Protest vigils at Village Square Park John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - A protest of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s policy to export asbestos has come to Village Square Park in Stittsville. Rev. Michel Dubord of Richmond, who has just completed a series of protest vigils at Memorial Park in Richmond, has now brought the campaign to Stittsville. Every Wednesday in May between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m., Rev. Dubord will be at the park with his giant sign urging the end of the export by Canada of cancer-causing asbestos. This is what he did every Wednesday at 5 p.m. during April at Memorial Park in Richmond where he was joined by a number of others and where the sign was noticed by hundreds of passing motorists. Rev. Dubord is hoping for the same reaction at Village Square Park in Stittsville, not only in terms of others turning out in support and spending the hour with him in silent protest of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s policy on this matter but also in terms of increasing awareness in the community about the issue.

Rev. Dubord, while rector at St. John the Baptist Anglican Church in Richmond, has undertaken this protest campaign on his own, holding a series of silent vigils first in Richmond and now in Stittsville. He views the campaign as a personal matter of advocacy, not particularly associated with his parish although the Anglican Diocese of Ottawa is taking steps to raise its concerns against the export of asbestos by Canada. Rev. Dubord had a giant sign made up that reads, in bold red lettering, â&#x20AC;&#x153;End Export of Canadian Cancer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Asbestos â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153; and also gives a website address for more information â&#x20AC;&#x201C; canadianasbestosexports.ca Chrysotile asbestos is mined in Quebec and exported to developing nations with the support of the current Canadian government. Asbestos mining in Quebec represents the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fourth largest production of chrysotile asbestos. This export of asbestos to developing nations is being done despite the fact that the World Health Organization estimates that asbestos kills at least 90,000 people a year which is about half of all oc-

cupational cancer deaths. In Canada, strict occupational health and safety rules prevent the exposure of Canadian workers to the mineral. Such rules are not prevalent in developing countries. Asbestos ends up killing since it sheds tiny dust fibres continuously. Once inhaled, these fibres become tangled with lung tissues where they cause cancer, typically lung cancer, asbestosis and mesothelioma. These are killers. The current Canadian government of the Conservatives supports the continuing mining and exporting of asbestos in Quebec. So does the Bloc Quebecois. However, the New Democratic Party, the Liberal Party and the Green Party all advocate for the end of asbestos exports. Rev. Dubord invites anyone who shares his concerns about the export of asbestos by Canada to join him on his weekly silent vigil in protest of the policy. He and his sign will be at Village Square Park in downtown Stittsville every Wednesday in May from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. and he welcomes any and all support. For more information, please contact Rev. Dubord at 613-838-6075.

E-waste bonanza at free drop-off session John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s less e-waste in Stittsville now after last Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s free e-waste drop-off day by Capital Junk. It all happened at the parking lot at the Stittsville Home Furniture store on Stittsville Main Street where there was an overwhelming response from Stittsville residents. Scheduled to run from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., Capital Junk had three trucks ďŹ lled with ewaste by 10 a.m. and had to bring in two more bins to pick up the remaining items. The trucks were ďŹ lled to capacity and then some when the event was over. Indeed, it took Capital Junk personnel until 11:45 a.m. to complete the work at the site, there was so much e-waste collected. People were restricted to three items of ewaste to dispose of but this limitation did not restrict the mountains of e-waste collected. One lady even dropped by to dispose of a single cell phone, showing her environmental consciousness by wanting to have it properly recycled rather than just throwing it out in the garbage. It was this kind of environmental awareness and desire to protect the environment that made for such a massive John Brummell photo turnout at this free e-waste drop-off day in Krista Northcott, right, of Capital Junk helps Dave Brooks, left, drop off a box of e-waste at the Stittsville. free e-waste drop-off day which Capital Junk held at the Stittsville Home Furniture parking This was the fourth free e-waste drop off lot on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville last Saturday morning, April 28. day held by Capital Junk, a full service junk

Two of the previous free ewaste drop-off days were held in Stittsville while there was another one held in Kanata. All of the e-waste collected at this free e-waste drop-off day in Stittsville last Saturday will be taken by Capital Junk to local recycling facilities to ensure proper disposal. Capital Junk, because of its ongoing residential and commercial junk removal activities, has relationships with all of the recycling services required to do this. Some of these are only available to ďŹ rms like Capital Junk and not to individuals. Capital Junk holds these free e-waste drop-off days not only because the company is committed to protecting the environment by making every effort to recycle what it collects on a daily basis but also, quite simply, because the ďŹ rm receives requests for such e-waste drop-off days from customers during the normal course of its regular business activities. Capital Junkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aim is to be environmentally responsible in its daily work and to this end up to 70 percent of its regular loads are recycled. The e-waste collected in Stittsville last Saturday ranged from computer towers to keyboards to fax machines to TVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to monitors to cell phones to other electronic items.

SVA sells, delivers over 400 rain barrels John Curry

john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - The Stittsville Village Associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rain barrel sale overflowed with success last Saturday, April 28. The Associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s initial goal of selling 300 rain barrels was exceeded as over 400 barrels were sold and delivered to Sobeys in two truckloads where they were unloaded by Stittsville Village Association (SVA) volunteers assisted by Sobeys staff and then distributed to their purchasers. All in all, 412 barrels were ordered through the SVAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sales drive. In addition, the SVA had a number of barrels

on hand for last minute â&#x20AC;&#x153;pick up dayâ&#x20AC;? sales. The idea of the rain barrel sale was first suggested to the SVA executive by SVA secretary Tanya Hein who then coordinated the sales program and supervised last Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pick up day activities which included the unloading of the rain barrels from the delivery trucks, distributing them to their purchasers and ensuring payment. The first truckload of rain barrels had arrived at 7 a.m. Sobeys owner Tim LaPlante, who is an SVA director as well, engaged his staff to get this truck unloaded. When the

second truck arrived, SVA executive members and volunteers were in place to facilitate the unloading, with Sobeys staff assisting as well. SVA director David Fairbrother not only spent the day helping unload and distribute the barrels to their purchasers but freely gave advice to many purchasers on how to assemble the barrels and the attachments which came with each one. In addition, he even delivered one barrel to a home because it would not fit in the purchaserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s car. Now thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s service! This rain barrel sale is a major fundraising venture

for the SVA which is receiving $10 out of the $55 selling price of each rain barrel. The funds will be used by the SVA

to help with expenses related to the various community events which it hosts throughout the year such as the up-

coming Artists and Authors in the Park, Canada Day celebrations, Villagefest and the Christmas Parade of Lights.

Swahili class leads to volunteering in Tanzania John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - Last September Vanessa Burn of Stittsville enrolled in a Swahili language class at Carleton University where she is completing her second year in the social work program. She was tired of taking the usual English or history class and wanted to experience something different. Little did she know then where it would end up leading her. But now, eight months later, the 19 year old Stittsville resident is in Tanzania, a Swahili speaking country in East Africa, where she is beginning a two month volunteer work placement arranged through International Volunteer HQ (IVHQ), an organization which provides volunteering opportunities abroad in developing countries around the world including Tanzania. IVHQ annually places over 4,000 people in these programs around the world. For Vanessa, she will be volunteering at an orphanage, a placement that she chose because it ďŹ ts in with the social work focus of her university studies. In addition, working with young people is right up her alley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Children are a passion of

mine,â&#x20AC;? she says. The orphanage is in the city of Arusha in northern Tanzania, a city of over one million people. It is a day orphanage, meaning that the children, aged 3 to 9, attend the orphanage during the day but then return home to an extended family situation or a neighbour for the night. Vanessa will be teaching English and math and just keeping the children active. She realizes that she will be experiencing a very different lifestyle and culture in Tanzania but is approaching the situation with the outlook of â&#x20AC;&#x153;trying to expect the unexpected.â&#x20AC;? Thanks to her Swahili class at Carleton University, she now has a basic knowledge of Swahili, the language spoken in Tanzania. This will allow her to interact better with the children at the orphanage and to build a relationship with them, since they will be communicating in Swahili. While in Tanzania, Vanessa will be living in a group residence with nine other IVHQ volunteers from around the world. Vanessa, who attended A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary School in Stittsville before graduating from South Carleton High School, will be

returning home from this volunteer experience on Canada Day, July 1st but she will be coming back with many more memories than just those related to her orphanage experience. She is going to have the opportunity to visit other IVHQ placements while in Tanzania, such as a school for disabled children. She will also be going on a four-day safari on which she will be seeing the famous Mount Kilimanjaro, visiting a volcanic crater and touring national wildlife parks. In addition, she will have enjoyed a weekend trip to Zanzibar and its white sand beaches in the Indian Ocean. Vanessa will also be participating in numerous activities while in Tanzania, such as coffee plantation tours and dirt bike excursions. And this all has happened because Vanessa enrolled in a Swahili language class last September. It was in this class that through a classmate she learned about volunteer opportunities with IVHQ. In December, she contacted IVHQ for more information and ended up signing up and the rest is history. Vanessa had not been planning on travelling internationally as she was focused on

Vanessa Burn saving for her studies. She also had not thought much about volunteering in a developing country and deďŹ nitely not about doing it in Tanzania. But while this has all happened quickly, she is happy that this opportunity has opened up to her. In fact, she now hopes to do more travelling and volunteering in the future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve kind of got the bug now,â&#x20AC;? Vanessa says. She is looking forward to experiencing in Tanzania a change from the lifestyle of the western developed world

to which she is accustomed. She is entering this experience in Tanzania wanting to be able to give as much as she can. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why she left with 30 soccer balls and also soccer jerseys which she will be distributing there. Thanks to Freecycle, she also left with childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shoes, used eye glasses and school supplies for the orphanage. Vanessa is expecting a culture shock in Tanzania, especially since it is a Mulsim country. But she expects no problems, especially since she will be working in the orphanage and will be visiting schools and, thanks to her Swahili course, will be speaking at least a little bit of Swahili. She is planning to enroll in a Swahili course again this fall when she is back at Carleton University for the third of her four year social work course, all in the hope of improving her Swahil even more. She says that she may volunteer in another country where Swahili is spoken in the future but believes this will not be for several years because of the costs involved in travelling and participating in the IVHQ program. Vanessa plans to set up a blog on facebook so that people can keep track of what

she is doing during her two months in Tanzania. She has found that the professor of her Swahil class and indeed her classmates have not only been supportive of her endeavour but have provided knowledge and information to her about Tanzania. Vanessa also has a donation page for those who might want to help her meet the $5,000 cost that this trip and volunteer experience is costing her. The link to this donation page is http://www.gofundme.com/ j95jo Swahili is a Bantu language spoken in countries stretching from northern Kenya to northern Mozambique as well as in Somalia. It is the ofďŹ cial national language of Tanzania as well as of Uganda and Kenya. Tanzania is a country in East Africa bordered by Kenya and Uganda to the north, Rwanda, Burundi and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the west and Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique to the south. The Indian Ocean is to its east. The two stages of Tanganyika and Zanzibar united in 1964 to form the United Republic of Tanganyika Zanzibar which was renamed as the United Republic of Tanzania. Tanganyika had become independent of British colonial rule in 1961.

The â&#x20AC;&#x153;High Teaâ&#x20AC;? will include tea or juice, sandwiches and a square or scone. The cost will be $5 per adult (age 13 years and up), $3 for those aged 8 to 12 years and $1 for those aged 4 to 7 years. Children aged 3 and under

will be free. This is a great opportunity not only to celebrate Queen Elizabethâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Diamond Jubilee in a most ďŹ tting way with tea and a scone but also to assist the local Guiding community in its fundraising efforts. Through this event, Stittsvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Guiding community is participating in the Girl Guides of Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Diamond Jubilee Challenge.â&#x20AC;?

Celebrating 30 Years

The provincial organization is challenging local Guiding groups to try to earn 60 points (One for each year of Queen Elizabehtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reign) through undertaking a number of special activities geared to the Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Diamond Jubilee. One of these, worth 20 points in the challenge, is to host a tea party. The provincial organization is encouraging the wearing of gloves and

hats for this event and even speaking with British accents, as well as holding the pinky ďŹ nger out while sitting on the tea. All of this, of course, would be done using the best of manners in typical British behaviour. Everyone in the community is encouraged to attend this

Be an Active Tourist: Walk or Bike Your Way to Health Written by Lorrie Levesque, B.A., B.Sc., Project Officer, Ottawa Public Health, Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Branch

Being active is good for our physical and mental health. Getting active doesn’t mean spending hours May is physical activity month in Ottawa. It is a at the gym. It’s about making small changes that result great time to start being more active, to see the city in health gains. One way is to become an “active tourist” in your own city and neighbourhood: and to enjoy warmer weather. In the last 25 years, we have become less active. In fact, 68% of Canadian men and 69% of women spend the majority of their waking hours sitting, an average of 9 hours a day. We are spending more time in our seats and less time on our feet!

• Park your car and explore the heritage sites (http://www.canadascapital.gc.ca/places-to-visit/ parliament-hill) downtown • Walk or bike along Ottawa’s many trails and paths You can improve your health by being an “active (http://www.canadascapital.gc.ca/places-to-visit/ tourist” and enjoying all Ottawa has to offer. parks-paths/capital-pathway-recreational-pathscapital ) • Get into nature and have a fun hike with your family in the National Capitals Greenbelt (http:// www.canadascapital.gc.ca/places-to-visit/ greenbelt/things-to-do/hiking-walking-greenbelt ) • Borrow a pedometer (http://biblioottawalibrary. ca/en/main/library/card/using/other/pedometer ) from an Ottawa Public Library and count your steps as you visit the Tulip Festival (http:// tulipfestival.ca/index.php/site/home/en )

Walking is good for

your health, but remember to be safe Written by Terry-Lynne Marko B.ScN., Public Health Nurse, Ottawa Public Health, Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Branch

Walking is good for your health. It is a free and easy way to travel to school, work or to run an errand, but it is important to be safe. For example, a child who talks on the phone while crossing the street, has a one in three chance of being hit by a car. You and your family can enjoy a safe walk with a few simple safety tips:

Be aware • Put away anything that distracts you, like cell phones and handheld music devices • Make eye contact with drivers and cyclists before you step off the curb, and make sure they will stop for you • Walk on the sidewalk or if no sidewalk is available, on the street towards traffic

Be noticed

• Walk with a friend or in a group • Wear bright coloured clothes • Walk across the street at a designated crossing • In the evening, wear clothes that reflect light

Walking is a great way to stay healthy and see the city. Go for a walk today and enjoy. Visit Safe Kids Canada www.safekids.ca to find out more information on walking safely.

Be a teacher

Around the age of 10 years old, children learn how to judge distance, depth and speed of cars. • Teach and show your children how, when and where to cross the street • Help your children to be confident • Start on quiet streets and over time, teach them to be safe in busier areas

Be comfortable • • •

Wear comfy clothes and shoes Use sunscreen Drink plenty of water

Cutting MP pay, pensions could help clean up politics

T

axpayers forked over at least $45,000 to Prime Minster Stephen Harper to enjoy a New York Yankees game and a Broadway show last Labour Day. That stories of a bloated sense of entitlement continue to pile up many years after the Liberal party was shown the door comes as little surprise to many. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s little difference among parties that have held power in Canada, they lament. Certainly a segment of voters actually believed Harper

meant it, some 10 years ago, when he talked about grassroots decision-making and battling corruption in the federal government. That Harper would squander tens of thousands of dollars on himself during Labour Day, of all days, sends yet another message to the other side. The 99 per cent might get a day off, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll cost them. True, the symbolic message doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come close to Peter MacKayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s helicopter trip let alone Tony Clementâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s alleged

misappropriation of $50 million. The examples of Conservatives gleefully blowing taxpayers money over the last few years could go on and on. But cutting heads off a blue Lernaean Hydra instead of a red one matters little. The point is both Liberals and Conservatives have little credibility left on matters of openness, accountability, corruption and other issues. Even their belief in free and fair elections â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at least when in comes to the Conservatives â&#x20AC;&#x201C; has become suspect.

So, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the answer to the downward spiral in Canadian politics? A possible contribution to reversing the decline comes from the right wing Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF). According to figures compiled by CTF, taxpayers contributed $23.30 last year for every dollar put into the parliamentary pension plan by MPs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How do you explain to someone scraping for their retirement that Canada canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford $508 a month for a 65-year-old, when defeated 60-year-

old backbench MP Yasmin Ratansi got $2,758 a month after just seven years on the job,â&#x20AC;? asks CTF. MPs pensions are too high. MPs salaries are too high. And the numerous related perks are offensive to the average person. There is a fiscal argument for bringing down MPsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; compensation and reinvesting it in social programs. But the moral argument is more important. There is a relationship between escalating MP compensation packages and

the increasing sense of entitlement and corruption weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve witnessed over the last couple of decades. It is clear that not everyone in federal politics is unethical. Some can take a six-figure salary and still put the interests of constituents and the nation ahead of themselves. It is equally clear, though, that the lure of big money attracts the greedy and selfindulgent. To explain away that basic truism with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, you have to pay top dollar for the best qualified people,â&#x20AC;? simply doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fly anymore. The current situation is the proof.

Finding a needle in a big-box haystack CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

I

â&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been compiling a list of things you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t buy in a shopping centre. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s short so far, but it will grow, as stores get bigger and farther away. It goes without saying that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never find that one little hardware part you need. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to buy a dozen. A surprising entry on the list is a newspaper. The other day I was in a shopping centre and realized there was no such thing as a newsstand. The drug store, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any. It used to be that you couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t avoid newspapers. A less surprising item that you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find in a shopping centre is a pump needle. You need to pump up your basketball, say, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in a shopping centre, which has a sports store and a department store. But the department storeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sporting good section mostly sells exercise equipment and the sports store mostly sells clothes. You ask about a needle and get a funny look. Someone at the department store says go to Walmart. So next time Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in Westboro I wander into Westboro Sports Centre on Richmond Road, which might have needles because it has bicycles and pumps. The guy doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look at me funny. We do stock those, he says, but â&#x20AC;Ś and the â&#x20AC;&#x153;butâ&#x20AC;? is that he just sold the last one. But â&#x20AC;Ś and then he disappears for a moment and comes back with a needle. I was using this one, but you can have it, he says, because I want you to feel special. Anybody got a basketball they want pumped? Now, I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say Westboro Sports is the only place in Ottawa that has a needle for your pump. Nor will I say that it is the only store in

Ottawa where people are friendly, informed and eager to help. It just happens to be one that is nearby. There is probably a favourite store in your neighbourhood, too, if you have a neighbourhood. Lots of people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, because of how cities have grown in recent years. Many people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have neighbourhood stores, they have shopping centres. And even the neighbourhoods are changing. The other day we were back at Westboro Sports to drop off a sympathy card for Doug Herbst, who died far too young after a lifetime at Westboro Sports. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure we are not the only family in Ottawa in which three generations have bought bikes and skates at Westboro Sports. In the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;70s, Dougâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father, Bill, helped us with hockey equipment, telling us what we needed for Tyke hockey, what we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need so much, advice that saved us money that we would not have saved at the shopping centre. In the decades since, it was Doug, along with his brother Geoff, who helped out with bicycles and skates, most recently with our grandchildren. He will really be missed, but the store will go on because there are hundreds of people like us out there. You hope that there are enough of us to keep other small businesses going, in the face of overpowering competition from stores that can offer more, and cheaper, and giant parking lots, but wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to tell you why one pair of skates is more suitable for a five-year-old than another and wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to drop everything to fix some little thing that went wrong with a bicycle. We were looking at the changing face of Westboro and trying to figure out if there are any other stores left that were there when we first visited Westboro Sports. Even the Newport, in its present form, has been around only since 1988. Other stores are even newer. Eventually, more and more of them will become chains, as high rents drive the little guys out. Running a neighbourhood business is a challenge, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made a lot easier when customers are loyal to the neighbourhood, because they know where to look for a needle.

‘Fiddle dance’ category at Richmond competition John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - Stepdancing and fiddling are linked. Stepdancing is a popular, lively form of dance with the feet flying in tune with the inevitable fiddle music. You can’t have one without the other as it is their unison of beat and rhythm that makes it great. But imagine, for a moment, doing both together. Yes, that’s right. One person fiddling and stepdancing at the same time. Now that’s quite a feat! Yet, this amazing combination of talents will be on display at the upcoming Ottawa Fiddle and Stepdance Competition Weekend in Richmond on the long May weekend when there will once again this year be a “fiddle dance” category on the program. Last year there were just three entered in this category, perhaps an indication of the difficulty of doing both of these things at the same time. But following last year’s introduction of this category, organizers are hoping that there will be more entries this year to wow the audience with their combined skills of stepdancing and fiddling at the same time. One of those who will be entered again this year in this dual-skill category is 14 year old Elly Wedge of Richmond, who competed last year. She says that combining

the two skills is more difficult if a competitor goes slow. She finds it better to keep the pace of the performance up. She has said that fiddling and stepdancing at the same time takes some getting used to due to the difficulty of coordinating the actions of both hands and feet when they are doing such different things. Elly Wedge, who has been fiddling for nine years since she was five years old and also is a stepdancer, is a regular in local fiddle and stepdance competitions, competing in such an event almost every weekend throughout the summer. This upcoming competition in Richmond on the May long weekend is the first competition of the year. Elly says that her fiddling is fun to do. “It’s great to entertain people,” she says. But she does acknowledge that there is a lot of practice involved, especially in preparing for competitions. That’s because everyone in the competitions is so good and so the level of competition is high. She says that the technique and style used in playing are factors in the judging but so also is the feeling that the fiddler displays – how much emotion the fiddler puts into the playing. She says that the difficulty of the piece played is also considered, although she feels that it is not as important a

factor in judging as some of the other factors. Elly says that the Richmond competition weekend is one of her favourite competitions, noting how much fun everyone has. She also says that the practice rooms provided for the competitors at the Richmond site are great, another reason for her high rating for the event. The tenth annual Ottawa Fiddle and Stepdance Competition Weekend will take place from Friday, May 18 through Sunday, May 20 at the Richmond Curling Club in Richmond. There is a dance on the Friday night followed by two days of competition on both Saturday, May 19 and Sunday, May 20. The event, though, is meant as more than just a competition for the fiddlers and stepdancers. What is competition for these participants is entertainment for those who are in the audience. That’s what makes the event so great. It is virtually non-stop entertainment as competitor after competitor struts their staff on stage, either stepdancing in one of the 11 categories offered or fiddling in one of the 10 categories on the schedule. Fiddle and piano music are constantly wafting through the Richmond Curling Club as every stepdancer is accompanied by a fiddler and pia-

nist, whether it is house fiddler Kyle Felhaver or house pianist Guylaine Gagne or a fiddler friend.

So if you like toe tapping, lively music, this upcoming fiddle and stepdance weekend at the Richmond Curling Club

is for you. For more information, check out the website www. ottawafiddlestepdance.ca

Superman Christ, colourful followers in Godspell John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - Imagine Jesus Christ wearing a Superman jersey, red shoes, rainbow-coloured suspenders and white pants. And imagine his followers wearing similarly outlandish, improvised outfits like polka dot bloomers, a ballerina’s tutu, a top hat and so on. This gives you a glimpse of the non-traditional circumstances of the musical Godspell as presented at Stittsville United Church last weekend. This, though, is all in keeping with the original concept of Godspell as conceived by John-Michael Tebelak and developed with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz back in 1971, all based on the gospel according to St. Matthew. And what a musical it was! Two hours filled with singing, skits, dancing and more, all happening on a single set given added dimension and variety thanks to the presence of construction scaffolding. And, unlike the original which featured references that made sense in the 1970’s, such as remarks about the Three Stoogies, this Stittsville United Church version had its own contemporary references. So facebook had a mention. Jesus interprets what a mile means in metric terms for the younger ones in the audience. Marshmallows are cooked in the heat of Hell. Seeds falling

There was a rap version of one song. “Alvin and the Chipmunks” are referenced in another segment. Three Star Wars Darth Vadar-type characters, high up on the scaffolding, played the role of modern-day Pharisees. There, of course, was humour as well. When these Pharisees tossed down a giant coin as part of the conversation about what should be rendered to Caesar, the circular coin rolled right off the stage and down the centre aisle of the church. A voice pleaded that someone stop the coin

and return it to the stage. Or when someone mentioned about getting your just desserts, a voice responded: “I like desserts.” Or when Judas, as played by Rick Gourlie stomped off the stage after betraying Jesus, a slammed door lost its handle. Sorry, said the voice of a suddenly meek Judas. Anything, it seems, can and does happen in live theatre. This was not all simple to develop and present. Indeed, an understanding of the gospel of St. Matthew and its parables had to be fostered before any actual rehearsals began. That’s why the actors did not even see a script for

the first month which was taken up with discussions about the gospel of St. Matthew. The group met three times a week, not the traditional once a week, because there was so much preparatory work to be done. Each actor had to read the gospel of St. Matthew in its entirety. They also had to read the book “Feast of Fools,” written by Harvey Cox. Head of the Harvard Divinity School, which provided the concept for Godspell. The preparations also meant the group determining how it was going to tell the array of parables found in the gospel of St. Matthew. Director Ruth

Richardson insisted that there be variety in the presentation, so one parable might be told via song and another via charades and so on. It was very much a team production and some of the preparation involved the efforts of a team building coach Elizabeth Hochster-Hurst whose task was to meld the group into a team where they all supported each other as they performed on stage. And just who formed this on-stage team? There was the Supermanjerseyed Ben Rhody as Jesus while Rick Gourlie was John the Baptist, Peter and Judas. The “clowns,” all of whom used their own real first names, were Liz Schmidt as Liz, Sasha Newar as Sasha, Greg Chennette as Greg, Dave Newar as Dave, Katy Lamb as Katy, Alex Slobodian as Alex, Amy Mesdag as Amy, Sandy Villeneauve as Sandy and Tobi Dumoulin as Tobi. Catherine Hurst was the Dandelion Weed. The cast was backed up in his musical numbers by an adult chorus which included Don Carson, Jack Dean, Sue Lopez, Betty Young, Alanna Code, Carol Ann Joiner, Rev. Grant Dillenbeck, Sarah Daly, Nick Migliaccio, Mary Roe, Karen Sherlock Brennan, Robert Schwab, Betty Lyn Schwab and Amberlee Gray Hamilton. Doll Creelman was the

musical director for Godspell while Ruth Richardson and Rick Gourlie were the artistic directors. Elizabeth Hochster-Hurst served as the team building coach while Wendy Morrell was the dance choreographer. Wardrobe and makeup were handled by Louise Deluca and Bonnie Lamb with assistance from the Orpheus Society. Musicians involved in the musical were Sarah Daly on piano, Allan Snider on flute and Ryan Hutchison as the beat boxer. Wray Lamb, Mike Lamb and Randy Carson handed the audio-visual support and the props. The set design creator was Rick Gourlie while the set construction crew consisted of Dave Newar, Heather Newar, Colin Gaudet, Alex Slobodian, Rev. Grant Dillenbeck, James Hurst, Katy Lamb, Darren Hagar, Frank Argue, Alanna Code and Karen Brennan. After producing four biblical musicals over the past five years, Stittsville United Church decided to accept a new challenge this year, producing a Broadway hit like Godspell. This challenged the teens and adults involved but in so doing it provided each cast member with the opportunity to truly consider their understanding of the messages of Jesus and, you could say, be caught under “God’s Spell.” R0011381550

Moonlight Madness is a semi-annual clearance event like no other. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why. Twice a year the factory hosts an International Trade Show where all of the new products are introduced to the world. We have recently returned from the North Carolina Market after purchasing truckloads of new introductions. We need to make room for the new arrivals on our showroom ďŹ&#x201A;oors and in the warehouse. Moonlight Madness is the markdown sales event where we clear out last seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s models, discontinued fabrics, cancelled special orders and all excess inventory to make room for incoming inventory. Many items are limited to stock on hand and no rain-cheques can be issued at these prices. With pressure to reduce inventory and make room in our warehouse, price reductions are dramatic. There are markdowns from 10% - 50% throughout the store. Many discontinued items, cancelled orders and special buys will be priced at cost, near cost or below cost. Pick up a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Scratch & Saveâ&#x20AC;? card in the store and you can save 5% - 100% off your purchase. Plus, Pay No Interest for up to 12 Months*!

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the Clearance Event that people will wait for... and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taking place this weekend!

Blood donor clinics Adult book club? Special to the News

EMC news - Community blood donor clinics are coming up in both Stittsville and Richmond. A clinic is being held in the gymnasium at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex on Shea Road in Stittsville on Friday, May 11 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. In Richmond, a community blood donor clinic is being held at the St. Philip Roman Catholic Church’s parish hall on Burke Street at Fortune Street on Thursday, May 17 from 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Those wishing to donate blood at either one of these clinics should call 1-888-2DONATE

(1-888-236-6283) to book an appointment. Every minute of every day in Canada, someone needs blood and the only way that the blood is available when needed is through the generosity and caring of blood donors who willingly attend community blood donor clinics to donate blood. It often requires many units of blood to help one patient. A car accident victim, for example, can need up to 50 units of blood which means 50 blood donations are needed just to help that one patient. Leukemia patients can need as many as eight units of blood a week as part of their treatment.

‘The Aristocats’ at Goulbourn Middle School John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - The butler did it! This is a traditional and time-tested scenario in dramatic presentations but in the musical The Aristocats which was presented at Goulbourn Middle School last week, it really was the butler who was the “bad guy”, trying to get rid of the family of cats loved by his wealthy employer. The musical features not only these aristocratic cats (hence the title “The Aristocats”) but also an assortment of other characters ranging from dogs to geese to alley cats. The musical is based on the 1970 American animated feature film produced and released by Walt Disney Productions. The story revolves around a family of aristocratic cats and how an alley cat acquaintance helps them after the butler has kidnapped them to gain his employer’s fortune which was meant to go to the cats. In the musical, the scene shifts from an alley

in Paris to the Aristocats’ mansion home to the French countryside where the Aristocats are abandoned by the butler to an alley in parish and more action at the mansion. In the end, it all works out thanks to the efforts of the alley cat leader Thomas O’Malley as the devilish ways of the butler Edgar are unmasked. Playing the role of the mother aristocrat Duchess in the Goulbourn Middle School production last week was Lauren Massey while her three kittens were played by Caroline Frost as Toulouse, Olivia Bradey as Marie and Camryn Paige Gallagher as Berlioz. Emma Hunt played the role of Madame, the wealthy cat lover, while Nick Ainger was Edgar, the butler. Liam Miller was Thomas O”Malley, the alley cat leader while others in the cat included Lukas Upton as Scat Cat; Rachel Swafford as Wacky Cat; Matt Spafford as Hep Cat; Bailey Agard as Slick Cat; Cole Metcalfe as Mad Cat;

Alexandra Pike as Roquefort, a mouse and a friend of the cats; Emily Aitken as Napoleon, a dog; Liam McGuire as LaFayette, another dog; Abby Green as Vichy; Jacob Ferguson as Ssoise; Zoe McManus and Amy DeBoer as Abigail Gabble, a goose; and Kaitlyn de Moree as Amelia Gabble, another goose. Playing members of the “Dog Army” in the musical were Holly George, Jie Lin and Amna Shuva-Miah. Performing as the Gaggle of Geese in the musical were Sarah Eaton, Jessica Norton, Kathryn Reid, Juliet Maniloff, Sarah Monk, Nadhirah Saparno, Jada Rogers and Victoria Nguyen. Members of the Alleycat Chorus in the musical were Jessica Bell, Max Bergwerff, Darcie Watson-Laird, Robyn Flanders, Skyler Bolton, Rachel Montgomery, Adam Alibhai, Sydney Foster, Emily Ferguson, Abu Alibhai, Alyssa Morden Hayley and Akhir Alibhai. Besides the on-stage performers, Goulbourn Middle School’s presentation of The Aristocats involved a lot of backstage work by students, teachers and staff. Sound and lights, supervised by teacher Jen Thompson, involved the efforts of students Kalen Bucknell, Alex Marriner, Tristan Ierullo, Kyle Stacey, James Stafford and Shannon

Wilvers. Stage construction, supervised by staff members Steve Wolf and Brian Adams, was handled by Kalen Bucknell, Wesley Usher, Kyle Stacey, Tamara Higgs, Jason Demers, Jessica Dodd, Theekshana Jayanetti, Josh Morrell-Frewen and Kathleen Sauve. Rebecca Frost handled set design with Nicole Maclaren serving as set supervisor. Members of the set crew were Keeley Buchanan, Alicia Bulitka, Jessica Bulitka, Sydney Cearns, Caroline Frost, Mia Gosham-Hamer, Shannon Smith, Bavisha Thurairajah and Jacqueline Tilgner. The stage crew, supervised by Violeta McNaughton assisted by jenny Norton, included Shanice Baird, Rebecca Frost, Jenna Bjornson, Kylah White, Sydney Dearing, Kendall Ryan, Trisha Lamb, Grace Arthur and Jacquie Duong. Costumes were handled by Lesley Andrews and Rachel Huebert while advertising posters were produced by Violeta McNaughton and Lesley Andrews. Mongique Fournier-Redding looked after the program and tickets. The whole production was directed by teachers Barb Friesen and Jen Sammon assisted by Sydney Dearing.

Stittsville News EMC - Thursday, May 3, 2012 17


Ottawa realtor Paul Rushforth sometimes senses a hesitation in homeowners who’d like to sell their homes. They’re worried that potential buyers are afraid that real estate prices are about to fall, just as they have fallen, drastically, over the past few years in the United States. “I tell them there’s really very little to worry about,” Rushforth says. “Especially in Ottawa, we don’t really have a real estate bubble. In nearly six decades, we’ve only seen prices go down four times—and I personally expect prices to continue increasing.” Vancouver and Toronto may have real estate bubbles, especially in the condo market, but that’s not true of Ottawa, Rushforth says. “I actually expect that five years from now, people will be wishing they had bought in 2012.”

Skateboarding in Richmond John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - A skateboard park may be in Richmond’s future. There are some rumours at present that Lions Park in Richmond might be the possible site for a skateboard park. However, Richmond Village Association (RVA) president Don Flanders feels that there may not be enough room at that site. In addition, speaking to the issue at the last RVA executive meeting, he noted that such a facility might be upsetting to the adjacent Hyde Park community which now abuts Lions Park. Other possible sites for a skateboard

park in Richmond might be the Richmond Plaza or the conservation area park along the Jock River at Royal York Street and McBean Street. Estimated cost of a skateboard park is $150,000. It was suggested at the meeting that the best location for such a facility might be a park in a future new subdivision in the village. RVA treasurer Heather Martineau noted that some youth in the village have indicated support for a skateboard park but she wondered how widespread such support is among the youth. She said that she would like to see the skateboard project driven by the youth,

not the RVA executive, although the RVA would support such a youth initiative. “They have to work for it,” she said with regard to the involvement of youth in the project. Ms. Martineau said that if there is community support for the project and if fundraising can be done, then the RVA would be willing to approach city officials to see if the city would provide some funding for the project. Corporate donations would also be important to the project. The RVA has until March 1, 2013 to apply to a city program that would provide matching funds up to $15,000 for a project such as a skateboard park.

You can sell your house for top dollar now, he says. But to squeeze full value from your home, you need to put a little time and money into sprucing your property up. “A modest amount of money and a little perspiration can give your house a huge boost in selling price, something my clients have shown time and time again.”

Sunday June 10th 10am to 3pm Here are Rushforth’s top tips on giving a home more appeal: x

Paint: Rushforth calls this “the greatest bang for your buck!”

x

Lighting: you can easily pick up an inexpensive chandelier or dome lights at a big box store.

x

Kitchens: new modern backsplash and countertop and new hardware on cabinet doors.

x

Bathrooms: fresh paint, new ceramic tiles and new lighting, will bring a dated bathroom back to life.

x

Floors: refinish scratched hardwood floor, replace soiled carpets, and replace linoleum with ceramic tiles.

“Without breaking the bank, you can usually improve your house far more than you first expected,” he says. “The key is to do things conservatively and wisely—to do a lot yourself, to use lower-end fixes, and barter and trade where you can.” Rushforth has seen these strategies work time after time—in his real estate practice, and also in the television show All For Nothing?, which he hosts with designer Penny Southam. Each week, two household compete to see who can get the greatest increase in house value while spending essentially nothing. “The homeowners get better than a ten-to-one return,” Rushforth says. “The average home increases in value by $27,000 with expenses of only $2,600.”

Wrong turn leads to right turn for career John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Sometimes a wrong turn can be the right one. Just ask Dr. Virinder Kasbia, a chiropractor who has recently joined the Amberwood Chiropractic Centre ofďŹ ce at the Shops of Main Street plaza in Stittsville. Indeed, she would not be a chiropractor today had she not taken a wrong turn when receiving medical treatment in her youth. It was an accidental wrong turn that ended up being the right turn for the future chiropractor. She had developed tennis elbow from her youthful sporting endeavours, having played soccer and other sports at her high school, A.Y. Jackson Secondary School in Kanata. Her doctor advised her to go see a physiotherapist but in so doing, she accidentally turned into the ofďŹ ce of a chiropractor. And the rest, as Dr. Kasbia admits today, â&#x20AC;&#x153;is history.â&#x20AC;? The chiropractor ended up helping her condition. This success aroused her curiosity about how the chiropractor, Dr. Andrea Fefferman, could help her without using any medications. In the end, this â&#x20AC;&#x153;wrong turnâ&#x20AC;? into a chiropractorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ofďŹ ce ended up being life changing for Dr. Kasbia as she abandoned her previous desire to go into sports medicine and switched her focus to chiropractic. Her â&#x20AC;&#x153;wrong turnâ&#x20AC;? turned out to be the right one for her. After earning a degree in human kinetics at the University of Ottawa, she was off to Chicago where she received her chiropractic degree, graduating in the year 2000. She was one of just two Canadians in her class but she felt that this Chicago education

offered her the best choice in chiropractic education since in the United States, chiropractors are considered primary care physicians. On graduation, an opportunity arose for her to establish a practice in Pembroke which she did and which she still operates. But having grown up in Kanata, she has seized on this current opportunity to work part time at Dr. Tammy Graceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Amberwood Chiropractic Centre in Stittsville while still continuing with her Pembroke practice. Dr. Kasbia attended A.Y. Jackson Secondary School in Kanata where a number of her classmates were from Stittsville. In addition, she is welcoming this opportunity to be back close to her roots, her home community of Kanata where her family still lives. Incidentally, Dr. Tammy Grace, owner of the Amberwood Chiropractic Centre, hails from Pembroke and in fact Dr. Kasbia recalls doing a chiropractic adjustment on Dr. Grace 11 years ago. Now they are working together. Dr. Kasbia is a chiropractor who likes and who uses the latest technology available. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am a research junkie and a technology type of techie,â&#x20AC;? she says, explaining that she utilizes in her treatment the latest technology in chiropractic care, an impulse adjuster. This gun-like device produces a gentle thrust that results in treatment one hundred times faster than a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hands can accomplish. Dr. Kasbia still uses her hands to feel the spin and do some adjustments but she readily admits that the impulse adjuster is her instrument of choice for treatment. She says that its quick action

means that the patientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body does not tense up. In addition, this low force but high speed treatment is a key to making a patient feel good quickly. Dr. Kasbia also admits to having a passion for feet in terms of orthodonics and foot biomechanics. She says that chiropractors become experts in feet because a problem with the foot can affect the functioning of other parts of the body. She points out that a chiropractor never stops learning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are constantly learning every day, for sure,â&#x20AC;? she says. She is hoping that her particular strengths as a chiropractor will beneďŹ t the Amberwood Chiropractic Centre and will let her help as many patients as possible. Dr. Kasbia has been at the clinic for several weeks now, working all day Tuesdays and half days on Fridays. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting out,â&#x20AC;? she says about her availability at the Amberwood Chiropractic Centre. She feels that chiropractic care has really taken off in recent years as members of the public are taking more responsibility for their own health. She says that chiropractic care is a preventative type of medicine in that ongoing maintenance adjustments and treatments can prevent more serious physical conditions. Dr. Kasbia enjoys coaching soccer, having played the game, among other sports, in her high school years. She is not coaching this year due to her increased workload but she certainly hopes to resume her coaching in the future. Dr. Kasbia can be contacted at the Amberwood Chiropractic Centre at 613-831-7982.

Mother’s Day luncheon John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - Mother’s Day is celebrated each year on the second Sunday in May which this year falls on Sunday, May 13. But Mother’s Day celebrations are not confined to the one day. In Stittsville, for example, the United Church Women at Stittsville United Church are hosting a Mother’s Day luncheon and bake sale on the day before, Saturday, May 12. This event at the church on Fernbank Road just west of Stittsville Main Street will run from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. with everyone in the community welcome to attend. The cost will be $8 for adults.

The celebration of Mother’s Day dates back to the early 20th century when the first “official” Mother’s Day service was held on May 10, 1908 in the Andrew’s Methodist Episcopal Church in Grafton, West Virginia as well as in the Wanamaker Auditorium in the Wanamaker’s store in Philadelphia. The celebration quickly spread, with the day being marked in New York the next year. It was on May 8, 1914 that the United States Congress passed a law designating the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day. President Woodrow Wilson subsequently issued a proclamation declaring the first national Mother’s Day in the United States.

EMC news - Feet will be flying, fiddles will be wailing and toes will be tapping on the upcoming long weekend in Richmond. That’s because the tenth annual Ottawa Fiddle and Stepdance Weekend will be happening. This is an event that not only is a competition for stepdancers and fiddlers of all calibers and ages but also is two days of non-stop entertainment for anyone who loves stepdancing and fiddling. The event really begins at its Richmond Curling Club location on Friday, May 18 when there will be a dance, open to all, running from 7:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. featuring live country music provided by “Buck 50.” There is even going to be some square dancing opportunities provided, so if you are a square dancing enthusiast or if you would like to try it out, this is the dance for you. The actual fiddle and stepdancing competition runs on both Saturday, May 19 and Sunday, May 20 and while this is competition focused for the participants of all ages, this is entertainment heaven for all those who attend – continuous fiddling and stepdancing, On Saturday, May 19, the competition starts at 11 a.m. and runs through the day. Then, there is an evening show that starts at 6:30 p.m.

Sunday, May 20 will see more of the same, with the competition getting underway again at 1 p.m. The Sunday is capped off with an evening finals showcase that starts at 7 p.m. And what’s even better about all of this is the cost. There’s a weekend pass available for just $25. Saturday daytime admission will be $10, the same as admission to the Saturday evening show. Sunday daytime admission will be $10 as well while admission to the gala Sunday evening showcase will be $12. Children 12 and under will be admitted for $5 at any time. A special highlight on Sunday, May 20 will be a breakfast and gospel hour in the morning. This is the tenth year for this Ottawa Fiddle and Stepdance Competition Weekend and the eighth year that it has been held in Richmond. For its first two years, it was held at the Nepean Sportsplex before relocating to its current Richmond site. On site camping at the adjacent Richmond fairgrounds is available for this particular weekend.

Food Bank AGM john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - Waste Management and the Stittsville District Lions Club are both going to be front and centre at the upcoming annual general meeting (AGM) of the Stittsville Food Bank. That’s because both Waste Management and the Stittsville District Lions Club are being recognized by the Food Bank this year for the extraordinary assistance which both organizations have provided to the Food Bank. Waste Management provided generous financial assistance to the Food Bank over the past year. It also provided one of the major prizes for the Christmas Basket draw which was held by Scotiabank in Stittsville, with all of the proceeds from the raffle draw going to the Stittsville Food Bank. The Stittsville District Lions Club has been a longtime supporter of the Stittsville Food Bank. At the Christmas

Parade of Lights each year, Lions Club members collect food and monetary donations for the Food Bank by patrolling along the parade route just before the parade. The Stittsville Food Bank uses its AGM each year as a forum to recognize some of the individuals, groups and businesses which provide assistance to the Food Bank. The AGM, including this volunteer recognition ceremony, will get underway on Monday, May 14 at 7 p.m. when refreshments will be served. The AGM itself will see the tabling of the Food Bank’s annual and financial reports as well as the election of officers for the coming year. The AGM will be held again this year at the old fire hall on Stittsville Main Street at Carleton Cathcart Street, next to the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library. Members of the public are most welcome to attend the event.

PC nomination John Curry

john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - This nomination meeting to select a candidate to represent the Progressive Conservative party in the riding of

Carleton-Mississippi Mills for the next provincial election will be held on Saturday, May 12 at the Stittsville Legion Hall on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville. Registration will be at 9:30 a.m. with the meeting getting underway at 10 a.m. Only members of the Carleton-Mississippi Mills Provincial PC Association who hold current memberships as of April 20, 2012 will be eligible to vote at this nomination meeting.

Jack MacLaren, a PC MPP, is the current MPP for the Carleton-Mississippi Mills riding. He won the nomination in a bitterly contested battle with longtime incumbent MPP Norm Sterling and then easily won election in the last provincial election. It is expected that Mr. MacLaren will be the only one nominated at this May 12th meeting and will easily be named as the partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s candidate in the next provincial election, whenever that may be.

M&M Meat Shops holding annual Charity BBQ Day John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - Saturday, May 12 is fundraising day for M&M Meat Shops in Stittsville. That’s when M& M Meat Shops at Crossing Bridge Square plaza at the corner of Carp Road and Stittsville Main Street will be joining with more than 450 other M&M Meat Shops across Canada to participate in M&M Meat Shops 24th annual Charity BBQ Day. A freshly grilled burger or hot dog, along with a drink and a bag of chips, will be available for a minimum donation of three dollars. For an additional two dollar donation, those at the BBQ can purchase an M&M Meat Shops strawberry shortcake bar. Every penny raised will be going directly to Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada (CCFC) Crohn’s and colitis research. This will all be happening between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 12 outside M&M Meat Shops at the Crossing Bridge Square plaza in Stittsville. Over the past 23 years, M&M Meat Shops, including the one in Stittsville, have raised more than $21.5 million for medical research into inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), a term which covers two similar yet distinct conditions, Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. There are more than 200,000 Canadians suffering from IBD and there is no known cause or cure. Canada has the highest incidence of IBD in the world. This Charity BBQ Day by M&M Meat Shops has grown into CCFC’s largest annual fundraising activity by any single supporter. Using proceeds raised by this Charity BBQ Day over the years as well as other fundraising events, CCFC has funded more than $71 million in medical research projects. Last year the M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day across Canada raised $1.5 million which is also the goal for this year. The M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day began in 1989 when M&M Meat Shops founder Mac Voisin

learned that Canadians suffer from IBD at an unusually high rate. He wanted to both raise awareness of the disease as well as funds to help with research. That’s when M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day was born. The goal is to help find a cure for the disease. M&M Meat Shops, founded in Kitchener in 1980, has grown to more than 450 locations across Canada including the M&M Meat Shops outlet at Crossing Bridge Square plaza in Stittsville. Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada (CCFC) is a volunteer-based registered national charity dedicated to finding the cure for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. CCFC is also committed to educating IBD patients, their families, health professionals and the public about the diseases. Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) includes both Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.

Most people are diagnosed before the age of 30. These diseases affect the digestive system and cause the intestinal tissue to become inflamed, form sores and bleed easily. Symptoms include abdominal pain, cramping, fatigue and diarrhea. Crohn’s disease can affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract from the mouth to the anus. It cannot be cured by drugs or surgery although either or both can help relieve some symptoms. Ulcerative colitis affects only the inner layer of the colon or large bowel. It always starts in the rectum and may extend as a continuous inflammation from there into the rest of the colon. IBD is unpredictable in that most people experience periods of remission but the control and treatment of flare-ups can often require long-term medication, hospitalization or surgery.

on their way to the championship which saw the Jets defeat the Maxtech Raging Racoons, a Quebec team, in the final on Sunday, April 22. The Jets produced lots of timely scoring in the tournament. When combined with the team’s solid defensive play and outstanding goaltending, it led to the championship victory.

Not only is Nordion Inc. – where he is the CEO – one of the world’s leading providers of medical isotopes for diagnosis and treatment of the disease, the company is also the title sponsor of Ride the Rideau, eastern Ontario’s largest singleday cancer fundraiser. Last September, just after riding 100 km from Ottawa to Merrickville in Ride the Rideau, which is organized by The Ottawa Hospital Foundation, West was diagnosed with nonHodgkin’s Lymphoma, a cancer which attacks the body’s immune system. As an avid athlete, he never thought it would happen to him. Not expecting to hear the words, ‘you most likely have cancer’ from his doctor, West was alone when he received his diagnosis. After the initial shock, the hardest part was going home to deliver the news to his wife, Eunice. “The emotional impact of having cancer is huge for you and your family,” he said. “It was such a shock… To go home and tell your wife that the doctor told me I most likely have cancer just shakes you to

Nordion CEO and cancer crusader Steve West will be returning to Ride the Rideau after successfully battling cancer earlier this year. your very foundation of your roots. You can’t imagine what it’s like.” Never one to give up hope, West continued to work and follow his rigorous sports training regimen while receiving treatment at The Ottawa Hospital Cancer Centre (TOHCC). Coincidentally, the treatment he received included participation in a clinical trial – the main fundraising focus of Ride the Rideau. Earlier this year, surrounded by his family, West marked the

end of his treatment by ringing the ceremonial victory bell in the Chemotherapy Unit of TOHCC. More than ever, he realizes the importance of supporting cancer care at The Ottawa Hospital and research at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute. In addition to returning as title sponsor for the third year of Ride the Rideau, West is also captaining his own team on September 8, 2012. While the company has set “a stretch goal” of $70,000, West has committed to personally raising half of that amount. “When I began supporting the efforts of The Ottawa Hospital to improve cancer care in our community, I never thought I would be a patient here myself,” he said. “I experienced firsthand what the support of events like Ride the Rideau do,” he said. “It makes such a difference. Thanks to the treatment I received at The Ottawa Hospital, I’m here for my family, my work, and to cycle another day.” To support Steve West’s ride, or to register for Ride the Rideau, visit www.ridetherideau.ca.

Your Community Newspaper

April 30th, 2012 DEVELOPMENT PUBLIC MEETING: STITTSVILLE OF TOMORROW Please join me at a public meeting on Tuesday, May 29th to discuss the development taking place in Stittsville. The meeting will be held at Sacred Heart Catholic High School, 5870 Abbott Street East. We are currently experiencing growth in our community and this will continue in the next few years. I have arranged for City staff to be present in order to provide an overview of what to expect in the coming years and how you can be involved in shaping the future of Stittsville. I encourage residents to arrive between 6:30-7 pm to review display boards and to speak one on one with City staff. A formal presentation will take place at 7pm followed by a second open house to provide residents with another opportunity to review some of the plans and speak with staff and myself directly. If you are unable to attend the meeting I will have the PowerPoint from the meeting posted on my website shortly after. I also suggest you visit my website www.shadqadri.com and click on the Planning & Development tab to review some of the development applications currently underway in Stittsville. For more information on this, please contact my office.

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH PROGRAM This program is part of the Ottawa Police Services and helps residents to combat crime in the most effective way - before it starts - by reducing the opportunities for crime to occur. The program thrives on mutual aid. By simply getting to know the neighbours around you, you’ll be well positioned to recognize someone or something that’s suspicious. Stittsville is privileged to have 4 Neighourhood Watch programs in place at this time with a 5th on the way. They are running in the following areas of Stittsville: Jackson Trails, Crossing Bridge, Granite Ridge and Arrowwood. The 5th Neighbourhood Watch will soon be debuting in the Deer Run area of Stittsville. The official kick off is slated for May 17th from 6pm to 8pm at Coyote Park. (In case of inclement weather, it will be moved to upper room at the Johnny Leroux Community Arena, 10 Warner Colpitts Drive.) I hope area residents will consider coming out on May 17th. Should any resident wish to join the Neighbourhood Watches already in place or wanting to start a new Watch in their neighbourhood, simply contact my office. I would be pleased to connect you with the Coordinator of that particular Neighbourhood Watch or connect you with staff involved with this program. Getting involved is easy and of no cost to the resident.

SHAKESPEARE’S DEAD ‘A Company of Fools’ is presenting ‘Shakespeare’s Dead,’ a play dedicated to the many narratives of Shakespeare. A misfit band of actors is suddenly jolted into a creative frenzy when the spirit of William Shakespeare descends upon one of the players. Rap, improvisation, slapstick, and all the shenanigans you know and love from the Fools in a 60 minute exploration of some of Shakespeare’s greatest deaths. The play will run from April 30th - May 11th at venues across the City. Their opening night performance will take place in Stittsville at Stittsville United Church, 6255 Fernbank Road. The doors open at 7:00 pm each evening. Seating is on a first come basis and the performances begin at 7:30pm sharp. The cost of the performance is an affordable Pass-the-Hat price! For further information, including details on their Flash Mob, check out their website: http://fools. ca/

Based on tire track marks that were left in the grass at the scene, the Ottawa Police Service suspects that an ATV was used to transport the stolen tires away from the scene. A similar incident occurred at Car-O-Practor several days before but nothing was stolen in this earlier incident.

Showing disapproval with â&#x20AC;&#x153;the lookâ&#x20AC;?

MARY COOK Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories My sister Audrey said Mother had what she called â&#x20AC;&#x153;the look.â&#x20AC;? She said it was worse than a slap on the side of the head. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take me long to figure out what she meant after I was subjected to â&#x20AC;&#x153;the lookâ&#x20AC;? when I committed a minor act of disobedience in front of a neighbour. She had dropped in for tea one afternoon. All I did was take the first cookie off the plate, which I learned very quickly, was just not done until the guest was first served. I got â&#x20AC;&#x153;the lookâ&#x20AC;? and quickly put the cookie back on the plate, which earned me another â&#x20AC;&#x153;look.â&#x20AC;? I was then faced with the problem of trying to figure out how to correct my social error, so I decided the best thing to do was re-take the same cookie and get out of there. Which I did and then I ran out of the house and practically swallowed it whole as I passed through the summer kitchen. Mother used â&#x20AC;&#x153;the lookâ&#x20AC;? a lot when we went to church. If any one of us five kids squirmed too much for her liking, we got â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the look.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; If that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work, it was followed by a sharp jab on the knee. Mother was able to accomplish the jab without taking her eyes off the pulpit, which always amazed me. I could never figure out how she knew who was acting up without even looking our way. This confirmed for me what Audrey once said: Mother had eyes in the back of her head, although I was never able to actually see that she had an extra set of eyes under her thick black hair. My brother Emerson said her jabs were sharp as a knife. There was never any comment with

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the look.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; It was enough to send the message of her disapproval. It was often directed towards Father, who paid absolutely no attention at all to it. Mother could never get used to Father cooling his tea in his saucer. Although he did it almost every meal and as Audrey said, she should have been used to it by now. Mother would send him â&#x20AC;&#x153;the lookâ&#x20AC;? as soon as he tipped the tea out and then carefully lift the saucer to his lips, often giving it a few soft puffs of air first. And of course, if any one of us acted up during a meal, that was enough to warrant â&#x20AC;&#x153;the look.â&#x20AC;? Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put too much food in your mouth at once, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make a stab for the last sausage on the platter, remember to say please and thank you and heaven help you if you were caught with your eyes open during Grace. Those misdemeanors all deserved â&#x20AC;&#x153;the look.â&#x20AC;? Well away from earshot, Emerson once said Mother must have had her eyes open herself during Grace to see one of us breaking this cardinal rule. Audrey reminded Emerson that Mother could see things when no one else could. Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s whole face changed when she was giving â&#x20AC;&#x153;the look.â&#x20AC;? She had sharp brown eyes and she would bring them down to thin slits and even though you could barely see the pupils, they could bore right through you. Her eyebrows came together and formed a straight line across her forehead. Sometimes she would purse her lips as if getting ready to say something, but she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to utter a word. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The lookâ&#x20AC;? was enough. Mother had to be close to you to ad-

minister her next form of reprimand if â&#x20AC;&#x153;the lookâ&#x20AC;? didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work. She wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think twice of giving the brothers a sharp swat on the side of their head. Sometimes it hit the ear dead-on. Emerson said when that happened; his ears rang for three days. Audrey said he was exaggerating. For reasons I was never able to figure out, Audrey and I were subjected only to â&#x20AC;&#x153;the look.â&#x20AC;? I could count on one hand the number of times I took a slap on the ear. That probably had more to do with the fact that my sister and I rarely got into serious trouble. And we certainly never came to blows like the three brothers did. My older and much wiser sister said girls were expected to act like ladies. That meant good manners, gentle behaviour and certainly never stoop to physical attacks unless absolutely necessary. As my sister got older, she started to develop â&#x20AC;&#x153;the lookâ&#x20AC;? just like Mother. My three brothers completely ignored her, knowing full well she would have met her match if she had to resort to slapping them on the side of their head if â&#x20AC;&#x153;the lookâ&#x20AC;? didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work. I tried â&#x20AC;&#x153;the lookâ&#x20AC;? on Emerson once. He managed to put me in the ice part of the ice box one day, almost giving me a heart attack. He was too big for me to cuff him on the side of the head when he let me out, so I gave him what I considered my most hateful â&#x20AC;&#x153;look.â&#x20AC;? He ran from the house laughing his head off. I figured I had a long way to go before I mastered â&#x20AC;&#x153;the lookâ&#x20AC;? like Mother and Audrey.

From soup to cookies, mint adds special flavour Mint is one of the most versatile herbs for the kitchen. It can be used in soups, salads, sauces, jellies, desserts, even cookies. It can be used to make either hot or iced tea, yet its flavour also complements cooked lamb and trout. You can chop the leaves, add them to melted butter and drizzle it over cooked new potatoes for an old-fashioned English dish. This week’s recipe appeared in my column several years ago and was so popular that I wanted to pass it along to anyone who may have missed it. It makes a cookie that’s similar to shortbread, but with the flavour of fresh mint. It will be another month or so before the new mint is ready to pick. Look for it in late May or early June at farmers’ markets, or ask friends and neighbours if they have some in their gardens. To make these cookies, you’ll need about 12 stems of mint with full-grown leaves. Garden Mint Cookies * half cup butter, softened * half cup white sugar * one egg yolk * half tsp. vanilla * 1.5 cups flour * 1.5 tsp. baking powder * one-eighth tsp. salt * three tbsp. milk

PAT TREW Food ‘n’ Stuff * one cup fresh mint leaves, finely chopped To prepare the mint, remove the leaves from the stems. Discard the stems. Lay several of the mint leaves parallel on your cutting board, then with a sharp knife, slice them very thinly. Once all the leaves have been sliced, pile them on the board, and chop them into very small pieces. They should be about the size of dried basil. In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Stir in the egg yolk and vanilla. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Add a third of the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture and stir well. Add half of the milk, and stir again. Repeat with another third of the dry ingredients and the rest of the milk. Stir the mint into the cookie batter, then add the last of the flour mixture. Mix well. Shape the dough into two logs about 20 centimetres long. Wrap each one in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least two hours, or until firm. Unwrap the dough and cut it into slices half a centimetre wide, placing them on a greased baking sheet about 2.5 centimetres apart. Bake at 350 F (175 C) for 10-12 minutes or until the bottom edge is light brown. Remove from the oven, and cool on wire racks. Makes about three dozen cookies.

penter ants. However, healthy, hard, dry wood is more difficult for carpenter ants to channel through. Therefore, eliminating moisture from the home is one way to keep these insects from setting up nests indoors. Much like termites, carpenter ants will swarm in the spring to establish new nests. It is not uncommon to see winged ants in search of a new roost. If winged queens are repeatedly found indoors, this is a good indication that there is a nest inR0011382496/0503

eat the wood they inhabit. Rather, they tunnel through soft woods creating caverns where they nest and lay eggs. Tunnels created by carpenter ants will be smooth and free of debris, called frass. Wood that has been damaged by termites will be rugged and potentially filled with sawdust shavings or mud. Moisture is the friend of carpenter ants. Moist wood is especially susceptible to damage from these ants. Rotting tree trunks, stumps, or roots are often infested with car-

late spring season is the carpenter bee. Similar in appearance to a bumblebee, carpenter bees are large bees that can be found hovering around the outside of a home. Carpenter bees can be distinguished from bumblebees because their abdomen is shiny black, not furry like a bumblebee. Carpenter bees can do damage to a home by boring perfectly round holes into wood structures. Common nesting sites include eaves, window trims, facia boards, siding, wooden shakes, decks, and outdoor furniture. They lay their eggs inside, which will later develop into larvae. While carpenter bee damage is mostly superficial, predators such as birds like woodpeckers may cause additional damage by digging through the wood to eat carpenter bee larvae. Carpenter bees prefer to attack wood that is bare, weathered and unpainted. Therefore, the best way to deter the bees is to paint all exposed wood surfaces, especially those which have a history of being attacked.

side of the home. There are ways to reduce carpenter ant numbers indoors. Initially, make sure any sources of damp wood are eradicated. If wood is routinely stored indoors, as is the case for firewood, elevate it to provide ample air circulation. Promptly remove tree and shrub stumps and roots around the home. Also trim back any branches that overhang a home. Carpenter ants feed on insects and sweet nectars. Reducing food sources in the home and promptly cleaning up any spills can help prevent the ants from seeking out sweet sources inside. If carpenter ants prove to be troublesome foes, consult with an exterminator who can assess the situation and propose a treatment option. If carpenter ants are merely found outdoors doing their job as nature’s wood decomposers, leave them be.

REAL ESTATE How to find the right real estate agent Buying a home is often a difficult thing to do. The stress of making such a big financial commitment is a struggle for many home buyers, whether they have purchased a home in the past or are doing so for the first time. One way to make the process a lot less anxietyridden is to work with a real estate agent you can trust. Those who have previously purchased a home might already have a strong relationship with a real estate agent. But for those moving out of their current location or buying for the first time, finding the right real estate agent requires some effort. Those in the market for an agent to help navigate the home buying process should consider the following tips. * Find a buyer’s agent. Real estate agents are often affiliated with sellers instead of buyer’s. This means their primary goal is to help the seller and not the buyer. When shopping around for a real estate agent, ask companies about their buyer’s agents. Buyers should always have someone with their interests in mind, and not the interests of the sellers. * Find an agent first, then a

property. Many times homes remain listed online or in “home for sale” brochures even if they are under contract or sold. These homes are often luxurious and appealing to a wide array of prospective buyers, and some agencies use them to attract customers. While this isn’t a typical bait and switch, it is a way real estate agencies get customers in the door. It is important to find a real estate agent before looking through home listings. This allows the buyer to choose their agent based on merit and not due to the potentially glitzy houses he or she may have listed previously. * Find someone with a track record. Real estate can be an exciting and financially rewarding industry in which to work. As a result, lots of people want to be real estate agents, even though few succeed and last a long time. When interviewing real estate agents, inquire about their history in the business. A more experienced agent will make things far less stressful and easier, and a long career indicates they are good at what they do. A real estate agent with a long history in the business will likely be a full-time

Your Community Newspaper

agent as well. Prospective buyers should look for a full-time agent, which is not as common as some buyers might think. Many agents work part-time, and buyers could receive less attention as a result. * Don’t place too much emphasis on agency size. Real estate agencies come in all shapes and sizes. When it comes to ability, the size of the agency should not factor in. A smaller independent agency can be just as qualified and reliable as one of the major franchise agencies. Buyers who find someone they trust should go with that person, regardless of how big or small their agency is. * Get a referral. Friends and family members who have been through the buying process before might be great resources. Buyers looking in “Town X” who have friends or family already living there should consult those friends or family and ask for any agent referrals. Those relocating because of work should ask their company to refer an agent. Chances are companies have relocated employees in the past and might have a strong relationship with an agency in town.

ing as possible. Landscaping should be neat and lush. There shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be any obstacles leading to the front of the home. Items that look in disrepair should be mended. Curb appeal does matter. * Use a real estate agent: Many people forgo this step, thinking they can sell their home just as well without an agent and not have to pay commission in the process. A real estate agent is schooled in the process of negotiating the price of an offered home. In fact, the more a homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s selling price, the higher the agentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s profit. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incentive right there. Furthermore, agents know the average prices of similar homes and can help a seller price and market a property correctly. That may add up to a faster sale (and a better offer). * Price it competitively: Some sellers think the higher they price their home the more money theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get for it. The fact is, the longer an overpriced home sits on the market, the less appealing it will appear to buyers. Individuals looking for a home may repeatedly see the listing and wonder whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wrong with the home. Even if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best home in the neighborhood, it may be seen as a

red flag thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best avoided. * Give people what they want: Buyers often prefer updated kitchens and bathrooms. Most buyers out there are not looking for â&#x20AC;&#x153;handyman specials.â&#x20AC;? They want a relatively turn-key property. A kitchen or bathroom that is an eyesore can repel potential buyers. Home shoppers may be more inclined to go closer to asking price if some of the biggerticket items are already completed. * Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be an open book: If a buyer knows that time is of the essence or the home is â&#x20AC;&#x153;priced to sell,â&#x20AC;? he or she may sense that desperation, almost guaranteeing a low-ball offer. Sellers shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let on too much about their reasons for selling or make it seem like theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be in dire straights if the home doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sell quickly. Selling a home under duress is not likely to cause prospective buyers to pony up. * Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be afraid to counter-offer: A buyer who is excited to get an offer on a home in a slow market, but feels the offer is below value, should definitely counter-offer. While the buyer may not accept the counter, he or she may make another offer that is more to the sellerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s liking.

(MS) - The housing market has not yet rebounded to prerecession prices, when buyers seemed to be stepping over one another to bid up the price of homes. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sellers may be lucky to get asking price, with the reality being a certain percentage below. However, that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean sellers should accept bottom-of-the-barrel offers. There are still ways to get the best price possible on an offered home. With sellers hoping to get the most possible for a home and buyers interested in spending the least, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sometimes a battle of wills when it comes to hashing out a confirmed price in the world of real estate. Sellers who wonder whether theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll struggle to get a good offer can hedge their bets in the right direction by employing a few strategies. * What you see is what you get: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult to change first impressions. If a potential buyer pulls up to a home that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give them â&#x20AC;&#x153;warm and fuzzyâ&#x20AC;? feelings immediately, it may be hard to eventually sway opinion of the home -- even if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pristine on the inside. Individuals do judge a book by its cover, which means that effort should be put into making a homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exterior as appeal-

Spring fair at Waldorf School John Curry

john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - Games and activities for children. A puppet play. A luncheon. A display of art. These and more will be featured at a spring fair being held at the Ottawa Waldorf School in Stittsville this Sunday, May 6. This spring fair, which will run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., will take the form of an old fashioned fair. This means traditional games for children, some of which will be challenging. For older children, there will be a rope bridge to best their balance and a catapult to test their aim. Younger children, though, will not be forgotten, as there will be a selection of games and activities. Face painting will be one of these activities. There will also be a puppet play that will be presented twice â&#x20AC;&#x201C; once at 11:30 a.m. and again at 1:30 p.m.

A lunch, prepared and donated by Waldorf parents, will be available for purchase in the main hall. The menu will include BBQ sausages, a popular item from past fairs. For the ďŹ rst time this year, there will be an Art Walk where local artists will be displaying their work. Another highlight of the fair will be Stone Soup, the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s store, which will be open for business. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great place to purchase supplies such as bees wax crayons, watercolour paint, felting supplies, doll making supplies and hand made toys. Everyone is welcome to attend this spring fair. The Ottawa Waldorf School is located on Goulbourn Street but the best way to reach the school is to park in the municipal parking lot on the west side of Stittsville Main Street just south of Abbott Street and then walk to the adjacent school.

I am very friendly and funny and love to play and the rest of the time I spend my energies being affectionate and adorable. As you can see I am handsome, have short grey and white fur. As a special marking look at the tip of my dark tail, just painted it white so that you can easily notice me among the others. A fellow has to try to stand out from the crowd. Now you know for whom to look for. maybe to YOU????
