Historic Cheshire Cat lost to fire Much-adored pub, former schoolhouse burned to ground
Derek Dunn email@example.com
EMC news – One of West Carleton’s most cherished buildings and businesses was lost to fire Monday morning, Jan. 28. The Cheshire Cat pub, a former one-room stone schoolhouse built in 1883, was on fire at 4:30 a.m. Alarms were sounding and smoke billowing from the roof at the time. Ottawa Fire Services arrived at the site – the corner of Carp

and Richardson Side roads soon after and assumed a “defensive attack” of the building frequented by many locals, former teachers, and a number of Ottawa Senators players. Tankers were on site since municipal water isn’t available in the rural west area. It is unclear if that hampered the battle, which engulfed the entire building causing $700,000 in damages. It will be razed. See CAT, Page 2

EMC news – Wendy Cox and Matt Munro are tasked with overseeing one of the most highly anticipated Carp Fairs in the last 150 years. The two were elected co-presidents, homecraft and agriculture departments respectively, at the annual general meeting held on Jan. 23. They will oversee additional events and activities in the works for the 150th anniversary, including the soonto-be released fair history book and documentary complete with interviews of folks with wonderful memories of the Best Little Fair in Canada. Cox was a touch overwhelmed when she spoke as co-president for the first time, but revealed that this year’s theme for the September fair is Memories old and new. “I know everyone here has some old memories,” she told the crowd of about 80 at the Carp agricultural hall. “I’m confident some new ones will be developed.” She added that her kids rank the fair up there with birthdays and Christmas, like many kids in the village and surrounding areas. Munro thanked outgoing co-presidents Paul Caldwell and Heather Johnston, along with general manager Joyce Trafford, for a successful 149th and setting the stage for this year’s. He also welcomed new board members Faye Potter and Jonathan Daley. See ORIGINAL, Page 6

Cat owner intends to rebuild cherished pub Continued from front
PHOTOS BY DEREK DUNN/METROLAND
Firefighters work to dislodge the schoolhouse bell tower from the historic Cheshire Cat pub during the fire on Monday morning.
Braeside Clear Out Event! Home Furnishings
By 10 a.m. ﬁreﬁghters in a cherry-picker were pushing over the bell tower, forcing a groan from owner Dustin Therrien on the road below. He and wife Crystal, who live nearby, bought the heritage-designated Cat in 2005. They had done some renovations and ﬁnished a major addition last year. It was considered one of Ottawa’s most authentic traditional British pubs. Therrien declined comment at the time, but told friends later on Facebook he intends to rebuild. He was surrounded by a few friends and employees. Crystal, who runs the couple’s new Alice’s Restaurant in the village of Carp, mostly sat in the backseat of an SUV on Richardson Side Road with others lending support. About 36 people worked at the Cat, many from the area. There were no injuries in the ﬁre. Fifty ﬁre trucks and 20 ﬁreﬁghters attended the scene, bring the ﬁre under control by 12:45
p.m. that day. They managed to enter the building to retrieve important items for the owner. The cause has yet to be determined, but restaurants often have pilot burners on all night and the Cat also had a woodstove in the main ﬂoor dining room. The cause could also have been electrical related. Two other nearby buildings on Richardson Side Road have been lost to ﬁre over the last couple of years. An indoor soccer complex and a banquet hall have burned down. The Carp Agricultural Hall ofﬁce on Carp Road was badly burned one year ago to the day. However, ﬁre spokesman Marc Messier said the soccer complex ﬁre was accidental; the banquet hall was “undetermined” because of extensive damage; and the fair’s was due to a malfunctioning ﬂue pipe. As for commentors on website pages speculating about an arsonist in the area, Messier dismissing the possibility. “They are not informed,” he said. Police are not investigating any of the ﬁres.

Landowner puts beach up for sale in Constance Bay tions on that as well.â€? Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority general manager Paul Lehamn confirmed, â€œThere are provincial regulations governed by municipalities regarding ANSI lands. Weâ€™d have to look into the policies in the municipality. â€œThere is a large area of floodplain in Constance Bay. In floodplain, there is potential for restrictions to any form of development,â€? said Lehman. â€œIf someone wanted to do anything in the regulatory floodplain, they would need to apply to the authority for a permit. In most cases, a large floodplain is not developable just because it is in the floodplain. As a general rule, that is the way it is in Constance Bay.â€? However, he added that, â€œThe authority tries to recognize existing development as opposed to new development.â€? Local realtor Glen Maheral, a long-time resident of the Bay, said, â€œThe property has been for sale for over a year, but until then I didnâ€™t even know the land behind houses on Bayview wasnâ€™t Torbolton Forest. There is no deed to that strip of land that I am aware of. I donâ€™t know if the last purchase was even a valid sale.
Real estate agent says more than one kilometre of beach up for sale David Johnston
EMC news - A billboardtype sign erected on the beach this week in front of 774 Bayview Dr. in Constance Bay has sparked considerable discussion in the community. The Royal LePage listing offers â€œapproximately 1.3 km (9.3 acres) of beach fronting along the Ottawa Riverâ€? as well as â€œ56 acres adjacent to the Torbolton Forestâ€? and a â€œ1.1 acre property on Doris Currie Road.â€? Listing Agent Beth Bonvie told the West Carleton Review-EMC that, â€œneither I nor my clients were involved in the purchase of the properties that abut the waterfrontâ€? and therefore she was unable to comment on the property other than to confirm it is for sale. â€œThere could be an opportunity for the owners who front onto the beachfront to form an association to purchase the beach where they all become equal owners in the beachfront and hold a fund
Anne Armitage, a riverfront property owner on Bayview Drive in Constance Bay, views the real estate sign erected last week on the beach oďŹ€ering for sale land she believed she owned when she bought her home. that helps maintain the area,â€? she said. â€œOr if the city would permit the waterfront property to be severed to align with the existing lots, the seller may be willing to consider selling the parcels to each of the property owners that front on
the beachfront so long as each one was purchased.â€? Ottawa Ward 5 Coun. Eli El-Chantiry owns property on Bayview Drive that fronts the beach in the area listed for sale. He stressed that his comments were of a personal
nature and that he would express a conflict of interest in any dealings with the land and the City of Ottawa. However, as a resident, he said, â€œIt was property of the late Peter Smith and it is his
estate that is now trying to sell. It may be unlikely to sell as the forest is protected as an Area of Natural and Scientific Interest (ANSI) and all of it is well below floodplain, and there are development restric-

National awards program recognizes clinic for IT efforts Derek Dunn firstname.lastname@example.org
EMC news â€“ The clinic in Carp is on the cutting edge of information technology, and was recently recognized with a national award for its efforts. The West Carleton Family Health Team was presented Jan. 18 with a health care innovation award, the Momentum Award, as part of Canada Health Infowayâ€™s ImagineNation Outcomes Challenge. The awards have helped fuel the use of health IT innovation in local communities and across Canada. â€œWest Carleton is on the leading edge in terms of getting patients involved in their own care,â€? said Richard C. Alvarez, president and CEO of Canada Health Infoway. â€œThese are self-management tools.â€? Carleton-Mississippi Mills MP Gordon Oâ€™Connor, chief government whip and Minister of State, presented the West Carleton Family Health Team with the award in recognition of their efforts to increase the number of patients using their innovative online patient health portal, where any of their 16,500 patients can securely view information that is stored in their electronic medical record, such as lab results and immunization information. â€œIt really cuts out waste,â€? said Oâ€™Connor, who described a personal anecdote of care he received in Perth then had to undergo many of the same tests soon after in Ottawa. While Ontario isnâ€™t at the point of cutting out redundancies in testing at multiple providers â€“ liability remains an issue â€“ Oâ€™Connor in nonetheless impressed with the clinicâ€™s IT offerings. So is Dr. Mark Fraser, one of 12 physicians at the clinic serving about 18,000 patients. He said patients are better informed and able to help doctors economize their time. â€œOur patients are very careful of asking informed questions,â€? he said, thanks to the new interactive website found at wcfht.ca. â€œThe questions are getting better.â€? Clinic operations director Dave Sellers said the website allows patients to input their latest blood pressure and cholesterol readings, along with more than a dozen similar measurement tools. The patterns developed help immensely. â€œThey can track their progress and make adjustments as needed,â€? Sellers said. The clinicâ€™s catchment area includes Kanata, Stittsville, and Carleton Place.

Original Carp Fair presidents pay surprise visit Continued from front
â€œChange is inevitable, but itâ€™s how we manage change that matters,â€? Munro said. There were six other votes at the meeting. Elected first and second vice presidents on the homecraft side are, respectively, Laurie Hill and Jolene Dickson. Elected first and second vice presidents on the agriculture side are, respectively, Bruce Hill and Dale Deugo. The boards of both sides were elected as a block. Before the elections was a bit of comic relief. Out to wish the co-presidents good luck during the 150th year was the first president, Richard Kidd, and the first female president, Martha Hodgins. The two were decked out in traditional garb, and were played by Wib Paul and Bev Cowan. Although Kidd was president in 1863, Hodgins didnâ€™t get to represent the womenâ€™s side until it was allowed in 1915. The fact was not lost on the man playing Kidd, who at one point grew a little confused at how the meeting should proceed. Thatâ€™s when he turned to Trafford for guidance. â€œItâ€™s unfortunate we didnâ€™t have women involved in the fair in my time,â€? Paul said, to the laughter of all in the room.
project for the year was to get the administration up and running smoothly again. Johnston was proud to say they recovered and the fair went on. â€œThere were a few bumps along the way,â€? Caldwell said, reminding folks that the drought wreaked havoc on cattle and livestock in the region, but that competition in the various categories remained strong. He also noted that instead of the Twoonies for Troops fundraiser, money last year went to a food aid program administered by food banks. The food banks by local beef for the less fortunate, making it a win-win-win for all involved. Revenue was down from 2011, thanks in large part to one day of rain and the Cheap Trick concert that didnâ€™t sell as well as expected. However, despite the square-footage of rental space dipping, two more vendors were added. And sales were up. The two 10-horse hitch in the centre ring was an impressive logistical feat; savings can possibly be found in security; parking on Carp Road, a first for the fair, went smoothly; and participation by 4H was excellent.

Laurie Hill, left, and Wendy Cox are first vice president and president of the homecraft department. Joyce Trafford is general manager. Matt Munro and Bruce Hill are president and first vice president of the agriculture department.
BOARD QUESTIONED PAST PRESIDENTS
A steady stream of heads from various departments came up to report on the 2012 fair, most with good news to share. Johnston and Caldwell also said farewell to their position at the top of the board. Neither left out the challenges they faced. â€œThe 149th year can be called anything but typical,â€? Johnston said. â€œUsually presidents get a few months to ease into the role. But within three days we faced the biggest challenge in the fairâ€™s modern history.â€? That was the Jan. 28 fire at the fair offices. It was made clear immediately that their
At the end of the meeting, those on hand were invited to ask questions. Charlene Johnston, who was supposed to be president this year but was removed from the board, asked about past the minutes of a past meeting. She repeated used the term â€œfabricationsâ€? to describe aspects of the minutes. Caldwell said a vote was taken and the board decided that the minutes faithfully recorded what transpired. â€œThe way it was written is the way it happened,â€? Caldwell said. â€œHand on heart, Paul?â€? Johnston said. â€œHand on heart.â€?

Wynne prevails over Pupatello to become new premier EMC news - Delegates had to pay $499 to register for last Saturday’s Ontario Liberal Party leadership convention, but Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke delegates say they got their money’s worth. Eleven of the riding’s 16 delegates supported Don Valley West MPP Kathleen Wynne, who visited the riding Jan. 12 in Cobden, where she met delegates, other Liberal Party supporters and teachers. Sandra Pupatello of Windsor led by two votes on the ﬁrst ballot of Saturday’s convention at Toronto’s former Maple Leaf Gardens, but that wasn’t exactly what the former MPP needed to fortify her position in the four-male, two-female race. When former RenfrewNipissing-Pembroke Liberal MPP Sean Conway saw the ﬁrst vote count, he knew Pupatello, whom he was supporting, was in trouble. Pupatello still led on the second ballot, 817-750, but with most other candidates’ supporters moving to the camp of contender Kathleen Wynne, it was soon game over. The sixth leadership convention for Conway in 40 years turned out to be one of the most exciting, but with some disappointment. “When I saw that result (after the ﬁrst ballot), to me it was over,” said Conway. “I thought she needed to be 75 to 100 ahead if she was going to go on to win,” he said. And he was right. Candidate Harinder Takhar joined Pupatello’s camp, but it wasn’t enough. Wynne, who garnered most of the votes from the camps of candidates Charles Sousa,
Gerard Kennedy and Eric Hoskins, prevailed 1,150-866 on the third ballot, setting the stage for the swearing in of the 59-year-old as premier. While she’ll also be Ontario’s ﬁrst-ever female premier, there are already ﬁve other female provincial premiers now serving in Canada. In retrospect, Conway says Pupatello’s campaign was hurt because she didn’t hold a seat at Queen’s Park and perhaps because she’d been too adversarial with NDP leader Andrea Horvath, the most popular of the three party leaders in recent public opinion polls. Pupatello, who was elected to ofﬁce in four consecutive terms, didn’t run in 2011 when she chose to work in the private sector. Wynne received substantial support from rural delegates and has indicated she will be her own agriculture minister. For Renfrew-NipissingPembroke delegates, it was an exciting weekend. Meredith Caplan Jamieson, whose brother David and mother Elinor were both elected members of provincial and/or federal parliament, called this her most exciting of three provincial conventions, following the 1992 Lyn McLeod and 1996 Dalton McGuinty conventions. “This was my favourite convention ever, by far,” said Jamieson, who has also voted in federal Liberal conventions. “It was just so exciting on so many levels.” The choice will also bode well for Liberals, she predicted. “I think we were smart to vote for someone who’s a strong, compassionate, fun leader,” said Jamieson, noting that voters also took less stock in Wynne’s status as a lesbian

Kathleen Wynne enjoys centre stage after winning the Ontario Liberal Party leadership convention in Toronto. Next to her is former MPP Sandra Pupatello, who led after the first ballot but lost to Wynne on the third ballot. than the media did. “That’s the amazing thing about Kathleen. She always exceeds expectations,” she added, alluding to how she trounced then-Conservative Party leader John Tory in the 2007 election in Don Valley West. Derek Nighbor of Pembroke, who lost by a few hundred seats to Conservative John Yakabuski in 2003, wasn’t sure if the Liberal Party was ready to elect a lesbian leader. In fact, the Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke delegate was thinking Wynne was headed to a second-place ﬁnish before the weekend began. Hoarse and exhausted afterwards, Nighbor said, “I knew she was the best person for the job, but I wasn’t sure if the Liberal Party was bold enough to make that decision.” In the end, Nighbor says two factors ruled the day. One, Wynne had the best-organized campaign. Two, she was a superb candidate. Before Premier McGuinty prorogued Parliament last fall, Nighbor says Queen’s Park was in shambles, with shout-

ing, yelling and a lack of desire to make the legislature work. Even with Wynne’s victory, former MPP Conway says the Liberals have their work cut out for them, partly because of their recent decision to impose teacher contracts through Bill 115. After teachers protested in large numbers in front of Saturday’s convention at the former
Maple Leaf Gardens, Liberal supporters say something needs to be done to address their concerns. And Wynne may be just the person to handle the job, says Conway. “She has a lot of experience in government. She knows how government works. She knows how to bring consensus. And she has a really high energy level.”

Making the winter a little warmer for all
interâ€™s chill always comes with some warm ideas. There are people in every community across the city who see winter as the right time to plan their biggest events. What better way to break up a season that begs you to stay indoors and hibernate? After a week or more of punishing cold, people start to get a touch of cabin fever if they donâ€™t spend any time
outdoors. We lose out on opportunities to get some physical activity and we risk losing out on social connections. Cold drives us indoors, making our shopping malls, community centres, rinks and libraries good places to spend time. All are good places to make new friends. While Winterlude does a great job of giving us all something to look forward to, itâ€™s the local, grassroots efforts of volunteers that can reunite Ottawans with the
great outdoors. Doing all that work at -30 C is tough sledding, so to speak, but wonâ€™t stop everyone. Itâ€™s not easy to run events in January or February in this country, but our hardiest volunteers can be counted on year after year to snub Jack Frost and head outdoors. If you dress properly, keep track of the kids and watch out for frostbite, some of this cityâ€™s coldest days are still enjoyable. Be it organizing a winter
carnival in a park or flooding outdoor rinks, itâ€™s volunteers that get the job done. We owe them plenty of thanks and a very, very large cup of hot chocolate. Every year, communities across the country gather at their local rinks to celebrate Hockey Day in Canada. Sure, the weather is often way below zero, and participants can often be seen banging their skates against the ice to keep the blood circulating and warm their chilled feet
â€“ but also visible are the big toothy grins on the faces of children as they wobble across the ice. And it isnâ€™t unusual to see the groups of parents gathered at the boards let out an occasional guffaw as they watch their sons and daughters antics on the ice. It isnâ€™t so much the game. Itâ€™s about family and togetherness (itâ€™s no coincidence that the event is scheduled close to Family Day for Ontarians.)
When the going â€“ or weather in this case â€“ gets tough, it has the strange byproduct of bringing friends, families and communities closer together. Letâ€™s be honest, given a choice most of us would prefer lounging on a Bermuda beach or strolling down an Acapulco avenue rather than endure another day of the Great Canadian Winter. So instead of bemoaning yet another day when the temperatures hover around -40 C (with wind chill), grab your sled, skis, skates or winter gear of choice and enjoy this season of togetherness. â€™Tis the season to be jolly.
Boo to the hockey boobirds CHARLES GORDON Funny Town
tâ€™s nice to have hockey back so that we can appreciate the insights it brings into human behaviour. For example, when the Florida Panthers were in town, Ottawa Senators fans booed whenever the Panthersâ€™ Alex Kovalev touched the puck. This sort of thing goes on a lot in hockey rinks and if you asked Senators fans why they booed they would reply he played for Ottawa a couple of years ago, got a big salary and didnâ€™t seem to try very hard. Another former Senator accused of not always trying hard, Alexei Yashin, used to get similar treatment when he showed up here in a New York Islanders uniform. Thatâ€™s understandable, I suppose, although cheering your team always seems more useful than booing the other one -- and sets a better example for the kids in the crowd. At home youâ€™re teaching them that hating people is wrong; at the rink youâ€™re showing them that there are exceptions. Generally speaking, the booing has at least some faint historical justification: the player did something wrong, like not play well, or sign with another team. Several Toronto players who played a chippier kind of game heard boos in Ottawa. And of course there is the peculiar case of Daniel Alfredsson, who once knocked a Leafs player into the boards in a playoff game and got away without a penalty. Worse, he stole the puck and scored the gamewinning goal. For that, which happened in 2002, Alfredsson is booed to this day by Leafs fans, every time he touches the puck. In a bizarre twist, the booing is quite loud in Ottawa,
because so many Leafs fans attend games here. So you have the most beloved player in Ottawa history being booed in his own arena because of something that happened to Toronto more than 10 years ago. It is difficult to count the number of ways in which this is wrong. But at least it can be explained. How do you explain that fact that Erik Karlsson, Ottawaâ€™s young defence star, was booed every time he touched the puck on opening night in Winnipeg? What did Karlsson ever do to them? Did he once fight a Jets player? Did he say something nasty about Winnipeg in a local paper? That will sometimes do it. Well, no. He didnâ€™t do those things. He was booed for being a great player on the opposing team. Isnâ€™t that crazy? You boo a guy because heâ€™s on the other team and heâ€™s good. Thatâ€™s how it works and itâ€™s certainly not limited to Winnipeg. When Sidney Crosby, then 19 years old, played in Ottawa in the 2007 playoffs, the many fans made a point of booing the Penguins star. Why? Many local commentators asked the question at the time, condemning the booing as classless. The only serious defence came from people such as the anonymous contributor to an online forum who said: â€œWe boo someone to take them off their game.â€? Right. A guy has played hockey all his life at the highest level and is paid millions of dollars for doing so and he is going to be taken off his game because some fans boo. More likely, he wonâ€™t even hear it, such is his level of concentration. Thatâ€™s what Erik Karlsson said after the game in Winnipeg. He didnâ€™t hear it. Two months after becoming a national hero for scoring the game-winning overtime goal for Canada in the 2010 Olympics, Crosby was booed in Ottawa during the playoffs. His team went on to win that series. Of course, they pay for their tickets and itâ€™s a free country and all that. And of course words like â€œsportsmanshipâ€? are rarely heard these days. Still, wouldnâ€™t it be better to save the booing for something truly deserving, like the flu or the commissioner?

The warm colours of winter come out with critters white in winter. One could argue that they are white for reasons of camouďŹ‚age. Natureâ€™s But Arctic Way Fox largely scavenge in winter and nothing dares tackle a Polar Bear so protection cannot be the sole reason for their colouration. Even a few local animals turn white in the winter. Longtailed and Short-tailed weasels change from brown to white in the autumn. Snowshoe Hares do too. While white undoubtedly provides camouďŹ‚age for hares, weasels are predatory animals and likely have less need for camouďŹ‚age. So why then are some animals white if dark is better for absorbing solar energy? The reason is that under certain conditions, white is actually warmer than black. Black is great for absorbing the sunâ€™s energy but it readily conducts body heat too. Ravens and the woodpeckers compensate by ďŹ‚ufďŹ ng up their feathers to reduce the heat loss. An abundance of dense feathers and a luxurious layer of down also help keep them warm. But for most animals exposed to cold temperatures, white is actually warmer. It may not absorb solar energy as well as black but it retains body heat much better, especially under windy conditions.
EMC lifestyle - Last week I discussed how small animals use snow as an insulating blanket by tunnelling underneath it. A few, such as Ruffed Grouse, spend cold nights buried in it. Of course, most animals that are winteractive use other means to stay warm. Surprisingly, one of those is through colour. So what colour is the warmest? Likely many of you are thinking â€œblackâ€? and that is for good reason. Black certainly absorbs solar energy better than do lighter colours. And there certainly are northern animals that are black. Common Ravens, which remain in the very far North where few other animals dare to spend winter, are all black. Blackbacked Woodpeckers, one of the most northern woodpeckers in the world, have solid black backs. It only seems logical that northern animals would bear dark colouration. But white animals can also be found in winter in the far North. Polar Bears, Rock Ptarmigan, Snow Buntings, Snowy Owls, and Arctic Fox â€“ each the most northern representative of its group â€“ are
Snowshoe Hares gain more than camouflage by being white in winter. The reason is that colouration is due to pigments in vacuoles inside feathers and hairs. But white hairs and feathers lack pigmentation, so their vacuoles are empty and contain only air. Just as the air space in a double-paned window prevents house heat from escaping through the glass, air
spaces in hairs and feathers reduce heat loss through those structures. For animals such as Snowshoe Hares, the white pelage undoubtedly offers the additional beneďŹ t of camouďŹ‚age. Thus, just like many other adaptations, white colouration offers a double beneďŹ t to its

Changing the way you think about storage... YOU’VE PROBABLY SEEN THE NEW MEGA DYMON STORAGE FACILITY AT KANATA CENTRUM – IT’S JUST
THE LATEST IN A STRING OF FACILITIES THAT ARE POPPING UP ALL OVER TOWN. LOCALLY OWNED AND OPERATED, DYMON NOW HAS SEVEN INDUSTRY LEADING FACILITIES THROUGHOUT THE CITY.
any people are also taking notice of Dymon’s latest facility under construction on Carling at the Queensway. “We are really excited about our Carling site,” offers Steve Creighton, Senior Vice President with Dymon, “it is going to be our ﬂagship facility with our head ofﬁce located on the top ﬂoor. We have some new outstanding features that are going to make this our best facility yet.” Another Dymon facility is also being built at Greenbank at Hunt Club, with six more facilities planned for Ottawa.
Stepping inside a Dymon facility, you will quickly realize that Dymon Storage is not your traditional type of storage business. “Before the arrival of Dymon, storage in Ottawa was really nothing more than single storey buildings with garage doors. These facilities were typically located in industrial parks or rural locations, that offered minimal security, no climate or humidity controls, and there was very little focus on customer service,” explains Steve Creighton. “We recognized there was a demand for quality storage in Ottawa, but there was virtually nothing available”. Dymon quickly recognized a business opportunity, but wanted to create a unique “made in Ottawa” solution. Before getting started back in 2006, Dymon did extensive research across the U.S. and Canada by visiting dozens of facilities, and quickly determined the attributes of the best performing facilities across North America. Taking these ideas and introducing a few unique offerings of its own, Dymon put together a “best of breed” business model. Arguably, right here in Ottawa Dymon has built the very best that self storage has to offer anywhere in the world.
10 West Carleton Review EMC - Thursday, January 31, 2013
“At the end of the day, your stuff is likely better off stored with Dymon than at your home or business” adds Creighton. From the outside, Dymon’s facilities are architecturally attractive and don’t look anything like storage buildings. “We have moved self storage into the mainstream by locating our facilities in easy to access, highly visible sites, usually adjacent to big box retail” says Creighton, “and with our attractive exterior look we wanted the marketplace to understand that we represented a new and totally different storage solution”.
WHAT DOES “BEST OF BREED” MEAN? Dymon’s facilities have many distinctive features that differentiate them from anything else in the Ottawa marketplace. By integrating leading technologies, Dymon has created the safest and most convenient way to store your excess stuff. Starting with its complete and total humidity and climate controlled environment, Dymon’s facilities ensure no mould, mildew or bugs. Its advanced security features ensure your possessions are safe – besides having extended retail hours, Dymon also has a 24/7 Customer Service Command Center which monitors all of its facilities with personnel who can respond to customer issues at anytime, day or night. Dymon’s unique drive through bays (which are like airport hangars) provide complete protection from the weather and allow you to load and unload your stuff in comfort. Dymon even offers a free truck and driver at the time of move-in for your added convenience, taking away the hassle of renting and driving a large truck. Dymon’s facilities have
luxury boardrooms, mini-ofﬁces, as well as a vault and mailbox service. And in a short period of time, Dymon has become a leading retailer of boxes and moving supplies – you should drop by the facilities just to see their unique box displays! And the list goes on and on. But perhaps Dymon’s biggest asset is its relentless focus on delivering an exceptional customer experience. “Our highly trained staff regularly go above and beyond to help our customers deal with the stress of moving and storage,” says Creighton. “And time and time again we receive compliments on how helpful and professional our staff are.” With everything that Dymon has to offer, is it any wonder that Dymon Storage has taken the Ottawa market by storm? Dymon’s ﬁrst facility on Coventry Road opened in 2006 and ﬁlled in
“and we continue to listen to our customers for new ideas on what they want to see from us”. DymonBox.com is its latest environmentally focused business that offers customers the opportunity to rent or buy eco-friendly storage bins ideally suited for moving and storage. “This is an incredibly convenient service for our customers,” says Jonathon Dicker, Regional Manager at Dymon, “renting the eco-friendly storage bins is cheaper than buying traditional cardboard boxes and includes free delivery and pick-up.”
just 5 months, and has remained full ever since. Because , of high demand in the area, Dymons Coventry location is currently undergoing a 30,000 sq ft expansion Dymon’s Coventry facility was certainly no ﬂashin-the-pan – Dymon’s second location at Prince of Wales and Hunt Club was ﬁlled in only 6 months. Each subsequent facility has also experienced a rapid ﬁll. Dymon’s Kanata Centrum facility, adjacent to Canadian Tire, is the largest self storage facility in Canada. Residential and business customers in Kanata / Stittsville / West Carleton are now enjoying everything Dymon has to offer.
SO WHO IS YOUR TYPICAL DYMON CUSTOMER? The reasons why people need storage are endless. For example, people selling their homes use Dymon. It has been proven that a decluttered, well staged home will sell more quickly and at a higher price. Dymon is also great if you are downsizing or if you simply have too much stuff and need to make room in your home. Many customers also use Dymon to store their possessions while their homes are undergoing renovations, or to clear out their garage in the fall to make room for their cars. Interestingly, the majority of Dymon’s customers are women. According to Creighton, “Women are the primary decision maker when it comes to storage, so we have taken particular care to
design our facilities to be attractive to the female consumer.” Dymon does this through its highly focused customer service, security, convenient access, and ultra clean facilities – all factors many women demand. “Women appreciate the quality that Dymon offers – they know their stuff will be safe and secure.” Dymon’s storage facilities are also very attractive to business operators. With free on-site boardrooms, a parcel acceptance service, and ﬂexible yet affordable storage leasing options, Dymon offers the perfect solution for a variety of businesses. “Currently about 25% of each facility is made up of commercial customers,” reports Creighton. “Dymon is perfect for business to store bankers’ boxes, excess merchandise, spare ofﬁce furniture or work equipment, and seasonal inventory. We even have some business customers who use their storage unit as their own mini-warehouse instead of renting a larger building with much higher ﬁxed overhead.” With the flexixility of month-to-month leases, business speakers see Dymon as great storage solutions. Dymon is also preparing to launch a new convenient document storage, retrieval and shredding business ideally suited for all types of business. “These additional services represent another natural evolution of our business as we continue to serve our business customers better,” concludes Creighton.
Dymon even assists you if you want to sell any of your stuff. DymonMine.com offers its customers the chance to sell things in a totally secure and convenient fashion. Dymon will photograph, describe and upload items to its website where potential buyers can view them or they can drop down to the facility and have a look. And just recently DymonMine.com introduced its new offer/ counter offer system where buyers and sellers can negotiate by e-mail, totally anonymously. The new process is fun, simple, and effective. When items are sold, Dymon issues a cheque to the customer, “Many Dymon customers were saying they wanted to sell some of their excess stuff, but they were frustrated that there weren’t really many convenient sales options available to them,”explains Dicker “so we developed our on-line marketplace as a safe, con venient, hassle-free way for customers to sell and buy stuff.”
You should take the time to drop by one of Dymon’s convenient locations across the City – they really are unlike anything you have ever seen before. If you have too much stuff and need to declutter, and we all face that situation from time to time, Dymon should deﬁnitely be the place you end up.
Dymon is certainly not prepared to rest on its laurels “We are continually introducing new service s and products to improve what D y m o n h a s t o o f f e r, ” s a y s C r e i g h t o n

Adjacent property owners flabbergasted Continued from Page 3
â€œSmith bought the rights to walk horses on the waterfront to Jerryâ€™s Jetty. There is nothing legal in documentation that I can find that it was actually a private property before it sold. Then all of a sudden there was ownership and a sale. Who paid taxes on this stuff? Was it bought as a tax sale? I couldnâ€™t find anything registered prior to that. If I owned the waterfront, I wouldnâ€™t be too happy about that.â€? DEVELOPMENTS UNLIKELY
Maheral agreed that whoever owns the land likely wonâ€™t be allowed to develop it. â€œThey canâ€™t do anything with it. They canâ€™t put a building on it or any kind of structure, not even a fence.
There was never a 66-foot allowance along there.â€? Much of the beach is underwater most of the year. The beach property measures from about one foot in width to 68 feet at its widest point, according to the map. It is nearly 6.8 feet below the floodplain, one of the lowest points of the entire Ottawa River. In regard to the forest property, Maheral added, â€œthey are trying to sell the lot with waterfront rights. There is no value to it otherwise. If you have rights to access, then you would have access to waterfront, but you still would have to get permits to develop a floodplain. Vacant land with no frontage on water canâ€™t be worth anywhere near what theyâ€™re asking. Any agent with any local experience wouldnâ€™t even take this on.â€? El-Chantiry said the city consid-
ered buying the forest land to add to Torbolton Forest but the asking price was not acceptable at the time. â€œI asked if the city would be interested in buying the forest land. It is ANSI land, and when the city valued the property, what the owner wants is way out of reach. The city would still be willing to negotiate for the property to add to the forest.â€? He added that, â€œproperty owners on the water side of Bayview are paying taxes for waterfront because they have exclusive access and a private view. Itâ€™s all in a floodplain, so no one can do anything with it. Who owns that little bit of property is irrelevant in my opinion.â€? Anne Armitage, a riverfront property owner adjacent to the beach access being offered for sale, is concerned about the potential sale of the land.
â€œI am absolutely flabbergasted that the beach is for sale. For residents such as myself that are not familiar with the issue it is quite alarming. â€œI have not yet had time to look into the laws governing waterfront properties but this all seems to be questionable to say the least,â€? added Armitage. â€œI basically own the property to the high water mark, as is indicated on my survey. How can the sand past that point possibly be a commodity, especially as this is sand that is under water for a good part of the year? I am astounded but it would seem that the people that own the land have put all three parcels together to include the beach so that the community will be forced, or coerced, into buying it.â€?
Clarification An inaccurate inference could be read into the Jan. 24, 2013 story â€˜Tragedy on the Ottawaâ€?. While it is true that police told media â€œa single person was found inside the vehicleâ€? it could be inferred that a second person was no longer in the vehicle. That was not the case. Police reported seeing one body pinned to the seat but could not confirm a second occupant. They could not confirm that an occupant was present in the far-side seat because the occupant in the near-side seat obstructed the view. The West Carleton ReviewEMC regrets any unfounded speculation that may have followed.
Kanata Theatre opens 2013 with award-winning drama Jim Holmes Kanata Theatre
There is a sense of puzzlement in the title of Kanata Theatreâ€™s upcoming show. For some, Rabbit Hole will conjure up images of Alice in Wonderland. Alice, you will remember, enters a world of chaos and confusion when she ventures â€œdown the rabbit holeâ€?. Or as one commentator put it, â€œeverything went crazyâ€?. For some it is a metaphor for adventure into the unknown. Subtler forces are at play in David Lindsay-Abaireâ€™s Pulitzer award winning play. His rabbit hole comes from a childrenâ€™s story, The Runaway Bunny, and leads to a parallel universe-infinite universe in which each person can find alternate versions of himself or herself. There can be happy versions of sad persons, for ex-
ample. It is this discovery by Becca (played by Chrissy Hollands) that makes Rabbit Hole an ultimately happy play in spite of its seemingly sad circumstances. Rabbit Hole gives shape and meaning to a definition of grief by another playwright in another time in these words spoken by Constance in Shakespeareâ€™s King John: â€œGrief fills the room up of my absent child, Lies in his bed, walks up and down with me, Puts on his pretty looks, repeats his words, Remembers me of all his gracious parts, Stuffs out his vacant garments with his form.â€? David Lindsay-Abaire has scored triumphs with his two most recent hits and can fairly be described as one of the hottest playwrights in the business. In addition to its Pulitzer Prize, Rabbit Hole was
the platform for a Tony Award for Cynthia Nixon. His more recent play, Good People, earned for Frances McDormand a Tony Award. Kanata Theatreâ€™s production is directed by Brooke Keneford. It features Tim Mabey as Howie Corbett, Rosemary Keneford as Nat, Susan Nugent as Izzy, Chrissy Hollands as Becca Corbett, and Jordan Campbell as Jason Willette. Rabbit Hole by David Lindsay-Abaire runs in the Ron Maslin Playhouse 1 Ron Maslin Way, just off Terry Fox, Tuesdays to Saturdays Feb. 5 to 9 and Feb. 12 to 16. Tickets are $20.

Day camps are packed with activities and fun.
A summer filled with activities pants to enjoy the outdoors while getting involved in supervised activities. If you decide on a camp lasting several weeks, you can pay for as many weeks as you choose depending on your own vacation. In municipalities, the program often follows a speciﬁc theme which evolves over the summer. The children meet every day in the school yard or in a park where they participate in many different games. Indoor activities are organized
during periods of rain. Camp programs often include time for swimming in outdoor pools or lakes as well as trips to tourist attractions and other interesting sites. Normally, children still at primary school are grouped according to their age. Traditionally, the day camp adventure ﬁnishes with a big party to remember the highlights of the summer and for everyone to say their goodbyes. – Metro Creative Graphics
EMC lifestyle - Even though we’re still in the middle of winter, it’s already time to think about the children’s long summer holidays. Among the myriad possibilities available, day camps organized by municipalities or private organizations are very popular choices. As soon as the school year ﬁnishes, the children can get together for a program packed with activities. Lasting from ﬁve days to six or seven weeks, the day camp allows partici-

Learning shouldnâ€™t stop just because school is out Brains need stimulation all year long; without it, kids can lose academic ground. A summer program at Oxford Learning keeps brains switched on and prevents students from starting next year behind. Which means a better start in the fall, and a better school year.

Finding the right summer camp involves balancing a number of different considerations, including your child's interests, day camp versus overnight camp, location, and cost.
How to choose a summer camp: a guide for parents Matt Barr
Only you can decide when the time is right. â€˘ Convenient location: Location is important because you will have to drop off and pick up your child every day. Youâ€™ll want to consider your drive time and also keep in mind the hours of the camp. â€˘ Cost: Of course, the cost is something to consider. The cost of camp should reflect the service provided. When comparing camps by price make sure that you are comparing apples to apples. Some camps include lunches, while others include snacks, T-shirts, hats, extended hours and field trips. Price alone can be misleading. Iâ€™ve always believed, â€œYou get what you pay for.â€? See ASKING, page 16

EMC lifestyle - Summer is a great time for kids. They need to get away from the everyday stress of school as much as adults need to get away from their full time jobs. What better way to help kids relax and enjoy their time off than to send them to summer camp? (By the way, this gives parents a nice break too.) Before you make a camp decision for your child, there are a lot of factors to consider. You will want to do your homework before you drop your child off for the day to be cared for by people you hardly know. Itâ€™s not easy. There are so many camps to consider and they come in all shapes and sizes. There are
day camps, overnight camps, golf camps, horseback riding camps and science camps to name a few. Here are some general considerations: â€˘ Your childâ€™s interests: What does your child like to do? Children know what they like and donâ€™t like. Ask them for their input. If your child is active and loves to play sports, a sports camp is probably right for him or her. If your child is creative, then choose a camp that offers arts and crafts. â€˘ Day camp versus overnight camp: Depending on the age, maturity and independence of your child, he or she may or may not be ready for an overnight camp. Some overnight camps accept children as young as six years old.

• Research: With pencil in hand, contact the camps you are considering and ask some specific questions. Not all camps are created equal, so ask the same questions to each camp director and compare their answers. You need to feel comfortable with their answers before you make your choice. This is not an exhaustive list, but here are a few questions to get you started: 1. Who do you hire as counsellors? Are they experienced? How old are they? Are they certified in CPR and first aid? Have they undergone a criminal record check? 2. What are your hours for the camp program and for pre- and post-camp care? Is there an additional cost for
extended hours? 3. What is the ratio of campers to counsellors? Ratios of 8:1 are common. A maximum of 10:1 is probably the most you would want. 4. Are snacks or a lunch provided? Is the lunch program optional or mandatory? 5. What do you do on rainy days? Are your facilities air conditioned? 6. Do the children swim every day? What are your rules for supervision at the pool? Is there a wading pool for young campers? 7. Do you offer any discounts? 8. Can you provide a list of references or testimonials? Word of mouth is the best reference. Ask around and find out where other parents are sending their children. 9. How are different age
groups divided? 10. What if my child doesn’t like the camp? Do you offer a guarantee? What is your cancellation policy? 11. Where can I find more information about your camp? Do you have a website? Can I register online? Can I pay by credit card? The best way to determine if a particular camp is right for you is to ask a lot of questions. Camp directors are used to answering questions about every detail of camp. If you don’t get the answers you are looking for, keep searching. You need to feel good about your decision. After all, you want your child to have an awesome camp experience that will forge memories to last a lifetime. – Camps Canada

Name a sport and thereâ€™s probably a camp out there for your children to hone their skills while having fun this summer.
Sports fans have a lot of choice most popular sports during the summer. One or two weeks at a specialized summer school will allow young hockey players to develop their abilities and improve their play thanks to the advice and supervision of a qualiďŹ ed team of instructors. Apart from training sessions on the ice, the program usually includes off-ice exercises, video sessions and other recreational activities. Over the years, soccer has gained so much in popularity across the country that many camps now specialize in this sport for its young fans; a great way for players to de-
velop their talents and improve their technique. As well as being able to practise their favourite sport during the summer, fans of golf, tennis, baseball and athletics can also improve their skills at specialized camps. The programming at these camps can vary as to content and often include extracurricular activities. In short, there is no lack of choice for young people interested in a particular sport and who wish to develop their potential while experiencing a wonderful group adventure. â€“ Metro Creative Graphics

By discovering the answers to all these questions, youâ€™ll be able to find the ideal camp for your children. The next step is to compile a list of the camps which interest you and discuss the different possibilities with your children. A search for additional information on each of these camps will help in making a final choice. It is a good idea to take into account the length of the stay, the quality of the facilities and the food, safety considerations, the programs offered, the training of the instructors as well as registration cost.
Once the final selection has been made and you have decided on the dates, be sure to sign up as soon as possible because the same dates are often popular with a lot of other parents. In many cases it is possible to visit the camp during an open house in order to become familiar with the surroundings and with the personnel who will be in charge of your children. This is also a good occasion for both parents and children to feel more secure about the coming adventure. â€“ Metro Creative Graphics

It takes only inches of water to drown a person, especially a young child. Swimming only where there is a certiďŹ ed lifeguard can make water recreation safer. Individuals should follow the guidelines posted regarding swimming and avoid oceans when storms are brewing because of rip tides and undertows. Children should always be carefully monitored around water. Self-latching gates around pools can help deter
entry as well as safety covers or retractable pool ladders. Remember, pool ďŹ‚oats and water wings should not be used as a substitute for a life vest.

Mosquitoes, biting ďŹ‚ies, bees, wasps, and other insects are in full force. Using an insect repellent can help keep them at bay and avoid bites. In addition to insects, animals like bats, squirrels, raccoons and bears are more active in the warm weather. During the time of dawn and dusk deer may be on the prowl for food before the heat of day.
