Flash mob at Bayshore JOHN CURRY

NEW MEMBER One more for Rotary Club of Ottawa - Stittsville 18-19

$5,000 Stittsville sudent is inaugural bursary recipient 4

It was a flash mob, Stittsville style. And the three and a half minute dance involving 11 youth drew a crowd of 60 or 70 onlookers who applauded as the performance ended and the dancers drifted away, just as they had joined the flash mob by two’s and three’s when it began at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 16. It all happened on the first level at the Bayshore Shopping Centre in Nepean, at a central crossroads where suddenly a Lady Gaga song hit the airwaves, with first a trio of dancers appearing and starting to dance to the music. They were quickly joined by others who joined in by two’s and three’s, eventually forming a united group who moved in choreographed unison through its performance, ending after a series of moves with a straight line bow. As they danced to the music, shoppers who had previously been causally walking along stopped and watched and showed their apprecia-

tion with a round of applause as the dance ended and the flash mob dispersed just as unannounced and unobtrusively as it had formed in the first place. Aw yes, a first-ever public flash mob performance by Stittsville youth and they pulled it off successfully – a great performance by a group of youth who assembled suddenly in a public place, namely the Bayshore Shopping Centre, performed their choreographed dance to Lady Gaga’s music and then dispersed just as suddenly as they had appeared. A flash mob success! This was a project of Stittsville’s Youth Connexion program, a youth program in which city of Ottawa staff work with local youth on holding community events that are planned and organized by youth themselves for their peers. This flash mob was something that the youth wanted to do and that was supported by the staff as a fun activity. The Bayshore Shopping Centre was identified as an ideal location for such a flash mob activity. See FLASH MOB, page 3

Next February the 40,000 area residents in Luweero, Uganda will have a public library thanks to the Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville. The Club is partnering with a Luweero organization Maama Watali to create this public library, something that is extremely rare in Uganda. At present there are only 25 libraries in the whole country with all but two of them specifically linked to university and other education facilities that restricts use to those associated with the university. Not having public libraries prevents the people in Uganda from enjoying reading and from improving their reading abilities. While Uganda overall boasts that 66 percent of its total population is functionally literate, placing its 164th out of 200 countries, the literacy rate in the rural areas around Luweero drops to less than 30 percent. Marginalized youth are a problem but the Maama Watali non-governmental organization that is partnering with the Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville in this project has been working with these marginalized youth for four years now, training them in job specific skills to help them raise their socio-economic status. Those involved in this training program are prepared with work with these youth and the community in general to improve people’s reading skills. In addition, the District of Luweero government will be assigning and paying for a parttime librarian to oversee the facility and its security. The Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville has a commitment from four area schools

that will see them work with the new library to coordinate the study and material use to enhance the role of the library in the community. The goal of establishing this library in Luweero is to facilitate and encourage the passion of reading. Having diverse books to read outside of textbooks at school will encourage all community members to continue to read and will make research possible and more interesting. In addition, the new library is going to have a solar electrical system that will allow reading after dark, making the library available to more people, especially those who may not be able to visit the library during the day due to family obligations that require them to work to help support the family. It is felt that a library, used in association with the education system, will assist in the development of community members. It will also provide a reservoir of knowledge for community members, allowing them to research issues such as HIV Aids, clean water and nutrition, thus improving the overall awareness level among the people of these vital issues. Establishing this library in Uganda has a $12,000 budget. Books are now being collected and stored, to be shipped to Uganda when the library is ready. The Rotary Club of Ottawa-Stittsville has secured a storage locker in Stittsville thanks to the generosity of Portable Units Portable Storage (PUPS) where the books will be boxed for eventual transportation to Uganda. The Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville is also seeking any good, sturdy boxes that could be used for the shipping of donated books.

Flash mob Stittsville style

News What’s up in Stittsville? The figures are in and the Ottawa West Relay For Life event which was staged at Walter Baker Park in Kanata in June raised over $187,000. This contributed to the total of $1.3 million that was raised by the various Relay For Life events in the Ottawa area this year. The funds raised help fund cancer research as well as support programs for those battling cancer. Registration is now open for the 2012 Ottawa West Relay For Life which again will be held at Walter Baker Park in Kanata. The event had previously been held at the Sacred Heart High School field in Stittsville….The holding zone on new development in Stittsville and the Fernbank/Kanata West lands that was put in place by the city of Ottawa has now been lifted. The holding zone could be lifted because the capacity of the Hazeldean sewage pumping station is being increased to 1225 litres per second and eventually will be improved to over 1400 litres per second.

Sacred Heart Catholic High School graduate Samantha Kosierb is the inaugural recipient of a $5,000 bursary from the Saint Vincent de Paul Society for study at St. Paul University in Ottawa. The Stittsville resident was chosen from a number of candidates for this bursary, only one of which will be awarded annually to a graduating grade 12 student in the Ottawa Catholic School Board who has demonstrated involvement and commitment to the practice of the Catholic faith and to social justice in both the high school environment and in a parish. “Samantha just happened to stand out among them all,” Society of Saint Vincent de Paul vice-president Patrick O’Donnell said at the presentation of the bursary at St. Paul University in Ottawa on Tuesday, July 12 in explaining how Samantha was selected from among the candidates for the bursary. Samantha will be entering the human relations and spirituality program at St. Paul University this September, with the goal to eventually be a teacher or a school chaplain. At Sacred Heart, Samantha, who started at the school in grade seven after attending Guardian Angels Catholic School in Stittsville, was involved in Catholic leadership as a member of “The Well” religious youth group and the social justice club.

She travelled to the Dominican Republic with a school group to engage in social justice activities there. Samantha participates in activities at Holy Spirit Parish in Stittsville, distributing communion at Sunday mass and serving as a lay reader. She has recently joined the parish’s Catholic Women’s League organization. Mr. O’Donnell, at the presentation ceremony, pointed out that the Saint Vincent de Paul Society’s prime focus is to help the poor but that the Society also has a responsibility to help strengthen the Catholic faith. It is carrying out this responsibility through this new bursary which is meant to financially help a student who wants to attend St. Paul University and who has demonstrated a Catholic lifestyle and has been active in the church. Dr. Chantal Beauvais, rector of St. Paul’s University, thanked the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul for their generosity in providing the $5,000 bursary for study at St. Paul’s University. She explained that it is a challenge for St. Paul’s University to be more visible in the community. “We’d like for the gem to sparkle more,” is how she described making St. Paul’s University better known and appreciated in Ottawa. She said that the bursary produced a lot of winners: Samantha for receiving the funding, St. Paul’s University for receiving a marvelous student like Samantha and the Ottawa Catholic

School Board for seeing one of its students continue on in education at St. Paul’s University. Rector Beauvais praised the St. Vincent de Paul Society for expressing their Catholic values by partnering with St. Paul University in providing this bursary. She explained that the bursary is not just based on marks but also on involvement in the community and on embodying the values espoused by the St. Vincent de Paul Society. She explained that St. Paul’s University was founded by the Oblates, a religious order that traditionally has tried to help disenfranchised persons and those left out of society, much like the goals of the St. Vincent de Paul Society. This is why the partnership between the two organizations in the form of this new bursary makes so much sense. At the bursary presentation ceremony, Ottawa Catholic School Board trustee John Curry read a letter addressed to Samantha from Director of Education Julian Hanlon in which Mr. Hanlon notes how Samantha took advantage of the opportunities provided at Sacred Heart to deepen her faith and her commitment to the Catholic church. “You have certainly done this and I am sure that Sacred Heart High School has benefitted from your leadership over the last few years,” Mr. Hanlon wrote. See BURSARY, page 5

Two awards presented SPECIAL TO THE NEWS

Awards in memory of two former teachers at Goulbourn Middle School were handed out at the school at the end of June.

The Fran Bennett Memorial Award, which is presented at the grade six level, went to Megann Parks and Travis Clark. The King Long Memorial Award, which is awarded at the grade seven level, was presented to Rebecca Frost.

From page 3 The actual library itself will be built on Maama Watali property in Luweero, Uganda. Material costs are expected to be $1500 while the solar electrical system will cost $2500. The actual construction will be done by members of the Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville along with members of the Rotary club of Makindye and Luweero community members. Transportation of the books from Stittsville to Uganda is expected to cost

$8,000. Once in Uganda, the Rotary Club of Makindye (Kampala) will look after getting the books to Luweero. The Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville would be most appreciative of any financial contributions made to this project. In addition, the donation of books is encouraged. However, no magazines will be accepted and picture books must be in new condition only. Any encyclopedias must be recent ones. In addition, the Rotary

Club hopes to ship some used soccer equipment to Uganda when the books are shipped there. The West Ottawa Soccer Association is working with the Rotary Club to collect used equipment at the end of this season so that it can be shipped to Uganda. For more information about the project or to make a donation of funds or books, please contact Brad Spriggs of the Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville at 613-836-1637 or via email at


Bursary goes to Sacred Heart graduate From page 4 Others at the presentation ceremony included Rev. Ross Finlan, pastor of Holy Spirit Catholic Parish in Stittsville, Rev. Sister Stella Gregbefumwen who is a doctoral canon law student at St. Paul’s University, Deacon Ron McRae of Holy Spirit Parish, and Samantha’s parents and grandparents. At the ceremony, Samantha expressed her gratitude to the St. Vincent de Paul Society for selecting her for the bursary which is allowing her to attend St. Paul’s University. Criteria for this $5,000 bursary, one of which goes to a graduating student from the Ottawa Catholic School Board as well

as one to a graduate from the French Catholic School Board, includes academic results sufficient to guarantee acceptance at St. Paul University. The recipient also must have a record of involvement and commitment to the practice of the Catholic faith in the student’s high school. The recipient must also have a record of social justice commitment at his or her school, in his or her Catholic parish and in the community at large. The recipient must also be involved in his or her Catholic parish. Funds for the bursary are provided by the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul from funds generated by its thrift store on Wellington Street in Ottawa.

July 18, 2011

Ottawa Light Rail Transit Update On July 14th, Ottawa City Council voted unanimously to advance the Ottawa Light Rail Transit project, as announced by Mayor Jim Watson on July 7th. The approved report contains an updated cost estimate – within the budget of $2.1 billion – a new design plan and a clear and affordable path for OLRT implementation. The revised Queen Street alignment outlined in the report improves ridership experience, brings the tunnel closer to the surface, reduces risk and improves cost certainty for construction. The change allows the tunnel to be constructed at a depth of 15 to 16 metres instead of 39 to 40 metres. The revisions mean it should take LRT passengers roughly one minute to descend to the stations instead of two minutes. The report also recommends a Design-Build-Finance-Maintain (DBFM) procurement approach that will secure a fixed price contract to construct and maintain the LRT system from Tunney’s Pasture in the west to Blair Road in the east. This 12.5km, 13 station LRT system includes a tunnel through the downtown core to address the transit bottleneck that slows service and challenges the reliability of the system today. This procurement approach will ensure this project is on time and on budget while taking advantage of the ingenuity and innovative ideas of private sector partners. The City of Ottawa commenced its request for qualifications process to identify firms with a proven track record in delivering successful LRT solutions to cities around the globe. For more information: New Hydro Online Outage map In June, Hydro Ottawa launched a power outage map on their website. This latest addition to their outage communications portfolio displays the location of current outages, the estimated number of customers affected, the cause of the outage and the estimated time of restoration, if known. This information is updated every 15 minutes. Now, customers can access power outage updates by visiting in addition to calling their Outage Reporting and Information Line at 613 738-0188. Hydro Ottawa is among the top performers in the industry in providing uninterrupted electricity service, and restoring power quickly when outages happen. When a power outage occurs, Hydro Ottawa’s first priority is to respond to any unsafe conditions. Once safe, the next steps are communications and the restoration of service as quickly as possible. Hydro Ottawa welcomes your feedback on this new feature as they will continue to develop new solutions that will make information even more accessible. The link mentioned above will also be posted on my website. Hazeldean Road Construction Update The paving of Springbrook Drive from East Hazeldean to Trailway Circle has begun which will see the installation of a concrete sidewalk, on west side of Stittsville Main from Neil Street to about 260m south, begin shortly. Subsequent work is also on schedule to begin the installation of medians allowing better access to the Amberlakes Subdivision and Neil Avenue. The proposed construction work on the extension of Springbrook Drive from the south limit of the Hazeldean Road contract to Trailway Circle includes road resurfacing, installation of street lights ducts and miscellaneous concrete work. Phase II of the Hazeldean construction will also see the re-paving of Iber Road from Hazeldean to just north of Abbott Street. The proposed work on extension of Johnwoods from the north contract limit to Alon Street will include road resur-

facing, but this will also give us the unique opportunity to remove the two speed humps on Johnwoods during the re-paving. We undertook a survey on this issue in the local area in order to gage what the community would like to do regarding these speed humps. The results from all the residents, who responded, are as follows: (91.2%) of residents want them removed and (8.8%) of residents want them left in. The reasons for the proposed removal are as follows: With the extension of Huntmar Road now enabled and the four-lane completion of Hazeldean now weeks away, traffic has decreased on Johnwoods rendering the humps mostly irrelevant. The humps themselves are also worn out and causing damage to vehicles including emergency vehicles and their response time. With the proposed speed humps being removed, this would be an opportune time to remind all residents using this street and any street in our community and city as a whole, to please respect the speed limit. Certainly if you witness any speeding on this or any street, do not hesitate to report this immediately to Police at 613-236-1222 x. 7300. Every call is recorded and ensures that specific “hot spots” are identified for future monitoring. OC Transpo Route Changes OC Transpo’s Service Design team has finalized the route changes and how they will operate beginning in September. Staff are now beginning the process of developing schedules that will be made available to customers; this work will be completed over the next few weeks. As a result, beginning August 1st, the Travel Planner ( will have the functionality of allowing customers to view their route 60 days in advance – the usual process only allows for a 14 day view. This will allow customers to plan their trips with the new routes and service schedule. OC Transpo is continuing to develop a comprehensive communications strategy, which has developed a theme and website – – and a number of opportunities to connect with customers.

Canadian 200 m backstroke record holder Matt Hawes, who considers the upcoming world championships in Shanghai, China ‘a great dress rehearsal’ for next summer’s Olympic Games in London, stretches as he leaves the starting blocks.

Matt Hawes aiming at great swim DAN PLOUFFE Special to the News

He’s no longer a rookie to the world stage by any means, and as swimmer Matt Hawes prepares for his second career FINA Aquatics World Championships July 24-31 in Shanghai, China, the 25-year-old Sacred Heart High School graduate is ready to show he’s one of the very fastest swimmers on the planet. “I am really excited about the 200-metre backstroke and I feel like I’m ready for a major breakthrough onto the world scene this year,” Hawes says by e-mail from the Canadian team’s pre-worlds training camp in Singapore. “I have posted a lot of fast races this year, which has only boosted my confidence coming into World Championships.” Hawes currently owns the 23rd best 200 m backstroke time posted in 2011, although his personal-best time of one minute, 57.34 seconds – set at the Canadian team trials for the 2009 worlds, where he wound up placing 21st – would put him in the top-10. But Hawes’ aim for the worlds is even a step higher in his signature event. “I think anything is possible,” explains the Canadian 200 m back record holder who placed 10th at a 2010 World Cup race in Berlin. “You got to think big to be big. I am aiming for a great swim in the final.” Hawes’ first trip to Asia is the latest stop in a swim career that’s taken him to many places across the globe. Now into the second season where he’s returned to the Ottawa area as his home training base after a stint at the University of British Colombia, Hawes now lives in Sandy Hill and studies at the University of Ottawa when he’s home, which isn’t a whole lot due to his swimming schedule. “I have been away for training and competitions the majority of the year,” notes the holder of six Gee-Gees swimming records under coach Derrick Schoof, who came over from UBC to take over the U of O program at the same time as Hawes. “But whenever I am in town I make sure to drop into my parents’ for a good home cooked meal.”

Hawes’ parents, Lisa and John, live in Stittsville where John sometimes holds shooting practices for the athletes he coaches for the modern pentathlon national team. Although John is a former Olympian himself (he competed in the modern pentathlon exactly 35 years ago this week in Montreal, and previously attended the 1972 Games for swimming), he says he was “very much the parent” throughout his son’s career, minus the early teen years when he coached Matt at his ROC swim club, based out of Carleton University. John feels “quite proud” of what Matt has achieved, especially considering that at age nine when “he showed up to his first local swim meet, he took one look inside the pool and said, ‘I’m not doing that, I’m outta here!’” John recalls. “It’s quite a process and I think I’ve enjoyed the process probably more than I have enjoyed those particular moments of success like winning nationals or qualifying for teams,” John adds. “It’s a real journey and I’ve had a real good time watching the whole thing.” The coaching-style message about the importance of focusing on the process instead of the end goal is one that Matt certainly understands well. With the world championships on tap and just a year outside of the London 2012 Olympics, Matt says he concentrates his energy on daily objectives rather than getting overwhelmed by the prospect of competing in his first Games next summer. “The Olympic thought is always in the back of my mind,” notes the 2007 Pan American Games fourth-place finisher who also picked up a 4x100 m medley relay bronze medal in Brazil. “World Championships is my last major international competition before the Olympics in London and it is a great rehearsal. It would be my dream to represent Canada at the Olympics, but I’m taking it one step at a time right now.” The world championships 100 m backstroke race goes Monday, July 25 in Shanghai, followed by the finals the next day. The 200 m back is on July 28, with finals on July 29.

The store will be open seven days a week, 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Mr. LaPlante says that the key to success in the food business to is have what people want when they want it. Service, qual-

ity and variety are the keys. “Be ready for business – that’s the whole objective,” he told the Rotary Club members. He promises to be more aggressive price-wise than Sobey’s has been in the past. He also promises to be involved in the community. “We’ll do lots of community things,” he says, commenting that this is part of having a business in a community. He likes the location of his new store, in a freestanding building in a shopping area that has lots of parking. He also notes that the shopping area has The Beer Store and a Tim Hortons. “What more can you want?” he asks. Mr. LaPlante began working in the grocery business when he was only 16 years of age. Over the years, he has owned several food stores and has managed others. He and his wife operated a bed and breakfast in the United States for 12 years before they returned to the area four years ago.

It’s a brand new store but it’s a throwback to the past – fresh food and service like packers at the checkouts and even a car pickup. “We’re taking a giant step backwards,” says Tim LaPlante, franchise owner of the new Sobey’s store that will be opening in the Timbermere Plaza at the corner of Carp Road and Hazeldean Road in August, as he explained the store’s focus on fresh food and customer service when speaking to members of the Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville at a recent meeting. “Everyone is done at store level – fresh,” he said in describing how the new store will operate. This will include fruit, parfaits, fresh squeezed orange juice, homemade sausage and more. “Every department – it’s all made fresh at store level,” he reiterated. The store will feature a new format that is being implemented by Sobey’s. So far there is only a store in Kitchener and a new one on March Road in Kanata that have this format. Even the renovated Sobey’s at Terry Fox Drive in Kanata offers nothing like the format that will be used by this new Stittsville store. “They want to be a fresh food company,” Mr. LaPlante says about this new direction being taken by Sobey’s which he points out is the second largest grocery company in Canada. This changed format goes right to the actual layout of the store. “We have really departmentalized the whole store,” says Mr. LaPlante, explaining that the store will be a food store, not a grocery store. This means

Hydro is a necessity - no tax

It took a powerful summertime storm whose aftermath left many without hydro to once again demonstrate that electricity is a vital, necessary component of modern-day society and as such should not be subject to the GST or HST or whatever you want to call that consumption tax that is omnipresent in today’s society. Many in Stittsville and Goulbourn found themselves without hydro as a result of the severe wind storm which passed through the Ottawa area last Sunday, July 17 about 7 p.m. Indeed, as we know, this storm caused destruction far and wide, from trees down in the Glebe to a destroyed main stage at Bluesfest (thankfully with few injuries for such a catastrophe) to thousands cut off from their hydro supply.

In Stittsville, some lost their hydro for only seconds; others for up to 18 hours. Without hydro, you soon come to the realization that modern life as we know it virtually grinds to a halt. If this is not the definition of necessity, we don’t know what is. There is no GST or HST on food because it is regarded as a necessity. The same should apply to our electricity. Just why we put up with having this consumption tax applied to what is so very obviously a necessity in today’s modern life is beyond us. Surely the Ice Storm of 1998, now over a decade back in our memories, showed us all that electricity is a paramount requirement for today’s lifestyle. Without it, life as we know it comes to a screeching halt. And yet our governments

continue to impose a tax on this all important, we would claim, necessity in today’s world. This is not right and should be changed. There is a provincial election coming up. The provincial government can correct this injustice. Make sure that when a candidate, from whatever party, approaches you, point out that hydro is a necessity in today’s world. We cannot live, as our blackout periods after storms show, without it. If this is not the definition of necessity, we do not know what is. And if something is necessary, it should not be the subject of a consumption tax. It’s that simple. And our politicians should take action to remove it from our hydro bills.


Canadian children are getting fat. I know I’ve written those words before, and I’ve probably used slightly more politically correct terms. But folks, we have an epidemic on our hands. And if you’re reading this, it’s time to do something about it. There are many theories on why overweight and obesity has become a problem among our children. Those who like to ignore the obvious wonder if maybe kids are more stressed out, or if maybe it’s the fault of the schools, or maybe kids are just bigger because we’ve evolved. But in a recent informal comparison I made between the children of today and those that walked the streets in my own childhood, the reason become frighteningly clear. There are no kids walking the streets today. Kids aren’t walking in the woods. They’re not climbing trees in the park. They’re just not around. If you don’t believe the statistics that show nearly 60 per cent of Canadian children park

Where are the children?

themselves in front of screens for a minimum of three hours each day after school, just look outside your window. The weather is fine. The urban wildlife – raccoons, groundhogs, squirrels – are all out there, climbing trees, and chasing each other up and down the street. But where are the kids? You’d be hard-pressed to find a kid just frolicking in the grass, or playing tag in the neighbour’s yard, I promise you. American author Richard Louv writes about this in the 2008 bestseller, Last Child in the Woods: Saving our children from nature-deficit disorder. The book wouldn’t be so profound except that it’s really the only one of its kind produced for mass readership. And even then, it’s a somewhat dense tome. Louv’s basic argument is that, in the United States, there’s not much wilderness left. He quotes other scholars who suggest that the growth of suburbs in the post World War II era contributed to the death

of the American frontier, which offered the promise of wilderness and discovery. But Louv is optimistic. Despite numerous studies which show kids emotional and intellectual health has paralleled the rapid deterioration of their physical health, he believes it’s not too late for individuals to take this matter in hand; that we can build new towns that elevate our natural environment rather than destroying it; that we can put our kids back where they belong; in nature. In Canada, we are even more empowered to this end. Ninety per cent of the total land in Canada is provincial or federal Crown land. We are far from meeting our frontier. And in Ottawa, we have enviable access to parkland protected, for the moment, by the National Capital Commission. The downtown core has two rivers and a canal running through its centre. We are practically spitting distance from Gatineau Park, which covers more than 36,000

hectares and boasts more than 200 kms worth of trails for hiking and biking, and in the winter, snowshoeing and skiing. And until Russell becomes subdivided, we also have a wealth of local farmers producing everything from boar to beets. So why are our children sitting in front of the television and computer screens? How is it that they don’t understand our food source? And why, the heck, are they so fat? If you’re a neighbour, a teacher, a grandmother, a babysitter, or anyone that has influence over children, it’s time to take action. Talk about the issue. Organize a camping trip.

The Stittsville Village Association (SVA) has changed its meeting location. Since its formation, the SVA has met at the former Goulbourn Municipal Building at Stanley’s Corners just south of Stittsville. It is now going to be meeting in an upstairs meeting room at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex (GRC) on Shea Road in Stittsville. It tried out this new location at its directors’ meeting on Thursday, July 14 and has decided to continue at this new location. SVA president Marilyn Jenkins said that it is felt that this new GRC location will be more convenient for more Stittsville residents who might want to attend an SVA meeting.

This new location has a $40 rental fee which city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri is paying on behalf of the SVA. The former premises at the former Goulbourn Municipal Building had been provided to the SVA free of charge. It was suggested that the SVA might wish to meet at the new West Division police station on Huntmar Drive. However, it was felt that while meeting at the police station would be free of charge, the location would be even more out of the way than the previous site at the Goulbourn Municipal Building. City of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri pointed out that there are plans to make the GRC a wireless environment. If this happens and the SVA continues to meet there, it will be possible to webcast SVA meetings.

The future improvement of Fernbank Road from Terry Fox Drive west to Stittsville is an impending issue for the Stittsville Village Association (SVA). SVA director David Jenkins advised his fellow directors at the SVA meeting on Thursday, July 14 that improvement of Fernbank Road is something that the SVA is going to have to

be concerned about in the future. “It’s carrying a lot of traffic now and it’s only a country road,” he said about the existing Fernbank Road. There are plans to improve Fernbank Road from Terry Fox Drive east to Eagleson Road but there is nothing planned at present for Fernbarnk Road west of Terry Fox Drive. Mr. Jenkins said that there is nothing slated in the city of

Ottawa’s Transportation Master Plan, suggesting that perhaps the SVA should be asking the city to change the Transportation Master Plan to include enhancements to this stretch of Fernbank Road. This stretch of Fernbank Road from Terry Fox Drive to Stittsville runs alongside the Fernbank lands which are slated for development, with an ultimate population estimated at 30,000 or more.

The growing gap The Second in a Three-Part Series BY DAVID FLEISCHER AND NICOLE VISSCHEDYK


ou’re getting a lot of new neighbours over the next few years as Ontario grows, but no one is sure how to pay for them. All those new residents are going to need pipes to bring water to their homes, libraries and community centres in which to spend time and roads on which to drive. There isn’t enough money to build it all. The Greater Golden Horseshoe area’s population alone will swell from 8 million to 11.5 million by 2031, and the towns, villages and cities surveyed in a Metroland Special Report estimate they will need tens of billions of dollars they don’t have in order to accommodate that growth. Amalgamation in Ottawa in Jan. 2001 brought 11 urban and rural municipalities together under one government, with a total population of about 800,000. Ottawa expects that number to push past the one million mark this year. The city and contributing developers purchased or constructed $1.1 billion in new public assets in 2010 alone. Infrastructure is the underpinning of every Ontario community, the public facilities that form the physical backbone that supports daily life. But there’s a gap of about $100 billion between what’s needed and what’s available in funds. The Metroland Special Report shows that communities are already pressed to their limits, with many in debt due to lack of funds for existing infrastructure. Halton Region, for example, estimates it needs $8.6 billion to pay for infrastructure related to growth through to 2031. That includes 50 new elementary schools and new community centres, 2,200 kilometres of roads, six police stations and 1,100 hospital beds. It’s similar provincewide: • York Region estimates it will need $11.1 billion just for infrastructure to serve the 500,000 new residents expected by 2031. More than 80 per cent of the region’s budget is earmarked for infra-

structure related to growth over the next decade. • Peel’s capital budget over the next 10 years is just over $5 billion; • Kitchener says it will need nearly $240 million for growth just in the next decade, with only one-third of that total coming from development charges. The rest will have to come from taxes; • Niagara Falls says it will need more than $100 million in the next 10 years, with taxpayers on the hook for nearly half. Providing the physical premises for other provincially mandated programs is an issue. Schools have their own challenges. Allday kindergarten is still being phased in and is expected to cost about $1.5 billion a year provincewide. “We will only proceed if we have the infrastructure coming … we will draw a line in the sand,” said Halton Regional Chair Gary Carr, adding the province “has to decide if they’re going to invest in the future or not.” Fairness for Halton, a public campaign launched in 2007, demanded a new deal that would allow the region to develop without overburdening taxpayers. All municipalities want the province to create a new, secure infrastructure funds program, rather than the piecemeal system in use now. Building Together, the Ontario government’s 10-year infrastructure plan, was unveiled June 24 and, while short on specifics, pledges to find new ways to invest in transit and other municipal responsibilities, like affordable housing. Infrastructure Minister Bob Chiarelli says the government recognizes there are needs to be met in high-growth communities. But the issue is not just about funding. There is much tug-andpull over the place and responsibility of developers when a community grows. One touchy element is that the cost of projects associated with growth are supposed to come from charges paid by developers. But those fees or taxes paid by developers on each new commercial, industrial or housing unit they build are increasingly

inadequate. A report released by the Residential & Civil Construction Alliance of Ontario in March said government levies now account for up to 30 per cent of the cost of new housing in the GTA, proposing that something needs to change to facilitate growth. “You’ve got a good plan here and it makes a lot of sense, but you need to put infrastructure where you’ll get the best bang for the buck,” said RCCAO Executive Director Andy Manahan. There is a limit to how much the new-home market can absorb, he said.

Manahan agrees with municipal leaders that national programs for things such as transit and cities are crucial and that program-based, piecemeal funding won’t cut the mustard in the future. Also difficult for municipalities is that revisions to the Development Charges Act by the former Mike Harris government mean many projects are exempt from the charges. So, if a growing municipality needs a new hospital or a new city hall, taxpayers have to pay. Municipalities have repeatedly asked Premier Dalton McGuinty

to revise the act but he has made it clear it is not in his plans. Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak has also publicly said revisions are not on his radar, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be lobbying for change over the next few months, said Halton chair Carr, a former Tory MPP. His municipality of Halton is among the fastest growing in the country and councillors are not prepared to meet mandated growth targets if they don’t get help paying for that new population’s needs. “We’re not going to have the taxpayers of Halton pay the costs while the developers make the profit,” especially when home sales are brisk, he said. Home building is also booming in York Region, where the region has racked up a debt of $1.4 billion to build infrastructure it knows is needed while counting on development charges to pay for it later. Manahan, the Ontario construction association director, said the wave of growth is clearly already coming ashore, even if the funding hasn’t been settled. If new home and business costs are driven up, people will move further out, making the live/work/ play communities envisioned by Places to Grow much harder to achieve, he said.

Ottawa’s extensive (and expensive) road network LAURA MUELLER

Ottawa’s 5,700 kilometres of roads alone are worth $11 billion. To meet all of its roadconstruction needs, the city would need to spend closer to $130- to $140-million each year, according to Wayne Newell, the city’s general manager of infrastructure services. Instead, Ottawa is spending $42.7 million this year, but that is dropping to $23.9 million next year. By 2014, it will soar back up to $56.7 million.

David Chernushenko, the councillor for Capital Ward and environmentalist, decried the city’s insistence on constructing new roads. A plan to construct a $62-million, 1.2kilometre section of road to the Ottawa General Hospital caused significant outcry. “We keep building new roads when we don’t have enough money to maintain the roads we have now,” Chernushenko said. In the last term of council, Ottawa did take action regarding its infrastructure debt – but it didn’t last. Coun-

cil imposed a levy in 2006 that would add money to a reserve fund dedicated to tackling infrastructure renewal. “We stayed true to our principles for one year, and by the second year we had watered it down and by the third year we abandoned that principle,” said Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess, who wants to bring the levy back. The city’s approach is to do only what it can afford. That’s the wrong answer, Bloess said. “But the real issue should be: What do you need to do to maintain your infrastructure?”

The grade six school leaving ceremony for Holy Spirit Catholic School in Stittsville took on a personal note this year. It featured, as always, the presentation of certificates and individual awards. But there was more. Each of the 63 students, when called up to receive a certificate and, in some cases, an individual award as well, was the subject of a brief description read out by the teacher, outlining the student’s special talents and characteristics. Teacher Philip Walsh explained that this was done so that the parents, grandparents and others at the ceremony would get to know a little bit about each student. The descriptions outlined the personality and/or special talents of each student. Here’s some examples: “great sense of humour”; “has been known to set up a prank or two”; “works so well in groups”; “she willingly includes all her peers in everything she does at school”; “he has a real passion for science”; “he loves living the life of an adventure seeker”; “a kind and sharing student”; “a skilled piano player”; “can produce amazing drawings”; “his politeness, smile and friendly manner”; “you never know when a Jackson attack will occur”; “possesses a bubbly personality”; “adores all types of animals”; “loves to share his musical talents”; “he always treats others with respect”; “is like a breath of fresh air”; “has a bubbly personality which lights up a room whenever he walks in”; “shares great enthusiasm in the classroom”; “one of her favourite hobbies is shopping”; “is a fierce competitor in sports”; “his kind heart and welcoming smile”; “is one of the most engaged readers we have encountered at Holy Spirit”; “look for her as a member of Canada’s Olympic team”; “her take charge approach”; “a friendly soul who enjoys spending time with her friends”; “a gifted athlete”; “always wears a smile on her face”; and “he works hard on his school assignments.” Students who received special individual awards at the ceremony included Isabel Borsodi, French Award; Brendon Castrucci, Christian Excellence Award; Madison Clancy, Friendship Award; Jayden Cole, Overall Academic Award; Sean Devanderschueren, Male Athlete Award; Chloe Doherty, Female Athlete Award; Olivia Gillis, Overall Academic Award; Cameron Hickson, Male Athlete Award; Abagael Hudak, Christian Excellence Award; Kathleen Lecuyer, Creative Arts Award; Eric Liska, Glorida Sterling Effort Award; Alexandra Lord, French Award; Julian Lowery, French Award; Mitchell Lowery, Male Athlete Award; Amy MacNeil, Bert O’Connor Humanitarian Award; Nicole Murphy, Gloria Sterling Effort Award; Matthew Musgrave, French Award; Kaitlyn Oliver, Leadership Award; Caileigh Riddell, Female Athlete Award; Michael Rowan, Friendship Award; Sophie Shavrnoch, Bert O’Connor Humanitarian Award; Tierney Sterling, Gloria Sterling Effort Award; Donovan Taylor, Friendship Award; Danielle Theoret, Leadership Award; Sasha Thomson, Overall Academic Award; Lau-

ren Treffers, Creative Arts Award; Riley Weatherall, Christian Excellence Award; Matthew Smart, Kiwanis Citizenship Award; and Caitlyn Doiron, Director of Education Award. In her remarks at the school leaving ceremony, Holy Spirit Catholic School principal Margaret Skinner praised the grade six students for all of the extra responsibilities which they had assumed during the past school year, including assisting at hot dog days, being reading buddies, helping in the kindergarten classes and helping on milk days. She said that the leadership that the grade six students have exhibited during the past school year has made them role models for the younger students in the school. Ms. Skinner also praised the grade six students for their enthusiasm and determination. “don’t ever lose that love for life – living it to the fullest,” the principal told the students. Ottawa Catholic School Board trustee John Curry, in his remarks at the ceremony, pointed out just how important their elementary school education to date has been, giving them skills like reading and writing that they will be using for the rest of their lives. He said that while the students should rightfully be looking forward to grade seven and their high schools years which will be a new and exciting experience, they should also take a moment to reflect on all that they have learned in their elementary school years and the skills that will remain with them in the future. Besides the individual award recipients, other grade six students who received certificates at this school leaving ceremony were Jessica Aiello, Mia Andrew, Cassidy Brown, Tyler Brown, Zachary Brown, Matthew Curran, Alex Darling, Matthew Davis, Cody Dudley, Mathew Eardley, Carmelo Giampaolo, Willem Gooderham, Brent Goodwin, Kevin Johnson, Jackson Kelly, Jackson Kerbl, Olivia Keys, Ryan Leeder, Rachel Liston, Jamie Lynn, Mark MacIssac, Samuel Marincak, Chiara McCulloch, Natalie McGrath, Ben Oliver, Chloe Parker, Maria Russiello, Sylvie Russiello, Matteo Serafini, Danielle Sinclair, Elijah Sliwa, Jared Underwood, Bryanna Watt and Sarah Willis.

Stone soup fable comes alive

We service all Central Vacuum Systems



Hobin & Main Street, Stittsville 391463

The folk fable about stone soup came alive in Stittsville last week. It all happened for the visit of Rotary District Governor Bill Gray to the regular meeting of the Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville. But it was anything but a regular meeting. The Club greeted the District Governor with a host of costumed com-

munity characters, all of whom entered the meeting room carrying an ingredient for breakfast meal aka the “stone soup” that was being brewed up that morning. And who exactly made this Stittsville-style re-enactment of the fable of “stone soup” come alive on Tuesday, July 12. Well, there was the area’s own royalty, the Duke of Richmond, as portrayed by Stittsville’s own Robin Derrick.

Quality & timelessness are found in structures built with brick & stone. But after years in our harsh Canadian Climate, masonry needs a little refurbishing due to weathering.

There was the protective services, as portrayed by Stittsville volunteer firefighter Dawn Marincak and Ottawa Police Service inspector Michael Rice. Maureen Wesselingh was there, playing the role of a nurse, while Goulbourn Township Historical Society president Barbara Bottriell brought an historical aspect to the gathering, wearing her heritage dress.

Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville president Theresa Qadri, left, and Rotary District Governor Bill Gray, right, welcome Valerie Wright, centre as the newest member of the Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville at the Club’s meeting on Tuesday, July 12.

From page 18 Mitchell Honcoop, who is now a Venturer, wore a Scout uniform, joining his father Michael who was attired in his Scout leader’s dress. Lynn Honcoop joined her husband as did their two daughters, Megan and Lauren. The political side of things was not forgotten, as city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri carried one of the “stone soup” ingredients into the room, portraying himself as the village councillor. Stittsville News reporter/photographer had his press duds on including an old-style fedora with his press identification protruding from it. The press was also represented by Stittsville News editor John Curry who took part not as an editor but as a newspaper carrier boy, complete with a special edition of the newspaper proclaiming this special “stone soup” event happening in Stittsville. After all of these costumed performers had entered the room, each bringing with them an ingredient for the gathering’s breakfast, all a la stone soup legend, Rotary Club member Carolyn Clark read the story of the stone soup. There are a number of versions of this traditional folk fable but essentially the story revolves around people arriving in a village with nothing other than an empty cooking pot. Villages are unwilling to share any of their food with these newcomers

but when these newcomers fill their pot with water, drop in a large stone and place it over a fire, the villagers become curious. When they are told that the “stone soup” being made will taste wonderful, especially if some additional ingredients are added to improve the flavour, villages step forward, each giving a little bit of their own food to help out the “stone soup.” In the end, a delicious and nourishing pot of soup is enjoyed by everyone. This emphasis on “stone soup” arose when District Governor Bill Gray, who hails from the Cataraqui-Kingston Rotary Club, made it the focus of his message to the Clubs in the District upon becoming District Governor. He wants all Rotary Club members to contribute a pinch of their individual talents which, when combined together, will create a beautiful brew, helping Rotary meet its goals both in community service and in international action. “This is just unbelievable,” District Governor Bill Gray said in his remarks at the meeting, commenting on the enactment of the “stone soup” fable for the meeting. He commended the Stittsville Rotary Club for the way that it had involved various personalities from the community in the event. He told how he first thought of using the story of “stone soup” about a year ago as a way of showing how a community can come together and benefit which everyone contributes just a little bit to the overall project.

Mr. Gray suggested that “possibility” is an ingredient that should be in “stone soup,” as no one quite knows how possible something can be until it is tried. Other ingredients which he would like to see in Rotary’s “stone soup” include ownership (Rotary Club members should take ownership of projects and not leave them up to someone else to do), commitment (Rotary Club members should be willing to draw a line in the sand and take a stand) and hospitality (Rotary Club members should always involve people in their actions). “Those are the things I would like you to put in your soup,” Mr. Gray told members of the Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville, while also encouraging them to add any other ingredients that they think should be in the Rotary life experience. He urged Rotary Club members to strengthen their family and neighbour ties, to emphasize continuity (Polio is nearly eradicated from the world thanks to the ongoing efforts of Rotary) and be willing to make change. Mr. Gray praised the Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville for bursting with energy and enthusiasm. He also expressed pleasure at presiding over the induction of a new member in the Club, namely Valerie Wright, who formally joined the Club at the meeting. All of this “stone soup” meeting was recorded by Sandy Durocher of Navigator Communications of Stittsville.

Saturday, Sept. 10 will be Villagefest day in Stittsville this year. While the program has not yet been totally developed and finalized, some aspects of it are already known. There will be a talent show once again this year, with Evelyn Leroux once again agreeing to coordinate it. Preliminary plans also involve a “people parade” along Abbott Street, starting at Sacred Heart High School and ending at Village Square Park, the site of the Villagefest activities. It is envisioned that this people parade will include youngsters with decorated wagons, service club groups and community groups such as Girl Guides. One thing that is known about this year’s Villagefest is that there will be no

soap box derby held as part of it. This is because there is no one to organize the event this year and also because there is no major sponsor lined up. The Turpin car dealership had been the major sponsor in recent years. There will be further discussions next spring about whether this sanctioned soap box derby will be continued or not. Marilyn Jenkins, president of the Stittsville Village Association (SVA), which organizes Villagefest, says that it is hoped this year to have a tug of war event at Villagefest. She says as well that the focus of Villagefest this year will be on the history of Stittsville. Both the Goulbourn Museum and the Goulbourn Township Historical Society will be involved with Villagefest. There is also the possibility that there may be a display of antique clocks at this year’s Villagefest.

Canada Day cost $25,000 JOHN CURRY

The Stittsville Village Association (SVA) spent about $25,000 staging the Canada Day celebrations in Stittsville this year. The expenses should just about balance with the revenue collected from

various sources, SVA treasurer Claude Keon told the SVA executive at its July 14 meeting. Revenue included $5,000 from Heritage Canada, $5,000 from Mattamy Homes, $3,000 from Monarch Construction, $3,000 from the city of Ottawa, $1500 from Richcraft

Homes and $1500 from the Stittsville Shooting Range. Canada Day xxpenses included $5600 for fireworks, $2500 for sound and lighting, $8800 for the bounces and children’s games, $1200 for the band Take Five and $700 for Little Ray’s Reptiles.

Eddy and the Stingrays at Village Square SPECIAL TO THE NEWS Anyone who likes rock ‘n roll music should make a note of Thursday, Aug. 4. That’s when Village Square park in Stittsville will be movin’ and groovin’ to the sounds of Eddy and the Stingrays, a group which bills itself as Canada’s No. 1 Rock & Roll Show and Dance Band. This will be the first of the city of Ottawa’s “Concert in the Park” series this year, with two more planned for the subsequent Thursdays. Eddy and the Stingrays has a wide repertoire of rock ‘n

roll hits from the 1950’s and 1960’s such as Jailhouse Rock, Runaround Sue, Rock Around The Clock, Peppermint Twist, Pretty Woman, Kokomo, Whiter Shade of Pale … the list goes on and on. Eddy and the Stingrays have been together for 31 years now, having been formed in 1980. They are known for the showmanship, chorography and comedic flair, playing tunes made famous by such legends as Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, the Beach Boys and the Beatles. Renowned for their vocals and their musicianship, they perform doo-wop, tear jerkers and

rock ‘n roll standards. They also cover other musical styles such as the 1970’s classic rock tunes. Eddy and the Stingrays have played as far afield as Georgian, Massachusetts and Alberta. They have played with such stars as Chubby Checker, the Five Man Electrical Band and Trooper. The group has produced four CD’s including its latest, “Alive ‘n Jivin’,” a CD featuring music from live shows from late 2007. Eddy and the Stingrays is comprised of Eddy “Fingers” Fontana who does lead vocals and lead guitar; Frankie California, who plays bass guitar and

backs the vocals; Buddy Love who plays the guitar and does lead and backing vocals; and Tommy Schnare, the drummer, who also does lead and backing vocals. This Eddy and the Stingrays concert at Village Square will be held on Thursday, Aug. 4 starting at 7 p.m. As in previous years, there will be a youth BBQ fundraiser at 6 p.m. Admission is free but donations for the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) will be accepted.

NURSERY SCHOOL GRADS Friends Kayla McDonald, Addison Baird and Nora Lacroix, from left to right, celebrate their “graduation” at the Richmond Cooperative Nursery School on Friday, June 24.

Cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) initiated at the scene by family members prevented a drowning tragedy in Stittsville on Sunday, July 17. At about 4:30 p.m., the Ottawa Paramedic Service was called to a home in Stittsville in response to a near drowning. A young child was located in the home’s pool by his parents. The child was not breathing and was blue in colour, at which point the family initiated CPR. The child responded to chest compressions, vomited and began to breath. When the paramedics arrived on the scene, the child was lethargic and crying. The paramedics initiated treatment which included spinal immobilization, oxygen therapy, cardiac monitoring, re-warming and supportive measures in order to stabilize the child who was taken to hospital. The child was in stable condition upon arrival at the hospital.

What’s up at Richmond Legion WENDY RYAN Special to the News

Branch barbeques were held on Friday, June 17 with about 90 diners and again on Friday, July 8 with over 115 in attendance. The turnout totally surprised us and we ran out of salad and potatoes. Apologies go to those who missed out on these. Thanks to Tom Louks and Pat Sullivan for manning the barbeques on June 17 and to Jack Lemyre and Jim Gleason for doing the grilling on July 8. Thanks to all of the kitchen workers on both of these days. Thank you to everyone who came out for these dinners. Your support is greatly appreciated. Upcoming barbeques will be on July 22, Aug. 5, Aug. 19, Sept. 2 and Sept. 23. Just to clarify: if you know that you are going to attend the barbeque, please give Mavis Lewis a call at 613-838-2749 a day or two before to reserve your ticket or call the Legion at 613-838-2644 on the day of the barbeque to let us know that you are coming. This helps give us an idea of how much food should be on hand. However, prior notice, while helpful, is not absolutely necessary. You are still more than welcome to join us if you decide to attend only at the last minute. The Richmond Legion hosted the zone golf tournament on Saturday, June 11. Everyone who golfed was invited to the Legion Hall for dinner after the golfing. About 44 players enjoyed a great steak dinner. Thanks to Tom Louks for doing the barbequing.

Motorists using Johnwoods Street may continue to have a bumpy ride – or not. Residents on Johnwoods Street and vicinity have been surveyed by city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri on their views about whether the existing speed humps should be removed or not. At the July 14th executive meeting of the Stittsville Village Association, councillor Qadri reported that 66 residents had responded to remove the speed humps while six had answered that they should remain in place. Councillor Qadri said that the city’s traffic department was also urging that the speed humps remain in place due to planned development that is to take place in the area and will impact traffic on Johnwoods Street. Councillor Qadri admitted that he is leaning toward the removal of the speed humps. These existing speed humps have been in place for a number of years, implemented as a traf-

Church Directory

fic control measure on the street when it was subject to significant traffic pressure as the only north/south road between Hazeldean Road and Maple Grove Road in the stretch between Terry Fox Drive and Carp Road. This situation has since changed due to the opening up of Huntmar Drive from Hazeldean Road to Maple Grove Road with the development of the Fairwinds subdivision. In addition, the reconstruction of Hazeldean Road to four lanes should reduce traffic using Johnwoods Street. Plans for major subdivisions with access onto Johnwoods Street are in the works but have not yet come to reality. When these subdivisions are developed, there will be an increased traffic load on Johnwoods Street. Speed humps, while slowing down traffic, can cause vehicle damage and can impact the response time of emergency vehicles. These existing speed humps on Johnwoods Street are one of two such situations in Stittsville. There are also speed humps on Renshaw Avenue just west of Hobin Street.
