EMC news - A 73-year-old former Sunday school teacher who has sponsored children from all over the world through World Vision pleaded guilty Monday in an Ottawa courtroom to various sex abuse charges. Paul Laframboise, of Fitzroy Harbour, pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual interference, one count of a careless storage of a firearms, and three counts of sexual assault, according to his lawyer Joseph Addelman. Laframboise served the communities of Fitzroy Harbour, West Carleton, and Kanata in his role as a Sunday school teacher. Police arrested him Oct. 19 and later charged him with offences including sexual assault, invitation to sexual touching, sexual interference, sexual exploitation, uttering threats, and a variety of weapons offences. Addelman said none of the sex abuse took place in relation to his teaching role. “My client is very remorseful. Extraordinarily remorseful,” Addelman said. “And this plea of guilt is a public demonstration of that remorse and an acceptance of guilt on his part.” Four victims are involved in the case. Addelman said some of Laframboise’s family and friends were present in court to support him. The court will order a psychiatric sexual behaviour report from The Royal Ottawa Hospital and a pre-sentence report. The case has been adjourned to March 4 to set a sentencing date. See MAN, Page 2

EMC news – Two people rescuing a dog on the Ottawa River found themselves in need of rescuing last weekend. The two people spotted - from near Ferry Road - a dog at about the midway point of the river on Sunday morning. They decided to push an aluminum boat out to save the animal, but ended up getting stuck when the ice broke beneath them. That’s when a woman on shore, near the Quyon Ferry ramp, called 911 for help. Firefighters arrived on scene at about 11:30 a.m., according to spokesman Marc Messier, to see two people and the dog stranded in the boat. “Nobody was in distress,” Messier said.

“They got the dog, but couldn’t get the boat turned around.” The emergency crew pulled out its Fortuna, a large canoe-like boat with open ends for easy access. The crew was tethered and decked out in Mustang survival suits. Still, one fell through to the knee during the rescue. All were brought to shore safely. Rural sector Chief Chris Burke said it is impossible to judge the safety of the river based on weather conditions. Currents move in various directions in different locations, affecting the thickness of the ice. Last weekend was warm, but even if it wasn’t Burke advises against going out to rescue an animal. “My best advice is to say: They are smart

Burke, who lives along the river in Dunrobin, recalls a number of similar occurrences on the river; not all of them have ended happily. “Don’t go on the ice,” he said. “You are putting your life at risk without proper equipment or experience.” Messier said it is understandable that owners worry over their pets safety; that dogs should be on a leash when near waterways; but that it might not be the last time a call like this comes in.

Area businesses glad to see hockey back Heather Rochon

EMC news - Restaurants and hotels are gearing up for the start of the Ottawa Senators season, after the National Hockey League announced it had reached an agreement with the players union, ending a lengthy lockout. Many people and businesses have been severely affected, including team staff located at Scotiabank Place who were laid off back in September. The Kanata Brookstreet Hotel is just one of many hotels preparing themselves for the start of a new NHL season. “We are extremely excited

for things to go back to normal this winter,� said Mark Nisbett, director of sales and marketing at the Brookstreet Hotel. “Things around here will get more lively. “We always have people coming into the hotel but it’s just not the same without the hockey season.� Dustin Therrien, the owner of the Cheshire Cat Pub, said hockey season “has many positive outcomes for a business like ours. “It will definitely help with out with our weekly dinners, allows for a more bolstered schedule as far as staffing

City clears final Lansdowne legal hurdle Conservancy appeal denied by Supreme Court Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Construction at Lansdowne Park can continue with a clear conscience after the Supreme Court dismissed the final legal challenge against the development. Construction began this fall, before the court had issued its final ruling on whether it would hear an appeal from John Martin’s Lansdowne Park Conservancy. Last September, city solicitor Rick O’Connor said would be “exceedingly difficult� for Martin to be successful in re-

quest to be heard by the Supreme Court. The conservancy was arguing that the courts should reject the city’s contract with a private company, the Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group, to redevelop the Glebe site on the grounds that it was a sole-sourced deal. Martin’s group had proposed an alternate vision for the site that focused to retaining it as a park and public space, whereas the current plan includes a great deal of retail and commercial development. He wanted the city to run a competitive bid for the rede-

velopment contract. The conservancyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legal case was dismissed by the Ontario Court of Appeal on Aug. 28 of last year and Martin applied to the Supreme Court to ask if it would hear his case. The legal challenge had previously been rejected by three divisional court judges last April. In an email sent out late in the afternoon on Jan. 10, Martin called the result â&#x20AC;&#x153;an incredible opportunity lost.â&#x20AC;? Martin laid the blame for what he calls a lack of competitive process on Mayor Jim Watson and the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s administration, not the courts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This chapter is closed and it is hoped others will stand up for responsible local government,â&#x20AC;? Martin wrote. Watson wrote in a statement that the city will work â&#x20AC;&#x153;aggressivelyâ&#x20AC;? to recover legal costs from the conservancy. The conservancy has already

been ordered to pay the city $11,000 in legal costs from previous court decisions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to say again that every citizen has a right to challenge the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decisions in court. But that right should not be taken lightly,â&#x20AC;? Watson wrote. The Conservancy case is the second legal challenge to the project to be rejected by the courts. The Friends of Lansdowne spent $600,000 taking their fight to a three-judge panel at the Ontario Superior Court. On April 30, 2012, the panel agreed that the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s partnership with the OSEG doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t constitute an illegal subsidy for a private business, rejecting the Friends of Lansdowneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legal appeal of the project. The Friends announced on June 14 that they would not take their case to the Supreme Court.

PCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan would lead to labour chaos: economics expert Austerity measures the wrong way to go, says Carleton professor Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Progressive Conservatives vow to bring in U.S.-style right-towork legislation if the party wins the next election. But an economics expert at Carleton University says that would lead to lower wages for all Ontario workers, usher in labour chaos and further damage the Ontario economy. A party â&#x20AC;&#x153;white paperâ&#x20AC;? was released recently to gauge voter feedback. While not a series of campaign promises, it is considered the direction leader Tim Hudak and the party intends to go. Sweeping changes to strip unions of power is at its core. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for Ontario to reexamine outdated workplace rules that date back to the 1940s and adapt them to the much more ďŹ&#x201A;exible requirements of todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s employees,â&#x20AC;? reads the Paths to Prosperity: Flexible Labour Markets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We must realize that labour ďŹ&#x201A;exibility and more opportunities for workers are essential to retaining and attracting the very best talent to our province.â&#x20AC;? The white paper goes on to say a series of government policies favour union leaders over employees and their employers in ways that reduce opportunities for individual workers and are obstacles to economic growth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Union leaders have become so powerful that many employees in effect have two bosses, their actual employer and the people who run their union,â&#x20AC;? reads the white paper. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mandatory union membership, forced paycheque contributions, closed tendering for government contracts and the artiďŹ cial restriction on the number of our youth able to enter the skilled trades â&#x20AC;&#x201C; these are not policies that foster the open, innovative economy Ontario needs.â&#x20AC;? U.S. President Barak Obama recently commented on states - such as the onetime union powerhouse Michigan - enacting right-to-work legislation. He called it â&#x20AC;&#x153;right to work for lessâ&#x20AC;? legislation. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a phrase Justin Paulson,

AUSTERITY NEEDED

assistant professor of sociology and political economy at Carleton, said accurately captures what happens in those regions. Alabama and about 23 others with right-to-work have the lowest wages; when workers are divided they are more vulnerable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Encouraging employees to opt out of paying dues substantially weakens any unionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to negotiate on behalf of all of its members,â&#x20AC;? said Paulson, who studied in the U.S. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The result is almost always weaker unions and lower wages. This is uncontroversial; the lowest in the U.S. are in right-to-work states, and while right-to-work proponents claim that this is somehow offset by the creation of more jobs, the dynamics behind employment and unemployment are far more complicated than whether or not strong unions exist.â&#x20AC;? Paulson said a â&#x20AC;&#x153;ďŹ&#x201A;exibleâ&#x20AC;? workforce â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the ability to ďŹ re workers and restructure almost at will â&#x20AC;&#x201C; only sometimes increases proďŹ ts. He said the idea that cheap labour always equals high proďŹ t is â&#x20AC;&#x153;rather sophomoric.â&#x20AC;? It might have an effect in the short term, but it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t account for other variables and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hold for all industries. The assumption in the PC argument is that corporations donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like unions. Paulson said that is far from always the case; that unions reduce employee turnover, add experience, and bring other beneďŹ ts. A wellpaid workforce usually means fewer social problems that require government intervention; intervention that requires taxes from corporations. He added that the bulk of investors are from within a given region. There are not many outside investors considering a move to Ontario. So to discard labour laws that have worked for 70 years in the hope of attracting outside entrepreneurs isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a wise de-

JACK MACLAREN cision. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For all the rhetoric of companies being able to pick up and move to the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;most attractiveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; locales, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mostly smoke-and-mirrors, just as the outcries about outsourcing in the 1990s were pretty much red herrings,â&#x20AC;? Paulson said. McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have an Ontario customerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s burger ďŹ&#x201A;ipped in Mexico. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most companies, and certainly most factory operations, are not able to move. And there are all sorts of factors at play â&#x20AC;&#x201C; unionization is just one among a great many â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in choosing where to establish a new business operation.â&#x20AC;? Paulson joins a growing list of economists and others, along with groups like the right-leaning International Monetary Fund, who say taking an austerity approach hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ďŹ xed problems in Europe, and likely wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t improve the stalled situation in places like Ontario. He said cutting back the size of government might be ideologically appealing to some, but it is the opposite of what needs to happen to grow an economy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get out of a stagnant economy by austerity,â&#x20AC;? Paulson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have to grow your way out of deďŹ cit; if the goal is to eliminate a deďŹ cit.â&#x20AC;?

Jack MacLaren said austerity measures are the only way to go; that the private sector in this province has taken a hit to the tune of some 60,000 jobs and now it is the public sectorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s turn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody in our society is going to have to shoulder the burden,â&#x20AC;? said the Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP, adding that high taxes are collected to pay for an educated, healthy workforce, but that the time has come for Ontario to compete with other jurisdictions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are living beyond our means,â&#x20AC;? MacLaren said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t paid the true costs of government as weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gone along. And now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s come home to roost.â&#x20AC;? He said unions served a purpose in the past, but that individuals can nogiatate wages on their own or move to another province that will appreciate their skills. MacLaren dismisses the notion that government can have a hand in shaping and growing an economy. The best it can do is clear up red tape for the private sector. His universal statement is that the private sector does a better job: every time. He even downplays taxpayersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; investment in his own salary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As someone in the public sector, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a burden on society,â&#x20AC;? MacLaren said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If government is smaller with fewer workers, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll tax you less.â&#x20AC;? He is on board with his partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan to enact right-to-work legislation. He especially holds that lower business taxes will attract more investors, which in turn will create more jobs, which in turn will drive wages up. Paulson doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t buy that line of argument. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work. The whole right-to-work

strikes me as a straight union-busting tactic. It serves an ideological function, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s it,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The idea that it would bring up wages is ridiculous. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just not mainstream economics.â&#x20AC;? He said austerity measures â&#x20AC;&#x201C; cutting government jobs, reducing wages, failing to add stimulus - puts an economy into a recessionary tailspin or, at best, a kind of stagďŹ&#x201A;ation. Ontario, with some of the lowest corporate taxes in North America, would beneďŹ t from raising them, according to Paulson. UNION VIOLENCE

His fear is that if Ontario continues to go after unions â&#x20AC;&#x201C; much like the Liberals did with teachers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it will embolden the more radical left-wingers in the union movement. For the last 30 years or so, moderate union leaders have won the support of the majority with steady increases in pay. Should that fall away, the moderatesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; grip on union workers would slip. Few remember how wildcat strikes, vandalism, even all out rioting and violence, happened with some frequency in North America. Business suffered, workers suffered, all agreed laws respecting workers were needed in order to beneďŹ t the whole. Would dismantling labour laws and taking away Charter and union rights mean a return of the radical left? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think you should have concerns,â&#x20AC;? Paulson said, pointing to last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s student uprisings in Quebec and elsewhere. He said these things are unpredictable, but it could get a whole lot worse if governments insist on eliminating deďŹ cits rather than grow economies.

Mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Report

Quick thaw costs city, residents Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

MOVING LIGHT RAIL FORWARD By Jim Watson

http://www.JimWatsonOttawa.ca

On December 18th 2012, our City Council voted 24-0 to ďŹ nalize the light rail plan that has been so long in the making for Ottawa. Named the Confederation Line and stretching from Tunneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pasture in the west to Blair Station in the east, work is set to begin the ďŹ rst half of 2013 and the line will be completed and carrying passengers in 2018. We also hope to have the downtown stations opened for all to see on Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 150th Birthday on July 1st in 2017. The Confederation Line will greatly increase the capacity of our cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s transit system easing travel for transit users and also pedestrians, bikers, and drivers. This project will beneďŹ t not just one neighbourhood but the whole city. Its success is in everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interest no matter where you live or how you commute. More people on the Confederation Line means less people in cars and fewer buses on our downtown streets which is good news for everyone. This is a $2.1 billion project and as with any mammoth project of this kind there will be challenges along the road. But with the Rideau Transit Group, the worldclass consortium that is building the system, I have every conďŹ dence that disruptions will be limited as much as possible. There will be short-term pain but it ISFORSIGNIlCANTLONG TERMGAIN&URTHERMORE #OUNCIL SIGNEDAlXED PRICECONTRACTMEANINGTHATTHECITYIS protected against any cost overruns.

Compared to 2006, Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population is projected to grow by up to 30 percent by 2031 and easily surpass one million residents well before then. We have to keep population growth and mobility needs uppermost in mind as we conduct the 2013 review our Transportation Master Plan. The review must maintain a steady eye on the future and give considerable effort to accommodate our further evolution as Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital and fourth largest city. The Confederation Line is the ďŹ rst step in what will eventually be a light rail system that spans all of Ottawa. Soon we will begin the process of planning HOWTOEXTENDTHESYSTEMTOTHEEAST WEST ANDSOUTH of Ottawa.

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Weather-wise, the year 2013 is shaping up to be a costly one for governments, farmers and property owners. Potholes, the threat of a second drought, melting ice that makes for treacherous river conditions: It all points to a dangerous few months ahead for both pocketbooks and human safety. Massive snow accumulations over the past few weeks met their match on Jan. 12. Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s record high 7C cracked an 81-year-old record of 5.6C, leading to ice build up on roofs and water run off ďŹ&#x201A;ooding basements. In Galetta and Constance Bay where the roads are above some property lines, it has meant headaches for homeowners. Eli El-Chantiry gets the emails, but short of spending millions to lower area roads, there is little the city can do. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I must share the frustration facing many people,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just in West Carleton. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right across the city.â&#x20AC;? For those who thought potholes were bad in the past, the West Carleton-March councillor says it is only going to get a lot worse this spring when the ďŹ nal thaw hits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be potholes like weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never seen before, from Cumberland to Fitzroy,â&#x20AC;? he said. El-Chantiry has nothing but praise for the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roads crew. They anticipated a warm Sunday by salting roads the day before, ensuring the snow and ice turned to slush. Plows had no problem removing the slush, he said. Crews were also making sure catch basins were clear to deal with the almost nine centimetres of rain

that fell over the weekend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They worked around the clock to get it done,â&#x20AC;? he said. Even Dunrobin Road, notorious for ďŹ&#x201A;ooding the last couple of years â&#x20AC;&#x201C; forcing drivers onto long detours â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was dry over the weekend. A good thing, since ďŹ re attacked an uninhabited building on Saturday, bringing out ďŹ re crews who closed the road for a couple of hours in late afternoon. DOG RESCUERS RESCUED

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just municipal infrastructure and private properties that are affected by the wild ďŹ&#x201A;uctuations in temperatures. The West Carleton portion of the Ottawa River has claimed lives in the past, and El-Chantiry is worried the same could happen again. He said a resident along Ferry Road took a boat to rescue a dog trapped on the ice over the weekend. Emergency crews were called to haul the boat back to shore. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stay the hell out of the ice,â&#x20AC;? El-Chantiry said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If a dog canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make it on the ice, you can bet you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make it. The ice is not safe.â&#x20AC;? A few years back a person died near Vydon Acres trying to save a dog. A young person died when his four-wheeler went through the ice around the same time. There are many more weather-related fatalities in this area. FARMERS AFFECTED

Tom Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Rourke was pretty anxious to see the snow forecasted for November and December. But not much of it came in the lead up to Christmas. The Fitzroy-area farmer was hit hard

by last summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drought. He still recalls the deep cracks in his land, something more akin to a desert than fertile land near one of the deepest rivers in Canada. He said it takes a month of rain to ďŹ ll in those cracks, maybe more if there is little snow the winter before to keep the ground moist. While he isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly predicting a second drought in a row for the summer of 2013, he said the conditions playing out this winter are not ideal for farmers. A solid covering of snow, maintained over a few months, is needed to blanket and protect crops. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you get two feet of snow, rain, then ice: itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not good,â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Rourke said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Plants will be killed if they are not protected by snow.â&#x20AC;? He said he quite trying to predict weather and simply tries to stay optimistic. He said hurricanes, the changing jet stream â&#x20AC;&#x201C; there are too many variables. One thing he does count on? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every 20 years you get a drought,â&#x20AC;? he said. As for global warming or mere freak weather? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weather patterns are deďŹ nitely changing, no doubt about that,â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Rourke said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whether you can attribute it to global warming or not, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know.â&#x20AC;? The drought of 2012 was felt worst in the U.S. mid-west where corn crop was about one-fourth of its usual amount. Corn is key. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s used in many foods, is mixed with gasoline to make ethanol, and used to feed livestock. The worry is that cattle at some Valley farms may have to be put down for lack of feed from hay and corn. This on top of the displacement of hay by higher paying soya beans and even hemp.

Public invited to peek into Ottawa’s streets of the future laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - A radical rethinking of transportation in Ottawa’s downtown core will be on display for the public at city hall on Thursday, Jan. 17. The final presentation for the city’s Downtown Moves study will kick off the way it started – with speakers discussing the strategy needed to move transportation for Ottawa’s urban core into the future. That means reconsidering how people will get downtown – mainly by using transit, bicycles or by walking. Members of the public can view a display of the final Downtown Moves plan in Jean Pigott Hall at city hall (110 Laurier Ave. W.) starting at 5 p.m. Presentations will begin at 7 p.m. and feature Amanda O’Rourke from 8-80 Cities, Donna Hinde from the Planning Partnership, Ron Clarke of Delcan Corporation, the study’s engineering consultant, and finally Ken Greenberg, a popular consultant and speaker on urban design issues. The open house is the final public meeting on the plan before it goes to planning committee for approval in early March. The study is meant to provide a blueprint for how streets, bicycle lanes and sidewalks should be designed in the downtown to accommodate thousands of pedestrians who will pour onto the streets from three underground stations after the city’s light-rail line begins operating in 2018. The city’s master planning documents say that pedestrians should have the highest priority, but that’s often not the case in reality, said Nelson Edwards, the city planner in charge of the project. “It’s going to test how far we can push that conversation,” Edwards said. The difference will be in how engineers ap-

proach the way they design the street, he said. In the past, they would start with the center line in the road and move outwards to fill up the space. In that paradigm, the private vehicle ranks as most important. But the shifting needs of downtown transportation mean the city needs to look at building streets from the outside edge inward, meaning the features for pedestrians have the highest priority, then bicycles are considered, and finally the remaining amount of space will be parceled out for vehicles. Edwards and engineering consultants have drawn up samples of how downtown streets could be rebuilt when the city approves money for the projects. By doing a lot of the work ahead of time, Edwards thinks it will be much easier for city planners to simply adopt the those prepared templates that have already been studied. Making the process easier will ensure the streets are actually built as Downtown Moves envisions them to be, he said. TWO-WAY STREETS

While another plan for the area, the draft version of the Centretown community design plan, envisions testing the idea of changing some one-way streets into two-way streets, that will depend on how much space is leftover when the needs of different road users are accounted for, Edwards said. If there is a tradeoff between having bicycle lanes or having two lanes for vehicular traffic, it’s more likely that bicycles would be prioritized. “We have a limited right-of-way and we need to distribute that space in an equitable way,” he said. An independent review of converting downtown streets to two-way roads would not be the “panacea solution” that some planners believe it could be, Edwards said.

The Importance of Financial Literacy in our Community McAuley Financial Services provides financial planning services to a great many families and businesses in the Ottawa area. Our first hand experience tells us that people need and want assistance with finances. Savings rates have been dropping for years while people like Bank Governor Carney warn about debt levels.

We will run two one hour long discussions on Jan. 26th and students would register for either the 11am meeting or the 1pm meeting. Further details and registration forms may be obtained through our office by calling Barb Newman at 613-5913900. We think it should be fun and entertaining and we are looking forward to meeting the students and helping them come to a greater basic understanding of finances.

We find that financial literacy is weak and we are not really sure where young people are getting their insight into savings, debt, credit, interest and budgeting. For the most part it doesn’t appear they are getting adequate insight and we thought it would be helpful to draw upon our experience to assist high school students in the 15-17 age brackets to obtain a greater understanding and appreciation for some of these basic skills. Our plan is to run an educational seminar and accommodate the first 80 students who register. There will be no cost for the seminar but we would kindly ask that each participant donate $25 or more to Do It For Darin in support of mental health. R0011848086

That doesn’t mean we won’t see any conversions to two-way streets, Edwards said. In fact, his plan supports testing that idea out on Metcalfe Street since it is a more ceremonial route that links Parliament Hill and the Canadian Museum of Nature. “It may be a bold choice,” he said. The Downtown Moves strategy will eventually mean there will be less on-street parking in the downtown, creating a need to better direct drivers to the numerous publically accessible underground parking lots instead, Edwards said. “Yes, it will have an impact on those (parking spaces), but it will be a minimal impact,” he said. STREET CONVERSIONS

Queen Street, which will have light rail running beneath it, forced Edwards to think differently about how streets are designed. Underground stations mean thousands of people will pour onto Queen Street at certain times of day. That means sidewalks will need to be widened on Queen Street – there’s no way around it.

Creating a safer and more welcoming environment for pedestrians along Queen Street will encourage amenties such as cafés and stores to set up shop there, Edwards said. The same goes for cyclists on Slater and Albert streets. The glut of bus traffic that clogs those streets will mostly be removed when transit moves underground, opening up an opportunity to use the former Transitway streets for other modes of transportation. Edwards said he and other transportation planners at the city believe it’s the right spot for the spine of the east-west bikeway through downtown. Slater and Albert could be the right location for a sort of “bike highway” through the downtown and link to other bicycling lanes that take people to other important destinations. That’s the role Edwards sees the Laurier segregated lane pilot project playing. It will be an important route to maintain during light-rail construction, he said, but after 2018, Laurier will still be an important route for cyclists to get to destinations like city hall, the courthouse, the main library and other important office buildings.

Tax credit eases caregiver expenses EMC news - Although being a caregiver to a loved one at home can be a rewarding and enriching experience, it can also be a serious challenge for any family—particularly financially. In 2007, Statistics Canada estimated that more than 2.7 million Canadians were providing eldercare to a friend or family member. Though some caregivers provide all of the support themselves, more than half of

them also worked outside the home. To ease some of the financial strain on families, the federal government recently announced a new family caregiver tax credit (cra.gc.ca/ familycaregiver).This credit provides an additional amount of up to $2,000 for each of the following non-refundable tax credits: • Spouse or common-law partner amount. • Amount for an eligible de-

pendant. • Amount for children born in 1995 or later. • Amount for infirm dependants aged 18 or older. • Caregiver amount. Although no tax credit can help caregivers be in two places at one time, and it does little to ease the demands of caring for a loved one on a day-today basis, still the tax breaks are welcome and available. - News Canada

Snow removal: you get what you pay for

S

now is a fact of life when you live in Ottawa between November and April. Or October and May. Depends on the year. When two big snowfalls hit the city inside a week, snow removal crews were kept running at full speed to keep traffic moving and they did an admirable job. That hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t prevented some citizens from complaining about the aftermath.

Yes, some sidestreets didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get cleared over and over again as the snow fell and wind blew cleared snow from the edges of roads back into the travel lanes. Some multilane streets were reduced to single lanes. But safety never suffered. If drivers adapt to the conditions â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or just stay home when storms hit their peak â&#x20AC;&#x201C; snowy roads work just fine. Those people who proclaimed side streets as the

worst theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d ever seen should check and see if they survived. The sky did not fall. City taxpayers foot the bill for snow clearing, so maybe we shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wish for even greater snow-clearing capabilities. The city administration seems to have discovered the right amount of resources to throw at Mother Nature when she sends multiple snowstorms at us in a short period of time.

In a nutshell, you get the services you are willing to pay for. We could have gold-plated plows and teams of snowremoval technicians with shovels on every street to catch the flakes before they hit the ground. Your street could be buffed and blown dry by morning. Not only would that be costly, but what would happen to all the snow removal equipment during a winter when

there is little snowfall? That very expensive equipment would sit around city yards rusting and depreciating. School boards face a parallel situation. Schools could be built with enough classrooms to hold every child, without a single portable in the yard. But what makes more sense over the lifetime of a school is to construct buildings for the average student population and use portables to deal with a handful of years when

enrolment peaks. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s snow removal strategy strikes a similar balance. We have enough plows to get us through a string of storms, but not enough to make every road look like itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s summertime within a day or two of a blizzard. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sensible spending. If global weather continues to become less predictable â&#x20AC;&#x201C; maybe with warmer winters or snowier ones â&#x20AC;&#x201C; city council may need to reconsider the snow removal budget and buy or sell equipment. Until then, our snow removal people should get a pat on the back and keep on truckinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.

f you read the papers and listen to the radio you know our life is about to get way better because NHL hockey is back, after having stayed away for almost half a season and creating a huge gap in our lives. The sports pages are filling up with actual hockey stories about actual hockey players and whether they have a nice touch around the net. There is speculation about trades and line combinations. This already makes life better for sports page readers, who got really tired of reading about the players and the owners negotiating or not negotiating or not even talking about negotiating. This might have been the worst reading in the history of sports journalism. Anything is an improvement on that and reading actual game stories about the Ottawa Senators and their hated opponents will be a great improvement still. Those whose needs are greater will find satisfaction in the sports talk shows on the radio, where line combinations are examined in even greater depth. Now it begins again and not a moment too soon for many of the experts on our culture, who keep saying that hockey defines us as a people. Of course thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something in that. Many of us play or have played hockey, many more watch hockey or listen to it on the radio. But hockey doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t define everybody. Even in Ottawa. Look how long we went without an NHL team. The previous Senators vacated the premises in 1934; the current Senators didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t arrive until 1992. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a 58 years with no NHL team to define us. And yet we survived somehow as a city, as a city of Canadians who

are supposed to be defined by hockey. This must mean that there are things other than hockey that occupy space in the hearts of people in the National Capital Region. It may also mean that there are people among us who, even now, define themselves as something other than Senators fans. In fact, amazing as it may seem, they may not even think of hockey when it comes time to define themselves. They may define themselves in terms of their jobs. They may define themselves as runners, guitar players, readers, grandparents, hipsters, foodies, Presbyterians, skateboarders, gardeners or even baseball fans. Yet here they all are living in this country thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defined by hockey. And hockey season is starting. Which means that all those skateboarders, guitar players and grandparents are going to be living, whether they like it or not, in a world of line combinations, plus-minus statistics and rumors of impending firings of general managers. It behooves those who live happily in Hockey World to be respectful of those who choose other pursuits. They think they have reason to fear us, and no wonder. Slap Shot was on TV the other night and those who live in Hockey World always tune in for at least part of it. It seems quite Canadian, although itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Hollywood movie. But is it really Canadian, all that enthusiastic brawling and blood on the ice? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what many hockey fans deplore yet, at the same time, we somehow identify with it in a way that American moviegoers cannot. One of the things that defines us, in other words, is our enjoyment of a movie about hockey brawls. This gets a bit scary and it is probably just as well that in real hockey, as opposed to movie hockey, there are referees and brawling is at least officially frowned upon. So, as the real hockey starts, try to be sympathetic towards those of other tastes, remembering that, to some Canadians, condominium height, garbage pickup and light rail are as important as defence pairings and face-off percentages. As they say, it takes all kinds.

OPINION

st

Giving a speech to Anastasia on her 21 birthday EMC lifestyle - I first learned of the tradition of the ‘Age 21’ speech from my Australian friend. He often referred to his ‘21st’: the preparation, the nerves and the delivery of the speech at the birthday party. I assumed it was something like the Debutante balls of the southern United States; a coming of age acknowledgement and celebration. I was wrong. Apparently the tradition stems back to the age of knights. When a boy entered training to be a knight he started at age 7 as a page. By age 14 he graduated to squire. And by age 21, he was officially knighted. In Elizabethan times, a man had to wait for the age of consent – 21 – to be married. Although social

DIANA FISHER Accidental Farmwife rules are different today, the age of 21 is still considered romantically to be when a boy becomes a man. In the United States, where the drinking age is 21, many celebrate reaching this milestone with the consumption of 21 drinks – usually shots of straight liquor – and a nasty headache the next morning. In the UK, it is customary for the birthday boy or girl to give a speech thanking all who are in attendance. In Australia, it goes a bit further, with the

guest of honour and each family member giving a speech. Parents speak of their pride in the accomplishments of the 21-year-old, while partners speaking of their love and hopes for the future. Traditionally the ‘wild card’ speeches in these gatherings usually come from siblings and friends, who can sometimes say things that are quite embarrassing and personal, for the entertainment (and perhaps the dismay) of all in the room. It’s more like a roast

than a toast. One tradition that lives on in many countries is the giving of a key. It’s a symbol of maturity and responsibility, that at the age of 21 you should be trustworthy enough to have the keys of the house. You have become a senior member of the household. That tradition may have waned a bit in our society, where many young people are already moved into their own apartments by the age of 21. In the case of our 21-year-old, Anastasia is already married and renting a house of her own. I personally find this tradition endearing and although I haven’t managed to convince anyone else in my household that we should adopt this tradition, here is my little speech to my second-born.

“Dear Anastasia. You know the story of your birth, so I won’t bore you with it again. But I do want to remind you that there are some correlations between your birth experience and the rest of your life. You were born screaming. You were two weeks late, and you were hungry. I often joke that you haven’t stopped talking since, and you do love to eat. You certainly have an enthusiasm for life; up with the sun every morning to start every day. There is also the birth-order belief that the middle child is always looking for attention. You might have exhibited some of those tendencies as a young child, when you were fighting for your share of the spotlight with your sistesrs, but I don’t think that holds true now at all. You are and

always have been confident, outspoken and headstrong but you also cherish family gatherings, true friends and true love. At the age of 21 you have already found your gift: you found it long ago actually. You have endless patience. This makes you an ideal companion and caregiver for both the very young and the very old. Your role as an Infant teacher at Madison Montessori is perfectly suited to you. You found your true love a few years ago and set your sights on a future together. This year you married your sweetheart and a new phase of life began. I am very proud of you and I wish you all the best of health and happiness in your twenty-second year.” Love always, Mom.

Proposed wildlife changes endanger safety, wildlife: APFA EMC news – Sweeping changes to the Ontario Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act could lead to ecological warfare in Ontario communities, the Association for the Protection of FurBearing Animals (APFA) warns. The association maintains that deregulations - named as efficiencies by the government - will remove important processes in place that increase safety and prevent accidents, provide alternatives to lethal enforcement in conflict situations and, at times, end needless slaughter of young and at-risk wildlife. “Municipalities are beginning to look at co-existence models as a way to handle wildlife conflict,” explains APFA spokesman Adrian Nelson. “But if the Ministry of Natural Resources suc-

cessfully removes restraints from the utilization of hunters and trappers, interest in co-existence will drop dramatically.” Currently, municipalities in Ontario require a permit from MNR prior to hiring a hunter to kill wildlife they deem problematic. Co-existence models are proving successful with various species - coyotes in Niagara Falls and beavers in Cornwall, as examples. In these models, education, enforcement and non-lethal measures are put in place to ensure a healthy ecosystem and end wildlife conflict. “The entire community in Niagara Falls really got behind the co-existence plan,” says Lesley Sampson, co-founder of Coyote

N G 6 9 :<:C

&

.=:

Watch Canada (CWC). “Conflicts and sightings dropped and everyone - from children to seniors - found a new respect for the environment.” Additionally, the harassment and subsequent killing of wildlife including raccoons, foxes, coyotes and wolves will no longer require a permit. “Anyone with a gun and a hunting license will be able to collect tax dollars for killing animals on municipal property,” Nelson adds. “Not only is this a serious ecological problem, but clearly a massive safety issue.” Public consultation is being accepted until Monday, Jan. 21.

OPINION

Are Gray Partridge on the rebound? EMC lifestyle – Over the years we have experienced a number of changes in populations of local plants and animals. Some formerly rare species, such as Bald Eagles, have become surprisingly common. Others, such as Loggerhead Shrikes, have alarmingly declined. Foreign species have arrived and thrived, with some, Purple Loosestrife a notable example, finally falling into balance with native species. Others, such as Zebra Mussels, may have not yet had their day of glory. While those two foreign species arrived with indirect help from humans, others were brought here intentionally. Several members of the grouse family were deliberately released into our area with hopes they would eventually produce a population large enough to be hunted. Wild Turkeys were never here historically but were native to southwestern Ontario. However, Ring-necked Pheasants and Gray Partridge were brought here from Asia and

Michael Runtz Nature’s Way Europe. Gray Partridge were released in Ontario a number of times. The first was in 1909 when six birds were let go near Brantford. Between then and 1938, the year of the final release, nearly 4,000 were released. For a while the partridges did quite well, with populations booming near Brantford and through eastern Ontario including our region; by the late 1960s the eastern population was among the highest in the world. During the 1970s and early 1980s one regularly encoun-

tered groups of Gray Partridges (back then called ‘Hungarian Partridges’) between Renfrew and Carleton Place. Fields near the Arnprior Airport and along the Dwyer Hill Road were especially good sites, with winter the best season for viewing the tiny birds because the birds conspicuously ran across snowy fields and flocks fed on seeds along the shoulders of rural roads. But then their numbers be-

gan to drop. On our local Pakenham-Arnprior Christmas Bird Count, a total of 393 Gray Partridge were tallied on the 10 counts held between 1983 and 1992. But between 1993 and 2011 - a period involving 19 counts - only 36 individuals were recorded. Interestingly, Wild Turkeys were not present on the count until 1999 when 10 were seen. Their numbers quickly grew, with no fewer than 2,917 recorded on counts from 2005 to 2012 (669 were tallied on the 2012 count alone). Another interesting trend involves our only native grouse: between 2005 and present, 145 Ruffed Grouse were tallied on the counts. On the same number of counts prior to the appearance of Wild Turkeys, 285 were found. In case you were wondering, participation

on the count has increased in recent years; with better coverage, species counts should be biased toward higher, not lower, numbers. Thus, whether or not the introduction of turkeys has had a negative effect on their much smaller relatives is an open question. Despite the downward trend, on the recent Boxing Day count, 33 Gray Partridge were tallied. And recently readers have reported small groups near Stewartville and Kanata. Is it possible this species is making a comeback? Perhaps for our smallest partridge, the future is not clear, just gray! Be sure to check out the Macnamara Field Naturalists’ Club www.mfnc.ca.

Two-year-old girl struck by car in Glen Cairn Girl in serious but stable condition Blair Edwards blair.edwards@metroland.com

EMC news - A two-yearold girl was in serious and stable condition at CHEO after she was struck by a car in Glen Cairn on Jan. 10.

The girl suffered injuries to her head and arm and possible internal injuries. She was conscious and breathing when paramedics arrived. A second two-year-old girl was treated for minor bruises and is in stable condition at

CHEO. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not sure how the other (girl) suffered her injuries,â&#x20AC;? said J.P. Trottier, spokesperson for the Ottawa paramedics. Ottawa paramedics received a call at 8:49 a.m. on Jan. 10 about the collision near the intersection of McElroy Drive

and Rickey Place. The girls were in the care of a babysitter at the time of the collision. The child-care provider and a third child were not injured. Jessica Quennevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home is just a few feet in front of where the collision happened. She said she saw a stroller that

was missing a rear wheel on the road before police packed it up in one of their vehicles. She said motorists donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always follow the rules of the road at that specific threeway stop, which is frequented by children who walk to the nearby park. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cars rarely stop for stop

signs,â&#x20AC;? said Quenneville, a resident of two years. Ottawa police spokesman Const. Marc Soucy said no charges will be laid in the investigation, adding the driver of the vehicle was â&#x20AC;&#x153;blinded by the sunâ&#x20AC;? at the time of the collision. Files from Metro-Ottawa

Radio station posting sparks negative reaction â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;No one ever asks to be rapedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;: Prof. Nevil Hunt nevil.hunt@metroland.com

EMC news - An Ottawa rock radio station has posted a picture on its Facebook page that some people say crosses a line and a university instructor calls â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stone Age.â&#x20AC;? CHEZ posted a posed rear view photo of a woman wearing a skirt. Written on her leg are assessments of her virtue based on how high the skirt is hiked up her leg. The lowest word, written on the lower calf, is â&#x20AC;&#x153;matronly,â&#x20AC;? and nearer the modelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s buttocks are the words â&#x20AC;&#x153;asking for it,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;slutâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;whore.â&#x20AC;? The page has attracted comments on the Facebook page that criticize the posting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Asking for it? Really? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this type of sexism that allows girls to get raped. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;girl was asking for itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is not a defense. Nothing is asking for it, unless youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re literally asking for it. This is disgusting,â&#x20AC;? writes one visitor to the Facebook page. Another poster writes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;?Asking for itâ&#x20AC;?? Asking for what, exactly? Sexual abuse? How is a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s skirt length a cause/excuse for rape? This post is straight up sexist.â&#x20AC;? Some posts simply compliment the modelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legs. Carleton University associate professor Doris Buss studies

social issues and sexual violence. She called the radio stationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s posting â&#x20AC;&#x153;regressive.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Stone Age,â&#x20AC;? Buss said after reviewing the picture. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No one ever asks to be raped.â&#x20AC;? She said that when viewed as a political statement, the picture alone â&#x20AC;&#x153;calls attention to expectations placed on women.â&#x20AC;? But Buss added that the introductory

paragraph added by someone at CHEZ â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;girls in this city could use this reference guideâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; changes any political meaning into social criticism. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The words are calling on women to judge themselves,â&#x20AC;? Buss said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s behaviour is still regulated.â&#x20AC;? CHEZ program director Gayle Zarbatany called the stationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Facebook page

is â&#x20AC;&#x153;an extension of what we do on the radio.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The majority comes from other websites and from the listeners,â&#x20AC;? Zarbatany said of the content of the Facebook page. She said staff who post material should not post â&#x20AC;&#x153;racist, sexist or degradingâ&#x20AC;? material, adding that the picture of the model with words written on her leg does not cross that line.

Think twice before venturing onto the ice EMC news - Last winter, the Ottawa fire department responded to 49 calls for help from persons in distress, lost or feared drowned. The Ottawa Drowning Prevention Coalition wants to remind residents that when the temperatures go down, awareness of the dangers of being on or around ice and open water needs to go up. When water begins to freeze on rivers, lakes, the Rideau Canal and other open bodies of water it may look solid but is often still dangerous. If you want to go out onto the ice, remember the thickness should be: 15 cm for walking or skating alone; 20 cm

for skating parties or games; 25 cm for snowmobiles; 35 cm for fishing huts. As a guideline, clear blue ice is usually the strongest; white opaque or snow ice is half as strong as blue ice. Grey ice is unsafe. The greyness indicates the presence of water. Water levels this year are higher than usual and are accompanied by soft, slippery banks that are treacherous, particularly for young children, adults and the family pet. Before venturing onto the ice, check the Lifesaving Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guidelines for staying safe, and review guidelines by the Canadian Red Cross on what to do.

Cross Country Skiing at Mooney’s Bay

COURTESY OF METRO-OTTAWA

A Stittsville family man returned to this home on Jan. 15 to find his wife and two children dead.

Stittsville mother kills children, commits suicide Joe Lofaro Metro News

EMC news - A Stittsville father was completely “devastated” Monday night after learning his two children, aged six and 10, and his wife were dead in what police confirmed as a double murder-suicide. Insp. John Maxwell of the Ottawa police’s major case investigations unit said Tuesday investigators are still trying to determine exactly what events lead to the killing of Jon Alexander Corchis, 10, and Katheryn Elizabeth Corchis, six, and their mother Alison Constance Easton, 40. The father, Jon Corchis, was brought in for questioning after he made the grisly discovery upon arriving home at 25 Granite Ridge Dr. Emergency crews responded shortly after getting a 911 call at 5:30 p.m.

“God bless him and hopefully he can make it through this,” said Maxwell. Investigating this type of crime is rare for police, he added, but still “horrific.” “It’s everybody’s worst nightmare because it’s so sad. It’s a criminal act, but it’s on the human tragedy side of the balance,” he said. Maxwell said investigators have learned some information about what might have led to the incident, but declined to comment on it. Media reports said the mother had left behind two notes at the scene of the crime: one for her husband, one for police. STITTSVILLE PUBLIC SCHOOL

Maxwell said Ottawa Fire Services were first to respond to the single family home,

which is just a few feet away from Stittsville Public School, where the two children both attended. “Thank God there are men and women who go out there into the darkness like we do,” said Maxwell. “The first officers on scene, most of them have families. This is very difficult.” Autopsies for the mother and two kids were scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday. A cause of death will likely be known Wednesday. “This might seem like a cut and dry file. Not necessarily. That’s why we want to talk to a lot of people. Friends, family, acquaintances, and find if they saw anything along the way,” said Maxwell. Police said no one is in custody and no charges are expected to be laid. The investigation continues.

What’s great is that there is variety and they come with recipe ideas to make preparation a snap. Also, there is a built in cost savings of anywhere from 30 – 50 per cent. Why? It works a lot like a collective, with centralized buying and coordination; it’s open to everyone – with no membership fees. The Good Food Box is dedicated to selling quality fresh fruits and vegetables at wholesale prices as a means of sup-

porting greater access to low-cost local (as much as possible) quality food. In its drive to provide great food at low cost to everyone, the GFB mandate is entirely different than that of the Food Bank, which is dedicated to providing those in need with emergency food assistance. While the program itself originates in downtown Ottawa, let’s face it, access to healthy food is not an issue limited to those living in the urban core. Presently, we are looking to hear from people in the community that would have an interest in participating in the program, as a volunteer, or as a purchaser.

Champion OSU Force Academy 1997 Boys Lead OSU’s Disney Magic The Ottawa South United Force tested themselves against some of the best competition in North America over the holiday break, and the result was remarkable all around. The trip to Florida was particularly special for the 1997 boys, who came away with a Disney Soccer Showcase tournament championship in the preacademy division. “We always knew they were a strong group of boys, and I think finally everybody put it together,” says OSU general manager Jim Lianos. “They grew up as a team, and as individuals, at that tournament. They showed what they’re made of.” In the group stage, the Force played a scoreless match against their U.S. affiliate club, the Dallas Texans, beat a USSF academy team from Kendall, FL 1-0 and then topped an MLS DC United academy side 1-0, with Vana Markarian scoring the lone marker in both contests. OSU wound up facing the Ontario Cup and national champions from Dixie in the final, coming out with a 2-0 victory on goals by Yousef Aldaqqaq. The perfect defensive record throughout the event was partly the product of the team’s two standout centre backs, Sanchit Gupta and Charles Andrascik .“I’ve told the college coaches down there, ‘If you guys are looking for defenders on scholarships, take these two as a package and you’ll never have to worry about your central defense until they graduate,” Lianos highlights, calling the pair the two best central defender duo in Ontario. “They’re that good.” Minus a small handful, the group of players that went 12-2-4 in the Ontario Youth Soccer League last summer have all been together at OSU since age 8 or 9. The team’s coach is Russell Shaw. Also at Disney, the ’96 boys were undefeated in group play with a win and two ties, which moved them into the bronze medal match where they came back from a 3-1 deficit with 15 minutes left to win 4-3. “That’s a very good group of boys that showed a lot of character and determination to win the bronze,”Lianos notes. The ’96 boys were also competitive in one-goal losses in the U15/16 USSF Academy Division, and the ’98 girls went 1-2. Simply being invited to take part in the #1-Ranked Showcase Tournament in North America puts the participants in elite company. “Even I am surprised about how quickly tangible and consistent success has come,” says OSU president Bill Michalopulos, whose club turns 10 years old this year. “It just goes to show you what an organized program and passionate OSU players and coaches can do.

“The best thing is that OSU is providing opportunities and we are very pleased to see our players and teams taking advantage of them.”

Algonquin Land claim milestone reached, but final agreement still few years away Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

EMC news - The three groups negotiating an Ontario Algonquin land claims settlement have released what they’ve called a draft agreementin-principle (AIP). Even if the document, worked out by Algonquin representatives and the provincial and federal governments, is accepted by all sides, it could still take another four or five years before a final settlement is in place, says lawyer Bob Potts, the chief negotiator for the Algonquins of Ontario. But public meetings, to provide an overview of the draft AIP and field questions, are expected to take place in February or March in eight communities: Pembroke, Perth, Mattawa, Toronto, Ottawa, Kingston, Bancroft and North Bay. “It is still a preliminary draft,” said Potts. “The intention is to have some discussions with the public at large, including the Algonquin public, to make sure we’re heading in the right direction.” Eventual approval would have to come from the more than 8,000 registered voters from 10 Algonquin communities (including Pikwakanagan, Greater Golden Lake, Bonnechere Algonquins, and Whitney and Area Algonquins), and then from the Ontario and federal governments. The draft deal suggests the Algonquins would receive 184 square miles of Crown land in eastern Ontario and $300 million. “The preliminary draft AIP just released for public review is not a final product,” stressed Durga Thiru, senior issues co-ordinator at the provincial Ministry of Aboriginal Affairs. “Although it is a milestone in the negotiation process, additional public consultation is being

undertaken by the parties before a final draft AIP will be completed. “Once that occurs, the Algonquins will prepare to put the draft AIP to a vote of their membership, possibly in mid-2013.” After that, there will be more negotiations. “If approved by all three parties, an AIP will form the basis for a number of years of negotiations and public consultations in crafting a Final Settlement Agreement,” said Thiru. “Such a Final Settlement Agreement would have to be formally approved by all three parties. If approved by the three parties, and then given legal force through legislation, a lengthy process of implementing the terms of a Final Agreement would begin.” Last week, Brian Crane, the chief negotiator for the Ontario government, and Potts both spoke to The West Carleton Review-EMC about the draft AIG. If approved, this agreement would be the first Aboriginal land claim to result in a treaty in Ontario since 1924. With the treaty, Crane said he believes “the conditions for the Algonquins will improve immensely and the business climate will improve. It’s a major piece of unfinished business, to get this resolved for Ontario and for Canada as well.” Major components of the draft agreement include the provision of land, harvesting rights and a financial package. Harvesting rights refer to hunting, fishing and trapping, including rights to do so in Algonquin Provincial Park according to guidelines that include a fish management plan. Crane says there will be no change in Algonquin Provincial Park administration, but the Algonquins are to be consulted on the park’s use

and development, possibly through an Algonquin central liaison group. Economic development is a major theme of the agreement, with $300 million (based on December 2011 values and adjusted for inflation upon transfer) scheduled to go to an Algonquin institution or institutions. Also, land transferred to the Alqonquins will be subject to local municipal taxes, but not until it is developed. Some financial compensation will also have to be provided to the County of Renfrew, from the provincial and federal governments, for more than 30,000 acres of land in the Jacks Lake area, just east of Round Lake, in Killaloe, Hagarty and Richards Township and Laurentian Valley. This map, and others that are part of the draft AIG, can be viewed at www.aboriginalaffairs. gov.on.ca. The website features 11 maps, including map G for Renfrew County proposed Algonquin settlement lands. The website also features the entire text of the draft AIP. Land proposed for transfer includes more than 200 parcels of provincial Crown land ranging in size from a few acres to more than 30,000 acres, for a total of not less than 117,500 acres. The Algonquins would also have the right to purchase certain specified Crown lands in the future, should Ontario decide to sell them. Lands proposed for transfer include Westmeath (Bellows Bay) Provincial Park, which will be renamed by the Algonquins and Ontario. A final agreement would also establish a recommended addition to Lake St. Peter Provincial Park and a recommended provincial park in the Crotch Lake area. Coun. John Inglis, Frontenac County’s representative on the Algonquin Land Claims Municipal Council, said he was optimistic upon hearing the terms of the AIP. “They (the Algonquins) aren’t asking for an excessive settlement, but there is a lot of money involved that will be spent somewhere, perhaps on land and perhaps on development,” he said. “It’s really an attempt,” says Potts of the AIG, “to provide certainty and clarity to the rights within the Algonquins in the settlement area … and it provides a roadmap for an ongoing relationship with those people that share that area

with them. The more than $300 million in financial payout, said Potts, is to be used for economic development, to supplement social services, to stimulate social programs yet to be developed, to provide future education and other stimuli for Algonquins for generations to come. Putting the eventual treaty together, says Potts, is probably a three- or four-year process. The treaty would then be subject to approval by the Ontario and federal governments before becoming constitutionally-entrenched. The negotiator says it’s important the general public in the affected areas “needs to know that this is a piece of unfinished business that has been waiting to be finalized for a very long period of time. It was started by people to bring this to conclusion almost a quarter of a millennium ago. “We’re doing our best to reconcile these various issues. I can tell the people that are not a part of the direct negotiations … that we have made a real honest effort to put together an agreement that would be fair to the Algonquins while not overly intrusive to the public that we recognize are our neighbours in the region.” Some of the AIG’s other highlights include: • Ontario would transfer absolute ownership of identified settlement land parcels to one or more Algonquin institutions. This form of ownership would be the same, subject to certain exceptions, as all other private lands in the province, and would include mineral rights. • Canada and Ontario would retain ownership of the beds of navigable waters that are on settlement lands. • Ontario would not transfer public roads, but may transfer some unopened road allowances which it owns. Ontario would not transfer road allowances owned by a municipality, but municipalities may transfer some road allowances under their jurisdiction. • Interests on settlement lands existing at the time of transfer would continue on those lands after transfer to an Algonquin institution. Existing interests include, but are not limited to, hunt camps, public utilities, trap lines, mining leases and claims, and aggregate licences. With files from Craig Bakay

Public school board chair seeks the Ontario NDP nomination

OPEN HOUSE Sunday, Jan. 20, 2013 2 – 4 PM. 208 DEERWOOD DRIVE, KINBURN - $469,900

Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - Jennifer McKenzie, chairwoman of Ottawa’s public school board, has announced her intention to seek the provincial New Democratic Party’s nomination in Ottawa Centre. McKenzie, a former electrical engineer who has served as chairwoman of the board for two years and trustee for Kitchissippi/Somerset for six, cited recent decisions by the McGuinty Liberals as her motivation for running. She joins former Ottawa city councillor Alex Cullen in contention for the nomination. Recent labour strife between the provincial government and the public elementary and secondary school boards factors heavily into McKenzie’s decision, which was made after “a lot of time, and careful consideration.” “I think it’s the right thing to do,” said McKenzie. “We’ve been caught in the middle – normally we would be partners in the bargaining process.” The Ottawa-Centre riding has been held by Liberal Yasir Naqvi since 2007. McKenzie’s dissatisfaction with the governing Liberals goes beyond the current tension between the public boards and the province, which was heightened by the imposition of Bill 115 and the subsequent job action initiated by the teacher unions. “Public education is one

Wynne looks to win McGuinty’s job

Liberal leadership contender makes campaign stop in Cobden Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

EMC news - Attendance was strong at local leadership election meetings last weekend, as the six candidates for Ontario Liberal Party leader looked to garner support. The combined results showed front-runners Kathleen Wynne and Sandra Pupatello still in that position. One of Wynne’s most successful riding was Renfrew-NipissingPembroke, which she visited Saturday night at Cobden’s West Way Bar & Grill. There she met with Liberal party supporters, including some local voting delegates. The Don Valley West MPP also had an opportunity to meet with local teachers, following the recent and controversial implementation of Bill 115 to impose contracts on teachers across the province who did not have agreements in place. In Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke last Saturday, 88 Liberals were eligible to vote, of which 40 did. Seventy per cent, or 28 votes, went to Wynne and another 25 per cent (or 10 votes) to Pupatello. Single votes went to former MPP and MP Gerard Kennedy, who finished second to Dalton McGuinty in a bid

for the Liberal Party leadership, and St. Paul’s MPP Eric Hoskins. Following a coin toss in Kennedy’s favour, Wynne has 11 local voting delegates, Pupatello four and Kennedy one. The other candidates are Mississauga South MPP Charles Sousa and Mississauga Erindale MPP Harinder Takhar. Local delegates at the leadership convention Jan 25 to 27 in Toronto will include Derek Nighbor, who lost a close Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke election to Conservative John Yakabuski in 2003. The other ‘Wynne’ delegates are Lucille and Patrick Nighbor, Meredith Caplan Jamieson, Barry Robinson, Izett McBride, Gail Richardson, Maggie Conway, Louise Edmonds, Kevin Dunbar and Rebecca Jean Dunbar. A total of 1,837 Liberal Party members cast ballots last weekend, including Derek Nighbor, who grew up in Pembroke and now works in Toronto for the Food and Consumer Products of Canada. “I’m supporting Kathleen because she’s a proven leader,” said Nighbor. “She’s compassionate, she’s thoughtful, she knows her issues.

At this stage, the Ontario Liberal Party needs a little bit of renewal, we need some ideas, and I think Kathleen is going to be a big part of bringing that to bear.”

As many Liberal Party supporters know, the 59-year-old Wynne is married to Jane Routhwaite. Wynne also has three children and two grandchildren. The Toronto Star said “being openly gay could hurt her chances, either in winning the leadership or in a general election to follow.” Lake Dore resident Tom Adamchick, who’s president

of the local federal Liberal Party Riding Association, said he likes Wynne’s candidacy for premier largely because many of her cabinet portfolios have involved issues that resonate in Renfrew County. Another delegate is Eganville resident Meredith Caplan Jamieson whose family has been closed tied to the world of politics. Her brother (David) is a former member of Premier McGuinty’s cabinet, while her mother (Elinor) was a provincial or federal member of Parliament from 1985 to 2004. Until last May both Meredith and husband Rob Jamieson were members of the Liberal Party’s federal executive. After getting to known Wynne over the last several years, Meredith says the Don Valley MPP is a real consensus-builder who brings people to the table. “She’s a politician for all people —urban, rural, minority, majority. She has an amazing way of connecting with people,” said Jamieson. The first candidate in the leadership race was Glen Murray, who was in Cobden last Saturday. Heading into the later stages of the leadership campaign, Murray said Wynne is conciliatory, thoughtful and

full of integrity. WYNNE’S COMMENTS “I know we’ve got momentum, and there’s lots that can happen on the convention floor, but the first step was to get delegates from each of the ridings, and you guys have done just a fabulous job, and I’m very, very grateful,” said Wynne. “I’m grateful because I want to go on to represent you … We can go a couple of ways. We can be more divided and continue on a path of rural versus urban, and buy into that kind of divisiveness. B “We all want great education. We all want great health care. We all need to invest in infrastructure, so business will come to Ontario, so that business comes to all parts of the province. And we’re only going to do that if we work together.” Wynne also spoke out about the importance of needing the Liberals to continue to govern. She said she’s ready for an election, if it happens, but it’s more important to continue to govern and get things done. Alluding to the teachers sitting in the same room, she added, “We have some bridges to build.”

New public school announced for north Kanata Earl of March and South March schools to undergo needed expansions Jessica Cunha and Jennifer McIntosh jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - The province gave the green light for a new public elementary school in north Kanata on Monday, Jan. 14. As well, Earl of March Secondary School and South March Public School are both slated for expansions, as is Longfields-Davidson Heights Secondary School in Barrhaven and Mutchmor Public School in the Glebe. The province is providing $47.9 million of capital funding for the Ottawa public school board. Northern Kanata has long been in need of more spaces

for students. “Now the province has recognized that,” said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson. The new elementary school will house kindergarten students up to Grade 6, said Wilkinson. The location of the school hasn’t been determined yet, she added. South March will receive a 10-room expansion and an addition for grades 7 and 8 students will be constructed at Earl of March. “My understanding is they’re going to build a (grades) 7 and 8 attachment closer to The Parkway,” said Wilkinson, during her ward council meeting on Jan. 14.

A north Kanata accommodation review committee spent more than a year researching and debating various solutions to the overcrowding of public schools in the area. More than 800 extra seats were said to be needed for September 2012 and 1,750 required by 2014. A plan to ease the overcrowding – which included a new school, and the additions for South March and Earl of March, was approved by Ottawa public school board trustees in April last year. Former Kanata trustee Cathy Curry presented a motion that included approval for a new elementary school for Kanata north along with

an eight-room addition at South March Public School and an addition to the Earl of March Secondary School. “This is great news for our students, staff and community,” said Bronwyn Funiciello, vice-chair of the school board, in a press release. “The board of trustees worked very hard to develop a capital priorities list that reflected the diversity of capital needs in our district. Today’s announcement will provide great opportunities for innovation in our learning environments.” Construction is set to begin in 2014, with opening dates the following year if everything runs according to

EMC news – Ontario’s public school teachers backed away from walking out of class to take part in political protests Wednesday and last Friday, but they are continuing the fight against Bill 115. And that leaves the fate of extra-curricular activities for students very much up in the air. Both public school elementary and secondary students are being urged by their unions to forego involvement in extra-curriculars for now, and perhaps as long as two years, if the provincial government doesn’t relent on its

decision to impose contracts on them through Bill 115. However, as the teachers are no longer in a legal strike position, the unions can’t force them to not participate in sports, drama, music, clubs, field trips and the like. Nevertheless, only a very few teachers have so far renewed their extra-curricular activities, although some teams have resumed play with community volunteers at the helm. At West Carleton Secondary School, the school’s basketball team has resumed its season, and the team was to play in a tournament this weekend. Community volunteers have stepped in to assist with the team. R0011861139_0117

STUDENTS BENEFIT Donna Blackburn, the trustee for Barrhaven, said prior to the official announcement she was excited about the possibility of an expansion of the school. “I think everyone in the community worked really hard to see this project become a reality,” she said. “The process worked.” Ottawa Centre MPP Yasir Naqvi announced the funding at Mutchmor Public School. “I’m pleased that the students at the Ottawa Carleton

District School Board will benefit from our investments to provide better school buildings,” Naqvi said in a press release. “We know that when students are in good learning environments, they can focus on their learning.” The province’s Minister of Education, Laurel Broten said the funding would ensure students would have safe and modern places to learn and grow. “Investing in our schools is critical to helping every student reach his or her full potential and succeed,” she said.

She also holds up a deer hoof brought along for the walk. The hoof came from a deer that was killed on the road, she says. Vegetation visited during the walk included a sugar maple. Weber identified the maple as one of two trees whose opposite branches appear on every stem. The other is ash. Then she comes to a speckled alder plant, where she tells the group that one can use a knife to peel back the bark and use scrapings to clean oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teeth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It tastes bad,â&#x20AC;? concludes one youngster after a brief taste-test.

The words come from 88year-old naturalist Martha Webber, as she watches three laughing youngsters plunk themselves in the snow during Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nature walk at the Carp Ridge Learning Centre. But adults and snow go together, too, as this walk through the woods for more than a dozen people included several adults. The walk lasted only 45 minutes, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only because the first hour was spent bottling water in film canisters and then in different fabrics (to determine their insulation factor) and building an igloo-like structure known as a quinzee snow shelter. Youngsters and adults dug into the pile of snow, left by the snow plow, to create their own refuge from the elements. The answer to the bottled water experiment came at the end of the walk, when it was shown that wool was vastly superior to denim (cotton) and a reminder that people need to dress in the right material when outdoors. While explaining the purpose of the experiment, sixyear-old Sacha Hess asked, to smiles from adults in the group, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is that science?â&#x20AC;? The cost of the walk is $3 per person, or $10 per family of four or fewer, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth every penny, said Carp residents Anne Bonidan and Marc Lucas who came out with their daughters Claire and Madeline. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We come out often,â&#x20AC;? said Lucas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been out

while equating the taste with that of commercial root beer. Following the walk, Webber offered boiled tea made from pine needles and linden flowers. The latter are abundant in Ottawa parks, says Webber, largely because they provide such good shade. Those relaxing indoors after Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s walk included Ottawa residents Detlef Hess and Nancy Elias, their children Annika and Sacha, and one of their daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crosscountry ski friends. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was wonderful, the combination of being outdoors, hearing interpretations, and the tips and tidbits,â&#x20AC;? sais Elias. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was great.

The native of Maine received her masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in botany from the University of New Hampshire about 60

Naturalist Martha Webber stops under a white pine tree, during Sunday’s nature walk, to ask how many pine needles there are in each cluster. The answer is five. STEVE NEWMAN/METROLAND

Sunday’s nature walk ended with a few minutes indoors to relax and enjoy this tea made from linden flowers and pine needles. Linden flowers appear on trees in parks throughout the City of Ottawa.

the Art of Seeing. He scrutinizes the book’s illustrations of different wildlife tracks. Meanwhile, Webber wraps up the day by asking no one in particular what three things are best taken into the wild, in case one is injured or lost. Her answer is an orange garbage bag, a whistle and a kerchief (or large handkerchief). The bag is visible and can serve as a great insulator. Three blasts of the

whistle are an excellent way to identify one’s location and to say, “I need help.” And the kerchief can serve as a head cover or as a rope to tie things together. Whatever Sunday it is, Webber says she hopes the walks are fun and heighten awareness of our surroundings, especially for children. “I want them to be aware of what’s out there,” says Webber, who recently received the Dorothy Walter Award for

Leadership from the Council of Outdoor Educators of Ontario. The award was for developing leadership qualities in Ontario youth through outdoor education.

Ward 5 West Carleton-March ROUTE

203

FROM

In January 2012 OC Transpo introduced a FREE to ride Wednesdayonly bus route that provides Ward 5 residents with a convenient way to get into town for shopping, doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appointments, etc. Since its inception, Route 203 has steadily increased its ridership. Through 2012, Route 203 provided 522 customer trips between the rural and urban areas (one person making a round trip counts as two trips). The Route has carried more customers than any of the other three new rural shoppersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; routes that were introduced in 2012 (Routes 201-Richmond, 202-Cumberland, and 204-Metcalfe). Ridership on Route 203 in fall of 2012 was up by 13 percent over ridership in the summer months. December was the busiest month, with 20 customer trips made on the three Wednesdays before Christmas. I encourage residents to give it a try and see for yourself how convenient it is! For a detailed map outlining the route, visit my website at www.eliel-chantiry.ca. Residents can double-check the route beforehand to make sure itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on schedule (especially on inclement weather days) by calling OC Transpo at 613-741-4390 or by visiting www.octranspo.ca.

Man faces arson charge in Arnprior Hart fire Sherry Haaima Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

EMC news - A 24-yearold McNab-Braeside man has been charged with setting a Dec. 28 fire that damaged contents in the Hart store and forced a store closure that is still in effect. Arnprior OPP announced earlier this week that the suspect has been charged with arson-damage to property, and mischief over $5,000. Jason Dennis was released on an appearance notice for court in Renfrew on Jan. 30. Firefighters and police were called to the store mid-morning that Friday to deal with the fire that witnesses say appeared to have been started in the back area of the store near the toy section where the wool is kept. The mall manager and a witness used extinguishers to try to quell the small fire, but smoke quickly forced them out. Firefighters and police evacuated the mall, got the fire under control and worked to rid the store and mall of thick smoke. STORE CLOSED

While most of the mall reopened Saturday, Hart remains closed. Hart regional supervisor

John Pinkerton said the store is expected to be closed for at least several more weeks as clean-up continues. “We’re still dealing with the situation of cleaning up and assessing where do we go from here,” said Pinkerton. Smoke and water damage were incurred in the incident but a dollar figure has not been attached to the fire as of yet, he said. Arnprior Fire Chief John Okum said a member of the public had come forward to raise concerns about the evacuation procedures in place at the mall. Further investigation revealed, said Okum, that no one pulled the fire alarm as the evacuation was taking place. Announcements were made over the mall’s PA system and when Hart’s sprinkler system activated, the alarms sounded automatically, said Okum. “Basically the system operated as intended,” he said. “All systems worked in accordance with regulations.” The fire department will complete a full inspection of the shopping centre, said Okum. The Ontario Fire Marshal’s office was also involved in the investigation. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact OPP Det. Const. Trevor Nicholas at 613-623-3131 or 1-888-310-1122.

Wark spends a lot of time studying the latest trends and attending fashion shows in New York. She offers a few insights into this spring’s new looks. “For women it’s metallics,” she said, adding that silvers and golds are typically Christmas colours, but not in 2013. “Metallics in all designs. And Hawaiian prints. And hibiscus prints.”

Step two is shopping. The most com-

five ways. That saves space.” She doesn’t go so far as to say a wardrobe will change the world. But it can help with confidence and ensure that allimportant first impression is a good one. “How you present yourself is just as important, in the very beginning, as what you do after,” Wark said. A good wardrobe is a good investment, she suggested.

mon mistake men make is fitting. It doesn’t make much sense to Wark to purchase an expensive suit if it isn’t tailored right. The same holds true for all articles of clothing. The most common mistake for woman is not understanding their body type. It should be about directing attention to the most flattering parts of the body while downplaying other areas. She is quick to add that there are exceptions to every rule. Step three is mixing and matching. Wark teaches clients how to get better mileage out of individual items. She also specializes in economizing a wardrobe for travel. “It gives them time to think of other things instead of what to pack in a bag,” she said. “You can wear the same pants

way deliberately. She says she keeps her prices low to be accessible by people of all income levels. “Because of discounts I get on clothes, what they pay me is usually covered,” Wark said. She walks clients through a three-step process. First they sit and chat so she can get a feel for what they are like. Wark is careful not to smother their individuality; she just aims to give it a boost. She goes through the client’s closet, getting rid of some items while reorganizing others. They make a shopping list together. “People only use about 20 per cent of what’s in their closet,” Wark said. “Think of the money you are spending.”

EMC business – A Blouse Story. A blouse is on a hook in a shop, feeling it serves no purpose in life. “Sigh.” Then one day the blouse is taken off the hook, tried on, and is put in a bag. The blouse is taken to a permanent home. It is worn for the first time. It is suddenly made to feel it has purpose. In return, its new master feels confident. It somehow magically brings a winning smile to its master’s face. The master lands a new job wearing the blouse. The blouse is worn frequently as part of a go-to outfit. The master starts taking better care of herself. She eats better. She goes out with friends more often. Maybe she meets that someone special. Her life is changed for the better. “All because of a blouse,” said Erica Wark, a personal stylist and fashion journalist from Carp who appears regularly on national television. “It’s incredible to see their self-esteem grow each time I see them.” A Blouse Story is fiction, of course, but not far from the truth in Wark’s world. Along with about 20 appearances as the official fashionista on CBC’s Steven and Chris show, Wark’s home business just outside the Village of Carp sees her lending advice as a personal stylist. Doctors, politicians, stayat-home moms: the twentysomething’s clientele is as varied as the clothing and accessory combinations she is puts together. She does it that

She also mentioned a 1960’s influence this year, specifically the Twiggy-inspired shiftdress. Asked if fashion follows the zeitgeist, the current sociopolitical scene coming from populist roots; or if it comes from top-down; Wark said designers tend to follow the lead of three or four top designers, Karl Lagerfeld and others. So, how does a girl from a village in the Ottawa Valley land in the spectacular CBC building in downtown Toronto? “Talent and chemistry, I guess,” said Wark. “That’s the only way someone like me, from little Carp, gets the opportunity to appear on national television.” Before Steven and Chris, Wark was a regular guest on a similar-type show in Ottawa. The producer of the Roger’s show called the Steven and Chris producer and said she had “it.” She was invited to audition. Wark hit it off immediately upon meeting Chris. A couple of hours later while passing Brockville on Highway 401, she got the call. “I was crying in the car,” she said. “They are both so down to earth. They get along just as well off camera as on. And they never forget how lucky they are. They’re really Canadian that way.” Wark’s website is ericawark. com.

EMC news - Dunrobin’s Janis Miller Hall is the feature artist for the Kanata Civic Art Gallery’s newest exhibit, running from Jan. 9 to Feb. 10. The hanging, entitled “Wintery Tapestry,” is special because it’s the last exhibit before the Beaverbrook library closes for renovations. Both organizations are located in the Mlacak Centre but the gallery and other services offered will remain open to the public during construction. “The library closes mid February and it will affect the gallery significantly,” said Hall, adding less people will visit the centre. “We have to constantly remind people that we’re still there and still open.” At least half a dozen of Hall’s work will be on display during the exhibit, which feature wintery scenes both at home and abroad. “Even though the show coming up is called Winter Tapestry, a few of the paintings will be of winter in the south,” said Hall, who lived in the Bahamas for three years. One of her favourite pieces is a large painting entitled Escape the Blues and features a beach in Mexico during the winter months. “There’s a peacefulness to it,” said Hall, adding she tends

to go south every winter. “It’s the lighting that’s different; the quality of the light,” she said of why she enjoys painting the sea. “And just the colours, the colours are so intense; all the aquas and the turquoises of the sea. Whereas here, especially during winters in Canada, our colours are very muted.” ‘PAINTING WITH BUTTER’ Hall, a member of the Kanata gallery since its inception, mainly uses oils and pastels but also enjoys working with mixed media, encaustics, landscapes and figures. “I started working with pastels mainly because I love to draw. I am a realist artist so drawing is really important to me,” she said, adding pastels lend themselves to lots of colour. “Oils I like because the feel of them … it’s almost like painting with butter. They have a very luscious feel and they’re really rich and intense. They have a look, a more luminous look than some of the more modern paints.” Hall also works with models one day a week drawing figures. “That’s like, for me, a musician doing scales,” she said. “The figure work is the most challenging because of the

way we judge it … If you get an aspect of the human figure wrong, everybody recognizes that.” She said having “really good art teachers” in high school helped her pursue her career choice. She attended the University of Toronto for fine arts and took the creative arts program at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ont. Aside from creating art, Hall teaches classes at Wallack’s Art Supply in Bells Corners and works part time on the sales floor. “It’s very helpful working for a company that works in art supplies,” she said, adding she enjoys teaching her classes. “It’s so much fun. I probably get as much from them as they get from me. The enthusiasm, a lot of people in the class tend to be retired people … their enthusiasm when they achieve something, they’re just thrilled.” Hall is also a member of the Kanata Artists Studio Tour, which invites the public to visit artists in their homes and takes place every spring. “Art is important to me, culture is important. It’s all around us,” said Hall. The Kanata Civic Art Gallery, located at 2500 Campeau Dr. in the Mlacak Centre, hosts a new exhibition every month.

Warriors Atom B3 team undefeated in tournament Confident local goalie posts back-to-back shutouts EMC sports - The West Carleton Warriors Atom B3 team won the Barry’s Bay and Area Minor Hockey Association annual Atom House tournament on Jan. 12, running the table with three straight wins. After winning their first two league games after the Christmas Break, the Warriors were on a roll, and combined tough defense with timely offense to take the title against the other seven Upper Valley teams in attendance. The “A” final saw the Warriors face off against the previously unbeaten Petawawa Gladiators. West Carleton prevailed by a score of 3-0. Liam O’Rourke stopped all shots to earn his second shutout of the day. His biggest moment was a huge glove save in the first period on Petawawa’s star defenceman. West Carleton opened the scoring on Noah Horner’s blast on which he beat the screened goaltender in the first frame. Tyler Boyce earned the assist. The Warriors marked two in the second. Owen Brown added a goal on a nice give and go with Dylan Pederson to make it 2-0. Cole Snider completed the scoring, buring a rebound; Boyce and Cole

in the opener, looking confident between the pipes blocking all Renfrew attempts. The Warriors got goals from Coulas on a blast from the point, a Pederson lifter, Paul on an end-to-end rush, Coulas with a another boomer from defense, Brown on a bouncer that hit two defenders before entering the net, and a buzzer beater with four seconds left off a face off for Justin Windich. WINNING CONTINUES

SUBMITTED

The B3 Warriors team took gold at a recent Barry’s Bay tournament. In the back row are trainer Ted Windich, assistant coaches Lars Horner and Glen Farriginton, and head coach Erik Ade. In the middle row are Cole Farrington, Noah Horner, Conrad Coulas, Connor Eades, and Jason Ade. In the front row are Tyler Boyce, Justin Windich, Cole Snider, Dylan Pederson, Owen Brown, and Evan Paul. The goalie is Liam O’Rourke. Farrington earned assists. Excellent back checking and continued pressure in their opponent’s end made it a near perfect game for the Warriors. MVPs of the final saw Evan

Paul recognized for his stellar work on defence, while Conrad Coulas also got a nod for his ability rushing the puck and setting plays up offensively. In order to get to the final, the

Warriors opened up with a 60 win over Renfrew Barker’s Motors and a tough 4-3 victory in the semi-finals over the host Barry’s Bay Grizzlies. O’Rourke earned a shutout

Owen Brown MVP Brown got the nod in the game as most valuable. The semi-final against the local team was an exciting game, with the Atom B3 Warriors edging the Grizzlies 4-3. Boyce opened the scoring in the first on a nice wrister, with an assist going to Paul. The first period saw several good chances both ways, and O’Rourke made a big save on a breakaway to keep in at 1-0 for West Carleton. Barry’s Bay evened things up early in the second with a power play goal to make it 1-1. Coulas had several hard shots from the point, but couldn’t beat the Grizzlies

goalie. Another great rush by Paul resulted in a goal to put WC out front, but a second goal by Barry’s Bay #15 evened it up at 2-2. A big goal by Brown, fired through the five hole and assisted by Pederson and Windich put the Warriors ahead in the third. A pivotal goal by Boyce, which was the result of a Coulas rush up the ice was some insurance to make it 4-2. After Barry’s Bay top player scored his third for the hat trick, it was hard work of the Warriors, including some tenacious fore-checking by centreman Jason Ade, resulting in the Grizzlies being hemmed in their own end and preventing the tying marker, allowing the Warriors to advance to the A final. Connor Eades was recognized in this game for his strong defensive work and puck-handling skills and received MVP honours. The tournament win is a first for the team, as they were finalists earlier in the season in the Nepean tournament, losing out in their final game there. Coach Erik Ade said, after the tournamentvictory said he was proud of the team and it was a “heck of a win.”

Carp and Kinburn skiers racing at Calabogie Peaks this season EMC sports – The Calabogie Ski Racing Club (CSRC) has opened up another race season with several members from Carp and Kinburn. After a fall dryland training program, the athletes were keen to get out on the snow. Thanks to Mother Nature and excellent snow-making at Calabogie Peaks, the racers started carving it up in midDecember. They have just wrapped up an intensive race camp at Calabogie Peaks, which ran almost every day through the Christmas holidays. CSRC is a competitive alpine ski racing program focused on the development of youth into competitive athletes and responsible young adults. The club is athletecentered, which encourages personal growth and develops individual potential. Athletes race within the National Capital Division of Alpine Ontario, against racers from other ski hills in Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec. CRSC is offering five age divisions this year: U10, ages 8-9; U12, ages 10-11; U14, ages 12-13; and U16, ages 1415. Calabogie’s racers come from all over Eastern Ontario, from Carp to Pembroke, and as far away as Kingston, Manotick, and Kemptville. The racers will spend the next few weekends training to compete in upcoming slalom and giant slalom races. In slalom, racers navigate tight courses by pulling off quick short-radius turns, whereas in giant slalom the turns are longer and the speed greater.

Outdoor hockey â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;game onâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in Fitzroy West Carletonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unique Outdoor Hockey League (OHL) season opened Jan. 5 with games in Constance Bay, Dunrobin and Fitzroy. West Carleton is host to Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only outdoor hockey league east of Saskatchewan. This year there are 17 co-ed teams in four age groups, from 5-15, representing the Bay, Dunrobin, Fitzroy, and Kinburn. The OHL is a pure fun and recreation league, with no body-checks, slap-shots, score-keeping, standings, game records and time-keeping. It features informal refereeing where whistles are rare and most teams go the season without a penalty. In first-week action at the Fitzoy Harbour Community Centre Rink, clockwise from above, Fitzroy 13-15-aged goalie Jesse Ottens takes shots in practice; Fitzroy 5-7 coach Michael Arnkvarm praises his charges; Kinburn 5-7 coaches Trevor Barton and Shawn Rebertz join their team in the after-game handshake; and Kinburn 13-15 forwards try to penetrate the Fitzroy defense.

Live at the Met opera series coming to the O’Brien Theatre John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

EMC entertainment – The opera in the Upper Ottawa Valley? Yes, the opera is coming to Arnprior, and by popular demand. O’Brien Theatre owner Kevin Marshall has arranged to show five operas from New York’s famous Metropolitan Opera in his theatre over the next five months. The series begins Satur-

day, Jan. 26 with Donizetti’s L’Elisir d’Amore. Four more operas will follow on the last Saturday of each month, all showings at 1 p.m. Marshall, who admits he isn’t a big opera fan, checked into the movies that are recorded live at the Met when asked about them by a few patrons. He viewed one of the opera movies in a city theatre and determined the recent major digital upgrading of his equipment makes it possible for him to run them.

“They are pretty popular in Ottawa, so I thought they might be popular in the Valley as well,” he said, noting the operas are not offered anywhere else in the Upper Ottawa Valley. He starting asking on his big screen prior to regular movies if there was any interest, “and I got a lot of response.” So he presented a free movie of the famous opera ‘Carmen’ on Dec. 22, attracting about 30 patrons on

a wintery afternoon that deterred some out-of-town opera-lovers from attending. At that time he distributed information about the ‘Live at the Met’ encore presentations. The amount of support, especially from the Almonte area, prompted him to offer the five-part series starting this month. More than 100 people have indicated they will attend. The movie operas are very well done, said Marshall, noting the film-makers are expe-

rienced, as they have been shooting them for 20 years. “It’s like watching a play.” He said many opera enthusiasts feel the atmosphere at an historic theatre such as the O’Brien is a much better place to watch an opera than a modern box theatre in Ottawa. The cost is $20 for each opera, or $85 for all five. If the interest is there, the O’Brien Theatre may do a full ‘Live at the Met’ series for 2013-14, Marshall said.

It’s even possible to use Blu-ray disc technology to broadcast operas live from the Met as they are happening. There are some challenges to overcome, but if the interest is there, “I’ll seriously look at it,” he said. This O’Brien Theatre’s winter-spring’s opera series continues Feb. 23 with Verdi’s Otello, March 30 with Verdi’s Aida, April 27 with Donizetti’s Maria Stuarda and May 25 with Verdi’s Rigoletto.

Years ago gaming was a solitary activity, but due to the Internet, gamers can now play and create together. For example, games like LittleBigPlanet 2 encourage players to create their own levels to share and play with other gamers around the world. * Video games provide positive reinforcement. The activity encourages children to improve their skills, and then this improvement is rewarded

by advancing in the game. Learning the importance of practice and discipline will help kids during school and other hobbies. * Video games build teamwork. Most are now designed with cooperative play options. Whether it’s solving puzzles together, or being on the same hockey team, video games give kids a number of different ways to constructively work together. * Video games bring families together.

EMC news - Kiwanis volunteers are hoping to save children’s lives by eliminating maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT). MNT is a painful infection that claims the lives of 59,000 newborns in some of the most impoverished regions of the world. Choosing to take up the fight here at home, the passionate Kiwanis volunteers are raising funds to support global efforts to vaccinate and protect millions of women and children. And the global vaccination campaign is working. Burkina Faso, China, Guinea-Bissau, Liberia, Senegal, Tanzania and Timor Leste all eliminated tetanus in 2012. These are major achievements. “Kiwanis members believe we can change the world one child and one community at a time,” said John Flook, president of the Kiwanis Club of Nepean. “That’s why we’re proud to work with UNICEF Canada, knowing that the simple act of buying tetanus vaccines will not only save a child’s life, but protect future generations.” UNICEF and Kiwanis International launched the Eliminate Project in 2010 to eradicate MNT by the year 2015.

Condo bubble not ready to burst in Ottawa Condo construction will stabilize next year, but demand remains high Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - With towers popping up across the city, is the condominium bubble about to burst in Ottawa ? The answer at a recent real estate conference was â&#x20AC;&#x153;no.â&#x20AC;? At the Hampton Inn in Overbrook on Nov. 8, a couple of hundred local real estate professionals responded with confused murmurs when a senior Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation market analyst asked if there are too many condos being built in the city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The answer is no,â&#x20AC;? continued Abdul Kargbo of the CMHC. While the supply of condo units for sale has been rising since 2001, the percentage of unsold units has remained flat, Kargbo said, indicating that so far, demand is keeping up with condo construction. Despite heated neighbourhood battles over new condo proposals, the number of buildings under construction is actually going down â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good thing for the market, Kargbo said.

Recently, 2010 was a bumper year for condo construction, with 1,397 units completed. That declined slightly to 1,324 in 2011, and with 948 units completed as of September this year, the numbers are on track for the downward trend to continue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The growth rate is not going to be as brisk as weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen in the last few years,â&#x20AC;? Kargbo said, particularly when it comes to prices. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overwhelmingly the 25 to 34 age group thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s driving the demand for condos, he said, because condos or townhomes are the only type of housing many of them can afford as first-time homebuyers. Newcomers to Ottawa usually number around 6,000 a year, and they also drive demand, said Sandra PĂŠrez Torres, another senior market analyst. Migration to the city is expected to peak in 2013, with around 9,000 people expected to move here, she said. Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy will remain relatively strong, despite layoffs in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest employment sector: the federal public service. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, uncertainty

will keep some potential homebuyers on the sidelines in 2013,â&#x20AC;? PĂŠrez Torres said. In the past couple of years, condo sales comprised 22 per cent of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s real estate market. That will go up slightly to the 2010 level of 24 per cent next year, Kargbo predicted.

their first home has driven up prices. Kanata, Stittsville and OrlĂŠans will also have a slower recovery, as inflated prices stifle demand there. Construction of multi-unit housing such as rowhouses and condos will see a boost in Nepean and Gloucester, Kargbo predicted. The rental market will

continue to remain tight as investors express little interest in building or buying rental buildings and units. Prices and demand have been high since 2008 and with only 400 new rental units completed in the past year, rents will remain high, PĂŠrez Torres said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That brought a bit of fresh

air to the market, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still quite tight,â&#x20AC;? she said. As the population continues to age, housing for seniors will be another growing real estate market, PĂŠrez Torres said. That type of housing already grew by 80 per cent in Ottawa in the past two years and is set to continue that trend.

EXPENSIVE

Still, many new condo units are expensive, so firsttime homebuyers have been looking towards condo resales when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re buying their first property. That demand for lower-priced condos will drive a shift towards fewer high-end buildings and more reasonably priced units, especially downtown and in the west and southeast ends of the city, Kargbo said. Townhomes are becoming increasingly popular in the east as younger people looking to buy property search for something in their price range. They likely wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find it in Barrhaven, Kargbo said, because the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s popularity with families seeking

Optimists roll out a fun, full schedule of carnival events Sherry Haaima sherry.haaima@metroland.com

EMC events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a community event thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a mainstay for more than 30 years. Organizers are gearing up for the 32nd annual Arnprior Optimist Club Winter Carnival and with many of the favourite activities on offer and several new events being planned, including a Friday evening family toboggan party, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shaping up to be another great one. From the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activities and free swimming and skating to the AC/DC cover band and wine tasting, there are plenty of events being planned to help people young and old beat the winter doldrums. The club could not offer the carnival each year without the support of the community and generous donations from local businesses, said club vice-president Chris Toner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Arnprior Optimist Club is grateful for all of our local sponsors. Their support is so greatly appreciated,â&#x20AC;? said Toner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are so blessed to live in a strong local community that happily supports each othersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; endeavours. The Optimist Club prides itself as a service club that fundraises in Arnprior â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for Arnprior. Supporting our local businesses is very important to us, everyone should shop local.â&#x20AC;?

Toner made note that local schools can pick up some fundraising dollars and gain bragging rights by getting involved in the area schools snow/ice sculpture contest. Judging is scheduled for Friday, Jan. 18 and cash prizes are available. Another unique addition to this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s schedule of events is a program run by the Arnprior Masons on Saturday, Jan. 19, at the Masonic Hall at 31 James St from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Masonic Chip child identification program consists of five major components â&#x20AC;&#x201C; vital child information, digital fingerprints, digital photographs, video and a dental bite impression or intra oral swab for DNA. All of this data is burned onto a CD, and given to the parents or guardian â&#x20AC;&#x201C; nothing is kept on file. The Optimists and Masons hope parents will take advantage of the opportunity, said Toner. MOVIE SATURDAY

The first in a host of activities included in the carnival takes place this Saturday, Jan. 12 at 10 a.m. at the Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien Theatre when families can enjoy the movie Hotel Transylvania with admission of just a carnival button ($2, available at the theatre).

Then, on Friday night, families are encouraged to grab their toboggans, sleds and crazy carpets and head to Haveyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hill (also known as Tank Hill) between the ends of James and Havey streets from 7-9 p.m. for the family tobogganing party. Come out and enjoy the great winter weather tobogganing with family and friends, say organizers. The fun includes a warm fire, free hot chocolate and lots of fun. Organizers remind parents that younger children should be supervised at the event. The town will be blocking off the street at the bottom of the hill to ensure everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safety. Also on Friday is the start of the Jack Smith Memorial Hockey Tournament, an event expected to draw 16 teams or more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jack Smith was a very active member in our club,â&#x20AC;? said Toner. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also free public swimming at the pool from 7-9 p.m. Friday is also time for rocking out in the community hall with the pub night running from 5:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. Great Scott, Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ultimate AC/DC tribute band, is part of the fun beginning around 9 p.m., as well as the very popular baked goods and food auction. Admission to the show is a carnival button and a donation to the carnival.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would be really nice to have people make donations at the door,â&#x20AC;? said Toner, who noted the band may cost a bit more than others, but the high energy show is well worth it.

The event follows on the heels of the first of its kind held last year, which was also hosted by the GrapeScot. In 2011, impromptu music and dancing broke out, so this year itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the schedule. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was such a great success we decided to do it again this year,â&#x20AC;? said Toner. Those in attendance can also expect to learn more about selecting great value wines, storing, serving, matching wine with food and much more.

Rack of lamb with Mediterranean Unchecked eating disorders tapenade makes an elegant meal in boys and men can kill

EMC lifestyle - Lamb is fresh, lean, tender, mild and easy to cook! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an excellent source of protein, iron and B vitamins. Because lamb isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t marbled like beef, health-conscious cooks can easily trim off the fat. This is a fabulous idea for fancy dinner or a quick yet elegant meal. Ask your butcher to remove extra fat and chine the bones (meaning to sever the backbone). Serve with roasted root vegetables. P r e p a r a t i o n time: 15 Minutes Cooking time: 16 to 18 Minutes Baking time: 30 to 35 Minutes Servings: Four

INGREDIENTS:

tard

â&#x20AC;˘ One tbsp (15 mL) ďŹ nely chopped fresh rosemary or one tsp (5 mL) dried â&#x20AC;˘ One clove garlic, minced â&#x20AC;˘ Two racks Ontario Lamb (six to eight ribs each), trimmed Tapenade: â&#x20AC;˘ One (15 mL) olive oil â&#x20AC;˘ One1 clove garlic, minced â&#x20AC;˘ 1/2 cup (125 mL) chopped Ontario Greenhouse Tomatoes â&#x20AC;˘ 1/4 cup (50 mL) chopped Ontario Roasted Red Peppers â&#x20AC;˘ 1/4 cup (50 m L) chopped olives â&#x20AC;˘ Two tbsp (25 mL) chopped capers Preparation:

In small saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat; sautĂŠ garlic, tomatoes and red peppers until softened, about ďŹ ve minutes. Add olives and capers; cook for three minutes to blend ďŹ&#x201A;avours. (Tapenade can be refrigerated in airtight container for up to three days; rewarm to serve.) In large bowl, combine oil, mustard, rosemary and garlic; rub over meaty parts of lamb. Reserve any remaining oil mixture. In large heavy-bottomed skillet, brown each lamb rack on all sides over high heat, about one minute each side. Place in shallow roasting pan; top with any remaining oil mixture. Cover exposed bones with foil to prevent burning. - courtesy Foodland Ontario

EMC news - Boys and men fall pretty far down on the list of potential candidates for an eating disorder. Merryl Bear, director of NEDIC, the National Eating Disorder Information Centre, conďŹ rms that regardless of race, ethnicity or nationality, research consistently shows that women are more vulnerable than men to disordered eating behaviours or the full syndrome. However, she says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no reason to be complacent, or to ignore the needs of males, because eating disorders can kill.â&#x20AC;? Additionally, said Bear, the likelihood of complete recovery is highest when the person receives early, expert treatment at the right level of intensity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We all â&#x20AC;&#x201C; parents, educators and health professionals â&#x20AC;&#x201C; need to do a better job of understanding and helping boys and men who struggle with food and weight preoccupation. These are hugely debilitating conditions which affect school, work and relationships.â&#x20AC;?

The tongue-in-cheek slogan, Men with Eating Disorders: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the name of a band is used by NEDIC in their public awareness campaign. Its mission is to raise the likelihood that men will recognize their malaise as an eating disorder and get help. The campaign also encourages the partner or parents of a male loved one to call for information and support if denial is a factor. Neither those close to the person, nor doctors, tend to think of an eating disorder as an explanation for a maleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ills. Males may also be reluctant to say that they might have something seen as a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s problem. The harmful effects of binge-eating, purging and restricting are potentially deadly, especially when combined with rigorous exercise and substance abuse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was a pudgy kid who got teased,â&#x20AC;? said Dave, who prefers not to be identiďŹ ed. Unhappy and unable to ask for help without â&#x20AC;&#x153;feeling like a loser,â&#x20AC;? Dave said he decided to take control of his

body through exercise and dieting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought that being lean and buff would solve my problems,â&#x20AC;? he said. Instead, it led to increasingly arduous exercise and eating rituals which dominated his life. Unable to sustain this regimen, Dave collapsed and was later admitted to an eating disorder program. Experts report that while anorexia and bulimia are signiďŹ cant problems, a higher percentage of men with eating disorders tend suffer from binge eating disorder. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is an increasing awareness and support for males with eating disorders,â&#x20AC;? said Lisa Naylor of the Manitoba Provincial Eating Disorder Prevention and Recovery Program. For individuals looking for understanding and support, she adds, â&#x20AC;&#x153;NEDICâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national helpline is a good place to start.â&#x20AC;?

Helping cut the wood was the neighbourly thing to do EMC lifestyle - That day, my sister Audrey was taken out of school. And of course, because I, so much younger, refused to go to school without her, was allowed to stay home too. Audrey was needed in the kitchen. It was the day Mr. Briscoe would arrive with his circular saw mounted on a flat-bottom sleigh for a day of cutting wood. The gang of neighbours who would arrive early in the morning, in cutters or sleighs, would have to be fed their dinner ... sometimes 15 or 20 men with big appetites and Mother needed all the help she could get. It would have taken many weeks for Father to bring the cut trees out of the bush and stack them in the barn yard. The neighbours would start

to arrive early and get right to the job at hand. It was one of my most favourite days. I would plant myself in the kitchen window on a chair, making sure I had cleared a spot of frost from the middle pane, so that I could watch the men at work. It took several men to feed the logs into the circular saw, another few to catch the flying wood, and still another few to throw them onto our waiting sleigh or stone boat, whichever was handy. The cut pieces were hauled to the back door of the shed, and tossed in a heap. It would be my brother’s chore, over several Saturdays, to stack the cut wood into neat and high rows in the shed. The wood was then close at hand to the kitchen

Mary Cook’s Memories BY MARY COOK

wood box, which I had to keep filled for the Findlay Oval cook stove. A job which I hated with a passion. No one had to be told when it was time to come for the noon meal. And it was Mother’s job to make sure it was ample, piping hot, and a meal the farmers were used to getting at noon hour. That meant plain, home cooked and plenty of it. The bake table would be full of pies, mostly raisin or apple. Mother would have been up late the night before

baking them to free the oven for the dinner the next day. Early in the morning, into the Findlay Oval would go a roast of pork or beef that was full of the largest roast pan we owned. Sitting in big aluminium pots would be enough potatoes to feed half of Renfrew County, and pots of turnips and carrots would be cooked and ready for mashing just before the men came in for their meal. Of course, white porcelain pots would be simmering

with green tea on the back of the stove. It was my job to set the kitchen table, and another small table that usually held baking pans and extra cutlery. The red-checked oilcloth had to be wiped and dried, and the big white cups and saucers, the ones we got free in bags of puffed wheat, set beside each plate. While the men filed into the kitchen, my sister Audrey would already be filling bowls with potatoes and vegetables, and big platters of sliced meat would be put at the ends of the tables. By the time the last man had washed up in one of the two basins of hot soapy water on the bench at the back door, the water was black. There wasn’t much thought given to germs back then.

Rich brown gravy was poured from milk jugs. And it didn’t take long for the men to wipe their plates clean with slices of homemade bread. The pies were cut in four, and without benefit of clean plates, the men slid a whopping piece onto their dinner plates and it wasn’t unusual for second helpings all around. Most of the day would be spent by the time the last log was fed into the circular saw, and it was time for the men to head back to their own farms for the evening chores. Wood-sawing day continued up and down the Northcote Side Road until every farm had been tended to. It was the neighbourly thing to do back in those Depression years.

Screening is a big too-do in prevention of colorectal cancer EMC news - Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in Canada. Last year alone, 9,000 Canadians died from the disease and an estimated 23,000 will be diagnosed this year. More tragic, perhaps, is that colorectal or colon cancer is preventable. Because many people do not experience any symptoms in the early stages, appropriate screening is critical. “Colorectal cancer is a completely preventable disease if we screen

for it,” said gastroenterologist, Dr. Mario Castelli. “And it gets more common as we get older, so that’s why the recommendation is, usually starting at the age of 50, that everyone should be screened.” While there are a variety of screening tests available, preparing for them can be inconvenient since fasting, diet restrictions or the collection of stool samples is required. Now, however, a new and simple blood test, known as Cologic, offers access to a quicker and simpler screening process.

“This is a much simpler test,” Dr. Castelli said. “You just go to the laboratory without any preparation, have a blood sample drawn and the results go to your physician within a few days.” Experts suggest that preventative screening and early detection can save lives; therefore, it is recommended that adults speak with their family physician about the right time to get screened for colorectal cancer.

Live trees a treat for farm animals Christmas conifers provide nutrients, act as dewormer for goats, elk Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@hotmail.com

SUBMITTED

The goats at the Constance Creek Wildlife Refuge enjoy snacking on donated Christmas trees last year. The farm animals will strip a tree bare of needles and bark in less than a day. The sanctuary is collecting live conifer trees. large donation of around 70 unsold trees by Holy Redeemer Church for its 80 free-range elk. “We’d still love for people to drop them off,” said van Eeghen. “We’ll find some-

where to put them.” Last year, the ranch had close to 100 trees donated for the animals. “It pretty much ran us right through the winter,” said van Eeghen.

It’s important trees aren’t dried out so they retain their nutritional value, said van Eeghen, adding the elk won’t eat chemically-treated trees. “The elk can sense that or taste it and those trees don’t get consumed,” he said. All tinsel must be removed since the elk and goats can’t

digest the decorations and it can be harmful to their systems. People can drop their live trees off at the Constance Creek Wildlife Refuge at 2494 Dunrobin Rd. beside the driveway, or at the Elk Ranch, located at 1271 Old Carp Rd., in front of the

barn. Both van Eeghen and Rowe said people are invited to visit the animals when they drop off live trees. To arrange for a tour of the wildlife refuge, send an email to info@ ccwr.ca. For a list of operating hours for the Elk Ranch, visit elkranch.com.

EMC news - Not sure what to do with that Christmas tree still hanging around the living room? Why not turn it into a snack for farm animals. The Constance Creek Wildlife Refuge and the Elk Ranch are both accepting donations of live conifer trees such as spruce, pine or fir as forage for elk and goats. “It’s a bit like keeping the scurvy off,” said Thom van Eeghen, who owns the Elk Ranch with his wife Fay Armitage. “There’s a high vitamin C level in conifers.” Donating live trees could be an even greener alternative to throwing them in the green bin once the holiday season is over. “The trees provide a welcome change of diet for the goats, who mostly eat hay,” said Lynne Rowe, founder of the wildlife sanctuary in Dunrobin. “They also … act as a natural dewormer.” The Constance Creek Wildlife Refuge has 23 goats on site that love snacking on donated trees. “They will strip a tree bare (of) needles and bark in less than a day,” said Rowe. “The tree skeletons will be used for a bonfire, hopefully to accompany a CCWR volunteer and supporter skating party later this winter if we can clear off part of the creek.” In recent days. the Elk Ranch in Carp was given a

Annual Pakenham Frost Festival will keep spirits warm Tara Gesner tgesner@perfprint.ca

EMC events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to get your frost on! Winter is the season Canadians know best, so why not let your hair down in the company and warmth of family, friends and neighbours at the Pakenham Frost Festival Jan. 22-27. The festival, sponsored by the Pakenham and District Civitan Club, offers a full week of frosty activities for the young, and the young at heart.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an opportunity to have fun, meet up with friends and neighbours and support your local Civitan and businesses,â&#x20AC;? said Brenda Hurrle, president of the Civitan club. Joining Hurrle on the festival committee are Barb Brennan, Lesley Lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Arrivee, Doris Rankin, Shelley Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor and Mike Ryan. Year after year, hundreds of visitors from all over the Ottawa Valley take part in the eventâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s numerous activities. All net proceeds raised by way of the Pakenham Frost Festival go back into the com-

munity. The winter-themed fun gets underway on Tuesday, Jan. 22. Come out and enjoy Mount Pakenhamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;2 for 1â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Ski Night. For more information, call the ski hill at 613624-5290. Eyes down for Bingo Night Wednesday, Jan. 23. The popular game takes place inside the Pakenham Public School gymnasium. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) rules apply. Twenty-four hours later (Thursday, Jan. 24), revisit

the Pakenham Public School gymnasium for Toonie Movie Night. The $2 fee includes popcorn and a drink. The Frost Festival blasts into full speed on Friday, Jan. 25 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; opening night â&#x20AC;&#x201C; beginning with a public skate at 6:30 p.m. at the Stewart Community Centre. There will be a childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s costume contest, crowning of Little Miss and Mr. Pakenham, races, prizes and more. Just prior to the nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Junior B hockey matchup between the Almonte Thunder and Arnprior Packers, held

in Pakenham for the carnival, a ceremonial face-off takes place on centre ice at 8 p.m. Dropping the puck is longtime Pakenham resident Gervais Ryan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lindsay Frechette is singing O Canada,â&#x20AC;? noted Hurrle. Tickets for the game are available at the arena: adults, $8; seniors and students, $5; and children, $2. A great way to end the day is Blues Night with local band Pat Watters and Mixed Nuts. The entertainment begins at 9 p.m. in the community centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upstairs hall. Tickets cost

$10 per person and are available at Nicholsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sundries. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The event was added in an effort to reach more members of our community,â&#x20AC;? explained Hurrle. On Saturday, Jan. 26, pancakes start being served at 7 a.m. in the community centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upper hall. The cost of breakfast, which runs until 11 a.m., is $8 for adults and $4 for children. Come early for a seat and enjoy local entertainers. See FROST, Page 47

Extra Money! Area family gives back to Earn Keep Your Weekends Free! Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s during walk EMC news - Faye Larwill (nee McGee) was the matriarch of the Larwill family. Every year until 2012 she walked with her family at the Alzheimer Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual fund raiser, the Walk for Memories â&#x20AC;&#x201C; until she was unable to do it anymore. Fayeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter Trish was raised in Kanata, and now lives in Kinburn. She and her extended family proudly participate under the team name â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fayeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Familyâ&#x20AC;?. The team involved three generations of the family. Donations support the programs of the Alzheimer Society of Ottawa and Renfrew County. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have been really helped by the services offered by the Alzheimer Society, including support groups for family members, and access to a day program,â&#x20AC;? said Trish. The family intends to keep investing in the services offered by the Society - both as a payback for help received, and as an investment against potential future need. Understandably, Trish and her sister, as well as Fayeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own siblings, are on the watch for signs of Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease amongst themselves. Luckily, the McGee/Larwill clan is a close-knit bunch who still observes the old custom of Sunday dinners together. Trish knows they will always be there for one another should the need arise, just like they pulled together to help her Mom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But caregiving is tough to go alone,â&#x20AC;? she points out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comforting to

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fayeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Familyâ&#x20AC;? includes Faye Larwillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter Trisha, from Kinburn, and others who are carrying on her dedication to the annual Alzheimer fundraiser. The Walk for Memories takes places indoors at the Carleton University Fieldhouse on Sunday, Jan. 27. It begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 12.30 p.m know that the Alzheimer Society will be there should we need them again. And if we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need them, then it feels good to help other people by doing this fundraising at the Walk for Memories.â&#x20AC;? Trish recalls how, as they were preparing to participate in the Walk for Memories in 2009, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mom went missing for the first time. She left the house, on that frigid January morning, wearing only a light spring coat and her running shoes, and wandered the neighbourhood.â&#x20AC;? A Good Samaritan called 911 when they spotted her in the parking lot of a local shopping mall, cold and very confused. Paramedics took her in to warm up, while police

found Dad, who was out driving the local streets looking for her. Dad got her dressed and brought her to the Walk for Memories. It was a sobering reminder of the dangers of this disease. The Walk for Memories takes places indoors at the Carleton University Fieldhouse on Sunday, Jan. 27. It begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 12.30 p.m. If you would like to support people who are dealing with Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease by participating in the Walk for Memories, please go to Alzheimer. ca/ottawa or call Natalie deRuiter at 613-523-4004 x145. Or you can support by donating to the Fayeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Family team at walkformermories.ca.
