Historic Cheshire Cat lost to fire Much-adored pub, former schoolhouse burned to ground

NEWS

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

Up to

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.� Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority general manager Paul Lehamn confirmed, “There are provincial regulations governed by municipalities regarding ANSI lands. We’d have to look into the policies in the municipality. “There is a large area of floodplain in Constance Bay. In floodplain, there is potential for restrictions to any form of development,� said Lehman. “If 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.� However, he added that, “The authority tries to recognize existing development as opposed to new development.� Local realtor Glen Maheral, a long-time resident of the Bay, said, “The property has been for sale for over a year, but until then I didn’t even know the land behind houses on Bayview wasn’t Torbolton Forest. There is no deed to that strip of land that I am aware of. I don’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 “approximately 1.3 km (9.3 acres) of beach fronting along the Ottawa River� as well as “56 acres adjacent to the Torbolton Forest� and a “1.1 acre property on Doris Currie Road.� Listing Agent Beth Bonvie told the West Carleton Review-EMC that, “neither I nor my clients were involved in the purchase of the properties that abut the waterfront� and therefore she was unable to comment on the property other than to confirm it is for sale. “There 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

National awards program recognizes clinic for IT efforts Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC news – 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 Infoway’s ImagineNation Outcomes Challenge. The awards have helped fuel the use of health IT innovation in local communities and across Canada. “West Carleton is on the leading edge in terms of getting patients involved in their own care,� said Richard C. Alvarez, president and CEO of Canada Health Infoway. “These are self-management tools.� Carleton-Mississippi Mills MP Gordon O’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. “It really cuts out waste,� said O’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 isn’t at the point of cutting out redundancies in testing at multiple providers – liability remains an issue – O’Connor in nonetheless impressed with the clinic’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. “Our patients are very careful of asking informed questions,� he said, thanks to the new interactive website found at wcfht.ca. “The questions are getting better.� 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. “They can track their progress and make adjustments as needed,� Sellers said. The clinic’s catchment area includes Kanata, Stittsville, and Carleton Place.

Original Carp Fair presidents pay surprise visit Continued from front

“Change is inevitable, but it’s how we manage change that matters,� 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 didn’t get to represent the women’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. That’s when he turned to Trafford for guidance. “It’s unfortunate we didn’t have women involved in the fair in my time,� 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. “There were a few bumps along the way,� 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 didn’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.

The upcoming 150th anniversary of the Carp Fair, set for Sept. 26 to 29 this year, welcomes new presidents to the board. 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. “The 149th year can be called anything but typical,� Johnston said. “Usually presidents get a few months to ease into the role. But within three days we faced the biggest challenge in the fair’s modern history.� 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 “fabrications� to describe aspects of the minutes. Caldwell said a vote was taken and the board decided that the minutes faithfully recorded what transpired. “The way it was written is the way it happened,� Caldwell said. “Hand on heart, Paul?� Johnston said. “Hand on heart.�

With new government minimums, R50 (approx 18â€? of blown insulation) is now code. Most newer builds have between R34-R40, with some older homes having as little as R20 in the attic. Other beneďŹ ts to upgrading your attic insulation are creating greater home comfort and helping to raise the resale value of your home. Rymar insulation has been in business insulating homes and commercial buildings for the past 12 years. Rymar prides itself on upgrading attics in the Ottawa area and has a team of technical consultants that can assess and make the proper attic insulation recommendations.

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

W

inter’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 don’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, it’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 won’t stop everyone. It’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 city’s coldest days are still enjoyable. Be it organizing a winter

carnival in a park or flooding outdoor rinks, it’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

– but also visible are the big toothy grins on the faces of children as they wobble across the ice. And it isn’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 isn’t so much the game. It’s about family and togetherness (it’s no coincidence that the event is scheduled close to Family Day for Ontarians.)

When the going – or weather in this case – gets tough, it has the strange byproduct of bringing friends, families and communities closer together. Let’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. ’Tis the season to be jolly.

COLUMN

Boo to the hockey boobirds CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

I

t’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 Panthers’ 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 didn’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. That’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 you’re teaching them that hating people is wrong; at the rink you’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, Ottawa’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 didn’t do those things. He was booed for being a great player on the opposing team. Isn’t that crazy? You boo a guy because he’s on the other team and he’s good. That’s how it works and it’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: “We boo someone to take them off their game.� 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 won’t even hear it, such is his level of concentration. That’s what Erik Karlsson said after the game in Winnipeg. He didn’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 it’s a free country and all that. And of course words like “sportsmanship� are rarely heard these days. Still, wouldn’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 camouage. Nature’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 camouage for hares, weasels are predatory animals and likely have less need for camou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 sun’s energy but it readily conducts body heat too. Ravens and the woodpeckers compensate by 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.

MICHAEL RUNTZ

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 “black� 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 – each the most northern representative of its group – 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 camouage. Thus, just like many other adaptations, white colouration offers a double beneďŹ t to its

West Carleton Review EMC - Thursday, January 31, 2013 9


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.

M

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.

R0011887354-0131

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

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Smith bought the rights to walk horses on the waterfront to Jerryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find anything registered prior to that. If I owned the waterfront, I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be too happy about that.â&#x20AC;? DEVELOPMENTS UNLIKELY

Maheral agreed that whoever owns the land likely wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be allowed to develop it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do anything with it. They canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x153;they 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be worth anywhere near what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re asking. Any agent with any local experience wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even take this on.â&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x153;I 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&#x20AC;? He added that, â&#x20AC;&#x153;property owners on the water side of Bayview are paying taxes for waterfront because they have exclusive access and a private view. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;? Anne Armitage, a riverfront property owner adjacent to the beach access being offered for sale, is concerned about the potential sale of the land.

SELLER ALARMED

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I 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&#x20AC;&#x153;I 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&#x20AC;? added Armitage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I 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&#x20AC;?

Clarification An inaccurate inference could be read into the Jan. 24, 2013 story â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Tragedy on the Ottawaâ&#x20AC;?. While it is true that police told media â&#x20AC;&#x153;a single person was found inside the vehicleâ&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x153;down the rabbit holeâ&#x20AC;?. Or as one commentator put it, â&#x20AC;&#x153;everything went crazyâ&#x20AC;?. For some it is a metaphor for adventure into the unknown. Subtler forces are at play in David Lindsay-Abaireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pulitzer award winning play. His rabbit hole comes from a childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s King John: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grief 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&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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. Curtain is at 8 p.m. sharp. For tickets call the Box Office at 613-8314435 or email BoxOffice@ KanataTheatre.com. For more information visit kanatatheatre.com.

Day camps are packed with activities and fun.

SUBMITTED

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

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&#x20AC;˘ Convenient location: Location is important because you will have to drop off and pick up your child every day. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll want to consider your drive time and also keep in mind the hours of the camp. â&#x20AC;˘ 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always believed, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You get what you pay for.â&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;˘ Your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interests: What does your child like to do? Children know what they like and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;˘ 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x201C; Metro Creative Graphics

By discovering the answers to all these questions, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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&#x201A;oats and water wings should not be used as a substitute for a life vest.

WILDLIFE DANGERS

Mosquitoes, biting ďŹ&#x201A;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.

EMC lifestlye - While skin cancer and sunburn are the most obvious dangers from the sun, there are other hazards as well. Failure to protect the eyes from UV sun exposure can result in photokeratitis, irreversible sunburn of the cornea. While it may cause temporary vision loss, recurrent incidences of photokeratitis can lead to permanent vision loss as well. Individuals who are exposed to sunlight between 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. without UV protection may become sunburned, increasing their risk for skin cancer. Dehydration and heat stroke are other potential hazards. Drinking plenty of water and other hydrating ďŹ&#x201A;uids (not diuretics like alcohol) can keep

EMC lifestyle - For children with learning disabilities, all the various activities that fill a child’s world sometimes appear as difficult obstacles to overcome. The same may be true for their parents! This type of challenge may leave a family feeling discouraged when the time comes to consider summer camp for their child.

A BENEFICIAL ROUTINE

R0011892215_0131

Before enrolling a child in a specific summer camp, parents should ensure that the person in charge is familiar with learning disabilities and the special needs of children

with this type of difficulty. The chosen camp should offer a certain amount of flexibility in the organization of activities and not have more than eight children for each camp counsellor. Camps that focus on competitive activities should be avoided. The regular routine of most summer camps is reassuring for children living with learning disabilities. They may enjoy the security of a structured environment that incorporates outdoor activities and other outlets for pent-up energy and frustrations. Indeed, summer camp may be a tremendous relief for

your child. Without the pressure of academic results, exams, and homework, a child with learning disabilities is freed up to improve his or her physical abilities and work on social skills with peers and interactions with people in positions of authority. SPECIALIZED CAMPS

Camps dedicated specifically to children with learning disabilities do exist. These special camps offer programs that are usually centred on the development of the child and his or her inherent abilities. - Metro Creative Graphics

OPINION

The cat came back, and so do did the pheasant EMC lifestyle - I pulled into the laneway one day and saw something that I thought was a wild turkey. It just stood there, looking at me. I slowly approached and it turned and ran into the cedars, its long red tail pulling a trail through the snow behind it. Henry! We raised pheasants this year, and one of them got away. In fact it escaped a couple of times. I’m convinced it’s the same one. I don’t know how he lasted through those two heavy snowfalls, but he did. Maybe he joined a herd of wild turkeys and ate what they ate. They probably accepted him, thinking he was a skinnier, more colourful version of themselves. The European version. In any case, he was back, and he was hungry. The Farmer put an ice cream container full of feed on the ground near the cedars, where he seemed to hang out. The next day the feed had obviously been eaten, hopefully by Henry and not a marauding squirrel. But we didn’t see the colourful bird again for a while. In the meantime, I was busy adopting out my barn kitten, Junior. I had forgotten about the photos posted on the Village Kitten Rescue website so I was a bit surprised when

DIANA FISHER Accidental Farmwife Ashley called for an appointment. The Farmer, however, was thrilled. With the nastier weather we have been getting lately, the adolescent kittens are constantly darting through the door and into the house to warm up. They sleep in the barn with the animals where they are quite warm, but they do enjoy a nap in a sunbeam in the TV room. And they love to tear down the hallway upstairs, through the bedroom and bathroom and back into the hall, like a Monte Carlo race route. You can hear their claws ripping at the carpet as they gain traction and speed, only to crash headlong into walls and each other. Drives the Farmer nuts. “Why do we have four cats in this house?” he asked me, disgusted. He is more of a dog person. I promised to try again to find homes for these semioutdoors, semi-indoors animals. And I thought I had

found at least one, when Ashley called. On the night of the appointment, I made sure all of the cats were in the house. Ashley and I sat on the basement carpet and tried to lure Junior out of his hiding place in the dollhouse. Since his trip to the vet last fall, however, he has become wary of cages and strangers. So he was having nothing of our attempts to trap him. I kept thinking to myself…if he is resisting being caught I’m not sure he will make a very good pet…but she really liked his colouring and wanted to try. Finally the Farmer came downstairs with a huge net and a live trap. He was ever so helpful. I caught Junior, stuffed him in Ashley’s carrier, and off they went, Junior’s plaintive wail trailing behind them. The next day I got the first of a string of reports by email. Junior was hiding in Ashley’s

spare room, unwilling to come out and explore. The next day, he met and made friends with the other house cat, but he still resisted being touched by his new human and the slightest noise from the puppy sent him darting under the furniture. Finally he gave in and allowed Ashley to pet him while he ate bribes of cat treats, but he just wasn’t settling in. I thought to myself, well, that’s the way he is here. He lets you get close, but that’s it. No picking up, no cuddling. He’s just not that kind of cat. The next day, the cat came back. He immediately went downstairs to his dollhouse, sniffed all the corners, then darted upstairs to the patio door. I slid it open and he ran out into the darkness. Five minutes later he was back, crying at the door to be let in. I let him in and he ran upstairs, his brother and sister on his tail. The Farmer just looked at me and shook his head. Oh well. It will be springtime soon. Then we will open the patio door, the cats will run out and we won’t see them again until fall. Henry the pheasant, however, has been spotted again, standing guard at the driveway. Email the Farmwife at: dianafisher1@gmail.com

Feedback sought for floodplain mapping EMC news - Identifying lands that are vulnerable to flooding is an important responsibility for Ontario’s Conservation Authorities. Over the next five years, three conservation authorities will be undertaking a number of flood risk mapping studies on watercourses within the City of Ottawa and their respective areas of jurisdiction. For some watercourses old flood risk mapping will be updated and for some watercourses flood risk maps will be created for the first time. These studies are being done through collaboration between the three Conservation Authorities within the City of Ottawa: Mississippi Valley Conservation (MVC), Rideau Valley Conservation Authority (RVCA) and South Nation Conservation (SNC). The city recognizes a need to update its official plan and zoning overlays with up-todate flood risk mapping and has provided funding and high quality topographical informa-

tion, enabling the conservation authorities to move ahead with those studies sooner than would otherwise be possible. These studies will make use of contemporary methods in hydrologic and hydraulic analysis, all the available historical records of stream flow and/or water level and the most up to date topographical data. This will be used to produce updated estimates of the 1:100 year flood discharge, corresponding water surface elevations and flood lines for the watercourses under consideration. The resulting flood risk maps will identify areas along the river that are vulnerable to flooding, and where new development is to be restricted or prohibited in accordance with Provincial planning policies. When completed, the new flood risk mapping will be used by the City of Ottawa when updating its Official Plan schedules and Zoning overlays and in the review of development applications

under the Planning Act. Conservation Authorities will use the same mapping in the administration and enforcement of regulations made under the Conservation Authorities Act. In the first year of this initiative, each CA will focus its efforts on the following study areas: Mississippi Valley Conservation • Feedmill Creek • Poole Creek • Kizell Drain Historical records, news clippings, photographs and local anecdotal stories and memories of past flood events can be useful in confirming the accuracy of the calculations and resulting floodplain mapping. Local residents with this kind

of information are encouraged to share their information and knowledge with MVC’s Doug Nuttall (613-259-2421 ext. 258 or dnuttall@mvc.on.ca. Those interested in learning more about the project or wishing to be included on our contact list are also encouraged to contact the respective conservation authority. Once the technical work for individual study areas is completed and floodplain mapping has been prepared, a public information session will be held to collect public feedback. Any new information or comments will be taken into consideration in further refinement of the mapped flood plain limits.

Health minister announces student loan forgiveness New initiative aims to fill healthcare void in rural communities years.

An invitation to a Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s party EMC entertainment - If you enjoy Celtic music, songs from other origins like folk music and the Celtic harp, then come to an evening performance by the Kanata Choral Society on Saturday, Feb. 9 at 7:30 p.m. You will be treated to music, non-alcoholic beverages and desserts. In contrast to our other choral performances which tend to be on the more classical side, this evening will be on the lighter side to help you, and us, deal with the winter blues. Our harp soloist is Lucile Brais Hildesheim. She is a native of Montreal and received her Bachelor of Music degree from McGill University. She was a finalist in the CBC national competition in 1981 and as a result was the harpist in residence at the Banff Centre dur-

ing that summer. After obtaining a Celtic harp, she learned new repertoire suitable for the smaller harp and became interested in folk and other styles of music. She has recorded with several choirs and has three solo albums, which include some of her own arrangements and compositions. The concert takes place in St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Anglican Church, 20 Young Rd. Tickets are $20 for adults at the door or $18 in advance. Seniors and students cost $15. The price includes admission and drinks and desserts. Tickets are available at all CD Warehouse locations and at Domenicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Music.

Town takes steps to put financial house in order EMC news – It was a mess. Even councillors expecting to hear bad news about the Town of Arnprior’s financial practices were startled by the depth of the problems and the amount of money involved. In a report to council Monday, town treasurer Jennifer Morawiec outlined a litany of woes and the steps being taken to get the town’s finances back on track. One of the more startling revelations was the fact the Town had not received $1.6 million in Ontario Municipal Partnership Funding because of a delay in submitting its 2010 and 2011 applications. The reports were issued by the new administration in late October and the money was received in December. It was the biggest chunk of the $1.85 million recouped by the town in the last few months, with $400,000 still to come in from the first $2.25 million owing targeted by administration. Morawiec is anticipating $400,000 will be received soon, now that the town’s 2011 county and school tax reconciliations have been completed. So the town has made “huge, huge steps,” said CAO Michael Wildman, noting that tackling financial issues to bring openness transparency and efficiency to the processes was his number one priority when hired in August. Some of problems have been “festering” since the 1980s, he said. Morawiec reported the problems found in the four months she has been on the job included such things as significant delays and backlogs in required tasks, failure to act on tax and water bill collections, inadequate documentation, outdated policies, and failure to address software glitches. Bank reconciliations were 18 months behind, but have been brought upto-date thanks to help from temporary staff. Money owing the town increased by $180,000 from 2011 to 2012, so administration is taking steps to reverse the trend. The financial report is a key element in the new administration’s efforts, on behest of council, to overhaul the way things are done at town hall. The changes, outlined in the strategic plan approved Jan, also include new water billing and procurement policies and an overhaul of

council’s advisory committee system “We knew we had issues,” said Mayor David Reid. “But this is more than we anticipated.” He said it has taken time for the council elected in 2010 to get a handle on the situation, but with a new CAO, treasurer and deputy treasurer in place and more new officials on the way, “I’m very confident we’ll be able to turn this around … this is a good start.” Reeve Walter Stack said he is not surprised there were problems, but said it is disturbing that there are so many issues involving millions of dollars. Calling it a “reflection on the past administration,” he said the financial troubles are a burden on all the town’s taxpayers who are paying their fair share. Stack suggested council look at a zero-based budget process this year, to ensure all items are justified. “We need to get a handle on where we are,” he said. Coun. Lynn Grinstead said that while she expected some problems, “this is far beyond the realm of what I expected.” In response to her question as to what type of accounts are behind, Morawiec said it is in a large number of areas from property taxes and water bills to miscellaneous items. But if you owe the town money, look out. She explained that the town is putting in new collection policies and best practice methods in attempt to collect as much of the money owing as possible. “Finance staff will continue to pursue collections to the fullest extent possible, and will investigate measures to prevent recurrences of a similar nature,” her report said. As of Dec. 31, an unaudited report indicates the town’s accounts receivable balance is close to $4 million. That includes $2.3 million in property taxation, $1.1 million in water/wastewater bills, $252,000 in general accounts and $125,000 to the Nick Smith Centre. When asked about the latter, Morawiec explained that the money is owing to pay for ice time and other services. Reid said that some people get into arrears on no fault of their own, so the town needs to work with them on payment plans. But for some delinquents, there is no good reason and not making them pay up is unfair to the rest of the citizens, he said. “If we don’t collect (from them), we have to get it from the people who are already paying their taxes.” See FINANCE, page 26

Council to implement changes FINANCE, from page 24

Morawiec reported that while a number of the improvements will take significant time to see full resolution, progress has been made in “re-engineering” the finance department and several initiatives are well under way to establish proper procedures, address outstanding items and find efficiencies. Where possible, accounts receivable are being added to

the tax roll. A new water and wastewater billing and collection policy will help the town finally get that touchy area under control by cracking down on long-term delinquents. The policy sets out collection procedures, clear payment timelines, steps to disconnect the water supply, and disconnection and reconnection frees. The town will also work with property-owners receiv-

ing leak adjustments to determine what steps are needed to fix the problem. Staff issued about $233,000 payment-inlieu-of-taxes notices in the last two months of 2012 and Morawiec said she is happy to report that $226,000 has been received. The administration is also planning to improve and streamline polices and practices regarding reserve funds, the gas tax and property registration.

Nicknamed â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Silver Fox,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he was inducted into the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame in 1986. His sons Jamie and Jeff have continued the family tradition of country music. They will be among 21 individual or group acts who are scheduled to sing and play during what is being billed as the Ron McMunn â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Silver Foxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Country Music 2013 Heart Jam. The annual event will be staged in the main upper hall of the Carleton Place arena complex from 1:45 to 8 p.m. Feb. 3. Doors open at 1 p.m. Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event was a complete sellout and the capacity crowd of 400 raised $8,000 for the Ottawa Heart Institute, one of the top cardiac care facilities on the continent. Bob White, a long-time employee of the Carleton Place Recreation and Culture Department, is also familiar for his role in organizing fundraising events locally, especially country music shows. White is once again assisting with the early February venture. He says the jam, which has run for over two decades, will be in the style Ron McMunn preferred, unscripted and easy going. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is an audience participation event, not a concert. People will be encouraged to get up and dance. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about having fun. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of course it (jam) has also raised a lot of money over the years,â&#x20AC;? White notes. He says the organizing committee is hoping to equal or better last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s total. White stresses that country music fans in west Ottawa, along with Lanark and Renfrew counties, should purchase their tickets early if they plan to attend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is an extremely popular event across the district. Last year we had to turn many away at the door. There were some very unhappy people. But the facility is limited to 400 and we are obligated to respect the safety regulations (provincial fire code). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t plan on purchasing tickets at the door,â&#x20AC;? White advises. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Buy them early at the outlets involved.â&#x20AC;? Tickets for the fundraiser at $15 apiece and can be purchased at the Carleton Place Town Hall reception desk, Temptations, 117 Bridge

Street in Carleton Place; the Naismith Pub on Ottawa St. in Almonte, Nicholsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sundries on Graham St. in Pakenham and at Markâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cobbler Shop on Gore St. E. in Perth. Charlie Kitts of Almonte, a 2010 inductee into the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame, is a member of the organizing committee. Kitts will again act as emcee and auctioneer for the afternoon and evening. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The jam is held during Heart Month (February) and it is extremely popular,â&#x20AC;? Kitts observes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It started at the Army, Navy Air Force Club (in Carleton Place) and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been running for more than 20 years now.â&#x20AC;? Carleton Place councillor Jerry Flynn, who is also well known for his involvement in local musical events, is co-chairing the jam committee along with Darlene Thibault. Flynn says the event is an excellent fundraiser. The always popular auction, held as part of the event, includes homemade baked goods, Lanark County maple syrup (Lanark County is Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Maple Syrup Capital), beauty products and other items. Two 15 minute auction breaks are scheduled during the venture. Anyone who wishes to donate an item for the auction is asked to telephone White at 613-2535046. The early February extravaganza will feature a whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s who of the country music scene in Lanark County, Ottawa and Eastern Ontario. Besides the McMunn brothers other headliners include Fred Ducharme, a member of the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame; well-known singer John Foster, young Perth sensation Henry Norwood (he is gaining a major reputation in the region), George Chenier, who entertained during last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hall of Fame induction ceremonies in Ottawa; Kathleen Stroud, one of the ever popular Mississippi Girls and Harry Adrain, a popular fixture on the Perth music scene. Also scheduled to take part are the Carleton Place duo Smokey Rose along with bands Ridinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Shotgun and Blend Nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Roots. Among the local contingent is rising singer/songwriter Brea Lawrenson who, besides her regular work on the Ottawa pub circuit, has spent considerable time performing in Nashville and in suburban Franklin, Tennessee (the city is twinned with Carleton Place) during the past three years. Carleton Place native Lawrenson is scheduled to return to Nashville soon to work on her songwriting as well as perform in and around the world country music capital. For more information on the upcoming Ron McMunn â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Silver Foxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Country Music 2013 Heart Jam telephone Flynn at 613-257-4748 or White at 613-253-5046. 1025.R0011697930

Carp brothers capture double ski racing medals EMC sports – It was a weekend of heartbreak and glory for the U12 Calabogie ski racers. The team kicked off their race schedule with back-toback events, a Slalom at Camp Fortune, Quebec Jan. 26 and a Giant Slalom (GS) Jan. 27 at Calabogie Peaks. In the Slalom race, only three racers out of the 11 finished two clean runs. Sam Alexander of Carp pulled off a fifth-place finish, and Owen Barr of Carp and Ryan Geddie of Kanata pulled off some nice turns to complete both runs. But despite some incredible skiing, the

sheer ice defeated the rest of the team, with the other racers blowing out of the course on one or both runs. The team came back ready for redemption the following day. Calabogie Peaks hosted the GS, so the athletes were pumped for some home hill action. The finish corral was full of smiles, as every racer skied a solid race and completed both runs. For the girls, Alyssa Steggall of Stittsville initiated the glory by earning a fourthplace ribbon with two flawless runs. Fellow racers Annabel

Wight of Kanata and Tess Schreider of Kingston skied well to come in 50th and 55th respectively. The boys then cleaned up the course, with a triple podium finish. Brothers Jack and Sam Alexander of Carp pulled off a stunning coincidence – they tied their first run at exactly 40:07 seconds, then on the second run, Jack edged Sam by only 1/100th of a second. Jack earned himself a silver medal, Sam a bronze, and Tyler Lefebvre of Calabogie completed the trio’s success by speeding in to snag a fifthplace ribbon.

49th. The U10s and U12s will see more action Feb. 1-3 when they travel to Le Relais in Quebec City. Meanwhile, the U14s are gearing up for speed camp at Calabogie Feb. 6-8, followed by a GS race at the Peaks Feb. 9. The U16s will be at Mont Cascades for a Slalom Feb. 9 and back home at Calabogie for a GS Feb. 10

ish in eighth, Jenna Wissing of Kanata was 22nd, Lauren Ferguson of Carp 27th, Alexandra Kerr of Kemptville 37th, Emma Schreider of Kingston 38th, and Jessica Earle 41st. The boys skied hard too, with Sam Duff of Pembroke picking up a fourth-place ribbon, and Travis Reid of Kingston close behind in seventh. Alex Duff of Pembroke did not complete his first run, but rallied on the second. Connor and Liam Maclean of Manotick skied to 48th and

Sean Swayze of Braeside skied magnificently, and was sitting in second following his first run, but did not finish the second. Zach Wroe of Burnstown skied two solid runs for 12th, Connor Allen of Manotick was 21st, Owen Barr of Carp 32nd and Ryan Geddie of Kanata 52nd. The U14 racers have been gathering excellent results as well. In a Slalom at Vorlage, Quebec Jan. 19, Sophia Tan of Kanata carved quickly to fin-

Exercise caution when towing snowmobiles EMC news - The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) and the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) are reminding snowmobilers to keep snowmobile trailers in good condition and to operate them safely, legally and with great caution. Watch your weight Every driver should know the maximum towing capacity for the tow vehicle, the maximum load capacity for the trailer being towed and be sure that the weight of sleds, cargo and people does not exceed these limits. It is also necessary to be in compliance with the specific requirements for the weight of a trailer be-

ing towed as found in The Highway Traffic Act (HTA). Secure your trailer Make sure that the ballhitch on your tow vehicle is the right size for the receiver on the trailer and that the lever closes firmly with a safety pin in place to prevent it from opening accidentally. Secure your sleds While on a trailer, a snowmobile should be secured with no less than three means of attachment to ensure the snowmobile does not shift in transit or become dislodged in the event of a collision. Check your lights Check your directional signals and stop lights prior to

every trip to ensure they are working properly. Faulty connections due to exposure to weather and elements can be a safety risk to you and other drivers. Get registered Make sure the trailer is plated and registered with the Ministry of Transportation (MTO). Even home-built trailers have to be registered and plated. Use proper tow mirrors: Properly sized and positioned side mirrors are crucial for safe lane changing and keeping an eye on your load while you’re hauling it. For more information on trailering, go to: e-laws.gov. on.ca.

John Pugh said new Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s North American Soccer League team is aiming to hire a coach by spring. submit their names of choice for the new Ottawa NASL franchise through a name-theteam contest. Pugh said they received more than 4,000 entries and added that it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be long before the decision on the name of the team is announced. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are working with a branding company from Oregon to look at branding both the football team and the soccer team,â&#x20AC;? said Pugh. On Jan. 17, OSEG appointed Bernie Ashe as the new CEO to oversee the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s operations, including sports franchises, entertainment business and Lansdowne Park operations.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are over excited to have been able to attract a man of his calibre. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a lot of managerial experience,â&#x20AC;? said Pugh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As the CEO of OSEG he has a lot on his plate. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite a job and we are happy with the man we selected to do it.â&#x20AC;? In a statement, Roger Greenberg, who is also an OSEG partner, said he was delighted that Ashe agreed to join the group and lead business operations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From the beginning, we planned to hire a CEO with a track record of success in diverse industries, including sports and entertainment, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve certainly found one in

It was a big moment when SamakĂŠâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents took him out to dinner in early November to tell him the big news theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d received in an e-mail from the MLS club. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When my meal came, they told me, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh, by the way, you made the Impact,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? SamakĂŠ recounts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had to go to the bathroom and put some water on my face to make sure it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a dream. I was very happy.â&#x20AC;? SamakĂŠ had previously attended open tryouts for the Impact academy, where he was suddenly thrust into a new role as defensive sweeper. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was scared for my life,â&#x20AC;? reflects the bright Louis-Riel high school student who spent most of his career as a striker. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You know what? If they put me there, it must be because they see something,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; so I played my best.â&#x20AC;?

R0011796325_1206

A big part of the U16 squad that held its own in a competitive OYSL division this past summer, SamakĂŠ counts many fond memories from his time with OSU. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to miss my club very much. I love my club, I love my school, and I love my mom,â&#x20AC;? SamakĂŠ emphasizes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She used to drive me to every game, every training, and every day sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d ask me how soccer went. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be weird not having that home feeling. I guess Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to mature a lot very quickly.â&#x20AC;? SamakĂŠ will be moving to the Impactâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s training residence along with two other players whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d started training with OSU this winter before now also joining the Impact â&#x20AC;&#x201C; YannAlexandre Fillion and Nevello Yoseke. Force 2000 player Tarik Jouali is also amongst the younger players invited to the next round of trials. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not a lot of soccer players get the chance to go to a professional academy. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really a dream for me,â&#x20AC;? SamakĂŠ says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My main goal would be to go pro. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great opportunity, and I want to prove to them that I am the right player for them.â&#x20AC;?

     

 

When Abdou SamakĂŠâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family moved to MontrĂŠal-Nord from Bamako, Mali when he was 5, they carried big dreams. When SamakĂŠ began playing soccer at age 9 in Ottawa, it was the start of a new dream. And now at age 16, the dream of becoming a professional soccer player is that much closer for the Ottawa South United star who just moved back to Montreal to join the Impactâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s youth academy.

For SamakĂŠ, the attraction to the OSU Force Academy was a combination of the opportunity to play in the OYSL, the professionalism throughout the club, and the top-notch coaching available. Shaw and head coach Paul Harris ( former Everton FC Academy coach) were a big help, he adds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They really brought me to the next level and helped me take that next step to the academy,â&#x20AC;? SamakĂŠ explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a thin margin between being good and being good enough to enter a pro academy. I feel they really helped me step over that bar.â&#x20AC;?

EMC sports - The search for Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s North American Soccer League team coach could be a step closer, said Ottawa Fury owner and president John Pugh. The franchise will commence league play in 2014 as the major stadium reconstruction project at Frank Clair Stadium at Lansdowne Park is completed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do have a search in progress,â&#x20AC;? said Pugh, who is also a partner with NASL franchise owner Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have had some initial discussions with some coaches and we are now in the process of trying to get a short list of people that we would like to interview. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are looking at a coach that is known to soccer fans, who has respect for his peers, players, fans management and so on.â&#x20AC;? Pugh said he hopes the team will have a coach that meets the brand of soccer they want for the club. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a certain brand of soccer that we like â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which is possession with a purpose, that is exciting and good to watch. I think that is going to be one of the most important characteristics of the coach that we are looking for,â&#x20AC;? said Pugh. Canadian soccer supporters had a chance last month to

Bernie,â&#x20AC;? Greenberg said in a release shortly after the hiring. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He also has deep roots in our community and a history of community service, which speaks to his integrity and our core values. Bernie will be a great asset to our organization and our city.â&#x20AC;? OSEG partnered with the City of Ottawa to revitalize and manage Lansdowne Park, which will house a 24,000seat stadium for football, soccer and other outdoor events, a 9,800-seat arena, the historic Aberdeen Pavilion and Horticulture Building, the Ottawa Farmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Market, a new commercial district, an office tower, two condominium towers, townhomes and an urban park. OSEG will manage the facilities and own and operate a CFL football team, an NASL soccer team and the Ottawa 67â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OHL hockey team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m thrilled and honoured to be part of such an incredible team of community leaders and to be involved in such an important community project,â&#x20AC;? said Ashe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The new Lansdowne will soon be one of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most inviting, year-round destinations for everyone in our region, and my role is to ensure that it remains vibrant and viable for decades to come.â&#x20AC;? From 1991 to 1997, Ashe served as executive vice-president and CEO of the Ottawa Senators.

Peewee AA team wins International Silver Stick competition EMC Sports - The Silver Stick dream continued on for the Ottawa Valley Silver Seven Major Peewee AA team as they headed to Port Huron, MI for the International Finals from Jan 24. to 27 where they earned the Silver Stick championship. The team qualified for this tournament after winning the Sudbury Silver Stick Regional in December. The team went 2-1 in the round robin and that put the team in the first wild card position and set up the quarter-final game against the Ancaster Avalanche. “It’s an emotional weekend,” coach Cameron Baird said. “We actually lost our first game then got on a real nice roll. You had two pretty tired teams (in the finals); it’s a long weekend for a couple groups of 12-year olds.” In their first game, thee Silver Seven took care of business with a 6-4 win in a nail biter back and forth game that saw three lead changes. Next up were the Farmington Flames in the semi finals. A victory here would give either team a chance to play in the finals for the coveted Silver Stick. This game was everything it was billed up to be with excellent speed, pinpoint passing, deadly accurate shooting and stone walled defence and goaltending from both teams. The Silver Seven came out on top with a 2-1 victory when they scored a late third-period goal. With the win, Silver Seven were off to the finals against the Arapahoe Ice Warriors. Both teams were challenged by spectacular defence and goaltending. Oliver Carriere, assisted by Austin Vincent broke the scoreless tie to take the 1-0 lead in the second period.

SUBMITTED

The Silver sevens went from a wild card spot to winning the enre tournament in Port Huron, MI last weekend. The Ice Warriors responded in the third to tie up the game and force overtime. More spectacular goaltending by Silver Seven’s Sebastian Dubois was on display in OT until the 4:55 mark when Ryan Blanchfield scored with a top corner rocket to claim North American minor hockey supremacy and the coveted Silver Stick. “The overtime, it’s certainly a tough way to lose, and my hat goes off to the other team, they were fantastic,” said Baird. “I guess if you could choose to win in overtime, it does make it a little bit more dramatic and more exciting for the boys.” The International Silver Stick Association has been honored by having the original Silver Stick used for open-

ing ceremonies in 1958 displayed in the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto since 1982. Each year, after all the Silver Stick Finals Tournaments are completed, a plaque is placed in the Hall of Fame display case listing the team names of all the champions for that year. The Ottawa Valley Silver Seven will be honored to be included on that plaque for 2013. Interestingly, even though the Ottawa Valley Silver Seven hockey association has had tremendous success in its relatively short history, this is the first International Silver Stick championship for the Association. As well, the team has two generations of International Silver Stick champions on the team. Mark Seaman (assistant coach) won the midget championship with

Newmarket in 1984. His son Eric, can also now claim that title. The Silver Seven road to the 2013 Silver Stick championship - combined stats from Port Huron Finals and Sudbury regional: 11 games, with 10 wins, one loss; 46 goals for to 20 against. Team members include goalies Sebastian Dubois and Ben

Barkley, defenceman Cameron Belanger and forwards Ross Campbell and Ryan Blanchford, all of Stittsville; forward Pendel-Sutton-Pollock and defence Dan Hennessy of Almonte/Pakenham; Oliver Carrier of Carleton Place; forwards Mathew Banning, Nick Belli and Ben Whyte of Richmond/Munster; forwards Austin Vincent and

Eddie Olmstead of Perth/Lanark; defence Brian Arthur of West Carleton; defence Duncan Baird and Jonah Maybury, and forward Eric Seaman, all of Osgoode-Rideau. On the bench are head coach Cameron Baird, assistant coaches Mark Seaman and Joe Vincent, trainer Joe Belli and manager Richard Carriere.

Haggis on the menu at Robbie Burns dinner Nevil Hunt

nevil.hunt@metroland.com

EMC news - Diners turned out in tartan for a Scottish treat on Jan. 25 in Constance Bay, although not everyone was brave enough to tuck into a plate of haggis at a Robbie Burns dinner hosted at the legion hall. Burns is considered Scotlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national poet. He died in 1796 at the age of 27. In 2009, the Scottish public selected him as the greatest Scot by in a contest sponsored by Scottish TV network and his works are still enjoyed today. Burnsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; birthday is celebrated around the world anywhere that Scots live today. And that includes West Carletonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Iain and Kathryn Scott, who both still have a touch of their homeland accent. The Scotts lived up to their name, wearing the eveningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most eyecatching and authentic dress. Iainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s accent came to the fore as he read Burnsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; poem Address to a Haggis, a traditional opening to the dinner. The poem is not easy to follow, given that the language is a bit archaic, but it happily includes the slicing open of the haggis and ends with a shot of whisky. Kilts and a few tipples of Scotch made the legion hall feel a little more like Edinburgh or Glasgow. For those with no kilt in their cupboard, a tartan shirt was de rigueur. Ladies auxiliary president Arleen Morrow said the Constance Bay legion held Robbie Burns dinners in the distant past, and was happy to see the return of the tradition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been at least 20 years

Iain Scott addresses the haggis before the traditional Scottish meal is dished out. since weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had one,â&#x20AC;? Morrow said. Iain said he was happy to see so many people out for the occasion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is very positive,â&#x20AC;? Iain said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure how many people even knew who Robbie Burns was, but once again weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had great support from the community.â&#x20AC;? He said those not keen on

haggis would be able to tuck into a plate of shepherdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pie. Not everyone likes the traditional Scottish dish of sheepâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s innards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last week we had a show of hands (of who wanted haggis) and only about 10 per cent put up their hands,â&#x20AC;? Iain said. Kathryn prepared the haggis herself. She said the sheep

was from a local farm and she had a local butcher prepare the meat. In all, 90 dinners were served and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good chance that the evening will be repeated at the legion next year on or around Jan. 25.

Arleen Morrow walks the haggis into the dining hall while being serenaded by a bagpiper.

SENIORS

Mary’s fears came to life under the cloak of night EMC lifestyle - When winter had socked in around us out in Renfrew County, I developed a whole new collection of fears, which oddly only occurred at night. In the daytime, I loved the look of the wide-open fields deep in the whitest snow, the West Hill where we slid on makeshift toboggans, and the sounds of the sleigh bells as the horses pulled us along the Northcote Side Road. But when night wrapped around us, and we were bedded down upstairs, childish fears settled in, and I often had trouble finding sleep. I wondered if either of Mother’s predictions would come true while we were fast asleep in our beds. Mother, fearful of the raging Findlay Oval that had to be stoked every night by Father, was sure that the whole house would go up in flames and we would all be, as she said “fried in our beds.”

She based her fear on the fact that during the winter, we could count on at least two or three flue fires. These didn’t seem to bother Father in the least. When the pipes turned red, he would simply take his time rising from his spot in the rocking chair, casually walk over to the bake cupboard, take out a bag of course salt, pour a good portion into a soup bowl, and then with his winter mitts on, he would miraculously separate the stove pipe where two pieces joined, slip in the bowl of salt, and go back to reading the Ottawa Farm Journal. It worked every time, but Mother was sure that one time it wouldn’t, or that the flue fire would happen when we were fast asleep. Father assured her that as the night wore on the fire would go down in the Findlay Oval. But that did little to put Mother’s mind at ease, and, of

Mary Cook’s Memories BY MARY COOK

course, I carried the fear right upstairs to my bed which I shared with my sister Audrey. If Mother wasn’t worrying about the fire taking us all during the night, she was worried that we could easily freeze in our beds. The old log home, it seemed, was in a constant state of deep freeze. Even though Father, when the snow had come to stay, packed snow all around the foundation of the house, supposedly to keep out the drafts, it did little. Even the many braided rugs Mother put everywhere she could, including ones rolled up and put along the outside doors, we couldn’t keep out

the cold night air. When we sat around the kitchen table at night, each of us had our own cushion to rest our feet on, and crudely-made felt slippers and heavy socks helped little. However, the cold in the kitchen was nothing compared to the cold upstairs! There was no insulation in the peaked ceiling, and all winter, hoar frost appeared all along the boards. As soon as your feet hit the top step, day or night, you could see your breath. Even the contents of the chamber pot under our bed would be frozen in the morning. Mother tried to warm our

beds before we plunged between the feather mattress and the top ticking, by putting in hot bricks wrapped in The Renfrew Mercury, but they soon chilled and did nothing to keep our feet warm. It wasn’t unusual for me to wear my long underwear under my flannelette pyjamas. But it was the night noises of winter that really terrified me. Wildlife surrounded the farm. Wolves howled at night, and their eerie wails terrified me. I prayed that Father had secured the barn doors tightly, and that our sheep would be safe. If it wasn’t the wolves, it was the coyotes, which my brother Emerson said were one and the same as the wolves. He added to my worry by telling me he knew for a fact that they could wipe out a whole chicken coop in one night! And just as I tried to put

all my night fears behind me, there would be a thunderous crack! The old log house would shudder, and I would lay there waiting for another blast of frost that would cause the timbers to respond to the bitter cold. Even my sister Audrey assuring me that the noise wasn’t someone trying to break down our door did little to console me. Eventually I would fall asleep, having prayed loud and long that a higher being would keep us safe during the night; safe from going up in smoke in our beds, safe from neighbours discovering our frozen bodies when we didn’t show up at the Northcote School, and safe from the night creatures and sounds that surrounded our old log house in Renfrew County. And then in the morning, I would again see the wonders of winter, and all would once again be right in my world.

Program helps veterans transition back to civilian life EMC news - The only program of its kind in Canada that assists military veterans in their transition back to civilian life has received the full endorsement for national expansion from Royal Canadian Legion, along with

$500,000 spread over the next two years. Royal Canadian Legion dominion president Gordon Moore and Veterans Transition Network executive director Tim Laidler announced the partnership at Legion House.

Originally established in 1997 by the University of British Columbia as the Veterans Transition Program with funding from the Legion BC/ Yukon Command, the free program addresses invisible wounds of service personnel

to help them recover and regain a healthy, full life. “The University of British Columbia’s pilot Veterans Transition Program involved some 275 Veterans and has proven to decrease depression and trauma and boost self-es-

teem – three of the primary barriers to making a successful transition to civilian life,” said Moore. “Soldiers returning from service face complex issues and require multiple layers of support.

“We are grateful to the Legion for helping make the Veterans Transition Program available across Canada,” said Laidler, of the nonprofit organization formed at UBC that will administer the Veterans Transition Program.

New recreation facility moves to south Kanata Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - Kanata south will become the home of the 11th – and largest – Athletic Club facility in the province. The Athletic Club Group announced its intention to set up shop on Frank Nighbor Place, near Home Depot and Costco, on Tuesday, Jan. 15. The company also has gyms in Orléans and the Ottawa Train Yards shopping centre. “I’ve been after this for months now,” said Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley. “The people in Bridlewood especially, but all over Kanata south, want more recreation facilities.” The new location will be the largest Athletic Club facility in the province at 6,500 square metres, and will boast two saltwater pools – one for women only – as well as an onsite daycare and a multipurpose outdoor court with a two-lane sprint track. “There’s nothing in Kanata even close to it,” said Hubley. Construction on the $14million gym is expected to begin this spring with an opening date in 2014. “The Kanata project will be much nicer … and much larger than our existing clubs here,” said David Wu, managing partner of the Ottawa Athletic Club Group.

South Kanata will become the home of the 11th – and largest – Athletic Club facility in the province. The Athletic Club Group announced its intention to set up shop on Frank Nighbor Place, near Home Depot and Costco, on Jan. 15. Construction on the $14-million gym is expected to begin this spring with the facility to open by 2014. The organization will select a general contractor for the project within the next few weeks, he added. “We’ll definitely be looking to hire a lot of local people living in Kanata.” LONG TIME COMING

Residents of Hubley’s ward have long asked for additional pool and recreation facilities, he said.

With little space available, however, it was decided by a previous council that municipal funds would be used to build a recreation centre north of Highway 417. “People are still looking for a pool in Bridlewood but there are no lands available,” said Hubley, adding there are no municipal funds available to build that type of facility in his ward. Instead, the Athletic Club will fill that void. Asking for

March into the Royale Kanata this spring and

the private sector to invest in the community was the only way to get a pool, he said. “Because this is a private facility it’ll be high-end,” said Hubley, who visited the facilities located at the Trainyards and Orléans. “It’s a really sharp looking place. The whole package is there.” Margaret Kellaway, president of the Bridlewood Community Association, said she needed to learn more about

the facility before commenting on how it would affect Bridlewood residents. The new gym is in close proximity to both the Kanata Leisure Centre, which houses fitness facilities and a pool, and the Kanata Recreation Complex, which has two NHL-size rinks and the Bell Sensplex with its four rinks and indoor sports field. The Athletic Club, which has 10 other facilities across the province, got its start

in London, Ont. in 1997 by founders Alan Quesnel and Wu. The new Athletic Club fitness and aquatic facility will serve residents of the west end including the Bridlewood area, which has long asked the city for a community pool, said area councillor Allan Hubley. But according to Google Maps, the driving distance from the Eva James Memorial Community Centre – a cityrun facility in Bridlewood that offers programs such as fitness, sports, dance, preschool play, arts and gymnastics – to the Athletic Club’s future site is further than it is to the Kanata Leisure Centre, a municipally run aquatic facility. The following are driving distances and times from the Eva James Centre to other west end facilities: * Eva James Centre to the Athletic Club facility on Frank Nighbor Place: 6.9 kilometres, 12 minutes. * Eva James Centre to the Kanata Leisure Centre at 70 Aird Pl.: 5.9 kilometres, 10 minutes. * Eva James Centre to the Kanata Recreation Complex at 1 Walter Baker Pl.: 5.5 kilometres, 10 minutes. * Eva James Centre to the Goulbourn Recreation Complex at 1500 Shea Rd.: 7.1 kilometres, 11 minutes.

User fees on the rise at Parks Canada sites Canal lockage fees could triple Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - Parks Canada is looking for public feedback on a new fee structure that could greatly increase lockage fees on the Rideau Canal. On Jan. 11, the federal department announced a set of new user fees that would replace prices frozen since 2008. The proposed changes in-

clude standardized fees for mooring, facility rentals, programming and using the country’s canal systems. Currently, it costs 90-cents per foot for a boat to travel both ways through a lock on the Rideau Canal, or $1.60 per foot for a day pass. A seasonal pass is $8.80 per foot. The new fee structure requires boaters to buy individual tickets to travel through the locks.

Tickets cost 30-cents per foot, and boaters need at least two tickets to go through any lock in one direction. It takes two tickets to pass a low-elevation single lock and three to pass a single or multi-lock chamber at medium elevation. It will cost four tickets to pass through any multi-lock chamber at high elevation. That means owners of a 25foot boat would be charged $7.50 per ticket, costing be-

tween $15 and $30 each time they go through a lock station in any direction. A six-day pass now costs $7.20 per foot, up from $5.05. A seasonal pass, currently $8.80 per foot, will increase to $15 per foot. PASSES USEFUL

Parks Canada’s vice president of visitor experiences Andrew Campbell said boaters and commercial operators made it clear immediately that the seasonal and six-day passes were useful,

Venta Preparatory School Open House

and Parks Canada added them back to the proposed fee schedule after the initial announcement. Campbell said the proposed fee hikes are necessary to offset the $18.5 million taxpayers are shelling out every year just to operate boating services on Canada’s canals. Senator Jim Munson, however, said taxpayers should bear some burden for the treasures under Parks Canada’s charge, because they are for all Canadians to use. “Parks were created and built for Canadians to enjoy the beauty of their country,” he said. “And that meant all Canadians. As time has moved on, whether it is campground sites or golf courses in national parks, the prices are now out of the range of ordinary Canadians. “They’re making it difficult for ordinary Canadians to see our own country.” Munson said he understands and supports the need to charge a reasonable fee to use the sites, but said it has to be kept within reason – and if the shortfall comes out of the taxpayer’s pocket, so be it. “There are a lot of things that I’m paying for here as a taxpayer that I don’t get a benefit from,” he said. “These are public lands ... that should be accessible to the entire public.” Campbell said national historic sites will still only cost $10 per adult to visit – a minor fee compared to other leisure activities. “You can’t go to a movie for $10,” Campbell said. “For a great day out it’s hard to think of anything that’s a better value.” DETER CANADIANS

Munson said the proposed fees, particularly for canals, will deter Canadians from using them, not encourage them. “This is just going to drain the canal of boaters and thus will hurt our local economy,” said Munson, who feels so strongly about the waterway his Senate designation is listed as serving Ottawa-Rideau Canal. “It’s one thing to say it’s going to help out the department and its deficit, but that’s a simplistic approach. What does it do for the local economy from here to Kingston? This is a lifeline between two historic cities.” According to Parks Canada, the department has over 3,300 fees for services like park and site entry, camping, interpretive programs, boat lockage and facility rentals. Revenues are invested in the sites to help pay for the services and facilities that visitors use.

However, the expense of providing services to visitors continues to increase as a result of higher energy and other operational costs, a Parks Canada statement said. Currently, revenues from

canal lockage fees are equal to 9.6 per cent of the cost of operation. Comparatively, other Parks Canada sites recover about 35 per cent of their operational costs. Parks Canada is proposing that future fee adjustments take place in accordance with the consumer price index “in order to respond to annual inflationary operational costs.” “Most fees will be limited to an adjustment not exceeding the two-year cumulative percentage of the average consumer price index,” the statement said. This would occur in twoyear intervals thereafter, beginning in 2013.” A new fee structure would apply for recreational users beginning April 1, 2013. New fees for commercial operators would apply in April 2014. Full details can be found at parkscanada.gc.ca. Members of the public can email or mail their feedback to Parks Canada before Feb. 18. UPDATE

Parks Canada has added discount passes to a proposed new fee structure for the country’s canal systems, after a public backlash against potentially tripled lockage prices. The new seasonal pass would cost $15 per foot, up from the current $8.08 rate. The six-day pass would increase from $5.05 per foot to $7.20 per foot. The passes come in the wake of public outcry from boaters and local representatives who said the federal department’s proposed per-use payment system announced earlier in January would kill canal tourism. On Jan. 11, the federal department proposed new fees for national historic sites, parks and other properties in an effort to raise the amount of revenue available for maintenance and operation. PER-USE SYSTEM

Changes to the Rideau Canal’s lockage fees would have moved all users to a peruse payment system, with few options to buy discounted bulk options like the currently available seasonal and six-day passes. This would have raised the cost of a trip to Kingston and back - manageable on a six-day pass - from $126.25 to $975 for a 25-foot boat. A week later, Parks Canada reinstated the passes based on their higher proposed prices. “Traditional usage by seasonal pass holders has been 28 locks per year. Parks Canada has used this figure to determine the rates for the proposed seasonal and six-day passes,” a statement on the website said. “Those holding a season’s pass will be locking free of charge after 25 lock passages while six-day pass holders will be locking free after 12 lock passages.” A six-day pass will now cost $180 for a 25-foot boat.

New owners committed to variety of services at Island View Suites EMC news – Selling its share in the NHL Toronto Maple Leafs has given the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan the opportunity to invest elsewhere. One of the new focus areas is seniors living, and that has proved to be a plus for Arnprior’s Island View Retirement Suites. BayBridge Senior Living was started in 2010 by the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan as a vehicle to invest in the senior living industry. In September, the Arnprior retirement residence located at 30 Jack Cres. overlooking the Madawaska River became a member of BayBridge Senior Living. The Nautical Lands-BayBridge relationship is new but has great promise for growth, say officials of the company. BayBridge, Canadian owned and operated, has gained interests in 34 properties with several more in the process of being acquired. Baybridge’s stated mission is to provide world class stewardship of the relationships entrusted to it by its residents and their families and the company’s team members. The guiding values that unify the unique and special brand at BayBridge are: • treating each senior with the dignity and respect they deserve; • engaging family and friends; • using each interaction to build trust integrity and confidence; • celebrating the gift of human life each day; • demonstrating passion and joy in the service of seniors. Under the new ownership, Island View Suites will continue to offer a wide variety of spacious apartments and amenities to suit each individual’s personal preferences and needs. In addition, lsland View offers special rates for respite and guest suites for seniors who might want to “try out” the community and amenities before making a final decision. Seniors who live alone or need support or supervision for a few days or weeks following a hospital stay may find the furnished, full service convalescent suites just what “the doctor ordered” for a safe and secure recovery. For those requiring additional care and service, Island View Suites has many programs available up to and including assisted living services. As with any major change in an organization, the new administration’s main goal is to ensure the continued excellent quality of care and service for residents with no impact to their lives. To this end, BayBridge has several new staff members in key roles to introduce to the community. The main focus for general manager Iris Young is to increase the value of services to residents and community. The first step in the process was to hire the new executive chef Wendy Crego, who is already receiving rave reviews. Crego has 16 years experience in providing appealing and nutritious meals. Particular comments have been how excellent her dessert trifle and the breaded shrimp are. Crego, a world class baker, has also brought her famous recipe for cinnamon scones and these have already become a favorite of residents (and staff). Sharon Gray, as community relations co-ordinator, has joined the team to help lsland View “specialize in helping all seniors in our community find proper placement for their current and future needs,” says Island View in a release. “We are striving to be the resource for all seniors in this region. For those who we can serve, we offer unparalleled care and lifestyle thanks to our core values.” The staff of lsland View, some of whom have been there since the opening of the residence, have demonstrated dedication to residents and professionalism by the manner in which they have committed wholeheartedly to the changes and improvements to services that have already prompted many compliments, says the IslandView release. “Our service has always been great, but now we are striving to be even greater.” For more information about lsland Suites, contact Gray at 613-622-0002, ext. 1.

Avid snowmobiler El-Chantiry enjoys riding region’s trails David Johnston

DAVID JOHNSTON

City of Ottawa Ward 5 Coun. Eli El-Chantiry reminds snowmobilers to be respectful of others while out on the trails.

EMC news - Snowmobiling is a popular winter activity in Ontario. The province has over 34,000 kilometres of snowmobile trails, operated and maintained by the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC), its districts, member clubs and most importantly, countless volunteers. Locally in West Carleton, there are 240 kilometres of groomed trails maintained by the West Carleton Snowmobile Trails Association. It’s all in the name of having a good ride, according to Ian Torrey, WCSTA vice-president, communications. “This year has been going very well, but not without its challenges. The season started on a great note, with early heavy snowfall before Christmas. With the heavy wet snow came downed trees and low hanging branches on trails that had been brushed out in the fall, so volunteers had to

rally once again to get them opened up.” Then, just as the season was in full swing, the association suffered another setback. “On Dec. 31, just as we were getting the trails in shape, our newest groomer was destroyed by fire. We just managed to get the groomer replaced last week, so operators are working hard to get the trails back into shape. The cold weather is helping repair some of the damage done by the January thaw, and we are now optimistic that weather will cooperate, we’ll get some more snow, and continue with a great season.” Torrey is currently working on getting the stats on this years’ permit sales. “I do believe we are up slightly over last year in West Carleton, but that there has been a decline province wide due to the poor winter we had in many areas last year. West Carleton was very fortunate to have had excellent trails last year, considering the very limited snowfall, due in no small part to our groomer operators’ and volunteers’ diligence.” He said the association is most grateful “to the many landowners that allow us to cross their property each year.” To operate a snowmobile on the trails, all snowmobiles must have a valid OFSC trail permit displayed, insurance and registration. Drivers require a valid drivers license or snowmobile operators permit, which riders 12 and older may obtain through available snowmobile driver training sessions. Police, STOP officers, and OFSC Trail Patrol monitor the trails for riding without a valid permit, speeding, alcohol (zero tolerance),

and other traffic infractions. The cost of a permit for the remaining 2013 season is $260. Classic permits are also available for snowmobiles 15 years of age or older, at the price of $130. City of Ottawa Ward 5 Coun. Eli El-Chantiry is an avid snowmobiler and offers his comments on the sport. “With the snowmobile trails being well used this season, I would like to remind everyone (pedestrians and snowmobilers alike) to be respectful of your neighbours while out enjoying the trails. Snowmobilers should keep within respectful speed limits and slow down when passing pedestrians. Pedestrians should move to the side of the trail as much as possible to allow snowmobiles to pass by safely. Also, dogs need to leashed at all times while on the trails (as stipulated in The Animal Care and Control By-Law No. 2003-77, dogs are never allowed to run at large when off the dog owner’s property). “Most importantly, snowmobilers should remain alcohol/drug free when operating their machines. The police have noted that a large number of snowmobile accidents are alcohol related. The West Carleton Snowmobile Trails Association does a great job maintaining the trails so everyone can enjoy them. These trails should be useful for anyone that wants to get outside and enjoy winter, so let’s work together and keep our trails respectful and well used.” Trails are groomed as trail conditions require, and as weather conditions allow, which usually is about once a week.

Poker run, vintage rally among upcoming events Continued from Page 46

“This keeps our groomers and groomer operators busy with 240km of trail to cover - quite often grooming twice for double-wide trails in more heavily traveled areas,” said Ian Torrey. As the association is all volunteers, Torrey says there is a constant need for help to maintain the trails. “Even though the snow is here and our trails are open, we still need volunteers to help clear some trails or help with events. If clearing trails or trail marking and signage isn’t your thing, there are lots of other opportunities to get involved and meet new people. Organizers or staff for events such as our poker run, or people to help manage other club affairs are needed too.” Volunteering for the club is a great way to meet likeminded people, make friends – and is also a fun way for high school students to get their volunteer hours. Mike O’Reilly, a local vintage snowmobile enthusiast and club member, said, “After a couple of years of requesting, I got the “multi-use” trail signs (yield to skiers and walkers) and have put them up at all trail entrances. I am thrilled with this, as I am sure other community members (including my wife, who is an avid Torbolton Forest walker and skier) are.” POKER RUN FEB. 2

For an added blast on the trails, the WCSTA and Delta Global Logistics Inc. are putting on the 2013 Annual Charity Poker Run, in support of The Snowsuit Fund. “Come out and join us for a fun day of riding West Carleton trails, meeting new people, finishing off with dinner at the Kinburn community centre and some great prizes available to be won,” said Tor-

rey. The Poker Run registration is 10 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 2 with the run at 11 a.m. Start and finish is at the Kinburn Community Centre, 3045 Kinburn Side Rd. There will be plenty of parking on site for those who wish to trailer to and from the event. Cost is $15 entry fee, plus $5 per hand. There will be prizes for first, second, and third place as well as oldest and youngest riders. “We’ll be collecting donations of new and gently used winterwear (snowsuits, hats, mitts, boots) of all sizes.” Vintage Rally Feb. 17 If nostalgia holds a sentimental spot with you, be sure to check out the annual Vintage Snowmobile Rally Sunday, Feb. 17, starting from the Constance Bay legion branch 616.

Kanata duo wins big at business competition Carleton commerce students place first at Inter-Collegiate Business Competition

weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trained here at Carleton,â&#x20AC;? said Melekhovets, who will graduate this summer with a bachelor of commerce degree, specializing in accounting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just good to get some representation from Carleton at these competitions where weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re facing competition from international schools.â&#x20AC;? Carleton was one of six schools that won a spot at the competition after competing with more than 30 universities in a preliminary round, where teams were asked to write a paper about whether employees should be allowed to bring a personal device, such as a cellphone, into the workplace. The six finalists were given a different case study and five-and-a-half hours to prepare a 15-minute presentation on a resolution to the problem. The case study involved a newlyappointed chief information officer of a bank who is asked by the chief executive to use the power of data analytics to help the company better predict customer needs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The overriding issue is that within the organization there is no strategic direction for IT (information technology),â&#x20AC;? said Nichols. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The IT department is told to do projects on a

The choice was either jumping into analytics to make the CEO happy or coming up with a governance plan first, said the Nichols and Melekhovets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult for a couple of reasons, said Melekhovets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have to deal with that time pressure. You havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen the case beforehand.â&#x20AC;? The Carleton duo presented their winning solution to a panel of six judges â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all experienced businesspeople who face issues similar to the

case study on a regular basis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sound right theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be on you right away,â&#x20AC;? said Melekhovets. Nichols said Carleton commerce students will compete in at least three more business competitions this year, held in Halifax, Montreal and Spain. Last week, a team of 50 students from Carleton University headed to Halifax competing in the JDC Central business competition. As the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s academic captain,

Nichols wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t scheduled to compete in the event. After she graduates this year, Nichols plans to start work in May at Deloitte, a consulting firm that deals with accounting audits, IT consulting and business strategy consulting. Nichols attended Roland Michener Public School, W. Erskine Johnston Public School and West Carleton Secondary School. Melekhovets attended Katimavik Elementary School and Earl of March Secondary School.

Council on Aging of Ottawa gets new executive director

Your Children’s Aid 2013 is a very special year for the Children’s Aid Foundation of Ottawa. It marks the 25th anniversary of supporting children and youth in our community. Since 1988, the Foundation has provided enrichment and educational opportunities to the children and young adults in the care of the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa.

Eddie Rwema eddie.rwema@metroland.com

On January 23, 250 business and community leaders came together in the ballroom at the Chateau Laurier to learn more about the Foundation and to help celebrate our silver anniversary. A special thank you to our breakfast champion, the Honourable Vern White, Senator, for his tremendous assistance in making this celebration a real success. SUBMITTED

Louis Plourde, the new executive director of the Council on Aging of Ottawa. “I have always had a soft spot and an appreciation for old people and their contribution,” he said. “It is important for this group not to feel minimized by instead providing them with the kind of respect and recognition for their accomplishments and also engage them in contributing to the communities that they live in,” said Plourde. “They have tremendous amount of life experience, passion and energy required to continue to contribute in different ways.” In 2010, the Council on Aging of Ottawa celebrated 35 years of work dedicated to improving the well-being of seniors in Ottawa.

EMC news – The Council on Aging of Ottawa headquartered in Alta Vista has appointed a long time financial expert as its executive director. Louis Plourde took over the position with the council on Jan. 21. “It is a cause that I very much believe in and any contributions I can bring to move that cause forward and advance it makes me happy. I am delighted to be here,” said 54-year-old Plourde. The council is a non-profit advocacy and research organization that works to influence public policy and programs affecting Ottawa’s 156,000 seniors. It is run by a volunteer board, has four full-time and four part-time staff, and about 100 volunteers. Born and raised in Montreal, Plourde brings over 25-years of private sector experience in asset management, capital markets advisory and investment and venture capital funding to his new position. “It’s great a challenge and I am excited,” he said. Born and raised in Montreal, Plourde moved to Ottawa in 2010 and replaces Bernard Bouchard, a social worker and former long-term-care home administrator. “I hope I can help to instigate better financial controls, expenditures and budgets,” said Plourde. One of his priorities is to ensure the council manages to reach out to new sources of funding in order to fund its projects and initiatives. “I know what it is to raise money and I want to give the council the tools it requires to accomplish and further its mandate,” he said. Plourde said he hopes he can help stop negative age stereotypes directed towards the elderly. “I want to help fight an existing perception towards the elderly that they become a weight on society as opposed to a resource and I disagree with that,” he said. Working with seniors is something he is passionate about, said Plourde.
