serve to damage the landscape and its already water-soaked, muddy conditions. Only the arrival of warm, sunny weather to help evaporate the standing water will ease the situation.
are an important aspect of the Farm’s operation and its Haunting Season program. The majority of the farm, especially its agritourism area which features numerous attractions for visitors, has not been impacted by ﬂooding of any kind. It is only the pumpkin ﬁelds at the lower end of the farm which have been adversely affected by ﬂooding. The only exception was the new kitchen which is now under construction and in fact just about ﬁnished at Saunders Farm. A trench had been dug from a propane tank to the new kitchen for installation of a propane line to serve the facility. The ditch was open when the heavy
rain hit on Wednesday, June 26, ﬁlling up the ditch and, with ﬁnal grading of the area not yet done, ﬂooding into the new kitchen area. But this was only a temporary thing and ﬁnishing work is continuing on the new kitchen. Mr. Saunders says that he has received lots of messages of support from others during this ﬂooding situation. He said that there are lots of people who are doing sun dances for Saunders Farm, hoping to bring on good weather. Mr. Saunders notes that two years ago, perfect growing conditions prevailed for pumpkins. But this year is a different story and that is the challenge of farming.
The ﬁelds suffering from ﬂooding are tile drained but the high water table caused by all of the rain has meant that the tile drains just cannot move out the water. And just how damaging these ﬂooded conditions will be remains to be seen. Mark Saunders of Saunders Farm says that experts report that plants will not survive if they are under water for 48 hours since the water cuts off the oxygen to their roots, something which is essential. This has been the case at Saunders Farm but Mr. Saunders does add that even the experts are not totally sure what will happen. He himself has not yet been able to get a close up look at the ﬂooded plants because of the wet, ﬂooded, muddy conditions in the ﬁelds affected. There is no crop insurance on this pumpkin crop but Mr. Saunders is conﬁdent that Saunders Farm, which handles thousands of pumpkins during its Haunting Season in October, will have all the pumpkins that it needs this fall. He says that he and other farmers in the area are always either buying or selling pumpkins to each other and this will continue this year, with other farmers in the area not as impacted by rain-induced ﬂooding like Saunders Farm is this year. He is also conﬁdent because he knows farmers across North America from his involvement with farm tourism organizations and he says that he will bring pumpkins in from afar if he absolutely has to. Mr. Saunders points out that this is why Saunders Farm has diversiﬁed over the years, starting 37 years ago as a strawberry farm and slowly evolving into a major agri-tourism atJOHN CURRY/METROLAND traction. Growing pumpkins is only a portion of Mark Saunders of Saunders Farm in Munster stands with a flooded pumpkin field behind what happens at Saunders Farm, Mr. Saunders him. Three of the Farm’s five pumpkin fields were flooded due to several rain downpours says, while admitting, though, that pumpkins in the Munster area last week.

EMERALD ASH BORER - COMING TO AN ASH TREE NEAR YOU This little beetle is a highly destructive insect native to the Asian Continent. It was discovered in the Windsor/ Detroit corridor in 2002. It has since destroyed millions of trees. It was discovered in the City of Ottawa in 2008. Since that time the City of Ottawa, Leeds and Grenville have been quarantined and the movement of ash wood and wood products is prohibited. The City of Ottawa removed 800 affected trees in the winter of 2011. The handling of ash trees that have been affected by emerald ash borer can take special techniques. Gardiner Tree Trimming & Removal Ltd. strives to use the safest methods possible to remove dead and dangerous trees of all species. Our methods use equipment such as a crane, bucket or excavator as the job requires. Gardiner Tree Trimming & Removal Ltd. offers TreeAzin® Systemic Insecticide. It is an injectable insecticide formulated with azadirachtin, an extract of neem tree seeds (not neem oil). TreeAzin is registered by Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) (PCP 30559). Ontario’s Ministry of the Environment (MOE) scheduled TreeAzin® as a class 4 pesticide or “least hazardous that is
commercial”, with a class 11 active ingredient. TreeAzin is exempt from Ontario’s Cosmetic Pesticide Ban Act.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR: EAB is a slender, elongate insect about 1/3 - 1/2 inch long. It is widest just behind the head, gradually tapering back to the abdomen. It is a bright iridescent green to copper-green color, often with a copper colored area behind the head. Its body underneath the wings is a purplish-magenta color. Trees typically are killed in two to four years. When trees are ﬁrst attacked by EABs, the symptoms are inconspicuous and hard to notice. By the end of the second year, thinning foliage and dieback in the crown begins to be
apparent. By the third year, there is severe dieback and little foliage. Ash can tolerate small numbers of EAB larvae but trees are girdled and killed when populations become more numerous. When the adults emerge, they create small, 1/8 inch D-shaped exit holes that are characteristic of this insect, although they can be hard to see. If you were to remove the bark on the trunk of a tree showing these symptoms, you should also ﬁnd the larval galleries. Woodpecker attacks on ash could also indicate the presence of emerald ash borers.
Stittsville News EMC - Thursday, July 4, 2013 19
NEWS I hope everyone had a great Canada Day weekend and let’s hope the rest of the summer is a little less wet than June was. According to farmzone.com, the average rainfall in Ottawa in June is 85mm whereas we received nearly 130mm of precipitation in June of this year. For our local farmers and for the enjoyment of summer, hopefully we’ll have a much better July and August. While summer is ofﬁcially upon us, there is still some work to do at City Council in the coming weeks including a vote on the plan for LRT between Tunney’s Pasture and Baseline Station and another vote concerning a casino in Ottawa. I’d like to take this opportunity to discuss the upcoming vote on the casino issue that will come before the Finance & Economic Development Committee (FEDCO) on Tuesday, July 9th and rise to full Council on Wednesday, July 17th. For those new to the issue, Council ﬁrst considered whether or not Ottawa was to be a willing host to a new or expanded casino in October 2012. This was due to the Modernization Plan put forward by the Ontario Lottery & Gaming Corporation (OLG) that suggested new locations for casinos throughout Ontario. Council voted 19-5 in favour of being a willing host, sending the message to the OLG that Ottawa should be considered for a new casino. At that time, and with the support of residents throughout Rideau-Goulbourn, I voted against the idea as I felt the only desire of the OLG was a downtown casino and this would come at the cost of the existing Rideau-Carleton Raceway (RCR). RCR is an integral part of our rural communities and its potential closure would result in the loss of nearly 1000 jobs, which, in my mind, would be completely unacceptable. My opposition was not against the idea of expanding gaming, but against the potential loss of the RCR. I was always of the mind that if we expand gaming in Ottawa or if we build a new casino in Ottawa, that it should be on the same grounds at RCR. This brings to us to a motion before FEDCO on July 9th, put forward by Mayor Jim Watson, which states “that the Ontario Lottery & Gaming Corporation be informed, prior to the start of the RFP process, that the only location acceptable to the City of Ottawa for an expanded gaming facility is the current location at the Rideau Carleton Raceway.” This is a welcome change in direction from the support of a downtown casino that responds directly to the overwhelming support of RCR from the residents of Ottawa. From October until today, I have consistently heard from residents across the City, either via email or in person, if we are to see a new or expanded casino that it should be at RCR. In recent weeks, we’ve seen one individual come forward and suggest that he should be allowed to bid on a casino for him to build on land that he currently owns. However, at no point in the last eight months have we heard from residents of Kanata/Stittsville, or any other community for that matter, indicating that they want a new casino in their community. A new casino in a community like Kanata/Stittsville would decimate existing restaurant and hotel businesses and create a gambling environment in a community where that environment does not currently exist. Without the support of the people that actually live in the community, I would not support the construction of a new casino in it and nor should the elected ofﬁcials that represent that community.

Shakespeare at Alexander Grove Special to the News
News - Can’t get away to the Shakespearean Festival in Stratford this summer? Well, you can still get to enjoy a little bit of Shakespeare right here in Stittsville as Ottawa’s own professional Shakespeare company “A Company of Fools” will be at Alexander Grove Park to present “The Merry Wives of Windsor.” This Alexander Grove performance is the Stittsville stop in the “A Company of Fools” annual Torchlight Shakespeare series this year, a series which begins on July 3 and runs through to Aug. 17 at various parks around the city of Ottawa. Presenting the show in different parks around the city gives residents throughout the city including here in Stittsville an opportunity to experience an outdoor Shakespeare production done by a troupe of six
professional actors. These Torchlight Shakespeare shows are open to everyone and are based on “passthe-hat” donations rather than any admission charge. This makes the show available to everyone. The Stittsville presentation of “The Merry Wives of Windsor” will take place on Saturday, July 13 at 7 p.m. at Alexander Grove Park which is where the “A Company of Fools” has performed in previously as well. Those attending are reminded to take along a lawn chair or blanket to sit on as well as bug spray. This year’s show, “The Merry Wives of Windsor,” promises to be a rollocking good time. It revolves around Falstaff, a rogue with a penchant for drink, women and mischief, arriving in the small town of Windsor.
Underestimating the intellect of the middle class, he attempts to woo two married ladies at the same time, not realizing for a second that they are onto him and his antics. The wives of Windsor use and abuse Falstaff for their own amusement, giving him lessons in matters of the heart. “A Company of Fools,” a professional Shakespeare company, was established in 1990 by a group of students in the University of Ottawa’s theatre department, with the troupe modeling itself after the rogue Elizabethan players who once entertained audiences out of doors as well as at London’s Globe Theatre. The annual Torchlight Shakespeare series, which has become the signature happening for “A Company of Fools,” began in 2003. The aim of “A Company of Fools” is to make Shakespeare theatre accessible and fun for audiences of all ages.
Farewell ceremony at Stittsville Public School Special to the News
News - Stittsville Public School said a formal farewell to its grade six students as they move on to other schools at a ceremony at the school on Friday, June 21. A highlight of the ceremony was the presentation of the Principal’s Award to two students – Robert Middleton for the school’s French program and Junhee Park for the school’s English program. The ceremony also included a time for looking back and sharing memories. Students from each grade six class shared their favourite school memories. These memories were also tweaked thanks to a
slide show created by Kyle Anderson and Robert Middleton. All of the students leaving were formally presented with certificates. Following the formal ceremony, the students, their parents and guests enjoyed a cake and punch reception in the school gymnasium. The refreshments served at the reception, the photos presented to the students and the decorations which adorned the gymnasium were all thanks to the Stittsville Public School Farewell Parent Committee.
Rideau Carleton Raceway was established long before any new developments have encroached upon it and a considerable buffer still exists between Findlay Creek and their site on Albion Road. It is the logical choice for an expanded casino operation and I am happy to support our call to the OLG that this be the only location considered. I strongly encourage my colleagues on Council to do the same. I look forward to this vote and I want to thank all of you for the support you have shown for Rideau Carleton in recent months.

I’d really like to thank everyone on Flewellyn Road for their patience this summer as construction will affect this particular road due to three separate projects stretching the entire length of the road. Earlier, we announced closures between Huntley Road and Eagleson Road due to the Enbridge Gas pipeline reinforcement project. Beginning this month, we’ll also begin the resurfacing of Flewellyn Road, between Munster Road and Ashton Station Road. The latest notice of closure is concerning the portion between Munster Road and Dwyer Hill Road for the renewal of a bridge. This closure will begin July 2 and last until August 22. Local and emergency trafﬁc will maintain access and a signed detour will be in place. Thank you again for your patience.

Fire hall is sea of red for Canada Day Seniors Breakfast News - It was a gathering at a fire hall, so not only were firefighters including Ottawa Fire Services chief John deHooge present but some firefighting equipment was used for the formal cake cutting ceremony. It was the annual Canada Day Seniors Breakfast hosted by city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shea Qadri, held at the Sterling Howie Fire Hall on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville. Usually a sea of red because of its fire trucks housed there, the fire hall continued to be a sea of red for this breakfast as everyone was wearing red to celebrate this occasion celebrating Canada’s 146th birthday. And when it came time to formally cut the two Canada Day cakes which had been provided by Stittsville Sobeys, out came the heavy equipment – councillor Qadri and city of Ottawa mayor Jim Watson wielded a fire axe while Ottawa Fire Services chief John deHooge and Sector Chief Todd Horrick handled a chain
saw. When you’re in a fire hall, firefighting ways prevail – forget the traditional knife. This was the first time that mayor Watson has attended this Canada Day Seniors Breakfast in Stittsville. That’s because normally he hosts his own Canada Day Breakfast event but with the construction currently underway at Lansdowne Park, the Aberdeen Pavilion venue is not available this year. This year’s Canada Day Seniors Breakfast began with, as would be expected, with the singing of O Canada, this year led by Carissa Fortin accompanied by her father Jean Fortin on guitar. Rev. Grant Dillenbeck of the Stittsville United Church was on hand to say “Grace” to begin the breakfast which featured scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, buns and more, all provided free thanks to councillor Qadri’s generosity. Scrumptious Inc. of Stittsville catered this year’s meal. A video with scenes from councillor Qadri’s recent Park Party and BBQ at Village
Square Park in Stittsville and put together by Sandy Durocher of Stittsville was shown
singing of “God Save The Queen” sung by all in attendance wound up the event.

Creating a Sustainable Public Sector Average Canadians understand that in order to be prosperous, you need to live within your means. You cannot spend more than you make, and you see that every dollar is spent wisely. Our government knows this too. That is why we are ending stimulus spending and taking steps to balance our budget and return to surplus by 2015.

Hand prints on ‘Happy Canada Day’ banner John Curry firstname.lastname@example.org
News - Youngsters and staff at the Jackson Trails School Age Program at St. Stephen Catholic School in Stittsville celebrated Canada Day by giving the event quite a hand or, more precisely, many hands. No, it wasn’t a period of prolonged applause but rather was a case of showing their support by providing hand prints on a giant Canada Day celebration banner. Over 70 red hand prints with associated
names of both School Age Program youngsters and staff, done using acrylic paint, decorated the giant white banner measuring approximately 15 feet long by 3 feet deep. The names surrounded the “Happy Canada Day” printed on the banner. The presence of the hand prints on the banner is meant to show the pride in Canada that all those at the Jackson Trails School Age Program, both youngsters and staff, have. The banner was created to be on display at the Stittsville Canada Day celebrations
last Monday on the grounds of Sacred Heart Catholic High School. This was the second time in recent weeks that the Jackson Trails School Age Program had made a banner to add colour to a community event organized by the Stittsville Village Association (SVA). A banner had also been made for the SVA’s Art in the Park event at the end of May. The SVA also organizes Stittsville’s annual Canada Day celebrations. Undertaking such a project ﬁts in with the Jackson Trails School Age Program of undertaking community kindness projects.
Racing at Capital City Speedway Special to the News

To do this, we are reforming the public sector in order to align it with current standards in the private sector. Public servants in the federal government have an average absentee rate of 18.2 days per year. This number is two and a half times more than what is common in the private sector. To put this in perspective, on any given day, approximately 19,000 public service workers are off sick. This is unsustainable.
stock car racing by Late Models, Thunder Cars, Mini Stocks, Legends and 4-Fun Vehicles.
The solution is to reform and modernize the current disability system for public servants, which has gone unchanged for 40 years. By modernizing this system and creating a short-term disability insurance plan, we will be able to provide proper support to employees through periods of illness.
Each racing night during the season will also have a special feature of some sort, ranging from Dinardo’s Kart Class to a 100 lap Enduro race to a appearance by the Vintage Modiﬁeds.
In addition, we announced a new management system that will track public service employees’ performance. This government-wide policy will help boost productivity and morale. It will permit management to reward good workers while dealing with poor performers effectively. Ensuring that everyone is pulling their weight is a common sense approach that will encourage the public service to work to its full potential. This is another way in which we are bringing public sector standards in line with the private sector. Finally, we are eliminating voluntary severance for public servants. This practice paid severance to those who quit or retired. It is very costly and not something that is seen in the private sector. This measure alone is expected to save taxpayers $500 million every year. Our Conservative Government respects taxpayers’ hard-earned money. We are focused on keeping taxes low and returning to a balanced budget by 2015 so that Canada can continue to prosper for years to come. Pierre Poilievre MP Nepean-Carleton

Youth rugby tournament at Twin Elm Park Dean Taylor Special to the News
Sports - Rugby is alive and well among the youth. This includes youth in Stittsville and Richmond who were among players on 18 teams from Ottawa, Kingston and Chelsea who played in the recent Indians Rugby Football Club (R.F.C.) Rugby Tournament. Playing in age groups ranging from U6 to U14, the tournament took place at the Twin Elm Rugby Park located on Twin Elm Road just outside Richmond. Seven players from Stittsville played for the Indians R.F.C. U14 team in this tournament while there was also one player from Richmond on the team. Youth rugby tournaments do not end with champions or trophies. Rather, all of the players play for the love of the game. The younger teams, from U6 to U10, played either flag or touch rugby with the coaches of the respective teams not only coaching but also refereeing and teaching the youngsters the sport as they played the game. These games were 20 minutes long with five minute breaks between halves. Six year old Ryan Kipping and his mother Jody made the trip from Kingston to participate in this tournament. Asked what he liked most about playing rugby, Ryan, who is in his second year of playing the sport, said “It’s the blood and the sweat.” Jody, Ryan’s mother, chuckles at this response, confiding that grass stained knees is the worst ailment suffered by younger players. The U12 and U14 games were 30 minutes long. Despite the sport’s reputation for potentially injurious play, it is a well coached sport with an em-
phasis on technique and safety. Matt Muzzi of Stittsville is one of the four experienced coaches of the Indians U14 team. He and his cocoaches ensure that players “walk through” tackling plays and rucks to teach them the correct and safe way to play the game. A ruck is a play in rugby in which a mass of players gathers around a ball dropped by a tackled ball carrier, with each player attempting to gain possession of the ball by kicking it to a teammate. Contact and tackling at the U12 and U14 ages tends to be more about “pushing” and “wrapping opposing players up” rather than inflicting bone crushing hits. Maintaining team possession of the ball and seeking advantageous field placement is the emphasis at this age. “Parents are easy going, there is a great learning environment and it’s a sport that any size or shape or sex can play – everyone touches the ball,” says coach Muzzi in outlining the positives about the sport of rugby. “It’s easier for kids to pick up rugby than other sports,” he adds, noting that there is a myth that rugby is a barbaric sport. Andrew Armstrong of Stittsville, another of the four coaches for the Indians U14 team, has played rugby for Team Canada at an international level. His two boys are involved in a number of sports including competitive hockey but he sees youth rugby as being an appealing sport for a number of reasons. “The cost to play is low, the kids practice once or twice a week on a set night, there is a position for everyone to play no matter your size or shape,” he says. Melissa Duff has been the Indians’ youth coordinator for the past six years, donating countless hours to organizing rugby for the youth age groups. She has seen this youth
program grow from seven players in 2008 to over 100 players today. There are no restrictive geographical boundaries for rugby the players for the Indians teams primarily are boys and girls from Stittsville, Richmond, Kanata, West Carleton and other communities in the west end of
the city of Ottawa. New players are most welcome to attend any practice which happens on Thursdays at 6 p.m. at Holy Trinity High School in Kanata. The Ottawa Indians Rugby Football Club is a community-oriented rugby club based in the west end of
Ottawa. Established in 1962, it offers programs that range from minirugby for children to junior competitive rugby for high school students to competitive programs for adult men and women. It is a non-profit organization committed to developing the growth of rugby in the Ottawa area.

LAND AMBULANCE SERVICE IN OTTAWA RECEIVES A FUNDING BOOST The provincial government is strengthening land ambulance services in Ottawa with increased funding in 2013 to ensure continued access to emergency health care for Ottawa residents. The province is supporting Ottawa with $38,541,000 in funding this year for land ambulance services, an increase of $2,795,000 or 7.8 per cent over 2012. Working with municipalities to improve access to ambulance services for people across the province is part of the Action Plan for Health Care and supports the new Ontario governmentâ€™s commitment to delivering the right care, at the right time, in the right place. The funding announcement was made today at Queensway Carleton Hospital by Bob Chiarelli, Ontarioâ€™s Energy Minister and MPP for Ottawa-West Nepean. i5IFGVOEJOHXFSFQSPWJEJOHUIJTZFBSNFBOTUIBUUIFSFTJEFOUTPG0UUBXBDBODPOUJOVFUPDPVOUPORVBMJUZMBOE ambulance services when they need them,â€? said Minister Chiarelli, â€œOur government will continue to work with our municipal partners.

Grade six leaving ceremony at St. Philip Special to the News
News - â€œYou are the Light in Godâ€™s Worldâ€? was the inscription written in the icing on the celebratory cake at the grade six leaving ceremony at St. Philip Catholic School in Richmond on Friday, 21. It carried on the concept of â€œLightâ€? which was featured in the opening moments of the ceremony as well when the grade six students of the Class of 2013 slowly processed into the darkened school gymnasium by twoâ€™s, holding lighted lanterns as the processional song â€œGo Light Your Worldâ€? played. These lighted lanterns were placed across the stage, serving as a backdrop to the ensuing ceremony which saw 26 students honoured for completing their education at St. Philip and now moving on to the next step in their education. The stage not only featured these lighted lanterns but was also decorated with a string of white lights and had â€œSt. Philip Leaving Ceremonyâ€? and â€œClass of 2013â€? proclaimed on the back wall of the stage, adorned, among other things, with images of stars. The gymnasium itself conveyed a festive atmosphere with yellow and blue balloons cascading from two basketball hoops. Potted yellow ďŹ‚owers adorned the microphone area used by the students in the ceremony.

These include a cruciďŹ x as a symbol of the Catholic faith; books as a symbol of all of the things learned at the school; a basketball as a symbol of the sports played; a Canadian ďŹ‚ag as a symbol of freedom and love of country; a book as a symbol of Canadaâ€™s bilingual nature; a St. Philip team shirt as a symbol of pride that students have in their school; and a lantern so that the next yearâ€™s Class of 2014 students can shine their light and guide the path for other students at the school. The ceremony included the presentation of a number of special individual awards recognizing the achievements of individual grade six students in a range of subjects and activities. The Director of Education Award which is presented to the student who best exempliďŹ es the gospel values of â€œBelieving, Discovering and Achievingâ€? was presented to Brady Sterling. The schoolâ€™s Outstanding Achievement Award honouring a student or students whose overall achievement, performance, participation and effort have been consistently exemplary in all areas of the curriculum throughout the school year was presented to Hannah Mitchell. The Academic Award recognizing students who have demonstrated an ability to work at a high standard of achievement across the curriculum and have produced exemplary and quality work was presented to four students â€“ Gabriel Wooltorton, Maggie Johnson, Nicholas Doiron and Lance Goddard.
