Artefact collection on view for Doors Open Ottawa ‘14 John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

News - The extensive artefact collection at the Goulbourn Museum at Stanley’s Corners is usually off-limits to the public but this coming weekend is an exception. That’s because its Doors Open Ottawa weekend and the Goulbourn Museum is participating. The Museum itself and its exhibits will be open to the public, as is the case on every weekend, but for Doors Open Ottawa 2014 this Saturday and Sunday, June 7 and 8, the Museum is opening up its artefact collection storage area for visits by the public. This collection is not normally accessible by the public. And what a collection! There are over 8,000 artefacts in the Goulbourn Museum collection and a walk around the shelves holding these artefacts is like a trip back into history. There are sleigh bells, insulators, a

Older folks might remember some of these artefacts from their childhood while younger visitors might marvel at these items from a bygone era. There will be guided tours of the artefact collection, probably every half hour. Goulbourn Museum staff will be in heritage costume as they guide these tours. Museum staff will also be explaining about some of the tools and procedures which are used to properly care for a collection of such artefacts. But there will be more to see at the Museum than just the artefact collection. Re-enactors representing the 100th Regiment of Foot, the British regiment from which many of the original settlers of Richmond and Goulbourn came, will be on hand on both days, Saturday and Sunday, performing drills and talking about the Regiment. The Richmond Spinners and Weavers are to be on hand at the Goulbourn Museum for one of these Doors Open Ottawa days. See MUSEUM, page 2

Museum in Doors Open Ottawa Continued from page 1

In addition, the Goulbourn Museum will be open with its three permanent exhibits on display – one on the 100th Regiment of Foot, one on Goulbourn pioneers and one depicting a village store of the past. The Goulbourn Museum building itself, while not an architectural marvel as even acknowledged in Belden’s Atlas of 1879, does have quite a history. Built in 1873 as the Goulbourn township hall, it served as the site for Goulbourn township council meetings as well as social events over the years. Belden’s Atlas of 1879 describes this township hall, built in 1873, as “a very ordinary

wooden structure, which still stands – but not as a monument to the liberality of the Council of 1873, or a credit to the Township.” The building was later, probably in the 1930’s, covered with its current brick/stone exterior. In 1990, the building was assigned as the home of the Goulbourn Museum by the former township of Goulbourn. It is now one of the community museums in the city which receive funding under the city’s Museum Sustainability Plan. The artefact collection is located in the basement of the adjacent History Centre annex building which was built in 1961 as the Goulbourn township municipal office.

Doors Open Ottawa this year includes about 130 public and private buildings which will be open to the public for free. The Goulbourn Museum is the only such building in the Stittsville/ Richmond/Goulbourn area this year. This is the 13th year for Doors Open Ottawa which is now the second largest Doors Open event in Ontario. For Doors Open Ottawa 2014, the Goulbourn Museum will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. this Saturday, June 7 and then again from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. this Sunday, June 8. The Goulbourn Museum is located at 2064 Huntley Road at Stanley’s Corners just south of Stittsville. Stittsville Main Street becomes

Huntley Road at the Flewellyn Road which is at Stanley’s Corners.

The Goulbourn Museum building, built in 1873 as the Goulbourn township hall, will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both this Saturday, June 7 and this Sunday, June 8 as part of the Doors Open Ottawa program.

Garage sale to raise funds to fight cancer Continued from page 1

This goal is the efforts of the Huntington Properties Group team to raise money for its participation in the Epic Walk For Cancer Care in September. This Epic Walk For Cancer Care is a partnership between the Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation and the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation which raises funds for a variety of cancer-related causes, including the recentlyopened Maplesoft Centre which serves the families of those affected by cancer. The Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation has entered into the partnership with the Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation to help support the Queensway Carleton Hospital-based Irving Greenberg Family Cancer Centre which serves cancer patients in West Ottawa. In the Epic Walk For Cancer Care, the Huntington Properties Group team will direct the funds that it raises, after covering event costs, to the Queensway Carleton Hospital. Other teams and individuals participating in the Walk can do the same thing. The funds directed to the Queensway Carleton hospital will be used in many areas including towards new MRI and CT scan machines which are used in diagnosing and treating cancer. Huntington Properties Group has a Stittsville connection, not only because staff member Lisa Westphal lives in Stittsville but because it is the company which rescued the Orville Station condominium project at the corner of Stittsville Main Street and Orville Street, completing its first phase, building its second phase and now getting ready to complete the third and final phase of the three-building project. At present ten out of 14 staff members at Huntington Properties Group have signed on and will be participating in the Epic Walk for Cancer Care in September. This includes three of the firm’s partners. The Epic Walk For Cancer Care, which will happen on Saturday, Sept. 27, is a 28 kilometer walk across Ottawa to raise funds for the purchase of detection and diagnosis tools for men’s and women’s cancers at the Queensway Carleton hospital and other Ottawa cancer care facilities. The Huntington Properties Group‘s goal for the walk is to raise $15,000 for essential diagnostic and imaging equipment at the Queen-

This equipment will provide support for early detection and monitoring of cancers for both men and women, including treatment for patients in the West Ottawa and Ottawa Valley areas. Alan Whitten, president of Huntington Properties Group, is the executive chair of the Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation Board of Directors. For the past two years, he has encouraged his staff to participate as a team in fundraising events for the hospital. Last year Huntington Properties Group staff participated

in the 50 kilometer bike ride called “Wheels for Wellness,” raising over $11,000 for the Queensway Carleton Hospital. This Saturday’s garage sale at 17 Baywood Drive in Stittsville is a major part of the fund-

Community blood donor clinic in Stittsville on June 24th News - A community blood donor clinic held by Canadian Blood Services will be held in Stittsville on Tuesday, June 24. It will take place from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the gymnasium at Holy Spirit Catholic School at 1383 Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville. To book an appointment for this blood donor clinic, visit the website www.blood.ca or call 1-888-2DONATE (1-888-236-6283). There is always a need for blood donations and the need is ongoing. It often requires numerous units of blood to help just one patient. A car accident victim, for example, can need up to 50 units of blood which means that 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. Up to five donors are needed to provide the blood to help someone through heart surgery. Between two and eight donors are usually needed to help save someone with internal bleeding. Yes, the need continues and only you can make the difference, only you can give the gift of life, a blood donation. Canadian Blood Services is a national, not-for-profit charitable organization that manages the supply of blood and blood products in all of the provinces and territories except for Quebec which has a separate organization, Hema-Quebec, which does the same thing. Canadian Blood Services operates 42 permanent collection sites and more than 20,000 donor clinics each year. This upcoming clinic in Stittsville is one of these donor clinics. Canadian Blood Services collects about 850,000 units of blood annually and then processes the blood into the components and products that are administered to thousands

of patients each year through blood transfusions. It often takes several donors to save someone’s life. For example, up to five donors are needed to provide the blood to help someone through heart surgery. Between two and eight donors are

needed to help save someone with internal bleeding. As many as 50 donors, yes, 50 donors, are needed to help someone seriously hurt in a car crash. It is a fact that every minute of every day, someone in Canada needs blood. You can help and indeed

Blood Services are most appreciated because 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.

Protect Yourself and Prevent the Bite! Warm weather has arrived and outdoor adventure has begun. Ottawa Public Health (OPH) is reminding residents and visitors to be cautious of unwanted company who may latch on for a free ride – ticks. Ticks vary in size and colour depending on their age and feeding status. While Ontario is home to a numb e r of different species of ticks, it’s the black-legged tick (Ixodes scapularis; also called the deer tick) that we have to worry about as it can carry or spread the bacteria Borrelia burgdorferi that causes Lyme Disease (LD). Though not all black-legged ticks are infected with Borrelia burgdorferi, those that are infected must be attached to their human host for a minimum of 24 hours for the bacteria to be transferred into the human blood stream hence the importance of catching it early. Symptoms of LD usually begin three days to one month after being bitten by an infected tick. Individuals that acquire LD often develop a round, red rash that slowly expands away from the tick bite resembling a “bull’s eye” pattern. Other flu-like symptoms include – fever, chills, fatigue, headache, muscle and joint pain. If left untreated, LD can cause neurological symptoms, rheumatologic symptoms or cardiac abnormalities weeks to years after onset. As a result, residents are encouraged to see their doctor if they think they might have contracted LD. Ticks hide in tall grasses or shrubs and crawl onto human or animal hosts when given the opportunity. Humans, dogs, birds and deer populations are all ideal hosts for ticks.

As well, help make your environment less favourable to ticks: • Keep the grass in your yard mowed; • Remove brush and fallen leaves from the edges of property, especially if your yard borders a wooded area or fields of tall grass; • Reduce the attraction of small critters such as mice and voles by cleaning up areas under and around bird feeders; • Discourage deer from entering your yard, as ticks also feed on these animals; • Place children’s play structures away from wooded areas. By following these simple tips, you can better enjoy outdoor adventures with your family and friends. In the event a tick bites you, follow these steps to effectively remove it: 1. Using tweezers, grasp the ticks head as close to the skin as possible and pull slowly until the tick is removed. Do not twist, squeeze or rotate the tick. Do not use a match, lotion or anything else on the tick. 2. Place the tick in an empty pill vial or zip-lock bag with a moistened paper towel. 3. Wash your bite site with soap and water.

To avoid tick bites, take these easy steps to protect yourself and your family:

If you have a “tick key”, you can:

• Apply an approved insect repellent containing DEET to exposed skin and clothing;

2. Slide the tick into the specially tapered slot.

• Wear long pants, a long sleeved shirt, shoes and socks to avoid exposed skin; • Tuck pants into socks; • Wear light coloured clothing; • Stay to trails and avoid walking in the long grass; • Check yourself, children and pets for ticks, pay special attention to the scalp, groin, armpits, and behind the knees.

1. Place the key over the tick in the tear-drop hole.

3. Pull the key away from the skin. The tick should come out easily. Disinfect your tick key after each use. Ticks that have bitten humans may be submitted for testing to OPH, by appointment. As this is a surveillance and identification program only, results may not be available for a number of months. Your physician conducts all clinical case management relating to your tick exposure. For more information or questions regarding tick submissions and Lyme disease, please visit ottawa.ca/LymeDisease or contact Ottawa Public Health at 613-580-6744 (TTY: 613-580-9656).

Explore Ottawa’s cultural diversity

T

he city is offering a wonderful opportunity for residents to explore Ottawa’s cultural diversity and rich heritage this weekend. Since 2002, more than 700,000 visitors have taken advantage of Doors Open Ottawa, a free annual event that provides insider access to buildings such the Embassy of the Republic of Armenia, the Royal Canadian Mint and the Ottawa Police Service building. The event will unlock the doors of normally offlimit buildings such as ambassador’s homes and the Britannia Water Purification Plant. This year’s tour, on June 7 and 8, will feature more than 120 buildings. The Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario will participate in the event as part of its 40th birthday celebration. Residents are invited to take a behindthe-scenes look at the hospital’s “cutting-edge� research and visit labs, surgical suites, a butterfly garden as well as a chance to check out its famous Karsh portraits. Visitors can select from a variety of modes of transportation: walking, driving, cycling – Doors Open Ottawa will provide a free shuttle bus, which will offer stops within walking distance of 50

buildings on the tour. For some residents, the day will present an opportunity to learn about other cultures or religions by visiting buildings such as Blessed Sacrament Church, located on 194 Fourth Ave., the Greek Orthodox Church,1315 Prince of Wales Dr., the Hindu Temple of Ottawa-Carleton Inc., 4835 Bank St. The Ottawa Main Mosque, 251 Northwestern Ave., or the Protection of the Holy Virgin Russian Orthodox Church, 99 Stonehurst Ave. Mayor Jim Watson hit the nail on the head when he referred to the tour as an opportunity to experience first-hand some of Ottawa’s architectural treasures. Organizers say this year’s buildings are an “eclectic mix of modern and heritage architecture,� including churches, mosques, government buildings together with artist studios and private businesses. Some examples include the Arts Court, 2 Daly Ave., the Mercury Court Building, 377 Dalhousie St., the C.D. Howe Building , 235 Queen St., the Carleton Masonic Lodge, 3704 Carp Rd., or the First Baptist Church, 140 Laurier Ave. West. We should never take our history and culture for granted.

Life turning into a series of beeps

M

y friend and I bumped into each other at the gym and were discussing what it needed. There was the usual list of complaints, despite the fact that it is a very nice gym. Then he said something that struck me. “We need to get rid of the beeps,� he said. From that moment, I began hearing beeps that I’d never heard before. This gym, like other gyms has machines that beep. They beep when you change settings. Because they are spiffy new machines – treadmills, bicycles, ellipticals and the like – there are lots of settings to change. You can change the speed, the incline, the degree of difficulty, the type of readout. You can turn the TV on and off and change the channels. If you increase to six miles per hour from one mile per hour, the machine will beep for every 10th of a mile. They aren’t that loud. If you never think about beeps, they probably don’t annoy you. Once you start thinking about them, they do. Sorry to make you think about them. We are so used to beeps in our lives that we may have forgotten to ask why they are there. What favour is the machine doing for us when it beeps?

We seem to want a noise that tells us when there’s email, even though we can see the icon on the screen. It’s easy to stop your car from honking when you lock it, but most people don’t bother, which is yet another reason why shopping centre parking lots are among the least pleasant places on the planet. The sad fact, really sad to my friend, is that we have become a beep-addicted society. The number of devices that beep grows every day and our efforts to control them are laughably ineffective. There is no will to do it. It’s no surprise, is it, that the federal government is giving in to those who demand that their electronic devices be available to them at every possible second on airplanes. Transport Minister Lisa Raitt announced last week that passengers will be able to use their portable electronic devices during takeoff, ascent, descent and landing flights, as long as the devices are in non-transmitting, or flight, mode. “If you think about it,� she said, “here you are trying to finish a memo, or you’re

Hair Donation Ottawa raises $93,000 john.curry@metroland.com

News - The funds were raised for cancer research and so what better place could there be for the formal presentation of the $93,000 raised than a research lab at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO). With a backdrop of a team of researchers, a giant cheque representing the $93,000 raised by Hair Donation Ot-

tawa 2014 was formally presented by Hair Donation Ottawa founder Helene Hutchings to cancer researchers Dr. David Stodjl and Dr. John Bell on Thursday afternoon, May 29. Once a $1,000 donation to Angel Hair for Kids is taken from the $93,000 raised, the rest of the funds will be divided equally between the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute and the CHEO Research Institute for use in funding

cancer research. Hair Donation Ottawa, founded in 2011 by cancer survivor Helene Hutchings as a way of giving back after her own battle with cancer, began as a local Stittsville event but since its inception in 2011, it has grown. This year it involved 25 hair stylists and 150 participants with the hair stylist salon at Algonquin College as the main site for the event. Last year the event raised

$31,000 so that this year’s $93,000 total tripled last year’s effort. This was thanks to efforts like those of Andy Love of Kanata who himself raised $7,900, the largest single amount raised by a participant in Hair Donation Ottawa 2014. Besides raising funds for cancer research, Hair Donation Ottawa also produced hundreds of inches of hair which are donated to Angel Hair for Kids along with a $1,000 donation. Angel Hair for Kids provides wigs for young cancer patients. Hair Donation Ottawa in-

sists that participants must be willing to donate six-plus inches of hair or have a head shaved or a beard shaved. Hair stylists from across Ottawa donated their time and talent to give a free wash, cut and style to those who donate their hair or who have their heads or beards shaved. This year’s event happen on Sunday, April 27 at Algonquin College.

therapies. The CHEO Research Institute is the research arm of CHEO that works to create new knowledge and evidence to help provide world-class treatment of cancer as well as a full spectrum of pediatric topics. Angel Hair for Kids is a Canadian non-profit program that provides wigs to financially disadvantaged children who have lost their hair due to medical treatments. Helene Hutchings works at the Coldwell Banker office at the corner of Stittsville Main Street and Hobin Street in Stittsville.

Checking tire pressure

Consultation about proposed walk zone and bell time changes Special to the News

Jonathan Mercier of the 1st Stittsville Scouts checks the air pressure in a tire at the car wash/tire pressure check fundraising event which the Scouts held at the Express Mart Ultramar gas bar on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville last Saturday. The funds were being raised for the Stittsville Food Bank. The car wash event is part of the Scouts earning an environmental badge.

News - A consultation session about proposed walk zone and bell time changes at Stittsville area schools is being held this coming Tuesday, June 10 starting at 7 p.m. at Sacred Heart High School in Stittsville. The session is being held by the Ottawa Student Transportation Authority (OSTA) which looks after the provision of school bussing for both the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board and the Ottawa Catholic School Board. The session will include a 30 minute presentation by OSTA staff on the current initiative to introduce a uniform, standardized set of walk zone maps for all schools in the city of Ottawa based on a standardized set of walking hazards. The presentation will also deal with any proposed bell time changes and walk zone map changes. The presentation will also deal with OSTA’s Student Active Transportation Program that sees OSTA working with the school boards, Ottawa Public Health, Green Communities Canada and the city of Ottawa in assisting students who walk or bike to school. The session will also include a review of walk zone maps for any schools where more than 15 students will be impacted by proposed changes. Reasons will be provided for making the changes to the walk zone.

The presentation session will be followed by an open house in which those present will be able to speak with OSTA staff and/or submit feedback about the proposals. With regard to bell time changes, it is being proposed that Sacred Heart Catholic High School will see its start time switched to 8 a.m. from the current 8:15 a.m. Another proposed bell time change would affect Holy Spirit Catholic School, with its start time being bumped from 9 a.m. to 9:15 a.m. Another proposed bell time change would see the start time for St. Stephen Catholic School move from the current 9 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. There is no bell time change proposed for Guardian Angels Catholic School as its current 9:15 a.m. start time would remain in place. This OSTA consultation session at Sacred Heart will be geared for parents with students at Sacred Heart High School, Holy Spirit Catholic School, St. Stephen Catholic School, Guardian Angels Catholic School, Westwind Public School, St. Philip Catholic School in Richmond and Stittsville Public School. Any decisions on new bell times will see implementation in Sept. 2015, not this coming Sept. The bell time changes are being proposed so that each school bus can service up to three schools within a geographic area whenever possible. This would result in savings.

Food Bank donations needed to fill up shelves Special to the News

News - The Stittsville Food Bank has some empty shelves. These shelves are for some quite specific items which the Stittsville Food Bank would love to see donated by Food Bank supporters. So, just what is needed to fill up these empty shelves? There’s Cheez Whiz, ketchup and mayonnaise. These have been missing from Food Bank shelves for weeks now. And then there’s the juice shelves. There is a need for large cans of apple juice and tomato juice. And don’t forget granola bars – they are needed as well.

If donations of these items can be made, then the Food Bank will not have to go out and purchase them. This will allow the Food Bank to address other needs such as fresh produce for the families that use its services. It is handy to make a food item donation to the Stittsville Food Bank. There are drop off boxes for the Food Bank at Brown’s Your Independent Grocer, at Stittsville Sobeys, at Giant Tiger and at Food Basics. You can purchase the item at the store and then simply place it in the drop off box where Food Bank volunteers will gather it up and it will end up on the Food Bank shelves.

What’s happening? A Father’s Day breakfast will be held at the Legion Hall on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville on Sunday, June 15 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon. Everyone is welcome to attend. Only $6 per person.

View a new exhibit of how World War One and World War Two impacted the social history of Goulbourn

township. Everyone welcome. Free admission. Drop by, commemorate the anniversaries of the two World Wars and enjoy a day of fun and activities. The Glen Scottish Restaurant and Pub will be on site with its renowned fish and chips.

The Stittsville Goulbourn Horticultural Society is holding its June meeting on Tuesday, June 17 at 7:30 p.m. at the Pretty Street Community Centre at the corner of Pretty Street and Orville Street in Stittsville. Guest speaker Isabelle Nicol will talk about attracting bees and birds to a garden. Everyone is welcome to attend although non-members are asked to pay a small attendance fee. Annual memberships are also available for purchase at the meeting.

A grief workshop on the topic of “suicide” will be held on Saturday, June 21 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon at St. John the Baptist Anglican Church on Fowler Street in the village of Richmond. Grief educator Ian Henderson will be the facilitator for this workshop. To register, please contact Rev. Michel Dubord at 613-8386075. There is no charge to attend but a donation of $10 is suggested.

And even at that, it took over three hours for firefighters to get the brush fire under control. It all happened near the Kimpton Drive/Overland Drive area in the Jackson Trails subdivision north of Hazeldean Road. The Ottawa Fire Services received multiple calls about the fire around 4:30 p.m. and it was declared a working brush fire at 4:43 p.m. A second alarm about the fire was declared at 5:01 p.m. It was not until 7:47 p.m. that the fire was declared under control. Up to 80 firefighters were on scene at the fire, along with more than half a dozen fire vehicles. Even a helicopter was called in to help battle the blaze in certain areas. Fire crews remained on scene late into the evening to assist with the extinguishment of hot spots. Four firefighters were taken to hospital after exhibiting signs of exhaustion battling the fire. They suffered no serious injuries. Up to ten acres of brush area was burned in the fire.

Youth in community will be focus at Park Party and BBQ Special to the News

News - Youth in the community are going to be front and centre at the annual Park Party and BBQ hosted by city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri at Village Square Park in Stittsville on Saturday, June 14. Each year councillor Qadri selects a group or individual to benefit from the donations that are received at the BBQ. This year the BBQ will be supporting the Goulbourn Middle School Dreamcatchers, a class at the school that is creating awareness for and raising funds for Tysen Lefebvre’s “Mission To A Million.” The GMS Dreamcatchers has set a goal of $3,000 to raise in support of Tysen’s campaign which has a goal of raising one million dollars so that 100 wishes can be granted by Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario. The GMS Dreamcatchers have already done some fundraising including the sale of smoothies at school and a fundraising afternoon at the Kiwi Kraze self-serve yogurt shop in Stittsville but this Park Party and BBQ at Village Square Park are being counted

on as a major fundraiser for the group. Besides the GMS Dreamcatchers, this Park Party and BBQ this year will see the involvement of a number of grade seven and eight students from Sacred Heart High School who will be showcasing innovative inventions that they developed as part of their participation in Invention Convention, a program of The Learning Partnership. Besides this youth involvement, this year’s Park Party and BBQ hosted by councillor Qadri will see the presence of personnel from the Ottawa Fire Services, the Ottawa Police Service and the Ottawa Paramedic Service. In addition, there will be the always popular face painting and a balloon artist will be on site to make creative characters for youngsters. There will be seedlings available that will be provided free to those who wish to take them home to plant. This Park Party and BBQ will run on Saturday, June 14 from 12 noon to 4 p.m. at Village Square Park at the corner of Stittsville Main Street and Abbott Street in Stittsville.

Four million dollar fix up for GRC pool Special to the News

News - First it was mould. Now it’s rust. The Goulbourn Recreation Complex (GRC) and, more specifically, its pool area has been closed since late last August and now, due to the extensive work that needs to be done, the pool will be closed until late spring 2015 at the earliest. The discovery of rust in columns of the pool building envelope presents a serious compromise to the structural integrity of the facility’s wall system. Replacement of the steel structure is the only viable solution to the situation.

The cost is estimated at four million dollars. The building’s perimeter walls will have to be demolished to allow access to the columns so that they can be replaced. The larger interior round structural steel columns that support the pool roof do not have corrosion issues. A detailed investigation included a review of the structural adequacy of all components of the structure’s design including the high roof “lantern” area where some of the initial problems had been observed. A computer simulation of the snow loading due to drifting indicated that the steel trusses in this area had not been de-

She provides full scope optometric care for patients of all ages, which complements the services presently in place.

signed to take into account the additional snow loading on the structure that could be caused by drifting. Either the steel trusses of this “lantern” area have to be augmented to address the snow loading or the lantern shape must be removed to eliminate any snow drifting. The work required will also require the removal of the pool’s slide as it has existed up until now. The building envelope surrounding the pool needs to be redesigned to provide a more durable, simplistic building envelope solution that provides for economical construction suited to the environmental complexities of an indoor pool environment. In addition, other renewal works originally targeted for this coming September have been added to the work plan to ensure completion during the current extended closure period. As part of the final design, the design solution will be reviewed by staff as well as an independent building envelope specialist. The city of Ottawa will retain the building envelope specialist to confirm the effectiveness of the new building envelope. This will be in addition to the standard architectural oversight provided by both the consultant and the city’s staff. All possible work associated with the original roof envelope remediation project and mould abatement is complete. Mechanical work also incorporated into the scope of work including the de-humidifier is complete and ready to be commissioned. But work has now stopped at the site pending city council approval of the proposed four

million dollar expenditure from the city’s reserves. The new work needed to address the rust issues at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex pool includes new steel columns on the warm side of the wall complete with epoxy paint finish and raised off the pool deck in order to avoid water from the deck; reinforcing the foundation bases for the round steel columns supporting the roof; installation of a new thermally broken triple glazed “curtain wall” system; removal of the upper “lantern” and replacement with new steel decking and roofing; replacement of rusting doors and frames; installation of a new interior mechanical air distribution system; and new interior finishes. All this adds up to an estimated four million dollars which will include construction, professional services, testing, permits and fees. It is anticipated that with approval of the funding by city council, a tender could be called at the end of June with a contract subsequently awarded. Other parts of the original GRC building constructed in 2000 along with the pool (lobby, initial arena and administration spaces) are being inspected to determine if there are design and construction issues in these areas as well. But any such issues in these areas are not expected to be as significant as those in the pool area. If repair work is needed in these areas, it is expected that funding for them can be accommodated as part of the city’s regular capital budgeting process. See GRC pool, page 25

GRC pool is closed down due to rusted steel Continued from page 24

The GRC includes a pool, two arena pads, a gymnasium, a fitness studio and community meeting rooms. It was constructed in three phases: the first by the former township of Goulbourn in the year 2000, the second by the city of Ottawa in 2008 (gymnasium, fitness studio and meeting rooms), and the third by the city of Ottawa in 2010 (second ice pad). In 2004, observed deterioration to the stone veneer at the pool exterior wall resulted in the identification of renewal needs. Further investigation led to a detailed program of remediation work that started in 2005. The city did initiate legal action against the original contractor and the architect of record in 2005, resulting in additional work by the contractor at no cost to the city and some com-

pensation awarded in 2007. No issues have been discovered with the work done in the second phase in 2008 or the third phase in 2010, both undertaken by the city of Ottawa. As part of its regular inspection process, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Infrastructure Services Department initiated a structural adequacy review of the GRC in July 2010. The inspection identified evidence of corrosion in the structural steel components of both the pool and the arena which were built in the first phase of the project. In 2012, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Public Works Building Operations staff raised concerns with the building including leakage from the â&#x20AC;&#x153;lanternâ&#x20AC;? which is the elevated roof structure surrounded by windows above the pool. Identified concerns revolved around the venting/air circulation, moisture and an overall lack of air tightness in the

building envelope. A detailed thermographic infrared imagery wall survey by the IRC Building Sciences Group was undertaken to identify areas where head loss and thermal bridging were happening. A detailed review of the mechanical system that services the indoor pool enclosure was also undertaken. This review concluded that the condensation issues within the building are due to defects in the building envelope and that these defects had to be rectified before making changes to the mechanical (HVAC) system. A renewal project was approved in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2013 budget and remediation work started during the poolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scheduled shutdown between Aug. 26 and Oct. 6, 2013. While undertaking this work, mould was discovered throughout the ceiling which led to an increased scope of work and a re-

vised completion date of Dec. 2013. This completion date was subsequently extended to June 2014 because of additional mould discovered in the walls surrounding the pool. As the remediation progressed and all of the interior finishes were removed within the pool area, significant rust to the building envelope steel structure in the ceiling and walls was revealed. Further investi-

gations including a steel composition analysis confirmed that the structure steel was deteriorated. In Feb. 2014 it was announced that the pool would remain closed until further notice. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legal services branch is now reviewing the legal options available to the city to recover any or all of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s costs to remediate the GRC from any party that is legally liable for such costs.

Lawn bowling open house coming up on June 14 Special to the News

Sports - Ever wonder what it is like to lawn bowl? What’s it like to deliver a bowl across a sea of green grass to that white target in the distance? Is it hard or relatively easy

to do? Well, you can find out for yourself, first hand, on Saturday, June 14 when the Goulbourn Lawn Bowling Club is holding an open house at its lawn bowling green beside the Goulbourn Town Hall

(former Goulbourn municipal building) on Huntley Road at Stanley’s Corners just south of Stittsville. The open house will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and you can drop in at any time to “test drive” lawn bowling, as it

were. You just might find that it’s something that you would like to pursue more actively. Everyone is welcome to drop by and take a crack at the game. The cost of membership for new bowlers in their first year

with the Club is only $60. The only equipment that a person needs are flat smooth soled shoes and comfortable shorts and t-shirts. The club provides the lawn bowling balls known as “bowls.” It also provides instruction to help beginners learn the game. The Goulbourn lawn Bowling Club has its lawn bowling green on Huntley Road next to the city of Ottawa town hall (former Goulbourn municipal building) at Stanley’s Corners. This year lawn bowling is taking place on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. And, as is the tradition at the Club, there will be refreshments and coffee available afterwards. In addition, something new is being tried and that is lawn bowling in the evening as required. For more information about the Goulbourn Lawn Bowling Club and the upcoming season, please contact Club president George Burns-Nichol at 613-831-0939 or via email at gjbn@rogers.com. Lawn bowling is a game that goes back to the possibly the 12th century and most definitely to the 13th century. It

is also a sport that suits people from teens through to seniors because of its leisurely pace, its reliance on skill and its non-contact nature. And, first and foremost, it is a game that is mostly played outdoors, with lots of opportunity for conversation and enjoying the fresh air. The objective in lawn bowling is to roll biased (that means that they are weighted, i.e. not perfectly round so that they will curve and bend as they move along the green) bowls so that they stop as close as possible to a smaller ball called a “jack” which has been placed at the other end of the green. Lawn bowling is popular in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Hong Kong, parts of the United States, Japan and, of course, Canada. It is felt that lawn bowling may have begun back in the 12th century but definitely the game was being played in 13th century in England. This has been verified by a manuscript from the 13th century that contains a drawing representing two players aiming at a small cone. See LAWN BOLWING, page 27

WOW! Technology Right at the Bedside CPDMH now has seven WOWs as well as three wall-mounted devices.

June 2nd was a WOW day at Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital (CPDMH). The vision of an integrated electronic patient record got one step closer with the launch of the new Patient Care System (PCS).

Sherrard says the opportunity to collaborate with other local hospitals as part of the Champlain Association of Meditech Partners (CHAMP) project is a key part of CPDMHâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success. The hospitals are working together to develop a regionally shared electronic patient record to support better care.

PCS allows nurses, physiotherapists and dietitians to complete all of their documentation electronically right at the bedside as they monitor each patient. Other care providers can access the patientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history, care plans, ongoing assessments, as well as lab and diagnostic test results - all in one place.

Congratulations to Valerie Sherrard, Manager, Patient Registration/ Records and Meditech Lead and Laurie Scissons, Nurse Manager and Meditech Clinical Lead - and their entire team!

It means an improved workplace for our staff and more coordinated care for our patients.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is an exciting step,â&#x20AC;? adds Toni Surko, CEO. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It means an improved workplace for our staff and more coordinated care for our patients. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all part of how we are shaping a healthy future for our communities.â&#x20AC;?

Munster L.O.B.A. marks its 100th anniversary John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

News - The Ladies Orange Benevolent Association (L.O.B.A.) has been in Munster for 100 years now. The Victoria L.O.B.A. No. 164 of Munster celebrated its centennial milestone with a tea at the Orange Hall on Bleeks Road in Munster last Saturday afternoon. Balloons proclaiming “100” floated at the front of the hall as Munster L.O.B.A. members greeted visitors who dropped in for the tea. Among the visitors was Ann Stevens of Smiths Falls, the Grand Mistress of Ontario East for the L.O.B.A, who congratulated Victoria Lodge No. 164 for its 100 years of existence since its founding in 1914. She joined Victoria Lodge No. 164 Worthy Mistress Marion Jones in a ceremonial cake cutting, with the cake proclaiming the 100th anniversary of Victoria L.O.B.A. No. 164 of Munster. Victoria L.O.B.A. No. 164 member Lillian Hobbs gave a brief overview of the history of L.O.B.A. No. 164, focusing on the Lodge’s founding in 1914 and subsequent special anniversary events such as the 50th anniversary banquet at Munster United Church in April, 1964; the 60th anniversary celebration on May 26, 1974 at Munster United Church, the 70th anniversary on July 5, 1984 and the 80th anniversary potluck supper celebration on May 5, 1994. Victoria Lodge L.O.B.A. No. 164 of Munster had its beginnings in April, 1914 when Polly Featherstone and nine members of her L.O.B.A. Degree Team were met on April 28

of that year at the Ashton train station by Robert Cathcart and M.G. Hill with two double carriages and teams of horses. They transported their guests to their homes where they were supper guests. Following supper, everyone gathered at the Loyal Orange Lodge Hall No. 917 of Munster to organize a new branch of the

Ladies Orange Benevolent Association which bore the identification “No. 164.” Sixteen ladies and two men had submitted the required fee and signed application to create this new branch of the L.O.B.A. A dispensation was granted from the Grand Lodge of British America with the following names on

The first Worthy Mistrees was Maud Hobbs while the Deputy Mistress was Bertha Cathcart. After initiation, lunch and Second Degree were completed, the guests from Ottawa returned to the Cathcart and Hill homes. In the morning, they had breakfast and then were taken to the station at Ashton to catch the midmorning train to Ottawa. This initial organization meeting was followed by a special meeting on May 19, 1914 to decide upon a name for the new branch. It was unanimously decided to call the new branch “Victoria.” This new L.O.B.A. branch held its meetings in the Orange Hall at Munster, a privilege granted by the Orange Hall that has existed down to this day. In the early years, some L.O.B.A. sisters walked up to three miles to attend a meeting. Others were more fortunate, getting a ride in a horse and buggy. On April 28, 1964, Victoria L.O.B.A. No. 164 marked its 50th anniversary with a banquet at the Munster United Church. Five charter members who attended this anniversary dinner were Mrs. George Jinkinson, Mrs. Herman Cassidy, Mrs. William Massey, Mrs. Guy Reid and Mrs. Ellard Massey. See MUNSTER, page 29

Lodges of the L.O.B.A. (Ladies Orange Benevolent Association) were founded beginning in 1894 in Canada to provide women with an opportunity to actively support the principles espoused by the Loyal Orange Association and to exercise benevolent activities. The Loyal Orange Association in Canada

is an organization for Protestant men and women who wish to preserve, maintain and promote the institution and principles of democracy in Canada while protecting their members’ faith and heritage. Orange organizations, in one form or another, have been in existence in various parts of the world since 1688 when Prince William of Orange arrived in England to defend the liberties of Englishmen and the Protestant religion.

News - The South Carleton Storm Surge recently travelled to Toronto for the annual National Show Choir Competition. Excitement reigned as the South Carleton Glee Club members aka Storm Surge got on a bus to make the trip to Toronto to compete for national honours. And when there’s a group of music-loving singers and musicians travelling on a bus with guitars and keyboards for five hours, it’s inevitable what happens – a loud, funfilled practice or jam session. The Glee Club had prepared for many hours for their performance at this National Show Choir Competition. The group’s performance had a very deep concept behind it, telling what life is like for a young teenage girl who is having her child taken away by child services. Songs such as “On My Own,” “Turning Tables,” and “Perfect” were pieced together to form an appropriate play list for this performance. Competing against many other schools from across Canada, the South Carleton Storm Surge took to the stage. It was a great performance that evoked a wild crowd reaction and bringing satisfaction to the choir for a performance well done. The final results showed the South Carleton Glee Club placing third in its category. This high placing also came with $1,000 worth of Yamaha music equipment for the school. Now the Glee Club is back at work, preparing and getting ready for next year’s competition.

Development in Richmond going ahead after mediated settlement John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

News - New houses may be built on the western development lands in Richmond as early as next year. Frank Cairo of Caivan Homes, which has proposed development on lands both north and south of Perth Street at the western edge of the village, admits that constructing homes in 2015 is aggressive thinking but that is the timeline that he suggested last Friday, just days after the Ontario Municipal Board had ratified a mediated settlement about the Caivan development proposal involving the city of Ottawa, the Richmond Village Association (RVA) and the developer. Mr. Cairo still has about 200 conditions related to the draft plan of subdivision approval that will need to be satisfied before the development can proceed but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mr. Cairoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next challenge. The first homes to be built will be located south of Perth Street, Mr. Cairo said. The exact phasing and location still have to be determined. One key to reaching a mediated settlement prior to a scheduled OMB hearing on the matter was Mr. Cairoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voluntary decision to reduce the number of housing units in his development proposal from 1,000 units to 750 units. He said that he made this concession voluntarily at the â&#x20AC;&#x153;11th hourâ&#x20AC;? before the OMB hearing as a matter of good faith with the RVA. He expressed pleasure that the development as amended has been

favourably accepted by both the city and the RVA. He said that he feels that what is now proposed for these lands will end up being something that the village and its residents can be proud of in the future. He said that reducing the unit count for the development will mean that some lots will be larger and that there will be less attached housing with more single family homes. Mr. Cairo noted, though, that the lower unit count on these lands does have impacts, meaning less growth in the village and hence less economic spinoff. It also means that infrastructure costs will have to be met with less new home building. All growth related costs will be paid for by growth. But Mr. Cairo is happy with the mediated settlement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the end of the day, we are all comfortable and satisfied where we have ended up,â&#x20AC;? Mr. Cairo said. He said that things have ended up so that his development will provide a housing product that will have made the delay in approval worth the while. City of Ottawa Rideau-Goulbourn ward councillor Scott Moffatt, who had been kept up to date on the mediation negotiations, is pleased that the developmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reduction to 750 housing units which is a number which he calls decent. He said that the reduction in houses will mean greater setbacks, more space for trees and more green space to absorb storm water runoff. He feels that the reduction in the

number of housing units for the Caivan lands will help in negotiations with Mattamy Homes which has proposed 1,100 housing units for the southern part of the western development lands in Richmond. He notes that the Richmond Community Design Plan calls for less density in these southern lands than in those closer to Perth Street. Councillor Moffatt said that the city will need to undertaken some drainage work improvements for the Van Gaal and Arbuckle drains to facilitate the drainage from the Caivan lands. John Shearer of the Richmond Village Association, who was involved with the negotiations, said that this mediated settlement will set a precedent for what happens not only in Richmond in the future but also in other villages in the city. He said that there were 36 issues that needed to be resolved in the negotiations and he praised Mr. Cairo for being flexible, allowing a reasonable solution to be worked out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This means now that development will go ahead,â&#x20AC;? he said, providing that all of the 200 or so conditions associated with the draft plan approval of the Caivan development are met. He admitted that these developments in the western development lands will â&#x20AC;&#x153;forever change Richmondâ&#x20AC;? but he is convinced that the RVA came away with the best possible result working with Mr. Cairo. He feels that the new development will be done in a way that it is of benefit to the whole community.

LANSDOWNE PARK By Jim Watson

Since long before I ran for City Council in Capital Ward in 1991, people had been asking what we should do with Lansdowne Park. It was a historical landmark, on that everyone could agree. But should it be preserved as it is? Should it be renovated? Should it be torn down? These were some of the many questions that were asked about Lansdowne, without answers, from before my time as a Councillor right up until only a few years ago. It was clear that the status quo at Lansdowne was not sustainable. A crumbling stadium surrounded by a sea of asphalt was an eyesore for the city especially when the beautiful Aberdeen Pavilion sat in the middle of it. But what to do? This council inherited a plan that would see Lansdowne 0ARKTRANSFORMEDINTOAMIXED USEFACILITY4HEPLANNEEDED work and we worked hard to not only improve it but also to get shovels in the ground and implement it so that years of indecision would be behind us. Some people raised concerns about our plan for Lansdowne and I agree that neither the process by which it came about nor the plan itself is perfect. But perfection is the enemy of getting things done. Our plan means a signiďŹ cant improvement and revitalization of Lansdowne and I am thrilled that it is almost complete.

Gymnasium becomes art gallery at Frederick Banting open house John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

News - The gymnasium at the Frederick Banting Alternate Program became an art gallery on Thursday, May 29 for the school’s annual art show and open house. And what a display of art, all done by the students! It took on many shapes and forms such as a plaster mask painted by Megan Haluca with an acrylic paint, three paper sculptures by Mike Parks, a painting featuring geometric shapes done by Lucas Crocker, a revitalized shoe done by Michaela Dominico, Ben Freeman’s pencil on paper work called “Handscapes” featuring a hand with its fingers spread out like the branches on a tree and Erica Emery’s work featur-

ing nine frames called, quite appropriately “9 Squared.” There was Briar Carruthers’ pencil and chalk pastel on paper showing train tracks disappearing into the horizon. There were also longboards and skateboards that were on display with their unique shapes and custom artwork, all made by students. The art was set up around the gymnasium including across the front of the stage area and on all sides of display pillars set up in the gymnasium. There was more than art to see and enjoy at this open house. You had the opportunity to hear student Lillian Zhao playing the guitar in a hallway. Or you could see some of the dresses, headware and sock monkeys made by students in teacher Christine MacLennan’s room. In the co-op education room, which you could not miss thanks to a line of white arrows on the floor in the main hallway which showed the way, you could see a slide show of some of the co-op placements enjoyed by Banting students this year. You might also learn that there are not only the volunteer co-op placements which students undertake but also paid co-op placements in which the student receives some remuneration and also earns a course credit. One of the unique experiences at the open house was taking part in a taste testing experiment involving, of all things, popcorn. Visitors were asked to rate popcorn from three separate bowls – one made with maple syrup from a sugar maple tree, one made with maple syrup from a Norway maple tree and one with the popcorn made using olive oil and salt. The Frederick Banting Alternate Program is for those students who have experienced difficulty in the normal high school setting and

need the more relaxed and customized setting prevalent at Frederick Banting to flourish in their studies and in their lives. Nearly 400 students from grades 9 through 12 attend Frederick Banting each year. They have a flexible school schedule which allows them to work through their courses, culminating hopefully in graduation and a high school graduation diploma. About 60 students earn their diploma at Frederick Banting each year. This open house and art show was meant to be an opportunity to allow members of the public to visit the Frederick Banting Alternate

Program facility on Stittsville Main Street and see what the program is all about. So, as the motto related to this open house and art show event at the Frederick Banting Alternate Program proclaimed, “Come See What We’re All About!”, it was an opportunity where people could see for themselves the tailored high school experience which this program is offering to secondary school students from the area. The Frederick Banting Alternate Program is located in the former Stittsville Public School facility on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville.

In recent weeks we have seen some malfunctions at the railroad crossings in the Richmond area. The crossings that failed were at McBean Street, Ottawa Street, Eagleson Road and Barnsdale Road. Because of their proximity to one another, if one goes into failsafe mode, they all do. The specific issue that led to the malfunction on May 24th was the failure of an electronic component. This failure occurred at 8:57am and a crew was onsite fixing the problem within the hour. I have been told by VIA that the malfunction in Richmond is, in no way, connected to the recent failures in Barrhaven. Some commitments that VIA has made as a result of recent failures include monthly inspecting and cleaning of contacts in gate mechanism boxes whereas this used to occur once every three months. If you have any concerns on this or any specific questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Councillor for Hire On Monday, May 26th, I took part in what could have been my most labour intensive Councillor for Hire to date working with Hans & Jo Construction. Hans & Jo Construction is a local company, calling Brophy Drive home for 35 years. They specialize in new homes, but also do renovations, additions, carpentry, brush clearing, mini-excavation and more. The day I spent as an employee, we built a deck at a home in Greely. It was a fun day and it was nice to get some hands on experience at deck building while working alongside four other Rideau-Goulbourn residents. I even had the opportunity to explain what a Councillor does to the homeowner, although I imagine she didn’t assume building her deck would be one of those duties.

May 30th, 2014 Goulbourn Recreation Complex Pool Update As many of you are aware the Goulbourn Recreation Complex (GRC) Pool has been closed since August 26th, 2013 when during regular maintenance mould was discovered throughout the ceiling which led to an increased scope of work. The results of the detailed investigations have come to the conclusion that the building envelope surrounding the pool needs to be redesigned. This new design will provide a more durable, simplistic building envelope solution that provides for economical construction suited to the environmental complexities of an indoor pool environment. The total preliminary estimated cost of the new scope of work is $4 million, including construction, professional services, testing, permits and fees. On June 3rd City staff is requesting that the Finance and Economic Committee approve this scope of work and the additional $4 million required to complete the GRC project. I will provide the community with a full update once the report has been passed by Council. The arenas, fitness rooms and community centre space at the complex remain open to the public. Residents are encouraged to use other nearby City pool facilities located in Kanata at the Kanata Leisure Centre at 70 Aird Place, Tel. 613-591-9283 and or the Richcraft Recreation Complex located at 4101 Innovation Drive, Tel. 613-580-9696. In addition to these facilities there is also a private pool that is available in the community, the Amberwood Golf Club, located at 54 Springbrook Drive has an outdoor saltwater pool. The pool is now open to the public seven days a week with a variety of activities available. GMS Dreamcatchersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on a mission team up with Councillor Park Party and BBQ Mark your calendars! My annual Councillorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Park Party and BBQ is happening on Saturday June 14th! Each year my office team and I select a group or individual to benefit from the donations that are received at the BBQ. This year the BBQ is supporting the Goulbourn Middle School (GMS) Dream Catchers. The GMS Dream Catchers are a group of dedicated 13 middle-school students that have come together to change the world. Their mandate is to keep a child from giving up on their dreams. They are currently supporting Tysen Lefebvre and his Mission to a Million, helping Tysen reach his goal of raising enough money to help grant 100 wishes through the Make-A-Wish Foundation. I do hope you and your family will come out and join in on the fun starting at 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the Village Square Park on Abbott Street. Recycle Electronics Drive in support of Make-A-Wish Foundation Tysenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lefevbre Mission to a Million is holding an electronics drive June 7th from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Stittsville Lions Medical Center located at1339 Stittsville Main Street. The recycled electronics drive is in partnership with the Stittsville Lions Club. Proceeds of the weight of electronics donated will be spilt 50/50 between the Lions and Tysenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mission to a Million Campaign. Stittsville Branch of Ottawa Public Library will be closed June 8th and 9th The Stittsville Branch of the Ottawa Public Library will be closed on Sunday, June 8th and Monday, June 9th for painting and will re-open on Tuesday, June 10th. Upcoming Road Closure Huntmar Drive from Palladium Drive (north) to Cyclone Taylor Boulevard will be closed from Monday, June 9th to Monday, September 15th 2014. The contractor, Karson Konstruction will be undertaking the installation of a storm sewer and road construction for realignment. The work is being completed as part of the Tanger Outlet Centre Project. This week at City Hall At the Planning Committee meeting held on May 27th, with the support of City staff, I put forth a motion that was passed and carried at Council on May 28th regarding the unique nature of the utility modification needed in relation to the undergrounding of the hydro circuits required along Founder Avenue (future North/South Arterial) for site-specific technical reasons. Founder Avenue is scheduled to be constructed in accordance with the Environmental Assessment recommendations as a two Phase construction. The first phase is from Fernbank Road to Abbott Street and the second phase is from Abbott Street to Hazeldean Road. Both phases of the Founder Avenue construction will initially be constructed as a two lane roadway until the traffic counts warrant moving to the ultimate build out of 4 traffic lanes and two transit lanes. The burial and justification for including as a utility modification is being recommended as a response to a significant technical challenge that is unique to the specific context of Founder Avenue. The technical challenge is the presence of two major highvoltage transmission power lines in close proximity. This is not a situation that occurs elsewhere in the City to the same degree. The Underground Wiring Policy indicates that in cases where undergrounding is occurring, all incremental costs over an abovegrounding solution should be paid by a third party. In this case, there are significant and compelling technical reasons which dictate why undergrounding is the preferred solution and should be considered part of the road construction cost. Founder Avenue is the central arterial of the Fernbank development area considered under the Fernbank Community Design Plan and approved by Council in September 2010. As a new growth road, this is funded 100% through development charge (DC). The DC allocation for this road is able to accommodate this additional utility modification within the approved funding envelope.

Following the Fun Day, the Stittsville 56ers of the Greater Ottawa Fastball League took to the diamond to play a league game against the Carp 14C Victory squad. The 56ers shut out the visiting Carp 14C Victory team 9-0 in this game, with Dan Konkle earning the win on the mount for the 56ers. Darren Featherstone worked in relief for the 56ers.

3 Ways to Buy a Home for Less Money Ottawa - If you're like most homebuyers, you have two primary considerations in mind when you start looking for a home. First, you want to find the home that perfectly meets your needs and desires, and secondly, you want to purchase this home for the lowest possible price. When you analyze those successful home buyers who have been able to purchase the home they want for thousands of dollars below a seller's asking price, some common denominators emerge. While the negotiating skills of your agent are important, there are three additional key factors that must come into play long before you ever submit an offer. This topic has been the subject of extensive analysis by Industry Experts, and a summary of their findings, and a specific step-by-step purchase plan for homebuyers, can be found in a new special

report called "Homebuyers: How to Save Thousands of Dollars When You Buy". This free report outlines the psychology of how a seller sets their asking price, and gives you 3 simple steps to follow, before you even set foot in a seller's home, which could help you to successfully slash thousands of dollars off the price of the home you want.

News - Imagine, two good deeds arising from one action. But you can both help the environment while also helping a wish be granted to a youngster suffering from a life threatening medical situation by taking part in the free e-waste recycling event happening this Saturday, June 7 in Stittsville. It’s a joint effort with the Stittsville District Lions Club partnering with Tysen Lefebvre and his “Mission To A Million” campaign for Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario. All of the funds raised through the weight of the recycled items dropped off at this e-waste recycling event will be split between the Lions Club and Tysen’s campaign. This e-waste recycling drop-off event will work just like the others which have been held at other venues throughout the community. Just load up in your vehicle any old e-waste such as computer monitors, keyboards, old televisions and the like and drive it to the Lions Hall on Stittsville Main Street anytime between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. this Saturday, June 7. Members of the Lions Club and other volunteers will be there, ready to unload your ewaste and pile it into a bin. Dropping the e-waste off is all free; the funds are raised by the weight of the materials that are recycled. And in this case the funds raised from the weight of these recycled materials will go to

the Stittsville District Lions Club and to Tysen Lefebvre’s “Mission To A Million” campaign for Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario. The Stittsville District Lions Club supports the community through supporting many activities from minor sports through donations to the Stittsville Food Bank and organizations like The War Amps and Hospice Care Ottawa. Tysen Lefebvre, a 13 year old Stittsville youth, has now raised over $80,000 as he works towards his goal of raising one million dollars for Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario/ This would mean that at least 100 children facing medical difficulties in their lives can enjoy seeing a wish come true. Each wish granted by Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario costs roughly $10,000. Tysen himself had his grant to meet actor Adam Sandler granted in 2012 and his experience prompted him to try to ensure that many other youngsters will also have their wishes fulfilled. Hence his “Mission To A Million” campaign. Everyone with some e-waste lying around the house is urged to collect it up and drop it off at this free e-waste recycling drop-off at the Stittsville Lions Hall on Stittsville Main Street this Saturday, June 7 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. You will not only be helping the environment by ensuring that your e-waste is recycled but also you will be helping a wish come true for a youngster through Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario. It doesn’t get any better than this – accomplishing two worthy goals with a single action. R0012635027

Candidates show support for Kemptville College John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

News - The debt. Pensions. Hydro bills. Health care. Catholic schools. These were but some of the topics covered by the 14 questions asked at a Carleton-Mississippi Mills candidates meeting in Stittsville last Friday evening. But there were also some of a more local nature, covering the future of Kemptville College, the possibility of new schools in Stittsville and Kanata and the proposed Energy East pipeline which will run past Stittsville. In response to a question about the future of Kemptville College, Liberal Party candidate Rosalyn Stevens emphasized her farm and 4H background and that many of her friends had attended Kemptville College.

She pledged to fight to keep it open. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know how important Kemptville College is to our community,â&#x20AC;? she said, adding that she would not leave a single stone unturned in fighting to keep it open. Progressive Conservative candidate and incumbent Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP Jack MacLaren called the closing of Kemptville College an â&#x20AC;&#x153;unthinkable thing to doâ&#x20AC;? and said that a PC government would provide the funding to keep Kemptville College open as an agricultural college. New Democratic Party candidate John Hansen voiced similar support, saying that the NDP supports the continuation of Kemptville College. Green Party candidate Andrew West, while admitting that he was not aware of Kemptville College, nonetheless cited his growing up on

a farm in the Owen Sound area and noted that the Green Party wants to protect agriculture. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Farmers feed us,â&#x20AC;? he said. It was Ottawa-Carleton District School Board trustee Lynn Scott who queried the candidates on capital funding for new schools and just how each of them would expedite getting funding for a new public high school in Stittsville and new elementary schools in Stittsville and Kanata. NDP candidate John Hansen wants to fix the process of funding new schools which he called a â&#x20AC;&#x153;lotteryâ&#x20AC;? at present. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to fix the process,â&#x20AC;? he said. Jack MacLaren of the PCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s said that the Tories would get the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial house in order so that there will be the dollars available for building new schools. He acknowl-

edged that there is a need for these new schools in the area. Liberal Party candidate Rosalyn Stevens noted that there are three new school projects approved in Kanata at present and said that if the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board gives priority to the Stittsville school in its capital funding request, then a Liberal government will provide the funds. Green Party candidate Andrew West laid the blame on the fact that the province has two publicity funded school systems, the public and the Catholic, causing $1.2 billion to be wasted on duplication. He said that with only one school system, these funds could be directed back into the school system and new schools. With regard to responding to a question about the proposed Energy East pipeline that will see an exist-

ing natural gas pipeline that runs near Stittsville converted to be an oil pipeline, it was only NDP candidate John Hansen who voiced concerns based on the age of the existing pipeline and the fact that it supplies the area with natural gas at present. He said that he was not in favour of the Energy East pipeline. In reply to an earlier question, PC candidate Jack MacLaren confirmed that he believes that human-caused climate change is a hoax. Responding to a question about the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial situation and its debt, PC candidate Jack MacLaren said that the solution is to get the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial house in order, promising that the Tories would balance the budget in two yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; time. One aspect of this will be to cancel the green energy act which provides what he called unaffordable subsidies to green energy producers. Green Party candidate Andrew West disagreed with this view of the green energy act, placing the blame instead on the cost to refurbish nuclear reactors. He wants to see the money used instead to retrofit homes so that people will use less energy. He also favours acquiring water-generated energy from Quebec. NDP candidate John Hansen spoke against what he called the Toriesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; austerity approach, saying that the Toriesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; plan for the economy will hurt the high tech community in this area. He advocated dropping the tax rate for small companies while maintaining existing tax credit programs. Liberal candidate Rosalyn Stevens said that growing the economy by investing in new businesses and creating jobs is the way to deal with the current debt situation of the province. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to look at growing the economy,â&#x20AC;? she said. Just how the current pension situation should be improved was seen differently by the candidates. NDP candidate John Hansen said that the best way forward is to improve the existing Canada Pension Plan, adding that the NDP does not think that a provincial pension plan is the way to go at present. Jack MacLaren of the PCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s said that defined benefit pension plans are not sustainable and advocated for defined contribution pensions. Andrew West of the Green Party said that the Green Party supports pension reform but added that there is a need for more innovative approaches to solve the problem. Liberal Party candidate Rosalyn Stevens said that the Liberals are the only party in Ontario with a plan for a fully costed pension plan. She said that the Liberals want to make sure that seniors in the future can enjoy retirement security and are able to retire with respect. The candidates were asked how they would solve the problem of high hydro bills that people are receiving. Liberal Party candidate Rosalyn Stevens noted that Ontario is the first jurisdiction in North America to be coal-free with regard to the generation of power. See HYDRO, page 43

Hydro among topics discussed at candidatesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; meeting Continued from page 42

She said that the previous Tory government in the province had left the hydro system in a shambles, requiring investments in the system by the Liberals. She noted that there have been no â&#x20AC;&#x153;brownoutsâ&#x20AC;? in the province recently, unlike previously. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our hydro system is a mess,â&#x20AC;? NDP candidate John Hansen said, blaming it on Ontario premiers who keep what he termed â&#x20AC;&#x153;playingâ&#x20AC;? with the system. He said that the NDP would turn to private industry to come up with the solution to the problem while adding that the NDP will take the HST off hydro bills. Green Party candidate Andrew West proclaimed the partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s support for green energy, advocating that the setback distance for windmills from residential properties should be increased, noting that in other jurisdictions such setbacks are up to 5,000 metres whereas Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s setback distance is only 550 metres. He again advocated for the Green Partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan to introduce a program so that homes could be retrofitted to be more energy efficient. He said that this would not only create jobs but would save people money. PC candidate Jack MacLaren reiterated that the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Green Energy Act is something that the province just â&#x20AC;&#x153;cannot afford.â&#x20AC;? He said that nuclear power plants are cheap producers of hydro once they are constructed. Health care spending and long waiting periods were the focus of another question. PC candidate Jack MacLaren said

Voting News - Advance poll locations for the June 12th provincial election opened Sunday, June 1 and will continue to this Friday, June 6. The polls will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. There will be several locations throughout the Carleton-Mississippi Mills riding including the returning office at 340 Leggett Dr. in Kanata, Voters with mobility problems can request an election official visit to let them vote at home. The special ballot option is one of several initiatives to ensure everyone can vote. In that vein, special ballot voting continues at the riding returning office until Wednesday, June 11 at 6 p.m.

that a Tory government would make better use of health care dollars, partly by getting ride of the Local Health Integration Networks (LHINâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) and the Community Care Access Centres (CCACâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) with the savings going to having more front line personnel instead. He advocated for a focus on home care, calling it the happiest and cheapest place for a person to be, while also supporting the creation of more long term care beds. He wants to streamline the health care system so that it is â&#x20AC;&#x153;better and quicker.â&#x20AC;? Green Party candidate Andrew West said that the Green Party supports better care for seniors and having more long term care available but added that the Green Party wants to look at prevention in health care as a first step. NDP candidate John Hansen noted that it was the NDP which introduced socialized medicine to Canada and promised that the NDP in Ontario will improve the system by cutting emergency room wait times, by opening 24 hour clinics staffed by doctors and nurses and guaranteeing five days of support at home for anyone who has been released from hospital. Liberal Party candidate Rosalyn Stevens showed support for more health care hubs in communities and voiced a commitment that all Ontario residents should have access to a private health care provider. She supports the LHINâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, saying that they ensure that decision making on health care matters happen at the local level rather than by the bureau-

cracy in Toronto. The candidates were asked for their positions on the abolition of Catholic school boards in the province. Liberal Party candidate Rosalyn Stevens noted that the current school system is working well, adding that any abolition of Catholic schools is a constitutional issue. NDP candidate John Hansen also referenced the constitutional issue, saying that the current situation is â&#x20AC;&#x153;the way it isâ&#x20AC;? and is probably the way that it will be for a long time. Jack MacLaren of the PC Party said that his party has no plans to change the current situation with public and Catholic school boards. It was only Green Party candidate Andrew West who voiced a differing

opinion, claiming that the province had the power to amend the constitution in this regard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can do it,â&#x20AC;? he said, noting that the Green Party is the only party in the provincial election which is talking about this issue. In her wrap up at the conclusion of the meeting, Liberal Party candidate Rosalyn Stevens promised to listen to and serve residents in all parts of the riding. NDP candidate John Hansen said that the real choice in the June 12 election is between the Conservatives and the NDP, saying that the choice has never been â&#x20AC;&#x153;so stark.â&#x20AC;? Jack MacLaren of the PC Party said that job creation will create the wealth in the province that will allow the government to help people.

Andrew West of the Green Party predicted that one day the Green Party will form a government in Canada. He said that by voting now for the Green Party, a voter is saying that he or she believes in the Green Partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s principles and it will help make the reality of a Green Party government happen sooner. Former Goulbourn township councillor and former Stittsville Village Association president Louise Beggs served as the moderator for this candidates meeting which attracted about 80 people to the Stittsville United Church on Fernbank Road just west of Stittsville Main Street which was the site of the meeting. The candidates meeting was organized by the Stittsville Village Association.

News - The Stittsville Food Bank has a new logo. The new logo was the result of a recent contest conducted by the Food Bank involving youth from the community. The top three winning entries in the logo contest were unveiled and their creators honoured at the Food Bank’s second annual Volunteer and Donor Appreciation Evening on Monday, May 26 at the Bistro 54 Restaurant at Amberwood. It was the logo design submitted by Sophie Brown-Graham, a student at Holy Spirit Catholic School in Stittsville, which was the winning entry in the logo contest. The first runner-up in the contest was Kate Calhoun, a student at A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary School in Stittsville. The logo design which was the second runner-up in the contest was that submitted by Jacob Tysick, a student at A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary School in Stittsville. City of Ottawa mayor Jim Watson and city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri were on hand to formally present certificates of appreciation to the three winners in the logo contest. In her remarks at the Appreciation Evening, Stittsville Food Bank chair Theresa Qadri noted that 2013 saw some changes at the Food Bank. While the Food Bank served 92 families at Christmas time, this year a delivery service was implemented to make the situation easier for the recipients. There was some question about how long it would take to make 92 deliveries, with some estimates of two days or more. But thanks to the efforts and energy of the Food Bank volunteers, all of the deliveries were completed by 3 p.m. on the very first delivery day.

Besides implementing the deliveries at Christmas, the Food Bank also came up with the idea of decorating the boxes in which the Christmas hampers were delivered. Youngsters brought in boxes decorated for Christmas. Stittsville Sobeys opened up a back room at the store for a Christmas wrapping night for the boxes. Guide Guides wrapped up boxes, leaving messages on the boxes for the recipients. Food Bank chair Theresa Qadri pointed out the consistent work of volunteers, from heavy lifting to mopping floors to taking out the garbage. She compared it to working in a grocery store where there is always lots of work to do. She explained that sorting out the different food items and making note of expiry dates on the items are important for the Food Bank. She praised Scout leaders like Kevin Chappell and Mike Ledder who are involved in organizing two food drives each year, one in the spring and one in the fall, with both the Scouting and Guiding organizations taking part. She also praised the community’s churches, schools and many residents who donate food to the Food Bank to help keep the shelves from going bare. Food Bank Chair Ms. Qadri noted the efforts of the Goulbourn Male Chorus and its director Robert Dueck for donating funds to the Food Bank. Such donations help the Food Bank in buying fresh produce, dairy and meat, she noted. She noted as well that this year the Food Bank received $2,000 in Toys ‘R Us gift cards for distribution at Christmas time in 2013. The Food Bank also received another $2,000 donation for the purchase of clothes and food for some of the group homes that the Stittsville Food Bank helps out.

Do you have football fever? The Bell Warriors want you! Special to the News

Sports - Have you got RedBlacks fever? Those aged 8 to 16 who would like playing tackle football just like the RedBlacks should make note that the Bell Warriors Football Club is holding tackle football tryouts for youth living in the communities of Richmond, Stittsville and Munster as well as Bells Corners, Bayshore, Britannia and Crystal Beach. Youth aged 8 to 16 years are welcome to tryout for the upcoming season. All of the football equipment is supplied by the Bell Warriors so playing tackle football is extremely affordable. Who knows – you might end up playing eventually for the Ottawa RedBlacks of the Canadian Football League(CFL), just like Justin Phillips, a Sacred Heart Catholic High School graduate who played for the Bell Warriors and went on to play for the Calgary Stampeders of the CFL and is now suiting up this season with the Ottawa RedBlacks. And lots of Stittsville and Richmond youth do suit up for

the Bell Warriors. Andrew Howatt of Stittsville was the outstanding offensive player for the Bell Warriors tyke team last season. Black Adam of Stittsville was the most improved player on the mosquito team while Kyle Crabtree of Stittsville was chosen as the most outstanding offensive player on the mosquito team. James Keenan of Stittsville was the most outstanding offensive player on the Warriors’ pee wee team last season while Kurtis Schaefer of Stittsville won the Coaches Choice Award at the bantam level last season.

Underground hydro wires going along Founders Ave. Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - A technical issue means a new road in Stittsville will break city rules and get underground hydro wires. Despite a new policy passed in 2011 that says the city won’t bury hydro lines unless it’s fully paid for by the developer, businesses or residents that request it, the hydro lines along a new road being built in Stittsville will be underground. The two-lane road, Founders Avenue, will be constructed through undeveloped land between Fernbank Road to Hazeldean Road in two phases. The problem is that the area already has two hydro-line corridors traversing the area, which could create electrical interference if another set of hydro lines are added along the road. The only solution, said Stittsville Coun. Shad Qadri, is to use $1.46 million the city will collect in development charges for future construction in the area to pay for underground installation of the new wires. “It’s because of a technical issue,” Qadri said. “There are a couple hydro corridors in close proximity and in order to put a third one in would be really, really impossible from a technical perspective.” The area already has a high-voltage Hydro One line running through the area, as well as an Ottawa Hydro corridor. Other solutions investigated the possibility

of excavating the roadway to lower the road by 2.7 metres, or raising the height of the Hydro One lines. According to a memo from city staff, both those options would have created “unacceptable conflicts” with development plans for the area and would have resulted in a “multitude of technical issues making it almost impossible to support development in an efficient and effective manner.” The underground option is also $366,125 cheaper than making the existing hydro towers taller, according to the memo. On May 27 the city’s planning committee approved the exception to allow development charges to be used to pay for the work. The construction of the future Founders Avenue has already begun, so council had make an exception to pass the committee’s recommendation the next day in order to avoid construction delays and increased costs, Qadri said. Phase 1 of the road between Fernbank and Abbott is expected to be done late next year. Phase 2, from Abbottsford to Hazeldean, is expected to be built in the next two to three years. A third phase connecting Founders Avenue from Hazeldean Road to Palladium Drive would be completed later – likely before 2025, according to the city’s transportation master plan. The entire road will paid for using development charges, since it is a new road and the charges are used to pay for the costs associated with the city’s growth. The road will eventually be widened to four lanes for vehicle traffic and two transit lanes.

“Chaudière Falls is in the heart of Canada’s National Capital and has great historical significance,” said Bryce Conrad, President and CEO of Hydro Ottawa. “It fueled the industrial explosion of the mid 1800s by providing the water power for the vast complex of lumber mills that generated electricity that drove railroads and factories in the area after 1885.” Hydro Ottawa owns and operates six run-of-the-river hydroelectric facilities, located along the Ottawa River adjacent to Chaudière Falls, the birth place of Ottawa’s rich logging history. Less than 1.5 kilometres away from Parliament Hill in Ottawa’s downtown core, these facilities produce more than 270,000 megawatt hours of power each year, making Hydro Ottawa the largest municipallyowned producer of green power in eastern Ontario. Generating Station No. 2, commissioned by E.H. Bronson in 1891 during the lumber boom, is a heritagedesignated building and Canada’s oldest surviving hydroelectric facility still in operation. During the two-day event, visitors will get the chance to explore the historicallysignificant facility between 10 am to 4 pm, learn about electricity safety and conservation from on-site experts, and inspect the company’s electric-powered Chevy Volt. There will be an on-site BBQ and bucket truck rides in support of Hydro Ottawa’s United Way campaign.

City planner admits that zoning process does not deal with some landfill concerns Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

R0012735798

News – The city of Ottawa held a meeting last week in Carp that showed, going forward, how little power it has over the new landfill on Carp Road. Waste Management plans to create a second site next to the existing, now closed landfill on the site at Carp Road and Highway 417. It has received the provincial government’s blessing but requires a zoning change approval from the city. City planner Cheryl McWilliams told the dozen or so who attended the meeting on Wednesday, May 28 at the Carp Agricultural Hall that the city has a say on a few requirements: exterior visuals such as landscaping (including tree species), berms, fencing, and the like; the location and size of parking lots and internal roads; buffer zone sizes; on-site water treatment for workers; and building height. “So it gets down to a fair bit of detail as to the peripheral things,” McWilliams said. “The zoning process doesn’t get into some of the concerns raised.” A few fears raised included: Groundwater contamination if landfill leachate seeps into the fractured limestone below: increased traffic on the already-congested area roads; odour similar to levels that forced the province to reprimand Waste Management about six years ago; a drop in property values due to having a nearby landfill; the catchment area is not limited to Ottawa and area, but could see trash come in from other parts of Ontario; a working landfill situated among the three fast-

growing communities of Kanata, Stittsville and Carp. The four west Ottawa councillors at the meeting explained that there is an advisory committee made up of city and company officials, along with community stakeholders. The committee will negotiate agreements on the contentious issues. The committee has no legal power; Waste Management can accept or reject recommendations. The company has publicly stated it wants to satisfy area residents. Residents at the meeting doubted there is enough time for negotiations, and accused Waste Management of accelerating the process to silence critics. The 120-day comment period ends in early July, when city council votes on the plan. Company officials were at the meeting but declined comment. West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry recounted city efforts to block the expansion, including the mayor’s letter to the environment minister, the 18 council-backed demands, the 20 public meetings and many residents’ submissions, and the rise of opposition citizen groups. “Then we found out in the media that it was approved,” he said. Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson warned against taking the company to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB). Any gains made at the committee level would be lost at the OMB, she said. No one representing the province was on hand. Carleton-Mississippi Mills NDP candidate John Hansen attended the meeting.

News – Jennifer Ferrante is determined. The 34 year old Richmond resident is heading to Toronto this week to take part in the C17 Great Big Head Shave. C17 refers to the 17 children’s hospitals and cancer treatment centres across Canada. The money raised from the event will go to childhood cancer research. But while shaving her head may take some courage, the mother of six-month old twins will be the first to tell you that what she’s doing is nothing compared to what children with cancer and their families go through. At the C17 Great Big Head Shave, Jennifer will be a “shavee” on the Phoebe Rose Rocks team. “I just want to do what I can to help,” she says. “Shaving my head is one small thing I can do to help support this life saving research that is giving hop to Phoebe, her family and so many like her.” Phoebe Rose Doull-Hoffman is a three year old girl from Ottawa who was diagnosed with high risk infantile leukemia when she was only nine weeks

old. Because her cancer had spread to her spinal fluid and central nervous system, Phoebe had to receive aggressive chemotherapy and radiation treatments as well as multiple blood transfusions and two bone marrow transplants. Now, almost four years after the initial diagnosis, Phoebe’s fight is far from over. “Infant leukemia is a monster,” writes Phoebe’s mother Jenny Doull-Hoffman on a blog that she started in 2011 to document her daughter’s journey. “When diagnosed within the first few months of life, it carries, at best, a 30 percent chance of survival. We were told 10-15 percent,” the blog reads. According to Childhood Cancer Canada, there are currently about 10,000 children living with cancer in Canada, with 1,500 cases being diagnosed annually. Leukemia is the most common cancer found in children, comprising 30 percent of new cases each year. Phoebe’s cancer, namely acute lymphoblastic leukemia, is the most common form of leukemia and it carries a 30 percent chance of relapse. For Phoebe and her family, this has meant that every time there’s a glimpse of hope that the cancer is gone, it comes

back. “There is no known cure for post transplant relapsed infant leukemia and very few survivors,” Phoebe’s mother writes in her blog. “There have been zero advances in treatment or survival rates for this disease in 15 years.” In Canada, childhood cancer is responsible for more deaths in children aged one to adolescence than any other disease. Tumours in children also manifest themselves very differently than in adults. They are often more aggressive, growing more quickly and spreading to other parts of the body faster. Yet, despite this, childhood cancer research receives only three percent of cancer research dollars. “We are simply grasping at straws,” writes Ms. Doull-Hoffman in her blog. “I hope that a cause and a cure is found, that the number of children diagnosed with cancer each year begins to decrease and that more funds are directed to life saving pediatric and infant cancer research.” In the meantime, she finds inspiration in her daughter’s strength. “She has gone through all of this…with a smile on her face and a little bop of her head,” she

writes. “She truly is amazing.” That same strength is what is inspiring Jennifer Ferrante to have her head shaved at C17 Great Big Head Shave. She hopes that her newly shaved head will bring more attention to children’s cancers. “It’s another way for me to tell people why I did this and give them the information so they can do what they can,” she says. “I have healthy kids and I’m healthy and it just makes you realize for someone like Phoebe and her family, they don’t have time. They need to work to find a cure now.” The C17 Great Big Head Shave is taking place at the Peter Gilgan Centre for Research and Learning in Toronto this week. The fundraising goal is $170,000. At this first annual event, pediatric oncologists and health professionals from all pediatric oncology treatment centres across Canada will be having their heads shaved in solidarity with the brave children that they meet each day in their work. This is part of a worldwide campaign and initiative by the St. Baldrick’s Foundation in partnership with other organizations such as Childhood Cancer Canada to fight against childhood cancer.

Doors Open Ottawa commemorates First World War By Jenna Guilbeault

As a way to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the First World War, Doors Open Ontario has chosen WW1 as the theme for the 2014 Ontario-wide Doors Open event season. Doors Open Ottawa, which takes place June 7 and 8, is proud to feature several buildings that tell a story regarding this important time in Canadian history. The Carleton Masonic Lodge, located at 3704 Carp Road in Stittsville, was originally built as a Presbyterian church in 1904. The great fire in 1920 damaged much of the interior of the building. When the church was restored, it became the village of Carp’s Masonic Lodge in 1925. The lodge is characterized by its original stained glass windows and beautiful oak furniture, which was used by Le Havre, a military Masonic lodge located in France and opened by the Allied Forces during WWI. Constructed in 1879, the Cartier Square Drill Hall is a military training facility nestled between the Rideau Canal and neighbouring Ottawa City Hall, which occupies land that was once an open field used for military exercises. The Cartier Square Drill Hall has been a landmark in the heart of Ottawa for over a century. Its Officers’ Mess was the scene of Sir Sam Hughes’ (Minister of Militia and Defence at the time) declaration of war by Canada in 1914, commencing our participation in the Great War. “Given that it has been at the centre of military mobilization and training, and used by a wide variety of civic organizations as part of their activities, we felt it should be shared with the Ottawa public,” says Major Gregory Ptolemy of the Cameron Highlanders of Ottawa (Duke of Edinburgh’s Own). During the summer months, it is from here that the Ceremonial Guard departs to perform

the Changing of the Guard ceremony on Parliament Hill. It is also home to the Cameron Highlanders of Ottawa (Duke of Edinburgh’s Own) and Governor General’s Foot Guards, reserve infantry units trained to augment the Regular Army during times of war and peace. The financial services of Diane A. Gagne operate from a Queen Anne Revival style home built in 1905 in Sandy Hill. It had previously been used as the Italian Embassy, the national headquarters of the Victorian Order of Nurses, and was once the family home to WWI aviator Billy Bishop. Bishop, born in 1894, was decorated as Canada’s top flying ace after being credited with 72 victories. This house features a spacious foyer, beautiful woodwork and mouldings, and eight fireplaces. Exterior details include a steep, cross-gambrel roof, decorative brickwork, classically inspired porches and use of slate, stone and corbelled chimneys. Pinhey’s Point Historic Site, located on Pinhey’s Point Road in Dunrobin, depicts upper- and middle-class rural life in the 19th century. In honor of the 100th commemoration of WWI, Pinhey’s Point will be featuring an exhibit highlighting the journey of Charles Pinhey and his fellow soldiers of the 38th Ottawa Battalion from Bermuda to the Somme. Margot Reid, a member of the museum committee, added, “Charlie and his battalion’s service in Bermuda and France are explored in this exhibit through his letters home, photographs, documents and personal artefacts”.

Notice of Passage of Heritage Designation By-laws The Council of the City of Ottawa, on the April 23, 2014, passed the following by-laws: By-law 2014-141 designating the Bethany Hope Centre, 1140 Wellington Street West, as a property of cultural heritage value or interest under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act.

Jennifer Ferrante of Richmond, who is the mother of six-month old twins, is going to be a “shavee” for the Phoebe Rose Rocks team at the C17 Great Big Head Shave in Toronto this week.

News – Jack MacLaren won the last election by about 9,000 votes, but that hasn’t stopped him from knocking on as many doors in the CarletonMississippi Mills as possible. “There’s still more people out there to bother,” he said with a chuckle. “We’re not taking any of them for granted.” Currently the incumbent Progressive Conservative MPP in the riding, MacLaren hails from MacLaren’s Landing on the Ottawa River in West Carleton where his family has held deed since 1826. A gentleman farmer with one and a half employees, 550 acres of corn and soya along with beef cattle, he is also well educated. He has a degree in civil engineering from Queen’s University. MacLaren has a strong interest in private property rights as past president of the Ontario Landowners Association. He won the PC nomination in a controversial race against the then-incumbent MPP Norm Sterling and went on to win in the 2011 election with 50 per cent of the vote. He cites his experiences at

Queen’s Park and as head of a provincial rural rights organization as reason for qualifying him to represent the riding. Having travelled around the province meeting with folks from all walks of life and business people at all levels, he feels confident in understanding the problems they face. A husband and father to three nurses, he is opposition critic holding three portfolios: democratic and senate reform, infrastructure, and transportation. He is a standing commit-

tee member on justice policy. 27 days before the election was called. He doesn’t believe MacLaren maintains gov- those who called it an investment. ernment often does a poor “An investment? It was an investment in getting themjob of serving its residents selves re-elected,” MacLaren said. and too often is interfering in BOOK areas it shouldn’t be involved NOW! in.

The solution is for government to control cost it is responsible for: reduce tax on electricity, properties, and more. “Seniors on fixed incomes, lower middle class people, these are the ones that could be taxed out of their homes; that are being taxed out of their homes.” Asked which aspects of his party’s platform will be most important to voters in the riding, MacLaren pointed to the tackling of “wasteful spending” and rising public debt and deficit.

Tuesday, June 17, 2014 Holy Spirit Catholic School - 1383 Stittsville Main Street 6:30 to 9 p.m. Transit Access: Route #96 The City of Ottawa is undertaking the Carp Road Widening Environmental Assessment (EA) Study to determine the most appropriate means to accommodate increasing transportation infrastructure requirements in the northwest Stittsville area of the city. The City’s Transportation Master Plan (TMP 2013) identifies the need for the widening of Carp Road from two lanes to four lanes between Highway 417 and Hazeldean Road as a Phase 2 project to be completed between 2020 and 2025. Consultation At the second public open house held in February 2014, the Study Team presented a Preliminary Preferred Design for Carp Road that included roundabout intersections, a narrow raised median and, a multi-use pathway on both sides of the corridor. Having regard for public input, the Study Team has re-evaluated the alternatives, placing a greater emphasis on providing for adjacent site access and on minimizing property requirements. This third Open House will provide an overview of the study progress to-date, including a Recommended Plan for the corridor. This Recommended Plan now includes traffic signals at major intersections, two-way left-turn lane in some sectors, intermittent medians, and a multi-use pathway along both sides of the corridor. Your participation in Open House meetings is important where you can discuss the project with the study team and provide feedback. The EA Study is being undertaken in accordance with Ontario’s EA Act, fulfilling requirements as a Municipal Class EA process for a Schedule ‘C’ project. The EA process involves developing, assessing, and evaluating alternatives, which result in a Recommended Plan that will be presented to City Council for approval. Further information on the Carp Road Widening EA Study is available at ottawa.ca/carproad Interested persons can provide comments throughout the EA process. Any comments received will be collected under the EA Act and, with the exception of personal information, will become part of the public record. Accessibility is an important consideration for the City of Ottawa. If you require special accommodation, please e-mail the project lead below before the event.

Now retired, Hansen said his experience in high tech taught him that collaboration and learning from others is crucial to arriving at the best solution. This also means transparency in the political process. He cited the light rail train (LRT) project as typical. It will cost billions of dollars, yet not reach Kanata until 2048, he says. Yet sitting MPP Jack MacLaren appears to have little interest in or knowledge of the plan, Hansen indicated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would drill down on those numbers. Why is it not coming here?â&#x20AC;? he said. Hansen doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fit the stereotypical model of a New Democrat. He claims to not know what a socialist is â&#x20AC;&#x201C; other than people should be able to get to work without pay-

ing a toll, kids should have good schools, internet services should be reasonably priced, and affordable utilities like water and electricity should be kept in public hands. But he admits government is not always the answer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Look at the Presto Card; that is what high tech should doâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and that private sector jobs should be priority number one. An engineer, Mr. Hansen moved to Kanata 35 years ago. He is quick to talk about challenges facing his community, even down to not enough bus stops on Terry Fox Drive south of Hazeldean Road. He has worked for Nortel and Intel as well as has founded several start-up companies.

CHEO celebrates turning 40 with Doors Open Ottawa By Jenna Guilbeault

This year, the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital of Eastern Ontario will be celebrating its 40th year of service to children and youth, and what better way to celebrate than to open its doors to the public during the Doors Open Ottawa event June 7 and 8. CHEO is a world-renowned and cutting-edge pediatric care facility that specializes in research and training and is one of the few independent pediatric hospitals in Canada. CHEO is located at 401 Smyth Road in Ottawa, but they extend their services to communities in Eastern Ontario, Western Quebec, Nunavut and parts of Northern Ontario through their numerous partnerships with organizations such as Ronald McDonald House, Rogerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s House, Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Miracle Network and Compassionate Friends of Canada. CHEO is a teaching hospital that also offers medical support to other doctors in Ottawa institutions and this, in turn, strengthens the quality of care that is offered to children and youth. Each year, CHEO provides more than 6,000 admissions, 7,000 surgeries and 170,000 clinic visits. It houses one of the busiest pediatric emergency rooms in Canada, treating more than 65,000 children and youth a year. CHEO offers

a wide range of specialized programs for youth that focus on disorders such as early language developmental disabilities and autism. CHEOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year by opening its doors during Doors Open Ottawa. You can join a guided tour and get a unique behind-the-scenes look at the hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cutting-edge research facilities, surgical suites and the simulation lab. Eva Schacherl, from the communications department at CHEO, says that there will be lot of interesting things for kids and adults to see. There will be child-friendly activities, and parents can experience the human library, where they can sit down one-on-one to talk with a heart surgeon or a brain surgeon, for example. Schacherl says there is a superhero theme within the hospital and she hopes that those who visit CHEO will support that theme â&#x20AC;&#x201C; dressing up as superheroes encouraged! Doors Open Ottawa takes place this year during the ďŹ rst full weekend in June. It celebrates the historically and architecturally signiďŹ cant buildings in the Ottawa area by opening their doors, free of admission, for the public to see. 2014-02-8023-23320_5_en

Andrew West running for Green Party Adam Kveton adam.kveton@metroland. com

News - Green Party candidate Andrew West says his party is a great fit for the CarletonMississippi Mills riding, with its fiscal conservatism and strong stance on protecting the environment. With a rural agricultural sector as well as an urban centre, â&#x20AC;&#x153;a lot of our plan makes perfect sense (for the riding),â&#x20AC;? said West. The 39-year-old University of Ottawa law student is making his first run at the ballot, bringing along experience in university politics and volunteer expereince with various political party campaigns. West does not live in the riding, but grew up in similar circumstances in the Bruce-GreyOwen Sound riding, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People do like fiscal responsibility, but a lot of the community is rural, and there is a lot of agriculture,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Green Party is

Andrew West strong on many fronts to do with food and water and agriculture in general.â&#x20AC;? Protecting the Greenbelt and working to conserve the Beaver Pond area in Kanata are a few of his priorities, he said, while focusing on some of the major issues for residents, like transportation, education and jobs. West said the Green Party would support Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s light rail transit project, and would set aside $3 billion to fund transit in Ontario. He commented that the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most affordable plan, one that would

have the Confederation line stop well short of Kanata, is not good enough, and that the number of local bus routes have to increase. If elected, the Green Party would look to reallocate taxes rather than increase them, he said. That would include closing HST loopholes and doubling the employer health-care tax exemption from $450,000 to $900,000 for businesses with payrolls less than $5 million. The partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest money saver would be amalgamating the public and Catholic school boards. This would save $1.2 to $1.6 billion a year, he said. As for the partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stance on energy creation, West highlighted a home retrofit grant of $4 million over four years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Green Party is all about conservation. So rather than adding new generators and new nuclear plants ... we would rather see money put towards home retrofits to conserve energy,â&#x20AC;? said West.

Liberal candidate Rosalyn Stevens Adam Kveton Adam.kveton@metroland. com

News - The Liberal candidate for Carleton-Mississippi Mills, Rosalyn Stevens, says at the heart of the upcoming election is a choice between the Conservatives’ plan to “cut, slash and burn,” or the Liberals’ “smart investments.” Stevens signalled that choice as the major issue this election, but added that close to her heart is early childhood education and child care. Stevens, who is 28-years old, is a native of rural Almonte and has lived elsewhere in the riding. She currently lives in Nepean to be closer to

Carleton University where she is studying political science. This is her first time on a ballot. Stevens said she represents a good balance of the rural and urban interests of the riding, something she said is currently missing.

Rosalyn Stevens

“This area has been u n d e r- r e p r e s e n t e d and Jack (MacLaren, Conservative incumbent) is not a teamplayer,” she said. “He picks and chooses parts of the riding that he wants to represent, and that’s just not the way to do the job.” Job creation and transportation are two of the largest issues in the riding, she said. Stevens cited the Liberal’s funding support for various businesses, as well as the $220 million pledged to high-tech giant Cisco over the next 10 years to provide 1,700 jobs, as an example of the Liberal’s job creation strategy. Stevens contended that most of those 1,700 jobs would be coming to the Car-

leton-Mississippi Mills riding. “We need to make sure that we are investing in business to make sure that those jobs are being created,” she said. The Liberals are committed to supporting Ottawa’s light rail transit plan, said Stevens, with $14 billion in the proposed budget for transportation outside of Toronto and Hamilton. Early childhood education and childcare supports are important issues for Stevens, she said. As for how to support those kinds of initiatives, Stevens said, “I can promise you right now that it’s something very close to my heart and something that I will look into.”

He also took the battered hymn book with MARY COOK Emerson wants him. He would have loved to take the bible which sat in the parlour on the twig table, but drew the line on that! No bible left the proper burial Mother house to bury a dead bird. Emerson led us solemnly out of the house, for animals Mary Cook’s Memories down the back steps and across the front yard Ronny said he would be glad to help with the service. Emerson said that wouldn’t be necessary, he had the service down pat. Knowing Ronny, he had other plans. Well, Mother wasn’t letting any of us away from the house until the kitchen had been redded up, and that included Emerson pitching in. We all had our special chores, and nothing interfered with Mother’s routine, dead bird, or no dead bird. Ronny was to take the table scraps out to the back stoop for our old Collie dog Sport, who, like the rest of us, was well aware of our mealtime routine, and was already sitting on the bottom step waiting for whatever morsel was coming his way. As Ronny was heading out the door, Emerson hollered, “We’ll meet at the silo in five minutes.” Finally the red and white oilcloth covered table was wiped clean, the dishes washed, dried and put away, and the floor swept. We all headed for the back door. Audrey couldn’t be coaxed out of the kitchen. “Nonsense...just plain nonsense,” she could be heard muttering. Everything could have been happening in another country as far as Mother was concerned. As long as our chores were done to her liking, she was happy! Emerson always wore his cap at these ceremonies. I thought that strange since you wouldn’t dare wear a cap in church, and this was supposed to be as close to a church service as you could get without actually going to church.

towards the silo behind the barn. Little Terry had no idea where he was going, but he sensed excitement in the air, and holding my hand tightly, he skipped along as if we were going to a party. Ronny was already at the site. And it didn’t take a university graduate to figure out what he had done. There was a soft mound of dirt, and a stick at one end of it, and there stood Ronny standing in solemn wonder with his hands folded in steeple position and his eyes closed.

Lifestyle - Emerson was having no part of it! Ronny and Terry had come from Montreal for their usual long summer holidays, and Ronny, just as aggressive as Emerson, insisted he was quite capable of playing a leading role in burying the dead bird. Emerson was high on burying anything that had died on the farm, and having what he called a proper funeral. He drew the line on the long list of farm animals that ended up in our smoke house and on the old pine table at meal time. Thank goodness, or we would be having a funeral service every few days! What he called a proper send-off was saved for birds, squirrels, or anything else that roamed the large acreage that was our farm at Northcote and which had passed on for one reason or another. He was known to drag a dead groundhog a half mile to give it a proper service. Now, the service usually included us five children standing, (although my sister Audrey, the oldest was getting less and less enamoured with the whole idea) around in solemn wonder as Emerson said a few words, put the deceased in a shallow hole, covered it up, stuck a twig in the mound, and then we were supposed to stand and meditate for at least a full three minutes, which Emerson measured off by counting backwards. That Saturday the dead bird was discovered in the barn yard, and Emerson didn’t take long to announce that we should all gather behind the silo as soon as we finished our breakfast.

Ronny had buried the bird. Well, Emerson lost all sense of piety, lunged at Ronny, dropped the hymn book, and was about to tear into him when Everett and Earl got a good hold of him and held him back. Ronny had the good sense to head for the house where he knew Mother would never let Emerson lay a hand on him. The rest of us stood around the little mound. I have no idea when he did it, but Ronny had taken a scrap of paper, woven it through the twig at the head of the make-shift grave, and printed in black red crayon, “Goodbye Bird.” Interested in an electronic version of Mary’s books?

South Carleton High School student Devon Blomquist, right, stands with some of the healthy eating posters which the Digital Photography, Media and Imaging class has created. Student Rachel Glennie was also instrumental in producing the posters. The breakfast club is only the first of several initiatives to encourage healthy eating and active living. A foods and nutrition program is being added this fall, assisted by the installation of a full kitchen â&#x20AC;&#x153;labâ&#x20AC;? with five cooking stations. The Ottawa-Carleton District School Board is providing the funds for this kitchen installation which is expected to be ready to go in September. Co-op placements in the hospitality industry are popular with students but currently South Carleton has nothing to support students in this regard. With this new foods and nutrition curriculum course plus the new full kitchen â&#x20AC;&#x153;lab,â&#x20AC;? South Carleton will now be better able to support those students who might want to pursue a career in the hospitality industry. The school has recently received a $20,000 grant from the provincial Ministry of Education which will allow the school to purchase new equipment for

the personal fitness program which it offers. On top of this, a nutrition awareness campaign is going to happen beginning in the fall, focused on healthy eating. Students in the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Specialist High Schools Major course dealing with Digital Photography, Media and Imaging is developing a series of posters about healthy eating which will be put up around the school. Principal Anderson says that it is felt that there is a need to inform students a little more about the links between nutrition and education and also fitness and education. Principal Anderson points out that South Carleton already has an outdoor education program, a dance program and a personal fitness program for students but that the school wants to build on this fitness focus and add an awareness component to it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all based on the belief that enhanced fitness will lead to better learning and that healthier

eating will do likewise. Principal Anderson admits that it may take some time but that it is hoped that this healthy eating and active living initiative will eventually lead to benefits in student academic achievement. Developing in students an awareness of proper eating and regular exercise is key in all of this. This fits in with an overall focus on student well being at South Carleton, whether it be bullying or mental health or now better nutrition and active living. By creating an awareness of better nutrition and active living among students, this will lead to students pursuing different food choices and a healthier lifestyle. These in turn will lead to enhanced student achievement. We want to see our students thinking about their nutrition and its impact on their learning and their health, principal Anderson says.

News - Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s simple. If a student is eating better and is more physically active, then the learning will be better. Research shows this and now South Carleton High School in Richmond is taking steps to ensure this. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all being done to help South Carleton students become more successful academically, says principal Colin Anderson, noting that if students are provided with the right fuel for their brain and the right activity levels for their body, the result will be that they will be more successful in school. In addition, he points out, healthy eating and proper activity are lifelong skills that students can carry with them through life. South Carleton launched this healthy eating and active living initiative this school year by adding a breakfast club which provides free breakfast to any student who arrives at school without having eaten breakfast. This breakfast club is possible thanks to the support of Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Your Independent Grocer in Richmond and Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Your Independent Grocer in Stittsville which provide items such as chocolate milk, juice and fresh fruit. In the winter, a bowl of oatmeal proved to be popular. Any student who arrives at school without breakfast is able to grab something at this breakfast club. Anywhere from 30 to 50 students each day use this breakfast club. Principal Anderson says that the numbers are probably more linked to the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s early start time than other factors but whatever the reason, the breakfast club is there to make sure that before a student starts a day of learning, the student has some food â&#x20AC;&#x153;fuelâ&#x20AC;? for the brain. He wants students to have something in their stomach at the beginning of the school day so that they can learn better.

Rugby season over for Huskies Special to the News

Sports - The season is over for the Sacred Heart High School Huskies girls rugby team. The Huskies lost 42-0 to Ashbury College in semi-final playoff action, ending their season. The Huskies had finished the regular season with a record of one win and four losses. Ashbury College had a season record of four wins and only one loss. In the regular season, the Huskies had lost to Merivale High School, Holy Trinity High School, St. Peter High School and Ashbury College. The Huskies did defeat Glebe Collegiate 22-15 in their last game of the regular season. JOHN CURRY/METROLAND

Junior football jamboree at South Carleton Special to the News

Sports - Football took over the rear field at South Carleton High School in Richmond last Friday afternoon. No, it wasn’t a visit by the Ottawa RedBlacks. Rather, it was a junior football jamboree hosted by South Carleton. Junior teams from five high schools participated in the jamboree. These included Garneau High School, Mother Teresa High School, Holy Trinity High School, Fellows High School and the host SCHS squad. A jamboree like this does not feature games but rather controlled scrimmages featuring the offensive and defensive squads of each high school. An offense would go against a defense for ten plays, using half of the field, and then the teams would switch, with the offense of the formerly defensive team going against the defense of the other team for ten plays.

Each high school at the jamboree got to do this four times so that each offensive squad got 40 plays and each defensive squad got to defend against 40 plays. Coaches are on the field with the teams to provide on-the-spot instruction and advice. The scrimmages also include the participation of referees who call penalties if required and control the scrimmage. Sunny conditions with just a slight breeze blowing prevailed for the jamboree which attracted almost a full house in the stands on the west side of the field. The idea of a jamboree like this one is that it provides an introduction to football for players who have perhaps never played the game previously. It gives the players an exposure to the game in the hope that they might opt to try out for the school’s varsity football team in the fall.

Entrepreneur Week Giant Tiger’s business philosophy focuses on customer satisfaction, community involvement President says company’s model is one for entrepreneurs to emulate Staff

Community - Since the first Giant Tiger store opened its doors in Ottawa’s ByWard Market in 1961, every step taken has been done with the customer in mind, the company’s president says. By the end of August this year, the company will have 207 stores in communities across Canada, including six new stores. “Our goal is certainly to add store count and continue to grow because we think there’s a lot of markets yet that we’re not in that we think we should be in,” said Greg Farrell, Giant Tiger president and chief operating officer, adding the company regularly receives feedback from customers who would like to see Giant Tiger stores open in their cities. For that reason, Giant Tiger’s business model is one that entrepreneurs can learn from when it comes to achieving success in delivering outstanding customer service and creating an ideal working environment for employees. A key feature of the privately held Canadian company’s business model is profit sharing for the more than 2,000 employees, including at warehouses, franchise stores, the trucking division and home office, which is located at 2480 Walkley Rd. in Ottawa. It encourages those within the Giant Tiger family to work harder and longer for the customers they serve, said Farrell. “Everyone contributes to the success, and everyone, thereby, should share in the success,” he added. That success is reliant on delivering quality products, from fashion and groceries to everyday supplies, at low prices to customers. “Everything is about reducing the cost to get the product onto the shelf and into the customers’ hands. That’s number

one and number two we will never be beat on price,” said Farrell. Giant Tiger’s customers appreciate the company’s many guarantees from providing rainchecks and accepting coupons to offering a satisfaction guarantee, a no-hassle refund policy, which includes no time limits on refunds, as well as price clawbacks and an ad-match guarantee. “The customer has to trust us that we have the best price,” Farrell said. Giant Tiger stores also offer convenience by offering friendly store layouts and accessible parking. The company also strives to deliver affordable fashions for the entire family. “We will match Target’s quality and style but beat them on price,” said Farrell, a Stittsville resident. “We will match Walmart’s price, but beat them on style.” Given the highly completive retail industry, the company’s management team and franchise store owners have built a solid name in a highpressure industry. “It’s all about trying to give confidence to our customer,” Farrell said. His advice to up-andcoming entrepreneurs also includes being clear on your competitive advantage and differentiating your business in the marketplace. “You also have to be willing and able to change and innovate,” he said, adding that the company also maintains its edge by keeping a close watch on competitors. Giant Tiger is also proudly Canadian. Today, there are fewer Canadian companies in the rapidly changing retail sector. “There’s a lot that have gone by the wayside, a couple of regional players that are in bankruptcy protection,” said Farrell. The company also prides itself in giving back to communities. “We have three brand pillars as to how we run our business, and one of them is being connected to our communities, and we think that’s really important,” he said, adding that the ways the company helps range from providing for families in need to supporting local hospital foundations and food banks. Each year, the company donates more than $2 million

News - (NC) - Pay it Forward initiatives are popular across Canada. They are successful because they benefit both those who give and those who receive. “The Canadian Youth Business Foundation has its own unique Pay It Forward movement,” says CYBF Mentor in Residence, Linda Morana. “Every day, thousands of business mentors nurture and support the fantastic ideas and energy of Canada’s young entrepreneurs. This is great for the entrepreneurs, but mentors get so much out of it too.” CRITICAL

CYBF research finds that a solid mentoring relationship is critical to the success of nearly every business startup. Research shows that 88 per cent of entrepreneurs who have mentors survive in business, compared with only 50 per cent of those who do not. Many successful young entrepreneurs cite “quality, meaningful mentorship” as a driving force for their businesses. Mentoring increases their confidence, risk-taking and vital skills development. By paying it forward, you will also build a culture in Canada that supports entrepreneurship – and that’s good for business and good for the country. More information is available online at www.cybf.ca/mentoring.

ADVERTORIAL

Keeping it all in the family for the sake of customers Brian Turner

News - Ottawa, from a automotive shopper’s perspective is blessed with a retailer per capita rate that is one of the highest in North America with 65 manufacturers’ dealerships, all operating with solid financial footing under professional customerfocused management. The number of dealers has doubled since 1971. Auto retailer ownership here has undergone its own version of restructuring and the results are providing more security for car owners as well as increased selection and a more competitive market. A great example of how family involvement can improve client satisfaction and long term viability can be found under the Myers nameplate. The name Myers first became associated with automotive retailing and service in Ottawa in 1942. At the time Gordon Myers established Myers Motors as the successor to Ottawa’s first General Motors dealership. After thriving through a series of dedicated owners, Hank Mews, the current

president, took over in 1975. Hank Mews joined Myers in February, 1971, as general manager. He was born and grew up in St. John’s Newfoundland and after graduating from high school, his first job was as a salesperson with a Ford dealership in St. John’s. BASELINE AND MERIVALE

From there, being uncertain about what career path to follow, Hank moved to mainland Canada and over the next few years he tried his hand as a commercial pilot, as a life insurance salesperson and finally as a representative in a Toronto Advertising Agency. Hank piloted Myers Chev-Olds Cadillac at the corner of Baseline and Merivale by himself until sons Harry and Robert joined

78 Stittsville News EMC - Thursday, June 5, 2014

the organization in the early 1990’s. They have held various management roles along the way and today are partners with Hank in all of the dealerships. They and their customers alike have benefited from examples lived and lessons passed down from their father. In the showroom, at the home dining table, or at the cottage, Harry and Robert were constantly exposed to Hank’s drive for success and his instruction. They have carried on Hank’s philosophy of providing superior customer satisfaction and the vision is to continue to evaluate opportunities for future growth. From early on, Hank Mews and his family realized that long term success would be dependent on providing outstanding customer service. They dedicated

much of their financial and human resources to building a reputation, one client at a time, of being competent, caring, and trustworthy. As a result, in a very competitive marketplace, Myers grew, their parts, service and collision repair departments flourished, and they quickly became recognized as one of General Motors’ top Canadian dealerships. They also learned that customers are most comfortable and loyal when dealing with a neighbourhood retailer that supports the community in an active partnership model. To serve the growing demand for local quality car retailers in growing outlying areas of the city, the Mews family opened Mews Chevrolet in Orleans in 1992. They quickly became a driving force in the burgeoning

Eastern city with a fastgrowing customer base and extended service hour’s right from the start. MOVING WEST

They moved west in 2003 by purchasing Elliott Chevrolet in Bell’s Corners and relaunching it as Chevy West. In 2005 they partnered with Keith Bean and amalgamated 2 great GM stores in Brockville into a gleaming 4-line GM store. They expanded outside the GM family with the addition of Myers Hyundai in 2008 in Ottawa West quickly earning Hyundai Canada’s top President’s Award of Merit for superior customer satisfaction ratings. Myers Volkswagen in Kanata, Myers Kanata Hyundai, Myers Orleans Nissan followed as

did their newest member of the dealership family; Myers Kemptville Chevrolet Buick GMC. Each store is guided by an experienced and dedicated team of professionals, all committed to Hank Mew’s philosophy of providing an exceptional experience to every customer whether they’re buying a $39 oil change service or a $75,000 luxury sedan. No one rests on the laurels of past successes or gets any slack because they’re family. Each store, every manager and department head, all of the friendly staff answers to their customers and in this way they are responsive and proactive to the specific and unique needs of the areas they represent. They are proud to serve and be part of their Ottawa and Eastern Ontario neighbourhoods. Every year, the Myers Automotive Group gives back generously through donations to youth development groups, local hospitals, and the United Way. With family leadership like this, it’s easy to understand why the auto retail industry in our region is the cream of the crop.

nificant wartime anniversaries – the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War and the 75th anniversary of the beginning of the Second World War. At this event, the Museum will be launching a new exhibit that tells the story of how these two World Wars impacted the social history of Goulbourn township. The display will tell about the changing role of women at that time as well as about the wartime economy and the evolution of the family at that time. “Homegrown Heroes” will feature military groups, demonstrators and re-enactors. You will also be able to examine a World War Two jeep and will have the opportunity to transmit a live message via Morse Code with assistance from members of the Morse Telegraph Club and the Cumberland Telegraph Operator’s Club. In addition, those attending will be able to add the name of a loved one to the Museum’s Memorial Tree. This is a new addition to the Museum site that was generously donated by the Fallowfield Tree Farm. But there’s more happening at this “Homegrown Heroes” event on Father’s Day! There will be free games, a silent auction, a book sale and an oldfashioned photo booth operated by professional photographers from Henry’s. The Glen Scottish Restaurant and Pub will be on site at the event with its Tartan Kitchen, serving up the restaurant’s renowned fish and chips at a reasonable price. And if you like to cycle, think about going there on two wheels. The Goulbourn Museum recently became a member of the “Ontario By Bike” network and thanks to the city of Ottawa, it now has a convenient bike rack right on site. Everyone is invited to attend this free Father’s Day event. Those of all ages are welcome. The Goulbourn Museum is located at 2064 Huntley Road at Flewellyn Road which is where Stittsville Main Street turns into Huntley Road. For more information, please visit the Museum’s website at http:// goulblurnmuseum.ca/whats-happening/ or call 613-831-2393. If you use the image sharing app Instagram, you can follow the Goulbourn Museum for snapshots of museum work, activities and the Museum’s new weekly hashtag #WhatsItWednesday. The Goulbourn Museum also has accounts on Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter and You Tube so it’s easy to stay in touch with the Museum and its activities.

Father’s Day breakfast News - A Father’s Day breakfast will be held at the Legion Hall on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville on Sunday, June 15 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon. Everyone is welcome to attend. Only $6 per person.
