Dedication to community being honoured with naming proposals Public comment on naming proposals closes March 8

the age of 34, Susanna became a widow and was left to tend to the farm and to raise seven children on her own. “To help support her young family, Susanna began offering rooms and food to travellers in her log home. She was so prosperous that the 1861 census listed her occupation as ‘Innkeeper’. With the success of her venture, she was able to purchase additional land, and BY BRIAN DRYDEN she and her eldest son John built ‘Kemp’s brian.dryden@metroland.com Tavern’, as it came to be known, which became a base for the local militia, ever at the It’s not a done deal yet, but a move is afoot ready in case of Fenian attacks. to futher honour Stittsville’s past by recognizing the contributions of a number of residents by naming some parks and a meeting “I am particularly thrilled about room after key people in the evolution of the community. this set of commemorative Five naming proposals for Stittsville were recently on the agenda of the commemora- naming proposals as many tive naming committee (CNC), one of which of them were submitted by is all but certain now and the four others have been forwarded to the consultation residents of the Stittsville stage of the process. community during the According to local councillor Shad Qadri, a proposal to update the name of Bell submission process of the Memorial Park to the W.J.

SHAD QADRI approval before going to city council for the final approval. COMMENT BY MARCH 8

As well, there are four other naming proposals up for review that are now in the comment stage, which ends March 8. “I am particularly thrilled about this set of commemorative naming proposals as many of them were submitted by residents of the Stittsville community during the submission process of the Stittsville Street Renaming Project,” Qadri said. “As such, I encourage all residents to share their thoughts.” Among the naming proposals is to honour Susanna Kemp’s historical significance to the Stittsville community, by naming a future park, located in the Abbottsville development, “Susanna Kemp Park”. According to background information submitted with the naming proposal, Susanna, who emigrated to Canada in 1819 with her parents from Ireland, married William Kemp in 1827 and a year later, they began to farm the land that William had received as a Free Grant Military Emigrant. In 1841 at

“Their finely-crafted stone house still stands as Cabotto’s Restaurant on Hazeldean Road. Although the Great Fire of 1870 wiped out much of Stittsville and saw the town subsequently rebuilt further to the south, Susanna remained on her family’s land until her death in 1890. Her home is truly one of Goulbourn Township’s architectural gems.” “After William’s death she kept everything going,” Barbara Bottriel told Metroland Media of Susanna Kemp’s significance to the history of the community. The other naming proposals include recognition of Grace Thompson’s historical significance to the community of Stittsville, by naming a meeting room in the Stittsville branch of Ottawa’s library the “Grace Thompson Meeting Room”. Thompson, born in 1913, was instrumental in the formation of many of the village’s societies that still exist today. Keen to contribute to her community, she and her husband Emerson, being avid gardeners, helped form the Stittsville Goulbourn Horticultural

Society (SGHS) in 1962, which still thrives today. For her involvement with the SGHS, the Ontario Horticultural Society honoured her with a special service award in 1991, and with a lifetime membership in 1992. She also helped found the Goulbourn Township Historical Society, the Goulbourn Jubilee Singers, the Greely Players Theatre Group, and was a volunteer with many organizations, including the Stittsville library and St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church Women’s Missionary Society. Mary Durling’s extensive community service is behind a request to name Cypress Gardens Park at 33 Elm Crescent “Mary Durling Park”. According to Anne Murphy, who submitted the proposal, Durling was well known within the community where she canvassed and campaigned on behalf of numerous charities and foundations. She was named Stittsville Senior Citizen of the Year in 2009 for her contribution to Stittsville life through her charity work and as a member of the Ladies’ Auxilliary of the Royal Canadian Legion (Branch 618, since 1970). “Mary was considered by many to be the ‘heart and soul of Stittsville’ and an inspiration to those around her,” Murphy’s background information states. INTEGRAL PART OF STITTSVILLE LIFE

As well, Lee Boltwood’s extensive community service is behind an effort to name a future park in the Abbottsville development the Lee Boltwood Park. According to the naming proposal submitted by Penny Horeczy, Boltwood has been an integral part of Stittsville life, providing gardening advice at venues including the Central Experimental Farm, Carp Farmers’ Market, Richmond Fair and many events in Stittsville’s own Village Square Park. Boltwood has also served on the boards of the Goulbourn Middle School Parents’ Council, Goulbourn Library and Goulbourn Historical Society, where she is currently a director-at-large and has been a member since 2004.. The naming applications are now undergoing a 30 day consultation period. Comments will be accepted online and must be received no later than March 8. To submit comments and to review biographies of the individuals being commemorated, go to the City of Ottawa website.

‘Best overall,’ ‘most meatiest’ and ‘most spicey’ in chili cook-off (notice the change from the upstairs hall previously) at the Stittsville Legion Hall. This event is open to everyone.

BY BARB VANT’SLOT Special to the News

It was a "chili" evening at the Stittsville Legion Hall last Saturday, Feb. 11. It may have been a little cold or chilly outside but it was inside the hall where it was really "chili" as a chili cook-off was held with six entries. And when it was all said and done and the judges' decisions had been rendered, it was Joni Sabourin's chili that grabbed first place as the "best overall" chili. Second place went to Brian Doran's chili which was judged to be the "most meatiest." Surprisingly, this was the first time that Brian had made chili. And third place went to Mike Powell for his chili which was judged as the "most spicey." Mike has made chili before but admits that he does not follow any recipe. Rather he just throws things into the mix. Judges for this chili cook-off were: Theresa Qadri, Pat Berrea and radio personality Randall Moore. Later in the evening, Stittsville's classic rock cover band the StittsVillains performed at the Legion Hall. The next free afternoon of live music at the Stittsville Legion Hall happens on Sunday, Feb. 26 from 3 to 5 p.m. featuring John Belisle. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Customer service award for Amsted SPECIAL TO THE NEWS

Amsted Design-Build of Stittsville has been recognized for exceptional customer service. The full-service design-build company has received GuildQuality's 2017 Guildmaster Award for consistently delivering superior customer care and service. Amsted is one of only four Canadian companies in the home building, remodelling or contracting industry to receive this award with its highest distinction rating. There are hundreds of firms across North America who seek a Guildmaster Award each year. In selecting the 2017 Guildmaster Award recipients, GuildQuality, a third-party surveying company, reviewed thousands of survey responses submitted by customers. Two primary metrics which were considered in selecting the Guildmaster Award recipients were the percentage of customers stating that they would recommend the business to a friend and the percentage of customers who responded. Amsted achieved a recommendation rate of 100 per cent from customers surveyed by GuildQuality. In the home building, remodelling and real estate industries, the average customer recommendation rate for businesses is about 70 per cent. To receive a Guildmaster Award, a business

must achieve a recommendation rate of 90 per cent or better, a rate which Amsted exceeded. Amsted president Steve Barkhouse noted that the Guildmaster Award holds a special meaning for Amsted, especially since it involves an independent third party surveying the firm's customers who can freely express any complaints during the process. "This award is proof positive that our efforts in exceeding expectations are paying off," Barkhouse says. "Each time we get back that five star review or 100 per cent recommendation rate, it's exciting for us - and this award is the culmination of all of those positive responses." Amsted Design-Build has been renovating homes in the Ottawa area since 1989. Recently the company was named 2016 Renovator of the Year by the Ontario Home Builders' Association for the second consecutive year. GuildQuality serves over 2,300 residential construction professionals with customer satisfaction surveying software that assesses customer service. The primary requirement for receiving a Guildmaster Award is exemplary customer service as demonstrated by an extremely high customer recommendation rate. Amsted Design-Build is located at 7725 Flewellyn Rd. at Munster Road, west of Stittsville.

OPINION

Connected to your community

Democracy, community under threat

I

f you are reading this, then you should be interested in the recentlyreleased report commissioned by the federal government dealing with ways to address the current upheaval in Canada’s media. The report, authored by respected Canadian journalist Edward Greenspon on behalf of the public policy forum think-tank, contains 12 recommendations meant to strengthen the Canadian journalism landscape and ensure that it can continue to provide the scope and depth of reporting that Canadians have come to expect from their media. This report is particularly relevant with regard to Canada’s print media, which is faced with shrinking ad and subscription revenues and job cuts. The report sees this as a threat to our democracy. After all, if we lack the information to know what is going on, there will be no informed electorate and our democracy will not function as it should, particularly with the advent of fake news or so-called alternative facts. Another scenario that is equally worrying, though, is the role of the media — and, more particularly, community newspapers — in the creation and promo-

tion of “community.” Part of being a community is knowing what is going on locally, is knowing who are your neighbours, is taking pride in being part of that defined space that is known as “your community.” Indeed, Canada can be viewed as a vast community of communities with common values and ideals. And what is a significant feature of a local community? Yes, that’s right — you are holding it in your hands right now. The community newspaper. A robust community newspaper industry is one way of protecting and growing our local communities. Vibrant communities are, we believe, just as vital to the future of our society as is a robust democracy. Communities are the stage on which people primarily come together. That’s why all Canadians must take seriously proposals to strengthen our journalism vehicles in this country, including community newspapers. A media in crisis endangers both our democracy and our communities. With two such pillars of our society being under threat from pressures on the media these days, taking steps to assist the media in meeting these current challenges should be of interest to all Canadians.

Tennis comeback may get traction from Davis Cup

M

ost of the headlines that came out of the weekend of Davis Cup tennis in Ottawa dealt with the disqualification of a young Canadian player, Denis Shapovalov. Seventeen years old, losing badly and in a rage over his own poor performance, Shapovalov whacked a ball after losing a point and accidentally struck the umpire in the eye. Clearly remorseful, he was nonetheless disqualified and, with the disqualification, Canada was eliminated from Davis Cup competition by Great Britain. This was sad, but it did provide a teachable moment for parents all across the nation. See what happens when you lose your temper? Having a teachable moment is always useful, but it’s too bad that this particular incident obscured some of the more positive aspects

is that tennis is on its way back. Who knows why? The Davis Cup matches, played, appropriately enough, in a converted hockey arena, should help the new tennis boom. The large crowds appreciated how well-organized the event was and the high calibre of the tennis, despite the absence of each nation’s biggest names. The hockey arena turned out to be ideal for viewing tennis. The audience was intensely partisan, albeit with a small but vocal U.K. contingent. The roars from each side increased in volume, length and intensity as the matches progressed. But all it took was for the umpire to say, “Thank you,” and the noise paused completely for the next serve. You could hear the hum of the air conditioning. It’s amazing to think that human beings, thousands of them, can behave EDITORIAL: MANAGING EDITOR: Theresa Fritz, 613-221-6225 theresa.fritz@metroland.com NEWS EDITOR: John Curry john.curry@metroland.com - 613-221-6152 REPORTER/PHOTOGRAPHER: Brian Dryden 613-221-6162 brian.dryden@metroland.com

like that. Another heartening thing about the crowd was its diversity, particularly in age. The number of kids gave you hope that another surge might be on the way. With luck, hard work and good guidance, young Dennis Shapovalov could be the one who leads the way.

Notice of Proposed Official Plan and Zoning By-Law Amendments For secondary dwelling units (coach houses) In accordance with the Planning Act and Section 5.2.3 of the Official Plan for the City of Ottawa, notice is hereby provided that Zoning By-law Amendment and Official Plan Amendment proposals have been initiated by the Planning, Infrastructure and Economic Development Department of the City of Ottawa. The proposed Official Plan Amendment (OPA) and Zoning By-law Amendment (ZBA) affect residential properties city wide. The purpose of the proposed OPA is to adjust an existing policy within Section 3.1 of the Official Plan to address issues with the policy direction permitting coach houses. The purpose of the proposed ZBA is to provide clarification to existing performance standards which implement coach houses as a permitted residential land use in the City of Ottawa. Changes to Section 142 will provide clearer performance standards to allow coach houses. The land to which the proposed OPA (file No. D01-01-17-0004) applies is also subject to the proposed ZBLA (file No. D02-02-17-0009). To review additional information and materials related to the proposed amendments, please contact the undersigned planner or go to ottawa.ca/coachhouse. The City of Ottawa would like to receive comments regarding the proposed amendments.

Happenings around the village of Richmond BY JOHN CURRY john.curry@metroland.com

Family Day Weekend is coming and so are two family-related events at the Richmond branch of the Ottawa Public Library. Both are being held Saturday (Feb. 18). A Family Tree Fun event for children ages 3 to 6 years old Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. with stories, songs and activities, all focused on family. Registration is required. There's also Family Tree crafts and activities for children aged 7-12 years old. This is a drop-in program (no registration required) which will begin at 10:30 a.m. For more information about these events at the Richmond library branch, check out the website at www.biblioottawalibrary.ca (Richmond branch programs). Ottawa city council's agriculture and rural affairs committee has approved amendments to the Village of Richmond Secondary

Plan that will require any new development located within the village's development and industrial lands to be connected with public communal well services. In addition, development in the industrial lands must connect to the central waste water collection system. This amendment removes an exception that was put in place in 2010 to allow some limited development using private services. This was done since the servicing plans for the village had not been fully planned out at that time. The organizing committee for Rich-

mond's 200th anniversary celebrations in 2018 will be holding three fundraising events in May: a garage sale; Car-tastrophe, which will involve head shaving and hair cutting; and A Taste of Richmond, involving various restaurants in the village. If you have items to donate to the garage sale or wish to sponsor the participation of Tino Bevacqua in the Car-tastrophe event or want to buy a ticket for A Taste of Richmond, contact Tino at 613-838-3466.... The next free Open Table community dinner at St. John’s Anglican Church is on Sunday, Feb. 25. Doors open at 4:30 p.m.

Richmond Forcemain Project Update As we begin Canada’s 150th birthday year, the City has many exciting events and projects planned for Canada’s Capital celebrations. Last year, during my mid-term TownHall meetings, I detailed several of these exciting attractions including: Ignite 150, Agri 150, Red Bull Crashed Ice and the Juno Awards and Juno week. In addition to these special events, I thought I would take this opportunity to update the residents of Richmond and Munster on a not so flashy project. Progress on the Richmond Forcemain has been progressing steadily over the last few months. City staff through my office, have been updating residents that are directly impacted by the on-going construction. To date, this project is on time and on budget. Minor work has been completed on the 300mm bypass Forcemain. Last week, the 300mm bypass line was commissioned to discharge sewage for a few hours into lagoon “C”. This happened on schedule without incident and all safety precautions were taken to ensure public health and safety. Starting this week, sewage will be pumped into Lagoon “C” using the 300mm bypass line, as the primary Forcemain is repaired and replaced. This work is expected to take two to three weeks. Residents will continue to see work all along the construction site next to the Jock River along Royal York Street and on Eagleson Road. Trails and parking lots around the Richmond Lagoons have been closed for the duration of the construction project. If you are interested in seeing past updates, or have any questions or concerns, you can contact David Brown in my office at David. Brown2@ottawa.ca or contact him by phone at 613-580-2424-25443.

Councillor’s Column Keeping You Informed By Shad Qadri, Councillor Ward Six Stittsville City of Ottawa

February 16, 2017 Councillor’s Column Keeping You Informed

Central Public Library Dear Residents, Last week at City Council, Council members approved in principal a new central library joint facility with Library and Archives Canada. What this means is that the location of the library will now be at 557 Wellington. In addition, a representative from Library and Archives Canada attended the Council meeting to share their concurrence with the joint project. Next steps will include approving the design of the facility as well as the funds which should be coming back to Council at some point in June once funding partners are identified and informed. I was among the 21 councillors along with the Mayor in support of this motion. I do believe that the new Ottawa Central Library will be an excellent fit at 557 Wellington near the upcoming Lebreton Flats development – truly reflecting the “central” aspect of its name being in close proximity to Light Rail Transit, the public at large, and the millions of tourists that come to Ottawa each year. The location was selected following an extensive process of project study, analysis and public consultation, and expert evaluation of 12 possible sites. With the arrival of the internet and ebooks, public libraries have been criticized as out-dated luxuries we can no longer afford or that books are becoming a thing of the past. However, I firmly believe that they are necessary conglomerates of information that we, as a society, cannot afford to do without. The new library looks to the future and is to be designed as a hub for meetings, social gatherings and interaction, and programming for the arts and culture. In addition, the Ottawa Public Library (OPL) has been adapting programming to accommodate the more modern needs of residents and new Canadians who require things such as internet access to keep up in the growing competitive online job market. Libraries may no longer be the places of indulgence they once were but they are a place for life-learning and growth. This new location will not just be a destination but a recognizable and talked about landmark for anyone who uses or visits it. Similar to the renovations at Lansdowne Park, this issue has discussed for many years by our community and surrounding neighbourhoods. It is time to move forward with this significant city-building project. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mayor Watson, the Chair of the Ottawa Public Library Board - Councillor Tim Tierney, and the Library Board for all of their hard work on this item. What are your thoughts on the new central library? I would love to hear some of your ideas for programming to ensure that this new facility truly brings Ottawa’s informational facilities into the twenty-first century. Email me at Shad.Qadri@ottawa.ca. Commemorative Naming Proposals for Stittsville – Comments Requested Last week, the Commemorative Naming Committee (CNC) met and discussed 5 commemorative naming proposals for Stittsville. I am happy to announce that the 60 day comment period has ended and the renaming of Bell Memorial Park to the W.J. Bell Rotary Peace Park will now be presented to the City’s Community and Protective Services Committee (CPSC) for approval. After which time, it will be submitted to City Council for final approval. The CNC also approved consideration for the commemorative naming applications: Mary Durling Park (formerly Cypress Gardens Park) located at 33 Elm (Brae) Crescent, Lee Boltwood Park and Susanna Kemp Park to be located at future parks in the Abbottsville Development, and the Grace Thompson Meeting Room at the Stittsville Library. Each application will be undergoing a 30 day consultation period and pending committee approval, will then be presented to the CPSC and City Council for final approval with the exception of the Grace Thompson Meeting Room which will be presented to the Ottawa Public Library Board meeting for final approval following consultation period. I am particularly thrilled about this set of commemorative naming proposals as many of them were submitted by residents of the Stittsville community during submission process of the Stittsville Street Renaming Project. As such, I encourage all residents to share their thoughts. Comments will be accepted online and must be received no later than March 8th, 2017.

History takes centre stage at library BY BRIAN DRYDEN brian.dryden@metroland.com

The past comes to life at the Stittsville branch of the public library Saturday, when the facility hosts a Heritage Day event being overseen by the Goulbourn Township Historical Society. “It’s a fun event,” explained the library’s Bonnie Foster Abel. “They dress up in costumes, and have a

According to the society’s website, the event will shine a spotlight on odd activities in the area from the past. “Have you heard stories about ghosts, murder, cemeteries and other unknowns in your community? Attend this event on February 18 to discover in full detail all of the

grisly or odd activities that have taken place right here in your own backyard. There will displays with court records, photos and written accounts of these unknowns,” the society says of the event. The Feb. 18 event is from 1 to 4 p.m. and is free to attend. Complimentary refreshments will be available and there is ample parking and handicapped accessible parking at the library.

Retired journalist honoured for his contribution to Stittsville community SPECIAL TO THE NEWS

Retired Stittsville News photographer and journalist John Brummell was honoured for his contribution to the Stittsville and Goulbourn community over the years at a tribute night at the Lions Hall in Stittsville on Feb. 11.

City of Ottawa Stittsville ward Coun. Shad Qadri perhaps put it best when in his remarks at the event he thanked John for his contribution to the community, whether through his lens or his pen or just saying hello to those he met. He said that Stittsville is a passionate and compassionate community and that John has epitomized these feelings over the years. He said that it was fitting that John moved to the community of Stittsville in 1967 which was Canada's 100th birthday year and now he has retired 50 years later in 2017, Canada's 150th birthday year. The councillor said that John showed that he cared about the community and that he froze the memories of people in time through his photos. In presenting John with a certificate of congratulations, Coun. Qadri praised John for his willingness to photograph people of all ages in the community, saying that John's work not only reminds everyone of the importance of photos but also reminds people of the stories that these photos tell. The Stittsville District Lions Club, which hosted the evening, presented John with a photograph of himself surrounded by signed messages from those in attendance at the event. Lion Beth Lewis, one of the chief organizers of the tribute night, told how John Brummell had arrived in Stittsville in 1967, by then working for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). He retired from the RCMP in 1993 and then started to work for the Stittsville News where he covered the community's activities ranging from 4H to figure skating to school graduations to fun days.

"He was always out in the community," Beth said with regard to John Brummell's work as a community photographer and journalist. She told how John had been president of the Stittsville District Lions Club, had served on the Goulbourn Township Historical Society's Board of Directors and was involved with the Hazeldean Masonic Lodge. Stittsville News editor John Curry, who worked with John throughout his tenure with the Stittsville News, recited a poem that he wrote featuring John's love of his John Deere riding tractor. He also recounted a number of special memories involving John such as; their trip to Kentucky to visit with hockey player Matt Bradley and dressing up for skits to por-

tray the history of the Stittsville News and to perform at a tribute night for former Goulbourn politician Janet Stavinga. He presented John with a John Deere bucket along with some other John Deere items such as a pair of gloves and a hat. In his remarks at the tribute night, John Brummell recalled working on the construction of the Lions Hall where the tribute night was taking place. He thanked all those who attended the event, saying that he was fortunate to be able to cover activities in numerous schools in the area over the years. He said that he covered youth who went on to play in the National Hockey League and also youth who ended up performing in New York City.

Second book for photographer Sylvie Sabourin of Stittsville BY JOHN CURRY john.curry@metroland.com

It's title, Eternelle Impermanence, may seem like an oxymoron but to author/photographer Sylvie Sabourin of Stittsville, there is no contradiction as she says that lots of things are eternal but not permanent.

An example of this is the collection of photographs in her just-released book that bears this title. A photograph captures a scene, fixing it forever in time. So it is eternal in that sense. But there will never be another photograph exactly the same as something such as the lighting or camera angle will change. So there is an imperma-

nence there. Hence, eternity and impermanence can exist together. And that's the case with all of the 107 photographs and accompanying texts which fill this new book. These photographs and texts are expressions of both the idea of eternity and the idea of impermanence. Indeed, Sylvie hopes that the title

of the book makes people curious about the book and that they find it appealing and interesting. This is Sylvie's second book featuring photographs accompanied by texts of explanation. Her first book, Emotions, was published in 2011 and is still available. In fact, a hardcover edition has recently become available. Sylvie had the photographs and texts for Eternelle Impermanence ready to go in 2013 but it has taken her since then to find an appropriate publisher. Photographic books tend to cost more to produce because of the need for colour on every page, but eventually the Societe des Ecrivains took on the publishing task. She feels that it was just a case of "right time, right place" for her when she submitted the book to Societe des Ecrivains and the response was "yes" to publishing the work. This time, unlike with the first book, Sylvie is not out there on her own marketing and selling the book. The Societe des Ecrivains is marketing and distributing the book, indeed on both sides of the Atlantic, as it features photographs taken both in Canada and in France, where Sylvie visits in the summer. Half of the photographs in the book have been taken in France while the other half have been taken in Canada, including some in the Stittsville area such as along the Trans Canada Trail. Initially, Sylvie had wanted to call the book "100" with 100 photographs featured. But as she worked on it, she went beyond the 100 mark, ending up with 107 photographs with accompanying texts. Photographs in the book feature architecture such as churches and monasteries, mostly taken in France, as well as landscapes and nature photos, mostly taken in Canada. The text explaining each photograph is printed in both English and French, making it a bilingual book. The text varies, sometimes explaining what Sylvie saw when she took the photo, or perhaps what prompted her to take the photo or explaining what the photo is telling her. Sylvie had always planned to produce more than one book, as she has much to say with her photography. She views this latest book as "a companion book" that is not meant to be read cover to cover and then put aside. Rather, it is a "go-to book" that a person will open and view and read a page or so on a particular day, ab-

sorbing the image and message, and then return to the book on another day to read and view some more. It is a companion, meant to be there when a person has a few moments to open and enjoy it. The format of this new book is different than that used for Emotions. The new book is square so that each photograph, whether taken horizontally or vertically, is reproduced in the book at the same size. With the larger format of Emotions, the vertical photographs were printed larger in size than the horizontal ones. Eternelle Impermanence can be purchased directly from Sylvie at Sylviesabourin@rogers.com or ordered in print or pdf format on the Societe des Escrivains website at https://www. societedesecrivains.com/eternelle-impermamance.html/. It is also available in bookstores in Canada and France, selling for $44.95 plus GST in Canada. The book will also be available and signed by Sylvie Sabourin when she takes part in a signing event at the Salon du Livre de l'Outaouais in Gatineau from Feb. 23 to 26. She will be there on the Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Friday from 10:30 a.m. to noon and also from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m., Saturday from noon to 3 p.m., and Sunday from noon to 1:30 p.m. The Salon du Livre de l'Outaouais is at the Palais des congress de Gatineau at 50 rue de Maisonneuve in the Hull sector of Gatineau.

Three new members on RVA Board of Directors the RVA annual general meeting Feb. 7. Board members John Shearer, who was vicepresident, and Jarett Brown have stepped down The board of directors of the Richmond from the board. Returning board members who were re-electVillage Association (RVA) said farewell to two members and welcomed three new members at ed at the annual general meeting included Anne BY JOHN CURRY

Matlar, Brian Kusiewicz, David Proulx, Lee Hodgkinson, Liana Medynski, Roland Rotter, Tino Bevacqua and William Mayda. Joining the board are Lianne Neufeld, Ryan Pinet and Justyna Lawrence, giving the board 11 members. The board can have as many as 12 directors, and appoint an additional member during the coming year if it so wishes. The RVA board meets about eight times a year to provide governance over RVA activities. The board members serve a one-year term until the next annual general meeting. It is the board of directors which selects the RVA's officers for the coming year. The new 2017 board met following the annual general meeting to select its officers. David Proulx will be the president for the coming year while Lee Hodgkinson will serve as vice-president. Justyna Lawrence is taking over as the board's secretary, a role held by Roland Rotter for the past board.

Annette Matlar is continuing in the role as treasurer of the board. Once again at this year's annual general meeting, Doug Arnold served as the elections officer. There was no voting as the directors were all elected by acclamation. An election only takes place if more people are nominated for positions on the Board than there are positions available (namely 12). It was pointed out that every resident and business owner/manager in Richmond over the age of 18 is automatically a member of the RVA. The RVA's mission is to foster and encourage village identify and pride; to identify issues critical to the well-being of Richmond residents and to advocate positions that are in Richmond's best interest; to promote local business and support improved community services; and to identify, propose, organize and manage projects that enhance the natural beauty and recreational resources of Richmond.

The most challenging way to make a difference, may be the most rewarding. John Curry/Metroland

"It starts with the academics," principal Anderson said in explaining what South Carleton is all about. He said that the school has high standards and expectations about achievement, pointing out that SCHS tries to foster not just smart students but also provide a place where each student can be successful.

Singer Bruce MacGregor wore a red Ottawa Lynx jersey from a Canada Day event long ago featuring the Lynx ball team, now long gone from the Ottawa scene. Other performers wore something red, ranging from Chris Sandes’ red hat to Brian MacMillan’s red socks. And this group delivered music that went right to the heart of its audience of seniors, with songs such as “For Me and My Gal” from the 1942 movie of the same name, starring Gene Kelly and Judy Garland, “A White Sport Coat” which was a 1957 hit for Marty Robbins, and “Moon River,” an Andy Williams hit that was the theme song for the 1961 movie “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” which starred Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard. The Stittsville Seniors Community by Revera also held an open house in conjunction with this fundraiser. Brandi Hornsby, the director of culinary services, provided food samples for visitors. Each retirement community operated by Revera such as the Stittsville Seniors Community on Stittsville Main Street was challenged to hold a fundraiser for The Heart Institute sometime in the month of February. The Stittsville Seniors Community by Revera chose Feb. 8 as the date for its fundraising effort.

At Switzer’s Auction Centre, 25414 Highway 62 South, Bancroft, ON

It's called Visions and Illusions, an art exhibition now on display at the Sacred Heart High School art gallery on the second floor at the school in Stittsville. It features artwork produced by the 29 students in the Grade 12 art course, some in colour and some in black and white. Each work on display is accompanied by a written description explaining the materials and technique used by the student artist. Student Sophie Shavrnoch has two pieces in the exhibition, a 48-by-36inch mixed media work entitled Society's Angel and a graphite pencil on paper work entitled Aunty Fatima. Society's Angel is meant to display the conflicting sides of today's expectations for a female's physical perfection. It is a mixed media work with the background a mass of text to signify society in general. The idea behind the work is that some women do not know that they are beautiful but they are. She gave the subject wings created from feathers to convey the idea that she is a beautiful angel. Sophie say it took a long time to create the artwork because of its size, but she's very happy with the result, capturing her overall concept and the idea of an angel. Aunty Fatima is a work of photorealism featuring the wrinkled face of an elderly woman in a Moroccan village. Sophie's focus in this drawing was to deal with the concept of beauty and the illusion of beauty. It took her more than 40 hours to complete but she is happy with the way it turned out, with the work capturing the "wrinkles and contours" on the woman's face. Sophie hopes to enrol in a commerce program at university in the fall, with the goal of working in the fashion industry. But she hopes to continue with her art on the side, using the skills that she has learned during her time at Sacred Heart.

She says her art has allowed her to venture into realms of creativity and has allowed her to work with colours and shapes as she has grown and learned over her four years from the initial stick figures she produced in Grade 9. Student Alexandra Lord also has two pieces of artwork in the exhibition. One, entitled A Moment of Balance, is a black and white graphite pencil-on-paper work meant to show the importance of emotional balance in life. It features two faces that are joined, with one having a composed and contented expression that appears to have everything under control while the other is contorted as the person is obviously upset. These two expressions are contrasting but morph together to indicate that a balance of emotion is needed in life. Alexandra is happy with how the work turned out. "I'm into weird portraits," she says, while noting that the work also conveys a message. Alexandra's A Fragile City is a mixed media work that is meant to address the strong influence of media in the world and how it can sever the connection between humans. It is a New York City Times Square scene. A Fragile City was Alexandra's first foray into using mixed media. She found that it forced her to be more open minded and to take risks. She found that the use of polyfilla gave the artwork texture and a 3D effect, allowing the viewer to feel that he or she is in that place. Alexandra hopes to go into architecture and wants to continue with her art in her free time. She feels the creativity that she has developed in her art will help her in her architecture studies, although she admits that architecture is more mathematical than creative. The Grade 12 student art exhibition Visions and Illusions is on display at the Sacred Heart High School art gallery until March 3.

If you are ready to take the next step in your career, email your resume today to Jerome Taylor, Jr. at jerome.taylor@thetire.ca, or call 613-623-6551, ext. 3901. John Curry/Metroland

Gathering to pray and to act in solidarity at Stittsville United Church SPECIAL TO THE NEWS

Over 40 people gathered at the Stittsville United Church on Friday, Feb. 3, to pray for and to act in solidarity with Muslim brothers and sisters in response to the Jan. 29 murder of six men who were praying at le Centre Culturel Islamique de Quebec. Rev. Grant Dillenbeck of Stittsville United Church opened the gathering in the church sanctuary with a prayer for peace which had been prepared by Muslim, Jewish and Christian leaders.

A video was played showing the Canadian Military Wives Choir, which practises at the church, singing a song called Stronger Together. Candles were lit in memory of the six men who were killed as their names were read out and their photos were displayed on the church's screen: Azzeddine Soufiane, Abdelkrim Hassane, Ibrahima Barry, Mamadou Tanou Barry, Khaled Belkacemi and Boubaker Thabti. Three of the white candles were lit by local community members Don

Carson, Phil Sweetnam and city Coun. Shad Qadri. The other three were lit by members of the broader Ottawa community. Letters of support for Muslim neighbours, prepared by the Moderator of the United Church and the chair of the Ottawa Presbytery of the United Church, were read. Dr. Aisha Sherazi shared some of her reflections as a Muslim woman in response to the killings in Quebec, offering prayers for peace from the Quran.

Rev. Dillenbeck mentioned that the Muslim, Jewish and Christian traditions all have an expression used by people to share their desire for peace to be with one another. The group then spent time "passing the peace" to one another and gathered in a circle for a shared meditation. Everyone was invited to the downstairs hall where participants were invited to light candles and write their own prayers. These were then placed on display pillars in recognition of the way prayers are written

and placed on the Western Wall in Jerusalem. There was more time for shared prayer and reflection led by dance therapist Megan Dillenbeck, with the evening closing with an opportunity to walk in a prayerful way using the labyrinth which had been placed on the floor. The gathering was an opportunity to respond to a very tragic situation by having people from a variety of faiths and backgrounds gather together for mutual support, strength, prayer and solidarity.

Library seeks input on programs Time is running out for seasoned patrons of the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library to complete a survey now underway that may impact what type of programs are offered for the those who are age 55-plus. “It’s not so much to get comment on existing programs, but more about what they may want

to see offered in the future,” the library branch’s Bonnie Foster Abel said. The survey, which is not online put instead is a paper survey available at the library branch, is posted at the branch for anyone who wishes to complete the survey. - Brian Dryden

If you have a general legal question that you would like to have addressed send it via email to Legalmatters@compellingcounsel.com

I’m a young professional and I am currently engaged to be married. I’ve heard of people signing prenuptial agreements. What is a pre-nup and do I need one?

Carp Agricultural Society

What people call a pre-nuptial agreement, or a “prenup” is actually called a marriage contract in Ontario. If a marriage meets an unfortunate demise, the marriage contract provides the parties with a high degree of certainty about how they will proceed in the event of a divorce. Marriage contracts are generally the exception as opposed to the rule; they are often seen as being pessimistic, unromantic, or calculating. However, those who have had to rely on them will generally recommend them for providing clarity and guidance in a difficult time. They are generally more common in second marriage situations; the parties having already been through marital breakdown and, generally speaking, a more mature asset base and shorter distance to retirement. These factors increase the practical appeal of a marriage contract.

and an informed understanding of their legal situation. They are most commonly invalidated for a lack of full financial disclosure, or matters such as undue influence or fraud. A contract will generally be upheld when it is apparent that both parties gave and received full financial disclosure and they were fully aware and informed as to the legal consequences of the contract. Each party should have independent legal advice. This protects against a future claim that one party was not fully aware of what they were signing. Marriage contracts are particularly advisable in situations where the parties have significant disparity in their incomes or asset bases. In those situations, one party may have particular concerns about exposing their assets to the other party in the event of a divorce. A valid marriage contract drafted by a family lawyer can act as an effective insurance policy against what could be a significant financial setback.
