Trustee M. Curry Park. This is the new official name for the city of Ottawa park fronting on Hartsmere Drive in Stittsville and adjacent to both Guardian Angels Catholic School and a soon-to-be-built new public elementary school. The park has been named in honour of former longtime Catholic School Board trustee for the area, Mary Curry of Stittsville, who passed away in 2005. She served as a trustee for what is now the Ottawa Catholic School Board from 1987 to 2000. It was during her tenure that Stittsville’s first two Catholic elementary schools, Holy Spirit Catholic School and Guardian Angels Catholic School, were opened as well as the community’s Catholic high school, Sacred Heart Catholic High School. A ceremony to mark the official naming of the park as the “Trustee M. Curry Park” was held at the site on Monday afternoon, June 21, under clear blue skies and attended not only by municipal and school board dignitaries and friends but also by the whole student body of the adjacent Guardian Angels Catholic School. City of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri, who hosted the ceremony, said in his opening remarks that the park naming was to honour Mary Curry for her dedication and leadership within the community. “Mary’s passion for youth and her years of advocacy and hard work is to be celebrated,” he said. “Her achievements in the area of education have affected so many families in Stittsville and Goulbourn – and they will continue to do so for years to come.”

Shakespeare is coming to Alexander Grove park in Stittsville again this summer. Ottawa’s “A Company of Fools”, a professional summer Shakespeare troupe, will be presenting the comedy “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” at Alexander Grove park in Stittsville on Friday, July 16 at 7 p.m. Those planning to attend are reminded to bring along their own seating such as a blanket or lawn chair and bug spray. “A Company of Fools” has presented a similar Shakespearean drama at Alexander Grove in recent years as part of the troupe’s Summer Torchlight series. This year “A Company of Fools” will be using a new travelling stage that is essentially portable blocks that fit together. This will elevate the actors, making for better sightlines for the audience while also allowing the actors to be heard better. “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” is described as a lively comedy that revolves around true love finding its way, helped along by fairy dust, the mischievous Puck and an ass. The play will have all of the “fooling around” expected from A Company of Fools production, mixing physical energy, silliness and fun in the play to delight those of all ages. SHAKESPEARE, SEE 3

the correct solution to an issue. John Curry of Stittsville and Jane Hill of Kanata, children of Mrs. Curry, also spoke at the ceremony. Ms. Hill referred to a recent comment by Rabbi Bulka regarding service to the community as something that everyone should do not because of a need to give back but because they are part of the community. She said that her mother “was a model of servant leadership” and that “she was passionate and committed to her community of Stittsville and she worked so hard.” She said that the park’s location adjacent to an existing school and beside a soonto-be-built school was indeed an appropriate one for someone who had worked so diligently and constantly to ensure community-based places of learning for the
community’s children. Mr. Curry said that the naming of a park after his mother was an affirmation that her efforts in the community did make a difference and that her work as a trustee contributed to the growth of Catholic education in Canada. He pointed out to the hundreds of Guardian Angels students at the ceremony that they were the reason why his mother was a trustee – “to ensure that you, the children of Stittsville, can receive a quality, faithbased Catholic education from kindergarten through to grade 12 right here in your own community.” The ceremony concluded with the unveiling of the plaque which will be affixed to a large rock at the entrance to the park, right beside the park sign which bears the name “Trustee M.
Curry Park.” The plaque reads as follows: “This park is named in commemoration of the life and achievements of Mary Curry 1920-2005 in recognition of her devotion to quality education and the wealth of knowledge and leadership she demonstrated as a strong community advocate and Catholic School Board Trustee. Mary’s passion and support for learning, youth and community will continue to be honoured by the residents of Stittsville and Goulbourn and her loving family.” Besides serving as a school trustee, Mrs. Curry also served as a member of the Goulbourn Local Architectural and Conservation Advisory Committee and as a member of the Goulbourn Township Public Library Board.

O Canada - We Stand On Guard For Thee
It’s a celebration and that’s what it should be. Canada Day gives us all a reason to be happy and marvel at our wonderful luck to be citizens of this country. What you have to like about Canada is not only that it is a land of great opportunity where a person can become, with hard work and some luck perhaps, just about anything that he or she wants to be but also that Canada is the world’s leading example of a tolerant, inclusive society. Canada provides everyone with the chance not only to retain the cultural traits and customs of their ancestors but also to flourish in the Canadian milieu of generosity and acceptance of others. We are, admittedly, far from perfect. We could do more to
have more economic equity in our society. We could do more to protect our environment and slow down climate change. We could do more to ensure happiness for our aboriginal citizens. We could do more to ensure affordable housing for everyone. We could do more to bring development to the world’s poorer countries. So, there is work still to be done and in these days right after graduation ceremonies at our high schools, it is in the forefront of our thoughts that today’s young people have the potential to take us as a society closer to perfection in all of these areas. They are aware of the poor, of the environment, of our native peoples, of justice in housing and of helping others in less blessed societies.
Advancements will undoubtedly be made in all of these areas in the coming years and decades. But right now, let’s celebrate where we are at today in this free, democratic and marvelously rich country in so many ways. To be Canadian is to be one of the world’s most fortunate beings. So, whether you travel down to Parliament Hill for the Canada Day celebrations there, as every Canadian should do at least once, or whether you attend the Canada Day celebrations at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex right here in Stittsville, or whether you just stay home and relax with a Canadian flag in view, make sure that you take a moment or two to reflect on how great it is to live in Canada and how fortunate we all are to call this country home.
Researchers looking for Basswood area residents JOHN CURRY NEWS STAFF Have you ever wondered if where you live affects how active you are. If you live in the Basswood Avenue area of Stittsville, then the Healthy Active Living and Obesity Research Group (HALO) of the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario Research Institute wants to hear from you. HALO is now looking for families to help in the study of the effects of environmental factors related to increased physical activity. In addition to helping HALO with its research work, families involved in the study will have the opportunity to learn more about their own level of physical activity. In the study, HALO will be studying the effects of such things as proximity to recreation centres, ball diamonds and biking paths and how this proximity may impact the level of physical activity in various city of Ottawa neighbourhoods. Besides looking for participating families in the Basswood Avenue area of Stittsville, HALO is also looking for participating families in the Merivale Gardens, Grenfell Glen, Pineglen, Country Place (Qualicum), Redwood Park and Vanier South areas of the city. This study has all come about because of recent Statistics Canada data that reveals that today’s children are heavier and less fit than children in 1981. The data also shows that today’s children spend a lot of time sitting down in front of a screen, be it television, video games or computers. The data also reveals that today’s children do not meet the recommended guidelines of a minimum of 90 minutes of physical activity a day.

This growing childhood obesity affects quality of life as well as health and life expectancy. It also affects the health care system. HALO is thus undertaking a study of various neighbourhoods to determine the influence of such things as the proximity of recreational facilities on the level of physical activity in a particular neighbourhood. HALO (Healthy Activity Living and Obesity Research Group), housed at the CHEO Research Institute, is a multi-disciplinary research team that studies the prevention, management and treatment of pediatric obesity and promotes healthy body weights and active living.

JOHN CURRY NEWS STAFF On Wednesday, June 23, the ground shook as an earthquake rumbled across the Ottawa area. On Friday, June 25, the ground at the Munster United Church broke. Well, not literally break but ceremonially break as a ground breaking ceremony was held to mark the beginning of building project that will see the church get a new entrance with a cloak room, storage space and a wheelchair accessible washroom. This will all happen with the construction of a 20 foot by 20 foot addition at the rear of the church which sits on Munster Road in the heart of Munster. A small wooden addition which currently sits at the rear of the church will be removed for this new, larger addition which will include a new entrance door to the church, accessed by a new walk-
by hand. Using red shovels and wearing hard hats, the official groundbreaking ceremony involved Mr. Harding, Munster United Church minister Rev. Matt Gallinger, longtime parishioner Lillian Hobbs, Munster Community Association president Pat Picard, Ottawa Presbytery representative John Keddy and young parishioners Cameron Ferguson and Luc Kilabuck. Fundraising related to the addition project is ongoing. Among the fundraising initia-
tives are the sale of bricks, steps, windows and doors, with the proceeds going to the project. For youngsters, there is an opportunity to buy a shingle. The groundbreaking ceremony was only one part of the evening event which featured a BBQ supper of hamburgers, face painting and a whipped cream/sponge toss game with a live facial target (yes, Rev. Gallinger). The church’s youth group also were providing balloons which youngsters were able to tie to their wrists.

way leading to it from the north side of the church. The addition will have cloak room space as well as storage space along with access into the stone church building. The addition will cover a back window of the church which will be converted into an entrance to the wheelchair accessible washroom that will be included in the new addition. The project also includes a new stairway from the main floor of the church into the church’s basement hall. Currently the hall can be accessed from the church only by a narrow stairway. Wheelchair accessibility to the church will still remain via a ramp at the front of the church. The exterior of the new addition will feature vertical siding that should architecturally link the addition with the existing stone church building. At the ground breaking which was held last Friday in association with a BBQ supper and activity fair on the church grounds, Munster church council chair Rorry Harding noted that there had been a longtime need to improve the stairs to the church hall but noted that the project had developed into a building project and not just a stairway project. He admitted that it had taken the church a long time to get to the current point of proceeding with the project but happily announced that it was now getting underway. He said that the addition had to meet all of the building code requirements including seismic requirements, something which seemed perhaps extreme at the time but certainly makes a lot of sense after the June 23 happening. “It’s been quite a learning experience for all of us,” Mr. Harding said about the approval process for the project. Actual work on the addition will get underway in July, with the framing to take place via an old-fashioned type barn raising involved members of the congregation. However, the foundation digging will be done by machine, unlike in the early 1970’s when members of the congregation developed the basement hall, digging out the area

JOHN CURRY NEWS STAFF A graduation day is a special one in the lives of students. For graduating students of the Frederick Banting Alternate Program in Stittsville, Wednesday, June 23 was this special day this year. And this year it was extra memorable, although for another reason. “I know you wanted your graduation day to be a memorable one but really, an earthquake,” is how Ottawa Carleton District School Board trustee Lynn Scott opened her remarks at the Frederick Banting graduation and achievement ceremony at the Ron Maslin Theatre in Kanata. Yes, an earthquake, as it was on Wednesday, June 23 at 1:41 p.m. that a 5.5 magnitude earthquake rumbled through the Ottawa area, causing 30 seconds of bewilderment and panic. It was less than six hours before the Frederick Banting graduation ceremony took place. But the ceremony went ahead, with 82 stu-
City of Ottawa Councillor Reports By Shad Qadri, Councillor Ward Six Stittsville City of Ottawa I would like to congratulate the West End Coalition for organizing last Tuesday’s anti landﬁll expansion event on Carp Road. It was a great turnout and a great show of support and I felt the message on why the landﬁll expansion wasn’t needed was loud and clear. The message regarding the province to wake up about the I C & I sector was well delivered. As well, it was a positive sign when the message of the importance for the municipality taking the lead in working with the province to take control of the I C & I waste sector was reiterated. I would also like to thank MPP Norm Sterling and several of my council colleagues including His Worship, Mayor Larry O’Brien, Councillors Alex Cullen and Marianne Wilkinson for attending. Due to other commitments, Councillors Peggy Feltmate and Eli El-Chantiry had representatives from their respective ofﬁces present on their behalf. The community appreciated your support as residents continue their battle against a landﬁll expansion. I strongly urge all residents to ﬁle comments to the Ministry of Environment (MOE) regarding the expansion proposal of the Waste Management (WM) Carp Road landﬁll. As of Friday, June 18, for a 30 day period, the MOE is welcoming public comments on the project as WM has submitted its Terms of Reference to the MOE. I would like to remind residents that the TofRs are only for the landﬁll component. If you would like the scope of the EA process to include other items, please add them to your comments. You can send your comments directly to Jeffrey Dea, Project Ofﬁcer, Ministry of the Environment at Jeffrey.Dea@ontario.ca until July 19.

dents graduating from the Frederick Banting Alternate Program and more than a dozen individual achievement awards being presented. In her remarks at the opening of the ceremony, trustee Scott said that the Board’s secondary school alternate sites like Frederick Banting come the closest of all Board programs to meeting the criteria for 21st century learning and striking a balance between directed instruction and project-based instruction. She called these alternate site programs leading edge programming for students who want to learn. She said that the programs provide students not only with academic skills but also with all of the 21st century skills that will allow the students to achieve their dreams. Trustee Scott concluded by saying that even without the earthquake, June 23, 2010 would be a special day for the graduating students. City of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri, bringing greetings from the city of
Ottawa, congratulated the graduates on their accomplishments, telling them that they now had the knowledge and skills to reach their potential as they move into what he called an “exciting new chapter in your lives.” Frederick Banting Alternate Program viceprincipal Debra Buffett-Riddell, noting that this year’s graduation ceremony was the program’s 20th annual, praised the graduates for their courage, determination and resiliency. She noted their ability to get their lives in order and becoming what she termed as “confident, well educated, mature” adults. The graduates were piped into the theatre by bagpiper Mary MacDonald to the cheers and applause of the capacity crowd as the graduates took their seats on the stage. Valedictorians for the ceremony were Monica Schroeder and Samantha Paterson. The gathering also heard reflections from past Frederick Banting graduate Ashley Holden. 373814

I encourage you to let your voices be heard to the appropriate representatives. 240 West Ridge Drive Public Meeting The applicant has submitted a revised plan of subdivision for this site located on the west side of West Ridge Drive, south of the Trans Canada Trail and north of Deer Run Park. It is proposed the development will have two intersections which would align with the southern intersections of Eliza Crescent and Greenhaven Crescent. The application will be processed concurrently with a site plan application. Originally this land was reserved for an elementary school, however the school board indicated they no longer required the land. In 2007 City Council approved a zoning by-law amendment to rezone the land from Institutional Zone (I) to Special Residential Type 4 (R4-15 and R4-17). This zoning permits town homes, semidetached, and single detached dwellings with a restriction to not permit town homes fronting on West Ridge Drive. These applications are for 60 freehold townhomes ranging from 1400 sq ft to 1800 sq ft and 5 single-detached homes. The original proposed plan submitted in the spring of 2008 was for 31 single detached dwellings. I encourage you to attend the public meeting on this matter on Monday, July 12 from 7-9 pm at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex Hall A located at 1500 Shea

It was an incredibly successful campaign thanks to the generosity and heartfelt support from the community. Over $130,000 was raised in Stittsville. It was an incredibly emotional evening as participants shared tears and laughs, while fondly remembering and celebrating the lives of those touched by cancer. The money raised and the steps taken during the overnight relay make a tremendous difference. Giving one day to the ﬁght against cancer could add years to the lives of others. Thank you once again to all those who participated in, and organized, such a meaningful event.

Third out of 107 schools in the National Capital Region. Now that’s fundraising with some jump. And, indeed, that’s how it happened – with over 550 students at A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary School in Stittsville jumping up and down with skipping ropes, participating in the school’s annual Jump Rope For Heart event. And when it was all said and done and the jumping had stopped and the money was counted, the school ended up raising $21,051.78 for the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario, sponsors of the Jump Rope For Heart program. This sum raised by the A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary School skippers was the third highest total out of the 107 schools in the National Capital Region which participated in the program this year. A formal presentation of the funds to the Heart and Stroke Foundation happened at the school’s windup assembly last Friday, with Dawn Montgomery, area coordinator for the Heart and Stroke Foundation, on hand to accept the giant cheque. “You have raised a lot, a lot of money,” she told the assembled students and staff. She praised A. Lorne Cassidy for having a Jump Rope For Heart demonstration team which helps spread the message of healthy living to other area schools. She urged the students to remain active and to spend time outdoors so that they can be healthy and strong youngsters. Jump Rope For Heart allows students to be active through skipping while raising funds for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. This year the Jump Rope For Heart program exceeded its local fundraising goal of $585,000, with over $600,000 raised through the efforts of the various schools involved. The funds raised go to support and research and education initiatives of the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Home, not always so sweet
Part three of the four-part series Situation Critical explores seniors’ concerns about the care they receive in long-term care homes, and a representative example of those who experience exemplary care. THIRD IN A FOUR-PART SERIES
BY ROB O’FLANAGAN When a visitor pounds on the metal door of his no-frills, $550 a month apartment, George LeLievre slowly, painfully answers. That he is able to unlock the heavy door and swing it open with enough energy to flash an inviting smile and offer a “Please, come in,” is a remarkable feat, given the number of complex medical conditions that reside, or have resided, in this frail 67-year-old man’s body, and considering the number of times the tough Hamilton senior has walked a tightrope around the mouth of his grave. A broken back, five hernias, tuberculosis, colitis, lymphoma, at least two heart attacks and coma — LeLievre’s scar tissue draws a map of a tough life lived hard, of a body ravaged by manual labour, tobacco and drink. One of 17 children born to Pearl LeLievre and her husband George Sr., of Kirkland Lake, LeLievre is a living, laboriously breathing anomaly: He walked out of a long-term care home and returned to life in the community. Ministry of Health and Long Term Care statistics from 2009 show just 11.6 per cent of residents across the province were discharged to a private home. The average stay for more than 75,000 frail elderly in 625 provincially supported nursing homes is three years. During LeLievre’s year and a half in Victoria Gardens Long-Term Care, the sound-of-mind senior said he was witness to a situation that was as much detention centre as home, where residents were left in wheelchairs in front of televisions morning to night, and where, he said, the recently deceased were left in their beds for hours in plain view of visitors. LeLievre said he was provided a bare minimum of medical care and personal attention, despite his serious needs. “Seven-thirty in the morning they give me my medication,” said LeLievre, sitting at the kitchen table of his sparsely furnished flat, pictures of his large family on the walls, a cigarette burning in his bony fingers. “Then at noon, I get my medication. And four o’clock, I would get medication. And that’s all they done for me.” Ranka Stipancic, administrator of Victoria Gardens, on Victoria Avenue North, defended the level of care at the home. While she wouldn’t speak to LeLievre’s case specifically, citing privacy regulations, she said the home has been caring for residents with high-intensity medical needs for years, and that the province has a special program that helps defray the costs of that care.
Current Ministry of Health records (from May) show Victoria Gardens performed better than the provincial average on inspections over the last four years. Stipancic said round-the-clock registered-nursing care and staffing levels are adequate to meet the care requirements of residents. LeLievre’s view of his time at the government-licensed home in the Landsdale neighbourhood reflects concerns expressed by patients, families and elder advocates during research for Situation Critical, Metroland’s special report on long-term care. While Ontario’s most urgent problem is that tens of thousands of its most medically needy, fragile seniors are stuck, sometimes for years, on unbudging wait lists for a nursing-home bed, barriers to care can also arise once a senior secures a place in long-term care. Years of understaffing and pressure from the influx of increasingly older residents with more complex medical and personal needs leave staff gasping to cope with the demands. The average age of residents at admission is 80, and about 73 per cent have Alzheimer’s or other dementia. It can be overwhelming for front line personal support workers just to meet the daily living needs of the majority of residents, leaving those more able to fend for themselves. A skeletal figure with sunken cheeks and large, animated eyes, LeLievre said he often had to change his own colostomy bag in the nursing home despite chronic back problems. He continues to battle cancer and heart disease. “When I needed help to change my colostomy bag, I’d say, ‘Can I get some help to do that?’ They’d say, ‘With you in a minute.’ Then it was, ‘Oh, it’s my smoke break.’ Or it was, ‘Oh, dinner hour, can’t do it now.’ I wind up changing it myself.” Stipancic, the home administrator, said some residents choose to change their own colostomy bags. For those who are physically and cognitively capable, “the staff will provide teaching in order for the residents to maintain their independence.” Personal support workers assist those who need help with the procedure, she added. LeLievre said the dead were neglected during his stay. When a roommate passed away, the deceased man was left in his bed for hours. “There’s no courtesy there to pull the drape around him,” he said. “He lay in that bed all night until maybe 11 o’clock in the morning … That’s not the only one I seen, I seen many of them go that way.” Stipancic said when a resident dies in a long-term care facility, a physician is notified to come to pronounce death. Every tenth death is investigated by a coroner. “We can’t move the body until either the physician or the coroner have been here,” she explained, adding the body is always screened with privacy curtains
as part of postdeath care. An end stage of the health care system, long-term care is generally acknowledged as the place where those who need 24-hour personal and medical assistance go to live out their last days. Despite the large number of people residing in homes, those who study long-term care say it remains largely an out-of-sight, out-of-mind sector. “I think long-term care has been marginalized from mainstream health care,” said Kevin Brazil, a professor in McMaster University’s department of clinical epidemiology and biostatistics, an expert in long-term care and care of the dying. “It has been sort of bracketed and pushed aside.” Implicit ageism and a “sanitized culture” that distances itself from the realities of death and dying contribute to the marginalization, he added. A Residents Bill of Rights (included in the health ministry’s Long-Term Care Act) has long been in place to protect those living in long-term care settings, and a new and expanded version of the bill, containing more than 25 rights, will be in place this summer. But those rights — the right to be properly clothed and groomed, to privacy, to participate fully in care decisions, to engage in activities good for mind and body, and provision for family and residents’ councils through which complaints can be made — are widely overlooked and often violated in homes across Ontario, advocates for the elderly say. Homes post the Bill of Rights for residents and families to see, but there is pervasive fear of repercussions for complaining. “There are a few things about long-term care that are barriers to the enforcement of any standards or any rights,” said Natalie Mehra, director, Ontario Health Coalition, “and one is that residents are afraid of repercussions for complaining, the same as their families.” First-hand accounts of the conditions
and quality of nursing homes cover the exemplary as well as the questionable. A 2009 survey by the Ontario Health Quality Council found 60 per cent of families rated the care of their loved ones in nursing homes as good. Wendy Renault, whose mother, Janet, 86, lives in Willowgrove Long Term Care Residence in Ancaster (operated by Chartwell Seniors Housing REIT), is a representative case. She said her mother trusts the workers, smiles at them, hugs them and holds their hands. “I figure that’s the best testament to the care she gets here,” the daughter said. Chartwell officials spoke of the absolute need for empathy and compassion in long-term care. “Most of the people that work in this field are here because this is really what they want to do,” said Linda Schertzberg, Willowgrove administrator. “You have to be a strong individual, because we deal with death. They are here for eight hours a day with intense one-on-one with the people they are working with. So they become close to the residents.” Administrators in long-term care homes plead lack of funding and staff as a root cause in cases when care is less than optimal. “I don’t want to cry about money,” said Pat Morden, chief executive coach of Hamilton’s Shalom Village, a progressive home with a good reputation. “But it is pathetic what we get, and it’s not enough to do what you (the public) want us to do and what we want to do.” The Ontario government is currently overseeing a review of funding, but there is no indication yet of what steps — if any — come next.

SPECIAL TO THE NEWS He was like a general rallying his troops. Words like war and battle were in the vocabulary of his impassioned plea. It was city of Ottawa mayor Larry O’Brien declaring, once again, his opposition to landfills and, in particular, the proposed expansion of the Carp Road landfill. “The war is still one. The final battle is yet to be fought. But I think we can win it,” said mayor O’Brien at a late afternoon rally on Tuesday, June 22 at the Ultramar gas bar on Carp Road at highway 417, with the existing Carp Road landfill site used as a backdrop for the mayor and three other speakers at the event. “Landfills are a 19th century invention that has no place in the 21st century,” mayor O’Brien stated, promising that the city of Ottawa will fight the Waste Management proposal to expand the current landfill site. “We don’t want it” will be the city’s response to the Waste Management proposal, the mayor said, while acknowledging that the final decision will be made by the province, not the municipality. That is why he urged residents not only of the area but across the city to keep lobbying and protesting against the landfill expansion to ensure that the decision makers in Toronto know the feelings of Ottawa residents about the proposed expansion. The mayor cited the new green bin program as well as the Plasco waste to energy pilot project as part of the solution to handling waste. He called the existing Carp Road landfill and any expansion as “a big canker in the middle of a cosmopolitan city.” Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP Norm Sterling was equally vocal in stating his opposition to any Carp

Richmond Legion honours Navy SPECIAL TO THE NEWS Rainy weather changed the plans but did not cancel them as a planned ceremony marking the 100th anniversary of the Royal Canadian Navy on Sunday, June 6th ended up being held at the Richmond Legion Hall rather than at the cenotaph at Memorial Park. An abbreviated history of the Royal Canadian Navy, from its beginnings in 1910 through to the present day, was read by Jim Becking. A tribute to ships lost at sea was read by Jerry Jodoin, Don Atkinson and Peter MacArthur, with George Murphy ringing a ship’s bell as each ship was remembered. The bell had been presented to the Richmond Legion at its annual charter night dinner just the night before, with Peter MacArthur and Jerry Jodoin formally presenting it to the
Richmond Legion as a gift from the branch’s naval veterans. The 100th anniversary ceremony also included a naval prayer led by Rev. Michel Dubord, the Last Post and subsequently the Reveille played by Cameron Penner, a naval hymn entitled “Eternal, Father, Strong to Save” sung by Roger Bourgeois accompanied by Mrs. Fern Massey on the keyboard and the laying of wreaths on behalf of a number of levels of government and organizations. These include wreaths laid on behalf of the federal government, the Royal Canadian Navy, fallen comrades, Silver Cross mothers, the provincial government, the municipal government and various levels of the Royal Canadian Legion.

which were deteriorating with age. She had completed ten such interviews by 2004, after which she then began to do her own interviews with some longtime Goulbourn residents. A copy of one such interview, done with Russell Dowdall, ended up being sent by Linda Preston to a person in Kentucky who found it so interesting that a suggestion was made that the interview should be published. This led to the publication of these interviews in “Voices of Goulbourn Past”, both to preserve the oral history and to raise funds for the Goulbourn Museum. Linda Preston sits on the board which oversees the operation of the Goulbourn Museum. Ms. Preston explained that transcribing the interviews was just part of the project. Descendants of those interviewed had to be contacted for their approval of the publication of the interviews. In addition, the descendants were asked for any photographs that would enhance the published interview. This all took a lot of legwork and travelling. In addition, Ms. Preston did the layout and design of the book on her home computer, another time consuming task. But it all worked out and now, given the popularity of the first volume, work is underway on a second volume. More interviews are being done, with the second volume probably having interviews with the late Lola Sample, Dr. Ken Hartin, Russell Dowdall and Lois Dowdall. There will also be a chapter on the Morton/Conley sawmill and related enterprises of Stapledon. Another story in volume two will probably be that of Andy Bak, a Polish soldier in World War Two who later came to Goulbourn.
JOHN CURRY NEWS STAFF Oral history based on interviews with longtime Goulbourn residents recorded between 1978 and 1991 is now in book form thanks to sisters Linda Preston and Cheryl McCoy of Richmond. The first volume of “Voices of Goulbourn Past”, featuring ten of these interviews, has recently been published and is now in its third printing due to the interest and demand that it has generated. Indeed, a second volume is now in the works. Linda Preston told the story of how this all came about to members of the Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville at their meeting on Tuesday, June 15 in Stittsville. She told how her sister Cheryl McCoy began transcribing a series of interviews with longtime Goulbourn residents which had been taped between 1978 and 1991 but

Rotary members hear how oral history takes book form
The Carp Road landfill will be on the agenda at the July 8th monthly meeting of the Stittsville Village Association executive. Representatives of Waste Management, owners and operators of the site, will be in attendance to make a presentation about the proposed expansion of the Carp Road landfill. Although the SVA is a member of the Coalition of community groups which is opposing the proposal, SVA president Metin Akgun has given Waste Management a 45 minute time slot at the meeting, the same amount of time that was given at the SVA June meeting
to those opposing the proposal. Waste Management recently submitted its draft Terms of Reference for the proposal to the Ontario Ministry of the Environment. These Terms of Reference will guide the process that will be followed for the environmental assessment of the proposal. The Waste Management presentation at the SVA executive meeting on Thursday, July 8 has been scheduled for 7:30 p.m. The meeting itself will begin at 7 p.m. at the former Goulbourn Municipal Building at Stanley’s Corners, with all residents of Stittsville most welcome to attend.

Why is water dripping from my car even when it’s dry out?
This is being caused by the A/C system. The system works by evaporating and condensing a gas to release and absorb heat, it causes moisture to develop. This will eventually build-up, it’s then expelled from the system via a drain plug. This is a normal occurrence, especially on warmer days. 34 Edgewater | Kanata

Landfill proposal on SVA agenda
JOHN CURRY NEWS STAFF Manners aren’t what they used to be – especially more than a century ago. You can get a glimpse of the etiquette which prevailed in the 19th century at an exhibit which the Goulbourn Museum has recently installed at the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library. The exhibit, which will be at the library until Aug. 30, is entitled “More Than Manners: Etiquette in the 19th Century.” Featured in the exhibit are artefacts and photographs from the Museum’s collection
which demonstrate how social estiquette controlled what people wore, said and did in 19th century society. Indeed, etiquette in the 19th century not only dictated manners and behaviour but also a way of life. This much different and fascinating etiquette of the 19th century, which applied to men, women and children, will be demonstrated not just through the artefacts and photographs on display but also through the display of etiquette rules and facts that applied to everyone in society at that time – men, women and children. The Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public
Library is located at 1637 Stittsville Main Street. The Goulbourn Museum is located at 2064 Huntley Road, just south of Stittsville at
Stanley’s Corners. For more information about the Goulbourn Museum, please visit www.goulbournmuseum.ca or call 613-831-2393.

on board again this time around in opposing the Waste Management landfill expansion proposal. Waste Management representatives were present at the SVA meeting but they made no presentation at the meeting.
Stittsville Village Association president Metin Akgun commented that while landfill is cheap in the short term, it is very expensive in the long term because of the pollution problems that have been created. He advocated for some kind
Community opponents to the latest proposal to expand landfill operations at the Carp Road site presented their thoughts on the matter at the June meeting of the Stittsville Village Association. “We have come to believe passionately that there is a better way to dispose of garbage,” Peter Mantas of Stittsville told the SVA executive. Indeed, he called more landfill at the site a disincentive to developing better ways of disposing of garbage. This is where community opponents to Waste Management’s latest proposal and Waste Management are, in Mr. Mantas’ words, “at loggerheads” because the community opponents are willing to consider something other than a landfill while Waste Management is advocating for more landfill capacity at the site. He noted that community opponents had defeated Waste Management’s landfill expansion proposal four years ago and would do so again this time, saying that opposition in the community has not waned from the last time when thousands voiced opposition to the proposed expansion. While admitting that Waste Management has the right to be in business, he said that the firm did not have the right to disturb people’s right to enjoy their property, meaning that Waste Management has not right to emit odours into the air or to create pollution in the ground. He said that the latest proposal by Waste Management is a “kinder, gentler proposal” than the previous one but it still revolves around a landfill expansion. “It’s the same proposal, packaged differently,” Mr. Mantas said. “We do not believe it is the type of facility this community wants or needs,” he said, noting that the
vision for the community of those opposing the proposal does not include a huge mountain at the entrance to Stittsville. Harold Moore, a West Carleton resident, presented the SVA executive with a fact sheet on the history of the Carp Road landfill site, a history which goes back to the 1960’s when the site was a sand and gravel pit and then became a landfill site beginning in 1971. He pointed out that whereas in 1971 Stittsville was just a small village and Kanata had just begun, meaning that there were less than 10,000 people in the surrounding area, now there are 120,000 people in the surrounding area, meaning that the site is no longer suitable as a landfill site. He cited concerns about various gases emanating from the landfill site that can be hazardous to health. He also cited concerns about odours and leachate pollution of ground water. Mr. Moore said that what is being proposed by Waste Management is a landfill with a little bit of diversion added, rather than a proposal that emphasizes diversion with a little bit of landfill associated with it. Vincent Lavoie, another West Carleton resident who was also involved in the opposition four years ago, said that landfilling is old technology that is a disincentive to diversion. “We can’t allow the hole to happen,” he said with regard to the proposed new landfill at the Carp Road site. He noted that new technologies such as the Plasco pilot project with which the city of Ottawa is involved are now fairly close to become reliable and practical. He said that trucking garbage to other areas such as New York State for another two years while these new technologies are refined would be a small price to pay to keep the local community clean.

A tournament on Tuesday, June 22 at the Amberwood Golf and Country Club in Stittsville had all of its players associated with the number 80 – only, it wasn’t in relation to the scores on the course. Rather, it was in relation to their score in the game of life, as it were.

What to Do During an Earthquake Stay as safe as possible during an earthquake. Be aware that some earthquakes are actually foreshocks and a larger earthquake might occur. Minimize your movements to a few steps to a nearby safe place and if you are indoors, stay there until the shaking has stopped and you are sure exiting is safe.

DROP to the ground, TAKE COVER & HOLD ON until the shaking stops.
• DROP to the ground; take COVER by getting under a sturdy table or other piece of furniture; and HOLD ON until the shaking stops. If there isn’t a table or desk near you, cover your face and head with your arms and crouch in an inside corner of the building. • Stay away from glass, windows, outside doors and walls, and anything that could fall, such as lighting fixtures or furniture. • Stay in bed if you are there when the earthquake strikes. Hold on and protect your head with a pillow, unless you are under a heavy light fixture that could fall. In that case, move to the nearest safe place. • Use a doorway for shelter only if it is in close proximity to you and if you know it is a strongly supported, loadbearing doorway. • Stay inside until the shaking stops and it is safe to go outside. Research has shown that most injuries occur when people inside buildings attempt to move to a different location inside the building or try to leave. • Be aware that the electricity may go out or the sprinkler systems or fire alarms may turn on. • DO NOT use the elevators.
Use a doorway for shelter.

Stay inside until the shaking stops & it is safe to go outside.
• Stay there. • Move away from buildings, streetlights, and utility wires. • Once in the open, stay there until the shaking stops. The greatest danger exists directly outside buildings, at exits and alongside exterior walls. Ground movement during an earthquake is seldom the direct cause of death or injury. Most earthquake-related casualties result from collapsing walls, flying glass, and falling objects.
If in a moving vehicle
5891 Hazeldean Road Ottawa, Ontario K2S 1B9
• Stop as quickly as safety permits and stay in the vehicle. Avoid stopping near or under buildings, trees, overpasses, and utility wires. • Proceed cautiously once the earthquake has stopped. Avoid roads, bridges, or ramps that might have been damaged by the earthquake.
