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.

EMC news – Jack MacLaren is betting that selling off Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) won’t land his Progressive Conservative party in hot water with legal authorities. MacLaren’s boss, PC leader Tim Hudak, made public last month an election-style white paper called “Paths to Prosperity�. He proposes changes to health care, energy production, labour relations, and items such as selling off the LCBO and OLG.

2012 a year filled with myriad of memories

January Scottish Night at St. Andrews United Church in Fitzroy is held Saturday, Jan. 21. Bill Munro honours Scottish poet Robert Burns with a recitation of Address to a Haggis.

PC’s would still collect tax revenue Continued from front

However, critics claim privatizing OLG would be illegal, since the Criminal Code of Canada says gambling must be “conducted and managed” by the province. MacLaren doubts that will make a difference. “I don’t think it is illegal,” MacLaren said. “We would have the regulatory authority. All the laws and regulations would remain.” He said a PC government, which could come as early as spring if the Liberals call an election and lose, would continue to collect significant tax revenue from a privatized OLG. But MacLaren shrugs his shoulders at the notion that 9,000 people working in the province’s casinos would be paid less were a private owner to take over. “We don’t know they are going to pay them less,” he said. OLG is in the midst of selling off almost every facet of its operation. The PCs would disband the foreign-owned monopoly behind the Beer Store. They would also allow corner stores to sell beer and wine, an idea first proposed in the mid-1980s by Liberal leader David Paterson. More contentious is their idea to sell off the

LCBO, which brings an added $1.6 billion to government coffers. After the white paper was made public, the PCs admitted they had no idea how much more money the province stood to gain from privatizing the LCBO. A 2005 report commissioned by the Liberal government, penned by the Beverage Alcohol System Review Panel, concluded that greater competition would bring in about $200 million or more per year. Social opponents say boosting alcohol sales will lead to greater domestic violence, drunk driving accidents and more. Fiscal opponents say selling off a revenue generator is shortterm gain for long-term pain. Champions of the middle class say good-paying LCBO jobs, some of the best jobs in rural Ontario these days, would be replaced by lower end convenience store clerk jobs. Still, according to the Canadian Taxpayer Federation, the number of liquor stores in Alberta has increased by 613 per cent since privatization came into effect in 1993. Revenue in Alberta went from $625 million (when adjusted to today’s dollars) to $687 million, said Derek Fildebrandt, Alberta director of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation.

As 200 of Erin Vance’s friends, family members, coworkers and neighbours gathered in Carp April 21 to support her young sons, the band played the familiar lines of a Blue Rodeo song. “And I want all the world to know, that your love’s all I need,” was the line from Lost Together.

A man who dedicated most of his adult life to his community will have his efforts recognized with a park dedication.

Local businessman vice-chair of umbrella BIA group Sabine Gibbins sabine.gibbins@metroland.com

EMC news – A West Carleton resident and entrepreneur will ensure the rural area’s voice is not overlooked. Back in October, Ottawa Business Improvement Areas met with Mayor Jim Watson and West Carleton-March Coun. and deputy mayor Eli El-Chantiry to introduce a new organization: the Ottawa Council of BIAs. Now, John Phillips of the Carp Road Corridor BIA and of West Capital Developments is stepping into the role of vice-chair for the city-wide organization. The organization was originally formed to present a unified voice on city-wide issues and to facilitate a more efficient and effective partnership with the City of Ottawa., he said. The organization is focused on enhancing the importance and benefit of BIAs to city council, city staff and the public at large, and the roles they play in economic development and the ongoing vibrancy of Ottawa’s commercial districts. Altogether, the organization represents over 6,000 businesses in the city of Ottawa with a tax base projected at tens of millions of dollars. Newly elected chair, Donna Holtom of the Downtown

Rideau BIA, and Phillips both presented the mission statement and guiding principles of the organization to the city in October. Holtom highlighted key priorities for the upcoming year beneficial to both the city and the BIAs. These include developing a concrete framework of the relationship with the city reflecting a true partnership to engage the resources of council in making Ottawa a better place to live and do business. Another important facet, they noted, was to build a transparent and collaborative partnership in policy development with direct involvement in other broader boards that deal with tourism, economic development, investment, and infrastructure projects. “The strong representation we have seen over the past few months from the Ottawa BIAs is indicative of the high level of interest in accomplishing these goals and in a timely manner,� said Phillips. “This is the area where the mayor’s commitment to the organization will go a long way in meeting this challenge.�

At the October meeting, he noted, all 18 Ottawa BIAs reached a unanimous decision to create a new organization to be called the “Ottawa Council of BIAs� or OCOBIA. “This new organization will serve as an important give-and-take connection to city staff and we need to ensure their participation is both sought and/or pro-

vided. “I committed at this meeting to continue and strengthen the city’s role in this collaborative process, and to put a system in place for this partnership to happen. OCOBIA asked that they be given an opportunity to engage in policy and by-law development at a sufficiently early stage to effectively provide useful input. And I have pledged the city’s full cooperation to initiate this two-way collaboration.�

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

D

ecember 2012 ended with a bang not a whimper. That is if you don’t count the moans and whines from various residents after they were hit with two big snowstorms and 50-plus centimetres of snow. Ottawa residents haven’t seen weather like this for years and it’s understandable that it will take some of us a little time to adjust. First and foremost, the inclement weather has been

accompanied by a rise in the cases of colds, the flu and other illnesses. But that is mostly a product of people huddling together inside and sharing their germs. The first part of any intelligent person’s survival guide for the Great Canadian Winter must begin with an old adage you probably heard from your mother: wash your hands. Wash them frequently. And if you’re sick, stay

home and recover. Many workaholics will show up at the office even while fending off a bad bout of the bubonic plaque. While their work ethic is commendable, it only serves to spread the sickness to coworkers. Stay home, rest up and return to work recharged and healthy. But the cold weather and heaps of white stuff aren’t all doom and gloom. Winter is a season of play

for ski and skating enthusiasts. Owners of ski hills in Quebec and Ontario are bubbling with jubilation over the recent snowfall. Skiing on real snow, you see, is a whole new experience compared to gliding down the artificial stuff. As for Canada’s national sport, volunteers across the country are out in force clearing the ice pads and outdoor rinks to make way for the legion of children hungering

for a game of scrimmage hockey. The average 10-year-old boy or girl’s eye’s light up when they see the thermometer dip below zero and hear that the roads are choked with snow. Of course that can only mean one thing. A school snow day and a morning spent chasing a piece of vulcanized rubber with their buddies on the local rink. January also sees the arrival of the Bell Capital Cup, bringing together hundreds of teams, both from Ontario and Quebec and other countries and thousands of atom-age

hockey players. This year, the cup features the Capital City Condors, a team with players with intellectual and physical disabilities. For these children, the winter and the opportunity to play hockey is a thing of joy. An emotion that can’t help translate to the hearts of volunteers who run the team and onlookers who watch them play. For those who hate the winter, let your Grinch hearts defrost a little and take notice of the opportunities that present themselves. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

Planning the great Canadian event CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

T

he thing about anticipating a great event is that the event is always great in anticipation. It’s only when it becomes a real event that it risks being disappointing. So bring on the 150th anniversary celebrations, Canada’s next big birthday, scheduled for 2017, unless government cutbacks cause it to be postponed. Already, the government is said to be putting out feelers to Canadians, asking them for ideas on how the event can be properly marked. According to reports, cross-country consultations are beginning this month. The aim is to make the 150th as memorable as the 100th was. Those who were there remember it as a pretty good one, but it might be different this time. It’s pretty difficult to imagine this government or any future one laying out the kind of dough that was spent in 1967. Expo 67 was only the biggest of many large expenditures. Don’t forget the hundreds of centennial projects that were built across the country. If not for the centennial there would be empty spaces where a lot of the arenas and concert halls are in Canadian cities. Not to say that our present-day governments, at all levels, are stingy, but is there another word that describes them better? Furthermore, our taxpayers are far less adventurous in spirit than they were in 1967. It’s with these facts in mind that we have to consider the contribution we will make to the cross-country consultations. In order to gain government acceptance, proposals to celebrate the 150th have to be, let’s say,

modest in scale. Better still, they have to include provisions for corporations to pay for them. So where does that leave us, here in the capital? Under different circumstances we might think of the 150th as the perfect occasion for the unveiling of the longdiscussed portrait gallery, which was once to be located on Wellington Street across from Parliament Hill. But we won’t get that now. Maybe, instead, a PowerPoint presentation sponsored by a bank. There are some possibilities in the idea of re-enactment. This year there were re-enactments of key battles in the War of 1812. Maybe some of that could be done in 2017, re-enactments of key moments in the national capital’s history, with due consideration of budgetary realities. Actors, as long as they are not paid too much, could portray Charlotte Whitton battling with city councillors, Thomas D’Arcy McGee breathing his last, Pierre Elliott Trudeau walking in the snow. Celebrations of this sort should also look forward. Peering into the future is always interesting. In 1967 it may have been imagined that the Ottawa of 2013 would have public transit flying through the air, hologram movies projected into the night sky and an enlightened government capable of anticipating the needs of the people. None of this has come true, but the exercise is still worth the effort. So let’s think about Ottawa 2117 as presented this year at Expo 17. Public transit flying through air, except in a tunnel. Hologram movies available to elite cable subscribers. Still no portrait gallery, but they’re thinking of using the last building in the city that isn’t a condo. In other 2117 developments, the 19-digit telephone number comes into effect, additional parking is on Mars and another bridge to the Quebec side still under review.

Road safety deserves more than a grain of salt To the editor: The recent dose of winter weather has brought to light a serious lack of standards with the maintenance and snow removal of the Highway 17 corridor between Arnprior and Ottawa. Comparatively to previous winters there has been one crucial difference: a lack of salt distribution. The condition of that stretch of the 17 was entirely substandard as a result. The final weekend before Christmas is always considered one of the busiest weekends of the year for motorists, and always the busiest of the winter. The lack of response by whoever is responsible for the maintenance of the highway must be addressed. It is important to note that the responsibility of the highway has changed hands. Previously the ministry would patrol the conditions of Highway 17 and call the plows out at first sight of snow or other hazardous weather. I know this because I am a former plow driver whom was responsible for plowing the stretch of Highway 17 between Calabogie Road and Galetta Side Road. This winter Highway 17 is no longer patrolled by the ministry trucks and they are not responsible for calling out the plows as a result of privatization. I now regularly commute between Arnprior and Ottawa where I work in the emergency services. I drove on Highway 17 several times last weekend and the lack of salt distribution was frustrating and created both life threatening as well as hazardous conditions for motorists. There are only two plausible reasons why the salting standards have changed so drastically to previous winters, they are environmental concern and cost savings. I list them as such because one will always precede the other and is usually related. In past years salt was distributed as needed on the

highway in order to create the safest driving conditions as possible for motorists travelling on the Trans-Canada Highway to and from the capital city of Canada. Presently, by using the green movement as a veil for cost savings measures as the government does only when it is beneficial to their bottom line our highways and life safety are being written off. I have heard the counter arguments to salt distribution and how we have been told that the road salt will affect our water table with contamination come the spring thaw, but I am just not buying that. What I have noticed however is a seriously decline of standards as a result of cost-saving measures when it comes to our roads. Take for instance something as simple as a snow fence. I remember growing up and seeing the orange fences spread all across the Ottawa Valley. It was a pro-active approach to preventing drifts in the winter which simply hardly exist these days. Thankfully there are farmers whom have the presence of mind and sense of community safety to plant a tree line at the edge of their fields where they coincide with highways to prevent the drifting. The past winter storm was both intense and a major task for snow removal crews. However when it comes to the Trans-Canada Highway the crews should be ready as they have been in the past and do all that is necessary to keep the highway operable and safe for all motorists. The past weekend and lack of salt distribution was entirely unacceptable especially on the busiest weekends of the year where people are trying to make it their destinations to celebrate Christmas with family.

Tips for safe winter driving EMC news - Driving during the winter months can be challenging, but it doesn’t have to be. CAA is reminding drivers to check the forecast before heading out, dress for the weather and leave early to get to their destination safely. “Remember to remove all the snow and ice from your vehicle so you can see and others can see you,” said Silvana Aceto of CAA. “Be sure to slow down in the snow, leave extra space between vehicles and never pass a snowplow.” Snowplow safety tips: Leave room for snowplows. Remain a safe distance back. Never pass a snowplow.

New ID makes it harder for youth to buy liquor, cigarettes EMC news - Ontario is making it easier to identify when someone is of legal age when buying alcohol or tobacco. Beginning Jan. 1, 2013, a new identifier on Ontario driver’s licences and photo cards will clearly show when card holders turn 19. The identifier will read “age 19” followed by the exact date the card holder turns 19, all in bold

letters. It will be located near the bottom of the card, beside the date of birth. “Our government has heard from the retail sector and public health units across Ontario,” said transportation minister Bob Chiarelli. “We’ve taken action to keep youth in Ontario safe by including the date a person is 19 years of age on Ontario’s driver’s licence and photo cards.”

Helping prevent youth from smoking and drinking is part of the McGuinty government’s plan to keep families safe and healthy, at home and on the road. “Ontario’s new age identification on driver’s licences and photo cards is just one more way we are helping to reduce under-age smoking and drinking and keep our roads safe.” Said Dwight Duncan, Minister of Government Ser-

vices. Existing cardholders who wish to have the identifier applied to their card can pay a replacement fee to have a new card issued. Approximately 150,000 cards are issued each year to drivers under the age of 19. Drivers under 19 years of age who are drinking are two times more likely to be involved in a fatal collision compared to older drivers.

Exciting bird encounters on Boxing Day in Pakenham EMC lifestyle - The longawaited day ďŹ nally arrived. It came with below-average temperatures and above-average snow cover. That day was, of course, the annual PakenhamArnprior Christmas Bird Count, which took place on Boxing Day. I have done this count for 47 consecutive years. The ďŹ rst remains vividly etched in my Michael Runtz mind. I was 12 years old and accompanied Bud Levy and his enNature’s Way tourage. Bud owned the Arnprior Guide (there were two Arnprior papers then, the Arnprior Chronicle being the other) and had advertised the count in his column: “Strictly for the Birdsâ€? written under the alias “Hawkeye.â€? The count participants met at the newspaper’s ofďŹ ce on John Street for an obligatory group photo before the 9 a.m. start. In recent years by 9 o’clock I would have been counting birds for at least three hours. This count was no exception. At 6:15 a.m. I met up with Ryan Zimmerling, Carl Leesti, and Samantha, Jessica and Donna Carter; it was Ryan’s 23rd count but the ďŹ rst for the others. After unsuccessfully trying to get owls to call back to imitations, by ďŹ rst light we stood beside a marsh in the Nopiming Game Preserve near Galetta. Here I called for owls but this time Samantha, who is 15 years old, noticed a large bird y into conifers across the marsh. A few minutes later we were admiring a Barred Owl perched in a pine. The lovely bird ew overhead before retreating into the forest for the day. We worked our way through the woods to Marshall Bay. The day was cold (-18° when we started) but without wind it was quite pleasant. Ryan and I were amazed how quiet the woods were compared to previous counts; chickadees were scarce and ďŹ nches near absent. A couple of hours later we reached the creek that ows through the marsh where our walk began. Once again Samantha spotted a large bird. When I looked through binoculars I was amazed to see a Great Gray Owl, a bird I have never seen on any Christmas Bird Count. It was only the ďŹ fth time this northern bird was encountered on this Count. Later in Galetta we joined Brianna and Mikayla McAteer, young sisters who were recording the birds near their home. A CBC reporter met

At day’s end Marilyn Snedden graciously hosted the count compilation at her home near Blakeney. Overall, the 30+ observers tallied 54 species, an average number for the count. Samantha’s Great Gray Owl was the bird of the count. Other highlights included 2 Red-bellied Woodpeckers (a record high count), 2 Golden Eagles (also a record high), a Belted KingďŹ sher, a Red-breasted Merganser, and 4 Hoary Redpolls, Record counts were also taken for Barred Owls (6), Northern Cardinals (51), and American Crows and Common Ravens (tallies are being reviewed for these two). Full results will be posted on the Macnamara Field Naturalists’ Club website (mfnc.ca). Next year’s count is only 51 weeks away. The countdown has already begun!

The Year in Review takes a look at one’s journey in time Whether it was ‘annus horribilis’ or not, it’s important to sit back as the year wraps up, and take stock of your situation. On the Fisher Farm, 2012 was a pretty good year. We had calves born on schedule in winter, and although I had to keep one of them alive with a bottle because it wouldn’t suckle from its mama, they all thrived through the summer and fall until it was time to go to market. We had lambs born in spring, which is when I like them to be born; not in winter when you are constantly battling ice. Ice takes over the water buckets in the lambing room before the ewes have had their fill. Ice freezes the barn doors shut so we can’t get in to feed in the morning. Ice freezes the water hose so we can’t refill the water troughs when they are empty. Spring is better for lambing, to be

sure.

DIANA FISHER Accidental Farmwife

We only lost one lamb to a coyote that we are aware of this year, and we only had four kittens born on the farm. That’s a pretty good reduction from last year, when we had 40. Operation spay/neuter was a success. As the grass greened all around us and the farm animals began taking care of themselves, it became time to shift our attention to weddings. Our daughter’s, and my sister’s. One in January and one in September. First came Anastasia. She planned the

whole thing pretty much on her own, on a shoestring budget, and it was impressive. I planted flowers in containers that could be easily shifted to the wedding site, and invitations were sent out for an important date three months into the future. We managed to buy and put away some hay in early summer, and that was a good thing. You never know what the season holds, but this year it didn’t hold much rain. Our land is low and a creek runs through it so we didn’t suf-

fer much but hay was pretty scarce all the same. Some farmers in Renfrew County are counting on the generosity of strangers out West for the hay that will get their animals through this winter. A winter that is shaping up to be a nasty one indeed. I would have been pretty sad to see the Farmer sell all our animals for lack of hay to feed them. Many farmers in Eastern Ontario had to do just that. I wonder if we sold all our animals if we would start over again? We saw a terrible accident take the life of a beloved high school teacher, friend and coach in June. The funeral for Ted Cooper became a celebration of life. It brought so many old friends together to say goodbye to the old North Grenville District High

School for the last time. Anastasia married Andrew on a 30+ degree day in the middle of a meadow. The memories of that day are scorched on our brains as the sun scorched our skin. The new Mr. and Mrs. Wiggins went to P.E.I. for their honeymoon and caught a 1000-lb tuna fish. Too bad it was out of season and they had to throw it back for someone else to catch. It would have been worth about $10,000. In any case, I think catching a big fish is a lucky sign. And later in the year the bride was digging for driftwood when she found a diamond ring on a beach along the St. Lawrence River. I’m hoping the lottery ticket she bought me is just as lucky as she is. We wrapped up the summer

of 2012 with our annual Fisher Farm party, and this year it fell right on our fifth anniversary. A perfect celebration of a commitment I would make all over again, in a heartbeat. My sister married her sweetheart and we celebrated as the power went out on September 8th. Dad was there in spirit, in the form of a double rainbow during the wedding reception. You bet your sweet Aunt Bippy we got pictures. We have so much to be thankful for, as the seasons go whizzing by. Daughters graduating, finding their way in life, one little success at a time. It’s time to look ahead to 2013, for its challenges and surprises are still mysteries to all of us. May it be ‘annus mirabilis’, a very good year for each of you.

Aces Day bring support to Arnprior food bank Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

EMC sports - The Arnprior and District Food Bank was the big winner when the Upper Ottawa Valley AA Aces Hockey Association hosted it first Aces Day at the Nick Smith Centre Saturday. The Aces used Aces Day as an opportunity to give back to the communities that support its players during the season. Seven games were played. The Major Bantam and Major Atom Aces teams took on the Rideau St. Lawrence Kings; The Minor Midget, Minor Peewee and Major Peewee teams challenged the Seaway Valley Rapids while the Ottawa Sting supplied the opposition for the Major Midget and Minor Bantam Aces. Friends and extended families of the Aces squads plus the visiting teams and general public were asked to bring non-perishable food items and support of the cause. “It’s a most difficult time of the year for the food bank to help people out, and leave them with a few dollars to buy some presents,� Kathy Tonkin of the Arnprior food bank said. “There are people out there that support a fam-

Bell Capital Cup sees 380 teams compete in annual tournament EMC sports - More than 6,500 players were set to hit the ice on hockey rinks in Ottawa for the 14th edition of the Bell Capital Cup. The competition ran from Dec. 28 to Jan. 1 with the opening ceremonies, Bell Capital Cup Fanfest and Esso Friendly Games held on Dec. 27 at the Bell Sensplex in Kanata. “This National Capital Region hockey extravaganza continues to showcase great minor hockey action, skills competitions and the Scotiabank/Canadian Tire all-star games,� said Scott Lawryk, general manager of the Bell Capital Cup, in a press release. The city played host to 380 teams from 19 divisions for the annual atom and peewee hockey tournament. This year, teams from Canada, China, Finland, Germany and the United States vied to hoist the Allen J. MacDonald Memorial Trophy. The Kourier-Standard went to press be-

fore the championship games were held. “On behalf of the board of directors and our many volunteers, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the minor hockey associations and administrators, players and families who continue to take part in the Bell Capital Cup and build on what is a splendid foundation for this annual holiday tournament,� said Lawryk. Last year’s Bell Capital Cup saw 410 teams participate from 19 divisions with more than 7,000 players. Teams from the United States, Finland, Germany and South Korea competed in the tournament.

WELL REPRESENTED

The Ottawa-area was well represented, with a number of teams competing for the top spot, including the Kanata Blazers, Nepean Raiders, Ottawa Sting, Ottawa Valley Silver Seven and Gloucester Rangers. “As always, the highlight of the festival (was) the 1,000plus hours of tournament games and the lasting memories they create for all participants,� said Lawryk.

Early start for Dunrobin’s outdoor curling club EMC sports - The weather had been crisp and cold for several nights yet the sun shone for the opening day of curling at The Dunrobin Seniors Outdoor Curling Club on Dec. 12, 2012. Many of the 18 members of the club gathered that opening morning for some fun curling and fellowship, a full 16 days earlier than ever before during their 10 years of curling on the outdoor sheet of ice. After the usual 12 ends of curling, the score was tied 1212. How fitting on 12-12-2012 that the score would be 12-12 and instead for stopping for hot coffee, they played another end to break the tie. “A great time was had by all,” said Bob Wilson, one of the original members. “That is what it’s all about.”

The opening day photo on the deck of the curling shack was chosen as “Photo of the Day” by the CTV Ottawa Evening News and also printed in an online curling site” ottawacurling.com. In the past few years the curling club has also been the subject of features on CTV on how to enjoy the Ottawa winters. Ask any of the members, the sun usually shines on the days they decide to curl outside.

Mall fire in Arnprior deemed suspicious Sherry Haaima Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

EMC news – A fire that broke out at the Arnprior Shopping Centre late morning Friday, Dec. 28, has been deemed suspicious. The Arnprior Fire Department responded in the late morning to a call that there was a fire in a rear area of the Hart Store located in the mall. Mall workers and shoppers were evacuated into the wintry temperatures as members of the fire department extinguished the fire and investigated the cause. The Fire Marshal’s Office and the Ontario Provincial Police are also involved in the investigation. John Currie of Arnprior, who was shopping in the store, was the first to spot the fire. “It was back near the toy department where the wool is kept,” said Currie. “I shouted ‘Fire!’ and told everybody to get out,” he said. “I saw the flames first and there was quite a bit of smoke. Peter Mosseau (mall manager) grabbed one fire extinguisher and I grabbed another,” said Currie. While the men tried to put out the fire, the smoke thickened. “It seemed to go out a bit, but there was a lot of smoke so we had to get out,” he said. Currie did not see what was

Mall employees and shoppers gather at the entrance to the Hart Store after the Shopping Centre was evacuated because of a suspicious fire. burning. “It seemed to be back where the wool was kept,” he said. The mall was expected to reopen Saturday with Hart remaining closed. High levels of carbon monoxide led to stores remaining closed for the rest of the day Friday. Because the fire began in a commodity shelving area where presumably there were no heaters or other devices located, it is being deemed suspicious. This is a case that underscores the importance of a sprinkler system, said Arnprior Fire Chief John Okum. “When crews arrived, the store was full of smoke,” said Okum. “The sprinkler system in Hart had been activated, which helped put out the fire.” Firefighters, who were faced with extensive

smoke, worked to evacuate the mall and then extinguish the fire. Then, the work of ridding the building of smoke began. “Members of the fire department immediately started to ventilate the building. They put fans in place to bring fresh air in and push the smoke out,” said Okum. Metro employees had been instructed to tarp their entrance and did so, saving the store from potential smoke damage. Business owners will begin to assess the smoke damage when stores reopen, said Okum. Volunteer firefighter turnout at the scene was on the low side, likely because of the holiday season, said Okum, who himself was on holidays but was in town and responded to the incident.

Lucky souls celebrate predicted apocalypse rocking out

PHOTOS BY SABINE GIBBINS/METROLAND

The Mayans predicted the end of the world, or the beginning of a new era, on Dec. 21, 2012. But the world lived on and all survived - especially those who ventured underground into the Diefenbunker , Canada’s Cold War Museum on the evening of Dec. 20 to rock out to favourite Canadian alternative rock band I Mother Earth. Organized by local Ottawa radio station 106.9 The Bear, 200 concert-goers piled into the protective walls of the bunker after nabbing tickets to the show through a contest. Diefenbunker staff were on hand to provide tours of the facility to the guests before the show. Above, attendees of the now historic rock concert try to get the perfect shot as I Mother Earth jams on stage during their first song.

Bruce Gordon, bassist for I Mother Earth, performs during one of the band’s songs. I Mother Earth played fan favourites songs such as One More Astronaut and We Got The Love.

Brian Byrne, lead singer of I Mother Earth, gets into the song during the band’s performance at the Diefenbunker. The Bear also had a photo shoot where guests could pull on different costumes and props, and choose an apocalyptic-themed background, to officially celebrate the end of the world as they knew it.

The concert was a truly unique event which provided an intimate setting for fans to get an up close and personal seat.

The courage within A Beaverbrook woman learns to accept herself following a double mastectomy in 2007 blair.edwards@metroland.com

EMC news - Five days after her surgery Linda Morin stood in front of a mirror and looked at herself. A long scar stretching from armpit to armpit marked the battlefield of her chest where doctors had cut away the cancer, and in the process, both of her breasts. Morin stared at her reflection for 10 seconds. “I said to myself, ‘I will never look at that person again,’” said Morin. “I hated myself. I just hated myself.” For the next two years, Morin refused to look at or touch her naked body. “Even when I was in the shower I wouldn’t touch myself – I couldn’t touch myself; it was disgusting,” she said. “I didn’t know her; I didn’t know that person. How dare that person make me look that way.” The then 45-year-old Beaverbrook woman sank into a depression. “I didn’t know who I was anymore,” she said. “I didn’t want to talk to anybody; I didn’t want to see anybody – I hated everybody. “Losing my breasts was a big thing for me. It was my womanhood.” DIAGNOSIS

The journey from the first suspicion of cancer to a double mastectomy was a whirlwind seven months in 2007. Morin had just moved into a new home in Beaverbrook with her 15- and 10-year-old sons, and she was busy with life, dividing her time working as an interior designer and home stager and raising her two boys. Her active lifestyle including running 10 kilometres a day and kickboxing. Early in 2007, Morin felt a pain in her chest, stretching down to her stomach and legs. “It came to a point that I couldn’t kickbox anymore because my breasts were so sore.”

She went in for an ultrasound and her gynecologist discovered cysts on her ovaries. The gynecologist told her she was pre-menopausal and that the cysts on her ovaries were affecting her hormones causing her breasts to feel sore. Morin was scheduled to go in for surgery to remove the cysts in April 2007 – but first her gynecologist wanted her to go in for a mammogram. Cancer ran in Morin’s family – her grandmother had died of the disease at the age of 68, her great-aunt at the age of 38. The mammogram showed a buildup of cysts in Morin’s chest. Two months after her surgery, Morin felt a lump the size of a prune in her left breast. She was sent for lumpectomy, where a doctor took a portion of her chest tissue to test. Two weeks later the results were in. It was cancer. “The moment that he told me that I had breast cancer I had thought that I was going to die,” said Morin. Here I am sitting by myself in the doctor’s office and I’m a single mother with two boys and now who’s going to take care of my kids?” Morin went home and sat with her two boys and broke the news. “Mom, are you going to die?” her youngest son asked. Morin didn’t know what to say. “I didn’t know whether I was going to live or die and I told him, ‘I don’t know, but I know we’re going to fight this and we’re going to fight this together.’” Morin’s mother broke down in tears when she heard the news. “My mother took me and held me really really tight like she couldn’t let go of me and she kept on saying, ‘God take me instead. Don’t let her die. Punish me.’” Telling your family you have cancer is one of the

woman’s dream is to lose her breasts.’” Morin sent her medical records to her sister in Los Angeles, Calif., whose husband was a breast surgeon and was friends with an oncologist. The oncologist told her that the reason the doctors in Ottawa couldn’t see the cancer clearly in the mammogram was that there was so much of it and the film was foggy. “You’d think because the film was foggy and they couldn’t see clearly that they would have asked me to have another mammogram,” said Morin. Instead, the Ottawa doctors told Morin to come back a year after surgery for a checkup. Her oncologist’s advice was simple and direct: the cancer was aggressive, so the chance of it spreading to the right breast was high. Morin needed a doublemastectomy, the oncologist told her. “It was a very difficult decision,” Morin said. “Now I’m losing my breasts and that’s a very important part of my womanhood.” But Morin didn’t want to live with the fear of having the cancer spreading and having to go through a cancer diagnosis all over again. “For me, the right decision was to remove both.” MICHELLE VALBERG

Linda Morin recently published her first book The Courage to Look Beyond, detailing her battle with breast cancer and her long road to accepting the loss of her breasts following a double-mastectomy. worst experiences in life, said Morin. “When I left the house I had said to myself that there’s no way that the cancer’s going to get me. I’m going to beat this thing. There’s no way that the cancer’s going to kill me.” During the next few weeks Morin met with two other surgeons seeking second and third opinions. One doctor advised her to remove only part of her breast, saying she was too young to lose it entirely. Morin’s boyfriend was excited by the advice. But Morin was worried – there was a 20 per cent chance

the cancer would return and spread to her right breast. “Oh you just want to have your boobs cut off,” her boyfriend said. Morin looked at him dumbfounded. “I just wanted to punch him because I said, ‘Yeah, every

One Call bill protects homeowners, buried services sures homeowners, surveyors and contractors alike can trust that all underground utilities at the location of a dig will be marked, eliminating the need for the many time-consuming calls that currently must be made to utility owners and operators. The burden of co-ordinating locates among multiple utility providers often stalls progress, consumes valuable resources, and increases project costs. These costs ultimately get passed on to consumers and taxpayers.

EMC news – Call before you dig. And now there’s a single number for all information on buried services. The Ontario Underground Infrastructure NotiďŹ cation System Act has received Royal Assent, the ďŹ nal step in becoming provincial law. It establishes a not-for-proďŹ t, single pointof-contact call system for all underground infrastructure location services in Ontario. The new industry-led One Call system en-

Economic analysts estimate that failing to locate all underground and overhead utilities results in unnecessary costs passed on to utility customers and municipal taxpayers totalling nearly $39 million each year. This is in addition to the lost revenue, productivity, and efďŹ ciency for businesses of all sizes. Yet the economic beneďŹ ts created through a One Call system are secondary to the more important increase in safety for those homeown-

ers and labourers living and working near the location of a dig. Public and worker safety are at serious and signiďŹ cant risk when utility lines such as buried natural gas pipelines, hydro lines, or sewer and water mains are struck and damaged because homeowners, contractors, landscapers and other excavators do not obtain the precise location of these utilities before they dig. In 2010 alone, there were almost 3,200 natural gas line breaks in Ontario.

Family stays close during transfer to operating room Continued from Page 25

Her mother and brother held her hand as she was transferred to the operating room. When Morin woke up in her hospital room she asked to be alone. “I wanted to touch my chest,� she said. “I wanted to see what was there. How was I going to look? How was it going to feel?� Her arms felt heavy and numb as she moved a hand to her chest. “That was a shock,� she said. “I knew the moment I touched my chest, I knew I was never going to be the same person again. I knew that my life was completely different now.� Morin’s long road to recovery started with a complete change to her diet – breads, fried foods and sugary treats were out, replaced with vegetable and fruit juices, fish, soy and other healthy sources of protein. Morin’s mother had bought a twin-gear juicer for her. “In five days I felt like a new person,� said Morin. “I didn’t feel sick anymore.� Soon, Morin was jogging, walking and exercising again. “I felt really good for almost a year.� Then the stomach and leg pains returned. An ultrasound showed cysts had returned to her ovaries – but were they cancerous? Morin was worried the “whole nightmare was starting again.� The doctors scheduled a full laparoscopic hysterectomy, removing both her ovaries. Morin told her doctors that if during the operation they discovered the cancer had spread throughout her body to “close me up and let me go home and let me die at home.� In the weeks leading up to the surgery, Morin spoke to a woman who had used juicing to help her recover from cancer. The woman told Morin to drink six ounces of wheat grass on an empty stomach everyday. Four days before her surgery in December 2008, doctors ran tests again on Morin’s ovaries. “I don’t know what you did,� said her doctor. “There’s absolutely no blood in your urine. Your white blood cell counts are normal. Your pap test is normal. Everything is

normal – what did you do?� Morin went ahead with the surgery, but she knew that if they discovered cancer in her body there wouldn’t be much of it and that she could beat it. Following the surgery, the doctors tested the removed cysts and there was no cancer. “I’ve been cancer free ever since,� said Morin. Morin’s road to spiritual renewal took much longer than her physical recovery. In 2008, Morin had developed a strong friendship with a man who had been diagnosed with colon cancer. She had known the man since she was nine years old. “He was all by himself. I promised to take care of him.� Three months after her hysterectomy, Morin learned that her boyfriend was seeing another woman. Her boyfriend’s new girlfriend met with Morin and told her, “I let him touch my breasts since you don’t have any.� That same day, Morin’s friend who had colon cancer was taken to hospital where he died three days later. “I had to deal with losing my partner and now losing my best friend all at the same time,� said Morin. “So I didn’t have time to think of me.� Morin decided to visit the Hippocrates Health Institute in West Palm Beach, Fla., an organization that promoted natural and alternative health care. Morin attended a seminar given by a doctor from Paris who educates other physicians about lymphedema, a medical condition caused by injury, trauma or congenital defects in the lymphatic system. Morin told the doctor she was still swollen and sore following her surgeries. The doctor asked Morin to remove her top. “I can’t remove my top. There’s 75 people in the room,� said Morin. “He said, ‘Well, this is only way I can examine you.’� Morin looked at the crowd of people in the room. “This little voice inside me said, ‘Linda do it.’ “I said, ‘Is everybody ready?’ and I removed my top. The room was so silent you could have heard a pin drop. I could hear my heart beating. “I just looked at everybody but the reaction I had wasn’t the reaction I thought. I thought people were just go-

ing to ‘ugh’ and (be) all disgusted at looking at me. But it wasn’t� The audience gathered in a circle and watch the doctor massage Morin’s back, liver and chest. “They said, ‘You’re courageous. You’re beautiful. You’re my inspiration. What you did is amazing.� The next morning, two women sat down with her during breakfast and talked about their scars and how they felt about their bodies. “Some women were showing me their scars that they never showed their husbands for three, five years. One woman her whole body was burnt and she never showed her arms or her legs to anybody and she showed it to me.� Morin remembers thinking at the time, “If I’ve helped these two women already, how many more could I help by doing what I did last night by revealing myself?� When she arrived home, Morin hired Michelle Valberg, an award-winning Canadian photographer who had worked with many women recovering from cancer in the past. But again, when she looked at the dozens of photographs of herself topless, Morin was horrified. Morin sank into a depression for several days. “I couldn’t get out of bed,� she said. “I realized it was because I had to look at myself.� When a copy of Morin’s article, “The Beauty Within�, published in Healing our World – a magazine published by the Hippocrates Health Institute – arrived in her mailbox, Morin’s youngest son opened the mail. “Mom your article came out!� he said. Morin looked at her story – it came with a full page photograph of her topless. She quickly put down the magazine. “Mom can I take it to school?� her son asked. “I want to take it to my teacher and my principal because maybe you’ll be able to help someone that they know.� Her son’s reaction was echoed by hundreds of emails from people all over the world thanking Morin for writing the article. “I was amazed at the reaction from so many people,� said Morin. “I just went topless, but it changed so many

people. I decided, you know what, if it’s making such an impact on people all throughout the world, what about if I write a book? “That’s when I said, ‘This is my body. This is how I look and this is how it’s staying,’� said Morin. That same day, Morin decided against breast reconstruction surgery. “I do not want to put myself throughout any more pain, any more surgery to have breasts,� she said. “I’ve had my two kids; I’ve nursed my kids. Women have breasts to nurse their children – they’ve done their jobs.� Breast reconstructive surgery would demand four more operations and two years of recovery. “I was finally getting my life back to the way it was. I’m starting to feel my upper body again. I was rollerblading everyday, biking everyday,� said Morin. “I didn’t want to take that away.� It was more important to keep exercising and stay active, she said. “This is me now,� she said. “This is my new look and I accept my new look. I’m not ashamed of not having breasts. I’m not ashamed of not having cancer.� Morin wrote about the story of her battle with cancer and her recovery in the recently published book The Courage to Look Beyond, on sale at Chapters and Rainbow Natural Foods, located at 1487 Richmond Rd. Readers can obtain a signed copy of the book by purchasing it through the website lindamorin.ca. Morin will appear for a book signing at the Kanata Chapters on Sunday, Oct. 28 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. “I want women to feel good about themselves and not be ashamed of who they are,� said Morin. “It doesn’t matter what scars you have. It doesn’t matter if it’s cancer. It doesn’t matter if you’re fat, small, you have big breasts – accept yourself.� Morin hopes her message will resonate with teens and young women. “The girls, they feel that they have to have their breast done,� she said. “They feel they have to have implants because they’re going to attract more men. It doesn’t matter the size of your breasts. It’s what’s inside that matters – that’s what’s beautiful.�

Ward 5 West Carleton-March NON-PERISHABLE DONATIONS STILL NEEDED IN THE NEW YEAR During the month of December 2012, I was collecting donations for the West Carleton Food Bank with a donation box that was set up at my ward ofďŹ ce at 5670 Carp Road.

Line dancing to resume with winter classes in Arnprior EMC lifestyle - Line dance programs in Mississippi Mills and at the Nick Smith Centre in Arnprior concluded a successful fall session in mid-December and participants are looking forward to resuming a winter program this month. Weekly classes have been held since midOctober. About 20 participants have attended on a regular basis each Monday from 1:30 to 3 p.m. at a new program at the Nick Smith Centre. Programs continue at the Almonte Community Centre Wednesdays and the Stewart Community Centre in Pakenham on Thursdays. There is an ongoing opportunity for visitors to ‘drop-in’ and see what this dance-form is like, and this invitation will be extended for the winter and spring sessions. Arnprior Parks and Recreation program supervisor Jay Koch was instrumental in setting up the new program, and has some supportive comments regarding its introduction. “I’m really pleased with the success of the afternoon line-dancing class,” he said “It’s an ideal opportunity for everyone who is interested, to participate in an active, inclusive program that offers positive benefits of fitness, social interaction and team-work … not to mention the fun I’ve noticed participants having during their sessions.” For this first term in Arnprior, instructor Hyacinth Chatterton has been pleased to welcome an enthusiastic group of adults of both genders. “I find that these participants are creative and dedicated as well, and they have been very willing to learn dances that are choreographed to various genres of music,” she said. “For example, in addition to the Standard-Country, I have also introduced them to Western-Swing, Latin-Rhythms, Jazz-Styling, Waltzes, Modern-Hits, and I even have a Gangnam-Style dance lined up for the winter session which starts in January,” she added, demonstrating two of the dance’s ‘signature-moves’ that went viral on You-Tube. When the Nick Smith Centre’s Linedance program started in October, it attracted participants from the Arnprior area as well as various sections of the Valley, including from as far afield as Eganville.

Chatterton noted that one of the aims of the group is to be involved in a positive way with the community. So, in consultation with group members, some line dances were chosen for a 40-minute performance at Arnprior District Memorial Hospital, which will take place in mid-January. The group is looking forward to the opportunity of entertaining residents and their caregivers in this way, and the contact at the hospital is pleased that such a visit is being planned. The group of line-dancers have adopted the name the ‘Arnprior Hy-Liners’, and Chatterton confirms they will be available to dance throughout the year for any other local facilities who would like them pay a visit, or attend a particular venue or event. Networking with other line-dancing groups is one of the basic activities enjoyed by those participating in this dance-form, and on Dec. 13 the Arnprior Hy-Liners had a chance to greet, meet, eat, and, of course, dance with other groups, including some line-dancers who visited from Kanata’s Beaverbrook Community Centre. The event held in Pakenham’s Stewart Community Centre was hosted by the Almonte and Pakenham branches of the Mississippi Hy-Liners. Chatterton was pleased to be able to organize this gathering of four groups for such an activity, and she anticipates that dancers from other groups, such as members of the classes from the Arnprior Quality Inn and the Horton Community Centre, will be available to attend the next ‘local-social’ in early March. It will be held either at the Nick Smith Centre in Arnprior, the Almonte Community Centre or the Pakenham Community Centre. Registration is now open at the Nick Smith Centre and for the winter session, scheduled to begin on Monday, Jan. 7 at 1:30 p.m. The registration begins at the Almonte Community Centre Jan. 9 and at the Stewart Community Centre in Pakenham Jan. 10. Chatterton points out that this first class of the new session will be free for anyone interested in learning more about this dance-form. For more details regarding registration, call the Nick Smith Centre at 613-623-7301 or Chatterton at 613-623-0976 or drop in at the Old Almonte Town Hall.

Gathering ice blocks always sent chills down Mary’s spine

BY MARY COOK

make sure he was safe. What I could do, I had no idea. But just being with him, I knew would keep him safe. I was bundled up like a mummy, and Father wore a second pair of bib overalls over his winter clothes. His big cowhide mitts covered two pairs of wool mitts, a fur hat with the ear lugs down was tied securely under his chin, his pipe, as always hung loosely from his mouth, and we were ready for the trip across the back field, down the other side of the West Hill to the Bonnechere. The ice on the river cracked and snapped under the sleigh. I fervently prayed the horses, sleigh and Father and I wouldn’t end up on the bottom of the river. We came to the very centre of the Bonnechere. And then the long process began. Father, using the auger, burrowed four holes, forming a square into the ice. Then, with the needle-nosed saw, he cut a swath from one hole to the other three. This was when I was filled with dread, because I knew what was coming. Once the square was freed from the water, the block instantly flew from the water, sometimes rising above the very ice we stood on, splashing great gushes of water all around. Most of it landed right on Father.

Now the block was ready to be hauled out and put on the sleigh. This step was repeated until the sleigh was covered with blocks and they were piled three deep. Here, I took on a new fear. What if the sleigh was so weighted down, the horses, the sleigh, the cut blocks of ice, and I went to the bottom of the Bonnechere? By the time the last block was heaved onto the top row of ice, Father’s overalls were slick with frozen water. It was all he could do to climb onto the front of the sleigh and head the horses back to the ice house. As soon as we were on firm ground, I said my silent prayer of thanks that we had been saved from a freezing death in the bottom of the Bonnechere. But Father’s work was far from over. Once back at the ice house, he had to unload the blocks, one at a time, each probably weighing in at 100 pounds, and place them in rows inside. Father could hardly walk upright with the weight of his frozen overalls. But he was not ready to change into dryer clothes yet. The horses had to be put in the barn, fed and bedded. Only then did he head for the house and the warmth of the kitchen. Mother had to strip him of the frozen outer layer, and the

fall asleep. The Ottawa Farm Journal, or the Family Herald and Weekly Star would have gradually slipped from his gnarled hands. I would watch his gentle breathing and I would be filled with such caring. And again I would say my prayers of grateful thanks that Father had survived another day of bringing in the ice from the Bonnechere.

ered ourselves very privileged indeed to have the big oak Barnett bought by grandfather who couldn’t understand how anyone could survive without an ice box. After that day on the Bonnechere, and after his supper, Father, completely spent of every ounce of energy, would go to his usual spot in the kitchen. He would settle into the rocking chair in front of the Findlay Oval, lift his stockinged feet onto a cushion on the oven door, and promptly

Mary Cook’s Memories

overalls were draped over the wood-box to melt and dry. The brothers would be pressed into service on Saturday, as they headed to the sawmill, to bring back load after load of sawdust and cover the blocks in the ice house. The sawdust was free, the owner of the mill glad to be rid of it. And so, for another winter, and hopefully well over the summer, we would have ice for the ice box in the kitchen of that old log house. We consid-

EMC lifestyle – For reasons which escape me today, I was always home from school on the day Father went to the Bonnechere to bring ice in from the ice house. I think now, it was because Mother knew how very anxious I was when Father went to the river, and in my childish mind, I was sure I could save him from any disaster if I too was on the Bonnechere. Father had been watching the river for weeks. And then one day he went down with the auger and burrowed a hole to see how thick the ice was in the very centre of the river where the water was the deepest. It was ready. It was time to bring in the blocks of ice for the ice house. Through necessity, the ice house was always built on the north side of the barn. This protected it from the sun. It was a small, black building, not much bigger than the smoke house, with no windows, only a narrow door just wide enough to allow one body inside with the big iron ice-tongs. Now the day had arrived when Father would go to the river with the flat bottom sleigh and the team of horses, and the tools he needed for cutting out the ice. I was filled with both dread and admiration. I lived in fear that Father would slip into one of the holes from which he had taken a block of ice, and be lost forever. And at the same time, I marveled at how this single day would provide us with ice for the rest of the winter, and if we were lucky, until this same exercise was repeated the next year. If I was with him, I figured I could look after him and

Remembering the Almonte train wreck 70 years later Tara Gesner

THOSE HONOURED

tgesner@perfprint.ca

EMC News – Thirtynine names were spoken last Thursday evening in Almonte, Dec. 20: the names of angels so desperately missed, and so deeply loved. Mississippi Mills Coun. Denzil Ferguson, Marilyn Snedden and Cliff Bennett identified the men, women and children who were killed as a result of the Almonte train accident on Dec. 27, 1942. A single white candle was lit for each victim. Villages and towns across the Ottawa Valley were devastated after a troop train slammed into the Canadian Pacific Railway evening special (No. 550) at Almonte. The wreck is considered one of the worst in Canadian rail history. The memorial tribute for the 70th anniversary of the crash took place at the corner of Mill and Bridge streets – the location of the train wreck monument. More than 100 people attended, including several survivors. A reception followed at the Old Town Hall. The North Lanark Historical Society (NLHS) partnered with the Town of Mississippi Mills to organize the affair. “We are here to remember the ones who died as well as thank the heroes,” said Ed Wilson, president of the

corner of Mill and Bridge streets. NLHS. It is well documented that local residents came to the rescue of the survivors who were in need. “It is very appropriate that this event is being held in the same year that the tracks, which carried those trains, are being removed,” said Wilson. The memorial tribute opened with the singing of “O Canada,” led by Kelly Sloan.

Mississippi Mills Mayor John Levi was “really pleased to see so many people in attendance to honour those who tragically lost their lives 70 years ago.” Speaking of the residents back in 1942 and how they rushed to the scene in the minutes following the crash to help, “It shows what the people of this town are made of,” he continued.

“We pray for those people who died on that terrible day, so many years ago,” said Father Lindsay Harrison, “and we bless those who did not die but who carried the wounds… around their hearts throughout their lives.” As the tribute moved across the street to the Old Town Hall, the number of attendees swelled to 200, said Tiffany McLaren, the municipality’s

economic and cultural coordinator. “The storytellers were great, everyone listened intently,” she continued, “and Johnny Spinks was a perfect fit for the event and the song.” THE MONUMENT

Fourteen years ago (in 1998) ideas were brewing to try – in some way – to com-

memorate the 70th anniversary of the train accident in Almonte, said Peter Moller. A committee was established in February 1999. The founding members were Cliff Bennett and Herb Pragnell. A short time later John Dunn, Al Gunn, Dawn Leduc, Winston MacIntosh, Marilyn Snedden and Merv Tosh joined them. See ALMONTE, Page 35

“It should be noted that John and Merv had a very personal interest in this endeavour as they were both actually on the train at the moment of impact,” said Moller. Unfortunately, Dunn,

Gunn, Leduc, MacIntosh and Tosh died in recent years. Moller became involved later in the process to bring it to fruition. Roz, his wife, joined him. Initially, for funding purposes, the committee hoped

a monument could be built and specified as a millennium project. “Town support was obtained, including the provision of this site,” said Moller, “and fundraising (public and municipal) was undertaken.” There was a time that it appeared as though the project would not be realized – all estimates exceeded the monies

available, he continued. “Ultimately, a proposal was received from Yolkowski Monuments in Cobden, through Kerry Monuments in Almonte, for a memorial that would be formed from the two halves of a large granite boulder,” said Moller, “and the

cost was going to be within the budget.” The project was not completed by 2000; however, it was finished in time for a dedication ceremony on the 60th anniversary of the catastrophe (Dec. 27, 2002). “It was truly gratifying that

all the participants in the project were present at that auspicious event,” said Moller. “I remember we all agreed we should try to hold another commemorative ceremony in 10 years.”

Community comes through for house fire victims John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

EMC news – An acquaintance of Ken Scissons came up to him shortly after the fire that destroyed his house and left his seven tenants homeless, offered his condolences and shook his hand. After the White Lake man left, Scissons opened his hand to find a $100 bill. That’s just one example of the support offered by the community in the wake of the Dec. 14 fire on McGonigal Street in Arnprior. “People are so good,” said a grateful Scissons. The Arnprior resident who turned 85 Jan. 1 has long-standing roots in the Valley. His ancestors came to the Corkery area in the 1830s and at one time his grandfather and father ran the Klondike Inn on March Road. Scissons dropped by the Legion Dec. 23 to accept close to $4,500 to help his tenants and himself recover from the blaze. The Arnprior Sears outlet had been collecting donations for nine days and owner John Purdon presented Scissons with eight envelopes of $415 each, one for him and seven for the tenants. Also on hand at the Arnprior Legion were Sophia and Nick Xidous from Steve and Dennis Restaurant. About $125 was collected at the R0011837777/0103

Ken Scissons, whose family has roots in West Carleton, is grateful for the community support. downtown Arnprior restaurant and the Xidous family added $1,000 of their own money. “And you’re my opposition,” joked Scissons, who ran Ken’s Kitchen until recently. As well, the restaurant provided food and vouchers for the fire victims, much of it from their own pocket after confusion over what the Red Cross was providing.

Several other businesses in town collected donations for the fire victims and the Arnprior District Memorial Hospital Auxiliary’s Opportunity Shop provided them items for free. Scissons said many people have helped. For example when he tried to buy $10 of gas at Fraser’s Towing, Jim Fraser told him to “fill ‘er up … you’re not paying. The gas is on me.” Scissons, whose heart troubles forced him to close Ken’s Kitchen a few months ago, has had a tough 2012. His brother is seriously ill; his son, Robert, died last month; and his daughter, Sheila, one of the tenants, lost her 14-year-old dog in the fire along with most of her belongings, including $200 bequeathed from Robert with which she was going to buy Christmas presents. Another tenant, Lorraine Chambers, is grateful for the donations, but is mostly just thankful to be alive. She said she was sleeping in her upstairs apartment when the fire broke out in the basement of the McGonigal Street home. “Linda (Burnett) saved my life,” she said. Burnett, a main floor tenant, noticed smoke coming up through her floor and sounded the alarm, ensuring Chambers and four others in the house at the time got out.

An Arnprior house owned by Ken Scissons was destroyed by fire Dec.14, leaving seven tenants homeless. Chambers said she started down the stairs in the house already filling with smoke, but turned around to get her purse. “It wasn’t the money … it was all my ID I wanted,” she explained. She figured she had about 15 seconds to get out and by the time she got downstairs she could only see a couple of inches in front of her because of the thick smoke. Outside in her pajamas and bare feet in the snow, she was rescued

by her hairdressers down the street at Clip and Snip Hair Design. They warmed her up with coffee and consoled her. “I guess I was in shock,” she said. Chambers lost all her belongings, other than her purse and the pajamas she was wearing. “It’s losing the mementoes … the pictures of children that’s the hardest,” she said. All the tenants were in the same boat as very little was rescued, she noted.

Addicts to benefit from program EMC news - The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre announces the launch of a new service to treat opioid addiction and related mental health issues in people who are under 30 years old or who have been using opioids for less than five years. The Regional Opioid Intervention Service will provide outpatient opioid detoxification and follow up services as well as mental health treatment based on each patient’s unique needs. “The Regional Opioid Intervention Service will be one of the first of its kind in Ontario, providing early intervention for Opioid addiction on an outpatient basis alongside treatment for concurrent mental health problems,” said George Weber, president and CEO of The Royal. “The Royal is proud to join forces with partners across our region to provide a hub of support for the many people and families who are dealing with opioid addiction but have not known where to go for help until now.” “Opioid addiction is a known issue among youth and young adults with studies showing that young people are more likely to experiment with opioids than with cigarettes,” added Dr. Melanie Willows, Clinical Director, Substance Use and Concurrent Disorders Program, The Royal. “Early intervention increases the chance of overcoming this addiction. By identifying and treating underlying mental health problems along with problematic drug use, we can help to prevent the likelihood of relapse.” The Regional Opioid Intervention Service is based on a collaborative model of care which integrates a new outpatient intervention clinic at The Royal with a network of community and hospital service providers to offer patients a full spectrum of care. The clinic at The Royal will provide detoxification and maintenance services as well as mental health assessment and treatment options for people dealing with opioid addiction. Partner organizations will identify clients in need and share in their ongoing care - in activities such as case management, counseling, and social supports. The Regional Opioid Intervention Service will also provide training, consultation, and mentorship to family physicians as well as mental health and addictions workers. This will increase the capacity of healthcare providers across the region to provide detoxification and maintenance services in partnership with community mental health and addiction services. In particular, the service will focus on bringing opioid treatment to outlying and rural areas that currently have no such services. “During the past several years, the Champlain LHIN has improved and expanded addictions services for adults and youth to help meet an increased demand,” says Chantale LeClerc, CEO of the Champlain LHIN. “We have recently invested in new

opioid substitution therapy programs in different parts of our region, and now, the LHIN has made a decision to provide $360,000 to the new Regional Opioid Intervention Service. This collaborative program leverages expertise from specialists, community health centres and addictions agencies. It builds capacity for addictions treatment, and promotes collaboration with primary care. This is good news at a time when opioid addiction is increasingly becoming a challenge for our communities.” The Regional Opioid Intervention Service is also funded in part by the AFP Innovation Fund at The Royal which supports new and innovative practices in health care delivery and leadership in knowledge-sharing across the health care system. How Prospective Patients Can Access the Regional Opioid Intervention Service The service will be accessible on a self-referral basis meaning individuals who want to stop or reduce their use of opioids (such as Fenta-

nyl and Oxycontin) need only to register for an orientation session as a first step towards getting help. “Our orientation sessions will provide information on all options available for opioid addictions services and treatment throughout our region – there is currently no other group that offers this to potential clients and their families,” says Dr. Kim Corace, Project Director, Regional Opioid Intervention Service, The Royal. “With the Regional Opioid Intervention Service no door is the wrong door for people who want help with an opioid problem. The Regional Opioid Intervention Services will hold its first orientation session for people interested in receiving treatment on January 10, 2013 (additional orientation sessions will occur monthly) with initial patients expected to begin treatment shortly thereafter. To register for an orientation session, individuals should call 613-722-6521 ext. 6105.

New community facilitation book Duck is a lean and flavourful to assist in enabling social change meat choice for a tasty meal Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news – Ottawa women who have made the journey from being disenfranchised to leading city-hall consultation groups want to tell you their secrets. Members of the City for All Women Initiative are a diverse group of women with varying cultural backgrounds, many of whom are refugees or have overcome abuse and now hold an ear at city hall. They have worked on a consultation strategy for the city’s recreation master plan, which is underway, and they helped develop an equity and inclusion lens that is used to judge how city reports address diversity and inclusion issues. The initiative’s latest project is a new book, Community Facilitation Guide: Weaving Threads of Change. Members know better than anyone that encouraging change at city hall is as much of an art as a science. “Now in the City of Ottawa there are many changes in policies,” said Valerie Assoi, a staffer for the initiative who helped author the book. “When there in change in policies, the city wants to know what the community feels … How (is city hall) going to know that if they don’t have people there (in the community)?” That’s where the City for All Women Initiative’s training – and

the book – come in. While the city may not have the resources to reach out to every facet of the community, the initiative can train and give people the skills to become facilitators in their communities and take those issues to city hall and decision makers. After refining their approach through community facilitator workshops run by the initiative starting in 2010, the members decided to compile their knowledge into a practical guide in order to offer it to other community-based organizations, governments and companies that want to learn how to facilitate community engagement and build skills at the grassroots level. “This is helping to empower ourselves, our communities and future generations,” said Tina Viscent, one of the book’s authors. The book provides an overview of the initiative’s approach to social change education and includes tips, exercises and handouts for facilitating workshops. Most importantly to the City for All Women Initiative, the guide offers straightforward and practical tools for including the voices of a diverse population, including immigrants, aboriginal peoples, francophone, people with disabilities and those living in poverty. “This book is the story of threading all of the experiences of the people who contributed,” said Terri-Lee Rayvals-Mele, one of the authors who contributed to

the guide. “It is a weaving of diversity, expertise and learning.” Community engagement professionals who had a hand in advising the project said they were very impressed by the practicality of the book and the level of detail. Aaron Burry, the city’s general manager of community and social services, said the initiative’s approach has proved beneficial for the city and he is happy to see the guide made available to other groups who could have the same impact thanks to the initiative’s advice. “We have had a chance to try really innovative forms of community consultation in partnership with CAWI,” Burry said. Aleksandra Milosevic, a community developer at the Centertown Community Health Centre, said the guide has really excited her fellow community development professionals across the field. “I flipped through it and I’m already ecstatic,” she said. “Looking at it, I see lots of possibility. It is truly a gift of learning.” Status of Women Canada and the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union provided seed funding to print the books, but the initiative is relying on book sales to produce more and make it widely available. Print copies in English or French are available for $20 through the website at www. cawi-ivtf.org.

EMC lifestyle - Duck isn’t just for special occasions, nor is it difficult to prepare, so look for Ontario raised duck in you grocery store and give this great recipe a try. Duck is readily available at butchers and some grocery stores; it is a lean and flavourful meat choice. Quick and easy to cook, it makes weeknight meals or special dinners simple to get on the table. Preparation Time: 10 minutes plus one hour marinating time Cooking Time: 20 minutes Servings: two Ingredients • 1/2 cup (125 mL) sodium reduced chicken broth • 3 tbsp (45 mL) rice wine, mirin or white wine • 3 tbsp (45 mL) sodium reduced soy sauce • 2 tbsp (25 mL) seasoned rice vinegar • 1 tbsp (25 mL) minced ginger • 2 fresh cloves garlic, minced • 1 fresh Ontario duck breast • 2 tbsp (25 mL) canola oil • 3 cups (750 mL) chopped bok choy, rapini or swiss chard • 2 cups (500 mL) chopped Nappa cabbage • 1 pkg (4 oz/114 g) shitake mushrooms, stemmed and sliced • 1 fresh sweet red pepper, thinly sliced
