Celebrating War of 1812 at Museum John Curry

EMC news - June 1812 marked the beginning of the War of 1812. Now, 200 years later, it’s bicentennial celebration time for this war, one which had an impact on the creation of Canada in 1867. And one place where this bicentennial is being marked is at the Goulbourn Museum which has a day-long celebration event planned for Sunday, June 17, running from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. This free community-oriented event will feature historical re-enactors dressed in period military uniform, fun games and activities including “Mako a Shako” and “Find the Shilling,” two new exhibits at the Museum, a silent auction, book sale and BBQ. Since June 17th is also Father’s Day, this is a great opportunity for a special family outing. It will be a great opportunity to learn a little about the 100th Regiment of Foot which is Goulbourn’s direct link to the War of 1812. This Regiment saw action throughout the War of 1812 and then later, in 1818, many of its soldiers became Goulbourn’s first settlers. The Canadian Fencibles re-enactment group will be on hand for the event. This is a group of enthusiasts dedicated to the memory of the original Canadian Regiment of Fencible Infantry which fought in the War of 1812. The group strives to portray the regiment’s uniforms, equipment and drill from that period. The group has participated in a variety of different re-enactments over the years from full encampments with other recreated units at major historical sites to local events like this one coming up at the Goulbourn Museum. The Regiment itself played a role in two key battles of the War of 1812, the Battle of Crysler’s Farm near Morrisburg and the Battle of the Chateauguay in Quebec. During the War of 1812, the Canadian Regiment of Fencible Infantry had duties which ranged from the protection of the Montreal area in 1812; serving as marines on Lake Champlain in 1813; fighting the Americans near Plattsburg in two separate engagements, in Feb. and March 1814, with both featuring stiff fighting; and finishing out 1814 with garrison duty at Kingston. This was followed by garrison duty at York in 1815, followed by duty at Fort George. The Regiment was disbanded in Montreal in 1816.

Circus-like family fun day Special to the News

EMC news - The circus is coming to Stittsville. Well, not a circus as such but certainly a circus-like atmosphere as circus will be the theme for a family fun day which is being held at Stittsville United Church this coming Sunday, June 10. Everyone in the community is welcome to attend this family fun day which will begin at 11:15 a.m. immediately following the church’s regular worship service at 10 a.m. There will be a free BBQ with potluck

salads and desserts. A circus atmosphere will prevail with the appearance of the “Godspell clowns” dressed in costume who will be offering races, games, face painting and other fun activities for those of all ages. There will be an inflatable obstacle course set up covering the entire front lawn of the church which should be challenging and fun for everyone. Other activities, which will continue until 3 p.m., will include water balloon fights, sidewalk chalk art contests and eating cotton candy. This Sunday fun day will also include the honouring of the

church’s Sunday School teachers for all the love and care that they have given and shown to the children of the church over the past year. The church hopes that everyone in the community will drop in and share in the fun of this circus-themed family fun day. A large sign will be set up at the corner of Fernbank Road and Stittsville Main Street at the church to publicize the event and welcome everyone to drop in. Stittsville United Church is located on Fernbank Road just west of Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville.

Helping through music John Curry

EMC news - Erin Parkes of Stittsville believes that music can help special needs youngsters. That is why she is launching the Lotus Centre for Special Music Education, the first of its kind in North America. Add in the fact that she is a music teacher herself, is a doctoral student at McGill University where she has been researching the impact of music on special needs youngsters and is a mother of a six year old son with autism, Erin seems like a natural to launch such an innovative program. Its official opening will be happening on Sunday, June 17 from noon to 5 p.m. at 100 Schneider Road off March Road in Kanata in 1750 square foot premises adjacent to the Kanata Music Centre. Youngsters from all across the area are expected to be students at this new facility. There has been very little research done on the impact of music education on special needs children. That is why this new Lotus Centre for Special Music Education will also be a research and teacher training centre as well as a music education spot for children. Many children with developmental disorders or learning disabilities respond to music, Erin points out, noting that exposure to music can improve the motor skills of such children. Children with autism, for

example, have trouble with communication and language. But with music, these children can communicate without having to cross the language barrier. Erin also points out that children with autism frequently tend to have perfect pitch and so they can learn music well by ear. Difficulties with communication are eliminated. To begin, the Lotus Centre for Special Music Education will be offering its services at a price comparable to regular music lessons. That’s because the lotus Centre for Special Music Education is a nonprofit organization and all of the teachers, including Erin, are offering their services on a volunteer basis, at least for now. In addition, Erin says that as a parent of an autistic child, it is important to her to offer the programs at the Lotus Centre for a price as low as possible. She knows the challenges associated with raising a child with developmental or learning disabilities. Programming for the Lotus Centre continues to evolve but there will be a music and movement program. There will be group classes as well as private music lessons offered. In addition, Erin is looking for a guitar teacher and also a drummer. A drum circle, for instance, can be helpful for children with coordination issues. The Lotus Centre for Spe-

cial Music Education hopes to add to the currently sparse research about the efficiency of different teaching methods and to determine if music lessons can improve functioning in other areas such as fine motor skills for children with developmental disorders and learning disabilities. If it can be proven that music does improve functioning in other areas, then music could become a valuable aspect of education for special needs youngster. Erin is one of a small number who are undertaking research in this field. There is ongoing work in Finland and the United Kingdom but Erin is virtually unique in Canada doing research on this subject. She continues to believe that there is much value in music education for special needs children but unfortunately this has not been a priority at all for those involved in music education. Erin hopes to change this with her Lotus Centre for Special Music Education. Erin chose the name “Lotus” for her new endeavour because of the connection of the lotus with yoga, which she really enjoys, but also because the lotus flower symbolizes a person growing into his or her full potential. This is what she hopes to accomplish for special needs children with her Lotus Centre for Special Music Education. She is open to offer yoga with music or any other program that would make a difference for special needs children that is not available anywhere at present. Through the Lotus Centre for Special Music Education, Erin hopes to meet a community need for specialized music education for children who would benefit from such programming. In her view every child has a right to appropriate education including in music. This stems from a belief that

Erin Parkes of Stittsville is the founder and executive director of the new Lotus Centre for Special Music Education. A fundraising event for this non-for-profit organization is being held this Saturday, June 9 at 6 p.m. at the Community Bible Church on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville. music education can provide a means of communication, can improve function and performance in non-musical areas and can provide an emotional outlet. Erin hopes to provide individually designed music education programs to allow students with developmental disorders or learning disabilities to reach their full potential. Students from age two to adult who have developmental disorders or learning disabilities as well as those with a gifted learning profile will be the main focus at the Lotus Centre. But any student who would benefit from individually designed alternative music education will be welcome. Erin developed her concept of the Lotus Centre based on her experiences teaching children with special needs,

the diagnosis of her son with autism spectrum disorder and her doctoral research. All three indicated to her a pressing need for a specialized centre that could provide music lessons, conduct research to determine the most effective methods and train other teachers to work with children with special needs. Erin has her Bachelor of Music, Master of Arts in musicology and a graduate certificate in piano pedagogy from the University of Ottawa. She has completed the course work for her doctorate in music education at McGill University where she is researching music education for children with autism spectrum disorder and learning disabilities. She has taught music since 1996, working with youth of all ages. She frequently presents at conferences on music

Year end concert is more than a musical treat John Curry

EMC news - As a concert, it was a musical treat. As a night reciting memories, it was awesomely humourous. And as a night to remember, it was priceless. Yes, the year end concert of the bands at South Carleton High School in Richmond was more than a simple musical performance. It included personal memories, a slide show of the bands’ recent trip to Boston and a ceremony recognizing the 20 musicians who are graduating from SCHS this year and moving on. Indeed, it was a concert, a yearbook and a graduation all rolled into one delightfully entertaining and engaging evening last Thursday, May 31. Musically, each of the bands – the junior band under teacher Roberta Archibald, the senior band under teacher Sarah Woods and the jazz band which was directed at times by both teachers – performed a number of pieces, all of which showed the high standards to which these bands adhere. It is no wonder that the junior band this year became the first SCHS band to win a gold standing at the Music Festival and that the senior band won gold in its appearance at the Nationals. These guys and gals are good! Just ask the 300 or so who just about filled the cafetorium at South Carleton to take in this windup concert. And the jazz band – well, what can you say about it? Its rendition of a Count Basie tune had the big band sound of that famous American jazz band leader filling the hall, much to everyone’s delight. And the individual soloists featured in each tune received rousing applause following their time in the spotlight. It was jazz at its best. As for memories, the evening was filled with them, as each song was introduced by a pair of senior band members who before announcing the song to be played told of a favourite memory from their years in the band program.

These memories varied from parades and band trips to practises in a hot band room to the annual band-a-thon to Mrs. Woods’ jokes with their delayed reaction from band members to a band member falling off the risers in the band room, not once but twice. But no matter what the memory, the message was the same – being in the band is a lot of fun with lots of friendships made. Making it a night to remember, at least for the 20 senior band members who are graduating from South Carleton this year, happened when they were called up on stage where they were embraced by both Mrs. Archibald and Mrs. Woods, received a presentation and had their future plans announced. These students next year are off to universities and colleges as diverse as Algonquin College for culinary arts, interior design, civil engineering technician and professional writing, the University of Ottawa for biomedical sciences, Carleton University for chemistry, linguistics, commerce and computer science, the University of Waterloo for engineering, Brock University for computer science, Queens University for science and Mount St. Vincent University for child and youth studies. These indeed are a talented bunch, not just in music but in their studies as well. The 20 band senior band members who were honoured were Josh Annand-Lavoie, Sarah Beieri, Sherry Cao, Larissa Cinnamon, Kristin Davis, Maggie Dewar, Laura Field, Paul Flipsen, Nicole Forester, Jessica Gibson, Hyuksoon Hwang, Leah MacGregor, Amanda McFarlan, Emily Menard, Alison Merritt, Pam Rowsell, Emily Schaefer, Miranda Tannahill, Alexis Varsava and Mike Zani. Those at the concert were treated to a drumming exhibition by three band members – Dennis Leask, Matt Allan and Dean Yorke-Slader. In previous concert they had made music with brooms and with garbage can lids. At this concert, they performed with an assortment of

Another highlight of the concert was the playing of “Old McDonald Had A Farm” by the graduating band members. Now, you may say, what’s so great about playing this wellknown children’s song by such experienced musicians. What made it special is that they were all playing instruments that they do not normally play. Part of the music program provides a two week period in which grade 12 students can try out another instrument. The result is “Old McDonald Had A Farm” and judging by the loud applause which it generated, this result is impressive.

The band members did not forget their teachers, Mrs. Archibald and Mrs. Woods. Citing a problem for some band members seeing them as they direct the band, the band members presented both of them with their own personalized podium on which to stand while directing the bands. The podiums not only featured their names but also had footprints painted on them, indicating where to stand while directing. The concert ended with a parent-created video presentation featuring the band’s recent trip to Boston, where the band worked with the Boston Symphony and saw sights such as the Harvard Library, Old City Hall, a statue of Ben Franklin, the Boston Aquarium and the Boston Pops.

what you should know about Protect your hearing: noise-induced hearing loss By: Injury and Substance Misuse Prevention Team Ottawa Public Health

Every day, you are exposed to sounds that can affect your hearing. Some of these sounds can cause permanent loss of hearing. Knowing how to protect your ears will help make sure hearing loss doesn’t happen to you.

Sound is measured in units called decibels (dB). Sounds that humans can hear are measured on a scale from 0 to 140. Sounds at or above 85 dB can damage your ears and 140 db causes sudden permanent damage.

Symptoms of damage include: distorted or muffled sound; difficulty understanding speech or a ringing, buzzing, roaring or rushing sound in the ear. If this happens to you, speak to your doctor. Here are some ways to protect your ears:

Noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) is hearing damage caused by loud sounds. It can occur as a result of a one-time exposure to an excessively loud sound or by ongoing exposure over a longer period of time. Loud noises can originate from a number of different sources such as power tools, outdoor power equipment, music at festivals, concerts or bars or music through speakers or headphones.

Common Sources

NIHL occurs in two stages. In the first stage, the individual will experience a brief decrease in hearing. • Wear properly fitted hearing protection devices such as earplugs At this point the damage is not permanent and can • Sit or stand away from the source of loud noise be reversed with rest. If this temporary damage like speakers at concerts or loud machinery repeatedly occurs or is not given time to heal, it will • Help your ears recover after being exposed to eventually result in permanent damage. loud noises by spending time in a quiet place • Limit time spent around excessive noise

No guarantees in life, including our pensions


he journey from birth to old age is littered with well intended

promises. Many are kept, but many vanish in a puff of smoke or in the battle against a life threatening disease and lately, in the destruction of a pension fund. There are few guarantees in life, but socially, we in Canada have been raised to believe that at the very least our final days will be

supported, hopefully, in a minimum way by some kind of pension. The ability to grow a private pension may be out of reach at the moment for many Canadians, so the Canada Pension Plan along with Old Age Security for many Canadian workers is all that there is. Of course if you start putting away a few dollars each month starting just a few minutes after you are born you may or may not have

enough money stashed away when you turn 65 to get by. News that the Conservative government was ready to tweak OAS created quite a stir. Many experts shouted at the government to leave well enough alone, that OAS was and continues to be in great shape. Others applauded the government for being brave enough to tinker with a Canadian icon of tremendous popularity and importance. Old age security and CPP are

pension icons, we as Canadians believe them to be part of the intricate Canadian weave. Using the example of dire economic situation in Europe and the failing pension funds there is at the very best a mistake. It is like comparing apples and oranges. The federal government has chosen a path of austerity for all of us in its latest budget, but that does not mean it is a perfect path. It is all about choices and the ones that have been made for

us regarding OAS may be a mistake. Part of the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recipe for economic stability in the future includes several strategies including tinkering with pensions. But they are fragile, just like the citizens they are designed to help. Canada has a very different economic reality compared to Europe. While no one in Canada is completely safe from economic disasters and employment glitches, such as the recent

plan to downsize thousands of public service jobs across the land, these kinds of strategies are problematic. We in Canada have a little more wiggle room than our European cousins, but not all that much. Saving money by extending the age when the OAS kicks in, according to some experts is folly, unnecessary and politically dangerous. Comparing our pension reality with those enjoying a pension in Greece is silly.


History alive and well in small towns CHARLES GORDON Funny Town


was out in Glengarry a couple of weekends ago for the 50th anniversary of the Glengarry Pioneer Museum at Dunvegan. It was a great occasion, beautiful day, sun shining on the flowers and grass around the preserved old buildings that make up the museum, a few people dressed up in period costume, a cake made to resemble the oneroom schoolhouse that is a recent addition to the museum. What was most striking was to see how a group of people in a community, in a county, have embraced their history and made it part of their present-day life. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that we may not see so much in cities, although each city has its history buffs and history projects, many of them quite impressive. But cities are made up largely of people who did not grow up in them, whereas there is a much greater continuity in smaller rural communities. Mind you, some of the most enthusiastic supporters of the Glengarry museum are from away too. They arrive, instantly immerse themselves in the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history and hurry to take part in it too. Once you are exposed to it, you realize that much of what we know about life in an earlier Canada is from the work of amateur historians, the ones who toil away for the sheer love of it. These are the the ones who keep track of their ancestors, who make a point of knowing who the pastor was in 1888, when the hotel opened, when it closed and when the school was moved from this patch of land to that one. Along with the amateur historians are the

preservationists, if you can call them that, those who keep the old books, the old farm implements, the old kitchen utensils. These show up in the local museums and give people a sense of what people once did day to day. The professional historian, the academic historian can give you a sense of the big picture â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the wars, the political issues, the major social and economic trends. But we owe the amateur, the local historian and the local museum for our sense of what it was like to be alive back then. Hey, the doorways were narrower, the ceilings lower, the church didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always have an organ and all those stumps had to be got of the way somehow before any work could be done in the fields. Never mind the wars in Europe. Never mind who was king of England at the time. We can also thank the fiction writers of the day, of whom there were far fewer than there are now. Here it is time for the full disclosure that the guy who wrote Glengarry School Days was my grandfather, which is one reason for me being in an old one-room school house in Dunvegan. In that book and others of the turn of the century and earlier, the stories reveal much about community and family life, the attitudes toward education and religion, the way children played and grown-ups worked. People, as we discover from reading the old books, went through the same range of emotions and problems as we do now but their surroundings were vastly different, their challenges both more and less daunting. Keeping warm was a lot more difficult in those days. Staying addiction-free was a lot easier. Kids probably took a lot more physical risks back then. But they live in a riskier environment now. In any community, large or small, there are some who are closely connected to their history and try to keep it alive. Everybody else is on Twitter apparently. Some day that may wind up in a museum too, but for the moment we should give thanks to the countless volunteers across the country who live in the past and keep it alive.

Hundreds tour Hydro Ottawa’s historic Generating Station No. 2 at Chaudière Falls


Your Community Newspaper

The Chaudière Generating Station No. 2 was open to the public as part of Doors Open Ottawa.

Hydro Ottawa provided a rare glimpse inside Canada’s oldest operating run-of-the-river hydroelectric generating station on June 2 and 3rd. Hundreds turned out for free tours of the historic generating station. The facility was open to the public as part of Doors Open Ottawa. Brought to the community by the City of Ottawa, it is the city’s largest heritage and architectural event. It gives visitors a rare opportunity to visit inside some of Ottawa’s most prestigious buildings and facilities.

Mom, can we go to another one?

“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 Holding Inc. “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.”

In 2001, the station was completely rebuilt. All of the generators were rewound, the turbines were replaced, the channels and dam structures were rehabilitated and the station was completely automated. All heritage elements of the station were preserved, with the equipment looking as it did 100 years ago.

Groups launch awareness campaign Special to the News

EMC news - A coalition of community groups including the Stittsville Village Association has launched a public awareness campaign about Waste Management’s proposed new landfill on Carp Road. Other groups in the coalition include No Dump. ca, the Richardson Corridor Community Association, Moving Mountains, and The campaign is based on the premise that Waste Management has failed to raise sufficient awareness about the planned new landfill site on Carp Road. “Many residents of Kanata,

Stittsville and West Carleton are unaware of the company’s plans to build another mega dump on Carp Road and the serious environmental and social impacts that the project will have on the community,” says Vincent Lavoie, a volunteer with the coalition. As part of its public awareness campaign which it has named “Don’t Let Ottawa Go To Waste,” the coalition has erected road signs about the proposed new landfill at various locations in the area including on Hazeldean Road, Stittsville Main Street and Carp Road. In addition, the coalition has mailed an information flyer to over 27,000

homes in Stittsville, Kanata and West Carleton. The coalition is also asking residents to write letters opposing the new landfill to the Ontario Minister of the Environment. It was in Jan. 2011 that Waste Management began an Environmental Assessment (EA) process about the proposed new landfill. A draft EA report has now been prepared based on a series of public open houses which Waste Management held since the process began. It is expected that Waste Management will soon have a final EA report ready which will then go to the Ministry of the Environment for approval.

EMC news - Last Saturday, June 2 marked a special milestone in the life of the Cambodian Buddhist Temple on Hazeldean Road in Stittsville. It was a celebration of the 27th anniversary of its founding back in 1985. To mark the occasion, more than 30 attended this special event which began at 10 a.m. and finished with lunch for everyone. After an address by head monk Rath Sam, the Buddhist tradition of the congregation in providing food for the monks took place, with a table stretching in front of the three monks of the Temple – Rath Sam, Bunna Ny and Socheat Norng – being filled with bowls of food. In the Buddhist tradition, monks serving a Temple do not work for money. Rather they are viewed as volunteers who teach the people how to live happily and get along with others. Buddhist monks do not have any material possessions and live depending on the generosity and support of the people who attend the Temple. In this tradition, on ceremonial occasions, food is provided to the monks. The food, though, is not only for the monks. The monks eat first and then everyone present partakes. After the food is placed before the monks, as happened last Saturday at this special anniversary celebration, chanting takes place before The Community Bible Church at 1600 Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville is hosting a Walk for Water fundraiser on Saturday, June 23 beginning at 9 a.m. Everyone in the community is welcome to participate in this four kilometer walk to Paul Lindsay Park in Stittsville and back again to symbolize the hike that the villagers of Seje in Kanya must make daily to collect water from a nearby river. Funds raised in this Walk for Water will be used to bring a clean and sustainable water course to





the food is eaten. By this chanting, which is done in the Pally language which is one of the oldest languages of India that is also used in Theravada Buddhism, the monks are accepting the food offerings and giving thanks to those who provided the food, wishing them happiness and good luck. In addition, the chanting recognizes and honours the spirit of ancestors who passed away. The current location of the Cambodian Buddhist Temple on Hazeldean Road in Stittsville is the Temple’s third site in its 27 year history. The Temple was initially located on Arlington Avenue in Ottawa from its founding in 1985 to 1987. It then relocated to Morisset Avenue in Ottawa where it remained through to 2004 when it relocated to its current Hazeldean Road location. Over the years at this site, improvements have been made to increase the visibility of the Temple. Two golden lions now grace the front of the site, along with flags. The rear of the Temple includes a spacious paved parking lot. The goals of the Cambodian Buddhist Temple are to promote the teaching of the Buddhist faith in the National Capital Region, to provide religious services and educational instruction in the Buddhist faith, to provide religious, educational, cultural and charitable services to the community at large, and to meet the cultural, social and charitable needs of the community.

If you would like to participate in the Walk, registration is now open for individuals and teams at The “Diplomats” will be appearing on Saturday, June 23 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Stittsville Legion Hall on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville. Eight dollar cover charge which includes dinner. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Colourful arena setting for ‘Girls Night Out’ John Curry

EMC news - You have never seen the Richmond arena quite like this before. Sure, there were hundreds of women present, filling the ice slab. But this has happened before, since this was the sixth annual “Girls Night Out” event to be held at the arena. And there was a silent auction, with the items ranging from quilts to lamps to furniture on display all around the outside of the ice slab. But this has been the case at previous “Girls Night Out” events. And there was a live auction, presided over by MC Brian “Motor Mouth” Goudge, with trips to New York City, California wine country and Mont Tremblant all up for grabs, along with furniture. But a live auction has happened at the previous “Girls Night Out” events as well. And there were the other “attractions,” like the Cabana Boys and their strawberry margaritas at the Tiki Bar and the volunteer firefighters who escorted the ladies to their seats, who served as spotters for the live auction and who helped successful bidders carry their purchases away at the end of the evening. But never before had all this happened in such colourful surroundings, thanks to the decorating job done by Janice Gregory and her helpers – Janice Mortensen and Kristina Voth-Childs. Their efforts brought a splash of colour to the arena setting for the event. This included coloured pompoms and Japanese umbrella and fan-like circular decorations on the backdrop to the stage. The circular decorations also adorned the glass all around the rink surface, creat-

ing a touch of brightness and transforming the arena into a homier, more intimate, more relaxing space. Having bouquets of green, pink and blue balloons straddling the stage and located elsewhere around the ice slab also contributed to this feeling of colour and brightness for the event’s atmosphere – you felt cheerier thanks to these decorations. And this year’s event last Friday evening, June 1 was a good time to have such a cheery interior because outside it was pouring rain, not the idyllic spring weather that usually has prevailed for this annual event. The interior was also enlivened this year by the appearance of a comedian, veteran Canadian comic Glen Foster who goes by the moniker “That Canadian Guy” stemming from his Gemini nominated comedy special of that name. His 45 minute performance saw him give a wide range of comedic observations, with his lapses into other accents (British, Scottish and French) proving particularly amusing. He expressed the hope that he will lose some weight and to this end he has joined a gym. But he lamented that to actually lose weight, he also has to go to the gym as well. And he lamented as well how Earth Day seems to have become Earth Hour and soon may morph into just a moment of silence for the earth. This year’s “Girls Night Out” was catered once again by AJ’s Catering but under the direction of new owners Paul and Cindy Moore. The silent auction, which ended promptly at 8 p.m., boasted a wide range of items up for grabs, ranging from a log house bird feeder to light-

In the live auction, a luxury weekend in New York City, minus transportation, went for $2,750. A trip to California’s wine orchards, which included air transportation, went for over $3,000. Other items auctioned off included a weekend getaway near Mont. Tremblant and the ever-popular Ottawa Senators game tickets. An electrically-powered leather three-piece couch, valued at $7,999, ended up going for a real steal at $3,600. This “Girls Night Out”

event will not be held at the Richmond arena next year since the arena is scheduled to be undergoing renovations at the time. Event sponsor Friends of Hospice Ottawa is now investigating an alternative venue for next year’s event. Friends of Hospice Ottawa relies on a vast team of volunteers in order to stage this major fundraising event. Ruth Cameron, the fundraising manager for Friends of Hospice Ottawa, was the event chair with volunteer Alice Holst as co-chair. The ticket sales committee was chaired by Lynn Hull

with Diane Vaughn looking after the finance. Kathleen Sterling chaired the silent and live auction committee along with co-chair Sharon Davies. Bill Reid and Dave Read looked after the bar committee while Sonya Kinkade, Shauna Kirkham and the Cabana Boys handled the margarita Tiki Bar. Dale Greene and the Richmond Agricultural Society formed the setup and take down committee. The “Lucky Card” draw was handled by Jennifer Cameron and Tanya Colwell while Roy Campbell served as the TD Canada Trust waiter coordinator. Sharon Davies and Bart Hughes served as firefighter coordinators while Sherry Belding and Inge Kelly looked after the Friends of Hospice Ottawa promotional table at the event. Gary Belding and the Goulbourn Kiwanis Club provided a designated driver service. Steve Onions served as the photographer for the event. Event volunteers included Joyce Barr, Dave Cameron, Lisa Cox, Maha El-Chantiry, Jill Fridgen, Pauline Gagne, Ann Harris, Samantha Hills, Larry Hull, Sonya Kinkade, Shauna Kirkham, Nicole Lehmann, Brenda Lindsay, Shelley Mair, Karen McEwen, Robyn McEwen, Pat McKinnon, Jessica McMichaels, Greta McNaughton, Adrienne Oliver, Lucy Olmstead, Christine Renwick, Agnes Romanowski, Sharon Sadler, Bryce Simpson, Janice Sch-

neider, Alexandra Taylor and Garnet Vaughn. Ontario Medical Supply and Desjardins Pharmacy was the title sponsor for this year’s sixth annual “Girls Night Out.” Friends of Hospice Ottawa, which hosted this fundraising event, provides communitybased programs and services to help improve the quality of life for individuals and their families who are living with a life-threatening illness. Friends of Hospice Ottawa’s mission is to support, educate and empower those who are affected by or caring for a person with a life-threatening illness so that they may live as full a life as possible. All the funds raised by Friends of Hospice Ottawa at fundraising events like this “Girls Night Out” gala at the Richmond arena goes directly to the programs and services provided in the community. These programs and services include in-home volunteer support, day hospices, caregiver support, transportation, information and referral, bereavement support and community education. Friends of Hospice Ottawa received the Kanata Chamber of Commerce’s Peoples’ Choice award for best community supported non-profit organization for the years 2007, 2008, 2009, 2020 and 2011. Friends of Hospice Ottawa was also honoured as the NonProfit Organization of the Year by the Greater Nepean Chamber of Commerce in 2010.

Knights meet knights Special to the News

EMC news - It was knights meeting knights at the Rockin’ Royalty celebration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee at Village Square in Stittsville last Saturday. The knights in armour of the St. Lawrence Swordfighting Guild, when they visited the hot dog stand being run by the Knights of Columbus of Holy Spirit Parish in Stittsville, met these local Knights of the world’s largest Catholic fraternal service organization. The knights in armour, who were at the event to give demonstrations of the combat techniques of medieval times, chatted and posed for photos with these Knights of Columbus members manning

the local council’s new hot dog cart. Overnight rain and a morning of showers did not thwart this royal celebration in honour of Queen Elizabeth which included carriage rides, a British battle of the bands, entertainment by the Shakespearean-themed A Company of Fools, high tea, fascinators, a bouncy castle for youngsters and more. Indeed, the sun even broke through the clouds later in the day. It was all hosted by the Stittsville Youth Association, a newly formed organization which works with the youth connexion program in Stittsville to provide leadership and community involvement opportunities for youth in Stittsville.

Funding disparities in the classroom The first of a three-part series looks at the inequities in educational opportunities throughout Ontario By Kristen Calis, Jessica Cunha and Rosie-Ann Grover


n an affluent neighbourhood in the nation’s capital, a school that the prime minister’s children once attended is flush with cash. The money comes from serious fundraising that brings in $60,000 just in pizza lunches and a well-attended book fair. Rockcliffe Park Public School – a kindergarten to Grade 6 school with a large proportion of children from area embassies – does not disclose the total it brings in through fundraising by its heavily involved parents, students and teachers. But school council minutes show it had more than enough to spend $12,000 on hip-hop and drumming sessions for the arts program, a cricket skills tune-up and new equipment for the gym. Funds from the book fair covered the $5,000 for this year’s author workshop. It brings writers such as Alphabeasts sensation Wallace Edwards, a Governor General’s Award winner, to the school for – as the website puts it – “the extraordinary experience to have the opportunity to converse with an author of a book you have just read and loved!” Five kilometres away, at Queen Mary Street Public School, celebrated author meet-ups just don’t happen. This school, where the majority of students are from homes where English is a second language, is lucky if it raises $500 in a year, says Chris Ellis, who sits on four Ottawa school councils. Any fundraising proceeds that do come in go to the deficit-ridden milk program or to subsidize field trips for families struggling on an average parent income of $29,000, compared with $155,000 at Rockcliffe Park (figures from the Fraser Institute). An Arabic- and Somali-speaking multicultural liaison officer comes to Queen Mary twice a week. “Most of the schools that I’m directly involved with are schools that all struggle to raise funds,” Ellis says. “They’re dealing with communities that don’t have the capacity to raise funds, which is the irony of it; the schools that are most challenged – and you could arguably say have the greatest need for ad-

ditional resources – are the very schools that find it hard to raise funds.” Similar disparities exist across Ontario, where the top 10 per cent of fundraising schools bring in the same amount of money as the bottom 75 per cent combined, according to People for Education’s 2012 report on Ontario’s publicly funded schools. “You can see in that way how big the gap is,” says Annie Kidder, executive director of the parent-led organization. Society, not just parents, needs to be concerned with the gap. “It’s the next generation

Ontario schools fundraise? Many boards don’t want to say. Metroland surveyed 28 English public and Catholic school boards across Ontario and found more than half were reluctant to provide financial information. Fundraising is a sensitive issue, especially when disclosure of inequities is possible. In Waterloo, a public school board representative declined to provide a breakdown of funds raised, saying it would allow the public to see disparities. In Hamilton’s public board, teachers and principals were given scripts on how to respond to Metroland reporters. Only 11 of the 28 school boards surveyed provided their fundraising total. Fundraising in those boards pumped $26 million into their 788 schools. The remaining 17 boards provided

Fundraising is defined in this report as an activity in the school community conducted by parents, students and/or staff to raise funds for the benefit of the school and students. of society that’s being educated,” she says. “It will have an impact on everybody.” It means that schools with the ability to raise large sums can significantly enrich their students’ education with hightech learning aids such as laptops and SMART Boards. But in many schools, fundraising isn’t just for the frills. It’s for classroom basics such as air conditioning and books or breakfast programs. A survey of 28 school boards for this Metroland Special Report turned up fundraising gaps as large as half a million dollars between schools in the same board. It also underscored how firmly money from bake sales, car washes and other fundraising has become entrenched in the education system. Concern is growing about the overuse of fundraising – and the disparities it creates – at a time when public money is tightening under the McGuinty government’s austerity drive. And despite the province’s introduction last month of the first-ever guidelines for fundraising, there still are no formal rules, in the form of province-wide regulations, to govern the vast amounts of money collected. How much money do

only a broad figure that includes fundraising but is mixed in with other revenue (see chart). In boards that provided school-by-school breakdowns, there are significant gaps in money raised. In Halton’s public board, half a million dollars separates White Oaks Secondary in Oakville, which raised $511,000 last year, from Acton District High School, which took in just $8,000. There’s a significant difference in the size of the schools (2,100 at White Oaks; 546 in the small community of Acton) but the Acton school took in proportionally less. In York, more than $125,000 separates two elementary schools within the same board. St. Clare Catholic School, located in a wealthy Woodbridge neighbourhood, brought in $131,000. In a less affluent area in Markham, St. Francis Xavier Catholic Elementary School raised just $4,000. At Hamilton’s St. Joseph Catholic elementary school where parent involvement is high, the school took in $192,000. Five kilometres away in the north end of the city, St. Lawrence elementary brought in $9,800. Critics, school associations and parents say the need to

fundraise is the result of inadequate funding, making it necessary for schools to bulk up on private dollars, sometimes even for the basics. “Fundraising is so political. It’s basically a fallout. It’s a symptom of a bigger issue in public education,” says Catherine Fife, president of the Ontario Public School Boards’ Association, which has been calling for a funding model review for a number of years. Education Minister Laurel Broten says Ontario increased education funding to $20.3 billion in the 2010-11 school year, an increase of $6.5 million – or 45 per cent – since 2003, excluding capital programs. “Fundraising proceeds should only be used to com-

plement dollars of public investment to the schools and to the education system,” Broten says. “The Ministry of Education funds directly many programs and investments where we seek to ensure we have an equitable education system; our results are demonstrating that.” NDP education critic Peter Tabuns says students attending schools with the ability to fundraise large amounts will likely have better music and art classes, more computers and school trips. “You’ll see a richer educational experience for the children, and for the schools that have no money, things will be tighter,” Tabuns says. “They will have less access to computers, to textbooks, what we see as integral or im-

portant parts of a good, solid education.” Fundraising inequities have been building for more than 20 years, says Kidder, of People for Education. “It’s really important to remember that kind of the fundamental premise of public education is to crassly provide a level playing field for kids or to overcome intergenerational cycles of poverty,” she says. “All children should have a fairly equitable chance for success and if you start to entrench fundraising as a core component of the funding for education, the danger is that you actually increase the inequity rather than narrow it.” To read the full text, visit

Students hear about dangers of distracted driving John Curry

EMC news - Distracted driving can kill. Examples of deaths caused by distracted drivers highlighted an hour long presentation by representatives of Drop It and Drive, a distracted driving prevention group, who brought their message to about 400 students at an assembly at Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Stittsville last Monday, June 4. Among those helping them convey the message about the dangers of distracted

driving was city of Ottawa mayor Jim Watson who reminded the students that it is illegal to text while driving and even while stopped at a traffic light. He noted that in the time that it takes to send an average text message, a person will have driven the length of a football field without looking at the road. The mayor warned the students of the damage that they could do to themselves, their vehicle and to someone else as a result of such distracted driving behaviour. He told of statistics that show that 17 percent of the motor vehicle collisions

that occurred between 2006 and 2010 involved distracted drivers. This could include eating or texting or other behaviours. Karen Bowman, founder of the Drop It and Drive distracted driving program which is based in British Columbia but has become national, who received a Safer Roads Ottawa Champions Award from mayor Watson and city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri, urged students to take the “Leave The Phone Alone” pledge and to mean it.

8 HOBIN STREET PUBLIC MEETING The landowner of 8 Hobin Street has provided a revised proposal for development at this site.

I encourage you to attend the public meeting I have arranged to further discuss this proposal.

Distracted driving presentation From STUDENTS, page 23

This would entail making a commitment to focus on the road while driving and thus be part of the solution, not part of the problem. Pledge reminders were handed out to all of the students as they left the presentation. Ms. Bowman told how her

own eight year old daughter was struck and injured by a distracted driver and how her daughter still suffers from repercussions of the collision including post traumatic stress disorder. This was not the only story that the students heard. They heard about an eight year old girl who was struck by a ve-

hicle going 25 miles per hour as the driver was ďŹ nishing a phone call in the car. They heard as well about a 21 year old girl who was killed by a distracted driver who was placing iced tea in a cup holder, taking eyes off the road for a short period of time. They also were told about a 21 year old who was making

a U-turn while using his cell phone and died in the ensuing crash. They heard about a 21 year old Quebec girl who died in a crash while texting. And more, all with the message that you have to be alert and watching the road while driving and also even while walking anywhere near any vehicular trafďŹ c. RCMP ofďŹ cer Corporal Bryan Fedirchuk explained that there is a difference be-

tween an accident, which is the result of an act of God, as it were, and a collision which is a crash which occurs because of driver inattention or impairment or because of road conditions. He told how he has seen men shaving while driving; has seen women putting on makeup while driving; and has seen a person reading the sports section of a newspaper while speeding along. There is much more to distracted driv-

ing than just texting or use of a mobile device, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just your cell phone,â&#x20AC;? Corporal Fedirchuk said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just texting.â&#x20AC;? It can be any number of distractions, even a friend sitting beside you in the car who will not keep quiet, causing a distraction. He said that multi-tasking is a myth in that studies have shown that a person can do only one thing at a time.

Donation to Dreams Take Flight Special to the News

EMC news - Youngsters helping youngsters. That’s what has happened at the Jackson Trails School Age Program at St. Stephen Catholic School in Stittsville again this year as the program’s 65 children with the support of their parents have raised $1,000 to help the Ottawa Chapter of Dreams Take Flight. The funds will help Dreams Take Flight provide one-day trips to Disney World for children who have physical, mental or social challenges. This is the second straight year that the Jackson Trails School Age Program has raised funds for Dreams Take Flight. The experience last year was so inclusive and inspiring that it was decided to repeat it again this year. The Jackson Trails School Age Program held a Dreams Take Flight fundraiser on Wednesday, April 4, with the oldest children volunteering to help out. All of the items sold at this fundraiser were projects that the children and staff created. So you had Disney character paintings. There was a cake raffle with each cake baked and decorated by the Jackson Trails School Age Program children. A “JTSAP (Jackson Trails School Age Program) Family and Friends Recipe Book” featuring over 80 recipes from families involved with the program was sold. Homemade puppets made out of fun fur and wild accessories that the children chose were also sold. When it was all said and done, a total of $1,000 was raised for Dreams Take Flight. The formal presentation of this $1,000 took place at the Jackson Trails School Age Program last Friday afternoon, June 1, with all of the children present as the funds were handed over to a representative from the Ottawa Chapter of Dreams Take Flight.

Friendship Club Special to the News

EMC news – On Wednesday, May 30, The Friendship Club held a luncheon followed by entertainment by Musical Memories.

International coverage for asbestos protest John Curry

EMC news - Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a locally-based protest of a Canadian government policy. And while it continues, it is getting international attention. It all began as a personal crusade by Rev. Michel Dubord of St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Anglican Church in Richmond, protesting the export of asbestos from Canada to developing countries. In April, Rev. Dubord held weekly one-hour silent protests at Memorial Park in Richmond, joined by several others as they stood beside a giant sign objecting to Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s export of asbestos. In May, Rev. Dubord brought his weekly one-hour silent protests to Village Square in Stittsville where the sign was set up to be viewed by motorists passing by on Stittsville Main Street and on Abbott Street. Rev. Dubord and his group of a handful of others were at the Village Square corner every Wednesday at 5 p.m. throughout May. But last Wednesday, May 30, saw an international as-

pect develop as a reporter and photographer from Der Spiegel, a German weekly news magazine which has a circulation of over one million, visited the group, interviewing Rev. Dubord as the magazine is working on a story about

Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s export of asbestos. The reporter is planning a trip to India as well as part of the story since India is one of the countries to which Canada exports asbestos. The German reporter cannot understand why Canada

Michel Dubord and Barbara Martin. The group, led by Rev. Dubord, is continuing its weekly 5 p.m. Wednesday protest vigils in Kanata.

continues to export asbestos, a cancer causing material, to countries such as India. In Germany, asbestos is no longer used, much like in Canada where asbestos is viewed as a cancer-causing material that is no longer used. But federal government policy still allows for asbestos to be exported to other countries. It is this export of asbestos that Rev. Dubord and his supporters in this cause are opposed to. Rev. Dubord is not giving up his protest. Indeed, he foresees continuing with the protests through to the winter and even beyond. He is now taking his silent one-hour protest vigils to Kanata. Beginning this past Wednesday, June 6, and continuing this coming Wednesday, June 13, he and his protest sign will be at the corner of Castlefrank Road and Kakulu Road in Kanata, again at 5 p.m. After these two weeks at this location, he expects to continue the Wednesday protests at another Kanata location.



Rev. Dubord feels that the protests are making a difference, at least in increasing awareness of the situation and getting Canadians to ask questions. He likens the protest to throwing a pebble into the water and creating ripples. If the pebble is never thrown, the ripples will never happen. So, by having these protests, he is throwing a pebble into the waters of Canadian politics. Where any ripples will lead remains to be seen. He is frustrated, as indeed the Der Spiegel reported has been, by the lack of Canadian government response to these concerns. Even the Der Spiegel reporter admitted that the Canadian government is being very silent on the whole issue, not responding to any inquiries. Rev. Dubord is hopeful that the Anglican Church of Canada may soon be issuing a formal proclamation on the issue. He feels that if this happens, adherents of other faiths may also take up the challenge and start asking questions about Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s policy about the ex-

port of asbestos to developing countries. Rev. Dubord wants to get a conversation going among the public about why Canada is pursuing this policy of exporting asbestos, a known cancer causing material. In Canada, asbestos use is not banned but because of its known health risks, Canadians simply do not use it. But despite the known health hazards, Canada exports thousands of tons of asbestos each year to countries like India, Thailand and Indonesia. Most of this Canadian asbestos is shopped overseas as loose fibre in bags. Workers in these countries then dump these bags of asbestos by hand, creating clouds of carcinogenic dust swirling around them. The main question is that if a protect is considered dangerous for the Canadian population, why is it not considered dangerous for those in foreign countries like India. Past governments have removed asbestos from the Parliament Buildings at considerable expense because of its hazardous tendencies. But the federal government still spends money to promote Canadian asbestos to overseas nations. Rev. Dubord notes that exposure to asbestos in the countries to which Canada is exporting the substance will cause health problems, perhaps not today but certainly down the road as the asbestos fibres penetrate the lungs of its handlers and start causing respiratory and cancer problems and eventually a prolonged death. He says that it makes a difference to protest Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s policy allow the export of asbestos because it tells those whose health has been adversely affected that there are people who care. Chrysotile asbestos is mined in Quebec and exported to developing countries with the support of the current Canadian government. Asbestos mining in Quebec represents the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fourth largest production of chrysotile asbestos. This export of asbestos to developing nations is being done despite the fact that the World Health Organization estimates that asbestos kills at least 90,000 people a year which is about half of all occupational cancer deaths. In Canada, strict occupational health and safety rules prevent the exposure of Canadian workers to such materials. Such rules are not prevalent in developing nations. Asbestos ends up killing since it sheds tiny dust fibres continuously. Once inhaled, these fibres become tangled with lung tissues where they cause cancer, typically lung cancer, asbestosis and mesothelioma. These are killers. The current Canadian government of the Conservatives supports the continuing mining and exporting of asbestos in Quebec.

Schleroderma sufferer organizes ‘A Walk in the Park’ John Curry

EMC news - For Karen Nielsen of Stittsville, her daily life is impacted by Scleroderma, a chronic, often progressive autoimmune disease which literally means “hard skin” because it can cause thickening and tightening of the skin as well as serious damage to internal organs. But after being diagnosed with Diffuse Scleroderma six years ago, Karen, with the support of her siblings, decided to do something in the quest to find appropriate treatments and a cure for the disease. That’s why they organized “A Walk in the Park for Scleroderma,” which is now marking its fourth annual this Saturday, June 9. Karen, as a Scleroderma patient, knows first hand how the disease can wreak havoc on day-to-day living. In her case, it affects her ability to care for her family. Besides raising funds to find treatments and a cure, the walk is also meant as a way to bring the families, patients and others affected by this rare disease together to create more awareness about the illness. Karen points out that there currently is no cure or medi-

cations for Scleroderma. “All we can do is try our best to treat the symptoms as they arise,” she writes in an email. “Research is our only hope.” And progress is being made. Researchers in both Canada and elsewhere around the word have been making some promising discoveries and a possible treatment for Scleroderma is now within the realm of possibility. Although Scleroderma strikes every age, sex and ethnic background, more than 80 percent of patients are female between the ages of 25 and 55. It is estimated that there are as many as 40,000 cases of Scleroderma in Canada. This year’s “A Walk in the Park for Scleroderma” is taking place at Vincent Massey Park at Heron Road and Riverside Drive in Ottawa this Saturday, June 9. Registration will start at 10 a.m. while the walk will begin at 11 a.m. It is a leisurely walk of either one kilometer or five kilometers which is growing in popularity because it is a family oriented event. The walk will be followed by a BBQ starting at 12 noon and the distribution of some prizes. This walk in Ottawa, founded by Karen, is the

Richmond entertainers Pam and Doug Champagne will be performing on Saturday, June 16 starting at 8 p.m. at the Legion Hall on Stittsville Main Street. It promises to be a great evening of music and dance. There will be a $5 cover charge. The “Diplomats” will be appearing on Saturday, June 23 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Legion Hall.

second oldest in the country. Hamilton has been hosting such a walk for over a decade, with this year’s walk being the 13th annual. This is Ottawa’s fourth annual walk while London is hosting its third annual walk this year. Halifax is holding its first ever walk this year. All of these walks take place in June since June is Scleroderma Awareness Month. The Ottawa walk was held first at Vincent Massey Park but then switched to Lac Leamy for two years. This year its back at Vincent Massey Park which is more

central and is a great spot to go for a walk. Those wanting to participate in this “A Walk in the Park for Scleroderma” at Vincent Massey Park this Saturday, June 9 can register online at the Running Room website or can register at Vincent Massey Park on the day of the walk. Gifts will be presented to all walkers to participate with a minimum of $30 in pledges. “It’s amazing how this event has generated so much support and awareness over the years – the walkers and sponsors have donated over

$30,000 in total to the Scleroderma Society,” says Karen Nielsen. For most people with Scleroderma, the disease has a serious impact on daily life and for some it can become a life-threatening disease. For more information about this upcoming “Walk in the Park for Scleroderma,” please contact Karen Nielsen at 613-795-9570 or via email at All funds raised by the walk will support Scleroderma research across Canada through the Scleroderma Society of Ontario.

Sacred Heart student loves planning events John Curry

EMC news - Keely Noiles is a details person. The 16 year old grade ten student at Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Stittsville likes to be involved in planning events, especially all of the minute details involved. “I love planning events,” she says quite simply and the proof is in her actions. She recently was a key organizer for the “Be The Change” anti-bulling assembly which was held at the school. The brainchild of fellow student Lexi Clement, this assembly featured as a speaker Hannah Brunsdon, a Stittsville youth who has suffered from depression and anxiety and is now a spokesperson advocating for youth mental health issues. The assembly also featured a skit, a rap, anti-bulling videos and students speaking about bullying. Keely, who wanted to get involved with the assembly as soon as she heard about it, handled many of the stage management details and organizational details. This is where she flourishes. She is happy that many

teachers and students have praised the assembly which she hopes will become an annual event at the school, fighting back against bullying. Keely admits that she gets her detailed approach to things from her mother whom she describes as a very organized person who makes labels for everything. Keely also got involved with the recent Grad Inspiration Day. While all of the events had been planned, she was one of the students who took on the nuts and bolts of the events and made sure that everything was in place to ensure that the day went off without a hitch. Again, it was her ability to deal with the various organizational details of the event that helped ensure that this Grad Inspiration Day was memorable and successful. This same attention to detail was evident in a cake which she and her friend Erin Sauve made for the recent fundraising cake auction at the school. It took them a whole week to make the cake which ended up being the second biggest

seller in the cake auction, going for over $1,500. The year before, she was involved with a cake which was the third biggest seller. So she is expecting that next year, she will be involved with the top selling cake if history unfolds as it should. Since the cake was entered on behalf of the student group that will be travelling to Nicaragua next March, it featured the flag of Nicaragua along with a central globe of Rice Krispies, surrounded by cupcakes featuring little bodies on them, all facing the same way. “We’re all one family,” is how Keely describes the concept that was being conveyed by the cake. Keely first heard about the school’s trips to the Dominican Republic when she was in grade eight and liked the idea since those students returning always seemed to return having gained much more than they were able to give in terms of appreciation of life in Canada. Next year the student trip will be to Nicaragua rather than the Dominican Republic but the experience will

be similar. Already the group going, including Keely, has been fundraising, holding a recent talent show, hosting a pancake breakfast, holding a bottle drive and selling raffle tickets. There are plans to do even more fundraising in the fall and you can bet that Keely will be contributing her organization skills to these endeavours. Keely volunteers at a summer camp north of Peterborough which caters to poor children and she likens her experience there to what she thinks will be her feelings on returning from Nicaragua next March. At the summer camp, she has experienced big smiles on the faces of the children enjoying the experience. But just like she expects to see, as she has heard, similar big smiles on the faces of children in Nicaragua, she also knows that upon returning home from the summer camp, she has had a renewed appreciation for hot showers and other daily amenities not found at the camp. She feels that she will be returning from Nicaragua next March with a similar outlook about the ben-

Keely Noiles efits of life in Canada. Keely has been both a participant and a leader in The Well, a student faith experience which happens at Sacred Heart. She hopes to participate again next year and then be a leader in her grade 12 year. She has been nominated to be a peer helper which she expects to do at the school next year and which she hopes leads to her becoming involved in the peer mentor

program which matches up a mentor with just one student. Peer helpers make presentations to whole classes. She has found that The Well experience has eliminated stress and has renewed her positive attitude while also resulting in new friendships. Indeed, she is a part of a Well group that is continuing to meet weekly at the school. Keely has discovered this same benefit from the leadership camps which she has attended including one at Sacred Heart last September and another just a few weeks ago when five students from Sacred Heart attended a leadership camp with students from other Ottawa Catholic School Board schools. Although she did not know the other Sacred Heart students that well before going, she came back from the leadership camp having developed great friendships with them. She also found this Boardwide leadership camp beneficial because students there shared information about activities at their schools. See SACRED, page 35

“Hairspray,” “Starships,” and “Circus,” as examples, all gave a tip about the storyline of the routine. Add all of this to 145 pairs of active feet – jumping, spinning, tapping their way around the stage – and you had a dance show that included lots of “wow factor” and much entertainment. The show include jazz, tap, hop hop and lyric routines, some choreographed by the students themselves or by

other students. South Carleton High School teachers Leslie Jaeggin and Stacey Hamilton teach the dance classes which range from grade 9 right through to grade 12.

Sacred Heart student Keely Noiles From SACRED, page 31

She says that she picked up a couple of ideas which may merit trying out at Sacred Heart next year. Keely helps out in the community, as she has volunteer at the two previous 9-Run-Run emergency services runs that have been staged in Stittsville in the fall and expects to help out at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one as well. She does a variety of duties at the event, anything from helping people warm up to cleaning up afterwards. She admits that it turns out to be a good long ten hour day but she readily admits that she enjoys doing it. Keely has a part-time job at Jo-Joâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pizza in Stittsville where she has worked since last August. She enjoys working there, praising it as a family oriented business where the owners take pride in their work. Keely has also played ringette for the past five years. A defenseman, she plays in the West Ottawa Wild house league program, admitting

that this allows for more time with family on the weekends than if she were involved in the competitive program. She likes ringette because it is a team sport whose very rules force a player to play with their teammates, ensuring that it is a team game. Keely is also active outdoors in both winter and summer. In the summertime, she spends a lot of time at a Mississippi Lake cottage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a fish,â&#x20AC;? she candidly says with regard to the time that she spends in and on the water, swimming, tubing and boarding. In the winter, she snowboards and skis. In school, Keely admits to liking mathematics. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a math nerd,â&#x20AC;? she says, saying that she did have thoughts that she might like to be a marine biologist in the future but now she is not sure. She has planned her courses so that she still has plenty of options regarding her future studies.

Senators at Oil Changers John Curry

EMC news - Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a while since we have been able to see the Ottawa Senators on the ice. But this Saturday, June 9 you will be able to see an Ottawa Senator or two, not on the ice but on the premises of Oil Changers on Carp Road in Stittsville. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because Ottawa Senator Chris Neil and possibly teammates Matt Carkner and Chris Phillips will be at Oil Changers to help celebrate its grand opening. So drop in and take the opportunity to

meet and chat with these Ottawa Senators. It may not the same as watching them in the Stanley Cup finals (wait till next season) but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great way to spent a little time on a Saturday. And bring along the kids as well. The presence of the Ottawa Senators will not be all thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening at Oil Changers on Carp Road this coming Saturday, June 9. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an all day long grand opening celebration from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Hot 89.9 will be doing a remote broadcast from the location all day long. There will

also be balloons galore and a guarantee of fun. Plans are in the works for a BBQ as well. Oil Changers which is located on Carp Road between Stittsville Main Street and Hazeldean Road in Stittsville, opened for business in April, offering not only oil changes but also tire rotations and e-tests. It also has car wash bays. Oil and filter changes normally take nine minutes or less, with no appointments required. Oil Changers in Stittsville can be contacted at 613836-2229.

Councillor for Hire has put me in some fairly interesting jobs since I began last year. However, none of those jobs came with the unique nature of my May 29th experience at the Robert O. Pickard Environmental Centre. ROPEC is the first job in which I haven’t actually worked within Rideau-Goulbourn. The reason why I accepted the offer, however, is because a little piece of all of us ends up at ROPEC one way or another. ROPEC is the City of Ottawa’s wastewater treatment plant, located on 150 acres of land in the City’s east end. Built in 1962, the plant treats domestic, commercial, and industrial waste and returns the treated water back into the Ottawa River. I’ve been at the Britannia Purification Plant before as well and I can tell you that the water that we return to the river is cleaner than the water we take out. My job was to work under the manager of Biosolids & Sewer Use Compliance. I spent the morning with Matt, who is a Compliance Officer, and we conducted audit sampling on sewer discharges from three sites across the City; Drain-All, Veolia, and another site at the Ottawa Airport. All tests checked out and we headed back to ROPEC to submit the samples to the lab. The afternoon session was spent with Field Technician, Meredith. This is where things get a little messy as we had the enviable task of taking samples off of Septic Haulers. The point of this is to test the contents of the trucks as they deposit their waste at ROPEC to make sure the contents can be treated properly. There was a minor instance during this sampling where I got splashed in the face, but thanks to some sanitary wipes on hand; all was good in the end. As a rural resident on well and septic, I’m sure some of us take for granted that our septic tank just get pumped and the truck drives away. I find it quite interesting that the majority of this septic waste ends up at the same facility that urban and suburban sewer waste goes to. In fact, ROPEC takes septic waste from regions outside of the City of Ottawa as well, but you’ll be happy to know they pay more to bring it here. In the end, my experience at ROPEC was interesting and valuable and I’m happy they thought to invite me there; I just think they were surprised I accepted. ROPEC also opens its doors annually as part of the Doors Open Ottawa event, which takes place the first weekend of June. I’d encourage you to visit, it’s amazing what happens to this stuff after you flush your toilet. Jabulani Winery Opening Day On a more tasteful note, another season is upon us at Jabulani Vineyard & Winery. Join me on Saturday, June 9th as we mark the official 2012 opening at 11am. If you’ve never been, this is a beautiful property located on Jock Trail Road, just west of Richmond and south of Munster. Later this month, Jabulani will also serve as my next Councillor for Hire job. War of 1812 Bicentennial Celebration And now a message from the Goulbourn Museum: Join us for our War of 1812 Bicentennial Celebration! Help us to commemorate the War and our community’s direct connection. Bring your family & friends and enjoy military re-enactors, games, exhibitions, presentations, sales and much more. This Bicentennial Celebration will take place both indoors and outdoors on the Museum grounds on Sunday, June 17th from 10am-5pm at 2064 Huntley Road. Munster’s Annual Slo-Pitch Tournament This weekend in Munster is the 4th Annual Slo-Pitch Tournament benefitting the Munster Cooperative Nursery School. As part of the ball tournament, there will also be the amazing MCNS Kids Zone featuring a tattoo parlour, LEGO table, treasure hunt, balloon animals, and much more!

Two life memberships presented Special to the News

EMC news - Two life memberships were presented at the annual Honours & Awards Appreciation Night at the Stittsville Branch 618 of the Royal Canadian Legion last Saturday, June 2. Receiving the life memberships were past president Dave Cashman and longtime publicity officer Barbara Vant’Slot. Dave Cashman has held numerous executive positions over the years including president from 2007 to 2010. He has served on the Branch’s executive in various positions since 2005. He was involved in the Legion’s renovations in the downstairs bathrooms and replacement of the main hall floor, the downstairs bar floor and the outdoor patios. Barbara Vant’Slot, who was Legionnaire of the Year in 2009, has been an executive committee member at the Branch since 2006. She writes the Branch’s weekly newspaper column and has been involved in every poppy campaign for the past ten years, calling every member to arrange for work on the poppy campaign. She is also a member of the Ladies’ Auxiliary, serving as the sergeant-at-arms for the past ten years. Another highlight of the Honours & Awards Appreciation Night was the presentation of the Legionnaire of the Year award to Norman Fortin. He was just re-

cently elected as the Branch’s president as well. The Honours & Awards Appreciation Night also included the presentation of a number of medals, bar and badges for service, either on the executive or just for long service as a member.

Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories Mother often wondered if we got a bargain when Father traded many loads of gravel for the old Model T, our first car. The deal was made with a neighbour who needed gravel for a washed culvert: we had the gravel pit and he had the car. Not a penny changed hands. Just a handshake in the back yard on a spring day in the 1930s, the way most deals were done back then. We children were thrilled beyond belief. Imagine: a car, our first. It certainly wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much to look at. In an attempt to fix up a battered front fender, the first owner had painted it green. Of course, the rest of the car was black. Mother thought the paint was from leftovers from painting a pump or old lawn furniture, which seemed to be the colour everyone used back then. Father said the odd fender gave the car a nice touch. When we got the car, one back door was missing. The farmer said it was somewhere in a ditch along the Northcote Side Road and he was pretty sure we could find it on one of our trips into Renfrew. He said it flew off one day when he hit a rut. Sure enough, Earl spotted it hidden in the long grass just after Briscoeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s farm about three kilometres up the road. Father tied it on with binder twine, which meant it could never be opened. It stayed forever tied to the frame of the old Model T. The brothers just climbed in over the top of it. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a big car and it was a never-ending challenge for us five kids, Mother and Father to all get in. It meant that someone had to sit in the front seat between Mother and Father and the rest of us had to pile into the back, with one of us crouched down on the floor. You would think none of us wanted this floor spot, but to me it was the best place in the entire Model T. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because there was a hole in the floor as big as a saucer and you could sit there and watch the road go by. In fact, we often fought over the spot. So Mother, in her usual organized manner, drew up a chart and whose turn it was depended entirely on Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s list. Apart from making it easier to get into the car, the running board served the purpose of carrying an overload. It seemed to me we never went anywhere without boxes, chickens in crates and an extra gas tank tied to the running board. Although the old Model T was supposed to make our lives

easier on the farm, it had several drawbacks which became the bane of Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s existence. Getting it started was one of them. It had to be cranked. The crank was kept under the driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seat ... well, it was supposed to be there, but one time we neglected to take it out of the spot where it was used to start the car, and we lost it on the Northcote Side Road, just like the missing door. It too was discovered on the way home from wherever we were going that day. I lived in constant dread that one day Father was going to lose an arm cranking the car. More often than not, the car balked when he was cranking it and his arm would fly towards the sky with such a force that it is a wonder it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wrenched from its socket. Someone had to sit behind the steering wheel while this was going on, to work the gas lever or the choke, whichever Father ordered from the front of the car. And once the motor caught, that person, usually my brother Everett, would fly out of the car, crawl over the tied-on door, and be ready to take off with the rest of us. Flat tires were expected every time we left the lane and hit the Northcote Side Road. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t unusual to have three or four during the 20 kilometre trip into Renfrew. Father always carried a little kit with him and was always able to fix the tire in jig time and have us back on the road before you could blink an eye. One time, we actually lost an entire wheel. The car came to an abrupt halt as the shaft holding the wheel dug into the dirt road. The three brothers exited the car the same way they got in, over the door,and hoisted the car, with Mother, Audrey and I still in it. Father slammed the wheel back on, screwed the bolts tight, and we were again on our way. The Model T was certainly a step up from the horse and buggy. Mother doubted it got us into Renfrew any faster, though. With the expected flat tires and various other problems we always seemed to encounter with the car, even going flat out, Emerson figured we were only going about 40 kilometres per hour. But to us five kids, the car was like a status symbol. Other neighbours had newer cars, but our first car, to us, meant that we had moved out of the horse and buggy age and into a modern world. Even though Mother often questioned if we got a bargain by trading many loads of gravel for the car, there was no doubt in the minds of five youngsters out in Renfrew County, that we got the best of the deal â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all through a simple shake of a hand.

Crab Cakes can serve as appetizer or main course



$&)*()%%&,* , %* #0(&*+(%


Food â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Stuff

In a non-stick medium frying pan, heat the first amount of oil. In this, cook the celery and onion just until

the onion is transparent. Remove the pan from the heat, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wash it. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll use it again to cook the crab cakes. In a medium bowl, combine the cooked celery and onion with the mayonnaise, seasonings and crab. Stir in 1/3 cup plus 1 tbsp. of the cracker crumbs. Mix just enough to combine the ingredients. The crab mixture is moist and messy, so wear latex gloves for the next step. Spread the remaining 1/3 cup of cracker crumbs on a large plate. Using a 1/4 or 1/3 cup measure, scoop out enough mixture for each crab cake. Shape the crab mixture into 10 small cakes for appetizers, or into six cakes five to 7.5 centimetres in diametre for a main course. The crab cakes should be just under 2.5 centimetres thick. Cover both sides of the crab cakes with the crumbs, and set them aside. In the same frying pan that you used for the celery and onion, heat the 1 1/2 tbsp. oil over medium-low heat. Use a spatula to transfer the crab cakes to the pan so that they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fall apart The larger ones particularly have a tendency to do this. Cook on medium-low until the bottom of the crab cakes is golden brown. Turn them over, and continue cooking until the second side is nicely browned. Watch that they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t burn. This makes 10 appetizer servings, or six main-course servings, enough for two to three people.

The annual Canada Day Seniors Breakfast hosted by city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri will be held on Canada Day, Sunday, July 1 from 8 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. at the fire hall on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville. Seniors wishing to attend should contact councillor Qadriâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office at 613-580-2476 or at as soon as possible to reserve a spot.

These crab cakes are delicious and can be served either as an appetizer or a main course. Although the ingredients are very basic, they taste quite rich. If you plan to serve them as a main course, keep the rest of the meal simple. In working out this recipe, I discovered the best crackers to use are those called Club crackers, Toppables or butter crackers. The name varies with the brand. This type of cracker adds more flavour than plain soda crackers and because they are not highly seasoned, their own taste doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t over power the other ingredients. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need about 15 crackers, finely crushed, for the recipe. Crab Cakes 1 tbsp. olive oil or vegetable oil 1/4 cup celery, finely diced 3 slices onion, finely diced 1/3 cup mayonnaise (I used low-fat mayonnaise and it was fine) 1/8 tsp. dry mustard 1/4 tsp. paprika a tiny sprinkle of garlic powder 120 gram can of crabmeat, drained and rinsed 2/3 cup plus 1 tbsp. of finely crushed cracker crumbs such as Club or Toppable crackers 1 1/2 tbsp. olive or vegetable oil for cooking the crab cakes

Crime staying stagnant Laura Mueller

Conducted by the Ottawa Police Service, the survey showed that 47 per cent of Ottawa residents believe crime levels have broadly stayed the same in the past three years. The finding was one of

vey was the same no matter if people are thinking about their own neighbourhood or the entire city: speeding cars and aggressive driving. Sixty-four per cent of respondents said thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that top issue of concern in their neighbourhood, while 76 per cent itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the most pressing issue for police citywide. That has been the top concern for people within their own neighbourhoods in the last three surveys, but in previous years, residents were more worried about drugs (80 per cent in 2008) and youth crime (79 per cent in 2006) when it came to the city as a whole. Drugs are still considered a major citywide issue, with 74 per cent of respondents citing drugs as their top concern. Of interest, people who responded to the survey were more concerned about crimes


in the city as a whole than about crimes in their own neighbourhoods. Most people â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 57 per cent â&#x20AC;&#x201C; felt crime had stayed the same in their neighbourhood, 22 per cent thought it increased in their neighbourhood and while 20 per cent felt it had decreased. For the portion of the survey in which people could put their own suggestions, the most frequent ideas related to boosting visibility of police officers, improving enforcement of traffic violations and increasing interactions with local people. The survey also showed that the proportion of respondents who believe crime is increasing was at its lowest ever: 33 per cent. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s down from 54 per cent of residents who thought crime was increasing in 2006. While almost 100 per cent

of people reported feeling safe in their homes and neighbourhoods during the day, that number dropped to 81 per cent for those who feel safe during the day downtown, with only 35 per cent saying they would feel safe downtown at night. Bike paths and trails are also considered unsafe at night; only 20 per cent of people say they would feel safe at night, and 73 per cent would feel safe on pathways during the day. Public transit numbers were lower: 68 per cent would feel safe during the day and 26 per cent at night. Seventeen per cent of people who took the survey said they had been victims of crime in the past three years. More than half â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 55 per cent â&#x20AC;&#x201C; of them said they were satisfied or very satisfied with the police response, while 20 per cent were dissatisfied. Satisfaction with the local police service is rated as â&#x20AC;&#x153;very high,â&#x20AC;? with 81 per cent of respondents indicating they are satisfied and only four per cent responding that they are dissatisfied. Sixty per cent of residents who responded said they have â&#x20AC;&#x153;high or utmostâ&#x20AC;? confidence in the Ottawa Police Service, and 33 per cent have â&#x20AC;&#x153;moderate confidence.â&#x20AC;? The survey is the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sixth since 1995. This year, a total of 3,147 citizens participated in the online survey between Feb. 10 and April 8, representing a response rate of 20.4 per cent (15,464 mailed notifications were sent out).

EMC news - Stittsvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population is expected to grow by 20,000 by the year 2021. This would make Stittsvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s total population in the 47,000 range. In 2006, Stittsvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population was 19,000, with 6,200 dwelling units in the community. In the year 2011, Stittsvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population had grown to 26,730, with 9,000 dwelling units in the community. This growth is expected to continue, particularly with the Fernbank lands and Kanata West areas continuing to develop. Whereas Stittsville had a population of 19,000 and 6,200 dwelling units in 2006, Kanata had a population of 67,000 with 22,000 dwelling units. A major difference, other than actual population size, is that in 2006 Stittsville had over 81 percent of single family and semi-detached homes whereas Kanata had 61 percent single family homes and semi-detached homes. Kanata had more townhomes and apartments than Stittsville.

172 conditions for subdivision John Curry

EMC news - A total of 172 conditions accompany the draft plan approval for a proposed subdivision by the Regional Group of Ottawa on a site in the Fernbank lands between Fernbank Road and the Trans Canada Trail. The proposed subdivision involves 515 lots for single family dwellings, 10 blocks for multiple attached or stacked dwellings, a park, two school sites, a paramedic station, a transit park and ride and various streets and walkways.

The conditions range from installing community mailboxes to Canada Post standards to not destroying any Bobolink habitat until a permit is received from the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources to constructing two lanes of the future north-south arterial road which runs along the west side of the site from the Trans Canada Trail to Fernbank Road to constructing a three metre wide off-road multi-use asphalt path on the north side of Fernbank Road adjacent to the site to installing sidewalks along various streets to installing chain link fencing at two

identified locations to placing Community Gateway Features at certain locations to undertaking an archaeological assessment of the site to installing required stormwater works for the subdivision to installing all necessary water mains required for the development. And thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lots more â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 172 in total. The developer has until Feb. 24, 2015 to satisfy these conditions and register the plan of subdivision. If this does not happen, the draft plan approval will lapse, although the city of Ottawa may grant an extension.

Community Design Plan? John Curry

EMC news - A Community Design Plan for Stittsville Main Street was proposed by city of Ottawa planning staff at the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stittsville of Tomorrow â&#x20AC;&#x201C; From a Sururban to Urban Villageâ&#x20AC;? meeting hosted by city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor shad Qadri on Tuesday evening, May 29 at the theatre at Sacred Heart High School in Stittsville. Goals of such a Stittsville Main Street Community Design Plan (CDP) would be to provide clarity as to how the Official Planâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mainstreet policies related to Stittsville Main Street; to amend the zoning for properties along Stittsville Main Street where required to

implement Official Plan direction to guide growth; and to develop policies that promote high-end urban design for new development along the street. A reason for having such a CDP for Stittsville Main Street would be to ensure that growth along the street takes a form that is compatible with its surroundings. A CDP also provides a community with greater certainty that future development along a street like Stittsville Main Street reflects the wishes of the community as expressed in the CDP. Design guidelines would be used to help achieve this. The CDP would apply to the stretch of Stittsville Main Street from the Carp Road

south to Bell Street. City of Ottawa Alta Vista ward councillor Peter Hume, who is chair of city councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planning committee, in his comments at the meeting, said that Community Design Plans are one way that the city is trying to implement planning strategies that are more tangible for people and add cer-

tainty to the planning process both for developers and for communities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re committed to living up to Community Design Plans,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding that once a CDP for Stittsville Main Street was developed by the landowners involved and the community, then the city will live up to zonings that are put in place. He promises that there would be no spot rezonings after the CDP is completed.

Projected populations of growth areas Special to the News

EMC news - The Fernbank lands stretching from Fernbank Road in the south to Hazeldean Road in the north and from Shea Road in the west to Terry Fox Drive in the east, is projected to have an ultimate population of somewhere from 28,000 to 31,000 people, living in anywhere from 9,700 to 11,000 dwelling units. The Kanata West area north of Hazeldean Road between Johnwoods Street in the west and the Carp River in the east will have an ultimate population of 12,000 to 15,000 people, living in 5,000 dwelling units. It is to be a major employment area as well.

June 16th garage sale to help Kenyan partnership Special to the News

EMC news - They are thousands of kilometers apart, on different continents. But the Community Bible Church right here in Stittsville and the community of Seje in Kenya have a partnership going that is improving lives there and is allowing those here to share Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bounty with those half a world away. Born in April 2011, this partnership is improving educational opportunities and supporting young orphans. It will soon be improving agricultural production in Seje and will be bringing more clean drinking water to the Seje community. Already the Community Bible Church has had several events to help raise awareness of and funds to support this partnership. And another one is coming up. A garage sale (indoors if it rains) will be held on Saturday, June 16 at the Community Bible Church. Fair trade coffee and home baked muffins will also be available for purchase. The funds raised by this garage sale event will go to purchase the raw materials that will be used for items to be sold at the churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Sow Good Saleâ&#x20AC;? that will be happening in November. The funds from this â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Sow Good Saleâ&#x20AC;? will go towards agricultural projects in Seje. Land will be bought by the community and made tillable by villagers. Then crops will be grown on the land, benefitting the entire community. This June 16th garage sale will be followed by the Community Bible Churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first â&#x20AC;&#x153;Walker For Waterâ&#x20AC;? event on Saturday, June 23 starting at 9 a.m. This â&#x20AC;&#x153;Walk For Waterâ&#x20AC;? will mimic the trek that the villagers of Seje must undertake daily to detch water. The fundraising goal for this â&#x20AC;&#x153;Walk For Waterâ&#x20AC;? is $15,000 which will go towards supply clean drinking water to 500 people thanks to expansion of a new pumping station in Seje. There will also be a cash BBQ run in conjunction with this â&#x20AC;&#x153;Walk For Water.â&#x20AC;? Please visit for more information and to sponsor and/or register to participate in this event. It was back in 2010 that the Community Bible Church heard about the â&#x20AC;&#x153;You Feed Themâ&#x20AC;? initiative undertaken by Osgoodeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Trinity

Bible Church. This saw the Osgoode church partner with the village of Yogo on the western edge of Kenya near Uganda to help improve crop yields, among other things. This venture proved so successful that the people of Yogo now have been able to offer food to nearby communities in times of drought. The Community Bible Church was inspired by this Canadian-Kenyan partnership and had the opportunity to partner with Seje, a village near Yogo. Pastor Steve Stewart and several members of the congregation met with the Seje community elders and villagers to discuss their needs, desires and dreams. As a result, the partnership between Seje and the Community Bible Church was started in April 2011. The project is a long term one in which the Community Bible Church is working with the Seje community leaders to help transform Seje into a self-sustaining community. The Seje community leaders have been raising funds to purchase land for a local school and other community facilities. With the down payment on the land in place, villagers have wasted no time in getting to work clearing the land to allow for

building to occur. The Community Bible Church, for its part, held its first â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Sow Good Saleâ&#x20AC;? in November 2011. Funds raised have allowed a school structure to be fully funded and construction has begun. Support from the Community Bible Church has meant that more than 50 four and five years olds, primarily orphans, have been sponsored and since January have been attending school which takes place in a church until the new school building is ready. The sponsored children are also benefitting from regular nutrition. A child can be sponsored for $40 a month, providing them with opportunities which they otherwise would never have. Additional funds for educational support in Seje were raised at the Community Bible Churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Quiz for a Causeâ&#x20AC;? last March. The Community Bible Church is located at 1600 Stittsville Main Street, across from the Stittsville Home furniture store. It can be contacted at 613-836-2606 or at

History â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;aliveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; at Drop-In Saturday, June 16th

EMC news - The Goulbourn Township Historical Society promotes the history of the area. And who better to lead this effort than two of the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most historic figures, the Duke of Richmond after who Richmond is named and Maria Hill who operated the Masonic Arms Tavern in Richmond. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why both the Duke of Richmond and Maria Hill will be making special guest appearances at the Community Bible Churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wise Guys and Gals Drop-Inâ&#x20AC;? on Monday, June 11 as the Historical Society makes a presentation at the event. Of course, both the Duke and Maria are played by re-enactors since both died in the 19th century but they will be bringing a special vigour to the presentation. In other words, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a lot of fun and very informative â&#x20AC;&#x201C; history delivered in an entertaining way. The Duke will be portrayed by Robin Derrick, a former Historical Society president who has been appearing as the Duke of Richmond for a number of years now. He will be telling

all about the Duke from the Dukeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own perspective. Maria Hill will be portrayed by Barbara Bottriell, the current president of the Historical Society and a knowledgeable historian in her own right. Her book â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stittsville: A Sense of Placeâ&#x20AC;? is recognized as the most definitive history of Stittsville. All seniors in the area are welcome to attend this or any monthly â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wise Guys and Gals Drop-Inâ&#x20AC;? taking place at the Community Bible Church. It is free and those attending will enjoy coffee and home baked sweets as well as hear an interesting speaker or speakers. This â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wise Guys and Gals Drop-Inâ&#x20AC;? featuring the Duke of Richmond and Maria Hill with a presentation on the Goulbourn Township Historical Society will be held on Monday, June 11 from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Community Bible Church at 1600 Stittsville Main Street beside the Stittsville post office. For more information about this June 11th â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wise Guys and Gals Drop-In,â&#x20AC;? please check out the web at or call 613-836-2606.
