EMC news - The Richmond Village Association (RVA) is in danger of folding. It all depends on whether a number of Richmond residents step forward and offer to be involved with the RVA going forward or not. If this does not happen, current president Don Flanders sees no option but to disband the organization. “We are now at a critical juncture in the history of the Richmond Village Association,� Mr. Flanders states in an email outreach to the community. He states that if the positions of president, secretary, treasurer and two directors are not filled at or before the

RVA’s annual general meeting in February, then the organization will have to disband. And even this may not be enough, as he points out that the RVA does not have at present a sufficient number of volunteers to run the community activities that it has organized over the years. For example, the garden contest which the RVA has organized in past years has already been cancelled for 2013 due to this lack of volunteers. Other community events and activities which the RVA organizes but which depend on volunteer help include the annual Richmond Village Garage Sale, the Christmas parade, the “Lighting of the Park� ceremony, the winter street banner contest, maintenance of the Rich-

mond village website, spring cleanup day in Richmond with its associated poster contest for students and beautification of Richmond through the hanging of flower baskets in the summer. The RVA, as per its mandate to represent the views of Richmond residents on issues of concern, also plays a role in commenting on development proposals in Richmond and in monitoring initiatives such as the source water protection plan. The RVA also tries to be a community information source for the community through its website and facebook page and also through the distribution of flyers outlining upcoming community events and activities. See RVA, page 2

EMC sports - The Goulbourn Recreation Complex and the Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena are both venues for the 2013 Bell Capital Cup. These two Stittsville arenas are among 31 ice surfaces across the city of Ottawa being used in this tournament which is widely recognized as the world’s premier atom and peewee hockey tournament. This year’s edition of the Bell Capital Cup tournament includes 19 divisions for atom and peewee minor hockey teams, involving 380 teams and more than 6,500 players. Teams from five different countries are expected to participate in the tournament including Canada (three provinces and one territory), China (Hong Kong), Finland, Germany and the United States (with teams from nine different states). The 19 divisions in this year’s Bell Capital Cup includes two girls’ groups. This is the 14th edition of the tournament which began in 1999. The tournament, which begins this Thursday, Dec. 27, will run through to Tuesday, Jan. 1. In total, there will be more than 800 games played in the tournament. Each division’s championship game will be played at Scotiabank Place, home of the Ottawa Senators, over the course of three days, from Sunday, Dec. 30 through to Tuesday, Jan. 1. It is estimated that more than 20,000 visitors will be in the National Capital Region as a result of this tournament. Nearly 12,000 hotel rooms will be used during the event. The Ottawa International Hockey Festival, the non-profit organization that runs the Bell Capital Cup tournament, has a mandate to support local children’s charities and minor hockey. That’s why funds raised from this year’s tournament will once again go to support minor hockey and local charities. Last year $150,000 was raised through Bell Capital Cup initiatives, bringing the 13 year total for the tournament to more than $2.4 million.

More projects planned for Seje in 2013 Special to the News EMC news - The Community Bible Church in Stittsville has been partnering with the village of Seje in Kenya since April 2011. The objective of the partnership is to establish sustainable solutions in agriculture, clean water and education in the community of Seje which is in one of the poorest regions in Africa. Seje is located in western Kenya near the Ugandan border. The region suffers from droughts for much of the year.

In addition, villagers as a rule do not have access to clean water as the region does not support wells from a geological perspective. AIDS and malaria are prevalent in the region. Half of the children do not survive to see their fifth birthday because of disease, primarily caused by dirty water. The Seje community also has a high number of orphans who are at great risk since the community cannot adequately look after them. They receive minimal education, food and

medical assistance. Through various fundraisers and support from sponsors, the Community Bible Church in Stittsville has partnered with the community of Seje on several projects already. A school for orphans has been started. Initially supporting two classes, namely junior and senior kindergarten, the school provides quality education, food and health services for orphans. A water system that draws water from a nearby river was built. The system filters

and chlorinates the water and then pumps it up a hill into a storage container. The system is solar powered and has distribution lines to sites such as the school. The Seje community volunteered its time to dig over two kilometers of trenches through dry, rocky ground to install the water system. The first phase of the project is nearly complete. Ten dilapidated huts have been rebuilt. They are the homes of those who are sick or elderly and could not do it themselves.

A community centre that serves multiple purposes such as meetings and events was built. This community centre, which should be operational this December, will also be used as a temporary school facility. The Community Bible Church/Seje partnership has also provided funding to support emergency health needs. The primary objective of the Community Bible Church/ Seje partnership in 2013 is to build upon what has been done and work towards establishing community sustainability. Projects planned for 2013 include adding another grade for the school, doubling the capacity of the water system, teaching farming techniques specific to the regional con-

ditions and acquiring four acres of farmland that will be owned and operated by the community, with the agricultural produce primarily used to support the school. There is a need for more sponsors for children in order to add the additional class planned for 2013. In addition, there is a need for volunteers to work on project teams or help with fundraising. Anyone interested in helping out in any of these ways should contact Ron Killeen at ron.killeen@sympatico,ca or Pastor Steve Stewart at steve. stewart@cbcstittsville.com More information can be found on the Community Bible Church’s website at www. cbcstittsville.com/home/sejeproject

But all of this community involvement and work is now at risk as the RVA faces this leadership and volunteer crisis. At the upcoming annual general meeting this February, the executive positions of president, vice-president, secretary and treasurer will all be vacated. If they are not replaced, then the future of the RVA looks bleak. The positions of president, secretary, treasurer and at least two director positions must be filled at the annual general meeting for the RVA to be able to continue. And even this may not be enough unless a number of Richmond residents come forward and offer to help with one or more of the RVA events and activities. The RVA was established in 1997 as an organization to represent the interests of Richmond residents on issues of concern. It also organizes events and activities of a community nature. Current RVA president Don Flanders can be contacted at donflan@magma.ca

Thanks to newspaper Barb Vant’Slot and the Stittsville Legion would like to thank the Stittsville News EMC for all the help over the past year and wish everyone at the newspaper a Very Merry Christmas and a Safe, Happy and Healthy New Year.

‘Thank you’ sign doubles in size john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - The generosity of businesses and individuals in the Stittsville community has been so great that the Stittsville District Lions Club has had to double the size of its sign at Village Square Park on which it thanks all those who have contributed $100 to help with the Christmas lights at the park. The original two-panel sign thanking donors has now become a four-panel sign to make room for the additional donors. These new panels give thanks to the following donors: Stittsville Automotive Service Centre Ltd., Matt Wigney Enterprises, Bell Plumbing, Kavanagh Family Investments Ltd., Stittsville Legion, Shoppers Drug Mart, Bill Bradley, Stittsville Legion Ladies Auxiliary, Novatech Engineering, R.D. Richardson Real Estate, Holitzner Homes, Deloitte Management Services, Stittsville IDA Drug Mart, Dr. Roy Kang (denist), Lion Paul Riddell, Dr. Do Dental, DeMarco Construction, Granite Ridge Specialty Care, Motion Works Physiotherapy, Hinton Automotive, The Mixing Bowl, Earth Movers, Main Street Optical, Rose-Lyne Gauthier LLB, Kimberly Martinuk State Farm, Howard and Molly Maguire, Stittsville Physiotherapy Centre, Napoli’s CafÊ, Sharkey’s Towing and Autovation Inc. Donors listed on the first two panels of the sign included Hudson Insurance, Capital Services Snowplowing, Brown’s Your Independent Grocer, Shoppers Drug Mart (Stittsville), Kellco Car Care, Primrose Capital & Excavation, Blondehead Farms Inc., Marg’s Drapery, Restore All Amsted Developments, Stittsville

District Lions Club, Wayne Beaten Enterprises Inc., The Glen Scottish Restaurant, Stittsville Trailers, Stittsville Signs, Vos Trailers, Kodiak Snowblowing Inc., Royal Bank (Stittsville), Tony Olsen Enterprises, Canadian Golf and Country Club, Stittsville Ranges, Murray Refrigeration, Capital Water Supply Ltd., Dr. Jack Newton (Dentistry), Napoli’s CafĂŠ, Bowmac Gunpar (1996) Inc., Reginald and Lesley Roe and Stittsville Pool & Spa. The Stittsville District Lions Club not only purchases replacement lights for the Christmas lights display at Village Square Park but also provides the manpower to put up the new lights and ensure that all of the lights are working prior to the formal “turning onâ€? ceremony following the annual Parade of Lights. The Lions Club is helped in financing the purchase of these new lights that are needed every year by donors, both corporate and individual. In the past, these sponsors were acknowledged by individual signs which were placed on the trees in the park. However, these signs would be blown by the wind and required ongoing vigilance throughout the holiday season. This year, for the first time, the Stittsville District Lions Club went with a fixed sign on which the sponsors are listed. Produced by Stittsville Signs and Glass which is located next to Village Square Park, the sign has been erected along Stittsville Main Street at the edge of Village Square Park. The sign features the Lions logo at its top, along with the phrase “Thank You To Our Sponsors.â€? The sign features both blue and yellow, the two traditional Lions Club colours.

SVA covers Parade of Lights expenses John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

The general principle that each SVAsponsored community event should be self-sufficient and cover its own expenses is to remain in place. SVA-sponsored community events include not only the Parade of Lights but also the annual Canada Day celebrations, Villagefest in the fall and the Art and Authors in the Park event in the spring. The SVA executive also discussed possible changes to the annual Parade of Lights such as charging a fee for commercial/business entries. Any such changes will be discussed again by the SVA executive before they would be implemented. R0021831917

EMC news - This year’s Parade of Lights attracted a record number of floats and entries, over 50, but it also attracted some red ink for the Stittsville Village Association (SVA) which organizes the annual event. The SVA incurred expenses of about $1,000 while there was no offsetting revenue this year. In previous years, the SVA has received some corporate sponsorship which has helped offset these expenses. This year there were no corporate sponsorships associated with the event.

Expenses incurred by the SVA included an appearance fee for the highland pipe band that traditionally leads the parade, cost of a public address system at Village Square to announce the floats as they passed by on Stittsville Main Street and for use at the Lighting of the Park ceremony which follows the parade and a small cost for the delivery and pickup of the traffic control barriers. At its December executive meeting, the SVA agreed to cover these Parade of Lights expenses from SVA reserve funds, although it was generally agreed that this should be an exception rather than the rule for SVA events.

EMC news - The nativity story came alive at Christ Church Ashton on Sunday morning, Dec. 16. This happened thanks to the youth of the church’s Sunday School who put on a pageant telling the story of the birth of the Baby Jesus. Costumed Sunday School youth assumed the various roles in the pageant such as Ella Wiggins as Mary, holding the Baby Jesus; Cameron Toswell as Joseph; Eric Wiggins, Evan Gwin and Luke McKessock as the Three Kings; Erin Lyons as an Angel; and Sara Lyons as a sheep. The story was narrated by Carlee Lyons. Following the worship service, members of the congregation joined the cast of the Sunday School pageant for refreshments in the parish hall. This presentation of the Sunday School pageant began a busy week at Christ Church Ashton. There was caroling in the village on Tuesday evening, Dec. 18 while the Anglican Church Women held a Christmas dinner on Thursday evening, Dec. 20. Christ Church Ashton held two services on Christmas Eve, Monday, Dec. 24 as well as a morning worship service on Christmas Day, Tuesday, Dec. 25. Rev. Jim Kirkpatrick is the minister at Christ Church Ashton. Brian Hull is the Rector’s Warden while Kirk Hansen is the People’s Warden. Ivan Warner is the treasurer while Colin Price is the envelope secretary. Pat Sample, Karen Wiggins and Jennifer Bulman look after the church’s music ministry while George Margita looks after property matters. Jeff McKessock is in charge of the Sunday School while Marion Jones heads the Anglican Church Women.

A civic wish list for the new year

R

ather than looking back at the year that was, let’s look ahead to what lies in store for the city of Ottawa and its residents in the coming 12 months. Yes, there were significant events in the history of this city last year -- the Lansdowne Park court decisions and the approval of the light rail plan stand out as two of the biggest -- but with those things in the past, what does the turning of the calendar

year have in store for us? If we had our way, here are a few things that we think everyone living here can agree would be good things for the capital. With any luck, the Ontario Liberal party will wrap its leadership contest up in due course and recall the legislature as soon as possible in the new year, allowing the entire province to get on with the business of rejuvenating Ontario. Between labour conflicts, questionable

conduct by elected officials, troubled government agencies and a stagnant economy, there is too much that needs to be sorted out at Queen’s Park for the prorogation to last much longer. Speaking of labour strife, we hope the Ministry of Education and teachers’ federations can come to an agreement that allows for our children to receive the education they deserve under conditions that allow government to rein in the

deficit while respecting the collective bargaining rights of teachers. That’s a tough task considering the current climate, but it’s the challenge at hand. Closer to home, Ottawa needs to finally move forward with the Presto program or move on. A system that makes the most of existing technology to ensure maximum convenience for transit riders while minimizing cost and increasing efficiency for OC Transpo is

what we expect. If Metrolinx, the provincial agency behind Presto, can’t deliver this type of system, the city needs to find someone who can. With the city’s Official Plan up for review, now is the time to bring the preamalgamation patchwork of zoning bylaws under one roof, making planning easier for staff and the rules easier to understand for developers and residents alike. When it comes to transparency, the city needs to prove its commitment to openness by being upfront about projects such as the temporary parking lot on

Lees Avenue. Over the fiveplus years it’s expected to take to finish the LRT project this isn’t going to be the only temporary measure the city will need to take, but it can surely do so in a more transparent way. There are other things we’d like to see, too: the return of professional hockey to the ice at Scotiabank Place, more work to make Ottawa one of North America’s most cyclingfriendly city and the genesis of planning for Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017. We accomplished much as a city in 2012. Let’s keep up the good work in 2013.

COLUMN

A bit of perspective for 2012 human beings earning a meagre wage. Ban the robocalls. If we are to be called, let a human being do the dialing, for Pete’s sake, and pay him some money. 4. Social media — or, more precisely, talking about social media. Facebook, Twitter and whatnot are either going to survive or not. Who knows? But do the mainstream media have to be so fixated on them, as if they were as newsworthy as war, starvation or, more to the point, climate change? A related bad idea in the mainstream media is treating Twitter feeds as if they were news. Nobody cares about somebody’s 140 characters and, as we’ve seen in recent tragic events, they are often horrendously wrong. 5. Siri. Hey, you can talk to you phone and tell it what to do. You can tell it to play you a samba or call your uncle. You can ask your phone where the nearest sushi is. What a contribution to mankind. Think of the useful products that could be coming out of our economic system, think of the serious problems our economic system could be solving if it wasn’t expending all its creative energy on phones. 6. Condos. Enough already. Our city needs at least some small houses, small stores. We’re losing them every day as new condos rise, ever higher. The arguments for intensification are familiar to us all. But this is getting too intense. Since this a complicated world, we must take account of some ideas that are iffy. They may be good, they may be bad. We’ll just have to wait and see. In this category we would place such things as postal delivery changes, every-other-week garbage pickup and additional lanes on the Queensway. We shouldn’t omit thoughts of the best ideas of the year. There were some. As always, the NCC Christmas lights were gorgeous downtown, although perhaps a bit cut back, in the Scrooge-ish spirit of the times. The Rink of Dreams at City Hall is terrific. Check it out at night if you haven’t seen it. By year’s end it will have accommodated more skaters than the National Hockey League. And finally, here’s a good idea that not everyone expected: light rail.

n the midst of all this seasonal joy and hilarity and sing-songing and retrospecting, there is a constant need for perspective, an imperative to bring us back to earth. With that in mind, this is exactly the right time to present the Worst Ideas of 2012, with a special emphasis on the National Capital Region. 1. A casino for downtown. What more needs to be said? Negligible contribution to the economy, if any, social problems galore. The truly classy cities of the world shun casinos. It would be nice if we could be among them. Think how it would improve the life, not to mention the image of the city, if downtown got a new library instead of a new casino. 2. Two-tier recess. This one might have gone unnoticed if not for coverage in the Citizen. Some elementary schools are adopting a plan under which special programs are available at recess for children whose parents fork over the money. Can you imagine any responsible educator even looking once at such a program? The kids with less money stand and watch the kids with more money have fun? The reason we have public schools is so that every child can receive the same level of education. If these programs are that good, the school boards should pay for them and make them available to all. Either that or ditch the idea altogether. 3. Robocalls, political or otherwise. It’s bad enough that they have been allowed to intrude into elections, but even without that it’s bad. Why should machines be allowed to disturb us in our homes? It’s bad enough that telemarketers interrupt our dinners, but at least these are

Acclaimed actors in International Film Series John Curry

john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - Omar Sy, Sarah Polley, Mads Mikkelsen and Chris O’Dowd. Four actors, all acclaimed in their own way. And what is to be a common thread linking them all? None other than they will all be in one of the four films shown in the first-ever International Film Series being offered by the Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville. The films will be shown during the Film Series’ four month run at the Empire Theatre at Kanata Centrum in Kanata, with one of the four films being shown on one Thursday each month starting this coming January. Omar Sy will be starring in “The Intouchables,” a French film with English subtitles that will be shown on Thursday, Jan. 24 at 7 p.m. This film, featuring the development of an improbable bond between a wealthy quadriplegic and a young offender of Senegalese descent who is hired as a livein caregiver, became the second highest grossing French film of all time in France, so you know that it’s good.

For her performance in the film, Omar Sy received the Cesar Award (France’s equivalent of an Oscar) for best actor. He was the first black actor to win the award. Born in France, Omar Sy, who is now 34 years of age, has been acting since the year 2000 when he made his film debut as a taxi driver in the film “La Tour Montpamesse infemale.” That brings us to Sarah Polley, a Canadian actress, singer, film director and screenwriter who first came to widespread

Sarah Polley

attention for her role in the television series “Road to Avonlea.” Her film “Stories We Tell,” which is the first feature length documentary that she has directed, will be shown on Thursday, Feb. 21 at 7 p.m. as the second film to be shown in this International Film Series being held by the Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville. This film had its world premiere at the 2012 Venice Film Festival and had its North American premiere at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival. The film is about Sarah Polley herself and her own family. Sarah Polley made her debut as a director with the film “Away from Here” which received an Academy Award nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay. So far, one French actor and one Canadian actor/director. That’s brings us to Mads Mikkelsen, a Danish actor who stars in “A Royal Affair,” a film that will be shown as part of this International Film Series on Thursday, March 21 at 7 p.m. This 2011 film is an histori-

Mads Mikkelsen cal drama set in 18th century Denmark at the court of the mentally ill King Christian VII of Denmark. It features a romance that developes between the Queen and the royal physician. This film has been selected as Denmark’s entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the Academy Awards. Mads Mikkelsen, for his part, has received accolades for his film work. He played the villain Le Chiffre in the 2006 James Bond film “Ca-

sino Royale.” At the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, he received the Best Actor Award for his role in another film called “The Hunt.” The final film in this International Film Series being sponsored by the Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville is “The Sapphires,” a 2012 Australian film that is based on a popular stage show in Australia. One of its stars is Chris O’Dowd, who has appeared on TV in both Britain and Ireland. The film tells the story of “The Sapphires,” four indigenous women who form a musical group and travel to Vietnam in 1968 to sing for the troops in the war there. This film had its world premiere at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. All four of these films – “The Intouchables,” “Stories We Tell,” “A Royal Affair,” and “The Sapphires” will be part of the International Film Series that will run from January through April (one Thursday evening a month) at the Empire Theatre at Kanata Centrum in Kanata. That’s when you will have the opportunity to see these actors –

Omar Sy, Sarah Polley, Mads Mikkelsen and Chris O’Dowd – display their work, as well as see the work of numerous other actors who are making their mark on the international film stage. And what’s so great about all of this is that a pass to see all four of these movies is only $36 for one person. These passes are available for sale now at the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop at the Stittsville Shopping Centre (Shoppers Drug Mart plaza) at 1300 Stittsville Main Street and also at the ward office of city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex on Shea Road. For more information about this International Film Series, please call Valerie Wright, a member of the Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville, at 613836-9125 or send an email to filmseries@stittsvillerotary. com . The Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville is sponsoring this International Film Series in partnership with Film Circuit, the film outreach arm of the Toronto International Film Festival.

Fitness Depot: Dedicated to Your Fitness and Health by Brian Turner

As the old year ends and the new approaches, more than a few of us will take a look in the mirror and decide it’s time to shape up. Maybe we’ll join a gym, but many of us will look to purchase home exercise equipment as a more convenient, comfortable, and private alternative to fitness club membership. But where to turn? Which elliptical, treadmill, rower, or exercise bike to buy? It’s easy to get lost in the myriad of websites, media ads, and avalanches of flyers overflowing our mailboxes. It’s also very easy to choose the wrong piece of equipment, that no matter how often you use it or how well designed it is, won’t deliver the results you’re looking for. And of course there’s the risk of injury because you didn’t get the appropriate advice you needed before purchasing a piece of fitness equipment that your body or physical condition isn’t suited for. Fitness Depot has been providing solutions to all these problems and concerns for over 20 years in Ottawa and their long list of satisfied and physically fit clients provide strong testament to their customercentered way of doing business. First, all of the associates you’ll meet at either Fitness Depot location (499 Industrial Ave in the east or 255 Kanata Ave in the west) are experts on the products and accessories they offer. They have been specifically trained by North America’s major fitness equipment manufacturers and receive continual education and updates on new designs and features. They are all fulltime employees and were chosen because of their commitment to physical fitness and excellent customer service. Second, if you want to try any of Fitness Depot’s equipment or products before you buy, it’s as easy as riding a bike because they’re all set up in their comfortable and roomy facilities for demo purposes. There’s no guessing from looking at a picture on the box or at some video as to whether or not you’re choosing the right product. Fitness Depot’s staff also take the time to ask the right questions to make sure that what you buy is right for you and other members of your family who might use it, and for your home. There’s no use getting the perfect home gym system if it won’t fit in your family or exercise room. In fact in most cases the associate you first meet will be the one to guide you through choosing and purchasing the right equipment and accessories to accompanying the delivery truck to your home to ensure a done-right-the-first-time set-up and to make sure you’re completely comfortable with all the features and operations.

And since they’re a depot, they carry everything they offer in stock and can arrange most installations on a same-day basis. Why wait days or weeks when you want to start your new life now? Some us of will enter Fitness Depot for the first time after being gym or club members and will be pleasantly surprised to find the same reputable major brands that our fitness club uses. Fitness Depot’s equipment suppliers are very carefully chosen and only ship to specialty retailers. You don’t have to be a fitness veteran to recognize names like LifeFitness, Precor, or Octane just to name a few. And commercial gyms and clubs also purchase their equipment from Fitness Depot. So the same expert associates that local gyms rely on, are there to serve you as well. And they’re happy to handle special orders for those rare occasions when someone is looking for a hard to find item that isn’t normally stocked. More than a few of us have experienced (or know someone who has) the difficulty that can arise when a fitness machine requires service or repair. With purchases from some retailers, the only choice is to package it up and send it back. But Fitness Depot runs a complete service centre in Ottawa that’s as close as your computer mouse. And since they offer their own in-house extended service plans, affordable peace of mind comes along with professional technicians. Whether it’s a simple adjustment or minor repair, or part replacement, it’s all part of Fitness Depot’s A to Z white-glove customer service. For Ottawa’s truly largest selection of fitness equipment and gear at the guaranteed lowest prices, with service that’s as fit as a fiddle, there really is only one choice with two great locations: Fitness Depot. East end manager Paul Riley and west end’s Kevin DeForge and their very physical teams are on site and on track Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm, on Saturdays from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm, and on Sundays from noon to 5:00 pm. You can reach them by phone at 613-247-8888 (East) or 613-591-8988 (West). Their website at www.fitnessdepotottawa.com has full details and specs on everything they sell. Good quality home fitness equipment means a long term relationship that brings much more value than flashy offers on unknown brands. With Fitness Depot, nothing’s holding you back from a fit future.

Councillor looks back on 2012 John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - New trafďŹ c signals. A new sidewalk. A new ice surface. Pedestrian improvements along Huntmar Drive. An expanded Bryanston Gate Park. A new Park and Ride at Scotiabank Place. And when added to Ottawa-wide initiatives like the rejuvenation of Lansdowne Park and advances in the LRT project, 2012 was a good year on the municipal government front, at least in the view of city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri.. In looking back on 2012, councillor Qadri says that city council has worked well together as a team under mayor Jim Watson and with city staff in moving forward with projects in the past year. He particularly pointed to the Lansdowne Park and LRT projects, saying that these two projects along with the opening of the new Ottawa Convention Centre are deďŹ ning accomplishments for the current council. Councillor Qadri also points to the “Ottawa on the Moveâ€? initiative to fund infrastructure improvements in the city, noting that a new sidewalk along Stittsville Main Street at Bell Memorial Park and pedestrian improvements along Huntmar Drive north of Maple Grove Road were both realized thanks to this initiative. He admitted that the recent auditor general’s report had identiďŹ ed some deďŹ ciencies at city hall but he noted that city staff has reacted quickly to the report and has acted on most of the recommendations.

Councillor Qadri says that the auditor general’s report is necessary as it helps keep the city on a “mindful path.â€? He feels that the city’s budget for 2013 with a 2.09 percent tax increase is a good one that takes into account the needs of the ever-expanding city. As for Stittsville improvements in 2012, councillor Qadri points to the installation of trafďŹ c signals at the intersection of Stittsville Main Street and Wintergreen Drive/ Mulkins Street, noting that it took 23 years to get them in place but that ďŹ nally all of the trafďŹ c conditions were met to get them installed. He said that the intersection is now far safer thanks to the trafďŹ c signals, both for Wyldewood residents and also for those using the Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena. Councillor Qadri also points to the opening of the new ice pad at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex in 2012. “That is a great addition to this community,â€? he said, noting that the new ice surface is fully accessible and can be used for sledge hockey. Councillor Qadri is also pleased with the refurbishment and enlargement of the Bryanston Gate Park which can now better serve both the Bryanston Gate community and parts of the adjacent Jackson Trails community. He also feels that the small toboggan hill that is now part of the park is a good addition to the community. Councillor Qadri is pleased as well with the establishment of the new Park and Ride at Scotiabank Place which he feels is taking some pressure

Shad Qadri off the Park and Ride at Eagleson Road and the Queensway. He notes that there will be more bus services running through the lot in the future, particularly when an on-ramp from the lot to the adjacent Queensway becomes a reality. He expects that this will happen sometime in mid-2013. Councillor Qadri says that he worked with members of the community in responding to the Environmental Assessment dealing with a new landďŹ ll on the Waste Management site on Carp Road. He says that he met with the Ontario Minister of the Environment along with representations of the community coalition opposing the new landďŹ ll site to put forward the community’s concerns about the proposal. Councillor Qadri said that in the past year he has been working with several other councillors on examining

the city’s planning policies “through what we call a suburban lens.â€? The group is looking at city planning policies to see how they should be changed to allow for more intensiďŹ cation in urban and suburban areas without impacting on safety or quality of life. Councillor Qadri is also pleased that in 2012 he was able to get the go-ahead for the Environmental Assessment (EA) for the widening of the Carp Road between Hazeldean Road and the Queensway. While this will probably take a year or two to complete, councillor Qadri is happy that the EA is now “on the table.â€? Councillor Qadri admits that there have been “hiccupsâ€? in the rollout of the new Presto card for OC Transpo but he is willing to wait until this coming April when it is to be released. He notes, though, that if the Presto card is not up and running in April, then the city has to look at another system. Councillor Qadri, in cooperation with the Stittsville Village Association, has taken steps recently to ensure that new businesses and developments in Stittsville respect the name of Stittsville and use it to identify their location. He says that keeping the identity of Stittsville and indeed any other similar historic community in the city is very important. He says that Stittsville has a well deďŹ ned history that should be respected. He attributes some confusion on the matter to the fact that the Stittsville ward boundaries and Canada Post’s Stittsville mail addresses are not identical in all cases.

THANK YOU FOR MAKING A DIFFERENCE THIS HOLIDAY SEASON â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year, my son was 6 years old. One night, while he was brushing his teeth, he looked up at me and told me what he wanted for Christmas. He said that even though he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe in Santa anymore, he still wished for a toy car. It was one of those cars that climbs walls, turns over and just keeps going and going. He told me that he knew he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to get it because we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford it. I was devastated. My little boy wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t asking for much, but he was right; we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the means to get this for himâ&#x20AC;?. This story is from a mother who has received help from the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aid Society of Ottawa. Due to external circumstances beyond her control, life wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t what she had envisioned for her children. When her worker found out about her situation, she immediately went to the volunteers who manage the Holiday Gift Program in search of this toy. After a few days, the toy was found and a call was made to Mom. Mom was in tears, because she ďŹ nally got a chance to make her little boyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wish come true. After the holidays, the worker received a voicemail explaining how this little boy, Christmas morning, opened his gift and started jumping for joy, squealing with excitement. Mom said when she tucked her little boy in that night, he thanked her, told her it was the best day ever and that now, he BELIEVED! This is just one example of how together, we can make a difference. If you could see the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s faces light up when they open their gifts or the smile spread across their face from ear to ear, you would be witness to the magical moments the holiday season can bring. On behalf of the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aid Society of Ottawa (CASO) and the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aid Foundation of Ottawa (CAFO), thank you to all who have given their time, money and commitment to the children, youth and families of our community. This year, CASO received more than 9,000 gifts from over 140 organizations, businesses, schools and individuals. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had approximately 10 volunteers donate over 850 hours collecting, sorting and preparing these gifts for pick-up. Year after year, we have the chance to see ďŹ rsthand what your contributions mean to children, youth and families. We are humbled by your generosity.

Three-vehicle convoy carries gifts from Stittsville school John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - It was a convoy carrying the true spirit of Christmas. The three-vehicle convoy left Guardian Angels Catholic School in Stittsville on Friday morning, Dec. 14, headed for St. Rose of Lima Catholic School (formerly Bayshore Catholic School) in the Bayshore area of Ottawa. The two schools have been partnered under an Ottawa Catholic School Board initiative which sees one school help out another which may have a school community that has more needs than found elsewhere. In this case, the convoy vehicles were jammed with gift baskets, over 30 in total, which were assembled by classes at Guardian Angels. The classes were given information about the receiving family at St. Rose of Lima School, including the ages of those who would be receiving gifts in the gift basket, so that appropriate gifts could be included. The gift baskets, each packed with gifts, were loaded into the three waiting vehicles, leaving just enough room for the driver, and off they went to St. Rose of Lima School. At St. Rose of Lima, the receiving families each were invited to the school on an evening to pick up the gift baskets

and take them home, ready for distribution on Christmas. In addition, each receiving family also received a $50 shopping gift card thanks to the generosity of Guardian Angels Catholic School and its School Council. Mrs. Donna Bekkers-Boyd, principal of St. Rose of Lima Catholic School, who was one of the drivers in the convoy, said that each receiving family has its own unique story. A number are new Canadians who are working hard in their new country but who perhaps do not yet have the financial security that allows for a lot of family Christmas gift giving. So, having the students and families at Guardian Angels Catholic School in Stittsville show such generosity and such a true spirit of Christmas where giving rather than receiving is encouraged has meant a brighter and more joyous Christmas experience for the receiving families at St. Rose of Lima Catholic School. St. Rose of Lima Catholic School, renamed this school year, is named in honour of St. Rose of Lima, who is the patron saint of indigenous people, of the Americas, of gardeners, of florists, of Peru, of India, of the Phillippines, of Latin America and of embroiderers, among other causes. St. Rose of Lima, who was the first person born in the

Americas to be canonized by the Catholic Church which happened back in 1671, was

famous for her holiness. Her days were filled with acts of charity and industry as she

helped the sick and hungry in her community. She helped care for the poor while her

nights were devoted to prayer and penance in a little grotto which she had built.

T-Team to organize Say goodbye to Presto card, hello rain barrel sale for to Gatineau bus card, MPP says Village Association Derek Dunn

derek.dunn@metroland.com

john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - There was “The ATeam.” Now there’s “The T-Team.” The A-Team, of course, was made famous in the American action-adventure television series that ran for five seasons in the 1980’s, featuring Col. John “Hannibal” Smith (George Peppard) and his team of do-good, innovative personalities who are on the run from the military police. “I love it when a plan comes together,” was a pet phrase by Hannibal Smith when one of the team’s far-fetched plans works. The T-Team is a trio of three members of the Stittsville Village Association (SVA) executive who have agreed to work together to organize the SVA’s rain barrel sale which will be held this coming spring. The SVA first-ever rain barrel sale this past spring proved to be very successful, with over 400 rain barrels sold. Members of this “T-Team” are SVA vice-president Theresa Qadri and SVA directors Tim LaPlante and Tanya Hein. Tanya was the chief organizer this year’s event but is unable to commit as much time and effort to the 2013 sale because of the birth of a child in October. However, she has agreed to work on the project to a lesser degree which is why Theresa

Qadri and Tim LaPlante have agreed to be part of the “T-Team.” Of course, Mr. LaPlante is no stranger to the rain barrel sale and just like the television “A-Team” had its Mr. T in the character of B.A. Baracus, so too this SVA “T-Team” has its own Mr. T in the person of Mr. LaPlante. He was instrumental in the success of the rain barrel sale earlier this year. As owner of the Stittsville Sobeys store, he distributed thousands of flyers about the rain barrel sale to customers. He also had a sample of the rain barrel on display at the store. In addition, on delivery day for the rain barrels, his staff was involved in the unloading of the rain barrels. The rain barrel sale generates numerous phone calls. Tanya Hein handled all of these calls for the first rain barrel sale but now she will have the help of Theresa Qadri in answering these calls. Tim LaPlante will once again this year work on publicizing the rain barrel sale and will also be involved on the delivery/pick up day. The rain barrel sale earlier this year was a major fundraiser for the SVA, with 407 barrels sold. The selling price of these barrels, which are recycled containers, is $55 each, with the SVA receiving $10 for each barrel sold.

system contract to Presto. “I wonder why they province did this,” he said. “Is the Ottawa taxpayer getting the best value for money,” he asks. He bases his assertion on a May 20, 2011 letter of agreement from the Ontario Minister of Transportation, Bob Chiarelli, to Watson detailing gas tax funds and guidelines for the public transportation program. “The guidelines stated that prior to the release of any dedicated gas tax funds, Ottawa was required to ‘participate in the Presto Fare System project and will be required to meet their financial obligations for that project,” reads a press release from MacLaren. Does that mean the province bribed the city, to the detriment of taxpayers? Watson has told media that MPP MacLaren is barking up the wrong tree; that the city signed on with Presto four years ago - before it was tied to gas tax money. El-Chantiry, a card-carrying Liberal, agrees that MacLaren could be headed in the wrong direction. “If he’s aware of a backroom deal, I’m not aware of it,” councillor El-Chantiry says. MacLaren was among the first to tap into Presto problems in Ottawa, bringing his concerns to Chiarelli in November 2011. He said nothing was done. “Maybe instead of being part of the solution he is part of the problem,” MacLaren said.

EMC news – Ditch the Presto smart card system and go with Gatineau’s city-bus cards, MPP Jack MacLaren said during a press conference at the Terry Fox transit station on Friday, Dec. 14. Presto has ballooned into a multimillion-dollar boondoogle, MacLaren said, on par with other McGuinty Liberal initiatives such as eHealth, ORNGE and the closure of two gas plants in southern Ontario. Auditor General Jim McCarter’s report shows the costs of the GTA/Ottawa intended system could exceed $700 million. “It’s another in a long line of Liberal scandals,” said the CarletonMississippi Mills MPP, who added that no Presto system in the world is operational and none will likely be operational. Why the government would “reinvent the wheel” is baffling to him. City councillors such as Eli ElChantiry say they aren’t downplaying the problems with Presto. But the costs are on par with cards in other cities: London, England’s was $1.7 billion; Sydney, Australia’s was $1.23 billion; San Fransico’s in 1999 was $353 million; Chicago’s a year later was $505 million, according to figures published in the Toronto Star last week. The city also has assurances that city of Ottawa taxpayers won’t be on the hook for any costs related

to the Presto card if the technology doesn’t come together properly by April 2013. MacLaren still insists the city should cut its losses over the tapand-go card system and start over. “City council should drop it. It was sole-sourced, overpriced, didn’t work, never will – they’re better off going with the Gatineau system instead,” MacLaren said. El-Chantiry goes on the attack when it comes to MacLaren’s assertion that Presto cards will never work. “I don’t know what qualifications in technology he has to make that statement,” said the West CarletonMarch councillor. MacLaren questions why the government would have the governmental agency Metrolinx consult for a transit card system when it did dubious work on the eHealth – a system to create electron health records. But he doesn’t question the need for a card system. “It’s a sound concept,” he said. “All transit commissions need a oneswipe system. You need something that will let you ride from one end of Toronto to another. There’s six other private companies out there that have the technology right now.” MacLaren is asking Ontario’s auditor general to investigate the Ottawa sole-source contract with Presto. He continues to insist the province threatened to withhold $32.5 million in provincial gas tax funding if the city didn’t award the transit payment

One dollar becomes six to help eliminate polio John Curry

john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - How does $1 become $6? Easy. Just donate the money to the Rotary Club of Ottawa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Stittsville to support Rotaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s End Polio Now campaign. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right! A one dollar donation can grow to six dollars thanks to a couple of commitments that have been made.

First of all, the Rotary Club of Ottawa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Stittsville has committed to matching the ďŹ rst $1,600 donated by members of the public to the End Polio Now campaign. So, your $100, for instance, is now $200. But thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more. The federal government, through the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), will match any donations made to Rotary for this cause. So, the $200 now be-

comes $400. And, on top of this, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has made the same offer, so add another $200 to those Rotary funds, bringing the total to $600. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how a $100 initial donation, for instance, becomes $600. It is matched by the Rotary Club of Ottawa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Stittsville (up to $1,600). This amount is then doubled by CIDA and then also doubled by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. There is

a one million dollar cap on the CIDA and Gates matching funds donations. This offer of matching funds from CIDA and the Gates Foundation is good until March 1, 2013. This End Polio Now campaign is meant to be a ďŹ nal push to get rid of polio in the world. This will be happening in the last three countries in the world where polio is still epidemic â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Nigeria, Afghanistan and Pakistan. All donations of $20 or more will

be issued an income tax receipt as well. Those wishing to donate to help eradicate polio in the world once and for all should send cheques to 28 Renshaw Avenue, Stittsville, Ont. K2S 1G9. The cheques should be made payable to the Rotary Club of Ottawa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Stittsville. For more information, please contact Rotary Club of Ottawa - Stittsville member Leo Maiorino at 613371-6975.

More than a book about stained glass windows Special to the News

EMC news - â&#x20AC;&#x153;Goulbourn Stained Glassâ&#x20AC;? is a new Goulbourn Township Historical Society book authored by Bernie Shaw. In her foreword to the book, Historical Society president Barbara Bottriell notea that this was more than a book about stained glass windows. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a book about windows,â&#x20AC;? she writes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but it is really about the families to whom the windows were dedicated and their ancestors who first crossed the seas to come to GoulR0011834253/1227

bourn Township.â&#x20AC;? The connection of each window to Goulbourn township is outlined in the book. Author Bernie Shaw, in his preface to the book, notes that the book attempts to give a representative picture of early life in Goulbourn Township illustrated through the lives of the families remembered in the church window memorials. Churches and their stained glass windows which are dealt with in the book include Stittsville United Church, St. Thomas Anglican

Church and St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Presbyterian Church, all in Stittsville; St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church, St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Anglican Church and St. Philip Catholic Church, all in Richmond; St. Clare Catholic Church at Dwyer Hill; Munster United Church and St. Stephen Anglican Church (now the Munster branch of the Ottawa Public library) in Munster; and Christ Church Anglican, Ashton United Church and Melville Presbyterian Church (now a private residence), all in Ashton. The book also contained a brief description

of the history of church stained glass windows as well as a map showing the location of the various churches in Goulbourn. The book features full colour photos of 105 stained glass windows found in Goulbourn churches. It is selling for $20 a copy and can be ordered with a cheque sent by mail to the Goulbourn Township Historical Society, P.O. Box 621, Stittsville, Ontario K2S 1A7. The cheque should also include $3 for postage for one copy or $5 for postage for two copies.

Santa Claus visits Rotary Club meeting john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - Santa Claus paid his annual pre-Christmas visit to the Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville on Tuesday, Dec. 18. And while there, he got to meet Lt. Col. Douglas Martin, the Canadian military man who tracked Santa’s Christmas Eve travels around the world in the four year period of 2001-2005. That’s when Lt. Col. Martin was stationed at NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command) headquarters in Colorado Springs in the United States where he was in charge of the Santa tracking operations, something that NORAD has been doing for over half a century. Lt. Col. Martin told those at the Rotary meeting that “Santa cams” in numerous countries capture images of Santa as he goes through them on his Christmas Eve travels. He said that NORAD is able to track Santa’s movements on Christmas Eve thanks to the use of satellites which can detect infra-red light. Usually these satellites are looking for infra-red light caused by missile launches but infra-red light is also produced by Rudolph’s red nose, so the satellites are able to pick up on this and easily locate the position of Santa’s sleigh. Lt. Col. Martin noted that children can phone NORAD on Christmas Eve and get the most current information on where Santa is on his around the world travels. He said that 60 to 70 volunteers at NORAD answer these phone inquiries that evening. The phone line is 1-877-HI-NORAD while there is also a website at www.noradsanta.org. And just as Lt. Col. Martin was finishing up his remarks about Santa and NORAD, well, who should appear at this Rotary meeting at the Stittsville Villa Retirement Community’s meeting room but the jolly gentleman himself, ringing his Christmas bells and accompanied by his faithful elf Helene. Santa then distributed gifts to all of the youth at the meeting, having each one sit on his knee as he chatted with them and then gave each one a present. And Santa had his sense of humour with him at this early morning event. As four from the Bell family – Chelsea, Jessica, Holly and Ed – made their way to his knee, he was heard to remark that there were more bells there at the event than are found on a Christmas tree. But Santa wasn’t laughing, although everyone else was, when Ed Bell, who works part-time at Tim Hortons, was asked what he wants for Christmas and someone shouted out “A Tim Hortons franchise.” We don’t know if Santa has the power to

give these away. Santa must have felt a little better when Sam Spriggs, in his wish list, said that he was hoping for a laptop for Christmas. Santa seemed much more comfortable with this request. After distributing gifts to all of the youth present and also chatting with a couple of Rotary adults, Santa was off to join Rotary Club member Leo Maiorino in a karaoke singalong in the adjacent lounge area at the Stittsville Villa Retirement Community. Santa even did some dancing as Leo led the Villa residents in the lounge area in some Christmas caroling with such

songs as “Joy to the World.” And then, just as quickly as he had arrived, jolly Santa was gone, off to continue preparations for his world-wide travels on Christmas Eve, while the Christmas singing continued in the lounge area.

What was left of the Christmas tree was dragged out to the back of the woodshed. Standing in the kitchen, in the farthest corner away from the Findlay Oval, was not enough to save the sprigs of the Spruce tree, most of which had been swept up and fed into the fire box. The decorations, loops of silver rope saved year after year, the clip-on candle holders which always terrified Mother, so sure was she the whole place would go up in smoke, and the few felt animals we attached to the branches, were finally wrapped in issues of the Renfrew Mercury and packed away for another year. The house was back to normal and a new year was beginning. It was time to get back to the Saturday night house parties. In the summer time, most of the community activities centred around the church, but in the winter socializing was done in the homes. I loved the Saturday night house parties. No formal invitations were necessary and it was beyond me how anyone knew where the party was being held. My much older and wiser sister, Audrey, said she was sure Central would simply start ringing everyone who had a phone and told them where the next party was taking place. At that time in my life, I thought that was a perfect explanation. When the party was at our house, everything movable was shoved against the kitchen walls to make way for the square dancers. Of course the house had to be cleaned from top to bottom too. Even the bedrooms upstairs had to be readied -- thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where the youngest of us ended up. Neighbours started coming early in the evening. Horses and sleighs lined up in the yard. None had to be tied as they seemed to know they were expected to stay put, which always amazed me. Enough food would be brought to feed half of Renfrew County. Sandwiches filled 11-quart baskets which had been lined with spanking clean flour bag tea towels. These were of the simplest kind: roast pork, roast beef, egg salad - canned salmon was unheard of. Anyone who wanted to be real fancing brought bologna which was my very favourite. Slab cakes and molasses cookies were taken out to the summer kitchen to keep chilled and covered with more tea towels.

Saturday night house party was a way of life Before anyone arrived, Mother would have the big shiny kettle boiling and at least two white aluminum tea pots simmering with green tea on the back of the stove. Of course there were no clothes closets, so the coats were piled on the nearest bed and it wlways amazed me that no one went home wearing some elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coat. Around the kitchen stove, galoshes and rubber boots were kept warm for the trip home. At our house, the baking table was moved into the parlour for euchre and another game was always going on around the old pine table in the kitchen. There was much pounding of fists, loud laughing and frivolity at both tables and I often wondered if they took the game as seriously as I thought they did. Music filled the house. Uncle Alec Thom would bring his fiffle. Mother would take her mouth organ out of its blue velvet box. Father would grab two spoons. One of the Beam boys would tune up his guitar and there was always someone ready to call for a square. The youngest of us would be upstairs in a bedroom playing Parcheesi or jacks and as the night wore on, it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t unusual for five or six of us to stretch out crossways on a bed and fall asleep. When the Saturday night house party was at a neighbourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home and I was one of the ones bedded down, it was a mystery to me how I would wake up the next morning in my own bed. I would have no recollection of being carried out to the sleigh, or of being put into my bed. I would be wearing the same clothes I had worn that evening. The only thing missing would be my galoshes, so I often didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to get dressed for church the next morning. When the party was at our house, I always hoped there would be some cookies or slab cake left to be enjoyed on Sunday, but there wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a crumb of left. By Sunday morning, everything in the kitchen would be back to normal. Mother and Audrey would have washed the dishes, and the furniture would all be back in place. The parlour door would once again be closed and a braided mat rolled up against it. There was no need to heat a room that was never used in the winter time except for the Saturday night house party. And so it went all winter long. As normal as going to church every Sunday or going into Renfrew to peddle chickens and butter, the Saturday night house party was a way of life back in those Depression years. The price was right too.

FOOD & NEWS

Make food safety part of your holiday menu EMC lifestyle - Whether you are eating at home or at one of the city’s many restaurants, Ottawa Public Health is reminding residents to keep food safety top of mind during this busy and festive time of year. Residents can avoid food-borne illness by following safe food handling, storage and cooking practices at home, and by choosing restaurants that consistently meet safety guidelines. Health Canada estimates that there are between 11 and 13 million cases of food-borne illness in Canada every year. Foodborne illness –sometimes called food poisoning– usually results from eating food or drinking water contaminated by diseasecausing bacteria or the toxins they produce. Here are some tips that will make this holiday season safer for you, your loved ones and your guests. Preparation, thawing, storage and sanitation: * Wash your hands for at least 15 seconds with soap and water, especially after sneezing, smoking, coughing, using the washroom, touching pets, changing diapers, or touching raw meats or eggs. * Wash all vegetables and fruits, including those that you peel or cut, such as melons, oranges and cucumbers. * Thaw foods in the refrigerator. Turkey or chicken should be thawed in the refrigerator and never at room temperature. * Be sure to cover and store raw meat or marinades on the bottom shelf of your refrigerator to avoid spilling liquids on ready-to-eat foods. * Wash, rinse and sanitize utensils, cutting boards and food preparation surfaces and be sure to use separate work areas to avoid cross-contamination of raw and ready-to-eat foods. Remember, your hands can also transfer bacteria from raw to cooked foods. Cooking: Cook all ground beef, pork and fish products until it registers an internal temperature of 71 C (158 F) on a cooking thermometer for 15 seconds. Turkey and stuffing: * Cook turkey and stuffing separately. * Cook turkey until it registers an internal temperature of 82 C (180 F) on a cooking thermometer for 15 seconds. * Refrigerate leftovers within two hours of cooking. Raw egg products: Prepare foods that may contain raw eggs, such as eggnog, hollandaise sauce and caesar salad dressing, fresh every day using pasteurized eggs.

Meat, soft cheeses and appetizers: * Keep cold foods such as cheese and meat platters at a temperature of 4 C (40 F) or below. Tip: Place the serving dish over cubed or crushed ice. * Keep hot foods such as appetizers at a temperature of 60 C (140 F) or above. Tip: Use a hot plate, slow cooker or chafing dish. Dining out Did you know that Ottawa Public Health restaurant inspections are posted online? Inspectors visit food establishments, both on a routine and complaint related basis, to make sure any

deficiencies are quickly corrected, and prepare a report about each visit. This report is posted online shortly after the inspection and includes any deficiencies found at the establishment. Food poisoning can feel like the flu. Symptoms may include stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and/or fever. If you suspect that your health has been compromised because of food, contact your family doctor or visit a walk-in medical clinic. For more food safety tips, visit ottawa.ca or to report a suspected food-borne illness call Ottawa Public Health information at 613-580-6744 (TTY: 613-580-9656).

HISTORY

Campgrounds operated from 1890 to 1974 John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - Stittsville was a summertime destination for a host of people for over three quarters of a century. These were the people, both young and old, from near and far, who attended religious camp meetings in Stittsville. Such camp meetings were an outgrowth of the development of charismatic wings of major religious denominations which were rooted in the socalled Holiness Movement of the last half of the 19th century and first part of the 20th century. This Holiness Movement, originating very much in Methodism, began in the 1850’s in the United States, based on a Wesleyan doctrine of Christian perfection. Adherents of this Holiness Movement sponsored “holiness” camp revival meetings. This Holiness Movement should not be mistaken for the Holiness Movement Church founded by Rev. Ralph Horner which was instrumental in formalizing and creating the annual camp meetings in Stittsville. The Holiness Movement Church of Rev. Horner was one of many groups of adherents of the Holiness Movement who, searching for personal holiness, left main line Protestantism, especially Methodism, in the 1890’s. Camp meetings were preferred by these Holiness Movement adherents probably for a number of reasons, not the least of which that the size of the crowds drawn to these camp meetings was far too large for any permanent church building. In addition, as charismatic, evangelism based religions, these groups

were not tied to ritual and hence a church building and its surroundings were not as important to them. It was more in keeping with their beliefs that they meet in a tent, surrounded by nature. And, perhaps most importantly, these camp meetings were enjoyable for those attending. The campgrounds in Stittsville are now just a memory, an area of Stittsville which now includes houses and sports fields. But from 1890 to 1974, these campgrounds, first known as the Holiness Church campgrounds and, after 1959, as the Free Methodist campgrounds, were a religious summer recluse for many. This area of Stittsville was probably used for religious camp gatherings prior to 1890. These campgrounds eventually extended from Manchester Street through to Poole Creek. The site is now the location of Long Meadow Way and Forest Heights Avenue as well as the soccer pitch and second ball field at Alexander Grove park. The campgrounds had their initial development with the founding of the Holiness Movement Church in Canada, an evangelistic movement founded by Rev. Ralph Horner which had its roots in the Ottawa area and eventually spread over much of the world. A merger in 1958 of the Holiness Movement and the Free Methodist Church, with the continuation of the name Free Methodist Church, saw the campgrounds in Stittsville come under the jurisdiction of the Free Methodist Church. In the early days of the campgrounds, starting in the

It was then replaced by a steel frame building. 1890’s, a small but faithful group of Holiness Movement adherents converged on the site. The camp at that time was held in July, with both farm and city folk attending. Tents were set up on the grounds, along with a large tent in which main services were held each day of the camp meeting. Special speakers and singers were brought in for these services. The initial site of the campgrounds was adjacent to Manchester Street. Among its permanent buildings were a parsonage, a barn and an open shed for horses.

As time went on, strong bonds of friendship grew up among those who attended the camp meetings and gradually regularly-attending families erected small cottages on the site. The first row of these cottages, leading in from the gate on Manchester Street, included those of families such as the McGregors, Roes, Pritchards and Warrens. These camp meetings in Stittsville became more popular with the advent of the 20th century and this brought about the need to purchase more property which the Holiness Movement Church did in both 1905 at a cost of $250 and again in 1911 at a cost of $600. The property holdings were increased to about 35 acres in total at a later date, with the site extending northward to Poole Creek. The first meeting tent was replaced by a larger one on the site. A pathway ran from the campgrounds site to the Holiness Church which was

on a hill along Stittsville Main Street. The property for this church was purchased by the Holiness Church in 1898. This building still stands today, having housed MacDougall Sales and Services for years and later Captain Sandy’s Travel and still is used for commercial uses. More and more cottages were built on the campgrounds’ site as the years went by, reaching over 20 at one point. A few of the cottages, such as the Manchester family cottage, were two storey buildings. It developed that mothers and children would spend the summer at the campgrounds with the fathers joining them on the weekends, arriving either by train or by car. The campgrounds had a dining tent for meals and later a dining hall building was constructed. In the summer of 1926, the Holiness Church built a meeting place or tabernacle on the site to replace the use of a meeting tent. The

building featured ventilation in the roof which could be opened during the warm summer services. This wooden tabernacle served for more than 40 years before the roof collapsed under heavy snow. A steel frame building was then erected which was removed after the 1974 camp season when the campgrounds was closed down by the Free Methodist Church. The Free Methodist Church had property in the Picton area to use as a large central summer campground, making the Stittsville campgrounds and five other similar camps surplus to its needs. The summer activity at the Stittsville campgrounds had increased after the merger of the Holiness Movement Church with the Free Methodist Church in 1959. In 1961, new washrooms and showers were built at the campgrounds at a cost of more than $10,000. A 30 foot by 60 foot swimming pool with change rooms was also built on the site as the Mapledene youth camps, which were formerly held at a Brockville site, were transferred to the Stittsville campgrounds. Fire had damaged the facilities at the Free Methodist Church camp in Brockville, with the result that its operation, including its Mapledene youth camps, were transferred to the Stittsville site. In addition, another tabernacle was erected at the Stittsville site for youth work, crafts and other programs. A number of new cottages also sprung up on the site. In these Mapledene youth camps, boys and girls in groups of 100 to 125 met for periods of a week to ten days during the summer season. As many as 50 tents were pitched on the grounds to house these young people. See FREE METHODIST, page 35

Free Methodist campgrounds Continued from page 34

A full program of camp activities was provided, including crafts, religious education, swimming and sports of all kinds. The program would normally consist of Bible study and crafts in the mornings, with recreation including swimming in the afternoon and a worship service in the evening. These youth camps were attended by young people from many points not only in Ontario and Quebec but also in northern New York State. An aluminum youth centre was erected on the site for the use of these young people and a motel-type dormitory was built, named McFarlane Lodge in honour of Rev. Charles McFarlane of Smiths Falls who was a director of the Stittsville camp for many years. Space over the dining hall was also used as a dormitory. In 1952, a work party planted 1000 seedling trees at the Stittsville campgrounds. The construction of the swimming pool and some of these other campgrounds improvements were carried out through the sale of some of the campgrounds property by the Free Methodist Church.

Starting in 1967, the swimming pool was made available for use to village residents at certain times of the day. This tradition lasted until the campgrounds closed in 1974 and indeed was then carried on for two years by Goulbourn townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recreation department. However, vandalism at the isolated location forced abandonment of the pool and its swimming program. In 1979, Goulbourn township agreed to purchase eight and a half acres of the former Methodist campgrounds in Stittsville for $85,000. The purchase also gave the township four acres of land along Poole Creek as well as one and a half acres of land as the parkland allocation for a planned housing development for the rest of the acerage. The $85,000 used for this purchase came from the $113,000 received by the township from the new Amberwood Village development that was getting underway at that time. This $113,000 was a payment made in lieu of a parkland allocation in the Amberwood subdivision. The rest of the Methodist campgrounds acerage was eventually purchased from the Free Methodist Church by Rideau (Stolp) Homes which developed a 66 lot subdivision on the site. Once the campgrounds in Stittsville closed after the 1974 season, the various buildings and cottages were removed from the site over the next couple of years. A fire caused severe damage to one of the remaining cottages while vandalism did cause damage to some of the remaining structures. Although the Free Methodist Churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s camp at Bloomfield in the Picton area has now replaced the Stittsville campgrounds, its development benefited from the Stittsville site. In 1990, on the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Stittsville campgrounds, a new motel was dedicated at this Wesley Acres Camp at Bloomfield. This motel was built thanks to funds from the earlier sale of the Stittsville campgrounds.

DID YOU KNOW? CENTENNIAL FEVER Like many communities across Canada, Stittsville wanted to celebrate the 1967 centennial in a big way. To raise money for its activities, people decided to put on a musical. “Practically everybody in town took part,” remembers Kay Garvie who wrote many of the skits for the show. It was called “Confounded Confederation” and a resident named Corrie Johnson wrote some of the music. Margaret MacDougall, organist at the United Church, played all the music for the items in the show, plus the numbers in between. It took place in 1964 in the auditorium of Stittsville Public School and it was a great success. Clive Morris chaired the Centennial year committee and his enthusiasm and drive contributed a great deal to the success of all activities. One of the activities that started 1967 off was a torch relay, with Stittsville boys lighting a torch from the Centennial Flame in Ottawa and running back all the way to Stittsville, each boy running a leg and handing it off to the next boy until it arrived safely back in the village. The torch was used to light a Centennial flame in Stittsville. *Information regarding the “Did you know…” story was taken from the book Stittsville a Sense of Place by Barbara Bottriell, 1998. As your Councillor, I always welcome your input and ideas on how we can sustain and improve Stittsville. Please be advised that my office is now closed for the holidays and will re-open on Friday January 4th, 2013. For all municipal issues, especially snow concerns requiring an immediate response, please contact the City’s Call Centre by phoning 3-1-1, emailing 311@ottawa.ca, or visiting www.serviceottawa.ca. Staff are on hand to assist you. You are also welcome to phone my office at 613-580-2476 and leave a phone message, as I will be checking my messages daily throughout the holidays. R0011820644/1220
