Robert Dick seeks re-election to Admaston-Bromley council Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

News - Coun. Robert Dick has put his name forward for the Oct. 27 municipal election. A veteran of the AdmastonBromley political scene, Dick first threw his hat into the ring in 1997, and has been a part of township council ever since. Dick, 68, is a third generation farmer, “and a fourth is taking over,� he says. “Admaston-Bromley is a pretty good area to live in. My family’s all here, close by, grandkids,� Dick adds. He said the rural township mixed with agriculture has good

benefits for everybody. “I’d like to see that carry on. “There are a lot of things coming up. I’d like to be a part of the team that addresses some of the problems coming up,� Dick adds of the next four years. “It’s team work. Nobody’s going to solve anything by themselves.� Infrastructure has to be maintained, if not improved, but finding funds is tough, Dick points out. “There’s no magic solution. We have to try to be more efficient, and more resourceful to keep the municipality as good or better than the way it is.� “We need policing, but we need affordable policing to our needs,�

Dick adds. “The need of policing varies from area to area. “This comes back to the taxpayer. It’s a big item. There’s no negotiation on a local level,� Dick says. Recycling and waste management is always an issue, Dick said. “We just have to keep dealing with that. MOE (Ministry of the Environment) pretty well dictates which way the ship is going.� Dick is a believer in good and affordable recreation, which he said the municipality has. “We have the Douglas Recreation Complex, and the Admaston Recreation Complex. That’s affordable recreation to the people of the municipality.�

They also raise funds for what they need, he adds. Dick is big on economic development, which in AdmastonBromley, includes Renfrew Victoria Hospital and the Health Services Village. “We put money into that, but that’s good for business. I’m definitely in favour of that, or anything else that brings more industry,� he says. “The youth aren’t going to stay in this area, unless there is something to stay for, and that’s partly up to us in the municipality,� Dick adds. “If you let it go to the wayside, you’re going to the wayside,� Dick says.

Don Eady tells council he won’t seek re-election as mayor in Horton Township Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

News - It’ll be the end of an era on the Horton Township political scene. Mayor Don Eady informed council July 8 that this will be his final year at the helm. “I would like to announce that I will not be seeking re-election for the next term of Horton Township council,” Eady said. “I have the utmost respect for our township and the people who reside here,” he added. “Thank you to the people of Horton for letting me serve you for the past 14 years. It has certainly been a privilege to serve you as a councillor, and then your mayor, and I am honoured that you provided me with this opportunity.” Eady’s announcement continues a trend that will see a big change in the landscape in area communities Oct. 27. With Renfrew Mayor Bill Ringrose

not running and Greater Madawaska counterpart Peter Emon doing the same, it guarantees at least three new faces will take over the top seat in those municipalities. A fourth municipality may also be up for grabs. Even if undecided incumbent Raye-Anne Briscoe should run again in Admaston-Bromley, she’ll have to contend with current councillor Michael Donohue for the mayor’s position. “A lot of us around the table have certainly appreciated your leadership over the past three-and-a-half years,” Coun. Jamey Larone said to Eady. “There have been a lot of endeavours taking place under your leadership and guidance. I can say this for all of us around the table, you certainly have taken a leadership role. Horton’s been served well by you as mayor.” Eady became the first elected mayor of Horton in 2010, although former reeve Bob Johnston was named

mayor midway through his term. “I think, after being around 14 years, I need a change of pace,” Eady said. “For my own personal reasons, I need kind of a new lease on life. I haven’t made decisions on what I’m going to do yet, but I have a couple of opportunities. I will take advantage of one or the other. Everybody serves their time, and I just think it’s time to move on. “I have enjoyed my 14 years here immensely,” the outgoing mayor added. “Council is very, very interesting. We don’t always agree on everything, but that’s what kind of makes it interesting, and we carry forward from there. It’s been a good run, a very good run.” Eady said, in September, he will update council’s accomplishments over the last four years. “As of today, we still have a job to PETER CLARK/METROLAND carry out,” Eady said of his remain- Coun. Jamey Larone, right, thanks outgoing mayor Don Eady for his ing three months as Horton mayor. many years of contribution to the council scene in Horton Township.

Her goal is to complete the 50 km event in honour of her grandmother, father and mother-in-law, who lost their own battles with cancer.

“When I was diagnosed the second time, I just had a feeling inside that I was going to be OK, that I was going to make it through,” she said.

Now 41 and completely recovered, Serena works at Carleton University as a Senior Programmer Analyst. She is a first responder with the Canadian Ski Patrol and Priority One. She was the first person with a disability to join the ski patrol in Canada.

“It just seemed to appear for no reason,” said Serena. Through X-rays and a bone scan, doctors diagnosed her with osteosarcoma. “I think my parents were more afraid than I was,” Serena remembered. “I didn’t think I was going to die.” She was admitted to a children’s hospital in Halifax, where she received chemotherapy and blood transfusions and had her left leg amputated just above the knee. The treatments were harsh, she said, but didn’t stop the cancer from returning. Just one year later, she was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in her left lung.

Riding the Rideau in honour of Dad By Tracey Tong Peter Croft has always been close to his father, Russell.

613-433-3993 • 459 Albert St., Renfrew ON K7V 1V8 info@hospicerenfrew.ca

Despite living 4,000 miles apart – with Peter in Ottawa and Russell in Edinburgh, Scotland – the two men share an interest in fishing, and manage a visit every couple of years. Peter even followed in the footsteps of his architectural technologist dad, becoming an architect in the UK at 25, just before emigrating to Ottawa with his Canadian wife in 2001. In 2009, Russell was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. Fortunately, the disease was caught very early and was highly treatable.

The dreaded disease returned again before last Christmas. This time, the relapse took a huge toll on the formerly strong man. “The first two fights with cancer wore him down,” Peter said. ‘This time, there were stays at the hospital for a bunch of complications,” Peter said. “His bowel ruptured, and he got very close to death’s door.”

His father, now 68, is “very frail” and housebound, and doctors have told his family that the cancer is beyond cure. “We are obviously devastated,” Peter said of his tightknit family. Searching for a way to make a difference here at home in Ottawa, Peter signed up for Ride the Rideau, The Ottawa Hospital Foundation’s signature event. The event, which has raised more than $6.45 million for cancer research over the past four years, will mark its fifth year on Saturday, September 6.

Speed-related road deaths more than double from last year: OPP News - Highway deaths with speed as a causal factor have doubled in 2014 compared to the same period last year, according to recent data released by the Ontario Provincial Police. According to the data, speed-related deaths are currently in the lead when compared to collision fatalities in which distracted or impaired driving were causal factors. Of the 113 people who have been killed on OPP-patrolled roads so far this year (as of June 15), speed was a factor in 33 of those deaths. Distracted driving is in second place at 24 fatalities and impaired driving related deaths are at 12. “In 2013 our officers laid nearly 300,000 speeding charges across the province,” said Chief Supt. Don Bell. “Almost 3,000 of those charges involved the motorist driving 50 km/ h or more over the posted speed – one of the most aggressive, reckless and dangerous driving behaviours on our roads. “The motoring public has the right to be safe and it is an unacceptable injustice to all

safe drivers and innocent passengers when aggressive drivers display this type of behaviour and endanger everyone.” Every driver is in control of their behaviour and the OPP acknowledges that the majority of people who operate a vehicle, boat or off-road vehicle take this responsibility seriously. Because of the irresponsible few who do not, the OPP is counting on members of the public to take charge of the situation when they are with someone who is driving unsafely and placing themselves and other people at risk of death or serious injury. Never feel guilty about asking them to stop, encourage them to drive safely and remind them that the safety of other people is at stake. This is one more way to raise awareness and influence positive driving behaviour among motorists, boaters and off-roaders. Also, if you suspect that someone is operating a motor vehicle, boat or ORV while impaired, call 911. In doing so, you are playing a very important role in helping the OPP save lives.

EDITORIAL

Storm clouds brewing Opinion - Severe weather is becoming commonplace. And when something becomes common, some people become complacent. Ho-hum. Just another weather warning. But think again. From extreme temperatures and drought to high winds and punishing snowstorms, adverse weather carries a high price tag. Yet for some obscure reason, there are those who still choose to deny climate change. But one day society will be forced to face the folly of its years of ignorant bliss and neglect. For some people, there is no life beyond their tiny existence. They don’t care that future generations will pay a steep price indeed. Ontario emergency management says atmo-

spheric hazards can pose a significant threat to public safety, health, the environment, property and the economy. Municipalities are encouraged to develop a Severe Weather Emergency Plan but not required to do so since it exceeds the requirements of the current legislated emergency response program. But that doesn’t mean individual citizens can’t be proactive. Learn about the threats, be prepared, heed warnings when they are issued, help your neighbours, and demand the federal government take the issue of climate change seriously and not restrict its response to after-the-fact aerial tours of devastated communities.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Proud of my hometown and care provided in time of need To the editor:

Opinion-we live in a wonderful town where community members join together to raise money for a child, family, charity or local hospital to name a few. We live in a town where we take pride in our hospital and the youth in our area that are developing leadership skills through fundraising causes and humanitarian trips to third world countries. We live in a town where the elderly are cared for no matter where they are being served, and I have lived to tell. On Wednesday, March 19, I was returning from a visit at my daughter’s home and the weather was beginning to get nasty. I dropped off the few items I had brought home and returned outside to cover my windshield from the snow and freezing rain that was beginning to fall. While covering my windshield, my foot caught a

piece of ice and I fell down beside my car. I knew immediately that I had broken something but I also knew I had to get help. It was dark outside and living in the country I knew that it may take some time and effort to be found. I had my flashlight with me so I began waving it around but of course no one was around to see it. I decided that I needed to try to drag myself inside to call for help. I made it as far as my deck and knew that I could go no further, my leg would not lift the distance it would need to clear the step. I decided to lie on the deck and hope that someone would come. I lay there for quite some time when I heard a noise. Someone was leaving my neighbour’s house and so I knew I needed to call for help. I yelled out, “Get Shelley, I need help,� over and over. And I am forever grateful that Tyler Daley heard

my call and ran inside to get Shelley my neighbour. Shelley came over and called 911 and my family. The ambulance arrived and they took such good care of me. They quickly assessed that I probably had a broken hip and I was suffering from hypothermia. They were so kind and handled me with such care. At this point the weather had gotten much worse so the ambulance driver drove with care and maneuvered the bumpy 132/Lisgar roads in order to get me to hospital safely and minimize my pain. Once I was taken in to hospital, the emergency staff quickly took over and Dr. Duggan treated me with the right balance of compassion and humour. I spent the night in emergency where they treated me for hypothermia with their state of the art equipment, managed my pain and organized my trip to Ottawa where I would undergo sur-

gery to repair my broken hip. Once my surgery was done, I was eager to get back to my hometown hospital and their wonderful hospitality. Dr. Strader, as the emergency doctor, organized the transfer and soon after my surgery, I was returning to RVH. I was admitted to RVH on third floor where I would spend the next four weeks and undergo physiotherapy. Yolanda and her team worked tirelessly to get me back on my feet. The nursing staff on third floor made me feel like I was at home and their friendly chats kept my spirits up. Special thanks to Dr. Collins for his daily visits and care, and his better half Allison for her advice and support. I would also like to recognize the wonderful home care from CCAC and the staff that helped me continue my journey to healing at home.

That is why I believe we live in the best town; where people care for people and do their jobs with pride. Once again a special thank you to Shelley, Danielle, Nicholas and Richard for continued care of your “old� neighbour, Tyler for saving me that night; my family and I are forever grateful, the paramedics who cared for me that night, Dr. Duggan, Dr. Strader and Dr. Collins and Allison for your continued professional care and amazing bedside manner, the RVH staff in emergency and on third floor for your friendly manner and kind assistance, Yolanda and the physio team who helped me get back on my feet, CCAC for my home care and finally my family and friends for their visits, kind words and support. Renfrew is an amazing place to live!! With warmest regards, Shirley Regan Renfrew

Great job by recreation department Editor’s note: Last week the Mercury ran a letter which was critical of the recreation department’s maintenance of Haramis Park. The letter below arrived after last week’s paper was published. The writer’s position has changed. To the editor:

Opinion -First of all I would like to apologize for not getting this letter in sooner than today (Wednesday, July 9). Last month I sent in a letter to the editor about the condition of the shrub garden at Haramis Park that the Renfrew Horticultural Society built many years ago. Since sending in the letter to the editor and before it got published in the July 9 edition of the Renfrew Mercury, the garden has had a facelift and looks great. The facelift was done by Renfrew Parks and Recreation after sitting so long without one. Great job! I apologize for any confusion my letter to the editor has caused. Susan Siroski Renfrew

What’s the plan? To the editor:

Opinion - On May 20 I was in Sears to pick up a new stove and struck up a conversation with a man from White Lake who was purchasing a television. He thought Renfrew was a nice town but he said, and I quote, “Renfrew has the worst roads I’ve ever seen, just awful.� So I guess I’m not the only person who has noticed the mess we call streets and roads in this town. The basic infrastructure of Renfrew, the things people use and need every day, is slowly falling apart. This is a huge problem, one that must be addressed, but it seems nobody wants to talk about it. Does anyone on council or any candidates for mayor and council have a plan to address this issue? If they do, I’d like to hear it, as would many other residents. How will we pay for all the work

that needs to be done without raising taxes and fees sky-high? We cannot and should not depend on provincial or federal money to solve our problems. We need to put in place an account, where savings found in other areas of municipal governance are deposited, and these moneys are used only for repairing and upgrading our roads, underground pipes, etc. Of course, this is not what some politicians want to do with our money. After all, you can’t put a plaque on a sewer pipe, but after years of wasted time and many thousands of wasted dollars on studies for pie-in-the-sky projects (swimming pool anyone?) we need to get down to business with a mayor and council that will concentrate on improving the town of Renfrew in a fiscally responsible way.

OPP committed to public safety

TOWNSHIP OF McNAB/BRAESIDE NOTICE OF APPLICATION AND PUBLIC MEETING In the matter of Sections 17 and 22 of the Planning Act, the Township of McNab/Braeside hereby gives NOTICE OF THE FOLLOWING:

To the editor:

Opinion - In recent days, media coverage of certain events has been critical of the response provided by the Renfrew Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP). As the Detachment Commander of Renfrew Detachment I want to assure everyone that the Ontario Provincial Police is committed to public safety and delivering proactive and innovative policing in partnership with our emergency services partners and our communities. Public safety is the core focus of the Ontario Provincial Police and at no time will we, or have we, placed lives at risk. The OPP is committed to working with our communities in partnership with other emergency response agencies, to ensure we have safe communities and a secure Ontario. The issues that have been recently covered in the media are being addressed through the appropriate processes. Sincerely,

Stan Russell Renfrew

i) Application to amend the OďŹƒcial Plan of the Township of McNab/Braeside. ii) A public meeting regarding an amendment to the OďŹƒcial Plan of the Township of McNab/Braeside.

Subject Lands: All lands within the Township of McNab/Braeside. Public Meeting: A public meeting to inform the public of the proposed oďŹƒcial plan amendments will be held on August 12, 2014, at 6:00 p.m. at the municipal oďŹƒce of the Township of McNab/Braeside. Proposed OďŹƒcial Plan Amendment The purpose of OďŹƒcial Plan Amendment No. 5 is to add a new General Development Policy to Section 14.0 of the OďŹƒcial Plan that generally supports the establishment of secondary residential units, namely garden suites, as well as, secondary dwelling units within existing dwellings. The policy will set out general criteria that such units must meet and would apply to all lands within the Township. It is proposed however, that requests for such uses would still require a site-speciďŹ c zoning by-law amendment so that Council may consider the setting, factors and constraints to ensure that the additional residential unit is appropriate for the speciďŹ c site. Subsection 16.8 –Temporary Uses would also be updated to permit “granny suitesâ€? for a period of 20 years instead of 10. Additional information regarding the OďŹƒcial Plan amendment is available for inspection at the Township of McNab/ Braeside municipal oďŹƒce during regular oďŹƒce hours. If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting or make written submissions to the Township of McNab/Braeside before the proposed OďŹƒcial Plan amendment is adopted by the Township, the person or public body is not entitled to appeal the decision of the County of Renfrew (approval authority), to the Ontario Municipal Board.

If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting, or make written submissions to the Township of McNab/Braeside before the proposed OďŹƒcial Plan amendment is adopted by the Township, the person or public body may not be added as a party to the hearing of an appeal before the Ontario Municipal Board unless, in the opinion of the Board, there are reasonable grounds to add the person or the public body as a party.

Valley Animal Rescue announces change in place to meet this responsibility. The Ministry of Agriculture may want this information in order to track these animals in case of possible disease outbreak. It is our position however, that this is not necessary as all our animals are fully vetted including the following: an initial health check; treatment of any acute and/or chronic health problems; treatment for any internal or external parasites; spay or neuter surgery; insertion of microchip; full vaccinations and ongoing monitoring of health. Medical care is ongoing while in our foster program and our adoption contracts stipulate that the same level of medical care must be continued while in the new owner’s care. We maintain full and permanent records for each animal that passes through our program and, as they are all microchipped, they are always traceable. We go above and beyond in the care of our animals making them the least likely to be a disease or health risk to the public or other animals. We do have some concerns about what other use the Ministry of Agriculture will have for this information and who else they may share it with. In the last two years Valley Animal Rescue has rescued, rehabilitated and provided full medical care and training for 142 abandoned animals.

We have then found well screened forever homes matched to the specific needs of each animal. Our commitment to these animals does not end with their adoption as our contracts make provision for the animal to be returned to us if the adoptive family, for any reason, finds they are unable to properly care for their pet. This level of care and commitment is expensive and time-consuming. We believe that we have provided a high level of service without a single dime of support from the Town of Renfrew or any other government agency. All of our work is funded solely by donations, fundraising events and our own pockets. We have cost the

Town of Renfrew absolutely nothing and have provided a valuable service to the community. Unfortunately, as of this writing, we see no way to continue helping Renfrew’s abandoned and homeless animals. We will continue to work with other area pounds as other townships have placed no such restrictions on our work, and we will continue to try our best, to find a way around this problem. As it is now, our hands are tied. If you believe in the work we are doing, now would be a good time to show your support. With deep regret,

did much to improve working conditions. But power corrupts and this is evident by the steps taken in this election to discredit the opposition and by dictating to their members how they should vote, using fear of losing their jobs as a big stick. Ontario will not get out of the hole it has dug for itself until it gets a leader strong enough to face down the unions. The status quo will only lead to more bureaucrats who are earning fat salaries and contributing little or nothing to society. Perhaps a miracle, in the form of another Margaret Thatcher, will happen. If not, then, as Rev. Rose says, God help us. Yours, etc.

Opinion - Re: Last provincial vote letter Rev. Rose Leclaire. I have read and re-read the abovementioned letter and I completely agree with her sentiments. She has the guts to say publicly what many others are thinking but are too scared of reprisals to speak out. How democratic is that? Ontario, once a thriving province is now a “have not” and is having a hard time in obtaining the necessary credit to help Wynne put in to action her profligate schemes. In the words of a friend who lives in one of the “have” provinces, why should anyone pour money into Ontario when all it has done for the last ten years is squander money (yours and mine) on one shady deal after another and bend the knee to unions. Unions, once, were necessary and

Opinion - It is with great regret and sadness that I must inform you of a change in Valley Animal Rescue’s operations. We will no longer be able to rescue abandoned animals from the Renfrew pound. We were informed by our lawyer that the Town of Renfrew had been advised by the Ministry of Agriculture not to sign ownership of abandoned animals from the pound over to us. Without ownership of the animals, Valley Animal Rescue cannot adopt them out into new homes. This change is not coming from the pound itself but from the Town of Renfrew under advisement of Agriculture Canada. The only way the Town of Renfrew will consider releasing animals to us, is if we provide the names and addresses of all adoptive families. We cannot do this as we guarantee confidentiality to all our adopters, fosters and volunteers as per the Privacy Act. Our mutual full and final release documents release the Town and pound of any and all liability and we assume full responsibility for the animals in our care. We are a fully insured registered charity and operate in a very professional and transparent manner. We just don’t see any reason for concern for the Town as we accept all responsibility and have programs

Opinion – On Thursday, June 26 at approximately 11 p.m., I heard an automobile stop in front of our driveway. Not giving it much thought, I failed to look out to see who it might be. In the morning, however, I realized what it was all about. Someone had walked in our driveway, removed a round, green, glazed flower pot

fast was excellent, and the hall was packed with so many red and white garbed people I couldn’t turn around in my seat when some of the attendant politicians addressed the crowd. But one of their comments was as irritating as an ant at a picnic: they spoke of how funds were raised to make the Hor-

ton Community Centre “the best in Renfrew County” and that the feds had even given up some of “their” money. Just a reminder to the kind folks who represent us. It is not “their” money; it is our’s!

Gallant seeks investigation into federally-regulated Ontario smart meters Sta

News - Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant has requested federal Minister of Industry James Moore initiate an investigation into Ontario Hydro One’s smart meters. An investigation into the billing practices of Hydro One is now being conducted by the Ombudsman of

Ontario. In a news release, Gallant conďŹ rmed she has contacted Moore, in his capacity as the Minister responsible for Measurement Canada and the OfďŹ ce of Consumer Affairs, on behalf of the 6,961 registered complaints with the Ombudsman of Ontario. “SpeciďŹ cally, I have requested an Industry Canada Special Investiga-

tion into the use and operation of ‘smart meters’ by Hydro One. As you are aware, electricity meters are regulated by the federal government,� wrote Gallant. “I have been inundated with complaints from Ontario Hydro One customers. While the provincial government is responsible for the crippling high electricity rates that have hollowed out the manufacturing

sector in Ontario, Industry Canada regulates equipment such as gasoline pumps, gas and electricity meters,â€? she stated. She further stated: “My ofďŹ ce has conďŹ rmed with the OfďŹ ce of the Ontario Ombudsman that the scope of its investigation is conďŹ ned to billing practices, not the operation of the so-called smart meters. Hydro One has admitted it has had to replace

thousands of smart meters. With the requirement to accurately measure a customer’s energy consumption, and the ability of the new hydro billing system to interact with the smart meters, an Industry Canada investigation would assist the Ombudsman in his efforts. That OfďŹ ce has conďŹ rmed its interest in a smart meter investigation, and has pledged full co-operation to help ďŹ x this problem.â€?

MP announces Aug. 1 is deadline to apply for federal accessibility funds Excerpts of news releases from the office of Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant. Community -A call for proposals for projects through the Enabling Accessibility Fund (EAF) -Community Accessibility Stream has been launched by the federal government. “The Enabling Accessibility Fund is helping all members of our community, regardless of their mobility, to enjoy full access and enjoyment to local establishments including the Burnstown United Church,â€? said RenfrewNipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant. “I am looking forward to seeing how this newest round of funding will help our communities to ensure all their facilities are fully accessible to the public.â€? The application deadline is Aug. 1, 2014. Eligible applicants can receive contributions of up to $50,000 for their project. Under this stream of the EAF, at least 35 per cent of the funding required for the project must come from a source other than the federal government. This particular intake is for projects that improve accessibility, such as renovating, retroďŹ tting or constructing community facilities, retroďŹ tting

community-based transportation or making information and communications technologies more accessible. The EAF supports community-based projects across Canada that improve accessibility, remove barriers, and enable Canadians with disabilities to participate in and contribute to their communities. The EAF was established in 2008 to help fund small projects in communities across Canada to improve physical accessibility for persons with disabilities. If you are interested in applying or you would like more information on eligibility or on how to apply, visit cherylgallant.com, and click on ‘Enabling Accessibility’ under the ‘Programs’ tab. MP Gallant has also conďŹ rmed introduction of Bill C-618, the Foreign Lobbying Transparency Act. “I introduced this legislation to protect local jobs,â€? said Gallant. “We saw the dangers of large sums of money being used by special interest groups to inuence the last Ontario Provincial election. This legislation is also about protecting democracy in Canada. The legislation is all about following the dollar, in this case to foreign capitals with

person; “Canadians have been made very aware that foreigners have been secretly funding single or special interest groups whose lobbying efforts do not enjoy the support of regular hard-working Canadians. Many of these groups could not exist without foreign funding For example, in my riding of Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke, thousands of hard-working Canadians depend on their livelihood from the working forest. Misinformation jeopardizes those jobs. Canadians have a right to know the sources of funding for those groups that seek to take away jobs from Canadians. “The Foreign Lobbying Transparency Act would achieve ďŹ nancial transparency and improved accountability through the public reporting of payments made by foreigners to lobbyists,â€? said Gallant.

very un-Canadian agendas. Any time there is a national discussion, Canadians have a right to know whose voice is being heard and why. “The purpose of this legislation is to provide for greater ďŹ nancial transparency in how lobbyists are being funded for their activities. One of the areas that the Commission of Inquiry into the Sponsorship Program and Advertising Activities looked into was government relations, commonly referred to as lobbying.

St. John Ambulance reaches out through Therapy Dog program Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

News - St. John Ambulance is known for providing medical care for the public, but that care now includes its Therapy Dog program. “Basically, it’s nothing more complicated or fancy than the handler or owner of a dog taking the dog to a retirement residence or nursing home or, in some cases, a hospital, and providing some contact with the residents … just for the calming influence of an animal and a nonjudgmental creature,” explained regional Therapy Dog program mentor Grant MacDonald to

Renfrew council May 26. Jenn Sutcliffe of Dacre and her puggle Copper (a pug and beagle cross) spend an hour or two Wednesday evenings at Bonnechere Manor interacting with residents in the Renfrew longterm care facility. The program existed in other parts of Canada for several years, but only began in Renfrew County in August 2013. One of the first Renfrew locations introduced to Therapy Dog was Chartwell-Quail Creek Retirement Residence. St. John’s Ambulance’s free program now covers about 30 volunteer handlers and their

dogs in Renfrew County. Handlers come from communities that include Eganville, Renfrew, Pembroke, Petawawa, Golden Lake and Arnprior. PILOT PROJECT AT RCI

Therapy Dog has also entered the educational system, with a pilot project for youth at Renfrew Collegiate Institute. That program got underway in late May with Madeline Dunlop and Sadie, her golden retriever. The program will continue through this school year, with expectations it will re-

sume in September. The pilot project is being coordinated by teacher Anna Daber and school support counsellors Glen Mulvihill and Colleen Sadler. Basically, the idea is to focus on issues such as stress management and empathy for others, said Sadler. The co-ordinator of Renfrew County’s Therapy Dog program is Rachel Weikman of Petawawa who says handlers are asked to participate by making one community visit with their dog each week. For more program details, call 613-2814050.

Township bumps up development charges Sherry Haaima Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

Jenn Sutcliffe, dog Copper and St. John Ambulance dog therapy mentor Grant MacDonald address Renfrew council. 14 The Renfrew Mercury - Thursday, July 17, 2014

News – Development charges are on the rise in McNab-Braeside. General development charges for residential on a single detached dwelling, the township’s primary lot development fee, are now $3,763, up from $3,152. For a single attached dwelling, the charge is $3,441, for an apartment $2,867 and for a mobile home $2,724. Commercial/ industrial charges are now $5.04 per square metre of gross floor area. Properties in the Jed Creek/Campbell Drain area will be charged an extra lot development fee, which (based on the singledetached rate) decreased from $311 to $243. The township passed the new development charges bylaw June 17, following the results of a study prepared by Jp2g Consultants Inc. Council reviewed the report and considered comments at a public meeting held before the regular session of council. In the time between when the old bylaw expired and the new one came into effect, there were several charges on which the township wasn’t able to collect or refunds were given. The old lot development fee expired May 19, 2014, explained treasurer Angela Lochtie. “The township was unable to charge a fee from this period until the adoption of the new rate on June 17. Only a few building permits were issued during this interim time period.”

OPG IS CONDUCTING RESEARCH ON THE OTTAWA RIVER TO PROTECT ONTARIO’S BIODIVERSITY. Ontario Power Generation is conducting research downstream of OPG’s Chenaux and Chats Falls hydroelectric generating stations. This research, which is being carried out by Kleinschmidt Associates, is in support of OPG’s ongoing American eel migration studies and the enhancement of Ontario’s lake sturgeon population. Kleinschmidt’s boat may be in close proximity to the shoreline as it completes day and night-time fishing abundance studies and shoreline inspections. This yearly research is being conducted under permits from the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and in accordance with O. Reg. 242/08 (as amended by O. Reg. 176/13) under the Ontario Endangered Species Act. Work will continue until the end of October. Please visit www.opg.com to learn more about OPG’s biodiversity programs.

Dr. Kaboom (also known as Magic Dave) will be performing 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. He has been delighting audiences of all ages for many years with his blend of circus, magic skills, and juggling, with just a touch

of tomfoolery. Dr. Kaboom has performed at fairs and professional sporting events, the Ottawa Buskers Festival, and appeared on Parliament Hill for Canada Day. He has held memberships in the Canadian Association of Magicians, the International Jugglers Association, Professional Street Performers Association, and various other professional entertainer organizations. I hope you’ll join us for this fun family variety show combining circus

skills, illusion and magic, including a live bunny, doves, audience participation, levitation, rola bola, diabolo, juggling, and funambulism. Admission will be by donation – in other words, pay what you want to. All proceeds will go towards future programming at the Greater Madawaska Public Library. For further information, call the library at 613-752-2317, email us at gmpl@bellnet.ca, or drop by 4984 Calabogie Road in Calabogie.

Community - Celebrations were in order July 10 as Greater Madawaska Public Library launched its Early Literacy Resource Centre. On hand for the event were Angela Kuehl, early literacy specialist for the County of Renfrew, Margaret MacKenzie, president of the Calabogie Women’s Institute, Patricia Ripmeester and Terrance Gnesko of the library board, as well as children and parents. The Federation of Ontario Public Libraries (FOPL) has been investing in research on behalf of public libraries regarding the impact preschool story times has on early literacy skills. The FOPL report from November 2013 shows that public library story times improve school readiness, vocabulary development, motivation to read, narrative awareness, phonological awareness, and print awareness. Public libraries are the ideal setting for pre-school story time as the public library is a place for all people. They have a long history of offering a non-judgemental, self-paced, discovery-based environment for individuals and families It is the latest report from FOPL that inspired me to seek an Early Literacy local partnership with the Calabogie Women’s Institute. The education of children is very important to the W.I. and I felt that they were the ideal group to approach. President Margaret MacKenzie took my request for funding to the local members. I’m happy to report that they came on board and provided me with a cheque for $200 to purchase the Early Literacy unit itself and twelve bins, as well as the resources to fill each bin. Resources in the bins are suitable

INSIDE

for infants and children right up to ages 3 and up. They include activities such as matching colour pieces to their respective words, fitting puzzle pieces into various shapes, building and stacking blocks, and flash cards. The immediate hit on launch day was the Bright Starts soft stacking blocks suitable for infants 3 months and up. We had fun watching the little ones crawl to the resource centre, and in no time at all they had the soft blocks out of the bin. I would also like to take this opportunity to promote the Baby Book Bag program, also funded by the Calabogie Women’s Institute. Each year, children born within the current year receive a free handpainted book bag and book. We are currently collecting names of children born between December 2013 and November 2014. The Baby Book Bags will be presented in late November 2014. If you reside in Greater Madawaska Township and would like to receive a free bag for your baby, please contact the library. Many thanks to the Calabogie Women’s Institute for their support! Our regular story time runs from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. every Thursday. Children of all ages are welcome to attend. We’ve had parents bring children as young as a few weeks old, and there’s a baby change table for your convenience. We welcome grandparents, caregivers, and siblings to come along as well. For more information call the library at 613-752-2317, email gmpl@ bellnet.ca, or drop by 4984 Calabogie Road. We’re open Tuesdays from 1 to 7 p.m. and Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

MEAGAN’S MASSAGE THERAPY

is Moving

peter.clark@metroland.com

TO 80 JIM BARR RD COME AUGUST.

‘As of August 1st, Meagan’s Massage Therapy will no longer be operating from 72 Prince Ave W. She will be solely offering massages at her home office location at 80 Jim Barr Rd. Please call (613) 432-5883 or visit www.vagaro.com to book an appointment. Outstanding Gift Certificates will be honoured at the new location. ‘Meagan is accepting new clients. She works evenings as well as Saturdays for your convenience.

Tyson Edwards and mom Courtney Landreau try their luck at Canadian trivia at the It’s an Honour! exhibit on Railway Avenue. Yukon, Northern Alberta and British Columbia. On Sept. 16, 2013 Governor General of Canada David Johnston, of-

ficially launched the exhibit at Henry Wise Wood Senior High School, in Calgary. Following Renfrew, the

exhibit made its next stop at Sault Ste. Marie. The trek will end next year back in British Columbia.

Riding for a Cancer Cure By Tracey Tong In late 2012, Tom Robertson was diagnosed with stage 4 bilateral squamous cell carcinoma in his neck. Treatment started in early 2013.

Helping their peers Arleigh Prince, left, and Alyssa Droppo are hoping to ease child hunger. With that in mind, the two girls collected peanut-free snacks and cereal for the Renfrew and District Food Bank during a night at Renfrew minor soccer, as well as from a booth during Canada Day festivities at Ma-Te-Way Park. Renfrew Pizzeria and Robillard Hearing Centres also supported the cause as drop-off points. Aside from the food donations, Arleigh and Alyssa also raised $326.20 in cash for the food bank.

Cancer fighting heroes aren’t built overnight. Bit by bit, he built up his strength, one kilometre at a time. Tom signed for the 50 km ride in the 2013 edition of Ride the Rideau as a recovery goal “as well as small payback for the great care and treatment I received at The Ottawa Hospital,” he said. Ride the Rideau is The Ottawa Hospital Foundation’s signature event. The event, which has raised more than $6.45 million for cancer research over the past

four years, will mark its fifth year on Saturday, September 6. This year, Tom bought a bike with a few more gears and has signed up for the 100 km ride. To learn more about Ride the Rideau, visit www.ridetherideau. ca.

“In between diagnosis and treatment, I saw this cool singlespeed, belt-drive bike at the store and thought that it would be a good idea to make it a goal to ride it after treatment,” said Tom. “But when I was finished all the radiation and chemo, I had difficulty even walking 50 feet, let alone ride a bike.”

Community - It’s an Honour!, a travelling exhibit mounted in a specially-designed 1,000-sq.-foot vehicle, showcases stories of great Canadians who have been recognized for their extraordinary achievements with national honours such as the Order of Canada, Decorations for Bravery and Military Valour Decorations. For two years, it is making stops at schools, community centres, special events and small towns to connect with and inspire visitors of all ages. Renfrew had the honour of being among those small-town stops July 4 and 5. At the end of July, the wheelchair accessible caravan will complete its first of two years on the road. “I said I miss travelling. Be careful what you wish for,” quipped road manager Francois Grenier. “It’s a nice exhibit. We are very proud of it,” Grenier added. “We just spent four days in Ottawa at Rideau Hall.” Admission to the exhibit was free and there was a guest book to sign. The tour began last August in Regina, and has travelled throughout Saskatchewan, the Northwest Territories,

OTTAWA RIVER WATERFRONT

2014 a year of solemn remembrance for many John (Jack) O’Nanskie of Renfrew received 20 powerful before-and-after images from Carole Hol, the daughter of friend Doreen Epton in England. The images were created by Getty photographer Peter Macdiarmid and Reuters photographer Chris Helgren who gathered archive pictures from the 1944 invasion and photographed the same locations as they appear today. June 6, 2014 marked the 70th anniversary of the DDay Allied Invasion of Europe in World War Two. When O’Nanskie was 16 years old he went overseas to war and stayed until he was 20. The photograph at right shows the French-armoured column passing through the small French town of St. Mere Eglise during the Allied invasion on May 7, 2014. On the right of the image, a family walks the same ground today. Behind is a painting of O’Nanskie as a young soldier. O’Nanskie has done significant travel over the years. Now 88 years old, his livingroom walls are adorned with service medals and awards. Upon his return home, O’Nanskie worked 40 years at Haley Industries.

Deanna Joe saw a robin saw a robin fluffing its feathers and wallowing in a patch of dust in their yard. She thought this unusual but although most birds like to clean their feathers in a bird bath some like to do the cleaning with dust. Dusting as it is called helps realign the feathers, reduce dandruff and remove excess oil. It also helps to control mites, lice and other feather parasites. Anting is another method birds use to care for their feathers. A bird, blue jays in particular, will catch an ant and rub it through their feathers. They will also wriggle themselves into an ant hill and let the ants crawl through their feathers. Ants contain formic acid, a chemical that is distasteful to bird parasites. LOST

Jo-Anne and Bill Wendt had a racing pigeon drop in to their feeder in Ferguslea this week. It has been feeding on sunflower seed and will feed from Jo-Anne’s hand. Pigeon Fanciers hold races during the summer

months and sometimes a bird will become exhausted and come down in an area where they can find food. These birds are tolerant of people and can often be handled. If they are fed a ration of mixed grain they will regain their breast muscles and be able to fly to their home loft.

EASTERN PHOEBES NEST

BALD EAGLE

A bald eagle flew a few metres above Tom Airth’s kayak while he was paddling on Golden Lake. He said it was a shocker to have the huge bird pass so close but it also gave him an opportunity to get a real good look at a bald eagle. Eagles will be gathering food for their young and they will be more aggressive in their search as the young birds increase their demands for more and more food. By the time they are on their own they will be larger than the adults. However, they soon lose weight because they are not as adept at catching food as their parents were. Enjoy your birding.

Hi, Ila and Jim: We found an immature eastern phoebe on the upper deck. It may have hit a window and stunned itself. We have a hawk around which may have frightened it. After letting my guests see it I put it in the potted parsley on the deck and it had flown away several hours later. Our phoebes had their second clutch, first clutch fledged in early June. Mary Humphries, Black Donald Lake Thank you for the email, Mary. If you have nesting phoebes the nest should be taken down and burned after the young fledge. Phoebes are collectors of nest parasites. If the nest is used a second and possibly a third time the parasites collect and will eventually kill the young birds.

Lifestyle - Glynn Davies made every effort to save the life of an immature red-tailed hawk. He noticed a bird feeding on a road kill along a local roadway and it appeared to have an injury of some kind. He later saw a similar bird sitting on a fence post and it was flying without any obvious problem and figured that the hawk had recovered and able to hunt for food. This was not the case. There were two young hawks. Glynn was able to capture the injured bird without incident. He called us and we suggested that he take the bird to the Wild Bird Care Centre on Moodie Drive in Nepean. The caregivers at the centre found that the bird was indeed an immature red-tailed hawk and it had a broken wing. They estimated that the bird had sustained the injury about two weeks before and the wound had become seriously infected. There was little they could do and the young hawk would not survive. Glynn said that he felt that the injured bird was being fed by either its parents, whom he had not seen, or the healthy sibling he had seen on the post. It would not have survived for so long without help. Although he did not see the injured hawk being fed by another bird the possibility was there. Juvenile birds of first broods of waxwings and finches will feed the young of later broods. Does this happen with birds of prey?

Those we love remain with us, for love itself lives on. Cherished memories never fade, because a loved one is gone. Those we love can never be, more than a thought apart. For as long as there is a memory, they’ll live on in our heart.

Our family has grown a lot since you left. We speak of you often. Those who you never had a chance to meet know you through us. Your memory is a constant reminder of how precious life is. Thank you for blessing us with your kind loving spirit.

In loving memory, Mom & Frank, Byron & Sharon, Brian & Kathy, your nieces & nephews, your Stacey & Crozier families.

Forever in our hearts, Love your Parents, Step-Parents, Sisters, Brothers, Nieces, Nephews, Great-Niece and Great-Nephew

In Loving Memory of

Alma Bennett, A

We knew that terrible evening, God was going to call your name, In life we loved you dearly, In death we do the same.

Jean Marie Prinn In loving memory of my dear wife Jean Marie who passed away July 27, 2013 I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one, I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when day is done. I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways, Of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days. I’d like the tears of those who grieve to dry before the sun, Of happy memories that I leave behind when day is done.

It broke our hearts to lose you, You did not go alone. For part of us went with you The day God called you home. You left us beautiful memories, Your love is still our guide, And though we cannot see you, You are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same, But as God calls us one by one, The chain will link again. It is so hard to believe that one year has passed since you left us. . . Missing you like crazy!

Love Mark & children

Alma Bennett July 27, 1942 - July 14, 2013 Mom i sit here waiting for your call, but it doesn’t come. I look outside to see you, and you’re not there. I miss your love and laughter that we shared, and memories that will last a lifetime. I think of you and tears fall, but turn into smiles. I look at pictures but it’s not the same, as looking at your beautiful face. It’s hard not to receive your advice, but i know you are telling me from above. I get my strength from you to carry on. A mothers love and advice is the best thing to get, until it is not given no more, I hear you from above with the whispering of the wind, and the rays of the sun tells me you are smiling at us down here. I miss you very much everyday, but i know you are at peace. I will always love you TODAY, TOMORROW and always. You are in my heart and thoughts daily. Love you forever your daughter Lynn & Ben, granddaughter Sheena & Brian, Rebecca & Rob and great granddaughter Lyndsey Alma Grant. My tears will dry some day but until then I will cry in silence for you.

Loving memories never die As years roll on and days pass by In our hearts a memory is kept Of one we loved And will never forget. Lovingly Remembered; Tim, Brenda, Amanda, Matt & Brandon

IN MEMORIAM

POWELL, Harry Harry Powell: athlete, outdoorsman, gardener, people person and priceless Ottawa Valley character died on July 6, 2014. He laughed and joked with his sister-in-law, Rose Costello, and his brother-in-law, Father Mike Costello minutes before he died. He ended his life as he lived it: fully and with laughter right to the last punch line. Harry was hilarious. His sense of humour and quick wit never let him down and he was never at a loss for words. His jokes and tales entertained everyone around him. Harry had a positive, fighter spirit that kept him determined to beat the odds. And beat them he did. Harry was born in Mansfield, just outside Arnprior, on April 15, 1921. He lived his full 93 years in the Arnprior area beside the Ottawa and Madawaska Rivers. Harry was a nature lover who was happiest near water. His dad, the late Richard Powell, was a cook in a lumber camp. His mother, Rebecca Harten, was the cook and “Mamma” to Oblate Novitiates in the building on the Ottawa River where the Galilee Centre is now located. Harry came by his love of good cooking honestly. Harry had four siblings, three of whom died before him: Anna Mae (Bernie McMullen), Dick (Beryl), and Eddie (Charlotte). His sister, Arvella (Jack Taylor), was his dear friend and they spent several years sharing a table and many memories at the Arnprior Villa. Harry married Marjorie Costello in 1950 and they had Christine (Brian Cavan) and Philip (Diane Blunt) who live in Ottawa. Harry has four grandchildren, Neil and Kate Cavan and Beth and Drew Powell and many nieces and nephews who so enjoyed his sense of humour. He shared 17 years of marriage with Viola Sullivan. Harry worked for 45 years at Kenwood Mills/Huyck Canada, an Arnprior wool blanket and felt-producing factory. Harry served in the Royal Canadian Air Force in World War II in British Columbia on coastal patrol. He had a terrible accident at Kenwood in 1964, almost losing his right arm in a carding machine. Harry’s incredible stamina and determination pushed him through many surgeries to graft skin and bone from his own body to make a new arm. Doctors at the Civic Hospital pioneered a number of grafting techniques on Harry’s arm, and despite all odds, Harry surpassed every limitation doctors placed on what he’d be able to do with that badly damaged limb. Harry had a number of close calls with cars, ATVs and chain saws. With each accident, he proved again and again that he was strong as an ox and stubborn as a bull overcoming pain, healing and beating any injury or illness that tried to keep him down. He learned to drive in 1969 after buying a piece of land on the Ottawa River near Sheenboro and Fort William, Quebec. The cottage and properties there were his pride and joy. He also owned a cottage near Calabogie on the Madawaska River. Harry was happiest by water, puttering in the bush and making anything grow. He prided himself on the size of his woodpile and he loved to build huge fires in any wood stove or fireplace he owned. Harry was a star football player at Arnprior District High School but never cared much for book learning. Harry loved to work – the more physical, the better. His dear friend and mentor, Alex Staye, put him to work as a bouncer at the Mayfair Dance Hall and Harry used the boxing skills he learned in the air force to keep the peace at post-war dances throughout the Ottawa Valley. In the mid-1960s he began a decades-long service bouncing community and high school dances in Arnprior. Generations of young people knew Harry as a fair but strict lad when it came to drinking, drugs or disturbing the peace at a party. Harry loved his food. He grew it, hunted it, fished it and never missed a meal if he could help it. He was known at the Villa and the Grove as “two scoops Harry”; kitchen staff made sure he got a double helping of mashed potatoes. A day without his “puhdatos” was a day without sunshine. And how Harry loved the sun. He rose with it and delighted in giving everyone around him a rough time about what time they were up. He was an early riser and hard worker, but also a legendary napper. Harry could nod off at the drop of a hat and wake refreshed and ready to give’er again. Harry’s family always said he had two speeds: high and off. Harry was nothing without his food and good sleep. Harry was fond of telling people to get out and live life to the fullest. He often told his children, grandchildren and any other audience that you shouldn’t wait for the “golden years” to travel and enjoy life. His last decade threw him many health challenges, but he was a trooper who faced diabetes, shingles and congestive heart failure with a fierce spirit and a determination to “beat that, too”. Harry and his family appreciate the loving care he received at the Arnprior Villa, his home for over 10 years. He received excellent care from the staff at The Grove in the last five months of his life. Drs. Susanna McCarthy, Cathy Greenough and the various doctors and nurses Harry had in his many trips to emergency and the Arnprior Hospital were outstanding in their care. Harry was always grateful for the help and support he received and loved to tease and tell jokes to his caregivers. Any interaction with Harry was punctuated by his quick wit and engaging storytelling. He was a funny man who never failed to make those around him smile and laugh. Harry’s easy smile and positive attitude will long be remembered by all who were lucky enough to know him. One of Harry’s favourite expressions was, “Never say whoa on a hill.” He never did.

Community - Despite long working hours, demanding schedules and busy families, every Monday from September to June, members of the Renfrew Toastmasters Club took the time to gather in the back room of the Rocky Mountain House to share stories and hone their communication skills. That time and commitment to both their club and fellow members earned the Renfrew group Distinguished Club status from Toastmasters International in recognition of its high achievements. The Distinguished Club Program is an annual program that consists of 10 goals a club must achieve. Progress reports are posted on the Toastmasters International website and at the end of the year the goals are evaluated and calculated. Goals include awards based on achievements by individual club members, completed training and new member growth. A Distinguished Club ribbon will be attached to the Renfrew banner in recognition of the groups’ achievements which were celebrated with members, family and friends at the End of the Year Awards Dinner and Party held at Rocky Mountain House on June 23 – which also saw the swearing-in of the new executive. Elected were president Fran Watson, vice-president of education Maria Thompson, vice-president of membership Jim Butterworth, and treasurer and past president Lynne Kobus. Other notable achievements of the year included the launch of a new biannual club newsletter with the first edition published in May of this year and distributed both online and to area and district Clubs. In special recognition of her achievements over the year, member Tracy Franken was named Toastmaster of the Year, and she thanked her fellow

completing manuals and for her dedication to the Renfrew Club. While the club’s official season may be over, special events are planned over the summer including Poetry in the Park, Backyard BBQ or Mini Golf evening meetings. Everyone is welcome to attend as a guest and enjoy great speeches while discovering how Toastmasters can improve

“The prognosis didn’t look good,” remembered Stephen. “It wasn’t caught early. Everyone expected the worst.” Everyone except for Stephen’s oncologist, Dr. David Stewart, who worked at The Ottawa Hospital, where Stephen was treated. “I had a great oncologist,” said Stephen. “He reminded me of Clark Kent, and I thought, ‘I have Superman in my corner, so I’m going to be OK.” He underwent surgery, 12 weeks of chemotherapy and another extensive surgery. Complications landed him in ICU after going into respiratory arrest where once again the medical staff pulled him through and gave him the best of care. Fast forward many years and Stephen, who works with his wife Shirley on The Hanlon Real Estate Team at Kellar Williams in Mississauga, has just blown out 50 candles on his birthday cake. He’s an avid fitness fan

and has both a Boston Marathon and an Ironman under his belt. He’s also a proud dad of Jacob (19) and Sean (21). When his brother, Ottawa Hospital Research Institute Chief Operating Officer Robert Hanlon approached Stephen about raising funds for the Hospital where he had been treated nearly 30 years earlier, Stephen eagerly agreed.

New walking group traces the tracks Ray Parchelo

Blok back in action This weekend, July 19 and 20, the racing career of Beachburg’s Nathan Blok will reach another highlight as he competes behind the wheel of the John Cummiskey Racing (JCR) car No. 33 at Ontario’s most prestigious open-wheel racing event of the year. The annual Toronto Indy returns to the tight street-course at Exhibition Place on the shores of Lake Ontario. Blok’s first outing with the new JCR team was at the historic Indianapolis Speedway in May as part of the USF2000 supporting series to the first road race for Indy Cars. The 20-year-old engineering student is shown at the inaugural Grand Prix of Indianapolis.

42 The Renfrew Mercury - Thursday, July 17, 2014

Sports - A walking group – a century and a half in the making. That’s how the new Kick and Push Pedestrian Society bills itself. Two things from the late 19th century got them rolling. The Kingston and Pembroke Railway, or The K and P, began its line from Kingston to gain access to logging and mining to the north. Plagued by rough landscape and competition, the line made it only as far as Renfrew. The slowness of service provided its nickname, the “Kick and Push”. Abandoned in 1977, it was converted to recreational use. Now, instead of train service, it offers an exceptional, high quality walking trail from Renfrew to North Lanark. Also in the 1800s, hockey, baseball and basketball were yet to be invented and the most popular sporting event was “pedestrianism”, a sport which saw the finest walkers in the world engaged in short and long distance walking, some for fun, some for high stakes racing. Now, the Kick and Push Pedestrian Society (KAPPS) encourages a

new pedestrianism, middle distance recreational walking, along those same heritage rail lines. KAPPS is an Upper Ottawa Valley walking group that is “tracing the tracks, one step at a time”. Once a month they explore the high quality walking trails around the Town of Renfrew. Their preferred trails are the K and P Trail from Renfrew to Flower Station and the Millennium Trail from Renfrew to Arnprior. They specialize in middle distance walks, that is, 7-10 miles/1015 kilometres. Walking at a brisk pace, they’ll pull into their destination after three hours on the tracks. The trails are flat and level, with little to no grade. Walks are suitable for all abilities and almost entirely through forested areas. Pole and pole-less walkers are welcome, as are polite leashed dogs, and energetic parents with equally energetic kids. They prefer walking and don’t encourage sharing their walks with bikes. Each month, on the fourth Sunday morning, from 9 a.m.to around noon, they explore a different section of the trails. They meet at a convenient inter-

section to leave vehicles, locating a vehicle at either end of the route to avoid backtracking. Following the walk, all walkers are invited to continue the event with a Brag’n Brunch at a local restaurant. The Brag’n part means one guest will present a short “brag” on a special walk they have taken. There is no registration and no cost, just show up by 9 a.m, The walk starts promptly at 9.00 am, rain or shine. All you need is water/snacks, proper footwear and clothing, and bug spray and sunscreen as needed. They ask that you leave all your electronics (cell phones, GPS, tablets, etc.) at home. The first KAPPS walk will pull out of the station on July 27 at 9 a.m. at 220 Carswell St.; intersection of Ross St and Renfrew Avenue (the Adult High School site), heading along the trail to the Pucker Street intersection (about 12 km or 2.5 hours walking). For more information and to volunteer for the trail crew, contact Ray Parchelo, 613-433-9405 or ray@padakun.com. For group and monthly walk information, follow them at http:// www.padakun.com/39-2/

All stars compete in Perth tournament Anne Lefebvre Renfrew Minor Baseball

Sports - The Renfrew Phantoms Minor Select team participated in the highly competitive Del Harper Tournament in Perth July 4-5. This tournament is an annual affair, and attracts minor baseball teams from Ottawa as well as teams from outlying areas such as Cornwall and Pembroke. This is the first

year in some time that Renfrew has been able to enter an all-star team, which speaks to the increasing popularity of baseball in the town. The Phantoms faced Ottawa South on Friday evening, and put together a great ball game. Although they went down 132, they gave their opponents a run for their money. Saturday morning, the Phantoms came up against the East Nepean Eagles. This

is a well-known club that has sent teams to the Little League World Series in previous years, but the Phantoms were not deterred. They quickly snatched a 5-0 lead, surprising the Eagles and forcing them to bring on their defensive game. The Eagles came back to eat up the deficit and claim victory, but the Phantoms took pride in matching this talented team for a few innings. The Phantomsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; final game

was against the Perth Royals. They took a while to get in the game, allowing the Royals to gain a 6-0 lead. But the Phantoms rallied, tightening up their infield, stealing bases â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including home! â&#x20AC;&#x201C; forcing the Royals into the backseat. With the score at 63, a last-inning rush at the bats brought the Phantoms to an 8-6 victory: a great way to end the tournament. The minor-level house league baseball season concluded July 12 when the Renfrew Royals and the Renfrew Phantoms house played host to Valley teams in the year-end tournament. After this, the Renfrew Phantoms Select team will begin play-downs to vie for a spot in the Ontario Little League Minor Provincial Tournament beginning at the end of July.

â&#x20AC;˘ 1st David Sulpher and Fran Bonner; 2nd Shirley Taylor and Bev Ziegel; 3rd Bev Kobus and Eric Brown. It was another great day for slams, with four successfully bid and made.

Several hands had unusual compositions, which made them difficult to bid. Board 22, in particular, reigned supreme. Every contract, whether played by north-south or east west, went down. This is proof evident that some days you just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make a bid! Of special note, in honour of our clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s six-month anniversary, we will hold a club championship day on Wednesday, July 23. We hope to see as many members out for this event as possible! Duplicate bridge begins at 1 p.m. each Wednesday. Everyone is welcome. Partners are provided for those who come early.

Special Olympics team captures softball gold at Vancouver Games Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

Sports - The Renfrew Millionaires softball team followed up last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s provincial gold medal triumph by capturing gold at the Special Olympics National Summer Games last week

in Vancouver. The Ontario representative Millionaires outlasted Manitoba 15-14 Saturday to win the championship of the B division. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of the hundreds of games Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve coached, this is by far, easily the most exciting game,â&#x20AC;? coach Frank Belanger said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be more proud of them.â&#x20AC;? Renfrew is normally pooled in the C division, but they were moved up to B, and pulled out a number of thrilling, closely-contested wins in the week-long tournament. The championship gives the Millionaires a chance to qualify for the world championships

Raise the Roof golf a great success as $22,000 raised Berny and Elizabeth Couture

Sports - The third annual Raise the Roof golf tournament at the Calabogie Highlands Resort exceeded all expectations of organizer Joanne Leclaire. GREAT SUPPORT

This event was conceived as a way to raise money for a roof over Calabogieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newly paved skating rink. Months before the tee-off, the event was fully subscribed by more than 144 players eager to join in the fun. The golf gods clearly took this tournament to heart, providing ideal weather, with clear skies, light winds and a magnetic anomaly (or some other heavenly distraction) to ensure that at least one of each foursomeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drives found its way to a reasonable lie for the follow-on shot. Sponsors were present at every hole with prizes to encourage players to plan their best approach and focus their considerable skills on how best to achieve the stated aim, be it deuce, longest shot, closest to the centre line or closest to the pin. In most cases, this proved to be more entertaining than accurate, but, at the end of the day, some lucky players were declared winners. Amazingly, each of the winners generously donated their winnings to this important community project.

As much as everyone enjoyed the fun on the fairways and greens, moving into the club house proved to be even more entertaining, with an excellent steak and chicken dinner that prepared all the participants for the highly anticipated silent and live auctions. Emcee Chris Fleming ensured that everybody was well aware of the great array of spectacular prizes from our generous sponsors, the Lions Club 50-50 draw, and the various contest results. TOP-NOTCH PRIZES

The real fun began when auctioneer Blake Corbin took control of the mike to present the highly soughtafter items that our sponsors donated for this special event â&#x20AC;&#x201C; hockey tickets, Calabogie Motorsports Park and other resort packages, jerseys autographed by Canadiens goalie Carey Price, Winnipeg Jets defenceman Grant Clitsome (who also attended the event), and the entire Habs hockey team, ďŹ reworks, and several more great items. Special thanks to Calabogie Highlands, the sponsors and donors, and to the many, many volunteers whose selďŹ&#x201A;ess efforts made this event such a success. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tournament raised a stunning $22,000 for the cause. Thanks to all of this support, Calabogie is now on track to raise the roof over the rink this summer!

Bishop makes it Ladies action aplenty at the Renfrew Golf Club three 800-metre race wins in a row Kim Vandewouw

From the Ladies Tee

Sports - Once again, there is a lot to report from the ladies tee at the Renfrew Golf Club. Unfortunately, Ladies Day was rained out June 24.

Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

CANADA DAY GOLF

Sports - Melissa Bishop is making competitors take notice. The Eganville middle-distance runner has won her past three 800-metre events in as many weeks. Bishop clocked a time of 2:03.23 at the Canadian track and field championship in Moncton, N.B. June 29 to earn her second straight national championship. Last week, victories came two-fold. At the International Track Classic in Victoria, B.C. July 8, Bishop narrowly missed breaking her own personal best time. Bishop raced through the 800 metres in an impressive 1:59.70, just 1/100th of a second shy of her best 1:59.69. Bishop fell off her own time a little bit by posting a 2:00.06 in the Harry Jerome International Track Classic at Burnaby’s Swangard Stadium, July 10, but it was still good enough to win her third race in a row. Bishop is one of only four Canadian women to eclipse the coveted two-minute barrier. One of the others, North Vancouver’s Jessica Smith, was second in 2:02.08 in last Thursday’s Jerome Classic. Canadian 800-metre record holder Diane Cummins (1:58.39), who is now 40, recently announced her retirement after a very successful season and career. As for Bishop, she is preparing for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland. There, she will again attempt to challenge’s Cummins’ Canadian record.

On July 1, many women enjoyed Canada Day by participating in Ladies Day which was sponsored by Mid-Town Flooring. Winners were: • A flight: 1st: A.J. White; 2nd: Alexa Legris; 3rd: Gayle Miller; 4th: Mary Ann Abrams.

• B flight: 1st: Arlene Smith; 2nd: Christine O’Hara; 3rd: Cheryl Campbell; 4th: Colleen Sheehan. • C flight: 1st: June Larose; 2nd: Sue O’Neil; 3rd: Sue Ringrose; 4th: Bev Savicky. On July 12, the ladies enjoyed the beautiful weather and competed in the third tournament of the season. Our thanks to Donohue Art and Frame, who sponsored this gross score 18-hole tournament. Many low scores were posted: • A flight: 1st low gross: Anne MacNeil 80; 2nd: Lisa Smith 83; 3rd: Cindy Lacroix 84; 4th: Margaret Agnew 84. • B flight 1st: Christine O’Hara

94; 2nd: Lois Butson 95; 3rd: Kim Vandewouw 97; 4th: Cheryl Campbell 98. • C flight - 1st: Bonnie Eady 105; 2nd: Lesley Murray 105; 3rd: Lee Sharpe 108; 4th: Pat Lee 109. On July 8 the weather held out for ladies who participated in Ladies Day early. However, those who wanted to play late afternoon were not as fortunate. We thank sponsor The Grape Room. • A flight: 1st: Kim McDonald; 2nd: Gayle Miller; 3rd: A.J. White; 4th: Mary Peer. • B flight: 1st: Alexa Legris; 2nd: Dorothy Sharpe; 3rd: Colleen Sheehan; 4th: Julie Bonsor.

• C flight: 1st: Bev Savicky; 2nd: Pat Lee; 3rd: Bev Mau; 4th: Lesley Murray. ST. PRACTISE DAY

Our next fun night, St, Practise Day will be held on Tuesday Aug. 19. As well, the club is hosting a Ryder Cup event on Monday, Sept. 8. This is a two-person team with a total handicap maximum of 50. The first six holes are a best ball, the next six holes are a scramble and the final six holes are alternate shots. So mark it on your calendar as it will be a lot of fun.

Seventh Gil Read Memorial Fastpitch in Carp July 25-27 Jeff Maguire

Sports - The ‘Gil Read Memorial Fastpitch Tournament’ has become a highlight on the summer sports calendar in Ottawa and Eastern Ontario. Players and fans alike are looking forward to the seventh annual edition in Carp July 25-27. Chris Read, the son of the late Gil Read and his cousin Al Read are once again heading the committee which organizes the three-day tournament. Unlike last year, when the event reached its maximum 12 teams, this year was more challenging in terms of confirming clubs to compete. “Some years are like this. Summer is such a busy time and some people have other activities to attend. So a few teams who usually play in our tournament are

unavailable this year,” Chris explains. “But we now have 10 teams confirmed. It will be a very good competition and we urge fastpitch fans to come out and enjoy some excellent games on the final weekend of this

month,” he adds. One team who will be back is last year’s runners-up, the Elkland Thunderbellys from Pennsylvania. They lost to Sharon (Ontario) Lake Simcoe Lightning in the 2013 tournament championship game.

Although Sharon Lightning is unavailable this time Thunderbellys, from the small village of Elkland in northcentral Pennsylvania, will be competing for a third straight year. See CARP, page 47

“The Elkland people really enjoy our tournament and it is great to have them back again. After last year they are the early favourites,” Chris stresses. Most of the teams and players involved this year are from either the Greater Ottawa Fastball League (GOFL) or other men’s leagues in the district. Leading the Eastern Ontario entries will be Micksburg Twins, from the Pembroke area, the defending GOFL champions. This season Twins are in the middle of the pack in the seven-team loop, but the standings are very close at present. The other GOFL teams who have signed on for the competition are Stittsville 56ers, Kanata Pirates and local favourites, Fitzroy Harbour West Carleton Electric. Stittsville and Kanata are currently battling for first place in the league. Also penciled in are a local tournament team, the Ottawa Valley A’s, comprised of players from West Carleton. They will be joined by Ottawa Broker 4 Tickets from the Glen Cairn Men’s Fastball League along with an allstar entry from the Trend Arlington Men’s Fastball League in Ottawa.

Chantel Hisko invites parents of babies and young children to drop into Little Lovies at 198 Raglan St.

Community - If you have a newborn, or young kids, Little Lovies at 198 Raglan St. S. on Renfrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main street is worth a visit. Owner Chantel Hisko specializes in hand-made baby products for sale. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I opened on May 5, which is also my birthday,â&#x20AC;? Hisko said with a smile. Hisko has been making and selling various baby items online for five years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew I wanted to have a store, eventually,â&#x20AC;? she said. When the store became available, Hisko jumped at the opportunity. About half of the items in the store are hand-made, including many by Hisko. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a handful of other very, very talented women who have brought their items in to sell, including my mother, and a few of my friends,â&#x20AC;? Hisko said. There are also a number of other items for sale. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I try to get a lot of unique stuff, things that people would normally

       

         

have to go to the city to buy; save them a trip, and gas money.â&#x20AC;? Hisko takes a lot of custom requests and does much of her sewing in the back of the store. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do a lot of personalized things like baby blankets. I put their name on the back, and things like that,â&#x20AC;? she said. She said although open for just a couple of months, she has a good customer base. Hisko carries clothing, toys, accessories and baby needs. While she says the majority of her products are geared toward baby, she definitely also has things for toddlers and small children. There is constantly new items being put on the shelves, Hisko adds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had requests for christening gowns, which I never had, but (now) I have some on the way,â&#x20AC;? she adds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had about five people come in and ask.â&#x20AC;? Little Lovies is open Monday to Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Hisko can also be reached at mysunshinedesigns.etsy.com or 613-433-8800.

The current Lansdowne construction project employs the latest technology to accomplish new heights in creative design, engineering and energy conservation. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the ďŹ rst time that the site has drawn attention. Innovative construction techniques used in the construction of the Civic Centre actually were a tourist attraction. In the summer of 1966, the large beams required for the $8.5M Civic Centre began arriving at Lansdowne Park. The immense beams, fabricated by the Dominion Bridge Company in Montreal, were too large to transport by truck so they were ďŹ&#x201A;oated up the Ottawa River and down the Rideau Canal by barge. As there was only one beam per barge, the ďŹ&#x201A;otilla attracted the attention of onlookers as the beams arrived and were put into place.

TD Place at Lansdowne

n DDavid Johnston

A new era in Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entertainment legaacy is unfolding. The revitalized stadium at Lansdowne, nnow known as TD Place, re-opens Friday JJuly 18 when CFL Football returns with the Ottawa REDBLACKS hosting the Toronto O Argonauts. A The event kicks off a year of new beginnnings at Lansdowne, starting with the staddium. TD Place is a year-round entertainment venue, hosting large outdoor concerts and performances in the stadium, and mediumsized shows and events in the arena. With a colourful history dating back to the 19th century, TD Place at Lansdowne has witnessed CFL and Grey Cup drama, FIFA Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s World Cup games, FIFA U-20 World Cup games, as well as notable performances by the Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Supertramp and the Tragically Hip. The stadium at TD Place has been transformed into a 24,000-seat venue, highlighted by a striking and innovative new south stand veil made of Alaskan yellow cedar, a completely refurbished north stand, all-new playing surface and high tech scoreboards with in-stadium signage and services. The CFL Ottawa REDBLACKS and NASL Ottawa Fury FC will both play their inaugural 2014 seasons at the stadium at TD Place. The grounds surrounding TD Place stadium and arena have taken on a new life as an 18-acre urban park. With old favourites, like the Aberdeen Pavilion and Horticulture Building, and exciting new attractions such as the Water Plaza, Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Garden and Skating Court, Lansdowne is a four-season playground for everyone. Lansdowne Park opens August 16 with a full day of family-focused fun.

Lansdowne ready to kick off new era in entertainment

DAVID JOHNSTON

TD Place Stadium at Lansdowne Park dential. Since the beginning the redevelopment of Lansdowne has been in keeping with its historic role as a gathering place for the community while modernizing its facilities and uses for todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s residents. A key goal of the Lansdowne Partnership Plan is to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) CertiďŹ cation. This is a voluntary, consensus-based standard for developing high-performance sustainable buildings, assessed over six categories covering sustainability, water, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, indoor environmental quality and innovation. A critical element of certiďŹ cation is accessibility. From the start, the Lansdowne construction and design team followed the principles of Universal Design to provide the highest level of accessibility possible and creating areas and spaces that can be used by everyone, including those with and without disabilities. One example is that there are few changes in grade levels. Having sidewalks and roadways at the same level makes it easier for everyone to move around. It also

makes it safer to cross streets for people with walkers, wheelchairs and scooters. The sidewalks and roads at the site have bumps and grit in certain areas to let people with disabilities know that they are approaching another roadway or sidewalk. All benches, water fountains, and other structures have been placed away from each other to allow plenty of room for people to pass by. Taxis and Para Transpo are able to drop people off close to the stadium and seating at the site has been designed to allow for everyone to sit together with plenty of space. Accessible washrooms have also been added to the football stadium.

ing Championships, and performances by leading acts from around the world. It has been transformed with all-new premium seating, state-of-the-art scoreboard and digital signage. The Ontario Hockey Leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ottawa 67â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s return home to TD Place in September. The plan to revitalize Lansdowne started in 2009, in a series of initiatives approved by Ottawa Council. Council voted to proceed with the redevelopment of Lansdowne June 28, 2010 through a partnership of the City of Ottawa and the Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group. Lansdowne includes the refurbished stadium and former Civic Centre, a large urban park as well as a mixed-use area featuring 360,000 square feet of retail shops and services, ofďŹ ces and residences. The retail is slated to open in the fall and the residences should be ready for occupancy in spring 2015. In creating the Lansdowne project, the City of Ottawa established principals that included pursuing a higher standard of design and sustainability for new elements in the redevelopment. The ďŹ nal design, landscape and architectural plans were reviewed by a panel of experts and City representatives to ensure integration of all areas of the site Workers spread some of the more than 100,000 cubic metres of cement that retail, park, public space, stadium and resihas been poured across the site to build the infrastructure of Lansdowne.

Leave the car bike or walk the paths of Lansdowne

Building Lansdowne Dedicated team creates the new Lansdowne David Johnston

Ottawa Councillor David Chernushenko lead a cycling rally July 6 from the Glebe Community Centre to promote the opening of Lansdowne as a destination for Ottawa cyclists, both for major events and for everyday use. DAVID JOHNSTON

Lansdowne is designed to be cycling friendly. Getting to Lansdowne on foot or by bike has never been easier and a new series of pathways make navigating the site simple and safe from all across the city. Many pathways have been added during Lansdowne’s rehabilitation. These pathways connect to the existing NCC pathway to provide greater park access to residents on bike and on foot. Kilometres of new pathways run throughout Lansdowne and will take you to the various buildings, outdoor event spaces and parkland. Bike racks are conveniently located throughout Lansdowne with enough onsite parking for more than 600 bicycles. The pathways at Lansdowne are shared spaces. Pedestrians, cyclists and cars will all share the roadway. Pedestrians will always have the right of way, followed by cyclists. Car access will be limited. These wide pathways make it easier for everyone to move around freely and experience Lansdowne. The site is fully accessible for people with disabilities. Cyclists can enter the site through any of the new pathways and on game days and for special events, cyclists will be encouraged to use a new pathway extension off Queen Elizabeth Driveway near the Horticulture Building, to be completed by late fall. This path will bring cyclists to the biking park area, where they can securely leave their bikes during larger events. Secure bike parking is free with a game ticket. There is space for an additional 750 bikes in the secure lot. On normal days, cyclists and pedestrians can move freely through the site on paths together. When the site is busy, cyclists should dismount and walk their bikes for everyone’s safety.

The winter of 2013-2014 was brutal in Ottawa. Long and harsh, the icy chill bit deep into 5,300 workers on site to create the new Lansdowne. But that didn’t stop construction. Crews remained hard at work on the stadium, underground parking garage and urban park to keep on schedule for the re-opening of the redeveloped 80-acre site. Innovative construction techniques such as ground-heating machines and insulating tarps were used to advance work through frigid winter months. “I can’t say it went without problems, but the project team is so dedicated that we are able to overcome every obstacle. That’s what gets you through the dark days,” said Maro Manconi, City of Ottawa Manager, Design & Construction at Lansdowne. On site working out of a trailer since the fall of 2012, Manconi has watched the new Lansdowne emerge. From the drama of moving the landmark Horticulture Building from its original location 150 metres to the east, to coordinating the pouring of infrastructure concrete from an onsite mixing plant, the project has moved forward at a steady pace. There are over 50 contractors currently involved in the construction at Lansdowne. Some of these include: Pomerleau Inc. - General Contractor and Overall Site Management; MHPM - Project Managers for OSEG; D&G Landscaping - Urban Park contractor; Minto Residential and Commercial - for the Office Tower; Trinity - Overall Retail Development; Doran; Laurin and Massicotte. “We have a motivated team, and that’s keeps this project going.” Moving an historic structure is no easy feat. The relocation process had to be carefully planned to protect the integrity of the building. By the time it was ready to move, the building weighed 1,700 tonnes, including the 480 tonnes of steel beams installed inside for strength and support. It was raised 90 cm with hydraulic jacks onto 48 dollies – each carrying more than 32 tonnes.

City of Ottawa Project Manager Marco Manconi surveys progress on the 18-acre urban park adjacent to the new TD Place stadium and arena. The move took about a week as workers stopped it every five to 10 feet to recalibrate the wheels and ensure that the Horticulture Building arrived precisely at its new home. The building’s heritage designation was removed to allow for the move, but it will be redesignated. “The new location ensures the Horticulture Building will not be overshadowed by taller new commercial buildings on the site. Instead, it will be an architectural anchor for the new urban park, standing in a prominent position near the Rideau Canal. It will reclaim its role as a community gathering place, much as it was when it opened 100 years ago.” The Aberdeen Pavilion, among Ottawa’s most recognizable buildings, is Canada’s last large-scale exhibition building surviving from the 19th century. “The Aberdeen Pavilion and Horticulture Building now create a heritage gateway that focuses the role of both buildings as a community space.” Though Lansdowne is geared toward pedestrian traffic, there is an underground parking garage with about 1,300 parking spaces over approximately 11 acres, stretching from Queen Elizabeth Drive to Bank Street. There are two main vehicle entrances and exits to the garage – one from Queen Elizabeth Drive and a second off of Bank Street, near the stadium. Parking will service the retail component of Lansdowne as well as providing restricted on-site event parking. An entrance for residents only will

DAVID JOHNSTON

be located along Holmwood Ave. Native heritage is also built into Lansdowne and Aberdeen Square. The interlocking stone that stretches across the square has been patterned to resemble Algonquin basketry and food vessels. This interpretive element is inspired by the care and respect paid to food by Algonquins and is set within the heart of the Ottawa Farmer’s Market. The Teaching Circle, south of the rink at the east edge of the property, is another location for visitors to connect with Algonquin culture. Lansdowne’s history is rich with examples of teaching and exhibition and the Teaching Circle will allow for interaction between the Park’s history and that of the Algonquins. Seven Trees of Significance surround the Teaching Circle. Identified by botanical markers and highlighted by interpretive panels, identifying and describing their significance to Algonquin culture, the seven trees are: Eastern White Cedar, Paper Birch, Trembling Aspen, Sugar Maple, Basswood, White Spruce, and Tamarack. The Civic Demonstration Gardens, to be planted in spring 2015, will feature an ethno-botanical garden to feature plant species significant to the Algonquins of Ontario that are of ceremonial, medicinal or practical use. All of these features are intended to not only beautify the square, but also to help educate visitors about Algonquin history, culture and art.

Workers rolled out the first piece of turf at centre field of TD Place Stadium.

Building Lansdowne Horticulture Building regains former glory Transport Demand Management As Lansdowne welcomes visitors this summer, the Horticulture Building will be in the middle of a major restoration. By the end of the year, it will retake its rightful place as a prominent community space. Work is underway to restore this landmark and to make it an architectural anchor for Lansdowne. It will retake its role as a place for community to gather, through farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; markets, festivals, sports and other cultural events. The Horticulture Building was built in 1914 to the designs of Francis C. Sullivan and Allan Keefer. Its place in Canadian architectural history is important given that Sullivan was the only Canadian student of Frank Lloyd Wright. He brought Wrightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Prairie Style to Canada in this buildingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s design elements: horizontal lines, hipped roofs with broad overhanging eaves, and windows grouped in horizontal bands. The building has undergone considerable change â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a workshop was added to the east side in the 1940s, ice was added in 1969 for curling â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but it has remained a public

space. Many Ottawa residents have fond memories of the building as a central site for curling and other public events. While it received heritage designation in 1989, the building was neglected over the past 20 years. It had been reduced to a storage facility, deteriorating to the point that the public was no longer permitted inside. The heritage designation was brieďŹ&#x201A;y rescinded between 1991 and 1994 to allow for the removal of the workshop, which was not part of the original design. As part of the Lansdowne redevelopment, the landmark Horticulture Building was moved from its original location 150 metres to the east. Together with the Aberdeen Pavilion, the building now creates a heritage gateway that focuses the role of both buildings as a community space. The relocation process had to be carefully planned to protect the integrity of this historically signiďŹ cant building but in November 2012 the move was successfully completed.

One of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s historic treasures, The Aberdeen Pavilion, is the last large-scale exhibition building in Canada surviving from the 19th century. When it opened its doors in 1898 at the dawn of the 20th century, its large, column-free interior made it the ideal space to house the Central Canada Exhibition and to promote advancements in agriculture and livestock. Named for staunch agricultural supporter Governor General, the Earl of Aberdeen, it was so associated with agriculture that it became known as the Cattle Castle almost immediately. It became a showcase for Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s burgeoning manufacturing sector, earning another moniker: the Manufacturersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Building. It was also one of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s earliest community skating rinks and the site of the Ottawa Silver Seven 1904 Stanley Cup victory. During the Boer War and both World Wars, it was a staging ground for troops prior to deployment overseas. By the time it received Ontario heritage designation in 1982 and as a National Historic Site in Canada in 1983, it had fallen into disuse. In 1992, Ottawa undertook a major refurbishment, restoring the Aberdeen Pavilion to its original splendour, with funding from the governments of Canada and Ontario. Successfully combining the practical with the fanciful, the refurbished building now captures the holiday atmosphere of a 19th-century fair. It remains a visual centrepiece for the redeveloped Lansdowne and an important link to Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s past.

The Aberdeen Pavillion stills stands out as an Ottawa landmark in the newly re-designed Lansdowne. With its impressive sweeping roof, dome, corner towers and classical details, the building â&#x20AC;&#x201C; designed by Ottawa architect Moses C. Edey â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is a centrepiece at Lansdowne. The century old building will serve a wide variety of community uses. DAVID JOHNSTON

There is a long a colourful history rooting Lansdowne in the agricultural community. The Ottawa Valley Farm Show got its start when the newly formed Ottawa Valley Seed Growers Association sponsored its ďŹ rst seed fair at Renfrew Collegiate in 1927. Rotating each year throughout Eastern Ontario and Western Quebecâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rural communities, the seed fairâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success soon outgrew smaller venues. In 1959, the show

Aberdeen Pavillion a century-old landmark in Ottawa

moved to Lansdowne Park and for the ďŹ rst time, Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longest-running agricultural trade show had a permanent location. With more space at the Lansdowne Park location, large farm equipment manufacturers soon saw the opportunity to set up displays of new farm machinery. This became a major attraction for visitors to the show in conjunction with the OVSGA. The show expanded to six exhibit areas including the entire Civic Centre ďŹ&#x201A;oor and concourse, the heritage building, and the Aberdeen Pavilion â&#x20AC;&#x201C; widely known as the Cattle Castle.

The Ottawa Valley Farm Show remained at Lansdowne Park until 2011 when it relocated to the Ernst & Young Centre in the south end of the city due to the redevelopment of Lansdowne. The OVFS remains a spring tradition for the agricultural and rural communities. With over 300 exhibitors, the show includes displays by livestock breed associations, 4-H exhibits, arts and crafts, farm toys and books, tools, equipment, and the fundraising Pedigreed Seed Sale for the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital of Eastern Ontario.

Building Lansdowne Lansdowne stands proud of its war support record Lansdowne Park has been a gathering place for well over 100 years but three times in the last century it served as a gathering place for troops going to Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foreign military missions. The opening of the Aberdeen Pavilion for the 10th Annual Central Canada Exhibition of 1898 showcased the development of this unique site into a signiďŹ cant national and international venue and set the stage for a gathering of military forces. From 1899 to 1901 Lansdowne was used as a staging site for troops of the Lord Strathconaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Horse. Soldiers were encamped on the site before shipping out to what is today South Africa to join the British Army against the Dutch South Africans, known as Boers.

With the outbreak of the Boer War in October 1899, the government of Canada responded by recruiting, equipping and transporting two contingents of volunteers to serve with the British forces in South Africa. Over the next three years, more than 7,000 Canadians, including 12 women nurses, served overseas. The war is a key event in the military history of Canada the ďŹ rst time that Canada dispatched troops to an overseas war and it started at the exhibition grounds at Lansdowne. Only 15 years later, at midnight on August 4, 1914, Britain was at war and that meant Canada was at war. Prime Minister Robert Borden offered Canadian assistance to Great Britain and called for a supreme national effort. With an outpouring of patriotic support, Canada mobilized quickly. Less than two weeks later on August 23, 1914, the new Princess Patriciaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Canadian Light Infantry (PPCLI) Regiment paraded for the ďŹ rst time at Lansdowne Park. The Park was taken over by the Department of National Defence for use in training troops. The Regiment was the ďŹ rst Canadian infantry unit to head overseas and arrived in France on December 21, 1914. Following the declaration of war, about 3,000 applicants were recruited and by August 19 a full complement of 1,098 had been selected. Captain Andrew Hamilton Gault, A An drew dr ew H amilton Ga ault, a prominent Montreal

businessman, raised the regiment out of his own funds with a contribution of $100,000, (equivalent to more than $2 million in 2014), making the PPCLI the last privately raised regiment in Canada. Military connections to Lansdowne were wellestablished by the time the Second World War began. During World War II, Lansdowne served as an induction centre for thousands of Canadians enlisting to ďŹ ght overseas. It became home to The Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Own Cameron Highlanders of Ottawa and the 4th Hussars of Canada, who later became the 4th Reconnaissance Battalion (4th Princess Louise Dragoon Guards). When Canada declared war on September 10, 1939, The Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Own Cameron Highlanders of Canada had already begun to mobilize and was at full strength of 807 within one week. The 1st Battalion embarked for overseas on December 16, 1940 and arrived in the UK on Christmas Eve. The 4th Princess Louise Dragoon Guards deployed in 1941. Both regiments served in multiple campaigns during the war. The Cameron Highlanders of Ottawa continued as a regiment following the WWII. With their long history of service in the capital, they were granted the Freedom of the City on May 24, 1969. This is the highest honour conferred by a city council upon a military unit.

Building Lansdowne

Lansdowne, History in the Making for our future. The new Lansdowne offers a host of features unimagined in 1868, but has held true to its origins as a place of community and commerce. The new Urban Park, with over 800 trees and acres of new greenspace, will be visited by residents and their guests for decades to come. I wonder what the next ‘first’ at Lansdowne will be. Looking to the legacy of Lansdowne’s heroes past, the ingenuity of Thomas Ahearn, the tenacity of Frank McGee and the nobility of Hamilton Gault, and each of the tens of thousands of veterans who have called Lansdowne home, we know that the possibilities are limited only by our imagination and determination. Lansdowne will continue to be a place where history is made. I encourage every resident of Ottawa to come, and not just experience Lansdowne’s renaissance, but to help build it as well.

CITY OF OTTAWA

By Mayor Jim Watson For the past 146 years, Lansdowne Park has been one of Ottawa’s most important civic sites. It has hosted agricultural fairs, exhibitions, festivals, concerts and sporting events. At Lansdowne, the Silver Seven brought the Stanley Cup to Ottawa, the 67’s the Memorial Cup, and the Rough Riders the Grey Cup. Lansdowne has been the site of many firsts, for our city and our country. The electric stove, light bulb and telephone all made their Canadian debut here in Ottawa, at Lansdowne. Lansdowne has, at times, served a more solemn purpose, as a staging area for troops being deployed overseas, or a mass funeral for a fallen police officer. As we anxiously await the arrival of the renewed and revitalized Lansdowne, we have the opportunity to consider all that this place has meant to the development of our city, as well as the possibilities it provides

Football legacy

TD Place at Lansdowne is ready to kick off a new era of football in the Capital. The Ottawa RedBlacks are the newest addition to the Canadian Football League. Though the team has a new name, it still maintains the traditional colours that link it to a long and rich history. The Ottawa Football Club came into existence in 1876 and alternated between the Ontario and Quebec Rugby Football Unions. After being suspended for rough play in 1897, the Ottawa Football Club reorganized itself into the Ottawa Rough Riders, and adopted the red and black colours of the Canadian Regiment in the Spanish-American War. In 1909, the Rough Riders moved their games from Metropolitan Grounds to Lansdowne, where the team called home until it folded in 1996. However, when the team won its first Grey Cup in 1925 and its second in 1926, they were known as the Ottawa Senators. The team had changed their name the previous year after amalgamating with St. Brigid’s, which played in the city league. In 1927, the team reverted back to the Ottawa Rough Riders. Lansdowne would continue to be their home over the years, with such hall-of-famers as Tony Golab, Russ Jackson, Tony Gabriel, Tom Clements and Coach Frank Clair. They would win seven more Grey Cups, in 1940, 1951, 1960, 1968, 1969, 1973 and 1976. Football made a brief return from 2002 to 2005 with the Ottawa Renegades. And now it’s back at Lansdowne where the spirit has always remained.

Lansdowne saw hockey’s Stanley Cup hoisted for Ottawa Over its long history, the Stanley Cup has been hoisted in many iconic buildings the Montreal Forum, the Olympiad in Detroit, the Boston Garden – and the Aberdeen Pavilion at Lansdowne. In 1904 the Ottawa Hockey Club, later the Senators and also known as the Silver Seven, were the defending Stanley Cup champions and considered the premier hockey team in Canada. Ottawa had a reputation as a rough team and featured such stars as the Gilmour brothers, Bouse Hutton, and Frank McGee. Three teams challenged Ottawa that year for hockey’s Holy

Grail – the Winnipeg Rowing Club, Toronto Marlboroughs, and the Brandon Wheat Kings. Ottawa defeated the Winnipeg in the first series, two games to one. Game Three ranked as the bloodiest Stanley Cup game at that time. The Ottawa team won the Stanley Cup on home ice at the Aberdeen Pavilion that year and again in 1905. Each player received a pocket watch to commemorate their victory. One of the watches is held at the City of Ottawa Archives. Many old arenas, like the Boston Garden and Detroit Olympiad, no longer stand. But like the pocket watch, the Aberdeen Pavilion still captures the glory of hockey’s early years. R0012799688-0717

The Renfrew Mercury - Thursday, July 17, 2014 61


Young talent showcased at Renfrew Rotary Music Festival Dorothy Garrough Renfrew Rotary Club

Community - Renfrew Rotary’s spring Music Festival once again showcased many young talented mu-

sicians in our area. Parents, friends and associates enjoyed being regaled with the delightful sounds of music both vocally and on the piano. The glorious sounds emanated from Kirk Hall with the vocal com-

ponent and the piano component from Trinity-St. Andrew’s. The awards ceremony was held on May 7 and once again the public could enjoy the music of our young people.

There was a new award this year. It was the Betty Anderson Bursary, given to Heather Lepine for her musical talent and potential. This $500 award was given by Judy Borer in memory of her mother,

Betty Anderson. In addition, Renfrew Rotary has expanded to send gifted students to the provincial competition each year. See MUSIC FESTIVAL, page 63

Grape arbour was a place of solace in the 1930s Lifestyle - Today it would serve no meaningful purpose to a farm that is now used for nothing more than to run cattle and with the house long gone. But back in the 30s the grape arbour served many purposes, and I am not sure now if Father worked the vines to form the arbour, or if they grew that way naturally...although I strongly suspect Mother had asked Father to coax the long vines into shape. At any rate, natural or otherwise, the grape arbour was a high arch of green leaves, completely closed in on the north, east and west sides, with only the south portion facing the old log house open for easy access.I thought the hollow was enormous. As big as our kitchen it was. And Father and Mother could easily stand up inside the arbour, so it would have had to be at least six feet from ground to the top vines. As soon as the leaves formed, the hollow was immediately turned into an outdoor room. At the start of the summer season the grass inside was thick and green, but after a couple weeks of constant use, the grass shrivelled up and died and left a soft mat of straw in its place. Mother would move a wash stand

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

into the very back of the cavity, and Audrey and she would take enough dishes out of the kitchen cupboard to stock the wash stand for the season. A bake table from the summer kitchen was moved out; two benches from the drive shed, and the big wood swing with the double seats helped fill the cavity, and the grape arbour was ready for business. We still ate our breakfasts in the house, but unless it was pouring rain, our noon meal was eaten outside. Father tried to tell Mother using the grape arbour as a dining room added to her work load 10 fold, but Mother always said it was worth the effort. We carried the food out on trays covered with sparkling white tea towels which remained on the steaming bowls and platters all the time we were eating. Heaven forbid that a fly would come within a country mile of something that was going into our

mouths. It didn’t matter how hot the day, the grape arbour was always cool inside. The big flat leaves kept the hot rays from penetrating, and if there was a breeze, they still allowed the air to circulate, so it was a most pleasant place to spend an hour at noon time. Father, instead of going into the kitchen to the creton couch, as he did every day after his noon hour dinner, would tilt back an old weather-beaten chair against the table and have his mid-day nap, which he seemed to be able to slip into with the greatest of ease inside or outside the house. When the meal was over, Audrey would bring out the big white granite dish pan filled with hot soapy water, and even the clean-up from the meal was done outside. Sport, our old collie stood at the ready, waiting for whatever morsel was left on a plate. Plopped right on the ground. No need for a dog dish outside. On Saturday morning, as a rule, the grape arbour was off limits to everyone but my sister Audrey. Her best friend Iva Thom would come to visit, after each had done her chores, and with their embroidery work, or knitting they would head for the old wood two seater swing.

I was never allowed to go near them. Mother said they had earned a time of privacy. How I longed to listen in on their grown-up talk about boys and spooning, and kissing and goodness knows what all...subjects which I knew for a fact peppered their talks in the grape arbour. But they kept their voices low and the big green haven sheltered them from young prying ears and the world outside. When I did have the privilege of having the grape arbour to myself, I would take my dolls out there, and the cavity would become my house. I would rearrange the benches to form rooms, and the table would be the bed, and I would slip into a world of fantasy where I alone would have admission. There were many quiet times spent in the grape arbour. With Mother. These were private and special times. She with her sewing basket on the ground beside her chair. Me sitting beside her listening to tales of her life in New York City before she moved to the farm in Renfrew County, and I would think there was no better place to be in the whole wide world, than in that most secluded of spots, the grape arbour.

Community - The building that was home to Algonquin Collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pembroke Campus for more than 40 years is about to change owners. The former Pembroke Campus, located at 315 Pembroke Street East, has been sold for $1.5-million. If approved by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities, the college intends to put the money raised from the sale towards the cost of its new Waterfront Campus. The sale of the building closes a chapter on Algonquinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rich history of serving the Upper Ottawa Valley. College president, Dr. Kent MacDonald, says the College is pleased the building has been sold and will remain a vital component of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s infrastructure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The sale is good for the Pembroke community. Our former campus is in a prime location. At the same time, we are pleased to be writing a new chapter with our beautiful new waterfront campus that enhances the experiences

for all our Pembroke campus students,â&#x20AC;? adds MacDonald. The former campus was originally a dairy and had to be expanded to accommodate the college when it began operations in 1969. After leasing the building for several years from Pembroke businessman Bill Morglan, the college purchased the building in 1983 and continued to operate it until the fall of 2012, when construction was completed on its new Waterfront Campus. The former campus is a three-storey building that features several classrooms and labs, a commercial kitchen and cafeteria, library and many offices. It also has three large parking lots and is centrally located, beside Pembrokeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s historic courthouse. Over the years, there were many improvements made to the building including decorative upgrades to the cafeteria, the addition of an elevator and the installation of digital technologies to support internet connectivity within the building.
