Inside NEWS

Marketing class helps out ‘CATS’ John Curry

Bren Hunter brings home three world championship gold medals. See page 71

News – It’s a famous Broadway musical that is being presented right here in Stittsville. And the performers and teachers involved with this production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s CATS want to let as many as possible know about it and possibly attend. Imagine – a performance of CATS with all its great music happening right on stage at Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Stittsville. There’s no driving downtown; there’s lot of free parking; and tickets are only $15 for adults and $10 for seniors and students. Now there’s no better entertainment value than that and it’s all happening right here in the community. To get this message out about this upcoming production of CATS at Sacred Heart, those involved with the musical turned to the school’s grade 11 marketing class for some help in promoting the play. Marketing teacher Shawnie Lane took on the challenge for her class as this would be a project for the students that would be based in reality – nothing theoretical about this. “This is a real thing that needs to be done,” Ms. Lane says about the project of creating publicity for the musical. The class set about to create posters to publicize the musical – some big ones, some smaller ones, some for around the school and some for around the community. And the students had some additional incentive – free tickets to the musical are going to the best posters. All of the posters had to meet certain criteria like using the famous cats’ eyes that are associated with the musical. The posters also had to include information about the upcoming production. See MAKING POSTERS, page 19

Lions Club welcomes new members Continued from page 1

Please contact Lion Don Redtman at 613831-1054 or via email at for more information about this upcoming open house information session or to indicate your intention to attend. Those planning on attending are asked to contact Lion Redtman by Saturday, Nov. 23 if possible. Everywhere in Canada, Lionism has come to be synonymous with community service and in Stittsville, it has been no different. Since 1964, the Stittsville District Lions Club has developed a record of community service and involvement of which both the Club itself and the community can be extremely proud. The Club’s fundraising and community work have been ongoing, with the value of its contributions to various community projects and initiatives being in the thousands of dollars. But the monetary value of the Lions work and contributions over the years since the Club’s formation in 1964 is not the most important result of its receipt of its charter from Lions International in 1964. What has been the Club’s most important contribution to the community has been the fact that it has brought together a group of members who, selflessly and without personal gain, have worked to help make the Stittsville community a better place in which to live. The official charter night of the Stittsville District Lions Club was October 19, 1964 but Lionism in Stittsville was not born on that particular night. Rather, it had been born in the preceding months when West Ottawa Lions Club members Lee Rickey and Fred Chapman sowed the seeds of Lionism in the community. These seeds were nourished by the efforts of such people as Denny Graham, Roger Lessard, Ernie Moore and Bud Haw, who talked things up in the community and held organization meetings in the basement of the village municipal office. It was from these preliminary meetings that the formation of the Stittsville District Lions Club happened. The Charter Night itself was a gala affair which was held at the Ambassador Hall in Westboro. Over 400 persons attended this charter night which was presided over by Gerry Cummings, president of the West Ottawa Lions Club which was the sponsoring club for Stittsville. For most of its first 15 years of existence, the Stittsville District Lions Club held its regular meetings in the basement hall of St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Stittsville, although for a time the meetings alternated between the Presbyterian Church and the then-Wesley United Church. In 1979/80, the Lions Club built the Stittsville Medical Centre on Stittsville Main Street, with the downstairs of the building becoming the Club’s permanent meeting hall. The hall also served as a meeting room for Stittsville groups, such as the Brownies and the Stittsville District Snowmobile Club. Over the years, it has provided much needed meeting space in the community. Not only that but the hall has been used extensively for receptions as well as family and group parties.

Several years after its formation, with the opening of the Stittsville arena in 1971, the Stittsville District Lions Club undertook its first big challenge, the raising of $10,000 for an artificial ice plant for the new arena. A successful marathon walk raised $7,000 in helping the Club achieve its goal. The Lions Club purchased the time clock for the arena and also helped out, along with the Stittsville Minor Hockey Association, with the purchase of a new Zamboni ice cleaning machine for the arena in the 1970’s. Over the years, the Stittsville District Lions Club has supported minor hockey, public speaking, minor ball and intermediate hockey. Right from its beginning, the Stittsville District Lions Club was involved with the annual Christmas Cheer radio broadcast of the West Ottawa Lions Club on CFRA radio. In recent years, this radio broadcast has ceased but the Lions Club has continued with its Christmas fundraising, directing the funds raised to the Stittsville Food Bank and thus continuing to help the needy of the community. Welfare work, that is, being there with help when needed, has always been a major focus of the Stittsville District Lions Club. Christmas baskets have been one visible aspect of this welfare work; paying the heating bill for a fellow resident of the village suffering from hard times is another, more hidden aspect of the Club’s work. When a family was burned out of its home, losing everything, it was the Lions Club which pitched in and, along with neighbours and friends, raised much-needed money and helped rebuild the home. In 1979, the Stittsville District Lions Club undertook a $28,000 renovation project at Alexander Grove ball diamond in Stittsville, rejuvenating the facility which had been first developed in the late 1940’s. This renovation project included new fencing and new lighting at the diamond. The $80,000 Medical Centre building, constructed in 1979/80 by the Lions Club, was a major undertaking. The Club had planned the project for several years and, fully aware of the great need in the village at that time for a doctor’s services, kept working away at realizing the goal. With the establishment of the Medical Centre, a facility was in place which could house a doctor and it was not long before Dr. Jim Bell set up his practice in the facility. A dentist and a chiropractor later established their practices at the Medical Centre, showing that the building was serving the primary need for which it was built. It continues today to be a site for a number of medical services for residents of the community. The Stittsville District Lions Club, since its inception in 1964, has made donations to many charities, has provided trophies and awards for schools, has supported the Canadian National Institute for the Blind’s leader dog program, has at one time sponsored a June Jamboree fun event as well as a winter carnival, has sponsored local card parties and has made a major financial contribution to the Queensway-Carleton Hospital.

Laying wreath for Silver Cross Parents Special to the News

News - Claire and Richard Leger of Stittsville led off the wreath laying portion of the annual Remembrance Day service at the cenotaph at the front of the Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena last Monday afternoon, Nov. 11. The couple, who lost their son Sgt. Marc Leger in a friendly fire incident in Afghanistan, laid a wreath on behalf of Silver Cross Parents. This led off a long procession of wreath laying, including wreaths of Remembrance laid on behalf of the three levels of government – by Carleton-Mississippi Mills MP the Hon. Gordon O’Connor for the federal government, by Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP Jack MacLaren for the provincial government and by city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri for the municipality. It was a rather raw, cool and breezy day but a light drizzle stopped as the ceremony got underway, just before 2 p.m. Monsignor Joseph Muldoon of Holy Spirit Parish in

Stittsville, chaplain of the Stittsville Legion branch, read the opening reading . This was followed by the playing of The Last Post and Reville as well as the Silence and Lament. The reciting of The Red Poppy of Flanders and In Flanders Fields preceded the wreath laying. The singing of God Save The Queen ended the ceremony, after which the parade marched off. Those in the parade, which had marched to the cenotaph from the Stittsville Legion Hall, included veterans, serving members of the military, RCMP officers, representatives of the Ottawa Fire Service and the Ottawa Police Service and representatives of community groups such as the Stittsville District Lions Club. A number of military vehicles were also involved. A crowd of onlookers encircled the cenotaph for the ceremony, with a number of umbrellas engaged. The Stittsville Retirement Community by Revera had its van on the site, allowing for viewing by some of its community residents.

Lest we forget


n the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month the city came to a halt as citizens remembered those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our

country. But sometimes it’s difficult to remember. When attempting to describe the importance of Remembrance Day, the words “lest we forget� often cross our lips, emerging as an almost secular amen to punctuate the ceremonies held at schools, cenotaphs and legions. The meaning of Remembrance Day is passed down from generation to generation in the form of a history lesson. We learn more than 600,000 Canadian soldiers fought in the First World War and one in 10 did not return. The last known Canadian veteran who served in the First World War died in 2010. One million Canadian soldiers fought in the Second World War – more than 46,000 did not survive. Twenty six thousand Canadians participated in the Korean War, with 516 killed, and another 121 soldiers have been killed in peacekeeping missions. In our most recent conflict, 157 soldiers were killed fighting in Afghanistan. Our loss transcends mere numbers – as stark and

horrifying as they are. These are sons and daughters, our fathers and mothers, our brothers and sisters, our next-door neighbours. They were real people, who carried hope for the present, regrets from the past and dreams for the future. And when they died, they left holes in our hearts and voids in families across the country. Every year, we gather and promise to never forget them or their sacrifice. But it’s a difficult promise to make. Remembering requires action, a commitment to learn the lessons of history taught to us by conflicts past. Forgetting is so much easier, and it’s a trap many of us fall into, instead focusing our attention on our personal hopes and dreams, while overlooking those who made that potential future possible. The act of remembrance shouldn’t be optional or relegated to an annual ritual. Remembrance Day is more than just facts and figures; it is part of our living past. It is the responsibility of each generation and every individual to keep the memory alive. Lest we forget.


What we can learn from Toronto’s bad melodrama


little while ago someone was writing about what a blessing it was, for Ottawa, to have a mayor who is boring – that is one who has no newsworthy bad habits. Sure enough, within days came the admission from Toronto’s mayor, Rob Ford, that he has indeed smoked crack cocaine. From there, a story that had been a kind of lingering low-grade scandal everywhere but Toronto, exploded onto the world scene. Everybody, from the late night comedians to television shrinks had something to say. (For the American newspaper U.S.A. Today, the relevant angle was that “Ford was wearing a necktie featuring the logos of all 32 NFL teams while making his confession.� The newspaper ran a photo and helpfully added that: “Although Toronto doesn’t have an NFL team, it has played host to one Buffalo Bills game in each of the past six seasons.� In journalism, as in life, it takes all kinds.) In Toronto, Dr. Drew Pinsky, described as “addiction specialist and U.S. media personality� offered some insights that weren’t bad, considering that he admits to never having met the man. “He clearly is suffering right now,� Pinsky told a Toronto radio station, “and that suffering can be managed and treated. He can have a

Stisville News !URIGA$RIVE 3UITE /TTAWA /. +%"

613-723-5970 Published weekly by:

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town flourishing life again but he has to be willing to give up the alcohol.� Pinsky spotted Ford’s several references to doing drugs while in a drunken stupor. Drinking to the level of stupor “is not a normal relationship with alcohol,� Pinsky said, adding that “he’s drinking sufficiently to have consequences.� Various sufferers will tell you that one of those possible consequences is getting involved in the drug culture. In sufficient quantities, drink loosens the inhibitions, impairs the judgment and makes the drinker less likely to avoid risky behaviour. (If you want a vivid illustration of the process, have a look at a recent book called Superdad, by Toronto journalist Christopher Shulgan.) Much of the clamour surrounding the

Toronto mayor concerns the effect of his behaviour on the city and its reputation. That is fine, but it is also valuable to think of the individual and other individuals like him. Says Pinsky: “He doesn’t deserve to be maligned. He deserves the opportunity to go get help and take care of his medical condition, not work for awhile – probably a month or so – and really get with this and get going.� While it is understandable that many people would like Ford to simply disappear, there would also be distinct advantages to having him stay in the public eye. Because what we have here is a unique teachable moment, as the modern saying goes. Think of it this way: thousands of people in the Toronto area either have or will have problems with addiction – to alcohol and other drugs. From the discussions that we see on the news media, some of the mayor’s supporters come from the group of people likely to come into contact with drug users and drug dealers. They are at risk. It could do these people a world of good to witness the public struggle of a man they have looked up to. If a man as powerful as Rob Ford can have difficulty dealing with alcohol and drugs, so can anyone. That is a lesson worth learning.

Equally important, those who admire the mayor will cheer for him to overcome his difficulties, and that may help them avoid difficulties of their own. This is probably true also of those who, despite political differences, have come to a grudging sympathy for a fellow human being who is obviously in trouble. It is true that watching a public figure, in full view, tackle addiction issues is uncomfortably close to watching a reality show on television. There’s a lot of bad melodrama in this story. But if that’s what it takes, we should all tune in.

Snow Go Program Seniors and persons with disabilities can now register for the City of Ottawa’s snow removal assistance programs. The Snow Go Program helps seniors and persons with disabilities ďŹ nd reliable contractors and/or individuals to clear snow from their private driveways and/or walkways. Once matched up with snow removal help, residents are responsible for making payments directly to the individual or contractor. Eligible seniors and persons with disabilities can also apply to the Snow Go Assist Program, which provides ďŹ nancial assistance and pays for a portion of their snow removal costs. Approved participants may be reimbursed up to 50 per cent of the cost of snow clearing per event, up to a seasonal maximum of $250. This is the seventh year the City of Ottawa is partnering with the Seniors Citizens Council and local home support agencies to deliver these two winter programs.

On November 12th, 2013, the ags at the Goulbourn Town Hall ew at half-mast from sunrise to sunset. This was in honour of the late Mrs. Betty Hill, whose funeral took place the same day. Betty served as the ďŹ rst Mayor of Goulbourn Township and ofďŹ ciated at the sod-turning ceremony for the Goulbourn Town Hall on November 16th, 1974. Betty also served as a Regional Councillor for the Regional Municipality of Ottawa-Carleton, representing West Carleton, Goulbourn & Rideau from 1994 until 2000. She served with several of my current colleagues during that time; Peter Hume, Diane Holmes and Peter Clark. The ďŹ rst time I heard Betty Hill’s name was during the 1994 Municipal Election when she was seeking to represent Regional Ward 5 against Roly Armitage. I even still have her campaign yer from that election as, for some reason, I collected campaign yers when I was 13 years old. The yer reads: “The Experience when it COUNTS‌.To get the JOB DONE!â€? It goes on to speak to her many roles in Goulbourn: 9 years as Mayor, 9 years as a Regional Councillor, 9 years as the Chairperson of Goulbourn Hydro, 9 years as a member of the Goulbourn Library Board and so on. Betty won that election by just 75 votes and would go on to be acclaimed in the 1997 election, serving the area up until amalgamation. I had the privilege of getting to know Betty when I ďŹ rst ran for Council in 2006. It was a great experience to visit with her, and her husband Don, at that time to seek advice and talk about her time in ofďŹ ce and the issues facing her community. One thing I know of, for certain, is that when Goulbourn ďŹ rst elected Betty to represent them, they elected her for life. She was always concerned about Richmond and the surrounding areas and she made you aware of it. This was never more apparent to me than in 2010 when Betty gave me the gears during a debate in Richmond. She challenged me and questioned my ability to represent Goulbourn, based on her assessment that I wasn’t as present in between the 2006 and 2010 elections. This was an example of Betty representing her community, making sure that if someone was going to represent them, they better be committed to the job. It was a challenge that I gladly accepted. I’d like to thank Betty for her time served representing Goulbourn Township over three decades. There was never a challenge she didn’t accept. She was a strong woman with an even stronger voice. She will be missed.

Low turnout at city budget consultation meeting Laura Mueller

News - Almost 20 of the city’s highest-paid managers and politicians were on hand to face budget questions from a total of five area residents. The low attendance at the Oct. 29 western area public consultation on the draft 2014 budget, held at Holy Trinity Catholic High School, mirrored the lack of interest shown at budget consultations in other areas of the city, including Orléans. “Once again, I see we didn’t have to bring out extra seats,” joked Mayor Jim Watson, gesturing at rows upon rows of mostly empty chairs set up in the auditorium facing a firing line of nine city councillors, staff and the mayor. Watson summed it up the same way he explained the apathy towards the city’s budget

consultations last year. “My experience has been when people aren’t happy with something, they will come out,” Watson. “I don’t think it would serve us very well to have a roomful of people come up and just heap praise on us, either … Most people tend to react when they’re not happy with something.” Indeed, the first member of the public to speak up during the meeting, Cathy Jordan of the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre, delivered an “’atta boy” message to the city. “I really believe when the city has done good work it’s important to come out and say it,” she said. “Congrats on a balanced budget. That’s about leadership in the city.” Rod MacLean, president of the KatimavikHazeldean Community Association, was the only other member of the public to speak dur-

$50,000 more to rural grant program Laura Mueller

News - The city is giving a $50,000 boost to the popular Rural Community-Building Grant Program. The annual budget for the program, which is available to non-profit groups for activities that benefit the broader community, will jump from $60,000 to $110,000 based on strong demand, according to a

city staff report. To offset that increase, the city is axing a rarely-used program to waive building fees for farmers and reducing the budget for another rural grant program. The total amount of money the city gives out for rural grant programs won’t change. Those changes would better reflect the demands of rural non-profit groups and enable more rural organizations to take advantage of funding,

the report says. The $25,000 annual fund was created in 2006 to offset the cost of building permit fees for any building or structure required in order for a farm to comply with the Nutrient Management Act – most often for concrete manure storage tanks. In the last three years, the grant program only received and approved two requests totaling $2,730.

ing the meeting. He wanted to air a point about overcrowding on buses. “It’s not unusual to encounter standing room only from Terry Fox,” MacLean said, adding that the city should be better serving the west end’s employment areas with transit. MacLean was treated to responses from city brass: deputy city manager Nancy Schepers, OC Transpo general manager John Manconi, as well as Kanata councillors Marianne Wilkinson and Allan Hubley. When asked why he felt it was important to make his point during the meeting instead of giving the city that feedback another way, such as by email or to his councillor, MacLean said, “Sometimes things just need to be said in public.” The public meetings are just one way the city gets feedback on the budget, Watson said. People come up to him in the mall and at farm“Given the lack of interest, it is recommended that the program no longer be offered by the city,” a staff report reads. The city is also cutting back on a different rural grant – its Rural Association Partnership Program. The program will

ers’ market to offer praise for the budget. “People like the fact that the tax rate has been kept down. They understand that we can’t cut taxes without cutting services and they’re telling me to stay the course,” Watson said. Watson said the councillors go to their community associations’ meetings and give information and seek feedback on the budget. Not to mention, residents give feedback on the way the city conducts its business year round, Watson said. “I’ve done online chats, I did the mall tour, we’ve done these (public consultations), we have committee meetings,” Watson said. The city of Ottawa even tried holding one of the public budget consultation meetings in the afternoon last year, so people who work in the evenings could attend. Attendance was similarly low: around 20 members of the public showed up.

tive of the Ontario Federation of Agriculture’s local chapter. The proposed change was approved by the same rural councillors, sitting as the agriculture and rural affairs committee, on Nov. 7. Council is set to give the change final consideration on Nov. 13.

City to allow more room to park Laura Mueller

News - Tired of residents widening walkways into driveways and paving over their yards, the city of Ottawa is drafting new rules to allow more room to park at homes in the suburbs. The issue stems from a move to build on smaller lots, even in the outer suburbs. The city’s current rules limit the width of driveways to in front of the garage only – not the main home – and the laneway can’t take up more than 50 per cent of the lot. It sounds like a good policy in theory, say suburban councillors, but in reality it means people are packing their garages with the accoutrements of suburban living and instead parking on the grass of their yards and ďŹ lling up streets by parking their extra vehicles along the adjacent road. In some cases, homeowners create a wide interlock “pathwayâ€? next to their driveways to enlarge the area they are able to use for driveway parking. It causes a lot of neighbourhood strife, councillors say – more than almost any other neighbourhood issue. “In the Nepean days, you never got any complaints about it,â€? said. Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder. Now her ofďŹ ce gets calls about situations where a new homeowner moves in and tries to widen their “pathwayâ€? driveway to match the neighbours who did it before amalgama-

tion. It sparks bylaw battles, Harder said, with neighbours constantly calling 311 on each other. “These are people who were buying nice homes and doing nice things to make their properties ďŹ t into their lifestyles,â€? said Harder, who did the exact same thing to one of her previous homes. “Then you get into this really crappy shouting match.â€? Now the city is drafting a rule to allow homeowners in the suburban area outside the inner edge of the Greenbelt (excluding Bells Corners and Blackburn Hamlet) to widen their driveways to take up a third of the width of the yard. The change would basically allow the kind of driveway widening – using a widened walkway – that was common practice before amalgamation. The change was supported by the majority of people who responded to a public consultation held in June, said Tim Moerman, the city’s planner in charge of the project. The portion of the widened driveway that ends up being in front of the house could be up to 1.8 metres wide and would have to be done in a material that allows rainwater to seep through, such as pavers or turf block. That’s also an esthetic issue, Moerman said. “In the suburbs, the practical reality is that you’re probably going to have two cars,â€? he said. “While we are certainly encouraging people to use transit‌ realistically there is a context that applies to different parts of

Filling ditches may be allowed Laura Mueller

News - The latest frontier for ďŹ xing up post-amalgamation policies? Ditches. Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt wants to tackle ways homeowners – mostly in the city’s rural areas – could legally inďŹ ll roadside ditches in front of their properties. But he’s not talking about letting people take a load of dirt and dump it into the ditch, Moffatt said.

In pre-amalgamation days, homeowners in some former municipalities were allowed to inďŹ ll the deep trenches in front of their homes in a way that still allowed rainwater to drain from the roadway but made it easier to cut grass going down into the ditch and generally make it more attractive. The inďŹ lled ditches were inspected to ensure they would still fulďŹ ll their function and prevent ooding. Now that’s not allowed, even though some homeowners are doing it anyways.



ALWAYS LISTENING AND ACTING ON YOUR CONCERNS As your Councillor, I always welcome your keen input and ideas on how we can sustain and improve Stittsville. Please contact our office anytime by phone at 613-580-2476 or by e-mail at


12 Stittsville News EMC - Thursday, November 14, 2013

Some of the folks who want to ďŹ ll their ditches in are seniors, who say it’s becoming dangerous for them to cut the grass in their ditches, Moffatt said. Some of these people are spending around $5,000 to have their ditch redesigned and ďŹ lled, only to have neighbours call bylaw services. OfďŹ cers come and have them tear the ditch inďŹ ll out, Moffatt said. Moffatt is convinced the altered road ditches don’t cause “actual problems,â€? even though the reason the city banned the practice was the risk of ooding and liability issues if every homeowner on the street did the

same thing. “We allowed these for years and years with no problems,â€? he said. While stormwater management and drainage can be a touchy topic, Moffatt emphasized that there a “different kinds of drainage.â€? Roadside ditches handle a pretty minor amount of water runoff, Moffatt said. The more serious issues with potential ooding mostly relate to other drainage areas, such as rear yards. The councillor is waiting for a response form city staff on what – if anything – can be done about this issue.

town.â€? Harder was pleased the city’s planners took that approach. “It’s just a recognition of our lifestyle,â€? she said. The issue of multiple vehicles and less room to store them is becoming more acute as more teenaged children continue to live at home for longer periods while they attend post-secondary institutions and begin their careers. Stittsville Coun. Shad Qadri’s ward is feeling similar pressures and he said the new rule would take some parked cars off Stittsville’s local streets. “I’m buoyed that city staff is working with the community to ďŹ nd a solution,â€? he said. “At least we’ll get some uniformity.â€? In Stittsville, there are problems with people calling bylaw services if a neighbour’s car is parked on the street past the three-hour limit. Snow removal and snow storage are also problems, he said. But if people illegally expand their driveways to extreme widths, it creates a “concrete jungleâ€? with much less space left for visitors to park along the street. The proposed new rule could also guide how the city approves new developments, Qadri said, which could help tackle the problem in the long term. Residents can read up on the proposed changes at and submit feedback to Moerman by emailing by Dec. 3.

The marketing class, like all business courses, is an elective course in high school. The marketing class is not the only student involvement in helping to promote this upcoming musical. Teacher Marc Beaudry’s woodworking shop class has a student, Patrick Savard, who built wooden signs that are being placed outside the school to promote the musical. One sign is five feet by four feet in size while the other is three feet by four feet. This musical CATS will be presented on stage at Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Stittsville on Wednesday, Nov. 27, Thursday, Nov. 28 and Friday, Nov. 29 at 7 p.m. and again on Saturday, Nov. 30 at 1

p.m. Everyone in the community is welcome to attend. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for seniors and students. Tickets will be available at the door or are available now at the school. CATS, a musical composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber based on “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats” by T.S. Eliot, tells the story of a tribe of cats called the Jellicles and the night they make what is known as “the Jellicle choice” and decide which cat will ascend to the Heaviside Layer and come back to a new life. The renowned song “Memory” was introduced in this musical which opened on Broadway in 1982 and then ran continuously until the year 2000, becoming the second longest running show in Broadway history. CATS has won numerous awards including Best Musical at both the JOHN CURRY/METROLAND Laurence Olivier Awards and the Tony Awards.

Logan Charbonneau

Like most six-year-olds, Logan Charbonneau has a zest for life. He plays hockey with the West Nipissing Sting in his home town of Sturgeon Falls, Ontario and loves to play with Lego blocks. He loves his school, and although he can be shy when he meets new people, he always ends up loving them.

After being seen in CHEO’s Emergency department, Logan was admitted to CHEO’s 4 West medical unit where he was diagnosed with a general failure to thrive. Children who fail to thrive don't receive or are unable to take in, retain, or use the calories needed to gain weight and grow as expected.

Logan was adopted at birth. At three years old, he was diagnosed with both autism spectrum disorder and fetal alcohol spectrum disorder. His parents, Tammy and Jeff, say that two of his major challenges are difficulties with sleeping and eating. For the past three years Logan has been struggling with his diet. “He has no appetite at all,” explains his father. “He would go days without asking for food.” Logan simply has not been eating enough and this has affected his overall health. His growing body needs nourishment to thrive.

Still struggling with his lack of appetite and having lost a significant amount of weight, the CHEO team wanted to find a solution that would help Logan receive the daily nourishment he needs to stay healthy and grow, as well as regain weight — all while letting him live as normal a life as possible. After testing and consultations, Logan had surgery to have a gastrotomy tube (also known as a g-tube) inserted in his stomach. A gastrotomy tube is inserted through the abdomen and delivers nutrition directly to the stomach.

Recently Logan began to complain about pain in his abdomen. For a child who doesn’t complain, this was worrisome. A trip to the local Emergency room in Sturgeon Falls ruled out physical ailments, but the problem didn’t go away. The hospital’s pediatrician suggested Logan should be seen at CHEO.

After a four week stay at CHEO, Logan was well enough to go home to Sturgeon Falls. To prepare for their return back home and the required follow ups, the family connected with CHEO pediatrician, Dr. Ann Rowan-Legg, who knew their doctor back home. Dr. Rowan-Legg provided the support and medical follow up required for a smooth and thorough transition.

Jeff and Tammy were very impressed with the level of care and concern shown at CHEO.

“From the minute we walked into the Emergency department it’s been an amazing experience,” remembers Jeff. “They’re kind. They’re thorough. They ask a lot of questions and they answer all of our questions.”

From the minute we walked into the Emergency department it’s been an amazing experience.

“She not only put the wheels in motion, she made sure it was done at a pace that we’re comfortable with,” says Jeff. “It’s all based on what’s best for Logan.” The medical team consulted with the support services they use in Sturgeon Falls to make sure they were set up to take care of Logan when the family went home. “The only thing we’re concerned about while we’re here is him. The rest is taken care of by CHEO,” says Jeff. Tammy adds, “They’ve been one step ahead.” Logan’s home life will change a little bit but within a few months he should be back to the same active life. Now his parents know that he’ll have all the nourishment he needs. “There have been times in hockey he couldn’t even finish a game because he was too tired,” says Tammy. Teasing Logan, she adds, “Now you can get strong for hockey!” Thanks to CHEO, Logan can look forward to hockey and so much more.

Audience participation at upcoming concert John Curry

News - Traditional Christmas carols like “Deck the Halls” and “O Little Town of Bethlehem” will be among the audience participation songs at the upcoming “A Garland of Carols” concert being presented by the West Ottawa Ladies Chorus. The audience is also going to have the opportunity to exercise its collective voice with the singing of “Ding, Dong, Merrily on High,” “Winter Wonderland,” “Hark the Herald Angels Sing,” and “All on a Silent Night.” But while there is going to be lots of audience singing at the concert, there is also going to be lots of audience listening as well – and what listening! You will hear the West Ottawa Ladies Chorus under the direction of Robert Dueck of Stittsville sing such holiday tunes as “Artist of a Winter Night,” “Beautiful December,” “While by my Sheep,” “The Wexford Carol,” “Sleigh Ride,” “Gesu Bambino,” “Celebrate This Day Together” and more. But this is not all. There will be a host of guest musicians that you will just not want to miss who will be joining the West Ottawa Ladies Chorus for this concert.. One of these guests will be tenor soloist Rory McGlynn who will sing “The Birthday of a King” and “O Holy Night.” He will also join the West Ottawa Ladies Chorus in singing “Gesu Bambino” which has both soloist sections and chorus/soloist sections. Rory is a professional tenor who has sung with Opera York, Opera in Concert, Opera Jeunesse and the Toronto Operetta Theatre, performing around the world including in the United States, Ireland, England, China and Belgium. He is currently artistic director and co-founder of The Capital City Opera, a new

opera company in the area. The full Trinity Hilltop Handbell Choir under the direction of Dvid Chin will be performing at the concert. Two new handbell ensembles under the direction of Stuart Belson of Stittsville will also be performing at the concert. The Trinity Handbell Quartet is an ensemble of four handbell ringers who are also members of the larger Trinity Hilltop Handbell Choir. Playing in a smaller ensemble requires the musicians to employ different skills than those required when ringing with a full handbell choir. The four players must ring 37 bells of a three octave set of handbells. This Trinity Handbell Quartet will play “See Amid the Winter’s Snow” and “Carol of the Bells” at the concert. The other new handbell ensemble is the Bella Duetto Ensemble composed of two ringers, Erica Heiber and Hadiya Huiler. They will also use all 37 bells in playing their two selections at the concert, one of which will be the contemporary tune “Jingle Bell Rock” with the other being Mozart’s “Twinkling Variants.” Other guest musicians at this “A Garland of Carols” will include Ann Reilly on percussion, Sandra Allan on cello and Christine Ritchie on trumpet. And even before the concert starts at 3 p.m., there will be Christmas music filling the St. Paul’s Anglican Church on Young Road in Kanata just north of Hazeldean Road as Christine Ritchie on trumpet and West Ottawa Ladies Chorus accompanist Bonnie MacDiarmid will be providing a selection of Christmas music prior to the start of the concert as the audience waits for its start. This “A Garland of Carols’ Christmas concert presented by the West Ottawa Ladies Chorus will take place on Sunday, Dec. 1 at 3 p.m. at St. Paul’s Anglican Church on Young Road north of Hazeldean Road in Kanata.

Tickets are available now at the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop at the Stittsville Shopping Centre (Shoppers Drug Mart plaza) on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville and at Domenic’s Music Store at 444 Hazeldean Road in

Kanata. Tickets are $15 each for adults. There are a limited number of free admission tickets available for children aged 12 and under. Tickets will also be available at the door on the day of the concert.


Rachel Kuhl of the Trinity Handbell Quartet rings four bells at once as she plays with the group. The Trinity Handbell Quartet will be performing at the “A Garland of Carols” concert presented by the West Ottawa Ladies Chorus on Sunday, Dec. 1.

Fundraising Gymathon by Rhythmic Gymnastics Club Special to the News

Sports - The Kanata Rhythmic Sportive Gymnastics Club is well into another year of training, fitness and fun. The club held its first major event, its annual Gymathon, at the Bridlewood Elementary School in Kanata on Saturday, Nov. 2 and Sunday, Nov. 3. In this event, gymnasts aged 4 to 16 from classes in both Kanata and Stittsville enjoyed an afternoon of friendship, fitness and fun while raising funds for equipment for the Club. In this Gymathon, the gymnasts took part in various exercises requiring flexibility, balance and coordination, all using the essential apparatus prevalent in the sport of rhythmic gymnastics – the ball, hoop, rope and ribbon. Major fundraisers in the Gymathon were Maala Brickley, Branwen Craig and Annika Ives, all of Kanata, in the recreational stream and Haley Miller of Nepean, Britney Han of Barrhaven and Ashley Keefer of Carp in the advanced streams.

The Kanata Rhythmic Sportive Gymnastics Club is a local volunteer rhythmic gymnastics club which offers recreational classes in various Kanata and Stittsville locations. The sport of rhythmic gymnastics combines the grace of ballet and dance with gymnastics movements that require flexibility, concentration and coordination. The Kanata Rhythmic Sportive Gymnastics Club, founded in 1975, offers programming in two developmental streams, recreational and advanced training. Rhythmic gymnastics of a competitive nature began in the 1940’s in the Soviet Union. The first world championships for individual rhythmic gymnasts was held in 1963 in Budapest. Rhythmic gymnastics was added to the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, with Canadian Lori Fung becoming the first rhythmic gymnast to earn an Olympic gold medal. Rhythmic gymnasts must exhibit balance, flexibility, coordination and strength.

No new bus Transitways for Stittsville Laura Mueller

News - The city is squeezing a little more transit into Kanata under its new plan but not light rail. Stittsville, however, wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be getting new bus Transitways as planned in the past. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big problem for Stittsville Coun. Shad Qadri, who said new residents have already been contacting him to express frustration with the change in plans. People moved into the area expecting it to be served by good transit service, he said, and the community design plan allowed for higher densities because of that. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing a disservice to this community,â&#x20AC;? Qadri said. Marilyn Jenkins, past president of the Stittsville Village Association, echoed his comment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have deep, deep disappointment in the west end of the slashing of the BRT (bus rapid transit) system,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Under the last transportation master plan, the developing Fernbank area of Stittsville was slated to get bus-rapid-transit and/or transit-priority measures before 2031. That project was put further down the list in the new plan due to an affordability analysis that indicated it is less urgent and of less benefit then other transit projects, said deputy city manager Nancy Schepers. The roadway space needed for the future bus facilities will still be protected so it can be converted for bus use in the future, after 2031. The city will also reserve dedicated space for buses when it builds a new northsouth arterial road to serve the Fernbank area. Qadri said he is going to approach developers to see if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll front the money needed to build both phases of that road â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including a northern leg to connect to Palladium Drive â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at the same time. Asking developers to advance the funding needed to construct infrastructure is something the city should

be doing more of, Qadri said, adding that the same strategy could be used to fast track the building of busways in Stittsville, too. Even a localized tax levy to fund transit improvements is something the city should consider, the councillor said. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be pushing that issue further during debates about the transportation master plan by the transportation committee on Nov. 15. During a discussion about the draft transportation master plan on Nov.4, city staff revealed an altered plan that would see a bus Transitway in the median of March Road extended farther to end at Solandt Road instead of Carling Avenue. The changes would also add a $25-million new section of Transitway along Highway 417 through an already-built tunnel under the Valour Bridge to connect to Terry Fox station. The trade-off is that the changes remove a plan to create another offramp to separate buses from traffic at

the Eagleson/March/Campeau intersection, which would have cost $30 million. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can build that underpass with no route, or we can build the route with no underpass,â&#x20AC;? said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson. Instead, buses will travel in regular vehicle traffic for the stretch of the Queensway to Corkstown Road, where specialized signals will allow the buses to cross into the median, where they will continue north on March Road on a separate busway until it reaches the Kanata North Business Park. It was important to make the best use possible of a future transit investment for Kanata, Wilkinson said, and it will be of more benefit to extend the new Transitway sections rather than build expensive grade-separated ramps that would only provide a marginal benefit. The new facilities will encourage people to park-and-ride at Terry Fox, which will be important as the area develops with around 3,000 new

homes and new employment areas, including the nearby outlet mall under construction. City of Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson headed off what was potentially the most contentious part of the $3 billion transportation master plan â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the lack of a rail link to the airport â&#x20AC;&#x201C; by sending out a memo before the meeting indicating he and city staff are willing to study what it would take to build that link. The city will include a potential future O-Train link to the airport in an environmental assessment study for a southern extension of the rail line â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with the caveat that it could not compromise peak service to Barrhaven and Riverside South, the mayor wrote. Watson said he will meet with Mark Laroche, president and CEO of the Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport Authority, to â&#x20AC;&#x153;continue these productive and collaborative discussions on how we can build the best transit system we can afford.â&#x20AC;?

kindergarten to grade 12, has 280 students. But this will not happen unless Eva von Jagow receives donations of jewellery to provide a wide selection of the Dec. 7 sale. Any type of jewellery will be welcomed and appreciated. It can be costume jewellery or even children’s jewellery. It doesn’t

New exhibition ‘Anticipating Winter’ at owaa gallery John Curry

News - If you want to see some of winter’s beauty, then a visit to the Ottawa West Arts Association (owaa) gallery in the lobby of the Goulbourn Recreation Complex should be in your plans. That’s because the new exhibition of art, entitled “Anticipating Winter,” which began its two month run at the owaa gallery last Saturday, features a number of works featuring winter scenes. But there’s more than just winter scenes on display on the gallery walls in this exhibition, as a number of artists have used an artist’s traditional artistic license to enter works that have no obvious, particular connection to winter other than the fact that Canadians always seem to be anticipating winter, no matter what the season of the year. “The Morning After,” an oil by Patrick Mason, shows snow-covered branches topped with a blue sky, just like those that happen so often in the frosty winter. It’s a scene, he says, from the backyard of his Stittsville home and not a scene from Algonquin Park which is the setting for many of his works. Trudy Daley’s acrylic “Winterwonderland” shows a most traditional and iconic scene – a horse drawn sleigh ride along a snowbank-laden trail with your Canadian evergreen forest in the background. Pure Canadiana winter! Artist Sheila Turner-Whalen, in her mixed media work “Winter Reflections,” has captured the feeling of winter’s “cold” with her blue/white ice scene backed by snow-covered evergreens. You JOHN CURRY/METROLAND shiver as you look at the painting as it evokes the Ottawa West Arts Association (owaa) artists Patrick Mason, left, and Kat McClure, right, together adjust Patrick’s oil painting “The icy cold of winter.

Morning After” which is one of the works of art now on display in the “Anticipating Winter” exhibition at the owaa gallery in the foyer of the Goulbourn Recreation Complex on Shea Road in Stittsville.

Art exhibition Continued from page 35

And speaking of evoking thoughts of winter, Louise Barker has captured a homey scene with her oil painting “Window to Winter,” showing a female hugging a big dog as they both sit looking out a window at a scene of falling snow. You just want to be a third member of this warm, hugging scene. “Night Watch,” an oil by Betty E. Sullivan, has an owl perched on a branch, with flecks of winter snow all around this watchman of the night – and a wintry night at that. In some respects, although there is not a trace of snow in it, Michael Goguen’s large oil on canvas entitled “The Quest of the Maji” may be the most seasonal piece in the exhibition, given the traditional connection of the three Kings or Magi to Christmas in the Christian tradition. Like many of Michael Goguen’s works, this is a spectacularly colourful painting, with a plethora of colours including orange, green and yellow, showing the three Magi on a path leading to a big temple with a city in the background, all found beneath a shining star in the sky. “Lost Rays,” an acrylic by Vera Van Baaren, depicts a half dozen tree trunks throwing their shadows into the painting’s foreground as the sloping sun shines between them. Shadows is also a theme in Kat McClure’s abstract mixed media work as she has named the work “Shadows.” And speaking of abstract works, a huge acrylic called “Sundance” by Soraya Silvestri (“zizi”) definitely catches the eye with its predominantly yellow vertical strokes. It’s bright and cheerful which winter can be at times. “Resoluteness,” a photo by Bev Lafortune, features a tall, ice cream cone-like elm tree, backed by a dark sky. Another photograph, this one in black and white, that tells a lot is “Lac Leman,” by Sylvie Sabourin which shows an island in a lake, casting its shadow into the watery foreground as a small rowboat/sailboat goes by the island. “Majestic Barn,” a photograph by Josef Pittner, showing a small old barn in a rocky setting with a fence in the foreground and trees in the background, depicts what many would view as a typical Canadian rural scene. Mark Grasza’s oil “Ottawa Canal” is a summer scene, no doubt, showing the Rideau Canal with the Parliament Buildings in the distance. What makes this painting special is the images of Prince William and Princess Kate that are the focal point of the work. Photographer John Edkins has a black and white photograph in this exhibition. Entitled “Amsterdam Train Station,” the photo shows train vehicles at the passenger platform, with an elaborate steel structure overhead. Josie Braden’s pastel “Oak’s Garden, Niagara Falls” shows a path running through a myriad of foliage of various colours like green and red. Two entries in this exhibition that must be seen are Stephen Harrison’s “Rideau Centre light,” a black and white photograph on his typical dye-infused aluminum that shows that the simplest of objects can become a magical scene in the hands of a talented artist or, in this case, a talented photographer. “Rideau Centre Light” shows a light fixture, which we presume is at the Rideau Centre in downtown Ottawa, but one which stands out because it is surrounded by black. Words do not do it justice. And Stittsville artist Gerald Smith has entered in this exhibition a masterful depiction of the historic German passenger airship Hindenburg which he has called “The Hindenburg Over Cape Sable, May 6, 1937.” This oil on canvas shows the Hindenburg over a lighthouse with a blue sky in the background. The size of the Hindenburg is conveyed by the fact that the airship’s form takes up about half of the painting. This exhibition “Anticipating Winter” is running at the owaa gallery in the lobby of the Goulbourn Recreation Complex on Shea Road in Stittsville from now through to Friday, Jan. 10, 2014.

He also hopes that those who have never been to the Main Street Café might take this occasion to give it a try and experience its homey atmosphere and good food. He admits that he had to vary a little from his pledge a year ago to leave things as they were regarding the Cafe’s menu. He had had to increase prices minimally due to the costs of inflation. But basically the menu has remained the same although he has

Rotary Club is looking for youth exchange student Special to the News

News - The Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville is looking for a high school student to sponsor in the Rotary youth exchange program. The student, preferably now in grade 10 or 11, would spend the 2014-2015 school year abroad, starting in August 2014. The deadline for applications for this Rotary youth exchange program is Friday, Nov. 22. Applications should be submitted to Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville member Jas Michalski at For more information, check out the Rotary District 7040 Youth Exchange at or call Jas Michal-

ski at 613-836-9597. The Rotary Youth Exchange involves more than 8,000 students each year. The objective of Rotary Exchange Programs is to foster world peace and international understanding. Participants experience first hand the challenges and accomplishments of other countries. A long term Rotary Exchange students spends one academic year living in another country, usually with two or more host families. These Rotary accredited families are volunteers who welcome and care for the exchange student and introduce the exchange student to the culture and lifestyle of the host country. Exchange students learn another language, experience different foods, study different sub-

jects and enjoy a new way of living in another culture. Students who become Rotary Youth Exchange participants are aged 15 to 17 years who have demonstrated leadership in their school and community, who are flexible and willing to try new things, who are open to cultural differences and who can serve as an ambassador for their own country. The countries where Rotary exchanges take place are re-evaluated every year. This year students from the local Rotary District are exchange students in Japan, Peru, Brazil, Turkey, Poland, Denmark, Italy, France and Mexico. Typically students and their families are ex-

pected to cover expenses such as round trip airfare, travel insurance, travel documents, spending money and emergency funds. It does not matter whether parents are members of a Rotary Club or not as the program is open to all students. A student can choose the country involved in the exchange within certain limits. A student is asked to select five preferred countries and a student usually gets one of these five choices. Although it is called an exchange program, parents are not required to host a visiting student as part of the program. Many do choose to do so but there is no requirement to do this. All applicants to the program must be sponsored by a local Rotary Club such as the Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville. Jas Michalski is the contact for the Rotary Club of OttawaStittsville for this program.

When he took over a year ago, Marc also had a goal of wanting to change the interior appearance of the Café a little but to make sure that the new look would reflect the community. He has done this by hanging numerous framed photographs of Stittsville scenes on the Café’s wall above the booths. And speaking of the booths, they have all been re-stained for a new, darker look. There are also new chairs and new carpeting in the restaurant. Marc’s next move is to renovate the washrooms. And with that, he feels that everything will be truly shipshape in the restaurant. But for now – Marc is looking forward to Saturday, Nov. 23, seeing it as an opportunity for everyone in the community, both regular customers and new customers, to visit the restaurant and find out why it is the number one breakfast spot in the west end of the city of Ottawa. And after this special anniversary event at the Café on Saturday, Nov. 23, Marc will be getting ready for the next Saturday, Nov. 30 when Main Street Café will have an entry in the annual Christmas Parade of Lights in Stittsville. He will be giving out packages for hot chocolate as well as free children’s breakfasts. Recipients will be able to visit the restaurant and the hot chocolate will be made and the breakfast provided free for the child.

Husky Howler: Canadian champions Eva von Jagow Special to the News

Sacred Heart Catholic High School students Rebecca Leslie and Amanda Titus are Canadian champions. Both played for Team Ontario Red in the U18 Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s National Hockey Championship in Calgary last weekend, winning the gold medal game against Team Ontario Blue last Sun-

day. They are both now Canadian champions. The Sacred Heart Catholic High School junior boys soccer team made it all the way to the National Capital championship game, playing Mother Teresa Catholic High School in the ďŹ nal on Thursday, Nov. 7. Unfortunately, the Sacred Heart Huskies lost the game by a 1-0 score. But what a great season for the team!

Sacred Heart Catholic High School inStittsville

Grade 11 Sacred Heart student Taylor Cavanagh is raising money to help homeless youth in the city of Ottawa. Her goal is to raise $3,200 which is enough money to house a homeless youth for a year. The Youth Services Bureau organizes this initiative because in Ottawa alone there are over 1,000 homeless youth. Taylor will be going to Ottawa city hall this coming Thursday, Nov. 14 to sleep out in tents, along with many other individuals and teams from across the city who are participating in the event. The purpose of the event is to raise awareness and also money for youth homelessness in Ottawa. Taylor and others have already started raising money for the cause with a pancake breakfast that students purchased last week. It proved popular with Sacred Heart students and reminded them how lucky they are in their lives.

Flu shot clinic in Richmond; also shots available at pharmacies Special to the News

News - It’s flu shot time. A flu shot clinic held by Ottawa Public Health is being held this Saturday, Nov. 16 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Richmond Memorial Community Centre (arena) at the corner of Perth Street and Huntley Road in Richmond. It is one of a number of flu shot immunization clinics that Ottawa Public Health is holding at various locations around the city. Health officials recommend that people not only get the flu shot as it is up to 80 percent effective in preventing the flu provided the vaccine is a good match to the circulating flu strains in a particular. The flu season is considered to run from the fall through the spring but the exact time when large spikes in flu illness will occur is unpredictable. This year it is easier than ever to get the flu shot which the province provides free to anyone six months of age or older who lives, works or attends school in Ontario. That’s because more and more pharmacies are providing

these free flu shots. Last year, over 600 pharmacies in the province delivered free flu shots. This year trained pharmacists at close to 2,000 pharmacies will be administering the vaccine, with over 130 pharmacies in the city of Ottawa participating in the free flu shot program. Local pharmacies which are offering the free flu shots this year include the pharmacy at Brown’s Your Independent Grocer at 1251 Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville; Shoppers Drug Mart at 1300 Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville; Shoppers Drug Mart at 5709 Hazeldean Road in Stittsville; Stittsville Sobeys pharmacy at 6315 Hazeldean Road at Carp Road in Stittsville; Stittsville IDA Pharmacy at 1250 Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville; and Richmond IDA Pharmacy at 6179 Perth Street in Richmond. It should be noted that pharmacists are not authorized to administer the vaccine to children under the age of five. Flu shots are also available through doctors’ offices and workplace clinics. It is estimated that every year Ontario’s flu shot program prevents 30,000 visits to hospital

emergency rooms and 200,000 visits to doctors’ offices. Symptoms of the flu include runny/stuffy nose, cough, fever, muscle aches and fatigue. These symptoms usually begin from one to four days after exposure to the virus. The rates of flu infection are highest in children aged 5 to 9 years old but rates of serious illness and death are highest in children under two years of age and in adults 65 years of age and over, as well as with anyone with underlying medical conditions. The flu each year can cause an estimated 1,000 hospitalizations and about 300 deaths. In Canada, almost all flu cases occur between November and April. Most influenza occurs, in fact, in a 10 to 16 week period that usually starts in December but that can start at any time from late October to mid-February. Medical officials state that everyone six months of age or older can benefit from getting a flu shot each year and that early immunization is the most effective way of preventing the flu.

Ottawa Public Health gives these tips to avoid getting and transmitting the flu virus: wash your hands with soap and water or use hand sanitizer; cover your coughs and sneezes with your arm, not your hand; avoid crowds, public gatherings and stay at home if you are sick; and do not visit hospitalized patients if you are experiencing flu-like symptoms. Individuals who have flu-like symptoms like a fever, cough, severe headache and/or chills are advised to rest, drink lots of fluids, take basic pain or fever relievers, take a warm bath, gargle with a glass of warm water or suck on hard candy or lozenges; and avoid alcohol and tobacco. Those at greater risk if they experience flu symptoms include pregnant women, those who have a chronic health problem that requires regular medical attention, the elderly or frail, those who have an illness or who are receiving treatments for diseases like diabetes, cancer or HIV/AIDS that might affect the immune system, and a child under three months of age who has a fever.

Former Goulbourn mayor Betty Hill dies News - Betty Hill, one of the most colourful, controversial and well known politicians in the Ottawa area in the latter part of the 20th century, has passed away. Her political career spanned three decades, beginning when she successfully ran for the position of reeve of Richmond in the early 1970’s. She had been writing a newspaper column “The Richmond Rooster” before entering the political wars. Early on in her term as Richmond reeve, the Richmond arena, built in 1949, was declared unsafe and a new arena, the current Richmond Memorial Community Centre arena, was built. With the forced amalgamation of the villages of Richmond and Stittsville with rural Goulbourn township in 1974, Betty became one of four candidates to seek the mayoralty of the new amalgamated Goulbourn township. She emerged as the winner and went on to be mayor of Goulbourn for four terms, through to 1982. During this time, the new Goulbourn municipal building at Stanley’s Corners was built

and opened in 1975. She was also involved in the negotiations which led to the creation of the city of Kanata in 1978, with the Glen Cairn area of Goulbourn forming part of the new city. Piped sewer and water services were extended to Stittsville in the late 1970’s during her tenure as mayor. In addition, Goulbourn, including Stittsville, Richmond and Munster, got its first OC Transpo express bus service when she was mayor. The Iber Road Business Park also got its start when she was mayor. Following her electoral defeat by Anton Wytenburg in 1982, Betty eventually returned to school and became a lawyer. She returned to the political scene in 1994 when she became the elected regional councillor for the western area of the Ottawa-Carleton region, a position that she held until regional government was eliminated with the creation of the new city of Ottawa in 2001. Betty Hill died on Monday, Nov. 4, 2013 at the age of 76. She had been residing

at an extended care home in Ottawa to recuperate from hip surgery. She is survived by her husband Donald, her children Marjorie (Michael O’Connor), Patti (Bernie Fee), Donald

(Karole) and Randy and five grandchildren. She is also survived by two great-grandchildren as well as by her sister Tricia Meagher. She was predeceased by her parents and by her sister Jackie.

Visitation was held at the Kelly Funeral Home on Eagleson Road in Kanata last Monday. A Mass of Christian Funeral was held at St. Philip’s Catholic Church in Richmond on Tuesday, Nov. 12 at 1 p.m.

Interment will take place in the spring. In memoriam donations to the Canadian Diabetes Association or to the University of Ottawa Heart Institute would be appreciated by the family.


The Canadian and city of Ottawa flags are flying at half mast at the front of the Goulbourn Town Hall (the former Goulbourn municipal building) on Tuesday, Nov. 12 as a mark of respect for the late Betty Hill who was a reeve of Richmond, a mayor of Goulbourn Township and an Ottawa Carleton regional councillor during a political career spanning three decades. Mrs. Hill died on Monday, Nov. 4 with her funeral taking place on Tuesday, Nov. 12 at St. Philip Catholic Church in Richmond.

Volunteers needed to help with parade Special to the News


Christmas lights in Village Square Al Zoschke of the Stittsville District Lions Club is up a stepladder as he helps place Christmas lights in the trees at Village Square Park in Stittsville last Sunday. The lights will be officially turned on for the Christmas season following the annual Christmas Parade of Lights in Stittsville on Saturday, Nov. 30.

News – There is a desperate need for volunteers to help with Stittsville’s upcoming Christmas Parade of Lights. The city of Ottawa requires that the Stittsville Village Association (SVA), organizer of this annual Parade of Lights along Stittsville Main Street, station volunteers at every blocked off side street and major commercial parking lot entrance along the parade route. These volunteers are to ensure that the barricades keeping traffic off Stittsville Main Street at parade time are respected by motorists. To do this, the SVA requires an army of volunteers. But so far there are not nearly enough who have come forward to help in this way. And being a volunteer at these barricades is not that bad. In fact, it has the advantage that it provides the volunteers with a great viewing spot for the parade – right there along the route, with a clear view. In addition, it is an opportunity for those with high school aged children to do something together with them with the added bonus that the students will receive credit for volunteer hours, something needed to graduate. Volunteers looking after these barricades are provided with a safety vest by the SVA to ensure their protection and safety and also to identify them as persons of authority. The only requirement is that the person be at least 16 years of age if not accompanied by an adult. There is also a need for volunteers

for other tasks related to the parade. The Christmas Parade of Lights will be taking place on Saturday, Nov. 30 at 6 p.m. this year. The SVA already has received commitments and/or expressions of interest from a number of float entries. However, more floats are needed and welcome. For more information about entering a float in this year’s Christmas Parade of Lights, contact Marilyn Jenkins at 613-836-5075 or via email at jenkinsdm1@rogers. com or Tanya Hein at 613-686-1842 or via email at paradeoflights@ . It is expected that this year’s Parade of Lights will be as large or hopefully even larger than last year’s parade which attracted more than 60 floats, all moving along as a lighted convey between the riverbanks of spectators lined up along many parts of Stittsville Main Street. The parade route runs along Stittsville Main Street, starting at the Ottawa Carleton District School Board depot parking lot and moving southward along the street, through the Stittsville Main Street/Abbott Street intersection where there is always a public address commentary about the floats and on to the Carleton Cathcart Street intersection where the parade ends. Those who would like to volunteer to help looking after a parade route barricade should contact SVA director Tanya Hein at 613-686-1842 or via email at paradeoflights@travnet. org or Marilyn Jenkins at 613-8365075 or via email at jenkinsdm1@ .

News - Extending light rail to Orléans, Bayshore and Bowesville by 2023 is the future of transportation in Ottawa, says Mayor Jim Watson. In a speech outlining the transit portion of the new transportation master plan, Watson said extending rail to each end of the city with 35 kilometres of new rail and 19 new stations will cost $2.5 billion. The extensions will get done in tandem, much earlier than the city’s original projection of 2031 and will help all areas of the city capitalize on the benefits of the Confederation Line downtown, Watson said. “We could go slowly and build each segment of the network over a protracted period of time, suffering wasteful and disruptive conversions along the way,” he said. “Or we can move ahead and use public transit to help define how we grow.” Funding from the federal and provincial governments will be needed, the mayor said. Having a clear plan that outlines the cost-sharing needed will ensure success, Watson said. The draft plan will be considered and potentially altered by the transit commission on Oct. 24 and the transportation committee on Nov. 15. Council has the final say on Nov. 26. The big winner in the mayor’s LRT announcement was Orléans, which will get four new stations: St. Joseph, Jeanne D’Arc, Orléans Drive, and Place d’ Orléans. When completed by 2023, the 90 per cent of Orléans residents will live within five kilometres of the rapidtransit line, Watson said. “We want to work with the Government of Canada to locate jobs in the east and to attract employers there to support balanced growth,” Watson said. “Bringing the benefits of light rail east to Place d’Orléans will make that difference.” “We’ve always said we needed it sooner than later,” said Orléans Coun. Bob Monette. Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais said he had a suspicion that rail to Orléans would be part of the announcement, given the hoopla the mayor made over the speech. “He doesn’t give big speeches very often and he’s often been criticized for not having a lot of vision and I think today has really changed that,” Blais said. “We have a three-pronged approach: more people working in Orléans, a wider highway and a train,” Blais said. “Commute times are going to go down.” Rail will be a “game changer” for because it will provide a convenient way for people to get to Orléans and therefore encourage the development of unused employment lands along the 174 corridor. Blais and Monette are convinced the train will not only make it easier for commuters to head downtown, but also for people in the core and west end to come east to Orléans. Extending light rail to Orléans is expected to cost $500 million. The announcement is a double win for the east end because it means bus Transitway lanes on Ottawa Road 174 will be freed up and likely converted as new lanes for traffic, Blais said. The mayor said a study will consider converting those lanes for use by carpoolers. Light rail will be extended as far west as the expanded Bayshore Shopping Centre, with a southwest spur to Baseline Station and Algonquin College. From Lincoln Fields, the line will split off towards Bayshore south of Woodroffe High School. The Connaught tunnel will be expanded past the existing Pinecrest bus garage and then skirt the Roman Avenue area to run on the city’s right-of-way north of the Queensway before stopping at a new Queensview Station. It is estimated that the Bayshore rail extension would cost $400 million. A new pedestrian bridge over Highway 417 will connect the Pinecrest Shopping Centre and Ikea to light rail. The line will continue with another stop west of Pinecrest before ending at Bayshore. Transit past Bayshore will continue with a new bus Transitway extension from March Road to Terry Fox Drive. “It means that people in Kanata will no longer be in mixed traffic on the Queensway at that location, which will make the travel a lot better,” said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson. “There has been no good transit to

the west, which is why there are fewer people using it.” While rail is coming all the way to Orléans, Kanata will get dedicated busways first instead of LRT. Wilkinson said she would have preferred to see rail extended east and west inside the Greenbelt first before deciding which direction to cross over the Greenbelt – probably a decade from now. The plan also includes a southwest rail extension from Tunney’s Pasture to Baseline at a cost of $980 million. Connecting the college to the city’s other post-secondary institutions that are already on the light rail line – the University of Ottawa, Carleton University and La Cité collégiale – will create “an education powerhouse in the capital,” Watson said. The city’s south end will get a rail extension of a different kind. The city is looking to build a $100 million extension of the O-Train line to Bowesville. The expansion will include five new stations at Glad-

stone, Walkley, South Keys, Leitrim and Bowesville with park-and-ride lots at the south end of the system to make it accessible to Riverside South commuters and residents from the rural area. That’s in addition to $59 million the city is already spending to double the existing O-Train tracks to provide more frequent service. Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches said the extension moves south-end communities forward after the cancellation of the city’s previous north-south light rail plan under the previous council. Converting the heavy rail of the O-Train line to light rail to match the rest of the system could be considered in the future, Desroches said. A rail spur to the airport was deemed too costly and of less benefit than providing light-rail transit to commuters, but the city does plan to expand the Airport Parkway to add carpool and taxi lanes from Brookfield to Hunt Club. The expanded transit system would also come with a price tag of $500 million for new trains and expanded storage facilities.

Better suburbs? Laura Mueller

News - A struggle over where to put cars in increasingly dense suburbs dominated a recent discussion about building better suburbs. The city wants to guide the building of more complete suburban communities that make efficient use of utilities while serving areas that are intensifying the fastest, said Lee Ann Snedden, the city’s manager of planning policy development and urban design. “This is where we are getting our growth … The suburbs are unique,” Snedden said. “We need to figure out what’s the best way to make it liveable for people.” Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder said in the past that development standards for the urban area have been applied to the suburban area, but now the city is looking to be more creative. While city planning exercises like community design plans look at development and the size of homes, building better suburbs is about “all the other stuff,” Snedden said – schools, parks, utilities, trees and parking. Neil Thomson, director of planning for the Kanata Beaverbrook Community Association, said he wasn’t impressed with the Building Better Suburbs process. He attended one of three concurrent meetings held in Kanata, Barrhaven and Orléans on Oct. 17. “It’s not about complete communities,” he said. “It’s about how many homes and cars we can crush into a small area.” Thompson said the city

should take a more holistic approach to building suburban communities. “They’re asking us to look at solving individual problems in isolation,” he said. “Let’s look at a suburb as a whole community.” Andrea Sells, an Old Barrhaven resident who previously worked in real estate, said the dense new suburbs being built now are becoming “simply unliveable.” People often don’t have a good sense of the size of the home they are buying before it’s built and once it’s constructed and people can see how small it is, it’s very difficult to resell, she said. “All those plans look wonderful and then once you move in, it’s smaller than you envisioned,” Sells said. People shouldn’t discount market demand for those compact homes, said Sheldon Dattenberger, a consultant from Delcan who is working on the project for the city. “If there wasn’t a market for them, they wouldn’t build them,” he said. But smaller homes and smaller lots come with parking headaches, participants said. Donna Hinde, the consultant from the Planning Partnership who ran the session, asked if the participants thought providing more rear laneways would be a solution to the parking problem, but that didn’t go over well with participants. “They are an eyesore and a haven for criminal activity,” said Richard Stead, president of the Cedarhill Community Association. “It’s something that goes back to the horse-and-bug-

gy era. Why do we need to have them in the suburbs?” Barrhaven resident Don Halpenny’s concern was over maintenance of the lanes – whether it’s the city’s responsibilities or the residents have to come together to devise and fund a maintenance plan for things like snow clearing. Harder said it’s common for people to park on their lawns or widen their “walkways” into ad hoc driveways, she said. Daniel Coates lives in Fraser Fields and said the on-street parking situation in his neighbourhood is getting out of control. Residents park on the street to leave their driveways open for children to play and park their vehicles along both sides of his street instead, which creates a narrow and unsafe street that even snowplows can’t traverse, he said. “You drive through these new neighbourhoods and it’s like driving through a parking lot,” Stead said. Coates was intrigued by Hinde’s suggestion of choosing one side of the street for parking and potentially switching sides on a scheduled timeframe, such as every two months. That’s done in many Ontario municipalities, she said. The matter of where to put sidewalks is closely tied to the parking issue, participants said. Brad Nixon, a Findlay Creek resident, said he hopes the city will encourage the placement of sidewalks adjacent to driveways. “If they build a sidewalk partway up your driveway and leave a boulevard space between the road and the sidewalk you can’t park two cars in the driveway,” he said. “People are forced to park on the street.” Many participants recognized the value of sidewalks, but con-

cluded they shouldn’t be everywhere. “On a major roadway you’d be crazy not to have them,” said Eric Stephen, a resident of Old Barrhaven. “In an ideal world they should be on all streets,” but that’s probably not practical or affordable, he added. Coates said putting sidewalks everywhere would not only cramp yards, it would drive up taxes. Dattenberger, who is advising the city on infrastructure matters, said the goal is to balance the construction of infrastructure like sidewalks by putting them places they will actually be used. Claude Gagné, a director with the Convent Glen-Orléans Wood Community Association, said she would like to see some of the elements for new suburbs retrofitted into existing communities like Convent Glen. “We would like the city to consider older suburbs, where in fact, there are still things that need to be added to make them more vibrant neighbourhoods,” she said. “We have big trees, we have nice parks, but they’re completely empty.” She supported elements like splash pads going into newer neighbourhoods to make sure the parks are used, but doesn’t want the city to forget about older suburbs who could also benefit from development. The consultation will continue for 10 months. Early in the new year, the city will release proposed draft standards based on the feedback. The plan is expected to be considered by the city’s planning committee next June. Comments can be submitted to the city by emailing city planner Stan Wilder at stanley.

Will Someone Fight For Me? “I was placed in foster care a few years ago – my mom could not properly take care of me. Since being in care, I have moved from foster home to foster home. I push everyone away. I scream a lot and say horrible things. I throw stuff and make even the nicest times miserable for everyone. You see, I was once close with my biological parents and where has that gotten me? I don’t want to be hurt again, so I trust no one. I know what I do isn’t right, but I’m angry”. The Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa (CASO) is looking for a family ready to make a lifetime of difference. This talented little girl, identified as Emma, loves to sign and compose music. She is a straight A student who receives nothing but positive feedback from her teachers. What Emma needs more than anything is for someone to stand by her. She needs someone who is ready for a challenge and who understands that she doesn’t need to be “fixed”, but rather, needs to be loved. She will act out and she will most likely push you away. You see, Emma is only 12 and she has yet to have someone committed to her. She has yet to experience forgiveness and trust. She has yet to have someone stand by her and support her, no matter. Are you someone ready to fight for Emma? More importantly, are you ready to fight with her? If you or someone you know may be interested in adopting Emma, please contact Anik Whyte at 613-747-7800 ext 2226 or email anik.whyte@casott. Make a difference in the life of this child!

Petition presented Richmond Legion: Poster and literary contest against wind farms Wendy Ryan

Special to the News

John Curry

News - Richmond resident Hank Helleman does want to see wind farms in the North Gower area. Attending the November meeting of the Board of Directors of the Richmond Village Association on Tuesday evening, Nov. 5, he made a pitch for opposing the proposed energy-generating windmills to be erected in the North Gower area and deposited a petition which can be signed by those opposing this proposed North Gower project. He said that the North Gower proposal involves eight to ten windmills that will be 600 feet high each. He pointed out that Richmond would be within five kilometers of the nearest of these windmills as the crow flies. He said that the petition expresses opposition to having such wind farms near North Gower or Richmond, noting that there are medical problems caused by such installations. He said that the windmills are not attractive and will destroy “the beauty of the area.” Mr. Helleman said that the province is already losing money on the sale of its excess power and so these windmills are not needed for power generation. Mr. Helleman left the petition with those at the RVA meeting. A suggestion was made to get the petition on display in local stores.

News – Again this year the Richmond Legion is holding a Remembrance poster and literary contest. New this year will be a video section of the competition. Cash prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place in the various categories in the contest.

RVA newsletter thanks to Kelly’s Special to the News

News - The Richmond Village Association (RVA) will be mailing out an information flyer to households in Richmond and Munster. The flyer will outline the activities and events that are organized by the RVA as well as include information about the RVA website, a calendar of events and a “thank you” listing of RVA sponsors. The newsletter is being made possible thanks to the generosity and sponsorship of Kelly Funeral Homes which is looking after the cost of the printing of the newsletter as well as three other such newsletters

which are being planned throughout the coming year. Total value of this sponsorship is over $6,000. The RVA, for its part, must purchase the paper for the newsletter and also pay the mailing costs. At its last meeting, the RVA executive approved an expenditure of $600 to cover the cost of the paper and mailing of this upcoming newsletter. RVA volunteers will also have to fold the printed newsletter and bundle the newsletters in 50’s or 100’s for handling by Canada Post. The RVA hopes to have this newsletter out by December.

Craft Fair and more Special to the News

News - It’s a craft fair but also a lot more. Richmond Public School will be the site of a craft fair this Saturday, Nov. 16, running from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. But if you are looking for used books, baked goods or a little bite to eat, this event is for you as well because besides the craft fair, there is going to be a used book sale, a bake sale and a canteen, all held in conjunction with the craft fair. Everyone in the community is welcome to attend this craft fair event which is being organized by the Parent Council at Richmond Public School. Proceeds from this craft fair will be going towards the Richmond Public School Council’s goal this year of raising $40,000 for new playground equipment at the school. A large slide was removed from the existing play structure last year and what is left of the play structure is old. A new play structure is needed. The craft fair this Saturday is just one of several fundraising events that the Richmond Public School Council is holding this year to raise funds for new playground equipment at the school.

Open house about draft flood plain mapping through Stittsville. Poole Creek begins in the wetland west of Stittsville and flows through Stittsville, going under Stittsville Main Street just south of Beverly Street and then continuing eastward, going through the Amberwood Village golf course before flowing under Hazeldean Road near Sweetnam Drive and then proceeding northeastward to empty into the Carp River. Feedmill Creek also empties into the Carp River after beginning west of Carp Road and north of Hazeldean Road. It flows under the

Carp Road at the Timbermere subdivision and continues eastward before crossing under Highway 417 just west of Huntmar Drive and then emptying into the Carp River. Members of the public are being encouraged to attend this open house to provide comments on the draft flood plain mapping. This year the MVCA has completed the first phase of a five year commitment to undertake flood risk mapping studies on water courses in the city of Ottawa under MVCA jurisdiction. The MVCA has jurisdiction over the Poole

Social interaction helps healthy living Laura Mueller

News - Urban psychologist Suzanne Crowhurst Lennard delivered a warning against a proliferation of condo towers during a recently-delivered speech. Suburbs aren’t the only isolating environment for people to live in,

she told a crowd gathered for her Urban Forum talk at city hall. Living in towers can be very lonely, too. “People who have neighbours and acquaintances they meet daily don’t get sick as often as those who are isolated,” Crowhurst Lennard said. “The social fabric we’ve invented is what is helping keep us well.” Crowhurst Lennard is an architect but her work focuses on how architecture and city-making affects social interaction, health and quality of life. Much of her research involves how to make cities and spaces more liveable for children and seniors. Public spaces like squares and parks are the most important factor, especially for children, she said. It’s where they learn about social interaction, social roles and empathy for people who are different from them, she said. “We need these kinds of places

where an intergenerational community can develop,” Crowhurst Lennard said. Children and teens are spending an increasing amount of time alone, she said – an average of 3.5 hours a day for teens, which is more time than they spend with family and friends. So it’s not surprising that social anxiety disorder is also on the rise, she said. “Shyness is epidemic,” she said. “This medical problem has now come about because young people aren’t getting enough socialization.” A similar effect is happening in the elderly population, Crowhurst Lennard said. “Both extremes cause social isolation,” she said. Cities need a mix of public spaces to boost people’s health and happiness, she said. True public spaces, like public squares, are key, but semi-private

Creek and Feedmill Creek watercourses since both drain into the Carp River which comes under the watershed guidance of the MVCA. Conservation Authorities use such flood plain mapping to administer the use and treatment of hazardous lands. The public open house on Thursday, Nov. 14 will run from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the hall at the Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena in Stittsville. For more information about this meeting, please call 613-253-0006.

spaces like outdoor cafes and farmers’ markets are also important “hosts” in the public realm. That’s fine, Michael Mizzi, the city’s chief of development review, said during the discussion. But he said the conundrum is homebuyers are still making the comparatively less-healthy choice of living in the suburbs. “All these people who live on quaint cul-de-sacs in suburbia travel to these urban squares on vacations to Europe,” he said. “Yet they choose to live where they live. “(Developers) are only building what the people want,” he said. Crowhurst Lennard said the narrative is shifting away from the suburbs being sold as “the” place to raise a family, but there is still progress to be made in ensuring urban cores have the facilities and spaces people need. But the urban fabric around those places is what is needed to support life in public spaces, Crowhurst Lennard said. Dense development is key, but it’s

also ideal for shops, restaurants and other types of businesses to be mixed into the residential areas, Crowhurst Lennard said. She promotes something like the Paris model, where most buildings are six storeys tall, but they are packed together with shops on the ground floors. Ensuring businesses and services are located where people live promotes independent mobility for all ages – both children and seniors can get around more easily when they don’t have to travel far. That also means traffic calming and promoting walking and cycling are needed in order to make that mobility work. Gentrification can also have a negative impact on health if it prices lower-income residents out of their neighbourhoods, said Crowhurst Lennard. The same public spaces that help keep people healthy also make the area more desirable – and therefore, more expensive. “It’s a problem no city has actually solved,” she said.

Help out by selling 50/50 tickets at Ottawa Senators games Special to the News

News - Main Street Community Services is located in part of the former Stittsville Public School (now Frederick Banting Alternate Program school) on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville. Main Street Community Services in Stittsville depends heavily on fundraising to carry on with its programs and services for children and youth with special needs and their families. One of Main Street Community Servicesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; main fundraising initiatives is volunteering for the Sens Foundation to sell 50/50 tickets at Ottawa Senators home games at Canadian Tire Place. Over the years, Main Street Community Services, which is a not-for-profit registered charity, has raised a lot of money through this arrangement with the Sens Foundation, thanks to the efforts of a core volunteer group. But this season this volunteer help has not materialized. And this is a serious predicament because

Main Street Community Services is in danger of losing this fundraising arrangement with the Sens Foundation. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because as a charity involved with the Sens Foundation 50/50 ticket program, Main Street Community Services is required to provide a certain number of ticket sellers for the games to which it has been assigned. If the number of volunteers is not kept up, Main Street Community Services could be eliminated from the program. This would be devastating for Main Street Community Services since the organization would lose a major source of its fundraising revenues. This would be catastrophic to the provision of services to special needs children and youth and their families which Main Street Community Services provides. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why Main Street Community Services is putting out an appeal for more volunteers to join its team to sell these 50/50 tickets at Ottawa Senators home games. And for these volunteers, there is more than

just the ticket selling. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pizza provided when the selling period is over. In addition, there is often a free ticket given to watch the third period of a game. So, you get not only to help out a local organization, Main Street Community Services, which does so much good work with special needs children and youth and their families but you also get to enjoy the excitement of a game night at Canadian Tire Place. Then, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the pizza and getting to watch the third period action. This is a win-win-winwin situation. Main Street Community Services gets revenue based on every volunteer that it provides for the sale of the 50/50 tickets. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that simple. So numbers matter. And besides, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of fun. Just ask members of the Stittsville District Lions Club who regularly participate in this sale of 50/50 tickets at Ottawa Senators games in order to help out Main Street Community Services. They have a great time while also helping out Main Street Community Services.

Other service groups in the community might want to follow this example set by the Lions Club. But whether individuals or a group, Main Street Community Services needs your help in order to continue participating in this fundraising arrangement with the Sens Foundation. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a way to help out a worthwhile organization and the great work that it does with special needs children and youth and their families while also having a good time at Canadian Tire Place, selling the popular 50/50 tickets and then enjoying pizza and a little bit of the hockey action. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t beat it! If you are interested in finding out more about this volunteer opportunity or would like to volunteer to help out in this unique, fun way, contact or call Main Street Community Services at 613831-6606. Main Street Community Services is located in part of the former Stittsville Public School (now Frederick Banting Alternate Program school) on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville.

Schools are one of foundations in Goulbourn township history John Curry


66 Stittsville News EMC - Thursday, November 14, 2013

News- Throughout its history, Goulbourn has had two consistent elements - school and church. These were the two foundations of early settlement. While today’s schools are larger and bear names like A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary School, Goulbourn Middle School, Westwind Public School, Guardian Angels Catholic School, South Carleton High School and Sacred Heart Catholic High School, they are the successors of a tradition of schooling that has been in Goulbourn virtually from the arrival of the first settlers, those disbanded soldiers who were offered land in the newly opened township of Goulbourn, creating a loyal populace to fend off any incursions by American invaders. Richmond, operating as a military settlement from its founding in 1818 to 1822, had its own school, with the teachers paid by the British government. It did not take long, though, for schools to spring up throughout Goulbourn, once the settlers had cleared their land and had established themselves on it. This resulted in a patchwork of one room schoolhouses which sprang up across Goulbourn as well as in Richmond, as education of the young became a priority for Goulbourn’s earliest residents. By 1847, which was less than 30 years after the founding of Richmond, there were eight socalled “common schools” in Goulbourn township, joining 53 others across Carleton County. The creation of local municipalities in 1850 meant the beginning of School Sections, the basis of the school system which would continue for over 100 years before being eliminated with the creation of township-wide school boards in 1964 and eventually county-wide school boards in 1969. The establishment of these School Sections meant that residents in the area around a local one room schoolhouse provided through taxes much of the funds needed to run the school. There were small provincial grants provided, opening the door to provincial inspections of the facility. But it was the three locally elected school trustees who were responsible for the operation of the school, many of whom served in the position for years. A couple of observations about Goulbourn’s one room schoolhouses. One is that many were destroyed by fire, followed by rebuilding. This should not be unexpected in a wooden structure that was heated by a wood stove tended largely by the older students and only occupied during the daytime. Eventually a number of Goulbourn’s schoolhouses were built of stone or brick to eliminate this fire danger. Speaking of stone, Goulbourn’s geography and the increased availability of stone in the western portion of the township meant that any stone schoolhouses that Goulbourn did eventually see were located in this western section of the township. There were no stone schoolhouses in the eastern portion of Goulbourn. The schoolhouses, for the most part, were all located at or near a road connecting two concession roads. This enabled the School Section to serve students from both concessions, maximizing the number of students using the school while limiting as much as possible the distance served by the school. Goulbourn had 16 School Sections as well as the school in Richmond. These School Sections were numbered from No. 1 upwards, starting in concession one in the southwest corner of the township and generally working northward and/or eastward, with S.S. No. 13 being at Ha-

zeldean in the northeast corner of the township. The former one room schoolhouses in Goulbourn were as follows: S.S. No. 1, Dwyer Hill: Located on what is now Purdy Road, S.S. No. 1 dates back before 1879 as Belden’s Atlas of that year shows a school located just west of where the stone schoolhouse of today stands. The original wooden schoolhouse burned down and was replaced with the stone building that still exists in 1900. The building was used as a school until 1964 when it was closed with the coming of the township-wide school board. The building was subsequently auctioned off. In 1986, it was purchased, restored and expanded to be used as a residence. Although there were not Catholic and public schools as there are today, S.S. No. 1 at Dwyer Hill was more or less a Catholic school, given the Catholic dominance of the residents of the surrounding area. SS. No. 2, Jock School: Located on what is now called Jock Trail east of Munster Road, S.S. No. 2 existed prior to 1863 as records have shown that in 1863 it had an enrolment of 48 students. Originally a log building, it was replaced by a stone schoolhouse. Records also show that in 1907, the school had an enrolment of 26 students. It served not only families along the third and second concession lines in this area of Goulbourn but it also served families in the Stapleton area who travelled along the sideroad (now Green’s Road) to access the school. This stone schoolhouse is still standing and serves as a residence. S.S. No. 3, Goulbourn: There is no specific S.S. No. 3. It is believed that families in S.S. No. 3, Goulbourn joined with the village of Richmond and an area of Nepean township to support the Richmond Union Public School in Richmond. A union school existed in an area where those in different municipalities got together to provide a single school to meet their needs. In this case, there were areas of Goulbourn, Nepean and Richmond, all separate municipalities, which combined their resources to have a single school located in Richmond. S.S. No. 4, Goulbourn: This stone schoolhouse became a residence after it closed as a school. It is located on the Franktown Road just west of Dwyer Hill Road. In 1915, it had an enrolment of 12 students. S.S. No. 5, Goulbourn: Initially there was a frame schoolhouse at the southwest corner of what is now Munster Road and Bleeks Road in the heart of Munster. A one room stone schoolhouse was built on the site in 1890 and remained in use until the formation of the township-wide school board in 1964. The school had 38 students around the year 1900 when the teacher earned a salary of $150 to $250 a year. The school averaged between 25 and 45 students during most of its history. The original datestone and school bell can now be found in a commemorative structure at the front of the nearby Munster Union Cemetery. In recent years, the stone schoolhouse has served as a restaurant and a pub. It was severely damaged by fire and recently has been extensively renovated and is being used as a location for meetings, conferences and receptions. S.S. No. 6, Goulbourn: This school, which was always a log or frame structure and never a stone building, is being used as a residence today, standing on what is now Mansfield Road just east of Conley Road.

Schools in Goulbourn’s past Continued from page 66

A school at or near this location goes back before 1863, with the first school being a small log building just west of the current site. A second schoolhouse built of logs stood at the corner of Mansfield Road and Conley Road but the site was found to be too wet. About 1875, a new schoolhouse was built at the present site, on the top of a knoll just east of the sideroad. The school had an average enrolment of 24 students during the period of the 1930’s and 1940’s. This was down from the 1920’s when enrolment was about 50 students. Improvements were made to the facility over the years. For example, a well was drilled in 1938. In 1953, the school was the setting for the production of a BBC TV film in connection with the coronation of Queen Elizabeth. S.S. No. 7, Ashton: This was a union school with School Section No. 12 of Beckwith township. The first school in Ashton was a log building on the northwest corner of the present school site which is on Flewellyn Road in Ashton. This initial building was replaced by a larger log building which in turn was replaced by a large white frame building which was located to the right of the existing building. This white frame building was destroyed by fire in 1924, to be replaced by the brick schoolhouse which was built in 1925 at a cost of $4,000 and which is still standing, used as a residence. From 1934 to 1944, the average enrolment at S.S. No. 7 was 34 students. In 1950, the teacher was paid a salary of $2,100. S.S. No. 8, Goulbourn: Known as the Hilston school, this schoolhouse was located at the northeast corner of Dwyer Hill Road and Flewellyn Road. There was a schoolhouse at this location since before 1863. The original wooden schoolhouse was replaced by a stone schoolhouse in 1874. In 1936, a well was drilled to serve the schoolhouse. The stone schoolhouse, which was vacant at the time, was gutted by fire about 20 years ago and was subsequently leveled. S.S. No. 9, Goulbourn: The so-called Jinkinson School located in the area known as the Pinery was initially a log building located on the south side of what is now Fernbank Road just west of what is now Jinkinson Road. A new frame schoolhouse was built later on the north side of the road. The Brownsville area on what is now the Flewellyn Road sent children to this school, using the nearby sideroad for access. The school was closed in June, 1940 but reopened in 1956 with 28 students. The actual schoolhouse can now be found at the MacSkimming Education Area of the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board. It was moved to that site about 1980. S.S. No. 10, Goulbourn: This school was located at Stanley’s Corners. Initially it was a small log building on the south side of what is now Flewellyn Road, opposite what is now Black’s Road. This initial log building was replaced with another schoolhouse located a little to the east, also on the south side of the road. In 1870, a new frame schoolhouse was built on the north side of the road, opposite the previous school. In 1927, this frame schoolhouse was replaced with a new brick schoolhouse at a cost of $4,500. After this building ceased being a school with the opening of Goulbourn Township Public School at Stanley’s Corners, it served as the temporary initial meeting place for the new Goulbourn township council in 1974 after rural Goulbourn was united with the villages of Stittsville and Richmond. The building then served as the home of

Holy Spirit Catholic Mission from 1967 to 1973. During this time, a major addition was added to the rear of the building. The building is currently a residence with a home business. A cross is still located on the top of the bell tower, a remnant from the days of its use as a Catholic church. S.S. No. 11, Goulbourn: Prior to 1881, this school was located on what is now Flewellyn Road east of Shea Road near the Faulkner Trail. It was probably a log building. It was destroyed by fire in 1881 and a new frame schoolhouse to replace the destroyed one was built on what is now the Fallowfield Road at a cost of $390. The location of the school was changed because the School Section ratepayers felt that the Fallowfield Road location was more central for the majority of the families with children attending the school. In 1924, the frame schoolhouse was replaced by a brick schoolhouse which cost over $5,000. This brick schoolhouse is still standing today and is used as a residence. S.S. No. 12, Goulbourn (Stittsville): Stittsville Public School, located on Carp Road in Old Stittsville (the area between present day Stittsville Main Street and Hazeldean Road), was a union school involving School Sections in both Goulbourn and adjacent Huntley township. In 1875, a frame schoolhouse was built at Old Stittsville following the devastation of the Carleton County Fire of 1870. In 1937, because of expanding enrolment, a room was rented in the basement of the Stittsville Orange Lodge (present day Stittsville Legion Hall) where the senior grades were taught. In 1947, a new two room school built in accordance with a new provincially recommended design was built in Stittsville to replace the Carp Road schoolhouse. The new building, which still exists as part of Frederick Banting Alternate School in the former Stittsville Public School facility on Stittsville Main Street, cost $40,000 and had two classrooms, a principal’s office, a nurse’s room and three washrooms. Community growth saw two more rooms added in 1953, another two rooms added in 1956, three more rooms and an auditorium costing $23,550 added in 1958 with another four room addition costing $110,000 following. In 1962, the basement of the nearby Orange Hall was rented once again and used as a classroom until 1968. In 1967, four second storey classrooms were added over the previous addition. The four classes were taught in the school’s auditorium until the new classrooms were ready. Since Stittsville was a separate municipality from 1961 to 1974, it was not impacted by the 1964 move to a township-wide area school board in Goulbourn, as it retained its own Board of Trustees for S.S. No. 12. However, in 1969, with the creation of the new county school board, Stittsville Public School came under the jurisdiction of the new Carleton Board of Education. Stittsville Public School was replaced by a new facility on Granite Ridge Drive in Stittsville in September, 2005. After being vacant, the former Stittsville Public School facility on Stittsville Main Street became the new home of the Frederick Banting Alternate School which is now in its third year of operation at the facility. S.S. No. 13, Goulbourn: School Section No. 13 of Goulbourn is the schoolhouse at Hazeldean. In 1860, it was a log building located on the north side of what is now Hazeldean Road. It burned down in the Carleton County Fire of 1870 which raced through this area. In 1872, a new schoolhouse was built on the south side of Hazeldean Road east of the Carp River, costing $520. This schoolhouse was sub-

sequently destroyed by fire in 1911. A new block schoolhouse was built to replace it. In 1959, this facility was divided into a two room school. In 1962, this schoolhouse was damaged by fire but it was repaired and modernized and continued in use until the new township-wide school board built the new Glen Cairn Public School in the developing community of Glen Cairn. The Hazeldean Road schoolhouse stood vacant for a number of years before being removed from the site. S.S. No. 14, Goulbourn: This schoolhouse was originally a log building located on what is now Fernbank Road about half a mile west of Shea Road. It burned down in the fire of 1870 and was replaced by a frame building located at the southeast corner of Fernbank Road and Shea Road. The building became a private residence after it was closed as a school. It remained in residential use until acquired by the Community Bible Church which has plans to build a church on the site in the future. The schoolhouse had been designated as a heritage structure by the former Goulbourn Local Architectural Conservation Advisory Com-

mittee due to its status as one of the last remaining examples of a one room frame schoolhouse in Goulbourn. However, the building was deemed to be structurally deficient and it was torn down. One of the conditions of the destruction was that the new church, when it is built, is to have a display area outlining the history of this schoolhouse which stood at the site for over 130 years. S.S. No. 15, Goulbourn: This schoolhouse was located on what is now Huntley Road just north of the village of Richmond. A private house now stands at the site on the east side of Huntley Road at the Richmond village boundary. S.S. No. 16, Goulbourn: This schoolhouse, on the town line between Goulbourn and Huntley in the northwest corner of Goulbourn, was a union school involving S.S. No. 16 of Goulbourn and S.S. No. 9 of Huntley. It also attracted students from nearby Beckwith and Ramsay townships. It initially was a log building which was replaced by a frame schoolhouse about 1898. The school was closed in 1938. Goulbourn students in that area then attended S.S. No. 8, the Hilston School, at the corner of what is now Flewellyn Road and Dwyer Hill Road.

Three world championship medals for Bren Hunter Special to the News

Sports - Bren Hunter of Stittsville is on top of the world. The 15 year old has returned from the Global Combat Sports Organization/World Karate Union (GCO/WKU) 2013 world championships in Greece with not one and not two but three gold medal world champion titles and another three bronze medals. His performance made him a dominating athlete in the junior age division events at these world championships. Bren represented Canada in seven events in these world championships which took place from Oct. 21 to Oct. 26 on the Greek island of Crete. Bren was a member of the 38-member Canadian contingent at these world championships, with Canada as one of 38 countries to participate in the event. Bren reached the podium first by winning a bronze medal in Japanese/Okinawan Traditional Forms. He earned his second bronze medal in Hard Style Forms while his third bronze medal came in the Weapons with No Music event. His golden achievements came in the Junior Boys Musical Weapons and the Junior Boys Traditional Weapons. Bren became 2013 world champion in both of these. Bren’s third gold medal came in Synchronized Team Free Style where he participated with 13 year old teammate Maximillian Kelland of Cantley, Quebec in the age 17 and under grouping. In the 2012 world championships in Orlando, Florida, Bren and Max lost in the finals of the Synchronized Team Free Style category to a duo from the United States. This year, it was something like déjà-vu with Bren and Max seeded in first place after the preliminary rounds, followed by the same United States team that had defeated them the

year before. This was just like the year before but Bren and Max delivered an entertaining and intense final performance, capturing the world championship. United States duos, in fact, took

both the silver and bronze medals in this category. The three world championship gold medals which Bren has won at this year’s world


Bren Hunter of Stittsville stands on the shore in Greece wearing the medals which he collected at the recent Global Combat Sports Organization/World Karate Union world championships. Held on the Greek island of Crete, the championships saw Brent win three world championship gold medals and three world championship bronze medals in his junior age division events.

championships bring Bren’s world championship titles to five as he won his two gold medals in the 2011 World Karate Association world championships in Karlsruhe, Germany. This was Bren’s fifth consecutive year competing as part of the World Karate Association’s Team Canada. Back in September, you may have purchased a raffle ticket from Bren for a gift basket that he was able to put together thanks to the generosity of local Stittsville and Kanata businesses. The proceeds from the draw went to help fund Bren’s training and travel expenses. Bren would like to acknowledge and thank the following businesses for their support in this gift basket raffle: Crazy Horse Stone Grill, Baton Rouge, Napoli’s Café, The Glen Scottish Pub, Pretty Pots, Hurley’s (Stittsville), Mucho Burrito, Popa Sam’s, Giant Tiger, Kungfu Bistro, PartyLite Gifts and Stubbe’s Chocolates. The winner of the basket valued at over $650 was Nancy Eadie of Carp. Bren would also like to thank the following businesses who helped out with his expenses with monetary contributions: Kanata Sports club, Don Cherry’s Kanata, Advanced Software Concepts, Lincoln Heights Ford, Harvey’s (Kanata Centrum), Jiffy Photo, Mancini’s Hairstylists and Jack Uppal of Royal LePage. Thanks also go to Brown’s Your Independent Grocer in Stittsville for providing a venue to display the basket and to sell the tickets. Bren was joined at the recent world championships by several other members of the Canadian Sport Martial Arts Academy martial arts club on Iber Road in Stittsville, namely Stephen Cross, Emma Cross, Sue Lagasi, Victoria Marcotte, Vincent Meh, Melanie Reid, Greg Ross, Kaiser Tam and Ben Stewart. The location of the 2014 world championships has not yet been finalized.

Sacred Heart Huskies lose 1-0 in championship game Special to the News

Sports - Two 1-0 playoff victories had taken the Sacred Heart Catholic High School Huskies junior boys soccer team to the National Capital Secondary Schools Athletic Association championship final. And while the score of this championship final on Thursday, Nov. 7 was also 1-0, it was not the Huskies third straight victory by that score. Rather, in this championship game, the Huskies

were on the losing end of the 1-0 score. The Huskies had advanced to the championship final by defeating St. Pius X High School 1-0 in semi-final playoff action after downing Ridgemont High School 1-0 in quarter final playoff action. This 1-0 championship game loss to Mother Teresa Catholic High School was the third meeting of the season between the two teams. Mother Teresa had shut out the Huskies 3-

0 in the Huskies’ opening game of the high school junior boys soccer tier one league in late September. The two teams met again at the end of the regular season, with the Huskies shutting out Mother Teresa 4-0. The third meeting between the two teams came in the championship game on Thursday, Nov. 7 when Mother Teresa prevailed by a 1-0 score. The Sacred Heart Huskies and Mother Te-

resa had both finished the regular season with identical records of five wins and one loss playing in the six-team West Division of the high school junior boys tier one soccer league. After their season-opening 3-0 loss to Mother Teresa in late September, the Sacred Heart Huskies had rattled off seven straight victories in both regular season and playoff action before falling to Mother Teresa 1-0 in the championship final.

Remembrance ceremony at St. Philip School John Curry

students of St. Philip School, presented in the shape of a red poppy. Rev. Poole wound up the ceremony with a closing prayer thanking God for the gift of peacekeepers in the world. He said that true peacekeeping in the world will only happen if it is in people’s hearts first.

The school’s gymnasium was adorned with poppies on the walls for this ceremony, as well as the words “Lest We Forget.” There were white crosses on display across the front of the stage at the front of the gymnasium and the curtain hiding this stage area had a number of poppies on it.

News - Remembrance was observed at St. Philip Catholic School in Richmond on Thursday, Nov. 7. A Remembrance ceremony hosted by the grade six students with veterans, Legion and Legion Ladies Auxiliary members, serving military and parents in attendance, along with all of the school’s students, took place in the school gymnasium. The ceremony involved a symbolic procession into the assembly, the playing of the Last Post and Reveille, a dramatization of the poem “In Flanders Fields,” two video presentations dealing with Remembrance, an address by guest speaker Commander Mike Speiser of the Canadian military and the presentation of a special “Thank You” mural to the Richmond Legion. It all ended with a special Irish Blessing or Farewell delivered by the students to the assembled crowd, complete with hand movements and lots of good wishes. The ceremony opened with a procession into the gymnasium by participating students, one carrying the Canadian flag with others carrying candles, a wreath, a war helmet, white crosses and more. After the singing of “O Canada” by all those assembled, Rev. Bob Poole of St. Philip’s Parish delivered an opening prayer, after which Major Dave Shaw, Commanding Officer of the Central Band of the Armed Forces, played the Last Post and Reveille, with his trumpet notes filling the gym.

The school choir followed this with the 1955 Pete Seeger song “Where Have All The Flowers Gone?” A video created by students who shared their thoughts of what Remembrance Day means to them followed, after which grade six students presented a short dramatization of the poem “In Flanders Fields.” Another video, this one featuring the song “A Pittance of Time” by Terry Kelly dealing with the two minutes of silence that is observed on Nov. 11th at 11 a.m., led to the remarks by the guest speaker, Commander Mike Speiser, a Richmond resident who recently served on HMCS “Fredericton,” a frigate based in Halifax. Commander Speiser reminded those at this Remembrance ceremony that Remembrance Day on Nov. 11 is a time to remember the ultimate sacrifice paid by those who went into harm’s way to protect what we have in Canada which he described as the best country in the world based on his worldwide travels in the military. “We are truly blessed to be Canadians and live in this wonderful country,” he said. Commander Speiser urged people to take a moment on Nov. 11 at 11 a.m. to remember all those who went to protect what we enjoy in Canada. He suggested that if you see a veteran or someone in uniform and you have a chance, thank them for what they have done or are doing. The students presented the Richmond Legion with a special mural thanking veterans and the military for all that they have done or are doing. The mural features the hand prints of all of the

Thank You from the Energy East Pipeline project team

Energy East Pipeline

Recently, TransCanada visited Horton to discuss our newly proposed Energy East Pipeline project with local community members. Our experts listened as community residents shared their thoughts on a number of topics about the project, including questions around how TransCanada safeguards its pipeline system to how it protects rivers and environmentally sensitive areas along the project route. I’d like to first say thank you to those who joined us at our event. The feedback we receive from each person at these open houses is gathered, recorded and considered as we work toward the planning of the pipeline. It’s an essential part of our engagement process and something we take very seriously. TransCanada has one of the best records in the industry for delivering energy safely and efficiently across North America. In 2012 alone, we spent $1 billion on proactive maintenance programs to protect our pipelines. It’s these types of commitments that ensure our projects are developed in the safest and most socially responsible manner possible, and Energy East will be no exception. Special measures will be used when crossing rivers and other sensitive areas to help further protect the environment. Some of these include adding thicker-walled pipe and placing extra sensors and valve systems closer together in these important areas. We will also monitor the pipeline 24 hours a day with the ability to remotely shut it down within minutes anywhere along the route, and will place specialized equipment and field crews along the entire project to monitor, maintain and respond immediately if needed. Pipelines are the safest way to transport oil across North America and our oil pipelines are among the newest and safest ever built. I’ve been in this industry for over 30 years so I can tell you firsthand that no one has a stronger interest in the protection of TransCanada’s pipelines than we do. That’s why we continuously adopt new technologies and new programs to improve our systems every day. Thank you once again for hosting us in your community and sharing your thoughts. Our events are designed to ensure we achieve one important goal: to communicate one-on-one with each individual who attends our open houses. We appreciate your hospitality and look forward to meeting with you again very soon. For more information about our project, please visit us at Sincerely,

Steve Pohlod President Energy East Pipeline Project

Renowned columnist speaking in Stittsville Special to the News

News - A man once named best columnist in Canada will be bringing his storytelling talents to Stittsville this Saturday, Nov. 16. Dave Brown, retired after a 38 year newspaper career although he still writes periodically for the Ottawa Citizen, has over the years interviewed and profiled many military veterans and it is these military men which will be the focus of his

remarks at the upcoming November meeting of the Goulbourn Historical Society. Mr. Brown will be speaking on “Military Men” at the Historical Society’s meeting this Saturday, Nov. 16 at 1:30 p.m. at the Stittsville Legion Hall on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville. Everyone is welcome to attend, whether an Historical Society member or not.

Those who do plan to attend are urged to bring along any military memorabilia concerned relatives or friends who served in the military. At this meeting, you will get to hear Dave Brown who wrote more than 10,000 columns in his 38 year journalism career from which he retired in Aug. 2003. On his retirement, the Ottawa Citizen called him “a legend” because of his consistently high readership.

Indeed, he continues to write occasional columns for the newspaper. During his career, he has produced columns on subjects as diverse as ethics shortcomings among the professions to excesses of the child protection system. He has focused on the horrors of war through the eyes of veterans. Mr. Brown began in journalism at the age of 15, writing a high school newsletter on Manitoulin Island. His work caught the attention of the editor of the weekly Manitoulin Expositor who he eventually worked for.

In 1957, he accepted a reporting job with the Sudbury Daily Star. Three years later, he became a night police reporter for the Ottawa Journal. In 1966, he began writing a column called “Below the Hill,” focusing his attention on Ottawa at street level. In 1978, the Ottawa Citizen hired him to write a daily column called “Brown’s Beat. “ In 1996, he was given the title “senior editor” at the Ottawa Citizen in recognition of his long service and high readership.

Remembrance Day ceremony at Goulbour Middle School John Curry

News - Videos of significance, a presentation of “In Flanders Fields” combined with John Lennon’s iconic song “Imagine,” songs and poems, a dramatic skit about soldiers and remembering, the laying of wreaths, the playing of The Last Post and Reveille and remarks from a serving member of the military – all these happened at the annual Remembrance Day ceremony at Goulbourn Middle School last Monday, Nov. 11. But this was not all – far from it.

Student MC’s Jacob Schroeder and Areena Akhter not only introduced the various segments of the program but also they gave some background about the World Wars, the Korean War and Afghanistan. In addition, the school’s gymnasium, site of the Remembrance Day ceremony, was adorned on its walls with poppies, white crosses, silhouettes of soldiers on guard, planes, the names of all those who have died in Afghanistan and all those Canadians who have been awarded the Victoria Cross. It was a setting that set the tone for what went on in the gymna-

sium. “Today we join together in a special time dedicated to the memory and recognition of the many men and women who gave us all the ultimate gift – their lives – in return for the peace and freedom we so freely enjoy,” teacher Ms. Jennifer Shipley said in her introductory remarks. “Today we reflect on the true value of the gift of peace, what it meant to those brace enough to pursue it, and what it means in our lives at this moment in time,” she added. A group of grade seven students performed a combination of “In Flanders Fields” and “Imagine,” altering verses in the poem with lyrics from the song. This was followed by student Gabe Maahs reading the poem “We Shall Keep The Fair,” written by Moina Michael in 1918 as a response to John McCrae’s poem “In Flanders

Fields.” A video featuring the song ‘A Pittance of Time” by Terry Kelly, focused on the two minutes of silence which happens at 11 a.m. on Nov. 11, was next on the program, followed by the student group “The G Notes” singing “We Shall Overcome” accompanied by music teacher Fred Donkor on the guitar. Five students from Ms. Shipley’s class then presented a dramatic skit entitled “Toy Soldiers,” with students Andrew Cross, Isaac Maniloff, Abbey Wilson, Katie Chen and Charlotte O’Brien in the narrated performance. Another video entitled “Remembrance Day 2013” featuring scenes from Vimy Ridge, Passchendaele, Dieppe, Ortona, Normandy, the Netherlands, Korea and Afghanistan followed, after which the poem “Je me souviens” was recited.

A wreath laying ceremony followed, with a pair of students from each class at the school placing a class wreath around three white crosses which were on the stage. “Today we honour the memory of those people who gave their lives and continue to serve to ensure that peace would have a chance to grow and flourish,” said MC Jacob Schroeder. “Students at GMS will also place a wreath from each class to honour those men and women.” During the wreath laying, “The G Notes” student group sang “Where Have All The Flowers Gone.” Student Sarah Brodmann then red “Two Minutes” after which teacher Mrs. Karen Wiggins played The Last Post and Reveille on the trumpet, filling the gymnasium with the iconic notes of these traditional songs.

Afghanistan veteran speaks at ceremony Continued from page 83

Guest speaker Corporal Kevin Riddell, in his remarks to the assembled students, parents (including some in uniform) and guests like Ottawa Carleton District School Board trustee Lynn Scott, urged the students to understand the gravity associated with Remembrance Day and urged them to learn from the ceremony. He

said that people know the meaning of Christmas, of the Easter Bunny, of Halloween but perhaps not the true meaning of Remembrance Day. He said that he joined the military at the age of 18 and has now gone on three deployments to Afghanistan. He showed some video photos of some of those that he knew that have died in Afghanistan.

Students both entered and exited the Remembrance Day ceremony in silence as a mark of respect and reverence. Throughout the ceremony, student MCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gave some background glimpses about the various wars in which Canada has been involved. It was explained that in the years leading up to World War One, ten-

sion built up among European countries. Eventually Germany invaded Belgium and the war was underway. Canada, with a population then of only 7.2 million, saw 600,000 men and women enlist for duty. With regard to World War Two, Adolph Hitlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attempt to dominate Europe led to the invasion of Poland and the Second World War. In 1939, Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population was just over 11 million. Over one million people enlisted and served in the

war effort. The Korean War, from 1950 to 1953, sees the 60th anniversary of its ending marked this year. Canada sent 26,000 troops to Korea in this war. Afghanistan has been Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longest war, with the combat mission coming to an end after ten years but the Canadian presence remains there in training and peace initiatives. A total of 158 Canadians have been killed in Afghanistan.

Hallmark Stittsville holds grand opening John Curry

News - There was Percy the Penguin at the door, greeting customers while armed with treats for youngsters. There was Ottawa artist Katerina Mertikas in attendance autographing Unicef Christmas cards featuring her artwork. And there was a “Spin the Wheel” game, with customers qualifying for a spin and a chance to win a prize with every purchase, all looked after by the store’s very own version of Wheel of Fortune hostess Vanna White, namely Caitlin Sabourin. This was just some of the special happenings at the grand opening of Hallmark Stittsville in its new premises at Crossing Bridge Square plaza in Stittsville last Saturday. There was, of course, much more, such as goodie bags for the first 50 customers and an opportunity to win prizes by filling out a ballot. There were tasty treats from Stonewall Kitchen and British goodies to sample. There were specials on jewellery from Chamilia and Kameleon. A pair of tickets to an Ottawa Senators home game went to Kim Hendsbee while winning spins in the “Spin the Wheel” game resulted in prizes including 50 percent off on a purchase. Store owner Bob Wild, who operates a dozen Hallmark stores in Ottawa and area, was on hand and gave great credit to Hallmark Stittsville store manager Carole Parker and her staff for the organization of the grand opening event and all its attractions. This Hallmark store is, of course, not new to Stittsville and area customers because the store has been located at the Shops of Main Street plaza at Stittsville Main Street and Carp Road for the past ten years. A decision was made to relocate to the premises at the Crossing Bridge Square plaza beside the Farm Boy store in order to enjoy slightly larger premises, hoped-for increased foot traffic and an expanse of window display space. Crossing Bridge Square plaza also has a spacious parking lot. The aisles in the new premises are wider, making them more wheelchair friendly. Hallmark stores in the Ottawa area go back to 1945 when Harold Wyman founded what was then called the Davis Agency, with a store on Sparks Street that was then followed by stores at the Billings Bridge and Carlingwood Shopping Centres. Originally a magazine subscription business, Davis Agency added several major product

lines over the years including record albums, greeting cards, jewellery, floral products, pens and small leather goods. All of these product lines except for magazine subscriptions are still offered at Hallmark stores. The stores traded under the name The Davis Agency until the late 1990’s and early 2000’s when the stores were re-branded to Hallmark stores. Hallmark products today include greeting cards for all occasions, keepsake ornaments to create special memories around the Christmas tree, a selection of books, gift wrap, stationery, party supplies and puzzles, gifts for all occasions, unique home and garden décor, a selection of Yankee candles, wall décor, textiles and frames, gourmet food products such as GourJOHN CURRY/METROLAND met Village and Stonewall Kitchen, fashion jewellery, bath and body care items, collect- Hallmark Stittsville store owner Bob Wild, right, presents customer Kim Hendsbee, left, ibles including Willow Tree and Boyd’s Bears, with a prize of some Ottawa Senators tickets at the grand opening of Hallmark Stittsville calendars, journals, address books and diaries. in its new premises at the Crossing Bridge Square plaza in Stittsville last Saturday.

News - The Holiness Movement Church, which founded and operated the campgrounds in Stittsville for almost 60 years, is quite a story in itself. Ralph C. Horner, who was the founder of the Holiness Movement Church, was certainly familiar with camp meetings, as he himself was converted in 1872 at the age of 17 at a Methodist camp meeting near his Shawville home. Although he became an effective evangelist, he was expelled from the Methodist church in 1895 as church leaders became antagonistic to him and his tent campaigns. With his explusion in 1895, Mr. Horner and some of his sympathizers and supporters organized a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wesleyan Connectionâ&#x20AC;? at Ottawa. This spread westward across Canada as well as to Australia, Ireland, Egypt and China. When incorporation was achieved in 1900, the name was changed to the Holiness Movement Church in Canada. The first legislation to have it incorporated as the Wesleyan Methodist Connection of Canada or even the Christian Connection of Canada had been blocked in 1896 as a result of Methodist pressure. This was why the

name was changed to the Holiness Movement Church in Canada, with Mr. Horner designated as Bishop of the new church, a post which in 1926 became General Superintendent. Even early on, such as in 1896, the Holiness Movement Church had its supporters, with 36 circuits, 1090 members and 4553 adherents. Evangelistic fervor saw the Holiness Church establish churches in Ottawa, Stittsville, Munster, Carsonby, Fallowfield and other places, eventually spreading across Canada. Although there was a split in 1916 with the emergence of the Standard Church, the Holiness Movement Church continued to grow. To provide a trained ministry and a missionary force, Annesley College in Ottawa flourished for years. There was also another such training school in the West. Mission work received special emphasis in the Holiness Movement Church. The churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first foreign work was in Egypt, beginning in 1899. By 1959, when the Holiness Movement Church merged with the Free Methodist Church, the Holiness Movement Church was the second largest Protes-

tant mission in Egypt, with 5000 members in 80 churches. The Holiness Movement Church also had foreign missions in Hong Kong and Brazil. It established a church in Ireland in 1904. Bishop Horner himself died in 1921. For many years, the Holiness Movement Church had a publishing program centered in Ottawa, with a book store, Sunday School paper and two magazines. As early as 1953, there is a report of a secret ballot among the Holiness Movement of the Eastern Conference to discover which holiness denomination the adherent of the Movement would prefer to affiliate with should they feel it was in their interest to approach any. The vote was strongly in favouring of joining with the Free Methodist Church. In September, 1957, the General Conference of the Holiness Movement Church meeting in Winnipeg went on record as favouring union and in 1958, the annual conference approved it. In Kingston in Octiber, 1958, the leaders of the two churches â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Holiness Movement Church and the Free Methodist Church â&#x20AC;&#x201C; met to work out the details of the merger. The final agreement was approved and signed in December in Ottawa.

Music served at Coffee House John Curry

News - It’s called a Coffee House but it really should be called a Music House. That’s because what is served at it is not coffee but music. Another of the semi-annual coffee houses staged at South Carleton High School in Richmond happened on Thursday evening, Nov. 7 with over 30 songs presented by students, either as soloists or duets or small groups. Guitars were an instrument of choice for many of the performers while a keyboard also came into play on a number of songs. The two scheduled 16-song halves were divided by a brief intermission, creating a two and a half hour show. Among the performers was “Storm Surge,” the school’s glee club, which opened the second half of the coffee house show singing “It’s Time,” the 2011 song by the American alternative rock band Imagine Dragons, complete with foot stomping and hand clapping movements. The performers in this coffee house ranged from first timers to those singing their own

songs to those who had performed in previous coffee houses. Kathryn Fitzgerald, who sang “Anyone Else But You,” admitted that this performance was the first time that she had played a guitar in front of an audience. Alyssa Glennie sang her original composition “Blue,” a song that she wrote for her little sister’s birthday. Jenna Mckeown, who has performed previously in a coffee house at South Carleton, performed in this coffee house, as did keyboard player Nadia Khawas and guitar player Ben Linton. But whether coffee shop rookies or veterans, each performer delivered a unique performance, all well received by the audience of over 200 in the school’s cafetorium. Among the performers were Jay Maisonneuve, Maddi Hamilton, Liz Cathcart, Ben Linton, Alyssa Glennie, Alyssa Powell, Jenna Mckeown, Mckenna Bebee, Vic Quirk, Madi Stevens, Ross Morgan, Mercedes Kellar, Nadia Khawas, Sarah Hearne, Victoria Calogeracos, Sam Linton, Lindsay Allen, Hannah Mackellar, Aly Sprague, Emily Gaus and Michael Ruhs.

Hand-me-down box from Regina causes discord between Emerson and Everett

Mary Cook’s Memories Lifestyle - The station master had called that morning. It didn’t matter what Father had planned for the day, it would have to be put on hold. More important was going into Renfrew and bringing home the hand-me-down box that had arrived from Regina. When we got home from school, there it was, sitting in the middle of the kitchen, a big square wooden box that at one time had held bulk tea. It was lined with a kind of foil, and until it was opened after supper, there it would sit with its lid nailed shut. Of course, we didn’t lay a finger on it until after the kitchen had been ‘redded’ up, and our hands washed. I was never sure why we had to wash our hands before we could touch a dirty wood box that had come all the way from Regina on the train. Finally, we were ready. We sat around the box on kitchen chairs while Everett pried the lid off with a crowbar. There would be nothing in it but boys clothes, since Aunt Lizzie, the sender of the hand-medown box had only sons, and there was really nothing in the box to interest my sister Audrey and me. So often we chose to sit at the kitchen table looking through Eaton’s catalogue while my three brothers and Mother pawed through

the big box of clothes. Father, of course, showed no interest at all. He was in his usual position in front of the Findlay Oval, half asleep in the rocking chair. But that night, Audrey and I joined the circle as piece after piece of boys’ clothes, along with pants and jackets that had belonged to Uncle Jack, were taken out. Down in the very bottom was a pair of men’s shiny shoes. Well! Emerson grabbed them before anyone else had a chance and claimed them as his own. The brothers had a pair each of well worn laced boots kept for church, and gum rubbers which they wore to school. Never had any of the three owned a pair of shiny black leather shoes. Everett thought because he was the oldest, they should belong to him. Emerson roared that he saw them first, and said there would be a ‘roary’ eyed fight if Everett tried to claim them. “They don’t look like they fit you,” Mother said. There was no doubt Emerson was bigger by far than Everett, but Emerson already had his gum rubbers off and cramming his feet into the shoes. He was getting red in the face, and it didn’t take a genius to see that the shoes were a good inch shorter than Emerson’s enormous

feet, but he was going to own them and that’s all there was to it. Before there was any further discussion, he carried the shoes upstairs and put them under the bed he shared with Earl and dared anyone to lay a finger on them. He never once tried them on all week, but every night he brought them downstairs and rubbed them with an old piece of long ‘johns’ from the rag bag. “I’ll be wearing those to church on Sunday,” he announced every night. Well, Sunday came, and after the morning chores, we all got dressed for church. Emerson came downstairs, walking like he had a bag of potatoes under his pants, but wearing the new shoes. Mother asked him why he was walking so funny, and he said he was breaking in the shoes. My sister Audrey said under her breath, “I think the shoes are breaking in him!” He hobbled into church, hobbled out, and could barely make it back into the house when we got home where he fell into the nearest chair and pulled off the new shiny black shoes. He let out a sigh of relief and then pulled off his socks. “What happened to your toes?” I asked him. They were as red as a beet and he had to use his fingers to unbend them.

Everett was ready to claim the shoes when Emerson said he could buy them if he wanted, but he certainly wasn’t getting them for nothing. “They are my shoes, and they stay my shoes until you pay for them,” Emerson said, rubbing his toes trying to get the cramps out of them. Well, that’s when Mother entered the fray. She got up from the kitchen table, walked over to where Emerson and the new shiny black shoes were, grabbed them off the floor, and handed them to Everett. She never said a word. She didn’t have to. Everett slipped off his laced boots, and even with heavy grey work socks, he was able to slip his feet in easily. They fit him like they had been made for him. Emerson hardly spoke to Everett for three days. The hand-me-down box never arrived that there wasn’t an argument over who was to get what. Only when the brothers came to blows and were rolling around on the floor, clutching the piece of clothing the fight was over, would Mother call a halt. She could stand just so much of the carry-on, and then she would give each a slap on the side of the head, or a yank on an ear, while Father, sitting in his rocking chair, never took his eyes off the Ottawa Farm Journal.
