EMC news - The Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission for Ontario has heard the views of the Stittsville Village Association (SVA) on the proposed new federal riding in which Stittsville would be located. These SVA views were conveyed to the Commission at its public hearing about the proposed new riding boundaries in Ontario in Ottawa last Monday, with Phil Sweetnam, vice-president of the SVA, serving as its voice. He told the Commission that in the view of the SVA, the Stittsville community is essentially in agreement with the formation of the new riding which would comprise the southern parts of the city of Ottawa from its eastern boundary to its western boundary and which would include Stittsville. Mr. Sweetnam did point out that there should be a tweaking of the boundary of the new riding between Stittsville and the proposed Carleton-Kanata riding. The Commission, in its proposal, uses Terry Fox Drive as the boundary from highway 417 southward. This would cut off the residential area behind the Sobeys store at the corner of Terry Fox Drive and Hazeldean Road from the rest of Kanata, placing it in the new riding encompassing Stittsville, Richmond, Goulbourn, Manotick, Riverside South and rural areas in the southern part of the city of Ottawa. Mr. Sweetnam suggested that the Carp River, currently the municipal ward boundary between the Stittsville ward and the Kanata South ward, be used instead as the boundary of the new riding, extending from highway 417 south to where the Carp River crosses Terry Fox Drive south of Hazeldean Road. Mr. Sweetnam also made a pitch for the name of the new riding to include the name of Stittsville. He pointed out that Stittsville will be the largest community in the new riding, comprising about 30 percent of its population and growing to 38 percent of its population by the year 2021. He noted that Stittsville is an historic name in existence since before Confederation. Mr. Sweetnam also suggested that the name of the new riding should include the name Ottawa rather than the historic name of Carleton which has been used to identify federal ridings in the area. He said that it is time to leave this older name of Carleton and instead use the name Ottawa which reflects the area’s current location in the city of Ottawa. A total of 15 new federal ridings are being proposed by the Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission for Ontario since the province’s increase in the 2011 census saw an increase in population to justify adding these 15 new ridings. The Commission is mandated to establish electoral districts across the province as close to an average population as possible. This new riding in which Stittsville would be located would have an initial population of 91,550. It would include not only all of Stittsville including the Fernbank lands and the Fairwinds community but also Richmond, Goulbourn, Manotick, Riverside South, Leitrim and rural areas along the southern part of the city of Ottawa.
There’s nothing like ice cream, not matter what time of year or what kind of occasion. It’s always good, as undoubtedly Alaina Leben, left, and Skye Leben, right, would attest as they enjoy their ice cream cones at the party marking the fourth birthday of the Ottawa West Arts Association (owaa) gallery at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex on Shea Road in Stittsville last Saturday, Nov. 3.

It’s great fun planning and preparing the float and then it is so rewarding to travel along the parade route with the float, hearing the appreciative comments of all of the onlookers.

Wartime display John Curry
Longtime Stittsville Legion member and veteran Clive Morris, left, and Christine Philipson, chair of the Stittsville Legion’s poppy campaign, examine a military hat as they look at the exhibit featuring World War One and World War Two memorabilia that is now on view at the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library.
EMC news - A selection of wartime memorabilia is on display at the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library courtesy of the Goulbourn Museum. The exhibit is set up on shelving just past the circulation desk. Besides a variety of items from both the First and Second World Wars, the display also features a binder containing information about those from Goulbourn township who served in World War One and World War Two. There is also a binder containing a selection of the First World War correspondence between Private Sefton Stewart of Richmond, a member of the 77th Battalion of the Canadian Expeditionary Force, and his family back in Richmond. Among the wartime items on display are a Second World War army helmet, a First World War non-combat hat, a First World War mili-
tary wallet containing photos of its owner, Second World War playing cards in their “Players Please” packages, a service writing kit, a First World War general service button, A First World War hat badge, a First World War grooming kit, a German bayonet and the lining of a German bomber flying jacket. The exhibit also includes a photo of Colonel George Ross, a postmaster at a field post office in France in World War One, showing a tent and five soldiers, and also a photograph of soldiers enjoying a mail call in France in World War One. Goulbourn township has a long association with the military, going back to its first settlers, many of whom were disbanded soldiers of the 99th Regiment of Foot and veterans of the War of 1812. Goulbourn has had residents who have experienced military service for the Fenian Raids of the 1860’s and the Boer War as well as for World War One and World War Two, the Korean War, peacekeeping and recent conflict areas like Afghanistan.
Calling all floats Continued from page 1
The parade proceeds south through the Stittsville Main Street/Carp Road intersection and along Stittsville Main Street. At the Abbott Street intersection at Village Square Park, there is a public address commentator who identifies the various floats as they pass by. The parade continues on along Stittsville Main Street to Carleton Cathcart Street where St. Thomas Anglican Church is located and where the parade ends. After the parade, there will be a brief ceremony at Village Square Park at the corner of Stittsville Main Street and Abbott Street at which the Christmas lights on the trees at Village Square Park are officially turned on for the Christmas season. The Stittsville volunteer firefighters are taking care of all of the arrangements with regard to Santa Claus and his appearance in this year’s Parade of Lights.

EMC news - E-readers and other electronic devices may be eating into the reading of old fashioned books but books are still popular. The evidence is right there in the great success of the recent fourth annual used book sale held by Main Street Community Services at the Lions Club Hall on Stittsville Main Street on the weekend of Oct. 19-21. The ďŹ nal tally shows that a total of $3,050 was raised by the sale, so there were lots of books that went out to the door with their new owners. The Lions Club Hall was ďŹ lled with books for the sale â€“ childrenâ€™s books, teen ďŹ ction, adult ďŹ ction, mystery, science ďŹ ction, classics, short stories, poetry, self help, diet, ďŹ tness, medicine, health, politics, history, religion, Canadiana, pets, biographies and more. There was something for everyone. The Friday evening and Saturday at lunch both featured a BBQ with hot dogs, hamburgers, chops and drinks. This proved popular as did the ongoing bake sale and a rafďŹ‚e draw. These all helped contribute to the monies raised by the event. The used book sale was also successful thanks to the great support given to the event by numerous individuals as well as by the Stittsville District Lions Club, Kim Clausen and Laurie Newman of the A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary Schoolâ€™s Parent Council, Kim Closs of CTV, Hosie & Brown Auto Electric, Neil Campbell of Giant Tiger in Stittsville, Brownâ€™s Your Independent Grocer and M&M Meats of Bells Corners. This used book sale is a major fundraising initiative for Main Street Community Services in Stittsville which provides services for children and youth with special needs and their families. A not-for-proďŹ t registered charity, it depends heavily on fundraising to carry on its programs and services. Main Street Community Services operates out of premises on the second storey of the Frederick Banting Alternate Program (former Stittsville Public School) on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville.

Students Win Youth Futures Bursaries
Hydro Ottawa presented bursaries of $500 each to two deserving youths at the 10th Anniversary Breakfast of the Ottawa Community Housing Corporation on October 26. The Youth Futures bursaries help youth living in low-income communities to attend post-secondary education and pay for books and tuition. “As a dedicated community citizen with roots that stretch back more than 130 years, Hydro Ottawa strongly believes in investing in our city and the development of its people,” said Bryce Conrad, President and CEO of Hydro Ottawa, who attended the breakfast. “I am honoured to make this contribution to the futures of two young people with lots of promise.” The Youth Futures bursaries sponsored by Hydro Ottawa were awarded to Faduma Hassan and Ahmad Hussein, two community volunteers who are ﬁrst-generation post-secondary students. “I’d like to thank Hydro Ottawa for this opportunity. I come from a low-income family and this helps me reach my goals,” said Ahmad Hussein, a Grade 12 student at the Ottawa Islamic School who plans to pursue nanoscience at Carleton University. Faduma Hassan said she was “shocked and very happy” when she learned that she won the bursary. The Grade 12 student hopes to help others through her future career in science. Honourary Co-Chairs Mayor Jim Watson and Deputy Mayor Steve Desroches, who is also Chair of Ottawa Community Housing Corporation, were on hand to join in the celebration. “We would like to thank Hydro Ottawa for their generous community spirit,” said Jo-Anne Poirier, Chief Executive Ofﬁcer of the Ottawa Community Housing Corporation. “The bursaries they have funded will make a difference in the lives of these two recipients.” Funding these Youth Futures bursaries is just one way Hydro Ottawa is contributing to the well-being of our community. Hydro Ottawa is a community builder, maintaining one of the safest, most reliable electricity distribution systems in Ontario. The company is also dedicated to helping customers use electricity efﬁciently and teaching children and youth about electricity safety and conservation.

Sacred Heartâ€™s Graham LaRose improves marks John Curry
EMC news - Sacred Heart Catholic High School grade 12 student Graham LaRose readily admits that he has pulled up his socks in his studies this year. Up until this year, he has been going along with a 70 percent or so average. But going into his graduating year, he realized that if he wanted to be able to pursue the future studies that he wanted, particularly in journalism, he had to pull up his socks. And this is just what he has done as he now has an over 80 percent average in his academic work. â€œPretty drastic,â€? he admits but also notes that it has been satisfying putting the work in and improving.
The 17 year old is interested in politics and current affairs and he sees journalism as a good way of maintaining these interests in the world of work. â€œI think it would be a real career to go out and report on things Iâ€™m really interested in,â€? Graham says, expressing a hope that he will be able to study journalism at Carleton University, although he admits that he may have to study journalism at Algonquin College first in order to gain admittance into the Carleton program with its high standards for admission. Graham loves to read and write, but says that he likes to have the physical page in his hands when reading rather than an electronic version. He worries that there might be no more

printed newspapers in existence in the future but feels that there will always be those like him who prefer to read paper texts. He is inclined towards pursing newspaper journalism because he likes to write. Essay writing comes naturally to him, he says, revealing his penchant for writing. In his personal reading tastes, Graham likes fiction and particularly what he terms the old classics like â€œNineteen eight-fourâ€?, the 1949 novel by George Orwell, and â€œA Clockwork Orange,â€? the 1962 satire by Anthony Burgess. Graham sees the media as playing a role in how the popular culture of the day is perceived and in how later historians come to view it. The media is basically writing history for future generations, he says. But current affairs and the media are far from Grahamâ€™s only interests. He is interested in music, something which began when he took piano lessons for four years when he was younger. He now regrets that he did not continue with these piano lessons but this does not mean that his musical interests and development ceased. He has played bass guitar with a band that jammed and wrote songs. This year at Sacred Heart he is involved with the jazz band in which he is playing the tenor saxophone. â€œI love jazz music,â€? Graham says, adding that being in the jazz band allows him to continue to be involved with music. He was not able to work a music course into his studies this year, so the jazz band involvement lets him continue to have music in his life. And while Graham has journalism in his career goals, teaching is also another possibility, mainly because of the example of the teachers at Sacred Heart. He admits that a lot of teachers at Sacred Heart have had a great influence on him in his development as a person. He praises the Sacred Heart staff for always working hard and help-
Graham LaRose ing students improve. A teacher can influence a future generation, he says, noting that this would be a great way to spend his life. â€œTeachingâ€™s such a noble profession,â€? Graham says as he muses that teaching is something that he might want to do. Itâ€™s in the back of his mind at present. Graham currently works at the new Food Basics store in Stittsville where he has been since the store opened last August. He works in the produce department which he says is a challenging place with â€œnever a dull moment.â€? He praises his managers for being great to work for and says working there is a lot of fun. This is the first time that he has worked in a grocery store. He previously had a part-time job as a cook at the Broadway Bar and Grill in Stittsville. He also enjoyed being involved in the restaurant business, noting that it can be very busy at times.

Gracenote lets its voices do the talking John Curry
EMC news - “I love coffee, I love tea.” It was a little ditty that the Kanata-based sing-
ing group Gracenote began with at their performance in Stittsville last Friday evening, Nov. 2. And how appropriate indeed as the site of the performance was the Gaia Java
Coffee Company shop at the Stittsville Shopping Centre (Shoppers Drug Mart plaza). Once this opening tribute to their surroundings was done, the members of Gracenote
– singers Diane Coulterman, Stephanie Coward-Yaskiw, Allison Fagan and Lynn Lane, along with keyboarder accompanist Andy Duffy – launched, or, more appropriately, moved
Singing at the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop at the Stittsville Shopping Centre on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville last Friday evening, Nov. 2 are members of Gracenote, from left, Lynn Lane, Stephanie Coward-Yaskiw, Allison Fagan and Diane Coulterman. The singers were accompanied by Andy Duffy on the keyboard.
melodically into an ongoing stream of gospel, jazz and rhythm and blues tunes, all featuring their four-part harmony vocals punctuated with Andy Duffy’s keyboard musical magic. Sitting on black stools before a capacity crowd at Gaia Java Coffee, the four let their voices do their talking, as it were, ranging from soft sounds to upbeat tempos, sometimes featuring one voice, sometimes another but always in harmony, with emotion, with flair and with passion. No microphones were necessary; the Gracenote voices filled the air and the audience gulped the sounds in as they sipped their coffee, latte or other relaxing beverage. And so you heard tunes with a spiritual focus, telling of the Lord crucified on Calvary or of walking a road to Glory with the Lord or of being forever in the Saviour’s care, along with jazz infused tunes like “Let It Be Me” to easy listening offerings with phrases like “I still remember the day we met.” The first half of the program ended with a rousing rendition of “Choo Choo, Choo Choo Ch’boogie,” a number that you knew was going to be a little different as the four singers stood up from their stools for this one. With them snapping fingers in tune with the music all
through the song, you could readily feel and hear how that American musician Louis Jordan, who was known as “The King of the Jukebox,” made this a number one hit on the American rhythm and blues charts back in 1946. It is no wonder that Louis Jordan, who enjoyed his greatest fame from the 1930’s through the 1950’s, has been called the Father of Rhythm and Blues and a Grandfather of Rock ‘n Roll. Indeed, pioneering rock ‘n roll artists Bill Haley and His Comets even recorded “Choo Choo, Choo Choo Ch’boogie” as a tribute to Louis Jordan. Gracenote is comprised of a group of friends who want to witness and share their love of the Lord through the joyful gift of song. No matter what the style of music, they try to honour the Divine in music. Gracenote will be performing on Sunday, Dec. 9 at 3:30 p.m. at St. Philip Catholic Church in Richmond. This performance by Gracenote at the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop in Stittsville was another in the ongoing series of Friday evening musical performances at the shop. These are free to those who attend, although it is advised to arrive early for the 7 p.m. performances due to limited seating and the growing popularity of the performances.

Cityâ€™s economic growth strategy on wrong track
he mayorâ€™s latest bid to boost the local economy falls short in scope and runs the risk of at least being perceived as favouring certain businesses over others. During an event hosted last week by Mayor Jim Watson, a program called the Capital Investment Track was announced. Watson said the program would see the city provide assistance to business initiatives based on the potential to create at least
100 â€œquality â€“ well-paying â€“ private sector jobs.â€? Economic development staff would help shepherd these projects through the cityâ€™s regulatory and administrative regime, making them the systemâ€™s top priority. This program, while not an inherently bad idea â€“ itâ€™s aimed at attracting investment and creating jobs â€“ puts the city in the position where it is picking and choosing what sorts of investment comes to Ottawa. On top
of the 100-job threshold, applicants from the life sciences, photonics, wireless, clean technology, aerospace, defence, film and television production, digital media and tourism sectors would also be considered for the Capital Investment Track. While this might appear to apply to a significant number of opportunities, in fact these employers represent a small fraction of the overall economy. Businesses with 100 or more people on the payroll
represent only 2.5 per cent of all employers in Ontario. In addition, with the exception of the tourism industry, the list of favoured sectors represents only a small slice of the total number of employers in the province and the types of jobs created would favour those with specialized experience and education. This means the city is offering to cut red tape for a group of businesses, including larger, better-financed firms, that are less likely to
need help navigating city hall than a business that employs four people, for example. Such small businesses represent more than 55 per cent of all employers in the province, and are often financed through the personal savings of the business owner. If the city truly wanted to attract investment, it would focus its efforts on cutting red tape for all types of businesses. This would maximize the potential number of jobs that could be created in
the city and would ensure opportunities are generated for residents from all walks of life, not just the highly educated. The spirit of the Capital Investment Track program is in the right place: helping to grow and diversify the cityâ€™s economy, which will in turn provide jobs as the federal government scales back its civil servant workforce. But the program isnâ€™t playing fair when it comes to making Ottawa a more attractive destination for investment. Everyone should have an equal opportunity to set up or expand their shop in this city.
The calm before our storm paying more attention to the weather than they used to. They are encouraged in this by the news media, particularly all-news television, which have made the weather a large percentage of the news conversation even when there is no storm happening. Even a storm that hasnâ€™t happened yet is news. The storm might be coming, destruction is threatened. There is a weather watch, a weather warning, a red swirl on a map and it could, maybe, affect you. The news media have learned that the story about the impending storm can have great value, even if the storm itself never materializes. Thereâ€™s lots of excitement in talking about the damage and devastation that might occur, great visuals in putting reporters in storm gear in front of the cameras in places where the storm hasnâ€™t arrived yet and if the storm never arrives, well, it was exciting, wasnâ€™t it? The problem with this kind of coverage is that people get used to it, come to believe that any storm warnings are exaggerated. The media cry wolf. Who knows, it may be that some of the people who were victims of Sandy were outside because they didnâ€™t believe the storm could be as bad as the media said it would be. In the United States, the discussion about the storm quickly shifted to a discussion about the electoral politics of the storm, but not about climate change, which nobody wanted to talk about in an election year. Maybe now that the two storms, the real one and the political one, have died down, the discussion about climate change can begin again. Itâ€™s overdue. Many experts are saying that we are going to be seeing a lot more of this kind of weather. Many experts also say that our society can do something to reduce that likelihood by changing some aspects of our behaviour. How to bring that about will not be easy and will not be without sacrifice, but it is the kind of question that needs to be debated fully. Maybe that debate can start. In the meantime, we in the capital will go on being thankful for the weather we didnâ€™t have and waiting confidently for things to get worse.
CHARLES GORDON Funny Town
ere in the capital, weâ€™re shaking our heads over how lightly we were touched by hurricane Sandy and its lengthy aftermath. What did we get? A little rain, a bit of wind. And how much do you want to bet that weâ€™re all thinking: â€œThatâ€™s nice, but weâ€™re going to pay for it when winter comes.â€? Thatâ€™s the fatalistic Canadian way of looking at it. If the weather spares us one day, itâ€™s going to whack us the next. And just to add an extra dimension, an extra level of unease, remember how easy last winter was? Weâ€™re going to get it, for sure. When I was a youngish writer at the Citizen, we used to scoff at a succession of editors and publishers who insisted that the paper feature a weather story prominently almost every day. â€œHow could the weather be news?â€? we wondered. Weather was just, well, weather. Turns out we were wrong. Even in those days readers were interested in weather and today there is much more weather to be interested in and it is more than a question of whether Friday will be a good day to play golf. Weather touches us in a way that we donâ€™t always like. We used to think that severe weather was fun. Nothing like a good storm to watch through the window or maybe even run around outside in for a while. After the ice storm of 1998 and the big winds of 2011, not to mention a couple of rather small but rather scary earthquakes, we know that much of the fun has gone out of such events. Given this, itâ€™s no surprise that people are

Costumes, hot chocolate, turkey shoot at Stittsville Legion Special to the News
“Here comes the judge.” It was a song by Pigmeat Markham back in 1968 that was based on a comedy routine of his that mocked formal courtroom etiquette. Well, the phrase could also apply to the Halloween party at the Stittsville Legion Hall on Saturday, Oct. 27 when Ed and Bev Healey, judges for the costume contest, appeared at the event in costume themselves, dressed as “judges.” And the decision by these “judges” was that Thea Both was the first prize winner. The Legion Hall was busy on Saturday, Oct.
27, not only with the Halloween party at night but with an afternoon that saw “Smokey Rose” entertain with some great music. When thinking about the upcoming Christmas Parade of Lights along Stittsville Main Street on Saturday evening, Nov. 24, why not drop in at the Legion Hall while waiting for the parade to arrive. You will be able to keep warm and enjoy some hot chocolate until the parade arrives and then you will have a great spot to watch from the front of the Legion Hall. Don’t forget that the annual Turkey Shoot will take place on Saturday, Dec. 8 at the Legion Hall, with all dart players welcome to participate.
Bingo is played every Wednesday starting at 6:45 p.m. at the Legion Hall with everyone in the community welcome to attend. Euchre is played every Tuesday starting at 1:15 p.m. at the Legion Hall, with everyone welcome to play. Euchre is also played every Thursday starting at 7:30 p.m. in the downstairs lounge. These Thursday evening euchre parties will cease at the end of November.
Alice Saunders had the ladies’ high score at the euchre party at the Stittsville Legion Hall on Stittsville Main Street on Tuesday, Oct. 23, with Pat Doxsee placing second. Dave Argue had the men’s high score with Garnet Vaughn as the runner-up. Jackie Ralph had the most lone hands while Marisa Martin had the low score. Door prizes were won by Dorothy Jessiman and Bill Watson.

Speaker praises Royal Canadian Legion Special to the News
EMC news - Major-General David Millar is a great fan of the Royal Canadian Legion. The guest speaker at the Stittsville Legionâ€™s annual Remembrance banquet last Saturday evening praised the Royal Canadian Legion, saying that the Legion and the Canadian Forces share a motivation to serve and a desire to make communities better places for everyone. â€œThatâ€™s what binds us together,â€? he said in explaining the relationship between the Legion and the Canadian Forces. He said that the two organizations are similar in structure, organization and membership, with those in each organization having uniforms, wearing medals and having a hierarchy of command. â€œTo me the Legion is an extension of the Canadian Forces and indeed the Canadian Forces is an extension of the Legion,â€? Major-General Millar said in his remarks. And went on to praise the role that Legion branches play in their communities. â€œLegions truly are the nucleus of any community as they represent the best of the best,â€? he said. He noted that Legions like the one in Iqaluit in Nunavut are places where people go to socialize and are a meeting place where people go to make friends and to tell stories. â€œThey create a place called home away from home,â€? he said about Legion branches. He also acknowledged the role that the Royal Canadian Le-
gion plays in providing care for veterans, a role that goes back almost 100 years. Major-General Millar also noted the military memorabilia which was displayed on the walls of the Legion Hall for the banquet, noting as well the efforts of the Cadets in uniform who served the meal. Major-General David Millar enrolled in the Canadian Forces in 1980, becoming ďŹ rst a computer engineer and then qualifying as an aerospace engineer. He obtained a Masterâ€™s degree in International Security Studies at the Air War College in Montgomery, Alabama in 2002. He has had numerous operational tours with the CF-18 program including three postings in Cold Lake, Alberta. He has also served in Lahr, Germany, at National Defense Headquar-
cc O 3
nc a p u
ters and in Winnipeg. He served as the executive assistant to the Chief of Air Staff in 1998. Major-General Millar was deployed to the Persian Gulf in 1990 as a member of 409 Squadron during the ďŹ rst Gulf War. He is currently assigned to the Privy Council OfďŹ ce in the Foreign and Defense Policy Secretariat as Director of Operations. Major-General Millar recounted that as a young ofďŹ cer, he had worked with Christine Philipson, the Stittsville Legionâ€™s current poppy campaign chair. He praised her for her service not only to the Canadian Forces but also to the Royal Canadian Legion. During the banquet, members of the Stittsville Legionâ€™s band under the direction of Frank Martens played various musical tunes including military marches.

Denise Noonan wants her art to make people happy John Curry
EMC news - “Make Someone Happy” is a tune from the 1960 musical “Do Re Mi.” It was also a song done by Jimmy Durante in a 1965 album. And this phrase is an ideal one to describe the goal of artist Denise Noonan and her approach to her work, namely to make someone happy. “I only do happy art,” the Ottawa West Arts Association (owaa) member says, explaining that she tries to produce art that will make people happy when it is hanging in their homes. “I really like to do fun things and colourful,” she says. Her afﬁnity for colour stems from her long career operating her own ladies’ wear store where her appreciation for design and colour ﬁrst found expression. Denise started painting 15 years ago after a diving accident which restricted her sporting activity. She remembers hating the ﬁrst two art classes that she took but then things turned around and she was hooked, painting more and more. When she retired after selling her store after 28 years in business, she turned more and more to her painting. She usually works in acrylics but her painting “Reﬂections” on exhibit in the current exhibition at the owaa gallery at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex is an oil on canvas. In fact, it is her ﬁrst attempt at oil painting. The painting shows a train with its headlight reﬂected in a pond as it passes by.
Denise always has a painting or two or more on the go. Right now she has three paintings underway and it depends on her mood about whether she paints on a particular day or not. “I paint because I feel like doing it that day,” she says, adding that a painting session could last hours as she just gets in the mood and wants to keep painting and painting. Denise currently has her work exhibited in three galleries – the owaa gallery in Stittsville as well as galleries in North Carolina and Costa Rica. Although she has been painting for 15 years, she never exhibited her paintings for sale until two years ago. She then sold three at the Costa Rica gallery and has since added the North Carolina and owaa galleries to her outlets. She readily admits that she has no interest in doing landscapes. She instead likes to do works that will bring happy thoughts to the viewer, perhaps by bringing back memories from previous years. “Good art is something you can look at and relate to and love,” Denise says, noting that in her own life she has a painting of youngsters tobogganing that she acquired 35 years ago and which she still loves because it reminds her of her own youth. She says that there is a story behind all of her paintings, a story that she makes up in her head related to the painting. She doesn’t ﬁnd this difﬁcult as she points out that she used to make up stories all the time to tell her children. Having a story in her mind about what she is painting helps her keep
the work fun and cute and away from being too serious. She recently did a painting of a baby caught up in a ballerina’s tutu and admits that she laughed all the time that she was doing it. And now
others laugh when they look at it. This perfectly demonstrates why she enjoys her art – she enjoys the creative process, indeed getting a lot of pleasure by amazing herself with what she does, while also knowing
that the painting will make people happy. Samples of Denise Noonan’s work and more information about the artist can be found at www.deniselaﬂammenoonan.ca
Artist Denise Noonan points out a feature of her oil painting “Reflections” which is part of the new exhibition “Reflection” at the Ottawa West Arts Association (owaa) gallery at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex on Shea Road in Stittsville.

Antiques galore at new Stittsville Main Street shop John Curry
EMC news - Royal Doulton. Waterford. Wedgwood. Aynsley. Moorcroft. Beswick. Dresden. Royal Crown Derby. And the list of well-known names associated with antiques goes on and on as the shelves and display cases at the new Stittsville Antiques & Collectables shop are filled with glassware, figurines, crystal, dinnerware and more. But that’s not all that owner Gael Shannon, a Stittsville resident, has in her newly opened shop on the east side of Stittsville Main Street just south of Abbott Street and Village Square Park. She has an array of silver plate that is not only varied and extensive but has a sparkle and gleam to it that draws the eye. That’s because Gael knows the secret behind polishing silver, learned when she was young and she and her sister had to polish the family silver. “I’ve always been interested in silver,” she says in explaining the extensive display in her shop. And this includes numerous tableware silver place settings, all complete and all in their wood boxes. This, though, is not all that Stittsville Antiques & Collectables offers. A side room offers clothing, towels, linens, duvets, purses, silk scarves,
afghans, comforters – you name it and you may find it in this room. It’s all previously loved, picked up at estate sales, but it’s all in excellent, like-new condition and being sold at prices that are unbelievably low. Gael first got involved with antiques when she inherited a collection of Royal Doulton figurines. She decided to try to sell some of them and arranged for space at the former Stittsville Flea Market, achieving immediate success with her quality pieces as she sold six on her first Sunday there and never looked back. She continued to have an antiques booth at the Stittsville Flea Market until it closed, after which she moved to the Kondruss flea market on Carp Road where she still maintains a booth. Gael had the goal of setting up an antiques shop once she retired from her government employment. She is now retired and was making plans to open a shop in Carleton Place even though she had long thought that her present Stittsville Main Street premises would be ideal for an antique shop. And so, when she saw a “for rent” sign go up for these premises, she acted quickly and grabbed them. “It was like I was divinely led,” she says about the decision. She assembled a variety
of display cases and shelving and then increased her stock to fill them, gathering it up from estate sales and other avenues such as trips to the United States to purchase Waterford crystal. She has tried to focus on antique items that she knows from experience will sell as well as items that she personally really likes. If it’s a well known pattern or maker, you’ll more than likely find it in her new shop, ranging from crystal to cranberry glass to cups and saucers to figurines. She also has an assortment of paintings displayed around the shop that not only add to the shop’s décor but are turning out to be popular sellers. Stittsville Antiques & Collectables is open from Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The shop is closed on Mondays as this is the day when Gael takes a break and catches up on household chores and tracking down new stock for the shop. Stittsville Antiques & Collectables is holding a grand opening this Saturday, Nov.
10 at 12 noon when city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri will be on hand for the formal ceremony. Everyone is invited to drop in, either at noon or any-
time over the weekend or in the coming days and weeks. With Christmas coming, the shelves at Stittsville Antiques & Collectables are just filled with unique and precious an-
tique and collectable items that could become that special Christmas gift for that special person. Stittsville Antiques & Collectables can be contacted at 613-836-9468.
