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.

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 – children’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 raf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 School’s Parent Council, Kim Closs of CTV, Hosie & Brown Auto Electric, Neil Campbell of Giant Tiger in Stittsville, Brown’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 Heart’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. “Pretty drastic,� 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. “I think it would be a real career to go out and report on things I’m really interested in,� 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 “Nineteen eight-four�, the 1949 novel by George Orwell, and “A Clockwork Orange,� 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 Graham’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. “I love jazz music,� 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. “Teaching’s such a noble profession,� Graham says as he muses that teaching is something that he might want to do. It’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 “never a dull moment.� 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.

City’s economic growth strategy on wrong track


he mayor’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 “quality – well-paying – private sector jobs.� Economic development staff would help shepherd these projects through the city’s regulatory and administrative regime, making them the system’s top priority. This program, while not an inherently bad idea – it’s aimed at attracting investment and creating jobs – 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 city’s economy, which will in turn provide jobs as the federal government scales back its civil servant workforce. But the program isn’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 hasn’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. There’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 hasn’t arrived yet and if the storm never arrives, well, it was exciting, wasn’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 didn’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. It’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 didn’t have and waiting confidently for things to get worse.



ere in the capital, we’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 we’re all thinking: “That’s nice, but we’re going to pay for it when winter comes.� That’s the fatalistic Canadian way of looking at it. If the weather spares us one day, it’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? We’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. “How could the weather be news?� 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 don’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, it’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 Legion’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. “That’s what binds us together,� 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. “To me the Legion is an extension of the Canadian Forces and indeed the Canadian Forces is an extension of the Legion,� Major-General Millar said in his remarks. And went on to praise the role that Legion branches play in their communities. “Legions truly are the nucleus of any community as they represent the best of the best,� 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. “They create a place called home away from home,� 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 Master’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-

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 Legion’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 Legion’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


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.

Richmond Remembrance dinner John Curry

EMC news - The Air Force was flying high at the Legion Hall in Richmond last Saturday evening, Nov. 3. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not only because the guest speaker at the Richmond Legionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual Remembrance dinner was Air Force Col. Bill McLean, Commandant of the Canadian Forces Support Unit Ottawa but also because he gave a capsule history of the Royal Canadian Air Force from its beginnings as the Royal Flying Corps in World War One. And his thoughts on the significance of the Air Force shone through, as he noted that any World War Two battle of significance included the use of air power. And he backed up this observation by noting that even today, air power is always used to soften up the enemy before a military advance. Col. McLean related how the Royal Flying Corps of World War One, with aces such as Billy Bishop, became the Canadian Air Force from 1920 to 1924 and then became the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) in 1924. He told how Britain and Canada set up the British Commonwealth Air Training Program in Canada for World War Two, a program which earned Canada the nickname â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Aerodrome of Democracy.â&#x20AC;?

Col. McLean noted how Canadian airmen were involved in the Battle of Britain which, he admitted, was only one of many great battles of World War Two but was a battle that, if Britain had fallen, would have meant the end of the war then and there. He noted as well the creation of the Sixth Bomber Command during World War Two and how the RCAF was involved in many significant battles of the War which ended with Canada having the third largest air force in the world at the time. Col. McLean mentioned Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s air campaign in Kosovo and the air forceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work in Afghanistan where the Canadian Air Wing in Kandahar was established. He noted that the air forceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s troop transport capability meant that troops could be transported to and from war areas without having to go over the bomb littered roads of that country. Canada was one of the first nations to provide aid to Haiti after its hurricane damage in 2010, Col. McLean said. He also told how the RCAF provided security for the 2010 Winter Olympics and the recent G8 and G20 summits in Canada. He admitted that people may not have seen the aircraft at the time but added that this does not mean that the aircraft were not on duty and making the events secure. Col. McLean told of Can-

adaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s air power being used in the NATO mission in Libya. He said that the Air Force continues to replace its aircraft, with the Air Force having to integrate its new capabilities with its existing capabilities, adding that the RCAF of today is a worthy successor of those who have gone before. Col. McLean joined the Canadian Forces in 1989. He was posted to 18 Wing Edmonton as the Deputy Wing Personnel Administration Officer. In

1994, he joined the staff at Air Command Headquarters. In 1999, he became a Logistics Officer and was posted to 4 Wing Cold Lake. Promoted to Lieutenant-Colonel in 2002, he was then posted to Command and Staff College in 2003. This was followed by a posting to Comox where he commanded the Administration Branch. In 2007, he attended the Industrial College of the Armed Forces in Washington, D.C. He was deployed to Kabul, Afghanistan, where he served as Director of Staff to the International Security Assistance Force Headquarters

from May, 2009 to Feb. 2010. Col. McLean was appointed Director of Air Personnel Management in 2010 and is now Commandant of Canadian Forces Support Unit Ottawa. He holds a Bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in psychology from Simon Fraser University as well as a Masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in defense studies from the Royal Military College and a Masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in national defense resources from the Industrial College of the Armed Forces in Washington, D.C. Those at the head table at the Remembrance Dinner included Col. McLean and his wife Suzanne; Jane Louks and

her husband Tom; and Richmond Legion president Brian Goss and his wife Brenda. City of Ottawa RideauGoulbourn ward councillor Scott Moffatt was among the 75 people in attendance at the dinner. The Remembrance dinner concluded, as has become traditional, with a toast to the piper involving bagpiper Eric Booth and Legion member Gerry Gauthier. This came following Eric Boothâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playing of a selection of tunes on the bagpipes including such oldtime favourites as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s A Long Way To Tipperaryâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bicycle Built For Two.â&#x20AC;?

Oh, rats - Living with rare snydrome

EMC news - A book. Two pet rats. And a message. These were all front and centre at an assembly at A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary School in Stittsville on Monday, Oct. 29 as siblings Melanie and Tommy Glatzmayer talked about the book entitled “Melanie & Tommy have two pet rates and one syndrome” and told about Melanie’s rare syndrome called Cornelia de Lange Syndrome that has only 100 known cases in Canada. They were accompanied in their presentation by their two pet rats which are featured in the book. Researchers estimate that there are one in 10,000 people suffering from Cornelia de Lange Syndrome without it being diagnosed. Diagnosis is difficult because there is no testing for this condition, only clinical observations. Melanie went to three different hospitals over three years before finally coming to the attention of a genetic doctor at Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto who had seen such a case before and who referred Melanie to another doctor who had done a study on 400 individuals with the syndrome. While Melanie has faced 14 procedures and operations, she is currently free of having to undergo any major operations. However, she does have up to 80 medical appointments a year. She also undergoes one or two procedures a year like endoscopy, biopsies, dental work or ear tubes. Her health condition is probably best understood by the fact that she rarely gets through a full week at school.

Because of the syndrome, Melanie has many developmental delays such as hearing problems, vision problems, eating difficulties and speech delays. Tommy, when he was six years old (he is now nine years old), came home crying because Melanie, who is now 12 years old, was being teased at school. That’s when Tommy and his mom Nathalie Wendling decided to publish a book which came to be entitled “Melanie & Tommy have two pet rates and one syndrome.” By writing and publishing the book, Tommy wanted to educate his friends about his sister’s syndrome while still entertaining them. That’s why the book tells the story of a week in the life of Melanie and Tommy and the antics of their two pet rats. In addition, Tommy’s mom Nathalie Wendling and her husband John William Glatzmayer, who live at Manotick, wanted to see the book published to broaden awareness about Cornelia de Lange Syndrome and to help find and identify as many individuals suffering from the syndrome as possible who are living without diagnosis or support. Since publication of the book in 2009, more than 6,500 copies have been sold. In addition, Tommy and Melanie have done over 30 presentations both across Canada and in the United States. They have been interviewed on radio, television and for print media. They have had numerous book signings. Tommy has been a guest speaker at fundraising events and conferences. The presentations at schools be-

gan in Ottawa in 2010 when Tommy and his mother were asked to make a presentation. Tommy, then only seven years old, wanted to make the presentation by himself with his sister and their two pet rats by his side. He delivered a message about courage, strength, love and acceptance. It took two years to produce the book as everything from printing to finding a photographer had to be figured out. It also took time to try to include in the book all of the questions that are frequently asked about Melanie’s syndrome. Tommy and his mother have a second book now finished with publication coming up soon. Cornelia de Lange Syndrome is a developmental disorder that affects many parts of the body. Symptoms can range from relatively mild to se-

Sufferers from the Syndrome may also have behavior problems including aggression, self-injury or a desire for a structured routine. Some of these are autistic-like behaviors. Treatment of this Syndrome often takes an interdisciplinary approach which includes speech, occupational and physical therapists, teachers, physicians and parents. Cornelia de Lange syndrome has affected Tommy’s sister Melanie in a number of ways as outlined in the book. For Melanie, learning new skills is difficult and time consuming. It took Melanie five years to learn how to chew food. It took her nine years to learn how to jump with two feet. And it took her six years to say 20 words. For Melanie, basic skills like walking, talking and eating are challenging. This means that more fifciult skills like reading, writing, skating, sewing and more will probably take years and years of practice to perfect.

Lorne Cassidy Elementary School in Stittsville on Monday, Oct. 29 dealing with Tommy’s book which he wrote to try to explain his sister’s Snydrome and to prevent teasing and bullying of her.

vere. It is characterized by slow growth before and after birth, intellectual disability that can be profound, skeletal abnormalities of the arms and hands and distinctive facial features. Mutations in certain genes can cause Cornelia de Lange Syndrome. The first ever documented case happened in 1916. The disease was researched by a Dutch pediatrician, Cornelia de Lange, after whom the disorder has been named. The diagnosis of Carnelia de Lange Syndrome is primarily a clinical one based on signs and symptoms observed through an evaluation by a physician. The Syndrome can cause some physical abnormalities such as small hands and feet, hearing impairments, heart defects, long eye lashes and small head size. Children with the Syndrome can suffer from gastrointestinal tract difficulties, vomiting, constipation and gaseous distention. These symptoms can vary from mild to severe.

Tribute to fallen comrades Special to the News

EMC news - At last Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual Remembrance banquet at the Stittsville Legion Hall, there was one small table that was off on its own, with no one sitting there. But it was probably the most important table there because it was there as a tribute to honour those who have died in war. The presence of the table was to symbolize that these fallen comrades in arms were there at the banquet, at least in spirit. The table was round to show everlasting concern for these fallen comrades. And the table setting included various items, each of which represented a cer-

tain symbolic feeling. The white tablecloth symbolized the purity of the motives of those who answered the call to duty to serve the cause of freedom. A single red rose, displayed in a vase, was to remind onlookers of the life of each fallen comrade and of the loved ones and friends of these comrades. The vase was tied with a red ribbon, symbolizing a continued determination to remember these fallen comrades. A slice of lemon on a bread plate was there as a reminder of the bitter fate of those who will never return, sacriďŹ ced to the horrors of war. A pinch of salt symbolized the tears

endured by the families of those who have sacriďŹ ced everything in the cause of freedom for their country. A Bible on the table represented the strength gained through faith to sustain those lost to the country. An inverted glass was on the table, a sign that fallen comrades cannot take part in any current toasts. And the chair at the table was empty, a stark reminder that these fallen comrades are no longer among us. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Let us remember â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and never forget their sacriďŹ ce,â&#x20AC;? was said as the symbolism of this small table with an empty chair was explained at the Remembrance banquet.

DID YOU KNOW? WAR MEMORIAL REMEMBRANCE DAY Stittsvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s War Memorial, located in front of the Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena, has a special story behind it. The members of the Royal Canadian Legion in Stittsville had made do with a temporary war memorial every year for the November 11th Remembrance Day Services since 1969, when they were established. In 1981 they decided they had enough funds to build one. Additionally, a Stittsville resident, Ken Killick, an R.A.F. veteran said that he and three American friends would donate an obelisk as well as the backdrop walls of precast stone to be part of the memorial. The obelisk is 16 feet tall and weighs 2,000 pounds. On Saturday June 26, 1982 it was officially dedicated, ready for its first Remembrance Day later that year. *Information regarding the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Did you knowâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;? story was taken from the book Stittsville a Sense of Place by Barbara Bottriell, 1998.

City of Ottawa Councillor Reports By Shad Qadri, Councillor Ward Six Stittsville City of Ottawa

Stittsville firm moving building John Curry

EMC news - It is a Stittsville-based firm, CDS Building Services, that is relocating the heritage Horticulture Building at Lansdowne Park in Ottawa, the biggest move of this nature in North America this year. CDS Building Services is considered one of only a handful of firms worldwide with the expertise and experience to undertake this type of structural move while ensuring the integrity of what is viewed as an historically significant building. The relocation began last Friday and it is expected that its 150 metre journey to its new site will be completed this week, with the Horticulture Building sitting at its new site at the east end of the Aberdeen Pavilion. And what a move it is! The building is moving on its journey at a walking speed, rolling on 48 dollies, 17 of which are powered. Each dolly carries about 32 tonnes of weight which is the equivalent of 64 pickup trucks. The building halts every five to ten feet in order to ensure that the wheels are properly aligned so that the building will come to rest in its new position exactly. The building was raised almost 90 centimeters using the only hydraulic jack system of its type in the world to life and lower the building safely. The area beneath building at its long-time site was excavated to match the height of its new location which will be over a parking garage. The

bottom wall of the building is now about 200 centimeters above the ground. The Horticulture Building, built in 1914, was designed by Ottawa architect Allan Keefer along with architect Francis Sullivan who had an association with the famous American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. As a result, the Horticulture Building is a rare Canadian interpretation of the Prairie Style of architecture developed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Another example of Francis Sullivan’s work which has a Prairie Style influence as well is St. Clare’s Catholic Church on Dwyer Hill Road in Goulbourn. Built in 1915, it also exhibits the qualities associated with Frank Lloyd Wright’s style of architecture. This style is marked by its horizontal lines, flat or hipped roofs with broad overhanging eaves and windows grouped in horizontal bands. The Horticulture Building consists of a two-storey front portion along with an exhibition hall that has a clear span roof supported on steel columns encased in projecting masonry pillars with recessed walls forming bays with a symmetrical fenestration pattern. The building had been designated as a heritage structure but the designation was removed by Ottawa city council to allow for the relocation. The relocated building will be re-designated once its rehabilitation is completed. Over the past 20 years, the Horticulture Building, like other buildings at Lansdowne Park, was allowed to deteriorate. With this move, the structure will be re-

stored and adapted for new public uses. “Moving the Horticulture Building is part of restoring this architectural jewel, allowing it to become an active anchor between Ottawa’s heritage and the dynamic public space in the urban park,” Ottawa mayor Jim Watson said about the relocation project. The relocated Horticulture Building and the Aberdeen Pavilion are to form an eastern heritage gateway to Lansdowne Park. To prepare for the move, CDS Building Movers staff has been on site at the Horticulture Building for several months, preparing the building for the move. Four hundred and eighty tones of steel beams were installed on the interior of the building to strength and support the structure for the move. The building was lifted off the ground by 60 hydraulic jacks which have now been replaced with the 48 wheeled dollies that are now rolling the building to its new site. CDS Building Movers, located on Sweetnam Drive in Stittsville, is a structural moving and consulting company that has preserved and recycled historically significant buildings and structures across the province. It has over 40 years of experience in relocating heritage structures. The firm’s status and renown in the industry has allowed it to draw on the expertise and experience of Structure Design and Consulting Inc. and WCSE Inc., two United States engineering firms which have assisted with the project, providing resources for the concept and design of this relocation project.

‘Women at War’ at meeting Special to the News

EMC news - Wartime nursing will be front and centre at the upcoming November meeting of the Goulbourn Township Historical Society. But it will not be the only wartime job done by women which will be discussed at the event. In wartime, many women did serve as nurses but they also did other tasks. The program, entitled “Women at War,” will explore not only

nursing but other jobs that women did during wartime. Guest speaker Deborah Brummell of Stittsville will be talking about the wartime experiences of her great great aunt Em who enlisted in the First World War as a nursing sister. Em worked with the British Army and served in France. Thanks to Em’s war diary, Ms. Brummell will be telling about Em’s wartime experiences.

The Historical Society is hoping that many who attend this meeting will have stories to tell about female relatives and friends who served the country during wartime. Anyone who has mementos such as photographs, medals, documents or whatever related to these wartime experiences are urged to bring them to the meeting and show them as you share your story with the group. This November meeting of

the Goulbourn Township Historical Society will take place on Saturday, Nov. 17 at 1:30 p.m. at the Stittsville Legion Hall on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville. There is handicapped access to the building on its north side for those who might require such access. Admission to this Nov. 17 meeting is free with everyone welcome. There will be refreshments, also free.

A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that the City of Ottawa would be testing fire hydrants throughout the village of Munster. That work was rescheduled and will now occur on November 16, 2012 between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Testing ensures that hydrants are working well and verifies their flow capacity, facilitating future upgrades to the MunsterHamlet drinking water pumping station. Following the completion of this testing, after 3:00 pm and before you use the water from your tap for drinking, cooking or laundry purposes, turn on one COLD tap for a few minutes nearest the water meter to flush your own pipes. Please be advised that if you use your water system during the period of testing, rusty or discoloured water from the hydrant testing may be drawn into your internal piping system and hot water tank. If this occurs, you should thoroughly flush your internal plumbing system from each tap to remove any accumulated deposits and avoid the possibility of staining. Red or discoloured water is not harmful to your health, but it can stain your laundry and bathroom fixtures.

Budget 2013 Last week, I gave a quick overview on the draft budget that was tabled on October 24. The budget will come before Council on the 28th of November. Locally, the budget includes previously announced road resurfacing projects such as portions of Ottawa Street, King Street and Flewellyn Road. It also includes the replacement of the slab at the Richmond Arena, pedestrian countdown timers for Perth & Fowler, and also identifies money for future budgets on repairs to the Jock Trail Bridge and the McBean Bridge.

Fibre art inspired by books on display at library John Curry

EMC news - It is an art exhibition in a library. Now, a library is filled with books. So, why not feature art that is inspired by a book. Wow, that’s thinking “out of the box,” as it were. But, then again, by doing this, the group putting on the exhibition is simply living up to its name, the “Out of the Box” fibre artists. And that is what has happened for this month’s exhibition at the Art Space Wall at the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library. Featuring 35 different pieces of fibre art done by 20 different members of the group, the exhibition features art inspired by authors and books as diverse as William Shakespeare’s MacBeth, Robert Wasserman’s “My Life on Golden Pond,” Linda Barnes’ Carlotta Carlyle mystery series, “The Book of Irish Legends” by Iain Zaczeh, the “Ontario Wildflower Book” by Linda Kershaw, “Emma” by Jane Austen, “A Year in Provence” by Peter Mayle, “The Hobbit” by J.R.R. Tolbien and the 1830 novel “Le Rouge et Le Noir” by Stendhal, the pen name of French writer MarieHenri Beyle. And this is only a sampling of the books that provided the inspiration for the works of art in this exhibition.

In the glass display case that is part of the Art Space Wall area, there is Juanita Sauve’s colourful book cover for “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz,” the children’s novel written by L. Frank Baum in 1900 which went on to become a popular musical and then a movie. The book cover, which shows the emerald city with the yellow brick road leading to it, features hand dyed cotton, beads, sequins and gemstones. And if your eyes can leave this yellow brick road scene, they quickly migrate to the dolls on display in the case, such as Cheryl Ford’s 16 inch high Miss Marple from the Agatha Christie mystery series. Or there’s Jacquie Lecuyer’s Moulin Rouge inspired by the movie which in turn came from a book Or Jacquie Lecuyer’s 16 inch high Fairy Doll or her amazing Green Doll portraying that curtainrod dress made famous by comedian Carol Burnett and inspired for her by the Burnett book “One More Time.” Sandy Goldsmith loves dragons and also likes beads. So she combined these loves in creating “Uncle Charlie,” an 18 inch high purple dragon. This is not all that is in the display case. There’s Doreen Meyer’s “My Healing Path Chakra Book,” which features hand stitching, yarn and em-

bellished felt. There’s also the crazy hand-embroidered patchwork “Blue Bag” by Elena Keen and Rita Rottman’s “Threads of Choice” featuring Roget’s Thesaurus. But on to the Art Space Wall and its 26 pieces of fibre art, revealing in their totality the diversity of colour and style and appearance which can be accomplished in fibre art. None is more spectacular in its colour than Lynn Ruff’s stunning “Kites Over Afghanistan” depiction of multi-coloured swirling kites flying over Afghanistan, inspired by the book “The Kite Runner.” And if you want thought provoking inspiration from a piece, what about Susan Lilley’s “Black and Red and Re(a)d’s All Over,” inspired by a recognition that text books are being replaced by online information. Or for beauty, what about Meredith Filshie’s “Meadows and Hills” inspired by the book “Window Gardens in Bloom” by Margaret Vant Erve and all created through the use of hand painted silk that is hand stitched with cotton, silk and metal fibres. Elena Keen also found inspiration in Margaret Vant Erve’s book for her work “I Love Window Gardens” depicting three potted flowers in a window. Nancy Garrard wanted to show the numerous shades

of grey found in nature and hence her work “Fifty Shades of Grey,” naming the piece after the title of the 2011 best selling erotic novel by British author E.L. James. And the exhibition has more. Bev Hastings’ “Queen Anne’s Lace 2,” Patricia Gordon’s white work “Angel Wisdom” based on the book “The

Hidden Messages in Water” by Masaru Emoto, and Frances Taylor’s “Titania’s Bower,” associated with William Shakespeare‘s “A Midsummer’s Night Dream” because its dream-like appearance just screams out that it is the body of a fairy. And there’s more, each piece depicting a scene or

object or theme related to a book. For instance, “Tara’s Garden” by Neera Huckvale, featuring appliqué and hand quilted silk, was inspired by the book “Ishmael” by Daniel Quinn, writing about humanity’s skewered relationship with nature. See FIBRE, page 27

Hydro Ottawa crews help U.S. utilities after Hurricane Sandy A group of 13 Hydro Ottawa power line maintainers are in Connecticut to assist Northeast Utilities in restoring power to approximately 354,000 residents after Hurricane Sandy caused significant damage to the area. “Hydro Ottawa offered assistance without hesitation. Restoring power is a specialized skill and the electricity industry supports each other in these times of need,” said Bryce Conrad, Hydro Ottawa’s President and Chief Executive Officer. Ottawa escaped the storm relatively unscathed. At its peak the storm knocked out power to approximately 3,000 Hydro Ottawa customers in the Casselman, Blackburn Hamlet, Crystal Beach and Merivale areas. Crews worked to successfully restore power across the city and our now able to support other communities in need of help. The Hydro Ottawa crews are working outside Danielson, Connecticut where high winds and falling trees have downed power lines and damaged poles. “When power outages occur, Hydro Ottawa employees go above and beyond to ensure public safety and to get the power back on as soon as possible,” added Conrad. “I am proud that these crews will be using these talents to help our U.S. neighbours.” This is the first time Hydro Ottawa has dispatched crews to the United States. During past widespread power outages, crews have assisted utilities in Ontario and Quebec. The 13 power line maintainers join 12 Hydro Ottawa contract forestry workers who are clearing trees in Connecticut to restore the power.

Fibre art Continued from page 26

Books are certainly front and centre with Susan Lilleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s depiction of shelving and books entitled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Two Books Short of a Full Shelf,â&#x20AC;? a work inspired by an effort to purge books from her personal library. And donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss Meredith Filshieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sharkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Teeth Can Be Beautiful,â&#x20AC;? a 10 inch by 14 inch piece featuring ten fossilized sharksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; teeth,

combined with cotton thread and linen. And thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lois Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s larger (21 inches by 17 inches) piece entitled â&#x20AC;&#x153;A River Runs Through It,â&#x20AC;? inspired by Norman MacLeanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book of the same name and using flowing water to symbolize life and love. All of these fibre art pieces, which are on display at the Stittsville library until the end of November, are created by members of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Out of the Boxâ&#x20AC;? fibre artists group which was founded in 1997. It is a cooperative association of artists who are passionate about creating innovative, thought-provoking works of art and promoting fibre art through exhibitions, educa-

tion and professional development. Members of the group include machine and hand embroiderers, art quilters, weavers, felters, doll makers, silk painters, dyers, mixed media and other fibre artists. At its meetings, members share art techniques, design ideas, artistic processes and inspiration. This exhibit at the Stittsville library displays the wide variety of styles, materials and techniques used by â&#x20AC;&#x153;Out of the Boxâ&#x20AC;? members. The theme for the exhibition as determined by the group was â&#x20AC;&#x153;From A Book.â&#x20AC;? This seemed to be appropriate since the exhibition was go-

Vision portrays Stittsville Main Street in 20 years John Curry

EMC news - Nov. 2032. Buses are depositing riders on Stittsville Main Street, passengers picked up on routes through the village. Shops line Stittsville Main Street, mixed in with residential buildings that are not that tall. But all of the buildings reflect architectural details akin to some of the true heritage buildings that still exist along the street. It is a pedestrian friendly environment with benches and other

street furniture, while cyclists move along the street without concern. Vehicular traffic is steady but, wait, there’s no trucks as they have been directed to that north/south arterial through the Fernbank lands to the east. Walkers stroll along the pathways that branch out in all directions from the Poole Creek pathway and Trans Canada Trail. There are patches of greenery at the Poole Creek and Trans Canada Trail crossings as well as elsewhere along the street. And the whole scene gives a

sparkling, well kept feeling – this is a streetscape of which people including visitors, business owners and adjoining residents are all proud. This, or some variation of it, is the kind of Stittsville Main Street that those who attended the first public consultation workshop for a new Community Design Plan for Stittsville Main Street on Thursday evening, Nov. 1 at the Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena hall collectively envisioned. And the vision was enunciated, roughly

and quickly and in a vision statement that still needs some fine-tuning, as seeing this Stittsville Main Street of the future 20 years down the road as “A community destination with a commercial and residential main street that preserves heritage and village character and is pedestrian and cyclist friendly.” This vision statement, hastily composed under the direction of meeting facilitator David Sherwood of Pace Consultants, does not specifically mention every point

that arose from the three 20 minute discussion periods at five different subject tables during the evening. But read in conjunction with the lists compiled for each discussion period at each table, the vision statement makes some assumptions, such as “village character” covers a desired three storey height restriction on buildings. Indeed, the height of buildings along the Stittsville Main Street of the future was the big issue of the meeting or at least the one which generated a determining vote, with those opting for a three storey maximum outvoting others who wanted anything from four storeys to ten storeys by more than a two to one margin (19 to 8). The discussions led to these common beliefs for the future: Stittsville Main Street should be a mix of commercial and residential development featuring small (read not “big box”) commercial enterprises and low (read no more than three storeys) residential buildings; the street’s heritage should be preserved and new buildings should be built with some architectural reference to this heritage; the street should be pedestrian and cyclist friendly; the street should become a destination, not a thoroughfare; the street should be friendly and convivial with appropriate benches, signage and street furniture like garbage cans; Poole Creek should be preserved with walkways extended in all directions; there should be a local bus service that brings residents to Main Street rather than always to downtown Ottawa; and the Stittsville Main Street of the future should have sidewalks along its full length, with both buildings and public areas well maintained. Other points which were added to this list by those in attendance after the facilitator prepared and explained what the table discussions had produced included a continued focus on the Trans Canada Trail and establishment of a farmers’ market. It was facilitator David Sherwood himself who brought up having less commercial traffic (trucks) on the Stittsville Main Street of the future. City of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri had explained about the role that the future north/south arterial road through the Fernbank lands and the Kanata West lands would be playing in providing an alternate route for Stittsville Main Street. The idea of having less commercial traffic on Stittsville Main Street was accepted as part of the group’s vision for the street’s future. Facilitator David Sherwood said that a vision statement for

Stittsville Main Street should present a picture of what the street should be like 20 years from now. Charles Lanktree, the city of Ottawa planner who is the project manager for this Stittsville Main Street Community Design Plan process, told those at the meeting that this vision statement, once examined and refined a bit by the Public Advisory Committee that is working with city staff on the Community Design Plan, will be placed on the city’s website. Facilitator David Sherwood summed up the status of this vision statement developed at this public workshop meeting as follows: “None of this is the last word. This is the first word.” There will be another public open house meeting about next March which will look at the existing conditions along Stittsville Main Street as the process to develop a Community Design Plan for Stittsville Main Street continues. It is expected that a Community Design Plan for the street plus any related Official Plan and zoning amendments will be up for Ottawa city council approval in the first quarter of 2014. It was pointed out at this workshop meeting that the overall objective of the Community Design Plan process is to develop a broad integrated 20 year vision for Stittsville Main Street from Carp Road in the north to Bell Street in the south. The topics at the five discussion tables set up for the meeting were land use and design; transportation; heritage and character; environment, open space and parks; and infrastructure. Councillor Qadri, in his remarks at the beginning of the workshop, explained that this Community Design Plan process will shape the future of Stittsville Main Street, a process that needs input from the public. He said that a Community Design Plan for the street is essential to provide a framework for development along the street. He said that it is important to rejuvenate Stittsville Main Street while retaining its main street feel. He said that the Community Design Plan process should determine how this can be done. Project manager Charles Lanktree agreed that the Community Design Plan will provide the framework to guide growth along Stittsville Main Street but noted that a Community Design Plan must conform with the city’s Official Plan. He said that the Community Design Plan must focus on what is important to Stittsville residents as the community transforms itself into an urban village.

Jo-Joâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pizza supports the community - see, its walls tell the story

EMC news - Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s there for all to see â&#x20AC;&#x201C; walls filled with sports team plaques, each one of the more than 100 currently on display there as a way for the team to thank Jo-Joâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pizza for its support. And thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bound to be more, because the Stittsville Main Street business continues to provide support for minor sports teams in the community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; over 40 this year alone, ranging from soccer to hockey to ringette to girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hockey to ball and more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We try to help out as much as we can,â&#x20AC;? says Zeyad Kassis of Jo-Joâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pizza, a family owned and operated business in Stittsville for over 20 years now. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We always say yes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; never say no,â&#x20AC;? he adds about requests received from minor sports teams and other charity fundraising events like the annual Rory Bradley and Tori Carswell memorial golf tournaments. This support for community minor sports teams and community fundraising initiatives has really blossomed at Jo-Joâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s over the past decade or so as a way of giving back to the community for its outstanding support of Jo-Joâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pizza over the years. Noting that Jo-Joâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is a family operation, Zeyad says that Jo-Joâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in turn tries to treat the wider community as

part of the family, helping out whenever it can. This community support goes beyond just the support of minor sports teams and community fundraising projects. Jo-Joâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pizza hires local high school students to take orders, work at the counter and make deliveries. Jo-Joâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s provides support to local silent auctions as well as events like local horse shows, golf tournaments and church events. Anything to do with the community is how Zeyad explains the criteria on which Jo-Joâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bases its decisions for support. Whenever there is some sort of event in the community, Jo-Joâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pizza is always open to providing some sort of support in terms of a donation. We never turn down any sort of opportunity to sponsor, Zeyad reiterates, all because Jo-Joâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wants to try to do as much as it can to support the community which has supported the business so strongly for so long. Jo-Joâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pizza focuses mainly on supporting and sponsoring Stittsville minor sports teams although some teams like the Ottawa West Ringette Association ones draw players from beyond Stittsville. And having all of the team photos and plaques populating the walls at Jo-Joâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pizza does provide Zeyad and the other family members at Jo-Joâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

Pizza with some of their most precious moments, especially when youngsters come in with their parents and look at their team plaque and photo on the wall. Or it could be someone a little older who drops in and makes a point of seeking out a team photo showing a sports memory from the past. With a dozen or so players in each team photo on display, you know that there are lots of youngsters and now grown-up youngsters who have a photographic piece of their life in Stittsville hanging on the wall at Jo-Joâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pizza. Jo-Joâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pizza in Stittsville is a business that is supporting its community and the visual evidence of this is hanging there on its wall for all to see and enjoy.


Members of the Kassis family who are holding and standing in front of just some of the many plaques from sorts teams which Jo-Joâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pizza of Stittsville has sponsored as a way of supporting and giving back to its community are, at the front, Natasha Kassis, and, back row, from left, Fatina Kassis, Zeyad Kassis and Rebecca Kassis.

This fundraising is meant to help Anderson and his mom have the financial resources to provide for Anderson’s medical needs and to allow his mother to stay home and care for him during his recovery. Mom Shelley Black left her job to be with Anderson through his medical ordeal since last June and now, thanks to the fundraising, she will be able to stay with him and care for him at least for the next year. Funds raised in the community to help Anderson will go toward neurological physiotherapy, equipment needs and various forms of treatment while also helping his mom to continue to be at his side throughout his recovery.

EMC news - Rain barrels, anyone? Well, mark down the date of Saturday, April 20 because that is when you will be able to pick up a rain barrel purchased from the Stittsville Village Association (SVA). At its last meeting, the SVA executive approved holding such a rain barrel sale again, repeating the sale which the SVA held this past spring which saw the sale of over 400 rain barrels. This decision was in response to a query from SVA president Marilyn Jenkins

about whether the executive felt that the SVA should have another rain barrel sale this coming spring. “Do we have an appetite to do this again?” the president asked, receiving a positive response from the executive members. This 2013 rain barrel sale may be conducted in conjunction with the Scouting organization in Bridlewood, although this still has to be determined. President Jenkins pointed out that combining with the Bridlewood Scouts may give the SVA a contingent of youth who could distribute flyers about the rain barrel sale in

the community. Sobey’s in Stittsville has once again agreed to allow the use of its parking lot for the pickup of the rain barrels on Saturday, April 20. In addition, Sobey’s owner Tim LaPlante, who also sits on the SVA executive, agreed to help distribute rain barrel information flyers through his store and also to have a rain barrel display in the store again this year. Efforts will also be made to get other Stittsville businesses to also hand out the flyers about the rain barrel sale. The rain barrel sale was a major fundraising event for the SVA earliere this year.

People’s Choice balloting for fall exhibition John Curry

EMC news - Mike Goguen continues to be a fan favourite at the Ottawa West Arts Association (owaa) gallery at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex. Winner of the People’s Choice balloting for his oil on canvas painting in the gallery’s “Did You Say HOT” exhibition in July and August, he has now tied for top spot in the People’s Choice voting in the gallery’s “Fall Fantasy” exhibition which ended on Friday, Oct. 26. His oil on canvas of the iconic Canadian scene of Peggy’s Cove tied for top honours in the People’s Choice voting with Stephen Harrison’s photograph on dye-infused aluminum entitled “Fall in Montreal” depicting the lights of an iron lamppost surrounded by the changing leaves of autumn. Indeed, this high finish in this People’s Choice balloting marked the third straight exhibition in which Mr. Harrison’s work has been among the best vote getters. For the “Did You Say HOT” exhibition which ended at the beginning of September, Mr. Harrison placed third in the People’s Choice voting for his dye-infused aluminum photo entitled “Party Drink.” At the “Bursting with Life” exhibition which ran at the owaa gallery from May through June, Mr. Harrison’s work “Summer Daisy” took second place in the People’s Choice voting. In the voting for the just-ended “Fall Fantasy” exhibition, the first place tie involving Mike Goguen and Stephen Harrison was followed by Donna Wiegand who placed second in the voting with her “Purple Coneflowers” oil painting featuring five big blooms. Third place in the People’s Choice voting for this “Fall Fantasy” exhibition went to Patrick Bourke for his photograph entitled “Checkered Sky” in which he captured a fall sky filled with baby puffy clouds over a lake, an awesome fall scene. This People’s Choice balloting provides an opportunity for those who view the artwork on display at the owaa gallery to indicate which piece of art on exhibit is their favourite. When viewing the exhibit, people have the option of filling out a People’s Choice ballot identifying their favourite work on display in the exhibit. There are ballots and a ballot box on site at the gallery. Filling out a ballot in this People’s Choice voting at the owaa gallery is free and it’s fun to do while also providing the artists with a glimpse of the people’s view regarding the art on exhibit.

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories

Sugar bowl was more than just egg money It was a blue sugar bowl. Much larger than the one we used every day on the kitchen table. Father said it had been in his family as long as he could remember. It wasn’t used for sugar anymore, though. It was where Mother kept her egg money. It had a matching jug too, but it just stood beside the sugar bowl and was never used. I figured the reason Mother used the sugar bowl for her egg money and not the jug was because it had a lid on it. To protect what was inside, sort of. Goodness knows we kids would never dare go into the sugar bowl without permission, although sometimes, if we had tired of looking around the Eaton’s catalogue in an evening of sitting around the kitchen table, Mother would let me take down the sugar bowl and count her egg money. Mother never heard of egg money when she moved to that back woods farm in Renfrew County after living 18 years in New York. But it was Aunt Bertha and Mrs. Beam, too, who told her about saving a penny here and a penny there. It was to be hers alone. Mrs. Beam snorted when she told mother about it being hers alone though. Sadly Mother soon found out what she meant. Now, about the egg money. It was Mother’s challenge to keep money in the sugar bowl. That meant that every week she went into Renfrew and peddled her wares door-to-door. At the first, Mother thought that that meant just peddling eggs. But Aunt Bertha was quick to show her how she could add greatly to her egg money. “It’s not just from selling eggs, you know,” she told Mother. Everyone in Renfrew likes a fresh chicken now and again Aunt Bertha said. Soon Mother added sticky buns, freshly churned butter and homemade soap to her wares. Once she tried selling small braided rugs and hand sewn aprons, but she soon found out the

women of Renfrew were just as busy as she was making rugs and aprons. Aunt Bertha said the money could be used for anything she wanted: new print from Walker Store or maybe a fresh pair of lisle stockings. But Mother had other plans for her egg money. She longed to go back to New York. Not to stay of course, which was always a fear deep in my heart, because she talked about the place so often and I knew how much she missed the life she once led. No, it would be just for a visit, to spend a few days with her friend Rosie and maybe go to an opera again or visit the museums she loved. Yes, she longed for just one trip back to New York and her wish was that one day there would be enough egg money in the blue sugar bowl to go back for a visit. Often, at night, she would take the bowl down from the backto-the-wall cupboard and spread the money out on the oilcloth on the kitchen table. She would count and stack the coins in order and if there were any bills, she would flatten them out and put a salt shaker on them to hold them flat. Then she would write the amount and the date on a slip of paper and tuck it into the sugar bowl with the money and back it would go on the shelf in the cupboard. There would be a big sigh. Never would there be enough money for the trip back to New York. It wasn’t because she would dip into it for something frivolous like silk stockings or a new hat -- the reason was much simpler than that. It would be because Father would have had to have some of the few coins she had worked so hard to accumulate. Father never had more than a few cents in his overall pockets. So when something wore out, like it often did on the farm or a new piece of harness was needed, inner tubes to replace the well-patched ones on the car or even maybe a new plow point, it was into the egg money Father would go. There would be so much sadness on such a day. I always dreaded being in the kitchen when that happened. Father would come in from the barns, stop just inside the kitchen door and pause as if he was undecided where he was heading. If Mother was busy at the stove or at the wash tub, she would pause for just a moment and a look of sadness would come over her face. Father would slowly walk over to the cupboard and take down the blue bowl and take out a few coins or one or two of the bills, cram them into his pocket and quietly leave the house. Not a word would be spoken. We would hear him leave the yard in the wagon or buggy and I would know he was headed into Renfrew or to Briscoe’s General Store with a few coins from Mother’s egg money to get what was needed to keep the farm going. It was at those times that I would know once again Mother’s dream of a trip back to her beloved New York was as far away as ever.

Diabetes information at Brown’s YIG Special to the News

EMC news - November is Diabetes Awareness Month and Brown’s Your Independent Grocer in Stittsville is one place to visit to discover more information about the disease which afflicts more than nine million Canadians.

That’s right – one in four Canadians are living with diabetes or pre-diabetes. It is estimated, in fact, that it will become one in three Canadians affected by diabetes by the year 2020. That’s why it is important to know about diabetes.

Blood donor clinics in Richmond, Stittsville Special to the News

EMC news – Community blood donor clinics are coming up in both Richmond and Stittsville. Canadian Blood Services will be holding a community blood donor clinic at the St. Philip Catholic Church’s parish hall at the corner of Fortune Street and Burke Street in Richmond on Friday, Nov. 16 from 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. A community blood donor clinic will be held in the gymnasium at Holy Spirit Catholic School on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville on Wednesday, Nov. 21 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. To book an appointment at either of these community blood donor clinics, visit Every minute of every day in Canada, someone needs blood and the only way that the blood is available when needed is through the generosity and caring of blood donors who willingly attended community blood donor clinics to donate blood. It often requires many units of blood to help one patient. A car accident victim, for example, can need up to 50 units of blood which means 50 blood donations are needed just to help that one patient. Leukemia patients can need as many as eight units of blood a week as part of their treatment. So the need for blood donations is great.

Free flu clinic in Richmond Special to the News

EMC news – Ottawa Public Health is holding a free community influenza immunization clinic in Richmond next week. The clinic will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 14 from 3:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at South Carleton High School on McBean Street in Richmond. Receiving the flu vaccine via a flu shot is the most effective way of protecting yourself against the flu virus. Other precautions which help protect against the flu are washing hands often with soap and water or hand sanitizer; covering coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your arm, not your hand; and stay-


ing at home when sick. This year’s flu vaccine will cover three strains of influenza: the 2009 H1N1 strain, an influenza A known as H3N2 and an influenza B component. This free flu clinic in Richmond is one of a series of such clinics being held throughout the city. The clinics began on Saturday, Oct. 27 and are running through to Saturday, Dec. 15 at various locations. Attending this free flu shot clinic is one of the ways in which city of Ottawa residents can receive the flu vaccine. Other ways are through a persona physician or health care provider or at a workplace immunization clinic.

Final decisions about the boundaries for these 15 new federal ridings will be made by the Commission following a series of public hearings, with Ottawa being one of the locations for these hearings. The new federal riding boundaries are expected to be in place in time for the next fixed federal election date which is Oct. 19, 2015. Stittsville is currently in the federal riding of Carleton-Mississippi Mills, along with Kanata, West Carleton, Goulbourn and Mississippi Mills. Under the proposals, Kanata would join with West Carleton/March to form a riding called Carleton-Kanata with a population of

100,118. The Mississippi Mills portion of the current riding of Carleton-Mississippi Mills is being proposed to be included in a riding called Lanark-Frontenac-Hastings which will include all of Lanark County and will have a total population of 108,500. Currently the provincial ridings in this area reflect the boundaries of the federal ridings. However, for this redistribution and creation of new federal ridings, the province may or may not choose to adopt the new federal electoral boundaries as the boundaries for provincial ridings. As present Ontario is the only province where this happens. All other provinces have completely different federal and provincial electoral boundaries.

‘Case for a Cure’ this Saturday Win on road, lose at home usually diagnosed in children and adolescents, which occurs when the pancreas is unable to produce insulin, a hormone that controls the amount of glucose in the blood. About ten percent of people with diabetes have this Type 1 diabetes. The remaining 90 percent of people with diabetes have Type 2 diabetes which occurs when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or when the body does not effectively use the insulin that is produced.

If left untreated or improperly managed, diabetes can result in a variety of complications including heart disease, kidney disease, eye disease and nerve damage. Risk factors for Type 2 diabetes include being a member of a high-risk group such as being of Aboriginal, Hispanic, Asian, South Asian or African descent, overweight, high cholesterol or other fats in the blood and having been diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome, acanthosis nigricans (darkened patches of skin) or schizophrenia.

Marshall, Mildred (Millie) Evelyn

We offer an attractive compensation package. All applicants must have their own vehicles.

It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of George Laughlin Craig on October 26, 2012. George was born in Kinburn, Ontario on June 16, 1922 and was raised on the family farm in nearby Fitzroy Harbour. George is predeceased by his father Richard, mother Sadie, sisters Valerie, Bertha, and his brother Oswald. George left home at the age of 18 and joined the Royal Canadian Air Force. He became a pilot, and thus began his long and rewarding career in aviation. Beginning in St. Eugene, Ontario, he started on the Fleet Finch then went on to Summerside P.E.I. to train on Harvards, where he received his Wings on September 25, 1941. Overseas, George spent 2 years on the Isle of Man in Training Command, flying new gunners, navigators and bomb aimers arriving from all over the world. George then completed his 4 engine conversion at Operational Training Unit and was assigned to 6 Group Bomber Command, 424 Squadron, Skipton-On-Swale, Yorkshire. George completed 34 operational trips, all on the Halifax. He remained in close personal contact with all his crew members as the years rolled by. At the age of 22 George was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross. In January 1945 George returned to Canada and remained with the R.C.A.F. until January 1946. His next adventure was with his brother Oswald. They purchased a diamond drill and headed to Kirkland Lake, Ontario to try their hand at underground mining. George was with the Aerial Survey Division and in 1948 flew one of 4 Lockheed Hudsons to Venezuela, where he met and married Patricia, the love of his life. They began their married life in Edmonton before moving to Montreal where George became, Chief Pilot, C.P.A. Eastern Operations. He maintained his farm in Fitzroy Harbour and built his herd of Aberdeen Angus cattle. These were his â&#x20AC;&#x153;rootsâ&#x20AC;?, always visiting his relatives and friends in the Ottawa Valley. The family moved west in 1963, settling in Richmond B.C., George retired from C.P. Air in 1982 as Captain on the 747. Upon retiring, Dad continued to enjoy hockey, camping and fishing. Dad was a devoted son, husband, father, grandfather and uncle. He is survived by, and will be forever loved and missed by Pat, his wife of 64 years, his four children Janet (John), Richard, Marilyn (Mark), and Bob (Vicki). Dad will always be loved and remembered as a wonderful grandfather by his 5 grandchildren, Michael (Cassie), Graham (Liz), Glenn (Lorelei), Lindsay and Trevor. We wish to thank Belinda, Josephine and the staff of the Richmond General Hospital for all their care and support. A celebration of Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life will be held at St. Anneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Anglican Church, 4071 Francis Road, Richmond B.C. Friday November 2nd at 2 pm. In lieu of flowers the family requests memorial donations be made to The Canadian Diabetes Association. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wishing You All You Wish Forâ&#x20AC;? CL389502

Retail Advertising Sales Representative

The moment that you died Our hearts split in two. The one side filled with memories The other side died with you. We often lay awake at night When the world is fast asleep And take a walk down memory lane With tears upon our cheeks. Remembering you is easy... We do it every day. But missing you is a heartache That never goes away. We hold you tightly within our hearts And there you will remain. Life has gone on without you But it will never be the same. For those who still have their husbands and dads Treat them with tender care. You will never know the emptiness As when you turn and he is not there.
